General :: Seeing The Last 5 Received Mails When Logged In With Normal User?
Mar 17, 2010
I am trying to see the last 5 mails in a single window that the rootuser has sent to a particular normal user.However,I am not able to do so.Is there any command that can display the last 5 mails in a single window sent to a particular user?
am using qmail and have webmin, all is running smoothly, but i have users spamming other staff accounts.The question: How do I block a user from sending out mails but still able to receive mails. Just denying access to sending mails?if anyone can guide me to do it via terminal as well as webmin.Why webmin you ask, because I have tried it once it works but sadly it block both incoming and outgoing mails.
I have a Red Hat 4 server with Sungard Luminis installed on it. I was following some instructions on setting up Luminis to start at boot. One of the steps was modifying the sudoers file. Since modifying the sudores file, I am no longer able to "su" to root when logged in as a normal user. When doing so, I get su: incorrect password after putting in the password. I have another server with the exact same setup, broken one is test, the other is production, that works just fine. I made no changes to my production server. I've been looking at different things all day and the only difference I have found between the two are the results I get from running rpm -q --verify coreutils. Running that on my prodution server returns nothing. Results from my test server are below. Is this what is causing my problems? If so, what's the fix? I haven't found that yet. I've checked /etc/pam.d/su, both servers are the same.
i need to ask you about doing some redirect to some mail messages to other mail server outside my mail server, i need to deploy this feature as the message received by my server.also i need to keep a copy of these messages too.
I have one centOS 5.5 box recieving mails done by fetchmail service and it has a 5 client pc's, is there any way that the CentOS box able to deliver the mails to the 5 local network users that is using thunderbird as MUA.
the mails is stuck in /var/spool/mail as I verified in the webmin sendmail settings
I am trying to login to a redhat server via VNC. This used to work until I reloaded the box. Although I had previously logged in directly to the box, then I could vnc to it remotely. The service is running, netstat states the ports are open and listening.I can ssh to the box, and ran the usual commands to start the services.So my question is. Do I need to have a local user logged in before I can VNC, if so how can I do that via the command line.If this is not required for a local user to be logged in, what am I missing. Other than VNC, which other services do I need to start.
I am using Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS release 4 (Nahant Update 5)and i am using send mail also..The issue is: i am able to send emails from all OS users but unable to send mail from root user.(I am receiving mails if i send mails from all users except root user)what could be the issue?
Is possible to send a message (popup window or something) to local user logged into X (xdm, fluxbox) from console ? For example: user1 is logged and using X/fluxbox, user2 logging into the same box by ssh to console. Now - what user2 have to do to send message to user1 ?
I was doing some rather lengthy procedures using a terminal. Then I wrote script using Kate, and input it into that terminal, and then realized that I was logged in as a normal user in that terminal as opposed to a superuser, which is how I was logged in at the other terminal. I've never noticed this before because I've never done anything that takes this long.
Is there any way to link all terminal sessions in such a way that they all show me logged in as the same user? I don't even know if this is even important, but I don't want to risk losing any things that I had done.
Using opensuse 11.1 64 bit with kde 4.1.3, apps like k3b, or any multimedia apps can not see the optical drives unless I run the apps as root. I also found that to run bladeenc, I have to do it in a root terminal. Is there a way to set permissions for the normal user? Firefox or any text editor work fine as normal user.
I have installed Oracle Database server in Red Hat Linux for the first time. I edited the .bash_profile first time & defined some parameters like "export ORACLE_SID =orcl".I quit the editing. Then When I entered ". .bash_profile" it got error " not a valid identifier" it shows like "bash: export: '=orcl' : not a valid identifier for all the lines I edited it shows same error beacause I think I put a space in between "ORACLE_SID" & "=orcl".
So when I tried to edit that using "vi .bash_profile" being a normal user. It doesn't allow me editing.when I try to delete that space (because I think I have got error) using Backspace key on my computer,,it just moves the cursor to left in stead of deleting that space.
I have just installed VirtualBox on my OpenSuSE 11.1 and created my first VM (Windows XP) - and everything works just fine, but.... I can only run it as user root (if I remember correctly I could only install VirtualBox as root)Anybody know what I need to do so that I can run VirtualBox under a normal user account.
When I install a software as root ,everything is ok. But When I install it as other user, I got a error info. ERROR info: (setup_linux32:28652): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display: My host: cat /proc/version Linux version 2.6.18-164.el5(gcc version 4.1.2 20080704 (Red Hat 4.1.2-46)) #1 SMP Tue Aug 18 15:51:54 EDT 2009
I have found so many ways for root user to execute commands in so many possible path locations - but having difficulties on executing commands as normal user - during start up.This is what i've got for /etc/rc.d/rc.local script:Code:su -l user && (/bin/sh svc_cmd.sh &)But the command doesn't run at all...
On a Fedora Core box, I have a normal non-privileged user and I also have sole access to the root account. Because I am the only administrator of this box, I frequently su over to root for administrative tasks. The problem is that many of the user configuration I've become accustomed to are only configured on my day-to-day account (.vimrc, .bashrc, .screenrc, etc). Other than giving my day-to-day user account privileges to perform administration tasks, how would I go about sharing configuration between these two accounts?
i am looking for a detailed description of the login process for both root and normal user , also locally and remotely.i read some sentences that the files .bashrc and bash_profile are needed for this process. But that was very concise.
I have a question that i want to make a normal user to execute the commands which the root user is able to execute, say if i have a user named siru and when i logged in using siru i cannot run commands like tracert,nmap@loccalhost and all but i can run when i have logged into root account so my question is how to make siru to run the command tracert,nmap@localhost.I have even edited the .bash_profile of siru's home directory from
# .bash_profile # Get the aliases and functions if [ -f ~/.bashrc ]; then
I want to simply mount an ext4 file-system onto a normal mount point in Ubuntu (/media/whereever), as read-writable for the current logged-in user, i.e. me.
I don't want to add anything into /etc/fstab, I just want to do it now, manually. I need super-user privileges to mount a device, but then only root can read-write that mount. I've tried various of the mount options, added it into fstab, but with no luck.
I recently installed FC14 as my server and is able to ssh and vnc into the server when locally logged in. If i logged out (at login screen) then i cant ssh or vnc into the server. It is pointless to have a server if i am not able to remote in via ssh and vnc.
I have recently installed Opensuse 11.4 on my desktop. And also upgraded my gnome-2 to gnome-3. Its works nice and I am enjoying it. Only the biggest problem I am facing is, if I lock the screen and leave my desk for couple of hours then user gets logged out automatically. Which is resulting all the documents and applications gets closed. I am unable to work in my desktop now.
How come you can shut down or reboot from the gui w/o needing root privelages, but if I enter "shutdown -h now" on the command line I am met with "shutdown: Need to be root".
Also- somewhat unrelated to my first question- I recall when I first started Ubuntu-ing, if I wanted to shut down or reboot while another user was logged in, I'd need to enter my password- but it doesn't do that anymore. Two users can be logged in with multiple applications open, and if I reboot or shutdown, it just goes for it? (using 9.04, for now...)
when I log in, I can move the mouse, but nothing else. The whole user interface is unresponsive and absolutely no keystroke works. It is probably not because of my hardware (hp 2710p) because logging in as root (with only slightly different Gnome configuration) does work well. I assume it is because of some error inside the Gconf. There is always an error when starting Gnome that an entry could not be read, including some bunches of ~30 question marks. If it is useful, I can give you the whole message literally.
I haven't changed data inside Gconf, but I did have it open when I was installing a program, and then the console did show the message with the question marks for the first time (while processing some "trigger" post-install). I think the program I was installing was drapes (for changing desktop wallpapers in Gnome). Strangely Gnome did startup correctly afterwards for a couple of times (always showing the above-mentioned error). I have no idea what change made it suddenly stop working yesterday.
The differences in Gnome configuration between the working root and the unresponsive user account are, as far as I can tell from memory: changed theme (elegant-brit), wallpaper, fonts, globalmenu in the panel, installed - added to panel - uninstalled drapes.The rest is the same for the root account. I can still log in to the shell as the normal user, but "startx" leads to the disabled graphical interface. As I said, the graphical interface works well when I use the root shell. I can't access the internet from the user shell unfortunately (if I need to, I will figure out how to set up wlan in the shell).
