comment Different commands shows different results. If my linux 32 bit or 64 bit?
I looked at the standard link in your other comment. The definition (Number of bits in a word or type int) is ambiguous (and so is “exactly as required”), which makes it useless already; going with "size of an int" instead of "size of a word" as the name implies is a dubious choice.

comment How to prevent dpkg trigger cycle?
Then you're set? Run your generator stuff in your trigger, and don't run update-menus, the other trigger will do it.

comment Rsync backups on btrfs very slow
Is the filesystem, metadata segments in particular, anywhere full? As I recall metadata performance gets pretty bad with limited space. Btrfs' default heuristics can also fail to allocate enough space for metadata.

comment du -sh : I don't get why these two results are different
Just to double check, this is GNU du, with no aliasing or funny folder names that start with dashes?

comment SMART-Test never finishes
Other possible interruptions (serverfault.com/a/584055): a bad cable can cause timeouts, and the kernel will trigger a reset. I'm less sure it's necessary to stop smartd. Any timeouts and interruptions will appear in dmesg/kern.log/journalctl -fk.

comment Unix/Linux find and sort by date modified
ls doesn't quote file names in a way xargs can understand (no -0 option, and the various quote styles are inadequate)

comment why /etc/hosts don't effect to my firefox on Ubuntu 10.04?
/etc/host.conf is obsolete, /etc/hosts isn't. nsswitch.conf decides whether and how /etc/hosts is used.

comment What happens when an SSD wears out?
@Splinter the point made in the article is that SSDs fail to give advance warning via SMART. May not be significant for the users who ignore it, but it's an important difference for everyone else.

comment Explanation of x264 tune
@Florin Both are for high-quality sources, but --tune film will filter some of the grain and --tune grain will preserve more of it. AIUI the latter should only be used if the grain is an important part of the visuals that could still be noticeable at the target settings.

I've found nethogs gives unreliable stats, but atop 2 (+ netatop) does this well.

comment Is there a way to determine how much memory each Firefox add-on is leaking?
Here is a hall of shame for start-up time impact (via‌​). I don't know of tests measuring memory impact on a typical tabbed browsing session, but I agree they are needed.

comment Is there a way to determine how much memory each Firefox add-on is leaking?
about:memory with compartments (in nightlies, possibly aurora) is beginning to give an idea of chrome js memory vs tab js memory. Though heap-unclassified takes 40% here.
