(Updated, 2020 Jun) Prevent Debian Linux randomly reboot on Biostar NM70I-847

Disclaimer: The article here is provided “as is” without any warranties. The article may not suit your situation. Use at your own risk.

I have a NM70I-847 motherboard, and I installed Debian 9 Stretch on it recently. After installation, the system began to reboot randomly without any warning.

I used to run Debian 7 Wheezy on this motherboard, the RC6 sleep feature of the CPU’s graphics need to be disabled to prevent such issue. It should be very easy to fix just need to add parameter i915.i915_enable_rc6=0to grub boot option.

But the method seems not working (or deprecated) — after applied the fix computer still keep rebooting on its own. Message like the following can be observed from dmesg:

i915: unknown parameter 'i915_enable_rc6' ignored

Yep, that’s why this fix is not working, because this parameter has been ignored by system. Continue reading (Updated, 2020 Jun) Prevent Debian Linux randomly reboot on Biostar NM70I-847

Ubuntu, SSH login very slow

Server: Ubuntu 14.04

It’s very slow when SSH into the server.
After type the password and press enter, I have to wait about 5 secs before I can see the command prompt. Finally I found there was a process

python3 /usr/lib/update-notifier/apt-check --human-readable

holding the login procedure.

This script is used to display package updates info when you login (like “XXX packages can be updated”). And it’s called by “/etc/update-motd.d/90-updates-available” during the login procedure.

So in order to speed up the login procedure, I commented out all lines in


no talloc stackframe at ../source3/param/loadparm.c:4864, leaking memory

Newly installed Ubuntu 14.04 server and samba on a new PC.
When I was trying to create an array by execute the mdadm command with sudo, I got this error message:

no talloc stackframe at ../source3/param/loadparm.c:4864, leaking memory

Somehow, the sudo command was successfully completed, but the error message is annoying. I was thinking this maybe a mdadm bug, but after tried some other commands – I found each time when I was execute a command with sudo I got this error message. Weird! After googling around I found some pages relating to this problem. Looks like this seems to be a issue with samba and libpam-smbpass?

make: *** No rule to make target `uninstall’. Stop.

之前编译了个软件用,后来要删除,结果试了下make uninstall后得到

make: *** No rule to make target `uninstall'.  Stop.

首先,把make install所做的步骤给存到remove.txt这个文件里:

make -n install > remove.txt


/usr/bin/install -c -m 755 -s foo.bar /usr/sbin


Can’t start tightvncviewer in Ubuntu

When I was trying to start tightvncviewer in Ubuntu, I got this exception:

After some searching I found out install OpenJDK Java runtime can solve this problem.

sudo apt-get install openjdk-7-jre
