comment What is the correct cipher name for RC4 in Chrome?
@gentmatt See iana.org/assignments/tls-parameters/… for a list of all cipher suites. You can ignore the anonymous, export, PSK and KRB5 cipher suites as they are not used. 0xC011 is TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_RC4_128_SHA. Missing RC4 cipher suites in this list are 0xC002,0xC007,0xC00C.

comment What are the Compile time considerations to reduce the size of binary on Linux?
@nyk_mat Is this about the Linux kernel or a program that is intended to run on Linux? In case of the Linux kernel, use make menuconfig and disable what you do not need. For other programs, check whether you can disable features (for autoconf projects, ./configure --disable-FEATURE --without-PACKAGE where FEATURE and PACKAGE have to be replaced. See ./configure --help)

comment bbswitch fails to turn off discrete graphics
@bharat_iyengar Following the README, you see that you might have to update your initial ramdisk. I am not so familiar with Fedora, but according to their wiki, you can run mkinitrd. As Fedora seems to use systemd, they likely use kmod too. Usually you do not need to enable the card on shutdown.

comment Force https performance
Apache does not ship with this module by default, the performance issue that OP is describing is not related to HTTPS on its own, but premature optimization / stupid configuration.

comment Force https performance
Possible duplicate of security.stackexchange.com/q/43376/2630? (which has more context). David, you do not have to use Apache... you can also use nginx which has a very clean configuration syntax. See nginx.org/en/docs/http/converting_rewrite_rules.html if you want to switch.

Could it be paired with another receiver in your neighborhood while that machine is still powered on?

comment Where can I download Windows 7 (legally from Microsoft)?
There exists a longer list for other languages on sites.google.com/site/linuxlablibrary/windows-iso. I have also read on a Dutch forum that removing sources\ei.cfg allows you to turn an installation ISO into any of the Starter (x86), Home Basic, Home Premium and Ultimate versions. (oh, that was stated by Karan too :))

comment pidgin & pidgin-data version conflict
@Teifi You should use apt-cache policy pidgin pidgin-data to determine where the packages are installed from.

comment MiniITX-based NAS can't shutdown properly when Wake-on-Lan is enabled in BIOS
@Mr.Goodkat Still having this issue? Since you mentioned Debian, can you attach the full output of dmesg and pastebin the output of sudo acpidump > acpidump.txt somewhere?

comment Does VT-d need hardware support (besides the CPU)?
That user does not look like a GA employee. Isn't Z86 Express referred to from Z68X? My question still stands, is VT-d support dependent on the hardware (motherboard!) or firmware (BIOS)?

comment Does VT-d need hardware support (besides the CPU)?
I tried to keep this question more generic, but since you insisted, the motherboard is GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 rev1.0. There is no official option, but the provided images in this forum thread do add an Enable VT-d option. (though I cannot confirm whether it works or not since I do not have a VT-d capable CPU yet.)

comment Simple daemon in C for constantly removing files from a user directory
D'oh, I was about to post an answer... @IlianZapryanov If you ask a new question about how to keep a directory empty, I will post the answer with inotify.

comment Simple daemon in C for constantly removing files from a user directory
@l0b0 With other programs, yes. I have tried it on pidgin and it works. Illian, instead of a busy loop, consider using inotify.

comment Simple daemon in C for constantly removing files from a user directory
Have you considered rm -r ~/.purple/icons; ln -s /dev/null ~/.purple/icons ? In that way, you do not even have to delete anything!

comment Connect a keyboard to my laptop
@WilliamHilsum I can confirm that such an adapter did not work for me with an old brand-less keyboard included with an old PC (256MB RAM). Another report on unix.stackexchange.com/q/52706/8250

comment should every TCP data packet be acknowledge or not?
@misteryes This is also real-world behavior. If you want to see the "practical behavior", install a monitor like Wireshark or consult one of the open-source TCP stacks (e.g. Linux).

comment Curl --insecure error in Cygwin (works in Linux)
Most likely an old or incomplete version of curl. What version of curl do you have and where did you get it?

comment Recommended way of installing PHP 5.4
@DevilsChild Are you sure about that? Could it be that you used an older image instead of the downloaded one? It seems unlikely to me that the Debian installer has such a severe issue.
