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.

comment Can't curently log in as user in ubuntu 12.04
The likelihood of corruption during install is extraordinarily low. What're you basing that on? It's more likely their hardware is not capable of handling the 3d unity.

comment How do I create one user without key authentication?
I think what you're running into is the issue of using key based auth only. The only way I know of to allow non-key-auth is with passwords, or Kerberos stuff (which can be tricky to set up). By enabling key-only auth, you've effectively prevented non-key-auth from working.

comment Hibernate Option not available in Ubuntu 12.04
@HussainNagri in this post, there is an instruction to test whether hibernation works on your machine before enabling it. That test is sudo pm-hibernate. Did you run that test to see if hibernate works on your system or not?

comment How do I install the latest stable version of LibreOffice?
If/when they get synced to the development release. Ubuntu tries not to update the main repositories often, not without stringent testing to make sure things break. Exceptions are sometimes made, in cases of critical bugs (regressions), or security bugfixes (which end up in $release-security, i.e. precise-security).

comment Upgrading From 11.04 (32bit) to 12.04 (64bit)
No, you first clean-install each service/program you need (sudo apt-get install apache2 mysql-server php5 ... depending on what you need, of course), then you copy your configs over. Then you copy your files over. Then you restart each service accordingly, and hope that it doesnt blow up. If it blows up, there's something wrong. but that'll be a different question.

"clean install" means a brand new installation from the installation media, a 12.04 DVD or USB stick with the installation software image on it.

comment Upgrading From 11.04 (32bit) to 12.04 (64bit)
You would not just "restart", you'd need to save your data onto some type of external media, and then clean install 12.04 64bit, since you cannot go directly from 32bit to 64bit. Then you would need to manually go through and restore your data from the external storage. As well, you'd need to reinstall all the packages again, some of which have had name changes since 11.04.

Answers for Fedora or CentOS should not necessarily be used just for Ubuntu or Debian. They do have separate configurations.
