[Linux] Make HDDs spin down to safe power

I just read that, it is also that expensive because it automatically subscribes you to a 'concierge service'. Basically that means you can press a button and get someone (many languages supported) to order a pizza for you, no matter where you are or if you speak the local language. And of course, it...

The error message is AddScreen/ScreenInit failed for driver 0 - which would point out to a wrong driver or the likes. [Solution] After i tried pretty much everything else and even wrote an xor...

Sounds even more interesting! Good that you did not choose the easy way (reinstall), but rather do it the hard way, and thus, give us a lot of information on topics we did not touch yet :)

[Linux] "x% reserved for the super user"

When using mkfs, it per default reserves 5% of the total blocknumber of the mass storage device for root. Sometimes you dont want it to do that, and reading the manpage (...
