comment Free webcam software for laptop (Dell 15R N5110)
@Nalaka526 Yup, the webcam should work fine with the generic drivers from Microsoft. Can you access the webcam with any other software, such as vlc or skype?

comment American HTTP Proxy For testing Application
@Besi Yes, the quality of proxies tends not to be good since they're mostly offered by volunteers without access to high-bandwidth connections and/or good data centers. Setting up your own proxy as described should work fine though.

comment Ubuntu inside Windows 7 as a “virtual PC”?
@MonopolyMaven Here are detailed instructions. However, while it's possible to install Ubuntu on Virtual PC, I don't see why you would prefer VPC over VirtualBox or VMWare Workstation. On VB and VMWare, you can simply install Ubuntu without having to worry about any extra configuration.

Exactly what I was looking for. Thanks!

comment how can I share my phone internet at local network?
@Walkman If you can't stop sharing the network while you're sitting in front of the Mac, it's definitely a bug in OS X. Ask on apple.stackexchange.com why that's the case.

comment how can I share my phone internet at local network?
@Walkman If I'm reading these tables right (Is that the output of route or ip route?), the dropped route to 192.168.1.2 should have no effect, but is also not necessary for connection sharing. You may want to contact the experts over at apple.stackexchange.com .

comment how can I share my phone internet at local network?
@Walkman Are you configuring your Ubuntu machine via ssh from the Mac? If so, that's a pretty important detail you should have included in the question. What is the Mac's routing table before/after you enable internet sharing?

comment how can I share my phone internet at local network?
@KissGyörgy First, keep your calm and don't panic. Disabling the internet sharing and running ifdown eth0 && ifup eth0 on the Ubuntu machine will restore the old state. Make sure you share the correct connection. Before you typed anything on the Ubuntu machine, could you still connect to the Mac, for example via ping?

comment Can't connect to router
@damluar If DHCP isn't working, it's seriously messed up. How did you find out that that's the case? If you watch the incoming packets with wireshark, do any Ethernet packets come in?

comment Linux Mint Randomly Locks Up
@Joseph Greenbaum If Ctrl+Alt+F1 Ctrl+Alt+F7 does fix your problem, it's almost certainly graphics-related. As I said, the most likely source is overheating, so make sure your graphics card's fan is clear of any obstructions.

comment understanding how filesystem type is determined before it is mounted
In response to the update: file just reads the file, it doesn't use any system calls except those you need to read the file.

comment understanding how filesystem type is determined before it is mounted
@Huang Tao If you want to know all filesystems your kernel can recognize, have a look at usr/include/magic.h in your kernel sources. Updated the answer to include that.

comment understanding how filesystem type is determined before it is mounted
@Huang Tao With stat, you just get metainformation, not the actual file contents. file will call read to read part of the file. It depends on the kernel version and filesystem support, but file should recognize all common file systems. If the filesystems are experimental, your file magic database may predate their creation and signature definition. If the newest file cannot recognize it, it's probably an extremely experimental filesystem or random data.

@Huang Tao Well, then I'm afraid you have to dig deeper and parse the MBR. Have you tried copying the partition minus the first 512 bytes?

comment understanding how filesystem type is determined before it is mounted
@Huang Tao That's not a partition, but a disk. Specifying /dev/sdb1 (partition) instead of /dev/sdb (disk) should work.

comment understanding how filesystem type is determined before it is mounted
@Huang Tao Well, it works good enough to distinguish all the file systems supported by the kernel. Most good disk formats (file systems as well as files) include a precisely crafted header to make them differ from any other file type.

comment understanding how filesystem type is determined before it is mounted
@Huang Tao Sorry, I didn't read your question fully and therefore answered at the wrong level. Use the -s option (as in file -s /dev/sda1 ) to examine block devices.

comment How to configure network on VM Ubuntu server with host changing networks?
@Stewart Johnson Added detailed step-by-step guides. Are these explanations sufficient? The second variant (with a host-only network adapter) may be easier and will significantly especially Samba, but will add a virtual networking adapter to the host system.

@Stewart Johnson Yes, significantly. Added two paragraphs.
