comment Set parameters for Linux Full Disk Encryption?
How are you planning on creating your volume? Is this through some kind of installer UI/GUI? Or are you creating them from the command line?

comment How to hide grub menu on boot and show it only when pressing a certain key?
There are several good answers that show up for a search for hide grub menu unless key is pressed. Did your research miss those? Did something not work about those?

comment Connecting to Ubuntu 14.04 via VNC connection from Windows — can I display only one monitor instead of two?
Do you actually need to see your physical desktop? If not, then spawn new VNC server session that is disconnected from your main desktop.

This looks like you are asking for a standard DNAT (ie re-write the destination address) rule to me.

comment Create empty MySQL database via batch file
Why do you have two seperate mysql commands? You need to authenticate every time you run the client, you can't authenticate with the first command, and then issue your statement. You just have one command line that both authenticates and issues your sql statement. Also you have a space character in -- user which you shouldn't have.

comment Permanently disable guest account in Windows 8.1
It sure seems like that should be denying local logins. I haven't actually tested this policy it with the guest account, or at all on Win8.1.

comment how to verify TBs of data copied from cloud
The trick of course is to generate hashes of the files that good before you need to check them. If you didn't generate any hashes there really is no way to know where the corruption happened after the fact.

comment Is password-less access to SSH using chroot setup possible?
About the only thing I can really suggest is that you set your client in verbose mode and watch for errors. If you don't find any, then adjust your SSH server to run in verbose mode and watch for errors related to your loging.

comment Is password-less access to SSH using chroot setup possible?
It should be possible, where have you placed the keys on the server? Are you sure you have given the keys and containing directories the proper permissions?

comment In bash 4.3.27 “su” ignores user variables when combining “-” with “-c command”?
The fact that sudo is preferred is irrelavent. The OP is asking why the su binary on his system changed behaviors after patching bash. His config was working, only bash changed. Your answer and these comments are not related to the question being asked.

comment MobaXterm deleting characters when I hold the left arrow on the command line
It sounds to me like your TERM is not getting properly set or something. What do you see if you echo $TERM. Hopefully something like linux, or xterm?
