@jasonwryan I don't think its a duplicate. That is a more generic question. I already know how to do color customization but am getting strange output. A debugging question, if you will.

comment Where do uncaught local emails go?
configure the underlying mail server to keep a copy of any bounces is what I'm after. But I think that one deserves a questions of its own. This one is answered.

As the admin should I be logging into the accounts of every user to see bounced emails? How do I get them redirected to my account?

That answers my first question. Second was - How do I see a list of such mails? Is it possible to configure postfix to direct all such mails to a given account?

What destination server? This is local email, from one unix account to another.

comment What does sudo su work but su does not?
Isn't that a security loophole? Since any user in sudoers list can elevate to root what is the purpose of having a su account with scrambled password? Why doesn't setup just put the same password for su and kshitiz?

comment How to run linux on PS3?
Yeah. As it turns out a GPU of equivalent price as a PS3 can offer 1400 processing cores at 900MHz each. So PS cluster seems to be a thing of the past.

@SlimJim As it turns out CUDA is a much better option and could even give more bang for bucks. You should make that into an answer.

comment How to run linux on PS3?
@SlimJim Yeah. I've also found that it has 256M of RAM out of which a good portion would get taken by Linux. I like your suggestion on CUDA, would check it out.

comment How to adjust brightness in Fedora 17 on Sony Vaio
@Sigur You can put that command in a startup script. That way the command will automatically run every time you start the system.

@Sigur What does it say when you try to change the value? You need to issue that command as root user. Type su at the terminal and enter the root password.
