I'm not near good enough to open the source of software and fix, change, or even understand anything. I can write very simple bash, python, php, c & c++ programs. php is the only thing I can realistically develop to any usability, and even then it's pretty minimal.
No ntfs, OS is ext4 and micro sd is fat32.
I fixed it but I still don't understand what was happening. Something really weird was going on with the music file that seems to have been causing this in some way. I had the song 'Tie Me Kangaroo down sport by Rolf Harris, album The Hits of Pop & Doo Wop, Vol. 5' downloaded to my music library, I got the song from Amazon's digital music store. Of my two directories that luckybackup/rsync kept getting mixed up were 'Various Artists & Various artists' the kangaroo song was the only song that was physically in the lowercase directory but showed in uppercase as two identical files on my desktop music player (Banshee). When I would right click on each of the two copies and click 'open in folder' one would be in the uppercase directory (Various Artists) and the other would be in the lowercase directory (Various artists), when when I would right click on the one in the lowercase directory and delete the file it would delete both copies? I have no idea! I re-download the song from amazon and this time I edited the meta data and changed the Artists field ...
@G. Yes, and the file system + rsync is not playing ball. Time to try another sync app since a manual copy works. While rsync is open source, it's the OP's choice to dive into the code to find out why. Here, I continue to run into such things and over the years learned to change to other tools when a tool doesn't work for me and I don't feel like opening the source.
@rproffitt Luckybackup invokes rsync, and it can display the rsync command line that it uses. It means that one can use luckybackup as a GUI tool to figure out the relevant command line options for rsync. It means that the question is not luckybackup vs some other tool, but rather rsync vs some other tool.
I reformatted the sd card and ry-synced everything again, same problem. I also manually copied the files from my library to the sd card and it worked fine, go figure. Re-synced again with luckybackup and delete all the files on the destination again :(.
My system didn't recognise iocharset or the shortname options. I have now ran this command on my system -> $ rsync -vrc --delete --ignore-existing --exclude ".*/" /home/me/media/music/ /media/me/MEDIA-SD/ && echo "DONE"
Now the tail end of this command looks like this.

Yes it's mounted, otherwise I wouldn't be able to navigate to the SD card and list it's contents and luckBackup wouldn't even let me run the sync if it's wasn't. And everything should be rwx but just to me sure I just ran chmod -R +rwx ~/media/music/*. Check this out, after running that command I seen the following and the end of my luckybackup log.

Also, make sure the directory and associated files are readable. If they aren't readable, then you can have this problem. I have had similar issues in the past. Make sure the directory also has full rwx permissions.
I've been using rsync and or luckybackup for a while now to sync my desktop's music library to my micro sd card for my digital music player. Today I noticed that my music player wasn't showing one of my albums so I've started investigating and I've found that it's not the music player but is more likely to be rsync, but I don't understand how or why. After syncing I check the sd card manually and sure enough this album is still not beeing synced.
On my computer all of my music is stored at /home/me/media/music/* inside of this last music directory there are two various artists directories, one is uppercase and one is lower case for the word artists. Variouse Artists & Variouse artists. The weird thing is my sd card is only getting the contents of the 'Various artists' directory that's on my desktop but on my sd card the directory is called 'Various Artists' and there is not 'Various artists' directory listed at all on my sd card. So I'm only getting one of the two copies on my sync and it's filled with the contents that the other one is filled with on my computer. In this case I used luckbackup but it uses rysnc, I'll past the code below. Any ideas? Thanks. Oh, and sd card is fat32.
@fo2sh. The code is open source which means open to inspection. I neglected to note the algorithm is on the web too but frequency? Nope, it's just setting the clock from NTP sources to within a few milliseconds. If that is not good enough then you need one of those cellular equipment time sources. My background includes cellular base station design.
I've yet to find anyone ask for more since the goal is the time be set to withing a second. Since system response time can vary under load, it would be silly to think the clock being off by 100 milliseconds to matter. Base stations and the DSP system there would need better than this so they use a station clock (those dedicated highly accurate clocks.)
I really dont care about this but its a question I got from the customer, the NTP vendor wants to know the type of sync used by all clients connected to their NTP server.
Thank you for your answer, yes this question came up only when talking abour radio network element in mobile operators usually, but for some reason they wanted to know which exact sync algorithm is used by us and I tried to check online for an answer but couldn't find anything useful about if Linux is using frequency or phase sync, however yes I came up that the algorithm used by Linux is more near frequency but can't be phase sync.
Since NTP can reduce synchronization offsets to times of the order of a few milliseconds over the public Internet, the ONLY time this question came up is when cellural comms as in base stations were concerned. For all practical considerations NTP is orders of magnitude better than what a human needs.
I am running a software on a Linux machine, I am synchronizing time via default ntpd configurations available in Linux (/etc/ntp.conf).
I am connecting to the customer NTP server.
Now i was requested to tell which synchronization type is used on my machine (Frequency Synchronization/ Time Synchronization or Time-of-day Synchronization)
Now after some googling it seems there is two types for NTP synchronization:
1- Phase Synchronization.
2- Frequency Synchronization.
But how can I decide which of them is used by Linux? I am already connected the customer NTP server and they told that their NTP doesn't support Time Synchronization, so should it be Frequency Synchronization which is used by Linux machines?
The customer is refering to RFC5905 in his questions but I couldn't find anything useful about my question in the RFC.
I never said I was not in favour of upgrading to LibreOffice 5. This is not an issue whether upgrading to the most recent version has bearing. LibreOffice 5 like LibreOffice 4 still requires JRE or JDK to work which I stated from the outset is the challenge.
Side bar: There is indication LO developers will eliminate Java dependencies by moving to Python, but we have not reached that milestone yet.
I upgraded to LibreOffice 5 and am still getting the same message after going through the database wizard:
The connection to the data source "tst4" could
not be established
SQL Status: HY000
The connection to the external data source could
not be established. No SDBC driver was found
for the URL 'sdbc:embedded:hsqldb'.
You do the google research on that error and it comes back that Java is not working with LibreOffice 4 or 5.
I have tried both LibreOffice 4 or 5 with the various flavours of Java JDK or JRE installed on my system and nothing prevails as a solution.
@rproffitt: I looked at the video you suggested. Attached is a screen shot of when I start the database wizard
Doesn't matter if it is LO 4 or 5. Java of some form is required.
At the least, Java is required to use the internal database engine of LO. I am not trying to connect through a JDBC or ODBC to a MySQL database. I would need to resolve this anyway if I was connecting to an external database.
