Anyone used ssh from Windows to Linux and know much about perms? The problem I am having is writing to a network folder. My process was failing on file creation so I tried cp from the command line. The strange thing is the first try creates the file but leaves it empty and fails. If I try again with the empty file already there it is then able to write to it. Any ideas what might cause an issue like that?

Are you trying to copy the file from a Windows machine to a disparate Linux machine (VM or otherwise)? In that case, I'm guessing you're using something like pscp to do the copy?

have you tried making the path that you're writing to completely open in terms of permissions? e.g. chmod 777 /path/to/folder - it's possible that the issue could be coming from permissions on the folders that are parents to your target directory.

Have you messed around with the setuid/setgid bits?

This isn't an NFS share you're writing to, is it?

What kind of process do you have that's writing to this location? Is it a program? PHP? Python or something? Bash script set up as a cron job? For some reason, I remember having an issue very similar to this, with a PHP program doing a SFTP transfer using PHPSECLIB - not sure if it's at all related (I think it was a permissions issue), but if you haven't figured it out by now, I'll try to dig through my notes for ya. Let me know.

I had a thread about this somewhere but my quick lazy search hasn't turned it up, and like Homer says, the lesson is, never try.

So anyway, Plankton has been helping me to try to pick the best laptop I can, and I've been driving him nuts I'm sure (talk about "Screaming at an Empty Canvas", huh?) so I'm appealing to you guys.

Ideally, opinions from anyone who has had, or has, a laptop, the purchase of which they either regretted or did not, would be most welcome. Every brand I research I get good and bad (often really threatening/warningly bad) reviews, and I don't know what to do.

So it's basically this: do you, have you, any preference for, or do you or have you owned a Dell, HP, Acer, Asus or Lenovo laptop? I'm not asking for specs, as I know what I want and can afford. It's more about the reliability. I know nobody can stop your laptop from having problems and nobody can predict if it's going to give you hassle or anything, but stories or advice from those who have, or have had, any of the above brands (or others) and how it worked/has worked out would be helpful.

Thanks.
TH

They're only skin-deep though. Besides, if I were to get a Banana I'd have to learn a whole new way of computing, and I'm too old and crotchety to do that at my time of life. My Windows gives me regular updates whether I wants 'em or not, and that's jest how I likes it!

My Windows updates me when the sun goes down, and then up again, every single day.

CNBC
Jul 10, 2021


Microsoft Windows debuted in 1985 and for the past two decades it has been the dominant PC operating system worldwide. In 2020, Windows had almost 83% market share by unit shipments, while Google Chrome OS had 10% and Apple’s Mac OS had 7%, according to Gartner.
From solitaire to its iconic start button and start up sounds, productivity apps, gaming and corporate computing, Windows changed the way we use computers. The legendary Windows 95 helped propel the company to dominate the market in personal computing. Microsoft has introduced many versions of Windows since its inception with some more memorable than others. It’s competed with IBM, Apple, and Google for market space. According to Microsoft, there are more than 1.3 billion devices running Windows 10 worldwide on a monthly basis.
Today, Windows only makes up 14% of Microsoft’s business but remains a critical part of it. The company just announced the latest version Windows 11.
CNBC spoke with former Microsoft employees including Terry Myerson, Michael Cherry, Brad Silverberg and Tandy Trower to get a look back at over three decades of Windows.
