How to do Ubuntu 12.04.2 LTS commandline fan control?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 22, 2013
Running Ubuntu server 12.04.2 (brand new install) last night on the "Foxconn nt-A3700-0H0WBANA AMD A45 (Hudson D1) 1 x 204Pin AMD Radeon HD 6320 Black Mini / Booksize Barebone System" (just noticed that Newegg is giving away a free SSD drive with that - bummer). Anyway, I have installed the lm-sensors package, run 'sensors-detect', and 'sensors' outputs:
Adapter: PCI adapter
temp1: +64.0°C (high = +70.0°C)
(crit = +100.0°C, hyst = +97.0°C)
Adapter: PCI adapter
Running 'pwmconfig' gives me:
# pwmconfig revision 5857 (2010-08-22)
This program will search your sensors for pulse width modulation (pwm)
controls, and test each one to see if it controls a fan on
your motherboard. Note that many motherboards do not have pwm
circuitry installed, even if your sensor chip supports pwm.
We will attempt to briefly stop each fan using the pwm controls.
The program will att
How does DNS work?

I'm probably going to post bit by bit about each of my queries on DNS, to start with - when I register a domain name, I then have to tell the thing where my nameservers are, right? (the "NS" record). Why? Why can't the root server just have a line for the IP address of that domain name directly in *IT*?
How to install Ubuntu 12.04 32bit on an Late 2012 iMac using VirtualBox
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 11, 2013
I'm running the following;
New 27" Apple iMac i7 3.4GHz 8GB 1TB 7200 RPM 2012 THIN 2GB 680MX
And I just spent the last two days trying out VirtualBox and after a few rough starts it works fantastic. I can't imagine how well it'll work on a SSD drive that I'll pick up a little while later.
Here is what you do;
Download and install VirtualBox for OS X follow instructions to do that.
Download a iso 32 bit version of Ubuntu 12.04 (do not get the 64 bit version, do not get 12.10)
Once installed VirtualBox creates a directory VirtualBOX VMs off my home directory
Run VirtualBox and use this page as a guide, however there are a few changes from what he does that you need to do to get it working properly;
Study what he did BUT pay attention to the changes I did to get it working smoothly.

How to upgrade from 8.04 to 10.04?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 18, 2010
I am lost on pulling anything new from the repositories that my (*old*), but solid 8.04 releast. The synaptic front-end fails because apt-get fails. So, is there any magic incantation to upgrade me from 2+ year ago?
[[ Note that ideally I would like something for my latest notebook, an ASUS 900A that has 16GB of SSD. But first things first... . ]]
How to install Ubuntu 12.04 on a Chromebook?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 9, 2014
I'm thinking of buying a Chromebook and installing Ubuntu 12.04 on it. I know there are a lot of tutorials that detail this process using Crouton.
However, is there any way to install Ubuntu on a Chromebook without having to use a third party utility? I would really prefer to just install Ubuntu on it like you would on a desktop or a laptop.

How well will Ubuntu 14.04 support x86 touch devices? Which will work well (Surface?)
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 6, 2014
I'm considering buying an x86 laptop/tablet for use with Ubuntu. Something between MS Surface Pro 2 and Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga.
How well will touch devices like that be supported in Ubuntu 14.04?
There's a thread called Will Ubuntu work on the Surface Pro 2 like it did on the original? (it can be made to work, though not "out of the box")
How much better can I expect 14.04 to be and in which areas: do necessary kernel mods and device drivers make it to 14.04? Does the interface and programs accommodate touch devices better? Though full convergence may not come before 15.04, Canonical is moving in the direction of better support for touch devices, right?
I'm using 13.10 32-bit on ThinkPad X200 right now (8 GB RAM, SSD, with a docking station + monitor, keyboard and mouse at work).
Here's the thread for running Ubuntu on MS Surface Pro 2 specifically: Does it make sense to buy Surface Pro 2 for use solely with Ubuntu?
How to FULL install 11.04 on 4GB USB drive?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 8, 2011
I'm trying to perform a FULL install of 11.04 onto a 4GB USB drive, but the Ubuntu installer insists I must have at least 4.4GB free space.
I am able to run the ISO LIVE from a 1GB usb drive created with LiLi USB Creator , but the Ubuntu installer demands at least 4.4 GB to install .
I can give Ubuntu the entire 4GB drive, but how do I get past the Installer's 4.4 GB requirement?
I don't need the larger apps like Gimp/Office/Games to free up space. When I completely remove these apps from the persistent live install via Synaptic, I run out of space - Possibly due to cache issues. I'm very new and don't know how to proceed.
I am able to FULL-install and boot Fedora successfully as its installer does not have the 4 GB limitation.
Is is possible to install Ubuntu 11.04 onto the 4GB drive?
Thanks in advance!
