There is an online fix given in the comments, however it works only with older and newer versions of Ubuntu than I'm running: Ubuntu 14.04 lts. Alkis did a fix (thanks!) which for some reason gets overwritten upon reboot. Can someone point me to a page explaining what to do or a file which I can use to replace the overwritten fixed-file each time I reboot?
This is my version info: uname -a Linux myserver 3.19.0-26-generic #28~14.04.1-Ubuntu SMP Wed Aug 12 14:12:35 UTC 2015 i686 i686 i686 GNU/Linux
