comment How do I move files from a disk image using Terminal.
Isn't a disk image a read-only file system? Why are you trying to move content out of it? Try copying instead.

comment Installation Step Failed (installing the system) - Kali Linux
"Jun 10 16:20:13 main-menu[714]: (process:8928): tar: write error: No space left on device" Is the disk image you provided for the VM big enough?

comment Installing Linux with USB on Mac
Step 3 says "Note: OS X tends to put the .dmg ending on the output file automatically.", so if you wrote target.img then the extra suffix looks like expected behaviour.

comment How can I create a local function in my bashrc?
This won't work if do_stuff is used inside another function. When you call that function, you will get bash: do_stuff: command not found. I know this isn't the exact case the op was talking about but it's worth pointing out.

comment Restricting access to just CVS and Git commands
@Gilles Actually, I have been reading "Git on the Server - Setting Up the Server" and it is suggesting using a single user (called git) for all users. So my concerns about using a single account are still there.

comment Restricting access to just CVS and Git commands
Oh, I guess I misunderstood then. Two accounts for each person would be very annoying for everyone involved. I guess I also don't understand what is meant by "You typically see things like git@gitserver.com as the frontend user when interacting with the repo." I interpreted that line as one account used by all.

comment Restricting access to just CVS and Git commands
cvs uses OS user names to identify committers and so I would never have thought of using a single account for git. It's an interesting idea. Is that seen as good practise? The idea of using a single account for multiple people makes me wary.

comment FedUp, unable to upgrade to Fedora 20
"it seems to do an upgrade to the same version 20 instead." The downloaded files are stored in /var/tmp/system-upgrade and it won't download the F19 ones unless you delete the existing files.
