I read a bit more about MBR and GPT and they make something in front of Disk to manage where starts partitions. Since i will use whole 1TB USB HDD external as backup for files and whole drive so maybe theres some pluses in DOnt partition? If some flaws then ill use MBR.

comment Ubuntu running too slow on USB stick
if your 4Gb USB was USB 2.0 then it wasnt "falling back" to USB 2.0 but using it and "falling back" only to USB 1.0. "Falling back" means running at falled back speed.

What effect gives rubbing magnet on the side of a drive? Will drive be faster couse of no MBR? I tryd for testing Dont partition and in sudo fdisk /dev/sdb -l it shows like this paste.ubuntu.com/1458634 Just now i found testing that using Dont partition i cant NTFS. I was hopping Dont partition is faster or better or mainly secure couse of lighter couse of less something in drive system configuration?

comment How do I backport VLC from 12.04 to 10.04?
Short: Latest is ok. Also ok from LTS could be ok. Witch is now 2.0.3. Long: I wanted to use VLC instead of Flash in Firefox. Since i couldnt get any greasemonkey script to work and no support from their developers then ill use method described in askubuntu.com/a/169410/9550 its using addons witch open YT link in VLC. Since VLC of 10.04 doesnt open YT links as it has been in previous versions and then fixed in them so now its fixed in latest VLC or in later version with Youtube addon witch doesnt work in 10.04 version. So step obtaining VLC is braking from testing VLC youtube support.

I tryd that already. Didnt help. Since im on Lucid and i added it then it adds that its Lucid. Since we see on launchpad.net/~n-muench/+archive/vlc2 he doesnt have ppa for lucid. So i tryd changing in Software Sources name Lucid to Precise and that doesnt help either. See what happens if i change to Precise this ppa paste.ubuntu.com/1426023

What do you mean by that? There is package? Where? If you can back up what you say then only write. I did all what you wrote long time ago befor i posted this question and searched a lot. You mentioned deb package once already but didnt gave info where it is. Now you say theres package and you cant find it yourself. Then why you write me to get something what doesnt exist?
