comment How do I start a server via ssh and have it run after I log out?
I should add, that stopping that service is a bit difficult with ps and killing the right PID. It might be a good idea to save that PID with echo $! > server.pid, so it's easier to stop a process just by using that PID.

comment Poor TTY resolution with nVidia driver
If you're using the proprietary nVidia driver, it can't do full framebuffer, etc. I had massive problems with that, and I still kinda struggle with it. If you ask for things I've asked in the past, you'll find my questions to the same topics.

comment PXE boot via off-site TFTP server
@lalalalalalalambda Well, the most interesting thing, is that you can boot from a server on the internet. It's what I use for a very sophisticated boot option. Even the menus are loaded from the server. So, no need for updating the USB pendrive...

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

comment Why brace expansion not supported?
@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.

comment What happened to `vga=ask` etc. in the newer Kernels?
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?

comment Why brace expansion not supported?
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.

We should as about what kind of shebank shell he used. /me suspects it's #!/bin/sh...

comment vim - better coloring so comments aren't in such hard-to-read dark blue?
+1 It is usually a question of color palette.

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/…

comment How to associate a script at boot time to a specific run level?
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).

comment How to associate a script at boot time to a specific run level?
@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.

comment Lightweight Linux to host VM
I'm not gonna vote this down, but distrowatch is "a website tracking itself", it's not gonna tell you which distro to use, or even which one is the most popular. Tiny Core Linux as host OS for VMs? Well, I use Tiny Core on very old laptops, but I wouldn't use that for things like VirtualBox...

comment How to associate a script at boot time to a specific run level?
@user1301428 well, that's almost a philosophical question. the *BSDs still adhere firmly to the "System", as they're more direct descendants of the UNIX from AT&T. Fedora still uses init-rc quite extensively, and I still make init scripts. Ubuntu tries to streamline the boot process, to make booting quicker, etc. hence, Upstart.

comment How to mount an OpenBSD hard disk image on Linux?
Thanks. Once I got the hint of "demuxing" a whole disk image, I worked from there.

comment How to enable OpenGL rendering on Fedora 18 with an Intel Corporation 82852/855GM?
I cannot conclude that I was hit by the bug. According to the bug tracker, the bug still exists, but in the mean time, the problem sorted itself out. Was probably some other, minor bug, they fixed.
