comment Custom key bindings for vi shell mode, ie, “set -o vi”?
@chishaku you need to prefix Jonah's name with an at sign (@), or he won't get a notification.

comment Which file compression software for linux offers the highest size reduction?
@AquariusPower no, that's a feature of the command-not-found package Ubuntu installs by default. I don't have it installed on my Debian boxes (or Ubuntu ones, it adds an annoying amount of time searching for a package when I just made a typo)

comment Which file compression software for linux offers the highest size reduction?
@AquariusPower Well, bash: kgb: command not found ... it's not a common utility. A little more info about where to get it (say, its home page, package names in common distros, etc.) would be nice. If you want to go above and beyond, how it compares to xz, etc. on common compression tests.

comment extracting the data block pointed to by an inode fails to correspond to the data in the file
I wonder if sync on ext3 only writes to the journal if you're in data=journal mode. In which case time and/or further writes would force it out. So would unmounting the filesystem, I think.

@MichaelMartinez the sticky bit doesn't matter. But I bet you didn't run sync...

@WumpusQ.Wumbley Ah, that makes sense. And it outputs in octal, too. Sounds like a good reason to find a better tool! I have a vbindiff here. And searching finds a dhex. Both are editors, though. Or of course wdiff on xxd output.

comment Determining if a file is a hard link or symbolic link?
@k-Rocker Yes. Then it has a second name somewhere on the partition.

Don't the docs say offsets 40 to 43, not 41 to 44? Anyway, when I try the related procedure for ext4 using ext4.wiki.kernel.org/index.php/Ext4_Disk_Layout#Extent_Tree it works for me. You may find filefrag -v your-file useful, as it'll tell you which blocks. Also, you did run sync, right? To make sure its actually written to disk.

comment Why does Linux store cpu temperatures on so many files?
@yaku Yes, the paths could vary. E.g., a laptop could have a cooling zone for (e.g.,) the hard disk, or the northbridge, or whatever.

comment basic explanation on NSS , LDAP and PAM
@AliAlipourR Correct. PAM can check if a credential such as a password is acceptable almost anywhere.

comment Software RAID10 setup writes small files extremely slowly, is this normal?
No, RAID1, RAID0, and RAID10 do not have to work with the full chunk. Only with the bytes that actually change.

comment Software RAID10 setup writes small files extremely slowly, is this normal?
No, it doesn't. This is RAID10, not RAID5 or RAID6. There is no parity.

comment Relay server for generic TCP traffic?
ssh does port forwarding. That's by far the most common.

comment Why doesn't enabling the rtc interrupt show in the /proc/interrupts?
Good question! Interestingly, if you put in the char buf[8]; for (int i = 0; i < 64; ++i) read(fd, buf, sizeof(buf)) the program takes 1s as expected. So it's working, but the interrupt still isn't counted.

comment running ./install as root
@Slugger ah... please add that 'add exec to the mount options' you found as an answer (yes, it's OK to answer your own question.)

Odd that Windows sees it as a separate disk, though.

comment Port forwarding Configuration for Webcam
Also, looking at your port forward setup screenshot, I'm somewhat confused... Normally there would be a LAN IP address to forward it to in the setup.

Is your mjpg-streamer only listeing on localhost:8121 or on *:8121? netstat -l will tell you. It needs to listen on *, otherwise it won't be accessible except from your machine---even to other machines on your network.
