Debian :: Openssh-server Auto Configuration Fails When Upgrading Lenny To Squeeze?

Sep 10, 2010

I'm in need of a bit of assistance from you Debian users. I have two servers that I thought were identical installations, both running Debian Lenny. Tonight I started the upgrade to Squeeze on both servers and one of them went smooth. The other one started out good but fails on the postconfiguration of openssh-server. I'm getting the following message:

Setting up openssh-server (1:5.5p1-4) ...
Auto configuration failed
2524:error:0E079065:configuration file routines:DEF_LOAD_BIO:missing equal sign:conf_def.c:366:line 67
invoke-rc.d: initscript ssh, action "restart" failed.


It looks like there's an error in one of the files in openssh-server that prohibits it from installing correctly. However on the other server it all went well.

Debian :: After Upgrading To Squeeze - Can't Mount My HDD Partitions Anymore

Oct 23, 2010

Actually, the /root- filesystem still gets mounted, for all the others I get the following message:

When I type

I get:

But this only happens when using my custom kernel ( When I use the kernel which was automatically installed (2.6.32-5-amd64), the problem doesn't occur.

Is there a kernel option I should have turned on?

I checked the UUID-numbers from the error messages with the output of "blkid" - they match. The rootfs is on sda2 (which gets mounted without error) - so I tried applying the fstab mount options of sda2 to the other partitions - same problem still. what makes the root partition so special? Is it because it's defined by grub.cfg?

General :: Upgrading Encrypted System From Lenny To Squeeze

Apr 8, 2011

I'm looking to upgrade from Lenny to Squeeze and would like to check if there's anything special I need to do. Software-wise there's nothing out of the ordinary on the system but, while looking into upgrading, I've read some horror stories regarding encrypted systems. I've only previously installed from fresh.

Here is how my current partitions/filesystems are set out:
. sda1/sdb1 > raid > ext2: boot
. sda2/sdb2 > raid > luks > lvm > ext3: root
. sda2/sdb2 > raid > luks > lvm > ext3: swap
. sda2/sdb2 > raid > luks > lvm > xfs: data
. sdc1/sdd1 > raid > luks > lvm > freespace: vms

Would this just be a standard upgrade, as per these? [URL]. I will be backing up important data before I attempt to upgrade.

Debian :: Lenny Vs Squeeze?

Feb 13, 2011

Now that the stable version of Squeeze is available, the newbie that I am is asking himself this almost existential question: should I get Squeeze or stick to Lenny?Some arguments in favors of Lenny that are coming into his mind are that there is more material, tutorials, in brief, more resources to find as to learn and solve problems.

But is this true and if yes, is it a reason?What about security?There is also this widespread saying that tells to always get the last release for performance and security reasons.Being in this position where I obviously don't have a lot of knowledge and experience to judge myself with all the elements, assessing thoroughly all the differents factors, I would have like to listen you opinion(s) on it.

Debian :: Using A Lenny Package In Squeeze?

Jul 5, 2010

I am currently running Debian Lenny on one of my external HDDs and Debian Squeeze on the other one. I found a package I like in lenny but it seems it has not been added to squeeze (yet). The package is ksirc and i like it because it looks and feels like mIRC that I used in windows. My question is can I install the lenny version on squeeze with out it having an adverse effect? My other question is what do I put into the /etc/apt/sources.list to do this? i now see that ksirc is also available in a sid (unstable) version. Is it safe to install this one to my squeeze distro? and again what do I need to add to my sources.list to do this?

Or could I just download the deb package and install it using dpkg? New to this and just looking for the best way to get a favorite software package.

Debian :: Can't Upgrade From Lenny To Squeeze

Sep 15, 2010

I run into a problem when trying to update from lenny to squeeze. Seems that util-linux fails to install due to some error and that this causes xorg as well as udev to fail. If this is the case then it might be a bug in the post-installation script for util-linux..Am I on the right track or is it completely wrong?

Debian :: Lenny To Squeeze Upgrade

I have a Debian Lenny LAN Gateway machine running shorewall, squid and a source install of ossec in the opt dir. The machine is an Intel Atom based asus hummingbird with no gui. It works well and has been very stable so far. However, i am considering upgrading to Squeeze. Is it feasible to attempt to upgrade this machine, or am i realistically looking at a reinstall and reconfigure with Debian Squeeze over a long weeked?

Debian :: Lenny Or Squeeze With Ati Card

Mar 31, 2010

I have Ati HD 4890 card and I need to get it working with game and 3d-software. Which Debian should I choose to get those ati proprietary drivers to work as stable and easily? Can I get them working all the time with Squeeze/Unstable or should I use Lenny for that? If they work with all of them, I'd like to take Squeeze (or is unstable as stable? name doesn't say that at least). So which one I should choose? Can a newbie get fglrx to work on Squeeze?

Debian :: Lenny Package In Squeeze

Mar 20, 2011

I need libnet0 on a squeeze installation, so I can compile nemesis, which unfortunately has not been an active project. It depends on libnet0, which is not in the squeeze repository.I can compile nemesis, but will it ok to do this the same way with the libnet0 library? Or should I manipulate the /etc/sources.list to be able to install it from the lenny repositories? (this doesn't sound right...Better get the sources? And what happens when I compile it? Can I safely have libnet0 and libnet1 on the same installation?

Debian :: GTK Fonts Extremely Small After Upgrade To Lenny / Sort It?

Jul 23, 2010

I finally got around to upgrading from etch to lenny. After having upgraded, I find that the fonts are extremely small in all gtk applications (iceweasel, abiword, gnumeric, etc.)

Everything looked fine before the upgrade, but now the application fonts in the menu bars, dialogs, etc. are so small as to be unreadable. Also, when I open up gnumeric spreadsheets the fonts in the cells are unreadable. All my X-based applications (rxvt, xfig, xmms, etc.) look just fine, it's just the GTK apps that have the font problems.

Interestingly, web pages themselves render just fine in iceweasel. Also, abiword documents look fine even though the menus, dialogs, etc. are too small to read.

I was able to get a workaround for the application fonts. I put the following in ~/.gtkrc-2.0 code...

At 24 point the fonts are still a bit on the small side, though. And I still have problems reading information in the gnumeric cells.

I use the fvwm window manager without gnome or kde.

Debian :: Lenny Squeeze Upgrade Not Completing

May 28, 2010

when I tried to upgrade my computer from Lenny to Squeeze and it downloaded everything but it's stuck at installing udev which it said it couldn't do on the 2.6.26 kernel. I then did update-grub and Squeeze's 2.6.32 kernel was seen (on grub). I have grub-legacy chainloading (if I'm not mistaken) but I don't have grub2 installed. When I try to boot through the 2.6.32 kernel so that I can complete the upgrade (that is to install udev and have everything working fine), instead of reaching the OS, it says something along the lines of "kernel panick not syncing vfs" and something about "root(hd1,0)".

Debian :: Installing Squeeze/Lenny With WINE?

I have been asked to install Windows 7 on a computer that groans to even run Windows xp properly. As I know, this is like asking for the impossible, I am posting here to have some opinions about the use of Wine in Debian. In particular, I would like to know whether wine makes Debian less secure and more vulnerable to viral, malware, adware, etc infections.

Debian :: Fail To Upgrade From Lenny To Squeeze

Jan 8, 2011

I'm currently using Debian Lenny 5.0.7 and I tryed to upgrade to Squeeze. I followed the instructions from Debian's Guide:

1. I changed my repositories to squeeze in sources.list
2. # aptitude update
3. # aptitude install apt aptitude dpkg
4. # aptitude safe-upgrade

After this last command, the computer kept working for about 7 hours, it consumed 2 gb RAM and 1 gb swap, and in the end aborted with the following message:

I searched around and I found out that this error is somehow related to C/C++ package compilation, but I found nothing specific related to Debian's upgrade.

Debian Installation :: Best Way To Upgrade From Lenny To Squeeze

Feb 7, 2011

A week or so ago, I downloaded the current stable and burned it. (lenny)And on the 5th I started installing and finished on the 6th.I then see squeeze was released LOL.I have started using the system and would rather not start over from scratch.(but I will if it is the *best* way to go)I am coming from Ubuntu but I do know my way around the system...

All the threads I see start off by editing the sources list to change lenny to squeezeIs there an easier way?I've looked for a HOWTO but did not see one.I am not looking to stop any part of the system from upgrading.In ubuntu I have gone from distro to distro, but that option is not offered.I checked "Software Sources" -> Updates I do not see the Ubuntu option of allowing distro updates ot be offered.

Debian :: No Sound In Squeeze / Lenny Chroot

Jul 16, 2010

I recently reinstalled Debian. Previously I had sound working in schroot without a problem. I simply added the user to the audio group ran alsaconf and it worked.Alsaconf has been removed from squeeze so I tried from Lenny. Alsaconf installs but does not find the sound card in the schroot. In deed it seems to be looking for amd64 modules (those of the host system).

Debian :: Upgraded Lenny To Squeeze: Where Did Usbkbd?

Apr 1, 2011

SOLVED:The driver hid-cypress/USB_DEVICE_ID_CYPRESS_BARCODE_3 is included in the latest, but not the default x86 Debian Squeeze 2.6.32-5. Downloading, building and booting a custom kernel solved the problem. I upgraded from Debian Lenny (2.6.26-2) to Debian Squeeze (2.6.32-5) and my barcode scanner stopped working. Based on the details below, I believe the problem is that usbkbd.ko moved.

Under Debian Lenny, I had a similar problem until I set the system to load "usbkbd.ko" at boot. This caused the scanner to show up in /dev/input/by-id/usb-Guest_Barcode_Reader-event-kbd which enabled my application to find and use the scanner with no problems.

Under Debian Squeeze, I'm seeing scanner via lsusb, but not in /dev/input/by-id. Below are the dmesg logs. It appears that Lenny "input" is finding the scanner, but Squeeze is not (presumably because I don't have the right kernel module loaded).

Lenny dmesg:
usb 2-1: new low speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 4
usb 2-1: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
input: Guest Barcode Reader as /class/input/input7
usb 2-1: New USB device found, idVendor=04b4, idProduct=bca1
