While trying to download themes for fedora 12,I get to the end it ask for my PW (in sudo) then says it is incorrect.When in graphic inter phase all my passwords are excepted.I've been reading the linux manuel. but can't find the anwser.If I am to put anouther password in where do I do that and how.
I migrated an old SuseLinux 10 box to Debian (Lenny) a couple months ago, and apparently no one noticed you can't change your password. Root can do it because passwd doesn't ask root for a password, but no one else can (although they can log in, passwd doesn't recognize their login password when they attempt to set a new password and it asks).I changed authentication to use blowfish when I setup the server (because the SuseLinux 10 system used it) and apparently the passwd command doesn't work with that. Apparently I need to update another configuration file or possibly get a different program to update the passwd file if I use blowfish. Any ideas?
The weird thing is that it can generate a blowfish hash to set a new password, but apparently can't generate one to authenticate the user.something changed recently and it is no longer generating a blowfish hash when setting a new password. It is generating a hash with only 13 characters. And I can clearly see that many users have changed their passwords.
I have Fedora 14 with minimal installation (without graphical interface and so on) and the application I've been working needs to be initialized on boot up. So, I need to disable the login prompt (and password) by command line. How can I do it? I've seen by GUI, but with command line nothing...
i've gotten my fedora 12 to the point where i can run python3 scripts from command line and can call up python 2.6.2 idle with the command 'idle' from command line. what command will call up python3 (3.1.2 to be exact) idle?
I am writing a script to get hardware information of a particular UNIX machine. To do this, I ftp a shell script (commands to get h/w information) to the target machine and then use SSH to remote the remote script.With FTP, I can pass a password accepted as input the shell script. How can I pass the same password to SSH ? This is because I do not want the user to enter the password twice.
When Linux ask for my password in command line,my keyboard becomes unresponsive just for that moment or let me put it this way,until i need to write my password my keyboard is unresponsive,but for all other things is fine.or for example,i can input my password when i have a graphic interface but i can't with command line or i can't login to my computer from command lineexcuse me if my question is doll,i moved from windows to ubuntu just lastweek,( & i am flying high in sky with ubuntu & digging a very deep hole for windows too!!.)
I have the following commande /sbin/fuser -f -u /u/DT01/F010107 1>/tmp/null 2>/tmp/seausr.T0069 when executing as root 'su' this give me all user using the file. but when tried with 'sudo' i am asked with 'user password'. Is ther anyway to simply get the result without having to supply a password and to see all user not only me. (i have the file open also).
I installed a command-line version of Ubuntu 10.04 using the Alternate CD. The machine was wiped, and I used most of the default settings.
I used a thirteen character user id which consisted of mixed case letters and numbers, and an eighteen character password that contains mixed case letters and numbers and a # sign.
When I rebooted, the command-line login would not accept my password. I assumed I had somehow made a mistake, and just wiped the machine again and reinstalled. This time I was very careful with the user name/pw.
Again, the command-line login did not accept my password!
On a hunch, I took an old Ubuntu 7.10 Alternate CD and erased the machine again. I installed a command-line version of Ubuntu. AGAIN --- it will not accept my password even though I'm 100% sure it is correct.
I have just installed Fedora 11 64bit on a new hard disk, using Intel 975BX2 motherbord, 3Gbyte RAM, 320Gbyte hard disk etc., USB mouse and keyboard. The installation went fine, but when I enter the password for the boot (I assume GRUB was installed) it fails to recognise the password. Do this three times and the boot segment ??? fails to initialise.
I recall a linux magazine i buy indicating that you have to copy and paste the password manually after installation, but i cannot recall the article date. Is this a problem - the password protection for the GRUB boot loader does not work at installation time when using the graphical interface ?. I did not use any odd characters - basic letters and numbers.
I may need to handle a Red Hat server soon and thought that has the same command line.Where do I start if I wanted to learn the command line? Especially, how do you connect to a Redhat / Fedora Server using console on windows and do C programming
i recently did some changes to my hard disk partitonand now linux is in hd0,6when i booted my pc,i got the grub commmand line interfaceso,I think that i need to edit grub.conf in fedora 14then at cmd i did this:
grub> root (hd0,6) grub> kernel (hd0,6)/vmlinuz file not found
I decided on a whim to pursue certifications in other operating systems (currently 70-620 and 70-290 certified with Microsoft) and bought a book on Fedora 10 and installed it on my extra PC. First issue I ran into was that due to my graphics card being an ATI I needed to run in text mode (based off posts on these forums) then once I finally got everything under control and installed, it loads directly into Command Prompt (you folks call it GRUB right?) I can log in as root but I can't do anything this way.It won't even allow me to do things like accept the end user license agreement or create new users or see the GUI.
When I do System > Applications > Update System, it brings up a list of updates, and can tell me what each update is meant to fix (i.e. "fixes a bug in the flux capacitor so time travel works again (CVE-01234)"). How do I get similar info from the command line- I can't get it through yum, can I?
I'm experiencing a peculiar problem with Fedora 12. There is a ten-second delay when various command-line applications (e.g. ssh, wget) connect to remote machines for the first time. The delay is also seen when the remote machine name does not exist.Subsequent connections to the same remote machine are immediate.This isn't a DNS delay - the host and dig commands return immediately, for both existing and non-existant hostnames. It's not a reverse DNS lookup by the remote machine either: other Fedora 10 machines do not experience this delay and neither did my two Fedora 12 machines when they were running Fedora 10.
time this was something to do with nscd, the name service caching daemon. Stopping nscd changes the delay to five seconds, but subsequent connections are no longer immediate - there is again a 5 second delay. This implies that nscd is caching the names correctly.The delays are always precisely 10 seconds, or 5 seconds when nscd is not running. I have confirmed this with the time command. There appears to be no odd network traffic (tested with tcpdump) and nscd appears to be running normally. I've confirmed this with a Fedora 12 live CD as well - nscd is not started at boot, but once started, the machine behaves in exactly the way described above.
with that said i burned fedora 8, 10, and 11 checked the sha1 verified everything was fine i had originally installed fedora 8 on an old pc i had from windows XP without any problems messed with it some, upgraded to 10 again no problems. tired to update 11 got a message about ext3 not found ext4 not found, re installed 10 the loader loads up now i have a blank screen with a cursor it the left hand corner
again i had 10 installed fine prior to all this can any one point me in the right direction to solve this issue or am i way over my head trying to figure this stuff out. i have spent 3 days searching these forums.
i'm just not quite sure what i need to do. oh, i tried to install 8 again and it wouldn't take either. i think the 10 problem has something to do with the graphic driver it's a geforce 7400 nvidia and something to do with the grub, but like i said i get a blinking cursor and not quite sure how to access the grub or command line.
I've been working in a program in BASH and would like to measure its efficiency in different machines. Of course I am able to display the date at the beginning and at the end of its execution, but I'd rather use some sort of timer function to measure in seconds its speed. Is there any timer function available through command line?
I use F13. How can I control the volume of my desktop ssh'ing into it from my laptop?
I use the laptop like a remote control to control my desktop through vnc while watching movies, but changing volume through this setup is a bit too cumbersome and clumsy. I tried alsamixer but it behaves strangely and doesn't change volume.
I have a couple of backup scri ts. I use a rather cumbersome method to backup evolution. I finally realized I can backup evolution easily from its File Menu. Can I do this directly from the command line, so that I can use it in a script?
My USB ports are not easily accessible from where I use my PC, Sometimes, I eject or unmount some USB device, only to realize that I forgot to copy or delete some file. I don't want to get up, go to the CPU, unplug and replug the USB device, go back to my sit. I don't want to execute some boring mounting command as root just to mount this particular device. What I want is a fast command that just rescan my USB ports and mount everything where it should be, as if I have make the effort of standing up and unplugin and repluggin the USB device. Does this command exists
