comment How to disable DHCP (static IP)?
@Karlson What I think he means is that he's got one router and one actual desktop comp that dualboots windows and linux, and in windows he just assigns a static IP.

comment How to disable DHCP (static IP)?
@Zeno Yeah, that's one way to do it. The wrong way -- it technically works, but only because there aren't any other systems on your LAN and you're not generating collisions. Telling your router to assign a specific, static IP to the MAC address of your computer is the right way to do it.

It's called network-manager in the apt package database.

comment What is the fastest way to write all sectors on a drive?
Of course, if the data on the device is already discounted as "lost", the low level erase isn't going to be able to do much more harm...

comment Find command: how to ignore case?
Also, since you're specifically looking for a file you can probably shave another couple of ticks off that with the -type f flag so it won't bother looking at the name if the inode is a directory. But that's pedantic levels of optimization...

Just as a friendly bit of advice, if any of the answers below turned out to be the one you needed, please accept one. It's good etiquette and it makes people more likely to try to answer your questions.

comment Monitor what is being sent to /dev/null?
Possible, but as the answers and comments describe it's /very/ much not a good idea.

Might want to add which tftp server you're using, and its configuration file.

I think resolvconf is being phased out of squeeze in favor of NM.

comment SSH: I have a *.pem private key. How to create a SSH connection using it?
It'd probably help if you posted the "same error" you got. Also, if possible, add an excerpt of the SSH log (usually /var/log/auth.log; if you have admin privileges on the server, try to up the verbosity of SSH's logging while you're at it) to the question. Help us help you.

comment Is it possible to execute scripts in BIND based on lookup
Note that logging all bind queries is a severe performance drain. I would not recommend this on any production-level authoritative server.
