comment Follow a pipe using less?
If the input is a pipe, less hangs until the pipe is closed on the other side. That's kind of misleading statement. What happens is that less calls read in a blocking mode, waiting for new data or or pipe's closure.

Being seekable is totally irrelevant to following input stream.

comment Redirect both stderr and stdout to /dev/null with /bin/sh
@StéphaneChazelas Thanks for info. As this is unlikely to be used like that it seems somehow sensible that bash re-purposed this notation for special redirection. If, however >& was not specified in POSIX then it would make more sense for bash to choose this notation instead and be POSIX compliant. Do you see any way out of this mess?

You say it's in xorg-x11-utils yet in the output we see xorg-x11-apps. Why the difference?

comment How does _netdev mount option in /etc/fstab work?
@llua Well I guess /etc/fstab is being consulted during system startup but I don't know what system component manages this part of startup thus I don't know what source code to look for.

comment What is the prefered way of updating all software in a Fedora installation?
I would suggest changing title of this question so that it better matched the question which is being concerned specifically with upgrading from one release to another. Upgrading all software could mean different things thus it's not aligned well with the question.

comment How do I get 'realpath' to find my symbolic link?
It might be possible to do this with an alias (...) It's not possible as alias influences only command line and not scripts. See How to change the default version of Python in Debian 7.5?

comment How do I get 'realpath' to find my symbolic link?
When you run /usr/bin/python, it finds and executes python2.7 in the same directory. This is very confusing statement. If you describe the case where /usr/bin/python is a symlink then please be more specific.
