01:44<hachi>is there an easy way to provide multiple platform netboot images on a network with the debian configs?
01:44<hachi>the docs only cover doing a single platform
01:44<hachi>I guess there are only two possible choices anyways
01:45-!-Rat409 [] has joined #debian
01:45-!-db [] has joined #debian
01:45<Syntax>good question
01:46-!-davi [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
01:46<Syntax>not that I know of
01:46<Syntax>the tftp server will present the boot image
01:46<Syntax>you can probably segregate it between subnets
01:46<hachi>well, I mean more like... a menu choice
01:47<Syntax>not happening
01:47<hachi>so I can choose x86 or x86_64 at boot time
01:47<Syntax>the tftp server decides what is pushed out
01:47<hachi>since they can use the same pxelinux, and the same menu structure
01:47<gsimmons>hachi: Sure. You can set up a boot menu via PXELINUX, pointing to the relevant Debian netboot images (with approriate kernel/initrd options, etc).
01:47<Syntax>gsimmons: for bootp?
01:48<Syntax>I think he means bootp
01:48<Syntax>hachi: bootp or netboot?
01:48<hachi>bootp... gsimmons said pxelinux
01:48<hachi>they're both present in the tftp boot process
01:49<hachi>or arguably DHCP, but whatever...
01:49<Syntax>I stand corrected, then
01:49<Syntax>if you have a choice, then you're good
01:49<Syntax>I never saw that, though
01:49<Syntax>and my experience with bootp installations is very minimal
01:50-!-curado_ [~curado@] has joined #debian
01:50<Syntax>so you can get a boot menu in bootp installations?
01:51<hachi>I know you've been able to for at least two years now
01:51<Syntax>probably so, it's not something I do often
01:51<Syntax>and not with multiple platforms
01:51<jm_>new version of syslinux does has the option of automatically selecting 32bit or 64bit kernel
01:52-!-oahong [~oahong@] has quit [Quit: 工作工作]
01:52<Syntax>jm_: which ver?
01:52<hachi>jm_: I'll read up on that
01:52<hachi>I had no idea there would be an auto-picker... that would be even better :)
01:52<jm_>Syntax: the latest
01:53<jm_>and apparently they have LUA module in development for scripting - not bad, maybe syslinux will become a better choice than GRUB2 :P
01:54<jm_>ahh no grub2 will have scripting too
01:54-!-jayaund [] has joined #debian
01:54<hachi>grub2 is actually kinda shiney to me
01:54-!-jayaund [] has left #debian []
01:54<hachi>I've already got it going on a few machines
01:54<jm_>i'm an idiot, it already has scripting, i remember the tests in debian config files to use gfx module
01:55<jm_>but it's rather minimalistic

02:02<hachi>jm_: sorry to bug you, but do you happen to know the picker? I'm not seeing it in the docs here
02:03<hachi>I do see how it says it has the feature
02:03-!-noflash [noflash@2001:5c0:8fff:ffff:8000:0:cda7:61ee] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
02:04<hachi>oh, it's a module of some kind
02:04<jm_>hachi: not really, I just read the changelog - I suppose reading the source code would shed some light on it
02:04<hachi>yeah, I'm doing that already, found more clues than the docs

02:54<reggae>hi guys, i need to get my usb wifi work on my ibook with debian lenny used to work, but not after i reinstalled the whole system (infact i followed all the instruction correctly), and still no using a dlink dwa110 which uses ralink rt73 chipset....

03:19-!-ccube [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
03:19<gsimmons>reggae: FYI, you can skip "make load". You know that rt73usb is the desired module, "modprobe -r rt73usb; modprobe rt73usb" after the "make install" step will suffice. You will also need to pastebin your dmesg output.

03:45<Zoup>do you know any music player with remote api ?
03:45<reggae_>i used that earlier...but notworking now
03:46<jm_>what should remote api do?
03:46<gsimmons>reggae_: IIRC, the 2008-06-25 build worked for you (WRT 2.6.24) when you did this back in June. Wait until I'm done with this recent build.
03:46<rgnr>is it ok to upgrade to lenny?
03:46-!-Ash [] has left #debian []

03:49<Zoup>jm_: unfortunately its not console based
03:49<jm_>Zoup: uhm xmms2d has no gui at all, it's just a daemon so yes it very much runs on console

04:24<gsimmons>reggae_: You've somehow botched your rt2x00 modules. Remove the /lib/modules/2.6.25-2-powerpc/updates directory. Assuming your previous application of the serialmonkey sources overwrote the kernel-supplied rt2x00 modules, reinstall the 'linux-image-2.6.25-2-powerpc' package. Remove and reinsert the rt73usb module.

04:37-!-MrAzhax [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]

05:04<gsimmons>reggae_: Oh sure. Because this obviously worked for you the last eight times.

05:06<reggae_>gsimmons: lol....ok so its "modprobe -v rt73"
05:07<gsimmons>reggae_: No, the module's name is "rt73usb". You may want to make a note of this.
05:08<buffoon>is it dangerous to move a partition from the middle to the beginning?

I read that /etc/hosts doesn't support wildcards, but surely there is a simpler solution than running a full local DNS server just to make *.marvin point to

05:45<eddieB>iceweasel opens for a split second then closes

"/msg dpkg wpa" if you want to connect to a WPA/WPA2-protected network.

06:20<aniki>like .. it wont even show as mounted when i use mount. the hdd spins so i know SOMETHING is trying to access it, although the autoloaders for exchangable datasystems have been turned off ... so .. how on earth would i even NAME this usb or what would i even look for ?!

06:26<gsimmons>reggae: np. The original Apple AirPort cards use the Hermes chipset and thus a different driver (airport, part of orinoco). These drivers are included with the kernel, no firmware needs to be provided. You can configure an AirPort using iwconfig/ifupdown similarly to your rt73-based device, but the orinoco drivers aren't WPA-capable (although patches for this are in orinoco-devel).
06:27<jm_>eddieB: possibly, it has -depth switch but it's only useful in certain cases
06:28<eddieB>jm_: okay, i'll try that. but i'm not sure how. i'm looking through options but i don't see where i'd input that
06:28<jm_>eddieB: vncviewer -d 24 host or somesuch

06:29-!-Holborn [] has joined #debian
06:29<reggae>gsimmons: so airport card and my dlink doesnt need anymore firmware like i say previously (compat-wireless & ralink source), as everything is included in the new kernel that debian lenny provided..?
06:30<KammyDoe>jm_: why not?
06:30<jm_>!tell KammyDoe -about experimental
06:31<themill>KammyDoe: if you have to ask, you shouldn't
06:31<KammyDoe>I meant, what was the URL.
06:32<aniki>and parted says that dev/sda1 /where usually those usb drives connect to cant be opened due to an incorrect disklabel
06:32<gsimmons>reggae: That's correct. The drivers to support both devices are already provided in the Debian stock 2.6.25 kernel. You just need to provide firmware for your D-Link DWA-110 ('firmware-ralink' package), then configure the devices as necessary.
06:32<themill>KammyDoe: think of it as a test of your self-sufficiency.... if you can't find that out yourself then you're not going to be able to solve the problems that experimental brings, are you?
06:32<eddieB>jm_: i'm still lost. when i type "vncviewer -d 24" i get "vncviewer: command not found"
06:32<jm_>eddieB: so you're not starting vnc viewer on debian?
06:33<KammyDoe>eddieB: then you don't have vncviewer...
06:33<jm_>eddieB: ahh try xvncviewer
06:33<reggae>gsimmons: this calls for celebration ;)
06:33<eddieB>jm_: same, command not found

06:34<reggae>gsimmons: nope, n never ;)
06:35<jm_>eddieB: well wherever you start vnc viewer - if it's a mac, it's probably some gui thing

08:38<cmot>Should "icmp redirect" basically Just Work(tm) or are there traps?
08:38<cmot>I have a network where one part is unfortunately behind a different router than the default router.
08:39<cmot>... but distributing routing tables to all devices is a pain, so the default router basically is set up to route traffic to that additional network to the correct router.
08:39<cmot>as far as I understand, it does then issue icmp redirect messages.

10:27<themill>jthomas: Normally, of course, you can't mix releases like that, but for the case of testing/unstable you often can get away with it and for this particular package, that's the intended way of doing things as it's not a package that can actually be released in a stable release (like the flashplugin package)
10:28<themill>jthomas: You may need to manually install a couple of dependencies though if you do it that way.
10:29<jthomas>um so... thanks for that link above, but where do i download this from??

11:22-!-reggae [] has left #debian []
11:24<Hydroxide>erKURITA: no, it does protect against a man-in-the-middle attack or compromised debian-multimedia server with valid packages that have been tampered with by someone other than the repository maintainer
11:25<Hydroxide>erKURITA: package can be valid whether or not they're in a repository signed by a known key
11:25<erKURITA>that's my point exactly
11:25<Hydroxide>erKURITA: but if they're tampered with by someone other than the debian-multimedia guy, and a debian-multimedia server tries to send it to him, apt will warn him
11:26<Hydroxide>erKURITA: the package will still be valid but it won't be trusted.
11:26-!-Lethalman [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
11:26<Hydroxide>erKURITA: important difference there

11:28<Hydroxide>rgnr: and then install the debian-multimedia-keyring package to allow for graceful transitions if they ever change the key
11:28<Hydroxide>themill: only once you have the key installed - that package can't be trusted either until you have the key
11:28<themill>the package can be trusted just as much as can be trusted
11:29<Hydroxide>themill: depends on whether you get it from or a mirror, I guess
11:29-!-jthomas [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
11:29<themill>very true
11:29<Hydroxide>themill: I generally use a mirror myself, so there is a trust difference
11:29<Hydroxide>themill: (the again, I also verified christian marillat's key against the deban keyring using gpg, and I do have lots of trust paths into the debian web of trust, etc.

11:30<gelinas>For the record (assuming this IRC channel is logged): Regarding how to install entire package collections from a 40mb miniroot installation at a root shell: Just run dselect and select the collections of packages you want. It was pretty easy.

11:33-!-shogunx [] has joined #debian
11:34<gelinas>Hydroxide: No. I don't mean tasksel because I didn't know about it. I know that dselect is ancient because it was the only way to install Debian way back in the mid 1990s. I remember those days. Anyway, I asked a question, didn't get a response, and tried to find my own solution. That was the best I could find at the time.
11:34<Hydroxide>gelinas: okay then. trying to find your own solution is a great way to learn, so congrats!
11:35<gelinas>Hydroxide: However, now that I have tasksel up and running - you're right. That is *exactly* what I need. Thank you very much.

16:06<gpb>tetrimino: i don't know what could be the problem... perhaps the exact type of your soundcard? perhaps too slow comp... perhaps buggy driver

16:06-!-rgnr [] has quit [Quit: ChatZilla 0.9.83 [Firefox]]
16:06<tetrimino>i dont know where to get details..

16:06<tetrimino>it ran smooth in ubuntu
16:06<gpb>lspci | grep -i sound
16:07<amphi>or grep -i audio
16:07<gpb>you use etch? lenny? sid?
16:07<gpb>or potato? ;-)
16:07<gpb>ok, then it can be a rather old driver
16:07<gpb>and/or kernel
16:08<gpb>ubuntu tries to be cutting edge (sometimes cutting the user this way)
16:08<gpb>etch is *stable*, and now 1.5 years old or so
16:08<erKURITA>gpb nah
16:08<erKURITA>they don't
16:08<gpb>relative to debian?
16:08<tetrimino>i just thought i should support debian since ubuntu was build upon it
16:09<gpb>try testing
16:09<tetrimino>it froze on grep -i audio
16:09<gpb>current testing will soon be the new stable
16:09<gpb>it didn't freeze... :)
16:09<tetrimino>no its working :D
16:09<gpb>just use Ctrl-D
16:09<erKURITA>gpb not even close
16:09<erKURITA>Debian fixes the bugs as soon as possible, Ubuntu on their releases
16:10<tetrimino>so i should try lenny?

16:58<sander_m>Hi all. I'm testing out Lenny on my new box, using the Lenny beta2 installer. All goes well and now it wants to install a bootloader, but it wants to install Lilo. Any reasons why it won't do grub?
16:59<aptituz>sander_m: some setups require lilo and therefore cause d-i to choose lilo
17:00<sander_m>aptituz: The only fancy thing I'm trying to do is LVM (and trying to put /boot on LVM as well, in a separate volume). IIRC Lenny uses Grub2. It should be able to do this, no?

17:05<xanonus>I mean grub 0.97-x
17:05<sander_m>aptituz: I know for sure that grub2 does /boot on LVM. I'm just not sure that the debian installer knows about it too (or perhaps the installer only does grub legacy and lilo, not grub2)
17:05<sander_m>xanonus: Thanks

18:05<stricken>great good to know thanks
18:05<stricken>i have a question..
18:05<witte>stricken: but there are only volunteers here, so it could be that your question is not answered directly...
18:06<stricken>Since i just installed debian last night through to this morning, im complete novice to any linux/unix machines im used to windows and i was wondering how to configure a firewall
18:06<dpkg>firewall is probably a boundary (usually a computer or network apliance) between your private network and the public internet. see gibraltar, or a firewall can't protect the computer it's running on, or check out for an iptables-based firewall with built-in ssh brute force protection
18:06<stricken>also i wasnt sure if i needed an antivirus i have been reading alot on forums and aloads of users dont use antivirus on linux
18:06<dpkg>rumour has it, antivirus is a class of programs for detecting viruses. There is a free for private/non-commercial use antivirus under
18:07<witte>ah, both are not really usefull
18:07<witte>for the firewall, you could have a look at the guarddog program
18:07-!-mordy_ [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
18:08*schlurchz thinks a well configured desktop doesn't really need a firewall
18:08<witte>for the virus scanner, there are linux virusses (i believe 10 or so) and there are linux virus scanners (but they serve mostly scanning mail servers for windows mails if i am correct)
18:09<schlurchz>stricken: forget about these sorrows from the windows world.
18:09<witte>schlurchz: I also believe that, but i am not sure. In any case, all my pc's are behind a hardware firewall, so i don't care anyhow
18:09<schlurchz>shut down services, and be done with that.
18:09<stricken>i heard hardware firewalls are good
18:09-!-mps [] has joined #debian
18:10<witte>stricken: any firewall is as good as its configuration
18:10<stricken>im not intrested in antivirus programs becuase i dont think it would serve me any purpose personally
18:10<Tarcas>Hardware firewalls are more sure, since traffic is blocked before it ever reaches a vulnerable device.

18:10<newsense>remove inetd nis nfs-common if not needed
18:10<sejje>stevecotton: fyi, i've done a lot of googling and determined that your first remedy was best for my wireless delay. since i still have problems, it's likely a driver problem
18:11<witte>if you use a firewall/router of let's say d-link, and you use the default password and the username, + you make it accessible from outside, you have only false security
18:11<sejje>stevecotton: which is doubly likely because i'm using a hacked driver through ndis.

18:11<stricken>i dont have a clue about linux commands how to achieve what i want it to do so takes me alot of reading how to do 1 simple thing lol
18:12<Tarcas>My firewall is a script that sets up functions to invoke iptables commands to block or NAT based on a series of rules. Though the script is about 7.8k (hand-typed, mind you) it's probably shorter than the commands to simply set the firewall rules individually.
18:13<stricken>any suggestions what is the best free firewall for beginners? easy to configure etc
18:13<stricken>i dont think i have any
18:13<Tarcas>witte: I'm referring to a real firewall that you configure, not a "black box" that you just drop in. Yes you can configure the D-link, but if you don't, it's almost useless. And FYI, I believe most of them come set to only accept config changes from inside by default.
18:13<stricken>how would i find out if i have a firewall already on this os?
18:13<witte>stricken: type 'apt-cache search firewall'
18:14-!-grzechu [] has joined #debian
18:14<Tarcas>iptables -L will list all the rules in all your tables.
18:14<witte>Tarcas: yes of course, that was my point, if you configure them incorrect, you have trouble. And you are right, the default is to disallow connections to the router from outside (which is sensible), but you never know what people do...

18:17<newsense>debian is more stable/secure !
18:17<grzechu>because i want something new, any change
18:17<newsense>debian is just as easy to setup
18:17<witte>stricken: i do not really understand that sentence, just open a terminal in your gui, and type it there
18:18<grzechu>and what about programming on debian?
18:18<stricken>sorry im still new to how to execute commands :/ not sure exactly where. i will try find the terminal
18:18<marc_>I haven't used Ubuntu, so I don't have personal experience, from what I read out of the box Ubuntu has better hardware support
18:18<schlurchz>grzechu: with Debian, you either have to run testing/unstable (probably not what you want), or stick with stable for years (most people don't want that either)
18:19<schlurchz>grzechu: great system, but that's a big disadvantage.

18:19<witte>grzechu: debian gives you more control
18:19<jamesdean>can i have two different ips (different subnets/gateways) use the same interface?
18:19-!-AnglaChel [] has joined #debian
18:20<marc_>Lenny was just frozen
18:20<marc_>the stable is about to be new
18:20<xanonus>for two months a little update to etch was released
18:20<ansgar>jamesdean: use eth0:0, eth0:1 and so on for additional IPs
18:20<witte>grzechu: debian stable is very stable (no changes) and that remains for a long time (ideal for servers)
18:21<marc_>I use testing without any issues and it seems to support everything I need to do while still offering the stability I want
18:21<jamesdean>ansgar: i thought that only worked for same subnet. no?
18:21<grzechu>wikipedia says that last stable release was: july, 26 2008
18:21<marc_>I think I'd recommend the testing release
18:21<witte>grzechu: testing and unstable are updated more, and are comparable in security with ubuntu...
18:21<marc_>At least assuming this is a daily use computer you are installing to
18:21<maxb>testing is the way to go *if* you are willing to deal with very occasional problems
18:21<erKURITA>grzechu that's 4.0_r4
18:21<witte>grzechu: that last release was only bugfixes, no new packages i think
18:21<maxb>and are willing to upgrade very often
18:22<witte>maxb: that all depends on the user
18:22<erKURITA>which isn't really a stable release
18:22<ansgar>jamesdean: I see no reason why it should be limited the the same subnet.
18:22<witte>maxb: a user that wants a stable that remains how it is (server or if you need to do some work on it) wants etch
18:23<maxb>Agree. If you need absolute stability, you need the actual current 'stable' distribution

18:23<schlurchz>I would recommend the switch to Debian only for technically inclined people.

18:25<stricken>yes so i dont go installing another firewall if i already have one
18:25<schlurchz>witte: well, I don't know. I started with Debian as my first distro, and found it pretty hard. But things may have changed, of course
18:25<witte>amphi: you mean install debian for users who never used linux
18:26<witte>well yes, i as well, but i was the backup, and used a lot for that :-)
18:26<newsense>i believe distrowatch said debian was aimed twords users of a medium undertstanding of linux or something like that
18:26<witte>schlurchz: it is not as newby friendly as ubuntu, but if you select desktop at install, you certainly get a working system which does most of the things you would like

18:35<stricken>i installed it myself
18:35<Tarcas>schlurchz: I think you're right. Debian defaults to a pretty generic install. I don't think it has anything for a firewall by default, though there are packages available.
18:36<schlurchz>The point is, there is no need for a firewall. :-)
18:36<stricken>i was wanting to know so i didnt install a firewall if i already had one lol
18:36<stricken>why schlurch
18:36<schlurchz>stricken: finding if there is a firewall active is easy.
18:36<stricken>its best to be secure as possible
18:37<schlurchz>stricken: type 'iptables -L INPUT' in a terminal, as root.
18:37<schlurchz>but I guess you may even not have iptables :-)
18:37<Tarcas>netstat -an|grep LISTEN
18:37<Tarcas>Block off any ports that are listening. :-)
18:38<witte>stricken: i think there is only one firewall in linux, which is iptables (or that is at least the most known)
18:38-!-chattr [] has joined #debian
18:38<witte>stricken: all other firewalls are frontends to iptables
18:38<stricken>wow says about 20 things listening
18:38<stricken>is that bad
18:38<Tarcas>witte: There is still ipchains, but the chains hang from the tables, so to speak.

18:38<witte>Tarcas: right, forgot about that, but ipchains is old-school firewall, right?
18:39<Tarcas>stricken: Probably not, but you should know what they are.
18:39<newsense>stricken: most are most likely unix domain sockets
18:39<Tarcas>ipchains predates iptables. iptables basically uses multiple chains to create a more robust series of rules.
18:39<stricken>no i dont know all gobby goop to me lol
18:39<newsense>local programs
18:40<stricken>well most say /tmp

18:42<dpkg>it has been said that telnet is an old protocol for remotely logging in to another computer. It is one of the basic utilities for TCP/IP. It is very insecure as it sends all traffic in plaintext! Seriously consider using <ssh> instead. see telnet-ssl, this one has encryption and certificates support (but that's useless without a remote telnetd-ssl except to play and telnet to an https web server)
18:42<Tarcas>what's lsof -i do, exaclty, schlurchz? I haven't seen that one.
18:42<stricken>i just need alot more experience with linux first

18:43-!-Sindacious [] has joined #debian
18:44<Tarcas>stricken, I agree with witte. Stay away from telnet, use SSH instead. Same functionality, but you gain encryption.
18:45<Tarcas>Install the telnet client (maybe) but not the server, and remember every time you use it that even if you can't read it on the screen, anyone sniffing the line or the server can.
18:45<stricken>yeah i need to learn as much annonimity as possible which is why i made the step to linux then i will learn how to encrypt my communications over networks and also i want to learn ssh tunneling etc
18:45<stricken>so much to learn about many things

18:48<stricken>oh great
18:48<Tarcas>Read all the books you want, but you won't get beyond the beginner phase until you dig in and do it. "should work" is one thing, but you won't know how it works until you've troubleshot it a few times.
18:48<stricken>yep i will
18:49<stricken>i have many books here my bedroom is full of all sorts of stuff lol
18:49<witte>good thing is that you will have to troubleshoot real quickly anyhow, i'm sure of that
18:49<stricken>i need books to learn from i put into practice what i learn

19:06<witte>Giorgio: the dpkg line about lamp was for you btw
19:07<Giorgio>I know, but I have a large site made for PHP 4, so I need that until I managed to convert it
19:07<witte>Giorgio: the differences between installing php4 and php5 are small i think
19:07<dpkg>well, php4 security is pretty poor, judging by their trackrecord. Note that since php4 is being abandoned by upstream (php5 was released some years ago after all!), it has been removed from debian for lenny onwards. If an application still hasn't been updated to work with PHP5, then you probably don't want to use it anyway.

19:30<Giorgio>which is going to expire soon, so I want to move them to another server
19:30<ranix>Giorgio: does your registrar offer free DNS like mine does?
19:30<Giorgio>you mean that I can change it?
19:31<ranix>just point em where they need to go
19:31<ranix>you can run your own nameserver, I have never looked into it personally because the registrar I use offers free dns
19:31<ranix>no need to if your registrar's is stable

19:55<sejje>my video card
19:55<sejje>works with vesa, but not well.
19:55<enouf>lspci -nn | grep VGA
19:56<enouf>i would guess the Xorg 'intel' or 'i810' driver, if that's what you mean
19:56<cesurasean>I've played with two jumpers. One wouldn't show video when I changed it, so I changed it back. The other one reset CMOS.
19:56<cesurasean>so, I have it into bios right now.
19:56<sejje>i810 didn't work
19:56<sejje>but i haven't tried intel

20:15<sejje>enouf: restarting x to use new driver
20:15<cesurasean>1 cmos, 1 that doesn't do shit but mess up the video, and then 2 near the back of the board near the USB

20:29<cesurasean>enouf: I have the mepis cd, and I also grabbed a PCI ATA controller card which has a bois on it. So once I put that card in, I should know if the pci slots are not working like they should. :P
20:29<cesurasean>give me a few moments please, and don't run away.
20:29<enouf>sejje: do that - many of us get AIGLX errors ;-) not a prob for many
20:29<enouf>cesurasean: ok, slow down too :-P
20:30<sejje>enouf: do what? i don't think it's a problem, i just wanted to stop getting stuck with no console--i think it's sufficient as-is now.

20:31<cesurasean>should I call my ISP? I'm able to ping them....
20:31<cesurasean>but pings were going bad at first, and now im able to ping fine
20:31<enouf>sejje: especially if it Just Works [tm] ;-)
20:31<cesurasean>connections issues, perhaps?
20:31<enouf>cesurasean: i asked you to slow down
20:32<cesurasean>ok, PCI is working fine
20:32<cesurasean>I got the bios to the ATA card
20:32<cesurasean>so the PCI slots are working...
20:32<cesurasean>it's a configuration issue, I am guessing....

20:36<amphi>enouf: nice - you just point at the page url, or do you need the <embed blah> one
20:36<cesurasean>calling ISP now to ask them what's up with youtube. hopefully I wasn't blocked. :(
20:36<enouf>amphi: nope, just the script and the regular URL ;-)
20:37<cesurasean>I'll hunt down youtube if they blocked me. haha
20:37<enouf>amphi: check the factoid again ;-)

21:10<cesurasean>should I burn lenny and see if that one works?

23:22<newsense>cause youre running tor idiot
23:23<newsense>foxjazz is a !winner
23:23<foxjazz>well I am looking for how to find out if I am running tor
23:23<newsense>dam i dont know the dpkg trigger im thinking of
23:23<foxjazz>I know I shouldn't be
23:23<erKURITA>alright, I couldn't help checking back
23:23<newsense>hes an idiot
23:24<erKURITA>foxjazz if you would read the manual of the stuff you use, you would know that everytime you connect to TOR, it registers your IP on their IP pool for a certain time
23:24<newsense>ps -aux | grep tor
23:24<newsense>better yet killall -9 tor
23:24<erKURITA>and IRC networks retrieves those IPs to check wether the incomming connection is using TOR or not
23:25<erKURITA>which is lame, but that's the only way w/o invading your privacy (by retrieving process list, but then again you can change executable names....)
23:25<erKURITA>for starters, read:
23:26<erKURITA>and you don't even want to figure it out, reboot and connect back to the internet, that should get you a new IP which is not in TOR's IP pool
23:26<newsense>yeah listen to erKURITA i just took a glance at it and its what ya need if ya woulda listened to freenodes message ya woulda known that already
23:27<erKURITA>and for goodness sake, this is a Debian channel, not Ubuntu channel.
23:27<erKURITA>Regardless one's a distro made from the other
23:29<erKURITA>and now, I'm going to bed. I'm falling apart here.
