comment How to set maximum directory size on apache server?
Now you're making it more confusing. Are you limiting the folder size, or the traffic per day?

comment Mounting a USB Mass Storage Device in Debian
@user907560 At the outset, your question is indistinguishable from end-user support and doesn't provide the information we need to know that the flash drive works elsewhere. This further information helps a lot. +1.

comment Mounting a USB Mass Storage Device in Debian
This would be on-topic for SuperUser or Unix & Linux, but it doesn't fit here and since I can't discern whether those fires are wrong or really what you're asking about in regards to, "Without using the Internet" (which you're on), I'm not keen to migrate.

comment Debian package bigger than the source files
If an answer was correct, you should select the checkmark next to it. That indicates the problem has been solved. If you solved it, but no answers provided were helpful, then you should write your own and select that.

If a .git path is entering your package, you should rewrite the packaging scripts to ignore any unexpected ".*" files.

comment Privileges for ifconfig
@vonbrand That's an old view of Unix systems. In modern Linux, UID 0's power is only traditional as far as function goes. Capabilities are the defining matter, so any user can be given all or portions of that power. Similarly, a system can have a root / UID 0 user with no special privileges.

comment Privileges for ifconfig
... but that doesn't answer if there's a way to run it without being root. The Linux capabilities model is the defining matter in that. While root is traditionally granted these rights, other processors or users can be blessed with capabilities such as through SELinux contexts or as demonstrated by Celada using setcap (being rather like making a executable setuid, but for capbilities)
