comment how to list current path mode?
Why not just ls -lid /data/db_1 if you know the name?

Who says he's trying to parse the output, I think he just wants to view it.

@woohoo Not according to developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Command_Line_Options, it shows just a single dash.

comment Forward Mac OS X apps
No, because OS X apps don't use X as their windowing API. You'll need to use a remote desktop client like VNC.

comment Why can't I kill this process on Linux?
I think you're confusing orphan processes with zombie processes, but they're unrelated.

Where do you see <defunct> in his ps output? What does that have to do with this question?

comment Why can't I kill this process on Linux?
A process with parent PID 1 is not a zombie. A process gets this parent when its parent is killed before it is. So his killall is apparently killing the parent, not the process he wanted to.

comment Remote desktop options for modern linux
I've used VNC with Macs across the Internet. As long as both locations have high-speed Internet connections, it works fine. But I think you're right about it just sharing the physical screen, not create a new virtual desktop.

comment Why does root cron job script need 'sudo' to run properly?
Does the failing apt-get command report any errors? Since you're not redirecting its output, it will be sent as mail to root.

comment Is there really a “USB communication protocol”?
Every communications technology makes use of protocols. There are low-level protocol that govern how bits are represented as voltages on an electrical wire, high-level protocols for determining what kind of device something is and how to send commands to it, and medium-level protocols for indicating which device on the bus a command is intended for.

comment Why isn't & working?
If you find yourself wanting to do this frequently, and don't want to use Spotlight, you could enable the locate facility and then use locate .bash_profile. If you try that command now, it will tell you how to enable it permanently.

If you're on a Mac, why are you using find instead of Spotlight?
