Networking :: F5 Firepass Client With Amd64 And Squeeze Doesn't Work
Apr 4, 2011
My university is checking LAN access through F5 Firepass server. Using amd 64 proc with squeeze and iceweasel 3.5.16 browser with F5 Network access plugin and F5 sam inspection host plugin, I cannot access university servers through the F5 firepass server.
I have installed the Squeeze testing version. i have setup networking for static in the /etc/network/interfaces file. tried to find resolv.conf in the /etc/ since could not find i created this file post trying to start the eth1 i am able to ping my ip, but if try to ping the gateway i get an error saying the ping is not sucessfull. I have 2 network cards, eth0 and eth1. as eth0 does not work i have configured eth1. The dump of the interfaces file is below
The same setup works fine in Ubuntu 10.10 setup that i have.
This will be a little long (having read Phil's 'how to ask questions' FAQ). I'm trying to get OpenVPN working between my CentOS server and some Windoze laptops running XP. There seems to be plenty of sample config files available, but to date, none of them have worked for me. Pulling out my trusty Wireshark, I've found some clues,
BACKGROUND: My local subnet (NAT'ed by my gateway router) is 192.168.52.x. My router has been configured with a conduit (port-forward) for port 1194 (the standard OpenVPN port), which points towards my CentOS server.The CentOS server is .52.112, and the supplicant is .52.110. I have tried the lient both inside and outside my local subnet, with no difference in events or outcomes.
After using testing (now Wheezy) for almost a year and breaking my machine (latest nvidia broken packages), I went back to vanilla Squeeze (after updates, now at 6.02).Nothing from outside the stable repos; not even the nvidia driver (kept it at default and nouveau)Repo "deb http://www.debian-multimedia.org stable main non-free" enabled.It seems flash is not working with iceweasel; I either have a message which says "Cannot play media: you do not have the correct version of the flash player. Download the correct version," with a link to Adobe's site, of media appears in broken pieces.In order to keep my system "clean," I haven't downloaded anything from Adobe, and a search on this forum suggested installing flashplugin-nonfree or flashplayer-mozilla. Did both (can't have them at the same time), restarted, no joy.
Using coolbits allows for me to try to change it but it refuses to accept it, and even when i run it as root it still just acts like nothing has changed. It's not my laptop maker since i can overclock my gpu using rivatuner on windows so it's clearly not them trying to restrict me. I was attempting to restore teh clocks back to what the factory settings were from nvidia and not the underclocked settings that the oem put on it for the 3d settings and then reducing the 2d by ~10% to help it run cooler except when gaming.Has anyone been able to successfully use coolbits in squeeze? Or is there another nvidia overclockign tool out there besides nvclock since my gpu is apparently too new to work with it and i'm not going to risk it.
My net-book is working properly with Debian squeeze 2-6-32-5-686, only the wlan does not work. After typing lsusb I have got the message: lsusb : Bus 002 Device 002 : ID 160a:3184 VIA Technologies, Inc. VIA VNT-6656 [WiFi 802.11b/g USB Dongle]
So I obtained the driver package : VT6656_Linux_src_v1.19_12_x86. I followed the instructions ( make install... ) - but the result is only a lot of error messages. Mayby I am using the wrong driver package for the squeeze kernel - I don't know.
I have Debian Squeeze x64 on ThinkPad T61p with standard 2.6.32-5-amd64 kernel. thinkpad_acpi loaded as module, suspend to RAM works fine from menu in KDE as well as by closing the lid, however machine doesn't appear to react on pressing Fn+F4 which should put it to sleep as well. I've read through thinkpad_acpi documentation and asked Google but so far can't find the solution. Can anyone, point me in correct direction?
I'm running VirtualBox 3.2.6 on a Win7 computer. In VB I have several clients:
3 OpenSuse, 11.2 & 11.3, 2 w Gnome one text-only. One Smoothwall Two Debian Lenny, one w Kde one w Lxde Only in one Debian, the one w Kde, the numerical keypad doesn't work! I've tried booting without X but no difference.
By upgrading to latest kernel(2.6.31-22) the card was recognized but it still doesn't quite work. I'm not that good at this but I'll paste some stuff that I think is related to solving a problem such as this.
I have installed squeeze and kernel 2.6.32-3 Also I use the USB webcam Asus. A week ago I installed lenny, my webcam didn't work, then I made upgrade to squeeze and my webcam worked! I don't know why Yesterday I have installed the system again, the base system as lenny (net-install) and then squeeze. But webcam doesn't work
When either of the proprietary Nvidia drivers are enabled, viewing the desktop using a remote client (Windows TightVNC) does not work. The initial remote screen display is ok, but no updates to the remote display occur. Reverting back to the non-proprietary driver solves the problem. I have also tried using a 10.04 Live CD and used Remote Desktop Viewer on the client machine, and it behaves the same way.
The way I usually boot Linux distros, and this has worked for every distro I have tried up to Kubuntu 10.10, was to install Grub2 on an extended partition, run "dd if=/dev/sda5 of=linux.bin bs=512 count=1", and then adding that bin file to my Windows boot.ini. What usually happens after is that I get the Grub2 menu after selecting it from the Windows Bootloader.
The problem is, with the latest Squeeze AMD64, all I get when I do this is a static cursor and the computer is frozen and I have to hit the reset button.I mounted the Linux partition with Ext2IFS (mkfs.ext3 -I128 /dev/sda5 to get 128KB inodes), and I can see that the Squeeze installer did indeed install Grub2, because I can see the files in their respective directories.
I want to install Adobe's Flash, as opposed to one of the free options (they don't handle some content well). I have Googled around to try to find out how Flash is installed, but there doesn't seem to be one recognized way.
I found the following:
Is anyone using Adobe's Flash on amd64 and is happy with the install?
The following packages will be upgraded: libavcodec52 libpostproc51 libswscale0 3 packages upgraded, 18 newly installed, 0 to remove and 5 not upgraded. Need to get 16.5 MB of archives. After unpacking 31.5 MB will be used. The following packages have unmet dependencies: libavformat52: Depends: libavcodec52 (< 4:0.5.2-99) but 5:0.6.1+svn20101128-0.2 is to be installed. or libavcodec-extra-52 (< 4:0.5.2-99) which is a virtual package. The following actions will resolve these dependencies:
Normally I say yes and hope for good, but this time... I do not use adobe flash player, but I would still like to watch ..... videos. Would be hard without gnash, right? I use iron portable and iceweasel. Also I use totem a lot, but aptitude seems not being able to resolve this inconsistency automatically. My question is: what would happen, if I just say "y"? gnash is completly away? And is there any way to install newer version of gnash or do whatever to have everything working?
I wanted to know which is the best firewall application for my debian squeeze amd64 home desktop. I prefer a simple interface yet powerful enough. After googling I found two options - gufw & firestarter. I am not sure which one to choose between these two.
Using the howto at http://wiki.debian.org/skype I installed Skype 2.1 beta 2. It launches OK using either skype or linux32 skype and brings up the login screen. It already has my username but when I enter my password skype crashes before logging me in. I get the error:
I want to set the login to the old default of having to enter a username,password. I've tried to use the configuration editor to achieve this and have ticked the "disable-user-list" option under /apps/gdm/simple-greeter but it makes no difference, the greeter still starts with a user list. It appears that the default valuef TRUE for this function is overriding my choice, but I'm notre why. My next step appears to be to edit /etc/gdm3/greeter.gconf-defaults to change the default value. I haven't actually tried that yet so not sure if it would work but, even if it does, it doesn't seem a very elegant way of setting this up. Is there some simple way of changing the behaviour back to asking for username first?
I seem to remember the whole login process as being more configurable than it is now, with options to choose backgrounds, allow root accest finystem->administration->login_screen only gives a choice between selecting a user or automatic login of a particular user, with no further options available.On a general note, would the old method not be a more secure default than presenting an unauthorised user with a list of login id's to be tried?
Having trouble installing 'Squeeze' 6.0.1a-amd64-netinst on a new AMD64 system.The installer boots and runs fine until it gets to hard disk detection. Then it hangs for about 20 minutes showing a blue screen, during which time the HDD-activity light flickers every 5 seconds. Eventually it says it can't detect a hard disk, and displays a (longish) list of possible drivers; no idea which, if any, would suit.Anyone else installed (successfully or otherwise) on this combo?
I have this annoying problem since day one.I am testing out Red Hat RHEL5, everything is fine except DNS look up.If I ping www.google.com, it doesn't work, ping ip address it all works;if I bring up browser, put www.google.com it doesn't work, can't find the name, however, simply put ip address there it works.My DNS seeting seems ok, and the DNS works from Windows box.
I'm setting up an LTSP server using Ubuntu 10.4 64bit, and PXE connecting with thin clients using Atheros cards. The ltsp environment is 32bit.
Unfortunately I get an error message with "No interfaces found! Aborting..." and a kernel panic early during PXE boot.
After an enormous amount of investigation, I've narrowed it down to (probably) being the fact that the ltsp chroot environment doesn't have the correct driver for my network card (I believe it's atl1c). The correct driver IS available in Ubuntu, though, as I can successfully boot the thin client from both 64bit and 32bit live CDs and bring up the network interface.
how can I install the correct driver in the PXE environment?
I've been trying to install Ubuntu 10.10 on my custom built AMD Athlon FX-53 system to use as a web server. I downloaded the AMD64 desktop version and whenever I boot to the CD it'll go through the loading screen, bring up the install background and then the mouse cursor will appear. After that the mouse cursor keeps switching between the loading one and the regular one and it never fully loads the installer.
The system specs are:
AMD Athlon FX-53 @ 2.4 GHz (Stock) 1 Gb OCZ PC-3200 ram (2x512) PNY Verto FX5200 Western Digital 40 Gb IDE hard drive based off an Asus SK8V motherboard (Skate 5 to me...)
I was able to install the 32-bit version and I've tried 2 burns, one on a CD-RW and one on a CD-R and the checksum is the correct one based on whats posted on the site.
This morning I switched my machine and the Update Manager prompted me to upgrade.So, as usual I did it. After upgrade it asked me to restart. Since then id didn't boot anymore. Now I have blank screen with a blinking cursor ... immediately after the BIOS screen, so it looks that no OS is loaded.

One of my clients brought a laptop to me with a 64 bit processor and wanted to hook up his zoom 3095 usb dial-up (56k) modem to a his laptop using ubuntu 9.10 AMD 64 bit version. We quickly found out that zoom has only made 32 bit drivers for linux. So...I need to find a usb modem that has drivers that will work with a 64 bit version of ubuntu 9.10.
