General :: Save / Sort Files In Sequential Order Sector By Sectyor

Aug 26, 2010

I have a china phone which has mp3 player and unfortunately it reads the file names in its memory card in sequential order according where the file is saved. The file system is NTFS. cod

**Note: DDD song was last because I saved AAA to EEE songs then later added DDD song

Then suddenly i deleted BBB song and replaced it with FFF song code...

This is kinda lame. but the OS of the phone has no capability sorting the file according to filename in its built in mp3 player.

my question is how can I sort the files sector by sector(is my term right?) so the lame mp3 player would read the files finally in alphabetically sorted order. I Will plug my phone on my PC

I am using ubuntu 10.4

Programming :: Php - Sort Numerical Descending Then By Alphabetical?

Mar 10, 2009

Using PHP 5.x. I would like to sort a set of values first numerically, then alphabetically. For example, here's my code so far:


print "<p style="font-family:verdana;font-size:10pt">
$myArray = array("1223:starfruit", "34112:oranges", "1223:zucchini", "321:apples", "34112:pears", "1223:tomatoes");


I have fiddled with array_multisort but I can't seem to get my head around it or the many sort routines in PHP.

Ubuntu :: Terminal Command To List Disk Usage In Order?

Mar 29, 2010

I regularly use 'df -h' to check usage on each of my primary directories and mount points.

I'm currently somewhat confused by disk usage within my filesystem, so I'd like to do the following:

Display directory size of all, or say, the 10 largest, subdirectories to a specified directory. So, if I passed the root (/) directory, output would list the subdirectory of / with the largest disk usage first and its associated disk usage listed in human readable format (either M or G suffix as appropriate), followed by the subdirectory and usage for the second largest directory and so on.

Can anyone suggest a command or series of commands to do this?

Ubuntu :: Command / Script To Rename Files In Datetime Order?

Jun 1, 2010

I'm trying to rename all files in a folder as such:


Renaming them is no problem, the problem I have is, they need to be in order of the datetime that they were taken, so that the 1.jpg would be the oldest file there. The difference in filetimes is going to be very small, around 3 or 4 tenths of a second.

The reason I need to do this is that I have another script (not quite finished yet), that takes the next three files in a loop and applies qtpfsgui to them to output an HDR image to another folder, then move on to 4,5 & 6, and: repeat.

For installation, I'm changing the BIOS boot order to boot from network.Once the OS installation is over, I need to manually change the BIOS boot order to boot from hard-disk.

Debian :: Execute Command Mactime In Order To Control Changes Made To The File System?

I am trying to execute command mactime in order to control changes made to the file system, but I am getting an error. I am running the shell as root, and it is the first time I run the command in this system - Debian Squeeze up to date. The I/O is as follows:

The first three lines of output are the ones that are worrying at the moment; I am not concerned with the last. Although error messages suggest the programs date, hostname and uname do not exist in /bin directory, they are available as shown by

The Windows PC will not connect to the internet whereas the Linux server will.What do I need to setup and in what order to get the pc working on the internet?

The path that I think I need to take is to disable dhcp on the broadband router and setup the server as dhcp (how and what); setup the rules in the firewall (how and what rules?) and setup dns and dhcp (how and what?)

General :: Win7 - Multiple OS Install Order?

I am currently running Windows 7. I want to install the latest ubuntu (which I know I can just install right on top of &) but I also want to install FreeBSD and either Windows Server 2003 (maybe 2008 if i can get my hands on it). What would be the best way to go about installing these 3 OSes next to W7? I was also thinking about just upgrading my hard drive to a 2TB internal anyways, so waiting to get that is also an option, then installing everything in the "best" order. I also want to try installing Mac sometime too once I upgrade hardware.

General :: Rename Images So They Burn To CD In Order

May 7, 2011

I have a bunch of images named:

317 (2)a.jpg

In my file browser (Nautilus), they are displayed in the correct numerical order. However, in Brasero when I order them, it orders them strangely (correctly, but not the way I want them to). They order like this:



Can someone recommend a naming convention to rename all these files to so they are in the correct order (for example, cameras use IMG_xxxx.JPG, which is nice)?
Can someone give me a Linux command line rename command for these files so they are renamed to display and therefore burn in the correct order?

They're standard JPEG files, so ordering them by the date in the EXIF data might work. I just need the correct commands, or GUI - I don't mind - to get them in order.

General :: In What Order Are Files And Directories Copied When Using Cp -R?

Jun 26, 2011

If I execute the following command:
cp -R /myfiles /mydestination

If myfiles contains several sub-directories and files, in what order will they be copied? For example, directories might be named 0123a, 9993c, myfolder, xfolder.

They are not copied in alphabetical order OR in date order OR in the order they appear when using a standard ls command as far as I can tell, so what actually does determine the order?

I am trying to determine the order that the cp command uses in order to determine how far along my copy command made it before it stopped. For example, I was hoping to be able to determine it copied 3 of the 4 directories successfully.

General :: Can't Change The Boot Partition Order?

I recently installed Ubuntu on one of my partitoins. Sinec I am new, I formatted that partition to install a different type. Now when I boot my machine, instead of booting to my Windows partitoin, it boots to my blank Linux partition and gives me a Linux prompt.

I can boot from the Ubuntu DVD, by changing it in my BIOS, but I can't change the boot partition order within Linux (that I know of).

General :: Change The Macintosh Boot Order?

Feb 19, 2010

I'm working with an employer as part of a college internship. I work on anyone's computer that brings it in. Some lady brought in a macintosh. I'm not here to give my opinion on evil, controlling corporations, but I can't figure out how to get the thing to change boot order.

It has an old and unsupported version of OSX, it's "panther" and I can't even install any firefox after 2.0. It has 256mb ram and a 1.8ghz single core so I thought to dual boot it with debian.

-Tried holding "C"
-Tried holding "option key" (alt)
-Tried holding command (windows) + option + shift + delete
-Went into system prefs and chose "startup disk" but it doesn't list the CD drive at all.

The bios, or whatever it is, is completely blank at startup besides an apple logo.

General :: Changing Boot Order With Grub

Feb 21, 2011

I'm working my way through my Linux self-education and I'm hitting a slight road block. After consulting forum posts here and elsewhere, I have tried to alter my grub boot order by editing my menu.lst file found in /boot/grub. I don't seem to be having any luck. Changing the default [value] doesn't seem to work, nor does the savedefault. Below is a copy of my file.

# menu.lst - See: grub(8), info grub, update-grub(8)
# grub-install(8), grub-floppy(8),
# grub-md5-crypt, /usr/share/doc/grub
# and /usr/share/doc/grub-doc/.

default 4
# Set the default entry to the entry number NUM. Numbering starts from 0, and
# the entry number 0 is the default if the command is not used.
# You can specify 'saved' instead of a number. In this case, the default entry
# is the entry saved with the command 'savedefault'.
# WARNING: If you are using dmraid do not use 'savedefault' or your
# array will desync and will not let you boot your system.

## timeout sec
# Set a timeout, in SEC seconds, before automatically booting the default entry
# (normally the first entry defined).

# Hides the menu by default (press ESC to see the menu)
