I want to install a email server so my domain handles it's on email. I understand I need a dns server first. I down loaded dbndns but can not even figure out how to start it. does anyone know how to get this set up. Or where the setup files is for this.

I am using Jessie with XFCE and I tried to write a service which executes a script to change my wallpaper. When I try to start the service with systemctl start wallpaper.service it fails and I get the outout below from systemctl status wallpaper.service
I don't think it to be a permissions issue, they are -rw- r-- r--
This service is called by a timer that goes off daily. Below is wallpaper.service
My system goes through slow periods where it just crawls and others where it's fine, but I'm wondering which service settings are OK to just shut off to give me a bit more oomph when I boot up.The others I'm pretty OK with like spam assassin, dictionary server and so on, but some of the others i wonder if they only serve to slow things down..Also..I live in a very dusty environment and I KNOW the fans and other parts get caked with dust and it wouldn't surprise me if the dust got so bad it just stops the fans completely so once in a while I use my air compressor to blow the crud out and I usually get covered myself, but how safe is using the compressor? It's not the type that typically fills up with condensed water droplets so that isn't a super critical issue..It's a small 1 hp deal, elect drive and so on.. Safe enough? It's all I have and/or can afford..
I just want to see if anyone else is having problems connecting to networks, wifi or wired. For some reason, I can see both wired and wireless networks available but when I try to connect, it times out. I updated a couple of days ago and suddenly started having problems today. Anyone else having the same problem?I have only tried the router and repeater I have to connect to. My other computers are working just fine. One is actually running as a Debian server with no GUI (which I do not update as often). The other is a Mac.
I have just bought a DVB-T usb dongle to watch some TV. The software I'm using is vdr, which has to be started through the /etc/init.d/vdr service. I have created a udev script that executes the service on device insertion. It works nicely, however now when I boot up the computer it takes ages to get to desktop. I believe it is because of the WAIT_FOR part. But without this part, the service starts too soon because the usb dongle has been inserted but the firmware has not finished loading. Can someone point out an alternative way to do it? The script is here [URL].
I'm building a Debian based router, I want to add to this router a mail service function. I don't want mail to be sent outside of the network, what I want is the ability for services to send mail to the Debian server and for me to then pick them up from this server via pop3 into my normal mail application. Given I'm not looking for mail to be sent outside of the network and its strictly for services to log notifications via. What of the various mail applications should I setup? i.e. just looking for SMTP + POP3 internally.
I am using debian squeeze server with asterisk 1.6 installed and configured.my problem is non root users need to access the server using ssh and restart asterisk server after making changes in asterisk configuration files.As of now i am giving root username/password for this process (i know it is not at all a good idea) .now how can i create a username and configure it which can only access and modify asterisk configuration files and restart asterisk server without any other privileges.
I've got the F13 LiveCD that I was able to boot and use using the "nomodeset" boot option. From the desktop I'm trying to perform an Install to Hard Drive. I've read the Install from LiveCD post regarding the creation of a /boot partition and a / root partition. I've tried creating them without the LVM group and with. But every time I appempt to install I get...
An error occurred mounting device proc as /proc: mount failed: (9, None). This is a fatal error and the install cannot continue.
Hardware is a Sager 8887 (P4, 3.06HT, 60GB HDD, Radeon 9000 graphics adapter)
I'm not really sure what the problem is here, but sshd does seem to start on system boot. tty1 does list "OpenBSD Secure Shell server" at least. Also, # service --status-all; indicates that sshd is running, but if I try and actually ssh into my box, I get a "Connection refused" response.
I am, however able to restart the service manually and everything magically works again. Odd...?
I want to know what's going on here. I'm used to find files in my Debian box usingfind / -type f -print0 | xargs -0 grep -l "foo"but it's been a while since this type of search simply stops at the /proc/kcore directory. I know it has something to do with memory. Is this normal?
I am trying to edit the file shmmax in proc/sys/kernel/. I want to increase the value. I am using vim to edit it. But when I try to write and close the file I get the following error: "shmmax" E667: Fsync failed Press ENTER or type command to continue
Since F12 I've big troubles with my left shift key.
I've Fedora running on 3 hosts. 2 desktops and 1 laptop. Only on one of the desktops I've these troubles.
If I press the left shift key sometimes shift gets locked. If it's locked, no key can unlock it. Not the left, not the right shift, nor any other key... and I tried them all meanwhile;-)
It's a real shift lock, not a caps lock. After a (random?) time it releases itself without any user interaction. Releasetime varies between 1 and many seconds.
So, only waiting helps. I already followed the wiki entries for debugging keyboard (input-dev) issues. Watching the output of evtest shows exactly the same output for the usual case and the lock case. They both look like this... code...
I am trying to switch over my NAS from Win7 x64 to Debian 8.x Jessie. I have run into a few issues with the power management. When Idle my NAS should be consuming 25W, however it was consuming much more. The more hard disks I mounted, the higher the wattage.
I have followed a few tutorials but that has only been a partial succes.
Code: Select all¬†# hdparm -C /dev/sd[b-y]
/dev/sdb: ¬†drive state is:¬† active/idle
/dev/sdc: ¬†drive state is:¬† active/idle
/dev/sdd: ¬†drive state is:¬† standby
/dev/sde: ¬†drive state is:¬† active/idle
/dev/sdf: ¬†drive state is:¬† standby
All the drives can spindown but they are not doing that now that they are mounted.
Now there are two suggestions I found but both I was unable to implement.
The first suggestion was to mount using "noatime". However I do not know how to rewrite fstab because I am using ntfs for now (at least untill I get it working).
Code: Select all# /etc/fstab: static file system information. # # Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a # device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices # that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5). # # /dev/mapper/bugattidebian--vg-root / ext4 errors=remount-ro 0 1
Not sure where to add the noatime there...
Also I am using samba on all those drives. This guide suggested a code change but the example does not line up with my configuration script.
Recently switched from ubuntu to Deb Squeeze. I'm having trouble keeping apps on my panel. I'll add an app, and after reboot (sometimes a couple) something or all are missing. If I try to add say Chrome back to it, I'll then have two of them. I've googled and LQ'd around to see up there a way to update the Gnome menus, which I found a few but nothing works
I'm trying to install OpenSuse 11.2 from iso image without burning it in a DVD.. because I don't have a CD or DVD drive.I'm using Windows Vista.firstly I mounted the dvd image .. but thought that was wrong because when rebooting instillation won't find the image.. is that true?so, I extracted it and I opened openSUSE11_2_ LOCAL.exe. and then reboot.. got two choices (Vista or install OpenSuse) and selected install OpenSuse but my screen went "out of range" !!
I'm trying to set up a mini grid of linux boxes, but am quite new to setting linux up.I've installed fedora 13 on one and would like to be able to SSH in to it. All boxes are within a university network (under a proxy if that makes any difference?).I can mount a shared disc easily enough, and SSH out to other computers (that I didn't set up myself),I've tried following a few threads, temporarily taking down firewalls, disabling SELinux, messing around with iptables but can't seem to manage it.
I love using wheezy but i keep having to take my computer downstairs to hook it up to router through ethernet, i need it to connect through wifi and stay connected.
heres my problem, if i use live image and connect to network its fine but during installation process it gets to the network configuration, it will keep disconnecting at dhcp and if i try and continue it gives me the error packages broken due to it not staying connected.
MY WIFI CARD IS A TP-LINK WDN 4800
if i try and just do a net install then it doesnt show my wifi network.
it uses in both cases ar93xx atheros driver for installing, i just need to know how i can try and keep a stable connection over wifi so it can install over wifi so i dont have to keep taking pc downstairs to install it.
i done something that stopped me being able to login into wheezy i was left at black screen with blinking command line, i have reverted to mint debian until i can get a stable connection over wifi to install wheezy again.
I posted this here because I think Linux Mint is based off of Debian, am I wrong? Anyhow I installed mint to a seperate partition next to windows on my computer. I had my external unplugged at the time... It was actually plugged in at my neighbors. They where watching a movie I had on it; anyhow I plugged it back in went to bed woke up and it took out its own partition on the external.
I am getting crazy with my system.(I got the machine from previous guy working on it with XP, I installed myself linux, but with zero experience, 2 years ago).starting point yesterday:3 HDs in raid, SUSE 10.3 x64 installed on sdc1 with problems, XP on sda, SUSE 10.2 x32 on sda as well:
How do I configure my modem without setting a service provider? When I try to configure my modem I can't get past the page for setting my internet provider. I have DSL and only use a modem for faxing. I'm running SUSE 11.3 32bit with KDE 4.5.2 and the modem is a BCM4212.
