comment GKrellM vs. udev's asynchronous drive mappings on bootup
Because udev is designed to work asynchronously, hence I would only resort to this method if there is really no other way out.

comment Linux Mint: drives' map changing at reboot brings fstab error
For your NTFS drives, you may also want to use ntfslabel from ntfsprogs package (instead of booting into Windows or gparted on Linux to change the label). It now gets shipped on quite a couple major distros.

comment Map IDE drive to /dev/hda
Yes, but frankly, I'd rather strangle myself than getting convinced to work with UUIDs in /etc/fstab, to begin with. It just messes up the listing with its insanely long hex values (and my eyes, too). They're no less annoying to work with than Class IDs on Windoze.

comment “Out of Memory” error while copying large files with pcmanfm
LOL. YMMD with that great comparison.:) But for real, I think it might make a difference to a system that is not yet out of memory. That is, if you try adjusting swappiness before copying the huge-size stuff, you might have a slight chance of getting swap utilized way earlier (ideally preventing vital processes from being killed). Or couldn't you?

comment What happens if a file is modified while you're copying it?
Good explanation. BTW, this has always surprised me why this is possible under UNIX-like OSes without getting the typical error message known from Windows ("Can't access file - file in use") You could not even play an MP3 file that was already deleted while playing it. Under Unix, you can (surprisingly) - with no problems at all. I guess UNIX-based OSes always work with backup copies of the files, so this is feasible.

comment “Out of Memory” error while copying large files with pcmanfm
OUCH! Thanks a lot, I wasn't aware of that. But this is because (as you just pointed out) there is no separate source of the file manager you could download but it's crammed into libfm. And alas, you have to learn about that fact first if you have never delved into its internals before.

comment “Out of Memory” error while copying large files with pcmanfm
Thanks, that's more like it! man proc revealed that it is set to 60 by default. But on my system, it was set to 5. That's "quite" a difference, I must say...

@dsmsk80 Thanks, regardless of if it will solve my OOM problem, this is at least something interesting to fiddle with! (BTW could you please consider making the word "low" in boldface too for clarity's sake?)

Oh yes, cp works, I know that. Did that 3 days ago with a 125 GB image file from a partition (preferably done from "built-in" consoles CTRL-ALT-F1 to not interfere with anything). But sometimes it's more comfortable to do this via file manager, especially when you have to select some files or directories.
