comment vim how to unabbreviate
Could it be that you're typing :una main followed by a space? In other words, are you causing the abbreviation to be expanded before entering the command?

comment vim how to unabbreviate
I have the same vim version and I can't reproduce this behavior. My command history shows (like yours) that the abbreviation was expanded with una but it is disabled after I enter the command.

comment How to use awk or sed to convert rows to columns
Both methods assume a fixed number of entries per "column" which the OP doesn't explicitly specify.

comment chpasswd apply changes in the chroot directory
@NarūnasK Great update to the question! A quick and dirty solution would be to bind mount your host's /usr/share into the chroot tree. That may not be what you want, though, in case your bootstrapped environment has special packages installed under that subtree.

Can you please explain what you need this for? There might be a simpler way to accomplish it.

comment Linux Debian codenames
If it were me, I'd just continue picking characters from other Pixar movies. Humanity will probably go extinct before we run out. Let the aliens worry about carrying on the naming convention after that. :D

comment How can I compile a C program that I've edited in Vi or Vim?
@balki I think the OP already has his/her own compilation flow set up; the problem was that the file had not been saved to disk yet. Unfortunately, the current title of the question is somewhat misleading.

comment What are the disadvantages of using config file (source) for passwords in bash scripts
I sure hope not. *nix stores user passwords in encrypted form but you can't use an encrypted password to authenticate. This is for security reasons: if this weren't the case and the password file were stolen in any way, the attacker would gain immediate access to all user accounts. It should be the same with any reasonably-designed authentication mechanism.
