How to get CPU serial under Linux without root permissions
location: linuxexchange.com - date: June 17, 2015
How can I get CPU serial number under Linux (Ubuntu) without root permissions?
I tried cpuid command, it works without root permissions, but appears to return all zeros (I believe because something needs to be changed in BIOS).
Can you please suggest me another way to retrieve CPU serial from a program without root permissions and without having to modify BIOS?
How to setup programmable ram disk without root permissions on linux [closed]
location: linuxexchange.com - date: August 23, 2011
I need to setup and configure a ram-disk from within my C application. Is it possible?
From what I understand, a ram-disk can be setup, mounted and resized only by the root.
My application would not have that priviledge.
Is there any alternate to ram-disk which can be programmed, if it's not possible with ram-disk?
The purpose is to get data available across multiple applications which run at different times and over the network. Since the data is huge(~100-150 GB), ram-disk implementation from within the application would keep the data in memory and the next application would just use it. This would save the expensive writing to and reading from the hard disk of the huge data.
Would appreciate help on this.
Edit: A little more clarity on the problem statement. Process A runs on machine1 and writes data of about 100GB on machine2 over NFS and exits. The process B runs on machine1 and reads this data (100GB) from machine2 over NFS. The writing and reading of this huge data is turning
How do I give [email protected] permission to grant privileges in MySQL?
- date: April 9, 2015
Whenever I try to Grant Privileges as [email protected]
, it says permission denied (using password=Yes).
My root user is the one that I am logged in as. I verify this by select user();
It responds with 'root'@'localhost'.
I have also checked out this stack overflow post which seems to be the same issue:
Cannot grant permissions in MySQL using root (or any account) - "Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost'"
and this one
Host 'xxx.xx.xxx.xxx' is not allowed to connect to this MySQL server
I am having no luck. If I Show GRANTS;, It lists all GRANT privileges: SELECT, Insert, Update, DELETE, CREATE, DROP, etc.
How do I make sure that ROOT has GRANT option itself?
Why would my root user not have all privileges? I am using mysql version: 5.5.38-0+wheezy1 on Debian.
How do I install skype on a Linux without root access?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 25, 2015
I have a Linux Mint 32 bit desktop which I'm not root on (public place), and I want to be able to get skype on it. I attempted to download the dynamic version, but I didn't understand how it worked. I am also a complete linux noob, so simple directions would work. I was able to get steam successfully installed as well as teamspeak 3, so I know a bit about a linux enough at least.

How can I gain root access on a Mac OS X system without wiping the OS?
location: linuxexchange.com - date: May 25, 2010
My father died recently and I've inherited his Mac. I'd love to put it to use in my own life, but I don't want to wipe its brains out just so I can reconfigure it to use in my network, etc. His old files are historically important to me—I trust you can understand my desire to keep them.
I can log in as I had an account on the machine before he passed, but that's about it.
How do I access an “askpass” program for getting root privileges in a GUI?
location: linuxexchange.com - date: July 17, 2012
I'm building my first sizable Linux program that I plan on uploading to the Ubuntu Software Center, and I've run into a problem: I assumed calling something like system("sudo mkdir /opt/test"); in a graphical program would automatically bring up the little dialog that asks for the root password, but it doesn't. I get the error: "sudo: no tty present and no askpass program specified"
So is my assumption that this is handled automatically when the user doesn't have access to a terminal incorrect? And if so, what is the default "askpass" program for Ubuntu, and how might I call it? Can I use gksudo?
I would really appreciate some help. Thanks!

I'm taking some university classes and have been given an 'instructional account', which is a school account I can ssh into to do work. I want to run my computationally intensive Numpy, matplotlib, scipy code on that machine, but I cannot install these modules because I am not a system administrator.
