00:07-!-scrouaf [] has joined #debian
00:07<qq>you said you have an accton , but maybe the chip is (8139too)'
00:07<qq>[06:07:00] <qq> hmmm
00:08<qq>so add "8139" to /etc/modules
00:09<qq>but 8139 work great here (all kernels)
00:10<kazagistar>currently, the only thing in /etc/modules is 'loop'
00:10<qq>[06:08:34] <

00:12<qq>do you have a router/modem ?
00:12<kazagistar>yeah, and it is working fine
00:13<qq>not sure me ...
00:13<serena>where u from?
00:13<qq>serena: ssssst !
00:13<dpkg>Damnit Jim! It's YOU. Y-O-U. Not *U*. U is a letter. YOU is a word. See ne1, or wud. Dutch for 'you' (formal singular). See
00:14<kazagistar>I have a wireless router with 4 ethernet jacks, and I have tested the cables and am hooked up with one now
00:14-!-Guest2938 [flash@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:14<kazagistar>and that is a very angry u bot
00:14<tcsetattr>you must have some kind of IP address if there was a DHCPACK in your log
00:15-!-sangi [~sangi@] has joined #debian
00:15-!-mansiq [~Junior@] has quit []
00:16<kazagistar>where would I see it? the only address in ifconfig is the one for loopback
00:17<qq>try eth1
00:18-!-nesoustredeny [~nesoustre@] has quit [Quit: dansk jävlar!]
00:18<kazagistar>erm... where all should I make changes?
00:18<tcsetattr>try grep dhclient /var/log/daemon.log
00:19<scrouaf>Hello, I''ve got a problem. I can't access the virtual consoles (ctrl+alt+Fn). I'm on testing, with latest nvidia drivers. My /etc/inittab appears to be pretty much the same as the one on my ubuntu, where it works fine. I'm using gnome. I can restart X (ctrl + alt + backspace). I can also access virtual consoles before X has started. Also, the problem is the same with or without compiz fusion running.
00:19-!-flash__ [flash@] has joined #debian
00:19-!-gsimmons [] has joined #debian
00:20<scrouaf>Any help would be much appreciated :)
00:20<kazagistar>hey, crazy, it says 'bound to -- renewal in 928229126 seconds'
00:21-!-p_quarles [] has joined #debian
00:21<tcsetattr>scrouaf, first check if there's a process running on tty1 (fuser -v /dev/tty1) - you can't switch to it if there's nothing there. (what should be there if you haven't logged in on it is a getty as specified by inittab)
00:22<scrouaf>tcsetattr, nope nothing there
00:22<scrouaf>probably the problem then :)
00:23<tcsetattr>in the inittab should be something like 1:2345:respawn:/sbin/getty 38400 tty1
00:23-!-clint1986 [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:23<kazagistar>but ifconfig continues to not have an ip
00:23<tcsetattr>oh you will need to be root for the fuser to be able to search all processes
00:23<scrouaf>oh, retrying then
00:23-!-[carpediem] [~alberto@] has quit [Quit: Saliendo]
00:23<qq>Kalessin: crazy, is that >>> 928229126 seconds !!!! to much time
00:24<scrouaf>yeah, getty is running
00:24<tcsetattr>30-year lease :)
00:24<kazagistar>oh, dang, I see, the logs are from yesterday
00:24-!-Woland_ [] has joined #debian
00:24-!-Woland [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
00:24<RIVE>Bye, i will read you tomorrow.
00:24-!-serena [] has left #debian []
00:24<kazagistar>wow, silly me, I guess then that no dhcp has worked at all
00:25<tcsetattr>scrouaf, next thing to try: run "chvt 1" as root. that should have the same effect as pressing ctrl-alt-F1 : a switch to the first VC
00:25-!-RIVE [~cesar@] has quit [Quit:]
00:25-!-Vif18 [~padma@] has joined #debian
00:25<scrouaf>this works
00:25<scrouaf>and i can come back to X
00:26-!-alvarez [] has joined #debian
00:26<tcsetattr>so it's just a keybinding problem... the switching functionality is there but the X server isn't doing it for you. it's possible to disable the ctrl-alt-F* keybindings in xorg.conf but I don't know why you'd have done that and then forgotten about it
00:27<tcsetattr>keyboard layout problem maybe? the F-keys work OK for other purposes?
00:27<scrouaf>F1 opens the help on gnome terminal so yes
00:27<scrouaf>it's something done explicitly right, not something i wouldn't see when reading my xorg.conf ?
00:28<tcsetattr>the option is called "DontVTSwitch"
00:29<scrouaf>nope, no such thing
00:32<kazagistar>right, I just finished testing something... I tried to use a lenny netinstall disk, and it also could not configure the network connection
00:33-!-freealan [] has joined #debian
00:34-!-simonrvn_ [] has joined #debian
00:34<tcsetattr>well I'm stumped on the VT switching; back to the DHCP
00:35<qq>kazagistar: restart all ( dhcp/router ) and reboot
00:35<scrouaf>thanks anyway :/
00:35<tcsetattr>kazagistar, you have the "iface eth0 inet dhcp" line in /etc/network/interfaces, right?
00:35-!-simonrvn is now known as Guest2943
00:35-!-simonrvn_ is now known as simonrvn
00:35<kazagistar>yes, I have the iface eth0 inet dhcp line, will return soon
00:36<tcsetattr>and you recently ran ifdown eth0 and ifup eth0, right?

00:41<scrouaf>and now it works
00:41<dmoerner>just goes to show, less is more in newer xorg...
00:41-!-rjc [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:42<scrouaf>oh well, thanks for your help, and thanks for the chvt trick, didn't know it ;)

00:45-!-Vif18 [~padma@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:45<kazagistar_>now I am finishing full rebooting everything (router, gateway, comp)
00:45-!-kazagistar_ is now known as kazagistar
00:46<kazagistar>nope, still failed
00:46-!-Vif18 [~padma@] has joined #debian
00:46<qq>kazagistar: than fil a bug repport
00:48-!-gusnan [] has joined #debian
00:48-!-grim_fandango [] has quit [Quit: Ex-Chat]
00:48<kazagistar>alright, I will file a bug report... thanks for your help
00:48-!-syntax [] has joined #debian
00:49<syntax>why does it take so long for the password prompt to show when initiating an ssh connection?
00:49-!-kop [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:49<syntax>oh crap, I forgot to troll first
00:50<syntax>I installed the Win 95 boot loader in place of lilo, and now I can only boot to windows. how do I fix it?
00:50<qq>syntax: it depends of processor target too
00:50<syntax>qq: amd64
00:50<syntax>is this a known issue?
00:50<qq>i dunno
00:51<syntax>one master node is a suse box and it doesn't have a problem like this
00:51<syntax>seems indigenous to the Debian boxes I've been using
00:51-!-LivingSouL [~Anonymous@] has joined #debian
00:51<dmoerner>syntax, re-run lilo from a rescue cd
00:51<syntax>dmoerner, I was kidding :-)
00:51<syntax>thanks though :-)
00:51<widrone>syntax: And their sshd config files / startup parameters are the same?
00:52<syntax>widrone, I have not checked that
00:52<syntax>I'll take a look now
00:52<LivingSouL>how do I change SSH port?
00:52<syntax>why would you want to?
00:52<widrone>syntax: Id feed that troll of yours a good grub.
00:52<dmoerner>so it's outside normal scanning ranges?
00:52<syntax>windrone: I hate grub
00:53<LivingSouL>syntax, to prevent scans...
00:53<dmoerner>LivingSouL, it's the fifth line in /etc/ssh/sshd_config
00:53<LivingSouL>didn't see any "port 22" there.. wait
00:53<syntax>LivingSouL, if a cracker is so determined, they'll scan all ports and get a login prompt at some point
00:53<widrone>LivingSouL: Its commented out, but should be there. And you can change it.
00:54<LivingSouL>i see
00:54<LivingSouL>but yea, just to prevent kiddies to scan on default port.. better that way :)
00:54<LivingSouL>widrone, thanks :)
00:55<LivingSouL>i thought it's ssh_config. never saw sshd_config :)
00:55-!-manel [~manel@] has joined #debian
00:55<qq> ssh_config is for client
00:55<dmoerner>LivingSouL, ssh_config is provided by openssh-client
00:56<LivingSouL>i see.. thanks guys
00:57-!-cahoot [~radix@] has joined #debian
00:57<LivingSouL>so no restart needed for this one?
00:57<tcsetattr>/etc/init.d/ssh restart
00:58<qq>but change attribute for /etc/password is more sure
00:58<qq>haw i forget ...
00:58-!-manel [~manel@] has quit []
00:59-!-Garda_ [~Garda@] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
01:01<LivingSouL>i can use any port numer right?
01:02<qq>make sure it is not used for other things
01:02<LivingSouL>cool :)
01:03<qq> cat /etc/services
01:03<qq> cat /etc/services |grep ssh
01:03<kazagistar>I have one more question... can I upgrade everything except kernel to lenny, and keep it etch?
01:03<qq>is a non sence
01:04<dmoerner>kazagistar, yes. upgrading to lenny will not actually remove your etch kernel, and it's easy to change the default back to 2.6.18 in /boot/grub/menu.lst
01:06<widrone>LivingSouL: netstat -l will show you what active serving ports you have atm too.
01:06<syntax>there are differences in the sshd_config. I'm looking them over now
01:08<widrone>syntax: Im thinking reverse dns too, but I think that usually shows after the login prompt. I had some machines use way too much time there before giving proper login prompt.
01:08<widrone>syntax: proper shell prompt I mean.
01:09<syntax>I'll check reverse dns now
01:10<qq>reverse dns ?
01:10<syntax>translating the IP to host
01:10<syntax>IRC servers do it on connect
01:10<syntax>er, when a client connects
01:11<HelpAttacked>where are all the commands typed in shell saved?
01:11<HelpAttacked>I need to save the file
01:11<syntax>I'm pretty sure that may be it. I don't have DNS records for these hosts
01:11-!-gusnan [] has quit [Quit: Lämnar]
01:11<syntax>HelpAttacked, history
01:11<HelpAttacked>syntax, where's that?
01:12<qq>.bash_ history
01:12-!-Exclamation [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
01:13<qq>cat .bash_history
01:13<syntax>you can get it just by typing history
01:13<HelpAttacked>oh, ok
01:13<HelpAttacked>is there a way to direct the cat content to a text edotor?
01:13<HelpAttacked>liek cat history | nano
01:13<HelpAttacked>does not really work, but you get the idea
01:14<qq>cat .bash_history > history
01:14<qq>nano/cat history
01:15<syntax>or dcp .bash_history history
01:15<syntax>er, cp
01:15<syntax>you won't see anything that begins with a . unless you ls -la
01:15-!-kanru [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
01:15<syntax>actually, ls -a
01:16<LivingSouL>shocked when connection refused came up... forgot about the iptables.. heh.. it's ok now. changed the port and it worked great. thank you dmoerner, widrone, tcsetattr, qq, syntax and everone :)
01:16<HelpAttacked>so nano / history then?

01:16-!-gL [~gl@] has quit []
01:16-!-talonIX [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
01:16<HelpAttacked>just need to place it in another file
01:16<syntax>either way works
01:17<syntax>np LivingSouL
01:17<HelpAttacked>nano / history does not palce history content in anno
01:17<qq>np LivingSouL

01:17-!-manel [~manel@] has joined #debian
01:17<syntax>HelpAttacked, I hate to sound like an arrogant fool, but I'd suggest you learn the basics of the VI editor
01:17<syntax>I'll be happy to help with that
01:17<HelpAttacked>:) yes please
01:18<syntax>the reason behind it is you'll always find the VI editor in almost any UNIX flavor
01:18<syntax>join me in #vi

01:21<dmoerner>HelpAttacked, :q
01:21<dmoerner>:q! if there are unsaved changex
01:22-!-lobao [~Humberto@] has quit [Quit: Ex-Chat]
01:22<HelpAttacked>I think I prefer nano
01:23-!-manel [~manel@] has joined #debian
01:23<deboodle>nfs: I've ALL:ALL in /etc/hosts.deny and nothing in /etc/hosts.allow yet clients can still mount an exported directory. Ideas?
01:23<LivingSouL>HelpAttacked, i prefer nano too, but you need to atleast know the basics of vi. It's available almost on all UNIX/Linux systems.

01:23-!-vaderr [] has quit [Quit: vaderr]
01:23<dmoerner>HelpAttacked, vim is 1000x times better once you get used to it, but it might not be worth the learning curve
01:24<HelpAttacked>is there a simple way to direct output in terminal to nano?
01:24<EmleyMoor>I use vim - did use elvis but found it a bit of a pig
01:24<HelpAttacked>seems like a simple task

01:25<LivingSouL>didn't know... all i know to exit vi is :x to exit and save and :q to quit or :q! to force quit without saving.
01:25<LivingSouL>better join #vi
01:26<dmoerner>ZZ, :wq, :x all write and exit
01:26<EmleyMoor>:q! is the origin of calling the ! "dammit"
01:26<LivingSouL>seriously, he has to learn the basics.. :D

02:51-!-nsadmin [~nsadmin@] has joined #debian
02:53<nsadmin>I'm trying to figure out generally how the /etc/modprobe.d and /etc/modules work together... specifically right now I want to load sound card modules in a particular order and at a particular index
02:53-!-sangi [~sangi@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
02:53<jm_>you should only need module options to specify which index sound card will get
02:54<nsadmin>on that machine I don't have a hda-intel, so I indeed would not need to set model=
02:54-!-rjc_ [] has quit [Quit: leaving]
02:55<nsadmin>ideally, where should I put module options?
02:56<nsadmin>I noticed a file has "install <somemod> " then a command (modprobe in every case)
02:56<nsadmin>is that right?
02:56<jm_>depends on what you want to achieve
02:58<nsadmin>initially learn... then, knowing enough to understand what I'm doing, load a particular sound card driver early but with index 1, and then the card I want for index 0
02:59<jm_>yeah that's easily doable
03:00<jm_>let me remember how it's done
03:01-!-jvandriel|away [] has joined #debian
03:01<nsadmin>since I want to have a basic understanding of how it works...

03:01-!-stroyan [~stroyan@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
03:01<nsadmin>I'd like to understand the format of the lines... first, they are different from lines in /etc/modules?
03:01<jm_>yes, modules is debian specific -- man modules
03:02-!-ruiping [ruiping@] has joined #debian
03:02<nsadmin>what is the file that's dist-independent?
03:02-!-Mr_Giraffe [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
03:02-!-stroyan [~stroyan@] has joined #debian
03:03<nsadmin>so according to that one-paragraph modules man page, I could put it there, and say snd-foo index=1
03:03<nsadmin>then snd-bar index=0
03:04-!-AbsintheSyringe [~absinthe@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
03:04<nsadmin>the /etc/modprobe.d/somefile is a different format and mechanism?
03:04-!-overflow_ [~overflow@] has joined #debian
03:05<jm_>indeed, man modprobe for that
03:06<nsadmin>and so the format of lines in a file in that dir, would be: install foo <command with args>?

03:22<nsadmin>is doing options lines in a particular order the way to specify the order they'd be loaded? or how would I do that?
03:23<jm_>nope, order shouldn't matter if you specify index for all sound modules you will load
03:24<nsadmin>but the index is not the same as the load order... a sound module I want loaded first would actually be index 1, while a "more normal" sound card loads later but is at index 0
03:25<nsadmin>it does matter due to a memory allocation issue I'm just now reading about

05:49<MartinVW>Is this expected behaviour that Recommends only work when initially installing and not when updating?

05:51-!-markus2 [] has joined #debian
05:51<MartinVW>These packages are not exactly required for the servers to work, they are more of the kind of 'nice to have' when we log in remotely to fix issues.
05:51<MartinVW>So I thought it would be not nice to force these packages onto customers - if they really want to, they should be able to remove that stuff.
05:52<weasel>make a meta package called local-stuff-nice-to-have
05:52<weasel>that depends on everything you would like to have
05:52<jm_>MartinVW: that behavior seems logical to me yes

05:54<markus2>Hey, i just wounder if it's possible to make a fake keyboard using STDIN, like "application < $some_sort_of_socket" and then i another shell do something like this to controll it,, "echo "key" > $some_sort_of_socket", if it is possible, could someone point me in the direction of doing this easy and effective?
05:54<weasel>are you looking for a named pipe?
05:54<MartinVW>yes, a nice-to-have meta package would be a solution, I guess. I will consider it if I really won't find a solution to fix the recommends :)

06:04-!-Garda [~Garda@] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
06:04<weasel>chances are your application behaves different when reading from pipes than when reading from a terminal.
06:04<weasel>there's more buffering going on in that case usually.
06:04<weasel>and you don't really send "key presses" around anyway.
06:04<weasel>what do you want to do anyway
06:05<jm_>markus2: you can also use apps like expect
06:05<jm_>perl also has expect module
06:07<markus2>weasel: hmm, okey,, I have build a htpc, and now trying to make a remote controll work, the methods they use for sending keypresses from the remote i think is pretty bad, and does'nt work so god.

06:08<markus2>Yes, using Dialog.. so the actual comman i was testing is Dialog hey 10 30 <mypipe
06:08<weasel>interesting problem.
06:09<MartinVW>OK, now I understand. If aptitude would always try to reinstall all recommends whenever my package got updated, customers would be able to remove recommended packages, but only until my package gets updated the next time. So the behaviour indeed makes sense.
06:10<jm_>no they could simply disable installation of recommends, no need to remove it after it's installed

06:45<Shadowdancer>aaah, fbcon
06:45<iammyr>bash is cotained in /bin
06:45<jm_>Shadowdancer: fbconf=font:foo
06:46<markus2>jm_: so thats does'nt work,, Should i give up the STDIN and piping idé to?.. or is there a chance that i works?
06:46<markus2>iammyr: you wanna look wath /bin/sh points at..
06:46<markus2>iammyr: i have this in mine,, lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 4 2008-08-19 20:06 sh -> dash
06:46<jm_>markus2: did you try starting dialog via irpty?

06:47<iammyr>ok..sorry :p
06:47<iammyr>so my shell is bash
06:47<jm_>iammyr: what is in line 4 of /etc/profile?
06:48<iammyr>this is the profile file that I've substituted with mine:;lines=0
06:48<iammyr>it's of a debian user and it works well for him
06:48<markus2>jm_: Yes, and the other entries work, like config 1, config 2, config \e.. so it is no wrong with the drivers, remote or something like that
06:48<jm_>change id to /usr/bin/id
06:49<jm_>markus2: well find the sequence you need to use and send that then
06:49<iammyr>jm_: so in line 4 there's: if [ "`id -u`" -eq 0 ]; then

08:28<ali3n0>Golfgeo, was thinking about bacula but I'm wondering if there's something less complex
08:28<Golfgeo>ali3n0: Then convert the home versions to pro, setup a domain server and enable roaming profiles...
08:28-!-Carlos_ [~carlos@] has quit [Quit: BitchX by any other name is still BitchX]
08:29<Golfgeo>ali3n0: Simple and fast, although you do need an extra server. But you can keep the fileserver running Debian that way...
08:29-!-kalpik [~kalpik@] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
08:29<ali3n0>Golfgeo, too much effort, just want to keep data redundancy
08:29<markus2>jm_: maybe not a bug,, but a limit in the application ?..Maybe a should download the sources for dialog and try to change the arrow keys to something like w a s d..
08:30<ali3n0>Golfgeo, maybe rsync
08:30<Golfgeo>ali3n0: As a System Administrator I would say that in the end this setup beats any other for the primary thing that matters, time spent on maintence...
08:30<Golfgeo>Crappy spelling again...
08:31<Golfgeo>ali3n0: Simple IT doesn't exist...
08:31<ali3n0>Golfgeo, rsync is :)
08:32<ali3n0>Golfgeo, not upgrading laptops to pro just for backing up
08:32-!-rajeev_ [~rajeev@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
08:32<Golfgeo>ali3n0: But the setup I just sugested is the best option to keep a small office running at mach speed... Simple user changes, PC additions and use standard images for client PC's.//
08:32<jm_>markus2: you can rebind dialog keys
08:33<Golfgeo>ali3n0: As you wish, but lookout for those all nighters when they need there data back...
08:33<ali3n0>Golfgeo, boss is not going to give me $ for licenses
08:34<ali3n0>Golfgeo, for unix boxes I'm using rdiff-backup and rsync and they are pretty easy to setup and maintain
08:34-!-kalpik [~kalpik@] has joined #debian
08:34<markus2>jm_: exactly that i was thinking of.. that would probably the easiest way to fix this..
08:34<Golfgeo>ali3n0: 10 seats and one w2k server isn't that expencive... I guess you're boss is just cheap...
08:34<markus2>then i have suffer from that arrow keys does'nt work when using a keyboard,, but that i can live with
08:35<petemc>you cant buy w2k any more
08:35<Golfgeo>ali3n0: But who am I to disagree...
08:35<petemc>Golfgeo: this isnt really the correct forum for advocating windows based solutions
08:35<ali3n0>Golfgeo, why to buy licenses in the end?
08:35<Golfgeo>petemc: Well, what ever version is currently the base...
08:36<ali3n0>I mean, there's plenty of good free software around, buy a win2k server is just the very last option
08:36<Golfgeo>petemc: I know this isn't that channel, but good advice none the less. And thats what counts...
08:36<petemc>its over £500 for windows small business server 2007
08:36<the-me>I've got the following big problem: We're using a 3,8 Tbyte parition and first grub and grub2 fails to install on it (guid partiton table) but lilo worked. now we upgraded to lenny and I wanted to replace lilo with grub{1,2} and have done a gptsync on this table. now grub{1,2} and lilo fail to install.. here are all needed informations:
08:37<ali3n0>petemc, also if it is $50, I'd like to try everything else before ;)
08:37<Golfgeo>petemc: And the costs are a writeoff as it is an investment...
08:37<petemc>its an unneccesary expense
08:38<ali3n0>worse, it's spending money for low quality stuff
08:38<Golfgeo>ali3n0: I know there are other options out there, but fast and hasstle free is also something most corps like... But thats my advice for a windows oriantated setup like you have.

08:39<ali3n0>Golfgeo, but I'm not buying a new pc just to do regular backups of a few megs
08:39<the-me>jm_, as far as I know grub2 should
08:39<petemc>ali3n0: i use dirvish
08:39<the-me>but anyway now lilo fails, too :<
08:39<Golfgeo>ali3n0: Last tip: Most small corps so it that way... Even just having you're fileserver running Debian makes costs sence in this senario...

08:59<ali3n0>I'll test this for a few days and if is not good enough maybe I'll consider to implement bacula or backuppc
09:00<ali3n0>Golfgeo, btw, thank you for your advice about total rethink and stuff

11:11<EmleyMoor>Shadowdancer: Don't know how real it is in any case
11:11<Shadowdancer>if it's a simple port multiplier, it depends on the kernel.

11:11<huobo>!keyboard specialkeys
11:11<dpkg>keyboard specialkeys are some special keys in your keyboard such Home, End, PgUp and PgDown or others. I think you should read "man setkeycodes" that involves "man showkey" too.
11:11<EmleyMoor>I should be able to do it all from Linux simply using the motherboard anyway - with cheaper single bays

11:14<EmleyMoor>With four hard drives on SATA, I should be able to do RAID 6 on lenny, shouldn't I?
11:15<sasha>hi i don t know what hapen but since some days my usb keys and external drives are not automounted under gnome anymore
11:15<TMcTrain> Sorry for the delay! I've 2 identical Mainboards and 2 hdds. I took one and installed Debian 2.6.18-6 with every neccessary modules and working ethernet connection. After that, I put the hdd in the other system and tried to reboot, everything works perfectly fine, except the network connection. the system tries to access the network hadware over the mac adress and thats the only difference of the 2 systems. Can someone give me a c
11:16<EmleyMoor>(if I can't 6 I might consider 5 or 1+0)

11:17<diogo>!multimedia keys
11:17<dpkg>hmm... multimedia keys is the special keys on your keyboard for doing such things as changing the volume or launching your web browser. Check to see if these keys generate a scan code using xev. and set the keyboard layout correctly or assign them to a shortcut with xmodmap, kcontrolcenter, gnome-control-panel etc. Also ask me about <keytouch>. see

11:18<dpkg>autofs is probably a kernel-based automounter for Linux, or silly to use 5 minutes as a default timeout for unmounting, or see, or a hackish p.o.s

11:20<Shadowdancer>EmleyMoor: RAID 5 and 6 are rather expensive in terms of CPU overhead. If you want that, proper hardware may be useful.

11:21-!-rlcarrera__ [~rlcarrera@] has joined #debian
11:22<EmleyMoor>I know 6 is good for surviving failures - a high consideration in my book
11:22<Shadowdancer>0, 1: cheap. 2, 3, 4: not useful. 5, 6: expensive
11:22<EmleyMoor>1+0 carries a higher risk of total loss than 6, does it not?

11:23<EmleyMoor>I have the money to do something fancy this time
11:24<benjamin>Is aptitude better than dkg?
11:24<benjamin>I mean than apt-get?
11:24<Shadowdancer>0 survives none, and a RAID1 arran with n disks generally survives n-1 disk failures
11:24<EmleyMoor>aptitude is the recommended package handling tool these days
11:24<TMcTrain>@qq: only the mac adress listed there or the whole content or the whole file?
11:24<benjamin>aptitude has a better dependency managment?
11:24<benjamin>or is it strictly the same than apt-get?
11:25<Shadowdancer>if you have real money, invest in a proper controller or even external box that just exposes the array as a standard drive.
11:25<qq>TMcTrain: only IP related content
11:25-!-muammar_ [] has joined #debian
11:25<Shadowdancer>especially for the higher RAID levels, you will get vastly better throughput from those solutions.

11:29<EmleyMoor>Shadowdancer: What sort of thing would you call a "proper controller"?
11:29<Shadowdancer>EmleyMoor: from what I read, LSI, Adaptec and 3Ware/AMCC make decent stuff.

11:37<dario>EagleScreen gracias
11:37<d0rt>benjamin, my understanding is that by default, aptitude will remove dependencies if they were installed as a result of you asking for a related package (and not directly)
11:37-!-egns [] has joined #debian
11:38<d0rt>that's after the original package is uninstalled
11:38-!-fxiny [] has joined #debian
11:38<d0rt>in that same scenario
11:38<EmleyMoor>True. If you explicitly installed any though, it stays
11:39<d0rt>apt-get will remove only the original package (and leave the dependencies installed)

11:42<dpkg>As of version 0.090, udev has the ability to statically rename ethernet cards based on MAC address. The addresses are configured in /etc/udev/rules.d/z25_persistent-net.rules . If you want the mappings to change, edit that file. See <forcedeth mac>. As of version 0.124-1 the file is called /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules .

14:30<EmleyMoor>Is there a way in aptitude to mark a package that is already installed as "keep installed only if required by another package"?
14:32<newsense>EmleyMoor: might want to look at deborphan
14:33<EmleyMoor>newsense: I've looked at it. The problem is, my system dates back to potato days - and many packages installed now would be better "automatically installed because of a dependency"
14:34<EmleyMoor>deborphan has helped a bit

14:36<EmleyMoor>As it's a complete rebuild on a new architecture it's worth doing
14:37<fxiny> EmleyMoor check debfoster
14:38<fxiny>defoster can give you a list with all dependencies like "package is keeping 3 packager installed" and so on
14:38<fxiny>then you work the list out
14:39<dondelelcaro>EmleyMoor: that's the automatically installed option
14:39<dondelelcaro>EmleyMoor: so go aptitude markauto foopkg;
14:39<fxiny>EmleyMoor: you can use debfoster to remove unwanted packages

17:37<m_101>mdadm --create /dev/md1 --level=1 --raid-disks=2 missing /dev/sdb1
17:37<Ryan52>that seems right
17:38<m_101>what does missing do?
17:38<Ryan52>it adds a missing device
17:38<Ryan52>so it doesnt add a device
17:38<Ryan52>but it reserves a spot for the device
17:38<Ryan52>(I guess thats a way of putting it...)
17:39<m_101>ok ... ... so if I want to add all my disk in my array and make it work I write this then? :

17:39<Ryan52>m_101: to create a new on, yes. if you want to add it to the existing one you do it differently.
17:40<m_101>if I wanna add to the existing one :
17:40<m_101>(mdadm --create /dev/md1 --level=1 --raid-disks=2 missing /dev sdb1)
17:40<m_101>mdadm --add /dev/md1 /dev/sda1
17:40<Ryan52>ya, that sounds right.
17:40<m_101>then the RAID 1 is rebuild on sdb1?
17:40-!-allisterb [] has joined #debian
17:40<Ryan52>no, it adds sda to the array and keeps the stuff on sdb
17:41<m_101>I'm asking this ... cause it's what I've done ... and I'm scared I fucked up my system lol
17:41<m_101>ow bad ><
17:41<m_101>so if the main partition was /dev/sda1 I should have done this ? :
17:41-!-dasmaze [] has joined #debian
17:41<m_101>mdadm --create /dev/md1 --level=1 --raid-disks=2 missing /dev sda1
17:41<m_101>mdadm --add /dev/md1 /dev/sdb1
17:41<Ryan52>that would clear everything out of sda1 first
17:42<Ryan52>you shouldve copied the stuff from sda to sdb.
17:42<Ryan52>make the array with only sda
17:42<Ryan52>copy the stuff from sdb to md1
17:42<Ryan52>add sdb to md1
17:42<Ryan52>how for which part?
17:43<m_101>all the steps you're saying xD
17:44<Ryan52>so assuming that sda has your important stuff on it and sdb has nothing on it:
17:44<m_101>(by the way I still don't really get the thing about the difference between adding a missing device and adding a device ...)
17:44<Ryan52>rsync -a /mnt/sda/ /mnt/sdb/

17:47<Ryan52>^copies everything from sdb to md1
17:47<Ryan52>oh, and there needs to be a trailing slash there

17:48<m_101>ok, I'm starting to get it for missing ... you reserve a slot for sdb but don't actually add it

17:48-!-kp [] has joined #debian
17:48<Ryan52>that makes an emtpy filesystem

17:49<m_101>ok, so when you do mkfs /dev/md1 it erase everything on sda1 and make a new filesystem
17:49<m_101>then that's why you add sdb1 after ....
17:50<Ryan52>you copy everything from sdb1 to the array
17:50<Ryan52>using rsync
17:50<Ryan52>then you add sdb1
17:50<Ryan52>if you dont then you'll lose all of your stuff

18:20<dasenjo>Hi, I'm trying to configure my laptop (thinkpad t61) wifi with the lenny beta netinst CD, I've installed wireless-tools and firmware-iwlwifi (non-free) and the module seems to be loaded ok .. the dhcp does not work ..can someone help me?

18:22<dasenjo>and are you using the lenny kernel? or upgraded to 2.6.23?
18:22<Ryan52>dasenjo: Ive been using it between 2.6.23 and 2.6.26 (all of them)
18:22<Ryan52>maybe 2.6.22 too...

18:26<Ryan52>what does this give you: iwconfig wlan0
18:27<Ryan52>zboy417: I've never done anything fancy with it (more than access a share on a windows computer), so I can't help you there...

18:28-!-MukMuk [] has quit []
18:29<Ryan52>iwconfig should show an ap. if it doesn't then you need to set it by gettting the mac (of the wireless access point) from the iwlist output and setting it with 'iwconfig wlan0 ap mac_addr_here'

18:31<Ryan52>why not?
18:31<Ryan52>what's it saying?
18:32-!-mode/#debian [+l 345] by debhelper
18:32<EmleyMoor>Is software RAID 6 supported by lenny?
18:32<dasenjo>according to it is supposed that 2.6.24 should works better, cause it's native .. but now I'm using an ubuntu with 2.6.22 and an bit older iwl4965 and the dhcp connection works ..
18:32<Ryan52>if your using the lenny installer and it's not working, you should do an installation report and report a bug.
18:32<Ryan52>EmleyMoor: yes.

18:32<m_101>isn't it good?

18:33<Ryan52>yes, that would be the point of the rsync.
18:34<Ryan52>once you run mdadm to add a drive, everything that was on it is gone.

18:43<zboy417>where do i find out what version of debian i'm running?
18:43<Ryan52>debian has 2.22
18:43<Ryan52>zboy417: cat /etc/debian_version
18:43<Ryan52>zboy417: or 'lsb_release -cs' is a way that works on all distros, so is better for scripting
18:43<zboy417>4.0 (etch)
18:43<zboy417>but it says my gnome is 2.14.3
18:43<Ryan52>that's stable
18:44<EmleyMoor>zboy417: etch has been out quite a long time
18:44<Ryan52>stable doesn't get new versions in debian
18:44<Ryan52>but debian testing and unstable do. and they have the new versions.
18:44<EmleyMoor>That would have been the most thoroughly tested gnome at the time - that's what stable means
18:44<m_101>nautilus is 2.20 though ;)
18:44<Ryan52>(testing doesn't anymore, but that's not the point)
18:44<zboy417> how do i do the testing stuff :-P
18:45-!-kc9eye [] has joined #debian
18:45<m_101>testing has 2.22 but not for all Gnome stuff
18:45<interbird>check /etc/apt/sources.list -- you are on etch (stable), lenny (testing) or sid (unstable)
18:45<Ryan52>zboy417: change /etc/apt/sources.list and aptitude dist-upgrade
18:45<m_101>monitor is 2.22 and nautilus is 2.20 for example

18:52<interbird>first apt-get update to get up-to-date with whatever you use, then edit your /etc/apt/sources.list and replace stable or etch for sid, then apt-get update then apt-get dist-upgrade -- BUT kernel will be upgraded too so it's good to have knowledge how to boot in case of failure; there's no "sweets" in doing this, you must know what you are doing...
18:52<zboy417>interbird...i'm doing lenny not sid
18:52<zboy417>i'm not that brave :D
18:53<upsilon>I thought stable>unstable wasn't possible anyway
18:53<interbird>"hey, i just noticed, why doesn't debian use the newest gnome?" -- because you are doing Lenny...
18:54<Ryan52>upsilon: it is.
18:54<Ryan52>upsilon: at times testing is exactly the same as unstable.
18:54<Ryan52>or, it could be.
18:54<Ryan52>I doubt it ever is.
18:55<Ryan52>upsilon: things go directly from unstable to testing after 10 days

19:11<EmleyMoor>Well, that's not going to be a problem
19:11<EmleyMoor>It's going to be a totally fresh machine anyway, except the TV card. I can't be sure the internal sound will be OK but if it isn't, I will reuse my old second sound card

20:30<adpa>is this how it';s normally done?
20:30<dpkg>methinks fakeraid is term used for controller cards that advertise RAID functionality that is NOT supported by a hardware chip for parity. Most of these have only a BIOS ... if you use them with Debian it's suggested that you don't set a RAID in the BIOS and don't use dmraid, just use regular software RAID (ask me about <md>). see <sata faq>
20:30<zboy417>i don't see a hard drive just bios, dmi, and acpi
20:30<philsf>adpa: why did you zero the drive like this?

21:12<Ryan52>nsadmin: downloads source package
21:12<Ryan52>nsadmin: by giving it the URL to the .dsc
21:12<Ryan52>nsadmin: and it unpacks it too
21:12<zboy417>btw...the iso i did this from is the mini iso that downloads from the internet
21:13<interbird>zboy417: you give no context; are you in DOS or in an editor? I would like to help you. If you want that, go to #help-x
21:13<nsadmin>ahh, that's the same as apt-get source apckage
21:13<zboy417>interbird...right now it says (initramfs)
21:13<Ryan52>nsadmin: sort of
21:13<piper>zboy417: my bad, i don't think (or can't remember) debian (etch or lenny) uses gfxmenu
21:13<Ryan52>nsadmin: it doesn't need to be in your sources.list for dget
21:13<interbird>zboy417: i am on #help-x
21:14<nsadmin>how would it get if it doesn't know the src?
21:14<nsadmin>nm, I'm curious but lacking on time
21:14<Ryan52>nsadmin: dget

21:15<Ryan52>angasule: irssi ftw!
21:15<nsadmin>that's sorta equivalent to downloading the 3 files separately by something like ftp
21:16-!-path_ [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
21:16<Ryan52>nsadmin: and unpacking the orig.tar.gz and applying the .diff.gz
21:16<Ryan52>nsadmin: which is too much effort imho
21:16<angasule>Ryan52: I like konversation while using kde, but yeah, irssi is decent
21:16<nsadmin>if they do it that way once, at least they'll have an inkling what it looks like
21:17<angasule>I'm also not liking the default kde sounds in lenny, too many of them, I feel like I'm zero cool in hackers :P
21:17<Ryan52>nsadmin: huh?
21:17-!-vbftb [] has joined #debian
21:17<nsadmin>they'll get a clearer picture in their mind of what a source package is
21:18-!-vbftb [] has quit []
21:20<nsadmin>hence "what it looks like"
21:20<Ryan52>nsadmin: by type 'tar xzvf' and 'patch -p 0' (or 1, I forget which way dpkg does it...)?
21:23<nsadmin>yeah, they'd see it's three files one of which is the tarball that came from upstream, a patch and a description file that tells dpkg-source what to do to extract
21:24<Ryan52>but anybody who knows what dget does should already know about that.

21:24-!-jclinton [] has joined #debian
21:25<Ryan52>or who knows how to find the URL to give to dget.
21:25<nsadmin>I'd say the reason for dget (and dpkg-source) is to hide that
21:25-!-angasule [~angasule@] has joined #debian
21:25<nsadmin>you'd need a complementary tool which, given a package and having the sources.list, supplies the url
21:26-!-famelix [] has joined #debian
21:26-!-famelix [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
21:27<nsadmin>so you'd do dget $(apt-url ardour-gtk)
21:27<Ryan52>so the same as apt-get source

21:28<nsadmin>correct :)
21:28-!-pablomat [~pablo@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
21:28<nsadmin>so it's a factored form
21:29<nsadmin>it answers the question "where can I download the source or the bins"
21:30<dondelelcaro>nsadmin: the reason for dget is because you're often working with sources for which you don't have a sources.list entry

21:30-!-talon is now known as talonIX
21:30<interbird>well, where they've allways "bin" :-)
21:31<dondelelcaro>or at least, I am; I also like to check the signature of the .dsc against the orig.tar.gz, and it's always easier to not have to think about whether a package is native or not
21:32<nsadmin>the dsc tells you that
21:32<Ryan52>nsadmin: dget looks at the dsc...
21:32<nsadmin>so the dsc tells dget that too :)
21:33<Ryan52>ya. dget just automates that stuff that people are tired of doing manually.

21:42<font-hater>I'm amazed by how bad the fonts look in Debian: gnome terminal and esp. IceWeasel. Was the maintainer blind or are decent fonts considered evil M$ evil?
21:42<Ryan52>looks fine to me...
21:43<Ryan52>iceweasel, at least. I don't use gnome-terminal.
21:43<font-hater>Ryan52: do you use lenny?
21:44<Ryan52>should be teh same

22:41<kop>I've got 4 boxes I want to do a minimal debian install on, and then add a few packages, do a bit of configuation like I like it, and then go on to differentiate each box. What's the best way to proceed? I'm tempted to install one box, tar it up and copy it, but I wonder whether I'd miss something like the ssh keys that serve to differentiate the installs.
22:42<Ryan52>kop: preseeding or FAI
22:42<dpkg>methinks preseed is a method of doing a remote network installation, or, or
22:42<dpkg>an automated installation tool to install or deploy Debian GNU/Linux and other distributions on a bunch of different hosts or a Cluster. It's more flexible than other tools like kickstart for Red Hat, autoyast and alice for SuSE or Jumpstart for SUN Solaris. FAI can also be used for configuration management of a running system. channel: #fai site:
22:43<Ryan52>the point of preseeding is that once you do a normal install it gives you a preseed file from that install that you can use on the others.
22:43<Ryan52>fai/tweaking the preseed would be to much of a PITA for only 4 boxes probably...
