Debian :: Running A Gnome Lenny LiveCD In Virtualbox?

Jul 31, 2010

I have created a squashfs live CD from HD (Gnome - lenny ). It runs like a charm in a "fromhd" mode but when I try the iso or even a burned CD in virtualbox on the same PC, X does not start. It says:

Failed to load module "type1" (module does not exist, 0) /usr/bin/xorg: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers// undefined symbol: xf86GTFMode

Debian :: Lenny Xfce On Virtualbox - Can't Change Resolution

Mar 11, 2010

Well I have installed lenny from netinstall, with Xfce on a virtual machine, everything runs smooth and I really like how does it work, I just have a little big problem, the resolution is too high, it is higher than the host resolution, if I have to work in the down part of the screen I have to scroll down in host, it is kinda annoying, under screen config (right click>configuration>screen config) for resolution only the default option is available. I have googled and I have found that /etc/X11/xorg.conf must be modified to use another resolution, but I'm not sure of what to change or what to do exactly.

Networking :: Debian Lenny 5.0.7 AMD 64 Connection Stops Running?

Feb 23, 2011

I have a Dell PowerEdge 2900 on which I just installed from scratch Debian Lenny 5.0.7 AMD 64bit. I am having issues where when I ifup a second nic card the server will maintain connectivity for a period then all connectivity is lost and I have to ifdown all eth interfaces and bring them back up to regain connectivity. Here's how the server is laid out: I have 12gb or ram with 2 Xeon 5450s in the server, as I mentioned it's a Dell Poweredge 2900. It has a build in Perc6i raid controller with 2 drives in Raid 1 for the OS and 4 drives in Raid 5 for storage. It also has a Perc 5e card in it connected to 3x6TB raid arrays. I mention this because they are all sharing the PCI bus if that matters.

The nic cards I started with were the two builtin Broadcoms and lspci reports them both as:

Broadcom Corporation NetXtreme II BCM5708 Gigabit Ethernet (rev 12)

After I started experiencing the problem I added an inexpensive Trendnet based off the Realtek RTL-8169 chip rev(10). Debian sees this card without any need for additional drivers. The Broadcoms required the non-free network drivers provided by and built against the Debian kernel (no custom drivers). One nic card is configured with a public IP address and I use IP tables to reign in the traffic to http and https only. There is also an outbound openvpn tunnel from this machine back to our offices through this interface. The second nic card is hard wired to a mac mini directly and is assigned an 10.x.x.x address. I am able to see the mac mini from it.

The amount of time the network connection stays up doesn't seem to follow any set pattern. I have flood pinged the 10.x.x.x while running apt-get and one time it fails, the next time it doesn't. Sometimes the network connection degrades and I can do an nslookup one second and get nothing and the next I get a response. Finally though it fails and it requires me to ifdown the eth connections and ifup them to get them going again. I don't really see anything in the logs. I've looked in kern.log, messages, syslog and pretty much came up empty, but not 100% certain I'm looking for anything more subtle than obvious errors. The routes all look good too.

Naturally, as Murphy's Law would have it, this is a remote server at a colo so that doesn't make troubleshooting any easier. What I have done to temporarily prevent me from losing complete access to the server is setup a cron script that runs once a minute and pings something. If there is 100% packet loss, it restarts the nics and I'm going again for another arbitrary period of time. Lastly, this has no effect on the OS running. I don't have a hung system when this happens just a trashed network connection.

Debian Multimedia :: Just Installed Squeeze / Running Back To Lenny

Feb 6, 2011

I could not get the hardware to work with Lenny's ancient drivers, so I gave up and decided to upgrade to Squeeze.Well, the hardware works (except sound), but KDE4 is a such a disaster that I want to run not walk! all the way back to Lenny. I'm stunned that after four years of active development, this desktop still doesn't have something as basic as keyboard shortcuts or the ability to place icons where YOU want them.

The widgets frustrate me to no end. The new K menu is impossible to navigate. I'd rather hang myself than use Dolphin as a file manager. KDE4 gives me more notifications than MS Windows' crapware. And it's UGLY !!! The "Oxygen" theme makes me want to tear my eyeballs out.

Debian :: VirtualBox Not Running - Browsers Not Working

Jun 11, 2011

First I wanted to install the proprietary software Virtualbox-PURE cuz there is usb support, I need.

Added the Repository and installed it (virtualbox-4.0) and dkms.
Here is my sources.list
$ cat /etc/apt/sources.list
# Debian Hauptrepos
deb [URL] squeeze main contrib non-free

# Debian Update-Repos
deb [URL] main contrib non-free .....

The result of all is:
virtualbox is still not running. I use experimental branch flash is not working now. flashplugin was installed, I restarted my browsers, not working. I tested it with opera, chromium and iceweasel.

My questions are:
How I ever can go back to stable?
How can I make virtualbox run?
How can I make flash run?

I'm using debian squeeze with gnome 2.30.5. When you need more infos or results of commands I give it to you. 2 days of work and nothing is running.

Debian :: Install On VirtualBox Running On Mac Server

Jun 15, 2011

I am running virtualbox on a Mac Mini Server. I would like to install Debian on it and give it an internal static IP address. E.g.

I am looking at all the downloads. The Mac Mini Server Snow Leopard has no CD/DVD but plenty of disk space.

It will be used as a LAMP webserver, Java, Ghostscript and pdftk but also install ISPConfig on it.

I was looking at this ISO: [URL] Is this ok?

The Mac is a 64 bit Intel based machine. If I wanted 64 bit on the VirtualBox, which 64 bit ISO should I get?

Debian Configuration :: Unabling Eth1 In Lenny W/ Gnome?

Apr 26, 2010

I (and those who kindly helped) went through hell building the driver for mi wireless, but apparently that's over now. The reason I know that is that when I go to System-->Administration-->Network, I can see the interfaces that are detected: Wired Connection, which I enabled by setting the automatic dhcp option, and Wireless Connection, which is not activated. When I double click in Wireless Connection, a window opens with an unchecked box saying "Enable this connection" so I check the box and the previously greyed options become subject for editing. I have two setting I can configure: Wireless Setting, which have Network Name, password type and Network password Connection Settings, which has Configuration, IP Adress, Subnet mask and Gateaway Adress.

Since I'm hopping to get wireless working to a point which i can automatically connect to wireless whose passwords I know or that are open (like un public spaces) I think the best option to choose in Connection Settings-->Configuration is Automatic Configuration (DHCP). When I choose that, all other options under Connections Settings become grayed.

In Wireless Settings-->Password type, the default choice was WPA Personal. Network Name and network password are blank. The problem is that, as it is, the "OK" button of the Network window is grayed out, so the only option is to Cancel, in which case the Wireless Network remains dissabled. I noticed that if I write something (anything) in the field of Network Name (ESSID) the OK button can be selected, but I don't know what should I write in that space. How do I know which name is appropiate? Does it matter? Can I choose whatever name I want?

Debian :: Gnome Won't Save Settings On Logout Lenny?

Oct 9, 2009

When I logout/login to Gnome, and sometimes if I stay logged in for awhile, Gnome resets my desktop settings, especially my remote desktop settings, which is how I remote into this subnet and manage the other web managed things like switches. 1. Can I statically set remote desktop (vino I think) settings so they don't change?2. Are there any gnome applet settings I can change to keep this from happening?

Debian :: Keyboard Layout Switches Accidentaly In Gnome - Lenny

Jan 4, 2010

I use czech QWERTZ keyboard layout, but sometimes it accidentaly switches to (probably) english or US qwerty, so I am unable to write our national characters (which share the keys with numbers on laptop), it writes Y instead of Z etc.

So I am unable to write normal text. I looked in keyboard settings, but it seems to be ok:

layout is "Ĩesko with <|> key" - HP Pavilion ZT11xx - this seems to be OK and it worked without problems before this accidental switch.

there is no other layout than the mentioned one and in Layout settings (hope this is correct as I have this in Czech) I unchecked all boxes in Layout switching.

I absolutely have no idea where is the problem. Maybe it is some keybinding but did not find anything which could do this.

I use Debian Lenny with added a11y apps like Orca etc. called Vinux. I tried to ask there, but currently wihout success.

The whole thread is here: [url]

Debian :: Gnome-power-manager Shutdown Problem In Lenny

Aug 8, 2010

I have upgraded my netbook system to lenny. I got almost every thing working right except gnome-power-manager shutdown event. It shows critical battery level (red color) on its applet on the panel but it does not do the normal safe shutdown action. Instead, it just do a sudden shutdown of the system which causes the lose of some data. Is there any way to solve this issue using lenny's current version (2.22.1-4)?My netbook is AcerOne.

General :: Debian Lenny : How To Install Xfce 4.6 Instead Of Lenny's 4.4

Dec 14, 2009

i was trying to use gnome and kde but i don't like them. I tried xfce and it seem to fit my needs but.My computer is used to be powered on for a weeks. While time passes, a process xfdesktop begin to use more and more memory and to free RAM i need to log out and log in again.

I tried squeeze yesterday on my virtual machine and it has 4.6 and seem not to have that bug, RAM usage is static(yes it still works when i write this and have memory usage 34492k, which is not changing for an hours of usage already), also 4.6 is MUCH better than 4.4.

i already tried adding squeeze to "sources.list" but i can see too many dependencies which should be upgraded if i install 4.6, i'm beginning to afraid it can crash entire GUI(or entire system, i can see there is libc6 required to be updated).
