comment Laptop & compatible distro wanted: Sub £250, low power, SSD HDD, only CLI interface required
Plenty of netbook-ish hardware around, 32G in-built flash storage, 2G RAM, 10", usually coming with Win8.1 Bing edition, but since those are a normal x86 platform, there shouldn't be any unusual trouble running Linux on them.

comment Why can't I remove the empty directory with username www-data?
Just in case it's an SELinux issue: please run getenforce and ls -lZ /home/test for us? Oh, and getfacl /home/test/, to be on the complete side.

comment Want to grep a date in a file and its next 5 lines
Please run grep -V for us. Are you on SunOS/Solaris with its notoriously frugal tools?

comment How can I see previous `at` jobs?
Beyond the stdout/stderr that will be sendmailed to the user (or the user named in the environment variable LOGNAME) as per man at?

comment Assistance with script on multiple hosts
How nothing is nothing? Your report.txt stays entirely empty? Does just the ssh 10.xx.xx.xx -l zaira cat do what you intend it to do? You could try taking out all the >> $FILE, then you see what's going on and where it's getting stuck.

comment ssh terminating immediately with message Terminated
Weird… if memory serves, "Terminated" is what the shell would say if somebody had killed your ssh. strace ssh localhost might be helpful, but is lower level than ssh -vvv, so try ssh -vvv first.

comment Can I make davfs ignore untrusted certificates?
Are you in a situation where having the certificate re-issued is costly? (The certificate can contain Subject Alternate Names, which means it could also be valid for the name localhost and the IP 127.0.0.1.)

comment how to create multi tar archives for a huge folder
If your question is how to split your list of 30000 files into 30 lists of 1000 files each, xargs -L may be helpful.

comment Remove all 'at' Jobs except first five jobs
tail -n +6 will start at line 6. (Yes, bizarre syntax.) Or, untested, sed -ne '6,$p'

comment SSL by IP or domain
A certificate can cover multiple names ("Subject Alternative Names"), and my vague memory is that they have the form DNS:www.foo.example in the config, so I guess there's a syntax to have naked IPs in there, too.

comment How to find out if a system uses SysV, Upstart or Systemd initsystem
Very handwavy, couldn't you see what process has pid 1 and what strings says about it? For my Ubuntu box here, the results contain "upstart", now it's just data gathering ;)

comment Print line have special format and amount of comma
Just to make sure the obvious: your fields are separated by commas? (One of your sample lines has |, which I could see people using as separators.)

comment unknown facility name “local8”
@acoder: I should think so, but I'm not sitting at a machine with rsyslog (and its manpages) isntalled right now.
