comment Building Ubuntu server from source on very old hardware?
I recommend against compiling any kind of linux system on the old hardware - it will simply take too long. Far better to cross-compile for that architecture on a newer, more powerful machine and go from there.

comment What is the difference between 'su -' , 'sudo bash' and 'sudo sh'?
It's worth noting that you can log in as the super user by running sudo su - without a root password. Because sudo runs the su - command with root permissions, you will only be prompted for the user's password. This has the advantage of setting up the root user's environment, which may not be done by simply running a shell with sudo.

comment Why am I asked for the “password for root” when upgrading packages?
Hamish, what is the result of typing gconftool -g /apps/gksu/sudo-mode into a terminal as the user you are trying to debug?

comment Creating a terminal command to extract tarballs
Hi, welcome to AskUbuntu.com. I like your answer better than the accepted one because I feel it is a little more elegant to use an alias for this than starting a separate shell, but could you rewrite your answer to make it a bit clearer for the asker?
