Elected moderator on Unix & Linux. Feel free to @ping me in chat if there's anything I can help you with.

I've been using Linux since the late '90s and have gone through a variety of distributions. At one time or another, I've been a user of Mandrake, SuSe, openSuSe, Fedora, RedHat, Ubuntu, Mint, Arch and for the past few years Linux Mint Debian Edition (which is basically Debian testing but more green).

My Linux expertise, if I can grace it with such a lofty title, is mostly on manipulating text and regular expressions since that represents a large chunk of my daily work.

comment Join two files keeping the element order of one of them
@glennjackman why? The OP basically wants those lines from file2 whose first field is in file but in the order they appear in file1. At least, that's what I surmise from their desired output. Am I missing something?

comment How to boot to Ubuntu ISO image on drive?
Please edit your question and clarify where your /boot is mounted. Is it a separate partition? Is it on /dev/sda1? ALso, please post the generated /boot/grub/grub.cfg file or at least the relevant menu entry.

comment Remote connection from Ubuntu to Ubuntu
Please edit your question and explain what exactly you want to do. What kind of connection do you need? Command line? Graphical? Do you only want to copy files? Have you tried googling "remote desktop ubuntu"?
