comment Trick installer to use btrfs root with compression
I wish I could triple-upvote this, because this is now the third time I forget how to do this properly, and this is still where I end up googling for it intensively. Though you need to use sudo on most points, of course, which might not be obvious to less experienced users. So cool!

comment Cannot update grub with paramters on live USB
Tried this, and got "Attempting to install GRUB to a partition disk or to a partition. This is a BAD idea. Embedding is not possible. GRUB can only be installed in this setup by using blocklists. However, blocklists are UNRELIABLE and their use is discouraged.". Tried --force which made it install, but it destroyed grub and left the USB stick unbootable. That was with 14.04. Any other ideas?

comment What user settings control audio access?
Awesome! The "sudo gpasswd -a user1 pulse-access" part did the trick here after upgrading from 12.04 to 13.10 and having my (system mode) PulseAudio server refusing to play anything :) Now to figure out how to get XBMC to actually use pulseaudio! Thank you!

comment How do I target a specific driver for libata kernel parameter modding?
Cool! Glad it helped :) Btw, if anyone wonders, these days there aren't a /var/log/messages in *buntu — a dmesg|tail should help out instead.

comment Any way to back up a remote host with rsync without opening up for root access on either end?
I was hoping for an even easier way, but there probably isn't, and your way is a very good alternative, so I'm accepting it as the correct answer. Thank you for the help :)

comment Any way to back up a remote host with rsync without opening up for root access on either end?
@DaboRoss that's what I want, the problem is to preserve ownerships and permissions. Even if some files can be sent as non-root and have their ownership changed, a subsequent update would fail because those files would no longer be owned on the receiving end by the SSH user. But thanks :)

That's very interesting, I had no idea tar could do incremental backups like that. It's still not optimal for large files like DBs (since it would send the entire file again once it changes), but it might very well work for other, more "normal", files like /etc, www, etc. Thanks :)
