Fedora :: Changing Run Levels - Error - Failed To Create Symbolic Link
Ok now since f15 does not use inittab file for default runlevel anymore how do you change it.

I have tried ln -s /lib/systemd/system/multi user.target /etc/systemd/system/default.target

And get the following error ln: failed to create symbolic link `/etc/systemd/system/default.target': File exists

I have even tried changing the /etc/systemd/system/default.target to my multi-user.target file to no aval.

Software :: Create A Symbolic Link That Points To An Ftp Location?
I have a large collection of files on a computer (tallgrass) and tallgrass is running an ftp server, which I have the username and password to. There is about 600 GB of files on tallgrass that I need access to, but I don't have a big enough hard drive. I need these data files to run a cpu-intensive calculation, and my CPU is significantly better than tallgrass' cpu, which is why I want to do it on my computer. (Tallgrass also doesn't have enough RAM.) What I would like to do is create a "symbolic link" on my hard drive that will point to the directory containing the data on tallgrass. Read-only is perfectly OK. This way I could read from mylink/data0001.dat and it would read from the file data0001.dat over ftp from tallgrass. I shouldn't have any speed issues because tallgrass is on my 1 Gbps LAN. Is there a way I can do this?

General :: Create A Symbolic Link To A Windows Directory?
I am running both Ubuntu and XP and have a local server for my computer on both systems. Both partitions have a www directory that is accessed when I type localhost into my browser.

I want to be able to work on the project in both systems and have the changes I make show in both. So my questions is how can I make "localhost" point to the windows www instead of the /var/www one when I start up the server?

General :: Possible To Create A Symbolic Link That Include Commands For Program?
Is it possible to create a symbolic link that include commands for the program?

For instance, I do the following to start the program:

./script -somecommannd

I would like to create a symbolic like that includes "-somecommand"

Is this possible? or would I need to create a second script that executes that command, and link to that script?

General :: Windows 7 - Create A Symbolic Link From An Ext Partition To A FAT32 Partition
On my Linux system, I want to create a symbolic link to a folder on my Windows 7 partition formatted FAT32. I use:

sudo ln -s /media/OS/Users/dennis/AppData/Roaming/.minecraft ~/.minecraft

However, I end up with a file in my home directory called .minecraft and when I try to access it, I receive:

bash: CD: .minecraft: Too many levels of symbolic links

is there a way to make the symbolic link to the FAT32 folder?

Ubuntu Networking :: Mount To Vista Needed For Apache - Symbolic Link Not Allowed Or Link Target Not Accessible
I have a problem where I'm using Ubuntu linux to mount a Windows Vista machine's USB drive and access it on the web using Apache. I did have the USB drive plugged into the Linux machine directly and that was working via the web. FollowSymLinks is on in httpd.conf

[Code]....

The mount works and I can see the files (see above) from my regular linux user account. If I make a test file in /mnt and soft link to that, I can see it on the web. So it's just the mount to the vista machine that seems to be a problem. It's supposed to be a simple read-only mount and the apache login should (I think) be able to see the same generic root access permissions.

log from apache: [Mon Apr 26 20:39:42 2010] [error] [client 99.99.99.99] Symbolic link not allowed or link target not accessible: /home/user1/pub_html/Music, referer: https://xx.xx.xx/~user1/music.html

The credentials have a login and password that matches a special read-only account on Vista. I can see the files on the system from Linux, but not via the web. As mentioned above, a different link to the same /mnt area works fine via the web. I've tried several different mount options with no success.

General :: Difference Between A Hard Link And Symbolic Link?
I have searched around and am trying to understand the difference between a hard link and symbolic link (soft link). I found this link is quite useful. But I am still not very clear. I understand soft link is not a copy of original file, but is a hard link a copy or not?

Ubuntu :: Unable To Remove Symbolic Link?
I created the following symbolic link:

Code:
ln -s /home/vichingo/.gvfs/"media on mybook" /media/mybook

this worked, only now I have a folder media on mybook within the mybook folder.

I wanted to remove this link, but when doing:

Code:
sudo rm /media/mybook/media on mybook

I get:

Code:
rm: cannot remove `/media/mybook/media': No such file or directory
rm: cannot remove `on': No such file or directory
rm: cannot remove `mybook': No such file or directory

for some reason I am either unable to remove the link or change the name of the folder to change the spaces into underscores.

Server :: Disable Symbolic Link Ln - S?
i made a symbolic link with this ln -s user so the user can view all the folders from ftp no just the home folder but now i see that all the ftp users can see all the folders so they can view everything not just they home folder If someone knows how to apply that just for one user, or the way to disable the link "ln -s" that ive made. I prefer to no one able to see all the folders but if you know how to ddo it for just one user will be good.

General :: Ubuntu Symbolic Link Content Of Folder
I have two folders such as
nonserved/
folder1/
folder2/

And a served folder via Apache
media/
js/
css/
img/

In the end, I want to include/append contents of /nonserved to /media so that [URL] will be as such:
/media
/js
/css
/img
/folder1
/folder2

I am running Ubuntu Server, I am up for either apache config or symbolic link based answer :) Plus nonserved folder is rather dynamic thus manual symbolic linking to each folder is impossible.

General :: Make A Symbolic Link Read Only?
Can you make a symlink read only? I have about 100 users who all have a .login. They like to modify their .login, which is fine in most cases, but sometimes they do it wrong & it screws up a LOT of the things they are supposed to be doing. Because of this, I'm going to lock down all .logins & I thought, "wouldn't it be nice if we could modify one file & all users would get the modification?" So I'm currently testing having everyone's .login point to a central .login via symlink. It works fine, but it appears that the users can [re]move the link & replace it with a file, thus defeating the purpose. Can I lock down the symlink so the user cannot move or remove the link? FWIW, it must be a symbolic link (as opposed to a hard link) as the file it points to is on an NFS share (not the same file system).

Programming :: Proposal For Symbolic Link Technology?
Consider that symbolic links at times can be broken. The target reference can be lost or misplaced. As such, usage of a symbolic link becomes deterred or broken. I propose the following: Symbolic links from now on carry a checksum relating to the original file they are linked to. The original file will carry a property that checks if it has been changed. This property will figure out the new checksum, reconfigure the symbolic link, and continue the symbolic link. Furthermore, if the system were to change, there would exist the possibility of have a symblink-comparison feature that allows the user to check the entire filesystem for files that meet the checksum criteria so that symbolic links can once more be re-established.

General :: How To Break A Symbolic Link Loop
While I was trying to compile a C shared object library, I accidentally created two symbolic links which point to each other. Is there a way to get rid of them without nuking the whole directory? I read that the only way to break a symbolic link is to delete the file it points to, but I'm sure there must be another way.

Ubuntu Networking :: Symbolic Link Paths Don't Work Over Network?
like to create symbolic links on our server which will work from any work station.I guess the problem is that they use absolute paths.Since the absolute path is different from each workstation, they don't work except for the computer on which they were created.Is there a way to make them use relative paths instead?
