OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Ipod At Times Has Only Root Privileges?

Jun 7, 2010

Every once in a while when I plug my ipod (160gb 5 generation) in, it gets mounted as root.

If I eject and restart the ipod, the next time I plug it in, it is mounted as my normal user.

OpenSUSE Network :: Starting Apache As A User With Root Privileges?

Jul 17, 2010

I have written a simple perl program to add a command to iptables. Here is my code :

Code:
#! /usr/bin/perl
print "Content-type: text/html
";
system("iptables -A FORWARD -s 192.168.0.2 -j DROP");

I put this file in cgi-bin folder of Apache server. Here is my problem : when I run this file with shell as root user it makes change to iptables, but when I use my browser to run this file, it doesn't make any change. I'm sure this is because Apache doesn't have permission to manipulate iptables. How can I start Apache as a user with root privileges ?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Mounting IPod Touch With Root Access?

Sep 30, 2010

How can I mount an iPod touch in Ubuntu with access to the root and not only the media folder?

I tried to do things with ifuse and it didn't work or I didn't understand.

I succeeded to mount my iPod with ifuse without root access in /home/user/iPod but now I would like to delete it but I don't know how.

So how can I mount my iPod touch with root access (something with afc2) and to delete the unwanted one that I made ifuse?

OpenSUSE Hardware :: IPod Automatically Mounted But Can Only Write As Root?

Jan 30, 2010

I don't know why but every time I plug my iPod it gets mounted automatically as root and therefore I can't write anything in it. I mentioned this issue on the #suse irc channel posting mount output:

eugenio@openSUSE:~> mount
/dev/sda7 on / type ext4 (rw,acl,user_xattr)
proc on /proc type proc (rw)
sysfs on /sys type sysfs (rw)
debugfs on /sys/kernel/debug type debugfs (rw)

[Code]....

I read some posts about editing the fstab file but I'm not really sure how to do this (if this is the solution) and I believe this could have worked on earlier versions (where HAL was used) Is there anything I can do to make opensuse mount my ipod automatically with full access to normal users?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Connect 2nd Gen Ipod To Xubuntu And Import Music Collection Onto The Ipod?

Aug 20, 2010

I am trying to connect my 2nd Gen Ipod to Xubuntu and import my music collection onto the Ipod. I am having real problems with this. Rhythm Box does not recognise the Ipod with the plug-in, I have tried Amarok, but each time I tried to open it, it just crashed, tried sending a bug report but that did not want to work. I have also tried Exaile with the Ipod plug-in but when you go to the device manager you can click on the Ipod but nothing happens. I have tried looking at the Exaile forums but this seems to be a problem for others as well. The Ipod mounts ok, now a bit stuck.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Get Ipod Touch Working With The Gtkpod Ipod Manager?

Jan 13, 2010

Its a dell e510 with about a gig of ram. I'm struggling to get my ipod touch working with the gtkpod ipod manager. At this point my ipod shows on my desktop when i connect it via usb. I cannot set up the repository for it in gtkpod because i dont know the location its mounting to. if its mounting at all. so my question is. how can i tell where my ipod is being mounted? I dont have a clue what to look for in the terminal results for "df -a"

But this is what i get:

Code:
Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda1 152357444 65577992 79040140 46% /
proc 0 0 0 - /proc
none 0 0 0 - /sys

[Code]...

Edit : Itouch = first generation 8gb Edit 2: I would like to create a sticky thread that helps new users answer questions about ipods. Will a moderator please let me know what i should include in their opinion? ex. using wine to run itunes, gtkpod and how to set it up, using mm players like banshee and songbird... what version of ubuntu works best with the ipods.

Debian :: How To Sign In Or Install For Root Privileges

Feb 28, 2015

I used Zorin, Ubuntu, and Kubuntu. Even though Kubuntu was my favorite because of the KDE platform, it still didn't have what I was looking for. With Debian, the KDE platform works great, it uses KDM instead of LightDM, (you can do more with that), and the choices of software for setting it up as a server is great. The problem I having right now is with the root privileges. With the other Debian based systems I used, root privileges was not a problem. When I signed in, it was with my user name and my root password.

Every time I did updates or installed software, it ask me for authentication which is my root password. And if I had to use su or sudo commands in the terminal it ask for my password. I had no problem with that. I'm just as big with security as any Unix based system users. And Linux has that. That's one of the big reasons I left Microsoft Windows for Linux. There was times when I had to have full root privileges for just a short time, and my favorite command was sudo nautilus. This was perfect.

For example, sometimes I had to get in to the opt folder for a brief moment to past a web page in it. Opt is a root folder. It can be opened with out a root privilege, but you just can't past files to it. Sudo nautilus was perfect for this because it is a temporary root privilege. Close the terminal and the root privilege session ends. This is great. You don't want root privileges all the time you're log in. That can be dangerous because it's a high security risk.

With Debian, I have not been able to get any root privileges. And without root privileges, I can't load much needed software, can't access my second hard drive, matter of fact, the second hard drive doesn't even show up. I can't really do much of anything. Is there something I can do when I am installing Debian to fix this or how do I get the root privileges I need?

Software :: Creating A Tmpfs Without Root Privileges?

Mar 14, 2010

I've grown rather fond lately of creating tmpfs here and there to speed up various activities. (I think it is awesome that RAM can be mounted to a directory!) The downside though, is that this requires root privileges. I don't really like this because then I either have to go root each time I want a tmpfs, or I have to add a new line to fstab each time I want a tmpfs in some new, odd place. (This becomes doubly weird when the odd place is somewhere like inside my personal home directory.) Is there some other utility out there that can mount RAM as a filesystem, but allow mounting to be done without root privileges? It seems like this shouldn't be an issue, since a normal user has the ability to create and manipulate directories as well as borrow as much RAM as he wants.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Amarok Does Not Import All Songs From IPod?

Jun 26, 2010

I connect my iPod to the computer, open Amarok, and select the "Copy To -- Local Collection" option. I have over 2,000 songs on my iPod, but only 638 are imported. There is no rhyme or reason to which songs are imported and which are not.

Individually selecting the unimported songs and attempting to copy them is unsuccessful. I have followed the multimedia installation guide to the letter with success.
