Reset the user by moving everything in /home/faultyuser to a backup directory like this: mkdir /home/faultyuser/BACKUP mv /home/faultyuser/* /home/faultyuser/BACKUP mv /home/faultyuser/.* /home/faultyuser/BACKUP cp -v /etc/skel/.[a-z]* /home/faultyuser/ chown faultyuser:faultyuser /home/faultyuser/.* and try to login.

It simply declares a firmware file that may be required by the module. See its definition in module.h; the firmware is loaded by request_firmware(). The information provided via MODULE_FIRMWARE appears in the module information, as shown for example by modinfo.

I'm not sure that you can get all of this information from the ext4 driver, because it does not responsible for the disk sectors and other disk geometry, but block device layer sub-sytem in the Linux kernel. I don't see one way to get all information in which you are interesting, because as I see you are in teresting as in low-level stuff and also in high ...

The proprietary fglrx driver no longer supports your HD 3470, but the free software radeon driver supports it very well. You should be able to run any 3D software your card is physically capable of running with the radeon driver. To use the radeon driver, make sure all fglrx packages are uninstalled, and install xserver-xorg-video-radeon and ...

You need kernel level tracing to achieve that. There is a large number of tools available to do it with various levels of features, usability and stability including sysdig, ftrace, perf, dtrace4linux, ktap, systemtap and others. You might start with tpoint which, being based on ftrace, shouldn't need anything to be installed (outside the script itself), ...

Your question is unclear. If you want raw disk I/O profiling (then file system is irrelevant, and you want also to measure swap disk IO) you might have to configure or patch the kernel (I don't know how). Perhaps running Linux thru an hypervisor (like xen) might help. Look also into oprofile On the other hand, if you are interested by file system activity, ...

The reason for this is that the Ironlake graphics architecture is not ivy bridge or sandy bridge It's Clarkdale/Arrendale gen technology which, while the hardware strictly speaking supports the extensions, does not have these features implemented in the relevant graphics drivers. You could take a stab at adding them yourself if you have experience with ...
