comment use mosh without giving up local scrollback / history?
though this answer was downvoted for technical reasons, it's probably the best (only?) way to get decent scrollback on the local client using mosh.

comment What prevents RHEL7 default PAM config's “nullok” option from allowing empty passwords?
This is not true. An application may choose to do whatever it wishes with credentials before passing them to PAM. See my answer for more details.

how are you logging in? ssh? sshd may choose to reject a blank password. do you have logs from the service you're using to log in?

comment Can I “drag” a file into a window without a file manager?
> Can I tell my browser "I just dropped this file onto you" without actually doing it?" Sounds like a great question for the javascript community on stackexchange.

comment Start zsh with a custom zshrc
I'm not sure you can do both, though you should be able to figure this out by reading the INVOCATION section of the zsh man pages. However, you can just set ZDOTDIR instead: ssh -t host ZDOTDIR=/path/to/rcfile zsh

comment Start zsh with a custom zshrc
I already told you why this is and how to fix it. When you run ssh -t host "zsh -d -f; source /path/to/file", the command source... is NOT run inside the zsh shell. It's run in your login shell after the zsh shell exits. To test this out, run ssh host "zsh; echo foo". You will see the output "foo" after you exit from the zsh shell.

comment What is the correct way to upgrade 7zip on Solaris 10?
Is there a 7z package available for Solaris 10? Try searching unixpackages.com/packages . It is far preferable to use the package manager (pkgadd, pkgrm, etc.) than to use some vendor's untrustworthy install script.

comment Start zsh with a custom zshrc
seems like your problem is not in using a custom zshrc but in not knowing how to use a shell over ssh. If you run ssh host "zsh -d -f; source /path/to/file", then ssh will run first zsh on the remote host, then source ... after the zsh shell exits. Instead what you want to do is ssh -t host zsh -d -f to drop into an interactive shell on the remote host, or if you don't want an interactive shell, do ssh host zsh -d -f -c \"source /path/to/file\; other command\; ... \".

comment Where to file a bug?
Where is the bug? Bugs could be caused by developers, package maintainers, hardware manufacturers, etc., so you will have to use your best descretion in determining who is reponsible and should receive the bug report. Sometimes software bugs can be filed with the package maintainer who has the choice to forward the bug on to the developer.
