The following lines will describe a procedure on how to mimic Ubuntu's sudo privilege authorization system on Debian Linux. Sudo allows users to run programs with the authorization privileges of another user by supplying their own password for authentication.
If you have not done so yet, first install sudo package:
# apt-get install sudo
Once sudo is installed run:
which allows you to edit the content of /etc/sudoers file. Change the content of this file as show below:
root ALL=(ALL:ALL) ALL
%admin ALL=(ALL) ALL
%sudo ALL=(ALL:ALL) ALL
If you are looking for the netstat command and getting error:
bash: netstat: command not found
This simply means that the relevant package net-tools which includes netstat executable is not installed, thus missing. The package net-tools may not be installed on your system by default so you need to install it manually.
The package also includes aditional utilisties such as arp, ifconfig, netstat, rarp, nameif and route.
The typical question after we install a new package on our system is that what are the actual files ware installed and what is their location. This may be even less obvious if the final executable name intended to start your program has slightly different name than the package its self. In the following example we are going to install a dummy package hello using apt-get command:
# apt-get install hello
(Reading database ... 7528 files and directories currently installed.)
Preparing to unpack .../hello_2.9-2+deb8u1_amd64.deb ...
Unpacking hello (2.9-2+deb8u1) ...
Setting up hello (2.9-2+deb8u1) ...
This article will describe an installation of the ownCloud file sync and share server on Debian 8 Linux Jessie. This article does not assume any pre-installed packages. Using the commands below you can install ownCloud on the fresh installation of Debian 8 Linux Jessie. Furthermore, we will be using external sources to install the latest version of ownCloud suite.
Let's begin by inclusion of the ownCloud repository:
Now install the owncloud package which will also fetch all required prerequisites such as mysql-server or apache2 webserver:
# apt-get install owncloud
In the next step we are going to configure database. Let's enable database to start after reboot and start the database:
# systemctl enable mysql
# service mysql start
Once the MySQL( mariaDB ) is up and running, we need to create a new database called owncloud. All mysql commands below require administrator user name and password. Replace root user if your administration to access to mariaDB database is different:
# mysqladmin -u root -p create owncloud
Beautiful Soup is a Python package for parsing HTML and XML documents and it resides within a Debian package named python-bs4. However, python-bs4 package is a default package on Debian Linux system for Python 2 version. Therefore, if your intention is to use Python3 as a default environment you will need to also install Python3 and its corresponding version of BS4 python3-bs4. Let's start by python3 installation:
: When using apt-get or some other GUI package management application to install a new package on Ubuntu or Debian Linux the following error message appears:
W:Failed to fetch cdrom://Ubuntu 14.04 LTS _Trusty Tahr_ - Release amd64 (20140416)/dists/trusty/main/binary-amd64/Packages
Please use apt-cdrom to make this CD-ROM recognized by APT. apt-get update cannot be used to add new CD-ROMs
apt-cacher-ng is an alternative to a more robust apt proxy servers available such as squid-deb-proxy. If you are running a small home or office network look no further. It may lack some of the more advanced features but it can be configured in no time, that is, you are ready to go within minutes after initial installation.
Let's get started by configuring apt-cacher-ng server:
Author:Tobin Harding Task is to configure x86 bare metal machine as a docker host using Debian 8. You will need a network connection to the host to follow this guide. Also a connected keyboard and monitor.
Host machine. I will be using an optiplex 760 but any machine will do.
Internet connection. I will be using the net install Debian 8 image.
