Software :: Create Certain Files And Directories With Specific Owners On The Target Machine

Jun 29, 2010

I'd like to create a tar file on my machine to distribute software to other machines which are all alike (including, usernames, groupnames, etc). I need to create certain files and directories with specific owners on the target machine. In order to do that, I use

tar --create --owner=someone --group=somegroup --file package.tar files. However, for this to work, someone must be in my /etc/passwd and somegroup must be in my /etc/group. Is there a way to fake this so I don't have to create a bunch of users only for that purpose?

Red Hat / Fedora :: Script Will Create Directories For A Specific Datatype?

May 24, 2010

1. This script will create directories for a specific datatype. Example rickk, rik, rikky etc.2. This script will aslo create subdirectories labeled by the duration of an event.For example if an event where to take place for 5 days, May 5 - 10th. Folders will be labled:20100505, 20100506, 20100507, etc will be included in each datatype.Since this exercise will take 6 days there will be 6 subdirectories under each datatype.3. This script will also create cgi scripts for each of the dataype and day of the the exercise.For example dataype "rik" for May 09 will read rik5.cgi, since May 09 is the 5th day of the exercise.This is how it looks so far, it works great but I realized that if and when I plan to add more datatypes that its going to involve alot of repetivie typing. I figure to simplify this whole thing would be best to use loops. Can someone direct me to some good information concerning loops and sample of loops? I have a feeling that what I need to do is going to involve a nest of loops.

cd $root_dir

Programming :: Spec Files To Create RPM Packages For The Target System?

Jun 10, 2010

I'm trying to debug a program that I crosscompiled on a arm9. The crosscompiler uses . spec files to create RPM packages for the target system. The program compiles and runs correctly except when i run the program with gdb and then type list I get this message: Code: 1 main.c: No such file or directory. in main.c I made sure I compiled the program with CFLAGS=-g by putting this in the .spec file. when the application crosscompiles (I believe) it shows it compiled succesfully with the -g flags: Code: checking whether gcc accepts -g... (cached) yes

General :: Multiple Users To Create Directories Over SFTP So The New Directories Keep The Same Permissions?

May 15, 2011

I want to make a webserver with multiple users allowed to login through SFTP to a specific folder, www.Multiple users are added, lets say user1 and user2, and all of them belonging to the www-data group. The www directory has an owner www-data and a group www-data.

I have used chmod -R 775 on the www folder, but after I try to create a folder test through my SFTP server (using Filezilla) the group of the directory created has only r and x permissions, and I am not able to log in with the second user user2 and create a directory within www/test due to a lack of w permission to the group.

I also tried using chmod 2775 on www directory, but without luck. Can somebody explain to me, how can I make it so that a newly created directory inherits the root directory group permissions?

Networking :: Route Only For A Specific Port And Target?

Mar 14, 2011

I have to route some packages over the right interface.I default route everything for the target-network over one network-interface. That works perfectly. But i have to route packages for one specific host and one specific port over another network-interface. I tried many things with the route-command, but i think there's no possibility to route only one port? May i can do this with iptables? I only found ways to forward some packages, which are coming in over one interface. But in my case all packages go out over one interface.

General :: Build A Glibc Version For Target Machine's Kernel?

Jan 8, 2010

AFAIK, in addition to implementing the standard C library, glibc provides wrappers for system calls, threading support, and basic application facilities. So because of that, glibc that will be used on my target system should be built based on the kernel version running on my target, right?

Based on the above, I am trying to build a glibc version for my target machine's kernel. However, I don't know to to build a glibc library for a target system and also where on the target's filesystem should be put? In which location Linux will start looking for the libraries required for a program to run (should I create an /etc/ file)?

Ubuntu :: Create A Directories That Always Stay On Top?

May 6, 2011

have been working how to do this for a while finally getting around to asking....

as a long time windows user I have used a trick of creating directories that will always be the first ones displayed by using an _foldername model, for ex:

A dir
B dir

assuming the four above are directories that is how they are sorted by default in windows and I commonly use this technique for special folders.

for my virtual machines folder in windows looks like this:


where I put base virtual machines in _base and it makes it easy to separate them for all the other folders which are virual machines....SO....

in Ubuntu, I cant figure out a character or way to ensure this type of behavior, for example if I create a _base folder it shows up after a dirs and around the bs etc...

any know a way to create a dir with a special char that will ensure it stays on top?
