Operating Systems and Porting / Re: [NEWS] Debian 11 is out
« on: August 17, 2021, 07:23:45 am »
I did a fresh install of Bullseye instead of updating my current 10.9.
As with other Debian flavors it is not really ready for prime time, but yes, it does install and run at least in the AST chip.
Some of the missing software that I use regularly has not reached the distro yet and will no doubt be along soon (ish).
For example, Midnight Commander and XFE. No hurry...10.9 is working fine.

On my T2 the stock 4.19.0-17 kernel does run on the ASPEED VGA display 1920x1080 no problems.
(Older monitor max resolution.)

However, when installing the system from scratch I first install only LXDE and then, when up and running,
I will run TASKSEL and install MATE. No GDM, not on the system.

My custom kernels will only run on the WX7100, they are a whole different ball of bees wax, , , Bees included. ::)

Actually the double quotes would only be needed if you modified the line in a Text Editor. However, doing it with Menuconfig is a better way.
You can try the Text editor later after you have a working kernel and wish to play around.  ;)

Go down to Additional X.509 keys for default system keyring.
Hit Enter.
Delete all the text, including the quotes, and Enter again.
Then EXIT, EXIT, EXIT and save the new configuration.

Please let us know how it works for you.

The libs and other ssl needed on your computer.


Also, using make menuconfig, you must change the CONFIG_SYSTEM_TRUSTED_KEYS= from "debian/certs/debian-uefi-certs.pem" to simply ""
# Certificates for signature checking

That is in the crypto section down near the bottom.

I noticed you are using the default desktop file manager for this problem.
May I suggest to you to install and try XFE and MC (Midnight Commander). Play with them for a while, especially for system and kernel work you might find them very handy.

Sometimes all you need is a bigger hammer.  :)

Yes, I have done this before.

There have been many requests for someway to rebuild or refresh /etc/fstab, but no luck from the distros. So this works IF you are careful.

In gparted, just be sure to copy the new uuid number of the partition you Clear. Then paste it into /etc/fstab replacing the old one.

I have another recommendation for you after this problem solved. Let me know when you are done.

Free advice (for what it's worth). This could fix the problem, or screw things up really bad.

The UUID of that partition in /dev/disk/by-uuid and /etc/fstab must be the same.

Open Gparted and select the proper swap partition. Then in the Partition Menu select swap-off and Apply that. Next, select the partition again and from the menu select Format and Cleared from the secondary menu.
Apply that. Now format the partition as Linux-swap, and apply. Then set swapon.

Select Information and Highlight the new uuid, you can use Ctrl + c to copy it  and paste it into a text editor.
As root open /etc/fstab with a text editor, cut the old uuid number from the file and paste the new number in it's place and save the file.

Reboot. It's okay to curse me if things went very badly.

open dnfdragora, click File, then select Repositories.

As you highlight each of the active repositories, the ones that are checkmarked, then look at the bottom section in 'Meta Link'. If any of them refer to a local disk then uncheck that selection.

The only disk UUID in there should be the ones for the running OS.

I wonder if you could have something active for a repository that is looking for a local disk or USB stick (?)

If is not in /etc/fstab I don't know how to delete it. Perhaps it was a USB disk that was not unmounted before removal(?) . I just don't know.

Cool  8)
Can't try just now, but will get to it soon.

Thank You.

My first question is....What disk partition is uuid/d6572c89 etc.. Is it a Fedora partition or is it on your Debian disk?

Next, if you look at /etc/fstab is that uuid/d657 etc. listed in that file?

You can use Gparted to find the uuid for all partitions on your system. Select the partition and then select Information in the Partition menu.

Google pulled the plug on Chromium.

There is no resume directory. Just a bunch of files in the /sys/power directory.
Yeah, check my avatar, that is how I felt trying to get it to work.
