00:09<chealer>creeed: had you already installed another GNU/Linux distribution before?
00:10-!-mpoer [~matthew@] has joined #debian
00:10<creeed>chealer, yes I did, hey are you from the FSF to make some statistic or what! :P
00:11<mpoer>hey guys, I'm curious about running GUI applications without X - I've seen it done in old versions of the gentoo-based SystemRescueCD, but I'm not sure how they did it. Any ideas?
00:11<chealer>creeed: no. I'm just wondering why you're talking about "xf86-video-intel" rather than i810, and how much experience you have with GNU/Linux.
00:12<chealer>mpoer: so if you already used Linux, could you provide your xorg.conf?
00:12<mpoer>chealer - it didn't use X. wasn't in the system AFAIK at least
00:13<chealer>mpoer: you mean running them on a remote X server?
00:13<mpoer>it was odd, you would type in run_qtparted (or something similar) and it would put qtparted in your frame buffer
00:13<chealer>mpoer: sorry, my first message to you was actually for creeed
00:13<mpoer>or somewhere - it was graphical, but I swear there was no xserver
00:13<chealer>creeed: : so if you already used Linux, could you provide your xorg.conf?
00:14<chealer>mpoer: hum, no idea
00:14<mpoer>weird stuff, right? I'd never seen it before and have never seen it since
00:14<mpoer>but I was hoping to not have to go digging through their git repos and such
00:15<mpoer>looking for a clue
00:15<creeed>chealer, yes I can

00:26<creeed>Release Date: 19 April 2007
00:26<creeed>X Protocol Version 11, Revision 0, Release 1.3
00:26<chealer>creeed: are you sure you're using etch?
00:26<creeed>so as you ask now, I'm using ubuntu but in the ubuntu channel nobody helps!
00:27<creeed>I'm sorry
00:27<creeed>but I use etch on a second computer
00:28<creeed>the problem should have with the ubuntu-laptop, the etch-pc works fine just no 3d-desktop but that doesnt matter
00:29<creeed>sorry chealer I aint kidding nobody just want getting some help
00:30<chealer>creeed: try harder next time
00:30<creeed>you mean on #ubuntu?
00:32<chealer>creeed: if you ever come back here for help with Ubuntu pretending to use Debian.
00:32<chealer>creeed: but maybe you should try harder on #ubuntu too. I didn't see you try.
00:32<RIVE>Really LOL.
00:33<creeed>chealer, that was before I ask for help here, about an hour I think and really more times. and I didnt lie I use really etch on an other computer
00:33<RIVE>Sorry, i'm laughing realy loud, even my wife ask me wy.
00:34<creeed>RIVE, nobody find it funny until you!
00:35<RIVE>creeed, when i Used Ubuntu a really good source of information was Ubuntu forums.
00:35<RIVE>Sorry, i know it ony was fun for me.
00:36<creeed>RIVE, right, I do too
00:36<RIVE>Ok, ok, sorry.

01:08<eldowan>I've got APT::Default-Release "testing"; in /etc/apt/apt.conf but aptitude seems to be pulling from sid more often than not. Am I doing something incorrectly?
01:09<chealer>eldowan: for example?
01:09<JustSoul>Aleric: hexdump?
01:09<eldowan>libgcj-bc bsh gcc g++ make bzip2 etc...

01:11<sydgdfgs>hye i am wondering if anyone can answer an issue i am having

01:14<chealer>eldowan: OK. could you show something specific you do with these packages that doesn't go as you think it should?

01:14-!-Picazzoff [] has quit []
01:15<chealer>sydgdfgs: I guess whatever differences there are should be investigated
01:15<RIVE>Have to go, good night to all.
01:15<JustSoul>RIVE: good, bb
01:16<eldowan>chealer: well, I'm in the aptitude install phase of the factoid !aptitude clone. I don't do anything yet, but I assumed that with the only line of my apt.conf being the one above, and no /etc/apt/preferences that it wouldn't but a few files from sid
01:16-!-RIVE [~cesar@] has left #debian []
01:17<chealer>eldowan: well, could you try something more simple, like apt-get install...
01:17-!-Politics [] has quit []
01:18<eldowan>chealer: maybe I'm interpreting this wrong. apt-cache policy gksu reports this: 500 ... sid 990 ... testing. I would think that testing would get first go, not sid. Am I incorrect?
01:18<chealer>eldowan: no
01:19<eldowan>chealer: is it because they both have the same version number -- exactly -- that they are pulling from sid? I notice that sudo version is different from sid to testing, and I'm pulling testing down.
01:19-!-pobega [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
01:19<Aleric>Does anyone know... if one deletes a file on ext3, does it even erase the content of Indirect Blocks? (The content of the block saying "Block Addresses" in ?
01:20<Aleric>That seems non-sense - as every relationship of the content with block address is gone anyway.
01:20<Aleric>It's just a block :/
01:20<chealer>eldowan: if they're the same version, how do you know they're not pulled from lenny?
01:20<Aleric>It seems much more logical to only erase the block pointers in the inode, no?
01:20-!-sydgdfgs [] has left #debian []
01:21<eldowan>chealer: the scrolling text from aptitude says sid
01:21<eldowan>..... sid/main <package>
01:22<chealer>eldowan: please provide your sources.list
01:22<Aleric>I guess I'm going to have to experiment with this :/ .. Hm, that's why I joined here I remember now: I wanted to ask how to create a 100 MByte ext3 partition as file on my disk. Create it with dd, run mke2fs on it, and then mount it how? Something with -o loop I thought :/
01:24<eldowan>chealer: I think its because I have sid above testing in my sources.list.
01:25<Aleric>eldowan: Surely you already read the url I gave you and now know exactly how to interpret the output of apt-cache policy to debug this problem?
01:25<chealer>eldowan: right
01:25<eldowan>Aleric: I couldn't follow all of it.
01:25<Aleric>knowledge requires work :/
01:25<eldowan>Aleric: true, true
01:26<Aleric>Is it unhealthy to skip a night every other day?
01:26*Aleric doesn't feel like going to bed...
01:27<Aleric>Oh well.. 6 hours should be enough
01:27*Aleric is away: sleeping
01:28<JustSoul>Aleric: create with dd, run mke2fs, mount with -o loop options =)
01:29<JustSoul>Aleric: good night
01:31<eldowan>chealer: thanks for the help. I've come to my senses and realize that I will probably be better off in a non mixed system. I still don't understand the whole of the pinning URL, but thats neither here nor there
01:32<chealer>eldowan: really? it's not that hard. is there any problem?

01:32<eldowan>once I moved the sid to the bottom of sources.list, the behavior was unchanged. from what I understand, I should be pulling from testing, but I'm not.

01:36-!-Torsten_W [] has joined #debian
01:37<chealer>eldowan: IIUC the only thing you don't understand is why aptitude uses sid sources for a package version which is both in sid and lenny when testing sources are above sid sources
01:37<eldowan>Yes, that I certainly don't understand
01:38<chealer>eldowan: what else?
01:38<eldowan>Honestly, I'm not sure

02:43<vsmatck>was that BS? I have no idea.

04:04-!-meandtheshel1 [] has quit [Quit: Leaving.]
04:06<eldowan>dli: I was informed on this channel that I needed to manually install the driver and firmware. Hmm. I'll try again to work the card.
04:06<dpkg>You need the firmware to make the card work. Run "/sbin/modinfo ipw2200 |grep version" to get your driver version. Go to and download the firmware matching your driver version. Unpack it into /lib/firmware. You will need to have udev or hotplug installed to load the firmware. If you have a kernel earlier than 2.6.15, ask about <ipw2200 build>. See also <ipw2200 troubleshooting>.

04:13<eldowan>dli: I think I messed up files provided by my linux-image package. would aptitude reinstall rebuild missing files that were deleted?
04:14<dli>eldowan, you can rm the old /lib/modules/2.6.22-3-686 folder, and reinstall the linux-image package
04:15<eldowan>dli: to make sure I understand: rm /lib/modules/2.6.22...; aptitude reinstall linux-image..... ?
04:15<dli>eldowan, of course, you have to reinstall all kernel module packages (if any)

04:39<eldowan>dli: I've got the module loaded, and the driver is active. Thanks for the help on that. You wouldn't know, by chance, how I would go about activating the HW for the wireless? I get the message that the killswitch must be off to work.
04:39-!-BBoyDanny [] has joined #debian
04:43<dli>eldowan, it could be a hardware switch
04:44<eldowan>dli: Its looking like it is. I don't have windows to boot into to physically enable it. and the button press does nothing.
04:45<dli>eldowan, you can try either Fn key, or BIOS
04:45-!-padski [] has joined #debian
04:45<eldowan>dli: button is seperate from keyboard. I'll check bios then.
04:45<dli>eldowan, it's hardware setting, not OS
04:45<dpkg>ipw3945, iwl3945 and iwl4695 will complain about the kill switch. This is either a keystroke (like Fn+F2) or a physical switch that you need to toggle to turn the radio on. When the kill switch is on, the radio is off (odd way of expressing things, isn't it?) and your network card won't work.

04:49<padski>chealer, those sound like serious issues. Are you sure that not ignoring your HDD is the cause
04:49<karnov>hi all ... i got a big problem ... my /usr is on another partition than the / and is too short for my upgrade ... but i can copy the /usr on the / where i will have enough place .... what else that modify fstab and copy /usr have i to do ?.
04:49<padski>chealer, those sound like serious issues. Are you sure that not ignoring your HDD is the cause
04:50<dli>karnov, just comment out /usr in your /etc/fstab
04:50<karnov>and that's all ?
04:50<dli>karnov, and "cp -a /usr / ;reboot"
04:51<karnov>do i have to play with skill -STOP/CONT o process if they have some dynamic library located in /usr or not ?
04:51<dli>karnov, who cares? after rebooting
04:51-!-al123 [] has joined #debian
04:51<karnov>am i oblige to reboot ?
04:51<chealer>padski: well, the cause looks like some problem with the HDD. when the HDD is plugged (and I don't use any cheat code) Debian Live doesn't boot and Windows hangs booting when loading a disk driver. of course, when I remove the HDD I can't test whether Windows works.
04:52<dli>karnov, no, but you couldn't umount the old /usr without rebooting
04:52<karnov>yes ... fu ... i'm dumb ..
04:52<dli>karnov, I guess it possible to play with chroot, but I'm not sure how to do that
04:52<karnov>thought about something like partprobe ...
04:53<padski>chealer, something like hda=none help ?
04:53<karnov>no no ... i m just dumb. .. it's true i must reboot .. nothing possible with chroot

09:50<vadmeste>padski, sorry if I derange you, thanks for all
09:50<dpkg>Your network configuration is in the file /etc/network/interfaces ; "man 5 interfaces" for docs, (zless /usr/share/doc/ifupdown/examples/network-interfaces.gz for an example). start and stop your networking with ifup -a and ifdown -a respectively.

I've just switched to mutt, however, and when it completes local addresses it's convinced that the hostname is `knoppix.' However, other processes, such as anacron, realize that the hostname is something else, though again the local mails getting sent to root are affixing @knoppix to the root address. Any ...

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
12:39<Saskwach>hey mihau, you might want to change the line in your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file that says "XkbLayout" to "pl" to make that change permanent

17:44<bjo>i just wondered how or why hard disk icons appear on the desktop when partitions are mounted on mount points other than /mnt /home /var
17:45-!-MrNaz [~MrNaz@] has quit [Read error: Operation timed out]
17:45<bjo>i have looked into the gnome-vfs-... source code, and indeed there is a "blacklist" of mount points which shouldn't appear (actually debian extends it with /usr/local and /var/tmp)
17:46<bjo>but it is all hard coded and compiled in.
17:46<bjo>why not make this configurable?
17:46<witte>bjo: i think you should ask the maintainer this
17:47<witte>bjo: probably best by making a bug report (severity whishlist)

17:49<bjo>ok, thanks, i will. it's actually in the gnome-vfs-hal-mount.c and within the orig tarball, there is const char *fhs23_toplevel_mount_points data structure
17:49-!-morph__ is now known as morph_
17:49<bjo>with all the linux standard filesystem directories.
17:49<bjo>so, probably it is the upstream maintainer, but i could ask the debian maintainer first.
17:51<bjo>i have searched the web yesterday for this "problem" and many people actually want this, other that using gconf and disable disk icons on desktop for all disk (including usb/cdrom/dvd/...)
17:51<witte>bjo: maybe there is a good reason for it, but I would know none (though my knowing is no reference ;))

21:14<brunokrebs>hi, Im trying to compile madwifi but it gives me this error: *** KERNELCONF: /lib/modules/2.6.18-5-686/build/.config does not exist.. Stop.
21:15<brunokrebs>I already installed the linux-headers and I tried to do "make *** KERNELCONF: /lib/modules/2.6.18-5-686/build/.config does not exist.. Stop.
21:15<brunokrebs>I tried make path=/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.18-5/
21:15<brunokrebs>but gives me the same error
21:15<brunokrebs>what it could be?
21:16<eldowan>brunokrebs: you probably need the headers for your kernel.
21:16<Guest877>Does anyone know if a debian 4.0 theme was released for kde and if so where i can find it (wallpaper, KDM login, bootsplash). Cheers
21:16<brunokrebs>and what does this means eldowan?
21:16<eldowan>aptitude search linux-headers-`uname -r`
21:16<eldowan>brunokrebs: ^
21:17<brunokrebs>uname -r gives me my kernel version?
21:17<eldowan>brunokrebs: uname -r will tell you what kernel you are running. (pretend 2.6.18-3)

21:24<eldowan>brunokrebs: good. now you have your kernel headers for other programs that may need them in the future. Note that if you upgrade your kernel in the future, you'll have to get the headers for madwifi to work then too.

21:54<eldowan>not now anyway.
21:54<brunokrebs>now what I really would like to know, eldowan, is how do I run a command on second plan, because when I do apt-get install, it have to download the package
21:55<brunokrebs>and it keeps showing the progress instead of leaving the command line free for me
21:55<eldowan>brunokrebs: I believe screen can help you in this. But you may also try running a second ssh window
21:55<brunokrebs>I read in a book "apt-get install blablabla &"
21:55<brunokrebs>thats what you were saying
21:56<brunokrebs>now I got it
21:56<eldowan>brunokrebs: no probs
21:57<brunokrebs>oh yes baby, I finally manage to compile madwifi
21:57<brunokrebs>or at least the "make" command
21:57<abrotman>!madwifi install
21:57<dpkg>i guess madwifi-install is ask me about <contrib> and <non-free sources>, then as root: "apt-get update && apt-get install madwifi-tools module-assistant && m-a prepare && m-a a-i madwifi && modprobe ath_pci". You should now have madwifi installed. Note: Atheros = ath0, NOT eth0.

22:27<SeveredCross>That makes no sense to me.
22:27<lontra>senseless as it may be ... it worked
22:28<SeveredCross>Did apt-get install hal start DBus like it should have?
22:28<lontra>don't remember
22:28<vook>eldowan: well it's pulling packages from etch, lenny, and sid
22:28<eldowan>vook: hmm. I noticed that it pulls from sid when the versions are identical between lenny and sid, but lenny when the versions differ.
22:30<vook>eldowan: that's what I would prefer. I only added sid so I could access a few extra packages that aren't in lenny or etch.

22:34<Guest887>SeveredCross: back again. Can you help me, I am trying to get yaboot working with usplash
22:35-!-jscinoz [] has joined #debian
22:35<SeveredCross>usplash is kernel-space, nothing to do with yaboot.
22:35-!-jscinoz [] has quit []
22:36<SeveredCross>You should be able to edit /etc/yaboot.conf and add the usplash parmeter to your kernel the issue yaboot's update command.
22:36<SeveredCross>(I forget what the command is)
22:36<Guest887>SeveredCross: Isnt usplash userland (hence the u)?
22:36<SeveredCross>Well, it's a kernel parameter that you need is what I meant.
22:36<Guest887>SeveredCross: and bootsplash kernel based?
22:36-!-sysop [] has joined #debian
22:36<Guest887>SeveredCross: Yeah I have append="quiet splash" but no love
22:38<Guest887>SeveredCross: But i have edited /etc/yaboot.conf. Is this the corect one?

23:15<stuart>ive installed cdparanoia -- do i run it in a terminal?
23:16<RIVE>Let me see, allowme a moment.
23:16<amphi>stuart: grip is a handy gtk FE for ripping and encoding; cdparanoia is a command line program
23:16<Supaplex>there's a man page I bet
23:16<stuart>amphi: is quality equivalent?
23:16<stuart>amphi: oh a frontend for cdp
23:17<amphi>stuart: eh? the 'L' in flac stands for 'lossless'
23:17<stuart>amphi: so how about EAC -- you prefer cdp?
23:18<amphi>I've not heard of EAC

23:20<stuart>amphi: string even
23:20<amphi>stuart: stick your flac encoder in there with the args you want
23:21<stuart>amphi: where do i find the possible args etc?
23:21<amphi>stuart: in the man page
23:21<RIVE>Guest887, resolution?
