32-bit statically linked version of "rmdir", you can of course recompile
it if you think it's worth the effort. Since Knoppix 6.7, it is not
needed anymore since the kernel-internal cgroup scheduler handles it,
i.e. you can safely remove it.

Yes, in fact there are.


are not packaged, in order to avoid automatic upgrades and dependency
problems with the Debian standard system.

Hope this helps.
