comment Host process for multiple processes?
Probably depends on the number of them... and how similar they are. If what differs is (e.g., crude sketch follows) the port and ServerRoot, this could be encoded in the symlinks, i.e. /sv/lighttpd_var-www_80 -> /etc/sv/lighttpd, where the latter inspects its $0 and sets appropriate command line parameters.

Are you using some distribution? Debian, for example, has expect for armhf and armel architectures; a *.deb file can be handled as a tgz archive.

comment aptitude remove pkg_name* not working like apt-get
Using aptitude manually, I sometimes press M on a category, marking all packages under this category as "installed automatically" (i.e. a dependency of something) – this selects packages not a dependency of anything for deletion (and most probably is not the best way to do this; note that Ctrl+t lets you "cancel pending actions")

comment aptitude remove pkg_name* not working like apt-get
Aptitude has many search terms, maybe these help you (they probably solve the libqt* issue, e.g. ?name(libqt*))

About your PS: No, the man page explains "Purge package" as remove it and all its associated configuration and data files.

What raises this error? If it is supervisorctl, is supervisord already running?

comment explain the command `printf — “#!${opt_E}”`
Note that ! is reinterpreted by Bash, so try using dash or some other shell that doesn't do history expansion.

comment Upgrading the kernel in Redhat Linux 6.0
Way to go: apropos kernel probably mentions uname (2). man uname shows you that uname -rv gives you the running kernel's release and version.
