You need to open a terminal to run terminal commands, not search for them in unity.

comment APT-GET: Does APT-GET store its # updates somewhere?
@chow, then you can apply a little more scripting to test if it has been run in the last x minutes already, and skip it if it has.

comment Automatic say yes to make ext3 file system on disk
By and large, Linux software will handle it fine, but Windows will see it as blank and offer to format it. It also can cause problems installing a boot loader to the disk, and locks you out of resizing and adding another partition later.

No idea what you are asking. Do you mean where is your /home directory?

comment Can users passwords be cracked from etc/shadow file?
@KevinSoviero, the question is not which has more entropy, but how difficult it is to find the password, given the hash. The that is entirely dependent on the time it takes to compute the hash and how complex the password is. The length of the hash only matters if you are looking for a duplicate password that gives the same hash.

It doesn't matter what hash you use; if you have the hash and enough time, and assuming the password is relatively short ( it isn't hundreds of characters long or more ), then you can find it.

comment The volume boot has only 40mb disk space remaining
How did you manage to get this installed? The minimum size for your system partition is 6 GB... the installer usually won't let you proceed if you don't have that much, and really it should be at least 10 GB. I think you just need to reinstall.

comment Why can I create Users with the same UID?
@bigbadonk420, the term "supported" is rather nebulous. It certainly is something you have always been able to do on unix systems and it used to be a fairly common backdoor to set up another user that has uid 0 so you can log in and effectively be root, without needing to know or change the password on the normal root user.
