comment How to prevent /var/log/mail.log from inflating?
This helped me start sendmail, but the logs still are flowing at a huge rate (~ 10 each second). Perhaps I need to wait for the queue to be processed or restart the server. I still don't understand how to disable sendmail altogether.

comment sudo add-apt-repository - command not found (GParted Live CD)
@Momo - I don't remember anymore. I eventually found the OS disk, so I didn't need to solve this problem. For those who need it, this might help: gparted-forum.surf4.info/viewtopic.php?pid=29773#p29773

comment What determines the path where the system searches for a file?
Excellent. Any reference to hash you can refer me to for further reading? Googling for linux hash does't seem to point me the right way.

comment Command line linux alternative for Windirstat/SpaceMonger?
@MichaelMrozek - I vaguely remembered something like that. Now next time I'll be able to find one of these questions. Sorry for not looking too hard, I was in the "fire question away" mood.

True enough, I was actually using something similar but not quite like it. Thanks anyway for the great answer.

Actually I just did alias less='less -r'. Any reason not to?

comment Should the mysql user have access to /var/lib/mysql?
@dpacmittal, @Caleb, added some more details. If I'm reading this correctly then mysql is the owner of /var/lib/mysql, and it should have read rights to all its parents.

comment What is the difference between 'su -' and 'su root'?
@Caleb - I found that question before posting, but that did not answer my direct question. See the second part of @Mat's answer.

I edited your question to include history-search-forward (well, submitted an edit to the edit queue)

Thanks. I took option 1, and with the help of this old answer, realized that \e[B will bind the down arrow.

comment How to select/delete until end of file in vim/gvim?
Ugh, I'll never remember all these vim shortcuts. The Windows shortcuts are just so much more intuitive.

comment How can I use just one unified clipboard? (even for IntelliJ's “copy path”)
@Tshepang - one example is in gvim, if I select a text, do edit-->copy, then select another piece of text, then I effectively have two different pieces of text to paste. Middle click will paste the last text I selected, while edit->paste will paste the text I edit->copied.

comment How to copy text from vim to an external program?
For some reason it doesn't work. Just select with visual mode, copy with ctrl-shift-C, then paste in another app using Ctrl-shift-V ? The text doesn't get copied for me.

Quick followup - how do you set left to right again?
