comment Install Debian kernel header files 3.4.90+ via terminal for ARMHF
Sorry, i know very little about arm hardware...and amongst what little i do know is that there is not much consistency or standardisation in arm linux devices, every manufacturer does things differently. your best best is to google for your device's brand and model with 'linux kernel'. BTW, if you downloaded the linux image from www.armhf.com, do they also have the matching kernel source or headers? or an updated version with RTL8188 support?

comment Unable to load the kernel module 'nvidia.ko'
how much is your time worth? for ~$25 you could have an nvidia gt210 that just worked, and it has a max resolution of 2560x1600 and (depending on brand) DVI, VGA, HDMI and/or DisplayPort connectors.

The limit is not in the driver, it's the hardware. if you want higher resolution, you'll have to install a GPU card in one of the slots. If you don't care much about high-speed 3D graphics, get a ~$25USD GT210 or ~$40USD GT610. The nouveau driver built-in to the kernel should be fine for most 2D desktop use and light 3D use with those cards, or you could install the proprietary nvidia driver - oracle linux probably has a dkms package for it.

btw, in English "immediately before" means nothing else before or in between. so "spaces and dashes immediately before (" means only the spaces and dashes without anything else between them and the (. Just saying "before" is fairly loose and ambiguous, but qualifying it with "immediately" is very precise.

sed is often a lot faster and simpler to use than awk but has its limitations....and that's where awk or perl should be used.

if you don't mean immediately before, then what do you mean? you need to be much clearer in expressing your goal.

comment How to get the title of the media playing in VLC or other media players using CLI?
the dbus interface seems to be reasonably well documented for VLC, though. specifications.freedesktop.org/mpris-spec/latest/index.html

dbus method here: askubuntu.com/questions/405931/… (but IMO the trouble with dbus is that most apps' usage of it is, for the most part undocumented, and often changes without warning. you have to do a lot of querying and testing to find out if the data you want is even available, let alone how to get it)

comment ftp one line connection
The ancient and primitive ftp client is what you have to use on archaic systems where you don't have any other choice. On modern systems, or on any system where you can either install it as a package or have the privs and resources to compile and install the source code, use lftp as @DopeGhoti suggested.
