CentOS 5 :: GDM Could Not Write Authorization File

Dec 22, 2009

On Monday i had Centos 5.3 with / and /home in ext3, with no problems (at least i don't remember any problem).But as I decided to use XFS (I have a SSD , and i use a 3D Modeling software called Maya , that it's quite sure it could take advantage of use XFS), i decided to create in my new Solid State Disk , that i recently bought , a swap , a / partition formated in XFS , and a /home partition in XFS too.Then I used a Live cd to copy the contents from the old HDD to the new SSD , using find and Rsync --> (cd /mnt/oldroot/ ; find . -xdev -print0 | rsync -avHx --exclude-from /mnt/rsync-filter . /mnt/newroot/)

Once done , i edited fstab,Menu.lst , install grub in the MBR and i had to use mkinitrd to load the XFS.ko so be able to boot with the new system.All worked fine , although i only could log with the root , my normal user could not log , and a error appeared : GDM could not write your authorization file.This could mean that you are out of disk space or that your home directory could not be opened for writing.In any case it is not possible to login. Contact system administrator.But i remember that prior to Copy all to the new SSD , and use XFS , all was fine, and i was able to log with my user.

So thinking that perhaps the copy did by Rsync was not ok , or something i decided to reinstall Centos, now in a partition in my SSD and try another time , but without using a /home partition neither a normal user ,only using root.The SSD had a Swap , a 32 GB XFS partition and the / of the new Install in ext3 (20 GB ).Once installed Centos 5.3 , I updated only Glibc , yum and Python packages (like said in Centos 5.4 Release notes recommends , but not doing the final yum update)Then i updated only the kernel , to have a XFS supported Kernel , and then i rebooted (I would update all once migrated to xfs)

CentOS 5 :: Unable To Write To USB Drive

Oct 7, 2009

I have have Centos 5.3 which does not save files to USB drives. after copying over file to an empty drive the files are shown on the drive and can be opened and edited but when the drive is removed and reinserted the drive is empty again even though I have told the it to remove the device. I suspect that the file cache is not being flushed correctly. Is there a way of checking this and forcing it to flush the file cache if this is the problem?

Fedora :: Gnome Package Kit Authorization?

Jun 4, 2010

I'm having issues with the gnome-packagekit not working as a user. It runs fine as root but I don't want to have to login each time to run it.

The gnome-packagekit used to ask for root password but has stopped doing so. Anyone remember or have a fix for this?

The cancel button does not work either, I need to close with the X for the window...

It now gives this error.. Authorization Failed You have failed to provide correct authentication

CentOS 5 :: Allowing Apache To Write To Folder?

Jul 29, 2009

I'm a PHP developer and an app I'm working on right now generates files for users to download. The problem I'm seeing is in order to write to a folder I have to chmod it 777, obviously a bad idea.

I'm thinking the best idea is to change the folder user / group to that of apache, however after over an hour of Googleing I can not find out what user / group apache belongs to.

Thoughts? Is this the best way to go or should I do something else?

I installed CentOS 5.5 32-bit with Gnome and want to use it as a file server. The volume I wish to share is a 1.5TB NTFS partition stored on a USB drive. I installed "ntfsprogs" and "fuse-ntfs-3g" to get NTFS support. However, I only have read access to the volume.

How can I fix this and get Read+Write to the NTFS drive?

Fedora :: Add / Remove Software Authorization Failed?

Mar 11, 2010

Whenever I try and add software through packagekit I get an error telling me that Authorization failed. I would assume that I need to enter my password before the install begins but the utility never asks for it. I am able to start package kit with sudo and it then adds the software but that keeps most of the packages from running as they were added as root.

Fedora Networking :: Copying Authorization Keys?

Dec 12, 2010

Using SSH all the time on my home network. I use ssh-keygen and ssh-copy-id to generate and then copy the key file. On one of my computers I've changed the default ssh port and see no way to copy the key without reverting the configuration to port 22 temporarily. This is not a big deal and would probably take less time than it has taken me to type this message.

Fedora :: Cannot Install Flash (Authorization Failed)

Jun 11, 2011

The short story: I am trying to install Flash, and get this error:

I tried from the terminal, starting with su and authenticating myself, then running the .rpm file, and I get this:

[jason@Jaslinfed temporary_downloads]$ su
[root@Jaslinfed temporary_downloads]# ./adobe-release-i386-1.0-1.noarch.rpm
bash: ./adobe-release-i386-1.0-1.noarch.rpm: Permission denied
[root@Jaslinfed temporary_downloads]#

The long story: I used to use Ubuntu religiously, but with the more recent updates it's become somewhat buggy, and too Microsoft-like for me, so I decided to try a different distro. I heard Fedora was supposed to be really good, so I went ahead and snagged it. I'm relatively familiar with Linux in general, but know nothing about Fedora specifically. So far I've just had a couple of minor issues (my panel crashes and then disappears, for example) but this one is kinda big. If I can't arbitrarily install software on a whim, I might as well be using Windows.

For the record, yum seems to be working just fine; I've already installed several other applications, but for some reason I cannot install Flash. I've tried from both Opera and Firefox, and again, I even tried straight from the command line as root, but still no luck.

In case it helps: Linux Jaslinfed #1 SMP Fri May 27 06:02:17 UTC 2011 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

Ubuntu Servers :: SSH Setup - Login With Key Authorization

Apr 5, 2010

I just got unbuntu server edition installed on my server along with openssh-server. Now I am trying to set ssh so I can log in with a key authentication. I am using this guide to do it through putty on my windows machine. [URL]. After I installed ssh I logged in correctly. I then proceed to generate a key in putty. Now my problem starts when i try and put that key onto my server.

The tutorial says to type in
mkdir .ssh

My server says it cannot make that directive because it is already created. So I proceed to the next line. I believe this code sets permissions?
chmod 700 ~/.shh
Nothing happens just goes to a new line

Then I did this
cd .ssh
nano -w authorization_key
then I copied and pasted the key I got from putty gen into this file pressed ctrl o and then ctrl x

When I try logging into my server using the key auth it simply asks for my login, once it is input it says authorization invalid then ask for my password.

Ubuntu :: Restoring Partition Mount Authorization?

Jul 27, 2010

Normally when you have a partition that isn't mounted, when you try to mount it, it asks you for the root password.

I have two partitions. One that I wanted mounted at boot, one that I wanted you to have to know the root password to mount. In the process of trying to setup that one partition to automount at boot, I accidentally changed something (through Pysdm) that made it so the other partition no longer displays that root password verification screen. Now all it does is give me an error saying I have to be root. How can I restore that screen?

Ubuntu :: How To Write An .img File.

Jan 26, 2011

I have tried for some time to write an .img file to a USB and a SD Card to boot from to my Netbook. The .img file is from Moblin and they suggest that I use Win32 Disk Imager to write the file to my USB. Though it haven't worked for me even if i use the SD Card and other computers.

The easiest for me would be if i could write the .img file on my SD Card and i have search for some tutorials but haven't found a way to write the file.

I've read something about "dd" but don't get the "command", "code" - thingy. If any one know an easy tutorial for it would be great! Or even better would be a tip to another program/utility like the Win32 Disk Imager that works.

I Use a Windows 7. HP Pavilion Elite and a Windows XP. Compaq Mini 110

CentOS 5 Hardware :: Disk Write Performance Sustained (200 MBs)

Oct 27, 2010

I am experiencing disk write performance issues and I cannot find the cause. I have LSI-9211-8i SAS 2 controller (latest firmware), Centos 5.5 latest x86_64 kernel (2.6.18-194.17.4.el5 #1 SMP with latest LSI driver v. 7.00 datet Jul 27) and Seagate Cheetah ST3600057SS drives. These drives have a std write performance (sustained) of > 200MB/s (and read as well); with Fedora core 13 (same machine), issuing a dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdo bs=1024k count=16384 (16 GB direct device write), gets normally to 213 MB/s (repeated retries). On Centos 5.5 I am getting speeds around 110/113 MB/s.
iostat does not show anything specific (just 1.3 % wait, CPU 99.7 idle).
There are 14 drives: tried with several of them, same figures. Reads go around 200 MB/s.

Debian Hardware :: Can't Connect To CUPS Demanding Authorization

I have an HP printer that I can't connect to. For some reason, CUPS is demanding a username and password.I know there's a way to manually edit the cupsd file, but I'm not sure what I'm looking for in it to shut off the dialog, so I can just go in and add a printer. Anybody else had this problem? I tried using a text browser, and ran into the same problem.

Ubuntu One :: Forces Separate Device For Tomboy Authorization

Jul 29, 2010

Before I submit a bug, I wanted to see if anyone can tell me why this happens. When I first start using UO, it requested that I add my computer to my UO account. I entered the name of my machine, ie. "desktop-name". Once I did that, the music store worked properly, and I was able to use the Evolution Contacts sync and regular files in the ~/UbuntuOne folder. These all showed up in my web interface.

Now, when I set up Tomboy to sync with UO (Tomboy Web), it sends me to the Confirm Computer Access page again, asking me to put in my device name again. So I enter again "desktop-name" and it logs in and Tomboy syncs. The problem is that two devices now show up under Machines, and also under System > Preferences > UbuntuOne > Devices. I've tried deleting both devices, and starting from scratch as described here but it always does the same thing.

Is there a reason I must have two devices listed when I'm on the same system? Has anyone else noticed this? FWIW, each confirmation request lists a different token, it just seems that once I have authorized my system, that all the sync connections should auth under the same credentials.
