comment Why there is no Linux Handbook?
I see your point but can't agree. Linux as kernel isn't sticked e.g. to X, nor X is sticked to Linux. Ubuntu how migrates to Mir instead of X and Wayland is in plans; OTOH there is no X in a WRT based router. So what will be present in such book except local and obsoleted descriptions?

comment Why there is no Linux Handbook?
Why do you think there is a "core"? Linux Documentation/ is just kernel documentation. It doesn't know anything on graphics environment, games, text editors, compiler, etc. And there is no "zombie repeat" if e.g. one distro uses KDE but another is based on XFCE. Either you chasing mirages or simply mistaking the needed docs type. There won't be kernel-only handbook, no need in it. Please determine carefully what you need or explain an exact search request.

comment Determine if a specific process is 32- or 64-Bit
I've tested your recipe and it failed. OpenSuSE 12.2, x86-64, kernel 3.4.63-2.44-default, /bin/bash. The /proc/$pid/maps lines for the binary and the first heap are written in 32-bit style, but all others are in 64-bit style. Likely they are printed using "%08x", but anyway this recipe shall be adjusted.

comment Why use superflous dash (-) to pass option flags to tar?
You've also missed an important step: before inventing GNU style options with "--", Posix.2 specified to use "-W" for the same goal and this was supported by several Unix flavors. GNU getopt allows them in parallel if add "W;" to its option string, but two-hyphen style is recommended which is easier to read.

comment Where is the cron timer
Neither standard Vixie cron nor most current analogs like anacron can this. But evolution doesn't stop and, e.g., systemd invents its own cron. Did you analyze it?

comment enable networking inside a freebsd jail
Also I'm wondering what you try to do with network setup on EC2 guest system. As far as I see from their usage, you can't simply assign an arbitrary IP to interface, because you shall use the addresses offered by the cloud provider. As the result, you will have 1) 127.0.0.1, 2) an IP which maps to external world (via transparent NAT) and 3) optionally, IP of an internal network. That's all and all other IPs won't be visible from outside even if you assign them to an interface. So all these plays with your IPs will fail. Why do you need jails instead of EC2 micro instances?

comment enable networking inside a freebsd jail
Of course, correct world remake and following boot are proof that the system is up to some date, but they are only prerequisite and not a warranty for correct usage. If the issue persists after remake, you should recheck what are you doing. I've tested creating a jail on 9.1 and it's exactly how I described - one see only limited IP set inside the jail, but automatically assigned without a need to configure it again from inside the jail.
