comment Brightness not working after installing NVIDIA driver
Just a followup, I tried all the documented solutions, and nothing ever worked, including using the most recent Nvida driver. However, when I purged the Nvidia driver and used the open source Nouveau driver, screen dimming immediately started working.

This doesn't seem to work if the sd*# is a software RAID array.

comment Failed to get canonical path of /cow
Your solution is confusing. Do you need to run the first part and the second from within the chroot of the first? Or do you throw away everything you did in the first part and only run the second part? Why do you mount both /dev/sda and /dev/sda1?

comment How to send mail from the command line?
I wish it were really this simple, but unless you're someone very special, this isn't going to work. 99.9999% of ISPs will ignore mail from private postfix servers, because 9.99999 times out of 10 they're spammers.

comment How do I set the grub timeout and the grub default boot entry?
Please don't recommend anyone change the default grub option by setting an arbitrary index. That's terribly unintuitive and likely to result in disaster. The user may enter the wrong one, or it may change during an upgrade, resulting in unexpected behaviour.
