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 :: Upgrading The Squeeze To Wheezy?

Jul 12, 2011

My Squeeze version is extension three and I had it loaded on my Seagate 1 TB SATA drive. Extension three Squeeze is still on the SATA drive. I loaded Wheezy on my 80 GB Western Digital IDE setup up as a master with my Plextor IDE CD/DVD ROM setup as the slave drive.

Squeeze on my version was LXDE and Wheezy on my version is Gnome gdm3. My Squeeze was loaded with Lilo 22.8 and my Wheezy worked with the regular bootloader. I am just wondering if I use Disk Utility to delete the extension three of Squeeze if it will make both versions unusable.

Debian :: Switch To Apt-get After Upgrading To Squeeze?

Apr 29, 2011

I'm running Lenny, and I've always used aptitude. The upgrade instructions on Debian's website say that apt-get is preferred for doing the upgrade to Squeeze, and also says that apt-get now provides equivalent functionality. So is there any reason to continue to use aptitude after upgrading to Squeeze, and if so, will there be any problems caused by having used apt-get for the upgrade? Or will there be problems caused by switching to apt-get after using aptitude before the upgrade?

Debian Multimedia :: No Sound After Upgrading To Squeeze?

Nov 26, 2010

since I'm new to the the forum and this is my first post I'd like to discuss a quite weird issue. Specifically, after upgrading my Debian system to Squeeze a few days ago, sound is completely lost. This means that I cannot hear any sound from anywhere (mp3, streming videos or anything else) except the system bell . I've done a research on the Internet, looking in other forums and discussions but still, nothing works for me. To begin with, I'm running Squeeze in an HP laptop with HDA Intel soundcard and chipset ALC268. When I'm running aplay -l I get this message:

Darkstar:~# aplay -l
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: Intel [HDA Intel], device 0: ALC268 Analog [ALC268 Analog]

Debian Multimedia :: No Sound In Squeeze After Upgrading Packages?

Feb 24, 2011

I had a broken URL in my /etc/apt/sources.list file, apparently because the site had some kind of server issue and they had to rebuild the site from the ground up. They must have changed their directory structure, because I began getting 404 Errors when upgrading packages. I eventually fixed the URL last week after it had been broken for three months, then I upgraded and rebooted. After that, sound stopped working, even system sounds. My speakers work, because I plugged them into another machine and they worked. I eventually discovered that the master volume was set to "mute", and so was the master volume in the alsamixer. However, even after changing it to 100% for both, sound still doesn't work. I even made sure to issue a "alsactl -store" command toeep the settings there after a reboot. I removed and reinstalled all the alsa and pulse audio packages, made sure that the emu10k1 driver was installed for my Soundblaster Audigy card, and made sure everything was unmuted. I have also tried a million other things that I've found on Google, but nothing seems to work. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Debian Hardware :: SANE Not Working After Upgrading To Squeeze?

Sep 6, 2011

My setup is an HP OfficeJet 4315 All-in-one on a Debian box with the clients using XSANE on Windows boxes.

After upgrading to Squeeze, none of the clients could see the scanner.root could see the scanner from the Debian box.non-root users could not see the scanner from the Debian box.

Obviously, something was wrong with the permissions. After a lot of digging, I found that the /dev entry for the 4315 was owned by root.lp with no world write access.

My solution was to add the saned account to the lp group. I figured that was the most security-conscious way to fix it.

The remote clients can now see the scanner, so everyone is happy.

This may not work for every installation, but for all-in-ones, it probably will.

Debian :: After Upgrading To Squeeze - Can't Mount My HDD Partitions Anymore

Oct 23, 2010

Actually, the /root- filesystem still gets mounted, for all the others I get the following message:

When I type

I get:

But this only happens when using my custom kernel ( When I use the kernel which was automatically installed (2.6.32-5-amd64), the problem doesn't occur.

Is there a kernel option I should have turned on?

I checked the UUID-numbers from the error messages with the output of "blkid" - they match. The rootfs is on sda2 (which gets mounted without error) - so I tried applying the fstab mount options of sda2 to the other partitions - same problem still. what makes the root partition so special? Is it because it's defined by grub.cfg?

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 :: Installing Command Line Debian Squeeze System On Eee PC 701

May 29, 2011

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 :: System Upgrading With Apt-get And Aptitude

Debian :: Kde Paralyzed - System Has Debian Squeeze

Sep 24, 2010

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.

Debian :: Memory Usage On A Squeeze System?

Mar 16, 2011

I use a Debian Squeeze system running off a flash drive, i.e. based on a custom Live image running in persistent mode. It runs great and I am grateful for the existence of Debian . However, I have a question. A lot of the machines I use this pen drive on are quite old, often with 512 MB RAM and old processors. I specifically built my system using XFCE and lightweight apps off an initial live image using the standard-x11 package list (basically just Xorg with drivers and the base system). At first things ran very well, blazing fast even on the oldest systems and could comfortably run Firefox along with LibreOffice side by side (I need LO as all of my colleagues use Word docs, often with track changes, which Abiword can't handle properly). However, over time, I've found that memory usage has risen, tot he point where Firefox is now automatically killed on the older systems every time I start does one figure out why memory usage is going up? I've checked for inessential services and turned them off with "insserv -r". I've used only lightweight apps, as mentioned before. Are there other general tips on reducing memory usage?

Debian :: Bug Prevents System Update On Squeeze

Jul 8, 2011

I cannot update my system either with Update Manager nor with Synaptic. The system tries to download the updates, and then generates an error message that I have broken packages. So, I click on Fix Broken Packages, etc., and when running get the following error message:

E: /var/cache/apt/archives/libavcodec52_5%3a0.6.3-0.0_i386.deb: short read on buffer copy for backend dpkg-deb during `./usr/lib/i686/cmov/'

This appears to me to be a system bug. I'm running the 32-bit version of Squeeze. Re-install, or ?

Debian Configuration :: Squeeze System Won't Boot Headless

Apr 11, 2011

I've installed 6.0.1a on my xi3 box [URL] and it works great. However when I remove the monitor and keyboard it doesn't boot (I don't know how far it gets, there is no monitor...). I did not install, and do not want, any kind of GUI interface, command line only. This is going in a closet as a solid state rsync backup repo. I have another small system (not this exact one) running Lenny that runs just fine headless - is this some kind of Squeeze regression? Is there any way I can get this running headless (I can't run Lenny on this box because I don't think the Marvell GbE driver is there or is working in Lenny.

Debian Hardware :: Sound Stopped Working After Upgrading Jessie System

May 1, 2014

I recently updated my Debian jessie system (for the first time in a few months). It broke my video driver (fortunately a dpkg-reconfigure fixed that) and my wireless driver (forget how I fixed that...), and my sound. ALSA still thinks I have an output device, I've set volumes all the way up in alsamixer.

In vlc and firefox, I can't hear anything using the default audio out (which I think is pulseaudio), nor can I hear anything if I ask them to use ALSA output directly. I've tried rebooting, killing/manually starting pulseaudio, etc to no avail.

I think it was either the kernel upgrade (went from 3.10 to 3.13) or a configuration option in some sound subsystem that broke. To be clear, sound was working perfectly before the upgrade. My machine is an Ivy Bridge-era Zenbook.

Debian Installation :: Default Audio System For Squeeze And Skype

May 2, 2010

I would like to know which is the default audio system for Squeeze. I'll explain the reason for this question: I had a lenny desktop working like a charm until the hard disk damaged completely. After buying a new desktop computer, I installed Ubuntu 9.10 and I didn't know that the default audio system for Ubuntu was pulseaudio; so I always had problems with skype and my microphone. I remember that with my lenny desktop I never ever had any problem with my sound system and skype.

I've googled for months without finding a consistent fix for this problem in Ubuntu, I've also heard lots and lots of people with the same problem as mine and never solved it; so I decided to get rid of it and install debian Squeeze in my box, but I would like to be sure which is the default audio system for Squeeze, or at least know if anyone have had problems with skype and Squeeze.

Debian Installation :: Install Squeeze On Triple-boot System?

Oct 28, 2010

'rolling' release as redoing install /upgrade every 6 months is getting 'old' My machine is triple boot

Hard drive is 320 GB
Windows 7 - 167 GB
Ubuntu - Maverick - 73 GB
Ubuntu - Natty - testing version - 65 GB

I do not want to screw up my 'grub' as it's been trashed a couple of times recently and had to re-install everything, which went great with install setting up partitions. I am not sure where 'grub' is installed to. I did install Windows 7 first then let installer split hard drive in half to put Ubuntu on then while installing my second Ubuntu, I let installer split the Ubuntu partition in half, hence the 167 GB Windows and the 2 smaller partitions for Ubuntu.I was thinking to maybe let Debian install over my Maverick install. Would that work and not mess up my Grub and cause me to not be able to boot and have to fix the drama?

Hardware :: Installing Debian Squeeze With Logitech EX100 - System Fails To Respond To Any Key Presses

Nov 4, 2010

I'm trying to install Debian Squeeze (net install CD) on a PC with an EX100 wireless keyboard and mouse. The system starts the install without any problem, and the keyboard works up to the first blue menu on the Debian installer then stops - the system fails to respond to any key presses.

The mainboard of the system is an Asus M2N68-AM SE2, keyboard / mouse receiver is plugged into one of the USB ports on the back. I've had a look through the BIOS, there seems to be no option relating to the keyboard. Changing the PnP O/S option seems to make no difference. I've managed to install Ubuntu without problem on this system so I know the PC and keyboard are working fine.
