Debian :: Automatically Start Graphical (SDL) Program As Root On Non-graphical Debian?

Mar 3, 2009

I'm not a Linux noob, but I am far from guru. I'm running a single board computer with a slightly customized Debian Etch (customized by the SBC vendor). No Gnome/KDE/X installed. My application is a control application which uses SDL (Simple DirectMedia Layer) to paint some basic graphics on the VGA. I need to run it as root because the application calls iopl() to access an IO port.If I run my application manually from the command line, life is sweet. From Googling around, I found, and hence I:1) Created a script in /etc/init.d2) Executed "update-rc.d scriptName defaults" to link the script into the boot sequenceAll very straightforward. My application starts at boot. But when I try to SSH/SFTP into the SBC, I get "Connection refused". So I can't manage the SBC anymore, and this is a big problem. I am not sure if it's relevant, but my application starts before the SSH daemon.My script looked like:

case "$1" in
echo "Starting my application"

Debian :: Debian Synaptic Package Manager Error: Xserver-xorg Stripped?

Feb 10, 2011

I have used Debian Linux for two years, most recently the seventh or so iteration of Version 5. I use the Gnome desktop and the Synaptic Package Manager, not the Update Manager, for updates because it's easier to build a log with the former.In my most recent update, Synaptic stripped out all the xserver-xorg files´┐Ż47 in all. I thought it peculiar but did not know enough to interfere. When I rebooted, the system told me I must install xserver or correct GDM configuration and restart.

Have I been hacked? Am I being tested by the Linux Illuminati? Or does it have something to do with the warning message I received at the end of the update-upgrade, attached? And how do I go about reinstalling xserver? With Aptitude? I have tried running apt-get -f install, to no effect.

Debian Multimedia :: Odd Graphical Glitch After Squeeze Upgrade?

Apr 4, 2011

So I've upgraded from Lenny to Squeeze, which has been a tadge more interesting than I would like, but there it is. But I've got one problem that is eluding me still. When I load up, but before login, my second monitor displays what I can only describe as a glitched-up memory of something it was displaying before, unless it has been turned off and turned back on again (as opposed to restarted), in which case it displays a very bizarre tiled image. I can't help but feel this is something obvious I've missed.

Debian :: Name Of Old GUI Package Manager?

May 7, 2011

I'm rebuilding my system and I didn't want to install Synaptic right now because it had some broken dependencies. It's just a recommended package so I actually could install it but then I remembered that old GUI package manager that was very good but searching and the Debian manual/reference I didn't find anything. It had a bland name like 'package manager' or something like that. Would it have been removed from the repo?

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.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: No TV In MythTV Frontend?

Feb 11, 2011

After overcomming a lot of difficulties, my MythTV (Via Epia 10000EG with Hauppauge PVR 500 card) worked with Mythbuntu 9.04. Last year it crashed and I had no time to spare to rebuild it.

Last couple of weeks I had more time and downloaded and tried to install Mythbuntu 10.10. Everything seems to be installed ok, but I get no picture in MythTV when I select "Watch TV" and no picture when I try to record something. When watching TV, the message "Please wait" appears for appr. 5 secs and then the system returns to the menu.

I installed Mythbuntu 10.10 and am using the provided IVTV drivers.

Dmesg and lspci give no errors, every seems to be in order, IVTV drivers are loaded, initialized and errorfree. Cat /dev/video0 gives me static in MPLAYER. The MythTV backendlog doesn't even give a message, the frontend log just says there is no picture...

There seems to be an error between the back and frontend. I checked the settings in capturecards, TV sources, channel edits, etc,etc, but I can't find it.

Debian :: Package Manager States There Are Updates But There Are None

Jan 28, 2010

I'm running Debian Lenny on my trusty old Thinkpad T41 laptop. Everything is running great with only one issue I can't seem to resolve. Under Gnome, the package manager will state that there are updates available. When I run the package manager to install the updates, none are listed. From the console, when I run apt-get update, apt-get upgrade, it states that there are 0 packages available. I have no idea why this is happening. I'm not receiving any error messages and none of the sources are giving errors.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Can't Seem To Find Any Drivers From Synaptic Package Manager

Apr 15, 2010

I just got an 8 Gb Sandisk Sansa mp3 player and i can't seem to find any drivers from the Synaptic package manager. I did searches on mp3, mp3 player, Sansa and Sandisk and could seem to find anything that looked like what I need. I was able to find a driver for it on my fedora 12 laptop by searching on "Sansa" but am stuck on my Ubuntu Desktop.

Debian :: Package Manager Stuck On Unpacking File

Jun 11, 2010

I ran an update like I do every night and was informed that I have eight packages to be upgraded. I allowed the package manager to run these updates. However, it became stuck. The first thing to be upgraded is file-roller. I get the message "Unpacking replacement file-roller ..." and then nothing. I left it like this for about 30 minutes and then decided to stop it with ctrl-c. That didn't work. I rebooted and ended up having to fix the package manager as it was locked because it thought it was running. I tried to update again and after about ten minutes, it's still hung on the same spot.

Debian :: Update & Package Manager Freeze During Authentication

Sep 12, 2010

I just installed Debian (Stable, 5.0.6) for the first time. I had some troubles related to the installation of network and nvidia drivers, but now the system seems to work pretty well. The only problem i'm having is that when I try to use tools like the graphic update or the graphic packet manager, or the graphic tool for adding/removing software, after I write the password they ask me, they freeze, but still seem keeping loading something, as the cursor usually keeps turning, and, on the lower bar of Gnome, something like "Granting rights..." appears (i've the italian version so i don't know if i'm translating well or not). Sometime they freeze before the request of authentication and then nothing happens, sometime they simply don't start. Also, sometime the update manager starts but freezes when i click on the button that checks for new updates.Maybe it could be useful for you to know that I installed the 2.6.32-bpo.5-amd64 kernel because my network had problems with the 2.6.26-2-amd64, could this be a problem? i also installed the last Nvidia drivers, and i think nothing more, just the system updates from the stable repositories.

Debian :: Installed Scim With The Package Manager, But Cannot Start It?

May 8, 2011

I have just switched from Ubuntu to Debian, so on the whole I can easily figure out how to use Debian. Scim however, is giving me a problem. I have installed scim with the package manager, but cannot start it.With Ubuntu is was ctrl+space bar, but so far I have not found any key combinations that work. In the preferences menu there is an entry for scim set-up, but it is only an information page.AlthoughI have been using Linux for a few years, I am not much of a terminal user, so I have not even thought of going that route for fear of wrecking my new system.Considering how easy it was to use scim on Ubuntu, which is a Debian derivative, it should not be difficult to get it working. (I am not a computer wizard. In fact, before switching to Linux I hated the machines.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Install The Gstreamer Stuff From Synaptic Package Manager?

Apr 12, 2010

I tried to install gstreamer through Rhythmbox but only got a "Fix broken packages first" error message. I tried to fix the broken packages in the Synaptic Package Manager but it said there were none to be fixed. I tried to install the gstreamer stuff from Synaptic Package Manager and got this message

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Package Manager Wants To Remove Pulseaudio-esound-compat?

Oct 11, 2010

I recently installed Quake 3 and Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory, and after reading a lot on making the sound work, I found a great resource here. The thing is that when I try some of the solutions this is what happens:When using apt-get install esound, the package manager wants to remove pulseaudio-esound-compat & ubuntu-desktop. When using apt-get install libsdl1.2debian-alsa, the package manager wants to remove libsdl1.2debian-pulseaudio & ubuntu-desktop

The sound is working flawlessly except for those two games, and I'm not sure if removing those packages (especially ubuntu-desktop) will make a mess. So I guess my question is What will be the impact of removing those packages? To rollback the system I just remove the new packages and install the old ones?

Software :: Router Like Web Frontend For Debian?

May 2, 2010

I'm configuring a debian computer to act as a router for my home network. I want to split my home network into two parts and define different firewall rules for these parts. I also want to use dhcp to make sure every time a computer logs in it gets the same ip but is still able to log in somewhere else. The biggest problem now is that I have to make some functions able to someone that has never worked with linux before.

I've worked with software routers like pfsense before and I would like a similar web frontend to this. Does anyone know if there is such a piece of software? I'm not using pfsense itself because I don't want to virtualize it and I need some things like the software raid5 and some htpc software I don't want to try to get working on pfsense. I've previously used webmin untill it was hacked because of an exploit in it so I preferably don't want to use that one. I've been working with the dd-wrt software and something like this would do the trick perfectly!

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Frontend Crashes / Does Not Start After Booting

I have installed mythbuntu 10.04. It worked well for a few days. Now my frontend does not start or crashes just after booting. You can see the frontend background for a few seconds but the menu does not load. After that, the mythtv window disappears and you can see the ubuntu desktop. Here are the last few lines from the log file:

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Mythtv Frontend Can't Find Scanned Channels

Oct 21, 2010

I can't get mythtv to play television with my Hauppauge HVR-850 tv card. I was able to view tv in mplayer, so I know that the card is working. The tv signal is broadcast only (no cable). I had to set the card type to DVB DTV capture card (v3.x) to get mythtv-setup to successfully scan. I was able to successfully scan both with a "full scan" and with a channels.conf file that I had generated earlier when tinkering tv in mplayer. Unfortunately, the mythtv frontend failed to play any live tv. It said "Error: MythTV is using all inputs, but there are no active recordings?"

Debian :: PACKAGE MANAGER Crash - Stuck - Dead - How To Reset Or Clear Repositories

May 15, 2011

The package manager is scrambled in my Ubuntu 11.04. It started with the repositories list being scrambled with multiple entries. Now when the Package Manager is launched it just accesses the hard drive forever. I did give it a half an hour just in case so it clearly stuck in a loop of some kind.

What I'd like to know is: Is there some way to reset, clear, turn off or de-select the added Repositories list from the command line (terminal.) This seems to be the only way since the Package Manager gets stuck. Keep in mind that I'm only slightly competent with Linux and have no idea where the Debian Package Manager data is located or how it works. If I go poking around without at least some guidance I may make things worse.

The problem seems to be spreading. Got stuck again while saving this message. Turned off the system, rebooted to recovery mode and did a file system check. Okay for now. Switching to clean OS on other partition.

I'll check for answers there but it's only Ubuntu 10.04 and I'd very much prefer to have 11.04 working and not have an effectively dead partition and don't want to loose everything on it with a re-format and 2 day re-install process (no installation disk.)
