comment Two questions about Linux
Questions on here require at least a minimum of merit on your side. You clearly made no effort to simply read a little on Wikipedia or simply using Google.

comment Two questions about Linux
All those questions can be answered easily by simply googling. unix.SE is not an oracle. An "old PC running Windows XP" can be no more ambiguous.

comment Failing to format flashdrive to UDF
Just as a side note, depending on the flash drive (SD cards), it is unwise to use anything but FAT (or exFAT). Using something else on SDXC makes them a lot slower, and throws off wear leveling considerably. It is also against spec. If you need a boot loader on there, I suggest SYSLINUX.

comment Do I need to install LIRC separately in Fedora 18?
With Fedora being at 20 right now, and Fedora 21 due in October, I'm not sure this question is of any significance anymore.

comment Which driver should I use for my GeForce4 MX 440 on Fedora 20?
Can I use one of the newer drivers with the old graphics card, perhaps? Nouveau seems to ne somewhat of a catch-all for old adapters...

comment Chromecast / Cubetek Ezcast with Linux computer?
It seems for my use case, this isn't what I need. Thanks for the input though.

comment How to know free disk size witout df command?
I don't quite understand what you mean by "direct command lines". Do you mean you have no shell and you need to access that data programmatically?

comment Is LILO still usable on modern PC?
For some reason, linking directly to syslinux.com seems to be forbidden.

comment Creating a Makefile
Please restate your question in a more sensible way: You converted from "sudo"? sudo is a shell command to get privileged access. I suggest you take your time stating your question more carefully!

comment How do I zip/unzip on the unix command line?
Just as a side note: zip can create many different flavors of .ZIP archives, as well as use many different compressors. On the other hand, there are a number of other compression tools named similarly: 7-Zip, gzip, bzip2, rzip, etc. which are not interchangeable.

comment How do I zip/unzip on the unix command line?
I should perhaps append this answer with atool, it's a nice little tool that makes using many different compressors more comfortable. Bind that to a and creating an archive becomes a arc.7z folder/ or extracting a simple a arc.7z

comment Gummi: Extend with Markdown functionality, or suggest Markdown editor
Qute and UberWriter seem to have a similar approach. MdCharm seems to be the better option. I was unaware, that it is actually open source, I glanced over the website, found a "buy" button, and this made me look elsewhere...

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