Programming questions should be asked on programmers.stackexchange.com, and people can't help you with your code unless you post it.

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.

comment Installation of Gparted on SSD
You install it the same way you install all other software: open the software center, find it, click install. As for your password, you will have to remember it or look up how to reset it: you did choose one even if you set the system not to ask for it to log you in.

comment Installation of Gparted on SSD
@Rinzwind, he said he wants to partition other drives. Also gparted can grow a partition that is in use... it can even shrink it if it is btrfs. It just can't move it.

comment git showing version 1.9.1 when installing from apt-get and source
If you re-install from apt why would you expect to get a different version? Remove the one from apt and then you should only have the one you compiled yourself.

comment How to copy a diskette to another disketter
Why? Floppies have been obsolete for 15-20 years. They finally quit putting them in new computers around 5 years ago. They can barely hold one modern photo.

comment Ubuntu 14.04.3 overheating problems
@Zacharee1, nope, the OS is not normally in control. For a lot of commonly available hardware, lm-sensors does have drivers that can take control if you wish, but this is a bit of a hack and is certainly not something that is done by default.

comment Ubuntu 14.04.3 overheating problems
@Zacharee1, yes always... the fans are controlled by hardware, and it is up to the hardware to make sure that fans, heatsinks, and any other mechanisms function properly to prevent overheating, even when software runs the system full tilt.

comment Ubuntu 14.04.3 overheating problems
Overheating = broken hardware. Check that your fans are working properly, vents are not blocked, and finally, remove the heatsink, clean, reapply thermal grease, and reattach.
