Debian :: Modify To Automatically Grant Root Privileges And Execute Commands When Starts?

Aug 22, 2010

I'm connected to the internet using a wireless router. Each time I boot, I have to grant root privileges and type in a shell: iwconfig wlan0 essid linksys key dhclient wlan0 Isn't there a file(or location) that I can modify to automatically grant root privileges and execute these commands when debian starts? Something like autoexec.bat in windows.

Something else I'd like to mention is when I execute iwconfig.... for the first time, I get this incomplete result:

IEEE 802.11bg ESSID:"linksys"
Mode:Managed Access Point: Not-Associated Tx-Power=27 dBm
Retry long limit:7 RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off
Encryption key***********
Power Management:off

Ubuntu :: Way To Grant 'root' Privileges To User Account?

Jan 2, 2010

Is there a way to grant 'root' privileges to my user account? My account name ... I'll call it 'masterskop' as it is my forum name here, but not on my computer.Would it look like this in the sudoers' file?My purpose is to get access to all the folders and files in the 'File System'. The root and lost+found folders have 'Xs' on them...No access! And for example, under properties of the 'var' folder it states that 'you are not the owner, so you cannot change these permissions.' How can I get access to all of it everytime I login as the main user of my computer? I do not have anyone else using this computer.I did edit this file and used my real user name ... logged out and logged back in and still I do not have access/edit these folders and files.

OpenSUSE Network :: Regular User And Http. Grant Correct Privileges?

Jul 30, 2010

I have a normal user (sites:users) and the usual http user (wwwrun:www).I'm hosting several sites and I want to be able to upload stuff via ftp, so I'm using the "sites" home (/home/sites) to keep the sites I'm hosting. Giving read permissions to all inside /home/sites makes it accessible and readable to the wwwrun user. Problems come when I need to upload something. The easy way is to give 777 permissions to the folder that's going to receive the file, but I don't feel comfortable at all with that.

What do you recommend? Is there any group configuration that could help me (like adding "sites" to the "www" group)? Or any other configuration at all that might be according the the best practices?

Debian :: X No Longer Starts Automatically?

Apr 9, 2011

It was running squeeze before it became stable. X was running fine and loading automatically on booting. Then I did not use it for some time. Then I ran apt-get updates and upgrades after squeeze became stable. A few packages were kept back. So I did aptitude dist-upgradeIt installed some things and maybe removed some things. After that it will boot only toconsole. When I do startx on the command line, X session starts and everything seems normal. But it will not boot to the GUI like before. I also checked in the Synaptic and saw xorg and xserver-xorg still installed

Debian :: How To Sign In Or Install For Root Privileges

Feb 28, 2015

I used Zorin, Ubuntu, and Kubuntu. Even though Kubuntu was my favorite because of the KDE platform, it still didn't have what I was looking for. With Debian, the KDE platform works great, it uses KDM instead of LightDM, (you can do more with that), and the choices of software for setting it up as a server is great. The problem I having right now is with the root privileges. With the other Debian based systems I used, root privileges was not a problem. When I signed in, it was with my user name and my root password.

Every time I did updates or installed software, it ask me for authentication which is my root password. And if I had to use su or sudo commands in the terminal it ask for my password. I had no problem with that. I'm just as big with security as any Unix based system users. And Linux has that. That's one of the big reasons I left Microsoft Windows for Linux. There was times when I had to have full root privileges for just a short time, and my favorite command was sudo nautilus. This was perfect.

For example, sometimes I had to get in to the opt folder for a brief moment to past a web page in it. Opt is a root folder. It can be opened with out a root privilege, but you just can't past files to it. Sudo nautilus was perfect for this because it is a temporary root privilege. Close the terminal and the root privilege session ends. This is great. You don't want root privileges all the time you're log in. That can be dangerous because it's a high security risk.

With Debian, I have not been able to get any root privileges. And without root privileges, I can't load much needed software, can't access my second hard drive, matter of fact, the second hard drive doesn't even show up. I can't really do much of anything. Is there something I can do when I am installing Debian to fix this or how do I get the root privileges I need?

Fedora Security :: Create An SELinux Policy To Automatically Grant Apps Execstack While They Use Glxinfo

Nov 20, 2009

I just upgraded from 11 to 12 and then installed the Nvidia proprietary drivers from RPMFusion. Initially glxinfo wouldn't work because SELinux was stopping it from using an executable stack. Since the Nvidia drivers are proprietary and a fix may not be provided, I allowed this access to glxinfo with chcon -t execmem_exec_t '/usr/bin/glxinfo'

However it looks like every program using glx-utils also needs these permissions - so far I allowed Xorg, compiz and the Firefox video plugin to execstack. Can anyone suggest a fix for this - preferably one that avoids execstack for all those apps since its a security risk. If not how do I create an SELinux policy to automatically grant apps execstack while they use glxinfo or other nVidia libraries but not at other times.

Debian Multimedia :: Fluxbox Only Starts From Root?

Apr 29, 2010

I just installed Lenny base and added Fluxbox as wm. I can start Fluxbox from root with "startx" command but only get a light blue screen that is frozen if I try to start Fluxbox from the command line user ID using "startx." I think that it might be an ownership problem but I'm not sure what files I should change the owrnship of, if any. Some of the in installation of fluxbox was done from the root directory instead of from the user directory using the sudo command.

Debian :: Running Admin Commands As Non-root

Apr 4, 2016

I use two separate systems both running Debian 8. On one (my main) I can't do some commands including ping, shutdown and reboot without running them as root user, however on my other system I can ping and reboot as a non-privileged user. The permissions on both systems are the same for /bin/ping and /sbin/systemctl (reboot). I thought at first it was something to do with what groups my main was in, but that doesn't seem to be the gase.

I know I can fix it by setting setuid for both, but my question is why is it different on both machines? Is there a global setting controlling this in /etc or perhaps an icmp setting?

Fedora :: How To Execute Commands On Startup

Aug 11, 2011

how to execute commands on startup. I've added lines to /etc/rc.d/rc.local, /etc/rc.local, I've put scripts (with extension .sh) into /etc/init.d/ and I've set the executable permission thing on all of them with chmod -x. I *still* can't get anything at all to execute on startup. The truth is, I'm trying to enable multitouch and button tapping automatically when I startup Fedora. I have the commands

[code]...

Which I want to execute whenever I start Fedora (it's a bit tedious to write them every time, or even to have to execute a script myself whenever I start my computer). Furthermore, if I can figure this out, then I can do all sorts of things. Does anyone have a clear, surefire way in which I can do this? I'm not good with using Linux at all
