A lot of the LVM snapshot issues are fixed if you use thin pool volumes, supposedly.

comment Live USB repeatedly gives error 'Failed to load ldlinux.c32'
Does the USB stick work to boot a different machine? Curious if it might be something weird about the machine.

comment How to remove duplicate files using bash
Fair enough. Main point of the comment was to point out fdupes.

comment How to remove duplicate files using bash
well, MD5 collisions are known and generateable with fairly modest amounts of CPU power, and there is a command you can substitute in to use SHA-512 instead, so...

comment How to remove duplicate files using bash
There is already an fdupes command which will do this... Not sure which distro you're on, but its in a Debian package with the same name. Also, MD5 is a fairly weak hash nowadays; you probably want to use sha256sum or better sha512sum (which should actually be faster on normal PC hardware)

comment What are the oldest irc clients I can still use on linux ?
ircii 2.8.2 was in Debian 0.93, circa 1995. I wouldn't be surprised if you could get that booted in a VM... archive.debian.org/debian/dists/Debian-0.93R6

comment Find result used in if statement
@ABC it's surprising but [ is actually (at least conceptually) the name of a command you're running; its the same thing as test. The stuff after [ is actually a bunch of arguments to the [ command. Even the ] is an argument to that command. It's not part of the if syntax.

I'd guess the easiest way to be iptables. Only allow smtp from your Barracuda, localhost, and possibly your LAN.
