comment “Virtual” shell, ie. jailing an user inside a process after the (SSH) login
Better would be to put just exec php script.php in your .bashrc. Then the bash process will be replaced entirely, rather than sitting around taking up resources while the php script runs.

comment Is there any impact of reaping zombie processes?
Here is a counterexample that took no time to find: monit starts a program at regular intervals but doesn't reap them until the following interval starts, perhaps five minutes later.

comment Live USB: how to access USB drive that linux booted from
I know you're using mint, which is why I specified that this was for Ubuntu, in case anyone else came across this question and was wondering. But anyway, this is most certainly a distro-specific thing, because they're all different.

comment How do I find out the device node corresponding to my device in SuSE 8?
For anyone else coming across this question: let me stress that using udev and the links in /dev/serial/by-id is the right solution. This question only exists because the asker is using a Linux distribution that is more than a decade old.

comment Linux, disable /dev/fd0 (floppy)
Hence the line "immediately and upon rebooting". The point was that it works immediately, and it will also persist after a reboot, so you don't need to keep doing it.
