Fedora Networking :: Hidden WPA Password Prompt ?

Nov 8, 2010

Has anyone else encountered the really irritating issue of a hidden WPA network not auto connecting, and prompting for the root password when you manually select 'Connect to hidden wireless network'?

It works fine if I enable broadcasting of SSID but a proviso of my broadband is to keep this disabled. Ubuntu does it without any issue, can't figure out why it won't work on FC14.

Ubuntu Networking :: Cannot Longer Access Win 7 Shares (password Prompt)

Dec 19, 2010

Everything was working well between my Windows 7 shares and all three of my Ubuntu machines. I just replaced my buggy belkin router with a Netgear one and now none of the Ubuntu machines can open my windows box through Nautilus. All three (one 10.04, 2 10.10) can see the Windows box but when I click on it I get the never ending password prompts. My Mac can access the Windows 7 machine fine, and all three Ubuntu boxes can access the shares with CIFS/autofs. I just can't browse the available shares using Places->Network. I'm lead to believe something on Win 7 reset when I changed the router but after two days I'm at a loss as to what it could be.

General :: Bash Prompt / Looks Fine Initially, But There Seems To Be A Hidden Error?

Jun 1, 2011

I've written custom prompts for several boxes but this one has an error I just can't identify and need a second set of eyes to help solve it.

I've set the following as my prompt: PS1="[e[30;42m]u@h[e[0m][e[30;47m] #][e[0m][e[32;1;40m]w>[e[0m] "
(hostname/un obscured & image enlarged slightly to make it easier to read.)

Everything looks fine initially as you can see here:url

1- It sets the username@host in back on green text.
2- It then changes to an off-white an prints the command number for the terminal.
3- Next, changes to a green on black font and prints the working directory.
4- Finally is prints a ">" character and a space.

The problem occurs when I try to "up arrow" to reuse and/or edit a prior command. It prints the prior command fine, but if I arrow over to edit the command sometimes the first character can not be deleted from displaying as you can see in the following composite screen-shot


Here I did a simple ps and piped it through grep. After getting the output, I up-arrow to repeat the command. As you can see by the second section the cursor only goes back to the "s" in ps. The "p" can not be deleted. Hitting enter just displays a new line, so the "p" was just a ghost being displayed and not really there.

Fedora :: Automatic Login Without Password Prompt ?

Jun 19, 2010

I made my Fedora 13 box boot up automatically by adding the following to /etc/gdm/custom.conf


However, when it boots up it prompts me for my password so it can connect to my wireless network (I think it said something about not getting my user password at login). Is there anyway I can get it to remember this?

I would like to make this automatic because this will be a remote box that I will use as a file server, but it wont be turned on all the time. So I'll turn it on when I need it, but I'll need to connect to it remotely, so obviously it needs to be on the network.

Ubuntu :: No Administrator Password - VLC Install Blocked By Password Prompt

Feb 23, 2011

I am new to using Ubuntu 10.10 that was installed by a friend of mine, but he didn't give me a password for administrator and now when I try to install VLC I am blocked by a password prompt. To make things worse I can't use F1 key, esc key, tab key, 1key (I copy and paste 1 from other pages when I need it). I am at a loss here and all I want is to change the administrator password without validating the current password first.

Fedora Networking :: F15 Hidden Wireless Network?

Jun 12, 2011

After installing Fedora 15 on my notebook, I found that the one thing that I am unable to do is connect to a hidden encrypted wireless network automatically. I've seen plenty of people inquiring about this online but have found no solution. I can set up whatever I want to in my settings (using the old gnome2 interface setup, the gnome3 interface setup leaves the wireless options unconfigurable for some reason so I can't do anything with the "Network Name" dropdown)

All of my settings have been set up using the network manager from gnome2, but that doesn't seem to translate to my gnome3 desktop. So, is there any way to get the wireless to connect automatically on startup? I know my wireless card is working when I start my computer because it shows some of the networks in the area and I can connect to a few of the unprotected networks. This is the only problem I have with gnome3.

EDIT: from dmesg, I find the following: [485.63] ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): wlan0: link is not ready

EDIT #2: Going into the network settings just to play around with it, I discovered that the network name dropdown box appears to be grayed out, but now it works when I click it (didn't the first time) -- this allowed me to connect to my hidden wireless network. Still however, it does not connect automatically (system default is the hidden wireless network) and I still have the DNS problem

Programming :: SSH With No Password Prompt?

Apr 19, 2010

I'm writing a script which will log into a list of servers if they have public/private keypairs set up. If a server doesn't, I want the script to move on to the next server rather than wait at a password prompt.I'm using OpenSSH version 5.1p1 Debian-5, OpenSSL 0.9.8g 19 Oct 2007 on both client and server.I'm using this command: Code: ssh root "at" "IP" -o PasswordAuthentication=no KbdInteractiveAuthentication=no I had to write "at" instead of the symbol, as I'm not allowed to "post URLs to other sites after you have made 15 posts or more."This works for most servers, but not all (on some of them the script halts at a password prompt). I suspect those servers may run an older version of SSH which doesn't support the options I'm providing

Slackware :: Delay SSH Prompt After Bad Password?

May 14, 2010

delay the retry response from SSH (for, say, 10, 20 or 30 seconds) when a bad password is tried by a whacker? I mean, when I'm getting hit by 10 or more break-in attempts, is there some way to make SSH delay the next try from the site that's trying?I seem to remember something about this but haven't been able to find it and, so far, reading the SSH documentation hasn't been

I have DenyHosts running (that puts entries in /etc/hosts.deny after a few tries to break in) and I completely block China, Korea and a few others that are a constant annoyance with IPTABLES but I do get hit pretty much every day and would like to discourage the bastards as much as possible (the hits are a second or so apart which tells me they're automated and I figure delaying the response will discourage 'em).For example, here's the overnight entries from /var/log/messages (the "refused connect" are from /etc/hosts.deny entries generated by DenyHosts):

May 13 03:49:50 fubar sshd[30255]: refused connect from (

Debian :: SSH Password Prompt Delay In Lenny

Feb 22, 2010

Before upgrading to Lenny there was no noticeable delay between entering a username & the prompt for a password when logging in via ssh. Now there is about a 5-second delay which is rather annoying. There is no delay when logging in through the Gnome UI. Anyone know why the delay is there? Is it something about ssh under Lenny? Is there a setting that can be changed?

General :: Sudo Su Runs Without Password Prompt?

May 25, 2011

So here's the problem. We've got the /etc/sudoers file set up so that users can run commands from /bin like "cat" or "mkdir" without entering a password. The problem is that the "su" command is also in /bin, so if they enter "sudo su", it gives them root access without a password. Here's the /etc/sudoers file:

Defaults targetpw
%users ALL=(ALL) ALL
root ALL=(ALL) ALL
support ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: /sbin/, /bin/, /opt/, /etc/init.d/, /elo/
support ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: /usr/bin/mysql

Is there a way I can deny /bin/su while still allowing the rest of the /bin commands?

Ubuntu :: Could Not Log In After Crash (no Prompt To Enter Password)

May 11, 2011

My Ubuntu desktop crashed last night after I accidentally bumped into the CPU box. Right after I bumped into it, it restarted automatically ... then it ran disk integrity check, also automatically ...

The issue is that I can NOT log into it. There is no way that I could enter my password. Though I could telnet into it using my laptop (I have set up telnetd into this desktop before).

I am trying to search for similar issues in this forum but I could not find one that is really like this.I have all 5 years of work in the hard drive.

The two images below shows the issue it had done.

This is my login screen (note: whenever I click "nd-desktop", it doesn't give me prompt for password.

This is just the screen it gives me when I click "nd-desktop" above. Also, take note there are no usual options below that could change my preferred desktop etc.

Debian Installation :: 6 - Testing Hangs At Password Prompt ?

Apr 17, 2011

I have made several attempts to install Testing. Down-loaded Apr 11 iso and verified the DVD. Everything went ok with install. It was when I booted up after removing install disk. I have Debian dual booted. Both Linux 10 and Debian Testing show up on the Grub screen. When I select Debian everything loads but when I get to the Debian screen I am asked for my password. However, the screen is lock up and no choice can be made. Three of my previous attempts (different install disks) have left me at the same place....locked password prompt. (4 year old HP Paviiion DV5000 laptop, 2 GB memory, 120 GB HD) I have successfully installed Debian 6 Squeeze with no issues.

Ubuntu :: Password Prompt Invisible When Screensaver Active

Jan 4, 2010

presently my laptop requires a password when the screensaver has been activated(equivalent to the lock screen function). However, when I move the mouse to activate the password prompt, the screensaver freezes (all movement stops) and the password prompt is not visible. It's definitely there - if I type my password, then it brings me back to my desktop. However, if I mistype the password, or accidentally hit the mouse button so that somewhere other than the invisible password field is brought to focus, then entering the password becomes impossible, and I have to do a hard restart (ugh). I'm running an HP Pavilion dv5 laptop, with Ubuntu 9.10.

Ubuntu One :: Keyring Password Prompt Upon Starting Firefox?

Jul 12, 2010

A while ago, I removed the Ubuntu One entry from my Startup Applications because it was annoying having to activate the keyring every time I booted up/logged on. Now, I am prompted for a password once I start Firefox (mind that it's only the first time I run Firefox after boot/login). I'm assuming it's Ubuntu One because of the sequence of events, but feel free to correct me if you think otherwise. How can I stop this?

Ubuntu :: Mounting Network Share To Prompt For Password

Apr 30, 2011

I was wondering if there is a way to mount a network CIFS share manually to allow it to prompt for password. I've been Googling around and found a couple options. One was to store your credentials in a file and then add the fstab entry to look at the file. I'm not particularly fond of the idea of storing my credentials in a plain text file though, even if I put file permissions on it.Is there a way to mount the share so that it prompts for credentials. The share isn't always online so I want to mount it manually.
