Fedora :: The Never-ending Of Mounting Permissions?

Feb 12, 2010

I hope I won't get bashed too much on my first post here. The problem I'm experiencing seems to be well known, yet I haven't come across a definite solution to it while searching the forums. I've got an external drive connected to my laptop via eSATA. When I want to mount it as a normal user from GUI level, I'm required to supply the root password since apparently the system's policy doesn't allow external drives partitions to be mounted.

The closest solution to what I would like to achieve is given by giulix in this post. Yet, with the polkit-gnome-authorization utility removed from Fedora 12 (at least so I've heard on mailing lists), it's difficult to find out where to start in terms of policy editing. What I would like to have is being able to mount this volume as a normal user from GUI level. I know I could just add an entry to /etc/fstab, but it just seems so old-fashioned and tacky, and besides, it's not, um, "dynamic" and wouldn't utilize hal and dbus, so I wouldn't have an icon on the desktop. (it's not really the reason, I'd just like to have things done the way they should be right now).

Networking :: Mounting Permissions Error / Mounting A Windows Host?

May 28, 2009

I am having permissions errors every time I try to mount a windows host. I have a linux server and all the windows computers can see that computer and its files, but we wanted to start backing up the linux machine to one of our other computers. so I tried to mount one of the computers. here is the sequence of events:

$mount -t cifs //$ /mnt/Anita-comp
password: (I have no password so I left it blank)
Mount error (13): Permission Denied
I tried all sorts of passwords we use around the office and none of them worked.

I then decided to try mounting one of our other computers. this one looked like it worked fine. no error messages at all. (I left password blank) so I look in my filesystem and the mounted drive is not in the /mnt/Anita-comp file. What gives?

Fedora :: Mounting 2nd Drive With Permissions For Any User?

Feb 25, 2010

I looked through the guides and didn't find what I was looking for. Here is what I have so far:


That's the drive I am wanting to mount with full permissions for anyone. Right now the folder only has root permissions. Is there a specific group ID I assign this in fstab so it's automatically mounted with full permissions for anyone who logs in?

Fedora :: Mounting Windows Server08 From Fedora 8 With Read/write Permissions?

Oct 7, 2009

I have Fedora 8 and we just switched over from a Windows "File Server" to Windows Server 2008 ( I updated my fstab file and now when I go onto the Windows folders, I can list and read files, even save them, but new files are always read only.

fstab file (some, without the asterisks):
// /home/mriuser/Desktop/fs cifs rw,username=jsadino,password=**** 0 0

I've tried ntfs-3g, auto, ntfs, smb, some umask combinations, changing ownerships, changing permissions, everything I could think of, but still can't modify new files.

[root@localhost tmp10]# mkdir tmp2
[root@localhost tmp10]# cd tmp2
[root@localhost tmp2]# touch tmp
[root@localhost tmp2]# ls -l

Ubuntu :: Permissions - Mounting IPhone Using IFuse?

Sep 25, 2010

Has anyone ever seen this before:

I'm continuing on a quest to sync my iOS4 iPhone in xubuntu lucid, and the above is what I get after mounting it with iFuse. Unsurprisingly, I can't actually use it after being mounted with permissions like that. With the iPhone unmounted, an ls -al looks like this

drwxrwxrwx 2 root root 4096 2010-09-25 15:51 iPhone
Has anyone even seen '?' permissions before?

Fedora :: Perl Bot Script Ending And Restarting Every Hour?

Dec 31, 2010

I had an aging RH 7.3 server that I decided was time to upgrade the hardware and software as well. I chose Fedora 13.This server runs an ircd with several bots connected to it. The bot in question is a perl bot based on the old dreambot script. On the RH 7.3 server, it ran forever. On the new Fedora 13 server, it does an EOF and restarts every hour, exactly one hour after it's been started.Is there something limiting the time that a perl script can execute?

Red Hat / Fedora :: Remote XDMCP Connection Ending Every Two Hours?

Jun 16, 2010

I am going through cygwin's XWin.exe (XWin - queary <hostname>) to start a remote session with a RHEL 5.5 workstation. I have run gdmsetup on the worksation to allow the remote connection. Starting the remote session goes off without a problem. After about two hours, it just exits and I have to start over. This is a problem since all my gui's are killed and I have some important processes running.

/var/log/syslog/messages shows:

Jun 15 16:49:53 <host> gconfd (root-12016): SIGHUP received, reloading all databases
Jun 15 16:49:53 <host> gconfd (root-12016): Resolved address "xml:readonly:/etc/gconf/gconf.xml.mandatory" to a read-only configuration source at position 0
Jun 15 16:49:53 <host> gconfd (root-12016): Resolved address "xml:readwrite:/root/.gconf" to a writable configuration source at position 1


There must be a 2 hour timeout set somewhere - maybe in a gconf xml file?

General :: Automatically Set Write Permissions On Mounting A Usb Drive?

Aug 15, 2010

When I mount an external usb drive on linux (CentOs4), the permissions are by default set to read-only. Since there are multiple users on the computer who need to use the external drive, I want everybody to have rw permission for the entire drive. I also want them to be able to mount the drive if the computer has accidentially been shut down. They can use sudo mount to mount the drive, but this will only give them read permission, and I obviously don't want to allow sudo chmod.

Is there a default setting that I can change so that every new external usb disk automatically gets rw permissions?

Ubuntu Servers :: Samba And Mounting Permissions Confusion?

May 18, 2011

I'm having a hard time figuring out how to set permissions on my samba server and on mounting the share. I would appreciate help figuring things out. What I need to achieve is have a server share mounted on a computer and give read write access to the users of that client computer. Also permissions should be respected is a user limits access to a directory or file he creates.

What I did was replicate the users on both server and client computers and create an extra user on the server that has full access to the share both in linux and in samba, and I'm mounting the share on the client computer using that extra user from fstab. (Is this the best way to set things up or is there a better way?)

Now the issues I'm having; Whenever a user A creates a directory or file it's listed as created by user B. It turns out that the UID does not match on both computers. How do I fix that short or deleting and recreating the users in the proper order.

- Backup scripts running as root get lot permission denied errors writing to the share especially when using chown and chgroup. Could someone explain, or point me to an explanation of the logic behind permissions and mounting?

Networking :: Mounting Cifs As User - Permissions With SUID Bit?

Jan 11, 2010

I have looked at a LOT of forum posts and other sites trying to solve this problem but I have had no luck. I've seen the following:[URL].. I have an entry in my fstab that lets root mount a samba share on a Windows Server 2003 machine and gives users full read/write access to the share. The fstab entry looks like:

//servername.net/share /mnt/share cifs rw,user,umask=000,username=someuser,noauto,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777 0 0
However, when a normal user tries to mount the share they get one of two errors:
1. If I have /sbin/mount.cifs set to 777
mount error(1): Operation not permitted
Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g. man mount.cifs)
2. If I have /sbin/mount.cifs set to +s

Code: mount error: permission denied or not superuser and mount.cifs not installed SUID Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I would go about getting a user able to mount this samba share?

General :: Mounting Ext2 Partition With Write Permissions?

Oct 25, 2009

I need to mount my ext2 partition with write permissions for an average user. Right now, I can only write to the volume using sudo or the root account.



# Filesystem: Mountpoint: Type: Options: Dump: FSCK:
/dev/sda1 / ext4 defaults 1 1
/dev/sda5 swap swap defaults 0 0


can't add the options uid=500,gid=500 to the ext2 volume because it says "bad option" I have 1 question. If you have a volume listed in /etc/fstab, and you try to mount it with different options than the ones listed in fstab, will it mount with the new options, or the fstab options?(e.x. if I try to mount /dev/sda6 with: mount-o auto,user,exec,rw,async. Will it mount with async or sync?)

General :: Mounting A FAT32 Memory Stick With Wide Permissions?

May 8, 2010

I'd like to plug a USB FAT32 formatted memory stick into my Linux laptop and have it mount automatically as it does now but with wide open permissions. At the moment it opens with files only being readable and writable by the user but I would like other uses to be able to read and to write to files (i.e. I use Apache to serve a site from the stick for development purposes).If it matters I am running Jolicloud on a netbook.

Ubuntu :: Auto Mounting Ntfs Drive With Execute Permissions?

May 10, 2011

Current when my NTFS external drive is auto mounted, I can't run any executables from it.

If I unmount it and then manually do:

sudo mkdir /media/portable
sudo ntfs-3g /dev/sdc1 /media/portable

it works fine. Is there a way to make the auto-mount have "full" access so I can run applications from it?

Fedora :: Evolution Freezes On Start Up - Ending Alarm Notify Task?

I have had some problems with Evolution. It sometimes freezes on start-up: I have to force it to quit. If I open "System Monitor", and end the evolution-alarm-notify task, then I can restart evolution successfully. I therefore suspect it is that which is causing trouble. What is it and how do I stop it?

Hardware :: Phone And Memory Card Auto Mounting With Write Permissions

Feb 4, 2010

Few weeks ago modified my old mobile phone SE k750i by setting on it w800i firmware. After this my phone isn't really (fully automatically) recognized by Ubuntu (9.10) which is the small problem for me now. Linux recognizes it as a USB device, but doesn't automatically mount it, which is why I have to do that manually and that leads to read only permissions for my user.

Here are the few outputs:

Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 002 Device 006: ID 046d:c222 Logitech, Inc. G15 Keyboard / LCD
Bus 002 Device 005: ID 046d:c221 Logitech, Inc. G15 Keyboard / Keyboard
Bus 002 Device 004: ID 0fce:d028 Sony Ericsson Mobile Communications AB
Bus 002 Device 003: ID 046d:c018 Logitech, Inc. Optical Wheel Mouse
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 046d:c223 Logitech, Inc. G15 Keyboard / USB Hub
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
dmesg | grep usb .....

I've tried to create a custom udev rule via this thread, by putting the correct information according to lsusb:

SUBSYSTEMS=="usb", ATTRS{idVendor}=="0fce", ATTRS{idProduct}=="d028", MODE="0660", OWNER="zivs"
and reloading the udev rules, but that didn't help also.

How could I make my Ubuntu mount the /dev/sdb1 (which is my phone's memory card, since manually mounting it, there's all my phone recorded stuff) automatically on Desktop with all read and write permissions when I connect my phone to computer? Phone gets recognized immediately on Win7 OS ... but after the firmware change it's not really recognized by Ubuntu anymore.

General :: Automatically Mounting With Wide Open Permissions A FAT Formatted USB Flash Drive?

Feb 18, 2011

I have a netbook running Ubuntu Netbook Edition and I would like a USB flash drive to be automatically mounted whenever I plug it in. The drive is FAT formatted. It mounts when I plug it in but all files are only writable by my user, other users only have read access. I understand that I need to add a corresponding entry to the /etc/fstab file. I've added the following so far:/dev/sdb1 /mnt/USB_DRIVE vfat

Firstly, is that appropriate so far? I've created /mnt/USB_DRIVE as root. Next, I'm not sure what options I should be finishing the line with, especially to get all users to be able to write to the drive.

Ubuntu :: 11.04 Crash When Ending X Pid?

My Foxconn nettop NT-A3500 crashed.

I install Ubuntu 11.04 and enter it. Then I install all available updates(in the update manager), activate AMD/ATI closed source GPU driver(under hardware drivers).

Then I do a reboot(sudo reboot). Then I login and do a VT switch to ex:tty2(CTRL + ALT + F2). Then I input the command "Localhost$ sudo pidof X"

will show the pid I have to kill(kill as root or sudo). Then I kill the pid and the NT-A3500 would crash(usually on first try).

Ubuntu :: Restore After Ending Processes?

May 27, 2010

I started simply to end some processes to see if this would help. Ending dbus-deamon and pushing the shutdown button seems to shutdown the computer and temporarily solve the problem. I see that there are better solutions, so I hope it wont occur again.The problem is, I also ended a lot of other processes, like the clock, trashcan, workpane buttons, the sound button, the WiFi button and the show desktop button (and maybe some more I don't know of. I thought these buttons would automatically reappear after a reboot, but this is not the case. I could add some buttons manually, but I still haven't found the sound button and the WiFi button. Also, when I minimalize a window, it doesn't show anywhere on any panel.Luckily I can use alt-tab

Ubuntu :: Partition On 10.04 LTS - Partitions Not Ending On Cylinder Boundries?

Jan 16, 2011

I have installed 10.04 LTS on a few computers lately (stuck at home due to recent surgery and am trying to kill some time) and have been running into some odd issues and cannot figure out what is going on. I am hoping someone can help me out here. The installation appears to work fine every time. The systems also appear to be running without any issues. The weird thing is that every time I run an fdisk -l command, I always get these types of messages:

Disk /dev/sda: 3221 MB, 3221225472 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 391 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x0005437b


cfdisk also gives similar errors:

FATAL ERROR: Bad primary partition 1: Partition ends in the final partial cylinder. I am not doing anything out of the ordinary when installing Ubuntu (as far as i can tell that is). I am not pre-partitioning with external tools for example. I use the Ubuntu installer to setup my partitions.

Server :: Samba Share File/folder Names Ending In Period?

Aug 31, 2010

On one of my Samba shares on my server I have a folder of mp3 files of my CDs. The one I am having an issue with is "Clarence Carter/Dr. C.C." (yes, the one with the ULTIMATE party song). The "Dr. C.C." folder name is normal locally on the server, but across Samba it comes out "DMOU3A~H". It's definitely Samba doing it, because I get the same result whether accessing the share from Linux or Windoze. I can still access the folder this way, but it would be nice to not have Samba mangle the folder name this way. I am using Samba 3.4.2 on an Athlon64 X2 system running Slackware64.
