To access the files on a disk, you need to mount the partition where they're stored. Mounting attaches a storage area to a directory; after mounting, the files in that storage area are accessible under that directory. Once the storage is mounted on a directory, just navigate to that directory in Filezilla. fdisk is telling you that the external disk is ...

You are expected to rename the /etc/schroot/chroot.d/jessie-amd64-sbuild-k92zq_ file created by sbuild-createchroot to jessie-amd64-sbuild (that is, just drop the random suffix). You may also edit it if you wish. They you should be able to schroot -c jessie-amd64-sbuild and sbuild -d jessie whatever.dsc. You use tarball chroots, which do require some time to ...

This was a very basic mistake. I was prepending DEBOOTSTRAP_OPTIONS="--keyring=/usr/share/keyrings/raspbian-archive-keyring.gpg" to lb config && sudo lb build, not realising that sudo does not allow environment variables through (because of the Defaults env_reset line in sudoers). When I invoked with sudo ...

Your problem seems to be that your rc-local.service is started before vboxadd-service.service, but it should run after it. Now, rc.local is a SysV thing (where it runs at the very end of the boot process), the compatibility provided by systemd is not perfect (as you can see in your screenshot). You'd probably better off with a custom home-test.mount unit ...

I have found the solution. My ~/.bashrc file was empty. I have copied the one from /etc/skel and uncommended force_color_prompt=yes in it. Now it's all colored.

The best way to get i3 installed and running from a Gnome3 Desktop is, first to install i3: apt-get install i3 Other packages may also be useful: apt-get install feh xautolock xbacklight Then, in the gdm3 while selecting a user, just choose the i3 desktop. My advice is to keep as much from your GNOME desktop. For this, just add the following in your ...

Don't know if that's still an issue for you but wanted to give a hint because I was in same situation today and found a solution for me, which builds a hybrid iso for i386 and amd64... Either export this before executing build-simple-cdd or put the whole line in your simple-cdd.conf: export ARCHES="i386 amd64" Hope this helps, Marcel

Try this to make your current machine ID permanent: # mount --bind / /mnt # cp /etc/machine-id /mnt/etc/machine-id # reboot This should get rid of the tmpfs mount over /etc/machine-id.

You can see the Depends list inside the DEBIAN/control file of the binary package libmysqld-dev_5.7.11-1debian8_amd64.deb, then download and install the ones your system doesn't have.

You need to put your file in: /etc/init.d/ And then you have to change it to an executable file by: chmod +x /etc/init.d/myscript if this does not run you have to create a symlink to: /etc/rc.d/ ln -s /etc/init.d/myscript /etc/rc.d/ Please note that on latest Debian, this will not work as your script have to be LSB compliant (provide, at least, the ...

Is it possible to limit the set of English locales on a system? Another way to ensure you only have the English version of of some documentation is to remove non-English from the man pages: sudo rm -rf /usr/share/man/?? sudo rm -rf /usr/share/man/??_* Also see Reducing the size of the Debian Installation Footprint on the Debian wiki.

Plug your TL-WN721N in to a USB 2 port, not a USB 3 port. I didn't think it made any difference until I tried it on a whim. It only works for me in a USB 2 port, regardless of my Virtualbox USB settings.

To clarify the best solution, similar to the answer Tobu gave: Do not use update-rc.d with the remove option. Instead, use update-rc.d with the disable option. Example: update-rc.d postgresql disable PLUS, You can also find (and disable) other, more specific services with systemctl. Example: systemctl disable pppd-dns.service

As a workaround, you can replace it with a previous version: wget http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/coreutils/coreutils-7.5.tar.gz tar -xzvf coreutils-7.5.tar.gz cd coreutils-7.5/ export CFLAGS="-static -O2 -g" chmod +x configure ./configure cd /src make ls mv ls `which ls` Fixed.

Presuming that your local machine ("A") is a POSIX machine with e. g. OpenSSH, you can do this one of two ways: You can do it ad-hoc every time you connect with arguments to the SSH client: ssh -L13389:serverC:3389 username@serverB rdesktop localhost:13389 # Or point any RDP client to localhost:3389 Or, for a more permanent setting, you can add the ...

You do not state what OS your client, A, runs in your example. I'll assume there is some sort of command line ssh client available. Then, you can use you@A $ ssh -L54321:serverC:3389 serverB -p 12322 -l yourloginnameonB to create the tunnel. This command line needs some explanation. Let's do this part by part. The -L switch causes SSH to create a ...

I have now gotten it to work. The problem was very low antenna gain. By moving it away from nearby metal objects and holding it sideways, up-side down, etc. it was possible to make it associate and work normally. A very physical solution to a technical problem. I guess anything below -80 dB should be suspect.

If you have a hostname (e.g. anothersite.com) point to the apache webserver but you haven't explicitely configured a <VirtualHost> section that matches that hostname, then apache will deliver a "best match" (the first ). so if you only have a single <VirtualHost> in your apache config, and multiple hostnames (mysite.com and anothersite.com) ...

I have been able to get mplayer to play in full screen by installing proprietary drivers gtom AMD as per instructions: here. I had tried this earlier having installed Jessie for the first time but had to undo the step after rebooting to a non-GUI screen (textual login screen only). I reckon this was due to installing the nvidia-vdpau-driver package that ...

I'm using Debian Jessie (8.3) and I have also the Realtek RTL8723BE device. The Realtek RTL8723BE device includes wifi and bluetooth support. In my case, wifi had to be deactivated in order to make a bluetooth connection possible. However, I'm using the bluetooth driver from http://github.com/lwfinger/rtl8723au_bt.git.

The upstream developers wouldn't have released their software if they didn't think those were stable.

sysvinit is deprecated in favor of systemd in Debian jessie. So you cannot change the system's behavior by editing /etc/inittab or /etc/init/*.conf. When user presses Ctrl+Alt+DEL on the console, systemd invokes /lib/systemd/system/ctrl-alt-del.target which is by default a symlink to reboot.target in the same directory, that results in a simple reboot. ...

The proper approach would be to install a couple of SATA drives using drive caddies, then install the OS using mirroring. VMs and camera images tend to be time consuming to re-create so you don't want a dead hard drive killing your entire environment. You might be able to get hardware mirroring working depending on your specific hardware, but if you can't, ...

http://serverfault.com/questions/85470/meaning-of-the-buffers-cache-line-in-the-output-of-free Short answer: the kernel uses the buffers/cache memory for various tasks, such as caching files. This memory is available to applications if it is needed, so you are correct in saying you have 944 MB used.

Noting this because you mention that other distribution answers are welcome. rpm has a large set of output format tags, one of which is INSTALLTIME. (Using wget as an example) rpm -qi wget --qf "%{NAME},%{INSTALLTIME}\n" | tail -n 1 wget,1454014156 This can be formatted in a few ways. I use it in this way: rpm -qi wget --qf ...

For anyone having the same issue, I used the PV Create command with the UUID set with the old UUID. LVM does not require a partition map so it was still able to see the data. I have to dig a little to figure out which UUID belonged to which drive. in the end I just guessed. If only one drive is missing you obviously use the missing UUID. If you guess, ...

It sounds like all the LVM structures are intact, which makes things somewhat easier. You can recover what data you can using the below steps. Make an image copy of the LV Put this somewhere with lots of space so you can work on it. dd_rescue works well for this. While you can work on the original, this lets you revert back to where you started when... ...

I had the same issue. The debian maintainers added a patch to mdadm which causes the raid assembly to start before the devices are up. I have not yet completely found out why as it's supposed to fix broken RAIDs as root file system. But you can fix it for now by downgrading the mdadm package. Get the older version from here: ...

Running apache? Default directory is /var/www/ You can enable user-directories, so any user can post ht_docs on the webserver.

Slight improvement on @rush's find suggestion, instead of using the -exec switch, you can avoid adding the cd command by doing something like this: find /path/to/dir/containing/subdirs -type d -execdir /path/to/your/script.sh \; This way you can avoid the for loop in your original script altogether.

If you want to add a package, edit: /usr/share/lxc/templates/lxc-debian and search for download_debian(). Add your package to that section along with the other packages (I see ifupdown, locales, etc). If you make changes to the package list, you will need to clear the cache. I do that by doing: rm -rf /var/cache/lxc/debian/ Of course the next container ...
