In which case you should move this question to askubuntu.com :)

comment ssh sudo command to local machine
What user are you logging in as on slave, and what OS is it using? Also, paste the contents of your .ssh/config file - make sure to change the IPs though :)

comment Losing ssh keys when it's the only authentication
Exactly; if it's a self-hosted VM then that's what you'll have to do, some VPS providers and cloud VM hosting services may have their own automated way to do this though. With Amazon EC2, for example, I'm pretty sure you can upload a new public key from the web interface.

comment Using video ports 'backwards'
Like @techie007 says in his answer, this is an output connector, so the cable goes straight into a graphics card. There's no way you'd be able to get software to change the way the hardware works.

comment Why is 'ping' unable to resolve a name when 'nslookup' works fine?
are you running these tests on wolfram or on another machine?

comment Why is 'ping' unable to resolve a name when 'nslookup' works fine?
What I think's happening is that ping isn't looking up the FQDN of the host, unlike nslookup which uses the search domain parameter of a DHCP offer (or whatever you specify for a static IP configuration). Confirm this by doing what @SLaks has said and pinging the FQDN of the host :)

comment Why do I have untrusted certificates for Google, Yahoo, Mozilla and others?
I understood the concept of CAs; I was just surprised to see entries for specific servers :) Chrome & Chromium warn you that the certificate is invalid/self signed and let you decide what to do :)

Thanks! I've heard of revocation lists and expiry before but I guess I didn't put 2+2 together :)

comment Use VPN for only select connections
Specify in the question (possibly make it bold) that you're using Windows. This is the kind of problem which is very OS-specific

when you say proxy, do you mean an HTTP proxy? If so, check out corkscrew agroman.net/corkscrew

comment Backups over SSH via Cron - which user?
I stand corrected! :) Still probably a bad idea from a security perspective though as its using the root user privileges

You wouldn't be able to create this user as root already has that UID.

That's going to spawn loads of subprocesses and crash the system....

Yeah... I think I'm pre-emptively planning for a problem I don't understand and might end up not having....

comment How do I compress a vmlinux kernel into vmlinuz?
vmlinuz isn't a make option - also, bzImage doesn't mean its compressed with bzip - it's shorthand for big zimage where z means zipped; see en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vmlinux#bzImage

comment How to prevent processor state from automatically changing to 100%?
+1 for that; if these settings are configured in BIOS then Windows might not know they exist.

comment Terminate child processes on ctrl-c
there are scripts that the X service runs afterwards - it would be possible to change the order of script execution but it would take a lot more time & testing.

comment Terminate child processes on ctrl-c
Wouldn't that rely on the process to be waiting though?

comment Terminate child processes on ctrl-c
It fully terminates X. That is to say that if I run startx from the shell, waiting for X to start and pressing CTRL+ALT+BACKSPACE means the X display closes and the shell resumes. Also note that the shell I refer to is the only TTY on the system.
