Debian Installation :: Can't Install Ia32-libs On Crunchbang Linux

Sep 10, 2014

I'm in the process of installing the latest version of Crunchbang linux on a 64-bit laptop. I would like to run some 32-bit programs, but when I try to install ia32-libs using 'apt-get install ia32-libs', I get the following error messages:

Software :: 32bit Program Still Not Running After Installing Ia32-libs On Debian Squeeze

Jun 1, 2011

I have a Debian Squeeze x64 VPS that I have been renting and I'm having some trouble getting the 32bit version of the Ventrilo server to run. I found alot of people with this problem since Ventrilo only has 32bit Linux servers and this solution seems to work for everybody but me. URL...t=798157 Could it be because of a newer version of ia32-libs is not providing a library that is considered obsolete but Ventrilo still needs?

Red Hat :: RHEL6 Have Ia32-libs (or Equivalent)?

Feb 10, 2011

I recently upgraded my RHEL system from 5.5 to 6.0. When I went to install a 32-bit application I got the normal failure for missing 32-bit libs (/lib/ bad ELF interpreter: No such file or directory). With RHEL5, simply installing ia32-libs takes care of this problem.

In this case, a "yum search ia32-libs" shows no such package exits. So either it doesn't exist or I've got a yum config problem (although I can pull x86_64 packages just fine). If it doesn't exist, is there an equivalent package?

Ubuntu :: Could Not Get Actual CrunchBang Install Files

Apr 10, 2011

I had the problem: "could not download all repository indexes". On Cruncheee (An EEEPC specific Crunchbang distro), which I managed to "fix" by changing the /etc/apt/sources.list file by replacing it with stuff I found in a guide. (Shown at end). Now when I press the Reload button on Synaptic no more errors come up! But when I search for "audacious" (music player) I can only find "crunchbang-audacious-theme", and no actual crunchbang installing things.

What have I actually done to my my sources.list file, did I tell it to look elsewhere for servers with lists of dependencies? Is a "repository" just a place on the internet which has lots of dependencies in it? If I were to just add more and more stuff to my sources.list file and kept pressing "reload" on Synaptic, would I eventually find some packages to install Audacious? What does "sudo apt-get" do? Is that exactly the same as finding something on synaptic and clicking it?

My new sources.list:
## Add comments (##) in front of any line to remove it from being checked.
## Use the following sources.list at your own risk.
deb [URL] dapper main restricted universe multiverse
deb-src [URL] dapper main restricted universe multiverse

General :: Using A Live CD Of CrunchBang To Install Chkdsk To USB Drive?

Jan 17, 2011

My PC has been blue screening since yesterday, and I can't boot into Windows, which the rest of my family needs. I tried to repair from this live CD, but to no avail. If I had a XP Install disk, I'd be OK, but... I don't. I've read around, and it seems that I just need to run chkdsk, but that doesn't run under Linux, and there is no program to do the same under Linux. install and run chkdsk from a USB flash drive?

Ubuntu Installation :: Going From Crunchbang 9.04 Back To Lucid

Apr 28, 2010

I'm planning on going from Crunchbang 9.04 back to Ubuntu Lucid Lynx. My main concern is drivers and such. I have an Asus K40 with 4 gb ram, and Nvidia graphics cards. Last time, I had a disaster with Jaunty. The suspect is Gnome, as Crunchbang works. Is there a chance that I could have issues using the 64-bit 10.04 LTS? I need a stable system. It is going to take me a while to set up the new system so I want to make sure I'm prepared for any issues. I'm doing a clean install. I can pull up hardware types, etc, if need be later tonight.

Debian :: Coexistence Of 64 / 32 Bits Libs In Squeeze

Mar 22, 2011

There are three new "k1DZ 1n the Block" for CAD users in Linux :
Ares Commander Edition

there used to be Varicad, which also runs in 64 bits natively, as well as QCad ( 2D only ) and BRLCAD ( more of a solid modeler than a Drafting program ), both built from source. Those new K1dZ out there are awesome, but they only run in 32 bits. My system is Squeeze 64 Bits and has multilib enabled... i can install the *deb, and it complains about architecture, so i use --force.. default install is in /opt... still this asks for some libraruies which i do have for 64bits, but do not exist for 32...

So my questions are :
Should I install these 32 bits libraries to run the application ( mostly issues related to rendering ) they would land in /usr/lib32/...
But naming convention in apt or synaptic would still refer them by the same name as their 64 bits counterparts. How does apt (synaptic ) deals with this?

I find all this to much of an unnatural thing to do to my Squeeze install just to make an app fit and run. So far I can remove the app using synaptic but I am very reticent about installing those 32 bits specific libs required by the app. I already have the ia32-libs metapackage installed.

Ubuntu :: PHP Libs That Don't Come With The Standard Install?

SUSE :: How To Install X11 Libs SLES-10.1

Jan 21, 2010

I'm trying to install OpenDX(dx)-4.2.0, a scientific graphics visualization tool on Suse Linux 10.1 . But its giving following error:

To resolve this error, I tried to install Mesa OpenGL libraries (mesa-7.5.2). But its not getting installed even after resolving dependencies such as libdrm, dri2proto, libpthread-stubs.

Are there any rpm distributions available for mesa libraries on Suse?

Debian Installation :: Several Versions Of Linux On One PC

Nov 11, 2014

Is it correct to assume that I can install many versions of Linux on a PC, provided for each Linux I set up a separate ext4 partition, and GRUB will let me select which OS to load? If so then:

1. I do not have to set up a separate SWAP partition for each Linux, do I? Will one SWAP serve all the OS?

2. If I wanted my /home directory to reside on a separate partition so that my data will not be lost if I reinstall Linux, do I have to create a separate /home partition for every Linux? Or they can share one?

Debian :: Backup Linux Installation And Restore On New HDD

Jun 10, 2015

I have Lenovo IdeaPad z510 laptop.My HDD SMART status is currently "failure". As my laptop is under warranty I can return it to lenovo. So I want to backup as much data as possible (everything is readable). I currently have 3 operating systems: linux xubuntu 14.10, debian 8 and windows 8.1 (triple-boot?). I want to back up only my current debian installation. There are 3 partitions for debian: root (about 50GB), home (>200GB) and swap. I know that I can backup the whole partition using:

Code: Select alldd -if=/dev/sdaX -of=/locaton/of/backup -something

And create .tar file with the whole home directory.

how to restore it later. In /etc/fstab there are references to UUIDs, and as I understand, with new HDD these UUIDs would be different. And possibly the whole partition table would be different. And how would I restore GRUB?I can't make full image of my disk simply because I don't have disk to store it on.Is it possible to create backup on my current debian installation without actually making full HDD backup? Would it work if I would install debian on new disk, then from LiveCD overwrite it with my backup and modify /etc/fstab to match new partitions?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: No Proprietary Libs On Installation Disc

Mar 2, 2010

My friend just installed Ubuntu from cd on a computer without Internet connection. She hoped to be able to open some video and music files there, but it turns out there were no proprietary libs in the installer. And since the majority of the files were avi, mp3 and mp4, they couldn't be read.I am an experienced Linux user, but I have mainly dealt with Gentoo, plus I'm used to be able to download and install programs directly through a package manager. However since my friend's computer isn't connected we don't have that possibility.

how can I install proprietary libs (like for the formats mentioned) to this computer? Could they be available from the installation disc, and if so how do I get them? Can I transfer packages with a memory stick? (And is there some easy way to find all dependencies?) Or any other solution?I do have a 3G mobile modem dongle which perhaps we could use. However I have bad impressions of those and Linux. Will it work without a great deal of configuring (or extra software)? Otherwise, this method would mean an extra step.

Debian Installation :: GNU / Linux On A Single Drive (SSD) Desktop Computer

Jan 5, 2015

I'd like to install Debian GNU/Linux on a single drive (SSD) desktop computer.The filesystem of choice is BTRFS and a couple of thing are not really clear to me:

- is a swap partition still necessary and what's the best fs for it?
- what partition scheme would be suggested?

I thought about 2 different btrfs partitions, one for /home and one for / (root) but from what I read if I'm giving the raw drive to BTRFS that would be more beneficial performance-wise, is that correct? (actually I don't even know if 2 btrfs partitions on the same drive is even possible).

If should I got for "donating" the raw/whole drive to btrfs which subvolumes scheme would be suggested for an easy management of the snapshots and backups? should /home be a subvolume or that's not really necessary.

Debian Installation :: Errors While Installing 3.2.66-grsec Linux-image

Feb 22, 2015

Debian Wheezy upgraded to Jessie. I can't install my grsec kernel. I did everything exactly like they say on website: [URL] ....

patching: grsecurity-3.0-3.2.66-201502180830.patch and linux-3.2.66 -o.k
then ''make menuconfig'': Configuration Method - Automatic (for virtualbox hosting) -o.k
compiling the kernel: 'fakeroot make deb-pkg' -o.k
and last step, installing new kernel : ''dpkg -i *.deb'' -not o.k

Below is the output from executing command : dpkg -i *.deb which supposed to install 3.2.66-grsec linux-image:

root@debian:/home/userone/Downloads/ ls

[Code] ....

After restarting, old kernel is booting, however from booting menu under advanced GNU/Linux options i can choice 3.2.66-grsec linux-image to boot, unfortunately it 'panics' (kernel panic - not syncing: grsec: halting the system due to suspicious kernel crash caused by root) and only way to turn off the computer is to hold down power button.

Debian Installation :: Dual Boot Windows And Linux Partitions

Dec 28, 2015

I have Windows 10 and Deb 8 dual boot, and I need to re-install Windows but want to avoid (or at least plan for) losing Grub/Linux boot.

Last time I re-installed Windows after Linux I ended up having to re-install Linux again afterwards as well, because I couldn't recover it (seemingly due to complications from encryption). So this time I'm wanting to plan and avoid that.


Code: Select allsda1  |  550M   |  EFI System
sda2  |  128M   |  Microsoft reserved
sda3  |  175.8G |  Microsoft basic data
sda4  |  286M   |  Linux filesystem (Boot)
sda5  |  28.2G  |  Linux filesystem (Root)
sda6  |  91.3G  |  Linux filesystem (Home)
sda7  |  1.9G   |  Linux swap

[Code] ....

As there is a "Microsoft Reserved" partition and a separate Microsoft directory within the EFI partition, if I just go ahead and reinstall Windows will it install it's boot loader/image to one of it's own partitions? And NOT affect anything else like Grub and other Linux things?

Logic tells me yes, but there seems to be many issues on the internet about installing Windows after Linux.

My primary concern is whatever happens with Windows or anything to do with dual loading etc, is that Linux will still just boot, or I can get it working again without much hassle.

Why is there a reserved Microsoft partition AND a Microsoft directory in the EFI partition? Which one boots Windows?

Why is there a separate Linux Boot partition AND a Linux directory in the EFI partition? Which one boots Linux? Where is Grub invoked from, is one redundant, etc?

How these work. It is possible I've set them up wrong, or with redundant partitions, but both systems have been booting ok for months.

Debian Installation :: Jessie Installer Cannot See Existing Linux Partition

Jan 12, 2016

I have an issue with Gparted v0.19.0 (Jessie) which has replaced v0.12.1 (Wheezy) which works fine. I had hoped to ask this question in Gparted's own forum, but after three weeks and multiple attempts no-one has approved my account there.

Unfortunately, my existing partition structure (on two different laptops) seems to be invisible to the new version of Gparted. Since parted seems to be used by the Debian installer, the Jessie installer cannot install on these machines without repartitioning the entire disk. That means that on such machines, the only option is to wipe everything or install Wheezy, then edit sources.list to upgrade to Jessie.

Both Gparted v0.19.0 and the Jessie installer report the entire hard disk as a single Fat16 partition,The same partitions which are invisible to Gparted appear as normal in the Places sidebar, of either Thunar or the PCManFM file manager. They can be mounted and used, seemingly without issue (I have experienced the same problem under Ubuntu/Lubuntu 15.10). Below, is the shell output of fdisk, which can see the partition structure and parted, which cannot:

Code: Select all$ sudo fdisk -lu

Disk /dev/sda: 74.5 GiB, 80026361856 bytes, 156301488 sectors
Units: sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
