comment Terminal vs bash?
@Aerovistae: the difference lies in the initialization files Bash runs in the different modes (see my comment on your q). If you run another Bash inside an existing Bash session it isn't going to be a login shell anymore as it would most likely be at the top level.

comment Terminal vs bash?
@Aerovistae: in Bash use echo $SHLVL to see how deeply nested you are. It's the "shell level" and gets incremented when running another shell in the existing one.

comment Terminal vs bash?
The terminal is a container for the shell (or any other program). It provides input (through connected input devices) and displays output on two channels: stdout and stderr. Generally on most *nix systems you should be able to run $SHELL --version to see what shell you are running in. What hasn't been mentioned is that shells like Bash have three major modes: login, interactive, script. Login and interactive are very similar from a user's perspective. Script is when the shell is used to interpret commands in batch.

@dleggas: would be preferable if you pasted the text instead of a screenshot with that text. Advantage of actual text: search engines index it.

comment fakeroot-ng with debootstrap variant fakechroot hangs on makedev
@Braiam: okay, after your remark I did. There seems to be no special handling for fakechroot. What am I missing? Are you trying to point out that I stumbled over a defect in debootstrap?

comment Troubleshoot SSH connection problem
nice catch. That could be a reason. Since I don't use Fedora most of the time, I would not have thought of that.

comment Does using backports on Debian stable compromise OS stability?
They may. Debian is very conservative with upgrading packages. Features often do not get included, whereas bugs get fixed. With backports you get the best of both worlds in a semi-official manner. However, yes: it may destabilize the system. So may running Ubuntu. Yet, people are running Ubuntu on servers. YMMV.

comment Databases backup with cron
In addition to that PATH may not be set properly. In general it is more desirable to create a script. Otherwise sound answer!
