Great, I didn't know about it, I've switched my sources.list to it. I've sometimes had problems with offline mirrors and had to switch to other mirrors, so this is great.

This seems to be working really well. cool Need to tweak the netinstall script a bit to accomodate it.

Re: Updated Waldorf "Testing" images: 20120924

I just encountered the "failed to execute login command" on a fresh install of the latest testing build...will update post if what appears to be a really simple fix works.

EDIT:  Seems part of the problem is there is no /etc/fstab created on a fresh install.  Again, I say "WTF?"  Frankly, I'm flabbergasted.

Hi Phil,

To the extent that a recent announcement from Google regarding Chrome 22 indicates support for an additional layered sandbox on top of seccomp, using secomp-BPF, which is part of Linux 3.5, will your CrunchBang 11 support that Linux kernel app feature?

Kindest Regards,

Welcome to the forums Deitrich!

Since #! 11 is based on Debian Wheezy, which is already in feature freeze, your question is more applicable for #! 12, which will be based on Debian Jessie in about 2 years. If Debian supports this feature, then #! probably will too. smile

@pvsage
only ran into this problem with manual partitioning, adding fstab entries solved it.
running cb-welcome now to see if that fixes permissions mounting external drives.

EDIT: Mounting problems weren't with external drives usb drives mount fine.
It's with drives in my hot swap backplane even when booting with drives in place.
I added drives to fstab and got fuse errors, installed disk-manager and set drives to mount rw all is good.
I thought disk-manager was only a gui for fstab.

Edit: for typo

Actually,
I was thinking more in terms of Phil patching 3.2 to add this important 'industrial' highly-secure feature.

Note  Canonical has already done a patch of 3.2 for Ubuntu 12.04 LTS:

http://forum.tribunnews.com/showthread. … -Pangolin)

"Added support seccomp filter, an interesting mechanism to restrict access to system calls for applications. Seccomp filter feature is to define rules of access to system calls in the BPF-representation (Berkley Packet Filter), an actively used for filtering network packets. BPF allows to implement rather complex access rules, for example, taking into account the arguments passed and returned. In the simplest case, the structure of the code is added to the list of valid system calls (ALLOW_SYSCALL) and reaction in case of a mismatch (eg, KILL_PROCESS). To determine the use of system calls should use the rule EXAMINE_SYSCALL. The program will automatically determine which system calls it needs, all other system calls are blocked, which allows you to limit the possibility of an attacker in the case of exploitation in protected by seccomp filter application. In addition to Ubuntu, the system seccomp filter will soon be integrated into the Chrome OS;"

Phil, is this something you would consider adding?  It would certainly lend itself to enhanced security and the perception your Distro is recognizing the importance of seccomp-BPF Mode 2 sandboxing technology.

Please review and advise.
Thank you!

That is it. I am surprised it has taken this long for anyone to notice. There is/was an issue with the build process whereby the build scripts would create an empty fstab file and then during the install, partman would not overwrite it. Doh. I have applied a fix to the scripts and I am preparing some new builds, which I will make available ASAP.

I did say this was testing release, right? roll

I'd say not being able to find /home is more than "nothing to worry about"; seems for more than a few people trying out the testing image, "these are the droids you're looking for". neutral

At least it's comforting to know that this is an upstream issue with the Debian Live installer.

I have the same problem only with the 32 bit i486 version (nonPAE).  I couldn't connect to wireless: fault read

not authorized to contol networking

I worked around it by searching the forums, found a previous thread similar.

sudo nm-connection-editor

with password "live" got me a working nm-applet and could add my network and password.

Then I plugged my usb external hard drive in, thunar sees it fine but when I try to click it:

failed to mount Elements: Not authorized.

It sure it handsome though.  I like the slightly changed look.  Looking forward to using it.

I have the same trouble in live session mode. I think it's because  X server is started twice (on tty7 and on tty8). You can switch to tty7 (CTRL + ALT + F7) and connect a network.

There is also bug with compton + xfce4-screenshooter. "Select a region" option makes screenshots dimmed.

Hello everybody.
New member, but not new user - thanks for a great debian openbox spin that is great out of the box.

Feedback from a fresh install of the current testing image:
1) First try: LVM and encryption with /home partition:
reboot : $NAME/LVM group not found, could not not boot or enter passphrase.  Could not mount anything to investigate.
2) Second try: LVM with /home partition:
reboot: failed to execute login command.  No user directory was created in /home, but user was.  No /etc/fstab, but /etc/lvm/lvm.conf is present.

Googling debian beta2 installer for wheezy there seem to be issues additionally with keyboards other than qwerty on reboot. I assuming these are all upstream problems, so sorry to be wasting bandwidth here.

Re: Updated Waldorf "Testing" images: 20120924

I've just gone through a standard install twice and both time I end up with a blank fstab. I install 64bit from a unetbootin'd image and run the post install script (kicking myself for not checking prescript). On a side note, while troubleshooting SLiM sessions I found I have no ~/.xsession. Talking in IRC it seemed useful to observe that some post install cleanup things did work, such as the copying in of skel, and the raising of the post-install script. I can be contacted on AIM at samineru if anyone would like to speak at a higher frequency than intermittent forum posts.

tl;dr, install, update, blank fstab, my aim is samineru but I'll be watching for replies here.

Using a GX260 with P4 2.4GHz and Atheros chipset wireless card, all works fine on #! August 06.
But yesterday's release 20120924 just gives an error message:

See this thread

http://crunchbanglinux.org/forums/topic … n-command/

basically, you're logging into recovery mode, creating a /home/user/ directory for yourself, then create an .xinitrc file.  In that file place in

exec openbox-session

That seems to have worked for not just myself, but others too.

Also after I posted from the live-test-#! last night I tried to shutdown but it wouldn't go through with it.  It just kind of sat there with the big red X in the top corner and nothing else happened.  I clicked the close-out X on the window and tried reboot and got the same thing.  I click log out and it just kind of "restarts".

@vicshrike   No Go on the "yes" solution.  But....

I read this post http://crunchbanglinux.org/forums/topic … es/page/2/

followed machinebacons suggestions which were

sudo blkid

then adding my external hard drive

machinebacon wrote:

sudo gedit /etc/fstab (or sudo geany /etc/fstab)
add this line to the end, including the empty line:

UUID=A60EFA090EF9D1F3  /media/xp ntfs-3g defaults 0 0

save and exit.
Next, sudo apt-get install ntfs-3g
sudo mkdir /media/xp
sudo mount -a

Your drive is now in /media/xp and can be accessed in both terminal and file manager. Do you want [some/the] other drives be auto-mounted too?

My hard drive didn't show up on the side panel of thunar but I could access it by navigating to /media/xp with thunar.  So now I can listen to music.

Re: Updated Waldorf "Testing" images: 20120924

@dkeg:  The thing is, when I booted from my Statler drive, the partition that was supposed to be mounted as /home by Waldorf already had a directory for /home/user.  Also, does your .xinitrc solution generate an /etc/fstab, or does the separate /home partition remain ignored?

No offense intended, but your workaround feels a lot like fixing a broken window by skinning it with plywood.

@Baconator & kernel:  Thanks for reminding me of `blkid`; this and the /etc/fstab from my Statler install should be all I need to get the latest Waldorf image up and running tomorrow morning.
