Example: FileA: Code: created test1 created test2 created test3 created test4 FileB: Code: same test1 same test2 created test5 If I execute command: Code: grep -Fvf FileB FileA Since the first word in the lines are different, the output from the command is: Code: created test1 created test2 created test3 created test4 The results I would like would be: Code: created test3 created test4 Any way to ignore the first word in each line in the file being compared to, in this example FileA?

  • Issue#177375: Linux - Cert based SSH access and scripts still prompting for a password

    Hi I've set up cert based SSH access between two Ubuntu 14 LTS boxes. This works fine. On BoxB I have a script that wants to Rscript files from BoxA to BoxB using a user called rsyncuser. This use can access BoxA from BoxB using cert based SSH without being prompted for a password (this I can test). However when I run my script it immediately asks me for the password to ssh in to BoxA. Clearly this isn't great as the script stops. To cover myself, I've also enabled cert based SSH for every user involved, the user running the script, the user mentioned in the rsync command line, and also both as sudo. Any ideas what I've missed? The rsync command is below, along with the commands I've used to enable cert-based ssh (which I've used before *** rsync -arv -e "ssh" --exclude-from=/var/www/rsync_excludes.txt [email protected]:/ / *** cert-less ssh created using *** ssh-keygen ssh-copy-id -i ***

    I wanted to read the battery power draw in watts I have read numerous webpages and settled on adding the script to sudoers. So I created a file, "panel", in /etc/sudoers.d which reads Cmnd_Alias PANEL = /usr/local/bin/ ALL ALL = (ALL) NOPASSWD:PANEL Defaults!PANEL !requiretty I have tried a few variations of the above, this is the current one. The script has a few lines like AMPS=$(cat /sys/class/power_supply/BAT0/current_now) Before I had sudo cat, and it worked, but only if I entered my password. Obviously I need to get rid of the password requirement for genmon. So I just removed the sudo command from the script but now it just returns 0. I've obviously stepped into a hole somewhere but I can't find the answer. Anyone got any ideas???? Never mind I'm an idiot. It works I just had the power plugged in. How do I delete this?
