00:29|-|oddtod [~chump@] has joined #debian
00:29<lupine_85>well, yes. It's a Mozilla-based browser, so subject to the limitations of that codebase
00:30<blarson>geekunit: I woudn't trust a flash or java site. And don't download plugins.
00:30<blarson>disabling javascript is also a good idea.
00:32<Supaplex>spyware is for hoozerz
00:32<blarson>but that's just general web browsing parinoia.
00:35<twb>I find it easier to just not use a browser that supports js, css, flash, iframes, java, or any other stupid "dynamic content" wankery that people use to attack users ads and spyware

00:45<mikes1>knetworkmanager keeps dropping wifi connection ,Is this a known bug?
00:45<lupine_85>that'd be driver dependent, not knetworkmanager dependent
00:46<lupine_85>or, you know, signal quality dependent
00:46<mikes1>signal is good ,,might be madwifi ,,works fine in Sidux
00:47<lupine_85>mm, older drivers in stable
00:47<lupine_85>madwifi have always been good to me, though

00:52<xae>how would i install libc for etch?
00:52|-|oddtod [~chump@] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
00:52<xae>to install the nvidia driver :\
00:53<twb>libc is already installed in etch.
00:53<lupine_85>breaking debian 101
00:53<twb>If libc isn't available, you won't be able to run programs to install it
00:53<lupine_85>!nvidia one-liner
00:53<dpkg>somebody said nvidia one-liner was apt-get install nvidia-kernel-2.6-`uname -r | sed 's,.*-,,g'` nvidia-settings nvidia-glx && dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg (if you're on amd64, also install nvidia-glx-ia32. Using sarge? Ask me about <nvidia_sarge>. Homegrown or kernel from testing/sid: <nvidia_post_etch>. If you're using a Geforce2 or older: <nvidia_legacy>.
00:54<lupine_85>xae: you really don't want to update etch's libc to a non-etch version
00:54<twb>A fun way to kill your system is "mv /lib64 /lib64~ && cp -a /lib /lib64"
00:54<lupine_85>twb: that's recoverable
00:54<twb>lupine_85: I used a livecd
00:54<lupine_85>I used LD_PRELOAD
00:54[~]twb no understand LD_PRELOAD
00:55<lupine_85>I was migrating an ubuntu server to debian and didn't want to reboot it
00:55<lupine_85>so I built the debian server in a chroot, then moved all the stuff over
00:55<lupine_85>only I forgot about /lib
00:55<twb>I was trying to trick dpkg_shlibdeps into working
00:56<lupine_85>so it'd complain about a missing library, and I'd have to LD_PRELOAD=/chroot/lib/... my-command
00:56<lupine_85>spent 2 hours trying to get mv to work
00:56<lupine_85>finally got it all working to my satisfaction, closed the ssh session... then remembered I'd forgotton to set a root password

01:31<joe_>im using ubuntu 7.10, i had debain etch before and i got it working, but i wanted a change and installd this, now its not working
01:33<dpkg>Ubuntu is based on Debian, but it is not Debian, and it is unlikely to live up to Debian's standards (see <Debian policy>). Only Debian is supported on #debian. Use #ubuntu ( instead. Even if the channel happens to be less helpful, support for distributions other than Debian is offtopic on #debian.

01:41<BaD_CrC>i have a stipud question to ask. is there a way to beat the weird setup i have on this laptop and get it working with debian? i have an acer aspire 5610z laptop, and it has an atheros chip (supported in madwifi) for wireless and bcm4401 (ndiswrapper maybe?) for wired ethernet.
01:42|-|rame [~rame@] has joined #debian
01:42<dondelelcaro>BaD_CrC: beat it in what way? both of those devices should work fine
01:42<Supaplex>I'd take native over ndiswrapper. madwifi afaik is pretty stable.
01:43<BaD_CrC>i've installed etch/lenny/sid, and all 3 say they can't detect the network.
01:44<BaD_CrC>for some reason, d-i won't let me continue to install from cd.
01:45<BaD_CrC>i've tried it in both expert and expertgui with no luck

01:45<Supaplex>I wonder if anyone else with an install report provided extra info. have you asked the #debian-boot folks? They're idle, but they'll try to answer your question eventually.

01:45<xae>how to install the nvidia kernel
01:45<BaD_CrC>how about mailing lists?
01:46<xae>or where can i get a guide to configuring my sources.list
01:46<Supaplex>!tell xae -about sources.list
01:46<Supaplex>!tell xae -about nvidia
01:47<xae>but what if i have those sources listed..
01:47<BaD_CrC>heh, i made a simple guide not too long ago. lemme get the url
01:47|-|hollo [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
01:47<Supaplex>xae: you're trying to build and/or install the nvidia kernel module, right?
01:47<xae>debian says that nvidia-kernel-2.6- wasnt found
01:47<xae>i'm on 2.4 though..
01:48<Supaplex>you're still on sarge or earlier?
01:48<xae>its etch but the disc was sarge
01:48<Supaplex>you should be using a 2.6 kernel anyway
01:49<xae>i'm really rusty with linux atm
01:49<gsimmons>BaD_CrC: You won't need ndiswrapper for your wired NIC. The BCM4401-B0 chipset is supported by the b44 kernel driver.
01:49<Supaplex>xae: review the release notes, and ensure you've correctly upgraded everything to etch.

02:40|-|damejiar [damejiar@] has quit [Quit: Saliendo]
02:41<istoc>Is it customary to have a group for users, administrators etc? I see a group of the user's name.
02:42<twb>istoc: that's the default setup on Debian -- one group per user.
02:42<dondelelcaro>though that can be changed if you really want to.
02:42<twb>I use the `users' group to contain all users (including admins), and also put admins in the `adm' group.
02:43<dondelelcaro>(see adduser)
02:43<istoc>Does that mean that there are two types of users by default only? Users and root?
02:43<twb>Indeed, /etc/adduser.conf controls how new users are set up.
02:43<twb>istoc: what do you mean `type'?
02:43<istoc>default access permissions
02:44<istoc>ownership, etc
02:44<twb>There are always several "pseudo" users for administrative purposes, e.g. there is a user for the web server and a user for the printer daemon
02:44|-|hollo [~hollo@] has joined #debian
02:45<istoc>yea I think I saw some of those under my own groupings, for devices
02:46<twb>Similarly there are roles for e.g. audio, so only users in the audio group can use speakers.
02:46|-|shardz_ez [] has quit [Quit: GTFO]
02:46<twb>And likewise for disks and tape devices and suchlike
02:47<twb>If you run the command `id', it will list all groups you are part of.
02:47<istoc>Well, Im gonna try to find a tutorial about this, thanks for the help.
02:47<twb>If traditional unix user/group read/write/execute permissions are inadequate, you may wish to look into SELinux, which provides finer-grained NT-style permissions.
02:47<twb>I highly recommend the RUTE
02:47<dpkg>i heard rute is the Rute User's Tutorial and Exposition. A fantastic book that is available at or can be purchased at Borders. It covers Linux in a very non-disto specific method. The start of the book is "Binary and Octal" and ends with "Security Auditing"
02:49|-|kess77 [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
02:50<Supaplex>I see that iceweasel has patched the upstream shellscript which launces iceweasel, to allow tracing by gdb. I have symbols installed, and I'd rather use a core dump and save me the overhead of tracing it constantly. How do I enable core dumps, only for firefox-bin?
02:50|-|quentin [~quentin@] has quit [Quit: Quitte]
02:51<twb>Write a wrapper that calls ulimit?
02:51<twb>(Just a guess.)
02:52|-|Vorti|Away [] has joined #debian
02:52<Supaplex>ahh, so ulimit -c unlimited. maybe via a shell function.
02:52<dondelelcaro>an alias would do it
02:53<twb>I'm not a fan of aliases because exec() can't see them.
02:53<twb>So e.g. BROWSER=yowalias wouldn't work.
02:54<Supaplex>I think I can reproduce my issue w/o that caveat affecting me. but thanks for the tip.
02:55<twb>This stupid wireless keyboard keeps dropping events
02:55<Supaplex>now if I could only remember how or why it was crashing before, I could write some useful bug reports. heh.

03:29<maxamillion>twb: solid choice :D
03:29<twb>It's why I like Windows + PuTTY more than OS X -- it makes a better vt100 :P
03:30<maxamillion>twb: that i will have to agree with, but at the same time i have to give credit to apple as the lesser of two evils because at the end of the day, atleast apple's crapware is written ontop of a respectable system
03:31<twb>You could say the same about HP-UX
03:32<maxamillion>uhmmm.... accept HP-UX is a completely different platform .... its not made with desktops in mind

03:54<igcek>thats not a part of apt, that is a substitute to apt
03:55<streuner>Do you mean dpkg?
03:57<streuner>"dpkg" isnt a substitute to apt, apt-get is for resolve depends and download package(s)
03:58<streuner>and dpkg itself is to manipulate and install packages
03:58<Supaplex>none of these are significant low resource usage :) dpkg maybe.

04:05<twb>ipkg is a dpkg-like interface for OpenWRT.
04:06<hollo>hi.. if i want to pipe a line into a users crontab, how can i do that..
04:06<twb>dpkg handles unpacking packages, running setup/teardown scripts, and deleting files when removing packages. apt is a separate layer on top of dpkg (or rpm) that handles finding and downloading packages from a central repository.
04:06<dpkg>twb: I think you lost me on that one
04:07<twb>So yeah, dpkg and apt are orthogonal.

04:14<twb>We don't support Ubuntu.
04:15<slpwalkie>well, in debian, the laptop does not come back from hibernation
04:16<twb>That is more interesting.
04:16<twb>Do you know how to inspect logs to find out why?
04:16<slpwalkie>indeed, lemme do it again and describe it
04:16<veni>hi all
04:17<veni>hi all, I have created a local repository of debian and tried mirroring that into another system using debmirror command,
04:17<veni>it completed 100% but at the last showed error messages for some files saying, not found
04:17<veni>where as those files are present in the repo,
04:17<veni>for example, [ 93%] Getting: pool/anant/main/libx/libx11/libx11-dev_2%3a1.0.3-7_i386.deb... pool/anant/main/libx/libx11/libx11-dev_2%3a1.0.3-7_i386.deb failed 404 Not Found
04:17<slpwalkie>twb, I do not know which log files have that information or where the documentation for that is
04:18<veni>in this fashion some 13 packages are not found
04:18<veni>what must be the problem?
04:18<twb>slpwalkie: dmesg / syslog,
04:18<slpwalkie>seperate commands?
04:18<twb>veni: where are you mirroring from? ftp.d.o, a primary/seconary/tertiary mirror?
04:18<twb>slpwalkie: dmesg | tail -n 100, /var/log/syslog
04:19<veni>twb, first time i mirrored from
04:19<veni>and it was fine.
04:19<slpwalkie>I'll give it a read
04:19<veni>but later i am trying to mirror from my local site
04:19<veni>but the above was the error message
04:20<dpkg>The enter key is not a substitute for punctuation. Hitting enter unecessarily makes it difficult to follow what you are saying. Consider using ',', '. ', ';', '...', '---', or ':' instead.
04:20<veni>and this problem is with the packages whose name has % symbol, in its name
04:20<veni>anything related to this is causing problem ?
04:21<twb>veni: this is probably because there is something from with the local siteee
04:21<twb>veni: e.g. it's partway through a sync
04:22<veni>partway ? u mean partiall syncing happened ?
04:23<veni>twb, ?
04:23<twb>veni: yes, at your ISP or wherever the tertiary mirror is.
04:23<twb>Heh, how often do you see an em-dash --- in IRC?
04:24<veni>so i have to see my local repo ? for some missings?
04:24<twb>veni: I am suggesting there is something wrong with the place you are mirroring FROM.
04:24<twb>Because it worked with, but not with the second place.
04:25<slpwalkie>okay, powered up from hibernation and screen flashes black with text "INU" near the top, then a couple screens of smaller text scrll up quickly, then I'm deposited at black screen with a mouse cursor
04:25<veni>twb, yes, but what is wrong with my second place, tahts what my query is about

04:26<twb>slpwalkie: are you doing S1 or S3 hibernation?
04:26<slpwalkie>it's wierd that the laptop came out of hibernation okay just now, it gave me a password promt. I closed it and opened it again and then what I just described happened
04:27<twb>You mean the gnome-screensaver graphical password prompt?
04:28<slpwalkie>I think so
04:28<twb>It may be you're closing the lid and opening it again too quickly, so that it's still entering S3.
04:28<twb>The gnome-screensaver prompt has a "leave a message" button or something like that
04:28<slpwalkie>how do I modify that behavior

04:37<Supaplex>rafael: why not use a stock debian kernel?
04:37<rafael>there is a module in the kernel "ASUS_LAPTOP" it should be under devices -> misc devices but its not there. Depends on: MISC_DEVICES && X86 && ACPI && EXPERIMENTAL && !ACPI_ASUS
04:37<rafael>but what is X86 ?

09:09<gurpreet>fxiny, but its good, there is no other useful thing to do when u move mouse wheel on root window
09:09<witte>OzalexO: basically, everything remains the same, just replace intel with i810 in the things i told before
09:09<fxiny>gurpreet: i'm not gonna run flux 1.0 until lenny will be released . just checking

09:10<gurpreet>fxiny, you also using stable version of etch?
09:10<witte>!tell OzalexO about drxx
09:10<OzalexO>gsimmons, actually, it looks like that the i810 driver is used already. but with 1280x1024 resolution all screensavers are so slow... (

16:54<BlueG>dondelelcaro: ok... so it is another repo to add, right? but won't that still try to install everything available through backports when I click upgrade, simply because the versions are newer? (even though the may not upgrade libraries since they are compiled with older ones?)

16:54<dondelelcaro>BlueG: no, because it has a default priority which keeps that from happening.

17:55<Supaplex>BlueG: hurrah :)
17:57<BlueG>well, the package I want isn't in etch-backports either... I guess if I really must have it, I should upgrade to testing or something... well, that or downgrade to sarge...
17:57<BlueG>oops, sorry, the ellipses are a hard habit to break :(
17:58|-|K4k [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
17:58<dondelelcaro>there's nothing wrong with ellipses; they're certainly better than pressing enter.
17:58<twb>There's such a thing as too many ellipses.
17:59[~]Supaplex ties twb up with millions of superglued ellipses
17:59<Supaplex>don't diss the dots man. ;) they'll gang up on you!
17:59<dondelelcaro>rarely... though finding variety -- an emdash here and there -- is often useful.
17:59|-|guido [] has joined #debian
18:00<twb>That's an en dash!
18:00<BlueG>I guess I do tend to use ellipses almost like people who insert 'like, you know' about everyother sentence :(
18:01<Supaplex>don't stress over it.

19:48<dpkg>Updating debian files... please wait.
19:48<dpkg>Package 'pppoeconfig' does not exist.
19:48<Supaplex>ahh, pppoeconf
19:48<Supaplex>!+info pppoeconf etch
19:48<dpkg>pppoeconf: (configures PPPoE/ADSL connections), section net, is optional. Version: 1.13 (etch), Packaged size: 46 kB, Installed size: 344 kB
19:49<Supaplex>zztop: firefox is too far away from the issue. get networking working first. it's not an application (firefox) problem.
19:49<BaD_CrC>i might be new here in this channel and network (i hang mostly on freenode #debian/#ubuntu-offtopic) but i like to share and learn stuff as most any other person would.
19:49<zztop>im on knoppix now - when i am in debian and in the terminal i type sudo pppoeconf it says something like bad command or unknown command
19:50<Supaplex>you'll have to installit
19:50<dpkg>*** NEWS FLASH! *** Your box does not come with every app, tool and utility known to debiankind installed already. If you find that the program you've been told to use isn't there, install it. Also ask me about <search>. if someone suggests an application to you, it's highly likely that it's available via apt-get, or aptitude
19:50<zztop>so i guess pppoeconf is not installed
19:50<zztop>ok - but how can i install it if i cant connect to the internet - i only installed cd 1
19:50<Supaplex>yup. see how dpkg said it was 'optional'? Unless it's in base, you have to install that, or something that depends upon it. pppoe isn't something everyone needs, so it's not preinstalled.
19:50<dpkg>i heard apt-zip is Update a non-networked computer using apt and removable media, or just apt-get install apt-zip and read the docs in /usr/share/doc/apt-zip
19:51<zztop>its just like an installer in windows right?
19:51<Supaplex>download the deb, drop it on a usb stick or fat32/ntfs partition, mount it, dpkg -i apt-zip_blah.deb
19:51<zztop>oooooohhhhh that sounds good
19:52<Supaplex>and if it's popular enough, it should be on cd1 already.
19:52<dpkg>popcon is, like, the Debian Popularity contest. See results at or install popularity-contest to participate. do the dpkg-reconfigure popularity-contest right after you answered all debconf stuff
19:52<zztop>i will try that - thanks for the help supaplex!
19:52<Supaplex>np, good luck. :)
19:52<zztop>i hope you have a great new year ahead of you - ill be back if it works -

22:30<trinity>from not boot to the DVD
22:31<blarson>knewt: ia64 is something very differnt, and is an intel 64-bit arch
22:31<knewt>kmap: and since the core 2 duo chips are 64 bit, yep, it's fit to use
22:31<knewt>blarson: ia64 is the itanium arch. i didn't say otherwise :_
22:31<trinity>not...i dowloading the plataform 1386
22:32<blarson>intel64 is at best abiguous
22:32<trinity>else the procesador is 64bits
22:32<trinity>not is adm

22:34<knewt>blarson: maybe so, but intel themselves /have/ been using it to refer to their 64-bit x86 since late 2006
22:34<trinity>you speak spanish
22:35<blarson>!tell trinity about es
22:35<niru>I have espeak installed in my machine

22:37<niru>trinity, whome are you asking
22:37<niru>I speak Indian english

22:42<gurpreet>someone please tell me how to interpret the 3 load values
22:44<dondelelcaro>gurpreet: it's the load average over 1, 5 or 15 minutes.
22:44<gurpreet>dondelelcaro, yes, but what can i get the load info from these values. if 1st value on my system is 0.01 what does this mean?
22:44<trinity>what ??
22:44<dondelelcaro>gurpreet: which is roughly the average number of processes that would like to be running during that time period.
22:45<dondelelcaro>gurpreet: it means that over 1 minute, on average 0.01 process would like to be running.
22:45<gurpreet>dondelelcaro, means only 0.01 process has been run in last 1 minute?
22:45<gurpreet>dondelelcaro, its too less
22:46<dondelelcaro>gurpreet: *average*
22:46<dondelelcaro>reread what I said again
22:46<trinity>I do not understand
22:47<gurpreet>dondelelcaro, even if its average still its too less.
22:47<dondelelcaro>gurpreet: no, it's a perfectly reasonable load.
22:48<dondelelcaro>I mean, my load right now is below 0.01
22:48<gurpreet>dondelelcaro, you mean higher the number the more is the load?
22:48<dondelelcaro>gurpreet: obviously
22:48<dondelelcaro>gurpreet: if you reread again what I said above, and think about it, things will start to make sense.
22:49|-|lobao [humberto@] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
22:49<dondelelcaro>if on avarage there are 5 processes that would like to run during a minute, the load is 5.
22:49<gurpreet>dondelelcaro, i've read that, i've read man uptime too, read wiki entry on load values too, i feel all confusing, espacially the example on the wikipedia
22:50<dondelelcaro>gurpreet: what in particular about it is confusing?
22:51<gurpreet>dondelelcaro, there are many processes running at a time on linux. may be 40 on my system, each gets its own time slice to run before context switch which is in millisecs. this means tens or hundreds of processes are running in each minute. how can this value be 0.01 or just 5
22:52<dondelelcaro>gurpreet: you seem not to understand what is meant by "on average"
22:52|-|tome [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
22:52<dondelelcaro>gurpreet: if a million processes all run for a millionth of a minute each, what is the average number of processes running?
22:53<gurpreet>dondelelcaro, what i got from on average is that you are taking average of processes running each minutes. say if one min number of processes is 20 next min its 30 then average is 25
22:53<dondelelcaro>gurpreet: but it's extremly rare for 20 processes to run for an entire minute.
22:54<dondelelcaro>gurpreet: they generally do something, then sleep or select until something else comes for them to do.
22:54<dondelelcaro>gurpreet: if you had 20 processes which all wanted to run, then the load would be 20.
22:54<gurpreet>dondelelcaro, atleast 20 processes are running each min, daemons etc including
22:55<dondelelcaro>gurpreet: they aren't doing anything; they're in select or sleep for most of that time; therefore the aren't actively running.
22:55<gurpreet>dondelelcaro, it one min all wake up at least once to check if they should run or not.
22:55<dondelelcaro>gurpreet: so? how long do they stay awake?
22:56<dondelelcaro>gurpreet: a few hundred instructions at most
22:56<gurpreet>dondelelcaro, yes
22:56<gurpreet>dondelelcaro, or may be less
22:56<dondelelcaro>gurpreet: how long does it take for a few hundred instructions to run?
22:56<gurpreet>dondelelcaro, a ms or so
22:56<dondelelcaro>way shorter
22:57<dondelelcaro>it shouldn't be much more than a thousand cycles, which for most cpus is around a millionth of a second
22:57<gurpreet>dondelelcaro, may be i am getting it. what load means is the number of process that _wanted_ to run in a given minute but didnt got a chance
22:57<gurpreet>dondelelcaro, am i right?
22:57<dondelelcaro>gurpreet: it's the average number of processes that would like to run in a given minute.
22:58<dondelelcaro>gurpreet: it includes those that are actually running.
22:58<dondelelcaro>gurpreet: when you can tell me what the load is of a million processes each running for one millionth of a second, you will have understood what load means.
22:58<gurpreet>dondelelcaro, yes average. the processes that want to run and that are running in a minute divided by the amount of time slice gives us the average
22:59<gurpreet>dondelelcaro, like the avg is 1 in your million process and millionth of a minute question
22:59<dondelelcaro>gurpreet: yes.
22:59|-|otho [] has joined #debian
22:59<dondelelcaro>gurpreet: you're not quite saying it right, because it's actually the total time that processes spend waiting to run or running over the measurement period
22:59<gurpreet>dondelelcaro, cool. i thought it must be one :p
23:00<dondelelcaro>(which is, again, the average)
23:00<dondelelcaro>the average (or mean) being sum(measurement)/n
23:00<gurpreet>dondelelcaro, in your million process question the time should be one millionth of a minute for the answer to be one
23:01<dondelelcaro>gurpreet: right, in my example it's a load of 1/60th
23:01<dondelelcaro>(the original example had a load of one, though)
23:02<gurpreet>yes, 1st was one in second its 1/60
