ftp access dropped via cap_set_proc

Postby Lancer » Sun Jul 24, 2005 12:57 am

Using Fedora Core 2. When I try to ftp into my machine, I gain access, but am dumped straight away like so...

Connected to xx.xx.xx.xx
220 Hello and welcome.
User (yy.yy.yy.yy;(none)): Lancer
331 Please verify the password.
230 Login successful.
500 OOPS: cap_set_proc
Login failed.

If I go into the host computer and execute (as root)...
[root@localhost root]# modprobe capability

Then I can get in. Apparently a certain kernel module isn't loaded or something.
What are the ways of fixing this so I don't have to do the modprobe thing?

You could stick that modprobe line in a startup script so it'd always be loaded at boot.
