The most likely reason that the space wasn't feed up is because you have an open file handle. The space will only be freed up when nothing is holding the file open. So restart the spp the file belonged to and the space will probably become available. Run lsof to see open files. There is a post on removing files which haven't freed their space You can also ...

I had a similar problem running Lubuntu 20.10, 5.8 kernel, in an old Macbook 2006. In my case the solution was to mask gpe17 using boot parameter I added boot parameter acpi_mask_gpe=0x17 to GRUB and rebooted. Add acpi_mask_gpe=0x17 to /etc/default/grub line GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT, then run update-grub and reboot. That solved the high CPU utilization. I ...

After a lot of trial and error, trying various options discovered during my research, I've found a combination that works as expected. I believe the causes of the previous failures were the absence of: After=clamav-daemon.service syslog.target network-online.target Requires=clamav-daemon.service and Type=simple rc-local.service file [Unit] Description=...

I asked two questions with answers that describe the security-related aspects of Debian's repositories: Who builds the Debian packages? (a good introduction to the packaging process) "Do package managers check the hashes of packages?" (duplicate) -> How is the authenticity of Debian packages guaranteed? (here you can probably find the answer ...

I have been having the same issue sporadically with Debian 10 on a Lenovo system too old for any BIOS/UEFI update support. Based on https://wiki.debian.org/Microcode, I did the following for my system: sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list Add contrib non-free to all deb and deb-src lines. For example: deb http://security.debian.org/ stretch/updates main contrib ...

To install a minimal Debian, use the standard installer (e.g. on a network installation image), in either graphical or text mode, and when you get to the “Software selection” phase (towards the end), deselect everything: This will result in a small setup with around 220 packages installed (the exact number will vary depending on the locale you chose and the ...

Download the CD ISO, but to have WiFi access you should download the second or third ISO. The CD ISO contains minimum packages, rest of the required packages will be installed during the installation process (if required). So, internet connection is a must. Then during installation process untick all the desktop environments and then continue, after the ...

Instead of saving it in init.d, try adding the script in /etc/rc.local EG: open /etc/rc.local, then path_to_binary path_to_scipt

Press the shift key - or any other key that isn't the space bar, enter, or right arrow key, but I prefer shift or alt because they don't usually constitute an actual key command by themselves - in order to halt the automatic countdown during the grub menu. Then you can select 'advanced startup options' which is a sub-menu that lets you start in rescue mode. ...

In Debian, the default directory that contains xorg.conf files is indeed /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/. This would be the correct location to place custom X settings. Here is the configuration file you need to force a specific resolution (and have none other to choose from!). Save it in /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-monitor.conf and reboot. Note, I generated ...

If you didn't reboot : You should probably use : lsof -a +L1 can help you find out which deleted (rm'd) files still have opened "file handles" (ie, some program still points to it and thus the file itself is not deleted yet from the filesystem, even though its last name entry has been deleted by rm). The offset will hint at the largest files ...

Find the file with this command line (it searches and prints the names of files whose size is 180G or more): $ find /home/vincent -size +180G That might return more than one file. Then you can remove that. It is probably inside a trash folder.

I ran into this error on my linux server (running Debian 10) when navigating folders and accessing files, despite the drive passing all SMART tests.

If you want to compile gtk3 apps, you should install the libgtk-3-dev package: sudo apt install libgtk-3-dev Compiling from source isn't necessary in most use cases.

I managed to update the firmware using a version of the method in the question. The difference was that rather than using the debian package genisoimage from the repo, I used the perl script that the package is based on (downloaded from https://userpages.uni-koblenz.de/~krienke/ftp/noarch/geteltorito/geteltorito/). Substituing the geteltorito script for ...

Your system has a badly mixed-up set of packages from various stages of in-development versions of Debian. For example, its libc6 package is the version currently in testing (that will become Debian 11), its locales package is an old version from some point in the development of Debian 10... To get things back into some semblance of order, you’ll have to ...

... Put bluntly, your system is badly dated. 'testing' is the static name of the staging repository -- the repository that will become the next 'stable' version. At this point in time, that would be Bullseye - debian 11. 'Jessie' is debian 8, which has been discontinued [in 2018][1] and fell out of even long term support back in July. I suspect that this ...

You must have the intel-vaapi-driver package installed in order to utilize VA hardware acceleration for an Intel iGPU. Now you haven't specified your Debian version but https://packages.debian.org/source/bullseye/intel-vaapi-driver should work. You won't need to specify any environment variables to use it.

The purpose of --oknodo is to avoid failing when the system is already in the requested state. For example, if you write an init script using start-stop-daemon, the behaviour specified by Debian Policy is that the start action should not fail if the dæmon is already running, and stop should not fail if the dæmon is already stopped; the --oknodo option ...

debian/rules build is still supposed to work, but many packages rely on dpkg-buildpackage’s environment and don’t build correctly, as you’ve noticed. To work around this, you can run dpkg-buildpackage -T build

You can reinstall all the packages using aptitude, although this is a quite slow process, but if you want to you can do like so: dpkg --get-selections \* | awk '{print $1}' | xargs -l1 aptitude reinstall You'll have to switch to a console first if the graphical environment is not working.

Before Debian 10, the live session did not have an installer included. That is why you do not see the installer icon on the desktop and in the dash in GNOME (where Calamares installer in Debian 10 is) and cannot launch it from terminal. The only way to start installation in Debian 9.4.0 "stretch" is to choose an "Installer" option instead ...

Eventually I found a solution. gpg-agent is closed after logout from bash session because it is in supervised mode.

Your card has Nvidia Optimus optimisation and the regular configuration breaks Xorg on your system so you'll have to look at: https://wiki.debian.org/NVIDIA%20Optimus to see the best configuration to work around it. I went with "Using NVIDIA GPU as the primary GPU" and it seems to have fixed it. I also put the BusID "PCI:XX:XX:X" from the ...

According to your history, you've used ulimit (not utime). Typo perhaps?

The GRUB commands you used, insmod all_video; search --label test; linux /vmlinuz root=LABEL=test; initrd /initrd.img pick up the kernel (/vmlinuz) and initramfs (/initrd.img) from the default GRUB root, which is your parent system’s. This is why specifying insmod all_video; set root=(hd1,gpt5); linux /vmlinuz root=/dev/sda5; initrd /initrd.img instead ...

Remark that "memtest86+" is not the same as "memtest86" (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Memtest86). It has no support for DDR4 memory (yet?). Maybe your PC has that kind of memory? It's around since 2014. If you have DDR3 or below, memtest86+ should work. But you presumably need to set your BIOS to boot in CSM (Compatibility Support Mode, ...

Nautilus is file system browser, and it works in userspace. The manipulation with disk volumes is reserved for user root. Nautilus asks the user root to do the mounting routines. The native unix filesystems respects the owener/group/everyone permission. The foreign NTFS filesystem is treated without respect to permission. That may cause the described problem....

You have installed dotnet core 3.1 but you want the .Net Framework. dotnet core is the cross platform framework which runs on Linux. .Net Framework is AFAIK Windows only. Not sure if this what you want but if you use Wine you can emulate it on Linux: Install Microsoft Net Framework 4.7 In Ubuntu 18.04/18.10

This is addressed in the “Managing the links” section of Policy, which described how links to services should be handled: The default behaviour is to enable autostarting your package’s daemon. Here I’m reading “autostarting” in a wide sense; technically since this section of Policy only deals with “links”, i.e., configuring services to start at boot, it ...

Based on the setup described in phpmyadmin : Depends: php-phpmyadmin-sql-parser (< 5~~) but 5.4.0-1 is to be installed, this happened because you’ve upgraded to Debian unstable.

I was with the same problem and found that the getent passwd and getent group doesn't return the users from LDAP. The work around that a found was to output the getent in the chroot directory. getent passwd > /<chroot directory>/etc/passwd getent group > /<chroot directory>/etc/group

Question is did you run those two commands or not? sudo systemctl disable --now apache2 sudo apt-get install nginx php7.4-fpm First command disables apache2.

The 16-group limit isn’t related to the kernel, but to NFS. On Linux, since kernel 2.6.3, processes can have up to 65,536 supplementary groups. Going in the other direction, there isn’t any limit on the number of users in a group set by the kernel or the C library, apart from the limit imposed by the maximum group identifier (so 232 different groups in the ...

It appears that connman does something with DHCP. It's not necessary anyway so best not to use it. Use iw (command for doing things with wifi) and wpasupplicant (adds wpa- commands to /etc/network/interfaces) and this in the /etc/network/interfaces: auto wlan0 allow-hotplug wlan0 iface wlan0 inet dhcp wpa-ssid RWB wpa-psk password

Workaround. To prevent changes under /var/lib/locales/supported.d/, set files in it with the "immutable (i)" attribute. So instead of removing files, empty them.

So thanks to my colleague @BrettDG, I was able to make it work under Debian as well.

The problem is on the drivers, if your GPU is GCN 1.1 or older this will work for you. You have to uninstall xserver-xorg-video-all packages with apt remove *xserver-xorg-video* use lspci -nn | grep VGA to check what GPU you do have. You will get an output like this: 01:05.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] RS880 [...

Some years ago I had done a similar process at work. I had a samba share on a linux accepting files and the goal was to move the video files from there to another directory and process them with ffmpeg and then upload it to youtube.
