where are the "System Log Viewer" config files stored? I know most have been moved into /var/rsyslog.d/ folder but where are the users config file stored? I restored my local /home to a fresh install and the Log viewer is looking for log files from the OLD install.
So there must be a config file somewhere in /home/$user that the system log viewer is reading from as well as the rsyslog.d folder...
I have an auditing problem. I am required to be able to track user account modifications (creates, deletes, password changes, etc.) My team and I implemented auditd 1.7.17 and borrowed an existing rule set from /usr/share/doc/audit-1.7.17/nispom.rules. What we're seeing is that user account activity from the command line is retrievable by doing an 'aureport -m'. However, doing the same through the GUI, 'aureport -m' does not display the activity. So I have two questions:1. Is there another location I should be looking to find the user creation activities when using the GUI?2. Is there a way to make the activity using the GUI be captured in /var/log/audit/audit.log so 'aureport -m' can report it?Someone suggested a PAM configuration change, but was not able to tell me what change to make.
I have a Samba File Server that can authenticate users in my Windows AD to log into the server. Anyways, I have a good amount of Windows Admins on staff but our org wants to cut budget so our first "slash" as it were is cutting down the actual Windows based File Servers.So my question is, now that I have this test server up and authenticating for logins using Windbind....is there a way I can get system-config-samba to "see" winbind users and groups so that file servers can still be "point and click" for my Windows Admins?
I just installed FC12 (18.104.22.168-127.fc12.x86_64) alongside Windows7 on a brand new box, and the DVD drive is driving me nuts. In FC, I can't get the DVD drawer to stay open. When I press the eject button, r slides out, but then slides right back in again immediately. When I start the SystemTools->DiskUtility (Palimpsest), the Eject function is grayed out.The drive itself seems to work just fine, I used it for the FC install from LiveCD. In Windows, the drawer works properly.The only device info I can see for the drive is DH16AAL, I don't know if that's a model no. and I don't know the manuf. Says SCSI, but it's got a SATA cable. The rest of the box is:
Forum, I note many references re best to not use root when doing general work in the terminal screen but when I try and log in as another user the screen disapearsWith a server, can the users (windows xp pc's) use their login to login on a server terminal screen or do I need to create a new user for the server only??Using Putty to get in as root but with so many warnings out there it is only time before the &$%@ hits the punker
Just updated my iPhone to iOS4.1 to take advantage of the HDR feature in the iPhone. It's great. Now I cannot sync with rhythmbox. Stay away from iOS4.1 - libimobiledevice is not up to it yet. Why must Apple make it hard for us linux users? (Think differently - as long as you use only our products).
When logged in as my standard user in Fedora 11 gnome desktop the installed ntfs-config tool will not open and gives an error which says this; "no authentication program found", and to run that ntfs-config as the root in a terminal. So then the only way to open that tool is to type that in a terminal, and it did open, but how can I fix this ? Can this issue be related to ownership and permissions of it ? Also the num lock does not come on during boot up, is there a easy fix for that too ? This is a recent fresh updated install from the DVD with the ext4 file system. All the ntfs-3g applications are installed as default, so I just added that enable ntfs write support tool with the package manager.
I've got a situation where I would normally use NFS, but cannot. So in it's place I need to use a samba share (even though it's linux -> linux). I need it completely open and world writeable as if I had done an rw in an NFS export. I thought I had it as when logged in as a user I can edit delete etc. however the apache user seems to be struggling with creating files.
Here's my smb.conf as it stands. Code: [global] workgroup = WGRP server string = Samba Server Version %v security = user passdb backend = tdbsam unix extensions = no
[sites] comment = Sites Directory path = /var/www/sites public = yes guest ok = no write list = siteusr writeable = yes create mask = 0777 browseable = no security mask = 0777 directory security mask = 0777 note that the drive is mapped as user siteusr
Why is it that the Add Remove Program Window won't stay open in 9.10? I added a few Video Programs. It was working fine,but now I can't remove any Programs. The Window will open for a few seconds, but then closes.
I'm using Opensuse on a small computer that needs to run a web site 24/7/365. It's an mp3 player, it's used for music, the player is an html5 player that runs in fullscreen mode of firefox.It's connected to a TV via HDMI. I've set all possible power options so it never sleed, idle, hibernate or close. Same thing for display, never dim or turn on screen saver. Although the TV is not ALWAYS on the PC's HDMI input, sometime switching to TV Tuner and other time to PC display.So if we switch the tv's input to tuner and the to PC, opensuse won't re-detect the display and the TV will say NO SIGNAL until I completely reboot the PC ... very annoying ... The other problem is that the TV is far from the server so I need to use VNC and re-open firefox, go to the player and re-set fullscreen mode. But worst, I can only use VNC once. If I want to reconnect via VNC, I need to login SSH, restart service and then I can connect ...1. How can we set VNC to ALWAYS accept connection and that from a fresh boot ?
I have tried eject /dev/cdrom, sudo eject, pressing the eject button but whenever i do , it just opens for like 1 second then closes right back. is this fixable within Xubuntu, or is this a physical problem with the cd drive?
My machine is a new Fedora Core 12 install. The install did not make an /etc/x11/xorg.conf file by default, which is odd. So, I want to change things with the display. But there's no "system-config-display" in /usr/bin. What's going on? Why wasn't this installed by default? I've had lots of other problems with X on this machine as well:
the 10x20 fonts were missing XFree86-Misc error messages whenever I start an xterm I also receive these warnings, intermittantly, when I create xterms:
Code: Xlib: extension "XFree86-Misc" missing on display ":0.0". xmodmap: please release the following keys within 2 seconds: Control_L (keysym 0xffe3, keycode 37) xmodmap: please release the following keys within 4 seconds: Control_L (keysym 0xffe3, keycode 37) xmodmap: please release the following keys within 8 seconds: Control_L (keysym 0xffe3, keycode 37)
With this many problems I want to know if there's something in general broken with X on FC12, or was that just my install, or what?
I just updated from Fedora 8 to 10 to 11 today. When I run system-config-display I get the following message:
Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/share/system-config-display/xconf.py", line 33, in <module> import rhpxl.monitor ImportError: No module named rhpxl.monitor
If I comment out that line, the next one fails, and so on. I installed a newer package, 1.1.3-2.fc11, because I thought maybe the installer didn't put it on and that behaves the same. Why this won't run? I would desperately like to use my widescreen monitor and I'm hoping that 11 will finally support my intel graphics correctly.
I'm curious as to why system-config-services is not installed by default in Fedora 13. IMO it's a pretty important tool for managing a system. I checked the release notes but could not find any mention of its removal.
I looked around, but found no results that really matched and I would like to point out that I am fairly new to linux, so this may be a very obvious answer to some of you.I am running fc12.i686, installed from a disk in the back of a book for a class. No one else in my class is having this issue.When I select System > Administration > Network I am given this error: Failed to execute child process "/usr/bin/system-config-network" (No such file or directory). I am not so new to not realize that this file is not there, which I confirmed with an "ls -a". My question is, is there any way that I can download and install that bin? Or perhaps replace/repair it with the disc? It was supposed to be in the original install and my have been, the only thing that I have done in the /usr/bin/ directory is I tried to install Java (6.22 I think it was), which told me it installed correctly but didn't work when I tried Minecraft.
After an upgrade (preupgrade) from Fedora 12 to 14, system-config-boot opens from the menu and displays the right information but does not change grub.conf. I have searched the forums and found nothing like this. It worked before the upgrade. I have forced a new install of system-config-boot. I can change grub.conf manually. There are no SElinux messages that I can find. It would be nice to get the gui working.
I've been running F10 since it first came out, and I was happy to see it was the first Fedora release that automatically recognized my Atheros wireless card. I have to run system-config-network and press the "activate" button when I start the machine, but that's ok and no big deal. But today, for whatever reason,in system-config-network, the "activate" and "deactivate" buttons are grayed out and I cannot start the device so I have no network access. When I boot the machine into Windows, it works fine.
When I installed F11 it didn't have the i810 driver so it defaulted to VESA. I upgraded to F12 using preupgrade and thought it would re-detect the graphical hardware and didn't. I want to recreate xorg.conf for my computer (Toshiba Satellite A45-S25) so I can use Compiz and some 3D application but I can't find system-config-display. It's missing from the system and I don't know what package it belongs to so I can't re-install it.
Been running Fedora for a while now, iterating up through versions to 12. Decided to to a clean install upgrade to 14. Apparently, bug mistake. Everything seems to be progressing fine, but after 'transferring install image to harddrive', the 'Starting Install Process' fails withsystem-config-lvm-1.1.15-1.fc14.narach.rpm cannot be opened.I have no idea what to do with this. I've reburned the install disk a couple of times (and checked the HASH) -- no apparent problems with the install media.Tech details: x86_64 install on a multi-pro box with a 3ware raid 5 controller (5 disk). I've never run LVMs. Two simple hard partitions (/ and /home). Fedora 12 installed with no problems (as did every other version of Fedora <=12).---------- Post added at 12:29 PM ---------- Previous post was at 11:54 AM ----------Some additional information:1 tried Fedora 13 -- wouldn't even recognize my disks. Installer hung at trying to find basic storage. Not a good sign2 tried my old Fedora 12 install DVD -- again, worked like a charm. Expect that F12 repos are now closed.
So, it seems as if some 'change' between F12 and F13/14 has made some part of the install process choke on my 'hardware' (I'm guessing something related to 3ware RAID card). ---------- Post added at 01:51 PM ---------- Previous post was at 12:29 PM ----------I just tried CentOS 5.5 (x86_64). Also installed fine. For some reason, Fedora >= 13 absolutely won't let me get past the problem noted in the OP. I suppose I could go with CentOS (for long EOL support), but I need some of the newer compiler/dev libs in Fedora 14 for some projects I'm working on.
