A Linux distribution is an operating system made as a software collection based on the Linux kernel and, often, on a package management system and are available for a variety of systems. A typical Linux distribution comprises a Linux kernel, GNU tools and libraries, additional software, documentation, a window system (the most common being the X Window System), a window manager, and a desktop environment. Most Linux systems are open-source software made available both as compiled binaries and in source code form, allowing modifications to the original software. Over three hundred distributions are in active development, including commercially backed distributions (such as Fedora, openSUSE and Ubuntu) and community-driven distributions (such as Debian, Slackware, Gentoo and Arch Linux).

i'm trying to install an IRC client on my Debian Gnome Desktop.

Every IRC client comes up with a plethora of unresolved dependencies

i've tried apt-get and the GUI package manager when apt-get didn't want to auto resolve the dependencies.

the GUI package manager lists the app i want to install, then i click the check box to install it, click apply changes, and it looks like the progress bar goes from 0 to 100 real quick, and then it shows the package as installed...

but when i go to run the app, it is missing, and i go back into package manager and it shows not installed

i haven't had this problem before--both apt-get and package manager have been real good to me

thanks for suggestions

I am using rubinus 3.86 and CentOS7(x86_64).
The installation directory is / var / home / ap / rubinius.

I attempted to install nio4r using the gem command and it failed.
The log at that time is as follows.

It is described as "method_missing", but what does it mean?

Background

I am setting up a AWS server for my company and I have used an Ubuntu 16.04 server AMI.

In order to allow GUI access I have installed XRDP and the Mate (v 1.12.1) desktop (click here to see the instructions I followed)

Problem

After some initial permissions problems with the 'ubuntu/.config' folder I have been able to log in successfully. HOWEVER when I log in I am getting duplicate 'desktop furniture' in that I have two system menus, two workspace controllers, two trash cans and two 'power control' icons (top-right corner - looks like an old toggle switch)

Also when I select the restart the machine (from the top-right drop-down menu) it doesn't always take effect - sometimes I have to do it twice. I suspect I am selecting the wrong menu from the two that are there.

If I log on using another user account the problem has gone - there is only one system menu etc... This shows that it is clearly a user profile setting but i have no idea how to resolve - after all I didn't double install anything.

Can anyone tell me how to resolve this ?

Example of the duplicate Mate desktop

Hello All,

I have suse 11u4 installed but having 3.0.101-107 kernel . But i need 3.0.101-63 as one module only works with "3.0.101-63".

this  "3.0.101-63" comes with default ISO from SLES but when i ma trying to install or upgrade in both situation in last it gives either dependency issue or rpm exec issue something. due to GLIBC.

I have only 2 opton to fix it:

2. Shifting or reload current module which is configured for "3.0.101-107" to "3.0.101-63" but dont know how.

Pease help

What is the difference between realms and domain_realm?   Also, what is realm ?

[realms]
    MYSERVER.COM = {
        kdc = kdc.myserver.com:88
        admin_server = kdc.myserver.com:749
        default_domain = myserver.com
    }

[domain_realm]
    .myserver.com = MYSERVER.COM
     myserver.com = MYSERVER.COM


From the client,  how do I check which is one is the kerberos server?
