comment How to sort big files?
What you describe - splitting sorting then merging and resorting is called a merge sort and it can be very fast because you can parallelise it.

comment Should I run fsck on boot for an amazon ec2 image?
If you really need to, run shutdown -rF now to force a check on boot. It can be handy when it's turned off otherwise.

comment How to fix speckled flash videos in Linux Mint 14?
Ok, so after some updates I have now found that it works properly in firefox with flash. But not chrome with flash. In chrome, the adverts that appear before the video starts playing properly display properly. As soon as the video starts they appear. If you pause the video the speckles are moving even though the video is paused.

Haven't had the time yet to test another distro. But what I've noticed is that youtube add's play fine. As soon as the actual video starts it shows the specs. I think this is a software issue.

Good idea. I might try that. I have my doubts though as it's actually using a software renderer.

comment Learning how to build my own linux kernel
You can also search for the options with slash followed by option_name inside make menuconfig! e.g. /CONFIG_XEN will tell you where this option is found.

comment How do I start the fan manually in Linux?
I don't think that's the case. For example, on my macbook pro the fan control spins up much much more even after a cold boot compared to windows and then later gets slowed down. After an update to linux it seems to run a little closer to the way windows does now. Definitely fan speed is software driven.
