General :: Create A User List In Alphabetical Order?
Oct 22, 2010
I have a server with what appears to have 352 home directories (350 actually if you omit '.' & '..') & I am being asked to basically tally a list of whom all 350 users are in alphabetical order. Now I could sit here for days doing the 'finger' command to obtain their full name commented in '/etc/passwd' file but I would assume there is a script or way I could have Linux quirry the '/etc/passwd' file & take all the user 'comment' entries and export them to a list in alphabetical order. Does anyone know if this could happen and if so, how would I do something like this? I can't write bash / shell scripts to save my life
cmennens@mail]:/$ ls -l
drwxr-xr-x 352 root root 12288 Oct 21 13:41 home
I need to copy my music to a portable HDD in alphabetical order. My headunit in my car will only display the folders and files in the order that they were written to the disk so to have any form of logic to the album / track listings they need to be written to the disk in alphabetical order.
how to do this in openSUSE? I know dolphin doesn't do this.
In Linux, the files were processing based on timestamp. How to process the files based on alphabets? My application is in windows. Here I am processed the files based on alphabetical order. While coming to linux its coming wrong.
I'm trying to get Chinese filenames to be listed in alphabetical order according to pinyin. Long ago I remember having to install a particular package for that to happen, but in the past year or so I believe that ubuntu at least was doing that automatically. On my most recent linux installation, however, I find that it's not sorting file names by pinyin order. I'm wondering if I have forgotten to install something this time.
I am trying to write a bash script that will extract a .cbr (.rar) file, traverse the extracted files in alphabetical order and rename them 001.JPG, 002.JPG, 003.JPG, etc.So far I only have this much to extract it:
How would I list 4 users ID numbered 10, 11, 12 and 13 from my users list and output them to a file busers where their names are numbered by ascending order? How would I accomplish that on a one line command?
I want to add 50 new users, not on the server yet I want to add them all to group Accounting - with 1 option, not user by user I want to setup a default password for them all, and have it say something like 'You must now change password or no access will be permitted' Any other options I also want to do once, not for each user?
I am trying to write a script to pick the directory name from a list of file. Here is a detailed picture.Have a file name LIST which contains the follwing for example/apps/oracle/product/test1/apps/oracle/product/test2/apps/oracle/product/test3I need a script that reads these line from LIST and creates foldersin /apps/oracle/product/test1/backup/date/test1 after reading the first line /backup/date/test2 after readin the second line/backup/date/test3 and so on.
I tried looking this up. It seems that in Ubuntu, you need to edit /boot/grub/menu.lst. I tried that, and the file is not present in Debian "Squeeze". (Just trying it out on a different PC, In case you are confused by my other thread regarding Lenny) So what do I need to do to change the default OS to boot?
I have 4 hard drives in my computer. 1 for may root and home partitions. 2 extras for storage and 1 for Windows. I have the hard drive with my root and home partitions set as the first hard drive in the bios. However, in the Ubuntu setup it isn't the first one in the list. I would have thought that the first drive would be get set to sda. That is not the case.
I regularly use 'df -h' to check usage on each of my primary directories and mount points.
I'm currently somewhat confused by disk usage within my filesystem, so I'd like to do the following:
Display directory size of all, or say, the 10 largest, subdirectories to a specified directory. So, if I passed the root (/) directory, output would list the subdirectory of / with the largest disk usage first and its associated disk usage listed in human readable format (either M or G suffix as appropriate), followed by the subdirectory and usage for the second largest directory and so on.
Can anyone suggest a command or series of commands to do this?
How do you change the order of the list? I have Xubuntu 9.10 installed on a 5 gig partition. I only use it for Skype as the mic does not work in 10.04 at the moment for me.Anyway, I would like 10.04 to default to the top of the list. How do I change the order when grub loads.
I have installed a lot of CLI applications and it would be usefull if I had another one of these that lists and organizes ;in different ways ,what has been installed without a GUI. I tried this (rpm -qa | less) and it was lack luster and enormous. Is there a GUI or a CLI application that will list User installed CLI application and allows ways to list them , alphabetically or otherwise etc?
I know this will sound stupid, but we've been tasked with standing up a professional Linux server to run a vendor tool and product on. And my team has never administered a Linux or Unix box before. I know the concepts, but can't find the tools!
How do I create a user-ID? And is there a GUI tool I can fire up from the command line to make some of this easier? We can get to the box, manipulate files, etc. But to this point we're exclusively usint 'root', and I know I need to stop that, and prevent that happening in the future.
I've got a remote server running CentOS and I require a new user account who would have access to sftp & ssh functions.I've got a bit of a problem creating the user since whenever I try to login with the new account through ssh (putty) I keep getting access denied.I've made different accounts with userids above /below 500; even though I'm a complete noob so no idea how I'm supposed to go about this.
Long story short, someone repaired my brother's computer and set a password on his account, now we can't get in and can't contact the person who set the password. Is it possible to create a Windows XP user if I have access to the windows partition, from a linux partition or pendrive, for example TinyCore?
