00:00<Guest1952>sure. you know when you go to applications and then system tools and then file browser?
00:00<p_quarles>e.g., nautilus /home/username/downloads (etc)
00:00<user01>mamour, i like that gedit is lightweight, but i like the sytax menus for notepad ++
00:01<mamour>user01 I'mnot familiar with notepad++ - I'll check it out
00:01<user01>mamour, macro recording
00:01<Guest1952>when i click on a folder on my desltiop i want the file browser to open not just the simple browser
00:01<mamour>user01 that's a good point - I hadn't thought of macro recording
00:01<mamour>user01 are you familiar with tables of linux equivalent software ?
00:01-!-mode/#debian [+l 318] by debhelper
00:01<p_quarles>Guest1952: then you need to make a custom launcher -- using a command like the one I gave you
00:01<shivraj>Supaplex : whats the package for resizee2fs ?
00:02<user01>mamour, nope
00:02<Guest1952>is there a way to do that by just clicking on the folder
00:02<mamour>user01 have you also used add/remove software and typed in the search box "text editor" or something
00:03<shivraj>screw it ... once I remove that other 3 gig file I'll have enough space
00:03<mamour>user01, does that sound like good advice ?
00:03<shivraj>hooo hoo more like 8 gig :)
00:03<user01>mamour, i dont do flow charts but i heard that dia isnt a very good replacement for visio from what ive been told ... saw that on a table
00:03<mamour>user01, I use dia for my database class
00:03<shivraj>migration for slow windows computer ... windows sucks .. my sisters computer
00:04<mamour>user01, i love it - it has pretty much the exact same plugins that visio does
00:04<Supaplex>shivraj: not sure, but if you install apt-file, you can apt-file update, and apt-file search bin/resize2fs
00:04<mamour>user01, and you can export your diagrams to picture format for insertion in documents

00:25<mamour>user01, I do live in Morrisville, NY where I attend college, and there's very little out here except the college
00:25<Guest1952>chealer: what do you think
00:26<chealer>Guest1952: sorry, I don't know GNOME
00:26<user01>mamour, you could start a campus LUG our local onse are pretty disorganized
00:26-!-dli_ [] has joined #debian
00:26<Guest1952>can someone help me with gnome
00:26<mamour>user01, I don't know about right now - I just got in trouble for setting up a lab computer to relay torrents
00:27<mamour>user01, my professor went up and pulled out my hard drive, then sent me an email stating it was set up to download illegal content
00:27<mamour>user01, so after I find out if I'm going to jail or not I'll look into starting a LUG
00:28<RIVE>Hack the school computers is not a good idea.
00:29<user01>mamour, you could start a LUG in jaill too bad spitzer is out
00:30<user01>mamour, you can still write the new gov for funds
00:30<mamour>user01, that's true, we'll see
00:30<mamour>user01, it's difficult for me to think right now
00:31<mamour>user01, I'm in IRC hoping to talk about something to get my mind off it :)
00:31<mamour>user01, looking for an NHL chat but can't find anything
00:31<user01>mamour, i would think it would be ok as long as the riaa isnt involved
00:32<mamour>user01, I really wouldn't worry about it even if the RIAA was involved b/c then it would just be a civil matter and a fine
00:32-!-Engywuck [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:32<mamour>user01, however, I was in trouble before - I took a motherboard out of a lab computer and took it back to my dorm room

00:33-!-kamaraju [~kamaraju@] has quit [Quit: KVIrc 3.2.4 Anomalies]
00:33<mamour>user01, I have this desktop that I decided to upgrade the BIOS - worst decision of my life
00:33<user01>mamour, well for the cost of a college education you should haev the right to take many motherboards to your dorm
00:33<mamour>user01, that's a very supportive remark :)
00:34<mamour>user01, it's not like it was a $500 item anyway - lab computer is like $50 bought in bulk
00:34-!-SAN [~Ashok@] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
00:34<mamour>user01, I have an Abit AV8 motherboard - athlon 4000+ fx processor, 4 gb corsair memory, ati x850 video card
00:35<mamour>user01, all useless because I upgraded the bios and it's never worked right
00:35-!-doug [] has joined #debian
00:35<mamour>user01, then I downgraded the BIOS to a version from 2004 and now it just won't even boot
00:35<mamour>user01, so I'm stuck with a thinkpad t60 laptop
00:35<user01>mamour, i ahve the same mobo
00:35<mamour>user01, what version bios are you using ?
00:36<user01>mamour, i have had it for like 3 years i havent check for in upgrade in a year and i half
00:36<mamour>user01, I was the same way - it was working fine but I happened to be browsing their site
00:37<mamour>user01, and I saw the latest bios - so I just decided to update it
00:37<mamour>user01, one thing was that I had a 3 gbps data transfer rate SATA drive from seagate
00:37<mamour>user01, and the BIOS update said it included support for anything beyond 1.5 gbps
00:37<mamour>user01, because it wasn't working
00:38<mamour>user01, well, after I flashed the bios, it was gg
00:38-!-zblaxell [] has joined #debian
00:38<mamour>user01, computer was SLOW, even after I ordered a new BIOS chip and put it in - still slow
00:38<mamour>user01, it was a sweet system till I upgraded the BIOS and then it was never the same
00:39-!-Zygo [] has quit [Quit: Getting off stoned server - dircproxy 1.0.5]
00:39-!-doug [] has quit []
00:39<user01>mamour, so i should avoid the newer bios update if i see one?
00:39<mamour>yes !!
00:39<mamour>maybe it will work for you
00:39-!-horst_ [] has joined #debian
00:40<user01>mamour, i think mine is still 1.5 gbps
00:40<mamour>user01, yeah I tried connecting a 3 gbps drive and it didn't work
00:41<mamour>user01, in linux or windoze - neither detected the HD
00:41<user01>mamour, i did one update at some point, not sure if it was the one ou did
00:42<mamour>user01, there's a workaround where you can jumper a few pins and it will downgrade the speed of the sata drive to 1.5 gbps
00:42-!-horst_ [] has quit []
00:42<mamour>user01, and the mobo is fine w/ that
00:42<mamour>user01, any chance you have an extra bios chip you can send me :)
00:42<user01>1.5 gbps has been ok for me
00:42<mamour>user01, I don't have $25 for a new one
00:42<user01>i think my mobo only came with one
00:43<mamour>ya I figured so
00:43<mamour>just had to ask :)
00:43<mamour>it's out of warranty by now
00:43-!-bokzss [~bokzss@] has joined #debian

00:44-!-cyt [] has quit [Quit: leaving]

00:50<mamour>wow $132
00:51<mamour>I thought I paid a lot more for mine
00:51<mamour>I went on to and looked for something top of the line
00:51<mamour>in face
00:51<mamour>in fact
00:51<user01>mamour, i got the AMD Athlon 64 3000 939 Pin 90nm Boxed ADA3000BIBOX
00:51<mamour>there's a AV8 on pricewatch NOW that's $250
00:52<mamour>if you got to pricewatch and search for "av8" there's one there for $250 how messed up is that
00:52<user01>really? hmmm
00:52<user01>well it is old hardware now
00:52<user01>it is classic
00:53<user01>maybe they were trying to get rid of them because they were going bankrupt
00:53<mamour>yeah prolly
00:53<user01>i have the 3rd eye version zith the external monitor thing
00:54<mamour>tough to tell from my bank statement b/c it doesn't say specifically what was purchased
00:54<mamour>but I can request copies of the receipt
00:54<user01>mamour, you can forge a copy with my html version
00:55<user01>just change the dates, monarch is closed so they will never know
00:55<mamour>I suppose I could but
00:55<mamour>godforbid if I get caught

01:03<user01>are there any ways to get around a websense filter?
01:03<mamour>what's that about online stores ?
01:03<mamour>user01, I just did a lab on proxy filters
01:04<mamour>if websense is a proxy filter, and you have no choice but to use it, I think you'll have to bear with it
01:05<mamour>I think you can try entering the IP address of the site, instead of the domain name
01:05<user01>mamour, yeah i tried a text based browser off my flash disk and it was blocked too
01:05<user01>user01, it just seems weird that if ping like at the comand line it all goes through
01:07<mamour>user01, here's another purchase - microtech computers for $481
01:07<user01>mamour, i was getting around it putting ip addresses in instead for a few sites
01:07<mamour>could be that one
01:07<mamour>and now microtech is merged with PCDirect
01:08<Guest1952>__> i want : to replace
01:08<Guest1952>help with gnome??????
01:08<mamour>what does gnome have to do with it
01:08<user01>mamour, why is it that i can ping websites like yahoo but yet websense blocks them? doesnt make sense
01:09<alaya>hey there, am doing a new install with lenny and trying to set up encryption
01:09<mamour>pings operate on a different port
01:09<mamour>ping traffic may not be blocked by the proxy
01:09<user01>mamour, oh
01:09<mamour>just like nslookups
01:09<alaya>it seems the only option via the installer is "guided - use entire disk and set up encrypted lvm"
01:09<mamour>or "dig"
01:09<mamour>have you used dig before ?
01:09<mamour>Domain Internet Groper
01:10<mamour>you may very well be able to do additional things like remote desktop or even IRC uses a different port than http which is 80
01:10<mamour>I guess you're behind the websense filter now ?
01:10<user01>nope im at home
01:11<user01>mamour, what if i scanned for open ports . . .
01:12<user01>and used and changed my home ssh port to eb an open one on that computer
01:12<user01>and then just sshd into that and used the internet?
01:13<user01>i think 22 was blocked
01:13<user01>but there were otehrs that were open
01:14<mamour>well you can SSH but you'll get limited browsing
01:14<mamour>because ssh is all text-based
01:14<mamour>you may want to remote into the computer

03:51-!-mode/#debian [+l 317] by debhelper
03:52<wferi>Hi! What's the policy regarding daemons which create and remove their own PID files and also drop privileges? They can't remove their PID files on exit. See bug #411046.
03:53<wferi>nagios-nrpe-server has to create it's PID file before dropping root privs, because /var/run is 0755 root:root, so it traps itself.
03:53-!-john [] has joined #debian
03:54<wferi>The init script could clean up after it, but the error message is already in the log by then.
03:54<wferi>Or the init script could take over the responsibility of creating and deleting the PID file, which seems wasteful...
03:55<dondelelcaro>wferi: it should create a subdirectory of /var/run which is owned by its user, start, drop privs, write the pid, then go on.
03:55<dondelelcaro>wferi: but it *also* shouldn't matter if the pidfile is there and the daemon has stopped
03:55<wferi>That sounds pretty sane.
03:55-!-supercube [~supercube@] has joined #debian
03:55<wferi>Yep, it doesn't cause much of a problem, just an error in the logs. Things work all right nevertheless.
03:56-!-supercube [~supercube@] has quit []
03:56<wferi>Thanks for the tip, I'm including it in the bug report.
03:56<dondelelcaro>another method is to just have it write it and have the initscript delete it after stop returns success.
03:56<dondelelcaro>either way is fine
03:56<wferi>Sure, I just wondered what the usual policy was.
03:57<wferi>Actally, if I create the non-root subdir from the init script, I can go by modifying the config only.
03:58<wferi>Deleting the PID file works even if it's created there before dropping privs (which is probably a bug OTOH).
03:58<taeschd>el caro esta aqua
03:59<dondelelcaro>(that's specific to relatively large directories)

06:47<Woet>And how to find that information?
06:47<dpkg>*** NEWS FLASH! *** Your box does not come with every app, tool and utility known to debiankind installed already. 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
06:48<dpkg>popcon is probably the Debian Popularity contest. See results at or install popularity-contest to participate. do the dpkg-reconfigure popularity-contest right after you answered all debconf stuff, or the basis for what packages appear on the first few cds/dvds etc (by rank)
06:48<dpkg>hmm... debtags is, or a great system for package searching, or apt-cache show debtags, or the way to go!, or
06:48<Woet>Nice that my browser crashes with such a huge list on popcon.

11:15<twb>tark: that program is provided by the `menu' package.
11:15<tark>su does work but for instance to run gadmin-proftpd from gnome menu the command is the .desktop file uses su-to-root
11:15<twb>Don't ask me *why*...
11:15<twb>tark: .desktop normally requires menu
11:15<twb>At least, so I thought.

14:35-!-Tirzan [] has left #debian []
14:35<twb>fxiny: the semantics of Recommends is that "normal" people should honor them, and only people who know better should break them. Therefore the correct behaviour is that they are installed unless they are explicitly broken, but because historically this hasn't been done and because it shifts effort onto the actively voting part of the Debian community, it apparently isn't happening.

14:35<Admin>valdyn no posts on the site
14:35<twb>Furthermore, at least one package maintainer told me (yesterday, but I forget which package) that they refused to use Recommends as specified by the Debian Policy specifically because Recommends relationships are currently ignored.
14:35<INT_80h>requires relationships are required, recommends rels are recommended :P
14:36<Admin>valdyn kernel is gr8 i have problem with fglrx i dont know how to make module for custom kernel
14:36<twb>I remember, it was openafs-dbserver

14:36-!-krakatoa [] has joined #debian
14:36-!-krakatoa [] has left #debian []
14:36<INT_80h>i think more than one maint is using recommends improperly...they recommend a lot of useless frikkin stuff
14:37<twb>At least within aptitude, it is a one-line change to change opt-out to opt-in (or vice-versa).
14:37<twb>INT_80h: and these are bugs that should be fixe
14:37<valdyn>dpkg: fglrx =~ s# See for a non-Debian installation method.##
14:37<dpkg>OK, valdyn
14:37<twb>INT_80h: the REASON they recommend stupid things is BECAUSE they're opt-in!
14:37<dpkg>The binary driver made available by ATI. See <fglrx one-liner> for installation. see </msg dpkg ati>
14:38<twb>For example, #386360
14:38<INT_80h>it seems to me it would take a lot of work to completely clean up the recommends relationships of the apt repos
14:38<valdyn>fam is recommended
14:38<INT_80h>so that you wouldnt constantly get shit that was sorta related maybe helpful
14:38<valdyn>which is horrible if followed
14:38<twb>INT_80h: and every year, the number of packages grows
14:38<twb>INT_80h: all the better to do it now
14:39<INT_80h>i can see your point, but the point is that the recommends relationship was designed differently than it's being used
14:39<INT_80h>until the current state matches the desired one, apt should be opt-in for recommends
14:39<twb>INT_80h: not designed, *specified*
14:40<INT_80h>because the sort've colloquial usage of recommends is "related and maybe useful"
14:40<twb>INT_80h: but that will never be the case because there is no incentive for maintainers, in an opt-in system, to fix their policy non-compliance
14:40<INT_80h>not "please install unless you know better"
14:40<INT_80h>your supposition of forcing maintainers to fix puts users on the frontline of shit city
14:41<INT_80h>you sacrifice users for some maint incentive
14:41<valdyn>INT_80h: puts users of sid ...
14:41<valdyn>INT_80h: thats ok.
14:41<twb>INT_80h: it puts experimental or unstable (and maybe testing) users on the "front line"
14:42<twb>Nor do I consider accidentally installing fam to be "shit city".
14:42<Admin>valdyn i have x300 and made custom kernel i have latest ati drivers also dont know how to make kernel headers for my custom kernel
14:42<valdyn>Admin: do you have issues understanding what dpkg said?
14:42<dpkg>The binary driver made available by ATI. See <fglrx one-liner> for installation. see </msg dpkg ati>
14:42<INT_80h>i think if every small install you make comes with unexpected and frequently unnecessary packages
14:42<twb>INT_80h: compare "every small install" to "every large install" -- I suspect the latter are in the vast majority.
14:42<fxiny>twb: i think installing all recommended is not logic
14:43-!-jello [] has joined #debian
14:43<valdyn>!fglrx one-liner
14:43<dpkg>well, fglrx one-liner is update-pciids ; apt-get install module-assistant fglrx-driver fglrx-control fglrx-kernel-src && m-a a-i fglrx && modprobe fglrx && echo fglrx >> /etc/modules && dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg. Contrib and non-free sources needed. ask me about <non-free sources>
14:43<twb>fxiny: I'm saying make it *opt-out* -- you can still break it, and with ONE LINE of config you can make a host go back to opt-in.
14:43<INT_80h>twb: i don't follow; are you saying there are more large package installs than small ones
14:44<twb>fxiny: if admins are so fucking lazy that they prefer apt to disagree with the policy manual rather than write one line, then I don't know how Debian doesn't end up like RHEL
14:44<INT_80h>i see your points and can't disagree too strongly, twb; i still think maints should fix it first, so users arent always having to be told the opt-in trick
14:44<fxiny>twb: i see now "the out and the in"
14:44<twb>INT_80h: I'm saying that the number of hosts that care about saving 100MB of disk and 10MB of RAM are in the minority.

14:46<INT_80h>but whatever, it wont be the end of the world if it goes opt-out...just depresses me to make a decision that inconveniences users to force maints of their butts to restore spec
14:46<valdyn>Admin: dpkg tried to tell you that yo should run "update-pciids ; apt-get install module-assistant fglrx-driver fglrx-control fglrx-kernel-src && m-a a-i fglrx && modprobe fglrx && echo fglrx >> /etc/modules && dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg" after adding contrib and non-free sources
14:46<twb>The current semantics make things hard for new users to save people like us the effort of writing ONE EXTRA LINE to .aptitude/config or apt.conf
14:46<valdyn>Admin: now please ask which specific part is it you dont understand.
14:46<fxiny>twb: am i wrong or just aptitude asks for recommended ?
14:46<INT_80h>do you think the recommended packages help newbies? ive never seen anything useful in them but docs
14:46<twb>fxiny: I'm not sure about the default semantics of aptitude anymore
14:47<twb>INT_80h: what about installing Xorg when a user asks for a window manager?
14:47-!-AleFranz [] has quit []
14:47<INT_80h>so this user theoretically says apt-get install gnome; and you want him to get xorg if he doesnt have it?
14:47<INT_80h>that ought to be in depends
14:47<INT_80h>not recommends
14:47<twb>INT_80h: that will NOT install an x server
14:48<valdyn>INT_80h: umm?
14:48<INT_80h>why not?
14:48<Admin>valdyn so thats basically what i have to do when i boot from new kernel right?
14:48<twb>You can run GNOME on a remote X server
14:48<fxiny>twb: because i use aptitude only since etch release , i run apt just to check packages version so to add 'em to my records
14:48<valdyn>Admin: no, not really, a large part of that line is for switching to fglrx from a i different driver, its not needed when you already use fglrx to reconfigure the xserver
14:49<twb>It is correct (that is, agrees with Debian Policy) for X clients to Recommend (not Depend) on an X server.
14:49<twb>But a new user would expect installing X clients to result in an X server being installed.

14:50<althaser>what's the difference between 86 ntfs and 97 ntfs file system please ?

14:51-!-poiqwepoi [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
14:51<valdyn>Admin: this is very very simple, you got handed a command, that is long, but cut & paste works. You run that command, done.
14:51<Engywuck>we need a mor sophisticated "recommends" version
14:51<Admin>valdyn i dont understand the procedure
14:51<twb>But I think it would only inconvience them seriously for a month or so, while the dumbest Recommends get fixed, and then inconvience them only slightly (one line per host) after that.
14:51<valdyn>Admin: the part between "" is the command, you cut & paste it into a terminal, then hit enter
14:51<Engywuck>"strongly recommended" = install, unless you know what you are doing = opt-out
14:51<twb>Engywuck: USE FLAGS!! >troll<
14:51<fxiny>twb: so the question is : what qualify a packege as a recommended ? do 100 nodes admins needs differs from normal users ?
14:51<Engywuck>"recommended" = most people want it = opt-out
14:51<twb>Engywuck: that's basically my arguemtn.
14:52<Engywuck>"might be related" = opt-in
14:52<twb>Engywuck: that's Suggests
14:52<Admin>valdyn ok will do that but my understanding is still vague haha thx a lot:)
14:52<Engywuck>nut with the current system that's impossible, sorry
14:52<Engywuck>ok, then at least split recommends
14:52<valdyn>Admin: understanding is not required, but each command involved probably has a manpage too
14:52<twb>You can see the exact wording in the debian-policy package, policy.txt.gz, section 7.3.
14:52<fxiny>i don't think aptitude or apt should care about humans
14:52<INT_80h>so basically people are using recommends in the manner of suggests?
14:52<twb>INT_80h: yes
14:53-!-dli__ [] has joined #debian
14:53<INT_80h>i worry that we'll get hit with a lot of users complaining that trying to install something ends up installing unneeded packages...but i think maybe that would be worth dealing with to get recommends fixed
14:53<INT_80h>so i guess you've convinced me
14:53<twb>INT_80h: they're scared to use Recommends correctly because with opt-in semantics that would result in unusable systems (e.g. openafs-dbserver needs openafs-clients only when making a new cell)
14:54<twb>INT_80h: now we just need to convince all these other people :-)
14:54<INT_80h>the difficulty is actually in fixing it...we cant just move everything from recommends to suggests, although that would be the simplest (then move back anything a newb really probably needs)
14:55<Admin>valdyn ok thx a lot at least u didnt blocked me from speaking as some of people here did
14:56<Engywuck>why not add an "old-recommended" that's still opt-in and a new recommended with the sorrect *enforced* policy?
14:56<twb>INT_80h: you fix it by reporting bugs when you notice the faulty recommends, 05:38 <twb> For example, #386360
14:56<Engywuck>oh, and an automatic bug report if old-recommended is used :)

15:45<jrolland>My debian server crashed, wouldn't load nautilus, and now I am trapped at the console prompt
15:46<jrolland>How do I get back to runlevel 6?
15:46<Rik_>runlevel 6 is reboot
15:46<Rik_>you can check if your graphical login manager is still running and restart it if necessary (xdm, gdm, kdm)
15:47<jrolland>I'm not sure I'm explaining this right: when i restart, it doesn't put me into runlevel 6 - it puts me at the prompt only
15:47<jrolland>How do I check if the gdm is running?
15:47<Rik_>ps -ef | grep gdm
15:48<Rik_>runlevel 6 means reboot the system. Debian starts in runlevel 2 by default
15:48<Rik_>if /etc/init.d/gdm exists, try running "/etc/init.d/gdm start"
15:49<jrolland>OK, gdm wasn't running, I installed it with apritude

16:08<fxiny>!setting time
16:08<dpkg>from memory, setting time is if you're using a coexisting DOS/Win on your x86, put UTC=no in /etc/default/rcS else put UTC=yes. use tzconfig to set the right timezone, then use date (man date) to set time (avoid doing that when precious applications are running, some might get confused). Now do hwclock --systohc if RTC is local, or hwclock --systohc --utc if UTC. Erase /etc/adjtime and repeat the previous command again. This prevents wrong time drift ...

Even if the channel happens to be less helpful, support for distributions other than Debian is offtopic on #debian. See also <based on debian>.

18:01<Kokon>hi some idea how to use X11-Forwarding without ssh?
18:03<RedProphet>why would you want to?
18:05<Kokon>trying how the performance is without ssh. Just a test in a local network.
18:05<RedProphet>ssh is encrypted telnet
18:05<RedProphet>and i suggest not unencrypting it
18:05<RedProphet>most of the performance comes from the server
18:06<Kokon>i know... i just want to test how is the diference...
18:06<RedProphet>i dont think you can
18:06-!-dli__ [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
18:06<Kokon>k thx... hmm...
18:06<Engywuck>can you forward via rsh?
18:07<Engywuck>or try an encryption that is low on CPU

18:08<Engywuck>try adding "-c des"
18:08<Kokon>k couse some apps will slow down ssh...
18:08<Engywuck>strongly disencouraged for normal use due to being so insecure, but for testing purposes in a LAN with controllable users.....
18:09<Kokon>thx for helping :)
18:10<Engywuck>if a top on the server shows a load under 1 while forwarding X then it's not the bottleneck :)

19:42<lupine>you need 915resolution, IIRC
19:42<dpkg>extra, extra, read all about it, 915resolution is a tool to transiently modify the video BIOS of 8xx and 9xx Intel integrated graphic chipsets, to achieve certain display resolutions in Xorg/XFree86.

20:41<Engywuck>if someone is running a version called *unstable* (for a reason) s/he should be able to use bugtracking
20:42<Engywuck>use stable if you aren't willing to do so
20:42<Engywuck>or at least testing
20:42<oxymor00n>testing is even more broken than sid sometimes. my opinion is you should only use it when you know what you're doing
20:43<Seb>distros using binary packages are pretty much free of bugs anyway, I've just learnt that heh
20:43*hoopy is using testing
20:43<Engywuck>well, at least *most* of the Bugs get ironed out in the 10 days waiting period before going to testing
20:43<hoopy>went from etch to lenny a few days ago
20:43<oxymor00n>OTOH i started with debian woody and upgraded to sid pretty soon. but i didn't ask on irc :)
20:44<Engywuck>i tend to use stable whenever possible
20:44<oxymor00n>Engywuck: yeah, but sometimes because of this half of say, gnome, goes in, the rest not, and so on
20:44<Seb>oxymor00n: that's called decency, and not everyone has it :)
20:44<hoopy>i used the instructions i got form dpkg... look at the topic
20:44<Engywuck>sometimes with bpo support though :)
20:44<Engywuck>but my new laptop has only support for testing ;-)
20:45<oxymor00n>Seb: heh. with woody it was more fun though. X usually didn't work out of the box, so i sat in front of a command line with zero knowledge about linux, bash, or anything :-) good old times
20:45<Engywuck>btw: i heard gcc-4.3 breaks the kernel and some other packages, is that true?
20:45-!-heywood [] has joined #debian
20:45<oxymor00n>it exposes a but in the kernel, but doesn't break it
20:46<Seb>oxymor00n: yeah, I started around potato, X was defnitely not a guarantee at that time :D
20:46<Engywuck>you don't have lived if you didn't forge a X modeline by hand
20:46<oxymor00n>due to some changes it breaks some c++ packages, but i think most of it has been ironed out already, tbm started filing bugs a while ago
20:46<Seb>Engywuck: heh
20:46<Engywuck>manually adjusting until the screen stays stable
20:47<Engywuck>on a fixed frequency 19" display with 1024x1024 pixels so no found line matches
