when using gnome-terminal, mousewheel scrolls normal, i.e. in scrollback.

+1. Using "xterm" instead of "rxvt" and "rxvt-unicode", Shift-PgUp/-PgDown work for me on gnome-terminal. But the mousewheel scrolls in the shell history.

How are the devices accessed from the OS? E.g. are they PCI cards?

comment How to list sample of files from a directory
@invert actually, sorting a list of hundred thousands of files is probably not such a good idea. Maybe use ls -f| tail -n 1000 instead of just ls for the answer in the link

@jw013 Your answer is really nice! I never took the effort to learn how arrays work in bash. Maybe I should.

@jw013 +1 Yes, that's definitely a concern. However, his posting let me assume that he was using photos directly imported from a digital camera, which do not contain any special characters. How would you suggest to tackle that problem?

You could use a pipe instead of a file. See man mknod

comment Safely uninstall a package in Gentoo
Does that mean that emerge --depclean removes all packages that were installed using emerge --oneshot (unless those packages are needed by a package from world)?

comment Makefile compiles unchanged files
@EmanuelBerg oh, I forgot that you don't compile into ../src/. See my updated answer; the .cpp.o rule format doesn't work in that case.
