comment Unable to Install Skype on Debian Jessy 64 Bit
that's really sad - I was never able to accomplish a single thing with Ekiga. I thought we were open to things that work. Is there a tutorial for Ekiga? BTW, never needed a tutorial for Skype.

comment Monitor com port with strace
it is a read, so this is sent from the serial port. What device do you have attached there?

comment How to run google chrome as root in linux
well I have heard you should not run graphical applications as root and I decided I'd do it just to find out why not. I planned to do it till I found out. This is now 14 years ago.

comment Disk busy is close to 100% and iowait is 0,0% on SunOS, how can it be possible?
oh, you mean because there will still be shadow processes waiting for the blocks? That could be, I did not think so far, sorry.

comment Why isn't this “external” harddrive showing up?
I have seen harddrives toggling because the power supply was just as weak so they would become active, but then only a generic scsi device would show up. Maybe yours gets enough power to attach /dev/sdc (the "full" scsi device) but then it is not accessible. Having said this, my first action would be to remove the HDD, clear syslog with dmesg -c, re-connect the HDD and look at dmesg again if it really shows up.
