comment Error message when I run sudo: unable to resolve host (none)
@Dennis You can still execute sudo even if that message is displayed. IIRC you still have to enter your password at each invocation though. If this does not work, you can reboot into the recovery console and apply the changes. A root account with password is discouraged.

comment What happened to the ia32-libs package?
@FelipeMicaroniLalli You need to replace package-name by the actual name. Use ldd to figure out, see the second comment above.

comment How can I swap the Fn key for a Microsoft All-in-One Media keyboard?
The "non-apple computer keyboards" vary greatly in their features, so it is not really helpful. USB HID keyboards may have an additional method to switch the key state (which can be exposed by the driver as you demonstrate with hid_apple). Can you add the output of the sudo lsusb -v -d 045e: command to your question (it will display properties for Microsoft devices, limit the output to your keyboard if you have multiple entries).

@Maximilian Please look up the documentation for the root directive and the alias directive of nginx.

comment Redirecting depending on directory
@Maximilian Ok it is a bit clearer now. You want to make this nginx server handle all requests to /foo/ while passing all other requests to 192.168.0.20. Then the configuration as provided should work. Are you sure that the posted configuration is complete? Please check the error logs before posting again.

comment Redirecting depending on directory
@Maximilian The error log is at /var/log/nginx/error.log. Please edit your question with a configuration which already works and describe what extensions you are trying to make. Your question is too vague to give a meaningful answer.

@Maximilian What "does not work"? Have you checked your error and access logs? Have you read the documentation?

comment How can I capture network traffic of a single process?
Great idea, but beware of the "limitations". Since this is a separate namespace, you cannot communicate with local processes in the default namespace using the loopback address(es) or UNIX domain sockets. The latter affects communication over D-Bus.

comment How to list recursive file sizes of files and directories in a directory?
@nikoskip nice tip! Also nice to know is the shorthand, --max-depth=1 can be shortened to -d1.

comment Where does my installed file reside
@karel I have no idea what is the problem, there are generic debugging steps she/he could take though. In the future you can also mail me at peter@lekensteyn.nl (flag this as obsolete so it can be removed)
