comment How to change cursor shape, color, and blinkrate of Linux Console?
I was almost settling on something like that, but I'm quite sure I can accomplish what I want with something like a kernel option or whatever.

comment How to change cursor shape, color, and blinkrate of Linux Console?
@htor and how exactly? I use setterm to turn off the console beep, but how should I set cursor shapes? In fact, setterm was the first place I looked before finding the escape sequence.

comment Building MariaDB 5.5.27 without OQGraph: How to deselect the plugin?
As I said, I only need the client. However I have build many different databases myself, that's not the issue here. I just had problems using cmake.

comment tar: exclude gzip file, and don't try to gunzip it
I don't really understand you problem here, but it seems that inside that .tar.gz are other .gz files? If that's the case, then the archive is wrong to begin with. a .tar.gz file, is a gziped tar-file, which contains a collection of uncompressed files. Everything else is pretty much done by an idiot.

comment Open-Source Audio Playlist 'Standard'
Not true. ASX is an XML file, essentially, but you have to pay licenses if you plan to use it... I know, it kinda doesn't make sense, but that's Microsoft for you. From a legal standpoint, ASX is plain text (as basically all playlist formats are), but there is a proprietary license on them!
