comment maillist to (local) NNTP server gateway
I suggest you re-read my original question again: I already stated there, that I was fully aware that Mailman can be configured to feed a NNTP server. My question is about being some guy on the Internet who wants to "subscribe" a local NNTP server to public mailing lists.

comment How to “sandbox boot” an operating system in a Hypervisor without a full blown host OS?
@Scott: No not really. The question you linked about is "freezing" the state of a system (or application, which with some caveats, can be done, BTW; Linux cluster systems like OpenMOSIX built upon this). I on the other hand want exactly the opposite: I'd like to start an operating system in a way, that nothing "sticks". Using a VM this is trivial, but then the guest OS sees the VM environment. Which in the case of being used for a honeypot is a giveaway.

comment Why is my old Nvidia card failing to start?
If I'm not entirely mistaken, the GTS240 requires a driver that considers the FX5200 to be "legacy" and does not support it. And unfortunately it is not possible to install multiple versions of the NVidia drivers in parallel.

comment Could not display the GUI. This application needs access to an X Server
There's your problem: sudo doesn't hand over the X authentication token, programs started there won't be able to open a connection to the X server. The authentication token usually resides at ${HOME}/.Xauthrority. E.g. it may be /home/foobar/.Xauthority. So open a sudo shell (sudo -s), then therein add the right authority environment (export XAUTHORITY=/home/foobar/.Xauthority), now you should be able to run the installer from within that shell. You must replace /home/foobar with your own home directory of course.

@user1683628: Now the next question: Do you start SOAPUI under your user session, or as a different user, in a different session (i.e. through su, sudo)?

Your question better fits SuperUser. Voting to close as off-topic.

comment Transatlantic ping faster than sending a pixel to the screen?
Here's how I measure display latency: Most chipsets provide some GPIO pins, which you can toggle with an outp instruction (your program must run very privileged of course for this to work). Then clone the screen on a digital and a analogue connection. The display goes to digital. Put a photodiode on the display and hook up the analoge video and the photodiode to an oscilloscope, and the scope's external trigger to the GPIO. Now you can use the GPIO for triggerin and accurately measure the time it takes for the signal to appear on the line and the display.

comment Forwarding X through 2 servers (4 boxes involved)
This surprises me a bit, since SSH is rolling it's own xauth implementation.

comment Forwarding X through 2 servers (4 boxes involved)
Did you check /etc/sshd_config for this? Also are all proxies configured for localhost display?

The ssh daemons on the relays are probably not configured for X11 forwarding.

comment How to allow a user to modify settings on one particular network adaptor, while the others may only be changed by an administrator?
@Psycogeek: Yes, I know this. You gave me a correct answer to the wrong question. The non-DAQ NIC may be required to be configured by the user, because there may be no DHCP on site or they're using en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peg_DHCP So my problem is: One adapter must be user configurable, while the other must be bolted down.
