comment Showing all installed programs in Ubuntu
No, that displays the list of software packages that are installed. Many packages ( especially those that contain command line programs ) contain multiple applications, and many packages contain none ( they are libraries or data files used by other applications ).

comment How to have 2 (or more) distros share common /home and /usr partitions?
The only thing you have to watch out for with hibernation is make sure not to hibernate one OS and then boot or resume another.

comment SMB encryption for connection from internet
@LukasBeran, no, it is not obscurity through obscurity, nor connecting to every disk twice. It is to have two different means of connecting to a disk; one that is encrypted ( and thus secure ) , and once which is not ( and thus fast ), and choosing between the two basted on whether you are at home or away.

comment How do I add PAE flag at startup?
Strange.. so it seems your cpu does support pae, but does not identify itself as such. You should check if your manufacturer has an updated bios that might fix this.

comment Just removed system-reserved-drive, can't boot into Ubuntu 14.04 anymore
Ahh, yes.. you can thank HP for this foolishness: the bios is not supposed to know or care about the boot flag ( nobody does except for the DOS/Windows MBR boot code ), but every now and then some manufacturer decides they think they know better.

You will have to be more specific than "doesn't work".

You will have to describe exactly what goes wrong when you try to boot.

comment External USB Harddrive not recognized
Based on the errors in your dmesg, it appears to be a hardware problem. Either the drive is dead, or possibly the sata cable has been unplugged.

Define "don't recognize it"

comment Possible to make new bootable USB while using a trial Ubuntu USB?
13.04 reached end of life years ago and so you should no longer be using it. If your question is how to download a more recent version when that is the only working system you have, you will need to be more specific than "it doesn't work".

comment Operation on one disk overloads other disks
@stant, the payload is a property of the pci express bus, not SATA 2. If you are talking about the difference between hdparm -t and hdparm -T, then the former should show what the drive can do ( 150-200 MB/s ), and the latter should show what your ram can do ( 10,000+ ), since that is where the cache is.

comment Operation on one disk overloads other disks
@stant, then it looks like my original theory is correct. Out of curiosity, try running sudo lspci -vvv | less and find the first line that reads "DevCap: MaxPayload xxx bytes". In my case it is only 128 bytes and this somewhat small packet size seems to explain my my P8P67 gets somewhat less than the expected total throughput that it should to the built in SATA controller.

comment Operation on one disk overloads other disks
@stant ahh, so given the names listed in lsblk, which one were you accessing with dd/pv, and which one's performance suffered as a result?

comment Which VPN to choose?
@Fabby, he isn't asking how to set up the apple device, but rather how to set up an Ubuntu server so the apple devices can access it, and so it is not off topic.

comment Operation on one disk overloads other disks
@stant, also /dev/md2 contains your reserve-backups volume group, which you totally destroyed by running pv < /dev/zero > /dev/md2
