VirtualBox is awesome tool for experiment and learning Linux.On the Linux guest OS, I installed standard system without Xorg.i expected it remove all the packages that come along with gnome-terminal previously.Only gnome-terminal was removed, 750kB free space. Now the system have 149MB packages as waste data IMHO.It doesn't look right to me.

I have just installed Debian Lenny and was trying to upgrade the installed packages from the packages.debian.org site. when i asked synaptic to add the downloaded packages the would not appear, but when i checked the .xsessions file there are entries saying that the packages were being ingnored because they were either different versions, the MD5 did not match or even "can't find pkg". i have to use the local library to download the packages because i dont have an internet connection at home.

Ubuntu :: Make A Custom Debian Package Prompt For A Restart After Installation

Jun 29, 2011

I am wondering how to add a need to restart notification in a Debian package, so upon installation, it'd pop up something to tell the user to restart the computer for changes to take effect. Perhaps something like what happens with some packages through the update-manager when it prompts the user to restart for the changes to take effect.

Is there any way to do that? Perhaps adding something at the end of a "postinst" file?

Thinking about it, I could just add something like this at the end of the "postinst" file:

Code:
notify-send -t 86400000 -i /usr/share/icons/gnome/32x32/status/info.png "Please restart the computer for all changes to take effect."

It'd work, but not as well. For instance, if the person isn't by their computer at the time.

Another option could be using a Zenity dialog box. That might work. Though, if done, wouldn't a yes/no question box keep the actual package from technically finishing until the user would select yes/no to restart?

Debian Configuration :: Systemd Custom Service

Aug 4, 2015

On macbook air 6.2, i've installed a Debian jessie mate DE, dual boot using refind. I'm currently fine-tuning it. I've made a script following powertop advice:

Code: Select all[newb@debian /etc/systemd/system]$ cat mba_kb_sp.sh
#!/bin/sh
echo 'auto' > '/sys/bus/usb/devices/1-3.1/power/control';
echo 'auto' > '/sys/bus/usb/devices/1-3.2/power/control';
echo 'auto' > '/sys/bus/usb/devices/1-5/power/control';
exit 0

[Code] ....

All seems to work fine, however when i check the sys file it didn't change. But I can start manually the systemd service and, this time, it works.

Debian Configuration :: Creating A Custom Live CD

Feb 24, 2016

I'd like to create my own custom Debian live CD — the idea being to have my own rescue CD with my favorite Debian tools installed. I read about bootcd and was going to give that a try, after creating the ideal system in a qemu virtual machine.

How much exactly can you install on a system so that bootcd can still fit it on a CD? I'm presuming there is some kind of compression involved. When I tried to create my VM, I coudln't get Jessie + LXDE to install onto a 2GB virtual drive (net install) so naturally I'm wondering what I'm going to be able to put on a 700MB CD.

Debian Configuration :: Install Custom Kernel Image

Mar 11, 2016

I've a problem running jessie on a XEN supervisor; my running kernel and the installed kernel image differ, because the host system forces the kernel at boot time. Current loaded kernel is

Code:
Select all$ uname -r
3.18.12

But I'm not able to install this version from the standard repository.

Code:
Select all# apt-cache search linux-image
linux-headers-3.16.0-4-amd64 - Header-Dateien für Linux 3.16.0-4-amd64
linux-image-3.16.0-4-amd64 - Linux 3.16 für 64-Bit-PCs
linux-image-3.16.0-4-amd64-dbg - Debugging symbols for Linux 3.16.0-4-amd64
linux-image-amd64 - Linux for 64-bit PCs (meta-package)
linux-image-amd64-dbg - Debugging symbols for Linux amd64 configuration (meta-package)
nvidia-kernel-3.16.0-4-amd64 - NVIDIA binary kernel module for Linux 3.16.0-4-amd64
linux-image-2.6.32-5-xen-amd64 - Linux 2.6.32 for 64-bit PCs, Xen dom0 support

Now I'm facing issues loading kernel modules for iptables, because the module path does not exist. Is there an easy way to install a proper kernel image from the standard repositories?

Debian Configuration :: Apt Sources.list Ssh:// With Custom Port?

Sep 26, 2010

I've setup my own repository which I want to use SSH as the protocol. I managed to get everything working with an SSH key using port 22. Now, I would like to change the SSH port. I've already changed it on the SSH/repo server. Now I can't figure out how to change apt to use a custom port on the client computer.

My sources.list file line which worked over port 22: deb ssh://user@1.1.1.1/home/user/repo lenny main contrib non-free I've tried: deb ssh://user@1.1.1.1:12345/home/user/repo lenny main contrib non-free and it fails and actually says "failed connecting to port 22"

Can this be done? I've searched google for hours and I getting nothing but unrelated data. I've read the man pages. The man page for apt.conf specified that you can set the port this way for HTTP, but doesn't mention anything about ssh ports.

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

[code]....

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!...it 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 :: Compile Custom Kernel Without Debugging Symbols

Aug 3, 2010

I've compiled 2.6.35 for my eeepc, but I have noticed that resulting .deb file is 30mb large. After investigating i saw that modules (and maybe kernel) are compiled with debugging symbols enabled.I've checked my lenny router and modules there are without debugging symbols.So stock 2.6.26 from lenny comes without debugging symbols and linux-image .deb file is around 20mb.Stock 2.6.32-5-686 from squeeze comes with debugging symbols enabled - linux-image .deb here is 26mb. (I have used 2.6.32's .config file to build my kernel, then i did make oldconfig.)I guess this is what increase my kernel size, but how to disable it?Or maybe enable stripping of debugging symbols.

Debian Configuration :: Custom Multiple - Boot Troubleshooting-System?

Aug 16, 2010

I want to build a custom system and I need your opinions. I have an old laptop which I want to configure as a system for troubleshooting purpose, my idea is to have multi-boot system with multiple root file systems, e.g. one root file system has only BIND to work as DNS server, another root file system has only Samba, etc., and I can choose which system to boot into from grub, or a custom menu after booting grub.

I thought of setting multiple partitions and install a full system on each one, but I thought that there might be a better way to do this, I'd like to hear your opinions.

Debian Configuration :: Slow Custom Kernel Build Amd64

Aug 17, 2011

I used make-kpkg to build the 3.0.0 source debian wheezy on a dual 3.4GHz Xeon/L1-16k/L2-1mb/800Mhz bus with 4GB PC2-3200 ECC ram and Ultra 320 SCSI, using CONCURRENCY_LEVEL=4 (2 hyperthreading cpus=4 cores). The build was slower than molasses in January! Top reported cpu usage total between 10% and 25%. Why won't the build use the amount of machine it has available. One footnote: I wasn't using swap space. It literally took over an hour to build the deb kernel package.

My notebook from 2003 is at least three times faster building the 3.0.0 debian kernel source. Is it possible that this might cause improvement: make -j4 KDEB_PKGVERSION=version deb-pkg

over

CONCURRENCY_LEVEL=4 make-kpkg --initrd --revision=123x kernel_image?

Could amd64 vs. i386 have some influence? Could the small processor caches on the XEON cpus have an effect. The 64-bit machine absolutely flies doing everything else. I'm miffed! I've used debian since woody, although I am not an expert, but I'm no slouch!

Debian Configuration :: Change The Driver File And Compile Custom Kernel

May 3, 2011

When I only change a driver file manually, for example /newkernel/linux-source-.6.32/drivers/gpu/drm/i915_drv.h, do I need to run "make config" or similar like "make menuconfig" or can I just skip? I mean these steps:

1.) apt-get install linux-source-2.6.32
2.) mkdir ~/newkernel/
3.) cp /usr/src/linux-source-2.6.32.tar.bz2 ~/newkernel/
4.) cd /newkernel/
5.) tar xjf linux-source-2.6.32.tar.bz2
6.) cd linux-source-2.6.32
7.) cp /boot/config-$(uname -r) ./.config yes "" | make oldconfig
8.) change the driver file /newkernel/linux-source-2.6.32/drivers/gpu/drm/i915_drv.h manually
8.) make-kpkg clean
9.) make-kpkg --rootcmd fakeroot --initrd --revision=custom.001 kernel_image kernel_headers
10.) dpkg -i *.deb

Is this way OK or do I miss something?

Debian :: Package Search Site And Stable, Sid, And Experimental All Have Packages For Wine

Aug 21, 2011

At first I thought it might be a free software thing but I went on the debian package search site and stable, sid, and experimental all have packages for wine. Why is there none for wheezy? Is it a temporary dependency thing or...? I've googled this but there has been no kind of answer anywhere. Right now I'm using the frickelplatz apotsid repository as they package the most recent version of wine but if I could use a standard debian repository I would.

Debian Configuration :: All Packages Stable Except Deluge?

May 25, 2011

I am trying to keep a stable system (after a date with the unstable version which broke everything ) but a package (namely deluge) is horribly out-of-date. It is better in the unstable packages.I read the official documentation with the preferences file, pinning and the rest of the apt zoo but after a few tests I am still there with my old deluge in my stable environment.(in reality I managed to upgrade deluge by swapping the sources.list file with one with only the unstable repositories -- but this is not a particularly clever approach)I would be very grateful if someone could give me the right content for the preferences file which would allow to keep the system at stable level, except for the deluge package which should be updated to the newest, bleeding edge version.
