comment how can I increase my RAM size with a swap partition?
You already have a swap partition as one is set up by the installer, and you see it shown by swapon -s.

Looks like you are out of ram and swapping like mad.

comment SSD slows down six months after install
Yep, did that myself ( though I just used hdparm to do the secure erase, and lvm to move the system to a hdd temporarily then back without even having to reboot ) before my ssd crapped out.

comment How to install Ubuntu server with UEFI and RAID1 + LVM
grub2 handles booting lvm on md directly without a /boot partition just fine, and has for a few years at least.

comment Battery issue in Asus with ubuntu 12.04
Some laptops have a key with a little blue battery icon on them that you can hit with the Fn key to enable/disable charging. Maybe you hit that by accident?

comment Asus H87-PRO /usr/sbin/pwmconfig: There are no pwm-capable sensor modules installed
@vorburger, coretemp is just the cpu internal temperature monitor. It looks like your board has a Nouvaton chip that isn't yet supported, so you are out of luck, unless you feel like trying 14.04 where support may have been added.

comment LVM volume not accesible after accidental drive removal, now LV Status is suspended
It won't work since the lvm super block is at sector 2048, not 1.

comment LVM volume not accesible after accidental drive removal, now LV Status is suspended
Starting at sector 1 is very goofy ( no partitioners will do that normally ), but if it had originally been there and changed, lvm would no longer recognize the pv... unless you did something really goofy like use pvcreate --uuid to recreate the pv label at the new 2048 sector offset, then restored the previous metadata?

comment LVM volume not accesible after accidental drive removal, now LV Status is suspended
No, the problem is that somehow, sdb is not as large as it is supposed to be. Even after fixing the partition table to maximize the size of the partition, you are still short 176 sectors. I'd say it's time to restore from backup... and check the SMART health of sdb; it may be failing...

comment Ubuntu 13.10 Press S To Skip Mount Or M For Manual Recovery corrupted fstab can't modify
@ZekeDroid, the recovery menu. The one that lets you choose to fsck, remount rw, drop to a root shell, or boot normally.

You can't be getting the same error, double check dmesg...

@hirofairlane, and fdisk -l?

comment LVM volume not accesible after accidental drive removal, now LV Status is suspended
@hirofairlane, you will need to reboot for the changes to take affect ( you should have seen a warning message from parted telling you this ). As for ext2, the argument is really meaningless these days and parted doesn't understand a filesystem type for lvm.

comment How to prevent accidentally unmounting and destroying my Windows drive from Ubuntu?
If you don't have any files open on it, then you are allowed to unmount it, if you are using files on it, then it won't let you unmount it.

comment How to prevent accidentally unmounting and destroying my Windows drive from Ubuntu?
Why do you think you will wreak anything? It won't let you unmount a volume if it is in use.
