comment Segfault debian server
Enable core dumps so you can get something to debug. Those pathetic kernel log messages about segfaults are no substitute.

comment WSGI cannot access a file, but permissions are correct
Since you're looking at an access() failure, I wonder if the real uid doesn't match the effective uid. Look at the Uid: line in the process's /proc/PID/status and if it has different numbers in the different fields, that'll be a clue.

comment WSGI cannot access a file, but permissions are correct
It should be noted that EAGAIN is not a permissions issue. It's just a "buffer is empty right now" indicator. It appears quite often in the strace output of programs that are working perfectly. How sure are you that this particular EAGAIN is connected to your problem?

comment What can go wrong with a GLIBC upgrade?
As long as you have some bootable removable medium (USB flash stick, CD, DVD) the machine isn't truly bricked. Rescue will be possible by reinstalling glibc from there. To avoid any danger, you could try compiling a new glibc as a non-root user with --prefix=$HOME then point your LD_LIBRARY_PATH at it and see if it works. As a non-root user you can't screw the whole system no matter how bad you mess up. If that does work, change it to --prefix=/usr/local/bleeding-edge-glibc and document LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/bleeding-edge-glibc/lib as a requirement for the research project

comment Is /dev in linux virtual?
/dev/shm is a separate thing. Files in there are not created by udev, but they are temporary (not meant to survive a reboot).

Well, that would at least make it possible to answer the question, if someone knows what sort of text you can put in there. Let me ask the obvious question: you are compressing the files before textifying, right?

What is "Text-based storage"?

comment Bash Redirection Encoding
It all depends on how far you're willing to stretch the definition of "text" (i.e. why are you doing it) and how standardized you want the format to be.

comment Is there a work-around for “File size limit exceeded” errors when using db_dump185
aIt could be a Large File Support thing. Is the dump file about 2 gigs when it dies? If that's the problem, you should be able to work around it by outputting to a pipe. db_dump185 comment.db | cat > comment.dump.

comment keep ssh connection alive and persistant while switching network interface connections
If you get the same IP address both ways, then this should Just Work. If not, it's pretty much impossible.

comment Configure gateway for two NICs through static routeing
Of course you can add multiple default routes, the question is why you would want to. Normally you want the default to be the interface that points toward the Internet. We have very little information to go on, so it looks like you're doing something weird for no reason. Can you back up and give a bigger picture of your network design? And also, tell what distribution you're using so we can point you to the correct config files (like /etc/network/interfaces for the Debian family)
