i was going to do this project of installing Debian on a NAS Intel SS4000e . The part i got stuck is that i cannot stop the Redboot from booting up. i.e using CTRL+C. The NAS uses the latest firmware from Intel Ver1.4 . The serial cable is tested and i used the following pin out [URL]... nsoleCable and the comport settings are as follows
I have several computers based on ECS G41T-M motherboard, featuring ICH7 chipset with VIA VT1708B 8-ch audio codec. I've installed Debian Lenny 64-bit on it. The sound itself works, but mixer does not, thus, for example, I can not get my recording app working, changing volumes does not work etc.
I've recently started trying out Debian 5 coming from Ubuntu. I'm very much in love with KDE 4.4 now they've fix it so it actually runs. but I'm unable to install it on Debian 5.
Right now I have Debian 5.0.3 on an Asus Eee netbook, and it's running KDE 3.5.x. I installed this from a Disk marked Debian, Official CD KDE i386, Debian GNU/Linux 5.0.3 "Lenny" (I bought the entire 33 CD set.)
I've tried to install KDE 4.x via synaptic, using the kdebase-runtime-bin-kde 4:4.1.0-2.
Even after a 3h download and install, it still boots with KDE 3.x. There is no switching to KDE 4.x in the KDM as well.
I've been unable to find a repository. I thought about using a Ubuntu KDE install, but after reading some posts here, I thought I'd better ask your opinions first. (Which I should ask too. if I see programs I like in Ubuntu, should I just compile them from tarballs instead of the .DEB binary to make sure they work in Debian 5?)
Should I wait till Debian.org actually puts KDE 4.x on their repositories (I hear the next version will have KDE 4.5.x on disk.)

I have been asked to install Windows 7 on a computer that groans to even run Windows xp properly. As I know, this is like asking for the impossible, I am posting here to have some opinions about the use of Wine in Debian. In particular, I would like to know whether wine makes Debian less secure and more vulnerable to viral, malware, adware, etc infections.
I am trying to install Debian from a USB stick (which was prepared by unetbootin). The installer / kernel loads, and setup runs fine until It searches for a CD-ROM drive. My computer doesn't have a CD-ROM drive, but the net install ISO has been burned onto my USB stick. Is there some way that I can mount my USB stick as the cd-rom drive? it's of type FAT32 if it matters.
Durring attempts to install Haguichi, Terminal says "Version of libmono-system2.0-cil on system is 1.9.1+dfsg-6." I have used "sudo apt-get -i libmono-system2.0-cil" only to be told during that install that I "have the latest version alread installed." Do I need to uninstall 1.9.1+dfsg-6 ?
I'm running 64-bit Debian lenny, and am trying to run a 32-bit program that requires libGLEW. I've installed libGLEW using apt-get install libglew1.5, but when I try to run the program I get the error: error while loading shared libraries: libGLEW.so.1.5: wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS64
It seems the default install of libGLEW is in 64-bit mode, and the program can't use the 64-bit libraries. It looks like I need to install libGLEW in 32-bit mode, but I've no idea how to do that.
I am new to debian, But I was using ubuntu previously. Now I have installed debian Lenny and I want to install the VLC player, When I try the below command nothing happens.Do I need to add any repository?
The following actions will resolve these dependencies:
Keep the following packages at their current version:
I have been fighting with this for days. I upgraded from etch to lenny. I tried installing mysql-5.1. I have uninstalled, reinstalled, updated, upgraded, many, *many*, times. It just stubbornly refuses to work.
I recently installed Debian 5.0.5 (lenny) on an extra PC that I had lying around:
Intel P4 3.4 GHz 4GB DDR2 NVidia 7600 GT - 256 MB
I want to turn this PC into a Linux server for hosting a basic JSP web application with PostgreSQL as the back-end database.
I installed PostgreSQL and it runs fine however I'm having some issues installing Tomcat 6. I followed a guide that I found online, and everything seemed fine when I was following the steps however I wasn't able to verify that the server was running by viewing the default tomcat page. [url]
Is there much difference in using Tomcat 5 vs Tomcat 6? I'll probably try Tomcat 5.5 tonight.

I'd also like to setup a simple email server, and I'd like to know roughly what's required to do this.
I downloaded vim7.3.tar.bz2 and installed it on my computer with debian lenny. I uninstalled the default vim using aptitude but after I installed vim (/.configure, make and make install) vim did NOT create the folders for configuration in /etc or /usr/share. The end result is I have a very inconvinent but working vim. I uninstalled vim and looked up all the directories with vim and renamed them and reinstalled them but still vim is not working.
Using VirtualBox on Ubuntu 9.10. Processor is Intel Q8200 Debian amd64 ISOs should work on my system but I had to resort to i386, which installed flawlessly despite a couple of kernel panics once X started. I don't think the problem is VirtualBox and I'm about to reboot and try loading the CD normally to see if that works.
I'm still getting used to the system. I've been able to install a couple of packages like Disk Manager and Firefox, and was able to mount my ntfs drive. I've only learned some basic terminal commands, but I'm managing ok so far. That is until I looked into what was involved in installing the video drivers I need for my Nvidia 8400 GS card. (ouch!) I'm trying to follow the guide here: [URL] but I've run into a snag in the 'Overview' part: "0. Make sure APT has non-free and contrib sources (consult the sources.list(5) man page for help on doing this) " The link provided [URL] is dead. With only a basic understanding (next to none) of what the sources.list is for, I'm unsure how to fulfill step 0.
My computer initially had one hard drive, with Debian Lenny 5.0.4 installed. I haven't done any special configuration, so upon boot, I was presented with the GRUB kernel select menu, then gdm, etc. I think I used the Debian installer's 'use entire drive with LVM' configuration.
I then added a second hard drive, with the intention of installing Windows XP on it. After I installed XP on this second drive, I found out that it had overwritten the MBR on the first drive. (It was my intention do use the BIOS' F8-key boot menu to choose between the two drives, each with their own distinct boot loader. The two drives and OS's would be completely independent.)
Using my Debian installer CD, I think I have GRUB installed on the first drive again. I've found a number of tutorials which say I can use 'set' and 'linux' to boot the system, but the linux command always returns a file not found error.
I think my LVM filesystem is still intact, as the Debian installer's fdisk reports it, it can also chroot to it and my installation appears to be intact. 'ls' within GRUB shows (derek-swap_1) (derek-root) (hd0) (hd0,1) (hd0,2) (hd1) (hd1,1) (fd0) . 'derek' was the hostname I used.
I would like to simply restore the system to the way it was before: with the standard GRUB that comes with Debian 5.0.4, which then boots into the debian with my LVM filesystem. Is there a way to do this from the Debian installer CD? (I was hoping there would be a 'dummy install' command which would install GRUB and configure it properly, but leave all my existing partitions and filesystems intact.)
If I install a totally different Linux distro on my existing Ubuntu 9.10 system, will it break GRUB 2? I was thinking of installing Debian Lenny, but have held off because I do not want to inadvertently wreck the boot arrangement.
I've previously installed Windows after installing Kubuntu, and had to reinstall GRUB as the bootloader as a result. It wasn't a big deal with the old GRUB, but I don't know if it's that easy with GRUB 2.
I am not sure what bootloader Debian Lenny uses. I've been looking but haven't found the answer yet. I guess if it also uses Grub 2, I wouldn't have to fix anything.
I want to try out Lenny because an app I want to use (Teamspeak 3) doesn't play nicely with Pulseaudio. Pulseaudio is integral to Ubuntu 9.10, but I have other options with Debian Lenny. I'd like to see whether the app works better there w/LXDE.
I guess I could also just make a virtual Lenny machine in Virtualbox, but I wouldn't get full use of my hardware, so I wouldn't be able to play Urban Terror (which is why I want to use Teamspeak 3).
I installed the new debian_lenny_5.0.1_amd64 x64, i am having a nVidia Geforce 8500 GT 512 RAM display card. I was trying to install the driver using the synaptic package manager. I installed them, but i was not able to use the driver. I don't know where the drivers are installed and how to use it. I checked the xorg.conf , and the nVidia driver is not listed there. how to install them .
i was trying to use gnome and kde but i don't like them. I tried xfce and it seem to fit my needs but.My computer is used to be powered on for a weeks. While time passes, a process xfdesktop begin to use more and more memory and to free RAM i need to log out and log in again.
I tried squeeze yesterday on my virtual machine and it has 4.6 and seem not to have that bug, RAM usage is static(yes it still works when i write this and have memory usage 34492k, which is not changing for an hours of usage already), also 4.6 is MUCH better than 4.4.
i already tried adding squeeze to "sources.list" but i can see too many dependencies which should be upgraded if i install 4.6, i'm beginning to afraid it can crash entire GUI(or entire system, i can see there is libc6 required to be updated).
I would like to update my kernel to version 2.6.32 to see if it solves my tv-tuner card issues (not being recognized by the kernel Lenny uses 2.6.26-2 x64). What steps should I follow to accomplish this upgrade?
I just got a new desktop PC with Intel i5 650 Dual Core 3.2GHz 4M Turbo. I would load up the installation cd, once I selected to install the screen would go blank and nothing happens. Centos 5.4 work, but I just want Fedora 12 installed.
I have a server with an Intel S875WP1-E motherboard and 4 HD of 400Gb each. If i use the raid utility from the motherboard it doesn't appear during disk detection, so i disabled it. I've rebooted and launch installer from the DVD and it displays correctly 4 HD. I've configured them, installed the OS and installed GRUB in MBR (grub install /dev/sda /dev/sdb /dev/sdc /dev/sdd). But when i reboot it asks me to switch for a correct system disk.
I've look into BIOS configuration. If i make a raid array using the bios utility, i can choose any array in boot device priority, but if there is no array defined, i can't select anythig (but the DVD drive).
