Debian :: Testing Install Cannot Recognize 2 Terabytes Harddisks?

Jul 27, 2010

Visibly the conventional Cdrom of Debian Testing Install cannot recognize 2 terabytes harddisks. Well this is surprising since it is quite common nowadays to use 2TB

Business card cdrom can see them and install it

Debian :: Install Debian Testing On A Hardisk With 5pct Of Bad Clusters / Sectors?

Jan 4, 2010

I have an harddisk which is old, since many years >10 years, and I recall I crashed few clusters using windows programs which were old and harddisk stuffs doing. So the pc lives with bad clusters, this pc lives very well since many years.Question, the pc has woody debian, which let us to install and exclude bad sectors during install. Bad clusters was an usual thing in the past, but today not anymore.Unfortunately debian squeeze installer coders had the good idea to remove the " bad cluster checking " before installing debian, during install (cdrom netinst).

Debian :: Cannot Install Vlc On Testing?

Jul 11, 2011

I'm new to Debian, but because I'm used to Ubuntu and Mint, I searched in Gnome menu for a link to Synaptic, and there isn't one, so I opened synaptic from Terminal, using "synapric" command as root. I don't know if this is the proper way to open Synaptic, but when I try to install VLC, Synaptic returns the following message in a pop-up dialog box:

Please insert the disk labeled:
Debian GNU/Linux testing _Wheezy_ - Official Snapshot

Debian :: Debian Testing Vs Debian Stable With Testing Repositories?

Feb 28, 2009

I am a ubuntu user but I want to go to the next level to use debian because what I heard of it, but I get confused to what to install on my computer do I install debian testing or debain stable with testing repositories.

- I want to use this system to the home use only.
- I want to use the newest packages because the stable packages is too old to use.
- What about using more than one repository i.e stable with testing with unstable at the same time (the same sourcelist)
- Is the testing and unstable sid packages good enough for the home use?

Debian Installation :: Desktop Install Disk Go For Testing?

Dec 31, 2010

Where's the Testing Desktop Install CD? As I look at the Debian site the only choices I see are the massive full disk set, or the net-install CD's (url). The last time I tried to use the net-install method I got complex warning messages that a different kernel was installed--along with cryptic instructions I didn't understand. So where did the single CD, Desktop install disk go for testing?

Debian Hardware :: Testing Fails To Boot After Install On Ppc

Nov 14, 2015

I was planning on installing Stretch on my iBook G4. So I got my netinst cd and went through the install process. Everything was fine till I got to the section where I selected my mirrors. I chose the US/ mirror and it failed so I tried the and that failed as well. Then I tried the third on the list and I was able to connect and get my packages. The install completed, however when I rebooted the bootup froze. So I thought that it could my cd so I went and grabbed the latest stretch iso from the site.

Yet again I ran into issues. The biggest was that I kept getting sent back to install menu to manually select what steps I wanted to do. I found this odd since normally the install will just walk you through. Then I ran into the same issues with mirrors. finally the install completed and I was rebooted. However the boot failed again, but this I got dropped into the initramfs shell. Should I file this as bug with the debain-installer package?

Debian Installation :: Testing Install: Network Configuration Fails?

I'm trying to install Debian-testing to an ASUS 1018P netbook on which I have successfully installed Arch in the past.

Debian :: Fresh Testing Install: Display 'broken' After KDE Login

Feb 1, 2011

I have downloaded the latest testing image today (debian-testing-amd64-kde-CD-1.iso), install went just fine.

On boot, I get as far as the KDE login screen, where my user and password are seemingly accepted. Seemingly, as after this point, the screen is a complete mess. This 'mess' differs between attempts: it could be full of black and white squares, themselves made up of noise pixels; once it was like a normal screen after it had been through a blender, i.e. bits of the DE but awfully mixed up. (My judgement would be that the video pointers is set to point at the wrong part of memory... or is that my old-school point of view getting in the way? Whichever, it provides you with an idea of what it looks like.)

Running on an Nvidia GTS250 card, with two monitors (2 x DVI).

I have not installed any NV propriety drivers, as this is the first boot(s).

There is no xorg.conf present on the system; and I cannot find anything obvious in xorg.log (but then, I wouldn't know what to look for).

I use grub legacy, from my existing PCLOS partition (though this should not be an issue as I get as far as the KDE login screen, pretty as please).

Regarding the install itself, I took the above mentioned testing image as a way to get Squeeze. I assume this was the right way to do this at current time.

Debian Configuration :: Install Fglrx Drivers For ATI Card With Testing?

Debian Multimedia :: Install Gnome On Testing - Broken Packages

Sep 12, 2015

I'm on Debian testing and every time I try to install Gnome I get this:

Code: Select all# alexandernst at stupidbox in ~ [18:51:07]
$ LC_ALL=C sudo tasksel install gnome-desktop --new-install
tasksel: apt-get failed (100)

I tried installing it manually:

Code: Select all# alexandernst at stupidbox in ~ [18:51:35]
$ LC_ALL=C sudo apt-get install gnome                     
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done

[Code] ....

Is this a problem in Debian repos (held packages) or I'm actually doing something wrong?

Debian Multimedia :: Testing Fresh Install With GTK3 Themes

Apr 28, 2016

since few days I have installed a fresh debian testing on my new laptop, I am using XFCE4 as DE, I noticed that when I use these themes: greybird, bluebird and albatross the GTK3 applications (mostly from gnome 3 stack) do not display correctly the application. I have another laptop with an older debian testing with XFCE4 and the GTK3 themes work properly. The only relevant difference between the old computer and the new one are the video driver, the older use radeonsi driver and newest the nvidia blob binary.

Ubuntu :: Faster Way To Transfer 2 Terabytes

Jul 6, 2010

I need to find a fast way to copy a folder containing about 2 terabytes over my home network to another Ubuntu machine.In the past I have used RSYNC over ssh, but this is far too slow for this much data (probably the ssh encryption overhead slowing things down)I have looked at using SAMBA, but this seems geared for a mixed Linux/Windows network. Also I don't know if SAMBA will be appreciably faster.

General :: Put Harddisks Of A Md-software-raid To Standby?

Aug 26, 2011

I have a home-fileserver with 6 desktop harddisks in a md-raid.

The server isn't accessed a lot, so I think it would be good for the harddrives to go in standby-mode after some idle time (e.g. with the hdparm -S or hd-idle command).

Is this safe when using mdadm or could this cause errors/degraded harddisks?

Debian :: "passwd: System Error" After Squeeze (testing) Install?

Mar 24, 2010

The strangest thing happened. I installed Debian testing with the "squeeze Alpha1" netinstall cd. All seemed to go well and the installer made me pick a root password and create a normal user account. However, after the first boot my user account did not work and I could also not login as root, it looked liked I forgot the passwords for both accounts. When rebooted in recovery mode, I got Code: sulogin: root account is locked and I was automatically logged in as root without being asked for a password. Then I found out that the normal user account does not exist. I created a user acount and logged into it. I did passwd to set a password, but I got Code: passwd: Authentication token manipulation error Also, there was no home directory for the new user.

Hardware :: Lowlevel Tool To Erase Data From Harddisks Completely?

Mar 9, 2011

For several days I have tried to create a new raid5 array, after accidently blowing up the old one.But it seems that the raid data was burned into the harddisks ineradicably. I keep seeing the raid data that was used for the old array. I have tried everything to remove the old data, even installed a new distro but still I see the old data.My last hope is to erase the disks with a lowlevel tool to make a clean start.

Software :: Debian Testing Install - Bad Software?

Mar 4, 2011

Well I see lots of cries for help over on Lately it's been pretty scary, especially if you're running KDE. Yesterday, since my disk died and I had to replace it, I thought I'd download and install the new Testing. As it's the new format disk (WD Black 2.5" 750GB 7200rpm) I needed a newer kernel to partition the disk on 1M boundries (see the WD site), so I carefully loaded the latest Ubuntu Live, and used gparted to part and format the drive. I had to do this because you have to use a kernel above 2.6.32 and Debian doesn't have it yet.

So then I booted the Testing install CD, which BTW is no longer a CD but a DVD for the KDE version forcing me to make a trip to the store, and began the install. Things were fine until right after the disk setup; I manually set up the parts and assigned mountpoints, being careful to not format, and committed the changes.

The system then proceeded to base system install, whereupon it promptly threw an exception: "Invalid release file: no entry for main/binary-amd64/Packages." Hm, no entry for the packages... that seems pretty important. You'd think they'd notice that Yes, I then tried formatting, and no it didn't change anything. I've spent my whole two days off fscking with this, and now have no computer to boot to, and no prospect of when this may ever be fixed. I tell you, I've run Debian exclusively for 14 years, and I don't know how the Gnome side is doing, but KDE is falling to pieces.

Debian :: Tablet Features For LMDE (Debian Testing), Fujitsu T4310?

Jul 4, 2011

I tend to stay on for long time. My machine is a Fujitsu T4310 tablet. I have got all tablet features previously working properly when I was on Isadora Mint. After installing LMDE to my surprise basic features of the tablet simply worked out of the box but I'm missing a few important features like multitouch, screen rotate and buttons in tablet mode.

As far as my experience with Isadora, it needed a driver called "fjbtndrv", but I couldn't find it in the repos, moreover, I think it might need some tweeks to get it behaving properly. I found some refferences but it refers to other ubuntu based distros, which I can't use of course.

p.s. prefere a solution other than compiling it myself, it looks scary and has lots of dependencies.

Debian Installation :: Debian Testing Does Not See The Network Card?

Debian :: How To Run 'Testing'

Aug 24, 2010

I've heard a lot of talk about people running 'Testing' as a rolling release version of Debian. As I have a spare box to play with, I wanted to see what this was like. I've done a minimal install of Squeeze and had a look at /etc/apt/sources.list. As I would expect, the file refers to Squeeze and not 'testing' (I think Woody used to go for stable/ testing etc, but this then got changed). In order to run 'Testing', can I just replace the Squeeze references and do:
