comment How to passively capture from Unix domain sockets (AF_UNIX socket monitoring)?
By the way, if you have read kristrev.github.io/2013/07/26/… and saw instructions to watch for link up notifications via netlink and wondered whether the diagnostics can provide packet sniffing, the answer is still no. These diagnostics provide statistics via polling, not realtime.

systemtap almost looks like a GDB hack, but then at kernel level. Don't know about audit, I only found a LSM hook that checked whether you are allowed to read/write. (I am currently digging in the Linux kernel source code)

comment How to passively capture from Unix domain sockets (AF_UNIX socket monitoring)?
@StéphaneChazelas Thanks, but since Xorg was started with -nolisten tcp, there is no TCP socket. If all fails, then I will probably revert to using xscope or your neat strace+text2pcap trick. I would still be interested in a generic Unix socket capture though (for just data, not side-channel data).

comment GLX extension not working properly with xvfb
For more information, use Xdummy -h (there is no manpage as of x11vnc 0.9.13-6 on Arch Linux).

comment How do I determine the new size for resize2fs?
@SopalajodeArrierez You are right, a capital K was missing. Without this letter, resize2fs should complain in my case as the size is larger than the actual disk.

comment vim - open file and goto line number using <filename>:<line nbr>:
The references file-line plugin has some issues, including brokeness when tab pages are in use. vim-fetch does what file-line does, but better.

comment Could Apt delete packages that are need by software that users have installed from source?
apt-get in Debian Jessie does not have the manual option. For these manual vs. auto(matic) installation hints I have been using apt-mark instead. (apt-mark manual pkg, apt-mark showmanual pkg, apt-mark auto pkg, etc.)

comment How creation of new USB device file in /dev/bus/usb/001/ directory work?
@Trismegistos With some kernels these are printed in the kernel log (dmesg) upon inserting a USB device. Otherwise you can use the lsusb command.

comment Why can't another user access my file when it's a full path?
Are you sure it is the same file? Haven't you prefixed one with the python program? Is the path really correct?

comment Truncating the precision of a date
What systems are you running those date commands on? At least GNU date (coreutils) prints just the seconds (00..59) without nanoseconds. Does the standard date -R output fulfil your needs?
