comment Lock screen shortcut not working after update of Fedora 16
Yes, vintage F16 updates had not been applied, and I finally applied them. I fixed this by running gnome-screensaver &, since I guess this was removed from a list of startup apps. It's not ideal because I have to run that each time I restart or manually put it in my login file (seems like I should not have to do this).

comment Best way to follow a log and execute a command when some text appears in the log
Thanks, -n 0 will help. In my current case, a little fragility isn't an issue because I'm just going through experimental iteration. From another question, I found that grep -m 1 "server is up" <(tail -n 0 -f /path/to/serverLog); some_command avoids problems with a pipe remaining alive when I expect it to die and have the command terminate.

I found an alternative, though I don't know how solid it is: tail -f /path/to/serverLog | grep "server is up" | head -1 && do_some_command
