comment Ubuntu on VMWare Player: My Ruby is missing
Were any changes that you made to the system retained? Or were they all thrown away? Does the properties for your virtual machine (or block device?) allow writing to the virtual machine or block device? Do you have permissions to modify the files that hold all the virtual machine data?

Are you certain that VMWare player allows you to make persistent changes?

comment Install gentoo on macbook pro
This question would be more appropriate for Super User, but it is lacking a huge amount of detail that they would require. Which gentoo live dvd? A recent version? One known to work with Apple's EFI boot process? Or are you using BootCamp? What errors specifically are you getting?

comment How do I enable 'highlight to copy' feature on CentOS6
Strictly speaking, highlighting doesn't copy to the clipboard but instead populates a selection buffer.

You will probably also need to include the output of ip addr show and ip route show. If ping(1) doesn't work, how about non-ICMP packet types? UDP or TCP?

comment How do I block url in Ubuntu internet shared connection?
The TLDP Transparent Proxying with Squid HOWTO is a little old, but should be useful.

comment How do I block url in Ubuntu internet shared connection?
Easiest is probably to use a proxy like Squid and force all web traffic through your proxy.

Why do you think umask is an option you can set with ext3 filesystems?

comment Deleted /usr/bin/python* by mistake, how can I recover it?
Man, that one is digging deeper into Python than I've needed in a while. Something is definitely odd that your sys.path doesn't include any directories /usr/lib/python* -- try to reinstall python-numpy or dpkg-reconfigure python2.7 to see if you can't "poke" whatever process left out the normal packaged directories.

comment Deleted /usr/bin/python* by mistake, how can I recover it?
@Paul: Are you just typing numpy at the prompt? Or import numpy at the prompt? You can't use plain numpy until you've imported the package.

True, but rm -i gets old after four or five files.
