Your kernel pre-dates the release of Cedarview processors, so it's not surprising that you're having problems. Patching the kernel is likely to be rather complex though, given that you're new at it; you'd probably also need to patch X.org and/or MESA to get things working properly. Since you plan to upgrade at some point, I'd suggest doing that first: it ...

Select manual partitioning and create two new partitions in the free space: A small one (about 500 MB), which you format with a Linux file system (e.g. ext4). Select /boot as mount point for it. For the remaining space, choose "Use as: physical volume for encryption". Afterwards, go through the process of configuring encrypted volumes (in the top of the ...

Install the ecryptfs package. Run the command ecryptfs-mount-private. It will prompt you for a password, enter the password for your account on Mint. Installing the package also adds pam_ecryptfs to the PAM configuration, so from now on, if you use the same password for your account and for your ecryptfs passphrase, your encrypted home directory will be ...

I have no experience with Plymouth on Debian, but I had a similar issue getting the boot splash to change on CentOS 6. 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 ...

I've found backups so it is fast after the first back. Incremental backup and full backups can be retained on different schedules. Only one copy of each file version is kept so it is quite space efficient. Restoration are done from a web page where you can browse and download individual files or create restoration archives. I've disable write access, so ...

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. Some advanced filesystems such as ZFS and Btrfs have them as a built-in feature, as do some disk layers such as LVM. On a generic filesystem, a basic technique is to reproduce the directory tree that you ...

I thought I would add a better answer for anyone else observing this thread. 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 ...

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 ...

Maybe you are missing the vlan package, that have the binaries required to configure the interfaces. To solve this: apt-get install vlan. Installing the bridge-utils package is also needed.

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 ...

For some odd reason /usr/bin/java was no longer pointing to the java installation. No idea how this happened.

Adding the Kali repositories would indeed change the /etc/os-release file. The version in Kali's repos is probably newer than the one in Debian's so apt downloaded it and replaced the one on your system. If you're very, very lucky, that's all that broke. Do not, I repeat not, ever mix repositories from different Linux distributions.

I'm guessing, that phpmyadmin can't connect to the database. This might be the case because the mysql root account is only allowed to access from localhost, i.e 192.168.0.80. This might answere your question.

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... Download wkhtmltopdf from source and compile it (see the instructions in the INSTALL.md file ; you ...

Are you using an abstraction layer such as libvirt? If so then simply add a disk image file as a USB Disk.

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 ...

gmail will let you use their SMTP server to send emails using another email address. You'd have to configure your devices to log in to Google's server using gmail credentials, but after that, can send from other accounts. You could configure your own server using postfix or similar on the RPi, but then you're faced with having to send and receive SMTP, and ...

A number of ways to do it. Probably a dispatch script under the NetworkManager is more or less as good as any other. Just check if eth0 is up or down and then disable or enable the wifi accordingly using nmcli (the command line interface to the network manager). If you do a search you'll find the following script floating around (See for example: ...

You state that you have only 2 physical serial port which you detect to ttyS1 and ttyS2. ttyS3 and ttyS4 don't exist; they are exposed, but you have to ignore them. This is simply the way the driver works; it probes what may be a serial port and expose it to you, but you have to verify it is a real serial port because the driver can't be 100% sure. This ...

In my particular case, the application which I was running was begun with sudo. I believed that the limits would therefore be applied from the root user's account. I was wrong. Instead, I found that, although the application was running as root, the limits applied to it were the limits belonging to the user which launched the application.

apt-file search all repos listed in /etc/apt/sources.list and related databases, as long as repo serve a contents-%architecture%.gz. if believe the file of interest is an executable name "top", use this regex.

Google Chrome and Chrome Remote Desktop are excellent userland options, as @jcbermu has already suggested.

You can search for things with apt-cache search ..., although it is just a match on package names and descriptions, which sometimes is not enough. In that case using, e.g., apt-file search top might work -- it finds all packages that have a file with top in their name, but for this that is a bit zany (it includes setopt, .desktop, etc). To refine this ...

The first one is EINVAL (a standard POSIX C error) inverted.
