General :: Root Invisible At Session Menu

Feb 15, 2010

I was having an annoying problem with icons on my KDE desktop moving out of place, even if the icons were locked. I blamed KDE, but I don't have the knowledge or experience to guess what part of KDE was the problem, so I reinstalled most or all of KDE. That did indeed solve the problem, but it caused two minor new "problems." Both I can ignore, but one I should probably fix. One, the MEPIS splash screen was replaced by a Debian splash screen. Two, on the session menu, root became invisible so I can no longer select it with the mouse; I can only type it in (which I don't mind doing).

General :: Fedora 15 Grub2 Graphical Menu "Invisible" Yet There?

Aug 11, 2011

I have Fedora 15 x64 with Gnome-shell installed on a Toshiba Satelite L505 Laptop alongside Windows 7, and Ubuntu 11.04. Fedora was the last installation so it currently has the controls of the grub installation which is what I was going for. I upgraded to Grub2 (1.98 and then some). I did some hunting and found this guide: followed the instructions to the T (or atleast I thought I did) for writing and installing the demo theme on "Fedora 14" which worked without errors on 15.When I rebooted I got:Grub yadayadafor about 1.5 seconds and then the background image for the theme showed up but no menu! I tried shift & Esc, nothing. I pressed enter and it booted fedora 15. this is where i got my first bright idea (First i should mention that the loading box images showed up after i hit enter but still no text). I rebooted again (knowing the order of what the grub menu would be if it were visible) and this time i hit the down arrow 5 times then hit enter, sure enough, and it booted windows. So I can interact with the menu but not "see" it.

Debian Multimedia :: Second X Session Has No Menu Items?

Sep 20, 2015

When I start a second X session using startx --:1, (as either my normal user or root), it goes straight into and LXDE session (Debian's default, I think). Once LXDE is started, there is no applications menu (only run and logout). How do I get it to show the full application menu that my regular user can see when I log in from GDM3 normally?

Ubuntu :: Remove A Menu Item From The Indicator Applet Session?

Apr 6, 2010

The indicator applet session gnome-panel applet (the one that lets you change your status for empathy/pidgin, logout, switch user, etc.) has the suspend and hibernate options. My computer will not suspend or hibernate properly (every time I try to wake it up, the hard drive will work for about 4 minutes and the screen will stay blank so I have to restart) and I would like to remove those items from the menu. I would just like to know if there is a way to remove the hibernate and suspend items in the indicator applet session menu. I've already tried browsing around gconf-editor to no avail. If it is not possible, let me know

Debian Multimedia :: How To Log Into X Session As Root Using GDM3

Sep 20, 2015

To use most of my Kali applications, I want to be able to log into an X session as root. I know it is generally a bad idea and I don't want to do it as a rule, but it is useful for penetration testing (e.g. nmap and its GUI don't have most of the useful options when run as a regular user).

So how do I get GDM3 to allow me to log in as root? Currently, if I type in the user name "root" and log in, it just takes me back to GDM3. Could it work to add root to my user group (I really don't want to add all kinds of security holes)?

OpenSUSE Install :: Kill The Entire Session (as Root) For A User?

May 5, 2010

I've got a somewhat anemic box, resource-wise, set up in the office where any authorized user plus a guest account can log on. Guest is tightly restricted, but we get a lot of people passing through who need one-time or occasional access - this isn't the big problem. What's causing me problems is that a user will log in, walk away or go to the john and the screen locks. Next user (or this one comes back) and winds up doing another login. At the end of a week or so, I may have a couple of dozen sessions listed when I ask for "users". Since some of these session contain open applications they eat up an awful lot of a marginal amount of available memory. How do I kill the entire session (as root) for a user? Gotta be simple but it's not obvious to me.

Ubuntu :: Run Menu Programs As Root By Default?

Mar 1, 2011

In the applications menu I would like to always run certain programs as root. For instance Wireshark; I'll never want to run that as a regular user I'll always want to be root. Is there a way to set it up so that when I click it in the menu I'm prompted for my password and it will automatically run as root? (Much like in windows you can right click and check the box that says always run as administrator.)

OpenSUSE Install :: GRUB Root In Menu.lst After Upgrade To 11.3 ?

Jul 19, 2010

Yesterday I've updated my system from 11.2 to 11.3, fllowing the guide at SDB:System upgrade - openSUSE . Everything went fine (except an error during the installation of batik) but after reboot I got a grub error:

And I couldn't boot

After a CD boot, because I didn't want to try the OpenSUSE 11.2 entry, I saw that the entry for OpenSUSE 11.3 was wrong, see below the entries for 11.3 and 11.2:


And of course it worked and my updated system works fine

Programming :: Hashing The Components Of An Tcp Session To Assign/locate The Session In A Hash Table Bucket?

Nov 10, 2010

I have a very bad attempt at hashing the components of an tcp session to assign/locate the session in a hash table bucket. I am pretty sure that it has a very high collision rate and when there are a very large number of tcp sessions my application is having to search a long linked list to find the session within the bucket.

All the hashing functions I have found take a single string input where I need to input several integers and hash them into a single result. My guess is that any real hashing function is going to produce better results than what I am currently doing.
