location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 4, 2013
Pretty much as the title says. Just curious if there's a way to get KDE 4.10 on Debian 7 without having to dismantle the entire system and compile everything for a few hours. Any ideas?

real time kernel for Debian, WITHOUT compiling it yourself. Ubuntu repos?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 26, 2009
I am looking to install a Ubuntu Real time kernel for Debian and am looking for the one from Hardy (8.04), but cannot find the package it anywhere.
So I have read that Hardy does not have a rt kernel at all, that Ubuntu Studio has. Does anybody know the repositories for Studio 8.04 that I can add it temporary to Debian to get myself a real time kernel?
Compiling it myself is not an option, because I have done that and it is way too fiddly for my taste. I also don't get why I have to go to such great lenghts, when Ubuntu has it ready and finshed.
(the sad story is that although I love Debian, the kernel that they ship with it is surely meant for server use:
My Ubuntu eee 901 (1.6 ghz "small posterior" CPU) and shared graphics gets about 5 times the 3d Desktop performance than my Lenovo (2.4 ghz Dual Core "big posterior" CPU and I got a shining fast GFX card in that one. And yet... 3d Desktop is jerky as hell, Jackd (in audio production) is doing millio
Running Debian on Nexus 7 (native)
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 10, 2013
I have looked around online and can't find anyone talking about putting Debian on the Nexus 7. Of course we could use chroot to run Debian but I was hoping for a little more.
Since Canonical have started supporting Ubuntu on the device we have a full Linux kernel running. Now from within this is it possible to just debootstrap on to a new partition and run off of this? Without access to a device I don't know how well partition editing works with the device.
The second problem I can see coming up is X11. I read that the Ubuntu distro uses the android window system to put everything up on screen. I presume that there is no easy way to support X on the device. Does anyone know if there is a work-around for this?
[SOLVED] Grub Error with Mint Debian over Ubuntu 12.04 with Win7 Dual Boot Grub Error
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 28, 2013
There has been alot of speculation over the spyware included with Ubuntu which makes me uncomfortable to use it anymore.
I currently have a system with Win7 and Ubuntu 12.04
I have decided to install Linux Mint Debian Mate 32bit over the Ubuntu installation.
The process i assumed would be to install over Ubuntu and write a new Grub loader but unfortunately that has not seemed to work. If i re install Ubuntu the Grub is back with my Win7 installation aswell but when installing Mint i get a "Grub not Found" error.
Additionally while installing Mint they ask me to install the Bootloader which i have tried on
The partition layout is as follows:
sda1 = Win7 system partition
sda2 = Win7
sda3 = Ubuntu ( Which i am trying to overwrite with Linux)
Any suggestions would be highly appreciated,
If there is anything that i have missed or not explained please don't hesitate to let me know.
Ubuntu NIS Server / Debian NIS Client Wonky Ownership
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 21, 2013
I seem to have set up NIS server on Ubuntu and a NIS client on Debian that works (mostly). I can authenticate as users that exist on the Ubuntu server, on the Debian box, but NFS mounts seem to have really wonky owners.

[SOLVED] Switching from Ubuntu Server (12.04 LTE) to Debian.
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 6, 2013
Hi guys. I'm running a 64bit Ubuntu Server 12.04 LTE at home with apace2, ssh, rtorrent and storage disks encrypted with LUKS.
I'm thinking of switching to Debian stable and as far as i know every processes i use should work just fine since Ubuntu is based on Debian.
The question marks starts to appear when thinking of my storage solution. Will it work to install cryptsetup under debian and open my disks?
And are there any thing else i should consider before switching?
Debian 7 DHCP Server installation problem
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 2, 2013
Hey! I'm trying to install a DHCP service on Debian 7. As I have understood I have to install a package called "isc-dhcp-server." But when I try to install it in the terminal shows me the following error message:
"E: Unable to locate package isc-dhcp-server "
I checked the packages list available for Debian Wheezy and the package is on the list, however for some reason I am unable to find it. Also, I tried with Aptitude and Synaptic with no success. Does anyone know how I can fix this? Thanks a lot!
PS: I tried with dhcp3-server and couldn't find it either.
Ubuntu should be based on Debian Stable!
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 21, 2012
I like Ubuntu but I have only one wish. And that is that Ubuntu should be based on Debian Stable instead of what it is based on presently; Debian testing or unstable. I am saying that because an operating system representing Linux which is becoming one very popular OS alongside Windows and OS X should be more stable than these two Oses. Presently its less stable than these two and have many bugs. It should be stable!
debian testing vs debian stable with testing repositories?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 28, 2009
I am a ubuntu user but I want to go to the next level to use debian because what I heard of it, but I get confused to what to install on my computer do I install debian testing or debain stable with testing repositories.
- I want to use this system to the home use only.
- I want to use the newest packages because the stable packages is too old to use.
- What about using more than one repository i.e stable with testing with unstable at the same time (the same sourcelist)
- Is the testing and unstable sid packages good enough for the home use?
