@StéphaneChazelas That site is not on the list of sites we can move stuff to, though.

This question appears to be off-topic because it is about a smartphone/tablet, not about Unix/Linux

comment How to update linux “locate” cache
@JohnHunt If you look up a little, you'll see that the question was migrated from ServerFault about ten hourse after I'd posted that comment.

comment How to prevent `mv` from moving a collection of files into a single regular one?
@G-Man Good points, both of them. I never even thought of shopt -s globstar, thanks for mentioning it!

The first one looks at the root directory of the server (/), the second only at /etc/main. Neither of them will show the subdirectories under /etc/main; in order to do that, you need to add a *. You can either go to /etc/main and write du -s * | sort -nr or you can write du -s /etc/main/* |sort -nr in order to get the file sizes of each subdirectory.

@NageshwaranM Those commands look very strange to me, presumably due to markdown formatting... Could you rewrite them, using the code markes (`) around the commands?

You could probably build something combining find and mv, e.g. find /music -type d -exec mv {}/*90.mp3 targetdir\; - but now I feel a bit like I'm overcomplicating it, and simply using -i or -t is more efficient

@syntaxerror Very true - I meant this as an example of how mv behaves, not as a criticism of your choice of tools.

@Hackaholic If you're on an OS where du supports that... FreeBSD does, as does SuSE, but e.g. RHEL doesn't. I don't have Solaris or HP-UX available for testing, but my memory is that they don't. That's why I used -s - it's more portable.

comment Webserver establishing new outgoing connections from port 443
@QuestionOverflow I'm sorry, I don't have the best answer for this. But I'd have a look at pretty much everything that has the word timeout without udp or icmp... You could also post a new question specifically about how to configure conntrack; if you do, please include your current config and hopefully someone will be able to help you.

comment search a command in PATH with the same name of the script
@eadmaster At some point you really have to step up and take responsibility for setting up your environment the way you want to. Multiple entries are easy to deal with; man sed will tell you how to fix it. Symlinks - less easy, still possible. But, as I said from the start, if you want your $PATH to look a particular way, then you need to set it yourself (preferably in your profile/.bashrc), and then simply use common sense.

@eadmaster Edited in a fix for that.

@Gilles I think one of us has misunderstood the problem, because that comment does not make sense to me from how the question was phrased.

comment search a command in PATH with the same name of the script
@eadmaster Code snippet added. (note that I used { as the separator because it gets boring writing a \ before each / in the sed command...)

comment search a command in PATH with the same name of the script
The search order is standardized. Since you can set your own path, you can set it so that $HOME/bin is last. Or you can put these particular scripts in a different directory (e.g. $HOME/scripts) and add that directory last to your path.

Great that you found the solution! It would be very much appreciated if you could take a few moments to write it into an answer that you can accept and I can upvote too... (There might be a timelimit before you can do this since you're a new user, but it would be really helpful for others if you could hang around and do that!)
