comment How does the command “linux-boot-prober” work?
it will read /etc/fstab on the target partition to know whether /boot is mounted from another location, too. That may raise issues when trying to update a system with multiple OS all mounting the same /boot.

curiously, I ended up with :i386 variant of the packages to be installed on my amd64 system with this command.

comment How to fix slow wireless on machines with Intel wireless cards?
For the record, that disables the "n" flavour of the 802.11 (aka WiFi) protocol, which is buggy on intel chipsets. Check the output of "iwconfig wlan0" before and after issueing those commands. It should start with "IEEE 802.11abgn" before and just "802.11abg" after.

comment How to fix slow wireless on machines with Intel wireless cards?
"For 12.04, change options iwlagn 11n_disable=1 to options iwlwifi 11n_disable=1" - ok, but should we still edit iwlagn.conf or iwlwifi.conf ?

any idea how "number of kernels to keep" can be defined on a machine that has no GUI installed (server)?

comment How do I change the GRUB boot order?
and I wouldn't recommend to gksu nautilus either. Too easy to drop a bomb in your system from there.

comment Why do I get “init: failed to create pty…” errors on boot?
the bug is now fixed. sudo aptitude upgrade upstart should apply the fix on your system.

comment How can one make firefox ignore my GTK theme entirely?
which you need to do after quitting your current firefox instance, of course, or the "firefox" script will just instruct the current process to open a new window (and the GTK2_RC_FILES setting is just ignored altogether).
