apt-get dist-upgrade does nothing because your system is already up-to-dateā€¦ for wheezy. You've instructed your system to follow wheezy, and that's what it does. To upgrade to another release, you need to change your package sources to point to that other release. Package sources are declared in the file /etc/apt/sources.list. Edit this file and change all ...

Open the terminal and type the following command: sed -i 's/wheezy/jessie/g' /etc/apt/sources.list apt-get update apt-get upgrade apt-get dist-upgrade apt-get autoremove apt-get clean apt-get dist-upgrade -f reboot

It's a little unclear what you want, but here goes: ping usually shows what ip it's using. That might be the address on your LAN side of the router, but that is most likely what you need. If you're looking for the address on the WAN side, you can try visiting sites like http://whatismyip.com, but if your ISP uses CGN (Carrier Grade NAT) the reported IP ...

You only have the updates listed. The base repo you're missing is at deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ jessie main contrib deb-src http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ jessie main contrib

Different releases of Debian have different versions of tmux. Take a look at the package page for tmux. It seems that apt-get is looking at wheezy (a little old). The Debian releases-page shows how old: 2013 (and still being updated). By the way, you could be running Ubuntu or some other downstream distribution rather than Debian, but it's likely there ...

Try Section 4.5 of the Debian Kernel Handbook: "Building a custom kernel from Debian kernel source". To quote from that section The easiest way to build a custom kernel (the kernel with the configuration different from the one used in the official packages) from the Debian kernel source is to use the linux-source package and the make deb-pkg target. ...

I have solved it, it was not straight forward but after a analyzing the script that runs that service of pure-ftpd, i figure that the script /etc/init.d/pure-ftpd starts another script called pure-ftpd-wrapper Looking at this script it apprears to read some configuration values from disk, then searching for manpage of pure-ftpd-wrapper took me to ...

If using Debian stable, and you have a package you want updated, you can use backports, as seen in https://backports.debian.org/Instructions/ in short: add "deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian jessie-backports main" (after main, can also add contrib and non-free, if using them.) to your sources.list, which by default is /etc/apt/sources.list (as root, or ...

I have had this problem so many times I 'wrote it down' # tested works # jessie updates deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ jessie main contrib non-free deb http://mirror.cogentco.com/debian/ jessie main contrib non-free deb http://security.debian.org/ jessie/updates main contrib non-free # source list deb-src http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian jessie main ...

Yes, you can use all of them. Even some that are not even there! You will have to install the ones you haven't included when installing Debian. A simple $ apt-get install desktop-of-choice will do the trick. You can also use the program "synaptic" if you want a graphical interface for installing new software. In order to change between desktop ...

I'm not a Rasbian user, but I'm assuming that you've just installed the JSON GLib libraries. You also need the header files. These are available in the json-glib-dev package. As a general piece of advice: If you find yourself moving things (libraries, binaries) around as root, or creating symlinks here and there, then it is highly likely that you're ...

Gnome's GDM (Gnome Display Manager) manages graphical display servers and handles graphical user logins. See this page on the ArchWiki for more information. (from the above link): To autorun programs: Ensure your ~/.xinitrc or /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc files source ~/.xprofile: #!/bin/sh # Make sure this is before the 'exec' command or it won't be sourced. [ -...

As @Gilles suggested, it's more suitable to run on demand, especially when you're using it for Selenium testing. Here is example shell commands: export DISPLAY=:99 xdpyinfo -display $DISPLAY > /dev/null || Xvfb $DISPLAY -screen 0 1024x768x16 & Checking display using xdpyinfo before will make sure you won't run virtual framebuffer twice. If you ...
