I understand the crudity of my method, guboj, and thank you for explaining some of its serious disadvantages,

A stable system is a great idea, but an unstable system isn't a good tool for finding out how to stabilise it.
Maybe now that ubuntu is running smooth, I could search now for what it was, but I'd like to do something else with my computer sometimes apart from solve computer operation problems.
It's very tempting to just get some work done and forget about the endless tinkering and research
