Also bind the run directory, otherwise you will probably be getting unable to resolve hostname errors: sudo mount --bind /run /chrootlocation/run

It's libtiff4 (image file format library). A ton of software depend on it. I can not simply remove and install it.

comment disable password prompt on user switch?
This doesn't work for me. Still password prompt. However, if you choose "Switch User Account" instead, and then select another user from the startup screen, then you gen logged in without password prompt. What is my problem?

comment Ubuntu server unstable performance
Setting swappiness to 20 didn't help. I decided to upgrade to a better server with 384MB of memory. What swappiness do you think I should set there?

comment How to secure ubuntu server from bruteforce ssh attacks?
@pepoluan, I thought that if you turn 'PasswordAuthentication to 'no', server won't even listen to port 22. Is this correct?

comment How to secure ubuntu server from bruteforce ssh attacks?
Fair enough. To be on the safe side, I've setup my 2 servers to have access via RSA to one another. So if I loose my private key I will be able to ssh from another server.

If you use ssh keys and turn off password authentication via ssh, do I really need 1,2,3 ?

comment How to secure ubuntu server from bruteforce ssh attacks?
But, in this case there is no such thing as a server's public key, hence nothing to publish. So, loosing my private key = loosing access to server. Correct?

comment How to secure ubuntu server from bruteforce ssh attacks?
As far as I understood from the manual, you generate and store your private key on your machine and upload your public key to a server's authorized_keys file. Is this correct? Or the other way around?
