General :: Command Line - Determine What File Occupies A Given Sector?
Apr 14, 2010
In Linux, I'd like to know how to find the file(s) if any which as using a particular sector on the hard drive (ext2/3). There is a similar question here regarding Windows, however I need a Linux command line solution (this is a headless system).
I have a headless server set up with no GUI on board.I know there is some way to display the installed hardware , I just can't remember how.What I'm looking for in particular is determine the type and speed of the PCI-e slots.
When you run the following cp command in the BASH terminal, how does Linux know which files are the source and which are the destination when copying multiple files from one location to another?How does Linux know that the services, motd, fstab, and hosts files are the source and the /home/fred/my_dir is the destination?This question came up in a Linux class and I was not sure of the answer. I was thinking it is based on the source path entered ending with a file path and the destination being a directory, but was not sure.

I have a jar, and I need to replace a class in it, at this moment, I can only open it with "archive manager" and then drag and drop the new compiled class into the jar, but I think this is really boring, if I can do with with just a command ?
I've got a Debian Squeeze computer on which the graphics have packed up, but the terminal in single user mode work perfectly fine.
There are a few files on this Debian computer that I want to transfer off, to a networked computer, but I have no idea how to do this.
The destination computer is a freshly re-setup Mandriva install, without (as yet) samba. I don't think it's necessary though. The Mandriva install works fine, has graphics, etc, but can't see the Debian Squeeze computer on the network, possibly because it's in single user mode, thus prompting the problem of how to transfer the files, using only a command line.
I've spent hours trying to scan + shrink a multipage PDF documentlosing readability. This is the first time I've ever needed to do this! (I had to scan each page as ".jpg" in order to email and open on another computer, so I could not scan to PDF directly, which I think is why each page was so large; lower DPIs made the text too blurry.)I found this great tip on UbuntuGeek...but anyone can do this if GhostScript is installed:
I can do:mkdir messages and then: touch messages/hello.txt Is there a command that will do both - create the directory if it doesn't exist, and then the empty file? Something like: touch -p messages/hello.txt
