revised How can I tell what command an alias stands for?
Trivially generalised title and tags, as there is nothing particularly interesting about the "ll" alias.

comment How do I disable waiting for wpa_supplicant lease at boot?
Vague. What OS? Are you using a network manager? Which? Are you booting with systemd or sysvinit?

comment How do I use inotify or named pipes over SSHFS?
@JanusTroelsen I haven't heard of gamin. According to its overview page, it uses inotify too. Is it useful for distributing such updates over a network?

comment “Xterm” or “xterm” in configuration file
This page suggests that the client class part (XTerm in your case) is case-sensitive. I don't know how Xresources works, but some speculation: Maybe you're running different versions of xterm between your boxes somehow? (Post xterm -version?) Maybe different distros call the xterm program different class names? (I don't know how to check for this.

comment GIF screencasting; the UNIX way
It seems closed-source, shareware, and unscriptable, though much cleaner than any GUI alternative I've seen! Does it work on distros other than Debian? (I only see .deb packages mentioned in the purchase popup.) Can it capture fullscreen on small screens despite the capture window's border?

comment In a Makefile, how can I begin processing a file before it has finished building?
@lcd047 How? Are you recommending to simply remove the data dependency from processed-data and run make -j2 data processed-data? Wouldn't that create a race condition where processed-data can fail if the data isn't present yet?

comment In a Makefile, how can I begin processing a file before it has finished building?
① As mentioned, "data has its own recipe, because various other targets process it too." Sorry if that was unclear. How would several iterations of tee help? ② The other processing steps might also require other files. All they have in common is that they require the data.

comment In a Makefile, how can I begin processing a file before it has finished building?
If I've correctly understood, that way, data-processing-program gets the data streamed, but all other recipes dependent on data still have to wait until it's done. (Even worse, they now have to wait until both data and the processed-data are finished.)

comment Desktop Fails with “Oh no! Something has gone wrong.”
Sounds like a bug. Report it? (As a temporary workaround, try a plain window manager like twm.)

revised Why does gzipping a file on stdin yield a smaller output than the same file given as an argument?
More descriptive title. Condensed body text.
