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?

The TLDP Transparent Proxying with Squid HOWTO is a little old, but should be useful.

Easiest is probably to use a proxy like Squid and force all web traffic through your proxy.

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.

comment Changing terminal transparency with a command in Ubuntu?
In the cross-posted question there is an answer showing how to swap opacity / transparency -- showing that once again you cannot count on the lack of documentation to mean something is or isn't possible with the GNOME software.
