comment opensshd / openssh - allow EITHER keypair or password
I'd set the file permissions but not the directory - changing this, it now works.

Yes, bit odd when the man page says....env [OPTION]... [-] [NAME=VALUE]... [COMMAND [ARG]...]

strange. I can't see anything odd in my aliases or environment which might affect this. Got some oddities in my ld.so.conf since Oracle installed here.

drat, RHEL 6.6 uses awk 3.1.7 which has the same problem :(

Thanks larsks - I'm running awk 3.1.5 on RHEL 5 - I will dig further to see if an upgrade is a viable solution

If you have a look at the examples you'll see that in one case I've embedded the awk in shell script. File extensions are not significant on Unix/Linux shells.

comment Identify machine configuration via code
Agreed /proc/cpuinfo is a good place to look for info about CPUs, but user855 asked about disks - lsblk is a better option for that. Where to look for info? tldp, google, /usr/share/doc

comment Linux cache evictions
thanks, nice article. Any idea what book the chapter comes from? However, although it explains how a particular page is prioritized for eviction, it does not really explain why pages are evicted when there is no apparent demand for memory. What controls the process "to shrink the cache to make available more RAM for other uses"? What is it replacing these with?

comment Linux cache evictions
Thanks Joe, however the first 2 options specifically relate to data which needs to be written back to the filesystem (i.e. the write buffer) not data which has been read and has not been changed (the read buffer). The vfs_cache_pressure controls the preference for evicting file metadata relative to file contents.
