Debian Configuration :: Unable To Change Brightness Of Laptop In Kpowersave?

Feb 17, 2010

I have installed kmilo, modprobed nvram and added line: KERNEL=="nvram", MODE="0666", GROUP="nvram" to 91-permissions.rules. I used command addgroup nvram and add me ( user tomasso ) to nvram group. Kmilo works fine but I am not able to change brightness of my laptop in kpowersave or by using fn key on my laptop keyboard. I am in powerdev group too.

Ubuntu :: Missing Kpowersave In 10.04?

May 31, 2010

I upgraded from 9.10 to 10.04 recently. I used kpowersave in 9.10 which allowed me to control the cpu and made my notebook run on battery for more than 3 hours again.

In 10.04 kpowersave has disappeared - or is unsupported? How can I control the CPU-speed, even when plugged-in? I want it to run normally on low speed (fan does not blow) and high-speed, when I really need it.

Debian Installation :: Frequent Hanging After Installation Of Debian Squeeze

Apr 15, 2011

I have and old PC and for last years i had Debian Lenny on that and it was working great but after the Squeeze release, i downloaded the first CD image and did a fresh installation but after this it boots up with no problem (i must say since in Squeeze installation the option of creating a floppy diskette was not working properly i use SuperGrubDisk2 to boot the Debian), but few seconds after logging in, the system hangs (or maybe only the X11 since i use a historic nVidia TNT2 Riva graphic card!).

Debian Installation :: Debian Squeeze On The Dell Mini 9?

May 22, 2010

This topic began in the Debian Development forum here I have successfully completed both the install and the after installation configuration. I have a fully functional system on this little baby, inspite of the fact that wireless (Broadcom bcm4312), ethernet (Realtek) and sound were initially broken.

There is a lot of assistance out there on the web. In the previous thread, I was having trouble installing any debian on a usb stick. The issues that needed resolving were 1. Bad stick

2. Incompatible kernels between boot.img and .iso

3. The method of copying .iso to the stick that finally worked was wget My first successful usb install was Lenny. Even though I upgraded the stock system with lenny-backports, I could not get wireless, ethernet or sound working the only connection I could get to the internet was through my 3g stick and that was not performing up to it's capability. I manually configured wvdial to get that working.

I attempted an upgrade to squeeze several times and each time the upgrade trashed the system. I finally found squeeze boot.img and .iso files from an eee pc blog. This allowed a fresh install of Squeeze and I was making progress. The little atom processor would not handle the b43-fwcutter driver, so I compiled one from the Broadcom site written especially for the atom processor. Now I had cable broadband supplied wireless. I got my ethernet working with help from the Gnome site technical specs on Network Manager. Simply changing ifupdown=false to ifupdown=true in the network manager config file.

Sound was activated by help from a blog entitled "Debian on the Dell Mini 9" My head is spinning now or I would be more specific and instructive on all I did to get this baby up and running. If anyone asks, I may do a how-to.

PS: Posted from that Dell Mini 9 running Debian Squeeze.

EDITED: Correction of typing errors.

Debian Installation ::Can Only Get To Command Prompt With Debian Squeeze

Feb 10, 2011

Debian Lenny worked just great. That was my first experience of Debian. The installer recognised all my hardware and the system was soon up and running brilliantly with a few tweaks. Confident of Debian's reliability, I decided to move to Debian 6 and did a fresh install, with downloads of the new operating system rather than a distribution upgrade. The installation routines have not worked for the same computer system. I don't know if its hardware not being recognised by Debian 6 that were recognised without a problem by Debian 5??

At first, the boot-up flipped at "Waiting for /dev to be fully populated," there was a kernal panic then Debian disappeared. No signal was sent to the monitor and I had to switch off the computer manually
I was able to look into the Debian 6 OS from Arch Linux, installed on different partitions of the same hard-drive. I am able to overwrite the Debian files as root from Arch.
My i686 machine has PATA IDE drives.

Why are 2) dbus and the 3) avahi-demon failing? I need to get them started first so that I can get an internet connection and try and correct the problem with X and the wrong Nvidia driver. Is there some configuration I can do either from Arch, where I am now, or the bash prompt on Debian? Thanks in advance.

Debian Configuration :: Replacement For HAL/FDI Files?

Jan 31, 2010

I run a Squeeze system and have recently updated various packages. As far as I can tell one of the changes has deprecated HAL FDI files (used for, among other things, configuring various input devices). I am hence wondering how one should go about configuring such devices --- without having to resort to an xorg.conf file.The two devices in question, an TouchPad and TrackPoint can both be configured via XInput when I log-in, however, it is somewhat tedious. Writing a log-on script to do this also seems rather hacky.So my question is: what is the most elegant way of configuring XInput devices?

Debian Installation :: Netinst - Fresh Installation Of Lenny Or Squeeze (either Or) And Not Install Exim?

Feb 26, 2010

I haven't used Debian in 1 year or so and would like to know if there is any possible way to do a fresh installation of Debian Lenny or Squeeze (either or) and not install Exim? I get to the package selection section of the Debian Installer and I de-select "Desktop Environment" & "Standard System" so nothing is selected and it still be default installs Exim. Is there a way to omit this from the install?

Debian Installation :: Squeeze On An Eee PC From USB?

Debian :: Revtex Installation On Debian Squeeze Os

Apr 26, 2011

On my squeeze OS I have texlive-latex3 installed and I wanted to install revtex package of the American Physical Society. While trying to install I was prompted to run #unzip revtex4-1-tds.zip -d /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/ However my machine does not have /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/ Instead it has /usr/local/share/texmf/ Will it be all right if I insert this location after -d ?

Debian Installation :: Squeeze: Apt-get Is Very Slow

Oct 21, 2010

Can't understand what's going on... Running 'apt-get update' I see that diffs are downloading with a normal speed (11.3 Mbyte by 49 seconds = ~ 227 Kbyte/sec - it's OK, my 'up' limit is 384 Kbyte/sec). But - running 'apt-get dist-upgrade' I see that packages are downloading w/ around 4000 byte/sec. WTF? What's the difference between downloading packages' diffs and packages themselves?

I've changed 6 mirrors - from oficcial (ftp.us.debian.org) to local (ftp.mgts.by). I've tried netselect-apt - no result. Still normall speed on 'apt-get update' and terrifying speed on 'apt-get dist-upgrade'.

Debian Installation :: Squeeze Under XenServer 5.6.0?

Dec 13, 2010

Are there any special steps I'd need to take to install Squeeze AMD64 on a server with two quad-core Xeons? I had no issues installing Server 2003 x64 and XP Pro x64 on the box, but I seem to remember seeing something somewhere about XenServer in the kernel images.

Debian Installation :: Squeeze Defaults To KDE?

Aug 13, 2011

I installed sqeeze on a netbook. Having no optical drive, I created a usb install disk with unetbootin on a laptop running Squeeze stable and the "Debian 6.0.1a DVD 1" iso. Much to my suprise it installed KDE. I expected, and wanted, Gnome. At the tasksel section I checked off "Graphical Desktop Env", "Laptop", and "Standard Sysytem Utilities". I found a similar post regarding this: viewtopic.php?f=17&t=60040 But in this case the OP installed with a netinstall iso and concluded a faulty mirror was the cause. This doesn't make sense in my case as I was using a DVD image which contains, afaik, Gnome, XFCE, and KDE

There surely must be a way to explicitly choose which desktop env. one wants installed. I realize this can be done by doing a base install and using apt-get; but I'm thinking there must be a simpler way using the installer. I tried the "Expert" install and only saw the generic "Graphical Desktop" option again. I figure I must be missing something somewhere. Also, can I get apt-get to recognize my unetbootin stick as a source to fetch from? I tried apt-cdrom and different entries in sources.list but I can't figure it out. It seems wasteful to me to download hundreds of MBs of packages from a mirror when I have them locally.

Debian Installation :: Squeeze Installation Freezes At Partitioning

Nov 8, 2011

I'm new to the Debian, but not to Linux. I've previously used Ubuntu for a few years, so I know something about how a successful installation should look like. I'm currently using Windows 7.

I downloaded the debian-6.0.3-amd64-gnome-netinst.iso from [URL] ...., and then made a USB pendrive using the Windows version of Unetbootin. The MD5 sum for the .iso-file was the correct one, b663727d7f5b572c329cea8e2ff5e29c.

I used the usual non-graphical setup, without any special options. The installation process went without hiccups until the "Starting up the partitioner" -screen freezes at "Scanning disks...". The bar stops at 50%. It never progresses any farther, even after an hour. It doesn't give any errors either. After I pressed Alt+F4, the last lines were:

Code: Select allpartman:   No matching physical volumes found
partman:   No volume groups found
partman:   Reading all physical volumes. This may take a while...
partman-lvm:   No volumegroups found

Exactly the same happens with firmware-6.0.3-amd64-netinst.iso too, or any of the live versions I tried. The result of graphical installation was also nothing. The USB pendrive created by LinuxLive USB Creator was nonoperative in exactly the same way.

The computer is brand new, without any previous OS installations. My desktop computer has the following parts:

CPU: AMD Phenom II X6 1055T, AM3, 2.8 GHz (HDT55TFBGRBOX)
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-970A-UD3, AM3+, AMD 970, DDR3, ATX
Videocard: Gigabyte GT 430
Memory: Kingston 2x2 GB, DDR3 1066MHz, CL7 (KVR1066D3N7K2/4G)
Harddrive: Samsung Spinpoint F3 HD103SJ
Powersupply: OCZ 600W ModXstream, ATX 2.2, (OCZ600MXSP-EU)

Debian :: Setup A Fresh Installation Of Squeeze?

Feb 24, 2011

I've just setup a fresh installation of Debian Squeeze and am trying to configure the firewall. I ran a search for iptables and got the following results:

debserv:~# find / -name iptables
/etc/bash_completion.d/iptables
/sbin/iptables
/usr/share/doc/iptables

[Code]....

When I run an iptables command to add a rule and reboot the new configuration is lost even after I have run the iptables-save command. I can't work out where the iptables config file is/should be stored so I could try editing the file with vi.

Debian Installation :: Power Off While Installing Squeeze?

Apr 5, 2010

When installing squeeze from either a dvd or cd (i've burned loads to see if it was the problem) my computer goes through the installation, until the dreaded step of "selecting and installing software" where the installation stops, and my computer turns itself off because of a kill signal sent to everything. I've tried booting with fb=false, and for some reason acpi=off, and neither of them solved the problem (acpi=off caused my laptop to turn off unexpectedly earlier) (HP 6735s, AMD64 using Turion X2, 4GB Ram)

Debian Installation :: Cannot Install Squeeze Live DVD

Sep 15, 2010

A Linux user for about 10 years, distro hopping for half of them. Finally found peace with PCLinuxOS (great distro), and MintLinux. When Mint went over to Debian, I thought why not try the original, so here I am.Booted the dvd, checked everything was working well (excellently, actually), and started the install over an existing PCLinuxOS system (dual booting with XP). First time installed while inside the gnome system, from the desktop icon, second and subsequent times from the welcome screen after boot (only text modes were available).In all cases, everything goes fine until I partition and install the packages. Partitioning is no secret to me, unless there is a "Debian way" of doing it: went through "guided partitioning," and chose the existing PCLinuxOS partitions, 37 Gb for /, ext3 (tried ext4 later with same results), and 2 Gb for swap, both on sda (sda1 and sda5). This is a full hard-disk, just for Linux. The other disk is for XP (sdb).

Tried formatting existing partitions, erasing contents of disk, and keeping as is. In all cases, when partitioning is done, the system installation fires up and I see all packages being transferred (up to 100%). Then I have a pop-up window telling me to continue to package manager, which I do, but then I get a message saying that I am trying to install on an "unclean target," over an existing installation (even after fully erasing the disks). It asks whether to continue or not and, whatever I do, I'm taken back to system install again, and see the progress go up to 100% and the same question again.

If I go back to the install menu and ignore the message, jumping to installing grub, I get an error message saying that grub install has failed, and that's it. I can't progress further because of these error messages.If I ignore all and boot without the live dvd, I get a prompt and nothing else, and I can't even use XP. Basically, I'm stuck unless I install another distro again to have a working system.First searched this forum and Google to get answers to this problem, but couldn't find anything applicable to my case.

Debian Installation :: Swap Space For 64 Bit Squeeze ?

Oct 31, 2010

I am currently running 32 bit ubuntu in my PC with 2.5 GB RAM, Intel Pentium Dual Core inside. I am coming to debian soon. I will be installing 64 bit squeeze. Now I have 3 GB of swap space. I do satellite image processing. Therefore what is the recommended swap space for me with the kind of work I do. RAM is in very small amount but as of now I have to stay with it.

Also I am interested to know would KDE be an overkill for my machine. Will I run short of memory when I start image processing?

Debian Installation :: Install From Squeeze Live CD / DVD

Jan 2, 2011

I burned an .iso of a recent Squeeze Live DVD - KDE edition. I was checking it out but I'm not sure it's reliable for installing.I was wondering if anyone has tried it or could comment.I noticed a few things that was a bit disconcerting.One, there were a lot of 'question marks' in the kickback menu.Is that normal?Two, when you (I) try to reboot the system or otherwise 'leave' the live state, it doesn't reboot properly.Some distributions will 'shut down' and then give you a prompt for taking out your CD or DVD and then there is some script or program that reboots the machine for you. But, the Debian Live DVD I used didn't do that. It's a recent one, dated Dec. 20.What happened is that it just looped back and re-started.There was no prompt or even much of a delay. I couldn't open the optical drive tray at any time.I had to cold restart the machine so I could take the DVD out.

I was disappointed since I thought it is a good project and a worthwhile venture to try and have a live media option for installing the later editions of Debian such as Squeeze or if they can keep up progress, whatever edition it's at.I am a bit hesitant to try this version for a true install so I am wondering what others say.I thought I should go for the 'desktop Squeeze/Testing AMD-64-KDE' CD ISO instead?There's no live media but I have tried the live DVD so it looked okay other than the two issues mentioned.

Debian Installation :: Squeeze Won't Take Root Password ?

I finally got Sueeze installed and it works great for my user account. It won't accept my root password and so I can not do anything as root. This is strickly a home desktop setup and I am the only user. I have a working Ubuntu 10.10 in the ajacent partition. How can I change (or reinstall) my root password. Everything I've found says to boot single user and I have, but I still need the root password in Debian.

Debian Installation :: Best Way To Upgrade From Lenny To Squeeze

Feb 7, 2011

A week or so ago, I downloaded the current stable and burned it. (lenny)And on the 5th I started installing and finished on the 6th.I then see squeeze was released LOL.I have started using the system and would rather not start over from scratch.(but I will if it is the *best* way to go)I am coming from Ubuntu but I do know my way around the system...

All the threads I see start off by editing the sources list to change lenny to squeezeIs there an easier way?I've looked for a HOWTO but did not see one.I am not looking to stop any part of the system from upgrading.In ubuntu I have gone from distro to distro, but that option is not offered.I checked "Software Sources" -> Updates I do not see the Ubuntu option of allowing distro updates ot be offered.

Debian Installation :: Bad Burn On Squeeze Rescue CD?

Feb 12, 2011

Looking at the versions of Squeeze available on Live CD's from live.Debian.net I noticed a Rescue CD. I decided to download and burn the 386 version in order to get a look at it. I did so and checked the MD5Sum. It indicated a good download. I then used k3b (which I prefer because it has proven to be somewhat more reliable than Brasero) to burn the iso file. I did it at the lowest speed k3b allows (10X for CDs) and asked for verification of the burn. The disk was verified.I then booted the disk and the disk failed to load citing a read error at block 144640, sector 1157120.

I downloaded another version of the same iso file and again checked the MD5Sum, which was good. I again burned with k3b in the same manner as above and got the exactly the same error.I have had no indication of any problem with my TSST CD/DVD drive and I doubt very much that two consecutive Memorex CDs would be bad. What am I missing here?One other question: Is there a way to check the MD5sum on a disk that has been burned? Should it be the same as the MD5Sum shown for the iso file? I see that I can check the MD5Sum for individual files on the burned CD. Given the very large number of files, which one might it make sense to check?
