Bash globs as non-file arguments. Example: apt-get remove pkg-*view story

http://unix.stackexchange.com – I know * and other glob patterns are transformed into words by pathname expansion, based on the current working directory. Hovever, some commands seem to use them for non file arguments. For example, I use dpkg -l pkg-* to list the packages with pkg-. I thought programs could not see their arguments before expansion, only after. Is this not the case? (HowTos)

Installed Ubuntu 14.10 on MacBook Pro (5,5) without rEFIt or rEFInd, hangs on purple screenview story

http://askubuntu.com – I recently inherited a mid 2009 13" MacBook Pro. I wanted to install Ubuntu 14.10 on the machine rather than OS X. I've previously had success with Ubuntu 13.10 on a 2006 MacBook by booting to live USB and installing over the current OS, so I tried this method again with admittedly limited research. While installing 64-bit Ubuntu 14.10 on the MacBook Pro 2009, everything seemed to go fine. (HowTos)
