I am trying to write a script that will create a directory, copy files to it, zip them, move the zip file to the desktop and clean up.However, when I run the script, it comes back stating that I do not have permission to make the directory. I wanted to know how to add the permission into the script to allow for access to whoever runs the script to pull the logs, but won't leave the system in the root user?here is what I have for code so far:
I am writing a bash script to run everyday and output results to a file. When the same results are produced i want to overwrite the line from the previous day. (Or remove and add). So if the script finds a variable in a line. i want it to output the results to that line . sed -i did not work for me; sed: couldn't open temporary file ./sedTvOCEg: Permission denied
want to run VirtualBox with root permissions. Trouble is that only when run as root i can access attached USB devices inside of a virtual machine, otherwise, these a greyed out).Now running VirtualBox as a root user also changes the configuration folders, making all my virtual machines already defined disappear. I also don't want to copy all to the root configuration folders. Is there a way to give the VirtualBox root permissions but without actually running the application as a root user. Is it possible to do without changing the permissions of the non-root user, i.e. i don't want my user to have all root permissions, due to security considerations.
I tried to execute the following command: $ ./eval_online_wiki.ml -db_user aa -db_pass bb -db_name cc It returned as follows: bash: ./eval_online_wiki.ml: Permission denied What does this mean? How to solve the problem? Actually, I was following a README, and it says "$ ./eval_online_wiki -db_user <username> -db_pass <pwd> -db_name <db_name>"
I'm trying to run a backup using CPIO to an LTO2 tape in an HP Ultrium 460 drive using the following:find / -path /proc -prune -o -print | cpio -o -H crc --block-size=128 > /dev/st0Each time I get the error:-bash: /dev/st0: Permission deniedThis is regardless of whether I sudo the two sides of the command or not. I have used dd if=/dev/st0 of=/tmp/test.file ibs=128k count=1 to verify the blocksize (and since I was a little confused about block-size in cpio I also tried --block-size=256)
trouble when I log in the fedora as a normal user(not root) today. When I fill the username and the password press enter key. Then pop up a little window locate at topleft corner. And have one line message : "/usr/bin/xterm : Could not exec /bin/bash : Permission Denied"hen I log in as root, it's ok. And when I open shell and type "su username" then the console print "su: /bin/bash: Permission denied"I have checked the perms of "/bin/bash" , it's 755. And I have tried all things which suggested from articles searched through Google. like change / or /root and other directory's permissions but failed

Firstly, i'm NEW to Linux and my very first time with DSL. I'm installing this on an older Dell Latitude laptop.
I just finally got the DSL installed on my HDD successfully and then I added feh to start and run at start up, then I rebooted and now i'm getting this error: No, directory, logging in with HOME=/ -bash: cd: /home/dsl: Permission denied
I have tried reading numerous websites but none explains to the level whereby I can understand. I even tried rebooting from the CD, but could not figure out how/what to do next?
The question is, can someone explain how I can use the DSL CD to try to correct this error. More importantly, can you explain in layman terms so that I can actually put it good use.
Also, some additional questions I have....when you download a file where does it save to?

I would like to know how do I print the line # in a script. My requirement is, I have a script which is about ~5000 lines long. If there are any errors happen I just exit. And I would like to add the line # of the script where the error happened.
Code: #!/bin/bash trap "echo 'you got me'" SIGINT SIGTERM # to trap ctrl+c echo "Press ctrl+c during 5 sec loop" for ((i=0;i<5;i++)); do
How come code behaves normally and stops when ctrl+c signal is caught and resumes, but after I use at least one timeout read in the code it looks like, if signal is caught again it doesn't pause the execution but skips the loop. If you remove -t (timeout) option from the read, both loops look the same!
I understand at least some of the advantages of this multi-user set-up, but why would you have to become root to stick a DVD in the machine? I suppose I could go into root and chmod the mount command, but - why would it have been set up that way at all? Is it paranoia?
Now in my bash script, I want to get the output /home/user instead of $HOME once read. So far, I have managed to get the $HOME variable but I can't get it to echo the variable. All I get is the output $HOME.
I have written quite a few separate bash & scripts and php scripts that up to now I have run from cron jobs. However I have to estimate how long each takes to run, before running the next and so it probably takes much longer than necessary to run them all. They have to run in order.
Now there are so many I am thinking it would be better to have a master bash script that would run one after the other, but I am not sure how to get the master script to wait before starting to run the next script. Is this possible and is there a command that will make the script wait between bash and php scripts , for them to finish, before running the next?
I'm running 188.8.131.52-95.fc14.i686 on Gnome 2.32.0. I've been trying to assign a keyboard shortcut to Suspend the system when activated, but it doesn't work because to suspend the system you need to be root. The command I've been using for the shortcut is terminal "pm-suspend".I don't wanna set up the working user as root. Is there any way to get around the root authentication while suspend to make the shortcut work?
I have a system in which I do not have root access to. On that system, I have my own directory which I share with other users. I am trying to clean it up when I noticed that there was a subdirectory created by another users in my group that I cannot delete. It has all the permissions set besides global write. How can I delete this folder without root permission? I can't even chmod or chown it.

As root I get the following result: ngssuse:~ # traceroute -nI 10.200.123.45
Note: the -i and -I options were exchangedfor compability with LBL traceroute Use -I for ICMP, and -i <ifname> to specify the interface name unable to create ICMP send socket: Permission denied. Is this a bug?
