Useful tips for Linux-like systems

This article might be short and pale in its early stage… I am planning on adding new content as soon as I learned something new.

systemd/systemctl

systemctl start --no-block <service> # Starting service without blocking(waiting for return)

tar

tar xfj <file>.tar.bz2
tar xzf <file>.tar.gz
tar xf <file>.tar.xz

df

df -l # List local disks only. Useful when your df hangs (usually caused by network mounting points)
