General :: Debian Lenny Unable To Log In Over SSH Or Straight To The Server

Mar 10, 2010

I have installed Debian lenny with software RAID0 (i think it makes no sence to my problem but maybe...) I have installed apache2+php+MySQL (everything worked) I have installed proftpd (to enable users to put files over FTP) after this i tried to connect over SSH to my server i have got:


$ ssh -l shark -v
OpenSSH_5.1p1 Debian-5, OpenSSL 0.9.8g 19 Oct 2007
debug1: Reading configuration data /etc/ssh/ssh_config
debug1: Applying options for *


I thought it is problem with SSH i have tried to connect with another machine over putty, but no success... then i have removed ~/.ssh dir and tried to connect again... i got the same error. Then i connected keybord and monitor to my Linux box, tried to connect there... no success... neither root or my regular user shark. but i should mention my FTP users who have shell: /bin/ftp (symlink to /bin/false) log into the system and then automatically disconnect...

i have tried to boot my linux box to debian safe mode... it asked for a root pass. after i provided correct root pass it didn't fit. I remember once i have made my linux boot to init 1 without asking to provide a pass (it was mandriva Free 2005 or 2006.0) how to do it with a debian machine using grub or any other fixing possibilities?

P.S. i can not how provide server side /var/log/syslog or any other info because i cannot log into my Linux "server"

General :: Debian Lenny 2.6.34 Kernel Panic - Not Syncing VFS - Unable To Mount Root Fs On Unknown-block(0,0)

May 17, 2010

I have attempted to install kernel 2.6.34 and 2.6.33 kernels with this Debian howto [url] Everything worked without any errors until I went to boot into the new kernel. When I receive this kernel panic output Kernel panic - not syncing VFS: unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)

It also spits out something about being unable to access ext2 FS. I googled this symptom and have seen that it is fairly common, but everyone's error seems somewhat unrelated. I used the same kernel configuration as the one that is currently working, to keep things simple.

And here is what my menu.list looks like:

General :: Installing CUPS On Debian Lenny Server - No GUI

Sep 14, 2010

I have installed CUPS on my Debian 5 Lenny server. I do not have a GUI installed, only SSH to command line.

I cannot get CUPS to let me browse to the html interface from another machine. I believe that CUPS is running only on localhost because when I run


I get


When I browse (or telnet) to port 631 from another machine it refuses the connection, if I telnet from my Debian server to port 631 it connects.

My cups.conf is


I'm not sure how to make it allow me to browse from another machine that does have a GUI so I can configure a printer.

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).

Debian :: Unable To Install Java On Lenny 5.0?

Jan 23, 2011

I guess I am still a beginner since I can't do this. I was able to install Java in another computer successfully. I have both running now. The successful one, had a folder for firefox the one with the problem does not have that folder, (firefox). The instuctions I trying to follow are here: [URL]

Not having a firefox folder I installed using /usr/lib/mozilla/plugin . But the plugin has an X attached to the respective icon in /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins.

[URL] This website seems to offer the solution to my problem, I will need help in undoing my previous steps or in removing the incorrect plugin. But will I still need a firefox folder or directory as I have on the other machine? I have a K7S5A PRO MB and Athlon Xp 1800 + processor.

Debian Configuration :: Unable To Use RAID On Lenny To Squeeze Update

Mar 29, 2010

Have my proxy running on Lenny and tried to upgrade to squeeze. Originally the system was installed on Etch and upgrading to Lenny was no problem. In the system i have two RAID1 volumes, md0 for / and md1 for /home. For upgrading i added the sources to my apt.conf and startet dist-upgrade. During the installation procedure, when installing udev I was advised to install the new kernel first and continue upgrade after booting the kernel. so I installed the kernel by "apt-get install linux-image-2.6-686. When generating initramfs there was a message, that there are no arrays defined in /etc/mdadm/mdadm.conf I took a look and there were none. mdadm seems to have been update before.

I then added the lines for RAID definition and added the data for UUID The UUID I got from the output of "mdadm --detail /dev/md0"
What I don't understand: blkid gives the same UUIDs for the first partitions of the RAID and a different UUID for /dev/md0 and /dev/md1 than mdadm --detail The update of initramfs for kernel 2.6.32 then gives this result:

update-initramfs -u -k 2.6.32-3-686
update-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-2.6.32-3-686
W: Possible missing firmware /lib/firmware/e100/d102e_ucode.bin for module e100
W: Possible missing firmware /lib/firmware/e100/d101s_ucode.bin for module e100

The situation: There are 3 sites listed on the server, All 3 on different virtual hosts (obviously).

I use a linksys router ( with dmz pointing to (server) The sites on the server: (but appearently not geek enough)

General :: Unable To Access Bugzilla After Lenny Upgrade

Jan 2, 2011

I was able to successfully upgrade my debian server from Etch to Lenny, however now I am unable to access Bugzilla via the establish url's.

The error I am getting is:

Internal Server Error The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

Please contact the server administrator, [no address given] and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.

Here is my error.log output:

[Sun Jan 02 10:58:55 2011] [error] [client] Not a subroutine reference at Bugzilla/ line 59.
[Sun Jan 02 10:58:55 2011] [error] [client] Compilation failed in require at line 34.


Ok so after all the searching I did it came down to the simple fact that Bugzilla 2.22 doesn't work with Perl 5.10. I am in the process of upgrading to Bugzilla3 and running into some issues there getting my backup database loaded due to the install couldn't finish.

When you upgrade you are prompted to create a new database or use one already created. When I selected to use one already created is caused a break in the installation and I now I can't seem to get the installation to finish.

Networking :: Setting Up A VPN With OpenVPN On A Debian Lenny Server?

Sep 9, 2010

I'm setting up a VPN with openVPN on a debian lenny server. I successfully installed it in the server, then created the certificates and both client (winXP) and server config files. For the client I use openVPN gui. I tested the tunnel and everything went just fine. I even can ping the openVPN server from the XP client.But thats all. I can't ping any machine behind the openvpn server.Some facts that you may find useful to help me with this issue are:

- The openVPN server is not the default gateway of the LAN. The dg is a pfsense server
- I dont have iptables enabled (policy of all chains are ACCEPT).
- I have configured ip forwarding (echo "1" >/proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward)


I have checked and all seems to be OK. I think that the problem is connected with routing the traffic from the vpn to my LAN but I don't know how to do that (besides the push route line in the server.conf).

Server :: How To Setup Diskless PXE Client On Debian Lenny (HPC)

Aug 8, 2010

I currently have a debian lenny high performance cluster running seamlessly using dhcp and tftpd-hpa. All nodes are completely diskless, and i would like to keep it that way. I now would like to have a client boot over local into a full KDE desktop.

Here's the cache.
1. I would like the client to also be a node. I would like it to handle processing as the other nodes do, but this one with a full desktop, with ALL data and privileges accessible.
2. The client will have its own workstation graphics. It will need to have that driver loaded without slowing the system.
3. Client will need to be able to use its own usb, bd-rom, dvd, audio, etc. even though it will be booting into the HPC.
4. Wireless. I cannot run 70 ft of lan across an apartment. not happening.

The idea is a media center applicable "powerhouse" with high-end power and graphics for easy media editing, 3d creation, and gaming. Will also be used for webcache over all local, file sharing, and other server applications.

HPC specs:
-headnode: hp compaq p4-ht 3.2 ghz, 4x500gb, 4gb mem, gigabit ethernet, wireless-N
-nodes: 4x p4-ht 2.2 ghz, 2gb mem, no-name brand slim desktops; 2x panasonic toughbooks p4-mobile 1.8 ghz, 1.5gb mem; 3x gateway p3 unknown specs; and 1 hp 530 notebook 1.6ghz core2 duo, 1.5gb mem
-client: hp compaq core2 duo 2.13 ghz, 4gb mem, wireless n, bd-rom, 2x dvd-rom, usb 3.0 card, bluetooth, 1gb AGP nvidia geforce 6800 dual-dvi, no hd.
I need to know how to set up this PXE.

Server :: Debian Lenny - Enable Apache Core Dumps?

Jan 29, 2011

My Apache web server (respectively a child process) is crashing several times a day. I wanted to find the exact reason and activated the core dumps but even though the crashing-issues continue, the core dumps were never created. I have found several howto's which basically point to the same steps:

- set "ulimit -c unlimited"

- add "CoreDumpDirectory" directive into apache2.conf (Debian's httpd.conf)

Another info I've found is that /proc/sys/fs/suid_dumpable shouldn't be 0 - so on one howto it said to echo 2 into it, on another one to echo 1 to /proc/sys/fs/suid_dumpable - didn't work with neither of them.

Server :: Defining Persistent Device Naming On A Debian Lenny?

Nov 25, 2010

I have a problem defining persistent device naming on a Debian Lenny server.I have:RAID1 controller on the server machine with two SCSI disks.external storage with RAID5. I have / mount on the first partition on the server SCSI disk and /storage mount on the external storage. I'm experiencing a problem: The system recognizes the system disk (RAID 1), as sda or sdb randomly.I want: To control the recognition, and tell the system that sda (sda1) will always be the system disk.The motivation: GRUB is configured to work with sda, and when the system disk doesn't, boot process fails, and I end up in the initramfs shell-like interface.


Booting the kernel
mount:mounting /dev on /root/dev failed: No such file or directory
mount:mounting /sys on /root/sys failed: No such file or directory
