00:18<ameyer>qq: it could be, depending on how much other stuff antinul is running on that box
00:18<ameyer>like, if it's also used as a desktop, it could actually be a problem
00:19<qq>yes , sure ... other
00:19<antinul>Ah, just my crappy website
00:19<antinul>And the Gui system
00:20<antinul>well ive tried most of the day and gotten nowhere
00:20<antinul>so im going to bed
00:21<ameyer>yeah, gnome can be a bit of a pig
00:22<ameyer>probably not as bad as kde4, though

00:22<qq>with gnome full
00:23<Golfgeo>That an historic cpu :-P
00:23<ameyer>not to mention stuff like Firefox^WIceweasel
00:23<ameyer>qq: how much RAM?
00:24<ameyer>(RAM tends to be the limiting factor for things like that)
00:24<qq> Memory 123.6/186.5MB

00:27<ameyer>yay KDE4 bloatyness
00:27<Golfgeo>Got a problem, I have a wlan card Intel thingy and there seems to be a command that I am missing: ip Anyone any idea in what package it is located?

00:31-!-foka_ is now known as foka
00:31<Golfgeo>ameyer, no it isn't that. It pertains to the wlan or wifi stuff
00:32<qq>ameyer: right now Memory 126.3/186.5MB with Iceweasel running
00:32<ameyer>qq: I've noticed Iceweasel tends to use more RAM on systems with more RAM
00:32<qq>+ epiphany + vlc + ...
00:33<qq>not here
00:33<Golfgeo>Iceweasel can eat up to 300 MB (on XP I believe) and then it will level off
00:34-!-murth [] has quit [Quit: Ex-Chat]
00:34<ameyer>Iceweasel works fine on my other laptop (128 MB of RAM), yet likes to eat hundreds of MB of RAM on this (1 GB of RAM)

00:39<ozatomic>how can i check if my kernal has been configure for large amounts fo memory

00:39-!-AbsintheSyringe3 [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:40<ozatomic>it has 2gb ram atm and i got another 2 to put it and i wont to check if i'll ened to recompile the kernel?
00:41<ameyer>IIRC the limits for the various options are 1 GB and 4 GB
00:41<dondelelcaro>ozatomic: if you're using the -686 kernels, it's fine.
00:41-!-emachado [~emachado@] has quit [Quit: quit]
00:42<ameyer>but that 4 GB includes various memory addresses for things like graphics cards, so it's really closer to 3 GB in practice
00:43<qq>check CONFIG_HIGHMEM4G=y in kernel config
00:43-!-Gekz [] has quit [Quit: leaving]
00:43<ameyer>It'd be similar to the 32 bit Windows limit which is apparently 3.3 GB or so in practice
00:44-!-Holborn [] has joined #debian
00:45-!-stonescenter [~stonescen@] has joined #debian
00:46<qq>ameyer: i read somewhere that in linux is 3.5 BG
00:47<qq>in any case greater then in win
00:47<ameyer>shrug, I've never had more than 1 GB to deal with
00:47<qq>me to ...
00:48<ameyer>and only Xandros is that stupid\

00:49-!-taodp [] has joined #debian
00:50-!-Gekz [] has joined #debian
00:50<ameyer>I can understand not activating the 4 GB highmem option, as there's apparently a bit of overhead

00:53-!-Lethalman [] has joined #debian
00:53-!-jscinoz [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
00:54<qq>seems (4 GB highmem) is better on 64 than 32
00:54<qq> better used*
00:55<ameyer>or whatever the option that requires nasty PAE hacks is
00:55-!-taodp [] has quit [Quit: taodp]
00:55-!-jm_ [] has joined #debian
00:56-!-AbsintheSyringe3 [] has joined #debian
00:57-!-taodp [] has joined #debian
00:57<peterS>ameyer: nasty PAE hacks would be HIGHMEM_64G
00:57<peterS>but yeah, at some point if you can afford that many GB of RAM, you can afford a 64-bit CPU
00:57<qq>i don't recall PAE is only in xen ?
00:58<peterS>PAE is a compile option in all kernels, but I don't think the normal Debian kernels have it enabled
00:58<peterS>well by "all" of course I mean 32-bit i386
00:58<qq>apparently no , ok
00:58<ameyer>you'd probably be better off losing the better part of a GB of RAM than using the PAE hacks
01:00<jm_>didn't Linus say something along the lines of "4G is OK, everything beyond that I don't care much about"?
01:01-!-omer [] has joined #debian
01:01<peterS>don't know about that - I do remember when the nasty PAE hacks were first being contemplated, Linus said that sort of thing would never be supported in Linux. same argument as today, really - if you can afford that much RAM you can afford a 64-bit CPU
01:02-!-mode/#debian [+l 326] by debhelper
01:02<peterS>of course the price of both has come down rather a lot since 2001
01:02<peterS>back then it meant buying an alpha or an ultrasparc. now it means, well, buying any new computer (:
01:03<jm_>heh yeah I paid < 70EUR for 4G in april (ok that's not server RAM, but still)

01:10<ameyer>peterS: not so much
01:10<ameyer>00:03 < peterS> back then it meant buying an alpha or an ultrasparc. now it means, well, buying any new computer (:
01:10<ameyer>there are still computers with 32 bit processors
01:11<ameyer>but for desktop use, I imagine that >4GB of RAM is overkill
01:11<peterS>yeah and their motherboards usually have trouble accommodating 4 GB of RAM
01:11-!-AbsintheSyringe3 [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
01:11<ameyer>heck, probably >3 GB

01:40<jake>k i comented out imps2 and added one with protocol auto

01:41<superlinux>then reload X
01:41-!-streuner__ [] has quit [Quit: Verlassend]
01:41<jake>by /etc/init.rd/gdm restart?
01:41<superlinux>i think u can do change the nv to nvidia by hand
01:42<jake>ok so after that nv to nvidia i'll do a restart
01:42<qq586>jake, not having another mouse ?
01:42<jake>i have a converter
01:42<jake>but prefer usb
01:42<qq586>for test

02:06<jm_>qq: yeah he is not following what people told him so he made a mess
02:06<jake>i dunno man ive tried various things people have told me here
02:06<Nemoder>I would recommend using nvidia's uninstall option and then reinstalling with m-a

07:27<jm_>so get that and run dpkg-source -x ..., build it and install it

07:50<Nemoder>when you issue a logout it closes the interface and terminates all processes, i'm guessing there was a process that locked up and didn't close down

08:58<weasel>no idea where you get your 30gb from, 55 is more like it
08:59<nicoRW>so the Konqueror way of calculating that size may be buggy?

16:03<petemc>norbert_: googling for truecrypt debian package shows lots of hits

16:16<mtnman>Core@Duo i'm not here to look up manpages for you and spoon feed you the options. don't be lazy
16:16<Core2Duo>Dark-PyRo: Would it remove them from the old group they were in?
16:16<Dark-PyRo>I don't think it does?

16:16<avu>Dark-PyRo, man 5 group, man 5 passwd
16:17<avu>Core2Duo, ^
16:17<norbert_>Core2Duo: just edit /etc/group, remove the user's name everywhere you don't want it
16:17<norbert_>Core2Duo: that's a quick fix
16:17<norbert_>Core2Duo: if you want to know more, read all the man pages of the world
16:17<avu>norbert_, well, looks like he wants to change the user's primary group
16:17<Core2Duo>mntman: I just need help from those who have used the command b4. I was in yo position, I would give u the command if I had previously successfully used it. That should be the purpose for an irc channel, other wise we don;t need to be here if all we get as solutions are "Check with Google, read the manpages".
16:17<mtnman>groups user will tell you all the groups the user is currently a member of

16:19<avu>good IRC channels help you help yourself
16:19<norbert_>not everybody wants to become a sysop, some people just want to use their machine
16:19<avu>they point you to the right manpages to read
16:19<mtnman>core2duo this channel is not meant to be a replacement for reading docs, but a supplement to it.
16:19<dpkg>[rtfm] Read The Fucking Manual. If you want to ask a question about foo, please read man foo; before asking. If there isn't a manpage about foo, use apropos to find one. Reading manuals helps us help you. [You might try info foo as well.]
16:19<Core2Duo>thank you mtnman:
16:20<mtnman>norbert_ reading docs is part of using debian. else you could try ubuntu or something else.
16:20<maxb__>reading docs is part of using a computer
16:20<avu>reading docs is part of using any type of complicated device efficiently and without pissing the "experts" in your reach off really
16:21<norbert_>if a user has to read docs, the application or system has failed
16:21<kevbo>Reading docs is helpful for any form of Unix/Linux, even Ubuntu :-)
16:21<Core2Duo>you sound human, cursing dpkg, thanks for the tip. The word "fucking" has become such a cliche, thanc to that. ;)
16:21<Dark-PyRo>Yes but surely when people ask question in the IRC channel, it may be a sign of certain docs not being so effective.

16:24<norbert_>it's ready for geeks
16:24<Dark-PyRo>Is computer security ever going to be 'ready' for users?
16:24<norbert_>sure, when it's installed by default
16:24<petemc>filevault in osx is fairly easy to use

16:55<Core2Duo>I used some instruction from howtoforge to create chrooted users, unfortunately the users are chrooted in to the same folder. They canot get out, but they can see each other. How do I lock them one folder more so they are locked into their own folders?

17:08<akaladis>at all
17:08<Hideo>please tell me you also used basic root password for ssh so I can crack your box
17:08<LieZ^>lucky i havent had any fatal errors then
17:08<akaladis>to change the user... just type login

17:11<fxiny>that's the only thing you got right
17:11-!-cesc [] has quit []
17:11<akaladis>you do need to be root to install thing (outside of your home of course)
17:11<Hideo>to install and configure services you need to be root
17:12<LieZ^>oh ye so basically the only thing i done wrong was running rtorrent as root?
17:12<Hideo>however to run unimportant things like rtorrent, you don't need root
17:12<akaladis>but running an irc client or a bittorrent client as root is just asking for trouble
17:12<Hideo>LieZ^: yes
17:12<LieZ^>ahh thanks
17:12<LieZ^>lol im on a totally different machine running irc
17:12<akaladis>just an example :)
17:13<maxb__>To put it another way, never be root just to *use* a computer, only be root to make systemwide changes to it

Can anyone help me please?

21:58<newsense>i got debian

21:58<mes>for gnash i mean
21:58<newsense>if i ran gnome i would accept them

22:01<mes>i could be wrong
22:01<mes>just apt-get remove if not
22:01<newsense>it is :(
22:02<newsense>guess ill have to compile from source

22:02<mes>and it has klash as a dependancy
22:03<mes>look at that one
22:03<newsense>but debian is doing what theyre doing to support open source so i guess ill have to deaL WITH IT

22:03<newsense>i tried it
22:03<newsense>im a debian user though
22:03<mes>i know what you mean

23:31<kop>I want the agp as my console, but it's got a higher PCI slot number.
23:31<Synz>kop: so, one more time. what exactly is the problem you're facing?
23:31<mes>so Synz is right
23:31-!-vortex [] has joined #debian
23:31<kop>mes: Can't move the agp card to a pci slot.
23:31<mes>the PCI are getting detected before the AGP
23:32-!-mode/#debian [+l 324] by debhelper
23:32<mes>yeah, i didn't realize one was AGP
23:32<kop>Synz : I want to be able to specify which card is used for the console. The AGP card is newest. I want to use that.
23:32-!-xjc [~Linux@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
23:32<Synz>kop: why do you want to make it the main? console performance doesn't mean much
23:33-!-taodp [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
23:33<kop>Synz : There's no compelling reason. It has to do with what monitor is situated where, and used for what.
23:33<Synz>ahh ok
23:33<Synz>let me look at some things real quick
23:34-!-aaaaaaa [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
23:34<kop>Synz : Mostly it's because I'm mucking about with what's used for what with X. And if I lose a card I want to know how to use what's left for whatever I need most.
23:34<mes>so you can have different tty's on different screens? or are you doing something else
23:35-!-alephnull_____ [~alok@] has joined #debian
23:35<kop>mes: Mostly, I want the console on one screen. That screen and another will be xinerama and use xdmcp to connect to the backend box used for an X client. The 3rd screen will run a copy machine, in effect, but will also connect to the backend box to run xsane.
23:35<Synz>kop: that partially made sense :-)
23:35-!-p_quarles [] has joined #debian
23:35<Synz>ok, that makes more sense

23:35<kop>Thin client stuff.
23:36<mes>ah. sounds cool
23:36-!-aaaaaaa [] has joined #debian
23:36<kop>It's a 300MHz celeron, without a fan. I then put all the chunky boxes in the basement.
23:36<mes>i've never needed to do something like that
23:37<kop>I get silence, and low heat, out of the deal.
23:37<mes>very desirable
23:37<mes>just have to make sure the basement doesn't flood >.<
23:37<Synz>kop: are you running devfs?
23:37<kop>I've already tested the xdmcp stuff. Now I've got the cards in place and need to configure everything for real and see if the hardware is up to the job.
23:37-!-p_quarles [] has joined #debian
23:37<kop>Synz : etch, 2.6.18. udev
23:38-!-alephnull____ [~alok@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
23:38<Synz>kop: ok, give me a min to do some research. defvs and udev are pretty new to me
23:38<gawz>I found out hat pdumpfs may not work on samba directories. its kind of simple

23:39<kop>It's actually pretty cool. You can setup cups to do all the work and just spool on the thin client. xsane/saned takes care of putting the graphic processing on the X client. And the X client does a lot of the font stuff. Dunno how much eyecandy is done on the X client, but I'm hopeing that happens there too.
23:40<Synz>gawz: grats on finding that :-)
23:40<mes>yeah... sounds like it'd be fun to setup and get working
23:40<kop>gawz : Why not just mount everything and use cp. Or use rsync, either with or without samba. I think rsync is cross platform.
23:40<Synz>kop: without me looking up what those binaries you said do, what are you doing?
23:41<mes>i need to learn more *nix before i could do much of that... sadly, i'm rather young still and started my life on windows :/
23:41<kop>Synz : Total thin client. As much processing in the basement as possible. Printing, scanning, graphics, etc.
23:41<Synz>mes: a lot of us have
23:41<Synz>kop: sweet
23:41<kop>Synz : Clearly, the printers, scanners, screens, etc all need to be on the desk.
23:41<Synz>I was a "windows guy" for many years, then went to GNU for quite a few years, then back to windows just to game
23:42<Synz>kop: ok, so you got multiple heads in different rooms?
23:42<Synz>nvm that, dumb question and it sounds wrong
23:42<Synz>physical connection
23:42<mes>yeah, i'm really trying as hard as i can to ditch windows completely and have managed to wipe windows from my computers (don't game enough)
23:42<kop>Synz : All plugged into one box. I want one head just for a copy machine to make the wife happy there's no login or anything.
23:42<mes>sounds like he's running it over network
23:42<Synz>mes: if you don't game, GNU will do you well
23:43<mes>yeah, that and OpenBSD :D which i've gotten used to so far as setting up for basic development and desktop use
23:43<Synz>kop: who the hell likes to keep the wife happy? where are you from? :-)
23:43<mes>happy wife == happy husband
23:44<dpkg>Please keep the discussions in #debian on-topic (i.e., Debian support), or return to the topic after a short while. #debian-offtopic is the place for longer off-topic discussions.
23:44<kop>Somehow I think all that framebuffer stuff for the console is old news, and there's another way to do things.
23:45<Synz>yeah, we need to look at udev docs
23:45<Synz>are you familiar with the traditional /dev directory?
23:46<kop>Synz : What makes you think udev? (I just read lots of udev stuff and poked about writing rules.) Do you think udev assigns the console?
23:46-!-freealan [] has joined #debian
23:46<kop>Synz : Sorta. I know it got way too full.
23:46-!-zjason [~changcs@] has joined #debian
23:46<Synz>well, udev is like dev, but udev is dynamic rather than static
23:47<Synz>and the /dev devices are particular to your hardware and their virtual software assignments
23:47<Synz>so if PCI devices are detected first, they'll get assigned a /dev entry in them before the AGP card does
23:48<kop>Synz : Yeah. I know all that. Whatdayathink links.conf does?
23:48<kop>Synz : Maybe the magic is there?
23:49<Synz>kop: this sounds like the same way I had to get eth0 assigned as the primary interface when udev was detecting another hardware device first
23:49<kop>Synz : That's the wacko z25_persistent_net.rules file, which is written by another udev rule (with helper).
23:50<Synz>I have two NICs built-in to my PC motherboard. when udev came up, half of the time, it'd assign eth0 to one hardware device, and half of the time to the other hardware device
23:50<kop>Synz : Looks like links.conf makes the console device. What associates the /dev device numbers with a hardwar graphic cards.
23:50<mes>that'd suck for a firewall
23:50<Synz>I had to tell it that one took precedence over the other, and always assign one specific hardware NIC to eth0
23:51<Synz>kop: let me look, one min
23:51<kop>Synz : That's what /etc/udev/rules.d/z45_persistent-net-generator.rules is supposed to do for you, write the z25_* rule to keep eth0 consistent.

23:52<kop>Synz : You must not have been running stable.
23:52<Synz>we need to find the same way to have it assign your particular video card as primary
23:52-!-Owner [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
23:52<Synz>kop: it's been a while since I've ran GNU as m y main OS
23:52<Synz>too many games
23:53<kop>Synz : But I don't see a rule associating hardware with /dev/console. Just permissions. (at a quick glance)
23:53<Synz>I still have a great understanding of it, it just takes time to find a solution

23:56-!-[marfusha] [~marfusha]] has joined #debian
23:57<Synz>based on that, it looks like you can hack something together
23:57<kop>Synz : I was trying udevinfo, but couldn'd find the /sys/ path. I'll take a look. How did you find it?
23:57-!-Politics [] has joined #debian
23:57<Synz>googled for /dev/console
23:57<Synz>top link
23:58<Synz>I tried other search criteria first but they found the same X11 BS you found
23:58<kop>Synz : That's an aix doc page. I'm suspicious of it's applicability.
23:59<Synz>it should be compatible
