Debian Configuration :: Can't Run Any Machine On VirtualBox OSE / Resolve This?

Apr 10, 2011

I've installed newest Debian (Squeeze) and then on fresh system made instalation of VirtualBox OSE as it is written on http://wiki.debian.org/VirtualBox.
I've also created virtual machine, however when I try to run it I got error message:

RTR3Init failed with rc=-1912(rc=-1912)
Please install the virtual-ose-dkms package and execute 'modprobe vboxdrv' as root

And later on code...

Debian Configuration :: Ssh: Could Not Resolve Hostname

Apr 18, 2011

So I recently upgraded from Debian 5 to Debian 6 and now for some reason I cant SSH into my server FROM my server. All of the following fail with the same error:

[URL]

They all come back with: ssh: Could not resolve hostname 127.0.0.1: Name or service not known. I never actually tried this before upgrading so I'm not sure if its caused by the upgrade, but I would like to get this fixed. Also, ping with all of the above hostnames fails as well. I can SSH in from other computers and I can SSH out from the server. For whatever reason, I cant SSH from the server to the server though.

Debian Configuration :: Ssh Cannot Resolve Nodename After Wakeonlan

Jul 9, 2015

Previously, I issued a wakeonlan command to my sleeping debian (wheezy stable) server from (a mac) within my home network and then ssh in no problem. Worked like a charm. I could put it to sleep again and wake it up etc. Perfecto.

However, for some reasonI can now only ssh in once the server is rebooted (by physically switching it off then on again). If I put it to sleep then wake it, it does wake up --- however, ssh cannot then resolve the hostname:

---

Debian Configuration :: VirtualBox Not Running

Jul 21, 2015

I recently installed debian testing, amd64, on my box and I am running the xfce desktop. When I login, I always get a bubble popup telling me that virtualbox is not running. Is it something I should be worried about? I use only Linux on my machine.

Debian Configuration :: Cannot Resolve Local Network Names Only

Jul 25, 2010

I have three Debian systems running, along with several XP laptops, PS3 and two DirecTV systems. I use two of the three Debian systems as media servers, and the third is an older system mostly for playing around with. My home network is running fine with the following nuisance. The two newer Debian (Lenny) systems are <barney> and <mitzi>, the older is named <oscar>, running Debian Sarge 3.1. From either locally or remote login to <barney> and <mitzi> I can ssh into either of the other two systems, however when logged into <oscar> I cannot ssh by name to either of the other systems. e.g. ssh: mitzi: Temporary failure in name resolution..However, from <oscar> I can ping outside my network (e.g. ping www.google.com) with no problems.I can also ssh to the other systems via IP address, just not by name.

I've compared the /etc/ssh/ssh_config, /etc/resolv.conf, /etc/ssh/sshd_config and other files between the two systems and not seeing anything peculiar. arp, route, etc., don't show different behavior between the systems either.

Debian Configuration :: Can't Login As Root On Gnome / Resolve This?

Mar 9, 2011

I have squeeze with gnome. Various apps let me log in as root when needed to but if I logout as a user and try to login as root it won't let me (won't authenticate password). I had this problem before and reinstalled Debian and definitely checked for it to allow me to do this and it worked for a while after new install. Apparently some update overrode my preferences. This is a major defect and may force me to abandon Debian. I don't use root often but I don't have any use for a operating system that won't let me use it. Anyone know how to correct this. I am not interested in using a terminal on a regular basis or ever for that matter.

Debian Configuration :: When Open A Web Browser - Can't Resolve The Host Name

Mar 29, 2011

I've just installed Debian Squeeze from a live CD. When I open a web browser (be it iceweasel or epiphany) and try to go to google.com, it tells me it can't resolve the host name. [Edit: They do, however, allow me to go anywhere on debian.org, minus the search feature] I also get the same error when I try to go to my website running on a local server. However, when I type the server's IP address (192.168.0.10), it goes to the website fine. Basically, any program I run that needs to resolve a host name returns an error, with the exception of the host command:

I've tried changing my DNS server IP from 192.168.0.1 (my router, configured to provide DNS) to 192.168.1.254 (my internet modem, also configured to provide DNS). That didn't help any. Then I changed my DNS server IP to the same one used by the modem, and now everything works.

I've tried googling my way out of the issue, and I've found where someone had the same issue as I've got and fixed it by adding "blacklist ipv6" to their /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf file, but that didn't work for me.

So, recap: Why does resolving domain names fail for certain applications (except the "host" program) when the DNS server IP is that of my router or modem (which works fine for all of my other computers), but suddenly works when I point the computer straight to my ISP's DNS servers, and how can I permanently fix the problem?

Debian Configuration :: Networking: Connected To Wifi, Webpages Won't Resolve?

Oct 2, 2010

I just installed Debian with the latest testing iso, and I'm having problems connecting to the web via browser. I can ping hostnames (i.e. google.com, debian.org, etc.) from the terminal and it resolves just fine, but if I try to load a page from Iceweasel or Epiphany it says the page won't load because it can't resolve the hostname. Can someone tell me what I'm missing?the detail that I'm running amd64. I've checked iptables and found no entries, and for good measure I flushed it to be certain. I also checked resolv.conf but that looked normal, just a nameserver entry pointing to my home router. I'm new to Debian, but have used Linux for years, and I'm genuinely stumped. I'm sure the solution will smack me in the head for its simplicity, but nonetheless I need at least a shove in the right direction.

Debian Configuration :: Virtualbox Crashes When Fullscreen Is Activated

Sep 22, 2015

I have installed installed Debian 9 (stretch/unstable) which has GNOME 3.16.3 and runs Linux kernel 4.1.0-2 by default in Virtualbox 5.0. The host OS is Windows 8.1 On each instance of activating full screen mode in the VM, a freeze occurs then an abrupt close (abort).

I am inclined to believe that this problem resides in the OS (Debian 9) rather than Virtualbox or the Host. The reason being is that prior to installing Debian 9 (today) I had Jessie installed for quite some time where this error/issue never surfaced.

This issue is rather complicated in the sense that if alternating between full screen and normal mode quickly, this occurs whereas, if done every 10 seconds or thereabout it happens almost seamlessly. Also, if 3DAcceleration is switched off that doesn't occur.

How do I find the root of this problem and a resolution to it?

Debian Configuration :: Multiple Network Interfaces With VirtualBox?

Mar 29, 2010

I have a rather urgent problem with my network, I got two virtual network interfaces one internal and one external. The problem is; I can't get connection to internet. The external NIC is set as a NAT and the internal is... internal.

/etc/network/interfaces
auto eth1
iface eth1 inet static
address 192.168.1.200
netmask 255.255.255.0

Running with this configuration makes my internet connect go away, however if I remove the configuration for eth1 everything is working fine.

Debian Configuration :: VirtualBox Doesn't See Any Network Settings?

Jun 3, 2010

I need to set up a little virtual network with Debian Lenny guests (the host is Debian Squeeze, but I don't think it matters). I installed Lenny in a VM and it works fine. Then I cloned the hard drive, garion@Laptop:~$ VBoxManage clonevdi Linux 1.vdi Linux 2.vdi created a new VM with exactly the same settings as the first one and booted the new disc. The problem is that there's no eth0 in the new VM, but it is in the original one. Also if I "unplug" the cable, dmesg won't notice anything. In the original VM it works fine. They both have the same virtual network card: PCnet-FAST III (Am79C973). I've also tried NAT as well as internal network settings.

Debian Configuration :: Virtualbox 4.1 Breaks Suspend / Hibernate?

Jul 25, 2011

I have installed the latest virtualbox 4.1 on my desktop and laptop. It hosed suspend and hibernate.

The laptop is A Dell D630 with Intel Core2 Duo CPU, the desktop is an AMD based ASUS M3N78-VM mobo with Athlon II x2 250 CPU. Debian Testing 32-bit (same results with the 2.6.39 and the 3.0 kernels). Both have nvidia cards though - the desktop an integrated 8200, the laptop a NVS 135M. But suspend/hibernate was working before with the 4.0 series virtualbox.

The workaround is to clear the vboxpci vboxnetadp vboxnetflt vboxdrv modules from the memory before suspend/hibernate. I added the

service vboxdrv stop
rmmod vboxpci vboxnetadp vboxnetflt vboxdrv

lines to my sleep script (i dont use power managers, just the acpi powerbutton/lid scripts modified). Everything is ok now.

Debian Configuration :: VirtualBox: Host-only Networking: Static IP Guest Addresses?

Jun 6, 2011

Debian Testing host, Winduhs XP guest. Winduhs is not allowed to directly access The Internets, and I am not setting up bridging as that makes it possible for the guest to mount layer 2 attacks on the LAN. I need for the guest to tunnel through the host without being able to see anything on the host, so it can then get access to The Internets, while being protected by iptables (Shorewall).

Used to be with VMware I had host-only set and the guest in a different class c (192.168.2.1) from the host (192.168.1.1) I turned on ipforwarding, set Shorewall rules, and it all worked. Now I have everything set with VirtualBox, and it does not work. Guest can ping its interface but not host. Host can ping vboxnet0. Host is supposed to masquerade guest's 192.168.2.1 through to the default out at 192.168.1.1, but it's not. I think a clue is in routing, but I don't know what's wrong.

Debian Configuration :: Dual-Booting To XP - Busted - Program Phone Using VirtualBox Or Wine

For some reason I'm suspicious of the Winduhs boot files, but I've run fixboot and the boot repair utility in Winduhs. Do I have to reinstall Winduhs?

Debian Configuration :: Can't Ping Windows Xp Machine

Jan 23, 2010

I recently did a clean install of Debian 5, and a backup program called BackupPC. Both machines are on a small local network served by a router. Both machines have statically mapped IP addresses, done by the router via matching MAC addresses in a table of corresponding IP addresses (192.168.0.2 (HP-PC-XP), 192.168.0.3 (Debian). I configured Backup PC correctly (I think)...Upon running Backuppc, the first thing it tries to do when its time to run a backup is to ping the machine to be backed up. The name of the PC is stored in a backup pc config file. (I believe BackupPC does a DHCP request with the machine name to get the ip address, but not sure). Running the backup results in BackupPC tells me that it can't ping my xp machine. If I open up a terminal window in debian, i can successfully ping my xp machine when i use the ip address. 92.160.0.2 If I ping using the host name of the xp machine (e.g. HP-PC_XP), the ping command displays some ip address i've never seen...something like 63.123.155.104....how is it getting that and how can it be corrected?

I recall that nslookup looks at the local hosts file first to resolve the name....i look in my hosts file and found no such address (only contained localhost)....now what?

Debian Configuration :: SMP Kernel On Uniproc Machine

It would not have made sense.What should I do to make sure I'm running a uniproc kernel? I wanted to edit config-2.6.26-2-686 and change all the lines ending in SMP=yes to SMP=no but am not sure what this will do.

Debian Configuration :: Cannot Remote Desktop To Machine?

Dec 16, 2010

I cannot remote desktop to the Debian machine from anywhere,hether within the same network, or on a different network elsewhere. Also, the personal wiki I set up on it to be viewed via a normal web browser cannot be accessed, either. Both time out when attempting to connect to them. I can still ping the Debian machine when on the same network, though.

This started some time ago when we had a failure occur on our main server.had to powercycle everything in order to restore things back to normal, the Debian machine included. Since that time, this problem started to occur. This is a major thorn in my side in attempting to prepare for our website to move,I've been unable to figure out how to fix it.Originally, I thought it would be something in between the Debian machine and anything else, which would mean something like our firewall box or our hardware switch was the problem. But the tech support people who maintain those for us confirm that there is nothing wrong with them, so now I'm not certain anymore.

Configuration :: Sid Machine Can't Connect To Debian.org / Solve It?

Feb 1, 2011

My sid machine currently can't access debian.org, through apt hitting the repositories, surfing through Epiphany or Iceweasel, or pinging the server directly. It was working fine until about four days ago. However, if I type in the IP address, I can access the website, so it must be some sort of DNS issue. My home server, running Squeeze, can access debian.org just fine. Any suggestions for how to fix it?

Debian Configuration :: Copy Full System To Another Machine

Mar 31, 2016

I am setting up a mail server on debian. Once it's done, I'd like to have an indentical server on another machine, where debian will also be installed. The solution has to be hardware agnostic, so source machine is different than destination machine. I was reading on some wiki page that one can simply copy the root filesystem via rsync to the computer that he'd like to install the system on, then chroot to it and test if everything works. I'm guessing I'd have to change a couple things before, like :

- The network config
- The /etc/fstab file (disks and partitions may be different)

This article is about using rsync to transfer a copy of your "/" tree, excluding a few select folders. This approach is considered to be better than disk cloning with dd since it allows for a different size, partition table and filesystem to be used, and better than copying with cp -a as well, because it allows greater control over file permissions, attributes, Access Control Lists (ACLs) and extended attributes.
