Networking :: Granting Selected User Access To Selected Network Interface?

Oct 3, 2009

I have a multi-user machine with several network interfaces (Ethernet, if that matters). I wish to grant selected users, or groups, full access to selected network interfaces (including ability to adjust IP address and to bind to low ports, but *only* on those interfaces). It is important to me that an user/group does not such full control over other interfaces. Granting partial, or temporary, root permissions is OK; it's a friendly environment.How do I go about it?System: Linux 2.6.recent; usual Debian setup (can be adjusted if needed).

Server :: Remove Selected Files From A Backup Folder

Jan 24, 2010

I have a backup folder which I need to prune and I've been trying to do a find and destroy action on files in this folder which have not been modified for more than 30 days. I figure if no users complain that their files have been missing for more than 30 days, it's safe to delete them from this folder.

General :: Grub - Error 17: Cannot Mount Selected Partition

Dec 15, 2010

i ran into this issue only because i wanted to learn. I was reading the book, linux troubleshooting and decided to give it a try.

1) I went to /boot/ and moved vmlinuz (kernel file) to my home directory. (/root/)
2) I booted, it didnt boot (as expected) and now the troubleshooting part begins.
3) i entered to grub config mode using c
4) When i press root (hd0, (tab) it gave me 2 partitions. hd0 which is my boot partition hd1 which is my '/' partition. Please keep in mind its LVM and not a physical partition
5) If i do this, root (hd0,1), and press boot, it gives the following error Error 17: Cannot mount selected partition

During my research i found that, LVM is not supported by grub, so kindly confirm me this ? is this the reason i am not able to access my root partition ? i am doing this on vmware so no issues, but just for the sake of learning, can someone tell me some way of restoring it without using any rescure disk (livecd, liveusb etc) ?

General :: 'automate' That 'rows Selected' Preceded By Number Is Always Last Line

Jul 22, 2010

I'm not that familiar with sed and awk in order to be able to solve this problem on my own, so I'm calling on you for a bit of assistance. I'm writing a Nagios plugin to check our Oracle tablespaces and the output is given in one line like this: 1.04007771 TEMP 0 UNDOTBS1 .005340579 USERS 0 7 rows selected. I've been playing around with sed like below to delete the obsolete info and change every second space into a newline:


how many tablespaces there are so I'd have to check all databases and 'hardcode' the tablespaces in my script. Is there any way to 'automate' this knowing that 'rows selected' preceded by a number is always the last line and using a sort of counter to auto-adjust the number to put in the -e 's/ / /2' part?

Red Hat :: Copying Selected Text Using Vi?

Nov 20, 2010

how can i copy and paste selected text from one file to other using vi in RHEL5.i googled and found some methods,like just use m to mark the start, with an arbitrary buffer name (so you might type mx). Move your cursor down to where you want to stop copying, and type y'x (or d'x if you're cutting and pasting). Then move the cursor to the point where you want to paste, and type p. when i do this it pastes the entire line of which a part is selected so in essence it is working as yy. when i open a new file using vi and try to paste it says "nothing in register".what i exactly want to do is copy only the selected text as shown above in red and paste it in a new file.

Fedora :: 15 Can't Mount Selected Partition

Jun 3, 2011

I installed 15. I have reformatted the 500mb /boot partition, didn't touch the swap partition, formatted the / partition. Trying to boot, I receive a "cannot mount selected partition". This is a fresh install. I rebooted into the Live CD to do some FS Checks, and got kernal crash, black screen, lots of kernal output while in live CD trying to do FS checks. The only line that looks like it holds any info that may be relevant is the last of the lines that says: Kernal Panic - Not Syncing: Fatal exception interupt PID 1161, comm:irq/21-0000:01: tainted: g d (kernal version) Panic+0x91/0x19c

I did an FS check on /boot and it came back fine. I did an FS check on /, and it came back fine. But then I told it to do an FS check on swap and got the warning that swap is currently mounted, and that if I proceed, it could cause serious system damage, and asked me if I wanted to proceed. I chose no, and it crashed.

---------- Post added at 02:59 AM ---------- Previous post was at 02:42 AM ----------

wait, i think i found the problem. It APPARENTLY installed /boot as ext4. Reinstalling now. Will update momentarily...

---------- Post added at 03:06 AM ---------- Previous post was at 02:59 AM ----------

Nope, i explicity made sure i installed ext3 on boot this time, and it still gives the same boot error, AND i KEEP getting that kernel crash.

Ubuntu :: Utility To Kill Selected Window?

Jan 3, 2010

Before I was forced to delete (actually rename) my .gnome2 directory in order to get a fresh start, I had an icon on my panel (task-bar? SSSsssss ) that would kill the next window that I clicked. Useful when a program stops responding.My problem: Rebuilding my panel, I don't recall the name of that utility. I had originally copied it off one either the Applications menu or the System menu but I can't find it now.My questions:What is the name of that kill-next-clicked-window utility?What directory (presumably some place under .gnome2) holds the links to the programs on the panels? My search under the renamed .gnome2 directory yields a lot of nearly empty directories and nothing I can identify as my objective. (In case I get it into my head to manually edit the panel - not likely.)
