comment How do I reinstall Windows 7 (from Dell recovery partition) while keeping my dual boot configuration?
FYI, depending on the age and warranty of the computer, Dell will mail their customers the installation media for free, if you ask them. You just fill out an online form. So that's my "Plan B" if the recovery partition won't work. :-D

comment Apport-gpu-error-intel.py crash
Wow, my computer (Dell Inspiron 14Z ultrabook) has been freezing every few days ever since I bought it ... I turned off "Enable automatic crash bug reporting" in xdiagnose last week and it hasn't crashed since. Thanks!!

comment How do I disable Cisco AnyConnect VPN Client from booting on startup?
FYI, if Cisco's client is giving you trouble, you can instead try openconnect, an open-source vpn client compatible with anyconnect. It has a plugin to integrated it with the gnome network manager. humans-enabled.com/2011/06/…

comment How do I get an Atheros AR8131 ethernet card working?
@Robert - extract a .tar.bz2 file with the command "tar -xjvf (filename)". A similar driver installation is spelled out in more detail at ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=9449490

comment How do I get an Atheros AR8131 ethernet card working?
@Cas -- Thanks, alx got my AR8162 working! But it was not necessary to uninstall or blacklist atl1c. I just downloaded the driver tarball that you linked, installed alx per your instructions, and rebooted. I'm using ubuntu 12.04. Thanks again.
