I have an old compaq pressario (with a compaq cd/dvd player + HP cd writer/Reader) with Debian Etch and a gnome desktop, and I would like to extract the mp3 dvd a friend gave me (He made it from bittorrent). On a XP box the cd is played without problem but I would like to extract and play each song on Etch. I have Sound juicer which works allright for usual audio cd but not with this mp3 thing. I have tried to define a new profile with params I have found on the net for mp3 but up to now without success. I even don't know if it's a problem of hardware being too old, or if I could solved this with the appropriate software
i'm running Debian "lenny" x86 on KDE. Back in Windows, I was able to switch between keyboard input languages by pressing certain hotkeys on my English keyboard. For instance if I switched to German, the semicolon button would become I think a umlaut or o umlaut. Is there any close equivalent in Debian? I know of 'dpkg-reconfigure console-data', however even if it did work (which in my case it didn't), it would be a hassle to type in commands at the terminal to switch between keyboard input languages, compared to just pressing hotkeys.
I have recently started working on our server. My knowledge about *nix systems is very limited, so I turn to the oh-so-friendly internet community for help.The server is running Debian Etch, postfix, courier and some other stuff. And suddenly out of the blue the emails from the internet are not being received. Emails being sent internally are being received and everyone can browse the internet.Host or domain name not found. Name service error for na$for name=xxx.xxx.xx.xx.list.dsbl.org type=A: Host not found, try again.Does anyone have any experience with something like this? I would love to get this thing fixed.
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.
Now that Etch is on archive.debian.org - how do I get the Debian installer to install it (via. net)?Before everyone shouts "upgrade to Lenny" - I need Etch for a reason.Simply putting archive.debian.org as the install mirror doesn't work either.
For archiving purposes, I am looking for the different (Gnome, KDE, Xfce) live CD images of the last revision (9) of Etch. I want a copy of them to compare how the system and the desktop environment have evolved in the last couple of years. Actually, I would also like to have live CD images of older releases, but I don't know if they exist.
tried to to run apt-get update (under Debian Etch)but it does not workI get the output (see apt_get_output.txt)I also tried running apt-get upgrade first, but that did not change anything.My sources list looks like (see sources.txt)
I need to install Etch (not Lenny ) over the internet - but all my mirrors won't even entertain me. Is there a way to still install Etch over the 'net - as opposed to Lenny? I need Etch because of some specific software I am running - and I have to PXE boot (I've used the Etch netboot.tar.gz files).
I need to get Debian ETCH working with Flash, due to professional issues I cannot update to a newer Debian distribution (Squeeze for instance) now.[URL]Which tells me to use swfdec0.4 or swfdec0.5. but the archive repository for Etch only provides this swfdec0.3 are there any repository able to provide this out of date lib
Why is my Xen server (An up-to-date Lenny box) making Xen DomUs as Etch boxes? I run a command such as:
This is 100% replicable. I certainly never asked it to create an Etch VM! I cannot find anything in the docs to change this. And for the record, I did let it finish creating it, and it most definitely made an Etch box.
I have a mail server up and running sending and receiving mails with one primary(dom1) and a virtual domain(dom2). My problem is that i get the header anyUserOfDom2 at dom1.tld when i receive mail on my gmail account which i sent myself from user at dom2.tld . So the part after the at sign should be dom2.tld but i get dom1.tld so people can't send replies.
Just to set the scene, I'm not a Linux expert, but am learning the hard way! I have a 6 server cluster that needs upgrading (this includes quite a few of our own packages), and am currently working on a spare server. Lenny is now installed, and my next problem is that libapache-template-perl doesn't seem to exist in Lenny. So, is there a definitive list of 'replacement' packages, if not what can I do about this one.
I have two optical drives (not SATA) that previously showed up as /dev/hda and /dev/hdb. No longer. I see no mention of them in fstab and catting all the /dev/dvd /dev/cd... /dev/sr.. turns up nothing. If I place a disk with info in the drive nothing appears anywhere I can seen dmesg).K3b tells me no devices found.wodim tells me Detected CD-R drive:/dev/sr1wodim: Cannot do inquiry for CD/DVD-Recorder.Errno: 5 (Input/output error), test unit ready scsi sendcmd: fatal errorCDB: 00 00 00 00 00 00cmd finished after 0.000s timeout 40s
I'm trying to upgrade a Debian Etch box to Lenny. I've opened /etc/apt/sources.list, did a global replace etch->lenny. Then I did "apt-get update" as root. After some activity, I got the following message:
W; GPG error: http://security.debian.org lenny/updates Release: the following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY xxx And then another error of the same nature for the different, FTP site. Then it said I might to run apt-get update to correct that.

I did not configure any servers or do any package selections but did manage to get the internet connection working (actually Debian managed that all by itself). I'd like to "upgrade" to Lenny.
Do I need to upgrade to Etch first or can I go straight to Lenny? At what point do I "upgrade" the kernel (before upgrading to Etch/Lenny? After?)
I'm trying to upgrade an etch system to lenny, I've updated my sources list to lenny and ran apt-get update. When I try apt-get install apt
apt-get install apt I get the following:
Reading package lists. Done Building dependency tree. Done Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable distribution that some required packages have not yet been created or been moved out of Incoming. Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that the package is simply not installable and a bug report against that package should be filed. The following information may help to resolve the situation:
The following packages have unmet dependencies. apt: Depends: libc6 (>= 2.7-1) but 2.3.6.ds1-13etch10+b1 is to be installed Depends: libstdc++6 (>= 4.2.1) but it is not going to be installed E: Broken packages
if I try apt-get install apt libc6, it wants to upgrade a whole heap of packages - will this be a safe thing to do ?
I am running a server that has Etch on it. I have only recently been given this responsibility as I am the "IT-guy". I am running postifx, squid, shorewall, courier, samba and other things. The network has about 75 users with emails and data. I do not want to do anything that would risk their data and emails getting lost.
Is it still recommended that I upgrade to Lenny and then Squeeze?
about 2 weeks post-install, I find that my new debian etch machine has limited support for different filesystems. In the past, I've always seen support for riesers, xfs, ntfs, fat32, of course ext2/3,. I was trying to mount and read an old windows ntfs HDD, and there were problems, so I went to: cat /proc/filesystems (see below). Is there any way to get back support for other filesystems on my kernel, or do I need another kernel, or do i need to compile a new kernel? Maybe just install the system over again? (if I do, how do I select for filesystem support)...
I've been upgrading a bunch of our servers from sarge to etch and then to lenny, on two of these servers, cron has broken, cronjobs will not run. On another two (that have no significant differences from the others) cron is unaffected I created a simple job to run while I was testing
*/1 * * * * root /usr/local/mailtest-1 in the script is echo test mail from busted server | mail -s "test mail from your busted server" [URL]. and that runs fine if I run it manually, I've added it into /etc/crontab and crontab -e but haven't got a single mail from it. The cron service is running
I tried apt-get remove --purge and then a re-install but it doesn't seem to have worked. All the logs have stopped rotating as well so I'm starting to think that maybe it's not a fault with cron but with some other service that it depends on. However, I've not been able to figure out what that might be.
