Fedora Networking :: Leave "domain" Field Blank?

Apr 8, 2010

I've just installed FC12 on my nettop and I've notice that when I go to "system -> network" the hostname is "Fedora001". When I ping its IP I get "new-host.home". What did I do or didn't do? How do I correct this? Do I need to change it in the "hostname" file?Also, can I leave "domain" field blank?

Red Hat / Fedora :: Capture Blank Field In /var/log/secure

Jan 7, 2011

An unsuccessful login via a tty by a known user and an unknown user will generate an almost exact line in /var/log/secure with the exception of the last field. To see this specifically do Ctrl-Alt-F2, for example. Now login with a known user and log out. Next attempt a login with a bogus user name which fails. Go back to your GUI enviroment (Ctrl-Alt-F7) and then tail /var/log/secure. For the known user the last field will be "user=some_name_here. The unknown user will not have a "user=" field.

How do I capture the two via different variables in bash?

For example: KNOWN_USER=`syntax that finds the user= field.` echo There is a user= field and the user is mmouse.

UNKNOWN_USER=`syntax that does NOT find the user= field` echo There is NO user= field and an unknown user tried to login.

If been exploring using sed to grab (or not grab) that last field, but haven't hit upon the right syntax yet.

General :: Limit Video Output To A Section Of A Display And Leave The Rest Blank

Feb 22, 2011

The video projector I have to use this week projects an image too large for its screen and spills over on every side.

Fixing the physical setup is not possible or at least unlikely for the moment: the only solution is to carefully resize and position windows so that they display in the visible part of the screen - using full-screen mode is out.

Is there a way around this via software, using xrandr for example?

# xrandr doesn't have a padding option...xrandr --output VGA1 --mode 1360x768 --left-of LVDS1 --padding 200

Fedora Networking :: Windows Sever 2k3 Domain Controller / Use Machine With Samba As Secondary Domain Controller?

Apr 28, 2009

At the school i work in i have a server2k3 server that provides a domain to all the windows clients, aswell as a fedora server that acts as an imaging machine and webserver.

Im rather concious of the fact that if for any reason the Server2k3 server was to die there is no backup of active directory, or anything that can take its place whilst a replacement is found.

So is it possible to use a fedora machine with samba as a secondary domain controller? so it can be used as a login server, and has a copy of AD.

General :: Field-terminating Char Appears Within Field Values?

May 18, 2010

I've had a very colorful morning learning the innerparts of Linux's sort command, and have come across yet another issue that I can't seem to find an answer for in the documentation. I'm currently using -t, to indicate that my fields are split by the comma character, but I'm finding that in some of my files, the comma is used (between double-quotes) within values:

Jonathan Sampson,,foo@bar.com,0987654321
"Foobar CEO,","CEO,",ceo@foobar.com,,

How can I use a comma to terminate my fields, but ignore the occurences of it within values? Is this fairly simple, or do I need to re-export all of my data using a more-foreign field-terminator? (Unfortunately, I do not have any control over declaring a different terminator with this particular project).

Programming :: Awk - Print A Field When Field Position Is Unknown ?

Mar 28, 2010

I'm trying to display fields from flat files where the first 8 fields are always the same. Fields 9 - n are varied but will contain specific patterns I'm after. I'm using this so far because "mySearch" is on each line I want to examine.


How would you pattern match and include 2 additional fields above field $9 but change field position from line to line?

Am I supposed to parse something and call it back another way?

Fedora :: Leave Message - On Locked Screen ?

Mar 28, 2010

When I first started using Fedora 10 I had a bit of a play with the "Leave Message" button that appears when you lock the screen. After you type the message and click save, the next time the user logged in the messages would pop up.

Ever since Fedora 12, when I leave a test message, after I log in nothing pops up. This happens on two different computers so I don't think its an obscure hardware problem.

Fedora Networking :: Blocking Subdirectories, NOT A Whole Domain/IP?

Aug 8, 2009

So, let's say there was a website www.qwerty.com, which is completely appropriate if not necessary except for the asdfg subfolder (www.qwerty.com/asdfg), which contains,say, pornographic material I want blocked. Is there any way to block "asdfg" without blocking the entire domain (www.qwerty.com)? I already tried editing my hosts file, but apparently that only works for whole domains.Also, while we're at it, can the hosts file be used to actually block IP addresses, or just domain names (so if I wanted qwerty.com with IP of to be completely blocked, but know my family or employees are little smarter than that, I could add the line "" to prevent all access to that website)?

Fedora Networking :: Ping's Reply Even When Domain Is Invalid?

When I tried to go to the site in a browser, it was some page like "I hope we can help you find what you're looking for". I thought that was ridiculous, so I changed to OpenDNS's DNS server.

Fedora Networking :: Can't Reach Computer Internally With Domain Name

Apr 8, 2010

I am not sure if this is a problem with my router or a problem with the fedora 12 server i am using.

- internal here means within my home network, external means from outside it.

I can access my server and webpage:

internally using
externally using http://MYDNS___EXAMPLE.com

but I cannot access the server internally using http://MYDNS___EXAMPLE.com

This is a pain in the butt because I have all of my client software setup with an internal and external access point (ssh, proFTPd, http, MS Access database connected to MySql, etc.)

Fedora Networking :: Local Host Names Without Domain Using Bind?

May 10, 2009

I want to use single label host names on my local LAN, without using any domain (at least no registered one). My machines should be named in a fashion similar to 'myserver', 'mydesktop' etc. so that i from a browser on any LAN machine may write 'http://myserver', and get the webserver on 'myserver' (so NO domain part, e.g. myserver.domain).

Do i need to create a DNS zone for each host or is there a way to put all host in a single zone, if so; which? Would such a name be considered a root domain?
