comment How to Share folders in 14.04 Server with Gnome
@chrislott At the moment it was a requisite. Do not know if it is right now (It may be related to some common libraries). All I know is, without installing it at that moment, it simply did not work. What I actually do afterwards is "sudo pam-auth-update" and remove it from the list.

comment “Back” and “Install Now” buttons grayed out in 14.04 installer
@Yuck Like i said, you would go back, then forward again. The continue will be working. Depending on where in the install steps, you would need to do stuff like brenton mentioned above.

comment Kernel Panic block (2,0)
The issues I had here were: 1. The one the OP is suffering from which landed me on the link you provided. I also would have provided that link if not for the chance of having the same HW. 2. UEFI setting was not very friendly in booting the USB drive. I also want to mention this exact thing happens on the IdeaPad Z50 and Z510-70. Basically you either have "luck" and it works or you don't. A Firmware upgrade did not help. So to avoid spending hours or in my case 4 days on it, bye bye windows But again, many thanks for pointing it out, this could have been lost for anybody with the same issue.

comment Kernel Panic block (2,0)
Hi @MichaelLindman I would have marked this as duplicate if it were not because, as luck would have it, I am using the same model at work. None of the answers in the duplicate link worked (They are also very old and might not take into consideration the whole UEFI thing). Still many thanks for pointing it out.

I agree with your comments. Some user-friendly optional features would be great.

comment Why doesn't the command upgrade work
@muru I would guess because of the way it is pronounced but still, 99.99% of all sites that show that will show how to type it correctly.

@muru Really? If that is true then the question will be closed for the user did not even take the time to see he was typing it wrong.

@Takkat Many thanks, in my case, I happened to have a USB headphone (Basically not connected to the internal audio system). Will update the answer.

comment How do I install the Nvidia drivers?
@Fabby Your comment has killed a cat... also that is why I added the Link there as a "Xorg title". But yes, I will follow your excellent advice and point to this. Thanks buddy.

comment How to check Internet Speed via Terminal?
@EmilBorconi You are correct but in real life, we are not doing benchmarking Internet speeds here, this are just your average current speed tests of any home user without the need for sites like speedtest. A download speed (Which is enough for anyone trying to see if they are having a bottleneck) is a good enough test. A full down/up speed test would check what the full scope of your speed is based on your ISP. So yeah that would be the best solution, but for any fast test scenario, even a simple wget would do the trick since normally people worry more about download speed than upload.

comment Speed up booting time without losing choosing capability in grub
@rubo77 You can still access the menu by leaving SHIFT pressed or ESC (Don't remember which right now). Or tapping at one of those.
