Software :: Skype Crashes On Debian / Squeeze AMD64 System - Fix It?

May 18, 2010

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:

Inconsistency detected by ld.so: dl-open.c: 643: _dl_open: Assertion `_dl_debug_initialize (0, args.nsid)->r_state == RT_CONSISTENT' failed!

I know this is a long shot since skype isn't open source, but does anyone have a workaround?

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 Multimedia :: Can't Start Skype On AMD64

Aug 27, 2010

I tried to install Skype, using the Debian download from Skype, but it didn't want to play. I downloaded the Ubuntu 64-bit deb and installed it with Gdebi. I started the application from the terminal and accepted the 'User Agreement'. Skype then tried to log me on, and I got the following error and the app closed:

Inconsistency detected by ld.so: dl-open.c: 611: _dl_open: Assertion `_dl_debug_initialize (0, args.nsid)->r_state == RT_CONSISTENT' failed!

Debian :: Compiling Wine In Squeeze On AMD64?

Jul 18, 2010

I am trying to compile wine (1.1.28) in squeeze (AMD64). After I run the configuration scripts, I receive this error:

"configure: libhal/libdbus 32-bit development files not found, no dynamic device support."

I installed the ia32-libs package and libhal.so, libhal.so.,1libhal.so.1.0.0, libdbus-1.so exist in /usr/lib32.

I am compiling wine with the USB support patches, so I believe I will need libhal.

Debian Installation :: Unable To Use Grub2 In Squeeze AMD64

Feb 7, 2011

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.

Debian Multimedia :: Installing Cinelerra On Squeeze (amd64)?

Apr 25, 2011

I think about editing and compressing some avi files and want to install cinelerra-cv. However there are some dependency problems it seems...

aptitude install cinelerra-cv cinelerra-doc cinelerra-cv-data

The following NEW packages will be installed:

cinelerra-cv cinelerra-cv-data cinelerra-doc libavcore0{a} libavutil50{a} libfaac0{a} libmjpegtools-1.9{a} libmp3lame0{a} libmpeg3-1{a} libmpeg3hv-1.5.0-1{a} libquicktime1{a} libquicktimehv-1.6.0-1{a} libva-x11-1{a} libva1{a} libx264-112{a} libxvidcore4{a} mpeg3-utils{a} ttf-bitstream-vera{a}

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:

[code]....

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?

Debian Multimedia :: Gdm Simple-greeter Config Fails, Squeeze Amd64?

Jul 1, 2010

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?

Debian Installation :: 'Squeeze' AMD64 Installer Fails To Detect Hard Disk

Apr 20, 2011

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?

Debian Multimedia :: Segmenation Fault On Skype 2.1. On Squeeze?

Debian Multimedia :: Evolution Crashes In Squeeze After Recent Update?

Jul 24, 2010

After recent update (yesterday) Evolution became almost unusable: if I am going to create a new e-mail or just select a person from Contacts or reply to someone it simply crashes. The update also didn't go very smooth - 15 updates were not applied because of a broken dependency - evolution-exchange, which depended on evolution prior to 2.30.0 but 2.30.1.2-2 was to be installed. Is there a way to make Evolution to work or upgrade solving dependencies?

Debian :: Upgrade System-image-2.6.32-5-amd64 Failed / Get It To Work?

Sep 8, 2011

I use the automatic upgrades - they hardly ever cause a problem... until now.

I just applied this upgrade (linux-image-2.6.32-5-amd64) and a restart was required (normal under when upgrading the image).
After the restart my SIP phone software didn't startup - didn't even get any errors in the log file...
So I checked the "System Monitor" to see if the process was running but not displayed... the System Monitor generates a core dump...

I hope there will be another update to solve this really quickly.... not sure what else is broken. Firefox is still working and so is Skype.

Debian Hardware :: No Sound After Upgrade To System-image-2.6.38-2-amd64 / Get That?

Two days ago I upgraded kde to 4.6 as provided by the qt-kde.debian.net team, in the process pulling in a few updates from sid (in particular, the 2.6.38 kernel), and after could get no sound out of my laptop. Could someone help work out why?

I was using pulseaudio. This seemed no longer able to find my sound-card (hda-intel, details below). The HDMI output was still listed (but I don't have a TV to use it with). Some error messages from syslog code....

Debian Configuration :: Find & Download I386 Packages On An Amd64 System?

Oct 30, 2010

I have a computer with internet access with amd64 architecture running Debian stable (Lenny). I have another computer with NO internet access with i386 architecture running Debian stable (Lenny).I want to download some packages for the i386 computer using the amd64 computer. So far, the only way I can see to do this is to use dpkg-architecture to temporarily change to i386 on the internet computer, run aptitude with the download-only option to retrieve the packages I need with all suitable dependencies, then switch the internet computer back over to amd64.

I can't imagine I'm the only person who ever needed to do this, and yet I've had no luck finding any advice. The method I described seems rather awkward - is there a more elegant solution?

I apologize to the membership, I realize now the absurdity of this subject. Having now studied the online repository search functions closer, I see it appears packages are automatically retrieved with all necessary dependencies. As such, it is not necessary to use apt and its various functions to do the job.

I have tried installing modified/updated libv4l from [URL] and manually extracting the 32-bit maverick libv4l into /usr/lib32, with no luck. Skype keeps showing the picture upside down. Also the V4l Control Panel seems not to affect the picture in Skype. The camera uses the uvcvideo driver.

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.

Sounds and multimedia apps like gxine and mplayer all worked fine on Lenny and other older versions. Now they don't - not gxine, not mplayer not even VLC. Run from the menu they all abort - and if run in an xterm they all crash with the following message -

Ubuntu :: Bluetooth And Skype \ Make A Call Using These Headphones With Skype, Can Speak For Say 10 Seconds And Then The Headset Disconnects Completely From The System?

Aug 12, 2010

I recently bought a IOgear USB bluetooth adapter and a Sony DRBT101/BLK bluetooth headphones to use with my computer.Whenever I try to make a call using these headphones with skype, I can speak for say 10 seconds and then the headset disconnects completely from the system. I then have to reconnect the headset by switching it off and on. I do not have this problem listening to music using A2DP. It works fine with my mobile phone.When I change the profile to Telephony Duplex (HSP/HFP), it shows up as hands free, I thought it should be headset in blueman manager. My friend uses Plantronics headset with is Dell laptop with built in bluetooth and he says his comes up as headset not hands free. Could this be causing the problem?

Debian :: Kde Paralyzed - System Has Debian Squeeze

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.
