comment My production server has bad blocks, now what?
@MarcStürmer: look for a new provider, backup, reconfigure new server, transfer data, get all my applications, ssh keys, etc. I am looking at a one-week task at least. Not to speak about lost contract (I have paid for one year hosting). Besides, my current provider is quite cheap with high bandwidth and very big disk.

comment My production server has bad blocks, now what?
No time for that :( Now that the blocks are marked as badblocks, can't I assume that the disk will work (for a while at least) more reliably?

No, it is a dedicated host, low priceplan, no support, discontinued. They won't even answer emails (ovh)

comment Verify architecture of kernel file
But anyway, the question is not why should I check this?, but how can I check it?. I have given a bit of background to justify why I want to do that, but if that is not good enough, let's say I am just curious. Given a kernel file, how do I know for which architecture has it been compiled? Can it be done? I bet! How? No idea!

comment Verify architecture of kernel file
It is very obvious, but I want to double check. Because of two reasons: there is a very annoying -32-generic suffix, wich seen besides the -std-ipv6-64 just does not look right. And second: this is a remote machine. If it does not boot correctly, I will have lots of trouble to put it back to the correct state.

comment Dial international number over dahdi trunk
I am trying to verify that with my provider. Do you know of any backup solution in case I can not? I have some routing partners that I have been using for incoming calls, which I could try to contact to perform outgoing calls too, but if you have any names which are worth trying, please let me know.

comment fsck root filesystem on a remote machine
Ubuntu has no -F flag, so do it manually: sudo touch /forcefsck ; sudo shutdown -r now

comment Show statistics for ssh connection
@Jenny D: Thanks, looks like a good idea! I'll try that. Anyway, if somebody knows about counters, please let me know.

comment Get details about “Remote UNIX connection disconnected”
No FreePBX. And I know about this messages. I was just getting way to many (like 3 msg/s), and wanted to verify who was doing this.

comment Reopen a truncated file while following a file with less
Thanks, but tail is very limited compared to less. I want to use less, but I also want this tail feature.

comment Adding tail behaviour where enter adds blank lines to less
Do you have a link at hand to request this feature to the less mantainers?

comment Adding tail behaviour where enter adds blank lines to less
No, it won't. It will follow new lines, but it will not work as tail -f. Specifically it will not accept enter as newlines, which is the only point of my question. Besides, I already mentioned Shift+F in the question (with a small error, I must say)

comment Change nice level of currently running script
Sure, that is it. In some systems, -n is not accepted.

comment Apache: SSLCertificateKeyFile: file does not exist or is empty
Your are probably right, it should be at least 0750. I have been trying different things, and the status I posted is probably not the most correct one. Running apache2ctl as root has for sure solved my problems.

comment rsync - report only uploaded files
@David: thanks for pointing out the risk. But I consider it a minor risk. I mean, the same size and the same timestamp! I am not backing up important data, it is just for a software deploy. I can not think of a situation where I will run into problems with this.

comment rsync - report only uploaded files
This did it: rsync <options> --times -i <src> <dst>. And I learnt something more about rsync: In order for the full optimizations to work, you need --times.

comment rsync - report only uploaded files
Mmmm. getting closer: the reporting string is (for all files) <f..T....... According to the manpage, this is related to timestamps.

comment rsync - report only uploaded files
I think you are right. I have taken a look at the manpage and it is described as you say. But my system is reporting all files. Maybe something wrong with the far-end ...

comment rsync - report only uploaded files
My rsync (version 3.0.7) does not add uptodate to the reporting, so not possible to filter that out.
