02:15<dunken32>anyone got a hint why it tells me that ive got no operativ system when i bootup , right after a debian 4.0r3 install , ?
02:17<twb>dunken32: no.
02:18<twb>dunken32: first you must provide more information about the symptoms.
02:18<rvca2>is it in grub?
02:18<rvca2>dunken32:is it grub?
02:18<dunken32>yes its in grup
02:18<Guest93>ipod, itunes is better and i'm used to it
02:19<dunken32>thought it was something that the other hds was messing around
02:19<dunken32>but did pull all other hds , so its only the "boot" in the system and its giving the same
02:19-!-Guest93 [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
02:20<twb>dunken32: you have not told us what the error is.
02:22<dunken32>bios is telling me " no operative system found"
02:23<dunken32>when booting up the system
02:23<dunken32>after doing a fresh install of debian
02:23<twb>dunken32: did you install grub onto the MBR?
02:23-!-swors [~swors@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
02:23<twb>dunken32: you indicated that there were multiple drives. Which drive's MBR did you install grub onto?
02:23<twb>Is the BIOS configured to boot off the HDD?
02:23<dunken32>same drive
02:24<dunken32>as the install
02:24<dunken32>bios is doubled checked
02:24<twb>dunken32: why do you think it installed on the same drive as the boot partition?
02:25-!-NinjaMan [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
02:27<dunken32>did reinstall it , did pull all other drives in the system execpt for the boot disk

02:31<rvca2>dunken32: what you might try doing is use the first install disk into the drive and when getting into the boot prompt type "linux root=/dev/hda2" (exchange hda2 to whatever your hda is) and if it installed ok you'll be able to run GRUB configuration.
02:32<rvca2>dunken32: i think...

02:33<dunken32>rvca2: im not getting that far :( just after system checks im getting that error with os is missing
02:34<rvca2>dunken32: did you use the install disk? as if doing a new install and typing "linux root=/dev/hdawhatever" when it says: "boot:"?
02:37-!-aredhel [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
02:38<dunken32>ill try that just after ´the fresh instsall is ready ,
02:38<dunken32>rvca2: should be done in some mins here

02:41<dunken32>rvca2: did get a diffrent msg this time , error loading operating system
02:42<rvca2>dunken32: is your hd old? Just wondering if it may be damaged.
02:42<twb>dunken32: did you only have one HDD inserted when you did the install?
02:42<twb>dunken32: is this a peecee, or something "exotic" like a PowerPC mac?
02:43<dunken32>yes only 1 hd
02:44<dunken32>i could do the install in another hd thats no problem to see if the hd is faulty

04:44-!-slaxz [] has joined #debian
04:44<twb>weasel: coal, mostly.
04:45<twb>Nuclear power got a bad rap after Chernobyl.
04:46<click170>I'm working on something where I am frequently putting the eth0 interface in promiscuous mode, and I'm considering just using a daemon to simply keep it in promiscuous mode. There would also be advantages in the form of more accurate statistics if I did this. I'm wondering though, can anyone think of a good reason not to have the interface in prom. mode indefinitely?
04:46-!-Pepper [] has quit [Quit: Verlassend]
04:46<weasel>it causes load.
04:46<weasel>since your kernel has to deal with all the packets.
04:47-!-libereco [~libereco@] has quit [Quit: Saliendo]
04:47<click170>Good point, I had not considered that.
04:47<weasel>that being said, there are plenty of use cases for running in promisc mode all the time.
04:47<weasel>bridging, arpwatch, etc..

04:49<click170>Well to be more specific, the task is to be able to measure the bandwidth and adjust traffic control accordingly. If I used a daemon to stay in prom mode then I would have more accuracy and faster reaction time then if I periodically check, don't you think?
04:50<weasel>measure which bw?
04:50<click170>The bandwidth on my gateway.
04:50<weasel>and no, I think it's ridiculous to dump the entire traffic to just find out how much you're pushing.
04:50<click170>Not just how much I'm pushing, but what I'm pushing.
04:51<click170>I'm talking about very fine traffic control.
04:51<weasel>use netfilter to count, if you have to.
04:51<weasel>or just set proper tc rules.
04:52<click170>I intend to setup dynamic traffic shaping. If another machine is added to the network, if there is a sustained high transfer rate, I want to adapt the tc rules.
04:53<yang>click170: for a quick measurement you can also try iftop/iptraf
04:53<click170>yang: thanks
04:54-!-billy12 [] has quit [Quit: Ex-Chat]
04:54<click170>And doesn't iptables act in front of netfilter, to have more control of the packets that are processed?

05:57<NinjaMan>twb: what's the difference between #debian & #debian-mentors channels?
05:57<dpkg>rumour has it, mentors is the system that the Debian project uses to train new people to become Debian Developers or Debian Maintainers and get their packages into the Debian archive. Ask me about <nmg> or <mg>. Also see, #debian-mentors on, and
06:01<jesperj>I was going to try the "xserver-xorg-video-radeonhd" package from sid, but it wants me to upgrade way too many systems to sid for me to consider it when I do "apt install" on it.

06:03<jesperj>The reason I want to try it is because I need a driver that will run my radeon HD 2600 pro card that is able to use the nvidia non-opensource drivers at the same time, but it doesnt seem to be a sollution to that.

06:03<jesperj>Because I have 3 monitors and one nvidia and one ati card, who both are able to run two monitors each
06:03<jesperj>and from what i found I have only been able to do 2 monitors from either card with a non-free driver

06:51<marcus__>yes, but 8 GB of ram would be enough.. also did ramtesting - no errors
06:51<fxiny>8GB ? like new /. hardware
06:51<twb>No, I mean did the error occur because you had an active swap partition on, say, /dev/sda2, and then ran "mke2fs /dev/sda2"
06:52<marcus__>really new :-D

06:52<twb>Also, I find your specs offensively large.
06:52<fxiny>indeed : very /. ed ;)
06:53<marcus__>no.. part 1: / 50 GB; part 2: swap 8 GB ; part 3: 500 GB; the rest is empty (for use with lvm later)
06:53<marcus__>but I got no use if I can't install anything on it.. :-/
06:54<marcus__>the disk was completely new so no swap before
06:54<fxiny>the rest ? lvm ? wtf !
06:54<twb>mke2fs should not cause paging oopses
06:54<marcus__>for virtual machines and other stuff :-)
06:54<fxiny>that's cool
06:55<twb>That you're getting a paging oops suggests that you're killing a swap area, or that your ram/swap area is in some way faulty.

06:57<twb>marcus__: unless you can tell me what that pid was, it's not very helpful.

10:10<twb>Er, yay for evangelism.
10:10<dataangel>well i just switched from xubuntu 8.04 and was so disappointed in the quailty of the release after trying mint as well i have switched to debian, i am impressed with the package selection but unimpressed in the fact that after adding xcfe a lot of packages refuse to show up on the menus after they are installed (well at least on xcfe, I havent looked on gnome, i am not a fan of gnome or kde.
10:11<twb>dataangel: there might be a "Debian" submenu that contains the full tree.
10:11<dataangel>the gui on the install never showed up as well . and i can tell that just like on xubuntu the kqemu acclerator is not working
10:11<twb>kqemu WFM
10:12<twb>I don't know what a "gui on the install" is.
10:12-!-Bravewolf [] has joined #debian
10:12<dataangel>even though i cant see the message in a window because the qemu gui control package dosent show up in my menus
10:12<Flakk>hello people I have a very basic question. I would like to install lenny to a new hard disk (not even formatted). I would like to do it as much from the WEB as possible. But it seems to me that to start with I still need to burn a CDROM (a debian installer, or smth like that)? Is it correct? How should I proceed actually?
10:12<twb>What gui control package?
10:13<dataangel>installgui - thing on netinstallation iso and also the xcfe one
10:13<twb>qemu does not provide a GUI.
10:13<dataangel>i know, there are about 3 available, i have installed all 3 only to see one in my menus hang on i shall look
10:13<twb>dataangel: are you saying that you typed "installgui" at the boot: prompt and didn't get a GTK installer?
10:14-!-ali3n0 [] has joined #debian
10:14<fxiny>kqemu ? is modprobe kqemu giving you errors ?
10:14<twb>Flakk: get the mini.iso for etch, do a basic install, change sources.list to point to testing (lenny), then dist-upgrade.
10:14<twb>Flakk: IME the testing/unstable installers are flaky.
10:15<twb>Flakk: assuming i386,
10:16<twb>Flakk: that's a 12MB download, everything else is downloaded by the installer on an as-needed basis
10:16<Flakk>twb: thanks! so you would recommend somehow to burn the DVDs?
10:16<Flakk>yes i386
10:16<twb>Flakk: no point burning a DVD for a 12MB .iso
10:16<twb>Flakk: just use a CD
10:17<twb>Flakk: I only know how to burn CDs on GNU/Linux.
10:17<Flakk>well you say "flaky"
10:17<dataangel>wow, no . the most annoying thing right now is i am on a 80x25 screen and the usual 'dpkg-reconfigure console-tools' is not allowing me to set my console font .. i like the 8 pixel high one, i would also like to boot into a framebuffer at 1024x768 i used to achevie this with vga=792 ( i think) using grub
10:17<Flakk>I use k3b
10:17<twb>Yes, the *lenny* installer is flaky, so first you install etch and then upgrade.
10:17<twb>dataangel: it's console-setup
10:18<dataangel>ah hang on
10:18<twb>dataangel: grub legacy config is in /boot/grub/menu.lst
10:18<Flakk>twb: I have already etch, but I thought would be easier to get lenny from the very beginning
10:19<twb>Flakk: upgrading Debian is MUCH easier than reinstalling it
10:19<twb>Fucking audacious wants 40% of my CPU just to play a .flac :-/
10:19<fxiny>is voracious :P
10:20<Flakk>twb: yes, i understand, but I will install it on the fresh new hard disk, so why not choose the newest version rather than install the previous and then upgrade
10:20<dataangel>hmm console-setup not installed.. oh god and apt is already running and telling me it dosent need package etc etc etc ..... grrr
10:20<twb>Flakk: etch *is* the newest version
10:20<chealer>Flakk: no, you don't need to burn a CDROM (and FWIW, you can't burn a CD-ROM anyway)
10:21<Flakk>twb: you mean the newest stable version. but I installed etch when it was yet testing and was quite happy with it.

10:26<dataangel>intresting, i love xcfe4 but i am missing those lovely transparent windows i had in xbuttto

10:28<dataangel>guess i should switch from stable to testing, i am also very concerned because apt has listed a bunch of packages to remove, some of them i believe are a big part of gnome and or gtk stuff, the list is too long to post here without flooding the channel
10:28<\3TATUK>fxiny: read this phrase from wikipedia:
10:28<dataangel>36 packages
10:28<fxiny>average user you must install something : cd1 gnome , 2 kde . 3 xcfce
10:28<\3TATUK>Debian's current release offers three different official CDs, one for each major desktop environment: GNOME, the default, along with KDE and Xfce as alternatives.
10:28<twb>Flakk: just try it and see
10:28<\3TATUK>"GNOME, the default" ******
10:28-!-Zathras [] has joined #debian
10:29<dataangel>yep i treid the xcfe one and decided to try the netinstall iso instead (the 170 meg or so one)
10:29<fxiny>\3TATUK: i am a user and as a user i don't see any official desktop
10:29<\3TATUK>i'm not concerned about 'official'
10:29<Flakk>twb: so for you the easiest way is to net0install etch, and the upgrade, did I get it right?
10:29<\3TATUK>when it comes to debian
10:29<\3TATUK>GNOME is the default
10:29<fxiny>idon't even se a desktop cause i can totally avoid installing a desktop
10:29-!-sysop4 [] has joined #debian
10:30<\3TATUK>yes but if you avoid messing with any default options concerning the desktop at all
10:30<\3TATUK>you get gnome
10:30<twb>\3TATUK: netinst is a lot bigger than mini.iso
10:30<twb>Sorry, wrong nick
10:30<dataangel>what i found most intresting about the install is i expected to get asked about what packages i wanted to install as i had asked for a expert install, and only got a choice of roles for my machine
10:30<Zathras>hi. I am upgrading from something in the middle between etch/lenny/sid to Lenny. I have 2 issues: in Gnome some stuff is gone. Especially the e bottombar where the apps get docked and the screenselecter is normally. Other issue is that phpldapadmin can not be removed even with a dpkg --purge
10:30<Zathras>any ideas please?
10:30-!-kancerman [] has joined #debian
10:30<fxiny>there is freedom in getting 1 2 or 3 cd , so where is the official one ? do you thing 1 as a number is more officila then 2 ?
10:31<\3TATUK>Zathras: did you try `aptitude purge phpldapadmin` ?
10:31<fxiny>i myself run fluxbox and wmii+any tiling windows managers i can grab , i have a gnome and a kde as well
10:31<dataangel>where are the md5 sums on the download page to verify that the iso image downloaded correctly
10:32<twb>Zathras: WHY can't it be removed?
10:32<dataangel>i also watched update manager disappear from my gnome desktop, that was cute .
10:32<dataangel>or i should say from my gnome menus
10:32<dataangel>after using it once
10:32<\3TATUK>fxiny: the recommended install method is netinst. with default netinst options you get gnome!
10:33<Flakk>twb: ok, thanx for the advice and for the address of the disk
10:33-!-ali3n0 [] has quit [Quit: Ex-Chat]
10:33<Zathras>hmm. dpkg (which is at a lower level failed and) ended the process. aptitude purge did fail too but other operations on packages continued
10:33<\3TATUK>i'm looking to migrate to fluxbox+3ddesktop
10:33<Zathras>I will have to wait a while to get the message again
10:34<fxiny>\3TATUK: so what ? gnome is fine . i don't run it but hell i do remember how it was years ago , saying gnome is official sounds like pushing gnome instead of say kde or xcfe

12:05<kop>Plazzmex : Yah. You went away too fast.
12:05<jesperj>kop: yes I would prefer that, but it seems that the nvidia works fine when just one card is physically installed in the system, but when I install the other one I get "NVIDIA: No matching Device section for intance (BusID PCI:7:0:0) found
12:06<jesperj>so that doesn't work.
12:06<kop>jesperj : I'm afraid I just poke X with a stick until it works. (And I stay away from the binary-only stuff because it a'fears me. ;)
12:07<kop>Plazzmex : You've trouble installing?
12:07<jesperj>kop: :) I would be glad if it just worked with vesa or nv heh
12:08<jesperj>but I think I have to use nonfree drivers for dualhead
12:08<Plazzmex>kop: yes.. i have a problem installing debian
12:08<kop>jesperj : Yes. I've a mild-to-meduim interest in getting the Radeon driver to work, but it just seems so much easier to wait until it's in stable.
12:08<kop>Plazzmex : Exactly how far do you get and then what happens?
12:10<Plazzmex>kop: when i'm installing, in the step where it retrieves packages (from the CD and internet), and it says something "Retrieving package 580 of 580" it hangs for some time. after that is shows an error: "installation fail" the install step that failed was software install and configure or something..
12:10*kop is driven to nostalga for the soloko (sp) in Mexico city by Plazzmex's screen name
12:12<kop>Plazzmex : Humm.... You might actually need someone who knows what they're doing. The trick is going to be getting the exact error message. Do you have it? (The installer may keep a log somewhere too....)

12:22<Plazzmex>cd.. but there is a strange thing.. when i'm installing from a cd it also installing from a network even if i choose not to do so..
12:23<kop>Plazzmex : Is it a netinstall cd? That has minimal stuff on the cd itself and gets the rest from the network.
12:23<Plazzmex>no.. not netinstall.. the regular first ISO
12:23-!-linuX|Reneger [] has joined #debian
12:24<kop>Plazzmex : It may be that hdc is your cd, and it's having trouble with it. Either a bad cd or a flakey cd drive. You might try the network install cd, just to use the cd drive a minimal amount.
12:25<kop>Plazzmex : I think no matter what you'll get security updates from the network.
12:25<kop>Plazzmex : I would not expect a cd problem to give you problems configuring a package though....
12:26<kop>Plazzmex : Maybe go to Alt-F2 and get the command line and type dmesg and see if there's some suspicious messages from the kernel about the hardware.
12:26-!-\3TATUK [] has left #debian []
12:27<kop>Plazzmex : (I think it's alt-f2 where the command line lives in the installer.) The log in tty4 is probably written to a file (at least on the ramdisk) somewhere too, so you could look through it for the earliest error message.
12:28<Plazzmex>kop: but can't i install without the network ? it may take hours to download all the stuff for installation.. I only have a 3mbit internet speed..

12:34<kop>Plazzmex : You should be able to. Alt-F7, or Alt-F6 or Alt-F1 or something? Did you try all the combinations? You could also avoid the gui mode, and just use the text mode.

12:48<gizmokaka>can't see checkbox
12:48<gizmokaka>will add the line
12:48<Zathras>Setting up swapd (0.2-10.1) ...
12:48<Zathras>invoke-rc.d: initscript swapd, action "start" failed.
12:48<kop>Plazzmex : It probably means that it's having a problem starting X (the gui). It might need to be told about what driver to use or something.
12:49<Zathras>any ideas on that one please?
12:49<Plazzmex>kop: how to do this ?
12:49<kop>Plazzmex : (You should be asking the whole channel, not just me.)
12:50<kop>Plazzmex : Exactly what has happened?
12:50<gizmokaka>i added the non-free to and of repository in sources.list, i did aptitude update that finished successfully
12:51<gizmokaka>yet it does recognize the sun-java6-jdk package
12:51<Zathras>Plazzmex, see the xorg logfile
12:51<Plazzmex>when he's trying to do 'startx' the console says: Fatal server error: no screens found
12:51<Zathras>probably an issue in /etc/X11/xorg.conf
12:52-!-LL00 [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
12:52<Zathras>you can fix that by hand or reconfigure the xserver
12:52<Zathras>or use xrandr2
12:52<Plazzmex>how to reconfigure the xserver ?
12:52<Zathras>loads of howto's
12:53<variable>does naotun can play radio from web?
12:53<kop>Plazzmex : You can start with "dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg". That will let you reconfigure/initialize the graphic subsystem.
12:53<gizmokaka>kop, did you see what i wrote?
12:54<kop>Plazzmex : If that does not work, we will need the output of /var/log/Xorg.0.log. /msg dpkg pastebin for help on how to paste.
12:54<kop>gizmokaka : So, did you now ask aptitude to install the package (or synaptic?)
12:54-!-juliank [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
12:55<Plazzmex>ok.. will try.. thanks.. i'm going now to try to install the system without the desktop environment..
12:55<gizmokaka>aptitude, i did the required change in sources.list
12:55<gizmokaka>and then aptitude update
12:55<gizmokaka>and then apt-get install sun-java6-jdk
12:56<Plazzmex>kop: what more good to try the minimal install with? the full ISO cd or netinst cd ?
12:56<kop>gizmokaka : And it says?
12:56<kop>Plazzmex : I don't think it matters much. The absolute minimal install does not contain much.
12:56<Plazzmex>ok.. thanks a lot
12:57<gizmokaka>couldn't find package
12:57<kop>Plazzmex : Once you've minimally installed, you can install xserver-xorg, and either/or both the kde or gnome packages to add lots of gui stuff.
12:57<gizmokaka>it feels wrong to add a repository of ubuntu just for that specific install
12:57<kop>gizmokaka : aptitude search java
12:58<gizmokaka>and now?
12:58<kop>gizmokaka : If you're using non-debian repositories you'll break debian, most likely.
12:58<Plazzmex>kop: but it will install them from the internet ?
12:58<gizmokaka>therefor i do not do that
12:58<kop>gizmokaka : You read the result and see if the package you want is available.
12:58<gizmokaka>no it's not there
12:59<kop>Plazzmex : It will install them from whatever apt repostiories are listed in /etc/apt/sources.list. That could be something on the net, or cd, or all of the above.
12:59<kop>gizmokaka : But there's other java stuff, right?
13:00<kop>gizmokaka : Just not java that's new enough?
13:00<gizmokaka>yep of course

13:01<gizmokaka>i have the java 1.4 on the machine built in with the distro
13:01<kop>gizmokaka : Ok, you need another repository. Start with They've instructions. You can also search lenny at and see if it's in there. If so you could use "apt pinning" (which always seemed straightforward but I've not done) to get apt to install the lenny version.

14:41<sworoc>fxiny: i think i'm still correct when i say that debian is on the top 10 on distrowatch, and countless successful distros are based off of debian, not to mention the wide architecture support
14:42<in4dfun>the best thing about Debian is that not just anyone can use it....
14:42<in4dfun>it takes some time and figuring out
14:42-!-NetNuttt [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
14:43<sworoc>you're right, while that seems like a negative, it really requires you to understand your computer and your operating system so that you use it correctly
14:43<in4dfun>and the best thing is that when you think you have figured it out there is more that pops up
14:43<sworoc>(well, as a system administrator, my grandmother uses it on her old desktop for web and email, but she doesn't even know the difference between that and win95)

14:44<fxiny>sworoc: debian is not just for admins . for any user debian is the most rewarding distro : by design
14:44<in4dfun>that is what is so great about can use it on older hardware
14:44<sworoc>to be honest, linux is most definitely ready for the desktop user-space, the people that just use windows now don't do a lot of the things we expect to know how to do in linux
14:45-!-kurumin [~kurumin@] has joined #debian
14:45<sworoc>fxiny: i agree, it's just that most people expect to do complicated sys admin things that they don't even know how to do in other OS's and then complain if they can't do it in debian (usually because they don't know how, not because it's not possible)

14:59<variable>how to check it
14:59<fxiny>cat /etc/debian_version
14:59<shantanu>Hi. I got an issue with lenny weekly image generated on 22nd may
14:59<shantanu>Is this the right place to ask? This is about installation
15:00<fxiny>right , so no skype . how did you instaled it ? it should be in /usr/local
15:00<sworoc>you can try anyway, shantanu
15:00<shantanu>basically it fails to install with error "No kernel modules were found"
15:00<fxiny>good news
15:00<shantanu>I found that it boots with kernel 2.6.22 (uname -a)
15:00<sworoc>what stage were you at when it failed
15:00<variable>no it is in /usr/bin/skype /usr/X11R6/bin/skype /usr/bin/X11/skype /usr/share/skype
15:00<shantanu>and d-i packages are compiled with 2.6.24
15:01<shantanu>just after the cd rom scanning
15:01<sworoc>completely installed and fails on boot/
15:01<fxiny>canìt stay in /usr/bin/skype
15:01<shantanu>it fails just after it scans cd rom for packages
15:01<sworoc>fxiny: why not
15:01<fxiny>sworoc: because must go in /usr/local
15:02<sworoc>fxiny: according to debian rules, or yours?

15:03<fxiny>variable: how did you manage to isstall it ?
15:03<variable>so what is purpose of doubling data?
15:03<variable>dpkg -i .. ;]
15:03*dpkg installs .. ;] into variable's head with a bone saw and a few screws
15:03<fxiny>variable: was it a tarball a bin ? what else ?
15:03<sworoc>it wouldn't be doubling, you can hard link files that are basically two names to the same file
15:04<fxiny>variable: now you now what a anti-dpg-space is :P
15:04<variable>it was I gess skype.deb
15:04<fxiny>skype.deb ?
15:04<sworoc>shantanu: what processor are you using

15:11<shantanu>sworoc: This is about installation only. I get the error just after installer scans the media for packagges
15:11<sworoc>that's what i understood
15:11<shantanu>And in the error it specifically mentions that there might be a mismatch between kernel version and modules
15:12<sworoc>so you're saying that the kernel can't find modules for the installer, not that it can't find modules to install for later
15:12<sworoc>because it's running up to that point, which should mean that the installer kernel and modules should be working correctly
15:12-!-Zathras [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
15:12<sworoc>i would tend to think that you're having problems finding kernel 2.6.24 to install
15:13<shantanu>sworoc: by installer, do u mean d-i (debian-installer) package?
15:13<sworoc>how are you trying to install debian?
15:13-!-errod [] has joined #debian
15:14<sworoc>you're running the install cd/ dvd, right?
15:15<sworoc>that's what i mean by the installer

15:16<jesperj>sworoc: what do you mean with the current driver?
15:17<sworoc>169.12, i ended up getting it from nvidia
15:17<sworoc>shantanu: to me it sounds like you have a bad image, it scans to ensure that the data is correct and all there
15:17-!-sysop4 [] has joined #debian
15:17<jesperj>sworoc: oh. did you have to get something else than the driver from any other source than etch?
15:18<jesperj>sworoc: what method did you use to install it?
15:18<sworoc>jesperj: for now, that's the route i went. you may be able to get it from unstable
15:18<shantanu>i thought so. but I tried quite a lot of things
15:18<shantanu>did md5 checking, burnt on 5 diff media
15:18-!-NinjaMan [] has joined #debian
15:18<shantanu>even burnt on 3 diff friends's PCs
15:18<sworoc>jesperj: but the easiest solution for me was to just get it from nvidia, not quite the debian way, but it works

15:18<shantanu>downloaded on another guy's PC and burnt from there
15:19<sworoc>shantanu: wow, that's odd
15:19<shantanu>also did mediacheck in installer
15:19<shantanu>another thing, sworoc
15:19<jesperj>sworoc: yes but I wondered if you need to update or install anything else to make everything work with the latest drivers
15:19<shantanu>I had installed using the 5th may spin, and that had worked fine
15:19<jesperj>or if it just works with installing the driver alone
15:19<shantanu>but that had d-i 2.6.22 based modules
15:19<jesperj>i mean if it works with nvidia-glx libs and so on
15:19<sworoc>jesperj: if you run the installer, it will let you know if you're missing something that is needed
15:20<shantanu>hence, the drift towards that
15:20<jesperj>ok thanks

15:56<sworoc>what happens if you press enter again
15:56<Plazzmex>skip a line
15:57<sworoc>it shouldn't take that long, it's waiting on something
15:57<Plazzmex>it finished
15:57<sworoc>now if you type:
15:57<sworoc>df -h
15:57<sworoc>does it show it listed?
15:57<variable>what command shows what drivers is on the system?
15:57<Plazzmex>now.. when i'm trying to enter the partition with gnome file manager it says You do not have the permissions necessary to view the contents of "mydisk".
15:57<sworoc>lsmod | grep ntfs
15:58<manu>i have a problem installing debian-40r3-amd64 with a sata2 dvdrom, someone can help me?
15:58<sworoc>manu: sure, what's the problem?
15:58<sworoc>is it recognizing it
15:59<Plazzmex>sworoc: if i type df -h it shows it listed.. yes..
15:59<sworoc>Plazzmex: then you successfully mounted it! however, it sounds like you might only be able to see the data on there as root
15:59<manu>it not recognizing it
15:59<variable>so you have same problem as I do :)
16:00<sworoc>yep :)
16:00<sworoc>manu: does it boot at all?

16:02<sworoc>manu: i might suggest trying testing / lenny, do you have a special reason to want to use stable / etch
16:03<sworoc>manu: since your processor platform is amd64 and your dvd drive is sata, i would think you'll have better luck with drivers using testing

16:12<niteye>im trying to install debian etch, but whateve mirror i choose (and i tried a bunch) it keeps saying "No kernel modules were found. This probably is due to a mismatch between the kernel used by this version of the installer and the nkernel version on the archive"
16:12<niteye>so how do i perform a net-install now
16:12-!-supertramp [] has left #debian []
16:13<dpkg>it has been said that lenny is the codename for the next Debian release, currently testing. To upgrade to lenny, ask me about <etch->lenny>. Lenny is the binoculars.

16:13<simonrvn>etch is the latest release, yes

16:18<shantanu>one question guys. if i keep the repos as "testing" instead of lenny
16:18<niteye>no they are 5 or 6 loppy .img
16:18<shantanu>I guess i'll always remain updated?
16:18<sworoc>Plaxxmex: put gksu before rythmbox command
16:19<dli>mzhang, hi
16:19<shantanu>is that recommended? (keeping the repos as testing instead of lenny)
16:19<sworoc>shantanu: i've been doing it for several years
16:19<manu>sworoc: i will try this first (install dmraid=true)...then i will download that image
16:20<mzhang>dli, you know any way to convert a series of png files to a movie file (.mpg, .mp4 etc)?
16:20<dli>mzhang, try mencoder
16:20<sworoc>shantanu: the only time that i would suggest doing otherwise is right after a release, testing jumps forward in a jerky way.... just point it to lenny for a week or so, then go back to testing

16:33<sworoc>manu: i would suggest getting that cd then, let me get the link again

16:35<sworoc>alright, good :)
16:35<sworoc>it's about 180 MB
16:35<sworoc>should take less time than downloading a whole cd
16:35<sworoc>and then when you get it up and running you'll probably download a few more things

17:11<NinjaMan>valdyn: unfortunately I have a unique set-up where I have 2 connections to 1 router with different ips - and basically avahi is broadcasting and answering itself :D
17:11<variable>hmm when I'm useing debian I sense a lag

17:17<StevenX>valdyn, yea. i'm not too good w/ the linux terminologies
17:17<valdyn>StevenX: log your regular user in once with your gdm | xdm that i suppose you already have
17:18<valdyn>StevenX: then go "Ctrl-Alt-F1", log in a 2nd time as that same user, and run "startx"
17:18<valdyn>StevenX: now, the restriction is where you can _only_ use accelerated3D on the first X that was started

17:19<StevenX>valdyn, i am using the proprietary nvidia driver, but how do i switch back and forth?
17:19<valdyn>StevenX: oh, i forgot: you dont use "startx", that will complain, but try if you want, you use "startx -- :1"
17:20<variable>pfff it is so big lag that it's about 30 s and i still wating for opening google ;/
17:20<valdyn>StevenX: Ctrl-Alt-Fx where 7 <= x <= 12
17:20<StevenX>valdyn, and any number will work? or do i have to know a specific one?
17:21<valdyn>StevenX: any started X picks the first virtual console that is free, thats by default 7, so f7, any addtional X display will be behind that

17:36<weasel>SamWeasley: then purge it.
17:36<weasel>if that's what you want

18:14<qq>NinjaMan: and what is wrong in that ?
18:15<sworoc>NinjaMan: the network won't work very well without a default gateway anyway
18:15<NinjaMan>qq: when you have more than 1 interface, it will change the default route to the one of the interface that was last configured
18:16<Plazzmex>ok.. i have entered alsaconf
18:16<NinjaMan>qq: so if an interface goes down and comes back up - the default route will get updated
18:16<qq>so put a ethx as static
18:16<sworoc>you can use ifconfig to change the gateway
18:16<qq> an*
18:16<NinjaMan>qq: one is static and one is dhcp
18:16<sworoc>so it's possible to write a script that runs after the last interface is up to change the gateway
18:17<dendrite>NinjaMan: man dhclient.conf -- I *think* you can do "supersede routers" or similar.
18:17<NinjaMan>sworoc: ok I was hoping to avoid that -as I was sure it could be done with standard command - but I guess noe

22:10<twb>Ah, information! This is useful.
22:10<twb>Please ontinue.

22:10-!-lucas_amorim [~lucas@] has joined #debian
22:11<peyman>when i install bcm43fwcutter, the wireless device suddenly is deleted from lspci list!
22:11-!-Alam_Debian [] has joined #debian
22:11<peyman>and never comes back!
22:12<peyman>meaning that just before i install bcm43fwcutter, there is a Network Controller for Broadcom wireless in lspci, but the moment i install it, it is not there anymore
22:12<kop>Supaplex : FWIW = foo /bin/bar is another way to avoid propigating assignment, the FWIW variable is assigned a value only in the environment of the command bar.
22:12<peyman>and of course there is no wireless
22:12<lucas_amorim>Hello, Is there any support for ISA network cards in debian stable? how to enable that during installation so I can use a netinst disk?

22:12-!-HazardX64 [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
22:12<peyman>twb: it's ok. thanks anyway :-)
22:13<kop>lucas_amorim : Tons of support. It _should_ be automatically available, unless it's plug-and-pray.
22:13<lucas_amorim>kop: lol
22:13<kop>lucas_amorim : Mostly, even those just work.
22:14<lucas_amorim>kop: I have tryed woody and etch and it did not work
22:14-!-HazardX64 [] has joined #debian
22:14<lucas_amorim>kop: it does not show up in lspci
22:14<kop>lucas_amorim : Sometimes a kernel parameter is required on the kernel boot line because the autodetection of the card will bork other devices.

22:15-!-aredhel [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
22:15<lucas_amorim>kop: In wood it asks to select some modules, so I chose ne2000 or something, then it required me to insert the irq number that I have no idea... :s
22:16<kop>lucas_amorim : You can also look in the kernel docs for isa bus stuff, or even the old hardware howto would mention if a particular card needs something although that's out of date.
22:16<kop>lucas_amorim : Uhhh.... Maybe IRQ 10 would be standard.
22:16<kop>lucas_amorim : It won't be in lspci because it's not on the pci bus. You want /proc/interrupts
22:16<lucas_amorim>kop: really? how can I setup that after installed?
22:17<kop>lucas_amorim :Once you're running the installer alt-f2 (iirc) will get you a console and you can "less /proc/interrupts" to see the irq of the card.
22:17<lucas_amorim>i mean, how can i setup this network card after the system installation? how can I load the module?
22:18<kop>lucas_amorim : Also, that sort of stuff _used_ to show in the dmesg, but linux has gotten a lot less chatty.

22:19-!-Alam_Debian [] has joined #debian
22:19<kop>lucas_amorim : If you know what card you have, which will be on the card pc board, or google a chip number, then you can look in the linux Documentation dir for info on the card's support and that will tell you how to get it running. /proc/* will tell you irq and io port numbers if you dont' know and can't find from jumpers and docs on the web.
22:20<kop>lucas_amorim : The us government fcc registration id database is another good resource for finding exactly what you've got. That's always printed on the card.
22:20<lucas_amorim>kop: Since I could not configure the network during installation I installed only the base system using the CD. Then how can i load that module and make the card work?

22:21-!-Alam_Debian [] has joined #debian
22:21<kop>lucas_amorim : I'd still look for the kernel command line parameter, but that's because I know how to edit grub's menu.lst or lilio's conf better than I know kernel-module-fu.
22:22<kop>lucas_amorim : No. I found it really fast once, maybe
22:22<lucas_amorim>ok, gonna try
22:22-!-Alam_Debian [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
22:22<lucas_amorim>ok, thats it
22:23<kop>lucas_amorim : And the kernel docs are clear. They'll say how to load the module with lsmod too, but I forget the details of controlling that via /etc/ because it changed out from under me and now magically works-for-me.
22:23<lucas_amorim>kop: ok, thank you very much!

22:24<lucas_amorim>I suppose its ne2000, but I don't really know it... I am gonna look for the fcc as you suggested

23:23<twb>Gekz_: you fsck often enough for it to MATTER how fast fsck is?
