General :: Cannot Copy File Even As Root (Permission Denied)

Jan 2, 2011

I am attempting to make a backup copy of a file, but every time I try to copy the file, I get a "permission denied error -- even when running as root. The file is on a volume mounted as /media/Data . No problems reading/writing other files on the volume.

Here is the info on the file:
-rw-------. 1 root MailServer.img

I've tried chown but get the permission denied as well. This is a virtual machine image that runs fine, but even with the VM completely shut down, I get the same error.

General :: Copy A Read-Only File And Make The Copy Writable With A Single Cp Command?

Mar 1, 2011

How to copy a Read-Only file in Linux and make the copy writable with a single cp command in Linux (Ubuntu 10.04)? The --no-preserve and --preserve seemed to be good candidates, except that they should "and" the mode flags, while what I am looking for is something that will "or" them (add +w mode).

More details: I have to import a repository from GIT to Perforce. I want that all Perforce depot files are Read-Only (that is how Perforce was designed), while all other files that were derived/copied from depot files are writable. Currently if a Makefile tries to copy a Read-Only file then the derived file will also be Read-only. This leads to build-errors when cp tries to overwrite Read-Only file second time. Of course the --force is a workaround here but then the derived file is also Read-Only. Also I do not want to mess with "chmod" after each "cp" command - I will do that only as the last resort.

General :: Copy Root Filesystem From RAM To Flash?

Jun 7, 2011

I boot up a Linux appliance entirely in RAM, ie. the image has a Linux kernel and an attached ext2 root filesystem.

Now that it's working, I would like to copy the root filesystem from RAM to a NAND flash memory.

Can I just mount the NAND, run "cp -a /* /mnt/nand", reboot with the kernel command line "root=/dev/mtdblock2 rw", and expect Linux to be happy... or is it more involved than this?

# Set to 'yes' to mount the system filesystems read-only.
READONLY=yes
# Set to 'yes' to mount various temporary state as either tmpfs

General :: Copy Certain File Types Recursively While Maintaining File Structure On Destination?

Jun 14, 2011

I have just been bothered by a fairly small issue for some time now. I am trying to search (using find -name) for some .jpg files recursively. This is a Redhat environment with bash.

I get this job done though I need to copy ALL of them and put them in a separate folder BUT I also need to keep the order intact after copying.

For e.g - If I get a JPG file under /home/usr/new/1/ then the destination also needs to be /test/old/new/1/.

At the moment, I am simply putting all files under /test/old/ and I can't somehow get the later /new/1/ folder path created under /test/old/

I understand this could well be done using while OR if else loop, though if someone can just guide me with a hint, I would be really grateful.

I will complete the rest of the steps and was asking here since I am still not comfortable with the shell/bash scripts yet and planning to be really good at it over the next couple of months.

General :: Dd Copy - Hard Drive Clone Fails When Mounting Root Androotblock - /newroot Failed

Oct 27, 2010

I am trying to replace an old, smaller, and dying laptop hard drive with a newer one, using a USB external drive. I first tried cloning disk to disk with Clonezilla, but it failed after cloning my root, swap, and /home directories it froze when it tried to reinstall grub. After 2x trying, I switched to dd, which I have never really used (I am fairly new to Linux in general). The actual command I used was:

Quote:

dd if=/dev/sda of=/dev/sdb bs=4096 conv=notrunc,noerror

All seemed ok and after approximately 2 hours my 80GB drive had been cloned onto my new 250GB, with dd giving what appeared to be a satisfactory closure summary. I tried to mount and access the drive from my external USB enclosure but could not view it, though the data is there, I believe, as the size and bytes show... The error that Dolphin is giving me is:

Quote:

error - wrong fstype, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdb1 Missing codepage or helper program or other error. When I installed the new drive directly into my laptop, it begins to boot (Sabayon 5.4, 2.6.35 kernel) but almost immediately I get (handwritten down, but this is close):

Quote:

detected real_root
mounting /dev/sda1 on /newroot failed: input/output error
!! Could not mount specified ROOT, try again
!! Could not find the root block device in .

[code]....

I am assuming that my issue has something to do with grub, and maybe specific UUIDs that don't match (?) but I'm not really certain. I have both Grub Legacy 0.9x and the newer Grub 2 installed (Sabayon is already moving over) but I still boot with Legacy, not with the new 2, as I don't know how to switch, and am not sure if I should yet. I thought that dd copied bit for bit, and I added the noerror´ just to try to get it all transferred, so I don't know what went wrong exactly, though something seems wrong with grub and the bootloader, I guess...

My problem is that the dvd is not empty, and I'd like to overwrite it or wipe it before copying the new .iso, but k3b displays an error if I try to overwrite it, it says it doesn't have the necessary rights and proposes me to use k3bsetup. I have it too, but I don't know how to use it.

General :: Cannot Open File In RW Mode - Filling Root File System With Log Files

Nov 3, 2010

I work for a company that makes portable devices running Linux and I was recently asked to make the underlying file system read-only for "security" purposes. Since the distribution is based on LinuxFromScratch, I know that very little writing happens at run time. So, even if the device runs on a usb flash device, I doubt that putting the root file system RO will be that beneficial. I am actually more concerned about a process actually breaking because it cannot open a file in RW mode than a process going rogue and filling the root file system with log files, etc. I'd really like to ear what kind of advantages disadvantages there really is with read-only file-systems.

General :: Copy One File To All Folders?

Apr 4, 2009

I am developing a Web-based application and have some folders that will generally reside outside of the Web accessible area of the server. However, since some people will not be able to store those folders outside of the "public_html" folder, I am looking to put a blank "index.php" inside of every folder within that section of the application. To make things easier, I would like to know if there might be a way to recursively copy one file into every folder in a certain location.

In other words, is there a command that might do something like:
Code:
> cp -R index.php /home/user/public_html/source-files/*
Basically, I want every directory inside of "source-files" to get a copy of "index.php". The directory hierarchy within "source-files" can go at least three or four levels deep, so the command would need to be recursive. I am looking for a command-line statement that I can type to perform this action.

General :: Different File Size After Copy

Feb 27, 2010

Firstly, I did perform a search on this problem in these forums, but didn't quite get what I was looking for. So I hope I don't yelled at for making a duplicate post. So I used rsync to backup my webroot to another nix machine. du -hs gave me 1.3 G on the source machine and 1.1 G on the backup machine. I tried to compare the individual files and noticed a trend. The files on backup machine were always smaller than the files on source machine. The source uses SATA drive, destination uses IDE. So this time I rsynced locally to another folder on the source machine. Same size anomaly. So i did a simple cp file ~/file and same size anomaly. So it's not a rsync issue.

I took a file and ran md5sum on both, the source file and destination file. To my surprise, even though the file size was different, they had the same md5sum. Now, let it be known that the source machine is a production server and the dir i rsynced was being used, serving pages to the web. I googled about this and came up with stuff like open descriptors and holes. I don't understand this stuff and was wondering if this was really the case. What are those if it is the case? And my backup copy is 100% identical right? There are thousands of files and I ran md5sum only on couple. Can I take comfort that when time comes, I can restore using my backup without any problems?

I am currently using debian 6.0 .While moving the file , electricity vanished. It happened that the file being moved wasn't at source neither destination folder.Is there a file copy program which works atomically (like teracopy in windows) .Yeah , common sense would be to manually copy then delete file from source . Can't this be integrated into GUI by a program?
