Community Rules
READ THIS BEFORE POSTING

First google the problem, if you cant find answer on other place, ask here in this community we will be glad to answer and help you.

1. Shares across multiple Communities or posts which belong in personal streams will be deleted as spam. Posts which have been shared to another community which contain information directly referencing Debian GNU/Linux are immune to this deletion.

2. Shares involving invites to other, not debian related, communities will be deleted.

3. All content that does not directly relate to Debian GNU/Linux or some of its direct derivatives will be rightfully deleted as spam and the account generating this will be banned upon continuing these posts, See rule 4 for Offtopic rules. Direct derivatives of Debian or distros which are directly derive from Debian and not some of its "children". Direct derivatives usually use regular Debian repositories with eventual addition of some third party repos and their own distro fixes. Example of direct derivatives are Crunchbang, Aptosid, Siduction and similar. Even to some point can be tolerated posts about SolydXK even if they have their own repos but certainly not Ubuntu nor Linux Mint. Ubuntu is different distro than debian it use its own repos and have many things done on different way than Debian. Linux mint too. So please refrain from spamming with Linux Mint and Ubuntu related posts. They have their own community, with whom we are not affiliated, so you can post there.

4. The Offtopic posts can be posted either in "General Discussion" or "Related Geek stuff" category and only those posts that loosely relate to Debian or Linux, but not things completely unrelated, or repeated from other communities or streams.

5. Shameless self promotion of content unrelated to Debian GNU/Linux on any way will be deleted as spam. Guides, problem-solving, requesting ideas or pretty much anything which is related to Debian/Gnu Linux itself will be allowed.

6. When naming packages, please only provide the package name or links relative to http://packages.debian.org/

7. English is most desirable language for posting, because most users in this community understand English and can easier help you if your posts are in English. Other languages are allowed, but please note that most of the users do not speak that other language well, and you will get less answers and slower solving of problem if you post in language different than English.

8. Please note that posting of posts with commands such as "rm -fr / --no-preserve-root", "dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sda bs=1M" and similar which may cause disastrous effect on user systems must be marked with "Do not try this at home" or "Do not do this if you dont know what it actually does"

9. All NSFW - Not Safe For Work content(Adult content) will be deleted as soon as it is posted in this community and users that post NSFW will be warned once and if continue to post such content banned.

10. Shares to this Announcements category will be deleted on sight by Moderators, you have been warned.

Wheezy still worth to install?

Hey guys, i'm thinking about to install Debian full-time.

But I'm not sure which one to choose, either Jessie or Wheezy, but jessie will be released soon. So is it still worth to choose Wheezy? 

Also, what will happen, when jessie is released, what things i need to do IF im on wheezy? Or do i just need to upgrade my system?

Thanks.

Use it since three days out of interest.

Easy to install, no hickups with codecs, libdvd and so on, an amazingly fast und just reliable Debian. Just start from the live medium, try a little bit, install. enjoy.

The desktop and the file manager is going to get upgrades (!) as the Ubuntu based Linux Mint Cinnamon-flavour will get its point releases.

BUT - and these are big buts - if you wanna install Gnome, you have to tinker with the sources and apt-pinning and lose Cinamon completly as it needs some older version of gnome apps and libs.

BUT this update system with five different levels decides for you which updates are responsible and needed, synaptic doesn't even have an update button - as long as you do not use another graphical package manager or the terminal, you won't get all the updates. :-(

Hello, I am new to debian and recently I read the book: "The Debian Administrator's Handbook" and  I have a question about compiling the kernel, I see many tutorial on intenet and  the people use make-kpkg from the kernel-package ... but the authors of the book use: make deb-pkg.
The use of make-kpkg to compile the kernel is decapreted ?

Thanks.

You don't need the firmware package if you have another firmware package installed from Debian. You really only need the linux-image package. The remaining packages are needed when installing to other machines where the source is not available (headers to compile modules, dbg to get debugging symbols).

+TestUser OnlineNL Thank you but i did not make it ..i wish i knew who did the art..I love the stability Debian gives me...this is a 10 year old computer..;-)
Cairo is so fun...i also have a quick tab on the right..It is great if you are working on line and need to get to a program like writer or shotwell.
I am think about about all the customizing with the admin tools and stuff i am doing ..I wonder if once I am done whether I could make a copy of all the settings minus the art ..I saw a program that let you do that...I am new to linux..

That feeling when you haven't updated your Linux distro for a few weeks, and then you do update and see this...

Only on Linux do you see new software being installed leading to a decrease in filesystem use :D

It's great to see programmers and devs are optimizing their applications. Keep up the great work!

Некоторая дополнительная настройка конфигурации TLP, даже позволяет немного поднять производительность при работе от сети (есть секция undervolting которая будет интересная для любителей разогнать процессор).

I'm very much a beginner and I'm having trouble configuring UFW to allow access from an IP range. I want to allow access from 192.168.1.1 - 192.168.1.254. I have a DNS server running on a raspberry pi and I'm getting a lot of traffic from 209.89.100.65 asking for neprostotak.ru

This is the command I'm using: sudo ufw allow from 192.168.1.1/24 to any port 53

Any help would be appreciated. I know I could put it behind my router's firewall, but I also want to allow other trusted IPs that I will add individually at a later time.

Thanks.

You should have two Dns-nameservers. One internal cashing name server where all your needed names and data are stored for your internal net. And one external where all your external data are delivered to external use.

I just noticed that my tab completion is broken in my Debian Wheezy.

Double tab on a blank command line does not return:
Display all XXXX possibilities? (y or n)

Which is the behavior I am familiar with. This is an issue that is new to me so I would appreciate it if anyone has any information about this that could shed some light on it all for me. Thank you.

Mine works if there is some text too, but it cannot double tab a blank line correctly. Which as far as I am concerned is broken. All it does is error beep. Every other copy of Linux I have run in the past 20 years has output the, "Display all XXXX possibilities? (y or n)" text. Which is the way it is supposed to work.

Debian seems to break that behavior somehow. It may be intentional. I do not know. All I know is I do not like it.

Hello to everybody. I have a little home server with "debian wheezy" and where I installed "mediatomb" as mediaserver. Everything works fine but I need a help.
I have two little children. From their bedroom's TV they can watch all the cartoons but also all the movies. Some of these movies should not be seen from child (due to sex, violence scenes). Let me say that they are not able to manage the TV's mediaplayers yet but, as you know, they can learn to do it very quickly. 
Unfortunately madiatomb does not allow to address a precise folder to a TV IP address.
I may need to make the database access "selective" so just some precise folders will be showed to the children bedroom's TV.
Is that possible?
Thanks in advance!
