you don't need to create a script for your problem:

use cp with -p argument!

cp -p your_source_file dest_directory/

QUOTE (grasshopper @ May 20 2003, 02:18 AM)
I tried your suggestion about using dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86 (which I found to be a friendlier utility) .... but it still doesn't work ... arrrg!

Here is the output from xserver:
========
.
.
.
(II) ATI: ATI driver (version 6.3.6) for chipsets: ati, atirga
(II) R128: Driver for ATI Rage Chipsets: ...
(II) Radeon: Driver for ATI Radeon Chipset: ...
(EE) No devices detected.

Fatal server error:
no screens found

X connection to :0.0 broken (explicit kill or server shutdown)

===========

Any suggestions would be SO appreciated!

do you use the testing version?
if not: apt-setup

did you made an apt-get update and apt-get upgrade
apt-get dist-upgrade

to get the lastest xserver version.

hmm I think there are 4 possibilities or more:

- crontab
- screen
- virtual x server vnc
- nohup command running your shedule script

Normally you should use crontab for this kind of job.

could I know which users are you spying on your unix box??

It's one of the reason because I give the advice to use only secured connections.

QUOTE (Iynx @ Apr 26 2003, 06:54 PM)
What's the bash command to make a file on a linux websurver writable by everyone. It's chmod something, but what are the numbers?


-Iynx

chmod 666 your_file

But be carefull, some users could abuse about this right.

To calculate yourself the values:

1 execute
2 read
4 write

so if we want for the user only read and write, I make: 2 + 4 = 6
if we want the same for the group and the others, it will be at the end: 666
if you want also executable attribute, then it's: 777

sure

mount your xp shared directory on a directory like /download

install proftpd

it's one of the ftp server, where you can configure many possibilities.

than you can define in your proftpd.conf file, the download and upload directory for anonymous users.

I don't know if you need seperate upload directories for each user?

Is it possible with the different file systems?[/quote]

yes!

[quote]
no
[/quote]

samba is a windows file sharing over network server, it emulates the ms network share protocol netbios.

[quote]
It's difficult for me to figure out where my files are because there's no type of drive listing that I can find. Where are my other partitions? Where are my pants?
[/quote]

All your drives are in directories or files. In Unix, there is no drive letter as like A:
A: is in linux /dev/fd0 a file with the device type.

You can mount your windows filesystems in a directory, for example:
mkdir windows
mount windows /dev/hda5

then in windows you have your partition /dev/hda5

to find out, which hda is your windows partition,

fdisk

or
fdisk /dev/hda

hda is primary master ide hard disk
hdb is primary slave ide hard disk
hdc is secondary master ide hard disk
hdd is secondary slave ide hard disk
scd0 is first SCSI harddisk

then type p and return

it prints you the detected partitions

But now I have a question to you:
Did you allready read some lines in your Linux manual book?

Try to find out if you have installed all depenend packages for your program.
Don't know what is krb.h but try to read the installation manual, it could be explained
in a file such INSTALL.

try to put /usr/sbin/groupadd in setuid

chmod 4755 /usr/sbin/groupadd

But I think it's very dangerous what you are doing! (very unsecure)

when mozilla has problems to resolve domain names, it's because it can't detect the current IP address for the domain name.
Try: ping my_domain_name.com

if this doesnt work, your problem is, that your domain name doesn't point on your current ip address.
maybe your ip address has changed? you need to update it, at you registrar. (don't know which registrar you have choosen).

check if your PHP runs normally and not in safe mode.
Try also execute /bin/ls before trying with perl scripts.

I'm not sure if I understand your question, but to extract a .tar.bz2 file, you have 2 choices:

1. tar xfvj your_file.tar.bz2

or

2. bunzip2 your_file.tar.bz2
tar xfv your_file.tar.bz2

If you are to lazy to use the command line, try mc (midnight commander)

type in the console: mc

then go on your .zip file, press return
then you can select all your files in your zip files with the "*" key, and you can copy it in another
directory of your choice, exactly as like in nc (norton commander) for dos.

Create a .c file with a text editor, for example emacs,
than compile it with gcc.

for example:

int main()
{
printf("hello!n");
return (0);
}

type:
gcc your_file.c -o your_file

than excute it with:
./your_file

FreeBSD has another kernel than Linux, very difficult to say which kernel are better. I think Linux is currently better in performance than FreeBSD, but it's possible that FreeBSD is more secure. I'm not very sure in what I'm saying (it could finished as big troll).

FreeBSD use another license, the base programs are not GNU, but you can install the GNU fileutils etc.

Your code is not really correct.
You don't check correctly the return values of execv. If execv is successfully, the process will be ended.
If not, exev will return the value -1. Your exit(1) will never be called.

In the man pages are written:
RETURN VALUE
If any of the exec functions returns, an error will have occurred. The return value is -1, and the global
variable errno will be set to indicate the error.

So you should modify your code so:
int pid;

pid = fork();
if (!pid)
{
if (execl("new_process", "new_process", NULL) == -1)
{
perror("execv"); /* make an error message if execl failed! */
exit(1);
}
}
wait(&pid);
exit(0);
}

replace "new_process" by something like, "/bin/ls"
don't use execv, use excel, because you need to give your called program at least one argument: The program name.

You can use execv if you give as argument a char ** table with one entry. Some programs could work without this argument, but it's recommended to do the things correctly, if you don't like to debug some hours for some little C code. :-)
