comment Why is INSTALL_MOD_STRIP not on by default?
Also, I should mention that, at least as far as I remember (though it's been a while by now), the reason I had to go and find INSTALL_MOD_STRIP to begin with was that my initrd images grew so large without it that Grub wouldn't even accept them, in which case it's not entirely true that not stripping "does no harm".

That does not seem quite true. The commit you quoted only reverts changes to the stripping behavior, but INSTALL_MOD_STRIP existed long before that. As far as I can tell, it was introduced in commit ac031f26e8, which only mentions it as the solution to the problem of huge modules.

Thanks for the idea to trace the history of the changes. I'll be doing that, but so far it doesn't seem to answer my basic question; namely what the rational for including debug symbols by default is, and why stripping installed modules is not the default behavior.

comment radvd won't accept non-/64 subnets
I see. It seems I need to reevaluate my conception of how IPv6 addressing really works a bit, then. Thanks.

I find that quite odd, to the point of being hard to believe. Surely, it must be the intention that one should be able to structure networks internally with static routing?

comment What memory statistics does Linux' ps command really display?
While that doesn't answer the question, it is helpful in that I can perhaps look at the kernel source to figure out the actual answer. Thanks!

comment Is it preferable to have GRUB2 installed on a HDD vs SDD?
Not really. I quite simply don't really think it matters in any way whatsoever which drive you put Grub on. :)

If that were the problem, he'd be getting either EACCES or EPERM, not ENOENT.

Sure sounds like it.
