Hmm. I should put something in here. Something fascinating, and both witty and insightful. Otherwise noone will know how interesting I am.

Oh well, whatever. Some other day, maybe.

comment Automatic root login in Debian 6.0 without GUI (xserver)
@lppier This inittab line just tells the first console ("c1:"), when initialized under runlevels 1, 2, 3 or 5 (":1235:") to run the command "/sbin/login -f root...2>&1" (force login without password) instead of "/sbin/agetty...linux", and to restart the process whenever it's terminated (":respawn:"). The whole "</dev/tty1 >/dev/tty1 2>&1" bit is to force the session input and output to go through the console (which IIRC was necessary for reasons), but I honestly have no idea why that first "tty1" is in there :/ You should be able to man inittab and man login for further details.

comment Accessing 192.168.1.1 sluggish (occasionally fails) in Linksys WRT54G router
@user22105 No clue. I would blame cheap hardware requiring more software control combined with low RAM, but that's just a guess.

@user22105 My own (8MB model) hovers between 92% and 97% Used, even after a power cycle.

Out of curiousity, does accessing the management GUI still take forever even after unplugging and plugging back in? I have similar problems with my own WRT54G, but only after it's been running for an extended period; it works flawlessly (for a while) after power-cycling.

comment Less interrupting in less
-1: may solve OP's instigating problem, but does nothing to answer OP's actual question (i.e., interrupting a process).
