Debian :: Encrypt Partitions On A Usb Stick Using Squeeze?

Oct 19, 2010

I am trying to encrypt partitions on a usb stick using squeeze. I will be installing Arch on that stick, but as I am using Debian as the OS to do the encrypting I thought here was the best place to ask. I've not had any dealings with encryption before so i'm a little lost. It's not working as I would expect basically - here is the error mssge :

spoovy@peony ~ $ sudo cryptsetup -c aes-xts-plain -y -s 512 luksFormat /dev/sdb5
This will overwrite data on /dev/sdb5 irrevocably.
Are you sure? (Type uppercase yes): YES
Enter LUKS passphrase:
Verify passphrase:
device-mapper: reload ioctl failed: Invalid argument
Failed to setup dm-crypt key mapping for device /dev/sdb5.

Debian :: Hibernation With Two Swap Partitions In Squeeze?

Jul 27, 2010

I have two disks, sda and sdb. Each has a partition that is part of a mdraid array for /. Each one also has a swap partition, and both are used by linux. I've heard that hibernation won't work with two swap partitions. Is there any workaround, other than only using one swap partition?

Debian :: After Upgrading To Squeeze - Can't Mount My HDD Partitions Anymore

Oct 23, 2010

Actually, the /root- filesystem still gets mounted, for all the others I get the following message:

When I type

I get:

But this only happens when using my custom kernel ( When I use the kernel which was automatically installed (2.6.32-5-amd64), the problem doesn't occur.

Is there a kernel option I should have turned on?

I checked the UUID-numbers from the error messages with the output of "blkid" - they match. The rootfs is on sda2 (which gets mounted without error) - so I tried applying the fstab mount options of sda2 to the other partitions - same problem still. what makes the root partition so special? Is it because it's defined by grub.cfg?

Debian Installation :: All Partitions Mounted At Boot Time (Squeeze)

Dec 5, 2010

I am using Gnome and Squeeze. I am wondering if I have a problem of understanding, or a problem that I found with Gnome.

My configuration is with a 3 hard disk system.

disk1 (Debian)
disk2 (XP and Fedora)
Disk3 (W7 and a Data partition)

When I boot and log in, all partitions for disk2 and disk3 are mounted read-write. Only by going to command line am I able to unmount the drives with the following sequence

cd /media
umount *
umount *

I should be able to mount and umount a drive by providing or responding to a root password. But I am not given the option to present a password. My request is blocked.

I also do not want to see the drives remounted after a boot. I tried to find out how this was managed, but I was unable to discover the module and it's parameter list that controls or does this task.

Debian :: Migration Check List - To Check - Prepare Or Reconfigure

Feb 3, 2010

I am new to Debian but not Linux-based systems. I have been experimenting a lot with Debian Lenny/Squeeze. I am growing more comfortable each day with the Debian design. Yet there remain many unexplored areas. I am creating a migration check list. Things to check, prepare, or reconfigure when moving from one Linux-based system to Debian.

I have a good computer background and my current check list probably is fairly good. Yet I would appreciate input and opinions from experienced Debian users of things to watch in such a migration. Login defs, passwd/group files, different directory locations, keymaps, services and daemons, etc. I am not too concerned with the desktop as I plan to stick with KDE 3.5 for a while and I can basically move those settings across.

I have a 2009 Mac Pro with two CPUs and 8 GB of memory which is totally overpowered for Mac OS X.

Ubuntu :: How To Prepare HD For Dual Boot

Apr 20, 2011

Just given a laptop with xp installed. I want to dualboot BUT my hd defragger shows bits of the xp os spread out over the entire drive so I can't partition without making xp corrupted. Is there any way to move the xp bits as to make a clean space on the hd to partition for ubuntu. I wouldn't mind wiping the drive and reinstalling xp to get a clean space to partition but I hate the time wasted for all the windows updates.

SUSE :: Using Live CD To Prepare Disks

Nov 5, 2010

I will be migrating SLES-10-SP2 operating system to new hard drives. I will be cloning most of the file systems. I had downloaded openSeSU-11-3-gnome Live CD and burned an ISO image. I want to install new drives in the PC and use the Live CD to create partitions to use in a RAID system. I have seen on the web that the Live CD can be used to install the OS on a machine but I did not see any option that just give the ability to use YAST to partition and create RAID system. Thus my question is how can I use the Live CD just to prepare the disk without installing the OS?

Ubuntu :: 10.04 - Prepare Disk Space With Empty Array

Sep 30, 2010

I have a PC with Windows 2000 Pro installed in an NTFS partition of 60GB. My rest hard disk (500GB) is empty, no partition at all. When I run Ubuntu 10.04 installation after step number 3 I get a weird step number 4 showing prepare partitions with an empty array and no available command button at the bottom! So I can not create any partition... Also in step 4 I never see the "prepare disk space" menu. If I use a 9.04 Ubuntu CD and I try to install I get every menu fine as expected. I even tried the 10.04 CD to another PC with Windows XP PRO and the installer worked as expected for partitions.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Prepare Large Amounts Of Images For Web?

Oct 27, 2010

I've been using GIMP's 'save for the web' tool to reduce the file sizes of images.

I now have a directory with about 50 images. I'd like to avoid processing them all by hand.

I have a (very) basic knowledge of programming, and I'm comfortable with the commandline. I don't mind doing some homework on how to use new tools.

All I'm really concerned with here is reducing the file sizes of the images I have.

What possible pathways are there for me to prepare large amounts of images for the web?

Debian Configuration :: Dropbox Install For Debian Squeeze From Source Code

Feb 19, 2011

how to install Dropbox for Debian Squeeze from source.Please read everything before you begin. I prepared it as I installed Dropbox for my own system. Please Note: I use sudo, you may have to use root or 'su' from the command line. If you don't know the difference between sudo and su, then you shouldn't try this until you know. At the time I did this, the lastest dropbox version was 0.6.7.

Debian Multimedia :: Squeeze Compiling Dwm From Debian Source / Reality Check

Aug 18, 2011

Below is the recipe I've used to compile dwm from source on Squeeze

apt-get install devscripts debian-keyring
apt-get build-dep dwm

It all seems to work, however debuild gave an error about secret keys. Is this a sensible procedure? What happens in the (probably unlikely) event there is another source patch?I've gone to a tiling window manager as the result of the purchase of a wide screen LCD monitor. I like to have some stuff down the right hand side when running Firefox and OpenOffice in the main panes. Any configuration tricks welcome. Modern screens are the wrong shape!

I installed Debian Squeeze with Gnome today. I'm unable to change from the default icon theme. I can change themes, but the icon theme remains default.Things I've tried:

- .gtkrc-2.0 in my home is auto-generated, .gtkrc.mine does not exist.

# -- THEME AUTO-WRITTEN DO NOT EDIT include "/usr/share/themes/Darklooks/gtk-2.0/gtkrc" include "/home/haunted/.gtkrc.mine"


- I've tried installing a theme into my /home/.themes.

- I've reinstalled gnome-settings-daemon.

- Tried changing themes then doing a full reboot.

- Cursed it periodically.

Debian :: Installing Command Line Debian Squeeze System On Eee PC 701

May 29, 2011

I have been trying to install a command line Debian Squeeze system on n Eee PC 701., but have run into a number of problems:

1) All install info I can find assumes that the person wants to install a GUI system of some sort.
2) The Eee PC has a unique 2 MB. partition that needs to be preserved, so no guided install.
3) The Eee PC has an SSD instead of an HD. Most postings I have seen recommend an install without a swap partition, but the install (both live and text) seems to choke and despite a fresh formatting of the existing partition, claims to be overwriting existing files.
4) I can understand from the wiki that the Eee PC wireless driver (Atheros) should be included in Squeeze, but when the wireless connection and password is added, the installer claims that the password is not correct, despite me having checked it a number of times.

I hope someone can help me out. I just want to use the Eee PC for low resource stuff done on the cli like using a text based web browser to access the net through a wireless router and to hook it up to an external USB HD and to my stereo, to play my music collection.
