comment Why this occurs error: Diskfilter writes are not supported
@EliahKagan I followed the instructions exactly including the permissions change and updating grub. The issue persisted for a while but it appears that a software update eliminated the issue.

@AliJassim It would appear not. I would suggest you follow the links I provided for learning how to install the relevant driver for the card. You may also need to do some Google searching to aid in your getting the proper driver.

@AliJassim Have you tried using the card? Install the card in the computer and run lspci in a Terminal session; if it properly displays the card information, chances are good that driver support is already in the kernel and no additional driver is required.

What's the format of the NAS partition? Are we to assume NTFS?

comment update obstacle
Check your Software Sources listing on the Dell: I bet the USB stick was added as a source repository and when it is trying to load available updates it wants that USB stick plugged in. Remove/uncheck it as a source and the problem should go away. Or edit it out of /etc/apt/sources.list

comment Very large log files, what should I do?
Is there anything in those log files that lends a clue as to why they are so large? Delete and reboot, then monitor them to see if they grow in some exponential fashion.

comment Ubuntu 14.04 15 minutes boot time
I would still think that it's a problem with the driver rt2870.bin that's loading and then looking to connect to your network.

Sadly I have been affected by this bug and none of the fixes in the bug report or here by editing the 00_header file have worked. I won't disable the quick_boot to make it go away.

Can't you boot into safe mode by holding the Shift key down just after the BIOS splash?

comment Getting SFTP to update Wordpress
Sounds like it might be a permissions issue. Symlinking may not have sufficient rights to allow the copy. That said, WP has update/upgrade functions in its Admin CP - why not use those?

comment Unable to access Windows share from an Ubuntu Desktop
Also, logins on AD can have some funny syntax you need to bear in mind. Sometimes the domain\username has to be used and the slash direction is important.

comment Unable to configure virtualhosts in ubuntu+apache+webmin
Do you have a line in your /etc/apache2/apache2.conf file that runs the include /etc/apache2/sites-enabled command? The include command is path-specific for Webmin to add virtual hosts and for Apache to know to enable and read them.

comment Where did /etc/init.d/dovecot go in 14.04?
Is Dovecot installed? If it were, service status dovecot should return a stopped/waiting status.
