00:00-!-p_quarles [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:00<syntax>mtnman, I mean I wish more vendors would support Debian as well, since some are now supporting Ubuntu
00:00<chealer>gsimmons: right
00:00<syntax>my delima is the new hardware old kernel thing
00:01<mtnman>syntax: we don't need no stinkin' vendor support.
00:01-!-p_quarles [] has joined #debian
00:02<syntax>are you saying that if you get a new server, break out your etch CD, pop it in and it doesn't recognize the hard disks because the chipset is too new isn't a problem to you?
00:02<dpkg>For etch (or sarge) installers with up-to-date kernels, see, or ask me about <etchnhalf>.
00:02<dondelelcaro>syntax: see above.
00:02<syntax>doesn't that lead to backports?
00:03<dondelelcaro>syntax: a single backported kernel, yes, but that's no big deal.
00:03<mtnman>syntax: if i had ever had the opportunity to install on new hardware i would comment. i use only "recycled" hardware.
00:03<syntax>thanks :-)
00:03<gsimmons>!tell nickburns -about islsm
00:04<mtnman>yo ho dr. don
00:04<syntax>dondelelcaro, this is exactly what I'm looking for
00:04<syntax>I was about to embark on my own project to do the same thing
00:04<nickburns>gsimmons - thanks will have a look also
00:05-!-rchandia [] has quit [Quit: G'night yall...]
00:05<syntax>ubuntu firmware? wth is that?
00:06<gsimmons>nickburns: I'd be interested in the output from a `lsusb' command on your system, if/when convenient. You can provide this output at a paste site.
00:09<syntax>dondelelcaro, so is this guy at using backported kernels from testing or unstable?
00:09<chealer>dpkg: no, dwl-g122 is a card that uses a RT2500USB chipset for some revisions. To install a driver for these revisions in Etch, ask me about <rt2x00> for the current driver, or use the (legacy) rt2570 driver.
00:09<dpkg>chealer: okay
00:09<syntax>or are these his own custom compiled kernels?

00:13<syntax>has anyone here been around long enough to run Debian 0.93R6?
00:13-!-johny [~johny@] has quit []
00:14<syntax>or buzz?
00:14<newsense>not me
00:14<dondelelcaro>anyone can run those; they're all still available
00:14-!-Chocobo [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
00:14*mtnman 's first deb system was bo
00:15<syntax>mine too
00:15<newsense>debian will run out of toy story characters before i die
00:15<mtnman>newsense: well, not to be pessimistic, but you can die at any moment.
00:16<syntax>with the release cycle of Debian versions, I highly doubt that :-)
00:16*newsense finds wood to knock on
00:16<newsense>syntax, lol probobly
00:16<dondelelcaro>there aren't too many original toy story characters left, but there are still some
00:17*mtnman hands newsense a deb 3.o system so he can knock on woody
00:17<dondelelcaro>(and we do release around every two years, so...)
00:17<newsense>what is left ?
00:17<mtnman>3.0 even..
00:17<newsense>i cant even think of any
00:17<newsense>lol no shit
00:17<syntax>dondelelcaro, enough to last Debian another 2 decades :-)
00:17<newsense>wikipedia has it
00:18<syntax>my biggest wait was from woody to sarge
00:18<newsense>yeah were all good for a while
00:18<syntax>and I kinda wonder why they called that a major upgrade
00:18<syntax>it went from 3.0 to 3.1
00:19<syntax>potato to woody was pretty long too
00:19<dondelelcaro>!release history
00:19<dpkg>Debian releases have always been named after characters from the movie "Toy Story". Buzz(1.1; 1996-03-14), Rex(1.2; 1996-10-28), Bo(1.3; 1997-05-01), Hamm(2.0; 1998-07-24), Slink(2.1; 1999-03-09), Potato(2.2; 2000-08-15), Woody(3.0; 2002-07-19), Sarge(3.1; 2005-06-06) and Etch (4.0; 2007-04-08). The next release will be Lenny. See also <>.
00:19<newsense>my great grandkids might run bullseye oneday
00:19<newsense>maybe even great great
00:20<syntax>but I totally prefer old binaries for stability than new shit to get the bells and whistles
00:20<syntax>I wonder what will come after sid
00:20-!-Terr1 [] has quit []
00:20<mtnman>sid will always be.
00:21<newsense>i think i started out on slink
00:21<syntax>they should hold polls for the next name
00:21<newsense>as far as debian goes
00:21<dondelelcaro>syntax: nah; it's the RM's job to decide
00:21<dondelelcaro>if you want to have a vote, become an RM.
00:21<dondelelcaro>(you do the work, you get to choose)
00:21<syntax>promote me to president! then kick me
00:22<newsense>or woody whicxhever came first
00:22<syntax>I don't care what it is. I just appreciate the work
00:22<syntax>has anyone heard about the do-dist-upgrade script from ubuntu?
00:22-!-BRAZUCA [] has joined #debian
00:22<newsense>what is it ?
00:23<syntax>I only heard about it, but I think it's supposed to allow you to roll back from a dist-upgrade
00:23*syntax reaches over and presses BRAZUCA's caps lock key.
00:23<newsense>syntax, cleanly ?
00:23<BRAZUCA>what or server is venezuela
00:24<syntax>newsense, no clue. A teammate at work tried it today. he said the dist upgrade went well, so I don't think he had to try to roll back
00:24-!-freealan [] has joined #debian
00:24-!-kingsley [] has joined #debian
00:24<newsense>i would never attempt to roll back
00:24<syntax>is venezuela in Italy?
00:24<syntax>newsense, why not?
00:24<newsense>besides a testing sstem
00:25<syntax>it'd be great if a dist-upgrade hosed something
00:25<newsense>on a production system, forget it
00:25<syntax>I'd trust a roll back ona *ix box far more than a windows one
00:25<syntax>but I guess it all depends on how it's done
00:25<mtnman>venezuela and italy are separate countries
00:25<newsense>i run windows and i hate to aaaadmit it but im a gamer too
00:25<syntax>what do they speak there?
00:26<syntax>I do and am too
00:26<syntax>in venuzuela
00:26<newsense>but i run linux unless i want to game
00:26<syntax>oh, then maybe he can check one of the spanish chans
00:26<Tsuki>Okay, this is really off topic but is anyone following all the media work being put out on "The Dark Knight"?
00:27<newsense>i wanna see it, im a chicagoan
00:27<newsense>kinda cool to see your city as gotham city
00:28<syntax>newsense, I went full linux once, even while gaming. it was nice, but I ran in to issues with some games, namely those with punkbuster
00:28-!-kevinhuang [~kevin@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:28<syntax>I went that route for about 4 years before I went back to windows for gaming
00:28<newsense>not all good pc games are made for linux
00:28<newsense>not many at all
00:29<syntax>you can get most to run and run well, punkbuster is anti-cheat software, so it didn't like running under GNU
00:29<newsense>i got vista and since i got my ps3 have booted into it 3 times in last few months
00:29<syntax>I got vista on my work laptop. I hate it
00:29<syntax>I bought it to put on my home PC but I don't think I will
00:29<BRAZUCA>fucky all
00:29<syntax>that's another copy of vista that's purchased but never registered, lol
00:29<newsense>im gonna most likely delete the windows partitiojn, ps3 is nice
00:30-!-mode/#debian [+q *!*] by FloodServ
00:30<syntax>BRAZUCA, thanks!
00:30<newsense>gonna throw debian on it too
00:30<dpkg>Este canal é apenas em inglês. Por favor, use #debian-br (/j #debian-br) para ajuda em portugues.
00:30<newsense>what a ****
00:30<syntax>lol, damn

00:30<syntax>BRAZUCA, there you go, happy trails :-)
00:31<syntax>and thanks for the fish
00:31<Tsuki>I'm just looking over the website. It's a little freaky
00:31<newsense>happy trails to you
00:31-!-BRAZUCA [] has left #debian []
00:31<syntax>Tsuki, it's serious because Debian Gotham is serious business
00:32<syntax>sorry for my chatter, I'm just waiting for this VMware image to finish allocating disk space for my image
00:32-!-ijuz [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:33<syntax>I'll troll more for humor while the channel is dead :-)
00:34<infotron>yeah. you do that.
00:34<Tsuki>Mwahaha. :P
00:35<syntax>so, I decided that one of my etch packages was too old for <insert binary utility here>, so I used alien to upgrade one of my packages from rpm. now I get errors when I run <insert binary utility here>. where did I go wrong?
00:35-!-linac [~lin@] has joined #debian
00:36<syntax>how do I upgrade from Redhat to Debian?
00:36-!-syntax [syntax@otaku.freeshell.ORG] has left #debian []
00:36<infotron>you install it. duh
00:36-!-syntax [syntax@otaku.freeshell.ORG] has joined #debian
00:36<Tsuki>This is HARD:
00:36<syntax>how do I upgrade from Slackware to Debian?
00:38<infotron>!tell syntax -about netinst
00:38-!-freealan [] has quit [Quit: leaving]
00:38<infotron>you install it. there's not clean cut upgrade path.
00:38<infotron>oh, actually,
00:38<infotron>!tell syntax -about i-g
00:39<syntax>ok, ok... on a more serious note. it seems that we're lacking the ability to roll back in case of a bad upgrade. I'm thinking of starting a new project such as apt-rollback and also adding functionality into apt-get with an apt-get dist-downgrade feature. what do you all think?
00:40<syntax>so, in essence, apt-get dist-downgrade will be like dist-upgrade. it will take you back down to the previous release. apt-rollback will provide something like a checkpoint and perform something similar to dist-downgrade, but aimed more toward rolling back from an apt-get upgrade
00:41<syntax>based on how apt is just a front-end to dpkg, and dpkg knows how to handle all the dependencies, it seems like this is possible
00:41<infotron>that's not very relavant w/in debian. we have snapshot debs for older releases not found on mirrors. after that it's config files and user data.
00:42<syntax>infotron, but if apt-rollback kept track of what was and what will be, it should be able to handle it
00:42<syntax>so, in most cases, even during a dist-upgrade, config files are normally left alone. if not, they're parsed and upgraded, correct?
00:42<infotron>that's right. downgrading isn't supported.
00:43<syntax>I understand that downgrading isn't. that's whre apt-rollback will come in
00:43<infotron>what if you make changes to your configs long time after the upgrades? What if it's not compatible with the old version?
00:44<syntax>apt-rollback will integrate with apt-get and dpkg tightly. if it sees that packageXS T G OLD CONFIG FILE AND BACKS IT UPFILE< IT TAKES THE OLD CONFIG FILE AND BACKS IT UP> THAT DOESN"T TAKE MUCH DISK SP

00:48-!-Atomo64 [~Atomo64@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:48<syntax>good point you have there, however, my project will be aimed more toward those who do a dist-upgrade or upgrade and find something not working before their next dist-upgrade or upgrade
00:48<syntax>e.g. limit the recovery to the previous point before failure
00:49<syntax>kinda like using a snapshot based filesystem but not using the filesystem as a recovery point
00:49<syntax>that way it's not filesystem dependent
00:50<syntax>I think that, based on the information apt gives us during an upgrade or dist-upgrade, we can determine which packages are new and which are upgrades
00:50<syntax>then we should be safe with dpkg --purge on the new and dpkg --remove on the upgrades
00:50-!-kingsley [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:51<syntax>or maybe even dpkg --purge on the upgrades and grab the pre-config files from the backup apt-rollback makes

01:01<syntax>samba has come a long way
01:02<infotron>and it started out small and beautiful.
01:02<syntax>I blame MS for making it so complex
01:02<syntax>but I do love how AD is based on LDAP and Kerberos
01:02<infotron>Novell gave them most of that as an idea.
01:02<syntax>that was a different approach for MS, even though they added their own twist to it
01:03<infotron>edirectory or whatever it's called?
01:03<syntax>have you ever tried iFolder?
01:03<syntax>do you run any windows boxes?
01:04<syntax>ahh, no use for you, then :-)
01:04<syntax>lol, it's a way to sync files between PCs
01:04<infotron>I have rsync for that
01:04<syntax>at my last job, we used it to sync My Docs
01:04<syntax>yeah, goodie for *ix :-)
01:04<infotron>and if the filesystem supports hardlinks, you can create generational snapshots too
01:05<syntax>I never really understood hardlinks as opposed to softlinks. can you explain?
01:05-!-mhash [~largo@] has joined #debian
01:05<infotron>I use it to backup my server stuff all the time. :) saves tons of disk space.
01:05<infotron>symlinks don't contain the content. hardlinks look like normal files, but there are two pointers to the same data.
01:06<infotron>symlinks can point into another filesystem, hardlinks must reside on the same block device (partition etc)
01:06<syntax>so if one hardlink is deleted, does the data get deleted?
01:06<infotron>not until all the hardlinks are deleted
01:06-!-jegc [~jegc@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
01:06<infotron>technically every file has atleast one hardlink
01:06<syntax>so why would one use a hardlink instead of a soft?
01:07<syntax>why does every FS have at least one hardlink?
01:07<infotron>if you have two hardlinks on a file, you can safely delete one. not always true on softlinks.
01:07<infotron>0 hardlinks = no file
01:07<syntax>are softlinks and deletion of them dependent upon the shell or what?
01:08<infotron>no. unlink is a system call
01:08<CompWizrd>backuppc uses them as a way of tracking backups.. creates a hardlink to the file instead of creating a new duplicate file.. and does garbage collection to track if the file no longer exists in any backups
01:08<syntax>ok, making more sense now. with softlinks (in most cases) you can delete all softlinks but still remain the binary file, or text
01:08<CompWizrd>so a typical backuppc machine might have 500,000 real files, and 5 million hardlinks or more.
01:08<syntax>unlink is kernel based?
01:08<infotron>yeah. you can rm -Rf the old generation, and the new generation is unaffected.
01:09<infotron>afaik, yeah.
01:09<infotron>unlink is the system call. every filesystem does it differently.
01:09<infotron>ext2/3, fat, nfs, etc
01:09<CompWizrd>but if you delete the original file on a softlink, it's gone, all the symlinks now dangle. a hardlink still keeps a copy till you hit 0
01:09<syntax>CompWizrd, interesting
01:10<syntax>I still don't understand how softlinks and hardlinks differ from each other, other than how if you delete all hardlinks, the file is gone, and if you delete all softlinks, the file will exist
01:10<syntax>infotron, unlink = linking files like symlink or hardlinks?
01:11<infotron>if you delete the final desitnation of where your softlinks point, all the data is gone.
01:11<syntax>ok, I see that now
01:11<syntax>so the symlinks exist but point to nothing
01:11<syntax>if you delete the destination file of a hardlink, do the links disappear?
01:12<infotron>it's like a shortcut in windows. you can have a bad shortcut point to a non existant place
01:12-!-andr01d [~user@] has joined #debian
01:12<infotron>depends on how many hardlinks exist for that file. after it drops to 0, the real data is deleted.
01:12<infotron>otherwise they're like duplicate entrys in the filesystem
01:12<syntax>that's really cool
01:13<dpkg>i heard inode is a filesystem entry: a file, a directory, or some other item
01:13<syntax>do they take up space?
01:13-!-jm_ [] has joined #debian
01:13<infotron>it's all about the inodes :)
01:13<infotron>some of this will explain more,
01:13<infotron>!tell syntax -about grounding
01:14<syntax>yeah, true
01:14<andr01d>errr... Hi all. Sorry for stupid question, but does anybody know how to change file associations in gnome?
01:14<syntax>it's been ages since I've read them and a lot has happened since then
01:14-!-freealan [] has quit [Quit: leaving]
01:15<andr01d>i mean that, for ex., i want .py files to be opened by eclipse, not by gedit
01:16<jm_>sounds unintuitive, but perhaps right click on it?
01:16<andr01d>permanent association

01:16<andr01d>by double-click
01:16<infotron>strace for the win
01:17<andr01d>i mean that i'd like to open .py files by eclipse double-clicking on them
01:17<syntax>infotron, you can strace an X based program and find output that's signicant to troubleshoot the problem?
01:18-!-oahong [~oahong@] has joined #debian
01:18<syntax>I mean, I understand that most X based programs invoke shell commands, but...
01:18<infotron>strace -e open,fork -o logstuff -p pid
01:18<infotron>just maybe...
01:18<infotron>er -fF too
01:19<infotron>you can strace any user space process. except maybe init

01:22<syntax>I'm going to create some mirrors of GNU repositories for my job. what is most efficient to use and handles large files (4GB DVD images)? can rsync handle it?
01:23<CompWizrd>rsync can handle that, long as your filesystem can
01:23<CompWizrd>i've rsync'd 1 TB files before
01:23<syntax>can things get screwed up if there is a latency between downloads and disk writes?
01:24<syntax>or visaversa
01:24<syntax>and what did you use to download?
01:24<syntax>and where they binary or ascci files
01:25<syntax>and was it a point to point link or vpn?
01:25-!-freealan [] has joined #debian

02:30<jm_>kingsley: weren't you the one with device busy message at shutdown for / ?
02:30<kingsley>jm_: Yes, you have a good memory.

02:31<kingsley>jm_: Correct-a-mundo.
02:31-!-vortex [] has joined #debian
02:32<kingsley>jm_: I should probably also add that I'm still trying to determine why the shutdown (re)mount command failed.
02:33<kingsley>jm_: Have you been able to determine what you're using at home?
02:33<jm_>kingsley: my guess is you have some other fs mounted somewhere which fails to umount or something along those lines
02:33<jm_>kingsley: no, I am at work now, 7h to go still
02:33<Owner>you need to recover the journal
02:33<jm_>kingsley: but I am pretty certain I am not seeing this message
02:34<Owner>force a fsk when you reboot
02:34<kingsley>jm_: I've actually narrowed the failure down to a specific "mount" command in /etc/init.d/umountroot, which tries to remount / in read only mode.
02:34<jm_>he doesn't need to, the scripts take care of it
02:34<jm_>kingsley: yes, but the reason is elsewhere
02:35<kingsley>jm_: If you're so inclined, and think you may have some insight into the matter, perhaps you could elaborate.
02:35<jm_>kingsley: check /proc/mounts before it calls remount
02:36<kingsley>jm_: OK. I'll check it again, and let you know what I find.
02:37<jm_>kingsley: again? have you checked it before?
02:37<kingsley>jm_: Ohhhh yeaaa. I'm been diligently debugging this for days.

Both happened within the four re-boots since I changed the file system from EXT2 to EXT3. My experience, and the comments in 2.6.26's changelog regarding mount and timing lead me to suspect a bug in the kernel.
02:51<kingsley>jm_: Having said that, I'd be happy to show you the output of "cat /proc/mount", or ps, fuser, lsof, mount, fstab or mtab.

02:55<KaiSVK>hi all
02:56<kingsley>jm_: My concern is that 2.6.25 has a subtle bug that's only revealed by looking for "EXT3-fs: INFO: recovery required on readonly filesystem" in /var/log/messages.
02:56<KaiSVK>newsense: hello :), thanx again for yeasterday, with your help I installed nvidia drivers with the new kernel :)
02:56<KaiSVK>jm_: thank you too :)
02:57<jm_>kingsley: if that was the case many people would be hitting it - it's your shutdown thing that's problematic - what is in /proc/mounts when the problem occurs?
02:58<kingsley>jm_: Thanks for asking. I'm happy to reveals its nine lines. Where would you like to see them? In a pastebin? In #flood?
02:59<jm_>kingsley: and what did /etc/init.d/umountfs say?

03:07<kingsley>jm_: Yes, you're right of course. But the kernel developers did mention quite a few mount and timing bugs. I'll try removing "cat /proc/mounts" and see what happens!

03:26<kingsley>jm_: Perhaps I could add "dmesg -n7 at the top of the script, and "bash" before it exits.

03:41<dataangel>heh, well jm, i am going to take a look at my user .bashrc and my root .bashrc at the dircolors stuff and evaluate the differences.... :) it should be a intresting exercise, i wish i had windows to do it with without entering xwindows, but if i remember correctly the text window manger thingy doesnt work too well
03:42<kingsley>jm_: I suppose I could do something like "sleep 10" in an xterm, then ctl-alt-F1 to the root console, but I'd need to be a quick reader to catch error messages before the screen goes dark. It seems to me that I'd still need a read command in /etc/init.d/umountroot. What do you think?
03:42<jm_>dataangel: you don't need dircolor, but you need an alias for ls: ls --color=auto
03:42<dataangel>thanks for the info jm ...
03:42<jm_>kingsley: yeah that's why it would be better using serial/network console
03:43<jm_>dataangel: it should be in your bashrc, just commented out
03:43<kingsley>jm_: I see. If it weren't so late here, and if I had more hardware, I'd consider it.
03:44<jm_>kingsley: it only requires one extra computer ;)
03:44<jm_>kingsley: alternatively, you may just try 2.6.26 and see if it fixes it

13:24<hypnotic>udev supports persistent device naming, which does not depend on, for example, the order in which the devices are plugged into the system. The default udev setup provides persistent names for storage devices. Any hard disk is recognized by its unique filesystem id, the name of the disk and the physical location on the hardware it is connected to.

13:53<eddieB>how do i write an alias to do this? "mv file /home/blah/blah"
13:54<Cheatah>why would you want an alias to do that?
13:54<eddieB>would it be | alias mvb='mv * /home/blah/blag'?
13:54<Cheatah>you'd better write a shell script
13:54<fxiny>eddieB: do you know mc ?
13:55<eddieB>fxiny: nope
13:55<StarkD>anyone here who are forced to use MS Windows and know of a program that would provide the GNOME shortcuts Alt+F5, Alt+F7, Alt+F9, Alt+F10? I have tried severl hotkey programs but they don't provide what I'm seeking
13:55<fxiny>eddieB: good for doing things in a xterm/konsole watever
13:56<eddieB>fxiny: do you know how i would write that alias?
13:56<Cheatah>DON'T use aliases for that
13:56<Cheatah>use simple scripts

13:56<dpkg>What Are You Trying To Do, eddieB?
13:57<eddieB>i want to move a file to a directory using an alias. but the file would be different everytime

13:59<themill>eddieB: You could use either a bash function or a simple script. something like: mvfoo() { mv "$@" /bah/foo/; }
13:59<Cheatah>if you want to have something done, yes
13:59-!-astronut [] has left #debian []
13:59<themill>eddieB: (the example is a function that you could put in your ~/.bash_profile)

13:59<Cheatah>are you familiar with the concept of "arguments" or "variables"?

14:00<regelatwork>certainly, not posix

14:08<eddieB>that's what i get when i try "source ~/.bash_profile"
14:09<Cheatah>so you tried to put a function in ~/.bash_profile like themill said
14:09-!-klh [] has joined #debian
14:09<Cheatah>then where did you really put it?
14:09-!-MotoHoss [] has joined #debian
14:09<Cheatah>if you don't HAVE ~/.bash_profile
14:10<fxiny>root ?
14:10<eddieB>i did locate .bash_profile
14:10<fxiny>eddieB: are you root ?
14:10<fxiny>why ?
14:10<eddieB>why not?
14:10<Cheatah>so he can break his system, i guess

14:12<fxiny>right , you'd better log and play as that normal user for a while
14:12<eddieB>"eddieB: just use regelatwork's suggestion in your ~/.bash_profile" that's what i did
14:12<eddieB>i didn't do the other one
14:12<Hideo>fxiny: I believe he's been using root ever since we first helped him
14:12<regelatwork>xbj9000: install alsa and perhaps alsa-utils
14:12<Hideo>days ago
14:12<fxiny>Hideo: must be
14:12<Cheatah>Hideo: that's quite a prestige
14:14<Cheatah>well, if you are root, ~/.bash_profile would be /root/.bash_profile
14:14<Cheatah>which you say doesn't exist
14:14<Cheatah>so you did not add anything to ~/.bash_profile
14:15<eddieB>i'm not root anymore

18:41<wnd>saintk, instead of "total" cpu usage top shows three differently calculated averages. also, if both cores are fully utilised, the load would be 2.00, not 1.00. similary, if one core if 50 % active and the other is idle, system load would be 0.5.
18:41-!-mordy [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
18:42-!-mode/#debian [+l 359] by debhelper
18:42<saintk>wnd: Allright, so which one should i be looking at to ensure its not running out of availible CPU power?
18:43<wnd>see the manual page for uptime for details ("man uptime")
18:44<saintk>wnd: If i understand the man correctly, on a dualcore system, you can go to a load av. of 2.0, right ?
18:44<saintk>as it see's each core as 1 cpu
18:45<wnd>correct. if load exceeds 2.0 on a dual-core (single cpu) system, the processes are too much for the computer to deal in realtime.
18:45<saintk>wnd: Cool, thanks for the information!
18:46<wnd>but also note that on such system load can easily exceed 2.0
18:47<saintk>okay thanks!
18:47<wnd>you could think system load to represent number of cpu cores that are required to handle all active tasks in realtime
18:47<wnd>don't mention it :-)

19:19<maxb_>apt-show-versions is a tool whether each installed package is uptodate with your apt sources, upgradable, or (and these are the interesting ones) present in your system but not in your apt sources, or a newer version than in any apt source
19:19<maxb_>or what themill/dpkg said

19:23<themill>have fun :)
19:23<k6>May I abuse ? I have a very last question
19:23<maxb_>It's a good thing to do occasionally, or after changing your apt sources, or a major dist-upgrade
19:24<maxb_>It's not abuse, this channel exists for debian users to help each other
19:25<k6>I upgrade my system via ssh , and sometimes apt-get dist-upgrade restarts the ssh server so I lose my connexion while upgrading. What is the rigth way to upgrade via ssh ?
19:26<amphi>k6: use screen on the remote?
19:26<k6>amphi : hmm that is a solution :)

19:45<chealer>acu: at least konqueror's error reporting should be improved, but you're presumably running KDE 3, and KDE 4 uses mainly dolphin, so reporting wishlist upstream bugs may have little value.
19:46<Cheatah>and you will still need the right permissions to be allowed to mount the drive to a certain mount point

23:45<xbj9000>I think
23:45<xbj9000>oh to your group.. sorry I don't know exactly
23:46<Cheatah>can't be done normally
23:46<variable>I don't think so
23:46<Cheatah>you'd have to have write access to /etc/groups or any other source for group checking
23:47<variable>I think just with root right you can add/delete and edit users
23:47<superlinux>aha ok
23:47<superlinux>i said so
23:47<superlinux>and it's thje esiet that way
23:48<variable>superlinux, what?
23:48<Cheatah>well, ldap could be used, and grant users certain permissions to modify groups
23:48<Cheatah>but by default, only /etc/group is checked
23:49<Cheatah>see /etc/nsswitch.conf
23:50<variable>:) as I know to configure /etc dirs and subdirs you need to have root rights
