Debian Configuration :: Vanishing Boot Messages ?

May 4, 2010

An issue that has been hassling me for years since I started using Linux (Debian!) is related to the boot messages that quickly scroll on the video during the boot process. The main hassle is related to the fact that I cannot get a log of those messages. The second hassle is due to the fact that with my brand new netbook (Toshiba NB200) I cannot even stop the scroll and go back along the message stream with SHIFT+PageUpDown to understand what's going on. Of course I know that I can get a log of the boot process with 'dmesg' but I get the feeling that the very first lines show some problem I cannot grab at all.

Debian Configuration :: Disabling Boot-time Messages?

Jul 17, 2011

I'm trying to stop all boot time messages from appearing -- basically I'd like to have a simple blank screen from grub to xdm.

I tried everything -- used the "quiet" option in grub's config, added dmesg -n 1 to rc.local, changed console=ttySx, set kernel.printk in sysctl.conf to 4 1 1 7, and even eradicated rsyslogd altogether... to no avail. I still see all sorts of messages on my screen.

Debian Configuration :: Can't Receive System Messages

Mar 2, 2010

I have a small LAN. I am in the process of installing a Debian Lenny/Squeeze system into the LAN. I want to send and receive system messages using rwalld and wall.I can send a system message from my Debian system to another box using rwall. I can send a local message within the Debian box using wall in a console.I cannot send a local message using wall Konsole in KDE 3.5.x. The KDE Write daemon fails to provide any pop-up window./usr/bin/wall is installed from the bsdutils package and is set to -rwxr-sr-x.

The ktalkd package is installed. The KDE control center shows a configuration option in Internet & Network settings called Local Network Chat.When not in X, mesg is set to y at the console. After starting KDE and I open Konsole, mesg is always set to n. I don't know how this setting toggles. Further, setting mesg to y in Konsole has no effect on getting wall to work.mesg is set to y when I run xterm in KDE. Then wall works within that terminal window. However, the KDE Write daemon does not see the message in xterm.When I send a message from another system to the Debian system using rwall, xterm receives the message but not Konsole or the KDE Write daemon.

Ubuntu :: How To Hide Or Disable Messages During Start-up And Logout In 9.10

Jun 16, 2010

I am building a live USB key using Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic. No upgrades have been applied. It is as it came in the ISO that was distributed.I would like to create a smooth start-up/logout process where no messages pop up (even briefly) that might confuse someone who is not very tech savvy. I'm referring to the messages that show up right before the login screen during start-up (between usplash and xsplash I think) that say:

"Starting early crypto disks ..."

and also the messages that show up on a black screen right after you initiate logout. It seems to sometimes show system messages including some error messages that can confuse users.Does anyone know of a way to hide, redirect, or disable these messages? I just don't want cryptic messages popping up even briefly that are going to confuse casual users. I'm stuck with version 9.10 since I've made some custom mods and would rather not redo them for a new release.

Ubuntu :: Hide Verbose Messages On Restart / Shutdown?

Jul 8, 2010

I have Lucid installed on two PCs. The PCs are identical except one uses the on-board Intel G33 video controller while the other has an nvidia 210 video card attached. The nvidia PC restarts/shuts down without showing any console text messages, however the Intel based PC has the following problem. The software on both machines is identical (except for the nvidia packages).

On restart or shutdown on the intel based PC plymouth gives way to a console for 2 or 3 seconds showing the following (none of which are errors as far as i know)...

Broadcast Message from root@xyz-desktop
(unknown) at 11:44 ...
The System is going down for restart NOW!
* Deactivating Swap ...
* Unmounting weak filesystems ...

Debian Configuration :: Get Cron To Send Messages In First Place Instead Of Root?

Mar 25, 2010

The system crontab (/etc/crontab) uses the same format, except that the username for the command is specified after the time and date fields and before the command.


Every hour, I get an e-mail complaining about the first line of the crontab:


I get the same complaint from the other entries: It looks to me as if cron, or anacron, is trying to execute the user (root) as a command. Predictably, the shell doesn't like it, so barfs and triggers an e-mail about it. Why is this not doing what the man page says it should do? The 2nd problem I believe is related to exim, not cron. The e-mails I'm getting above are being bounced from my ISP because they are directed to, rather than my regular e-mail address. When the message bounces, it bounces to my regular e-mail address. In /etc/aliases, I have root: [URL]... and in etc/email-addresses I have root: [URL]... Adding the entry to /etc/email-addresses allowed the bounce to find me because the sender's address is [URL]... but how can I get cron to send these messages to me in the first place, instead of root?

Debian Configuration :: Shorewall (Shoreline?) Firewall Up And Running, But It's Logging To /var/log/messages?

Jan 29, 2011

I've got a Shorewall (Shoreline?) firewall up and running, but it's logging to /var/log/messages. I'd much rather have it logging to another location e.g. /var/log/firewall but can't find (a clear enough) explanation on how to do this. Apparently, it varies greatly depending on the distro, the kernel, and the version of Shorewall that is running. You'd think it would be something as simple as setting a path in a config file, but apparently not. I'm running a stock Lenny kernel on the firewall machine. It comes with version 4.0.15 of Shorewall.

May 28, 2010

Debian Configuration :: No Sshd On Startup (lenny)?

May 30, 2010

I tried recompiling a new kernel yesterday (2.6.34) on my debian sarge box, but I ran into multiple difficulties. These difficulties forced me to do a double dist-upgrade to lenny. The new kernel was (seemingly) compiled without any hiccups, and I ran dpkg -i on both the image and the header debs. They didn't install properly into grub, but I think I managed to fix that manually.Next thing I did was rebooting the server. It refused to come back up. Luckily my ISP has recovery tools, so I managed to switch back to the old kernel. It boots just fine with that kernel, but the problem is that there is no ssh daemon running! I can access it through ftp and do limited jobs through php, but nothing big, as I have no root access.Now, enough backstory. My question is: How can I install openssh-server onto the server remotely? I cannot access the server personally, as the server is in a completely different country.

Debian Configuration :: Plymouth Does Not Show Up At Startup

Oct 25, 2010

I've been trying to setup Plymouth on Debian Squeeze, but have only been partially successful: Plymouth works with shutdown (i.e. I see Plymouth after I tell the computer to shut down), but not when I start up my computer (before it reaches GDM). In other words, Plymouth seems to work with my graphics, but for some reason does not show up at startup (not even briefly, as far as I can tell). I've searched the forums and followed this advice, as well as the instructions found here: [URL] but neither of those worked. I'm running Debian Testing (Squeeze) on a Thinkpad X41, which uses "Intel Corporation Mobile 915GM/GMS/910GML Express Graphics Controller" for graphics.

Debian Configuration :: Disable Wireless At Startup?

Dec 22, 2010

I've been using Debian since the early days of Lenny being testing as OS on the same Computer. Its a Acer Aspire Notebook with switches for wireless and bluetooth. While booting Lenny my wireless and bluetooth stayed off as long as I didn't switch them on. But since squeeze they get activated ( you can see it by looking at the LED's ) the moment after the grub screen. I now do have to turn bluetooth and wireless off by hand everytime which is quite annoying since I mostly use eth0.

how to disable bluetooth and wireless per default in a way I can simply turn them back on by using the switch?

Debian Configuration :: Startup Program Screen Too Small?

Oct 10, 2015

The "System Settings/Startup Programs" window is large enough but the "Program" column is too narrow and it cannot be resized. The window can be dragged to make it larger but not the individual columns. It looks like a Java listbox with "Enabled = false" set. This occurs in Debian8 64 bit and also in Mint 17 and Mint LMDE2. I am surprised nobody else has raised the issue. I have a basic setup with 22" screen and 1680 x 1050 resolution. It occurs with Nouveau and NVidia drivers. It is not a critical bug so I have coped with it for 2 years but it would be nice to see it fixed. Unfortunately I could not upload a screen shot as "board attachment quota has been reached".

Debian Configuration :: Disable Gdm3 Startup Beep?

Jun 10, 2011

I got a problem with a Dell Latitude E5500. I can not disable the hardware beep after the gdm3 login screen has been loaded. All alsa beeps and system sounds are disabled and/or muted. I also tried setterm -blength 0, xset -b in startup scripts. They disable terminal-beeps, but not the halt or the gdm login beep. I tried wasting around with the gconftool, but nothing happened. It is an annoying sound. If you use, init 0 to shut down, no beep comes up.

Programming :: BASH Scripting: Hide Plain Text Passwords

Jun 15, 2010

I was wondering if there is way to hide passwords in bash scripts. For example: I have to write a script to export a full ldap structure, and I'm using the ldapsearch -y passwordfile, where password file is a plain text file that contains the password. Is there a way to hide the password from that file?

I was thinking to remove the r attribute from the file and before the script is lunched to put the attribute back, but is not a good solution, the same with immutable attribute.
