Debian :: Modify To Automatically Grant Root Privileges And Execute Commands When Starts?

Aug 22, 2010

I'm connected to the internet using a wireless router. Each time I boot, I have to grant root privileges and type in a shell: iwconfig wlan0 essid linksys key dhclient wlan0 Isn't there a file(or location) that I can modify to automatically grant root privileges and execute these commands when debian starts? Something like autoexec.bat in windows.

Something else I'd like to mention is when I execute iwconfig.... for the first time, I get this incomplete result:

IEEE 802.11bg  ESSID:"linksys"
Mode:Managed  Access Point: Not-Associated   Tx-Power=27 dBm
Retry  long limit:7   RTS thr:off   Fragment thr:off
Encryption key***********

Ubuntu :: Way To Grant 'root' Privileges To User Account?

Jan 2, 2010

Is there a way to grant 'root' privileges to my user account? My account name ... I'll call it 'masterskop' as it is my forum name here, but not on my computer.Would it look like this in the sudoers' file?My purpose is to get access to all the folders and files in the 'File System'. The root and lost+found folders have 'Xs' on them...No access! And for example, under properties of the 'var' folder it states that 'you are not the owner, so you cannot change these permissions.' How can I get access to all of it everytime I login as the main user of my computer? I do not have anyone else using this computer.I did edit this file and used my real user name ... logged out and logged back in and still I do not have access/edit these folders and files.

OpenSUSE Network :: Starting Apache As A User With Root Privileges?

Jul 17, 2010

I have written a simple perl program to add a command to iptables. Here is my code :

Code:
#! /usr/bin/perl
print "Content-type: text/html
";
system("iptables -A FORWARD -s 192.168.0.2 -j DROP");

I put this file in cgi-bin folder of Apache server. Here is my problem : when I run this file with shell as root user it makes change to iptables, but when I use my browser to run this file, it doesn't make any change. I'm sure this is because Apache doesn't have permission to manipulate iptables. How can I start Apache as a user with root privileges ?

Ubuntu :: Completely Remove MySQL - Root User Loosing Privileges

Jul 20, 2010

I Installed the maintained package, Day one everything worked fine, I set a dummy database and work on it from VM windows. Day two weird errors, I searched around couldn't find the problem, the error was related to The root user losing privileges. I don't remember the exact error. So I decided to Completely remove the DB with apt-get remove mysql-Server-5.1. It gets stuck during the uninstall, I left the machine for a day and a half to uninstall mysql. I realized it was no use, I tried to Restart and try again, but I am getting the same thing.

Code:
finito@finito-desktop:~$ sudo apt-get remove mysql-server-5.1
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done

The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required:
dbconfig-common libhtml-template-perl mysql-server-core-5.1 libaprutil1-ldap
apache2-mpm-prefork apache2-utils libmcrypt4 apache2.2-common libt1-5
libaprutil1-dbd-sqlite3 apache2.2-bin wwwconfig-common php5-common
javascript-common libjs-mootools
Use 'apt-get autoremove' to remove them.

The following packages will be removed:
mysql-server-5.1
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 1 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
1 not fully installed or removed.
After this operation, 15.7MB disk space will be freed.
Do you want to continue [Y/n]? y
(Reading database ... 231901 files and directories currently installed.)
Removing mysql-server-5.1 ...
it stays stuck at Removing mysql-server-5.1 ...

I can't progress I am at the brink now, my only option right now is format, but I don't wanna do that. This setup is almost 5 years old and I have gone with many ups and downs with it. From Windows to 8.04 to 8.10 to 9.04 to 9.10 to now 10.04 each year loving the resilience of Ubuntu and the Linux architecture. I don't want to believe that this has killed my spree.

Fedora Networking :: Connecting Wired Connection 15 - SWITCH TO ROOT USER If Don't Have Privileges

May 26, 2011

Figured out a straight shot at connecting to the Internet in Fedora 15. Follow these commands.

1.)****** SWITCH TO ROOT USER if you don't have privileges*******
2.) cd /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts
3.) rm ifcfg-XXXXX (DO NOT REMOVE THE IFCFG-LO)
4.) system-config-network

-> Once in this screen, press the enter key on "Device configuration"
-> Configure your network statically. ( I did the following.) Name: leave as default Device: Leave as default DESELECT "Use DHCP" Set Static IP as 192.168.2.117 (or 192.168.1.117) Set NetMask as 255.255.255.0 Set "Default Gateway IP" AND "Primary DNS Server" to 192.168.2.1 (or 192.168.1.1)

Ubuntu Security :: Actions Requiring Root Privileges Asks For Wrong User ?

May 24, 2011

In our group we use NIS and have a group set up called netadmin which is given root privileges on each machine. Each machine also has a localuser called localuser created and used during installation. When logged in as a member of netadmin, attempting any action that requires root privileges (e.g. installing software in Ubuntu Software Center) results in a prompt asking for localuser's password, not the current user's password.

Does anyone know the cause? Configuration issue or Ubuntu issue? We can get around it.

Security :: Ssh As Root To A Workstation And Then Run Commands As Another User?

Jun 10, 2009

Senario is we have a system where root has authorised keys set up so that it can do a passwordless ssh to $WORKSTATION. I then need to run a script on $WORKSTATION as user "bob" and NOT as user "root". I do not want to set up user "bob" to be allowed passwordless ssh so any ideas how I can do this?I have tried variations of (as user "root"):ssh $WORKSTATION "su - bob; ./my_script"

Slackware :: Running Root Commands As User?

Nov 7, 2009

After a few hours work I have managed to set up pptd so that my daughter can log into her account at Imperial College. My problem now is that I need to have a script that she can run if she wants to log in. She will have to invoke a couple of root commands and I do not want to give her the root password What she needs to do to set up networking is:

Quote:

pppd call imperial dump debug logfd 2 nodetach require-mppe
/sbin/ip route add default dev ppp0

How can I enable things so that she can run this script as user?

If there is a general NFS share in the LAN and for example this share has three files - a, b, c is there any way to restrict file access to the root user of one particular host(falcon) in the same LAN environment while the normal users from the same host(falcon) should be able to access the NFS share & files a, b, c.

General :: Give Total Access To The System To A User Other Than Root?

Mar 9, 2011

How can you give total access to the system to a user other than root?

* Make the user a member of the root group.
* Change the UID of the user to 0.
* Add the user to the /etc/sudoers file.

I think none of these are correct answers.

General :: How To Give User Same Access Level As Root - Fedora 14 - KDE

Apr 9, 2011

First, I am new to linux I just finished installing Fedora 14 on a different PC which I will be using solely to explore Linux. However the first annoying problem I encountered was that I can't do a lot of things without Linux asking me for the root password. This has become really annoying, I want to stop fedora from asking for root authentication every time I want to explore something here and there.

Among the work-arounds that I've tried and didn't quite work for me are:
1. login as root on the kdm - I can login as root but because I am also encouraging my sister to explore fedora 14 she needs the same access as root too. We have our own preferences so we both need individual accounts that have same access level as root.

2. change userid to 0 (same as root) and modify groups to be exactly the same as root's groups - very bad solution, what it did was make my user a sort of "alias" for the root. It basically uses the same /root/ folder, same settings and all that stuff. Again, my sister and I need separate accounts for a more personal feel.

3. use terminal and go sudo, sudoers, etc - very bad idea, I want to explore using the kde gui. And again I want to eliminate the inconvenience of having to type things over and over again. I'd rather type the password over and over again than having to use terminal and sudo everything.

4. beesu, gksu - anyone knows how to make linux automatically wrap everything with beesu/gksu?

since we are just exploring, we are willing to trade the systems, integrity and security for the convenience of having freedom to explore everything in it. I don't care, it could blow up the pc for all I care (it's old and for experiment anyway).

This exploring linux of ours is a make or break for us to using linux. If there is no solution to this problem, we'll probably scrap the whole "migrate to linux" idea.

I thinking of making Linux recognize our user id the same way it recognizes uid 0 but I have no idea how to do this.

Slackware :: Sudo Does Not Allow Access To Root Commands

Feb 22, 2011

In order to allow me to shutdown my PC from within fluxbox without being root I ran "visudo" and added the following line:

Code:

psionl0 ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: ALL

A check that the line had been accepted showed all ok:

Code:

bash-4.1$ sudo -l

User psionl0 may run the following commands on this host:

(ALL) NOPASSWD: ALL

Yet when I tested it out, I got nowhere:

Code:

bash-4.1$ sudo pkgtool
sudo: pkgtool: command not found
bash-4.1$ sudo shutdown -h now
sudo: shutdown: command not found
bash-4.1$

Have I done something wrong or isn't sudo meant to be used this way?

OpenSUSE Network :: Root User Has Access To Remote Folders/files Of Any User?

Jan 21, 2010

Prelude: OpenSUSE 11.2 (2.6.31.8-0.1-desktop), installed Novell client 2.0 SP2 (novell-client-2.0-sp2-sle11-i586.iso).

I found that if any usual user is logged into a NDS-tree, then _local_ root has full access to user's network shares, including the user's home directory located on remote Netware-server. Is it by design or
have I missed something? Nevertheless in windows local admin has no access to network resources mounted of any other user. If you runas shell (as admin) then admin in principle can't "see" network shares which were mounted (connected) by other users - they are accessible ("visible") per session.

General :: How To Escalate Privileges To Root In System Settings

Mar 24, 2011

I know that some settings can only accessed by root (like the login manager). KDE 3 had a button where you could become root to access it.Where is this button in KDE 4? After googling I found year old articles mentioned that you should kdesu gksu systemstettings in CLI, which was ok when KDE 4 was new, buggy. But my hairs stand on end of having to use such a dirty workaround for a standard feature.Has KDE 4 taken a step back, lost an essetial and obviously necessary feature here compared to 3?
