Ubuntu Installation :: Cant Access Super User Even With Correct Password

Dec 11, 2010

After updating my system yesterday my laptop will no longer connect to my wifi connection, in fact the network manager doesn't appear on the screen. I cant access super user even with the correct password. Some programs fail to load e.g. hardware drivers.I'm online now using my ethernet cable. I cant update grub due to errors in etc/grub.d/README.I'm logged in as root now instead of my own user account.

Debian :: Root / Super User Access On KDE Version

Mar 16, 2009

After a week of working with Debian, I decided to install the KDE3 version straight from an NetInstall CD. This fixed some issues for me as well as made networking and folder sharring a snap! But now its time to add all the extra packages I need.

Here's the problem: Using any kind of Package Manager yields the same results:
E: Could not get lock /var/lib/dpkg/lock - open (11 Resource temporarily unavailable)
E: Unable to lock the administration directory (var/lib/dpkg/), in another process using it?
RESULT=100

I've tried apt-get from root command line and the KPackage Manager that comes with KDE3 with same results. I have only one user that was created during Debian install. I'm having some other problems, from what I've seen on the net, they all seem to point to not having proper Super User access (I'm guessing here). What could cause this error? AND/OR How do I make sure I have top level access to the configure the system? (I tried logging in as "root", but the login errored out saying that this was not allowed).

Ubuntu :: MySQL Password - Access Denied For User

Cannot seem to use my mysql password, keep getting the error
"Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES)"
So I tried checking my password using mysql -u root -p and I get the same error as above. I've tried accessing mysql with skip grant tables disabling the need for a password so I could reset my root password. After going through the necessary steps I still get the error above when typing my password in for mysql.

OpenSUSE :: Access Root Components With User Password?

Jul 20, 2011

So I'm attempting to get my system to not require the root password while still requiring some form of authentication. My current issue is getting yast2 and its components to ask for the user's password and not the root's.

Is there a way to have these tools ask for user's password instead of root's?

Ubuntu :: Unable To Log In As A Super User?

Apr 22, 2010

Recently I installed Ubuntu using WUBI. During installation it asked for a user name and password which I filled in. That user name and password are the same that I now use to log into ubuntu. But now I am unable to log into super user using the terminal. When I try to log in to the super user account it says that the password is wrong. During the whole installation process only once did wubi ask me to enter password and I am using the same password. My windows user name and password are the same as what I entered during installation.

Software :: ERROR 1045 (28000): Access Denied For User 'root'@'localhost' (using Password: YES)

Feb 13, 2011

for some reason root lost grant privileges and I can't get it back. The user got grant_priv = 'Y' in the usertable. I've tried to reset all the priviliges to the user by killing MySQL process and started up again without grant options with no luck. I've also tried lots of other things but can't seem to get it work. Here is what I get: Quote:

[root@xxxxxxxxx mysqldba]# mysql -p

Software :: ERROR 1045 (00000): Access Denied For User: 'SOMEUSER@linuxdev2' (Using Password: YES)

Feb 28, 2011

I need to get an old MySQL Client(4.1)to connect to an even older MySQL Server (3.23).The goal is to do a Java/JDBC connect to the old Linux/MySQL 3.23 database, in order to update text information for a Lucene search (which will also run on linuxdev2). The problem is that I can't connect to the Linux/MySQL 3.23 server from a remote Linux/MySql 4.1 client. I can't connect from JDBC; I can't connect from "mysql":

Code:

LOCAL (intranet):
mysql -uSOMEUSER -pSOMEPASSWORD mysql => OK
REMOTE (from linuxdev2):

Ubuntu Servers :: Setup The MYSQL Server - Error: 'Access Denied For User 'root'@'localhost' (using Password: NO)'

Mar 26, 2010

I set up a servber on my local machine, & also PHp - Both working fine.I'm trying to load up MYSQL i have installed it, & *can* start/stop the server. however if I do anything else with it, I get this error :-

Quote:

root@gordon-desktop:~# sudo mysqladmin -u root -h localhost password MYPASSWORD
mysqladmin: connect to server at 'localhost' failed
error: 'Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO)'

Query :-

1) How do I know MYSQL is actually active ? (apart from the message it says that its statrted (or stopped).

2) Is there a way to

a) Find out the usernames that are recorded on the MYSQL server ?
b) set / RESET the 'root' username (I know MYSQL root user is different to PC root user)
c) anything else I can do on the PHP / website code to see if MYSQL is working

(as yet, no tables / databases etc have been set up - as I can't get past this error message - I get the same error when setting up a database.)

Ps I did allow my usermname (when logged in to ubuntu) to edit / create files in the /usr/www/ directory (but it is still OWNED by 'root' - that directory)

Ubuntu :: Run A Program As Super User (root)?

Feb 15, 2011

I have been trying to run the program unrevoked so that I can flash and root my phone. I want to do this on Linux, but this requires me to run the program as root and I don't know how to do this. I looked it up online and it told me to simply type sudo reflash or gksudo reflash and I tried both, sudo says it can't find the program and gksudo does something then nothing appears to happen.

Ubuntu :: How Is Super User In Authentication Prompt Determined

May 3, 2010

How is the super user determined for the dialog box that pops up when trying to perform administrative tasks, "An application is attempting to perform an action that requires privileges. Authentication as the super user is required to perform this action."? Does it always ask for the password of the default user created during the OS install, or should it prompt for the current user's password if that person is an administrator?I use likewise-open for windows domain authentication, so I typically log in as a windows user that likewise-open has added to the list of users on this system. I have given this user sudo access and added the user to all the same groups as the default user, yet whenever I perform an administrative task in gnome I am prompted for the password of the default user. Is this normal? It seems like the behavior would be to ask for the current user's password if that user is an administrator, and if so what determines that the current user is an administrator?

Ubuntu :: Firefox Plugins Only Work For Super User?

May 12, 2010

I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 minimal with Openbox; far from a standard install but nearly everything works the way it should.

The problem appears quite simple:

Firefox does not recognise installed plugins (i.e, Flash) when running as the standard user; if I run the command 'sudo firefox' however, Firefox loads in plugins just as it should.

I've checked about:plugins in both instances and this has confirmed what is stated above. The list is populated when running as the super user, and empty when running as standard.

I have a very stupid case, I have to use a domain user to install one software in RHL4.8, but this software need a super-user permission but not root.
So I need a domain user who has super-user permission.
Not use su, sudo.
If I use su or sudo ,the software will be installed under root. The requirement is the software must be installed under a domain user.
How can I do?
