comment is DD taking too long?
Thanks @JimSalter I was just noticing that my piping: dd if=/dev/sda | pv | dd of=/file was using up 20%, 60%, and 20% CPU respectively. Which to me seems to be a problem.

comment How do I resize an encrypted LVM to install another copy of Ubuntu?
I'm pretty sure you wouldn't need a live cd if you can unmount the partitions. I guess the most common layout is with the root system being encrypted, though?

Here's a rather accurate solution for 13.10 and all past versions: askubuntu.com/a/179107/17065 Note the change in path from '.thumbnails' to '.cache/thumbnails'

comment Trying to install Steam ERROR: You are missing the following 32-bit libraries, and Steam may not run: not
This package isn't available for debian wheezy, or for suacy (13.10). I'm trying to remember when the migration happened for ubuntu... but they migrated from installing 32 bit packages this way.
