This solved the misalignment warning, however, my question is how do I partition my HDD right away using the proper sector sizes etc. such that no misalignment occurs.

comment Pam_mount won't automount encrypted partiton
Thanks for the response, but now, I cannot use crypttab since it will ask for the password at startup. The pam_mount module allows to decrypt a partition while you login into your user session if the encryption password and user session password are identical.

I wanna do pretty much the same but use a partition with custom password. I use pam_mount to automount the partition but it fails on Oneiric. Maybe you can have a look at it askubuntu.com/questions/73435/…

comment How to copy/paste a table from LibreOffice Calc to LibreOffice Writer
does not seem to work when pasting several columns into an existing table in writer. It will paste all columns into one single cell of the table instead several columns.

"shutdown -P 1" - works well and shuts down the system in 1 minute, no time unit needed.

comment How do I get Synapse to search my Tomboy notes?
I installed the packages from the ppa, installed the tomboy datasource plugin and enabled it, rebooted. But still, Synapse won't parse any of the tomboy titles. If I open a Tomboy note via Tomboy it will show up in Synapse giving the title and the location: note://title//somenumbers. Trying to open it via Synapse fails with the output: [UtilsLogger] The specified location is not supported In summary: Parsing of Tomboy notes does not work even with the zeitgeist plugin enabled in Tomboy

comment Why am I experiencing super slow Internet browsing & downloads?
Hi, I also experienced a huge slowdown in Chrome / FF4. After reading this, I switched from my PCI ethernet card to my second (internal) and surf speed seems to be back to normal.

What if Zeitgeist Dataprovider is not available as a plugin to activate? Ubuntu 11.04
