comment Simple bash script to print prime numbers from 1 to 1000
You'll want python or perl for that, bash isn't exactly a good choice for math stuff.

comment How to install Nginx while Apache running?
This is definitely rpm's dependency system at fault -- "provides: webserver" should not be a blocking conflict.

comment Do both “stat -f” and “cat /etc/fstab” show file system ids?
Not relevant since, as I already pointed out, you were literally looking at the wrong thing.

comment Do both “stat -f” and “cat /etc/fstab” show file system ids?
Google tips: "Linux devices major minor number" "linux GNU stat meaning" "linux device UUID" and so on and so on.

comment Do both “stat -f” and “cat /etc/fstab” show file system ids?
It is, because you asked it for the major/minor numbers of the file new -- which doesn't have either because it's not a block device. The information under 'device' when you run stat new refers to the major/minor of the block device the file is located on.

comment Do both “stat -f” and “cat /etc/fstab” show file system ids?
1) Google is your friend. 2) It does, and it's actually the same number -- major number 8, minor number 4, '0804' when spelled in hexadecimal because hex is properly written in byte form, because 215 is less than 39.

because I looked it up. Major number 8 denotes the first SCSI-like block device; minor number 4 means the fourth partition on that device.

comment linux namespace, How to connect internet in network namespace?
None of this is helping: What are the contents of /etc/resolv.conf ? If ping says 'unknown host' it means it can't resolve www.google.com, which can have a whole set of different reasons.

comment Autostart TeamSpeak via systemd under Ubuntu
"The script works when I run it manually, but not when I try to start it on bootup" often suggests it's expecting an environment value it's not finding.

comment Can I install GNU/Linux on a FAT drive?
Answer is "Technically, yes, but you'll run into a whole slew of issues. Solvable ones, and you'll come out with enhanced understanding of and appreciation for the POSIX filesystem, but it's not going to be a fun experience."
