What is making this du command error with invalid options?
location: linuxexchange.com - date: October 4, 2014
To get a breakdown of disk usage, always use
du -m -h -s * -c | sort -h
It returns a list like this:
But in this one branch of directories, I get this:
du: invalid option -- 'e'
du: invalid option -- 'd'
du: invalid option -- 'i'
du: invalid option -- 't'
du: invalid option -- '4'
du: invalid option -- '.'
du: invalid option -- 'p'
du: invalid option -- 'p'
It looks like it is telling me to edit 4.pp

I've found the following bash command in some source code.

What does it exactly mean?
As far as I know, it redirects those log to the syslog.
However, What is 3>&1?
I have never seen a file descriptor of 3 before.

host command error with RedHat 7.2
- date: April 19, 2002
Hey sup everybody.
Alright so I just got RedHat 7.2 (Enigma) on my system and it's running smoothly. BUT I've figured out a first problem:
I do need the 'host' command very often so after trying it in the shell I've noticed some weird error. I definitely can't figure out why this is happening. Moreover it's very strange because on my RedHat 7.0 installation I had on this machine before this command was running -as expected- without any problems. Here's a cut from the shell:
scarface]$ host -l domain.com
Host domain.com. not found: 5(REFUSED)
; Transfer failed.
Ain't that strange?!
Please help me ppls...!!
Excluding hidden files from du command output with exclude, grep v or sed
location: linuxexchange.com - date: March 29, 2011
I'm trying to check with Disk Usage tool how big are my home directory folders but it also prints out folders and files starting with dot.
I can't seem to filter them out.
du -h --exclude="?"
du -h | grep -v "?"
du -h | grep -ve "?"
du -h | sed "?"
Thanks in advance.
Thank you SiegeX for you answer.
du -h --max-depth=1 | grep -v "./\\."
Since dot matches any character we have to prefix it with double backslash since its also a special character.

What causes this graphical error in emacs with linummode on OS X?
location: linuxexchange.com - date: January 1, 1970
I get this graphical error with linum-mode in my Emacs. I tried upgrading from 23 to 24 (via git) and I've tried both with various supplied binaries online and with my home-compiled version. What I'm really interested in is where to start diagnosing the problem.
The problem goes away if I scroll the torn line numbers off screen and back in.
Error splicing file:file too large. WHAT is this weird error?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 11, 2011
I have a portable drive where I save disk images. I successfully copied two Ubuntu disk images to this drive but get this error when trying to copy the Windows disk image folder:
Why is it talking about splicing it when I'm not trying to splice anything. I am trying to copy the folder from the desktop to this drive.
It's also not too big. The drive has 250GB of space and the folder is only 20GB.
Also note: I did not get this before when the portable drive was NTFS. But then I formatted it to FAT32 and get this same error on the same folder every time.
What's going on??
