It's not an option – it's the device name. Remember that the syntax for mount(8) is: mount [-t fstype] [-o options] device mountpoint So even for filesystems that don't correspond to a specific device, you still need to give a dummy name, whether it's none or tmpfs or fluttershyfs.

Do yourself (and your loved ones) a favor and move out of manual system configuration as soon as possible! You should start using system configuration management software. The original use case for such software was management of large number of hosts (for some definition of "large"). However the underlying premises hold for the management of even a single ...

Memory I fully agree that, no matter how fast your RAM is, having 4GB or less will not give you the best experience, so a ceiling score of 5.9 is understandable. Granted, "Memory ops per second" is a bit misleading since other factors come into play here (like the amount of RAM) so perhaps they should have kept it even simpler (never thought that was ...

There's a compiler called asp for creating such files available here. The problem with these now is that terminals are just too darn fast. This technique was used with slooow serial or dial-up connections. The techniques relies on sending a really large file consisting of text, carriage returns and sometimes newlines.

The first was to change ...
