comment Why my 3TB disk shows an actual size of ~800 GB with several tools except smart tools?
@user129107, hrm.. then there's some other kind of bug in your kernel. Try using a stock distribution kernel instead of a custom built one.

The problem isn't with fdisk or GPT; the kernel thinks the drive is only 800gb.

comment How to get over “device or resource busy”?
@foobarbecue, normally those are only advisory locks and the man page at least seems to indicate they are only for read/write, not unlink.

comment Why does a linux guest consume 100% of the host CPU under VirtualBox when the guest appears idle?
@amphetamachine, no, since the guest can't change the frequency of the real cpu.

comment How to commit a directory in CVS?
You really need to upgrade to a modern DVCS, or at least subversion. CVS is just god awful. Anyone using it more recently than a decade ago needs their head examined.

Faster at what? Booting up? If it's a sever that is just going to stay on then what does that matter?

comment Why does my RAID 1 NAS have to “synchronize”?
@SteveBennett, there is no such thing as empty. Disks always contain some kind of data, whether you assign any meaning to it or not. Yes, a force-shutdown would trigger a full resync, unless you have bitmaps enabled ( but they cause a slight loss of write performance )

@SteveBennett, there is no way the initial sync only took a few minutes for a TB+ size array. 6-18 hours maybe, not minutes.

comment what is the purpose of cp -s?
@muru, you can't hard link a directory, which is why cp -l was created: it hard links every individual file in the directory instead. The question though, is why does that work recursively, but doing the same thing with symlinks doesn't.

comment How can I examine RUNLEVEL from a bash script on Rasbpian?
If this is a shell script you are running manually then that is why: RUNLEVEL is exported by the rc.init system to the scripts it runs, it is not generally available in a regular login shell.

comment Why do we need to mount on Linux?
@Luaan, nope, I'm talking about the NT kernel ( all versions ). You can not ask for anything like a mount, you just open, for example, \Devices\PhysicalDisk0\Parittion1\foo.txt, and that triggers a search for a suitable filesystem if one has not yet been bound to the device. The drive letter concept is implemented at the win32 api level as a symbolic link, such as \DosDevices\C: -> \Devices\Physicaldisk0\Partition1. Assigning the drive letter / creating that symlink is not activating a filesystem anywhere; it just creates a name in the win32 namespace that points to the disk device.

comment Why do we need to mount on Linux?
@orion, mounting on Windows isn't just done automatically by the shell or something, like on a linux desktop. There really is no concept of mount on Windows. You can't specify a directory where it should be mounted, or mount options or even that it should be mounted. You do like the OP suggested and just try to open the windows equivalent of /dev/sda1/foo.txt, and if there is no filesystem bound to that block device, the kernel asks all loaded filesystem drivers to take it over and try to provide access to that file.

Why would you bother with the pendrive? Just install on the raid array.
