Added a simple script to address the "just give me the outbound IP" problem.

comment How to get IP Address using shell script?
Then it's just getting the local address from an open socket to Google. The way I read it, he wanted to enumerate over all interfaces and map IPs to interfaces as opposed to just opening a socket and looking for the local IP.

comment Playing or converting .dv4 files in Linux
Do you have sample dv4 files for people that don't have them laying around to play with? Someone might give you an "I figured out how to do it" style answer if you did.

comment Ubuntu screen is small in VMware
It could have tried and failed. VMware tools fail to build right on older and brand new versions because they can't seem to dynamically track kernel headers very well and keep the kernel module building.

comment Best distro for using Google Docs on old computer
I can't seem to find it in the FAQ, but I'm pretty sure "best" questions are discouraged as opinion based and non-constructive.

comment Root access that can't change root password?
Nobody said "The use case is running a shell or an application that can run commands". That would make this answer wrong. Restarting services, editing with sudoedit, blah blah, are all related to using sudo properly and granting root or root-like permissions properly. We could all take a really dim view of it and say rewrite all the applications/services that have to run as root to run as non-priviledged users and tricky configurations... or we could expect that people use the sudoers functionality properly for non-interactive root permissions or intentionally limited root applications.

meh. this is boring. you're steering it instead of trying to help someone try and understand using a command. moving along.

So you have to not grant permissions to interactive things or to run as a specific non-root user or group

comment Problem with file permissions in shared directory under /srv between OS X and Ubuntu
Mac probably explicitly sets group permissions to 0 instead of respecting a more normal linux/unix umask.
