comment What can cause kernel out_of_memory error?
Seems to be a known rsyslogd bug never solved (read the last post). bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=509292 I'd advise to report it again.

@Matthew that's a good idea, much much more easier to use then SVN. Conisder it's the one used for the GNU/Linux kernel development ;-)

comment ctrl-v key on AIX
So, blue is green, sorry for the mistake. I'm doing all the test on a Solaris host at the moment, anyway I've the same issues. I use a ksh88, but I can switch to ksh93. Version M-11/16/88i (ctrl-v on command line). /usr/dt/bin/dtksh print ${.sh.version} Version M-12/28/93d green=$'\e[01;32m' doesn't give me any error on ksh88, but it doesn't expand the escape sequence. On ksh93 $'' the same green="$'\e[01;32m'"

In the swiss qwertz keyboard the [ is on the left of the p (with è and ü holding the alt-gr), still the same issue... I think I'll add a second keyboard with a US layout... much better to work on *nix environments.

comment ctrl-v key on AIX
@Dennis tnx, I've tried it but it doesn't work and I cannot find out why. The only way to use escape sequences inside a VAR is to use the echo... That's really weird. Well my problem is solved, but not my need to know.

Good point Dennis, lnext was set correctly but I was in emacs mode. So I solved the issue as you advised as follow: blue="\\033[01;32m" green="\\033[01;34m" cyan="\\033[01;36m" white="\\033[0m" export PS1="$(echo ${blue})${USER}@$(echo ${green})${HOST%%.*} $(echo ${cyan})${PWD##*/} $(echo ${white}) " THANKS A LOT!

comment Save the emails and attachments in a distribution list, for future reference
I'm not a great Microsoft enthusiast, but I'd simply create a PST file in Outlook, save it on a shared network drive and provide access to it to the new resources and using outlook rules, I'd save new incoming messages also in this PST file.

comment Problem for reading large log files in redhat linux server
With less you can search a string with a /, the string will be highlighted and then you can use F (shift F) to pass to append mode (aka tail -f ), this way, if you are looking for ERROR (/ERROR), every time there will be an ERROR this will be highlighted. Unlucky there is no magic to look at log files if you don't know what you are looking for exactly.

I thought was that as well, but no luck. I found that to do the ^V I must hold the ctrl also while I'm pressing the V, for the [ it still doesn't work. I have a Swiss keyboard so to digit the [ I need to hold the alt-gr key
