comment PuTTY Fatal Error dialog - Can it be suppressed?
@Jacob "massive security concern" -- What security concern could there be if I'm using the sessions up to the point I turn off the computer which then terminates all of them? I disagree that it's "lazy" to ask for a method to close them all at once.

comment PuTTY Fatal Error dialog - Can it be suppressed?
Yes, I probably do. :-/ But I meant when I'm already late, there's often no time left to spare for closing browser tabs, emails, whatever. I'm really not meaning to be argumentative--just explaining it's not always practical (for me, at least) to avoid the situation although I'd like to.

comment PuTTY Fatal Error dialog - Can it be suppressed?
Thanks for the answer. I have keepalives enabled. The disconnect happens because I sometimes have to sleep my computer before disconnecting each session explicitly (often half a dozen or more with my work). I was just hoping for a way to disable the dialog that is intrusively telling me the information I already know.

Thank you for the advice, but suggesting I leave work later than I already do doesn't really answer my question. :) FWIW, if I need to leave my computer on overnight or unattended, I do explicitly log out of my sessions, but I'm okay with a disconnect due to timeout (sleeping the computer) if I need to leave in a hurry.

comment How to create a LXC container on LVM from an OpenVZ template?
The config part might be where I'm stuck. With OpenVZ, there are sample configs in /etc/vz/conf and the command vzctl create --ostemplate {something-in-/vz/template/cache/} --config {something-in-/etc/vz/conf} handles everything. Does lxc-create not have anything similar, other than a "script" template (-t)? And are there any included sample configs? I can do all the extracting, no problem, but I guess you had to make /etc/lxc/Lancaster_Test.conf from scratch originally?

comment How to create a LXC container on LVM from an OpenVZ template?
@ewwhite With OpenVZ, I have always made a volume per container and edited the config to point to the appropriate mounted volume (OpenVZ didn't know it was a volume). I like that LXC has support for LVM, but when the container is running (created with the command above) I cannot see the volume mounted anywhere with df. Does that mean I'm using a raw volume? I basically want the benefits of LVM, and I am fine with LXC managing it, but it would be nice to have direct file access too IMO.
