Ubuntu Servers :: Access The Data In .fbd Data File

Feb 19, 2011

We purchased a new database system at work last October, ditching the old system because of a lack of support from the vendor. This is a retail Point of Sale and Backoffice database system. I am not sure what system the new one runs on, but the system we replaced was a Firebird data base. The reason I am posting is because we are now in need of the information contained in the old database which was not completely imported into the new system.

Basically the problem is this: The database in on a Windows XP system and I found a copy of SQL Manager Lite 2008 on the system, which after quite a bit of studying, I figured out how to extract the database into a removable file. I have this file (178MB) on a USB stick in a file called Backoffice.fbd.

My studying suggests to me that I can get into this database with MySQL. I have never used this and have no clue how to do this. All I want to be able to do get into the database and create tab deliminated spreadsheet files for each of the database sections (Customers, Repairs, Sales History, stock files, etc.) Is it possible to do this with Ubuntu and MySQL and if so, can expert suggest one or two things to get me started. While a guided tutorial would be nice because I am not an expert, I am willing to learn on my own if someone could point me in the right direction.

OpenSUSE :: Does KMail Account Data - Such As Login Data / Names Of Pop / Smtp Servers

Oct 6, 2010

Where apart from ~/.kde4/share/apps/kmail does kmail keep account data, such as login data/names of pop/smtp servers? I wanted to install an entirely clean version of kmail, so I uninstalled/re-installed kmail via YAST. I manually deleted ~/.kde4/share/apps/kmail. After installing kmail I found that the account data of my Yahoo account were still listed in the kmail configuration panel. Shall I delete the Yahoo account within kmail prior to uninstalling the kmail package?

Ubuntu Installation :: Restricting Access To The Development Servers And Protecting The Data?

Nov 26, 2010

Every developer in our organization has access to a single development server and all development ( other than basic experimentation ) is done on this server. This is primarily because there are several interdependent systems and having copies of these systems on each developers machine slows that machine down to the extent of making it completely unusable. All developers access this development server using ssh. Of course this implies that scp will also work as the sshd daemon is running making data vulnerable.

We are currently attempting to secure the code and data on this server from unauthorized copying and transfer.

Currently I am attempting to set up virtual machines on each developer machine that can then be used to connect to the development server. I have created a shell that does nothing but allow for the typing of one command that simply transfers ( ssh login ) the user onto the development server.

I am using virtualBox and ubuntu mini to achieve this.

Problems: The first question is if this is a reasonable way to achieve what I am attempting to. Is there a better way?

The others is more in terms of the set-up: I am attempting to resize the virtualBox console. I tried this by editing grub. Although I am able to resize the screen at start-up the entire screen goes back to ( what I believe is 800x600 ) after the Ubuntu splash screen.

The virualBox seems to have completely messed up the keyboard detection how can I rectify this?

The other is regarding the restricting of shell access I have currently done this by removing access to /bin/ for normal users. Is this secure enough or is there a better way?

Red Hat / Fedora :: Full Disk Encryption DD - How To Access Data In DD File

Feb 12, 2010

I am investigating full disk encryption and have made a DD copy of the hard drive which has been encrypted, this DD file is stored on my computer for analysis.

First question is - Anyone know how i can access data in this DD file even though its been encrypted?

Second question - Is there a DD command where i can image the systems memory? I ask this because when a system is turned on, to get past the pre-boot authentication stage you need a password. From what i understand, this password will be passed in to ram when power is applied to the system. Making a copy of the memory will also copy the password?

Ubuntu :: Excel Data Shrinks To The Small Scale - Unreadable When Copy Data From Another Spreadsheet Onto The New One

Jan 17, 2011

I've been using Excel from OpenOffice with moderate success for the last year. Now I've just tried to open a new spreadsheet and I'm suddenly getting a highly condensed view. The cells are about 1mm X 4mm. If I expand them by selecting and dragging, then try to copy data from another spreadsheet onto the new one, the data shrinks to the small scale -- unreadable.

Programming :: Data Directory In Automake - Data Is Always Read-only ?

May 9, 2010

I have some data files that should be distributed with my program. Using dist_pkgdata_DATA in Makefile.am, I get these files installed to /usr/local/data/share/package-name. The problem is that data is read-only, and my program needs to modify it. Playing with dist_sharedstate_DATA, dist_localstate_DATA, dist-data_DATA varibles, I got different installation directories, like /usr/local/com, usr/local/var, but data is always read-only.

How can I distribute modifiable data files with my package? I need some common directory for all users, or maybe local data in a user directory.

Ubuntu :: Can't Access HFS+ Data

Aug 25, 2010

On my Mac, OS X Snow Leopard 10.6, I copied my itunes music files onto my external hard drive, which is HFS+ formatted (as FAT32 just wouldn't cut it for the other files that are on this drive, mainly 1080p video spanning several gigs on a single file)..

Here's the problem, Linux doesn't have ANY permissions it seems to access it.. I did nothing special on the Mac side, just drag and dropped all the files over.

As a normal user I can't open the folder. As root, I can go into the folder, but still can't access the files themselves!

I can't write to it either to change permissions because HFS+ is read only.

I need these files IMMEDIATELY, and I need to know how to do this now.

Normal user: [URL]

As root: [URL]

Ubuntu :: How To Mount Partitions For Data Access

Jul 3, 2010

I figured I could just go in to my Kubuntu desktop and look at the drive. But it has only a lost and found and grub folder with a few files on the root named config-[version]-server (note this is a SCSI). Guessing I'm looking at the boot partition? So how do I mount the other partitions? When I do a fdisk -l I see 3 sdb 1,2,3 (2 and 3 are large, 1 is my boot partition) but when mounting them I get wrong fs type. I was sure its ext3 ( also tried 2 and 4 )? I just left the default 7.04 fs when I installed it. I'm able to put it in my desktop and my server but for the life of me I can figure out how to get at the data.

Hardware :: Access Data From Old LVM Drive

Jun 12, 2009

I have a server which had one drive in it that was using LVM. I removed it and moved it to the secondary bay in the same server, then installed a fresh new blank drive in the primary bay on this server.

I then installed CentOS 5.2 on the new drive. During the partition phase of the install, I partitioned my new drive and MAY or MAY not have removed the LVM from the second drive and left the partition there, not sure exactly what I did.

After install I wanted to try to mount the old drive so I could access the files on the old drive. The /boot partition shows up when I do a df -h but not the / partition where everything I need is stored.

When I look at the drives in Webmin, the second drive is there and shows up as LVM but has not LVM name.

Basically what I need is on /dev/sdb2.

How I might be able to mount this partition which seems to still exist when looking at webmin.

Fedora Networking :: Access Data Through SSH - Ethernet?

Jan 23, 2010

A while back I've been playing with the idea of setting up one of my machines as some sort of data server and would like to access it through SSH. I've already conducted some tests through the wireless router and apparently on the software side there are no issues with the SSH thing. I also noticed that since the same adapter was in use (wireless) SSH 'fought' with the Internet for the bandwidth

In order to avoid the aforementioned problem and also in the spirit of enhancing security I am thinking of setting up the following network scheme with two laptops and two routers (a wired and a wireless one):Both laptops would receive the Internet service through the wireless router. Both laptops would be connected through their Ethernet ports to the other router. The wired router wouldn't be connected to the Internet. Would this set up allow me to use SSH only through Ethernet thus eliminating possible bottlenecks in the wireless network? I am operating in the assumption each machine would have two different IPs (one per router), is this correct?

For some weird reason (default network device?) when I connect the Ethernet cable to the laptop, although NetworkManager claims to be still connected to the wireless network, I can not connect to Internet (the wired router has no Internet BTW). But if I unplug the Ethernet cable the Internet continues through the wireless network.

Ubuntu Security :: UNABLE - Access Private Data Desktop

Oct 12, 2010

I have a seperate partition for my "/home" folder. Whenever I install a new distro I format my "/" folder.

This way I was able to access my old home data files since I install using a different username. Everything worked fine until last Sunday.

10.10, unlike other versions of ubuntu, has encrypted my old username in my home folder.

Then using this document [url]

I was able to mount my hard drive again. But all the file and folder names are like this.

Btw I don't remember selecting an option to encrypt my old home directory in the first place, what is this ?

Fedora Hardware :: Access Data On Old Hard Drive ?

Jul 30, 2009

I've got an old EIDE hard drive that used to be used for a dual-boot WinXP and Linux (not sure what version - either RH9 or FC1), and I'd like to pull some data off it. That computer died, and I reformatted the Windows partition, but left the Linux portion alone. My current Linux (FC10 + XP) computer uses a SATA hard drive, and I'd like to get the data from the old drive to the new one. I've connected the hard drive normally, jumpered as a slave drive. Linux now boots normally, but I can't access the older hard drive. I tried the techniques in the following thread: [url] and commented there (with more info), but I thought I would be more likely to get a response by starting a new thread.

Here's a summary of what happened: ran "fdisk -l": the command saw both hard drives ran "tail -f /var/log/messages" and got the following: Jul 30 16:00:44 localhost kernel: EXT3 FS on sdb8, internal journal Jul 30 16:00:44 localhost kernel: EXT3-fs: mounted filesystem with ordered data mode. Jul 30 16:00:44 localhost hald: mounted /dev/sdb8 on behalf of uid 500 sdb8 was a FAT partition I had set up for moving files back and forth between XP and Linux (none of the other partitions were reported). ran "vgscan", which only returned one volume group When I ran FC10's Local Volume Management tool, it sees the hard drive and its partitions, but reports them as "Uninitialized Entities".
