00:01-!-freealan [] has joined #debian
00:01<k-man_>is there a way i can specify to never ever ever use the optus sourceforge mirror for downloading?
00:02<k-man_>if i had my way, i would have it purged from the dns system
00:02<k-man_>god damn crap mirror

00:03-!-emonge [~emonge@] has joined #debian
00:04<lanceallott>k-man: check your /etc/apt/sources.list...put a # in front of the offending link
00:06<k-man_>lanceallott, no, i was refering to in the web browser when you try and download something from sourceforge and it selects a mirror for you
00:06<k-man_>unfortunatley, the optus mirror is a woefull attempt at mirroring. 50% of the time the file you want isn't there
00:07<lanceallott>k-man_: isn't there a way to specify a locality
00:07-!-bzed [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:07-!-bzed_ [] has joined #debian
00:07-!-ernesto [~ecrespo@] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
00:07<k-man_>hmm.. dunno,
00:08-!-bzed_ is now known as bzed
00:08<lanceallott>k-man_: some kind of checkbox or something...ya know for geographic region
00:09-!-sander [] has joined #debian
00:09<k-man_>i think it just offers that if you specificly select it atdownload time
00:09-!-sander [] has quit []
00:10<Snadder>I get 6 conflicts when I try to dist-upgrade with aptitude from etch to lenny:
00:10<Snadder>Anyone know how to resolve that?
00:10<lanceallott>k-man_: what app are you wanting to download, if you don't mind me asking?
00:11<k-man_>lanceallott, actually, i encounter this issue all the time with optus, but its ok in the browser as i can just select another mirror
00:11<cwood>Snadder: First, you can't upgrade xmms, it doesn't exist in the distribution anymore (audacious is what I use instead now).
00:12<k-man_>lanceallott, but i just tried the windows based filezilla, and it has an option to download the latest version, but it failed to download because it gets it from sourceforge, and the optus mirror was broken
00:13<lanceallott>k-man_: get the ip: for the mirror, then ping it...see if it's up
00:13<cwood>Snadder: second, I haven't used apitude to dist-upgrade, only apt-get. So my personal process is to prune all software that's giving me problems, then upgrade what I need, and apt-get install back the troubled ones.
00:15<k-man_>lanceallott, yes, i could.. but i'd rather just purge it from my life
00:15<k-man_>it causes too much trouble
00:15-!-mysuppe [~mysuppe@] has joined #debian
00:16<mysuppe>hello guys
00:16<lanceallott>k-man_: a man after my own heart...:)
00:16<mysuppe>wow..gaim package is quite impressive.
00:16<k-man_>lanceallott, if only i knew how
00:16<mysuppe>this package can connect irc using proxy.
00:17<lanceallott>k-man: dpkg -p <filename>
00:20-!-alephnull [~alok@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:22<k-man_>lanceallott, if only that worked with whole websites.... dpkg -p *
00:23<lanceallott>k-man_: ur right, I keep forgetting that you are having a browser problem
00:24<lanceallott>k-man_: i was thinking on the application level
00:24<k-man_>i run my own dns proxy, i wonder if i could route all requests to the optus sourceforge mirror to a different sourceforge mirror
00:24<lanceallott>k-man_: by the way, what is your browser of choice??

00:27<k-man_>lanceallott, yes, it is

00:28<luckylin>on the debian website, i downloaded the debian-40r3-i386-CD-1.iso does that work on 64 bit AMD chips? or did i need the AMD64 one?
00:29<k-man_>luckylin, it will work, but only in 32 bit afaik
00:29<k-man_>you'll need a specific 64 bit one if you want 64 bit
00:29<luckylin>k, thanx, i just didn't want to find out I wasted a disk
00:29<luckylin>I wanted 32 bit
00:29<luckylin>but it doesnt work, sais I have no display
00:30<lanceallott>because I'am just an ol'd living room linux user on DHCP
00:30<luckylin>i don't have it installed any more but i'll reinstall later to try and fix it
00:31-!-alephnull [~alok@] has joined #debian
00:31<luckylin>when i tryed booting the computer a screen would pop up and say I had no display, please configure your display then i was put into the terminal to fix it
00:32-!-Supaplex [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:33<lanceallott>luckylin: did you try startx
00:34<luckylin>yes, it gave me an error and then i could read an error report which was very long, basically said I had no display drivers installed that work
00:35<lanceallott>what video card do you have
00:35<luckylin>i didnt try downloading the drivers in terminal, maybe if i did that it might work?
00:35<luckylin>8800GT 512
00:35-!-jclinton [] has quit [Quit: Ex-Chat]
00:36<lanceallott>does lsmod show nv being loaded?
00:37<luckylin>I haven't tried that
00:38<luckylin>I have a nvidia 7300LE , usually that card works no matter what, I could maybe reinstall with that, then download the newest nv drivers and then put in my 8800GT, bc the drivers work for all nv cards
00:39-!-ZK [~ZK@] has quit [Quit: Saliendo]
00:40<luckylin>or i could do it all in console with the 8800gt...just don't have all the commands written down that I would need
00:40<lanceallott>luckylin: dunno...maybee..can't afford a 8800GT 512
00:40-!-umbra [~yazifeath@] has joined #debian
00:42-!-umbra [~yazifeath@] has quit []
00:42<lanceallott>luckylin: maybe you should try a few Live CD's and see if one will work, then note what module they use
00:43-!-jprice [] has joined #debian

00:47<luckylin>yeah, doesn't always work
00:47<lanceallott>and it will make you bleed
00:47<lanceallott>trying to get it working
00:48<nevyn>btw the nvidia binary driver does not support all nvidia cards
00:48-!-jprice [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
00:48<nevyn>there have been multiple points where the driver has dropped support for whole classes of hardware.
00:49<luckylin>on linux mint, it would never boot the live cd unless i took out the card and put in the nvidia 7300LE , i'de have to install it, then install the latest nvidia drivers, turn off the computer and put back in the 8800gt, upon power up the 8800gt would work

00:50-!-RIVE [~cesar@] has quit [Quit:]
00:52-!-mode/#debian [+l 336] by debhelper
00:53<luckylin>I think all i need to do is use a command that does something like this "download nv.driver put it /home/user/downloads" i'm not quite sure what the right words for that is but i've seen it done before
00:54<luckylin>then i could do "cd /home/user/downloads" "sh nvidia.driver" and it should install i think
00:54-!-muammar [muammar@] has quit [Quit: imagine a big red swirl here..!]
00:55<nevyn>luckylin: have you used module-assist?
00:55<luckylin>no, I haven't heard of that
00:55<luckylin>i'm pretty new to linux in general
00:56<nevyn>luckylin: apt-get install build-essential module-assistant then run module-assistant
00:56<nevyn>and follow the bouncing ball.
00:56-!-madrescher [] has joined #debian
00:56<luckylin>thanks =) i'll write that down and then re install debian
00:58<luckylin>oh one more thing...I don't remember the last time i installed debian, but is there an option to install grub in the partition instead of mbr? i'm using the sidux grub for my MBR and I have it just the way I want, i'de rather just add debian to the sidux grub, i know how to do that part myself

02:14<sugoruyo>how much swap should i use? i don't want to use a separate partition, just a file in my /
02:15<jm_>sugoruyo: how much RAM do you have?
02:15<jm_>1G should do
02:15<jm_>or start with less and add more if you want/need

02:15<sugoruyo>i don't think i have ever used as much as 3gb of ram in linux
02:15<sugoruyo>i just want to be able to use suspend
02:15<jm_>it's easy to use it for cache
02:16-!-HellTiger_ [] has joined #debian
02:16<jm_>suspend to disk?
02:16<sugoruyo>just installed Lenny
02:16<jm_>then you should study the requirements - I think tuxonice can use a separate file
02:16<sugoruyo>installer complained that the lack of swap would not allow uswusp
02:16<jm_>with plain old s2d you need as much as RAM
02:16-!-GhostlyDeath [] has quit [Quit: ReMooD - || Simple Doom Editor -]
02:17-!-broooder [] has joined #debian
02:17<jm_>just use tuxonice instead

02:18<sugoruyo>does it work right with gnome menus and such?
02:18<jm_>why would it affect gnome menus?

02:18<sugoruyo>i dunno
02:19-!-munckfish [] has joined #debian
02:20<jm_>Torsten_W: you're all set
02:20<Torsten_W>but nothing returns
02:20<jm_>because it only requires -I/usr/include and -L/usr/lib which are in default search paths
02:21-!-Wesley [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
02:22<mysuppe1>TrIXx: you mean system time?
02:22<sugoruyo>jm_, even with tuxonive how much swap would i need? is it supposed to be mentioned somewhere?
02:23<Torsten_W>jm_: ah, but this is wrong, realy it need -I/usr/include/ffmpeg
02:23-!-HellTiger [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
02:23<jm_>sugoruyo: tuxonice supports suspending to a file
02:23<jm_>Torsten_W: I doubt that - it just expects that programs do #include <ffmpeg/foo>
02:23<k1lumin4t1>gpg freezes when generating the key and it asks me for more "action" while I'm connected through ssh
02:23<jm_>k1lumin4t1: yeah generate more entropy
02:24<k1lumin4t1>jm_, yes but it stays there for ages
02:24<jm_>k1lumin4t1: because there's no more to read
02:24<simonrvn>k1lumin4t1: run a find command looking for some bogus file
02:24<k1lumin4t1>jm_, and how could I generate entropy if I'm not phisically there?
02:24<sugoruyo>jm_, aha, so i don't need swap
02:24<k1lumin4t1>simonrvn, ok
02:24<jm_>k1lumin4t1: network activity, some I/O etc.
02:24<jm_>sugoruyo: in theory you don't
02:24<simonrvn>and do it starting from say / or /usr
02:24<sugoruyo>thanks i'll read up on it try it out

03:28<Slydder>morning all
03:30<Slydder>i am in need of setting up a loopback alias on a lenny box. the problem is that it does not seem to be allowed. if i set up a alias on eth0 or eth1 it works. but a lo:0 or lo:1 will not activate. any ideas why?

04:29<alfadir>use defoma and x-ttcidfont-conf

05:01<Snadder>what should I replace with foo?

05:04<Snadder>and apt-get --reinstall --print-uris install iceweasel displays: Reinstallation of iceweasel is not possible, it cannot be downloaded.
05:04<Snadder>Maybe I should try another mirror..
05:04<jm_>Snadder: no, it's because there is no such version in lenny
05:04<jm_>Snadder: grb .14 from sid
05:04<Snadder>.14 of what?
05:05<jm_>iceweasel obviously
05:05<Snadder>Skrat, its a train which goes over the screen.. cool when you do typo on "ls" :-p
05:05<weasel>so he broke his system by mixing stuff and you tell him to mix it even more?
05:05<weasel>good god
05:05<jm_>no, he upgraded to lenny ...
05:06<jm_>Snadder: did your upgrade go smoothly?
05:06<weasel>he shouldn't have
05:06<Snadder>jm_, when I search for iceweasel I dont get any .14 package
05:06<jm_>Snadder: like I said, it's in sid only

05:21<Snadder>jm_, how can I do that?
05:21<alfadir>jm_: they are visible in gtkfontsel but also very jagged, does not seem to be ttf rendered. otherwise they are much smoother

06:59<jm_>uhm you think apt shall handle full / or /usr gracefully?
06:59<Skrat>Snadder; what happenned?
06:59*Skrat rm -rf's his server
06:59<Snadder>jm_, sure.. it shouldnt fuck up my system because of full disk.. then it should stop and say so..
07:00<dpkg>Put "deb etch/updates main contrib non-free" in your /etc/apt/sources.list file to keep up-to-date on security updates in stable.

07:00<Skrat>Why non free? :|
07:00<Snadder>Skrat, I upgraded from etch to lenny.. had full root disk.. and lots of packages dont work as it should.
07:00<jm_>Snadder: yeah right, everyone will tell you to restore from a backup
07:00<Skrat>Snadder; downgrade?

07:02<Skrat>Snadder; why not?
07:02<dpkg>hmm... imap is (rfc2060) a protocol allowing a client to access and manipulate electronic mail messages on a server. It permits manipulation of remote message folders (mailboxes), in a way that is functionally equivalent to local mailboxes. IMAP includes operations for creating, deleting, and renaming mailboxes; checking for new messages; permanently removing messages; searching; and selective fetching of message attributes, texts, and portions thereof.
07:02<dpkg>POP3 is a really pesky way to get email, especially if you have lots of it. An evil thing most people on the internet are stuck with whether they like it or not. See <fetchmail>. telnet pop3 |tee -a mymails; user foo; pass ****; list; retr 1; dele 1; quit. Also see RFC1939
07:03<zakame>are there any imap server comparisons?

07:18<jscinoz>Is it possible to kill a runaway process that ignores all signals?

07:19<jscinoz>I've got totem using 100% CPU, ignoring all signals and surviving an X restart :(

07:19<themill>the process can't ignore a -9 state... but the kernel can choose not to pass it on if it's in a D state, for example.
07:19<jscinoz>one moment
07:20<jscinoz>the state is the second colum of output (after the PID) given by ps ax correct?

07:21<jscinoz>last character is lowercase l
07:22<themill>jscinoz: from man ps ("PROCESS STATE CODES"):
07:22<themill> D Uninterruptible sleep (usually IO)
07:22<jscinoz>so it truly is uninterruptable?
07:22<jscinoz>because its been going for hours and i can't restart this machine as i'm backing up a few hundred GB over duplicity (and it would seem you cant resume interrupted backups with duplicity)
07:23-!-sander [] has joined #debian
07:23<themill>it's in the middle of doing IO that hasn't failed or timed out. It should be possible to kill it as a general rule... but if it's waiting for disk access then it can be uninterruptable.
07:24<jscinoz>the file it was playing was only 20mb, and it was stored locally so it couldnt be taking that long
07:24<jm_>I think they will soon merge a patch in kernel for this situation
07:24<jscinoz>and its been 4+ hours since totem crashed and got stuck like this
07:24<jscinoz>any solutions other than a reboot?
07:24<themill>No, it shouldn't be like that.
07:24<jscinoz>what if i killed the parent process..
07:24<sander>jm_, now I removed every package that apt-get couldnt find in lenny..
07:25<sander>jm_, gdm had to go..
07:25<sander>I installed it again
07:25<themill>jscinoz: probably wouldn't help.
07:25<sander>Well.. I did apt-get autoremove.. and it removed gdm and a bunch of other packages.
07:25<Skrat>it removed GDM
07:26<jscinoz>themill hmm, well one other question then
07:26<jscinoz>i went over the man page and googled it, it is impossible to resume a failed backup with duplicity correct?

07:29<themill>jscinoz: ahh sorry. I thought it was duplicity that was wedged.
07:29<jscinoz>nope totem :P

09:42<pleb2>Hey all
09:42<pleb2>How do i get my PCMCIA wifi card to work with debian lenny??
09:43<dpkg>it has been said that wifi is a silly name for 802.11 wireless networking. `Wifi' should have been a proper spec, like USB, and we'd have a few chipsets which would all work. Instead it was whizz-bang, let's include half-arsed encryption in the protocol spec, oh shit we now have to implement some not-half-arsed encryption which breaks everything, and ooh, fun let's release the same chipset again with changes to make it non-interoperable. Bah.

09:43<dpkg>PCMCIA is a hardware expansion technology for laptop computers. It stands for, "People Can't Memorize Computer Industry Acronyms". Ask me about <pcmcia cards>. Okay, okay, the real acronym can be found on wikipedia: Communication is similar to PCI or ISA, but a PCMCIA or CardBus bridge has a credit-card-sized form factor, and many cards are hot-pluggable.

To start it as a normal user, look into su or (better) use a user's crontab with an @reboot job. Or even better, do this as a udev event.

13:40<weasel>lock on removal

13:42<weasel>amol: figure it out yourself. asking on irc will just annoy people.
13:42<weasel>you can't expect us to do the homework for you, for something most of us think is stupid to begin with
13:42<dpkg>udev is at or/and Linux 2.6's userspace equivalent of <DevFS>, or dependent upon a kernel >= 2.6.15 in testing and unstable, or if you're having read-only problems with udev, read this for the solution:, or ask me about <z25>, or <udev rules>
13:42<weasel>also, I have successfully suppressed most of these memories
13:42<weasel>I'm not going to dig them up again

13:48<tq|Memphis> On apache, aptitude install libapache-mod-php5, apache-modconf apache enable php5;
13:48<tq|Memphis>what does it mean "On apache"?
13:49<themill>If you want php to be used with apache.
13:49<themill>(as opposed to some other httpd)
13:49<fxiny>like apache2 ;)

13:50<norbert_>hi, does anyone know a moderately good, free speech recognition system for Linux?
13:50<norbert_>I tried sphinx2, but it's pretty bad
13:51<fxiny>like festival ?
13:51<tq|Memphis>!install php
13:51<dpkg>To install php5 on apache2, aptitude install libapache2-mod-php5; a2enmod php5; /etc/init.d/apache2 restart; On apache, aptitude install libapache-mod-php5, apache-modconf apache enable php5; /etc/init.d/apache restart; Then restart your browser and try to access a php page. To install php4, use the same instructions but with php4 instead of php5, but ask me about <php4 security> first.

16:28<the-me>kalango, please stop querying me..
16:29<stroyan>What you said did start with "dpkg". If you address it by name you should expect some reply.
16:29<fanto666>it's ipw3945-modules-* in etch, but I seem to be unable to find anything similar in sid (was searching '3945')
16:29<dpkg>I'm pregnant
16:30<the-me>kalango, _stop_ it _now_, thanks.
16:30<stroyan>dpkg --remove dpkg :-)
16:30*dpkg rips the still-beating dpkg :-) from stroyan's chest, leaving stroyan in a coma.
16:31<valdyn>fanto666: sid does usually have much less precompiled drivers than stable
16:32<fanto666>valdyn: i even don't see any sources ...
16:32<Skrat>What IS dpkg? Is apt-get a frontend to it?
16:32<the-me> - could someone please warn the user kalango - he querys multiple peoples with OT stuff..
16:33-!-juliank [] has quit [Quit: Verlassend]
16:33<stroyan>Skrat: Yes. dpkg is the true debian package manager. There are several front-ends for it.
16:33<Skrat>Is it harder to use than apt-get?

16:35-!-llin-debian [] has joined #debian
16:36<stroyan>Skrat: apt-get or one of the others is the right answer for most things. But you may want to go straight to dpkg for some operations like dpkg-reconfigure.
16:36<Skrat>What does dpkg-reconfigure do?
16:36<Skrat>Reset everything? :|
16:36<valdyn>Skrat: thats not dpkg, but its a tool that reruns the installation scripts contained within each package
16:36<fanto666>reconfigure a package... packages have their configure scripts
16:37<stroyan>You can get it to repeat installation and with the right options it will repeat questions. It can even ask about settings that were defaulted.
16:37<llin-debian>thanks to the guys that helped me earlier getting my nvidia drivers, i got them and my card works under debian now :-)

20:56<dpkg>rumour has it, wpa is Wi-Fi Protected Access. A WPA supplicant is provided for Debian Etch and Sarge in the 'wpasupplicant' package. Read /usr/share/doc/wpasupplicant/README.modes.gz to configure the supplicant as desired.

21:51-!-sebbo_ [] has joined #debian
21:52<cwood>Unless it has always been slow, sounds like a good time to isolate the slowness. Perhaps load up an irc client in a screen session and try with/without X, GNOME, etc.
