Firefox and newer no longer SSL support keys less than 1024 bits. This means you need to create a new set of keys for Webmin.
The easiest way to fix this is from Webmin using a different browser (like current versions of Chrome/Chromium) that let you bypass this type of error. Just login to the Webmin web UI and select:
Webmin -> Webmin Configuration -> SSL Encryption -> Self Signed Certificate.
Fill in the form and then click the
button. This will update your self-signed certificate for Webmin and you will now be able to access the page from Firefox (With the usual browser warning about an untrusted connection)
Press Ctrl+Alt+F3 and login into the shell.
sudo ls -lah | grep .Xauthority
if the result looks like:
-rw——- 1 root root 53 Nov 29 10:19 .Xauthority
sudo chown yourusername:yourusername .Xauthority
Recently one of my systems started waiting for an enter key on a reboot. I usually run this system as a headless server so this meant it never would reboot properly. I found this workaround.
sudo grub-editenv unset recordfail
The upgrade went smoothly, there were no issues at all. Post upgrade, I decided that I now like Unity better than Gnome 3. I’ve only tried HUD a few times, and I’m not sure I’ll use it, but it doesn’t work in Gnome 3 which is one for going back to Unity. I added the ppa for the “unsettings” program so that I could turn off the overlay scrollbars and global menus. The program ran well enough but crashed when I tried to close it.
Three machines to go, I think I’ll wait a bit longer for them. I have downloaded Precise onto my apt-mirror in preparation.
So I started having segmentation faults on my Oneiric based HTPC today. There was a bug filed, and probably a fix coming but I decided to try upgrading to Precise instead. The upgrade was flawless, no problems with ATI drivers, even Cardapio and Handbrake were still working after the upgrade. Amazing. I was already running Unity on that system and it’s working well. I haven’t done any tweaks yet or tried HUD. But it looks good.
