Debian :: Configuration Files Randomly Become Unwritable

Aug 15, 2011

Occasionally, with no warning and no cause that I've been able to see, everything that I try to open will produce an error message saying that an associated configuration file For example, I try to open dolphin, and I get a message saying: 'Configuration file "/home/<user>/.kde/share/config/dolphinrc" not writable. Please contact your system administrator.' I get similar ones for konsole, open office, and everything else I try to open, except firefox, which I installed by hand. Konsole still works after this error, but dolphin and open office do not. This never happens directly after startup (it usually happens about an hour after), and always happens to everything - I never get this message for just one program, while everything else works fine. I've tried deleting /home/<user>/.kde/ to 'reset' kde, but that hasn't helped. In case it helps, I'm running Squeeze (amd64) with kde 4.4.5.

Debian Configuration :: Ssh Randomly Stopped Working On Server?

Mar 15, 2010

I'm in somewhat of a sticky situation. ssh has just randomly stopped working on my server after a power failure. Everything else that doesn't rely on ssh is still working fine though. It can still receive mail and everything, just no ssh.Background on the server, running debian etch on a PPC machine.ssh is (supposed to be) running on port 2000. Even if I am physically logged into the machine I can't log in with ssh -p 2000 user@127.0.0.1.
I can ssh to and from any other machine on my network (the server can even ssh into another machine). So it isn't my network causing issues.It seems like the port 2000 is completely closed, if nmap the server's IP address I get PORT    STATE SERVICE

25/tcp  open  smtp
80/tcp  open  http
110/tcp open  pop3

General :: Samba Folders Unwritable?

May 16, 2011

I just recently built a new linux server Redhat Enterprise Linux 6 and installed Samba version 3.5.4-68.el6.I copied a configuration file from an old Linux Server (Redhat Enterprise Linux 3.0AS) with a properly running Samba version 3.07131 . To make sure that everything will be ok, I created the same group and added the users on that group and created the same directories with the file name and attributes as that of the old server. Evrything seems fine as I can see all the shared folders on the windows XP and windows 7 Machines until I tried to write something on those folder. I keep getting the message that the action is denied and I need permission to perform that action. I do not know what to do next, hence this post.Below is the copy of my configuration file.

# This is the main Samba configuration file. You should read the
# smb.conf(5) manual page in order to understand the options listed
# here. Samba has a huge number of configurable options (perhaps too

Debian Configuration :: Streaming From Debian-hosted Files?

Nov 16, 2010

I have a RAID5 array created with mdadm from four 1.5 TB WD15EADS formatted XFS and shared with samba. I recently upgraded it (fresh install to a SSD) from an old -stable 2.6.18-6 to a fresh -lenny 2.6.26-2, and since the upgrade, I've noticed I can't stream high bandwidth video off of the array over samba anymore. The video stutters like it's out of bandwidthI've tried using mpc-hc64 in Windows 7 and my newly arrived Boxee Box.

Everything is wired gigabit ethernet (Boxee Box isn't, but the other two and the switch all three run through are), and I can copy the file at 30-35 MB/s to my desktop, which is significantly more bandwidth than streaming a video consumes. Looking at CPU usage on my desktop and the debian file server, there is plenty of headroom on both. Lower bandwidth files play perfectly fine, either SD or smaller HD.

Since I installed to a new boot drive, all the other hardware is the same, and the array of data is independent of the OS installation, I can boot off the old system, and I can verify that it indeed does not have the streaming problem. Everything plays perfectly smoothly like you'd expect. It even appears to copy slightly faster (35-40 MB/s versus 30-35 MB/s).Is there something in the configuration of the system or samba that I can change?

Debian :: Backing Up Configuration Files Using BAK

Mar 30, 2014

Before I used to make a copy of configuration file and give the end of the file name as 'something.conf.bkp' . Later realized it was a mistake. The correct wording should end in .bak and not bkp .

As per (See apt.conf(5) manpage, section DIRECTORIES, last paragraph.)

The Ignore-Files-Silently list can be used to specify which files APT should silently ignore while parsing the files in the fragment directories. Per default a file which end with .disabled, ~, .bak or .dpkg-[a-z]+ is silently ignored. As seen in the last default value these patterns can use regular expression syntax.

Debian Configuration :: Opening Files Over LAN

Jun 23, 2014

I just moved from Ubuntu to Debian, managed to get the WiFi printer working, installed flash player etc. Just seemed to have trouble opening files over the LAN, is there a firewall setting I need to set. Files work fine if i copy them to the desktop and open them from there but not over the LAN. I have looked on the web with no luck.

Debian Configuration :: Replacement For HAL/FDI Files?

Jan 31, 2010

I run a Squeeze system and have recently updated various packages. As far as I can tell one of the changes has deprecated HAL FDI files (used for, among other things, configuring various input devices). I am hence wondering how one should go about configuring such devices --- without having to resort to an xorg.conf file.The two devices in question, an TouchPad and TrackPoint can both be configured via XInput when I log-in, however, it is somewhat tedious. Writing a log-on script to do this also seems rather hacky.So my question is: what is the most elegant way of configuring XInput devices?

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Sound Card Randomly Drops From Configuration?

Mar 25, 2011

Since I started to use Suse 11.3, I've been having problems with my sound card. It starts normally and I can use it without further problems, until it randomly stops working. I don't know what causes it to stop working, it just does. Then, if I go to YaST>Hardware>Sound (it shows I have a 82801G (ICH7 Family) High Definition Audio Controller), press edit then reset, it works again!

I've been doing this for like 4 months, but I'm growing tired of doing it and not being able to just sit back and enjoy music on the amarok. I don't know what should I report, so that's why I only say the sound card identification.

Debian Configuration :: Using Spamc With Multiple Files?

Jul 27, 2011

I have several mails which I want to scan by using spamc and thats the problem.

It works when I use just one mail message as a parameter of spamc. E.g. spamc -c < 17383. BUT when I want to pass several messages on spamc e.g. spamc -c < 17383. 18974.(spamc scan just the first message) OR when I use a whole directory e.g. spamc < ./test/* it doesnt work. (output: -bash: ./test/*: ambiguous redirect)

how to pass multiple files in command line on spamc? I know - I can create a script, but I would be glad if it worked for testing in CLI (command above).

Debian Configuration :: Rsync - Not Creating Files On Host

Aug 2, 2015

Having an issue with rsync

I launch the following

Code: Select allrsync -avz --remove-source-files --log-file=/home/pi/rsync.log --temp-dir
=/data/temp --partial --progress -e "ssh" 192.168.1.100://data/ext/downloads/File.ext /data/

Basically I download to main PC and rsync to my pi as the pi has a fraction of the speed for some reason when downloading form a source outside of my network.

The first few files will sync fine. Then I start getting errors like this

Code: Select allrsync: rename "/data/temp/.File.ext.y1716M" -> "File.ext": No such file or directory
(2)

The directory on the host has user and group ownership as pi. Rsync has been setup to login without a password.

Debian Configuration :: Renaming Files In /dev//radio0 As /dev/radio

Sep 16, 2010

I have a TV/radio tuner and I installed the gkrellm-radio plugin. The plugin works fine, but, it only works with /dev/radio. I'm not sure if its safe to rename files so I just create a symlink of /dev/radio0 as /dev/radio.

It gets pretty annoying to me to have to create a symlink every time I start up my computer so I can listen to the radio. Is there a way to get linux to permanently name "/dev/radio0" as "/dev/radio"?

Debian Configuration :: Laptop Files Located In /var - Can Change This

Jun 7, 2011

On my Laptop, I installed Debian under the file "/" and the partition on which I have all my files under "/var". While this isn't really a big issue, when I originally installed Debian, I had the intention of having all of my files on a partition that I would auto-mount later so that when I upgrade my system by reinstalling it, I would only have to change the system partition and let everything else stay the same.. I can live without changing my /var if I can only do so by a re-install...

Debian Configuration :: Apache Is Working - Can't Read Php Files

This is what writes when I enter localhost in browser and press Enter.

It works!

This is the default web page for this server.

The requested URL /~david/baby.php was not found on this server.

So , I copied file directly into /var/www folder, entered /localhost/baby.php and get this :

Here are some suggestions: Reload this webpage later. HTTP Error 500 (Internal Server Error): An unexpected condition was encountered while the server was attempting to fulfill the request.

Debian Multimedia :: Remote Desktop Configuration Files

May 14, 2010

If i got gnome i may go to the top-panel: choose system, choose preferences and go to "remote desktop" and make my settings (allow, ask for allow, password, and other stuff). I don't want to be bound to gnome (though i like it, thats not the problem).Which config-files are the ones i am looking for?

I did search the web, but i can't find useful how-to's, explanations, etc.Cause what i find is related to the path i described above (gnome: top-panel, preferences...)Which is the app/tool which pops up and says:"someone wants to access, you want to allow it, yes or no?". The performance of VNC is lousy comopared to NX. Lousy is the friendly version. What might i be doing wrong?i usually do it from a Debian-host to a VirtualBox-guest.I am mainly asking for how-to's/docus and stuff like that. Links. Explanations are welcome too. Of course.

Debian Configuration :: How To Import VPN Config Files With No File Extension

Feb 10, 2016

I've downloaded configuration files for my VPN, Kovurt, and they don't have a .ovpn file extension. Further, when I tried to enter the information manually (using this guide), I saw that the files only include the <ca> tags, and no <cert>, <key> or <tls-auth> tags.

Here is the content of one of the config files, simply named 'Tokyo' with no extension. (adding .ovpn didn't work either):

Code: Select allclient
dev tun
proto udp
remote 50.31.255.86 443
resolv-retry infinite
nobind

[Code] ....

I have an open ticket with Kovurt asking for the other info, but I know already that they don't have much in the way of documentation or support for Linux.

Debian Configuration :: Configuring Ureadahead - No Pack Files In Folder

Debian Configuration :: Apache - Permission Denied On Files Uploaded Ftp?

Apr 12, 2011

I have an apache installation with /var/www/bob as the document root and the only site served up. I have bob as the directory's owner, and he is able to upload his files to that folder via ftp (vsftpd on the server). When a browser tries to access the pages, it simply gets a 403 forbidden. The problem occurs when apache2 tries to access the files bob uploads. The www-data user (Apache daemon) gets permission denied when I try to cat bob's files in the shell, so it's purely a permissions issue. What I can't figure out is how to give the Apache daemon the ability to read bob's files while also making certain it does not have the ability to modify any of them.

Fedora Networking :: Network Connection Intermittent After DHCP Configuration - Stops Working Randomly

Jul 17, 2009

I'm having a bizarre problem where my network connection stops working randomly. At first I thought it was a DNS issue since Firefox simply chilled out on "Looking up [hostname]" until it timed out, but after further investigation (pinging IP's, "host" and "dig" being unable to reach servers) it became apparent that I couldn't even access the DNS servers i.e. the Wicked Connection of the East was most sincerely dead.

There are two strange things about this: one, there are no errors except "timeout". The network manager is happy, Firefox is happy until the lookup fails... Two, the failures only start *after* DHCP configuration. DHCP configuration never has any trouble sending or receiving packets. I'm going to try static IP and whatnot to see if that helps, more information later.

Ubuntu :: Rename Files In A Directory Randomly?

Jun 19, 2010

I want to rename all files in a directory to "random" names(the point is that the name does not exist, it can be anything). In my case is it *.wav file i want to rename, i basically want to burn cd's to my pc with cdparanoia, then rename them and put them in a directory with other songs i have which also have been given random names. (i'm creating a big music directory where the songs have no names)And i will eventually make a script to make things easier, but for some reason i can't think out a way to rename the files randomly, and i guess "$RANDOM" is a good variable to use but.. how?EDIT: And while i'm at it, is there any way to use the "play" command in the terminal, by "sorting" music files in a directory randomly, and then play them, so it will not be played the same order again?
