Perfect, thank you. I was so close.

comment Cannot uninstall VMWare Workstation 9 (Linux) - Instance of VMWare VMX still running, ACE VM running
By try again, what do I try again? Everything?

vmblock-fuse contains an empty directory (blockdir), and the 'dev' file repeats "I am vmblock fuse" over, and over."

I killed all vmmnet* PIDs, and /var/run/vmware/vmware-hostd.PID So far, nothing. It has to be possible to kill the other PIDs...

Nope. kill -9 4558. Result: bash: kill: (4558) - No such process.

Sorry, I'm in the middle of a lecture. Literally nothing changed. I've updated my answer. Maybe the peer-processes are somehow resistant to SIGKILL?

Updated my question. Is there a canonical means of determining the associated host application? I don't want to remove anything required by VirtualBox. Vmnet is probably associated with VMWare, but I could be wrong. If I'm wrong, that would be bad.

comment Expected performance degradation when accessing ORDBMS within VM as opposed to natively?
Had you experienced any significant increase in latency when dealing with the virtual appliance? What my question is asking is: will the increase in latency be prohibitive?

comment Resizing a partition in GParted (or, how can I traverse 5 other partitions prior to expanding /dev/sda6)?
This was actually surprisingly easy to accomplish. Thank you for your insight!

comment Resizing a partition in GParted (or, how can I traverse 5 other partitions prior to expanding /dev/sda6)?
So, expand sda11 by the desired MiB increase for sda6 ('x'), then can I click-and-drag to swap the unallocated segment with sda11? After the positional swap I'd shrink sda11 by 'x', and repeat 5 times?

This is true. I have access to Windows, and Mac computers on campus (but, how is this relevant?) My requirement is to be finished the partitioning operation tonight.

Considered? Yes. However, I'm in class tomorrow and require access to a complete development environment (Murphy's Law). Wouldn't the complicated restore operation be just as risky as the aforementioned partition traversal? I'd think so.

comment 50 USB webcams in a single computer. Is that really possible?
Huh, this is really interesting. Did you ever find the answer to your thought experiment?

comment What memory can go in my desktop?
Yes, you should be fine. When purchasing, match the CAS latencies as well. If they are different, will use the highest CAS latency.

CPU-Z -> Memory -> Channels # (e.g. Channels # Dual)

Yeah, it's definitely PC2-5300. Sorry @Shark, I had a long night last night.
