Ubuntu: find symlink to a known file /etc/init.d/ portmap



Question:

I'm looking for the /etc/rc.X/ softlink to /etc/init.d/portmap.

Does anyone know where portmap is called?

How can I find all symlinks to a file?

Chris


Solution:1

You can use find with the -l option for this.

sudo find / -mount -lname {/dir/to/file}  
  • -mount: prevents searching on other filesystems
  • -l: Follow symbolic links.

Some examples I found:
