comment Obtaining information about system hardware
"hardware you are using" as in "what physical hardware is there" (also see: lspci, lsusb) or "how much of my machine is currently occupied (for some value of occupied)" (also see: top, df)?

comment Why can Linux show a file name containing character '/'?
Even if all APIs enforce filename character restrictions on write, it could be possible (but unwieldy) to edit the filename directly in the disk image. (I do not know if today's usual filesystems check filenames on read.)

comment Running Apache server causing machine to run out of space
I'd advise against disabling logging entirely – tools like logrotate can help you keep only logs for the last 3 days or whatever you like. It's a lot less trouble than having to re-enable logging when you already have a problem with your server.

comment Preserve ownership with rsync and nonexistent user
Clarify "lost" -- you can't create a file with arbitrary ownership unless superuser on the remote side (uni), so I assume those files show my_name as the user?

comment ant command not found when running from the path othe than ant installation directory
Did you install from source or an rpm? You need the ant binary in your $PATH in addition to any _HOME environment vars, but a package should have done that for you, e.g. by having a symlink from /usr/local/bin/ant to /usr/local/ant/bin/ant.
