gnome-keyring-daemon maxing out CPU

I'm getting several users having an issue with ssh freezing on them when they first log on in the morning - i.e. they try to initiate an ssh session somewhere and it just hangs. If they reboot everything works fine for the rest of the day, but the same problem happens the next morning. It appears to...

Re: Does CentOS utilize the /tmp directory a lot when doing upgrades?

Ok, thanks for the input.

I had a bunch of CentOS 6 systems that never had the same kind of issues upgrading from version number to version number, but the partitioning scheme on those didn't have /tmp on its own separate partition. I thought maybe I'd found the missing link, but maybe not.

Does CentOS utilize the /tmp directory a lot when doing upgrades?

This is kind of a high level question I've often found when doing version upgrades in CentOS 7, i.e. like when going from CentOS 7.6 to 7.7, or from 7.7 to 7.8, the updated system often becomes flaky and unstable. I've posted questions on this forum before when it happens, but I suspect because the ...

Resetting custom gnome settings back to default

I have a user that is constantly tweaking and customizing his gnome settings, and his machine has become very flaky, freezing up on him all the time, necessitating frequent reboots throughout the day. For the sake of troubleshooting to see if his issues are in fact caused by his endless gnome tweaki...

Re: Redirect SSH logging to a text file, *without* using a commandline switch

Cool, that function thing seemed to work.
If I want to roll that back and get rid of it, how do I delete it? Where is it stored?
Does it work the same if the users standard shell is tcsh?

Re: Redirect SSH logging to a text file, *without* using a commandline switch

Ok, maybe I wasn't clear. I don't want the end user to have to add anything to their commandline to get those debug logs. I was hoping there was a way, like via rsyslog or something, to get ssh debug logs sent to a text file. ssh_config has a LogLevel option but that sends the logs to the users scre...

Redirect SSH logging to a text file, *without* using a commandline switch

How do I get the debug logs you get when using the "-vvv" switch with the ssh command "ssh -vvv username@remotehost" redirected to a text file rather than the users screen? It's very distracting for the user to get all that extra output popping up on their screen whenever using ssh. I'd like this to...

Re: ssh connection issue

I see a ssh-agent process running, but, to tell the truth I'm not that familiar with ssh-agent. I thought it was maybe just some background ssh helper process or something. I've never tried to configure it for anything. What is it supposed to be doing? SELinux is disabled in this environment, so tha...

Re: ssh connection issue

A little more info - If the user goes to terminal 2 (CTRL-ALT-F2) and does ssh to any host, it appears to work fine. When they're using a GUI console, it appears to hang, whether or not they're trying to get an X display back. That seems to imply something going on with the desktop manager I did som...

Re: ssh connection issue

Some more info. I can ssh into these users machines and ssh out to anywhere. I can also ssh into these machines, go to root, then "su -" to the users username and ssh out to the same locations they can't reach. The difference between my connection and theirs is that they are using a GUI manager (eit...
