OpenSUSE Install :: Pam_ldap Username Case Sensitivity On 11.2

Sep 8, 2010

It seems pam_ldap in 11.2 is not case insensitive anymore when it comes to checking usernames with uid from ldap.It is working fine on 11.1 though (both systems with latest updates up to now)(I didn't try 11.3 yet)On our ldap server (which is out of my control), the usernames are not unified, some are all in lowercase and some are capitalized, but on our Linux servers we have all usernames in lowercase.

Since our upgrade to 11.2, the users that their uid on ldap server does not match exactly to the username on Linux servers can not login anymore. Is there any option to change this behavior and force pam_ldap to be case-insensitive or convert uid/usernames to lowercase?
or all of a sudden pam_ldap decided to become case sensitive!?

General :: Disable Case Sensitivity For Slackware?

Feb 19, 2010

How you disable it? it makes no sense you have to type all those non capital and capital letters just to access a directory correctly.

in windows you just type the name and it detects whatever you type capital or not...

General :: Flag - Option To Discard Case Sensitivity To Find Package Installed Or Not?

Aug 25, 2009

Is there a flag or option to discard case sensitivity to find whether package is installed or not?



Note, however, that RPM is a bit picky about specifying package names. Here are some queries for the C library that won't work:

rpm -q libc-5.2.1
Let say I want to find out whether PyQt is installed or not but not sure the exact case, i.e. pyqt or Pyqt or ....

is there a way to find whether a package is installed or not without knowing its case exactly?

OpenSUSE Install :: Cannot Login Under An Username

Apr 25, 2010

Been using 11.2 for a couple of months now, mostly I've solved my own problems or read from some preexisting already solved problems on threads like these. But, I'm not even sure where to start with this one. I cannot login under my main username, the account is set to autologin, and I get the login screen instead. When I attempt to login I get a black screen for about a second then it bumps me back to the login screen, no error messages. I'm able to login under runlevel 3, but as soon as I try to "init 5" it bumps me out and back to the login screen.

Root account works fine, and I used it to create a secondary account from which I am posting from right now. The behavior started after the system put the display to sleep while I was watching a movie in VLC, I woke it up just as it turned completely black, it hung there and I was forced to hard reboot. Had the problem ever since (for several hours now, lol).

I use Gnome but I installed KDE to see if it would resolve my problem, but no dice.

OpenSUSE Install :: Remove (not Hide) A Username From KDM?

Jun 2, 2010

I know how to go through KDE settings to "hide" a user from the login screen but I want to know where KDM is getting this info from. I've installed OpenSUSE 11.2 x64, configured it the way I like, and now I would like to clone it. Problem is that I logged into my own account while testing FreeNX and now my username shows up on the login screen. I want to remove any information that I logged into this system with an account other than root. I've Googled many times and still have no idea. I currently have two local users, root and user. The rest of my users authenticate and login via LDAP. The name of my LDAP user account is now always displayed on the KDM login screen. I don't want to disable the user list either, I just want to remove my account from the list before I clone the machine.

OpenSUSE Install :: Username Order On Login Screen In 11.2?

Dec 2, 2009

I just moved from openSUSE 11.0 to 11.2.

While I like to new login screen (I was using a face based theme previously), I am stumped on how to control the order that the user names are presented.

As best I can tell, they are presented in the order who logs in most frequently. While that makes a certain amount of sense, I would like to be able to force the list to remain alphabetical.

Is there any way to control this, and if so, where?

Slackware :: Mkisofs -iso-level 1 Converts To Lower Case Instead Of Upper Case?

Oct 28, 2010

Kernel 2.6, Slackware 12.0
mkisofs 2.01

I do 'mkisofs -iso-level 1 -o image John Smith.txt'. Only an example. When I mount image, ls outputs john_smi.txt. So it has shorten to 8.3 and translated ' ' into '_'. This is in accordance with the manual, although it doesn't say the conversion will be done.


-iso-level level
With all iso9660 levels from 1..3, all filenames are restricted to upper case letters, numbers and the underscore (_).

However, as it did not reject the file name, it should have converted it to all upper case, it seems to me. And -iso-level 2|3 does the same thing.


root@darkstar:~# mkisofs -iso-level 1 -o image John Smith.txt
Total translation table size: 0
Total rockridge attributes bytes: 0
Total directory bytes: 0

OpenSUSE Install :: Username Pasword Required At Boot - Command For Startup?

Mar 22, 2011

I just burned the iso of openSUSe 11.4 onto a dvd, and I make it through all of the installation. At the end it reboots the computer and starts in the kernel/command line or whatever you call it. I think it's kernel. Anyway, it asks for my username and password and then it says like "have fun.." () or something and then just has like my directory or whatever waiting for commands. Is there some command to start up the OS?

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Spacenavigator - Change The Sensitivity Settings And Button Functions

Jul 15, 2010

In testing that all my bits of hardware work I have come to my 3Dconnexion SpaceNavigator. The hardware is virtually new and works absolutely fine in XP (that is what I am trying to escape from).

When the spacenavigator is plugged in it works absolutely fine so long as I move the thing with a soft feather. It is so sensitive that it is un-useable.My problem is that although the system has recognised it and has it in the hardware scan in YaST but nowhere can I find any way to change the sensitivity settings and button functions.

OpenSUSE :: Filename Case When Inserting A Camera Memory Card?

May 19, 2011

In short: the files in 11.2 of the memory card from my camera were lower case, and in 11.4 they are upper case. Thus, F-spot uploads all the photos again, and I get two copies of each, one low case (old), another upper case (new), without the comments or rotations that I had made. How can I make the system automount it again in lower case? I knew the proper options to do this manually in fstab, but not via udev or whatever it uses.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Keyboard Won't Type Upper-case Characters?

Mar 14, 2009

Since yesterday I have been having a strange and fairly aggravating keyboard problem. For some reason I am sometimes unable to type upper-case characters. My shift key doesn't behave normally. If I type shift-C, for example, nothing happens; if I try it several times, sometimes the character will eventually appear, sometimes preceded by a ) character. What's worse, some key combinations, such as shift-I, kill the brightness on the screen. After this happens a couple of times, the mouse freezes, and only a reboot will restore it. This does not seem to be remedied by logging out of the session (either gnome or KDE) and into another session. The problem seems to affect both desktop environments.

This problem seems to be intermittent. For example, it seems to be working normally now, but about five minutes ago GNOME gave me a bug reporting window on boot and informed me that the keyboard-switcher panel applet had crashed. I have tried exciting to a console with ctrl-alt-F1 while my keyboard is behaving in this way, and have found that my keyboard does not work correctly in the console either.

I would normally use several keyboard layouts as I need to write in several languages, but I have turned them all off and reset the keyboard control panels to defaults in both environments, and I am still experiencing the problem.

Ubuntu :: Install An Additional Kernel In 10.10 In Case Of A Boot Failure?

Mar 24, 2011

How do I install an additional kernel in Linux Ubuntu 10.10, in case of a boot failure? Also how do I make the Grub Menu Visible, so that I am able to select multiple kernels. There is an older solution below, but is there a way to do this in Linux Ubuntu 10.10. I just suffered an update failure, possibly due to a corrupt kernel upgrade, which made my system unbootable. The cursor just flashed continuously.

Solution of 2007[URL].... "The next obvious rescue aid is to always have a working kernel installed. I usually work from a kernel updated via yum. Kernels have occasionally been released with flaws that have caused one or more of my machines to not boot. To this end, I always make sure I have at least one perfectly running kernel on a machine. A great way to handle this is to first add plugins=1 in your /etc/yum.conf file. The next step is to take this script (written by Jeremy Katz from Red Hat) and save it as in /usr/lib/yum-plugins. You can change the number of kernels to retain on the system by changing the tookeep variable (default = 2).

With a known working kernel on your system, you can upgrade safely. If the new kernel is hosed, simply boot the old kernel to solve the issue with the new kernel be it to remove it, recompile it, or update it."

Debian :: New Install Won't Accept Username & Password?

Jun 20, 2010

I have just completed a debian netinstall, but am stuck at the "Welcome" screen. Though I took careful notes during the install re the "user account" (did not use my name as my purpose is to get the pc running and give it away) and "user password," it will not accept them. I would like to change or edit both (debian isn't telling me which is incorrect). How can this be done?

Also, this is looking for the "user account" - not the root info, right?

If I am forced to reinstall the OS, will I have to go through the entire process (partitions and all)?

Ubuntu :: How To Turn Mouse Sensitivity Down

Apr 4, 2010

Having the hardest time turning the mouse sensitivity down in xfce. Various xset settings make no real difference. I move the mouse under an inch and it covers the entire screen easily. razertool-gtk won't recognize my mouse (also, I couldn't find any documentation at all for it, but maybe I'm just dumb), the xfce settings don't lower it enough, and the last thing I was going to try was to edit my xorg.conf. I though there was supposed to be a mouse section there, and this is all I have in my xorg.conf file:

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Default Screen"
DefaultDepth 24

Section "Module"
Load "glx"
Disable "dri2"

Section "Device"
Identifier "Default Device"
Option "NoLogo" "True"
Driver "nvidia"
