comment Importance of fsck at boot with Journalled filesystems?
psusi - what have you been smoking? " Disks do not report writes as completed before..." - yes they do. "enable the write cache, which is disabled by default" - not on any disk I've ever configured. "barriers are used to prevent reordering" - but you said I was "conflating ordering with barriers"

comment handling right click with single button mouse (tablet)
For simplicity I'm probably going to go down the noVNC route - which makes it much simpler to swap the event strings in Javascript, or use xmodmap -e 'pointer=3 2 1....' serverside (with a timer to restore)

comment Ethernet Sniffing Embeded Device
My vote would be for wireshark. You might also want to get hold of a cross over cable in case the device acts as a hub / router / bridge.

comment How can I autostart GDM on Fedora 15?
Did you check what runlevel (fedoraproject.org/wiki/Systemd#How_do_I_change_the_runlevel.3F) you were booting into? Not familiar with upstart on Fedora, but I believe chkconfig can still be used to add/remove services from runlevels.

comment What is the appropriate value of vm.swappiness when using zram?
"increasingly fast"? On the fly compression has been performing better than direct disk I/O for more than the past decade (its never going to be faster than memory access - that's not the point)

...and if so what's the permissions? Also what does SHOW VARIABLES LIKE 'socket'; report? Are you using the same username to connect using the mysql cli as php?

comment Is there a config file for telnet that's similar to .ssh/config?
What is it that you're wanting to configure? What is it that can be configured in ssh which overrides / is equivalent to the data in /etc/hosts?
