comment df reports 100% full filesystem, du shows only 25% used even though there's no unlinked file
@frostschutz Thanks a lot, I was able to figure out the file after doing a bind-mount. Could you make it an Answer so I can select it and upvote :)

comment Most common high level language?
As others suggested, Python and Ruby are used widely, including building sysadmin tools. Both of them are easy to learn and code. Alternatively, you may want to take a look at Go as well. With Go you can produce binary just like C, C++, but it's easier to learn and code. It's faster and better in multi-threading compared to CPython. Plus you do not have to deploy and maintain a full stack of Python or Ruby environment just to run your utility. You can just deploy the binary produced by Go compiler.

comment What is the default font used in rxvt?
misc-fixed-width6x13. If anyone's interested, I have modified fixed6x13 to have dotted zero and curved 'l' (lowercase ell). Available for Mac, Linux and even Windows: github.com/soumyadipdm/Fixed6x13-dotted-zero

comment RHEL6 + Error: xz compression not available
Have you tried yum clean all and then rpmdb -v --rebuilddb, then try running yum install foo? And by the way, I see you have installed source rpm, I am not sure if that's any good.

comment Recompile the kernel changing only one option
This depends on which kernel modules are affected by CONFIG_ACPI_I2C_OPREGION, if it's just one, you may follow the directions here: askubuntu.com/questions/168279/…

comment cpu temperature is higher than usual after installing xubuntu
What made you think it's the missing driver? Do you see any process that continuously consume 100% cpu (using top or ps)?

comment Why doesn't this simple piping with awk work?
On further investigation it seems like awk is doing some sort of buffering - awk is not buffering anything. It's the pipe which populates STDIN of the right hand side command only when the left hand side commad has finished executing. And this is not a problem. This is how it's supposed to be. I do not see a point in the whole thing you did.

comment Can't find the location of DUMPed file system
I am glad to hear that. The reason "locate" could not find this file is because, locate keeps a cache/index of all files in the system. But it relies on cron to trigger this at a specified frequency. Find on the other hand checks the directory entries to search for files/dirs.
