comment What happened to `vga=ask` etc. in the newer Kernels?
@Patrick I do use the proprietary nvidia drivers! I remember it still kinda working, though. Could you link something more specific, or add an answer?

comment What happened to `vga=ask` etc. in the newer Kernels?
@Renan I have an nVidia GeForce 9600 iirc. It seems to not detect my dual monitor setup. Also, I've never got to have the framebuffer working in 1080p. Is there a way to force framebuffer mode?

comment Why brace expansion not supported?
@ChrisDown It kinda clearly says that in the man page: "If bash is invoked with the name sh, it tries to mimic the startup behavior of historical versions of sh as closely as possible, while conforming to the POSIX standard as well." linux.die.net/man/1/bash

@user43312 sorry, I didn't mean to. It was unclear, whether you're referring to something used inside a script or directly from the shell. Errors like this usually creep up in shell scripting, due to the different shells being used as interactive shell and as scripting interpreter.

Well, it doesn't do anything as of yet, and it's not switching into framebuffer mode at boot.

oookay... How do I do that? A Link to a Documentation, maybe?

I actually think it would: depending on the invocation, shells invoked as /bin/sh act as the historic sh (it's what the bash man page says anyway). Haven't checked ksh's man page, but I'm sure it'll behave accordingly.

comment How to associate a script at boot time to a specific run level?
Yes, although I can't guarantee it's gonna work without problems, just run a few tests, if you definitely decide on using rc.local I cannot tell you at which level rc.local runs, since my systems never use it. But finding out yourself is easy: runlevel > /root/level.txt

comment Using sed to delete everything between two words?
I'd simply use a small PCRE, with by replacing s/ONE.*TWO/ONE\nTWO/n something like this. make sure your Regexp matches around newlines! Here's an answer that'll probably solve your problem: stackoverflow.com/questions/8624283/…

askubuntu.com/questions/9853/… <-- that's probably relevant, to you. rc.local is actually ran by Upstart once in the boot process (I'm not exactly sure when, though).

@user1301428 I can't say that. It depends on what you want to do. if it is some server you're managing, probably not. If it's logging or "householding", probably yes. If it is something periodically happening, maybe crontab is the better solution. Identifying what's best for you, is yours to decide.
