comment XFS or EXT4 which is better
It depends what you are doing with it (sequential or random reads or writes, creating or deleting files) and what its sitting on top of (raw partitions, software RAID, hardware RAID, LVM). Any answers you get suggesting one or the other are not based on any facts since you've provided no information about the context.

comment how to do formatting of a file in unix
Since the file appears to be a mix of different formatting conventions, it would be helpful if you stated what the format was (although the example is useful too). Further writing a script to rearrange one file is a massive overkill - do you have multiple input files you want to merge?

comment Permission denied after changing password (password is correct)
1) yes 2) yes, I can su $USER as root 3) exactly as expected (all groups valid) 4) ~ is drwxr-x---, .ssh is drwx------ 5) create yes, login no. 6) yes 7) I don't know what you mean. Can I direct your attention to the log entry above which answers most of these questions already.

Thanks Prem but accounts are stored locally, and yes I can exit from the sudo shell. I've finished for the day now. I didn't see anything unusual with verbose ssh.

rsyslogd is running, I've not changed anything in sshd_config, but it may have been changed after installation. Certainly the PAM files have been modified.

SyslogFacility is AUTHPRIV, rsyslog.conf is set to send auth.* to /var/log/messages, but nothing is getting added to this file (and I am attempting to access the right box as per the audit.log entries above)

comment bash iterate file list, except when empty
@cuonglm: you were first to point out I should be using nullglob (getting the scriptname back was a result of the glob being expanded before the ls command was executed, hence 'ls *.zip' became simply 'ls'). Can you reporst your answer as a coment and I'll tick it off.
