@JorgeB. Does it give younany meaningful error at all? It should give more than 'bad file descriptor' with hexchat...

comment Why latest version of packages in Synaptic is different from developers website?
This is already answered in the duplicate question. This gives the general answer but doesn't necessarily detail the why.

comment Why latest version of packages in Synaptic is different from developers website?
Also consider you are asking two questions - you should split them. To answer the second one: you can only update to the latest versions if you compile the software yourself or find a PPA or a repository that has the newer versions (short of upgrading to the latest release of Ubuntu or the latest Dev release which I do NOT recommend).

comment Problem while running BASE (Basic Analysis and Security Engine) IDS on localhost
This points to dependency problems and such either in PHP or elsewhere. Unfortunately you might have to reach out to the people who make BASE and get assistance from them, it's likely a case of some function not existing where it needs to or such, or something not installed into Snort or Barnyard.

put the complete output into your question as an edit, NOT as a comment.

comment Can't expand Ubuntu VM's hard drive space
Look at sudo fdisk -l and see what the actual partition scheme is and whether you have any free space at all.

comment How should I deal with bugs that are for unsupported versions of Ubuntu?
Followup: No currently EOL releases have any open bugs at this time.

@Seth that's probably the case, but as I said two comments ago, the parent wiki pages for Importance and Statuses is a good bet for what statuses to set.

comment Can I pause YouTube in Chrome from the command line?
@Tim I do not know - that may be a different question you would post.

comment How should I deal with bugs that are for unsupported versions of Ubuntu?
@labyrinth ONLY look at EOL releases that have Open Bugs (see my comment on my answer). There are no bugs that are Open that are against Hardy. (Invalid, Won't Fix, Fix Released, Expired are all considered "closed" and should NOT be touched.) Only look at release series' targeted bugs which have "Open" statuses (New, Incomplete, Triaged, Fix Committed).

comment Can I pause YouTube in Chrome from the command line?
@Tim it'd still be a Chrome thing - if you want to control it in Chrome then Chrome and the Flash plugin would need to have an API that listens locally, and running a youtube and chrome window shows no kind of API starting up. You'd probably need an offline YouTube client with an API to do that, but it probably won't have Chrome intergration...

comment Can I pause YouTube in Chrome from the command line?
This would require some kind of API call to the HTML5 or Flash video player through Chrome - I don't think there's any kind of setup that exists that can do that.

comment How should I deal with bugs that are for unsupported versions of Ubuntu?
@labyrinth there's no open Hardy bugs. Your triaging Hardy bugs is irrelevant then at this point - move your triage focus to a release that recently went EOL or is EOL and have open bugs. (The URL pattern is https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/CODENAME/ to find open bugs, where CODENAME is the release codename, such as hardy or lucid)
