Hi, I just wanted to let you know that I've had to fix your attempt to rename [[Modprobed db]] to [[Modprobed-db]], as what you did was creating the new page, pasting the content from the other one there and redirecting the old page: this has the consequence of leaving all the history of the edits on the redirect page, hiding all the credits to its contributors. Please next time make proper use of the "move" tool accessible from the top of each article. -- [[User:Kynikos|Kynikos]] ([[User talk:Kynikos|talk]]) 04:36, 17 November 2013 (UTC)

Could you add linux-uksm-ck in your source?

XBMC shutdown/reboot polkit rules

I undid your modification to the XBMC page, as the polkit rule that enabes poweroff and rebooting when using the systemd service is not present in the current package, as you implied in your modification comment. You can check yourself here. Any reason you thought it was? I added a bug report mentioning this issue here. --Palmaway (talk) 03:31, 9 June 2013 (UTC)

It's not the exact udev rule, but placing the user in the 'power' group, and invoking the shutdown option works for me. This can be reversed by removing the user for the power group, logging out and back in, and invoking the shutdown option again. Now, the box does not go down; xbmc just exits. So functionally, that udev rule is not needed. Graysky (talk) 10:44, 9 June 2013 (UTC)

I pasted this on the xbmc page in case others have comments. Thanks for bringing it up. Graysky (talk) 10:45, 9 June 2013 (UTC)

Unfortunately, this does not work for the systemd service, at least not on some systems. A good idea to post it there. I replyed there and modified a it the XBMC page too.

I don't use the service so I can't comment. If what you say is true than I agree that it's a good idea to keep the tip. Maybe qualify it with some text describing your observation. Graysky (talk) 21:42, 9 June 2013 (UTC)

wrt to your recent edits of General Recommendations

  • Please don't use contractions and don't change 'GB' into 'gig' [1]
  • The styleguide says giving instructions like 'pacman -S foo' is to be avoided [2]
  • Wouldn't [3] fit better in Sysctl? -- Karol (talk) 22:00, 10 August 2013 (UTC)
I corrected points 1 and 2. To the third, perhaps? Feel free to summarize in a sentence and paste into the other article if you feel it's a better fit. I have no objections.

About 3, I've merged it to Maximizing Performance, since General Recommendations should be just a list of links with small introductions. -- Kynikos (talk) 04:57, 18 August 2013 (UTC)

moving != copy-pasting

Hi, I just wanted to let you know that I've had to fix your attempt to rename Modprobed db to Modprobed-db, as what you did was creating the new page, pasting the content from the other one there and redirecting the old page: this has the consequence of leaving all the history of the edits on the redirect page, hiding all the credits to its contributors.
