Debian Configuration :: Apt Package Config - Error Mirror Zone
Mar 27, 2011
I installed debian 6 (stable) on laptop with dual boot Windows 7 and Debian. when i was installing debian ,every things were ok and installed correctly (such as DHCP configuration) before installing APT package configuration part. error is about mirror zone! i checked it and tested with all mirorrs in list but i couldnt config APT yet.i did installation without APT.after booting debian i have apt-get and aptitude commands but didnt work commands like apt-get update or aptitude install ... or aptitude update .... when i ping an ip , it dosent answer cause of errors .(but i have network connection on windows7 correctly. im using connection wired.
I have a problem with the configuration of the NS zone. Looked through the logs, and there:
Apr 28 21:20:19 szewczyk named: /etc/bind/db.domain.pl:1: no current owner name Apr 28 21:20:19 szewczyk named: zone domain.pl/IN: loading from master file /etc/bind/db.domena.pl failed: no owner
Running natios server in Debian 8? I cannot start nagios3 demon, it got following error:
Error: Check period '24x7' specified for service 'check ssh connection' on host 'testk2' is not defined anywhere! Error: Notification period '24x7' specified for service 'check ssh connection' on host 'testk2' is not defined anywhere!
But if I commented following statement in generic-service_nagios2.cfg, it works just fine.
After an automatic update from Debian I get the following error while starting a root terminal: An error occurred while loading or saving configuration information for gnome-terminal. Some of your configuration settings may not work properly. Failed to contact configuration server: the most common cause is a missing or misconfigured D-bus session bus daemon.
I recently tossed Ubuntu for Debian Unstable for my personal machines and I'm having trouble building Emerald into a package. I've already configured and installed the package (using the usual ./configure, make, make install) but I wanted to make a deb for future use (for myself and for others). However every time I try to run dpkg-build I get the following error message.
I was playing with my debian server when something went totally wrong while i was editing something on my network interface,i removed those crap that i wrote and left the network interface configuration as it was
Like for example after re-editing my network interface,it was like :
As i did a network restart, i get this error saying :
There is already a pid file /var/run/dhclient.eth0.pid with pid 2802 killed old client process, removed PID file.
What is this error and how can i fix it,because every time im re booting my server i lost my network config.
I downloaded the first CD Image as instructed at [url] and installed it on my laptop. I would like to install the "Synaptic Package Manager" and a mirror repository so that my system can update.
I have apparently installed " apt-cdrom add" and then typed "apt-get update" and I tried to install the mirror when the system was installed but as the wireless was not connected it apparently did not add the correct details.
I have just installed Debian Weezy and for some reason it just does not see my router.1) is there a good network config script I can use?if not then what files must be edited to setup the network?When I attempt to ping the router, it does not see it. I have checked the cables etc.
I am having trouble using touch pad in jessie. My touch pad was ok when it's in wheezy but after i updated to jessie, i can't really get used to it.
I don't know whether i setting it up wrongly, sometimes, my touchpad will keep dragging, without releasing. And if I click the bottom right of the touch pad, it's not right click; instead i have to use two fingers.
etc. So how can i change to back to a more traditional usage? Also, do jessie have a setting like ubuntu saying disable touch pad while typing?
I'm trying to set up my Intel Wireless 3945ABG (which is supported in the kernel) and I don't understand where to start if I want to use systemd to do this.
I've installed my Debian (Stretch Alpha4) base system using the wireless to download the necessary components but when I boot into the system I need to set up the wireless card separately.
I would prefer to be able to install wireless without the requirement of connecting via ethernet so no package installs other than what is downloaded by the installer.
I can't even find documentation on this specific issue because everyone seems to reference /etc/network/interfaces which AFAIK is not supported in systemd. How do I configure a wireless card using only systemd?
Can I use the config for my current kernel (the jessie 3.16 one), and use it to build a more recent kernel (3.18)? Do I just copy across the config and try and build with it, or is there some tool that will bring across the existing config but also set up reasonable defaults for any new options in the newer kernel, and any other migrations that might need to be applied?
I'm recompiling my kernel on a dell latitude c600 running lenny as I type, and it's taking forever, so far upward of 4 hours.I think I'm getting drivers for ever piece of computing hardware since the univac So I googled "a kernel conf creator" and got [URL]... Its a nice, clean method for finding what hardware your using... you just run lspci cpuinfo make xconfig and put in all the info yourself. So I was thinking: this is exactly the kind of dull, repetitive behavior that computers were made for. Is there a program that can find my hardware info, and make the.config itself, with very little user input?Or should I reinstall debian on another partition and steal the .config from it? Or should I man it up and do it myself?
I know very little about Debian but have an ASUS T100TA tablet which runs fairly well under Debian 8 Jessie (kernel 3.16.0-4-686-pae). I used the following guide successfully to activate the wireless but am having trouble with the audio section of it.URL...
First, I went here and downloaded the file called 'NEW T100_B.state'.URL....
Then I copied it to /var/lib/alsa/asound.state and ran 'alsactl restore' which reported that i had no soundcards.I then downloaded and expanded linux-firmware-master-intel.tar.gz but am not sure what to do with these files. I copied them to /lib/modules/3.16.0-4-686-pae/kernel/drivers/firmware as they are specific for this kernel, but they don't seem to be doing anything and 'alsactl restore' still tells me that I don't have a soundcard. What do I need to do with these files?
I've downloaded configuration files for my VPN, Kovurt, and they don't have a .ovpn file extension. Further, when I tried to enter the information manually (using this guide), I saw that the files only include the <ca> tags, and no <cert>, <key> or <tls-auth> tags.
Here is the content of one of the config files, simply named 'Tokyo' with no extension. (adding .ovpn didn't work either):
Code: Select allclient dev tun proto udp remote 188.8.131.52 443 resolv-retry infinite nobind
I have an open ticket with Kovurt asking for the other info, but I know already that they don't have much in the way of documentation or support for Linux.
how can i do user2 can't get the file /home/user1/www/wp-config.php by using an editor but the webserver can?i mean how can i disallow access on other user's directorys but allow only one? (www-data in case).
I'm currently dual-booting Squeeze & Windows XP on a machine i use frequently.
In my experience on the desktop, i now see no reason to have Windows XP as a boot option, & wanted to try & avoid a full re-installation of Debian in order to remove XP (merging it's partition with / ).
I have a checklist that i put together, but wanted to be sure this was all correct before going forward.
1. Perform full back-up of all data.
2. Boot into Debian, through GUI -
System Tools > Disk Utility
- Select HDD (80GB Hard Disk) - Select windows partition ( /dev/sda1 ) - Format /dev/sda1 to Ext4 Filsystem
3. Boot Live CD
- Use gParted to extend /dev/sda2 (was 38GB, will extend to 78GB)
4. Remove XP from the boot menu.
( Note: My ~ folder is on the same physical drive as / (same volume), but i actually store all Media on a separate physical drive which is formatted in NTFS. I plan on reinstalling XP using a virtual hard disk, & sharing that with the virtual machine.Here is a screenshot of my Disk Utility - [URL]
I run a network with about twenty Debian systems, currently running Etch. I maintain a central passwd and group file, which is regularly copied to each system. This works fairly well, but I have some problems with the system account UIDs and GIDs.
I find different systems often pick different UID and GID values for system accounts like bind, ntp, sshd etc. I think the values chosen at install come from the system UID and GID ranges, and are allocated sequentially, so the values on a system depend on which packages were installed, and the order they were installed in.
Is there any way to specify the UID and GIDs for system accounts at installation time? Are there any other thoughts on how to implement shared passwd and group files (apart from NIS, which I don't want to use)?
I originally installed Kubuntu 7.10 on an ACER laptop (exact model escapes me at the moment) and subsequently upgraded to 9.10 and then to 10.04. Starting with 9.10, I had problems with the computer suddenly turning off in the middle of doing work. Eventually, I figured out that when this happened, the bottom panel had gotten quite warm so it probably a thermal control measure. Further, I discovered that I could prevent this by setting the power regulator to powersave, which effectively kept frequency scaling at 50% and under which I never had the computer suddenly turn, the only exceptions being when unplugged the computer and replugged it in and it would switch to dynamic power policy thus running at full power.
However, after "upgrading" to 10.04, I can't do anything to restrict frequency scaling. Whether I set the regulator to powersave, ondemand or anything, CPU frequency can go to full capacity until it heats the CPU to the critical trip point, invoking poweroff. Sometimes, this would happen just a few minutes after "acpi -t" reported 40C (is there some way to test the output from acpi, I've seen it report obviously wrong figures such as 0C when the room was considerably above freezing?). While trying to figure out what to do, I discovered the /proc/acpi/thermal directory and subsequently the /sys/dev/... directory.
I would like to know which directory I should focus on and what files in order to establish trip points and direct actions that will force the system to reduce heating so it won't reach critical. It's not like it's particularly compute intensive tasks triggering this. I have had it happen while running nothing more than the windowing system, system monitor, terminal and paging through a file with less. I have looked for documentation online but have not found anything that clearly explains what I need to do. The only parts I understand from what I've found are "[critical]: S5", "[active]", and "[passive]". The "[passive]" line included items like "tc=..." and "device=0x...", but I have no idea whatsoever what any of those settings do and the documents do absolutely nothing to explain them.
1) what file I need to edit, 2) what options I can set in the file, 3) what values those options can take and 4) what effects those values have on ACPI's behavior. Lastly, the default setting HAVE GOT TO BE CHANGED. Having poweroff as the first line of defense against overheating is simply UNACCEPTABLE. What would happen if this occurs during the middle of a system upgrade? I know at least enough to figure what needs to be done, even if I can't figure out how to do it. Many users can't even do that and I don't think they should have to. The installation process should automatically detect what methods of reducing thermal output available (reducing frequency scaling, throttling, fans) and set trip points that invoke them before reaching critical.
I run BIND9 in Debian on my server, and did a dist-upgrade last night. Prior to the dist-upgrade, everything worked fine. It does not appear that any of the configuration or zone files were changed. Right now, I am seeing ServFail replies to the A queries:
I just setup a new squeeze debian 6 server, it will work as proxy server with squid. But I have an issue when i want to install sarg (sarg-report), i cannot find the package thru aptitude/apt-get, however it was present in lenny distribution. Is it a miss in squeeze, is it discontinued or should I add a specific entry in /etc/apt/sources.list? (currently squeeze main, squeeze/updates main)
