00:00<interbird>twb: i am listening, twb; did you create a custom user and replaced /etc/skel with that?
00:02<interbird>twb: with /etc/skel you can create any user-config you want; only problem is that it is global; but to create a script to create a user with a special skel is peanuts.

00:04<twb>I'm pretty sure the popup is spawned by gnome-power-daemon, but I can't use xprop to find out the controlling process because the popup acquires a complete keyboard and pointer grab.
00:05<twb>Dumping the process table before and after shows no differences, so it's not spawning a new process; this means it could be e.g. g-p-d dbussing to gdm.

00:15<twb>I worked out how to disable "user switching" -- in /etc/gconf/gconf.xml.mandatory, create a working gconf XML tree and set /gnome/desktop/lockdown/disable_user_switching to true
00:16<Hideo>does that prevent them from startx?
00:16<twb>Hideo: startx is already disabled by telling init not to launch gettys
00:17<twb>Hideo: by default Xorg does not allow itself to be started by non-root users in ptys
00:17<Hideo>ah okie
00:17<twb>The issue was specifically that the gnome "user switch" functionality circumvents this because gdm (or whatever) is a root-owned process and is thus allowed to start new Xorgs
00:17<interbird>you might even be able to accomplish this by using gconf.
00:18<interbird>the xml's are overridden on gnome-exit

01:44<twb>Radians seems like a good guess.

01:47<brmuljo>Top fundraisers for Sens. Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Obama have begun private talks aimed at merging the two candidates' teams, not waiting for the Democratic nominating process to end before they start preparations for a hard-fought fall campaign.
01:47<brmuljo>Despite Obama's apparently insurmountable lead in delegates needed to claim the nomination, aides to both candidates are resigned to the idea that the Democratic contest will continue at least through June 3, when Montana and South Dakota will cast the final votes of the primary season.
01:47<brmuljo>But in small gatherings around Washington and in planning sessions for party unity events in New York and Boston in coming weeks, fundraisers and surrogates from both camps are discussing how they can put aside the vitriol of the past 18 months and move forward to ensure that the eventual nominee has the resources to defeat Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) in November.
01:47<brmuljo>Mark Aronchick, a Philadelphia lawyer who has raised more than $1 million for Clinton's bid, said that while her supporters have not given up on their candidate, they recognize the need to start preparing for the general election.
01:47<brmuljo>"Only if we do this right, and see this through in the right way, will there be a chance for a full, rapid and largely complete unification of the party," Aronchick said.
01:47<brmuljo>Aronchick was one of about 35 Clinton and Obama insiders who attended a dinner last week in Washington aimed at what he characterized as helping the two sides "grope towards unity."

The box spring or "divan" is a large mattress-sized box containing wood and springs that provide additional support and suspension for the mattress.

01:48<brmuljo>A dust ruffle, bed skirt, or valance sheet may be used to make the bed frame match the rest of the bedding.

01:48<brmuljo>For greater head support, most people use a pillow, placed at the top of a mattress. Also used is some form of covering blanket to provide warmth to the sleeper, often bed sheets, a quilt, or a duvet.
01:49<brmuljo>Also, some people prefer to dispense with the box spring and bed frame, and replace it with a platform bed style. This is more common in the European region.

05:28<Koston>you just preload a lib to linker which rewrites getpid() to return user inputted value
05:29<Koston>bigger problem is to verify that my lists are accurate
05:29<Koston>(I know they are, but how can you know?)
05:29<fanto666>seems that nvidia doesn't have kernel modules for amd64 kernel in i386 distribution
05:30<php>koston why any developer at debian is purista?
05:31<padski>Koston, from the numbers I recall, this is beyond what can be run on the ordinary buildd systems, but presumably the same basic ideas apply.
05:31<Koston>padski, you only need to generate 32767 keys for a given key type and machine arch

08:11<DTE>one question:
08:11<DTE>is postfix 2.5 incorporating quota support?

08:11<jm_>vmuser: majority of desktop packages don't add any overhead when apps are not running
08:11<jaakko>jm_: I wish.. installed xfce, boot time +10 s without starting xfce.
08:12<vmuser>what about a remote web interface for such a setup?
08:12<bzed>vmuser: if you need a simple dsl 'router', a linux box is more than fine. if you want to have a router to route tons of traffic, go to cisco or force10 or similar companies, and put firewalls where you need them

09:43<twb>brusqe: it's what you get on cheap (like $10 instead of $300) raid cards
09:43<brusqe>I can't seem to get hardware raid working, although the mother board apparently supports it - debian still tells me there are two drives.
09:43<dpkg>methinks fakeraid is term used for controller cards that advertise RAID functionality that is NOT supported by a hardware chip for parity. Most of these have only a BIOS ... if you use them with Debian it's suggested that you don't set a RAID in the BIOS and don't use dmraid, just use regular software RAID (ask me about <md>).
09:43-!-JL_ [] has joined #debian
09:43-!-jthomas [] has joined #debian
09:43<dpkg>well, md is the Multiple Device driver (aka Linux Software RAID). See md(4) and ask me about <software raid>.

09:44-!-pandaren [~pandaren@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
09:44<brusqe>fair enough.
09:45<brusqe>Software raid is looking like my best bet
09:45<twb>md has a fairly predictable level of suck, and it means you don't need to keep spare copies of the raid card (or in your case, motherboard) around for when the active one dies and you want to rescue your data
09:45<twb>With md, if your mobo dies you can get the data off the disks using any mobo, as long as you still run Linux
09:46<twb>It's also much easier to administer because you don't need to install badly written proprietary management tools and/or reboot into BIOS to change the RAID settings or resync the array.
09:46<brusqe>sounds attractive.

09:50<JL_>II have tried RAID with the soft RAID on the motherboard SUCKS - need to halt the system each time you want to configure. The best way to do it is at install. There is also another way to do it post install.
09:50<sep>JL_, lenny is not very stable. (as in not changing) there are package updates daily. ofcourse with apache only and not extras you probably wont see many of them. if you do your updates i would say you would live until it is stable

09:54<ra9ftm>Hi all
09:54<brusqe>.. probably not what I want for SATA drives?
09:54-!-LeGreffi3R [] has joined #debian
09:54<twb>brusqe: LVM is also very sexy, basically because it means you can change your mind about partition layout at any time, without having to restart. It also means you can move partitions from old disks to new disks without restarting.
09:54<ra9ftm>Is here HAMs on channel? looking for using baycom_ser_fdx driver from Linux Kernel.....
09:54<brusqe>hmm, as cool as that sounds, does a file server with a RAID 1 mirror really need that functionality
09:55<twb>brusqe: well, all my file servers have md RAID1 (or RAID5) and then LVM on top
09:55<brusqe>software raid?
09:55<twb>brusqe: the flexibility that it gives me later is worth the minor overhead
09:55<twb>brusqe: yes, md raid = software raid
09:56<brusqe>ah, right. Which is easiest to set up during install.
09:56<twb>brusqe: you can set up both during install
09:56<brusqe>I'm wondering if i need to.
09:57<chealer>!tell JL_ about releases
09:57<twb>brusqe: you don't "need" to.
09:57<brusqe>hmm, what flexibility do you gain? How often do you shffle partitions around?
09:57<brusqe>err, shuffle*
09:57-!-msinhore [~msinhore@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
09:57<twb>brusqe: maybe once every three years, when disks die
09:57<chealer>!tell JL_ about wwlr
09:58<brusqe>Doesn't raid provide that functionality?
09:58<twb>brusqe: no.
09:58<twb>brusqe: RAID does not allow you to rearrange, grow or shrink partitions
09:58<twb>brusqe: RAID *only* provides bitwise mirroring.
09:58-!-alphad [~alphad@] has joined #debian
09:58<brusqe>or right, but having LVM on top of raid means when a disk dies, you can throw a new one in that is a differnt size or so?
09:59<brusqe>Or am i failing to get your point.
09:59<twb>brusqe: no no, RAID1 means you can lose 1 disk of the pair without losing data
09:59<twb>brusqe: if you then stick a new disk in, it'll re-sync.
09:59<twb>brusqe: LVM means that you can go from 300GB to 500GB disks without needing to shut down
10:00<twb>brusqe: or from 300GB to 300GB + 500GB, assuming you have both pairs of disks connected permanently.
10:00-!-JL_ [] has quit [Quit: JL_]
10:00<brusqe>As cool as that is, no one is going to buy new hard drives for this box anytime soon.
10:00<brusqe>So simply raid1 would be a safe solution.
10:00<twb>Like I said, LVM basically provides you a little extra flexibility for a little overhead.
10:00<twb>Yes, just RAID1 would be a safe solution.
10:01<twb>RAID increases safety; LVM increases flexibility.
10:01<brusqe>as long as the drives are identicle size wise, it doesn't matter if theyare different brands or anything, no? I would imagine not.
10:01<brusqe>Yep, i get ya.
10:01-!-msinhore [~msinhore@] has joined #debian
10:01<twb>brusqe: for RAID1, different size drives just means the extra bytes are unused on the larger drive.
10:02<brusqe>cool cool.
10:02<Desperado>twb, wow....both LVM and RAID...I haven't tried...
10:02<brusqe>And this can be dealt with in the install of debian yeah?
10:02<twb>It's usually a bad idea to use two drives from the same manufacturing batch, because manufacturing defects tend to kill whole batches at once -- and losing both drives at the same time means you lose all your data
10:02<pleb2>twb ive had issues in the past with differnt brands of RAID1 drive
10:02-!-Torsten_W [] has quit [Quit: *Patsch* Feierabend]
10:02<pleb2>differnt cache sizes and lark
10:02<twb>brusqe: yes, d-i (unlike ubiquity, the morons) can do RAID1
10:03<ant_>brusqe, It has been said that different brands/models means you are at less risk of a manufacturing defect, though I bought 2 different manufacturer disks recently and they turned out to be the same disk rebadged
10:03<twb>pleb2: indeed, my next remark was that it's still good to get the same make and model
10:03<brusqe>ant_, lol, what a hassle :p
10:03<brusqe>So what happens when a disk dies?
10:03<brusqe>Plot in a new one and it rebuilds itself?
10:03<twb>brusqe: you get an email, and that disk is taken offline
10:04<pleb2>twb does running software RAID elimiate the problem of differnt cache sizes / actually disk space
10:04<ant_>hopefully only one dies and I get an email from the system - then pop in a new disk and it rebuilds

10:04-!-JL_ [] has joined #debian
10:04<twb>brusqe: your system continues in a "degraded" state until you turn it off, replace the drive, and add the new drive to the array and wait a few hours for the array to re-sync.
10:04<twb>pleb2: I don't know; I doubt it
10:04<brusqe>what if the drives that dies had the MBR on it?
10:04<ant_>I have never looked at cache problems: I am not that worried about the data
10:04<brusqe>is that an issue?
10:04<ant_>my MBR is on both disks
10:04<twb>brusqe: on typically installs an MBR on every drive

10:05<pleb2>brusqe, im waiting on a delivery to my datahouse, atm one of my servers has a failed RAID1 HDD, its running just as fine :)
10:05<twb>brusqe: similarly one typically RAID1's the /boot partition
10:05<brusqe>yeah, i will have /boot, swap and / all on one drive.
10:05<twb>Of course, one should make sure that the MBR on sdb points to sdb1 not sda1!
10:05-!-alphad [~alphad@] has joined #debian
10:05<pleb2>brusqe the other drive will be an identical image of the first drive, MBR and all
10:05<twb>RAID1'ing swap is both pointless and harmful
10:06<twb>Do not raid swap partitions
10:06<pleb2>twb i have a RAID1 swap :\ because of hardware RAID 1
10:06*pleb2 sad
10:06<brusqe>so throw an extra drive in, and use it completly seperate?
10:06-!-jorge [] has joined #debian
10:06<JL_>note that only RAID 1 (Mirroring) guarantees that the loss of a disk allows recovery. Not RAID 0 (striping) and to a lesser extent RAID5

10:07<twb>brusqe: the best approah is usually to have a swap partition on each drive/bus
10:08*pleb2 wonders if brusqe should be planning running into swap>??????
10:08<twb>brusqe: because they are striped, this gives best swap performance
10:08<pleb2>surely the best approach is to NOT run into swap?
10:08<twb>pleb2: if you can afford more RAM, then go for it
10:08<brusqe>pleb2, well, yes. surely, but I mean, it's a good idea to have one there anyway, no?
10:09<twb>pleb2: some kinds of computation end up blowing RAM through into swap, I think
10:09<pleb2>ye, but im saying, if you arnt planning on running into swap very often, is it worth going out your way to fit another drive to act as swap
10:09<twb>pleb2: I agree there
10:09<twb>I wouldn't add a whole extra drive just for swap
10:09<brusqe>twb, so two 750gb drives, with identicle / and /boot partitons both at Raid 1, and a swap partition on each one, just as swap?
10:10<twb>brusqe: Yep
10:10<brusqe>makes sense

10:10-!-pat93 [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
10:10<JL_>swap is only bad if you use it. if you have large memory arrays you rarely use (yse bad design but you're not the programmer) then swap is great (i.e. low rate of swap in/out)
10:10<twb>Grub just sees the RAID1 /boot as a non-RAID /boot
10:11*brusqe makes a note to read up more on this logical volume stuff
10:11<twb>JL_: heh, festival's text2wave concatenates the *whole* wav file in memory... easily several gigabytes of data for a 4-hour wav
10:12<brusqe>what? grub sees both /boot drives seperate?
10:12<twb>brusqe: no, it just sees one /boot partition
10:12<twb>brusqe: you tell it "look on sda1 for /boot" and it goes "oh, OK"
10:12-!-donfede [] has joined #debian
10:12<twb>brusqe: it doesn't care that sda1 is a RAID1 node with sdb1, and that /boot is on top of that array
10:12<brusqe>so even in a degraded state, if sda1 is dead, it'll still go "Oh, OK"?
10:13<twb>Because the md RAID metadata just lives at the end of the partition
10:13<twb>brusqe: exactly
10:13<JL_>it is ok ONLY in RAID1 more
10:13<twb>brusqe: note that this is grub LEGACY, not grub 2
10:13<twb>grub2 crashes and burns with degraded raid1 /boot
10:13<brusqe>I was unaware there was a difference :\

10:15<Gekz>syslinux with a menu ftw
10:15<twb>brusqe: remember that for maximum safety you want sdb's MBR to point to sdb /boot
10:15<pleb2>ph_wdg you can add resolutions to your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file to add possible resolutions
10:15<pleb2>it depends if your monitor config is set up to support them also tho
10:16<adelgado>how can i migrate the user accounts
10:16<brusqe>twb, i thought that part was taken care in d-i :\
10:16<twb>adelgado: to start with, debian defaults to user uids from 1000, not 500

11:33<jaakko>sam__: do you know iceweasel? it is firefox with different name
11:33<debacle>kop: is it Bug#478122: apt-cacher: "uninitialized value" in cleanup
11:34<makke>i think sam__ means the new firefox3 rc
11:34<aptituz>seems to be a typo? because 2.8 is obvious higher as 2.10 isn't it?
11:34<aptituz>hm.. probably not
11:34<sam__>yeah, I'm trying to run ff3 rc1
11:35<makke>aptituz: 8 < 10 isnt it? ;)
11:35<sam__>iceweasel? I don't know that...
11:35<morphium>how long will it take until haproxy 1.3.15 will be in etch?

11:36<aptituz>makke: well depends. normally 2.8 stands for 2.80, which means 2.10 is lower, unless you have strange versions
11:37<kop>debacle : Yes
11:37<aptituz>makke: (normally meaning in mathematical sense off course ;)
11:37<makke>aptituz: ok, you are right, but i think he really means 8 and 10 and not 80 and 10 :)
11:38<morphium>how long will it take until haproxy 1.3.15 will be in etch?

11:39<aptituz>morphium: repeating your question doesn't enhance your chance to get an answer
11:39-!-PitTux64 is now known as PitTux
11:40<debacle>kop: excuse me, but ... has this any relation to my question about iptables and packet marking ??
11:40<padski>morphium, looks like haproxy- is in lenny
11:40<kop>morphium : You can look an see if it's in etchnhalf or lenny or sid. Then when those become stable it'll be in stable. Otherwise it'll only go into a release called etch if it's in etchnhalf.
11:40<aptituz>morphium: but as it is not yet in etch (which is a stable release and therefore does not get updates except for security and major issues) it will not get into etch anyways.
11:40<dpkg>etchnhalf is probably "etch + 1/2" -- an update to Debian's stable release "etch" designed to provide support for newer hardware. It will include a 2.6.24 kernel and provide an updated installer. See: Preview installer images (not for general testing yet) are at
11:40-!-PitTux is now known as PitTux64
11:40<kop>debacle : No.
11:41<aptituz>kop: I don't think that haproxy is about supporting new hardware, is it?
11:41<kop>debacle : Thought you were responding to my question. :)
11:41<padski>are new packages (that aren't new depends/recommends) even going into etchnhalf ?
11:41<kop>aptituz : Dunno. But the etchnhalf stuff will wind up in etch.

11:43<morphium>padski yes 14.3 is in lenny, but not 15
11:43<morphium>so when will it be updated?
11:43<padski>morphium, dunno. ask the maintainers perhaps.

11:45<sam__>Is it possible to use Synaptic Pakage Manager to install the testing version of libgtk?
11:45<padski>morphium, or perhaps file a wishlist bug against the package pointing out the upstream release

11:50<jaakko>sam__: yeh, ok, I just asked, if you didn't know about iceweasel and just ended up installing latest..
11:52<ybani>padski : sorry i was on phone ..mta ?
11:52<dpkg>mta is, like, Mail Transfer Agent: a program that transfers e-mail in or out of a system, most often using SMTP. An MTA is usually accessed by calling /usr/lib/sendmail and thus usually includes that binary. Therefore, in Debian, all MTAs (<exim4>, <postfix>, <qmail>, <ssmtp>, <nullmailer>, etc) mutually conflict. Ask about <mta comparison> and <why an mta>.

15:12<drthodt_>the simple fact is as long as debian integrates gnu/linux and provides the apt system ultimately they serve their role
15:12<drthodt_>anything beyond that supporting packages ideally for it
15:12<drthodt_>is a benefit
15:13<maxb>It seems odd to me to apply a vastly more conservative upgrade policy to your httpd than your OS.
15:13<drthodt_>if apache 1.3 was that widely supported it wouldnt have been deprecated and removed
15:13<maxb>Both are, after all, pretty important.
15:13<gloin>True. Again, it goes back to what was working, and secure.
15:13<drthodt_>apache22 is secure

21:00<aloha-shin>:) I did search something about the IP, but still can't find the right guide how do I permanently fix the 2nd IP that my host gave me to the dedi I've rented. I tried the command teach me by someone yesterday but everytime I rebooted the dedi the 2nd IP is gone. does anyone here know how to fix the 2nd ip to the dedi?

21:21<Shinnnlx>haha so many try to use
21:21<aloha-shin>im using pidgin
21:22<Shinnnlx>just want to know which one will take the least RAM
21:22<azeem>Shinnnlx: how much RAM do you have?
21:22<azeem>then it doesn't matter at all
21:22<Gatton>Shinnnlx, Pidgin is ok but it's primarily instant messenger and feels clumsy for irc (to me). X-chat is nice
21:22<widrones>Shinnnlx: Im runing irssi on a machine with 32MB RAM.
