comment How to make it so that a file can only be executed by root, but not as root?
@heemayl setuid in this case is an executable provided by the package super. I'm guessing it setuid(2)'s and then forks or executes the command desired.

comment Cannot update grub with paramters on live USB
@zenith that's because your disk is partitioned using GPT. I don't have a system with it so I'm not particularly familiar with its operation and how a bootloader works on it.

I'm a bit unfamiliar with Xorg--is /etc/Xorg.conf the only thing outside the kernel/module management I'd need to back up? Or, do I need to back up or change other Xorg-related files?

Thanks! I'll look at the package contents and see if there is in fact a blacklist. Both of these steps (dkms and checking blacklists) were ones I missed when I was first trying it.

@Dani-Br This is a community-wiki post, meaning that others are welcome to edit it, and you have enough reputation to do so (at 101). I've added .bin for now.
