comment How do I check if a file is a symbolic link to a directory?
Isn't [ -L "$file" ] && [ -d "$file" ] better? Something with portability between shells iirc.

comment Does a Certificate Authority represent my company or a server?
Thanks for the honest answer. To help you understand better, I am as a beginner following official Debian documentation: wiki.debian.org/OpenVPN which at one point sets up a "ca".

comment won't the ever changing affinity assigned to threads by the Linux kernel have adverse effect on overall performance?
I know many many use-cases where setting the affinity is beneficial. One example would be a render graph with many cpu intensive nodes. Distributing nodes smartly over cores and setting affinity would preserve caches all over, so the industrial-grade scheduler in Linux is missing out on plenty of optimizations!

You say affinity is not related to scheduling. To rephrase my question with this in mind; won't letting the scheduler pin affinity ("mixing them") have the potential of improve scheduling?

comment Who started xterm in my debian xterm+lightdm kiosk system?
Actually there is no .xinitrc anymore. It's called .xsession now for some reason.

I made a discovery! lightdm uses /etc/X11/Xsession which on debian is a huge mess of scripts calling eachoter. This in turn is responsible for calling ~/.xsession The reason why xterm was started is because I did not have ~/.xsession. And this is the fun part: the ~/.xinitrc file is no longer used for never versions of xorg, so even if you have it, it will still revert to the xterm

comment Who started xterm in my debian xterm+lightdm kiosk system?
good idea! I allready did ps auxf and it is clear that xterm is started by lightdm, however I am more interrested in knowing which configuration option in which configuration file is responsible. I guess that must be the lightdm.conf file, however it is not at all clear to my how it selected to start xterm
