Really very short descriptions
Simple (potentially dangerous) scanner configuration: backend mustek_pp using saned:
/etc/sane.d/dll.conf should contain uncommented lines:
/etc/sane.d/net.conf has to contain:
/etc/sane.d/saned.conf should contain:
Add the following line in the /etc/inetd.conf
sane-port stream tcp nowait root.root /usr/sbin/tcpd /usr/sbin/saned
/etc/services has to contain the following line:
Debian lenny netinst using pendrive
Pendrive is seen as USB hard disk, so at first one has to find debian lenny
hard disk installation files.
Four files are needed for all the installation process:
First three filen can be found in the debian lenny hd-media directory,
the last one is netinst CD image prepared for creating bootable installation CD.
The critical point here: all four files have to have the same creation date,
and believe me: it is not easy to find such files in the debian web pages
and ftp servers.
Collect all four files in the separate directory of the linux computer,
put the USB pendrive into the USB socket, find the name of the special device
created by the system for pendrive: let it be /dev/sdb.
If the system wants to mount pendrive, when it is plugged in, press cancel.
As root enter the directory, where all four files exist, then execute the command:
zcat boot.img.gz > /dev/sdb
DOS partitionless bootable system is created on pendrive. Now it is necessary
to mount it somewhere in the file system: let the mount point will be /mnt/pen.
mount /dev/sdb /mnt/pen
Now copy the rest of files to pendrive:
cp initrd.gz vmlinuz debian-LennyBeta2-i386-netinst.iso /mnt/pen
and flush data to disks:
Now umount pendrive:
and you can install debian lenny on another computer.
Wireless network configuration preparation for WPA encoding
Description of the configuration for linux debian OS.
Output of the following command
wpa_passphrase myssid mywpapassword
copy to the file /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf.
Example network configuration file /etc/network/interfaces can look as follows:
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
up wpa_supplicant -i wlan0 -c /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
down killall wpa_supplicant
When done, restart your notebook.
