comment Linux Mint: LAN “Cable not connected”, despite it is
@Ned64: It happened again, I now added (hopefully all of) the relevant dmesg output. Reloading the kernel module indeed helped, so now I have a better solution than rebooting, so you already helped me, thank you for that. But of course, ideally I'd prefer it just to work.

Thanks for that information. I've saved it in a file so I can access it when the error happens next time.

@Ned64: I've added the output of ifconfig, lspci and lsmod. Since I can't predict when the error will occur the next time, the dmesg will have to wait.

comment What does CTRL+4 (and CTRL+\) do in bash?
@JDługosz: Ctrl-V tells the terminal to not interpret the following character. It is an unfortunate fact that GUI key combinations have taken over those control characters, causing unnecessary confusion. It used to be that Linux used Alt-[Key] for the GUI keys (e.g. Alt-C/Alt/V for copy/paste), but then people obviously thought doing the same as Windows was more important; meanwhile Mac users still have no problem to use the Command key instead of the Ctrl key for those operations.

comment How to use `yes` with `xargs -p`?
@Gabriel: (ls | xargs -n1 -p rm) <( yes ) would not work either, but for a different reason: <( yes ) is replaced by the name of a device or pipe the standard output of yes is connected to. But ( … ) does not not take arguments at all. That line simply gives a syntax error.

comment How to use `yes` with `xargs -p`?
@Gabriel: Unfortunately I'm not familiar with expect either. While answering, I actually tried to create a command with except that would do what you want, but didn't succeed; there's definitely a learning curve for it.

comment Reason for change in ctime when the file content is modified
Isn't mtime itself metadata? Thus if mtime is modified as result of data being modified, metadata is modified, therefore resulting in setting ctime to the time when that metadata modification (setting of mtime) occurred. At least that would be my interpretation; I have no idea if that is the official one.

How exactly do you "send a command across a network to a host"?
