00:01<rav>on another topic, i'm trying to enable my atheros wifi card. in most of the tutorials i find on the web, it says to run 'make menuconfig'. where do I run this?
00:01<dpkg>madwifi is a driver for wireless devices with an Atheros chipset. More information at To install madwifi drivers built against Debian stock kernels, ask me about <madwifi-install>. No USB devices are supported. NOT for AR5007UG (aka AR2624/AR5524) chipsets, ask me about <zd1211rw> instead., #madwifi @ No AR5008 support until 0.9.5.
00:02<dpkg>[madwifi-install] ask me about <contrib> and <non-free sources>, then as root: "apt-get update && apt-get install madwifi-tools module-assistant && m-a prepare && m-a a-i madwifi && modprobe ath_pci". You should now have madwifi installed. Note: Atheros = ath0, NOT eth0.

00:06<rav>the kernel that was installed doesn't come with madwifi, it has ath5k instead. should I go back to madwifi?

00:34<azulesmar>nevyn..can you clarify? i apt-cache search linux-image...and there's amd64, and em64t
00:34<azulesmar>no generic, no i386...
00:34<nevyn>what version of debian did you install?
00:34<azulesmar>which should be stable, yeah?
00:34-!-ntbnnt [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:34<nevyn>for what archetecture?
00:35<azulesmar>well it's an i386 machine
00:35<azulesmar>but it appears to have autodetected amd64, somehow. thats what's in /boot
00:35<azulesmar>(used win32 installer)

00:40<azulesmar>could there be some filter on my apt search results
00:41-!-freealan [] has joined #debian
00:43<phillipsjk>azulesmar, they dropped thi i386 kernel image, try i486
00:44<azulesmar>still...i ONLY see em64t and amd64 options on this pc
00:44<azulesmar>searching at home yields a wide variety
00:44<azulesmar>including i486
00:44<azulesmar>they have the same sources.list file

00:52<dataangel>I am a new user to debian, i was wondering if i changed my respository to testing would i get the xfce window manager with the transpartent windows ????? its not in my current xcfe build
00:53<dataangel>i alos want to reinstall xcfe as some of the top sections of myw idnows i, when using wine, qemu etc are garbled and i think something strange is corrupted becuase it the graphics look a little strange in different ways every time these windows show up , unless of course its a x winoes issue

00:56<Pepper>azulesmar: try: dpkg --print-architecture
00:57<phillipsjk>dataangel, for your first question, you may want to try a "compiz" window decorator
00:57<azulesmar>pepper: amd64
00:57<azulesmar>pepper: i can't apt-get install base-config
00:57<w00p>Can someone help me? I have a HP Compaq laptop, with Conexant 5051 Audio chipset. The sound is fine, but when i plug in the headphones, the speakers are not mutted. Any idea?
00:57<azulesmar>hahahhaa FUBARed
00:58-!-freealan [] has joined #debian
00:58*phillipsjk was wondering how to get the current arch
00:58<Pepper>azulesmar: so you installed the amd64 version of debian. (no i386 images available)
00:58<dataangel>right one of those compositing manager , there is one built in within xcfe, but not in the debian build with etch
00:58-!-superjet_busy [~superjet@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:59<Pepper>azulesmar: if you realy need i386 you can reinstall with an i386 disk-set
00:59<dataangel>so i was wondering if i went from stable to testing for my sources would i get the xcfe with the compositng window manager, i forgot what it was called, xfwm on something!
00:59<twb>dataangel: xfwm4 is a compositing manager, I believe.
00:59<azulesmar>pepper: thanks. no idea how this happened, but i'll reinst.
00:59<twb>dataangel: however, the version in Etch is probably too old.
00:59-!-azulesmar [] has quit [Quit: ircII EPIC4-2.6 -- Are we there yet?]
01:00<Pepper>azulesmar: maybe your cpu is an 64bit one. so the installer choose to use amd64 which supports 64bit.
01:00-!-tenzind [] has joined #debian
01:00<phillipsjk>I have not tried it, but It is my understanig that "compiz" is the window manager you refer to, and that "compiz-gtk" may work with your existing WM. I could be wrong. ( apt-cache search compiz)
01:01<dataangel>i fdont need compiz, i have aghetto 1ghz petium without a aagp slot and i know from my ubuntu (soory about that) dist that xfwm works reasonably well on it!
01:02<dataangel>but i sick of ubuntu. the latest stable release sux.
01:02<Pepper>dataange1: Be warned, testing is not stable:
01:02-!-freealan [] has quit []
01:02<phillipsjk>yes you need 3D accelaration for compiz :)
01:02<twb>dataangel: compiz is just *one* compositing manager.
01:03<dataangel>i n fact i have given up on ubuntu after a nightmare install of kqemu that never got rsloved, i just gave up after hours of banging on the bloody keyboard, it works great in debian however ;)
01:03<twb>xfwm4 and kwin also support basic compositing

01:05<dataangel>sorry about the typing i am sshing and its a little slow for some strange reason!
01:05*phillipsjk has rewired a DELL Power supply to power a standard ATX machine
01:06<dataangel>maybe you will have "dude i got a dead dell too" experience, its a new feature :)
01:06<phillipsjk>THere is one (redundant) pin unconnected IIRC)
01:06<dataangel>its designed to keep you on a steady upgrade path in case you want to run windoze

01:49<grub>hey could anyone give a list of popular light weight window managers
01:50-!-morfng [] has joined #debian
01:50<grub>anyone will do
01:50-!-morfng [] has left #debian []
01:51<Pepper>grub: all window managers can be found with: apt-cache search x-window-manager
01:51<grub>i iam on windows right now
01:52<Supaplex>grub: I like openbox3
01:52<Supaplex>grub: will work in place of apt-cache (for popular things)
01:53<grub>i need a list can you paste all that you know (not gnome and kde)
01:53<grub>pepper, i need te popular ones
01:53<twb>Anybody wanna tell me that apt-zip and apt-walkabout are evil and deprecated and shit, and that I should use some other, better thing?
01:54-!-NinjaMan [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
01:54<Pepper>grub: compare with:
01:55<twb>Better to use, which IIRC includes popcon data and allows you to filter them easily
01:55<grub>i need just three four cannt google soo many
01:55-!-duplex [] has joined #debian
01:56<Pepper>grub: all your homework belongs to you.
01:56<grub>hahaha :-) please can you just tell me the ones you like
01:57-!-visik7 [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
01:57<grub>openbox looks very nice
01:58-!-NinjaMan [] has joined #debian
01:58<twb>grub: what do you want it for?
01:58<grub>a 256mb ram machine
01:59<twb>grub: do you like manually placing windows, or tiling them? Do you want a taskbar, a system tray, window decorations? Do you want gradients on the decorations, or just a solid colour? Do you need a menu built in or are you going to use 9menu?
02:00<grub>i need everything all of them tiling taskbar, a system tray window decorations gradients on the decorations menu built in
02:01<twb>Then I guess you want dwm.
02:01<twb>Actually, that doesn't do decorations.
02:01<twb>I don't think you can have a tiling WM that also has a taskbar and decorations.
02:01<jm_>or icewm-lite
02:02<twb>icewm-lite isn't a tiling window manager.
02:02<twb>Although it has bindings for "tile vertically" and "tile horizontally"
02:02<jm_>yes, it's way more flexible
02:02<twb>jm_: FSVO flexible = makes the end user manage windows :P
02:03<grub>i need names will an older version of gnome do??
02:03<twb>grub: what names?
02:03-!-the-me [] has joined #debian
02:03<grub>iam migrating from windows so i need something like that
02:03<twb>grub: icewm is the most Windows-like of all Debian WMs
02:04<twb>Assuming by Windows you mean Windows 98 through XP; it does not look or feel much like Vista, I guess
02:04<Pepper>vista on 256MB ;-)
02:04<grub>icewm dosent seem to have good graphics
02:04<twb>XPDE is actually even closer to Windows in some ways, but it's written in Pascal, is completely unmaintained, and full of evil horrible bugs.
02:05<twb>grub: try Start > Themes
02:05<grub>in what
02:05<twb>In IceWM
02:05<grub>ohh it looks beautiful

02:06-!-vikki_r [~foo@] has joined #debian
02:06*twb sighs
02:06<sander>jm_, thanks. it works.. only thing is that I want the meny and stuff in the right screen instead of the left.
02:06-!-tehk [] has joined #debian
02:06<grub>so if i install icewm ill have all themes in my dektop??
02:07<twb>grub: all what themes?
02:07<grub>themes of icewm
02:07<grub>like gertpalstic
02:08<twb>grub: I think there are a bunch in a package called "icewm-themes" or similar, but apart from about 80 themes most of them have to be downloaded by hand from
02:08<sander>Anyone know how to switch which screen to have menu's in with xrandr xserver-xorg config?
02:08-!-che_Loverz [~frame09@] has joined #debian
02:09<grub>ok so if there a readymade debian iso for icewm??
02:09-!-crib [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
02:10<grub>will icewm work alone in x or will it require a dektop environment
02:11<dataangel>right now , my xcfe based dist is only using about 180 megs of ram. try that
02:11<grub>sorry byt i need more ram
02:12-!-Pepper [] has quit [Quit: Verlassend]
02:12<grub>can ihev both like in one i have xfce and in one i have icewm
02:12<twb>sander: what menus?
02:13<twb>grub: icewm does not require a DE
02:13<grub>ok so only x is required
02:13-!-bofur [] has joined #debian
02:13<twb>grub: no, you will also require a kernel, a userland, /proc, libxpm, and a bunch of other things.
02:14<sander>twb, application menu.. panels and stuff like that.
02:14<twb>sander: what provides these?
02:15<sander>What do you mean?
02:15<twb>sander: is it provided by gnome-panel, 9menu, ion, fluxbox, a GTK application... or what?
02:15<sander>Is it possible to just move panels to another screen?
02:15<grub>iam completely new i need somthin ready to install and use
02:15-!-simonrvn [] has joined #debian
02:15<sander>I'm using gnome
02:16<grub>well sander you have ram 256mb + i dont
02:17<grub>is there anyready made distro with icewm??
02:17<twb>grub: no.
02:17<twb>sander: OK, I think you just middle-click drag to move gnome panels
02:17<grub>then what will i do??
02:17<sander>twb, dosnt work.. it just pops back again..
02:17-!-dataangel [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
02:18<sander>twb, And I also want my desktop on the same screen
02:18<twb>sander: it should "click" when it gets close to the wall of the other screen
02:18<sander>twb.. the same screen as the panels.
02:18<grub>can i use gnome as a DE and icewm as a window manager??
02:18-!-alanhaggai [~alanhagga@] has joined #debian
02:18<twb>grub: yes.
02:18<grub>now that wont be resource hungry??
02:18-!-crib [] has joined #debian
02:18<twb>It will be resource hungry, because GNOME always is.
02:18<sander>twb.. I can drag it to the other screen.. but when I release the mouse button... it just pops back to the other screen again..
02:19<twb>sander: I can't help any more. I suggest you discuss it with the GNOME people
02:19<sander>twb, in xinerama I just told screen0 to be left of screen1 instead of screen 1 to be left of screen0
02:19<sander>twb, ok.. which channel should I go to then?
02:20-!-firewallcz [] has joined #debian
02:20<twb>sander: I think they have their own IRC server
02:20<grub>so first iget the debain-gnome distro then i uninstall gnomewm and install icewm
02:20<twb>sander: off the record, you are basically fucked because GNOME hate their users.
02:20<sander>twb, lol.. okay :-p
02:20<grub>so what about kde + icewm??
02:21<twb>grub: what about it?

02:22-!-alanhaggai [~alanhagga@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
02:22<sander>Hmz. i'll ask someone else.
02:22<twb>grub: instead of asking me, why don't you just TRY these things?
02:22<twb>sander: define "order"
02:22<grub>i have to downlaod a distro first
02:22<twb>sander: if you mean which one is :0.0 and which is :0.1, then I think you have to turn them both off, then each on one at a time
02:23<twb>grub: this channel is only for the Debian distribution. If you are not using Debian, go elsewhere.
02:23<grub>iam using debian but only with cli on a balde server
02:23<grub>i need it for my laptop too
02:23<twb>grub: so do something like "apt-get install xfce4 xorg"
02:24<grub>hey hey

02:24<simonrvn>some are just trying.
02:25<simonrvn>...and make you want to slap them silly.
02:25<twb>I'm conflicted
02:25<twb>At the same time, I want to smack him, but also I don't want him making Ubuntu popular
02:25<sander>twb, I have a desktop with two screens beside eachother.. where I can move the mouse from one to the other.. but when I move the mouse to the left on the left screen.. I get into the right screen..
02:25<twb>Because then they lure away the devs

02:27<twb><file nl | grep ': foo' | cut -d: -f 1 | while read n; do sed -n '$n p' file; done
02:28<twb>simonrvn: I guess I'm just annoyed because they seem to actually be doing some development work now -- meaning that there are people developing for them that aren't developing for us
02:28<twb>e.g. openssh-blacklist
02:28<simonrvn>they've been doing that for a while
02:29<duplex>okay. i gonna try that twb
02:29<twb>duplex: not that's O(nⁿ) time or something
02:29<twb>n², rather
02:30<twb>Fuck, I don't know
02:30<twb>Something bad
02:30<simonrvn>i see it this way, they're doing what they said they'd do, except partly (at least) passively.

02:31<sander>Anyone good at xrandr xserver-org configs? how do I get Option "RightOf" "dvi0" to work?.. I only get LeftOf to work
02:31<simonrvn>i.e., the flow is more or less even both ways.
02:31<che_Loverz>what is your name
02:31<twb>simonrvn: you think so?
02:31<simonrvn>sander: ask in one chan at a time please.
02:31<duplex>but i thought i could be just with awk
02:31<duplex>*be possible
02:31<sander>simonrvn, okay. sorry.
02:32<phillipsjk>If I was going to do develpment work, I thimnk I would start with damnsmalllinux because It does al lot of things I think OSs should. (I would start by improving the documentation)
02:34<simonrvn>twb: iow, yes i do ;)
02:34<jm_>duplex: I suggest you to read some awk docs first -- one can easily do $1 ~ /zeus/ && $6 ~ /POST/ and so on

06:40<avtobiff>mariusp, use the nvidia driver (proprietary)
06:41<mariusp>I am. Installed it from sid
06:41<avtobiff>mariusp, have you configured xorg to use aiglx glx dri etc? (glxinfo | grep dri should say yes)
06:42<mariusp>avtobiff, it seems that I have not. I didnt know this was required?
06:42<mariusp>avtobiff, could you point me to some documentation or some explanations?
06:42<avtobiff>mariusp, it is not. but if you dont you wont use hardware acceleration and then it becomes slow.
06:42<jm_>it's done by default if you have properly installed nvidia driver
06:42<jm_>and told X to use it

07:39<jm_>nils_FR13: kernel is loaded by boot loader, maybe your system has problems reading the CD - you could just install with whichever CD works for you and the put new kernel on it to get networking going
07:40<gsimmons>nils_FR13: Try using the 0215 (most recent) or 1013 kmuto revisions. Failing that, force usage of the generic IDE driver.

07:43<nils_FR13>I've pluged an old ethernet card, that works with 2.6.18, so I think I'll setup Debian like this, and upgrade to 2.6.2x when running good,
07:43<nils_FR13>is that a good idea ?
07:43<jm_>newer kernels use libata based drivers for IDE, that's probably causing it

12:23<JennyC_>hi, I'm having a dependencies problem. I tried upgrading the Perl-Base library, and dependecies became broken. when I try to fix them it tells me I can't because perl-base is too new a version
12:23<JennyC_>any way to correct this?

12:24<JennyC_>it won't let me uninstall the newer perl-base without fixing dependencies, so I'm stuck in a loop

12:36<nick01>cahoot, and then it would allow me to configure static IP and such or it only works with dhcp ?

14:09<Supaplex>\3TATUK: no idea. all I know is dig +trace can accomplish a similar goal

14:18<Supaplex>etch covers months and months of releases
14:18<bcochofel>Supaplex: if I have the security updates will it do?
14:18<dpkg>Due to a weakness in a random number generator, keys generated after 2006-09-17 (using openssl 0.9.8c-1 and later) need to be regenerated with a newer openssl (at least 0.9.8c-4etch3). See Updated openssh packages that check for weak keys are also now available. Ask me about <ssl update><dsa1576><ssh-vulnkey><dsa1571 jokes>

14:19-!-Politics [] has joined #debian
14:19<bcochofel>!ssl update
14:19<dpkg>DSA1571 and DSA1576 are addressed in packages for openssl (0.9.8c-4etch3), libssl (0.9.8c-4etch3), openssh-server (1:4.3p2-9etch1), openssh-client (1:4.3p2-9etch1), openssh-blacklist (0.1.1). To install them, "aptitude update && aptitude dist-upgrade" (dist-upgrade required because new packages are being installed). Ask me about <ssh-vulnkey> <dsa1571><dsa1576>. Also ask me about <fail2ban> to make script kiddies go away.
14:20<dpkg>from memory, ssh-vulnkey is a tool to identify known weak ssh keys (ask me about <dsa1571><dsa1576>). It is found in the openssh-client package version 4.3p2-9etch1 or later; you will need to "aptitude update && aptitude dist-upgrade" to also install the new openssh-blacklist package. See for usage.

14:28<curious101>hi, i can't seem to find this info yet. How many years does a Debian system support updates?
14:28<fxiny>353G ? 1098G ? wt4x !
14:28<sepski>curious101, normaly 1 year after a new version is released
14:29<Supaplex>fxiny: it's a spoof :)
14:29<curious101>sepski, does that mean that after 1 year, the previous version will cease to auto update?
14:29<fxiny>Supaplex: hahahah : super BOFH ;)
14:29<sepski>curious101, it will cease to get security updates.
14:30<curious101>ah, only security updates?
14:30<curious101>what about the repositories?
14:30<sepski>curious101, well when its released it wont get any other kind of updates then security updates
14:30<curious101>i see.
14:31<curious101>i'm trying to verify a post from our forum. can you validate if this is true? :
14:31<sepski>curious101, when a debian version is released it's STABLE. (with capital letters and a period)
14:31<curious101>On the update support, you say CentOS 7yrs Ubuntu - 5yrs... Debian - until the distro dies (as one version number is finished with it will auto move you up to the next version, as with the bump up the repositories are re-shifted & so support for an installation is infinate.
14:32<fxiny>yahhh stable : no cowboy releases , like twb said
14:32<fxiny>stable means we can have as many beer we want :P
14:32-!-visik7 [] has joined #debian
14:33<curious101>can you validate it, sepski?
14:33<sepski>curious101, it depends on how you configure your sources.list. but it you choose to track stable. you get security upgrades until the new version hits and you upgrade everything to the new stable
14:33<sepski>then you get security upgrades until next version again
14:33<curious101>ah, I see. thanks
14:33<sepski>but it depends now you configure it.
14:33-!-dongle [] has quit [Quit: core dumped.]
14:33<Supaplex>there's a year of overlap

14:34<fxiny>Supaplex: overlap ? did i tell you i invented the "being one loop ahead" ? or behind ? ;)
14:34<sepski>so if you track etch now you wont autoupgrade to lenny when it's released
14:34<curious101>what about in the case of upgrading from sarge to etch?

14:37<dpkg>[potato] Debian 2.2, released August 14th, 2000, and is no longer supported. Ask me about "potato->woody" for upgrade information. something that grows underground, or you can still get an older release of this at

14:38<fxiny>i failed with redatta 7.0
14:38<curious101>sepski, not yet.
14:38<susanne-->So my USB subsystem is failing to initialize. It isn't a particular device -- it's both the high-speed and low-speed chipsets. dmesg at Google points to nothing in particular that make any sense to me. This is stock Lenny. Where do I go from here?
14:39<sepski>ubuntu should in theory be able to do those kinds of upgrades becouse it's roots are in debian. but experience have shown that depending on how agressive you are on uncommenting sources your upgrades may be painful. ofcourse when you enable unsupported sources you can't expect the world. with a stock ubuntu i think you are mostly fine. but i have no experience only internet posts to judge from
14:39<fxiny>upgrading fronm sarge to etch was not so easy
14:39-!-GoNoGo [] has joined #debian
14:40<sepski>curious101, well when you try that youll learn the difference :) but my rule of thumb (from back when i still had rpm based machines) was that i could upgrade 6 debian machines in the time it took me to do 1 RH

14:43<sepski>package nubers are huge aproximations since dont have them in my head
14:44<sepski>i dont know what centos supports but afaik it's a source rebuild of rhes so it's for those was must run rhes for some reason but wont pay the $
14:44<Supaplex>woah. staples is making an offer to aquire corporate express? cool
14:44<curious101>i understand. ubuntu has 5 years support, centos has 7, debian has ?

14:47<fxiny>too long 5 and 7 , i smell some kind of rat , hard to belive
14:47<curious101>so this could be a wrong statement with regard to support, Debian - until the distro dies ?
14:47<Supaplex>fxiny: let's keep supporting potato. NOT. :P hahaha.
14:48<sepski>curious101, stable is supported until the distro and project is dead that is true
14:48<fxiny>Supaplex: hahahah :)))
14:48<sepski>but what is in stable changes when a version is released
14:48<curious101>ah, I see.
14:48<sepski>but etch will cease support 1 year after lenny is released since then lenny is stable :)
14:48<curious101>lenny will be released next year?
14:48<Supaplex>real soon now
14:49<sepski>lenny will be released when it's ready

14:50<curious101>i see.

I have been googeling but i haven't really found an awnser on this problem. For windows i know i can slipstream such drivers, but i am not sure what approche to take with Debian

15:51<SaintK>Hi susanne--, unfortunatly it did not work. When i used 'install26' it gives an error that the kernel could not be found. 'install 26' did seem to work thought, i saw it loading up an 2.6 kernel, but unfortunatly it is still not detecting the SATA chipset, and thus it doesn't see my HDD
15:52<SaintK>Do you happen to have any more suggestions?
15:52<fxiny>new hardware ? check kmuto
15:52<dpkg>For etch (or sarge) with up-to-date kernels, see
15:52<susanne-->saintk, install26 may be the wrong switch. use the function keys (f3? f4) to find exactly what they are
15:53<Gathond>SaintK: does you bios have the ability to emulate IDE drives instead of using AHCI? then that might allow you to complete the installer
15:53<SaintK>susanne-- , i think install 26 was the correct one, as i saw it loading a 2.6 kernel :)
15:53<Gathond>SaintK: using the generic.ide option (look somewhere like F3/F4 in the kernel boot menu) might also help
15:53<SaintK>Gathond: Yes, my BIOS is configured as IDE. I have tried AHCI aswell, but that doesn't function either
15:54<susanne-->no, with a space is never correct.

16:08<SaintK>Hi, there is no such thing as install26 in the help files on the CD.

18:24<azeem>VTommy: why do you run a server if you don't know how to run it?
18:24<dpkg>If you have a question, just ask! For example: "I have a problem with ___; I'm running Debian version ___. when I try to do ___ I get the following output ___. I expected it to do ___." Don't ask if you can ask, or if anyone uses it, or pick one person to ask (ask the whole channel!). We're all volunteers; make it easy for us to help you. If you don't get an answer, ask later or ask
18:25<dpkg>rumour has it, samba is a Unix implementation of Windows file and print sharing (the SMB protocol), a good tutorial in English can be found at , or, or read O'Reilly's book online (, or #samba on, or <samba etch5>

22:51<twb>I have a site that is disconnected from the internet (for security reasons). I want to set up a partial Debian mirror (one arch, one release) there, to simplify installing and upgrading packages. Thus, I will need to physically ship a hard disk or USB key containing the weekly/monthly deltas to the mirror. What tools exist to facilitate this?
22:52<abrotman>apt-zip ? apt-cdrom
22:52<dpkg>debian repository is, like, a set of Debian packages organized into a predefined structure for fetching with apt-get. A howto is available at Ask me about <list repositories>.
22:52<abrotman>twb: or get the ISOs
22:52<twb>abrotman: AFAICT apt-zip is only useful for installing packages, not for maintaining a full mirror.
22:52<twb>abrotman: the security archive creates ISOs?
22:52<abrotman>you said partial!
22:53<twb>abrotman: yes, partial as in I want i386, but not MIPS
22:53<abrotman>!info apt-move etch
22:53<dendrite>twb: All 18 gazillion packages?
22:53<abrotman>maybe ?
22:53<twb>dendrite: all 30000 or so, yes.
22:53<dpkg>apt-move: (Maintain Debian packages in a package pool), section admin, is optional. Version: 4.2.26-1 (etch), Packaged size: 48 kB, Installed size: 216 kB
22:54<twb>For a stable release plus security, the diffs are unlikely to be more than a couple of GiB per month, and the initial mirroring can be done before the server is shipped to the offline facility.
22:54<twb>abrotman: looking...
22:55-!-ambroski_ [] has joined #debian
22:55-!-ambroski [] has joined #debian
22:55<twb>abrotman: that looks useful
22:56<twb>abrotman: what I expect to do is create a local mirror of etch/i386 (on a site that has internet), then work out which packages need have changed in the last month and put them on a USB key, ship that to the offline facility and have their staff add those packages to THEIR repository.

22:59<Bartman007>twb: incremental rsync of an apt-mirror pool?
23:00<twb>Bartman007: yeah, something like that.
23:00<twb>Bartman007: but how do you do an rsync over sneakernet?
23:01<Bartman007>rsync to the removable medium, use your sneakers to transport it.
23:01-!-swo [] has joined #debian
23:01<twb>Bartman007: I don't want to ship the full mirror to and from the facility
23:02<twb>Basically because then I'd have to use a HDD instead of a key, which is heavier
23:02<kop>twb: It seems to me that in order to send a diff you're going to have to keep a complete copy of whatever you're partially mirroring, and use that to do the diff. Rather than ship some sort of binary diff why don't you just ship the entire partial mirror and rsync at the remote end?
23:02<kop>twb: Just how much won't fit on a USB key these days?
23:03<twb>I'm assuming a mirror of etch/i386 is going to be around 10-20 GiB
23:03<twb>If it's only gonna be 4-8GiB, then I could just ship the whole thing on a USB key
23:03-!-devil_ [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
23:04-!-devil_ [] has joined #debian
23:04<twb>I guess I can work out those numbers once I've built my local mirror at the online facility. So apt-mirror is definitely the right tool for that?
23:05<kop>twb: FYI, which is not much, I've a mirror of i386, amd64 and source, all releases and it clocks in at about 120GB.
23:05<twb>kop: ouch, that's even more than I thought
23:05<Bartman007>twb: have you looked at the --compare-dest option of rsync? that's what I was thinking of.
23:05<twb>Bartman007: no, looking...
23:06-!-NinjaMan [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
23:06<Bartman007>I think you'll find that does exactly what you need.
23:06<dendrite>twb: Well, you only need i386, and you may not need all historical releases.

23:06-!-Mortal [] has joined #debian
23:07<twb>dendrite: correct, I definitely only need stable/i386
23:07<twb>I almost certainly don't need sources either.
23:08<kop>I use anonftpsync, because that's what's recommended at the debian mirror instructions. However, it is not packaged, which means it's more difficult to keep up to date.
23:08<dendrite>twb: So your size estimate may not be far off.

23:09<dendrite>kop: Yeah, I can see that.
23:09<kop>twb: There's also debmirror.
23:10-!-dendrite [] has quit [Quit: Zz]
23:10<kop>twb: The other choice would be something fancy with jigdo. It's able to chunk stuff and apply binary changes.
23:11<Bartman007>kop: I still think rsync's --compare-dest option is exactly what he wants
23:11<twb>kop: ooh.
23:11<kop>Bartman007 : Yup, but it's nice having it built-into an existing tool so you don't have to roll your own rsync.
23:12<twb>Bartman007: I don't really understand how that would be used.
23:14<Bartman007>twb: `rsync -a --compare-dest=bar/ foo/ baz/' will copy from foo to baz, unless the file is already in bar
23:15-!-ambroski [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
23:15<kop>twb: I'd say a careful application of rdiff-backup would let you do offline incremental mirroring.

23:20<twb>kop: rdiff looks very nice -- all I'd do then is ship the "extra reverse diffs are stored in a special subdirectory of that target"
23:20<kop>twb: right.
23:20-!-ross [] has left #debian []
23:20<Laeborg>but if i just type ssh iphere in the console line there just happen nothing
23:21<kop>twb: But you still need to be able to ship a complete copy, no matter what you use. Because someday it'll get out of sync somehow and you need a way to recover.
23:21<twb>kop: however, the diffs would need to be forward diffs, not reverse diffs
23:21<Laeborg>but if i run the command in the terminal, it works
23:21<twb>kop: I'm happy to ship a full mirror via HDD in emergencies, but I don't want to be doing that every month

23:31<twb>But I really don't enjoy transferring packages over the modem line, since it takes hours for a couple of MB
23:31<twb>Also, my end of the modem connection isn't allowed to be connected to the internet or anything, either
23:32<kop>Laeborg : The applets in the "taskbars" of the various window managers allow you to add "shortcuts" like you're talking about. In gnome you can probably drag such a thing into a menu. You can surely add it to a drawer.
23:32<kop>twb: I understand. But a net connection is just so much handier than plain shell. Even when slow.
23:33<twb>kop: yes, I have pppd on that line
23:33<kop>Laeborg : Otherwise, you can write a very, very simple script and whatever window manager must have a way to add it to a menu. But that depends on the window manager.
23:34<Laeborg>i use KDE and yes it is the applet in the kicker/taskbar/call it what ever you want, I use, but when i try to add a bookmark a write ssh "ip goes here" under location, theres not happens anything when i click on the link

23:34<kop>Laeborg : You probably want to be looking at your window manager's docs, or telling us more about what you use.
23:34<kop>Laeborg : There's probably a checkbox somewhere that says "run this in a terminal window".
23:35<kop>twb: Bootable usb stick would be nice because the remote end would be completely automated. But if you've got other manual work anyhow then it's probably not worth setting up.

23:35<Laeborg>no there isn't kop
23:35<twb>kop: I don't really want to take their server down to boot it off a USB key, either
23:36<twb>kop: I might as well just put the logic on their server
23:36<kop>twb : That's a good reason.
23:36<twb>If I was gonna be really wanky, I'd set up hal scripts to detect that particular key and fully automate it
23:36<twb>But that's cut into my pay :-)
23:37<kop>twb : You could do something with an automount triggered script that checks the usb stick's uuid, but that'd be a bit stupid.

23:40<kop>Laeborg : I don't know enough kde (and don't really want to know) to help.
23:42<kop>Laeborg : Ah. I found it.
23:43<kop>Laeborg : You do "add applet" in the taskbar, then "non-kde application launcher". Then configure that, putting in the ssh command and clicking the "run in terminal" checkbox.
23:43<kop>Laeborg : But I find kde lame and expect that you might not be able to take that applet and put it in a menu or on the desktop, although I may well be wrong.

23:46<andreyv>i run 2 xeon 64x2 processors and gonna compile kernel, so i should run make-kpkg --arch=??? --subarch=x86_64 --initrd --revision=<> kernel_image modules_image. and what should i write in --arch=??? option?
23:47<qq>ia64 ?
23:47<andreyv>i'll try now :)
23:47<twb>x86_64 isn't a subarch
23:49<andreyv>so what is subarch?
23:49<qq>andreyv: what you are running on that machine ?
23:49<twb>For example, an arch might be POWER/PowerPC and the subarch might be POWER4 or POWER5
23:50<twb>If you don't know these things, you probably shouldn't be rolling your own kernel
23:50<andreyv><qq> only base system yet
23:50-!-yvasilev [~yvasilev@] has quit [Quit: Leaving.]
23:50<qq>which kernel ?
23:50<twb>There's really not much point rolling your own kernel, IMO
23:51<qq>which arch kernel ?
23:51<qq>amd64 ?
23:51<andreyv>twb> nono, i already reconfigured it to match my hardware, just never compiled on 64x processors
23:52<andreyv><qq> yes, arch amd64 - from netinst
23:52<twb>andreyv: you're silly
23:53-!-muammar [muammar@] has quit [Quit: imagine a big red swirl here..!]
23:54<andreyv><twb> why??? because i didn't do it and there is no examples in man page for options --arch and subarch??
23:54<kop>twb: So, seems to me that with rdiff-backup you'd do "--restore-as-of now" to roll forward. But I don't see anything about whether that would work so it'd be something that'd have to be tested.

23:56<kop>andreyv : You want to read //usr/share/doc/kernel-package/README.gz for details. You don't need to use --arch to build for the arch of the machine you're running on.
23:57<andreyv><kop> ok, now'll read
23:57<kop>andreyv : But twb is right, you need a reason to build a kernel.

23:58<andreyv><kop> the reason is to make it smaller, to remove dirvers i don't need on this machine
