General :: Display Password Policy Information For A User - Ubuntu?

Jun 9, 2010

Ubuntu Documentation > Ubuntu 9.04 > Ubuntu Server Guide > Security > User Management states that there is a default minimum password length for Ubuntu:

Say the password is to be modified by the user using passwd. Is there a command for displaying the current password policies for a user (such as the chage command displays the password expiration information for a specific user)?

This is rather than examining various places that control the policy and interpreting them since the process could contain errors. A command that reports the composed policy would be used to check the policy setting steps.

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 :: Display 'sleep' Ignoring User's Settings?

Aug 8, 2011

installed Fedora 14 on my desktop a couple of days ago. For the most part, it seems to be fine, but I've got a problem with the 'put display to sleep when inactive for' setting. From the desktop, I've tried going to system/preferences/power management, where I've set the display to go to sleep when inactive for 30 minutes - however, it instead goes to sleep after five minutes. The same applies whether I set it to 10m, 30m, 1hr or never.

Having looked online, someone mentioned gconf-editor as a fix to another issue, so I decided to give that a try as well. Under /apps/gnome-power-manager/timeout, I tried setting sleep_display_ac, sleep_display_battery and sleep_display_ups each to 1800 ("The amount of time in seconds before the display goes to sleep" - 30mins, by my maths) on the off-chance that the OS had incorrectly detected the power source, but the display again went to sleep after five minutes.

If it makes any difference, I'm not using a screensaver, and I think the kernel I have installed is (that's what's given in System Monitor). I've also tried running yum update, again just on the off-chance it'd fix something, but everything is up to date.

Ubuntu :: Display Info On CPU Temp & Other Sensor Information?

Dec 17, 2010

Is there a Linux application which can display motherboard and CPU sensor information and which also satisfies one other, absolutely key, requirement: It should be directly usable, after installation, by a reasonably intelligent computer application user. That is, it does NOT require deep internal knowledge of specific hardware or obscure system software customisation. It does not require hours, days or weeks of reading of documentation which is so crafted as to be the antithesis of end-user guides. It must be capable of being invoked easily.

This eliminates all software that the Ubuntu Software Centre lists when performing a search with the term 'sensors', with the exception of xsensors. All other software listed with this search installs without error but is then totally invisible to me - not even listed under 'installed software'. I am aware a key requirement to be a Linux developer is an advanced commitment to play games of 'I bet I can make my software harder to use than yours', but I'm too old for that now. I don't have a need to prove how technically capable I am.

Xsensors installs and tells me where it can be found, but is inadequate as it lists only 2 CPU core temperature readings. It does not give me any indication of motherboard temperature or fan speeds. That's all I want to do - get a simple snapshot of sensor values without having to resort to entering BIOS setup. It's the sort of information that is so easily available using the ASUS-supplied 'asus-probe' software under Windows. Is it possible, given the key requirement previously mentioned?

Networking :: Create A Script To Display DNS And IP Address Information?

Jan 5, 2011

I have been playing with Linux consistently for a couple of months now. I've been a Windows sys. admin for most of my career, so Linux is pretty strange for me. I started off with computers way back with the TRS-80 and then eventually moved to DOS systems. So the command line interface (CLI) of Linux was not completely alien to me, yet my lack of knowledge on the syntax and commands is holding me back. I have come a long way.

Recently I needed to play around with some DNS settings and one of the commands I used frequently in Windows, IPCONFIG /ALL, doesn't have a direct relative that displayed the same information. If you run ifconfig, it doesn't return the DNS servers you are currently using. You have to run a separate command to retrieve that information.

What I have done is created a super simple script that displays the network information for my primary LAN adapter, which is ETH0 in my case. After that, it shows the domain and name server information. Then it pauses for 20 seconds before closing the terminal window.

Here are the contents of the script file:

ifconfig -a eth0
cat /etc/resolv.conf
sleep 20

I simply right-clicked the Linux desktop, choose Create Document, Empty File. I named it something like Network Info. Then I opened it and put this information in it, saved it, and closed it. I renamed the file and added a .sh extension to the end which makes it into a script file. Next, right-click the script and go to properties. In the Permissions tab, check the box next to Execute: Allow executing file as a program. Then click close.

To run the script, just double-click the icon and then click Run In Terminal at the prompt. The terminal window opens, displays the information, and exits after 20 seconds. If you need it longer than that or need a different interface (such as wlan0 for your wireless), you can change or even add that in.

This was all done in Ubuntu 10.10. I know it is very simple and very straight forward and welcome thoughts and feedback about simpler ways to do this. For me, the old-school Windows admin, it's a baby step in the right direction. I am really enjoying learning the Linux OS.

Red Hat / Fedora :: RHEL 4 Exceed Login Shows Display But Can't Log In As User, Only Root?

I've checked gdmsetup and there isn't anything that I can see that keeps my general users from getting in remotely. I can get the Gnome to login as root but not as a user. SSH from PuTTY works fine for all users. The error I get actually says that the username or password is incorrect - checked using SSH and it is fine.

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.

Programming :: Get Real Time Information About How Many User Are Logged In And Their Ips

Jan 20, 2009

I use tomcat as my server platform in Ubuntu for a war file. I know in order to get real time information about how many user are logged in, we can count how many active sessions exist by a SessionCounter code. However, I have to permit HttpSessionListener in web.xml of tomcat. From other users' experiences, the configuration is complexed and has some errors.

Here's the link:


In order to get users'ip, in jsp, use request.getremotehost() or request.getremoteaddress() by editing the jsp file. I wonder if there's some open source software to use for these two purposes.

General :: Write A Script To Report Useful Information On Disk Utilization For Each User's Home Directory

Feb 27, 2010

I need to write a script to report useful information on disk utilization for each user's home directory.For each directory I need to show: 1. the long listing of that directory entry (but not the files in the directory), so that I can see the rights and owners of the directory.2. The amount of disk used by that directory, in human-readable format, including subdirectories. I need to have two lines for each user one after the other. For example:

/home/user1 directory info
/home/user1 disk usage
/home/user2 directory info
/home/user2 disk usage

The script will assume that all users, except user root, have their home directories in the /home directory (no need to do anything with the /etc/passwd file). And if the administrator adds or removes users, the script should still work correctly (so the script shows the information for all current users).

Here's what I do know. The command "ls -ld /home/user's_name" will give me the info I need for #1. And the command "du -hs" will give me the info I need for #2. What I don't know is how to grab each individual directory in order to apply the above commands to each of them in order. ???

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.2 - User Information Entered At The Beginning Of The Install Gets Lost

Jan 2, 2010

When trying to install 11.2 from DVD, the user information I entered at the beginning of the install gets lost. I get to the Automatic Configuration step at the end of the install where the computer needs to reboot, and it asks for my user ID and password (it shouldn't do that). It won't accept the user I created (always says login failed), but it will accept root. That really doesn't matter, because the Automatic Configuration step has done anything, and I have a busted install. I've tried the install 4 or 5 times, but it is always the same problem. I eventually reinstalled 11.1 without any problem (though I did have to click Use Entire Disk on the partition section so it would delete the ext4 partitions created by the 11.2 install and create ext3 partitions).
