I have two drives in my computer: a 160GB and an 80GB. The 80 holds Ubuntu, the home folder, etc. The 160 is for other files. I need to change the read-write permissions on the 160, but I can't. If I do it through the GUI (right-click>permissions) it just changes back instantly. If I do it through the command line (even with sudo), it has no effect.
I did a backup and the files I got had a lock on them so i changed the permissions and deleted them somehow. Now I look at the harddrive and it says I only have 90GB left when I should have like 400. Whatsup with this???
I'm new to fedora 13 and I have been through a few installs already with a 12TB raid. Fedora is installed on a separate 250GB drive. I've mounted the 12TB drive as a single share and I'm capturing large video files (12-90GB each) to the raid in a Samba Share across the network. The system runs great for about three days and then I start getting warning messages that "the volume filesystem root has only 1.9GB of disk space remaining" then another later 205MB etc until it eventually fills to 100% and then locks the machine. If I reboot I get a Gnome error and can't login. The only solution has been to reinstall fedora again from scratch.
Each time I allocate more space for root. My current partition is 65G in size. The raid shows only 5.1TB of space used and it shows 7.2TB of free space. The raid share shows as being mounted in /media. Root shows that it will be full at 5.2TB, and I'm almost there, so I'm probably looking at another install in just a short while when it freezes again. I've read reinstall and make a larger root partition, but I'm not sure how big that must be to avoid this problem in the future. Also, is there a limitation on the size that root can be? my question stems from the fact that I have over 7TB of free space but somehow the root is reporting as 100% full at only to 5.1TB.
I'm having a chain of problems, one coming faster than the last. Finally, when things started to brighten up - this happened:Booting into OpenSUSE 11.3 64-bit results in an error where a terminal crops up and attemps to load the kernel, however, it seemingly doesn't have permission to do anything other than load the actual kernel. It can't read the login info so none of it works, and during boot 203 warnings but 0 errors are generated, complaining about the inability to read, or write, files.The booting is customized, because the partition table is gone.Little bit of history lesson behind what happened here:I always used Ubuntu and Windows. Ubuntu was my primary OS and Windows was the secondary. Now, Ubuntu did what it usually does which is to **** up hardcore and suddenly not only suggest, but on its own complete, a partial OS upgrade, removing the kernel and various other nasties.
Recovery mode and older kernels still work, but I got so unbelieveably tired of that bothersome crap I decided I'd do away with Debian and switch to RPM in the hopes that it wouldn't do that. I also wanted to try KDE, and since Kubuntu is... well, an abomination that shouldn't have existed in the first place, I decided to give OpenSUSE a go.I try to shrink my Windows partition, but it's impossible. Some kind of important system file has been located at the very end of the partition and it resolutely refuses to move. To fix this, I get EASEUS Partition Master to shrink it. This works, but it also corrupts/deletes the Partition Table so that ONLY EASEUS Partition Manager can now read it - not even Windows' built-in partition manager works anymore. In order to solve it, I can pay $55 for another program called EASEUS Partition Table Recovery Tool.Haha, yjeah - not gonna happen.
However I don't really notice this until I plop my OpenSUSE 11.3 DVD into the computer and start installing, and notice the complaint from YaST2 that it can't give me a decent suggestion because it can't figure out what the hell's on the drive. Manual specification still works, however, and I manage to install it, only to have YaST2 complain at the end yet again that it was unable to install GRUB. Rebooting throws me directly into a command prompt.So I spend days figuring out how to work it with GRUB and finally figure out how to find the UUID's manually and specify a GRUB2 setup that I then manage to chainboot Windows 7 and boot into both Ubuntu and SUSE.All of it works fine, except SUSE, which has this quite horrific permissions problem, despite SUSE being the root of the file system and Ubuntu being mounted inside a home directory of the SUSE partition (incase that has any effect) - although the two user accounts have the same names and passwords.
how do i give full permissions to my account? At the moment i'm logged onto root so i can create files / folders in my LAMP folder (/opt/lampp/htdocs) i've right click on the folder and gone to the permissions tab and give the ownership to my account (Kevin) but it still doesnt let me create files or folders? i just want to give my account full permissions to every folder!
Is there a way to revert to default permissions using chmod, for root filesystem? As root I accidentally chmod'd / to 755, luckily this is a dev server and not production so its not critical to fix for me, just wondering though....
The issue I am having is that Virtual Box does not recognize my USB drives. I understand that it is related to the fact that Ubuntu cannot recognize the permissions on the USB NTFS drive. So how do I mount the ntfs drive and gain full permissions?
One post suggested that I have to join my user to the 'vbuser' group in users and groups to fix this in 9.04, but I do not have a "vbuser" group in my list of groups. I am running 10.04.
I have one drive for Kubuntu and 4 other NTFS drives. When I'm using Ubuntu Desktop Environment (GNOME), I seem to be able to delete files, create new folders, files etc, in all the NTFS drives. That is, I have full permissions to make changes in the NTFS drives. But when I switch to KDE, this isn't possible. Options like rename, delete, cut, etc, aren't working, they aren't highlighted.Is there any way I can have full permissions to modify NTFS drives in KDE?
I am currently running Ubuntu Studio (a variant of Ubuntu 10.10), dual-booted with Windows 7. For convenience's sake, I have three partitions - one for 7, one for Ubuntu, and a third shared partition, for all of my non-OS-specific media, documents and programs. I am using RhythmBox Media Player, and have it pointed at a folder on the shared partition as a music library.
However, every time I boot, I have to re-mount the shared partition, which requires re-entering my login password. In a similar vein, when I'm installing programs in terminal (doing 'sudo apt-get install [x]'), I have to re-enter my password each time I do a sudo command. Is there any way to keep super-user permissions until I choose to drop them myself? Better yet, can I make it so that logging in as the admin account automatically instates super-user privileges?
I am running Ubuntu Linux 10.04.1 on an AMD 64-bit system. The server is primarily used for Windows file sharing via Samba in a small local network. I use webmin and putty to administer the system. I have two 1.4 TB drives for storage and one 500 GB drive with 18 GB mounted for root.I performed a large cut & paste operation (25.8 GB of files) using the File Manager in Webmin to move a certain folder into another folder within /media/Work. The operation failed and I am now getting a "root filesystem full" error, and am stumped.
we have a data transfer network drive, shared via nfs and samba.But now I got the special demand to make any of the files read and wirteable, regardsless of the permissions they had before.With acl I get the right permissions (via default values) but the standard unix permissions overwrite this. e.g. when I have 644, it does not care that the group has write permissions)Does someone have an idea (except chmod via cronjob )
does anyone know the best way to encrypt an entire HD with both Fedora and Windows 7 on it already? At the very least I would want to encrypt the Linux partition, as that has the most sensitive stuff on it.
I set up a samba server on my Linux box for the purpose of allowing everyone - and I mean everyone - on my LAN network to be able to put files to one folder... The only issue seems to be not having write permissions to the target folder.
Question, re-stated: How do I set the permissions for an entire directory to not require anyone to have a login? I have tried many things, such as "chown -aR /data/public", but I still cannot seem to find the magic words.
I am in the process of writing an rsync script to run unattended backups of my entire file system to another system located on my local network using ssh and password-less rsa keys.
I will absolutely will not use password-less keys with the root account and this is the limitation preventing me from accomplishing my goal because root is required by rsync to access the / tree and copy it to another location. I decided that if I compiled the script into a binary that I didn't have a problem with the password being contained within the binary itself but from what I've read there is no way to elevate to root and then back down to user level from within the script/binary.
I can create the script as the user and use chroot to make it owned by root but retain execution permission for the user but it will still cause the ssh login to be under root and therefore require either that I am there to enter my password or the use of password-less keys under the root account which I reiterate I will NOT do. Currently the script is executed by the user on the machine containing the files to be backed up.
How can I format a USB hard drive to ext3/ext4 or whatever file format and have full permission to read, write and execute all files afterwards? When using the command line (as ROOT of course) mkfs.ext3 /dev/sdb? Restricts the rights to ROOT as does the procedure gParted. The man mkfs did not help much. Configuring the fstab- file is a bit of a hassle, so it would be nice, if there was an option to set the permissions "correctly" right from the beginning. Setting Ubuntu (I'm using Ubuntu 9.10) up, so that it mounts USB devices not as ROOT as default but giving all users all permissions seems to be really complicated, as a guy from my local LUG told me.
I recently installed Fedora 11 64bit and I am curious about encrypting my entire file system for security purposes. I've been on Google for a while now and I keep finding info on how to encrypt a specific folder or home directories but nothing on the entire file system (or I'm missing something big here). It's hard for me to imagine that it isn't. If so, do I need to encrypt the partition my file system is on before installing it? What software should I use? There seems to be so many, it's difficult to keep them all straight.
I have 4 machines; all multiboot. I want each machine to have full rw access to file shares on each other machine, AND, full rw access to the other partitions on the same machine home folder for UNbooted OS's. I imagine Samba will NOT handle all these configurations? What else do I have to do, so that, for example, if I have 2 machines on, and I boot up a third machine in another room, it will auto mount the other 2 machines' shares, and it export it's own shares to the other 2 machines? I want also each machine to have full rw access to shares on the UNbooted partitions of each machine.

how to give full set of permisions to an user in linux to access a folder?
I'm running Apache2 under uBuntu 9.10. My problem is that I use my own user "wavesailor" to work on my websites. I kept all my sites under /var/www and I set up the security of the directory after following the guidelines.
I'm trying to mount a remove filesystem onto my own server. I am able to do this, however I can only access it as root, or if I chmod 777 the lot. Obviously I want to be as secure as possible, so I'd like to avoid either one of those options. Another option is to mount it directly into my home directory, but previously when I was trying out Ubuntu this caused Samba problems - and I was advised mounting in my home dir was a workaround rather than a proper fix.
I have root access with sudo on my own server. I've not set a root pasword, and until I need to I'll avoid it. I have a user account with full control over my own home directory on the remote server. I am mounting using fstab - sshfs#username@remoteserver:/media/sdk/home/username/ /media//remote/ fuse user,idmap=user 0 0
What I would like to do is without changing the permissions on the remote server change the permissions when they are mounted on my own server. I would like them to be in the group sambausers for example. Instead they are owned by root and in the group of 1024 (which I have not set). Additionally for this to work they would have to have 770 on my home server and 700 on the remote server....
I am trying to run a cron job as an oracle user. I put the user in the cron.allow file but it still won't run. Other users are able to run a cron job though. I think it's the way the oracle user was created and I wanted to recreate it. However it owns a lot of other file systems as well as the database. Is there a way to recreate or reset the oracle account without impacting what is currently in place?
I need a FREE solution that can image an entire Luks system encrypted volume and the rest of the used HDD, the MBR and /boot partition. Note: MBR and /boot are not encrypted. Note 2: I want to be able to restore entire drive from image with only a couple of steps. Note 3: Destination HDD space is a factor. Image file must be compressed and the image file must be around 40 to 50 GB or less. The smaller the image the better.
I have used clonezilla live cd before but not for encrypted volumes. I know you can install it in Linux. But, I don't know how to configure it after installation. I would be very happy if someone could tell me how to configure clonezilla in Fedora. How to guides are also welcome. I have one more question. If I image the encrypted volumes and all the stuff I mentioned above while logged in to Fedora, and I restore the drive from the image, will the recovered drive still be encrypted?
