    [ubuntu] Re: Fun with GNU find (BUG!)

    It has nothing to do with find. It is the way expressions evaluate in the shell, even before your command-line parameters reach find. Try this, maybe it will give you an understanding.

    [ubuntu] Re: Updating Mozilla's Firefox

    apt-getting won't help SuperSonic4 as the guide he has followed instructed him to dpkg-divert away all updates to firefox. So, only /opt/firefox/firefox will be run no matter how much you apt-get.

    No, setuid will be used by you to drop privileges from root to a normal user. So your shell will need to run as root, but for safety it will drop to ordinary user when it is possible.
