Software :: VFat File System - No Permissions To Delete Files

Feb 21, 2010

I have the cowon iAudio7 music player with vfat file system and increasingly running into permission problems when I try to delete files. Unsurprisingly I am now running out of space. I am figuring if I could somehow mount it onto a folder in my home partition I will have full permissions. The problem is the drives name which is exactly with space: So even if try to delete files in the terminal I don't know how to cd into:

Code:
/media/I AUDIO7
note the space between I & AUDIO7.

Ubuntu :: Delete Files From Another File System?

Oct 24, 2010

When I boot up my Ubuntu system I get the following error message:Install Problem The configuration defaults for Gnome Power Management have been installed incorrectlyI found the following posting and this describes what also happesystemhttps://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu...uestion/111256I've created a recovery disk by using a memory stick from which I can boot. I can mount the old filesystem (HD). When I navigate, with the file browser, into one of the folder on the the HD and try to delete messages I get the following error message - 'Error removing file: Permission denied'.I guess I need to log / tell those files the root password from the system installation as per the version on the HD. But how do I do this?

Ubuntu Security :: Delete Files Off Journaling File-system?

Feb 19, 2010

I have some very confidental files on my computer that I store such as credit reports, and other things. I always encrypt them with GPG, but there still is that original non-encrypted file left that needs to be deleted. I looked into tools like wipe, and shred but they all say that it really doesn't help on journaling filesystems directly on their man page.

I am not asking how to wipe the whole drive with dd or anything, but I am simply asking if there is a tool that'll delete a single file securely.

General :: Cannot Change File Permissions On A Mounted File System

Apr 6, 2010

I have an ntfs partition that I wish to access as a normal user(non-root). For this I did the following. As root I created a folder /windows and did a chmod 777 -R on /windows. Then I added the following line to /etc/fstab

Code:

/dev/sda3 /windows ntfs-3g defaults,nosuid,nodev,umask=000 1 0

Now, the partition is mounted alright but the problem is that when any other user (non-root) creates a files in /windows (say by executing touch newfile) the newly created file has the owner and group set as root. The non-root user can create the file and he can also delete the file, however, he cannot change the permissions of the file and also the owner:group is always set as root:root. How do I get across this problem, i.e. how do I mount a partition, so that a non-root user can also change the permissions and ownerships of the files he creates.

General :: Delete 0 Bytes Files From A Fat Filesystem From Within System?

Also, the modification timestamp (as detected by Krusader, the file manager I am using) is 1935. How can I delete these kind of files without affecting the running fs?

Server :: System Files Delete By Typo - /bin/ Gone _ Recover It?

Jan 23, 2010

I had some bad luck today when I was trying to fix an account that had trouble with FTP. I decided to remove the user and add him again and reset all configuration. Anyhow, to make things short, I accidently typed rm /* -R -f and without looking hit the enter button, as soon as I realised what I wrote I hit ctrl+c. Too bad the /bin/ folder was gone by this time and standard commands like ls didn't execute anymore.

My question is if there is any way to recover these files by a system repair or something? The server is used to host a heavy loaded site which can't afford any downtime, and silly me didn't make a backup of the whole HDD, just the important folders (not the system files).

Currently I don't have the balls to restart the server as I know this will probably turn into a dissaster. I also don't have straight access to this server since it is located in a datacenter (I can go there if absolutely necessary but I rather don't).

General :: Delete Protected Windows Executable Files Via System?

Oct 26, 2009

I use Ubuntu 9.04 exclusively on my own machines, but I have a couple of flash drives that got infected by some corrupt windows executable (*.exe) files, probably by somebody's trojan (they are Cruzer 4GB so came with installed fancy programs that I dont need but didnt remove and Windows keeps installing unwanted ini files and other trash every time I use them in somebody elses machine or in an internet cafe). I deleted quite a few files, but some are stubborn.
$ sudo chmod +w-X doesnt seem to work. How do I unprotect and remove them? The filesystem is vFAT.

I suspect the files were created by some kind of a trojan as my work requires my flash to be pretty promiscuous.
When I 've backed up all the good files I need, I'd be happy to reformat the flash drives as straight vanilla data storage and retrieval, provided I can still use them on a variety of machines running MS windows as well as on my Linux machines. Any guidance on reformatting?

Server :: File Permissions Being Stripped On New Files Via NFS

Feb 3, 2010

I'm having an issue that I've seen before on other OS's (Solaris), but I'm coming up blank on solving for an NFS mount shared from RedHat I've googled this, and looked through all the FAQs and mail lists I can find.

The issue is this:

Whenever a new file is created from an NFS client to an NFS mounted file system, the group and world permissions are being stripped such that any new file created ends up with 0600 as the file permissions. On the server, I have tried various sharing options (all_squash, anonuid, anongid, no_acl) with no luck. I've looked at the underlying mount point ownership and permissions, checked the file system acl's (getfacl...they match the visible file system), and set the custom SELinux (not mine) config to permissive. The file system is on an LVM partition, and has an SELinux group assigned in /etc/fstab. I've unmounted it, and performed a vanilla mount (no options). No amount of trial and error is working. Any file created by any user on an nfs client machine creates files with 0600 permissions, and local users on the nfs server create files with permissions based off their umask settings. I originally thought it was due to mismatches in permissions from Windows to Linux (The server also NFS shares to Windows 2K boxes using hclnfsd (PC/NFS)), but I confirmed the same issue between RedHat systems.

One thing I'm wondering from my reading. It's mentioned in many places that ownership should be root in most cases and not some other user. This entire file structure is owned by a user that is ONLY local to the server box (long story, but the box is isolated....no DNS and only local users and settings).

Software :: Apache2 Module File System Permissions?

Feb 20, 2010

I'm doing a custom version of mod_musicindex, but can't get the cache to write like it's supposed to.example cache file: /tmp/testing/cacheNow, normally I think setting the dir testing and file cache to www-data:www-data would be enough. Permission denied. I tried 666 as well, figuring why not. Permission denied.777 works, but thats pretty far out there...Am I using the wrong user/group? I figured apache modules would run as apache.Do I need to use 777? 700 or 744 don't work, which is making me think it's not running as apache...

Programming :: GNU Make - System Libraries And File Permissions

Jan 27, 2010

I am trying to compile a C++ source file into a static library using make with root privileges (i.e., using "sudo"). However, I "sometimes" get the following compilation error:

Code:
g++ -Wall -g -fPIC -W -c /home/project/ether/src/packet-ethernet.cc
ar -cvq libether.a /home/project/ether/src/packet-ethernet.o
ar: /home/project/ether/src/packet-ethernet.o: No such file or directory
make: *** [libether.a] Error 1

I checked /home/project/ether/src folder to see if packet-ethernet.o in fact does not exist, and saw that it is actually located there, but its owner is "root", which is different from the current user. If I change the owner of packet_ethernet.o from root to the current user using "chown" command and execute make again with sudo, everything seems to be fine.

It may be a coincidence that I recently migrated to 64-bit platform from 32-bit, and then installed libboost-filesystem1.40-dev. After that, I began to experience such errors. I have "never" come across such a compilation error before. Even though I completely removed libboost-filesystem1.40-dev afterwards to see if it causes the problem, nothing changed.

After migrating to 64-bit and installing libboost-filesystem1.40-dev, my application exhibited another "weird" behaviour such that it produced "hidden" files using mkdir() system call, which were previously created as regular ones on the filesystem. Can compiler options that I use cause such problems? Is it possible that libboost-filesystem1.40-dev overwrote some system libraries so that I am getting such errors ?

Ubuntu :: Delete All Files Listed In A Text File?

May 26, 2010

Through various Windows reinstalls and switches within Linux distros, I have a massive amount of duplication within my music archive (on the order of 7+ dupes of each file). Now, I found a lovely program called "fdupes" and was able to build a list of all the duplicate files, and I'm trying to use "xargs" to remove then. However, when I try and run the command "xargs -0 --arg-file="dupes.txt" rm" or "xargs -0 rm < "dupes.txt"" it give me the following error: "xargs: argument line too long".

how perhaps a different way of accomplishing the same thing?

Ubuntu :: File Permissions For Copied Files On External HDD?

Mar 24, 2010

I'm sure that the issue I'm having is easily solvable once I gain some understanding about copying files - and file permissions in Ubuntu. Here's my situation:

I have an external HDD where I like to back up some files (I mess around with distros on my main machine and feel less stressed knowing the important stuff is backed up). I have an ext4 partition on the external drive where I have copied files, both through the terminal (cp 'filename' /dev/sdc3) and by drag and drop (gnome-terminal).

The problem is, once the files are copied, most are inaccessible. I can view them, but some directories and individual files say I do not have permission to open them. Others are accessible. This is from the same user profile that copied them.

How do I see what's going on? More importantly, how do I make files on external drives available to any user or OS (that can handle ext4)? I want to make sure that if my whole system gets effed that I could still do a reinstall of my OS and then access those backup files.

Ubuntu :: Can't Change The File Permissions Of Files And Folders

Nov 17, 2010

I've just read that I can't change the file permissions of files and folders if they are sitting in what was my old Windows D: drive. Is this correct? If so what is the work-around?

I don't want to have to cut and paste that entire D: drive's contents over to a recognised Ubuntu folder. I had in my mind that this D drive would continue to be my data dumping ground, to which I need read/write access to.

Ubuntu :: Change Or Delete Obsolete System File Type

May 23, 2010

I use Markdown to store all of my source documents. Unfortunately, the .md extension maps to application/x-genesis-rom under Ubuntu. I'm not sure why that would be a system default MIME type, but I'd like to change it.

I've tried using:

Code:
gksu assogiate

to modify my file type cache. Unfortunately, even as the SU, I can't modify the entry for this file type. The "Remove" button is inactivated for the entry. (See attachment.)

How can I get rid of this (obsolete?) file association? Alternatively, how can I make my new one (text/x-markdown) take precedence?

Fedora :: Weird Hard Drive / File System Permissions

Nov 29, 2009

I've been installing/tweaking F12, and I've found something that I can't say I've ever seen or expected to find before: the contents of my ~/Documents folder has lost its permissions and ownership info. I restored it from a backup last night/this morning, and I've rebooted a few times since then. Other folders from the backup are OK, just Documents.I don't know what my options are. I could try to blow it away and restore it, but that doesn't answer what caused it. If there's a "relabel" or something, that might help... though I've never had to do it before. Could it be that after these two-and-some-change years, my hard drive is giving out? Good thing I have a recent backup... but it'd be a shame to lose all my work getting F12 to work again.

Ubuntu :: Assign Permissions On A Partition With Ntfs As The File System?

can assign permissions on a partition with ntfs as the file system. I am aware of editing fstab and setting some basic permissions. What I am clumsily dictating is can you edit permissions of individual folders for specific users in Linux. I have already tried chmod and such

etc something similar to this

Code:
[user@computername user]$ sudo chmod 600 directory

Ubuntu Servers :: Default File Permissions For System Folders

May 5, 2010

I had a major raid event recently which caused my Ubuntu 9.04 server to recover part of its file journal on the system partition. This caused some of the file permissions to go all funny and I now need to change them manually.

What the file permissions should for the following folders:
/etc/
/home/
/lost+found/
/mnt/
/root/
/sbin/
/srv/
/tmp/

The server is running and I fixed the some of the ownership issues already. I use a basic LAMP setup with samba, and proftp.
