comment Mounting multiple img files as single loop device
Might be able to do it with device mapper too, but the above is easier.

comment Why is grep -o -w not giving me the expected output on Mac OS X?
Works for me too with GNU grep 2.5.3 on Linux. On OS X 10.5.8 (GNU grep 2.5.1) I can confirm that it does not work.

comment smitty like demo sites?
eh... it can. The "VM" is just called an "LPAR" (logical partition), that's all. Oh, and it runs on IBM hardware, not x86 laptops :)

comment Why do Unix-heads say “minus”?
Yes, except using -r on a file is silly and especially along with -f is dangerous if you make a mistake. e.g. rm -rf /bin/ nessus-fetch.rc. Oops!

comment how to type “smart quotes” (U+201C, U+201D)
Would be a pain if you had to keep holding them for the whole thing :) I'm sure I've seen documentation that mentioned my way, but I have no idea where I saw it.

comment how to type “smart quotes” (U+201C, U+201D)
You only have to hold down ctrl+shift while typing the u. After that you can let go of ctrl and shift and type 201c followed by a space.

You might want hello\_s\+world if there could be more than one whitespace character between them, of course.

comment Reroute one URL
A proxy is probably the easiest way to do this and it could be run on your machine, i.e. it needn't be external. /etc/hosts works because it just affects name resolution, but what you want to do is at a higher level and therefore more difficult. Perhaps you could set up a reverse proxy for website.com (on your machine) and then add website.com in /etc/hosts pointing at 127.0.0.1. Then configure the proxy to know where the real website.com is and to rewrite page1 to page2?

comment Reroute one URL
Please clarify "on a third party server only on my machine". Do you mean that you want to fool your machine (and only your machine) into retrieving page2 when you ask for page1? I assume by "third party server" you mean it is one you do not have control over. EDIT: Never mind, your comment clarifies this. Didn't see it before posting.

comment Kernel segmentation fault (core dumped), how to diagnose?
Could also be bad disk, but RAM is more likely. Power supply could also cause problems.

comment Can I install Linux on Ankya 7802L 266MHz 128MB 2GB laptop?
It seems to have NAND flash rather than a hard drive. Sounds more like a smart phone or ADSL router (with screen and keyboard, of course) than a PC. Something like OpenWrt might be worth a try if it's possible to get a serial console or JTAG cable hooked up.

comment Can I install Linux on Ankya 7802L 266MHz 128MB 2GB laptop?
You would probably need to approach this more like an ADSL router or smart phone than a PC. The board probably has a serial interface and almost definitely has a JTAG interface. So it's likely possible, but probably not just a matter of booting via USB or PXE/tftp. Then again, tftp boot it worth a try. If you can get a serial console hooked up (assuming it has one) you will likely be able to get more useful information.
