comment Debian 8 - Run scripts after boot
Concur with @FerencWágner -- please update this answer with the error output. We need those details if we're to be any help.

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.

comment Do both “stat -f” and “cat /etc/fstab” show file system ids?
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.

Because it's another way of describing the device node.

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."

comment How to get RailroadTycoon 3 working on Ubuntu properly?
Equally likely to be a problem with RT3 -- I know I'm having trouble getting it to work in Win7. Doesn't seem to deal well with high native resolutions and was never designed to not work fullscreen.

comment CPU optimized compiled debian packages
The first flaw in your assumptions is that optimizations never introduce new bugs. The second flaw in your assumptions is that compiling with all possible iterations of optimizations is even remotely worth the hassle.

I'll let this one slide because it is a correct answer, but you'd get more upvotes if you explained how the command works.

comment some help with this command, not sure what it does?
Not quite irreversible, but you'd either need good backups or a bit of help from the NSA for data recovery.

comment Why, still in modern GUI-based Linux distros, is it common to use the command line?
@LesterBonker The assertion that a CLI is just an emulated console used on graphics hardware is factually untrue for most unices. And in fact, when I'm remote administering my servers I'm much more likely to use ssh than to fire up an entire remote desktop.

comment installing popcorn-time.se on linux kali 2.0
Install a real desktop-purpose distribution. any desktop-purpose distribution. Remember, just because you can use a surgical scalpel or a chainsaw to cut meat doesn't mean that either of them are really the best idea to put next to your plate at dinner.

comment installing popcorn-time.se on linux kali 2.0
Take a good look at all the utter noob questions tagged kali-linux on this site, far too many of which boil down to "I'm trying to use a specialized penetration testing tool as a desktop OS and it doesn't work right, help!" and you might get an inkling.

comment installing popcorn-time.se on linux kali 2.0
To wit, in order to, as you call it -- and the fact that that's what you call it tells me you don't have the vaguest clue what you're doing -- "./configure && make && make install", you'd have to install and set up a full compiler and build suite on a system that lacks both of those and does not have package management capabilities to easily install them. There's a chicken and egg problem there and you don't have the ability to work your way through them or we wouldn't be having this discussion.
