Software :: Program To Inspect Harddisk Location Of Files?

May 9, 2010

Does anybody here know a program (Linux-based or even Windows-based) which permits looking at the files structure of a harddisk in such a way that you can find out what file lies where on the harddisk?To specify further what I mean, back in the DOS days the Norton Utilities would show the distribution of files on a harddisk. It would show the harddisk as row upon row of rectangles, marked as used or not used, and the top left rectangles were the beginning of the harddisk while the lower right were the end of it.Now if a program put some files at the end of the harddisk it was possible to mark the filled rectangles and find out exactly which files were there.

Ubuntu :: Clone Harddisk To A New Harddisk?

Jun 18, 2011

how can I clone my installed ubuntu to a new harddisk? with 32bit ubuntu I have used:tar cvpzf -> create a tar file on my external nas system. after that I have done a restore tar xvpfz - worked with 32 bit.

Alternative I have mounted both disks and via another linux partition I have used:
cp -rvbdR /source/* /target

both methodes worked with ubuntu 32 bit. With 64 bit ubuntu I can NOT get it to work. error message after booting the clone: /var/lib/gdm/.ICEauthoriy ..

I can see that /source/var/lib/gdm has different rights as /target - will be part of the problem.
This did not happen with the 32 bit ubuntu - but why ?

Ubuntu :: Command Line To Copy Files From One Location To Another / Retain Source Files Group / User?

Feb 20, 2011

Is there a method at the command line to copy files from one location to another and retain the source files group and user?I'm migrating some MySQL files from one machine to another.I want to back-up the original files in the directory presently. They have owner:group of mysql, some have owner:group root:mysql and so on. To copy them under cli or Nautilus everything changes to root for I execute sudo cp or gksudo nautilus and copy via gui.

Since it is MySQL data I could simply do a dump of the database and restore it on the other machine. But there's about 20 db's and I want to do this via a copy for it will be faster - at least that is what I think.

General :: Location Of A Program Running In Terminal - Launched From Panel?

Dec 17, 2010

I am using DreamLinux. I have pinned a program, that runs in terminal, to the launcher in the panel on desktop. The program's executable file (name: feap) is located in /home/User/feap2.2 After I added the launcher to the panel that runs the file in terminal, the program asks for the input file (text file with alot of commands) when run. By default the program accepts the files that are located in the same directory i.e. /feap2.2 , so I placed the input file in the same directory.

However when I run the program from the panel, and give the input file name, it says no such file exists. Then I gave the file name with full path, but problem was not solved. I have tried alot e.g. placed the input file at other locations, but all in vain. I have set all input file permissions to be accessible by User as well. I will be much relieved if someone suggests where to place the input file for the such program running in the terminal launched from panels?

P.S: If I open terminal, go to the directory (/home/User/feap2.2), run the program's exe file, and then give the file name, it accepts the input file and it give results.

Networking :: Inspect SSL Traffic On LAN

Dec 1, 2010

I'm trying to inspect network traffic from my iPhone / iPad / Kindle / other wi-fi only consumer electronic device. To do this I man-in-the-middle myself (connect laptop to LAN via wire, create wireless Ad-hoc network, bridge the connections, then connect my device to the ad-hoc wi-fi network) and use Wireshark to watch the traffic.

In the past this has been adequate for my needs (just wanted to watch and see what potentially private info was being leaked about me / see that banking / amazon / etc apps were going over SSL). Now I've noticed that applications are almost all using SSL (which is great) but they are way to active for my taste. I'd like to use these apps but want to know what's happening in the background. I know that corporations dead-end SSL connections at their proxys to inspect the traffic and then re-establish the connection on behalf of the user for the trip across the internet. While I find the corporate use a bit distasteful, I think this is exactly what I'd need to do to myself. Any suggestions for how to do so or other ideas on how to get the packets in the clear?

General :: How To Compile Gstreamer - Gst-inspect Can't Cd

Dec 8, 2010

I am able to compile gstreamer just fine, but when I port it to the platform where I want to use gstreamer gst-inspect comes back with: "can't cd to /home/MY_HOME_FOLDER".

MY_HOME_FOLDER is the folder where gstreamer and all of its tools got compiled in.

So, how do I tell configure script (or whatever decides to remember this path) to use common Linux paths so when I port gst-inspect to /usr/bin it would work OK?

Ubuntu Installation :: Inspect And Evaluate The Mbr On A Disk?

Aug 5, 2011

How can i inspect and evaluate the mbr on a disk in a computer?

I'm interested in how to do this in general.

I can use gparted to see the partitions on a disk, but i don't know how to use it, or any other tool, to see just what is in the mbr.

The particular situation i'm in is that i have two disks in my computer. One has ubuntu 10.10 on a single partition, and one has 11.04 on one of 4 partitions.

The 11.04 disk used to be bootable, but somehow i messed up the disk: longer story: i installed another os on another partition, and the other os redid the mbr and installed a different version of grub, and i tried to reinstall grub but ended up with a disk that wouldn't boot. So i put my old 10.10 disk back into the machine so that i could at least boot and look around on the 11.04 disk.

Now, there are probably ways that i could recover the 11.04, but i would like very much to be able to systematically analyze the 11.04 disk to determine its exact current state before modifying it.

Since the disk is not mounted it seems like this should be in reach: i want to be able to (a) capture the mbr from the 11.04 disk [into, say, a file on the 10.10 disk] (b) get an analysis of what the mbr would do (where it points to etc, and what is at where it points to) (c) get any high level information which can easily be determined from (a) and (b).

Networking :: IPTables - Inspect / Modify DNS Requests?

May 10, 2010

I'm trying to work out a way to inspect/modify dns requests as an advertising filter. Iptables is a good place to do this, but I'm having some problems disassembling the packet. On my dev box, when a DNS reply is returned from a request made on the dev box. I use this rule to route the reply packet through a queue:

iptables -A INPUT -p udp --sport 53 -j NFQUEUE --queue-num 1

Will the rule catch the inbound udp packet with the dns reply in it? I get something in the queue, but it's unintelligible when attempting to disassemble the packet. I don't want to move onto looking at my program until I get some feedback on the rule.

Here's a primitive diagram of what I'm working towards:
host ->DNS request->iptables(no outbound rules)-> DNS Server
->DNS Answer ->iptables(queue udp 53 packets)
->inspect packet program-> Allow/Deny -> host processes allowed packets

All goes well until I get to this -

What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running kernel? [usr/src/linux/include]

When installing the vmware tools it says to just hit enter and the default will be used.

Hitting enter just keeps giving me the error message- The path "usr/src/linux/include" is not an existing directory.
