Re: raid6check missing?

Actually, it says the opposite: echo repair > /sys/block/mdX/md/sync_action Only valid for parity raids - this will also check the integrity of the data as it reads it, and rewrite a corrupt stripe. It will terminate immediately without doing anything if the array is degraded, as it cannot recalcula...

Re: raid6check missing?

Hi. Just a quick bump here.

I find it hard to believe that the benevolent maintainers at Debian would remove this utility without having something (better) to replace it... yet I cannot find any evidence of it. Surely they have something...

Anyone?

Thanks.

Re: raid6check missing?

Yes, I saw that was some time ago... what was that then etch? lenny? I figured they would have it back in by now. Since it isn't there, is there something else that should be used to scrub a RAID6? Even the contemporary docs on mdadm say not to echo into proc for RAID6.... they still say that radi6c...

raid6check missing?

Hi. I have installed my first buster OS. It includes a large raid 6 volume (md raid). I have mdadm installed, but I cannot find the raid6check utility anywhere on the system. I've been googling, and I've been reviewing the man pages, and searching the system. I cannot find it anywhere for Buster. It...

Re: undefined symbol: libssh2_scp_recv2

What does 'aptitude -s full-upgrade' show? It shows that everything is up to date. What I wound up doing is doing a 'dpkg -l |awk '{print $2}' and dumping that to a file. I then did a little ad-hoc script to step through each with an 'aptitude -s -y reinstall', and dumped that output to a file. I t...

Re: undefined symbol: libssh2_scp_recv2

Maybe not so well. Check to see everything got upgraded - seems you might have a version mismatch between curl and the required libraries. Yeah... maybe not so well after all... Weird thing is, at boot, all my startup scripts say "OK"... and many of them are definitely not OK. I've been b...

undefined symbol: libssh2_scp_recv2

Hi, I have updated from jessie to stretch today, and for the most part, it went pretty well. Since the upgrade, however, the one snag I was not able to fix was that of curl. When I run curl -V, I get: curl: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libcurl.so.4: undefined symbol: libssh2_scp_re...

Gnu Tar exclude appears to be broken in Stretch

Hi. For years I have been backing up systems using tar and the -X (or --exclude) options. Now that I have upgraded some systems to Stretch, I find that it no longer works -- on any of these systems. Normall I'd do something like this: tar -cpjvf /mnt/smbmountedfolder/mysystem.tar.bzw ./* -X /etc/xcl...

Re: Upgrade to Strech killed Systemd

is your /home on a different partition? If so then just install Stretch from scratch so to speak....Stretch scratch kinda sounds like an Ubuntu release... :lol: I find it difficult to fathom that your sources were not mangled prior to the upgrade attempt. It is rediculuosly easy to upgrade Debian (...

Upgrade to Strech killed Systemd

Hi. I just updated to stretch today (from Jessie). Now my system will not start key services. I have RT installed on this system (its primary function), and no one can log in. I'm getting weird systemd errors at login, but they are not verbose, and I cannot find anymore information on this. I just s...

Rewrite From: header in Exim4

Hi. I've been trying to get this to work for hours now, and no matter what I try, it seems that my re-write attempts using Exim4 are thwarted. First, I am operating under the assumption that this is done in the /etc/exim4/conf.d/rewrite/31_exim4-config_rewriting file (though I have also tried using ...

Re: Jessie broke my Xen hvm

OK... I noticed something. I had /usr/bin/qemu-x86_64... that isn't right... it exists, but that is not used to start the image. I'm supposed to use qemu-system-x86_64 . So, yes, it seems to start using just qemu. But now I have different error output: libxl: error: libxl_qmp.c:287:qmp_handle_error_...

I hear you. Switching to systemd is something I'd rather not do... but I'm trying :) It was true, Head_on_a_stick, it was set to graphical target, when I have no graphical environment set up on this system. So, I did as you suggested, but unfortunately, it didn't change anything. Here is what I did:...

Jessie broke my Xen hvm

On this server I have 4 other debian systems installed as paravitual instances, and two windows machines as hvm (windows server 2003 and windows 7). I don't care that much about the server...
