comment How many inodes do I need to access to read a file?
@graphtheory92 The root directory is just another inode. However it is a very important inode. When you mount a disk partition, its root partions inode is referenced in place of the inode of the mount point on the disk you are mounting to.

comment Is a directory removed when its number of hard links becomes 0?
If the directory is a sub-directory. the entry .. will point to the parent. As a special case the root directory link points to itself. This allows cd ..\.. and similar commands to work as expected no matter where you are. You can test with the stat command.

comment ext4 - An entire directory disappeared?
If the file got renamed to have a period as the first character it won't show up in an normal ls command. Try ls -a. Using du on the containing directory may show your file as well.

comment ntp server problems. It is panicking and then I am 3hours ahead
@nass If you are using NTP with the hardware clock you need to set the hardware clock to UTC. If you loose network connectivity, ntp may sync to the local clock, but it never sets it. /dev/rtc is the interface to one type of real time clock, but many motherboards use a different clock inteface.
