fC 12 hangs at auto logon. It was working fine and other than updates haven't made any changes. I have a backup image a week or so old that I can revert to, but was hoping to do a repair. Anyways it gets to the logon window and that's it.
I recently installed 32bit maverick and wanted to make it login automatically. I tried enabling auto login from Admin > Login but that didnt work and I was still prompted for my password. Then I went to Users & Groups and changed the password option to Do Not ask for password at login now after I reboot, the user list is shown (only 1 user) and it doesnt ask for password after I click on my username.
However, then it gives a few errors (as i vaguely recall):
1. cannot load .ICE directory in my home directory 2. some error 256 about a gconf-sanity-2 file 3. nautilus cannot load my home directory etc
and then it gets stuck without loading anything (blank wallpaper). i ve tried navigating to my home directory using Alt F2, gksudo nautilus and my home dir contents are encrypted by the ecryptfs (there is a readme.txt file and a shortcut). i have tried to decrypt but it doesnt work... i ve also tried to start/stop gdm, and startx but nothing works. if i stop gdm, then the prompt doesnt recognize my password and keeps on rejecting the commands i enter... I think this has something to do with the home dir not being decrypted due to the dont ask for paswd option... how can i disable the dont ask for pwd without the gui (i can access my / by booting through an external usb).
I have noticed that a common issue to several distros is the fact that the networking subsystem doesn't automatically detect the link if an ethernet connection is disconnected and then re-connected to the NIC after boot. If the ethernet cable is connected after the system is up and running, nothing happens - ethtool eth0 shows link detected: no, and you have to restart the network service to let the NIC know that there is in fact a link, and actually connect. I have a Fedora14 (KDE) box with a brand new Asus motherboard with embedded NIC. Everything works great except the auto-detect of a freshly connected ethernet connection if the link is down to begin with.
Am I missing a ethernet link sentinel utility or something, or is this just the way linux works? I have done plenty of research on plenty of posts, and it seems this is a common problem, with no solution other than manually or programatically restarting the network service in a script to detect the link after a disconnect.
I press On-button, Debian boots, logs in and automatically connects to the Wireless network AND! to my local pc via LAN. It runs an ssh server, so I can ssh into debian over internet and communicate with the local pc (send a magic packet).Here are my problems:
1) I don't how to log in automatically. This and this doesn't work. 2) I need a network tool that can manage multiple connections and has a reconnect feature. With the default network manager I cannot even connect to more than one network simultaneously although I have two network devices of course.
And I guess I can run all that in console mode, right?
I would like to exec a script whenever a user mount a device. The device could be an internal device (for example a partition on a second hard disk) or a removable one (for example a usb hard disk). The script must have sudo capabilities even if the user is not included in the admin group. Is it possible?
The specific question: I would like to add acl option to a device whenever it is mounted. I tried fstab but it's changing the behaviour of nautilus see:
[URL]... so I would like to create a script with the command
Code: sudo mount -o remount,acl /media/data and auto execute it any time data is mounted.
I recently installed a server with Software RAID. I tested by powering it down, unplugging one drive and powering it up. Magically, it worked!I found out later that I have to manually add individual devices like md1 to sda2 md2 to sda4. I got all of them added and rebuilt but my question is: Is there a way to make it so that if I "removed" a drive and put it back, the system will senses the new drive and rebuilds based on some internal table?
I upgrade my fedora 10 to fedora 11 without any issues but I noticed that now when I insert a dvd or cd it will not mount it automatically. Previously when I used fedora 10 it worked like a charm not it will not mount it. I just want when I insert cd or dvd my fedora to mount it automatically.
Since i installed fedora 12 i cannot successfully shutdown or reboot my pc as was possible with fedora 11: i already tried with no luck with desktop button, the commands 'poweroff', the 'shutdown -h now' and the 'reboot' but the system go to the bliking cursor and hangs without powering off (and reboot while requested). And i have to hard poweroff the system... (GRRRR)If i go on the console I can only see the system terminating services and saying "halting system" and then hangs...
Now i have kenel 188.8.131.52-115.fc12.i686.PAE, but this problem happened with last 5 preceeding.I use the mjm installation guide since fedora 7 (or later) and i had the following HW (lspci).
My fedora 14 is upgraded from fedora 13, which was upgraded from fedora 12. Everything seems fine, but recently I met across a very strange thing.Fedora 14 shutdown properly, but it won't reboot. It will hang at the last step(I guess that is the last step: [*****.*****] Restarting system.The picture of the last steps before it hangs is attached. Please someone give me a hint how to diagnose it ?
First time on the forum, excuse me if i'm posting this in the wrong area. So with that being said, here's what goes on - right before it gets into the loader, it hangs right before it gets to it, where it says it's going to load it.
On my local network, I use my Linux machine running dhcpd and IP masquerade as a gateway to the internet. As it is, the setup works just fine, and I've enabled dhcpd in all runlevels in the services dialog, but for some reason, it still does not automatically start when I boot the machine. If I select it and click "Start", it operates normally, and if I run "services dhcpd start" from a command line, that works too. My only guess is that it's some problem with my config file... it's the same setup I used with previous versions of Fedora without issues, but maybe things have changed?
Does anyone else have this problem. Came just after recent update and is highly annoying. Plug usb device in and it is recognized on lsusb but not mounting and appearing in media folder. How do I solve this. Searched the forum but nothing useful
Rebooting after an update I can't see any icon on the desktop (FC12, gnome).If I manually start nautilus they appear, but I obviously would like that to happen automatically. What could be the problem and how to solve it?
I have a server box running F12. Whenever networking is lost up-stream, obviously, my box loses it and the networking icon gets the "red" cancellation sign over it.Now, when up-stream connectivity returns, Fedora does not auto-connect. Instead I have to manually go to my office (grrrr), and simply click on the networking icon, click on the unselected radio button next to eth0 (its the only network interface), and I'm good again.To save me future weekend trips to the office.... How can I make sure this happens automatically
How do I have an auto completion feature for scp? I often need to 'scp ' a file to a remote server, then I type:
PHP Code: scp someprogram email@example.com I'd begin to type tab before or after the input of @. But the available choices are mainly: @localhost6, @localhost.localdomain, @localhost, etc..
Which file records these hosts name? Second, to execute a program in current directory, I have to type ./program, how can I omit the prefix, or I could type it as I type "octave",etc.
I currently mount my smb shares by adding the appropriate line to fstab. Now my son also uses my laptop (F13 by the way) and I would also like to automount the shares for him but as a different user because there are some directories he should not have access to.
I have been having this problem when playing music using Rhytmbox or Exaile.....The external HDD (sata through USB) automatically unmounts thereby stopping playback of music. I just have not been able to figure out how to stop "auto" unmount.
i have been using F10 and before that F8, so after release of F11 i couldn't resist to install. system specifications are:Intel Pentium D 2.8 GHzRAM 512MbHDD 80Gbthe only problem is that it ceases and it's unexpected. sometimes i loose my work although it is not of much importance but it is that way.for initial few times i hoped it as a bug. but i think it is not.i love Fedora i looking forward to use it.only my mouse is moving all others locks up.one thing i used "unexpected" because it all happens regardless of any specific applicationor any time duration.all i need after it happens is to restart manually using restart button.i don't know whether my graphics driver is right or not?graphics seems right but during scroll it doesn't looks good.
I have been using F10 since its release and have not had any trouble until now. During my last session, I ran an update. Today when I boot my desktop (single boot btw), it hangs just after the boot loader. The only sort of warning is:
eth0: link up, 100Mbps, full-duplex, 1pa 0x45E1
I have browsed the forums to no avail. Other have the same issue, but with no posted solution. I have tried disabling NetworkManager, but I think it may be the service that runs after NetworkManager.
