General :: Any Way To Diagnose Tar When Files Missing On Extract?

Aug 3, 2010

I have tar files where I archive about 250 files, each about 80 Mb, without compression. In a few cases tar is only returning some of the files. For example, when doing an extract of the file using:
tar -xvf 356.tar
I got only 103 files, when it should return 255 files, but tar does not give me an error. Furthermore, the tar archive is 15.8 Gb while the extracted folder is just 6.4 Gb. The tar files were created using:
tar -cvf 356.tar 356
where 356 is the name of the folder. All the steps where done in the same machines, under Ubuntu 6 and newer. Any ideas if there is a way to recover the files that are not being extracted?

General :: Using 'dd' To Extract Files From DataPlow FS?

Jun 19, 2010

I haven't been to this site in quite a while, since it changed from LNO in fact. Good to see this place is still around, albeit under a newer name.

I'll get on with the problem. I've got a Netgear SC101T that I was using to store my files on. Some of you may know it uses the DataPlow SAN file system. It worked fine until I installed a firmware update which, for some reason, broke the mirror array. I've hated this POS ever since and want to pull the data from the drives and toss the box. The problem is, linux doesn't have support for this particular file system scheme.

What I'm wondering is, how does 'dd' work, in regards to keeping the file system. Does it simply copy files and disregards the structure, or does it make an exact copy, DataPlow FS and all? Anyone else ran into this conundrum?

General :: Untar And Only Extract Those Files That Are Above A Certain Date

Jun 16, 2010

Is there any way to untar and only extract those files that are above a certain date including directory structure??

I restored a backup on a play server but it was a few days old. However I have a tar archive of the entire structure that is more up to date and healthy so now I want to extract all files (including directory structure) based on a date filter on the files if possible?

General :: Why Does "unrar" Extract Everything Fine Except For *.html Files

Dec 18, 2010

When I try to extract different archives, files with the extension *.html never unpacked. Files with other extensions of the same archives successfully decompressed. Why is this happening?

I have Ubuntu 9.10 and Unrar 0.0.1.

General :: Extracting A Bzip2 File Throws "Can't Guess Original Name" And Does Not Extract Separate Files

Dec 13, 2010

I made a bzip2 file by

bzip2 -c /home/os/picture1 > /home/os/Desktop/pic.image

bzip2 -c /home/os/picture2 >> /home/os/Desktop/pic.image

But now extracting pic.image by bzip2 -d /home/os/Desktop/pic.image returns

bzip2: Can't guess original name for pic.image -- using pic.image.out

And then it just creates one file pic.image.out.

How do I access picture1 and picture2 from pic.image?

General :: Lenny Freezes - CTRL+Alt+Backspace Does Not Work - Diagnose ?

Apr 2, 2010

I recently switched from Windows XP to stable Debian w/KDE on my work dell B120 laptop. I have been trying to diagnose freezes. In the evenings I have been leaving an SSH connection to my home computer. I leave a command running that writes the current time to a file every ten minutes. The past two nights it has stopped writing the time after a couple hours (not at the exact same time), and I am no longer able to ssh from my home computer to my work computer.

When I get back to work, the work laptop is frozen. CTRL+Alt+Backspace does not help, neither does CTRL+ALT+F1. Ctrl+Alt+SysRq works sometimes. It has not yet frozen while I have been present.

I tried disabling the screen saver and monitor power controls in KDE, thinking that those only come on when I am away, so they might be the cause. But it did not help.

I took the last time recorded by my ssh connection and looked through the logs trying to find something that happened at that time, but the only event occuring around the time the SSH connection dropped was a chron job that runs every hour. As far as I can tell, the chron job does not actually do anything but write to the log each hour.

So obviously I need to post more information. What would be helpful? Which log or configuration files might contain clues?

I see these lines in my logs:
kernel: Kernel logging (proc) stopped.
imklog 3.18.6, log source = /proc/kmsg started.

It appears at 6:25 AM each day between when the SSH connection drops and when I arrive in the morning. Do I need to restart logging?

Red Hat / Fedora :: Extract Files From A .dd File?

I have a file : cpq_cciss-2.6.20-34.rhel4.i686.dd which is designed to build a floppy disk; these floppy is used to hold disk driver which is not on RedHat CD-Rom.

Programming :: Extract The Text From Files?

Aug 28, 2010

I have many files in a folder from which I need to extract some contents, these are basically text files wich have individual lines with (i.e)

name: john
address: whatever
phone: 123456

Some caveats

1. Sometimes a line might be missing.

name: johnn
phone: 123456

2. Lines are not in the same line-numbers across the files I did try some things with awk based on google searches but I couldn't extract the data of each file into a single line (this is the ultimate goal):


I don't have knowledge other than having put some bash scripts together for backup jobs, so I am open to install anything that could to pull this off.

General :: Folder Gone Missing On HD With All Files In It

May 3, 2010

I have an external 2.5" eSATA drive which up till now was using via USB2.0 connection and was working perfectly. The drive is pretty new - I think less then a year and it's a Seagate too of which I think to be more reliable although still consumer based.I had connected the drive to FreeBSD 8.0 32bit on my server in ReadOnly mode using ext2fs in order to stream the information across my network.

Plugging the drive into Linux recently yielded everything performing fine, as the drive stores all the seasons of a TV show I started recognizing that things where outa whack when the linearity of the episodes stopped being sequential and previous episodes started playing when clicking an incremented episode.

The drive is formatted with the ext3 filesystem and I have already attempted to run e2fsck -p on it which showed up as the drive being 'clean'.I then attempted to use my notebooks eSATA Express card to connect the drive via the eSATA cable as I have found it to be more reliable then the USB2 / ext3 solution which I've had my fair share of problems with. However, the drives TOC or Journal maybe damaged by whatever reason so I will need to repair that.I stumbled across Magic Rescue and so far have compiled it but not used it as I wanted to be sure first if there was another way to do this.

Ubuntu :: Cyrillic Fonts Support - Can't Extract Files

Jul 1, 2011

my problem is that I can't extract some files because of a problem with cyrillic fonts (at least, this is what I suspect). The point is that I download some kind of files, which are fully functional to extract and open in windows but in Ubuntu trying the same thing, ends with an error. Files are downloaded from a russian web, so I think the fonts are cyrillic, which is the root of the problem. In windows they are shown as some kind of rare ASCII string but it's OK to open them.

The problem when trying in Ubuntu is that the file is shown as a large string with question marks '?' replacing all non-latin characters and it may cause problem, as it is the wildcard shell character in Linux. Renaming the file seems as an impossible task too. I have to process many of these files. Does Anyone know how can I avoid windows to do this? I tried to install many packages for cyrillic/russian support through synaptic nut it didn't seem to work.
