Linux, Create Dirs=no, Create files=yes. Possible?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 8, 2004
I have looked at a number of linux permission questions, and, although I think I have a pretty good understanding of the linux file system (ext3), I thought I'd run it past you guys & gals.....
I have this folder that is the home for the anonymous ftp user. We do have limited write access enabled (on a strict quota) for quick transfers. What I'd like to do (although I don't think linux can) is grant creation of files but not folders. My understanding of linux permissions makes me conclude that this isn't possible. But if it is, I definitely want to do so.
Am I right? Also, if I remove write rights to the folder itself, then the user won't be able to create anything, right?
Thanks.....all I need is a quick answer.

Well to start things off I'm as new as you can get to Linux. I'm a Windoze user fer years and to be honest I'm totally lost. I'm looking to start my own business here within this year (Nov. if all goes well) and want to start a local ISP. I have several comps all built and ready to go but have no idea where to go with them. I was going to set up the servers using Win2000 but was informed about Linux and how much more superiour it is. So after a bit f research I decided to go ahead with Linux SuSE 7.2 Pro. I've istalled the entire OS and now I'm lost. I can't find my way around at all (except maybe a game or two). Can anyone help me out with resources or websites that I can view to learn how to use a *nix box and hopefully understand what I'm doing?
Linux kenal update yes or no?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 30, 2012
I have a kernel question. Should I update my Linux kernel? I am fairly new to Linux, running Zorin 5.2 core on an older HP (XP originally) with a 3500 AMD Sempron processor, 1.256 gigs of ram and 160 gig hard drive. I have had this OS for about 4 months now. My Ubuntu update center says there are kernel updates. I have searched and read the forums and am still unsure whether to update my kernel or not. It seems it causes a lot of problems, which I am not sure I will be able to solve. Can anyone help me with the benefits versus troubles this could cause me and what is best to do, update or don't update?

My Linux is on Speed (yes, the drug) (amphetamine)

I really, really do not knooooowww ooooffff another way to describe this problem. In fact, I just had the idea that in this post, I'll type normally (quickly), and you can all experience what I am talking about (e.g. the way the keyboard just freaked out completely and typeeeeeeedddddddd aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaabbooout 5 o's and w's and o's and f's in 'know of' (first sentence)))))))))))))..........
IIII'm dead serious. Sometimes, while I type, it is as if the repeat rate goes up to about a million strokes per milliseconnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnddddddddddddddd (honestly, i am not intentionnnnnaaaaaaaaallllllllllyyyyy ddddoooiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiinnnnnnngggg this) and I cannot control it. It's as if my CPU is overclocked to 235,235GHz (it's that fast) or as if the kernel/linux cannot contttttttttttroooool the clockkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk cycles, or,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, i have no idea.
It happens sporadically.
It also effects other things, for exaaaample, someeetttttiiiimmmmeees
EeePC vx6: Windows 7 yes, Linux no
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 16, 2011
Windows 7 worked fine with ASUS EeePC vx6, Linux?
During the last 2 weeks I tried 8 of the first 10 Linux distributions (distrowatch.com) - not even one did work; neither no wireless or no sound.
I could not boot CentOS, PClinuxOS, installation failure: Sabayon, Fedora, Debian (USB 3.0 problem?).
1. openSUSE: installed, wireless okay, sound problem (cheese and skype),
2. Mint: installed, wireless with help here in the forum, sound problem.
3. Only live medium test: Easypeasy, Ubuntu (10.10 and 11.04) ,Fedora 15:
I tried "alsamixer", "gnome-alsamixer", "pavucontrol", editing alsa-base.conf and similar files :
YES there is video chat for linux!
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 10, 2008
With all this talk of funpidgin, I realized that a lot of people don't know of kopete. It is an IM client, separate from pidgin (and funpidgin) IMHO it is buggier, slower and less easy to use than pidgin, and it doesn't support GTalk (XMMP) BUT it has video support.
you can get it by running
sudo apt-get install kopete
if, when you try and use video, it gives an error about some jasper related thing, then run
sudo apt-get install libjasper1
sudo apt-get install libjasper-runtime
I'm not sure which one fixes it, but I got both of them, and 1 of them does the job.
now, I am waiting to see what happens first, if pidgin gets video working, or kopete gets Gtalk working, whichever one it is, will become my full time IM client.

Linux terminal installation yes/no error

I want to set up something, example: phpmyadmin;
sudo apt-get install phpmyadmin
When I enter this code a yes or no question is seen. I answer 'yes' 'y' but it is cancelled.
Is /usr/src directory related to the booting of Linux kernel in any way? If yes, how? [closed]
location: linuxexchange.com - date: July 2, 2012
Specifically, I was running Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid Lynx), and accidentally mounted an empty device (partition) at /usr/src. I forgot to unmount the empty device and on rebooting Ubuntu greets me with a message similar to the following:
"Ubuntu will now start in low-graphics mode as it can't find the
configuration for relevant drivers"
And then it sits idle just like that, with a dark screen (after I click okay on the above dialog box). It also gives me an option to configure the options myself (which I am not comfortable doing).
I am suspecting that this is related to /usr/src being empty as that is the only stupid thing I remember doing. Can somebody explain if this is really the case?
