comment Trouble setting up wireless fedora 17
Emphasizing what slm said: Since F17 is past its end-of-life, it no longer receives any sort of updates, including security updates. So if for example someone was to discover a critical SSL vulnerability, you're not going to get fixes. F20 is the current release, and F21 is coming Real Soon Now.

comment control apache referrer to restrict downloads in htaccess file
Please remember that referrer restrictions are only useful for preventing unsophisticated people from accessing a site. Anyone mildly familiar with HTTP will be able to fake the necessary headers and access the server anyway.

@CodeBlue, note that the first solution does, as I indicated, require Bash. If you're using a different shell there might be a different syntax (or there might not be an equivalent feature).

comment Who's consuming my inotify resources?
It was a backup application creating lots of inotify watches, and the solution in the accepted answer helped identify the culprit. However, I wasn't previously familiar with the system call tracing you've demonstrated here. Very cool. Thanks for the information!
