comment How can I permanently disable the Dell Pointstick?
I have an E6420 at work (funny coincidence) and actually use and like the Pointstick. However, this was entertaining to watch someone tear down the same model of computer that I rather dislike using at work. Someone remind me to bounty this post when it becomes available.

comment Many 64-bit linux guests kernel panic on boot
LKML is unlikely to provide any support, since he's running under VirtualBox, which they consider to be crap. Furthermore, unless he can point to two different releases or git versions of the kernel, where one works and one doesn't, they have no reason to believe that the problem is the kernel's fault -- they could just as easily pin it on the hypervisor and wash their hands of it. Honestly that's what I'm thinking it is, too -- but we'll see once he tries VMware.

"(any suggestons?)" --> VMware Workstation :) If it works for you and this is for home (non-commercial) use, I'll even help you buy a license...

Holy hell, your updated question is excellently formatted. Great job. I've featured this in the Root Access chat. Feel free to stop by and seek "live tech support" from one of us. chat.stackexchange.com/rooms/118/root-access

comment Many 64-bit linux guests kernel panic on boot
You've asked a very good question with a lot of details, including what you've tried, which is commendable and great. However, to improve readability, I would like to recommend that you add some bulleted lists instead of long paragraphs of prose, e.g. listing the distros you've tried and whether they panicked or not. Let me know if you want help with editing.

Safe mode will disable the infrastructure (Windows services, drivers, etc.) required for the bluetooth stack to work, so no, it doesn't work in safe mode at all. However, see my update; I've narrowed down the problem.

comment Password required when trying to ssh into a server using Cygwin on Windows 7
OK, and are you sure you have the public key on the client side stored as id_rsa in ~/.ssh with similarly restrictive permissions?

Yeah, try uncommenting and setting PasswordAuthentication no. As for the permissions issue, check it in Windows Explorer. Try to go to c:\cygwin64\home\git. If you don't have access, but you are an administrator on the system, try taking ownership of it (in Windows Explorer).
