comment serviceable ext3 partition ruined by fsck
@miniBill, yes - the fs operates totally normally (and comes up as expected after reboots). It's only when forcibly fsck'd that it becomes unrecoverable.

@miniBill, I have pulled in 1.42-9 (from CentOS 7) but it doesn't change the fatal fsck outcome.

Out of curiosity, why the belated downvote?

comment Disable NSS LDAP IPv6 (AAAA) lookups
Thanks. It's not address selection per se that I was interested in, but instead the suppression of AAAA lookups.

comment Alternative to Daemontools (djbtools) to supervise unix processes?
+1 It's worth mentioning that the runsv command from runit supports custom controls, so that a restart could be implemented in terms of a daemon's native control binaries.

comment Overriding RPM public key database
@sciurus, for separation of concerns. It's a bit safer, since "verifier1" cannot do the work of verifier2, it's a bit easier to understand, since "verifier1" has only one set of keys, and, depending on the implementation, it's more portable, since I'd just need to migrate one user and its associated keys.

comment Java default JRE parameters on Unix
+1 Recommend double-quoting $@ to preserve arguments in the face of whitespace. (Sorry, I'd have edited that in myself, but I have repeatedly, comically, and miserably failed the CAPTCHA.)
