I have Windows 7 and Ubuntu 10.04 installed on the same harddrive. I'm using grub to boot both. I would like to deny access to the windows partitions, but allow access to removable drives and shared drives.
I'm using Ubuntu x64 (dunno which version, but I don't think it matters) and I'm concerned about security with PHP.I remember using lighttpd and I had some mystic configuration and the secuirty was perfect for me - if one website gets hacked then the others are still safe (kinda).Now with apache2 if I enable safemode I'm still able to go outside web directory and actually I can go really far untill user/group matches.I tested the system with r57shell and I was able to mess up other websites.Is there a way to disallow access to other websites?
After several times install & reinstall,i got a stable dual boot vista / ubuntu 10.10.,but i can't access or even see my windows partition from ubuntu,i installed my dual boot with wubu this time,in previous installation when i didn't use wubi , i didn't have such a problem & windows partition with all my files in it (windows files,media ,etc,) was easily accessible from "places" on ubuntu . I already disabled windows firewall & other security options but nothing changed
I need to disable file access (fopen, freopen, open etc) for application which is running under chroot jail and with restrictions (rlimit) via execv. Before that I redirected stdin/out to files within jail. I tried this:
Code: // Redirect stdin/stdout to files int fd = open (file_input, O_RDONLY); if (fd < 0) fatal_error ("input open failed!");
I have a desktop, a cellphone. I do NOT HAVE a disk drive, a USB stick or anything of the sort.
The desktop has two operating systems on a single hard drive: Ubuntu 10.04 and Windows 7. I need to get internet access in Windows 7.
The cellphone is a Galaxy S Vibrant, and is tethered so that I can connect to the internet through it. In Ubuntu, the tether is automatically supported. I just shove a USB cable between the cellphone and the phone and I've got internet in Linux. But in Windows, the tether needs drivers. I can't connect to my phone in Windows without them.
So, I pretty much have to put the installer in Windows from Linux, so I can run it, have internet in Windows and not get fired tomorrow.
I have $0, so picking up (or borrowing) something I can use to talk between the two computers is not an option.
But in Ubuntu, I do not see my Windows partition. It's not in media and it's not in mnt.
What can I do to get a damn file over to Windows?
Note in bold and italic to show that it's important: NTFS-Config only shows my Ubuntu drive, it seems.
I have ubuntu installed on an external hard drive. My ubunutu "Places" shows my windows partition which is on my internal hard drive. I would like to PERMANENTLY disable accessing windows partition in Ubuntu. I don't want to set authentication,etc. I want to PERMANENTLY disable it. I tried commenting "/etc/fstab" file but it still shows up in "Places" tab. I absolutely hate this. I would like to get rid of this. If nothing goes well I will get rid of Ubuntu itself.
I tried to search around for a way to access my windows partition from within Linux. I was unable to mount the same using "mount" command. I read of a tool "ntfs-config" as well, this too didn't work for me.
Please share if anyone out there has an idea on how we can access the windows partition (NTFS) from within Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick.
I would like to know if there is a way that I can access my files on the Windows partition using Linux because the Linux partition does not have enough space to house all the files on the Windows partition.
I have partioned my harddrive when I installed ubuntu 10.10 Desktop edition, 32-bit. But, after I installed it I can no longer access the Windows partition. I have never played with Linux OS before. I will provide a screen-shot of the partition. [URL]
I have windows machine and installed ubuntu in one of my partition, So i was able to select any of these OS's while booting the machine, But recently I've formatted Windows partition after this am unable to reach this ubuntu. i.e., While booting the machine no options are listing out it directly went to Windows OS.
I have already done the installation process following the guide on Ubuntu's site, got everything up and running but the partition that I made in the installer was too small. I was then directed by a friend (a slightly less inexperienced newbie) to modify this through Easeus Partition Manager. I shrunk the Windows 7 partition to only the space that was in use, giving the newly unallocated space to the Ubuntu partition. Set the changes and rebooted the computer, then got the message "unknown filesystem, grub rescue". Now have no idea what to do with this. What happened??
I've been scouring the forums for something helpful but I can't find anything that is a comparable circumstance.I can still access Ubuntu through my flashdrive.
I can't access (read/write) to my Windows partition from PCManFM on LXDE. On Gnome it is usually on the left side and you have to click on it and it mounts. I want to do the same for PCManFM. When I installed Debian with "Standard system utilities" it did work like it did on Gnome.
When I run out of space on my Ubuntu partition, which will probably happen with me being the untidy person I am, is there a way to resize the partition in Windows or Ubuntu that will allow the other to boot? As I've heard stories of using Gparted to resize a Windows partition doesn't allow Windows Vista to boot up as it removes a crucial part of the operating system? I have adequate space to give to Ubuntu on my NTFS partition. May I also add that to install Ubuntu I had to use the partitioner that came with the installer, because the Windows Disk Manager wouldn't let me partition the NTFS drive, because it Denied my Access.
My old computer came with two disks, with Windows XP on one. I installed Fredora on the other. I also resized the c: partition on the first disk and added a second partition which I formatted as fat32. I then mounted that partition with its entry in /etc/fstab such that I could write to it as myself.
I have a new computer, 64 bit and running Windows 7, which I want to organize roughly the same way. I will install Fedora 14 on its seond disk. I've shrunk the c: partition under Windows using Disk Management. I want to create a 100 Gb D: partition on the same drive in the remaining space, and I want to be able to access both c: and D: for reading and writing by root and I want to be able to access the d: drive for reading and writing also by myself. Since it is a 64 bit machine, my choices for formatting the d: drive are HTFS or exFAT. Does it matter which I choose so that I can do what I want? How does Fedora treat exFAT?
Can anyone remind me which packages I need to add in order to be able to read NTFS file systems from Fedora? Can I also write to such a file system as root?
Can I write to such a file system as myself if I mount it properly?
Now however its not letting me resize the Windows partition, mounted or unmounted. It currently occupies the whole disk. I would rather not reinstall the whole thing over again, but I will if I have to. Isnt there an easy way to shrink a Windows partition? I swear Ive done this before and it wasnt this hard. Could it be a problem with the Mint installer that now asks me if I want to unmount my disks before it goes into install mode? On this PC I would like to have
Windows XP Mint Ubuntu-Studio Edubuntu One of the E17 OSs Puppy Linux (to create a remix)
I am probably going to put most of the linux partitions on the second laptop drive but I want to install files on a non WIndows NTFS partition.
I got tired of dual booting on my old computer so on the new computer I am planning to run XP on VMware Player. The problem is that on the new computer neither Ubuntu or XP can "see" the FAT32 partition. I intend to use the FAT32 partition for photo images and old Windows files and need access from both Ubintu and XP.
I am currently running a dual boot machine with Ubuntu 11.04 and Windows Vista.Is there any way I can delete the Linux partition and Grub boot loader without affecting the Windows partition at all?I would also like to be able to repartition all of the space that was previously occupied by Linux.
I want to disallow usb port when it is connected...I tried sys/bus/usb/devices/power/level=suspend but still i can see that usb device and have access to that usb device . stop access to a particular usb device which is connected to Linux system...Also i tried ioperm() but i cannot find usb port no. which is required for it...Also i want to do this by C++ programming
I've recently just installed ubuntu 11.04 but seem to have made a big mistake. During the install process I was asked to specify a location to be used for swap. Not really understanding what this meant I chose another partition on my drive with some free space but also a lot of my data. Needless to say I now cant see that partition. Is there anyway for me to access it? or to at least recover the information I need from there? its about a 200gig partition, and it used to be ntfs.
to allow the services I need, am I missing anything ? I assume allowing ssh will also allow scp ? (heck I will allow sftp as well anyway).However my problem is I am connecting remotely, so the only way I can do what I want is to actually do a
sudo ufw default allow
then use a list of the services provided by
and deny each service individually? This seems a pain as if I turn on the firewall with default deny it will boot me out of my ssh connection?
trying to devise a new sudoers configuration while building a new SOE and would like to force everyone (including system administrators) to use rootsh in favour of doing things like sudo -s, sudo bash, sudo tcsh and so forth. Effectively, use sudo to use any shell other than rootsh. Is there a way to allow users to run anything they want except shells. I realise this is a default permit which inherently is defective, but I'm not convinced that going through the 1559 executable commands of my (as yet incomplete) built system to decided on the likely 1000+ commands I would want to be genuinely allowed. As I said this is for system administrators first, and I'd like to forcibly instil the habit of sudo <command> or using rootsh to get an audited shell. But I know people are already not doing enough sudo <command> as it stands, rather they switch to bash.
