Debian :: Debconf (dpkg - Reconfigure) On Fresh Jessie Install

Aug 15, 2015

I have a fresh install of Jessie, and am having issues with debconf.

I have been trying to change to mdm from the default lightdm display manager. I have downloaded and installed mdm (apt-get install mdm) but when I run dpkg-reconfigure mdm nothing happens. As I understand it, I should get a menu that lets me choose which display manager to use.

I also installed lirc so I could get my IR remote working again, but when I run dpkg-reconfigure lirc nothing happens. I am supposed to get a menu with various options to choose from.

I have tried dpkg-reconfigure debconf and this gives me the menu with different options to choose, like it should when trying dpkg-reconfigure lirc or dpkg-reconfigure mdm. I tried using dpkg-reconfigure debconf to choose different settings, such as gnome, or editor, but they don't work either.

Ubuntu Servers :: Config - Change / Add From The Default OpenSSH Config Files To Get Tunnelling To Work?

Jul 10, 2011

I'm running Ubuntu Server 11.04 with OpenSSH, trying to create an ssh tunnel (for web traffic) to it from my (also Ubuntu) laptop. This is the command I'm using to create the tunnel:

Code: ssh -ND localhost:8080 george@ I had it all working on a virtual machine.. which was deleted What settings/lines do I need to change/add from the default OpenSSH config files to get tunnelling to work? I've Googled and AllowTcpForwarding is set to yes, as is X11Forwarding.. but it still doesn't work. Chrome can connect to the server, but says the connection was closed before any data was sent.

Software :: Redirecting APT Cache - Can Redirect Cache Of Apt To A Specified Folder Either On Command Line Or Via A Config Setting?

Jan 5, 2011

I was laughing about klackenfus's post with the ancient RH install, and then work has me dig up an old server that has been out of use for some time. It has some proprietary binaries installed that intentionally tries to hide files to prevent copying (and we are no longer paying for support or have install binaries), so a clean install is not preferable.

Basically it has been out of commission for so long, that the apt-get upgrade DL is larger than the /var partition (apt caches to /var/cache/apt/archives).

I can upgrade the bigger packages manually until I get under the threshold, but then I learn nothing new. So I'm curious if I can redirect the cache of apt to a specified folder either on the command line or via a config setting?

Ubuntu :: Reset The Dpkg - Config Box Locked The Apt-get

Apr 6, 2010

I just bumped into somewhat embarassing error, and i cannot find any way to get rid of it. I was installing postgresql-common from the ubuntu repos. The blue configuration box appeared in the terminal i was using (blue configuration tool with the red scrollbar on the right). The thing is, there is nothing i can do with this box (clicking <OK> on the bottom, keybord shortcuts, i tried everything). After a while i just rebooted the terminal and started all over again. I recieved an error "dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem." Running dpkg configure command results in resuming postgresql installation and the blue box of death.

Now the apt-get is useless for all the users on my machine, and 1st core of my CPU is used in 100% all the time. How can i reset the dpkg?

Slackware :: How To Save Needed Modules Config To Create .config?

Apr 9, 2011

I am running a server with a GRSecurity patched Kernel I've tried to optimize the kernel as much as I can and know it (removing options, not needed drivers and so on) and compiled the modules into the kernel (no loadable modules anymore). I've started with Slackware 13.0 and the default config for Still I am not sure what to remove/optimize further now.

My question: Is there a way to boot with a kernel with loadable modules, check which modules are really needed for this hardware, (do something like lsmod) and save the running configuration modules for a next kernel compile to be the default .config instead of writing them down by hand and search for the appropriate names in .config or during menuconfig? (Note: zcat /proc/config.gz > .config is NOT the way I want, as it gives me just the current kernel config)

Ubuntu Servers :: Process Hangs While Cleaning Cache?

Dec 7, 2010

I have a NFS server and I'm periodically cleaning the cache by using the following lines:


/bin/sync; /bin/echo 1 > /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches
/bin/sync; /bin/echo 2 > /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches

during the last days the cleaning process gets stucked at '/bin/echo 2', here's the process data:


27426 root 20 0 5488 704 576 R 100 0.0 896:06.34 /bin/echo 2

the process keeps running, so I find this more strange since it's not in zombie or D state.

Ubuntu Servers :: New User Looking For Drive Config

Feb 4, 2010

I'm planning to take a custom-built machine presently running Windows Home Server and convert it to a Ubuntu server to support the same backup functionality, but also allow me to support other server functions as well (WHS is great for backups and as a file server, but that's about it). The machine has two 1TB 7200 RPM drives. As the primary use for the machine is backups of files stored on the server as well as on the local PCs, I'd like to configure the box to support redundancy across both drives - So if one fails, I still have my data. What would be the recommended configuration of the drives to support this? I plan on using Bacula for the backups (clients and server).

I'll assume the disk format won't be NTFS.If one of the drives fail and its the boot drive, how easy is it to recover the data from the other drive? Just want to make sure there isn't some form of security that would prevent me from reading the data.

I'm new to Linux with only a bit of Unix experience, but I figure I have to start somewhere (and I have a bit of technical expertise, just with the Windows platform) This will also let me start playing with the LAMP stack.

I've installed mailman on 9.10, using apt-get, have apache2 setup already. However I'm getting 403 forbidden issues when trying to access [URL] I may have mucked something up as initially i jumped straight in and created a virtualhost and played around with the URL redirects. but as far as I can see, it's back to its default and it's still not working...

Ubuntu Servers :: Apache Multiple Ports Config?

Mar 28, 2010

I have several sites running on a local server. Currently, they're all running on port 80. I need one particular site (and ONLY that site) to also accept connections on port 81.

If I browse to the server IP x.x.x.x:80 directly, Apache's behaviour of showing the default site should work as usual. But, if I browse to IP x.x.x.x:81, it should show a different site (the one that should be accepting both :80 and :81). This part is very important.

I was hoping something like the following would work, but it didn't Currently x.x.x.x:81 still shows what I've called myport80defaultsite.com below.

Listen 80
Listen 81
<VirtualHost *:80>

Ubuntu :: Reinstall The FTP Servers They Won't Start Because The Config Files Are Gone?

Mar 31, 2010

I built out a headless VMWare v2.0.2 Server. I managed to work all that out but now I'm having some trouble getting my virtual machines on the server. I installed both proftpd and vsftpd but neither server lets me log in. 'Login Failed' is always returned (using the only account on the machine - created during the install).

So I decided to install samba, but samba chokes on large files. I tried over and over again to copy a 10GB VMDK file over samba and it gets to 5% or so and suddenly tells me there is a network problem and dies (which there is no network problem as these machines are all on the same subnet plugged into the same gigabit switch).

So now I'm back to FTP. Unfortunately when I ran apt-get remove proftpd, it didn't remove any of the config files (/etc/proftpd/*) so I manually deleted them. Now when I try to reinstall the FTP servers they won't start because the config files are gone. What's the apt-get syntax to completely uninstall these servers as if they had never been installed so I can start clean? I really don't want to have to do a complete system re-install just to fix 300KB FTP servers.

Ubuntu Servers :: Postfix Config To Catch ALL Emails?

Jul 20, 2010

We have a number of servers at work, some production and some non-production. We run some java applications on these servers. At present these java applications send emails via an SMTP connection to our live email servers.

In production all is well, the java apps send emails to customers. However, in the non-production environments all emails must not be sent out. Instead they must end up in some kind of generic inbox.

We don't want to mess with the production setup at all and it isn't an option to lose the non-prod emails altogether. So on non-prod we can reference another SMTP server and send all emails there. So far I've set up a postfix, dovecot, squirrelmail email server which appears to work.

how do I config my new email server so that any emails sent from our non-prod server to fred@hotmail.com, bill@yahoo.com, jenny@gmail.com etc all end up in one inbox?

Ubuntu Servers :: Integrate A .pac (Proxy Auto-config) Url?

Aug 26, 2010

What I'm trying to do seems pretty straight forward but I can't seem to find any documentation on this searching the "internets" but I think I'm getting mixed in with all the other proxy documentation.

What I'm trying to do is basically replicate the proxy settings from a desktop machine to a server machine. I have Ubuntu 10.04 Desktop running fine on a corporate network using the Automatic Proxy Configuration option and supplying the appropriate URL that I pulled for a corporate issued windows machine. I would like to do this on Ubuntu server 10.04 as well.

What I've got so far is coping out the proxy information from the .pac file and setting the http proxy value directly but I want to follow the URL so that the system follows any changes that come down the road. how to integrate a .pac (Proxy auto-config) url into ubuntu server?

Fedora Servers :: Config For Routing New To FC10?

Feb 4, 2009

So my server running FC4 died last night and I decided to go ahead with the long-awaited upgrade to FC10 while I was rebuilding my server. I use my server for a number of things including, but not limited to: router, firewall, web server, mail server... I have a typical configuration process that I have followed since before fedora, and it has worked well for me up through FC4, but my usual config process doesn't work on FC10.

First of all, I don't want SELinux running, I didn't see an option to not install it during the FC10 setup, so how to I properly disable or uninstall it afterwards? Second, I was unable to even configure the server to route traffic from my internal network to the web, here's the process I usually go through for this:


I don't have a static IP from my ISP, so I'm not quite sure how to add the default route. I think I need to do something like "route add default gw xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx eth1" where eth1 is my external NIC, correct?

What else do I need to do to route traffic? I noticed that I wasn't even able to ping my server from the internal network even though they are on the same subnet, my server's internal NIC has an address of and my computer on the network has an address of If I can get this going to I have internet access again at the very least, I can move forward with the web server, email, etc.

Fedora Servers :: Config - Can't Seem To Get Samba Working

Mar 8, 2009

I've read through these pages [URL] but can't seem to get Samba server working. I am using Gnome and I go to System - Administration - Services

In there I can see smb and nmb. Both are enabled, but both have a status of unknown. I can't seem to start or stop either of them. I can just enable or disable them. I've tried using the gui, as well as command line.

I'd really like to get this going as I'd like to copy files from my XP Pro box to my Linux box (F9). I have WinSCP, but am having permission issues and I can only copy to a folder on my desktop on the Linux box (I'd like to get this fixed too, but that's a different thread at a later time)

Ubuntu Servers :: Squid Proxy Very Slow For Web In Default Config?

Jan 10, 2010

I just set up squid for the first time. I have zero experience with proxy servers. I used this guide:[URL](I also looked at a few other guides such as this one:ttp://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=320733. However, I wanted to most barebones config to start with and the link I used was the simplest.)So now that I have it set up, I'm testing it with FoxyProxy. It is not working well. I went to speedtest.net. The download and ping tests were just as fast as without the proxy, but the upload test fails completely.Furthermore, many web pages load very slowly or not at all. So performance is very mixed, but mostly poor.

Ubuntu Servers :: Using Basic Iptables Config - But ALL Traffic DROPS

#eth0 - connected to Internet
#eth1 - connected to LAN
# - workstation1
#set default policies
iptables -P INPUT DROP


iptables -A FORWARD -i eth1 -o eth0 -p tcp --dport 80 -s -j ACCEPT. The reason I'm doing this is, I just want to open necessary ports in the server and restrict LAN usage.
