Mine.

Code: Select all

guest@porteus:~$ dmesg -V
dmesg from util-linux 2.21.2
guest@porteus:~$ which dmesg
/bin/dmesg
guest@porteus:~$ file /bin/dmesg
/bin/dmesg: ELF 64-bit LSB  executable, x86-64, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked (uses shared libs), stripped
guest@porteus:~$

Seems to have been left behind at some stage. :Search:

I should note that my version is from Porteus 3.0.1 not 3.2. :oops:


Since I have your attention, I have another strange bit of code I don't undestsand.

Code: Select all

mkdir -p /tmp/mod

cp -a --parents /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/* /tmp/mod/
cp -a --parents /etc/localtime                           /tmp/mod/
cp -a --parents /home/guest/.config/razor/*autosuspend*  /tmp/mod/
   
cp -a --parents /home/guest/*.*                          /tmp/mod/

du -h /tmp/mod/
Seems simple enough and works. But if I use my file manager, SpaceFM, to view the contents I can see everything except the contents of the /tmp/mod/home/guest directory!! Even if I config the file manager to display Hidden files. The du -h command shows space used and ls /tmp/mod/home/guest/ shows reams of files, .sh, .txt, .ico, etc. So what are your thoughts on this??

Did part of this:

Code: Select all

guest@porteus:~$ mkdir /tmp/mod
guest@porteus:~$ cp -a --parents /home/guest/.config  /tmp/mod/
No problem with Nemo after toggling for hidden files. Gave up SpaceFM quite a while back, after encountering problems. Also found it too complicated for my liking.

And today everything displays as it should. :%)

As they say, all's well that ends well.
