comment Moving /var, /home to separate partition
Well, that's not strictly true. Root gets mounted first, and I specifically asked because Debian's "Read-only root" advice mentions the possibility of processes wanting to access /var before it's mounted. But in my case, where I have a Raspberry Pi and have set up a read-only filesystem on / (because the SD card keeps getting corrupted when the power goes out to the machine), you're encouraging me that either method will work. Nothing's going to write onto the root filesystem, because it's RO, so either case will result in an error.

comment Moving /var, /home to separate partition
What happens with the respective methods if something wants /var before it's mounted? I rather suspect that the bind method will be cleaner, but I really don't know.

comment Moving /var, /home to separate partition
@Gilles "There's no benefit to it"?????? (Maybe I need more question marks). Of course there's a benefit to it. / is mostly static. /var is almost entirely dynamic. If you mount /var on a separate partition, you can mount the root partition read-only. There are a ton of situations where that is a Good Thing™.

comment SSH easily copy file to local system
Honestly, I don't understand why this isn't upvoted. OP asked for a solution without scp. Sometimes, particularly as in my case where I'm ssh'ing into a very crippled ISP-provided router, I don't have sftp, I don't have scp, and even ftp is badly broken. I knew I could do this, I just came here to make sure my syntax was right.

comment Debian jessie cannot suspend anymore
There's an implication there that my answer was not accurate, which is untrue. I'll concede that dbus-send is a more universal (and therefore better) method.

comment Change the number of rows and columns in the TTY
yes, you probably can—but that other answer doesn't tell you how, and that's what I was looking for, too. I don't mind my console coming up with a tiny font most of the time, but right now, I want it bigger!

And "hibernate" is never a synonym of "suspend": they're two quite different functions.

comment virtual box debian guest with nat & host-only adapters: 'No route to host' when trying to access host from guest
I've been digging for hours trying to find the answer to the same problem, and sure enough you're right. Somebody added some pretty ridiculous firewall rules…. Thanks
