comment GHOST: glibc gethostbyname buffer overflow
@muru: both 6 and 7 are affected, see link the OP gave. 6.6 had updates approx. 18 hours ago when I checked, maybe 6.5 is lagging a bit and is still syncing to the mirrors?

comment account login slow in Centos
Might be something slow in your .bashrc? Or your home directory being mounted on demand from a remote server. (Is opening a second session also slow?)

^H is backspace, won't removing them alter the semantics of the record? (i.e. ha^Hi is becomes hai when it should be hi)

comment Replace both disks in a raid 1 mirror
@goncalopp: True. My brain is somewhat stuck on the notion that RAID-1 would have <i>exactly</i> 2 instances of the payload (or 1 in failure mode), hence my confusion.

comment Why doesn't `shutdown now` (with no other arguments) run init scripts?
Anytime, as root. last looks at the history of your logins, reboots and runlevel changes, so it should tell you what runlevel your shutdown puts you in.

Can you run last -x for us? Maybe it's switching to yet a different runlevel. (I have a vague recollection it was runlevel s, single user mode, in slackware?)

comment For some IPs, ping -c 4 -W 1 ip | cat does not output anything until ping has finished, whereas it does for others
It could be a buffering matter, maybe there is no explicit flushing after the first line, only for the replies and the summary. In this case, [unix.stackexchange.com/q/25372/3929] discusses approaches that might be applicable here.

comment Updating my version of php to the latest 5.5 version
@TolaOdejayi: you can inch your way forward by starting with yum remove php-common, then your yum install php55w will conflict for the next packe, and so on. (FWIW, remi [offers 5.5.20]([remi]()), so I don't know why you're not offered that as an update andhave to switch repositories.)

Have you tried removing your earlier php install from the remi repositories?

I've cast a vote to reopen (needs four other people to agree with me and then you can get answers again).

comment Protecting my server from it's own users
This is very very broad: anything from "fan speed" to "hard drive diagnostics" to "disk filling up" to "log file X growing rapidly" to "am I fully patched" to "are there users logged in" would fall under "checking if the server is falling apart (or compromised)". As a meta-solution, many people find tools like nagios useful for monitoring.

comment How to increase the size of Linux Partition (EXT4) without loosing data when the swap partition is exactly after it?
ok, so that means that things like "restart from a Live CD and do stuff" are an option, so, yeah, DopeGhoti's approach looks good. (Things are more difficult if you can't restart the machine because, for example, you're running a web server on it that needs to stay available during the whole process.)

Is keeping the machine up during all this part of the game? (Disk sizes and no LVM sound like a desktop machine?)
