Red Hat / Fedora :: Can't Find Default Program Folder Using Yum
Oct 26, 2010
I installed Freeradius using Yum and then RPM, where the heck does the default program folder get installed and how do you even find it. I did a find . -name free and I come up with nothing. In Windows, I can go to a program respoistory, download a program to the default directory or choose one, launch the installation, and more often than not the program and most of it's components are installed in the 'Programs' directory. It is a pretty consistent, neat, and organized process. Can someone relate how Linux works in comparison? I am not knocking Linux, just trying to understand if there is a consistent method to how it downloads, installs, and stores applications.

I have an FTP account that when they log in they go to /var/ftp/uploads according to etc/passwd.I want to temporarily stop the uploads from coming in, but don't want to change the password on that account. If I rename the uploads folder to something else, what will happen when they go to log in since the /var/ftp/uploads path is no longer valid?
I had originally followed the advice at Mauriat Miranda's Fedora Nvidia Driver Install Guide [URL] for installing nvidia's display driver on my HP Pavilion system 64 bit running Fedora 11. I had used his first method which just installs the relevant kernel module kmod-nvidia from RPMFusion. He also suggested an alternate method: obtaining Nvidia's installer NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-185.18.36-pkg2.run and using that. I downloaded it from Nvidia, but I didn't run it.
I recently lost X. This had happened previously after a kernel upgrade, and I just used grub to boot an earlier kernel to recover X, and then installed the upgraded kernel module to fix the problem. But this time, being deeply involved in something else, I panicked slightly, and, using dumb terminal mode I ran the Nvidia installer. It asked me to make various choices and in response to my answers, it decided to compile a new kernel module. This recovered X, but I then compounded things by installing the updated kmod-nvidia.
I realized afterwards that using both methods might create some conflicts, but X seemed to run properly. (I can tell because graphics in the program Maple doesn't work properly with the default drivers provided by Fedora 11.) Since then, when I restart nvidia, I get.
I have just installed F11 and want to change Nautilus to default Ubuntu and not open each folder in separate window. But I can't go to Edit/Preferences.Nautilus keeps crashing and I get this report:Quote:
I was messing around with fed 12 yesterday (only on a test installation) and i've hit a snag. I installed openbox and tint2, nitrogen, obconf etc so i could have a #!-style session at startup. It all worked fine until i installed pcmanfm and removed nautilus. The problem is that i can't display files in my home directory, either using pcmanfm, a reinstalled nautilus, or in terminals. Every time i try to point a file brower there it just seems to get stuck searching forever, until i kill it. Weirdly in terminator i can do an 'ls' to see visible files, but 'ls -la' causes the problem again.
ps i thought permissions might have something to do with it, so i did a 'chmod -R 777' as root. it changed permissions for quite a lot of the files but then froze again, and now the problem persists.
I just got Karmic running tonight. I need to know how I set a program as default. For instance, if I select a photo or a song and I want a different program than what comes up. Also, is there a user manuel for this os?
I like to use geany for much of my programming (I know people have plenty of opinions on that choice), but I'm using a university computer. On this computer I don't have root access, but I'd still like to install geany. The geany installation requires the intltool package, which you would normally install with root into one of the folders only root has permissions to. So instead I installed it to a folder in my own directory. However, when trying to use geany's ./configure, it doesn't see these files. How do I get geany's configure to check this folder for these files as well?
OpenSuSe 11.4 and KDE 4.6.1: I would like to change the default blue oxygen icon, I went to system settings (now is configure desktop), file association, select inode and directory, click on the icon and change it to the one I like. Click ok, reboot but the blue folder icon is also there, how can I change this icon to one I like better?
Because Remastersys has a size limit for its backups, I exclude the Pictures folder. Therefore, when I do a restore, there is no pictures folder; when I create one, it gets the generic folder icon, rather than the folder icon that is normally associated with the Pictures folder. I know that through properties I can replace the folder icon with anything, but I have not been able to find where the generic pictures folder icon is stored. If I choose a specific icon, and change the icon theme, the custom icon remains. Further, when I make a bookmark for the new Pictures folder, it gets the generic folder icon, no matter what icon is assigned to the Pictures folder. There must be a way to restore the generic Pictures folder icon, so that it changes with the icon theme.
I want multiple users to have full reign to. As a result, this share is already set up with the gid being set, so any files/folders that get written to it are automatically assigned the group "share", to which the users in question are members of this group "share."
The problem is, if Bob creates something, it comes down as bob:share with 755 perms, so Fred cannot write/delete. What it optimal is having 775 perms, but it's hard for an administrator to continually do this over and over when it'd be nice to just automatically set the perms on the fly to 775. How can I change just one folder to default to 775 perms instead of 755?
I have a Windows Partition for my Windows system and another partition for my Ubuntu. All my data is located in another partition called User). What I did, in the home folder, I deleted the default user folders (Documents, Desktop, Videos,...) and created a link to to the folders in the User partition. So for Desktop, I created a link to User/Desktop folder, for Documents, I created a link in my home folder to the 'User/My Documents'. What happens now is that all the symlinks I have created appear in my desktop instead of the Desktop items I have in User/Desktop. Any idea how to restore the default desktop folder? I have removed the link to the User/Desktop in my home folder and created a new folder named Desktop and nothing happens.
When I plugged my phone into my laptop, I was prompted to select a program to launch by default when I plug in again. I selected Picasa for managing my photos. Since selecting that though, I've decided I'd rather have Banshee Media Player open for managing my music. However, I cannot figure out how to change the default. I've searched all over the internet, but cannot seem to find a solution.
I couldn't help but notice that there are some lines in the default file that resemble those that should be in a htaccess file.
AllowOverride None Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews AllowOverride All Order allow,deny allow from all
If I am running multiple virtual hosts, what happens to the default file? When I put my ip into a browser "http://ip.ip.ip.ip" I get a forbidden message. but all URLs point to where they are supposed to... Maybe its because I don't have an index file in the www folder.. (not at the machine, will try it later to see what happens).
I just want to know how the default size of a newly created file or folder is 4.0 kb.Does this value is mentioned in any configuration file,if that is the case can we edit that file and can we change this default value.
I use Deluge as a bittorrent client to download music.However, if--or rather when--other programs like rhythmbox edit the tags in the file (or change the file in anyway) deluge downloads the file againI thought that making the folder which Deluge downloads to a read-only folder would stop this from happening. But I need a way to allow Deluge to still be able to download to this folder.s there a way to do this
I am trying to compile a program with mpicc. To compile I use:
However mpicc's default C compiler is gcc 4.4.2 and I need to use 4.0.0 which I have installed in another directory. I do not (nor can get) root privileges so I cannot edit mpicc's default compiler. Is there an option I can set while configuring?
