comment Is it possible to extract multiple groups at once when fontifying with font-lock?
Thanks for the answer, I found a partial answer too: using ("\\(group one\\)\\(group two\\)" (1 face-one) (2 face-two)) seems to do what I asked above, but it doesn't solve the original problem, because extracting repeating groups (such as if matching delimited lists) becomes very tedious with long fixed length lists and impossible with lists of arbitrary length. So, yes, I'm going to research the search-based fontification).

comment Filter packets sent via HTTP to a port other then 80?
Yup, your answer combined with @nik filter did the trick. Thanks a bunch!

I really just pasted it as is into Wireshark's filter input box, after I certainly sent a request to the server and also got a response, but nothing showed up in the main window. The IP address is rather non-spcific in my case... that's my localhost.

Nope, this didn't do it. Sorry.

@grawity Umm... I thought they were the same :) Well, Wireshark then, that's what I'm using. But if there's some way to do this via tcpdump, that's fine too, whichever gets me there.

comment Get a concise list of open (listening) sockets in Fedora 17
@Paul I'm not assuming anything. The number assigned to the opened port is useful. A string alias - isn't. End of story. Sorry, I won't reply any more on this subject. I think it won't help anything / will just waste a little more of database space, hence adding to global warming :)

@Paul correct information may well be garbage, if there is no way to interpret it. If I write this answer to you in Cyrilic phonetic translation - will it not be garbage to you? It most certainly will, however, it may be correct in all other aspects.

@Paul I really think this argument is redundant. For me they don't match - hence garbage. Maybe someone used a string consisting of all numbers as an alias to the port number - I don't know and am not eager to find out. In the particular case of the program I'm interested in the port is printed as :shockwave2 - and that is a particularly useless piece of information.

@Paul that was just an example that floated somewhere in the top results. I was using a different program to bind the socket (written by me, so I surely know what port it uses).

I actually did say it's Fedora 17. yum claims there's no sockstat that it knows of, but it's not uncommon for RHEL to rename things. If only I knew this is the case... :)

@terdon I can't yet :) I'd need to wait for some time. But you are welcome to post your suggestion if you like.

@Paul with another program if I do then echo "some command" | nc 127.0.0.1 port-number - where I actually know what port number it listens on, I'm getting the expected message back, but that program appears in the list as listening on a completely different port.

@terdon oh, I've missed the -p option. Sorry, I've been trying them from memory instead of just reading through the list of options... well... I'm sorry :) netstat -npa did what I wanted.

@lserni unfortunately not. This will not print the name of the program using (binding) the socket...

comment Moved /lib64 to /backup_lib64 using sudo, now sudo doesn't work on CentOS6.4
Well, then I'm sorry to tell you, but it seems like you have to pull some other triggers there... it doesn't look like there's a technical way to solve this.

It sounds like you didn't get much in terms of a ways out of this situation. However, have you tried su command? Perhaps it doesn't need to load any libraries (not likely, but you could still try).

comment Why aren't all alternatives listed / applied?
I've not heard before of ccache, so I didn't know what it does. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction!

@terdon I'm still not exactly sure what happened. Even though make now finds the proper compiler, which will print the "wrong" one.

@vonbrand by the way, could it be GCC_EXEC_PREFIX you were thinking of?

@vonbrand man gcc takes forever to render in Emacs :) needless to say I'm not a pro with it / am unlikely to find it, w/o knowing what exactly I'm looking for. But thanks for heads up. Interestingly, I discovered that alternatives at first, silently failed to create the symlink because the name was taken by the actual gcc binary! After handling that and re-running the whole procedure again it seems to work (I still need to try to launch an example, but I think I've "solved" it somehow already).
