Slackware :: Huge Amount Of Groups (LFS Built)

Feb 19, 2010

Does anyone notice that Slackware's user/groups is cluttered with things no one will ever need, do you need be to be part of the slocate group? like really? Why doesn't every program just have its own group then, I look at my distro (LFS built), SuSE and some others and I can't help but notice the huge amount of groups in slackware, if you going to add groups for everything then why in the universe do we even need sudo for? Just make the binary you want to work a group and change its ownership..... wtf is Pat and the rest of Slackware doing?

Debian :: Upon Logging In - Get A Huge Amount Of /dev/null - Permission Denied

Mar 16, 2009

I've all of a sudden been getting permission denied for almost everything I try to do. Upon logging in, I get a huge amount of "/dev/null: Permission denied"

The only way I can manage to get to the terminal is by Ctrl-C. It never brings up the command line, unless I do that.

If I try to startX, I get errors, also saying permission denied, and then one that says


I also get many "failed" errors when booting, most of them saying that a file could not be found/located.

Check the thread link at the top for other information in the first post.

I could reinstall Debian, but the computer I am using is a Libretto 110CT (64MB RAM), which has only a PCMCIA drive, for which I have a USB port replicator. There is no CD drive.

It was also a custom install fitted for the computer, so I'd rather not have to set everything up again, nor would I know how to exactly, as I've never done it before.

Ubuntu :: Moving Files In Terminal \ Moving Files That Have Root Permissions?

Mar 4, 2010

I have limited experience in terminal, but let me first explain what I am trying to do to see if there is some easier way to do it. Basically I want to change the skin in aMSN. I downloaded the new skin but am unable to unzip or move it without /root permissions. I don't know how to acquire this without being in terminal. So I figured there had to be some way to go into the terminal and use it to move the unzipped folder from the desktop to the aMSN skins folder.

Ubuntu :: Moving Files To A Pendrive Renders 0 Bytes Files And Files Gets Deleted

Jun 10, 2011

I get a SD card. Put in the SD reader. It's empty. I go to my super-important-pictures-to-a-monthly-relatory folder and select all files. Select them for MOVE. Paste them on the SD card. When the move/paste process is finished, i click on the "Eject" button on top of the SD card name. Card's ejected. I can't access the card anymore. I take out the card and put on my other computer. From 300 pictures, there are only 10 available, the remaining ones are there, but with 0bytes and unrecoveable. I panic. I go back to my main computer, my pictures are not there anymore. The pictures were on the Home folder. I panic again. I reset the computer and boot on the LiveCD. I install foremost, scalpel, photorec and about everything till my USB drive complains about being filled up. I run everything and I can't recover my files. I'm in the danger of getting fired. Things like that makes Windows sounds more appealing. When you securely remove a pendrive, things get REALLY pasted there before screwing everything up with a removal.

Ubuntu :: HUGE Syslog And Daemon.log Files?

Jul 25, 2010

I have a 60GB partition with / and home on it. I logged on yesterday and it gave me a warning saying that I had only 1.9 GB of disk space left. I ignored it for a day and assumed that i had too many videos and pics.But the next day i had not added any files or downloaded any software but i had 0B left. I used the disk usage analyser and found that 33GBs came from /var/log. It was from two log files. syslog and daemon.log 16.5GB each!! I opened them up and i found that this line of text was repeated hnundreds of thousands of times.

Ubuntu :: Md5sum - Fast Way To Verify Huge Files

Oct 29, 2010

I'm looking for a fast way to verify a copy of a folder with 150Gigs of data, in 33 files. Some of the files are a few kb, while a few are 20-30Gigs. I've done a file count, which is quick, but doesn't verify that all the files are intact. I tried running md5sum on them, which works, but will probably take as long as copying the files in the first place. Diff works too, but is slow too.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Opening Huge Wave Files?

Jun 24, 2011

I have a wav file bigger than 8GB. i recorded it on a windows PC. unfortunately wav files cant be bigger than 2GB. somehow i got a file that is almost 9GB. I tried to chop the file under ubuntu into smaller pieces to open it part by part. i used gnome split to divide the file and made 10 parts out of it. now i have these parts of the data which i cant read with no program except for gnome split to merge them together again - which would only bring me to the beginning of my problem. so my question is: is there any other way to open/ split&open a wav file of that size or maybe a way to open the splitted file partially?

Ubuntu :: Create Loop Which Is Contingent On Amount Of Files In Folder

Dec 25, 2010

I've read the documentation but can't figure it out. Let's say that I want to write a shell script which will rename every .jpg file in a folder to prepend "Linux_" to it.Challenge #1: how do I create a loop which is contingent on the amount of files in that folder Challenge #2: how do I know that file's respective name? I think it should look like this:

Loop /home/administrator/Images/*.jpg

Ubuntu :: /var/log Files Are Huge; Mounting Large Hard Drives?

Oct 9, 2010

syslog, messages and kern.log are incredibly huge files that are taking up a lot of space on my hard drive. Is it safe to remove them and/or to reduce logging so it doesn't take such an enormous amount of hard disk memory? If so, how can I reduce the logging so it doesn't produce logs that are 10s of GB in size?Also, mounting a drive places it into the folder /media. Will it become problematic if the size of the mounted drive exceeds the amount of free space available on my Ubuntu partition?

Ubuntu :: 10.4 Making HUGE Log Files--running Out Of Disk Space?

Feb 2, 2011

I started getting errors about running out of disk space in root this morning. I hunted up what's taking all the space; var/log is 39GB (Ubuntu is installed on a 50G partition.) It's specific files that live in that directory, not subfolders. The files are:

kern.log = 11.6 GB
messages (plain text file) = 11.4 GB
kern.log.1 = 6.1 GB

Ubuntu :: Libreoffice Writer Or Natty Produce Huge Files

May 3, 2011

I do monthly reports by copying the previous document, update the text and change the images. The images are the same size and numbers each months. Since last month I upgraded my laptop to Natty and suddenly my document went from 942 kB to 10.1 MB in .odt. When saving to PDF the usual size of 472 went up to 1.9 MB. I have searched the net and the forums but haven't seen anything about a similar issue.

I'm not sure if it's an issue that is from the previous document being produced in Open Office and now updated and saved in Libreoffice. Or if it's somehow something to do with the upgrade from Maverick to Natty. I would hope I don't have to uninstall Libreoffice and install Open Office as a solution (which I understand is not entirely easy in Natty, something I read about Open Office being transitional to Libre). I can't email simple documents to customers that's over 10 MB large...

Ubuntu :: Should Mediatomb Generate 3 Separate Of Huge Log Files With 5gb Of Data

Jul 4, 2011

I streamed video through a my computer with mediatomb yesterday. The problem is that now, I got these huge log files. I am running out of memory (less than 1 gb left) as we speak. They're filled with ufw entries, but my question is:

I read somewhere about a program called logrotate that were supposed to keep logs from getting to big, is this wrong and should mediatomb generate 3 separate log files with 5gb of data each for just 2 hours of streaming?

Ubuntu Servers :: Deleted Log Files Taking Up Huge Disk Space?

Sep 7, 2010

My /var/ partition continues to fill up on all my servers, and it is because the logs in /var/log/apache2 or /var/log/mysql are being deleted during log rotate, but their file handles are being held open. Thus, a "du -sh /var/log" shows the correct values, but "df | grep /var" shows something much different.

It seems that the log files rotate, however if I run "lsof | grep deleted" it returns lots of files that are no longer visible in the directory, however refuse to clear themselves off the disk.

The only way I have found to make these log files go away (and thus clear up the disk space on the partition I should have) is to restart either apache or mysql, depending on which process has huge sized log files being held open.

Is it just me, or is this a big flaw in the way linux works, that it can't figure out how to release file handle for a log so the disk space can be reclaimed? This is happening to me a lot lately.

Here is some output from one of my web servers so you can see what I am seeing...

root@web49:~# df -h | grep /var$
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda8 9.2G 6.1G 2.7G 70% /var
root@web49:~# du -sh /var

Software :: Need To Transfer Huge Number Of Files - Good FTP Program?

Oct 26, 2009

I need to transfer some massive amount of data (2.5terrabyte, many files, directory structure) to a embedded raid-box which has a minimal linux on it (some custom distro from western digital). We tried rsync (version 2.6.7), but it crashes because the filelist is too big for the ram available (fixed in later versions of rsync, but I don't know how to update, it's not debian based and there are no compiler tools). We tried nfs, but the max bandwidth produced is around 1 mb/sec (cpu bound?), so it'd take around 3 weeks this way. Samba has problems with big files (and we have some 20gb files in there).

SCP isn't installed, and would probably also be cpu bound due to encryption I think. So the only option left would be ftp, we're currently trying using ncftp with the command "put -R /path/to/data/" , but it's been running for over an hour, eating up most of the ram, and not using any bandwidth. I think it is still building a file list or something. FTP already worked for a single 20gb file with acceptable bandwidth of about 12mb/sec. Does anyone know a better ftp program (for console) that can start transferring some data or at least display an estimated time for the copy-preperation?

Programming :: Efficient Access Of Huge Files Or Defrag Ext4?

Sep 30, 2010

I need to figure out how to arrange for the fastest-possible read-access of a large or huge memory-mapped file. I'm writing high-speed real-time object-chasing software for a NASA telescope (on earth). This software must detect images of fast moving objects (across arbitrary fields of fixed stars), estimate what direction and speed the object image is traveling (based on the length and direction of a streak on the detection image), then chase after the object while capturing new 4Kx4K pixel images every 2~5 seconds, quickly matching its speed and trajectory, then continue to track and capture images until the object vanishes (below horizon, into earth shadow, etc).

I have created two star "catalogs". Both contain the same 1+ billion stars (and other objects), but one is a "master catalog" that contains all known information about each object (128 bytes per object == 143GB) while the other is a "nightly build" that only contains the information necessary to perform the real-time process (32 bytes per object == 36GB) with object positions precisely updated for precession and proper-motion each night. Almost always the information in the "nightly build" catalog will be sufficient for the high-speed (real-time) processes.

Ubuntu :: Lost Files During Moving Files With Nautlis?

Oct 16, 2010

I was moving a folder using Nautilus from an internal drive to a USB drive when suddenly, the power failed and the system rebooted before the UPS could go into backup. After I booted the PC again, half the files are are in neither of the drives. Do they go into a temporary folder first? There's nothing in /tmp and there's no Lost+Found folder. Is there anyway to get back those files? I'll always copy and delete from now on instead of moving.

Server :: After Moving PHP Files To /var/www They No Longer Are Seen As Hosted Php Files

Feb 25, 2010

I am setting up a Demo website that I am hosting in a Debian Lenny VM, I have installed Apache, mySQL, and PHP5 I know the php server is working because if I place an info php file I can see it in the browser. However, I downloaded phpfusion, as well as phpmyadmin and they are on my desktop, I open a superuser file browser (also added write access to /var/www to everybody and copied the files over as me) and copied over the files. Once in the www folder they are no longer seen as "valid" php files, if I try to access them with iceweasel, IE, Konquerer it asks me if I want to download the file. If I look at the files on my desktop they have different icons. I have attached a screenshot. I can't tell what the difference is, but obviously there is one otherwise the icons wouldn't be different. Does anyone have any idea what's going on here or a way to rectify it?
