OpenSUSE :: Found Weird File In System Possibly Hacked?

Sep 13, 2010

for a while I?ve seen hundreds of attempts via ssh against my system. They finally stop and this could mean only two things my security measures are working "NOT" or they actually got in. In any case browsing around my system for suspicious changes I found a file"agent.4015" on my tmp folder. This file denies read privileges to root and I?m afraid to chmod until I know for sure what it is.

Fedora :: Weird Hard Drive / File System Permissions

Nov 29, 2009

I've been installing/tweaking F12, and I've found something that I can't say I've ever seen or expected to find before: the contents of my ~/Documents folder has lost its permissions and ownership info. I restored it from a backup last night/this morning, and I've rebooted a few times since then. Other folders from the backup are OK, just Documents.I don't know what my options are. I could try to blow it away and restore it, but that doesn't answer what caused it. If there's a "relabel" or something, that might help... though I've never had to do it before. Could it be that after these two-and-some-change years, my hard drive is giving out? Good thing I have a recent backup... but it'd be a shame to lose all my work getting F12 to work again.

OpenSUSE Install :: Recent Update Of Os11.3 Left System With Boot Failure / File Not Found

Nov 4, 2010

Toshiba notebook is set up to triple boot win7, mepis 8.5 and os 11.3.Recent update of os11.3 left system with boot failure, "file not found".I booted mepis and used utility to reinstall grub, but no joy.
Appeared to install ok but on reboot, sda5 identified as 'mepis' not os11.3 and would not boot. Win7 & mepis boot ok.

Next, booted live Parted Magic and repaired as per another thread here, but again, no joy.NONE of the systems will boot.Rebooted mepis live cd and reinstalled grub again. Sda5 still identified as mepis and will not boot. Win7 & mepis boot ok.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: System Renders Verdana In A Weird Way?

Jan 7, 2011

I have copied my Windows fonts to /usr/share/fonts/. While I understand that they can't exactly be rendered like they are on Windows, this Verdana rendering looks odd.(CSS style: font-family: verdana, arial, sans-serif;)Notice how that "N" in "Norton" and the "V" in "Virus" look obese? By means of comparison, here's the font viewer's rendering of Verdana:

Ubuntu Security :: System Hacked / What's Going On?

Jan 3, 2011

I have a 6yo laptop...z60m. Solid little thing that I knocked around so much the hinge broke. My dad jerryrigged it so it can stay open.

So now I use it as a glorified DVD player. Then, around February the hard drive died. I put it in fresh, loaded a couple of regular games and the DVD modifications to play DVD's. So, besides the basic upgrade to 9.1 not much as been done.

Well, last week my panel disappeared. I procrastinated and last night I got on the computer. I did F2 and "xfce-panel" and my panel reappeared exactly how I'd last tweaked it.

With on exception. This blue globe, "Akonadi" had mysteriously appeared.

Thing is that I haven't installed or updated anything for 8 months...why? becuase I haven't had this thing connected to the Internet. The wireless tower has been on. (my bad) but all of the signigals in my neck of the wood are encripted so I just let it be.

I don't know where this program came from. Is it loaded in xubuntu? Why would it show up? And furthermore if there was someone with malicious intent (unfortunatly I do have to take that into consideration) have put this on for data collection?

Server :: 2 Tier File Synchronization (block Based, Possibly Cluster FS)

Oct 25, 2010

I'm looking for a write one, read many file synchronization, file system or similar technique. In fact I want a to imitate a zfs_send/zfs_receive similar behaviour on Linux. My requirements are pure local (or in terms of distributed file systems: rack-aware) file handling with remote synchronization. Some random features/requirements I want to achieve are (I use the terms file and "file system" here interchangeable, as I don't care wheter I have to synchronize file based or use full file system supporting that):
Access on files from a specific host is pure local, i.e. the node has a full copy of a file, no parts are distributed. Read and write access is local, the remote side gets synchronized with write changes only Write changes on the remote side are non-blocking and asynchronous No need for concurrent file access, concurrent, distributed locking and so on Every file is changed by a single node only, other nodes have read access The file "owner", thus the node allowed to write files must be changeable Similar techniques (some as technology concept, not usable for me) exist, among those DRBD, MySQL Replication or even pure rsync.

I don't care whether I'm referring to a pure local solution (i.e. between two block devices) or a client/server mode. DRBD won't fit because its a peer to peer solution, I need to synchronize a lot of clients with a central storage through that way where DRBD just mirrors from peer to peer among two nodes and doesn't allow another node to take over the role of the primary node (i.e. node A is master, storage B secondary, I want to change to a thrid node C which becomes master and receives hence a full update from storage B.

Just as a guess, I'd make a local LVM volume on every node where write access happens. In the same time there exists a iSCSI target with multipath to a remote hosts which is shared with every node, again providing a clustered LVM. So I'd need to synchronize a local LVM volume with a remote LVM image. The question is just by which technique I could achieve that (i.e. as RAID 0, where every read and write goes to one node only and doesn't wait the other node to succeed). I could achieve this with rsync by a cyclic push to the remote host, but the problem is, that rsync isn't block based thus I'd need to synchronize every time the whole file, not only changes.

I tried to mex two C files under matlab but faild. The system warned stdc++ cannot be found. I need the mexa64 files urgently. if someone can mex the C files using his/her machine.

OpenSUSE Install :: Get A 64 Bit File System To Read 32 Bit File System Drives?

Feb 2, 2010

Have just assembled a new computer and thought I would install the 64 bit version of openSUSE 11.2 in a "Windows free zone". After a hiccup or two I have managed to get a system of sorts running but on trying to copy files from my old computer(via a memory stick) it tells me that Vfat is an unknown file system.On my old computer I am running 32 bit openSUSE 11.2 as a dual boot system with Windows XP and have no problems moving files between the two different file systems.Is it possible to get a 64 bit file system to read 32 bit file system drives and if so how do I do it?

OpenSUSE Install :: Shutdown Takes Very Long Time - 2 Min - Possibly Due To Network ?

Oct 21, 2010

OS: OpenSuse 11.2 64 bit
Machine: HP 8540p i5 4Gb

Shutting down my machine takes a very long time! Not convenient when one want to pack his laptop (I don't dare to when the fan is still blowing).

Upon shutdown, I press 'esc' and see what's happening. The last commands seem to hang. First, shutting down the network interfaces seem to last long than needed (eth0, pan0, wlan0). Sometimes, it stalls also on "networkmanager disconnecting from DBUS" (or something like this ) (which is the very last command executed). Hmm, I will write the exact command down.

Ubuntu :: Weird Brake-down Of System?

May 10, 2011

since yesterday my 11.04 system behaves real strange. Firstly, i can not use any of my external storage media anymore (detachable cd-rom among them). On several devices i tried to mount, they would not appear in /media/ dir, neither could i see them in Nautilus. I know that the system does recognize them in the usual fashion as before, which i can see in system.log and for example GParted.

The other thing is i can't access my trash anymore - when clicking on it in Nautilus, i get the "Sorry, could not display all the contents of "trash": Operation not supported" message. Last obvious and weird thing was that my Ubuntu One panel personalizations i have made since installing are gone (that is adding and removing icons from there) - it is back to the "original" state which was just after installation.

I didn't notice anything else obvious - apart from the things already mentioned, system seems to work fine.The worthy of mentioning things i've done before these failures was the downloading of system updates and installing of some software (tex-base, monkeyaudio codec, DropBox; actually i've got a shadow of doubt cast on this last one, since installing it required some changes to Nautilus). I don't have any previous kernel to try to load.

Since it's been only a month of usage of ubuntu on my new machine reinstalling it wouldn't hurt me so much, but i would really fancy to find out the root of this strange behavior of the system i am experiencing.

OpenSUSE Network :: IPv6 Getting A Global Address Takes A Long Time - Possibly Only After Starting A KDE Session

Jul 8, 2011

My ISP offers the service of native IPv6. So my ADSL router provides me with a local and global IPv6 address. However after a reboot it takes minutes to finally see the global address when using "ifconfog eth0". During that time I can't do a ping6 to an external server, which seems logical. So I waited several minutes, but no global address. After that I started a KDE session, went back to the console(<Ctrl>+<Alt>+F1) and now the global address was there. Is this normal behavior or should I file bug report?

OpenSUSE Install :: Kernel Not Found On Dual Boot System After Zypper Dup

Mar 14, 2011

I have a dual boot laptop with OpenSUSE and Ubuntu. The boot loader used is Ubuntus Grub that came with the Ubuntu installation.

I have done a zypper dup and upgraded to OpenSUSE 11.4. When I reboot my system I can no longer boot into OpenSUSE, Grub says something about a missing kernel.

I think I understand whats wrong here; the OpenSUSE entry in Grubs table hasn't been updated with the changes brought in by the zypper dup (new kernel i guess).

I'm I correct to assume this? How do I fix the problem? Booting into Ubuntu I tried to find /boot/grub/menu.lst to examine it by I cannot find it. I know Ubuntu use a newer version of Grub, does it have a different file layout?

Ubuntu :: E1705 Weird Sound - System Don't Work In Tandem

May 26, 2010

When I installed Lucid, it created a sound problem. I have a Dell Inspiron e1705. The issue is the subwoofer and the other two speaker in my system do not work in tandem. In prior Ubuntu releases I would fix this problem by making the volume up and volume down button control but the subwoofer and the two speakers (Master+PCM). But with Lucid, I don't seem to have the option to set up my audio due to the "simplification" of the audio bar. I downloaded the Gnome ALSA mixer from the repository, but it doesn't have the function I need either.

Something else I can DL to allow me to get my audio to work? I'm loving everything else in this release, please down let me down! Oh, I've been on ubuntu for 2 years, so I'm not retarded, feel free to give me complicated instruction, but GUI ones are preferred(I remember them in the long run).

OpenSUSE :: RTorrent - Apache Error Log Fills With File Not Found

I've just checked my apache error log and it's filled with this:

Every 8 minutes or so.

I'm running rTorrent as daemon on same machine, and I suspect it's trying to access something like http://localhost/announce. But that's just my guess, is it some misconfiguration of rTorrent, and how do I fix that? Or should I just ignore all those errors.

OpenSUSE Install :: Black Screen With Error 15: File Not Found

Oct 8, 2010

I managed to get following config up and running very nicely with an 11.3 installation. But recently I did a clean install of the OS and hoping to preserve my data in the home HD (2TB) partition I did the following operation which resulted in black screen screen with error 15: file not found.

Config: one SSD root (90GB) and swap (30Gb) second HD for home (2TB)

During the installation I reformatted and mounted the SSD with root and swap as above. I left the home HD (2TB) unformatted and mounted as home.

When I did my first boot up, it worked perfectly - Even Fire Fox booted up with my recovered pages as of my last install! However after installing my multi-media codecs, and security updates, etc. to the fresh install I rebooted the system only to discover that I am unable to get past GRUB!

I don't have to lose my data every time I do a fresh install to new ISO release.

OpenSUSE Install :: Windows Disabled My Partition - Error 15 File Not Found

Sep 10, 2009

Getting back my OpenSuse OS/partition.

Background: I had a dual boot system, Win XP followed by OpenSuse 11.1 install. I tweaked it a lot to get my wireless card and Nividia card working. Finally got it to a stage where it was working great.

What happened: For some reasons windows XP had some issues and I had to reinstall the OS. Since I have the openSuse install DVD lying around I took the bold step of reinstalling windows knowing that it will blow away the Grub from MBR. However, during the windows setup, the setup said something about setting the Linux partition as inactive (I think so). Unfortunately, I don't remember the exact message.

After finishing the XP install, I booted in with the XP Cd and tried the repair option to repair the MBR. That really messed up the MBR. So much so that booting back with XP boot CD and running fixmbr didn't work. Finally reinstalled windows again.

Now I am not sure what should I do next.

I tried using the superGrubDisk but it gives the following error: Error 15 File not found.

Ubuntu Installation :: Installed OpenSUSE 11.3 And Can't Boot - Error 15: File Not Found

Nov 16, 2010

Decided I'd like to take a look at OpenSUSE and installed onto my desktop. Already successfully dual booting Ubuntu 10.10 and Windows XP (which I keep purely for iTunes). When I start the PC the Ubuntu grub menu showing Ubuntu and Windows options has been replaced by a Suse-branded screen showing something that looks (to my untrained eye) like a grub menu. Ubuntu and Suse are listed. If I select Ubuntu I am shown a dos screen with "Error 15: file not found". I am then taken to the old Ubuntu grub screen but trying to boot Ubuntu from that menu returns the same error. I know all the data is still there - I can mount the drive in Suse and view all my documents.

I have searched the forums and tried to follow some of the instructions given in response to similar threads but I'm afraid I didn't get very far. Please assume that I have NO PRIOR KNOWLEDGE of Linux! I really know nothing about it and am only just getting to grips with basic terminal commands. Goodness knows why I thought OpenSUSE would be a good idea... I found instructions for running Boot Info Script and these are the results:
