NIS client login "cannot find user name for user ID"
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 23, 2006
I have recently created an NIS Server on Redhat ES 4 and I have two NIS clients both running Redhat 9. When an NIS user logs into either of the NIS clients, they receive the message id: cannot find name for user ID. I was also receiving thie error for the group ID but remedied this by adding an entry in the local clients group file. I have checked the permission on the passwd.byname and passwd.byuid and all are global read. Any ideas? Everything else seems to be working fine.
Additionally, I see the following in the NIS server syslog:
ypserv: refused connect from 192.168.0.19:32771 to procedure ypproc_match (server,passwd.byuid;-1)
ypserv: refused connect from 192.168.0.19:32771 to procedure ypproc_match (server,passwd.byname;-1)
The above IP is for the NIS client I am logging into.

Is there a Gnome 2 Login Screen changer?

Is there a program for el6, gnome 2, that will change the login screen automagically, rather than configuration through config files?

I installed Ubuntu for the first time yesterday by running Wubi on Windows Vista Home Premium. For all of yesterday and up to lunchtime today Ubuntu was working fine. I followed the instructions on a forum post to remove Evolution Mail via the synaptic applications menu. I proceeded to log out of Ubuntu and reboot (I hoestly can't remember what for) Anyway, ever since I have not been able to log in to Ubuntu. I enter my username and password as normal and they are accepted, however moments the log in page displays again. This continues in an endless loop.
The password is definitely correct because I get an authentication error if I enter anything else. I know I am not the only person experiencing this issue. None of the suggestions I have found by searching this forum have worked.
Someone must be able to fix this problem, please offer any advice you can.
Thanks a lot!
RDP session works on remote desktop viewer but not on login screen
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 18, 2013
Hi. First of all let me say i'm portuguese so, sorry for my grammar
Since steam as been released for linux, and ubuntu came more beauty with unity, and microsoft got insane with win8, i decided to start a new life with ubuntu 12.10 (now i have 13.04). I've already tried some years ago with those free cds, but on that time ubuntu were more ugly and complicated in my opinion, that was the reason because i was a windows user.
Back on topic, i decided to go further and test that option we see on login screen ("Remote desktop login"), after a lot of searches i found that to use this ability i needed to install a rdp server. and that's what i did, by following scarygliders guide. After a looooooooong time it was finally installed and it works on remote desktop viewer (that application which come with ubuntu) but when i try to login by login screen (after doing those steps of creating account in uccs etc) it just appears a black screen with the mouse pointer (which is black too l
[SOLVED] Quake Wars Linux Client.. Need help
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 3, 2008
I want to install the linux client of Quake Wars, but I am unsure what version of the linux client I should install. I am also unsure of what version my dvd is. It's probably 1.1 or 1.0, but I can't say for sure.
So, my question is: So should I just install the latest version of Quake War (I think 1.5) or should I install the linux client for Quake Wars 1.0 or 1.1?
Link in here:
Notice the only full version of Quake War Linux Client is 1.5 and the rest is updates. Which one should I install?
[SOLVED] Generic Kernel Booting into Blank Screen
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 1, 2008
I've been having technical problems installing/running ubuntu 8.04.1 amd64 on my desktop computer. My hardware configuration consists of an Intel Core 2 Quad Processor Q6600, an Intel (Stoughton) G965 motherboard, an Nvidia 8800 gt video card, displaying on a Philips 109b 19” CRT monitor.
The problem is that I get a blank, flickering screen after selecting the Ubuntu linux generic option in the grub boot loader. Imagine a black image displayed on a monitor set to a resolution and refresh rate it does not support and that's what it looks like.
I've read through a myriad of posts on these and other forums and tried everything I could find that seemed applicable to my problem. I outline everything I did below, reproducing the exact commands I use and the output I get in chronological order leading to the present moment (I put "//" before my comments to help distinguish them from output). I apologize for the disgusting length of this post; I wanted anyone willing to h
Keyboard Not Working Login Screen Ubuntu 13.10
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 15, 2014
I have Ubunu 13.10 installed on a Macbook Pro 5,1. When I turn the computer on the keyboard does not work when I try to login in as the administrator. When I login as the guest user then log out and try to login as the default other user/ administrator it works.
I tried the solution of going to System Settings/Language Support/Keyboard Input Method System and changing it to "none" rebooted and that did not work. I tried "Ibus" and that did not work either.
Does anyone have a solution?
Alternate login screen for xrdp?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 27, 2013
Hi, I'd like to know if there's any alternate login screen available for XRDP. I know you can change the images, which I have, but I'm still presented with a boxy looking dialog.
I've come across this on http://os4fun.wordpress.com/2012/07/...the-smt-serve/
Which looks a little bit more intriguing to look at. Apparently it's the default configuration on another platform, does that mean it's possible to have the same looking login box on an Ubuntu-based machine?
I'd really like to be able to have the look of the Ubuntu Ambience theme when logging in remotely, is this possible?
Desktop crashes and kicks user back to graphical login screen on start GNU Emacs w/X
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 6, 2013
$ uname -a
Linux foobar-1 3.2.0-45-generic #70-Ubuntu SMP Wed May 29 20:12:06 UTC 2013 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
Distro is Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
More detail on the problem: Same thing happens on start VirtualBox and on start Skype. All these programs used to work before I switched to the proprietary NVidia driver (which I did in order to get support for multiple concurrent graphical user desktops). Now, switching back to the open-source one does not help.
Happens on Gnome desktop as well as Unity desktop. Changing users does not affect the issue. I have used `sudo unity --reset` and that seems to work, although it hangs on 'run key'. I have also used the Compiz dialog to reset to defaults. No indication of any issue in dmesg or in X.org logs.
It's bad when you can't start Gnu Emacs on your Linux box's graphical desktop.
