  3. [ubuntu] AppArmor preventing me from using video chat

    .ab

    [all variants] /usr/bin/sort sorting improperly.

    /usr/bin/sort has a weird quirk, and I am totally stumped as to why it's sorting strings in an unexpected order.

    .a
    aa

    [SOLVED] Re: sudoers - NOPASSWD tag not nopasswd-ing
