comment Gnome freezes when waking up after a long blank screen
If you're running systemd you may check the output of journalctl -b (log of the last boot). Add a -p 3 option to only show error messages.

comment Unable to use tar to run an archive through bzip2 compression
@tink: the z option is for compressing with gzip; you probably wanted to say j for the bzip2 compression

comment Can not play Audio CD in Arch Linux
@macnguyen: I don't know why mpv works and vlc doesn't, but I have a suggestion for you: why don't you try to rip the CD to the hard disk with a tool such as cdparanoia? Rip once and then forget about it. Also libdvdread, libdvdcss and libdvdnav are tools for watching/ripping video DVDs, not audio CDs.

comment How to open rar file in linux?
@vonbrand: I perfectly know unrar is proprietary software. I'm not suggesting anyone to use it. I'm suggesting the OP to use unar (please notice the missing letter "r"), which is free software and is even included in Parabola GNU/Linux-libre, a 100% free GNU/Linux distribution, even stricter than Fedora.

comment How to open rar file in linux?
@vonbrand: availability depends on the specific GNU/Linux distribution. For example unar is available for Parabola GNU/Linux-libre. Anyway I didn't mention "unrar", and unar != unrar

comment tune2fs - how much space to reserve on large ext4 filesystem
I always set the amount of reserved disk space to 0% for big partitions with media files only. I never had any problem so far.

comment Window manager with wayland?
I don't know the answer to your question. Just wanted to point out that KDE and GNOME are desktop environments, not window managers.

I agree with your answer, but there's an exception: removing cached files from uninstalled unwanted applications.

comment Is Kali Linux 2.0 Fully Open Source?
I disagree that having "closed source" software is not a problem. Proprietary software is always problematic.

comment How can I choose optimal values for block size and blocks number for badblocks?
I don't think so. In my case using the default -c value (that is, omitting it) is significantly slower than using higher values (32768 or 65536).

comment How can I choose optimal values for block size and blocks number for badblocks?
I hoped for a universal formula to calculate the value of -c. I will try the benchmark script instead.

I don't have that option in my /etc/default/grub file.

comment How to correctly set up the right GRUB 2 default menu entry?
I don't know why, but it seems it doesn't work. I set GRUB_DEFAULT=3 as you said, then re-run grub2-mkconfig. But at boot time the default entry is still vmlinuz-3.7.4-gentoo-third.

comment How do I know if dd is still working?
This might be helpful for the next time, but it won't help the OP to understand if the current command is frozen or not.
