You could use something like that: file -F' ' --mime-type * | awk '$2 ~ /text\/plain/{print $1}' | xargs chmod 644 This changes all permissions to 644 if a file has the mime-type text/plain. Just replace the part in the awk body to whatever mime-type you wish. See /etc/mime.types for all available ones. Explanation: The -F' ' flag causes file to use a ...

You're missing out on a auto eth5 line above iface eth5 inet static. Check that all other interface management processes aren't using the interface. A common mistake is to still have a dhclient process (DHCPd client) running when the interface was set to DHCP before. Verify using for example with pgrep -l "(NetworkManager|dhclient)". In general, learn to ...

Here's my suggestion: isoinfo -d -i foobar.iso (get the Volume Size and Block Size) dd if=foobar.iso bs=2048 count=344064 of=/dev/sda (or whatever the usb path is) The bs and count is probably optional, but it's better to be safe.

As can be seen from What is the CVE-2014-6271 bash vulnerability (Shellshock) and how do I fix it?, the patched version for 14.04 is 4.3-7ubuntu1.4, whereas the 14.04.1 image contains 4.3-6ubuntu1. Once released, an ISO is never changed. So an installation image will contain the fix when 14.04.2 is released.

You're not running 14.04 as you indicated, but you're actually running 12.04. All the output you show support this scenario. Therefore, the proposed upgrade to 12.10 is valid. However, I recommend not to run this. Once on 12.10 you'll have to go through the long process of 12.10 → 13.04 → 13.10 → 14.04 to reach a supported release. LTS → LTS+1 upgrade path ...

The answer is almost certainly yes. If you want to be really certain, you can wipe the whole drive from the first sector to the last.
