In a lot of distros like Debian, ecryptfs will mount itself in /home/yourusername/Private
This is controlled by Private.mnt which may contain the mount path like this:

In this scenario, let's say you want to clone your OS at the filesystem level and the source system (the system you want to clone from) is in use.
Doing a blind rsync / is a big problem because it uses twice as much space for no reason.
The reason for this is that with ecryptfs you have a /home/.ecryptfs directory which has the actual encrypted versions of your files and folders. However your home directory (eg. /home/someuser) is mounted.
Doing the blind rsync will ca........
This happens during an apt update and is related to an issue with sources.list, which is particularly troubling, if you are doing a "live-build".

You get errors like below and see you have all question marks for the permissions if you go to /run/user/1000/gvfs
If you try to access the mounted share such as anything mounted as gvfs like an SSH share in your file manager you may get an error like this. It generally means an interruption in communication or a fault with gvfsd has caused it.
This container won't start after exhausting its memory. There are no relevant or helpful messages in dmesg or vzctl.log as well. Standard troubleshooting such as disabling PPP etc has not helped.

Here is a simple MP3 player and now there's a reason to understand why the supplied cable has some kind of capacitor and is very short. These devices can be VERY finicky and any voltage fluctuation or difference is enough to cause issues.

This was a surprising bug but I unplugged all drives for an array md127. At first it was just 1 drive and mdadm seemed to notice this. I unplugged the second drive taking the array offline but mdadm did not realize it was offline and still showed a non-existent disk as being part of it. This created problems trying to unmount it or even to stop this array with mdadm freezing.
As for how to fix it I can only think of making sure you are not in a mounted path of........
The only solution after trying many suggestions was to simply restart the "vz" service (definitely not preferable).

Sometimes I work with embedded systems/custom kernels without any of the fancy init scripts and other common Linux basics that most would expect.

I backed up everything in the /mnt/sd_card directory thinking that some dataloss could occur for some reason but purposely left my microSDHC unbacked up thinking that "it won't touch that since it's external" and Samsung's and other manufacturers website even say this (that it won't be affected and not to worry etc).
Apparently I was wrong, my microSD was "undetected" and asked to be formatted after the upgrade (there goes 3-months worth of family photos). No........

Moving to RAID was a pain.
What you have to do is the following from an existing install:
Create your mdadm RAID 1 array on your spare hard drive.
Start it with the missing disk.
rsync the entire contents of your current / to the md partition.
Here's a good way of doing it:
rsync -Pha --exclude=/proc/* --exclude=/sys/* --exclude=/mnt/* /. /mnt/md2........
From a LiveCD or if you're doing something like converting your non-RAID install to mdadm here's how you would chroot properly (you have to mount your proc, sys and dev on the running system/LiveCD to your chroot environment if you want things to work right, especially if you need to run update-initramfs due to a driver change etc..)
*replace "path" with your mount/chroot path

Different distributions such as Debian and Centos behave differently when trying to shutdown your system.
shutdown -H now on Debian does not do what you'd expect. The system won't power down, it will halt and do everything but power down.
shutdown -PH now will do the job though (actually power the system off). This is important to test especially if you are not near the system. If you just use -P it forcefully shuts off which is not........
I installed 5.5 with a 300GB RAID 1 partition (boot is also on this partition). It booted up fine the first few times until after I used a Live CD and accessed the array, and it became named /dev/md127 for some reason.
Now whenI boot into CentOS I get a kernel panic and different errors, once I got "invalid superblock", even though the array is fine (it didn't happen again, probably because I was sure to dismount and stop the mdadm array properly).
heartbeat is stopped for some reason
Anyway hnode2 was active and the services are running fine but I see heartbeat has been stopped somehow.

Clone any OS partition perfectlyIn one box I needed to copy the boot partition to another disk while retaining the MBR and other data.
I simply ran this command:
[code:1:1b1ff110ca]dd if=/dev/hda1 of=/dev/hdb1[/code:1:1b1ff110ca]
[b:1b1ff110ca]if[/b:1b1ff110ca] = source patition
[b:1b1ff110ca]of[/b:1b1ff110ca] = destination partition
