As the output says, you have a problem with maindeb: deb-src http://ftp2.de.debian.org/debian/ stable-updates maindeb Remove deb leaving only main and try again.

Have a look at the Filesystem Hierachy Standard which is also the base for Debian's file system layout. .csv and shell scripts likely go into /usr/share/<yourprogramname> if they come out of the package or /var/lib/<yourprogramname> if they're data which changes over time. Python files are a rather special case, see Debian's Python Policy for ...

You're looking for headless with X. It's little bit described on ArchWiki, there's shown a way how to do this. There's another alternative to run headless X11 compatible server: Xvfb(X virtual framebuffer). It's a display server that performs all graphical operations in memory without showing any screen output. startx is just front-end for xinit which ...

lxc-snapshot is listed in the version of lxc in testing/unstable, which at this time of writing are both the same, namely 1:1.0.6-6. You can see the list of packages at File list of package lxc/jessie/amd64. Backporting lxc should not be a problem. It does not have much by way of dependencies. Comment if you need more details about this. Generic ...

You are downloading a script using wget and running it by piping the result to bash: the script is telling you to add -r to the invocation of the script, not to wget. Probably the easiest solution is to take the script's advice, i.e. run it as a normal user; either by opening a new PuTTY session as a regular user, or using su su - someuser wget -q -O - ...

I think you might need to put this in your /etc/apt/sources.list file: deb http://http.debian.net/debian/ squeeze main contrib non-free deb-src http://http.debian.net/debian/ squeeze main contrib non-free deb http://http.debian.net/debian squeeze-lts main contrib non-free deb-src http://http.debian.net/debian squeeze-lts main contrib non-free Source: ...

In Debian, amd64 is x86_64 so Squeeze LTS is a viable option for you. See my answer to your question on SO for details.

You refer to a hostname variable. The construct you're using, ThisHost=$(hostname), is calling the hostname command. Since the value is empty, it then becomes a question of why your system doesn't know its name. (You can confirm this by typing hostname by itself and seeing that your system has no name.) According to a RPi forum posting The hostname should ...

try apt-get update.

I ran into the exact same problem trying to setup seafile with HTTPS on my new Cubietruck (Cubieboard 3). The problem is that there's no pre-compiled binary for arch 'armhf' in the repos. So it must be compiled. And I solved it like this: apt-get install apache2-threaded-dev cdbs debhelper dpatch libapr1-dev libtool pkg-config apt-get -b source ...

Chromium is only available on amd64 and i386 in Debian, so it can’t be installed on your mini210s. It used to be available on armel in Debian Squeeze, and for a while on armhf, but it was removed for Wheezy in March 2013, probably because it was too difficult to provide adequate security support on ARM platforms... See the commit log for the exact removal ...

If you block ALL outgoing ARP requests, you won't be able to establish any network connections besides perhaps broadcast stuff. The problem is perhaps that you're sending unnecessary ARP requests. I have seen this when the default route is simply declared to be the outgoing network interface and not a gateway. This means that the system has to do an ARP for ...

There is a " missing at the end of line 5.

You can do this by listing both sets of packages and determining the difference between the two results: grep -Fxv -f <(apt list | grep unstable | cut -d/ -f1) <(apt list | grep experimental | cut -d/ -f1) This produces “experimental minus unstable”, and can be adapted to calculate any difference by changing unstable and/or experimental. Strictly ...

You're missing several things in /dev. You were initially missing /dev/tty, which the kernel internally reroutes to the calling process's own terminal. The getty and login programs talk to a specific terminal (here /dev/ttySAC0), but after that other programs just want to communicate via whichever terminal they're running on, and they use /dev/tty for that. ...

I suspect the underlying issue is nothing to do with your tty, but rather that is a consequence of the far more important error message further down, PAM Failure, aborting: Critical error - immediate abort. This article from the Debian Help site may help. (TL;DR? CR/LF on the end of lines in PAM configuration files is bad.) But without knowing what you've ...

The keyring is stored in the debian-keyring package, so to install the Jessie keyring you can do wget http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/pool/main/d/debian-keyring/debian-keyring_2014.12.10_all.deb sudo dpkg -i debian-keyring_2014.12.10_all.deb Alternatively, to continue your backport without upgrading your keyring, you can simply extract the files dget ...

Squeeze doesn't know (much) about multiarch, but the source package you're building uses multiarch paths (usr/lib/*/lib*.a, where the first * ends up being replaced by the multiarch triplet for the architecture you're building on). To fix the dh_install step you need to edit the appropriate <package>.install file in debian and change the paths to ...

Version 1.11.7-2 from testing works for me in a production environment. You don't need to upgrade your entire system from stable, just add a testing repository: deb http://ftp.uk.debian.org/debian/ testing main contrib non-free deb http://ftp.uk.debian.org/debian/ testing-updates main contrib non-free You may need to tell apt that you prefer the Stable ...

Thanks for your help but I was creating the issue myself. Although it's a stupid thing, I want to share it: I have an ownCloud installation which is installed on the SD card as well. It is necessary to run a cronjob which is writing a lock file to the disk every 15 minutes which was waking my disk up.

dpkg --print-architecture will output the primary architecture of the machine it's run on. This will be armhf on a machine running 32-bit ARM Debian or Ubuntu (or a derivative), arm64 on a machine running 64-bit ARM. Note that the running architecture may be different from the hardware architecture or even the kernel architecture. It's possible to run ...

Create a file, let's call it /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/01stable, with the following content: APT::Default-Release "stable"; Now create a file called /etc/apt/preferences with the following content: Package: firefox* Pin: release n=stable Pin-Priority: -10 Package: firefox* Pin: release n=debian Pin-Priority: 900

I was looking at the directory http://cdimage.debian.org/debian-cd/current-live/amd64/iso-hybrid/ There you can find the following files for Gnome version - debian-live-7.8.0-amd64-gnome-desktop.iso - debian-live-7.8.0-amd64-gnome-desktop.iso.contents - debian-live-7.8.0-amd64-gnome-desktop.iso.packages as well as the equivalent ones for standard version ...
