I know from a myriad of posts on these forums that Ubuntu is more bleeding edge than Debian Testing. Since, Debian'w own kernel is misbehaving rejecting my video chip (i915), I am tempted to install Ubuntu's kernel in Wheeze.
So, the golden question is: Is it logical and feasible to install Ubuntu's kernel in Wheezy? Wheezy's kernel is 2.6.38.
This is Wheezy x86_64. I tried two different ways to install kernel 2.6.38 on my machine and both have failed. First thing I did was to follow this guide [URL]... el-26.html) and try to compile the latest stable from kernel.org. I don't know why, but it turns into kernel panic when I try to run it. Second thing I did was to install the liquorix 2.6.38, and that also fails, seeming to boot but hanging a second short from the login. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. Is there a special way to install kernels in Debian? This is the first time I tried compiling a kernel, so it's quite likely that the problem is sitting 6 inches from the computer screen. Also, how would I remove those kernels since they're obviously not working? I know I could remove them from the grub menu but I'm not sure how to completely delete them.
I'm trying to compile the 2.6.38 kernel (from the Wheezy sources) on my Squeeze laptop and get the following error: "dpkg-buildpackage: error: debian/rules build gave error exit status 2" After doing apt-get build-dep linux-image-2.6.38-2-amd64 and apt-get source linux-image-2.6.38-2-amd64 I did dpkg-buildpackeg and here is what happened:
I searched the forum about installing the liquorix kernel but I cannot understand why the file /etc/apt/sources.list is not mentioned to invoke the liquorix repository.
Instead, I found: Alternative Performance Kernel for Debian wrote:For anyone interested, just add the following to a sources file (/etc/apt/sources.list.d/liquorix.list): deb [url] or for you scripters, echo "deb [url]
I dont want openjdk packages on my system, in Kubuntu I had a few troubles with them trying to make SqlDeveloper to work around. So this is what I see after a java -version:
Code: Select alledgardo@debian:~$ java -version java version "1.8.0_45" Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_45-b14) Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.45-b02, mixed mode) edgardo@debian:~$
I've been uninstalling openjdk from synaptic and with other few commands on the terminal so far and I think I probably broke it. I have no /usr/lib/jvm folder only /usr/lib/java/jdk1.8.0_45.But everytime I wish to start up Eclipse it shows the logo for a few seconds and that's it.... never gets opened. And in /usr/bin$ I only have this symbolic link....
I am trying to install octave 4 in my debian wheezy, and I am getting following error after I have executed ./configure

I have tried to find a solution about issues installing octave 4 from binaries. I can not use octave from the repository as it is old for my studies.
I have a laptop primarily used for a client work. It is running Debian Wheezy, and wish to keep it intact in case I need to do more work for client.
I would like to install Ubuntu 14.04 alongside Debian, and use Ubuntu as a bit of a play/experiment area, etc... HD has lots of space (600GB free), and as far as I can tell Grub is installed in MBR.
I did some searches, and from what I can tell, it sounds like I can just install Ubuntu from ISO file, specify how much space to use (say 400GB), and that's it. This sounds almost too easy. Once I install and restart machine, will there be selection for what Distro to boot.
I have just installed Wheezy after repartitioning and had to set up my sources list myself as (most of it) was not done for me. I have just added the main official repository,security updates and the multimedia repository. To be honest I'm not sure if any of them are working when I do an update in aptitude, I think the multimedia one might be. The CD ROM isn't even working despite the fact I have done apt-cdrom add.I am getting the following when run aptitude update:
Ign cdrom://[Debian GNU/Linux testing _Wheezy_ - Official Snapshot i386 CD Binary-1 20110328-05:16] wheezy InRelease Ign cdrom://[Debian GNU/Linux testing _Wheezy_ - Official Snapshot i386 CD Binary-1
I managed to install LibreOffice. I've only a little experience with Ubuntu and none at all with Debian.
My 1st project is relatively simple. Pro Screenwriting software can be kinda costly, a hundred & change, at least.
With expanding contests, YouTube & the like, writers interest has been growing; and these day most submissions are pdf not paper. (The BBC Writersroom is a fantastic resource, and even allows unsolicited submissions). [URL] ....
Some years ago, Alan Baird got an award from Sun Micro for developing a set of free format templates called Screenwright for Open Office. Including both US & A4, as well as radio, sitcom, theatre and movies; these have now been ported to Libre Office under Creative Commons usage. [URL] ....
I believe these should work well and fairly fast on the new Pi, as most spec scripts are vastly more white space than word count.
There is a minor problem tho, which first came up with 'New Courier' on Windows machines. The 'page per minute' rule is still important enough that the different line/page length spacing of 'Courier-like' fonts is unacceptable in a submission.
The standard Courier font can be had from [URL] ....
That font set is a zip file which should be extracted and then the 3 fonts are to be dragged into the Windows fonts directory.
So how exactly do I do that with Rasperian Wheezy? Do I extract on the Pi or on the windows machine? Are fonts like most documents, readable on any distro, or do they need to be converted somehow?
So the other day I installed Debian Wheezy on my Sun Blade 150. While the OS is installed fine, all the webkit based browsers continuously crash after a few pages. So, I tried to download IceWeasel since it wasn't installed when I tried installing Debain off the DVD. The only problem is, it won't install as the Xulrunner version it requests is xulrunner-24.0_24.5.0esr-1~deb7u1_sparc, however the only version available on the repositories is newer. Is there any way to get the older xulrunner version, or is there going to be a fix for IceWeasel soon on Sparc?
I'm having all sorts of problems after doing my first update (#1. safe-upgrade, #2. full-upgrade) in over a month.
Anything from no Nvidia linux-headers being found to any VT not working. After completely removing all of the previously tried Nvidia presence on my PC, is there a safe way for me to install the non-free drivers?
I love using wheezy but i keep having to take my computer downstairs to hook it up to router through ethernet, i need it to connect through wifi and stay connected.
heres my problem, if i use live image and connect to network its fine but during installation process it gets to the network configuration, it will keep disconnecting at dhcp and if i try and continue it gives me the error packages broken due to it not staying connected.
MY WIFI CARD IS A TP-LINK WDN 4800
if i try and just do a net install then it doesnt show my wifi network.
it uses in both cases ar93xx atheros driver for installing, i just need to know how i can try and keep a stable connection over wifi so it can install over wifi so i dont have to keep taking pc downstairs to install it.
i done something that stopped me being able to login into wheezy i was left at black screen with blinking command line, i have reverted to mint debian until i can get a stable connection over wifi to install wheezy again.
When i finish install debian7.8 wheezy in my Acer computer(graphics :GT750M+ Inter HD Graphics Family),

I have a VIA Epia M 5000 system with 2 western digital 1TB NAS SATA drives connected through SATA<->IDE adapter. Everything installs and writes as expected except... grub. It never boots, after a message 'Grub loading' I always get 'error: no such disk'. I've tried numerous times and has been attemping to fix the issue for the past 2 days.

update-grub2 in rescue mode generates grub.cfg with SET root=/mduuid/UUID_OF_SDA1 then after that there's search --no-floppy etc --set root=/mduuid/UUID_OF_MD0
I'm writing this from memory but simply the two uuids are different. Is this correct? I get those UUIDs to compare from blkid. All partitions are marked as bootable. grub-install /dev/sda and grub-install /dev/sdb produces no errors. grub-install /dev/md0 does not work, complains about superblocks or something similar.
Grub.cfg file contains insmod raid mdraid1x and similar lines, so that should be ok. Grub drops to rescue mode with message error: no such disk. Not device, but disk. Google finds many results for 'no such device' error, but I am not getting that error. 'ls' produces (hd0) (hd0,msdos1) (hd1) (hd1,msdos1) ls ANY_VALID_PATH produces empty newline being printed, nothing more.
setting prefixes manually does not work, with error message 'error: file not found'. ls (hd0,msdos1)/boot/grub also produces empty line being printed. Rescue CD and auto-assemble of md0 and md1 works, the files are there, everything okay, except grub.
I am trying to install Debian wheezy 7.6 stable, i made a bootable pen drive with netinst but when it arrives the select and install software part i got a error that i cant know what error is because it does not show its name. Just appear a red screen saying that a part in installation fails: Select and install software. I guess that this error is when it is installing tasksel.
anyway the reason for my posti downloaded a network install of wheezypartitioned and loaded wheezy on to a dell latitude d600now after installation the keyboard and mouse ( touchpad or nipple ) do not functionsince this inconvenience i have been plugging in a usb keyboard and mouse at the graphical login then using them to work the laptopAfter a reboot the usb peripherals do need to be uplugged and reconnected otherwise they also do not functioni am obviously missing something vital here but i am not sure where to start, kernel 184.108.40.206-686 i have loaded the non-free repos added the various firmware files etc. to get wireless and bluetooth to functionbut the keyboard and mouse has me stumped i have searched the forum and google but haven't come across anyone with the same issue.Some forum suggestions have been to reconfigure xorg.conf but this does not exist on this installevdev - the event driver is thereudev - the kernel device manager is also there
Has anyone had any luck in trying to install wheezy (latest testing snapshot available) on any system with either a AMD/ATI 68xx or 69xx card?All goes well in the install, but on reboot, all that is seen is a "_" and no text, and it hard locks.I am pretty sure this is a conflict with the video card drivers that get installed by default (and which should be blacklisted), but I have no idea how to fix it.The recovery mode don't work either, it is the same "_" with no text, and it ends up hard locking. There is no chance at getting access to a console at all.
Downloaded and copied to a usb pen drive the latest debian testing snapshot netinstall iso: wget url
then dd if=debian-testing-amd64-netinst.iso of=/dev/sdb
Everything went fine, even the install part.After the 1st boot, problems started. I've never seen so much errors after a first install and probably they are all reported.
1. ata_id: HDIO_GET_IDENTITY failed for '/dev/sdb' 2. mkdir: cannot create directory `/run/udev/rules.d/': Read-only file system 3. startpar: service(s) returned failure: udev ... failed! 4. INIT: Id "co" respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes 5. eth0 doesn't automatically start; one has to start it via ifup eth0 After that, installed a minimal xserver-xorg-core, xserver-xorg-video-radeon and kde-plasma-desktop. I'm unable to use the newly DE environment, the screen just freezes, I'm guessing because of the udev error.
I have to restart via Magic SysRQ key: Alt+PrtScr+S > Alt+PrtScr+U > Alt+PrtScr+B
i have fresh installed debian wheezy xfce4, and using slim to start it but i can't get reboot, shutdown and thunar can't open flash and others volumes. i using .xinitrc (exec ck-launch-session startxfce4)
But when Squeeze goes from 'testing' to 'stable' in December... does Wheezy get promoted from 'sid/unstable' to 'testing' at the same time?.
I started my life in Linux with and currently use Ubuntu, and it runs decent(barely). However, I just upgraded to Ubuntu 10.10, and because of strange little issues and increasing bloatware, I have been forced to strongly consider the "mother OS": Debian.
The reason for my original question is that I want to run whatever the current "testing version" is. And if Wheezy gets promoted at the same time Squeeze does, then I will just wait the 4 weeks instead of slogging through another install(I prefer fresh installations vs upgrading within). I know the test versions of Debian are a bit more active than stable, but I have used Ubuntu for over 2 years, so I have some experience dealing with Terminal commands, package management, gnome, etc...I am also currently VirtualBoxing a copy of Squeeze.
I got "stuck" with stable up to now and want to upgrade to Wheezy. But, although I've done this before, I'm having a dependency problem I wanted to ask about before breaking my system somehow. This is the /etc/apt/sources.list, ready for Wheezy:
So, I regularly use aptitude as my package manager. After updating the database with aptitude update, trying aptitude full-upgrade gives me a huge of conflicts.
But, if I use apt-get dist-upgrade, I get no conflicts. if I dist-upgrade with apt-get, will that affect my daily usage of aptitude (which I prefer)? I know APT is a single database and apt-get and aptitude are just different interfaces, but I guess differences might rise when marking packages as automatically or manually installed.
I'm somewhat familiar with Ubuntu (familiar but not sharp!) but have never tried Debian OS until now. I've installed Debian 5 64bit as a guest on a Mac host. I'm impressed how smooth the install went; even installing VB Guest Additions went smoothly. But, I get a "Your system had a kernel failure" error after booting. I have searched the forum & didn't find this error. Everything seems to work okay but is there an update that isn't showing in the Update Manager? Could this have something to do with VirtualBox 3.1.4?
I've had a weird issue recently with Java/Spring. Basically, it would work on all machines but my trusty Debian box. Macs for devs, Ubuntu for production and some devs have it too. This annoyed me, because of course Debian is the greatest and it must work there too! Also, Java is based on the whole write once run anywhere concept, I have never really had a problem with code behaving differently on different Java installs of the same version, even on completely different OSs it seems to behave itself very well. URL....
I moved up to Jessie and the problem goes away. I can only conclude that some library that is called by Java got upgraded, somehow influences the order in which Spring resolves its dependencies. Probably the fact that other devs build on Ubuntu and have got it working there, and the upgrade to Jessie brings my libs more in line with what Ubuntu will be running has done the trick.
when gnome 2.32 might be ready for Wheezywhen gnome 2.32 might be ready for Wheezy. I'm in hopes that Wheezy will NOT have gnome3, and I'm somewhat confident of that, but I play in both Debian and Ubuntu and I'm thinking about trying to get the Ubuntu devs to port Debian's gnome version 2.32 into their Oneiric Ocelot via package 'gnome-desktop-environment'. (It's currently at 2.30).
