Fedora :: Extract Specific Files From A .tar Archive?

Jul 20, 2011

I have a .tar archive of music that I would like to extract specific files / folders from. I've been looking at man tar but I don't seem to be able to find any information related to my quest, although someone will likely point out that it's right there in front of my nose

Anyhow, the file is called music_archive.tar and I would like to extract the folder /music/P/Pink Floyd/The Wall/. Anyone know how to do this

Ubuntu :: Middle / Right Click Drag To Extract Archive?

Oct 30, 2010

I have been looking for a solution to middle or right click dragging an archive to extract it to another folder without any success. It appears this question seems to be asked many times without a single response from anyone.

Quote:

The fact that right click on archive is also missing a simple 'Extract to...' compounds the problem. [URL]

General :: Tar Fails To Extract Archive Containing Special Characters?

Jun 5, 2011

The command tar -xvf wpa_tables.tar gives this error

tar: ./xai-0/334Regency: Cannot open: Invalid or incomplete multibyte or wide character
tar: Exiting with failure status due to previous errors

Obviously the backslash is giving tar some problem, but I've been all over the docs and can't figure out how to either make it skip this file or interpret the character literally. Here's my command history to show some of the options I've tried which don't work.

tar --no-wildcards -xkvf wpa_tables.tar
tar --exclude ./xai-0/\334Regency -xkvf wpa_tables.tar
tar --exclude "./xai-0/\334Regency" -xkvf wpa_tables.tar
tar --ignore-command-error -xkvf wpa_tables.tar
tar --ignore-failed-read -xkvf wpa_tables.tar
tar --transform 's/\/slash/g' -xvf wpa_tables.tar ./xai-0/\334Regency

I'm totally out of ideas at this point and would welcome some input from more experienced members.

Red Hat / Fedora :: Extract Files From A .dd File?

Jul 28, 2010

I have a file : cpq_cciss-2.6.20-34.rhel4.i686.dd which is designed to build a floppy disk; these floppy is used to hold disk driver which is not on RedHat CD-Rom. But this .dd is not complete: some files, like /drivers/pci.ids are missing.My idea is to extract all files from .dd file, put missing files and then re-create a new dd file. But, how can extract all files from initial .dd file, and then recreate a new one?

OpenSUSE :: 11.2 & OpenOffice 3.2 \ Find It Necessary To Extract Specific Data From Received?

Oct 14, 2010

Elsewhere is my question about 11.3. I have had to abandon that and 11.3 as my RAM is too small. Now, for the first time in many years, I find it necessary to extract specific data from received .pdf files. According to OpenOffice, editing of these files is only possible from version 3.2. My concern is whether this later vesion will be compatible with 11.2.OpenOffice installed is 3.1.1.4-1.1.4-i586. The same question has been directed to their Forum.

Programming :: Search A Bunch Of Files In A Specific Folder For A Specific Number?

Jul 24, 2010

I need to search a bunch of files in a specific folder for a specific number and add all the numbers together to a total sum. I use Rsync everyday, everytime I run rsync i get a logfile (rsync output) witch contains the textstring "Total bytes sent: xxxxxx".

The "xxxxx" can vary in lenght. I need to extract the "xxxxxx" from each file and add the numbers together to a total size over a week or a month. Is this possible? And I wish to only use bash. One way of doing stuff at a time my friends .

Fedora :: "less" Command Lists Contents Of (compressed) Archive Files?

Jun 13, 2010

I came across this feature of the "less" command today. It appears not to be well-documented so I'll share it here. I found that "less" can automatically uncompress compressed files - no need to run the first command, the second does the same job:

Code:

gunzip -c textfile.gz | less
less textfile.gz

Even better, "less" can read and list the contents of some archive files as well, including Tar files compressed using Gzip and Bzip2 as well as Zip files. So now when I want to list the contents of an archive,for example to determine whether the contents will be extracted to an absolute path or relative to the working directory, the following work

Code:

less archive.tar.gz
less archive.tgz
less archive.tar.bz2
less archive.zip

Much easier than remembering the various options that the Tar, Gzip, Bzip2 and Zip use. The best one for me is with RPM archives:

Code:

less some.rpm

The above outputs the Information, Change Log and verbose File List of the RPM (paging the output, of course!) The following commands (using short and long options) give the equivalent output using the "rpm" command:

Code:

rpm -qilvp --changelog some.rpm | less
rpm --query --info --list --verbose --package --changelog some.rpm | less

"less" does not recognise the initramfs file produced by "dracut" (which is a compressed "cpio" archive), but I suppose you can't have everything ...

OpenSUSE :: Exclude Files From A ZIP Archive?

Mar 21, 2010

opensuse v11.2, linux 2.6.31.12-0.1-desktop x86_64
ZIP v2.32

I wish to exclude some files from a zip archive. On other OSes to exclude an entire directory I would use the "-x" option like so:

Code:
zip -r archive-name * -x dir1/* Simple. And just add "-x"'s as needed (or use an exclusion file).

Not how it works here, it would seem. AFAICT all "-x" options are ignored. (The entries in an exclusion file also.) For instance, "-x diy/mplayer/*" should ignore everything in the <diy/mplayer> directory. It does not. I have tried fully qualified paths as well; no joy.

What is different about ZIP on linux?

Debian Installation :: Replace Only The Change Files From The Archive?

Aug 21, 2010

If I understand everything right I can use simple cd to create an install of my system then config everything and create an archive of /etc,/var,/usr and that give me a backup of my changed files. but what I am not able to do is create a script to replace the files with the archived version of the config files automatically. I need it to be ran as a post intall script or to configure the conf files as part of the install. what I configure on every reinstall. apache,proftpd,mysql,php,and wordpress. Since I am still learning I reinstall a lot and standard backups have not been working for me. But I can put the whole install including backup on one cd. Is there a way replace only the change files from the archive. or getting a list of just the modafied files on my system.
