The shell says "tune2fs: command not found".

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 Configuration :: Adding Compex ReadyLink NIC To Debian Lenny?

Nov 4, 2010

I have added a 10 Mbps network card to my SGI O2 MIPS workstation running Debian Lenny running the 26-2 kernel. The workstation already has an onboard NIC which is working fine.(eth0).

lspci -v shows ths card as:-00:03.0 Ethernet controller: Compex ReadyLink 2000 (rev 0a) Flags: medium devsel, IRQ 18 I/O ports at 1800 [disabled] [size=32] Upon googling I found out that this card is an NE2000 clone. I downloaded the latest 2.6.36 kernel sources and did the following:-

1. Make Menuconfig
2. Loaded an alternate kernel config file (my working kernel config file)
3. In DeviceDrivers->Network device support->Ethernet (10 or 100 Mbit)

I selected ASIX AX88796 as the help associated with this showed it as an NE 2000 clone. configured it to be a module and did make, make_modules and make_install. Edited /etc/Modules to load ax88796 and added an alias eth1 ax88796 to this file. copied the new kernel to the /boot and did a reboot, the machine booted up fine and udev -r showed the 2.6.36 kernel and lsmod showed ax88796 loaded. But, Iam not able to bring up eth1 using:-

ifup eth1
The error messages given are:-
SIOCSIFADDR: No such device
eth1: ERROR while getting interface flags: No such device
SIOCSIFNETMASK: No such device

Debian Installation :: Debian/Lenny On A Clamshell IBook?

May 3, 2010

I'm trying to install Debian/Lenny on a iBook clamshell. I couldn't seem to burn an install CD that the iBook would recognize, so I eventually copied the contents of the CD onto a self-powered USB drive and I can now get the iBook to boot off of that thru open firmware. However, when I get to the Debian installer main menu, it still won't read the CD, and apparently it does not have network drivers to install over Ethernet. Is there any way I can supply a driver for the ethernet interface (lspci reports that its a sun GEM ethernet interface) or somehow convince the installer to install from the content of the USB drive (which is a duplicate of what's on the installer CD)? Heck, if it'd be easier to get the Airport interface running to reach the Internet I'd be up for that too.

Mar 29, 2011

I have problem with loging, actually iptables logs a data but it seems that for some reasons does not writes in a log file:

iptables -L -v
Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT 406 packets, 124K bytes)
pkts bytes target prot opt in out source destination

Debian :: How To Set Up PPPoE Connection On Debian Lenny?

Aug 16, 2010

I've found that I need to use pppoeconf, but it doesn't work. I have default Debian kernel with PPPOE module. After looking for the modem it gives me the following message:"Sorry, I scanned 1 interface, but the Access Concentrator of you provider did not respond. Please check your network and modem cables. Another reason for the scan failure may also another pppoe process which controls the modem."pppoeconf detected the interface successfully (eth0, I have only one interface), but doesn't work. It does, however, work with my router connecting without any issues.

Debian :: Lenny Vs Squeeze?

Feb 13, 2011

Now that the stable version of Squeeze is available, the newbie that I am is asking himself this almost existential question: should I get Squeeze or stick to Lenny?Some arguments in favors of Lenny that are coming into his mind are that there is more material, tutorials, in brief, more resources to find as to learn and solve problems.

But is this true and if yes, is it a reason?What about security?There is also this widespread saying that tells to always get the last release for performance and security reasons.Being in this position where I obviously don't have a lot of knowledge and experience to judge myself with all the elements, assessing thoroughly all the differents factors, I would have like to listen you opinion(s) on it.

Debian :: Lenny - No Web Connection ?

May 9, 2010

Ive just installed debian-Lenny, and, with all other applications Ive installed therewith working well, I cannot get any kind of web connection to run.

I'll mention at the outset, I do use web from this same computer without problems via either live-CD or usb linux... this question concerns only my recent Lenny install, which will not connect whatever I try.

Any web address I try, and with whatever browser, gives me the same "cannot find address.html" or cannot connect screen...Ive tried the default browser, konqueror, and a lynx type text browser... none will connect to web.

Secondly I'll note, I have tried installing httpd apps...X11 seems to be there... this is installing with synaptic, so, I would think it should have picked up whatever was missing, web connect wise. At this point it looks like Lenny just doesnt work with my working internet connection...that in turn seems unreasonable(!).
