comment I accidently gave all my project files a .gz format, how to revert it?
As long there are no files with spaces in their names, this will work fine.

comment Why is mount is forcing me to specify -t ext4 for one partition, but not the other?
Ok, so at least we know why lsblk reported something different than blkid -- blkid uses a cache by default. So it must have got it right once. Again, I'm out of ideas without getting to the util-linux code.

Oh yeah, also make sure you try the e2fsck with the -f option. Otherwise it may be just seeing it's clean and not doing any more checking. Since it mounts fine, I don't expect this to yield anything, but maybe....

comment Why is mount is forcing me to specify -t ext4 for one partition, but not the other?
Ok, at least we've got something other than mount not seeing the right thing (lsblk). lsblk is seeing pretty much nothing, no label, no UUID, no fs type but it's not emitting any sort of error. One more thing that might be useful is a blkid with no cache (-c /dev/null). I'd still wouldn't know the culprit, but it'd at least show that libblkid isn't reading the info. Anything in dmesg relating to problems? And I assume this has persisted across a reboot? I'm out of ideas that don't involve building until-linux with debugging....

The difference in the "I will try" messages from mount means that for some reason mount didn't find the fs type when it probed the device. Mount does essentially the same thing as your blkid call, so that's still strange. It should give you the same results, but for sanity maybe see if lsblk --fs /dev/sdc1 says the same thing.

comment Requiring two-factor ssh authentication only from certain clients
(sorry for the long time in reply, I missed the question about pam_combo). Pam_combo is a combination of pam_access and pam_time. So can say things like "allow this ip address only during these hours." I assume there is some way to do that without writing your own pam module, but I once drove myself crazy trying to figure it out and decided it was easier to write my own pam module. On suppressing the google auth prompt, I'm not sure on that one -- you don't get any extra prompt with yubi, which is all I've done.

comment How many custom route tables can I have on Linux?
Also, always showing table 255 for values with the 32nd bit doesn't appear to be any sort of planned behaviour, just a bug. With a one line patch to iproute I was able to create and show a table with number 4294967290. However, it may not be as simple as that, there may other pieces that still don't deal with 2^32 tables.

Yes, the max in 2.4 and 2.2 was 255.
