  • Coding on a Chromebook
    The terminal is actually a Debian terminal. Debian is a version (distribution) of Linux, so if you've used it or Ubuntu before, you'll be very familiar with the commands. - Source: dev.to / 4 months ago
  • Can I contribute to a redesign of the Debian website?
    Can't figure out debian.org? Then you probably won't figure out the distribution either. The website is perfectly fine, if you know how to read and think. They have mainly been focusing on making Debian stable, so it's more about reading manuals than expecting user-friendliness from it. There's loads of userfriendly-focused linux distributions out there. Source: 11 months ago

  • pi-hole + unbound = not resolving debian.org anymore
    I have exactly the same issue. A while ago I have set up pi-hole and unbound on a raspi, with pihole pointing to the local unbound and unbound using directly the root servers. It worked fine for a while but somehow stopped working for debian.org domains. Source: about 1 year ago
  • pi-hole + unbound = not resolving debian.org anymore
    For sure debian.org and all its subs are the most important ones because I can't install anything on my machine, I didn't check other specific domains because generally I can surf the web with no problems. I just noticed some troubles with gmail and iCloud mail accounts in my mail client but didn't investigate further, could be not related but got no idea at this point, we'll see once the main issue is solved...... Source: about 1 year ago
  • pi-hole + unbound = not resolving debian.org anymore
    I was about to assume a lot, so I'll ask first a question: it's just debian.org ? Source: about 1 year ago
  • pi-hole + unbound = not resolving debian.org anymore
    On a machine running a fresh debian11 I installed pi-hole following this guide https://docs.pi-hole.net/main/basic-install/ and everything was fine. I then installed also unbound because recursive dns is what I wanna achieve following this procedure https://docs.pi-hole.net/guides/dns/unbound/ but after the setup I can't resolve debian.org anymore, thus can't apt update/upgrade my same machine that is dns-ing 🤯.

  • I am installing Ubuntu

  • GCC missing in Ubuntu 22.10 for RISC-V 64-bit
    I'm using Ubuntu. I couldn't find an img file for Debian, at least not at debian.org ... Source: over 1 year ago
  • What Linux distro is best for RISC-V 64-bit emulators?
    Perusing around the debian.org website I got the impression that little effort has been put into keeping the Riscv64 port up to date. Source: about 1 year ago
  • Anyone using Debian Bookworm?
    If the default thing you get when blindly going to debian.org's front page still excludes the non-free-firmware and that's an ISO you have to search for, then the net result is the same. Source: over 1 year ago
  • DNS query on Debian only works if run from Windows first
    Yep, you read the title correctly. I have a Debian machine, where I'm running "dig debian.org", it failes with error "Connection to IP#53(IP) for debian.org failed: connection refused.". But if I then do "nslookup debian.org" from a Windows machine, then the dig command on Debian works. When running the first command on Debian that failes, I see in my DNS server (Pi-hole) that the request was actually successful.... Source: over 1 year ago
  • Help with finalizing NAS / Server build
    Well, this comes up a lot. It´s not a must. It is "...preferred". This is from the official debian.org wiki: ECC RAM is always preferred. ZFS makes use of checksum to ensure data integrity, which depends on the system memory being correct. This does not mean you should turn to other file systems when ECC memory is not possible, but it opens the door of failing to detect silent data corruption when the RAM generate...

  • I need to install debian 6 on an old machine I'm not sure which cd img to use.
    I need to install debian 6 on a old machine for historical purposes. So I went to debian.org and looked around. I found the full CD sets, DVDs, and all kinds of other isos. I'm not sure why there are like 50+ isos under full cds, same under dvds. Source: over 1 year ago
  • How would I install firmware in Debian (amdgpu and mediatek wifi) / Creating Home Directories
    I am using Debian testing which uses Linux 6.1.0-3 which should support the mt7922/mt7921e Wifi device. I have considered installing linux-firmware but I am hesitant because it is the last thing recommended on debian.org. I also thought about downloading the files manually for the wifi but worry about how it won't automatically update. Source: over 1 year ago
  • what is the most privacy-friendly linux distro with plasma (kde)?
    Debian (apt manager, .deb app packages), KDE can be selected from debian.org's netboot installer. Source: over 1 year ago

    I chose to use the Debian distribution for this Cluster. I used the Bittorrent download To obtain the DVD image. - Source: dev.to / over 1 year ago
