Fedora :: FC12 Logs In And Then Logs Out?

Apr 19, 2010

When I try to login as me - it gets pretty far but then something happens and automatically logs out. This happens in Gnome, Kde too. Now - I have no problem logging in a Root. Is there a way I can try to stop the login process before it kicks me out, or is there a way to look at some files to tell me what's going on?

Fedora :: PackageKit : How To See Back-end Logs

Jul 30, 2010

PackageKit uses yum as a back-end.

Is it possible to view the full logs of what yum has done through packagekit?

I ask this, because if you update your packages, and if a configuration file cannot be automatically merged, you will have two configuration files: /etc/config.rpmnew (or .rpmsav, I don't remember) and /etc/config.code...

Fedora :: System Shutdown Only Logs Out

Feb 14, 2011

I currently run kernel (sort of). When I select from the Gnome menu System -> Shutdown and select Shutdown from the dialog, my system only logs out, presenting me with the greeting screen. While this is a minor problem and I rarely shutdown my machine, it is mildly disconcerting.I have dropped back to and that shutdowns properly using this method. (Also, works properly). I can imagine that it might close some security issue in which an unauthorized user is able to halt the entire machine. Especially if this is something that will continue in future releases of the kernel.

Fedora Servers :: Syslog Listening On Port 514 For Both Firewall And IDS Logs?

Jan 17, 2010

Currently Im having a syslog server that consolidate firewall logs on port 514 udp. Im also having a IDS device that I wish to push its logs to this particular syslog server so that I can retrieve my IDS logs on this server as well.

Is it possible to do so?Having syslog listening on port 514 for both firewall and IDS logs? If it is possible will the logs be recorded in a single log file?Or will it be recorded in a separate log file ie. firewall.log, IDS.log etc?? I wish to have them in separate individual log files or else there will be hard time segregating the log entries in a single file. Can anyone advice on how to achieve this??

Fedora Networking :: Use Wireless-Assistant 0.5.7 There's No Connection - AP Logs Show Numerous Connections And Disconnections

Jun 20, 2009

I'm trying to get wireless working in F10. Using pci wireless card with Atheros chipset. To be sure, I tested this hardware with a PCLinuxOS Live CD. Connects to AP perfectly.

Hardware drivers seem all OK in F10, and ifconfig shows wlan0 as expected. When I use the Wireless-Assistant 0.5.7 there's no connection.

Actually, the AP logs show numerous connections and disconnections.

Preferring CLI, I'm using a drop-dead simple wpa_supplicant.conf as follows :

Fedora Hardware :: NVIDIA Driver - System Randomly Logs The User Out And / Or Restarts The Session With No Warning

Jan 31, 2011

I've recently installed Fedora 14 (x86_64) on my Alienware m15x laptop which has a NVIDIA GTX 260m onboard. Now I have followed leigh123linux's guide to installing those drivers on F14. The installation is a success and everything seems to be in working order, until the system randomly logs the user out and/or restarts the session with no warning. The screen goes black and the nvidia logo appears and then its back to the login screen again. This can happen many times with no apparent stop insight. This does not happen with the default F14 drivers that come with the installation, I have tried several re installations of the Fedora OS and several re installations of the NVIDIA driver, i still have the same problems.

Ubuntu Networking :: Cam Does Not Keep Logs

Nov 27, 2010

1) THE SETUP: I have a home set-up with 3 Ubuntu computers, including an HTPC which is always on, plugged into a Verizon FIOS routerI also have a web based cam (TrendNet TV IP422W).The cam has an ethernet jack so it plugs in directly to the router.It has a simple firmware that allows users to log in via HTTP.It is also managed via HTTP.

2)THE PROBLEM: the cam does not keep logs.So I never know who is logged in at any one point. It's not a big deal, but it is annoying.I want to fix that.The router does not keep logs either.I was told I can get a linux based router to replace (or plug in) to the default FIOS router, but I am looking for something simpler and cheaper.

3)THE FAILED SOLUTION: my idea was to set up the Ubuntu HTPC to always forward a given port to the webcam via the LAN. I tried to follow the instruction from URL...as best I could, see below. 6666 is the port that the cam is listening to (the router is set to forward that port to the cam's LAN IP 5555 is the port that I am trying to forward through the HTPC (ubuntu.local or below, and the router is set to forward any 5555 TCP packets to the HTPC at iptables commands below where run on the HTPC.

Ubuntu :: 10.10 Logs Out Unexpectedly?

Jun 7, 2011

My laptop Dell Inspiron 1420 running Ubuntu 10.10 has started logging itself out every 30-60 minutes or so. I am trying to figure out what is the problem. I am wondering if it is

1) a hardware problem. I have recently replaced the cooling fan which required disassembling the whole thing into small pieces. The computer has worked without a problem for one day after the repair.


2) a problem with a recent update. The computer started logging itself out after a recent update. This coincidence is suspicious, but I hasn't noticed anyone reporting a similar problem with Ubuntu 10.10.

Is there a way I can see what is happening through the system log? What would be the keyword I should look for in the log files?

Can I track the last updates I have applied and roll them back?

The only solution I see now is to reassemble the laptop to see if it helps.

Ubuntu Security :: Can't Find The UFW Logs

Mar 18, 2010

I cannot find one single UFW event anywhere. I have researched this and see that others have trouble finding these logs too. I have looked in every /var/log there is and I can't find one event. I have UFW enabled, default deny and logging set to medium from a previous logging low(in hopes this would create more events to be seen). In terminal, UFW is shown as active. I have been using Ubuntu for more than a year now and I recall seeing UFW events with every session in some /var/logs in Ubuntu 9.04 - I'm running 9.10 now. I have also tried looking throughout the system files and have found nothing. Is UFW not working properly or could I just not be experiencing any firewall events(not likely)?
