comment Damaged partition table in dual boot system
Surprised there's no sdb4, and is the ID of 60 something you set? I'm not finding much regarding what that's supposed to be. Theoretically, if you can re-do the partition table to where they actually are, it should be salvageable. What actions were included in "Since this morning grub fails..."? Literally you turned it on and it functioned differently from the previous day? Would make me think it could be related to a package update?

comment Partition created with Minitool Partition Wizard or Linux not recognized by Windows 7 and vice/versa
Thanks, Rod. Yes, I'm thinking this might be the case as well. For some reason, they can agree on the size of the partitions... but not the format. I can't help but wonder if the header or something else about the partition is just slightly "shifted." Is that possible? Tried Easeus and Paragon... Easeus agrees with Minitool and Paragon agrees with Windows disk util. So far, no bridge between then. I wondered if a way to have a second partition table for each OS somehow, or manually specify some mount option to get Linux to successfully see it. I mean it's there, just not recognized, right?

comment Is it possible to use ffmpeg to trim off X seconds from the beginning of a video with an unspecified length?
I was having this issue as well. This post did it for me. I bit the bullet and stopped trying to use -vcodec copy -acodec copy for all my editing commands. Re-encoding prevented the black frames from the beginning of my video or not cutting at the right spot (the difference of a second without re-encoding was translating to almost a 5 second difference in the video). So, I ended up replacing -vcodec copy with -vcodec libx264 -crf 0.

comment Prompted for password twice at linux boot login
This was, indeed, the problem. I cross-posted here and in the Arch forums; another explanation can be found there. An Arch update removed some items in /etc/pam.d/login and put them in /etc/pam.d/system-login which was called by /etc/pam.d/system-local-login. Since I incorrectly merged my existing login with the update pushed by Arch, pam_unix.so was indeed being called twice, hence two login prompts.

comment Can the Windows 7 system reserved partition be deleted without problems?
This seems to directly conflict with what appears to be a duplicate superuser question unless I'm missing something. In other words, it is possible. The OP didn't mention bitlocker, so I'm not sure if it would be relevant here.

comment /sys/class/power_supply files become zero until reboot to OS X and back to Linux
@RandolphWest: Perhaps... but it's "reset" or fixed somehow by booting into OS X. If it was a bad piece of hardware, I wouldn't expect a particular OS to fix it somehow.
