comment What does the search flag 'z' do in VIM?
Bah! Good call I definitely spaced on looking through the docs there. I was doing :help z (no colon).

You can also just copy over a kernel of the LiveCD you're using. I use sysrescuecd which has its kernel in /mnt/cdrom/isolinux/rescuecd (Been a while not entirely sure). Don't forget to modify the boot manager with an entry that uses the new kernel.

In that case I suggest pulling a binary debian kernel first from portage with echo "sys-kernel/debian-sources binary" >> /etc/portage/package.use; emerge debian-sources. That command is for funtoo but should work on gentoo. If that works its probably something in your kernel configuration. funtoo.org/…

Do you "manually" build your kernel or do you use genkernel?

Like a lot of vim commands this also applies to the less command which I use when viewing files as opposed to editing.

comment Why a sleep 300 (5 minutes) can last several hours some time?
Don't know why the script might be off and that's an interesting question by itself. However, if you're trying to schedule a script to run on an interval you should use osx's launchd. nathangrigg.net/2012/07/schedule-jobs-using-launchd

comment Why should I build a custom kernel?
One reason is to disable builtin's and modules that you don't need to speed up boot time and space (not as much an issue)

comment Simplified navigation in terminal
I too avoid IDEs as much as possible! But they do have such nice features. If you use vim you need to checkout the Command T plugin which is great for java projects because it allows you to sloppy search for a file underneath the current dir to open it which is great for java with its nested folders. You also should consider using pushd/popd for dir navigation. eriwen.com/bash/pushd-and-popd Good luck!
