01:44-!-sysop [] has joined #debian
01:45<nicholas_>i've checked chkrootkit, all the various tmp directories, everything in /var/log and came up completely clean. Does anyone have any ideas for where I could look? Or if they know whether people like to run ircbots in ram entirely and rm the files off disk?

01:50<dondelelcaro>nicholas_: they wouldn't necessarily have left a rootkit
01:50<dondelelcaro>nicholas_: I'm assuming you've got the harddrive out of the machine and it isn't actually running, right?
01:50<nicholas_>right, of course. :)

01:52<nicholas_>and there's a *fascinating* log message from rpc.statd -- someone called gethostbyname with a binary blob
01:52<dondelelcaro>nicholas_: the first step is then to see what file's md5sums don't match the distributed values
01:53-!-nike [] has joined #debian
01:53-!-numayeah_ [] has joined #debian
01:53<nicholas_>good point. my live-cd doesn't have debsums, but i'll figure something out.
01:55<nicholas_>oh blimey. it's lenny/sid, not stable. :-(
01:56<qq>nicholas_: gethostbyname come from a nis domain , is nis installed ?
01:56<nicholas_>qq: no, i don't think so.
01:58<Kevin1>Can anyone explain how to use deborphan
02:00<qq>nicholas_: try cat /etc/domain or so, or ls /etc/yp[tab], cat /etc/netgroup
02:00<nicholas_>qq: none of those exist.

02:05<nicholas_>dondelelcaro: do you know any way to deal with prelinking? or do i just have to accept that i can't tell what sums are and aren't valid?

02:08-!-Kevin1 [] has left #debian []
02:08<dondelelcaro>nicholas_: huh?
02:09<dondelelcaro>nicholas_: prelinking has nothing to do with the md5sums being valid or invalid
02:09<nicholas_>dondelelcaro: 'prelink -a' was run on the box, that modifies all the binaries after installation.
02:09<dondelelcaro>uh... well, that was all kinds of stupid
02:09<nicholas_>sorry. i work with what i have :(
02:09<dondelelcaro>there's pretty much no way to tell then
02:10<dondelelcaro>unless you had aide or similar installed
02:10-!-OdyX [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
02:11<dondelelcaro>you could still conceivably figure it out by looking for things which were setuid, or specifically examining setuid/setgid binaries, configuration files, etc. but that's a ton of manual work
02:11-!-OdyX [] has joined #debian
02:12*nicholas_ nods.
02:12<nicholas_>i was hoping i'd find "/tmp/. ircb0t/binary" owned by www-data.www-data or something obvious :-(
02:13<nicholas_>alright. so lessons for next time: firewall. and no prelink.
02:14<dondelelcaro>you're also going to want things like chrootkit and aide or similar installed

02:40<nicholas_>dondelelcaro: is it enough to replace the bootloader and every un-md5-verifiable file on the disk? or do i *really* need a fresh reinstall?
02:40-!-lothar [] has joined #debian
02:41<lothar>Good mornig !
02:43<gsimmons>lothar: (re yaboot) Add a new line reading "macosx=/dev/hda2" to your /etc/yaboot.conf file, then run "ybin -v". In the event this isn't your actual Mac OS X boot partition, use /dev/hda3 instead. FYI, the partition type of /dev/hda5 is incorrect (should be "Linux native"). You may also want to define the "defaultos=" option as appropriate, if you desire to boot Mac OS X by default.
02:43<lothar>Ahh :-)
02:44<lothar>I have now a little more success, but Mac is not happy (the apple logo dissapears and a circle with a 'slash' comes up.
02:45-!-oahong [~oahong@] has joined #debian
02:46-!-andy [] has joined #debian
02:47-!-andy [] has left #debian []
02:47<lothar>Current configuration therefore is:
02:48<lothar>Also I have understood the bootsrtrap partition is for yaboot (/dev/hda2) itself ?
02:50<gsimmons>lothar: Huh? Wasn't yaboot previously installed in /dev/hda4? ( This is the 800K NewWorld bootblock you had set aside for it.
02:51<dondelelcaro>nicholas_: you really need a fresh reinstall
02:51<lothar>So it sounds I have killed my /dev/hda2 ?
02:51-!-jotun [~ioppo@] has joined #debian
02:52<dondelelcaro>nicholas_: you can re-introduce data and user stuff after sanitizing startup files, but after a compromise, you always start anew.
02:52<gsimmons>lothar: It is quite likely. You weren't required to change boot= if yaboot was previously installed and booting your Debian system.
02:53<nicholas_>dondelelcaro: *sigh* what about a ... non-destructive reinstall? reinstall debian from cd, but don't format the drive?
02:53<lothar>So my option now is to use Mac DVD to repair and set back boot=/dev/hda4 ?
02:53<nicholas_>dondelelcaro: i sense a "no" in my future ;)
02:53<dondelelcaro>nicholas_: the problem with that is that you have to go through absolutely everything and check it all.
02:53<dondelelcaro>nicholas_: that's virtually impossible to do
02:54<dondelelcaro>nicholas_: the general method is to image the drive, reinstall, and copy back data after checking it.
02:54<nicholas_>dondelelcaro: i wouldn't mind doing that if a) i could find all the user-added files on it and b) i could find evidence it was comprimised. ((and c), i were actually within 1000 miles of the machine.))
02:55<gsimmons>lothar: Yes, provided the Macintosh boot repair utility isn't lazy/stupid. You can also reinstall yaboot from a Debian installation CD in rescue mode (to /dev/hda4) in the event it is.
02:55<nicholas_>i guess what i want is kinda irrelevant. *sigh*
02:55-!-los7 [] has joined #debian
02:56<lothar>gsimmons: I never had made this. My longest experience is Windows, then SuSE Linux, then Mac OS X, then Solaris and least Debian PPC :-)
02:57<lothar>gsimmons: Is there afterwards an option to grab the partition with dd ?
02:58<gsimmons>lothar: I'm not sure what you're asking, but you can use dd to dump a partition to a file (and vice-versa).
02:58-!-franklin [] has left #debian [Leaving]
02:58<lothar>Ok, maybe for backup to have another option beside the apple boot repair.
02:59<lothar>My question may be simple. Put in the Apple DVD and boot with C and then utilize the menu to find the boot repair ?
03:00<newsense>is chrkrootkit any good or is there a better app for this ?
03:01<gsimmons>lothar: I've no idea about Apple's boot record recovery utilities. On G4 and some G3 systems, OpenFirmware itself has a graphical boot selector function (hold down the "Option" key during boot).
03:02-!-alephnull_______ is now known as alephnull
03:03<lothar>Ok, I will first set yaboot to hda4 and then try Apple DVD. To come into the OpenFirmware shell, I have got documentation :-)

04:47<themill>PHP will complain with E_NOTICE if you rely on $TZ anyway. As of PHP 5.1ish, you need to explicitly set the timezone from within PHP (through php.ini, apache->php directives or within the script).
04:48<themill>(err might be E_STRICT, not E_NOTICE)

04:54<caffn>Strange that your dhcp doesnt provide the right dns tough.

04:54<mordy>caffn - the network i'm using is static
04:54<caffn>Ah :)
04:54<caffn>Thats why you need to change it manually :D
04:55<mordy>caffn - i guess i need to restart networking yet again - since this isn't doing the trick - although the correct dns shows up in resolv.conf

04:58<mordy>maybe i should set up "Real" dns, so i won't need to use static ip
04:59<caffn>Yeah.. simpel dhcp-server with dns will do the trick
05:00<mordy>would be cool if i could run debian on my router - but i only have busybox there - dd-wrt
05:01<caffn>I dont even know what OS my router is running.. I'm using my debian-server as networkserver (dhcp, dns, fileserver)
05:02<mordy>i could set up my server to get an IP from ppp and then connect it to my AP's wan port?
05:02<caffn>Probably.. :P
05:02<mordy>hmm... but i only have one ethernet port :(

06:20<mordy>(the duplicate entry in route is new, after adding that second route)
06:20<petemc>why are you messing with routes?
06:21<petemc>your gateway is fine, as evidenced by the fact you can ping addresses outside of your network
06:21<caffn>Yeah.. He's right. But hey, it was worth a try :P
06:21<lothar>Is there any mac user chanel ?
06:21<lothar>I like to ask how to do a backup in installation console to my TREKSTOR drive. /tmp could not be used. tar has problems to stat there.
06:21<petemc>lothar: there should be an #osx channel on freenode
06:22<lothar> or the like ?
06:22<petemc>or .net
06:22<lothar>Ok, thanks.
06:22<caffn>Well, the duplicate route is indeed because we added the new one, so you might delete that one (route del..something)
06:23<caffn>Strange thing it still that your computer refuses to access the dns-server automatically.
06:24<mordy>i wonder if there's a way to check if the old dns server is still stuck in one of the configurations
06:24<petemc>theres no dns cache
06:24<petemc>unless you install one
06:24<petemc>whats in /etc/resolv.conf ?
06:25<mordy>in the paste output - but it's only the address of the dns server -
06:25<petemc>i havent really been following
06:26<petemc>does dig@ work?

06:30<kesrut>ok i have too bad experience with network-manager
06:31-!-pumpkin0 [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
06:31<mordy>well, but it works now; i wish these configuration files had the man pages *inside* them
06:31<mordy>or is there an option for that
06:31<petemc>thats not a great idea
06:31<kesrut>mordy, then you configure networks whink about such things: adapter address, gateway address, dns server address
06:31<caffn>Lol, so that was the problem
06:31<petemc>more complicated apps ofen comes with configs full of comments
06:32<mordy>petemc - but i usually never have trouble with those
06:32<caffn>My fault btw, about the resolv.conf :X
06:32<kesrut>even think about network subnetmask
06:33<mordy>it's mainly about screen real estate for me - i don't have a choice of having both the manpage and the config file open at the same time - and by the time i switch windows i've forgotten what the man pages said already

11:48<dpkg>i heard can't read iso from usb is when the debian installer is reading your target disk as the USB stick, usually due to some abnormal parition. backup the data to your USB stick (if you need data on the disk) by mount the target disk in busybox. Then dd if=/dev/zero of=<local HDD> and viola! it should work

12:21<mordy>TheDanny, you know how to work with syslinux?
12:21<TheDanny>No I sure don't- I'm pretty rusty and trying to get back into linux after a 10-year hiatus :)
12:22<mordy>the process is a fuzzy in my head from a windows installation, but first you'd need to make the disk bootable, then install syslinux on it as the bootloader, then edit syslinux.cfg to point it to the kernel
12:22<TheDanny>From what I understand, it is a hardware (open firmware maybe?) limitation that an apple mirrored doors g4 cannot boot from usb, only firewire - so installing off a usb stick isnt an option
12:22<TheDanny>unless someone can tell me otherwise

12:25<mordy>TheDanny, if doing a netinstall, then you may as well use PXE

12:26<TheDanny>okay- I'd rather do a pxe netinstall, yes.

12:29<mordy>TheDanny, all installations are pretty much similar in respect to syslinux
12:29<mordy>of course if you're booting from PXE, you'd want pxelinux - but that's just syslinux pxe version

12:30<mordy>TheDanny, i guess "yaboot" is the same as pxelinux -
12:31<mordy>just download all those files to your tftp root - and direct your tftp server to boot from "yaboot"
12:31<TheDanny>I thought yaboot was just a ppc bootloader for new world macs?
12:31<mordy>maybe it replaces pxelinux - i don't know much about macs
12:32<TheDanny>Sorry you lost me - why would I tell my tftp server to boot from somewhere?
12:32<TheDanny>i thought the tftp server is an daemon running on my windows pc
12:33<mordy>i don't know which server you use. i've used tftpd32 - gives you an option which file is the bootloader
12:33<mordy>or which file you want to load first
12:33<TheDanny>ah, I use somethign else- I thought all tftp's had the same functionality

12:38<TheDanny>I don't have macos unfortunately.
12:38<TheDanny>I don't have a lot of thigns I wish I had (like a cd burner!)
12:38<mordy>then he can worry about what should happen to the target disk
12:39<mordy>and download all the things here to your tftp root directory (you can specify that in tftpd32 by the "browse" button)
12:39<TheDanny>can I keep asking questions or should I move it to #debianppc ?

12:42<TheDanny>I'm sorry if I seem stupid - but most of the FAQs and how-to's are written assuming I already have a linux system working, not windows.
12:42<mordy>TheDanny - yes - but that section isn't focused on linux. but yes, it's true
12:42<TheDanny>qq_: is macos a factor in any way here? I don't have any functioning macs , and I do not have any mac os cd's

12:45<TheDanny>is not being able to write to a unix file system on my windows machine going to be an issue here?
12:45<TheDanny>this seems so simple yet so confusing to me
12:45<mordy>TheDanny, i didn't ahve any problems with it
12:45<mordy>TheDanny, just read that specific sub-section in the link
12:45<TheDanny>Is there a step by step guide for this? I've found a few, but they all assume I have a linux machine of my own, not windows.
12:46<mordy>TheDanny, IIRC the installation via windows is very simple. just copy the files to the tftp root directory and then it will boot from it. configure tftpd32 to boot from "yaboot-net", i guess
12:46<mordy>err.. i mean "yaboot"

13:12<TheDanny>I never saw too many random hardware failures outside of HDDs on macs, the way I would with other OEM pc brands. Rather, I'd see entire production series defects - if they released a product line or a production run with a HW issue, I'd see multiple machines in for the exact same reason. On the whole, if you manage to get a mac that doesnt have known production issues in its model, you usually have a very solid machine.

17:20<aigan>How do i create a dir there all files will have a set group and file permissions. ACL will only provide defaults. ext2 doesn not let you mount it with a set mode and owner like some other filesystems. Must I use samba in order to get files accessable for all users on a computer?

17:34<mordy>gizmokaka - it shouldn't present itself as a warranty issue if WD lets you disable or remove the software by yourself. but otherwise, i'd still suggest you return it, since it's simply cheaper to get a regular drive and a standard enclosure. works like a charm generally
17:34<gizmokaka>but why should i pay more money? i can simply ask the store to change for something that is compatible
17:34<mordy>but there should be a way to disable it
17:34<mordy>hehe, which store?
17:34<gizmokaka>yep but this drive is small and lite to carry
17:35<gizmokaka>i don't want one of these big boxes to carry around
17:35<keratacon>I want to make a windows partition on a system that is currently all one LVM setup. Can someone point me in the right direction?

18:24<witte>pelmon: or you do apt-get update, which will do a save upgrade of all the packages htat you have installed (so it will upgrade kde-base if you already have it)
18:25<witte>pelmon: or you do apt-get install kde-base, which will install the latest version of kde-base (and upgrade if it is already installed)

18:32<pelmon>not sure. i'll check
18:32<themill>witte: kpdf runs in a "watch file" mode so if you recompile the latex, it automatically refreshes for you
18:32<witte>client: it is very lightweight, apt-get install wmaker wmakerconf
18:32<pelmon>i'd like an application that does not use konqueror to view the file. i'd like it to run in a separate window
18:33<themill>pelmon: kpdf is a standalone viewer
18:33<themill>pelmon: I don't like the embedded viewer stuff either. I've disabled all of it.
18:33<pelmon>... ? why has it been opening in the konqueror?
18:33<witte>client: not that difficult but maybe not really for beginners (it is really different from windows)
18:33<witte>themill: ah thanks, will have a look at that
18:34<pelmon>you are right. if i right click and select open with kpdf it opens in it's own window. that's all i was going for
18:34<witte>themill: see if kpdf does not need too much kde stuff :-)
18:34<pelmon>how did you disable it?

19:08<dpkg>okay, themill
19:09<themill>tbrock: "netstat -pantu" will show you network connections. "ps axf" will show you all processes.
19:09<tbrock>but something closer to an rc-status in gentoo
19:09<tbrock>like a summary
19:09<themill>nfc what that does.
19:10<tbrock>say i type rc-status, it will say apache: started, mysql:started, sendmail: stopped
19:10<tbrock>for all rc scripts on the system
19:10<tbrock>is that really gentoo specific
19:11<tbrock>how do you ever know if apache is running, I'm a huge fan of debian for servers and have used it for a long time, but i saw this in gentoo and was curious

21:18<gsimmons>witte, Lanares: No, 'rt2500-source' is in main.

21:19<dantanna>sudo nano is safer
21:19<Lanares>witte: <insert unknown foreign language> is correct.
21:19<witte>Lanares: root terminal is also ok, or sudo nano

21:20<witte>Lanares: one second
21:20<witte>Lanares: can you connect that laptop to the net using a cable (just for now, it would make things much easier)
21:21<Lanares>I can just plug it in from my modem, I think. I'll try.
21:21<Lanares>Give me a second. I'm quite far away.
21:21*witte hopes modem is not 56k :-)

21:51<Nemoder>joedalton: perhaps your partitions or mount points are not configured properly?
21:51<witte>Lanares: ok, when you next try your laptop, try to configure your network, probably typing "dhclient eth0" should start your network

21:52<witte>and add this line: deb stable main contrib non-free
21:53<Nemoder>joedalton: just a hunch but it sounds like maybe it ran out of space on the drive
21:53<witte>replace us with your country code if you are not from that country

22:25<witte>Lanares: you still can not connect to the net? even after reboot?
22:25<witte>or where are you stuck?
22:25<witte>utjail: do you need to autoconnect do #debian?
22:25<Lanares>I run dhclient eth0 and it said there were "no working leases on this database" and didn't connect.
22:25<witte>utjail: if you are just testing
22:26<witte>Lanares: do you have a fixed ip set up at your place?
22:26<utjail>I'm deleting my config files to try and work out what makes it crash
22:27-!-insigne [] has joined #debian
22:27<utjail>good point, I could just do #test
22:27<witte>Lanares: ok, dhclient is "ask the dhcp server to give the network card an ip"
22:27<witte>utjail: :-)
22:27<Lanares>It's static, I think... if that's the same as fixed?
22:27-!-utjail [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
22:27<witte>Lanares: it is
22:28<Lanares>What do you suggest? Reboot and try again?
22:28-!-path [] has joined #debian
22:28<Lanares>I'm losing the will to live. Brother will just have to use Debian either without internet or reboot XP. That's if we know how to do that...
22:29<witte>Lanares: no, just set up the static ip, probably easiest using a graphical tool that is installed on your debian, you need to know the ip address
22:29<Lanares>As you've well established, I'm not that savvy with this.
22:30-!-insigne [] has quit []
22:30<witte>Lanares: it is all reasonably simple, it is just not so easy to grasp all the possibilities from this side :-)

22:30<Lanares>Nothing has worked yet though, lol.

22:31<witte>Lanares: i disagree, we know your card is a ralink 2500
22:31<Lanares>But that tells me absolutely nothing. :P
22:31<witte>we just need to get to the web with the cable, and we can install it with one command
22:32<witte>but it is 4:30 here, and i really need some sleep
22:32-!-AnglaChel [] has joined #debian
22:32<Nemoder>Lanares: you can edit /etc/network/interfaces to setup a static ip
22:32<witte>Nemoder: can you take over,
22:32-!-dasmaze [] has joined #debian
22:32<Nemoder>Lanares: or if you have gnome up then use the system/admin menu to configure the network in a gui

22:37<joedalton>no not the loopback
22:38<Nemoder>k 1sec
22:38<Nemoder>Lanares: what is the ip address you want to assign it?
22:38<Lanares>Nemoder: ...
22:39<Lanares>Nemoder: The one that will make it work. :D
22:39<Nemoder>Lanares: hmm ok how are you connected to the internet?

22:40<Lanares>Debian machine wired into nothing at the moment.
22:40<Lanares>Was wired into modem.
22:40-!-stevecotton [] has joined #debian
22:41<Nemoder>heh let me scroll up and see what i missed
22:42<Nemoder>looks like witte was trying to help you configure eth0 which is a wired interface
22:43<Lanares>Yeah, when I plug in the ethernet cable, I still can't connect to the internet.
22:43<Lanares>Nemoder: It says the connection has been established but loading a page fails.
22:44<Lanares>The problem is basically: I have no Add button to add a wireless LAN connection.
22:44<Nemoder>Lanares: I am guessing in order to download the wireless driver you need to have a wired connection working first
22:45<Lanares>Nemoder: I think I'm just going to call it quits though.
22:45<Nemoder>Lanares: what is the ip address of your windows machine?
22:45<Lanares> as it appears in Status when I right click on the taskbar.
22:46<Nemoder>Lanares: try this
22:47<Nemoder>Lanares: edit the interfaces file and add those 5 lines
22:48<Nemoder>I am just guessing at the addresses but hopefully it is right

22:49<Lanares>Nemoder: Is the address meant to be or typo?
22:49<Nemoder>Lanares: well you can't use the same one as your windows machine
22:49<Lanares>Oh, right, 'k. :)
22:49<Nemoder>Lanares: at least not while it is connected
22:49-!-cyt [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
22:50<Lanares>Nemoder: Seems to have saved it alright.
22:50<Nemoder>Lanares: once you have saved that file make sure the cable is plugged in and run: ifup eth0
22:50<Lanares>Nemoder: Alright, brb.
