comment Different console font sizes on two installations of debian wheezy
Yes, I mean the virtual consoles, and also the console that appears during boot. I am not sure if that is a virtual console already: as far as I understand, at least part of the boot logging is shown before the virtual consoles are started.

@Faheem Mitha: Are the text consoles also controlled by the X server? Anyway, I don't have this file on either system.

It can be that I chose desktop in the installer only for one instance but I am not sure any more. Does gnome get installed on a non-desktop installation (that would be the older one)?

@Faheem Mitha: Yes. I suppose X was chosen automatically when installing the gnome desktop.

comment scp does not transfer files correctly
Problem solved: following the indications in the accepted answer I check my desktop's memory and found out it was not working properly. I replaced the RAM and then transferred the files again: all md5 files verify correctly now.

It is the memory: I booted a linux recovery usb and the test immediately filled the screen with error messages. Tomorrow I will go to the shop where I bought the memory, maybe they'll replace it. Otherwise I will buy new memory.

I have now scp-ed from the laptop to the desktop on another disk (an external USB drive), and I have the same problem. So either both disks have the same defect, or it is something else.

I know. This has been going on for a few months. Luckily most of my important data is source files. I also have an old backup on disk which was done on the old computer. I might check it against my current data after I have solved this problem (provided memory turns out to be the problem).
