comment Using DD for disk cloning
@Tozz: You can improve the compressibility of a filesystem image by filling the filesystem with a file filled with 0's, syncing it to disk, then deleting it. dd if=/dev/zero bs=1M of=/balloon; sync; rm /balloon (Modulo extra intelligence in the filesystem layer.)

comment Using DD for disk cloning
I should also note that adding 'bs=1M' to the dd command will usually greatly improve speed.

comment How to copy a large number of files quickly between two servers
@user11749: There are two -f options in that command, both of which are required. Are you talking about passing -f to ssh to have it go to the background?

comment How to debug Trac?
enable logging (to file, debug level); that should give a traceback that will have useful clues.

comment Is it possible install one instance of Trac for multiple independent projects?
You can pass all the required arguments to trac-admin. So yes, a simple wrapper will let you create new trac instances from a web page. Might look at coderesort.com as well; one of the other Trac devs runs that.

Can you explain why TracEnvParentDir is not an option?

comment Intercepting SMTP traffic
You need clarify your meaning of "intercept". Are you wanting to record the traffic, or are you wanting to prevent it from leaving the network?

BTW, it's "Trac", not "TRACK".

comment Configure SVN Server and Trac on Ubuntu
As a heads-up, if Ubuntu is still shipping Trac 0.11.1 and Python 2.6, you should update your version of Trac. There are some known bugs with that combination.

comment How to run script on interface up/down?
On my F11 system, /sbin/ifup-local doesn't exist. What package does it belong to on yours? (rpm -qf /sbin/ifup-local)

comment How to run script on interface up/down?
I've tried setting this, and at least on F11, it doesn't appear to do anything.

comment Installing software in home directory
Yeah, I understand that, but sometimes a patch is really the only way to solve it. Seems like it wouldn't be a large patch on each package, but multiply by the number of packages that need it, and it may add up.

I think you got the 38 and 48 backwards?

comment Trac + SVN: Why post commit hook doesn't work?
Sorry, I was thinking there was something inside the trac-post-commit-hook that might be affected by that, but glancing over it again, I don't see anything. You might add an echo to the post-commit hook to verify that part is getting executed.

Are you able to remove the $*; and execute the git pull by hand without error?
