OpenSUSE :: Peazip Will Not Archive - It Reports An Error (127)

Nov 5, 2010

File create archive etc etc


R-Click Add


R-Click Convert

All operation result in a seperate window displaying the progress of the compression but with an error.

Error 127, cannot execute requested operation.

Then when the progress bar reaches full it resets and then resets again continuing the same loop with it becoming slower with every repetition. There is no information posted in the report log of the window. Except that the task has started.

I'm trying to simply archive a file and password protect it. This shouldent be such a difficult task.

P7zip also gives me its own set of errors when archiving.

General :: How To Archive - Tar - Every Subdir

Jul 26, 2010

I am stuck trying to write a script that does the following :

1. loops through all subdirectories of a given directory

2. for each found subdirectory, first create an archive carrying the same name as the subdir itself

3. then moves the actual subdirectory to a different path

Here is what I have so far: my base dir is /home/bob/Bureau, and it contains two sub dirs, "florissant 86 a" and "saule 84" I would like to create one archive for each subdir in /media/public/atelierPhotoArchive and then move the folder entirely to /tmp/photo.write

Everything goes well until I have to either tar or loop through the file with spaces in names

This last statement outputs different lines after each space in my lst file

Question 1: Is it possible to make it output once for each line in the file ?

Question 2: Is it possible to do some exec tar in the find command? I had difficulties extracting the "short" name for the archive ("saule 84") without /home/bob/Bureau, it is possible only with the printf %f, but how in the world can I get this value in to the exec option ?

General :: Using A Tar Archive To Update Directory?

Feb 6, 2009

I have a directory that contains some files. Let's call it ./ActiveContent.

I have a tar ball that contains some updated files, let's call it updates.tar.gz.

How do I unpack updates.tar.gz in the directory ./ActiveContent so that files in updates.tar.gz overwrite the identical named files in the directory?

That is to say, an option that directs the utility to over write existing files wile expanding a tar archive into a directory?

General :: How To Untar An Archive From One Directory To Another

Jul 19, 2010

I want to untar a package from one directory to another directory, directly from the command prompt. I want to untar the joomla package into the htdocs directory of xampp. How to do that directly from command prompt ? The reason i am asking this is if I try the "drag and drop" way, it won't be possible as xampp is stored in /opt directory and without super-user authentication nothing can be saved into it. You can argue saying that why did I untar xampp initially in su mode ,but that had to be done so that apache doesnt give me any start-up problems.

General :: Forcing Tar To Create An Empty Archive?

Apr 21, 2010

I'm trying to use tar to tar files before transfer, so I can keep the entire file path rather than losing it along the way. However, when I try to tar an empty folder, it tells me that it is cowardly refusing to create an empty archive. I want to keep the empty folder on the other end, but don't want to put anything else into the archive to make it non-empty. Is there any way to do this?

I need files to be <= 5GB to put on S3. Right now I have an ugly tar / gzip / cut before upload, then cat / zcat / tar on download, but it's really ugly - and nearly every archiver should support archive splitting right? What's the best way?

General :: Tar Fails To Extract Archive Containing Special Characters?

Jun 5, 2011

The command tar -xvf wpa_tables.tar gives this error

tar: ./xai-0/334Regency: Cannot open: Invalid or incomplete multibyte or wide character
tar: Exiting with failure status due to previous errors

Obviously the backslash is giving tar some problem, but I've been all over the docs and can't figure out how to either make it skip this file or interpret the character literally. Here's my command history to show some of the options I've tried which don't work.

tar --no-wildcards -xkvf wpa_tables.tar
tar --exclude ./xai-0/\334Regency -xkvf wpa_tables.tar
tar --exclude "./xai-0/\334Regency" -xkvf wpa_tables.tar
tar --ignore-command-error -xkvf wpa_tables.tar
tar --ignore-failed-read -xkvf wpa_tables.tar
tar --transform 's/\/slash/g' -xvf wpa_tables.tar ./xai-0/\334Regency

I'm totally out of ideas at this point and would welcome some input from more experienced members.

General :: Ubuntu 10.04 - Tar Command To Archive Home Directory

Sep 3, 2010

Ubuntu 10.04. As part of my nightly backup script I archive my home directory with the following command
tar -cvpzf /quitelarge/_mirror/mirror1/home-ken.gz /home/ken 2>> /quitelarge/_mirror/tar-error.log

It seems to work fine and I have recovered files from the archive on occasion. Actually I keep 7 rolling daily backups and a monthly burn to DVD. I had an sftp connection made by Nautilus to my server. Ubuntu for whatever reason places an icon on the desktop showing the connection. When I ran the script it decided to archive everything on my server - all 1.4 TB. I caught the problem when home-ken.gz was about 5 GB. I stopped the process, closed the sftp connection, rolled back the backups and tried again. This time I got a file of the expected size - about 45 MB.

In the error log I did find that the tar process was trying to suck the entire contents of the server into the archive file.
tar: /home/ken/.gvfs/sftp for ken on taylor10/proc/asound/ICH5/pcm0c/sub0: file changed as we read it
tar: /home/ken/.gvfs/sftp for ken on taylor10/proc/asound/ICH5/pcm0c: file changed as we read it
tar: /home/ken/.gvfs/sftp for ken on taylor10/proc/asound/ICH5: file changed as we read it
tar: /home/ken/.gvfs/sftp for ken on taylor10/proc/asound: file changed as we read it
tar: /home/ken/.gvfs/sftp for ken on taylor10/proc/scsi: file changed as we read it
tar: /home/ken/.gvfs/sftp for ken on taylor10/proc/acpi/event: Cannot open: Permission denied
tar: /home/ken/.gvfs/sftp for ken on taylor10/proc/acpi/fadt: Cannot open: Permission denied
tar: /home/ken/.gvfs/sftp for ken on taylor10/proc/acpi/dsdt: Cannot open: Permission denied
tar: /home/ken/.gvfs/sftp for ken on taylor10/proc/irq/21/smp_affinity: Cannot open: Permission denied

Is there an option I can place on the tar command to tell it NOT to follow the ssh connection which is sitting on my desktop? The closest thing I see in the documentation is -h which tells tar to "follow symlinks; archive and dump the files they point to." I am NOT specifying -h so if the ssh connection is treated as a symlink by tar I would still not expect the remote contents to be tarred.
