You need to run sudo apt-get update and sudo apt-get upgrade first.

comment Software RAID 1 is only showing half its expected capacity
@DavidFoerster, yes, but he's talking about raid1. You want one swap on a raid1/5/10 so that if a drive dies, your system doesn't crash because it just lost things in swap.

comment Software RAID 1 is only showing half its expected capacity
You misunderstand raid1. It stores a duplicate on each drive, so you don't get any more capacity than one drive. You should use raid10 instead.

comment How to install [filename].txz files
@EliahKagan, I suppose, but I don't think that difference is enough to merit a separate question... it still comes down to "extract archive, follow instructions", whether those instructions are compile source code or run a binary installer.

comment How to install [filename].txz files
@EliahKagan, how do you figure that? The only difference is this is about using xz compression instead of gzip or bzip2.

You can't just pick a static IP address, one has to be assigned to you by your ISP.

comment Convert external hard drive RAW to NTFS partition
There is no such thing as "RAW" format.. that's just Windows' way of saying it has no idea what filesystem ( if any ) is on the disk.

comment Writing to a specific memory location
The device tree simply tells the kernel information about ARM hardware. It is provided by the bios and is read only. Even if you could change it, that wouldn't actually change the hardware -- only what the kernel knows about it.

comment Ubuntu doesnt read my hdd data and just says it has a bad sector?
You don't run fsck on a whole disk, you run it on a filesystem, which lives in a partition.

comment Cant get back to windows after uninstalling ubuntu
@Hellreaver, no, it adds its own, which is one of the major benefits of UEFI: multiple OSes can each install their own boot loader instead of having to replace the existing one. UEFI firmware normally has a boot options menu that lists any installed OS boot loaders, as well as any on removable media. There is of course, one default, and when you install Ubuntu, it sets itself as the default, but typical uefi firmware provides a menu to choose a non default option.

That is a statement ( and an incorrect one ), not a question.

comment Force primary HDD to be as secondary?
If your bios won't let you boot from the other drive, then you're out of luck. Contact Asus.

comment 100% Inode usage on /dev/loop0
You installed using WUBI ( puts ubuntu in a file on your windows partition instead of on its own partition ). This is no longer supported. Get rid of it and reinstall it properly on its own partition.

comment Cant get back to windows after uninstalling ubuntu
If it's UEFI, the bios should simply have an option to boot windows instead of ubuntu.
