comment Why does Ubuntu trigger thermal protection shutdowns on my Dell laptop?
Sagar, this is a common occurrence in all laptops, and has to do with a flaw in systems with powerful graphics cards, which happens in Dells. There is no solution, except maybe a cooling pad, or not having the laptop flush against the work surface (so the fans can still operate). As well, this is also a limitation in the temperature regulation within the OS (which Windows and Dell drivers for Windows take into account)

@andol they won't play nice. You can't have two instances of sshd running simultaneously, at least not safely.

comment How to package a single text file into a .deb?
I'd advise not messing with the postinst scripts, but have your modifications take place in the default conf, change what it says to match what you need, or manually replace the collectd.conf, or provide it separately without including it in any package. I'd need to see what change(s) you were doing first, though, before I can possibly help out, so a copy of what exactly you're trying to put into the file can be provided to my email address (send me an email via launchpad: launchpad.net/~trekcaptainusa-tw or at trekcaptainusa-tw AT ubuntu DOT com)

I can also explain how to patch the package's default configs, and possibly even do taht for you within one of my PPAs.
