comment How can I disable the shutter sound of gnome-screenshot?
cameras have to make that sound so you don't illegally make upskirt photos with them. gnome devs are just complying with the law.

comment Is there a way to circumvent normal installation proceedures and manually install (M1400 Motion Computing Tablet)
maybe. depends on what kernel+modules are in the image that you are dd-ing. and that's a huge problem right there - where are you going to find a disk-image file suitable for your tablet pc? Overall, your question is trying to solve the wrong problem - you should be asking "Why can't I get an installer cd/usb to boot?"

true enough, but if it is client-side, there's not much you can do on the server to solve that.

@Garrett - there are many reasons not to use [t]csh, that's just one of the minor/trivial reasons.

comment clonzilla + what the password for debian linux
Tomasz is correct - the root account on the clonezilla live-cd does not have a password. There are various methods by which it is possible to set a root password (and even start sshd at boot) but by default it has none.

comment How to tell rsyslog to create log file if not there?
as i said, from rsyslog's POV, that file handle still exists. it will not close and re-open/re-create the log files until you tell it to by restarting it or with a HUP signal. rsyslog does what you tell it to do, no more. more importantly, the problem is not in what rsyslog does, but in your understanding of rsyslog's behaviour and why it behaves like that.

comment Retrieving two matches from repeated pattern
the first grep isn't needed any more - awk is already ignoring all but the matching lines.

comment Retrieving two matches from repeated pattern
you could pipe grep's output through sed to transform the = to a : (or vice-versa), then you would have the same field separator for both lines.

as i suspected, a bug in the script rather than a problem with replacing an init.d script.
