comment How do I get a Ralink RT3290 wireless card working?
It actually worked on 13.04 up to 14.04. The problem was that I was denied sharing the minor fixes. The code will work but you need to do some light clean up on it to avoid those warnings. I do no have the card anymore but I wrote to ralink about sharing the uploaded code here and I basically got a no go.

comment How to block specific apps from opening in specific accounts
Right now the security level is minimal. The users would only need to be denied access (by any means) to any type of app. The users I would guess have a low knowledge of Linux and probably will never use the terminal but you could add any information about it.

comment How to enable or disable services?
Ok I have tested postgres and postfix at least. Both work correctly ether using the old /etc/init.d path or the service command. Both do not work when using the upstart shortcuts (start,stop,restart,status) so I made a update on that part. You should at least be able to manage them using the other 2 ways.

@JoeMurray Thanks for the feedback. Let me get back to you with an answer when I get home. For what I remember, postgres for example can have multiple instances on Ubuntu, so it needs to be managed in another way.

comment Enable Mic in Wine ? (Alsa/Pulseaudio)
Which version of Ubuntu are you using. I ask since Wine 1.5 is not supported/default on Ubuntu since a couple of versions ago. If you are not using a supported Ubuntu version and an upgraded Wine (Like 1.6 or 1.7) then you will have many problems getting an answer.

comment Download speed on Ubuntu 14.04 on wired connection very slow
I am starting to believe the speed limit is imposed by some configuration in the router for some ports/protocols or any other network device between you and your ISP. You say in Windows it is working correctly. Are you connected directly to the modem/router of your ISP just to eliminate any doubt about a network device limiting your speed. Maybe the MTU has a very low/high size. If you could check that or even tell your NIC not to work at a Gigabit speed but a 10/100 forced speed.

comment How to install Hadoop?
The 2nd update lines is optional for anyone that ones to use the PPA, there are other alternatives. The 1st one is to update and upgrade the system in one line. The 2nd line just shows the same line because we added an additional PPA (which is optional depending on who wants to use it).

comment How to add software RAID-1 to an existing non-RAID system?
I would first ask how many disks you have with the same size (Need at least 2). Where is the boot part of Ubuntu (in sda, sdb, sdc...). In case you have only one disk, then how many partitions have you setup (in case you want a RAID 1 using only one physical disk but you will loose the whole point of raid1) which have the same size. Also you do not need to do anything to grub until we can understand what you actually have and how it is configured right now. Other than that, excellent question.

comment 14.10 System turn off display and don't response
Can you check the comment by Bulrush and also explain exactly at what point of the boot stage does the display turn off? Is it before the grub menu, when the BIOS appears, after grub menu, when lightdm is starting, when the desktop appears? For the freezing part, I would recommend booting a LiveUSB and from the ubuntu menu select memtest just in case.

comment 14.10 System turn off display and don't response
Did you try recovery mode, changing boot options on the grub menu like noacpi. Did you try anything already?

comment Wifi not working - Ubuntu 12.04/14.04 LTS - Realtek 802.11d RTL8192EE
Hi travisb, is it possible for you to upgrade to 14.04 or even 14.10. This way we can help you better since 13.10 is officially not supported. You can see which versions are still supported in en.wikipedia.org/wiki/…

comment how do I set up network interfaces with Virtualbox
Please add version of VirtualBox. It really affects if you are using an older version since each update receives many network updates and fixes. For example, for me with the latest 4.3.18 using as host Windows 7 and Ubuntu 14.04, it is working correctly.
