Ubuntu :: Password Protect A Folder On A Flash Drive?

Sep 3, 2010

I have a folder on my flash drive where I keep sensitive info (important numbers, passwords, etc.) and would like to protect this info in the event that someone gets a hold of this drive.

I figured the best method was encryption so I started experimenting with gpg, but I encountered problems as mentioned here:


I still haven't found a solution so I'm looking into possible alternatives. As shown in the above thread, someone recommended using eCryptfs or an encfs directory. Before I spend anymore time researching this stuff, has anyone tried using these before? Do they work well and do you think these would suit my needs?

The only other alternative I can think is just compressing the folder into a password protected rar file. Would this work well or would I be leaving my data vulnerable?

ALSO, I would a prefer a solution that would still allow me to backup this folder using rsync. I like to keep and up-to-date backup of my entire flash drive by syncing it to another flash drive using rsync.

Ubuntu Servers :: Apache2 - Password Protect Directories With System User

Apr 12, 2011

I want to password protect say a subdirectory, or a subdomain via vhost, with a username/password, but use the systems users and passwords as logins -> I want go avoid any and all .htaccess... as everyone should be doing anyway How would I go about doing this? I know my way around the apache configs fairly well, so I'm not a total newb -> I now I can use .useraccess and .pwaccess but that's flat file driven, not based off of the systems users/passwords.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Can't Access External Usb Drive

May 18, 2010

I've got an USB-to-IDE hard disk drive enclosure to revive an old IDE harddrive. I installed the drive and connected it to my pc running opensuse 11.2. Unfortunately the drive wasn't recognised, so I couldn't access it. This is the output of dmesg:

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Unable To Use External DVD-RW Drive

Apr 14, 2010

I'm running openSUSE 11.1 32-bit and I'm trying to use my external USB DVD-RW drive. I've tried loading two 11.1 discs in the drive and both of them fail.After putting the dvd in the drive I mount with::mount/dev /scd0 /media/cdrom

and it comes back with:mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sr0, missing codepage or helper program, or other error.In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail or so.Second question is can I use this external USB DVD-RW drive to install linux from, or does it have to be an internal drive? If so is there anything special I need to do to get it to look at the drive during boot. I take it this is dependant on a BIOS setting. This is all assuming of course I can get my dvd's to read.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Automount Fails With External USB Drive

Feb 14, 2011

When I plug my USB drive in, the kernel sees it and I can mount it manually. However, it won't automount. I've done plenty of google searches but nothing I've tried has worked for 'GNOME, SUSE 11.3.' I am not sure if it is a permissions problem, configuration problem, a kernel automount, HID, or USB problem.

uname -a (stock SUSE desktop kernel):
Linux linux-hez9 #1 SMP PREEMPT 2010-12-13 11:13:53 +0100 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

Here is the output from /var/log/messages:
Feb 14 15:47:09 linux-hez9 kernel: [16258.620213] usb 1-1: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 6

OpenSUSE Hardware :: USB External Drive Works On Desktop?

Sep 14, 2011

So I've got a weird issue with my usb external drive. It's a generic enclosure in to which I've mounted a toshiba IDE drive. It appears as "Generic USB to IDE bridge".Said drive works fine on every machine I try to use it on, but NOT my laptop. Oh, it will appear in LSUSB, and in dmesg, (sometimes it appears, but the partitions do not, e.g. I see sdc, but not sdc1 and sdc2).

However, on any attempt to access it (it mounts fine too), Dolphin hangs (and so does most of KDE). I assume a disk sleep is the problem. Unplugging the drive resolves the hang. ages later, the drive will copy bits of data in small spurts, until it hangs for some more time. After a while, I see an ACHI/USB reset message in the system logs, and the drive resumes copying for some more time.

The drive is bus powered, but it doesn't matter if I use one/both USB connectors, and like I said, it works fine on my desktop, which also has SuSE 11.4 on it. Any ideas what's going on? Sorry if I left out some info, I wanted to get this out and let you folks stew over it while I'm running some errands.

OpenSUSE Install :: Using An External Drive As A Root Device?

Jan 6, 2010

I have a large external drive, which I connect to my laptop via a PCMCIA card - the machine is old and does not have USB 2.0 built in, so I use the PCMCIA card for that.

I am thinking of the following setup, and hope you can give me some tips on whether or not that would be a sound solution:

- designate a boot partition on the laptop's internal hard drive, which could store kernels

- make up a linux partition (or more than one) to use as root for any distribution on the external drive

- keep /home as separate partition on the external drive

My goal in mind is to be able to boot more than one Linux partition from the external drive. I can't make it through USB boot because the PCMCIA card is not recognized before a kernel module is loaded, and I can't use the internal USB 1.1 port for the external drive.

Do you think this is the way to go? Currently, I only have my /home partition mounted off the external drive.
