I dont think EDID data is cached anywhere, but you can play with sudo ddccontrol -p to see if you can read it at any time over the i2c bus in a vga cable. See doc. Also, use xrandr to control your monitors. It should list which ports of your graphics card have something connected to them and allow you to play with their settings. By default, the Xorg ...

Linux drivers are kernel modules. This means they can be part of the big binary file that is the kernel (and therefore built-in), or loaded later after the kernel starts. The only drivers you really have to have built into the kernel are those to access the root filesystem. Even then, it's possible to have a useable system without such drivers if you ...

Your procedure is correct. Your terminology could use small detail work though. You want to declare the second,new disk to be a member of a new degraded RAID1 array. Then boot with a liveCD, dd the Data over, and then declare the first,older disk to be a mirror of the above array. Depending on how exactly GRUB locates the RootFS, you may need to edit your ...

Unlike certain other operating systems such as Windows, which builds a list of the hardware with its corresponding drivers that it will follow every boot, many Linux distributions will include kernel modules to support most hardware configurations to provide the ease of use that you seem to like. Doing that obviously makes the boot process longer as the ...

Forget about real mode, that's just a detail of the x86 architecture and it's just there for compatibility with 1980's processors. The processor indeed has a flag that indicates the current privilege level. The details of that flag vary between processor types but to keep things simple just think of it as two settings: user and kernel. There are processor ...

It may be too late already, but the first thing you should do when you notice hard drive failure, or data loss is to make an image of the failed hard drive using ddrescue. Playing around with fsck or parted has the potential to make things worse. That being said, if the data you've lost is mission-critical, you may want to call in a professional to help you ...
