Debian :: Not Starting After Installing Splashy ?

Mar 2, 2011

After installing and configuring splashy, my system doesn't start. There appears the image of the theme I selected with splashy (which is the debian logo and a loading bar), but the bar doesn't load and it appears for just a second and then there's a black screen. When pressing F2 for text mode, it just stays at *Starting Boot splash manager splashy and nothing happens

BTW I use grub2 what can I do? should I edit /boot/grub/grub.conf? (I supose the file is there, isn't it?)

I thought i would be able to access and modify the files on my system with an ubuntu live cd, but I couldn't, is there another way to access the grub files to modify them if I can't boot debian? (and I don't have another OS installed)

Second virtual host file


And my hosts file


# The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts

Debian Installation :: Moving Debian Install From Virtual Machine To Physical

Feb 20, 2010

I have been learning Debian by using a virtual machine. After fine-tuning my installation procedure, I decided to copy that installation to my physical system. The hard drive already has another Linux based system installed. I plan to dual boot.After copying files I updated fstab and menu.lst.The partition scheme between the virtual and physical environments are similar, but the partitions are not mapped exactly the same.Thus the Debian system on the physical hard drive fails to boot simply because the initrd is created for the root partition location on the virtual machine. The initrd created in the virtual machine is looking for the root file system on /dev/hda1 whereas on my physical drive the new location is /dev/sda7.How can I rebuild the initrd on the physical system? I started to use the installation DVD in rescue mode, but I did not get too far.

Debian :: Debian Etch - Virtual Server - GUI?

Jun 18, 2010

I am renting a virtual server which is running Linux Debian Etch. I have access through the root account.

I am very new to virtual servers, and also very new to Debian Etch. I am happy I found this forum when trying to research on the Internet.

The things I need to know are:
- Comes Debian Etch with a GUI (graphical user interface) which I can use on the rented virtual server?
- And if not, I would like to ask the community here if there are any GUIs which I could install to that server, and how?

I want to be able to access the server in a much easier way than to have to type each command. I want to use that server to host domains, as soon as I am more self-confident with Debian Etch.

Debian Installation :: Installing Debian On IBook G4 / PowerPC

Jul 17, 2010

I have downloaded Debian/PowerPC_lenny from The netinst CD or the minimal CD for some reason doesn't boot. When I put it in the CD-ROM it doesn't begin whatever it has to do. Do I need to do anything? I restart my iBook G4 (1.33 GHz PowerPC G4) several times and held the "c" button (for CD-ROM) but nothing has happened. I wonder if someone can help me begin the installation process.

FYI, I have partitioned my hard drive into two volumes. I would like to install Debian in one of them. I *do not* want my Mac OS X to get disappeared in the Debian installation process. So please help me if you would as to how I can (1) boot Debian minimal CD and (2) install Debian on one of the two volumes I have on my iBook.

Debian Configuration :: Virtual Server Not Rebooting?

Jul 6, 2015

I have a rented vserver running at Strato [URL]. It came preinstalled with Debian 7. I upgraded it to Debian 8, what seemed to run fine, all services running. The problems came up when I tried to reboot the server to test the init system. It just does not come up, I cannot ping it, nothing. I can boot into the rescue system, mount the system partitions and chroot in to the filesystem. In this state I also can run my services, including apache2 and mysql. In the syslog I find nothing about the reboot. Now I need to reboot ino the normal system. I already tried to resume to sysvinit without success.

Debian Configuration :: Make Mailboxes For Each Virtual Host On Server?

Mar 1, 2010

I'm using Debian 5 with Exim 4 on my VPS. My purpose is to make mailboxes for each virtual host on my server. What do I have: 1. Exim is set correctly - receiving mail from [URL]... is successfull. 2. Mail for [URL]... is delivered, and the mail for [URL]... too. But [URL]... is the site written to /etc/hosts (it's localhost), and [URL]... is virtual host. But mail from both boxes writes to /var/mail/mail. Now what do I need: 1. Make mail for [URL]... store in [URL].... and mail for [URL].. store in www/Maildir. 2. Make mailboxes like [URL].... to receive mail by Thunderbird. 3. Set passwords for [URL]... and [URL]... (I don't want to enter my system user/root passwords).

Debian Configuration :: Nginx And Httpd Virtual Package On Jessie Server

Oct 24, 2015

I've installed Nginx-full on a debian jessie server and want to install Wordpress, but for some reason Nginx-full isn't being seen as providing the httpd virtual package, so wordpress insists on installing apache.

According to everything I can find, nginx-full provides the httpd virtual package and this shouldn't happen. Is this a bug?

Debian Configuration :: Both HTTP And HTTPS On Same Server? (Apache Virtual Hosts)

Oct 30, 2015

How to best manage both http and https pages on the same apache-server without conflicts. For example, if i have both 000-default.conf and 000-default-ssl.conf pointing to, and don't want users who visit without specifically type the https-prefix to be redirected to the https-page - how to handle users using browserplugins such as https-everywhere etc?

Another option would be to create a subdomain and have users who want to reach the ssl site to have to type ssl. I have tested several things with https everywhere enabled in my own browser, and it seems really hard to make this working the way i want, in one way or another i always end up getting redirected to the ssl-site automatically.

The reason i need this to work is because i run one site that i don't care much about SSL, that is the "official" part of that site, and i also host some things for friends and family on the SSL-part. This would not have been a problem if it wasn't that i use self-signed certificates for my ssl-site and the major user become afraid when a certificate-warning pops up in their browser and therefor leave the site.

Debian Installation :: Testing Netinst Network Down On First Boot In Virtual Box

Jul 11, 2015

I'm using the debian testing netinst image (from below url) and trying to install on virtualbox (part of a debian testing vagrant base box build pipeline I've got). This hasn't worked properly for last couple of weeks. Host system is also debian testing.URL....

if I accept all the defaults through the installer (apart from small details like timezone), I end up with a system in which the network does not work. It seems that /etc/network/interfaces has eth0 but the actual network card is called enp0s3, so no network comes up at first boot (despite that the network works fine during the actual install). I can easily fix it after the first boot by editing /etc/network/interfaces and replacing eth0 by enp0s3 and then doing an ifup. This is fine for a workaround but begs the question of why does it fail in the first place.

I have googled a bit and found this thread: [URL] .... which describes a similar issue, and there are other threads out there describing the change.

The udev change seems reasonable enough, but also some package involved in basic debian netinst installation has a bug given that the default install path results in a broken system. Question is, is there a bug already reported (I couldn't find it), or else, which package should I report the issue against? End result should be basic install does not require editing after boot to fix the network.

Debian Installation :: Virtual Consoles Are No Longer 25x80 On Squeeze?

Jun 12, 2011

On Debian lenny, when I wanted to go from X to a virtual console, I would type (for example) <Ctrl> <Alt> <F1>. Then I got the traditional 25x80 screen, which is wonderful in bad lighting conditions.

On Debian squeeze, virtual consoles are no longer 25x80. They fit way more than 25x80 characters on the screen. They go through the frame buffer, which I guess I must keep that way because otherwise it would ruin X.

But I want my 25x80 back, for those bad lighting conditions.

If I set /etc/default/console-setup to FONTFACE="VGA", at least I get a readable font.

ANd if I set /etc/default/console-setup to SCREEN_WIDTH=80 and SCREEN_HEIGHT=25, they do the obvious, but the characters are just as small, and the data is all in the upper left corner of the screen.

How do I get 25x80 so it fills the screen, as in the days of lenny, without removing /dev/fb0?

Debian Installation :: Installing Debian On The Second Drive Without Messing With The Windows Drive?

Mar 21, 2011

I was wondering. Up till now whenever I installed Linux I've either dual booted with Windows off 1 HDD, or installed straight Linux by itself. However, I recently purchased a second HDD for my computer, and was wondering how I could go about installing Debian on the second drive without messing with the windows drive? Right now I have Windows 7 installed on my 1TB drive, and would like to try and install Debian on my second (750GB) drive. Would it be possible to install Debian on the second drive, install grub on that drive's MBR so I could choose between Debian and Win7 without touching the MBR on the 1TB Windows drive?

I'm paranoid about messing up my Seven installation, but really want to be able to load into Debian as well.

Debian :: Cups Not Starting With The Server / Getting Error Unable To Read Configuration File '/etc/cups/cupsd.conf' - Exiting?

Feb 24, 2011

cups does not start with the server. When I try to start from the terminal I get the error message

cupsd: Unable to read configuration file '/etc/cups/cupsd.conf' - exiting!
cupsd: Child exited with status 1!

The log files show nothing. cupsd.conf exists. It is user - root and group - root with permissions set at 0644.

My interpretation of this is that the program is not launching from either boot or terminal for a fundamental reason. I do not quite see what that reason is .

CentOS 5 :: Installing Virtual Server ?

Apr 12, 2009

I intend to setup a Linux Virtual Server cluster behind a firewall. I have two machines which will run Centos 5.3 and act as the routers. I have two other boxes for now, also running Centos 5.3 which will run the server applications. All these machines are connect on my local network behind a firewall. I will ask for the two LVS router machines to be granted access through the firewall for web access (port 80) and ssh access (port 22). These two ports should be sufficient for me to receive my web application requests, as I will use NAT translation on the LVS machines to redirect to the applications on the real servers.

I've read the documentation for the LVS but I would be grateful if someone could give me some guidance on the whether I will have any problem with the firewall and the LVS routers machines, as I have described it above. Do I need to ask for anything other than access through the firewall for these two machines. They will get DHCP IP's I guess. Also, its not quite clear to me where the LVS router machines LAN cards get connected. Do all of the NIC cards connect to my local network, or do I need an independent hub to connect the second NIC of the LVS router machines, and as such use static IP address for them on this private network.

Debian Multimedia :: Installing VNC Server - Few Untangle Boxes Around

May 4, 2011

I'm sort of an incidental Debian user -- Untangle installs with a customized version of Debian (2.6.26) and I have a few Untangle boxes around. I've searched with Google and also in this forum for some guidance in installing VNC Server and have run into a brick wall. Basically I need to see my Untangle boxes' GUI remotely on Windows mostly to run Wireshark. There are some X clients that install on Windows, but I've not got any of them to work well enough to rely on.

I use VNC routinely between Windows boxes, so I thought maybe that would be a better option. Unfortunately, all the instructions I've found to install the VNC server on Debian have been inoperative. They typically say something like "apt-get install vncserver" which results in an error because it can't find "vncserver" anywhere. Now I know that this has been done by others, so it's clearly possible.

Debian :: Installing Additional MIBs For Specific HW (SNMP Server)

May 8, 2010

I have debian Lenny as an server I would like for monitoring of some network components ( switches, printers, routers ... ) and at

/usr/share/snmp/mibs I have
/usr/share/snmp/mibs# ls -l
total 1844
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 17455 2008-12-16 18:22 AGENTX-MIB.txt

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 36959 2008-12-16 18:23 BRIDGE-MIB.txt ....
ls -l | wc -l shows 66, what means 66 differen mibs.

snmp related packages I have installed are as :
dpkg -l | grep ii | grep snmp
ii libgsnmp0 0.2.0-2.1 an SNMP library implementation based on glib and gnet
ii libsnmp-base 5.4.1~dfsg-12 SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) MIBs and documentati

ii snmp 5.4.1~dfsg-12 SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) applications
ii snmpd 5.4.1~dfsg-12 SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) agents

My question is, how I can install additional mibs ( for Cisco, Procurve, etc ) for other hw I could have ? What is procedure. I browsed debian package base and I could not find some more packages related to snmp that could supply more mibs.

Debian Installation :: Stops At "Starting Up The Partitioner"?

Aug 17, 2011

At 50% exactly, the installer stops at this point. If I press Alt+F4, the last line states "partman-lvm: No volume groups found". I've tried the full CD install and netinstall. Both the same error. This notebook (a Dell Inspiron z11) i bought it from a friend and he had previously installed Ubuntu on it (he actually had aual boot with Ubuntu and M$.Win.7)When he asked me if I wanted the notebook like that I told him to format the whole HDD so I could install Debian from scratch. So i thought "Maybe my friend screwed up" So I boot up with GParted and reformatted the whole drive on Fat32.

Went back to boot with the netinstall, and got the exact same error. So, after that, I boot my bro's desktop with a Live Ubuntu CD to make the bootable USB (previous attempts were made on M$.Win). So, with this USB made on Ubuntu, guess what? Yes, sir, I got the very same error. I tried to install Ubuntu with the same USB (every time reformatting the USB before making it bootable) and the installation stops after i select the key map. I press quit, and it sends me to the Live version, no problems at all (except that it does not accept the password for my wireless network) Maybe I'm doing something wrong? I've used Universal-USB-Installer-, tuxboot-windows-25 and unetbootin-win-549 to make the USB bootable with the Debian netinstall, all with the same results.

Debian Installation :: Installing From USB Stick

May 21, 2015

I tried to build a bootable USB stick using Code: Select alldd if=~/Desktop/linux/debian-8.0.0-i386-xfce-CD-1.img of=/dev/disk1 bs=1m as mentioned here: URL... but this does not work on my MacBook 3.1, late 2007 model (yes, I am using rEFIt and my CD drive is dead). The error message upon trying to boot from the USB stick using rEFIt says something like 'unable to load bootia32.efi'.

The workaround: I took the "bootX64.efi" from here:URL... on the USB drive and renamed it as "boot.efi".I copied the "debian-8.0.0-i386-xfce-CD-1.iso" to "/efi/boot" on the USB drive and renamed it as "boot.iso".So now my USB stick has 2 files only: "/efi/boot/boot.efi" and "/efi/boot/boot.iso" and nothing else.Now I was able to boot from the USB stick get into a GRUB prompt.

Code: Select allloopback loop (hd0,1)/efi/boot/boot.iso
grubconfig (loop)/boot/grub/grub.cfg

The installer starts fine and I choose my locale, keyboard etc. until it starts to scan for the CD drive and I face...The error message says that a CD was not found (as expected).I fired up the shell offered by the installer and mounted the USB stick to "/mnt/usb" like this:

Code: Select allmount /dev/hdb1 /mnt/usb

It works and I can see my ISO file in "/mnt/usb/efi/boot/boot.iso".I tried to mount the ISO image to "/dev/cdrom":
Code: Select allmount -o loop -t iso9660 /mnt/usb/efi/boot/boot.iso /dev/cdrom

waited for a while and killed (control + c) the process and found that my "/dev" folder has been flooded with files named like the string "loop" followed by some digits (loop1245, loop8766 etc.).Can the Debian installer be somehow tricked into believing that the ISO file on the USB stick is the mounted CD?
