General :: Create Archives Of A Directory Tree On Ubuntu Box?

Oct 29, 2010

Are there any other archiving tools than tar that preserve Linux file permissions and user/group flags? I want to create archives of a directory tree on my ubuntu box. The directory trees are large, a first run with tar cvpzf archive.tgz /home/foo/bar yielded a 5GB archive. I also want to keep all permissions and other flags and special files.I'm fine with a 5GB archive, however to look inside that archive -- since it is a compressed tar archive -- the whole 5GB have to be decompressed first! (Or so it appears when opening it with the archive viewer -- I'm happy to be corrected.)So I need a way to "backup" a directory (tree) while preserving full filesystem attributes and right and creating an archive with an "index" that hasn't to be decompressed for browsing its contents. An archive is either a single file, or a (small) set of files that carries full and complete information within this file/s. That is, it can live on any filesystem (size permitting), it can be burnt onto a DVD, you can split it (after which the point of this question is really lost - but still), ...

General :: Group Member Not Able To Write To Group's File?

Feb 8, 2011

I have a group (GROUP) with a number of users. I recently added a new user (NEW). NEW is able to read but not write group files, whereas all the other users in the group can read and write to the group files. The permissions for the group files indicate that all members of group should have write permission -rwxrwxr-x

/etc/group indicates that NEW is a member of GROUP


Don't know if it matters, but both OLD and NEW write to the GROUP files over an internet connection. why NEW can't write to GROUP files? Is there a maximum number of members in a group that I might have exceeded?

Ubuntu :: Command Line To Copy Files From One Location To Another / Retain Source Files Group / User?

Feb 20, 2011

Is there a method at the command line to copy files from one location to another and retain the source files group and user?I'm migrating some MySQL files from one machine to another.I want to back-up the original files in the directory presently. They have owner:group of mysql, some have owner:group root:mysql and so on. To copy them under cli or Nautilus everything changes to root for I execute sudo cp or gksudo nautilus and copy via gui.

Since it is MySQL data I could simply do a dump of the database and restore it on the other machine. But there's about 20 db's and I want to do this via a copy for it will be faster - at least that is what I think.

General :: Extracting And Then Deleting Archives?

Apr 23, 2011

I have a large number of zip-archives which I would like to extract and then delete, keeping only the extracted files. The files are located in a number of directories and I issued the following command, hoping that it would solve my problem (which it didn't):

Code:find . -name "*.zip" -execdir unzip '{}' ; -deleteWhat happened was that find continued to extract the files as intended, but then it deletednot only the zip-archives but also the newly extracted only affected a portion of the files that I had already backed up.I don't have enough space on my hard drive to extract all the files without simultaneously removing any data and I don't have the energy to go through all the directories one by one manually. Surely there must be a better way. Is there a way to fix the code snippet above so that it works as I intended or is there a better way of doing this?

General :: Properly Extracting Archives With Mac Metadata?

Mar 28, 2011

Someone has sent me a zip file containing some fonts. I extracted it using unzip under Linux, and there are empty files in the top level of the archive, and some files similarly named but beginning with ._ in a __MACOSX subdirectory.

I understand that the __MACOSX contents should be metadata, and normally I'd delete it. In this case, however, all of the data seems to be in there! Is there a tool that I can use to reassemble the original data?
