CentOS 5 :: Error "timeout In Locking Authority File /root/.xauthkk661q" Message When Starting Vnc-server
Jun 17, 2011
I have installed vnc-server on my CentOS 5.6 virtual machine. I can connect to it with a java web browser so it seems to be working. However, I get the following error message when I start, stop or restart the vnc-server process. Quote: Starting VNC server: 1:ken xauth: timeout in locking authority file /root/.xauthkk661q
We have the same problem but tried his solution to no avail.
Doing a shh would give me an error..
usr/bin/xauth: timeout in locking authority file /var/www/html/felipe/.XauthorityServer sent command exit status 1
When I change SElinux to permissive from enforcing I can login but turning back to enforcing, the problem comes back. I did the following...
[felipe@nimitz ~]$ ls -Z .Xauthority -rw-------. felipe felipe unconfined_ubject_r:httpd_sys_content_t:s0 .Xauthority [felipe@nimitz ~]$ ls -lZd drwxr-xr-x. felipe apache system_ubject_r:httpd_sys_content_t:s0 . [felipe@nimitz ~]$ ps -eZ|grep sshd
I tried to create a new user with the default directory in /home and it work fine.
Im trying to instal Sun Virtualbox but when download completes and I click on install I get the following error>>Message did not receive a reply (timeout by message bus) I wont even bother with this software if there are others out there that are as easy to use. I used it on Windows and thought it was great ! (thats how I eventually switched to Linux, by using it virtually at first)
One person using our DNS servers reported a very curios problem. When he tries to access [url] he gets a timeout error. I tried loading the site using chrome, firefox and ie8 and I get the same results.
I am trying to share files between Windows XP machine, ubuntu server, debian server and ubuntu desktop. But mainly between ubuntu server and Windows XP computer.I also like to learn samba, because probably I could do all this with ftp server as well.I set up and configured samba following the instruction on Online Ubuntu Server Guide.But when I run the command:sudo /etc/init.d/samba restartI get:bash: /etc/init.d/samba: No such a file or directory I don't know what is wrong?
Since yesterday we need to have oauth authentication to login to Twitter. I have compiled qoauth and then qwit and choqok but I'm not able to use both. I'm having issues with oauth I could'n solve. Qwit gives this message "Error while trying OAuth!" and Choqok "Authorization Error: Timeout on server".
I have a VPS running on centos-5-x86 and mysql server went down two days ago this is my mysql server log
110602 18:28:09 mysqld started InnoDB: The log sequence number in ibdata files does not match InnoDB: the log sequence number in the ib_logfiles! 110602 18:28:14 InnoDB: Database was not shut down normally! InnoDB: Starting crash recovery.
I am getting an error message at step 5 of 8 in the installation process. I am using Ubuntu LiveCD. The caption of the error is 'No root file system' and the message itself says 'No root file system is defined.Please correct this from the partitioning menu.' I enclose a screenshot of this. I had also problems with booting Ubuntu and Windows after installing Ubuntu to an external hard disk so I probably have to also create a new boot menu (may be it is differently called, 'grub' possibly, I am not really sure).
I have changed my username in my fedora 11. on the next restart it asks for a login with my new username but when I enter my password it gives a errror "could not update ICE autority file/home/shubhra/ICE authority" when i click ok a next error comes "There is a problem with your configuration server(/usr/libexe/gconfg/sanity)" on clicking OK to this error a the blank screen comes with mouse pointer on it.
When I start the vncserver process, I get a message saying "Starting VNC server: no displays configured." I edited the /root/.vnc/xstartup file and changed twm & to say "gnome-session &" (Without quotes). Not sure why I am still seeing this error. It's CentOS 5.4.
I can use Ubuntu from my flash drive, but I want to install it in a partition alongside windows. When I try to do this, I come to an 'allocate drive space' window, but whatever I do I get the error message: 'No root file system is defined. Please correct this from the partitioning menu.' I just don't know what this means, or what to do next. I'm loathe to ditch windows, and I don't want to have to use a flashdrive all the time.
Started slackpkg upgrade-up and went to bed. Woke up to find the power had gone out during the night. The computer booted up, but displayed a message that said something to the effect of, "Error occurred during root file system check. You will be given the option of doing maintenance......"I can get to a command prompt, but regardless of what I do a message pops saying it can't find libblkid.so.1
I was trying to install freenx on my ubuntu machine and messed up somewhere. Now I cant login to the system. I get these errors Could not update ICEauthority file /home/xbmc/.ICEauthority I tried to login with CTRL-ALT-F2 and putting this command in sudo chown test:test /home/test/.ICEauthority and i get invalid user: 'test:test'
Our server is a x86_64 centos 5.5 computer. we installed samba3x-3.5.4-0.70.el5_6.1.x86_64.Samba seems work fine, we don't notice any problem in using it. But in the workstation log file, there are a lot of error messages like:
Sometimes during bootup I get the following error:Starting Dovecot Imap: Fatal: listen(995) failed: Address already in useI tried to figure out what I could with the command lsof -i :995 and this was my output:COMMAND PID USER FD TYPE DEVICE SIZE NODE NAMErpc.mount 2936 root 7u IPv4 9201 TCP *:pop3s (LISTEN)When the system boots without the dovecot error the output of losof -i :995 is as follows:

There is a centralized FTP server which are accessed by clients to develop some web development project and to achieve this the clients are using ftp service. The problem is when they are trying to copy any files and directories they are getting the following error: "Message reported from the file system: FTP copy not supported,use move instead" I've checked all the permissions and they are all OK. I don't know why this is happening. they can create and move files and folders but can't copy files and folders.
I agree deleting .Xauthority files work, but thats not a good solution. I mean, everytime I have to run any X forwarding application I have to delete the .Xauthority file. Here is my scenarioThe applications that I want to run are on Linux Server [NFS] and the client machines [CIFS] that are having problem in locking theXauthority files are Macs which share the same domain as that of client solaris machine. i.e. The home directory of particular user on Solaris & the home directory of that user on Mac have same contents.When I ssh -X from Solaris to the server, everything works fine, no error messages.When I ssh -X from MACs to the server, I get the following warning messages.
Code: /usr/X/bin/xauth: error in locking authority file /home/user/.Xauthority /usr/X/bin/xauth is the path on the server. If I try to break the lock by sudo
I'm working on a kickstart install to automate a lot of monotony doing installs. When i use the kickstart install i get an error on boot saying "File based locking initialization failed" "no volume groups found". Then it proceeds to boot up with no issues and appears to work just fine. Below is the section of my ks.cfg for creating the partitions: %include /tmp/partition.cfg is included where the partition info usually occurs. The user is prompted in the pre script for how large they would like the partitions to be and then the script below creates the included file with partition info
We're having an issue with HTTP POST file uploads on our two Ubuntu PCs. For some reason, whenever one of our users attempts to submit a file in an HTML form, the request times out, usually with a 500 Internal Server Error message. This problem is not limited to one site, but occurs on all sites that use file uploads. Also, the problem does not appear to be with our network, as a Windows 7 PC on the same network can upload files to the same sites without any difficulties. The problem is not browser-specific; we have tested with Firefox, Epiphany, and Google Chrome and all produce the same results. The issue is relatively new, and was first observed within the last month; before this time, both machines had no problems uploading files.
Does anyone have ANY idea what could be causing this? I've tried a number of things, including rebooting the PCs, rebooting the network, disabling IPv6, etc. I'm not very experienced in Linux system administration, but I can use the terminal and am familiar with some terminal-based diagnostic tools, so if you need any additional info or want me to try something, please let me know! I've exhausted my own computer knowledge with regards to finding a solution to this problem.
I usually run my updates every Friday, my last good update was 4-Mar-2011. I could not update this week and got an error -"PackageKit Error repo-not-available: File '/repodata/repomd.xml' not found on medium http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/openSUSE:/Tumbleweed:/Raw/openSUSE_Tumbleweed_standard/'"I get a similar error message when starting Yast Software Management.Is this related to the 11.4 release? I'm waiting for fewer bugs before I upgrade to 11.4, so I'd like to be able to keep current with 11.3.
The setup is a central PC with XDMCP getting connections from two peripheral PCs. All PCs have normal Slackware installations (12.0 the central one, 13.1 the others). XDMCP works fine and the users login to KDE. The users have a common directory with appropriate permissions for group work.The problem is file locking. More than one users can open and work on the same file in the common directory, eg. foto editing the same jpg with GIMP.
Googling around I found that file locking is advisory in Linux, meaning its up to the applications to honour it. Also that there is a mand (mandatory locking) mount option which seems like the solution, but there are warnings , . Other finds point to the use of versioning systems (svn, git) to take care of file locking, or network file systems (cifs, nfs): I'd prefer not to burden casual users with having to come to terms with a versioning system, and the network file systems seem wrong since the users work locally.
Considering Linux is a multiuser OS I am taken aback from this apparent lack of file locking support and tend to think missing something obvious.Has anyoneexperienced/solved a similar setup?A couple of last points. The common directory is on a normal mount (ext3, RAID1), fstab entry:
Code: /dev/md0 /data ext3 defaults 1 2 And I'm aware of options like TSLP, but I'd rather resolve the issue generically.
I was about to do upgrade from 11.3 to 11.4.I was following the guide I found in opensuse's website. I was to the point where I had to disable all 11.3 repositories and add the 11.4 at that point I forgot to change my nvidia repository ( I have a g210m graphic card).
thus after the upgrade the X could not start at all. I think this was because Yast could not find the nvidia driver.
Using text mode YaSt2 I added the nvidia driver but after restart I can not see and X running. I receive an error message that the current kernel can not be loaded!!!
I also checked in command line if there is something like Sax2.. but I couldnot find anything.
I have Centos 5.1 and im a total newbie. I have managed to get it running with Apache and PHP but after I install mysql it fails to start with the above error. I have removed it as well using YUM and reinstalled it but it still will not start.
I was having a problem on my squid server whereby 1 website would timeout daily and return a nscd not found error: [url]....There may be other sites but this is the only one I know of. A selection of other sites still work correctly, which is the strange thing.I have found that by restarting the dns cache everything works again: /etc/init.d/nscd restart.I never know quite when this will timeout so it is not very good for people accessing that site on the server.
Centos 5.3 includes Ext4 and improved support for encrypted file systems but it appears to be aimed at laptop/desktop systems, in that a password must be entered at boot time.
Is it possible to have a server with an encrypted root file system boot up without entering a password?
Mandos will do it... http://wiki.fukt.bsnet.se/wiki/Mandos ...by serving up the password from another server... http://packages.debian.org/squeeze/mandos ...to a client loaded into the initial RAM disk environment... http://packages.debian.org/squeeze/mandos-client ...but it's not available on CentOS, and is only in Debian unstable.
Is there a similar (or any) solution for CentOS?
In particular, I'm envisaging encrypted virtual machines being served passwords from their virtual host.
Alternatively, the data that *really* needs to be protected could be encrypted while the system core remains unencrypted. But then the keys to decrypt the file system must be stored in the unencrypted portion, so this is not an effective method.
type the command ssh node2@ip the terminal hangs up a bit then an error message stating that connection timeout but here is a thing: i cant ping to node2 but i can terminate the ping manually using ctrl+c when i terminate the ping usual message appears stating 10 packets transmitted, 100% loss ps: when i go to node3 and ssh to node2 it works fine and also i can ping from node3 to node2 very fine. and the firewalls are down at all nodes
When I setup crontab as a local user (settings shown below), then it can pop-up a xmessage windows * * * * * DISPLAY=:0.0 /usr/bin/xmessage -center "warning message here" but when I switch to root, and setup the same things in crontab, why it cannot pop-up a xmessage windows? Any special limitation for root to use crontab?
I'm trying to install postgresql 8.3 on Ubuntu 8.04 LTS server and I'm running into problems starting it. Commands I've done # apt-get install postgresql postgresql-common Things I've tried Starting it manually

I'm attempting to install Webmin in Endian I download the tar.gz file and ran setup.sh and it says it is installed, however it doesn't let me go to the webpage it says. I get a timeout error. I'm using the current version of endian and webmin.
I changed the user name using the User Properties window and rename the home directory with the new user name. Did not change the Group Name. The new name is ResearLab
When I restarted the system I received an error message: Gnote Crash gnote 0.7.3-4.fc14
Following are the messages:
(1) could not update ICE authority file/home/ResearLab/.ICE authority There is a problem with the configuration server
(2) /usr/Libexec/gconf-Sanity-check-2 exited with status 256
(3) Nautilus could not create the following required folders: /home/ResearLab/Desktop, /home/ResearLab/.nautilus. Before running nautilus, please create these folders or set permission such that natilus can create them.
A. What did I do wrong? Is it not possible to rename a user in Linux? B. How can I correct this problem? C. Should I have created a new user instead or renaming an existing one? D. Can the primary group be renamed?
I have multiple computers set up in my home (self education on networking) with one used as the main machine, and the others set up as a variety of server types. The main machine is running Lucid, as gui based os. The others are all running the server version. NO Domain controller is installed, no DNS server is installed.
ALL of the server machines boot to a login prompt, allow user name and password entry, and then will fail to login with a timeout error. After anywhere from 8-15 tries, the login will eventually succeed. Error also occurs when logging in via ssh.
Brand new to Linux. Sort of got thrown in front of the bus if you know what I mean. The company I work for has a Linux server running CentOS 5.4 Company uses Linux for their Email, FTP and Web Server. Have been here a few years dabbling in and out of Linux and now that the old Admin has left the company.....I need to learn it ASAP. The server has run pretty solid until today.
The email server runs SendMail and SpamAssasin. Received lots of complaints today regarding extra SPAM. Noticed that SpamAssassin was not running. Tried to restart it through the WebMin tools and got the following error: Starting spamd: child process  exited or timed out without signaling production of a PID file: exit 255 at /usr/bin/spamd line 2588.
