12 happy years of experience with DEBIAN starting from version 5 Sid until the recent 8.3 Jessie.
Before that done 6 years of system administration including a SCO UNIX Server and a couple of Windows Servers and dozens of workstations. The largest system was nearly 100 PC's, devices etc. at 3 locations with LAN and VPN's, Firewall and Phone via landline and VoIP.

I like to experiment and then share the experience. With sharing I may post silly stuff and get corrected - the way to learn something from anybody.

Have fun, insight and maybe share your knowledge with me.

Debian 9 on ACER E5-571

Posted 11-05-2017 at 04:45 PM by error_401 (LINUX mostly DEBIAN - hardware and software)

Installation of Debian 9 via CD-ROM with an image including firmware.

ACER Aspire E5-571 with dual Celeron and 4GB RAM.
Pre-installed Windows 8.1 fully patched OCT 2017.

I will give a short overview only. You have to search for the single steps explanation on the internet and how to do a specific task if you do not know how.

Largest loss of time is to prepare Windows 8.1 for the installation.

0. Backup your stuff

SONY XPERIA X Compact - data transfer

Posted 09-15-2017 at 08:29 AM by error_401 (LINUX mostly DEBIAN - hardware and software)
Updated 09-15-2017 at 08:31 AM by error_401

Got a new phone and ran into the usual trouble of how to get my pics and stuff on the phone to my computer.

Tried a couple of manual hacks which can work but are awkward such as mounting the device. The security on the new Android 6 + 7 messes up quite a bit of stuff there and all I want to do is transfer files back and forth. Pics from the phone to the computer some music to the phone.

KDE Connect works just great

DEBIAN - unable to start X Server

Posted 10-22-2016 at 05:21 AM by error_401 (LINUX mostly DEBIAN - hardware and software)

Sometimes it happens that x won't start

Symptoms:
- No graphical interface login (kdm) (gdm) do not start
- Terminals are available except for #7 which normally is the x Server's
- When trying to start the x-Server from a console logged in as normal user we get errors
- Error is: unable to start core services

It may be a problem with a full harddisk.
It seems that the syslog can under some circumstances become quite large (several...

Debian 9 - 64bit on ACER E5-573

Posted 08-14-2016 at 07:00 AM by error_401 (LINUX mostly DEBIAN - hardware and software)
Updated 11-05-2017 at 04:58 PM by error_401 (Updated for Debian 9)

This is another update on last years laptop with Debian 8.5 in 64bit with KDE
------------------------------------------------------------------------

As google has stopped support for the 32 bit version of chrome I have updated the known laptop with Debian 8.5. Just did a complete re-install from CD-ROM. Easier than to fumble with the 32bit and try to bring it to 64bit. At the same time we'll see what is working now.
