executes the following line: /usr/bin/chcon -t public_content_rw_t $HOMEDIR/$USERNAME
which returns the error: /usr/bin/chcon: couldn't compute security context from unlabeled
Login attempts are unsuccessful on the given username.I followed the instructions on that page verbatim.I can't find anything useful on that error anywhere - even outside of vsftpd context.This is a new CentOS 5.5 server - updated everything with yum.VSFTP worked fine on the last server, which was a CentOS 5.x.
I try to install IPsec-Tools on Slackware 13, but I get an configure error: configure: error: Security Context requested, bu no selinux support! Aborting. I'm linux newbie and I'm following a slackware-basics tutorial, I did as in the tutorial, but the configure stops and aborts:
I am a Windows 7 user. I have two machines a laptop & a new bench top. Both machines run & boot Windows 7 very well. I use a very good program to clone my Hard Drive to an external USB drive. called Macrium Reflect. It is free and is a dream to use & very fast. This program creates a Linux based boot disk, which will allow you to find a backup clone file on an external drive to restore your hard drive. It works a treat on my laptop & has saved my bacon many times when I have messed things up fiddling with the registry etc.
The problem I am having is that my new desktop will not boot from the start up CD & returns the error kernel panic,not syncing cpu context corrupt. & then just tries to reboot again. I don't know what this problem relates to whether it is the computer hardware or the Linux CD or both. My laptop with the same OS does not have a problem, It is an Acer Aspire 5920G with 1.6ghz Intel dual core processor & 2gig Ram. The bench top has an Intel Dual core 3.3ghz processor, Zotac mother board & 4gig of Ram. both machines are running 32 bit OS.
I have browsed through the posts on this forum with people having the same error at boot, but as I am not using Linux & only using a boot CD I didn't think it appropriate to but into their threads. So I am hoping if some one can tell me is this a hardware issue or a Linux/New dual core CPU/ or Bios/Mother board issue. If it is a Linux issue then my Laptop surely would not boot would it? My bench top is only a week old and guaranteed, should I be sending it from Adelaide back to Sydney(purchased online from MWave) for fault inspection? or just take to a local Technician for a diagnosis. I am not having any hardware problem running Windows 7.
I am trying to wade through the semanage jungle to get permissions for a tftp client. I followed the HowTos [URL] but I get the following at the client:
tftp> status Connected to 192.168.1.101. Mode: netascii Verbose: off Tracing: off Rexmt-interval: 5 seconds, Max-timeout: 25 seconds tftp> get hello.o4 tftp: hello.o4: Permission denied
I finally figured out that the firewall directives shown at the end of the HowTo refer to semanage although the options are stated incorrectly according to the man page for semanage. I did insure that the file hello.o4 in /tftpboot has read permission for everybody.
I installed VSFTPD but when logging ( at command line or browser ) at any user always :

Hi I am running a fedora 10 desktop. when i send an email using evolution the message was not sent but returns a error message:"Error while performing operation.DATA command failedError: 550 Viagra SPAM - Hi in Subject" and the message did not have an attachment just plain words. what might have gone wrong for i have been using this for sometime without a problem. or what security measures should be in place to remove this viagra spamAm I infected by virus on this fedora, all my updates are up to date.
I downloaded truecrypt Linux version, giving me a file named truecrypt-6.3a-ubuntu-x86.tar.gz. I assume that's the archive. Double clicking on that produced file truecrypt-6.3a-setup-ubuntu-x86. I assume that's the executable. When I try to run that, I get a "could not display ... unknown filetype" error. Could someone tell me what I'm doing wrong? I plan to run truecrypt under the easycrypt GUI.
I'm attempting to get MapServer running on my Fedora 13 computer. I was able to install with the package manager, and the executable (mapserv) was originally placed in /usr/sbin. But I need it in /var/www/cgi-bin to work on the webserver. So I copied the file to the right location. Unfortunately, it doesn't have the correct SELinux context. Here's the message from the troubleshooter:
SELinux denied access requested by /var/www/cgi-bin/mapserv. /var/www/cgi-bin/mapserv is mislabeled. /var/www/cgi-bin/mapserv default type is httpd_sys_script_exec_t, but its current type is httpd_sys_script_exec_t. Changing this file back to the default type, may fix your problem.
How's that for circular logic? Does anyone have an idea what the correct SELinux context for a cgi-bin executable might be?
I'm suspicious that the context of /etc/sudoers is wrong. During the last upgrade to Fedora 14, RPM dropped /etc/sudoers.rpmnew, which had a different context than the real sudoers file. But, when I try to get SELinux to relabel the file (using restorecon or fixfiles), it refuses to make a change.
SELinux is preventing /usr/sbin/httpd from using potentially mislabeled filesjk-runtime-status. SELinux has denied the httpd access to potentially mislabeled filesjk-runtime-status. This means that SELinux will not allow httpd to use these files. If httpd should be allowed this access to these files you should change the file context to one of the following types, httpd_tmp_t,
I know how to change the owner of a file and the permissions but what does it mean to change the file context?
I'm working with OpenSusse 11.2. I installed and activated the NFS server via yast2. I exported the relevant directory via yast2 (NFS server configurastion) I'm trying to setup my Linux target to boot via NFS. The kernel boots up but fails to mount the file system. When looking on a capture from ethereal it can be found that the NFS server return error when client try to mount the /nfstest directory from this server. The returned error is 13
Quote: At times on our server, during more-or-less idle moments, context switching is around the 2000-3000 mark.When we run the app, we can get this up to the 500,000 CSs per second. Not only this, but at the same time, the CPUs go to >60% system (the kernel is having to do all that context switching after all), leaving only around 30% for user space. We think it is a possibility that the massive context switching is contributing significantly to our performance issues.
The server is a HP DL580 G5 with 4 x Intel Xeon E7340 @ 2.4Ghz.My issue is that I don't know if the contect switching is a problem or not.From what i've read those values are not necesserilly cause for concern.
I'm trying to mount a Windows Server share from Centos 5.5 (kernel 2.6.18-194.26.1.el5). I've tried two approaches neither of which work.
1). Using Places->Connect To Server. This approach works fine on Ubuntu but not at all for Centos. Using the 'Windows Share' Service type, it allows me to see the remote directory - I can see all of the directories on the server. But as soon as I click one, I get an error 'Couldn't find "smb://blah/blah". Please check the spelling and try again. As I say, this worked fine on ubuntu. Tried loads of options but with no luck. I saw something on the web about leading slashes being a problem.
2). Using Mount . Tried to use mount to mount as a cifs filesystem, as documented on a number of web pages:
mount -t cifs //server/dir -o username=username,password=password /mnt/tmp
This completely hangs the machine.I means completely, no mouse, no nothing. I've seen some references to unstable cifs on the web but I believe that this kernel has the fix for this.
obviously it's at least difficult but I'm interested in knowing if it's theoretically possible to allow anonymous users of vsftpd to upload to the same directory that anon_root is set to. If it's not then it's no big deal, I'm just trying to get a sense of the range of possibilities.
