SysAdmin on large Unix machines (HP-UX, AIX, Linux, and lately solaris). I mainly work on Performance analisys and Tuning for problems related to Infor ERP LN and database (manily oracle). I also design applications and program them, currently in Java. I am absolutely unhappy with Java and I will start my next work probably in Python or Django.

comment How do I configure my tty session such that a form feed `\f` character will clear the terminal?
the command echo -e "\f" instruct the echo command to send to its stdout the control character formfeed, while the command echo "\f" instruct the echo command to send a backslash followed by an f.

comment How to get past “Loading Initial Ramdisk” hang after going from x86_64 to i686 cpu
I think there should be no problem in running this VM on the new processor. Could you please boot again the guest without the "quiet" kernel option in order to have more details on what the problem is? (I might be wrong, but I assume that a linux kernel is loaded, while the problem may be earlier.)

@Jmoney38 you may probably simply check /etc/fstab.

Do you have any non standard option for the target file system? I am referring to journaling options specially.

comment chroot fails with --userspec when chroot is i686
You are right.I did not correctly understood that sentence. Maybe you could also try a workaround like preceding your commands with a su --command 'sg $group -c "$command"' $user or write a wrapper script that runs inside the chroot.

comment Ksh Script to ftp multiple directories simultaneously
I believe the problem is due to the fact that print -p is meant to write the a process via pipe. It may be (I am not sure about this) that you running this via different pipes, since you run a different process that gets its input from ls command.
