@blackcornail we only support Ubuntu and official derivatives. Debian should go to unix.stackexchange.com

comment Why does Ubuntu create the file /var/log/boot?
This is about 10.04.4 and 11.10. Back then things where different.

comment Where is the content of my generated resolv.conf coming from?
From dhcp and networkmanager. See for instance: askubuntu.com/questions/130452/… There is a 3rd one but I can't remember. Probably /etc/network/interfaces?

comment Why does Ubuntu create the file /var/log/boot?
Please do not kick old unsupported releases with an answer that is already provided. Besides that: is IS installed by default, it is not enabled by default.

comment How can I set up password-less SSH login?
Correct. But you generate -once- and copy those over to the other machine. See this for instance: cyberciti.biz/tips/… Oh and @RamanaReddy I would suggest it might be worth making a new topic asking about how to do this for multiple machine referring to this one ;)

comment Permanent permission for /dev/ttyS0
The /dev/ system is recreated on every boot so chmod is useless. Both askubuntu.com/a/373269/15811 and askubuntu.com/a/210230/15811 are correct methods: you add yourself to the dialout group. "but even after adding the user to dialout group the problem stands " Please provide proof you user has the dialout group (see the 2nd link).

comment Does anyone know if steps are being taken to improve QA on new releases of LibreOffice?
"There seem to be more and more serious bugs appearing in this suite. " Yeah well that is mostly because a group of people decided to actually improve office (before that it was owned by Sun and they did not really care). And with changes come bugs. Just keep reporting them and they will get fixed.

comment How to create a live CD?
Do it manually please. You will learn a lot about computers and linux, it is fun and not that difficult. Have a look here for a starter: askubuntu.com/questions/48535/…

no this is ONE question with THREE topics. You need to create 3 topics on AU each with 1 question and enough information.

Where is the big fat warning that this is bad?

comment Want to enable root direct login to telnet/ssh/ftp
"I am pretty aware of security risks" I seriously doubt that or you would not have asked this. People that are aware of the risk know how to do this and know why not to do this.

comment Copy all files from my old hard drive to my new one
General idea: create a 500Gb partition on the 1Tb. Hang the 500Gb into your system together with the 1Tb and use dd to copy it over (it probably is what clonezilla will do so the answer probably is yes to your question ;-) )

comment Copy all files from my old hard drive to my new one
It will take a long time with any tool you use ;-) Is it a desktop? If so ... dd might be the quickest.

Please do not crosspost serverfault.com/questions/688356/… I'd advice to remove the one on SF.

comment Icons are not smooth
An image of these icons might help (upload it to a images hosting and edit into the question the url to the image; someone with enough rep will edit the image into the question)

comment Just installled unbuntu, 3 problems. Video Card-Wine/FF14- 2nd monitor
You need to split these into 3 questions and make sure the 3rd has enough info to be a question. In general asking multiple questions in 1 scares people of since not all can answer all 3 so do not answer 1/3th.

"You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these:" it says... and when you did that ...?
