A very strange thing happened to me today after upgrading a Lenny server to Squeeze. All seems to be working great except for the fact that I cannot join the server to our domain (made a work copy of the virtual machine holding Debian, upgraded that, renamed and changed IP).
The problem I'm having is related to Samba as far as I can tell. On the Lenny server(s) I have the 'net' command to join a server to a domain but not on the upgraded version (Squeeze). It just says command not found and there's indeed no 'net' in /usr/bin where it's supposed to be.
I imagine that something went wrong upgrading Samba although the rest works, the daemons are running, kerberos works (kinit, klist), and so on, I only miss the net command.
Is there a way to install that separately or which package do I have to reinstall (samba-common, sambafs, ...)?
I have other servers (clean install and upgrade from Lenny to Squeeze) that do have the command in /usr/bin. Can I just copy it over from one to another or do I have to remove and reinstall Samba all together?
And then i get an error instead of my shared files
I assure that the /home/baronobeefdip/share directory exsists and i am using the username and password that exsist on the server's system (the username is baronobeefdip and the password i would like to keep secret)
What am i doing wrong here because something is wrong
And for refernece here is the result from the
I want to the get one that is commented as the "debian floor computer"
I am still running the linux-image-2.6.32-5-686 kernel a computer with squeeze. I installed squeeze on it when it was unstable. I would like to bring up to the new stable state.Should I do apt-get install linux-image-2.6.32-5-686or should Iapt-get dist-upgrade
how to install Dropbox for Debian Squeeze from source.Please read everything before you begin. I prepared it as I installed Dropbox for my own system. Please Note: I use sudo, you may have to use root or 'su' from the command line. If you don't know the difference between sudo and su, then you shouldn't try this until you know. At the time I did this, the lastest dropbox version was 0.6.7.
Below is the recipe I've used to compile dwm from source on Squeeze
su apt-get install devscripts debian-keyring apt-get build-dep dwm exit
It all seems to work, however debuild gave an error about secret keys. Is this a sensible procedure? What happens in the (probably unlikely) event there is another source patch?I've gone to a tiling window manager as the result of the purchase of a wide screen LCD monitor. I like to have some stuff down the right hand side when running Firefox and OpenOffice in the main panes. Any configuration tricks welcome. Modern screens are the wrong shape!
I've just install debian squeeze version, or the testing one, but I am not really happy with it. Is not listening me all the time. If I install the debian stable I don't have internet connection. Is it possible to update the kernel somehow using the testing version?
I have been trying to install a command line Debian Squeeze system on n Eee PC 701., but have run into a number of problems:
1) All install info I can find assumes that the person wants to install a GUI system of some sort. 2) The Eee PC has a unique 2 MB. partition that needs to be preserved, so no guided install. 3) The Eee PC has an SSD instead of an HD. Most postings I have seen recommend an install without a swap partition, but the install (both live and text) seems to choke and despite a fresh formatting of the existing partition, claims to be overwriting existing files. 4) I can understand from the wiki that the Eee PC wireless driver (Atheros) should be included in Squeeze, but when the wireless connection and password is added, the installer claims that the password is not correct, despite me having checked it a number of times.
I hope someone can help me out. I just want to use the Eee PC for low resource stuff done on the cli like using a text based web browser to access the net through a wireless router and to hook it up to an external USB HD and to my stereo, to play my music collection.
I installed Firestarter firewall on debian Squeeze.Now i note there is a gui available in System->Administration which apparently does not need to be running all the time - its not set up to start on boot.When I boot I notice the boot message has a line saying "Starting Firestarter firewall .... failed"When I am logged in and type "/etc/init.d/firestarter status" as the Firestarter FAQs say, I get"Firestarter is running... ... (warning)"I can run the gui manually and still same message.
I just a newbie.i want to try customize my desktop.i found a website shown linux desktop very greatfull, like this :but i don't know how to start it.any expert guys please let me know the guiding for me to start this.
I installed Debian Squeeze with no issues. I went to install latest Nvidia driver as done previously with Lenny. Used instructions that worked on lenny from "the trooper" [url]
Downloaded th latest driver for my GeForce 7300 GS vidio card, driver package NVIDIA-Linux-x86-260.19.12.run
Used "method # 2 as described in HOW TO,as it worked perfectly in the past on Lenny. Only syntax I changed was instead of gdm I typed gdm3 as it appears that is the new name for gnome in Squeeze.
Did as folows:
Now the trouble showed up, Unfortunatly I can only go off my memory. A question was asked stating that something did not match, it needed a 3 and the driver had a 4 version or somethng of this sort. then it asked if I new what I was doing (and I lied) and selected yes. And whammo, it didn't work. (This question was asked when i did in Lenny and it is working perfectly still on that system). I now can not boot to GUI, I notice when system boots it starts in "S" mode although I select normal boot from grub2.
Not too bad if I got to reinstall as little is on the system. I just want to know what I am missing on the instalation deal or should I be going about this difrently with Squeeze.
This topic began in the Debian Development forum here I have successfully completed both the install and the after installation configuration. I have a fully functional system on this little baby, inspite of the fact that wireless (Broadcom bcm4312), ethernet (Realtek) and sound were initially broken.
There is a lot of assistance out there on the web. In the previous thread, I was having trouble installing any debian on a usb stick. The issues that needed resolving were 1. Bad stick
2. Incompatible kernels between boot.img and .iso
3. The method of copying .iso to the stick that finally worked was wget My first successful usb install was Lenny. Even though I upgraded the stock system with lenny-backports, I could not get wireless, ethernet or sound working the only connection I could get to the internet was through my 3g stick and that was not performing up to it's capability. I manually configured wvdial to get that working.
I attempted an upgrade to squeeze several times and each time the upgrade trashed the system. I finally found squeeze boot.img and .iso files from an eee pc blog. This allowed a fresh install of Squeeze and I was making progress. The little atom processor would not handle the b43-fwcutter driver, so I compiled one from the Broadcom site written especially for the atom processor. Now I had cable broadband supplied wireless. I got my ethernet working with help from the Gnome site technical specs on Network Manager. Simply changing ifupdown=false to ifupdown=true in the network manager config file.
Sound was activated by help from a blog entitled "Debian on the Dell Mini 9" My head is spinning now or I would be more specific and instructive on all I did to get this baby up and running. If anyone asks, I may do a how-to.
PS: Posted from that Dell Mini 9 running Debian Squeeze.
Debian Lenny worked just great. That was my first experience of Debian. The installer recognised all my hardware and the system was soon up and running brilliantly with a few tweaks. Confident of Debian's reliability, I decided to move to Debian 6 and did a fresh install, with downloads of the new operating system rather than a distribution upgrade. The installation routines have not worked for the same computer system. I don't know if its hardware not being recognised by Debian 6 that were recognised without a problem by Debian 5??
At first, the boot-up flipped at "Waiting for /dev to be fully populated," there was a kernal panic then Debian disappeared. No signal was sent to the monitor and I had to switch off the computer manually I was able to look into the Debian 6 OS from Arch Linux, installed on different partitions of the same hard-drive. I am able to overwrite the Debian files as root from Arch. My i686 machine has PATA IDE drives.
Why are 2) dbus and the 3) avahi-demon failing? I need to get them started first so that I can get an internet connection and try and correct the problem with X and the wrong Nvidia driver. Is there some configuration I can do either from Arch, where I am now, or the bash prompt on Debian? Thanks in advance.
I want to install VGA driver on debian squeeze. my VGA is "Intel Corporation 82G33/G31 Express Integrated Graphics Controller".I do not know which driver I must install for this VGA.Does Linux recognize related driver ?
Once in kde, after an undefined time (can be minutes or hours), mouse cursor start to have a fixed shape (if i am in iceweasel on a link, the mouse can get locked with the hand shape). In this state, the mouse cursor can still be moved, but no program can be launched or closed (X) in kde. I still can launch a new console now (ctrl+atl+F2), "ps" don't show any process consuming cpu (all processes are near 0). "sensors" shows 55*C. Other commands as "kill" going to lock, they don't work and at the same time they don't return the cursor to the shell.
On my squeeze OS I have texlive-latex3 installed and I wanted to install revtex package of the American Physical Society. While trying to install I was prompted to run #unzip revtex4-1-tds.zip -d /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/ However my machine does not have /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/ Instead it has /usr/local/share/texmf/ Will it be all right if I insert this location after -d ?
i screwed up a good debian install with wine. before i do it again i want to know what the best way to get and install wine . AMD 64, toshiba L645D laptop with 3G ram. ATI radon openGL . I read several pages and seems they suggest to compile from source (which i can do i think). others say to use aptitude .
I have not been able to write to DVDs since the install except for once when luck seemed to play more a part than anything else. Does anyone have a fix for this?Well, after letting it sit and sit and sit, it looks like it does write the data. But, it's writing about 1/2 of a DVD for just 2 500K files.
User familai with amd64 for computational chemistry and i386 for desktop. Seeking advice from users who succeeded in arranging a laptop with Debian squeeze or lenny, wireless LAN, 3D acceleration video, flash for speech. The laptop WITH STANDARD USA KEYBOARD should be available from European market resellers.
I searched the forum for this, but didn't find anything about it: when I try to shut down the computer, it returns to the login screen. When I log back in and shutdown again, it shuts down.Squeeze works perfectly, but this is the only thing that doesn't work like it should. Is this a setting I should change somewhere?
After upgrading to Squeeze, which comes with kernel 2.6.32, my system encountered DRM error and booted up with a blank screen. This happened intermittently. Searches on the Web did not give a definite answer. It seemed there was a bug in the kernel and this was cleared since 2.6.31 but I am using 2.6.32.
