General :: Emergency Mode Can Mount HDD With FS Error / Not In Rescue Or Single User-mode

Dec 1, 2010

My linux workstation recently crashed. After rebooting, Linux (Red Hat 5.3) will not boot properly and automatically went into emergency mode or recovery mode i think. I can still see my /home/user/ and all the files inside.I boot from CD to rescue mode and tried mounting read-only the /dev/sd5 which contains the files in the crashed hard disk to try to copy out my files but mounting was unsuccessful (invalid argument). I checked the filesystem type using fsck -N /dev/sda5 and shows it to ext2. i tried to mount another known working hdd and was successful.

My question is why in emergency mode, the crashed hdd is able to be mounted automatically as read-only but cannot be done in rescue mode thru a bootable CD?Is there any special mount options used in emergency mode?I also cannot copy out in emergency mode booting from the crashed hard disk as everything is read only.

General :: How Many "blocks Reserved For The Super User"

Jun 1, 2010

When formatting an ext3 partition, the default -m option is 5 (5%). Two things I always wanted to know but were afraid to ask:

1) Isn't 5% way too much for the size of most hard disks nowadays?

2) Is that number or anything greater than 0 really necessary in ALL file systems? For example, is it necessary in a /home partition or any partition that contains no OS, just storage data?

Ubuntu :: Unable To Log In As A Super User?

Apr 22, 2010

Recently I installed Ubuntu using WUBI. During installation it asked for a user name and password which I filled in. That user name and password are the same that I now use to log into ubuntu. But now I am unable to log into super user using the terminal. When I try to log in to the super user account it says that the password is wrong. During the whole installation process only once did wubi ask me to enter password and I am using the same password. My windows user name and password are the same as what I entered during installation.

I have a very stupid case, I have to use a domain user to install one software in RHL4.8, but this software need a super-user permission but not root.
So I need a domain user who has super-user permission.
Not use su, sudo.
If I use su or sudo ,the software will be installed under root. The requirement is the software must be installed under a domain user.
How can I do?

Ubuntu :: How Is Super User In Authentication Prompt Determined

May 3, 2010

How is the super user determined for the dialog box that pops up when trying to perform administrative tasks, "An application is attempting to perform an action that requires privileges. Authentication as the super user is required to perform this action."? Does it always ask for the password of the default user created during the OS install, or should it prompt for the current user's password if that person is an administrator?I use likewise-open for windows domain authentication, so I typically log in as a windows user that likewise-open has added to the list of users on this system. I have given this user sudo access and added the user to all the same groups as the default user, yet whenever I perform an administrative task in gnome I am prompted for the password of the default user. Is this normal? It seems like the behavior would be to ask for the current user's password if that user is an administrator, and if so what determines that the current user is an administrator?

Ubuntu :: Firefox Plugins Only Work For Super User?

May 12, 2010

I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 minimal with Openbox; far from a standard install but nearly everything works the way it should.

The problem appears quite simple:

Firefox does not recognise installed plugins (i.e, Flash) when running as the standard user; if I run the command 'sudo firefox' however, Firefox loads in plugins just as it should.

I've checked about:plugins in both instances and this has confirmed what is stated above. The list is populated when running as the super user, and empty when running as standard.

Debian :: Root / Super User Access On KDE Version

Mar 16, 2009

After a week of working with Debian, I decided to install the KDE3 version straight from an NetInstall CD. This fixed some issues for me as well as made networking and folder sharring a snap! But now its time to add all the extra packages I need.

Here's the problem: Using any kind of Package Manager yields the same results:
E: Could not get lock /var/lib/dpkg/lock - open (11 Resource temporarily unavailable)
E: Unable to lock the administration directory (var/lib/dpkg/), in another process using it?
RESULT=100

I've tried apt-get from root command line and the KPackage Manager that comes with KDE3 with same results. I have only one user that was created during Debian install. I'm having some other problems, from what I've seen on the net, they all seem to point to not having proper Super User access (I'm guessing here). What could cause this error? AND/OR How do I make sure I have top level access to the configure the system? (I tried logging in as "root", but the login errored out saying that this was not allowed).

Ubuntu :: Buttons References - Use The <Super>ButtonX (<Super>Button1 For The Enabled Compiz Screenshot Plugin)?

Jun 5, 2011

how to use the <Super>ButtonX (<Super>Button1 for example for the enabled Compiz Screenshot plugin)? I also notice there is configurable buttons 1 throught 20 under the various options. At first I thought the ButtonX was a mouse button. Maybe it is with some anticipation of there being eventually being a possible 20 buttons on the mouse. I know the Super key is the Key with the Windows logo on it. But I don't know what to do to get the needed Super Key / Button combination. After having enabled Compiz's Screenshot plugin by its default, I don't get an image after hitting any of the Super key and mouse button combinations. I'm running Ubuntu 11.04.

General :: User Application Run Entirely In Kernel-mode?

Dec 17, 2009

I have a question regarding application/process execution and it's the following:

Is it possible a user application (which will regularly be executed at user-space) to be re-written as a kernel-module to allow the entire execution to be under kernel-mode (i.e. no system calls should be needed)? I am not saying that this is the right thing to do; I am just asking if it's doable.

General :: Can Only Login To Single User Mode

Mar 22, 2010

I'm running debian lenny. Suddenly when I rebooted my system I was unable to login. I type root and the password and it tells me the login is incorrect.If I boot into single user mode, it accepts the password just fine. Looking in the /etc/shadow file, it appears to be fine as well.Running passwd to set a new password sets a new password just fine, i can login to single user mode with the new password, however, I cannot login at a higher runlevel with the password.

If I delete a password in the /etc/shadow file, then try to login as that user, it simply says "Login Incorrect" without even asking for a password.

Slackware :: KDE4.4.5 Crashes When Starting Language Settings In Systemsettings?

Dec 3, 2010

I am trying to switch to KDE4.4.5 on my main machine. I installed the KDE packages and also the german language file. Everything works fine except the language settings. When I try to start it crash and a KDE crash dialog opens that gives this "developer information":

Code:

Application: System Settings (systemsettings), signal: Segmentation fault
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/share/gdb/auto-load/usr/lib/libgobject-2.0.so.0.2200.5-gdb.py", line 9, in <module>
from gobject import register

[code].....

It works on my netbook. I run on both machines Slackware 13.1. The only difference I can think of is that KDE was pre-installed on my netbook and I just upgraded it. On my main machine I installed all packages except the packages of kde and kdei.
