A lot of package include this in their control information in the Vcs-* fields. You can see it easily (and without downloading the source package) using apt-cache showsrc. $ apt-cache showsrc gnome-disk-utility ⋮ Vcs-Browser: https://anonscm.debian.org/cgit/pkg-utopia/gnome-disk-utility.git Vcs-Git: ...

As indicated by derobert, Debian packages which are maintained in a VCS are supposed to indicate this in a pair of Vcs-... fields in their source package. The best tool to use this information is debcheckout in the devscripts package. debcheckout -d gnome-disk-utility will show you gnome-disk-utility's repository information, and if you then want to ...

I could reproduce the phenomenon on Ubuntu 15.04 with the following crontab: * * * * * { echo job 0; } & sleep 5 * * * * * { echo job 1; } & * * * * * { sleep 5; echo job 2; } & I got mails from cron with job 0 every minute, mails with job 1 occasionally (5-6 times in last 10 minutes), no mails with job 2. So it seems cron waits for the child ...

Upon further testing, I suspect the & is messing with your results. As you point out, &>/dev/null is bash syntax, not sh syntax. As a result, sh is creating a subshell and backgrounding it. Sure, the subshell's echo creates stderr, but my theory is that: cron is not catching the subshell's stderr, and the backgrounding of the subshell always ...

Remember how I said: The system uses lxc containers for compartmentalisation, but that shouldn't matter here. Well, turns out it did matter. Or rather, the cgroups at the heart of lxc matter. The host machine only sees reboots for kernel upgrades. So, what were the last kernels used? 3.19, replaced by 4.0.5 2 months ago and yesterday with 4.1.3. And ...

su and sudo are the two most common ways to run a program (possibly a shell) as another user (possibly root). They have the same effect, but they work very differently in terms of how they determine whether to allow the action: su requires that either the source user is root, or the user demonstrate that they have access to the target account (typically by ...

The best way to keep track of such unwanted behavior is to collect logs of your machine activity from time to time. Running a script every 15 minutes with cron that will look at open network connexions might be the best way to go. I would advise you to use the lsof command and collect information about the network connexion made by your machine. Something ...

If you have configured server and created user accounts on debian. Then to migrate mails, you can use imapsync utility. This utility just synchronizes mails between two servers. You don't need to worry about mail directory path/structure on both servers. But you should know password for user account to transfer mails. Check imapsync use link for more ...

DISCLAIMER: I don't know how dependent this answer is on specific hardware. airmon-ng will enable a monitor interface without disrupting your wifi connection. Install aircrack-ng then run something like (I'm assuming wlan0 here): sudo airmon-ng start wlan0 Which will typically create a mon0 interface to the same physical card. You can also try to do it ...

If you remove the swap partitions the system will fail to find them when it next boots. This is a non-fatal error, but you would be better also commenting out (or removing) the corresponding swap lines in /etc/fstab.

To solve the issue, install the python-dev package which include the Python.h header file needed for compilation of pycrypto.: apt-get install python-dev But, you can also easily install the python-crypto package directly: apt-get install python-crypto

After a discussion with Jeff Schaller, I just added a simple init.d script called set-gateway-as-ntp which runs before ntp and adds the gateway address to /etc/ntp.conf: #! /bin/sh ### BEGIN INIT INFO # Provides: setgatewayasntp # Required-Start: $network # Required-Stop: # Default-Start: 2 3 4 5 # Default-Stop: 0 1 6 # X-Start-Before: ...

There is probably a line in /etc/apt/sources.list (or in one of the files in /etc/apt/sources.lists.d/ starting with deb cdrom ... Comment this line out and Debian wont try to install packages from this disc.

You could use i386 (because your processor supports the IA-32 instructions) or amd64 (because of the x86-64 instruction set). If you want 64bit, you should use amd64. There is a description of the different port on https://www.debian.org/ports/index.en.html: amd64 - 64-bit PC (amd64) First officially released with Debian 4.0. Port to the 64-bit AMD64 ...

Since /etc/rc.local is executed at the end of each multiuser runlevel, it's not the correct place to add start scripts. I recommend to not use /etc/rc.local in any way. It's a reclit for early *nix times. Instead of that, create a startup script in /etc/init.d/name which accepts start and stop arguments to start or stop the deamon, process or the job: #! ...

The CUPS package only recommends the Avahi daemon, so you don't have to install (and run) it, even though it's selected for installation by default, just like strict dependencies. You can simply deselect it. The client libraries will still get installed (being strict dependencies), but those should have no effect on your system.

/usr/include/jack/jack.h is provided by libjack-dev (jackd1) or libjack-jackd2-dev (jackd2) package. You need to install either of them. Debian has the service where you can search for packages which contain specific files. Here's the result for jack/jack.h.

I have solved the issue. I have been meaning to do this move for a few months. in that time I have been rsyncing all users folders to the new server. I forgot to add the --delete command to the rsync command thus old email messages were accumulating on the destination (new) server even after the user had deleted them from the old server. Therefore when I ...

Can you specify the rsync command that you used as if I'm not mistaken you need to make sure the modification timestamps are preserved when doing the rsync. A quick look at man rsync tells me that rsync should have the options like -tPrlHpogEAXz when you run it.

Sudo is an additional program which may or may not be installed on a system. It's available as package sudo on Debian. Without more information on the specific situation/code you are referring to, the most likely answer is that sudo cannot be assumed to be installed, why su is required to be present as by the POSIX standard installed as part of Debians base ...

Mark's comment above is correct: Your CFLAGS addition should use -I, not -L. The -L flag to the compiler tells it where to find libraries, but you're failing to find a header file instead. (Yes, the header file is called libiberty.h, but that doesn't make it a library.) Generally you use -L flags in makefiles in LDFLAGS and related variables. (I've ...

You're just fetching data from Debian's database, which might be out of date or incorrect. With that caveat: You can pass the no-act flag, -s, to apt-get when fetching source like you're doing now to get the same data: $ apt-get -s source konsole Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done NOTICE: ...

You cannot create span for Wildcard TDM410P. Only one thing you should do is to configure channels the right way. Here is your minimal /etc/dahdi/system.conf for using this card: loadzone=us defaultzone=us fxsks=1 Maybe it is too late to answer this question, but here I am.

In Keepass2, "Add Entry," and set "Title" to "GPG." Move from "Entry" tab to "Auto-Type" tab. Select "Override default sequence" and set to "{PASSWORD}". Before you send email, open Keepass2 with Keepass2 password. Ask IceDove with Enigmail to "Send" and pinentry should appear (locking keyboard, preventing "Ctrl+V" (or any other keyboard shortcut you ...
