General :: Give An User 777 Permissions Without Affecting Others?

Aug 16, 2011

I have a user on my CentOS server who is not part of any group, just by themselves.

How can I give that user 777 permissions without affecting any other user on the server? I have chroot off, so I can see everything, but the user cannot write.

Do I use chown?

General :: Password Policy Affecting Root User ?

Aug 3, 2011

I am using pam module to set password policy in my SuSE linux machine. This is my /etc/pam.d/common-password file:

Now if root user tries to change the password of a normal user, giving the same password, it is throwing an error saying "Password has been already used. Choose another".

> passwd user1
> password1 (set successfully)
> passwd user1
> password1 (Password has been already used. Choose another)

This should not happen with the root user.

General :: Give User Access To Directory In Another User's Home

Mar 8, 2010

I'm developing an application in which one user must run java software that I'm compiling as another user. I wanted to give user A permission to see the bin direcory of my workspace, which is in the home directory of user B. I was wondering how can this be done? I gave the bin direcotry full read/execute premissions, but since it's in my home directory user A can't navigate to it.

I know there are a few ways I could get around the problem but they arn't very elegant. I was wondering if there is a simple method for giving a user access to a specific directory without giving access to all the parent directories. I tried symbolic link but user A still can't access it, and a hard link to a directory isn't allowed in Linux. I don't feel like making a hard link to every single file in the bin directory, and I'm not sure that would work anyways, since every recompile overwrites them.

Ubuntu :: No Sound - Affecting One User Profile?

Mar 20, 2010

I appear to be experiencing an annoying issue with my soundcard. As you can see from the images below, the soundcard is detected, but not when it comes to the "output". This is only affecting one user (my admin account is fine, as was a new user set up to test it).

I've looked at this page and have attempted reinstalling alsa, but to no success.

The results from aplay -l are:


**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: SB [HDA ATI SB], device 0: ALC883 Analog [ALC883 Analog]
Subdevices: 1/1
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0


"stevek" being the user that I'm having difficulty with. I suspect that I might need to recreate part of my user profile, but I'm not sure where start.

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 :: Give Directory Permission To A Group And Not Specific User?

May 26, 2010

I'm trying to do something like thisi created a group called www and made this group the owner of the directory/var/www/htmlso i can read and write to it.of course I've add my self to this group, but it seems i can't read and write.the syntax i used was something like chown :www /var/www/html.didn't workonly when i used chown samurai:www /var/www/html i could finally could create new file.the reason i don't want to specify the user name is because I'm thinking of a scenario when i need to give permission to a large group of ppl and don't want to do it user by user.

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.

Ubuntu Security :: Anyway To Get Nautilus To Give Root Permissions On Server?

Mar 30, 2010

I have recently secured a server by preventing root from logging in via SSH. Now I log in with a non-root account and use 'su' when necessary.However, now I can't do something I used to do, which is open 'sftp://user@ipaddress' in nautilus and be able to edit files as root. Is there anyway to get nautilus to give me root permissions on the server? Or at least end up with root permissions in a GUI text editor on my computer? I don't mind if I have to use bash to start the process, once I can get a GUI for editing files.

Note 1: Yes, I realize I could ssh in and use nano/vi etc, but I'd rather use my graphical text editor.
Note 2: The server does not run X, so I can't just forward it.
