00:01<bernardo>this UFC judges are kidding
00:01<bernardo>this is bullshit
00:02<Cackette>hey chealer
00:02<Cackette>something is being weird
00:02<Cackette>i do apt-get install alsa, and it doenst do much
00:02<bjb>Cackette - did you get your kde back?
00:03<bjb>Cackette - I thought you said you already had alsa - did you get alsa-mixer?
00:03|-|edthefox1 changed nick to edthefox
00:03<Cackette>i thought i had it, but apparently not

00:04<bjb>Cackette, the pastebin says you have alsa (which has been renamed to alsa-base) so it didn't need to install it
00:04<Cackette>typing alsa-mixer doesnt work
00:04<Cackette>seperate package?
00:04<bjb>Cackette, let me introduce you to apt-cache search
00:04<mynullvoid>hello all
00:04<chealer>Cackette: you already have alsa.
00:04<Cackette>i know how to use it
00:04<bjb>apt-cache search string will get you all the packages with "string" in the name or description
00:05<bjb>ok ....
00:05<chealer>Cackette: it's "alsamixer"; no dash.
00:05<bjb>so to find alsamixer, you could have: apt-cache search alsa | grep mixer
00:05<bjb>for instance.
00:05<Cackette>ok, so what do i do
00:05<Cackette>i have alsamixer and alsa
00:05<Cackette>but no sound
00:06<bjb>we've mentioned alsa mixer and hinted it might help get you sound. You could read the alsa mixer docs ...
00:06<bjb>run the program, even
00:06<Cackette>doesnt show much

00:13<chealer>Cackette: did sound already work?
00:13<Cackette>i dont remember if it worked on this install or only on the 1st one
00:13<chealer>Cackette: what's the difference between these installs?
00:14<Cackette>old worked, new doesnt
00:14<chealer>Cackette: why did you do a new install?
00:14<Cackette>some stuff was being screwy
00:15<chealer>Cackette: what's the soundcard's chipset?
00:15<Cackette>how would i check
00:15|-|bernardo [~bernardo@] has quit [Quit: Leaving.]
00:16<chealer>Cackette: you can try # discover sound
00:16<Cackette>C-Media Electronics Inc CM8738
00:16<Cackette>but i dont know if thats actually it
00:16<Cackette>since my sound card is made by Diamond Multimedia
00:16<chealer>Cackette: why wouldn't it use that chipset?
00:17<Cackette> is the card
00:17<chealer>Cackette: well...
00:17<chealer>Cackette: how do you know that sound doesn't work?

00:23<Cackette>no sound
00:23<Cackette>it said it was playing

00:25<chealer>Cackette: no, sound system, test sound.
00:25<Cackette>no sound
00:26<chealer>Cackette: are you sure the sound isn't mute in Debian?
00:26<Cackette>where would i look
00:27<chealer>Cackette: you could use kmix
00:27<Cackette>it says volume @ 0
00:27<Cackette>even if i move the slider
00:28<twb>Maybe it's muted
00:28<Cackette>aha, here we go
00:30<chealer>Cackette: KDE is set to use ALSA, right?
00:30<Cackette>uh, how would i check
00:31<chealer>Cackette: in kcontrol's Sound system, Hardware tab, Select & Confiure your Audio Device
00:32<Cackette>it says autodetect
00:32<Cackette>but i tried ALSA and still no sound
00:32<chealer>maybe it's set to Autodetect, which will probably mean ALSA, but you can try setting to ALSA to be sure.
00:32<knewt>Cackette: what does cat /proc/asound/cards report?
00:32<twb>Just use alsamixer, it *must* be using alsa

00:38<Cackette>Unknown or unsupported device `outputted'
00:38|-|faheem__ changed nick to faheem
00:38<chealer>Cackette: no. I'm asking help. does /proc/asound/cards's content make you think about your sound card?
00:39|-|comex [] has joined #debian
00:40<Cackette>thats the card
00:40<Cackette>the chipset says CM8768 though
00:41<chealer>Cackette: how do you know that's the card?
00:41<Cackette>read it off the chipset of the sound card
00:41<knewt>chealer: hmm, good point. conexant cx8801 sounds very much like a tv card or something such. Cackette: do you have a tv tuner in the box?
00:41<chealer>you red what?
00:41|-|Co_cr [~vin@] has joined #debian
00:42<Cackette>the actual sound card in the box
00:42<Cackette>on the little chip on it, it says CM8768
00:42<chealer>Cackette: yeah but what makes you think that CX88x - Conexant CX8801 is your card?
00:43<Cackette>whered you get connecant
00:43<Cackette>i thought it said c-media electornics inc cm8738
00:43<chealer>Cackette: you wrote that was the content of your /proc/asound/cards
00:43<Cackette>it says connexant on the chip on my tuner card
00:44<kop>chealer : Maybe there's more than one? lspci?
00:44<knewt>ok, so the answer to my question was 'yes' then. hmm
00:44|-|Co_cr [~vin@] has quit []
00:44<knewt>Cackette: is the conexant line the only one you get from asound/cards ?
00:44<chealer>kop: maybe, but discover sound only showed one. I think knewt is on the right track.

00:45<kop>chealer : I'm just back-seat driving. I've not been paying attention. Sorry.
00:45<chealer>kop: no problem
00:45<knewt>ok, so in that case there's no loaded alsa driver for the c-media card

00:54<Cackette>whats <whatever> supposed to be
00:54<chealer>Cackette: I don't think so.
00:55<chealer>knewt: he meant that snd_cmipci is already loaded.
00:55<Cackette>yes, its there
00:55<knewt>oh, right
00:56<knewt>this is what happens when i'm awake at 6am still :)
00:56<Cackette>only 9:55pm here

01:04<Cackette>fine, i'll do step-by-step
01:05<knewt>this can wait till you've done Cackette's stuff, but does ls -l /sys/bus/pci/drivers/C-Media\ PCI/ shown any device links?

01:18<Number9>those kernel messages we see flashing by when the puter boots--how do you view them again once the puter is up and running?

01:22|-|kos [~kos@] has quit []
01:22<kop>Number9 : You also look in /var/log/messages. That's also not quite the same. If you want a real record you use a serial port, use a serial console, and manage via another computer.
01:23<gsimmons>Number9: You'd probably want to enable bootlogd, to have these messages logged to /var/log/boot.

01:26<chealer>Cackette: which part?
01:26<istoc>Hi, anyone have any idea why when I run ethtool on an unused interface it says no data available? Thanks.
01:26<gsimmons>!tell Number9 -about bootlogd
01:26<Cackette>how to remove, load, and adjust
01:27<chealer>Cackette: to remove, rmmod. to load, modprobe. to adjust, make sure arts is set to OSS or maybe autodetect and restart it.
01:27<Number9>ty gsimmons
01:27<knewt>Cackette: something else i'd like to check, although i'm starting to get low on ideas here :/ could you modinfo snd-cmipci for me and pastebin the output please

01:37<gurpreet>do 3 DVDs of etch contains all the packages debian provides or should i use web repositories too? i don't wanna update my repos because this will make my 3 etch DVDs useless, but if there are other packages too on the debian mirrors than provided on the DVDs then i am willing to do that.
01:38|-|rorist [] has joined #debian
01:38<bjb>gurpreet, do you want stable release or some other one (like unstable, testing ...)?
01:38|-|Cackette [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
01:38<knewt>Cackette: hmm, ok, i'm out of thoughts i'm afraid. we've got a device that's being picked up by lspci. we've got the driver loaded. the driver has the aliases in place to pick up the pci device. but there's no binding in place, and the driver really doesn't have any noticeable debug prints into the syslog. could try force-binding the device into the driver i suppose, but don't really see why it would work

01:39<bjb>gurpreet, for stable, it might be reasonable to try to stick to CDs - for unstable, testing etc you want the network updates
01:39<gurpreet>bjb, testing will more good but because i already have downloaded 3 dvds of etch i won't wanna go to testing coz doning this will make my dvds useless
01:39<Cackette>that was weird, it just rebooted

01:39<bjb>gurpreet - you can give them to the next person - and they can hand them on ... they won't be useless :-)
01:40<gurpreet>bjb, but if web contains more packages than on dvds then i am willing to use web mirrors
01:40|-|kos_hire5 [~kos@] has quit [Quit: Ухожу]
01:40<gurpreet>bjb, thats good idea
01:40<bjb>gurpreet, web contains more up-to-date packages, ...
01:40|-|faheem [] has quit [Quit: leaving]
01:40<bjb>gurpreet, as time goes by, there will be more new packages as well
01:40|-|FRUTY_16 [~re_fugee@] has joined #debian
01:41<gurpreet>bjb, no i don't want up to date ones, i am concerned about new ones, like dvds don't have fluxbox themes etc, so i was wondering if i can have them if i use web repos
01:41|-|southernC [] has joined #debian
01:42|-|FRUTY_16 [~re_fugee@] has quit []
01:42<bjb>gurpreet, the cds contain only debian release packages from main (I think) - on web there are also non-free and contrib packages.
01:42<bjb>gurpreet, also, there are even other repositories that are not hosted by Debian - eg, the marillat multi-media repository
01:43<gurpreet>bjb, really? how can i confirm that dvds only have main packages?
01:43<southernC>they only have main packages
01:43<bjb>gurpreet, but, you can probably make do with the DVDs if you aren't fussy
01:44<bjb>personally, I'd want the updates
01:44<gurpreet>bjb, i was happy with dvds but now i am noticing that there are several packages missing, like on my gentoo system i have access to fluxbox themes packages and gkrellm themes package, these are not here on the etch dvds
01:44|-|snag [~snag@] has joined #debian
01:44<southernC>there really arent that many with the standard system from the etch 4.0 release from august
01:45<blarson>I strongly recomend you at least have the security updates.
01:46<gurpreet>blarson, but once i update my list, aptitude will start downloading packages instead of pulling them from dvds, so dvds will go useless (for me)
01:46|-|snag changed nick to Number9
01:47<bjb>gurpreet, if you stick with stable, then there won't be many updates (relatively speaking) (as southernC said).
01:47<blarson>gurpreet: No, if you have the DVD's listed first in your sources.list it will use them except where the package has been updated.
01:47<bjb>gurpreet, but if you want testing, then it is highly advised to stay up to date on all the packages and your DVDs will go out of date quickly.
01:47<Number9>ok now i have another question about booting---all those scripts in /etc/init.d/ are run at boot? even if some of them are from a previous install on another quite different computer?
01:48<gurpreet>bjb, blarson is there any good guide regaring switching from stable to testing?
01:48<blarson>gurpreet: besides, main/updates only has updated packages.
01:48<gurpreet>i've decided i wanna update to testing
01:49<blarson>gurpreet: If you care more about new software than stability, you can try testing or unstable.
01:49<bjb>gurpreet: edit /etc/apt/sources.list to refer to new area, then apt-get update; apt-get dist-upgrade. Then fix what's broken :-) Sometimes nothing breaks.
01:49<gurpreet>i can't live with just main packages
01:50<blarson>gurpreet: there are contrib and non-free for etch (and sarge, ...)
01:50<bjb>gurpreet, I guess the blank DVDs are not expensive - you are attached to the amount of time it took to download them. If you want testing or unstable, get used to downloading constantly :-)
01:50<Number9>gurpreet: you might want to dual boot between stable and unstable/testing----stable is---well lots more stable
01:50<gurpreet>Number9, you mean testing crashes a lot?
01:50<Number9>nope not crashes
01:51<bjb>gurpreet, or if you have a lot of memory and disk - run stable as a host and run unstable or testing under VirtualBox
01:51<Number9>just nasty litlle things like x wont start occasionally
01:51<gurpreet>bjb, that will be not much useful, i will have to download packages for testing anyway
01:51<bjb>gurpreet, when you update (which you do a lot with testing/unstable) you get to be front line for all the bugs
01:51|-|matysek [~matysek@] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
01:51<bjb>gurpreet, but it's worth it :-)
01:52[~]bjb runs unstable
01:52<Number9>the whole system doesnt refuse to boot gurpreet---just the parts that break occasionally
01:52<gurpreet>bjb, i thought testing don't have critical bugs, thats what is unstable for
01:53[~]bjb first started using Debian just as a release came out and suffered two months before her system was fixed up again.
01:53<Number9>whats that backports thing? where you can get sources for some things from tseting/unstable to run on stable?
01:53<bjb>gurpreet, testing is where they try to remove all the bugs. No new features go in - but occasionally a "bugfix" breaks things
01:55<gurpreet>bjb, i think i can survive with testing, please refer me to a guide for upgrading to testing, i dont even know what to put in /etc/apt/sources.list
01:55<bjb>Number9, you mean
01:55<southernC>anyone know anything about a bug in grub where running a raid it says a device doesnt exist
01:55<southernC>I see it on google but not sure of a patch ?
01:55<Number9>bjb: yes thats it
01:56<blarson>actually, new features go in unstable, and migrate to testing when they don't have any known release-critical bugs and don't break other things in testing.
01:56<bjb>gurpreet, I don't know of one off-hand ... try googling for "debian stable testing dist-upgrade"?
01:56<gurpreet>bjb, yes, i will, stable seems bore to me now :)

01:57<gurpreet>unstable will be too hot to handle, so i will marry testing

02:04|-|Cackette [] has joined #debian
02:04<bjb>gurpreet, yes, but if you're tracking testing, maybe you should change your sources.list to "stable" or the name of the new release for a month or two after the release is out
02:05<Number9>chealer: ok--but if you typically boot init 5 then all of them run?
02:05<gurpreet>bjb, ok, when stable will be released i will change my source.lst to point to stable

02:07<bjb>chealer, Number9 - in Debian, on boot into every runlevel, scripts in /etc/rcS.d are run, then the scripts for the runlevel being entered (eg, /etc/rc2.d)

02:09<bjb>gurpreet, I mentioned to choose a secondary mirror - I take that back. I'm thinking of other kinds of servers. Sorry
02:09<chealer>Cackette: maybe because these were added after was started, or because X can't handle them

02:11<chealer>Cackette: or it can't handle them the way it's configured.
02:11<Cackette>any way to force a resolution?
02:12<bjb>Cackette, seems you need to reconfigure your X server: try "dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg" and answer all the questions
02:12<Cackette>i did that, and selected new resolutions, and ctrl+alt+backspace
02:12<Cackette>but only 800x600 and 640x480 show up still
02:12<chealer>Cackette: no, the resolutions need to be set when X starts.

02:18<blarson>Cackette: on such systems, you may be able to set fewer bits/pixel to get more resolution.

02:58<fxiny>clone: nope : artemisia florensis :)
02:58<eburtusmc>All of the howto's I've read on booting up Debian for the first time seem to assume that a GUI loads. I get nothing but a command line.
02:58<clone>eburtusmc, what is the problem?
02:59<eburtusmc>I've done "aptitude install gnome" it did something, then when ack to the command line
02:59<clone>eburtusmc, so can you login?
02:59<eburtusmc>I can log in
02:59<eburtusmc>to the command line
02:59<eburtusmc>I can log in as me and SU
03:00<clone>once you log in type startx, and see if your X is configured fine
03:00<fxiny>no root gui login
03:00<fxiny>just su
03:00<eburtusmc>root gui login?
03:00<eburtusmc>I don't get a gui
03:00<fxiny>is gdm installed ? what about xorg ? ;)
03:00<clone>if you can do su, then you can do root, anyway, I never use root, I always do su
03:01<eburtusmc>yeah, I can log in to su just fine
03:01<fxiny>eburtusmc: is xorg installed ?
03:01<clone>so when you do startx what does it say, if gnome doesnt start then it will at least come back with an error
03:02<eburtusmc>ok, anyway I can get to the debian command prompt while using a ubuntu live CD?
03:02<clone>do apt-get install gnome again and see if it says gnome is already installed
03:02<clone>eburtusmc, oh, you can't even login to your system

03:04<dpkg>it has been said that xorg is X.Org X11, the reference implementation of the X Window System, forked from XFree86 4.4RC2. The current release is X11R7.3. Ask me about <get xorg>, or #xorg (freenode), or ask about <drxx> to reconfigure.

03:05<clone>if you boot, without ubunto cd can you login to debian system?
03:05<eburtusmc>clone: yes
03:05<clone>so when you did that, did you do startx?

05:26<southernC>that package doesnt exist

05:28<macdeem>southernC, I forget the command name, let me go google it
05:28<southernC>what are you trying to have me do mount a drive ?
05:28<bjb>borco, you mean, the md5 from the disk and the md5 from the burned dvd are different? or do you mean two different invocations of md5 on the same file returned different results?

05:31<bjb>borco, if I were you I'd be backing up my hd ASAP
05:31<borco>bjb: it's just a front-end for md5sum, cksfv, etc...
05:31<southernC>n/m thats not even my swap
05:31<bjb>and hoping it's not too late
05:31<southernC>its just a ext3 partition
05:31<macdeem>southernC, mkfs.ext3
05:31<macdeem>it should already be installed, but you have to su
05:32<borco>bjb: the question is how can I make sure that the hdd is really the problem and not the controller or the linux kernel?
05:32<bremner>borco: try smartmontools
05:32<bjb>borco, any noticeable problems in /var/log/kern.log, related to the disks/drivers?
05:32<bremner>borco: smart == HD diags
05:32<southernC>what exactly am i supposed to do with that >
05:32<borco>bremner, i'm using them. sometime they report errors, sometime, after a reboot, the errors are gone...
05:33<bjb>borco: backups, while you can still occasionally read
05:33<macdeem>so how would you add a harddrive, I forget, first mkfs.ext3, then cfdisk, then mount, and add it in /etc/fstab? I am pretty sure that how its done.
05:33<bjb>important stuff first
05:33<borco>for example, not they return "Raw_Read_Error_Rate 0x000f 100 100 051 Pre-fail Always - 2"
05:34<southernC>but the drive its saying that isnt there is already in fstab and boots fine on one kernel
05:34<borco>i had this problem before and, strangely, at some point it went away...
05:34<macdeem>I guess these are the commands: mkfs.ext3 /dev/sda3; and then run cfdisk and partitiion it how you like; and then add the mounts you like in /etc/fstab file
05:34<borco>bjb: this is what makes me wonder.
05:34<bjb>borco, hopefully your backups are up to date while you ponder ...
05:34<macdeem>southernC, so you have to add it for the kernel that doesn't have it already configured
05:35<bjb>even if you back up, you can still use the disk
05:35<borco>bjb: also, when using hald, the drive produces a 'clank' when hald starts. without hald, i hear no such clank

05:36<borco>bjb: how can i use it, if i can't trust it :(
05:36|-|giordano [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
05:36<southernC>right but if i partition or format that drive then neither kernels will bot it cause it will no longer exist...
05:36<bjb>macdeem, southernC, the order of preparing a disk is : 1) partition, 2) create filesystems 3) mount them. You don't partition a filesystem, it's the other way
05:36<bjb>borco, well, if you don't trust it, replace it?
05:36<borco>bjb: i even did a raid on 2 different hdds, and still get errors :(

05:37<bjb>borco, it's looking bad for your disks (and data).
05:37|-|altoid [] has joined #debian
05:37<borco>bjb, that's the plan, especially as they are in waranty period. but how can i make sure that the vendor will not say: 'this hdd is working fine?'
05:37<bjb>re, still using the HDD - I meant backing up is not an irreversible step
05:37<southernC>Its already partioned it already has a filesystem its already a bootable system just for some reason upgrading my kernel renders it useless
05:37<bremner>borco: show vendor smart logs
05:38<borco>bjb: that's the problem :(
05:38<borco>bjb: as I've said, the error comes and goes.
05:38<borco>bjb: it might be that the error goes when i take it to the vendor :(
05:38<borco>bjb: but i'll try that...
05:39<bjb>borco, then it's a matter of telling the vendor that the disk is not satisfactory. Don't take "it works for me" as an answer. Tell them how mission-critical your data is and insist on a replacement disk that passes your tests.
05:39|-|slaxz [] has joined #debian
05:39<bjb>borco, if they still try to make you take a disk you're not comfortable with - let them know you'll be switching vendors at the first opportunity.
05:39<bjb>and follow through
05:39<borco>bjb, bremner: the strange thing is that i have a similar problem with my 3rd hdd, that shows no error in smarttools...
05:40<borco>bjb, in Romania where i live this is ok for the vendor :(
05:40<bjb>well, try out the smart tools, like the other guy said
05:40<borco>bjb, as long as i don't buy tons of components, they don't care...
05:40<bjb>maybe they will give consistent results
05:40<bjb>one way or the other
05:41<bjb>borco ... I know the feeling
05:41<knewt>aren't the vendors supposed to send it back to the manufacturer who then does tests and stuff?
05:41<borco>yes, these hdd's are from Samsung. i wonder if I'll ever buy another hdd from Samsung...
05:41<bjb>borco, re what bremner said about "show vendor smart logs" - yes, keep logs of your tests as documentation.
05:42<bjb>s/tests/test results/
05:42<borco>samsung gave me some links to some dos/windows tools I should try to run...
05:42<borco>to be sure they will replace the hdds.
05:42<borco>i'll try to run those and see if i get any positives...
05:43<bjb>good luck ...

08:34<KaiSVK>macdeem, thanx ... I just try to google out something about debian vs. amd relationship :/
08:35<KaiSVK>macdeem, I would by AMD too ... mainly because of the energy consuption advantage against intel, although I dont know if thats true after releasing core2duo :/

08:51<fxiny>still recovering from sarge2etch upgrade :P
08:51<macdeem>hehe, I tried testing before, no more though, I think thats for the pros
08:52<macdeem>etch is the best thing from debian I ever seen since I began, actually sarge from woody was a bigger improvement
08:52<fxiny>ugrading is not that hard . i hate the mess with new configs
08:52<KaiSVK>macdeem, we have bought some very good server too IBM x3400 with Xeon, 2GB RAM, 3 SAS disks 143 GB each I think it was for about 1500 $
08:53<macdeem>I aint in your ranks. I think I am gonna get the $55 server, haha, thats so funny compared to your $1500 server
08:53<fxiny>yeahh sarge was good . i had more fun with woody

10:01<pasquale>because i never setup a webserver in past...
10:01<twb>You said you didn't need configuration
10:01<phogg>there's an httpd package?
10:01<twb>phogg: no, it's a virtual package provided by all httpds in Debian
10:01<pasquale>but if i install it... i don't know where to put hands after installation
10:02<twb>pasquale: by convention files go in /var/www

10:02<gurpreet>tiagosab, OH YES!!!
10:02<twb>pasquale: what do you mean by `server'?
10:02<phogg>pasquale: installing e.g. apache causes it to be started and set to start at boot time
10:03<twb>phogg: aptitude search ~Phttpd
10:03<pasquale>i mean... people can look my "pages" putting my ip in web browser?
10:03<pasquale>i reader about apache phogg . maybe it is good for my use..
10:03<twb>pasquale: that depends on your network configuration.
10:04<gurpreet>tiagosab, no, i don't have. i used to have it before i changed my modem. now it don't show wireless devices. it has dynamically configured itself
10:04<pasquale>ok twb thanks. anyway..what apache does?
10:04<twb>apache is an http daemon.
10:04<twb>It listens for and responds to HTTP requests from web browsers and other HTTP clients.
10:04<gurpreet>phogg, check out apache howto dude
10:05<phogg>twb: Still don't see it...
10:05<phogg>gurpreet: What? I am quite familiar with apache.
10:05<gurpreet>phogg, sorry
10:05<twb>I personally am not a fan of apache. I feel it is overly complicated and too focused on feature creep.
10:05<gurpreet>phogg, it was for pasquale, mea culpa

10:10<gurpreet>tiagosab, trying both

10:11<gurpreet>tiagosab, first test negetive, switching to plan B
10:12<twb>One nice thing about thttpd is that you can start it on an arbitrary port and directory as an ordinary user, which is handy for situations where scp and rsync aren't about, or you want better throughput.
10:13<gurpreet>twb and its tiny too

10:13<twb>The other nice thing is it doesn't do mod_silly, so I don't have to worry about whether modules have magically turned themselves on and are exposing my naughty bits to crackers
10:13<twb>It *does* do CGI, but since I ran it chrooted it couldn't execute anything.

10:25<WGK>I have been trying to compile a simple c program (aop, 64 lines of code) but get errors about undefined references and ld exits with status 1. Sounds like a linking problem, but what is it trying to link? There is one source file that calls three headers. But aren't headers handled by the preprocessor? So what is left to link?
10:26<tiagosab>gurpreet: google just told me it's ip6 over ip4 tunneling.
10:27<gurpreet>tiagosab, i asked google too, simple internet transition
10:28<gurpreet>i've a question related to shell
10:29<twb>WGK: libc
10:30<gurpreet>a command returns 0 on successful completion. then how command1||command2 work? they normally work that if command1 fails then only command 2 runs. but command1 returns 0 on success, so shouldn't command2 run in this case?
10:30<twb>gurpreet: the source command's exit status is discarded
10:30<WGK>twb: ohhh.. any idea why I would be getting errors?
10:31<gurpreet>twb, don't these logical operator on shell (|| and &&) work on return value of commands?
10:31<twb>WGK: you're calling ncurses functions without linking in ncurses
10:31<twb>gurpreet: they do.
10:31<gurpreet>so, if command1 returned0 then "0||command2" should run command2

10:32<gurpreet>twb, yeah, me too was confused by ur answer
10:32<twb>WGK: gcc -lncurses foo.c
10:32<dpkg>Damnit Jim! It's YOU. Y-O-U. Not *U*. U is a letter. YOU is a word. See ne1, or wud. Dutch for 'you' (formal singular). See
10:32|-|normes [] has joined #debian
10:33<tiagosab>gurpreet: I don't know waht are the correct words, but the shell uses 0 for True (or something like that).
10:33<twb>gurpreet: for two command foo and bar, foo || bar will always evaluate foo. bar will be evaluated if and only if foo returns with an exit status of zero.
10:33<tiagosab>So 'echo 1 || ls' will just display 1
10:33<twb>Er, foo && bar
10:34<gurpreet>twb, foo||bar was right in your cas
10:34<twb>tiagosab: echo affects STANDARD OUTPUT. That is not the same as the exit status.
10:34<gurpreet>means exit status of 0 means true for shell?
10:34<twb>gurpreet: zero is the only successful exit status.
10:35<tiagosab>twb: my example was poor, you're right. The '1' had no meaning. I should rather have written 'echo "something" | ls'
10:35<twb>It would be better to use the commands `true' and `false'.

10:36<tiagosab>gurpreet: for mc, you probably have an entry for sit0 in your /etc/network/interfaces file.

12:57|-|foolano [] has joined #debian
12:57<Joelito>I manage to install debian system base from the DVD-1
12:57<Joelito>but i don't know how to install kde..any tips, please :(
12:57<ifvoid>kde should be on the first dvd, I guess
12:58<ifvoid>doesn't apt-get install kde work?
12:58<Joelito>it'll do, but is in a pc without internet :(
12:58<Joelito>plus: I know that first I need somethind like:
12:59<Joelito>apt-get install xserver-xorg xfonts-base
12:59<gurpreet>Joelito, when u install debian, there is option to install kde instead of gnome(default), set tasks="standard, kde"
12:59<gurpreet>Joelito, do F5,F6(don't remember exactly) you will see the option written there in the last
12:59<Joelito>gurpreet: where should I write that?
13:00<petemc>now you have debian installed, thats not required - just use aptitude

13:02<witte>gurpreet: why?
13:02<gurpreet>Joelito, you don't need internet connection, both gnome and kde are on dvds
13:02<witte>Joelito: yes, but you apt-get can use the cdrom/dvd sources

14:58<gurpreet>witte, yes, this equation is holding true on my system
14:58<jcpiza>using cheap 2 GiB modules
14:58<jcpiza>and run 64 bit code.
14:58<gurpreet>that means free mem is already including buffer and cache
14:59<witte>gurpreet: uhm, no
14:59<simonrvn>Zeus: there is no problem with that
14:59<jcpiza>So, you has a lot of space of disk's cache
14:59<witte>gurpreet: buffers and cache are part of used memory
14:59<jcpiza>and it goes flying ...
15:00<gurpreet>witte, how can u say that?
15:00<jcpiza>as birds!
15:01<witte>gurpreet: because free < cached on my system ;-)
15:01<jcpiza>not as turtles!
15:01<gurpreet>witte, oh, then you must be right :)

15:06<Zeus>yep it`s all that I like to know "The short answer is that you should never worry about the amount of free memory on Linux. The kernel attempts to keep this slightly above zero by keeping the cache as large as possible. This is a feature not a bug." senk you all

15:08<gurpreet>witte, no worries, its always up to date
15:08<gurpreet>please tell me the name of some offline english dictionary in the debian packages
15:09<simonrvn>Zeus: exactly
15:09<gurpreet>i used to use dict but its goes online to fetch definitions

15:10<witte>Pwak: no idea
15:10<witte>Pwak: i thought you were at a plain netinst
15:11<gurpreet>simonrvn, by using dictionary packages, does dictd won't go online?
15:11<simonrvn>dictd runs local to wherever it is; configure dict to query that dictd. rather simple
15:13<gurpreet>simonrvn, isnt there any non client-sever way. running a dictd server all time just to see 1-2 words everyday will be a bad idea

17:25<Cackette>i closed X, then tried to start it back up

17:25<Cackette>when i use KDE

17:27<hever>How can I remove a self compiled program cleanly from my disc? I'm not sure where all files are ?
17:28<bremner>hever: basically, you can't. Maybe the program has an uninstall target? Next time, checkinstall is your friend
17:29<gravity>The uninstall target applies to anything that's autotool'ed
17:29<hever>its bind
17:30<sooperkuh>hever: if your'e lucky it all ended up in /usr/local/...
17:30<kingsley>Cackette: That looks like yet another google research project (yagrp) to me. Perhaps the keywords kdm, gdm and ~configure would yield an answer.
17:31<hever>How can I find out how the debian bind package is build ?
17:31<bremner>hever: apt-get source bind
17:32|-|Cackette [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
17:32<kingsley>hever: If the self compiled programs were compiled recently, perhaps you could find them by sorting directory listings by date.
17:32<hever>Means wich config options are used ? Debian is kewl, because it have a good package management. But sometimes I'm not 100% sure how the packages are build. (Most times good for all requirements)
17:33<kingsley>hever: What bremner said.

18:12<Cackette>How do i make debian recognize my CD burner
18:13<leonidas>Am I right in saying that when you configure Alsa to work with your sound card, you dont get to have that icon for the volume control anymore?
18:13<Cackette>its hooked up, but i cant select it in a k3d
18:13<leonidas>besides the Alsa Mixer gui
18:13<DaCapn>leonidas that's incorrect
18:13<leonidas>so why is it gone then?
18:14<leonidas>can I reinstall it?
18:14<leonidas>all I did is configure Alsa
18:14<DaCapn>right, listen for a second, all will become clear
18:14<leonidas>please DaCapn
18:15<leonidas>well I am all ears :)
18:15<DaCapn>well my typing speed is not infinite, so keep waiting
18:15<leonidas>ok :)
18:16|-|Cackette [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
18:16<DaCapn>when you started the alsa configuration, it terminated all processes using your sound card, including 'gnome-volume-manager' You probably got a prompt saying "the volume manager quit unexpectedly" and you could reload it or not. You could have waited until the configuration was done and hit reload and it would have reloaded
18:16<DaCapn>you could open up a terminal and run 'gnome-volume-manager'
18:16<leonidas>yes I remember now
18:17<sooperkuh>isn't gnome-volume-manager responsible for mounting volumes (as in disks)?
18:18<DaCapn>hahah yeah sorry, control not manager

22:37<dpkg>flash is, like, frequently used to deliver interactivity, audio and video through a web browser. Ask me about <gnash> for a free implementation or <adobe flash> for a non-free implementation. Also see
22:37<witte>!adobe flash
22:37<dpkg>Adobe flash is a non-free flash player and is in the package flashplugin-nonfree but is broken in etch: use the one from or flashplayer-mozilla from (ask me about <non-free>, <bpo> and <dmm>). It will not be included in future stable releases (see If you are using a 64-bit browser, ask me about <nspluginwrapper>. For a free alternative, ask me about <gnash>.
22:38<zedboy>witte: force of habit?
22:38<dpkg>rumour has it, flashplugin-nonfree is the debian package to install the adobe flash player, see

23:04<kevind23>zedboy: If you have a windows box with IE7 you can get something called Multiple IE (, it's very useful if you're into web design ^^
23:04<witte>clone: it is a debian package, you just need to have the debian non-free sources
23:04<clone>witte, I have flash working, its just the full screen option

23:04<zedboy>kevind23: hmm, hadn't heard of that
23:05<kevind23>zedboy: You don't need IE7, any IE version will work, but it lets you use older versions as well
23:05<witte>clone: well, it works on my pc, at least for youtube
23:05<clone>witte, ok I am gonna see if I have the nonfree version installed
23:06<zedboy>kevind23: whoa

23:06<kevind23>I don't understand microsuck's attachment with its terrible rendering engine; if they don't want to preinstall Firefox or Opera instead of IE then why don't they just use Gecko
23:06<witte>clone: do you have stable?
23:06<clone>witte, yes
23:07<xman>kevind23: they actually claim to have fixed it, and that development builds of IE8 even pass Acid2
23:07<kevind23>xman: HAH! I seriously doubt that
23:07<kevind23>Not even Firefox passes Acid2, just KHTML and Opera as far as I know..
23:07<clone>witte, I can't find flashplugin-nonfree
23:07<xman>that is, when their new "super-standards mode" is triggered, which means that all of today's pages will still be rendered with the current engine with frozen bugs
23:07[~]zedboy 's stuff mostly works on IE7 (so far...)
23:08<witte>!adobe flash
23:08<dpkg>Adobe flash is a non-free flash player and is in the package flashplugin-nonfree but is broken in etch: use the one from or flashplayer-mozilla from (ask me about <non-free>, <bpo> and <dmm>). It will not be included in future stable releases (see If you are using a 64-bit browser, ask me about <nspluginwrapper>. For a free alternative, ask me about <gnash>.
23:08<kevind23>clone: what are you trying to do? you can get a tarball of flash on macr-- Adobe's website
23:08<zedboy>xman: it's a great strategy: keep the bug for long enough for it to count as a feature.
23:08<clone>kevind23, I don't like to install without debian
23:08<witte>it seems you have to use the one from backports, or the one from debian-multimedia when you are in stable
23:09<zedboy>Next order of business: what happened to edge-flipping in sawfish?
23:09<witte>kevind23: it is nicer if he uses the debian packages. In that way he will receive automatic updates
23:10<kevind23>witte: true, I just have amd64 so I have to do it the hard way :p
23:10<zedboy>xman: oh, hehe, I thought you had a bead on the sawfish thing, I was going to be *really* impressed.
23:10[~]xman uses ion3 for wm
23:10<kevind23>and I've been meaning to ask you, is monodevelop in any of debian's repos? for whatever reason my ISP blocks the official mono debian repo and meebey's unstable repo doesn't have all the dependencies I need for it :(
23:15<witte>kevind23: mono-devel is my list when i do apt-cache search mono
23:15<witte>kevind23: and monodevelop also :-)
23:15<witte>kevind23: the list was just a bit long, i did not notice it at first sight
23:15<witte>kevind23: i use sid btw, i will check if it is also in stable
23:15<witte>kevind23: ok, it is not

23:16<kevind23>witte: lol flood.. um, I use sid too, but I couldn't find monodevelop, then again apt won't let me use the unstable repos x(
23:16<witte>kevind23: ok, got kicked due to a strange delay, again
23:17<kevind23>lag? heh.. but still.. let me search for it again
23:17<witte>kevind23: i do not know what you all got
23:17<witte>kevind23: you can always try a simple sid backport
23:17<kevind23>oooor I could compile from source
23:18<kevind23>yeah I can't find it
23:18<witte>!tell kevind23 about simple sid backport

23:19<kevind23>witte: if monodevelop isn't in my repo to begin with how does that help me?
23:21<witte>kevind23: monodevelop is not in etch. But it is in sid (and should be in your sid repo) so you could build the deb files using the thing that dpkg told you, using the sid source and etch libraries

23:36<kess77>net so much that my problem was with the drive itself, but that I was trying to mix ide and sata together

23:39<FelipeSouza>please, what's the file that contains all installed packages??
23:40|-|hexmode [] has joined #debian
23:40<kess77>the problem I had was that debian has decided to change drive address format for ide
23:41<kess77>used to be ide drives were hda, hdb, etc
23:41<kess77>in etch ide drives are now sda, sdb, etc.
23:42<DaCapn>are they?
23:42<kess77>they get confused with sata drives which are also assigned sda, sdb, etc
23:42<DaCapn>they don't appear to be in my last 3 etch installations, and they don't appear to be in this one that's not exactly working

23:47<gurpreet>bjb, got it. xmms2d is downloading something heavily from ""
23:48<gurpreet>i just noticed it from my conky graphs and checked it with tcpdump
23:49<gurpreet>i don't know why is it doing so, its still downloading
23:51<twb>gurpreet: that could be the et module
23:51<gurpreet>et module?
23:52<gurpreet>twb, what is et module for?
23:52<twb>When xmms crashes, it sends a report (without asking) to the developers
23:52|-|lupine_85 [] has joined #debian
23:52<twb>Looking at the URL, this now seems unlikely
23:53<gurpreet>twb, xmms2 didnt crashed. and it was not sending but downloading. that too not from developers but from shoutcast ppl
23:54<twb>If it's downloading, then presumably it's downloading an audio stream.
23:54<gurpreet>twb, yes, but because xmms was stopped and my playlist was empty this also seems unlikely
