comment CVLC: alsa name?
@elbarna That's weird—actually both front and front:CARD=Intel,DEV=0 work on my machine. Are you sure you have that output? If I try an output that could be available but isn't (e.g., on my machine, hdmi is supported by the hardware, but there isn't anything connected to the HDMI ports) I get alsa audio output error: cannot open ALSA device "hdmi": No such file or directory. Can anything else play to that output?

comment My keyboard will not type 'm' or backspace
Does the external keyboard work on another machine? A locale problem would normally be consistent (not sometimes work, sometimes fail). And would probably affect all keyboards. I'd guess you have a hardware problem w/ that keyboard...

comment Splitting port/IP-bound traffic between interfaces
I've added an answer, but the more I think about this—unless p1p1 and p1p2 are connected to different actual connections (e.g., different ISPs), it seems like there is probably a much better way to accomplish whatever you're trying to pull off.

comment Splitting port/IP-bound traffic between interfaces
Ok, I'm afk at the moment, but I'll wrote something up in a few hours if no one else has beaten me to it. Which everyone else is welcome to do, of course.

comment Splitting port/IP-bound traffic between interfaces
So in general, the sending side of a packet, on each hop, decides where to send it. Typically, that decision is based on destination IP address alone, but other attributes (source IP, source/destination port, etc.) are also possible. With the current almost no details in your question, I'm not even sure how it's different than the question you linked to—how does the answer there fall short? Unfortunately, "please tech me IP networking" is beyond the scope of what can reasonably be done in a Unix & Linux answer...

Is this inbound or outbound traffic?

comment Redirecting USB scanner to windows machine
Does SANE have a driver for your scanner? (If you don't know, please give scanner make/model # and USB IDs and hopefully someone else knows). There are apparently both TWANE and WIA drivers for SANE.

comment How is it possible to run VLC when I just removed it?
@plokijuh Triggers are a way for one package to be "notified" when another package is installed/removed. So that processing triggers line just means it was notified. Technical details @ sources.debian.net/src/dpkg/1.17.25/doc/triggers.txt

comment How can I break out of a while loop, from within a nested case statement?
@dhag I think I've improved upon your edit—please take a look. It seems your goal is to rewrite the code into something where your accepted answer fits well, and I think it's closer now.

try to clarify more. Took me a while to figure out why the code was edited... and what the question is...

comment `ack` doesn't show line numbers on a single file
@lcd047 I think you'll have to address your stock questions to Seasoned Advice. Pretty off-topic here.
