I am running Ubuntu 10.04 as a dual boot on my laptop next to Win 7. I installed using all defaults, as I am pretty much a novice user. I also put 10.04 on my desktop at home, but did not install. I am running that machine ON the Win 7 partition. My problem is that on my desktop, I get a boot option of Windows or Ubuntu from the MBR, and Windows is the default. If I choose Ubuntu, I then get the Grub menu which defaults to Ubuntu (fine, I already chose that).
On my laptop (where I did the full install on its own partition) Grub takes over, which would be fine but for Ubuntu being the default. I really want the default to be Win 7. I have read several posts, and a tutorial on changing the boot order in Grub, but when I try to access the file mentioned (etc/default/grub) I get an error "Permission Denied". I have made myself Administrator, so I should have access to everything. I know I need to change the line GRUB_DEFAULT=0 to GRUB_DEFAULT=6 to make this work, but I cannot open the file. Is there an easier way of doing this? Honestly, if you want novice users to try out Ubuntu, sending them to command line is NOT the way. The great majority of people that might be willing to try Ubuntu will run for the hills at the simple suggestion of command line. Most everything else you do is handled by an app, why not this?
I'm trying to install Ubuntu 9.10 on my Windows Vista Home Premium machine. My specs far exceed the requirements to install, so I know there's no problem there.On installation I receive an error somewhat through that says something like:Quote:An error occured:Permission deniedFor more information, please see the log file:C:UsersUsernameAppDataLocalTempwubi-9.10ubuntu1-rev160.logSo.... I go to that file, and the last line in it is:Quote:OSError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: u'C:\ubuntu\install\ubuntu-9.10-desktop-amd64.iso'I did run Wubi Installer as an Administrator, and unblocked it giving it full privileges.It's really annoying because my download speed is 80kb/s so it takes about 3 hours to download. During that 3 hours I can't use my internet so I have to wait, and wait, and wait, and then boom.error. And wubi can't pick up where it left off, you have to uninstall to reinstall, which sucks tremendously.
I installed MATLAB R2009a in my laptop (Fedora 14 x86-64), the installation was succesful but when I run MATLAB (in a console), appears a message: error while loading shared libraries: libut.so: cannot enable executable stack as shared object requires: Permission denied
I find a "solution", execute in a terminal: execstack -c libut.so
I used several times with differents libraries that I needed, but I run MATLAB in a terminal, MATLAB starts in a terminal, only a prompt ">>" and nothing.
I'm trying to install Ubuntu on Windows XP as a dual boot using Wubi, but whenever I try to install it I get an error message that says: An error occurred: Permission denied For more information, please see the log file: c:docume-1lanzarolocals-1 empwubi-10.04.1-rev190.log Does anyone know what this means and if I can fix it?
I have an apache installation with /var/www/bob as the document root and the only site served up. I have bob as the directory's owner, and he is able to upload his files to that folder via ftp (vsftpd on the server). When a browser tries to access the pages, it simply gets a 403 forbidden. The problem occurs when apache2 tries to access the files bob uploads. The www-data user (Apache daemon) gets permission denied when I try to cat bob's files in the shell, so it's purely a permissions issue. What I can't figure out is how to give the Apache daemon the ability to read bob's files while also making certain it does not have the ability to modify any of them.
I have a shared directory on another machine but I can't get it to mount. The permission denied doesn't say where/which permission is denied. Is it on the remote on on the local machine? The remote has sharing enabled for the shareddocs directory and after I have mkdir'ed the local mount point I open it's permissions too.
The verbose response from mount.cfis looks like this:
mount.cifs kernel mount options: unc=//192.168.1.102shareddocs,domain=WORKGROUP,ver=1,rw ,username=clive,,,,,,,,,,,ip=192.168.1.102,pass=** ****** mount error(13): Permission denied Refer to the mount.cifs( manual page (e.g. man mount.cifs) The man page does not have a list of error codes.
I just downloaded OpenOffice 3.2.1 from the openoffice.org weebsite. I followed the instructions precisely and everytime ended up in the same error message - 'error: can't create transaction lock on /var/lib/rpm/.rpm.lock (Permission denied)'. I am using Fedora 13.
I'm having a permissions problem with Ubuntu and apache. There are two users, I'll just call them A and B. All of the files belong to A and group root. I'm logged in as B and I have admin privileges. My website is working just fine but when I create a directory in the web root, change the owner to A on the directory and all files I still get a Permission Denied error when I try to access it from the web. I've also set permissions to rxwr-xr-x on the directory and all the files. So I don't understand what's going on. Why am I still getting a permission denied error?
I want to use SSH to connect to my desktop. I have used Ubuntu 10.10's encryption to encrypt my home folder (thus encrypting my .ssh folder). This means that the OpenSSH doesn't have access to my .ssh folder. When I try to log into SSH before logging in on the local machine I get the following error:
If I log onto the machine, then use SSH it works fine. I want to use key based login, One way to get around this error would be use a different authorized_keys file, but I don't know of a way to do this. This is the contents of my sshd_config file:
# Package generated configuration file # See the sshd_config(5) manpage for details # What ports, IPs and protocols we listen for
I am using Ubuntu server edition 10.04.1 running in Vmware server 2.02.I am connect via Putty so I can use copy and paste.My first goal is configuring a ftp server using PureFtpd using this guide.In section 10 I need to write this command
I'm trying to create a folder using the archive manager to install Resin (web server) in the usr/local folder but I get the error message 'error creating directory: Permission denied.' Is this the easiest way to install an app--by using the Archive Manager--and if so how do I establish the correct permissions.
I'm breaking my head on this.I want to create a development environment. This means that I want to be able to create/change files myself, but php should be able to do the same. I installed a lamp-stack using tasksel. Afterwards I installed phpmyadmin. So far so good. Going to http://localhost shows "it works".
Then I created a folder /home/hwc/www and created a new apache site called hwc, disabled default and enabled hwc that points to /home/hwc/www and has the directive AllowOveride All set. But when I go to http://localhost know I get a 403 Permission denied error. I've tried several trings like changing ownership of /home/hwc/www to www-data:www-data, to hwc:www-data, to hwc:hwc, but all to no avail. Even adding www-data to group hwc and hwc to group ww-data did not help. According to other posts at least on of these solutions should have worked, but it did not. I could probably fix it by letting apache run as hwc, but that doesn't seem right.
When trying to mount samba share off of domain member server sysimage in Windows receive error "There are currently no logon servers available to service this logon request". When trying to mount.cifs from PDC to samba share on sysimage receive error "mount error(13): Permission denied".
PDC is ClearOS 5.2 named "dc0" Samba file server is CentOS 5.5 x86_64 named "sysimage" dc0 Samba version is samba - 3.5.5-1.1.v5.i386 sysimage Samba version is samba-3.0.33-3.29.el5_5.1.x86_64
dc0 is configured correctly to my knowledge, windows machines can join domain, domain users can log into windows machines, user directories are mapped properly, logon scripts run properly. sysimage ldap authentication is set up as shown in "Procedure 7.1.
I wanted to save a python program because I am reading byte of python and I went to save in !/usr/bin. When I try to save in this folder I get this error "[Errno 13] Permission denied: 'usr/bin/helloworld.py'.
I wanted to setup a local Apache2 server for some programming and testing. I installed and got Apache2 working with PHP, MySQL and all works fine. Now I wanted to add an additional directory to somewhere in my /home. And that's where things went wrong. I went to edit /etc/apache2/sites-available/default. This is it:
Code: You don't have permission to access /po/ on this server. So I go to the logfile; which says this: Code: [Sat May 08 16:43:51 2010] [error] [client 127.0.0.1] (13)Permission denied: access to /po/ denied
I tried a lot of stuff using chmod and chown, but all to no avail. I tried to change the ownership of the /home/name/web to root, and to www-data, I changed file permissions to allow executing the files.
I am trying to set up remote login via SSH from my Mac to an Ubuntu desktop. Here is the error i am getting:
Code: Permission denied (publickey,password). I'll give background:
- Both computers are on the same network - I'm not using the default port 22 - I have successfully logged in using password authentication, so it isn't a firewall/iptables issue i don't think. I've already worked through those issues! - I haven't set up any tcp wrappers on the server yet, so nothing is being denied - I believe the server sshd_config file is setup correctly. I can post it if needed.

I had Fedora 8 installed in few clients and a server (same server for NFS and NIS), and NIS and NFS configured, and was working fine. Yesterday, I upgraded few client computers to Fedora 15 (server is still same), and configured NFS and NIS client. NFS is working fine, I can see home directories.
For NIS: ypwhich, ypcat passwd gives me correct uutput, ypbind is running. The problem is, I can't login to NIS client. The error is: Permission denied, please try again. My nssswitch.conf is
Is it possible to change the general permission denied error. I have some rather young users on this system that think they can "hack the gibson" and I would love to change the general error message to something a little more rude/funnyex:# cd restricted area -sh: cd: restricted area: Permission deniedI am curious if its possible to change the error message in general?ex:# cd restricted area-sh: cd: restricted area: (funny/rude message goes here)Quick info:This is a Gentoo 2008.0 system, I would also love to do this on my slacware and OpenBSD boxes as well just for kicks.
I did create an rsa certificate with ssh-keygen using my root account on a client: ssh-keygen -t rsa -b 2048 no passphrase I did copy the rsa pub_key from my client to the server scp id_rsa sampleuser@sampleserver:/home/sampleuser/.ssh/authorized_keys
I did change the ownership to the "sampleuser" of the pub key file on the server: I trayd to connect: ssh sampleuser@sapleserver
I get that: permission denied (public key)... I know I do smth wrong but I don't know what.
