Debian :: Openssh-server Auto Configuration Fails When Upgrading Lenny To Squeeze?

Sep 10, 2010

I'm in need of a bit of assistance from you Debian users. I have two servers that I thought were identical installations, both running Debian Lenny. Tonight I started the upgrade to Squeeze on both servers and one of them went smooth. The other one started out good but fails on the postconfiguration of openssh-server. I'm getting the following message:

Setting up openssh-server (1:5.5p1-4) ...
Auto configuration failed
2524:error:0E079065:configuration file routines:DEF_LOAD_BIO:missing equal sign:conf_def.c:366:line 67
invoke-rc.d: initscript ssh, action "restart" failed.


It looks like there's an error in one of the files in openssh-server that prohibits it from installing correctly. However on the other server it all went well.

Debian Configuration :: Openssh-server Fails To Restart During Update?

Feb 12, 2010

So this very (for me) important little package fails me once again. But this time it refuses to restart/start

This is the output:

Setting up openssh-server (1:5.3p1:-1)
Restarting OpenBSD Secure Shell Server: sshd: failed!
/dev/null is not a character device!
invoke-rc.d: initscript ssh, action "restart" failed.


The error is within the /etc/init.d/ssh script. ("error")

This is in squeeze so I can only blame my self, but.. This is one of the packages that fair and square should not fail to install/update/start/restart no mather what!

Debian Configuration :: PCMCIA USB - Worked In Lenny, Not In Squeeze?

Apr 25, 2011

I had this PCMCIA USB 2.0 card that worked in Lenny when I put this laptop into my closet in late 2009. I brought it back out a few weeks ago and put a fresh install of Squeeze on it, and it does not recognize the card. dmesg says something about "ignoring the device" (sorry, I don't have the machine in front of me).

Laptop in question is a Toshiba Tecra 8000. The PCMCIA card... has no brand on it whatsoever. I thought I had the box somewhere, but I have been unable to find it.

Debian Configuration :: Unable To Use RAID On Lenny To Squeeze Update

Mar 29, 2010

Have my proxy running on Lenny and tried to upgrade to squeeze. Originally the system was installed on Etch and upgrading to Lenny was no problem. In the system i have two RAID1 volumes, md0 for / and md1 for /home. For upgrading i added the sources to my apt.conf and startet dist-upgrade. During the installation procedure, when installing udev I was advised to install the new kernel first and continue upgrade after booting the kernel. so I installed the kernel by "apt-get install linux-image-2.6-686. When generating initramfs there was a message, that there are no arrays defined in /etc/mdadm/mdadm.conf I took a look and there were none. mdadm seems to have been update before.

I then added the lines for RAID definition and added the data for UUID The UUID I got from the output of "mdadm --detail /dev/md0"
What I don't understand: blkid gives the same UUIDs for the first partitions of the RAID and a different UUID for /dev/md0 and /dev/md1 than mdadm --detail The update of initramfs for kernel 2.6.32 then gives this result:

update-initramfs -u -k 2.6.32-3-686
update-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-2.6.32-3-686
W: Possible missing firmware /lib/firmware/e100/d102e_ucode.bin for module e100
W: Possible missing firmware /lib/firmware/e100/d101s_ucode.bin for module e100

Debian Configuration :: Stop Squeeze Auto Using My Mobile As Wired Network?

May 25, 2010

I have Debian Squeeze AMD64 bit release. It finds my wired ethernet connection and ues itfine, although nothing shows up in the top right corner under the networking icon.

When I plug my mobile phone in (HTC S620) it always uses this as the main internet connection and then even if disconnected wont use my wired connection until I reboot.

Is there a way to stop it doing this or at least have my wired connction as an option so I can just click to reconnect to my ethernet connection?

Debian Configuration :: Update-initramfs Fails When Upgrading To Jessie

Oct 17, 2015

I'm just completing an upgrade from wheezy to jessie and get the following error

Code: Select allProcessing triggers for initramfs-tools (0.120) ...
update-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-3.2.0-4-amd64
E: intel-microcode: unsupported kernel version!

With a message like this I'm wondering if it's safe to reboot as well as how to resolve.

Is this somehow related to the change to only update the microcode on boot as reported earlier in the upgrade?

Code: Select allintel-microcode: microcode will be updated at next boot

General :: Upgrading Encrypted System From Lenny To Squeeze

Apr 8, 2011

I'm looking to upgrade from Lenny to Squeeze and would like to check if there's anything special I need to do. Software-wise there's nothing out of the ordinary on the system but, while looking into upgrading, I've read some horror stories regarding encrypted systems. I've only previously installed from fresh.

Here is how my current partitions/filesystems are set out:
. sda1/sdb1 > raid > ext2: boot
. sda2/sdb2 > raid > luks > lvm > ext3: root
. sda2/sdb2 > raid > luks > lvm > ext3: swap
. sda2/sdb2 > raid > luks > lvm > xfs: data
. sdc1/sdd1 > raid > luks > lvm > freespace: vms

Would this just be a standard upgrade, as per these? [URL]. I will be backing up important data before I attempt to upgrade.

Debian :: Why Remote X Is Slow - Squeeze Client - Lenny Server?

Aug 19, 2010

I have one headless squeeze and two notebooks (one squeeze, one lenny).

When I have X (on headless squeeze) on lenny notebook, it is unacceptably slow. Something like it takes 3-10 seconds to redraw window (acroread, iceweasel, possibly xterm.)

It is not so slow when I use squeeze notebook. Yesterday, I upgraded lenny one to squeeze. Then, it is not slow any more!

Debian Configuration :: Squeeze: Suspend/hibernate Resume Fails With Radeon Graphics

Aug 6, 2010

I am running Squeeze on an older Compaq EVO laptop with radeon graphics.

A few months ago, after an upgrade, suspend and hibernate stopped working. The suspend or hibernate worked fine, but the resume just hung with a black screen. I finally got around to looking into it and found a workaround.

The workaround is to disable Kernel Mode Setting for the radeon. This can be done by adding the boot parameter "radeon.modeset=0" or by editing /etc/modprobe.d/radeon-kms.conf so that it includes the line "options radeon modeset=0".

If you are interested in the details, you can search for problem reports related to radeon kernel mode setting.

Debian Configuration :: OpenSSH Is Extremely Laggy?

Aug 27, 2010

I have an old computer a friend of mine found in a dumpster, and I've decided to use it as a file server. After finally getting it to connect to my wifi network, I tried connecting to it via OpenSSH on my main desktop. After I connected, I noticed OpenSSH was being very laggy. Whenever I type anything in there's a very noticable and annoying delay from when I type it to when it appears on screen. Now, a while ago a friend of mine was helping me fix my laptop when fglrx drivers broke x, and I set up openssh on there so he could access it. According to him, there was no lag (and he's half-way across the globe, whereas my file server is in the other room). The computer is an old Pentium 4 with one and a half gigs of RAM, two hard drives (one I use for the os/swapping and the other I use for /home). It's connected to wifi via a spare USB Linksys 802.11 bg adaptor I found lying around, and it's using the default drivers that come with Debian to connect.

Debian Configuration :: PasswordAuthentication In Openssh And Freenx?

May 31, 2011

I have VNC working but I like how freenx starts in it's own session. It is handy for when my account is not logged into the server and VNC hasn't started.I have freenx working but it requires sshd_config to enable PasswordAuthentication. This isn't a major security problem at the moment since I have deny.hosts running but I still don't like it enabled. I would much rather only use the keys.

Debian Configuration :: DHCP Server In Squeeze Appears Broken?

Dec 3, 2010

Alright, I edited "/etc/default/isc-dhcp-server" and set "eth0" as the only thing listed for interfaces. I also have the code below in "/etc/dhcp/dhcp3/dhcpd.conf" and I even copied it to "/etc/dhcp/dhcpd.conf" for good measure, and I can't get the DHCP server to start. As an intermediate to advanced user, I am under the high assumption that it is broken since everything in the docs has been set. I have googled for two days and cannot find a fix, so before I report it as a broken package, would somebody with more experience with the package chime in?

Configuration file:
subnet netmask {
option domain-name-servers;
option broadcast-address;


I hid my wireless setup because it contains my WiFi network info including key. This box is routing, doing DNS resolution, and firewalling just fine. I just cannot get the friggin' DHCP server to start no matter what I try.

Oh, and is it safe to delete "/etc/dhcp" or "/etc/dhcp3"? They appear to be duplicates of each other...

Debian Configuration :: Dhcpd Server Behavior Seems To Have Changed In Squeeze?

Aug 9, 2011

I've been using dhcpd for address assignments to PCs for a very long time with no issues. I recently upgraded from lenny to squeeze and now dhcpd seems to have new behavior which I can't seem to change. Here's what I want to do. First, I have a simple situation and don't want to get involved with dynamic DNS updates. I have host statements for each of my PCs and a range statement for cases where I install a new device and don't yet have a host statement for it. Previously, I could discover the ethernet address for the new device from the dhcpd log and add a host statement with an address of my choosing for the new device.

I'd then restart dhcpd and do something like reboot the device or issue an ipconfig /renew statement on the new PC. What would happen is that the old dynamically assigned IP address would be NAKed and the device would do a DHCPDISCOVER, etc. and get the new IP address I specified in the dhcpd.conf host statement. In squeeze, this no longer works. The client asks for the old address it got dynamically and the server just says yes. I can't seem to find a way to get it to NAK the dynamic address and use the new address I've specified in the host statement. I'd appreciate any enlightenment on how this is now supposed to be done. Here's my simplified dhcpd.conf file:

log-facility daemon;
ddns-update-style none;


Note that the address here was assigned based on a previous range statement and isn't consistent with the above config file.

Debian Configuration :: Tests And Playing Around With Postfix In A Test Squeeze Server?

Feb 15, 2011

I'm doing some tests and playing around with postfix in a test squeeze server. What I want to achieve is a postfix mail server using ports 465 and 587 with smtp authentication to send mails. I followed this howto: [URL].. and I'm using a php script with pear functions to test sending emails to a gmail test account of mine. This is the script:

require_once "Mail.php";
$from = "Webmaster <webmaster@server>";
$to = "My Name <>";
$subject = "This is sent with pear as a test";
$body = "This is the body of the message";

Debian :: Lenny Vs Squeeze?

Feb 13, 2011

Now that the stable version of Squeeze is available, the newbie that I am is asking himself this almost existential question: should I get Squeeze or stick to Lenny?Some arguments in favors of Lenny that are coming into his mind are that there is more material, tutorials, in brief, more resources to find as to learn and solve problems.

But is this true and if yes, is it a reason?What about security?There is also this widespread saying that tells to always get the last release for performance and security reasons.Being in this position where I obviously don't have a lot of knowledge and experience to judge myself with all the elements, assessing thoroughly all the differents factors, I would have like to listen you opinion(s) on it.

Debian Configuration :: Auto-login And Auto-connect To Networks

Jun 3, 2010

I press On-button, Debian boots, logs in and automatically connects to the Wireless network AND! to my local pc via LAN. It runs an ssh server, so I can ssh into debian over internet and communicate with the local pc (send a magic packet).Here are my problems:

1) I don't how to log in automatically. This and this doesn't work.
2) I need a network tool that can manage multiple connections and has a reconnect feature. With the default network manager I cannot even connect to more than one network simultaneously although I have two network devices of course.

And I guess I can run all that in console mode, right?

Debian :: Using A Lenny Package In Squeeze?

Jul 5, 2010

I am currently running Debian Lenny on one of my external HDDs and Debian Squeeze on the other one. I found a package I like in lenny but it seems it has not been added to squeeze (yet). The package is ksirc and i like it because it looks and feels like mIRC that I used in windows. My question is can I install the lenny version on squeeze with out it having an adverse effect? My other question is what do I put into the /etc/apt/sources.list to do this? i now see that ksirc is also available in a sid (unstable) version. Is it safe to install this one to my squeeze distro? and again what do I need to add to my sources.list to do this?

Or could I just download the deb package and install it using dpkg? New to this and just looking for the best way to get a favorite software package.

Debian :: Can't Upgrade From Lenny To Squeeze

Sep 15, 2010

I run into a problem when trying to update from lenny to squeeze. Seems that util-linux fails to install due to some error and that this causes xorg as well as udev to fail. If this is the case then it might be a bug in the post-installation script for util-linux..Am I on the right track or is it completely wrong?

Debian :: Lenny Or Squeeze With Ati Card

Mar 31, 2010

I have Ati HD 4890 card and I need to get it working with game and 3d-software. Which Debian should I choose to get those ati proprietary drivers to work as stable and easily? Can I get them working all the time with Squeeze/Unstable or should I use Lenny for that? If they work with all of them, I'd like to take Squeeze (or is unstable as stable? name doesn't say that at least). So which one I should choose? Can a newbie get fglrx to work on Squeeze?

Debian :: Lenny Package In Squeeze

Mar 20, 2011

I need libnet0 on a squeeze installation, so I can compile nemesis, which unfortunately has not been an active project. It depends on libnet0, which is not in the squeeze repository.I can compile nemesis, but will it ok to do this the same way with the libnet0 library? Or should I manipulate the /etc/sources.list to be able to install it from the lenny repositories? (this doesn't sound right...Better get the sources? And what happens when I compile it? Can I safely have libnet0 and libnet1 on the same installation?
