02:23<pwncore>mornin slydder
02:23<pwncore>it's 11:30 pm here

02:23<Slydder>then evening to you. lol
02:24-!-rmayorga [~rmayorga@] has joined #debian
02:24<pwncore>dpkg has been hitting the jargon file, i see ;)
02:24<pwncore>ok, what is the issue
02:25<jm_>pwncore: something else holding the port - how did you configure vsftpd?
02:25<pwncore>i really didn't, but i haven't had any other ftp services running since i installed linux
02:25<jm_>look in vsftpd.conf
02:26<pwncore>i did run bastille lately and i may have configured it to be a little tighter than i thought
02:26<pwncore>oh, i just ran through that actually
02:26<pwncore>i didn't see anything i thought useful
02:26<jm_>listen= directive
02:26<pwncore>i put yes, i mean, or rather it was already there
02:26<jm_>then see what's holding the por t- netstat -nap|grep 21
02:27<bgat>will the current snapshots of the installer do root-on-md0 properly?
02:27<bgat>I keep getting hung up with the installer not being able to find grub...
02:27<pwncore>looks like it's vsftpd lol
02:27<jm_>so already running
02:27-!-gonzo [] has joined #debian
02:27<pwncore>i guess it must've started running when i installed it
02:28<gonzo>how to limit user account so they cannot use network?
02:28<jm_>that's what typically happens in Debian when you install daemons - can be adjusted by changing the policy
02:29-!-mode/#debian [+l 321] by debhelper
02:29<pwncore>ok, thanks
02:29<jm_>gonzo: you can use iptables owner module for example
02:29<gonzo>thks, thats sounds like a good approach
02:30<gonzo>how to limit user account so they cannot use usb flash device?
02:30<gonzo>like group perms?
02:30-!-sindre [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
02:31<jm_>that's one option yes
02:32-!-Aero [] has joined #debian
02:33-!-Aero [] has left #debian []
02:33<gonzo>so you can setup facl or group perms for a specific device?
02:34<jm_>mount with the right gid sounds easier
02:35-!-guess [~guess@] has joined #debian
02:35<gonzo>yeah, okay.
02:35<gonzo>would that be possible for a network card as well?

02:39<gonzo>it came up in a group discussion today and it seemed like there would be a way to do it on a per user basis but I couldn't think come up with it.
02:39-!-pete83 [] has joined #debian
02:40<pwncore>i can't seem to serve ftp in either windows or linux
02:40<pwncore>have i been coxblocked by my isp?
02:40<jm_>then there are things like SELinux, RSBAC, Tomoyo, SMACS - perhaps it can be achieved with those too
02:40-!-elsa22 [] has quit []
02:43<gonzo>I've spend most of my time thinking in terms of more access rather than less. Thanks for your insight
02:43<jm_>no worries
02:44<dpkg>Well, apperantly the fax was concieved of by Napoleon Bonaparte. He commissioned a system of devices that could transmit a traced image electrically over telegraph lines to a remote device that would redraw the image identically.

03:34<radoo>hello! a question: is it possible to reinstall grub after a windows installation? if yes, how? thank you!
03:34<lockoff>at the end they say I should remove faulty package with dpkg thats preventing apt from reinstaling it. how do I find out which one?
03:35<gsimmons>!tell radoo -about fixmbr
03:35<lockoff>I could pastebin you some logs if you think itll help

03:35<kmap>Well, I am not sure...
03:35-!-tonio [] has quit []
03:36<lockoff>Xorg.0.log reports some bad font folder sources, think X11 and so
03:36<kmap>You could just try forcefully removing the package which causes the issue, and use apt to fix thins
03:36<lockoff>and truetype also
03:36<kmap>lockoff: You can try installing x-window-system-core gnome-core
03:36<kmap>And then kdm/gdm
03:37<radoo>what does this mean: "then mount your root filesystem"? c
03:37<radoo>c:\ or g:\-the linux partition?
03:39<lockoff>so is there some package checking tool?

03:39-!-Jimx [~Jimx@] has joined #debian
03:40<kmap>lockoff: apt is supposed to resolve these dependencies itself. I am unsure how you got into this mess, but most likely cause is unreliable external repository
03:40<kmap>So, if you are able to remove the package(s) causing trouble and reinstall the same from official repos, you should be back on track
03:41<radoo>how can i find which /sda contains my linux install?
03:41<kmap>radoo: If you are on Linux, try typing mount
03:42<radoo>just "mount"?
03:42<kmap>Yes, but you seem to be not on Windows
03:42<radoo>yes, i am on linux- i used the supergrub floppy
03:42<lockoff>how do I find out which ones to remove? all Xorg, gdm, and all thoses?
03:43<kmap>lockoff: Unsure, but use apt-get install -f, and remove the first package which causes trouble while removing
03:43-!-Jimx [~Jimx@] has left #debian []
03:43<kmap>radoo: then try fdisk -l /dev/sda
03:43<kmap>radoo: That lists the partitions available, and you may be able to identify your root
03:44<radoo>ok, thank you
03:44<lockoff>how do I see it if it scrolls off screen?

04:01<kapil>jm_: dpkg (and most write ups) do not mention the use of bind-mounts to copy filesystems (like root with devfs/udev).
04:01<jm_>kapil: why would bind mounts matter?
04:02<kapil>imho, copying root should be done as follows. mount --bind / /root/source; mount /dev/sda1 /root/target; find+cpio pipeline. this way /dev gets copied "correctly".
04:02<jm_>it doesn't really matter, cp copies /dev correctly
04:03<kapil>otherwise you end up excluding /dev entirely and you have to create std devices "by hand" (if you are running udev).

Second, another computer, I shut my computer off and then when I restart, the screen say it can't operate at this resolution or somet

06:51<clone>jm_, not sure, well I don't have that computer anymore, I traded for another one, and it won't start now, it is hardware issue, I guess power supply. Well, at least its not so bad as a harddrive failure, like with Windows
06:52<clone>jm_ if I unplug harddrive, cdrom and floppy, it work, but if I plug them back in it starts for 5secs and shutsdown. THat means powersupply is weak eh? Or could be motherboard is shortcurcuit?

10:41<Axel-Akad>Hi Anybody! Seems My System OR some Debian-Etch Packages got a Problem with a MISSING Configuration-File. ill explain here
10:41<Axel-Akad>i wanted to setup LAMP on my Debian Etch (up to date). using apt-get install apache2 mysql mysql-php5 php5 etc etc..
10:42-!-luisa [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
10:42<Axel-Akad>after that Apache, mysql and PHP been up and running! BUT... PHP did not load the MySQL Extension my default!
10:42<Axel-Akad>there is a dirextory /etc/php5/apache2/conf.d that SHOULD contain additional config-files for PHP to load at startup.
10:43-!-bjoern1102 [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
10:43-!-fridim [] has joined #debian
10:43<Axel-Akad>since i installed PHP5, MYSQL and all the crap you usualy need for a LAMP there should be a "mysql.ini" file in that directory..
10:43<Axel-Akad>but ITS NOT THERE!
10:43<Axel-Akad>So what ?!
10:44<Axel-Akad>Any information why this file is missing there?
10:44<KeDaO>hi all, i want to resolve a problem, i have a linux box as a firewall, behind it i have 4 real servers doing LAMP (Linux Apache Mysql Postfix) all works fine, but when i want to send an e-mail from internal server1 ( to internal server2 ( it always return "connection refused" i think something wrong its in my iptables, the firewall have all the publics ip eth0-> eth0:1 -> etc and wh
10:44<KeDaO>en a packet comes i do a prenat sentence and fordwars the packet to the internal server (, i think may be i have to put a rule on the INPUT table to say "whe a packet comes from to redirect to or what? thanks
10:45<seanius>Axel-Akad: dpkg -l php5-mysql ?
10:45<Supaplex>Axel-Akad: the mysql php extension is a php.ini setting
10:45<Axel-Akad>returns: ii php5-mysql 5.2.0-8+etch10 MySQL module for php5
10:46<Axel-Akad>Supaplex: the point is.. a) there is NO WORD in the php-mysql or ANY php documentation that came with it (/usr/share/doc) saying i need to edit the php.ini
10:47<seanius>oh, this is etch. does etch even support conf.d for php?
10:47<Supaplex>:/etc/php4/apache$ grep php.ini
10:47<Supaplex>if you think it needs to be changed, file a bug report
10:47<Axel-Akad>anyone would expect that on a modular installation there comes a proper config-file right OUT-OF-THE-BOX.. but it does not.
10:48<Supaplex>that's nice.
10:48<Supaplex>generally I agree, but I'm not the package maintainer.
10:48<seanius>Axel-Akad: dpkg -L php5-mysql | grep ini
10:48<Axel-Akad>so my question to the channel here is -- is this a WELL KNOW COMMON BUG or is it just local to my system ?!?!
10:48<Supaplex>it might be by design
10:49<Supaplex>!tell Axel-Akad about bts
10:49<seanius>Supaplex: it should "work out of the box"
10:49<Supaplex>I'll let the package maintainer argue that
10:49<seanius>Supaplex: er...
10:50-!-rkos [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
10:50<Axel-Akad> <<<<<<<< so there is the config file within ;)) but not on my system
10:50<Supaplex>there might be a reason for this. the package has worked this way for years and multiple release cycles
10:51<Axel-Akad>thats the point why im so courious about it!! this is a common setup.. but not many seem to have this problem
10:52<seanius>Axel-Akad: was this a brand new installation, or did you upgrade from a previous release / use backports / use dotdeb / etc ?\
10:52<Axel-Akad>some suggestion about what we do have here ? like shows there is the file included in the package.. however it does not install to my sys
10:53<seanius>Axel-Akad: what about in /etc/php5/conf.d
10:53<seanius>the apache2 dir should only have a symlink
10:53<Axel-Akad>seanius: well.. its not brandnew.. as far i remember i installed it when debian sarge was still TESTING. through apt-get upgrades and all it made its way to stable, then etch-testing, and etch-stable (now)
10:54<seanius>Axel-Akad: did you just recently install the LaMP stuff or have you had it for a while and upgraded it?
10:54<seanius>it could be that php5-mysql was installed first and didn't see apache2 installed and thus didn't set up the symlink
10:54<Supaplex>configuration files are not listed that way.
10:54-!-padski [] has joined #debian
10:55<Axel-Akad>seanius: symlink confirmed: lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 9 2008-02-20 11:31 conf.d -> ../conf.d
10:56<seanius>oh, that's right, it's the directory that's symlinked not the config file
10:56<Supaplex>dpkg -s <pkg> will show conffiles.
10:56<dpkg>You Fool! <pkg> will show conffiles. is installed!
10:56<Axel-Akad>seanius: after all the problems i removed all the packages first to make system clean. purged config files, /etc etc. even by hand where it left something over

10:56<seanius>Axel-Akad: aha, that might be the problem

11:02<Axel-Akad>ROFL! no way :) i know how to use rm ;)
11:03<Axel-Akad>but the idea of yours..that the ORDER of installing the packages MAYBE is not doing well my default
11:03<Axel-Akad>so i guess we will have to install mysql, php and apache first and
11:03<Axel-Akad>install php5-mysql after all
11:03<seanius>Axel-Akad: i think i was wrong on that, the order shouldn't matter
11:04<seanius>except that you may manually need to restart apache if it's installed before php5-mysql
11:04<Axel-Akad>but why then is it here now ?!
11:04<seanius>Axel-Akad: because it was removed manually at some point and the package was never fully purged
11:04<seanius>i would guess
11:05<seanius>i.e. install foo, rm conffile, remove foo, install foo results in conffile still missing
11:05-!-Johanna [johanna@] has joined #debian
11:05<seanius>unless you purge foo when you remove it
11:05<Axel-Akad>since i used -purge AND since i purge my HAND after all that it should be enough.. i had /etc/php and /apache ALL removed by hand (after apt-install -remove -purge)

13:56<dpkg>methinks downgrade is not possible with apt-get currently. No future support is anticipated. Some programs change the binary format of their files in a way that cannot be rolled back later, and package maintainer scripts provide ways to upgrade to new config file formats but not ways to downgrade. You can always try to downgrade a package using dpkg -i <olderversion.deb>.

14:55<bchoward>question: I have a remote system (so I can only ssh in), and I'm trying to upgrade the kernel from 2.6.14 to the lastest, which I've already built and installed with dpkg. My grub menu.lst seems to be in order, and the default boot option is 0, but whenever I reboot, it keeps loading the old kernel
14:55<bchoward>any suggestions?
14:56<bchoward>the grub boot list has my new kernel as the first option, and the one it keeps loading is third on the list
14:56-!-byhomne [~byhomne@] has quit []
14:57<witte>bchoward: did you run grub-install
14:58<bchoward>I ran grub-update after dpkg -i on the new kernel
14:58<bchoward>witte: before my recent attemps, the system had been up for over a year
14:58<witte>ok,, i think that should be good enough
14:59<bchoward>does grub log to anywhere?
14:59<witte>bchoward: are the links to /boot/vmlinux etc correct
15:00<bchoward>witte, yes - /boot/vmlinuz- is in my file, and exists in the right place in /boot
15:00<bchoward>I don't have a separate boot filesystem - it's just a folder on my root
15:01<bchoward>the /vmlinuz symlink points to my latest kernel 2.6.24 as well
15:01<witte>bchoward: can you upload your menu.lst so that we can have a look (just to check if you didn't overlook anything)
15:01<bchoward>but I'm pretty sure it's not being used
15:01<dpkg>Do not paste more than 3 lines to this channel. Instead, use: or or for pics. Remember to tell us the URL of your paste!

16:21<ignu>I should have been more specific... I know most people in here will probably not use a graphical program for that, but if you did, what graphical program? :-)
16:21<weasel>tar in an xterm?
16:21<weasel>maybe, just maybe mc.
16:21<weasel>I wouldn't know what else to use.
16:21<rela>yep, mc is nice
16:22<ignu>cool, thx :-)

16:30<maspix>Answer to my question a few dozen lines up: You have to make sure you trail the mount --bind call will trailing /'s e.g.: mount --bind /dev/ /home/dev/; mount --bind /dev /home/dev = WRONG

16:31<maspix>it returns the error: "mount: mount point /home/comp-trorion/shared-data does not exis"
16:31<maspix>if you include the trailing foward slashes it works

16:33<maspix>weasel: I don't know, all three of my debian systems exhibit the same behaviour, so I really just think it is a fussy call.
16:33-!-syekiya [] has joined #debian
16:34<weasel>maspix: doubt it. probably a weird combination of whatever you are doing and your fstab or whatever.
16:34<weasel>hard to tell if you don't paste the real example.
16:34<maspix>mount: special device /home/comp-trorion/shared-data does not exist
16:34<weasel>(also, why anybody would want to bind mount around /dev I don't get anyway)
16:34<maspix>I was using it as in example
16:34<weasel>maspix: and what's the mount call you use when you get that?
16:35<maspix>It comes up when you are trying to chroot a ftp session since symlinks don't work.
16:35<syekiya>Hi there, I need help. I have 2 computers, one computer (this one) has Debian, and this computer has 2 NIC cards, one goes to another computer, and one goes to my modem, how can I get this computer to assign the other computer an IP address so it can connect to the internet and to this computer VIA SSH, etc ?
16:35<weasel>maspix: why on earth would you put a whole dev into the ftp chroot. dev/null should suffice, if you need it.
16:35<maspix>/home/comp-trorion/files# mount --bind /var/shared-data /home/comp-trorion/shared-data

16:40<maspix>weasel: I did it with the directory as a symlink (accident), just as a unique directory, then removed the directory entirely and still got that error ( mount: mount point /home/comp-trorion/shared-data does not exist ), but as soon as I put the trailing slashes in (mount --bind /var/shared-data/ /home/comp-trorion/files/shared-data/

16:40-!-linkslice [] has joined #debian
16:41<linkslice>ok so i'm kind of new to debian, and I saw on the security announce list that there is a kernel update, but I'm unsure how to apply it
16:41<weasel>maspix: the directory needs to exist. mkdir it.
16:41<syekiya>linkslice: I believe all you do it: apt-get upgrade
16:42<linkslice>syekiya, but that would want to upgrade everything, would that break my mysql installation?
16:42<linkslice>i was nervous to run the upgrade command because I don't want to break anything
16:43<syekiya>Sorry, I'm not sure, I'm new myself. So, I'm not sure.
16:43<syekiya>I'm about to just go back to Windows.... I can't figure out stuff I need figured out.
16:44<maspix>weasel: yeah it works now, I just was sharing that it was odd and did not work in a fashion I expected and there was no note in the manual about it
16:44<dkr>linkslice: you could run aptitude -u and browse through the available updates and only choose the ones you want to upgrqde now

19:05<syekiya>I need to get my DHCP server to listen on eth1.
19:07<maspix>syekiya: This is more of a general connectivity thing, are you *DIRECTLY* connected to the second computer or are you going through a switch. (What I really mean is, are you in a situation where you have to use a crossover cable?)

19:09<gsimmons>syekiya: Once you've resolved your issue, amend /etc/default/dhcp-server to specify your desired interface.
19:09<maspix>syekiya: A crossover cable is the same as a normal cat5, but it has some of the wires done in a different order
19:09<amphi>many modern cards don't need a xover cable
19:10<amphi>syekiya: if you need one, the ethernet howto has instructions for making them
19:10<eheil>What happens here when i boot my U2 is that the firmware refuses to recognize the CD media as a bootable target..
19:10<syekiya>Well, my settup works on Window bridging the two network cards together.
19:10<Ouroboros>we wouldnt be having this problem at all if the retards who designed ethernet didnt make two types of ports...
19:11<maspix>There is that oddball serial one too
19:11-!-eheil [] has left #debian []
19:11<maspix>I honestly forget the name of it, but it's to configure switches and routers and that sort of thing.
19:12<Ouroboros>not sure what you are talking about
19:12<syekiya>Ouroboros: That files does not exsist...
19:12<Ouroboros>maspix: you mean RS232 over CAT5 ?
19:12<syekiya>Shall I explain my situation a little more in detail?
19:12<Ouroboros>syekiya: no... try connecting through a hub/switch instead
19:13<Ouroboros>syekiya: if you dont have link lights, most likely the cable is wrong (is the interface up?)
19:13<syekiya>The interface was down, when I do ifconfig eth1 up, it goes up, but with no address or anything.
19:13<maspix>so it's not defined in /etc/network/interfaces?
19:14<syekiya>Let me look.
19:14<Ouroboros>put it into interfaces and use "ifup eth1" instead
19:15<syekiya>It is indeed not in the interfaces file..
19:15<Ouroboros>maspix: yeah those custom RJ-45 ports are a travesty.... i have also seen graphics cards with such ports that use them for sync and what not, among other things
19:15<Ouroboros>maspix: almost fried a card one time by plugging a network cable in
19:15-!-lockoff [] has left #debian []
19:15<syekiya>How do I "put it into interfaces"?
19:15<Ouroboros>syekiya: you should have eth0 there already, use it as an example
19:16<Ouroboros>syekiya: also 'man interfaces'
19:16<maspix>Ouroboros: ouch, but yeah the third type is a rollover cable. I had to look it up though.
19:16<Ouroboros>also anyone ever notice that USB-A plugs fit into RJ-45 jacks exactly width-wise? another disaster
19:17<maspix>Ouroboros: Job security I guess.

19:19<Ouroboros>i am not sure why people think that using RJ-45 ports for non-ethernet is a good idea... they are not particularly good jacks anyway
19:19<Ouroboros>syekiya: do you have lights now?
19:19<syekiya>No, I do not.
19:19<Ouroboros>then you need a hub or crossover
19:20<maspix>why don't you take cable from the nic that is lit up
19:20<maspix>and stick it in the other one
19:20<maspix>and just see if it lights up
19:20<syekiya>It does.
19:20<syekiya>I've tried that.
19:20<maspix>Yeah, then you need a hub or crossover :(
19:20<Ouroboros>do you have a switch?
19:20<maspix>(or switch)
19:20<syekiya>Both cards work, because I've "bridged" in Windows.
19:20<syekiya>No, I do not.
19:21<Ouroboros>you could try making a cable, but its a pita without a proper crimper
19:21<maspix>On a side note I just wish the RJ-45s were more forgiving in how the plugs have to get put together. :(

19:22<syekiya>Ok. I'll be right back, I'm going to see something.
19:22<maspix>or if you want to be specific if the colours of the tiny wires go as follows: orange-white, orange, green-white, blue, blue-white, green, brown-white, brown it's *** NOT *** a crossover (probably all of them actually.)

19:25<syekiya>Ok, Am I still here?

19:28<syekiya>Ok, so what I did was change the ports, so they were revesed. All lights went on, but, eth1 wasn't getting the internet, even though it was assigned an IP address.
19:28<maspix>syekiya: did you use dhcp for it?
19:29<maspix>Just asking, in case this is a case of static ip snafuage.
19:29<syekiya>What do you mean?
19:29<maspix>When you editted /etc/network/interfaces, did you define eth1 as static or a dhcp call?
19:29<Ouroboros>syekiya: you connected the secondary port to your internet link? you need to set eth1 exactly as eth0 and do "ifdown eth0" then
19:30<Ouroboros>syekiya: and check what "route" says
19:30<maspix>Ouroboros is right, and I could only suspect that since you didn't ifdown eth0 the routing table got messed
19:30<syekiya>Ok. I'll try it again.
19:30<syekiya>Be right back.
19:30<Ouroboros>or just go buy a cable :)

22:35<Staz>you could write a script that parses a webpage that gives you your external PC. Depending on your setup you might be able to telnet into your gateway device and look at the IP assigned to the ppp interface.
22:36<Staz>or use SNMP to get interface information from the appropriate device.
22:37<k-man>i was just wondering if there was some already written thing that comes with debian
22:37<k-man>doesn't matter
22:37<k-man>it was a one of need
22:37<k-man>i found it another way
22:37<Staz>s/external PC/external IP/

22:54<silent>kapil, it's global
22:54<silent>kapil, it's not part of gnome hotkeys either
22:54<silent>ort xbindkeys
22:54<kapil>silent: window manager perhaps
22:55<silent>kapil, I only have flux and ... whatever gnome uses by default, 2 cannot run at once
22:55<kapil>then look in the config file for flux
22:56<silent>kapil, it's launching bash
22:57<kapil>the default window manager for gnome used to be metacity.
22:59<SeveredCross>Still is.
23:00<silent>ok, this wouldn't be a metacity prob then?
23:00<kapil>silent: could very well be
23:00<silent>kapil, fun
23:01<kapil>most win-mans will have a hotkey for starting a terminal "just in case" the user enters the window manager and the menu system fails.
