comment This computer will soon stop receiving Google Chrome updates because this Linux system will no longer be supported
You may also want to consider the Vivaldi browser. It's relatively new and under active development. It supports some chrome add-ons. Some of the folks are from the Opera browser community. vivaldi.com/download

+1 in general, but also specifically for classifying this as an X/Y problem.

comment How to use manual partitioning during installation?
Although many people go this route (and it works fine), I prefer to just boot up a standalone gparted distro and do all my partitioning first. I especially like that it "does" everything and shows you how it will turn out before it actually writes anything to the disk. That way, it's easy to say "oops" and just start over if you make a mistake or change your mind about any of the details.

comment Where should I keep my personal files while keeping the pathname short?
Right. Generally, you would add the alias definition in .bashrc in your home directory, or , if you have it setup to be read, you can add it to .bash_aliases in your home directory. An alias only works at the start of a command line, but a function will work anywhere. They're just a bit more tricky to use for something like this.

comment Ubuntu source package dependency tree
I don't know makemuch at all, but I was under the impression that you could define make rules to do just about anything - not just run a compile. I'll bet rules could be configured to build a deb or just about anything else - if one knew how.

comment Ubuntu source package dependency tree
I don't do stuff at this level on Linux, but I think that was what make was invented for. A makefile includes rules which determine what needs to be recompiled/rebuilt based on what has changed.

comment grep command and [ ]
ps -f | grep foo | grtep -v grep should be ps -f | grep foo | grep -v grep. I only found 3 characters to change in the entire answer and it won't allow an edit with less than 6 characters.

comment How would you count every occurrence of a term in all files in the current directory?
This appears to be the only answer which counts all occurrences of the term as the OP requested. AFAIK, all the solutions using grep will count all the lines on which the term occurs, so a line which includes the term three times will only count as one occurrence.

comment What does installing/removing an updated kernel version do which takes so long?
Thanks for the detailed answer. I'm not dealing with any VMs at the moment. In my simple case, I wouldn't expect any services to restart until after/as part of the reboot and I wasn't counting that time. I had not run into System.map. I looked it up at en.wikipedia.org/wiki/System.map. Mine is over 70,000 lines long.
