comment How can I page up or down in tmux with Terminal.app?
page-up and page-down are not valid tmux (v1.8) commands, so those last two commands give an error: Unknown command: page-(up|down)

comment Best practices for attaching debug symbols to system libraries during development?
makepkg.conf has plenty of ways for specifying different strip options when building locally, so I've got a couple versions (debug & optimised), but you can't choose the distributors' build options, nor as far as I can tell, choose to save debug symbols in separate files / packages. A problem I'm having atm is having a separate, debug version of Python, as extra symbols are included when compiled with --with-pydebug, so the shared libraries are not ABI compatible, breaking any extension modules I have on the system...

comment Best practices for attaching debug symbols to system libraries during development?
Thanks for the response! The default makepkg settings on Arch strip (I think) all symbols from built binaries. So every time a system package is upgraded upstream, I lose any debug version I may have compiled myself. I've got to recompile the package again and reinstall it myself if I need those symbols back. Surely there's a better way, though? e.g. it would be nice to leave the original libraries alone, and put the bulk of the debugging symbols in a separate directory structure..
