comment Missing home directory in ubuntu 14
ahhh....with the comment, that everything that used to be in /home would no longer be present anymore including some package stuff that sometimes resides in /home. Thus you can reformat and remount /home but you'll need to go to backups to get the appropriate content back. Just creating the /home area, the system will probably work for the most part but there may be problems depending on the packages you exercise.

comment Ubuntu running slowly after accidentally filling hard disk
Sounds more like an out of memory going to swap type of situation. You might have something spinning out of control taking up a lot of memory. But you'll have to do a little detective work wit ps, top, and the like.

comment Why ssh is refusing connection?
You need to use the private key at the origination point of course (you do not say how you are doing this). At the endpoint, the private key needs to be present in the home destination directory with that appropriate permissions ~/.ssh/.authorized_keys.

comment My Ip address keeps changing each time I restart my virtual computer
I believe there is a setting indicating how long a DHCP reservation lasts. I have this problem on VMWare Workstations until I addressed it. You have of course another alternative of assigning a static address

comment apt-get updates don't seem to have fixed shellshock
You forgot to mention the linux distribution, and version number. If your distribution is not on the current version, this bug might not be fixed!

comment How to call a older version gcc?
I'd say you might be asking for problems as some of the bindings generated on the older versions of the compiler might not be compatible with the later operating system. So things using shared object libraries might have difficulty. Why not just use the latest version?

comment Resume failure after suspend
Not much information here has been provided for any of us to really give you a definitive action. You'll have to add a lot more information and do some detective work unfortunately. One ramdom thought I had was if you had sufficient SWAP space to support your entire memory and system contents as well as whatever is currently in swap space, as if I recall this is where all of the image is stored.

Looks like you have a marginal drive. Could also be one with connector tolerance problems (again a hardware issue).
