I am planning to dual boot my computer with Windows 10 and Ubuntu on Legacy mode

which should I use for legacy Rufus or Universal USB installer? Or does it even matter? I had a dual boot system of ubuntu and 8.1 but I fresh installed windows 10(used rufus to create bootable usb selecting MBR not GPT) and the system boots straight to windows (no GRUB menu), so i think my ubuntu was in uefi or something so I am planning to fresh install Ubuntu as well..

Ubuntu 18.04.2 Ethernet Bonding

This question is quite unique and different from other guides and documentations out there.

I don’t see any point in bonding two NICs that are connected to the same source because if the source goes down, then bond0 will be rendered useless.

What I’m doing is, I’m trying to bond two NICs with each one having a different source (ISP) so it’s obvious that each one of them will have a different IP address, different gateway etc.

My question is: following almost “every guide” on the internet shows that bond0 needs to be static and i need to set an IP address for it as well as a gateway. How on earth am I supposed to set a static IP address with a static gateway FOR TWO DIFFERENT SOURCEs?

Can someone please explain this?

let’s say NIC1 have: IP_ADDRESS= GATEWAY=


BOND0 should be static based on what? What am I supposed to write in /etc/network/interfaces

Ubuntu doesn’t boot after install, huge swapfile

Was working without issue within Ubuntu 18.04 on a dual-boot machine.

Installed a tex ide via the command line:

sudo apt-get install texmaker 

which appeared to complete successfully. I subsequently clicked on the first gummi link in a response on this SE page, which lanched a new tab, appeared to be resolving, but never fully resolved after a minute or so. I closed it, launched a new tab and searched, never successfully getting to the page.

I wasn’t doing much otherwise, just watching a youtube vid on an adjacent screen and realized my memory was blocked up after getting errors to cd via the command line. I tried a df on my home directory to see what might be causing it and showed most dirs with normal memory allocations, but a huge swapfile, multiple gigs. I tried restarting to clear it, but haven’t been able to get back in.

I’d allocated 40GB for the Ubuntu partition, and don’t save anything substantial there barring a couple GB movie files in the last couple days, without issue, so I wouldn’t expect the recent install of texmaker would have changed things, even at 1GB+. Checking Windows disk manager shows 100% free, not sure whether that’s good or bad (partition 5):

enter image description here

Any thoughts on how to diagnose and fix.

Edit (with additional boot detail): I’m able to boot, select Ubuntu from within the grub dialogue, and ultimately end up on a command-line looking screen with a version of:

/dev/p5 clean 234234/2342234 files, 234234/2324234 blocks 

after which it hangs.

Ubuntu Server 18.04.2 stuck on boot after install

So I just installed Ubuntu Server 18.04.2 on VirtualBox, and during the install reboot, it froze at:

[ OK ] Reached target Cloud-init target 

I gave it 1GB of memory, 1 core of CPU, and 500GB of storage because it is for a home server I am setting up.

Should I wait for it, shut it down the hard way, or do something else?

Thank you in advance.
