Debian Configuration :: Extract Gzip File Don't Get Any Installable Files
Apr 6, 2016
I have installed debian on my dell latitude d630 laptop and am currently making a derivative for others to use. however I can't get the wireless to work. I downloaded it from the broadcom site but it comes as a gzip file instead of a deb file. if I extract the gzip file I don't get any installable (deb) files. I need the wireless to work because now a bridged network from my windows laptop isn't working.
I have a file : cpq_cciss-2.6.20-34.rhel4.i686.dd which is designed to build a floppy disk; these floppy is used to hold disk driver which is not on RedHat CD-Rom. But this .dd is not complete: some files, like /drivers/pci.ids are missing.My idea is to extract all files from .dd file, put missing files and then re-create a new dd file. But, how can extract all files from initial .dd file, and then recreate a new one?
I've downloaded configuration files for my VPN, Kovurt, and they don't have a .ovpn file extension. Further, when I tried to enter the information manually (using this guide), I saw that the files only include the <ca> tags, and no <cert>, <key> or <tls-auth> tags.
Here is the content of one of the config files, simply named 'Tokyo' with no extension. (adding .ovpn didn't work either):
Code: Select allclient dev tun proto udp remote 220.127.116.11 443 resolv-retry infinite nobind
I have an open ticket with Kovurt asking for the other info, but I know already that they don't have much in the way of documentation or support for Linux.
Does Ubuntu have the equivalent of a Windows .exe self-installable file? If so, what is it called? I seem to remember installing LimeWire on Ubuntu a while back and the file I downloaded was self-installable. Is there a place where Ubuntu programs are available for download as packages that install themselves?Why are most programs for Linux not self-installable, like .exe installers in Windows? Is there a security advantage to most programs not being available for download a single automatic install file? It would be much easier for me to go to a program's website, download a single file that installs by itself, and be done with it.
Also, why is it that, unless you install a program in Ubuntu using synaptic package manager, the program cannot be uninstalled under GUI? I really love Ubuntu, but find that even having simple control over installing and uninstalling programs is a real pain. I would love to go to LibreOffice's website, download a single file for Ubuntu that would install the entire program, install it, and be done with it.
I am going crazy with a gzip file. I can decompress the file in Windows using WinRAR but it is impossible on any UNIX operating system. the file seems to be ok. If I do file the_name_of_the_file.gz
I get: the_name_of_the_file.gz: gzip compressed data, from Unix, last modified: Sun Jan 30 14:10:21 2011
But if I do gunzip -f the_name_of_the_file.gz I alsways get: gzip: the_name_of_the_file.gz: unexpected end of file The same problem happens when I try to extract the file using the GUI tool in Ubuntu or MacOSX,
I have limited access to several servers (key based auth) but cron facility is not available for me. Those servers getting filled up by large apache logs and I have to login to each node manually and clean them each and every day.
I tried to write a script to run from login box but when i try that it looks like it is looking for logs in the local server (login box).
So current situation is:
How can i modify this so that the script in server1 will look for files in that server and zip them?
Google showed another command called rsh but in my env it is also not avil.
I have a script which periodically backs up a directory using the command "tar -czvf [name] [directory]" but my problem is that the script has recently been putting a lot of stress on the server (Minecraft SMP) and tends to lag players as it backs up, which recently has been taking nearly 5 minutes.So I need to know if there's a way to control the GZip compression rate at the same time that it archives and backs up the files?I understand that I can first tar the files and then GZip them separately with a different compression rate afterwards, but this would not work because it names the files with the current server time, which sometimes changes in between commands.
I am currently trying to install Debian 8 "Jessie" AMD64 on a Dell Latitude E7240. I have two 256 GB SSD disks, on the first one I have installed Xubuntu 14.04 successfully. I want to install Debian 8 (XFCE) on the other one.I have tried using Debian-8.0.0-Live-amd64-xfce, Debian-8.0.0-amd64-DVD and Debian-8.0.0-amd64-netinst, all from a USB key (prepared with Unetbootin), but after successfully partitionning SSD disk, the installer raises the following issue:"no install-able kernel was found in the defined apt sources".
I want to take my Debian server's file system home to scan with a chkrootkit and I want to copy all the files and folders to my flash drive which is only 2 gigs and the file system is 3 gigs.
So should I use gzip or tar or what? I am still looking around google but nothing is super clear. Also I am currently making a tar.gz archive of everything, but I used the GUI so I don't know if I did it right or not yet. Its taking a long time tho.
I have some errors when run the mount -all command: mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdc5, missing codepage or helper program, or other error In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail or so Failed to open /proc/filesystems: No such file or directory
I am trying to upload an IOS in the cisco NAC Appliance. The IOS version has to be updated as 4.8. I am getting the below error when i tried. File is not in gzip format Child return status 1 Error exit delayed from previous errors. I am using the below command to unzip the IOS file. tar xzvf ccca_upgrade-4.8.0-from-4.6.x.tar.gz.
There is this bug in the latest version of Ubuntu, which is also Jessie, which is:
Can't copy a file from SMB share to the local file system: Software caused connection abort
The problem, apparently, is that newer versions of Samba hit servers with multiple requests at the same time, and for some reason the Zyxel and Iomega boxes can't handle this. The best solution they've come up with is to modify the smb.conf file on your server to include this setting: "max mux = 1".
Here is the reference material on this bug: [URL] ....
People who develop samba have fixed it in the latest version but neither the ubuntu nor Debian have released the fixed version of nautilus, as of yet. Here, is the reference: [URL] ....
I have a RAID5 array created with mdadm from four 1.5 TB WD15EADS formatted XFS and shared with samba. I recently upgraded it (fresh install to a SSD) from an old -stable 2.6.18-6 to a fresh -lenny 2.6.26-2, and since the upgrade, I've noticed I can't stream high bandwidth video off of the array over samba anymore. The video stutters like it's out of bandwidthI've tried using mpc-hc64 in Windows 7 and my newly arrived Boxee Box.
Everything is wired gigabit ethernet (Boxee Box isn't, but the other two and the switch all three run through are), and I can copy the file at 30-35 MB/s to my desktop, which is significantly more bandwidth than streaming a video consumes. Looking at CPU usage on my desktop and the debian file server, there is plenty of headroom on both. Lower bandwidth files play perfectly fine, either SD or smaller HD.
Since I installed to a new boot drive, all the other hardware is the same, and the array of data is independent of the OS installation, I can boot off the old system, and I can verify that it indeed does not have the streaming problem. Everything plays perfectly smoothly like you'd expect. It even appears to copy slightly faster (35-40 MB/s versus 30-35 MB/s).Is there something in the configuration of the system or samba that I can change?
When ever I extract a file from a .tar or whatever, it isn't detected. I notice this mainly when i'm using xampp. I copy zip up all my files on one computer, load ubuntu on another, extract the files to the web folder (htdocs) and then I get nothing. However, when I manually create the files directly on my computer as opposed to extracting them, they appear.
Is there something I need to do in order to have these files appear? Is there some sort of file system refresh? Or am I being a complete idiot?
Before I used to make a copy of configuration file and give the end of the file name as 'something.conf.bkp' . Later realized it was a mistake. The correct wording should end in .bak and not bkp .
As per (See apt.conf(5) manpage, section DIRECTORIES, last paragraph.)
The Ignore-Files-Silently list can be used to specify which files APT should silently ignore while parsing the files in the fragment directories. Per default a file which end with .disabled, ~, .bak or .dpkg-[a-z]+ is silently ignored. As seen in the last default value these patterns can use regular expression syntax.
I just moved from Ubuntu to Debian, managed to get the WiFi printer working, installed flash player etc. Just seemed to have trouble opening files over the LAN, is there a firewall setting I need to set. Files work fine if i copy them to the desktop and open them from there but not over the LAN. I have looked on the web with no luck.
