comment What does “WHIRLPOOL size ;-)” mean?
@Alexander I have to agree with jpa. Even getting two files with different content, but the same md5 hash, is exceedingly unlikely. This would normally require an engineered attempt of some sort. Having "hundreds of false matches", is simply inconceivable. Add to that, that in the case above, portage has already checked three separate hashes, and the use of the size check gets even smaller.

comment Overflow /tmp mounted when there is free space on /
And what happens next time the system boots without enough disc-space once you've instructed it not to create a tmpfs? I think your advice is dangerous and incorrect for the vast majority of users/cases.

comment How do I layer compression on top of encryption on top of BtrFS, per-file?
I think I'm similarly confused as Celada. If we for a moment ignore the attempt at vertical likeness, are we in agreement that compression must happen first, follow by encryption? One can't meaningfully compress encrypted data, since, as you point out in the question, it's indistinguishable from random data.

Ok, I've re-titled the original question so it more specifically fits with the answer. That way I can ask a separate question the trustdb. Thanks for the help. :)

comment How to import secret gpg key (copied from one machine to another)?
@Celeda, thanks, with --edit-key and and the trust command I managed to get the key trusted. Since my original question was how to copy the key from one machine to another, I think it would be appropriate to add something about that to your answer. I'd prefer not to edit your answer myself, and you seem to know a lot more than me about this.

Any chance you'd also know why gpg2 -e -r [ID] says "There is no assurance this key belongs to the named user"? I wish I had included it in the original question, but I noticed it only later.

comment Start a service on a network request (socket activation)
@CameronNemo If it was my application, or if I had access to the source, that would be an option. Currently however, it is not. :)
