comment Failed to restore file with extundelete
In the future store stuff in revision control, and backup the repository. (I recommend git or mercurial).

shutdown and reboot are very busy times with regard to disk write. At least a lot more than idly sitting there.

Is this an init script, to go in /etc/init.d?

comment Would you store the Makefile for later uninstallation?
You can use stow to manage each application stored in a separate location. It then sym-links them all into a common location.

comment Chromium does not Render webpage (arm)
Is android Unix, I know it has a Linux kernel, but I think this site uses “Linux” to mean “Gnu+Linux”.

A better question may be “how do I move it to tty7”?

Someone once asked Spike Milligan “what are you doing here”, he answered “everyone has to be somewhere”.

@Gnouc In that case make sure files have no space in them, and then remove the -0 from xargs. Or install Gnu tools.

There are eps transform tools, that is what eps was designed for. I can not remember the names of the tools.

comment How to correctly enable sudo for user in Fedora 20
su is an older command that does what you want, but sudo was written so we don't need to pass root password to all the users. You should be able to configure PAM to let you login using a different system (ssh passphrase for example), then you would need 2 passwords to become root, but still your own passwords.

comment How can I recreate a VT100 environment and connect an Esprit 250C Terminal?
I don't know why you would use RJ.. Your PC and the terminal device both use 9pin sub miniture D. You need a fully connected null modem. gnd—gnd, rx—tx, tx—rx, rts—cts, cts—rts, dtr—dsr/dcd, dsr/dcd—dtr, have a look here en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Null_modem#Wiring_diagrams
