02:38<Owner>I'm doing an install and dual booting with XP. Is there any reason I should not use grub?
02:38<cahoot>I can't see any
02:39<Owner>cahoot: I fear touching anything of MS's. In the past I've used their boot loader to boot into grub, just to be safe. (And grub to swtich back.) But I'm not interested in figuring that out again. I'll give it a go. Thanks.
02:39-!-sco50000 [~scott@] has joined #debian
02:40<k-man>in kernel terms, what arch is an AMD Sempron2600+?
02:40<Owner>k-man: is it 32 or 64 bit?
02:41<k-man>32bit afaik (its pretty old)
02:41<k-man> /proc/cpuinfo reports cpu family is 15
02:42<Owner>k-man: Then it's a i386
02:42<Owner>k-man: Oops, I'm thinking arch.
02:42<k-man>but k6 or k7?
02:42-!-kingsley [] has joined #debian
02:43<Owner>k-man: You don't need to worry about it, just install, say, linux-kernel-2.6 and apt will figure it out.
02:43<k-man>Owner, i want to compile my own kernel for various reasons

02:49-!-SeveredCross [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
02:49<k-man>AbsintheSyringe, make-kpkg complains when i put k7
02:50-!-Spee_Der [] has joined #debian
02:50<k-man>unknown Debian architecture k7, you must specify GNU system type
02:50<Spee_Der>Good morning. Waiting for coffee to finish brewing.
02:51<k-man>maybe arch is i386 and subarch is k7?
02:51<AbsintheSyringe>k-man, very possible
02:51<AbsintheSyringe>it's definetely 32bit
02:52<k-man>AbsintheSyringe, yeah, i think thats it
02:52<k-man>recompiling now with i386

03:07<jimm>how do I go about getting nvidia driver going on xorg (for etch)? got nv now, worked after dpkg-reconfigure
03:08<whackblattbaby>jimm: /msg dpkg nvidia
03:09<jimm>do I need to build anything?
03:10<jimm>this sed command: s,.*-,,g
03:10<jimm>does it remove anything before and including -?
03:11<jimm>like foo-bar-baz becomes baz and foo-bar-baz-baaaz becomes baaaz?

03:16<jimm>once I install the nvidia kernel, would I reboot into it?
03:16<jimm>or is it just one or more additional modules?
03:16-!-rob [] has joined #debian
03:16-!-rob [] has quit []
03:17<jimm>I see that nothing additional is in /boot
03:17-!-rob [] has joined #debian
03:17<jimm>so I currently presume it's an additional module or three
03:17-!-rob is now known as Guest256
03:17<jimm>wish me luck... this crashed me before...
03:17-!-Guest256 [] has quit []
03:18<jimm>heyyy! no crashy!
03:18<whackblattbaby>did you read the factoid?
03:19<jimm>whether I did or did not, still the question is forward... perhaps if you were to assume I did read it, you might surmise the factoid does not answer that particular question
03:20<jimm>(or you could just read it to see what it does or does not say)
03:20<Spee_Der>Well, I'm burning dvd # 3... dang thing is sure slow, hope this works....
03:20<jimm>but having said all that, the nvidia module does load
03:20-!-ao2 [~u@2001:1418:117::1] has joined #debian
03:20<whackblattbaby>i don't know if for etch there is a prebuilt nvidia kernel module, or if you must use module assistant to make one
03:20<fxiny>ahhhh : i've finished to clone my system . mving boot in its own ext2 partition and all left (swap included) LUKS powered ;)
03:21<jimm>and I didn't reboot, and nothing extra is installed into /boot... that does answer the question
03:21<whackblattbaby>looks like its prebuilt
03:21<jimm>whackblattbaby, for 486 kernel, it is built
03:21<whackblattbaby>if there's a 486 one then there should be for other kernels too
03:22<whackblattbaby>apt-cache search nvidia-kernel |egrep -ri 686 |less
03:22<jimm>tried when I was running an amd64 kernel on this same machine

03:42<AbsintheSyringe>I got this new "mini laptop" it doenst have cdrom, I wanna install testing via usb but I can't find proper link
03:42<jim_>presumably, that means that the guy maintaining glxgears is aware of the problem... question: how long has he been aware?
03:43<AbsintheSyringe>anyone mind to link me?
03:43<jim_>glxgears has been around for at least 3 years
03:43<streuner>!rube goldberg install

03:43<streuner>AbsintheSyringe: /msg dpkg ig
03:45<jim_>AbsintheSyringe: you'll have to find a cable that provides the laptop with a net connection... alternatively you could remove the hd, attach it to a machine that has a net connection, install to that, then put the drive back
03:45<AbsintheSyringe>jim_, actually that was my original plan
03:45<AbsintheSyringe>tnx guys

03:46<dpkg>Factoid search of '' by value (1): usb-install.
03:46-!-Spee_Der [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
03:46<dpkg>i heard usb-install is Yes, it is possible to boot Debian from a USB stick (commonly referred to as a thumbdrive or usb key, among others) as long as your computer BIOS can boot from usb: or
03:47<fxiny>you can stick a netinst in your usb and let grub booting it
03:47<fxiny>i've used a iomega zip and a grub floppy on a old box
03:47<gsimmons>jim_: glxgears -printfps
03:47<streuner>AbsintheSyringe: How about a extern CDROM?
03:47-!-allisterb [] has joined #debian
03:48<jim_>maybe same issue if ext cdrom is attached by usb: does bios support usb boot?
03:48<AbsintheSyringe>streuner, don't have any extra cdrom laying around, and this one is so small that it didn't come with one :)
03:49-!-SeveredCross [] has joined #debian
03:49<streuner>AbsintheSyringe: what model?
03:49<streuner>AbsintheSyringe: (laptop)
03:50<AbsintheSyringe>streuner, asus eee
03:50<fxiny>AbsintheSyringe: hd install then . grub can boot netinst iso
03:50<fxiny>no need for cd drive
03:50-!-Katya [] has joined #debian
03:51<AbsintheSyringe>here's a nice find
03:51<jim_>gsimmons, that was it, thanks... so I guess I have nv glx now :)
03:51<jim_>1115 fps even :)
03:51<Katya>hi all
03:51-!-jim_ is now known as all
03:52<Katya>i have a mozilla problem
03:52-!-all is now known as Guest259
03:52<Katya>well i am an arab.. and i'd like to read an in-arabic site
03:53<Katya>the issue is that i cant make the encoding stay on what i selected
03:53<Guest259>so you can get it there temporarily?
03:53<Katya>and i told mozilla about my default encoding.. however it's now working by what i told it
03:54<Katya>every time i click a page there i have to change the encoding
03:54-!-samavb [] has joined #debian
03:54<samavb>hi can anyone tell me how to take out this kde wallet thing?
03:55-!-Guest259 is now known as jim
03:55<Katya>Guest252, that is to read it the page correctly
03:55<Katya>ok jim
03:55<devil>samavb: you could try to remove it, if you do not use it
03:55<samavb>how do i remove it ?
03:56<samavb>it is irritating
03:56<Katya>use synaptic
03:56<devil>samavb: but please use -s option first to see if it wants to remove other kde stuff
03:56<devil>samavb: like: apt-get remove --purge kwalletmanager -s
03:56<devil>samavb: and look at whats to be removed
03:56<Katya>so regarding my problem.. do u have a clue?
03:57<Katya>on google it seems affected by the options i gave
03:57<jim>no... I'm having problems understanding utf-8 which I don't personally need
03:57<valdyn>Katya: firefox or the icemonkey browser?
03:58<valdyn>Katya: or whatever its called..
03:58<Katya>yeah u r rt
03:58<fxiny>icewilly :P
03:59<Katya>i just dont understand the meaning of the change in the names!
03:59<valdyn>Katya: where are you changing the settings? in the preferences window?
03:59<Katya>yes in the prefs window
03:59<jim>some legal thing between debian and netscape
03:59<Katya>yeah ok jim
04:00<jim>netscape said debian had to do _______ (put something there) if debian called it firefox
04:00<jim>something like that
04:00<valdyn>Katya: that saves settings just fine.
04:00-!-k-man [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
04:00<valdyn>Katya: i.e. i just switched iso to utf-8 as default and that worked accross a restart
04:01<valdyn>Katya: isnt that your issue?
04:01<Katya>valdyn, but the page accessing is a windows-* encoding
04:01<valdyn>Katya: give the url
04:01<valdyn>Katya: maybe the site is broken..
04:02<Katya>now the issue is that every time i go to a page on that site i must set the same encoding again
04:02<valdyn>Katya: websites need to explicitely set the encoding, if they dont do that, your browser may have a hard time guessing
04:02<Katya>it just asks for the english encoding
04:02<valdyn>Katya: give the url.
04:02<Katya>yeah you could be right
04:02<samavb>my issue is everytime i open kopete i am asked for password for kde walltet and kde wallet is not installed in frist place i dont know how to get rid of this
04:03<samavb>i used that command given to me
04:03<samavb>but it is not installed in first place but i dont know how it is still asking me for password whenever i used kopete
04:03<Katya>samavb, u have then to config kopete
04:03<valdyn>works fine so far
04:03<samavb>how do i do it?
04:04<Katya>valdyn, yeah
04:04<samavb>there is nothing related to kde wallet service in kopete
04:04<Katya>click some where there
04:04<valdyn>Katya: ok, _my_ iceape switched to that autmagically
04:04<Katya>some link refering to the site
04:04<Katya>mine doesnt
04:04<valdyn>Katya: some forum entry?
04:05<valdyn>Katya: yea, hold on, i need to switch my proxy off probably, it does bugfixes
04:05<samavb>are u there devil?
04:05<Katya>ah ok
04:05<Katya>maybe yes i have to config the squid
04:05<valdyn>Katya: squid doesnt do that
04:06<fxiny>valdyn: view > character encoding > autodetect ?
04:06<valdyn>Katya: its not to blame, it doesnt patch sites
04:06<Katya>doesnt it force the encoding?
04:06<fxiny>or just utf-8 ?
04:06<devil>samavb: apt-cache policy kwalletmanager < what does that say for: installed:
04:06-!-mire [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
04:06<Katya>i'll see
04:06<valdyn>Katya: autodetect should be switched off
04:07<valdyn>Katya: could that have been your issue?
04:07<samavb>devil it is not installed
04:07<devil>samavb: that is strange
04:07<samavb>still it asked me for password whenever i open kde wallet service demon
04:07<samavb>it is kde wallet service daemon
04:07<valdyn>Katya: proper sites have the encoding embedded in the code, no use for autodetection
04:08<valdyn><meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=windows-1256" />
04:08<Katya>i am a web programmer.. but that made me sick
04:09<devil>samavb: sure it asks for a password when you open it
04:09<jim>du you tried openacs (a web toolkit)?
04:09<Katya>still the same problem
04:10<Katya>yeah u are right the encoding must be set on the site
04:10<valdyn>Katya: dont use the proxy if you but, but still mozilla does this just fine by default, so im slightly confused by your issue
04:10<samavb>so how do i avoid that?
04:10-!-mirshafie_ [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
04:10<samavb>how to stop that kde service daemon from asking me password?
04:11<samavb>neither it exists in services
04:11<samavb>nor it is installed
04:11<samavb>it is running along with kopete
04:11<samavb>for the passwords
04:11-!-philipp [~philipp@] has quit [Quit: Konversation terminated!]
04:11-!-phinaliumz [] has joined #debian
04:11<samavb>there is no option for that in settings of kopete either
04:11<samavb>dont know where to find it
04:11<samavb>to remove it
04:11<whackblattbaby>dpkg -P kwalletmanager
04:12<samavb>it is kde wallet service daemon .....
04:12<samavb>not kwallet manager is not installed
04:12<samavb>it is kde wallet service daemon .....
04:12<devil>samavb: the daemon wont be there by itself
04:12<samavb>yes it is running with kopete
04:12<samavb>whenever i use kopete
04:13<samavb>it is asking me for kde wallet service daemon password
04:13<samavb>i dont want it to ask me for that password
04:13<whackblattbaby>use kcontrol to turn of wallet option
04:14<devil>well, thats a good idea
04:14<samavb>where is kcontrol?
04:14<samavb>i am using gnome
04:15<whackblattbaby>install it first
04:16<streuner>gnome-control-center then
04:16-!-jello [] has quit [Quit: leaving]
04:17<valdyn>samavb: kopete is a kde app, you'll have a hard time changing settings without kcontrol installed
04:17-!-craigevil [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
04:18<devil>...and installing kcontrol will pull half of kde
04:18<whackblattbaby>its kwallet option, under security section i think
04:19<whackblattbaby>devil: no, if already running kopte, he already has it
04:19<valdyn>running kde apps in gnome isnt clean for sure
04:19<devil>whackblattbaby: kopete brings kcontrol?
04:19<samavb>yes you r rright kde components in gnome
04:19<whackblattbaby>kde components but not kcontrol
04:20<samavb>but what to do ? kopete supports webcam feature

04:20<samavb>pidgin is not

04:21<whackblattbaby>god that's sad if its gotten to the point where someone should be afraid to run a kde app because they use gnome desktop
04:21<whackblattbaby>fwiw kopete is one of the better multi-im clients out there
04:21<samavb>kopete is good without kwallet service daemon...

09:47<valdyn>themill: agreed

16:16<jim>the newest available from among the sources you have in sources.list.
16:16<jim>by default,
16:16<tucker>I use etch sources
16:16<jim>you could explore if you want
16:17<tucker>it's a working envoirment so I rather stick to stable
16:17<tucker>so were supprised to see stable crash;)
16:17<jim>oh, maybe one thing that could have gone wrong with your upgrade:
16:18<jim>a process was connected to and therefore using mysql at the time you tried
16:18<tucker>could be
16:18<tucker>since it said stopping deamon failed.
16:18<tucker>at least installing mysqld is a relieve for the process on 3.0;)
16:18<jim>like, if you're using mysql as part of a web service, and the web server maintains a pool of open connections
16:19<tucker>it does.
16:19<tucker>I run apache as non-daemon.
16:19<jim>so you would have had to stop the web service

16:19<tucker>probbably yes.

16:19<jim>so, this is a minor bug
16:20<tucker>I tried apache2, but I didn't like it. Is there a way to neatly tidy up the files?
16:20<tucker>second q. can I make a cronjob dump of mysql to another disk?
16:20<jim>and the mysql maint might look at how to see if mysql is in use, and veto the upgrade if so

17:12<bighornram>trying to setup ppp connection via bluetooth to blackberry, I get serial connection but no data transfer. how to troubleshoot it?
17:13<jim>one thing to find out is whether the ppp protocol is actually running
17:13<amphi>bighornram: there are couple of verbose logging options to pppd that might help
17:14<xpl>I m not sure whether thats what you all ask me to do but...
17:14<jim>yes, so it's talking about eth0 and eth1
17:14<bighornram>jim how do i check if the ppp protocol is running? ifconfig command doesn't show ppp0 connection. but ifconfig ppp0 does but no ip
17:14-!-kevind23 [] has quit [Quit: RivalSource - -]
17:14<xpl>eth0 is ethernet
17:14<jim>it'd be nice to find out what those are
17:14<xpl>eth1 is internet
17:15<jim>so the eth0 is the internal?
17:15<jim>according to the file, you're asking on the -internal- net for an ip address from some dhcp server lurking on that -internal- net
17:15<bighornram>amphi: how would I go about doing the logging?
17:16<jim>instead, you might consider running a dhcp server for machines that connect on your internal net, and decide on an ip numbering scheme
17:16-!-kevind23 [] has joined #debian
17:17<xpl>lets say I wont to be the desktop local ip

17:17<jim>for the laptop?
17:18<jim>ok, we can start with that
17:18<xpl>thats ok?
17:18<xpl>isnt it?
17:18<jim>and you don't need dhcp (altho it might be handy later for things like game lan parties)
17:18<_markus__>How can I set a package on hold from the shell without dselect?
17:19<xpl>ok, i mean, dhcp generates ips and everything automatically
17:19<xpl>so I need to turn that option off
17:19<jim>but which machine is the dhcp coming from?
17:19<jim>and over what connection?
17:19<xpl>i think that currently both connections use dhcp
17:20-!-Infinito [] has joined #debian
17:20<jim>but if both do, that means there's a dhcp server somewhere on the internal net

17:21<xpl>laptop - desktop - internet
17:21<xpl>yes, positive :)
17:22<jim>so that cable is wired differently (most likely)... otherwise one or both ethernet cards have new feature that negotiates that aspect

18:45<alex[1]>it never booted, i just can't finish the installation
18:45<jim>so it's a little clunky :P
18:45<jim>they're workin on it :)
18:45<themill>IIRC. there are two different lenny installers -- one which is the etch installer that will install lenny, and the other is the work-in-progress lenny installer (that will install lenny).
18:45<jim>cmon you clunky maints... WORK!
18:46<alex[1]>i think i downloaded the former
18:46<themill>There's also the kmuto installer that might help (that's etch with a newer installer).
18:46<jim>yeah, that kernel sounds like the etch kerneol
18:47<Simon42>alex[1]: you have an sata cdrom?

22:33<kop>maxdoubt : What ldap server are you using?
22:33<maxdoubt>kop, slapd
22:34<kop>I've used openldap before too, and it always seems a struggle but it works eventually.
22:34-!-lubos [] has joined #debian
22:34<maxdoubt>is there a more noob-friendly alternative?
22:35<Supaplex>hire someone
22:35<kop>maxdoubt : (Setting up the pam stuff for the clients is an entirely different problem. One of management.)
22:35<yangsx>jagerman: I use s2disk, but found power drain while it's sleeping
22:36<lubos>Invalid command 'PerlHandler' .. PerlHandler ModPerl::Registry..what do I need to install? I mean is there a package for this?
22:36<yangsx>jagerman: I searched the web and founder others complain similar problems with ThinkPad, though not T61 model
22:36<kop>maxdoubt : RedHat is, I hear, finally about to release their single-sign-on solution that they bought from somewhere. It'll be free software so should install. YMMV.
22:36<maxdoubt>kop, my client queries the ldap server... and i can see the logs on the server process the connection... but it doesn't authenticate correctly for some reason
22:37<kop>maxdoubt : Ususually the problem is in the access permissions in slapd.conf (IIRC that's where it is). You can up the debug level. Use "tail -f" on the log in another window while you try.
22:38<maxdoubt>kop... yeah i maxed out the debug level... but can't figure out what the problem is... maybe it the client wasn't setup to use the same crypto method on the password?
22:39<kop>maxdoubt : I don't have an openldap install handy, but there's some sort of bit mask you set to tell it what kind of logging you want.
22:39<kop>maxdoubt : Have you tried using the command line ldap tools to authenticate?
22:39<maxdoubt>kop.. not with that specific user, worth a try though
22:40<kop>maxdoubt : IIRC there's a way to supply the crypted password. You could then be sure it's doing what you want.
22:41-!-Seb [~Seb@] has quit [Quit: leaving]
22:41<kop>maxdoubt : (Or maybe I was producing the hash myself and comparing it with the ldap value? I forget. I did have a problem like that once. You need to get the salt right, and there's some sort of ldap-oid representation of what hash is used.... My recollections are blurred.)
22:42<maxdoubt>kop... its cool, i just need more time to mess w/ it
22:42<kop>maxdoubt : Maybe the openldap channel, or list?
