Title: Joggler orbiter tinkering
Post by: purps on March 29, 2013, 02:20:47 pm
I am experimenting with running an orbiter on my joggler running UNR, using Foxi's wiki page as a guide http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Joggler#Create_directory_structure

I am trying to...

Code: [Select]
chown -R joggler:joggler /usr/pluto
chown -R joggler:joggler /var/log/pluto

...on the core, but it is giving me the error:

Code: [Select]
chown: invalid user: `joggler:joggler'
Have attempted to create the group "joggler" with "groupadd -f joggler", but no joy. I also tried creating the user "joggler" as I could not see it listed in /etc/passwd, but it asks for a new password of course, and didn't know what to put.

Am I right in saying the user "joggler" and the group "joggler" need to exist, or have I misunderstood the chown command?

Cheers,
Matt.

Purps,

Speaking with my sysadmin hat on, you'll need to create the user joggler first on the core, using the password that you used to create the joggler user on the Joggler device.  A group jogger will be created automatically, based on the standard behavior for useradd. Then chown will work properly.  You may need to play with making the UID's and GID's match on the joggler and the core, if there are going to be shared files over NFS; otherwise you may run into permission issues.  This is based on a quick read of the wiki page; I don't own a joggler.  

HTH!

Do not change the owner to joggler on the core. Do it on the image that should end up on the joggler. I've modified the instructions. Someone somehow put it ssh to core, which is utterly nonsense.

Bother! I thought it was a bit weird that I was doing that on the core.

Cheers,
