Ubuntu :: Change Password New And Old Do Not Authenticate?

Jan 10, 2010

I tried to change my password through the Users and Groups dialogue, and now neither the old one nor the new one work. I tried to do it once, and it didn't do anything (the password was still my old password), then the second time I did it, when I went to save the configuration it wouldn't take my new password or my old one. Now I can't authenticate for anything.

A wicked backdoor I've noticed is that going into recovery mode offers you a root console without authentication. (Awesome, Linux, secure as all ****, seriously.) Is there any way to use this to set my user password without needing to authenticate?

Ubuntu :: Cannot Authenticate 10.10 Partition With Password

Mar 1, 2011

Today I've found out that I cannot authenticate and use my ubuntu 10.10 partition as it doesn't recognize my password! The password is correct, I also tried to change the username in "root" but nothing changes. When I write it, it shows for some istants a black screen with words in it (so quickly that it's not easy to read) and then it shows me again the form to access.

Ubuntu :: Unable To Authenticate Password On Login Screen

Jan 17, 2011

I may be a beginner to Ubuntu 10.10, but I'm fairly certain that this is weird: I have had no trouble logging into my Ubuntu 10.10 netbook until this morning. Now I am unable to get past the login screen. It says that there is an Authentication Failure, which is bogus. Not only should the password work, but it does in the Terminal. I am able to login to the terminal and gain root access.

I can even change my unix password, but no matter what I try I can't get to my desktop. I did run into a major issue with a frozen program. Rather than reboot, I tried to close it using the kill command. What ended up happening was that all that remained was my wallpaper, probably a bad move on my part, but I'm a rookie. I think I killed all running applications. This happened last night... so probably related.

Software :: Cannot Authenticate Root Password / Make It Possible?

Jul 9, 2011

Lots of password threads, but I didn't see this.
Installing Debian amd64 on a Dell Optiplex 740.
The default install (simple graphical) works OK. But when I install "graphical expert", the same root password seems to be OK during the install, but doesn't work when the system comes up.

A. I have used a very short pw. It worked before.
B. The root pw is the same as the user pw. It worked before.

I am installing from CD and from DVD, both downloaded and burned as iso. In both cases, I asked for "graphical desktop" and "standard utilities", no servers, no laptop, no SQL.

Server :: Authenticate Users To Apache By Host/ISP And Password?

Aug 13, 2010

I am wondering how websites like banks are able to determine if you have previously used a certain computer to access the website, even if your router's IP address may have changed and your system's cookies have been cleared. I have users that need to access our HTTP intranet from outside locations. Those locations will have dynamic IP addresses most of the time, so I can't just "allow from [ip]" in my Apache proxy configuration. Originally we considered a VPN, but determined that a VPN will be overkill to access just an internal website, since we do not want external users to have permission to the rest of the network, only the website.I currently have it working over HTTPS with basic authentication against an internal LDAP server, but I want a little more security for such an important website.

crappy diagram:
[user]-->(internet via https)-->[apache gateway]-->(intranet)-->[http server]

Have dual boot winXP, FC6 computer. Clobbered something so FC6 does not boot.

How to get to desktop, and is there a way to get to my old home files in linux fc6 in native linux partition?

Ubuntu Installation :: HDD Seems To Stop Working After Some Time

Sep 29, 2010

I recently bought a Shuttle XS-35 Mini-Barebone-PC and filled it with a 2GB Corsair RAM and a 1 TB WD Scorpion Blue Drive.After assembling all the parts I simply wanted to install Ubuntu but it simply doesn't work. However then I had the idea it would be good to kinda get the drive to a completely clean state and used the tools to safely wipe the whole HDD (by writing zeros everywhere as the tool tells me). The tool ran good for around 30 minutes but suddenly the write speed showing in the console window would go down to 0B/s (meaning basically nothing at all I suppose). I tried it 2 more times and it always came to a halt at the 10-20GB mark.

So this lead me to belief that that is also the problem while installing, that my drive doesn't want to wark anymore but rather just sleep a bit.What could be the problem? Is it a hardware error? Is there some linux system setting that could whip my HDD whenever it gets lazy? Did I do something else wrong?

Ubuntu :: Stop Asking For Password Every Five Minutes?

May 25, 2010

I feel sure there must be an easy solution, but Im damned if I can find it. Im sure I've looked everywhere. Even when Im watching ....., the screen goes dark and when I touch the mouse, Im asked for my password again. It really is very very annoying. I go and make a drink, come back, and there it is again - I have to type my password again.

Ubuntu :: Stop Asking For Password So Many Times?

Jun 6, 2010

Whenever I turn on my computer, asks, (after I enter my login password) for the password for my "default keyboard settings" (or something like that) 4 times and my WEP 128 (whatever that is) password. I just hit "cancel" or the little "x" in the corner, but it's a bit of a nuisance to do it each time I turn on my computer.

How do I get Ubuntu to stop asking me for my password for so many things?

Ubuntu :: Stop The Password Requests?

Jan 26, 2011

I'm the only one who uses or has access to my computer, so I don't need the password security that others might. Frankly, it pisses me off to have to enter my password every time I leave the computer for a few minutes, or want to make the many tweaks that are necessary to get a system going, whether it's installing software or anything else. How do I stop it?

Ubuntu :: Recording Several Desktops And Each Sounds At Same Time / Stop It?

Sep 28, 2010

I'm trying to develop a system that records different desktops at the same time. I have developed a audio-videochat system and I want to be able to record what happens in every room, so my starting idea was:

1) Open a graphic terminal for each room. I have succeeded using vncserver :NumberDisplay.
2) In each terminal, run firefox at each URL. I succeeded too because firefox lets me specify in wich NumberDisplay I want it to be open
3) In each terminal, run recordmydesktop to record. It allows too to specify the NumberDisplay.

My problem now is that it seems that the sound card is "shared", so the sounds recorded in the display 1 includes the sound generated in all others firefox windows. I havnt found an analogy for the sound as the display is for the graphics.

I have thought some ideas but I havnt been able to materialize anyone.
Im tried to create virtual sound cards and specify one for each vncserver, I tried to redirect the sound of each firefox window to one "channel" (read firefox delegates the sound so that might not be an option), I read many things about pulseaudio, jack and several stuff that I just havnt been able to work.

Ubuntu :: How To Stop Disk Check Every Time On Boot Up

Dec 19, 2010

Every time I boot up I have to go through a disk check and then restart, how do I stop it from happening? When the disk checks happening I press escape and it usually says its deleted inode something because it has zero Dtime or some thing similar and also a paragraph of repeated lines saying something like all system files need alsa base.cnfg it will be ignored in a future release then the disk check completes and it restarts and is fine then, also sometimes it says dev/sda5 (my ubuntu partition) was not cleanly unmounted check forces. Is their a way to stop this happening as it ends up taking ages just to login.

OpenSUSE Network :: Network Manager Requires To Enter Password Every Time - Login To Unlock Password Keyring?

Jan 29, 2009

I've tried Ubuntu, Arch, and most recently Fedora but the SUSE GNOME environment blows everything else away!

The only problem (so far) is that Network Manager requires you to enter your password every time you login to unlock the password keyring. I want to disable this.

I think some distros disable the prompt by using the login password to unlock the keyring, but I use auto-login (if that makes a difference).

Ubuntu :: Stop Update Manager From Always Asking For Password?

Sep 2, 2010

I recently set up an Ubuntu computer for a friend who is new to Ubuntu and who is complaining that very often, Ubuntu's Update Manager pops up and asks for password to install updates. How could we make the Update Manager install updates quietly in the background without interrupting and asking for password? Maybe this should even be set as default in forthcoming versions of Ubuntu!

Ubuntu :: Stop Upstart Services From Staring At Boot Time?

Sep 18, 2010

What is the correct way to stop upstart services from staring at boot time ? I'm doing something like this example in /etc/init/mysql.conf:

#start on (net-device-up
# and local-filesystems
# and runlevel [2345])
start on runlevel [!0123456] # I ADDED THIS LINE (and commented the above ones)
stop on runlevel [016]

1. Is this the correct way ?

2. Is there no way of doing something like we do with update-rc.d -f apache2 remove ?

3. When will ubuntu ship a gui to add or remove services from boot ?

Ubuntu :: Stop Bootup Password For Encrypted Swap?

May 8, 2010

I've set up a Lucid system with software RAID and encryption, with three encrypted partions - swap (/dev/md1), the root filesystem (/dev/md2), and /home (/dev/md3). The unencrypted /boot partition is /dev/md0.

This works well but the passphrase had to be entered three times at bootup. Obviously it would be preferable to enter the passphrase once to unlock the root partition, then have the others unlocked via key files. So I added key files to the swap and home partitions and modified /etc/crypttab to use them:

md1_crypt UUID=8066adbc-584c-4766-b188-bc2a7b61a2f0 /root/keys/swap-key luks,swap
md2_crypt UUID=bac82294-f3b9-45e4-89ad-407cf8b19b7b none luks
md3_crypt UUID=7d82a0b7-c811-4cc3-9fe7-1961c74b5ff2 /root/keys/home-key luks
The key files are owned by root and have 0400 protection. (The /root/keys


Since the swap partition is no longer referenced in fstab or crypttab, why is there still a bootup password prompt for it? What else needs to be done to stop it?

Ubuntu Security :: Keyring Password - Why And How To Stop Being Asked For It?

Sep 28, 2010

When I installed Ubuntu (Lucid) on my new computer, As well as the login password I was asked for a keyring password. I gave one, but I am not sure exactly why I need this password. It seems that it was required to let me access the wifi - even though this has its own security code. I found I could stop the system asking for it every time I tried to connect to the internet using wifi by checking a button in the network setup, but when I registered for Ubuntu One, I was again asked for it - twice, once when I registered and again when I set up Tomboy notes sync. Now I get asked for it again every time I switch on.

I would like to know why the keyring passwords are needed in addition to the login password for a single user computer, which mine is and also how I can stop it asking for this password when I switch the computer on. One suggestion I have seen is to make the keyring password the same as my login password. If that is the case, then how do I change the keyring password?
