comment Linux -> linux remote X login/desktop
X2go. It is safe enough to simply have a local system service that fires up an Xserver with X2go as it's only running program. If the local client is a stupid terminal without a hard drive and especially without critical data there is nothing wrong with such an approach

revised Print console colors
Putting a line break after every eigth example makes for a much nicer reading of the output, which can be considered substantion in code that is supposed to showcase examples.

You can try to install on only one HDD and see if at least one of them works.

comment Display screen caption on the first line of the terminal
Depends on what you want. If you just want the title off the current session in your screen caption then you would screen -X caption always; screen -X caption string "%t". If you want the current title in the upper left corner you would have to modify your PS1 environment variable to invlude the tput magic.

comment Loading a custom library
I concur that this is a duplicate question by the same user. Simply loading libraries with no clear goal does bear security risks. The (weak) use case given in the duplicate post has been addressed properly, but the author seems unsatisfied. "make[ing] the kernel load a library that [someone] made when it first boots up" bears security risks and warrants abuse. In my oppinion we are looking at a SE user who is up to no good.

comment Display screen caption on the first line of the terminal
I'm sure about every shell has a way of emitting these characters, but I only know bash :-) Thanks for the tput input, I didn't know about that.

comment How to install a specific video driver on Fedora?
As Fedora 17 is the most recent I'm sure it has a compatible video driver for Intel graphics. However there are many sources for failure and some are addressed here askubuntu.com/questions/57236/… . Maybe you can find your solution there.

comment Can Linux support Mirror Bootable Disk with LVM like IBM-AIX/HP/Solaris UNIX?
Grub2 can handle LVM only after it has loaded the respective modules which tend to reside on a filesystem on a partition on a harddrive. Your ignorant view on hard disks works exactly for raid1 and will not work for raid10 and will not work if the LVM volume does not start at exactly the partition/harddrive boundaries. A lot of assumptions there ...

comment How to change environment variables without re-logging to UI?
Use IPC to transport the actual information, not to change the environment. IPC is not a/the problem. Recursively changing environments of arbitrary processes/programs is the bad idea. You need a more clearly defined problem and a solution to that one problem. Using the big hammer on this problem is more likely to break your UI than to do something useful.
