Follow up: You can prevent future upgrades of the downgraded packages (there is a reason you did the downgrade) by running this command: sudo echo "<packagename> hold" | sudo dpkg --set-selections.

comment Open Ubuntu Server in Windows Explorer
If your hydrogen share already works you only need to duplicate the block and change the name and the path.

comment Open Ubuntu Server in Windows Explorer
You should see your server at least twice, the infrastructure icon that opens a Web page is from something that uses upnp, maybe a media server. You should see a second icon in Explorer from the samba service.

comment Ubuntu install from ISO always kicks back to “Ubuntu installer main menu”
Difference is, I have network connectivity. I have a couple of identical machines, I installed it on one without problems, on the next two I run into this problem.

I'd check WHAT is using the files right now before radically removing lock files.

I can't really imagine a missing passwd file resulting in the symptoms you describe. I'd look into alternative causes as well.

Did you see this line in the blog post? You want to proxy to load my default so edit ~/.irssi/startup and addthe line "/LOAD PROXY".

comment Recently freed hard drive space is not being recognized
Since I'll be off for a while soon a last hint I can think of: Filesize is not the only thing filling up a hard disk. If you produce enough 0 byte files you can fill it too, because every file uses an inode and a block. Additionally, blocks are reserverd for system use. You can check the usage of both with the commands mentioned above.

Depending on the actual size of the partition these 3.7 GB might not matter much

comment Ubuntu Server auto start irssi in proxy mode
If he is already using it in proxy mode he most probably already did all this. The question is how to have it started automatically.
