Debian :: Debootstrap Warnings - Getting Them Constantly ?

Aug 26, 2010

Im currently installing debian on my old server, its a 64bit computer, so i've downloaded the amd64 for this project. But under the Basis Installation, of this cd image, im getting a debootstrap warning every time i want to continue the installation, the last warning i remember was something coreutils_6.10-6_amd64.deb (Something like that, not totaly sure), and im lost, can't find anything closely related to the subject.

Debian :: Debootstrap To LVM - Booting But No Root

Nov 21, 2015

first time with debootstrap, i followed: [URL] the error i get on boot looks like this:

Code: Select all [URL]

they did not mention lvm speficically so i just installed lvm2 inside the chroot and created my fstab like this:

Code: Select all/dev/mapper/debian--unstable-root / ext4    errors=remount-ro 0       1
/dev/mapper/debian--unstable-home /home ext4    defaults        0       2
/dev/mapper/debian--unstable-tmp /tmp       ext4    defaults        0       2
/dev/mapper/debian--unstable-var /var    ext4    defaults        0       2

Having one mounted from jessie looks like this:

Code: Select all/dev/mapper/debian--unstable-root on /home/julius/other-systems/debian-unstable type ext4 (rw,relatime,data=ordered)

So I guess the fstab is correct

I already tried to "refresh" the inittab with:

Code: Select allupdate-initramfs -u
command ran ok, but no change at boot.

Debian Configuration :: Root Password Debootstrap And Ssh

Feb 11, 2010

For my dissertation I created a debootstrap install of Lenny. When I boot this system I just can login with root without a password. When I want to ssh this machine with the debootstrap install I can't just login with root. I'm asked for a password which I don't have.

So I created one with passwd root and after that I can connect to the machine with ssh and the given password. But the machine still logs in with without a password.

Debian :: Router Configuration And Certificates Warnings?

Apr 19, 2011

I've just bought a Linksys WRT610N router and I ran through various problems during the configuration, that brought some questions.Here is what I did to configure it (following the short manual that I got with the router)1. plugged the router in my modem and in my computer via ethernet cables2. entered its IP address (given on the manual) on my browser and logged in with the factory login3. changed the login passwordAfter this the problems that I have encountered are that:I set up the administration of the router to be disabled via wireless and enabled locally via https, but when saving those settings I either lost the connection (the browser telling me the server was not accessible) or asked confirm a security certificate after being (logically) redirected to the https version of the administration pageafter trying to loggin again, I wasn't able to login via https but only via http even if after logging those parameters were still as I set them (wireless administrative login disabled and local administrative login enabled only via https)

via https when getting something else than "the server is not responding or could be too busy", I was prompted the untrusted connection site, saying that" uses an invalid security certificate.The certificate is not trusted because it is self-signed.The certificate is only valid for Linksys.The certificate expired on 01/01/71 01:21. The current time is 19/04/11 22:56.(Error code:sec_error_expired_issuer_certificate)"I noticed that after loosing the connection and not being able to reach the router either with http or https, the only way I was then able to reconnect to it was to go into (I am using firefox 4 on squeeze) edit > preferences > advanced > encryption > view certificates > servers and delete the linksys certificate

Debian Installation :: Debootstrap Installation On Btrfs Subvolumes

Sep 7, 2015

So I have installed Debian through debootstrap and it seemed to go off without a hitch, the problem came problem came about during the boot process. I am dual-booting with Arch and use Systemd-boot as my bootloader... it finds the kernal and initrd and starts to boot but I run into this problem where it gets to the options part for root and doesn't mount. have done this very same installation on virtualbox with ext4 filesystem and it worked without a hitch.. I know it has something to do with the btrfs subvolumes I'm so new to Debian I haven't made it past this installation process..

here is my lsblk
Code: Select all   
sda        8:0      0    /My_Files
sdb        8:32    0    /home
sdc        8:48    0     


I have installed btrfs-tools and I don't know what the following means... It seems to do the first two fine, vmlinuz and initrd.img but it doesn't find my root because maybe it doesn't recognize the 'rootflags' tag? or Debian doesn't automatically deal with btrfs-subvolumes nicely?


Select allBegin: checking root file system . . . fsck from util-linux 2.25.2
/sbin/fsck.btrfs: BTRFS file system

Debian :: 8.2 With XFCE Constantly Freezing

Oct 30, 2015

So I'm having troublesome issues with Debian 8.2, one of them being really costly to my productivity. This issue started maybe a month or so back, and has been continuing since. Laptop is a Toshiba C50-B-14D

During every freeze all those happen:

Screen freezes (The whole display becomes frozen, with only cursor movement - Time displayed stays frozen too)No keyboard input (even Cap & Num Lock leds will not dim once pressed)Power button (pressing once will do nothing - I have to hold for an unhealthy shutdown and reboot)Touchpad Input Works (Cursor responses to movement only, clicks/change on-hover do not.) Fans become quiet

Today at 11:46, it happened while just running Chromium. At the time:

*XFCE4 Power Management Plugin
Presentation Mode [on]
Charger was connected

Here is the syslog (I know this isn't useful as it doesn't show what's causing the issue) the freeze happened at 11:46 and 11:57 is when I rebooted back into debian.

Code: Select all----------------------CUT------------------
Oct 30 08:31:01 Badook rtkit-daemon[1315]: Supervising 4 threads of 2 processes of 1 users.

Debian :: 8.3 - External HDD Constantly Unmounting

Mar 30, 2016

Running Debian 8.3.

I have an external hard drive (1TB MyBook) mounted via fstab by UUID to a directory. When copying/writing/reading a lot of files from it, it randomly unmounts and remounts as a different device.

It'll start as /dev/sdb1, I'll set a lot of files to copy to it and then it'll unmount and re-acknowledge itself as /dev/sdc1, the file copying process will crash and the current directory in terminal will display an I/O error. Running mount -a remounts it back to the directory specified in fstab as /dev/sdc1 and the loop continues. If it's just idling, there's no issue, only does this under load.

How can I diagnose what is causing it to unmount?

Debian :: SSL Certificate Constantly Changing

Apr 22, 2011

I use WLM (And yes, I realise odds are this is a problem on microsofts side) and almost every time claws mail connects WLM returns a new certificate. Valid, but I have to constantly accept or deny the certificate. Why is WLM pumping out fresh certs all the time and how can I fix this?

Whenever this pops up whatever I have at the moment shows "Signature status: No certificate issuer found" and the other shows "Signature status: Correct".

Debian :: GDM Constantly Attempting To Login?

Oct 19, 2010

I setup Debian a few days ago and everything was working fine. On a routine reboot to test a start-up script I turned the monitor on and realized that I could not logon to the machine locally. None of my keyboard input was making it to the username field but random things were happening. Every now and then it would say stuff like incorrect username or spontaneously jump to the password input field and then say incorrect password. I've rebooted a couple times, even without a keyboard attatched and still am seeing this. In /var/log/auth.log I show gdm going nuts trying to validate usernames.

Oct 18 12:15:16 Eva gdm[3287]: pam_nologin(gdm:auth): cannot determine username
Oct 18 12:15:16 Eva gdm[3287]: pam_nologin(gdm:auth): cannot determine username

Debian :: Wireless Connection Dropping Out Constantly Or Failing Authentication?

Mar 12, 2011

Using Wicd and it keeps dropping out or telling me "bad password" when the password is in fact correct. I even know it works because the first couple of times it worked, but the connection wasn't sustained for more than a few seconds each time. My reasoning is my wireless is functional in Ubuntu, there's no reason it shouldn't be in Debian. Wireless network card is ASUS PCE-N13. Ralink driver is installed. WPA-supplicant is installed. Gnome Network Manager is also present, though I've heard that it doesn't support my particular situation.

Server :: Using Debootstrap To Install Foreign System

Feb 9, 2010

At work they gave me the following task (and i need some help from you guys!):At work we have a normal PC running Ubuntu 9.10 (32-bit), which works good.We also have a LaCie Ethernet Disk Mini v2, which runs embedded Linux (RedHat), but is so trimmed down, you can't use the disk we would like to use it.The task is this: On the X86 machine, make a bootable image for the ARM architecture and write it to a harddisk (which fits the LaCie offc.) so it can boot off it.Now i have done some investigation, but don't know how to combine it all:

- I can use debootstrap to create a minimal Debian system, but there comes the problem, you can't chroot into a foreign created system (i.e. X86 cannot chroot into ARM system).
- I can use QEMU, which can emulate a ARM processor, but can i use the image that QEMU uses as a normal image for a harddisk, so it would boot off it (when using dd to write it to a real harddisk)?
- Current kernels support the LaCie hardware (Marvell chipset)
- I know how to use tools such as dd, so if the image is generated i can write it to disk and have the LaCie boot from it.

The LaCie box has the following: 1 ARM9 ARMv5TEJ (266 MHz) CPU with 64 Mb RAM, Gigabit network controller and 1 usb host port, internal there is a sata port obviously.The only thing i want at the moment is to have the LaCie boot Debian and i can SSH into it, from there the rest is easy as pie.Is someone willing to help me accomplish this task? It would seriously mean and help alot!If all goes well and if i get all things up and running i would like to make a Howto of it and place that here, maybe it will be of some use !

Ubuntu Installation :: Debootstrap Can't Use Desktop CD As Package Source?

Sep 7, 2010

I'm running Karmic Desktop Live CD from a USB stick, and trying to install Ubuntu to a hard disk using debootstrap I get these errors:

$ sudo debootstrap karmic /dir file:///cdrom/


I: Retrieving Release
I: Validating Packages
I: Resolving dependencies of required packages...
I: Resolving dependencies of base packages...
W: Failure trying to run: chroot /dir mount -t proc proc /proc


I've read this bug report: [URL] basically, the discussion states that Desktop CD can not be used as package source for debootstrapping, I understand it is because of different file structure than the required for a repository, but would like to know more specific information about it, and if possible, how could I use the CD as package source for debootstrap?

Ubuntu Installation :: Install Karmic Xen DomU On Etch Dom0 Via Debootstrap?

Mar 10, 2010

I have an etch-based Xen server that has several Xen domU's on it. All the domU's are etch or lenny based, but I'd like to install a karmic guest. I use xen-tools to install my domU's - e.g., xen-create-image --debootstrap <etc.>After much googling, I've found bits and pieces of info that have gotten me closer to the goal, but the debootstrap script I have is for hoary (I think etch came with this), and I'm pretty sure this won't work.

If you have been able to successfully install a Karmic guest on an etch or lenny host, I'd be very grateful for pointers.

General :: How To Handle Warnings

Oct 15, 2010

I've been trying to understand issues that occur during a uClinux distribution build (so I can include such issues in a module I'm writing for students). My process has been to work through errors that occur due to missing packages, then remove the distribution and build it again to uncover what happens.One thing I notice is different sets of warnings within each iteration of making a new build. From the document here ( states, "A typical warning involves a variable being used before its value has been set."

So my question: is there a way to verify that the issue throwing the warning has been resolved by the end of the make build?And, is running make build again an option or could this cause problems within the build directories or image?
