01:37<TheBurningShadow>ok, so we're not in an ideal world
01:37<Ouroboros>they have a name for that, i think... i believe its "communism"
01:37<TheBurningShadow>now what
01:37<alaya>our minds and hearts were not designed to differentiate and dissect artificial distinctions between synthetic constructs relating to living
01:38<TheBurningShadow>who says?
01:39<alaya>terms like communism are like applying cartesian math to metaphysics
01:39-!-mire_ [] has joined #debian
01:39<alaya>within such confining systems there is not even a possibility for the existence of ways to indicate meaning and comportment

01:42<TheBurningShadow>it will head no were...
01:43<vook>alaya: ok - career advice - be a teacher/professor...
01:43<TheBurningShadow>you have control of your facualties
01:44<TheBurningShadow>next subject......
01:45<alaya>vook: that is actually appealing, but totally not possible with my background unfortunately. i live in the US - which should be some indication of the appallling "education" system
01:46<TheBurningShadow> now we know what country
01:46<alaya>hehe :-)
01:46<TheBurningShadow>nothing more needed
01:47<vook>alaya: yeah - I too. I hear you though - many ways to give, it's hard to find the most balanced and rewarding way.
01:47<alaya>TheBurningShadow: early middle-aged is that specific enough?
01:47<vook>TheBurningShadow: comon now.
01:48-!-Schreck2 is now known as Schreck
01:48<TheBurningShadow>if you look at everything through eyes that are shaded..then thats what you'll see
01:48<Ouroboros>alaya: remember that commercial for some state? i think new mexico? went something like "maybe you are in the right state of mind... just the wrong state"
01:48<alaya>Ouroboros: hehe. that's funny
01:49<alaya>but very possibly true.
01:49<TheBurningShadow>anyone can live anywhere...remember what yado said to luke when asked what was in the forest...
01:49<TheBurningShadow>yoda, "only what you take with you"
01:50<TheBurningShadow>if you have fear in your heart, then thats what you'll find
01:50<TheBurningShadow>everything you'll be afraid of
01:50<TheBurningShadow>you get what's in your heart
01:50-!-mire_ [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
01:50<Ouroboros>that is partially true, but certainly our environment makes a big difference on our perception of reality
01:50<Ouroboros>put a polar bear in the desert, and it will never be happy there
01:51<TheBurningShadow>if dispair...then you'll have a dispairing heart
01:51<alaya>if you had a choice between being a corporal in a really big, strong army, or a general in a tiny one, which would you pick?
01:51-!-grim_fandango [] has quit [Quit: Ex-Chat]
01:51<TheBurningShadow>key word is chance
01:52<TheBurningShadow>hyperthetical questions get us no place
01:52<alaya>choice not chance
01:52<vook>I'd be a general in a tiny army, as long as the climate is nice.
01:52<TheBurningShadow>or choice...but lets not deal in "a maybe reality"
01:52<TheBurningShadow>what's the deal?
01:52-!-freealan [] has joined #debian
01:52<alaya>whose dealing in maybes?
01:53<alaya>vook: the climate is nice
01:53<TheBurningShadow>is that your choice...
01:54<vook>my turn-signals don't work in my current climate (vook's troubles exposed)
01:54<Ouroboros>i got it right :P

01:56<Ouroboros>i thought Supaplex was talking about scientology
01:56<alaya>its sad that this channel is so dead
01:57<Supaplex>*BUZZER* wrong. :P
01:57<Ouroboros>vook: yeah, what the hell was that?
01:57<alaya>only seems to get active when a lot of europeans are using it which is very early morning for US
01:57<vook>we get lame advertisements in here sometimes. I don't know. I didn't look in to it.
01:57<Ouroboros>probably some IE exploit
01:58<alaya>i want to have a projector projecting irc onto my ceiling so i can lay in bed and watch it scroll by
01:59<alaya>wouldn't that be awesome?
01:59<vook>alaya: you are a super uber nerd! ya, it'd be awesome...

02:16<Kharn>hmm .. I should start a blog ...
02:17<alaya>fwiw, here's a really cool article on named pipes (still OT but hopefully slightly less so):
02:18<Ouroboros>nice, always wondered how to do that

02:22<vook>I'm currently trying to figure out how to pull data from several different links on a university website (within an instructor login). It's kind of a mess of an web session - sessions encapsulated within sessions (based on ASP). my wget script just keeps pulling the login page.
02:22<vook>It's like a I need wget to login to a form, save some cookies, and then start pulling the data.
02:23<simonrvn>wget can handle auth
02:23<jm_>sounds like a job for perl
02:23<Ouroboros>epiphany + java Robot :)
02:23-!-GhostlyDeath [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
02:23<alaya>vook: wget or perl LWP maybe?
02:23<simonrvn>though i think only if it's via a 401
02:24-!-shagi [~shagi@] has joined #debian
02:24<vook>ack! I know it can be done :) I just don't know how to do it.
02:24<jm_>perl merchanize module by the sound of it
02:25<vook>simonrvn: what do you mean "auth" ? I'm sending --http-user, etc..

02:25-!-phiq [~phiq@] has left #debian []
02:26<vook>simonrvn: ok - yeah. I'm coming to see that it isn't http-authorization. http://user:pass@site doesn't work either.
02:27<jm_>curl can do forms too
02:27<vook>thanks for the suggestions.

03:21<Ouroboros>when you uploaded the video, did you upload the full-resolution one?
03:22<Ouroboros>you might do better by rescaling it yourself
03:22-!-Invert314 [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
03:22<Ouroboros>it looks like their scaling algorithm is not that great
03:22<Katya>scale on a higher res?
03:22<Katya>or to
03:23<Katya>it wont work
03:23<Katya>i think
03:23<Ouroboros>i mean if you know that google will scale to 320x240 or whatever, scale to that resolution yourself
03:23<Ouroboros>it might look better then
03:24<Katya>can i tell that to ffmpeg?
03:24<Katya>lemme see
03:24<Ouroboros>i use avisynth for that, but its win32 only

03:27<Ouroboros>well ffmpeg outputs avis
03:27<Katya>that's what i am thinking of doing

06:42<jm_>bcochofel: no, with the type specified via -t switch
06:42<jm_>Woet: umask is negation
06:43-!-Caino [] has joined #debian
06:43<bcochofel>jm_: well, I did mkfs /dev/sdb1, then mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt
06:43<bcochofel>no errors
06:43<Woet>jm_: i just need the umask of chmod 666, am i asking that much?
06:44<jm_>Woet: am I asking that much in trying to get you to think about what's on wikipedia and apply to your example? or to apply my example?
06:44<jm_>really, it's not about it being "much" - if I thought it was, I wouldn't bother helping you
06:44<bcochofel>jm_: I can copy files and all with no problems
06:44<bcochofel>jm_: My problem is that the mp3 reader doesn't read ext2 :(
06:45<Woet>Like i said before jm_, i read wikipedia, i read your explaination

06:45<a4ndr3c>hi witch command tells me my distrubution
06:46<jm_>bcochofel: ok, try to format it in windows, then mount it in Linux
06:46<Woet>jm_: is 000 the same as 666 in chmod?
06:47<jm_>a4ndr3c: lsb_release
06:47<jm_>Woet: it will give you the same result, yes
06:47<Woet>Thank you.
06:47<kmap>a4ndr3c: cat /etc/ as well
06:47<bcochofel>jm_: one more thing. Using autofs and auto.removable how can I tell fstype to auto?
06:48<jm_>bcochofel: you don't need to tell it, mount will figure it out on its own

06:51<jm_>AndyJ: device busy means something is keeping files open, pretty weird at that point
06:52<jm_>bcochofel: then use -fstype=auto
06:52<AndyJ>jm_: The only odd thing I can think of is a symlink from the user's folder to this device...
06:53<jm_>AndyJ: lsof/fuser will tell you which it is

06:55<jm_>bcochofel: check the logs
06:55<victor>document viewer and gnome terminal are automatically lauched on start up, why?
06:55<bcochofel>mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdb1,
06:56<victor>they're not included in the startup programs.
06:56<jm_>bcochofel: does it work if you do it manually?

07:10<ali28>i have the whole root encrypted
07:10<jm_>AndyJ: no, just check what lsof says when umount is called from init scripts
07:11<ali28>and i'm running unstable

07:20<kapil>ali28: no. the luks system is a way to store the data on the initial block of the disk. look at cryptsetup man page.
07:21<ali28>i'm not sure if i'm using luks, i'm sure i'm using encryption over lvm
07:22<kapil>ali28: that does not solve your problem right now! for you currently you find the key on the backed-up initrd and put it in the same place on the new initrd and make sure that the scripts exist.
07:22<ali28>luks is when you mount an encrypted image on loop ?
07:23<kapil>ali28: not all encrypted images are luks images. some keep the key externally like yours seems to do.

07:37<Gekz>so, gdm or console login?
07:37<Gekz>i'm trying to decide
07:39<ecto>if you're planning on running X at all, I'd run gdm (or kdm, etc.)
07:39<ecto>Gekz: ^^^
07:39<ecto>cleaner than running startx, IMO
07:39<Gekz>it's not rocket science to type startxfce4 like I have been for the past 3 years

07:40-!-blubberdiblub [] has joined #debian
07:40<ecto>Gekz: no, it's not rocket science. but if you ever anticipate a non-technical user accessing your machine (as guest, or whatever), having gdm running will be more friendly
07:41-!-rahuljk2002 [~rahul@] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
07:41<ecto>also, running gdm can help you separate whether it's an actual X server config problem, or a problem with your login environment

07:43<ecto>nub question: If I installed my debian system ver 4.0r2, and I want to upgrade to 4.0r3, it's as simple as "sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade", right?
07:45<ecto>what's the latest kernel version I can get in 4.0r3? I was on a customer's system, and they had 2.6.22, whereas even after the upgrade I only have 2.6.18 available. Of course, I'm not 100% that system was etch, so that may be the discrepancy...

09:40<shamess>Right, so how do I upgrade non-security updates in programs (are they called binaries, aren't they?)?
09:40<petemc>shamess: look for backports if you feel you need more up to date packages
09:41<petemc>Freedom: rndc reload will reload zone files

09:44<shamess>I'm a little confused. "Backports are recompiled packages from testing (mostly) and unstable (in a few cases only, e.g. security updates)" Isn't that talking about unstable stuff? I just want to upgrade to nano 2.0.7...
09:44<petemc>no, backports arent upgrading

10:40<dpkg>rumour has it, init.d is where most Debian startup scripts go. To add your own, copy /etc/init.d/skeleton to myscript and make it do the appropriate thing on start and stop, at least. Then "update-rc.d myscript default". See "man update-rc.d" and /usr/share/doc/sysvinit and /etc/init.d/README. Also ask me about <bootmisc><rc.local><runlevel>

13:13<Marou>need halp with apt, what happened is I was looking for an easy way to get the java JDK and I linked in a repository without realizing it was testing. When it went to pull down, I stopped it, but not before it had gotten 3 packages. Now I need to fix the 3 packages back to the stable version. Output here on apt-get upgrade:
13:13<azeem>Marou: did you run apt-get update again after your reverted to stable?
13:15<Marou>I ran apt-get update, it completes with no problems
13:15<azeem>Marou: pastebin the output of "apt-cache policy binutils" as well

13:26<azeem>Marou: basically, apt never downgrades packages, so you have to manually override with the (in this case stable) version you need
13:26<azeem>which is done by adding =1234.4. after the package to force a specific version
13:27<Marou>Groovy, I was going to try and use dpkg to try and force downgrade to the versions I knew worked but was scared I might jack up my system so I figured I'd check here first

13:31<Marou>I have another question, since I'm here...maybe someone will know the answer. On my machine (macbook pro, core duo, circa 2006) when I boot into X, I have no speaker output, but headphones work. Interestingly, when I unplug my headphones my speakers start working, like it causes something somewhere to be recognized. Has anyone figured out how to make this init (or whatever is happening) fire automagically in the current stable deb?

16:34<norbert_>hi, kdenlive (non-linear video editing) 0.5 has been out for >6 months and still isn't in stable
16:34<norbert_>I want to continue to use stable, but also want 0.5
16:34<norbert_> doesn't have it
16:34<norbert_>any ideas?
16:34<dkr>backport it yourself :)
16:34<petemc>stable never gets new software
16:35<norbert_>(I tried compiling the darn thing a couple of months ago, but it uses so many libraries that I had to reinstall Debian after everything messed up)
16:35<norbert_>petemc: yeah, I noticed that, but I don't understand it either
16:35<norbert_>6 months is so much
16:36<dondelelcaro>norbert_: 6 months isn't much time at all, actually.
16:36<dondelelcaro>norbert_: if you need specific software, you just backport it, or have someone backport it
16:36<chealer>norbert_: ask to/pay someone for packaging it?
16:36<norbert_>they are releasing 0.7 in march, that gives you an impression of how long it is
16:36<petemc>you think debian releases should keep up with yoour favourite package?
16:37<norbert_>petemc: yes, I do
16:37<norbert_>if they can't, they should drop packages
16:37<dondelelcaro>norbert_: oh, all software is constantly moving forward, but there are a lot of people who can't afford to upgrade every 6 months, nor can we actually make a release every 6 months that lives up to the quality that we require.
16:37<dondelelcaro>norbert_: and no, droping packages isn't a solution either.
16:37<norbert_>why isn't dropping packages a solution, Debian has what... about 26 thousand packages? it would free some time?
16:38<dondelelcaro>norbert_: because people who package those packages want them to be in Debian.
16:38-!-eRoX [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
16:38<dondelelcaro>norbert_: they want to spend their time having them in Debian.

16:39<dondelelcaro>norbert_: everyone who works on Debian is a volunteer and works on things they want to work on. If the packages that they actually use aren't included in Debian, then they won't work on Debian at all.
16:39<norbert_>okay, I have another question though... how can kdenlive 0.5 be in testing even though it is >6 months old... is it still not ready for stable? (not tested enough... or?)
16:39<dondelelcaro>norbert_: software in testing only migrates to stable when we make a stable release.
16:40<norbert_>why is that?
16:40<dondelelcaro>norbert_: because otherwise stable wouldn't be stable.
16:40<norbert_>because it could break other packages
16:40<dondelelcaro>it'd be some version of testing with more testing
16:41<dondelelcaro>norbert_: or introduce new features, or require new libraries that requires new packages, etc. In sort, it could break anyone who is using the system in production.
16:41<chealer>norbert_: uh, kdenlive 0.5 isn't in testing.
16:41-!-HellTiger [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
16:41<norbert_>chealer: why not? ;-)
16:41<norbert_>I would say kdenlive and kino are the two most used video editing packages

19:28<abrotman>you'd have to uninstall KDE i guess ... not sure which bug he was trying to fix

19:28<ZeuZ>Though, the bug is about KDM Manager not able to load, whenever I go to administrator mode, it just keeps telling @loading@ and then closes itself...
19:29<ZeuZ>SID was not functioning properly for me, so I formatted and went to Lenny, but I don't wanna do that again... neither loose my modified things...

20:23<hachi>I'm so tired of trying to pin things and do dist-upgrades and whatnot
20:23<abrotman>bah ..
20:24<wayneward>think i used to have rpm installs etc on a redhat box from webmin
20:24<hachi>I really want a way to say 'upgrade all packages except for this list [supplied], and hold those for me to do later''
20:24<wayneward>is there nothing on webmin for apt?
20:24<dondelelcaro>hachi: so put them on hold and upgrade what you want.
20:24<hachi>mostly because upgrading things like mysql or openldap have a nasty tendancy to break every single time I upgrade them
20:24<Xenguy>hachi: you should be able to set certain apps on 'hold', yes?
20:24<dondelelcaro>wayneward: you shouldn't use webmin.
20:25<hachi>what 'holds' them?
20:25<dpkg>hold is a status flag which tells apt (or aptitude) not to automatically upgrade a package. To hold a package, 'echo pkgname hold|dpkg --set-selections', or 'aptitude hold package', or use = in aptitude's curses interface. You can ignore a hold by using apt-get install foopkg; or by using + in aptitude's curses interface. [Note that this is *NOT* the same as packages which have been "held back" for dependency reasons.]
20:25*hachi goes digging
20:25<wayneward>no i dont im just suggesting it I use a terminal thats it
20:25<dpkg>it has been said that webmin is a lame web-based interface for unsafe system administration for Unix. Check it out at Remember, dondelelcaro *hates* webmin. "i'd rather sit on the floor shoving table knives into live electrical outlets than run webmin on an exposed server." See about the removal. Don't use their .debs, they are of extremely poor quality.
20:25<hachi>ugh... okay

20:28<wayneward>could do with a good howto for getting debian on the asus 701 the one i followed doesnt work to well!
20:28<hachi>I have serious issues where my initrd/initramfs will stop working when I upgrade libc on my debian box
20:28<hachi>it happens roughly every single time I upgrade libc
20:29<wayneward>hachi this stop you from booting at all?
20:29<hachi>I then have to rescue boot from something else, set up my chroot, and do an update-initramfs -k all -u or something
20:29<hachi>yeah, it usually does
20:29-!-allisterb [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
20:29<wayneward>yes i had the same problem yesterday on a live server
20:29<hachi>it has a habit of hanging during device detection or something, lvm wont' start up or something
20:29<hachi>but this has happened like 8 times in the last 2 months for me
20:30<wayneward>not good
20:30<hachi>I really shouldn't be having this much of an issue, right?
20:30<hachi>but what really bugs me is, I don't see what's so wrong with me upgrading libc that causes this
20:30<abrotman>you could run 'stab'e
20:30<wayneward>not really are you stable

20:31<abrotman>wayneward: you're
20:31<hachi>wayneward: seriously, I shouldn't have this issue even in testing, so the thing I'm wondering is... why am I running into it
20:32<hachi>why does upgrading libc outside the initramfs kill the initramfs?
20:32<hachi>the initramfs is there before the filesystems are even mounted
20:32<hachi>so it shouldn't have any impact on it
20:32<wayneward>can you not upgrade then run update-initramfs
20:32<wayneward>before reboot
20:33<hachi>wayneward: somewhat often it still doesn't work, like init is holding the DSO open or something

20:56<hachi>ZeuZ: show me an example of how to use grep to yank out the correct one
20:56<dondelelcaro>hachi: and you can be explicit by using apt-file, which will give you perl-modules if you sarch for Test/
20:56<hachi>apt-cache search POE
20:56<hachi>there you go
20:56<hachi>that's a good example perl module

20:57<dondelelcaro>hachi: and you can still search for if you're totally lost

21:05<hachi>is there a fast way to figure this out? I'm sitting here doing manual rdepends searches
21:05<dondelelcaro>hachi: probably because they're recommended. Using aptitude is the easy way.
21:05<eikenberry>dondelelcaro. No. I have a deb and deb-src for lenny. One each for security testing/updates and one for debian-multimedia.
21:05<hachi>no curses
21:05<dondelelcaro>*shrug*; then enjoy finding it out manually
21:06<hachi>recommended is not a reason for dist-upgrade to install them, is it?
21:06<dondelelcaro>it is in unstable.
21:06<hachi>I thought Required and Important was that

21:10<eikenberry>dondelelcaro. My sources.list file...
21:11<dondelelcaro>and low and behold, it's hal depending on pm-utils which depends on uswusp
21:11<Katya>dondelelcaro, will it devide a file into many at once, not just 2 divisions?
21:11<hachi>aptitude says nothing depends on it

21:15<dondelelcaro>Kosma: what's the actual question?
21:15<Kosma>it probably doesn't accept to file format (documentation says vmlinuz.gz and mirrors only have linux), but I can't be sure as I have no physical access to the machine
21:15<dondelelcaro>Kosma: you should have a serial console
21:15-!-lontra [] has joined #debian
21:16<Kosma>I have serial console for kernel messages and login, but not for grub, for some unknown reason grub doesn't work with my serial port
21:16<lontra>can anyone tell me how i can set the menubar fonts in firefox to a 9pt font in kde? i don't have gtk-qt-engine installed because i'm using kde4 but would like to know how to set this variable by editing a file
21:17<dondelelcaro>Kosma: what type of serial port is it?
21:17<hachi>dondelelcaro: hal isn't installed, and nothing I can see is installing it
21:17<dondelelcaro>Kosma: I mean, you do have to configure it to work, but it normally has no problem.
21:17<Kosma>dondelelcaro: Dell IPMI v2.0
21:17<dondelelcaro>hachi: so just tell it to be removed then, and see what breaks if anything.
21:18<Kosma>dondelelcaro: looks like standard UART under Linux, and works under Linux, but not under GRUB...
21:18-!-maspix [] has quit []
21:18<hachi>I can't tell it to remove it, hal isn't installed
21:18<dondelelcaro>Kosma: what does your grub configuration look like?
21:18<dondelelcaro>hachi: uswusp and pm-utils or whatever is causing uswusp to be installed, of course.
21:19<hachi>those aren't installed either, and the trailing hyphen thing doesn't do anything
21:19<hachi>it still tries to install it
21:19<dondelelcaro>hachi: then use aptitude to do the upgrade, and stop before it actually begins the install and see what wants to install it.
21:19<dondelelcaro>hachi: aptitdue will tell you whether it's going to install something, and will update the status so you can see why it's being installed in the same view that you were looking at earlier.

21:21<Kosma>hachi: aptitude has command-line interface too
21:21<eikenberry>hachi. I think he is just saying that is what he knows how to help you with.
21:21<dondelelcaro>no, I'm just not particularly interested in wasting my time helping you to solve something that is trivial to resolve if you use aptitude
21:22<Kosma>doesn't hachi just need to disable automatic Recommends/Suggests installation using some simple apt.conf spells? :D
21:22<dondelelcaro>solving it with apt-get isn't difficult either, but it requires following the Depends: and Recommends: chain, which, if you didn't already know grep-dctrl isn't something I want to explain.
21:22<Kosma>as for displaying reverse dependencies, it's "aptitude why <package name>"
21:23-!-rich [] has joined #debian

21:25<hachi>okay then:
21:25<Kosma>I'm a bit afraid to change my GRUB config again as if it crashes, I'll need to call the datacentre technicians again ;]
21:25<hachi>it's installing hal because it's trying to install konqueror, according to this
21:25<hachi>but I don't even have X installed
21:25<hachi>so I don't think that can be right
21:26<Kosma>hachi: try to install 'info' manually first and then cvs
21:26<dondelelcaro>hachi: uh... that's not saying that it's going to install hal.
21:26<hachi>sorry, I pasted the wrong one, hold on
21:27<hachi>konqueror isn't installed, and it's not trying to install it though
21:28<dondelelcaro>hachi: right, so that's not why it thinks uswusp should be installed. Can you provide the entire output of your apt-get -s dist-upgrade;?
21:28<dondelelcaro>(or whatever command you were running?)
21:28<hachi>a bit much to look at
21:29<hachi>but it's all there
21:29<Kosma>have you tried this?
21:29<Kosma>it just disables recommends and saves you a lot of headaches ;>
21:30<hachi>Kosma: I will turn that on, but it still doesn't tell me why the uwsusp chain is being installed right now
21:30<hachi>it just make it stop doing it, and I'll never know why
21:30<dondelelcaro>hachi: yes, so it's going to install hal, which is why uwsusp is coming.
21:30<Kosma>hachi: it's simple
21:30<hachi>yeah, but why is hal being installed
21:30<Kosma>the dependency chain is resolved the wrong way
21:31<hachi>when I do the aptitude thing recommended just a short while ago here
21:31<hachi>it says it's because I have cvs installed, which wants info-browser or whatever, which then tries to install konqueror
21:31<hachi>but apt-get dist-upgrade isn't following that path
21:31<Kosma>precisely, it says: cvs Recommends info | info-browser
21:31<Kosma>if you install info, it won't need info-browser
21:32<Kosma>and info is a medium-sized console app which should be acceptable
21:32<hachi>Status: install ok installed
21:32<hachi>info is installed
21:32<dondelelcaro>hachi: it's because gnome-mount is being installed, which pulls in hal.
21:32<Kosma>then it's magic ;]
21:33<hachi>seriously though, can you see why I'm having such a hard time with this? anytime I try to get an answer... it never comes
21:33<hachi>why is gnome-mount being installed
21:34-!-freealan [] has joined #debian
21:34<hachi>aptitude says it's because something wants gnome-terminal because it wants a terminal, because it wants tk, because scsitools is installed
21:34<Kosma>dondelelcaro: okay, I'm trying to get grub+serial working once more
21:34<dondelelcaro>hachi: because libgnomevfs2-0 Recommends it
21:34<hachi>but apt-get isn't installing gnome-terminal, and it's not installed... so it's not actually that
21:35-!-Johanna [johanna@] has joined #debian
21:36<hachi>dist-upgrade isn't installing tk, like aptitude is suggesting for the 'why' on gnome-mount
21:36<dondelelcaro>hachi: aptitude is just showing one possible reason why it could be installed. Because you're not using aptitude, it hasn't actually run the problem solution for the upgrade run, so it's not saying why it's being installed.
21:37<dondelelcaro>hachi: if you want to understand what's happening without using aptitude, you have to walk the dependency graph yourself using grep-aptavail or similar.
21:37<hachi>I don't see why aptitude isn't giving me the real answer though, I'm running it on the same machine
21:37<hachi>so it's the same dep tree and the same existing packages
21:38<Kosma>in fact aptitude and apt-get don't mix very well
21:39<dondelelcaro>hachi: it's because aptitude is looking at the state vector of your machine now, not the state vector after an upgrade that you haven't done.

21:45<dondelelcaro>wait, you're not using a physical com port?
21:45<Kosma>no, the server is in the USA and I'm in Europe ;-)
21:46<dondelelcaro>Kosma: that's fine, you could still be using a terminal server or similar.
21:46<dondelelcaro>all of my remote machines are set up that way

22:58<hachi>Kosma: cool!
22:58<hachi>I remember the raw commands being pretty harsh
22:58<hachi>they didn't even work properly on SiMech machines I was playing with
22:59<hachi>but worked fine on dells... though I never used them to configure anything beyond the IPMI network interface
22:59<Kosma>raw commands are vendor-specific...
22:59<Kosma>but when you have a cool vendor that publishes the list of those commands, they're just awesome

23:02<hachi>apparently dell came to our offices and showed off their IPMI stuff to us
23:02<hachi>but we laughed cause they said we needed to use a windows tool to manage them

23:13<Aleric>Does anyone know how I can set the access/modification of a symbolic link itself (not following the link)? With what C call?
23:13<Aleric>I found lutimes, but that's BSD - isn't there a POSIX call?
23:17<Aleric>That's for reading it, not setting it.

23:40<rotten>Katya: I understand what you are saying very well... but the video is very blurry.. so hard to follow.. and sometimes you say click but dont say clearly what you are clicking on

23:45<Katya>yea true
23:45<rotten>Anyone feel up to helping me troubleshooting a partitioning problem.. trying to use raid and LVM
23:45<Katya>i will read the help of google on how to record
23:45<Katya>rotten, i tried RAID
23:46<Katya>but i advise u of hardware raid
23:46-!-yvasilev [~yvasilev@] has joined #debian
23:48<rotten>Katya: i love hardware raids too... but i dont have the money for the expensive true hardware cards.. besides.. just gonna make a couple of raid1's
23:49<Katya>how come theya are expensive>??
23:49<Katya>there is a card just for 30$
23:49<Katya>SATA + IDE supporting extention card
23:50<rotten>Katya: there are many cards on the market that support hardware raids... but the chip set offloads the the handling of the raid to the processor... so they are not true hardware raid
23:51<Kosma>there is actually a pretty foolproof way to tell the true from non-true raid adapters... price :)
23:51<rotten>katya: check out 3ware.. those are true hardware cards.. some of them have on board ram to help raid5s, and some have there own battery supply incase of improper shutdown
23:51-!-shashi [~shashi@] has joined #debian
23:52<Kosma>yeah, plus 3wares have excellent tw_cli ulitity for configuration & diagnostics
23:52<rotten>Alot of the on board chipsets from any MFG that support raid is gonna be software
