Track File Copy/Write on Linux wihtout samba

Thu, 2018-11-01 15:12

Its possible to log every file that a user copied from or on to his usb drive ?

Since in this case linux is used as work station i do not have the option to use SAMBA.

i've checked syslog and kern.log but they limit to say when and where a usb was mounted.

New Linux User

Thu, 2018-11-01 13:19

Hello all,

I am an IT professional that has moved from Windows to Linux, after testing a few distributions I have finally decided to go with OpenSUSE. Are there any tips that can help me get better at understanding Linux? Would also like to use Linux to develop databases since I am trying to get into that part of IT.

Thank you

Win32 function failed?

Thu, 2018-11-01 06:37

I’m new to this whole thing, so bear with me. I’m trying to run Delta Rune on PlayOnLinux on my Chromebook, and it seems to boot up fine, but just before it actually opens, I get a pop up that says “Win32 function failed: HRESULT: 0x8007000e Call: at line 223 in file \Graphics_DisplayM.cpp”. What would I need to do to solve this? Will Delta Rune even run probably with PlayOnLinux?

screen command

Thu, 2018-11-01 03:07

I support a bunch of RHEL servers. The idiots that built the servers did not install screen, and they won't install it for me.

The last time they did this was with the telnet command, which I use to check for open ports on servers to determine firewall issues. Despite my explanation that I want the Telnet client and not telnetd installed, they would not do it.

So, I got around the telnet issue by getting the telnet rpm for centos and placing it in ~/bin and adding ~/bin to my path.

Does anyone know if I can do the same thing with screen? Is it just it's own executable, or does it have dependencies I would need in order to make it work?
