Don't re-post the same question multiple times.

comment Is it possible to resize linux installation partition?
No, if you lose power while moving a partition ( which takes a considerable amount of time ), it will be entirely lost. And resizing to the left means moving left first, then extending.

comment Hard disk size limit for Ubuntu Server 14.04.1 32bit
@Jos, there's nothing in that linked question that says anything like that, and it certainly isn't true. Individual file size is only constrained by the filesystem ( FAT can only handle 4 GB ), and linux itself, which can handle 2^64 bytes.

You need to run the restore from the installed system, not the livecd.

comment apt-get unable to autoremove packages filling up Inodes
@LuísdeSousa, add the package that depends on that one to the list to be removed, prior to that one. i.e. dpkg -r linux-headers-2.6.32-43-server linux-headers-2.6.32-43

comment Can I get Ubuntu distro in .rar or .zip format?
Question really doesn't make sense. Either you need to fix your disc/burner, or use a USB stick instead.

comment svn checkout - An error occurred during decompression
Looks like either a broken server or a bad connection that is corrupting the data in transit. You will need to ask the svn developers for more info.

It would be much, much better to simply connect the two wifi access points with an ethernet cable.

comment Harddrive replication without *full* dump (dumping partitions is OK)
@Adeline, yes, but that isn't nearly enough room to do, well... pretty much anything at all, so grub just has the MBR load the subsequent few dozen sectors where the core grub code is stored.

Your bios is broken and is only reporting 4 GB of ram. You will need to consult HP for a fix.

comment Harddrive replication without *full* dump (dumping partitions is OK)
@Adeline, no, the units fdisk is using are sectors ( says so right there ). If the first 64k of the disk were part of sda1 then grub couldn't be installed there.

comment I am unable to mount my previous btrfs RAID 1 home directory on reinstall of Ubuntu server 14.04 (was using 14.10)
@effectivetechie, I don't know what you are asking now. If you want to mount it without the 5th disk, then you use the degraded option. That applies to fstab as well as manually mounting.

comment How can I divide the partitions?
You will need to be a little more specific. i.e. how do you want to divide things up?
