comment Ubuntu : update openssh from 4.7 to a newer version?
Yes, it is possible to do this by adding an entry to /etc/apt/sources.list for an Ubuntu repository that contains the desired version of openssh-server.

comment How Can I Change the Service Boot Order in ubuntu server 10.04?
Since this is Ubuntu, maybe mysql is using Upstart? Look into /etc/init.

comment Best practice for multi Admin root access
Someone wise once said, "Trust, but verify." There's nothing wrong with trusting people to do the right thing, but in many circumstances you need to be able to pinpoint instances where the wrong thing was done (even if only accidentally).

comment Can upstart handle symbolic links to config files?
Perhaps it was a design decision on the part of the Upstart developers to ignore soft links? Anyway, if your repository is on the same partition as /etc/init, try using hard links.

RAID != backup. You will have backups, right?

comment RAID 5 with big SATA disks. Do or don't?
On the contrary, I would expect bigger drives to be faster than smaller drives. All else being equal (rotational rate, number of heads, physical size), a larger drive will have a greater bit density than a smaller drive, which implies that its read/write rate will be higher.

comment Recursively archive small files in document tree on linux?
Warning! If you want to use xargs or find -exec {} with tar, you really should be using tar -A, and NOT tar -c. See my answer for an explanation why.

comment Recursively archive small files in document tree on linux?
Danger! This will fail if/when the list of files grows longer than the maximum number of command-line arguments. xargs executes the given command more than once if it can't fit all the arguments into one command invokation. In this case, each time xargs runs another copy of tar -c, the tarfile will be overwritten, and the final result will contain only the last batch of filenames that xargs received. You really need to do a tar -A instead.

comment Boot problem empty fstab RedHat 3.7
This should work. However, I would wonder how/why /etc/fstab has been truncated. It is possible that the root filesystem is seriously borked, so it might not be a good idea to mount it rw until after a fsck.
