How to select GRUB install deviceview story

http://askubuntu.com – I apologize in advance for asking a question I suspect is very, very simple. I just got a dedicated server running Ubuntu and I'm using SSH to access it. I ran sudo apt-get dist-upgrade and got the following error message: "The Grub boot loader was previously installed to a disk that is no longer present or whose normally unique indentifier was changed for some reason.

Why is there a maximum hardware limit of 2048 pixels with multiple monitorsview story

http://askubuntu.com – As seen in the image, trying to have the 2 displays side by side creates this problem. There is a 2048x2048 box limit. My question is, what creates this limit and why. What would happen if I try with 3 displays or with 2 huge ones. Even better, what would happened if I tried a single monitor at resolutions of 2560x1600 or 2560x2048. I see that it says "Hardware Limit". (HowTos)

How do I create a structured list of all the files and directories under a particular directory (recursively)?view story

http://unix.stackexchange.com – I need to have an "image" of a file system without actual contents of the files - just all the names and the structure, so that I can read the file and know what files were stored there and how were they located.

Do I need to zero-fill a qcow2 image before compacting it?view story

http://serverfault.com – I want to recreate a dynamically allocated qcow2 image in order to shrink it. Is it sufficient that all unnecessary files have been deleted, or do I also need to fill the space formerly occupied by those files with zeros? In other words, is qemu-img filesystem-aware? (HowTos)

[kubuntu] KDE freezes after login (11.10, 64-bit)view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hello, This has been a problem for a while now, but it has deteriorated to the point where I can't ignore it any longer. When I log on to KDE the desktop would show but the system would hang for about 2 minutes. I can move the cursor and even open programs through shortcuts, but the screen does not refresh. I suspect it has something to do with the video driver. (Hardware)
