sorry for the delay in answering , and yes "dd" is a standard unix utility found on all linux distros and other variants of *nix
including os x .
thus the command thats i have adapted for the article on from the usb installation guide here is your best shot .

@BSD people. I actually really like BSD. I find the FreeBSD documentation to be the best I've encountered anywhere in the FOSS world and I've even done cursory installations of PC-BSD and GhostBSD. The problem is alas my hardware.

Which hardware is not supported for you?

the ACPI support on my laptops thinkpad x120e and x201s
and if i disable ACPI whats the point of using it on a laptop

Did anyone succeeded to install CLI Companion? I searched all over the forum, but found nothing.
It's a app I used a lot when I was still with Ubuntu and still find it useful.

I used:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:clicompanion-devs/clicompanion-nightlies

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install clicompanion

As displayed in Launchpad, but gave me an error.

Any ideas? Thanks in advance. big_smile

#1 yes you made the mistake of considering debian ubuntu
and you tried to add a ppa to debian's sources.list
all the PPAs i have ever seen are designed to work with ubuntu they are simply not compatible with debian.
the reson for this is that ubuntu these days has a much different structure underneath , it is no longer a "debian based system"
its now just a "debian derived/like system" thus any software written for ubuntu specifically is not guaranteed to work on debian .

At your age, I felt the same way. Just keep going.

Basically, a man goes through a transitional stage where he passes from a safe phase where his parameters are defined for him and he is protected (i.e. by his family, by the education system etc.) to a difficult phase (a.k.a. "real life") where he is expected to make things happen but doesn't really know what or how yet. Without knowing the particulars of your life, it's quite normal that at 19 you don't feel very positive.

Just keep going. You can mess up and start again any number of times in the next ten years. Concentrate on making things happen and keeping your promises.

can mess up and start again in the next 10 years , you gotta be kidding me thats not an option
in my case , i'd rather commit suicide than fail.

Why ask people for their "fantasies" and then require these to be censored?

It's always going to be something like "I want to do Wendy at reception while her husband's away for the weekend - preferably while she's working" but people generally won't admit to it.

wanna hear the truth
i honestly don't give a hippo's anal dwelling dung eating pet rabbit abt how sick your fantasies are i would have never set a rule for the thread
but since this forum is not owned by me and i can't take responsibility for what people post here i did follow the social protocol/forum etiquette 
" a social family friendly place "

well to hell with this , i acknowledge my mistake , remove this thread and burn it on a pile of harvested dung and never talk of this again

and if any mod/admin feels ban me and make my life even worse than it is

welcome to #!
although there are fewer folks who leave FreeBSD for linux but guess you are one of the few  smile
and there are even fewer who have 100% hardware(mostly ACPI) support on their laptop.

#16 Re: Devel: CrunchBang 11 "Waldorf" » mac users show gratitude to steve macintyre for EFI support in debian » 2012-12-03 13:20:38


I also tried the multi-arch installer, once again my (4,1) MacBook boot just fine while the (2,1) MacBook just sat waiting for something it could boot.

if the multiarch image can't boot the MB(2,1) then i suggest filling a bug report for it , in the meantime if you could install wheezy debian live or waldorf
via a cd
by holding c at startup  and after installing to HD , boot to the hd via the grub menu from the cd  and then installing grub-efi on hd
or install refit from the repos (no i am not delusional it's in the wheezy repos)
then i believe that shall give you an independably booting system ?

I'm glad they're getting all this in there before the stable wheezy release. Kudos to Steve Macintyre for making this possible. Also, we should thank Matthew Garrett and numerous other devs who helped make UEFI on GNU/Linux possible at all.

agreed smile

Wait, the stock Wheezy installer can do an install on the Apple version of UEFI? As in, you don't need Bootcamp and Refit and all that?

YES SIR ,try wheezy beta 4 images  cool

and just to be clear : uefi is a newer standard introduced in late 2010 , EFI however is intel-apple's(just like thunderbolt) standard dating back to 2005.
but yes the wheezy installer works for both apple EFI and UEFI (not secure boot though ) thus the debian-cd team named it an EFI installer
not UEFI installer .

when i bought my mac i was hardly anything close to a *nixer
but once i started climbing the map in *nix land
i found myself deep down hills under os x 's core , and realised this just ain't my stuff
and switched to a zillion distros one after another and in that era  only 3 of them had grub-efi stock
1)*buntus 2)fedora 3)opensuse

i asked myself when will debian be ready to boot solely on its own with a stock config in a 'purist' kinda way on my mac
for 2 years my life was a mess without debian's "no bullshit , stability uncompromised " approach

at last when i heard steve macintyre was working on an EFI installer for wheezy , my heart skipped a beat
and then finally he uploaded the first unofficial EFI installer images on his dev branch , the experience was awesome smile

and then came wheezy beta 3 ..... then came beta 4 .....
and now wheezy is gonna go stable with 100% EFI support , it has happend tongue

a huge sentiment of gratitude to steve macintyre for making it happen , from the announcment at the deb conf. 2012 to the beta 4 images
released a few days back , one phraze can sum up my experience 'delighted in my soul' smile

#21 Off Topic / General Chat » from C to python , tell us your story » 2012-11-19 18:56:11

Replies: 15

cool  i recently switched from c to python as my primary programming language , why because it has a better approach to high level stuff
compared to c , being a c loyalist for 6 years i have grown accustomed to the preprocessor  and the headers and the makefiles  when building something.
but even when i am on the first step on the ladder to learn python , why is it so that every single sane brain cell of mine is urging me to learn python as fast as i could and leave c for the sake of making my life easier .

the above may not make sense to everyone but well i felt this is a place to talk abt tech that effects the mythical yet omnipresent
"common man "  O:)

i know what  he is talking about he has just put the "-9" the wrong way , what he really means is something  i can't say here without being banned , but i can give you a hint it was used as a reference for an  act  of silenceing someone in ancient rome .
