comment Remove Ubuntu strings from Mini install
@c.C You'd use a CLI text editor. The a easiest to use is probably nano.

comment How to configure user -> OpenVPN -> Tor -> OpenVPN with Whonix
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because this is Unix & Linux, configuring Windows systems is well outside our scope. You can try Super User, but please review How to Ask a Good Question in their Help Center.

comment Is there parallel wget? Something like fping but only for downloading?
As long as you keep the number sane, it's not a big deal. E.g., at the time you wrote this, Firefox was using 15 connections per server when not using persistent connections (they've since switched to only trying persistent connections, which are limited to 6 per server). Other browsers use similar numbers.

comment SSH from different countries with openvpn configured on pfsense and dd-wrt?
@HaniUmer Unique host keys ought to be generated as part of the install. The privacy risk is that the machine uses the same keys regardless of the network path to it. So, e.g., if you accidentally forwarded ssh from the WAN as well as VPN, someone could easily tell those two IPs are the same machine. Or if you later decide to switch to a Tor service.

comment How to mount btrfs partition?
@Omid1989 I think the only other ways are things like boot up the Pi (or whatever) from the SD card, and set it up as an NFS server. Or recreate the filesystem without that compression option. (Note recreating the filesystem deletes all the data on it.)

comment SSH from different countries with openvpn configured on pfsense and dd-wrt?
@HaniUmer There are plenty of reasons to want privacy besides lawbreaking. Anyway, you'll also want to keep in mind that the ssh host keys will identify those machines regardless of the IP address. Identify as in "that's the probably the same machine at IP A and IP B. Or at least controlled by the same person."

comment SLES 11.3 hangs when running system commands
Also check the kernel logs (e.g., by running dmesg) for any errors.

comment SLES 11.3 hangs when running system commands
What's the history of this system? Has it always had this problem, or did it suddenly start? Also, does it happen if run at the console (not over ssh) as well?
