comment Distribute Linux system as ISO vs a set of files
@StephenKitt: right, I read about how bootup process looks on Rpi. But can you confirm that my thinking is correct - Rpi just knows what to do with these files, the same as EFI?

comment Distribute Linux system as ISO vs a set of files
@StephenKitt: On Raspberry Pi-style embedded systems, providing a bootable system typically means providing the contents of an SD card as you mention. - is this because Raspberry Pi's firmware just knows what to do with these files, i.e. it can load a kernel without using an extra bootloader saved to SD Card similarly to how EFI works these days?

comment Distribute Linux system as ISO vs a set of files
@StephenKitt: you probably didn't move to chat so I will ask this question here again: yous said that On PCs, it's commonly understood that to allow booting a single image on as many systems as possible, the best approach is a combined El Torito/EFI image - what do you mean by "EFI Image"? An (unnecessary) bootloader?

@mikeserv: Almost every single computer sold today comes with its own bootloader - really? Does it mean that BIOS/EFI could just run Linux w/o GRUB/(E)LILO?

comment Distribute Linux system as ISO vs a set of files
@mikeserv: This not me who uses ISO. Recently I built a new computer and had to install Linux on it (Slackware is my choice). I read up a bit on El Torito and how BIOS/EFI works. This is when this question came to my mind.

comment Control-p freezes SSH session
When SSH freezes touch /tmp/foo does not have any effect. Yes, I can use SSH escape sequences - I can leave session with . and list available commands with ?. I will do strace and post back the results.

comment Control-p freezes SSH session
I ran sshd -ddd on the server and connected to it on another subshell. After typing something debug log showed lines similar to debug3: Wrote 32 bytes for a total of 3103. When I pressed C-p both session when sshd was running and the one in which I pressed C-p froze. After that debug only showed debug1: server_input_global_request: rtype keepalive@openssh.com want_reply 1 interlaced with debug3: Wrote 32 bytes for a total of 3167 with different numbers after total of. I checked with stty -a that ^S is bound to stop.

There is only one keybinding for C-p: "\C-p": previous-history. Command you suggested also prints "\C-x\C-x": exchange-point-and-mark
