Debian Installation :: Ca-certificates Fails During OS Install

Mar 1, 2016

I'm trying to install Debian Jessie, but the installation keeps failing when installing the ca-certificates package and then asks for a media change to the disk that is already in the drive, and keeps asking even though it's already in the drive.

Server :: Alternative To SSL Certificates / Make Self-signed Certificates Work On Most Popular Browsers Without Being Flagged?

Aug 24, 2010

I run a web server on Fedora 12, principally using Apache, MySQL, and PHP. I host a variety of sites, one of which is a family website that contains semi-sensitive personal data for several hundred extended family members, who all have access to the database-driven site.

Until now, I have been using a self-signed SSL certificate to encrypt the data as it is read and written back and forth from my database. Family members have simply had to put up with clicking past certificate warnings as they enter the site, as most browsers flag self-signed certificates as bad. It hasn't really been that much of a bother, but I'd love to do it more professionally. I have looked into buying SSL certificates, but it's a site I host for free and would rather find a cheap or free alternative if possible.

So I'm just fishing for ideas to work with. What are some alternatives to using SSL certificates for moderately strong website encryption? So far, I run only one host on the domain, but may eventually need encryption that would support multiple hosts. Or does anybody know a way to make self-signed certificates work on most popular browsers without being flagged as suspicious?

Debian Installation :: Partitioning Fails During Install?

Feb 11, 2011

So I am helping a friend (computer n00b) to install Debian Squeeze over the telephone, since his Vista had crashed, and after we set up the partitions like so:9 GB /1GB swap 150 GB /homeIt "hangs" for a while, i.e. nothing happens, and then it says that it "failed to partition disks". It did not give any error codes, and I did not see the message first hand, since I was doing it over the phone, but I was thinking that there is something wrong with the hard drive (causing Vista to crash perhaps?) so could this be circumvented by just using the first (or last) 10-15 GB of the disk?

Debian Installation :: System Going Down - Install Fails Every Time

Apr 27, 2015

When I try to install Debian 8 on my laptop I get this rather odd error. The install fails every time. I've managed to get as far as choosing which Desktop Environment I want and the shortly after it shuts off. It shows 4 messages

Code: Select allSystem is going down!
Sending Termsignal
Sending Killsignal
Requesting Machine Poweroff

The machine I'm trying to install on is a Gateway NV53, 4gb of RAM, AMD Athlon II x64.

At first I thought it might be my disc so I burnt another DVD using the 4.3GB DVD image I had downloaded. I checked the disc and it verified with the image and so I tried again with the same results as above. Any clue what might be causing this? I'm sure it isn't my hardware, Arch has been running fine for almost 6 months and never seemed to care.

Debian Installation :: Preseed Install Of 8.2 Amd 64 Fails To Wait For DHCP

Oct 9, 2015

I've run into a situation where when performing a pxe/preseed install the system boots up into the install without issue, getting a dhcp address, then the installer begins to configure the network and it gets to where it request a dhcp address and it instantly fails the install stating that we are either not using dhcp or it's slow.

I've added d-i netcfg/dhcp_timeout string 600 to the preseed file but it doesn't seem to be honoured here since it doesn't wait 600 seconds before failing. I have 2 other identical systems that install using the same preseed file but the installer completes as expected. This system has no issues installing centos just debian fails. I did try, once the install failed, to switch to the console and run udhcpc and the server received the address reserved for it.

Is there a method to force debian installer to wait a bit longer for the dhcp server besides what I've already done?

Debian Installation :: Attempt To Install From USB Fails To Detect Cdrom

Jan 31, 2016

I am attempting to install debian for the first time on my pc that has no cdrom drive. I downloaded the Jessie CD image and wrote it to a 4GB stick, it didnt work. Then tried the netinstall image but face the same issue.

To write the usb stick I used unetbooting first, then tried win32diskimager and finally tried DD while stick was not mounted

Code: Select alldd if=debian.iso of=/dev/sdb BS=4MB; sync

Issue is still the same: I boot from the usb and after selecting language and keyboard it fails to detect cdrom drive (no drive at all in my pc). Same behavior using normal or expert mode.

Im also unable to manually specify the drive (it looks at /cdrom and I wanted to change it to the usb stick itself or mount usb to /cdrom but I cant find my stick in /dev)

Debian Installation :: USB Stick Install Fails - Missing Operating System

Nov 18, 2014

I want to try Debian on my Asus Eee netbook and I'm trying to follow the instructions in URL... But just copying the ISO file to the USB drive then trying to boot from it doesn't seem to work. I just get "Missing operating system".

The Eee can use an external optical drive as well but that failed also. I'm sure I need to do more to prepare the USB drive or CD? Can I prepare the USB Drive or CD on my Windows system, and make it boot on the netbook (which has another Linux distro on it now)?

Debian :: Import Certificates To Whole System

Dec 18, 2010

I have enrolled some certificates from my own ca, to use to a couple of different services, like FTP, WEB, Mail etc. All these certificates comes from the same CA (my own), and I have created a root CA. But is it possible to import this root CA to the whole system, so I do not have to import the certificate or root CA to the different applications like iceweasel/firefox, chrome, icedove, filezilla etc.

Debian :: Router Configuration And Certificates Warnings?

Apr 19, 2011

I've just bought a Linksys WRT610N router and I ran through various problems during the configuration, that brought some questions.Here is what I did to configure it (following the short manual that I got with the router)1. plugged the router in my modem and in my computer via ethernet cables2. entered its IP address (given on the manual) on my browser and logged in with the factory login3. changed the login passwordAfter this the problems that I have encountered are that:I set up the administration of the router to be disabled via wireless and enabled locally via https, but when saving those settings I either lost the connection (the browser telling me the server was not accessible) or asked confirm a security certificate after being (logically) redirected to the https version of the administration pageafter trying to loggin again, I wasn't able to login via https but only via http even if after logging those parameters were still as I set them (wireless administrative login disabled and local administrative login enabled only via https)

via https when getting something else than "the server is not responding or could be too busy", I was prompted the untrusted connection site, saying that"192.168.1.1 uses an invalid security certificate.The certificate is not trusted because it is self-signed.The certificate is only valid for Linksys.The certificate expired on 01/01/71 01:21. The current time is 19/04/11 22:56.(Error code:sec_error_expired_issuer_certificate)"I noticed that after loosing the connection and not being able to reach the router either with http or https, the only way I was then able to reconnect to it was to go into (I am using firefox 4 on squeeze) edit > preferences > advanced > encryption > view certificates > servers and delete the linksys certificate

Debian Configuration :: Replace Snakeoil SSL Certificates?

Mar 2, 2010

It appears that on Debian (Squeeze) that when I install Postfix MTA, it looks like it uses a default Debian SSL certificate:

root@mail:~# postconf -n | grep -i snakeoil
smtpd_tls_cert_file = /etc/ssl/certs/ssl-cert-snakeoil.pem
smtpd_tls_key_file = /etc/ssl/private/ssl-cert-snakeoil.key

My question is it safe to remove these and re-create my own with openssl?

cd /etc/ssl/certs
openssl req -new -x509 -newkey rsa:2048 -days 3650 -keyout mail.key -out mail.crt
openssl rsa -in mail.key -out mail.key
mv mail.key /etc/ssl/private

Will this impact my Debian system any or will it work fine? Do you guys have any experience with this? I would rather try generating them myself and change it from 1024 to 2048.

Fedora Installation :: Upgrade RH9 To F10 - Install Fails - Installer Fails Media Check Due To "errors"

Jan 23, 2009

I am trying to upgrade RH9 to F10. I have downloaded dvd iso image i386. The SHA1 integrity check passes. The installer fails media check due to "errors". I did an independent verification of the DVD and zero errors found. Download was from Fedora's own torrent, so files should be verified anyway. If I bypass the media check I get the message : Running anaconda 11.4.1.62 the Fedora system installer - please wait.....

Fedora Installation :: F11 - Graphical Install Fails - Text Install Has No Fdisk

Jun 28, 2009

I have been using Redhat/Fedora for 11 years. I don't understand why Fedora 11, can't even do a vga graphical install, when Windows can.

I tried many parameters, including xdriver=vesa, and it cannot used graphical install.

So, I tried text install, which I have done many times in the past.

However, F11 seems crippled, in that it will NOT do the same install achievable from a graphical install.

It will NOT allow the use of fdisk, and it will NOT allow any selection of any packages.

What is the point of this option?

Even after trying all of this, for a dual boot install, and F11 claims to have installed, there is no grub or equivalent, and the computer just boots windows, just like Fedora 11 did absolutely nothing.

What are the options now? Why is text install so crippled and incomplete? Why is standard VGA mode so hard?

I'm an OpenSuse user wanting to try something different.Ubuntu Studios caught my attention. I had a brief play with an older version a while ago and liked whatI saw.Im having problems installing though.I've downloaded the 32bit version from the studio website link, and burnt the DVD.However the install always fails at the same stage: Select and install software.The error message is not specific, and no more information is given other than the step has failed.Any ideas what could be causing this? Ive tried to burn the DVD several times, on 2 different machines, but no luck so far.

Debian Installation :: USB Installation Fails To Find An Installation Iso Image

Aug 15, 2010

I have installed Debian maybe 30 times over the years since about 2003, stable, testing and Sid on two different desktops and two different laptops. The only problem I have ever had is sometimes with a flaky daily build. It is one of my favorite distros.

BUT, I am totally frustrated is trying to install to a USB. I have followed the manual step by step about 6 times in the past two weeks. The result is always the same. The installation fails to find an installation iso image. Yes, I know the iso image and the hd-media vmlinuz and initrd.gz files are supposed to be the same version.

File: debian-testing-i386-netinst.iso from: [url]

Files: vmlinuz and initrd.gz from: [url]

The USB boots to a Language selection screen and proceeds through the Keyboard selection screen with no problems.

The next step which searches for an installation iso image fails.

Skipping that step and trying to load installer components from iso image also fails.

Searching the entire PC for an installation iso image also fails. (I even copied the netinst iso image to the HD root directory.)

Debian :: Shutdown Fails On Clean Install

Nov 20, 2010

Did a clean minimal install of Testing in a Virtual Machine (VirtualBox).Login as root.Type "shutdown now".It starts shutting down, then says INIT: Sending processes the TERM signal Give root password for maintenance (or type Control-D to continue):If i press Control-D it goes back to a login prompt.Okay, i maybe missing a point since "shutdown -h now" gives the expected behaviour.Call me old fashioned but I think that a "shutdown now" should shutdown a system, and not effectively reboot the system. There is a reboot command for that.

Debian Installation :: GRUB Installation On MBR Fails To Complete

May 10, 2013

I have downloaded the Wheezy DVD 1 and started the istallation process. The installation time is strangely very short in respect to the Squeeze release, anyway

The GRUB installation step fails. I terminated the installation without a bootloader and rebooted from DVD with the rescue boot option.

Now I asked for a console to try to manually install the bootloader but the following command:

# grub-install /dev/sda1
[where sda1 is my root partition]

gets the following message:

/bin/sh: grub-install: not found

What can I do?

Debian Hardware :: Testing Fails To Boot After Install On Ppc

Nov 14, 2015

I was planning on installing Stretch on my iBook G4. So I got my netinst cd and went through the install process. Everything was fine till I got to the section where I selected my mirrors. I chose the US/ftp.debian.org mirror and it failed so I tried the ftp.kernel.org and that failed as well. Then I tried the third on the list and I was able to connect and get my packages. The install completed, however when I rebooted the bootup froze. So I thought that it could my cd so I went and grabbed the latest stretch iso from the site.

Yet again I ran into issues. The biggest was that I kept getting sent back to install menu to manually select what steps I wanted to do. I found this odd since normally the install will just walk you through. Then I ran into the same issues with mirrors. finally the install completed and I was rebooted. However the boot failed again, but this I got dropped into the initramfs shell. Should I file this as bug with the debain-installer package?

Hardware :: Debian USB Install Fails To Boot After Adding HD

Mar 10, 2010

I've just installed debian to a thumb drive on a system with no hard drives. I did not install any hard drive to avoid confusion. The installation went well, I rebooted the system several times with no issues until I decided to install the hard drive (SATA drive). After I installed the hard drive the system failed to boot showing something like:

Code:
Decompressing Linux... Parsing ELF... done.
Booting the kernel.
Loading, please wait...
mount: mounting /dev/sda1 on /root failed: No such device
(continues for other partitions and mount points)
Target filesystem doesn't have /sbin/init
No init found. Try passing init=bootarg

BusyBox v1.10.2 (Debian 1:1.10.2-2) built-in shell (ash)
/bin/sh: can't access tty; job control turned off
(initramfs) [9.670347] sd 0:0:0:0: [sdb] Assuming drive cache: write through [9.673805] sd 0:0:0:0: [sdb] Assuming drive cache: write through
(some insignificant text was not copied :P)

I am guessing that the new disk is somehow confusing debian regarding where to look for system files or the address where the devices are located because if I remove the data cable from the hard drive the system reboots correctly (no hard drive though). Hotpluging the drive works but once I reboot it happens again.

Debian :: New Squeeze Install Fails To Boot (not Even To Grub) / Troubleshoot This?

Jun 4, 2011

I recently purchased a new Lenovo Thinkpad T420i and am having problems installing the latest version of Squeeze from CD. After receiving the laptop, I started it up, configured Windows 7, and confirmed everything is working correctly. Next I went through the Debian installer, which completed successfully. I'll be dual-booting Windows 7 and Debian, so at the partitioning stage I resized my NTFS partition, added a shared VFAT partition, then used the "Guided" install to create my root and swap partitions. My partition layout is code...

I assumed something was wrong with grub, so I booted the CD into rescue mode and chose to reinstall grub onto the Master Boot Record. But nothing changed. Just to experiment, I went into fdisk, deleted all my new partitions (leaving just the Windows ones), and tried rebooting, but the same error happened. I then went through the Debian installer again, being careful to set everything up correctly, but still, the device won't boot.

I'm not even getting to the grub boot screen, so something is wrong even before the point. Reinstalling grub to the Master Boot Record (grub-install /dev/sda) isn't changing anything. How can I troubleshoot this?

Debian Installation :: 7.4 - WiFi Configuration Fails

Apr 8, 2014

I've been installing multiple versions of ubunutu over years and now I better understand why I faced always problems with wifi configuration on these different baselines : Debian root of course.

Now on Debian 7.4 :
The Broadcom BCM4313 driver is not loaded by default (not free product) for my wifi card. This is stated thru the UNCLAIMED declaration

Code: Select all 
sudo lshw -c network
 *-network UNCLAIMED
       description: Network controller
       product: BCM4313 802.11b/g/n Wireless LAN Controller
       vendor: Broadcom Corporation
       physical id: 0

[Code] ...

Unclaimed means : no driver found (no kernel association)

So I installed the driver located in the non-free backports by adding this target into the repository

Code: Select alldeb http://http.debian.net/debian/ wheezy main contrib non-free

and install :

Code: Select allsudo apt-get update && apt-get install firmware-brcm80211
sudo modprobe brcm80211

Check seems OK :

Code: Select allsudo lshw -c network

  *-network
       description: Wireless interface
       product: BCM4313 802.11b/g/n Wireless LAN Controller
       vendor: Broadcom Corporation
       physical id: 0

[Code] ....

I can't connect with wlan0, it doesn't work. I found information here regarding WPA2/PSK wifi configuration on debian : [URL] ....

so I added this setup to my interfaces file an got :

Code: Select allauto lo
iface lo inet loopback

allow-hotplug wlan0
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
 wpa-ssid Hznteam-Datacenter
 # hexadecimal psk is encoded from a plaintext passphrase
 wpa-psk 12345678901234567890123456

It's worth ! no more wifi network are detected and ifconfig gives no ip address allocated :

Code: Select allwlan0     Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 78:e4:00:4e:49:a3 
          UP BROADCAST MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1

Debian Installation :: Partitioning Fails On Sun Ultra 450?

Apr 3, 2011

So, I've got as far as partitioning the hard disks on my Sun Ultra 450 Enterprise system, but it always fails with:

SILO (Sparc Linux Loader) can only boot the kernel off of a disk with the "sun" partition table. In the current partitioning scheme the kernel is going to be installed on the /boot partition located on a disk with the partition table of type "msdos".

What is this error message trying to say in its ambiguous way?

I selected automatic partitioning, but it got me to the same place as manual partitioning before it failed in the same way.

I installed four used hard drives in this system - they may have come from PCs for all I know. However, they are SCSI SCA drives, which makes it hard for me to believe they came from a PC environment.

If they did, do I need to to a low-level (or high-level) format of these drives to wipe out the "msdos"ness of them? If so, how do I do that in the SILO installer?

Debian Installation :: User Login Fails / Root Ok

May 26, 2015

Debian 8/Cinnamon fresh install. /home is being shared with two other OS's, Mint and openSUSE. At the login screen I enter my user name and password and the screen blacks for 1-2 seconds and comes back asking for user name and password. I can login as root. As root I can launch the Group & Users GUI and attempt to set the user's password, and pressing the 'change' button does nothing obvious.

I can set the user's password in a terminal, which reports success. I tried to switch users and login with the changed password and I get the same failure. If I try to login with the original password I get an incorrect password error, suggesting that the password is being processed properly and the problem is elsewhere.

On previous installs with Mate and the default desktop (Gnome) I didn't have this problem. So, the questions are: Is it Cinnamon? Is it an unlucky chance bad install? Config files are typically in /home, which is being shared with Mate and KDE, is this the problem?
