[SOLVED] Updated Adobe Flash Plugin Not Working with any Applications, Debian Squeeze
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 29, 2011
I recently attempted to update the Flash plugin on my Debian Squeeze (6.0.1 - 6.0.2) installation. I went to the adobe site and followed the instructions that I found there. When the installation process/steps were finished, I went to the test page suggested by the website. The indication that I found there was that the plugin was correctly installed. When I went to my browser (I use opera as my primary Browser), none of the sites that used flash would work properly. I tried the same sites on Iceweasel and Epiphany, which yielded the same results.
I tried the installation procedure again, with no positive results. As of now, I cannot view videos site that worked perfectly well before all of this started, such as youtube. The adobe website test page still indicates the plugin was properly installed.
Can anyone tell me how to a) fix this problem, b) tell me what the problem really is so that I can avoid it in the future and possibly diagnose and repair the situation myself
[SOLVED] HP ProLiant DL380 + Debian Squeeze + firmwarebnx20.28all problem
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 2, 2011
I have a HP ProLiant DL380 server and I am trying to install Debian on it.
I had an error that said dhcp config failed at the installation and Debian could not find my NIC.
I've Googled it and found out that I need to install required Broadcom NIC drivers.
There are images that 3rd people have created but I don't want to use them as it will be a server.
Another way to install them is to download .deb package and install it from a removable media when asked.
So I went ahead and did an exper install mode and choose adding packages from a media so an option appeared for me to install stuff from removable media now.
Each time I choosed it, my flash drive's lights were blinking but then I was getting an error says this package can not be installet are you sure to instal non signed package.
I say yes at that stage but I still can not install and it says this is probably happening because of kernel version miss match.
I downloaded latest stable copy of debi

Installing GCC on Debian Squeeze
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 19, 2011
I'm a total Linux noob using Debian Squeeze 6.0.1a (on Virtualbox). I'm a C/C++ Programmer and i need to write, compile and execute programs. I've heard gcc is good for this. But for the life of me i can't figure out how to download and install it.
Please help guys. I'm not familiar with any of the Linux Commands and i have no prior Linux experience. A step by step instruction list would be much appreciated.
Please help guys.
GCC 4.5+ on Debian Squeeze
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 26, 2012
I've recently come back to Debian as a main Desktop distro. I'm running Squeeze with Linux and X from the Backports.
I was hoping GCC 4.5 or 4.6 would be in the Backports, but no such luck.
Question: what is the cleanest, least intrusive, and most elegant way to get one of these toolchains into Debian Squeeze?
Particularly, I mean to install to /usr/local/*, not to change the core glibc. In my eye, that's basically the same as not using Squeeze anymore.
Currently I am thinking just to build from source, but maybe there's something I've missed (hopefully.)

i have installed Debian squeeze on a machine that have no cd-rom and no network connection. after installation i decided to compile some c programs. unfortunately i saw that gcc is not installed! so i decided to install it by this command : 'apt-get install gcc' this command didn't work! and said that i should use it with '--fix-missing' so i entered : 'apt-get install gcc --fix-missing' this command needs you to put your cd in drive but i have installed my Debian by writing it's iso image to a usb flash with unetbootin. so i plugged my usb flash to keep on. but it say :

[SOLVED] Trouble installing latest Nvidia driver on Debian Squeeze
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 9, 2010
Hello all, I installed Debian Squeeze with no issues. I went to install latest Nvidia driver as done previously with Lenny. Used instructions that worked on lenny from "the trooper" http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...-linux-749929/
Downloaded th latest driver for my GeForce 7300 GS vidio card, driver package NVIDIA-Linux-x86-260.19.12.run
Used "method # 2 as described in HOW TO,as it worked perfectly in the past on Lenny. Only syntax I changed was instead of gdm I typed gdm3 as it appears that is the new name for gnome in Squeeze.
Did as folows
aptitude install module-assistant build-essential
m-a prepare, (took some time for all the copying and crunching to stop)
ctrl-alt-f1, logged in as root
cd /home/jon (where i put the driver)
now the trouble showed up, Unfortunatly I can only go off my memory. A question was asked stating that something did not match, it
[SOLVED] Updated glibc in Debian squeeze, now locked out
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 20, 2014
Back story: Was trying to install lsync on SRV-2 from source, since srv doesn't have internet access(i tried proxy but nothing either). Lsyncd install was successfull but when I tried to run a lsyncd command i would get "dependency libc6" or something like that. So downloaded and installed libc6-2.11.3-4. Then this when i try to ssh to it:
Debian/Squeeze fails to get DHCP address on startup
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 3, 2010
This one has been bugging me for some time now. The network interface (as defined in Debian's /etc/network/interfaces file) fails to obtain an IP address from my router. However dhclient br0 does.
I'm using br0 since I run a Windows XP virtual machine. The network/interface changes are from a Debian howto on setting up the tap interface.
As near as I can tell, the /etc/init.d/networking script basically calls /sbin/ifup -a. ifup is a binary.
My /etc/network/interfaces file is:
iface lo inet loopback
iface eth0 inet manual
iface br0 inet dhcp
pre-up /usr/sbin/tunctl -u garydale -t tap0
pre-up ifconfig tap0 up
bridge_ports all tap0
post-down ifconfig tap0 down
post-down tunctl -d tap0
When I run /etc/init.d/networking start I get:
Configuring network interfaces...Set 'tap0' persistent and owned by uid 1000
Waiting for br0 to get ready (MAXWAIT is 32 seconds).
