Debian :: When Gnome 2.32 Might Be Ready For Wheezy

Jun 1, 2011

when gnome 2.32 might be ready for Wheezywhen gnome 2.32 might be ready for Wheezy. I'm in hopes that Wheezy will NOT have gnome3, and I'm somewhat confident of that, but I play in both Debian and Ubuntu and I'm thinking about trying to get the Ubuntu devs to port Debian's gnome version 2.32 into their Oneiric Ocelot via package 'gnome-desktop-environment'. (It's currently at 2.30).

Debian :: Wheezy 7.8 With Gnome 3.4.2 - How To Use File Tags

May 27, 2015

I'm using debian wheezy 7.8 with gnome 3.4.2.

In a random folder, if i right click on a random file for example a pdf file, i can see in the shortcut menu that appears the choice "tags". It is clear how i can create a new tag or associate an existing tag to a specific file.

My question is, how can i search for files that have a specific tag? For example if i have two files that i already gave them the tag "test", can i use some program and find that two files by using the tag "test"?

Debian Configuration :: Manage GNOME Keyrings In Wheezy?

Jun 8, 2011

Last week I upgraded from Squeeze to Wheezy. Everything seems to be in order, except now launching empathy will get my 4 separate GNOME keyring prompts in a row. I guess my keyring got copied for some reason, but Ican't figure out what package to install to deal with my keyrings, as gnome-keyring-manager is only in sid...

Debian :: Upgraded From Wheezy To Jessie / Now Only GNOME Classic Works

Apr 27, 2015

I did an in-place upgrade to Jessie today and I can only get the GNOME Classic desktop, which I have to select when I log in. I had started to get used to the default desktop in Wheezy, so I'd like it back if possible. When I select gnome system default, I get my desktop, but no menus or anything I can click on at all. All I can do is ctrl-alt-delete and reboot or shutdown. I run it on a Lenovo Ideapad U410.

Debian :: Hda: Drive Not Ready For Command Using HAL On Lenny

Feb 19, 2010

Recently we started getting these errors in syslog:

Code:
[31944.813993] hda: status timeout: status=0xd0 { Busy }
[31944.813993] ide: failed opcode was: unknown
[31944.813993] hda: drive not ready for command
[31949.822516] hda: status timeout: status=0xd0 { Busy }

[Code]....

Also the machine was under very high load and almost impossible to connect to.

I've searched, and found mostly answers involving broken hard disks or other hardware issues, but this is unlikely to be the case here: it started happening on several machines at the same time. They are HP DL580G5, and hda is the DVD player. It's not being used. The only thing we've recently changed is that we installed HAL (as a dependency of pcscd), and sure enough, killing HAL freed up the cpu and stopped the stream of errors. Sadly, pcscd requires HAL..

Has anyone seen this? Are there known problems with HAL in Lenny on HP hardware? I know I could do hal-disable-polling /dev/hda but I don't want to simply ignore a potential problem.

EDIT: versions used are HAL 0.5.11-8, pcscd 1.4.102-1 and kernel 2.6.26.2-amd64

General :: New Install Of Debian Of PPC G4 Not Booting With Repeated Message - Drive Not Ready

Mar 17, 2010

I just installed Debian onto a PowerPC G4 Tower with two hard drives. I left OS X on one of the drives and reformatted and installed Debian on the other, using the installer from the 60Mb ISO from the Debian website.

The installation had no issues and it starts yaboot and Debian no problem.

After about 2 minutes of the booting up process, it starts to output this, every five seconds:

While this happens, other things still continue load and it outputs occasional messages and even gets to "Debian Login:" where if you type really quickly and hit enter, it takes it and prompts for "Password:" right after the next round of the above messages.

I have not been able to completely log in yet.

I can start up into the shell as root with "Linux single" with no problems.

I think this might have something to do with the second Mac OS Formatted Hard drive. I have considered unplugging that drive and testing it that way, but I am looking for a solution to turn off whatever script is running that every five seconds and failing, regardless of what it is trying to do.

Debian :: Squeeze Vs Wheezy ?

Nov 29, 2010

But when Squeeze goes from 'testing' to 'stable' in December... does Wheezy get promoted from 'sid/unstable' to 'testing' at the same time?.

I started my life in Linux with and currently use Ubuntu, and it runs decent(barely). However, I just upgraded to Ubuntu 10.10, and because of strange little issues and increasing bloatware, I have been forced to strongly consider the "mother OS": Debian.

The reason for my original question is that I want to run whatever the current "testing version" is. And if Wheezy gets promoted at the same time Squeeze does, then I will just wait the 4 weeks instead of slogging through another install(I prefer fresh installations vs upgrading within). I know the test versions of Debian are a bit more active than stable, but I have used Ubuntu for over 2 years, so I have some experience dealing with Terminal commands, package management, gnome, etc...I am also currently VirtualBoxing a copy of Squeeze.

Debian :: How To Upgrade To Wheezy

May 20, 2011

I got "stuck" with stable up to now and want to upgrade to Wheezy. But, although I've done this before, I'm having a dependency problem I wanted to ask about before breaking my system somehow. This is the /etc/apt/sources.list, ready for Wheezy:

[URL]

So, I regularly use aptitude as my package manager. After updating the database with aptitude update, trying aptitude full-upgrade gives me a huge of conflicts.

[code]....

But, if I use apt-get dist-upgrade, I get no conflicts. if I dist-upgrade with apt-get, will that affect my daily usage of aptitude (which I prefer)? I know APT is a single database and apt-get and aptitude are just different interfaces, but I guess differences might rise when marking packages as automatically or manually installed.

Debian :: Can't Install JDK 8 In Wheezy

Apr 19, 2015

I dont want openjdk packages on my system, in Kubuntu I had a few troubles with them trying to make SqlDeveloper to work around. So this is what I see after a java -version:

Code: Select alledgardo@debian:~$ java -version
java version "1.8.0_45"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_45-b14)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.45-b02, mixed mode)
edgardo@debian:~$

I've been uninstalling openjdk from synaptic and with other few commands on the terminal so far and I think I probably broke it. I have no /usr/lib/jvm folder only /usr/lib/java/jdk1.8.0_45.But everytime I wish to start up Eclipse it shows the logo for a few seconds and that's it.... never gets opened. And in /usr/bin$ I only have this symbolic link....

Code: Select alllrwxrwxrwx 1 root   root          22 abr 19 18:57 java -> /etc/alternatives/java

I've tried different tutorials I found surfing the web but none of 'em seem to work.

Debian :: Spring On Wheezy But Not Jessie

May 19, 2015

I've had a weird issue recently with Java/Spring. Basically, it would work on all machines but my trusty Debian box. Macs for devs, Ubuntu for production and some devs have it too. This annoyed me, because of course Debian is the greatest and it must work there too! Also, Java is based on the whole write once run anywhere concept, I have never really had a problem with code behaving differently on different Java installs of the same version, even on completely different OSs it seems to behave itself very well. URL....

I moved up to Jessie and the problem goes away. I can only conclude that some library that is called by Java got upgraded, somehow influences the order in which Spring resolves its dependencies. Probably the fact that other devs build on Ubuntu and have got it working there, and the upgrade to Jessie brings my libs more in line with what Ubuntu will be running has done the trick.

Debian Installation :: Wheezy To SSD Drive?

Jan 6, 2013

Just re-installed Wheezy to ssd-drive and noticed that everything works much faster than before. For the older install I made some changes to /etc/fstab (I think) which I found from the web. I don't remember exactly what changes.

Question is: what's the situatation with Wheezys beta4-release and ssd-drive? Do I have to edit something at the moment, or does the installer notice ssd-drive and make everything needed?

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 Configuration :: Kernel 2.6.38 In Wheezy?

Apr 11, 2011

This is Wheezy x86_64. I tried two different ways to install kernel 2.6.38 on my machine and both have failed. First thing I did was to follow this guide [URL]... el-26.html) and try to compile the latest stable from kernel.org. I don't know why, but it turns into kernel panic when I try to run it. Second thing I did was to install the liquorix 2.6.38, and that also fails, seeming to boot but hanging a second short from the login. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. Is there a special way to install kernels in Debian? This is the first time I tried compiling a kernel, so it's quite likely that the problem is sitting 6 inches from the computer screen. Also, how would I remove those kernels since they're obviously not working? I know I could remove them from the grub menu but I'm not sure how to completely delete them.

Debian Hardware :: Adding 4 TB HD To Wheezy

Sep 6, 2014

I will preface this post by stating I am a beginner in Linux in general. I am trying to add a 4TB hard drive to my LVM set up. I started by partitioning the disk using fdisk. After that I went to add the disk as a physical volume. When I ran pvdisplay I noticed that the disk was only showing as 2 TB.

After some research it appears that anything over 2 TB isn't supported by fdisk. Instead I need to use "parted" or "gdisk" . So I used the following command "sudo gdisk /dev/sda" and recieved this,

Partition table scan:
MBR: MBR only
BSD: not present
APM: not present
GPT: not present

Found invalid GPT and valid MBR; converting MBR to GPT format. THIS OPERATION IS POTENTIALLY DESTRUCTIVE! Exit by typing 'q' if you don't want to convert your MBR partitions to GPT format!

I was about to pull the trigger and enter "w" when I saw the message "THIS WILL OVERWRITE EXISTING PARTITIONS" which scared me away.

So does this message only refer to the previous partition I had created on /dev/sda? Or is it all partitions?

Debian :: No Internet After Upgrade From Wheezy To Jessie

May 27, 2015

I upgraded my Wheezy 7.8 to make sure all packages were installed Before taking the next step to upgrade to Jessie.I upgraded to Jessie and it seemed to run OK....but after reboot I had no network Connection..I checked ifconfig and the wrong network card mac address is being assigned to the wrong card....?I have a clonezilla server on my server, so this was my network interfaces before and after upgrade

Code: Select all# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
# and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).
# The loopback network interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

[code]...

I even checked nano /etc/resolv.conf and sure enough my gateway was the same for my Internet eth0.When I ran ifconfig I could see that the eth0 mac address was set as eth1..I tried to reset my drbl for clonezilla but that only sees the vmware Connection and not my actural cards.. have taken alook at /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules and the assignment is right but not ifconfig?

Debian :: Samba - 7.0 Wheezy And Windows 7 Cannot Login

Debian :: Install Ubuntu's Kernel In Wheezy ?

Debian :: Wheezy Update Manager Stalling

Jun 14, 2011

Wheezy gets daily small updates.General things go smoothly - get the notification and install, job done.By occasionally it stalls - it says do partial or full updates and just sits there. For last week this persistent problem.Only way around is boot up and do manual update before notification kicks.As I type the update manager is sitting there doing nothing. Another reboot needed.
