Re: [Raspberry_Pi_4-Ham_RADIO] Re: DXSpider on the pi
Were you able to get DXSpider to run using v1.05 of the instructions?

As I understand it, the contents of spider.new are copied to /spider by this line, and the next line in the procedure removes the directory spider.new.
If I am right, then this little glimmer of understanding is clear progress for me!!
Not sure what a left field bleacher is, but it sounds painful!

- the easiest way to do this that I know of is using a GUI file manager, 2nd way is using the file
manager in webmin.
if you want to do it from the command line then try this:
you could try reading the manual on the copy command: man cp
or just try this:
cp -R * /spider
this might also work: cp -R .. /spider
that will copy all files without a "." in them.
if there are files with periods in the filenames, you might have to run it again with *.*
the switch [-R | -r | --recursive] should copy the sub-directories recursively.

I have had two attempts, the second one after re-formatting and re imaging my SD, but both attempts failed at "CP -a /home/sysop/spider.new/ /spider" (my quote marks) with the error message 'cannot overwrite non-directory /spider with directory /home/sysop/spider.new/'
