Software :: Cannot Install Opera In Mepis 11 - No Sudo Permissions

Jan 6, 2011

I just upgraded to Mepis 11 alpha 2 and am using the gnome desktop. I downloaded the appropriate version of Opera. When I try to install it using dpkg -i, it wont allow it because I do not have permission in either "user" or "root" desktop. I tried to edit sudoers file but it it doesn't seem to work. I can't use sudo because I am not in sudoers file and I cannot edit sudoers file because I do not have sudo permission. When I am in root desktop, I still do not have permission even to read sudoers file. How do I install Opera?

Ubuntu Installation :: Cannot Install Package - Permissions Error While Using Sudo

Mar 17, 2010

tl;dr - sudo make -> operation not permitted, sudo chown -R 777
* -> operation not permitted on some of the files

I am trying to install a library. Sudo make is getting permission denied on file 1, while using regular make I am getting permission denied on file 2. I have noticed some of the directories in the library are under nobody:nogroup. I tried chown and sudo chown, both didn't work. Sudo chown got permission errors, while chown didn't change ALL the files. (operation not permitted once again) Tried sudo su, and working from there, that also did not work. (permission once again). Using lsattr returned "lsattr: Inappropriate ioctl for device While reading flags on".

sudo chmod -R 777 *
chmod: changing permissions of `Makefile': Operation not permitted
chmod: changing permissions of `': Operation not permitted
chmod: changing permissions of `': Operation not permitted
chmod: changing permissions of `queue.c': Operation not permitted
chmod: changing permissions of `queue.h': Operation not permitted
chmod: changing permissions of `ucutil.h': Operation not permitted
Note the .libs folder not having write permission....

OpenSUSE Install :: Revert The Changes Or Change The Permissions Again To Root:root Or Make Sudo Work

Aug 10, 2011

Accidentally I changed the ownership of all the directories under / to my own instead of root:root. Now I am unable to use sudo and many bad things are happening. Is there a way to revert the changes or change the permissions again to root:root or make sudo work ?

Ubuntu :: Sudo Permissions And Timeouts?

Feb 3, 2010

I want to make a script for something, but I'm worried the timeouts on sudo permissions (how you can't got more than 5/10 minutes between sudo commands before needing your password again). Basically, I don't want my script to be redundant and require overseeing for password inputs.

sudo echo Hello.
sleep 6000
sudo echo This is text. This shows the basis of the problem. I will need to enter my password twice.

Would allowing it to run uninterrupted be as easy as running this theoretical shell script his sudo to begin with?

Ubuntu :: No Permissions/sudo In Shell?

May 22, 2010

Just added a new 250g internal-drive in my karmic box, all seems OK and I formatted the partition with Gparted as ext4 but now can't create folders. Unfortunately I don't seem to be able to use a bash shell either, if I type anything in I get no problems until I attempt sudo and then I'm unable to type in a password!

Software :: Unable To Run 'su' And 'sudo' After Changing Permissions?

May 19, 2011

I'm running rhel6 64bit. Accidentally I ran % chmod -R 777 /etc and after that I have a problem to do 'su' or 'sudo'. When I did sudo it complained that /etc/sudoers has 777 while it should be 0440. I changed that and also restored right permission for:

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1966 May 19 13:41 /etc/passwd
-r-------- 1 root root 1161 May 19 13:42 /etc/shadow
-r--r----- 1 root root 3746 Apr 23 01:38 /etc/sudoers

Anyway it failed to 'su'. Then I restored back permissions on files in /etc/security and /etc/sysconfig. Still can't do 'su'. Note: I could login from console as root but can't 'su' or 'sudo'. when I do 'su' it gives error: Password: su: incorrect password

Slackware :: Warning - The Upgrade Of Sudo In - 64 -13.1 Modifies The Permissions On /var

Sep 15, 2010

The sudo upgrade of 2010-09-15 modified permissions on /var in my systems, both on 32 and 64 bit. (from 755 to 700) My subversion server stops working after the upgrade, you have to restore the old permissions by hand. I don't inspect how, but I've checked it few times...

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

Software :: USB Devices Not Detected In 64 Bit MEPIS 11 OS

Jul 17, 2011

Last week, I received a used, older (built ~ 2005 or so) IBM ThinkCentre desktop (machine 8143-2EU) having a Pentium 4 (64 bit), 3.0 GHz CPU. It came with WinXP- 64 bit as the sole OS. When I tested my USB devices with the WinXP OS, they were detected and read. I wiped the WinXP and installed MEPIS 11- 64 bit. [There's only a single Intel Pentium 4, 64 bit CPU known to work for MEPIS 11- 64 bit. It's the Pentium 4 Prescott with EM64T. I don't know if my P4 is that one.] Things seem OK with my MEPIS 11- 64 bit OS except for the times when I plug in USB devices--> they're not detected nor read. In a MEPIS forum, a guy told me to try, after first plugging in the USB devices, running lsusb in Konsole. I do that, the system wakes up, and the USB devices are detected and read. But why do I have to do this to get my system to detect and read the devices? I've made the MEPIS system setting so that all USB devices are automounted when plugged in. Doing that did not correct this problem. As root, in Konsole, I ran hwinfo and noticed that for the USB controllers, the driver - uhci_hcd - is not active. Here's the hwinfo output for one of the USB controllers:

18: PCI 1d.2: 0c03 USB Controller (UHCI)
[Created at pci.318]
UDI: /org/freedesktop/Hal/devices/pci_8086_265a


[I suppose or guess that all MEPIS users who don't have this USB-device-detection-and-read problem have uhci_hcd.] To see what would happen as a test, I also used a MEPIS 11- 32 bit Live DVD in this computer having the MEPIS 11- 64 bit OS. When I use the Live DVD, I have the same USB detection-and-read problem! What does that mean? With some USB devices plugged in while I'm using the Live DVD, I'm forced again to run lsusb in Konsole. This wakes up the system so that it detects and reads plugged-in USP devices. Why? Any idea on how to fix this? Does this problem seem more a software one rather than a hardware one?

Ubuntu :: Install A Dictionary With The Command Sudo Apt-get Install Dict-xdict

Mar 28, 2010

I am a rookie. Yesterday, I intended to install a dictionary with the command sudo apt-get install dict-xdict, but it turned out to fail with the error. Then, I quited with Ctrl+ c, and I did not care much till today because when I want install something else today, the error keeps coming out. Therefore, I think I would better remove dict-xdict first, so I use sudo apt-get remove dict-xdict, but the error still appears:


I have already tries sudo apt-get -f install dict-xdict and it doesn't work out. I am hoping to install some other applications now, but I have not idea what I could do to fix this problem or just circumvent it
