Error

[SOLVED] Segmentation faulty tree…

I had this issue where I could not install anything new in my Ubuntu server. After some searching I come to lean that the packages cache seemed to be corrupted

# symptom is something such as this
root@media:~# apt-get update
root@media:~# apt-get install htop

Reading package lists… Done
Segmentation faulty tree… 50%

# and this is what fixed the problem
# you need to be as root or su into root
sudo rm /var/cache/apt/*.bin

I am happy again.

PlayStation Network Down (Again)

It would seem once again Sony’s PlayStation Network is down again. After trying many of the online tips and even going as far as to boot my router (problem is so not my router) this issue persists.

It seems that Sony has responded to the issue and acknowledges there are ongoing problems, but offer not details to what this problem is or an ETA for its resolution.  Even attempts to log into their website indicate they are under some site maintenance and the server (WHAT SERVER) is down.

The error code provided on the console “80710A06” also uninformative.

 

Update 1: PSN is acknowledging on its EU blog that the network outage may be a result of “the possibility of targeted behavior by an outside party.” Still no ETA for when services will be restored.

Update 2: PSN is now reporting that the network may be offline for “a full day or two.”

 

Sony PlayStation Error 80710B20

It seems Sony’s PlayStation Network is once again down.   This morning I was not able to get online “Error 80710B20” when I attempted to log into my PlayStation Account.  For now its unknown as to why this is happening.  All support steps provided have failed me.  I will update this post with new info I find.  For now I am game-less.

Thanks Sony, for messing up my free time.

 

— Update

So, after keeping my PlayStation off for about 10 minutes and attempting to log in the problem seems to have resolved itself.

How I got my eth0 back

After a recent Ubuntu Linux (server) installation inside in a virtual machine, I decided to move the virtual machine to new a new host where I can run it.  After the move I noticed that I could no longer connect to my system via the IP I had assigned.  So the story begins.

With the discovery that I no longer had network connectivity, I did an ‘ifconfig’ and noticed that my eth0 was missing.  So, I tried to force it to start by issuing the command ‘ifup eth0’ and go the following error:

eth0: ERROR while getting interface flags: No such device…
SIOCSIFADDR: No such device
eth0: ERROR while getting interface flags: No such device
eth0: ERROR while getting interface flags: No such device
Bind socket to interface: No such device
Failed to bring up eth0

I did some searching, as I have run into this issue in my past and could not remember for the life of me what I needed to do to correct this problem (the right way).  The method I used in the past was to edit /etc/network/interfaces and change iface eth0 inet (static or dhcp) to eth1  This would change my static or dynamic settings to use the new interface…  This is not what I wanted to; “lazy admin approach”.

What I did do is… wait! Here is some background info:  When a Virtual Machine starts up, it generates a new MAC address and a new UUID for the guest system. My system had already known of a MAC address and thus made a new one.

Back to what I did to correct my problem

Locating the file /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules, I removed the former MAC address info and modified the new one, changing the existing eth1 to eth0, and issued a restart

Example:
# PCI device 0x8086:0x100f (e1000)
SUBSYSTEM==”net”, DRIVERS==”?*”, ATTRS{address}=”[bad mac]”, NAME=”eth0″
