I recently installed Ubuntu 10.04 using Wubi on an ACER Aspire 5000 XP laptop. Everything runs ok and I can access my Windows folders from Ubuntu through the host directory but only as Read Only. I have checked to make sure that the Windows folder I want to access (My Documents) is not designated as Read Only in Windows.
Ive managed to install samba, I've shared a folder. I can access from a Windows 7 machine via \ubuntupublic. I can put files in the folder form the ubuntu machine and edit them on the windows box. I can put files in the folder/share from the Windows box but then I cannot edit them on the Ubuntu machine (they are read only and have a "Lock" over them). I can fix this by going to the properties of the file/folder in Windows and manually assigning "Everybody" full control (then the lock disappears and all is well.) I want read/write access to all the folders contents from both machines all the time (security is NOT a concern I WANT the permissions wide open) what am I doing wrong?
What are the possible problem when Windows access the file from Ubuntu got Read Only even though have a full permission to read, write and execute the file? Ubuntu to Ubuntu accessing the file there is no problem only Windows got a problem.
I am not at all convinced by the idea of giving permissions to read,write and execute as these Learning Management Systems say. Let me know what you people have to say? What is the best practise in such situations? I have to get all these LMS run on same web server.
On opening nautilus,it shows the XP ad Fedora partitions.Clicking on them mounts the partition.However,XP partitions are mounted in Read/write mode,whereas Fedora partition is mounted only in Read mode.What changes should i need to make in /etc/fstab to enable Read/Write access to Fedora partition as well?
I'm using Arch right now and i'm having problems syncing my ipod with Amarok (KDE). Everytime I would want to sync a song, it would give me access denied. it is currently mounted at /tmp/ipodbxQtrU and i have tried using chmod with no luck. I was in root when i used "chmod -R user ipodbxQtrU" and it said operation not permitted.
I had to reinstall Ubuntu (Natty) on a brand new computer and while installing I setup the datas partition to be mounted in /usr but now I can't have access to files I put in there even if I setup the group/user permission! I can accezz /usr/Music but all files are locked
I have apache2 running on my computer. I want to change the permissions for /var/www/ so that I can edit the files without a problem. Right now I can use the gksudo command, but I'd like to be able to have all the files available when using an IDE like eclipse. I've read in several places that Code: chmod 755 /var/www will do, but if I'm not mistaken that would give read/write access to anyone. I'm not in a production environment, so I'm not too worried about security, but I'd like to give anyone else as less permissions as possible. Would this be possible?
I have installed Ubuntu 11.04 64 bit desktop version on ext4 partition without swap. I have maximus iv extreme motherboard with 8 Gbytes RAM. Using 3 internal ntfs formatted hard drives and 3 external ntfs usb 2.0 hard drives.When I am trying to copy or move files FROM or TO any ntfs partiton it is 90 percent chance it is going to freeze.For copy/moving files I am using krusader run as ROOT or as user without root privilege or Nautilus as user without root privilege. It wasn't possible to switch to another terminal - it simply does not react on keyboard or mouse input and only hard reset is possible (scares me because of ntfs disks)From this point of view I have suspicious on ntfs driver but:I am completely beginner in linux and I am looking for help to navigate me how to investigate to find what is causing the problem eventually to solve it?
According to my experience it seems to does not matter if hard disk is internal or external connected through SATA II or SATA III or USB 2.0. I have tried to manipulate with ntfspartitions through the vmware or virualbox or truecrypt software or just do a simplecopy/move files - it have has always the same results - freeze. There is not possible to say how long it is going to work properly and when it is going to freeze - sometimes it's working hour, sometimes it's working couple of seconds - no matter if it is read or write operation/s within ntfs partition.
I own a particular file on a Linux system. I would like to give 2 groups (accounting, shipping) read access and only read access, and 3 users(Mike, Raj and Wally) write access and only write access. How can I accomplish this?
I want to make a new partition that I can read and write to from Ubuntu 11.04 and Windows 7. I haven't used Ubuntu much since 8.10 and it seems that I remember it being much easier to do then. I'm using this partition to store my music, pictures and videos on if that is of any relevance. I also need this to be something that can't mess up my windows side of my computer as I need that for work.
Anybody know how to make an ext3 or 4 partition start up at boot with only the owner and its group having read and write access permissions.I don't want 'others' to have folder access. This is what i have done. / etc/fstab:/dev/sdb5/media/Data ext4 owner 1 2 The folder starts on the boot since it has been allocated a folder as u can see. Next i changed the the ownership and the group ownership of the folder:chown johnny:johnny /media/DataThe problem is that other users can few my partition since 'others' have read access. How do i change that to zero access?
What is the best way to "permanently" mount a windows ntfs drive on suse 10.0 for read/write access? I use samba but I can't seem to find a way to mount the drive "permanently". Is it safe for my NTFS drive?
I'm setting up Ubuntu Karmic on my sister's old computer for my nephew, he's quite young so my sister asked to install some content filtering. I'll first setup an OpenDNS account and I've installed and managed to get dansguardian and squid working on a virtual machine to try it out. so far it's working pretty well, but I need to secure it form the inside out.
I was thinking of blocking specific outbound ports so he could not bypass the proxy. because by default the firefox configuration can be easily changed. so I have a couple of questions.
1. is it possible to block outgoing ports on Ubuntu? 2. is that the best method? 3. is there anything else I should be aware of to prevent subversion?
lastly, this question is probably unrelated to this board but I've set up a cron job to update a dynamic ip with OpenDNS, the problem is that the password is in clear text in the user's crontab, can I play with permissions? is it possible to run the job under a root account and deny read/write access to a normal user?
I am trying to setup my webserver and I am trying to make a website to run under suexec but somehow I cannot start my apache it directly fails and SELinux is giving me errors and don't really know what to do with it, it is giving me some command to type but not sure if this will make my server less secure. The SELinux error is as follow:
Code: Summary: SELinux prevented httpd reading and writing access to http files.
Detailed Description: SELinux prevented httpd reading and writing access to http files. Ordinarily httpd is allowed full access to all files labeled with http file context. This machine has a tightened security policy with the httpd_unified turned off, this requires explicit labeling of all files. If a file is a cgi script it needs to be labeled with httpd_TYPE_script_exec_t in order to be executed. If it is read-only content, it needs to be labeled httpd_TYPE_content_t, it is writable content. it needs to be labeled httpd_TYPE_script_rw_t or httpd_TYPE_script_ra_t. You can use the chcon command to change these contexts. Please refer to the man page "man httpd_selinux" or FAQ [URL] "TYPE" refers to one of "sys", "user" or "staff" or potentially other script types.
Allowing Access: Changing the "httpd_unified" boolean to true will allow this access: "setsebool -P httpd_unified=1"
Fix Command: setsebool -P httpd_unified=1
I will write down how I did setup my server so maybe you can see a mistake I did. First I changed my Apache httpd.conf I added the following to it: Code: NameVirtualHost 192.168.1.2:80 <VirtualHost 192.168.1.2:80> ServerName localhost DocumentRoot /var/www/html DirectoryIndex index.html index.html index.shtml index.php </VirtualHost>
Then I created the username "ulyaoth" with the group "ulyaoth" as I specified with my suexec, then I created all the directories as specified in my httpd.conf and "chown ulyaoth:ulyaoth (dirname)" them to the right group and username.
I'm having difficulty making my FAT32 drive capable of read/write. I followed the instructions here (http://ubuntuguide.org/wiki/Ubuntu:Maverick#Windows_Compatibility) and added the following line to my /etc/fstab file:
Code: /dev/sda4 /media/WinD vfat quiet,defaults,rw 0 0 However, when I rebooted the drive is still read-only
I'm looking to set up a server with attached mass storage device and tape autoloader to run linux. It's set up under Windows at the moment. Goal is to have users, connecting from individual workstations and laptops, backup their data to the linux server. On their personal machine, some users run linux, some MacOS, some Windows. I plan to set up the 5 500 GB drives as RAID5. I understand that if setting up as software raid the format is "physical volume for RAID". Under this setup, will Windows users be able to read/write and function as expected? I can't assume only linux user access.
I am dual booting OpenSuse 11.2 and Windows 7 both 64bit on my PC. I've got VMware workstation installed on both. I've got few virtual machines which were all created in Windows VMware and they're all stored on a separate partition. I can access this partition and all other NTFS partition from Suse but with read-only permissions. That means I can't run any of these virtual machines from Suse VMware. Is there any possible way to make all these drives writeable from Suse? I'm really hoping someone would be able to help me. I've got a lot of googling and have even searched this forum but without any luck.
Following a re-install of Ubuntu 9.04 I now find that I am now unable to access some of the Windows folders on the "C:/> Drive" as I did before the re-install was done.
Using the access from "Places" only some of the folders are listed. I have also been trying to re-configure "Wine" to run one or two of the applications in Windows. However, I was able to configure one such application to run but from the External HDD, because I had a backup copy of the ".exe" file. I transferred this file to the Internal HDD and it now runs satisfactory. The other applications are inaccessible because of this "Access" shortcoming. Strangely, I somehow was able to get to the "Start Menu" in Windows listing all the applications' shortcut links, but sadly not the Programs Folder with the ".exe" files in Windows.
I would appreciate any help and/or advice of how I can overcome this problem to enable me to access all Folders in Windows XP.
Two days ago my Windows 7 just crashed and it doesn't work any more. Using a computer in a Internet point a downloaded Ubuntu 10.10 Live and now I'm running it in my computer. I would like to install Ubuntu definitely on my computer but before I would like to find all my old file from Windows 7. In Places/Computer has only the File System and nothing else. In System/Administration/Disk Utility I can see my 320 GB hard Disk (ATA Samsung HM3200II) but I can't do anything in that. I tried to use the Ubuntu 10.10 live in other computer and this work perfectly, but in this one no. What can I do to right now?
I have a Windows 2003 server with fiber attached volumes (NTFS) that I would like to mount readonly on a linux system to back it up to tape. The fiber device will allow me to present the volume R/W to one host and R/O to another, however, the R/O system doesn't see any of the changes made by the R/W server. In other words, how can I make a readonly volume refresh, scan for changes, or update without un/re-mounting it?
Is the "mount -o --bind" option what I want? From the MAN is doesn't seem right... the option "sync" seems slightly more promising but I think I'm just grasping at straws here. The best I have come up with is a cron job to unmount then mount the volume periodically.
I find it very strange that you can just insert Ubuntu installation CD in any PC, and have unlimited access to all users' My Documents folders on that computer. It doesn't even ask for password, nothing. I can take Ubuntu CD with me and copy data from all PCs in the company where I work.
I have been having problems with Samba sharing from my Ubuntu-Server to all of my Windows 7 machines. All of the machines are able to access the samba shares however when i try to write to these shares i get a "Access Denied" error. This only happens under windows 7, my Ubuntu laptop easily writes to these shares. PS My permissions are read/write to all
write a RS232 app to read and write to an analog PBX through a serial cable.I am looking to use perl with Device::SerialPort. For starters,i'd just like to get the connection running between two linux servers as i do not have the specs on the pbx at the moment. To set this connection up between two linux servers,what do i need?Is there any extra packages i need to install, or should it just work,i.e i have the cable connected to both com1 ports and if i do something like
echo "Hallo" > /dev/ttyS0 from one and
cat < /dev/ttyS0
from the other, should i expect some comms happening?I have tried this, and its not working, hence my question what i'll need to set up a rs232 connection between two linux servers.
I need to Implement read/write locks using Semaphores. The implementation should allow many processes to read a critical section simultaneously. but allows an exclusive lock to a writer process. Also it seems like we need to have a precedence for write locks so that to avoid writer starvation.
One of my hard drives is failing. I would like to get some data off it. I backup regularly, but am missing about 1.5 weeks worth of data. Sometimes the drive clicks and fails to operate, and if it does operate, it has a few errors here and there.My failing drive runs Windows XP with a NTFS format. I would like to image the failing drive using ddrescue (I've read that works good) to another NTFS hard drive with more than enough space on it to hold data from the failing HD. I don't even know if this is possible or how to go about this.
* Can ddrescue read from Windows NTFS and write to a NTFS hard drive?
* What do I need to download so I can boot ddrescue from floppy or CD-ROM so I can image one drive to another (perhaps a partition on another)?
* Do I need to download a Linux boot disk or something with ddrescue on it?
* Are there any free or open source Windows programs that do what ddrescue does? This data is important to me, but not important enough to spend a fortune on. It represents about 40 or more hours of work. As a note, I can only get the failing drive to operate if it is set on the primary IDE ribbon and in the first position.
I have Fedora 8 and we just switched over from a Windows "File Server" to Windows Server 2008 (10.1.1.17). I updated my fstab file and now when I go onto the Windows folders, I can list and read files, even save them, but new files are always read only.
fstab file (some, without the asterisks): //10.1.1.17/USERS/Jeff/fs /home/mriuser/Desktop/fs cifs rw,username=jsadino,password=**** 0 0
I've tried ntfs-3g, auto, ntfs, smb, some umask combinations, changing ownerships, changing permissions, everything I could think of, but still can't modify new files.
[root@localhost tmp10]# mkdir tmp2 [root@localhost tmp10]# cd tmp2 [root@localhost tmp2]# touch tmp [root@localhost tmp2]# ls -l
I am using F10 desktop edition, all the computers using windows are able to access the shared folders over lan except me using F10. I have tried many things with smb but still unable to connect.I am new to linux so i dont khow much of its technicalities.kindly suggest how can i be able to access the shared documents ..
The Problem was I wanted to open my /home/Pictures folder and have it display the contents of the My Pictures folder in my windows partition. This way I could have ubuntu and xp using the same set of music files, picture files, etc. I was having a very hard time understanding how to get from here to there because I'm such a newbie. However I have discovered how to do it and I wanted to post it, in hopes it will make things easier for other newbies.This allows me to see every TYPE of document in /dev/sda8/Media (windows My Documents folder) without having to see any of the folders (My Music, My Pictures, etc).
I'm running ubuntu 9.10, and created a softraid5 with no problems. Now i need it to automount with user read/write access, and i need to make some network share folders. My fstab has the following line for the raid:
Code: /dev/md0 /media/raid auto rw,user,auto,exec 0 0 After i mounted it, i changed the permission with:
Code: sudo chmod 777 /media/raid/ So now i can create folders and files on it. Then i created some shares, one with guest access and other with no guest access.
Now the questions:
1) If i access the guest shared folder via WinXP, i create files and folders, but they appear locked on ubuntu, so i cant access them until i change the permissions. If i go to proprieties/Permissions, the owner is "nobody".
2) What password do i need to use on WinXP, and i try to access the non-guest shared folded? Do i need to create a user just for that?
