comment converting logical partition to primary partition
I too am looking for a convenient way to do this from Linux. Sadly, GParted does not have this yet. Many Partition tools for Windows make this a breeze. In the past I've had to hand-edit C/H/S partition table boundaries and the Type field, all in binary--just to "trick" the OS while keeping all actual data in place--but I prefer to not have to still do it this way.

Tried the current 2.1.3. How to connect to the localhost mysql with this thing? Out of the box that is unclear. "No available connection provider" on Ubuntu 14.04

comment Found viruses on my machine by clamTK. Need help catching hackers
The false positive PUA.Script.Packed-2 is flooding logs daily, even though /etc/clamav/clamd.conf already has by default DetectPUA false Any idea how to disable scanning PUA in clamtk-scan/freshclam/clamav?

comment How to update the bios in ubuntu
Compared title to title, this is certainly not a duplicate question, but very valid in of itself (how to flash the binary image data, however extracted, into the BIOS/CMOS devices via Linux)

comment How to update the bios in ubuntu
The information is highly valued over the lecture. This is a very proper general question (outside of Asus notebooks too) and need to keep on searching for more native answers, if available.

comment Both named and dnsmasq serving DNS on port 53?
@zwets Generally, it is certainly not normal for services to be running on the same port, let alone at the same time, from the same host (including the recent 127.0.1.1 invention), on an out-of-the-box installation. This is also a DNS question. How, for example, can DNS zones be served to the public if bind9(the one with the actual zone records) is not listening on 0.0.0.0? How does Ubuntu canonical reconcile this?

comment Both named and dnsmasq serving DNS on port 53?
This is exactly my question. No, not all seems necessarily to be working "as it should"; this is one of many attack angles to eliminate info unrelated to other issues. For instance, XEN bridging side effects, VPN vs. LAN routing, etc.
