recursively setting permissions

Posted 05-30-2011 at 07:26 AM by neonsignal

The chmod itself can be used recursively to set the permissions on a directory and the subtree of that directory:
Code:
chmod -R u=rwX,go=rX directory
the 'X' flag only sets execute permissions if the node is a directory or already has execute access.

Alternatively, find can be used to give a little more control over the changes. For example, sometimes it is useful to clear all the execute bits after data files have been transferred from a FAT32 system....

The story goes like this;

There will be DebConf 11 in Banja Luka (Bosnia and Herzegovina) from 24th to 30th July 2011. It's actually very close to where I live, but the fact is that economic situation in my country is bad, lot of people are out of work or not being paid for their work, etc. Basically, I wasn't sure will I be able to pay for whatever is necessary to be at DebConf 11 by myself, so I decided to apply for sponsored registration which is defined as follows; [QUOTE][B]Sponsored...

Creating a patch . . .

Posted 05-28-2011 at 01:03 PM by Lufbery (The Slacker's Blog)

Hi all,

I thought I'd share a procedure for making patches that I learned.

Starting with information from a mailing list or newsgroup for a patch, copy the relevant information to a text file and give it a descriptive name with a .patch suffix.
  1. tar -xf file.tar.bz2
  2. mv file file.orig
  3. tar -xf file.tar.bz2
  4. cd file
  5. patch -Np1 ../file.patch # Applies patch from newsgroup or other source with offsets
  6. cd ..
  7. diff -Naur file.orig file > file.new.patch
