Ubuntu Networking :: How To Check System Information In Terminal

Aug 4, 2011

i have been using ubuntu for just over 3 months now and i completely love it. but heres where the problem starts (and please let me know if i am in the right topic) i recently installed ubuntu 10.10 on my roommates computer, the reason being is that the IT department here on college "fixed it" for him, now it wont connect to the internet. it will however connect if we use an ethernet cable from the other laptop to his. his had originally windows xp then got upgraded to vista. i was wondering if there was a way to completely reset the networking wifi card if that might be the problem.

my roommates computer is a DakTech PlaidBook, however i do not know on how to check the system information in the terminal to tell you what wifi card he has and such, all i want is to have internet back on his computer again.

Ubuntu Networking :: Check The Network Connection Applet, It Display Active Information Of Eth0?

Jun 7, 2010

I have a question regarding the configuration of Network Connection. My wired connection is fine right now and when I check the network connection applet, it display active information of eth0. However, when I click the Configure button, the Network Connection window appears but there's nothing in the Wired panel. Should there be a eth0 in that panel? I remember I had one before, but after I messed with some configuration of VPN, my network became unstable and I remove the Network Manager to try to solve the problem. Since then, there's nothing in my Network Connection window, though I can still connect to my router with eth0. Now even after I reinstalled the Network Manager, I still don't get anything.

Fedora :: How To Access The Drive Information

Nov 22, 2010

I have a VM setup with Fedora r14 installed. I've installed openssh-5.5p1-23.fc14.2 with hopes of setting up an SFTP connection so that I can access my files off site. Actually I want to share some of my files with my mother but using a secure way of doing it.

I've got everything setup and it's working. I've even chrooted / jailed the user accounts so they can only see what they need to. I have an external HDD I've connected formated as FAT32, or so I believe since i can't check it now that it's format is listed as RAW due to me messing with the drive whilst connected to fedora and it fubar'd my format, and now that's another problem that I'm just now finding out as I'm writing this.

So if I manage to get my files back up on the drive, which I should be able to with a util I've used for this problem before, is it possible to access the drive information if I 'mount --bind' the drive, which I did before? Just so you know I can see the folder listing through WinSCP, but when I try to access it, it tells me denied. I've read that linux cant work with FAT drives and isn't able to set perms so I believe the reason why I can't access the contents is because it's set for 700 and besides the owner, which I'm not when I'm accessing them, I can't access the content.

Fedora :: Need Terminal Command For System Information

Jul 22, 2010

I'm sure this answer is out there but I cannot find it. I thought there was a command you could put in the terminal to find out what version of Fedora you are running and also tell which architecture (either 32 bit or 64 bit) it is. Does anyone know what that command is?

Fedora Security :: Tweaks For Storing Information In Ram?

Nov 19, 2010

I've been looking for a tweak that would allow me to store temp and log files in ram. I've found a few that involved editing the fstab file, but they were either Ubuntu articles or they were over a year old and perhaps didn't apply to Fedora 14.I hear there is also a 'noatime' command that can help speed up processes by telling the kernel not to saved when files are accessed.And what are the advantages and disadvantages of noatime, and writing log/tmp files to ram?

Fedora Servers :: Setting Up A FTP / P2P - Mount Point Information

Aug 19, 2011

I have just been gifted with a Linux dedicated server for the next six months, with an option to renew after that time has expired, and I'd like to set it up for FTP/P2P use. I do have some familiarity with Fedora from work, but only as a pre-installed desktop OS. The company providing the server has asked me to choose a OS, so of course I picked the one with which I already have some knowledge. They've also asked me to provide partition and mount point information, and it's here that I'm having some problems. I've spent most of my free time today reading everything I could about partitioning for a server, and I'm still not comfortable making this decision on my own.

The server comes with two drives - one 500GB and one 1TB, and 8GB RAM. My thinking is to use the 500GB drive for the OS, and the 1TB for media storage. I know I still have a good bit of learning to do, but I just want to get the blasted thing set up so I can get on with the hands-on part of figuring out how it works.

Fedora Networking :: 10 DNS Information Gets Lost After Changing IP Address To Static

Feb 21, 2009

I am using Fedora 10 and when I first installed my machine, I had a DHCP assigned address to my network card. Later on I decided that I wanted to give my machine more of a server role, so I switched to static IP using the system-config-network utility. What happened after that was that I did change the IP address and routing information, but DNS information gets lost at every reboot, so I need to type it back again.

Debian :: Migration Check List - To Check - Prepare Or Reconfigure

Feb 3, 2010

I am new to Debian but not Linux-based systems. I have been experimenting a lot with Debian Lenny/Squeeze. I am growing more comfortable each day with the Debian design. Yet there remain many unexplored areas. I am creating a migration check list. Things to check, prepare, or reconfigure when moving from one Linux-based system to Debian.

I have a good computer background and my current check list probably is fairly good. Yet I would appreciate input and opinions from experienced Debian users of things to watch in such a migration. Login defs, passwd/group files, different directory locations, keymaps, services and daemons, etc. I am not too concerned with the desktop as I plan to stick with KDE 3.5 for a while and I can basically move those settings across.

Fedora Installation :: Update Media's Repo Information To Reflect Some Of Updated Packages

May 13, 2011

I am creating custom install media using the Fedora Core 14 DVD as a base and I have gathered all of the packages and their dependencies I require using the yumdownloader command.I made sure to download the @core group along with the ones listed above. The problem I'm running into is that I don't know how to update the media's repo information to reflect some of the updated packages I have downloaded. So when I go to install on the device, it's saying it can't read/open a certain package and you can see that it's looking for an older version because I'm guessing its repo is telling anaconda that this is the specific version to look for. I'm looking for a way to "update" the repo found on the installation media.

Fedora Installation :: Boot Prompt Information Read Automatically From Isolinux.cfg Without User Intervention?

Oct 4, 2009

building an install cd or dvd media that will automatically install the Linux software on a client pc. There is no network connectivity so the client can only be loaded with Linux from CD or DVD media. The crux of the matter is that I can not automatically install the Linux software on client WITHOUT typing linux ks=cdrom:/ks.cfg at the boot prompt.

I want to avoid any user prompts and just have the software install with the RPMS that I need for this client pc at the boot prompt. Actually, when the boot prompt commences, I would like the software install to start with no user intervention. I've tried several different methods in isolinux.cfg, but the OS always wants boot prompt for the cdrom. Can the boot prompt information be read automatically from the isolinux.cfg with out user intervention? I'm looking for the same behavior as a LIVE CD that kicks off with no boot prompts after a few seconds. Here's a copy of my isolinux.cfg

default linux
prompt 1
timeout 600
display boot.msg
F1 boot.msg
F2 options.msg
F3 general.msg
F4 param.msg

Fedora Networking :: Kmanager-vpnc Vpn Key Lifetime Limit - GUI Doesn't Provide A Location To Enter Information

Jan 6, 2011

I am using KNetworkmanager-vpnc to VPN back to the office from home, the vpn connection works fine - for 15 minutes then I am disconnected. I am fairly certain that this is related to the Phase 1 key lifetime limit. The Knetworkmanager-vpnc GUI does not provide a location to enter this information. I think I found the config file that holds the connection information at /home/<user>/.kde/share/apps/networkmanagement/connections/ I just don't know the proper syntax to put in the file to specify a key life limit. Anyone out there know how to do this? I am using Fedora 14 x64 with knetworkmanager-vpnc 1.0.9-0.28.
