comment Denial of permission even in root mode
What is the output of ls -l on that file? Do the permissions end in an asterix or a dot ? (ACL!)

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).

Iit says something like "an error has occurred". What is the exact error?

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

comment Share internet over ethernet
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.

comment Sniffing HTTP responses from server
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).

Which shell is root using by default? (e.g. use chsh or cat /etc/passwd).

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.

comment Cron process sends email, where are these sent emails?
No, it does not. It only sends them. It does not archive them or keep local copies.

comment Cron process sends email, where are these sent emails?
Are you asking where the mail gets sent to (as in to root@host.tld, or the users mail when the crontab was not for root), or if the cronjob keeps a mail folder with things like 'sent mail', 'inbox', 'spam' etc etc? In the last case the answer is Nope. It just sends the mail and does not keep any logs.

comment find is using a LOT of resources - how do I find out why?
Does it always slow down around the same time? Do you run updatedb (locate) via cron? Are there any disk errors?

comment Can't detect hard drive
1) What do you mean with "formatted with a linux partition"? Did they make a single partition on the disk (similar to dangerously dedicated) or is the disk installed in the normal way. E.g. a MBR or EUFI, and then partition(s) ? 2) You write that the BIOS detects it. That means the hardware is probably OK. But which hardware? A SATA port on the motherboard? On a plug-in card? It is on a HBA? 3) Can you please add the output from dmesg during the boot. (To check if or which disk controllers and disks are detected).

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.
