I have been missing disc space in my / partion. Was 20Go.I deleted a unsed partition and then increase my / partition to 133 Go.Did this in yast and can see that the partition has this size. But when I restart my suse, the size of the partition remains to 20Go.
I've been testing Squeeze to determine whether KDE4 is finally suitable for my primary machine. Everything seems to be working fine except for detection of IDE devices. My CD/DVD drive no longer automounts and the reason seems to be that no device is being created. My Lenny system detects the drive as /dev/hda, but no such device exists in Squeeze. During boot, Squeeze appears to detect the drive as /dev/sr0 (according to dmesg), but in fact that device does not exist either.I'm actually running the Lenny kernel, as I am unable to compile my Ralink wireless driver (rt2860sta) using the Squeeze kernel. Also, for inquiring minds, I use removable HDD drive bays on my systems to simplify testing.
I had installed ssh but something went wrong and I uninstalled it. I removed the SSH configuration files by hand (I deleted all /etc/ssh folder).After ssh installation (I mean apt-get install ssh) I noticed that I have no SSH configuration files.I tried apt-get install openssh-server but i still have no SSH configuration files.
I seem to have a major discrepancy between what df reports and what du reports. df tells me that I am using 20G, but I am only able to find 9.5G using du. What follows are the ls -l of root, a df of my system, and the du for every directory in root that is not a symbolic link, mnt, or proc. I would appreciate any suggestions on where to look for the remaining 10.5G that seems to have disappeared. I am running under VM Player code...
trying to get wireless usb's to work with a fresh install of Squeeze and I'm having no luck!one is the rt28070 (Linksys) and the other one is a D-Link DWL-132 I'm at my wits end; trying to get this working for a friend and its driving me bananas!!
I just got done installing Debian Squeeze on a system..Everything seems to work where audio is concerned, except for audacious.I can get streaming music from vlc/totem as well as play music files (mp3, ogg, flac, ect.).I was wondering if anyone else experiences this problem..It should be noted that I have the Debian multimedia repository enabled as well.When running audacious from terminal and trying to open up an mp3 file I get this message:"madplug: open_audio failed: XMMS reverse compatibility output plugin."
Every where I look online, people are posting ridiculous non-working ways to upgrade their system from one release to another--they do not work for me and I need a definite expert reply. I am working with a fresh install of Debian Lenny/Stable and wish to upgrade to the frozen Squeeze distribution. Supplementing the word "squeeze" in place of "lenny" in my sources.list file does not work and believe this to be an inappropriate way of upgrading. I have tried upgrading apt, dpkg, and aptitude before beginning the upgrade process, cleaning dpkg cache, rebooting, etc.
After updating the above packages I tried all methods of upgrading: safe-upgrade, full-upgrade, and dist-upgrade. All produce dependency problems and try to remove the gnome-desktop package or upgrade everything else except gnome-desktop. (Other packages are also affected, gnome-desktop is the most important in this instance). As I understand it, when upgrading you can comment out the volatile repositories as well as the security updates, is this correct?--either way I have tried countless combination's off commenting/uncommenting to try to get the needed results. I do not want use sid repos or reinstall.
I did a 'netinst' today and de-selected every available option when I got to the 'software selection' screen (even 'Standard System & 'Desktop Environment') however after a fresh install, I noticed what seemed to me like useless / unnecessary system user accounts:
- news - games - www-data (obviously no Apache is installed)
I was wondering if there was a way to avoid this from a minimal install?
I'll start a fresh installation of a debian stable server and I would like to use LVM on this. So, I started to read lots of documents about LVM and found different flavors on partitioning with it. I'm thinking in a partition schema which might use LVM for those mount points that tends to grow in time, for instance:
I haven't used Debian in 1 year or so and would like to know if there is any possible way to do a fresh installation of Debian Lenny or Squeeze (either or) and not install Exim? I get to the package selection section of the Debian Installer and I de-select "Desktop Environment" & "Standard System" so nothing is selected and it still be default installs Exim. Is there a way to omit this from the install?
how to install Dropbox for Debian Squeeze from source.Please read everything before you begin. I prepared it as I installed Dropbox for my own system. Please Note: I use sudo, you may have to use root or 'su' from the command line. If you don't know the difference between sudo and su, then you shouldn't try this until you know. At the time I did this, the lastest dropbox version was 0.6.7.
I installed Debian Squeeze (choosing no when prompted to add support for non-free or contrib sources) and noticed that the fan of my Nvidia 9600 GT video card is constantly running at full speed. I thought this meant that the default driver is not properly working. I would like to configure my system so that the video card fan is not being pushed so hard.
I downloaded the latest Nvidia (propietary) driver, stopped gdm3, and ran the driver installer. The installer failed because it said the Nouveau kernel driver was currently in use and incompatible with the Nvidia driver. I chose not to allow the installer to update my modprobe configuration directory. nvidia-installer log file '/var/log/nvidia-installer.log'
It looks at though the xorg.conf.new file has the nv driver in use, but the Nvidia installer says the Nouveau driver is being used. I ran a line in terminal (i forget the exact line) to test the xorg.conf.new file in the /root/ directory. The result was No Screens Found.
Next, I tried to remove the xserver-xorg-video-nouveau package using aptitude, but it displayed a message indicating that xserver-xorg-video-all depends on it. I decided not to remove the xserver-xorg-nouveau package. Any suggestions on how to proceed in order to configure X with a free driver (nv, vesa, or nouveau) so that the video card is handled properly?
When I use the command df -h on one of our debian linux machines I get back that I have 0 space left on /dev/md0/. I tried to find out where all 60G of space was being used but am unable to find it. Could this reading be wrong? Also, where could this space be being used?
When I run an iptables command to add a rule and reboot the new configuration is lost even after I have run the iptables-save command. I can't work out where the iptables config file is/should be stored so I could try editing the file with vi.
Ive opensuse and windows on my laptop. I hardly use windows anymore but I would like to keep it. Im getting warning messages saying that I only have about 75 MB left on linux. Windows has lots of space available (especially the "d" partition which I use for storing stuff in like music and video) but I do not know how to "claim" that partition for for Suse.
I just installed Squeeze on a 4 disk system, each disk set up identically with 4 partitions, with the last partition of each disk used for a raid 5 array. I used the squeeze installer, and chose the 'manual' partition option for this setup.
After installation, fdisk reports the ending cylinder number of each of the 4 disks as one more than the total number of cylinders for the disk. I've never seen this before. In the past when I've used fdisk to manually partition disks, the final cylinder number was always equal to the total number of cylinders.
The disk has 60801 cylinders, and the 'End" cylinder number for /dev/sdd4 is reported as 60802. I would have expected it to be 60801. Is this a bug or problem? It's working OK, but I don't know if it will cause instability in the future.
I'm starting to push the limit of my /home directory. My machine is Linux/Windows dual-boot. I need to keep Windows as the machine is not "officially" mine, and so might need to go back at some point to a Windows user. All my normal Windows access is via VirtualBox. I have made my Windows partitions as small as possible, and now have an empty D partition as follows:
It's the D* partition that I would like to add to my home directory. Is there an easy way of doing this, or am I looking at a complete re-install of openSUSE?
I installed Ubuntu 10.10 with wubi and i have been enjoying my Ubuntu experience a lot. I installed quite a bit of programs and spent a couple hours customizing my machine. The problem is im running out of disc space. Any ideas on how i can add more space. I have gparted but i dont know where to move the free space to because wubi installed it.
I am currently running 32 bit ubuntu in my PC with 2.5 GB RAM, Intel Pentium Dual Core inside. I am coming to debian soon. I will be installing 64 bit squeeze. Now I have 3 GB of swap space. I do satellite image processing. Therefore what is the recommended swap space for me with the kind of work I do. RAM is in very small amount but as of now I have to stay with it.
Also I am interested to know would KDE be an overkill for my machine. Will I run short of memory when I start image processing?
I have a set of vm's with stable, testing, and sid to keep track of how things are going. When I did an apt-get dist-upgrade with squeeze last week, things seemed to OK (350 package updates) until the end. It didn't seem to like and / or was confused by a kernel dependency.
I am not too concerned yet. Because these are in vm's, I do a snapshot before any significant change. I can futz around with impunity because I have that backup.
I re-booted, and tried the apt-get dist-upgrade again with same results. I think I also tried apt-get -f install.
So I reverted to the snapshot, and will simply try again in the future. I recall that with lenny as testing, the font-desktop was really screwed up for about a period of 6 weeks.
However, just in case someone else runs into this:
1) a re-boot worked, but the failure of apt-get made me nervous enough to revert.
2) waiting for corrections has seemed to work in the past (with a single exception with a 4-disk SCSI software RAID10 update that failed to re-boot lenny successfully after what seemed to be a minor update -- that was on a real system, not a vm. I haven't gotten back to look at that.)
I've never had any problems before,but I just did a fresh install of 10.04.1 on a brand new drive yesterday. I noticed this morning that I have no sound drivers(under the hardware tab of sound preferences, there is nothing listed). I found a thread that had this line to run:
Code: cat /proc/asound/card0/codec#* | grep Codec And I got: Code: Codec: Realtek ALC888 Not sure what to do now though.
I recently just installed Squeeze on an ia64 system and was having some troubles with running VNC.I get the following error, more specifically for some reason I get a malloc - memory corruption error:
Xtightvnc(9165): unaligned access to 0x60000000001ea06c, ip=0x4000000000268280 Xtightvnc(9165): unaligned access to 0x60000000001ea074, ip=0x4000000000268280 Xtightvnc(9165): unaligned access to 0x60000000001ea07c, ip=0x4000000000268280 Xtightvnc(9165): unaligned access to 0x60000000001ea084, ip=0x4000000000268280
After display all the code above, it just stops. The port 5901 is still closed - if it runs properly, would it open automatically?Is there something that is incompatible? Or am I missing some system configuration component?
I just did a regular install of debian lenny on a stand-alone machine. Now I want to add some new mp3-software. Debian doesn't like it if I install as root. A regular gets other negative results:
wlff@debian:~/My_Apps/mpg321-0.2.12-1$ ./configure checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c checking whether build environment is sane... yes checking for gawk... no checking for mawk... mawk checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... no checking for gawk...

I did find the GNU-compiler in /usr/lib/gcc. So what could be wrong with gcc, and what about gawk, cc and cl?
