Debian Multimedia :: Segmenation Fault On Skype 2.1. On Squeeze?

Mar 7, 2011

Skype was running okey when I was using it on Lenny and was still running okey on squeeze (when I upgraded) until yesterday when it won't start anymore after login. It simply crashes. I run it on terminal to capture the error and the result is:

skype: pcm_null.c:130: snd_pcm_null_start: Assertion `null->state == SND_PCM_STATE_PREPARED' failed.
Segmentation fault

Debian Multimedia :: Error Installing Skype 2.2 On Squeeze

Apr 26, 2011

I downloaded skype 2.2 .deb package on the skype website and tried to install it via sudo dpkg -i skype-debian_2.2.0.25-1_i386.deb and got the following errors:


What does the error mean? I am guessing I have a faulty package. old skype can't be used due to segmentation fault error, so I am really hoping for the new upgrade to solve my skype problem.

Debian Multimedia :: Just Installed Squeeze / Running Back To Lenny

Feb 6, 2011

I could not get the hardware to work with Lenny's ancient drivers, so I gave up and decided to upgrade to Squeeze.Well, the hardware works (except sound), but KDE4 is a such a disaster that I want to run not walk! all the way back to Lenny. I'm stunned that after four years of active development, this desktop still doesn't have something as basic as keyboard shortcuts or the ability to place icons where YOU want them.

The widgets frustrate me to no end. The new K menu is impossible to navigate. I'd rather hang myself than use Dolphin as a file manager. KDE4 gives me more notifications than MS Windows' crapware. And it's UGLY !!! The "Oxygen" theme makes me want to tear my eyeballs out.

Debian Installation :: Successfully Installed But No Grub Entry Added

Apr 12, 2011

I have just installed Debian and the installation went smooth (net installation). The last prompt was to specify if you want to be able to boot 3 different OS's using grub. I answered yes (I have Win7, Ubuntu and now wanted to install Debian for testing purposes). Is there any way I could manually add entry to grub for booting Debian, for instance from Ubuntu adding to menu.lst?

Debian Installation :: Default Audio System For Squeeze And Skype

May 2, 2010

I would like to know which is the default audio system for Squeeze. I'll explain the reason for this question: I had a lenny desktop working like a charm until the hard disk damaged completely. After buying a new desktop computer, I installed Ubuntu 9.10 and I didn't know that the default audio system for Ubuntu was pulseaudio; so I always had problems with skype and my microphone. I remember that with my lenny desktop I never ever had any problem with my sound system and skype.

I've googled for months without finding a consistent fix for this problem in Ubuntu, I've also heard lots and lots of people with the same problem as mine and never solved it; so I decided to get rid of it and install debian Squeeze in my box, but I would like to be sure which is the default audio system for Squeeze, or at least know if anyone have had problems with skype and Squeeze.

Software :: Skype Crashes On Debian / Squeeze AMD64 System - Fix It?

May 18, 2010

Using the howto at I installed Skype 2.1 beta 2. It launches OK using either skype or linux32 skype and brings up the login screen. It already has my username but when I enter my password skype crashes before logging me in. I get the error:

Inconsistency detected by dl-open.c: 643: _dl_open: Assertion `_dl_debug_initialize (0, args.nsid)->r_state == RT_CONSISTENT' failed!

I know this is a long shot since skype isn't open source, but does anyone have a workaround?

Debian Installation :: Installed Squeeze But Just Getting Blank Screen?

Jun 2, 2011

I installed Debian squeeze on my old Dell Latitude C600 laptop. I Installed it from a cd that worked to a friend of mine. I finished the installation successfully. After booting the computer I can get to the grub screen and after choosing the OS (Debian GNU/LINUX, with linx 2.6.32-5-686) I see the computer loading and running command lines, but after few lines, I get black screen and I hear the computer "working" but can't see anything and it doesn't react to anything that I do.

OpenSUSE :: Has Anyone Successfully Installed DockBarX?

Sep 10, 2010

I tried out DockBarx on my previous Ubuntu computer and really liked it. I installed openSUSE not too long ago and I just decided it's about time to get it back! However, I'm having some trouble installing it. My initial attempt was to simply download the tarball of dockbarx from GNOME-Look, untar it and run Unfortunately, it will not run for me..not as root, standard user, anything. I do have Python-Base installed, and my "cnf python" does return a successful response. My PATH has /python's location in it and everything.I then tried the .rpm but I need to install python-keybinder, pyxdg and dbus, but I cannot find any downloads or repo's with it. I could simply be missing it though. So, basically, I'm asking all of you who have successfully installed it on your openSUSE system to inform me on how you did it.

I am running Debian Squeeze 32bit with gnome-core installed. When I alter the acceleration or sensitivity within the pointer speed section of gnome-mouse-properties, my mouse does not act differently. Has anyone else encountered this problem? How can I change my mouse sensitivity? I have installed Debian Lenny previously and I recall that I was capable of changing the sensitivity.

Debian Configuration :: Squeeze Installed - Slow Responses To Ping

Feb 15, 2011

Just installed squeeze and noticing slow responses to ping. Ping with -n is fine, and as expected. Ping without -n is very slow to appear on the screen.

I've tried disabling ip6, disabling avahi and adding options single-request to my /etc/resolv.conf - problem remains. If it helps when installing Squeeze was prompted to install firmware-realtek, which I didn't have. So downloaded onto usb from another machine installed once setup was complete.

Fedora :: ATI Drivers Installed Successfully But KDE Won't Run Desktop Effects / Solve It?

Dec 8, 2010

I didn't post this thread in the hardware section because I got my ATI propitiatory drivers installed successfully and my problem seems to be with KDE. I'm trying to enable Desktop Effects for KDE.

The story is that ATI drivers installed correctly but when I go to "Application Launcher" => "System Settings" => "Desktop Effects" I can't enable Desktop effects and it has the following message:

"Desktop effects are not available on this system due to the following technical issues:
Required X extensions (XComposite and XDamage) are not available."

First of all I don't really know what this means. I have done some Googling around and have found a few places suggesting that I should enable the "Damage" and "Composite" extensions in my xorg.conf. I have done that, as you can see in the attached Xorg.conf file. It still doesn't work.

OpenSUSE Install :: Successfully Installed 11.2 On Dell PowerEdge 1850 System?

Apr 19, 2010

Has anyone successfully installed openSUSE 11.2 on a Dell PowerEdge 1850 system?Undoubtedly, it wasn't wise to attempt to upgrade from 10.2 to 11.2 but I was forced into it by a security audit of DMZ systems.It didn't go as smoothly as the jump from 9.3 to 10.2.I've spent the better part of a week getting an openSUSE 11.2 system installed.I went back to reiserfs and managed to get through and apply all the updates to openSUSE 11.2 today.When I got to the final reboot, it failed when I attempted to log into the system.Basically, the keyboard and mouse became inoperable.The only way out of this situation is to mash the reset button.

Rebooting into safe-mode and adding level 3 to the safe mode boot options, I get to the point of starting sshd when the lock-up occurs.It looks like X11 is the culprit.Booting a forensics DVD, I find that there is an xorg.conf.installation but no xorg.conf file.The ATI Radeon VE chip set is used on the PowerEdge.From another openSUSE system that I haven't upgraded, I see that X11 was configured for VESA mode. This is, probably, the mode that is needed as console access is, normally, through a KVM.Can anyone provide a way to get past this problem with a workable keyboard and mouse?

Debian Multimedia :: XF86Audio Multimedia Keys Not Working In Squeeze

Jun 23, 2011

I finally installed Squeeze on my laptop and found out that the XF86Audio multimedia keys do not work.

When I press them, they're correctly identified by xev but they do not produce the desired effect (raise/lower/mute volume, play/pause/stop/prev/next song in media players like Sonata).

Funnily enough though, they do work in Audacious, which has its own plugin to manage XF86Audio media keys.

So it's like the action of pressing these keys is not intercepted by the system and no event is triggered.

I think this might be due to a missing package or configuration but I have no idea where to look...
