General :: Modify The /etc/host File - Change Directory Fails?

Feb 1, 2010

I am in the process of setting up an Asterisk server with Broadvoice services. I am having issues with making outbound calls and Broadvoice suggests I modify the /etc/hosts file in order to add their proxy server IP address and name. I login to my server as root and get the following command line header

[root@root tmp]#

I entered cd thinking this is what I need to change directory but fails. What is the command I need to enter in order to get to the /etc/host file so I can change it? How do I confirm an /etc/host file even exists?

General :: Mkdir Fails - Even With -p - No Such File Or Directory

May 30, 2010

The setup ( although dont trust anything I say ):

I'm working on an embedded system device using a NFS mounted rootfs ( as shared by my host ) , but I store large video content directly on the device's hdd in /data.

Device's hdd partition /dev/sda3 is ext3 fs mounted at /tmp/mnt/diska3 (rw), then I have a script create dirs like /tmp/mnt/diska3/data and /tmp/mnt/diska3/data/incoming, then symlink :

ln -s /tmp/mnt/diska3/data /data so that the /data appears like any other directory.

I can see /tmp/mnt/diska3/data/incoming. I did chmod -R a+w tmp to rule out permissions.

Running a subsequent script calls mkdir: mkdir -p /data/incoming/gui

BUT fails: mkdir: cannot create directory '/data/': No such file or directory

Fedora Servers :: Can't Access Or Modify File Unless Directory Mode Is 777 And Files Are 666

Nov 8, 2010

I have a multi user system for my roommates and myself that has separate folders for each of us. I've got user authentication working with samba, but unless I set every file and folder readable/writeable by all users, I can't browse it or edit the files.This isn't ideal as the shares are open to other users access, so I'm hoping there's a way to keep folders at 750 and files at 660 while allowing samba users to browse, delete and edit.Also, the samba share is actually a mounted NFS share from another server. Both the NFS server and the Samba server have the same users/uid's. When a file is created from a Windows host via the Samba client, the NFS server's permissions do show that the correct user owns the files, but since the files aren't mode 666 but 640 I can't edit or delete the file.

Red Hat / Fedora :: Cannot Modify Grub Menu File - Need To Change Boot Order

Mar 3, 2009

I recently installed a 64-bit version of centOS 5 alongside a 32-bit version, which I use. Turns out the 64-bit version absolutely will not boot and I'm stuck with it as my default boot option. Since the grub being used resides on the 64-bit half, I cant edit the menu file but I know theres a way to do this without it, through grub itself. I have about 29 render nodes now with this problem, and whenever they need to be rebooted I have to hook a monitor up to each one and hold its hand through the boot process. How to change the grub menu through grub itself, basically just change the default boot option and then have it stay that way?

I'm aware of the fact that I need to use visudo and how to use the vi editor. I've Googled this topic and while I've found a number of pages on the topic, I never see many examples.

General :: Modify A File Like /etc/gdm/custom.conf From The Shell Or A Script?

Jun 22, 2010

I want to modify a file like /etc/gdm/custom.conf from the shell or a script.

# GDM configuration storage

But the idea is that I can add a line to a section and it check if the section is defined, (add the definition if not), the property is defined, let it undefine (erase the line), (and delete the section header if there is no property defined), etc...

I didn't find anything except gconftool-2 but it do not explain how to modify other files. (there is a shema file there).

there isn't a program/script to achieve this, but can easyly be made for every config file, If someone do something like that, with a little database of which markup use each file, it could become really popular.

Fedora :: BASH :: Change File Stat In Sub Directory?

Oct 23, 2010

So I have created a Bash script with the intent of the program to change the names of the files in a folder's subdirectory.The code recognises the individual subdirectories, then is able to enter into one and list the files individually, but when it tries to change their information it says;' cannot stat ' : ' No such file or directory 'As if it is looking in the directory that contains the Bash script, not its subdirectory.It is essentially saying, I see a file here called FILE but sorry, I can't change FILE because FILE doesn't exist. kweh?Is this something outside the capabilities of Bash? Am I asking too much of it? Can Bash only manipulate files that are in the same folder as the script?

Installation :: Change The Boot Partition - Error: Bad File Or Directory Type?

Jan 31, 2010

I have presently a (working) boot dedicated partition, where grub stuff resides, but I want to change it to a common "/boot" folder in the root partition (in a different hdd). For some reason I can't do it. The first thing I did was to copy all the things that are in the boot partition to a boot folder on the root partition. After that, I tried: grub-install /dev/hdc1 (which is odd but it's where the root partition actually is)

When I did it from the linux I have installed on my hdd, it actually did something, I don't remember all the output (except that there was something about it not being able to access hda, which is oddly the dvdrom), but it didn't work. From a live CD, the same command (grub-install /dev/hdc1) is answered with: Could not find device for /boot: Not found or not a block device. From grub's own prompt, the things are more or less the same. First of all, it does not find stage1, even though I did copy the content from the boot partition to a boot folder in the root partition.

I tried to proceed, anyway, with root (hd1,0) and setup (hd1,0) (which is /dev/hdc1, according with the "geometry" info given by grub). "Root" is accepted, but "setup" is answered with: Checking if "/boot/grub/stage1" exists... no Checking if "/grub/stage1" exists... no Error 2: Bad file or directory type But the files are there. I can't "cat" the menu.lst from grub though, unlike with the actual working boot partition. The same error message. From the terminal, however, it's all there. I tried with /dev/hdc1 both mounted and unmounted, the same message. So, basically I have two questions, I guess:

1 - can I really do this sort of thing running a linux installed on a hdd, rather than a live cd, or is the live cd preferable for some reason?

2 - what am I missing?

(A note that may worth making is that I'm using the soon-to-be deprecated grub version, 0.9 or something, not grub2. I think it shouldn't be a problem since I've installed the system with the old version to begin with, but that may be irrelevant, I don't really know)

Server :: Apache Does Not Have Permission To Modify Files In User Directory - SVN

Mar 30, 2010

I recently started using SVN with Apache for my web development, although I find it really annoying that I have to issue two SVN commands (one local, one remote) to update my web site. I have been looking into SVN post-commit hooks to solve this problem. The only problem is that apache does not have permission to modify files in my user directory... So here is how everything is setup. I am running Slackware 13 full install. There have been no installations overriding any of the default installs.
