Install Debian using Knoppix
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 2, 2004
I have previosly posted a thread to this forum, for installing Debian via Netinstall. Wasn't able to connect to the web, so that was ruled out. However just got a knoppix cd also downloaded from the web, and it was able to get me on the web.
The 1000$ question is now, is it possible to do a Debian Install from this knoppix cd.. from scratch.. Just as if you did it from ex. sarge netinstall cd..?
And ofcourse how?
Install Debian onto Xubuntu installation
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 25, 2012
I'm really hoping there's an easy way to just install debian over my existing xubuntu installation. I don't want to deal with backing things up again, my external hard-disc is already almost full. I'm tired of continuously copying stuff, but I tried debian and like it way better than 'buntu. Is there any way I can simply make my ubuntu installation into debian but keep all my personal stuff? I think there should be, considering that ubuntu is just a debian derivative and should be compatible.
cairosetsourcergba() and gdkcolorparse() Fail in debian lenny
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 15, 2010
cairo_set_source_rgba() and gdk_color_parse() work ok in ubuntu 10.04 (gtk2.20...). Fail and crash in debian lenny (gtk2.12....) althougth compiling ok.
Some of my code:
static gboolean on_window_expose_event(GtkWidget *widget, GdkEventExpose *event, gpointer data)
cr = gdk_cairo_create(widget->window); // create cairo context
if(alpha_channel_support) // set source to RGB-Alpha
cairo_set_source_rgba(cr, 1.0, 1.0, 1.0, 0.0);
cairo_set_source_rgb(cr, 1.0, 1.0, 1.0); // set color RGB
cairo_set_operator(cr, CAIRO_OPERATOR_SOURCE); // set drawing compositing operator
// SOURCE -> replace destination
cairo_paint(cr); // paint source
void Set_transparent(GtkWidget *w)

Help using dpkg to build and install debian packages
- date: July 12, 2007
I need some help understanding how dpkg works. Specifically, I would like to know how the mechanism for checking debian package dependencies works. I'd like to know what essential files are needed for this.
I've built a few packages and tried to install them. Those with dependencies are failing to install for some reason.
Here is my scenario:
I built a binary libc6-i386.deb package on my Debian host and installed it on another host which has nothing but a bare Linux 126.96.36.199 kernel and a static busybox installed. I used the busybox 'dpkg' command to install the package. Everything went fine and the output of the 'dpkg -l' command is:
ii libc6-i386 2.3.6
After this, I built a busybox package to re-install the full busybox implementation on to my target host. This package is dependent on libc6-i386 as can be seen from the 'dpkg --info' command:
:~/packages$ dpkg --info busybox_1.6.0-1_i386

Like always, new hardwares are not supported by Debian.
if no cdrom, you can forget to install debian.
so how to hack that and mount an iso at the place, at /cdrom mount point?

As soon as I signed in a window opened and said; Authentication required by Wireless Network.
It showed my WEP and my passphrase.
I clicked on the connect button and when I did the icon turned green and began to spin but it did not connect.
I waited. Than the window opened up again "Authentication Required by Wireless Network" I saw the WEP and made sure the passphrase was correct. I clicked on connect and waited. The icon turned green and spun again but did not connect to the Internet. A small black window opened and said; "disconnect or disconnected"(one of those or the other), the network icon turned back into an icon of 2 small computers that sit side by side, in the upper right hand corner of my Gnome desktop.
I created a wireless profile a few days ago and that still shows up in the Wireless tab of "Network Connections". Do I need to delete that and enter my SSID and other info again, or is something else causing the no connect is

Attempt to Install Debian 6.0.5
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 31, 2012
Yesterday I attempted to install Debian; the install failed because there is something that I do not understand about the partition manager.
I am currently in a dual boot Windows XP : Ubuntu 10.04 UE
During the install I choose the options to manually install.
I choose the partition that I thought was Ubuntu for the swap.
Didn't know till today that swap in not recommended. I tried to undue the changes to the partition that I choose as the swap; but it did not work. It takes me to the screen of all partitions on my system when I choose Finish partitioning and write changes to disk. ( I'm going in circles)
I realize that I must choose a file for root / but the partition manager just takes me back to the screen where all partitions are listed and will not let me continue
No root file system is defined Please correct this from the partition menu
I know the fat 32 and ntfs are my Windows XP partitions.
What I don't know and am having difficulity determining is which one of t
