comment Copy just permissions and ownership from one tar file to another
I could do that but on untarring any of the backups, the ownership is lost instantly because the users and groups don't exist on my computer, they exist on my phone. This isn't possible to do on the phone as well, it doesn't have getfacl and setfacl

comment Should the mysql user have access to /var/lib/mysql?
The directory /var/lib/mysql should be owned by user mysql with permissions 700. Atleast thats how it is on my box. Also all the files inside are owned by mysql with 700 permissions. I can execute ls fine on my computer. Don't know why it didn't work for you. What do you see when you do sudo ls -la /var/lib/mysql? Is owner mysql and perms 700?

comment How to move the existing mount point from /usr/local to /usr in Ubuntu 11.04?
Also moving between different filesystem takes lot of times compared to moving within same filesystem. So mkdir /media/usr/local && mv /media/usr/* /media/usr/local/, mv /media/root/usr/* /media/usr/ would be a better option. No?

/dev/pv/usr in while other files that should be under /usr are now on /dev/pv/usr should be /dev/pv/root/usr

No, don't kill them. Not sure what's wrong. You should system logs for more details.

I've always used \{\} thinking it would cause a bash expansion. Why doesn't bash expand {} in this case?
