Create the following directories: parent/child Navigate to child and create a file named child (this is an executable file in my case, not sure if that makes a difference). I need to create two "link to executable" links in the parent.
I had assumed that this would work: ln -sf ./child ../child1 ln -sf ./child ../child2
But that creates a "link to folder" (./child) in the parent directory. If I change it to: ln -sf -t.. ./child child1 ln -sf -t.. ./child child2 I get an error, "ln: '../child': cannot overwrite directory".
If I do it from the parent directory (which I cannot do, this is part of a Makefile recipe): ln -sf ./child/child ./child1 ln -sf ./child/child ./child2
It works. Note that I cannot alter the names of any directories or files. How do I create the links when the current directory is the child?
Code: $ echo 2 * 3 > 5 is a valid inequality. This will create a file in the current directory named '5' with the number '2' in it, the names of all the files in the current directory, followed by the number '3' and 'is a valid inequality.'
What I do not understand is why 'is a valid inequality' gets written to this file. I thought it would write '2', all the file names in the current directory, then '3' into the file called '5'. Why does the 'is a valid inequality.' get written to the file also?
Well, I am facing problem when doing lab questions.
I must use DLXLinux bundled in Bochs (bochs.sourceforge.net).
I am required to use the /usr/local directory.
In /usr directory, there is no directory named 'local' but there is one thing called 'local@'. So, when I try to use mkdir command to create 'local' directory in /usr , there are error "cannot make directory.....".
I have a FAT32 SD card with a file on it, that, viewed in Windows the filename consists of a long string of nonsense. Viewed in my Android phone's Linux terminal, ls -a shows nothing in the directory. When I try to delete the parent directory with rm -rf deleteme, it fails with "Directory not empty". When I try to delete/move in Windows 7, it says the filename would be too long and/or Explorer crashes. Windows disk check doesn't find anything wrong. How can I delete this?
I have a directory called data. Then I am running a script under the user id 'robot'. robot writes to the data directory and update files inside. The idea is data is open for both me and robot to update.
So I setup the permission and owner group like this
drwxrwxr-x 2 me robot-grp 4096 Jun 11 20:50 data
where both me and robot belongs to the 'robot-grp'. I change the permission and the owner group recursively like the parent directory.
I regularly upload new files into the data directory using rsync. Unfortunately, new files uploaded does not inherit the parent directory's permission as I hope. Instead it looks like this
-rw-r--r-- 1 me users 6 Jun 11 20:50 new-file.txt
When robot tries to update new-file.txt, it fails due to lack of file permission.
I'm not sure if setting umask helps. In anycase the new files does not really follow it.
$ umask -S u=rwx,g=rx,o=rx
I'm often confounded by Unix file permission. Do I even have a right plan? I'm using Debian lenny.
and my current working directory is sub1link, is there a quick way to either: change directory to link source parent (i.e something similar to cd .. but take the user to /dir1/ change directory to link source (i.e switch from /dir2/sub1link/ straight to /dir1/sub1
Code: mkdir: cannot create directory `/dev/cgroup/cpu/user/5900': No such file or directory bash: /dev/cgroup/cpu/user/5900/tasks: No such file or directory bash: /dev/cgroup/cpu/user/5900/notify_on_release: No such file or directory It seems like it's probably from this part of .bashrc:
What does this code do, why, and what's causing it to go wrong?
I am trying to move all the txt files with a script from multiple directories to one directory, adding the parent directories of the files to the file names.It's a little complicated to explain, but i hope the script i have so far explains what im trying to do better:
I'm reading up on some DNS and this section mentioned a /etc/named.d directory. I can't seem to find it - i have bind installed and i've searched on this directory, and the only realistic mention of it is from a post in a blog from 2001. I'm working in a FC12 environment...
I am runnung ubuntu 9.10 desktop edition as a server. I am using a FTP client program to upload some files(index.html, background.png, etc) and everything is fine with that. And currently all my files are in /home/myname/ folder. What I want is whenever I log in with my ubuntu account in the FTP client program, I can actually see the list or contents of the very root directory.
In other word, I can see every folder like /bin, /boot, /etc, /root, so on in the FTP software and I can download it. I don't want to allow to access the parent(or root) directory. Is there any possible way to set up the sutff?
I am facing a problem in Windows due to a virus called Newfolder.exe which creats files with the same name as it's parent directory and an extension .exe and this happens for every directory in the entire hierarchy in the infected pen drive. The antivirus detects them, but is sucking slow. So I thought this is a good opportunity to use the concepts of the all mighty shell script to remove those as they follow the same pattern. Say my complete path is
The virus would have created an file with complete paths
If fol1 has two more directories fol11 and fol12 Then there would be two more .exe(virus created) in the following path
I've mucked through and figured out how to mount a windows share. I can access the folders I was looking for, but the windows share was not what I thought it would be. I was looking for the specific shared folder. Instead I got a root level parent directory that included the folder I wanted, and a couple others.
smbclient -L <ipaddress> gives me a parent directory on the root
First question: Can I mount a specific folder within a share? Second question: Could somebody define share? I thought it was the specific shared folder, but that doesn't seem to be the case.
In Elastix, I get to amportal.conf via the /etc/ director. The file tells you:
It appears that AMPADMINLOGO=logo.png is calling out to something that is not there. I can't even find AMP directory. See below. Do I need to create a directory? This is the result of an ls -F at my /etc/ dir:
