Any way to send commands to SD card from Linux userspace?
location: linuxexchange.com - date: April 28, 2014
I have a Debian 7.0 Linux 3.2 embedded ARM TI AM335x system. This is a custom board we've developed, but the SD card section at least is the same as the development board. There are some vendor-specific SD card commands I'd like to issue to the card, namely reading some SMART data using CMD56.
Is there any way to send commands to the SD card controller and read the response from userspace?
Cloning a Bootable SD Card from Linux Using dd command
location: linuxexchange.com - date: February 28, 2013
I have a Raspberry Pi with the default, store-bought operating systems on it. I want to wipe the SD card clean so that I can put in a new operating system, but I want to preserve the original OS in a backup disc image. I planned to store it in a .bin file. The SD card has two partitions.
I used the following command to figure out which drive is the SD card.
sudo dmesg | tail
[ 2954.642182] sd 3:0:0:0: [sdb] Attached SCSI removable disk _
[ 2955.149750] EXT4-fs (sdb2): mounted filesystem with ordered data mode. Opts: (null)
I believe this tells me that it is under dev/sdb2, but I also tried dev/sdb, ~/dev/sdb and ~/dev/sdb2. I used the following command to create the image:
dd if="dev/sdb2" of="~/Desktop/Pi Backup/Pi.bin"
But when I try to do this it returns the error message
dd: opening `dev/sdb2': No such file or directory
I'm running Linux Mint, Cinnamon.
Any help is appreciated.
Copying files to/from SD card with Linux partition and Windows PC
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 4, 2010
Hi, I have an SD card that I formatted using my Ubuntu machine to contain one raw Linux partition and one FAT32 partition. Does anyone know of a way to be able to copy files to/from the SD card and my Windows PC? Right now, when I plug the SD card into my Windows PC, the FAT32 partition doesn't appear. When I try to copy files from my Windows PC to the raw Linux partition on the SD ard, I get "bad magic number" errors on the device that I use the SD card with. Is there some utility I can use on my Windows PC to be able to correctly read this SD card? It would be very convenient to have that for travel, etc when I don't have easy access to the Ubuntu machine. Any suggestions would be appreciated - thank you!!
Best way to fix a FAT32 from Linux?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 26, 2005
Here's what happened:
I went out and left windows (98SE) defragmenting C:
when i got home, it said there was some sort of error (only mentioned a number..)
After a while trying to fix it, i quit and reinstalled windows (without formatting)
only after installing drivers and some SW i realized there were lots of corrupted files
Files are usually totally good or totally corrupted, for example, affected mp3s don't even have id3 readable and other mp3 play perfectly from start to end
So i'm looking for any good tips and/or linux software to fix this mess.
Thanks in advance!

Is there any way to convert windows software to Linux?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 24, 2004
Yeah, I have a game called return to castle wolfenstein I really want to get on Linux. It is formatted for windows, and will obviously not run In Linux. Is there ANY software out there that could make the games files to work with Linux? I doubt it from other threads I've read, but I guess I may as well ask.
Most secure way to automatically copy files from Linux to Windows?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 24, 2012
In short: Files with very sensitive data is sent in to our ftp-server via ftps (not our choice, we can't decide here). The ftp-server is running pure-ftpd on OpenSuse 12.1
Final destination is a directory on our Win2008R2 server.
I want to move these files automatically without user interaction.
The ftp-server does nothing but handles ftps/sftp, it's kind of a floodgate, the Win2008-server needs to be highly protected. We do *not* want to run an FTPS-server on the Win-server.
I'm thinking about 3 ways to get the files to Win2008:
1) scp with certificates/keys on both servers
2) scp with password in a file only readable by root
3) Mounting a samba-share on Linux using ipsec
The security issue I'm most concerned about right now is, that if somebody hacks into the ftp-server they shall not be able to reach anything on Windows - except possibly one single directory.
So what do you think, which way is the best - or is there an even better way?
To make the scenario a little c

Is there any service I can get that will run on my Linux OS. Connecting to Wifi hot spots is not doing it for me.
I am not a tech, and I decided to use Linux because it seems to run well.
I'd appreciate any help that all of you other more experienced users could provide!

Any way to recover files deleted from KDE trash?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 27, 2010
Well, I've done the age-old trick: in a fit of ... something, I moved a few files from a directory in my home directory structure to the KDE trash folder, and then deleted them from the trash folder.
About a minute later I regretted this, and now I'd like to see if there's any way to recover the files.
First, are there any good utilities for restoring accidentally deleted files? If so, where would I look for these files? Does the KDE trash config file actually correspond to a physical directory somewhere, or do the files just remain hidden in their original location?
Thanks for any help.
