Re: Trouble with USB printer

Hi Chris,

I think you may try to print some document into file, normally .ps file. 
If it processes like a real printing job, I mean the printer also can 
not work, please check your printer's status: localhost:631. The printer 
may already stop - note the second button in CUP console. What you need 
is just starting the printer again.

Installing Etchy on fakeraid/BIOS raid

Dear Debian user,

I'm having trouble installing Etchy on a fakeraid/BIOS raid array, the 
installer doesn't seem to detect the array but instead it detects the 
separate SATA drives.

Any help will be appreciated.

Cheers,
John Merchant

Clonezilla allows you to pick the method you want it to use. One of
those methods is partimage. Others are dd, ntfsclone, and partclone.

Looking for a lazy gui

Hi Debianistas,

I recall stumbling upon a program in the Debian archive which was a simple 
GUI - a customisable row of buttons and text-boxes - and which could be 
hooked up to any script, as a shortcut to actually writing a gui (which i 
can't do).

It would be perfect for a Python program I want my non-CLI-using colleagues to 
be able to use; problem is, I can't remember what it's called.

Anyone out there remember?

Thanks,

John

Probably not exactly what you were looking for, but 
http://easygui.sourceforge.net/ might do what you want.

Also, the python-dialog package might do what you want.

Maintainer change?

network-manager-openvpn seems to be maintained by ubuntu, and the
contact for the debian pacckage is soren <at> ubuntu.com. However, I've
gotten no response to my bug-report + patch that I filed against it back
in may.

When I looked at the package in launchpad, it seemed that
soren <at> ubuntu.com is no longer the active maintainer of the package. Is
my only option now to file bugs against the ubuntu package rather than
the debian one? What can a user do when a package seems to be orphaned?

tar doesn't solve the problem of making a *real* copy of the HDD. It
only makes a backup of the files that a particular user can read.

I've always been using dd for this task, but ofcourse like someone
else mentioned, I always have a bootable livecd available to dd the
image back to the hdd.

At the moment your best bet would be to set the fakeraid card to JBOD and
simply use linux software raid. Most proven method.

There's experimental support however in Lenny for installing on fakeraid
using the dmraid driver. You start the lenny installer with

'install dmraid=true'

There's some info on: http://wiki.debian.org/DebianInstaller/SataRaid

I haven't tried it myself though, I simply use the JBOD / software raid
option.
