Thanks a lot for your reply. Pero como digo, nada grave. If not, how can I specify the relative path, considering that my backups need to begin in the directory just above the directory containing my backup shell script? See comment for more info — You are receiving this because you were mentioned. A simple backup command with the least arguments possible that still created a viable backup. Disappointing to say the least.
Linux is a family of open source Unix-like operating systems based on the Linux kernel. Stale issues rot after an additional 30d of inactivity and eventually close. Also the functionality works fine, it's just the error which comes which is kinda confusing. I found this thread after setting up a backup script that would email on a non-zero exit status from tar. This is the source of your sderr messages. But, the existing value in the xml contain leading spaces and I tried to remove that with different sed commands but all in vain. If not then there could be other issues.
It should probably also be noted that tar archives store hard links in a similar manner to symlinks -- the second and further links actually point to the first by its path not by inode , which is why the second message is displayed. Y discrepo de mis compañeros en que no creo que tengas que abrir un caso de soporte para eso, porque es un comportamiento normal. Apart from the error messages the results will be identical. There are a number of ways to accomplish this, many of which have already been hinted at in this question, some of which have not. Linux may be freely modified and redistributed. Thanks in advance for any tips! And I believe that the c must be the first parameter.
After doing that I realized where I went wrong. Try the --xform option, which uses a sed-like replace expression. So, please let me know if you still not sure what I am trying to accomplish. Here are some clarifications about my command. My first try at this, after looking up the documentation, still failed, and I had no idea why.
And this is anwered in multiple places on stackoverflow, and Issues go stale after 90d of inactivity. It was always a stupid requirement, and the command options without the dash was one of those dumb exceptions to an almost universally consistent Unix command line syntax. Yes, you could use -P. Most of the time this is not what a user wants, simply because most of them don't read the manual until they need to ain't nobody got time for that. Unix development starting in the 1970s by legendary Bell Labs programmers Ken Thompson, Dennis Ritchie, and others. I agree completely and have felt that way since my first Linux install.
This would be pretty annoying to do manually every day so I have a cron job run the backup script each day. We were all beginners in the beginning. With bash, this is done with : dotglob If set, bash includes filenames beginning with a '. This does the same thing as a normal tar create command, but no stripping is needed: tar fcz bkup. Tar is just smart enough to warn you of what it is doing and does the correct thing anyway.
. It's a security feature, so that if you unpack the tarball, you can be sure that all files will reside in the target directory and subdirectories, instead of being scattered all over the system and possibly overwriting critical files. If you have questions or suggestions related to my behavior, please file an issue against the repository. In response to : It's not a bug, may be missing parameter -C in tar. Linux distributions include the Linux kernel, system software and libraries. If you have questions or suggestions related to my behavior, please file an issue against the repository. Herman Coincido con Herman, ese error no es tal error, es simplemente un warning del tar que se utiliza para agregar todos los archivos de backup en un unico archivo.
This is not quite correct. It gives you more flexibility about where to restore files. This is my attempt to compile them all with references and show examples for easy reading, allowing the reader to pick and choose one to fit his or her needs. Anyone on the planet may create a Linux distribution for any purpose. No dot-slash but note the missing root-level. The c does not have to be first, it can be anywhere with either syntax , though there may be some versions of tar the require the command to be first? So, it would be wise to, at least, expand your answer, warning people not to do this unless they are absolutely sure they understand what's the effect of it. The relative path makes this possible.
Therefore that is the wrong place for the P parameter. How to reproduce it as minimally and precisely as possible : see repro path above Anything else we need to know? Especially being accepted as an answer. The Linux kernel is an operating system kernel first released by Linus Torvalds on 17 September 1991. Sign up for a free GitHub account to open an issue and contact its maintainers and the community. The file paths in a tar archive are stored as relative paths for a good reason. Hi All, I have a vexing issue with leading spaces in file names.
Sorry, I don't speak Spanish. You may want to restore files into a temporary location. Reply to this email directly, view it on GitHub , or mute the thread. Indeed, this used to be the case, and I'm no longer sure what the rules are for various tars. Since you can't group all of the options together, dashes are needed. If you have two options that take arguments, then you need to use the dash. Basically, we're moving tons of data from our ancient afp file share to Box.
