I am a curious person who always likes to learn more. I like solving puzzles and I like working with computers. Which means I enjoy some of the more complex questions on this site, as well as the answers which go into details and explain all facets.

comment How to add DNS suffix in Ubuntu 12.04?
Right now I got no Ubuntu install to test this with, but the normal way to do this is by adding a new line with search mydomain.tld in /etc/resolv.conf

comment Exclude from * in command line
If you want to keep only one or two files then the simplest and easiest way would be to move those files to another location, wipe all remaining files and move the ones you kept back. If you want to keep a lot more files I would use find with the --delete option (no need to execute rm for each file. That is needless overhead).

comment I have 4 GB ram.. what should be the perfect swap partition size?
4 gigabit RAM (or 0.5 GB RAM) is rather low. Did you mean byte (capital B) rather than b (bit) ?

comment Required space for dual boot
Yes. Windows 7 will happily live on 30GB (OS plus normal apps). Ubuntu should easily fit in the remaining 98GB.

comment shutdown 0 always remains in single-user mode
I should check the Ubuntu defaults, but normally shutdown means 'shutdown to single use mode`. If you want to reboot, halt or power off you will need to specify that. (e.g. shutdown -r now).

comment How to repair deleted modules?
Which kernel are you running? (Use uname -a to check). Then cd into that kernels folder. Ofc. this assumes a logic naming scheme so you know which kernel to change to. Also, if you only have the headers then you lack the source. In that case you can download the full kernel ( ftp to ftp.kernel.org and cd to pub/linux/kernel ). Or use the package tools to deinstall and reinstall a kernel. That would no longer match 'repairing modules' or 'reinstalling modules', but it would solve your problems.

comment How to repair deleted modules?
As to fixing it, that might be as simple as 'cd /usr/src/linux && make modules && make modules_install`, assuming you have the kernel source installed in /usr/src/linux.

A bit of whitespace would make this a lot easier to read. (not sure why I can not edit that ATM though).

comment Unable to execute shell scripts from `~/bin`
Without the backticks the helpful parser makes the http:// part invisible. Not sure how to work around that without typing it twice. :(

I would love to answer that and rake in the extra rep, but this post already answers that quite well: :-) askubuntu.com/questions/157154/…
