  • Issue#463663: Linux - Happy new Debian user here

    Hello all, I recently got an older PC (AMD Athlon 64) from a friend, and it has re-ignited my interest in Linux. I was tired of using windows, so I figured since I got a spare PC, I could install Linux. So I downloaded a few Debian ISO's. Now that I have it installed, I am very happy with it. I am using MATE and it is probably my favorite DE so far. I already installed a lot of extra packages and I've only had debian installed for about 2-3 days now. I have only posted about once since I registered in January, but now I am back (hopefully for good!). Thanks, S_K

  • Issue#918220: Linux - Collision between GUI sessions in openSUSE 13.2 if program from another user run under first

    Originally, after finding out that kdesu, followed by dolphin, did not work, I had posted at http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...er-4175557111/ asking how I could open up a file manager window under a user other than the one the full GUI session belonged to. For example, if I have the computer booted into a full KDE GUI desktop session under user joe, I had posted on that previous thread asking how I could open up in joe's KDE desktop session a file manager window running under user john and with the privileges of user john (instead of joe). Ultimately, I got that first question answered, but then encountered another problem. If I have the computer booted into a full KDE GUI desktop session (on vt7) under user joe and open up a file manager window under user john in joe's KDE desktop session, and then open up a full KDE GUI desktop session (on vt8) under user john as shown in the attached screenshot, the two KDE GUI desktop sessions will collide. Specifically, john's desktop scree

  • Issue#1060799: Linux - Missing user/group owner's name in a directory, is this a POSIX issue?

    We have a RHEL server dedicated to Big Data. Looking thru a directory, I've noticed that there are no user names and group names, it has been replaced by a string of numeric characters. This was data that was imported into this server from another UNIX/Linux type server, no one can seem to remember what type and the information has been lost since that former sys admin has moved on. My manager thought maybe it as a POSIX conflict when it was imported into RHEL. I've read up on POSIX and to me it seems that it applies to portability of code from one UNIX/Linux system to another and wouldn't have anythign to do with it, correct? If that is the case, then why the string of numeric characters? On the destination server, there is nothing like that under /etc/passwd or /etc/group. Code: [root@server]# ls -al /dir1 total 288480 drwxrwxrwx. 103 root      root          4096 Jul  5 12:12 . drwxr-xr-x.  7 root

  • Issue#5982: mounting CIFS with different user for Windows and Linux

    My fstab entry says: Code: //kellerpc.bellaria/D_KellerPc /mnt/kellerpc_d cifs username=aag,password=mysecretpwd,iocharset=utf8,uid=1000, gid=1004 0 0 this works, but the ls output is: Code: drwxr-xr-x 2 aag  root  4096 Jan 25 20:04 kellerpc_d These privileges get me into the windows share as user aag, which is good. However, I would like to chown and chgrp the mounted folder, so that other linux users will access it (impersonating aag on the windows side). How can I achieve that? I was hoping to use ntfs, so I tried this: Code: //kellerpc.bellaria/D_KellerPc /mnt/kellerpc_d nls=iso8859-1,permissions,users,auto,exec but that apparently does not work on dynamic disks. It would be great if a kind soul would help me on this!

  • Issue#6831: Linux - Slackware user interested in Red Hat Certification

    Hello, I just finished my university education and currently trying to find a job. I have been using Slackware for about 10 years now but I'm not really sure how much I know and if it's enough in real-life situations, since how long I've been using it is not a good measure anyway. After thinking things through, I realized that I really love Linux or other UNIX-like systems and I want go into systems and infrastructure development. Unfortunately, the jobs I've seen so far needs me to have 3-4 years of real-life experience with sys-administration. So I have been considering Red Hat Certification before starting with my job hunting, in hope that it would help me land a sysadmin job. Does anyone have experience with this? As in taking the test coming from Slackware camp. Any tips for getting into the field as a fresh graduate? Thank you in advance.

  • Issue#14046: Linux - openSuse Leap installer gets stuck or doesn't load

    I have been preparing to perform a major upgrade and HDD replacement at the same time. While waiting for the hardware to arrive, I have been downloading and burning all the iso's that I expect to need. I have downloaded the openSuse Leap X86-64 iso twice and the boot from dvd fails at the same place each time. -checksums ok, -media boots and verify media ok when done in a different machine -openSuse 13.2 i586 DVD gets to the partitioning part of the install at which point I bail out. When booting from the Leap x64 DVD there is a green progress bar that runs along the bottom of the screen. It gets stuck when that reaches 100%. I left it for 20 minutes last night just in case it was a bit slow. Does any one know which point in the start up this or is there any way to get some verbose messages up on the screen so that I can see what is happening? At this point I am suspecting that something in my machine does not like 64 bit even though the CPU (Pentium D 820) and chipset (intel

  • Issue#16906: Linux - end user fails to switch to a newgrp

    So I'm working from an example, where as a normal user, uses the following command: Code: newgrp Then create a file, with touch, then list the file and see that the new group has permissions to that file. The only issue is that when I do this, newgrp, I get prompted for the passwd and then type the user's passwd and get Invalid Password. Code: -sh-4.1$ newgrp testing Password: Invalid password.  -sh-4.1$ newgrp testing Password:  Invalid password. If I add that user to that group Code: usermod -g testing jbaxter Then I su to that user (jbaxter) and them I'm able to use the newgrp command successfully. So I'm thinking the example that I'm looking at is bad and you have to add the user to that group first before issuing the newgrp command, correct?

    Well this year is my 10th official year as a linux user, it is a time of reflection and a time of celebration so at the end of each month I will pick a subject and discuss it in at least two pages worth of material in LibreOffice. This months subject: My journey from XP to linux Windows XP, for many this was the first operating system they used but not for me. My first OS was DOS all the way back in the late 90's, but I never owned a home computer until the year 2000. This was a big year for the world, the start of a new millennium but for me it was the start of a new life. My family moved out of my grandmothers house, we got our own home and also a cheap old computer with windows 95 on itÂ… Yeah that didnt last long, with support being pulled for it we got a proper desktop with windows XP in 2001. XP was easy to use, for my family it gave away the fears we still had of computers. For two years XP was our OS of choice, with our mighty E machine we braced into the age of the internet a

    Hi, I have a service account that logs into my server from another server frequently. They are legit logins. When I use the 'last' command, I see all the logins. But I don't want to log the logins for this particular service account (and only this service account). Is there a way to do this? I am running Red Hat 6.x and CentOS 6.x. Of course I can use 'last |grep -v theServiceAccount' to exclude it when using the 'last' command. But I do not want to log the logins at all. Thanks Jim

  • Issue#54933: Linux - Issue with different version of a library (libX11)

    I have a Debian-derived Linux distro with "libX11-6" installed. Every time I try to configure ROOT (a package), then I get the error: "libX11 MUST be installed". I saw the configuration file log and I found this: " [...] libraries to check for: libX11.so libX11.sl libX11.tbd [...]" It tries to find these libraries in some dir, without luck. If I try to install "libX11-dev", it answers with "libX11-dev is already the newest version". The version is the same of libX11-6... I think this problem is due to different filesname of different version of the same library. How can I solve this problem? I am a newbie in linux

    Hello! I have a P50 (TopSeller 20EN0013US) and dual boot Windows 10 Pro and UbuntuGnome 15.10 with it. I have been having an issue connecting external displays via the laptop's mini-DisplayPort connector. When I plug in an external display while the machine is running, the internal display will begin turning on and off every second, until the external display is disconnected. The external display never turns on. I have the bios set to use dedicated graphics only. I am using the binary Nvidia driver, version 352.63, and have also tried the 352.79, 358.xx, and 361.xx (from the nvidia-drivers ppa) which all have the same issue. I am using the kernel version 4.2.0.27, which is the stock 15.10 ubuntu kernel. The issue does not occur under Windows 10 Pro. I have been able to work around the issue by setting the mini-Displayport to the primary display device (so it is visible at boot, and ends up being used for the console framebuffer), which then allows me to switch to the console
