comment Cannot perform smartctl self-test after migrating servers from SLES to Scientific Linux
We've had disk failures in the past, and want to have advance notification of failing drives. The SMART attributes on these drives seem to be improperly calibrated (most of the attributes are flagged as pre-fail / old age) so it seems that the only proper way to get info from SMART is to actually run the self-tests

comment how to fix “Package pcre-6.6-6.el5_6.1.x86_64 already installed and latest version” alert need to update it to pcre-8.31?
Try configuring this repo as well: jasonlitka.com/media/EL5/x86_64 -- and see if you can then update both pcre together

Might not be a good idea if you have many packages depending on it. In that case, if you're rolling out your own newer pcre package, consider renaming it to pcre8 or something

comment Why is /dev/urandom only readable by root since Ubuntu 12.04 and how can I “fix” it?
since the solution is likely Ubuntu-specific, AskUbuntu is probably a better bet at this point. I'm blissfully using systemd, and /etc/rc.d/rc.local just works without a glitch as it did under systemV initscripts :/

There are some issues that might cause /etc/rc.local to not be sourced properly on Ubuntu -- including its permission (it has to be marked executable). see here: bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/sysvinit/+bug/882254
