Duplicity creates snapshots, but in the form of compressed archives, not in a form that can be read directly. There are several ways to create snapshots.

First, run apt-get -f install to make APT happy about the current state of the system. Having half-installed or half-removed packages or broken dependencies tends to put APT in a state where it won't do what you tell it to do, even if that would theoretically be possible because it wouldn't affect the broken packages. dpkg is a low-level tool that does only ...

allow-hotplug <interface>, is used the same way auto is by most people. However, the hotplug event is something that involves kernel/udev detection against the hardware, that could be a cable being connected to the port, or a USB-to-Ethernet dongle that will be up and running whenever you plug on USB, or either a PCMCIA wireless card being connected to ...

This is a bug, and the fix hasn't been brought to the Debian repositories. Quoting ashkulz (who closed the bug report) : You're using the version of wkhtmltopdf in the debian repositories, which does not support running headless. So you can either...

After creating a custom theme and initiating the initramfs rebuild, upon reboot the theme had not changed. This was fixed by specifying the VGA mode in the grub configuration file by adding vga=<code> to the boot line, where (in my ...

Please do not use symbolic links to /dev/null. Edit the main apt config file (/etc/apt/apt.conf) as explained by Gilles if you really do not wish to have any package history. Note that /etc/apt/apt.conf may not yet exist on your system. In this case, the apt package executables use built-in defaults. So, you would have to create the file from scratch as ...

So, if you've already gone through the trouble of building opencv on the device, you've probably followed the instructions here: http://docs.opencv.org/doc/tutorials/introduction/linux_install/linux_install.html In which case, if you don't add the -D args to dynamically override ...
