comment Is my SSD hard disk broken?
FYI, "SSD" is an abbreviation of "Solid State Disk", so "SSD disk" or even "SSD hard disk" do not make sense.

comment Control device labels in /dev
@churnd You can modify fstab to use UUID or labels, UUID=[uuid] and LABEL=[label] respectively. The UUID can be detected with blkid (run it as root). The label can be found with ls -l /dev/disk/by-label/

comment Ubuntu machine users logging into the same ssh session?
Ah well, byobu is provided with Ubuntu for managing screen profiles easier. I'm happy with mine, so I've no need for other profiles ^^

@b3n In that case, check ~/.ssh/authorized_keys

comment Ubuntu machine users logging into the same ssh session?
At first I've added multiuser on to ~/.screenrc but without it, it seems to work as well. If I type in one session, the other sees it too.

comment How to restore accidentlly deleted `/var` folder in Ubuntu installation?
@Lohoris: well, that's technically possible since /var/log could be a separate mount point. Updated answer with for a more likely situation.

comment How do I remove a file in Linux whose name looks like it's ONLY a hyphen, as in “-”
What rm version are you using (rm --version)? rm - works fine with GNU coreutils 8.5.

comment Installing Ubuntu on a dynamic disk
Wubi still uses a file on the windows partition. It's recommended to create a dedicated partition for Ubuntu.

comment Concatenating files from multiple subdirectories
find in the current directory (.) all files with type file and execute cat [current filename]. cat send the file contents to the standard output which is redirected to ../results.txt. Finally, \; closes the -exec option. It would be more logical if > ../results.txt would be placed behind \;, the shell does the redirection to the ../results.txt file, not find. You can confirm that by running set -x before in a bash shell (it might work for your shell too)

Could you add the error log from C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Apache2.2\logs\error.log? Have you restarted Apache after enabling PHP?

comment Change the search engine used by about:home in Firefox
That's the same thing as localStorage: sqlite3 webappstore.sqlite, query select * from webappsstore2 where scope='emoh.:moz-safe-about' and key='search-engine';. Changing the home page is a possibility, but I prefer this one.

comment I have downloaded a Firefox 5 tar.gz package under linux. How can I install it properly?
@Kit Ho: /usr/lib/firefox/plugins should be used by the package manager. /opt is for local packages which can be used across upgrades.

comment manipulate unknown database file
@omtinez: could you post the name of the file and program and the language (e.g. English) of it? I used xxd -r file > testfile to reconstruct the file from the hexdump (and verified the dump with xxd testfile), but unfortunately file testfile still says "data". Not really useful.

comment Ubuntu: default access mode (permissions) for users home dir (/home/user)
AFAIK it's a standard thing of useradd, if it would be Ubuntu-specific, it should have been mentioned in the manual page. A redhat manual page: linux.die.net/man/8/useradd
