comment How to launch multiple instances of a program in parallel using parallel?
-n0 = read one argument, but throw it away. -n1 = read one argument and use it.

comment Need to format 5 disks in parallel
@vonbrand Are you sure? If the disks are slow SATA disks, then I would imagine most time was spent waiting for the platter to spin/seeking. Have you tested your claim? If so would you share the numbers with us?

@Diagon great: I reported the bug (which is due to a 32 bit counter).

Instead of encrypting zeros why not just use random data: openssl rand 123456789

comment DBD/DBI: Crashes if a program is forked
Great analysis which seems to hold. Problem is that in the real code forks (like the above) are being done all over the place. Is there a way to tell the forked process, that the DBI-handle is the parent's and should not be touched?

comment Keyboard misconfigured after resume from suspend-to-ram
Everything is upgraded. I cannot reproduce the bug reliably - it only happens sometimes and only on this one machine. So for all we know it could be due to faulty hardware. All in all it would make for a pretty crappy error report. Therefore a workaround is IMO the best way forward - which is also why I ask for that. I found a workaround - see other answer.

@glennjackman It is basically what it is. I only included the library functions directly, so you would not have to install special libraries to get it to work.

comment Debugging: OwnCloud horribly slow
No third party apps enabled. How do I check if php is correctly configured? The problem is intermittent: It can run for several minutes with no problem and then suddenly stall. https server side encryption - no file encryption.
