comment Is the X Server refresh rate same as the monitor refresh rate?
If you are developing video, either you know what tools you are using and how to use them, or you aren't going to get very far.

comment How can I repair the OSX root partition without the original disk?
If you're on a Lion install (not upgrade from SL), you should have a recovery partition; hold down <kbd>Option</kbd> at boot. Otherwise, yes, you need to boot from something other than the filesystem you're trying to check.

@DragonLord: csh worked that way. Technically we're both wrong anyway; POSIX killed both of those and it's nice -n INCREMENT COMMAND ....

comment Compiling my own python has broken system scripts?
That I couldn't tell you, aside from the assumption being that you're doing an initial install (which is the default assummpion even though it's usually wrong for shells and fundamental scripting languages).

comment Compiling my own python has broken system scripts?
It doesn't say that explicitly; it's implied by the fact that overriding the system-provided Perl/Python/Ruby is almost certain to break things (as indeed it did for you). "caution: fire is hot"

comment Directory “Bookmarking” in Linux
CDPATH works like PATH; if you have CDPATH=$HOME/dir1/dir2 then cd tools will look for $HOME/dir1/dir2/tools.

comment Directory “Bookmarking” in Linux
What exactly did you set CDPATH to, for that? (Beware that ~ is not always expanded in such cases; you may want to use $HOME instead.)

set doesn't do what you think it does. (Try echo $1 in the shell where you did that.) It's just CDPATH=whatever.

comment Directory “Bookmarking” in Linux
Many shells also have a $CDPATH; this could be combined with one or more of the other solutions, for example to reduce the clutter from links. by hiding them in a dot-directory and putting that in $CDPATH.

comment Compiling my own python has broken system scripts?
I'm not sure what you're asking (/usr/local/binmkvir/python looks slightly confused), but apt-get install virtualenv is fine. You do want to remove, or at least relocate, the python executable you had built and use virtualenv to install it properly so that you can use it without interfering with the system Python; see the virtualenv documentation.
