NetworkingI had an issue with networking not working.
According to the debian page on network setup, changes below are not recommended (see below).
I fixed by editing/etc/network/interfaces
# Lines added from odoepner.wordpress.com
iface eth0 inet dhcp
Then ran as root
And network was working again.etc/init.d/networking start
This page explains how to put this network as a managed interface again:
But I shouldn't have done this.
According to the debian page on network setup: "Keep configuration of "
/etc/network/interfaces" as simple as in the following".
iface lo inet loopback
No desktop manager at startupI realised that there was no desktop manager at startup. I first followed answers to this question and edited /etc/inittab. But it is not needed, because the boot manager systemd doesn't look into that configuration file.
I spent some time reading about a systemd controversy in Debian and why it doesn't matter so much in the end.
For the moment I start the Gnome desktop from a terminal with the command:
It looks like not all package had been upgraded.
I ran as root
apt-get upgrade -f
The following packages will be upgraded:
Preparing to unpack .../live-tools_4.0.2-1_all.deb ...From Synaptic, I did a complete removal of the package live-tools.
dpkg-divert: error: rename involves overwriting `/usr/bin/uptime' with
different file `/usr/bin/uptime.orig.procps', not allowed
After that many configuration steps took place. Printer setup utility was working again. And now there only remains a bluetooth issue.
dpkg: error processing package gnome-bluetooth (--configure):
dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
Errors were encountered while processing:
Lyx upgraded to version 2.1.2At least Lyx was upgraded to version 2.1.2. I had to "reconfigure LyX with Tools→Reconfigure;".Then I could create documents with Lyx again. And the R integration worked as well.
Upgrade might not have been neededAfterwards, I realised that an upgrade might not have been needed:
"If you want to install a single package in Debian, you do not need to update the whole system. It can be done with three commands by inserting the repos for Testing and Unstable in /etc/apt/sources.list, fixing the distro you (mostly) wish by setting APT::Default-Release "stable" in /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/local, then doing aptitude install packagae_name/testing -t testing"
