OpenSUSE Install :: RSA Key Authentication With 11.3

Dec 3, 2010

I've got a server that was running 11.0 and was set up so that a number of other machines could connect to it via ssh without needing a password by using rsa key authentication. This has worked for a couple of years without problem. I have just progressively upgraded 11.0->11.1, 11.1->11.2 and 11.2->11.3 so now I'm running 11.3 and the above authentication is not working.

My logs show the errors gkr-pam: couldn't get the password from user: Conversation error error: ssh_msg_send: write pam_unix2(sshd:auth): conversation failed error: ssh_msg_send: write

when the automated logins are attempted. Are there any configuration changes that need to be made to get this to work again with 11.3?

OpenSUSE Install :: Authentication Failed - During The OS Installation

Jun 3, 2010

I wanted to install it on a secondary computer in my house for web browsing and little-to-nothing more.

How can I fix or get around the error 'Authentication failed' when attempting to login?

I just installed openSUSE. The installation seemed to go well. After installation, everything loaded up and I was using the OS with no problems.

I restarted the computer to change my boot sequence in the BIOS. Then I got to the openSUSE login screen. I was presented with three options:

1. my username - When I enter in the password I specified during the OS installation it says "Authentication failure"

2. Automatic Login - just says "Permission denied"

3. Other... - Nothing seems to work here

How can I login?

OpenSUSE Install :: GUI "Authentication Failed" 11.0?

May 23, 2010

I am on openSUSE 11.0 with kernel System has been working well for many months. Today I boot and attempts to login through the GUI as any user (including root) fail, presenting the message: Authentication failed However, the machine is running. If I switch to a console using Alt-F1 I can login as a user and su to root. Also, samba is working and a Windows machine can connect to shares as it has for some time. I have been looking around the net for some way that the GUI might have been configured for a different authentication, such as LDAP, that I am not running. There are many places to find the GUI tools described, but I cannot find one that describes command line configuration.

Do you think this authentication reconfiguration might be the problem? If so, how can I tell and how can I change it? What has changed most recently is that yesterday I installed the Google Chrome browser. Appeared to install correctly and was working.

Security :: Make A Choice On What Authentication Protocol To Use For Authentication And Authorization?

Jan 17, 2011

I need to make a choice on what authentication protocol I want to use for Authentication and Authorization. I was looking at Radius and then literature suggested that Diameter was a better protocol. Keep in mind I need this on a hetrogeneous setup ( linux & windows together). Diameter seemed like a good fit until I discovered that the open source code no longer seems to be maintained ( C/C++).

I was also looking at Kerberos as an option though there is alot overhead with the server. SSL/TLS or EAP? I am looking for simple but secure and am new at the security protocols.

OpenSUSE :: Weird Bug With The Authentication When Updating?

Apr 1, 2011

Since I installed the 11.4, I have a weird bug when I do the update process (in GUI).Though it doesn't prevent the updates to install, it is a little annoying. When I click the accept button to apply the updates, I get the usual authentication dialog. I input my password and then I get the same dialog but without the field to enter the password. If I click the Authenticate button, the dialog doesn't shut and the update doesn't proceed. But if I click the close button in the title bar, the dialog shuts and the update proceed. I never had this second dialog appearing in both the 11.2 and 11.3.

OpenSUSE :: PackageKit Authentication Fails Without Asking?

Aug 3, 2011

The first time PackageKit Update Applet ran, it asked me for the root passwordI accidentally pressed enter after making a typo, and ever since then Update Appletfails rror:Authorization failedYou have failed to provide correct authentication.Please check any passwords or account settings.Failed to obtain authentication. It never lets me input a new password. Two questions:1) Am I doing something wrong, or is this actually a bug? The possibility has been mentioned in other posts on the topic.2) Where does PackageKit store its files? I'll either change the password myself or delete the file where it's written, hopefully that will trigger PackageKit to ask again.

OpenSUSE :: KMail Sends It's Authentication String?

Feb 23, 2010

I just installed my version of 11.2 and am slowly setting up the software I need to make my Windows box an expensive paperweight. I recently set up my KMail to receive mail on my POP3 acct. I only recently had reason to send an email to myself at work to remind me to do something. When I hit send this is what I got:


And it was in the clear. hmmmm. Is this how KMail sends it's authentication string? I have never really looked at SMTP or POP packets so maybe they all send them like this but I was a bit shocked when it came up like that. What if someone had been looking over my shoulder?

OpenSUSE :: XFCE Update Applet Authentication?

Using XFCE with OpenSUSE 11.3. XFCE's Update Applet runs without superuser privileges. It finds updates without problems, but when I try to install them, it reports that it failed to authenticate or something like that. I have to start YaST Online Update module in order to install the updates. Is it possible to enable XFCE Update Applet to prompt for superuser authentication or to directly use YaST Online Update as panel applet, like in KDE?

OpenSUSE Network :: Authentication In Windows Domain ?

I'm trying in the company where I work to persuade my co-partners to move slowly into the world of linux, but because everything are set up on Windows is quite difficult. Though I can install at least in one PC openSuse or Ubuntu (I prefer openSuse), but the problem is that I have to find a way to make the authentication to a Windows Domain, which is running Windows Server 2003.

How is this possible? Is this procedure painless or I have to read a lot of staffs in order to make it work? I would be obliged if you could give me some steps on how to do it. I can't stand windows any more

OpenSUSE Wireless :: GTC For PEAP Authentication In WPA2?

Sep 20, 2010

So my university has two wireless servers that students can log into: VCU and VCU SafeNet. The regular VCU server works fine in most areas on campus but the library which I imagine I would be spending most of my time in between classes to do work and such. The connection quality for the unsecured server sucks ass there, and I do not use that term lightly. Other students have found success connecting in the library through the SafeNet server and the tech support man in the library was very nice in helping me setting up the security rules to connect to SafeNet in openSUSE.

However, I lack one little thing that would get me internet connection on crack at the library: GTC authentication for PEAP in WPA2. I did some research and found that GTC has not been implemented in the GUI of KNetworkManager even though it was implemented in NetworkManager. The guide that the tech support man printed out for me was for some earlier version of Ubuntu, so I know NetworkManager has had GTC support for a while now and KNetworkManager is still lacking this. I also found a patch for KNetworkManager, but have had no luck implementing it.
