Looks like you missed something. From the Debian documentation: 6.3.2. Setting Up Users And Passwords Just before configuring the clock, the installer will allow you to set up the “root” account and/or an account for the first user. Other user accounts can be created after the installation has been completed. 6.3.2.1. Set the Root Password ...

WebEx need the 32bit version. First all you need to have a multiarch system and then instal that package as followed. apt-get install libgcj:i386

This appears to be related to bug #665487. To remove dovecot-managesieved, try renaming /etc/init.d/dovecot temporarily: sudo mv /etc/init.d/dovecot{,.disabled} sudo apt-get purge dovecot-managesieved sudo mv /etc/init.d/dovecot{.disabled,} This should avoid the attempt to restart dovecot during the package's removal.

looks like you want RPCMOUNTDOPTS="--manage-gids -V 3" It seems there are no compatibility problem with -V 3 and --manage-gids but I didn't test.

This is still quite a broad question. Verifying packages The contents of the mirrors are signed using PGP keys, directly or indirectly. Starting at the "root" of a Debian distribution: Release, signed with a detached signature in Release.gpg, contains the hashes (MD5, SHA1, SHA256) of all the package indices and installer hashes; the package indices ...

As to the second part of your question (not in the header) Use xdpyinfo instead, if you want to read something like screen resolution. It doesn't cause that brief freeze.

There's a reason why there are two commands: upgrade only upgrades packages but never deletes any or installs any extra, whereas dist-upgrade can also add and remove packages if necessary to upgrade everything that can be upgraded. For example, if the newer version of mariadb-server depends on a newer library version, apt upgrade won't install the new ...

Example : https://packages.debian.org/wheezy/joe → → All the dependencies are listed : The red dots. Be aware that the dependencies can also depend on some packages : Click the dependencies for a check. ... "armhf" : See the list at the bottom of the page. Click armhf ,,,, and you will come to a page with links.

The possibility to use suffixes like K and `M were introduced with systemd 228, Debian Jessie ships systemd 215 and hence cannot use this feature. As a workaround you can manually perform the multiplication and specify bytes instead.

You can combine the two approaches, do cross compilation with multiarch for dependencies but use a dedicated chroot for each target architecture. This way you won't have as many problems with conflicts. I can't gaurantee that it will work for your package but it has a much better chance that trying to do all architectures under the same root filesystem.

You have pam_google_authenticator.so enabled in /etc/pam.d/common-auth. common-auth is included in (almost) every other file in /etc/pam.d/ - that's its purpose, to provide common authentication rules for programs that use pam. If you don't want every program to use google 2-factor auth, delete it from /etc/pam.d/common-auth.

Googling your error message, networking restart is deprecated, turns up several interesting links. It looks like you need ifup, and to kill dhclient if it is running. BTW, your question is phrased as interface crashes. That wording suggests a kernel problem, and may mislead people reading the question.

Unfortunately, there is no simple answer to this question. Many GUI things have no easy cli equivalent, and these days they are even more complicated due to things like dbus, udev, even systemd, and the use of xml instead of simple ini files. For some actions you may be able to see the result in your home directory. For example, create a timestamp file with ...

Depends on your distribution, you can place the script in a run level (that is executed after your user is logged). In contrast to cron, it will be executed interactively! You have to check what are your run level meaning (because you might changed it from the default). The default run levels for Debian & Ubuntu are: 0 System Halt 1 Single user 2 ...

On a debian system, postgresql files and directories should be owned by user postgres, in group postgres, with permissions of either 0700 (directories) or 0600 (files). If they're not that, you can repair perms & ownership with: sudo chown -R postgres:postgres /var/lib/postgresql/9.4/ sudo chmod -R u=rwX,go= /var/lib/postgresql/9.4/ Note the capital ...

As you figured out, ln only replaced symlinks. Fixing this will involve at least reinstalling the packages which provide the missing symlinks... Using find's -L option combined with the -type l test allows broken symlinks to be identified; then dpkg -S will identify the corresponding package in most cases: dpkg -S $(find -L /usr/bin -type l) Filtering ...

no way it should create those symbolic links on same path with the same filenames as the origin. it should throw an error that file exist already. to prove that it will not, here's the output in my vm on same distro with same command.

There is no functionality that will tell you which folder your mail was delivered to. Even the tricks that tell you if the message was read, don't tell you where it was read from. However, you can get a good idea from the major providers, gmail, yahoo, and microsoft, if you configure DMARC. This builds on your DKIM and SPF configuration, and can report ...

No, you will get a "delivered" notice or an "error" notice. Once the mail is accepted by the remote end, you don't get to know where it goes after that. At least not on the MTA side of things. One of the errors may be "rejected cause of spam" or "rejected because of SPF" or the like, but if your email is accepted, even to the spam folder, you will not get ...

No, what happens after your email leaves your system cannot be traced unless you have access to the receiving computer, or if there is some spam filter program that gives feedback. Such feedback programs would sent an email back asking for confirmation, so that automatic spam could be distinguished from real message sent by humans, but once bots were smart ...

No, what happens at the destination is visible only there (unless it bounces your email back to you).

I just had the same problem on my Debian / Ubuntu / Mint machine getting it to work with an Nvidia GTX-960M.

OK, i found the answer. The article i was using was rock solid! The problem was in Common Name,known today as FQDN (fully qualified domain name).

The directories containing system libraries should to be referenced in /etc/ld.so.conf. (If you change those then call ldconfig to update the corresponding binary database.)

The latest version of the NVIDIA drivers doesn't support your graphics chipset. You should install the appropriate version as provided via the non-free repositories hosted by Debian. The full instructions are on the Debian wiki, but basically for your 740M, you need version 340.96, available for Jessie (which I'm assuming is the version you're using, Debian ...

Actually, you need to download the USB ISO file. Else, you can burn your current DVD ISO on a DVD and proceed to install.

You need to ensure you don't have another, more general pin priority which takes priority over your non-free-excluding rule. For example, if your /etc/apt/preferences file (or another file in /etc/apt/preferences.d) contains something like the following: Package: * Pin: release a=unstable Pin-Priority: 200 then unstable packages will have pin priority ...

d is an abbreviation for default. The default and actual permissions are independent. Run the setfacl command a second time without the d:, then the permissions should work as desired. I assume you want the effect of both commands. The output of getfacl can suggest this conclusion to you, by showing default: expanded showing the original Access Control ...

I've managed to solve the problem. In this link you can read the following: IPv4: Hash-based multipath routing. When the routing cache was removed in 3.6, the IPv4 multipath algorithm changed from more or less being destination-based into being quasi-random per-packet scheduling. This increased the risk of out-of-order packets and made it ...

According to the archlinux wiki on the subject, you should be using the .xinitrc to set your session information. From there you'll likely be looking for the exec command and modifying it from cinnamon to wmaker. Obviously not a debian resource but the archlinux wiki on xinit does go through configuration options in good detail, might be useful to review.

dd in your example does full system image backup, byte to byte mirroring /dev/sda to /dev/sdb. However you must be sure that /dev/sdb if equal or larger size disk. Modern systems do not permit plain copying like that because they embed some other unique identity information like UUIDs into volumes; there maybe issues with LVM setups, on-disk cryptography ...

I assume you've checked all the volume levels in the sound preferences! pavucontrol may be useful to check the levels in more detail. Given that you have quite recent hardware, you could try a more recent kernel, from the Debian backports: echo "deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian jessie-backports main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/jessie-backports.list ...

TL;DR when you're having strange problems with config files changing all the time check your /etc/network/if-*.d files, if you've already checked systemd configs. Turns out another option for where something can change the iptables command (or really anything) is in the if-up.d or if-down.d folders which deal make changes based on internet connectivity.

You are most likely after: ffmpeg -i "A_File.mp4" -ss 00:00:0.0 -t 10 -an "B_File.mp4" To do it a bit faster you can also try adding -threads $(nproc) eg: ffmpeg -threads $(nproc) -i "A_File.mp4" -ss 00:00:0.0 -t 10 -an "B_File.mp4" There is already a substantial number of articles and documentation on achieving these results including: ...

It doesn't belong to any package. It's a configuration file you create to modify the behaviour of the dynamic linker. man ld.so provides the detail. /etc/ld.so.nohwcap When this file is present the dynamic linker will load the non-optimized version of a library, even if the CPU supports the optimized version. I believe this has changed in ...

Maybe you could use audit. Fedora enables it by default, and it floods the journal with NETFILTER_CFG lines. See this question: Audit on changes to the running iptables configuration In the example shown, the relevant process is iptables, which may not be very helpful. However it also records ppid, the parent process (as well as the obvious pid). In ...

I've been looking into this and apparently the best way to solve this is to reinstall your entire OS. Also, if you removed lightdm and installed it again, did you use apt-get remove lightdm or apt-get purge lightdm? Purging removes all configuration files as well.
