comment Why do I have 2 IP addresses for the same computer?
Doug: Same MAC means that the IPs point to the same NIC.

comment Why do I have 2 IP addresses for the same computer?
How did you set up an static IP? If you did so the first time you booted the Ubuntu installer then I have no idea how this happened. However if you first booted using DHCP (and thus got an IP in the router list) and later changed to a static IP then the router might be remembering both the new state and the old state.

revised Dell Poweredge R410, ubuntu(14.04) running dead slow
Changed dell poweredge 'CPU' to 'Dell powerEdge R410'. The CPU (which is a single chip) is an E5503.

comment Dell Poweredge R410, ubuntu(14.04) running dead slow
If the system is slow then it is waiting on something. Either on the CPU (unlikely, a E5503 is modern enough), disk, network, ... To answer what it is waiting on you need to post more information.

comment make ntfs hdd only visible in Ubuntu
Hiding it will be quite hard since you seem to want a 'real NTFS' filesystem on the drive. However depending on your goal you could just not assign a drive letter under windows.

comment 'tail' command not getting only the new lines
Does nano insert (append) new text to the existing file? Or does it empty (truncate) the file and then write the new (longer) version? Which is a new write which would trigger tail.

comment Is it wise to run computing virtual machines on KVM?
Using a VM is slower, but not much. Only you can decide if the low (1%-ish?) slow down is worth the extra ease of recovery when using a VM. That 1% is a guess and depends a lot on which hardware you use (e.g. CPUs with or without AMD-Vi or Intel VT-x/VT-d. Same for passthough IO devices or disk access via the host OS).

comment Why does tar complaint that it cannot find the file while extracting the archive?
You change users (sudo) to a different person. That different person needs read rights on the tarball. Does that person (uid 0) have those rights? (The usual answer is: Heck yes, toor/root/admin has those rights, but but SE linux that is no longer always true.
