comment Move an ext3 fs to a larger mdadm array in one step
I'm going to go ahead and copy then resize, but it seems absurd that better tools are available that self-boot than are available in an installed OS. Is that really the case?

comment Move an ext3 fs to a larger mdadm array in one step
I don't see how this answers the question, unless you mean to say that no, there isn't a way to do what the self-booting tools do from within an installed OS. One step isn't really important, just preferred, and it seems absurd that better tools are available that self-boot than are available in an installed OS. Rebuilding the array for each disk is worse than copying to a new array because it doesn't leave the current state intact to serve as a backup in case the resize fails.

I don't see how this is a reason to use LVM, or how that's relevant, but I don't trust LVM since superuser.com/questions/509872

comment In exim's queue, how can I see when each message will be retried?
Thanks, that does what I need. I made a little Ruby script to automate it - probably too inefficient for large queues, but sufficient for me. (Bah, the lack of multiline comments is not helping) mailq = "/usr/bin/mailq"; exinext = "/usr/sbin/exinext"; #{mailq}.each_line do |q|; puts q; q=q.strip; unless ""==q or q.include?(" "); #{exinext} \"#{q}\"`.each_line do |n|; print "\t\t"; puts n; end; end; end;
