comment Git - rebasing a file into past history of that file
That suggests that the file in dir2 wasn't a version of the file in dir1, at least not in a linear way. I know Git will usually refuse to make commits that don't include any changes, so some of your conflict resolutions probably made it so that the file didn't change, and git simply eliminated those commits. You might want to redo the rebase, and try to merge changes together for conflicts rather than choose one of the versions.

comment Git - rebasing a file into past history of that file
If I understand you right, you want to make it look like all versions of filename were in dir1 and never in dir2? You will need to go and edit your commit v4 using rebase -i v4, choose edit for that particular commit, and then change it.

Yes, most Windows users don't, but there are exceptions. Also, a few people have discovered hibernation, which amounts to leaving your computer on indefinitely.

Try using TCP. UDP datagrams can get lost or blocked by a firewall without any error being reported.

comment Git - rebasing a file into past history of that file
Git is smart enough to see that two files are identical even if they are in different directories, so if you are doing this to save space it isn't necessary. I'm not entirely sure what it is you want to change, but what you probably want is an interactive rebase. Read this, esp. the "Splitting a Commit" section. This will let you go back and edit previous commits.

comment Sync files to an sftp server
Do you have rsync on the server (many Linux servers do)? If so, try using something like this. It's likely to be considerably faster and possibly easier to setup.

comment CUPS and Foomatic fail with “Cannot allocate memory” on Arch Linux ARM
Man, I think that was how much RAM my first Linux desktop had (well before CUPS!). That really does look like an out of memory issue. You could try setting up a swap, at least to test, or you could try turning on memory overcommit (run echo 1 > /proc/sys/vm/overcommit_memory). Note that with overcommit Linux will allow processes to ask for as much memory as they want but will start killing them when it runs out - this is likely to cause system instability.

comment Creating a Symlink in an NTFS share
Not really. There used to be a driver to mount ext2 under windows, and it could do ext3 without the journal (which is dangerous if a crash happens). I don't know if it supports ext4 or if it was ever updated to Vista/7/8. I suspect the driver doesn't expose symlinks to Windows (how would it interpret them?)

About half should be ~256MB for that 512MB device. What is the output of free? It is the -/+ buffers/cache line that you want.
