@sim - In what way?

comment Why is vi apparently broken (viminfo error E576), and how can I fix it?
I am using vi, not vim. Are you sure? vi is often aliased to vim (check with which vi and then file on that location).

comment Removing disk quotas in Scientific Linux
The problem is your root partition is too small to hold your DB. If I were you, I'd just put the DB somewhere different, like in your home area: changing mogodb data storing directory.

comment Accidental `nano SomeFile | uniq` renders the shell unresponsive
@Michael Mrozek - Well, clearly your mileage varies. On my box, with nano 2.2.2, Ctrl-Z gives me 'Use "fg" to return to nano.' and then stops the job as expected.

comment Accidental `nano SomeFile | uniq` renders the shell unresponsive
@MichaelMrozek - Have you tried it? The Ctrl-Z solution is effective. It works exactly as Nikos describes.

Not really sure what your question is. You could have suspended the job with Ctrl+Z, then kill %1 to get rid of it...

The kernel update is actually a minor update, according to your definition.

Sure. But how does this answer the question? The OP has the correct package name already.

comment Why are the UIDs in Solaris so very high? Is it alright to use lower numbers?
I'm surprised by this 'default'. The documentation actually seems to suggest avoiding UIDs above 60,000, due to incompatibility issues. It also says that 100 -- 60,000 is available for regular user accounts. See char.tuiasi.ro/doace/solaris/solaris-sysadmin-guide/ch07/….

comment Assigning IP address to environment variable
+1, although note that my manpage says: -i: Display the network address(es) of the host name. Note that this works only if the host name can be resolved. Avoid using this option; use hostname --all-ip-addresses instead.

comment How can I call bc from within awk in this case?
@ixtmixilix - I don't think the intent of that site is to write the whole program within the 5 minute time limit. Rather, the time limit ensures you consider your solution before downloading the test data, and prevents many brute force attempts. This is covered in the Rosalind FAQ.
