comment cuda - gzip: stdin: invalid compressed data--format violated
You have not posted df for /tmp AND I'd suggest redownloading from another source AND veryifying the checksum of the download. Failing that, maybe a quick note to the provider of the package for assistance.

comment badblocks only takes 32-bit integer as start/end values
Is the badblocks application a 32- or 64- bit application? Yes there are some cases where common 32-bit applications live and work on a 64-bit system.

comment badblocks only takes 32-bit integer as start/end values
Please indicate the OS, distribution, version number AND if the OS is a 32- or 64- bit OS. The limitation you have might be due to the "bitedness" of the OS you are using.

comment MySQL max_open_files more than 1024
Have you restarted mySql since making the limits change? These things generally do not simply propogate from a file change, the process usually has to be restarted to pick up the change. Also you can verify the limits using the ulimit command. Have you rebooted since the change?

comment Pattern replacement
First you have looked at the man page for sed and realize that this will edit the file (i.e. change and replace it with the edited contents).
