Heard of Stack Exchange through a friend, but just recently started using it for some projects I was thinking of undertaking!

comment Searching a file & excluding lines with a specified string
@Kevin Is there a way to use this same thing and exclude two different lines of information? (Eg. exclude two sets of repeated information from the same log file. Such as grep -v 'repeat-info' && 'more-repeated-info' file.log).

@Kevin Thank you for the help! I was not aware one of the options for grep was to inverse the command.

Had to be the CF card, as I purchased another one from Transcend and it installed the first try. Thanks for the assistance @Steven Monday!

comment Is more or find more resource intensive in finding the number of times an item lists in a file?
Thanks @Huygens! I don't believe any of the files I was searching through had spaces in the name (simply because files with spaces almost always cause some sort of issue), but thank you for the input! The xargs -P 4 is what will create 4 separate instances of the command to run?

This is good to know as well! The way I was initially taught to search through files was by using more and piping in grep. I've never used grep as much of a standalone command.

Thank you for the information! I never really knew the difference from commands such as more and cat, so this is very helpful.

@manatwork Yes, I ran one command in the same directory on the same files, then I ran the other right after it finished.

comment Do I need to format a CF before installing Linux?
So I picked up a card reader and tried to access the CF card, and I'm no CF expert... but it didn't seem to work properly, imho. My PC detected it, and it told me I need to format the new drive before I can use it, but when I try to format it, it cannot detect the drive size and then it says it cannot format the drive when I try. I am thinking perhaps this CF card is faulty?

Thank you very much for the assistance! I will definitely pick up a separate card reader to test out the CF card and post back here with the success/failure of that.
