I just installed the new Fedora 11 and have used earlier versions in the past a few times before. I am trying to figure out if there is anyway to automatically allow root access to everything once an administrator logs in as admin. I am extremely tired of having to type in my password EVERY single time I want to do something. Especially having to use the terminal for something as simple as copying a file from one directory to another.
I just installed Fedora 12 on HP Pavilion (dual boot with Windows vista). I made it all the way through the installation and created my user account. A few seconds later I got the login screen asking for my password. I enter the password and get "Authentication Failure."
The name that shows up on the login screen is my full name, not the user name that I created. Is that wrong?
I have installed fedora 14 in my computer. I installed some applications from root. I created a user id. I am unable to install my internet (broadband connection) now. every time it shows the error "Authentication failure" "install from root" something like that. How can I switch between user and root. Or how can I login as root again?
It is extremely load and aggravating. My version 9.10. I am have no other issues with the internal speaker besides the low power beep. I have tried: blacklist pcspkr in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf (actually was already done in 9.10) in gconf-editor gone to apps gnome-power manager, unchecked low power notification
gone to sound preferences muted alert volume. If this was a desktop i would just physically disable the internal speaker, but i don't want to open up my laptop do to possible difficulty of reassembly.
I am trying to install Ubuntu 10.04 in text mode on a VIA EPIA-M motherboard with VT8623 VGA that gives a distorted screen when using the framebuffer. I used to be able to disable the framebuffer during installation by passing debian-installer/framebuffer=false to the kernel, and the screen would be fine. However, with Ubuntu 10.04, I still get a distorted screen even with debian-installer/framebuffer=false.
I installed the PinguyOS version of Maverick, but even after disabling all the repositories that came with it I still couldn't get this to work. Therefore this must be a problem with Ubuntu 10.10 itself, however if this problem does exist is Ubuntu, I'm surprised these forums are flooded with complaints. I've searched them up and down and I found nothing. Anyway, the problem is that I can't install digikam, this is the error I get: The following packages have unmet dependencies.
digikam : Depends: kdebase-runtime but it is not going to be installed Depends: kdepim-runtime but it is not going to be installed Depends: libkde3support4 (>= 4:4.4.4) but it is not going to be installed Depends: libqt4-qt3support (>= 4:4.5.3) but it is not going to be installed Recommends: kipi-plugins but it is not going to be installed E: Broken packages
The problem here seems to be that the kde libraries that come with ubuntu are version 4.5 for everything. And it seems digikam 1.4 is built against kde 4.4.
I replaced my gnome with openbox some time ago, some of the gnome utilities still boots at at the start and I love and use most of them. Still few of them are causing problems, how can I selectively disable from autostarting?Also which utility takes care of mouse speed? I keeps resetting my settings?PS; I did some research and fooled around with xinit files, tried to grep them out of the init stuff, no result...
it tried to test the autologin mechanism, now i have to decided to go back to normal login on fc14 under gnome, but the login screen doesn't appear any longer.The autologin was activated with accounts-login and disabled by removing the twolines below
I'm an inordinate amount of trouble getting F15 to run without NetworkManager. If I boot with the NetworkManager service enabled, my NIC presents as expected at /dev/eth0 (I'm using biosdevname=0). However, when I stop the NetworkManager service, /dev/eth0 disappears from the filesystem.If I boot without NetworkManager enabled, /dev/eth0 is never created. Reviewing dmesg, udev is loading an ethernet driver.
I am not sure if this is a bug or not: I have disabled updates in System/Preferences/Software Update Preferences (set to Never/Nothing/Never) and yet when there are updates I get the icon on the Gnome panel announcing bugs or security updates.The reason I have disabled updates is that I prefer to check for updates manually with Yum, also to prevent lock conflicts between manual Yum and PackageKit.
I was running NFS in my Fedora. I found that I could not mount exported directory in client machine (Fedora ) with firewall enable in NSF server. Even I tried by clicking out all services in firewall (but not disabling it), it did not work. To make it work, I had to disable firewall. Is there any way to do this without disabling firewall?
on FC15 is it possible to change (as compiz) the mouse top corner behaviour?I would like to obtain the full windows list moving the mouse on top right corner..exist any extension that allow the userelect specific corner or is it possible to tell him on xml file configuration?
although I've been a lurker for a long time and hope the wealth of experience on LinuxForums can help me solve an issue I've been pulling my hair out for the last week.I am undergoing PCI compliancy scans and have been able to solve all the issues indicated with the exception of one: SSL Server Supports Weak Encryption Vulnerabilityport over port 25. Now before I go over the list of solutions I've tried let me post my Postfix main.cf and master.cf:
I am running CentOS 5.4 with CUPS v1.3.7 and have a Brother printer (MFC-5895CW) that connects wirelessly to a SonicWall device. The SonicWall is hardwired to my PC. I have found that periodically, the printer queue will become disabled and the only way to re-enable it is to issue a cupsenable command.
I believe that queue only gets disabled if the wireless connection drops in the middle of a print job. I've tried dropping the wireless connection and then bringing it back up when no print jobs are active or pending and the queue is fine for the next print job that is sent when the connection is up.
I did a little research and found that my version of CUPS contains support for an ErrorPolicy setting in the printer.conf file that may prevent the print queue from being disabled. I'm hoping that if I change the default value from "stop-printer" to "retry-job" that this will prevent CUPS from disabling the print queue and requirring a cupsenable command to re-enable the queue.
I don't want to play around with scheduling cron jobs to enable the queue.
First some specs: Fedora 13 (Goddard) 32-bit NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260
The DVI output on my card works just fine to my monitor, which is what I've been using. I installed no drivers; it just worked. However, now I need a duplicate screen to be given via the s-video output, but it doesn't work. Nothing is being given to the tv and nothing is being detected under monitors. From what I understand, this is because I need to install the appropriate Driver.
I downloaded my driver from the nvidia website, but it won't install. it tells me I need to disable nouveau.
I'm running a server using CentOS 5 x64 I want to disable access of groups to "bin" folder so they cannot execute commands. [info: actually because of a bug in cPanel (the control panel I installed) Perl will give access to all hosting users to execute commands.] so what i wanna do is to ban some groups on 'bin' folder, for example 'my_group1' and 'my_group2" cannot access bin but 'my_trusted_group' can access it.
On Ubuntu server 10.10, with a relay smtp server with authentication via postfix; I keep getting 535: Incorrect authentication data. I'm sure my username and password is correct. Heres how I set up postfix: I created a file called smarthosts.conf in my /etc/postfix/ directory that contains the following:
my server uses plain text authentication on port 25. I would like to use security like SSL, but this particular server is unsecured.
I need to make a choice on what authentication protocol I want to use for Authentication and Authorization. I was looking at Radius and then literature suggested that Diameter was a better protocol. Keep in mind I need this on a hetrogeneous setup ( linux & windows together). Diameter seemed like a good fit until I discovered that the open source code no longer seems to be maintained ( C/C++).
I was also looking at Kerberos as an option though there is alot overhead with the server. SSL/TLS or EAP? I am looking for simple but secure and am new at the security protocols.
I have a problem with ldap client authentication in ubuntu. I am using rhel5 as openldap server and I configured ubuntu as client, when I am trying to login the following message is coming."su: Authentication service cannot retrieve authentication info. Sorry" But when I do search through "ldapsearch" command output is coming without any errors, Can anybody explain what would be problem.
I upgraded yesterday from Wheezy to Jessie and I don't have any wifi connexion now. The wifi card is working because I see neighbours networks around but WAP authentication fails. I did not change any authentication datas of course.
I am trying to allow my freshly installed ubuntu 10.04 to authenticate with ldap. I did follow the doc https://help.ubuntu.com/community/LD...Authentication and some other hints with no success.My needs is just to use an ldap existing server (active directory in my site, but i wish to use it via ldap, not via samba/ winbind) to validate users on services using pam modules.After the package installation the command getent passwd retrieve just local users and I don't understand if my ubuntu client is not querying the server or the server reply with some message.
Here is the scenario that I�m facing.I have setup a RHEL5 machine with smb, winbind and krb with ads as the security model. Joined the RHEL machine to the domain.I�m able to see users on the active directory and also able to log-in using SSH which automatically creates a home directory for me (using oddjobd).Two things that I�m trying to achieve are:1.Only users from a certain group on the AD should be allowed to ssh into the RHEL machine.2.Once they ssh in, they should not be able to go to any other directory other than their
On old laptops with a low capacity battery, you get the "battery may be broken" message. Before Gnome 3, this message could be disabled by using gconf-editor to change the value for this message under gnome-power-manager. This now seems impossible as gnome-power-manager does not appear in gconf.
I managed to get Ubuntu installed, however, it just won't let me log in. I perform the net-install, and tell it my user name and password. However, once the install has completed, and the system rebooted, I cannot log in to Ubuntu (on X-screen or TTY). I've tried it twice - once with Karmic Koala Ubuntu installed with GNOME - the other with just CLI and they both fail.
