Debian 9.1 (stretch) with proprietary nvidia-driver and uvesafb

So it’s 2017 and I can’t believe I had to get my hands this dirty to put this to work, but it finally works: I have high resolution text console while using the proprietary nvidia-driver! Don’t get me wrong: the steps are easy, but the mere fact I had to do this is what annoys me. Why don’t the proprietary nvidia-drivers deliver a beautiful framebuffer console out-of-the-box like nouveau does? Anyway…

If you got to this post, chances are you have done your fair share of searches, tried different suggestions from many different Forums and/or Stack Overflow answers but is still strugling. Also, if you know what this post is related to, chances are you actually need/want a framebuffer console, so I assume you can get around the console and editing system files. That being said, I’ll keep this tutorial very straightforward and not get into many details explaining how to do basic stuff.

Well let’s get to it, then!

Install Skype on Debian Stretch (next-stable/testing)

First and foremost: This post only makes sense if you’re trying to install Skype (multiarch) on Debian Stretch while it’s on the testing branch. This is true as of February 3rd 2016.

Note: this tutorial assumes you are familiar with the terminal and already have multiarch enabled for your system.

Criar pendrive de instalador do MacOS X a partir do Linux

Dica simples, mas valiosa. Assumindo que seu pendrive está em /dev/sdb:

1) Fazer backup do conteúdo do pendrive e depois zerar a tabela de partições dele (recomendo o gparted se estiver em modo gráfico ou fdisk se estiver em modo texto).

2) Instalar pacote “dmg2img

sudo apt-get install dmg2img

3) Executar o seguinte comando para fazer a conversão do DMG para ISO e automaticamente criar o pendrive (sem ter que fazer em duas etapas):

sudo dmg2img -v -i /path/to/image_file.dmg -o /dev/sdb
