comment Installing ATI Catalyst 14.20 beta on Ubuntu 12.04 throws error
I can send you 3 deb files made (fglrx_14.200-0ubuntu_.deb, fglrx-amdcccle_14.200-0ubuntu_.deb, fglrx-dev_14.200-0ubuntu_.deb). Yet it logs Error! Bad return status for module build on kernel: 3.16.0-9-generic (x86_64) /var/lib/dkms/fglrx/14.200/build/make.log contains In function 'KCL_GetEffectiveUid': /var/lib/dkms/fglrx/14.200/build/2.6.x/firegl_public.c:1787:5: error: incompatible types when returning type 'kuid_t' but 'KCL_TYPE_Uid' was expected return current_euid(); Makefile:88: recipe for target 'kmod_build' failed build failed with return value 2

Same problems! Been struggling with fglrx and crashy Xwindows ever since getting the Acer Aspire laptop. The credit (for the unacceptable quality and product+support failure) goes to ATI however.

comment Install installer package on an installed system?
Also useful if you find yourself in a situation with ONLY a bootable Ubuntu-based Live CD/USB, lacking an installer (like Boot Repair Disk), but otherwise having Synaptic/apt-get and networking.

Thank you! What about for LUbuntu? help.ubuntu.com/community/Lubuntu/Setup (All I had on me was a bootable USB Boot Repair Disk 64bit, but it lacks an installer)

comment HELP! Grub Rescue Mode
None of these suggestions seem to address what can be done at the actual grub rescue> prompt itself, eg.how to continue booting into an alternate partition or USB drive where Linux temporarily is, without having to reboot and rely on outside tools.

comment rollback GPT after failed 13.10 installation
Most of my critical data (my entire Docs subfolder) is backed up almost in realtime via the Google Drive service, so at least that's covered. Including revisions. Instead, the real loss here are the countless hours of collecting, installing and tuning programs within the system, their configurations, media files too large to sync to the a cloud, and so on. Usually it's been easier for me to uncover and repair the damage.

comment rollback GPT after failed 13.10 installation
I hadn't barely learned it this way. For years I've been shouting at the top of my lungs, that venders should provide off-harddisk install media, like Windows DVDs!! Microsoft is much to blame too...good luck trying to find 8.1 DVDs to fix the mess their upgrade caused (unable to complete, yet unable to revert back to 8.0, unable to fix automatically either way)
