    RE: How To Install/Upgrade To Linux Kernel 3.18.1 stable In Ubuntu/Linux Mint
    These teaser posts do no community service as the value of the information disappears if or when the linked site goes down. If someone asks a question you can link to the other site for more information, but doing unsolicited link posts is not welcome in any part of the forum or site. As I stated in the other post, if you want your articles on this site then use the blogging feature and make them complete. This and your other post will be deleted within the next few hours only to allow enough time for you to see my replies. This is non-negotiable as you are in fact making it harder for people to find your original article by spamming other sites, lowering your search engine position and making the users just through links to find the source.

    RE: Linux on Chromebook
    It sounds like you are running it from the installation medium rather than completing the installation. Can you confirm if you had indeed completed the installation process?

    RE: Arch Linux in Virtual Box
    By default, Arch does not setup user accounts. The user must set them themselves and I advise against using videos as tutorial for potentially complicated actions. The wiki provides more than enough information to complete your required action. Last weekend, I performed successful installations of Arch 32-bit and 64-bit in virtualbox using the instructions on the wiki (https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/installation_guide) and had no issues. It looks like you missed the step in the wiki installation page labeled "Mount the partitions". If you in fact pre-mounted them under /mnt before running genfstab then, they should be picked up. If the genfstab did not work correctly, then it is easy enough to correct the mount points during installation by manually modifying the fstab file.

    RE: Dual Booting
    As far as I know the wubi installer no longer exists, so you will need to shrink some of the partitions on your system to make room for ubuntu to be installed. Lead at least 50GB of unallocated disk space for ubuntu. Once you have space, you can boot from an installation usb of disk image and install in the free space, thee bootloader should automatically load itself for dual booting.
