commandlinefu.com is the place to record those command-line gems that you return to again and again.
Delete that bloated snippets file you've been using and share your personal repository with the world. That way others can gain from your CLI wisdom and you from theirs too. All commands can be commented on, discussed and voted up or down.
You can sign-in using OpenID credentials, or register a traditional username and password.
First-time OpenID users will be automatically assigned a username which can be changed after signing in.
Every new command is wrapped in a tweet and posted to Twitter. Following the stream is a great way of staying abreast of the latest commands. For the more discerning, there are Twitter accounts for commands that get a minimum of 3 and 10 votes - that way only the great commands get tweeted.
Use your favourite RSS aggregator to stay in touch with the latest commands. There are feeds mirroring the 3 Twitter streams as well as for virtually every other subset (users, tags, functions,…):

Wow, didn't really expect you to read this far down. The latest iteration of the site is in open beta. It's a gentle open beta-- not in prime-time just yet. It's being hosted over at UpGuard (link) and you are more than welcome to give it a shot. Couple things:
Python virtual environment creation.
Work only with bash and apt-file installed.
When it found an unknow command, it will search for a file named "scribus" (in my example), in a folder named bin and then install the corresponding package.

Usefull juste after reinstalling linux and missing lot of package.
This is the first version of the Sublime Text 2 packaging so there might be bugs.
This is a command to be used inside of MS-DOS batch files to check existence of commands as preconditions before actual batch processing can be started. If the command is found, batch script continues execution. If not, a message is printed on screen, script then waits for user pressing a key and exits.
An error message of the command itself is suppressed for clarity purpose.
Like 7172, but much easier.

Use when aptbackup will not start or you just want to see what's going on.
on a dpkg managed system this PATTERN will help you generate .deb files from source AND remove all the dev libs you had to install. i hate cluttering up my machine with rouge packages and headers.
it would be pretty darn easy on rpm systems as well. i just dont have a rpm managed system to test on right now.
NOTE, you sharp ones will notice that it uninstalls the deb you just made! yeah, but the deb is still there to do with it what you want, like re install it. or you can just grep -v after the diff
Change the APP variable's value to whatever you want to install. Depending on how fast your machine is, you'll want to adjust the value 50 to something else. You might also want to play a different game than Gnometris - just make sure it's a GUI game.
RHEL / CentOS Support 4GB or more RAM ( memory )
The really awesome bash completion in debian seems to be an extra package now, which has to be installed. After sourcing /etc/bash_completion it completes almost everything (package names in apt... etc) :-)
To make this permanent, put something like this in your .bashrc:
if [ -f /etc/bash_completion]; then
The execution of this command will install a LAMP server (Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP) in a Debian based distribution. For example, in Ubuntu.
this is funny ;)
alias sl="ls" ... is the useful solution, but that's boring ;P and You won't learn to think before You type !
1 rpm -ivh package.rpm
2 yum localinstall package.rpm
3 Edit /etc/yum.conf or repository.repo and change the value of gpgcheck from 1 to 0 (!dangerous)
apt-get is pretty aggressive when it downloads, potentially hogging the bandwidth of your network. The 25 is in KB, change this to your needs.
