comment Will purging GNOME remove gedit?
If you want to clarify your problem, please edit your post instead of adding a comment. Michael did a lot of editing to your post. Does it describe your problem now and does it include the question you wanted to ask?

comment Will purging GNOME remove gedit?
1. You need to ask a question, if you expect answers. 2. Just try it out, apt-get tells you which packages would be removed and asks for confirmation before uninstalling anything. 3. What packages get removed depends on how they were installed, i.e. pulled in as dependency, recommendation or explicitly. Hence you cannot tell for all Debian installations what would happen if you purged Gnome

comment Disabling graphical login in Debian wheezy
A quick ls /etc/rc2.d/ would provide proof. I'm sure you have no idea what packages you never wanted have been installed. You're using Debian, not Gentoo. :-)

comment How to install video driver in Debian?
Which driver are you using? Does that driver even have OpenGL support? How do you know this driver doesn't have OpenGL support?

comment Is there any way to disable shutdowning remote machine?
@mattdm: That warning does work for sudo init 0 run from a root shell just as well. Running sudo from within a root shell would be new to me, but legitimate as sudo can do/does more than just elevate rights.

It addresses the problem in that it keeps him from accidently shutting down the remote machine, but offers him an easy way to still do it when he wants. Apparently his own approach was to replace sudo with a warning message. And if he has a lot of use for elevated privileges I'd recommend a root shell anyways.

comment How to set up control for case fans in Debian Wheezy?
Technically sensors-detect is not part of fancontrol, I think. i'm sorry, I don't know what else Ubuntu may be using. There is a program called sensors, but I don't know where it belongs to nor what it can do.

That greatly depends on what you want to do with it and what you think "a linux system" is.

comment How to set up control for case fans in Debian Wheezy?
Boot into Ubuntu, open a shell and, when after Ubuntu has regulated your fan speeds, look at the process list (man ps) and see if fancontrol is running. If it is, lsof may tell you where the configurations are at. Also try running sudo sensors-detect in that shell and see if Ubuntu finds your fans. As 12.04 is a long term release I guess they'll be backporting drivers into its kernel.

I am very sure Ubuntu uses fan control as well. You could just copy the configuration file. Ubuntu uses a much more recent kernel than Debian, maybe the default Debian kernel simply doesn't have the drivers and if you upgraded to a more recent kernel fancontrol might just start working for you.

comment benchmarking ftp in 3 methods of virtualization
On topic: In general, paravirtualization should always be faster than full virtualization, especially when the VMs are located on the same host. However, depending on the technology you use for storage, a container based system with NAS, maybe even FC, can outperform paravirtualized systems that share the same harddrive(-controller).
