Fedora :: 10 Logged In As Root, Cannot Install Package Updates In Graphical Environment?
Jan 17, 2009
I have updated the gdm file to be able to log in as root in Fedora 10.Nevertheless after I had selected package updates to be installed logged in as root I still get an error message that I do not have enough privileges.The terminal installation method is a bit of a problem since I do not think it will search for dependencies and therefore it can be excessively long to figure out what is missing for a package installation. In simple cases it works OK, but in more difficult cases it is a bear.
after a upgrade via DVD (11.3 -> 11.4) which shows no errors, i can't start the Xserver. During Startup in Grub i have an graphical enviroment.
xorg.log says: Code: (EE) Failed to load /usr/lib64/xorg/modules/drivers/radeon_hd.so (II) UnloadModule: "radeonhd" (EE) Failed to load module "radeonhd" (loader failed, 7) (EE) No drivers available but the file /usr/lib64/xorg/modules/drivers/radeon_hd.so is there.
I am using Fedora 10 .Generally to update I open a virtual console by pressing Ctrl-Alt-F2,login as root and give the "yum update" command.Then I continue using my graphical terminal for other tasks from the 'non-root' account..Now my room-mate comes uses my 'non-root' account to browse web for few minutes and then opens a terminal types "halt", ENTER and viola...! My root account seems to be insulted by a 'non-root' user!.When I am doing updates or other important work as root any silly user can just 'halt' my computer. Can somebody tell me how to set up my computer so that when root is logged in no other user can simply halt the computer.
I've gone though the system purging/removing what I don't require on my Fedora install using the graphical tool in gnome 3. I then used package-cleanup --leaves to clean up some cruft left behind. yum list installed shows I still have 1031 packages installed, which is about 400 more than similar setups I used to have on Debian, and truthfully on Debian I have more stuff installed that I've still got to install here (gimp, nvidia drivers, etc).
I see a buch of stuff in yum list installed I don't need, so I can use yum remove foo to cleanup some more, but I'm wondering if there's another graphical interface or perhaps and advacned option in the add/remove software application I've been using thus far.
when ever i try to install updates i get shown an error & the updates stop the error i get says "librpmio.so.0 is needed by package abrt-1.0.3-1.fc12.i686 (updates) librpm.so.0 is needed by package abrt-1.0.3-1.fc12.i686 (updates)"
I am using 10.04. The grub is working properly but i can't login in graphical environment because the system stops at the ubuntu boot logo. However, TTY is working properly and i am able to login in all the tty [F1-F6]. I think the problem is with xserver but I don't know how to fix it.
The 11.04 does Ubuntu Server installed with graphical environment, I'm getting a gnome graphical environment, but I wonder if there are other functional graphical environment with Ubuntu Server, the idea is that it serves to maintain the network and have tools for such end.
I'm not a Linux noob, but I am far from guru. I'm running a single board computer with a slightly customized Debian Etch (customized by the SBC vendor). No Gnome/KDE/X installed. My application is a control application which uses SDL (Simple DirectMedia Layer) to paint some basic graphics on the VGA. I need to run it as root because the application calls iopl() to access an IO port.If I run my application manually from the command line, life is sweet. From Googling around, I found http://www.debian-administration.org/articles/28, and hence I:1) Created a script in /etc/init.d2) Executed "update-rc.d scriptName defaults" to link the script into the boot sequenceAll very straightforward. My application starts at boot. But when I try to SSH/SFTP into the SBC, I get "Connection refused". So I can't manage the SBC anymore, and this is a big problem. I am not sure if it's relevant, but my application starts before the SSH daemon.My script looked like:
case "$1" in start) echo "Starting my application"
Recently switched from windows XP on Debian. Very happy) After reading smth my eyes are really tired, fonts are smoothed or smth like that But! Do not like the font settings, there is no definition that is in the windows. Very tired eyes, advise how to configure?KDE stands Smoothing, that is just not done
I'm looking for a way to set arbitrary environment variables for my graphical login on linux. I am not talking about starting a terminal and exporting environment variables within the terminal, because those variables only exist within that one terminal. I want to know how to set an environment variable that will apply to all programs started in my graphical session.
In other words, what's the Xorg equivalent of ~/.bash_login?
I'm very new to the Linux world, so be gentle. I've been trying to configure the server to run a graphical interface. I have read numerous configuration guides and posts, but nothing seems to fix the issue. I tried to change the run levels from 2 to 5,
In programming sense what is Desktop ?I can run any gnome apps using terminal or "Run Application" ?Such as , to open terminal i can type gnome-terminal and it invokes. What is Xwindow , xserver and Why do we need Gnome , KDE etc ?Why i cannot launch any graphical application [ firefox as example ] without loading xserver ?? I donot need wallpaper , start menu bla bla .. I only want to run any graphical applictaion using default black terminal.
I recently gave the boot to Windows and installed Fedora 10. Under Windows, I was using VirtualBox for all of my virtualized computing needs. I had set up a virtual network with two virtual machines - one running Windows Server 2K3 and the other running Windows 2000 Pro. I could run both VMs at the same time and still use the host OS. Now I am trying a similar setup under Fedora, I am using VirtualBox to run Server 2K3 and Windows XP. The problem I encounter is that when I run one VM, one of my CPU cores rockets to 100% usage and the other hovers around 40% - 60% usage. Is there a way to enhance performance so I can run both VMs at the same time? Third, what would be the effects of me installing the Xen runtime environment package or the Xen emulator for KVM?

I have my first problem with drivers in Linux! I installed openSuSE 11.4 x86 on my computer (Intel Dual-Core 2,5 Ghz; Nvidia 7300 GS) and after installing graphical drivers (proprietary) I can't load the system. All I have is a progress bar of user's profile loading and playing the startup sound. I already installed openSUSE 11.4 x86_64 version on this computer and there was no problem with drivers.
Two weeks ago I consumed all available FC13 updates. It was a terrible mistake. After that my my PC does not function properly and I have no clue how to fix it. I would like to get my PC in the previous (healthy) state. Is there an easy way to undo the updates? More than 60 packages were updated, but I do not remember which ones.
I am using Fedora 14 and I need to install the libudev-devel package, but the following error occurs: Error: Package: libudev-devel-161-8.fc14.i686 (updates) Requires: udev = 161-8.fc14 This is because the actual version I have installed is: udev-161-9.fc14.i686 (@updates-testing) How can I downgrade to the udev-161-8.fc14.i686 package?

I have a Red Hat 4 server with Sungard Luminis installed on it. I was following some instructions on setting up Luminis to start at boot. One of the steps was modifying the sudoers file. Since modifying the sudores file, I am no longer able to "su" to root when logged in as a normal user. When doing so, I get su: incorrect password after putting in the password. I have another server with the exact same setup, broken one is test, the other is production, that works just fine. I made no changes to my production server. I've been looking at different things all day and the only difference I have found between the two are the results I get from running rpm -q --verify coreutils. Running that on my prodution server returns nothing. Results from my test server are below. Is this what is causing my problems? If so, what's the fix? I haven't found that yet. I've checked /etc/pam.d/su, both servers are the same.
Ubunto 8.4, running on 2nd partition on Apple Intel iMac. Several months ago, following a routine update, I found I could no longer install routine updates. Investigating further, I find "You don't have permissions to..." then sudo: /etc/sudoers is owned by gid 1002, should be 0. That's not me! I am the owner and root user of this computer. How could this get changed? How can I change it back to me? The Linux platform of the computer has not been exposed to the net except for Ubuntu forums and updates. No one else has used this computer.

I have been using Redhat/Fedora for 11 years. I don't understand why Fedora 11, can't even do a vga graphical install, when Windows can.
I tried many parameters, including xdriver=vesa, and it cannot used graphical install.
So, I tried text install, which I have done many times in the past.
However, F11 seems crippled, in that it will NOT do the same install achievable from a graphical install.
It will NOT allow the use of fdisk, and it will NOT allow any selection of any packages.
What is the point of this option?
Even after trying all of this, for a dual boot install, and F11 claims to have installed, there is no grub or equivalent, and the computer just boots windows, just like Fedora 11 did absolutely nothing.
What are the options now? Why is text install so crippled and incomplete? Why is standard VGA mode so hard?
