My main job is cheese making.
For hobbies, I write computer programs, fix other people's computers, and program AVR microcontrollers.

comment sed whitespace matching confusion
I really did not post my real problem at first, just a portion of it. I thought I could figure out the main problem if I could get over the puzzling behavior of my first example.

comment sed whitespace matching confusion
I know about tr. I will forever regret the example I initially posted. I was specifically wondering how to replace a sequence of whitespace with one character, even though I did a poor job of explaining that.

@Leiaz Oh yes...been too long since I've studied regex. I do remember now about '+'.

comment inotify does not work with linux kernel 3.4.11
No, CONFIG_DNOTIFY should not need to be set. Dnotify and Inotify are separate things (Inotify replaced Dnotify if I understand it correctly).

comment What are the minimum root filesystem applications that are required to fully boot linux?
@BigHomie Remember, the Free Software Foundation wants us all to call it GNU/Linux, since on most (all?) "Linux distros" the software is GNU, even though the kernel is Linux (hence GNU/Linux).

Are you wondering if it is possible to do all those commands without root? Or just the extlinux command?

comment Which home directory should 'nobody' have?
On my distro (Fedora 18) nobody has the home directory set to / and the log in shell set to /bin/nologin. In other words, it probably wouldn't matter what the home directory is set to if the user can't log in anyways.
