General :: When Boot From The Usb Getting Original Sys Page And Cannot Move From There?

Jul 25, 2011

I have an Acer Aspire one which runs ubuntu 10.04. Recently it has developed a problem upon loading it where the screen will not stop flickering and won't allow me to see anything, let alone try to solve the problem. I did have a good google session and found that others have had this problem before, but I couldn't find a solution that worked. I decided to install the newest version via bootable usb and originally try SysLinux but for some reason it would not work, so I have since tried other programs to create a bootable usb. My problem is that whichever software I use, whenever I boot from the usb I get the original SysLinux page and cannot move from there.

Has SysLinux somehow changed the mbr of my usb stick? I'm basically stuck and this is my only non-essential usb so I don't want to use another one.

P.S. sorry if this is in the wrong section of the forum, I wasn't sure where to put it.

General :: Disk Based Text Editor To Edit File Larger Than Memory?

Aug 2, 2010

I am using Ubuntu and looking for a good editor to edit a file that is > 4GB. I just need to put content at the end and beginning of the file. I suppose I could use something like

cat "text to add" >> huge_file

To append to the file. Is that the route to go? What about prepending? In general, what is the best route if I wanted to edit somewhere in the middle?

I've tried VIM and it fails miserably. I assume emacs and nano would be even worse. What else is there? I assume to accomplish what I am looking for, the editor would have to be specifically designed for this by not keeping the entirety of the file's contents in memory.

General :: Move Ssh Known_hosts File?

Oct 19, 2010

I was wondering if it's possible to move the known_hosts file from ~/.ssh/known_hosts to ~/somewhere/.ssh/known_hosts . I have a server running Plesk and the user home directories do not have write permissions (they do have write permissions within the subfolders, however).

I was able to move the authorized_keys file by editing sshd_config AuthorizedKeysFile , but when I try to log in without password, I'm still prompted every time if I want to add the host to list of known hosts, and it fails to save every time since it cannot write to known_hosts. Thus I am still unable to automate some processes. I'd like known_hosts to be located in the same location as my authorized_keys, which does have correct permissions for users.

General :: Move File From Machine A To B On Same Network?

Nov 23, 2009

I have two servers on my network (at home). Let's call them A and B.

I have a small shell script that I have written on server A that zips up a file, backs up a database. It's triggered by cron once a day.

After I run it, I would like to move this file from server A to server B.

As I said, both are on the same network (in the same room, actually), and so obviously have different network IPs.

What are my options to move these files? It would need to be something that was done in perhaps a shell script that was, like the shell script that zips the files, is triggered by a cron job.

I'm assuming there are actual applications for this sort of theng (rsync?), but can it be done with a shell script? It seems very simple and basic...

How might this be done?


Server A - CentOS v. 5
Server B - RHEL v. 4

General :: Xfce: Save Page As: Single File Vs Multiple Files?

Nov 28, 2010

I am using Xfce as the desktop enviroment and Mozilla Firefox as the webrowser. Within the webrowser window, I do File>Save Page As. I save it, and the result is almost always foo.html and directory foo_files. But I think under KDE I could choose the format, one of them being something like "Single page" (only one file; the colecction of .png, etc is embedded into that file). And this is the format I want Xfce (or Firefox) to use when downloading to hdd.

General :: Move Large Amounts Of Music Within A File Structure?

Dec 20, 2009

i have a car stereo that reads a USB drive with all my music on it, however to sort through the music it uses a method of finding folders containing music, then displaying them all in a list. i find this interface annoying because in order to sort the music by artist i have to go and manually move it out of the album folders by hand, this takes a long time for 11+ GB of music so i was trying to use the linux CLI to quicken the process. use a command like this


mv /media/usb/music/*/*/* /media/usb/music/*/

but for some reason this moves all my music into the last folder alphabetically in my drive, the music is all pre-arranged like this /media/usb/music/artist/album/song

General :: Scripting - Move A List From A Text File To Directory ?

Jan 10, 2011

I'm sure I've done this before and am having a brain fart.

I have run into this a couple of time this last month:

I have a list of torrent files (blahblahhexblah.torrent) saved in a text file. I would like to read the text file and populate the client directory.

I can echo the file using:

But I cannot remember how to pipe the output into the directory, nor can I find any resources that describe the process.

Interestingly enough, I've had a couple of opportunities to do similar tasks with passwords and privileges and even across the LAN in the last few days. Solving this problem will help me solve the others for next time.

General :: Using Lynx To Create Html Page With The File Structure Of A Local Directory

Oct 10, 2010

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.

General :: Move Folders That Contain A File With A Specific Extension To A Destination Folder?

Oct 3, 2010

Many years ago, I converted a portion of my files to an arbitrary format with a specific extension. i no longer desire to have them in this format and i would like begin the process of replacing them because conversion is not an appropriate solution. unfortunately, they are mixed in separate folders of the same root folder with files in my current format of a different extension. I feel it would make this process easier if I were to move every folder that contained a file with the undesired format to a separate root folder. The files are stored on a Linux server and shared via samba. How can I do this with a couple of commands or a script? I am open to other suggestions as well. I want to avoid time spent editing text files. Ultimately, I'd like a command that produced a list of full paths for folders, sorted by the number of levels would be a nice touch. A list of all of the files is clearly not what I'm looking for.
