comment Chef/Ruby: use “each do” block variable with node attribute
Ah, but you aren't using String Interpolation, though it appears you want to. Wrote an answer.

comment Chef/Ruby: use “each do” block variable with node attribute
#{variable} is used for string interpolation, and it is not in quotes. I am not running the code, but I am surprised it is not raising errors for you as the rest of that line from the octothorpe on should be considered a comment.

OK, then where is it referenced in the code to locate that ISO file?

comment How to achieve ubuntu automatic installation with help of USBDRIVE?
What errors are you getting when it breaks. And you sometimes have it work without a problem (as indicated with your "sometimes"), is that true?

comment Change ssh ControlPath with host-specific declaration
Is it perhaps because the Host * is being accepted as it covers all possibilities and so never sees the following listed configurations? This is what happens with globbing.

comment Couldn't install git-flow on ubuntu 10.04
"E: Couldn't find package git-flow" means that the package is not on the server as you described it.

comment How well does authorized_keys scale?
Gerrit boasts of an optimized ssh key lookup though, stating that it should be faster than Gitosis. I did not know about Gerrit project.

comment How well does authorized_keys scale?
Perhaps, but they are pretty vocal about what they are working on, and other larger sites servicing public git repositories using gitolab have not mentioned it. Not worth much weight, of course, but I have not seen any mention of it.

comment How do I force a specific network interface to be used? and if it failed switch to other network?
You might set up bridging in your network settings, with the theory that if one failed, the other would at least continue working. I am not sure if this will work, so not posting it as an answer though, don't have the equipment to test it.

comment Linux- Permission denied?
If you view the permissions of that file, you would see a l instead of a dash. It might look similar to the permissions you have shown for neo4j, except it would be 'lrwxr-xr-x' perhaps. The 'l' on the left indicating that it is a link to a file (that may not exist if you moved it.)

comment Linux- Permission denied?
What does /sbin/insserv point to? Is it a symlink, but you moved where it needs to look?

comment Show number of open files on Ubuntu
It will take time... you have to allow the lsof to continue until it is done.

comment Run Git as Apache on remote server
They gave you root access, so in effect it is NOT the only login the gave you. They gave you the keys to the kingdom. So now you can set it up correctly.

comment make a cronjob wait for previous rsync job to finish
If the job potentially takes longer than one hour to complete, and you are scheduling it closer than the duration, then you are mis-scheduling the job. Either figure out how to cut down on the time or increase the interval between jobs. If you are continually doing remote backups, you might want to consider a new disaster recovery plan.

comment Linux: find thin server running on port 80 and kill it
I would start the process of debugging by not having the thin daemonized. So don't use the -d option. Before doing that, note the processes running, run your thin application, and take another inventory of the processes running. This is Ruby so it is not surprising that you see Ruby processes. Check the PIDS on those processes and you will see which one is the parent and which are the children.

comment How to kill a process in Linux if kill -9 has no effect
You mention Ruby here, and I am curious what the pieces are that you are dealing with. I was using Webrick and had a similar experience, I started using Rack::Server.new and the processes were handled correctly, and would thereafter respond to control-c.

Probably better as a comment. (You will be able to comment at 50 Rep).

comment Quad Core but Single Core on task manager
The virtual machine part probably should be in the original question. If you don't give the environment, kind of hard to help. Feel free to visit that edit link.
