00:00-!-xbj9000 [] has joined #debian
00:00<fsloke>dun use command prompt to extract
00:00<fsloke>use interface
00:00<lginn02>so use the terminal
00:00<fsloke>Do you all got install a modem driver?
00:00<dondelelcaro>lginn02: yes, that's the easy way.
00:01<lginn02>oh ok
00:01<fsloke>you can see the tar and gz
00:01<dondelelcaro>there are other ways, but how you use them depends on which desktop you're using and other things; the command line is universal.
00:01<fsloke>actually this is 2 level compression file
00:01<lginn02>im usung kde in ubuntu
00:01<dondelelcaro>fsloke: huh?
00:02<fsloke>Erm... do you all got install the modem in Linux?
00:02<fsloke>Yes, I using Ubuntu
00:02<dondelelcaro>fsloke, lginn02: Ubuntu isn't on topic here; you want #ubuntu on
00:03-!-mosty [] has joined #debian
00:03<dondelelcaro>!tell fsloke -about winmodem
00:03<mosty>how can i change the slapd admin password after it has been installed? i need to do this from a script, so dpkg-reconfigure won't work for me in this case
00:03-!-Syn- [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:04<lginn02>ya i know i figured since its based on debian i would get help here since i can never get my questions answered in the ubuntu channel
00:04<dondelelcaro>lginn02: there are lots of things based on Debian, but we only support Debian here; if we were supporting Ubuntu, we'd be in #ubuntu
00:04<xbj9000>what's your issue? I use ubuntu on my other PC
00:05<fsloke>how to install the modem?
00:06<lginn02>i wasnt reall in here for ubuntu i got my question answered already about the tar file

02:37<Baggy2>Hi all! I've got a critical question regarding gcc. How do I compile my libs against the debug libraries without including debug info? I am making commercial libs and don't want anyone to be able to get the source code..
02:38<Baggy2>I guess I shouldn't be asking this in a open source channel, but the commercial lib is just part of a package with open source libraries..
02:39<infotron>Baggy2: iceweasel has stripped and -dbg packages.
02:40<dondelelcaro>Baggy2: you just compile with debug info, then strip.

05:40<steven>hi all
05:41<steven>is santioned by debian?
05:41<themill>no, but many of us use it
05:41<sheldonh>Padski_: for NEW, set the packet MARK, save the packet mark to the CONNMARK, then _clear_ the packet MARK
05:41<themill>(and it is run by a debian developer)
05:41<dpkg>methinks dmm is Debian Multimedia, a repository of unofficial Debian packages, not in Debian for patent-related reasons, maintained by Christian Marillat. For information on how to use this repository, see . or ask me about <debian-multimedia.etch>
05:42<sheldonh>Padski_: on OUTPUT (or PREROUTING), restore the CONNMARK to the packet mark
05:42-!-linac [~lin@] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
05:43<sheldonh>Padski_: then add a rule that looks up the default route on a different table when the fwmark is set
05:43<Padski_>sheldonh, yeah, that's the kind of thing I was trying to do. buest I can guess, at prerouting time the packet doesn't already have a source address and so isn't matching the connection tracking :-(
05:44<steven>themill: are the packages in as safe as offical debian packages
05:44-!-foka [~foka@] has joined #debian
05:45<themill>steven: Depends on your point of view. Safe as in not trojaned? yes. Safe as in not buggy? no. Safe as in not patent-encumbered and won't get you sued? no. Safe as in doesn't tarnish your moral stance on freedom? definitely not.
05:45-!-satheesh [~satheesh@] has joined #debian
05:46<Padski_>shiny, shiny moral stance ;-)
05:46<steven>themill: safe as in no malware?
05:46-!-MTristan [] has joined #debian
05:47-!-satheesh [~satheesh@] has quit []
05:47<themill>steven: depends on your view of what malware is. Acrobat will try to display ads to you and will call home to see if there are new versions available. Is that malware?
05:49<steven>themill: I mean as in rootkits, viruses, worms or spyware?

05:50<themill>steven: none known. As I said, it's maintained by a respected debian developer. But some of the things in there are non-free binary blobs and so no-one knows what is in them.

11:31<lothar>ybin question: It should install the yaboot bootloader to the bootstrap partition, but it doesn't do so. Why ?
11:32<kipman>does anyone know why my friend who has only testing repos enabled from a fresh install of debian would have his version listed when he booted at lenny/sid rather than just lenny?
11:32<gsimmons>!why lenny/sid
11:32<dpkg>Why "lenny/sid" instead of just "lenny" or "sid"? See /usr/share/doc/base-files/FAQ ("Questions about /etc/issue and /etc/debian_version") for the answer.
11:32<gsimmons>lothar: Run as "ybin -v", determine what is failing.

11:42<lothar>I try to add the multiboot capabilities, but don't cope with that. ybin seems to remove my macosx=/devhdX entry.

14:44<nomad_cz>Hi. is package marked as hold meant to be upgraded ?
14:44<themill>no, that's the meaning of "hold"
14:45<ranix>I believe packages are held if upgrading them would break a higher-priority package
14:45<ranix>if it is a dependency
14:45<nomad_cz>themill: then it doesn't work. I tried aptitud hold name, echo name hold | dpkg -set-selectios - yet it wants to upgrade :/

15:41<snogglethorpe>mordy: there seem to be some other packages in debian which use the same protocol
15:41<mordy>snogglethorpe - but i need oen that uses persisting sessions
15:42<mordy>i don't know why it should be so hard to find it in debian or in linux in general - it's been around in windows since 2k
15:42<snogglethorpe>what is a "persisting session"?
15:42<mordy>i gave xrdp a try - (even though my intended server is etch, not lenny, but i would have considered lenny) bt it didn't work
15:43<mordy>snogglethorpe - a persisting session means that if the client computer is disconnected, the session is still stored on the terminal
15:43<snogglethorpe>mordy: just by grepping around, "qtnx", "nxproxy", etc turned up
15:43<mordy>yeah, but they're all part of the same *nx mumbo-jumbo - maybe i should just use nxserver
15:43<snogglethorpe>also maybe "libnxcl-bin"
15:43<snogglethorpe>mordy: maybe so, I dunno

17:56<Bladesman>if /boot is left empty from the install disk, keep running install packages until it's put back.

20:35<maxb>Hi, I wonder if anyone can help with this:
20:35<maxb>I'm trying to make a .deb package that gets triggered (deb-triggers) when a JVM package is *configured*. Unfortunately I can't see any way to do this which doesn't involve hardcoding full filenames to conffiles as my trigger interests - which means I have to declare, for example sun-java5, sun-java6, ia32-sun-java5, etc, separately. Ideally I'd like to take advantage of the fact that all JVM packages install files into /usr/lib/jvm/ .

21:34<chealer>ircMonkey: maybe xrandr, then, but should have the same information as what you'll find in X's log or in kcontrol.
21:34<dpkg>If you have a question, just ask! For example: "I have a problem with ___; I'm running Debian version ___. when I try to do ___ I get the following output ___. I expected it to do ___." Don't ask if you can ask, or if anyone uses it, or pick one person to ask (ask the whole channel!). We're all volunteers; make it easy for us to help you. If you don't get an answer, ask later or ask

Because when I write apt-get --purge remove apache2, I says that just the apache2 package will be removed, but I want to remove the packages that was needed when I istalled apache2, such as lib and so on

21:42-!-mais [] has joined #debian
21:42<chealer>Kevin1: APT 0.6 doesn't support that. you'd need to use lenny or aptitude.

21:44<Kevin1>Chealer: Okey, do you know when a netinst come for the unstable version? and how do I use aptitude
21:45<chealer>Kevin1: no, there will not be a netinst for unstable. lenny is testing. aptitude is a command-line program provided by the aptitude package.
21:45<ircMonkey>chealer: there is someting looking like what I have here but it is on fedoral. Do you thing it could be the sasme?
21:46<Kevin1>chealer: Well, how am I going to get a newer version of apt then :S , Okey but how do I use aptitude to remove the other packages?

21:48-!-massmc [~massmc@] has joined #debian
21:49<chealer>Kevin1: lenny has APT 0.7, so you can upgrade to lenny or wait until it's stable. aptitude is an APT front-end which sometimes tries to be smarter than APT. if you only use aptitude (no other APT front-end), you'll get some advantages such as what you are asking about.
21:51<newsense>whatll happen if ya use aptitude and say synaptic together ? i dont but just curious
21:51<Kevin1>Chealer: Thanks alot, but I have a question. I installed the netinst on my server yesterday, I just have the basic system and SSH right now, Don't got a GUI or something just bash ( console ). If I upgrade to lenny Will I get just the dist upgrades or will I have like, A GUI like gnome or KDE and games and all that unnessesary junk?

22:00<chealer>newsense: in pre-lenny versions, you may lose aptitude-specific features (for example, aptitude wouldn't remove apache2.2-common when removing apache2 if apache2 was installed by synaptic) or, in the worst case, aptitude may propose bad solutions.
22:01<xbj9000>if I can't get my ram usage to go past 188MB with heavy multitasking, is there any reason for me to have more than 192MB RAM total?
22:01<chealer>Kevin1: if you just dist-upgrade, you'll just upgrade. desktop environments are optional in both etch and lenny.
22:01<abrotman>xbj9000: are you swapping ?
22:02<xbj9000>I have 256MB RAM and 256 swap
22:02<abrotman>xbj9000: are you using swap ?
22:02<xbj9000>swap usage isn't going past about 9mb
22:02<xbj9000>the CPU is only 300mhz and I dunno if it's even capable of using all my ram
22:03<dondelelcaro>xbj9000: there's always a reason to have more ram
22:04<ircMonkey>chealer: well considering the bug from fedora and the 476143 bug from debian, the nv the nv driver seems to have problem with finding the write specifications of the monitor.
22:04<dondelelcaro>xbj9000: first and formost is caching
22:04<xbj9000>well I wouldn't normally even consider removing ram
22:04<xbj9000>but it's an old laptop with only 4GB hard drive space total
22:05<ircMonkey>chealer: but I can't keep dealing with it right now, I have to go; however thank for your help :)
22:05<xbj9000>and swap has to be equal to ram for suspend functions
22:05<dondelelcaro>xbj9000: not necessarily, actually.

22:06<dondelelcaro>xbj9000: the swap just has to be big enough to fit the contents of memory; usually that means equal to ram, but it's not necessarily the case
22:07<xbj9000>so if I never use more than 188, 192 swap would be enough for suspend?
22:08<Kevin1>Chealer: Okey, so if I do an dist-upgrade from my system now, I just upgrade all things that I've have installed now? I will not get anything new?
22:08<dondelelcaro>but if you're really worried about it, get a bigger drive.

Now I'm thinking of upgrade so I get the new apt version but not really sure if it is like I think it is. If I upgrade from ench to lenny will it just upgrade the things I have installed or will I get other junk packages, such as games,Office,GUI and so on.
