A couple quick things. Thinking back on this after recording, I think I did 2/3rds of the Arch update. The first step updated the system except Bash and Filesystem. The second step brought in bash populating /usr/bin and most likely removing the files from /bin /sbin. The third step I forgot to do. Which would have brought in "filesystem" making the symlinks in /bin and /sbin to /usr/bin.
I also realized while editing that I said /usr/sbin a couple of times when I meant /usr/bin. But, this was an 'off the cuff' episode. So, I just left it as is.

Very informative, nice to know Linode provides tools that emulate access to a bare metal host machine. I'd have never thought of the 32 bit vs 64 bit compatibility if you hadn't pointed it out. Would you also have to match distro and release versions to get the same libraries? If not, would you have to have the same kernel version on the ssh server and client?
