You don't need a VLAN package on Debian unless you are configuring the Debian box as a VLAN switch. As long as the Debian machine has a NIC in that VLAN that is routed to the Internet. If machines are connected and during installation you configure the IP address and DNS server, are you able to scan the mirror during installation?

To remove a repository, you have to do 2 things: Remove it from sources.list. If it was added by add-apt-repository then you will find it in its own file in /etc/apt/sources.list.d, not in the main sources.list. sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/nemh-systemback-precise.list Optional: Stop trusting the key Use apt-key list to list trusted keys. Look for ...

pae stand for physical address extension and allow a cpu with a 32bit address bus to address more than 4G. Notice that if your /proc/cpuinfo show support for pae isn't enough, you need to use a kernel compiled with pae options enabled (eg: I'm using a Debian prebuilt 3.16-2-686-pae) The memory model/layout of a Linux process is defined by the Linux kernel ...

It is possible to perform an in-place encryption but I would strongly suggest that you take a backup first. I wrote an experimental tool that I called inCrypt which can convert between raw (unencrypted), plain (dm-crypt) and LUKS formats. Converting an unencrypted device to LUKS requires that any pre-existing data on the device needs to be shifted to leave ...

I use the option --variant=minbase which seems to be fairly minimal (about 150MB). No text editor, but all essential GNU tools, package manager, and networking functionnalities with iproute.

If your version of tar uses xz for --lzma (which is likely, even Debian 6 used that), you can use the XZ_OPT variable: XZ_OPT=-9 tar --lzma ...

In the second option there are 2 applications that need to be started (tar and gzip). This takes extra time. Also the piping takes extra resources. This results in a longer execution time.

In the former, the implementation of tar uses a gzip library to perform the compression itself. In the latter the output of tar gets piped into a separate executable that performs the compression. The former is probably slightly more efficient as it doesn't involve extra system calls to write/read the data to/from the pipe, but a human would likely not ...

Sorry I can't test this (I'm not using sysvinit no more) but to switch sysvinit's runlevel, use telinit, e.g. telinit 5 - actually runlevel 5 can be start by starting your DE. Just curious, but why to switch to runlevel 1 (single user)? If you want the tty only, I think it's safer and more convenient to work with runlevel 3 (multiuser with networking).

you should at least tell us about the chipset, kernel version and the driver you used. In my case I have to use "wl" driver from broadcom via the bcmwl-kernel-source. That is a common case, because the broadcom chipsets are very common in notebooks. To get the Wifi-Connection stable, I had to upgrade to a current kernel 4.1.x and a patched driver version. ...

You have to reboot your machine after executing first command. Please take a look at How to remove systemd from a Debian jessie/sid installation.

From what I can see, the Marvel; 88se9230 is supported in newer kernels (since 2013 and kernel 3.2 at least). See this bug report and these messages to the linux-ide mailing list. Based on the above, it should be supported by most recent distributions.

Two steps for you to solve this. Your script (/etc/init.d/noip2) should look like: #! /bin/sh # /etc/init.d/noip2 # Supplied by no-ip.com # Modified for Debian GNU/Linux by Eivind L.

The GRUB banner is printed before configuration files are read, so the only way to get rid of them is patching the source or the binaries. There is prior art in this field, though, if you really mean it. Syslinux behaves the same in this respect. The boot loader banner is often used as a "progress bar": different parts of it are printed by different stages ...

Seems you need to (cross) compile a new kernel.

Argh and grumble. I should have paid better attention to the output of dmesg | grep ftdi. There was ftdi stuff in there, but I didn't recognize any of it. In particular one brltty was showing up. I should have googled it. At which point I would have discovered this is the "Braille Display" thing. So apparently, default out of the box sets up some braille ...

Your question is stated in a rather chaotic way, but this is what I understand: You're talking about enabling your wireless network adapter using a command that requires root privileges (hence run using sudo). The command you're executing actually removes a module (see man modprobe under the -r option). It was probably suggested that you remove the ...

Jodka Lemon's answer is correct: cron executes its job, and sends a result mail to "root@orion" (via "mail" or similar) the MTA cannot resolve host orion, since the hostname is not listed in /etc/hosts and not resolvable via dns. so the mailer writes the dead letter information You will find the destination address of crons mail output in the crontab ...

There is far too little context here to give a good answer, but for most reasonable contexts the answer is "probably yes". The operating system itself runs many things in parallell on that single core, after all, and you'd be pretty darn annoyed if you had to wait for some web page to finish loading before your mouse pointer would move.

The main differences in distros are package managers. Really beyond that distros will be mostly the same. Maybe some differences in file locations, but that is not common. Ubuntu is Debian based. I personally can not think of a command that would be different between the two. But I'm sure there are some differences. As Terdon said, 99% of everything will ...

As I'm sure you know, Ubuntu is based upon Debian (Ubuntu releases are rebased against Debian testing periodically) and a there is a lot of similarity between the two. That said, they do differ in sometimes quite significant ways. For example, for many years Ubuntu used upstart as its default init system whereas Debian stuck to sysvinit (both use systemd as ...

You can activate the network console of the Debian Installer via preseeding.

This only makes sense if you # intend to perform the remainder of the installation manually. ...

I had the same issue on my ubuntu 14.04 machine. The problem might be the default usbhid driver prevents your driver to function properly. That may be the reason why the probe is not getting invoked on hotplug. Try removing usbhid module. Check for udev rules defined by your distro, that autoloads the default usbhid driver module on hotplug even if you ...

You can put commands that you want to run before starting xmonad in ~/.xmonad/xmonad-session-rc. If you have a ~/.xsession, its job is to start your whole X session. When that script returns, your session is over. So if you want to use this file, you need to launch xmonad from it. #! /bin/sh /home/kevin/.dropbox-dist/dropboxd & exec xmonad Note that ...

Maybe a bit late, but in general it is unsafe to run any serious machine with root as the only user. In this way anyone administering the machine could destroy it with an unintended command. This is why you should always create one or more less privileged (read: ordinary) users. If needed these less privileged users could use the "sudo" command in order to ...

It's a bug in the twolame packages, tracked as #777223. There's a pending upload which should go into unstable on Sunday; you'll be able to fix your system then (or five days later in stretch). In the meantime, you can revert to the previous version of libasound2-plugins (amd64 and i386), then hold them until libtwolame0 is available; that should fix your ...

apt-mark showauto gives the list of packages which were automatically installed. apt-mark manual marks the given package argument as being manually installed. If you want all automatically installed packages to be marked as manually installed, you can feed the output from apt-mark showauto to apt-mark manual, one package name at a time.

I think you confused the window manager for the desktop environment :p. I.e. that re-installing xfcwm didn't work, because when you removed it, it also removed the package for the DE. One of the dependencies for the DE package is its window manager. To install XFCE use the xfce4 package, and possibly xfce4-goodies. That would be the quickest way to get ...

sudo probably asks for a password and nohup disconnects the process from the controlling terminal. Use that instead: sudo sh -c 'nohup mysql -hlocalhost -P3306 -uxxxxxx -pxxxxxx < /var/lib/mysql/backups/dump.sql &'

Nowadays, it seems the FHS suggests you can freely create whatever subdirectory under /srv, e.g. /srv/archives/bitbucket. What I don't find really clear with the FHS definition is that backups aren't files "served by the system". Anyway, /srv is a free namespace.

You only disabled ChallengeResponseAuthentication. Lines starting with # are comments and won't interpreted as configuration, they are for humans to read.

In the Unix world with the X Window System (X11)¹, there's no concept of “application”. There are several concepts that overlap but don't match exactly: packages — the name you select in a package manager to install the application. If you don't install it via a package manager, there may not be a formal package name. A package may include multiple ...

Since you're using /etc/network/interfaces, you'll need a systemd service to monitor the status of each interface. Check to see if you have /lib/systemd/system/ifup-wait-all-auto.service (installed by the ifupdown package in Ubuntu 15.04). If not, then create /etc/systemd/system/ifup-wait-all-auto.service, and paste in the following: [Unit] Description=Wait ...

Your sources.list shows that you're pulling from the testing repository, not just Jessie. So you aren't running straight Jessie anymore, but a mix of Jessie and Stretch. (Maybe this is a result of your skype installation?) Also, you should very rarely need to apt-get dist-upgrade. The best practice for updates is to use the apper GUI to regularly check for ...
