Debian :: Number Of Repos That Are Checked Has Dropped?

May 18, 2010

I'm new to Debian and I have just installed it on three machines. To begin with they checked about 60 or so repos when doing an update. Then quite quickly this dropped to 48. I have removed the DVD media from the sources list after installation but that was before I saw this drop. It happened after an update as far as I can tell. I didn't think anything of it at the time. By the time all three were set up they were all only checking 48 repos. However I also have a VM, for trying out new stuff, and whilst that has been updated it still remains at about 60 (currently 59).

Ubuntu Installation :: Checked The Version Number Read 11.04, But No Changes?

Jun 16, 2011

I booted up my Ubuntu VM today expecting to upgrade to 11.04 and play with the new desktop, but to my surprise when I checked the version number read 11.04. It's definitely the old interface though.

Networking :: See The Number Of Packets Dropped By Kernel Due To Insufficient Queue Size?

Sep 15, 2010

As is known, there is a queue lies between the kernel subsystem and the network driver for incoming data. And if data come when this queue has no space for it, the data got dropped by kernel. Is there some way to see how many packets are dropped due to this buff penury? I tried netstat -s but could not find something useful. On the other hand, I found this 12176 packets collapsed in receive queue due to low socket buffer from netstat -s. I think this is something related to the per-socket buffer, but not the incoming queue between the network driver and kernel. Is this right?

Debian Multimedia :: Checked Auto Login After Installation And Now Can't Get Rid Of It?

Jun 18, 2011

I have recently installed Debian Lenny with KDE3. I foolishly checked Auto Login after installation and now I can't get rid of it. The KDE Login Manager window seems to offer the option of turning off auto login, but it does not work. I have tried useradd and userdel but this only makes things worse.

Networking :: TCP Packets Seem To Be Dropped On Debian Squeeze W/NAT?

Apr 4, 2011

I'm running a Debian Squeeze 6.0.1a box that's connected to my ISP via an L2TP connection that's managed by OpenL2TPD. The box is configured to perform NAT from local clients (on eth0) to the internet (on ppp0).

However, I'm having an issue with TCP packets that are sent from the box itself to the internet (packets originally coming from the local clients get sent and received over the internet just fine)

I'm using this Python app to test this:

#!/usr/bin/env python
import socket, time
s = socket.socket(socket.AF_INET, socket.SOCK_STREAM)
s.bind(('', 5003))
while 1:
conn, addr = s.accept()

Debian :: Iceweasel Add - Ons In The Repos?

Aug 29, 2011

A few days ago, I noticed that flash wasn't working. I don't use flash often and have Flashblock guarding the gates so not quite sure when that happened. In the process of getting it running again I noticed a lot of Iceweasel add-ons are available in the Debian repos. In fact, deleting Flashblock from Firefox and switching to the one from the repos may be what fixed the problem (or it could have been the latest Iceweasel update which I reinstalled).

Anyway, my question is . . . just how do add-ons available via Synaptic and those from Firefox differ? And is it preferable and advisable to use the ones in Synaptic? Since I imported my old profile from Firefox to Iceweasel, I have a lot of standard add-ons rather than the Debian version.

Debian :: Search For Rare Software In A Giant List Of Repos

A search engine for software only would be nice. Member Craigevil maintains a huge list of repos here:


Might it be possible to search them all at once? Perhaps by adding them all, OR MOST of them, to /etc/apt/sources.list?

Debian Configuration :: Apt Update Errors On Locally Mounted Repos

Nov 27, 2015

My primary repos are DVD .isos on my hard drive loop-mounted in /etc/fstab. Although I can install packages just fine and there are no issues with running installed applications, I must have screwed up the configuration of /etc/apt/sources.list because I get this output when I do apt-get update:

Code: Select allIgn file: jessie InRelease
Ign file: jessie InRelease
Ign file: jessie InRelease
Ign file: jessie InRelease
Ign file: jessie InRelease

[Code] .....

Here is my rather primitive but functional /etc/apt/sources.list:

Code: Select all# deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 8.2.0 _Jessie_ - Official amd64 DVD Binary-1 20150906-11:13]/ jessie contrib main
# deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 8.2.0 _Jessie_ - Official amd64 DVD Binary-1 20150906-11:13]/ jessie contrib main
deb file:/dvd1 jessie main contrib
deb file:/dvd2 jessie main contrib
deb file:/dvd3 jessie main contrib

[Code] ....

So what exactly have I screwed up?

Fedora :: Installed Packages Not Checked In Yum Extender?

Feb 14, 2010

I have Fedora 11 x86_64. I always apply all updates as soon as the Software Update applet announces them. I recall that there was an update for yumex recently to version 2.9.7. It is very nice because it now remembers the window size. But it used to display installed packages with the check box ticked. That feature seems to have disappeared. This makes it difficult when searching for something. For example, a friend who also has Fedora 11 was having difficulty with bluetooth. Since it is working fine for me I wanted to search on "bluetooth" to get a list of all packages that I have installed so he could be sure he had the same packages installed. I got a list of packages but there was no way to tell which were installed and which were not.

Debian :: Number Of Debian Users?

Oct 29, 2010

I don't want to start any kind of flame war or comparison with any other distros, but I'm curious how many users of Debian there are.For example, there's the popcon system which tells you for each package what percentage of popcon users have that package installed. Which is great, but what total number of users does that equate to? Is there any way to tell whether popcon is used by 90% of Debian users, or 1%, or 0.01%? if popcon says that a package is installed by 0.5% of users, how many is that? Even a rough guesstimate would be interesting.

I am wondering if there is a better approach now, or if this approach is still good, and I was just wondering if someone could double-check the code, see if its good. I have an old dell laying around, and I thought it was finally time to put it to good use. So here it is.[URL]..
