comment How to let built-in DHCP assign a static IP to LXC container based on name, not MAC address
Also, I was not able to assign ip-addresses using container name alone. I had to hard-code a MAC address for the container and for the DHCP configuration.

It works for me, but note that you have to restart lxc-net for it to take effect. And there is a known issue that lxc-net doesnt restart if any container is currently started. You need to stop all of them and then restart the lxc-net service.

comment Very slow conversion with avconv (libav) - Trusty Tahr 14.04?
The -vn option has to be provided after the input is specified. Otherwise it doesn't seem to have an effect.

comment Catching runaway processes
@Jobin Ah thanks. I didn't know about it. But in my case, the process is responding to Ctrl-c, but the system itself has slowed down, and the Ctrl-c reaches the process very slowly.

comment Limit the parallelisation of Upstart?
Yes, I did skim through the cookbook. What I need is a system-wide setting which throttles the parallel execution of all tasks. Right now, my hard disk is saturated during startup, which I believe is due to a large number of tasks getting spawned simultaneously.
