comment WD Black² Dual Drive motor always stops and starts
I agree. I just bought one, activated in under Windows7, and it runs just fine on Ubuntu with bcache. The performance is great, much faster then hybrid SSHD Seagate Momentum.

@emikesch Can you describe the experience you had with the drive on Ubuntu? Is it working?

where is the bounty you promised?... :-)

comment How to install Ubuntu with both disk encryption AND SSD caching
I don't see why LUKS would exclude bcache... They don't depend on each other and one can happily sit on top of the other.

comment How to install Ubuntu with both disk encryption AND SSD caching
You should understand, that the /boot partition most certainly will have to be unencrypted. bcache was incompatible with grub on Ubuntu 14.04 and I believe it still is.

comment How to use ubuntu as a bluetooth headset to the mobile phone?
None. For the moment I just accepted the fact, that Ubuntu ain't a microphone... ;-) I hope someday someone finds a way how to do it.

comment How to modify rootfs of an unprivileged LXC container?
Cool. I built a whole /etc/subuid parser exactly for this purpose...

comment Completely Uninstall Steam and ALL steam games
There is also a ~/.steam directory to remove. It contains EULA and some symlinks. Delete that too.

YES!!! But then there is another thing: how to map it into the «end» key?

comment How do I setup an encrypted swap file?
@muru On Ubuntu 14.04 there is no need for such script. If I recall correctly, the early booting scripts parse the /etc/crypttab for a line like cryptswap /dev/sda5 none luks and asks the user for a password autmatically

comment How to let built-in DHCP assign a static IP to LXC container based on name, not MAC address
Restarting the service lxc-net is only needed to let the dnsmasq use configuration from /etc/lxc/dnsmasq.conf (and this piece of information is present in the /etc/default/lxc-net which is unknown to the dnsmasq). If you had it set before, just another SIGHUP should suffice.

comment How to let built-in DHCP assign a static IP to LXC container based on name, not MAC address
I like the idea of delegating list of hosts to a external file. Besides that, your method differs from mine because of the killall -s SIGHUP dnsmasq. I agree, that just "SIGHUP-ing" dnsmasq is more efficient then restarting the whole daemon (especially if it doesn't work without patching its upstart scripts).

comment Mount and access similar BTRFS filesystem
I'm sorry, I misunderstood your question. It looks like a bug on part of btrfs. If I were you, I'd ask on the btrfs.wiki.kernel.org/index.php/Btrfs_mailing_list (and if you do, please post some feedback here as well!)

comment Mount and access similar BTRFS filesystem
Just mount. If the volume is not part of btrfs raid (which I have no experience with), the volume should mount just fine. And as you mentioned, all subvolumes will be accessible too. You can get a list of them with sudo btrfs subvolume list <path inside the mount point>

comment Is it possible to use services that provide their own pid, like dnsmasq, to use with upstart?
Wow! Too bad I learned it so late. I already spent two days cooking my own version of Serge's upstart scripts...

True, but then there is nothing to protect you against giving two guests the same IP. See my accepted answer - it solves the problem.
