Debian :: Copy Partition And / Or Convert Inode Size

Mar 1, 2016

I think I basically need to know whether it's possible to copy a partition whilst converting inode size, or if I need to create a new partition and copy the contents.

To give you the back story..

I have a system with 1 SSD and a raid array of 4 physical disks. One of the raid disks died, so I swapped it out, only to find the system wouldn't boot (had no bootloader?). I fired up a live session, and tried grub-install, but get an error like "The file /boot/grub/stage1 not read correctly". Looking into it, it looks like the problem discussed here which is basically something to do with the partition having an inode size of 256 instead of 128.

Taking a step back for a moment.. I can't really remember installing this system, but is it possible I partitioned the SSD to ext4, with a default inode size of 256, then when the installer tried to install grub, it basically refused to install it on the SSD, so offered to install it on one of the raid disks, which happens to be the disk that died? So until now, unbeknown to me, the bootloader has been on one of my raid disks, while the root (bootable?) partition is on the SSD. That's my best guess as to what's gone wrong anyway..

Anyhow, currently this system has the SSD with the small bootable partition with an inode size of 256. As luck would have it, the new raid disk is sitting there not doing anything yet, so I have the space needed to copy that partition or it's contents onto the new raid disk.

So the question is, can I convert the inode size whilst copying the partition? Or do I need to just clone the partition, then create a new one with the correct inode size, then copy the contents of the old partition to the new one? In the latter case, is there any hidden secret sauce that won't be copied with `cp -R` or so? I mean, if I just create a partition with the correct inode size, and flag it bootable, then `cp -R` from the old partition to this new one, will it be functionally the same? or is there something special I need to do because this is the root OS partition?

General :: Explanation Of Command To Uppercase First Letter Of Filename

Jun 10, 2010

I'm trying to learn to rename files with the command line, and after browsing around a lot of pages I finally found a command that uppercases the first letter of a file, but the problem is that I want to understand the meaning of each command. The command is:
for i in *; do new=`echo "$i" | sed -e 's/^./U&/'`; mv "$i" "$new";done
I understand the 'for' kinda... but not the 'echo' or '`' and especially the sed command.

General :: Mapping Sftp/scp As A Drive Letter Without User Logins?

Aug 24, 2011

I'm trying to find a software which could map sftp/scp services to a windows drive letter. I know there are quite a bunch of those available, but i haven't found a single one which could run with SYSTEM or Netservice privileges or have decent command line options so i could elevate the program myself. The mapped drive should be available for other services running on the same server.

Most of the programs (sftp netdrive, expandrive, etc) have only option to startautomatically only when someone logs in. Because of that they are useless to me.Their inability to handle non-interactive starts is a bummer too. FTP->SFTP wrappers don't count as solution despite of integrated windows support for ftp drives. The way they are handled in windows makes ftp mapping unusable without some external ftp drive mapper software.

General :: Make System Partition Letter / Number Designations Persistent?

Aug 15, 2010

Everyone who deals with Linux knows that partitions on hard drives are designated as "sdx#", i.e., sda1 sdb2, etc. I know through experimentation that the number portion of the designation is assigned not according to order on the disk, but chronologically in the order they are created.

Further, if you have several partitions on the disk-say, sda1 through sda3-and you delete sda2, the designation of sda1 will remain the same, but sda3 will become the new sda2. The creation of any further partitions on the drive will start with designation sda3 and increment from that point.

At times this creates a conundrum, especially concerning bootable partitions. Some time back I rendered a partition containing OpenSUSE unbootable because of this, even though Ubuntu owned the GRUB bootloader in the MBR. Ubuntu's GRUB could find and point to the partition using the command "sudo update-grub", but when OpenSUSE took over the boot-up process, its GRUB was pointed to the wrong partition and would freeze up.

My question is this:

Under Windows, one is able to make a Drive letter persistent. Windows will keep the drive letter for that partition and assign around it. Is there a way to change a drive designation number, or at least make it persistent, under Linux? It would be a handy method to forestall these types of booting problems, among other things.

Presently, when a person has installed Linux side-by-side with Windows and want to delete the Windows partition and expand the Linux partition into the free space, I will tell them to format the partition, then shrink it to next to nothing instead of deleting it. This preserves the partition ID scheme while giving them the space to expand their Linux partition into...especially helpful with a seasoned Linux installation that would be a PITA to reinstall and set back up.

Oh, and I already know about UUID. This article explains it, but if you look down through the comments, you will see reasons that it is problematic for desktop application and usage. I want to make it as simple as possible for new Linux users (and myself! ).

General :: Open Office Document Conversion Uses 100% CPU

Sep 5, 2011

When I try to convert a word document using the ooextract python script from open office like

/usr/local/bin/ myDocument.doc myDocument.pdf

the open office deamon (sOffice.bin) takes 100% CPU load forever.

We are using Open Office 2.6.3 on a virtual machine running debian squeeze 2.6.32-5-amd64


We found out that this appears only with our test document, other documents can be converted without problem. But how can we find out what's wrong with our document. How can we enable traces/loggin o the sOffice.bin process?

They are all given different filenames bob_smells.xls, nancy_smells_worse.xls etc. I was wondering using Linux (LUbuntu specifically), would it be possible to combine all of these worksheets into one document, with each of the seperate files becoming a tab / sheet within the one file (And the name reflecting the original name of the document)?
