    Why would I want symbolic links to be "followed"? How does this effect cd's behavior?

    CD rom's typically hold about 700MB. DVD's typically hold about 4.7GB. So let's say I make a filesystem about 4.5GB to copy to DVD. However somewhere in that filesystem, I have symbolic link to an external directory that is 10GB in size. If I "follow" that symbolic link. I going to try to put...

    Cron job not running successfully

    One of the flags for "sudo" is "-s" which is asking for which shell you want to run script under. So what is happening here.... sudo su - (some stuff) -s chema (more stuff) But -s is expecting something like bash, ksh, zsh, fish or csh. Usually you don't run "sudo" in a crontab. You...

    Sparse File Unpack turns into Infinite Data Suck

    I don't recall stating that. It is possible that it could be larger, although unusual.

    What exactly is the point of having faster RAM when older and slower RAM (and my whole older PC) loads things faster?

    There is some truth in this. Windows 3.1 used to come on a floppy disk. I used it on a 386 with 8 meg of RAM. (not a typo... Meg) and 266Mhz RAM. A few years later, I got another computer. A pentium with 128 meg of 667Mhz RAM. Now Windows came on a 650meg CD. It was 10 times bigger. So...

    Firewalling with iptables

    Almost all modern distro's do this by default. wlp59s0 looks like a wireless interface to me. Wifi is a little more challenging. Typically your firewall will disable everything except ping replies.

    Sparse File Unpack turns into Infinite Data Suck

    This has little to do with the fact it's a sparse file. This is also a compressed file. Like a zip file. Compressed files can easily grow to 10x or more of their compressed size.

    Finding all the kernel source files used when compiling against a certain config file

    It kind of depends on the distro. But for the most part, all you really need to compile the kernel is the kernel source file. Of course you need the development tools and a dozens of dev libraries. Assuming you have everything else already in place (i.e glibc, gcc, clang, etc... ) the kernel...

    corrupted file or virus?

    @dos2unix you have any clue here ? I've never had to do this. I run libreoffice however. I do get weirdly named tmpfiles frequently. Dozens of times every day. Almost every application that runs background processes will create tmpfiles. It's not a virus, (at least not in my case).

    Failed to install and run wine virtualbox VMware in Fedora 36

    Why do you need winehq? It isn't a standard Fedora rpm. I suspect this is breaking your wine. None of the standard Fedora repos (including rpmfusion) have winehq. Fedora rarely names it's packages any "stable". This is more of a Ubuntu/Debian thing. The only packages I've ever seen named...
