OpenSUSE Install :: 11 Account Lock Out After 'X' Attempts

Jun 23, 2010

OK, I'm not really a newbie, but I definitely no expert either.I've been surfing the web trying to find a good tutorial on locking out users after three failed logon attempts.At present I've reset everything in the /etc/pam.d directory back to the default state. This sets up all my password requirements and this works. Now I need to crack getting the account to lockout after three failed attempts. Let me know what files you need to see in the pam.d directory and I'll paste them in.

Security :: Account Lock After Failed Login Attempts

May 25, 2010

I'm trying to lock an account after a number of failed login attempts in a RHEL5.

This is the relevant configuration in /etc/pam.d/system-auth

In the logs I can see how the count of failed logins increase and exceeds my deny option but the account isn't locked

Do I need any other option in the PAM file? Is there any other way to lock an account?

Ubuntu Security :: Set Automatically Log In To A Specific User Account And At The Same Time Lock The Screen?

Jul 6, 2011

Is there a way to set Linux to automatically log in to a specific user account and at the same time lock the screen? I want to save time and trigger various software that always should start up on boot, while leaving the computer unattended during startup (extra important and practical for remote control boots), by enforcing a 'screen lock' so that no-one can see what happens behind the login screen without entering the login credentials.

OpenSUSE Install :: Will Not Authenticate After Screensaver Lock Out

Oct 1, 2010

I've just installed 11.1 and so far things seem to work OK. When I left the machine the screen saver kicked in and wouldn't let meback on with my password I chose during installation (and the only password I chose!) Re-booting the machine sorted the problem...until next time! I have now disabled the lock out for the screen saver so things ought to work now, but why did it do this? New with openSuse!

OpenSUSE Install :: Unable To Allocate And Lock Memory?

Jan 20, 2010

On my windows console, i have installed sun virtualbox. I only have 768MB ram and so i downloaded a trial version of eboostr. I thought it would work, but when i tried an install of 11.2, also, i tried a debian install, it did the same thing, it froze up in the middle of the install with the error Code: unable to allocate and lock memory. I guess that eboostr doesn't work, but is there a way to use a flash drive as ram in virtual box?

OpenSUSE Install :: Unable To Login With Domain Account

Apr 14, 2010

I planned to use Squid on my W2k3 network, because I'm tired of ISA2k6.it's a factory in itself. So, I just installed a VM with OpenSuse 11.2 and joined it to my AD W2k3 domain. After correcting the clock problems, everything is running fine except a strange feature that I was not able to solve.After a reboot, I'm not able to login with a domain account. I enter the username/password, choose the domain then it the input fields become grey for 1-2 seconds then the password field is reset and nothing happens.The most strange part comes when you logon with the local root account. You login as root, then logoff and login with any domain account : works like a charm..

OpenSUSE Install :: User Account Refuses Keyboard Input?

Dec 18, 2009

openSuse v11.1
Linux 2.6.27.39-0.2-default x86_64
VirtualBox v3.1.0

One user account completely ignores all keyboard input. No other account demonstrates this bizarre behavior. The faulty account has had occasional keyboard difficulty but it has always been related to the Virtual Machines (VirtualBox); the hosting account always functioned correctly.

Then the ban on keyboard input. Poof! "Keyboard? What keyboard? I don't see no stinking keyboard!"

It is not the physical keyboard. Three different hardware exhibit the same fault. It is not the motherboard; two mb's show the same fault. It is only that one account. And I even took the Windows route of re-installing the OS (what a waste of time that was).

If something changed, I am not aware of it (although something must have).

OpenSUSE Install :: Cannot Log In To Any User Account Including Root After Logging Out In 11.4

Apr 17, 2011

My install of 11.4 has been running perfectly for for several weeks now. But- (always a but) today it started acting up. I cannot log in to any user account including Root after logging out. After a cold boot I can log in again anywhere but after logging out I have to reboot again then I can get back in to any account once. After logging out any attempted log in causes the splash screen to blank for a few seconds and then it comes back with the previous successful user name log in but typing in the password blanks the screen a few seconds again. Clicking on a user account also blanks the screen a few seconds and then it again comes back with the previous log in users name.

OpenSUSE Install :: Nedit Editor On Account On A Web Hosting Server?

OpenSUSE Install :: Seamless Mount Of Encrypted Disks And New Session Creation After Each Screen Lock?

Sep 8, 2011

I installed openSUSE 11.4 on HP elitebook 2560p few days ago (using KDE live CD). In general system is working fine, but steel I cannot resolve couple of really annoying issues: 1. I've created encrypted partitions for swap and home during OS installation. As result the system keep asking for passwords for each of encrypted partitions before show login screen. That leads to situation when I have to type 3 passwords during each boot/reboot. I was using the same configuration (swap and home were encrypted) on Ubuntu 11.04 and there both encrypted partitions were mount automatically with no password typing after login to the system. Could you please tell how I can configure the same behavior on openSUSE 11.4 ?

2. I've enabled auto screen lock after 5 mins being inactive. As result when I going back to laptop and to unlock the screen the system shows login screen (default login screen with user selection). But when user and password filled in I click login it creates entire new KDE session. Therefore all staff that was open before screen lock is gone. However old session is still in the system (it appears in output from 'w' command).

Ubuntu :: 20 Failed Attempts (literally) To Install Or Fix?

Mar 13, 2010

I have tried and tried to get Ubuntu up and running again after a fatal crash. Unknown reason. I have burned several copies of Karmic and Jaunty, but the only one that will come up is an old copy of Jaunty Live CD. Chksum have matched on the disks and the disk integrity (the last time came up with 1 error, but it did not say where. I have used SystemRescue64, Rescue-remix for Karmic, MHDD, Ultimate boot disk, and have reformated and partitioned my 640GB drive. One partition is formated to EXT3 and the other is unallocated. Both testdisk and memtest show positive. No disk will complete a permanent install. At least one error shuts it down even after fixing broken packages and sometimes there are 3or 4 errors msgs. Last night the error was something in Open Office, I don't recall more than that. Here are the errors I picked out of todays logfiles. They are prety much in order as posted in the various logs:
