comment Can I split the upgrade downloads into multiple parts?
That's not how I"m interpreting the question. He hasnt asked how to segregate the downloads. he's asked how to upgrade the version in parts.

comment How is the /tmp directory cleaned up?
@MaximVeksler that's not your call. The OP can decide which answer they want to select. And given the age of this thread, its likely that will not change, there is a lockout unless answers get edited.

comment Why does Disk Utility show 8 bad sectors on a 2-months old harddrive?
Bad sectors are unusable. What the system does is say "Don't use this, put stuff here instead" in the free space that's kept for that purpose. Those bad sectors are then identified and generally avoided on the drive. Bad sectors crop up during a drive's lifetime, and is typically a sign of overuse. 8 bad sectors is nothing. Try 50000 on a drive I had that was near death.

comment How do I fix my AMD/ATI GPU drivers (temp is 83 C at idle)?
For the record, GPUs tend to run hotter in laptops, 75 - 85 isnt a horrible temp for a GPU on a laptop, especially with something that powerful.

comment Sudden black screen while extracting rar (12.04)
There's a million reasons the screen could die. Faulty connector at the motherboard, broken wires internally, etc. I had this issue with my own monitor, once, Dell replaced it for free (granted I had the total care plan).

comment How to backport a bug fix?
This bug has now been assigned to someone for Precise. Apparently, there's an SRU freeze as well, so... not sure when this'll get in there. Probably after the end of august

comment How to backport a bug fix?
typically, bugfixes don't get backported even for critical bugs, unless its nominated for Precise and someone SRU's it. It's currently "Triaged" against Precise, but if someone were fixing it, they'd be assigned. Someone'd have to take the assignment, apply the patch, generate the debdiffs, upload those debdiffs, and then get the package uploaded into precise-proposed.
