I suspect you just don't have access to them from the user that is running this script. Look at the file ownerships: $ ls -l /var/log/{dmesg,syslog,message} ls: cannot access /var/log/message: No such file or directory -rw-r----- 1 root adm 86384 Mar 9 11:12 /var/log/dmesg -rw-r----- 1 syslog adm 18553 Mar 25 13:25 /var/log/syslog You could read from ...

You most probably don't have read permissions for /var/log/{dmesg,syslog,message}. So even though you have the files created on your destkop, they will be empty, since nothing was read but an attempt to write was made to a file(the one created on your desktop). So you have two options: Get read permissions for /var/log/{dmesg,syslog,message} as follows: ...

Your problem is the following lines of your script : echo ' ' > /var/log/dmesg echo ' ' > /var/log/syslog echo ' ' > /var/log/message Unsurprisingly, since those are precisely lines 7,8 and 9 which are the ones that bash is complaining about. These commands are attempting to delete the contents of those 3 log files in /var/log but since they are ...

If you're not changing architecture (32-bit to 64-bit or vice versa) you can just back up /var/cache/apt/archives, restore it to the new machine and run sudo apt-get update That'll get all the applications migrated so you don't have to download them but it won't install them for you. Better yet, try this- dpkg --get-selections > ...

To answer your first question: yes, you would simply restore the /home folder from the backup location and you're done. After a fresh install, it's OK to restore the backup files over any new files that may have been created. However, you will need to manually reinstall any (non-standard) applications that were installed on your old disk. There are ways to ...

USB Backup Drive does not show up complete after a successful dd backup Don't do that, especially with lvm; use a proper backup method instead. By copying the whole thing bit for bit, you now have two volumes that have the same UUID, and this makes them difficult or impossible to differentiate. In the case of LVM, this may cause the system to ...

Note that you will likely need to rename the database file when you port it, as Chrome auto-assigns a numeric value upon SB install. Immediately after re-installing SB, take note of the name of the database file created. Shut down Chrome and move, rename, or delete the file. Copy in your original database file and rename it to match the noted name.

You can create reflinks in a backup directory to everything under /home/user, which is very similar to what a snapshot is. For example you could run something like cp -rax --reflink /home/user /backup/home/user. (Both /home/user and /backup/home/user need to be on the same btrfs volume.) This will copy the directory structure and the inodes (meta-data), but ...

After you click that, a sidebar would appear on the left side. It will list software in the local computer and the list will be uploaded in the Ubuntu One cloud. See the Last sync at the bottom ...
