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.
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.
How to get Java applet running on Squeeze, jre-6u26-linux, is needed to be installed, but I counld not do it, is there any alternative way to get Java applet working ? It works on Lenny, but I am moving to Squeeze.
Is not working my microphone in Deban. In Ubuntu or MW7 all works correctly.
Here are some outputs of commands:
root@debian:/home/brok# uname -a Linux debian 2.6.32-5-amd64 #1 SMP Tue Jun 14 09:42:28 UTC 2011 x86_64 GNU/Linux root@debian:/home/brok# lsb_release -a LSB Version: core-2.0-amd64:core-2.0-noarch:core-3.0-amd64:core-3.0-noarch:core-3.1-amd64:core-3.1-noarch:core-3.2-amd64:core-3.2-noarch Distributor ID: Debian
I don't print much, but tonight needed to print and found that none of the printers were listed in Okular or Openoffice, then when I tried to open Cups Administration http://localhost:631/ I got the error message Connection to Server Refused
I am moving over to debian from ubuntu, and the latest install is to an acer aspire one netbook, the wireless card seems to be working and I can see available networks and even connect to mine (with WPA encryption) via the gnome network manager, however opening a browser or pinging both local and external machines all fail. its as if the OS does not not know to use the card. The wired works fine.
If memory serves the card is identified by lspci as Atheros AR5007.
There is no reference to wlan0 in etc/network/interfaces.
I do not have that system on now and have to leave for work, but I can post any further info from conf files etc as required when i get home tonight... Just thought I'd post a quick description in case I'm missing something obvious...
My audio is working, but when i put my usb speaker in it, it doesnt redirect sound to the speaker, just continues to play from the laptop.
In gnome, System->Prefernence->Sound shows the following: Device: HDA ATI SB Device: Logitech USB speaker (Alsa Mixer) lsusb shows: Bus 002 Device 003: ID 046d:0a04 Logitech, Inc. V20 portable speakers (USB powered) dmesg shows: [ 1530.060050] usb 2-1: new full speed USB device using ohci_hcd and address 3 [ 1530.229080] usb 2-1: New USB device found, idVendor=046d, idProduct=0a04
my usb speaker has volume control-up/down, mute, that seems to work, just no sound coming out of it. I am running Squeeze 6.01, kernel 2.6.32-5-686 Also I have 2 computers with squeeze 6.01 installed, both doesnt output usb sound, but the speaker works fine with winXp and ubuntu.
This morning i installed Debian Squeeze and I'm sure it that was a good choice! I got my wireless stick to work (Linksys: Wusb600n v2), installed Chromium, VLC and some other stuff... and ye. I want to get Compiz working on my system! I'm not sure that my current drivers can deal with it, thought. I'm not good at Linux and I don't know what should I install (if there is something) so that I can have get better performance from my video-card. I made HardInfo report of my system. What are my options? How can I make the performance better and, maybe, run Compiz?
I have a Fujitsu Siemans Amilo A1630 installed with squeeze and am having problems making the headphone jack work with ALSA, there is no sound from this port and jack auto-detect does not work. All drivers are present and correct and necessary modules for my sound device appear to be loading properly, the device seems fully functional except for headphones.
I have debian with kde on a laptop with a built in ps/2 keyboard and touch pad mouse which have been working without problem since i bought the computer. However, recently i booted the computer up and all of a sudden the mouse and keyboard are not functioning. I know it is not a hardware problem because i can type in the BIOS password, make the selection between normal and recovery mode in grub, and can type in all of my passwords to unencrypt my hard drive.
Also, it recognizes the keyboard all the way up until the point where kde starts, at which point it loads a login screen with the mouse and cursor on the screen, but no ability to type, not even caps lock or ctrl+alt+f1 to switch to console mode. does anyone know why this is? I have performed not updates and have not changed the configuration of my computer so i am not sure why this would happen.
P.S.1 out 15 times when i load the part where i need to type in the passwords to unencrypt the hard drive the keyboard will stop working then instaed of with kde.
Also, doing /etc/init.d/start/ gdm3 says Starting GNOME display manager: gdm3 but it doesn't do anything. I tried pressing ctrl+f1 all the way to ctrl+f12 and nothing. What does work however is sudo gdm3 (with the "ati"/"radeon" driver --- nothing works at all with fglrx).
I am trying to get fglrx working because I want to fix this compiz issue I've been having here which could be related to the shortcomings of the "ati"/"radeon" driver: viewtopic.php?f=10&t=40991&p=312577#p312577
After a system update a couple of days back - which as far as I can remember included some xorg packages - neither of the policy files I have written for my keyboard, synaptics touchpad and mouse work.Below are the files and the Xorg log file.
I need help in getting Skype to work with Debian Squeeze.The problem is that there's no 64 bit version of Skype for Debian Squeeze and the other versions (Skype static and Skype Ubuntu 64 bit) makes Skype crash after login. Is it possible to get the 32bit version of Skype working with Debian Squeeze and how about other solutions?
i'm trying to get my WLan working, i do have a Broadcom BCM4312 lpphy WLan-Adapter (pci-id according to lspci -vnn is 14e4:4315) in my Lenove ideapad S12. My System is Debian Lenny, but in order for the WLan-Adapter to work I installed the 2.6.32-3-686 Kernel from debian squeeze (using apt-pinning). I than installed the b43-firmware as described in the debian wiki [URL]. I updated the init-ramfs, everything is working as expected, except for WLan.
It shows up using iwconfig, i can get it up and down using ifconfig (or ifup, ifdown). I can't do a scan using iwlist - it says: % iwlist wlan0 scan > Failed to read scan data : Resource temporarily unavailable
It always fails, but not with the same error message. Sometimes it also comes up with > device or resource busy
Using dmesg I see reports about a fatal DMA error, resulting in a controller RESET. It says it's loading firmware 478.104 .
I recently updated to squeeze following the Debian release note steps, and most everything went smoothly. However, I'm now unable to get into the Nagios web interface. The service is still running and sends email notifications of issues as usual, but logging into the web interface gives me a 403 Forbidden error.
I have been using my system for couple of weeks, and normally update software when the icon is displayed on top bar (gnome). Last couple of days there were updates for X, and I am not sure whether that is the cause of my problem. Once bootup, I get the login screen. When enter the password the login screen keep coming back. there is no error about any password issue, or anything. It keeps prompt me to enter the password.
I could login back the following way.
1. ctrl + alt + F1 , and login with the same username/pwd as for X 2.change to root 3.pkill gdm3 4.exit from root to user privilege 5. startx
The system starts X correctly and no login screen is displayed. I could use the system as usual.
The only thing I did custom to my system was upgrading to the latest kernel (2.6.38) using the source. This was to get support for my hardware, but that was about a month ago. I do not see anything in /var/log (X, demesg etc).
I'm at the tail end of my upgrade from Lenny to Squeeze and I think this sound issue is the last one I have. As usual I've tried hunting for some answers but it gets very confusing when people are using KDE or PulseAudio or Ubuntu or slightly different configuration to what I have.
My config: Debian Squeeze 2.6.32 Alsa (just because I was using that in Lenny and it was working, no other reason) Gnome Rhythmbox Skype
Skype is pretty good - it has the sound configuration built in, so I say ring the speakers and it does. I say talk to the headset and it does. Rhythmbox is my music player (again just because I was using it under Lenny) however it only wants to play through the headset. I can't seem to get it to play to the speakers attached to the rear port.

I am trying to get my Behringer UCA202 USB sound card working on Debian Squeeze. Under lenny I can get the card working perfectly using modprobe snd-usb-audio then alsaconf. On squeeze however, I did the same thing and followed the debian wiki instructions, but while I can view the card to pull up in alsamixer no sound will play and under "item" both dB gains are stuck on 0.0 despite the channels being unmuted and the volume being up.
[EDIT]: I solved this problem by changing the line in /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf "options snd-usb-audio index=-2" to index=1. I am not sure why that made it work though since I thought that line only changed the priority of using the card.
I have XP and win 7. I want to triple boot with Debian.When I install, grub finds win 7 and XP and says everything should be fine, but then when I boot, only debian appears.This was fixed by doing update-grub2 after logging in.Now, I have win 7 bootloader as an option. However, when I boot into XP, and then reboot, grub disappers. he screen just says welcome to grub and then a blinking cursor.
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
