comment How to set up control for case fans in Debian Wheezy?
Technically sensors-detect is not part of fancontrol, I think. i'm sorry, I don't know what else Ubuntu may be using. There is a program called sensors, but I don't know where it belongs to nor what it can do.

comment What are the absolute minimal requirements to boot a linux system
That greatly depends on what you want to do with it and what you think "a linux system" is.

Boot into Ubuntu, open a shell and, when after Ubuntu has regulated your fan speeds, look at the process list (man ps) and see if fancontrol is running. If it is, lsof may tell you where the configurations are at. Also try running sudo sensors-detect in that shell and see if Ubuntu finds your fans. As 12.04 is a long term release I guess they'll be backporting drivers into its kernel.

I am very sure Ubuntu uses fan control as well. You could just copy the configuration file. Ubuntu uses a much more recent kernel than Debian, maybe the default Debian kernel simply doesn't have the drivers and if you upgraded to a more recent kernel fancontrol might just start working for you.

I suppose I won't be using which anymore. Served me well for a very long time. Never ever used anything but bourne shells through ...

comment benchmarking ftp in 3 methods of virtualization
On topic: In general, paravirtualization should always be faster than full virtualization, especially when the VMs are located on the same host. However, depending on the technology you use for storage, a container based system with NAS, maybe even FC, can outperform paravirtualized systems that share the same harddrive(-controller).

You do realize that the interpretation of that data would be the scientific contribution of your work and if you don't do it yourself you're technically a fraud and won't get a degree. People who would hand out Bachelor project like that read SE too, you know.

You dont' want rsync to do anything, you want portage, emerge in this case, to act differently. After all, you are running emerge --sync and not rsync, are you. I added more details to my answer to clarify the context.

You want more ebuilds in your portage tree than there ordinarily would be. That means you ADD something to the "normal" portage tree. It doesn't matter when or how the files were created
