Debian :: Installing Kernel Sources - Make Command To Build Package Fails

Jul 22, 2010

I'm trying to build the package zaptel on debian, but I'm encountering two errors:
1- When I try to run the "make menuselect" command, I get an error stating that I need ncurses which is missing. I tried to get it installed but didn't get to do it yet.
2- After that, there's the command "make" I think it's to build the package. Yet again this fails, and the error I get is "you do not appear to have the sources for the 2.6.26-2-686 kernel installed".

Debian Multimedia :: Can't See Windows Open / Make It Possible?

Mar 9, 2010

I've had this for a while now and though I might as well do something about it.
When I have more than one or more windows open none of the show up on the taskbar, I'll show you what I mean.:

Although you can't see it from the picture, I actually have two windows open, both of which should show up on the taskbar (1.).
I can open windows by clicking on the button marked 2.

Is there something simple that I have missed?

Debian :: Make Java Default Application To Open JAR Files

Feb 4, 2016

i cannot seem to find a proper way to make Java my default application to open .jar files. I just made a new Debian 8.3 install on my laptop HP Pavilion G6 and the default application for opening .jar files is the Archive Manager. But when i go to "Open with.." section on right-clicking the .jar file, i get no JRE or JDK option to choose. I just installed the openjdk 7. I can manually run them from the bash, but it would be much more convenient if i just double-clicked it. Here is what i get when i run several commands in the bash :

1) which java ->Code: Select allĀ /usr/lib/jvm/java-7-openjdk-amd64/bin/java
2) java -version -> Code: Select alljava version "1.7.0_95"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea 2.6.4) (7u95-2.6.4-1~deb8u1)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 24.95-b01, mixed mode)
3) echo $PATH: Code: Select all/usr/lib/jvm/java-7-openjdk-amd64/bin:/usr/lib/jvm/java-1.7.0-openjdk-amd64/bin: /usr/local/ sbin:/usr/local/bin:/ usr/ sbin:/usr/bin:/ sbin:/bin
4) javac -version : Code: Select alljavac 1.7.0_95

Debian Multimedia :: How To Make Certain Windows Open Same Size Every Time

Jan 13, 2016

I have been using windowmaker for some time now. I really love this wm, but I've one major problem; how do I make certain windows open the same size each time I open that program? For instance, I have a certain size I prefer for Pcmanfm, Vlc, deadbeef, and geequie, but every time I run them, they open anywhere on the desktop at all sorts of sizes. I especially hate resizing a video window when the video is playing.

I can do this in fluxbox, but I have a different set of problems with that window manager, namely, I can't organize my dockapps the way I want, despite editing the slitlist and some won't work at all. While I love Openbox, I can't get the windows sized right each time, either.

Ubuntu :: 10.04 Can't Open Software Sources Repositories Manager

Nov 2, 2010

I am running Ubuntu 10.04 GNOME. Today I wanted to add a new repository. I tried to open the repositories manager (Software Sources) through Synaptic, but nothing happened. Then I tried to open it directly by directly clicking on the Software Sources program in the system menu, but still it wouldn't open.

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Update Http:// Natty/main/Sources Sources

May 16, 2011

I've got the following problem: I just noticed that there were just very few notifications about updating the system (usually there are damn many of them in a week) So I opened the update manager and clicked on "refresh list". The following result popped up: p,li{white-space:pre-wrap;}E: Error natty/main/Sources Sources 404 Not Found First I thought, it would be just some kind of server problem, but it didn't stop. The next thing was to research the thread and I even found something. However, the solution suggested didn't work at all. (Things, which might have caused this: I installed the default software center |I'm using Kubuntu, but in this case that fact doesn't matter| and used it. To sum up:

- not able to update the system referring to the launchpad main sources for 11.04
- following error: E: Error natty/main/Sources Sources 404 Not Found It would be great if this was a common issue and I've been simply too stupid to find a proper solution. So you could just post the link.

Ubuntu Installation :: Change The Sources That Aren't In Sources.list?

Apr 21, 2010

I am running Jolicloud on my netbook (which I believe is an Ubuntu derivative) and I am tried to enter the sources in so I can install apps from the website through APT but

1) When I entered the sources into sources.list and then the key into Terminal and then went to the site and tried to install an app it didn't work.

2) I deleted the line of code in the sources.list file and when I opened terminal and entered "sudo apt-get update" it showed the list of sources, but on the list were sources.

My question is how do I delete sources that aren't in /etc/apt/sources.list ?

Debian :: No 2.6.32-3 Sources ?

May 10, 2010

The topic says it all. I am installing Debian Squeeze on an old Socket 370 Celeron, 433MHz with 128MB PC-100 and a 4.3GB HDD, to function as a router, proxy, content filter, firewall, etc etc. Due to this, I looked at my loaded modules list in the stock Squeeze kernel 2.6.32-3-686. I wrote them all down, downloaded the sources, and cut out everything except those modules and their dependencies. No problems here, but I just noticed that I only see 2.6.32 sources in aptitude, not 2.6.32-3.

Debian :: Sources.list - To Determine US Or UK?

Mar 7, 2011

I have created a custom debian netinst USB stick. It has the default UK repositories in the sources list, but people in the US also need to use the stick from time-to-time.

Would it be a bad idea to mix US and UK repositories in the sources.list? Would Debian be clever enough to pick up the best repo depending on where the user is using the OS from? Or would I need to be a bit clever and create some sort of script to deal with this. (I am avoiding non-free/experimental software).

Debian :: Iceweasel 4: Can It Be Built From Mozilla Sources

I'm using a PowerPC system and the available builds are for x86(_64). Mozilla.debian does not have a source package readily available for me to download. I'm also assuming- although I am probably in error- that I can use the default package configuration to set it up.

Debian :: How Do Security Update Sources Work?

Mar 22, 2011

Just leads to a list of packages. Are these taken down and installed if needed? I take it these are installed from main component right?Is this just to let people know there's a new version in main? If you didn't have "deb distrib/updates main", wouldn't the updates be pulled from "deb http://whatever/debian distrib main" anyway when you did an apt-get update (by logical reasoning that they'd be new?)

Or is it that you can't detect new versions directly from main and you need the updates package to point out which ones have updated versions?

Debian :: Unable To Edit The Sources.list?

Sep 7, 2011

I started using Ubuntu about 2 months ago, and having been studying every day since. About 2 days ago, I downloaded a copy of i386 Squeeze, and installed it onto an old extra machine (Dell 2350 tower, 768 MB RAM, 30 GB HD, Ethernet broadband) as a learning project.

During the install, I chose to not specify an online mirror. (I was trying to keep things as simple as possible, and save time while I was at it.) I didn't realize that by not specifying a mirror, the new system wouldn't have any links for finding new software. (In Ubuntu, it was automated and required no input &/or editing from me.) Reading posts at this forum, I learned that I need to edit the sources.list file. This was my first attempt at editing a Linux system script file, and I wasn't able to manage doing that. I chose to open it using gedit, and found I couldn't change its contents. I figured out then, that it was read-only.

Debian Multimedia :: Lenny Compatible VLC 1.0.5 - 32 - 64 Bit And Sources

Mar 2, 2010

I had to build it with nls (locales) and the mozilla-plugin disabled, due to the Lenny libc6 causing problems.

Link (about 40 Mb): [url]

Big and Free link: (may disappear): [url]

64-bit debs only (about 9 MB): [url]

I have had reports of the aspect ratio being weird for ATI cards, as well as no full screen, but it works fine in the Virtual Box Lenny, as well as on my Intel graphics.

You will also need the lenny-backports repo, to get some missing or updated libraries. see

You would need to install the vlc-data deb first, then you can install the rest of the debs: (except for the -dbg version, unless you need it) dpkg -i *386.deb

If you have missing dependencies, you get an error=1, so get the missing dependencies with aptitude -f install or apt-get -f install. You may have to manually install the lenny-backports libraries if you have trouble. You actually don't need the -dev, dbg, and most of the other libraries, so you may want to look at what the vlc metapackage needs and install those.
