comment Log output of GNU screen in real time?
FYI calling logfile filename and logfile flush secs changes the behavior of gnu screen logging (i.e. where to save the logfile and what rate to flush to file)... but does not open the logfile and start logging. you still need to do log command or C-a H. Then you will see a message from gnu screen stating the log file has been opened at so and so filename.

comment Debian-Jessie: How do you check iptables status?
Under Fedora 20/21 with systemd when I list the services systemctl list-unit-files --type=service, I still see iptables and firewalld --> compared to Debian-Jessie when I run the same command I don't see any iptables or firewalld. NOT seeing iptables or some sort of firewall service is what confuses me.

comment Debian blu-ray and dvd both have 3 disks, what is the purpose of the blu-ray discs?
I like to install from media because then I can do multiple installs in <1 hour (install it one way... then learn something change my design/requirements... reinstall again... etc). Compared to the net installer which took about 4 hours for one install... over a 56mbps-tested connection.

So... Sounds the bd media require less disks?

comment Debian blu-ray and dvd both have 3 disks, what is the purpose of the blu-ray discs?
I am downloading the bluray "BD-1" and it is now 21GB and still downloading. I have downloaded all the DVD 1 through 3 and they are only about 12 GB.

@FaheemMitha at one point I did have the link to the blu-ray but I switched to another machine. I must have forgot to put the links back in. Thanks for catching that!

comment How do you make apt-get install faster?
I google'd httpredir and from what I read httpredir just replaces the absolute URL in sources.list with a different URL. My /etc/apt/sources.list has deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ stretch main instead of http://httpredir.debian.org/debian so I don't think I have httpredir enabled.

I don't know what is httpredir and I am not sure how to check whether httpredir is on or off.

comment What is the purpose of the lost+found folder in Linux and Unix?
@syntaxerror the reason I arrived at this question was precisely because I was doing a find operation and find kept generating a Permission denied warning. Given this question's answer, I know that lost+found is part of the filesystem and so I can safely ignore the generated warning (but I do wish it didn't produce the warning).

comment Does linux mint use the ubuntu repos or their own repos?
i went to packages.linuxmint.com and click on Mint 17... the list doesn't even have gcc, g++, glibc, boost, etc... so where do they get those from?

comment Does linux mint use the ubuntu repos or their own repos?
I saw some info in wikipedia saying that Linux Mint did in the past use the Ubuntu repos. But I'm not about today's Linux Mint 17 and onward.

comment what is the canonical way to start a daemon in rhel/centos-6 init script?
This is exactly what I was looking for: 1. real documentation 2. guidance on whether I should add an & at the end of the line or not (there are other similar daemon commands that do the & background operation for you)

comment Interrupting rsync with ctrl-c, should I use `--partial` or `--append`?
If I want to interrupt rsync with ctrl-c, I would use --append? Because --partial by itself would not resume.

comment What's the point in redirecting output of grep to /dev/null?
if the documentation is correct "the exit status is 0 even if an error occurred"... I think -q option does not seem appropriate... because you want it to know about the error by checking the exit status.

comment How to check how many lanes are used by the PCIe card?
in your example the output text has both width x16 and width x8. I assume this is interpretted as: the link capacity is width x16 and this device has negotiated width x8?

comment How do you configure the MTU for all network adapters via a script?
Because it's going to be part of an installer script that will be used on many machines.
