General :: Sending Find Results To File - List Too Long

Aug 12, 2010

I'm trying to do a
find /photos/* -type f -mtime +365
to find all my pictures that are over a year old, but I keep getting argument list too long. How can I view what all the results are, even if it just dumps it to a file that I have to open?

General :: Using Find With File Name And Mtime To Remove Files Gets Arg List Too Long Error?

Dec 25, 2009

I need to delete all *.trc files that are older than 30 days and I am getting a "Argument list too long" error. There are other files that should not be deleted which is why I am using the "*.trc" and newer files need to be kept as well. I have seen other postings but they do not cover both of the conditions. Below are 2 of the many attempts at doing this but I cannot get this to work.

find *.trc -mtime +31 -print| xargs rm -f {}
find *.trc -mtime +31 -print -exec rm -f {} ;

General :: Sending Backup Results To External Email Addresses?

Mar 26, 2009

I come from more of a programming background but have been giving the task of sending backup results from a linux box in an email to external email addresses, I have spent days looking trough google for info but cant seem to find anything simple, I have looked at postfix but because I don't understand networks, hosts, nameservers etc. What I need to do to allow mail get sent from the linux box to external mail address. I have outlook connected to an exchange server on windows and I can ping the linux box from my windows command so surely it cant be to much involved.

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)

Ubuntu Servers :: CUPS Very Long Delay Between Sending Jobs And Printing?

Feb 17, 2011

I've set up a cups printing server using ubuntu 10.04.1 LTS. The printer's a HP Laser Jet 1018 I can connect to it over vpn using openvpn from my netbook which is also running ubuntu 10.04.1. I can connect to the printer all right and test page prints without a problem. But if I try to print anything else, it take at least 5 minutes before the job is successfully send and printed out.

Also, on the client side, for example, the file size would like 500k, and when it finally prints out, the file size on the server side is less than 10k. The file is a black and white document, and from what I can tell, the printed page is not missing any information.

General :: Reusing Find Command Results In Mplayer Arguments?

Jan 22, 2010

I wanted to supply mplayer with the output of find command as arguments. The error returned showed spliced names of files whenever spaces occurred. I have subdirectories in my /home/my_user_name/Music/ directory, and in them multiple *.oga music files. The actual command that I issued was

mplayer $(find /home/my_user_name/Music/ -name "*.oga")

mplayer started but then was looking for broken file names. I am thinking quoting has to do with it to preserve the filename as one string but different attempts were met with inroads:

mplayer `find /home/my_user_name/Music/ -name "*.oga"`
gave me the same result and
mplayer `"find /home/my_user_name/Music/ -name *.oga"`

complained about wrong mplayer syntax.

General :: LDAP: Ldapsearch Can't Return More Than 500 Results; Also, Can't Find Slapd.conf?

Feb 20, 2010

If I do something to the effect of this:ldapsearch -b "dc=example,dc=com" -x -z 3000

I'll get this back at the end of the result set:
# search result
search: 2
result: 4 Size limit exceeded

The thing is is that I have way more (thousands) than what's being displayed here. And I've tried to mess around with /etc/ldap.conf, changing the SIZELIMIT directive to something else, 10000, let's say, and restarting the server, but the same goddamn thing happens.

I've been messing around with this for quite some time now, hopefully someone will be able to shed some light on this so that I can learn my way out of this mess that is LDAP. Also in a related matter, I'm running Mint (based off of Ubuntu), and all the documentation that I've seen (probably read a good 100+ pages in a few days now on this) keeps telling me to make changes to my slapd.conf file. What slapd.conf file? It doesn't exist, I can't find it at least. find / -name slapd.conf turns up nothing.

Real time : 5min
Sys time : 1.1 sec
User time : 3 sec

I was running

Ubuntu Installation :: Get A Long List Of I/o Errors

Tried the install option, and same thing. The install did get to an apparent Ubuntu background, but never any further prompts. Is the iso bad? I'm trying to install on a Dell Inspiron 7500.

Ubuntu Networking :: Long Wifi Networks Last In The Available List?

Mar 10, 2010

I was on a car trip earlier, but we were stuck in traffic. The stop-go stop-go kind of BS. I pulled out my 9.10 laptop and figured I'd scan for wifi networks and see how good America was at securing their networks. (I work in IT support so it's one of those things I preach to no end yet people rarely listen).

I was using wifi radar, and picked up a truckload of networks every time we'd stop. But something didn't sit well with me. When I click on the network manager icon in the top gnome panel to see what networks were available, it never seemed to refresh.

Example - the first 5 networks I saw were 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. We would stop-go more and more and miles later when I'd see more networks in the area show up in wifi radar, yet hit my network manager, I'd STILL see networks 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and not 30, 31, 32, 33, etc like I expected.

What kind of refresh time or cache or whatever does network manager have? I just didn't understand why I was seeing the original networks from 15 minutes/miles ago and it never seemed to update.

Software :: Sending Thread To Zombie List?

Feb 1, 2010

these are the functions I am using for creating threads..

#include "mythread.h"
/** Global Data **/
tcbList_t *readyList = NULL; /* Ready list */
tcb_t *runningTCB; /* Currently running thread */
tcb_t mainTCB; /* Starting threads's TCB */


The function endThread() currently simply ends the entire program, not just the terminating thread. I need to modify the function endThread() so that it will place the terminating thread on the zombie list and switch to the next ready thread if the ready list is not empty. If the ready list is empty then endThread() should switch back to the main thread (the state of the main thread was saved in "mainTCB" by initiate())... and, in createThread() space is malloc'd for the thread's TCB and stack. This space should be freed...

General :: Sending File Via Netcat?

Jan 20, 2010

I'm using something like this to send file from one computer to another:To serve file (on computer A):

cat | nc -l -p 1234 To receive file (on computer B): netcat 1234 > can I do the opposite? Let's say I have file on computer B and I want to send it to A but not the way I wrote above, but by making computer that's supposed to receive file (A) be 'listening' server and connect computer that's 'sending' file (B) to server and send the file? Is it possible? I think it might be but I'm not sure how to do this.

In case my above explanation is messed up: How do I send file TO 'server' instead of serving the file on server and then taking it FROM it (like I did above)?

In both cases, I get the argument list too long error message.

I have tried using xargs but I can't seem to get it to work right.

The command

returns a valid answer but it includes all the subdirectories in the file count.
