But idea is that this PC will work without operator so driver must be loaded automatically. As i realized the solution is to make script but when i try google it shows me how and where to put this script but not how to make it. Also i've tried to put tmk1553b.ko to /lib/modules/2.6.32-5-686/kernel/drivers/misc but it doesn't work.
Built a machine w/ i5-4440 & gtx 960. I installed xserver-xorg-video-intel & xserver-xorg-video-nouveau. Xorg -configure fails, so I added xorg.conf I found online, makes no difference. xrandr can't open display. startx of course fails.
Backstory: My plan was to dual boot sid + stable as fallback with shared partition. First installed stable and whether connected to mobo or gfx card, I couldn't get login on tty, it would just hang on errors. So I installed sid (this time using lvm to hopefully make partitioning easier) and while I get the "failed to load nouveau" errors on mobo, gfx card gives me a login screen.
I have a PC104 running debian. I have 3 hard drives (in addition to the one booting) mounted in fstab by UUID. I use the options defaults,error=remount-ro. However, this means that when I boot with the hard drives not attached, I have to press Ctrl-D to bypass when the boot discovers the drives are missing. Is there a timeout commandoption I can add to fstab so that it automatically continues booting even if the hard drives are not attached? I could not find anything on a timeout command. (I tried adding timeout=1000 but no-random guess)
My wireless in fresh Squeeze install would not connect automatically. I have to click on the network manager and enter the root password to connect every time I start up. I have "Enable Networking" and "Enable Wireless" checked in the Network Manager.
I'm running squeeze testing. I have noticed an issue with the way NetworkManager acts when the wireless connection is dropped. I believe it should automatically reconnect but it immediately puts up a dialog requesting me to enter the wifi password. This dialog stays indefinitely until I intervene and click "OK" (the password from the previous successful connection is still there). I would think that something as basic as wireless networking should not require 24 hour human interaction to stay connected. I have considered a cron job checking the network status and restarting it if necessary, but there is a configuration change or something else I can do to resolve this.
I would like my CPU to be overclocked, while retaining frequency scaling capabilities. The CPU is a Core2 Quad Q6700, with a stock speed of 2.67 GHz. In my BIOS, I can manually increase the FSB, but if SpeedStep (EIST) is enabled, the increased FSB is ignored by Linux, and the max speed remains 2.67 GHz. If I disable SpeedStep, then the CPU successfully runs at the higher speed I would expect, but does not scale down when under low load. As it is now, I am only running it at 2.8 GHz.Does CPUFreq *require* SpeedStep to be enabled in the BIOS?
I have to use pppoe because my ISP uses service names, and as far as I know the only program which lets me input a service name is pppoe (inside the pppoe.conf file). Networkmanager is buggy because it tends to disappear from the panel periodically and, worse, it doesn't reconnect (although the option is selected, it does reconnect only once).
So, for peace of mind I open a superuser terminal and enter "pppoe-start" and "pppoe-stop" to have everything I want (reconnects automatically, etc.). Now the question is: how can I have pppoe-start run at startup, automatically, without entering superuser mode, and without having a terminal open for this? Using Debian Testing (Wheezy).
I have recently rented a VPS server so I can run a VPN. Unfortunately, I did not get far in this [URL] ....., I have encountered this error:
Code: Select allxaver@xaver:/$ sudo modprobe tun ERROR: could not insert 'tun': Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)
So I googled this error and found this: [URL] ....., however response of mine VPS was:

I have happily been booting debian through grub2 by chain loading it with efi (rEFIt), until today, and now get to begin another learning experience I've been using linux for a while, and kept seeing the guides for splitting up /, /var, /tmp, /usr, and /home, into different partitions, so I did just that when I switched from Ubuntu to Debian (I've realized that this was a little bit pointless because I formated them all as ext4, but at least it acts as a safety for mission critical drives when I overfill /home. I unfortunately didn't give /tmp enough space, and it kept crashing SimpleScan so I decided to use gparted to resize it.
The operation went alright as far as I can tell, and was straight forward because there was some free space behind it so I only had to append the partition. I synced the master boot record through rEFIt as usual, but when I booted the linux partition grub did load, and only a blank screen is presented. I eventually figured out I could use the gparted live cd to boot back into debian, and have been screwing around for a while with grub commands trying to figure out how to allow rEFIt to successfully boot GRUB on its own again. I ran grug-mkconfig to replace my /boot/grub/grub.cfg file and have rebooted but that did not help.
I tried reinstalling grub and grub-common with apt-get, but I didn't purge configuration settings for fear of losing something important. My current focus is on the command grub-install. I think i just need to run this command with the /boot device, like su - root; grub-install /dev/sda1 or some thing like that. wipe out the MBR on /dev/sda1, or screw up what good configuration is left in grub, so I want to make sure that I'm using the right /dev. Currently the gparted output looks like this:
/dev/sda1: fat32 - GPT (gpt from fdisk, gparted shows EFI with the boot flag) /dev/sda2: hfs+ - MacOSx /dev/sda3: ext4 - /root
how the gnome live gparted disk would have been able to boot. I have access to a hard drive so I'll probably end up making backup images of as many of the partitions as I can, and then try more drastic bashing around, but if anyone has any suggestions/wisdom they could offer while I'm researching solutions I'd appreciate it. I eventually want to try to axe my osx partition and boot directly from GRUB2-EFI so I figure it is worth the investment in time to get to know grub a little bit more intimately.
I've recently been trying to restore a Debian installation back to it's previous state after a serious operation system crash. Efforts are largely going well however I've run into problems since reinstalling Wine. Previously I could execute a Windows executable by simply entering ./executable.exe in the bash shell but this no longer seems to work as now I have to include the "wine" command in front of the executable. how to configure Debian to automatically use Wine to execute using the ./executable.exe format?
After a hiatus I found my machine to be down, but upon turning it on I get significant errors and dropped into emergency mode (see below). This machine wasn't very up-to-date to begin with, so I'm having difficulty determining the order in which to proceed. A couple naive checks and updates on my part are not working. The file system appears to be intact enough to "cd" around and "ls" to see that my files are all (seemingly) there. But the kernel modules aren't loading which is, you know, a problem.
The state I find it in is that it will begin booting to Linux 3.2 (which I know is no longer supported in testing, see below where I tried to update to 3.16), but fails quickly and puts me into emergency mode
Loading, please wait... megasas: INIT adapter done systemd: Failed to insert module 'autofs4' systemd: Failed to open /dev/autofs: No such file or directory systemd: Failed to initialize automounter: No such file or directory systemd: Failed to set up automount Arbitrary Executable File Formats File System Automount Point.
...Then several drives show up as clean....
Running "journalctl -xb" shows that it can't mount the module even though it's there on the disk: ... systemd-modules-load: could not open moddep file '/lib/modules/3.2.0-4-amd64/modules.dep.bin' ... systemd-modules-load: Failed to lookup alias 'firewire-sbp2': Function not implemented ... systemd-modules-load: could not open modeep file '/lib/modules/3.2.0-4-amd64/modules.dep.bin' ... systemd-modules-load: Failed to lookup alias 'loop': Function not implemented
And yet, if I 'ls' that modules.dep.bin file, it's right where it's supposed to be, for the appropriate architecture and everything.
After that (in the journalctl output), it shows several things start up, but systemd-modules-load.service fails: .. systemd: systemd-modules-load.service: main process exited, code=exited, status=1/FAILURE .. systemd: systemd-modules-load.service: Failed to start Load Kernel Modules
...and lots of things fail from systemd-udevd: failed to execute '/lib/udev/socket:@/org/freedesktop/hal/udev_ev_event': No such file directory.
I tried updating via apt to the Linux 3.16.0 kernel, but grub wasn't finding it in a way that effects the boot process, and no appropriate "vmlinuz-" file appears with the others on the boot partition. So, I tried switching to grub2 but the update-grub command produces many errors.... For now, grub2 still (attempts to) load the old kernel (3.2) with the same results as I was getting with the old grub-legacy.
Regarding the module-loading features, running "lsmod" shows about 30 lines:
Module ext3 mbcache jbd dm_mod usbhid hid
...I'm at the limit of what I know to check and/or try.
I built a kernel-module for a new usb wifi-card. This worked well and resulted in a 8821au.ko-file. But now I'm trying to load this kernel module since half an hour and it doesn't work. I copied the ko-file into /lib/modules/3.16.0-4-amd64/kernel/drivers/edimax. If I just type
Code: Select allsudo modprobe 8821au
I get a
Code: Select allmodprobe: FATAL: Module 8821au not found..
But if I enter the full path inside the /lib/modules/3.16.0-4-amd64-folder:
to /etc/modules but this also doesn't seem to work. When booting I get an error-message, but it's too fast to read it and I can't find the right log-file, where the booting-part with the "[ OK ]"-messages is reported.
So my driver is ready, the onliest thing which I can't get working is loading it as a kernel-module.
I have installed splashy from sid. Rest of the system is squeeze, and put the parameter "vga=791 splash quiet" in the kernel parameter...
Unfortunately this is not working properly. It does load the splash image as intended, but it then just hangs here, and does not load the OS unless I press enter. (I asume that something is hangning, but I cannot see the shell from here, and ctrl+f2-f6 is not working so I cannot get to any tty).
Then after boot, I can only see the / partition. But not /home. Duing a fdisk -l shows up the partitions, so they are there, just not mounted at boot?
If I press F2 at boot, before the image shows up, it does actually boot without any issues at all. It must be something with the image loading that is causing this.
A little background: CCNA and A+ I have preformed this task on Cisco routers Linux for 5+ years, mostly with Debian (mostly casual, a few production situations) I need to setup a linux box with Load Balancing over a cable line 8mb down, 1mb up connection and a T1 line. If this isn't possible, at the very least I need Failover (which I have admittedly not researched as fully.) I know Failover is possible, but I would really love to double my upload bandwidth as we host a small website here. Is load balancing over uneven connections possible on Debian?
Side question: If I host a website, when users connect and get responses over 2 Public IP's, what would be the reaction on the users side? Would it get filtered and or blocked by a firewall?
My university has a secure wireless network that has the following specs: WPA2, 1st Authentication TTLS, 2nd Authentication PAP, Encryption CCMP or AES, Thawte_Premium_Server_CA certificate and username and password.
I have never gotten this to work with wicd. First of all, wicd does not have a default template for this configuration. This led me in the past to quickly install Network-Manager (on top of XFCE...). While this has worked for me just fine. Recently I found out that this functionality is possible in wicd by creating your own template. So I did and here it is!
name = WPA2 Enterprise TTLS author = Andres Cimmarusti version = 1
I did everything outlined here: [URL] (that is I saved the file as wpa2-ttls and then added this entry to the active file in /etc/wicd/encryption/templates/).
Sadly wicd's gui does not load my template!, the logs show no errors!...it simply refuses to take it. I cannot see any mistake in the above... do you?Is this some debian bug perhaps?This is the most important issue for me, before accepting to use wicd instead of NM.
Now, my issue is that I have no access to ethernet in my apartment so I need to rely on wifi for my install. But during the install when it is looking for the network hardware it never sees the TP-Link Dongle and never asks if I wan to load the firmware. I even tried it with the CD image that has the non-free drivers included but it never asks for the drivers. Any other distro, like Linux Mint 7.3, sees the dongle fine.
So is there a way to force load the realtek-firmware drivers during install?
Any attempt to load a webpage gives a Cannot Resolve Hostname error. i can ping [URL], but cannot load the page. However, the page will load by typing its IP address [URL] I have been trying to figure this out for days. cat /etc/resolv.conf nameserver 192.168.1.254

I am in serious situation involving PPTP protocol VPN in Debian 8 Jessie stable. I recently became a paid VPN subscriber. Using PPTP; Is there a way to automatically route all traffic through ppp0? Im getting the vpn service killed (ip address goes back to normal unmasked state) whenever there is a power outage (modem reset) and there are alot of those where I live, Im going to get astabilizer and I need a software solution for the situation as well. Theres gotta be a way to route all traffic through the VPN route ppp0 . I tried adding persist and maxfail 0 to the pptp config file but it did not do what i wanted.
