Ahh, then it's the msys tools that were badly built.

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.

comment tar causes USB disconnects & reconnects
You have some really broken hardware somewhere... I'd check the power supply to that usb port; it may brown out when the sd card load goes up from activity.

comment Why is dd so slow with a bs of 100M
Also you shouldn't be putting wear and tear on the drive and filling all of its erase blocks by writing it all with zeros... if you want to erase the drive, use hdparm --security-erase to direct the drive to wipe itself.

Isn't that slow? Well that depends entirely on how fast this drive is supposed to be, which we have no idea.

comment rsnapshot taking a long time to backup, are the scripts correct?
Umm... your subject line said you are using rsnapshot, but the snippet of script you posted shows nothing of the sort. That smbclient command just downloads everything from that server share using tar as a transport. You really should show the whole script.
