comment How do I change which version of Qt is used for qmake?
@TamsynMichael - Yes, on the linux side qmake in bin is just a symlink. So, if you used something like update-alternatives to switch back and forth, that might be ideal. It's not in update-alternatives, and things like the PyQt build scripts want a direct reference to the binary anyway - not a symlink.

comment Why does apt-get in Ubuntu still want to install Python 2.7?
Well thought out answer Oli. I might add a little bit of because the PEP tells us it's the right thing to do. It's more intuitive for a package/pseudo-package to refer to the binary it provides.

Also, the recursive switch on rm is superfluous. A file never needs to be recursively deleted. I suspect you were trying to troubleshoot the file and tried to remove the r from rf and got as far as deleting the f from rf. Either way, you shouldn't need either switch.

You didn't tell people what virtualization solution you're using. Until you do, this question is less than useful.

comment Explanation of the building process of the kernel on Ubuntu/Debian systems
I think you're asking about packaging, not building. Building the kernel is configure make make install, or make menuconfig, make, make install...

comment How to allow authentication with `sudo` using an alternate password?
Even better, but why not just a cron script to keep UIDs and GUIDs in sync between two users?

comment How can I deny internet access to all processes except the chosen ones?
You could use iptables as suggested in the answer provided, but I think you're looking for a per process firewall. This doesn't exist at the moment. It's all port restrict/allow.

comment New users cannot connect to server via SSH
If someone wants to write an answer for this, here are the things to think about explaining: a config that isn't refreshed, the server not having the pub-key, or a client that doesn't support key auth only uname/pwd auth.

comment How to install meld 3.11 in Ubuntu 14.04?
if you asked what you think are ubuntu related questions on AU or searched there, you would find this: askubuntu.com/questions/161739/… which points to this libglib2.0-bin as the dangling dependency, but i digress...

comment How to install meld 3.11 in Ubuntu 14.04?
either i have a dangling dependency from my current install that i can't see, or you have broken packages or you're using a broken distro or custom themes that break stuff. in any case , it works here

comment How to install meld 3.11 in Ubuntu 14.04?
Check the README for directions on installing. It's located in the meld folder... It has a setup.py. It also has nothing to do with Ubuntu.

comment Are there distros with ptrace_scope set to zero by default?
Good to know that Debian yanked it back out. A process can call prctl and make itself not traceable with ptrace anyway, if it thinks it is going to hold data someone might be after.
