ubotuFEISTY IS OUT! Party in #ubuntu-release-party - Torrent downloads at http://us.releases.ubuntu.com/kubuntu/feisty/ - Metalinks (use with Aria2 or, under Windows, GetRight) at http://download.packages.ro/metalink/ubuntu/
dystopianraytuxi: do the release notes not provide enough information for you?
tuxiyeha
Bebemycat2Rictoo, how is Feisty? I'm gonna update in a little
RictooI didn;t upgrade yet :D
I'm about to
Bebemycat2lol
alesan^I now have a more general quesiton about Ubuntu. it seems the root user is somewhat missing, but I heard this is the intended behaviour.
dystopianraytuxi: what exactly do you want to know about feisty?
alesan^: that is correct, use sudo
paddy-2kHELP: Has anyone had a problem with the Live CD? All I get is a login screen!
tuxiwhats new etc
dystopianraytuxi: look at the release notes
alesan^how am I supposed to manage this computer from a remote ssh connection? simply sshing the "normal" user and using sudo everytime?
tuxik
dystopianrayalesan^: yes
alesan^: you should never be logging in as root over ssh
Rictooalesan^: It's just for securities sake
security's*
alesan^will sudo *always* ask for the password for each command?
dystopianrayalesan^: no
Rictoono
alesan^dystopianray, why?
Rictooonly have to do it once per shell
alesan^ah once per shell
AusIValesa^: if you really need to be root, login as a normal user and use 'sudo su' and it will give you a session as root until you type exit
alesan^that is acceptable
Rictoohaha
the ubuntu site is HOPRRIBLY laggy
dystopianrayalesan^: your ssh server should not be allowing root logins at all
alesan^AusIV, ok, even if sudo su seem pervert to me :)
AusIVas is the upgrade server
dystopianrayalesan^: sudo -i will give you a root shell
alesan^: or sudo su
alesan^dystopianray, why I ask :) I do not want to start a war only understand the problem
dystopianrayalesan^: it's a matter of security, leaving the root login accessible leaves it vulnerable to dictionary attacks and other ssh attacks
Rictooyeah
and you don't want me haxing you :D
tuxidoes "this is strongly discouraged" mean its good or bad?
