  2. Re: Are there 32bit Linux versions still supported?

  3. Re: How I can Run Ubuntu and Wondows Simultaneously?

    If you are new to virtualization, use Virtualbox. It is by far the most user friendly and reliable solution. If you run Windows as Host OS, you need approx 2 GB of RAM for each Linux system you want...

  14. Re: Lost user data on zfs after reboot

    First of all, how did you create the ZFS Raid-1. Is it a separate datapool created after the installation? Is Ubuntu installed on ZFS and do you boot from ZFS. Do you know how many snapshots you...
