General :: Using Route Command With A Non Root Process?

Sep 15, 2010

I use the system command route from a process (using the system() call). For security reasons the process does not have root privilege and for some reason I cannot use ioctl() either. I tried to set the capabilities of the process to NET_ADMIN and SYS_ADMIN but the route command still failed due to insufficient permissions.

What are the capabilities that I need to set for route to be successful?

General :: Command To Find Parent And Child Process?

Apr 21, 2011

I have a script that calls other scripts/commands which may or may not spawn other process. From my understanding, when I do a ps -ef, the highest numbered process ID is supposed to be the parent ID of all the other related child processes, is this correct? In most or all circumstances, I do a ps -ef | grep <processid> of my script and anything that spawns off that process IDs I assumed are the child processes of my script. If I want to terminate my script and all other child processes, then I kill the parent ID which is the highest numbered PID and this will subsequently kill all other child process IDs, is this correct?

Now, my question is whether there is any quick way of showing what are the child processes of a parent ID instead of what am currently doing now which is visually checking which one is the parent ID and "assuming" that the highest numbered PID is the parent ID of all the other processes. Below is a sample output of running ps -ef | grep exp | grep -v grep. I assume from the output below that the parent process/ID is PID 11322, is that correct?


oracle 11154 11153 0 21:20 ? 00:00:00 /bin/sh -c (. ~oracle/.profile; /bin/ksh /usr/local/oracle/scripts/expdp_o
oracle 11155 11154 0 21:20 ? 00:00:00 /bin/sh -c (. ~oracle/.profile; /bin/ksh /usr/local/oracle/scripts/expdp_o
oracle 11190 11155 0 21:20 ? 00:00:00 /bin/ksh /usr/local/oracle/scripts/expdp_schema.ksh dev01

General :: Specify Password For Sudo Command When Running Bg Process?

Jun 23, 2010

I'd like to start a background job using the sudo command and route its output to a file. This presents a problem because the prompt for the password doesn't work properly. It looks something like this when I try it:

Mac:server user$ sudo php crossdomain_server.php > data/crosscomain_output.txt &
[3] 30303
Mac:server user$ Password:
[3]+ Stopped sudo php crossdomain_server.php > data/crosscomain_output.txt
Mac:server user$

Basically I'm not properly prompted for the password and as soon as I type anything in my background job fails because it didn't receive the password. Is there any way to execute a sudo command by supplying the password on the same line as the command?

Fisrt of all, I am running some program on my slackware in background (using standard method - &). I need to make a script, which allows sending command to this process on my machine from another one. Furthermore this program have to be logged out (standard output f.e. ./myprogram > log.out.txt).It might be a separate Program A which runs my Program B but it cannot be screen, because it is not working like I'd like to and it cannot be java, because it's slow and working not the best so to speak

General :: Function Having Background Process Inside Command Substitution

Oct 5, 2010

The first call to "somefunction" works as expected. The function prints "endfunction" and a process in background sleeps 30 seconds. In the second call I thought it should work in the same way, but the script sleeps 30 seconds before it prints "endfunction".Does someone know the reason of this behavior? Is there another way to do a command substitution of a function that has a background process without have to waiting for that process?

Software :: All Memory Being Consumed By Only A Few Processes?

Jan 25, 2010

I recently built a new server, running 64 bit Slackware 13.0 with the following specs:

MSI 785GTM-E45
AMD Phenom II X2 550
Onboard video from AMD 785G chipset
2x 80GB IDE system drives using software RAID with 2GB swap partition

I only include these because I'm not convinced my problem is not hardware related at some level. Basically, when I first start up the system, the memory usage is anywhere from 60 to 200MB. Then it starts to gradually climb until there is only 12-15MB free. This can take anywhere from a few hours to a few days.

The only thing I really use this for is to serve Samba shares and the occasional SSH login. I've set up Samba shares to be accessed by my Windows machines as well as a Mac. Initially I just explored the network if I wanted to see the share from these machines, but that was too slow and unreliable (the server would not always show up in Windows), so now I automatically mount the share as a network drive at startup (from Windows). So I don't know if this would have anything to do with the steadily increasing memory usage. These systems are not on/connected all the time, but the memory usage seems to rise anyway.

When I run top, it reports that nearly all of the physical memory has been consumed (after a while of uptime), but none of the swap space has even been touched. This is a typical output of the first several lines, sorted by swap size:


top - 07:45:48 up 2 days, 12:33, 2 users, load average: 0.00, 0.00, 0.00
Tasks: 105 total, 1 running, 104 sleeping, 0 stopped, 0 zombie
Cpu(s): 0.0%us, 0.2%sy, 0.0%ni, 99.8%id, 0.0%wa, 0.0%hi, 0.0%si, 0.0%st


I can't be sure, but I believe the message just repeated itself before this part. MS-7549 is one of the components of the mainboard (MSI), maybe the northbridge or something (it seems to be associated with more than one model), so I thought for sure this meant a hardware problem, maybe with the storage controller or memory. But Memtest86 passes for more than a day without any errors, and I loaded Windows on one of the disks and ran it as hard as I could with prime95 and nothing so much as flinched. So I've got to think this is some kind of issue with linux and/or how it is handling my hardware configuration.

Fedora Installation :: F13 Install Consumed Entire HD?

May 28, 2010

I had no problems installing the F13 DVD, but when I chose to install it across a 160 GB and 250 GB hard drives, it happily used both of them for the system and left me 40 GB of storage to play with.... at least I think that is what happened. I kind of had the opposite in mind. I know I could have installed it on one and used the other drive for a separate storage location, but for me, it's just easier to have one big storage/system volume and not have to worry about paths and /dev/sdb/images stuff

AFAIK,applications installation are distributed across various directories in Linux(man pages,executable files,etc..)and the very close i can get is to run 'whereis' command which gives me all the paths where the application's files are stored.
Do i have to manually go to each and every such paths and check their sizes??

CentOS 5 Hardware :: Installation - Centos 5.2 On HP Rp5700 Desktop \ Begins The Boot Process Up To Discovering The PCI Stuff And Just Locks Up, No Response?

Mar 28, 2009

I am trying to install CentOS 5.2 on an HP rp5700 desktop unit. These units were originally sold as a Point of Sales unit I believe, but HP also markets it as a high life cycle server for SMB market.I tried to load CentOS on this unit via CD (created from downloaded ISO of course). It presents the initial CentOS banner page and waits for the obligatory "enter" to continue. It begins the boot process up to discovering the PCI stuff and just locks up, no response. I have to power down to restart.Since this does not even get to the point of installing. I am at a loss what to do next. Has anyone had a similar issue with other PCs.The boot stops at the lineACPI: PCI Root Bridge [PCI0] (0000:00)

General :: Sending Signal From Child Process To Parent Process?

Sep 8, 2010


#include <stdio.h>
#include <unistd.h>
#include <signal.h>


Description of what the code does or what i intended to do:

1. Created a child process from parent process using 'fork()'

2. Sent a signal 'SIGALRM' from child process to parent process using 'sigqueue' function.

(The Third parameter of 'siqueue' function contains the message (message msg) which the child process wants to send to the parent process.'msg' is a stucture instance containing a) pid of child and b) string) 5. Print the 'msg' sent by child process inside the signal handler function 'sig_action_function' of the parent process I am getting some junk value when this line is executed



I expected to get the pid of child process, which the child process sent to parent process through the signal.
