The guy you see to the left. Electrical/electronics engineering student mostly doing embedded development. Linux user since '05.

You might want to check what I am up to on my blog (in Portuguese mostly), my Twitter or my GitHub, or my skills are available on LinkedIn. Alternatively, if you want to see what I'm listening to, check my last.fm or Spotify profiles.

If you have any doubt/problem about my questions/answers, comment on them.

I will always try to comment why did I downvote, and will remove those downvotes if questions/answers are subsequently improved.

comment Maximum amount of hard drives in 64-bit Linux?
Edited your question, since "mounts" are not quite the same thing as "hard drives".

comment How can someone run a program under Windows 95 Mode when one is running Windows XP under virtual PC Mode on Windows 7 Ultimate?
The problem is that this box is uncheckable (i.e. it's greyed out).

comment Disable UPnP safe?
You will have to check all the devices that connect to your network, and see if any of those use UPnP. I presently do not have anything that uses UPnP, so I can't help much in that aspect.

comment Very slow copying over wireless between machines, but internet works at normal speed?
@JörgBeyer I don't understand what you mean by 'where is wlan in the picture', but in both situations (the one I describe on my original post and the one I describe in my comments) I'm using the WLAN.

comment Very slow copying over wireless between machines, but internet works at normal speed?
@JörgBeyer I think it's the WLAN, because when using a wired network, the problem does not happen. Using scp sourcemachine:file /tmp gives slightly better results (I get peaks of 1 MB/s, but then it slows down).

comment Running Windows 7 on Ubuntu
There is no need - or better, no way (as far as I can tell) - to assign '2 GB in RAM 1 and 2 GB in RAM 2'. Just assign 4 GB RAM to the Windows VM.

comment how to install a chrome on my RHEL 5.3 box
while it's possible, I don't think this is a good idea, might result in other stuff breaking.

comment how to install a chrome on my RHEL 5.3 box
This won't help, as the glibc in RHEL 5 is very old (glibc 2.5, while Chrome requires glibc 2.11 as per the error message).

Is the it an internal (PCI/PCI-E) card or an external (connected to an USB port) wireless adapter?

In fact, probably it does not work anymore on newer versions of Windows.

comment Switch off optimus in dell inspiron n5110 in linux
If it is not possible, try Bumblebee, as proposed below. While it's not perfect, works quite well.

comment Switch off optimus in dell inspiron n5110 in linux
Bumblebee works pretty well, but it's not automatic: you have to explicitly specify when you want to use the nVidia card.
