I consider myself an advocate of free software but in many points I don't agree with Richard Stalman. Currently I'm studying "Elektro- und Informationstechnologie" (a short translation would be "electronics") at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology.

comment Make a bootable USB drive that can install both Windows XP and Ubuntu
Take a look at multisystem (liveusb.info/dotclear) the design of the GUI is terrible, the translation is terrible, too, but for me the program works, and that's the important thing.

comment How do I find out the compressed / uncompressed file sizes on btrfs?
It's easy for the whole filesystem (compare the output of df with the output of du) but I don't know how to do that for single files, I'm really interested in the answer to this question.

comment VirtualBox: Accessing guest Linux filesystem from host MacOS
As long as there are no drivers for the file system Linux Mint uses (should be ext4) in Mac OS X, you won't have any luck there. There are ways to mount Virtualbox images, but only if the file system inside it is supported.

BTW: You can install a self compiled kernel from kernel.org on any distro you like, if that's what you want.

If this question is still relevant, you might try to put the ExecStart and ExecStop commands in separate shell scripts in /usr/local/bin

comment Overhead associated with systemd using Arch linux on a Raspberry Pi
As far as I know the only things that systemd uses to monitor services are logging of the output and cgroups. Cgroups are built into the kernel directly and I don't think they create much overhead.

comment how do i uninstall a progam from linux which isnot present in package list?
If you're lucky the .run file installed the software to /opt or /usr/local in this case you can simply go through every file and directory in /opt and /usr/local and delete it if it belongs to the installed program.
