I haven't run that yet, but "find /etc/rc*.d | grep gdm" prints nothing. How do I figure out which rc script is launching gdm?

Good info, but one last question: it still says, "DHCPREQUEST of 192.168.1.27 on eth0 to 255.255.255.255 port 67" ... is there any way to force my client to request a particular IP?

About 30 GB, on a network-mounted disk.

comment Fast extraction of a time range from syslog logfile?
It seems you overlooked my third bullet point. The logs are on the order of 30 GB -- if the first line of the file is 7:00 and the last line is 23:00, and I want the slice between 22:00 and 22:01, I don't want the script looking at every line between 7:00 and 22:00. I want it to estimate where it would be, seek to that point, and make a new estimate until it finds it.

comment Fast extraction of a time range from syslog logfile?
I don't mind Ruby, but #1 is not straightforward if you want to do it efficiently in a large file -- you need to seek() to the halfway point, find the nearest line, see how it begins, and repeat with a new midpoint. It's too inefficient to look at every line.

comment How do I tell apt to never upgrade a particular package?
Hmm. That doesn't seem to be working. See edit.
