comment Character encoding problem with filenames - find broken filenames
@SirCharlo Sorry, I was wrong. It finds also those filenames with ASCI 7-bit characters - also those where the encoding is correct. But this is exactly what you claimed. I just filtered this output with another |egrep -v [äöüÄÖÜß] (all non-ASCII 7bit characters are german umlauts). Don't you want to convert your comment to an answer, since it was quite helpful too?

comment Character encoding problem with filenames - find broken filenames
@yossile looks like a promising approach, but I stopped trying after having a very long list of excluded symbols.

@SirCharlo Thanks, this seems to be at least partly successful! But it finds also a lot of filenames which doesn't seem to be affected at first glance.

comment Hardware logs storage?
I don't know if the log I mentioned provides a complete list of hardware problems. There might be something bigger. I suspect there is not one log, but you'll have to enable several specific montitoring abilities for the different hardware parts. But maybe somebody else knows more than I do. On the other hand: probably you are not the first one who tries to do something like this.

comment Hardware logs storage?
What kind of hardware related logs are you looking for? /var/log/messages contains also hardware related error messages from the kernel.

comment Command last does not show logins through sFTP, is there something similar or any logs?
Your answer and the Q&A you linked explain some details, but unfortunately don't solve my question. scp/sftp is not considered as interactive session, so there is no entry in /var/log/btmp or /var/log/wtmp. But if I want to check if a user is connected through sftp, I still don't know how to enable logging or where to find the logs.

Hm... I don't really get your question. I use OpenSSH.

comment Shut down after YouTube upload is finished
You should rather run the whole script as root. If you place a sudo command in the script, it will ask you probably for your password after uploading the video.

@Adobe What happens if you first run konsole and then enter there ./theScript.bash?

comment several start-up scripts?
@Lekensteyn ah great! Do think it matters if one adds custom (meaningless) parameters in Grub? One could easily use the grub menu for choosing such profile options.

Since "encryption" is mentioned in the question, I added a clarification in the answer. Feel free to improve it!

comment LTSP client synchronize blackberry address book & calendar with evolution
This sounds like a permission problem to me. I had strange problems when using ltsp-localapps not as root (both sudo ltsp-localapps and inside xterm then sudo -s). But maybe I don't remember everything right.

comment How to enable DHCP server to all subnets for PXE server?
Why do need several different subnets with only one server?

@Caesium yep, you are right. The example I linked above is doing something like that.

comment How to enable DHCP server to all subnets for PXE server?
I think this is wrong. Clients from the networks 172.29.33.0 and 172.29.34.0 won't be able to find the default gatway 172.29.32.1 - it's in a different subnetwork.
