Debian Configuration :: Apt-get Auto-remove Removes Nothing

Aug 10, 2015

The apt-get autoremove command, I use Debian 8 for some time now and I often install a package, test it for some minutes and remove it then. I noticed that in most cases (if not all, I'm not completely sure) all the dependencies that were installed with the package (mostly libraries, of course) stay installed on the system when I remove the package.

And there is no output of apt-get that there are unnecessary pacakges which I can remove with apt-get autoremove. The autoremove command does nothing.Before I changed to Debian, I used Ubuntu and there all the dependencies are removed with apt-get autoremove when I uninstalled a package.My question is now, is this normal? if there are fundamental differences in which packages "autoremove" removes between Debian and Ubuntu?

Programming :: PHP Auto Removes Stale Sessions On It's Own But Doesn't Remove From MYSQL Table

Aug 24, 2010

I know PHP auto removes stale sessions on it's own, but that doesn't remove them from the MYSQL table. So I was gonna make a cron script that ran once every hour that removed any MYSQL shopping cart item from the table if the original session_id that created it does not exist anymore.

From my understanding a session_id is an "actual" file located somewhere on the harddisk (is it not? correct me if I'm wrong), so I was going to do a simple check for each item in the shopping cart to check for it's original session file, if it didn't exist on the harddisk, then simply remove it from the mysql table.

Debian Configuration :: Apt-get Auto-remove After Installing Jessie

Jun 20, 2015

After installing Jessie, apt-get gives me a huge list of packages with the suggestion to autoremove them. Now, I've tried auto-remove once and was left with a naked Gnome, so I was wondering if there's another way to find out which packages I should keep and which I can safely remove. Is it safe to delete packages that cannot be found using the search function for the stable release? I checked them one by one here URL....How about linux images that won't appear in the above search?

linux-image-3.14-0.bpo.1-amd64
linux-image-3.14-0.bpo.2-amd64
linux-image-3.16-0.bpo.2-amd64
linux-image-3.16-0.bpo.3-amd64
linux-image-3.2.0-4-amd64

How about results shown by deborphan?

Debian Configuration :: Auto-login And Auto-connect To Networks

Jun 3, 2010

I press On-button, Debian boots, logs in and automatically connects to the Wireless network AND! to my local pc via LAN. It runs an ssh server, so I can ssh into debian over internet and communicate with the local pc (send a magic packet).Here are my problems:

1) I don't how to log in automatically. This and this doesn't work.
2) I need a network tool that can manage multiple connections and has a reconnect feature. With the default network manager I cannot even connect to more than one network simultaneously although I have two network devices of course.

And I guess I can run all that in console mode, right?

Ubuntu :: Grub.cfg Does Not Get Read Correct - Auto-removes Characters At Boot Menu

Mar 10, 2010

I have a problem with GRUB 2 that I hope someone here can help me fix. Every time I boot I get an error because GRUB deletes that last part of the initrd line in /boot/grub/grub.cfg.

So this:

Code:

Becomes this (notice the missing "c" at the end):

Code:

And the windows part is also broken:

Code:

If I add an extra character at the end of the line it get removed instead and then it works. But only until next time the grub.cfg is auto updated. The error is only there when booting. Reading the file every character is in there.

Debian :: Apt Wants To Auto-remove Most Of Desktop

Oct 16, 2015

Fresh Jessie installation with KDE desktop. Installed from Disk 1 of the dvd images. Can't figure why apt wants to remove this stuff. The only packages I removed from the base installation was iceweasel, and juk. I'd like to autoremove to clean out the amarok stuff but I'm afraid it will take all the rest with it. What do I do about this, and or how do I fix it? Does apt have a setting where if an app isn't used for x amount of time it deems it useless for removal?

Code: Select allCalculating upgrade...

The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required:
  amarok-common amarok-utils apper apper-data ark cdparanoia cdrdao clamz dvd+rw-tools easy-rsa genisoimage growisofs gwenview htdig hyphen-en-us
  iputils-arping k3b k3b-data k3b-i18n kamera kate kcalc kdeplasma-addons kdesudo khelpcenter4 kio-audiocd kmix kopete kscreensaver ksnapshot libappstream1

Debian :: Malfunctioning Apt-get Auto-remove?

Mar 29, 2016

I'm new to Debian, and there's something I don't understand about the packages marked as automatically installed. They are supposed to be removed by "apt-get autoremove" if no other packages depend on them, right? Well, I've installed xserver-xorg-video-ati which pulled *video-radeon, *video-r128 and *video-mach64. I later realised that I only needed *video-radeon, and got rid of xserver-xorg-video-ati and the other two. The thing is... xserver-xorg-video-radeon is still there, even if only xserver-xorg-video-ati and xserver-xorg-video-radeon-dbg depend on it, and neither are installed in my system.

Code: Select all$ apt list xserver-xorg-video*
Listing... Done
xserver-xorg-video-all/stable 1:7.7+7 amd64
xserver-xorg-video-ati/stable 1:7.5.0-1 amd64
xserver-xorg-video-ati-dbg/stable 1:7.5.0-1 amd64

[code]...

I obviously want to keep *video-radeon, but I'm just wondering, why does it not get removed when I run "apt-get autoremove"?

Debian Configuration :: How To Auto-start GUI As Root

Sep 28, 2015

I have a "time-server". It's sending time to different devices through different ports/protocols. The problem is that it has no operator and that makes some extra difficulties.

Now when i try to start it using terminal Code: Select allsudo ./myprogram works fine and

Code: Select all./myprogram doesn't work.

It is so because without sudo i have no access to ports. As a result If i add my program to System->Preferences->Startup Applications it has the same problem. So i need to start it as root, auto-start, right after auto-login to system but without entering password cause nobody will do it.

Also I need to start ntpd but it also asks password sometimes I've tried googles but it offer a few ways with entering password that isn't suitable for me or writing some scripts/changing system files but with no example I'm afraid to break it all. So is there a way to start Myprogram and NTPD as root with no password entering?

My system is Debian 6.0.10 Squeeze, Kernel 2.6.32-5-686

Debian Configuration :: How To Auto Logoff After Exiting X

Jun 18, 2010

I can use this at the end of bash_profile to autorun start x after logging on. code...

But what about to auto logout after killing the X session? I hit exit from fluxbox, but I could add a menu item I suppose to just kill the xsession. Wondering if there is a graceful way to do it with bash_profile.

Also, on a related note, if I switch to dash with the bash_profile method still work?

Debian Configuration :: Auto Start Proxy On Boot

Aug 13, 2015

I have a debian 8.1.1 server running owncloud and a proxy server at home. I have everything working fine, with one exception. The proxy server won't start on boot. If I ssh into the server, then run "sockd -D" as root, it starts up and runs just fine. Any guides I find refer to the init.d script method that worked in Wheezy, but that isn't working. I think it has to do with Jessie switching to systemd? I had used someone elses script in init.d, and ran update-rc.d, but it still doesn't start.

With Jessie, how can I make "sockd -D" execute on system startup?

Debian Configuration :: Network / Interfaces Allow-hotplug And Auto?

Debian Configuration :: Network-manager & Auto Scanning While Connected

May 6, 2010

I'm trying to use network-manager in sid and it's incredibly frustrating because every 2 minutes or so it seems to scan for wireless access points, during which time my SSH connections completely hang and screw up. Pings start dropping packets as well. By doing an "iwlist scan" I can reproduce the behavior. Has anyone else dealt with this? I haven't been using network-manager, but I am currently due to mobility and needed VPN functionality... WICD with no network-manager works better but there's no gui-based VPN support. I've got an Atheros wireless device and I've read that supposedly it should be doing background scanning since kernel 2.6.32, but I haven't seen anything like that, and I'm on 2.6.32-5-amd64 currently, 2.6.32-3-amd64 behaves the same too.

Debian Configuration :: Auto Syncing Folder With Windows Share?

Aug 10, 2010

I use Debian Squeeze on my laptop, and in my office we have a WinXP box where we store all our documents and stuff. When I'm in the office, I can directly mount my directory to edit documents, and at home/wherever I can use VPN to connect to the box so it's no problem again.

However: I'd like to know if there is a way to set up a directory on my laptop, that I can use even when offline, and then when I'm connected to the office computer, it automatically syncs with it.

Debian Configuration :: Stop Squeeze Auto Using My Mobile As Wired Network?

May 25, 2010

I have Debian Squeeze AMD64 bit release. It finds my wired ethernet connection and ues itfine, although nothing shows up in the top right corner under the networking icon.

When I plug my mobile phone in (HTC S620) it always uses this as the main internet connection and then even if disconnected wont use my wired connection until I reboot.

Is there a way to stop it doing this or at least have my wired connction as an option so I can just click to reconnect to my ethernet connection?

Debian :: Openssh-server Auto Configuration Fails When Upgrading Lenny To Squeeze?

Sep 10, 2010

I'm in need of a bit of assistance from you Debian users. I have two servers that I thought were identical installations, both running Debian Lenny. Tonight I started the upgrade to Squeeze on both servers and one of them went smooth. The other one started out good but fails on the postconfiguration of openssh-server. I'm getting the following message:

Code:
Setting up openssh-server (1:5.5p1-4) ...
Auto configuration failed
2524:error:0E079065:configuration file routines:DEF_LOAD_BIO:missing equal sign:conf_def.c:366:line 67
invoke-rc.d: initscript ssh, action "restart" failed.

[Code].....

It looks like there's an error in one of the files in openssh-server that prohibits it from installing correctly. However on the other server it all went well.

Debian Configuration :: Remove 'debian-sys-maint' Account?

Mar 8, 2010

Does anyone know if I can successfully remove / delete the 'debian-sys-maint' account from MySQL? I noticed it there and appears to be something the Debian developers / maintainers of MySQL package added. I am guessing it's there to manage package updates and system maintenance as a back door of sorts. Anyone know if I can remove this account and not break the package or database?

Debian Configuration :: How To Remove VM From System

Jan 10, 2016

I would like to remove a specific domU (test01--pv--guest) from my machine. I am not sure how far/to what extent to remove files. Here are the files and properties it seems I should remove:

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 10 Jan 9 11:05 /dev/disk/by-id/dm-name-xenvg-test01--pv--guest--disk -> ../../dm-3
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 10 Jan 9 01:03 /dev/disk/by-id/dm-name-xenvg-test01--pv--guest--swap -> ../../dm-2
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 7 Jan 9 11:05 /dev/mapper/xenvg-test01--pv--guest--disk -> ../dm-3
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 7 Jan 9 01:03 /dev/mapper/xenvg-test01--pv--guest--swap -> ../dm-2
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 7 Jan 9 11:05 /dev/xenvg/test01-pv-guest-disk -> ../dm-3

The above link to dm-2 and dm-3.

brw-rw---- 1 root disk 254, 0 Jan 9 01:03 /dev/dm-0
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 254, 1 Jan 9 01:03 /dev/dm-1
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 254, 2 Jan 9 01:03 /dev/dm-2
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 254, 3 Jan 9 11:05 /dev/dm-3
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 254, 4 Jan 9 01:03 /dev/dm-4
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 254, 5 Jan 9 01:03 /dev/dm-5
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 254, 6 Jan 9 01:03 /dev/dm-6
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 254, 7 Jan 9 01:03 /dev/dm-7

Will they be deleted automatically or should/can I remove them? How do I check the need for the other dm-? files? As indicated below, it seems like some may be duplicates.

I also found this set in /etc/lvm/archive/:

-rw------- 1 root root 2909 Oct 17 00:41 Relaise-vg_00000-1453251236.vg
-rw------- 1 root root 2929 Oct 24 22:08 Relaise-vg_00001-1530642081.vg
-rw------- 1 root root 2924 Oct 25 19:33 Relaise-vg_00002-328450675.vg
-rw------- 1 root root 2901 Oct 26 19:53 Relaise-vg_00003-1555350964.vg
-rw------- 1 root root 2902 Oct 26 19:53 Relaise-vg_00004-1044927704.vg

[Code] ....

Some of these seem like duplicates. This may be due to multiple attempts to build the volumes. Is there a way to determine if all of the are useful?

Debian Configuration :: Apt Wants To Remove Make?

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 :: 'Add/Remove Applications' Disappeared After Upgrade?

Feb 22, 2010

I had some problems about a week ago with installing Python2.6-minimal (as an issue, it got resolved), however, after the problem was resolved, 'Add/Remove Applications' disappeared after upgrade was complete. I usually do not use this program for installing, etc., if I can help it, but do use it more often for web address reference when I am considering installing a new program, etc. Question is,is there some way to find out if it is merely lurking somewhere in my system... & then to once again add it to my menu list? Or, if that is not the case, to reinstall it via apt-get, aptitude, or some way like this? I could not find this application (or whatever it is called) in the Synaptic Package Manager.

When I check for updates in synaptic, it always wants to remove upstart in favour of sysvinit. I wouldn't have a problem with that except, with sysvinit, squeeze no longer shuts down or starts up.
