comment What's the best way to report a kernel panic bug
But since this is a panic, it isn't straightforward to use apport, especially if it happens right away every time I boot. But I've heard about doing a chroot to give apport access to what it needs. How do I do that?

Thanks - +1 Can you add some links to how to apply chroot in this case, either to improve bug reports or to fix the installation?

Why would a media player require the ability to modify my music files, without even asking me? Scary.

comment How to find (and delete) duplicate files
Thanks. Note that the command name is "fslint-gui", and the command line tools are not in $PATH by default - they are in /usr/share/fslint/fslint. I was confused when I didn't get help on which package it was in by just running fslint (via /usr/lib/command-not-found).

comment How do I find out if there will be a fsck during the next boot?
Besides command-line tools like dumpe2fs and tune2fs, are there any GUI tools for finding this out? It would seem like a good feature for Gnome Disk Utility (palimpsest) but I don't see it there, or in Gparted....

comment How can I Push/Stream media to my Ubuntu box from a DNLA device
Good question. See How can I play content from a media server? - Ask Ubuntu for the case where you want to control it from the Ubuntu end (pull it to the player client rather than pushing from the server).

See also How can I Push/Stream media to my Ubuntu box from a DNLA device for something similar, but trying to control it from the media server (e.g. a phone) and use the Ubuntu box as the equivalent of a DNLP enabled TV
