Debian Configuration :: Squeeze X Login Stopped Working - Console Works

Mar 30, 2011

I have been using my system for couple of weeks, and normally update software when the icon is displayed on top bar (gnome). Last couple of days there were updates for X, and I am not sure whether that is the cause of my problem. Once bootup, I get the login screen. When enter the password the login screen keep coming back. there is no error about any password issue, or anything. It keeps prompt me to enter the password.

I could login back the following way.

1. ctrl + alt + F1 , and login with the same username/pwd as for X
2.change to root
3.pkill gdm3
4.exit from root to user privilege
5. startx

The system starts X correctly and no login screen is displayed. I could use the system as usual.

The only thing I did custom to my system was upgrading to the latest kernel (2.6.38) using the source. This was to get support for my hardware, but that was about a month ago. I do not see anything in /var/log (X, demesg etc).

Debian Configuration :: Squeeze Backport Kernel 2.6.38 - Only A Console Login Prompt No GUI

May 22, 2011

I installed 2.6.38 from backports. It boots OK, and among the start-up messages it says it has started kdm, but then it offers only a console login prompt, no GUI. I assumed (perhaps optimistically?) that newer kernels would be backward-compatible, and that any dependencies on other software would be enforced by the package mechanisms. Running amd64, Squeeze, KDE.

Ubuntu :: Stopped Working Again - Boots To A Console Login Prompt?

Mar 6, 2010

Ubuntu has stopped booting correctly. Now it shows the Ubuntu logo and then, instead of GDM, it shows a console login prompt. How do I go about troubleshooting this?'m in Windows XP (which I like a lot better than Ubuntu, because it actually works) but all my files and work are on my Linux partition.

Debian Configuration :: Squeeze Grub2 Made Console Font Green

Apr 1, 2010

After an update on squeeze about a week or two ago, my console font turned green. I'm not exactly sure of the timing, because I switch between lenny and squeeze, and some time passed between the update and the reboot in squeeze.

During the update, I was asked if I wanted to keep my altered /etc/grub.d/00_header or take the package maintainer's version. I took the PM's version, knowing I'd lose my edit (set gfxpayload=1024x768x16). When I add that line to the new 00_header, run update-grub and reboot, the console font is the size I want, but it's a dull green. Reminds me of my first computer. How do I get it back to white and keep the 1024x768 resolution?

Currently booting with grub-legacy and chainloading grub2. If I boot entirely with grub-legacy, and pass vga=791, the console font will be white. It doesn't matter which kernel I use. Currently, I'm running 2.6.32-3-686. Same behavior exists if I use 2.6.30-2-686. If I use 1024x768x8 I get a dull gray instead of dull green.

Debian Configuration :: Console Font Size Under Squeeze - Grub Screen Is Very Tiny

May 17, 2011

My Squeeze installation has the horrific 80x25 line display, and I cannot stand it. I know it can do better, because the grub screen is very tiny. I ran dpkg-reconfigure console-setup, but the offerings there aren't much better. I don't know what happened to the good ol' days of grub when all you had to do was pass vga=791 to the kernel to get a decent console size... but it seems they are gone.

I don't really understand this new v2 grub... I don't know why it was necessary to change how it was configured, when it seemed to work so exquisitely. how I would accomplish the functional equivalent of passing vga=791 (1024x768@75hz) to the kernel in grub

Debian :: Nagios Web Interface Stopped Working After Squeeze Upgrade

Mar 5, 2011

I recently updated to squeeze following the Debian release note steps, and most everything went smoothly. However, I'm now unable to get into the Nagios web interface. The service is still running and sends email notifications of issues as usual, but logging into the web interface gives me a 403 Forbidden error.

Debian Configuration :: Boot Login As Root In Squeeze?

Feb 12, 2011

Before I ask I know what I'm asking is not recommended.

On Lenny It was possible to change the boot login to permit logins as root

I can't find how to do that since I installed Squeeze.

Debian Configuration :: Root Password In Console Not Working?

Sep 4, 2011

Reinstalled Debian Squeeze (64bit/gnome) on my Notebook using Netinstall. Everything worked like always but in the setup instead of typing in a root password as asked to i just pressed enter (in the hope of not having to type in a pw in the console later, just having to press enter then)

When i needed rootpw to install some software (using SoftwareDownloader) the normal loginpw seemed to work, but not in the console.
ari@HP625:~$ su -

Debian :: Login Via SSH - Bash Autocomplete Stopped Working

Feb 3, 2011

For some reason my bash autocomplete stopped working. I get the error when I try to cd into a directory, pressing <tab> for autocomplete:
cd A-sh: <( compgen -d -- 'A' ): No such file or directory
Autocomplete works for the root user and for the other user on the machine, just not logged in as this user. The .bashrc file looks fine to me, and I didn't make any changes to it to even cause the bash autocomplete to stop working (as far as I know).

# enable programmable completion features (you don't need to enable
# this, if it's already enabled in /etc/bash.bashrc and /etc/profile
# sources /etc/bash.bashrc).
if [ -f /etc/bash_completion ]; then
. /etc/bash_completion
fi
What else could cause autcomplete to stop working? I log in via ssh, btw.

Debian Configuration :: Ssh Randomly Stopped Working On Server?

Mar 15, 2010

I'm in somewhat of a sticky situation. ssh has just randomly stopped working on my server after a power failure. Everything else that doesn't rely on ssh is still working fine though. It can still receive mail and everything, just no ssh.Background on the server, running debian etch on a PPC machine.ssh is (supposed to be) running on port 2000. Even if I am physically logged into the machine I can't log in with ssh -p 2000 user@127.0.0.1.
I can ssh to and from any other machine on my network (the server can even ssh into another machine). So it isn't my network causing issues.It seems like the port 2000 is completely closed, if nmap the server's IP address I get PORT STATE SERVICE

25/tcp open smtp
80/tcp open http
110/tcp open pop3

Debian Configuration :: Wireless Not Working On Squeeze?

Feb 14, 2011

I am moving over to debian from ubuntu, and the latest install is to an acer aspire one netbook, the wireless card seems to be working and I can see available networks and even connect to mine (with WPA encryption) via the gnome network manager, however opening a browser or pinging both local and external machines all fail. its as if the OS does not not know to use the card. The wired works fine.

If memory serves the card is identified by lspci as Atheros AR5007.

There is no reference to wlan0 in etc/network/interfaces.

I do not have that system on now and have to leave for work, but I can post any further info from conf files etc as required when i get home tonight... Just thought I'd post a quick description in case I'm missing something obvious...

Debian Configuration :: Upgraded To 2.6.32 => Home Gateway Stopped Working

Feb 3, 2010

I was running 2.6.26 and I've recently upgraded to 2.6.32-trunk-amd64 along with other packages (mostly dependencies)... which possibly involved the network stack.

After this upgrade my home gateway stopped working and I'm clueless to where the problem may be.

I can see that the iptables are still there when I type:

iptables -t filter -L -v -n -x --line-numbers
iptables -t nat -L -v -n -x --line-numbers

Debian Configuration :: ATI RS690 - Get Compiz Working On Squeeze?

Jul 23, 2011

This morning i installed Debian Squeeze and I'm sure it that was a good choice! I got my wireless stick to work (Linksys: Wusb600n v2), installed Chromium, VLC and some other stuff... and ye. I want to get Compiz working on my system! I'm not sure that my current drivers can deal with it, thought. I'm not good at Linux and I don't know what should I install (if there is something) so that I can have get better performance from my video-card. I made HardInfo report of my system. What are my options? How can I make the performance better and, maybe, run Compiz?

Debian Configuration :: Plex Media Server Suddenly Stopped Working

Jan 27, 2016

My plex media server suddenly stopped working after years of no hassle use. This is the output of cat /proc/version = Linux version 3.2.0-4-amd64 (debian-kernel@lists.debian.org) (gcc version 4.6.3 (Debian 4.6.3-14) ) #1 SMP Debian 3.2.65-1+deb7u2

My problem is similar to this forum thread viewtopic.php?f=5&t=121945 where I can get it to start by running Code: Select all/usr/sbin/start_pms & but it's not my normal server configuration. I added a couple files to it and it seems to work except it doesn't start when I reboot. I have to run that command again.This is the init script I've been running for years...

Code: Select all----
#!/bin/sh
### BEGIN INIT INFO
# Provides:          plexmediaserver
# Required-Start:    $remote_fs $syslog $networking
# Required-Stop:     

[code]....

My Debian skills are lacking to know how to proceed with troubleshooting what could have happened. Everything else seems fine, I just can't seem to get this application to run at startup or get back my old configuration...

Debian Configuration :: Proprietary Nvidia Drivers Stopped Working After Upgrade

My GNOME system stopped using the proprietary NVIDIA drivers after the recent dist-upgrade to v6.0.1. It was working perferctly before that.

I've tried running the above many times with the same results. I even tried aptitude reinstalling but still the same.

Ubuntu :: Keyboard Has Suddenly Stopped Working In Gnome - Mouse Still Works

Jun 16, 2010

My keyboard has suddenly stopped working in Gnome (Ubuntu 10.4 LTS, Toshiba satellite laptop, P300). It works fine to logon, and with KDE.

The last thing I did before it stopped working was to hold down a shift key for too long, while I was thinking about what I wanted to do. The 'sticky keys' prompt popped up, which I killed. After that the keyboard has died - in *all* applications (e.g. gedit, terminal etc.)

The mouse still works. If I logout of Gnome, it comes alive again to type in the logon password. I had a look in messages, but without any enlightenment.

Debian Installation :: How To Activate Squeeze From Console

Mar 11, 2011

Installed Squeeze from a CD image (lxde) but the desktop environment did not appear, only a text login. Downloaded lxde using aptitude, but haven't a clue as to how to activate it from the console, or anything else other than aptitude, for that matter. Openbox is part of lxde, and with my Lenny I could bring it up from the command line with the command <openbox>; not now. Can't get on to the internet, so am writing this with Damn Small Linux on a CD.

Slackware :: USB Headset - Volume Control On Them Stopped Working - Sound Works - Microphone Doesn't

Oct 29, 2010

When I started using Slackware I've been using USB headset. Everything ran perfectly fine. They got recognized, I could use all of it's functions and so on. Unfortunately volume control on them stopped working so I had to service them, and like in every third world country, yay I need to wait minimum three weeks just so they can press a button and say "Yup, they don't work".

I bought normal headset to use them while other one is getting fixed, and didn't expect any problems with them considering they are "old" technology, normal audio input and output.

Now problem is following, sound works fine but microphone doesn't. Once I managed to "fix" it by switching audio input from mic to something else and then back to mic, now even that doesn't work. Another... "problem" is if I leave my USB webcam plugged in while booting computer, there is no sound at all, ether on line ones or USB ones but I can easily solve that problem by unplugging webcam, rebooting and plugging it back in later.

Now everything ran fine until my computer shutdown while I was sleeping. Don't know why, but it started happening recently, don't see anything smart in logs so I assume its... something, read it could be cache, HDD, temperature and so on but since logs don't write down anything smart... will deal with it some other time.

When I talk I can actually hear myself on the headset, which probably means that they work. If I put mic boost all the way up, I can hear myself perfectly clear, but somehow... seems that that information just doesn't get to Slackware, well it gets somewhat considering that it reacts to me adjusting mic boost on KMix, but everything else... no.

Arecord doesn't record anything, TS register as microphone isn't plugged in at all, skype doesn't get any input ether.

Debian Installation :: Squeeze - Change Grub Password And Console Font Size?

Nov 5, 2010

I'm trying to do is protect the computer against housemates. The standard procedure I do with Lenny:

1. Password protect BIOS.

2. In BIOS, always boot from hard drive. Disable booting from any other device such as USB or CD-ROM.

3. Password protect Grub (v1) using the "password --md5 $1$9MuaA/$5TDLgvmcEiCWNr5W9VaMK1" syntax in my menu.lst file.

With the above precautions in place, [I think] the only way to gain root access to the system is to take the case lid off and proceed to do stuff physically (like set jumpers and/or take out the hard drive). Am I correct? My reasoning for this is, the computer boots -> must boot from HD -> must load Grub -> must go to default menu item since others are protected, and cannot command prompt in Grub without password.

Anyhow, In Squeeze, I was a bit disappointed to find out, after doing a bit of Google-research, that Grub v2 (which is standard on Squeeze now) does not easily support password protecting the Grub menu. Am I correct? Will this issue perhaps be addressed in the Squeeze final release? Is this feature dumb anyways because the Grub password is of no use (i.e. my paragraph above is complete horseradish)?

Another thing I would like to do is change the console font and size back to something more "normal" or "classic", not some crazy tiny font that's only found in totally bleeding edge Linux distrubutions <gasp!>. I found that the Squeeze console font (e.g. when I type Ctrl+Alt+F1) is wicked tiny. I wanna change it to "normal". Grub v2 password and console font config?

Debian Multimedia :: Gpsbabel Now Only Works As Root On Squeeze

Feb 7, 2011

gpsbabel has always been a little awkward to get going, but it works well once it does. Out of the box on Lenny, gpsbabel just gave errors for me reading from a garmin unit, and the required solution was two steps: firstly, remove (and blacklist) the kernel module "garmin_gps". Secondly, add a udev rule like this:SYSFS{idVendor}=="091e", SYSFS{idProduct}=="0003", MODE="0660", group="plugdev" and save this as /etc/udev/rules.d/51-garmin.rules.

Now, I never understood why or how that worked, but it did (on Lenny), straight away, and was listed as gpsbabel's solution here (I notice it now says MODE="666").

Anyway, now I'm on Squeeze and have the same problems again. I've blacklisted garmin_gps again, and it doesn't appear in lsmod.

I've still got my udev rule, but now gpsbabel fails as a normal user with the error:
