I have recently installed LMDE (Linux Mint Debian Edition) onto my laptop but I can't isntall anything because it can't find the sources. I'm assuming I need to edit the /etc/apt/sources.list file but I'm not sure. And if so I don't know in what way I should edit the file.

Hello everyone! As some of you may know, Eclipse Luna appears to be broken for users of Kali Linux. There is a simple fix for that > Assuming that you have installed Eclipse Luna locate eclipse.ini `sudo nano eclipse.ini` add the following 2 lines before `--launcher.appendVmargs` --launcher.GTK_version 2 press `ctrl + x` then press `y` and finally press `Enter` That should fix it and you should be able to run eclipse. Now, next thing to do is we want to include Eclipse in Applications Menu for easier access or for dock users(like me on xfce) we can dock Eclipse. `sudo …

I have Windows 7 Ultimate installed, then installed most recent version of Debian on an unallocated 100GB partition on the primary drive (on a PC, not on a notebook). That all works without a problem. The problem is that I can not figure out how to change the boot menu to boot with either operating system. I downloaded ezBCD.exe and edited the boot menu to add the Debian os, but when I select it after rebooting I get the error that Windows cannot boot because the files are corrupt (there's lots of other info too that I have forgotten). When …

I've had several people ask me what I think the best, top, most user friendly, ultimate, and so on distribution is--so now I'm publishing my Top 10 Linux Distributions in reverse order of preference. Ease of installation, commercial support, community support, updates, administrative tools, stability, performance, and to a lesser extent--their ranking on [URL="http://www.distrowatch.com"]DistroWatch.com[/URL]. 10. [URL="http://www.novell.com"]SuSE[/URL] (SLED, [URL="http://www.opensuse.org"]OpenSuSE[/URL], etc.) - This bottom spot belongs to Novell's Linux offerings mostly due to the commercial version's lackluster performance and overall updatedness (if that's a word). SuSE Linux seems to be a bit behind the curve for updated hardware drivers. Though it's community-supported …

Hello ALL! I believe this has been posted/discussed in one way or another, but, again: I use Linux now quite long back. Started in late 90s with some ancient SuSE, breaking for couple of years, and then, again, probably with Ubuntu 5.10. Ubuntu 6.06 LTS was so good to me. We were "happily married" few years. But, I changed my laptop, and then, wanted to try something more recent. Tried some, at the time contemporary Ubuntu, and then I realized my first disappointment with this distribution: too short life cycle. So, I moved to Debian testing. Was happy, again... But, …

I was thinking of throwing out windows from a little laptop with an i386 processor and putting linux on, to make better use of the hardware. I'm not sure how the process works, seeing as there is no disk drive, and I'm not sure which distribution of linux would be a good fit for it. It has a few USB slots, of course, but no disk drive. I know that some linux distributions run from USB, but I don't know the details. Can someone fill me in on how to boot linux on there? I'm hoping to try it out …

At the time of when I installed Debian on my computer I also had 2 other windows restores / boot. I still have windows but I did another install of windows to clean my drives / get everything organized. When I formatted the old drive where the windows were installed Debian boot screen still has them for an option and then if I select then my computer will say missing bootmgr (because windows is not there anymore). I would mainly like to clean up the screen, how do I do this?

Do you consider yourself to be fairly familiar with the [URL="http://www.debian.org"]Debian[/URL] Linux distribution? I thought I was familiar with it enough to know its origin and history, how its name was derived and that Richard Stallman, the Father of the [URL="http://www.fsf.org"]Free Software[/URL] movement, uses a Debian derivative ([URL="http://www.gnewsense.org/"]gNewSense[/URL]) for his own [URL="http://www.lemote.com/"]personal computer[/URL].

hello, I've been dealing with ebtables recently. To test if it works at all I set policy to drop on chains: input, output and forward for one of the interfaces. However, it doesn't work as I can ping a host connected to that interface. I use Debian which may be a reason of the problem since I needed to install some packages that should be "built in" (for example syslog). Maybe I need to run some additional configuration for ebtables. I tried also iptables which work properly. However, for my task I need to use ebtables (MAC NAT). Do you …

It was exactly one year ago today that I published my original "[URL="http://www.daniweb.com/news/story219749.html"]The 10 Best Linux Distributions[/URL]" and it's time to put forth a new list for this year's best. Without looking at the old list, I've decided to compile this one from scratch. This 2009 list takes several factors into account for placement in the list: Community support, commercial support, software variety, update engine and distribution frequency. Even for old Linux salts, there are a few surprises on this list. For starters, Ubuntu is not number one. The problem with this list is that I don't hate any of …

I learned a little from my dalliances with Apple products. I learned a lot from PCs running DOS and Windows. I've learned the most about computers from Linux. However, productivity-wise, the order goes in reverse. The learning curve with Linux is at least twice as long compared to Windows and many times longer compared to Mac. If deep understanding of computer architecture, programming and operating systems is important to you, start with Linux and enjoy the others as curiosities or productivity tools. Back in 1986, when I first acquired (as a gift) a used [URL="http://www.apple.com"]Apple[/URL] IIe, I was thrilled. It …

From its [URL="http://www.debian.org"]Debian[/URL] roots to its commercially available support to its overwhelming popularity, [URL="http://www.ubuntu.com"]Ubuntu[/URL] is the ultimate Linux distribution. For me, Ubuntu became a significant force within the Linux community with its 2006 releases: 6.04 and 6.10. From April 2006, I've installed and used every new version and anticipate each new one the way a child anticipates toys on Christmas morning. But, have you ever wondered why is Ubuntu the ultimate Linux distribution? Why is it so popular? Why did Canonical choose Debian as its distribution template? And, why did Mark Shuttleworth believe in Linux so much that he chose …

At my last, best count, there were over 550 individual Linux distributions. From the most generic, flat installs of the most common distros to ultra-specialized, multimedia-oriented to the eye-popping, fancy ones--they're all there for the taking. I found ten distributions from among the 500 or so that I know about to spotlight these for some special feature or set of features that will dazzle you or entice you to try them for yourself. Read on and get ready to download. One word of caution: Some of these distributions are so clever and cool that, once you begin working with them, …

It's hard to convince Joe and Mary User to convert to Linux when the first things you hear from them are: "Where's my <insert stupid application here>?" "Why can't I just have <insert ridiculous thing here>?" or the ever-popular "This doesn't work like <insert overpriced application here>?" Honestly, it's enough to make me want to tell them to "just buy a Mac and stop calling me." Linux, after all, is for smart people and I really don't find any reason to "dumb it down" for the general population. Linux converts feel that they must proselytize everyone they know and have …

As reported [URL="http://www.daniweb.com/blogs/entry1490.html"]here[/URL] last week, three security flaws had been discovered that impacted upon the 2.6.x Kernel. A NULL-pointer dereference within netfilter when handling SCTP connections with unknown chunk types that could be exploited to crash the kernel; a cpuset_task_read() function in /kernel/cpuset.c which had an underflow error that could potentially be exploited in order to read the kernel memory; and a problem whereby the kernel itself mishandled seeds for random number generation, potentially weakening application security for those programs relying upon secure random number generation. Well according to the debian.org mailing list these have now been fixed with the …
