Debian :: Any Way To Install Ecryptfs-utils In Stretch?
Jan 10, 2016
After years with debian stable I'm testing debian...testing (stretch) in a separate partition. I'm just using the stretch repositories and nothing else, so that I won't mess up the system by pulling packages from different branches.
Unfortunately ecryptfs-utils is not (yet) available on stretch. Is there any safe way to use this package on my debian stretch, preferably the stable package from jessie?
How long it will take for this package to reach stretch from unstable?
I have a fresh install of Kubuntu 11.04 and I already have the lastest ecryptfs-utils installed. I have the ".Private" folder but not the "Private" folder.
When I try to set it up I get this error:
$ ecryptfs-setup-private ERROR: wrapped-passphrase file already exists, use --force to overwrite.
How do I get my "Private" folder to appear? I don't think I should just be throwing my stuff into ".Private" and I don't want to have to see all the hidden folders all the time either. Should I use the --force argument, and what would that do?
I'm trying to install KDE, but I can't. I've tried using tasksel, but it gave me an error, so I tried to install task-kde-desktop myself. When I did that, I ran into some dependency issues:
Code: Select allSome packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable distribution that some required packages have not yet been created or been moved out of Incoming.
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
task-kde-desktop : Depends: kde-standard but it is not going to be installed Depends: kdm but it is not going to be installed Recommends: kdeaccessibility but it is not going to be installed Recommends: k3b but it is not going to be installed
I have a laptop with 2 HDDs, 1x SSD (/dev/sda, Windows 10 Pro x64) and 1x HDD (/dev/sdb, 3 primary partitions: boot, root, swap; 1 logical partition: home).I used the Debian Stretch Alpha D1 Netinstall ISO x64 by transfering it to a USB stick with DiskImage Writer.The installation went perfectly fine. I chose GRUB to be installed in the MBR of /dev/sdb, as I want all my Linux Stuff on that second disk. The plan is to boot the second disk manually through the BIOS whenever I want to work with Debian. My Windows disk is kept unaware of anything "linuxy".
After the install was complete and I booted my /dev/sdb through the BIOS, a blinking cursor on a black screen was the result. And I don't mean a GRUB Rescue prompt.IMHO, Grub appears to not have been installed, although I chose it to be installed in the MBR of /dev/sdb at the end of the installation.
I've been reading a little, searching for a bug in the installer, but I found only a vague mentioning of such an issue: Grub missing if Debian installed on a multi-hdd system through USB stick. The solution was to get Super Grub2 Disk, and use it to boot my Debian. It worked as expected and the system booted.
I just installed ecryptfs (debian Lenny). However, when I try to run it (as normal user), I get the following $ ecryptfs-setup-private Enter your login passphrase: And it wont accept any password (naturally since this is the first time I'm running it).
I recently upgraded my Debian box from Jessie to Stretch. After this, apt informed me that I should issue "apt-get autoremove," however the package list to be effected was large and contained some important packages (xorg being just one example). Most of the packages are qt4 related, and I at first assumed qt5 equivalents had replaced them, but seeing network-manager and xorg in the list made me pause.
I've recently installed Debian Stretch and Gnome. After setting up everything I ran into an issue with Rhythmbox, which apparently only occurs if NFS mounts are present in /etc/fstab, independent on the question of whether they are actually mounted or not. I'll attach the results from running it from console with 'rhythmbox -d': [URL] .....
I guess, the last lines are the "problematic ones" but I can't make sense out of them. After the last line, a window opens telling me that rhythmbox isn't responding, whether I want to kill it.
And the /etc/fstab entrys (in case any of those options is an issue):
Have 'Phatch' installed and running on 'Stretch'? I had no problems on 'Jessie' but on a new install of Stretch I just get the 'Phatch' icon in the middle of the screen. Tried from Command line and this is the output:
/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/wx-3.0-gtk2/wx/_core.py:8196: GtkWarning: gtk_disable_setlocale() must be called before gtk_init() return _core_.PyApp__BootstrapApp(*args, **kwargs) Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/wx-3.0-gtk2/wx/_core.py", line 16765, in <lambda> lambda event: event.callable(*event.args, **event.kw) )
The 'Phatch' forums have not had any recent posts and the 'Phatch' website [URL] .... has 'Server not found'.
When i'm tried google there is lots of bootlogd related document there. [URL] .... Yes there is documentation. But I'm only need "enable boot logging","reading boot log". Bootlogd not worked on jessie/stretch.
I have a strange problem with my MINI Ubuntu. I am able to shutdown -h now and restart with power button, as long as I don't install pm-utils. If I install pm-utils, the computer turns of after shutdown -h now, but will not wake up after I press the power button. Light goes on, drives are running, but no BEEP.
I have installed Package: gnumeric (1.12.18-2) in my Jessie/Mate system. It is very jittery on scrolling, and I was wondering if I should upgrade to the version (1.12.26-1) in stretch(testing), as there seem to have been a large number of bugfixes.
I have tried the following simulation command, but it gives the error message shown:
Code: Select all~# apt-get --simulate -t stretch install gnumeric Reading package lists... Done E: The value 'stretch' is invalid for APT::Default-Release as such a release is not available in the sources
The documentation suggests that I may need to create an apt preferences file. I do not have any of the following files mentioned by the apt-get man page:
What I would like to do is upgrade just the specific package jessie/gnumeric(1.12.18-2) to stretch/gnumeric(1.12.26-1). I do not want any other packages to be inadvertently upgraded to stretch. I have seen warnings that one can easily end up with a badly mixed system and I wish to avoid that! I also do not want to disturb the standard apt-get update, which I am running daily via anacron at present.
I have been encounter 2 bugs on 2 sides of the coin. Seems it doesn't fix since Wheezy till now.
1. When I don't install any nonfree firmware I'm stuck at 1024x768 resoultions unable to turn to 1366x768 2. But when I install nonfree firmware my 1366x768 was solved but I encounter other new bugs
>> On Jessie: XFCE4.10 doesn't save any wallpaper everytime when reboot the pc & always reset to default. But when remove nonfree firmware the bg save normally but I've to stuck at 1024x768 resulotion. This also happen on Wheezy as well. >> On Stretch: XFCE4.12 workspace become too long ugly. But when remove nonfree firmware the workspace become normal but I've to stuck at 1024x768 resulotion once again.
So any way with nonfree installed without this XFCE bugs or without nonfree driver install but make resolution 1366x768 work for not to stuck in 1024x768 resolutions. Overall I'm quite satisfy Stretch testing than Jessie Stable.
I upgraded the distro (Strecht - Testing) and the result was almost the same mentioned by mittgreen, when I boot the system it fails to load the X, ending in the "oh no something has gone wrong" screen.Now, the only possible way to use the GUI is to start it manually by startx command. Reading the Xorg.log I saw a "No screens found" error.
Installed kdeconnect from Stretch repo, and KDE Connect from F-Droid on my phone, but I don't know how to get this working. No KDE Connect options anywhere in System Settings (I also search there for "connect" and don't find anything related to KDE Connect). There's no GUI anywhere, no Plasma 5 widgets, nothing. Only "kdeconnect-cli", which when I enter "kdeconnect-cli -l" (list devices) I get
Code: Select allkdeconnect-cli(26749)/kdeconnect DevicesModel::refreshDeviceList: dbus interface not valid 0 devices found
On the phone side, "No devices" found when it searches, or when I press refresh. Why is there no System Settings option even after installing the kdeconnect package?
I recently upgraded my debian system from jessie to stretch. Before then, I was mostly using hibernation instead of shutting off the laptop, to allow myself to get back faster to work the next day. Since my upgrade, though, it is impossible for me to resume from hibernation: after the normal boot sequence and the passphrase to decrypt my lvm partition, when it has loaded the information from RAM the screen just stays with a blinking "_" (underscore) in the top left corner.
I have hibernate and uswsusp packages installed. I also installed tuxonice-userui package to do some tests with the hibernate-ram and hibernate-disk commands. While using hibernate-disk (hibernate-ram didn't work, because "s2ram: unknown machine"), my system hibernates correctly, and I saw that during resume it was correctly loading everything from swap and then going back to the "underscore screen", confirming that the resume problem was happening after loading data from swap.
I tried booting using the recovery kernel in grub. For a time it worked, but today I didn't get the chance to make it work. The only solution was for me to boot my kernel by adding the "noresume" option to it, thus forcing it to restart.
I have Asus Z87-PRO motherboard with i5-4670k and I'm trying to install Debian Testing with 64-bit architecture. My problem is mouse and keyboard (I guess USB in general) stop working after installer get loaded (the last thing I do is choose between text and graphical install). I found a few topics on different forums indicating that I should enable IOMMU (Intel VT-d) option in my bios.
The problem is that Intel k-series processors didn't use to have IOMMU support, so there's nothing I can do about it. I tried changing different bios options like disabling UEFI, enabling xHCI and EHCI with no luck. Passing "iommu=off" or "iommu=soft" to the boot command also doesn't work. However, I have LMDE 2 64-bit live cd (based on Debian Jessie) and it works fine, so I guess my problem may be related to some changes in 4.2 kernel.
I've just installed debian testing on my computer (netinst AKA basic shell version). Now, how do I do a minimal gnome install? Minimal means, I don't need libreoffice or any extra bloat. However, I do want nautilus, gnome-settings-daemon and networkmanager (and of course, firefox!).
Also, is audio included or not in gnome-shell?
If I just install the gnome-shell package (with --no-install-recommends package), will it pull in gdm, Xorg, etc. or do I have to install them separately? Also, need to confirm whether my sources.list is properly set or not:
Code: Select alldeb http://ftp.security.debian.org/debian/ stretch main non-free contrib deb http://security.debian.org/debian-security stretch/updates main
After mapping iscsi storage from my netapp and scanning for new devices I run multipath -v2 to create the multipath device handle under /dev/mapping/. This normally takes about 2 seconds or less on every other linux distribution I use. On Stretch it takes a little over 3 minutes. I have tried several different versions of multipath.conf but the result is always the same.
My most recent multipath.conf file is available here : [URL] ....
and the output of multipath -v4 is available here : [URL] ....
I want to install the Empathy on my CentOS. And I configured, then I got a resposes: checking gnome-doc-utils >= 0.17.3... no configure: error: gnome-doc-utils >= 0.17.3 not found
But when I run "yum install gnome-doc-utils" The system respond: [root@localhost ~]# yum install gnome-doc-utils Loaded plugins: fastestmirror Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile Setting up Install Process Package gnome-doc-utils-0.8.0-2.fc6.noarch already installed and latest version Nothing to do
Installing stretch stops at detecting network devices. This is an attempt to install stretch over the top of Windows 10 on a Toshiba Radius 15 with 2 each USB2 ports and 2 each USB3 ports, and no RJ-45. Its wireless is based upon the Intel 7265. Just before the presentation of the wireless list, the system reports the need to install non-free:
and asks for media. Whether I respond yes or no, the driver selection screen comes up. [I have not been able to find those four specific files on the Internet.The network card screen comes up, I select the Intel recommended firmware iwlsifi, but the page just recreates itself and waits for a new selection. If I select either 'none' or 'not listed', the installation fails saying there is no network card.I have obtained from Intel their suggestion as of Aug 2015: iwlwifi-7265-ucode-220.127.116.11.tgz.I placed this on a USB stick in a subdirectory labeled 'firmware'. This was built from Windows 7 on a FAT32 file system.
There is also a Dynadock docking station that connects to the Toshiba via a USB3 cable. Besides video, USB,and audio, this has an Ethernet port. I have tried this connected to the laptop but it also requires a driver. I have placed that driver on the firmware directory of the USB also.
Are the four files listed above somehow inside the iwlwifi driver tgz?Is there a way to get the docking station drive to load so I can use its Ethernet port?
I have used Rufus to build the stretch USB from Windows. I do have a a Linux box I built with the same USB. I would use it but so far, I only have a command line on it and I have not figured out how to access debian.org to download the installation files nor how to put that on the stick.
I have installed debian stretch on this machine, but can't get wired ethernet running. Using Slitaz live disc, the wired connection works. Guess I am missing a package or two.
Slitaz system (2.6.37) info reports:
