Debian Configuration :: Can't Login With New User (useradd Command)

Sep 5, 2015

I created a new user with command useradd (as root) :

Code: Select alluseradd razer123

And then set a password with command passwd (as root):

Code: Select allpasswd razer123
No Error!

When I logged out and tried to login with new user, I coulden't! (even after restart!)

I looked into /etc/passwd :

Code: Select allcat /etc/passwd | grep razer123

result:

Code: Select allrazer123:x:1002:1002::/home/razer123:/bin/bash

There is no home folder in the path!

# I have debian 8 and MATE desktop.

General :: Add A New User With Useradd On Debian 4.0: Segmentation Fault

Jun 30, 2010

I would like to add a new user with useradd (on Debian 4.0), I get the message Segmentation fault. I made a strace, that says: access("/etc/ld.so.nohwcap", F_OK) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory) I have read maybe the libc6 is missing or damaged, so I installed it again (apt-get install libc6, install was successfull), but the problem is still there. I touched it (touch /etc/ld.so.nohwcap)

Debian Configuration :: User Login And Run Network-manager?

Feb 16, 2016

After fossicking around I can not find anything around that I can invoke in a terminal to configure settings in network-manager. The applet(?) on the task bar doesn't ask for a login, so options are grey/grayed out. The "program" in the applications menu is similarly grey/grayed out.

If it was a once off, then I suspect that it would be simple as login as root to start X, but I have a series of config files to edited each time of their initial use. also, there is the ongoing problem of vpn target switching.

woops; wheezy with xfce4 and everything is uptodate.

c* The user's default shell.

e* The user's home directory.
Which is the correct answer? I have my own thinking which will be explained later.

General :: Useradd Creates User But Fails To Make Home Directory

Oct 7, 2010

when I try to add a user it fails to make the corresponding home directory. I can still su to the user, set the password, and everything else. the output is as follows:

$ useradd username
useradd: cannot create home directory /home/username

I read that this could be a result of there not being enough space but if I do df -h, i see that only 88% of the memory is being used.

Red Hat / Fedora :: Login - Error "no Profile For The User Can Be Found And It Couldnt Create Per-user Gnome Configuration Directory"

Aug 8, 2010

I have a network set up that has been working for around a year with no problems but has now developed a login problem. The system was set up with a main server with all users on it and another PC located elsewhere that people could log onto using there personal login and password that then gained access to the account on the main server. This remote PC has now got the problem. When you try to log onto an account it comes up with the message "your session has lasted less than 10 seconds. If you have not logged out yourself this could mean there is a installation problem or that you are out of disk space."

Error message says that no profile for the user can be found and it couldnt create per-user gnome configuration directory. I can log on as root onto the remote PC as it is obviously a local account but all the account on the main server are not accessible. From the root account I can see that the connection to the server is OK and I can actually log into the accounts on the server using the failsafe session so the physical network is OK.

I never built or designed this set up and to be honest I normally work with windows so its all a bit strange to me. Both PC's run Centos 5. I have checked the messages log and there doesnt seem to be any indication of a problem. Just that it stopped connecting from the remote PC. The accounts are all active on the main server itself and have no problems being accessed.

CentOS 5 :: Gnome-login Configuration - Restore User Profile?

Nov 20, 2009

Last night I started my computer and loaded my CentOS 5.2 partition (Windows 7 on the other partition). I was able to login to my account, but was given a gnome error that the panel buttons (i.e. weather, cpu monitor etc) could not be loaded. I then went to restart the computer (probably not the smartest thing to do) and was given some file errors upon shutdown that were related to /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00. After restart I was taken to a shell and ran fsck manually. It seemed to find a lot of bad blocks, so I repaired the /dev/VolGroup00 system and restarted. At this point CentOS seemed to boot normally, but upon loading of the login screen I get the error: Configuration not correct The configuration file contains an invalid command line for the login dialog, so running the default command. Please fix your configuration.

I cannot even log in as root. I get the error /usr/bin/gnome-session: error while loading shared libraries: libgnome-desktop-2.so.2: cannot open shared objects file: no such file or directory. I then went to a shell and ran: sudo yum install libgnome-desktop-2.so.2, but the package was already installed and up to date, so there was nothing to do. I am therefore stuck at this login screen with pull-down menus and tabs where I can change the configuration, add/remove users etc. So, my question is this: How do I restore my user profile so I can login....and if anyone has some insight, what caused this to happen in the first place? I should also mention, this all happened after plugging the computer into a new internet connection. No clue if that's even relevant.

Debian Configuration :: Invalid User Using SSH

Nov 26, 2015

I just installed Debian Jessie (3.16.0-4-amd64) on a desktop box I intend to use as a server in our home office. During installation I included the web server and SSH server options. I have a user account, 'mitchell' set up in addition to root. Everything is working great except that I am unable to log in via SSH from other machines, such as a Windows desktop also on the office LAN (using PuTTY). From the PuTTY terminal it looks like the user name is accepted because the password is requested, but after entering the password it says "Access denied".

Back on the Debian box in I see:

Code: Select allNov 26 14:12:02 DebianDevP6TSE sshd[2278]: Invalid user mitchell from 192.168.1.96
Nov 26 14:12:02 DebianDevP6TSE sshd[2278]: input_userauth_request: invalid user mitchell [preauth]
Nov 26 14:12:07 DebianDevP6TSE sshd[2278]: pam_unix(sshd:auth): check pass; user unknown
Nov 26 14:12:07 DebianDevP6TSE sshd[2278]: pam_unix(sshd:auth): authentication failure; logname= uid=0 euid=0 tty=ssh ruser= rhost=rmbiserv.attlocal.net
Nov 26 14:12:10 DebianDevP6TSE sshd[2278]: Failed password for invalid user mitchell from 192.168.1.96 port 60010 ssh2

So I am guessing I need to set up either the SSHD server, or maybe something in PAM, to authorized users for SSH access?

As a note, "mitchell" is the user name I use to log on to Debian, and I am entering the same user name and password when trying to log in via SSH.

If I try to log in via SSH as "root" I get the following in the log:

Code: Select allNov 26 14:17:01 DebianDevP6TSE CRON[2329]: pam_unix(cron:session): session opened for user root by (uid=0)
Nov 26 14:17:02 DebianDevP6TSE CRON[2329]: pam_unix(cron:session): session closed for user root

Debian :: Can't Login As Either Root Or User Following Upgrade

Sep 24, 2015

Since upgrading my Debian/unstable amd64 installation a few days back I can no longer log in as either root or user, whether to SDDM, via the console, or via ssh. When trying with the console, I can see the login message flash briefly on the screen, before the console resets itself.

I can boot into recovery mode, and examine log files. I enabled systemd debug logging and, amid reams of messages, these seem the most pertinent:

Sep 25 02:24:43 cooler systemd[1]: Received SIGCHLD from PID 937 (login).
Sep 25 02:24:43 cooler systemd[1]: Child 937 (login) died (code=killed, status=6/ABRT)

Debian Configuration :: Wireless Only For Main User?

Mar 24, 2010

I don't exactly know what happened but for some reason only the main user has access now to the networkmanager and is able to connect to internet. If I switch to another user, the networkmanager reports no connectivity and the PCMCIA card dies. Does anyone know what to do? It seems like an access feature, related to permissions or something.

I checked but the user is added to the netdev group...

Debian Configuration :: FTP Users Do Not Have Access Via SSH, Only User ID?

Oct 23, 2010

It looks like my web/ftp server has been hacked but I'm not sure how. I logged in tonight and found I had new mail. I read it and found some e-mails that had failed to send because I don't have mail setup (luckily). The e-mails were trying to send my user name and password to the e-mail address lostsoul2k@ymail.comI've no idea where to start, I use SSH, FTP now and then and it hosts a Wordpress site. The FTP users do not have access via SSH, only my user ID. However, the e-mails also contained another user ID that only has FTP access to the server.I've looked through the logs for rkhunter but it doesn't look like it found anything.

Debian Configuration :: User Access To A USB Stick?

Oct 30, 2010

This is a perennial problem with Linux. I am just not comfortable moving a lot of casual files around as root. How can I have user access to a USB stick? I've done my Google searches and tried several methods, some of which work temporarily but not permanently. At the moment, I have this line in my /etc/fstab: /dev/sdd† †/media/usb_flash† ntfs† noauto,users,rw,umask=0 0 0
As with other methods, this worked last week but not now.

All I want to do is insert a USB stick, transfer some files and remove the stick. I want to do this as a user. This should be simple. What is the trick?

Debian Configuration :: Wlan0 Gets Deactivated While Login

May 13, 2010

From yesterday on, I am not able to connect my Laptop to my WiFi Router automatically when logging in to gnome desktop.

The following is the message found in /var/log/messages.

Its Lenny 5.0.4 and I can see my wifi LED ON till the gdm login page. After the login, while loading my desktop, the LED goes OFF and I have to restart the network-manager for enabling the wifi again. Why is this happening? Do I have to change the configuration settings in /etc/dbus-1/system.d/ to fix this. I really don't know what change needs to be done there and where.

The same day when this problem started while logging in I got an error message from nautilus. The screen-shot is attached with this mail. Does this error have anything to do with the network issue?

Debian Configuration :: Stuck At Screen Before Login

Aug 23, 2010

I'm new to the world of linux I've started using it just one week ago.I installed Debian Lenny without problem, and after 2 or 3 days managed to make my wifi and ATI card to work. Today I tried installing compiz, through the packet manager that comes with the system. It was downloaded and installed successfully, so I rebooted to see it effects (I guess) but after that, I wasn't able to get to the login screen anymore, it just gets stuck at the "gray" screen before that (I took a pic of what screen i'm talkin about). Then I accessed in console mode and removed all the compiz packages, tried dpkg-reconfigure gnome and gnome-core, then reinstalled the ati drivers, but the problem is still there.I don't want to reinstall the whole system, I don't think a simple problem like this is enough to do so, but sincerely I'm completly lost.
