comment Is there any utility to manage battery charging on a Toshiba Satellite laptop plugged to AC power so as to save the battery lifetime?
Batteries like to be fully charged. They don't like to be fully discharged, so just plug it back in or shut it down before the battery gets too low.

comment How can I resize an active LVM partition?
@v0idnull, based on your new information, your lvm partition is full but has plenty of unpartitioned space after it, so you just need to resize it to include that space, then you can grow or create more logical volumes. You can do this using gparted, or the parted resize command. If you go the parted route you will need to run pvresize on the partition after to tell lvm about the new space.

10 gb for the bios_grub partition? It only needs to be 1 mb ( actually 64k is fine ). Also if your system is booting in efi mode, then you have to install in efi mode.

You said you wanted to blow windows away anyway and you can't brick a computer by installing an OS...

comment [Firmware Bug]: Duplicate ACPI video bus devices for the same VGA controller
It is warning you that you have buggy bios and as long as your video output is working, you can ignore that message. It has nothing to do with your camera working.

comment Mount single logical partition from image of entire disk (device)
What do you mean? It works just fine for logical partitions. Instead of mucking with offsets, you can also just run sudo partx -a /dev/loop0 to get all of the partitions to show up normally.

Define "safe"... I mean the computer isn't going to melt into a puddle on the floor or blow up and kill you or anything.

comment How do I free up more space in /boot?
@svandragt, there basically is no reason left to need a /boot partition these days. About the only one left is if your bios is broken and can't see the whole disk, and any machine made in the last decade doesn't have such a limitation. Other legacy cases such as using raid or LVM are now handled properly by grub2.
