I've just bought an ASUS N550JV notebook and wanted to install Debian Wheezy.
Right now, my worst concern is the touchscreen. I don't really care whether it works or not but it is really messing with the OS. I installed Debian stable which comes with the 3.2.57 kernel. The touchscreen didn't work at all and I didn't really care until I run dmesg.
I have a remote server which has some issues (Seem hardware related) which means that it logs KVM errors and then sometime later it becomes unresponsive and locked up. There is an often an early indication of it failing, in the dmesg log output, so I would like to know, is there a Debian utility which can send me (daily?) digests of the dmesg (/var/log/kern.log) output?
I leave my machine on most of the time, and only use the network connection occasionally to browse the web and such. I would like to limit exposure to scans and such as much as possible, so I would like to have my network connection be "on-demand"... turned on when I'm going to access the web, and then turn off after it is unused for a while.
It is a problem with the 'resolver' - translating URL's to IP numbers.So, I enabled my connection and tried to run cb-welcome again but no connection is foud (see the pic below):How did you enable your connection?Post output ofsudo grep -Ei 'network|dhc' /var/log/syslog | grep -E '^May 11'
Hello, I recently installed Statler 64-bit on a Lenovo x220 laptop. The system appears to be perfectly stable when I'm connected by cable to my work network, but as soon as I'm at home on my wifi network I experience random system freezes that require hard reboots. Looking at output from top and dmesg, it appears that the problem is wifi/wlan related.
I'm trying to add an old Pentium 4 to my network, and installed slackware 14.1 on it. It has two network interfaces: an ethernet controller (Via Rhine-III, module via_rhine) and an ancient mini-pci wifi (Intersil ISL3890, module prism54). I added static ip for the ethernet card to /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf in the eth0* variables, and expected to simply run wicd-client to set up the wireless.
