SUSE :: Unable To Login Under User Account - Call To Lnusertemp Failed (temporary Directories Full?)
Oct 3, 2008
After a reboot, I am unable to login under my user account (mike). I am only able to login as the root user. I am running OpenSuse 11.0, KDE 4.1.2. This is a recent installation (about 2 weeks ago) and everything has been normal until today. When I installed the OS I created my user account "mike" with the password to be the same as the root user. I had also disabled the login screen so that I would automatically be logged in. There is no "login failed" message, I just do not move pass the login screen. If I purposefully type the wrong password, I then get a "login failed" message.
I have gone into Yast under my root account and changed the password for my user account. I still had the same problems - unable to get pass the login screen. I also created a second user and when I login as the second user, I do get pass the login screen only to see a black screen with a message box in the upper left corner that says: "Call to lnusertemp failed (temporary directories full?). Check your installation."
opensuse 11.1 64 bit NVIDIA 180.22 yesterday i update my kde from 4.13 to 4.2. Before i install kde 4.2 ,i disable all repo about 4.13 and remove kde 4.13 .using one-click installer,i install kde 4.2 successfully.but i can not login my account in kde session. it says "call to lnusertemp faild (temporary directories full?)..."
I had a fresh install of Slackware 13.1 up and running. I was looking to use an app which could only run on a gnome distro. So I installed gnomeslackbuild. Ran into dependency hell so I gave up the ghost and decided to reinstall.Re-install resulted in a message "Call to lnusertemp failed(temporary directories full).Had this before a different machine and sorted with another install at the time.Tried this but it keeps coming up with the same message. (4 installs later).Quote:
xset: bad font path element (#23) possible causes are: Directory does not exist or has wrong permissions Directory missing fonts.dir
I've upgraded to 13.1 from 13.0 but can't startx. I get this error; 'call to lnusertemp failed (temporary directories full?)'
When I ctl-alt-backspace there are numerous messages including these two; '/usr/bin/kde4-config: symbol lookup error:/user/lib/libkdecore.so.5: undefined symbol: _zn9qlistdatadetach3ev. and startkde: error: could not locate lnusertemp in /usr/bin/startkde: line 302::command not found.
Linux 13.0 worked OK right out of the "box" so I don't understand why this version has this problem. Was something changed from 13.0 to 13.1?
I created an account using the following command:#useradd -g developers john and successfully changed the user password with:#passwd johnThe user is unable to login using the New Password using SSH. As a root I can login (#su - john) with no problem.
If I'm getting good at anything with Fedora, it would be making mistakes. I have Fedora 12 installed and it was running fine until I attempted to set the path in bashrc and cshrc for jdk. Now I am unable to login using the only user account I created at install. When I enter my password the login screens goes blank then my mouse pointer appears with the circling dashed loading symbol for a few secs and then brings me back to the login screen asking for my password again.
Recently I deleted files from my root/share folder in an attempt to remove a program which had made the system virtually unusable. Upon reboot of the system I accessed the partition I had just edited and I found that I was unable to login using the login manager, every time I hit login it just returns me to the same screen displaying the message: unable to start session.
I am having Opensuse 11.0. Recently I upgraded my system including kernel. Now I am unable to login in X as user. However I can login as root and working perfectly. I can login as user in failsafe as well as after pressing ctrl-alt-f1 when login screen appears.I have tried following---1. Emptied /temp folder and 2. deleting and adding user.
I want to automaticly set the group ownership of user home directories to a group that the user is not part of. This is so that Apache can be part of this group and can access user public HTML directory, but other users are not able to access in any way the files in the users home directory. What I have seen that works manually is adding the user and then changing the group for the home directory. But I want to automatically set this when the user account is created. WHat I see happening is that when /etc/skel is copied, it automatically sets the group and ownership of everything to the users default group and ownership. I've seen some suggestions on setting permissions, but these don't seem to work because it seems that users are able to cd into a directory and not list it, but if they know the file name they can access the file.
I need to create a user account for a software developer. I am logged in as an administrator and was planning on using the 'useradd' command to add the developer. Where should I place his folder in the directory hierarchy?He will need to access the gcc compiler to do his development.
I am running a VPS of CentOS. clock command doesn't work.[174-37-247-102.lx-vs.net ~]# clock hwclock is unable to get I/O port access: the iopl(3) call failed. How to solve the problem? I have tried "timeconfig" and set to New York and System Clock uses UTC and restart the server but it was not useful.
I'm having trouble setting up a vsftp server correctly. What I want to do is allow a number of users to log on (no anonymous user) and each of them to be taken to their own "top level directory" from which they can not escape.
I've got most of this working, but I can't find a way to automatically transfer each user to *their* working area. The "local_root" directive doesn't quite do what I want as everybody has to share the same working area (potentially users could interfere with each other). On the other hand I don't want each user to work from their home directory because there are loads of special files there that I don't want users playing with.
To add one extra compilation, I'm also running an html server on the same machine. One of the directories the html server can see is one of the ftp area root directories (So what I'm trying to do is give one special user ability to ftp files onto the html server. Other users must *NOT* have this ability)
I just installed opensuse 11.1 with only the standard user account, not root account. Therefore, my question is regarding this ... is safe running linux with no root account? Should I create a root account for adminstrative purposes? If so, how can I do that?
I'm looking for a script that can do two things: (1) determine the shortname of the user with the largest account in /Users and (2) look up their full/long name. I'm going to use this script to help identify who the user on a computer and while I know that's possible that a sometime-user may have a larger account than the normal-user on any given computer, the results of a script should be sufficient in most cases for my needs.I'm not sure the best way to around this. I know that can use "du -m -d1 /Users" as root:
root on torchwood [ ~ ]$ du -m -d1 /Users 157 /Users/admin
I am a new Linux user and have a question about the administrative authentication. When I am logged in as a user and I need to do something that requires root privileges the little password window comes up and I enter the root password. My question is how long are the root privileges granted for?I noticed that a few minutes after finishing checking out the firewall configuration tool and closing the window that I was still able to re-enter the fire wall tool and other administrative tools. How do I log out of the root privileges without logging out and then back into my account?
I recently made a computer for someone who decided to get a new one instead.. so i thought i'd make a server out of it lk i had it before. so i deleted their account (while on their account) and made me an account.. but now when i try to login to my account it's.. not there? such as when i type my username and pass it says i entered an invalid user/pass. any idea how i can get my user accounts back or atleast logon to this system? i know the root password if there's any way i can login under the root account.
I want to create an unprivileged user account, say 'shutdown', which can be used only to shutdown the system. I followed the instructions in ut when I login into the system, I get this error 'Cannot execute /usr/bin/sudo /sbin/shutdown -h now: No such file or directory'.These are the configurations that I did
/etc/sudoers: Code: shutdown localhost=/sbin/shutdown -h now
Network server to administer accounts for all users, one login ie at login select or type in user name and password to login - so that I don't have to setup users separately on all PC's so that they can login from any computer.
i m not able to create new user account to my new install of 11.2 don't know whether it occured due to update problem or some installation failure. when creation a new profile through yast it gives a warning sub-domain not started and quits however a new user get added through cli but with no profile of its own. that user cant log into gui enviroment and when he/she logs through cli it automatically tranfers it profile to "/"(i.e root) i m using kde4.3
I am using OpenSuse 11.2 (64 bits) with KDE 4.3.1. My hard disk partition contains 3 areas : / + /home + swap. Frequently the / area is filling with, I suppose, temporary files until it is full (15 Go) and that in a very short time, typically about 5 mn. Then, these files are cleaned by the system, when disk space is needed I suppose. The point is that during this time, the system goes slower and slower until the "cleaning". That seems to occur only when Firefox (3.5.6) is running so I suppose that these files are temporary internet files.
I planned to use Squid on my W2k3 network, because I'm tired of ISA2k6.it's a factory in itself. So, I just installed a VM with OpenSuse 11.2 and joined it to my AD W2k3 domain. After correcting the clock problems, everything is running fine except a strange feature that I was not able to solve.After a reboot, I'm not able to login with a domain account. I enter the username/password, choose the domain then it the input fields become grey for 1-2 seconds then the password field is reset and nothing happens.The most strange part comes when you logon with the local root account. You login as root, then logoff and login with any domain account : works like a charm..
I am able to ftp the root of my EC2 instance of fc12 with a private key. However, I am unable to ftp a user account on a EC2 instance of fc12.I do not know what commands were given to fc12 to create an AMI that uses a private key instead of a password.As root administrator I like it. However, I am trying to set up users in such a way that Windows users using "My Network Places" can access my EC2 instance of fc12. I have created accounts for my users and set a password for each of them (useradd). The problem is that I am unable to ftp the fc12 server with the user name and password. The error message the client gets when it tries to do so says there is no supported authentication method available. I presume I must somehow change server security or something to allow access to users with passwords but I do not know how to do this.

This may sound a bit odd, but after installing Ubuntu Server 9.10 64-bit version, I can't seem to log in with the root account that I created. My user account works fine. I thought that I may have fat fingered the password when I created it so I ran the installer again since it takes very little time to do so. When creating the new root account password, I was very careful to type it correctly. After the install was complete, I am still unable to use the root account. I'm unable to SU from my normal user account, too. I just receive the Login incorrect error. Is there something with using root accounts with Ubuntu server that I'm missing?
I configured NIS server in Fedora 9 and is working fine.I configured NIS client in Ubuntu and it is able to bind the NIS server. In my NIS client macine: 1) "ypcat passwd" is showing all users passwords in NIS server.2) "id nisuser" is showing the uid, gid and group values.But, I am unable to login to my client machine using NIS login user name
I'm running a java app when my specific user (not root) login. It's running fine.The problem is that profile.local are calling my app twice ... The first call, it's blocking Linux environment until I close java app. After that, occurs the second call, then it's free Linux for usage.I tried to change my java app for gedit, and I can see the problem too.I tried with profile.local and /home/<my user>/.profile, the result is the same.
I have 2 servers A & B. both installed on different locations. both can ping and traceroute each other but there is no load shareing (both performing same functionality but independently). when i checked of server B /var/adm/messages, i can see that server A is trying to connect to server B but getting failed. and this is going on for long time. i mean it's not like someone manually try to enter but automatically its happening. i have already checked in cronjob but there is nothing. here are the logs,
May 3 11:01:27 Server A sshd: [ID 800047 auth.info] Failed password for user_id from 10.xxx.xxx.xxx port 53350 ssh2 May 3 11:01:27 Server A sshd: [ID 800047 auth.info] Failed password for user_id from 10.xxx.xxx.xxx port 53351 ssh2 May 3 11:01:27 Server A last message repeated 2 times
I made a Desktop User account. When I went on that account, it allowed me to execute sudo as if I was an administrator. I don't know what might be causing this. I do have ufw set up and blocking incoming connections. Do you guys know what might be at the root of this?Also, when I used sudo from the user account (which I shouldn't have been able to do), I provided the password for my admin account.
fter installing all of the packages needed to compile kernel 2.6.8, and after successful installation of the new kernel, and after successfully booting the new kernel, I am unable to login using my username.I can login as root with no problem. I have a single user system, but I login as root only when necessary.All of the files in my /home/user directory are intact. The information in passwd is unchanged. I just can't login as user.Using adduser I added a new user and password. Same thing.I have upgraded my kernel several times and never had any problem.At the login prompt I type in my username and get a message "System bootup in progress-please wait." And then, "incorrect login." The request for password never appears. I type in root and get the same System bootup...message, but I also get a "Password:" prompt.
I have just bought a PC with SUSE 10.1-0. The first time I started the PC an installation menu appeared. I didn't define a user name, thinking that it should log in automatically (as in Windows occurs), but now I can't go farther from the Welcome screen, due to the system is asking me de user and password, but I didn't introduce nothing! Leaving username and password in blank didn't solve the matter.
I can see the admin screen (pressing F10) but I am not able to find any user to log (logically) and I can't include new users from there.
I have also tried to install Windows XP modifying the BIOS but the system returns a message (once in the WinXP installation program) about an error called 4096, about the file i386halaacpi.dll, which is unable to find (something about the HAL), so I am afraid that my (new) RAM memory is damaged.
What could I do? The system is for an old person, so I would like to install finally WinXP and delete Suse.
