comment How is it determined which application is to open a file of specific mime-type?
There are other places as well, such as ~/.gnome/share/apps. Different distros and different desktops do this slightly differently. freedesktop.org has a spec-of-sorts. You've found the two places typical for Ubuntu. If they're both empty, I would guess the system has to pick one, and has some deterministic way of doing that. ~/.local/.../mimeapps.list is Ubuntu's standard user-level override, and that's where AliNa's dialog stores its settings.

comment What determines ethernet port name?
You're welcome! A thought: Normal rules map something unique about the resource to a friendly name like eth0, and by persisting ensure consistency. For a NIC then, MAC address-to-eth-something. If the wild card works, great! But I would expect troubles if your machine ever saw two NICs at once.

comment Question about IP Address on VirtualBox for a home server
@Thomas So you did say, curse me for skimming. Still, while VBoxManage and friends are hardly a complete answer, they deserve mention, and the VBox NAT documentation I linked should prove helpful. It did in my case, last time I wanted to make a VBox VM reachable outside its host.

comment Question about IP Address on VirtualBox for a home server
The 10.0.*.* address you mention is a typical VirtualBox private address. That's the IP address of the VM on the host machine. It's not visible outside the host. To set up port forwarding Thomas mentions, use VBox tools VBoxManage, or the Settings dialog in the VBox GUI.

comment xubuntu 10.10 does not work what do I do?
Xubuntu 13.04 i386 requires PAE. Xubuntu 10.10 supports non-PAE, but Xubuntu 10.10 is no longer supported (updates, patches, and fixes are no longer released). Consider installing Xubuntu 12.04. 12.04 supports non-PAE, (it was the last release that did support non-PAE), and will be a supported release until April 2015.
