comment Linux Fedora 20, Adobe Flash plugin
We don't use SOLVED tags to indicate answered questions here. Instead, you may want to post the solution (possibly including what led you up to it) as a self-answer, and accept that answer. That will indicate to the community that the question has been resolved to your satisfaction, while clearly separating the question from the answer.

@dr01 This answer isn't complete without mentioning xfce4. Those three pretty much cover all major setups.

comment Debian jessie without desktop
@laguce After changing the package repository settings, you must apt-get update before you can meaningfully do anything else. Did you do that?

comment Find all words beginning with Q
@TobySpeight "to beginning and end of pattern" doesn't seem to be quite what the OP wants, though.

comment Find all words beginning with Q
Did you try this? (1) The *.py will be expanded by the shell, which will cause find to complain if it expands to more than one file name. (2) grep --color Q* {} will execute grep on each matching file (not too bad) highlighting every place where Q occurs (not what the OP wants, because this will match the word pkQuest just as much as the word Quest). Please take care to ensure that your answers match the requirements stated in the question, testing them if you are unsure.

comment Where is the Programmer's manpage for the open C Function?
You can also use apropos, or man --names-only with one of --regex or --wildcard. See man man.

You can use shopt -s dotglob (in bash) if you want to see dotfiles as well.

comment How does Unix implement file permissions?
tar will preserve ownership and permissions unless its o option is given. Yes, that's completely logical.

comment delete all .swp file using rm command
This command is different from what the OP is doing, since find by default will recurse into subdirectories to find matching files.

comment What exactly does init do?
You can use whatever interpreter you like for SysV-style init scripts, including Perl, awk, bash, (t)csh, native binaries, ... Bash is normally used because it's virtually guaranteed to be available on the system where such scripts are deployed at the relevant point in the boot process, not because there is some coupling between SysVinit and bash. SysVinit defines the contract and each script is free to implement that contract in any way its developer sees fit.

comment How do I find/change where GRUB 2 gets installed on a rewrite, on Debian Wheezy?
@Gregor I'm not sure I see what you are going for. /boot exists within the root partition, which is mounted by-uuid and lives on the device /dev/md0, but I don't see how the physical location of the contents of /boot has any bearing on whether GRUB is installed in the partition boot record or the master boot record, and on which device(s). device.map is dated from around when I installed the current device that holds the root file system, and has a mixture of old and current entries, but the physical device that holds /dev/md0 is in the list (as hd0).

comment Does ZFS for Linux over stress VirtualBox?
FWIW, I'm running ZoL 0.6.3 on top of Linux on real hardware, and while I have seen a few of these errors they are definitely rare enough to really stand out in the syslog notifications. That's in about a year and a half of nearly 24/7 workstation "production" usage. While I haven't yet tried running ZoL or any ZFS implementation in a VM, I'd be inclined to agree with your hypothesis that this is related to the VM, not to ZFS or ZoL.
