forcing e1000e driver on new device (old kernel... old everything)
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 25, 2012
I've got this box that (for whatever reason, can't really tell why) got a ubuntu 10.04 installed on it. The problem is that it's got an intel ethernet card that's not got registered to use e1000e driver (and I check in my updated kubuntu box and it uses e1000e by modules.pcimap).
The card has PCI id 8086:1503.
Now, we hacked modules.pcimap and added a line like the one I have in my computer, then modprobed e1000e, the module got loaded but no new device.
Then rebooted, just in case, and the module didn't get loaded... so I bet there's something missing.
So, how can I force e1000e to use this device? I checked with modinfo and I don't see a parameter to tell e1000e which PCI id to use. Thanks in advance.
What is a hash and how do I make and use one in Ubuntu?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 13, 2011
Hey all this might be in the wrong forum area, but it sounds security-ish so if its not I apologize. But in light of the whole PS3 lawsuit thing againt a guy who released a hash of a PS3 key, I'm sorta wondering what a hash is and how its different from a key? how is it used? How do I make one in ubuntu?
Thanks in advanced!
What is used to create the shadow password hash??
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 27, 2007
When you create a new user thats able to login etc etc, you also create there password for them, this obviously works with the users password being hashed irreversibly, then every time the user logs in they give their password, this is hashed again and then compared against the hash in the password file. What i'm asking is what command/function creates this hashed password that goes into the shadow file. eg you can do similar things with echo 'password'|md5sum
i'm guessing this shadow password hash is created in a similar fashion and i'd like to know what it is? So i can create my own user adding script that adds new users into a file of my own. I know to change a password you just use the passwd command but i'm trying more to be able to retrieve the output.
Hope someone knows thanks regards
ps-i've done an strace of 'passwd' but this didn't make anything to obvious in the method used
[SOLVED] System authentication: password + USB stored hash?!

I am interested in different ways to secure Linux machines (enterprise, banking ... grade). How secure gets a system when using the method described in the title? Does it really make sense in a network context?
password hash storage (md5, sha1...)
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 26, 2005
i'm sure everyone's aware of the fact that it's become easier than previously imagined to find an md5 hash collision. so if someone did get a hold of an md5 or sha1 encrypted password, they could find a collision relatively easily.
everytime something like this occurrs, some ppl suggest using multiple hashes so even if a collision is found for one hash (md5), it may be hard to find one simultaneously for another such as sha1. the argument is normally made that even this is not a good idea and it's better to just use a better algo.
since it's sorta inevitable that more algos are gonna get "solved", it isn't viable to just keep changing which hash is used. so my question is...what is wrong with storing multiple hashes for the same password and other criteria*?
eg. (table in a db)
<some other quality> (ascii sum or something)
so when a password is entered, u check that it's length matches, md5, sha1 and whatever else. so the likelyhood
Generating hash in perl ?

How do i generate password hashes in perl (the ones stored in /etc/passwd)?I tried crypt/md5 but they don't match my /etc/passwd ones .
reverse engineer crypt(3) hash
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 10, 2010
I have generated a password hash using mkpasswd under Linux(mkpasswd utility uses crypt(3) C library function, which uses DES as a default if I'm correct). The hash of my password is hGHG8kqTlGTfQ. Is it possible to reverse engineer this hash back to my password?
How can this password hash be useful? I mean every time I generate a hash with the same password, the hash is different. For example all those hashes are generated with the same password: hGHG8kqTlGTfQ, TZB86wpkAMv3w, .VUzeoahYE2xU
All explanations are most welcome
[SOLVED] Installed nVidia, now everything is huge
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 2, 2011
EDIT, 3 January 2010: SOLVED: In fact, it was the fonts that were being rendered larger and pushing everything out. Altering DPI in xorg.conf solved the problem, see details at bottom.
I used jockey-kde to activate the nVidia (closed-source) driver in order to fix some full-screen problems I was having.
It has fixed that, but now everything is really big. I have my resolution set to 1680x1050 but it appears to be lower than it was before - the K menu, for instance, takes up about 1/6 of the screen when I open it. I took a screenshot here:
I know this isn't much information, but can anyone tell me why - while the desktop appears to be larger with a higher resolution - applications are actually appearing as though the resolution is lower?
Getting everything sorted before installing Linux
location: linux.com - date: August 15, 2009
I'm wanting to install Linux Mint as I hear that this is the easiest to use. I mainly use the computer for the internet, downloading and playing film and music. The main thing I'm looking for in a distro is just to be able to switch on the computer and for the operating system to do everything for you.
I was told that its best to use gparted to partition the hard drive. Is this the best way to go about it?
also the situation is that I need to reinstall vista as for some random reason its stopped updating. Is it best to do this before I start putting in a new partition? I'd prefer not to loose all my programs so just wondering if its possible to create a backup with the current situation.
Finally how would I go about downloading mint? Is it the case that I download it to a CD. I looked on the mint site, but I got the impression that it downloads direct to your hard drive.
Hope this isn't to many questions, its just this stuff really makes my head spin.
Free RAM mismatch
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 7, 2010
I'm seeing something very weird on my current system. the free util reports that I have 1.8G of memory used by programs. when I sum up the memory using "ps avx" or "ps -eF", I get to ~0.7G occupied by processes.
I checked for zombie processes, but found none...
What am I missing?
Thanks in advance!
