comment why can't I umount /home?
directly logged in as root. no FTP is running on the machine. Just issuing lsof prints a ton of crap, I suspect the problem is tied to the fact there are a number of logging mechanisms running (see my output of fuser in the question). But again... to kill them?

comment why can't I umount /home?
Yes, I am logged in as root, there is no one else on the system. If you can suggest how to use a "live distro" with Virtualbox I could give that a try.

Since it's running in a virtual box, the CD becomes problematic. You might also be able to do this if you log in as root. That way the /home partition is not needed. I am logged in as root, which it was my intent to avoid problem this way, I'm trying to figure out why that doesn't work.

comment diff and patch tool
I think you're right, I was not aware of the -u option for diff, that does make the formatting the same. How would I update that line to avoid certain files? For example any *.o files that are in the directories.

comment Calculating dual core performance (GF/s)
Gottcha, I was thinking that too, but I wasn't sure if that was oversimplifying it... considering extra IPC requirements between cores or shared resources or anything

comment How does the OS generate a random socket port?
It's a good question, but its a broad topic, and not c++ related in its current form. You might get abetter answer on superuser.
