comment Where can I find information on Linux device driver parameters?
Do you mean driver-specific parameters, or are you thinking more along the lines of "how does migration_cost=1000,2000,3000 affect the tg3 driver"?

I've tried to ask the question in a more general way here: unix.stackexchange.com/questions/9553/…

comment How do I choose a graphics card for Linux?
I'm not making this a community wiki because I'd like people to get credit for answering, but if you have further refinements to the question itself please edit it or add comments here which I'll integrate. Thanks.

@Narak, I think your second example there is only working by accident.

This question is difficult because the hardware changes so rapidly.

comment Why is file ownership inconsistent between two systems mounting the same NFS share?
(Not necessarily /etc/passwd. Could come from a centralized directory service — which is basically mandatory for sanity on any large deployment of NFS.)

comment Understanding top and load average
— I've yet to see a system where multiple cores on a socket are exposed up to user-space in a way which makes them look like anything but more CPUs. So in top, on the 4-socket quad-core system, 16 CPUs are seen. (So one can readily see that the load of 9 is below the number of CPUs.)

comment Understanding top and load average
Note that (because they're usually expected to be scheduled very soon), tasks in the "uninterruptible" state are also counted as running. Just a detail, not something that changes your question.

comment Can I change root password by sudo, without su?
I'm not aware of any systems which force root to provide the previous root password. (After all all, you could change it with sed and the /etc/shadow file.) But maybe I haven't used enough "serious systems". Can you give an example of one such system?

comment Are there any Linux distros aimed specifically at being Linux tutorials?
(And to explain the joke: it's kind of like if someone asks for a tutorial on driving a car, and you answer with ehow.com/how_4622896_build-internal-combustion-engine.html)

@amphetamachine — well, the joke is, literally, "Hey, there's Linux From Scratch!". But then I starting thinking, and the result is the above answer.
