comment How do I determine how much RAM I actually need?
Does this take into account Windows' feature of pre-caching RAM simply because it is there? I would think that may skew the results somewhat.

comment How can I tell if my multiple network interfaces are working ok?
No, I wouldn't go that far. What you're trying to do needs a second route table, bound to your other interface, so the system understands how to handle requests from each interface. See thomas-krenn.com/en/wiki/Two_Default_Gateways_on_One_System for a good resource on the concept.

comment How can I tell if my multiple network interfaces are working ok?
Well it not pulling external sites suggests that it is working, because otherwise you'd get connectivity through the other link. Your broadband network isn't completely set up, I don't know how bind is supposed to handle that situation but the kernel doesn't know where to send your packets.

comment How can I tell if my multiple network interfaces are working ok?
From the looks of it, your .0.0 route doesn't work when you're bound to the 42.0 network because your default route points to a gateway at 42.129, which you can't access on the other network. You need a route for 0.0.0.0/0 on 192.168.0.0/24, probably whatever your router is.

comment change IP when a CNAME is used
Have you rebooted since changing your hosts file? Also, I think nslookup always makes a DNS query instead of checking the hosts file, but I'm not certain. ping is a better bet.

comment Dns server for specific domain
Yeah - it's not possible for everyone, because of course some people also don't have access to configure their DNS server in work, or it might be just a router or some thing which can't be configured as easily. I mentioned it just because it's possible to achieve this in that way, and in some cases it's an easier solution, especially if as in our case you want to make that alias available to multiple users, or on different platforms (that works on windows too, for instance). Whatever works!

comment Where to find libc.so.0
This is a kind of dirty solution to the problem. Sonames are different usually because they don't export the same symbols any more - in some cases you'll get away with it, in a lot, it will break your application.

comment On Linux, is devices order constant?
Update: The new Udev naming scheme is worth a mention here - a new feature in v197 is "Predictable Network Interface Names" which changes slightly some of the previous information with respect to names like eth0, eth1, and so on. You can read more about that here: freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/systemd/…

Well he's logging in as root, so he won't need a password or sudo.
