comment How do I use pm-suspend-hybrid by default instead of pm-suspend?
@JamesCaccese: In shellscript world, 0 means "true" and anything else means "false". Your scriptlet would work, but the original poster's scriptlet would work as intended as well, printing a '0' on supported and nothing on unsupported. If you want something that will always say supported or unsupported, try 'sudo pm-is-supported --suspend-hybrid && echo "supported" || echo "unsupported"'

comment Why isn't there a useful JBoss package?
Okay, PPA is up. Add the ppa:zanfur/jboss repository. Still in a state of flux, but is actually usable at this point. Package name is "jbossas". Doesn't quite conform to debian policy (jars in the wrongs places), but I'll get there.

comment Why isn't there a useful JBoss package?
--UPDATE 5 Feb 2012 -- I now have a jbossas4 4.2.3.GA package that is functional, with startup scripts and files (mostly) in the correct locations. Expect a PPA in a matter of days; I just need to make sure all the copyrights are proper before publishing publicly.

comment Does Ubuntu have the equivalent of a registry, especially for desktop GUI items?
dconf stores its user settings in ~/.config/dconf/user, a binary file. gconf stores its user settings in ~/.gconf. ccsm, in ubuntu, by default, stores its settings in gconf as well (though it doesn't have to).

@radek: please give us the output of df and of sudo parted -l (that's "ell" as in the first letter of "list", not "one"). I suspect that you have a root partition that is too small, and lots of free space elsewhere.

comment How do I get an application to appear as a choice in update-alternatives?
--set only gets you options listed by the --config option. So saith the documentation. For instance: $ sudo update-alternatives --set x-www-browser /bin/true update-alternatives: error: alternative /bin/true for x-www-browser not registered, not setting.
