01:05<km>Why would the command "fdisk -l <device>" print a partition table, but the command "cfdisk <device>" fail with "FATAL ERROR: Bad primary partition 1:"?

01:07-!-cahoot [~radix@] has joined #debian
01:07-!-teicah [] has joined #debian
01:13<jm_>km: because cfdisk is more retarded?
01:14-!-ergoran [] has joined #debian
01:15-!-teicah [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
01:15<km>I suspect failing hardware. fsck.ext3 -y just took about half an hour to run, and the "mount" command now reports "wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hda2, missing codepage or helper program, or other error".
01:16<jm_>check your kernel logs
01:17<km>"dmesg | tail" says "EXT2-fs error (device hda2): ext2_check_descriptors: Block bitmap for group 256 not in group (block 0)! EXT2-fs: group descriptors corrupted!"
01:17<ogy>hello my alsa works fine until my artsd gets started, anny ide?
01:17<jm_>but you don't see any IDE/ATA errors?
01:18-!-foka [~foka@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
01:18<cahoot>ogy: either disable artsd or tell you apps to use artsd
01:18<km>jm_: Thanks for asking. No, I see no IDE/ATA errors.
01:19<jm_>km: then it doesn't look like disk issue, perhaps it's your RAM or some other factor
01:19<ogy>cahoot nothing else is using the sound
01:19<jm_>it is, artsd is using it
01:20<ogy>mk how did you create the partition table?
01:21<ogy>artsd is only crashing it
01:21-!-swo [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
01:22<cahoot>ogy: so if you disable artsd all is fine?
01:22<ogy>the same no sound form kde
01:22-!-ccube [] has joined #debian
01:22<cahoot>ogy: true you get rid of system sounds
01:23-!-km [] has left #debian [Kopete 0.12.7 :]
01:24<ogy>if i run alsaconf i can play sound using the command play, if i start artsd there is no more sound evan after i stop artsd until after i rerun alsaconf
01:26<cahoot>ogy: fuser -v /dev/snd/* /dev/dsp returns NIL?

01:32<ogy>cahoot some stuff can i paste it ?
01:33<cahoot>on a pastebin
01:33<ogy>link ?
01:33<dpkg>Do not paste more than 3 lines to this channel. Instead, use: or or for pics. Remember to tell us the URL of your paste!
01:36<cahoot>ogy: right so artsd is bound to your sounddevice, hence locking out all other soundapps
01:37<ogy>ju thats fine for me however i get no sound
01:37<jm_>yeah you'll have to repeat it another 99 times
01:37-!-Dis [] has joined #debian
01:37<jm_>and then it might sink in
01:38-!-ranix [] has joined #debian
01:38<ogy>if i kill artsd it would be free to be used by lets say play
01:39<jm_>yes, or configure dmix
01:39-!-Dis [] has left #debian []
01:39<jm_>or tell your apps to always use artsd
01:39<jm_>like already mentioned
01:39<cahoot>ogy: just for testing purposes disable artsd, restart alsa and test sound with speaker-test (in a terminal)
01:40-!-lennie [~easthero@] has left #debian [Leaving]
01:42<ogy>cahoot that works
01:43-!-shashi [~shashi@] has joined #debian
01:43<cahoot>ogy: you can run a few instances of speaker-test -t wav in different terms to make sure dmix is enabled
01:44<ogy>girl says front left front left ....
01:44<cahoot>ogy: ok so you must make the choice

01:45<ogy>cahoot choice ?

01:46<cahoot>err artsd

01:46-!-adema [] has joined #debian
01:46-!-tyi [] has joined #debian
01:47<tyi>hi all, quick question, is it possible to block encrypted BT traffic with iptables?
01:48<jm_>tyi: can you distinguish it from non-encrypted?
01:48<ogy>o so artsd wont work with alsa ? oke what sound dirver do i need to install to get artsd working.
01:48<tyi>I'm not sure? I'll refine my question, is there anyway to block out all BT traffic be it encrypted or not? lol
01:49<jm_>yes, l7 filter has a match for bittorrent protocol
01:49<cahoot>ogy: we're back to origo
01:50<km2>The "mount" and "fsck.ext3" commands fail with a corrupted ext3 partition, but "debugfs" seems to work...
01:51<tyi>ok thanks.
01:51<tyi>Will look into it.
01:51-!-freealan [] has quit [Quit: leaving]
01:52-!-Martinn [] has joined #debian
01:52<ogy>cahoot can the kde sound work without artsd ?
01:53<ogy>km did you create this partition the normal way or just using fdisk ?
01:53<cahoot>as I said earlier I believe you get rid of the annoying 'system sounds' as a bonus if you disable artsd
01:54<cahoot>OTOH I don't use kde so don't know if you can resurrect them without reverting to artsd
01:54<km2>ogy: Thanks for asking. Unfortunately, I've forgotten how I created the partition by now. It's been months since I created it. Having said that, my usual preference is to use cfdisk.
01:54<jm_>km2: run badblocks on it
01:54<Martinn>i wanna mount cdrom, what filesystem does it use ?
01:55-!-emonge [~emonge@] has quit [Quit: Saliendo]
01:55<km2>jm_: badblocks seems like a good idea. Thanks. I may also try the "show_super_stats" command in debugfs.
01:55-!-Martinn [] has quit []
01:56<jm_>you normally don't have to specify mount type
01:56<jm_>err fs type
01:58<ogy>cahoot im an idiot you are correct it works just fine with no artsd
01:58<ogy>jm -t iso9660
01:58-!-matth [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
02:00<ogy>jm in fstab it would look something like "/dev/hdc /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 user,noauto 0 0"

02:03-!-Martinn [] has joined #debian
02:04<km2>jm_: badblocks is running now...
02:04<Martinn>hi when i wanna mount /dev/cdrom, it says no such special device... when i try to mount CDROM, it says cdrom is block device... :(
02:04<jm_>km2: yeah it will take a while
02:05<jm_>Martinn: check if it became cdrom1 or cdrom2 or ...
02:05<jm_>Martinn: or simply grep 1 /sys/block/*/removable
02:05<km2>jm_: Oh. Do you have a sense of how long badblocks may take for a 500GB drive?
02:05<jm_>that will find the device for you
02:05<jm_>km2: yeah, I'd say in the range 1.5-2h
02:07-!-Celelibi_ [] has joined #debian
02:07<km2>jm_OK. Thanks. Now's a good time to get dinner anyways.
02:07-!-Martinn [] has left #debian []
02:08-!-not4u [] has joined #debian
02:08<jm_>km2: you should have used -v switch
02:08<jm_>or was it -s?
02:09<not4u>anyone got vmware working?
02:10<km2>jm_: -s shows progress, -v is verbose mode.
02:11<km2>jm_: I'm inclined to not abort badblocks, to minimize the chance of further corruption, but what do you think?
02:11<jm_>km2: naah you can safely interrupt it in read-only mode
02:12<km2>jm_: Do you happen to know how badblocks can identify bad blocks without writing?
02:13-!-Martinn [] has joined #debian
02:14<Martinn>JM_ : pls tell me again this command : grep 1 /sys/block... ?
02:14<jm_>km2: it just reads it and if the block is bad kernel will report an error, nothing fancy to it
02:14<jm_><jm_> Martinn: or simply grep 1 /sys/block/*/removable
02:15<km2>jm_: Do you happen to know how the kernel knows when a block is bad?
02:15-!-Martinn [] has left #debian []
02:16<jm_>km2: the disk will return an error, the infamous error= status= stuff for old IDE code, libata has even more awkward error messages
02:17<km2>jm_: OK, that makes sense.
02:17<km2>jm_: New topic.
02:18<km2>jm_: It seems to me that most hard drives can be expected to have some bad blocks. What do you suppose I should look for in the output of badblocks?
02:19-!-devil_ is now known as devil
02:20-!-roodie [] has joined #debian
02:22<jm_>km2: no they don't have bad blocks that you should see if they are new
02:23-!-lfsir [~lfsir@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
02:23-!-lfsir [~lfsir@] has joined #debian
02:24<km2>jm_: It's not clear to me what may be "new". New bad blocks? New hard drives? Can you elaborate?
02:24-!-silviu [~silviu@] has joined #debian
02:24<jm_>km2: new hard drives
02:24-!-tyi_ [] has joined #debian
02:24-!-silviu [~silviu@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
02:25<km2>jm_: My hard drive is a few months old. Do you suppose it's possible it may be failing early, and enough blocks are going bad to show up in badblocks' output?
02:27-!-tyi [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
02:27<jm_>km2: I've had new drives show up badblocks after 2 months, but that's pretty rare
02:28<km2>jm_: That's interesting.
02:30<km2>jm_: If you're otherwise preoccupied when badblocks finishes running, 1.5 to 2 hours from now, would you care to suggest now what I should do if a.) any bad blocks are reported and b.) none are?
02:32<jm_>km2: you should ask for a new drive based on warranty if badblocks show up ;)
02:32<km2>jm_: OK. What if no bad blocks are reported?
02:33<jm_>km2: in that case I would use memtest86
02:34<km2>jm_: OK. Thank you for your time and attention.

02:42<not4u>ok. tired of not being able to share ALSA between applications. always get an error message that another process is using ALSA.
02:43<not4u>any way to enable ALSA to be shared between two apps?
02:44-!-Martinn [] has joined #debian
02:44<Martinn>i tried to grep 1 /SYS/BLOCK/*/REMOVABLE and it says : /sys/block/loop0/removable PERMISSION DENIED
02:44<cahoot>not4u: : fuser -v /dev/snd/* /dev/dsp* returns what?
02:46<jm_>Martinn: ignore that, check what it says for other devices
02:46-!-visik7 [] has joined #debian
02:47<Martinn>you mean i have to type mount ?
02:47<not4u>paste ^^
02:49<jm_>no, check what grep says for other dirs in /sys - possibly just run this instead: grep 1 /sus/block/[hs]*/removable
02:49<cahoot>not4u: stop kaffeine and run a few instances of speaker-test -t wav -c2 from a couple of terminals - no concurrency?
02:49<jm_>correct sus to sys in that command
02:51<cahoot>not4u: you get simultaneous output?
02:51<not4u>no. they are out of sync like a cannon... but the same audio
02:52-!-mode/#debian [+l 320] by debhelper
02:52<cahoot>not4u: ok so alsa's dmix works - seems it's a problem with kaffeine
02:53<not4u>ok. so i got the error message when i tried to run vmware. the guest os said that /dev/dsp was busy and there would be no sound
02:53<cahoot>not4u: so you have vmware involved too?
02:53<not4u>i do now
02:54<cahoot>not4u: apps that use /dev/dsp are trickier
02:54<cahoot>not4u: they don't access th
02:54<not4u>k... bbl. gotta sleep. thanks anyway
02:54<cahoot>not4u: they don't access native alsa

03:10<km2>Certainly I'm not the only individual who wants to spend less time recovering from hard drive failures. Do linux and debian have a mature hot swappable raid yet?
03:10-!-samy [~samy@] has joined #debian
03:10<jm_>linux software raid is supposed to be very mature
03:11-!-samy [~samy@] has left #debian []
03:12<km2>jm_: I find myself wondering, as a practical matter, how easy or hard it would be to replace a hard drive in a normal case with linux'software raid.
03:12-!-famelix [~famelix@] has joined #debian
03:12<jm_>km2: it should be simple, check the software raid howto
03:13-!-famelix [~famelix@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
03:14-!-mcsniff [~idealcs@] has joined #debian
03:14<NCommander>km2, in theory, it should be pop out bad drive, pop in new
03:15<NCommander>And wait for the RAID to automatically rebuild the mirror
03:15<NCommander>I've seen backup systems that (ab)use that system using five harddrives or so
03:17-!-bdusauso [] has joined #debian
03:17<jm_>especially with sata hot-pluggable drives
03:18<NCommander>HDD failures are pretty rare though
03:18<NCommander>I usually only have one go once every 3-4 years
03:18<NCommander>and that's just because i'm fairly abusive to my machines
03:19<jm_>that's still one too many :)
03:19<km2>Are there computer cases with open drive bays for swapping hard drives without shuting down linux and unscrewing the case?
03:19<ranix>you're doing it wrong
03:19<ranix>DLT tape is what you're looking for
03:19<km2>NCommander: I wouldn't be surprised if my drives last a year on average.
03:20<ranix>the answer to your question is yes, but you do not need to frequently hot swap drives
03:20<jm_>km2: that's typically reserved for servers, but yeah
03:20<NCommander>km2: WTF are you doing to those drives
03:21<ranix>NCommander: there is nothing wrong with 5 hard drives
03:21-!-Lethalman [] has joined #debian
03:22<ranix>I have 4 in one of my servers
03:22<km2>NCommander: I suppose the short answer is, I use them 24x7. The long answer might involve the various cron jobs that run daily.
03:23<NCommander>I'm really suprised its only a year
03:23<NCommander>I run a few m68k buildds
03:23-!-mikes [~mikes@] has joined #debian
03:23-!-mcsniff [~idealcs@] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
03:23<NCommander>and a hurd one
03:23<NCommander>I had one corrupt the filesystem after a year, but no issues beyond that
03:23<km2>NCommander: Yes, I'm surprised too, and I find myself wondering, like you I think, whether something is unduly stressing them.
03:24<NCommander>If the macine running hot
03:24<jm_>km2: excessive heat?
03:24<NCommander>That would fry a drive nice
03:24<km2>NCommander: I suppose two of the more disk intensive cron jobs might be rdiff-backup and dlocate.
03:25<NCommander>I dunno, it can't be as bad as compiling software for months upon months on end
03:25-!-carlosalvatore [~carlosalv@] has joined #debian
03:25<km2>jm_: I doubt it, but I'd love to learn how to check.
03:25-!-kolter [] has quit [Quit: désolé pour la polution par effet de bord]
03:26<NCommander>km2, I think there is a program for Linux like hddtemp
03:26-!-kolter [] has joined #debian
03:26<NCommander>or query cat /proc/ide/*drive*/smart_status
03:26<ranix>km2: here's a hint: use a thermometer
03:27<ranix>most motherboards have thermometers for your convenience and ease of use
03:27<km2>ranix: Ha ha! What temperature range would you consider "normal"?
03:27<NCommander>Is packages.d.o having issues?
03:27<jm_>km2: yeah use hddtemp or use smart to verify its temperature
03:28<NCommander>km2, check the HDD specifications, it lists what the drive is rated for
03:28<ranix>km2: under 70c
03:29<ranix>probably under 60c
03:29-!-vook [] has joined #debian
03:29<jm_>I would consider 60 alarming
03:29<NCommander>my laptop HDD runs around 70
03:29<NCommander>But intel macs are known for bad cooling
03:29<ranix>60 shouldn't be unusual under heavy load
03:29<ranix>google had some nifty drive statistics
03:34<km2>NCommander & jm_: OK, thanks for the tip. As a practical matter, what would you do if your hard drive were too hot?
03:34-!-AzaTht [] has joined #debian
03:34<NCommander>km2, increase ventation
03:35<km2>NCommander: So, would you replace the case's fans with ones that pump more cubic feet per minute of air?
03:35<NCommander>That would help
03:36<NCommander>Without knowing your case configuration, and such, I can only give you some general tips

04:19<alvic>HI all, could anybody help me to make pidgin 2.3.1 working with ICQ on etch? I replace with new one, but aol protocol has disapear. Any help?
04:20-!-Phoenix_the_II [] has joined #debian
04:23<padski>alvic, perhaps
04:24<sheldonh>jm_: there's a lot in there, but most of the difference between it and what i've done applies to gssd, which i'm not using :(
04:25<sheldonh>jm_: etch supports nfsv4, right? google says so, but /usr/share/doc/nfs-common/ describes it as "new and not very well supported" *gulp*

04:28<sheldonh>frrrrracking frustrating as ever. good old nfs :)
04:28<superlinux-2>any arabs here? I made videos in arbic on how to install debian on your computer. search google videos for "superlinux"
04:28<alvic>padski, I know the reson, I can´t find solution (yes as discribed in slashdot - absence ICQ - its unnormal in exUSSR :) )

04:31<superlinux-2>padski ok
04:32<sheldonh>jm_: pretty sure it's something i've overlooked. like, if i use an hostname instead of a network for the exports lines, the error message becomes block device host:path is write-protected, mounting read-only
04:32-!-freealan [] has joined #debian
04:32<sheldonh>(followed by cannot mount block device host:path read-only, of course) ;)
04:33<jm_>sheldonh: I am affraid I can't help much, I haven't use nfsv4 yet
04:33<sheldonh>jm_: i'm only trying in case it supports lock replication in an HA environment. otherwises, i'll just revert to v3. so it's quite frustrating to get stuck on this, given that once it works, i'll probably only use it for 90 seconds :)
04:33<alvic>Is it possible to make pidgin working with ICQ by apt-get? Or the only way is compiling sources.
04:37<km2>jm_: FYI: badblocks just finished. It reported "Pass completed, 0 bad blocks found."

04:46<superlinux-2>padski what did u aim at when u gave me the link above? just wondering..
04:46<jm_>sheldonh: yes by all means
04:47<km2>jm_: In addition to finding the root cause of the corruption, which may be temperature, it seems to me that it would also be good to fix the corruption.
04:47<km2>jm_: Do you happen to have any thoughts beyond using fsck.ext3, which in this case, reports "The superblock could not be read or does not describe a correct ext2 filesystem. If the device is valid and it really contains an ext2 filesystem (and not swap or ufs or something else), then the superblock is corrupt, and you might try running e2fsck with an alternate superblock: e2fsck -b 32768 <device>"?
04:48<jm_>km2: you can use alternate superblock
04:48<jm_>yeah like it says
04:49<km2>jm_: I'd be delighted if using an alternate superblock fixed the corruption, but I'm unsure of what number to put after the -b option. Do you know?
04:50<jm_>km2: man page lists them

04:55<km2>jm_: Yes, you're right of course, and I already have, and the "mount" command doesn't report it. Yet the error persists...
04:55<jm_>km2: hmm maybe it went poo due to error and didn't clean-up after itself properly
04:55<km2>I wonder if the file system has a corruptable flag indicating that it's in use...

05:04<padski>superlinux-2, you said "any arabs here? I made videos in arbic on how to install debian on your computer." since this is not just wanting to chat in arabic, but offering a recorded resource in arabic, I thought youwould want to publicise it in a relevant debian arabic related place.

05:16<km2>"fuser -m /mnt/<device>" reports dozens of processes using the mount point. They have odd names like "308rc" and "4569rce". I've never seen a process like that before. Have you?
05:17<jm_>km2: this is by booting a live cd?

05:27<jm_>km2: lsof /dev/foo
05:28<jm_>or just lsof|grep foo
05:28<km2>Normally, I wouldn't expect the mount point to be associated with the corrupted device, but this case has been full of surprises.
05:28<km2>jm_: "lsof /dev/<device>" returns nothing.
05:29<km2>jm_: As an aside, I need to go soon.
05:29<jm_>km2: then just use the second variant
05:29<km2>jm_: I still like your idea of rebooting and trying to run "e2fsck -b 32768 <device>" again.
05:30<jm_>but grep needs to be in major,minor format

08:32<dpkg>[rtl-wifi] the Realtek Linux wireless driver, forked from the rtl8180-sa2400 project. Supports RTL8180, RTL8185 and RTL8187 chipsets. RTL8187 support included in mainline kernel from 2.6.23, "modprobe rtl8187". All other chipsets or older kernels require driver compilation, see for instructions. Revision 67 fails to compile on i386/2.6.18, check out r62 instead. <rtl-wifi 2.6.24>

10:35<buffoon_work>Aleric, afaik an ext3 fs will always try to find as much as possible continous free space. so if you have a lot of free space it is more likely to have this file not fragmented.
10:37<Aleric>I don't have a lot of free space.
10:37<Aleric>I've been deleting files here and there to create JUST enough space.
10:37-!-LSTP_Escola [~escola@] has joined #debian
10:38<buffoon_work>so maybe you could move files temporarily to another partition, put the big file over it and move the other files back, that should save fragments too

11:01<persi>on my desktop
11:01<cogwheel>then you extract it

11:13<cogwheel>nivash, debian support
11:13<persi>it`s me screaming :D
11:13<dpkg>Ubuntu is based on Debian, but it is not Debian, and it is unlikely to live up to Debian's standards (see <Debian policy>). Only Debian is supported on #debian. Use #ubuntu ( instead.

11:15<nivash>i have a question to ask you all. Is debian's update mechanism better than ubuntu?
11:15<cogwheel>nivash, they're the same
11:15<cogwheel>persi, first check does it have a configure file or a Makefile in the package, if a configure exists you should run it, if a Makefile exists you can run Make
11:15<nivash>what makes debian special?
11:16<noflash>!tell nivash -abour why debian
11:16<persi>ok thanks SOOOO much, I thought I have to switch to windows again...
11:16<noflash>!tell nivash -about why debian
11:16<cogwheel>persi, some packages use other compile mechanisms as well, such as cmake or jam
11:17<cogwheel>in those cases i'd read the README and the INSTALL files :)
11:17<persi>btw how do I know about stuff like that, I`ve googled a lot of stuff but none of it mentioned prop driver for ESS?
11:17<Zathraz>hmm. Very nice those ot talks about Ubuntu clicky clicky, but
11:17<nivash>Is there a way to download themes via debian's package manager?

12:05<avu>sterling2, ah, seems like you already did ask a question, I do not understand it though
12:06<avu>sterling2, there are no new packages added to debian 4
12:06-!-Zathraz [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
12:06<sterling2>oh no avu
12:06<sterling2>that's not what I meant
12:07<sterling2>I want to add to my package sources the i.e. non-free debian packages from debian package base
12:07<avu>edit /etc/apt/sources.list as root
12:07<sterling2>yeah, I know
12:07-!-sebbowolf [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
12:07<avu>and in the eb line containing the debian main repository, add 'contrib non-free' ad the end
12:07<avu>then to aptitude update
12:08<sterling2>I can do this via Software Properties and add one manually

12:09-!-kalpik [~kalpik@] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
12:09<avu>sterling2, that depends on what platform you are on. I'm guessing i386 or amd64?
12:09<sterling2>oh, it's i386
12:09<avu>sterling2, in both cases, there should be a jre from sun in non-free
12:10<avu>the packages have 'sun' in their name
12:10<sterling2>another question - I am getting a little confused with these names - why are somebody calling it i386, other i586 and others again i686?
12:10<avu>so do aptitude search sun and it'll show you all the options
12:10<sterling2>this means entering in console what?
12:10<sterling2>apt-get search??? sun
12:10<avu>I already told you.
12:10<avu>18:10 < avu> so do aptitude search sun and it'll show you all the options

12:12-!-Swissgent [] has joined #debian
12:12<sterling2>that make sense, but it means they are compatible to older architectures, i.e. if I install a ...-i586 on a "i386" architecture?
12:13<avu>well, i386 is the name of the whole architecture
12:13<sterling2>yes, I know
12:13<avu>i586 means a specific processor and all that came after it
12:13-!-sysop [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
12:13<avu>so it's still i386
12:14<sterling2>yes, but as you told me, optimized for "later" architectures
12:14<avu>it'll just not run on older i386 CPUs
12:14<sterling2>that means something other

12:21<avu>for example
12:22<sterling2>if I have two in my reference list, it doesn't matter?
12:22<avu>no idea what you mean by 'reference list'
12:23<sterling2>in my file /etc/apt/sources.list are probably two entries
12:23<sterling2>this means, it checks from both sites
12:23<avu>yes, it does

12:23<sterling2>and http://ftp.tu-chem...
12:24<avu>sterling2, paste your whole source.list to a pastebin if you want comments on its correctnes
12:25<sterling2>I would, but I have to leave, but will keep in the channel and will be back later
12:25<sterling2>thanks for your help

12:26<Aleric>see topic
12:26<sterling2>okay, will have a look on it
12:27<kop>themill: As noted, I've wacked up a persistent usb-to-serial udev rule writer. However I find it does not work and I figure I'll be switching to symlinks. What I've not worked out is what the symlink names should be. (IMO the ttyUSB devices are a tease because if you use them you don't know what you're really plugged into.)
12:27<Aleric>/msg dpkg pastebin
12:27<themill>kop: yeah, I saw your email -- thanks. Sounds like you're getting there :)
12:27<kop>themill : Any opinion? I'm thinking I'd like /dev/ttyUSB/vendorid/productid/serialnumber/port device paths, rather than use - between the name components.
12:30<kop>themill : (I'll also be asking why my writer does not work. It seems that the 'NAME=="?*"' test always fails, even though I set NAME in earlier udev rules. I know I set NAME because if I set a symlink in the same rule the symlink is created.)
12:30<themill>kop: tree structure sounds a lot more like what people would be used to from other subsystems.

12:34<ptr>So, I'm trying to mount an ntfs filesystem using either ntfs or ntfs-3g, in such a way that only one user has access to its contents.
12:34<kop>themill : The thing that's appealing about persistent ttyUSB names (the approach I'm probably abandoning) is that it works nicely if you want to, e.g., use a different name and have a device like "palm" for a palm pilot.
12:35<ptr>mount -o uid=xyzzx,dmask=077,umask=177 doesn't seem to have any effect; the files are listed as having the right permissions, but other users can access them anyway.
12:35<ptr>how do I fix this?
12:35<kop>ptr: One way is to mount it inside a directory that only one user can traverse.
12:35<ptr>Is that the only option?

12:38<fxiny>shut ? hmmm
12:39<themill>kop: anything that is reproducible across plugins and reboots will be fine. If they just stay as /dev/ttyUSBX with symlinks back to them, there's nothing wrong with that at all. That would probably be preferable, in fact.
12:39<kop>themill : That's what I plan.
12:41<Laeborg>Starting ftp server: proftpd - Fatal: unknown configuration directive 'AllowForeingAddress' on line 113 of '/etc/proftpd/proftpd.conf'
12:41<cahoot>typo in file or only in channel?
12:41<kop>themill : But I'd like (to at least know) how to also create "reasonable" symlinks like "/dev/palm" that are persistent. I think maybe the only way is with a rule writer as happens with z25_persistent-*.rules. The rule writer appoach is klugey.

12:42-!-ernesto [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
12:44<kop>themill : The good thing about 'reasonable' names, like cdrom0, is that programs always know what the name is. Once you start throwing serial numbers into the mix then nothing is 'plug and play' any more -- the user always has to intervene and supply the device name. (I suppose the application could be clever and traverse a tree, but what a pain.)
12:44<kop>themill : For me, I don't care. But I'd like a "plan for the future" anyhow.
12:45<themill>kop: Now you're pushing the bounds of what I've ever looked at a bit... But yes, I suspect you're going to need a rule writer approach to give persistent "short names" to devices like that. But to come up with reasonable device names automatically is going to be difficult. You need to know what device IDs etc are going to be used by what types of devices in advance.
12:46<kop>themill : I should probably let the future take care of itself. I've enough work as it is. :-P
12:46<themill>Yeah, as long as you don't box it into a tight corner, it will be fine later
12:47<kop>themill : I was thinking of basing the device names off the driver name, as a first try anyhow....
12:47<Laeborg>any ways to download data from my server without usign ftp ?
12:47<kop>Laeborg : scp
12:47<themill>kop: yeah, plausible.

12:59<themill>kop: one thing at a time indeed. The general rule for getting anything into big projects like udev is to start by sending a small patch as soon as you can that offers a small improvement in functionality while showing potential to add more. Then start sending more complicated stuff. No-one likes getting a big lump of stuff all at once, particularly if they want to disagree with something that was done much earlier in the development.
13:00<themill>kop: (this is one of the reasons why ext4 is in the kernel and reiser4 is not...)

14:09<twinsen>avu, but if I run wc -c, everytime it receives a line feed, it prints to stdout a value
14:09<avu>not4u, (a sound server would solve the problem too of course, but it would be overkill if the only thing you want is have alsa accept input from more than one pogram at a time)
14:09<not4u>i think i already have dmix installed.
14:09<twinsen>not after i send EOF (ctrl +d)
14:09<avu>not4u, dmix is part of alsa
14:10<avu>twinsen, no it doesn't?
14:10<not4u>'s not set up to do what you are suggesting. how can i configure it?
14:10<avu>twinsen, that would make no sense at all
14:10<mase>not4u but the overhead of a soundserver is quite tollerable...

14:11<avu>twinsen, it didn't do that there either.
14:12<twinsen>avu, yes it doesn't make any sense
14:12<not4u>mase: have a music app running and start a game at the same time
14:12<not4u>just an example ^^
14:13<amadeo>Is the firefox/iceweasel in Sid still not the final release?
14:13<avu>amadeo, it is
14:13<twinsen>same for this: nc -l -p 2000 <pipe | tee -a inflow.log | perl -ne 'print "$_\n";' | tee -a outflow
14:13<amadeo>It's version is 3.0~rc2-2
14:13<avu>amadeo, same thing
14:13<avu>amadeo, there were no linux affecting changes from rc2 to release
14:13<twinsen>any suggestion about how to make it work with perl?
14:13<amadeo>I've thought the rc2 stands for release canidate
14:13<avu>amadeo, it does
14:13<amadeo>i see
14:13<mase>not4u that may be a problem; while playing music via soundserver (esd on gnome, arts/pulseaudio for kde) is no problem, some older games uses alsa directly, causing alsa to be blocked for the soundserver
14:14<avu>amadeo, but as I said, there were no changes
14:14<twinsen>I tried also with a script, based on a while ( <> ) { ... print ... }
14:14<avu>amadeo, (only a OSX only fix)
14:14<mase>not4u what game for example?
14:14<amadeo>it's because i've got a problem with the tabkit extension

14:14<mase>not4u there is an solution with pulseaudio, but it is not "really" easy
14:14<not4u>yeah. i'm already having a problem getting sound on the game without running another sound app. wolfenstein enemy territory. but i cant play a video and have music running at the same time
14:15<avu>twinsen, maybe buffering hits you there, try flushing or using one of those magic perl variables to turn on autoflush
14:15<amadeo>i thought it might be due to firefox not beeing the final version...
14:16<mase>not4u there is a plugin for the alsa-libraries, causing the alsa-output not to be played throug alsa directly but throug pulseaudio
14:16<avu>twinsen, $| it is
14:16<avu>twinsen, set it to 1
14:16<mase>not4u so every application is playing sound with pulsaudio, wich mixes the,
14:16-!-Alam_Linux [] has joined #debian
14:16<avu>twinsen, (in BEGIN if you use -ne)
14:17<not4u>so i need to install pulseaudio as well as the alsa plugin?
14:17<mase>not4u there are easier "older" ways. what desktop-environment are you using?
14:17<twinsen>avu, thanks
14:17<not4u>do you know the name of the plugin?
14:17<twinsen>avu, it works great now
14:17<avu>not4u, what happened to just using dmix?
14:17<mase>not4u mom
14:17<twinsen> nc -l -p 2000 <pipe | tee -a inflow.log | perl -ne '$|=1; print "$_\n";' | tee -a outflow.log >pipe
14:17<avu>twinsen, that sets $| on every line when once would be enough but well :)
14:18<mase>not4u there was a way to start "enemy..." with "artsdsp"; e.g. "artsdsp enemy"
14:18<not4u>avu: just a sec
14:18<twinsen>it was just a quick test, for my needs, I'll have a script file
14:18<twinsen>thanks a lot avu
14:18<mase>not4u that simulates a sound device to the game, causing all sound played through alsa
14:19<avu>mase, arts != alsa
14:19<mase>avu yes, thats the point

16:30<kop>fxiny : Ah. I'm not sure the concept appeals. But I do want to get away from gnome and kde. Anyhow, the wm will likely stress the network more than the display, maybe.
16:30<badiane>well that's one way

17:07<badiane>alex: let's just say that there is a ton of stuff to learn and one major roadblock is "windows" mentality
17:08<Alex>Now that I have extracted (which I did in the root) is it installed or do I likely have to call it's ./configure scripts??? I would like to move it to another directory before I begin attempting to compile my PHP scripts.
17:08<kop>Alex: The reference manual at is good, the basic commands chapter. Also /msg dpkg grounding
17:08<Guest3608>i start to take drugs now ^^
17:09<badiane>alex: are you running as root or you mean in the root of your filesystem?
17:09<kop>Alex, it un-tarred in your current directory. The next step is to read the INSTALL file. (This is why apt is good, and install from source not so good.)
17:09<Alex>Both :P
17:10<badiane>alex: you should run most of the time as yourself and use, in a controlled way, sudo for superuser stuff.
17:10<Alex>It's a local machine behind a NAT router so I don't really concern myself about logging in as root here at home
17:10<Alex>it saves me the trouble of having to su back and forth during rapid development
17:10<amphi>Alex: not doing stuff as root is to protect the machine from _you_ ;(
17:11<amphi>er, ;)
17:11<kop>Wnen it comes to stuff that's not a debian package, you're kinda-sorta on your own and have to rtfm to get the stuff installed and working.

17:12<badiane>alex: since you didn't check the integrity of the file, no keys and so forth. So as root you may install a something which is bad for your system.
17:12<badiane>alex: just put yourself in sudo

17:16<badiane>sorry folks for the bad paste
17:17<kop>badiane : IMO Alien is a bad idea. If it's not part of debian you can't trust it. You're just asking to install something that borks the system. The whole point of having a distro is that the distro does all the system's integeration and makes sure everything works with everything. Without that your system turns to muck in a few years, just like MS products.
17:17<badiane>kop: true but as long as the package has been verified you may build your own
17:18<badiane>kop: for places where then need to build their own packages for system distribution it's the way to go when you have more than 400 systems
17:18<kop>badiane : If you're building your own packages then why not make .debs and have done with it?
17:18<badiane>kop: you would use something like fai, cobbler.

18:17<Alex>I like apt-get...but I also knew I wanted to try and install and configure from sources manually...which is why I am trying that now...
18:17<Alex>One question: When installing from sources...when I download the bzip or gz file and extract, is it usually the same process to install and confiigure:
18:17<Alex>1) ./configure
18:17<Alex>2) make
18:17<Alex>3) make install
18:17<Alex>Are these steps standardiezed at least so I can assume this will work for any project under Debian (or other distros even?)
18:18<suiside>Alex: you'll have a nightmare mixing packages installed directly from source and packages installed through apt, atleast learn ho wto build proper deb-packages and install them instead
18:18<dpkg>A simple packaging walkthrough can be found by (as root) "apt-get install maint-guide" and then (as user) www-browser /usr/share/doc/maint-guide/maint-guide.en.html/index.html" (or online). Also ask me about <nmg>. 'Mg' is also the chemical symbol for magnesium, or may mean Madagascar.
18:19<avu>Alex, nothing to do with debian, if you're compiling upstream sources yourself, you have to follow the upstream procedure
18:19<Alex>Eventually I will...right now I just want this Roadsend compiler installed and working so I can play with compiling my PHP applications...
18:19<amphi>Alex: reading README and/or INSTALL is rewarding, if they exist
18:19<avu>Alex, many open source programs use autotools and most of them are compiled/installed using ./configure && make && make install, but in any case, you should read the project's documentation

18:20<avu>Alex, but, as I already said and as has been pointed out to you by others, you really shouldn't just install from source, bypassing the package management system

18:21<Alex>So how do I check whether apt-get supports a certain version of a package? For instance bigloo when I installed using apt-get install bigloo installed version 2.9 something and Roadsend required 3.0c or above...which is why I downloaded and decided to install from source
18:21<Alex>I updated my database using apt-get update first too...if that helps?
18:21<avu>Alex, I already told you about, which is the first source to look for newer versions for stable

18:26<Alex>Wow compiling takes forever... :P maybe I should just just check If when I'm finsihed compiling and I call make clean does that remove the binaries or just source???
18:27-!-Linux___ [~lol@] has quit [Quit: Sto andando via]
18:27<avu>Alex, make clean only cleans up the working directory
18:27<Nemoder>lontra-kde4: it says it supports SSE2 and SSE3 so my guess would be 686
18:27<avu>Alex, but until you did 'make install', nothing outside the working directory has been touched
18:27<lontra-kde4>Nemoder: thanks
18:27-!-lontra-kde4 [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
18:27<avu>Alex, only the last step, make install, installs anything on the system
18:29-!-aimtrainer [] has joined #debian
18:29<suiside>Alex: as long as you have a complete toolchain the make commands will work on virtually any GNU/linux system as long as a Makefile is provided with source (keep in mind that there are other buildsystem apart from make, but make has become the GNU standard), the configure script however is up to the project maintaner and especially with svn versions autoconfigure tools are often used, so no the process you mentioned will not work ...
18:29<suiside>... for every project out there. And really, take heed to the advice to build proper debs in the first place, you'll regret it later if you don't.
18:30-!-WvdAkker [] has joined #debian
18:31<Alex>make just builds the sources and binaries? make install actually places the binaries in proper places and configures the system...Gotcha!!! make clean will do the trick then...

22:22<jordan>If your system doesnt already have glext.h, then you will need to get it before compiling WINE. I have made a copy available here, download it and put it in "/usr/X11R6/include/GL/". WINE will not compile with OpenGL support without this file.
22:22<jordan>Now to compile, first configure wine. Go into /usr/src/wine and:

22:24<amphi>scatterp: you're on testing?
22:25<path>if I put 'stable' instead of etch, is the same thing ?
22:25<amphi>it is at the moment
22:25<amphi>but it won't be when lenny becomes stable
22:26<path>so I should avoid '*stable´ and always write the codename right?
22:26<matt__>nice 1 vlc installed
22:27<matt__>thx guys, cant believe i forgot to rewrite sources
22:27<dick22>you welcome
22:27<amphi>yes, then you won't have curiosities occuring after the next stable release
22:27<path>read about lenny current goals it sounds interesting
22:28<path>was playing around with dash but now it seems to be official
22:28<path>marvin_, marsbiker,
22:28<dick22>has anybody experience with linux+blueray-dvd???
22:29<path> thats the link marvin_
22:29<scatterp>so can any one tell me the opengl package for debian ?

23:13<matt__>hey guys linux noob need some help
23:14<matt__>i have to use ndiswrapper to load my realtek wireless card
23:14<matt__>but if i reboot, i lose the connction
23:14-!-alanhaggai [alanhaggai@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
23:14<matt__>and i have to modprobe ndiswrapper to get it back
23:15<matt__>how can i make this persistant?
23:15<gsimmons>matt__: Add "ndiswrapper" to /etc/modules.
23:16<matt__>that a file or folder? cos neither exist
23:16<matt__>w8 scratch that
23:16<matt__>found it
23:17<matt__>and i just write ndiswrapper
23:17<matt__>no "modprobe"?
23:17<gsimmons>matt__: Only the name of the module is required.
23:18<matt__>ok, second part of the question: how soon during boot will this kick in? ideally, it would kick in before my dhcp and other wireless settings do
23:19-!-Guest3608 [~martin@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
23:21<matt__>guess i can test that tho. finally, i have an ethernet connection also on this laptop, but i cant have it persistently disabled (it is reenabled after reboot). this stops my browser from using wlan0. can i either change the priority of connections, or stop eth0 from activating?
23:22<gsimmons>matt__: The module will be loaded prior to interfaces within /etc/network/interfaces being raised (if configured to do so).
23:22<gsimmons>matt__: man interfaces
23:24-!-snogglethorpe [] has joined #debian
23:24<matt__>and on disabling eth0 permanently?
23:24<not4u>so i ran a nmap scan on my system to see what it said. i got the same ports open with my firewall up as when i have my firewall disabled. what kind of extra security is my firewall providing for me?

23:45<kuber>Any tips on where to go from here to figure out what the heck is listening?
