comment lost superblock in md raid
Yes, I am able to mount. And exactly I will move the data to a new RAID. I think this would be best.

comment /var House Keeping
Logrotate does not do any Voodoo. In general it moves the log away and restarts the service writing the logfiles. You can do that yourself without any program to install.

comment Functional shell scripting
@xralf I second "glenn jackman". When you start with shell scripting, Python looks strange for you. In case you start with Scheme, everything else - apart from Lisp - is looking strange. The shell mainly has this syntax because you do not use built-in functions, but external programs and pass arguments to them.

comment Functional shell scripting
The shell is making intensive use of piping, a concept that many other programming languages are missing. So, the question on the other hand is, why do you prefer your form? There are other concepts that might fit as well. A question "Why does the shell not behave like perl/python/fortran/c++/scheme/younameit is leading nowhere.

Which Linux-Kernel do you use? It works pretty well for me on SLES with kernel 2.6.16.60-0.69.1-smp

I will give it a try. Thanks a lot. But it seems to lack support for ogg-files.

Yes it is supported. See your podcast of choice, a graphical tool to do that would be EasyTAG - easytag.sourceforge.net
