Debian Configuration :: Apt Wants To Remove Make?

Oct 18, 2010

For some reason from a fresh installation on Debian (Squeeze), Apt is telling me I no longer need the 'make' package and I can remove it. I find this extremely odd & random given I just built this O.S. Why would Debian want to remove such a package and since this is a fresh installation, is there something I did wrong?

Debian Configuration :: How To Send Make Equivalents To Make-kpkg

Mar 26, 2016

I build and use a custom kernel, and use the nvidia driver. This is on debian stretch.

By default, I build the image and headers packages with this line:

CONCURRENCY_LEVEL=8 nice -n19 ionice -c3 fakeroot make-kpkg --initrd --append-to-version=-something --revision=1 kernel_image kernel_headers

These kernel sources are usually the sources from debian, with a couple of more patches that I add. It appears that for nvidia-driver package versions higher than 352.79-1, the kernel headers/sources need to be prepared with 'make prepare' and 'make prepare scripts'. It's that simple. I concluded this after the nvidia dkms build failed on my custom kernel, but then succeeded after I pointed it to the full sources, but only after running 'make prepare' and 'make prepare scripts' on them. The problem is that this make-kpkg scheme doesn't appear to do this, or if it does, it doesn't properly include in the headers everything that it should.

Debian Configuration :: Remove 'debian-sys-maint' Account?

Mar 8, 2010

Does anyone know if I can successfully remove / delete the 'debian-sys-maint' account from MySQL? I noticed it there and appears to be something the Debian developers / maintainers of MySQL package added. I am guessing it's there to manage package updates and system maintenance as a back door of sorts. Anyone know if I can remove this account and not break the package or database?

Debian Configuration :: How To Remove VM From System

Jan 10, 2016

I would like to remove a specific domU (test01--pv--guest) from my machine. I am not sure how far/to what extent to remove files. Here are the files and properties it seems I should remove:

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 10 Jan 9 11:05 /dev/disk/by-id/dm-name-xenvg-test01--pv--guest--disk -> ../../dm-3
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 10 Jan 9 01:03 /dev/disk/by-id/dm-name-xenvg-test01--pv--guest--swap -> ../../dm-2
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 7 Jan 9 11:05 /dev/mapper/xenvg-test01--pv--guest--disk -> ../dm-3
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 7 Jan 9 01:03 /dev/mapper/xenvg-test01--pv--guest--swap -> ../dm-2
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 7 Jan 9 11:05 /dev/xenvg/test01-pv-guest-disk -> ../dm-3

The above link to dm-2 and dm-3.

brw-rw---- 1 root disk 254, 0 Jan 9 01:03 /dev/dm-0
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 254, 1 Jan 9 01:03 /dev/dm-1
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 254, 2 Jan 9 01:03 /dev/dm-2
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 254, 3 Jan 9 11:05 /dev/dm-3
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 254, 4 Jan 9 01:03 /dev/dm-4
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 254, 5 Jan 9 01:03 /dev/dm-5
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 254, 6 Jan 9 01:03 /dev/dm-6
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 254, 7 Jan 9 01:03 /dev/dm-7

Will they be deleted automatically or should/can I remove them? How do I check the need for the other dm-? files? As indicated below, it seems like some may be duplicates.

I also found this set in /etc/lvm/archive/:

-rw------- 1 root root 2909 Oct 17 00:41 Relaise-vg_00000-1453251236.vg
-rw------- 1 root root 2929 Oct 24 22:08 Relaise-vg_00001-1530642081.vg
-rw------- 1 root root 2924 Oct 25 19:33 Relaise-vg_00002-328450675.vg
-rw------- 1 root root 2901 Oct 26 19:53 Relaise-vg_00003-1555350964.vg
-rw------- 1 root root 2902 Oct 26 19:53 Relaise-vg_00004-1044927704.vg

[Code] ....

Some of these seem like duplicates. This may be due to multiple attempts to build the volumes. Is there a way to determine if all of the are useful?

Debian Configuration :: Make Boot Partition Within LVM In Debian Usin Preseed?

Mar 16, 2011

I know that boot partition is possible to create within debian distribution that has grub 2.0, as I have done before with ubuntu. I have been trying many different options with my preseed file but it keeps taking the boot partition out of LVM and creating and extended partition too and then creates the LVM primary partition.

### Partitioning.
# you can specify a disk to partition. The device name can be given in either

Debian Configuration :: Apt-get Auto-remove Removes Nothing

Aug 10, 2015

The apt-get autoremove command, I use Debian 8 for some time now and I often install a package, test it for some minutes and remove it then. I noticed that in most cases (if not all, I'm not completely sure) all the dependencies that were installed with the package (mostly libraries, of course) stay installed on the system when I remove the package.

And there is no output of apt-get that there are unnecessary pacakges which I can remove with apt-get autoremove. The autoremove command does nothing.Before I changed to Debian, I used Ubuntu and there all the dependencies are removed with apt-get autoremove when I uninstalled a package.My question is now, is this normal? if there are fundamental differences in which packages "autoremove" removes between Debian and Ubuntu?

Debian Configuration :: Apt-get Auto-remove After Installing Jessie

Jun 20, 2015

After installing Jessie, apt-get gives me a huge list of packages with the suggestion to autoremove them. Now, I've tried auto-remove once and was left with a naked Gnome, so I was wondering if there's another way to find out which packages I should keep and which I can safely remove. Is it safe to delete packages that cannot be found using the search function for the stable release? I checked them one by one here URL....How about linux images that won't appear in the above search?

linux-image-3.14-0.bpo.1-amd64
linux-image-3.14-0.bpo.2-amd64
linux-image-3.16-0.bpo.2-amd64
linux-image-3.16-0.bpo.3-amd64
linux-image-3.2.0-4-amd64

How about results shown by deborphan?

Debian Configuration :: Remove Item From Desktop Menus

Feb 7, 2016

I am using Wheezy 7.9, Gnome Classic, gdm3 . I have two menu instances of Master PDF Editor, one instance in the Graphics menu and the other in the Office category. I have tried using Alacarte to remove one of the instances. Alacarte shows that the item has been removed but in fact it still shows up in the menu. The procedure I used was to open Alacarte as root user, delete the item, close Alacarte and re-start the computer.

Debian Configuration :: 'Add/Remove Applications' Disappeared After Upgrade?

Feb 22, 2010

I had some problems about a week ago with installing Python2.6-minimal (as an issue, it got resolved), however, after the problem was resolved, 'Add/Remove Applications' disappeared after upgrade was complete. I usually do not use this program for installing, etc., if I can help it, but do use it more often for web address reference when I am considering installing a new program, etc. Question is,is there some way to find out if it is merely lurking somewhere in my system... & then to once again add it to my menu list? Or, if that is not the case, to reinstall it via apt-get, aptitude, or some way like this? I could not find this application (or whatever it is called) in the Synaptic Package Manager.

Debian Configuration :: Remove Upstart In Favour Of Sysvinit?

Sep 3, 2010

I had read that squeeze was to use upstart instead of sysvinit. Anyway, in playing with splashy, I decided to install upstart to see if it would work, which it does just fine. When I check for updates in synaptic, it always wants to remove upstart in favour of sysvinit. I wouldn't have a problem with that except, with sysvinit, squeeze no longer shuts down or starts up.

Debian Configuration :: How To Remove Package That Ties With Core Ones

Aug 7, 2011

I have this package dependency question for a while. I have brand new Squeeze system. I selected desktop during installation. Gnome is default system but I turned off gdm3 and uses fluxbox as window manager. I understand if two packages are tied together funtionally so that removal of either package terminates one feature. Above cases, many small packages only depends on the core packages. The core packages work fine without games, other programs.

There are so many programs that I want to remove in the system. For examples, ekiga is a VoIP program that I never use it. When I tried to remove it using apt-get or aptitude, it suggests entire gnome packages will be removed also, which is illogical. The only solution I found is I need to manually remove the package files. I haven't tried it yet.

Debian Configuration :: Permissions & Fuse - Mount A Remove Filesystem Onto Own Server

Feb 10, 2011

I'm trying to mount a remove filesystem onto my own server. I am able to do this, however I can only access it as root, or if I chmod 777 the lot. Obviously I want to be as secure as possible, so I'd like to avoid either one of those options. Another option is to mount it directly into my home directory, but previously when I was trying out Ubuntu this caused Samba problems - and I was advised mounting in my home dir was a workaround rather than a proper fix.

I have root access with sudo on my own server. I've not set a root pasword, and until I need to I'll avoid it. I have a user account with full control over my own home directory on the remote server. I am mounting using fstab - sshfs#username@remoteserver:/media/sdk/home/username/ /media//remote/ fuse    user,idmap=user 0 0

What I would like to do is without changing the permissions on the remote server change the permissions when they are mounted on my own server. I would like them to be in the group sambausers for example. Instead they are owned by root and in the group of 1024 (which I have not set). Additionally for this to work they would have to have 770 on my home server and 700 on the remote server....

Debian Configuration :: No Rule To Make Target Modules

Sep 17, 2015

i'm trying to install driver for some PCI device but i have problems with it - when i run it it gives me an error

Code: Select allmake: Entering directory `/lib/modules/2.6.32-5-686/build'
make: *** No rule to make target `modules'.  Stop.
make: Leaving directory `/lib/modules/2.6.32-5-686/build'

i've tried to find solution in internets but have no success usually they say that problem is that ppl forget to download kernel-headers and kernel-sources or unpack kernel-sources or make symlink usr/src/linux but i've done it all and the result is the same.i think the root of problem is that `/lib/modules/ 2.6.32-5-686/build' folder is empty but there have to be this RULE, so what i have to do to have it there? my system is Debian 6.0.10 Squeeze, Kernel 2.6.32-5-686.

Debian Configuration :: Wireless Won't Make Connection After Upgrade?

May 15, 2010

I have a Dell Mini 9 with a Broadcom wireless adapter. I've had it working for months on Debian Sid, but recently I updated the entire OS to get KDE 4.4 (I also went from a 2.6.30 to a 2.6.32 kernel). Something in that upgrade caused wireless to cease to work properly. The problem is similar to the one described in this thread, but no resolution is mentioned there: viewtopic.php?f=5&t=50892 I've gone through all the steps to install the STA drivers/wl module for it, and it basically appears to be working. Using wicd, I can see all the wireless networks in the area.

The problem occurs when trying to connect. When I try to connect to my WPA wireless network, it eventually fails claiming a bad password. When I turned the wireless network into an unsecured network, it eventually fails claiming it's unable to get an IP. I've also tried at the command line with wpa_supplicant and it initially appears to work but in fact it hasn't. I've also got Kubuntu 10.04 installed on this machine, and it can connect without issue (using the proprietary driver that Ubuntu's hardware driver manager allows one to use).Does anyone know what has caused this? I even tried the earlier kernel, so that's not it.

Debian Configuration :: Can Make Openvpn Faster Like Rsync

Oct 22, 2010

I use openvpn to connect otherwise isolated machines, and use samba to share filesystems across the vpn, which works just fine.But I recently discovered that copying files using rsync -e ssh is so much faster than copying from a mounted filesystem - like about 5 times faster.I've got comp-lzo enabled in both server and the client, at least I think I have, the directive is there in both the server.conf and the client.conf files, but how do I check that it's active?Does anyone know if I can make openvpn behave more like rsync, because copying is easier than rsyncing?

Debian Configuration :: Torrent Traffic Very Slow / Make It Up?

Jul 10, 2011

I am running on debian squeeze 6.0.2. I have been using it for the last id say 3 weeks and really am enjoying it.

I generally use transmission-gtk to share files over the internet. Normally I seed torrents at 110-160kb/s for hours at a time. However after messing around with firestarter my upload speed for seeding torrents rarely peaks over 70kb/s. I have purged firestarter with no success of my regular upload speed, and am very confused as to what happened. I also notice sometimes when it will get to about 70kb/s it will immediately drop down to the 20-30kb/s range.

For incoming bittorrent connections I use port 37294. I have set port 37294 to be allowed in my firewall, and forwarded in my router (since purging firestarter did not help I just reinstalled it).

I have also read allowing ports 6881-6889 is important, but I have never done that in my history of using torrents, and I have never experienced a decrease in UL speed like this.

Have I done something incorrect? I have never had this issue on other machines?

Debian Configuration :: Make Fn Keys Work Independently Of Environment

Jan 5, 2016

I want fn* keys working for all users in all DE/WM and at tty too. I want it even if nobody logged in. Is it possible? How to set it up?

I mean these keys:

toggle wifikbd backlight +/−screen backlight +/−enable/disable screentoggle screensenable/disable touchpadvolume controls

I understand that some of them may work only with Xorg (e.g. toggle screens), but screen and kbd backlight and volume may work at tty too (because I can change this from tty when xorg is down). I know how to do it all from the console, but I want to bind keys with actions.

E.g. I can change kbd backlight with dbus and attach this action to key in my wm config, but it is not what I want. I want to make it global. I don’t understand which layer may provide the functionality for all users. Now only two keys works as I expect: toggle wifi and toggle touchpad. I haven’t set it up, it works out of the box.
