Debian Installation :: File System Errors - Cant Access Logs

May 7, 2011

i get file system errors on boot up. found logs in /var/logs but cant access them. second best thing i can do is to re-install debian but no one seems to want to say how thats done. my disk wont run in wine (some error i dont remember) so i cant use my CD /flashdrive to re-install.

1) i need to read the log files and try to fix the install
2) if i cant fix i need to know how to wipe the OS and do a fresh install

Debian Configuration :: File Access Logs - Functionality Like Already Built Into Samba?

Sep 7, 2010

wants some sort of logging capability on the system. to have a log of every change to every file, although that might be a bit unwieldy. perhaps a simpler compromise would be some way of monitoring a few specific folders, and tracking all changes to them, including the user that did so. Particularly important is that it should be possible to work with access through samba, as we want to track what users on the network are creating or changing files. Is there functionality like this already built into debian or samba? is there a useful additional app to gather this information? or am I going to need to be grep'ing log files to present something useable?

Debian Configuration :: Awstats Access To Apache Logs?

Mar 10, 2011

In a squeeze box, I installed awstats and it's working like a charm. Its cron job update the awstats database every 10 minutes (as it runs as root). But I would like to be able to update the statistics from the browser as well. So I setup everything as required and I gave "read" access to "others" to every apache log file. Now, a couple of questions came to my mind:

1. Am I compromising server's security giving "read" access to "others" to apache log files?

2. Instead of giving "read" access to "others", I could add www-data user to adm group (as apache log files are owned by root:adm and permissions are rw-r----). Is this more secure than giving "read" access to "others"? 3. If the option would be giving "read" access to "others" at the end, a log file would be owned by root:adm and its permissions be rw-r--r--. As apache rotates its log files, when Apache create a new log file, does it preserve the permissions (rw-r--r--) or create it with the default permissions (rw-r-----)?

Debian :: System Logs Itself Out While Unattended / Stop It To Do So?

Jul 23, 2011

Well it turns out my system has logged out more then once on its own. I had the system updated and upgraded from 7-3-11 and it did this about once a week. On 7-18-11 I did a full update and upgrade and it logged out a few times in a couple of hours. It does it while I am away and the system is in screen saver mode. I used my partition clone and restored the system back to 7-3-11. Has any one else ever had such an issue?

Installation :: Is There A File System That Can "work Around" HDD Errors

Aug 19, 2010

My Dad has a work laptop, but it is on its last leg because since he doesn't work in the office, they don't believe he needs a good laptop. Now, hand-me-down laptops are fine, but the problem with this one is the hard drive is going bad to the point where to load anything takes ages (and I'm pretty sure it is the hard drive because when I used Code: dd it stopped because of errors, and some S.M.A.R.T programs for windows showed problems.

My question is this, is there a file system for linux that can put up with those faults without slowing the PC to a crawl (and I mean crawl, 5 minutes minimum to start up thunderbird and get emails, and any ubuntu/kubuntu/xubuntu through Wubi ok an unbelievable amount of time to start using ext2/3 you need to know anything else, just ask.BTW, if it matters to anyone, about a year ago the PC worked better, and now stuff takes longer to load, which is partly why I ruled out graphics or processor problems.

Debian Multimedia :: When Open Some Video On The Net The System Logs Out

When i open some video on the net, the system logs out (especially when i open ..... video). I suspect its flash (current version is 10.02). Is there any way how to fix this? Or how to downgrade to minor version.

Another thing as well. By default i have GNOME version. Just installed the KDE full package from synpatic. when i try to log in with kde manager same like the flash, it logs me out to welcome screen.

Debian Multimedia :: Graphical Application To View Logs On Remote System

Jan 16, 2015

I have a web server that hosts multiple websites. Am looking for an application that can be run on my workstation and makes it possible to watch Apache logs live.

It should have a tabbed interface. When I launch the application, it has to connect to my server and should automatically open all access.log and error.log files and display all changes in real time (similar to tail -f command).

Does anything like this exist?

I'm tired of logging in many times in Konsole and executing tail -f commands to see parallel logs.

Debian Installation :: Errors On Boot: "fsck.ext2: No Such File"?

Jan 19, 2011

I've installed Debian Lenny from USB with the small 8MB netboot image. I only chose "Standard system" in Tasksel during install, to get a clean, minimal install. I also chose for LVM and a separate partition for /home. I have one 1.5TB SATA drive in this machine.

Now everything seems to install just fine, but when I reboot I get the following error:

fsck.ext2: No such file or directory while trying to open /dev/sdb1

I get offered to enter a maintenance shell, or press CTRL-D to resume booting. When I do, the system boots fine and nothing seems wrong. But it is inconvenient, because I can't reboot the machine without physically going to it to press CTRL-D on the keyboard

I have googled for this error and it is mentioned on several forums, but they were all related to other things specific to their installs/machines.

(ps. the only slightly strange thing during install is that the Debian installer included my 1GB USB thumbdrive when it shows all the drives and the partitions before formatting. I removed the USB thumbdrive directly after install, but if I plug it in, I still get the error)

These are the errors during boot:

I've only installed Debian on my laptops, which never had any problems.

Debian Installation :: Redirecting All Logs To Different Location

Jul 27, 2010

So 1 year ago I installed Lenny, but in the process of installation during the splitting of the drive I have mistakenly set a seperate parition for "/var/logs" instead of "/var/log". Is there any way to redirect all the logs to this seperate partition (var/logs) or it's better to go through the whole trouble* of installing Lenny again? *the trouble because it was hell of a problem to fix grub that didn't recognize SmartArray RAID (cciss driver), the problem is that I don't really remember how I fixed it. Symbolic link won't help since physically it will still be on the other partition. Do I have any other option?

Ubuntu Installation :: Mythbuntu System Hangs After Regular System Update: "out Of Memory" Errors

Aug 4, 2010

I have Mythbuntu 10.04 installed on an exclusive HTPC and working great... until tonight. After letting the system update some packages (161 packages if I remember right), I suddenly have an issue where the graphical system won't start. After researching I found three error messages that might be causing that.

1. At the start of splash screen I see "UUID=xxxxxxxCD7 not ready yet or not present" I checked in /etc/fstab and found that this is the swap partition. I don't remember seeing this before so this could be the culprit.

2. I'm not at the computer in question right now but I saw a Plymouth error about "mountall" and then the message "plymouth command failed". Not sure if this could be the main error.

3. after a while (usually ca. 1-2 min) I receive thousands of errors of the kind "out of memory"... "kill process XXXX" (process vary wildly e.g. dbus-daemon, mysql, etc)... "process killed"..."respawning"

After error 3, I'm not able to switch to graphical console (ctrl-alt-F7). If I was in the graphical console at this moment, I simply can't switch to the CLI console. I'm always afraid of updating my system since I've seen lots of things breaking afterwards (usually the proprietary graphic drivers) but this is really strange.

Debian Programming :: Correcting SRT File OCR Errors

Mar 2, 2012

I've generated some srt subtitle files using gocr from pgm files used in DVD's. The ocr program gets confused between lower case L and upper case i and sees them as the same thing. This results in words with capital i's in them instead of lower case L.

What is the best way to automate the correction without a spell checker? I tried sed, but it's difficult to tell between the i's that you want and those that need changing. I figured that any word that consists solely of capital i's is ok, e.g. Roman Numerals, but any capital i not at the beginning of a word needs changing.

Debian Installation :: Jessie On Btrfs File System With Subvolumes

Feb 9, 2015

My goal ist to install Debian Jessie on a drive with a btrfs subvolume scheme. This is my first time using btrfs and also my first Jessie installation.

My experience is, that partman creates btrfs file systems but doesn´t support btrfs subvolumes (why not?).

I successfully created btrfs subvolumes manually in a shell session during ("expert") installation and manually mounted them to the desired mount points in /target. Installation went through until grub2 installation, which failed.

Is there a best practice to install Debian (Jessie) on a btrfs file system with subvolumes? I want to use subvolumes for /, /home, /var/log and /var/lib/mysql.

Debian Installation :: Encrypted LVM Install - No Root File System Detected

Jun 1, 2013

I'm a long time user of Debian, but I'm having trouble with my partitioning process. Here is where I currently stand:

I am installing the latest Wheezy build. I am trying to install debian with an encrypted LVM that spans two hard disks.

My partitioning layout is as:

1. /home
2. /root
3. swap
4. /boot

I then added partitions 1, 2 and 3 to a physical volume group. I then took that physical volume group and added it to a logical volume. Then I encrypted the logical volume, leaving the /boot partition untouched. I was under the assumption that the only partition the system needed free to reach the loading of the LVM is the /boot partition, as it holds the files necessary for booting. But when I attempt to finalize the disk, it gives an error stating, "No root file system detected". That would be an issue as it is currently sitting inside the encrypted LV. Am I wrong in including the root partition in the encrypted LV?

What is the best way of having as little of my file system non-encrypted as possible while still allowing a proper boot?

Ubuntu :: Cannot Access My File System

Dec 3, 2010

I was running some programs on Thursday and also installing something via the software center when I started getting strange errors. Then I kept getting told that the file system was read only (when I tried to save my work in the applications and while installing software). I clicked the restart button and got a blank popup (no restart or cancel buttons). So I press the power button and it shutsdown but quicker than usual. Power is back up and it goes to busybox.

Ok so I think this is easy to fix, just boot off CD open gparted and perform a check on the filesystem. It happened before and this solved it. But when I opened gparted and tried to check the disk I get:GParted 0.6.2

Debian :: Fresh Installation With Many Errors

Jan 15, 2011

I've been using Linux ( Ubuntu from like 4 months ) the first time of my life and I just love Linux, but I just feel that I need to switch to Debian like its the best and the powerful distro. I've installed Debian pretty well, then when rebooting it. I cant find my Ubuntu distro on the grub loader, then when I enter to my Debian distro. I just have that black screen with the note (out of range), so I've went to Google but as u know I am still a rookie, so I could avoid this problem by using.

alt + ctrl + ( - ), so I went to connecting the internet maybe I could download that nvidia drivers so it may fix the problem, but the most shock is that the internet isn't working with me. I am pretty sure that I've entered the IPs correctly but I really don't know whats the main problem is, with Ubuntu its much easier and it really worked quickly but as I said I just feel something for Debian , something that attract me to it.

Ubuntu Servers :: HTTP Response Into Apache Access Logs

Jul 6, 2011

I am new to web server support. I have a request from my management to modify the logging slightly. Effectively I need to redirect a custom string from our http response into the apache access logs. When a user navigates to our site they receive a "dye" number that is associated with them. This number follows them to whatever cluster they are directed too. The string is formatted as such, com-company-dye: d0a2#6dfce. I need that that header dye to appear in the access logs so we can use that dye number as a key for troubleshooting issues though out our various monitoring systems.

Ubuntu :: Access A File System On A Hard Drive From A Live CD?

Feb 7, 2010

What i really need to know is if there is a way to access a Ubuntu file system on a hard drive from a live CD. When i acess it now it just shows the Windows files on it, and i cant access the Ubuntu partition. What happened was this: I was trying to install Ubuntu on an external hard drive. I moved all the settings to the Hard drive so i didnt think it would affect my other drives. I mustve missed one of them because insteading of loading GRUB like it normally does, it came up with GRUB error 21 and did nothing. I tried to fix it, but nothing worked. I finally decided to unplug everything except the external and install it from there, so id atleast have a functioning desktop. As it turns out, my comp doesnt suport USB booting. So the only way i can use my computer is by Live CD. I was trying to fix things so i had both hard drives power supply unplugged. being slightly drowsy from staying up late that night, I plugged them in while my computer was on. the first one went in just fine, no problems. The second one though, also my master drive, i was having troubles pluging in. while i was turning it to fit in, it made a big spark and shocked my master drive. That drive had my MBR and Windows on it. Now It cant find a MBR, and i cant access the ubuntu partition on my slave drive. Is there any way to save this?? im 99.9% sure ive screwed myself over hardcore epically, but im hoping to save at least 1/2 my data.
