The Rules of Debian GNU/Linux and Universe and Everything related

First and foremost those who show disrespect to the Debian GNU/Linux founder who died because of idiocy of this World will be removed and banned without warning.

For all those to whom reading this rules and guidelines is too much to read and its TL;DR, they can consider leaving community or reading again the rules after being warned of breaking them.

1. Shares across multiple Communities, that mean posts that are spamed in many communities and are usually link-baits and click-baits to poster own blogs and 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 and its direct derivatives are immune to this deletion.

2. Shares containing information about Debian GNU/Linux derivatives including but not limited to CrunchBang, Mepis, LMDE, antiX, Devuan or similar are fine to post especially if you have a question to ask about them or do want to show some screenshot or introductory video. However it will be reconsidered by mods whether your post will be deleted or left in community if it is just something that is spamed across many communities.

3. Posts about how to do something in Ubuntu with unity or how to install something in Ubuntu which usually is not the same as in Debian GNU/Linux will be deleted probably its up to mods to decide but spaming this community with Ubuntu or mint how to videos or posts is good way to get you removed from community or get banned.

4. Those who post click-bait articles connected to their blogs which are not Debian GNU/Linux related will also get removed.
Its up to moderating team to decide whether your post is just a click-bait or a link to good article.

5. If you post link to an article about Debian GNU/Linux or how to do things in Debian or some other useful Linux related article don't forget to not repost your home stream post but post it directly.

6. Every post that do not have a at least few words in description about it will be removed or the poster will be warned to add description to its post. Write a few words in every post even if it is a link to a very good article.

7. Try to find the right category for your posts. If you can't find correct category post in General discussion category and mods will move it to appropriate category.
Try to read about categories post in Announcement category there it will be explained which category is for which sort of posts. So read that post them before posting your own posts.

8. Everything posted in spamcatch category except posts from moderators about community or Debian, category is called "Announcements reserved for moderators" will be removed and user will be removed and maybe banned from community. Spamcatch category is for the automated postings or so called bot posts which will spam multiple communities and posting in first category which is default.

9. Also do not post type of posts that are not related to Debian but Ubuntu which mention Debian just aside. Things are done quite differently now in this operating systems.

10. Shares involving invites to other communities, which are not Debian related or any sane Linux community related will be deleted.

11. Shameless self promotion of content unrelated to GNU/Debian Linux, or personal projects not done with Debian GNU/Linux that do not contribute to the community will be deleted as spam. Guides, problem-solving, requesting ideas or pretty much anything which is related to GNU/Debian Linux itself will be allowed. Also if you have any neat project made on Linux for example embedded ones like raspbian or things like that share them in "Linux related stuff" and your posts will be fine allowed.

12. When you write about some bug with some package, please provide link to bugtracker and or
If your package is instead still on Git or github you can post that link to.

13. When you write about your own problems with Debian please include any needed informations like which version of Debian you use, obtainable thru command (lsb_release -a), which kernel you use (uname -a), list of your pci devices(lspci -vknn), list of your usb devices if problem is related to USB(lsusb) etc and please use some sane paste like a or some other like, do not post on some users access Internet and googleplus thru TOR and censor some of the nodes.

14. Though Debian is now distribution focused also on beginners, then advanced users and system administrators, tech-savvy users, please be considerate to the new users who may not understand a joke and don't write things like "rm -rf --no-preserve-root" or "shred /dev/sda" or "dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sda" etc, except if user asked for such command
"Always write do not do this at home if you don't know what you are doing" to consider new users and to ensure the safety of new users.
If you do not follow this rule you may get kicked out of community even if you a long time knowledgeable admin.

15. Posts involving system administration and easing of doing of the same with ansible or vagrant or jenkins or puppet will be accepted and are actually wanted. We want more tech-savvy system admins out there and in here. Also posts about Xen, Qemu, KVM, Proxmox and such virtualization and emulation software will be accepted as long as they do mention Debian GNU/Linux, or even if they don't mention it, its ok as long as they are not a promotion of RHEL or SLES.

16. Links to other ISO images and builds built upon Debian GNU/Linux as a base will be accepted as long as they are derived from Debian GNU/Linux or debootstraped and are not from Mint or Ubuntu zone.
So please share your custom built Debian images or even vagrant and/or VM images your setups with QEMU and KVM or whatever related. Also do mention how your custom image is different from the original Debian, what new software you have put in or why is your custom ISO so neat and "better".

17. Do not paste program output and config files inline into posts or comments, all posts and comments with this mess will be deleted and users will be warned to use a paste tool for it.
Use pastebinit tool on debian you can simply install it with command:
apt install pastebinit
and then just run your desired command and pipe it into pastebinit.
Like:  example is lspci -vknn

lspci -vknn | pastebinit -b

This is debian community so usage of Debian pastebin is recommended you can use other too, but if you use Debian its logical to use Debian pastebin, and as I said earlier is not recommended.

18. For those really bad posts we have introduced "Wall of shame" category which will contain some of the examples what you shouldn't post. and the why you shouldn't post them in this community, also spam posts that are not Linux related I mean just a links to click-bait sites will be deleted because we don't want to clutter our users stream with non-related posts.

19. There are links in about Debian section which will lead to the Debian websites, forums and Debian IRC also there you have link about Debian Social contract and about some General informations about Debian and official debian blogs.

20. Those who break any of the rules multiple times will get removed from community and banned.

21. Category named Debian related security news and CVE's.actually is only for CVE related posts and news that involves CVE that are found in Debian.
Commenting is disabled for this post.

I am brand new to trying Debian. Installed MX17.1 Horizon. Very enjoyable experience, not as involved as Arch. Here is my result. I only have one thing to say about it. NICE!

Hi Members,
How to Install Latest KDE on Debian 9?
with which it works? Gdm?
Thanks so much for help

Hi Folks,

FYI the last update of Debian Testing has finally fixed the issues with Virtualbox and the current NVIDIA blob driver.


Hi Members,

I want to check the partition /usr with « fsck »
In the fstab ;
/usr was on /dev/sda7 du ring installation
UUID = a.......................... /usr Ext4. defaults 0 2

I kill the processes ;
fuser -k /root
If I kill all the processes ,the system stops.
I have to umount the partition;
mount -n -oremount, ro /dev/sda7
fsck /dev/sda7
mount -n -oremount,rw /dev/sda7
mount : /usr not mounted or bad option
I some cases useful info is found un syslog - try dmesg | tail or so
My Question is;
How to restart,the work is saved
Is it better to do?
Or do I need to edit the file fstab
to perform a « fsck » without active process
I beg your indulgence ,so I’m french.🤓

Thanks so much for helps
