I have an annoying message at boot, I'd like to have swap, what's the alternative to the swapoff command?

comment Allocating non-contiguous free space to an existing partition
All worked but the last bit with the UUID is it necessary? I'm on a VM. g@g-ubuntu-64:~ $ sudo swapoff /dev/sda5 swapoff: /dev/sda5: swapoff failed: Invalid argument

comment Monitor weirdness/flickering with new Vaio PCG-3112L
You might have discovered it by now but the VGA port of Vaio's is crappy. I have a Vaio VPCCW and when I use the VGA port to connect a monitor its fuzzy, flickering lines and all..

comment Using an older version of Photoshop to save on RAM?
although the basic problem is the PSD file I'm working on is made up from many groups of layers.. lighter files are easier

comment Upgrade laptop CPU from i3-330M to i5-whatever
Thanks, so to sum up it's a risk given that you can't know if it will work or not..

comment Upgrade laptop CPU from i3-330M to i5-whatever
I was looking that with 50$ I could go to 8GB of ram, then 150$ for an SSD and it would already look faster.. I'd need at least 600-700 for a new decent laptop (and it wouldn't be Vaio..)

comment Running Ubuntu with a WIN7 VM in order to use Photoshop
I have 4Gigs, yes. (I put a link towards my complete system specs). Would it be better to have Windows run natively and Ubuntu in the VM? I run Xubuntu which is relatively light.. I think Photoshop would work much better natively (on any machine)

I couldn't find the small vga you are talking about.. the HDMI is rather small already, most of the space is because of the VGA's screwfixes

comment How to login on my corporate network using a personal device
I don't know if I am going to do it but it's good to know how it can be done for educational purposes. I guess to do that I will need WireShark or something similar? I have the proxy IP userpass details as this is something we have to use in order to use the external web (internet)

comment How to login on my corporate network using a personal device
I don't think the IT department has any procedure setup for what I want... I don't know if its now allowed or simply there's no method setup so basically if you manage to do it yourself it's ok..
