I'm currently a university student with a B.E.Sc in Electrical Engineering, working towards a M.E.Sc in Robotics & Control Systems. Currently, I'm focusing my studies on computer architectures and embedded systems, with my thesis topic involving the implementation of high-speed image processing algorithms in hardware. For now, I'm just enjoying school, building random little projects, working on my website, and contributing to Stack Exchange!

comment How do I fix my locale issue?
This is the best answer. It's not that my locales were setup incorrectly, but they didn't actually exist. I think this is similar to the OP's problem as well ("No such file or directory" is pretty clear if your locale is set right!).

comment How to change the date format?
+1 just for the "Then you need to tell the indicator which format to use. This has to be done in a format understood by the strftime function. You can look it up here." - I wasn't sure what format strings they were using, and found that reference awesome. Thanks!

comment USB drive install of Ubuntu 12.04 Server fails - can't find components from CD-ROM
I just tried this method, and it does indeed work, so +1 for that... However, I wouldn't call this the solution, as there's clearly a problem with either the Ubuntu disc image or the Universal USB Installer program.

comment How do I uninstall GRUB?
Can you dump the raw MBR data and post it here? You should be able to do something like sfdisk -d /dev/sdb > sdb.out.

Do not do this. The first command will wipe out the partition table (as the OP mentioned), but the second command will cause undefined behaviour if the MBR is not configured properly.
