comment Can't boot on Windows 8 because of GRUB
Note that if you are asking for help fixing Windows while maintaining Mint, you're on the wrong site, Mint is offtopic on Ask Ubuntu, and you'll need U&L

comment What are CVE security updates and who issues them?
Any time! I noticed you had the two separate questions anyways, so by combining both answers you can still upvote both mine and Henning's answers, and still accept a question that answers both parts of your questions. :)

comment Urdu Text not being rendered properly
Bug reports are offtopic on this site, and instead should be reported on Launchpad so that developers can see, track and fix these issues.

comment GParted hanged for hours on shrinking
Are you moving the partition around on the drive? If you do ctrl+alt+f1, are there any error messages being displayed in that window? (Kernel level error messages sometimes get spit out to TTY1 accessible by ctrl+alt+f1)

comment How can I access my Ubuntu phone over ssh?
@Malee 11.04 is end of life, you can't get help for 11.04 here because of that. Upgrade to 12.04 or newer, or to a supported release, and then we can help you fix it.

comment GParted hanged for hours on shrinking
@Nicolas I don't have Windows 8, but the resize on a 900GB+ partition for Win7 I had took less than a minute, however, moving the partition on the disk to a different location so I could make space for Ubuntu took even longer, took about 4.5 hours to test move and then actually move (1hr for test move, 3.5 hours for the actual move). If you power down the system, it'll break the partitions and you lose everything. And you can't really speed it up either.

comment What are CVE security updates and who issues them?
The CVE and MITRE tags don't exist, hence why you couldn't create them because you don't have the rep. I would suggest you select one of the answers below as "accepted" as otherwise this question will remain open. I created a Community Wiki'd answer that takes both parts of my answer and Henning's answer, if you would like to choose an answer that answers both parts of your question.

comment Host two separate web servers on the same IP
Okay, that's what I thought, the answer provided by George below is not going to work for what you need. The only way is to set up one "master server" that can act as a proxy / middleman server, which would then, based on what's being requested, proxy/relay data between the Internet and a local server. I'm not sure how to do that in Apache, but we've at least narrowed down what's needed for people to answer (i.e. basic network topology and what the setup is from the Internet to your system). Note the domains/subdomains need DNS entries to your public IP address for your router regardless.

comment Host two separate web servers on the same IP
To confirm my interpretation of your question, is your network topology like this, but you want each local network IP to have an individual site on it with its own server? INTERNET <==> Router/Gateway (gets public IP) <==> Local Network IPs

comment Host two separate web servers on the same IP
I'm not sure this answers their question. I'm guessing they have one public IP and multiple local net IPs, if that's the case, DNS won't help them, nor would virtual hosts.

comment Host two separate web servers on the same IP
You would need to have one server listening to all three and reverse proxy to the local network servers. In nginx, which is not apache, we would have this by having one "master server" for nginx, but multiple local servers, the master server would be internet facing, and would listen to all domain names, and then would pass the requests to the server on the local IP (say, 192.168.1.3), then serve the data it gets from 192.168.1.3. It would do this for each site. I'm not sure, but Apache should be able to do something similar to this.

comment Multiple problems with my Dell Inspiron 15R SE 7520
@Aaron The fan control issues aren't helped that much with the ATI / AMD drivers, the issue would still exist. As I said, there are no fixes available for these bugs.

comment Terminal shows more files on desktop than there are actually
The files with the ~ at the end... Those look like temporary files that the desktop is hiding... this isn't a bug, by the way, it's probably a function of the desktop.

comment Installing Windows 7, UBuntu 12.04 and Fedora 18 (19) in triple boot with SWAP and Files space in HDD
Win7 tends to create a System Reserved partition and an OS partition. The exact space you dedicate to each partition is your own choice, there IS no guidelines to how to partition. The problem you're going to run into is that you're going to have space for a primary partition and then need the rest of the drive to be extended, and partitioned such that one part of the extended logical partition is for one of the LInux distros, and the rest is for Swap.

Braiaim, I forgot to put the @ there to ping him, with the @ there he will get pinged. However, I did want to confirm your answer. :)

comment How to install a package from launchpad which doesn't belong to a PPA?
@Fred Braiam has it right, you can't get it anywhere with apt-get. Since the code was not maintained and was an old version of QT3, it was removed, and the only way you're going to get this is by manually downloading and installing an OLD version of the package from Debian. However, note that the package is also removed in Debian as well, so you'll have to do a lot of digging to grab the package.

comment Print multiple lines starting with “D” after multiple greps
@AndreaCorbellini I agree with on this, this question is accepted here if all he wants is this to work on Ubuntu. Having said this, this would also have worked on Stack Overflow because coding/programming. However, in either case, the question is on topic here.
