00:00<enouf>Deepy: old or new hardware?
00:00<Deepy>Quite new, etch netbooted has worked on it before though
00:00<enouf>Architecture is?
00:01<enouf>Deepy: run "check cd integrity" choice
00:02<Deepy>It's netboot
00:02<enouf>oh, you're also on freenode
00:02<Deepy>Yes, and I usually end up crying whenver I ask them for help :p
00:02<enouf>oh, not netinstaller?
00:02<enouf>you need an ISO also, IINM
00:02<Deepy>I was hoping it would be netinstaller over PXE
00:05<eddieB>i need some help with vsftpd/pure-ftp. i can download from my ftp server via ftp client. but i cannot download via download manager. does anyone know how to correct this?
00:06<Deepy>Does your download manager support FTP?
00:10<Deepy>ALT+F4 did nothing

00:25<T_X>may I ask questions about debian-unofficial here :D?
00:26-!-M0ffe [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:27<T_X>I added the url to apt's sources.list and imported the key with apt-key but apt/aptitude complain about a missing key
00:28-!-esop [] has joined #debian
00:29<Deepy>enouf, still same problems with this
00:29<enouf>Deepy: did you follow the installation guide?
00:29<Deepy>There's a installation guide?
00:30<enouf>T_X: that site has a FAQ that tells you what to do
00:30<enouf>oh .. yeah, i remember now
00:30<dpkg>I heard "ig" is Installation Guide...see for Etch 4.0 stable, or for now oldstable Sarge (3.1). Lenny is now the new Testing!
00:31<Deepy>Does that one even cover PXE?
00:32<T_X>here's the line with the error and the output of 'apt-key list':
00:33<T_X>yep, I did the things in the FAQ section (except aptitude install debian-unofficial-archive-keyring cause it couldn't find it)
00:34<Deepy>Running a install suite=etch fb=false then
00:34<Deepy>Woo, it works now :D
00:34<Deepy>Thanks ^^
00:35<enouf>what happened? :-)
00:35<Deepy>The installer actually booted
00:35<Deepy>framebuffer problems?
00:36<Deepy>I gotta begin using automated installs
00:37<Deepy>and like force-feed it with my wireless network drivers
00:37<Deepy>I'm going to run into problems tomorrow when I try to run X

00:39<enouf>T_X: what's the exact error again?
00:39<enouf>Deepy: why?
00:39<Deepy>I don't know, but I plan on finding out tomorrow when I got the system running
00:39<enouf>Deepy: why would you have issue runnuing X?
00:39-!-Euskotar [~euskotar@] has quit []
00:39<Deepy>It'll work fine in 800*600 and 1024*768
00:40-!-M0ffe [] has joined #debian
00:40<Deepy>But with 1280*800 it won't even want to start
00:40<enouf>fb=false only affects console
00:40<Deepy>Oh this is just my guess from previous experience of etch
00:40<T_X>enouf: have a look at the pastebin:
00:40<Deepy>In and outside vmware
00:40<Deepy>craptop yes
00:41<Deepy>common problem?

00:44<Deepy>Oh, well 1280*800 works fine for me
00:44<Deepy>and 1024*768 just looks plain weird with widescreen
00:45<enouf>T_X: first try; apt-get install debian-archive-keyring && apt-key update
00:45-!-_noble- is now known as noble-

00:47<enouf>T_X: and, are you sure you even need the unofficial? whatcha need codecs? "/msg dpkg dmm"
00:47<enouf>T_X: whoops
00:48<enouf>T_X: correction -->> gpg --keyserver --recv-keys 24C52AC3 ; gpg --export 24C52AC3 | sudo apt-key add -
00:49<T_X>enouf: I want to play dvds on my laptop
00:50<enouf>T_X: using etch?
00:50<Deepy>Just getting VLC and mounting the DVD didn't do the trick?
00:50<dpkg>To add the debian-multimedia repository run (as root) # echo "deb etch main" >> /etc/apt/sources.list; aptitude update && aptitude install debian-multimedia-keyring && aptitude update. For an alternative way to load Marillat's archive key, ask me about <apt-key 1F41B907>.
00:50<T_X>nope, sid
00:51<enouf>well, then /msg dpkg dmm as i said

01:53-!-vasi [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
01:54<jm_>i think it's just a matter of specifying repository appropriately, i.e. ssh://...
01:55<xwl>jm_: i got "fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly" Do i need to configure the server side as well?
01:57<jm_>xwl: there should be no server when using ssh other than sshd, did you try -v ?
01:57-!-p_quarles [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
01:57<xwl>jm_: yes, i also thought there should be no server. -v doesn't give any more information..
01:58-!-jegc [~jegc@] has joined #debian
01:58-!-jasonjgw [] has joined #debian
01:58<jm_>xwl: can you run sshd in debug mode there?
02:00<xwl>jm_: er, how to do that?
02:00<eddieB_>jm_: i got vsftpd working but i could only connect from sftp. and i cannot download from my download manager. any idea why?
02:00<jm_>xwl: you run sshd with -D and -d switches
02:00-!-lfeather [] has joined #debian
02:01<jm_>eddieB_: sftp doesn't connect to vsftpd
02:02<jm_>xwl: it would probably be best to keep original sshd running and start a new one on different port and then use that for debugging - so you don't lose connectivity if something unexpected happens
02:02<eddieB_>jm_: someone in the other Debian channel had me do some things and he said even tho i delete pure-ftp it was still running with vsftpd. is there anyway besides purge to completely stop/remove it?
02:02<jm_>eddieB_: run netstat -nap|grep ftp
02:03<jm_>as root
02:03<jasonjgw>Just a quick question: is there an AMD64 version of the bind9-9.5.0P1-2 package available? Looking in the pool directory of I find the i386 version but not the amd64.
02:03-!-lfeather [] has left #debian []
02:03<eddieB_>ttype "run netstat -nap|grep ftp"?
02:04<eddieB_>this is what i get when i type that "-bash: run: command not found"
02:04<jm_>no withou trun :)
02:05<xwl>jm_: ok, i'm trying it..
02:05<jm_>jasonjgw: not yet
02:05<eddieB_>i typed it but i think it just brings me to a directory
02:06<jm_>it doesn't report anything?
02:06<jasonjgw>Thanks. I'm trying to close the recently announced DNS vulnerability on my Sid box.
02:06-!-k1lumin4t1 [sortadi@] has joined #debian
02:06<jm_>how about "netstat -nap|grep 21"
02:07-!-GhostlyDeath|Laptop [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
02:07-!-mike_ [] has joined #debian
02:07<eddieB_>okay. that one worked. want me to pastebin it?
02:07-!-GhostlyDeath|Laptop [] has joined #debian
02:07<jm_>there's a source package for P1-2 so you can build it yourself
02:07<jm_>eddieB_: yes
02:07<jm_>eddieB_: please prefix messages for me with jm_
02:07<mike_>Gnome in Lenny ,,very nice
02:08<jasonjgw>I'll run a build. Thanks.
02:09-!-esop [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
02:09<jm_>eddieB_: right, grep 21 /etc/inetd.conf
02:09<Nemoder>are there any linux tools to extract files from norton ghost (*.GHO/*.GHS) images?
02:09<jm_>eddieB_ and grep ftp /etc/inetd.conf
02:09-!-devil_ is now known as devil
02:10<kingsley>Are there no longer any AMD kernel packages in unstable named "SMP"? ("SMP" is an acronym for symmetric multi-processing.)
02:10<mike_>moin devil ;)
02:10<eddieB_>jm_: pastebin?
02:10<jasonjgw>Regarding the kernel packages, they're smp by default.
02:10-!-zakame [] has joined #debian
02:10<devil>hi mike_
02:10<jm_>eddieB_: how many lines does it show?
02:11<eddieB_>jm_: 4
02:11<jm_>eddieB_: ok you can paste it to me in msg or on pastebin, whichever is easier
02:11<xwl>jm_: i started sshd as: sudo /usr/sbin/sshd -p 12345 -Dd, while, when i try testing 'ssh localhost -p 12345 ', it "Connection to localhost closed." as soon as connected..and the server dies.
02:11<kingsley>jasonjgw: OK, that's convenient. When did the AMD kernels become SMP by default?
02:11<jm_>xwl: but what did sshd say?
02:12<jasonjgw>kingsley, it was some time ago but I can't remember exactly when. I'm running a 2.6.25 kernel here on a 4-way x86_64 box.
02:13<jm_>eddieB_: yeah you still have an entry in inetd for pure-ftpd, what does "dpkg -l '*pure*'" say?
02:13<kingsley>jasonjgw: That's interesting. Have found a satisfactory way to run flash?
02:14<jasonjgw>kingsley, I couldn't care less about running Flash. However, I have Gnash installed just in case someone else using this machine happens to visit a Web site with Flash content.
02:15<kingsley>jasonjgw: Ha ha!
02:15<kingsley>jasonjgw: I think I'd miss youtube's flash videos.
02:15<jm_>xwl: possibly this is casuing it PAM: pam_open_session(): Cannot make/remove an entry for the specified session
02:16*kingsley needs to go...
02:16<jm_>eddieB_: you haven't uninstalled pure-ftpd
02:16<jasonjgw>kingsley, Youtube works with free as in freedom Flash players now, so you should be right without any proprietary Flash player.
02:16<eddieB_>jm_ ill try again. "apt-get --purge remove pure-ftpd" right?
02:16<jm_>eddieB_: apt-get --purge remove pure-ftpd pure-ftpd-common
02:17<kingsley>jasonjgw: Yet another interesting missive. What are "freedom Flash players"?
02:17<kingsley>jasonjgw: gnash?
02:18-!-nike [] has quit [Quit: KVIrc 3.4.0 Virgo]
02:18<eddieB_>jm_: done, sorry
02:18<jasonjgw>kingsley, I'm referring to Gnash and that other one the name of which I've forgotten. They're both under free licences.
02:19<jm_>xwl: actually your log looks fine and it even says Entering interactive session for SSH2. - are you sure it's not your shell exiting?
02:19<kingsley>jasonjgw: OK. Maybe I'll try gnash again. I've gotta go. Thanks for your thoughts.
02:19<jasonjgw>kingsley, It's a pleasure.
02:20-!-morii_ is now known as morii
02:20-!-kingsley [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
02:21<xwl>jm_: yes, i'm sure it's not. i tried several times. the sshd server is
02:21<jm_>xwl: it doesn't look like it's ssh causing it
02:22<jasonjgw>jm_ You've tried ssh -v, right?
02:24<jm_>jasonjgw: he's running sshd with -Dd, but I suppose it's worth using -v with the client too
02:24-!-alanhaggai [alanhaggai@] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
02:24<kevin>try running an alternate shell
02:24<kevin>ssh host "echo I work"
02:25<jm_>xwl: does it work on regular port?
02:25-!-jasonjgw [] has quit [Quit: leaving]
02:26<xwl>jm_: this is client side with -v:
02:26<xwl>jm_: yes.
02:26<xwl>jm_: btw, sshd is running on a Mac OS X .

02:31<jm_>eddieB_: check if it's listening on port 21

02:33<xwl>jm_: hmm, i tried git ssh operations the reverse direction, works out of box. That may imply osx's sshd's problem?
02:33-!-Lethalman [] has joined #debian
02:33<jm_>xwl: that pastebin test was a regular ssh connect, right? not git?
02:34<xwl>jm_: yes.
02:34<xwl>jm_: just `ssh -v ip'
02:34<xwl>and -p 12345
02:35<jm_>xwl: well not sure how to debug it on macos, on Linu or Solaris I'd use strace/truss
02:36<xwl>jm_: it's okay. thanks for the help! anyway, i can git push/pull from os x. :)
02:36<eddieB_>jm_: when i try to connect to ftp via ftp client i get this "OPPS: vsftpd: both local and anonymous access disabled!"
02:37<eddieB_>jm_: i have this in the conf file "#local_enable=YES"
02:38<jm_>eddieB_: remove the #
02:38<eddieB_>jm_: should i remove it from them all? every line starts with #
02:39<jm_>eddieB_: no just for this line #local_enable=YES

02:46<jm_>eddieB_: i can't help you with that - vsftpd itself should work now, perhaps try it locally on the debian box first
02:47<eddieB_>jm_: i don't understand "perhaps try it locally on the debian box first"

04:45<osar>Hi. Is there some way (other then letting wget lose on the debian-security-announce archives) to get my own machine readable local archive of all DSAs?
04:45<jm_>mailing list archive maybe
04:45<osar>I don't see the sometimes offered method of downloading the archives in mbox format there
04:46<jm_>it should be able to send digest messages
04:46<osar>those would be multipart mime messages with one DSA per part?
04:47<superlinux>jm_ did jake get his problem solved?
04:47<osar>how would I get to this 'digest messages'?
04:48<jm_>try sending help to majordomo, I forgot the details

07:21<dpkg>i guess 5% error is d-i stopping at 5%? Boot the installer with `linux debian-installer/allow_unauthenticated=true' or drop to a shell, chroot /target, kill the existing aptitude process and add the latest key, then run aptitude and install what you like. Since <etch> has been released, you should be downloading a released version of the installer from which would not have this problem.

07:29<josnar>Hello, I have a doubt. When configuring my system, I set up it to use Testing branch (you know APT::Default-Release "testing";), my problem is when resolving dependences, apt have to downgrade some packets to 'stable'. My question is: Does it mean that the packet will be assigned 'forever' to the stable branch?
07:29<mordy>now how do i get myself out of this complex install screen and go back to the regular install? i don't know what to answer to all these questions
07:30<jm_>josnar: apt will not downgrade packages
07:31<josnar>sorry.... aptitude
07:31<jm_>same goes for aptitude
07:32<josnar>then.... what was this? :)

07:34<mordy>in the shell
07:34<mordy>from the "Execute a shell" in the installation menu

07:36-!-hesco [~hesco@] has joined #debian
07:37<josnar>no, I just write the line for the default-release in apt.conf... I'am going to configure pinning... with pinning, if a packet is (for example) as unstable, with your default branch as testing, will the 'unstable' packet associated to the unstable version forever or when the packet become testing the system won't upgrade it?
07:37<josnar>phew... apologize for my english.... if I need to repeat, ask me for please...
07:38<mordy>i don't know what "cat /proc/cmdline" is, but i did use "install allow_unauthenticated=true" before i started it up
07:38<qq_>great , hehe

08:01<mordy>i wanted to install a freenx server. i don't know how to use linux at all - so i was just googling around - but that didn't help me much
08:02<jm_>installing freenx is a pain even for someone with more experience
08:02<mordy>since the computer that i'm installing linux on produces so much heat that you can get a heatstroke just from sitting by it, and VNC is sluggish
08:02<mordy>and installing a virtual machine of some sort on my main computer wasn't an option, as this tiny laptop doesn't have enough juice

08:04<weasel>why would you need a gui on a server anyway.
08:04<jm_>sure, you can start GUI apps that way, but you need X server locally

12:33<matth_>guys am I wrong when seeing the defaut name server installed on debian etch is "bind" (i.e ISC Bind 8.4.7) ?

12:34<matth_>i.e some unsupported piece of software since 2006
12:35<witte>matth_: i don't think a name server is installed by default
12:35<wnd>I don't know about default name server, but yes, "bind" package is bind 8.4.7. bind9 will get you 9.3.4.
12:35<matth_>I mean aptitude install bind does install the 8.4.7
12:35<matth_>I've got a problem with that
12:35<wnd>that's correct
12:35<wnd>install bind9 instead
12:36<matth_>why not having bind8 as a separated packages, and have bind symlink to bind9 the most recent and patched version ?
12:36-!-AlphaTwin [] has joined #debian
12:36-!-laurc [] has joined #debian
12:36<Gathond>matth_: debian never has the most recent and patched version, they have whatever got through to stable when it was last released + whatever security patches they have added
12:36<AlphaTwin>Is it possible to burn a CD in another format than ISO9660? EXT3 for example?
12:36<wnd>I'd suspect there has been some major changes between bind 8 and 9, so debian developers decided it would be the best to let the user to deal with transition manually
12:37-!-torrr [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
12:37<Gathond>matth_: debians bind 8.4.7 is very unlikely to be the same as the original one at this stage
12:37<matth_>Gathond: You misinterpret my words
12:38<matth_>Gathond: recent & patched existing in the debian archive
12:38<Gathond>matth_: I do? you propose to just always update the debian package with the most recent upstream version?
12:38<matth_>definitly not.
12:38<matth_>I point out some package naming problem in my opinion
12:39<wnd>AlphaTwin, I'm sure that's possible, but if you're planning to use the cd elsewhere it's probably not very practical
12:39<matth_>and my question to why bind8 is still in the archive actually
12:39-!-Villarroel [~loli@] has joined #debian
12:40<Gathond>matth_: you might have a point in bind9 being a better default
12:40<Gathond>that is not the same as the debian bind8 being unsupported though
12:40<Villarroel>What /etc/cron.daily/apt and aptitude does?
12:40<AlphaTwin>wnd - No, I am aware of that :) I believe it would require the user to manually mount the disc through the Terminal. I am just interested in knowing how to do it - I suppose there is no standard software available that can do that out of the box
12:40<matth_>Gathond: yep two points
12:40<j053f>where can I set the geometry for gnome-terminal (other than a program argument)
12:40<j053f>is there a config file?
12:41<Gathond>I don't know anything about the resoninig for introducing that naming convention, I would assume wnd is right that something changed so it is no longer compatible
12:41<wnd>AlphaTwin, have you tried creating the filesystem with mkfs.ext3 and writing that as a cd-image?
12:42<Gathond>and it might have been judged simpler to introduce a new name to depend on rather than change all the bind dependencies to bind8
12:42<AlphaTwin>wnd, no I haven't tried that yet. How would you suggest I do the burning?
12:42<matth_>Villarroel: reading quickly, seems to (logically) update the cache in order to inform you there are updates hot when you wake up ;)

12:44<wnd>AlphaTwin, I don't really know. personally I've been glad to get rid of cd-rws, and to use dvd+rws instead. somehow I got the impression that dvd+rws can be written even with dd (thanks to growisofs' output). but quite honestly I haven't really looked into it any further.
12:45<Villarroel>matth_: thanks. I don't understand those files.
12:45-!-kbblak [] has joined #debian
12:45<wnd>AlphaTwin, if you're using gnome or such, I'd try naming the file "foo.iso" and trying to right-clicking the file to see if there's an option to burn the image.
12:46<wnd>I remember using cdrdao (command line tool) to write disc images, so personally I'd try that first
12:46<AlphaTwin>wnd, Okay :) I will try to fake it as being an .iso file, and if it doesn't work I will use a DVD and use dd
12:46<AlphaTwin>Okay, thanks :)
12:46<wnd>cdrskin - command line CD/DVD writing tool

12:48<wnd>corky, what do you /really/ want to do?
12:48<Nemoder>corky: xorg
12:48<corky>install X11 and fluxbox
12:49<wnd>I'd just issue "aptitude install fluxbox" and see if the dependencies look ok
12:49<corky>Nemoder: just what i looked for
12:49-!-foka [~foka@] has joined #debian
12:49<wnd>I wouldn't bother installing the x server separately unless that was really required
12:49<wnd>I'm sure fluxbox must depend on it somehow anyway

12:50<wnd>nothing prevents you from running it over ssh

13:05<Gathond>principit0: I had success with 1. setting the bios to emulate a PATA interface and 2. disapling apic lapic , setting generic.ide and irqpoll=0
13:05<Gathond>or something along those lines, the exact arguments are not in my memory at the moment
13:06<Gathond>something like linux noapic nolapic irqpoll=0 ide.generic=generic.ide ... but all the options should be explained under one of the function keys in the initial boot screen of the installer
13:07<principit0>is not about bios boot stuff
13:07<witte>principit0: try a installer with newer kernel
13:07<dpkg>For etch (or sarge) installers with up-to-date kernels, see, or ask me about <etchnhalf>.
13:07<Gathond>principit0: no, its about the installer not detecting the drive after booting right?
13:07<principit0>no is during the instalation
13:08<Gathond>principit0: that is what I meant yes
13:08<principit0>maybe i should try some lenny stuff
13:08<Gathond>principit0: and the steps above solved that for me
13:08<Gathond>the bios step is just to allow the generic ide driver to work
13:09<Gathond>it worked for me using an intel P35 chipset
13:09<principit0>ok i'll try
13:09-!-sebash [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]

13:10<Gathond>principit0: you might need lenny to get a new enough kernel after the installation though

15:01<kaliaz>apt = apt-get
15:01<Hydroxide>kaliaz: no.
15:01<mes>i've never really got the differences between the three really settled
15:01<kaliaz>no frontend
15:01<kaliaz>ah no ?
15:01-!-aox [arianna@] has joined #debian
15:01<Hydroxide>kaliaz: nope. apt is the library that all of them use
15:01<kaliaz>typed apt in bash
15:01<kaliaz>no is a program
15:01-!-aox [arianna@] has left #debian []
15:02<Hydroxide>apt isn't a program.
15:02-!-pid [~lnx@] has quit [Quit: ircII EPIC4-2.6 -- Are we there yet?]
15:02<kaliaz>just a library ?
15:02<Hydroxide>yeah. and apt-get is a frontend provided in the same package as the library
15:02<Hydroxide>but synaptic, apt-get, and aptitude all use apt
15:03<Hydroxide>which, in turn, uses dpkg
15:03<ffws|hathe>Hydroxide: I use sid since years and I can tell you apt-get works best for sid
15:03<kaliaz>mmmm but kpackage use apt-get
15:03<Hydroxide>kaliaz: possibly. I don't know how kpackage works.
15:03<mes>so what exactly is APT?
15:03<ffws|hathe>Hydroxide: and thats not 100% true, synaptic uses other dependency flags then apt-get
15:04<Hydroxide>ffws|hathe: but can you tell me how it works better, and give me an example of a situation where apt-get works better for you than aptitude?
15:04<Hydroxide>ffws|hathe: what do you mean by a dependency flag? apt-get isn't a dependency flag
15:04<Hydroxide>ffws|hathe: and synaptic doesn't use apt-get. it uses apt directly.
15:05<Hydroxide>mes: apt is the common package infrastructure, implemented as a library with associated config files, package databases, etc., which all of debian's package management frontends use
15:05<Hydroxide>mes: including synaptic, apt-get, aptitude, and (possibly by means of calling apt-get) kpackage
15:06<mes>so is it what handles dependency generation for debs so that dpkg can install them?
15:06<ffws|hathe>Hydroxide: aptitude and synaptics wanted to remove my complete system more than one time while apt-get solved the dependecies correct
15:06<Hydroxide>mes: apt, usually. aptitude has its own logic that can sometimes do better
15:07<Hydroxide>ffws|hathe: that doesn't make sense. synaptic just uses apt's logic, and should handle dependencies the exact same way as apt-get
15:07-!-oxymor00n [] has joined #debian
15:07<mes>alright. thanks for the clarification. i've understood the basic principles for a while now, but never really got any of the details
15:07<Hydroxide>ffws|hathe: but, here's an example where aptitude's more advanced logic was helpful to me
15:08<Hydroxide>ffws|hathe: on an machine running unstable, I wanted to try kde4 from experimental
15:08<Hydroxide>ffws|hathe: so I selected the experimental version of kde from aptitude
15:09<Hydroxide>ffws|hathe: it was able to figure out most of what needed to be upgraded, and gave me the flexibility to make a few corrections so that they would all be installed together
15:09<Hydroxide>ffws|hathe: when I decided I wasn't ready to use kde4, I selected the old version of KDE, and aptitude even handled the downgrade well
15:09-!-makke [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
15:09<Hydroxide>ffws|hathe: then, to clear things out, I removed the core kde4 library, and it at first wanted to reinstall it, but I was able to tell it "no, I don't want to do that. find some other way to make things consistent" and it offered to remove the rest of kde4-dependent stuff
15:10<ffws|hathe>Hydroxide: I did exactly that more than once without a problem using apt-get
15:10<Hydroxide>ffws|hathe: if it works for you, great.
15:10<ffws|hathe>Hydroxide: yes, the KDE4 thing on three different machines
15:10<Hydroxide>ffws|hathe: are you talking about the downgrade, though?
15:10<Hydroxide>ffws|hathe: that was the tricky part
15:11<ffws|hathe>Hydroxide: I did the downgrade on two machines
15:11<Hydroxide>ffws|hathe: how did you do it?
15:12<kingsley>Is it possible to tell if an EXT2 file system is "clean" while it's mounted?
15:12<Hydroxide>kingsley: by definition it isn't
15:12<kaliaz>ia use kde4 experimental and is really god ..... without gui from shell with aptitude
15:12<Hydroxide>kingsley: mounted filesystems aren't clean
15:13<Hydroxide>kaliaz: I'm glad you liked kde4. I'll certainly be trying it again.
15:13<ffws|hathe>Hydroxide: by just installing the kdebase lib for KDE3 (I think, it was some weeks ago, but it took not more then 10min including download time for kde3 packages)

15:14<mes>ffws|hathe: i get where you're coming from, but i was just curious as to the features that mattered to you

15:15<mes>i have my own firm beliefs as to what a decent DE is
15:15<mes>and was just curious as to hearing from others. especially since i only have direct contact with one other person who uses *nix based systems, i don't get to discuss this very often
15:15<Hydroxide>ffws|hathe: just installing the kde3 base library doesn't downgrade from kde4
15:15-!-freealan [] has quit [Quit: leaving]
15:16<ffws|hathe>mes: what I like (atm) most on KDE4 is that I can navigate and start programs without the mouse
15:16<Hydroxide>ffws|hathe: if you don't want to continue this, that's fine, but I'm interested in comparing how complex this sort of procedure is. who knows, maybe I'll learn something since I haven't used apt-get regularly in a while :)
15:16<mes>ffws|hathe: o.O?
15:16<Hydroxide>(except for one or two things like apt-get source which aptitude still hasn't implemented)
15:17<ffws|hathe>Hydroxide: I can search my logfiles for the command I used - the thing I can tell you at the moment is that I had no problems by downgrading with apt-get
15:18<kaliaz>me too
15:18-!-ernesto [] has joined #debian
15:18<kingsley>Can any tools other than dumpe2fs, fsck and e2fsck report whether an unmounted EXT2 file system is corrupt?
15:18<kaliaz>i thing not
15:18<kingsley>Or at least whether it's "clean"?
15:19<Hydroxide>ffws|hathe: I'm not doubting that it's possible. It clearly is.
15:19<Hydroxide>ffws|hathe: it's just more annoying to do, especially if you don't like the first suggested way to proceed that apt-get shows you
15:21<Hydroxide>ffws|hathe: for example, let's say you're installing a program that has three packages in its Recommends field. you know you want to install one of them, don't want to install the second one, and want to read the description of the third one to decide if you want to install it
15:21<Hydroxide>ffws|hathe: but you didn't know about these Recommends before you typed "apt-get install the-main-program<enter>"
15:21<ffws|hathe>Hydroxide: of course, you have to learn how to use apt-get, but when thats done it works quite well for sid, and in my opinion mor reliable then others
15:21<Hydroxide>ffws|hathe: or, even if you did.
15:21-!-zevarito [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
15:21<Hydroxide>ffws|hathe: they all use the same backend. they're all equally reliable.
15:22<Hydroxide>ffws|hathe: and they all work
15:22<Hydroxide>ffws|hathe: including apt-get, certainly. it's just more cumbersome.
15:22<ranix>I prefer apt-get
15:23<kaliaz>Hydroxide u right
15:23<kaliaz>is the same thing
15:23<ffws|hathe>Hydroxide: your right about the Suggests/Recommends fields
15:23<kaliaz>apt-get aptitude syanptic
15:24<Hydroxide>ffws|hathe: yeah, I forgot about Suggests ... apt-get doesn't even present them to you as a visible option, right? aptitude does, at least when you use it in the full-window user interface
15:24<Hydroxide>though they're not selected by default
15:24<kaliaz>but in shell mode i prefer apt-get
15:24<ffws|hathe>Hydroxide: apt-cache show <package>does
15:24<mes>apt-get does present suggest
15:24-!-zevarito [] has joined #debian
15:24<mes>it has suggests and recommends
15:25<Hydroxide>kaliaz: really? you know aptitude has a shell mode that works pretty much identically to apt-get
15:25<Hydroxide>kaliaz: except that if you want to change something before you start the download, you can
15:25<kaliaz>mmm i prefer the gui mode of aptitude
15:25-!-meandtheshell [] has quit [Quit: Leaving.]
15:26<kaliaz>yeah u right hydroxide
15:26<Hydroxide>kaliaz: like, if you type "aptitude install pidgin evolution" and then, when it prompts you, you don't want evolution any more, you can type "-evolution" or "_evolution" and it'll remove or purge evolution
15:26<kaliaz>i know that
15:26<Hydroxide>kaliaz: and at the prompt, if it gives you a complicated dependency resolution and you want to examine it more closely, you can type e and it'll pull up the full aptitude interface with the same operations selected, to let you examine and tweak as needed
15:27<kaliaz>when i have a p?oblem with apt-get i use aptitude
15:27-!-fxiny [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
15:27<Hydroxide>that works
15:27<kaliaz>yeah i know
15:27<Hydroxide>ffws|hathe: anyway, I have no vested interest in making you use aptitude. enjoy apt-get :)
15:27-!-smaug9 [] has left #debian []
15:27<kaliaz>but right now from a gui the best is synaptic
15:28-!-Sao [] has joined #debian
15:28<Hydroxide>kaliaz: on that note, Obey Arthur Liu is working on a Google Summer of Code project for Debian to make a gtk aptitude
15:28<mes>that'd be cool
15:28<Hydroxide>his blog is here:
15:28<kaliaz>yeah i wana see that
15:29<Hydroxide>including links to code, though he's going to be rewriting his initial version (often a good idea)
15:29<ranix>what a waste of time
15:29<Hydroxide>ranix: hey, you don't have to use it
15:30<ranix>I also don't have to support it
15:30<Hydroxide>ranix: true.
15:30<mes>nope, ain't free choice great?
15:30<ffws|hathe>Hydroxide: I know they depend on the same, but the way the try to solve dependency problems is quite different, adn I found out that just apt-get is most stable for debian unstable ;)
15:30<ranix>in fact, I get great pleasure from loudly proclaiming what a stupid idea graphical package management is
15:30<Hydroxide>ffws|hathe: as I said, enjoy it
15:31<Hydroxide>ranix: well, I don't think anyone's planning to stop developing the console version of aptitude
15:31<Hydroxide>(or apt-get, as far as I know)
15:31<ranix>Hydroxide: it's a red herring for new users
15:31<Hydroxide>ranix: depends on your definitions, goals, etc.
15:32<ffws|hathe>Hydroxide: I will ;)
15:32<ranix>graphical package management suggests click-and-pray end user practices and encourages the selection of "everything that sounds relevent" over "only what I need"
15:32<ranix>not unlike the package group selection in the Debian installer
15:33<ranix>i.e. "games" and "laptop" and "workstation"
15:33<Hydroxide>ranix: that's not a matter of gui versus console
15:33<Hydroxide>ranix: that's a matter of using metapackages or tasks versus not

15:34<ranix>Hydroxide: I disagree. Every way of presenting that amount of information to the user in a visually pleasing manner rather than in an information strip that draws attention to detail promotes lazy end usser practices
15:35-!-HaMMiE [] has joined #debian
15:35<ranix>Hydroxide: although I agree with you on metapackages, that's a separate issue
15:35<ranix>but related
15:35<Hydroxide>ranix: wait, so you're opposed to anything that prevents information to the user in a visually pleasing manner?
15:35<Hydroxide>ranix: including things like firefox/iceweasel, pidgin, etc?
15:35<wnd>with any desktop environment "useless crap" goes without saying ;-)
15:35<kaliaz>ranix not all users are experts
15:36<ranix>Hydroxide: generally speaking, I find it to be a negative trait of information presentation
15:36<ranix>Hydroxide: it can be overcome by other positive traits
15:36<ranix>I do not use firefox over elinks because firefox looks nicer
15:36<ranix>I do it because it renders pages more completely with different standard sets
15:36-!-adema [] has joined #debian
15:37<Hydroxide>ranix: similarly for me. that said, you do agree it presents things in a visually pleasing manner, most of the time :)
15:37<ranix>Hydroxide: maybe I meant 'visually exciting' manner or something closer to 'distracting'
15:38<Hydroxide>ranix: well, I agree distracting is bad :)
15:38<kaliaz>distracting ?
15:38<Hydroxide>of course, this is all so subjective
15:38<ranix>Hydroxide: a new user must not be coached into click-and-pray mechanics
15:38<kaliaz>mmmmmm why not ?
15:38<Hydroxide>ranix: well, having a user interface where they can be presented with various common applications and given the opportunity to click to install them is fine
15:38<ranix>kaliaz: go use windows peer networking for a few days and meditate on it
15:38<kaliaz>just because is easy ?
15:38<mes>how is synaptic click-and-*pray*?
15:38<Hydroxide>ranix: waaaaiiitt... windows peer networking is NOT click and pray
15:38<kaliaz>i use xp and vista on my machine :)
15:38<Hydroxide>ranix: windows peer networking is not easy
15:40<ranix>Hydroxide: do you disagree when I say that there is an extremely large volume of users who are able to stumble their way into a semblance of a usable peer network with click-and-pray...
15:40<kaliaz>just one right click and install remove purge etc
15:40<ranix>Hydroxide: such that a huge volume of people believe that this is the only way to use it?

15:41<ranix>I'm kidding I'm kidding!
15:41<ranix>but specifically because of Screen
15:41<ranix>otherwise it'd be xchat
15:42<ranix>screen/pork/irssi is too useful to use anything else

17:45<unkie>Hello dear debian community. I'm very new to linux and a mate of mine told me to use debian. My first problem is to choose the correct install cd. I'm plaing to use debian on an old notebook with 600MHz, 64MB Ram and 10GB HDD. So I think xfce would be a good interface. Do i have to download _all_ 21CD or is the one featuring xfce enough?

17:46<unkie>sadly it has no internet connection yet.
17:46<Gathond>unkie: then from there install ONLY the base system (uncheck everything when you get to it asking the tasks)
17:46<Gathond>unkie: cd 1 then
17:47<mordy>i just installed debian - hehe, complex thing
17:47<unkie>ok i will thanks Gathond
17:47<Gathond>and same procedure, you can install the rest from the terminal once you have the basic system running
17:47<Gathond>you might have to fetch more CD's though, I'm not sure where there is an index over what is on which CD's
17:48<unkie>ok hope i don't have to download all of them ^^

20:17<dpkg>To get write access to a vfat partition when mounting it with fstab, use the line "/dev/partition /mount/point vfat defaults,uid=USERID,gid=GROUPID,umask=002 0 0" in /etc/fstab. umask=002 will make the partition rwxrwxr-x, while umask=022 will make it rwxr-xr-x.

21:22<Golfgeo>Hi all
21:23<Golfgeo>Is the flashplayer-mozilla slow (cpu-intensice) when running flash video's or is it just me?
21:23<gawz>mount -t smbfs -o username=root,password=xxxxxx,rw //merlin2/server1_mysql_daily_backup
21:23<gawz>does that look right?
21:24<gawz>or should it be smbfs first then mount/
21:24<gawz>cause i get a hel advise for mount????
21:24<Golfgeo>gawz: Where are you going to mount it and I use the -o thing at the ned of the line...
21:25<amphi>Golfgeo: last time I used it (which was not so recently), it was cpu intensive
21:25<gawz>mounting samba share to debian
21:25<Golfgeo>No, at what dir are you going to mount the share?
21:25-!-xplicit [] has joined #debian
21:25<gawz>what mounting a samba share? or just the one time mount process?
21:26<Golfgeo>So I guess it would have to be: mount -t smbfs /somedir //merlin2/server1_mysql_daily_backup -o username=root,password=xxxxxx,rw
21:26<gawz>oh yeah i forgot that part. gimmie a few secs to try it
21:26<Golfgeo>Oh yea, the ip=someip is also handy in the options
21:28<gawz>Could not resolve mount point /mnt/merlin2
21:28<gawz>i added the mnt/merlin2 at the end and got this
21:28<gawz>does that mean i need to creat the merlin2 mount on debian first?
21:29<Golfgeo>Your question doesn't make sense mate
21:29<amphi>gawz: yes; you need to mkdir the mount point
21:29<amphi>if that's what you mean ;)
21:30<Golfgeo>Then sway /somedir and //marline..
21:31<Golfgeo>so: mount -t smbfs //merline... /somedir

21:32<synzz>does wget handle downloading DVD ISO images ok?

21:34<gawz>when i then mount merlin2.. i get..not found in fstab
21:34<synzz>hmm, wonder if I have that
21:34<Golfgeo>gawz: use the ip=someip option in the options
21:34<amphi>synzz: I haven't used wget on such large files since I had a 64bit machine

22:04<FoxM>Hi. How can I change the I/O speed of my USB stick? I use Debian Lenny AMD64 in two different machines and in one of them, it writes/read at full speed (usb 1.1), but on the other, it writes/read at high speed (usb 2.0). In both machines, the device is registered as a USB 2.0 device, and the Sync option in KDE is disabled.
22:05<Golfgeo|bbl>FoxM: Are teh kernel versions the same?
22:06<FoxM>yes. Debian Lenny 2.6.24-7-amd64
22:07<Golfgeo|bbl>FoxM: That's mighty wierd mate.
22:07<FoxM>Golfgeo|bbl: sorry 2.6.24-1-amd64
22:07<Golfgeo|bbl>Might be the usb-controllers are different then...
22:07<Golfgeo|bbl>FoxM: But the same on both machines, right?
22:08<FoxM>Golfgeo|bbl: How do I check that info about the controllers?
22:08<FoxM>Golfgeo|bbl: Yes... both machines run the same kernel.
22:09<Golfgeo|bbl>lspci is where I would start, but it also might be that there is some sort of hub between the port where you plug the stick in and the usb-controller on the slow machine (Try a backport on that machine (fysical port at the back of the machine))
22:10<gawz>Golfgeo: I finally got the files to show on samba server. They are also copied in debian directory i mounted. this is normal right?
22:10<Golfgeo|bbl>lspci is a commandline tool
22:10<Golfgeo|bbl>gawz: If you do unmount /somedir and they seem to have vanished, then yes :-)
22:11<FoxM>Golfgeo|bbl: There is indeed a HUB... the one on my LCD display. I will try to plug the stick directly to the board and see what happens...
22:11<Golfgeo|bbl>gawz: But you still need to learn more about Debian filesystems and Samba...
22:11<gawz>Golfgeo: thanks for everything..
22:11<Golfgeo|bbl>gawz: yw mate
22:11<gawz>oh yeah, im gonna.

23:51<digerati>the driver seems to be working since the card's lights come on, and i can get an iwlist that shows the 3 networks i know to be around my place
23:51<xplicit>broadcom BCM4306
23:52<amphi>does iwconfig show the card is associated?
23:52<dpkg>bcm43xx is a driver for Broadcom's wireless chipsets ( included in kernels since 2.6.17-rc2, "modprobe bcm43xx" in Etch. Firmware required to be loaded before operation, ask me about <bcm43xx-fwcutter>. Deprecated by <b43legacy> in kernels 2.6.24 and later. USB devices are not supported. Disabled in Debian 2.6.24+ kernel images.
23:53<digerati>iwconfig shows the correct essid, frequency, and access point
23:53<xplicit>so i need to figure out what kernel im running, and possibly downgrade?
23:53<qq_>xplicit: etch ?
23:54<qq_>--->>> lenny
23:54<qq_>go to ...

23:55<FoxM>bah... didn't work :P
23:55<FoxM>rumour has it, etch->lenny is First, see <apt-listbugs> and lenny release notes. Edit sources.list (# editor /etc/apt/sources.list), change all non-local mentions of 'etch' or 'stable' to 'lenny'. Save the file, `aptitude update` and `aptitude dist-upgrade`. Also consider subscribing to debian-devel-announce (ask me about <d-d-a>) to be aware of what developments are happening.
23:55<xplicit>sorry for the newbie questions but i appriciate you guys alot! =)
23:55<digerati>upgrading to lenny is easy. edit sources.lst and change etch to lenny
23:56<qq_>+ apt-get update
23:56<xplicit>gotchya thank you guys so much for all the help, as after spending hours trying to figure it out myself i am a fail =p

23:58<Tsuki>I get to the point where it asks me for the CD and I pop that in and now I've got a blank cursor staring at me
23:58<digerati>I think maybe its a problem with my dhcp. Can I use ifconfig to renew the dhcp?
23:59<digerati>tsuki:what hardware are you on?
23:59<digerati>tsuki: it shouldn't ask you for the CD i don't think. That should be in and you should be booting to the CD.
23:59<Tsuki>Uh, it's usng a Pentium 166mhz chip
