#debian IRC Logs for 2008-05-02

---Logopened Fri May 02 00:00:34 2008
00:00<kerneld>DDr: /etc/hostname is only looked at by some apps (mail servers maybe) and a boot script which uses it to set the hostname with the hostname command
00:01<kerneld>more /etc/init.d/
00:03<DDr>when sendmail sends mail, it looks like: msgid=<25ce85a9435354be5aed7ce598faa3d0@localhost.localdomain <- and that's the problem
00:03<DDr>It should be the correct address
00:03<cwood>So read the Sendmail docs. They will tell you how to set that.
00:04<kerneld>DDr: as cwood says
00:04-!-tony [] has joined #debian
00:04-!-buelam [] has joined #debian
00:04-!-tony [] has quit []
00:05<kerneld>DDr: You may want to use exim or postfix which are easier to get your head around
00:07-!-noys [] has joined #debian
00:08<DDr>how can i clear log?
00:09-!-rehsifttam [] has quit [Quit: rehsifttam]
00:10<kerneld>which log?
00:10<kerneld>rm works for me
00:10<kerneld>(Then restart syslog)
00:10<DDr>I need to delete say: /var/log/mail.log
00:11<DDr>not delete but clear what's inside
00:11<Xenguy>DDr: why would you want to delete your logs?
00:11-!-ernesto [ecrespo@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:11<DDr>too much stuff in it, hard to read
00:11<kerneld>DDr: Linux rewards those that read documentation
00:11<Xenguy>DDr: but if you insist: cat /dev/null > <file>
00:11<cwood>Heh, keep the logs. You need to learn how to read those.
00:12<Xenguy>DDr: you should learn to grep your logs instead of deleting them IMHO
00:12<kerneld>DDr: hint: tail -f /var/log/mail.log
00:14<DDr>same thing with postfix... sends to google, rejected from yahoo and hotmail
00:14-!-noys [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
00:14-!-matsch [] has joined #debian
00:14<DDr>see.. I'm not lazy, I dont mind reading, but in this case it's hard to know what to read
00:14-!-matsch [] has left #debian []
00:15<kerneld>DDr: You want your mailserver to HELO with a canonincal FQDN
00:15-!-jclinton [] has quit [Quit: Ex-Chat]
00:15<DDr>I dont know what that means, but ok. How do I do that?
00:15-!-matsch [] has joined #debian
00:16-!-matsch [] has left #debian []
00:16-!-muammar [muammar@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:16-!-T-Wiz [] has joined #debian
00:16-!-akirch-laptop [] has joined #debian
00:17<kerneld>read The /etc/hosts File
00:17<akirch-laptop>I'm trying to follow the online kernel handbook instructions for recompiling the debian kernel but I havn't gotten a debian folder in the kernel source that fakeroot calls. Where did I go long?
00:18<akirch-laptop>err wrong
00:18<kerneld>akirch-laptop: make-kpkg was the old way
00:18-!-dargol [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:19<kerneld>that would create one for you
00:19<kerneld>dpkg make-kpkg
00:19<dpkg>methinks make-kpkg is the tool that you use for compiling the kernel the Debian Way (tm). It makes a package for your custom kernel which you can install and remove easily using dpkg. See, man make-kpkg and ask me about <kernel compile> <kp mantra> <kernel build-deps>.
00:19<DDr>kerneld, in that example the ip on second line is : which is lan ip...
00:20<kerneld>DDr: Yes - you need to have an entry in your hosts file for your public (As far as outgoing email) IP is
00:20<DDr>I dont know the lan ip for that machina, I only know internet rea;l ip
00:20<kerneld>DDr: You want to enable SMTP on your public IP too as a pre-requisite I guess
00:21-!-witte [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:22-!-soar [~luke@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:22<kerneld>DDr: is it using dhcp? Eeew. I think you want to change your sendmail to not use /etc/hosts or use another smtpd which is easily told what name to use
00:22<DDr>is it ok if instead of " bigboy mail www" I have " bigboy mail www"
00:22-!-Jalito [polo2@] has joined #debian
00:22<DDr>kerneld, I dont know what it's using
00:22<DDr>how do I find out what is my lan ip that starts with 192
00:22-!-Jalito [polo2@] has quit []
00:22<kerneld>If you don't know what IP it is using you are doomed
00:23<kerneld>cat you put /etc/network/interfaces in pastebin or something?
00:23<DDr>inet addr: <- is this it?
00:24<kerneld>Yes, most likely
00:24<kerneld>so you want bigboy
00:24<kerneld>in your hosts file
00:25<kerneld>then do: host
00:25<kerneld>just to check how it resolves
00:25<DDr>it appears that it important to have "" and not just
00:25-!-path_ [] has joined #debian
00:26<kerneld>DDr: looks like it. If that is the default way sendmail works, that is just asking for open relays up the wazoo.
00:26<kerneld>You need to know what you are doing if you want to use sendmail
00:26<DDr>I have postfix now
00:26<DDr>removd sendmail, have postfix
00:27<kerneld>postfix is eas: myhostname =
00:27<DDr>where is that?
00:28<DDr>where is
00:28<kerneld>where do you think? Look in /usr/share/docs/postfix/README.Debian
00:29<DDr>man postfix
00:29<cwood>DDr: instead of trying to compile something that works in five minutes, you will really be better served to take a few hours and read the documentation for your system and all the daemons you plan to run.
00:30<DDr>I just need to setup mail... that's all
00:30<DDr>I dont intent to be sysadmin
00:30<DDr>but you're right
00:30<kerneld>DDr: You intend to be a spam haven then?
00:31<DDr>no dude, I'm a php developer
00:31<kerneld>it is irrespnsible to setup a mail server connected to the internet without being prepared to do at least a little reading
00:31<DDr>swamped with work to do and cant get mail working
00:31<cwood>DDr: If you have a system that you're in charge of, you're a sysadmin.
00:32<kerneld>I will not help you further to 'just get it working' Sorry
00:33<DDr>you have no idea what I'm going through here
00:33-!-path__ [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:33<cwood>Actually, I do, having started out in email using RedHat 6.2 and Sendmail.
00:33-!-Atomo64 [~Atomo64@] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
00:33-!-faw [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
00:33<kerneld>DDr: I work in IT. I think I do. postfix is faster to setup and learn than sendmail so you are on the right track
00:34<cwood>I had to invest a good deal of time reading and cranking out the elbow grease, and my php/postgresql site was better for it.
00:34<DDr>I realy appreciate all you guys have done for me, dont get me wrong :)

00:34-!-noble- [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]

00:42<DDr>myhostname was set correctly apparently...
00:42-!-p_quarles [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:43<DDr>I dont even know what's my problem any more
00:43<kerneld>DDr: sendmail is a bit more quirky
00:43<DDr>no, I have postfix now
00:43<kerneld>By default, I think debian postfix uses /etc/mailname
00:43-!-dserban_ [] has joined #debian
00:44<DDr>yep, that one is set to find-guild too
00:44-!-dserban_ [] has quit []
00:45<kerneld>which would not be entirely correct in a multihomed system. sendmail is a bit of dis-assembled swiss-army knife
00:48-!-dboss [] has joined #debian
00:48-!-creeed [] has joined #debian
00:49<cwood>Presumably something deliberately multi-homed isn't default either, and the owner can always configure to their own liking.

02:53<simonrvn>!i forgot root's password
02:53<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.

05:18<itsaideatmesoidid>mark76, if the majority of the public wasn't so asleep/dumb, they would all use debian
05:18<mark76>Would help if the free version rendered properly

06:37<dpkg>it has been said that snapshots is Archive which contains all debian packages, including already removed from debian official archives because of very buggy, unusable, broken, vulnerable or some other reasons. Please visit

06:39<padski>n5|Chreek, suggest you talk to your hoster
06:39<n5|Chreek>padski: my hoster recommended me simply installing newer header files (2.6.18). however, i don't think that's a good solution, is it?

11:15<padski_>ffm, that is in experimental
11:15<dpkg>experimental is the bleeding edge of Debian Development. Packages here have been deemed unfit/DANGEROUS/untrustworthy/etc for release by the maintainer responsible for them. DO NOT INSTALL PACKAGES FROM EXPERIMENTAL WITHOUT KNOWING EXACTLY WHY AND WHAT YOU ARE DOING. #debian does not support experimental. for an actual description, see section of the Developer's Reference, or

11:30<neale>you could always compile from upstream source
11:31<padski_>ffm, "experimental" is not necessarily a description of the quality of the packaging or the software. it is the name of a repo.
11:31<padski_>ffm, often it is a sign that the maintainer cares.
11:31<ffm>padski_: is it possible to install just a single package from the repo, and not the whole thing? (yet still get updates for said package)

12:26<Communist>nope... I just don't have IPv6 set up, apparently. Livin' it in IPv4.

13:31<AsterX>padski_, well I am renting VPS so I guess it is mine
13:32<padski_>AsterX, that's fine then. private ips are for the poor :-)
13:32<zengen>Well, it's a problem I had with ubuntu-7.10, it never happened with 8.04.
13:33<AsterX>How else could it have been?
13:33<AsterX>padski_, how is it possile not to have private ip?
13:34-!-chealer_ is now known as chealer
13:34<AsterX>padski_, I have DNS A record to 209.x.x.x and in hosts file "209.x.x.x host"
13:34<AsterX>is this right?
13:36<simonrvn>that's ok. you also need a PTR record however
13:36<AsterX>I have PTR too

13:38<simonrvn>well, what is it you want? the sub-dom won't matter much

17:39<VTommy>hi guys how do i combine files again? with c something can't remember :-(
17:39<spooge>can you help with a permissions error?
17:39<avu>spooge, how would I know that without knowing the error? :)
17:39<dpkg>i guess cat is a program in Unix and Unix-like operating systems that concatenates the contents of files, reading from a list of files and/or standard input in sequence and writing their contents in order to standard output. cat takes the list of files as arguments but also interprets the argument "-" as standard input. see also <more> <less> <dog>
17:39<spooge>"You do not have the permissions necessary to view the contents of "Music""
17:40<spooge>i can view other directories/files in my external
17:40<dpkg>For more information on permissions, read info coreutils 'File Permissions' and or - for even further info see these and, or follow the setuid and setgid links found in the wikipedia pages, or

18:05<spooge>last night i tried that, too

18:05<dpkg>PATH is the environment variable that tells the OS where to look for programs. It's defined in /etc/profile or ~/.bash_profile or ~/.profile (for sh-like shells) or ~/.login for csh-like shells.
18:05<cman>avu, how can i find out what wireless card i have?
18:05<phillipsjk>spooge no. the '/' character denotse the root director when the directory you want to modify is in /media/External
18:05<cman>avu, can i use terminal?
18:05<cwood>spooge: perhaps you can create some test files and directories, practice with chmod and chown a bit.
18:05<avu>cman, lspci
18:06<phillipsjk>note also that paths are case-sensitive in *ix

19:02<tj_>Hello everyone.... I need a little advice... My first real adventure into linux was my new laptop as most of you know I have yet to take only a few steps into my journey.. However I have an old HP machine that untill now was only XP and was sharing files over samba... I have just whiped out my xp partition and am at the install screen for options to choose software to install.. I deffinately want to use it for file sharing.. so i have checked
19:02<tj_>that one... I would like to use it for a small light web server but have a dynamic IP from my ISP can i still use this? I would also like to print through this machine so i assume i want print server as well? so my question is do i need all of these choices?
19:02<witte>cman: you just need to configure it
19:02<witte>sudo modprobe rtl8187
19:02<witte>and your curtis password
19:02<cwood>tj_: you can apt-get install whatever software you want after your machine is installed. Perhaps just get it up and running first.

19:31<cman>thats what came up when i typed in what you last told me.
19:31<zarchne>(AJ using literate code to write ifup did *not* help, IMNSHO.)
19:31<witte>cman: yes, i hope there was more
19:31<witte>tj_: how is your card named? eth1? wlan0?
19:31<witte>cman: i hoped (not hope)
19:31<cman>thats all that came up.
19:32<amphi>cman: does ifconfig -a show the interface?
19:32<phillipsjk>ifconfig -a as root dumps all avialable net interfaces...
19:32<witte>right, forgot about that
19:33<witte>cman: upload the output of that command to a pastebin
19:33*phillipsjk learned that lurking here
19:33<tj_>no interface
19:34<tj_>hmmmm interesting.
19:34<cman>in a good way?\
19:34<tj_>well guys i dont want to step on any toes... give up? what next?
19:34<witte>cman: paste the full output of "dmesg" please (and if this does not lead to anything, you should really go to a ubuntu channel)
19:34<phillipsjk>did you omit the " -a" ?
19:35<tj_>witte.. about dmesg... for some reason mine gets cut off..... why is that? like its so long it wont log it or something
19:35-!-thepretender84_ [] has joined #debian
19:36<tj_>no not in a good way i just saw your entry
19:36<witte>tj_: dmesg is a command, you can redirect it to a file if you want (and it has to do something with the buffer of your terminal i think)
19:36-!-dserban__ [] has joined #debian
19:36<tj_>thanks... i will look into that

19:37*zarchne likes kern.log, it has dates.
19:38<cman>is that good?
19:38<tj_>no nothing about your wireless in there that i saw
19:38<witte>cman: it is not good, it does not have the part you pasted earlier
19:38<cman>what should i do?
19:38<witte>cman: "dmesg > file.txt" and upload file.txt using the pastebin site
19:39<witte>cman: you only have the first part now...
19:39<phillipsjk>try ifconfig WITH the -a option ("ifconfig -a")

20:44<rrm>hey room... i am using lenny. should i get kde or gnome? gnome seems to be more of pig then before under etch
20:44<abrotman>rrm: you pick .. don't ask us
20:44<cwood>rrm: install them both, use both, figure out what's useful for you.
20:44<Wyzard>rrm: I'm using sid and GNOME seems fine to me
20:45<rrm>i mean in terms of memory
20:45<witte>rrm: linux is all about choice (and there is much more than just kde and gnome!à
20:45<Kemikal>kk one sec
20:46<rrm>witte: i know... but opions make you choose... i wish i chould just get the tool that is used in gnome to configure the network
20:46<rrm>but i do not know what is called
20:46<witte>rrm: that is network-admin i believe
20:46<rrm>witte... i tried... but i can not get it
20:47<witte>rrm: it is part of gnome-system-tools
20:47<witte>rrm: apt-file search network-admin
20:47<cwood>If I want to install gnome-system-tools it wants me to install 136 packages and download 103 MB of debs. This makes me sad, and disinclined to be all gnomey. :p
20:48<rrm>says apt-file not a command
20:48<rrm>cwood... i prefer fluxbox... the gnome is too much stuff i do not use... and kde is even worst
20:48<witte>rrm: that means you don't have apt-file installed, but you can also use the debian web interface
20:48<Kemikal>Yeah, another question i have when i installed Debian 4.0R3 it said stuff about disable_Local_APIC and i had to take out my AGP Video card and it booted right up why?

21:02<dpkg>kde 4 is probably a new and not-yet-complete version of the KDE desktop. It will probably not be released with Lenny as it is not expected to be stable within the lenny release cycle. See or see also but ask about these experimental packages in #debian-kde not in #debian.
21:03<witte>tj_: that counts for me as well...
21:03<tj_>i had my network set up well windows on everything multiple versions of windows dual booting and i have completely dropped windows as of today (my file server) and i am putting a done stamp on windows... no more.
21:04<witte>tj_: I did that 5 years ago

21:06<tj_>from my reading atlease
21:06<tj_>mine works lovely though
21:06<witte>tj_: well, the reason is that some hardware manufactures still bring out stuff that needs to be backwards engineerd

21:11<tj_>BTW curtis says all the kids in his school use linux... i thought that was nifty
21:11<Kemikal>cwood: honestly i have no idea howto do the first two things i just started to learn howto use bind period, but i was smart enough to restart bind =P

21:58<stratman4300>another question... if you've got multiple installs on two different disks on the same system.... can they all be configured to use the same swap partition??? regardless of what Install is running at the time??? only one at a time of course ;)
21:58<stratman4300>just curious if you could do it or not
21:59<ranix>two operating systems cannot use the same swap space
21:59-!-imo [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
22:00<stratman4300>right.... it wouldn't simultaneously
22:00<ranix>then there's no problem
22:00<ranix>swap is not frequently used though, and you don't need much of it
22:00<phillipsjk>kemranix: there are hacks out thre to even let windows share with linux ;)
22:00<stratman4300>cuase the swap is wipe during shutdown correct???

22:08<zarchne>Generally speaking, debian will always use some swap if available.
22:09<zarchne>The amount of swap you need can vary quite a bit depending on usage pattern.
22:11<cwood>I threw 2 gb of swap on here in a fit of optimism many years ago... always thought I was being overambitious. ;)
22:11<dondelelcaro>dunno, I'm using almost that much swap right now
22:12<cwood>on how much ram?
22:12<stratman4300>I've got 2 Ram in my system and i hardly ever touch the swap......
22:12<cwood>Hm. 1 gb here and not using any swap, so says the monitor.
22:12<stratman4300>really only when i'm doing nuymber crunchin
22:13<phillipsjk>If I have a "small" drive, I try to do without swap as much as possible.
22:14<zarchne>I have my main machine setup multi-user, so swap usage can get large. I thought that was rare, though.

22:15*phillipsjk is currently running 1GB of 20GB (50 MB used)
22:18<cwood>dondelcaro: what are you using that uses that much swap?
22:18<zarchne>phillipsjk: "1 GB of 20GB"? Oh, 1GB of your 20G disk?
22:19<phillipsjk>zarchne, yes, (96Mb of RAM)
22:20*zarchne nods.
22:20<phillipsjk>I figure it is awkward to expand the swap later if you run out...
22:20<dondelelcaro>cwood: a ton of different things
22:20<dondelelcaro>phillipsjk: not really
22:20<dondelelcaro>phillipsjk: you just create a swapfile
22:21<zarchne>Something linux seems to have always lacked (but should not be hard to add) is a way to get a simple & accurate snapshot of what processes are using what swap.
22:21<cwood>zarchne: sounds like a great contribution from the person who spots the need. ;)
22:22<dondelelcaro>zarchne: there's generally no point, because swap is transparent to applications
22:22<phillipsjk>or what about an erro message before your machine locks up from memory exaustion?
22:22<zarchne>phillipsjk: That's been addressed in a couple of ways...
22:23<zarchne>dondelelcaro: sure, but people wonder about it.
22:23<dondelelcaro>zarchne: about the only useful thing to look at is what is using amounts of memory, and how fast pages are being swapped in or out.
22:23<zarchne>cwood: Yeah, 12 years later, still haven't gotten around to it.

22:24<phillipsjk>zarchne, with no sawp I would prefer a 5% reserved for root like the ext2fs default :)

23:24<curtis>the new version of debian is coming out in september
23:24<RobertAU>Hello, I just installed debian testing (lenny) in a VM (did it as a net install using the business card cd) selected the base and laptop package groups. The install seemed to go succesfully but when I rebooted to finish the installation the user that was supposed to be created in the installation did not exist? I chose not to allow login as root but could create user from the single user...
