[ubuntu] network-manager 17.1 updateview story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I believe there may be an issue with the recent network-manager0.9.8.8 17.1 security update. My two LinuxMint 17.1 laptops both took the update this weekend and now cannot connect to wifi or Ethernet. However, my Mint Debian laptop has had no such update and is still ok, likewise my other laptop which has not yet been updated. Has anyone else seen this issue with the updated package? (Hardware)

Is there a way to configure lxd containers with cloud config at provision time?view story

http://askubuntu.com – Specifically, with the CLI tools- not openstack. I'm looking at what a local dev setup with lxd might look like but am coming up empty handed when it comes to configuring new containers.

After each reboot, speakers have volume 0view story

http://unix.stackexchange.com – For some reason my audio volume keeps being reduced to zero when I reboot. I am able to fix this temporarily like so: rm ~/.config/pulse/* If I reboot, the volume functions normally. Rebooting again resets it to zero again.

Reuse front headphone jack as microphone jackview story

http://askubuntu.com – I have a Realtek ALC 882 internal audio device in my computer, which supplies three front jacks.
