When logged in as my standard user in Fedora 11 gnome desktop the installed ntfs-config tool will not open and gives an error which says this; "no authentication program found", and to run that ntfs-config as the root in a terminal. So then the only way to open that tool is to type that in a terminal, and it did open, but how can I fix this ? Can this issue be related to ownership and permissions of it ? Also the num lock does not come on during boot up, is there a easy fix for that too ? This is a recent fresh updated install from the DVD with the ext4 file system. All the ntfs-3g applications are installed as default, so I just added that enable ntfs write support tool with the package manager.
I just done a brand new install of fed12 and did all the yum updates. Apache seems to start ok and I always liked the http config tool but it won't run on Fedora 12. I downloaded and installed system-config-httpd.noarch 5:1.4.6-1.fc12 and it all went fine but when I try to start it I get the usual box asking for my root password, I type it in and press enter, the box disappears and then....nothing. If I run system-config-httpd in a terminal I get the same box asking for root passowrd but when I enter it I get a long scroll of text which ends with:
line 4: 2137 Aborted (core dumped) /usr/bin/python /usr/share/system-config-httpd/ApacheConf.py
I don't know what causes this. Is there any way to get the http config tool working?
I am new to Linux and I am trying to set up a mail server using postfix. I have done all the configurations(hopefully correct) and all the test seems to work except 2 things.
1) Postfix is running but when I try to restart the service it always fails. I checked the /var/log folder and there are no error messages. 2) When I try sending e-mails using outlook, outlook fails to connect to my server.
I am wondering if I have done the configurations properly. I am a little confused in regards to hostname and domain name. When I do a hostname on the terminal I see the hostname that I gave my server. When I do the domainname command however, domain is none. Is it necessary to have a domain to configure postfix? I have myhostname = my.hostname.com what should my domainname = to if there is none. If I do require a domain name how to I create one? I need to be able to access e-mail from external clients.
I'm running Ubuntu Server 11.04 with OpenSSH, trying to create an ssh tunnel (for web traffic) to it from my (also Ubuntu) laptop. This is the command I'm using to create the tunnel:
Code: ssh -ND localhost:8080 firstname.lastname@example.org I had it all working on a virtual machine.. which was deleted What settings/lines do I need to change/add from the default OpenSSH config files to get tunnelling to work? I've Googled and AllowTcpForwarding is set to yes, as is X11Forwarding.. but it still doesn't work. Chrome can connect to the server, but says the connection was closed before any data was sent.
I am running a server with a GRSecurity patched Kernel 220.127.116.11. I've tried to optimize the kernel as much as I can and know it (removing options, not needed drivers and so on) and compiled the modules into the kernel (no loadable modules anymore). I've started with Slackware 13.0 and the default config for 18.104.22.168-huge. Still I am not sure what to remove/optimize further now.
My question: Is there a way to boot with a kernel with loadable modules, check which modules are really needed for this hardware, (do something like lsmod) and save the running configuration modules for a next kernel compile to be the default .config instead of writing them down by hand and search for the appropriate names in .config or during menuconfig? (Note: zcat /proc/config.gz > .config is NOT the way I want, as it gives me just the current kernel config)
When I install the FC11 by using"Install or upgrade an existing system"or"Install system with basic video driver"mode...Point 1, I can't config the network config ( IP Address ), due to theerror of network manager...Point 2, I can't enter into the text mode to do the installation steps.Remark:The machine is provide Web,DNS, and Mail Server on the NET ( Internet )
I have little problem with gpk servce pack (from gpk-package-extra package). When im trying to make list of my packages in system i have:
Can't write the file, no permissions. OK, but when i run gpk service package as root, program freeze, i click create packages list option but application never create this file, status is always on 0%, even after 1 hour. I saw video tutorial, where base are created by normal user i /home - why i can't Console says nothing about this.
My computer has several partitions and OS:s on it, including beloved Ubuntu. If I want a total and identic clone of my HD, would dd be the way to go?Would it also preserve GRUB, bootrecords, etc? I'm after something that is at least as workable as Norton Ghost and from what I've read dd would to the trick.
I have a Brother MFC-7440N which has Linux drivers, but I can't get useful scans yet. It prints fine, but the only scanning software I've found so far, XSane and a utility just called "Scanner Utility" are both useless.
XSane is no good because it crashes every time I try to scan something.
Scanner Utility has a few problems. Unless I set the paper size to "Legal," it keeps cutting off the bottom few inches of my (US letter-size) document. It's the same, regardless of whether I scan from the auto document feeder, or with the original on the glass. Also the orientation is screwed up. When I select "Portrait," the scan comes out rotated 90 degrees, exactly the opposite of what I'd expect.
I also don't like that there's no way to go back and change the scan settings. If I want to scan another document or at a different resolution, I have to quit Scan Utility and run it again.
Neither utility will scan to a .pdf. XSane gives the option, but like I said, it crashes every time I try to scan something.
Is there a scanning program available for Ubuntu that actually works, & will scan to a .pdf? Brother doesn't supply any scanning software for Linux, just drivers, so I have to find some 3rd-party utility.
