comment Dump a linux process's memory to file
This one is obsolete (removed at maintainer's request); I installed the old package anyway and it failed with "Input/output error; did you use GCC with another machine's header files?".

comment Dump a linux process's memory to file
That's not sufficient, reading another process needs a combination of /proc/<pid>/{mem,*maps}, ptrace, and some signal handling to avoid hanging the target process.

comment How can I list all installed packages from lenny-backports?

Also worried that he suggests raid as the solution, when experimental software needs backups most.

comment Home-brew automatic tiered storage solutions with Linux? (Memory -> SSD -> HDD -> remote storage)
Using network filesystems for this isn't a bad idea, they tend to mature much faster than kernel patchsets. I wonder if Ceph or DRBD have useful modes for tiered storage.

I'm worried that this guy wants to reduce redundancy for the sake of extra capacity (especially when SSDs are comparatively small and unreliable).
