comment What are the IP addresses and port numbers for Ubuntu update sites?
"open" ports normally refer to incoming connections, not outgoing, which normally are unrestricted ( i.e. you can browse to any web site you want ). Thus you don't need to open anything.

Certainly not a duplicate of that.

comment Ubuntu Suspending Causes Windows 8.1 BSOD
Sadly, this is a case of broken hardware, or possibly a bug in windows, combined with oddly behaving hardware.

comment Ubuntu Suspending Causes Windows 8.1 BSOD
@waltinator, no, windows can not use a linux swap space, and even if it could, it would be fine to share swap as long as you actually shut down linux instead of hibernate it.

comment Grub does not start anymore after removing a btrfs partition
Unless the partition is where your /boot or / filesystems are, you can just remove it. Also the point of btrfs is to combine all of your storage space, even across multiple drives, into one flexible pool managed under a single filesystem rather than partition it up into different ones.

comment grub2 not showing in full screen
And what resolution is it running in when you get to the regular desktop? That sure looks to me like a monitor whose native resolution is in fact, higher than 1920 x 1080.

comment Grub does not start anymore after removing a btrfs partition
I am pretty sure that gparted error is because it is looking at your USB flash stick, which you created with dd rather than the startup disk creator app. You say it won't even load grub, then what does it do? Finally, putting the boot repair info report in your question would be kind of helpful.

comment GRUB see LVM disk with Kubuntu only after enter to BIOS
Odd.. the fact that entering the bios or exiting from the minimal grub makes it work points to the disk simply needing extra time to work properly, but ls still not recognizing partitions on the drive after waiting a few seconds says otherwise. Either way, this is a problem with your hardware; possibly the disk, but most likely your bios.

comment program cannot find libQt3Support.so.4
11.10 has long been end of life and no longer supported. By continuing to run it you have been exposing yourself to unpatched security vulnerabilities so you need to upgrade at once.

comment Motherboard drivers
There is no such thing as "motherboard drivers" in linux. Here drivers come preinstalled with the kernel.

comment Unable to boot windows8 after instaled ubuntu 14.04 in dual boot mode
Since the installer did not detect windows 8 and you chose to erase and reinstall, it wiped out your windows install.

comment grub2 not showing in full screen
Is that actually the native resolution of your monitor? And is that actually the mode it is running in? Usually you can press the buttons on the face of the monitor to get to some sort of information screen that will tell you what resolution it is in.

comment Disk is full but SDA3 has space
Yea, that should be enough space for the root fs, dig around with du and find out what is hogging it all. You might also try apt-get clean and apt-get autoremove to free up some space.

comment Disk is full but SDA3 has space
Are you sure you are running Ubuntu? If so, what version? df should be giving the actual location for your root fs instead of that /dev/root nonsense.

comment Cannot create partition table on SSD
And you got no error from the mklabel command? How about sudo dd if=/dev/sda count=1 | hd?

comment Turn power OFF of USB Ports - Ubuntu 10.04 machine
You are lucky then; on many systems it does not. Whether that actually cuts the power or not is entirely up to the hardware vendor. Also what are you now asking? If you got it working on one port then do the same thing to the others.

comment Ubuntu Server 14.04.1 Static IP breaks internet
Seems like your router is configured to not accept that address or to not accept an address it did not assign.

comment Which partition should I sacrifice for Ubuntu? :) (no more then 4 primary partitions problem)
Ummm... you don't need to sacrifice anything. You already have an extended partition, and plenty of free space. You just need to move sda3 to the left so the free space can be added to the extended partition.

comment Cannot create partition table on SSD
What the heck does "click apple" mean? You mean click the OK button? What if you open a terminal and run sudo parted /dev/sda followed by mklabel msdos and print?

comment Backup broken Device?
You said it no longer does load when you try to boot from it. And the fact that it is saying there is no medium loaded means it is completely out to lunch; you can't write to it either, so you can't format it.
