General :: Xinit: Permission Denied (errno 13): Unable To Connect To Xserver

I am unable to start my xserver, using the startx command that I have been using for the past 5 years. It goes to the blue loading screen with the x for a cursor, hangs there for about a min or so then goes back to the command screen. I get an error:


giving up. xinit: Permission denied (errno 13): unable to connect to xserver waiting for xserver to shut down xinit: Server error.I have tried logging on as root and trying startx again. Same error.

Ubuntu :: Error: "Note: Cannot Open TUN/TAP Dev /dev/net/tun: Permission Denied (errno=13)"
I have a problem setting up a TUN interface for OpenVPN. Running OpenVPN gives me this error: "Note: Cannot open TUN/TAP dev /dev/net/tun: Permission denied (errno=13)"

Which i tracked down to: "WARNING: Couldn't open directory /lib/modules/2.6.18-164.15.1.el5.028stab068.9: No such file or directory" (if i run /sbin/modproble tun). Does anyone know how to fix this?

Ubuntu Installation :: [Errno 13] Permission Denied: U'C:\ubuntu\install\ubuntu-10.04-desktop-amd64.iso'
I'm new to Linux, so I decided to try using Wubi to get started. THe problem is, when it finished installing 10.04, I got this message: OSError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: u'C:\ubuntu\install\ubuntu-10.04-desktop-amd64.iso' Is there any way around this? It might just be that overly restrictive thing called Vista (which I have the bad luck to be using). I was considering getting a USB drive for Ubuntu anyway..

OpenSUSE :: Ssh Permission Denied \ Connect To Web Host Via Ssh?
I am trying to connect to my web host via ssh. I can do this on Windows using Putty without issue. However, if I run this on Linux, I receive a "permission denied" when I am prompted for my login and password. It's obviously making some type of connection, otherwise it wouldn't be prompting me for authentication.I initially thought this was a firewall issue.I opened up port 22 and I even tried disabling the firewall altogether.However, I still received this error.

Ubuntu Installation :: Unable To Complete 10.04 Install 'Permission Denied'
I'm trying to install Ubuntu on an Aspire laptop with Windows XP. I downloaded 10.04 and burned an ISO image. I boot Windows and open the ISO disk. I open the first choice which is to try Ubuntu prior to a complete installation. The installation starts and proceeds for a few minutes. Then it stops and displays a message 'Permission Denied' and a suggestion to check the installation log. The last few lines are:

CentOS 5 :: Su: Unable To Open Admin Password File: Permission Denied
when I try to su, with the right password I know it is because I have reset it with a sudo, it says su: incorrect password. Looking at /var/log/messages I see su: Unable to open admin password file: Permission denied. This must mean that the file has incorrect permissions and or owner/group. I am wondering if anyone knew where the file was located and the correct permissions/owner/group.

OpenSUSE :: Traceroute Broken In 11.4 - Unable To Create ICMP Send Socket: Permission Denied?
Code: # traceroute -I Note: the -i and -I options were exchangedfor compability with LBL traceroute Use -I for ICMP, and -i <ifname> to specify the interface name unable to create ICMP send socket: Permission denied Note that the command was done as root. This worked in 11.3.

And yes, it works without the "-I". But it should work with the "-I". One shouldn't have to boot into Windows, just to run "tracert" there.

General :: ./configure - Permission Denied
When i try to do "./configure" (i was going to install "lame") the system tells me im not permitted (even if i am root) i tried to change the bash to /bin/ash and /bin/sh and /usr/bin/rbash but nothing worked.

If i skip ./configure and try directly "make" and then "make install" it seems to work. At least i can call "lame" to work. So, is "./configure" really necessary or is there maybe another reason is it okay if i go straight ahead with "make"?

General :: Permission Denied As The Root
The root user of Linux doesn't have permission to read/write a regular file, unless all users have permission to read/write this file, like below:

drwxrwsrwx ....... file_name

However the owner of the file can still read/write this file.


0) not the problem of execution, just read/write
1) not the problem of device because regular user can read/write it.
2) the result of command id:

uid=0(root) gid=0(root) groups=0(root)

so I don't think it's the problem of group.

General :: ACL - Permission Denied / Resolve This?
I'm hoping someone can help me out with this issue I'm having using acl(s). I have a user I want to grant access to logs I have stored on my server. I am doing this by setting up an acl to that directory where the logs are stored. My settings seem to look fine, however I cannot read or even reach the directory with the said user; we'll call him "userP".
Here is my code:

To ensure userP has access to the parent directory (jboss) code...

Not sure what I'm doing wrong here: there are no errors in the logs; just "Permission denied" however I try to get to the directory.
Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong?

General :: Hosts.allow - Permission Denied
After I type sshd: : allow and

sshd : ALL : Deny

I can't access hosts.allow or deny any more.

It says "Permission denied"

Before I typed that, I can access hosts.allow and deny.

By the way, I was wondering what command to edit hosts.allow.

For example, I want to put sshd: : allow in that file.
