comment Can I list the filesystems a running kernel can support?
@BruceEdiger: /proc/filesystems only shows the filesystems that the kernel has loaded -- until you insert those modules into the kernel (which usually happens automatically when you need them), the kernel cannot support those filesystems.

nodev indicates that the filesystem in question is not a physical filesystem that needs a block device to live on, but rather a virtual filesystem that is backed by something other than a block device.

comment How to chmod without /usr/bin/chmod?
On x86 (32-bit) Linux, the dynamic linker must be at exactly the path /lib/ld-linux.so.2, on x86-64 (64-bit) Linux, the dynamic linker must be at exactly the path /lib64/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2. Both of these are normally symlinks to the correct file, but that exact path is required to be present.

comment pkill can't kill processes with parent process id 1
Does pgrep "run_tcp_sender.sh" return the list of processes you want to kill, or does it just return an empty list because the processes are all listed as bash run_tcp_sender.sh ...?

comment Installing gcc without root?
Unfortunately for this use case, bootstrapping Gentoo Prefix requires that the host already have a compiler installed.

comment How can I make bash not match `.` and `..` with `.*`
That will miss files named like ..install.cmd (A real file I've seen in the wild).

comment Automount cdrom when accessed via NFS
Unfortunately, ISO images aren't physical CDs -- and the goal here is that the end user can insert a physical CD into the machine and have it appear on a different machine (I didn't write most of the code involved on the other machine, and there's a third machine that expects "ssh machine2 mount /media/cdrom" to do exactly what it needs -- I cannot change anything about that third machine). The only machine that has a physical CD drive in this system is the first machine.
