Debian :: Cannot Use Sudo Although Su And Gksudo Works

Sep 27, 2015

I am trying to use sudo but it prompts that the password is wrong.

When I try to use gksudo everything is fine. I also can use su - without a problem.

I tried to add my user to sudoers and it seemed to work as you can see here:

Code: Select allronel : sudo root adm cdrom floppy audio dip video plugdev users netdev lpadmin

but it did not change the situation.

General :: Changing File Permissions Works As Root But Not As Sudo

Nov 22, 2010

I have a really strange problem. I have a few files in a large directory that I want to make readable by everyone. So I try this:

sudo find readme* -not -perm -o+r -exec chmod +r {} ;

and get this:

sudo: unable to execute /usr/bin/find: Success

I don't know why it says Success, because the permissions were not changed. I verified by typing this:

find readme* -not -perm -o+r -exec ls -l {} ;

and get something like

-rw------- 1 root root 536871076 Nov 22 14:06 readme_20101122200429
-rw------- 1 root root 536871892 Nov 22 14:08 readme_20101122200642
-rw------- 1 root root 293458128 Nov 22 14:10 readme_20101122200859

as a last resort, I tried:

sudo chmod +r *

and got:

sudo: unable to execute /bin/chmod: Success

and again Success really means fail. So, I gave up and logged in as root and tried:

find readme* -not -perm -o+r -exec chmod +r {} ;

This time it worked. Why?

EDIT: /etc/sudoers looks like:

## Allow root to run any commands anywhere
root ALL=(ALL) ALL
user1 ALL=(ALL) ALL

Ubuntu :: JDownloader Wont Write To / Media / X / But Works When I Run With Sudo?

Oct 6, 2010

I installed two programs recently, Vuze and JDownloader. Vuze seems to run perfectly fine and write to the /media/x directory.However JDownloader keeps saying "cannot write to location /media/x" or something like that. Only when i run it as sudo will it write to that location. So currently thats what I have done. But how do i make it so it runs without sudo and still can write to /media/x also, why is it that vuze has write permissions but jdownloader doesnt?

Debian Multimedia :: Etch>Lenny, Sudo Konqueror No Longer Works?

Feb 2, 2011

Testing an upgrade Etch>Lenny 5.08, and one issue I've found is that "sudo konqueror" in a teminal no longer gives root priveleges, instead konqueror starts with limited rights. It also seems that using a .desktop shortcut, an attempt to run konqueror under any credentials other than the logged-on user fails.

Yet, 'sudo kwrite' works. Anyone met this before, or know why?

General :: Mount.nfs Fails In Ubuntu / Works On Red Hat?

Aug 13, 2010

I want log in locally to my Lucid (10.04) workstation and have my code saved over the network on my samba account At work, all developers have samba user ids and when we were running Red Hat, we went thru the following procedure to get setup.

* open a shell session to NFS server and execute the "id" command to get my samba user information.


$> ssh l alberto our_nfs_server
$> id
uid=7090(alberto) gid=100(users) groups=100(users)

* Create locally a login on my Linux workstation with the same login and uid.


$>sudo useradd u 7090 g 100 d /home/alberto s /bin/bash alberto



mount error(13): Permission denied Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g. man mount.cifs) mount.nfs: access denied by server while mounting our_nfs_server:/d0/homedirs/alberto It does not work at all!!?? However, the same procedure on a RedHat workstation works fine. No errors.

Security :: SSH Works But Remote Mount Fails

May 1, 2011

I've added my public key to the remote machine's authorized_keys file, and I can ssh over without password. But when I try to mount the remote share using sshfs it -always- asks for my user's password. I have set sshd_config|PasswordAuthentication no
... and when I mount the share as root it says, "read: Connection reset by peer". My mount is being done as user, so it shouldn't be a root authentication problem:
sshfs#bill@droog://media/droogfuseuser,noauto,gid=6,umask=007,cache=no,ServerAliveInterval=15,reconnect,allow_other,comment=sshfs 0 0
I can't mount as user because /dev/fuse is not suid, and I'd rather not set it such.

Ubuntu Installation :: 9.04 Works But 9.10+ Not Works

Jan 23, 2011

well I'll start by SPECS.

Processor: amd phenom II 965 BE

Memory: Corsair 2gb DDR2 800mhz X2 (4GB)
Video Card: Radeon 5750 1GB
Power: 620W Corsair.

I use the TV + HDMI cable. Versions tested 32BITS/64BITS (stay with x64) has no disk error. already downloaded several times. MD5 is correct well ... I'll start here with my concerns ... version 9.04 onwards does not work gives blackscreen. I think "forgotten" by the generic drivers for ATI or something that influences the video. it does not show. 9.10,10.04,10.10 none of those versions worked ... on other computers functioned normally. I found researching how to dribble and go to live. and thus unable to install. but does not work after the pc restarts. Linux does not. shows nothing ... goes to black screen with the (- FLASHING) but nothing else happens.

Slackware :: VirtualBox 3.1.6 Works Better With KDE?

Apr 3, 2010

The latest release of VirtualBox (3.1.6) corrects most of the problems that I had with Slackware and KDE. If you have been avoiding VirtualBox or KDE because of those issues you might want to take another look.The only problem that I'm having now is that I have to click somewhere on the desktop to get a proper display when switching VirtualBox into "seamless" mode. The rest of the window display issues appear to be fixed and full screen mode also works correctly.

Slackware :: Why Should I Install 64 Bit If All Works Well In 32 Bit?

May 21, 2011

I got hold of the 3 cds needed to install full 32 bit Slackware 13.37 It installed perfectly and all is configured and running very smoothly. I have 4gb of RAM in my laptop so compiled the kernel with PAE support and slackware sees 4gb of RAM. It will really be mission for me to get hold of the 64bit ISO as I do not have have uncapped bandwith (3g - UMTS).Will I really benefit by installing the 64bit version, and if so how?

General :: Mdadm Volume Works - But Won't Assemble/mount On Startup

Nov 18, 2010

I have an mdadm/lvm2 volume with 4 HDs that I created in Ubuntu 10.04. I just upgraded the computer to Ubuntu 10.10.

I redid the mdadm commands to get volume up and running, did mdadm --detail --scan > /etc/mdadm/mdadm.conf to get the configuration file.

But now, every time I reboot, it tells me that the volume is not ready. /proc/mdstat says that I always have one disk of the volume "inactive" as md_d127. I need to stop this volume and reassemble the whole thing to get it working.

This is what I get out of mdadm --detail --scan and put inside /etc/mdadm/mdadm.conf:

And this is my /proc/mdstat on boot:

I need to do mdadm -S /dev/md_d127, mdadm -S /dev/md127, mdadm -A --scan to get this volume working again.

This did not happen with Ubuntu 10.04. I'm really fearing the loss of my raid5 data now.

Networking :: NFS Client - Mount Only Works With Proto=tcp While Iptables Is Running

May 17, 2011

Client is running Oracle VM Server 2.2.1 (kernel 2.6.18- Storage is a NetApp 3210 (NFS configured to use TCP).

Iptables on client has udp and tcp ports 111, 2049 and the NFS server ports opened. Info retrieved using: rpcinfo -p NetApp

When trying a manual mount ...

But when using the proto=tcp option, it works ...

Stopping iptables also works (I can manually mount the share without using proto=tcp).

Is the mounting process somehow trying to negotiate first using udp which the Netapp doesn't respond and hence it fails by timing out?

Can I configure iptables such that I don't have to use the proto=tcp option? Or is there another configuration file I can tweak so that I don't have to use the proto=tcp option?

General :: CentOS / Sudo Doesn't Accept Root Password But Logging In As Root Works

Apr 9, 2010

I was trying to edit a file requiring root permissions, so I used sudo. I typed the root password and it failed. This happened three times, and the process was ended. I then logged in as root (su) and was able to navigate to the file and make changes as root. Am I missing something? How would I edit the sudoers file such that this password would work? Or is there another way to log in to the sudo group to make these changes? How do I set sudo passwords?

Slackware :: FreeNX - Authentication Works But Session Fails

Jul 21, 2010

I installed freenx-0.7.3-i486-1alien.tgz on the server (with Slack 12.1), all according to instructions. I installed the no machine nxclient 3.4.0-7 on the client (with Slack 12.2). I ran setup and configured. I used the default no-machine keys, not custom ones. Since authentication failed at the beginning, I enabled DBauthentication, and added my user and password, which seemed to allow authentication to occur.

Here is my node.conf:
# node.conf
# This file is provided by FreeNX. It should be placed either into
# /etc/nxserver/node.conf (FreeNX style) or /usr/NX/etc/node.conf
