comment LUKS partition automount fails at boot
Nope. Although man crypttab seems to imply that noearly is indeed appropriate in my case, it has no effect.

comment LUKS partition automount fails at boot
Where to? I'd need a place after the root partition is open but before the mount checker runs (or whatever displays the modal error at boot); could you please suggest one? Also it would be nice to understand why it fails to mount.

comment LUKS partition automount fails at boot
But it does open the sdb1 volume automatically, so it must be able to see the keyfile. It just doesn't mount the decrypted filesystem until I run mount -a in the repair console. (Or, for that matter, press S instead of M, complete the boot and run sudo mount -a in a regular terminal).

comment Access errors using VMWare Shared folders
Probably related: superuser.com/questions/888320 . Did you find any clues regarding your issue?

comment Is there a similar UNetbootin utility for a Toshiba External HDD?
Are you sure? I'm trying it right now and apparently unetbootin just ignores USB HDDs regardless of how they are formatted/partitioned.

comment Iptables - having trouble opening port 443
Wait, what? Just noticed that you're scanning from localhost (Nmap scan report for localhost). I.e. the loopback rule (-A INPUT -i lo -j ACCEPT) is the only one that matters in the iptables config. Are you sure anything listens on localhost:443?

comment sftp disabled, but have ssh access. How to mount?
Thanks for the -o sftp_server; I was consistently missing it in the docs until found here. :) Works for me in the dropbear + openssh-sftp-server combination.

comment Windows 7 process eating bandwith
Or use Sysinternals TcpView (live.sysinternals.com/Tcpview.exe) to see what process accesses that particular address.

comment Realtime sound post-processing, sound effects, Ubuntu 10.04
Thanks for the info! But, there seems to be no way to control parameters at run time. Maximum I appear to be able to achieve is to pre-configure some presets, loaded with different names, and switch between them using gnome-volume-control. Is there a better way?
