Fedora :: ABRT (and SMOLT) And Sensitive Data?

Jun 18, 2011

Question about the bug reporting system that I think is called ABRT Struggling with F15 and want to file a bug report, but the backtrace thingy says I should remove sensitive data first. Obviously a good idea, but the report is full of what to a non-programmer looks like gibberish - things like what I guess are hexadecimal numbers or memory addresses, none of which I understand. Can any of that incomprehensible stuff contain sensitive data, like encryption keys or anything someone would need to crack a machine? If I remove all of that then the bug report will be pretty sparse.

(Same question applies to SMOLT - machine profie report - as well) Or is "sensitive" just about the human readable data in the reports?

Ubuntu :: How To Wipe Sensitive Data

Jun 12, 2011

I accidentally made a mistake of deleting the data I was suppose to shred. I cut and pasted sensitive documents from my external hard drive into my laptop. I want to shred those documents from my external hard drive but since I already did a cut/paste command those files are no longer accessible from my external hard drive. Is there a way I can fix this?

Ubuntu :: Does Home Directory Dot Folders Contain Sensitive Data

Feb 3, 2011

I recently used D�j� Dup for the first time. I chose to backup my home folder and most dot folders (do most of you backup all your home dir dot folders?). Even though D�j� Dup uses gpg, is there any sensitive data stored in dot folders within my home directory?

BTW, I did an incremental backup up to an older D�j� Dup backup folder on my NTSF external HDD and got an error. Is this because it is NTFS? I then did an incremental backup to a backup folder on my PC (ext4) and got no error. In the picture attached, would that setting mean the backup will continue to grow to a huge size? Would it be better to keep backups for a week?

Ubuntu Security :: Transferring Sensitive Data Quickly And Securely?

Jun 27, 2011

My company needs to send sensitive data across to another company, 800gb of .dpx. The way I have thought of is:
E-Sata/1TB WD black.
True-encrypted/ hw accelerated aes (3x machines being built with 2600k)
Sha1sum on each file.

The main goal is to make sure that
1. The files that were transferred off the server onto the drive, are exactly the same.
2. Secure.
3. Fast.

Fedora :: When ABRT Has A Bug / Does It Turn Itself In?

Dec 7, 2010

So last night suddenly my computer started running really slow. Like it would take a couple of minutes for a window to open. I tried to start System Monitor to see what was going on, but couldn't get it to launch. At first I thought something had grabbed the CPU, but eventually I discovered that something was writing a massive amount to the hard disk. The intensive disk activity continued for about 20 minutes as I watched nervously. Just as the disk activity suddenly stopped ABRT popped up a message that disappeared to fast to read fully, but it said something about a file that was too large.

This morning I discovered that about 9 GB of my hard disk had been used up. Using "find -size +1G" I found an 8.6 GB file in /var/spool/abrt /ccpp-1291706342-2244/ called "coredump."I don't know what a coredump is or how to look inside the file to see what might have caused its creation. But I do know that ABRT has not said a word about the incident.

Fedora :: F12 - How To Clear ABRT Cache

Fedora :: F12 ABRT And Bugzilla Can't Login?

Sep 17, 2010

First of all, I was unsure whether this should go in General Support or in Installation. The problem is occurring on my first boot of a freshly installed F12 system, but the immediate problem seems to be more concerned with Automatic Bug Reporting Tool and/or Bugzilla plugin.

That more immediate problem is: when I run the tool to report a crash, it complains that the Bugzilla Plugin is not properly configured. So I look at Edit->Plugins->Bugzilla just as it suggests, and I see a bugzilla URL that looks right, and blank Login and Password.

However, since I just did the F12 installation, which presumably is designed for any user, not a developer or member of the F12 project, there is no reason to assume that I even HAVE a login. So this is the first question: what Login and Password are they expecting here? Is there a special Login for the ABRT?

Fedora :: Get The Abrt Flashing Light At The Top Of The Screen?

Every time I login I get the abrt flashing light at the top of the screen, but nothing comes up. When I try to run it manually from Applications->System Tools->Automatic Bug Reporting Tool I get a popup with:

I could just dump abrt since it's hardly a necessity, but I'm inclined not to as I think it's a good idea which could potentially be of great benefit to us all.

Fedora :: Mass Delete Abrt Records

Feb 15, 2010

I had a major foul-up a couple of days ago, and I now have thousands of bug reports in the abrt applet. I'm trying to delete them individually, but it's taking forever. Is there a way to mass delete these reports to clean things up? I looked at abrt-cli and it has a --delete command, but only does them one at a time, too.

Fedora :: Sort Is No Longer Case Sensitive?

Dec 16, 2009

I recently upgraded to Fedora release 12 (Constantine) and noticed that sort is no longer case insensitive.

echo -e "ba
a
A" | sort
a
A
ba

I think it should be:

a
ba
A

The -f flag does not change anything. I have sort (GNU coreutils) 7.6.

Fedora Installation :: F13 - LiveCD Won't Boot. Hangs After Abrt Daemon

If I turn off the quiet mode in the boot options, it does throw up some errors (e.g. SQASHFS), and then stops after "starting abrt daemon".

On an AMD Athelon. It worked fine of F9, but started playing up, so I'm looking at upgrading.

Fedora :: Getting A Red Symbol On Taskbar With The Message "crash Detected In Abrt-gui?

Feb 2, 2011

frequently getting a red symbol on my taskbar with the message "crash detected in abrt-gui ...".What program is producing this? There is no indication of what action I'm supposed to take, so the message is not useful. It also seems to violate a basic principle that any program producing an error message should announce its own name.

Fedora :: File Name Globbing No Longer Case Sensitive In Core 12?

Dec 31, 2009

Some of my files and directories were mysteriously disappearing and some of my shell scripts were failing after the upgrade to Fedora Core 12. After some debugging I found out that file name globbing is no longer case sensitive in Fedora Core 12, that is

rm -rf [a-z]*

now also trashes all files and directories starting with [A-Z], which explains the removed files and directories

and

ls [a-z]*

now also includes files and directories starting with [A-Z], which caused my shell scripts to fail.

Is this a bug or a 'feature'?

Fedora :: ABRT Not Connecting To Bugzilla Nor The Remote Servers To Analyse Core Dumps

Jun 14, 2011

Has anyone noticed ABRT not being able to connect to Bugzilla or the remote Core Dump analysis server? Since my upgrade during the beta phase of F15 I have been unable to file bug reports from ABRT's traces, nor has it offered me the option to file bugs to bugzilla. What it does, however, is offer me to analyse the Core Dump and backtrace of the crash using either the remote server or locally with GDB. Needless to say I'm clueless in GDB, and it requires a LOT of debug symbols found in the corresponding debug packages. But trying to use the remote analysis server always results in a message of the server being busy and to try again later. IIRC the last time I was able to file a bug through ABRT was in 13, has anyone been able to do so in 15?

Fedora Installation :: Package Installer Error - Apps Security Sensitive

Mar 12, 2009

I'm logged in as root and want to run Add/Remove Software (Package Installer) but get the message telling me

Code:
Running graphical applications as a privileged user should be avoided for security reasons. Package management applications are security sensitive and therefore this application will now close.

How must I install applications? Surely the world is getting paranoid with all this hackers and viruses, because with every new version O/S, the security features gets more and more; up to the point that you can't fricken do and play around with your pc as you would.

Fedora :: How To Make Mouse Pointer Less Sensitive To Mouse Movements

Jul 9, 2010

I'm running FC12 and GNOME.If I move the physical mouse about one inch, the mouse pointer moves across the entire screen.That's way too fast and way to sensitive.I prefer the mouse pointer to move far less distance on the screen when the physical mouse is moved.

From System->Preferences->Mouse, I set the various mouse Pointer Speed acceleration and Sensitivity to Slow, Fast, Low, High, and and I couldn't get it any better. At the least sensitive settings. if I move the physical mouse one inch, the mouse pointer moves across the entire screen.How can make the mouse pointer less sensitive to mouse movements?

General :: GNU Sort By Case-sensitive?

But sometimes I want to sort by case-sensitive, so the upper-case letters come first, then lower-case letter.

General :: Make The Touchpad Less Sensitive?

Jul 13, 2011

The touchpad on my Lenovo Z560 is to sensitive. I went into the mouse setting and adjusted the pointer speed sensitivity as low as possible but I don't see any difference. The lightest touch will move the pointer. I saw where some have modified the xorg.conf file but I can't find it in Ubuntu 11.04. From what I could find with Google this laptop uses a Synaptics touchpad. I installed Gpointing-device-settings and was able to change the speed but not the sensitivity. How can I make the touchpad less sensitive?
