I get an error again:

HI, and thanks for your answer.
I use sudo lsblk -fm to identify what is the partition where i have install #!
I get this:
NAME FSTYPE LABEL MOUNTPOINT NAME SIZE OWNER GROUP MODE sda sda 698,7G root disk brw-rw---T ├─sda1 ntfs WINRE ├─sda1 650M root disk brw-rw---T ├─sda2 vfat ├─sda2 260M root disk brw-rw---T ├─sda3 ├─sda3 128M root disk brw-rw---T ├─sda4 ntfs Windows ├─sda4 650,8G root disk brw-rw---T ├─sda5 ext4 / ├─sda5 19,1G root disk brw-rw---T ├─sda6 swap [SWAP] ├─sda6 931M root disk brw-rw---T └─sda7 ntfs RECOVERY └─sda7 26,8G root disk brw-rw---T sr0 sr0 1024M root cdrom brw-rw---T
I guess that must be /dev/sda5, so i try with the command that you give me, but i have this error:
sudo grub-install /dev/sda5 && sudo update-grub
/usr/sbin/grub-setup: warn: Attempting to install GRUB to a partitionless disk or to a partition. This is a BAD idea.. /usr/sbin/grub-setup: warn: Embedding is not possible.

What i can do?
I come here looking for some help.

oh 8.( I think that Debian Jessie it's gonna help me.
Nop, in my bios i don't see nothing about Nvidia, or intel card.
I make something horrible, i want to delete all xorg files generated by Nvidia, and i delete something else, now my keyboard and mouse don't response. I have to reinstall #!.
I have no idea what i can do.
You should *read* the instructions and then follow them.
sudo aptitude install linux-headers-$(uname -r|sed 's,[^-]*-[^-]*-,,') sudo aptitude -t wheezy-backports -r install nvidia-kernel-dkms
This presumes you are using Debian wheezy (or #! Waldorf).
Now is probably a good time to read the bottom link in my signature...
EDIT: Run these and post the output of the second command:
sudo update-pciids lspci -knn|egrep -iA2 'vga|video'
Thanks for your help.
I follow the guide of Debian, i get install nvidia drivers, but when i restart the laptop, the x didn't start, then i uninstall all related to nvidia and i get back to the start.
I get this output:
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller : Intel Corporation Haswell-ULT Integrated Graphics Controller [8086:0a16] (rev 0b)
Subsystem: Hewlett-Packard Company Device [103c:228d]
00:03.0 Audio device : Intel Corporation Haswell-ULT HD Audio Controller [8086:0a0c] (rev 0b)
I'm pretty sure that i have a nvidia 840M, because on windows work fine.
Thanks very much!
I try to follow the guide of Debian wheezy, but i found two problems
1.- nvidia-detect don't detect my video card.
2.- When i follow the step to install the Version 340.65 (via wheezy-backports), i get an error:
sudo apt-get install -t wheezy-backports -r nvidia-kernel-dkms
E: Command line option 'r' [from -r] is not known.
I have no idea what i can do.
I bought a new laptop and have a nvidia 840M. I looking for the driver but i found solutions that i don't want.
I found two topics with
On both topics, there are explanation to install drivers from the page of nvidia, but i understand that if you install that driver and then you update you kernel, you have to install again the driver. So, my question is: How i can install nvidia driver and keep update it?
ps: i hope that you excuse me for my english.
Thanks unfugr !

I have been reading this post from Unia http://crunchbang.org/forums/viewtopic.php?id=10761
to know what services i can disable.
Thanks a lot to all !!
Thanks a lot to all for help me.
Use this to list all services:
# chkconfig --list
Disable unnecessary services with:
# chkconfig <name of service> off
For the graphical desktop, look in ~/.config/openbox/autostart and /etc/xdg/autostart for programs you can remove.
System say " bash: chkconfig: command not found "
@emek: You're English is good enough for me to understand; don't sweat it. If you want a list of all packages on your system, open up a terminal window and enter the following:
dpkg -l > <path>package-list_YYYYMMDD.txt
This will generate a text file containing all of the packages currently installed on your system. To see a list of loaded and running packages, use a program like htop, which is included with CrunchBang, or install gnome-system-monitor (which is nicer IMO) from the Debian repo.
I delete the <path> part and give a lot of program. The problem is the list don't show me the startup programs.
What i can do?
Before anything i like to say that my English is not very good, so i hope that you understand.
I noticed that my system it's become slow when start, so i want to know what programs (services o scripts) start with him.
When the system start i see the list of program but i can't rich to write down them because it's so fast.
I know that you can get a list of program in the autostart.sh file but there isn't the programs i looking for. For example i see something about bluetooth when the system start, but is not in that list.
How i can get those programs?
Thanks in advance

i have a lot of dictionary !
I back again looking for help.
I use dictionary on Iceweasel because there are times i write in English (like this one). But i'm a native Spanish speaker so i use that dictionary too.
The big ( and very stupid, but annoying ) bug is every time i pulse the secondary bottom on the mouse the list of word is increase. I hope you understand me.
A picture is better to understand what i mean:
I wrote stupid word just for be more obvious....
Do you know how i can fix this annoying bug?
Recently i want to install Steam too, i follow this guide and i install in a couple of minutes. There is the solution for the problem of Libc6 dependencies.
http://blog.desdelinux.net/instalar-ste … an-wheezy/
The guide is in Spanish, but is very simple to follow, just see the place where say "Solucionar el problema del Libc6"
Generally i don't comment no one topics (?) because I'm a beginner in linux, but i know that the method work. Good look
ps1: sorry if you don't understand to me, i don't speak English very good.
