00:02<twb>I want to set up a quaternary Sid/i386 mirror on my local machine. What are my options for going about doing this?
00:03<twb>No, a *mirror*.
00:03<twb>I specifically want to replace broken apt-proxy and apt-cacher instances.

00:15<Ouroboros>well, the debian site appears to have only 4.0r3, the second site is 500 and the last site does not exist
00:15<Ouroboros>maybe time to update that factoid

00:18<twb>All my hardware comes with Xandros or FreeDOS :P
00:19<twb>Ouroboros: oh, I see, you want an old CD
00:19<twb>Ouroboros: why?
00:19<Supaplex>I had to laugh that windows hcl only supported ie6+. how do they expect anyone to make the switch? haha. :)
00:20<dpkg>hcl is probably at, see to see what's supported by the linux kernel,,, <pciid ... [xxxx:yyyy] ala lspci -nn>
00:20<Ouroboros>twb: complicated answer... i wrote an installation guide for use with 4.0r2 and now i need to update the guide only... i want to make sure i am using the right installer, since there might be minor differences...
00:21<Ouroboros>but its OK, i will just use 4.0r3

00:58<silent>why are there 21 debian cds?
00:59<tehk>Anyone know how I would get dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg to act as normal? It only wants to set keyboard settings
00:59-!-justAsset [~justA@] has joined #debian
01:04<hw>silent, because approx 23000 packages fit on 21 cd :)
01:05<hw>tehk, i would try "dpkg-reconfigure --default-priority xserver-xorg"
01:05<Supaplex>and why does my bank account support high balances? ;P
01:07-!-freealan [] has joined #debian
01:07<silent>hw, would I need all of them for a standard install, or should I continue using netinst?
01:08<silent>(I'm not downloading all 21 cds)
01:08<hw>silent, you can safely continue using netinst if you have a fast internet connection ! Debian installer will downoad only needed packages
01:09<silent>hw, is there an option for something in between? something with a full cd of the most common packages?
01:10<silent>I do relatively frequent reinstalls, and I'd hate to have to tax the repositories with redundant downloads
01:10<hw>silent, yes, the first CD !
01:10<tehk>hw, thanks I resorted to adding Driver "nv" to my device
01:10<hw>tehk, good :)
01:10<silent>hw, thanks
01:10<hw>silent, i think the first CD contains Gnome, Xorg, OpenOffice, etc.
01:10<silent>great, thank you

01:44<snaggletooth>forgive me if i have improper netiquette, but I am a debian user in need of some help
01:45<twb>!tell snaggletooth -about ask
01:45-!-alanhaggai_ [~alanhagga@] has joined #debian
01:45<[machine]>snaggle: just as your question :)
01:45<snaggletooth>is anyone here familiar with dealing with X and nvidia?
01:46<snaggletooth>x is working well
01:46<snaggletooth>but when i try and game i having troble with GL
01:46<twb>snaggletooth: which X driver are you using?
01:47<twb>I can't help you. Sorry.
01:47<snaggletooth>i know it taints the kernel
01:47<phorce1_>what debian release?
01:47<snaggletooth>of course....
01:47<snaggletooth>i know i have heaped coals on my own head
01:48<phorce1_>I haven't fully tested my install yet but ... (wait, let me find the link
01:48<twb>Rhetoric is not necessary. Just patiently wait for someone who condones nvidia drivers to respond.
01:48<twb>You can also try /msg dpkg nvidia.
01:49<snaggletooth>well im not sure its the driver much as whatever happened to my xorg.conf
01:49<dpkg>methinks nvidia-lenny is
01:50<phorce1_>That's what I did to install on lenny
01:50<phorce1_>Then I manually added the load "glx" to the modules section of xorg.conf
01:51<phorce1_>The simple mesa tests work OK (glxgears)
01:51<phorce1_>I haven't had time to mess with the machine since I reached that stage
01:52<jm_>snaggletooth: get it from sid
01:53<snaggletooth>hmmm, well i will see if this helps
01:53<phorce1_>I need to copy my xorg.conf from my current machine (which is a lenny upgraded from etch with working 6200 card) to the new machine (fresh lenny install with 8500 card)
01:53<snaggletooth>you mean from sid instead of lenny
01:53<jm_>well since there is no nvidia driver in lenny ...
01:53<phorce1_>you have to either get parts from sid or do a "simple sid backport" with the sid sources.
01:54<phorce1_>I chose the "get parts" method
01:54-!-freealan [] has quit [Quit: leaving]
01:54<jm_>might need simple sid backports nowadays because of new xorg version in sid
01:54<snaggletooth>jm - im using the driver from nvidia not from debian
01:55<phorce1_>That's why the web page I pointed at has the big ugly one-liner with wget commands and all kinds of other neat stuff.
01:56<snaggletooth>phorce - okay, I'll try that and see if armagetron will give a go after
01:56-!-CrazyFoam [] has joined #debian
01:57<phorce1_>snaggletooth: I'll walk to the other room and install armagetron real quick to see if it works
01:57<phorce1_>how was it breaking for you
01:57<jm_>snaggletooth: don't
01:58<snaggletooth>phorce - Couldn't set video mode: Could not create GL context
01:58<snaggletooth>jm - why?
01:59<snaggletooth>phorce - Error: Error in bool sr_InitDisplay() in ../../src/render/rScreen.cpp:738 :
02:01<phorce1_>snaggletooth: you have already installed drivers from nvidia -- my method may no longer work for you without a clean install. Let me test armagetron, installing now but I have to walk away to the other room to mess with it since it's obviously not something I can test over ssh <heh>
02:01-!-githogori [] has joined #debian
02:02<snaggletooth>phorce - yeah i did install the nvidia drivers before and it did work for a while
02:02<snaggletooth>i think something happened somewhere after an apt upgrade
02:02<jm_>snaggletooth: because you'll have to rebuild it on every dist or kernel upgrade
02:04<snaggletooth>jm - ok, i have had to do that before on previous machines, i didn't know there was a way to build that prevented that

02:07-!-YPWang [~YPWang@] has quit [Quit: Lost terminal]
02:07<snaggletooth>jm - i have read an article about that but everytime i tried it kept telling me the package i needed wasn't available and so it failed, if i recall correctly... it's been awhile
02:11<phorce1_>VERY cool game (and I suck at it). Works fine on my system and no frame drops with all features turned all the way up (Core2 Quad, 4GiB RAM, 512MiB 8500GT)
02:12<phorce1_>1440x900 on a 22" LCD
02:12<NinjaMan>phorce1 - what game are you referring to?
02:13<phorce1_>(it's my new "play toy" that I don't have time to play with. Plan to try to also get MythTV working on it sending HiDef out to my TV using a DVB-S card)
02:13<phorce1_>NinjaMan: Armagetron
02:13<twb>bleh, the cycles look ridiculous
02:13<twb>gltron cycles actually look *right*
02:14<phorce1_>snaggletooth: read through your xorg.conf and make sure the glx module is being loaded
02:14<twb>phorce1_: read through /var/log/Xorg.0.log would be better.
02:14<twb>GLX is probably loaded implicitly.
02:14<phorce1_>twb: I don't play a lot of games. Solitaire mostly. ;-)
02:15<twb>xmoto and crawl, here.
02:16<phorce1_>twb: On my fresh lenny install dpkg-reconfigure of X creates a VERY bare-bones xorg.conf. No modules, standard vesa video driver (ie, no driver listed in the DEVICE section), etc.
02:16<snaggletooth>phorce - dpkg: error processing /usr/src/nvidia-kernel-source_169.12-1_i386.deb (--install):
02:16<snaggletooth> package architecture (i386) does not match system (amd64)
02:17<snaggletooth>what should i change that to?
02:17<twb>phorce1_: you can just delete xorg.conf on many systems, now
02:17<twb>I only keep it around for Virtual 1600 1680
02:17<phorce1_>snaggletooth: heh -- you didn't specify. You need to pick the amd64 packages (if they exist)
02:18<Supaplex>sup phorce111111111111111111111___________________________________________________________________
02:18<snaggletooth>phorce - sorry, i has the amd 64
02:19<phorce1_>twb: I had REALLY ugly video before I added the glx module and set the nvidia driver by hand
02:19<twb>snaggletooth: you cannot install _i386.deb packages on an amd64 Debian system. This is a fundamental problem in dpkg and will not change in the near future.
02:19-!-NinjaMan [] has quit [Quit: Leaving.]
02:19<twb>phorce1_: serves you right for buying nvidia hardware.
02:19<phorce1_>snaggletooth: Go to and search the sid repositories for nvidia on the amd64 arch
02:19<phorce1_>hey Supaplex
02:20<twb>Or he could just use m-a.
02:20<dpkg>To use an NVIDIA graphics card with Debian, see If you've done it before, ask me about <nvidia one-liner> for a reminder. or If using a later release than Etch, ask me about <nvidia_post_etch>
02:20<twb>!nvidia one-liner
02:20<dpkg>nvidia one-liner is probably apt-get install nvidia-kernel-2.6-`uname -r | sed 's,.*-,,g'` nvidia-settings nvidia-glx && dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg (if you're on amd64, also install nvidia-glx-ia32. Using sarge? Ask me about <nvidia_sarge>. Homegrown or kernel from testing/sid: <nvidia_post_etch>. If you're using a Geforce2 or older: <nvidia_legacy>.
02:20<phorce1_>none of that works for lenny, the packages don't exist
02:21<twb>Then I guess he needs to make a hybrid system.
02:21<phorce1_>either have to do a simple sid backport or grab the packages manually from sid
02:22<phorce1_>twb: no no no no. That gets REALLY ugly.
02:22<phorce1_>My system is no hybrid -- I did this:
02:22<dpkg>nvidia-lenny is, like,
02:23<snaggletooth>uhm how's about i just change the i386 at the end to amd64 and see if it works?
02:23<phorce1_>Just manually grabbing the packages keeps apt(itude) from trying to upgrade the whole da** system to sid
02:23<twb>phorce1_: that's called pinning.
02:23<phorce1_>snaggletooth: or you could look on and find the real name like I did for i386. ;-)
02:24<twb>Although you can actually do that even without pinning, just by setting the default release in /etc/apt/apt.conf
02:24<phorce1_>twb: even when attempting to pin the nvidia packages the apts want to upgrade other stuff that is actually already available in lenny
02:25<phorce1_>It's really ugly
02:25-!-mantikan [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
02:25<jm_>snaggletooth: just find it on -- you also get downloa dlink there
02:25<twb>phorce1_: you are wrong.
02:26<twb>phorce1_: if those are your symptoms, then it means you screwed up, not that the process itself is faulty.
02:26<snaggletooth>it worked, almost...
02:26<phorce1_>twb: I tried twice, on the third clean install I did it the "manual way"
02:26<snaggletooth>bash: /dpkg-reconfigure: No such file or directory
02:27<phorce1_>snaggletooth: oops -- my bad
02:27<twb>snaggletooth: dpkg-reconfigure is in /usr/sbin, not /.
02:27<twb>phorce1_: my remarks remain the same.
02:27<phorce1_>fixing now
02:28-!-meandtheshel1 [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
02:29<snaggletooth>so should i just refresh that page you gave me before?
02:30-!-u-it [] has joined #debian
02:30<phorce1_>snaggletooth: if everything else ran just do the dpkg-reconfigure by hand. No need to do it all over again
02:30-!-u-it [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
02:30<phorce1_>snaggletooth: and you may not need to do tha
02:30<phorce1_>snaggletooth: if your xorg.conf already has the nvidia driver and glx module lines
02:31<snaggletooth>it might have
02:31<phorce1_>that's why I said earlier to look at your xorg.conf (or the log as twb suggested) to see if the glx module was getting loaded
02:32<snaggletooth>but i can always compare/contrast what's there now and what's on the backup
02:33<phorce1_>twb: I may have screwed up trying pinning. But I stared at all the one-liners and other suggestions until my eyes were crossing so I just backed up and looked at in a "what are these commands actually trying to do?" way. And I found my own way to accomplish it.
02:34-!-PitTux64 [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
02:34<phorce1_>twb: What do you suggest for good video if not nVidia? (and not in the $300+ range either)
02:35<twb>phorce1_: intel i9x0 onboard
02:35<twb>I've also had good results with Matrox G450s and ATI Radeon 9000s.
02:36<phorce1_>twb: the ATI drivers are worse than nVidia. I haven't tried Intel yet.
02:36<twb>The Free ATI drivers are *much* better than the Free nvidia drivers, and the r250 chipset is well understood, unlike r300 through r900.
02:36<snaggletooth>ok, well I'm about to reboot and see what's up.. if I'm successfull would you appreciate me logging back in here and saying so?
02:37<phorce1_>snaggletooth: we're pretty relaxed. Notify us or don't.
02:37-!-helix [] has joined #debian
02:37<snaggletooth>lols, ok well my fingers crossed
02:37<jm_>snaggletooth: you don't need to reboot
02:37-!-meandtheshell [] has joined #debian
02:38<snaggletooth>well then how should i restart x?
02:38<phorce1_>twb: I'm trying to push the limits and I couldn't get HiDef out of the All-In-Wonder I had (a 9800 I think)
02:38-!-firewallcz [] has joined #debian
02:38<jm_>how do you start X?
02:38<phorce1_>snaggletooth: logg out of X and back in
02:38<twb>If you are trying to "push the limits" with respect to graphics cards, DO NOT run a Free operating system.
02:38-!-rrm [] has joined #debian
02:39<snaggletooth>will that work with gdm?
02:39<twb>phorce1_: to set up a hybrid testing/unstable system, which *only* upgrades packages from Sid if they are already newer than the Lenny version, add APT::Default-Release "testing"; to /etc/apt/apt.conf
02:39<phorce1_>twb: rephrase -- trying to push the limits WITHIN a free operating system
02:39<twb>phorce1_: that seems rather pointless.
02:40<jm_>exit from X ; invoke-rc.d gdm restart
02:41<phorce1_>twb: I like the other things my linux boxen can do at the same time that I use them as a desktop. And there are quirks in Windows that just annoy the heck out of me to the point that I'd rather work 3 times as hard to make something work under Linux.

02:42<twb>Tremulous, for example, runs fine at 1600x1200 on a r250.
02:42<twb>(Well, Tremulous isn't DFSG Free, now I come to think of it.)
02:43<phorce1_>the modern gpu and non-free driver is to try to get hi-def satellite TV playing later at a full 1680x1050 with no frame drops

02:48<jm_>why such an expensive motherboard?
02:48<jm_>I paid 91EUR for motherboard, 145EUR for CPU (E8200) and arround 180 for 8800GT (with Zalman cooler)

06:31<dpkg>Your distribution may be based on Debian, but it is not Debian, and it unlikely lives up to Debian's standards (see <Debian policy>). Only Debian is supported on #debian. If your distribution has an IRC channel, you can use it instead. Even if your distribution has fewer people in its IRC channel, or doesn't have one, support for distributions other than Debian is offtopic on #debian.

07:05<Snurglewozzle>sorry, I couldn't really understand how to solve the problem. It is just saying that is something you can't do to upgrade, but I just wanted to install a kernel package, and now everything is blocked : /

07:25<Gekz>other than the bios saying "No OS found"
07:25<jm_>Gekz: exactly that, no boot

07:25<Gekz>its the same as it setting a boot flag on the ext3 if the installer doesnt complete

13:18<dpkg>it has been said that acpi is Advanced Configuration and Power Interface -- a power management interface that gives more control to the BIOS, or horribly horribly broken. for suspend software check , or "run this arbitrary code in ring 0", or, or generally better than APM but see also <swsusp>, or for a list of supported systems/BIOSes, see ...

13:21<dpkg>1) run alsaconf as root 2) add yourself to the 'audio' group (log out and log in again) 3) use alsamixer and unmute channels and raise levels (also try muting some channels) 4) arts or esound stopped? 5) OSS modules unloaded? 6) speakers on? 7) modprobe snd-pcm-oss 8) does "cat /dev/urandom > /dev/dsp" work for root? Test your sound with aplay and a wav so codec issues don't confuse the situation.

17:07-!-neekofab [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
17:07<sworoc>Ctrl + Alt + Esc ?
17:07<Gathond>Double: usually by using whatever method the program uses
17:07<dondelelcaro>Double: send it a sigterm or similar.
17:07<cahoot>pkill firefox?
17:07<Double>sorry i am a nube so whats's a sigterm?
17:07<Gathond>Double: if that fails use kill or some other tool for sending signals to processes
17:07<Gathond>or whatever process viewer your desktop system used
17:07<dondelelcaro>Double: it's a signal; man kill; for details
17:08<Double>allright i'll check that out
17:08<stroyan>Double: Alt-F4 is pretty universal for closing the program that the mouse is over.
17:08<dondelelcaro>save when it's not

17:09<Double>no the thing is it is not showing in the taskbar but whenever i open firefox or iceweasel it says that cannot open it has to close the previous not responding one to open a new one
17:09<cahoot>Double: leftover lockfile?
17:10<Double>no idea what a lock file is
17:10-!-wamtty [~wamtts@] has quit []
17:10<dondelelcaro>Double: because there is still an instance of firefox running
17:10<dondelelcaro>Double: pkill -9 -f firefox; or similar.
17:10<Gathond>Double: a file used to keep track of locks, in the case of firefox to ensure only one instance runs using the same configuration directory
17:11-!-phillipsjk [router@] has joined #debian
17:11<Gathond>it might be leftover because a. firefox still runs or b. firefox crashed and did not manage to remove it
17:11<cahoot>Double: might be found in $HOME/.mozille/firefox/..
17:11<dondelelcaro>firefox does not use lockfiles like that

17:12-!-mode/#debian [+l 358] by debhelper

17:12<Gathond>dondelelcaro: true, but I'm unsure whether that still prevents it from starting (or presenting a popup)
17:12<Double>thanks donde carlo the pkill -9 -f worked

20:10<Rydia>lacking a cd/dvd drive , working floppy drive and only with network access i'm kinda stuck
20:10<Rydia>the net installer does not seem to detect my pcmcia ethernet card at all
20:10<Guest665>whos there
20:10<Rydia>it is supposedly rtl8139c compatible
20:10<doub>Rydia: i've been told there's a windows based installer these days

20:10-!-faw [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
20:11<Rydia>doub - well that's what i have used
20:11<Rydia>The laptop is a Compaq Presario 1277 - k6-2 433MHz CPU, 192mb RAM, 9gb hd (1.2gb free)
20:12<doub>Rydia: you can go for the HD install method, see install guide
20:12-!-sworoc [] has left #debian [If knowing is half the battle, what is the other half?]
20:12<phillipsjk>Rydia: boot-floppies!
20:13<Rydia>the installer does boot, it just fails to detect my ethernet, hence not making it possible to install
20:13<Rydia>cd and floppy installs are impossible as both drives are broken, and this laptop's warranty has long been expired/voided
20:14<Rydia>trident cyberblade 3d i7 has no 3d accelleration support in linux too so i'd probably do only 2d stuff
20:15<doub>Rydia: i guess you'll need some black magic to get that working then
20:15<Rydia>and some summon magic too
20:16<doub>Rydia: the hd install seems most indicated for you, but the trouble is getting the whole thing to boot
20:16*phillipsjk checks for a USB installer
20:16<witte>Rydia: try to use a installer with a newer kernel
20:16<doub>phillipsjk: there's one, but i guess something as old as a k6-2 won't have usb boot support
20:16<dpkg>For etch (or sarge) with up-to-date kernels, see
20:17<Rydia>i don't have any usb memcards or drives anyway
20:17<Rydia>witte - should I try the installer with the unstable option?
20:17<Rydia>also what's the best window system for 192mb ram
20:17-!-dendrite [] has joined #debian
20:17<Rydia>i know i can't gnome or kde this thing
20:17<doub>Rydia: fluxbox is great
20:17<witte>Rydia: no need for that, use the kmuto installer if possible
20:18<witte>Rydia: i use windowmaker, which is also lightweight, but there are numerous others
20:18<doub>!start a wm war
20:18<dpkg>enlightenment blows!
20:19<Rydia>i'm very familiar with kde so i'd probably want the lightest closest thing to kde
20:19<Rydia>eye candy is not priority
20:19<Rydia>i'm unfamiliar with lightweight window systems

20:20<Rydia>witte - how would i be able to use kmuto installer? it seems to be an image file
20:21<witte>Rydia: probably you want to use xfce4 for wm
20:21<phillipsjk>Rydia: did you try cleaning the CD drive?
20:22-!-faw [] has joined #debian
20:22<Rydia>phillipsjk - it's not a mechanical problem - the drive is plugged, wires seem to be OK, drive device exists - it just does not respond to anything
20:22<witte>Rydia: can't you add a drive for a while (exterrnal)
20:22<Rydia>it spins briefly after insert, but stops
20:22<Rydia>and nothing's read
20:22<Rydia>it's had this issue since 2003
20:23<phillipsjk>Rydia, That could be dirt.
20:23<doub>Rydia: maybe you can netboot from another computer
20:23<witte>Rydia: if you have an enclosure for a harddisk and a cdrom disk, it should be fairly easy to get it to work (if you can get it to boot from usb drives)
20:23-!-grummund [] has joined #debian
20:23<phillipsjk>I'm assuming the lens is buried deep in the drive though :P
20:23<doub>Rydia: the trouble is to get a kernel that sees your nic
20:24<Rydia>yeah and that's the part i'm really stuck on
20:24<Rydia>guess i'll try the unstable in the windows installer
20:24<Rydia>if that has any better support for it

20:52<gravity>redhathacker: That's what samba or any number of servers is for
20:52-!-esop [~wade@] has left #debian []
20:53<redhathacker>can we use red hat with debian
20:53<gravity>Bruce: Perhaps I'm not understanding exactly what you did. How did you use scp to delete anything? It's a copying program.
20:53<gravity>redhathacker: What does that mean?
20:53<Bruce>i use winscp to delete files in debian
20:53<redhathacker>to share files
20:53<redhathacker>useing a switch
20:53<gravity>Bruce: scp is "secury copy". It doesn't delete.
20:54<Bruce>and i have putty open, the directories that i delete still shows up in putty
20:54<dendrite>redhathacker: You mean one machine running redhat, and the other running debian, across a network?
20:54<gravity>Bruce: That said, I don't know anything about winscp, so that's not really a debian question
20:54<gravity>Bruce: Because scp doesn't delete. It just copies.
20:54<dendrite>redhathacker: Certainly, you can share files between the two.
20:55-!-mtn [] has quit [Quit: Ex-Chat]
20:55<redhathacker>but that didnt work with me
20:55<Bruce>but there is a command in debian that i used before to refresh on the files
20:55<dendrite>redhathacker: Well, then you set it up wrong, because it's commonly done.
20:55<gravity>Bruce: Assuming your putty connection is just an ssh connection in to your server, just use the terminal that putty gives you to delete your files
20:55<redhathacker>i did that with red hat and with fedora
20:55<redhathacker>and with opensuse
20:55<redhathacker>and its work good
20:56<dendrite>redhathacker: Well, then don't bother with debian. Problem solved! =)

21:03<gravity>Bruce: Don't use locate. Use ls.
21:03<gravity>Bruce: locate uses a database that is periodically refreshed. The database is out of date at the moment, so locate will still find your file.

21:25<doub>Rydia: and besides, the installer's kernel is not the same as the stock one, so you might have better luck with this one
21:25<Rydia>ah there's still an installer?
21:25<Rydia>i assumed it'd be a terminal-based linux
21:25<doub>Rydia: of course
21:26<squeeze>Is it possible to upgrade GLIBC_2.3 to 2.4?
21:26<Rydia>i'm getting the business card iso
21:26<doub>Rydia: the base you install with, say, netinst cd is terminal only
21:26<doub>Rydia: for that matter, you'd be better off with a full CD 1 image
21:27<Rydia>yeah but that wouldn't leave much disk space for installing the OS
21:27<doub>Rydia: so as to have all the tools to fiddle with your network card or whatever else doesn't want to work well
21:27<doub>Rydia: how big is your HDD ?
21:27<Rydia>9gb, only 1.2gb free, most 40+mb files are deleted
21:28<Rydia>i'm hoping for a tiny partition the size of 1gb for debian
21:28<Rydia>i don't plan on bloating it up with kdes and open offices
21:28<doub>Rydia: that's getting tough then... try getting more room free
21:30<Rydia>i only have to download the first cd?
21:30<Rydia>i was afraid of downloading all 200 or so
21:30<Rydia>and needing to burn them all
21:30<doub>Rydia: the problem is that if your network card doesn't work with the installer, the businesscard CD will be of no use: it only has the installer in
21:30<doub>Rydia: and expects the network to be OK to install from there
21:31<doub>Rydia: CD1 is base system+X server+gnome base
21:31<parmon>Lat: does that make sense? searching for all references to emails in a file? <user>@<host>.<suffix>
21:31<parmon>using grep
21:31<doub>Rydia: you can try and go with the netinst CD, which contains a base installation (terminal only, but fully operational)
21:32<doub>Rydia: from there it'd be easyer to get your network going
21:32<parmon>i hope you have a good connection
21:32<parmon>does that make sense to anyone?

22:03<Rydia>this will take twelve minutes, to get the iso
22:04<dpkg>hmm... undeleting is Linux doesn't generally support 'undeleting' files. For ext2fs *only*, use mc (Midnight Commander), umount the fs, and select "Undelete files" form menu. With ext3fs, see With reiserfs, jfs, xfs, you're SooL. some desktops (GNOME/KDE) offer a trash bin.
22:04<Rydia>also ext3 is really nicer than i thought
22:04<Rydia>playing etqw seemed faster on ext3 than ntfs
