comment Error attempting to use Subversion after upgrade: Segmentation fault
Assuming you are running the official debian package of subversion, you need to report a bug to debian. Also, stop using subversion and move to a modern DVCS, like git, bzr, or hg ;)

comment What is a socket?
tcp/ip is only one kind of socket. There are others that have nothing to do with tcp/ip.

comment Transfering large (8 GB) files over ssh
It looks like CentOS is broken in that they didn't build the 32 bit ssh client with large file support as Mark Plotnick mentioned. You should file a bug report with CentOS.

comment What is the correct way to set up sw RAID1 so either drive boots?
@kiwisan, there is no reason swap has to be on a partition tagged with the swap ID ( in fact linux doesn't care at all about partition type IDs ), so you simply mkswap and swapon the /dev/mdXX raid1 device instead of the partition on the disk.

comment What is the correct way to set up sw RAID1 so either drive boots?
@kiwisan, you need to have a 1 mb bios_grub partition or grub will complain loudly or fail to install.

comment CHROOT: Unable to copy files to jailed users directory from local machine using WINSCP
"This chroot directory is /home/client/ which is owned by root.". Well duh: if root owns their home directory and it isn't world writable, that is why they can't create a file there. Their home directory should be owned by them.

comment Generating a .img from tarball: The /dev/loop devices
@mikeserv, yea, partx works as an alternative to partprobe, but iirc, losetup -P also only works if you booted with the max_parts argument.

comment Generating a .img from tarball: The /dev/loop devices
@mikeserv, yes, I have made sure parted will work correctly either way, but if you want fdisk to work right, then you need to boot with the loop.max_part kernel command line argument mentioned in the script comments. Or you can run partprobe after fdisk to update the kernel.

Did you read the comment right there in the script you pasted about loop.max_part in the kernel command line?

comment fetchmail doesn't get mail from provider
@vartaxe, whatever the POP3 server you are connecting to is where the problem is... I have no idea if that is yours, or your ISP's, or whether it is running postfix or some other software.

comment fetchmail doesn't get mail from provider
@vartaxe, yes... the server says there is a message... but then it says there isn't, so it's broken.
