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.

Networking :: "wireless Repeater" - Plug-in A Linksys USB Stick Doesn't Work

Mar 13, 2010

I have a DSL modem with four ports and a built-in wireless router downstairs. It works great: I have wired Ethernet for my PCs downstairs (all plugged in directly to the DSL modem); my son has great wireless access upstairs (using the built-in wireless in his laptop). PROBLEM: I want to add another, desktop, PC upstairs. I've been trying to use wireless, with a plug-in a Linksys USB stick. It doesn't work worth crap.

I'm considering a) getting another phone jack upstairs, and moving my DSL modem there, or b) stringing some CAT-5 cable from the modem downstairs to the PC upstairs. Putting a wireless PCI card in my upstairs desktop PC might also solve the problem, but the PC only has one PCI slot, and I'd rather keep it free, if at all possible.

QUESTION: Is there any kind of "wireless repeater", where I can a) get wireless access from my DSL modem/wireless base station downstairs, and b) give me some spare Ethernet ports, so I can plug in desktop PC (so the PC can have a wired Ethernet connection)? POSSIBLE SOLUTION: I have an old Linksys WRT54G router that I'm not using. Q: Is there any way to configure it for this purpose? Q: Would it be possible to use it for this purpose if I installed OpenWRT?

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 :: 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
# devfs or traditional non-devfs format. For example, to use the first disk

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 :: 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 :: 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 :: Make MenuConfig Cannot Find Makefile

Trying to build a driver for a TV tuner card. When I enter 'make menuconfig', I get this error:

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.

Asus N56VZ, Debian stretch.

Debian Configuration :: Make Mailboxes For Each Virtual Host On Server?

Mar 1, 2010

I'm using Debian 5 with Exim 4 on my VPS. My purpose is to make mailboxes for each virtual host on my server. What do I have: 1. Exim is set correctly - receiving mail from [URL]... is successfull. 2. Mail for [URL]... is delivered, and the mail for [URL]... too. But [URL]... is the site written to /etc/hosts (it's localhost), and [URL]... is virtual host. But mail from both boxes writes to /var/mail/mail. Now what do I need: 1. Make mail for [URL]... store in [URL].... and mail for [URL].. store in www/Maildir. 2. Make mailboxes like [URL].... to receive mail by Thunderbird. 3. Set passwords for [URL]... and [URL]... (I don't want to enter my system user/root passwords).

Debian Configuration :: Make Shared Directory Safe And Access Dir From VPN

Apr 4, 2010

I am planning to build a server in future. That will be a computer with GNU. It will be a router and file server. It will get the VPN-Internet and share it with all the PCs connected to LAN. There will be Samba for file sharing. And I'm thinking that if I just share some directory on that server with Samba, it will be possible to get access to that dir from VPN. So it's not very safe to do that. Is it possible to prevent access to Samba dir from VPN connection?

Debian Configuration :: Make Localmodconfig Failing To Function Properly?

Aug 23, 2010

The announcement of several new make scripts in the 2.6.32 release notes is very exciting.1.8. Easy local kernel configuration.Most people uses the kernel shipped by distros - and that's good. But some people like to compile their own kernels from kernel.org, or maybe they like following the Linux development and want to try it. Configuring your own kernel, however, has become a very difficult and tedious task - there're too many options, and some times userspace software will stop working if you don't enable some key option. You can use a standard distro .config file, but it takes too many time to compile all the options it enables.

To make easier the process of configuration, a new build target has been added: make localmodconfig. It runs "lsmod" to find all the modules loaded on the current running system. It will read all the Makefiles to map which CONFIG enables a module. It will read the Kconfig files to find the dependencies and selects that may be needed to support a CONFIG. Finally, it reads the .config file and removes any module "=m" that is not needed to enable the currently loaded modules. With this tool, you can strip a distro .config of all the unuseful drivers that are not needed in our machine, and it will take much less time to build the kernel. There's an additional "make localyesconfig" target, in case you don't want to use modules and/or initrds.

Debian Configuration :: Make A Minor Change To One Of The Drivers In 2.6.38 (-sid) Kernel?

Apr 8, 2011

I need to make a minor change to one of the drivers in my 2.6.38 (-sid) kernel. However, I am wondering how best to go about it. Many of the guides on the internet presume one will be using a vanilla source tree and plan on manual configuration.

I am looking for the easiest means of accomplishing a simple recompilation of what I currently have -- with the same configuration and everything else. On Gentoo I usually just do a zcat /proc/config.gz > .config

However am unsure if this is the, correct, Debian way of doing things.

Debian Configuration :: Make Init.d Script That Asks For User Input?

Jul 30, 2011

I'm trying to make a script that loads at boot and asks for user input before doing it's stuff. So I created a script in /etc/init.d/ following the example given there (skeleton file) and used update-rc.d to make it load before GDM.

But when my script requests user input, init doesn't stop, and goes on loading other services and loads GDM. I have to CTRL+F1 to get to my script. I want my script to pause the init system till it ends doing it's stuff and the the other services can go on loading.

I tried
#X-interactive: true to no avail.

Debian Configuration :: Wireless Does Not Reconnect

Oct 26, 2015

I have done a clean install of debian 8.2 (jessie) on a new PC. I am working through some of the issues that were not correctly installed. One of them is the wireless network. On startup, I have a wireless connection. At some point within the first 5-25 minutes of being logged in and doing computer stuff (there is no known action that leads to the reaction), the wireless disconnects from the network and will not reconnect. The network-manager-gnome shows three horizontal dots; the system settings> network shows all of the available networks, the strength of their signal, and the "connecting" circle spins. This behavior occurs with both WPA and insecure networks.

I have followed the guidelines for Debian>WiFi>HowToUse (https://wiki.debian.org/WiFi/HowToUse). Nothing appears amiss when following the Network-Manager>Gnome portion of the instructions. I was going to try the alternate WICD program, but one has to uninstall network-manager to use wicd and synaptic also wants to remove something called "gnome", too-- uninstalling a package with that name makes me uneasy. I have noticed that the installed versions of network-manager (0.9.10.0-7) and network-manager-gnome (0.9.10.0-2) don't exactly agree, but I doubt that that is significant.
