jribrokra: hi12:40
rokrahi again :)12:40
jribwe need to clear something up, I'm a bit confused12:40
jribdid you run "ln -s /bin/true /usr/bin/file" or did you run "ln -s /bin/true /usr/bin/file"12:40
rokra jrib first time you said me ln -s /bin/true /usr/bin/file , and you repaet do : ln -s /bin/true /usr/bin/file lol12:41
rokraI did the ln -s /bin/true /usr/bin/file12:41
rokrayes you understood me?12:41
rokrafirst time you said me ln -s /usr/bin/file /bin/true and second time ln -s /bin/true /usr/bin/file12:42
rokraI did the second12:42
jribI never said /usr/bin/file, I always said /usr/bin/fileexec.  We need to undo that now12:42
jribI assume you made the backup of the original file?12:42
jribrestore it12:43
rokrafile or filexec is the same12:43
rokrathe real name is carserver12:43
jribhow is it the same?12:43
rokrajrib: for me I used file for a var in our example12:44
rokrabut ok there is also a file " file" in the /usr/bin12:44
jribso "fileexec" is not the name of the program?12:44
rokrathe realname is cardserver12:44
jribhow are you trying to run it?12:45
rokra/usr/bin/cardserver or cardserver12:45
jriband then what is the error?12:45
jribwhen you do /usr/bin/cardserver12:46
rokra-su: /usr/bin/cardserver: No such file or directory12:46
jribwhat's with the "su" thing?12:46
rokradont  know12:46
rokraI checked on a debian sytem and it worked :s12:47
rokrabut on the ubuntu I have this error12:47

soundraylment_ox: Hi01:34
soundrayOpen the file with 'nano /etc/passwd'01:35
soundrayMove the cursor to the end of the first line and delete the "/tmp" with the backspace key.01:35
soundrayGot that?01:36
lment_oxhow do i open in nano ???01:36
lment_oxi am in nano but how do i access root file within that windo?01:37
lment_oxsame first line as before???01:37
=== wauwau_ [n=wauwau@i577BBAF5.versanet.de] has joined #ubuntu-classroom
soundrayHey, I would really like to help you, but you have to do what I ask you to, and not something else.01:38
soundrayHit Ctrl-X to exit nano. You should get back to the # prompt.01:38
naliothsudo nano /etc/passwd01:39
soundrayEnter 'nano /etc/passwd' (everything between the quotes)01:39
naliothdon't forget the sudo01:39
soundrayno, nalioth01:39
soundrayWe're in recovery mode.01:39
jribrecovery mode01:39
=== nalioth runs away
lment_oxok opened01:40
soundrayMove the cursor to the end of the first line and delete the "/tmp" with the backspace key.01:41
soundrayCan you do that?01:42
lment_oxthere is no "/tmp"01:43
soundrayDoes the first line read "root:x:0:0:root:/root:/bin/bash"?01:44
lment_oxno when i opened nano, screen is blank other than options at the bottom01:45
soundrayStrange. Do a Ctrl-X again to exit nano.01:46
soundrayDo you get any output when you enter this line:01:49
soundraycat /etc/passwd01:49
lment_oxfirst line reads root:x:0:0:0:root:/root:/tmp01:50
soundrayNow enter all of this line:01:51
soundraynano /etc/passwd01:51
soundraylment_ox: is the file opened in nano now?01:52
lment_oxat the top says:  gnu nano 1.3.12 file etc/passwd but rest is blank01:52
lment_oxother than commands at the bottom01:53
soundrayOkay, we'll take a different approach now. Ctrl-X to exit nano01:53
soundraySeries of commands now. The first one:01:54
soundraycd /etc01:54
soundrayGot that?01:54
soundraycp passwd passwd-copy01:54
lment_oxpermission denied01:55
soundraylment_ox: are you sure you're in recovery mode?01:55
lment_ox100% waited for option to login to recovery used my usr name logged in01:56
soundraylment_ox: did you set a root password at any point?01:56
lment_oxjust did01:56
soundrayjust when?01:57
lment_oxi just went into admin made sure my password was what i set it as01:57
soundrayWhat do you mean by "went into admin"?01:58
lment_oxsys/admin /user groups  root01:59
lment_oxin gnome01:59
soundraylment_ox: did you run 'sudo passwd' at any point?01:59
soundrayWhat does your prompt look like at the moment?02:00

soundrayTry this one:02:01
soundraysudo nano /etc/passwd02:01
lment_oxsame as prior02:01
soundrayOkay, something is wrong with your system, and I can't imagine how it got that way.02:03
soundrayNormally, when you choose recovery mode, you shouldn't need to login at all.02:04
soundrayIs this a fresh install?02:04
soundrayNot upgraded?02:04
lment_oxno 6.1 waiting for 702:04
soundrayWith all of this going on, I don't know if fixing your /etc/passwd will make a difference.02:06
lment_oxoh yea should i wait for 7???02:06
soundrayWould it be terrible to use a 7.04 CD and do a fresh installation?02:06
lment_oxthen redoit02:06
soundrayWhy wait, it's out...02:07
lment_oxno waiting on 7 to do so :)02:07
lment_oxi am in dutch harbor alaska takes awhile02:07
soundraylment_ox: is downloading the iso and burning to a CD-R an option?02:07
lment_oxnot on this comp also because serv prov likes to time out large file dls but possibly] 02:08
lment_oxdo u know if 7 is torrent avail?02:10

soundrayI think it is02:11
lment_oxwget??? website???02:11
soundrayComes with ubuntu -- but that's useless, right? Dang...02:11
lment_oxi have wget but not the dl url02:12
soundrayI see, sec...02:12
soundraywget http://releases.ubuntu.com/7.04/ubuntu-7.04-desktop-i386.iso02:13
lment_oxdl'n we'll see how that goes02:15
lment_oxreally appreciate all the help02:15
lment_oxQ: though when i install 7 will all of info from 6 be deleted02:15
soundrayWell, I hope it will have helped in the end.02:15
soundrayYou should back up your /home directory and possible /etc for reference.02:16

soundrayDepends on what you have in your system...02:17
lment_oxnothin but fonts and images at this point , but i am in the end trying to access root to install a anti virus as well as sun java asp02:18
soundrayAre you setting up a fileserver or mailserver?02:19

lment_oxfile server i think i would have to ask my boss havent got passed the root problem to know more02:20
lment_oxthats what i thought as far as linux cause you can debuh that shit right???02:21
soundrayAnyway, if you do a fresh install, it will format the partition that you set as /02:22
soundraySo it's best if you copy any valuable data to another machine, external hard disk or optical disks.02:22
lment_oxwhen wget dl where is the dl directory??? desktop???02:22
lment_oxdat file work???02:22
soundrayPresent working directory.02:22
soundrayYou mean tape?02:23
lment_oxold school lmao02:23
soundrayIt should, if you have a driver for the DAT drive...02:23
lment_oxbelieve so02:23
lment_oxpresent working directory is the name im logged onto right???02:23
soundrayit's what you last cd'd to.02:24
soundrayEnter pwd to find what it is currently.02:24

soundrayOkay. What does 'mount | grep sdc' say?09:10
b33r/dev/sdc1 on /mnt type vfat (rw)09:10
soundrayDo a 'umount /mnt'09:11
soundraysry, make that 'sudo umount /mnt'09:11
soundrayThen do a plug cycle (remove and plug it in again).09:11
b33rshould I put back in the auto mount?09:12
soundrayb33r: no, not yet09:12
b33rok what now?09:12
soundrayWe have partitioned it now, but we still have to format it.09:12
soundrayThink of a nice name for it, like Stick09:13
soundrayThen type09:13
soundraysudo mkdosfs -F32 -n Stick /dev/sdc109:13
soundrayThen reenable automounting09:14
soundrayand do a plug cycle.09:14
b33rthanks worked :D09:15

soundray/dev/sdc1 on /media/Stick type vfat (rw)09:15
b33r/dev/sdc1 on /media/Stick type vfat (rw,nosuid,nodev,shortname=mixed,uid=1000,utf8,umask=077)09:15
soundrayHey, success :)09:16
soundrayAny questions?09:16
b33rthank u very much mate09:16
b33ryeah what's rw,nosuid,nodev?09:16
soundrayAre you British? :)09:16
soundrayreadwrite, can't make root executables on it, can't create special device files on it.09:17
soundrayMakes good sense for an automounted device.09:17
soundrayOkay, no problem mate.09:17
b33r1 more thing now if I remove files on a windows box will the problem return? =/09:18
soundrayNo, I wouldn't think so.09:18
b33rok thanks again09:18
soundrayTo get it back to the old format, you'd have to use a utility provided by the manufacturer.09:18
soundrayGot a suggestion:09:19
soundrayNext time you need a USB flash device, get a mini SD card reader. Very cool, much more versatile :)09:19
b33ruhh what's that?09:20
soundraySD are memory cards for cameras, voice recorders etc.09:20
b33ryeah well where do u stick it? USB? :/09:21
soundrayThe card reader, that is.09:21
b33roh nice, gonna look it up09:21
b33rbrb booting windows to check if it'll work fine there =)09:21
