Debian :: When Open Up Konsole And Type 'su' And My Root Password - Authentication Failure ?

Apr 8, 2010

My system software is installed on an encrypted LVM on hda1 and hda2. My home directory takes up the whole of hdb1 which is also encrypted. I can boot up into the kde desktop okay, but when I open up konsole and type 'su' and my root password I get the message "su: Authentication failure". I am absolutely certain that I am using the right password.

Even more strangely, if I fire up synaptic and give it that same password I am able to install software. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what's gone wrong and how I can fix it?

I can also type Ctrl-Alt-F2 and log in as root to do administrative tasks without any problems so I cannot understand why konsole has locked me out.

Software :: Type The Password For "root"?

May 16, 2010

im trying to install firefox and i ran "makepkg -s" and got this message,

==>Making package: firefox 3.6.3-1 i686 (Sun May 16 00:28:27 PDT 2010)
==>Checking Runtime dependencies...
==>Installing missing dependencies...

We trust you have received the usual lecture from the local system Administrator. It usually boils down to these three things:

#1) Respect the privacy of others.
#2) Think before you type.
#3) With great power comes great responsibility

Password: Do i type the password for "root"? Or is this some kind of riddle?

Ubuntu :: TightVNC Error:server Did Not Offer Supported Security Type

May 10, 2011

I will try to keep this straight-forward. Yesterday I was able to access an ubuntu 10.10 (edubuntu) desktop using the tightVNC viewer that I installed on my Vista laptop. I never set anything up on the desktop it just worked and I didn't question it.

Today I get the following error on the viewer software: "Server did not offer supported security type" The only thing that has changed was that I installed a bunch of updates yesterday afternoon, but I am not sure what changed.

Ubuntu :: Changing File System Type To Another Filesystem Type - Does It Effect On Data?

Feb 4, 2011

In my system around 73gb(pc-desktop) i have,1 primary partition(windows)-25gb, 1-extended partition(remaining gb) 3 logical partitions were there in (under) extended partition in one of the logical partition is d:drive. in my hard disk d: drive is -/dev/sda5

previosly i was fat -file system , (d:drive-/dev/sda5), i remember i changed the d: drive(d:drive-/dev/sda5) file system to ext4file system ,with following command using terminal

After doing(changing the file system)this one ,i couldnt see the d:drive data

By doing that

1q) Did i reformatted the partition? i think the new filesystem(ext4) has no knowledge of the data that was on it when it had a FAT filesystem.

2q) How to do undo operation,i tried to change the filesystem type to fat/ntfs in terminal using command --sudo mkfs -t FAT /dev/sda5.

Result:its showing text message-'mkfs.FAT: No such file or directory'(not in single quote)

I had very imp data in d:drive

How do I get arch/processor type at a particular root? On Solaris, I can get it by running

Ubuntu :: No Need To Type Password To Mount HDD Partition

Jan 10, 2010

I am having a dual boot system vista/ubuntu 9.04. Till recently whenever I wanted to access my vista partition I had to type in the administrative password. However, strangely, for last few days whenever I access the vista partition I don't need to type the password. The partition is just mounted and I can access the files. I would like to know the reasons and if possible to get back the previous situation (needing password to access the vista partition).

Ubuntu Installation :: Cannot Type Password To Login?

Apr 29, 2010

Fresh install from the new CD (via BitTorrent). Installation seemed to go cleanly, with no errors or warnings, but a long delay while some files were downloading from the overloaded servers. However, after the reboot, the machine was unusable. Can't log in because it won't recognize any characters coming from the keyboard when I try to type my password. Hardware is a Lenovo (IBM) ThinkPad R52 with 1.5 GB RAM. Extremely vanilla machine. Possible wrinkle in that I'm trying another VM this time around, using VMware Player 3.0.1. Right now I'm assuming this installation is dead and non-recoverable.

General :: Cannot Login - Unable To Type Password

Oct 20, 2009

I newly installed Ububtu 8,04.3. I formatted my hard drive and erased Windows XP and tried to do the manual partitioning but don't have enough knowledge so picked the guided tour. Everything seemed to install but when I restarted it comes to "computer log-in" and wants a user name and password. I put in the user name I chose during installation and tried to put in the password but it wouldn'd type in - it also seemed to want a name for "computer." Does anyone know where I went wrong? I've been struggling to learn computer stuff on my own.

Ubuntu :: Changing Session Type When Login In Without Password?

Sep 26, 2010

I am unable to change session type when not requiring passord on login.

How requiring password was changed:

System/Administration/Users and Groups
Clicked on my User
Clicked "Change" next to "Password: Asked on login"
Checked the checkbox for "Don't ask for password on login"
OK'd, everything

Please try this yourself as it might be hard to understand. But the option to change session type (ie: Gnome failsafe instead of reguar Gnome) is only visable along side with the password field.

Is it possible to make the session type setting visable without requiering password on login?

Ubuntu Installation :: Xubuntu 10.04 - Login Screen Won't Let Type Password

May 2, 2010

I installed Xubuntu 10.04 on my Dell laptop earlier, and all went well until I tried to finally login. A dull black screen is presented (I don't know if that's normal; I expected a pleasant splash screen haha). As a windows user, I can only explain it as looking like a command prompt. The first line asks me for my login (which is my first name). I type it in, press enter, and then it asks me for my password. The problem is, no matter what I press, nothing happens after that.

Fedora :: Way To Auto-login Account / Don't Have To Type Password Everytim Switch On PC?

Feb 4, 2011

1. I am currently using a basic fedora 14. I had a fedora 8 DVD that contained many packages including its installation (I mean it was bootable and had its iso image. Now my question is that is there any way by which I can install the packages(like from that DVD to fedora 14? I have a slow internet connection and its not possible for me to download large files.

2. I installed some packages via yum. My friend also has fedora 14 but unfortunately he doesnt have a internet connection to download the files via yum and install them. Are the .rpm files downloaded via yum stored in some specific folder, so that I can transfer those files via a flash drive to his computer and install them directly there?

3. Is there a way to autologin my account so that I dont have to type my password everytime I switch on my PC?

4. Everytime and every session I try to access a ntfs partition, it asks for my root password. Any tricks to bypass this?

Security :: Server Hacked By Opyum?

Apr 11, 2011

Awoke to millions of failed SSH attempts into my public server. Behind a firewall which forwards only SSH and HTTP. Local iptables deny everything except SSH and HTTP. Exact same symptoms and results as Chris over at his site: here.I just want to know how they managed to execute a script, or make changes etc? Here's some info:According to cat /var/log/secure | grep "Accepted" no one besides myself gained entry via SSH.The FTP account (500:48 (Purposely in apache group)) is chrooted to a 775 directory and vsftpd does not accept anonymous entry. vsftpd and xferlog's are empty?

You have new mail in /var/spool/mail/root

Security :: The Server Was Hacked From So Called Tor IP Address?

Nov 14, 2010

I always use professional services to secure my servers. Everything was fine for years but a week ago my server got hacked.I don't know how the hacker got my username/password - it was not something like admin, password.9 months ago my PC was infected with some virus which connected to the FTP server by using password which was saved in CuteFTP and infected all index files with some javascript. Then I changed the user/FTP password and didn't save it anymore in Cute FTP. Of course, I checked all the folders and re-uploaded all infected files. Is it possible that this virus uploaded some hidden file which was able to get the new password for this account?

The server was hacked from so called Tor IP address. I am tiref of worrying about server security and now have an idea to get a static IP address from my ISP and to allow logins only from this IP address. What do you think about it? This idea looks good for me but are there any risks to lose access to the server. Can ISP provider change the static IP address for some reason?
