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. As always in these kinds of cases, I tend to believe that there is a beautiful "Unix way" to achieve this with a combination of some standard GNU command-line utilities. Am I right? (HowTos)

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)

They are also unaffected by changes made via NotifyOSD Configuration or manual editing of the notify file itself. Has anyone else encountered this problem... and if so is there a solution? Or am I simply extra lucky? (HowTos)
