Fedora Installation :: Getting Sudo Insults To Work - Not Built Into The Rpm

Jan 21, 2009

I'm running into an issue on my fedora installations getting sudo insults to work. I'm fairly new to the distro, but in other distros, I just had to add insults to the Defaults line within visudo. Then I could sudo -K to reset my sudo session and it worked.

Since I installed sudo from yum, I suppose it's possible that insult support is not built into the rpm. I'm sure others got it working and I was hoping not to have to manually compile sudo with insults support as I don't want to break yum for updates/upgrades. If that's the only option, I'm more than happy to go that route, just would like it as a last resort.

OpenSUSE :: Setup The Sudo Insults Command?

Jun 13, 2011

How do you setup the sudo command so that it will insult the user if they enter the wrong password? I know it sounds kind of random, but I found that it was an option while looking up something else. I tried adding "Defaults insults" using visudo, and commenting out "Defaults targetpw" and "ALL ALL=(ALL) ALL", and adding my username as "blank888 ALL=(ALL) ALL" but I still can't get it to work right.

Fedora Hardware :: Sudo Does Not Work With Fingerprint (SU Still Do)

Jan 20, 2010

Since yesterday my sudo doesn't work with my fingerprintreader anymore. su and GDM still do. sudo just asks me for the password instead of asking for a finger-swipe. AFAIR I changed nothing, but I accidentally forwarded the USB-Port on which the scanner is connected to VMware. I disconnected it, but maybe there could be the problem.
Fedora 12 x64, Thinkpad T61 integrated Fingerreader.

Ubuntu :: Asrock Ion Built In IR Wont Work With The Drivers?

Jun 15, 2010

Ever since newer karmic kernels 2.6.31-21 and 2.6.31-22 the Asrock ion built in IR wont work with the drivers Asrock provides even though they have since then provided drivers for 10.04, which still doesnt fix the issues with the remote (just doesnt work)


The solution is of course to downgrade kernel to 2.6.31-20 #58 which remote works fine and newer script version introduces a fix to this. However looking at the available packages seems that most of the kernel 2.6.31-20 is no longer available to re-install.

e.g. linux-headers linux-image-wireless-backports etc etc were able to get a fairly working 2.6.31-20 but most of that kernel version ike I said s no longer available.

So question is. Can anyone shed light where to find the missing 2.6.31-20 #58 stuff so we have access to a full downgrade? Any information taht could help get a full downgrade to 2.6.31-20 #58.

Fedora Security :: Cannot Open /var/db/sudo After Sudo Package Upgrade?

Sep 16, 2010

A day ago I finally got around to upgrading the PackageKit installation that had been sitting for a week and a half, so I found a new upgrade for sudo available - the one that gives the sudoreplay command, I forget which version number it is exactly. When I try to use the sudo command I get this notice in my terminal:Code:Can't open /var/db/sudo/me/1: Permission deniedI didn't get it before. What do I have to do to make it open? I'm using SELinux in enforcing mode if that helps.

Hardware :: Getting The Built-in Webcam To Work On An Asus X83Vb-X2 With Ubuntu 9.04?

Jun 29, 2009

I'm having trouble with the webcam on my laptop. This is a full-sized laptop, not one of the Eee models.I'm not entirely sure what the model or chipset of the webcam is, as there doesn't seem to be much documentation available (as far as I know, this is Asus' first foray into the laptop market in the US).

I previously had the camera working just fine in Windows Vista, so I know the hardware is just fine. I have tried several programs to get the device working, and some (Cheese, for example) are able to get the green light next to the camera to turn on. I've tried running a number of programs as both the normal user and as root, but I don't seem to be able to get the camera to output video. I didn't see any drivers on the Asus site. Is anyone able to lend a hand with this? I'm moving out of the country in a month, and would really love to be able to keep in touch with my family and friends over skype or something similar.

EDIT: In programs like Cheese, the webcam seems to be detected as "USB2.0 UVC PC Camera (/dev/video0)". I imagine it's a good sign that video0 is available.

Ubuntu Installation :: "Error Booting Operating System" - Sudo Grub; Root (hd0.0)...) Doesn't Work

Mar 1, 2011

I installed 10.04 (clean install) on a 250G drive (partitioned to 107G for the system files). It was working fine, until I wanted to install Window$ for the use of Adobe stuff. I popped the Windows XP disc in, it loaded its files, then I tried to choose a partition for installation. There was an error saying that I can't do that, and needed to delete a partition blah blah. I thought it was too much trouble, so I quit and just wanted to use my 10.04. Booted, and it says "Error booting operating system" I WAS SHOCKED.

I tried to install grub (but don't need that right? I DO NOT want to dual boot now), but the usual method ( the sudo grub; root (hd0.0)...) doesn't work ,because something like "stage1" is missing. I tried many methods by still the same error. The reason I do not want a clean install is that I did many fixes on my 10.04 so that it would work with my EeePC 1001pxd, and I do not want to go through that again. I will be checking my email frequently on other computers if I have a chance.

Hardware :: Getting Acer 5536 Built-in Modem Conexant CX11270 To Work With Efax-gtk?

Nov 13, 2010

I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 on Acer Aspire 5536. Used efax-gtk debian unstable package v3.2.3 to send a .ps file. Even by running software with root privileges the output is:


Socket running on port 9900
efax-0.9a: 11:28:27 opened /dev/ttyS1
efax-0.9a: 11:28:27 Error: tcgetattr on fd=7 failed: Input/output error


Decided to first get ride of input output error. using sudo wvdialconf /etc/wvdial.conf command:


Editing `/etc/wvdial.conf'. Scanning your serial ports for a modem.

If you still have problems, send mail to <wvdial-list@lists.nit.ca>. Using setserial command returned a huge syntax text. Modem is recognized under windows and it is HDA CX11270 Softmodem. How can I get it to work?

Fedora Security :: Terminal Equivalent Of "sudo" Is It Still Sudo/KDEsudo

May 29, 2010

I am new to fedora (been using debian based distro's for the longest time). With the new release I decided to give FC13 (The kde 64 bit spin) a try. I told it to wipe my entire hdd and encrypt the partitions. The partition manager made a few LVM partitions which I assume are encrypted.

The problem I am having is that if I attempt to use an application that would normally need root access to run, I am not prompted to enter my root password. Instead, I am required to logout and log back in as root. Is there a way to make it so that FC13 will prompt me to enter in my root password so I do not need to log in and out? Or is there something Different I should have done during the install process? Also, what is the terminal equivalent of "sudo" in fedora, or is it still sudo/KDEsudo

I also have not used SE Linux before. Do I need to manually enforce the permissions for my applications and generate my own profiles for it, or is that done automatically?

Ubuntu :: Su Command Won't Work, But Sudo Will?

Oct 16, 2010

I was attempting to install the fglrx driver on my new ubuntu insallation, following a guide I found from google. At one point it says I need to login as super user, so I tried and no matter how many times I try it just keeps saying authentication failed. I even tried typing in my password with 1 finger, multiple times, every single time, authentication failed. So I decided to try the sudo command with fdisk -l, worked flawlessly. Tried the su command again, authentication failed, I have no idea what in heck is causing this but it just won't stop happening.

General :: Ubuntu / Sudo Also Doesn't Work

Jun 30, 2011

I have ubuntu server 8.x which works Ok but the other day I changed the owner of some files "the directory /etc" from root me. Now a lot commands do not work like reboot and such. So I tried to put ownership back to root and I can't. I say I dont have proper privilege. Sudo also doesn't work. I conect to the server using ssh with putty. What could I do to fix the problem? Update to the new version? This server has been working really well for a few years. The reason I changed the owner of the directory to myself is so I could edit some config files from my windows machine using a FTP client like WinSCP.

Ubuntu Installation :: Getting Qt 4.7.0 Built And Installed

Aug 13, 2010

I wanted to develop using some of the bleeding edge features of the new Qt framework, but there is no easy way to get 4.7.0 installed on lucid. The build is relatively easy with a few minor annoyances.

# first grab some general require packages
sudo apt-get install build-essential
# now grab the build deps for the current qt (mostly the same as for 4.7.0)
sudo apt-get build-dep qt4-x11
# need to grab some extra libs that are not build deps
sudo apt-get install libphonon-dev libgstreamer0.10-dev libgstreamer-plugins-base0.10-dev
# grab the source package from [URL]
wget [URL]

# now configure qt 4.7.0 with declarative support
# the annoyances here are all the extra includes that are required
# i am installing to $HOME/qt/qt-4.7.0 but feel free to change that
./configure -prefix $HOME/qt/qt-4.7.0 -I/usr/include/gstreamer-0.10 -I/usr/include/glib-2.0 -I/usr/lib/glib-2.0/include -I/usr/include/libxml2 -opensource -declarative -confirm-license -v 2>&1 | tee config.log
# build (takes a while)
# install
make install

If anyone out there knows of a PPA that is building Qt 4.7.0, please let me know. I would be interested to abandon building it manually.
