debian boots into uefi shell

Today one of my linux servers did not boot. Instead there was a grub uefi shell. Typing the help command listed a bunch of commands in dark blue on a dark grey. Not easy to read. Trying to use the gui did not solve the problem. Resetting the config did also not help. Some forum posts said to create a symlink to the efi file. My issue was that /boot/efi is a separate partion due btrfs on the my system.

What did work was using the command line to add the efi again.

bcfg boot add 0 fs0:\EFI\debian\grubx64.efi "Debian"

However writing in english mode on a german style keyboard is often “times of wonder”. Use # ( hash) for the backslash and ä for the quotes. I still wonder why I have to use a backslash on a linux system…

Subversion (svn) 1.8 on Debian 7 wheezy

Just installed a brand new debian and than I can’t use my working copies cause the svn version is still 1.6.x
So an upgraded is required!


wget -O /tmp/wd-deb.gpg
apt-key add /tmp/wd-deb.gpg
rm /tmp/wd-deb.gpg
sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list

deb wheezy svn18

So now I can have fun again! Why not git? Cause the company repos are still in svn and I had some troubles with git-svn.

farbige man pages

Man pages sind nicht immer sehr übersichtlich. Die man pages etwas einzufärben hilft!

ans Ende der .bashrc

export LESS_TERMCAP_mb=$'\E[01;31m'
export LESS_TERMCAP_md=$'\E[01;31m'
export LESS_TERMCAP_me=$'\E[0m'
export LESS_TERMCAP_se=$'\E[0m'
export LESS_TERMCAP_so=$'\E[01;44;33m'
export LESS_TERMCAP_ue=$'\E[0m'
export LESS_TERMCAP_us=$'\E[01;32m'

schon sind die man pages in Farbe.
