General :: Exclude Does Not Work With Tar Command

Jul 6, 2011

I don't know why --exclude doesn't work when I use tar command. Please see this code
mahmood@pc:~$ l a/
1.txt 2.txt 3.txt b/
mahmood@pc:~$ tar cvjf compressed.tar.bz2 --exclude=/home/mahmood/a/b/ a/
As you can see although I excluded b/ but tar command ignored that.

Ubuntu :: Exclude File From Terminal Command?

Jul 12, 2010

Well i downloaded a program with many .deb files ( At least 15 ) so i wanna execute them all trough the terminal so i typed

patowlmc@patowlmc-desktop:~$ cd /home/patowlmc/Downloads/i386
patowlmc@patowlmc-desktop:~/Downloads/i386$ sudo dpkg -i *.deb
Readme.deb: command not found

As you can see all files in the folder are .deb packages, but one: The Readme file, wich is a text file.

I know I just have to move the file to somewhere else, and everything should work, but i wanna know if there's a command for excluding a file or something.

P.D. I totally trust the program, so don't worry about so many .deb files.

OpenSUSE :: Exclude Files From A ZIP Archive?

Mar 21, 2010

opensuse v11.2, linux x86_64
ZIP v2.32

I wish to exclude some files from a zip archive. On other OSes to exclude an entire directory I would use the "-x" option like so:

zip -r archive-name * -x dir1/* Simple. And just add "-x"'s as needed (or use an exclusion file).

Not how it works here, it would seem. AFAICT all "-x" options are ignored. (The entries in an exclusion file also.) For instance, "-x diy/mplayer/*" should ignore everything in the <diy/mplayer> directory. It does not. I have tried fully qualified paths as well; no joy.

What is different about ZIP on linux?

Debian :: Ftpsync Still Downloading Old Files Despite Exclude?

Sep 6, 2015

I was thinking of migrating my apt-mirror repository to the recommended ftp scrips: [URL] .....

I pre populated my pool with already downloaded files, and setup the scripts.

However, if I run the bin/ftpsync, and monitor rsync with lsof -p, I can see that it is still downloading files from oldstable (wheezy) despite exclude options.

I'm guessing it's a configuration error, but I can't seem to figure it out. Any thoughts? My etc/ftpsync.conf is as follows:

Code: Select allMIRRORNAME=`hostname -f`

[Code] ....

Actually, I don't think it works like I thought it did. A few guides I found listed the exclude options, but the sample config file has this:

Code: Select all## If you do want to exclude files from the mirror run, put --exclude statements here.
## See rsync(1) for the exact syntax, these are passed to rsync as written here.

So it looks like it doesn't exclude the suites at all.

Ubuntu Security :: GRsync --Exclude Command Syntax / Backup A Whole Startup Disk To Another?

Jul 19, 2010

I'm trying to backup a whole startup disk to another with GRSYNC but I don't need some files or directories. For example, I don't want to backup my 'swapfile1' (I do not have a dedicated swap partition) or the 'media' directory' in order to no enter a looping sync.I've searched the web for the correct syntax of the --exclude command but none have worked if applied in the advanced option "before" rsync starts. These a sample of NOT workin syntaxes:

exclude /media or -- exclude 'media' or -- exclude "media"

same for swapfile1:

exclude swapfile1 or -- exclude 'swapfile1' or -- exclude "swapfile1"

General :: How To Exclude Sub Directories From ZIP CLI

Jul 22, 2010

I'm trying to create backup/archive my Ubuntu 10.04 system files (so I can restore it in case my system get corrupted). More specifically, I'm trying to zip the important files in my root directory not including my home directory (which includes my documents which I backup separately/more frequently) to an external hard drive attached via USB (called 'My Book').Since File Roller didn't give me quite the level of control I was looking for, I created a script that I could execute to backup and archive regularly.

General :: Exclude Rsync Excludes From Delete?

Jul 9, 2010

im using rsync to sync files across multiple machines.

using the following:

rsync -az -e "ssh -o UserKnownHostsFile=/dev/null -o StrictHostKeyChecking=no"
--delete --delete-excluded --force --exclude=.git --exclude=.bundle
--exclude=tmp --exclude=log/* --exclude=*.log --exclude=*.pid
user@host:/path/to/src/ /var/build/dest

I want to exclude all log files from being transferred from the src to dest and delete all existing ones on the destination so im using --exclude=*.log with --delete-excluded which works great ...

but i want to keep a certain log file intact on the destination. I want a --exclude-from-delete option

Is this possible with rsync?

Server :: Build The Virtual Machines To Exclude The Actual Mail Files And Mail Logs From CentOS?

Oct 12, 2010

I have to administer a few mail servers, a mail log server, 4 nameservers and a web server -all running on Centos 5 server distributions. Now I have a task: to avoid accidental crashes on the production servers while installing updates, my boss asked me to do clones (these clones will all be VMware virtual machines) of the servers (EXCLUDING the actual e-mails and mail log contents) and then to run those clones on VMWare Server. This way, first I will install and test updates on the clones and - if they will be running without crashes - I will apply the updates on the real production servers themselves. I have already installed VMWare Server 2.0 I have a few questions:

- How do I build the virtual machines to exclude the actual mail files and mail logs? Can I use VMware Converter for this purpose, or do I have to use another program?
- How do I actually do this cloning? Is there a tutorial on how to do this?

Ubuntu :: Tar Newer And Exclude Options Does Not Run Together

Feb 25, 2010

Im trying to make backups using tar, and incremental backups using --newer. The scripts are:

tar -czvf $DISKPATH/backupRepos.tgz /home/repos/ --exclude /home/repos/Temp
for general backup (on saturdays)
tar -czvf --newer="`date -r $DISKPATH/backupRepos.tgz +%F`" $DISKPATH/backupRepos-inc.tgz /home/repos/ --exclude /home/repos/Temp/ for incremental the rest of the week.

The problem is that the first script runs OK, excluding /home/repos/Temp from the backup, but on the second, it makes incremental OK, but doesnt exclude Temp folder. Anybody knows how can i fix this script to continue making incremental but excluding also?
