comment Ubuntu system Does not see ram
Might it be that your SODIMMS might be laid out as 2x1GiB and 2x2GiB (rank 2 memory, or effectively two memory setups per DIMM). As for the 2.7... As Pilot already write: Check the BIOS first. If that sees the full 6GiB then check if you are running a normal 64 bit setup and not some 32bit-without-PEA.

comment Ethernet drivers for Dell R210 II - Ubuntu Server 14.04
According to dell.com/uk/business/p/poweredge-r210-2/pd the NICs are a dual port Broadcom BCM 5716. That uses the bce driver. (See manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/saucy/man4/bce.4freebsd.html). Is that driver loaded?

comment 15.04 Only Boots in Recovery Mode After CPU Change
I am not sure how to interpreted the error. It starts with hda_snd (which I think is the intel chipset sound), but i915 also does things with build-n graphics. Which might explain the problems with starting a graphical shell (such as gnome).

How is the USB pendrive mounted? Read-only with a union filesystem?

Aye. And a bit of explanation. E.g. why use ` MASQUERADE` when you seem to have regular puplic IPs?

comment Share internet over ethernet
Step 1: Configure eth1 with the new network range. Step 2: Confitgure other computers on this network and test/ping. They will use NIC2 on computer 1 (185.185.185.1) as gateway. Step 3) Now you need to forward packets between the two interfaces. Your computer does this based on its routing table. If that does not for check if ipforwarding is enabled. (sysctl net.ipv4.ip_forward should return 1. If it returns 0 then use echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward or sysctl -w net.ipv4.ip_forward=1).

comment Error formatting disk
Note that MBR/GPT is like an index in a book. First deelete all (including the old style index), then create a new style (GPT) index. After that you can create entries and format those.

That is posible. And not hard to do. So what did you already try and where did you run into problems?

+1 for a solution which does not need extra software.

Are you trying to sniff on your own communication (e.g. in order to debug something)? If you are just set up webscarab or any similar proxy,.

comment installing valgrind ./configure fails to produce makefile
Which kernel does your VM use atm? And why Valgrind 3.6.1? ( Valgrind 3.10.1 is current).

comment installing valgrind ./configure fails to produce makefile
You can edit the configure script to skip that step, but there is probably a very good reason why it claims to only work on those kernels. (Read: Then it will probably fail further down the road).

comment Cannot connect to some wireless networks
Why do you suspect the driver when it works at home and with some other networks. (Assuming it only fails on some of the other/not-home networks). Why do you not get any DNS replies? Are the DNS servers on your laptop configured via DHCP? Does the DHCP server reply with any DNS server IPs (that part is OPTIONAL for DNS). Etc etc. Please add more information you your post.
