I'm looking at [URL] and I see 8 DVD's each approx 4GB. Why is there one DVD for ubuntu and 8 DVDs for debian? What is on all those DVDs? Is there any way to copy those iso files to a thumb drive instead of a DVD and install from the thumb drive? I have a couple of 32GB micro SD in the mail soon.
This is more times I have encountered, with my browsers - Epiphany, Iceweasel,. GNU/Linux Debian SID. Though it is not consistent - on and off. I don't know how to recreate the environment. But though it says, it is downloading but when I go to the folder/directory, it's not there....this is frustrating as sometimes my download takes a while to find out that after it download, nothing is there. litterally nothing.Maybe it's in a temp folder but I don't know where to look for it -- (Epiphany).
I am running debian lenny running apache (latest) i am trying to make a webserver. i put the index.html file in my www folder. it shows up when i go to my site (localhost) i put an index.php file in my www folder and when i try to go to my site it Downloads the index.php file instead of showing it.
I have not been able to write to DVDs since the install except for once when luck seemed to play more a part than anything else. Does anyone have a fix for this?Well, after letting it sit and sit and sit, it looks like it does write the data. But, it's writing about 1/2 of a DVD for just 2 500K files.
Well Ubuntu 10.10 desktop edition looks great and I am way over the plain old xp, plus Ubuntu is safer and sexier. I have downloaded 10.10 desktop and it saves as a .iso, then when I open it it runs my cd burner. I have it saved on a CD and my portable hard drive. I can not run the .iso or use the wubi. I have extracted the .iso and tried running the usb creator program but it does not work. Does anyone have a solution other than buying the ubuntu cd?
At the Debian download web page, there are many choices for an installation CD. There also is a 4 DVD set. I presume the CD is to get a base system installed. I presume the 4 DVD set is the whole ball of wax.
Yet presumptions are not always a good thing. So I would appreciate an explanation about the difference between the two options or just point my nose to the appropriate link. I browsed the Debian online docs, but I did not find an explanation. I am getting older too, so perhaps I saw the explanation and clicked right on by.
VLC used to work fine for me. I ran a DVD in Movie Player and somehow that seems to have broken VLC. Now neither of them work. Starting VLC in the terminal I get this error when trying to read a DVD: [URL]
Can I use all packages in Debian 5 Lenny DVDs (1-6) without any problem in my Ubuntu Server 10.04? For example using apt-cdrom and apt-update, apt-install xxxx ?. Wouldn't affect these actions for potential errors?
I swear Ubuntu's download pages are getting harder and harder to find things in.I help with a local LUG that holds a Clinic for Linux newbies. One of my tasks is to maintain all the latest popular distros and all the versions thereof. usually recommend Ubuntu to newcomers, but people bring all kinds of computers, many of which need Lubuntu or Xubuntu, yet others want Kubuntu, and on and on. I need all the flavors of Ubuntu.I prefer to download by torrent because it is faster with my connection. I found a page with torrents for 10.04 and 10.10 for Ubuntu desktop, alternate and server, but I'll be darned if I can find torrents for Netbook, Kubuntu, Lubuntu, Xubuntu and others.
I am trying to make a backup copy of a DVD without success. k3b simply stays there silent doing nothing and I have to terminate the application. Is there a way to make DVD copies if one needs to?EDIT:I am using the home partition for caching as it is the biggest one on the disks; /tmp is too small.
I'm thinking on trying Debian, I searched through their website and I went to the download site and I see there are 5 dvds torrent files? Which one should I download? I mean is debian that heavy that i need 5 dvds to get everything installed? By the way is there a kde version? I want kde.
I am new to linux in general and have an older sysytem that I successfully partitioned to run ubuntu, kubuntu, and windoze. I was a casual mac user before thius and am used to packages--so I have no exp. installing tarballs. I am trying to install xampp and successfully downloaded it, but now am at a loss as to what to do--nothing seems to be working. I am using firefox which for some reason is not saving to downloads even though that is what I have set in pref. Is there a way I can use apt-get for this (although my understanding of that isn't much better. I can't seem to find the relevant information in documentation.
I'm using 10.04.2, and I find that whenever I'm trying update (whether using synaptic, or command-line apt-get), the package download starts off fine, but after downloading a few files (usually only 4 or 5), the next partial (ongoing) downloads become corrupt, all the remaining downloads stay in the partial folder and finally apt-get gives a size mismatch error .I'm forced to watch the update progress the entire time and wait for the downloads to corrupt (at this point the progress bar stops at say, "Downloading file 4 of 70" but the details show subsequent files are being downloaded)the update process and clean the /var/cache/apt/archives/partial folder (NOT the archives folder, or all the packages will have to be downloaded again). Then I restart the update and it picks up after the last successfully downloaded .deb.
Effectively, every such iteration downloads 3-5 .deb files successfully, and corrupts the remaining. Needless to say, if I'm upgrading 50 packages, it gets really frustratingI faced this problem even on new installations on my system as well as a friend's. Lucid, Maverik, Natty all have the same problem. By new installations, I mean on the very first boot, I setup the network (I'm behind a proxy server in a university) and that's it. I tried Linux Mint and it had the same problem.
I have Debian Jessie installed. When I insert a non-encrypted DVD movie DVD into the drive, a pop-up menu appears asking me what I want to do (e.g. "Open with vlc media player, etc.).
When I insert an encrypted DVD movie DVD into the drive, no pop-up menu appears.
I am able to play the encrypted movie DVD in vlc, and libdvdcss2 is installed. So my question is not about playing the DVD but rather about the failure to automatically detect it.
This behaviour happens in Gnome, Mate, and XFCE. (KDE has a Plasma Device Notifier Widget that is able to detect the encrypted DVD).
My other computer with Debian Wheezy is able to automatically recognize the encrypted DVD.
Here are the relevant lines from /var/log/syslog after the insertion of the encrypted DVD:
Code: Select allJun 21 14:52:04 debian-think-pad kernel: [ 2012.208964] Result: hostbyte=DID_OK driverbyte=DRIVER_SENSE Jun 21 14:52:04 debian-think-pad kernel: [ 2012.208972] sr 1:0:0:0: [sr0] Jun 21 14:52:04 debian-think-pad kernel: [ 2012.208977] Sense Key : Illegal Request [current] Jun 21 14:52:04 debian-think-pad kernel: [ 2012.208986] Info fld=0x400
Here are the relevant lines from /var/log/syslog after the insertion of the non-encrypted DVD:

Whan I run the mount command after inserting the non-encrypted DVD the following line appears in the output:
Code: Select all/dev/sr0 on /media/daniel/Check Please type udf (ro,nosuid,nodev,relatime,uid=1000,gid=1000,umask=77,iocharset=utf8,uhelper=udisks2)
Granted, this issue is not a major problem as I can start vlc and play the DVD. However, it might be useful to some new users to Linux to have the pop-up menu appear. Additionally, it would be interesting to learn why it works in Debian Wheezy and not in Debian Jessie.
I'm trying to upgrade to F11, and I'm having trouble. I attempted to download the x86_64 DVD .iso image by bit torrent, and it seemed okay, but when I started the installation the DVD failed the initial integrity check. I tried a second time with another DVD and got the same result.I tried running md5sum on the .iso image, but the response did not match what was in the CHECKSUM file that came with the .iso image -- should it? I tried downloading a live DVD image for comparison and found the same result - the response to the md5sum command did not match what was listed in the CHECKSUM file.Should these checksums match, or am I comparing apples and oranges? I thought the bit torrent client was supposed to check the files, but I'm not sure about that.
There is some issue with the latest version of LinuxDC++ (version: 1.2.0~pre1~bzr Core version: 0.75). I have upgraded to the latest version a few days back from launchpad repos due to the frequent crashes and system hang-ups. My complete and incomplete downloads folder are same. While my download was going on, LinuxDC++ deleted all the files from the downloads folder.
After about half an hour of tweaking, I updated my database using updatedb, and found my files in ~/.dc++/Filelists/anantwqqwe.BMIU2NFCFXB7ERTSG62PRSQPRJIN63A56EEGO6Q . What does that supposed to mean and why its doing this way? This is the second time this has happened to me, the last time I was unable to locate the deleted files on my system and I suppose they were not there. I use 64-bit Ubuntu 10.10(maverick).
I have the eight Debian dvds listed in my sources.list, along with security, nonfree, and multimedia repositories. It does this for all eight dvds, re-scanning them for the update.These dvds have already been scanned (from the apt-cdrom add command). New updates are NOT going to suddenly appear on these already scanned dvds, so this is a completely unnecessary endeavour.Is there a way to stop this?It didn't happen with Lenny, and I'd like to stop it with Squeeze.
I use Squeeze. I just recently upgraded from Lenny. My sources.list is a combination of Debian DVDs and some http repos (for multimedia, non-free, and security updates). I rely largely on DVDs because I use dial-up.
When I tried to run apt-get dist-upgrade for the multimedia packages on my system, it told me to insert Debian DVD disc #1, and from that attempted to install the following programs: librtmp0 libdirac-decoder0 libggiwmh0 libggiwmh0-target-x libvdpau1 twolame. But, it then told me:
I have one desktop and two laptops. It is strange to find that none of the three systems play VCD, when I use Totem, Totem-xine, Gxine or VLC media player, even with the codecs updated. Worse, each of the three DVD players then act in a loop, seeking the LG DVD-RAM drive endlessly. But the drives otherwise work very well and I also write DVDs and CDs often.I have tested the VCDs in Windows machines with VLC media player, and the VCDs work wonderfully. This is kind of strange. So I thought may be I should report this.
