comment Why does dpkg give me a “package was interrupted” error?
sudo dpkg --configure -a should work without needing to purge the lock, you don't need to rm the lock (you should never do that anyways)

You should not change the username for root. This will break things.

comment How can I install spark instant messenger client 2.6.3?
sun-java6 does not exist in the repositories since 11.10. This is because Oracle's licensing on Java is incompatible with Ubuntu's packaging license requirements. Refer to help.ubuntu.com/community/Java for information about how to install Oracle java

comment Deleting Unused Swaps Partions
Mostly correct. But you can swapon and swapoff via gparted, with right-click and "Swap off" and "Swap On" and the likes. Note though I'd strongly recommend doing this from a LiveCD or LiveUSB, but that's just me (I don't like modifying my partitions on disk while that disk is booted to)

comment How portable are Binaries compiled in Ubuntu?
@psusi having said this, do you believe that its more feasible (and easier) to compile a program on each system that will use it, or to distribute Linux binaries that may use newer features than the libraries available on each system using the program?

@poolie not every program is portable. More often than not, programs aren't written in a manner that is portable.
