comment Can I accelerate swap by using multiple harddrives?
Also, if you wind up regularly using swap, then you can get much better performance improvements out of increasing ram memory than you'd ever get optimizing swap distribution.

comment Scientific Linux 6.3 hangs on suspend if using a samba share
Just to clarify, if a notebook mounts the samba share, are any of the other notebooks affected in that way? IE, the ones that don't have the share mounted, or didn't play any videos from it yet?

comment Where does gnome-session/gnome-shell store its configuration?
Like I said, debian went through a few iterations in unstable to get it right. I started working with gnome3 in sid when it first came out, and somewhere along the line something broke.

Thanks for the reminder; looks like my actual problem is in gnome-shell rather than gnome-session. Question edited.

If his solution worked, you might want to accept his answer as valid so he gets the bounty. :)

Yes, but that'd nuke the settings for all sorts of other programs I am still using.

comment Is it possible to change password database file(/etc/passwd) in linux?
Just want to point out that despite its name, /etc/passwd does not in fact contain the actual passwords or even the hashes -- shadowed passwords have been a de facto standard since before I started using unix two decades ago.

3. spend the rest of that system's lifetime dealing with the occasional breakage of random other stuff that expects /etc/passwd to exist...

comment What are the recommended ways of defending a remote *nix install from a hamfisted admin?
Backups, backups, backups. And use sudo for that slight additional edge of asking for your password again before executing a command.
