Ubuntu :: Login Cycle Loop After Username / Password Entered

Aug 12, 2010

The login cycles- I already have a problem with mounting something connected with USB (long term minor annoyance, but everything works), but suddenly I cannot log in. When I put my username and password in, the screen flashes black for about half a second, then the login screen re-appears. If I put the wrong password in, I get an authentication error message (as expected) without turning black and then cycling again.

I have no problems going into terminal mode and logging in. I've tried all sorts of suggestions related to this problem- reinstalling ubuntu-desktop, apt-get clean, sudo startx, and the last indicates that x-windows is already running. I've found a couple more things to try, but I'm not too sure how well they'll work. It seems to be connected with x-windows, but I don't know what is causing it. Last night I had a big problem that required reinstalling nautilus (couldn't set up a connection to a remote server), and that problem was fixed- but this developed when I booted this morning.

Ubuntu :: Can't Download Software - Entered My Password And Then Got An Error ?

Jun 10, 2010

Recently I was trying to download some software from Ubuntu Software Center. I found the app I needed, pressed install, entered my password and then i got an error window with this written in it: 'The installation could have failed because of an error in the corresponding software package or it was cancelled in an unfriendly way. You have to repair this before you can install or remove any further software.'

The problem is that I don't remember what I downloaded or when I did it.

Ubuntu Networking :: SAMBA "password , Username Is Invalid" / What To Do?

May 15, 2010

I have a 9.10 installation that I am unable to connect with SAMBA.

Attempts to access this (from Windows XP) give an error "the password or username is invalid".

I can see the computer, but not connect.

The Ubuntu installation is set up with the same user and password I normally use, and the files are setup the same way. I even copied smb.conf from another installation which works.

I set up SMB when prompted by shares-admin.

Ubuntu Servers :: Users On The Machine Can Login Into Vsftpd With Their Username And Password On The Machine And Go To Their Root Dir "/home/username"?

Nov 3, 2010

I recently installed vsftpd on my server. I noticed that users on the machine can login into vsftpd with their username and password on the machine and go to their root dir "/home/username".Now, I want to give some people a vsftpd username and password so they can upload and download files and folders to their folder, but this folder has to be in the "/var/www/(username)" folder. I don't want them to be able to go to any other folder than their own folder like "/var", "/etc" or "/home" etc. Also I don't want them to be able to login on the machine as a user, through putty for example. They should only be allowed to acces their folder with vsftpd, nothing else.

Fedora Servers :: Error - Unit Sshd.service Entered Failed State

Aug 20, 2011

hi, first i'd like to say that i'm totally new to linux, i was allways using windows.

as i was allways unable to install a good and stable ssh-server on windows, i thought it is time to change to linux. i was able to set up and configure a ssh-server on debian but found out, that fedora 15 looks more userfriendly in first place for me. but now i unfortunately experience problems..

the ssh server was already installed, i changed the service setting to that it starts automatically but after i succesfully connected to the LAN, i cannot access the shh via putty for instance. when i type "service sshd status" it says beside other things: active (running). but when i look at the /var/log/messages, it says those two lines:

sshd.service: main process exited, code=exited, status=255
Unit sshd.service entered failed state.

i searched on google without success, the only thing i found was that someone had the same problem with a bad sshd_config file, but i'm pretty sure that everything is alright with my config-file (i checked it several times).

beside this i cant login on the gui, after the firefox update (??) it always says: a problem has occured and the system can't recover bla bla... so i can only use fedora right now commandline-based.. but with this problem i will deal later on...

Ubuntu Networking :: 10.4 - Password Entered But Cannot Connect To Wireless

Oct 31, 2010

I'm running Ubuntu 10.4 Netbook Remix on a Dell Mini Netbook 9 (I think that's what it is.) I used to be able to connect to my wireless internet fine, but then my brother put a password on it. So there's a little box that comes up and tells me to enter a password now. I do, and it tries to load for a minute and then wants me to enter my password again. It just keeps going like this.

Ubuntu :: 10.04 Get 4 Characters Entered In The First Password Field And It Freezes?

May 4, 2010

This is mostly an FYI. I have been messing around with an old desktop to see what I could do.

I installed an image of XP, then tried installing Ubuntu. I chose the option to install along side XP, and adjusted the partition size. The install gets to the point where I create my password, and I get exactly 4 characters entered in the first password field and it freezes. It did the same thing on two consecutive installation attempts.

General :: Entered An Incorrect Password Too Many Times Trying To Us SSL VPN?

Jun 21, 2011

I just got a new laptop for work that dual boots with Windows 7 and Ubuntu 10.10.Normally, I can use an sslvpn connection to log onto my office servers to transfer data back and forth through Windows. However, I do my actual work on Linux, which the computing services department at the university where I work has not set up a sslvpn connection method for.I got the JRE set up on Linux and loaded up the sslvpn connection when I was asked for my sudo password. After following some other instructions, I created a different password to act as root.I entered that password over and over again and now I'm not able to attempt to connect again by trying another password.

Ubuntu :: 10.04 Recognized By OS X - Error Message "Incorrect Username Or Password"

Jul 26, 2010

We want a file server for the office and have installed Ubuntu 10.04 Desktop onto a PC we had laying around with the intent of having it accessible by our Macs (all-mac environment). We followed the guide here:


The server is visible (most of the time) in Finder with the Xserve icon but we cannot connect to it using the Ubuntu login/pw - it simply says "Incorrect username or password" no matter what we put in. We can always find it with Command+K.

The content of /etc/netatalk/AppleVolumes.default is:

~/ "Home Directory"
~/ "$u" allow:cserver cnidscheme:cdb

where cserver is the sole login for Ubuntu.

We didn't follow any of the instructions under the "Time Machine" section of that guide because we assumed we wouldn't need to since we're not needing that function.

What are we missing?

Ubuntu Servers :: Error 13: Invalid Or Un Supported Executable Format?

Aug 4, 2010

Ubuntu 9.04 server (64bit)
(2) 320 WD HDD - RAID 1

After coming home one evening I found my server was turned off. My suspicions lead me to believe we had a storm and the power went off, then the UPS went off and finally at that point the server went off too. I think my server was set to allow security updates. After it turned of and restarted it seems it made a change to Grub and upgraded it to Grub2. In doing so I now get the following message:

Error 13: Invalid or un supported executable format

I have tried to do the following:


This solved the problem for me, from > url

Quote:boot from the live medium and chroot into the Linux installation:

$ sudo mkdir /mnt/linux
$ sudo mount -t ext4 /dev/sda1 /mnt/linux

Then, the following command should resolve the issue. :

$ sudo grub-install --recheck /dev/sda

Networking :: PPTP Connection From WAN / Gets To "verifying Username And Password", And Then Returns Error 619?

Jun 10, 2009

I have set up an ubuntu server running PPTP Server for VPN connections. I can successfully connect from a laptop within the LAN, but taking that same machine to an internet connection and trying to connect back in does not work. The only difference is that when I connect from within the network, I am obviously using the server's LAN (non-routable) address, and when I am connecting from outside the network (from Verizon Business DSL ), I am using the Comcast connection's static IP address.

I have a static IP address on a Comcast Business Class internet connection. Router is set to forward pptp and GRE ports.

VPN Server <- Laptop
iPhone -> Internet -> Router -> VPN Server

Does not work:
Laptop -> Internet -> Router -> VPN Server

Here is the weird thing. I have an iPhone that connects flawlessly every time through it's AT&T data connection. The laptop however, gets to "verifying username and password", and then returns error 619. It seems that there is an issue only when going through the router using the PPTP client built into MS windows.

I have attempted to find a solution via web search, but have had difficulty finding a solution that is appropriate for my situation.
