Debian Multimedia :: Make A Dialog With Zenity Which Would Show An Updating List?

Jan 4, 2011

Is there a way to make a dialog with zenity which would show an updating list? Zenity does it with progress, but I didn't figure out if it's possible to do it with the list. I.e. for example, I want to monitor something, and update the dialog with new list periodically. Is it even possible? zenity can wait for data from stdin, but it just adds stuff to the list. May be there are some control sequences which clear the list in the dialog?

For example:

{ echo "Foo"; sleep 2; echo "Bar"; } | zenity --list --title='Dynamic list?' --text='Some data' --column='values'

How can I instead of adding Bar, replace the Foo with it?

Is there a way to stop GRUB2 from updating grub.cfg with new entries after an update? It shits me because it goes and writes over all my custom modifications of current entries.. e.g:

"Windows 7 Home Premium" (which I made), gets changed back to:

"Windows 7 (loader) (/dev/sda2)"

General :: List Installed Packages In Debian From A File?

Jun 25, 2010

I have a system that will not boot as /usr has been destroyed and I would like to get a list of installed packages before re-installing. I know that it's possible to get this using dpkg or apt, but I cannot run those.

Where in the filesystem is this information stored and what's the best way to get a list of installed apps from the files?

Debian :: Wine 1.1.42 Not Updating?

Nov 21, 2010

I first went to edit the sources.list to add the Wine repository (or something, I'm not sure).

I then got this output trying to add the gpg key.

debian:/home/debian# wget -O - | apt-key add
gpg: can't open `': No such file or directory
--2010-11-20 21:54:52--


At first it worked, but now it's giving me this and the fact that it won't update isn't doing me any good.

Debian :: Precautions When Updating Unstable?

May 5, 2010

What is the recommended way to do updates when running sid (especially those involving updates of xorg or desktop environments as they should not be running at that time)? I imagine this would be safe:

1. # apt-get update
2. # apt-get dist-upgrade -d
3. Switch to a text mode terminal (say, tty1).
4. # /etc/init.d/kdm stop
5. # apt-get dist-upgrade

Or simply using init 1.

Debian Configuration :: Kernel Not Updating To 3.16

Jul 26, 2015

Upgraded Wheezy to Jessie, by changing my apt sources to point at stable instead of wheezy. Ran upgrade, and dist-upgrade, all fine etc.

Then tried to update the kernel by installing linux-image-amd64 package .. seemed to work fine, but after a reboot my kernel version still says 3.10.23

What have I missed?

Code: Select allroot@hostname:~# apt-cache search linux-image
linux-headers-3.16.0-4-amd64 - Header files for Linux 3.16.0-4-amd64
linux-image-3.16.0-4-amd64 - Linux 3.16 for 64-bit PCs
linux-image-3.16.0-4-amd64-dbg - Debugging symbols for Linux 3.16.0-4-amd64
linux-image-amd64 - Linux for 64-bit PCs (meta-package)

Debian :: Updating Libc6 W/o Upgrading?

May 17, 2010

I run Etch. Yes, it's oldstable, but Lenny and Squeeze annoy the heck out of me. However, I'm trying to install the latest version (5.1) of Google Earth, but it requires >=glibc-2.4. Etch only offers 2.3.something. The earlier version of GE I have (4.3) does work, but is apparently no longer supported by Google as it fails to connect every time I fire it up. I found Lenny does have the required libc6 version. Can I update the libc6 packages by installing them directly (separately downloaded packages) or do I get the dependency hell that I want to avoid?

General :: Evolution Task List Reminder (sync With Phone And Online Task List)

May 19, 2011

I have my task list in evolution (mainly so it can sync with my phone and online task list) but I always forget to look at the task list. Is there an application or plugin which periodically displays the contents of the tasklist or even better, it briefly displays the most urgent/important tasks when I login? Or anything else which automatically displays the most important tasks. Currently I have to open the task list and look at them (which I usually forget). I do not mean some kind of alarm when the task is due but more a daily reminder of what to do.

Debian Installation :: Updating Three Machines With One Download?

Aug 21, 2011

I have now got three machines with Debian on in my home. I use Mobile Broadband with a very modest monthly limit and remember somehow using Synaptic to gather either Updates or packages to download on one machine where there was another type of internet and could then move the packages back to my computer. Can anyone here remind me of what I would have done there or suggest a means of getting these three updated without blowing my limit. I'd either use a relative's broadband and my netbook, or do the Updates once at home and move the packages to the other two machines.

I'm using Debian 6.01, Gnome edition, 64 bit, on an Atom N450 netbook, a 3ghz dual core AMD pc and a a 2 ghz single core AMD pc, whatever of this is relevant. They have slightly different programs installed but are at the same stage of not being updated yet, with 252mb of them to add.

Debian Installation :: Updating While Moving To New Machine?

Sep 9, 2011

My Debian Lenny box has two hard drives: a smaller one, upon which I installed the system and a 500GB drive which, during installation, I assigned for mounting as the "/home" directory. A few days ago, the smaller (system) hard drive crashed. Although fsck was able to make the drive mountable again, many system files (esp. things like inittab) were lost.

Since the machine, itself, had actually been pretty old when I first installed Debian (Etch, originally), I am going to be replacing it with a new system and I have a few questions about getting this all done.

First of all, the old computer was a Pentium 4 and the new one is a Dual-core, 64-bit Pentium (E6600) with 4GB RAM and a 500GB SATA drive. I'd like to install 64-bit Debian Squeeze onto that drive and, since I've never used the 64-bit Debian before, would like to know if there are any pitfalls or caveats - especially any dire reasons I should stick with 32 bits, instead.

Next, I would like to keep the other 500GB (IDE) drive mounted on "/home" so that my things would be where they already were on the old system - especially files relating to Iceweasel and Icedove. Of course, there are no binaries on that drive, since I had all of that on the drive that crashed, but are there any other things I must take into consideration? Also, what would be the best way to make that drive "/home" during the new installation without wiping it out, but having it ready for when I create the users so I can point them to their appropriate directories?

Finally, since the old computer had been an Etch system that had been upgraded to Lenny and since I would be installing Squeeze (and, likely, the 64-bit Squeeze, at that) onto the new system, would there be any problems with the above scenario, considering the potential of older configuration files, etc. on the old "/home" drive?

My subject line says, "Updating while moving to new machine," but these really may not be "update" questions, per se. Then again, the presence of that old hard drive does introduce some update-like elements into the equation, and that is why I am asking these questions.

Debian :: Can Force Overwrite When Updating / Upgrading

Aug 5, 2015

While updating and upgrading, I got this at the command prompt:

Code: Select all ==> Modified (by you or by a script) since installation.
 ==> Package distributor has shipped an updated version.
   What would you like to do about it ?  Your options are:
    Y or I  : install the package maintainer's version
    N or O  : keep your currently-installed version
      D     : show the differences between the versions
      Z     : start a shell to examine the situation

 The default action is to keep your current version.

Debian :: Updating The Kernel Without An Internet Connection?

May 19, 2011

I recently installed Debian "Squeeze" onto a Thinkpad T420, alongside Windows 7. During the installation Debian was unable to detect my NIC (Intel 82579LM), but otherwise the installation completed normally. I've installed the required e1000e drivers, and added "alias eth0 e1000e" to the modules file. Using lspci I can see that the computer detects the card, but still fails to load the drivers for it.

I'm at a bit of a loss, as this is my first time using Linux. After a bit of searching it looks like the 2.6.38 kernel resolves the issue with this card, so I guess that's my next step.Unfortunately all the installation instructions I've found assume an internet connection.Is there a simple way to update the kernel without a connection, or -even better- an install disc with 2.6.38 so I can start from scratch?

Then is connects nicely and everything works fine until next time I boot
