    [ubuntu] Re: xgalax driver problem

    h0dges,

    In the eGalaxTouch utility, in the "Misc" tab, there is a "Mouse mode" setting that you can use to make the touchscreen behave more like a touchscreen and less like a mouse.

    Try...
  2. Re: Howto create chrooted Openssh SFTP without shell access through rssh.

    You're welcome. My answer is no and yes.

    No, you can't hide that stuff in the chroot folder from the user with the rssh setup. They need to be accessible in order for the setup to work. That...
  3. Re: Howto create chrooted Openssh SFTP without shell access through rssh.

    PuTTY? Do you mean PSFTP? rssh should prevent the rssh user from gaining a command shell, so it would be appropriate if the server killed your PuTTY session.

    I would advise against using the...
  4. Re: Howto create chrooted Openssh SFTP without shell access through rssh.

    What happens when you try
    sftp localhost on the computer running the server?

    (Note that I haven't done this in a while.)
  5. [ubuntu] update-grub hangs after finding the GRUB installation directory

    While installing the update for linux-image-2.6.24-19-generic, I noticed that the upgrade got stuck after the following two lines were printed to the "Details" screen:

    [all variants] Re: SSH hangs and then discons after typing password

    Did you intentionally switch to bcmwl5.inf? My Ubuntu 8.04 install (i386 Desktop CD) defaulted to wl (after I used b43-fwcutter). I assume from your statement that switching to bcmwl5 didn't help?...

    [all variants] Re: SSH hangs and then discons after typing password

    dave_t_uk, I do think the server's wireless connection is at fault (at least it's not the sole fault). I get the same problem when trying to connect to wired SSH server with a SSH client on Ubuntu...
  8. Re: Howto create chrooted Openssh SFTP without shell access through rssh.

    You're welcome.

    Only suid root on the real rssh_chroot_helper (not the one in the chroot directory). This is necessary because only the root user can chroot. However, if a vulnerability is ever...
  9. Re: Howto create chrooted Openssh SFTP without shell access through rssh.

    You can have rssh disable rsync, rdist, cvs, sftp, and scp by default and then enable them for each user you want. See the man page for rssh for more help (I don't have rssh ready to do testing...
  10. Re: Howto create chrooted Openssh SFTP without shell access through rssh.

    That is NOT the case. It's just that many programs expect to have /etc/passwd and if it's missing from the chroot jail, those programs may misbehave, so you put a copy of /etc/passwd there. ...
  11. Re: Howto create chrooted Openssh SFTP without shell access through rssh.

    Thanks for the suggestion. At the time I wrote the guide, it was not necessary to allow /home/chroot/usr/lib/rssh/rssh_chroot_helper to run as root. I am no longer running Ubuntu now, so I cannot...
  12. Re: Howto create chrooted Openssh SFTP without shell access through rssh.

    Thanks. I don't know how that mistake was made, but it's fixed now.
  13. Re: Howto create chrooted Openssh SFTP without shell access through rssh.

    Thanks for the correction, the howto has been updated accordingly.

    There should not be any way to to access a file outside of the chroot jail. If it were on the same partition, you could create...
  14. Re: Howto create chrooted Openssh SFTP without shell access through rssh.

    Writing a script to do this is possible, but I haven't see any available to completely automate this process. (BTW, most of this howto is modifying the mkchroot.sh script to fit your system.) If...
  15. Re: Howto create chrooted Openssh SFTP without shell access through rssh.

    I've never seen that before. Have u tried another client? Or do all clients give this error message. what happens when u do

    sftp rsshuser@localhost
    from the server? (Replace rsshuser with the...
  16. Re: Howto create chrooted Openssh SFTP without shell access through rssh.

    Thanks. I'll add this to the original post. I hope u don't mind.
  17. Re: Howto create chrooted Openssh SFTP without shell access through rssh.

    neo4242002,

    Sorry, I missed your post. There seems to be a number of problems:
    o The "-e" is a parameter for echo. It shouldn't be displayed in the output.
    o The error, "cp: cannot stat...
  18. Re: Howto create chrooted Openssh SFTP without shell access through rssh.

    Is your ssh server configured to use /usr/libexec/openssh/sftp-server for the sftp server? check you sshd config file. Also, can you post the relavent log entries (/var/log/messages)? That might...
  19. Re: Howto create chrooted Openssh SFTP without shell access through rssh.

    You're welcome!
  20. Re: Howto create chrooted Openssh SFTP without shell access through rssh.

    The rssh user should not be able to "acess all files." They should be stuck inside the chroot directory (eg. /home/chroot in the guide). While that may look like the real root directory (/) with a...
  21. Re: Howto create chrooted Openssh SFTP without shell access through rssh.

    Thanks edylie. I forgot about that; the Gentoo guide mentioned it too. I added it to the original Howto post.
  22. Re: Howto create chrooted Openssh SFTP without shell access through rssh.

    memtest is fine; that was the one I was thinking of anyway.

    about rssh_chroot_helper. make sure the one in the real root is suid root (needs to run as root). also make sure that there is a...
  23. Re: Howto create chrooted Openssh SFTP without shell access through rssh.

    :-k hmmm, I've seen the "Connection closed" before & it can be caused by a variety of problems: wrong file permissions, missing libraries in the chroot directory, using a disallowed protocol, or just...

    Ubuntu - Oversimplified?

    I've noticed a disturbing trend in Ubuntu lately. Ubuntu seems to be simplifying GNU/Linux to a point where moderately experienced users (or just I) will feel disabled rather than empowered. I...
