comment rsyslog.conf only partly honored
Yes, the problem remains unsolved. But the workaround is to get the info from the global log file, so it isn't nagging me a lot.

comment Having trouble exporting FUSE via NFS
Yes, I did. To no avail, unfortunately. But in the meantime we switched off the old hardware with the old system, so this question isn't interesting anymore. I should maybe close it ... ;-)

comment How to recover TrueCrypt datas?
Would be a pity if it didn't; after all that's the typical case I guess (i. e. if people use weak passwords at all).

Due to that information and the link, I can easily ⁺¹ this answer :)

comment How to recover TrueCrypt datas?
What about if you have keyfiles but still a weak password? Shouldn't the brute-force dictionary attack still work?

That's interesting. Can you point to some documentation on LD_RUN_PATH?

And if you bundle them, the user (or your install or start script) can set the LD_LIBRARY_PATH to point to the location of the libraries.

comment Having trouble exporting FUSE via NFS
Yes, I know, but as I wrote I tried various combinations of the mount options which should allow exporting the contents of submounts. In fact, with plain mounted ISO images this works flawlessly. Only with my FUSE it fails. And I cannot mount that FUSE on the client because that host is so old it does not support FUSE. The whole idea of that FUSE-via-NFS is just to allow the client to access the features of that FUSE it cannot run itself.

comment How to grep a specific line _and_ the first line of a file?
nl does not count empty lines (but prints them without line number), cat -n formats the numbering with preceding spaces, grep -n . strips empty lines at all and adds a colon. All have their ... er ... features ;-)

Adding sleeps to avoid concurrency problems is always a hack. Though this might work, it's a step towards the dark side. -1 for this.

Line numbering can be done with cat -n as well and would look clearer as with a grep abused for this.

That's the idea spelled out directly in bash. I'd like to give more than one thumbs-up for this. I'd just maybe use { IFS='' read line; ... } in case the header starts with spaces.

Changes between the two calls aren't to be bothered in this situation. The first will only provide the headline which will always fit to the output of the second.
