comment How can I determine if running tar will cause disk to fill up
Tangentially: don't create the tarfile as root, a certain percentage of space on the disk is set aside for root exclusively, exactly for the kind of "I've filled the disk and now I can't login because that would write .bash_history or whatever" situation.

comment Centralized logs for tomcat logs
Are any of the services clustered, i.e. would you need to merge some of the log files on the fly?

comment Logrotate not picking up or acting on new configuration file
Does logrotate -d (debug mode) show anything enlightening? Maybe there's one more place you need to change the filename in the config file (I'm sure this not only happens to me?). logrotate runs with high privileges, so there shouldn't be permissions issues, like being unable to read/create the files, but double-checking can't hurt.

... and then SSLRequireSSL the DocumentRoot <Directory> to make sure that trying non-encrypted access is an immediate "403 unauthorized", just to be on the safe side.

@Rahul: -p MySecretPassword would show in the output of ps and the history, amongst other places.

comment My /var/www directory is full
I don'T see your new 27G partition in there yet, have you added a mountpoint for it? (A way that might be useful to go is: mount to some temporary place, move contents of /var/www there, mount as /var/www.)

comment Why do some scripts need constant re-sourcing during debian init?
All true; still, spawning new shells has a cost, which is why (IIRC) Debian uses the slimmed-down dash for startup purposes instead of a more heavyweight bash, for example.

comment Why does my system freeze during bootup unless I boot into recovery mode?
Is this oFono thing the last thing you installed? Check if you configured it properly -- I've had some services before that would simply hang when not configured properly, which is "not so good" in a linear startup process. (BTW, what distro is that? Knowing that, we might be able to give more specific hints on diabling startup services etc.)

comment What is the difference between lhome and home, and is it causing my SSH key authentication to fail?
Is your system configured to have /home mounted separately on a remote filesystem? (I could see how it's useful to have systems accounts not depend on a working network connection, but I've not come across /lhome yet.)

comment Using Fedora 19 to burn .iso-image to external HDD
This sounds like maybe you're trying to create an install medium? In that case, UNetbootin could be what you're looking for.

Just in case the tools show you version numbers: latest driver for your GPU is the legacy r13.1 driver, newest overall is r13.12.

comment Audible DRM Removal for personal use
If things haven't changed in the last year, the audible manager now delegates burning to itunes and in my experience, itunes can't successfully span audiobooks over several CDs. But running inside a VM will make grabbing the sound output easier.
