@Mr.Pallazzo You're very welcome. Feel free to bug me with any questions you might have, my ubuntu.com email address is listed on my launchpad profile (if you login to launchpad), and you can find me in the Ubuntu IRC channels if you need any specific help (nick: Resistance, IRC network: irc.freenode.net) I also recommend the channels #ubuntu-packaging and #ubuntu-motu on irc.freenode.net if you need any additional assitance :)

comment How do I create a deb package for a single python script?
As a packager (and a backporter), I package python scripts fairly often. I can safely say that this answer here is the most complete explanation of what to do to create a package for a single python script.

additional comment In short, you cannot create a single .deb file that will always work in various Ubuntu versions. This is because of various libraries and versions, as I detail in my answer below. The long explanations exist within my answer below, as well as comparison examples so you can see why building packages separately for each version of Ubuntu is preferred.

comment PPA & Packaging: Having versions of packages for multiple distros
NOTE FOR OTHER QUESTIONS THAT LINK TO HERE!!! Copying existing binaries DOES NOT ALWAYS WORK for programs that are destined for other versions of ubuntu! See my rkhunter PPA and the changelogs for the Lucid version to understand what I mean: launchpad.net/~trekcaptainusa-tw/+archive/rkhunter/+packages

I asked this very same question to the Ubuntu MOTUs a while back, and my answer below is similar to the explanation they gave me. Since then, i've been packaging stuff for various projects (and backports) actively, with their guidance and knowledge.

comment Whitelisting ports for detection in rkhunter
well i should have posted to my own question here stating an issue... there actually was a bug in the version I was using many eons ago. Turns out they didnt process the list correctly in that version. 11.04 does not have this bug :P (marked as answer because it does provide the config examples)

(out of comment space) As well, I'd use the version that has the "Gold" rating for R. But that's just me.

comment running .bat on ubuntu using wine
@wineRy i'm not an expert with installing things on Wine. Personally, I run a Windows VM for Windows things, so i'm probably not the best person to ask how to install R within wine. I'd assume the process would be the same, but check appdb.winehq.org/… for compatibility charts of software on Wine.

comment How can I backup VPS server while it is running?
Then their alternative is to have the host do an LVM snapshot, or have the host initiate some type of snapshot/backup system. Otherwise, my statements here should work for most data, including some active data.
