comment How to install specific Ubuntu packages, with exact version?
@Cookie, you can't use = since the repository only contains at most two versions: the one that was there at release, and the most recent update. If you want two wholly different releases to use the same version there is no supported way of doing that, hence why you have to build it from source yourself and deal with any problems that may arise from that.

@Cookie, build and install it locally rather than using the ubuntu repository.

gparted doesn't see the disk at all? What does see it?

comment Choosing which hard drive to boot from
Question is unclear: "a way to get windows to use the windows boot manager"? What else would it use? "is there an easier way to make grub recognize the bootloader on another hard drive": easier than what? You already said this worked fine.

Check /var/log/syslog for more details on the cause of the failure.

comment How to speed up rsync/tar of large Maildir?
@MikkoRantalainen, the ordering is not a requirement of the application, it is a requirement of the filesystem, hence, why the filesystem should order them however it is best.

comment How to install specific Ubuntu packages, with exact version?
@Cookie, what the heck are you talking about? Of course different releases have different versions, and running a package meant for one release on a completely different release is not supported. That is not what this question is about.

comment Change initramfs script
What exactly is the configuration? You should be able to do the same thing with just mdadm and it will work better. dmraid is not well supported and so the only reason to use it is if you must dual boot with windows.

comment Change initramfs script
Why would you do that? If you need to dual boot with Windows, use fakeraid, and otherwise, avoid it and just stick to mdadm.

comment Change initramfs script
Wait, are you saying that you are using a via fakeraid with an md software raid stacked on top of that? Why? Can you provide the output of sudo parted -l for starters?

comment GParted claims whole hard drive is unallocated and gives warning about GPT table
I'm guessing that the OP is running 12.04. More recent versions of gparted properly show a pop up window with such errors offering the choice to fix it. Command line parted would also do this, even in 12.04.

comment hdparm issue / problem verifying TRIM
First, you haven't done any trim operation, so of course you aren't going to get back zeros after writing random data. Second, most drives do not immediately zero trimmed blocks; they just mark them as unused so they can be reclaimed at some point in the future.

comment How to Tell if Network Traffic is Encrypted
If it looks like it isn't encrypted in wireshark, then it isn't. If it is, then wireshark will say that it is encrypted and be unable to show the contents.
