comment What doesn't need defragmentation? Linux or the ext2 ext3 FS?
If you use ext4, then you will be surprised to see how much fragmentation you can have when you run e4defrag -v . in a directory tree, especially if it contains, say, files downloaded with a torrent client (though some do use fallocate/posix_fallocate).

comment Package Installation log creation
It's not really clear what kind of problem you are trying to solve. When you install a package in a dpkg-based system, it will already keep a log of what was done, with the result of each installation, uninstallation, or partial operation: /var/log/dpkg.log.

comment How to cause kernel panic with a single command?
A forkbomb does not necessarily causes a kernel panic. OTOH, one thing that may do that is to write (as root) is to, say, dd if=/dev/urandom of=/dev/mem (depending on your kernel version, you may not have /dev/kmem). But I wouldn't use the system after that. :)
