00:00<phorce1>I need to make the SATA drives in my system have persisten names (/dev/sdw, /dev/sdx, /dev/sdy, /dev/sdz) so they won't get changed around as I add regular scsi drives to the system
00:01<klys>phorce1: make sure they are detected before scsi then. may requre using a module for your scsi card
00:01|-|luyi [~xxluyi@] has joined #debian
00:02|-|evilgold_ [] has quit []
00:02<phorce1>klys: heh, I just jumped through hoops to make sure they are detected AFTER scsi. System won't boot if they get detected first because it assigns /dev/sda to the first one and my / is on /dev/sda which is one of the SCA drives.
00:02|-|evilgold_ [] has joined #debian
00:03<phorce1>klys: This is on a sparc system that has absolutely no idea that SATA exists until the Linux kernel takes over.
00:04<klys>phorce1: you thinking there may be some driver code you could write to reserve sda ?

00:05|-|streuner [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:06<phorce1>klys: Shouldn't need to. I just need to get my head wrapped around how udev rules work. Once I've created rules to alway name those drives (based on serial number or some such) with /dev/sdw to sdz then they will stay there. Any SCA drives added to the system will get properly assigned to sdd, sde, sdf, etc.
00:06<Branden>And there something I have to get to make TelNet work?
00:07<klys>phorce1: so it monitord dmesg and adds symlinks in dev according to your scripted rules?
00:08<phorce1>klys: right now the single SATA drive I have in for testing is assigned /sdd bacause I have 3 SCA drives plugged in and they are detected before it. If I plug in another SCA drive thatn the new drive will get /sdd and the SATA will get shifted to /sde --- and so on
00:08<phorce1>udev doesn't monitor dmesg
00:09<phorce1>klys: udev reads device info from /proc/sysfs (or something like that) and one can create rules based on that.
00:10<phorce1>But I need a "udev for dumies" guide because looking at he default rules files is giving me a headache
00:10|-|GmLB [] has joined #debian
00:10<Branden>Eeeeeek. My bot is listening on port 2222, but when I telnet that port, it brings me to the main login for debian. :S
00:11<klys>branden: telnet?
00:11<Branden>Its an eggdrop.
00:11<phorce1>I think I looked at that one
00:12<phorce1>yep, showed up in history when pasted to the browser
00:12<klys>branden: is the eggdrop configured to listen on that port instead of telnetd?
00:12<Branden>Its configured to listen on a port through telnet
00:12<klys>phorcel: not detailed enough?
00:12<dpkg>rumour has it, ude is uncommon desktop environment, or unix desktop environment
00:12<dpkg>udev is at , Linux 2.6's userspace equivalent of DevFS, or dependent upon a kernel >= 2.6.15 in testing and unstable, or if you're having read-only problems with udev, read this for the solution:
00:13<blarson>phorce1: Why don't you mount them by labels rather than dev names?
00:13|-|luyi [~xxluyi@] has quit []
00:13<klys>I can see how a chatscript attached to /var/log/messages would cut the cake
00:13<simonrvn>or by UUID ;)
00:14|-|ernesto [] has joined #debian
00:14<GmLB>I have a simple/stupid konqueror question- the search box isn't showing up in the browser, I thought it had one... is this something debian specific? Is tehre a way to get it to show up?
00:15<phorce1>blarson: like /dev/disk/by-id/ata-WDC_WD2500YS-01S-WD-WCANY1955037-part3 ?
00:16|-|lanceallott [] has joined #debian
00:16|-|f0rtune [] has joined #debian
00:17<phorce1>blarson: ease of use later mostly. This is a personal machine. I have 17 or 18 servers in the office that I handle (with fewer drives <grin>. On my machine it will be easier to remember that /dev/sdw is the first SATA drive
00:17|-|drone4four [] has joined #debian
00:17|-|madroach [] has joined #debian
00:17<f0rtune>what package would i need to play mp3's with amarok?
00:17<blarson>phorse1: A line from my /etc/fstab: LABEL=Archive /archive auto defaults 0 0
00:17<klys>GmLB: using kubuntu? try the real debian package
00:17<simonrvn>GmLB: it does, depends on the profile loaded (hint, webbrowser profile)
00:18<blarson>phorce1: Easier than names you assign when formatting the drives?
00:18<GmLB>klys, I am using real debian, testing
00:19<GmLB>simonrvn, I looked through them all, didn't see a search box in any of them?
00:19<klys>f0rtune: xmms2
00:19<simonrvn>top right...
00:20<phorce1>blarson: hmmm will that work using LVM though? I don't think it will because /dev/mapper has to be able to find the drives somehow to map the LVM stuff to its own labels. The number of drives possible in this machine kind of dictates use of LVM or I'll end upwith the symlink farm from hell.
00:21<klys>xmms2-plugin-mad, also, for an alternative MP3 decoder
00:23<manphiz>Is xmms2-plugin-cue still broken? last time I tried it was unable to change soundtrack at all, restart from the very beginning of the whole playback instead.
00:23<lanceallott> Support for XMMS visualization plugins is also compiled in (you need to
00:23<lanceallott> have xmms installed to be able to use it, though).
00:23<f0rtune>still wont work
00:24|-|f0rtune [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
00:25<blarson>phorce1: I don't think LVM minds devies being moved, as long as it can find them all.
00:25|-|lanceallott [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:29<phorce1>blarson: I think I may have the udev rules sinking after the third or fourth read of te link klys pointed me at again. It does make it sound VERY simple --- then I look at the existing rules and ---- ugh!
00:29<simonrvn>phorce1: udev rules are fricking messy-looking
00:30|-|hussan [] has joined #debian
00:31<blarson>phorce1: And udev gets seriously convfused by multiple etherenet addaptors with the same ethernet address. Which was what ethernet was designed for in the first place.
00:32|-|linac [~lin@] has joined #debian
00:32|-|hussan [] has quit []
00:33<phorce1>simonrvn: according to a simple rule like ''SERIAL=="SATA_WDC_WD2500YS-01_WD-WCANY1955037" NAME="sdw"'' should be all I need for each SATA drive (afterdetermining what to use wher I exampled "SERIAL").
00:34<phorce1>blarson: When I add the Intel dual gigabit NIC I'll probably blacklist all NICs in udev (that's actually very simple) and load them from /etc/modules
00:35|-|evilgold_ [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:37<klys>fugly is worse than saying `that'
00:37<phorce1>simonrvn: no, fugly will be when my other SCSI cable comes in and I have to rearrange ALL of the drives (including redefining the boot device in the Sparc PROM)
00:37<simonrvn>ugh, that is fugly =)
00:37<simonrvn>i really like scsi, but those cables...
00:38|-|nareshov [~nareshov@] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
00:39<phorce1>Right now he sca drives are on a motherboard buil it controller atached to a 4 port backplane. When the other cable gets here the 4 port backplane goes in the junk box and the sca drives get moved to a PCI dual controller attached to two 8-port backplanes. I'm gonna have to boot into rescue mode 2 or 3 times just to figure out which backplane is drives 0-7 and which is 8-15.
00:40[~]phorce1 's typing sucks worse than usual tonight.
00:40<simonrvn>oh yes, sca, sparc box, heh
00:40<simonrvn>funky little cable lead-in =)
00:40<simonrvn>80 pin thingy
00:42<phorce1>I think I found a deal on a box of 10 refurb 18G drives for USD $70 + shipping if they have any left. That would give me 13 of 16 possible slots filled plus the 4 SATA drives I've hacked into the bays left open by the removal of the 4 port backplane.

02:01<dpkg>it has been said that webmin is a lame web-based interface for unsafe system administration for Unix. Check it out at but, remember, dondelelcaro *hates* webmin.

02:25<dpkg>rumour has it, lenny is the codename for the next Debian release, currently testing. Lenny is the binoculars. ask me about <etch->lenny>
02:25<jherrera>Branden mysql-server package, you can get it through aptitude/apt-get (console based) or synaptic (graphical)
02:25<Branden>It says I already have it.
02:26<just_free_man>can i maintain debian package on non-debian based system?
02:26<phorce1>jherrera: hee needs to know the actual install directories so he can compile something that is not packaged
02:26<jherrera>Branden, so what's the problem?, check if it is running, do this in a term: ps -e | grep mysqld

02:27<Branden>25870 ? 00:00:00 mysqld
02:27<TBBle>Branden: If you're trying to compile mysql client-side code, you need libmysqlclient-dev (or the appropriate alternative).
02:27<phorce1>just_free_man: You may also want to contact with a long list of reasons that they should offer their software ina .deb package as well as any other format it is currently in.
02:27<Branden>Ohhhh. Ok. I'm getting that now.
02:27<blarson>just_free_man: But you should realy test on a debian sid system for things going in the debian repository.

06:20<Myon>that's why it says localhost
06:20<twb>Giving a machine the canonical name "desktop" is a really bad idea.
06:21<twb>It's bound to be repurposed at some point.

14:04<Alk3>hi i have a problem with dpkg right now. i set up apt pinning and made a larger cache for apt
14:04<Alk3>heres the error.
14:04<Alk3>how do i fix this?
14:04<Alk3>this is for Debian Etch on my laptop

14:07|-|bdusauso [] has quit [Quit: Ex-Chat]

14:09<chealer>Alk3: just 25 packages can't be such a long list. unless you mean you're unwilling to extract them...or you're not copy-pasting?
14:09<Alk3>not copy-pasting. in a framebuffer console :/
14:10<chealer>Alk3: not network connection?
14:10<deepred>I migrated 5 minutes ago from Ubuntu to Debian Etch 4.0, wondering where I could find a full repository list ( need to install nvidia drivers) whole net has been scanned for infos w/o fortune :|
14:10<chealer>!tell deepred about mirrors
14:11<Alk3>chealer: no i have a network connection. i just use a framebuffer console
14:11|-|freezombie [] has joined #debian
14:11<chealer>deepred: not that all mirrors mirror almost exactly the same thing. what you probably want is to enable more sections/components.
14:11<Alk3>chealer: i will tell you exactly what happened with apt
14:11<deepred>chealer, u got it, i need non-free and crontib and other stuffs :|
14:12<Alk3>i was setting up apt pinning and set the apt cache limit
14:12<Alk3>it was getting the MMap error
14:12<Alk3>/var/lib/dpkg/status was bad
14:12<chealer>Alk3: so can't you, say, collect the output in a file and transfer the file on the network to a machine where you have X?
14:12<Alk3>i backed that up and moved in from /var/backup/status.back.gz
14:13<Alk3>long story short i think something got corrupted
14:13|-|Patrick [] has joined #debian
14:13<Alk3>what file shows this for dpkg?
14:13<Alk3>i can figure it out
14:14<Alk3>the problem is i cant find anything about this in /english/ with google
14:14<Alk3>so i am not able to find solutions
14:15<Alk3>if i can rebuild the dpkg info file and the dpkg status file i should be set
14:15<chealer>Alk3: when do the errors appear?
14:15<Alk3>only when i install a new package
14:15<ifvoid>if the dpkg status file is really broken, then there's nothing that will really help to fix it
14:15<Alk3>apt-get update works fine
14:16|-|alvarezp [] has quit [Quit: Superkb 0.10 released:]
14:16<Alk3>well the status file is not so much the problem.. what i am trying to find out is where i look on my system to learn more about this error

16:15<baloo>Hmm. grep runs faster on small fonts
16:20<twb>baloo: that's an artifact.
16:20<twb>It takes time to draw each new screenful of text.
16:21<twb>That is probably slower than the time it takes grep to do its job, so overall the run is faster/slower as you change font size.

19:03<peterS>DarkStar__: if you mount all your filesystems (well, in particular / and /boot) onto some location like /target, then you might 'chroot /target dpkg-reconfigure linux-image-whatever' where linux-image-whatever is the name of the linux version on your filesystem
19:04<peterS>/target is the name used by debian-installer for the target system. it might not exist in your other live CD, you might use /mnt instead (or just 'mkdir' whatever you want to use)
19:04<DarkStar__>if i use damn small linux will thsi work?
19:04<peterS>I haven't tried DSL, so I have no idea. but the general theory should work with any live CD
19:05<DarkStar__>i was going to try to just rebuild the ramdisk. but, i will try your method
19:05<peterS>well, 'dpkg-reconfigure' on a kernel image package rebuilds the ramdisk. I find this easier to remember than the correct 'mkinitrd' invocation
19:05<DarkStar__>i have like forty live cds. if dsl does not work, i will try knoppix
19:06<peterS>the secret here is to mount your filesystems then 'chroot' into them. then it doesn't matter much what your host live CD is, so long as it's some linux kernel
19:06<DarkStar__>yeah. ok
19:06<peterS>you might need to mount /proc inside the chrooted system, too
19:06<DarkStar__>i will probably rebuild my custom live cd with some of these tools too
19:06<DarkStar__>it will make things easier

20:14|-|chaoticmass [] has joined #debian
20:15<Nemoder>I suppose it depends how much access you need, if you just have one server and client then either machine could put files in a directory they can both access
20:15<Nemoder>I don't know that much about nfs though
20:15<qandd>I have followed some howto's in the past, which say set one as server and one as client, but wondered whether that would allow 2 way access, I thought may need to have the server stuff installed, eg, nfs-kernel-server for that.

20:21<chaoticmass>Nemoder : I think I found the problem in about:plugins

20:22<Nemoder>that makes sense
20:22<chaoticmass>it lists each plugin as installed
20:22<chaoticmass>I didn't know swf-player was wrong (d'oh)

21:21<Reaper_NZ>64800 is 18, 57600 is 16.... Would it accept it and let me log out from the console, then shut it down WAY later... :) (Trying to avoid killing the machine when the power is scheduled to be off....)
21:22<mikegrb>Reaper_NZ: you can do 'echo shutdown -r now | at 6am tomorrow'
21:22<jair>Nemoder: the guide is assuming that I am on sid or a unstable system
21:22<mikegrb>or shutdown -h or whatever
21:22<Reaper_NZ>true.... mikegrb ....

21:28<Reaper_NZ>o.k. atq says it's in there.... and atd is now running... so as long as no other processes shut it down there shouldn't be an issue aye... ;P
