General :: Consistent Sync Between Two Remote Directories

Aug 17, 2010

I wanted to create a consistent sync between two directories on two separate hosts. So when I write a file on one host, the file is automatically written on the next host. I don't have shared storage between each host.

the source is on Linux, and the other is on windows.

So, I mount the directory on windows using the command mount -t cifs . in Linux system.

Everything is OK, but rsync prints out

Ubuntu :: Sync Directories Between Desk And Laptop Both Within And Outside Of Home Network

May 26, 2011

I want to sync several directories between my laptop and desktop both at home and away from home. It seems like the tool to use for this is unison (I use rysnc for backups, but union seemed, better for this sort of thing - let me know if I'm wrong).

I found several posts that appear promising, however I was little confused about the details as I don't have much networking experience up to this point.


1) Is a reverse ssh connection the way to go? If I only wanted to do this on my home network I could just use ssh right, however in order to get around the router outside my home network the reverse ssh is necessary?

2) How do I handle changing IP address of my laptop?

Ubuntu Servers :: Sync Directory To Remote Nfs Share?

Jul 21, 2011

I have a folder on my workstation and I currently have an identical copy on my nas mounted via ifs (I'll be using this as my backup). The folder contains many virtual machines that are usually powered off. I like to think of the copy on my nas as a backup. The benefit of having two copies of my vms is that if I boot up too many on my workstation and the drive starts to cause a bottle neck I can simply boot the vms from the nas instead. (gigabit ethernet)

I would like changes I make to my local copy to be reflected on the nas.

I want this to happen In the background, I.e. If I turn off my machine it shouldnt cause a problem, the next time I boot up it just re checks the files and continues syncing the 2 directories.

What is the best tool for the job? Rsync?

I've never really used it before so a few pointers to get me going would be great, or obviously other recommendations if there are any.

My linux system is running from the ram (ramfs/tmpfs). Crated a partition type 'tmpfs'. Processes are reading/ writing from/to this partition files. I am looking for utilities to sync this partition to the remote storage regularly (say, once in 10 sec).

Ubuntu Servers :: Centralized Login And Remote Home Directories?

Feb 7, 2010

In my desire to learn, mess around and set up something useful on my home network, I'm looking for something that can do centralized login and remote home directories. When someone in my family logs in to a computer, windows or linux based, I want them to be able to use their credentials, then have their remote drive mounted and ready for use. I've looked over ldap solutions, attempted to set up an OpenLDAP server and realized I have no idea what was going on. Is an ldap implementation the proper way to go for my desired solution or am I barking up the wrong tree? I've just now set up OpenDS on a VM for testing but I need to do some research there.

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?

OpenSUSE :: Sync Pim Data With Palm Treo 680 Via Bluetooth - Jpilot Sync Suddenly Broken

Oct 24, 2010

I use jpilot on opensuse 11.3 64bit to sync pim data with my Palm Treo 680 via bluetooth. This worked fine until today. Now I get the following error message when I try to sync: Syncing on device bt: Press the HotSync button now dlp_ReadSysInfo error Exiting with status YNC_ERROR_PI_CONNECT Finished.

The last successfull sync was on the 20th October and today is the 24th October. I did not change any settings in jpilot or on my palm device. So I guess there must have been an update of opensuse which causes this error. But I do not now how to look up the updates during this period or how to undo them. Was there an update between the 20th and the 24th Oktober, which might affect either jpilot or bluetooth functionality?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: How To Sync Audio On Already Badly Out Of Sync Video?

Jul 9, 2011

Audio sync method. "Stretches/squeezes" the audio stream to match the timestamps, the parameter is the maximum samples per second by which the audio is changed. -async 1 is a special case where only the start of the audio stream is corrected without any later correction.Searching the net makes one believe that this command is just some sort of magic.People just put it in the line and it just works. Isn't that nice?

It says nothing about how to change the TIME the audio starts syncing. Like do I want it to start 5 seconds delayed? Or what about 5 seconds sooner?What if the audio gets more out of sync as the video goes on? Can I slip it a little at a time? What? No magic?No one mentions a file that already has badly synced audio.So what -async 1 really does is simply start the audio at the beginning of the file. LIKE AS IF THAT ISN'T STANDARD PROCEDURE?So what is the exact solution to syncing a messed up video? And why can't it just do the proper "timestamp" sync in the first place?No docs, no info and you are left out in the cold.

Fedora :: Cursor Theme Isn't Consistent

Jun 28, 2011

I'm running F15 with KDE right now, and I'm using a non-default cursor theme. All KDE/Qt apps are fine, but if I use Firefox, as an example, which is a GTK app, the cursor theme returns to the default as long as it's inside the Firefox window. Back when I was using GNOME, I noticed the same thing when I had my cursor over a Qt app.

OpenSUSE :: Kmail Does Not Have A Consistent Layout

Jan 14, 2010

I have setup different identities in Kmail to deal with multiple gmail accounts so I have a different set of inbox, sent mail and draft folder for each account.In the message layout, I have chosen to display the columns - subject,sender/receiver and date. For one of my email accounts, kmail does the job perfectly. The inbox foler shows subject, sender and date, whereas the sent-mail folder shows subject, receiver and date. However, this order is not maintained for my other email accounts. The inbox folders show subject, sender and date(which is correct); the sent-mail folder shows subject, sender and date - instead of subject, receiver and date which is what should be displayed.

Whilst this may sound trivia, its some what annoying. I've just upgraded to Natty Narwhal, from Meerkat.On Meerkat i had customised the feel of my desktop to my liking, however whilst it may have kept some of the customisation in Natty, i think there maybe a bug.I boot up and some days my Awn Dock looks different.Sometimes the icons on the dock lookcompletely different to the ones i have selected. Also my desktop icons change. My mouse pointer that i have changed sometimes works and sometimes resorts back to the original mouse pointer.

Software :: Dir And Dates Listings Are Not Consistent?

Jan 26, 2011

It only occured to me now, but why is it that date listings are not consistent?



They are all Month Day Year but one (from that particular extract, there's more), why is the 3rd there one Month Day Time? I know the year is not 2011 because we have not hit august 2011 yet, but what if it's 2009 or 2008? I would not know.

One of my sites got hacked and I'm just trying to figure out what the hacker got into and trying to figure how he got in so I can fix the exploit.

Fedora Installation :: Sha1sum On Cd Iso Is Wrong - But Consistent

Jan 22, 2010

I downloaded the disc1 iso from [url] and ran it through sha1sum and got 5063ec... (the exact digest is in the virtual console, so I can't copy and paste). But the sum shown in [url] is different, so I removed the iso from my file-system and re-downloaded it. I ran the second download through sha1sum and got the same (wrong) digest as before: 5063ec...

Now, I may not understand fully how sha1 works, but I'm pretty sure if the faulty digest was wrong because of a download error, it would be -very- unlikely that I would get the same wrong digest twice. What is going on here? Is the error server-side or something? Or do I just have terrible luck, or do I not fully understand sha1 sums? Or maybe sha1sum isn't the right command to run?

Software :: Dchroot Environment Variables Not Consistent?

Feb 20, 2011

I've created a 32-bit chroot on my AMD64 installation. It works pretty well when I just type 'dchroot' but if I try to execute a 32-bit program from 64-bit land using 'dchroot <command>', the environment variables are all screwed up. I know I can use -d or --preserve-environment to keep my 64-bit environment but I don't want to do that because I want my PATH to change when I go into 32-bit land. Here's an example of what I am talking about:

me@box:~$ dchroot "echo $PATH"
I: [x86 chroot] Running command: ?echo $PATH?

Fedora Servers :: Passwords Aren't Consistent With Root

Aug 2, 2010

We use a Linux server with AFS on it. I changed the linux root password using passwd. The new password will let me log in as root but when I try to change the AFS admin password it asks for the root password. When I put in the password that it let me log in as root. It tells me authentication failed. And when I run the password command with -admin admin, it asks for the admin password. I put in the admin password that worked before I changed the root and it says authorization failed.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Months To Get Consistent Audio To Work?

Mar 22, 2011

I have an intel HDA chipset that desperately wants to work. I have it plugged into my receiver and sound only occassionally works. I say occassionally because I will hear some sound, then my receiver will flash hdmi, as if it is switching to the new stream, I hear silence. Then shortly later, the receiver will provide sound, then again it will 'switch' and i hear silence. To work around this, I had an optical line working and somehow had alsa using ONLY that for the audio (bypassing the HDMI completely). Then one day when I was trying to the audio fixed for some specific application, I broke it! I cannot figure for the life of me how to make alsa ONLY use my optical line. Of course any suggestions on how to get the hdmi to work is even better.

Debian Multimedia :: Adobe Flash 10 Consistent Way To Make It Work?

Dec 5, 2010

I have the latest version of Debian Lenny AMD64 installed on my brother's computer. I am trying to get Adobe versions of flash to install on his computer. It seems no matter what I do I get the freeware version installed which unfortunately is not up to the task. If I try to remove the freeware version the package manager tells me it needs to remove the gnome as well. How can I keep the gnome and at the same time get Adobe version to install. Yes I have a multimedia repository installed and I tried reinstalling Mozilla Adobe package with no success.

Searching forums did not result in any helpful ideas.Things I have already found out from reading this forum.-I have to purge all freeware version of the Adobe flash plug-in. I can't seem to find a way to do this without removing the gnome desktop. It seems that the plug-in is a dependency for the gnome desktop environment. Yes I want to continue to use the gnome desktop environment. I have to install flashplayer-mozilla package from the Debian multimedia nonfree repository. That I can successfully do, and have done so without success. It installs successfully, but it still shows version 9 of the plug-in. I believe version 9 is the free version. What I would like to use the free version, it's just not compatible with the websites I go to.
