I'm a Computer Science student at the Scuola Superiore of the University of Udine. I've been interested in Computer Science since my third high-school year, and thus I've decided to apply to join one of the Schools of Excellence, and succeeded in this task.

Yes, but I have to connect through an Ethernet cable and not wifi.

Uhm. So I should test ifconfig's output and when the IP changes I should kill the browser and restart it?

@jippie I've added some more information at the bottom of the question. As I say there, it's definitely not ssh dropping the connection. I'm wondering if it could be a dynamic IP issue. Maybe the computer's IP get reassigned and thus ssh connections drop(but I thought IP would not change if the computer does not at least reboot...)

On a side note, during this weekend I tested that ssh works from home, but after some hours the connection was lost.

@jippie I tried now but it does not seem to work, it returns the same output when having internet access and when not having it. Maybe the DNS lookup is cached? If so how to clear the cache?

comment Remove /var partition and replace it with /var into / (root) partition
I strongly doubt this works. At least reading @rozcietrzewiacz's answer I believe this will break your system.

Alas, I tried this before reading. I can confirm that it happens exactly what @dubiousjim said. If you reboot then the system boots, but you can not login into the GUI. When logging in into tty1 you get some errors about stuff from /etc that can't create directories in /var.

comment Remove /var partition and replace it with /var into / (root) partition
I don't have any line that starts with /dev/sd* but I have a line that starts with UUID=5ebc2009-3089-4f5b-ac93-d8d4738913b3 /var ext4 defaults which I believe refers to the /var partition. So I simply remove this without modifying anything else?

Could you explain how to correct /etc/fstab?

Never had a similar problem, even though I never used TeXMaker.
