You still get that same error after running chkdsk /f?

If you are running dhclient on eth2, why would you expect it to do anything with eth0?

comment GRUB 0.97 menu after upgrade to 14.04 LTS on cloud VPS
You appear to be trying to use grub2 config file commands inside a legacy grub ( which hasn't been used since Ubuntu 9.04 ) menu.lst.

Your filesystem is corrupt. You will need to chkdsk it from Windows, since it is NTFS.

comment Does sleep mode limit CPU performance?
Umm... sleep mode means NOT running, so performance would be zero.

comment Are there processes that can't be stopped?
@muru, the word immune implies that trying to suspend it simply has no effect and it will continue running as if you did not suspend it, as opposed to the suspend being delayed.

@muru, yes, nfs is the one bad actor that still plagues us with long running uninterruptable sleep... yet it still does suspend when the uninterruptable sleep finally does finish.

comment Are there processes that can't be stopped?
@muru, not quite true... they can't be affected until the uninterruptable sleep ends, which is usually pretty soon, and then when the kernel returns to user space, the suspend is processed, so it isn't immune, it is simply delayed.

You need to specify exactly what commands you ran.

comment Boot-Repair cannot repair my SSD
I believe I had the same exact drive and had to take it out of service about 9 months ago because it started doing really fscked up things like randomly moving data blocks around leading to all kinds of hilarious corruption.

Their packaging is all wrong. You should stick to the version in the Ubuntu repositories.

comment Is it possible to use a dedicated parity drive without striping?
Indeed, the answer is simply you are looking for a program called snapraid. The link to download said program is provided as a convenience.

What version and where did you get this package? The one in ubuntu 14.04's postinst looks nothing like what you show.

comment How is 'rm -rf /' able to delete all files in the system?
The fact that the file is still kept as long as it is open is actually pretty important because it isn't true that the program is loaded into memory as soon as it is run. Bits and pieces are loaded into memory as they are accessed. They can be discarded again ( note, they are simply dropped, not sent to swap, since they are already on disk in the source file ) if the kernel needs to free up memory, and then when the program needs them again, they are read in from disk once again.

comment Testdisk can't/won't recognise hard disk
If this drive is sdg then it would show up in both blkid and fdisk -l. What do you have in /proc/partitions?
