General :: Unzip Command: Option To Force Overwrite?

Jan 26, 2010

I am writing a shell script that unzips a ZIP file into an existing hierarchy of files, potentially overwriting some of the files. The problem is that the unzip command asks for confirmation: replace jsp/extension/add-aspect.jsp? [y]es, [n]o, [A]ll, [N]one, [r]ename: y

This is unacceptable for a script.I need an option to force unzip to overwrite the files.I did not find in the man page nor with Google.

Debian :: Can Force Overwrite When Updating / Upgrading

Aug 5, 2015

While updating and upgrading, I got this at the command prompt:

Code: Select all ==> Modified (by you or by a script) since installation.
 ==> Package distributor has shipped an updated version.
   What would you like to do about it ?  Your options are:
    Y or I  : install the package maintainer's version
    N or O  : keep your currently-installed version
      D     : show the differences between the versions
      Z     : start a shell to examine the situation

 The default action is to keep your current version.

OpenSUSE Network :: Force NetworkManager To Overwrite Resolv.conf?

Oct 21, 2009

I'm having some trouble with my networkmanager on openSuse 11.2. I want it to get the DNS Server from DHCP, but it notices that I had another process modify it (dhcpcd to be exact) and it just won't overwrite it, resulting in an out of date DNS server to be used.

General :: How To Load A Kernel 2.6 Module With F Force Option?

Jan 21, 2010

I have a loadable module, simple enough I believe it should run on any 2.6 kernel. I want to force the load and test that assumption. How can I do it?

ismod does not seem to notice the -f in 2.7 modprobe has -f but cannot locate the module.No go. So I read the manpage for modprobe which says: modprobe looks in the module directory /lib/modules/'uname -r'.So I copied MYMODULE.ko to /lib/modules/2.6.(the only directory in here) and type: modprobe -f MYMODULE.ko.Still can't locate MYMODULE.ko.I notice there are no other .ko modules in that directory; so I go in deeper to kernel/drivers/char, guessing about the char directory, and copy MYMODULE.ko there.

General :: Command To Overwrite File With Sed Output?

Jan 5, 2010

For example I want a file to be processed by sed, and then overwrite the file with sed's output. I would try this:
sed '<regex goes here>' myfile > myfile
But it doesn't work as expected, instead it empties the file (I am thinking that as the first byte comes out of sed, it overwrites the whole file and sed has nothing more to do). How can I make this work?

General :: Bash Dirs Command And +N Option?

Feb 8, 2011

I'm trying to use the dirs command with the +N option. The manual says: dirs [-clpv] [+n] [-n]Without options, displays the list of currently remembered directories. The default display is on a single line with directory names separated by spaces. Direc- tories are added to the list with the pushd command; the popd command removes entries from the list. +n Displays the nth entry counting from the left of the list shown by dirs when invoked without options, starting with zero.

dirs -v shows:
0 /dir1/
1 /dir2/
2 /dir3/

However, dir +n 1, dir +N 1, dir -v +n 1, dir -v +N 1 all give:

General :: When Extract The Tarball - Forgot The '-C' Option Of The Command 'tar'

Apr 23, 2010

I tried to install gfortran on my computer. When I extract the tarball, I forgot the '-C' option of the command 'tar', which should be added, according to the instruction of installation.

That is to say, I wrote in the mp directory:

Then, the tarball creates a '/usr' directory under '/tmp' directory, and it contains only a /local directory, which contains only a /gfortran directory.

The thing is, when I modify the name of this directory, for example, from /usr to /usr-modi, I found that the name of the directory /usr under the root directory is also changed from /usr to /usr-modi.

How can I delete this annoying /usr directory under /tmp, without tragically affect /usr under the root directory?

General :: Use '{}' To Redirect Output Of A Command Run Through Find's -exec Option?

Jan 10, 2011

I am trying to automate an svnadmin dump command for a backup script, and I want to do something like this:

find /var/svn/* ( ! -name dir -prune ) -type d -exec svnadmin dump {} > {}.svn ;

This seems to work, in that it looks through each svn repository in /var/svn, and runs svnadmin dump on it.

However, the second {} in the exec command doesn't get substituted for the name of the directory being processed. It basically just results a single file named {}.svn.

I suspect that this is because the shell interprets > to end the find command, and it tries redirecting stdout from that command to the file named {}.svn.

General :: Not Allowed To Unzip A File In DIR?

Feb 25, 2010

I have a problem where I have certain foo.tgz files that are to big to gunzip in a directory, the box that it is on has limited space in /var/tmp for all intents and purposes. I did the standard gunzip -l to see how big the file was.

How can I look in the .tgz to see what files are there and pull out only the ones that I need. tar -t foo.tgz doesn't seem to work or am I doing something wrong?

Once I do find the file how do I only extract the one file from the .tgz, remember I can't uncompress the entire foo.tgz

General :: Unzip To Same Directory As Zipped File?

May 6, 2011

So I have a script that simply unzips a file with a line:

unzip /path/to/

which unzips and puts the unzipped directory in the same directory as my script. The issue is, I want the unzipped directory to be in the same directory as the original zipped file.

I googled and found the -d flag which would let me specify what directory to put it in but the script asks the user to define the directory so I don't see how I could use that (because the user specifies the path all the way to the zipped file, not just the directory where the zipped file is)

Fedora Networking :: Samba Broken / Error 6291, The "force User" Option Is No Longer Working?

I ran "yum update" on 03-06-2009 and it updated my samba version from


My network shares then became read only!After some digging it turns out my system is not working because of Samba bug 6291, the "force user" option is no longer working.

Ideally I would run another "yum update" and that would fix the problem. Apparently the bug has been fixed in Samba 3.4.0pre2 - when can when we expect that to be released and included when I do a "yum update"?

Alternatively how do I get back to version 3.2.8-0.26.fc10.x86_64 ?
