Re: Nvidia fails to rebuild on Kernel Upgrade

I installed and used SMXI to upgrade Liquorix, and then Nvidia (Even got the later 280 driver). http://smxi.org/ Thanks to the folks at SMXI. +1 to that! On Debian squeeze I installed the 2.6.38bpo (backports) kernel and dkms didn't work. So after some fussing with various things I also added smxi ...

Re: hibernate problem ...

I'm not sure whether this has any bearing on your hibernate issue (I'm having issues of my own, sorry!), but I did notice in your fstab it looks like your original root / partition is commented? # / was on /dev/sda1 during installation #UUID=385ecae6-bd34-41c3-a524-974b8cd6d17f / ext3 errors=remount...

Re: Debian Weather Applet from Mancoosi

If the error message is in French, go ahead and post it and I may understand. I know a little bit and have a French-English dictionary (plus I'm studying the language atm anyway...) Or if it's easy enough to change locale, do that... I haven't researched that topic yet! Or, there is a French languag...

Firstly, I haven't installed this so anyone else please feel free to jump in here, especially if you've installed this package. But, I just pulled up the url for the repo, and for the amd64 selection the package list appeared to be empty. On the i386 it does have a deb package, with depends of: libc...

Re: Microphone works but software does not capture sound...

I had some issues when I installed sound recorder, figuring out what to enable etc. You could play with sound recorder to test things too, if you want. One thing I did figure out is that you have to check the settings under > system > preferences > sound, on the recording tab I have a 'capture' then...

Re: Firefox 5 won't start.

per the debian mozilla link by craigevil above, here is what you want to put in the sources.list for Iceweasel 5. It shows for squeeze-backports, but that is the correct location in this case for Testing / wheezy also: deb http://mozilla.debian.net/ squeeze-backports iceweasel-5.0 I used it to updat...

Re: how to revert to previous firefox install

I believe you should just be able to remove the link by using rm. i.e.:
rm /usr/local/bin/firefox4

One thing you can try to see if it works before you remove the link (or after should be fine too...) is to open a terminal and type out the whole path to firefox, i.e. /opt/firefox/firefox

Re: It's More Than Time for a NEW LMDE Re-spin...

Debian also has weekly builds of testing here: http://cdimage.debian.org/cdimage/weekly-builds/

You could grab that and then add the mint repo to your sources.list to mint-ify your install.

Re: swap partition disappeared after dist-upgrade

From your output, you're right it appears there's no sda2, or 3+. It's possible something like smartmontools (I think that's the name of the package...) would give you more details. Or something like gparted may be able to create new partition space and re-size your current sda1 down. However before...

Re: swap partition disappeared after dist-upgrade

I could see where possibly a swap partition was no longer recognized due to a uuid change or something like that, possibly... there were some issues along those lines at one point, as I recall. But the partition was still there, it just wasn't labeled correctly so it wasn't mounted or some similar i...

Re: LMDE crash at login screen

It sounds like it might be related to a bug in udev after an upgrade, if this was a new install and then you applied updates? Apparently there's a directory /run that isn't needed with the new version and it's presence causes issues but of course it wasn't removed during the update. There's a thread...

Re: gksu problems after update

I just had a thought that may or may not be helpful. I think the issue may be with Policykit or sudoers. Generally su is considered root, and sudo will default to the first non-root user to perform tasks with root privileges. So, unless you have enabled root access (for user root, not the sudo user)...

Re: Multi-core CPU not detected since update

Since the boot to the flash drive shows the correct info., what I'd suggest is to look at and see if you can save a copy of dmesg (you should be able to type dmesg in a terminal or read it as root from /var/log/dmesg) when booted to the flash drive, and when booted to lmde. You'd be looking for entr...

In addition to changing mirrors to some place closer, I use debdelta in a terminal to reduce total download sizes.

Re: Slow Upgrades

Try to reload or apt-get update to get an update of the file lists after you change the mirror location. If that doesn't help you might want to wait a bit and try to update again. There were some issues with updates over the weekend, maybe things haven't totally settled down yet.

Re: accepting new configs during upgrade

One time I asked to compare the difference and I wasn't sure about the changes, but I figured it probably would be best to go with the package maintainer's version (i.e. the new one). To be on the safe side, so I could revert back if I wanted or needed to, I opened a terminal window and (as root) I ...
