comment Can I kick users off my dongle?
What does this have to do with Ubuntu? You'd have to ask ee how to use their device.

comment How do I hibernate with swap file without swapping?
Perhaps they are old, but it is highly unlikely they removed it before the process was done: the startup disk creator is pretty clear when it has finished with the drive.

comment How do I hibernate with swap file without swapping?
USB sticks also tend to randomly corrupt your data quite frequently. You would not believe how many bug reports get filed from people trying to install Ubuntu using a usb stick and it just corrupted some files they just wrote to it.

comment Ubuntu won't boot after booting into windows 10
You have a boot sector virus installed in Windows that is reinstalling itself to the boot sector every time you boot it up, replacing grub.

comment Live version of Ubuntu Server?
@mikewhatever, sorry: I just read that as remove quiet and splash, and did not see the text part. That actually is a pretty good answer so you should post it as such.

comment Live version of Ubuntu Server?
@mikewhatever, changing those options just make the cui not be hidden; it is always there underneath, but the defaults of quiet and splash just keep it hidden under a friendly splash screen until the full gui finishes loading, thus avoiding the "scary" transition from cui to gui for those who have the gui installed. This really doesn't answer the OP's question.

comment What is random : Nonblocking pool
It's got nothing to do with your problem since it is already done by the time you see that text. It is whatever follows that is taking a long time.

comment Windows 8 host, Virtual Machine with Ubuntu 15.10. Reinstall with more VRAM, is it possible ? Or…?
What would reinstalling have to do with it? Virtualbox only provides a very basic, 2d only virtual video card to the guest. If you want Ubuntu to make full use of your video card you have to run it for real.

comment How disable second disk on laptop?
If you don't mount it, then it isn't being used. Did you configure it to be automatically mounted somewhere when you installed? If not, then it should have an icon you can open, but if you never open it ( or if you have, then right click the icon and eject/unmount it ) and then it isn't being used.

Well, either you did not install the DIMMs correctly, or they are not a type your motherboard recognizes.
