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
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 :: Jessie - Service Samba Restart

Oct 20, 2014

I've after latest jessie update a problem with service samba restart. If I use "service samba restart", there is a timeout (after long time) and error.

Output of "systemctl status samba.service":

Select all● samba.service - LSB: ensure Samba daemons are started (nmbd and smbd)
   Loaded: loaded (/etc/init.d/samba)
   Active: failed (Result: timeout) since Mo 2014-10-20 02:16:57 CEST; 7s ago

Okt 20 02:16:57 server systemd[1]: Failed to start LSB: ensure Samba daemons are started (nmbd and smbd).

Whats going wrong. "service samba restart" should bring no error message if the service is not running previously.

Debian Configuration :: Service Settings Safe To Turn Off?

May 12, 2010

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..

Debian Configuration :: Udev Script To Run Service On Device Insertion

Jan 24, 2010

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].

Debian Configuration :: Adding Router For Mail Service Function?

Jun 10, 2011

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.

Debian Configuration :: Why Does /etc/aliases Choke On Email Addresses

Dec 21, 2010

Related to my last post in that it is another email issue, but something else I am having a problem with.

Debian Lenny on virtual KVM (32-bit, v5.0.7)

With Postfix it is necessary to have an alias for root, eg: root: someuser

In theory, and as far as I am aware, this can also be something like: root: someone@someaddress.tld

When I use the latter, though, the following happens whenever my system tries to redirect root email messages, but not when I use the root: someuser method in the aliases file (and, yes, I do know to use newaliases after amending the file).

The firewall is not an issue (tested with and without the firewall), nor are the resolvers, and the DNS for accounts on the box is all okay and fully propagated. Also, changing the email address to something like does not work, either, - same error message.

Debian Configuration :: Can't Send Email From Command Line Using Mail

Mar 17, 2010

I'm running a desktop-less version of Debian via Sun VirtualBox. The reason I'm doing this is because I don't have enough graphics or RAM power to have a desktop environment running on top of my current desktop; also, I want to learn Linux through the command prompt. I'm running the AMD64 version of Debian; I'm not sure if that's relevant.

My main goal is to be able to email useful files from the virtual Debian to my main computer, so that I can save them for later if I ever decide to do a "real" installation of Debian on this computer. I realize now that there's probably some "easy" way to do this by reading the virtual machine's hard drive, but at this point, my curiosity wants to see this issue resolved. I started off wanting to find a command-line program to send my email with, and one was built-in. The syntax ~$ sudo mail -s "Subject" "This is a test email."

Cc:C^D ~$

is what I found. I tried it, and (unsurprisingly), it failed. I then learned that the mail command calls exim4, or something along those lines, so I needed to configure exim4. Soon thereafter, I learned that Yahoo's SMTP wasn't public, but Google's was. So, I found this web page which described how to configure exim4 to allow for email to be sent to a Gmail account. I made one, and followed the page word-for-word.

I sudo-mailled a test email to my Gmail account, and nothing happened. I waited a bit longer, and still, nothing happened. Finally, I started looking around, and found out about the exim4 logs in /var/log/exim4. In my mainlog, I think that it's telling me that Google denied my connection: <date><time><random numbers and letters> == ********** R=send_via_gmail t=gmail_smtp defer (111): Connection refused

So, now, I'm just stuck. I don't know what I did wrong, I checked my exim4.conf.template twice for spelling errors, but I don't think I made any. At this point, I can only hope that someone else has had a similar problem, or knows what I'm doing wrong (or haven't done yet).

Debian Configuration :: Jessie Service Script Not Calling Status And Stop Routines

Apr 1, 2016

I am the author of an internet radio for the Raspberry PI originally running on Debian Wheezy. The radio (radiod) service is started and stopped using the usual service commands:

service radiod start|stop|status

Since upgrading to Debian Jessie the service status and stop routines in my radio daemon are no longer called.

For example:

# service radiod status
● radiod.service - LSB: Raspberry PI Radio Daemon
Loaded: loaded (/etc/init.d/radiod)
Active: active (running) since Thu 2016-03-31 20:17:07 CEST; 15h ago
Process: 380 ExecStart=/etc/init.d/radiod start (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS)
CGroup: /system.slice/radiod.service
└─603 python /usr/share/radio/ start

If I call my program (which runs as a daemon) I see the status message from my program

# ./ status
radiod running pid 603

I have established that service stop never calls my program routines to shutdown the radiod daemon when the system is rebooted (I see that from my log files).

The reboot hangs for about 5 minutes whilst stopping the radiod service (because stop never calls my stop routines).

Below is my radiod script, which is fairly conventional, and which has been working all the time until I ported to Debian Jessie.

# Provides: radiod
# Should-Start:
# Should-Stop:

[Code] ....

Debian Configuration :: Rigger A Script When An Email Is Received To Update MySQL Database?

Feb 10, 2010

how to trigger a script when an email is received to update my mySQL database. I do not want to physically send the message to the script, I just want the script to execute and to under execute under a specific mail account.

I thought of setting up a cron job at first, but decided going down that approach would be a huge waste of resources. What method would you recommend?

Debian Configuration :: Sshd Service Never "really" Starts On System Boot

Dec 3, 2010

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...?

CentOS 5 :: Dovecot/pop3 Email Service Following File System Restoration?

Sep 11, 2009

I am trying to prepare procedures for email restoration following a file system loss that contained user Maildir directories. Assuming that my most recent backup is earlier than the last time that many users received and downloaded email, the restored mail directories will not contain messages that were previously received and downloaded to clients following the backup and preceding the crash. This is not a problem in itself, however, it does appear to cause problems for the email clients.

My desire would be for email clients (outlook, outlook express, thunderbird) to properly recognize the messages that currently exist on the server, ignore previously downloaded messages and download newly arriving messages.The behavior that I am seeing is that the email client fails to recognize that any new messages exist and fails to download any messages at all. By removing the dovecot.index... files and the uidlist file, the clients will download ALL messages that are present in the "new" and "cur" directories even if previously downloaded. This is also an undesirable outcome.

Fedora :: 15 Service Configuration App - Enable / Disable At Startup Setting Is Greyed Out

Jun 25, 2011

When installing Samba and Webmin I use the application "system-config-services" or (if it is easier to find for you that way) menu->Administration->Service management. In this application I can start the services I need (nmb, smb, webmin), but the enable/disable at startup setting is greyed out... Even when I start the application as root it still gives me no possibility to configure the services to start up on boot. This should be possible. It works this way in Fedora 13 and Fedora 14, so why not in Fedora 15?

Before reporting a bug, I would like to ask if other users here have the same problem (and -if possible- a solution)... In the mean tim I guess it is back to the old way of configurating services - sigh..

[edit] I tried to remove the [SOLVED] from the title, but the forum software does not seems to allow me to do that... I thought it was solved by installing xinetd, but I was happy a bit too early. I still have no answer for this problem.

Ubuntu Servers :: HTML PHP Email Configuration / Squirrelmail Setup

Sep 1, 2011

I'm having problems with emails containing HTML content. When Google downloads the email messages via POP3 from my squirrelmail server, the message does not display using HTML. I'm not sure if this is Google's fault or Squirrelmail's fault, but I've never had problems before on other servers running the same script and using squirrelmail. If I login to squirrelmail, I have the option to download the email message as an attachment. The attachment, if opened by my local browser, shows up as HTML content, and it is properly formatted. However, I'm using Google to download my emails and file them under my Gmail account. After Gmail downloads the messages, it shows up like this:

Date Sat, Jul 30, 2011 at 6:07 PM
Subject Pending Registration

Content-type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1
From: Name Removed <>
Message-Id: <20110730234302.6B6FEDC08BA@eric-desktop>
Date: Sat, 30 Jul 2011 17:43:02 -0600 (MDT)

<p><b> After registering your client via your server, please visit the following URL to send them confirmation: </b></p>

I really need it to show up properly once Gmail downloads the messages, as it takes a long time to login to Squirrel mail and download each message as an attachment. My PHP Code Headers Look like this:
$headers = 'MIME-Version: 1.0' . " ";
$headers .= 'Content-type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1' . " ";
$headers .= "From: $uname <$email>";

Someone suggested that I remove the from my script. I did, and now the email shows a from sender as www-data Before, the from field showed up as empty. However, my PHP script is designed to change the sender's information to the clients that contact me. Thus, if customer A contacts me, the email should be from customer A <>. However, it's not being changed by the PHP script. It works on every other server but mine. I think my postfix configuration isn't setup properly? What needs to be configured on it?
