I am trying to tar a directory structure. but unable to do due to a symbolic link. Please help
indomt@behpux $ tar -cvf test.tar /home/indomt
a /home/indomt symbolic link to /dxdv/03/ap1dm1
Can someone help create a symbolic link where I append my own string to the name of the link?
I have my code mounted as an sshfs in my home directory, but the hierarchy is difficult to remember, so I created a symlink in my home directory leading to that directory.
I'm thinking no...
Sir I Installed NS-2.34 on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, it gives follwing errors:
ln: failed to create symbolic link `ns': File exists
ln: failed to create symbolic link `nam': File exists
Please compile your xgraph separately.
I simulated all cases in a test folder:
a b c/ d@ e@ f@
/tmp/test# file *
d: symbolic link to `c'
e: symbolic link to `a'
f: broken symbolic link to `nofile'
Now I can check, if a file exists and is a symbolic link with -L
for file in *; do
if [[ -L "$file" ]]; then echo "$file is a symlink"; else echo "$file is not a symlink"; fi
I am trying to make symbolic link:
ln -s /home/application /application
where /home/application is NFS mounted file. I got follwing error:
ln: creating symbolic link `application': No such file or directory even in su mode.
I created this file structure:
when I run this command:
ln -s test/src test/firefox
I would expect a symbolic link test/firefox/src to be created pointing to test/src, however I get this error instead:
-bash: cd: src: Too many levels of symbolic links
What am I doing wrong? Can you not create a symbolic link to one folder which is stored in a sibling of that folder?
For my embedded linux (TI AM335x) board, I have a SDK containing subfolders sysroot and filesystem. E.g.
I have currently created a symbolic link in var/www/html/lenova/ . It is currently linked to "assets"
when I execute
this is what gets displayed
assets -> ../../../assets
I need to create another link to assets in a different folder var/www/html/dell.
