I was able to solve this problem by following commands : mv /var/lib/dpkg/info/coturn.* /tmp/ dpkg --remove --force-remove-reinstreq coturn This worked. And I installed coturn again, then it worked.

The short answer is either always use UTC as your timezone for all devices accessing the media or don't use FAT32 but NTFS or similar for your removable media : The way Windows and Linux store timestamps differ, and there are intractable problems due to the fact a file timestamp is stored in local time but the timezone is not stored.

Change the permissions in fstab back to the default. As a normal user: sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade && sudo apt-get install build-essential module-assistant sudo m-a prepare Mount the Guest Additions CD using the VirtualBox Menu (sudo mount /media/cdrom) sudo sh /media/cdrom/VBoxLinuxAdditions.run If the error you noted ...

The installer considers that the USB stick you used for installation is a CD or DVD image; it left a reference to it in /etc/apt/sources.list as a source of packages for later. If you only wish to install packages from the Internet, you can remove the line mentioning cdrom: in /etc/apt/sources.list, then update the package cache with sudo apt-get update ...

You need to modify your /etc/apt/sources.list and comment out the line beginning with deb cdrom:. Use the editor of your choice to add a # directly before deb cdrom: save the file and then run sudo apt-get update.

Can you get to xdm and select the Xfce desktop before logging in. If I remember correctly there is a selection menu in top right of screen at the xdm login screen. I'm assuming you didn't select that before?

You probably need to install firmware-iwlwifi from the non-free repositories; this is the package which contains iwlwifi-6000-4.ucode. The Debian wiki provides detailed instructions. In summary: edit /etc/apt/sources.list to add the non-free repository if necessary (you will end up with a line like deb http://httpredir.debian.org/debian/ jessie main ...

Just for the record Elementary OS != Debian, it might be similar in some ways, but it's unlikely that they only changed the name. Look at your grub configuration, typically found in /etc/grub or /etc/grub.d, it's probably just a matter of changing the order of things in it. On my machine (that runs Debian exclusively, so I can't test, but if elemtary OS ...

PLEASE NOTE If you already have the Debian 8 version of VirtualBox installed this may not work. If you need VirtualBox installed and working for other virtual images this may break that.

The document you linked to is the FAQ, which, while relevant, isn't necessarily regarded as authoritative (the distinctions are probably subtle though and any inconsistency is really a bug). The authoritative document is the Debian Policy Manual, which has a whole chapter dedicated to maintainer scripts. Because that's not all that easy to read, there are ...

Does your hard disk have an EFI partition? I've seen this error, even when setting the bios to legacy mode, if there is no EFI partition. A simple way of checking is to download a recent ubuntu, install it and inspect the partition table. You should then be able to install pardus over the top of ubuntu, but don't allow it to delete the EFI partition ...

My answer is a slight upgrade (IMHO, YMMV) on @mariotomo (who I upvoted) in the following bash scriptlet also uses gpg parameterizes more (also uses a different keyserver, though in this case I suspect it makes little difference) You can also comment-out the eval line for a "dry-run": the scriptlet will then only show you what it intends to do, without ...

As for firewalls, I would be worried where they are placed, your Internet speeds, and how much rules you need on them. They can pretty much dictate the kind of hardware you will need. Be aware for more performance/higher speeds you may need better NIC cards. In the past I used top tier Intel Pro cards. About router/firewalls in ISP settings, I used to have ...

The error There is no public key available for the following key IDs indicates a serious security issue: an operating-system package cannot be checked for integrity with its public key, because its public key is missing.

As seen in this Ubuntu answer. A missing mouse pointer in Debian Gnome might also be solved by entering "mouse" in the launcher. This starts the mouse and touchpad settings dialogue and the mouse appears again.

You need to delete your local libgmp completely: rm /usr/local/lib/libgmp.so* There's no need to run ldconfig afterwards. ldconfig makes sure the appropriate symlinks are present; libgmp.so.10 is a symlink to the latest library with that soname (run ls -l /usr/local/lib/libgmp.so* before deleting the files to see what I mean). Previously you deleted that ...

You should be able to create it with dd on a Mac. I have done this successfully with an Arch Linux ISO. Make sure the output destination is the USB device, not a partition on the device.

nftables are currently under development to replace iptables, and while they don't say as much, I would consider it "beta" for now. I don't have any insight into their timeline, but you can read more here: http://netfilter.org/projects/nftables/ Many linux distributions already have iptables enabled by default. Either it's compiled in, or they load the ...

You should be able to run MATE without using systemd as your system's init, but as it stands in Debian currently you need to have the systemd package installed, because mate-desktop-environment ends up depending on libpam-systemd which depends on systemd. To use all this alongside sysvinit (or Upstart) you need to install systemd-shim instead of ...

I'd use shorewall in preference to writing iptables rules directly. There are also alternatives such as firewalld. With regard to kernel compilation it really depends whether or not the features that you need are available either in the stock kernel or as a modular add-in. If they are not, then you're going to need to roll your own. However, that's not ...

Creating new users with adduser, which claims to be a friendly frontend, provides none of these groups. I checked a multi-user system, running Debian's GNOME desktop. Users beyond the first were not a member of these groups. The system has been running for a while without noticing a problem from this. (lpadmin is the only one I have any concern about ...

First i would recommend booting off of the grub rescue disk. If it finds the windows install and allows you to boot into windows, then you are okay. Now you just need to add the location and menu entry to the grub config file.

You've already installed the necessary packages (linux-headers-4.4.0-1-amd64 and its dependency, linux-headers-4.4.0-1-common), but the headers don't end up in /usr/include/linux, they end up in /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/source/include/linux. As Gilles points out, these headers are only intended to be used by the kernel; they're exposed via /lib/modules so ...

It is perfectly possible to install multiple versions of a library in Debian. Pinning is the way to go. In this case I decided to obtain libgstreamer0.10 from Debian Unstable (running Debian Testing myself). Create the file /etc/apt/sources.list.d/unstable.list with contents: deb http://ftp.nl.debian.org/debian/ unstable main deb-src ...

you are using a wrong order: export=en_US.utf-8 this should be: export LC_ALL=en_US.utf-8 or: export LANG=en_US.utf-8 Anyway, as the Debian wiki says, the use of LC_ALL is discouraged as it only lasts while session (i.e: an open terminal session). You could add it to a startup script, but this is discouraged again by Debian's wiki. If you just want ...

Take a snapshot of the log directory, one way or another. Your scenario sounds like it calls for running the tests in a virtual machine. Take a snapshot of the VM, run the tests, and once you have the test results, discard the VM state and restore the snapshot. If you want to run the tests without making a VM snapshot, you could take a backup of the log ...

Add this router to your /etc/exim4/exim4.conf.template file (assuming non-split config), before the lowuid_aliases router (assuming you really want such a spam-magnet): catchall: driver = redirect domains = +local_domains data = you@gmail.com

First, find out what the package name is (which may or may not be the same or even similar to the .deb filename...but usually is at least similar): dpkg -I opera.deb | grep 'Package:' then remove that package, using either dpkg or apt-get (or apt or aptitude etc etc etc). dpkg -r packagename Optionally use --purge rather than -r if you want to ...

You can use logrorate -f if your system uses logrorate. This should rotate (i.e. empty) all the logs immediatelly. See logrotate(8). Edit: In fact your system does not need to use logrotate permanently, you can have prepared configuration file just for this one rotation and run it only after pushing the time backwards. Logrorate has also benefit of not ...

This seems to have been overlooked: Defaults umask_override which does what was asked (see the sudoers manpage): umask_override If set, sudo will set the umask as specified by sudoers without modification. This makes it possible to specify a more permissive umask in sudoers than the user's own umask and matches historical behavior. If umask_override ...

I am no Linux connoisseur, but to me installing libgl1-mesa-swx11 did at least part of the trick : 3d functionalities now seem to work. (note : libgl1-mesa-glx was suppressed at the installation of libgl1-mesa-swx11)

A bug that allow a remote individual to crash the software (DoS) isn't exactly at the same level of risk as what we normally think of when we talk about "vulnerabilities". I wouldn't call this a "vulnerable" package; otherwise, you're elevating any bug that can cause the program to crash to a security "vulnerability". Also, it's not clear to me whether ...

In my case I brought up CentOS 7 and tried following everyone's instructions on this page. I kept running into a device busy message. The reason in my opinion why you are getting the "mdadm: cannot open device /dev/sda1: Device or resource busy" error message is because the device is already mounted as something else. I also did not want to make any changes ...

Debian has security tracker which shows status of the CVE's in all supported releases. Here is your: https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/CVE-2015-8041 You can check it is fixed in version 2.3-1+deb8u3. The fix was probably backported to the older version, which prevents breaking other things with rebase to new version in stable release (point of ...

Check the kernel processes wouldn't be on loop check top command and also check your kern.log and log for issue. You can find them on : /var/log/kern.log I guess Kernel won't accept keyboard interrupts sometimes.

Do you have /sbin in your path? Most likely you are trying to run mkfs.ext4 as a normal user. Unless you've added it yourself (e.g. in ~/.bashrc or /etc/profile etc), root has /sbin and /usr/sbin in $PATH, but normal users don't by default. Try running it from a root shell (e.g. after sudo -i) or as: sudo mkfs.ext4 -L hdd_misha /dev/sdb1 BTW, normal ...

Without superuser you won't be able to do what you are asking. Typically you would only need to backup your /home/ folder. Some config files in /etc may be good to have backed up, but most of the rest of the root folder is for the os and shouldn't be backed up.

I do scene extracting from videos using vlc for linux. If you don't have it, use apt-get install vlc to install it. Once installed, you can use a variance of the following command line to extract frame(s) out of your video. The default image format is png and it is good for my purpose. If you insist on gif images, I suggest installing imagemagick for ...
