comment Create a symbolic copy of another directory that has it's own local data
It seems that cp -al foo/* foo_0311 may work. I still need to complete verification. I'm still puzzled why ln -s foo/* foo_0311 and ln -P foo/* foo_0311 both don't work (using -s leads to errors when I try to copy files after cd-ing to foo_0311; -P leads to hard link not allowed for directory).

This seems to create a directory foo inside foo_0311. Is there a way to avoid that? I was also seeing that with some of the solutions using ln that I tried.

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).
