comment OpenOffice ruined my CSV file - (how to save CSV on Linux with OpenOffice?)
@Takashi, just created a CSV file (same method as above, doesn't seem to be any other way to create one). Just accept the default values, CSV file looks fine. You can remove step 3 by naming the file <filename>.csv this will do away with the need to touch the filetype drop-down and remove the 'Keep Current Format' confirmation by unchecking the tick box.

comment Reinstall latest linux kernel on Ubuntu 10.04
Oh yeah, I forgot about mount --bind 'ing the pseudo-fs. With my problem, I was able to boot into single user mode by adding init=/bin/bash to the grub entry and start up enough of a system to be able to start networking and finish the install. Glad you got it sorted.

Correct, linux-generic is a meta-package to the latest kernel.

comment Reinstall latest linux kernel on Ubuntu 10.04
This situation is not irretrievable, just might get quite technical. It's amazing how bad a linux machine has to get before a clean reinstall is the only solution. I ended up in a similar situation to this last night after doing an release upgrade but ended up rebooting the machine before it had finished.

comment LINUX - Is ubuntu a good platform to learn LINUX?
I would second the suggestion to use Gentoo. You may have to do everything by hand but their documentation is excellent.

comment X over Ethernet (use laptops as additional screen) in Linux? (maxivista)?
Not quite a slick as being able to drag a window from one monitor to another but you could use shifter.devloop.org.uk to handle moving an application from one screen to another and Synergy+ or x2x to handle mouse and keyboard input on slave machine.
