Debian :: Machine Acting Buggy - Fan Kept Running After Update

Feb 3, 2011

Just updated, downloads and install complete. I closed laptop. Fan kept running. I rebooted. Black screen. Rebooted again. Screen resolution messed up (800x600 or whatever). Changed resolution in System/Prefs. Better, but the look is not the same as before update. The Gnome fonts and icons are too small, but the resolution is same as before update! My machine has been acting buggy lately...colored text in IceWeasel browser search field, where normally black. I have Firestarter running. How to tell if machine is hacked? I just logged out/in and all normal now. I still think the machine is acting weird.

Debian Configuration :: Laptop DVD Drive Is Acting Odd (blank) After Update

Aug 20, 2010

After the mass amount of updates that appeared for Debian, my DVD drive seems to detect a burned DVD I have as blank now. And when i put in the disc, there's two copies of the DVD drive on Computer, both of which are labeled CD/DVD Drive: Blank DVD-ROM Disc. I have gone in to disc manager and found that it is possible to mount the volume on the disc, and on the second icon it will appear and work. However, this is annoying having two icons.

Now, when I don't have a disc in there, it only shows one drive. My PC may have messed up during the updates, because I just let it update in the background while my sister was using it to show my mom's friends pictures and she randomly closed out of one of the windows without asking me anything (ffff), so that may have messed something up. Does anyone know how I would go about fixing this?

General :: Setup A Machine Running Drupal CMS On A Debian Machine?

Aug 13, 2010

I'm know very little about Linux but decided to set up a machine running Drupal CMS on a Debian machine and it won't go. The folks at Drupal have tried to help but it seems the Debian OS won't do it's PHP thing for Drupal.

That means i'll have to start at the START I guess.

how to become a master of Linux if one is starting from ABC (I can add and subtract, that's what it feels like)

OpenSUSE :: Suse 11.4: Scribus 1.4.0 RC1 Buggy -> Update?

Apr 9, 2011

someone decided for whatever reason to ship Suse 11.4 with a broken version of Scribus. Not only is the application missing in the KDE-Menu after installation (had to add it manually) but it is crashing frequently. Whenever one adds new text in a Textbox (which will NOT be formated with the specified default font but the first in the list) and then immediately changes the font without first leaving the input-focus of that box: Segfault / signal 11. I understand that there is a RC2 out by now and the specific error seems to be fixed by that.

Now my question is: After having decided to ship sUSE 11.4 with a RC: Will further RCs and maybe the final release of scribus be shipped by the OpenSuse Update? Or does the user have to manually install a working version of that software?

OpenSUSE :: Update The Buggy Version Of Texinfo?

Aug 22, 2011

in 11.4 the texi2dvi version is 1.135, based on texinfo version 4.13. Now these are old buggy versions (see e.g. texi2dvi: locale-dependent error in egrep [A-z] ), causing that documentation can not be built, for example when building gcc. Now one would hope that Suse provides updates (the latest version of texinfo is 4.9), but I can't find them?

It seems to me that the installation of texinfo is a bit more complicated, because of the integration with your system, so I hesitate to install texinfo myself. Yast should have a bug-reporting facility, where one could easily report such issues. Hope somebody can help (we have to install various pieces of software, which call texi2dvi, which then breaks, making the whole build breaks, and it would be not easy to change the build of these

Debian :: Is Stable Supposed To Be Buggy?

Aug 8, 2010

I don't mean this to be in any way a critical post but I've recently switched to Debian from numerious other distros because of it elidged stability and speed. However I'm using the stable version and frequently have to reboot for certain things to work and frequently multimedia based programs crash on me. I've installed the repo from so I don't know if that's causeing any problems. It crashes on me multiple times a day. Now it's not the OS itself which is the problem I'm sure but more the software in the repos. However it was my udnerstanding that this software was pretty darn well tested.

Debian :: Unmounting A USBstick Acting As A Modem?

Apr 13, 2011

after some hard times, I finally managed to have my Orange Huawei E1752 HSPA modem running (a USB modem enabling you to surf the net) the only thing is that I have 2 "problems" with this: I cannot find a clean way to eject the stick when I am done using it. when I want to run it, I plug it, it asks me for the PIN code, which I give, then I do the following manipulations: I first run:

it "creates" 2 files /dev/ttyUSB0 and /dev/ttyUSB1, what I check with:
ls -l /dev/ttyUSB*

then I use the usbserial module to handle the stick: modprobe usbserial vendor=0x12d1 product=0x141b then I check that the stick is working with: dmesg|grep GSM that outputs something like: USB Serial support registered for GSM modem (1-port) option 1-5:1.0: GSM modem (1-port) converter detected usb 1-5: GSM modem (1-port) converter now attached to ttyUSB0 option 1-5:1.1: GSM modem (1-port) converter detected
usb 1-5: GSM modem (1-port) converter now attached to ttyUSB1 option: v0.7.2:USB Driver for GSM modems
finally I choose the "Orange Default" in the list of available connections in the network manager icon on the panel and I am finally connected The thing is, that when I am done, I just go to the same list and then click "disconnect" I go on "Computer" and left click on the SD 4Gb storage (the SD card also in the stick) safely remote drive or something like this. Then I thought that unmounting the device would work,


As a newbie (and especially regarding the use of those modems) I am running out of ideas to "eject" it cleanly, I also checked in the /dev/ file to see that the ttyUSB0 and ttyUSB1 files are present

Networking :: Debian 5 Box With Two Nics Acting As Router?

Jul 29, 2011

I have a Debian 5 system with two nics. eth0 is set up with dhcp-client which will receive a public ip address from my isp. The eth1 will be for my local network and I want to use dhcp-server daemon to serve addresses to my internal network. The area I am confused about is how transmissions are getting sent between nics. I've been told to enable tcp forwarding but I don't understand how that would work since the nics have different network addresses... unless tcp forwarding is basically nat or something..

Debian Configuration :: New Warning After Kernel Update - Machine Failed To Get I915 Symbols

Jun 22, 2011

I do not know if this is really something I should worry about. I am running Debian testing on my laptop (HP Pavillon dv6). Today, the aptitude update---aptitude upgrade gave me a new kernel (2.6.39). However, if I boot with that kernel, I get a warning (do not know if that is the way I should call this) telling me that the machine failed to get the i915 symbols so turbo graphics will be disabled.I have not done any serious test, but at first sight I do not notice any difference performance-wise with respect to the previous kernel. what am I supposed to do to fix this?

Fedora Networking :: Getting A Machine To Update Its Machine Name In The DNS ServerSounds Doesn't?

Feb 20, 2011

I have an issue with the manner in which Network Manager is configuring the network and short of ditching Network Manager I can see no solution.The issue : Getting a machine to update its machine name in the DNS serverSounds simple doesn't it I operate a FreeBSD based firewall / DHCP / DNS server, using a default Network Manager DHCP configuration the Fedora clients do not register their names with the DNS server when they obtain an address.

I have traced the communications with Wireshark and the Fedora clients are NOT supplying the PC's hostname as part of the exchange so this is NOT a DNS server configuration issue. If I uncheck the option 'Automatically obtain DNS information from provider' under the DHCP settings the Fedora clients DO register the hostname that is put into the Hostname (optional) databox. They do NOT however store the DNS server IP address or any other records defined by the DNS server.

Is there some hidden settings or is this a bug because it isn't acceptable 'DHCP' behaviour if it isn't possible to automatically set DNS server IP addresses and at the same time register the hostname during the DHCP negotiation. Before it is said I know I can use a fixed DNS IP address but am not prepared to long term, I am also not prepared to define the Fedora clients with a 'static' IP. I am similarly not interested in playing around with scripts or any other such 'frigs' to achieve what should be a standard activity - registering a host with DNS during the DHCP negotiation.

The error is the same for the other computer except while attempting to update the rpmforge repository. Nothing has really changed on the servers in some time and 'yum update' worked fine on each yesterday and I have no idea why they would both suddenly fail!

OpenSUSE :: 11.4 Freezes When Running KVM Virtual Machine

Apr 8, 2011

I have 3 boxes running opensuse-11.4 64 bit - Phenom-I 2.6 GHz, Intel Q9400 quad core 2.66 GHz and Intel SU7300 dual core 1.3 GHz (the last one is a laptop). When I run a KVM virtual machine and load it quite a lot all host OS freeze. Interestingly, the laptop works the longest (hours), while the fastest system with Q9400 freezes in max. 10 minutes. After a hard reboot there is nothing in /var/log/messages This bug is 100% reproducible. The guest OS is either RHEL or openSUSE. Is it a 11.4 bug or I am missing something? Have not tried the same hardware with RHEL-6.

General :: Laptop - Running Skype On A 400 Mhz Machine?

Oct 25, 2010

I have an offer for a free outdated laptop, and wondering if it's possible to run skype on this. It will be running with a very stripped-down Ubuntu Linux operating system, and no other graphical goodies hogging up the processing power.

The specs will be:

400 Mhz Celeron processor

Approx 300 MB RAM

Rest is unknown.

Think this is capable of running skype with video?

Ubuntu :: Running MS Office In A Virtual Machine?

Jan 21, 2011

I am getting seriously tired of running MS Office in a virtual machine. It's been about 18 months since I tried running in on Wine, so I just checked out WineHQ and CodeWeavers and apparently usability hasn't improved at all.

I keep trying to use OpenOffice but whenever I open PowerPoint presentations they are always kind of messed up. This week, somebody sent me an MS Word file for printing labels for a mail merge and the label template file opened up blank. Anybody else have any brilliant work arounds or am I still stuck with my MS Office VirtualBox!! It's really hard to believe that its 2011 and Linux is still missing a world-class Office Suite...

Programming :: Running Iperf On Machine From Web Interface

May 22, 2011

I'm not sure if I'm posting in the correct section, so please move it if it isn't.I currently have a bunch of laptops for testing a distributed network - throughput etc., using a bunch of bash scripts that send or listen to multiple addresses and ports, which run iperf. But at the moment I have to run it from each machine, or log in through ssh.To make this easier, I'd like to be able to present a bunch of buttons and selections from a web interface, so I can just put in the hostname of each laptop, and then click on a presented 'send' or 'listen' button to then execute iperf, and be able to kill it early if need by, say, by a 'stop' button.

What is the best way to go about this? Python, JavaScript, Java Servlet?And how would I do it? Just one of the above on Apache or something on each laptop?I just don't which direction to start heading in. Any help would be greatly appreciated.BTW. The network is considered to be not connected to the Internet, so I'm not too concerned about security, but if you've got any suggestion of how to start and stop iperf securely from a web interface on a machine, I'm interested.
