comment Compare two files, while overriding second file's size
The error messages indicate that you have a bad SATA cable and can't access the drive correctly, not that there is a size mismatch.

comment Copying my Ubuntu vmware workstation virtual machine (desktop) to my laptop as a physical machine - How to get it boot
@Willi, that is saying it can't find your swap partition.. system should still boot without it.

Oops, I forgot about /run... that list of bind mounts keeps getting longer each release. I don't think those warnings stopped it from working though.

comment No dpkg or apt, no make or gcc. Need to install them all
Then it's not debian. Install something that you know what it is. We can't answer questions about total unknowns.

A minimal debian system has dpkg and apt already. If it doesn't, then it isn't debian.

@Willi, ahh, I forgot the part about updating the UUIDs in /etc/fstab that cas included in his answer ( I usually use LVM names instead of UUIDs ).

comment how to delete larger file (e.g., 180G) in unix system?
What filesystem are you using? ext3 has a known issue where it takes a long time to delete large files. This is resolved in ext4.

comment Network related services do not start correctly after using a systemd based networking
No, since nobody knows how many interfaces your machine might have, now, and in the future ( you can plug in more ).

comment Network related services do not start correctly after using a systemd based networking
What I mean is that network-online.target inherently can not be used to decide if "all networking is up" and so if you need eth0 to be up, you need to depend on something like sys-subsystem-net-devices-eth0.device.

comment Kernel Panic after repartitioning disk with gparted
Mount your filesystems from a livecd and see if they are intact. Either your root fs got corrupted, or it is no longer assigned the same partition number, and you have grub configured to refer to it by partition number, rather than by uuid.

comment Network related services do not start correctly after using a systemd based networking
What are the Wants and After rules for network-online.target? Normally they wait for NetworkManager-wait-online.service to wait for networking to be up, and even this usually fails to wait the proper time since nm considers the network to be up as long as there are no interfaces that have a carrier detected and are still waiting for dhcp, so interfaces that have not yet detected a carrier just causes it to assume they are not plugged in and declare networking to be up. If you have a service that requires a specific interface to be up, then it needs to depend on that specific interface.

comment Running thinkfan on Debian
Because the error message indicates that /proc/acpi/ibm/thermal is missing and that should be provided by that module.

You don't have the thinkpad_acpi kernel module loaded. Add the module to /etc/modules.

comment How can an ISO file be written (copied) to a disc as a single file using wodim?
@FrugalRasin, you generally don't want to write an ext4 filesystem to a cdrom. While linux has no problem with any fs on a cdrom, most other operating systems will only recognize iso9660 or udf on cdroms.

comment How can an ISO file be written (copied) to a disc as a single file using wodim?
@FrugalRasin, yes. and you do that by generating another iso image that only contains the first iso image.
