Ubuntu :: Unable To Edit Either Fstab Or Xorg.conf

Feb 13, 2010

I am running Ubuntu 9.04 on an Acer Aspire laptop and have broken my display system while trying to use the restricted drivers for the nvidia graphics card.

Basically I downloaded and activated the restricted driver. I rebooted and now ubuntu freezes on startup.

I can get access to the command line but am unable to edit either fstab or xorg.conf because ubuntu has mounted the filesystem in read only mode.

I have read and tried all the options given in this posting [URL] but because I cant read or write any of the files I cant seem to affect any change to the system

Security :: Setting File Permissions For File /var/log/Xorg.0.log?

Jul 7, 2009

i am trying to set the file permissions for the log files "/var/log/Xorg.0.log" and "/var/log/gdm/:0.log". These files seem to be created when a user logs into a whokstation (my guess so far). I am trying to comply with a security mandate that all log files in the directory /var/log are set to 0640. The two mentioned files always seem to have the permissions 0644, does anyone know where and when these filea are created and how I might set the permissions when the files are created

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Cannot Move Old Log File "/var/log/Xorg.0.log" To "/var/log/Xorg.0.log.old"

Apr 3, 2011

Just upgraded a desktop to openSUSE 11.4 with KDE, and I'm encountering various graphical problems. This machine's been running SUSE versions since 10.0 on similar hardware with few major issues, and I did the 'upgrade' by reinstalling the root partition and keeping the /home partition intact. It has a Radeon 9600 AGP card, which goes under the R300 and RV350AP monikers, and uses the radeon driver (too old for the proprietary ATI driver - deprecated). With the new KMS, it boots up fine under the monitor's correct resolution of 1440x900, though occasionally and randomly then drops to 1024x768 at the login screen. On occasions it will then arrive at the desktop under this lower resolution, other times it corrects itself before getting there.

On starting KDE, the taskbar cycles through various different settings (composited / non-composited) and colours with erroneous shadows. I've tried disabling desktop effects which at least resolves that particular issue. More troublesome is that certain actions result in a garbled display from which it is almost impossible to recover without guessing various keystrokes to cause a logout. Two examples are when running the regular (non-OpenGL) KDE slide show screen saver, when certain transformations corrupt the entire screen, and when opening the Tools -> Options dialog in LibreOffice, though strangely this only causes a problem under one user account and not another.

Running dmesg, I note it is being littered with:

Code:

[drm:radeon_vga_detect] *ERROR* VGA-1: probed a monitor but no|invalid EDID yet I have just the one VGA monitor which is VGA-0, and set as such under KDE. Not sure if that's related or a separate issue.I tried adding 'nomodeset' at boot, but it brings me to a console login and after entering 'startx' I get:

Code:

xauth: file /home/[user]/.serverauth.2891 does not exist

Fatal server error:

Cannot move old log file "/var/log/Xorg.0.log" to "/var/log/Xorg.0.log.old"
xinit: giving up
xinit: unable to connect to X server: Connection refused
xinit: server error

[code]...

Booting in failsafe mode gets me into KDE but with other weirdness and problems using the desktop. I don't know if KMS is ultimately the culprit or there's some other obvious problem, but this is what I'm left with after a 'fresh' installation (despite the /home partition still being kept from openSUSE 11.3). It's not my PC so I need to leave it in a usable state knowing these corruptions aren't going to occur, and I leave the country next week.

Ubuntu :: Can't Edit A File

May 7, 2010

I am trying to edit a C++ source file, but gedit wont allow me to save changes to it. Gedit says:

Code:
A file with the same name already exists. Please use a different name.

Right. Of course the file exists, I am trying to edit an existing file.

About the same happens with kate... Kate opens the file in read-only mode.

However, if I edit the same file with nano, editing and saving works. So the problem shouldn't be with access rights. Also "ls" shows rw rights to the file.

What could be the problem? I can use nano, but I would need the syntax highlightind, and other features of a better editor.

And whether I use sudo or not has no effect. The same happens with or without sudo, and I am the owner of the file.

PS. luckily I am still dual booting with Hardy. I can always go back.

Oh and this is a new installation of ubuntu 10.04

Ubuntu :: How To Edit File Owned By Root

May 31, 2010

I am trying to edit limits.conf, changed file permissions:
sudo chmod limits.conf -rwxrwxrwx

But got this message:
"Could not save the file /etc/security/limits.conf. You are trying to save the file on a read-only disk. Please check´╗┐ that you typed the location correctly and try again."

I followed these instructions:
"copy - paste this code into terminal
gedit $HOME/.gnome2/nautilus-scripts/Open as root
copy-paste this text into that file and push 'save'
for uri in $NAUTILUS_SCRIPT_SELECTED_URIS; do
gnome-sudo "gnome-open $uri" &
done

now copy-paste this code into terminal
chmod +x $HOME/.gnome2/nautilus-scripts/Open as root

Now you can right click on the file you want to edit, select 'scripts' and say 'open as root' to let you modify it". [URL] the right click worked but the file didn't open.
