That doesn't work for machines with no desktop or ones that you
access via ssh. Learn the command line first then you can always get
the machine to do what you want regardless of how you need to access
it. Indeed, typing commands is often faster than using the mouse,
especially if you know how to use command history search
effectively...

That's just wrong. If you've got an XFS problem or question, then
this mailing list is exactly the right place to be asking for help.

Cheers,
