BHuxleynareshov: dont give them access to /etc/passwd /etc/shadow or passwd
grknight: k
nareshovBHuxley, what happens when he does `sudo -s` ?
SwifTnareshov: only allow the necessary commands
nareshovoh
nice
BHuxleynareshov: hMm, without not giving them access to /bin/bash and the other local shells, that would be slighty tricky...
I've never wanted to give a shell to someone that I didn't trust not to change the root password
not a root one atleast..
nareshovoh hehe
tulcodBHuxley: plus, it's useless. when you have 1 root command, you'll soon have access to others.
nareshov: giving someone sudo access to nano means giving access to changing passwords, as you can edit /etc/sudoers
SwifTthat's why you should only allow the necessary commands... who are well checked for possible privilege escalations (like editing files etc.)
tulcodnareshov: pretty much the only exception is applications which just need low level access to hardware, such as some nmap features
nareshovhmm
BHuxleytulcod: ... I only give my web developers access to commands that dont let them access sensitive data - i guess i dont understand the premise of what is trying to be accomplished
brokenCan someone take a look at my make.conf too see if I have everything thats neccessary there at least? I'm going to emerge --newuse to update my computer.
tulcodbroken: bad use flags will never render your installation unusable afaik
Sup3rkiddobroken, sure...pastebin it
brokenok hoold on a sec.. nopaste has to emerge..AGAIN.
tulcodbroken: and it also depends on your hardware, obviously. but because you're asking if it's okay, you are wondering, thus you've reaserched everything you set, thus it's all ok:)
brokentulcod: well yes, im using profuse .. but some of the thigns i have no idea what they mean..and there are too many.
shimiHi all. I am having a _very_ weird problem. I have cron (vixie) running, with all the default cron setup, plus some jobs in my own users. It's a machine that I installed just two days ago. Today, I saw, that for a very good amount of hours, jobs simply didn't run. Not the run-crons, and not a job that I have scheduled as */30 * * * *. The cron process seems to exist and the state of it is Ss. Machine is a Dual Core Xeon 3GHz with HT enabled (sys sees 4
cores). Any ideas what can cause this?
tulcodbroken: lack of set use flags in your make.conf will not cause inusability
broken: worst case scenario is that you have some useles support
brokentulcod: lol, yea like not being able to hear music on the net..
tulcodbroken: adding support for something is never causing inusability, exceptions are for the kernel.
brokenWell here it is for anyone whos intrested: http://rafb.net/p/lAEA1z66.html
:)
Chat452shimi, so vixie went on strike?
tulcodbroken: it's fine
broken: hm... though...
shimiyou can say that. a few hours ago, it executed processes again, and since then, a few hours already, again, nothing...
tulcodbroken: have you touched CHOST/
*?
Chat452its nice to not have flash installed
don't get all those annoying flash ads
soloslingercan anyone suggest a decent mp3 player to start with in gentoo?
brokentulcod: no not at all
