comment How can I run programs in /usr/local/bin without sudo or root?
Hard to know from what you posted. It is either : 1. /usr/local/bin is not on your path , 2. wrong permissions (chmod a+x /usr/local/bin/your_program) or 3 your program requires root priviliges to run, such as for example using a priviliged port.

Usually it is best to give your package a higher number rather then a new name.

comment How to copy a line in vi and paste it to console?
@ParanoidPanda - Not really, although some people use it for that. It is a basic, non graphical interface and useful on headless servers or as a fall back or rescue mode on systems where the graphical interface fails. Regardless, the question is how to obtain copy-paste functionality in the console which is obviously useful. GPM also provides additional functionality such as rebooting when the keyboard fails, see the man page.

comment If I have disable recovery option and someone still get's to root using the ro recovery nomodeset how do I password protect root?
AFIK physical access is root access as you can always boot a live usb and access the hard drive. IMO the best option is full encryption (LUKS) or at least encrypt any sensitive data

comment Could slow Chrome response be due to an ill-behaved Chrome extension?
It is standard to start debugging browsers by first disabling all extensions. You can then determine if the problem is with the extensions. And yes, extensions are probably the single most common source of problems for browsers.

comment can I change uname?
Is there some reason not to run Centos then ? It is difficult to know how they are perfroming OS detection. You could edit /etc/issue perhaps?

comment can I change uname?
You would need to either recompile the kernel (and give it a different name) or recompile the DSV so it does not check, or see how DSV checks your OS.Run the script from here - accelrys.com/products/collaborative-science/… and contact upstream.

@isomorphismes which is why the first option - remove KVM. the kvm kernel module conflicts with the vmware module. You might be able to manually load/unload the kernel modules, I am not sure with vmware.
