i can't figure out what to put in my sources.list file --
anything i try with "apt-get" seems to insist on there being a
point in the remote repository path that includes a "dists"
directory, and browsing around

        http://people.debian.org/~elphick/repository/

i don't find any such "dists/" directory that would make my
apt-get happy. i do find

        debian/
                stable/
                woody/
                        contrib/
                        installed/
                        main/
                        non-free/

but no "dists/" which my apt seems rather persistent about.
(there's probably some setting i can change, tho, right?)

suggestions (and blitheringly simple pointers i've overlooked)
are welcome. :)

In /etc/X11/Xwrapper.config:

    allowed_users=console

You should be able to manage this setting with:

    # dpkg-reconfigure xserver-common

man 5 Xwrapper.config for more information.

Peace.

I never created a separate /home partition -- made a 27G /. Decided last
night to clean up and rearrange drives. I've been using /home for all
kinds of storage -- mp3, ogg, local copy of hosted web site, etc. Ended
up having to move 22G of files and put /home on its own 40G drive.

Don't feel like re-partitioning so now I'm using the extra space in /
for things like /tmp and /var/cache/apt.

My current drive mess looks like this:

Filesystem    Type    Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/hdc7     ext3     27G  898M   25G   4% /
/dev/hdc3     ext3    9.2G  4.8G  4.0G  55% /debian
/dev/hdc1     ext3     19M  4.7M   13M  27% /boot
/dev/hdc5     ext3     14G  6.4G  6.7G  49% /usr
/dev/hdc6     ext3    4.6G  246M  4.2G   6% /var
/dev/sda1     ext3     17G   33M   17G   1% /scsi
/dev/hda2     ext3     28G   15G   12G  58% /mp3.mov
/dev/hdb1     ext3     37G   22G   14G  62% /home

hda is 40G, hdb is 30G, hdc is 60G, and sda is 18G. Still have some
re-arranging to do, just haven't decided what to move where. I like
having most of my free space in one area. With these drives I suppose I
should go to LVM -- does it allow free space to be concatenated across
physical drives?

Gotta figure out what the heck is sucking up /var too since I have
/var/cache/apt sitting elsewhere.

Also works fine with the blackdown debian packages. You might need to edit
/usr/bin/argouml to set which jvm to use if you have things like gij or kaffe

Hi to everyone.
I know that it isn't fair to send the first mail to a list imploring help...
but....

I installed Debian on my laptop and everything was perfect... So I decided to
install it on the office dsktop pc (it isn't mine so I can't decide which
kind of components to use) but I wasn't able to start X.
The pc uses a Hercules 3d Prophet 4500 64MB Ram graphic board.
I tried everything: writing to Hercules and SGS, installing drivers they
showed me (drivers are not certificated by Hercules and SGS), manually
configuring the XF86Config with values of Bus PCI... Nothing happened: "No
screen found"...
I could attach the log file but I don't hate you and I didn't want to bore
the list...

Simply: anyone did it with success and did he/she write me?

Hi,
   I know this is an old one but I can't find anything on Google. I have an
old S3 Aurora64V+ Videocard in my laptop and wish to use the vesafb to get
the lovely penguin and a 800x600 console. I'm pretty sure the card doesn't
support VESA 2.0 (only VESA 1.2) but I was told that there was a patch I
could apply to the kernel source prior to compilation that will sort this
out.

Is this true?

Where can I get the patch and some instruction on how to apply it?

Oh yes, I'd need a patch for Kernel version 2.4.20 if possible as that is
what I'm running at the moment. If it's any help the laptop I'm using is a
Compaq Armada 7350MT.

Cheers,
Kevin

It works for /home since it usually does not have any filename starting
with "." period in it.

For the the last line of the example, I would use a command line:

    # cp -pdR home-bak/. /home

or using equivalent and easy to remember "archive" option:

   # cp -a home-bak/. /home

This ensures that everything gets copied including file names starting
with period.

Cheers :)

Osamu
PS: without "/." after home-bak, /home/home-bak/is created.

How are you creating custom kernel packages with .changes files? I've
been unable to work out how to do it with kernel-package and make-kpkg.

OK -- dumb question that I can't remember the answer to and can't find
by googling.

How the heck do I time how long it takes a certain script to run?

I've searched the archives and google and apropos and apt-cache on all
kinds of variations of "time" (timing, timer, etc) and can't find
anything.

Do I need to write a 'date +%s' in to the beginning and end of the
script and do the math when it finishes?

Another dumb bash question later if I can't figure it out.

heya,

how about... "time"?  i think it outputs the timing information
to stderr after it has finished running the app.  it's funny
all your searching didn't show that up :)  for future reference,
"man -k keyword" is another good place to look.

3 alternatives spring to mind; either:
xhost +debian # as the original user
or:
export DISPLAY=localhost:0 # as root before running make xconfig
or even:
ssh -X root@localhost # instead of su
