General :: Find Files In Date Range?

May 31, 2010

ls -l /tmp/empty_file*
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 0 2010-05-30 08:00 /tmp/empty_file
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 0 2010-05-30 12:00 /tmp/empty_file1

This looks good, the files expected to be seen are output: find /usr ( -newer /tmp/empty_file -a ! -newer /tmp/empty_file1 ) -print

But this shows me files that should not be output and likewise when I replace ls with tar it is tarring a whole bunch of stuff I do not want: find /usr ( -newer /tmp/empty_file -a ! -newer /tmp/empty_file1 ) -exec ls -l {} ;

In the end I would like to replace the "ls" with "tar cvvfp some.tar {} ;", but can't figure out what is going wrong here.

General :: Find And Sort Results By Date Modified

Jun 7, 2011

so I was wondering how I could do a simple find which would order the results by most recently modified. Here is the current fine I am using. (I am doing a shell escape in php, so that is the reasoning for the variables. find '$dir' -name '$str'* -print | head -10

How could I have this order the search by most recently modified. (Note I do not want it to sort 'after' the search, but rather find the results based on what was most recently modified)

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 :: Finding Files Based On Date Without Using `find`?

Aug 11, 2011

I know find can do what I am looking for, but I am wondering if there is an alternative way to find files on the filesystem either created before/after a certain point, or at a certain time.

Typically I rely on updatedb & locate for most of my file searching needs. Issues with those tools, though, are that it only has directory and file names, and it only creates a database of local directories, not anything mounted via CIFS|NFS or via -o loop (eg, .iso images).

So if I need to find files created after yesterday across the entire system (local and remote filesystems), I am currently needing to use find.

What other tools, if any, would accomplish this in a similar fashion?

I have tried ls and grep, but that requires (in my attempts so far) multiple searches:

ls -lR | grep Aug | grep 10
ls -lR | grep Aug | grep 11

General :: Use Date With Touch To Create New File With Date Based Name?

Mar 12, 2010

I am using CRON to create a new, blank file, every minute, in a specific location on my web server. After web searching, and reading man pages, I get the impression that the following command is supposed to work:touch /home/mydomain/var/folder/attachments/`date +%H%M`.txtThis should give me a new file with a file name that is the current hour and minute.However, when executed, the CRON mailer reports:touch /home/mydomain/var/folder/attachments/`date +/bin/sh: -c: line 0: unexpected EOF while looking for matching /bin/sh: -c: line 1: syntax error: unexpected end of fileSo, it looks like shell is seeing the plus (+) sign as an EOFObviously, nothing get created.What would be the easiest, single line command to create an empty file, at a given location, with a time based file name

Jul 31, 2010

When I clall the "update manager" it tells me if my system is up-to-date or new updates are available. Lets assume I update my system now (I disabled automatic updates).

Is there soemwhere an entry which shows this date?

General :: Possible To Perform An Up-to-date Installation Of CentOS 5?

Feb 15, 2010

Can one perform an installation of CentOS 5 (5.4) so that the system is up-to-date at the time of the first boot (i.e. Anaconda will pull and install the 'latest' versions of the packages directly, and the user needn't run `yum update` | `yum upgrade` after the system has been installed)?

If this is doable at all, is it possible to accomplish without making use of a personally custom-crafted-and-hosted repository (i.e. can one of the official CentOS mirrors be used)?

Also, I'm not talking about creating an install DVD containing the latest versions of the packages, but rather, if the netinstall media can be used to perform this particular type of installation.

Red Hat :: Find Up To Date Documentation For Kickstart Configuration Under RHEL6?

Jan 4, 2011

I'm migrating a custom RHEL5.5 install DVD to RHEL6 and am having some trouble with the Kickstart script. All things work great with 5.5 but if just copying it over to use with version 6 some things don't work. For example creating a user, doesn't create his home directory, neither automatically nor when using --homedir option. Another example when creating logical volumes I used to use the --percent option with RHEL5.5 which worked perfectly but for some reason crashes under 6. When I set the size to fixed then it works. Does anyone have any idea where I can find up to date documentation for kickstart configuration under RHEL6?

Ubuntu :: Organize Folder With Images By Date Taken Rather Than Date Edited?

Aug 1, 2011

As a photographer I'm constantly taking photos and storing them in folders. Now occasionally I'm using two cameras (either for different settings or an assistant is also taking photos) which means that for one event I can have differently named images.Both cameras have the same time set (which always helps in Windows) but in Ubuntu when trying to sort my folder by date taken I can't.The options I'm given are to sort them: Manually, by Name, by Size, by Type, by Modification date and by Emblem.Now none of those are helpful to me once I've done a few edits to the images.So please if anyone knows, how do you organise a folder with images taken on different cameras by Date Taken rather than Date Edited?

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Upgrade From 9.04 / My System Is 'up To Date'

Feb 12, 2010

I run three Ubuntu machines - work, home, and a laptop. All were on 9.04, and I was able over the past week to painlessly upgrade the first two to 9.10.Today I fired up the laptop for the first time in a while and saw that it hadn't had the upgrade yet, so went to the upgrade manager. It had a bunch of package upgrades it wanted to do, so I let it. But there was no option to go to 9.10, not even after catching it up on updates. It just says the system is up to date. Clicking "check" again just gives the same message. It doesn't seem to know that there's a koala out there.

Settings on the update manager say to accept normal releases, so it's not an LTS thing. Yes, it's on 9.04 now according to /etc/apt/sources.list. Network connectivity is good.What might I be missing that I ought to look for?

Ubuntu Installation :: Keeping Software Packages Up To Date

Mar 31, 2010

I've had a search through the forums but can't find what I'm looking for, I'm sure it's there and apologies for asking something that has undoubtedly been answered before. I'm running numerous Ubuntu 8 LTS web servers, with mysql, rails, nginx, etc etc and I was after some advice about keeping these servers up to date with security updates. I'm on the ubuntu security announcements mailing list, but I was hoping to find a way to automate the installation of any security updates.
