DMIDECODE arguments

If I remember well the dmidecode package is not installed by default.

You can invoke dmidecode to get the BIOS version only:

$ sudo dmidecode -s bios-version

But using cat as you mentioned does not require admin privileges.

--worktree-attributes
nah dog, if you commit the .gitattributes file first you don't need that option. go look up the definition of worktree as it relates to git

easy way

Hi, there is easy way, install grub-imageboot, put iso file in /boot/images, update-grub, reboot. From grub menu select your iso file.

This works for me. Regards, Jamil Djadala

Look at 50unattended-upgrades

Did you look in the comment in /etc/apt/preferences.d/50unattended-upgrades? Yes, it is was so incomplete you did have to read the source to find out how to use it. And like you I did that. And then I wrote it up like you did here, and filed a bug whinging about it to the maintainer for good measure.

The maintainer turns out to be a very nice fellow. So now in jessie it's I think it's pretty good doco, although I'm probably not the best judge since I wrote it.

Re: ...how to LXC other Debian flavours ?

BTW, Can you expando on ? :

sudo MIRROR=http://http.debian.net/debian lxc-create -n sid64 -t debian -- -r sid -a amd64

how could i install another Debian flavour (say Wheezy) ?

If you replace -r sid with -r wheezy in the above, you'll get a container running Debian stable instead of Debian unstable.

You can also change -a amd64 to -a i386 if you want a 32-bit container instead of a 64-bit one.
