comment New to Linux. Cannot install anything; missing dependencies
Wow, you broke something real good on your system. All of the dependencies are for a minimum version, and it says you have a newer version than that already installed, which would satisfy the dependency.

comment How do I remove raid make all three disks in my system separate and stand-alone without reinstalling?
Raids don't create themselves.. the ubuntu desktop installer doesn't even support raid properly. If you set it up and don't want it, then you'll have to reinstall.

comment QEMU/KVM Physical Hard Drive
What? If you want to use a physical disk, then use a physical disk, not an image file. i.e. /dev/sdc.

comment ZRAM vs. regular swap partition
@MadHatter, when the kernel swaps data out to the zram device, it then compresses that data and keeps it in ram. It can not then be swapped out again ( to disk or otherwise ). zcache is kind of a better solution than zram. The one thing zram can do that zcache can't is run without any on disk swap. Lowering the swappiness value sacrifices the disk cache in favor of NOT swapping, which kind of defeats the purpose of zram. If anything, I'd turn it up.

comment Where are cron logs stored on Ubuntu 14.04?
crond mails the owner of the job, not necessarily root, so if it is your own job you installed with crontab -e then you get the mail. This is also true whether or not the job "fails"... it simply emails you a transcript of any output the job had.
