comment How can I troubleshoot why Ubuntu keeps crashing on my laptop?
I'm facing the exact same issue with my Lenovo laptop. My syslog and other files had nothing suspicious but output of <dmesg> had this statement [ 45.734653] [drm:gen6_sanitize_pm] ERROR Power management discrepancy: GEN6_RP_INTERRUPT_LIMITS expected 160d0000, was 16000000. A search in Ubuntu forums led to similar issues: ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2135522. So I believe this has something to do with Kernel update which happened some two days ago in my case. Maybe it's the same for you as power errors are in your list too!

On the other hand you can consider viewing videos with HTML5 version of YouTube. You can join the opt-in trial here: youtube.com/html5

comment What should I do when Ubuntu freezes?
The key pressing sequence is neatly described here (Ubuntu Forums: ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=11773367#post11773367), particulary for laptop where 'Fn' key makes a difference. I had to follow it on my Lenovo Ideapad - hold 'Fn' with left hand first, press Alt + SysRq in right, leave 'Fn' and continue with REISUB slowly.

comment Ubuntu 12.04 shutdown does not finish
I experienced this trouble 2-3 times. Now that I know pressing 'Tab' will show the log, I will do that if I see the issue next time.

You are able to use it as CentOS natively uses RPM packaging.

comment Drive Encryption - Situation after reinstall/upgrade?
My initial intention was to use Ubuntu's native encryption technology. If dm-crypt provides better security I can opt for that..

comment Access Wiki installation on Host from Virtual Server
I tried after restarting my machine. I am able to access the wiki with either IP or even userver in the URL before connecting to internet. After I connect to web using my USB modem wiki becomes inaccessible.

comment Access Wiki installation on Host from Virtual Server
No, while using NAT I had to use port-forwarding and hence 8080 was used. After switching to host-only this step was not necessary.

I have checked IP using ipconfig on virtual machine. It shows inet addr: 192.168.56.101 under eth0

comment How do I install Geomatica?
What you say is true about .rpm packages. But this is a commercial application which is provided in .bin form. I can't expect them to give .deb or source for it!

yeah, that's true. But sometimes I feel LibreOffice is buggy, it keeps crashing at times. So thought of looking for a better option.

comment Accessing IE only sites
Unfortunately none of the methods work for the particular site. In Firefox 4 the same problem continues and in Chrome it says "This XML file does not appear to have any style information associated with it. The document tree is shown below." and shows the document tree. For the moment I have unchecked accepted answer but if no other ideas come as answers I will check it again since it is the issue with only one site and this appears to be the only way to access such sites.

Didn't really try. In fact Ant Spotlight is my favorite. Also I must tell that it doesn't happen every time.
