Debian :: No User Can Get Access To System Except Root

Jun 18, 2010

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.

General :: Give Total Access To The System To A User Other Than Root?

Mar 9, 2011

How can you give total access to the system to a user other than root?

* Make the user a member of the root group.
* Change the UID of the user to 0.
* Add the user to the /etc/sudoers file.

I think none of these are correct answers.

Debian :: Root / Super User Access On KDE Version

Mar 16, 2009

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).

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

yeri@gplugD ~ $ cat /etc/debian_version
6.0.1

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
***Request timed out

daemon.log:

OpenSUSE Network :: Root User Has Access To Remote Folders/files Of Any User?

Jan 21, 2010

Prelude: OpenSUSE 11.2 (2.6.31.8-0.1-desktop), installed Novell client 2.0 SP2 (novell-client-2.0-sp2-sle11-i586.iso).

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 LAMP server running. Currently there are not vhosts, just the basic single site apache2 running a web app. I want to set up ftp access to the www root, but my attempts have failed. When I try to ftp using the user I created, I get dumped in the users home directory. I can also browse the entire file system. What I can't do is upload content to the www root. I get permission errors. How can I set ftp up to allow a user to access the www root only?

Debian :: Root Access And Desktop Disabled \ Couldn't Open The Root Terminal?

Feb 19, 2011

I was using the latest stable release of Debian, dual-booted alongside Windows Vista, with the GNOME desktop, installed via netinst, trying to build and install a library that I knew and trusted, when suddenly I couldn't open the Root Terminal. I clicked the link (in Applications->Accessories (I think, whatever the top one is)->Root Terminal), and in the taskbar I saw an item that said "Starting Root Terminal". A few seconds later, that went away, but the terminal still wasn't open. I tried the regular user terminal, to see the same thing happen. Unsure of what was happening, I tried restarting my computer, since that's always the first step you should take in computer problems.

When I restarted, GNOME wouldn't start. The screen would flash a bit for a few seconds, then a dialog box would appear over a background of static that said "The greeter application is crashing. Attempting another one...".t would then go back to the DOS-style kernel, wait a second, and then the same thing would happen. After several of that, I would get a blue screen which said something to the effect of "It has been detected that the desktop environment has crashed six times in the past 30 seconds.

Waiting two minutes before trying again." When it did that, I tried logging in as root to assess the problem. I gave it the correct password, but it said that it was an incorrect login. After several tries (to ensure I didn't mistype the password), I logged in as myself. Same problem. I tried the su command, with the correct password, and it said it couldn't authorise it.

After a lengthy conversation with a friend of mine who was very good with computers, he basically summarised that he had no clue, but that his best guess would be a virus. Upon running the Linux installer, I found the Repair option. Not being particularly familiar with Linux, I used it simply to backup my important files onto a flash drive. I then tried running the Install option, in an attempt to simply write over my existing Linux and make it new again. The installer, however, consistently froze up when trying to start the partitioner, on the "Checking disks..." stage. I figured it was a problem with my partition. In my naivete, I simply used the Windows tools to clear that partition... It destroyed GRUB too, so I couldn't run any OS. I figured my computer was pretty well screwed, and at that point just decided to bring it into the shop and have them completely wipe it.

my computer was backed up onto an external hard driven I brought it back, I reinstalled Windows. Upon restart, it said that it was still looking for GRUB, which made no sense to me. After messing around with it a bit, I decided to just reinstall Linux too. To my lack of surprise, that fixed the problem. Both OS' now ran just fine. The first thing I did on Debian was to install the Clam Anti-Virus, which I understood to be one of the best Linux anti-viruses. However, within about 10 hours, got the same problem as originally. I wasn't doing any of the same things, and between the lack of consistency in activities and the fact that I had an anti-virus running,figured it wasn't a virus. Not knowing what to do, I just left it and have been using Windows since.

OpenSUSE :: Access Root Components With User Password?

Jul 20, 2011

So I'm attempting to get my system to not require the root password while still requiring some form of authentication. My current issue is getting yast2 and its components to ask for the user's password and not the root's.

Is there a way to have these tools ask for user's password instead of root's?

Networking :: How To Create SSH User Without Access To Root Directory

Aug 7, 2009

I need to create an SSH user that can only access the directory I would specify for them. For example, I've been able to execute the following:
useradd -d /home/me/directory_for_this_user someuser

So when someuser logs in they get into this directory. Problem is that once they log in they can simply execute:
cd /
and navigate through all other directories which is a security risk.

How I could limit someuser's access to only /home/me/directory_for_this_user and its subdirectories and nowhere else in the system?

Software :: Cannot Access MySQL Server Other Than User=root?

I've tried every manual there is for creating new MySQL users ... but without success.
I keep getting

Code:
ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user 'test'@'localhost' (using password: YES) even though I just created it with all privileges ... WITH a password that I DO remember .

Fortunately I still have access via the MySQL root user (so I try not to disturb that user, because I have had computers with THAT account not accessible as well - even WITH resetting the password via skip-grant-tables).

General :: How To Give User Same Access Level As Root - Fedora 14 - KDE

Apr 9, 2011

First, I am new to linux I just finished installing Fedora 14 on a different PC which I will be using solely to explore Linux. However the first annoying problem I encountered was that I can't do a lot of things without Linux asking me for the root password. This has become really annoying, I want to stop fedora from asking for root authentication every time I want to explore something here and there.

Among the work-arounds that I've tried and didn't quite work for me are:
1. login as root on the kdm - I can login as root but because I am also encouraging my sister to explore fedora 14 she needs the same access as root too. We have our own preferences so we both need individual accounts that have same access level as root.

2. change userid to 0 (same as root) and modify groups to be exactly the same as root's groups - very bad solution, what it did was make my user a sort of "alias" for the root. It basically uses the same /root/ folder, same settings and all that stuff. Again, my sister and I need separate accounts for a more personal feel.

3. use terminal and go sudo, sudoers, etc - very bad idea, I want to explore using the kde gui. And again I want to eliminate the inconvenience of having to type things over and over again. I'd rather type the password over and over again than having to use terminal and sudo everything.

4. beesu, gksu - anyone knows how to make linux automatically wrap everything with beesu/gksu?

since we are just exploring, we are willing to trade the systems, integrity and security for the convenience of having freedom to explore everything in it. I don't care, it could blow up the pc for all I care (it's old and for experiment anyway).

This exploring linux of ours is a make or break for us to using linux. If there is no solution to this problem, we'll probably scrap the whole "migrate to linux" idea.

I thinking of making Linux recognize our user id the same way it recognizes uid 0 but I have no idea how to do this.
