[SOLVED] Running KDE 4.x from Squeeze, Manual Install
- date: April 21, 2011
I have recently installed Debian Squeeze on my main machine at home. I used the default installation options, which meant gnome was installed as the display manager/GUI. Once I got the system up and running, I have attempted to install the latest KDE display manager/GUI. I executed the following commands:
$sudo apt-get install kde4
and then responded as required when asked if I really wanted to get and install the huge list of programs this involved.
When booting up in runlevel 3, I would log in, and then execute the following command:
$ sudo kdm
the screen would go blank and I would eventually get a KDE error message saying:
"Cannot open theme file @@@[email protected]
I would then be given only the option to press OK, which would dump me back out to the command line. I can get the GUI to start by executing "Startx", which doesn't require sudo to run I might add. The problem is that this command starts gnome. I would like to
Manual installs on Debian Squeeze
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 15, 2011
Hi, I've just installed debian-188.8.131.52-i386-netinst.iso (Debian Squeeze)
I have a working terminal, but no ethernet internet connection. I can connect to the internet, but only through an open hotspot from my neighbour (which is totally legal in my country ). Problem is, I think I have to install something called wireless-tools to use wifi and I've never done manual installs before.
What would I need to do or what would I have to read in order to do a manual install like this?
Thanks in advance.
How to get xdebug working on a manual compiled php 5.2 binary in debian squeeze
location: linuxexchange.com - date: July 6, 2011
I am exploring a new server setup using debian squeeze(6). From a former FeeBSD perspective I have to say I like the OS verry much. The problem however is that the default PHP version is 5.3. Fixing this was not hard, since this is a general issue. I used the following guide
and managed to compile a working 5.2.17 binary. This binary has allmost all functionality bundled except for Xdebug wich is vital for my development rig.
Now I have tried to manualy compile Xdebug from source but it doesn't work for my 5.2 binary. Even temporarily replacing the systems phpize yields the same result.
Is there a solution for this problem? Like i.e: bundling xdebug during the php compiling?
My sincere appologies if my English is lacking. Any insights are welcome!
I was using the correct version of phpize (the one for PHP 5.2). But I found out that I had to additionaly specify the
Stability comparision of Ubuntu 12.04 LTS with Debian 6 Squeeze!
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 10, 2012
I have read a lot about Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and most reviews say its extremely stable. I would like to know your opinions about this. Ubuntu 12.04 LTS is without doubt the first Ubuntu edition which is very stable and mostly bug free at release. This is what most reviews say. And if that is correct, give it a year and with updates from Canonical it could be as stable and bug free as Debian 6 is. This is what I think. What you think about this? Am I correct?

Windows XP far faster than Debian Squeeze (not a joke)
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 16, 2012
Hi, Long time ago was Linux the fastest Operating system, some 10 years ago. Nowadays Debian (kernel and apps) have become extremely compatible with hardware, but Linux is nowadays slower or as fast as Windows.
I have an hp compaq mini 700 now for testing, and it is crap. Debian is slow, and I prefer to use Windows XP. It works. Well Windows 95 was still at that time performant, better hardware support than Linux and apps were better than Linux (MS office suite for instance)...
Actually buy yourself a Mac if you like performances and elaborated applications. Well, Buy a Mac, it is simply better.
So to say, if no one really care about the outcome of Linux. It is how Linux risks to end up one day, to mediocrity like everythg around.
People sometime use crap devices, hardwares, ... vehicles, furnitures, ... simply because they haven't enough money to afford sthg better or have no choices.
Conclusion: Please think to make applications and kernel faster and li
Ubuntu 10.04=Debian Squeeze?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 14, 2010
I've read that Ubuntu 10.04 will be based on Debian testing branch. Debian Squeeze is now in testing state. Does that mean that Ubuntu 10.04 will have Debian Squeeze stable packages once Squeeze is out?
Is it foolish to dump Ubuntu for Squeeze?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 2, 2011
I've been using Linux for about 8 years now, including Red Hat, Debian, Fedora, Mandrake (now Mandriva), Libranet (R.I.P.), and an aborted foray into Gentoo (not my cup of tea).
A few years ago, I switched to Ubuntu, and now I use it everywhere. It runs my Mythtv dvr at home, powers my laptop, and my desktop at work. I'm now considering with some reluctance to return to Debian. I like the basic principles of Debian, and now don't feel I need the latest and greatest packages. However, Ubuntu has generally "just worked" in a desktop setting.
Anyone with Ubuntu experience tried Squeeze as a desktop OS yet? How does it compare to Ubuntu?
Ubuntu to Debian Squeeze > Express Set up
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 21, 2011
I am interested in converting my desktop from Ubuntu 10.10 to Debian 6 but I would like to
--ensure my key packages are included. I have been tweaking the build over time.
--correct device drivers are set up. ( I don't have extended time to just to get audio , codecs , 3d drivers etc running smooth)
I have converted back and forth between the "training wheels version" in the past based on Debian (Ubuntu 9.04 - 10.10 & LM Helena, julia) and would like to know if I can use the same steps to get hardware (video / audio specifically) and all my packages installed.
Using this process has given me a stable system with multimedia that works "out of the box".

ACER Aspire 5536 has half battery life and idles up to 80*c in Debian Squeeze
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 1, 2010
Hey devoted LQ members,
I've had a problem since my distro switch from Ubuntu to Debian ( squeeze ). My laptop quickly goes up to 65-75 degrees Celsius, idling there and sometimes going up to 80. For a desktop computer, this would be reasonable, but on a laptop that shows huge amount of power is being wasted.
In fact that is my second problem. Here my battery life is < 1.5 hours, while in Vista ( which I have not used except for downloading and burning my first Linux iso ) it goes to 3 or more. This is approximate life idling, not use.
My ACER Aspire was bought late last year new. It has an AMD Athlon 64 X2 which scales to full and half speed only, and an ATI Radeon HD 3200. The Radeon ( chipset? card? ) has been a pain for me since my install of Debian, and it is probably the problem in this case. The official closed-source FGLRX drivers only worked with Xorg 1.6, but I'm using 1.7 on Squeeze. At first I dealt with some other free drivers in the Debian repos ( which were
