Debian Ubuntu: CEWE Fotobuch installieren unter 64bit Linux

Problem: Cewe Fotobuch Software wurde für 32bit Linux geschrieben lässt sich daher nach der Installation wegen fehlender Libraries nicht starten.


  • Download der Software von
  • Konsole öffnen (ähnlich Windows Dos Fenster – keine Mausgesteuerte Installation)
  • die Datei Namens setup_Mein_CEWE_Fotobuch.tgz nach /tmp kopieren
  • entpacken des Archives (.tgz)
  • starten des Perlscripts
  • nachträgliche Installation der 32bit Framedateien (Libraries)


sudo cp setup_Mein_CEWE_Fotobuch.tgz /tmp
sudo tar -xvzf setup_Mein_CEWE_Fotobuch.tgz
sudo ./
sudo apt-get install ia32-libs-gtk
sudo apt-get install ia32-libs lib32gomp1

Unter Suse Linux 64bit sollte das gleiche Problem bestehen, hier mit Yast die 32bit Libraries suchen und installieren.

..und klappt..



Debian Linux Wheezy: Partitioning 3TB Hard Drives with GPT Table (fdisk show 2TB max.)

Problem: On Debian Linux the brand new 3TB SATA Drives only seen as 2TB Drives by fdisk

Background: GPT Partition Table must be used as new technology


  • install “gdisk” the GPT Tool for big Drives with #sudo aptitude install gdisk
  • clean the new Drives first Table Headers with #sudo dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdb count=1 bs=512
  • run now #sudo sgdisk /dev/sdb
  • Command is “sgdisk” not “gdisk” = its Paket Name
  • same on other Linux/BSD Systems on Windows use Paragon Tools

Hardware Bugs: Seagate ST3000DM001 9YN166 3TB Drives Click Noise


  • My brand new Seagate Drives running as Raid1 with two Seagate ST3000DM001-9YN166 on Debian clicks sometimes.


  • Noise is made by parking heads and spin control by the firmware, often seen on Home NAS
  • (Update 2017: The Firmware of this Generation is buggy, Fault rate 70% after 2 Years)


  • go to Manufacter Site and download the firmware update iso
  • burn it to CD
  • reboot the PC on this CD, using Freedos and the Update tool
  • update the firmware and reboot to Linux again
  • edit with sudo vi /etc/rc.conf

/sbin/hdparm -W 0 /dev/sda #Systemdrive disable Cache against Powerloss!
/sbin/hdparm -W 0 /dev/sdb #Raiddrive 1 disable Cache against Powerloss!
/sbin/hdparm -W 0 /dev/sdc #Raiddrive 2 disable Cache against Powerloss!
/sbin/hdparm -S 0 /dev/sdb #Disable Spindown/Poweroff forced!
/sbin/hdparm -S 0 /dev/sdc #Disable Spindown/Poweroff forced!

  • This Parameters should be used on Servers, Performance need running drives not sleeping drives!
  • Every Spindown/Spinup breaks the life of the drives!
