comment cpu temperature is higher than usual after installing xubuntu
What made you think it's the missing driver? Do you see any process that continuously consume 100% cpu (using top or ps)?

comment Why doesn't this simple piping with awk work?
On further investigation it seems like awk is doing some sort of buffering - awk is not buffering anything. It's the pipe which populates STDIN of the right hand side command only when the left hand side commad has finished executing. And this is not a problem. This is how it's supposed to be. I do not see a point in the whole thing you did.

comment Can't find the location of DUMPed file system
I am glad to hear that. The reason "locate" could not find this file is because, locate keeps a cache/index of all files in the system. But it relies on cron to trigger this at a specified frequency. Find on the other hand checks the directory entries to search for files/dirs.

comment recover corrupted directory from ext3 partition
You are not doing it correctly. From inside of debugfs you cannot cd into a directory as debugfs sees that as a file with directory entry. Once you are inside debugfs, just run rdump ostani /destination/dir/. All of the contents, along with ostani directory will be restored as it is recursive in nature.

Yes, of course. Test it for yourself :)

comment Determining cause of Linux kernel panic
I would second the "Overclock is culprit" thought. MCE mostly occurs due to hardware issues. But, a segmentation fault in any module code can cause the same too. Two years back, my new i7 2600k was giving me the same MCE issue, even when I was not doing anything on the computer. When I dug a little deeper, I found the BIOS version I was using with my Intel motherboard was not properly supporting the then new processor. I updated the BIOS and the problem was gone. So I will suggest you to check on that route too.

By default mget runs in interactive mode i.e it will ask you if it is fine to copy over xyz file/dir and you have to respond with either y or n. To turn this feature off, prompt command needs to be executed. It toggles the Interactive Mode of FTP client.
