Debian Configuration :: Squeeze System Won't Boot Headless

Apr 11, 2011

I've installed 6.0.1a on my xi3 box [URL] and it works great. However when I remove the monitor and keyboard it doesn't boot (I don't know how far it gets, there is no monitor...). I did not install, and do not want, any kind of GUI interface, command line only. This is going in a closet as a solid state rsync backup repo. I have another small system (not this exact one) running Lenny that runs just fine headless - is this some kind of Squeeze regression? Is there any way I can get this running headless (I can't run Lenny on this box because I don't think the Marvell GbE driver is there or is working in Lenny.

Debian Configuration :: Boot Login As Root In Squeeze?

Feb 12, 2011

Before I ask I know what I'm asking is not recommended.

On Lenny It was possible to change the boot login to permit logins as root

I can't find how to do that since I installed Squeeze.

Debian Configuration :: 100% CPU On Headless Server?

Jun 18, 2011

I have a strange problem. I have set up a server to run without a keyboard, mouse, or video. If I boot it connected to a monitor, there is no issue. However, if I boot it without a monitor attached, the CPU just runs at 100%. Below is a shot of my HTOP from the machine: The weird part is that if you sort the processes by CPU%, they don't actually total 100%. I was trying to see what was pushing the CPU so high, but most of the time the running processes only total between 5 and 20%. Has anyone else seen the problem? Any idea what's happening? I'm worried that if I leave it running like that, the processor could burn up. My temporary work around is to boot it up with a monitor, then disconnect the monitor, but that's really inconvenient.

Debian Configuration :: Can't Boot Xen/dom0 In Squeeze With 2.6.32 Pvops Kernel?

Aug 10, 2010

I've got a fresh install of Squeeze on a 32bit host and I have been unable to boot into XEN/dom0.The Xen Kernel is "linux-image-2.6.32-5-xen-686" (pvops) and Hypervisor is xen-hypervisor-4.0-i386.The system default installed with grub2.It boots quite happily in normal mode, using the above Kernel, but just reboots itself if I try run it as Xen/dom0. (reboots within a second of pressing <enter> ... there is no messages displayed on the screen that I have noticed)The relevant menu (generated by /etc/grub.d/20_linux_xen) entry for running Xen is as below;

Debian Configuration :: Realtek 8192SE - Squeeze Freezes At Boot

Nov 25, 2010

I've run into an issue that I'm not sure how to address. I'm running Squeeze and upgraded my system this morning.

The packages upgraded were:

About 10 seconds after upgrading, the system froze completely and I had to do a hard restart. The system froze again 10 seconds after the bash login prompt was displayed (I'm not using a display manager) after reboot. The source of the problem appears to be my Realtek 8192SE wireless driver. I was able to boot the kernel in recovery mode and uninstall it, which has fixed the issue. Rebuilding the driver causes the problem again.

I suspect that something to do with the sysv and init packages affected the driver in this way, but I've no idea where to start in trying to fix this. I can't imagine this is a fault of the Realtek driver as it worked just fine up until this point.

Debian Configuration :: Converting From Desktop / GUI To Headless Server

Mar 25, 2016

I set up my Debian box as a HTPC but am moving it to my closet and using it as a NAS now, so I want to make it headless since there won't be a monitor connected to it.What's the cleanest way to nuke the desktop environment? 2nd to reinstalling, that is (although that may not be a bad option since may home directory is in another partition).

Debian Installation :: Install Squeeze On Triple-boot System?

Oct 28, 2010

'rolling' release as redoing install /upgrade every 6 months is getting 'old' My machine is triple boot

Hard drive is 320 GB
Windows 7 - 167 GB
Ubuntu - Maverick - 73 GB
Ubuntu - Natty - testing version - 65 GB

I do not want to screw up my 'grub' as it's been trashed a couple of times recently and had to re-install everything, which went great with install setting up partitions. I am not sure where 'grub' is installed to. I did install Windows 7 first then let installer split hard drive in half to put Ubuntu on then while installing my second Ubuntu, I let installer split the Ubuntu partition in half, hence the 167 GB Windows and the 2 smaller partitions for Ubuntu.I was thinking to maybe let Debian install over my Maverick install. Would that work and not mess up my Grub and cause me to not be able to boot and have to fix the drama?

Debian Configuration :: KDM "failure" On Boot - Squeeze

May 26, 2010

Hardware at issue is an nVidia GeForce 9600 GT. Issue occurs regardless whether the driver is downloaded and installed from nVidia, or installed via Synaptic courtesy of the new dkms package in the repositories.

It should also be noted that the issue only arose after an update today, as follows:

I do not believe it is related to the last three items in that list. Because everything worked perfectly before todays update, it would appear that one of those other updates is causing KDM and nVidia to not want to co-operate with each other.I also notice that, new to the boot sequence, the system is booting with "concurrency" - never seen that scroll by before - which may have something to do with it too.

OK, what happens. KDM "fails" to start when booting the computer. Symptoms : At the appropriate spot in the boot sequence, the screen goes black (as usual), but then, instead of the cycling cursor followed by the logon screen, the nVidia logo appears, and after about 7 or 8 seconds, the screen goes black for about a second, then drops me back at the console. From there, I can log in as root.

Now, the thing is, KDM is actually running, but using <control> <alt> <F7> only brings me to a blank black screen. By issuing the command /etc/init.d/kdm restart, I come up to a normal logon and can proceed as usual. As well, if I delete xorg.conf, system boots OK.

Looking at the system log, we find :

And then some way past that we get :

Should mention that was using the latest stable driver from nVidia (195.36.24), but in the hope that maybe something in the latest beta may solve the issue, installed that, but the answer is nope And yes, completely uninstalled the nVidia drivers between each test of the nVidia driver, the same driver in the repositories and the latest beta driver, before anyone mentions.

Debian Configuration :: Squeeze D-u - Kernel Configuration Skipped

Jul 6, 2010

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.)

Debian Configuration :: Lenny Can't Boot After Updating The System

Feb 5, 2011

I have always used apt-get to update the system. Yesterday, I was doing some tests and one of them was to try to update the system using the aptitude command, instead. I ran aptitude update and then aptitude safe-ugrade. I thought that wouldn't be a problem, but I was wrong. This morning I found the computer just can't boot.

I get this message:

I have Squeeze in another partition on that computer. I can access the system through the terminal (the graphic is screwed). Is it possible to try my Lenny from this partition? If not, I also have a live cd for Squeeze. Right now I'm on another computer.

Debian Configuration :: System Does Filesystem Check On Every Boot After Upgrade

Jul 5, 2015

A few days ago I upgraded my debian sid system, and since then systemd does a filesystem check on every boot which takes over two minutes, disobeying the existing settings I had. How can I set systemd to do a filesystem check only once every a set number of mounts, like I had set up before the upgrade?

Debian Configuration :: System Won't Boot Properly After Crash During Upgrade

Feb 7, 2016

I am on debian jessie. I ran "apt-get update && apt-get upgrade" and midway through the upgrade my computer suddenly rebooted.

I wasn't paying close attention to the upgrade process so I didnt see if there was any error messages right before the reboot. The laptop was plugged in, fully charged and I've never had issues with overheating.

When I boot now I get to a shell with a message that says:

Code: Select allWelcome to emergency mode. After logging in type "journalctl -xb" to view system logs, "systemctl reboot" to reboot, "systemctl default" to try again to boot into default mode.

If I try "systemctl default" there's a message that simply says "Hangup", nothing else happens.

Looking through "journalctl -xb" I see this:

Code: Select allFailed to insert module 'autofs4'
Failed to open /dev/autofs: No such file or directory
Failed to initialize automounter: No such file or directory
Failed to set up automount Arbitrary Executable File Formats File System Automount Point.
Failed to start Load Kernel Modules.
If I retry "apt-get upgrade" it says:
Code: Select alldpkg was interrupted, you must maually run dpkg --configure -a to correct the problem
If I run "dpkg --configure -a" stops at the package cups-browsed with message saying "Hangup"

Output of a few commands I saw in another forum thread:

$ lsmod
Code: Select allModule                  Size  Used by
ext4                  473802  1
crc16                  12343  1 ext4
mbcache                17171  1 ext4
jbd2                   82522  1 ext4

[Code] ....

Is this fixable without jumping through too many hoops or should I just reinstall the system? I need the computer for work so Im not gonna spend days trying to fix it without reinstalling.

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 :: Firestarter Fails To Start On System Boot

Jul 11, 2011

I have just recently installed firestarter to get an idea of iptables editing with a GUI. Firestarter works great and I love it, however when I turn my system on, and my system is booting up the terminal displays a "Failed" message when attempting to start up firestarter. Now I have been doing my homework (reserch) and have read that a user will get this error because firestarter trys to load prior to the network manager starting up. I have also read some other variables that can cause this is if you use network manager and have a password on your user account (which I do have) can cause this issue.

However in most cases from what I have read is even though it gives the user a "Failed" startup message, once the user logs in, and is connected to the internet firestarter will actually load the iptables. I did some tests and from what I understand I can see that this is true because I have allowed access to certain torrent trackers, and denied access to others, and I can see some come online. Does firestarter load iptables once the user logs in? Or once it fails to load, does it not load at all unless you manually open/load the application. If firestarter just modifies iptables, then once I save my listings in firestarter then I really don't need it to start up correct?

Debian Configuration :: TightVNC Configuration On The Squeeze?

Feb 8, 2011

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:

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?

Debian Configuration :: Using Tor In Squeeze?

Aug 28, 2011

When I activate Tor in Iceweasel, it forbids me access to the internet completely. Even attempting Google results in "Iceweasel is configured to use proxy server that is refusing connection".

I have seen this in Lenny, too - it was caused by activating Tor without having installed privoxy. I installed privoxy and everything was okay. In Squeeze, Tor is using polipo. Polipo is installed and running. I have not played with settings of polipo or Tor, the configuration is the same as it was after installation.

What can be wrong? I am a rather an user than a networking guru. I am connected to internet by means of DHCP, no local lans, no special routings, no additional proxies. I have already tired to reinstall polipo.

Debian Configuration :: NTFS In Squeeze?

Oct 19, 2010

Got a problem mounting my Windows partition in Squeeze. It keeps refusing to mount it for me in Dolphin. I am a member of the disk and fuse groups, /dev/fuse is owned by root:fuse, and /sbin/mount.ntfs points to /sbin/mount.ntfs-3g, which in turn points to the ntfs-3g executable. I kind of need this ASAP. I am supposed to be finishing with this machine in 35min, and I am dead in the water without the ability to copy some files from the Squeeze ext4 partition over.

Debian Configuration :: Kernel BUG In Squeeze 2.6.32-5-686 ?

Oct 21, 2010

I installed Debian Squeeze from a net install to a raid 1 array. I have been having a lot of troubles related to being able to write to one or more of the mounted drives - even touch gives me errors.

The most interesting line from dmesg is:

Here is the full output from dmesg:

I found a thread that indicated that this bug was fixed in the next kernel version: 2.6.32-6. I am willing to upgrade the kernel to get rid of my problems. Is a squeeze kernel at 2.6.32-6 or higher available? If so, where? I have not compiled my own kernel, and am not very interested in getting into that.

Debian :: Trying Out Squeeze / Configuration Could Not Be Loaded

Dec 14, 2010

A couple days ago I installed Debian Lenny (netinst) to my friend's laptop, a IBM Thinkpad T23. Got a black screen after gdm loaded and the laptop seemed frozen. Decided to upgrade to squeeze. I edited the apt sources file and changed all the instances of lenny to squeeze, and then upgraded.Had the same display problem, but found a web site that suggested disabling acpi. So I did that, got the sound working, (needed cs46xx firmware), and all seems to be running fine.I get some weird udev messages at boot time, but I have a feeling that's due to how I upgraded. I can't copy and paste since the messages aren't in my system log. If anybody wants more information about it, I can supply it. pgrep shows two instances of udev running so it appears the messages are only warnings.When upgrading to squeeze, I used tds.net debian mirror links. Earlier today I switched to Debian's official US repo URLs and had to upgrade about 250 packages after reloading package data.

Now, when I click on System -> Administration -> Time and Date.After a couple seconds I get a dialog box that says "The configuration data could not be loaded" in bold black letters. Underneath that in smaller letters, "You are not allowed to access the system configuration" I receive that same error when accessing "services" and "users and groups."But I can access the synaptic package manager and update manager from the administration submenu.
