comment word wrap in ssh session not working with grep
1) the rightmost command in a pipe is the one displaying on your screen. The left command outputs to the right command. 2) For less, "folding" is the default, unless you specify the -S or --chop-long-lines option. If you did not write those options in your command then check alias to see if your shell has an alias that adds it, or echo $LESS to see if you have the option in your default command environment variable.

comment Login failed when using “lftp” with correct credentials
Does the user or password have any characters other than letters or numbers in it? Have any special shell characters such as $ been escaped?

comment 3disk in raid 1 using half/half
Software RAID 1 requires an even number of devices. If the partitions had been the same size, then it would have been easy enough to fail sdb1 and sdc2 out of their respective arrays and create a third array using those two partitions to get that space back.

comment Ansible/Capistrano with fixed sudo command (“sudo su -”)
@okelet unless there's something specifying !su - -c that sudoers line should allow any command starting with /bin/su -

comment Ansible/Capistrano with fixed sudo command (“sudo su -”)
Can you at least put a wrapper script that you can run with ansible's sudo_exe option and convert the execution to sudo su - -c ... (exercise for the reader: handle all the options ansible might use on sudo) or no changes to the server at all?

comment Apache returning incorrect mime type for meta-data.xml.md5
My guess is that apache is incorrectly deciding that MD5 is a Content-encoding (see also: the rest of the page about how mod_mime handles multiple extensions)

comment OpenVPN server cannot ping client (routing/iptables issue?)
Once the tunnel is up, can the Windows client ping the OpenVPN server over the tunnel and get a response back? If so, then the tunnel's working both ways and it's probably a firewall problem, likely Windows's firewall.

What is your grub configuration for GRUB_SERIAL_COMMAND? The speed and connection parameters to use should be specified in it.

comment LVM on disk with no partition table. How to reallocate free space with fdisk?
It's not clear what you are trying to do. If you want a new filesystem you should use lvcreate to allocate a new logical volume within the available physical volume. If you want to remove the free space from the physical volume and turn it into a standard partition, that's going to be a lot more work.

I wonder if a separate firmware update could be required for the NIC?

comment How to make exim4 on Debian safe?
Blocking mail forged from your own domain is one thing. The assumption that "real mail hosts" are always in the MX server list is wrong.

comment How to make exim4 on Debian safe?
This sounds like a really bad idea, especially for mail from domains where the MX record points to an outsourced spam filter server (or even just a spam "firewall" appliance server), and some other server handles outgoing mail. Or all mail from Gmail.
