It seems pam_ldap in 11.2 is not case insensitive anymore when it comes to checking usernames with uid from ldap.It is working fine on 11.1 though (both systems with latest updates up to now)(I didn't try 11.3 yet)On our ldap server (which is out of my control), the usernames are not unified, some are all in lowercase and some are capitalized, but on our Linux servers we have all usernames in lowercase.
Since our upgrade to 11.2, the users that their uid on ldap server does not match exactly to the username on Linux servers can not login anymore. Is there any option to change this behavior and force pam_ldap to be case-insensitive or convert uid/usernames to lowercase? or all of a sudden pam_ldap decided to become case sensitive!?
Fedora 14 xfceI have installed a package using yum install package-name.However, I can't seen to find out where it has been installed to.Is there any command that will tell me what directory the files have been installed to?
When my internet is slow & i try to open a web page then I get message in my firefox 3.6.3 that 'can't find server at www.website.com'. It isn't that URL is wrong but maybe connection to DNS server is slow or something similiar. I remember that wget tries 20 times by default to get the file (browsing is downloading+ decoding+ displaying).Does any web browser or addon tries repeatedly till it is successful in contacting website server? It can tell me 'trying nth attempt at www.website.com'
I need a particular include file. I know the file name. I don't know which package would install it. apt-cache seems to only search names and descriptions. dpkg -S seems to only search through installed packages. I need to find a package that's not yet installed. I probably just missed the option in the man page... or I don't know which program to man.
I'm having trouble with my mouse wheel. On one click, it pulls down to the halfway point. This leaves me with either dragging the bar around on the right hand side, or using the touch pad. this is a new (to me) notebook, which I haven't had for long. I just can't find where to adjust the sensitivity.
I am trying to think of the best way to find packages that have been installed by NOT using a package manager.
To find installed packages one would search rpm or pkg DB, but what if the software was installed by a tarball or bin or even compiled.
Anyone got any suggestions on how to script for these, I was hoping to write a script to find all the third party stuff, I know there will be a lot of stuff that gets picked up so what is the best way to get minimize false positives?
How do I find which "software source" provided a package that I installed? Some weeks ago, I installed linux-realtime. A collaborator is trying to mirror my setup and looked for that package, but it isn't in the default software sources. So, I need to tell him where I got it.
I am working with a third party that use windows to compile. When we port that code I am running into a lot of case issues where the includes are not case sensitive. Is there any option in GCC to make it case insensitive. I know its a long shot, as I have done reading and does not seem so.
Are there any quick and easy ways to find all of the dependencies required for a package to be installed, so that we dont have to spent a lot of time searching for each package or downloading them individually?
After updating to Karmic, Synaptic shows almost all of my installed packages in the category "Installed (manual)", including about half of the packages that belong to a clean Ubuntu installation (e.g. apparmor, apt and hundreds of others). As a result, I can't easily get a list of those packages that I did indeed install manually and may want to remove. Is there a way of removing the "Installed (manual)" flag from all packages?
If I could do this, all packages that do not belong to the core Ubuntu system should show up as "Installed (auto removable)" and I could individually mark only those as manually installed that I really still need and let apt/synaptic uninstall everything else. I know that with today's hard disks, disk usage of installed packages is not an issue. But those packages accumulate over time and need to be updated with every security update and every ubuntu dist-upgrade, wasting time and bandwidth.
I downloaded a source code package for an old multi-platform game. unfortunately, the author, when he created the .zip archive of the source code, zipped it in DOS, and so all of the file names are in all caps. when i run the configure script, it errors out, not being able to find any of the files (which originally were in lower case.
so, other than the extremely tedious process of renaming each file, one by one, is there any way to fix this so it will build properly? this game was written in 1996, so i don't think i'm the first person to bump into this problem.
Well the topic name says it all. I only installed the base system and when I try "apt-get install gnome" it tells me it can't find package "gnome".Now, I'm actually to much of a noob to try to build my own Debian from the base system and up. But it still seems to be the easiest option.When I try "Debian GNU/Linux on CDs" I can't get online. I start Iceweasl but it just gives me that message telling me that it can't find the website I tried to enter (e.g www.google.com).When I try the net install I get "Bad Archive Mirror" at the configure apt part. I've tried searching your forums for this and it seems to happen to a lot of people but I still can't find a solution in any of those threads
I've come from Fedora and am trying out Arch Linux. I was wondering if the packager 'pacman' contains funcionality like that provided by 'yum whatprovides': provides or whatprovides Is used to find out which package provides some feature or file. Just use a specific name or a file- glob-syntax wildcards to list the packages available or installed that provide that feature or file.
I do 'mkisofs -iso-level 1 -o image John Smith.txt'. Only an example. When I mount image, ls outputs john_smi.txt. So it has shorten to 8.3 and translated ' ' into '_'. This is in accordance with the manual, although it doesn't say the conversion will be done.
-iso-level level ......................... With all iso9660 levels from 1..3, all filenames are restricted to upper case letters, numbers and the underscore (_). ...........................
However, as it did not reject the file name, it should have converted it to all upper case, it seems to me. And -iso-level 2|3 does the same thing.

Background: An [old] x86-based server running Debian Squeeze screwed up one of its SCSI hardware raids. Since the problem seemed more related to the raid controller than the disks (the disks still responded and I was able to restore their contents with some trickery), I got myself a QNAP NAS TS-119 as a replacement, installed Debian on it and wanted to install the original set of packages to the new platform.Instead of simply installing all packages on the QNAP that were on the old x86 box, I wanted to maintain the status of automatically installed packages in aptitude.
After looking at /var/lib/aptitude/pkgstates and a bit of confusionI looked at the aptitude source code and found the following rather simple explanation:Aptitude merges the package status information from apt and aptitude without storing redundant information in its own status file (which is good). This means the information aboutckages that were automatically installed is tracked in /var/lib/apt/extended_states.This may seem trivial but I couldn't find this information on the Internet I thought I'd submit a dummy question here in case others are havng similar problems.For the sake of completeness: There seem to be situations (like pending actions) where aptitude will store auto-install information in its own state file, /var/lib/aptitude/pkgstates.
