comment I have a 24 gig RAM pc with intel Xeon and still get 3 fps on minecraft
Not sure about that. Older P4 based Xeons might be able to use 24GB and still have very slow on-board graphics. But that is reaching on my part. I think you are right for 99% of the cases. @OP: First of all. Please post a bit more information than just " I tried allocating 20 gigs to minecraft but it only uses about 1" Secondly, consider what you just wrote. Either it is limited because it want more RAM and you failed to successfully assign it, or it has much more RAM than it can use and something else limits the speed.

comment C compiler cannot create excecutables
I asked because similar questions like this onen gave the same error when GCC was not the actual compuer or when there are some linker problems (roadmr already covered that part).

comment Adjust new swap memory
If does not simply depend on you main memory. How much RAM do you typically use? (Get that as real RAM). How much do you rarely use on top of that? (e.g. usually 4-5 GB, but once per month 7GiB when recompiling QT. In that case get 2+ GiB-ish swap (8 is 6+2, and round up for some spare). In almost all cases this means swap never needs to be larger than 2-3 GiB.

comment Adjust new swap memory
no longer. Way back when we used SWAP and program were mapped to the swap and all RAM was cache we used to have a rule of SWAP being main RAM x2 or bigger. This is no longer true. Today all systems page. It might still be called a swap file and fstabn will still show 'swap' as filesystem, but the methods behind it have changed as have the sizes.

comment Adjust new swap memory
10GiB of paging? What are you trying to do? If you reguarly use more then 1GB of swap then consider buying more memory, not increasing swap. (except if ram is maxed out and you do not mind waiting a few extra weeks for a program to run).

revised How much swap space should I configure?
Markup changes. Changed 'use' swapspace to 'configure' swap-space since you do nto actually want to use it. (or as little as possible).

comment Recover Orphaned RAID 0 from Silicon Image controller with Linux Software RAID?
The [sil 3112]](ftp.albatron.com.tw/product/it/mb/PDFzip/Manual/RAID/…) seems to be a HW RAID card? Why not move it (and the drives) to new motherboard? Alternatively, recover from your backups? (That assumes you have those, but no-one stores important data on RAID 0. Also see http://serverfault.com/questions/339128/what-are-the-different-widely-used-raid‌​-levels-and-when-should-i-consider-them.

comment How to create an audio ISO file from WAV files?
It is clear what you want to ask, but for the record: "Audio iso" files do not use the iso format.

comment How can I recursively delete all files of a specific extension in the current directory?
True. Without the -r it prints a nice warning. (at least on FreeBSD with bash where I tested it). And maybe we should mention rm's -i flag since it will answer the key problem of the OP: "Not feeling safe with rm".

comment Problem with grep command
grep --no-filename A test? seems to work fine. Just loose the ^ (which means at the beginning of a line) and optionally add a -h or --no-filename to supporess printing the filenames in front of the pattern). Note that test? will match textx, testy and testz, but that * is also quite valid here.

comment How can I recursively delete all files of a specific extension in the current directory?
You might want to add a '-print` to the second example. If you do not specify this then printing is the default, but explicitly stating it is a good idea in case you ever move to an OS which has different defaults. (Same with the . which was mentioned. If you leave that out then some find binaries will assume . and some will complain about invalid syntax.

With default settings rm *.bak will only delete all files ending with .bak in the current directory. TO also do things in subdirectories you either needed to fiddle with globs, use the -r option or use the find example.

comment Error message: “This kernel requires an x86-64 cpu but only detected an i686 cpu”
To use 64 bit computing you need three things: 1) A CPU capable of 64 bit mode. (Check here). 2) A BIOS allowing you to enable that. 3) an OS using it. -- It sounds as if you have 3, 2 is unsure and 1 can only be answered after you add your CPU model to the post. Most (if not all) modern AMD CPU's do support amd64 though.

comment Log commands executed in ubuntu
Are you looking for your commands or for commands from all users? Or even only for your commands for a specific session (e.g. see script)? If you are looking on spying on other users, then please realise that I used the term spying.
