comment Can I set dual external monitors on Thinkpad X220?
Thanks a lot for update. Is ultrabase necessary for such setup? Would it be possible to use vga and display ports from laptop itself?

Thanks for that! Do you use one DisplyPort and one VGA cable? Or are there other options with ultrabase?

Thanks for feedback. Do you use ultrabase? Is it possible to connect two screens using ports of your laptop only?

comment MySQL fails to start (After upgrade, installation, etc..)
Excellent. Worked as a charm. All working again. One note: I did not have to remove this directory sudo rm /etc/mysql/ -R - it was simply not present in my case. Anyway - luckily it was just a local install to test Wordpress.. Wonder what would happen on a real server o_O

Thanks for prompt feedback. my.cnf file is in /etc/mysql/my.cnf in my case. Is that correct location? dmesg gives me pleeenty of output which is beyond my comprehension :/ I indeed had 5.1 installed - does that have any consequences?

comment Can I set dual external monitors on Thinkpad X220?
Thanks for information. I think I could live without hibernation. Just one question - for the setup without ultrabase - how do you connect? One DisplayPort cable & one VGA? Or some adapter?
