CentOS 5 :: Encrypted 4 Partitions - Entering Password Just Once?

Feb 28, 2010

I just installed CentOS 5.4 (x86_64) and I encrypted my /home /var /tmp and /mnt/Storage partitions, along with my swap partition. My only complaint is that when I boot, I have to enter my password 4 times, and I did not pick a short password. The password is the same for all 4 partitions. Is there anyway I can set things up so I can just type my password once? Once I get everything set up, I won't be booting that often, but right now it is a PIA.

Debian :: Make System Ask Password For Encrypted Partitions Only Once Not For Each Of Them?

May 29, 2011

I have installed debian 6 on two of my laptops. During installation I chose to encrypt my partitions (swap, root and home). Now I find it annoying that during boot up I'm asked for password, for each of these partions seperately. I have given same password for all three of them. How can I make the system ask for the password only once. I know it can be done because on fedora it was like that before.

Ubuntu :: BUG When Entering Root Password?

Dec 5, 2010

Whenever I am prompted to enter the root password, typical example would be in 'Power Management' clicking the button 'Make Default', pressing ENTER or clicking AUTHENTICATE doesn't close the box. To get passed this I have to press ALT+F4 and it continues which I'm assuming still does authenticate.

Ubuntu :: Echo Password When Entering In Rar?

Dec 28, 2010

When I use rar e to extract a rar file, the request for entry of the password always says password will not be echoed. For longer passwords, this is difficult, since a single mistyped key will result in an error.

Does anyone know how I can use the rar command to extract and have the password echoed (appear on the screen as I type it)?

General :: Switch Users Without Entering Password?

Mar 12, 2010

I'm a newbie running Ubuntu 9.10. I have two users (wife and me), and each user's screensaver is set to lock so that on wakeup, we get to choose which user's desktop to go to. However, Ubuntu requires a password, so this is pretty tedious.I'd like to switch users without entering any password. I know about this trick that works for the boot login, but it doesn't deal with multiple users.Is it possible to set empty passwords for users in Ubuntu, or skip the password in other ways?(I'm expecting real Linux users to suggest that passwordless users must not get any rights and there be an admin user with a strong password.

Debian :: Switch Users Without Entering Password?

Mar 12, 2011

Is it possible to switch users in Debian without entering a password, as in Ubuntu Maverick? I already tried adding a nopasswdlogin group but it did not work, even though the "don't ask for password on login" entry in the login manager is no longer greyed out. Replacing gdm3 with gdm also did not work.

OpenSUSE Install :: Go To NFTS Hdd Partition Without Entering Password?

Jul 19, 2010

I am liking Opensuse, but have a problem when using my NFTS partitions (dual boot so docs on this partition). I always have to enter a password which annoys me to no end. Most distributions do this, in fact only for Mandriva have I been able to find out how to do this without a password. Is it possible with Opensuse?

Ubuntu Security :: Erase A Partition Without Entering A Password?

Jan 2, 2010

I've installed Karmic after having used Jaunty in the past and it's working great, but I have a couple of security questions...

I opened the Disc Utility (Palimpsest) under System>Administration and was amazed that it looks like it will let me delete partitions on my hard drive, and without even asking for a password. This seems like an enormous security oversight, what am I missing here? Is there a bug filed for this?

Also related, why does Ubuntu allow a user to disable startup applications without requiring a password?

Ubuntu :: Very Long Time From Entering Password To Ready Desktop?

Jan 8, 2010

I have an unreasonably long time to wait from log in, to when my desktop is ready, it takes 40 seconds from hitting enter to seeing my files on the desktop, and about another 15 seconds from then to hearing the opening jingle. It used not to be this way, before it took less than 10 seconds, but about 4 days ago this time shot up suddenly, is there some way to diagnose whats causing this delay?

Ubuntu Installation :: Entering Username And Password But It Doesn't Work?

Jun 10, 2011

I tried installing lubuntu 'over' ubuntu, but am now locked out. Basically, the login screen loads, I've tried entering my username and password, but it doesn't work. I'm not really sure of my username as Ubuntu would automatically fill it in for me. But lubuntu isn't auto-loading my username, so I've been trying to enter all types of variations. I am 100% of my password though

I tried getting help at lubuntu's chat, but that's been kind of hard since there aren't that many people responding. The lubuntu people had me go into recovery mode (2.6.38-8 recovery) and so that would go smoothly. But when the screen of the options of resume, clean, dpkg, failsafex, etc, I cannot move the selector down. So basically, the orange selector is stuck at resume. Whenever I press the down key, the computer runs some lines, and I cannot go back to the list of options. The list is still visible, but can't select any of the options.

If I press the 'end' button, that executes something (probably the last option in the list), and I shut down the pc when it did that. The other arrow keys do nothing. The tab button manages to move the selector from the list to 'Ok' and 'Cancel.' But I cannot move the selector down.. TL;DR: I need to either get into recovery mode, or find a way to get my exact username lubuntu thinks it is.

Ubuntu Networking :: Skip Entering The Keyring Password For Wireless On Login?

Apr 19, 2010

Well, first off I'd like to say that I am much happier with the wireless on Ubuntu 10.04 than I was on 8.10 (the last time I tried Ubuntu). However, there is a small annoyance I'd like to fix: every time I log in, I get a prompt saying that an application (the wireless network manager) is requesting the password for such-and-such keyring. I have to enter the password before I can connect to my network. Is there a way to get around this somehow so that I don't have to enter the keyring password for this keyring (the "default" keyring) every time I log in?

Ubuntu Servers :: Entering Correct Password For Sudo Results In Segfault After 2 Attempts

Feb 2, 2011

I cannot sudo nor log into a second ssh session on my Ubuntu 10.10 server edition headless setup. Entering an incorrect password works as expected but the correct password gives errors, and on the second attempt a segfault. I recently changed my password as the old one was about to expire, that was 3 days ago, I can't find evidence that I have sudo'ed or logged in a second session since, I have been logged into it via ssh throughout all of it and I am still currently logged in. What should I do to correct this problem? I'm worried that by turning it off I will lose all access. Is the only option using a live cd to change the password?

i am having a problem with the installation with ubuntu 10.10 during the installation, i was entering my setup info (login password, timezone, etc.) when everything stopped working, it wouldnt let me continue, the forward button wouldnt work. i let it set for a good 30 minutes but it wouldnt do anything.

Ubuntu :: Automatically Mounting Encrypted Partitions ?

Nov 24, 2010

I've created some encrypted partitions using Disk Utility, and would like them to be automatically mounted when Ubuntu starts up. Is there a guide to this anywhere?

I've gathered that it involves /etc/crypttab and possibly /etc/init.d/cryptdisks, but haven't had much success so far.

Ideally, some of the partitions would mount early in the boot process, while some of them can mount after I've logged in.

Fedora :: Disable Plymouth Mounting Of Encrypted Partitions?

Jan 23, 2010

I just updated a system to Fedora 12. It has the same partition setup as the previous Fedora 11, but now when booting it pauses with a padlock icon next to a text entry box.I'm assuming it's trying to get my password to mount the encrypted partitions I have on the drive.

However, most of the time when I'm using that computer, I don't want those partitions mounted, and I would prefer to do a luksOpen/mount manually during those times I need the data thereon. Is there a way to get plymouth to ignore those encrypted partitions while it's booting, so that bootup doesn't pause for user input? I have an empty /etc/crypttab and the partitions in question are not in /etc/fstab.
For anyone who's looking at this, pass "rd_NO_LUKS" on the command line to disable the initrd from looking for encrypted partitions to try to mount.
