comment Fully automatic updates in Kubuntu
@BlaXpirit: I haven't had time, but a Google search with 'apt-get update script automate' just now turned up some pages that may be useful. This page was the first result. Take a look at the section entitled "Advanced Alternative: Automatic Weekly Package Updates Using Cron And Apt-Get". That may be of use to you.

comment How do we know the version of a tool from command line on a remote server?
You can also often read the man. It'll appear near the bottom. E.g. man rsync --> "This man page is current for version 2.6.9 of rsync."

I can't tell from those logs, so excuse me if I'm missing something, but have you ensured that the sound chipset is enabled in BIOS?

comment How to connect via aftp?
+1 - Installing netatalk is the way to go here. As an added bonus, you can enter into a terminal $ sudo apt-get install avahi-daemon. "Avahi allows programs to publish and discover services and hosts running on a local network with no specific configuration." This is known as Bonjour in OS X. avahi-daemon allows your AFP shares to show up as Bonjour shares in OS X.

comment How do I erase/format a harddisk from a live CD?
Damn. OK, another option that I like is to use a GParted Live CD. If this thing can't delete a partition table then the next step is to get something like, for example, the Western Digital Diagnostics disk to write 0's to the whole disk. NB: This can also be achieved using the dd command in a terminal.

comment How do I erase/format a harddisk from a live CD?
If they're NTFS or FAT32 partitions, then yes, Vista can natively use them. If they're anything else you'd need a workaround. The problem with having eight partitions though is that Windows will accept only four primary partitions. I don't know how interchangeable logical partitions are with extended partitions. It's probably best to back-up the data and reformat to Windows native file systems.

I'll take a look for a good script today if I get the time. There are plenty out there.

comment Fully automatic updates in Kubuntu
There are some scripts floating around on the net. I'd suggest googling 'apt-get update', 'script', 'automate' and see what that gives you.
