comment How to rsync only new files
Man pages suck (that's right I went there), case in point, does --ignore-existing mean don't transfer files which exist on receiver, or don't transfer files if some file/folder with the same name exists on the receiver?

comment What is the purpose of the lost+found folder in Linux and Unix?
I think it also appears if you format your HDD (I switched from NTFS to ext4 and it appeared)

I just checked it again, and it works on 2 Ubuntu computers, but it doesn't work on raspbian even though nfs-common is installed.

comment How to forward X over SSH from Ubuntu machine?
+1 for making the distinction between ~/.ssh/config and /etc/ssh/sshd_config in the same place. I could not tell if they were different' files or just a change in nomenclature.

comment Does the mail command require a mail server?
@slm not really the same as that question hints that one needs an SMTP server to run mail, but I'm asking whether it is absolutely necessary

comment Determine which process is creating a file
From my understanding, LoggedFS and audit are like inotify in that they log the information. With something like vim's write feature, first foo.txt.swp is CREATED, then it is MOVED_TO foo.txt. This is logged (I use inotify), but the problem I now have is that when I am reviewing the logs, more often than not, I can no longer stat the foo.txt.swp file. This is creating a great deal of problems for me as the file may be deleted before the DELETE event is logged, so I try to get the file info and the OS complains the file no longer exists.

"If you need to watch a particular file and react when it is accessed, you need different tools." can you give an example?

comment suphp directory not owned by user
As far as I can tell this is a design choice. I think it's stupid to have though. The single document root, along with no symlinks should make this unnecessary lists.marsching.com/pipermail/suphp/2008-April/001831.html
