The GM ruled that we didn’t get XP for killing the boss because an enemy caster’s spell killed them. Is this allowed?

We are playing Rise of the Runelords, and were fighting Nualia and her minions in Thisletop. During the heat of the battle, Nualia was near death at just 12 HP. Her minion caster fireballed the party that surrounded her. The party survived via making the save or simply soaking the damage. The fireball killed Nualia, and the party killed the rest of the minions.

When it came to tallying the XP, the GM rationalized that since party did not deliver the killing blow to Nualia, we do not receive XP for her demise – but we get the XP for killing the remaining minions.

Can the GM do this, and is it legal?

The form cannot be displayed in browser because use of session cookies has been disabled in the browser

I am new in SharePoint. I’m receiving the following error while accessing SharePoint online form using c-sharp

“The form cannot be displayed in the browser because the use of session cookies has been disabled in the current browser settings. In order to load the form, session cookies must be allowed.”

I also tried with following attempts, but did not found solution.

  1. Enabled the session cookie in the browser.

  2. Added the httpOnlyCookies tag and set to false in web.config

Logrotate not doing his job, hdd full because of logs

I have a small microSD ( 3GB ) on a ARM Samsung Artik, with Ubuntu installed.

I have installed syslog-ng and Logrotate to manage my logs, because otherwise my memory get filled quickly.

My problem is with /var/log/daemon.log.1 and /var/log/syslog.1, they are growing quickly and filling the disk, I must delete them manually when they are >500MB.

When I check my config, I have

systemctl status syslog-ng ● syslog-ng.service - System Logger Daemon    Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/syslog-ng.service; enabled; vendor preset: enabled)    Active: active (running) since Thu 2019-09-26 07:07:34 CEST; 1 day 1h ago      Docs: man:syslog-ng(8)   Process: 19072 ExecReload=/bin/kill -HUP $  MAINPID (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS)  Main PID: 2079 (syslog-ng)     Tasks: 1    Memory: 30.7M       CPU: 36min 58.590s    CGroup: /system.slice/syslog-ng.service            └─2079 /usr/sbin/syslog-ng -F 

And logrotate:

cat /var/lib/logrotate/status  logrotate state -- version 2 "/var/log/syslog" 2019-9-27-6:25:3 "/var/log/dpkg.log" 2019-9-1-6:25:2 "/var/log/error" 2019-9-25-6:53:50 "/var/log/auth.log" 2019-7-7-6:25:2 "/var/log/apt/term.log" 2019-9-1-6:25:2 "/var/log/apt/history.log" 2019-9-1-6:25:2 "/var/log/alternatives.log" 2019-8-1-6:25:2 "/var/log/debug" 2019-9-13-6:43:24 "/var/log/kern.log" 2019-7-7-6:25:2 "/var/log/ufw.log" 2019-9-27-6:0:0 "/var/log/daemon.log" 2019-9-27-6:25:3 "/var/log/wtmp" 2019-9-1-6:25:2 "/var/log/mail.warn" 2019-9-27-6:0:0 "/var/log/btmp" 2019-9-1-6:25:2 "/var/log/mail.err" 2019-9-27-6:0:0 "/var/log/" 2019-9-27-6:0:0 "/var/log/cron.log" 2019-7-7-6:25:2 "/var/log/messages" 2019-9-27-6:25:3 

Here it seems that daemon.log and syslog.log are being rotated.

here is /etc/logrotate.d/daemon

/var/log/daemon.log {         monthly         size 25M         rotate 6         compress         delaycompress         missingok         notifempty         create 644 root root } 

But when I run manually

logrotate -f /etc/logrotate.conf 

Files are not rotating.

When I do:

logrotate -vf /etc/logrotate.conf 

files are actually rotated, but I don’t know how to make it automatic…

Any why is this happening ?

I can’t purge old kernels because of unmet deps

I’m trying to free space on disk, because when I try to install anything I get back

The following packages have unmet dependencies:  linux-image-extra-4.4.0-133-generic : Depends: linux-image-4.4.0-133-generic but it is not going to be installed  linux-image-generic : Depends: linux-image-4.15.0-64-generic but it is not going to be installed                        Recommends: thermald but it is not going to be installed  linux-modules-extra-4.15.0-64-generic : Depends: linux-image-4.15.0-64-generic but it is not going to be installed or                                                   linux-image-unsigned-4.15.0-64-generic but it is not going to be installed E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution). 

Also when i try to remove old kernels I got same message. Ofc I tried -f and other techniques from this answer How do I resolve unmet dependencies after adding a PPA? But nothing help. Any clue how can i remove old kernels and get rid of those unmet dependencies?

Locked out of dedicated server because of chmod

So, I accidentally ran chmod -x / instead of what I meant to, and therefore broke a load of stuff on my server. Because of this, I can’t do things like log into the normal way, and am having to use other methods.

I tried this Fix permissions of server after accidental chmod but just got tons of permission issues that look a bit like “changing permission of ‘/proc/sys/net/etc..” and then it still does not work. I also get this for a lot of other directories.

If you could let me know how to fix this or any other information you need, that would be great.

I can’t install Ubuntu because of a problem related to partition alignment?

The hard disk of my computer failed, so I bought a new external hard disk, to install Ubuntu on it, and let me use my computer.

I have experience installing Ubuntu in a USB flash memory,

So I followed those steps and everything was going fine until in the window of partition menu I pressed the “Install Now” button.

Data: My new HDD is of one tera, “Adata” is the brand, it is connected by a USB cable.

It appeared the following warning:

The partition /dev/adb5 assigned to / starts at an offset of 2048 bytes from the minimum alignment for this disk, which may lead to very poor performance. Since you are formatting this partition, you should correct this problem now by realign the partition, as it will be difficult to change later, to do this go back to the main partition menu, delete the partition, and recreate it in the same position with the same settings. This will cause the partition to start at a point best suited for this disk.

There were also three buttons: “x”, “cancel” and “accept”. Whichever I click on it returns me to the partition menu.

I do as the message says: I erase all the partitions and created a new one using it as / but that doesn’t solves the problem, and the warning appears again, I do not know what I am doing wrong.

Using the program gparted is not helping nor working at all.

I would like to install it although it would have a low performance, but it doesn’t let me.

I’ve been also creating two or more partitions, for example I created one of the size of half of the disk and the second of the rest of the size, this changes the offset bytes number that appears in the warning, but that does not solve the problem.

Monitor process, because writing stuck sometimes for 1 second


Linux local 5.0.0-27-lowlatency #28-Ubuntu SMP PREEMPT Tue Aug 20 20:33:37 UTC 2019 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux 


Sometimes, when I am writing, cursor stuck for second and then it write many same chars, form example rrrrr, etc.

I believe this is caused by some process.


Is some good tool for monitoring and search which process do it? I tried top, but quite difficult to find “bad” process. Better no GUI app please.

I have suspicion for these processes (in evolution, when answer email as RE), or java process (dbeaver).

Question 2

Is possible to do something with that? For fluent running of system.
