Debian Configuration :: Non Root User Unable To Access Network
Mar 28, 2011
I upgraded a Guruplug Display machine running Lenny to Squeeze. It's running Linux on a MicroSD device, running an ARM-cpu.
# uname -a
Linux gplugD 2.6.29 #1 Wed Feb 16 17:59:04 IST 2011 armv5tejl GNU/Linux
yeri@gplugD ~ $ cat /etc/debian_version
However, after rebooting, every non root user was unable to access anything related to the net.This means, DHCP failed to auto start, ntp is giving errors, etc
# ntpq -p
localhost: timed out, nothing received

I just installed Debian and am getting a problem where I can't open the list of network connections. I can use the network manager applet to connect to wireless networks, but I cannot access the network connections list from there either (right click "edit connections)
I'm not incredibly knowledgeable with Linux, but I tried a few simple things I could think of like reinstalling the packages, or restarting the interfaces. (ifdown/up wlan0)
It's strange, because when I click "network connections," I see it show up for a second on the bottom panel, I get some rotating mouse icon while I wait a few seconds and then if goes away. Is there some kind of logfile that could help me identify the problem?
Using Debian 6 on eeePC1000HEB with Ath9k (i think) wireless card. Net Interface: wlan0
I found that if any usual user is logged into a NDS-tree, then _local_ root has full access to user's network shares, including the user's home directory located on remote Netware-server. Is it by design or have I missed something? Nevertheless in windows local admin has no access to network resources mounted of any other user. If you runas shell (as admin) then admin in principle can't "see" network shares which were mounted (connected) by other users - they are accessible ("visible") per session.
I have a system running with few users and servers (apache/mysql/postfix). After extracting one tar archive in '/home' none of my users are being able to access their home directory. Even other system users (like www-data/mysql) are also not being able to access any directory. Only root can access the system. I have checked file permissions, many files/directories are set to 777 rest are 755.
on my netbook I've tried to make possible for my user to shutdown without needing a password. battery could run low when I'm not in front of it. Editing sudoers has allowed my user to shutdown the system, but Gnome still prompts me for the root password whenever root is logged in too. That's usually the case, because to avoid entering the root password multiple times whenever I need elevated privileges and not wanting to cache the root password, I keep a Root Terminal always open.
After a week of working with Debian, I decided to install the KDE3 version straight from an NetInstall CD. This fixed some issues for me as well as made networking and folder sharring a snap! But now its time to add all the extra packages I need.
Here's the problem: Using any kind of Package Manager yields the same results: E: Could not get lock /var/lib/dpkg/lock - open (11 Resource temporarily unavailable) E: Unable to lock the administration directory (var/lib/dpkg/), in another process using it? RESULT=100
I've tried apt-get from root command line and the KPackage Manager that comes with KDE3 with same results. I have only one user that was created during Debian install. I'm having some other problems, from what I've seen on the net, they all seem to point to not having proper Super User access (I'm guessing here). What could cause this error? AND/OR How do I make sure I have top level access to the configure the system? (I tried logging in as "root", but the login errored out saying that this was not allowed).
I'm using Debian Jessie Cinnamon right now. I've got 1 user account on my machine--fred--as well as root, of course. "fred" is an administrator, and many times that is enough for root priviledges, for example, I can install packages via apt or dpkg. However, I cannot access "Users and Groups", or install packages via GDebi, with my password. For that, I have to have the root password.
I know that it is possible to let the admin account handle everything and not even need root--for example, Mint and (I believe) Ubuntu do it this way. I don't know how, though.
Code: Select allgroups fred fred : fred cdrom floppy sudo audio dip video plugdev netdev lpadmin scanner bluetooth
I did disable the root account by Code: Select allsudo passwd -l root to see if it would make any change. Nothing different happened except that I now can't use GDebi or access "Users and Groups" since the root account and therefore password is inactivated. Not a big deal to get it back, though.
I have lost my password for my root and for my user account.
Code: Select alluser@debian:~$ su Password: su: Authentication failure user@debian:~$ su Password: su: Authentication failure user@debian:~$ su
I have just installed a gust debian 8 on debian 8 host in virtualbox, and when i wonted too login as su/root on the host there where no login possible, is there a way to regain the root password for the host?
I have a very strange problem.ometimes, yes sometimes not all the time, I get a Destination Host Unreachable when I ping a computer on my network. If I switch to root using su I can ping that same computer. Here is a screen shot:
joseph@laptop:~$ ping 192.168.1.14 PING 192.168.1.14 (192.168.1.14) 56(84) bytes of data. From 192.168.1.9 icmp_seq=2 Destination Host Unreachable
It looks like my web/ftp server has been hacked but I'm not sure how. I logged in tonight and found I had new mail. I read it and found some e-mails that had failed to send because I don't have mail setup (luckily). The e-mails were trying to send my user name and password to the e-mail address email@example.comI've no idea where to start, I use SSH, FTP now and then and it hosts a Wordpress site. The FTP users do not have access via SSH, only my user ID. However, the e-mails also contained another user ID that only has FTP access to the server.I've looked through the logs for rkhunter but it doesn't look like it found anything.
This is a perennial problem with Linux. I am just not comfortable moving a lot of casual files around as root. How can I have user access to a USB stick? I've done my Google searches and tried several methods, some of which work temporarily but not permanently. At the moment, I have this line in my /etc/fstab: /dev/sdd /media/usb_flash ntfs noauto,users,rw,umask=0 0 0 As with other methods, this worked last week but not now.
All I want to do is insert a USB stick, transfer some files and remove the stick. I want to do this as a user. This should be simple. What is the trick?
I am not sure if this is the correct forum to post this as I have usually been able to find the answers from other peoples threads.The error I receive is below.(changed "at" as can't post links)"#1045 - Access denied for user 'root' at 'localhost' (using password: NO)" Not entirely sure what has happened here. I have had this server running for a long time and today it seems to have spat it's dummy out!I have checked the config.inc.php and the controluser and controlpass are entered correctly so the error saying a password is not being usPHP Code:Thisis needed for cookie based authentication to encrypt password incookie
I am using debian squeeze server with asterisk 1.6 installed and configured.my problem is non root users need to access the server using ssh and restart asterisk server after making changes in asterisk configuration files.As of now i am giving root username/password for this process (i know it is not at all a good idea) .now how can i create a username and configure it which can only access and modify asterisk configuration files and restart asterisk server without any other privileges.
2 of us have been googling all morning trying to find out how we can restrict ftp logins to their own home directories only but nothing we've found so far has worked. We've tweaked sshd_config so that they default to their home directory but they are able to navigate up/across/down to everything. This is a "straight-out-of-the-box" debian 5.0.5 Netinst. Just a basic system with Apache/MySql/PHP/SSH and no desktop.
I've installed Debian on a Sun Ultra 450 Enterprise system using the net install version, so I know that my network is working correctly. However, now that Debian is installed and I bring up Gnome, I have no network access. I've set eth0 to DHCP, and have pointed it to my DNS server, but it never gets any information from the DNS server.
I've looked through /etc/network/interfaces, which looks like this: # This file describes the network interfaces available on your system and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5). # The loopback network interface auto lo iface lo inet loopback # The primary network interface allow-hotplug eth0 #NetworkManager#iface eth0 inet dhcp /etc/resolv.conf contains: nameserver 192.168.0.1 which is correct.
I've run /etc/init.d/networking stop /etc/init.d/networking start
So far, nothing works. Why would the Debian network install disk work, but not be smart enough to set my network correctly from the start once I'm actually running Linux? Also, how do I get the network running in Gnome?
After fossicking around I can not find anything around that I can invoke in a terminal to configure settings in network-manager. The applet(?) on the task bar doesn't ask for a login, so options are grey/grayed out. The "program" in the applications menu is similarly grey/grayed out.
If it was a once off, then I suspect that it would be simple as login as root to start X, but I have a series of config files to edited each time of their initial use. also, there is the ongoing problem of vpn target switching.
woops; wheezy with xfce4 and everything is uptodate.
Ive been trying to setup bonding on my debian lenny box for about a week now with still no luck.i thinks its ver 2.6.26 or summing like that.The nics are bonded and it has all the network details but for some reason I cannot ping anything on the network and I cannot ping the lenny box.
Having installed Debian 7 on an old machine from a Liinux Format Magazine DVD I was unable to log in as a specific user. I can login as root and use useradd etc but when I logout of root I still cannot login as a user and nor will the machine accept my root password. I have to shutdown and reboot to get back into root. I'm using O'Reilly's Linux Pocket Guide from 2004 for the commands. Could it be that things have changed?
When I start an upgrade or dist-upgrade from single-user mode, and walk away for a long time, I will have found that some packages insist on prompting for answers to questions midway through. That requires me to physically check the console periodically, and that becomes less practical for long upgrades.Is there a way for me to somehow remote into that console and answer any prompts that would popup? By "way" I mean not involving KVM switches or other hardware other than the LAN setup I have now (i.e., I am able to ssh into the machine being updated from another machine, but not when the machine is in single-user mode).
BTW, the reason I am using single-user mode is that, in the past, I have had problems with upgrading packages like GNOME when I am logged into the GNOME Desktop.
I recently installed two PC with debian lenny (kernel 2.6.26). One is called serveur-debian1 and the second one serveur-debian2. I have installed gnome,samba, mysql5, apache2, php5, and Virtualbox,bridge-tools on them. On serveur-debian2, i installed an other virtual debian lenny with apache2,mysql5,php5,nagios and centreon on it to view my network. I remember having installed a soft to access nntp on serveur-debian2 in order to test nagios.
Since a few days, i have problem to access to my servers. rom my windows 7 client, i try to ping serveur-debian1. Response is OK but not for all resquets Always from the same computer, i try to ping serveur-debian2. Response is OK but not for all again.
When i launch a ping on serveur-debian1 and serveur debian2 at the same time i have:
ping 1 to 10: serveur-debian1: response OK serveur-debian2: no response ping 11to 14: serveur-debian1: no response serveur-debian2: response OK ping 15 to 25: serveur-debian1: respone OK serveur-debian2: @ip serveur-debian1 network unreachable (there's no error, it shows me the ip of serveur-debian1)
If i switch on the debian virtual server on the serveur-debian2, and i ping it at the same time, the response is OK for all resquests. The problem is very strange. I can't have a correct connection and when i launch a request from a software which access the mysql server, the requests failed ...
I've been using wicd (126.96.36.199 was the latest version on my desktop computer, maybe it got updated) without any problems for a long time. This morning after switching the thing on to read the morning news with a nice hot cup of coffee I got a number of funny Gui system messages: Wicd needs to access your computer's network cards. Password
I have installed apache php and mysql on my pc during debian installation... some of my friends complain they cannot access my webserver from their home and it's available only within my local network... Please help regarding this...
Take a physical user FRED. FRED is a linux user ( known by linux on his laptop ) FRED is a Samba user ( Known by samba on the samba pdc server ) When he logs locally (with username/password) on its standalone laptop (with no network), he is known as FRED:user. He access his data in /home/FRED/. When he logs through samba (with username/password) on the domain MY_DOM, he is known as MY_DOMFRED:MY_DOMdomain user. He access his data in /home/MY_DOM/FRED/. ) Is it possible that the human FRED has only one repository and have full access to its repository regardless of how it was connected. If yes, how to do it
2) If not, Is it possible that the human FRED has full access to /home/FRED/.............. and /home/MY_DOM/FRED/.
1. Log in as the root user. 2. I have created a file with name "reminder" in /root directory. 3. Create a /etc/cron.daily directory. Add a file called "taxrem", which reads a text file from home directory, so write a command in the "taxrem" : "cat ~/reminder" 4. Add command to /etc/crontab file. Based on the conditions I want, such as : 5 13 * * * root run-parts /etc/cron.daily
There is no entry in the cron.deny file. Still I have not get any response on that scheduled time.
i want to install a software in my linux machine staying in another user that i have created .It is asking for root access for some command to be execute during installation process.when I am trying to execute "sudo -s" its showing " is not in the sudoers file. This incident will be reported.".what next will i do.I am in my ubuntu machine.
