Re: help with 'find' command

Hmm - now I am stumped. I'll probably play with this some more later today; perhaps it's a permission problem of some sort. I'll try creating the directory manually to see what happens. EDIT1: OK - I am 'suspicioning' that I may have to use rsync to do the file copying because I am trying to create ...

Re: help with 'find' command

Agreed - It doesn't exist; the goal is to create it (and it's subs as necessary). In my example i used "cp", but I had previously also tried with 'rsync' and various switches. All baulk at that reference to a 'current directory' passed by find in the second "{} - and I don't blame them. My question ...

help with 'find' command

OK, I am driving myself crazy trying to learn enough about 'find' to get done what I wish - I am so close 'I can taste it'! I have a shared folder on my server containing many hundreds of family photos, mostly jpg's, but also littered with HUGE movies (.mov), and other large type files. I've promise...

Re: Attacker IPs

For the most part "they" are bots that bang-away at IPs. They don't have yours until they get to it and your machine responds - then they have it.

I use fail2ban as I must use passwords, with retrys set really low. It's a little bit to set up but works nicely.

Re: -bash: ./configure: No such file or directory

THEN TUTORIAL IM FOLLOWING MIGHT BE LYING,,
Not really; rather a generic method for many varied versions of Linux. In the case of CentOS however, try the much easier method that TrevorH mentioned. You'll save yourself a lot of work.

Re: How to change the Gnome/Nautilus default text editor?

Have you tried "Properties" when you right click - then 'Open with' tab, and set as default ?

EDIT:
By the way (FYI), you'll be changing the default editor for all files of that type, not just that one file. In your case, I suspect that's what you want.

Re: not logging invalid usernames in audit.log

audit is not the only log that records failed login attempts.

Perhaps the "require-ers" would like a scripted report derived from the audit.log that didn't contain the failed attempts? What is it that they actually want to see?

Re: Attemping to install CentOS7 from usb but cannot

After an hour trying to get a working USB key, I surmised that the of= must be the /dev/{device} and NOT the path to the mounted point!!! In my case it was sdb1 - so my command was dd if=CentOS-7-x86_64-DVD-1804.iso of=/def/sdb (just drop the "1" and commit the whole stick). I found that out by runn...

Re: Can't echo to file even as root.

I _knew_ that a while back but forgot it was one of those 'dynamic' directories!! Grr. Thanks.
