Fedora :: CodeBlocks Writing To Vfat Partition Permission Error?

Dec 30, 2010

I partitioned my drive to dual boot with XP, and I also added in a fat32 partition so both Windows and Linux can read/write to there to share files. I now have a problem with permissions (I know that fat32/vfat does not support permissions.) I can as my normal user read/write to this partition, but I want to set-up a CodeBlocks project on there and this is where I run into my permissions error.I can create it and the .cbp file is there ect. but I can not save any work, it will complain ('could not write', or sometimes with 'maybe this drive is write protected'.) I have something like

UUID=1234-1A23 /repo vfat defaults,umask=000 0 0
in my /etc/fstab

OpenSUSE :: Permission Error When Writing To NTFS In Dolphin / Get Rid Of It?

Mar 2, 2010

I'm fairly new to linux and I have a dual boot laptop with OpenSUSE 11.2 and Windows 7. I have ntfs-3g and have full read-write ability to my Windows drive through OpenSUSE thanks to NTFS - openSUSE. The only problem is whenever I write to the NTFS Windows drive via Dolphin it does the writing but I get an alert box saying:
"Could not change permissions for <path to new file>" with an OK button.
If I write more than one file I'll get one alert box for each file unless I don't press OK until after it finishes writing all the files in which case it will just give me that one that it was showing (once I press OK there aren't any more boxes).
Since I have full ability to read-write this isn't that big of a problem it's just annoying as hell an I'm sure it's pretty simple to get rid of. code...

Ubuntu :: Install CodeBlocks 10.05 Using The Codeblocks Debian?

Jan 9, 2011

I want to install CodeBlocks 10.05 using the Codeblocks Debian binary package from [URL], which requires upgrading to a newer version of wxwidgets than Ubuntu provides. So I followed the instructions at wxpython.org adding their gpg key and adding their repositories to my sources.list. But when I ask Synaptic to Mark All Upgrades, it warns:


You are about to install software that can't be authenticated! etc., etc...

In Settings/Repositories/Authentication Robin Dunn's (the xwPython creator) key is listed, and if I simply run sudo apt-get -s upgrade in a terminal, apt doesn't complain at all. It gives:

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
The following packages will be upgraded:

General :: Converting A Vfat Extended Partition Into A Ext4 Partition?

Jan 29, 2011

I want to convert a vfat partition into an ext4 partition. This is on my wife's machine and she deleted the Windoze partition as she now prefers Linux. Here is the (edited) output from fdisk -l:-

/dev/sda2 514048 4708351 2097152 83 Linux
/dev/sda3 4708352 6805503 1048576 82 Linux swap
/dev/sda4 52693200 234436544 90871672+ f W95 Ext'd (LBA)
/dev/sda5 59006800 234227699 87610446 83 Linux

I want to change /dev/sda4 to 83 to free up space for Linux without losing the partitions in this 'extended' partition!

Fedora Installation :: Will 13 Allow To Install Grub In Its Own Partition Without Writing Over The MBR

May 23, 2010

My laptop came with a hidden partition for restoring Vista instead of an install disk. I installed Ubuntu 9.04, which had an "Advanced" option that allowed me to install grub in the Ubuntu partition without writing over the MBR. Then I used EasyBCD to add Ubuntu to the Vista boot loader. I wanted to do this so that I can still restore the factory copy of Vista from the hidden partition if I need to. I upgraded the Ubuntu to 9.10, still using grub. When I did a fresh install of Ubuntu 10.04 it went to grub2, and I haven't figured out how to boot into it with EasyBCD yet.But I would like to try Fedora anyway. I will wait a couple of days and get 13.

1. Which grub does Fedora 13 use?

2. Will Fedora 13 allow me to install grub in its own partition without writing over the MBR?

Here is the first line from the exception report:

Fedora :: Writing Partition Image To Free Space At End Of Drive?

Aug 22, 2011

restore a partition images on another machine to the unused space on my laptop. I'm using netcat and dd to restore the partition.

On laptop:

nc -l 9000 | dd bs=1024 conv=notrunc,noerror seek=<some block pos> of=/dev/sda

On W/S:

dd if=part.img bs=1024 | nc 9000

The problem is that fdisk -l displays start & end sectors of the partitions and I need to know blocks. How do I determine the block number after the last partition to start writing this image?


cat /proc/partitions

Displays blocks per partition. I could add those numbers up but is sure would be nice to have a utility that just give you what you need.

General :: Vfat Partition Not Recognized By Windows 7?

Dec 13, 2010

I have a 320GB external HDD with 2 partitions, both primary:

1. vfat 100GB
2. ext3 remainder

Both were formatted when I created them with qtparted. Windows 7 sees them, and says they are healthy, but does not recognize the vfat partition. Is it too big, perhaps? Short of moving everything off the vfat partition and recreating it with W7, how do I fix it? I think W7 uses some sort of extended fat32 now?

Hardware :: Ran Mkfs.vfat Over Top Ntfs Partition - Any Way To Restore Ntfs Partition Info?

Oct 12, 2010

I was attempting to format a flash drive, and well, used the wrong sdX device. I've run DiskInternals Partition Recovery tool, and all my files are still there (you have to pay $139 to have it restore the files). Is there any way using tools in linux to restore the ntfs partition/files? It was a single disk with the partition taking the entire drive. I've tried mounting it with the -t option, but it says invalid ntfs signature. Man, two lessons the hard way, make sure you backup (duh) and be careful what you type as root.

General :: Auto-mount A Vfat Partition As User?

Nov 1, 2010

I have a vfat partition under RedHat RHEL5 that I currently must mount manualy after each boot. I would like it to auto-mount but I cannot find a way to do this without it becoming ro except for root. My other partitions auto-mount just fine. I have tried the vfat as a separate partition and as a VLM logical drive (as it currently is).

The fstab statement:

"/dev/VolGroup00/LogVolDos /dos vfat noauto,users 0 0"

allows me to mount it as a user. The statement:

"/dev/VolGroup00/LogVolDos /dos vfat defaults 1 2"

is what I use for other VLM partitions, but for the vfat it seems to only allow root access. Manually mount this partition is OK, it's just that I have sometimes forgotten and then it is not included in backups. What do I need to do to make the vfat auto-mount as accessible for a user?

General :: Removing Write Permission Does Not Prevent Root From Writing To File

Feb 3, 2010

I just noticed on my Ubuntu machine (ext3 filesystem) that removing write permissions from a file does not keep root from writing to it. Is this a general rule of UNIX file permissions? Or specific to Ubuntu? Or a misconfiguration on my machine? Writing to the file fails (as expected) if I do this from my normal user account.Is this normal behavior?Is there a way to prevent root from accidentally writing to a file (Preferably using normal filesystem mechanisms, not AppArmor, etc.)

I understand that root has total control over the system and can, eg, change the permissions on any file.My question is whether currently set permissions are enforced on code running as root. The idea is the root user preventing her/himself from accidentally writing to a file. also understand that one should not be logged in as root for normal operations.

Fedora :: Cannot Save Files In Codeblocks IDE Nor Can Get Eric IDE To Function Either?

Dec 31, 2009

I can not get many things to work as I have no way to access root priveledges in Fedora 10. I tried before to install fedora 11, then 12 and hit roadblocks. The problem was both went through long installation times and then simply said not enough space in boot file. I then tried to remove images as it said and could not boot at all as I received an error saying something like file missing and it returned me to the boot screen. I then reloaded fedora 10, went through the over 700 ! security upgrades and set it all up. My problem is several things I try to set up I need root priveledges to setup. I can not save files in codeblocks IDE nor can I get Eric IDE to function either, also the same with a neat looking game sauerbraten.

I am happy with Fedora 10, everything works on the hardware side, my cdma sprint net connection works flawlessly, even my wirless works most times. I can not get to root at all, when I try to use the sudo ed it asks me for a password for ed then returns ed is not in sudoers file this incident will be reported. I tried sudo root and it asks me for root password and I give it correctly three times and then it says 3 incorrect attempts and exits. I can not get into sudoers file to edit as I have no permissions. I set up another user and group with id 101 (lowest I could use) and included all the groups in root - halt, shutdown, root etc and when I switched users and tried to access root as Edward no permissions again. I then tried sudo Edward and it asked for my password again, I used the proper one and still got the message Edward is not in sudoers file this incident will be reported. Also it seems to me I should be able to get into root through the switch users, I tried typing in root then the correct root password and that just returns to the prompt again. I know the root password is correct as I use it access the Aunthentication app and the users and groups app and it allows me access to these as root?.

General :: Don't Have Permission To Read DATA Partition; Partition No Longer Visible

Oct 30, 2010

I've been using Ubuntu 10.10 for just under a week. Recently, a partition called 'Data' has disappeared, and all my music and documents along with it. The folder is not to be seen in Places or on my desktop. My only way of finding it is to go to terminal. But when I try to open it there I get an error saying I don't have permission to read it. In Puppy Linux and SliTaz I can easily find the partition and read it. What should I do to bring it back in Ubuntu?

Ubuntu :: Live Cd Writing To Xp Partition?

Feb 19, 2010

I had occasion to boot Ubuntu livecd yesterday on a Dell machine with XP installed. I pressed the Escape key during boot to see what might be happening behind the Graphic ...... and got a rather upsetting surprise ..... ... apparently Ubuntu was reading and writing to the XP partition ..... without any notification to me. I don't have the exact wording to hand, but what is said was that the XP install was 'dirty' and it was fixing it .... fixed! I used a 9.10 CD. Is there any information out there that addresses this behaviour? Is there a way to boot the CD and prevent this from happening? I do not expect or want ANY liveCD to write to ANY partition on ANY PC I might boot using that liveCD without my explicit permission/instruction. That this liveCD did write to a partition without asking or informing me is sufficient cause for me never to use such a liveCD again.

Fedora Networking :: Nfs Permission Error On Diskless Environment

Dec 9, 2010

I'm trying to set-up a diskless environment on my home network, based on a F12 server and one FC14 client and I have a problem that I think is related to NFS, but googling around I cannot find any solution.
Basicly the client boots correctly, gdm fires up showing the login window, but the system doesn't let me in, if I switch to console (CTRL+ALT+F2) I cannot login with both standard and super user getting a "permission denied" error.

I tryed to mount the exported fs on another computer and ls -l on the mounted dir shows both user and group set to nobody.

If i mount the exported dir on server side (i.e. mount -t nfs localhost:/...) permissions user and group shows correctly

General :: Partition - Or Dolphin - KDE - Won't Allow Writing To Drive - KDE

May 17, 2011

I am using a new install of Kubuntu 10.04 LTS. My system is a 64-bit AMD desktop.

I use a small partition for my entire Kubuntu install, and use separate, larger partitions for my media and work files.

I opened up Dolphin (my KDE file manager) via GUI, navigated to my media partition, and attempted to create a new folder by
Create New->
New Folder-> etc

The Create New in the menu is ghosted out, as if I have no permission to access it.

How can I write files to the drive?

Fedora Security :: Error - Cannot Read /etc/shadow: Permission Denied

Jan 20, 2010

This is weird, today I updated my system and while trying to visudo from single user mode got

"cannot read /etc/shadow: Permission denied"

which kept me from doing anything until I switched to file permissions of 400 on shadow, then back. Is this being experienced by anyone else or just me? /etc/security/limits.conf doesn't seem like it wants to change in enforcing mode either and I can't find any alerts to provide clues on the situation.
