Re: General questions...
c) I know loads of text editors can do multi-file find/replace - but I
want to do this on a massive scale, it would mean opening up every text
file on the file system! - i.e. I want to -on mass- rename something
unique in all configuration files mentioning it
Don't you like CLI instead a GUI app? a single sed command line will do the job no matter how massive it is.
f) on a bizarre connected note, I know that Debian is *rock solid*
stable - but when doing an 'apt-get upgrade' I haven't noticed a since
new thing! is this normal? has theres really been nothing new since the
release! - my sources.list is fine btw
Yes it's "rock solid" normal.
