It's meant to move old files from my Downloads folder into an archive file (later tar them). The directory exists, I've used $PWD and nautilus and ls to make sure it's there, yet for every file it gives
Code: find: `cp /home/chris/Download/foo.bar /home/chris/Downloads/ARCHIVE/2011-08-19': No such file or directory I tried to test it on a different destination, specifically my home folder. IT still gave me the error.IS it a bad syntax within find or something else? I'm running a 32-bit system with 11.04
I have a directory called /data In this directory I have some files like abcejb.jar,12_ab_ejb.jar, shejb.jar, test I need a shell script like... 1st I want to check if there is any ejb file exists in the directory using some condition If ejb files exists I want to redirect the ejb files list to a file called list. Now I want to copy all the files in the list file to some remote system.
I am currently interning at a place and my job is to essentially learn UNIX. My supervisor gives me problems here and there to help guide me with my learning but for the most part I'm doing this all by self-teaching myself. Needless to say I have run into a few obstacles...for instance-Create a *one* line command that, using tar, will collect the full /usr/local directory (you need to run this as root again) and copy the whole /usr/local structure under /optFor example /usr/local/bin/hello will become /opt/local/bin/hello, etc. I want this as follows:1. /usr/local is collected by tar, but the output of this tar command is its stdout.. what you get from the previous stdout, you compress with gzip and send it to stdout again 3. get this output and decompress with gzip.. get this output and pipe to tar in a way that will extract the tree under /opt.If anyone knows how I could go about doing this, please let me know, or at the very least point me in the right direction. What I've got so far (which could be completely wrong) is:tar cvf - usr/local/ | gzip -c - | gunzip -c - | tar xvf -in theory I feel like this should work (except for extracting the tree under /opt...i'm kinda stuck there)
I was transferring some files from my laptop (running FC6) to a server at my work (don't know what kind) with "scp -rpC" and it stalled, don't know why. Now when I try to delete the files from the server so I can start again I get the following error message
How can I create multipart rar file in Linux using the official console rar client?RAR 3.90 Copyright (c) 1993-2009 Alexander Roshal 16 Aug 2009Shareware version Type RAR -? for helpI want a multipart rar with each part size being 150 MB.
I have a project due for my Intro to C++ class and we are suppose to generate a file listing that will take an input of a C++ source code with .cpp extension and make a copy of it with a .lst extention that will have a line number preceding each and every line.
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
I can't get sed to actually change the file, clearly there's something basic not working, can anyone point me in the right direction? I know nothing about scripting. Oh yeah, all the directories have spaces which was why so elaborated.
find . -name "*epub" | while read file; do unzip -o "$file" content.opf && mv content.opf content.opf.bak && sed 's/<dc:language>UND</dc:language>/<dc:language xsi:type="dcterms:RFC4646">EN</dc:language>/' < content.opf.bak > content.opf && zip "$file" content.opf && rm -f content.* ; done
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?
I am implementing a strategy to organize my data among the several machines I work with and thought that getting some ISO images out of it could be a good idea because that way data would be 'read only' thus allowing for easier synchronization.
At first I thought of using the "dd" command to create the ISO out of a directory, but it fails code... So, I have two questions:
Is the ISO 'format' capable of storing complex directory structures with long filenames (pretty much as any Linux filesystem does), or are there some inherent limitations?
Supposing the ISO format is not constrained, which command would allow me to create an ISO file out of a directory?
I'm having a rather strange problem - I'm trying to run an executable which is viewable using 'ls -l', and whose assembled code can be seen in programmes such as vi, but when I run it it says "zsh: no such file or directory". Here is a transcript of the commands:
There's been a couple of similar questions on LQ, but only one which seemed to have a vaguely helpful answer was this one. I too am running 64-bit Slackware, so it may well be a similar problem. The poster installs "ld-linux.so.2", which I don't have on my system (I have "ld-linux-x86-64.so.2" installed, though)... However, he gets it from a package using apt, and the source package which contains ld-linux.so.2 seems to be glibc.
Is ld-linux-x86-64.so.2 in any sense equivalent to ld-linux.so.2? Have other people seen this problem, and do they believe installing ld-linux.so.2 will solve the problem? If so, is installing glibc the right way of going about it?

What does this code do, why, and what's causing it to go wrong?
I'm working with a dual-boot laptop running Ubuntu 10.0/Windows 7 and a Debian 5 VPS while the OS's shouldn't have much impact on my question.
What I would like to do is create a html page that I can upload to my VPS which lists all of the files/folders on my local 2TB hard drive (Specifically media such as Movies, Music, TV Shows...). The media obviously will not reside on the server, but I would like to at least have a list which will allow me to select, for instance, a bands artist so that it redirects me to the albums in the directory below.
Ultimately, I'm looking for Open Directory Browsing without actually having the media on my server. I have been attempting to create something to this effect using lynx, however, I'm not sure if it can be done with this command or if it's even possible for that matter.
My laptop keeps shutting down out of nowhere- now more so than ever since installing Ubuntu. After starting a thread in the hardware and laptop section asking anyone if they had a solution to a well known fan problem with the Acer Aspire 5315 (my laptop), the only responses I received were rubbish in nature. Simply put, the Acer Aspire 5315 has a faulty fan which runs only when it wants to- not when the computer NEEDS it to.
I found THIS solution to my problem: [URL]. As suspected, this isn't a BIOS thing as some have told me that it was. But here's the REAL crappy part - the solution posted in this thread works up until you're about to install the fix via the terminal. The commands spit back at me that "No such file or directory exists". THUS, I'm unable to get this thing working.
I need someone to explain to me why the terminal is spitting out the garbage that it is- that no such file or directory exists when attempting to install and launch the fix for this fan issue. Please be as detailed as possible. What? Should I move the script to some sub-directory? how does this input into the terminal?
I have scenrio where i have to check first whether the files exists or not then count of records should not be equal to zero and file should be of current day not the previous day then only process my next task.There are three files totally.please let me know how to write script to achieve the same.
I have a rather strange issue I'm attempting to fix here. One of the servers I work with had a log file reach 2GB in size and stopped logging. The software which is logging to said file cannot be stopped or restarted and does not provide a way to rotate log files -- poor design, I know. So in my infinite wisdom (or stupidity, however you want to read that), I truncated the log file in place with:
Code: >vmsproxy.log When I realized the log file was not being appended to, I checked lsof output and it
Is there any program/script that can create a torrent file for each file in a directory? I have been looking all over but can't seem to find anything of the sort. I have 700+ files I REALLY don't want to make my self.
we have installed vignette software on the linux box and would like to uninstall it. To uninstall it we need to delete one file named vpd.properties. When we used locate vpd.properties, the file is found in 2 places. But when we used the ls -a in those locations the file is not seen. basically we want to remove that file. If we do rm vpd.properties, this also doesn't work. Also when we used find -H vpd.properties the file is not found. What is wrong here. I am sure the file vpd.properties will be added to file system as part of vignette. Can anyone suggest what could be wrong here.We logged in as root user to remove this file. Installation is done twice using root and vignette user ids. Thats why file is located in 2 places.
