Ubuntu :: Kmozillahelper With Vanilla Firefox?

Jun 2, 2010

I'm using KDE (Kubuntu) and I was wondering about integration of Firefox into KDE. I know that kmozillahelper provides this and so I installed it. But the thing is, I compile Firefox myself with some custom optimisations, so I don't use Firefox from the repositories.

The firefox from the repositories uses kmozillahelper but my compiled firefox (even the mozilla provided firefox) does not.

Ubuntu Security :: Vanilla SSH And Other Apps That Want To Use It

Dec 8, 2010

I've got an Ubuntu 10.04 box (up to date) with a MySQL database that I log into remotely via an SSH tunnel. In order to make this secure, I've remapped the SSH port to something obscure, and locked down the firewall to allow only this port.

I've disabled password login, and get in via a 1024-bit RSA key, which has an attached passphrase.Right now, it works like a charm. However, I've become interested in trying out NoMachine NX as a way of working on the Ubuntu machine (VNC works, but is not an option). NoMachine NX requires a DSA key without a passphrase, and is not interested (as far as I know) in playing nicely with my existing RSA keys.

My question, for you security experts, is this. Do I have to scrap my existing SSH config and start fresh with NX in mind? Or is there a way around this? Moreover, if I do that, and get NX working, will I still be able to use Putty to tunnel in as I do now, for using the database?

Ubuntu Installation :: Why Is Gparted NOT Installed On Vanilla

Feb 5, 2010

I have always been amazed that despite the fact that the liveCD obviously has gparted on it, that it is doesn't install it. Why not?I understand it is a tool with which you can easily damage your system, but that's no reason not to give it to users, once its aready taking up space on the liveCD.

Installation :: Install Vanilla Kernel To Other Ubuntu Server?

Jun 13, 2010

I am trying to compile a new vanilla kernel on to my Ubuntu server system which has been freshly installed with Ubuntu 10.04 server 32bits. As this will run on a VIA epia-px5000eg mainboard with USB stick I want compile this kernel on a different machine on which is also ubuntu 10.04 installed. Unfortunately currently I experience difficulties when I boot kernel 2.6.34; it says "Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: unable to mount root fs on unknown block" while if I load to original kernel that comes with Ubuntu 10.04 all works perfectly well. BTW reason I want to build a custom vanilla kernel is to trim down kernel to the necessary services I need as I am running a server that requires just the essentials. And it needs to support the VIA Epia CPU processor family ( C3, C7 or generic setting which is another hurdle which I won't discuss here ).

Hopefully one out there is able to guide me further as I type step by step what I executed. Thanks for your replies in advance:

Yet I hook up the VIA epia-px5000g with 2gb usb stick, a dvd drive and keyboard ( all usb ). Boot from CDrom and install a minimal system (<f4>) to usb stick. Partitioning part I set it to EXT4 and used full size thus no SWAP. Also mount option " noatime " has been set all to save writes to usb stick.
When the base system has been installed a user has been added, as well apt is being configured to install only security updates automatically. As services I want to run definitely openSSH-server so I can access remotely. Grub gets configured and system will be rebooted.

At this stage I configure the network interface to a static address so I do not need to check my router all the time which dhcp address Ubuntu is using if I want to access remotely.

Now the compile part starts, the ubuntu way. I log in to my other system and execute following commands accordingly code...

Debian :: Xterm Vim All Vanilla In New Install?

Fedora :: Compiling A Vanilla Kernel?

Apr 9, 2010

I am trying to compile a vanilla kernel that I got from git in a VirtualBox VM running Fedora 12. With RHEL (albeit on real hardware, not a VM), I am able to do a make; make modules_install; make install and simply able to boot up the kernel. The make install step, in particular, creates the initrd using /sbin/installkernel, which also updates the grub configuration.

Under Fedora 12, my new kernel does not boot. I see no messages on the screen, not even if I change the boot command line to remove quiet bootup. I see disk usage on the VM and the CPU gets pegged at 100%. Strangely enough, if I change the initrd to refer to an existing, Fedora-provided kernel, I can boot my new kernel without any problems. I started with a Fedora kernel config and used it to generate the config for my new 2.6.33 kernel, so it couldn't be the case that I missed something in the config either.

Does anybody have an idea about what could be going on? Is there some specific patch that Fedora kernels use that are essential for booting up?

Also, the guest Fedora OS is 64-bit, if that is relevant.

Fedora X86/64bit :: Boot From A Vanilla Kernel Without Initrd?

Oct 17, 2010

I've downloaded 2.6.36-rc8 vanilla kernel, then I copied .config file from my current working kernel 2.6.32.21-168.fc12.x86_64, then I've configured, compiled and installed kernel like this:

Code:
make gconfig
make -j4 all (or make all)
make modules_all
make install
The last command edits my grub.conf file and writes this:
[Code]....

I checked my .config and ACPI, and File Systems are built into kernel and not loaded as modules... And, I have LVM but my /boot partition isn't in it, so I don't HAVE to use initrd, right? How can I boot from a vanilla kernel without initrd ?

Fedora :: Compile A Vanilla Kernel On The Easy/lazy Way?

Apr 29, 2010

I thought I would give some instructions on how I compile my kernels. My long-time windows user parts trader recently asked me how to compile a kernel on Fedora. He was confused with all the tutorials requiring you to build an RPM, so I showed him how I do it, the standard/easy/lazy way. Before I start, here are a couple things I assume. I assume you are a Fedora user and that you are NOT in text mode, but in GNOME. I also assume you realize that this can take up to SIX HOURS on an old Pentium 3 1.3Ghz. Remember that some proprietary drivers as well as some free ones are not included in the kernel, so make sure you don't delete your existing one.

First get the dependencies you need.
su -c "yum -y install gcc ncurses-devel"

Next get the kernel source. I use 2.6.33.3 as an example. To download it, click here.Extract it by right-clicking on the file and then choosing extract here. This will take about five minutes. Now open a terminal, become root, and cd to the directory linux-2.6.33.3. It is important to cd here and not to the kernel directory inside of there, even though make has an extra variable that specifies there.

Now we need to configure the kernel before we build it with make O=kernel menuconfig. It will take a couple minutes to set up, then you will be presented with a cheap psuedo-gui in your terminal. Just select exit and yes to save your config. You usually don't need to change anything here.

Ready to compile and install? Remember this can take up to six hours, and your machine may become VERY slow. It is not recommended that you attempt to use your machine with this in progress. OK then. As root, in the same directory, type:

make O=kernel && make O=kernel modules_install install. This will compile the kernel and install the kernel and it's modules. Done? Now change the kernel and initrd in your bootloader to match the new kernel. If you ever want to reuse the same source code folder, use make mrproper to clean things up and build it again.

Ubuntu :: Firefox BEta 5 - Roll Back And Keep Firefox At Latest Stable Release?

How do i roll back firefox5beta to firefox4 and keep updating to the latest stable releases w/out upgrading to beta?

Ubuntu :: Firefox 3.5.7 (ubuntuzilla Upgrade) Does Not Fully Quit / Crashes Firefox

Jan 9, 2010

I recently upgraded (via Ubuntuzilla) to firefox 3.5.7 and now, every single time I close Firefox, the program seems to crash without quitting completely.

First, I receive an error saying that the program will not close and asks me if I want to Force Quite or Wait for it to close on its own. This has been happening ever since I upgraded to Karmic and if I just wait it usually quits fully after a couple seconds.

Now what happens is this: the window still closes, but if I try to reopen Firefox then I get this error stating that Firefox is already open and therefore cannot be opened again. The only way to get back into Firefox is to restart the entire computer. (Incidentally, this is the same problem that occurs whenever I try to Force Quit Firefox)

This now happens every single time I "close" Firefox.

Does anyone know the source of this error? Or a workaround?

Ended up with "Namoroka" which seems to be Firefox 3.6, and it's a prerelease version.

Flash works under my admin id but not under normal user id. Reinstalling Flash didn't help. Want to revert to Firefox 2 that came with Ubuntu 8.04 so Flash will work again.

Can't uninstall "Namoroka" - uninstalled Firefox-3 but it's still hanging in there!

Fedora Networking :: Firefox Says "Firefox Can't Find The Server?

I have no idea what caused it.. command line nslookup works great, and resolves everything.But firefox and pidgin will not resolve anything.

General :: Use Firefox To Connect To Smb Shares Error "Firefox Doesn't Know How To Open This Address, Because The Protocol (smb) Isn't Associated With Any Program"

Jan 10, 2010

i am wanting to use Firefox to connect to my smb shares. However, i keep getting this error message: Firefox doesn't know how to open this address, because the protocol (smb) isn't associated with any program. My client configuration is as follows: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-GB; rv:1.9.1.8pre) Gecko/20100106 Ubuntu/9.10 (karmic) Shiretoko/3.5.8preI tried the instructions below to try and fix the problem with no success: Quote: From [URL]

Linux with Firefox In order to connect to a network share directly from you browser under Linux, you must configure Firefox to handle URL's starting with "smb://". This is done by typing "about:config" in the address line and hitting return. After that you must right-click the list of settings and choose "New -> Boolean" as shown below.

As name you must type: "network.protocol-handler.external.smb" with a value of "true". After that you must do the same thing over again, but this time choose "New -> String", type the name: "network.protocol-handler.app.smb" with a value of the path to the application you wish to use for browsing network shares. If you use KDE, this will typically be "/usr/bin/konqueror".
