What to say, what to say... I'm currently attempting to either work out which of two senses of self I have is a delusion of the other, or to reconcile them. It's not easy.

comment Can I tag multiple artist in mp3 files from banshee?
Downvoting, admittedly some time later, because as far as I can tell this is an answer to a different question (one of editing metadata tags on many tracks, rather than of setting multiple artists on a single track, the latter being what the question was actually about).

@Web-E Thou sayest that, but my Raring image appears to have WUBI on it. I was surprised, given that it's supposed to be dropped, but there you have it.

Does the problem apply to a particular CD, or every CD thou'st tried?

comment 'sudo' command is broken
I don't recognise pam*.log, but try /var/log/auth.log for more information on what's going on. It looks like some PAM package or other has failed to upgrade; the best way to fix this will involve booting in single-user mode.

@gunjanparashar Don't worry about it; that comment is mostly for people providing answers as far as I can tell.

comment How to configure the clock date format to ISO 8601 in Unity?
@kaleissin WFM in 13.04 (just tested on a clean install). Try doing it manually in the dconf-editor, which now appears to be installed by default.

comment bumblebee::Cannot access secondary GPU - error: Could not load GPU driver
@Mohammad I know I'm a bit late here, but that looks like glxgears is nonexistent, possibly because the mesa-utils package is not installed. Try glxspheres, which comes with the virtualgl package.

comment Remove 3.8.0-030800
OK, my bad, didn't read the question about Grub Customiser; it wasn't relevant when writing the question. Fair enough. Nevertheless, entries should only appear in the GRUB menu after the use of update-grub if they are placed there by one of the entries in /etc/grub.d (some of them do things like call os-prober), and the filename should give an idea as to which is the culprit. Delete whatever is causing the 3.8 kernel to be added, and run sudo update-grub again, and it should be gone. I mentioned a pre-reboot test at the end of my answer.

comment Remove 3.8.0-030800
Check the contents of the directory /etc/grub.d - especially files like 40_custom. These are likely to have been placed by grub customiser. If any of them contain entries for the 3.8 kernel, delete the file (if it contains no entries for other things) or the entry from the file (if it does). Then run update-grub again. For future reference, it would have been useful to mention this "grub customiser" in the question.

comment How can I force apt to optimize the dependency tree for minimal download size?
@ObsessiveSSOℲ Things that might help in constructing a script: apt-get showpkg gives a full listing of dependencies (though I can't decipher how it deals with things involving alternatives (like apache2|http). The most useful part of this is the Reverse Provides section, which is the only way I can find to resolve virtual packages reliably.
