comment Using FC 19 - How can I interact with very long menus?
And yes - I am aware I can get to the specific gedit options with view->highlight mode. It still stands that the toolbar language selector is too long for the screen. I can also see this on pycharm when context clicking folders in a project view. I am sure I can find other examples.

revised Unexpected whitespace using sqsh in command substitution
Wget behaviour was a symptom of the variable assigned earlier in the bash or sqsh part of the script.

Ah - I cannot see your edit yet Hauke. Your tags make more sense than mine.

comment Unexpected whitespace using sqsh in command substitution
That may suggest that this need to be tagged with sqsh and not wget then. If the whitespace appears earlier -the wget stuff later is noise.

comment Can the “du” program be made less aggressive?
The system is a build farm, so the number of files in a dir is really down to the devs of the components we build. df wouldn't quite work - the problem is that we do have clean up scripts, so we may see no change, but have missed an early warning for an automatic job that is aggressively grabbing disk space. We use zabbix to monitor overall disk use, but knowing the individual directories where things are going a bit nuts is pretty essential.

Can you add the output of "uname -a" and "lsb_release -a" please?

comment ERROR:While Updating
You appear to be switching from 32bit to 64bit packages. I'd certainly be looking to do a fresh install and migrate my configuration to it than try and upgrade through to that.
