use the comands lsusb and usb-devices to list the connected devices. The lsusb command will help you find out details about your connected devices. The usb-devices will tell you which driver has claimed the device in question (this most not always be the right one) Booting with a ubuntu live medium often helps to find out the proper driver, since ubuntu has ...

So it turned out that libstd++6_4.9.0-8 depends on gcc-4.9-base (= 4.9.0-8). However I got installed gcc-4.9-base of version 4.9.0-7. I figured it out after I tried to install previously downloaded package with dpkg. # apt-get download libstdc++6=4.9.0-8 # dpkg -i libstdc++6_4.9.0-8_amd64.deb (Reading database ... 64836 files and directories currently ...

Sometimes you need to restore config files too! not just reinstall. sudo apt-get install --reinstall xxxx Reinstall the application, keeps the config files. This could be helpful, but sometimes you need to start fresh, so what I use is this: sudo dpkg -r xxxx //to remove that xxxx package sudo dpkg -P xxxx //to purge all related files then ...

There is a bug report indicating that Debian Wheezy (which seems to have the version 2.9.0-2 of the fuse package, the bug is reported fixed in 2.9.0-3) may set wrong permissions for /dev/fuse (crw------T 1 root root in my case). As stated around the comments of the earlier posts, this can be fixed by running the following commands as root: chmod g+rw ...

How the shell finds your programs When you type foo in the command-line of your shell, it looks foo up in a set of paths defined by your shell's PATH environment variable (which you can inspect by running echo $PATH). So my guess is simpe: the asterisk package you had before reinstalling had the asterisk binary located in a place listed in your user's ...

Gnome 3 was the culprit. After some googling, the solution was to change its configuration like this: dconf write /org/gnome/settings-daemon/plugins/cursor/active false Reference: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=171595

You can run GDM without local X-display (native or virtual). X11 is a network protocol and GDM is only "client" that connects (via net) to the X-server, it doesn't matter if it is local or remote. Of course there can be problems if you have NAT (remember! there must be GDM → NAT → X-server port forwarding, not X → NAT → GDM like on VNC or RDP) or ...

I finally found a solution in this forum thread. In short, there's a boot parameter to set (radeon.dpm), so I fixed by editing /etc/default/grub to something like: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet radeon.dpm=1" Then sudo update-grub and reboot.

I got the same problem and was because the client tried to connect locally to its own rpc. I had to add 127.0.0.1 to my /etc/hosts.allow in the client machine.

I too hit this bug (after trying to connect a dozen USB network interface devices). I'm pretty sure it's not an electrical current problem with the devices: they are all on powered hubs and well within the current limitations. I think it's an issue of allocating interrupts or some other resource. I tried the workaround of disabling USB 3.0 in the BIOS but I ...

I have posted my solution here, repost it for reference. In my situation, the error appears when I try to run an application (compiled on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS) using GLIBC_2.14 on Debian Wheezy (which installs glibc 2.13 by default). I use a tricky way to run it, and get correct result: Download libc6 and libc6-dev from Ubuntu 12.04 LTS Run dpkg command to ...

A few ideas: Have you enabled ipv6 routing (sysctl -w net.ipv6.conf.all.forwarding=1); might need to do that for each intf Will your he-net tunnel forward/accept the IPv6 addresses you're giving out to your clients? If not, you will need to NAT.

You can use hwclock to show the results in localtime or utc. Just use the corresponding flag for each case: jim@g6:~$ sudo hwclock --localtime lun 11 ago 2014 03:12:18 CLT -0.547401 seconds jim@g6:~$ sudo hwclock --utc dom 10 ago 2014 23:12:22 CLT -0.672848 seconds Then run date and check which of the above results match the output from date.

There's not much you can do. Here's why: This diagram shows physical layout of partitions on your disk. I have added arrows pointing to /dev/sda1 and unallocated space. You can't merge them because they are not side by side - partitions have to be continuous. You could merge them into one logical partition if you had LVM set up. I have never used it ...

The bootable flag is used by the Microsoft MBR to decide which partition to boot from ("chain-load" in GRUB terminology). When you install a Linux distribution, that Microsoft MBR gets replaced by GRUB's MBR code, which doesn't care about the partitions' bootable flags because it has its own, more sophisticated, way of deciding how to proceed. The bootable ...

Since Linux uses GRUB, it doesn't care about the partition being marked as bootable. You can even boot Linux from an extended partition. When GRUB is loaded, it uses a data file to determine where all the bootable Operating Systems are found.

Most distributions do not update to the latest kernel version available immediately. They usually have their own patchset they would apply against it for any distro-specific customization, and they need to be tested for stability with other packages in the distro before they actually enter the testing branch (Jessie), let alone the stable branch (in this ...

My understanding of Ubuntu is that it is a sub-distribution of Debian. That is, Ubuntu is Debian just like CentOS is Red Hat or like lime-green is a type of green. With this understanding, most of the differences are on the surface. There might be different default packages that it comes with, for example. But if you want to add something, on both you'll ...

This cannot be done using Virtualbox. Just create a liveusb with the iso of debian via UNetbootin or burn the iso to a cd.

Maybe this was obvious, but the problem is not that you were dropping into BusyBox (initramfs). The problem is the 10 lines above that prompt, where you see almost every attempt at mounting kernel assets failing one after the other.

It seems that line 20 in /var/lib/dpkg/info/fuse.postinst has a syntax error. According to this the -e should be changed to -a. I did that and finally installed on my test VM.

Use GDebi. It can install a local .deb file via the command line alike the dpkg command, but with access to repositories to resolve dependencies. You have to install package gdebi (or gdebi-core for command line utility only).

The action of double-tapping would ideally be program-independent and should thus be implemented at a lower level than user programs or even window managers (which you don't want grabbing all keypresses to check for double-tapping).
