 apt-cache showpkg cacti

says, in part:

 Dependencies: ... mysql-client (4 3.23.3)

So cacti is being removed because mysql-client is being removed and
replaced with mysql-client-4.1, which doesn't satisfy that dependency.
You have at least two options.

- Install cacti from source after it's removed

- Or "apt-get source cacti", edit its debian/control file so that it
 depends on mysql-client-4.1 and libmysqlclient14-dev instead of
 mysql-client >>3.23.3 and libmysqlclient-dev, and hope that
 dpkg-buildpackage doesn't complain when you build it.

With my experiances what you did is ok. I dont think that it matters what sources you got the kernel from. Now i might be wrong seeing how im kinds of new to debian but Im pretty sure its just like downloading your own kernel and installing it. So dont worry to much and also wait for other replies =)

I recently installed some software on my Debian server that required
me to add the unstable packages to my apt sources.list file, and then
I forgot to remove it.  Later I decided to upgrade my kernel-image,
and ended up going to 2.6.10-1.  Now that I have removed the unstable
sources, I see that 2.6.10 is no longer an option.  Did I just update
to the unstable version of the kernel?


Maybe, however, 2.6.10 might yet make it into sarge before it goes stable.

  If so, have I goofed up big
time? (I am running this on a server.)

Probably not, since you didn't report any big crashes, you may as well keep the latest.

  Finally, can I go back to an
earlier version of the kernel, and if so, do I need to?

Even though you can go back, I wouldn't bother if none of your critical packages require it.


Thanks.
J.Scott



IIRC, someone in an earlier posting last year said that Debian separated their kernel upgrades and distro upgrades by design. I doubt that you need to go back to an earlier version of the kernel which probably has all the latest fixes.

You could try chvt followed by the number of the console you want --
you have to be root to do this, however.

Take a look here:

Also check this link:

http://www.hpl.hp.com/personal/Jean_Tourrilhes/Linux/Wireless.html

I have an ACX100 card that works but is less than ideal for Linux. I've heard that PRISM chipsets are best for Linux since they have vendor support for Linux.

Hi

Can anyone tell me how to get sarge to load to a shell prompt, and I enter startx if I want to run X windows?

On redhat I used inittab run level 3 for shell and run level 5 for X windows.


If you're like me, and prefer to avoid mucking with /etc/rc[0-9].d
stuff, You could stick something like this at the top of your [xgk]dm
script:

[ $(runlevel |awk '{print $2}') -eq 2 ] && exit 0


if you _do_ like messing with that stuff, check out the update-rc.d utility. It's similar to
RedHat's chkconfig tool.

I have no problem believing that the dos fdisk is choking on deleting
the Linux partition. He's going to set up a Fat32 partition and a Reiser
partition (he wants Debian to have full access to the Windows partition
- doesn't care if Windows can access the Linux partition).

What utility(s) are best for this? He's going to need to run it from a
floppy; what should he put on the floppy so he will be able to boot /
run the utility?

Try booting Knoppix and using QTParted. It also has fdisk, and likely cfdisk as well.

My *guess* would be that since you didn't install KDE itself, k3b can't find things it needs. Did you install all the dependencies that k3b requires?

I'm using a Netgear WG511 with the prism54 chipset. The latest
firmware isn't really as stable as the one that preceded it, but at
the very least it's supported in vanilla kernels.

Another kit I'm using for wardriving purposes is the Senao 2511 (using
the prism2 chipset) - it's only 802.11b, but it's quite high powered
at 200mW, and thus can cover way farther than the average wireless
card. It's also Linux compatible.

Other cards you may want to check out: Senao 3045 (802.11b/g) and 5354
(802.11a/b/g) - both which use the Atheros chipset ( you can get this
running on Linux using the madwifi open source drivers), SMC 2835W
(also uses prism54 chipset), and the venerable Orinoco Gold using the
prism2 chipset.

   Thanks

If you're not using any exotic filesystems or hardware, you could use
the woody install CD instead. It's much better suited for rescue use, I
think.

I think you should be able to use the sarge CD as well, if that's all
you've got but its not quite as handy (or I just dont know how to use
it). I think there are 2 ways of doing it:

1. specify pass root=<devicenamehere> at the CD boot prompt. The catch
is that I think it has to be a devfs device name (i've not got it to
work, because i can never remember what the devicename should be), so if
you're not familiar with devfs, you may want to try option #2.

2. start up the installer in expert mode, and execute a shell when you
get a chance. then mount your root partition and chroot to it. you still
have to use devfs device names, but now you can look through /dev to
figure out which is the correct one.
hope that helps,
