A server stack is the collection of software that forms the operational infrastructure on a given machine. In a computing context, a stack is an ordered pile. A server stack is one type of solution stack — an ordered selection of software that makes it possible to complete a particular task. Like in this post about Linux bin folder is broken [closed] was one problem in server stack that need for a solution. Below are some tips in manage your linux server when you find problem about linux, , , , .
by mistake i accidentally broke my system , i installed 7zp with wine , i went to my media folder, my mouse struggled and i accidentally dragged a folder named with my user name into the main directory , i don´t know where the folder was supposed to be . the data inside that folder looked like the data from the ´´bin´´ folder. then i saw, that the bin folder was empty. i copied the data from the folder with my user name into the bin folder. I rebooted my system and received many error messages with ´´no permissions and fails´
After those messages it booted and i see a window called: Linux mint 20.1 Ulyssa (my user name)
(my user name) login : when i try to login, the messages is non stop popping up, i can only go in the grup terminal or what its called
,what should i do?
As @Zoredache has recommended, I think you should backup and reinstall linux on your PC.
It is possible to boot in to a live cd and fix the problems which you would probably learn a lot from! But if you’re not interested in doing it for the knowlege it simply isn’t worth the time… And we don’t even know what folders and files got moved, or where they got moved to…
If you however would like to fix it the manual way. The easiest way would probalby be to look into a fresh copy of your distro and go through all the files and folders there and compare it with what you have on your current PC. This way you might be able to see what has been moved and where it got moved to. So you then can reverse the action. It might go fast or it might go slow, depending on how much you know about what you might have moved etc.
But listing all the files (excluding my home folder) that i have on my workstation atm i got over
1 250 000 files. And you don’t want to go over all of them by hand… So if you want/need to go through them all, you would probably have to write some script to compare all the folders and files on your pc with the ones on the fresh copy to see if you can find where the files went.
