Debian Configuration :: Environment To Run Old Linux Games-template

Mar 20, 2016

I have some old linux based games and applications that require old libraries to run.But in the mists of time, I've lost the scripts on how to set up a sandbox environment to run them. Any template for that type of fiddle? I should be able to resource libraries contemporary to the games from my collection of old distros, but my web fu on this matter(jargon) is cracked. It would have to be easier that continually trying to fiddle the MS OS version to run under Wine/PlayOnLinux. I've got Myst II, Civilisation CTP and Railway Tycoon II, although I think the last app I ran was Word Perfect 8.

Debian Configuration :: Wicd: Custom Template Does NOT Load

Aug 13, 2011

My university has a secure wireless network that has the following specs: WPA2, 1st Authentication TTLS, 2nd Authentication PAP, Encryption CCMP or AES, Thawte_Premium_Server_CA certificate and username and password.

I have never gotten this to work with wicd. First of all, wicd does not have a default template for this configuration. This led me in the past to quickly install Network-Manager (on top of XFCE...). While this has worked for me just fine. Recently I found out that this functionality is possible in wicd by creating your own template. So I did and here it is!

name = WPA2 Enterprise TTLS
author = Andres Cimmarusti
version = 1


I did everything outlined here: [URL] (that is I saved the file as wpa2-ttls and then added this entry to the active file in /etc/wicd/encryption/templates/).

Sadly wicd's gui does not load my template!, the logs show no errors! simply refuses to take it. I cannot see any mistake in the above... do you?Is this some debian bug perhaps?This is the most important issue for me, before accepting to use wicd instead of NM.

Debian Configuration :: 3D Games Graphics Won't Work

Aug 13, 2010

I've been having this problem for a long time now. It started suddenly and without apparent cause. 3D games won't work. At first I tried to play OpenArena, and it didn't work, the graphics went terribly slow and choppy, videos were not continious, but rather a succession of pictures of movement. I tried installing and re installing the game several times, but nothing... Now, I'm trying to run hedgewars (the re-make of worms) and it doesn't crash or anything, but the graphics are too slow and choppy again. This is the output from the terminal:


The 'there is no soundcard' message is scary... I have been having sound problems lately, where sounds just stops working in all applications, and only restarting the system will bring sound back. So as you can see my audio and video seem to be on the wrong track. But I don't know how to diagnose the disease... by the way. I installed hedgewars from squeeze though I have lenny. I added the squeeze line to sources.list.and then apt-get-ed it. Is that OK?

Debian Configuration :: Man-db In Chroot Ssh Environment

Aug 26, 2015

I've been bashing around this for a couple of days, and could not find answer by using google. My debian 8.1.0 jessie runs perfectly fine. To perform SSH chroot jail, I issued an apt-get install makejail.

The ssh chroot environment runs great. I used makejail configuration scripts. The man pages are perfectly available from TTY login. Yet from a SSH session (chroot jailed) the man pages could not be found.

My MANPATH environment variable points at /usr/share/man

Running "mandb -c" from a SSH session as root tells:

0 man subdirectories contained newer manual pages.
0 manual pages were added.
0 stray cats were added.
0 old database entries were purged.

simply copying the contents of the /usr/share/man to /jail/usr/share/man
and running the "mandb -c" command gives lots of "dangling symlink" errors.

Perhaps the /jail directory need some dependent files, or change file permissions somewhere but I just couldn' t figure that out.

Debian Configuration :: Environment Variables For All Users

Nov 27, 2015

I'm newbie on Debian, and I just installed Debian 8.2. (I used to run openSuse, and I see Debian is quite different.)

Where should I set environment variables (like PATH or JAVA_HOME) in order to affect all users?

I read some documentation about that, but It is not clear for me, the difference among "/etc/environment", "/etc/bash.bashrc" and "/etc/profile".

(In openSuse, I used to create a file "/etc/bash.bashrc.local" and set the environment variables there, in order these settings are not lost with updates.)

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.

Asus N56VZ, Debian stretch.

Debian Configuration :: How To Modify Traffic Between Two Interfaces In Linux

Aug 8, 2015

I have a laptop connected to internet via wlan0. I also have eth0 interface and with it I share internet. I want to modify/filter all the traffic passing by the first laptop, something like this:

Code: Select all                    *---------------------------*
                    |        LAPTOP 1           |      *--------------* ?
                    |-----*    *------*    *----*      |              |
    INTERNET<------>|wlan0|<-->|MY_APP|<-->|eth0|<---->|ANOTHER LAPTOP|
                    |-----*    *------*    *----|      |              |
                    *---------------------------*      *--------------*

I know that in FreeBSD it is possible to use ipfw for that purpose, because it build-in into kernel. We set for example rule Code: Select allipfw add divert 2000 ip from any to

and we can use our own application to process those packets, reinject them forward etc. It will work also fast, because as I said, it build into kernel.

Is there any standart Linux-based solution to do the same? I found some info about netmap-ipfw. Is this a correct solution? Or I have to use for example IP-aliases and iptables to do that?

I need to process all the IP-packets, not only TCP/UDP/etc-protocol. Solution also must be very fast.

Debian Configuration :: Rsync From Linux Server To Planet NAS

Jan 5, 2016

After hours of struggles I'm still not able to configure a simple backup from a Debian Jessie server to a Planet branded NAS.

Configuration is as follows:
user name: user
pass: user12
share name: user. Inside that directory, there is bkp directory where stuff should go. bkp was created using Dolphin.
The NAS offers smb service and is accessible through Dolphin file manager and from Windows stations.

Server also has a user named "user" and a password "1"..

Fstab looks like this:
// /mnt/NAS cifs username=user,password=user12,iocharset=utf8 0 0

The command is: Code: Select allrsync -ahv /home/user/Desktop/ /mnt/NAS/bkp/

Errors are: Code: Select allrsync: chgrp "/mnt/NAS/bkp/." failed: Operation not permitted (1)
Code: Select allrsync: mkstemp "/mnt/NAS/bkp/.teszt.YEmVM3" failed: Operation not permitted (1) where teszt is a file created by me and YEmVM3 seems to be randomly generated character string.

Debian Configuration :: Changing Linux I / O Scheduler For VMware Guest

Ubuntu :: E: Could Not Perform Immediate Configuration On 'util-linux'

May 15, 2010

I ran into this problem myself, and I've seen that others have had the same problem when updating from Karmic to Lucid via apt-get. There is a bug in apt for Lucid, and it has been noted on one of the Ubuntu lists

This is a simple how-to and a work-around to the upgrading with apt-get:

1) Update your sources.list file to replace all instances of 'karmic" to 'lucid' : $ sudo sed -i 's/karmic/lucid/g' /etc/apt/sources.list

2) Run apt-get update: $ sudo apt-get update

3) Run a regular upgrade; $ sudo apt-get upgrade -y

Here is where the problem comes in. Apt is looking for the util-linux package, which is part of upstart-job, but someone apparenlty forgot to write the code to tell apt-about this (whoops!)

So, you now need to install upstart-job by itself. By skipping this step you will get the error message when you try to run step 5: "E: Could not perform immediate configuration on 'util-linux'.Please see man 5 apt"

4) $ sudo apt-get install upstart-job

5) Now you can run apt-get dist-upgrade: $ sudo apt-get dist-upgrade -y

General :: How Linux Configuration Files Work?

Feb 5, 2011

I've been struggling for a couple of days to understand how configuration files work in Linux but haven't really found any clear information regarding that.My main question, as there is not a standard configuration file format in Linux, is how the format of a configuration file is understood by a Linux program? How the program reads its configuration file and how it understands its syntax (file format)? Also, a further question is how the program knows where its configuration file is being located?

For example inittab has its own "Identifier:RunLevel:Action:Command" format. How this is recognised by the "init" process?

Debian :: Can't Get Games To Play Right

I'm running Debian on an old iMac G3 power pc. I've just loaded a couple of games for my daughter but the music is staticky and the cursor flickers and goes invisible. Is there anyway to increase virtual memory or something that will make these game work??I know the hardware is old but one of the few(only thing) things it did well with the old OSX system was play games, so I know its not the hardware.

Well I had no sound at all because I couldn't get my audigy ls working with lenny so I'm useing my onboard sound (a realtek). I changed all my sound options to ALC 880 Analog now I have sound for movies and mp3's but not in games or on the web (ie ....., farmville).

Debian :: Change Settings For Games In Jessie

Jan 15, 2016

I am currently running Jessie (Debian GNU/Linux 8 (jessie))

On occasion I like to play Tetravex, Sudoku, etc. I also like to play it at different levels of difficulty and complexity. It used to be very easy to change these levels, but now it appears to be impossible because Jessie offers me the possibility to close the game, move it to another workspace or minimize/maximize/resize/etc it.

But change the level of difficulty?

Nope, not a chance. That option, my dear fellow, is no longer available.

Why? Who decided to change the user interface to such an extent that simple and basic operations are no longer available? Did a MS or Mac mole infiltrate the Debian project team?

Debian Multimedia :: Fullscreen Games Cause Big Number On Screen?

Mar 7, 2011

I have recently switched to Debian and got everything working great except for one thing..When I want to kill some time by playing a game (in wine or native) in fullscreen it works fine except for a big number I get in the left corner of my screen that won't go away until I close the game and open the ATI control center.This is very frustrating and quite annoying. I am using a dual monitor setup and I have tried disabling my 2nd monitor when I play a game but that still causes this problem. Also I am using the drivers I got right off the ATI website.

Debian Hardware :: Glxgears Showing 900 FPS But 3d Games Very Slow?

Aug 13, 2011

I just installed Debian Squeeze a couple days ago and haven't had any problems so far except trying to get 3D acceleration to work with my Radeon 5770 card. When running glxgears, I get over 900 FPS and the gears are spinning great. When I try to run a 3D game like OpenArena, ScorchedEarth, or FlightGear, they are all so slow as to be unplayable. (extremely slow)

I've been trying to get this working for a while and had no luck.As per internet advice, I installed firmware-linux-free and firmware-linux-nonfree.

In glxinfo, it says "direct rendering: yes"

In my /var/log/Xorg.0.log file it says:

(WW) RADEON(0): Direct rendering disabled
(II) RADEON(0): Acceleration disabled
(WW) Falling back to old probe method for vesa
(WW) Falling back to old probe method for fbdev

Debian Hardware :: ALSA Sound Not Persistent In Games Or System

Jul 26, 2011

I recently changed from Gentoo to Debian Squeeze. All went fine but I have an ALSA issue. I have an AMD Athlon II X4 board with a Nvidia (Realtek) sound chip. After installing I got a lot of "no such device" errors, so I installed the Realtek driver the Debian way and the errors vanished. I could successful run alsactl init and alsamixer.

At this point there is no sound neither in games nor system. alsaplay says (on the screen) that it is playing a wav file but there is no sound. My test ''dd if=/dev/urandom of=/dev/dsp'' complains "/dev/dsp : no such file or directory". Well, all clear. modprobing the snd-*-oss modules brings sound alive but I have to do this after every restart. I have no clue how to make this persistent the Debian way.

Debian Multimedia :: 3D Games Fail Recent Squeeze Update?

X Error of failed request: BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)
Major opcode of failed request: 137 (NV-GLX)


I can mv xorg.conf to xorg.conf-pre and nexuiz will fire-up. Without 3d of course. I spent an hour or so last week going over my xorg.conf but it just ain't broke! Someone else saw it, too, and reported it but his post remains alone in the thread as of 10 minutes ago.
