General :: Case Insensibility In Filenames And Rsync, Mount?

Nov 27, 2010

Is there a way of making rsync (an offspring of rcp) case insensitive? Perhaps mounting the file system (not linux) in some special way?

General :: How To Use Rsync When Filenames Contain Double Quotes

Jan 29, 2011

I am trying to synchronize the content of the directory my_dir/ from /home to /backup. This directory contains a file which name has a double quote in it, such as to"to. Here is my rsync command:
rsync -Cazh /home/my_dir/ /backup/my_dir/

And I get the following message:
rsync: mkstemp "/backup/my_dir/.to"to.d93PZr" failed: Invalid argument (22)
For info, rsync works well when the synchronized filenames contain single quote, parenthesis and space. Thus, why is it bugging with a double quote?

General :: Windows - Make Rsync Case Insensitive

Mar 12, 2011

I'm rsync'ing a bunch of files between a Windows and a Linux system. Since not all Windows care about case, some of the files on the Windows system no longer have the same casing as they had on the Linux system. But rsync now treats these files as different and uploads a new copy.

Is it possible to have rsync ignore the case?

Software :: Restore Lower Case Filenames In A Source Code Package?

Jan 1, 2010

I downloaded a source code package for an old multi-platform game. unfortunately, the author, when he created the .zip archive of the source code, zipped it in DOS, and so all of the file names are in all caps. when i run the configure script, it errors out, not being able to find any of the files (which originally were in lower case.

so, other than the extremely tedious process of renaming each file, one by one, is there any way to fix this so it will build properly? this game was written in 1996, so i don't think i'm the first person to bump into this problem.

General :: Moving Install To New Hard Drive (Fc12) Mount - Grub.conf, And Rsync?

May 31, 2010

As my proficiency with Linux improves slowly, I've been trying to find the answers for myself, but in this situation I must admit I find myself rather stumped. I have a perfectly nicely working Fedora 12 install on an 80GB SATA drive, and when it hit an error and wouldn't boot last week (easily fixed with fsck from the initial command line) I panicked and ordered a new 250 GB drive. It got here and I might as well use it, I thought to myself, so I went about trying to figure out how to move my install without having to reset all of my settings, programs and so on. I didn't want to mess with dd because I'm not so so clear on resizing my partitions once the copy is done (if someone thinks this is a better idea I'm open to suggestions.) After some poking around I found this set of instructions which I attempted to follow to the letter, but hit some snags. I understand this thread I am referring to may be a bit outdated, which is why (I assume) I hit a bump here

# mount /dev/hdy1 /boot
mount returns an error demanding I specify the file system type. At a loss, I barreled on until


To summarize, I partitioned and mounted my new drive using fdfisk and the instructions provided above, then used rsync to copy over all of the files, so as far as I know the new drive is ready to go, just not yet bootable. Opening the Grub.conf file in Kwrite (as root) returns a blank page. What do I do now?

As a side note, you can see that I am not too squeamish about the terminal, so I would prefer to find a "command line only" solution to this relatively simple (?) procedure.

Slackware :: Mkisofs -iso-level 1 Converts To Lower Case Instead Of Upper Case?

Oct 28, 2010

Kernel 2.6, Slackware 12.0
mkisofs 2.01

I do 'mkisofs -iso-level 1 -o image John Smith.txt'. Only an example. When I mount image, ls outputs john_smi.txt. So it has shorten to 8.3 and translated ' ' into '_'. This is in accordance with the manual, although it doesn't say the conversion will be done.


-iso-level level
With all iso9660 levels from 1..3, all filenames are restricted to upper case letters, numbers and the underscore (_).

However, as it did not reject the file name, it should have converted it to all upper case, it seems to me. And -iso-level 2|3 does the same thing.


root@darkstar:~# mkisofs -iso-level 1 -o image John Smith.txt
Total translation table size: 0
Total rockridge attributes bytes: 0

Ubuntu Networking :: Mount Windows PC To Backup Using Rsync

Jul 1, 2011

I want to backup windows PC's in my network to my ubuntu 11.04 pc, using rsync. Rsync is working, but I have to mount the pc's. A few details.
My server is named: server
The windows pc is named: \PC_OF_MARTIJN
The folder where the mount is coming is: /home/bastiaan/backup/mounts
Credentials are in /home/bastiaan/backup/credentials and they're called: martijn

So what I'm going to add to /etc/fstab is this:
//server \PC_OF_USER /home/bastiaan/backup/mounts/user cifs credentials=/home/bastiaan/credentials/user,iocharset=utf8,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777 0 0
Will this work?

General :: Listing Filenames Without The Directories?

Oct 3, 2010

list filenames one-per-line, in BASH without including directories. I think he was either wrong or making that up. There is a way to list just the names and one per line but there aren't any arguments I can find that can be used to exclude directories.


IFS=', '; files=`ls -m`; for i in $files; do if [ -f $i ]; then echo $i; fi; done That does only use ls as a command, however he said his GSI thought he could do it without all that...

General :: Regex - Using Find To Locate Filenames Before A Certain Date?

Jul 11, 2011

I have a ton of files that are timestamped directories. These all look like2011-06-24_13.53.36 // a directory name for june 24th, 1:53:36 pmI have thousands of these directories. I want to do operations on some of the older ones. Let's say I give it a string for date time that matches that exact format, like i'll give it2011-06-25_00.00.00 // june 25th, 12amI want to find all the directories BEFORE my time. So if i give the string for 12am on june 25th, i want to find all the directories before then.If not i can find EVERY directory i have like this and then filter after wards. The created/modified dates are not tied to the actual timestamp im looking for (that would make this easier)

General :: Double Quotation Marks Allowed In Filenames?

May 19, 2010

I tried to move a file from my desktop to another folder; moving it was not allowed, for some reason. Neither was opening it and saving a new copy in the target folder. Would that be because the filename contains double (") quotation marks? Are they not allowed? The filename is Edit of Bob's "Lady Liberty" Article.doc. [Filename not enclosed in quotation marks here, to avoid confusion.]I just changed the double quotation marks to single quotation marks; that solved everything.

General :: Bash Scripting - Removing Strings From MP3 Filenames

Oct 5, 2010

I've been surfing and searching the net quit a while now to make my own script, but I haven't been really successful ever since I want to make a script which can remove strings from my mp3 collection (file names).

For example:
101-bob_sinclar_feat_sean_paul-tik_tok_(radio_edit).mp3 --> bob_sinclar_feat_sean_paul-tik_tok_(radio_edit).mp3
10-Young Jeezy-Lose My Mind (78 Bpm) (Repack).mp3 --> young_jeezy-lose_my_mind.mp3

Now the problem is how can I remove the strings like:
101 & 10 (dynamic)
(%%% Bpm) (dynamic)
(Repack) (static)

General :: Delete Files With Complex Filenames With A Script?

I am trying to write a bash script to delete a file where I know the first part of the name, but it has spaces in it. The second part of the file name is a random set of characters. I was hoping to use a wildcard for this, but I keep getting a error massage saying file or directory does not exist. This is a simplified form of my script:

MYFILE=This is my file

The file may be something like "This is my file.123abc456.suffix"

General :: Convert Windows Filenames To *nix Notation - Use It On Shell With Md5sum?

Aug 25, 2011

I have some checksums.md5 verification files from an ntfs external drive, but using windows notation: instead of /, spaces between file names (not escaped), reserved shell characters (like (, &, ', to name a few). The checksums.md5 has a bunch of checksums and filenames:


I want to use this checksums.md5 to verify the files that I've copied to my machine: but I'm on a Linux, so I need to convert the names inside checksums.md5 from Windows to Linux to use the md5sum utility from the shell.

General :: Lower-casing Filenames On Fat32 External Drive

Jan 6, 2010

I have an external harddrive which is fat32 (which was filled when I was on a windows system) with a lot of files on (> 200gb) which have mixed case filenames. I wanted to write a script to rename them all to lowercase however when I did I got an error saying that the filenames are the same (which I guess is true as FAT is case-insensitive). My issue is that I'm mounting this from a linux box now so it would make it a lot easier if things were lower case! I've already run a script to replace all spaces with underscores.

I know I could do this by first going through and renaming everything with a prefix and then renaming it back again (ie, rename File.Jpg to xFile.Jpg and then a second rename to strip that x off and rename lowercase to file.jpg) however I find this approach a bit messy and would prefer to do it all in one pass. Other than that, could I change the drive to ext4 without losing any files on it? The drive has a hell of a lot of stuff on there which is an archive of many years of files - I'd be absolutely gutted if I lost everything.
