Debian :: Why Not Establishing Official User Based Repository

Aug 19, 2011

One may argue that Debian is going mainstream being officially supported by Linux Mint. The chances are high that many users may change from the Ubuntu to the Debian base. By now especially Ubuntu's PPA has grown to a huge respository offering almost anything an user would need. But how does that look like in a Debian world?

There are several approaches to establish a "Debian PPA", amongst them debppa, but there activity is low not to say that they are almost inactive and orphaned. As coming from an Archlinux and Ubuntu perspective I do not know the Debian perspectives enough to reason this but am still curious to know about your motives not establishing a userbased repository.

OpenSUSE Install :: Official Repository For Newer Kernels?

May 12, 2010

Are there any official, almost-official or maybe even reasonably stable kernel repositories with new kernels for opensuse 11.2? I recently changed my laptop for a new one which has some issues, which then again are solved in 2.6.33 (and even in 2.6.32 with some tweaking). I would by any means try to avoid kernel recompilation.

Debian :: Backports Service Becoming Official?

Sep 7, 2010

The Debian Project is proud to announce that the backports service, previously available at [URL].. is now an official Debian service and will be available from Backports are packages from the testing distribution recompiled for the current stable (or even oldstable) to provide users of the stable distribution with new versions of some packages, like the Linux kernel, the Iceweasel browser or the suite, without sacrificing the general stability of the system.

The archive currently has packages backported for the Lenny distribution (how many?), but the infrastructure to accept packages for the upcoming Squeeze release is already in place, to allow Debian Installer images to configure the backports repository by default without generating errors on user systems. The service for Squeeze will be enabled at a later date, after the release.

Because of some limitations in the Debian Bug Tracking System, any bugs relevant to backported packages still have to be reported to the debian-backports list, which will now also move on

Debian Multimedia :: Official Policy For Newer Versions Of KDE?

Feb 27, 2011

I just wanted to ask about official opinion or policy concerning newer versions of KDE. Is 4.6 still so buggy or unstable to be included in experimental? What steps are going to be made concerning KDE and what when? I don't like GNOME, KDE 3.5 is out of the game now in 6.0 and KDE 4.4 is IMHO all but mature and finished. So I am not sure what to do now, Kubuntu is buggy and don't like it but they have 4.6...

Debian Installation :: How Long Takes Rebuilding Official Kernel ?

Jan 2, 2011

Here are 2 questions

1.In the last line of the debian kernel handbook 4.2.2 Applying patches

It is possible to apply extra patches to the source before starting the build. First, you should apply the existing patches by running:

You will then find the patched source in the subdirectories debian/build/source_arch_none (default) and debian/build/source_arch_featureset (featuresets added).

You should apply the extra patches in the appropriate subdirectory. where can I find the "extra patchies" and how to do?

2.Even though More than 8 hours have passed, 4.2.3 Building many packages

To build all possible packages for this architecture, run:

To build all architecture-dependent packages, run:

To build all architecture-independent packages, run:

The 1st command still working. what is the all possible packages? and what I am doing?

I am just trying to rebuild debian linux kernel 2.6.26-2, Did I misunderstand?

Debian Hardware :: ATI Radeon HD3200 And Official Driver In Squeeze?

Apr 5, 2010

I am using the latest squeeze (2.6.32-6 kernel) on a Thinkpad X100e.Most things works fine (after some tinkering though) but I cannot install the official ATI driver.I have tried:1) Downloaded the latest official drivers from ATI's site.a) If I choose install, it says that everything works but the driver is not actually installed. After reboot I don't have X anymoreb) If I choose build packages for Debian testing, the packages are not built. 2) Downloaded the not so latest official drivers. Same as in case 1)3) Tried to install them with the sgfxi script. The script reports a success but still after a reboot, I have no X.4) Tried to apt-get install fglrx-driver package from sid. Everything installs fine, after reboot I have X but no 3d acceleration.

Debian :: Strange Link Gets Me To Different Sites?

Apr 19, 2010

Trying again here.. no-one on reddit seems to respond..It initially happened here (it was deleted, you can try the lower links.) Sometimes one, sometimes both of these links gets me to 'attack sites', it starts with both, then to one, and then neither does it. I am on Debian Lenny, Both Iceweasel 3.0.6-3(firefox), epiphany2.22.3-9, elinks0.11.4-3 and firefox 3.6.3 sometimes do this for me. It doesn't seem to happen if you enter it into the adress bar, but it does when you follow it by clicking.[URL]..Someone else reported it too, from XP w/ Firefox. The adress bar tells me it is the but the screen doesn't. (Worry my computer is compromised..)

Links it send me too, something on,, and a whole range of varying other sites. So can you reproduce/any idea what this could be? I do worry about having some malware on firefox and such, also besides this, but as i said, it happens with other browsers. I have add-on flashblock, noscript, redditreveal, socialite, trackmenot, had tree style tab until i found it wasn't usefull enough. I also noticed that control+k gets me to (wtf is up with that??), and there was the random site you get to when you misclick.(Which i was able to disable.) I am gradually getting more and more pissed off and suspicious about firefox. (as on my computer.)

Firefox also seems start reading/writing from disk suddenly. (I use iotop when i think it shouldn't be writing sometimes.) Perhaps i should try set something up to record what writes to disk.

Debian :: Link Root Name To Password During Log In?

Feb 15, 2011

I know there has to be a way to log in as root through the GUI. I reverted back to the old GDM to get this problem fixed but it took out packages that I needed and the problems started which required me to reload Squeeze via the 8 DVDs. I don't want any posts talking about the dangers of logging in as root as I know what the consequences are. I don't want to play in the terminal mode either. I created an Admin passwd during installation. how to link the Root name to the Password during log in.

Software :: Pilot-link In Debian ?

May 17, 2011

I'm using jpilot with an old palm pilot. But, I can't get it to regularly sync. I read the README files from the pilot-link package, and did once get it to sync, but I can't seem to do it again.

The stuff I did was something along the lines of running the following commands:


I'm not sure exactly if this is what I did to get it to sync the one time, but those commands are from the README.usb file of the Debian package pilot-link, which I used.

It doesn't work now, and I'd hate to have to keep entering some variation of the above commands each time. There is another file, called README.Debian, that presumably tells users how to set it up to work once and for all. The problem is I don't really understand what the file is instructing.

Anyway, some of what the README.Debian says is:


I haven't a clue what they're talking about here. Where is this "environment variable $PILOTPORT"? Why replace something that's concrete like /dev/pilot with something vague like whatever this "$PILOTPORT" is (again, another digression)?

Debian Multimedia :: KDE 4.4.x Not In Repository?

Apr 16, 2010

So I recently moved from Ubuntu 10.04 to Debian (I'm tired of Ubuntu assuming everything I want). As much as I like how Debian doesn't result in me uninstalling several hundred MB of packages, it also doesn't have the latest stuff.I'm using sid AND experimental repositories and neither of them let me use the later KDEs. I want the new KDE, its significantly better but I have no idea how to get it with Debian's repos.Also, how am I supposed to install the nvidia drivers in synaptic? I had to download them from nvidia's website and log out into a command line. To make matters more confusing, it asked for gcc 4.4 but I do have that (as well as all other c++ 4.4 related packages). I can ignore the gcc warning and it installs just fine anyway. I can deal with installing the drivers from the command line but its REALLY annoying when you have to do that after every kernel update, so i'd rather have the package manager do it for me.I am so far very unimpressed with the way Debian is maintained. Its missing many packages ubuntu came with too. I have other problems as well but I've managed to fix them or I'll work on them more later.

Debian :: How To Know What Is Nearest Repository

Mar 5, 2010

I will install debian stable in a new laptop, in my country there is an official repo but I'm not sure if choose it is the best option, because in my country the ISPs don't have a backbone, so it is probably that if I want to connect to my country repo maybe I'm going trough Miami or LA or something else, so my question is: is there a command to help me to choose what is the nearest repo to me?

Debian :: Filezilla Install / Apt Repository

Sep 12, 2015

I have been trying to install Filezilla on a virtual server and my laptop. Both are running Debian 8.1 Jessie. The former is running the 4.1.5 kernel and the latter 3.16.0.

running Code: Select allsudo apt-get install filezilla

installed filezilla on the virtual server. It fails on my laptop:

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package filezilla

Code: Select allaptitude search filezilla
and Code: Select allapt-cache search filezilla
brings up nothing.

I assume I must simply add the apt repository. I have only managed to find a repo for Ubuntu at [URL] ..... I don't know the differences (if any) between packages in Ubuntu and Debian but since the repo describes itself as having been ported from Debian, I assume there are differences.

I have downloaded the filezilla package from the Filezilla site [URL] ...., but every reference I find to installing Filezilla on Debian discusses apt-get so this is my preferred option.
