how can i upload 2gb files in opensuse to rapidshare

rm isnt woking and ru allowed just 200mgb…

Hash: SHA1

man split

It will let you split up the file into smaller pieces which can then be

Good luck.

wow what a question…who knows what rapidshare is?
rm i know, you use it to REMOVE (aka delete) files or directories (not
send anything to anywhere)

man ru gives me no hint what is allowed…

try asking while giving more info on what it is you want to do, and
what rm and ru you are talking about, please…


Rapidshare is a online file sharing facility in case you are wondering. It can be used for free or you can subscribe. Free users are limited in various ways (i.e. Amount o simultanious downloads, waiting periods etc.) Try RapidShare: 1-CLICK Web hosting - Easy Filehosting if you want to upload a file. It will be deleted after some time of non-activity though but this is noted.

Also lookup hotfile. They have become very popular. I used Rapidshare to upload files on more than one occasions. They are based in Switzerland if I remember correctly and their network is very stable.

Also for Uploading files the Linux “split” for splitting a file and “cat” for joining it back together will do or if it is more than one file or not very compact (Compressed I mean), my favourite archiver is rar for linux which can be downloaded from WinRAR archiver, a powerful tool to process RAR and ZIP files (It is not opensource but I would say it is probably the best archiver available). You can however also use tar, gzip etc. Linux comes with many such tools. I like rar because it has never let me down (Very robust, never experienced any strange symptoms like file corruption), has a very good compression, comes in WinRAR for Windows which in my opinion beats all other archivers Windows has to offer. I don’t think it suppers SMP (Semetric Multiprocessing in Linux yet) which means it might be a bit on the slow side compressing files under Linux (Especially with high compression) as it can only use one threat and is a Microsoft program. It also supports recovery records, recursive folder backups, encryption of content, file slitting to any conceivable size which does not have to be fixed, if your media is full, you can replace it and it will rsume arviving with the next volume etc. Features are quite nice. Some say 7ZIP will do a better job. I have tried 7zip and did not achieve the rsults other are bosting abount and I am not so confident about 7zip. I have used WinRAR and RAR for many years (10-15) and with bot the rar version for Windows and Linux are very easy to implement in scripts (be it bash or .bat). Compined with Windows Scheduler or crontab, you have a very reliable solution for backups with good compression + you can have it create a file name mask using date and time syntax.

Also if you check out file sharing facilities like Rapidshare, you will find most of the stuff come in rar format. I have integrated RAR into KDE using file associations which means if I right click on a file, I can have RAR compress the file for me for instance. You can also combine this with bash scripts etc. I find Linux archiving GUI tools still to be a bit lacking or not doing exacly what I want. I am thinking of writing a proper frontent with QT next year (Something like WinRAR for Linux). Implementing what I want through KDE file asociations means I am only two clicks away from compressing a file or uncompressing it etc. in a way that is more appropriate to my needs. Implementing a frontend would allow to make very specific changes but the principle remains the same. RAR is also very accurate in dedecting errors and can be self healing with recovery records. If RAR does not complain about unpacking a file, your or virtually guranteed of no corruption! If a archive is damaged beyond repair, at least you can tel it to extract the damaged file and other files are also ok unless also damaged. Personally I have ever had a corruption and I have archived quite a few terrabytes in my lifetime with RAR. Only problem ever was with damaged DVD’s which meant that using special software (Can’t remember what I used at that ocasion but I suspect ddrescue.) I could retrieve all the data that was ok plus the damaged file which was however of of no value to me. I find that writing DVD’s at 4 speed, even if my media supports up to 18 and my writer up to 22x is still the best in terms of reliability. I have had numerous Verbatim DVDs fail because somehow they don’t like the high speeds. As I have 3 writers, I burn to all 3 at the same time at 4x which is basically 4 * 1.3MB / sec which is about 15MB / sec. which suites my requirements fine and at these speeds I have very few DVDs fail if any. DVD failure in my opinion is proportional to the brand you use and the speed you write at as well as DVD writer. So far, LG has had the fewest problems from all the DVD writers I ever used and I used numerous like Philips, HP, Sony, AOPEN etc.). Certain models do however have more problems than others but Firmware upgrades do help for media compatibility issues etc.

Hope this helps!It is a bit more than what was asked but perhaps usefull:)

Just forgot to mention, if using split, please do use something like md5sum. md5sum is a computer program that calculates and verifies 128-bit MD5 hashes. That way the recipient knows his file is ok or not. If you use rar, that might be a bit overkill as rar or WinRAR will tell you wish archive is damaged.

thanks all for help.
