00:16<marupa>Hi, I'm fairly new to linux, but was wondering if there was a way to use two internet connections at once, I have two ISPs, one Fiber, one DSL, but when the Fiber connects the DSL won't connect, any ideas?
00:18-!-alanhaggai [~alanhagga@] has quit []
00:19<blarson>marupa: sure, but it can get complicated. The ip command can do lots of tricks.
00:19<marupa>What I want is sort of 'two independent ISPs', one fast, one slow. I do some hosting but I don't want the web hosting to be on the fast one, only the game hosting.
00:22<blarson>marupa: For hosting with static IPs, this should be fairly straitforward. You need to tell it to route the outgoing packets based on the interface the connection came in on though.
00:24<marupa>What's wierd is that say I SSH in on eth0, and then enable eth1. Eth0 suddenly stops responding, and I have to ssh in on eth1.
00:25-!-superjet_busy [~superjet@] has quit [Quit: 暂离!]
00:26<blarson>marupa: you need some non-default routing tricks. rtfm on the ip command.
00:27<marupa>wait, what? Not even sure which command you're referring to.
00:28<blarson>marupa: the name of the command is ip
00:29<blarson>it does a superset of ifconfig and route

01:45<MotoHoss>soo how can one knock grub2 off a harddrive? I searched google.. I can't get the system to boot. and the install cd's I have all fail when attempting lilo or grub nstalls...
01:46-!-OdyX [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
01:47<jm_>what's the error?
01:48<MotoHoss>grub/2 comes up in 'rescue mode'
01:48<MotoHoss>no modules loaded...
01:49<MotoHoss>1. I rebooted with a working system to test an install cd.
01:49<jm_>so grub doesn't fail to install then
01:49-!-nata [~nata@] has joined #debian
01:50<MotoHoss>I downloaded and used another one. reformatted and repartioned...
01:50<MotoHoss>no grub or grub/2 won't install and the grub/2 that was installed fails...
01:51<MotoHoss>I started with a clean disk... right before #1 and lenny installed ok.
01:51<jm_>check your grub.cfg
01:53-!-freealan [] has quit [Quit: leaving]
01:53-!-alvarezp [] has joined #debian
01:53<MotoHoss>as in cat /boot/grub.cfg ?
01:54<tenzind>hi, how big would a debian mirror for "lenny, i386 with main,main/debian-installer,contrib,non-free sections" be?
01:54<MotoHoss>says file not found
01:54-!-srini [~chatzilla@] has joined #debian
01:55-!-alvarezp [] has quit []
01:55<MotoHoss>ls /boot has the kernel the config and files in it...
01:56<MotoHoss>this is from the grub2 'rescue' prompt...
01:56<jm_>!dstats lenny
01:56<dpkg>Debian Distro Stats on lenny... 22365 packages, 1917 maintainers, 56561 MB installed size, 19877 MB compressed size.
01:57<jm_>no, it's /boot/grub/grub.cfg
01:58<MotoHoss>ls /boot/grub file not found.
01:58-!-nanou [] has joined #debian
01:59<tenzind>jm_: would that 56561 MB be the size of the mirror just for lenny/i386 ?
01:59-!-Requiem [] has joined #debian
02:00<jm_>tenzind: read your screen, 56561 is *installed* size, compressed is for packages and I am not sure that number has non-free et al in it
02:01<MotoHoss>heh apt-get install all ?
02:02<jm_>where are you looking for /boot/grub?
02:03<jm_>so in grub or what?
02:03<MotoHoss>command prompt has 'grub rescue>'
02:03<MotoHoss>yeah in grub
02:03<jm_>do you have a separate /boot partition?
02:04-!-ared [] has joined #debian
02:04<jm_>sounds like your new grub install failed but you have old grub installed from before, reinstall it
02:04<MotoHoss>on vacation this wekk and have this athlon xp box to test on... so that's what I was doing...
02:04<MotoHoss>jm_ , that's what I tried....
02:05<MotoHoss>I installed... and had a basic system grub2 was working.
02:07<jm_>do it again now
02:07<dpkg>So you installed windows after debian, huh? Tssk. Boot to your debian install disk or whatever else you have, switch to the other console (alt-f2), then mount your root filesystem (mount -t ext2 /dev/whatever /target ; mount --bind /dev /target/dev ), then chroot into it (chroot /target) then run "mount /proc ; grub-install /dev/hda && update-grub" Also ask me about <dual boot guide>.
02:08<jm_>that's how to do it
02:08*MotoHoss doesn't use windows.
02:09<MotoHoss>aha that is something I haven't tried though.

02:13<phorce1>OK, with the exception that I'm on one of my Debian machines this is off topic but kicking my butt. I have a .CSV file with 4 fields. The LAST field contains entries that need to be minimum 6 characters. Some are not. How can I sort to float the short entries to the top?
02:16<jm_>is it numeric?
02:17<phorce1>jm_: alphanumeric -- it's a password field. Pretty much anything goes.
02:19<amorphous__>cadaver claims to be a command line webdav tool, but i'm having problems finding anythong that can tell me how to use it -- is there a howto that any of yous know about?
02:19<jm_>phorce1: well you'd need to sort it on its length then
02:19<amorphous__>i want to write scripts to webdav stuff, n(?))

02:21-!-ace2001ac [] has joined #debian
02:21-!-haxi [] has joined #debian
02:21<phorce1>jm_: That's the part that's beating me up. The lines need to stay 'complete' (all 4 fields) and I can't figure out how to count the characters in the last field and sort by how many characters are in ONLY that field.
02:22<amorphous__>and permissions... is there a way to control permissions in webdav? or do all people always have complete r/w access?
02:23<jm_>phorce1: this is pretty dumb idea, but: awk '{print $0 " " length($4)}' file | sort -k 5,5 | awk '{printf("%s %s %s %s\n", $1, $2, $3, $4)}'
02:24-!-dr-evil [~dr-evil@] has joined #debian
02:24<jm_>you should use sort -n
02:24<sander>Anyone have any recommendations on an appointment/todo list application?
02:26<phorce1>jm_: I are definitely no awk user. ;-) Let me run that against the file and see what breaks. Thanks.
02:27<jm_>what do you mean breaks?

02:33<phorce1>jm_: The awk line just added a " 0" at the end of every line (eg. "user","fname","lname","pass" 0)
02:33<jm_>phorce1: then its structure is not like you described it
02:34-!-madrescher [] has joined #debian

02:35<jm_>phorce1: yeah and I assumed space :), use -F',' for first awk and you'll want to correct the last printout too
02:36<jm_>but why are you not doing this in openoffice then?
02:36-!-adema [~adema@] has joined #debian

02:38-!-MrNaz [] has joined #debian
02:38<CptObvious>I am using gnome i believe, amd64. Whenever i try run a flash file i get 'The SWF file caused a fatal error in the swfdec decoder. This likely means that there is a bug in swfdec.' Does anyone have any fix for this because i have no idea whatsoever..
02:39-!-uhriventis [] has joined #debian
02:39<jm_>CptObvious: try switching to non-free flash plugin
02:39<phorce1>jm_: Now have the character count in a separate column but still "0" for every line. Lemme play with it a minute and see what I forgot. man awk, here I come
02:40<amorphous__>gsimmons, i'm not sure how that allows me to automate any process' with cadaver/webdav. if I'm opening a prompt, am i not stuck at it working it by hand while i'm in ther??
02:40<uhriventis>I've got a problem, I've running Dreamlinux which is a Debian base system so I suppose this channel works. Anyway, the problem is is I can't find what my PCI loction is. Example: 0:2:0 or 2:9:0 how do I go abou this?
02:40<CptObvious>I've heard about non-free sources, but this is fresh install of deb. I have no idea how to access them..
02:40<jm_>phorce1: you also need to change sort to use -k 2,2
02:40<dpkg>non-free is probably a component which contains software that does not comply with the <DFSG>. To add non-free packages to your packages index, ask me about <non-free sources>. To see which non-free packages are installed on your system, ask me about <vrms>. For the Non-free tracking system, see
02:41<gsimmons>amorphous__: I don't believe cadaver can be used non-interactively, no.
02:41-!-Mobil [] has joined #debian
02:41<amorphous__>gsimmons, can webdav?
02:41<amorphous__>ie) can you mount a webdav?

02:45<CptObvious>i think i am root
02:45<amorphous__>i'm seting up pc's for a friend who has a few cafe's. We want the staff to be able to fill out their cash sheets, and for him to have access to them wherever he is. Also that he can write templates for them to read but not write to. I've gone for webdav.
02:46<jm_>verify with "id"

02:46<amorphous__>but i want to get write access to those sheets away from the staff the next day so there's no changing them after the fact etc...
02:47<amorphous__>thanks jm_ i'll check it out :)
02:47<CptObvious>'uid=0(root) gid=0(root) groups=0(root)'
02:47<jm_>then verify file permissions, maybe it's read-only and your editor is too dumb to handle it ;)

The long-drawn-out part will be that I did not have full names stored so 99% of the users have a "name" of "Domain User" until they get upset and have me correct it manually.

03:10<CptObvious>I presume iceweasel is compatible with firefox plugins? If so swf-player plugin for firefox still isnt allowing me to play flash files. I am on a 64bit system i think, i think i have heard of other people witht he same problem however when i try their fixes apt-cache search cannot find the files needed, or it just doesnt work.
03:10<phorce1>496 users with passwords shorter than 6 characters. I think I'll just pad them with 1's by hand to a 6-count total and use a mass email stating "if your password was less...[idiot]...then you need to add"
03:10<phorce1>(maybe i should leave out the [idiot] bit?
03:10<enouf>no :-P
03:10<CptObvious>I thin you should emphasise it

03:15<CptObvious>apparently that package does not exist
03:15<enouf>grah - Backports
03:15<Nemoder>CptObvious: the alternative is to run a 32bit browser
03:15<phorce1>CptObvious: or search arount about running 32bit userland in a 64bit kernel. The *ONLY* benefit to running a 64bit kernel at the moment is direct access to RAM above 8Gig -- you have over 8Gig of RAM?
03:15<enouf>phorce1: 4GB ;-)
03:15<CptObvious>nah, i have 4 gb dead
03:15<phorce1>eno-- you're right. Been a few months since I fiddled with it
03:16*phorce1 typo typoo ty pooo
03:16<enouf>setup a chroot and install and use a 32bit browser, and plugins .. or something
03:16-!-trueno [~trueno@] has joined #debian
03:16<CptObvious>i think 64bit is just what it came as when i downloaded the iso. I didnt specifically go for any particular type, just one that would fit the CPU
03:16<enouf>phorce1: if you atleast chuckled at my chimp joke, i might've let it slide :-)
03:17<CptObvious>SO i can just go find a 32 browser out in normalweb, k
03:17<phorce1>CptObvious: To make life easier as a newbie -- go back and reinstall a plain x86 Debian system
03:17<Nemoder>there really aren't that many problems with 64bit system
03:17<trueno>Hi! How can I find out if a jpg file is a multipage one? And how can I convert it to multiple jpg files?
03:17<CptObvious>I dont plan on being a newbie for long, (well, you know) and this will probaby give me more problems to overcome?
03:17<enouf>CptObvious: if you have 4GB or RAM or moer, use a -686-bigmem debian kernel
03:18<enouf>on a 32bit Install (i386)
03:18<phorce1>64bit works wonders for things like database servers with tons of RAM. Kinda sucks as a desktop system
03:18<enouf>not amd64
03:18<Nemoder>CptObvious: you can install ia32-libs and run any 32bit app on a 64bit system
03:18-!-hever [] has joined #debian
03:18<CptObvious>i thought amd 64 NEEDED a 64 bit system? Huh. Ill try the 32bit library
03:19<Nemoder>but even with the 32bit libs you'll need a wrapper for a 64bit browser to load 32bit plugins, or just use a 32bit browser
03:20<CptObvious>yeah, i was thinking that, im just going to try download firefox from the moz website, it worked on my last PC, so i presume its standard at 32bit
03:20<enouf>CptObvious: maybe try #debian-amd64 here and on Freenode - but also see if this still applies .. oops
03:20<enouf> says now -- > Alioth Could Not Connect to Database:
03:21<enouf>google that doc maybe
03:21<phorce1>CptObvious: 64bit cpus are backward compatible. And should usually be used in 32bit mode unless there is a real need to go 64bit. It'll be a year or two more before 64bit userland is a comfortable fit for a desktop machine.
03:22<Nemoder>CptObvious: if you install 3rd party software I recommend doing so in user mode rather than root or you may risk overwriting system files
03:22<Nemoder>I run amd64 with Lenny on my desktop just fine, setting up flash was really the only hurdle
03:23<nevyn>phorce1: if you have 4gb of ram or more there are benefits to 64bit kernels at least
03:24<Nemoder>I also enjoy testing some of the new games that have 64bit releases, although the performance gains are marginal
03:24*phorce1 tends to install everythingg in sight to "play with" and that caused breakage when I tested a 64bit kernel. Dangers of large hard drives and a fast pipe.
03:25<phorce1>nevyn: But only if you actually have a need to access all of the RAM over 4G at once. Otherwise a 32bit kernel can page out pretty much any amount of RAM very efficiently.

03:28<phorce1>nevyn: But my 2G machine hardly ever touches disk swap and my 4G machine I don't think EVER has. that means I have no need to use that much RAM. What I have is never all used up.
03:28<CptObvious>This may sound silly, but a few months back when i was testing debian, i could change resolution for about 20 different resolutions. Now i can only change to 3, 1024/768 being the biggest (which makes EVERYTHING on the screen massive!) How do i add more resultions please?
03:28<enouf>nevyn: i can see 64kernel + 64userland actually hurting performance
03:29<enouf>nevyn: i can see 64kernel + *32*userland actually hurting performance
03:29<Nemoder>CptObvious: what videocard/driver do you use?
03:29<CptObvious>one sec

03:33<CptObvious>annoying thing is, i HAVE a driver disc, but it only supports windows
03:33<enouf>heh ... what else is new
03:34<Nemoder>thankfully linux includes most of the drives you'll ever need
03:34*nevyn doesn't trust vendors to write drivers
03:34<CptObvious>just got to try find them? yes?
03:34<enouf>are you using the ATI 3D driver stuff?
03:35<enouf>whatever applies .. the .run, the fglrx stuff , etc etc
03:35<Nemoder>If you need high performance 3D then you'll need the proprietary driver, otherwise the free driver should suffice
03:35<CptObvious>Sorry, but i really have no idea, it is my first graphics card, ever. and my second time on debian.
03:35<CptObvious>I doutb ill be using it to its potential lol

03:37<enouf>phorce1: the sun might as well be out and up - it's hot enough :-P
03:38<CptObvious>would fglrx be an acceptable one to run? I ask because that states 'all models' wheras the xorg one states upto x1050, wheras mine is x1550

03:39<CptObvious>aha, fun stuff.
03:40<enouf>finally .. a smile :-)
03:41<Nemoder>CptObvious: if you need the fglrx this looks like a pretty good guide:
03:42<enouf>CptObvious: which/what states up to 1050? radeon, ati, or radeonhd? ... oh ffs, you mean fglrx crap
03:42<CptObvious>"radeon" xorg driverFor chipsets prior to R500 (ie. models up to and including the X1050), use the "radeon" xorg driver and optionally install 'libgl1-mesa-dri' for 3D acceleration.
03:43<Nemoder>mesa is software acceleration which while functional and probably more stable is very slow
03:45<CptObvious>ive found a guide online how to change my drivers over. Going to try the xorg one and the libgll-mesa-dri. This should be fun
03:46<CptObvious>Hah! the guide looks like greek to me

06:27<Bon>Hi, I am installing xorg-server1.4 and it states 'Package requirements (pixman-1 >= 0.9.5) were not met:' From what i can ascertain from searches i need libpixman1-dev. Except when i apt-get install it. It makes no difference to xorg-server configure. SO basically, how can i point xorg-server to libpixman1 because it is just not seeing it.

09:58<tompickles>maybe abiword
09:58<enouf>there's an xfce CD iirc
09:59<enouf>and etch one
09:59<tompickles>enouf: huh?
09:59<enouf>er an Etch one .. but that's not kmuto, not sure about etchnhalf
09:59<Nemoder>you can always install from CD1 and then change your sources.list to use online repos once you get the network working
10:00<tompickles>i was going to install etch
10:00<tompickles>the stable one
10:00<enouf>There are a few specific Etch CDs, CD 1 is if you want Gnome, KDE can be installed instead, but requires more than CD 1, and there are separate KDE, and XFCE CDs, if you want one of those DEs instead of the default Gnome
10:00<tompickles>Nemoder: not sure how to do that - i came form ubuntu where it is all done for me
10:00<tompickles>enouf: where?
10:01<enouf>do /msg dpkg di , do /msg dpkg ig, do /msg dpkg etchnhalf
10:01<tompickles>what is this /msg dpkg - new to irc also :D
10:01<enouf>tompickles: you never used uboto?
10:02<enouf>tompickles: do that in your IRC client
10:02<tompickles>i guessed that!
10:02<tompickles>what is it though

10:51<Aleric>SUPERSLADAK: If you run 'apt-get update' you sync your local packages database with the current real ones. If you omit that, then apt-get upgrade will do nothing because that just tried to get the 'latest' versions, which are still the same (locally in your database), and eventually it leads to a problem if you try to install a new package and your box tries to get a version that isn't even there anymore.

12:25<kop>themill: *sigh* This is where I started. Aptitude won't unhold it. It says the package is being held back.

12:29<kop>themill : I know all that. I've not yet tried using --set/get-selections to wack at the hold flag. But the odd thing is that according to dpkg --get-selections there is nothing on hold, even though aptitude search says there is.

13:20<kop>themill : And the question is, wouldn't everybody want the rules.
13:20<kerin>I'm doing a debootstrap install of Debian Sarge. debootstrap runs for a while, and then says "no /usr/share/debootstrap/devices.tar.gz. cannot create devices."

13:22-!-mode/#debian [+l 381] by debhelper
13:22<themill>kop: probably, but not necessarily. USB-to-serial converters tend to be a little fickle in that they move from machine to machine a bit like usb disks. If there was an extra entry in the udev rules every time I plugged in a usb disk into my machine that could grow quite messy quite quickly.

13:23<themill>kop: But it's probably a generically useful thing, I guess. Particularly if you used the device ID as the node (or a link for the node), since most of these devices have a unique id in them.

13:57<bon>Can anyone suggest a good 64bit flash plugin? There was a good one told last night, but i had to reinstall since then and have lost it. I dont want nspluginwrapper as i have never been able to get it working
13:58<Torsten_W>it's the one and only 64bit flash plugin
13:59<bon>Found the one i wanted last night with a very ... exact google search
13:59<bon>sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree to anyone interested
13:59<bon>well, thats what it was called anyway, now just to FIND it
13:59-!-uhriventis [] has joined #debian
14:00<Torsten_W>bon: flushplugin-nonfree is not 64bit
14:00<dutchy>bon: that works in 64-bit by installing ndiswrapper (the package does that)
14:01<bon>ah, the backwards compatibility thing? Ah well. Ill try gnash then
14:01<bon>thanks fr thr ecc.
14:01<bon>for the recc*
14:01<dutchy>so if you don't want to use ndiswrapper, the only alternative is gnash
14:01<dondelelcaro>gnash actually works surprisingly well

15:32<kerin>however, my hardware is quite old and i think upgrading to 2.6 would be a horrible idea.

15:56<dondelelcaro>not to my knowledge, and I'd run and hide from such a thing if I knew about it

16:39<witte>client: the amd64 should theoretically have a slightly better performance, but you wont notice that under normal usage
16:39-!-Junior01 [] has joined #debian
16:40<client>i guess that was a better way of posing the question "would the difficulty be offset by the better performance" and i guess the answer is not under normal use... so i will go with the easier one.

20:16<Karl80386>well, i surrender. mount tells me that /tmp/disks-conf-sda1 is not a block device. thanks anyway. bye.
20:16<nevyn>Karl80386: thaat's cause it's not.
20:16<dendrite>Karl80386: The block device is /dev/sda1
20:16<themill>philsf: depends on your definition of safe and production. I'm using etchnhalf on my laptop but I wouldn't use it on a server just yet. (Also, not everything that is uploaded to etch-proposed-updates will ever make it into a point release)
20:16<nevyn>/dev/sda1 is the block device you're looking for.
20:17<dendrite>Karl80386: The mount point it's *currently* mounted at is that /tmp/disks-conf-sda1 ...
20:17<philsf>themill: etchnhalf is just the .24 kernel, correct?
20:17<philsf>not the entire proposed-updates branch
20:17<themill>philsf: it's 2.6.24 plus a few other things. /msg dpkg etchnhalf
20:18<Karl80386>now it says that /dev/sda1 doesn't exist
20:18<themill>philsf: *most* things in etch-proposed-updates will be released with the next point release.
20:19<philsf>themill: I read the msg, and the site, but the instuctions are to enable the proposed-updates. I guess my real question is: is it safe (as in no regressions) to use all the updates there?
20:19<dendrite>Karl80386: does it say "mount point" /dev/sda1 doesn't exist?
20:19<philsf>themill: do you happen to know what will *not* go in the next point release?
20:20<themill>philsf: these are *proposed* updates. One presumes that there are issues still to be worked on that make them *proposed* not released.
20:20<Karl80386>no, it says special device instead of mount point
20:20-!-libervisco [] has joined #debian
20:20<dendrite>Karl80386: Right, because /dev/sda1 is the DEVICE
20:21<themill>philsf: there might be more bugs fixed. Sometimes maintainers upload packages that fix bugs that are not considered serious enough to justify changing stable so the updates are not included. I don't know if there are any packages in that situation for 4.0r4.
20:21<dendrite>Karl80386: You need to tell your system to mount that device at a mount point. The two things are not interchangable.

20:22<philsf>themill: I really thought the testing was done in, well, testing :), and the -proposed was the final step before the final release. I asked in #-release about a timeline for the next point release, but there is none.
20:22<philsf>themill: If I'm correct in these assumptions, I guess it's safe enough for my purposes, but I'd like to check it here before using it
20:22<themill>philsf: no, testing is what might become the next stable; stable-proposed-updates is what might become the next point release.

20:24<dendrite>Karl80386: Earlier you wrote "now it says that /dev/sda1 doesn't exist" -- then you clarified that it said "no, it says special device instead of mount point". You need to THINK about what you are doing, and take care to not be sloppy in your thinking, let alone in your system config files...
20:25<themill>philsf: indeed. stable-proposed-updates are not backports at all. They are supposed to be only new packages that fix serious bugs that would otherwise result in data loss or making the package unusable or security issues.

20:48<debacle>cant i see who open 5190 tcp socket ? and if yes how ?
20:48<Supaplex>debacle: oh, use -a for all ports.

20:50<_ZeuZ_>it will not be shown for example in netstat -puta
20:50<_ZeuZ_>(as the name of the service)
20:50<_ZeuZ_>but it will be shown with the port number
20:51<witte>Karl80386: as root: umount -l /dev/sda1
20:51<witte>Karl80386: or if that does not work, umount /path/to/mountpoint

20:55<_ZeuZ_>Karl80386, it gives you that error because you're trying to unmount the device that has / mounted on it
20:55<witte>thozhoo: because your knoppix has newer drivers than debian etch, or because knoppix includes the radion driver?

21:00<_ZeuZ_>Also: Why so many Network Time Protocol connections? Doin't you thjink one NTP server is enough?
21:01<debacle>anyway i cant see any socket open/listen on 5190 TCP
21:01<_ZeuZ_>Do something:
21:01<_ZeuZ_>(as root)

21:01<_ZeuZ_>tcpdump -vvv -i INTERFACE (replace the interface with the outgoing one) | grep 5190 >>>>>>> That will help you see if there's transmision or not on that port
21:02*Supaplex ponders a possible layer 8 networking issue
21:02<_ZeuZ_>if there's transmision on that port, it will show some output, if not, it will stand by until there's some traffic
21:02<Supaplex>uhm, tcpdump can accept "port 5190" as a pcap expression (no need for grep)
21:02<debacle>telnet: connect to address Operation timed out
21:02<witte>Supaplex: layer 8, as in osi layer?
21:02<Supaplex>yes, as in "user"
21:02<dendrite>Supaplex: LOL
21:02<_ZeuZ_>Supaplex, The grep is for only seing the transfer on that port, without the rest, instead of appying it directly to tcpdump

21:07<_ZeuZ_>debacle, that pretty much doesn't say anything

23:56<xid>Requiem, for the server use a old hardware, less noise
23:56<xid>my thought , sure
23:56<Requiem>It's being build fanless, except for the PSU, so its about as silent as it can get
23:57<Alik>xid: after apt-get update do i need to reboot (after kernel update)
23:58<rrm>why is that apt-get upgrades the kerner right out of the box with the same one?
23:58<xid>but not absolutelly
23:59<Alik>yea ?
23:59<xid>rrm because is a lettle upgrade
23:59<xid>Alik, yes
