comment Repartitioning harddisk
The size to resize2fs now sets the size to 20G so it agrees with lvreduce, but that is subtracting 30G, not 20G.

comment Linux reboot out of memory
It is perfectly normal for buffers/cache to consume nearly all of memory. Your problem is unrelated to memory.

comment swap space allocation vs swaptotal
What? "Installation designation"? The size is however big you made it. What does cat /proc/swaps and fdisk -lu say?

comment Why can't a regular user delete a btrfs subvolume
The 3.2 kernel is now over a year and a half old. If you want to play with experimental filesystems, you might want to run a more up to date kernel.

Not really sure what you are asking other than "can I use VM".

comment Remove ^M character from log files
The OP does not have a CR+NL, he has a CR followed by more text. dos2unix won't remove such a CR because it isn't immediately followed by a NL.

comment Remove ^M character from log files
@slm, yes... they shouldn't be in the log file in the first place. Well written programs check that they are actually using a terminal before spitting out terminal control codes.

comment Remove ^M character from log files
He said that sed worked, not dos2unix. dos2unix looks for CR + NL and replaces them with just NL. He doesn't have CR + NL. Using sed to remove the CR also leaves you with both the before and after text concatenated on one line, so it won't look right compared to what you see on a terminal.

comment Remove ^M character from log files
This does NOT answer the question because the OP does not have a file with DOS line endings. He has terminal output that uses the ^M to go back and modify the previous output on the line.

comment How can I edit symlinks?
That does get you the atomic replacement, though you still are doing a replace rather than edit ( new link has a new inode number ).

comment Are short-lived files flushed to disk?
This answer is unrelated to the question. The question is about whether the data is written to disk. Delayed allocation is about when the location where the data will be written is chosen. The benefit of delayed allocation is also not speed of small temporary files, but better fragmentation control since the size of the file is known at the time the blocks are chosen.
