Why headphones work with Ubuntu, Fedora and Scientific Linux but not Debian Wheezy?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 28, 2013
I am trying to figure out why my headphones work with Ubuntu 13.04, Fedora 18 and Scientific Linux 6.4 but not Debian Wheezy? With the others all sound is fully functional out of the box.
Basic speaker sound in Debian works although it is a little tinny.
I am trying to install on a late 2011 Apple Intel iMac 27 inch model. For every other distro other than Debian the headphones work outside the box. I would prefer to run Debian if possible.
Is it something in the Kernel? Would copying the .config from Ubuntu and using it to compile a new Debian Kernel work?
Building a Debian Wheezy/Ubuntu Precise Mirror using aptmirror
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 10, 2013
I'm trying to build a mirror of Debian Wheezy 7.0 and Ubuntu Precise 12.04.1 on my local area network and I am using apt-mirror to do all of the downloading. I've done the mandatory reading and research, but I'm having a problem with the configuration file of apt-mirror. when I run an apt-get update on the local client, apt-get responds with:
Debian wheezy is awesome :)

I've never really tried pure debian before, and definitely never considered using it as my main desktop operating system, but I recently gave the newly released wheezy a try and am loving it
It is a little trickier to install and setup than ubuntu (but not really that difficult at all, I found the installer to be straightforward enough and things worked reasonable well out of the box in debian. I did have to make a few tweaks that I don't need to do in ubuntu such as adding my user to the sudo group, adding myself to the lpadmin group, installing system-config-printer, and tweaking font rendering so it doesn't suck).
The thing that suprised me most was how well wheezy works for multimedia. Out of the box it played mp3, aac, and h.264, this is even better multimedia support than ubuntu has out of the box! I wish more distros would follow suit here.
The desktop is very stable and quick, it seems lighter than any other full gnome distros that I've used. The version of gnome it c

[SOLVED] NV17 and nouveau driver (2.6.39 wheezy) Dead X and console dimension incorrect
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 14, 2011
To whom it may concern:
System Debian wheezy, laptop.
Symptom After an kernel upgrade to 2.6.39, console dimension got wrong, (maybe 800x600 at the center of the screen) and X fails to kick in complaining that dri device is missing.
Solution Disable rivafb (kernel option)
I think nouveau driver used to depend on rivafb, if I remember correct....
As some other thread says, I had some trouble installing nvidia driver. For my purpose, nouveau is good enough.
Closing remark Happy Penguins!
NFS: "mount.nfs no such device" on Chromebook with Wheezy
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 14, 2013
I recently got a NAS setup, and would like to access it from my Chromebook (Acer c710 running Debian Wheezy 7.1).
I've installed: nfs-common nfs-kernel-server nfs4-acl-tools
Portmap doesn't install, and it appears to have been replaced in Wheezy with rpcbind?

LXer: Linux Top 3: Ubuntu Kaylin, Debian Wheezy and Linux Mint

Published at LXer:
In recent years, there has been no shortage of new Ubuntu derivatives to cater to different needs. Those have including different desktop editions (Kubuntu, Xubuntu, Lubuntu) and needs (ie. Ubuntu Studio Edition). Now Canonical, the lead sponsor behind Ubuntu is building a new version of Ubuntu specifically for China. The new version is call Kylin and is being developed in partnership with government agencies in China. Kylin will have Chinese language input and localization and will also have a Chinese calendar. The first version of Kylin will coincide with the Ubuntu 13.04 release set to debut in April. Moving beyond the initial release, Canonical plans on providing further specific Chinese integrations including the use of Baidu maps and Taobao shopping.
13.04 samba, raspberry pi wheezy samba colliding?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 2, 2013
I have a little zbox with ubuntu 13.04 on it that I'm using as a small desktop and Samba server. It has been working fine.
I also have (1 that I'm working with) a Raspberry Pi running Wheezy (debain based) that will be a media center and have Samba running as both a client and server as well.
By itself, the zbox works fine as the samba server. When I bring up Samba on the Raspberry Pi, It's like the 2 "collide" or something as I end up with both being screwed up (get can't accees share just trying local lookup on the zbox). I was wondering if there is a problem with having 2 linux samba servers and no Windows boxes on the same subnet - something with name resolution or the like.
I'm just a little stuck at this point. I want them both to be servers so that the Pi can (1) see media files on the zbox & (2) so that other PC's can read/write media files on the Pi.
I hope that explains enough for someone to consider helping me.
ubuntu 13.04 64bit XBMC, Raspberry Pi Wheezy XMBC
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 23, 2013
I wonder if someone has run into this same thing and might be able to provide some insight:
On my little zbox running 13.04 64-bit, XBMC shows the background image and DVD cover image for a particular movie (Harry and the Hendersons, but it really shouldn't matter). I copied everything to another external drive for (1) backup and (2) test the Pi.
This same exact folder structure, names, files, etc., when on the Pi, does not show the background image or the DVD cover for the same movie.
Both are XBMC Frodo 12.2, and using the same scapers.
[SOLVED] Debian Wheezy freezes
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 17, 2013
I'm experiencing very annoying problem. The shell just hangs randomly. It has happened for months when wheezy was still in testing. But not as frequently as now. On saturday I had like 3 freezes. But that was sid. Yesterday I have updated sid and some things got screwed. I've returned to Wheezy. Now when it is stable I really didn't expect gnome shell to hang 2 times within 15 minutes time. I like gnome shell but I can't stand the freezes. I noticed it freezes when I'm watching something on youtube. Maybe it's flash fault. Do such freezes occur to you?
My comp is definately not to weak to handle this os.
