Re: Create an iso from a runing server

I think what you want is anything of the following 1) apt-get install live-build lb config --bootstrap copy --debian-installer live lb build You might want to create a working directory for that. It will take a bit of time until lb build is finished. 2) refractasnapshot http://distro.ibiblio.org/ref...

Re: fresh wheezy install. upgrade xfce and firefox?

it seemed quite safe to use experimental for iceweasel, so i did that yesterday. xfce i think i'll leave alone at 4.8. (although nadir has it working, i probably wouldn't be able to fix what i break. thanks though, nadir -- i do appreciate it) now it seems ive got quite the reading list, thanks to ...

Re: how to compile mruby for system-wide installation ?

user$ wnpp-check mruby mruby (ITP - #697835) The ITP, comment 20 http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=%23697835#20 gives a link: https://github.com/organizations/mruby-debian but it is "dead". Perhaps an email to the developer Nobuhiro Iwamatsu and asking what happened to the g...

Re: New Anti-Spam measures

I would have seen a reason for a thanks 1 and half a year ago.
In other words: When the spam problem first got out of hand, was mentioned in a thread, where possible solutions were proposed (and ignored, for said time).

nadir: did you just aptitude install -t experimental xfce4?
I used apt-get, but yes, that is all i did.

Mind you (seems obvious, but anyway): i did it this morning and hence can only say that it works so far.

Hi all. Thought this might be a good place to post this if anyone is interested.

Re: fresh wheezy install. upgrade xfce and firefox?

Ok, adding experimental repo worked in Virtualbox. I used refracta, which is based on Debian Wheezy (at the end of the day it _is_ Wheezy, slightly customized). As far i can tell right now it worked, i rebooted and started the desktop. Installation took a few minutes (rather seconds). If there is mo...

Re: fresh wheezy install. upgrade xfce and firefox?

I always try to keep things as simple as possible. As far it comes to mixing testing/unstable and experimental i do it like this: Add the repos for unstable and create a file /etc/apt/apt.conf with this content: APT::Default-Release testing; apt-get update Add the repo for experimental.

Re: [RESOLVED] Issues with Virtual Box in Wheezy?

I had a lot of "it is just me" and "this is weird" with virtuabox.
The last two years have been rather "stable", but nothing surprises me when it comes to virtualbox. I usually ignore it and just wait.

Re: fresh wheezy install. upgrade xfce and firefox?

i know enough about debian package management to understand that mixing repos is possible but probably not preferable. would it make things very unstable to do this? Mixing stable with anything but backports is not preferable. Not preferable translates to a simple answer: No. Else it's fine. Usuall...

Re: Aaron Swartz dead

It is unlikely that what history reports will be the entire truth either as most often the winner writes what we have in our history books, thus tainted by the view of the winner and why what they opposed was so bad. Unless history is reported by a non-partasent who knows and understands both sides...
