01:58<fxiny>Maulkin: mrxvt-0.5.3 is still not fixed as for . Yes : it will segfault with more then 20 ~/.mrxtrc profiles. Quick fix : i have just edited rxvt.h line number 1235 so now it reads : Rs_winTitleFormat, _Rs_winTitleFormat = MAX_PROFILES - 1 + Rs_winTitleFormat .I have successfully patched with no-scroll-with-buffer and compiled it on etch : ./configure --e
01:58-!-antares [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
01:58<fxiny>20 is not a sensible max tabs limit : alt+number switches tabs so i think 10 is a sensible figure 5 tabs/profiles limit is totally useless . 20 ? oh that will be a good laugh : kde and gnome can follow if they feel so ;) , have a nice day

02:59<Rainier>is there anyway to get back root access if I ran usermod -L root as root and forgot to put my username in sudoers?
03:00<Rainier>hehhe.. ok. Is it easy?
03:00-!-Politics [] has quit []
03:00<tcsetattr>boot from CD, mount hard drive, and undo what you did
03:01<jm_>yeah, see above ;)
03:01<dpkg>So you installed windows after debian, huh? Tssk. Boot to your debian install disk or whatever else you have, switch to the other console (alt-f2), then mount your root filesystem (mount -t ext2 /dev/whatever /target ; mount --bind /dev /target/dev ), then chroot into it (chroot /target) then run "mount /proc ; grub-install /dev/hda && update-grub"
03:01<Rainier>it's on a dedicated server machine though
03:01<jm_>that's majority of it
03:01<jm_>!i forgot root's password
03:01<dpkg>1) 'linux init=/bin/sh' at a lilo boot prompt (hold Shift while booting to make one appear), 2) 'fsck' your root file system, 3) 'mount -o remount,rw /', 4) 'passwd root' 5) 'mount -o remount,ro /' 6) reboot -d -f (exec /sbin/init should work); For GRUB (e.g. etch, sarge): in step 1, press 'e' to edit the kernel setting (add init=/bin/sh to the end of it), 'b' to boot. Steps 2-6 are the same.
03:01<jm_>even better
03:02<tcsetattr>ah yes init=/bin/sh, shoulda said that.
03:02<Rainier>can I just go from fsck onwards then because I can't reboot the machine as it's remote
03:03<jm_>no because you won't have root access?
03:03-!-prem [~prem@] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
03:03<Rainier>ok, so how do I get root access back if the server is remote? i.e. can I reboot it and do the above remotely?
03:03<Rainier>when it reboots I will be disconnected from it
03:04<tcsetattr>if you have no console access, and are not in possession of a valid password, what distinguishes you from some random attacker trying to break in?
03:04<jm_>that depends on what kind of access they give to you I suppose
03:04<Rainier>I have the password
03:04<tcsetattr>not valid anymore
03:04<Rainier>I disabled root access though before I put my username in sudoers
03:04<Rainier>why isn't it valid anymore? does running usermod -L root change the pass?
03:04<tcsetattr>and now the universe punishes you for thinking like an Ubuntu weenie.
03:05<Rainier>heheh agreed.
03:05<Rainier>habits are bad..
03:05<tcsetattr>yes, usermod -L does a little bit of mangling of the crypted password, making it invalid
03:05<Rainier>hmm.. So I guess only way is to get hosting company to reinstall debian?
03:06<tcsetattr>or you can approach it as a random attacker would. watch the Debian security advisories and hope for a remote root exploit
03:07-!-sepski [] has joined #debian
03:07<Rainier>hehehe, I only installed sshd and proftpd on it.. where can I view the security advisories?
03:07-!-mourad [] has joined #debian
03:07<tcsetattr>the init=/bin/sh thing isn't too hard to do. neither is "boot a live CD and run mount /dev/hda1 /mnt;chroot /mnt;usermod -U root"
03:08<tcsetattr>just have to be there
03:09-!-p_quarles [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
03:09<Rainier>yeah exactly, server is in UK I am in Austrlia makes it a bit hard.. thanks for your help.
03:10<tcsetattr>I don't suppose you had set up any other authentication methods for root... like .ssh/authorized_keys
03:11-!-Refakki [] has joined #debian
03:11<jaakko>Rainier: Is this a real single server or some hosting companys virtual server?
03:12-!-HellTiger [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
03:12<jaakko>Rainier: you mentioned "hosting company", I think they have a root access and can get the passwd back (or what are they doing as hosting?).

04:06<spar74n>jm_ how can i overwrite it?

04:06-!-cloud [~Miranda@] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
04:06<clone>spar74n, you should just take the laptop somewhere you can plug into network and use a net install cd
04:06<spar74n>clone cuz debian is better and i can learn a lot on it
04:07<clone>spar74n, I never tried Ubunto
04:07<spar74n>clone trust me if i could do that i would already
04:07<jm_>spar74n: via debootstrap method - you need kernel and initrd from Debian
04:07<Jeffro>ok problem....
04:07<spar74n>clone i work 12 hours a day as security guarrd in bank except sunday and saturday

04:11<jm_>spar74n: you have 5G swap partition? what for?
04:11<vook>spar74n: if you wanna use debian, use debian. Wipe that ubuntu away and save some space. You'll have a semi-working debian system in no time, and then you can get on here we'll help you set it all up.
04:11<spar74n>clone i can download from windows in wich wifi is working
04:11<clone>spar74n, the link I gave you has for doing a hhd install,
04:11<kernfreak>lmao @ 5g swap

04:11<Gekz>whod doesnt need a 5GB swap
04:11<Gekz>if I didnt have 5GB of swap, I'd have nothing to put there.
04:12<clone>spar74n, I have never been able to get wifi working, so you probably going to have problem

04:13<kernfreak>you need more swap spar74n
04:13<clone>spar74n, I think there is no way, you are probably gonna have to wait until you have time off somewhere where you can plug in the computer to ethernet
04:13<spar74n>clone but i have a shitload of time here
04:13<kernfreak>you have no way of getting information into your computer

04:14<clone>spar74n, kernfreak, he only has internet on Windows
04:14-!-jandark [~Milad@] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
04:14<Gekz>i had that problem once.
04:14<spar74n>and on ubuntu
04:14<Gekz>I rectified it by installing linux
04:14<kernfreak>ubuntu and windows
04:14*Gekz nods
04:15<clone>spar74n, your best bet is to download the whole debian cd, that doesn't require net booting, and try to boot that
04:15<spar74n>i could do this from ubuntu >
04:15<kernfreak>he has no cdrom
04:15<spar74n>clone cdrom is dead
04:15<spar74n>i have cds
04:15<spar74n>bitchass cdrom
04:16<clone>spar74n, I know, but don't burn the cd, just copy it to harddrive, and try to boot from harrdrive
04:16<vook>spar74n: do you have another pc?
04:16<spar74n>vook not here
04:16<clone>spar74n, it can be done. You can make windows boot the cd from your harddrive
04:17<vook>clone: do you have floppy?
04:17-!-Slackware [] has joined #debian
04:17<jm_>his CD drive doesn't work
04:17<spar74n>clone yes i was thinking that but i dont know how to make hdd installer i know to copy initrd and vmlinuz
04:17<clone>vook, why me?
04:17<vook>clone: sorry
04:17<spar74n>clone but packages and all of it dont know where do i put and how?
04:17<vook>spar74n: do you have floppy ?
04:17<clone>spar74n, you gonna have to edit boot.ini in windows
04:17<spar74n>vook no
04:17<kernfreak>I would at this point try and break up the cd, and glue it to the hard drive
04:17<clone>spar74n, or maybe you can do it bios, but I think boot.ini would be easier
04:18<spar74n>clone i tried with debian.exe
04:18<spar74n>but wifi not working i cant connect here
04:18<vook>spar74n: is the pc booting with grub?
04:18<spar74n>vook yes
04:19<clone>spar74n, screw debian.exe, I never heard of it. Ok first you need to make harddrive space. You can boot ubunto, and make format a partiion and copy it that partition
04:19<spar74n>clone ok
04:20<clone>spar74n, or maybe you can use partition majic to shrink windows a little too
04:20*vook thinks that spar74n could download the netinst iso, and somehow boot directly from the iso using grub... (maybe extract netinst to the swap partition).
04:20<spar74n>clone no need i have 4 gb empty partition
04:20<spar74n>vook that would be gr8
04:20-!-GhostlyDeath|Laptop [] has joined #debian
04:20<Baggy2>I have a library, libMyLib.a, which has been compiled with several cross compilers (gcc-3.4.5-glibc-2.3.6, gcc-4.1.1-glibc-2.5 and gcc-4.1.1-glibc-2.6.1). My question is, do they really need to ship all of these when the lib is of type .a?
04:21<clone>spar74n, then you can use can make a small fat partition, and use Windows to download to that partition, and then Ubunto, to make a ext3 partition, and copy to from fat
04:21<spar74n>vook i was thinking something like that just dont know how to put it on hdd
04:21<clone>spar74n, or can Ubunto mount ntfs
04:21<spar74n>clone i have 30gb fat32 partition i download onto it it is shared between winblows and ubuntu
04:22<spar74n>clone and i have netinst iso already with ipw2200 firmware in it
04:22<clone>spar74n, make 1gig, and then in ubunto, make it 29 gig ext3
04:22<clone>spar74n, oh, then this should be easy
04:22<GhostlyDeath|Laptop>For timidity "ALSA lib seq_hw.c:457:(snd_seq_hw_open) open /dev/snd/seq failed: No such file or directory", am I missing a modprobe/packages (use timidity as a sequencer)
04:22<jm_>Baggy2: compile on lowest version and it should work with all
04:23<spar74n>clone so i just need somehow to install base debian and put firmware into /lib/firmware and im off to go then
04:23<clone>spar74n, grub?
04:23<vook>spar74n: download the debian 4.0 netinst and extract the contents to the swap partition. In the meantime, set up a swap file and turn off the swap partition. Then set up a line in grub to boot to the partition where swap exists. (you'll have to turn swap into ext2).
04:23<spar74n>clone ipw2200 should work then and i have net and apt-get working
04:23<vook>spar74n: you could place your swapfile on that ext2 partition.
04:24<clone>spar74n, yeah, I never knew about ipw2200 firmware
04:24<GhostlyDeath|Laptop>I use ipw3945, might have a few answers
04:24<spar74n>clone into that 1,5gb swap?

04:25<spar74n>clone or onto any partition i want ( i can resize any partition tough)
04:25<clone>spar74n, well you have a window partition, an Ubunto partition, and a fat shared between both, but you are also going to need a new partition on which you gonna install debian
04:25<spar74n>clone i have a 4gb free partition for debian already
04:26<Baggy2>err.. the second "and" should've been an ",I"
04:26<jm_>Baggy2: yeah

04:30<clone>spar74n, I don't think you can share the swap between Ubunto and Debian
04:30<Baggy2>jm_: Thanks, but what about this: This is why compiling and linking static library and application
04:30<Baggy2>on the same system is not a problem; the resulting binary will
04:30<Baggy2>run on both linuxthreads and NPTL systems, since they will use
04:30<Baggy2>the versioned glibc functions. However, a static library does not
04:30<Baggy2>reference versioned functions until it is linked with either a
04:30<Baggy2>shared library or an application. Thus, if you compile the static
04:30<Baggy2>library on a linuxthreads systems but link an application against
04:30<vook>clone: untrue
04:30<Baggy2>it on a NPTL systems, things will break, since the static library
04:30<Baggy2>expects an older version of glibc but gets linked against a new
04:30<jm_>Baggy2: yes that will be a problem
04:30<clone>vook, well, what about if you are doing a cross-install
04:31<jm_>the only time sharing swap might be a problem if you're using suspend to disk on that swap partition
04:31-!-BBoyDanny [] has joined #debian

06:31<munga>not very debian related... :)

06:33-!-mehdid [] has joined #debian
06:33<jm_>yes if your hardware supports it
06:33<Bonhomme>hi there, I have a simple question. someone issued a shutdown command on a server, I want to trace which user elevated to root (the only way to get there is "su") most recently before the command was run
06:34<Bonhomme>(and if possible, a conclusive link that it was run from their session)
06:34<Bonhomme>the server is running debian sarge
06:34<jm_>Bonhomme: grep 'su[[]' /var/log/auth.log
06:34<twb>munga: you can boot from a USB stick; Debian Live makes this easy using Debian.
06:35<twb>munga: not all peecees support booting from USB, however.
06:35<Bonhomme>jm_: ah thanks
06:36<twb>munga: also, it's probably not advisable to put the root partition on USB key unless you're not going to be mount it -o ro (read only), because SSDs have a relatively limited number of writes.
06:36<weasel>just use a filesystem that's designed for that kind of storage
06:36<twb>jm_: heh, I'd have written \[ instead of [[]
06:37<Bonhomme>jm_: for general education, is it possible to know say the pty of the user who elevated, along with pty the command was run from, or match the command to the PID of the su command that elevated that user, or something like that?
06:37<twb>weasel: even with wear levelling, it's advisable to minimize writes
06:37<munga>twb: my problem was related to the qnap ts-209, that is a nas ... I was wondering if that particular hw supports boot from usb
06:37<jm_>Bonhomme: user's "pts" logged in auth.log - didn't grep show it?
06:38<Bonhomme>(although in this case it's pretty conclusive - 18:04:11, a user elevated to root, 18:04:14 shutdown starting logged in syslog, 18:04:16 user's root session closed)
06:38<jm_>Bonhomme: ahh I see what you mean - last should show it
06:38<Bonhomme>jm_: ah ok, it's pts/0 although it seems to be pts/0 all the time, so I thought it was fishy
06:39-!-Slydder [~chuck@] has joined #debian
06:39<jm_>heh nice, my wtmp is not updated since mar 1
06:40<Bonhomme>jm_: ah ok, so I can see when the user logged in, but can i see
06:41<Bonhomme>jm_: "this shutdown command was run by root at pts/0"
06:41<Bonhomme>jm_: or something like that
06:41<jm_>Bonhomme: did you run "last" by now?
06:42<Bonhomme>jm_: yep, it shows me a list of users to last log in and their pts
06:42<Bonhomme>jm_: and the times they logged in/out
06:42<jm_>Bonhomme: but not shutdown?
06:42<Bonhomme>jm_: no
06:42<jm_>Bonhomme: how about last -x?
06:43<Bonhomme>jm_: although one session is listed as "11:48 - down (06:15)"
06:43<jm_>that's it
06:43<Bonhomme>hmm ok
06:43<gsimmons>munga: There's some recent (~3-4 days old) posts regarding the QNAP Turbostation on the debian-arm mailing list, which may be of interest.
06:43<Bonhomme>sigh, nuffy new admin rebooted wrong box by mistake
06:43<Bonhomme>then I get a call saying "why isn't internet working"
06:44<Bonhomme>oh well, I guess that's better than discovering your firewall's been compromised from the outside

06:58<spar74n>jm_ i managed to install it and all it starts but stops at starting root filesystem
06:59<spar74n>jm_ it says waiting for root filesystem....
06:59<jm_>spar74n: that's because it can't mount your /
06:59<clone>chandu, I saw something in man page, it say bs=bytes
07:00<spar74n>jm_ if i had specified wrong partition on grub it wouldnt start at all
07:00<spar74n>jm_ i dont understan why?
07:00<spar74n>jm_ i actually managed to boot iso from grub and iso was located at fat32 partition lol
07:00<jm_>spar74n: uhm grub can't do that to the best of my knowledge
07:01<spar74n>jm_ it did in this case
07:01<clone>spar74n, so when you installed it, you made it fat, and now you should make sure that grub points to the ext3 now instead of the fat
07:01<spar74n>jm_ ;)
07:01<jm_>spar74n: what exactly did you run in grub then?
07:01<spar74n>jm_ no i installed to ext3
07:02<clone>jm_ he did a harddrive install
07:02<Engywuck_>@chandu: what is your dd command line?
07:04<spar74n>jm_ for booting from iso or for booting already installed debian?
07:04<spar74n>clone i made another entry into the grub to point to ext3 partition
07:04<spar74n>clone and it boots but hangs at waiting for root filesystem

07:19<Engywuck_>hehe, you answered the second I wanted to aks others for help ;-)

07:27*tcsetattr wonders if chandu is just misjudging what actually happened
07:27<chandu>tcsetattr, No I dont think misjudgement
07:28<chandu>tcsetattr, What exactly I am tryin to do is ..
07:28<chandu>tcsetattr, I am capturing my HDD image and uploading it my server
07:28<chandu>tcsetattr, Iam using this command
07:28<chandu>tcsetattr, dd bs=1M if=/dev/cciss/c0d0p1 count=1024 | curl -v --connect-timeout 5 --upload-file -
07:28<tcsetattr>you're saying dd if=/dev/zero of=foo bs=1M count=1024 && ls -l foo, shows the wrong size and no error messages?
07:29<chandu>tcsetattr, Even I tried dd bs=1M if=/dev/zero count=1024 | curl -v --connect-timeout 5 --upload-file -
07:29<chandu>tcsetattr, Both are not uploading full 1G image to my server
07:29<chandu>tcsetattr, uploading is stopping in between after some 400 MB or 500 MB
07:29<tcsetattr>so you think dd is misbehaving instead of blaming the obviously more complicated (and therefore bug-susceptible) curl?
07:29<chandu>tcsetattr, I tested by jsut doing only upload of 1G file uploads successfully
07:30<chandu>tcsetattr, so curl is working fine
07:30<chandu>tcsetattr, Hence I thought dd is not working
07:30<tcsetattr>have you even tried it WITHOUT the curl, with a local destination?
07:31<chandu>tcsetattr, Yes tried ..its not creating the full image
07:32<tcsetattr>ok so why don't we settle on a single problem instead of having you change it all the time. Forget curl, don't mention it again until the _local_ thing is fixed.
07:32<fxiny>assuming netcat listening : dd if=/dev/hd | nc -w 5 ipdest port
07:33<tcsetattr>do the skip thing I suggested a long way back.
07:33<tcsetattr>you're too busy coming up with new things to complain about and not trying the suggestions you get
07:34<chandu>tcsetattr, ok will try it first

08:36<padski>Hui_Nan, you probably have some other problme, or I guess you would be getting a signature warning, but it is worth considering. perhaps you could get the release files from snapshots
08:37<Hui_Nan>that was what i am thinking about
08:37<Hui_Nan>however I have dvds from 08.03.2008 while the last weekly snapshot is 13.03.2008
08:38-!-libervisco [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
08:38<Hui_Nan>anyway, it seems there's no simple solution to make things work like devils
08:39<Hui_Nan>the easiest way is to use 1st dvd to set up base system and then to use my mirror
08:40<padski>or thereabouts

08:42<Kebianizao|work>I've programmed a custom daemon and I'm trying to fit it into the debian boot process
08:42<Hui_Nan>no, wont work - Packages files have different sizes!
08:43<Kebianizao|work>I'm writing the init script, using start-stop-daemon. Who's responsible for creating the pidfile?
08:43<weasel>Kebianizao|work: the daemon, usually

08:47-!-bharmono [~bharmono@] has quit []
08:47<weasel>Kebianizao|work: detaching is not the same as forking, but it involves forking.
08:47<weasel>so it's not really a daemon then :)
08:47<weasel>just use start-stop-daemon with --background and --make-pidfile
08:47<Kebianizao|work>it keeps running, I expect some other to fork to background if neccessary and hence I'm using the -b parameter
08:48<Kebianizao|work>that's it, --make-pidfile ;) thanks
08:48<weasel>manpage? :)
08:48<weasel>also read 1.7 How do I get my program to act like a daemon?
08:48<Kebianizao|work>weasel: I didn't see that option :S
08:49<weasel>unportable newfangled stuff
08:49<Kebianizao|work>I know now why. it's in the end of the manpage, so probably by then I gave up :/
08:49<weasel>fork() setsid() fork() :)
08:49<padski>I thought the whole point is portability
08:51<Kebianizao|work>what are those considerations about portability?
08:51<jm_>you won't find daemon on solaris ...

09:51<ZeuZ>Guys, Is it really needed for a host acting as router/gateway to have rpc port open? if not, how can I close port 111?
09:52<crazyb0y>ZeuZ: 111 port is for portmap
09:52<padski>ZeuZ, and use netstat -lpn to see what is listening where
09:52-!-Hui_Nan [~Hunger@] has quit [Quit: Chatzilla [Iceape 1.1.8/2008012902]]
09:53<ZeuZ>I get it bounded for rpc when I nmap it...
09:53<crazyb0y>ZeuZ: if you don't need portmap to use, /etc/init.d/portmap stop ; update-rc.d -f portmap remove
09:53<ZeuZ>yes, I know how to do that, but my question comes this way:
09:54<ZeuZ>This host is giving 143 users ISP services, tcng for traffic control, and I don-t know if this host needs to have portmapd running or not... what would you advice?
09:54-!-acidShaka [] has joined #debian
09:54<crazyb0y>if your router is only for MASQUERADING, nat, dnat
09:54<crazyb0y>you don't need portmap- =)
09:54<padski>ZeuZ, is there any traffic on the port ?
09:54<ZeuZ>cool, then I'll uninstall it...
09:55<ZeuZ>padski: dunno, will check that now through iptraf
09:55<crazyb0y>ZeuZ: try at first just to stop, if any customer is calling you, then start it again, eeeh =)
09:56<ZeuZ>how about port 953 and 113 ?
09:56-!-igor [igor@] has joined #debian
09:56<crazyb0y>113 is identd
09:56<crazyb0y>953 is rndc i think so, let me check
09:56<padski>ZeuZ, /etc/services is also handy
09:57<crazyb0y>rndc 953/tcp # named's rndc control socket
09:57-!-spar74n [~spar74n@] has joined #debian
09:57<crazyb0y>ZeuZ: why don't you use 'fuser'?

09:57<ZeuZ>@google fuser
09:57<crazyb0y>fuser -v 953/tcp ; fuser -v 113/tcp
09:57<ZeuZ>to replace what thing?
09:57<ZeuZ>oh, it-s a fuzzer xD
09:58<ZeuZ>oh, no its not xD
09:58<jm_>!open ports
09:58<dpkg>rumour has it, open ports is # netstat -plunt, or lsof -i -n, or ask me about <open files>, or fuser -n tcp <portnumber>
09:58<crazyb0y>yes same as fuser -n..
09:58<ZeuZ>hmm... that port is being used with bind... but it shouldn-t be under use if bind is serving through 53 right?
09:58<crazyb0y>but differs in the syntax
09:58<dpkg>i heard fuser is a handy command to 'identify processes using files or sockets' or if you find a port number that you want more info on, do: fuser -n tcp <portnum> ., or some people think it's is short for 'what the fuck is using that damn file!!!!!'
09:59<spar74n>how to setup sound on base system?
09:59<crazyb0y>ZeuZ: 953 is for rndc, the remote control for bind
09:59<crazyb0y>rndc talks with bind trough this port =-)
09:59<ZeuZ>well, the only thing I need for control remotely is SSH, so how do I get rid of that?
09:59<jm_>spar74n: try dpkg-reconfigure linux-sound-base

11:08<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. See also <based on debian>.

11:21<PianoDude>morgan - Has it been folded into the regular archive, or is it just gone?
11:21<morgan`>I had known the reason why ... there's a long time
11:22<morgan`>It seems to me that it has been folded into the regular archive, not sure
11:22<PianoDude>morgan - Ok....I'll just try deleting that line in my sources.list, and see if it blows up.
11:23<PianoDude>Guess I should try a test server before my production one, though, huh? ;)
11:23<Batchz0r>iceweasel doesn't seem to want to segfault now >_<
11:24<morgan`>PianoDude, maybe you can try to identify what packages come from non-US before
11:24<Batchz0r>Wait, it just died
11:24<PianoDude>morgan - I've got an internal-only fileserver that I'll try the upgrade on, first.

11:27<valdyn>sarge didnt have non-us either iirc
11:27<PianoDude>valdyn - I get it. So if I downloaded it in Canada from, I'd be fine, but us-mirror would be in deep?
11:27<valdyn>PianoDude: yea
11:28<PianoDude>valdyn - No, sarge had non-US. I've been using it for years.
11:28<valdyn>PianoDude: maybe not for canada, i have no idea if that export restriction applied to all countries
11:28<fxiny>non-US was about a crypto issue
11:28<PianoDude>valdyn - But if the law is gone, then it's probably just been folded into the regular archive.
11:28<valdyn>PianoDude: iirc it only had the directores, but nothing in there that wasnt in main

11:29<PianoDude>fxiny - Yeah, I know. Somehow, the US gov thought nobody else had good cryptographers that could unbreakably encrypt anything.

11:29<Smoczek>jest jakis polak ktory chce pomoc ?:)
11:29<PianoDude>valdyn - Ok...then I didn't notice, because I never got 404 errors doing an apt-get update.
11:30<valdyn>theres no restrictions on exporting strong encryption technologies anymore

13:12<fxiny>you should install it . mutt loves procmail too
13:12<pundit>fxiny dont talk about procmail... i know it. badly. and i think its the worst documented program on earth :(
13:13<pundit>fxiny : what really wonders me so much is that procmail is installed by default in etch, but no imap thing like fetchmail. isnt that strange?
13:13<fxiny>pundit: if you are into mutt check out muttprofile and urlview , you can find procmail recipe on the net

16:17<spartan>hi all
16:17<pundit>jaako: rebuilding mutt would be equal to installing a program or package again. therefore if one strictly wants to use only what is there on etch by default then mutt plus its built-in imap would work well. plus exim or so. :)

18:03<chealer_>andresvia: not necessarily
18:03<themill>not bitchx....
18:03<andresvia>whitehat, bitchx is not a good alternative to xchat.
18:03<noli>whitehat, bitcx is from console..
18:03-!-chealer_ is now known as chealer
18:03<whitehat>I know
18:03<whitehat>I like it though
18:03<themill>bah.,... still no bot
18:03<bill_>I want to grill Epiphany on why the use up CPU when i am on another app
18:03<themill>[22:03] <dpkg> somebody said bitchx was a old and unmaintained irc-client build on epic and ircII. As a Debian package, screwed up and not falling back to IPv4 when IPv6 ain't possible. It's not as good as <irssi> and needs less moronic /quit messages. If you are an irssi user who is annoyed by said /quit messages, "/ignore -regexp -pattern BitchX QUITS" Abandoned by its upstream authors, removed from Debian to resolve bug #451373.
18:04<themill>whitehat: ^^
18:04<whitehat>lol apache won't even work for me
18:04<andresvia>chealer, what do I need to read about, NIS, LDAP?
18:04<bill_>i just installed xchat and it didnt let me read what it was doing
18:05<whitehat>I only use xchat for this chat. when I'm stuck on something
18:05<whitehat>such as....are there any mp4 converters for linux?
18:05<andresvia>whitehat, try ffmpeg.
18:05<chealer>andresvia: I don't know NIS and LDAP but if you just want to mount NFS shares I think you only need to know NFS.
18:05<bill_>you know all this debian need rewritten
18:06<bill_>now that we know
18:06<themill>whitehat: I believe mplayer can be convinced to do it too

19:26<revenge>Is there a menu that represents that K-Menu style on that Vid.
19:26<jaakko>revenge: sorry, but no flash here. Kicker is a KDE application, I don't think there is such thing for Gnome.

22:01<jaakko>Not on servers, where stability counts
22:01<MadeOfWin>if you want stability on servers, you'd go with unix
22:01<wayneward>it wors fast and easy which is good but to gain more power use debain
22:01<MadeOfWin>freebsd is quite nice
22:02<wayneward>i messed with gentoo on my servers was pretty good but breaks very easy :-(
22:03<MoDaX>jaakko: the article is pretty much ubuntu centric, no real comparision is done
22:03<jaakko>I'm not saying Ubuntu is a bad choice, but I can't believe they can get same quality in shorter time than Debian (especially when it is based on debian, no other superior system).
22:04<MoDaX>ubuntu does one thing well - marketing
22:04<wayneward>its seems like ubuntu easy to install and pretty well setup but unstable debain bit harder but stable and faster = good choice
22:05<lontra>debian is easy to install and setup
22:05<wayneward>yes ubuntu can market they are pretty big fast i suppose!
22:05<MadeOfWin>ubuntu does many things well, hence why you're discussing it in a debian channel now, and i'm sure quite often
22:05<jaakko>MoDax: what would be a comparison? The amount of bugs? The programs and package management is pretty mutch the same.
22:05<MadeOfWin>do you think they're talking about debian in ubuntu channels right now?
22:05<wayneward>yes debian is easy to setup but quirky
22:05<wayneward>here is a good example
22:06<lontra>MadeOfWin: that isn't way. it's cause ubuntu users come here looking for help ... or saying i want to run debian but i'm scared

23:07<GhostlyDeath|Laptop>Is there a limit on how many times one can call malloc()?
23:07<wayneward>MoDaX will they braek machine
23:08<MadeOfWin>Ghost no
23:08<MadeOfWin>memory allocation is limited to amount of ram you have though

23:10<amphi>GhostlyDeath|Laptop: you're sure it crashes in malloc? or just near it, say after it fails and you use the pointer regardless, perhaps? ;)
23:10<GhostlyDeath|Laptop>amphi: No it crashes in malloc

23:17<vn>hi, I'm installing a debian etch with soft raid but I don't understand, I did a raid partition on my 2 scsi drives, which gave me a software raid device and then I'm trying to create my partitions but as soon as I create the 1st partition it tells me the free space is unusable...I want to do more than one partitions, any tips?

23:21<MoDaX>vn: generally, softraid devices are partitionaless, so you have to create a separate md device for each parition. linux 2.6 supports partitionful software raid devices, but I'm sure if debian-installer supports them
23:22<MoDaX>GhostlyDeath|Laptop: check you ram
23:22<GhostlyDeath|Laptop>MoDaX: This malloc happens on another PC

23:35<engywuck>shouldn't do such things in the middle of the night

23:42<MoDaX>GhostlyDeath: then what does it have to do with windows?
23:43<GhostlyDeath>testing it in a 32-bit environment
23:47<GhostlyDeath>hmm, fixed some code
23:49-!-chrono [] has joined #debian
23:49<GhostlyDeath>MoDaX: I'm porting someone elses code, valgrind reported an invalid write of size 8, the line in there was allocating 4 bytes (because a 32-bit pointer is 4 bytes), once I fixed it, it started working
23:49<GhostlyDeath>which would explain why it worked on a 32-bit Windows
