00:37<jm_>agus: kernel sources are part of regular Debian repositories
00:37|-|jimx [~jimx@] has left #debian []
00:39<agus>jm_: the kernel-images have the source inside?
00:40<dpkg>it has been said that kernel-image is what you get when you use make-kpkg (from package "kernel-package"), or ask me about "kp" for details Or 'apt-cache search kernel-image'
00:40<Supaplex>agus: no, image is the binary
00:40<GhostlyDeath_>what kernel does sid have?

00:41<Supaplex>petemc, the-dude I know why dhcp appears slow. it's a bridging interface, and it takes some 32 seconds to ready-up.
00:42<agus>this is my repository serch
00:42<agus>DeLaCepa:/home/agus# aptitude search kernel-source
00:42<agus>p cpad-kernel-source - source for the Synaptics cPad driver

00:42<agus>I'm really sorry to boder, but i can't get it
00:42<gsimmons>agus: You'd want to search on "linux-source".
00:43<agus>there it is
00:43<agus>thank you all, very very
00:44<agus>and again, really sorry
00:44<jm_>agus: aptitude search is dumb, you should use apt-cache search or use extended patterns for aptitude (and use something like "kernel source")
00:44<Supaplex>no problem. that'll be $75
00:44|-|martijn [] has joined #debian
00:45|-|kmil0 [~kmilo@] has joined #debian
00:45<jm_>agus: or simply apt-get source foo if you are looking for sources of package foo (newer versions of aptitude also support this I think, but not in Etch)

00:47<agus>one time i ask for the diference between apt-cache and aptitud but no one say anithing, rare question I asked i supouse
00:47<dondelelcaro>agus: there are lots of difference.
00:48<GhostlyDeath_>just ask dpkg

00:49<dpkg>I am a blootbot. For more info see <blootbot>
00:49<Supaplex>apt-get source apt-cache aptitude ; diff -uNr */ ;)
00:49<dpkg>rumour has it, blootbot is a severely mutiliated infobot (right now, the code doesn't even look like infobot any more), by xk. Homepage at Archive is at See blootbot debs now in debian, or if you didn't already know this you probably don't want to run a blootbot unless you're very good with perl, or, or the latest svn has pgsql support.

00:51[~]Supaplex steps on station11's nettube
00:51<GhostlyDeath_>Noone has still told me what kernel sid uses
00:51<dpkg> - here you can search for debian packages and their contents. Pretty Damned Obvious, isn't it?, or, in some contexts. Maybe even
00:52<streuner>check out pdo then
00:52<Supaplex>GhostlyDeath_: on a good day, sid users get fishing poles. enjoy
00:52<hachi>source package php5 in lenny claims it should build a libapache-mod-php5, but there isn't one in debian. Anyone know what happened there?
00:53<agus>GhostlyDeath_: who me?
00:53<hachi>all the packages listed there are up to date, except libapache-mod-php5, which is an older version

00:54<hachi>nice... they're dropping apache1.3 support!
00:55<GhostlyDeath_>those klingons are always up to something!
00:55<hachi>nobody uses that!
00:55<streuner>GhostlyDeath_: you should read sid faq, its mention some basic lessons in order for somebody who want run unstable

01:11|-|tmg1 [] has joined #debian
01:12<tmg1>if a user has 'connected' a ftp connection
01:12<tmg1>how exactly far in establishing a connection is that?
01:12<tmg1>that comes before authentication right?
01:12<lubos>guys when I remove /vae/cache/apt/[pkgcache.bin,srcpkgcache.bin] will they get re-acreated after apt-get update ? thank you
01:13<Supaplex>lubos: don't go deleting stuff like that by hand. use apt-cache clean
01:13<Supaplex>unless, you're troubleshooting something, and you're prepared to fix your breakage.
01:13<lubos>Supaplex: I know :-( nut that doeas not apply for those files..
01:14<lubos>Supaplex: not troubleshouting nut trying to remove everrything which is not really needed ..any tips? :-)
01:15<Supaplex>yea, I suggested apt-cache clean for starters. are you that crampt for disk space?
01:15<lubos>Supaplex: yes I'm...
01:16<Supaplex>running it once in a while is a good thing (wipes out the debs that were downloaded), but parnoia will just drive you mad.
01:16<lubos>I need it to make is small as possible..
01:16<Supaplex>to what end?

01:19|-|mankod [mankod@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
01:19<tmg1>Supaplex: isn't there a debian package that clears all your unused system files? (I know there used to be but I forgot what the name of it is)
01:19<tmg1>orphan-remove or something?
01:20<tmg1>lubos: try installing deborphan?
01:20<Supaplex>yea, deborphan rings a bell
01:20<dpkg>deborphan is a package that will tell you what library packages you have installed that nothing's using. If you want remove all packages use 'deborphan | xargs apt-get -y remove --purge', or a nice tool to clean up grown debians. provides a nice guide to several more steps to reclaim big chunks of hdd.
01:20<lubos>Supaplex: its not that I do not have space.. this is virtual machine but my aim is to make the virtual machine as small as possible..
01:20<tmg1>woo they have a gui version gtkorphan
01:20<tmg1>that's new

03:11<Supaplex>x: ps, centos != debian. I wonder why we're getting centos attention today... weird.
03:11<x>suiside, centos isnt debian, yes i know
03:11<akai>I'd say that you'd need a better machine to play a fully working dvd
03:11<akai>besides trying to run this mplayer/DVD-thingie, what is running on your machine?
03:12<akai>KDE? Gnome? A lot of apps?
03:12<Supaplex>or a hardware decoding card+video bridge
03:12<akai>that will make it impossible to run a dvd on such a machine.
03:12<x>akai, no. just evilwm
03:12|-|TeLLuS [] has left #debian [Bye]

03:13[~]akai hides in shame about his KDE/Gnome dualsetup
03:13<x>Supaplex, better switch to evilwm
03:13<x>akai, do u have any idea ?
03:13[~]Supaplex pats the 2.6gzh celery
03:14<x>hrmm, id better role back to centos :(
03:14<akai>x: not really, I remember having such errors on my very old computers back in the good old days of 2001 with low memory and not enough cpu.
03:14<akai>try a better machine?
03:14<x>akai, got no money :(
03:14<akai>Debian is a great distribution for many purposes, and displaying media is one of them :)
03:14<x>akai, yes i do agree
03:15<akai>so, there is really no things clogging up your system? nothing?
03:15<x>but, not for old cpu like me
03:15<akai>just the wm?
03:15<x>akai, nothing, yes. only wm and gkrellm
03:15<x>thats all

03:16<akai>this is actually described widely on the web..

09:11<Maulkin>or similar?
09:11<Tomalex>;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: NOERROR, id: 24483
09:12<Maulkin>It's the "status: NOERROR" that shows it's all ok :)
09:12<Maulkin>Sure, go ahead.
09:13<Maulkin>artur: bear in mind that sid is often broken, and unsupported. If your machine becomes unuseable, then we can't help much.
09:13<dpkg>the <unstable> or <thermite> version of Debian. Commonly backronymed Still In Development. It's actually named for the destructive neighbour kid in Toy Story. Ask me about unstable. Do not use sid unless you have the skill to find your way out of the mess that broken packages may put you in. It will never be released. see <sid faq>
09:13<dpkg>rumour has it, unstable is the status of a Debian release when packages can be added to the system at any time that might disrupt the integrity of the whole system! Ask me about <break>. not supported here, in general. It's also newspeak for not stable. If you have to ask whether you should use it or how, you shouldn't. apt-get install apt-listbugs (!) See <testing>, <sid>, <sid faq>.
09:13<Tomalex>Ok, the reason I'm setting this DNS up is because I want to be able to run a local server (for website development) using an external domain to point to the server. There will be serveral websites on the server and i want each server to have a subdomain... but I don't want to have to go out of my network and back in when developing
09:13<Tomalex>so I want the DNS to resolve these domains as internal IP's for any computer inside my network
09:14<Tomalex>does that make sense?
09:14<Maulkin>ahh, that old chestnut.
09:14<Tomalex>any ideas how i go about doing that? if you have the time

09:15<Maulkin>Tomalex: have a look around google for "bind split zones"
09:16<Aleric>I run a bind on my firewall and use it as only dns server for my internal PC's.
09:16<Tomalex>Thanks Maulkin that will do me nicely, you should of seen the search times i was using before!
09:16<Maulkin> may help with the concept.
09:16<Aleric>That bind then uses the dns servers of my ISP, except for those domains that I added a file for.
09:17<Maulkin>Basically: you need to be careful. But it shoudl work.
09:17<Maulkin>Just make sure the machine only queries your local dns server.
09:17<Maulkin>It'll get confused if it gets two differnet answers.
09:17<Tomalex>thats basically exactly what i want to do
09:18<Aleric>Tomalex: On my internal PC's I have thus:
09:18<Maulkin>Tomalex: how many subdomains will you be forwarding for?
09:18<Maulkin>It may be easier to just put entries in /etc/hosts
09:18<Aleric>hikaru:/etc>cat /etc/resolv.conf
09:18<Aleric>search localdomain
09:18<Maulkin> That *should* be ok then/
09:18<Aleric>I needed to remove some package that constantly tried to edit that file ... what's it called.
09:19<Tomalex>maybe 10 or so, I'm currently editing the hosts files on individual computers
09:19<Tomalex>its now getting a bit out of hand
09:19<Aleric>Something that claims to make sure that you network always works
09:19<Tomalex>i need a central palce
09:19<Aleric>Only interesting for wireless hotplugging imho
09:19<Maulkin>ahh, for multiple ones? Yeah, you're best off with bind :)
09:20<Maulkin>Aleric: hrm... network-manager ?
09:20<Tomalex>if i edited the hosts file on the dns server would that effect all computers using it ?
09:20<Aleric>That's the one.
09:20<Aleric>You have to remove that, it sucks :p
09:20<Maulkin>ahh yeah. That likes to play with random files.
09:20<Tomalex>so i need to remove network-manager?
09:20<Maulkin>generally very good unless you need to do something non-standard.
09:21<Aleric>Also, if you use DHCP on the machine that runs bind, you need a script to get the dns servers updated.
09:21<Maulkin>Tomalex: you should be fine if your DHCP server is handing out only that dns server
09:21<Aleric>Are you using dhcp?
09:21<Tomalex>yes, but the router is doing that
09:21<Tomalex>I can set the DNS ip it broadcasts though
09:22<Tomalex>so the place is to just change it to my dns server ip once its working
09:22<mikegrb>how can I find an older version of a package for unstable? in this case rdiff-backup 1.1.12
09:22<Maulkin>That should be ok.
09:22<mikegrb>.13 and .14 are in pool
09:22<mikegrb>Maulkin: thanks
09:23<Maulkin>mikegrb: but they're not supported and may break (so be warned)
09:23[~]mikegrb nods
09:23<Aleric>Tomalex: I have in /etc/bind/named.conf.options, in options { }, a section:
09:23<Tomalex>Aleric: do you have an example of your zone files?
09:24<Aleric> forward only;
09:24<Aleric> forwarders {
09:24<Tomalex>what are forwarders?
09:24<petemc>i have a shell script to generate zone files

13:28<Cytrax>hey evening... I have just setup a debian server and for some reason httpd and mysql are runing multiple threads.. and they are chewing up LOTS of memory.. any idea howto limit the instances of those apps?

13:30|-|Caino [] has joined #debian
13:31<Gathond>if you really want to limit it, set the maximum connection limit in mysql very low, but that will probably add other problems
13:31<Gathond>so? its probably the same memory being shared between them so its counted multiple times
13:31|-|e-Flex [] has joined #debian
13:32<don_armstrong>Cytrax: all of those mysql processes are probably using something on the order of 37M, and the apache 24M or so.
13:32|-|don_armstrong changed nick to dondelelcaro
13:33<Cytrax>when I do free -m it shows only 174 meg free
13:33<dondelelcaro>!free memory
13:33<dpkg>Unlike information, your computer's memory does *not* want to be free. Free RAM is wasted RAM! Linux caches files from disk in RAM for performance gains, and will release the RAM if programs need it.
13:33<dondelelcaro>Cytrax: you want to read the second line, not the last one
13:34<Gathond>Cytrax: look at the second line, not the first one
13:34<Gathond>Cytrax: that amount of used/free are without the buffers
13:34<Onepamopa>Cytrax, when some application needs ram, it gets from other apps, that currently don't need too much memory
13:34<Onepamopa>it's all dynamic
13:34<Cytrax>okay so it just uses what it can get till another app steps in?
13:35<Gathond>and well other caches, but probably mostly the disk cache
13:35<dondelelcaro>Cytrax: of course; otherwise the ram is sitting there doing nothing. You actually have 860M free.
13:35<Gathond>of which you have 640 MB, so you are not in any great need for memory
13:35<dondelelcaro>(well, trivially freeable)
13:35<Cytrax>haha cool :)

13:39<Rants>anyone here live?
13:39<dli_>Rants, limit in kernel VFS or in fs?
13:39<dondelelcaro>Rants: /proc/sys/fs/inode-max if it exists, but generally it automatically scales
13:39<Rants>there is no inode-max and its not scalling
13:40<Rants>im showing 13 gig free but no inodes
13:40<dondelelcaro>Rants: uh... that's got nothing to do with the kenrel
13:40<dondelelcaro>Rants: if your filesystem needs more inodes than you've got, you'd have to reformat it to add more
13:40<Rants>ive been banging my head agains the wall for a few hours.
13:40|-|MoDaX [] has joined #debian

13:41<Rants>im sure there are a ton of small files in the mail directory
13:41<Rants>i was just looking for an easy way
13:41<dondelelcaro>then you're probably using maildir instead of mbox, and you didn't increase the number of inodes allocated to account for it
13:41<Rants>how do i do that?
13:41<dli_>Rants, use jfs, I know inode table is dynamic in jfs

14:51<Eulex>Onepamopa, you're not expecting 'kde' to be a binary, right? because it's not. modern desktops are at least somewhat modular. unlike fluxbox.

14:53<Onepamopa>grasn, 500 ?>!?!?!?
14:53<Eulex>Onepamopa, there's no binary named kde, then it looks for source (headers) and then man pages. what use are headers and man pages for him?

16:51<donny>oh, i could have sshed into the etch system from windows to get that info to you, lol
16:51<donny>why didn't i think of that...
16:52<donny>interbird: tried the first ip ( and ping is still hanging
16:52[~]donny tries ip #2
16:52<donny>(96 packets lost)
16:52|-|anessen_ [] has joined #debian
16:53<interbird>could be ICMP gets blocked; does a browser connect on the etch-box ?
16:53<donny>well DNS packets are getting blocked -- are those also ICMP? i can't remember. seems a likely candidate
16:54<interbird>ping is ICMP
16:54<donny>interbird: right, but ping isn't the only thing getting blocked
16:54<interbird>did you try traceroute to see where stuff blocks ?
16:54<donny>interbird: you asked if a browser would connected -- presumedly to test TCP
16:54<donny>interbird: i'll try traceroute now. what route should i trace?
16:55<interbird>i can ping from a shell here so i suggest that as a target to see where it blocks

16:56<donny>i am getting absolutely no output from traceroute beyond the first line
16:56<donny>it seems, anyhow
16:56<donny>oh wait
16:56<donny>i got one
16:56<donny>is there a traceroute option to disbable dns resolution?

16:57<donny>well it reaches fine

16:57<donny>all asterisks after that

16:58<interbird>are you outside your lan already ?
16:58<donny>but it's all asterisks
16:58<donny>so it could be a lie
16:59<donny>hey if you run ethereal on a system pingably by the internet, i could try pinging that, or sending tcp connection requests, and you could see if anything got through
16:59<interbird>i would boot the dell with knoppix to see what that does. to eliminate local system (mis) configuration
16:59<grasn>how can i save the fstab as root, it says i don't have permissions. i don't know how to edit with console
16:59<donny>however at this point i think i'm just going to cgo home, and bring my laptopt in in the morning

18:22<rtmex>I need to replace date +%m/%d/%Y with date -d "`lastlog -u $1|grep $1|awk -F ' ' '{print $4,$5,$8}'`" +%m/%d/%Y
18:22<interbird>grasn: of course
18:22<rtmex>any ideas?
18:22<interbird>zaurel: did you dpkg-reconfigure as i suggested ?
18:23<grasn>interbird, but what u mean with clean
18:23<grasn>like formated?
18:23<dondelelcaro>rtmex: what's the point of that?
18:23<interbird>grasn: as root: mount -t ntfs /dev/hdb5 /1
18:23<interbird>grasn: as root: ls /1
18:23<interbird>grasn: does that show files ?
18:23<zaurel>inter can i PM you?
18:24<grasn>yeah it shows all files
18:24<grasn>but why the heck i cannot access, as user ^^
18:25<grasn>if i go as root to. DRIVES and browse the drive, i can access all files
18:25<grasn>but i cannot mount as user there comes the error

18:27<interbird>grasn: helping zaurel on an pm, be back in a while...
18:27<dondelelcaro>rtmex: right, but what you're searching for doesn't make much sense. In any event, you can do that rather easily by using -atime in find with a set of parenthetical expressions instead of what you're doing now.
18:28<grasn>interbird, please tell me if you back
18:30<rtmex>dondelelcaro:but -atime include only files that was accessed n days ago, and i need to include all files but identify that ones where the modification date is grather than user's last login
18:30<rtmex>it does not have to be a oneliner
18:31<dondelelcaro>rtmex: right, but you can do that by using an or'ed find statement

21:38<ne>interbird: #debian
21:38<Onepamopa>just use some mirror with testing, and do dist-upgrade
21:39<ne>interbird: you mean irc channel?

21:40<Onepamopa>any questions ?
21:40<interbird>ne: would you ask questions about your apple computer in a windows store?
21:40<Daver>So Debian holds the same packages for years until the next major release has current stable binaries?
21:40|-|dwb [] has joined #debian
21:40<grasn>lol thats was funny
21:40<jagerman>Daver: In stable, yes, and that is the point: you can install many different systems with the same stable release, and get the same thing.
