comment Best way to encrypt file on Ubuntu but readable on a Windows machine?
what is the point first to encrypt stuff, which later is readable in windows 8? any -seldomly- occuring windows malware hence can read all your data, right? sure you keep win8 clean ;) No offence intented, but I would really like to know what could be the reasoning behind this. I am quite glad that my Win cannot read my linux partitions

what would find /sys/class/hwmon -follow -maxdepth 3 show you. This directory hwmon often stores the info and allows the stearing of them cpu-temperature and fan-satus

comment how to enable internet with ubuntu 10.04
Any specific reason you opt/choose the quite out-dated 10.4 version of ubuntu? A thought: maybe 12.04 would not give you the same troubles?

comment How can I connect from Ubuntu 12.10 to file shares on a Windows 8 system using a Microsoft ID for login?
If it was not posted in "Ask Ubuntu" this question would have nothing that would make it seem to be connected to Ubuntu. One could think it is a pure "win 8" problem.... strange

comment How may I improve my boot / shutdown time?
@ Linuxios I kind of did that once, copying an image of my <2.5GB /root parition to a tmpfs partition in ram. After the initial lengthy 2.5GB data copy it runs quite quickly. Still as @ Linuxios says the linux caching kind of achieves similar speeds. This comment is just to say: It is not absolutely crazy to have a linux run in RAM. It is doable. when copying back the image before shutdown it can even become a persistent thing :)

comment How may I improve my boot / shutdown time?
It is very nice to see you have discovered this wait_for_root etc swap related issue and managed to bring your boot time down. @alci regarding you "quite big 8GB" I was wondering what you use your PC for so that it makes sense to you to use a swap after all? Do you even ever use the swap partition , hence some application of yours is using > 8GB ram? wow? elsewise you might have avoided swap troubles by not using it in the first place.

comment How may I improve my boot / shutdown time?
it is good you made progress with the shutdown. Have you had some luck with the boot process? is UDEV the culprit?

comment How may I improve my boot / shutdown time?
I know this is unrelated. But still I do not wanna miss suggesting to you to use suspend (to ram / to disk) as an alternative. From "off-state" to "running-state" this is less than 3 sec for my weaker system

comment Are ubuntu packages (deb-files) only md5sum secured?
ok. But what would be the good way to refer to the current state of MD5 security now, if not "broken"? I can understand what you say and I thanks for pointing that out. I still wonder how to evaluate the current safety by MD5 etc.

comment Are ubuntu packages (deb-files) only md5sum secured?
I have gained some clearer insight. Where did you get all this information, which I have such a dificulty in finding? Do you have some docus/links you used? Also I appreciate the mentioning of the "downgrade-danger" you mentioned, so I do not yet understand how excatly this might be exploited. Great! thank you
