comment Arch Linux GRUB install: “EFI variables are not supported on this system”
But what about on a system that doesn't support UEFI? How in the world do I install UEFI-capable GRUB on my USB stick to install Arch on a new UEFI computer if my working computer doesn't support UEFI? There's gotta be a way to do it!

comment Are there any linux terminals which can handle all key combinations?
Seems it's not possible with vte terminals yet (Gnome Terminal, Mate Terminal, Guake, etc) as far as I can tell.

In my terminal, backspace and ctrl+backspace both give ^?. Is there any possible way to distinguish between backspace and ctrl+backspace?

comment Can an arbitrary process read data coming to/from a network port? How?
Thanks for that answer (specifically about observing the data. That's what I'm interested in, in order to prevent that sort of thing and make my server more secure. What type of privileges would a process need in order to "observe" data from any port in the network?

comment Can an arbitrary process read data coming to/from a network port? How?
It's my goal to make sure everything on the network is secure. Ultimately, my server runs a few LAMP, Node.js, and Ruby apps on a few ports, and things like postgresql and mysql are services on other ports needed by those apps, so I'm just trying to make sure those services are secure (e.g. not running as root). I'm new to security, so I'm just wondering if there's any possible security implications of the setup you see in my question. THanks!

comment Block network access of a process?
Thanks MichaƂ Górny. I'm not exactly sure how that all works though. What I'm looking to do is to just boot my machine, and have all programs blocked from network access by default, with the ability to allow some (whitelist) to access the network. I think perhaps AppArmor might be suited for what I want to do.

How do you block all programs by default, then start a specific program with network access (basically the opposite of what you show in your answer (share))?
