Debian 7.7 (Wheezy) Fluxbox 1.3.2-4 KeePass2 2.28 mono 2.10.8.1-8 xdotool 2.20110530.1 gnupg2 2.0.19-2+deb7u2 In my experience, KeePass2 version 2.28 is the first to auto-type into a terminal or non-gui program on Debian. I can auto-type into ssh or pinentry-curses from KeePass 2.28. Auto-type fails to work with pinentry-gtk-2 when I test it. I don't ...

This command worked in the end, executed on my beaglebone as root: pkill -USR1 -n -x dd I could run the command over and over again and it would indeed update (slow transfer).

OMG, I just now realize that this may be because of the environment: Vagrant. So, I remove my custom supervisor conf file which is calling a program in vagrant mounted filesystem. reboot and boom! it works! and the Vagrant solution is config.vm.provision "shell", inline: "service supervisor restart", run: "always"

This is an alternative method to the accepted answer but thought I'd share it here anyways. this blog post describes the method, titled: The following signatures couldn’t be verified.

No, is not. There two places where you can add repositories. The /etc/apt/sources.list and any file ending in .list in the /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ directory (if you add an entry in the apt.conf file you can add more, but the ones before are the default). So, just check the files in the directory and remove the one you don't need. On the other hand, ...

I'm using Debian 7 testing, and for me it worked doing this: Installing the dependencies as said by Dennis: $ sudo apt-get build-dep python-imaging Making a symbolic link as suggested by mrudult: $ sudo ln -s -T /usr/include/freetype2/ /usr/include/freetype Install Pillow as usual: $ pip install Pillow

I think you can do this: Package: yourpackage Pin: version 7.* Pin-Priority: 999 This would allow upgrades to yourpackage to versions matching 7.*

try sestatus if permissive or active, you sould have file on it (on /selinux dir). if disabled diectory shouldn't be there. disabling is done bu editing /etc/selinux/config setting SELINUX=disabled and reboot.

Don't do this, the directory is owned by libselinux1 and some packages depend on it. You should not remove files or directories provided by the package manager. Proven on my Debian system (7.6) To find out, which package owns a path on your system, use $ dpkg -S /selinux/ libselinux1:amd64: /selinux $ sudo apt-get remove libselinux1 ..... The following ...

In your /etc/exports you need to replace the 192.168.1.* with 192.168.1.0/24, you can only use wildcards in hostnames. You also need to create the mountpoints on the client system, you only show the current mountpoint /mnt/green; /mnt/nuci5 and /mnt/nuci5-extra must also exist. Maybe they do, but you filtered those out in that case. Beyond that it should ...

The date is unknown because that's not how debian operates. The release happens when it is deemed ready. The "best guess" based on extrapolation of history is "end of next year" (but don't quote me on that). It is difficult to make a prediction based on the current state of important bugs (release critical, base system, standard/task packages), because by ...

I do not know Kali, so my answer is for vanilla Debian systems. I hope it is more or less the same for you. In order to install packages from foreign architectures, you have to enable the new architecture with the command dpkg --add-architecture i386 Then you update the lists of packages: apt-get update And then you should be able to install multiarch ...

You can setup NAT for your VM manually for example like this: Create another bridge: brctl addbr xenbr1 Add it to your VM: bridge=xenbr1 Bring the bridge UP with some network, for example ifconfig xenbr1 192.168.0.1/24 up Setup a DHCP server and configuration for your network subnet 192.168.0.0 netmask 255.255.255.0 { range 192.168.0.10 192.168.0.50; ...

If you really use the <Directory /> directive as written there, you aren't changing anything for that virtual host, but instead you're declaring the same overrides over and over again for the directory /.

Each package that compiles with the Debian policy contains a changelog file in /usr/share/doc/PACKAGE-NAME/changelog.Debian.

linux-image-amd64 is a generic metapackage, which depends on the specific default kernel package. In your particular case, linux-image-amd64 probably depends on linux-image-3.16-2-amd64.

First, the "insserv: warning" ... is just that, warnings. The command has still succeeded and would have disabled kdm from starting automatically.

Check build date of installed software, eg aptitude. This won't work if the software had a security upgrade, but otherwise the earlist compilation time from of a bunch of packages that do report their compile times would give you some idea.

Software Center like, as GUI package manager, you can use packagekit or synaptic. They don't use many graphics effects, as USC does, but it should be a GUI equivalent of the package manager.

$ cat /etc/hosts 127.0.0.1 localhost 127.0.1.1 JAZZ In this example, the machine has 2 names: "localhost" and "JAZZ". Not every machine has a hostname: android@user$cat /etc/hosts 127.0.0.1 localhost This is perfectly OK.

What is the output of the following? glxinfo | grep "direct rendering" You need the mesa-utils package installed to get glxinfo.

Could it be that your no-ip client isn't running? The installation instructions says "Read the README file in the no-ip-2.1.9 folder for instructions on how to make the client run at startup."

There are two settings that limit the number of open files: a per-process limit, and a system-wide limit. The system-wide limit is set by the fs.file-max sysctl, which can be configured in /etc/sysctl.conf (read at boot time) or set on the fly with the sysctl command or by writing to /proc/sys/fs/file-max. The per-process limit is set by ulimit -n. The ...

The filesystem mounted on /mnt has open file descriptors from running processes. You normally could try an umount with the force option, but looking up those processes with "lsof /mnt" and end them is safer.

I ran into the same issue but read on a crunchbang forum thread to try formatting usb to fat16. I did that in gparted and then used unetbootin to write the Jessie Beta 2 amd64 iso to disk. The installer then recognized it as cdrom. Relevant forum thread

It's partly just due to historical differences, but partly because different distributions are geared toward different kinds of users. Red Hat and Debian are aimed mainly at business environments that need tried-and-true, stable software; Ubuntu is aimed at people who want the latest-and-greatest versions of everything with a minimum of fuss; Arch and ...

In your specific case is because schroot overrides several files, including the /etc/passwd one, which dpkg queries to compare with the statoverride file, it checks that all entries of the statoverride file are in the passwd, and if they are not, issue a warning, which is what is happening. Essentially, it happens whenever you remove a user that a package ...

The only reason I know of is if you don't have a 64-bit CPU. The host OS doesn't matter, and if hardware virtualisation is not enabled (vtx in BIOS settings) you can still create the VM but it will tell you what's wrong when you try to start it.

You're missing the main Debian repositories, your sources only point to the security repo. Uncomment the last lines in /etc/apt/sources/list.

You need to create a 64bit virtual machine. The bitness of the host OS is irrelevant, it's the VM that needs to be 64bit. From the VBox website (emphasis mine): 64-bit guests VirtualBox supports 64-bit guest operating systems, even on 32-bit host operating systems, provided that the following conditions are met: You need a 64-bit processor ...

Just a thought. There might be hidden files on the rootfs partition.

Apparently it's a bug with the installer that happens if you choose the italian language, and it doesn't create the directory /target/proc. Pretty strange, but anyway, I fixed it by changing language in the installation.
