There's also a tool called debsums which does roughly the same. So that gets you at least half way there.
Debian does not use Redhat kernels. Two different distributions, packing systems and philosophies.
Debian admins, however, do cherry-pick relevant fixes backported by RedHat to older kernels. Or rather used to do.
Secretaries get free lunches, flowers, cards, etc. so why not Sys Admins?
You're on an amd64 box, right?
AFAIK the 128TiB you see is the top half of the total 48-bit addressable space, spanning from -128 TiB to 128 TiB (the whole address space is 64 bits or 16EiB, but only 48 bits are ever used in todays amd64 CPUs, the available space occupying the top and bottom 128TiB chunks). The lower half belongs to userspace, the upper one to the kernel.
I may be wrong but I guess somebody will correct me then.
Because setting up and maintaining your own recursive DNS server is a pain in the ass?
apt-get install pdns-recursor
echo 'nameserver 127.0.0.1' >

!isatty(1) inside ls, influences formatting (like ls -1).
"gluck, gluck, gluck" is the sound you hear when you repeatedly slap a filled-up douchebag against the sidewalk? Seriously?
How about, "Ouch, ouch, ouch!"
You're doing it wrong.
