02:21-!-rxs [] has joined #debian
02:21<twb>toclock: however, packages installed by running "make install" in their source tree will NOT be listed there.

02:32-!-abli [] has joined #debian
02:33<abli>Hi! how can I get a list of packages that are placed on hold in aptitude (i.e. aptitude won't automatically upgrade them)? I found nothing helpful in the aptitude users manual
02:33<twb>aptitude search ~ahold?
02:34<twb>That seems to also list forbidden packages, here.
02:34<abli>twb, ok, thanks. Now where was that in the users manual? :)
02:34<twb>"pattern" ?
02:35<twb>There's two sections that are useful; one is the appendix on command line stuff, and the other is the pattern section
02:35-!-yporti [] has quit []
02:36<abli>oh. ok. Thanks
02:36<abli>It is a bit misleading that this is a "Matches packages upon which the given action is going to be performed" but hold is not an "action", more like a state.
02:37-!-Vif18 [~padma@] has joined #debian
02:37-!-bdunlap [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
02:39-!-freealan [] has joined #debian
02:42<twb>Hold *is* an action.
02:42<twb>If you do "aptitude install", which performs all outstanding actions, then held packages will be held.
02:42<twb>It's counter-intuitive, I admit.
02:42<toclock>Could you make an alias syntax for make to log everything?
02:42<twb>abli: the other thing to try would be grep-status from the grep-dctrl package.
02:43<twb>toclock: I would discourage such behaviours.
02:43<twb>toclock: the reason there's a package management system is precisely so that it can tell you what got installed, where, and generally not fuck up your system.
02:44<twb>toclock: doing ANYTHING via "make install" will ignore this infrastructure, meaning that you're operating without a safety net. Trying to make your own safety net out of pocket fluff and wishful thinking is not going to be anywhere near as effective as using the existing infrastructure.
02:45-!-yang [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
02:48<toclock>somebody in here could come handy and tell me if he/she has a tip for logging make installs!..?
02:50<toclock>is there a linux from scratch channel?
02:50<twb>toclock: if you choose to ignore my advice and persist in this stupid approach, a good start would be the "script" utility.
02:50-!-scretch [~scretch@] has joined #debian
02:50<twb>toclock: it is provided by the bsdutils package.
02:50-!-rjc_ [] has quit [Quit: leaving]
02:51<toclock>is there some nice doc for it ?... or tell me how to build packages from source tar balls that would also be an option...
02:52<twb>toclock: this is not an appropriate channel to discuss LFS.
02:52<toclock>so i Asked for the right channel...

03:56-!-jazz [] has joined #debian
03:56-!-ricli85 [] has joined #debian
03:56<Ryan52>what happens?
03:57<ricli85>hi, I just applied the last update in debian etch
03:57<palecoeu>Here is the error message I have
03:57<ricli85>now I have some problems with nautilus haning
03:57<palecoeu>Kernel module is not loaded in, cannot verify kernel version.
03:57<Ryan52>ricli85: what all did you update?
03:57<ricli85>any one sle experiencing the same thing?
03:57<palecoeu>when I did ipset -V
03:57<ricli85>Ryan52, is there a way I can check the last updates I applied?
03:57-!-madrescher [] has quit [Quit: Leaving.]
03:58<ricli85>I just installed whatever was suggested
03:58<Ryan52>ricli85: /var/log/dpkg.log
03:58<Ryan52>ricli85: usually it's a good thing to pay attention to what your doing...
03:58<palecoeu>and when I did ipset -N test iphash, I have "FATAL: Module ip_set not found.
03:58<palecoeu>ipset v2.3.3: Error from kernel: Protocol not available"
03:59<gsimmons>palecoeu: Sounds like you didn't patch your kernel as required. See /usr/share/doc/ipset/README.Debian.
03:59<ricli85>Ryan52, but etch should be stable right and only provide security updates?
03:59<Ryan52>ricli85: it could also be etch and a half
03:59<Ryan52>ricli85: depending on when it was you last updated
03:59<ricli85>Ryan52, and a half?
03:59-!-Braindecay [] has joined #debian
04:00<palecoeu>I will have a look on it
04:01<ricli85>Ryan52, the update included a new linux image, libxml, linux headers, python-libxml,
04:01<Ryan52>libxml is probably the culprit...
04:02<Ryan52>but are you sure that that's what caused it?
04:02<Ryan52>by probably the culprit, I mean out of those choices...
04:02<ricli85>i am not sure, but nautilus stopped working after the update I made
04:03<gsimmons>palecoeu: No private messages, please.
04:03-!-pituffo [] has joined #debian
04:03<Braindecay>should i install vtun to get a virtual ethernet device for pptp?
04:03-!-Wezz6400 [] has joined #debian
04:03<palecoeu>sorry, it's the first time I am using irc client
04:04<Ryan52>ricli85: well, nautilus works for me...and I really doubt that the security team would put in an update that breaks nautilus...
04:04<Ryan52>ricli85: if you run it from the command line do you get the errors?
04:05<ricli85>Ryan52, hold on, I will check
04:05-!-habtool [] has quit [Quit: Ex-Chat]
04:05<ricli85>Ryan52, nothing, it just hangs, no messages
04:06<ricli85>Ryan52, but is it correct that if you run etch, only security updates will come?
04:06<Ryan52>yes, except for etch and a half
04:06<ricli85>what is etch and a half?
04:07<Ryan52>and stable point point releases for that matter
04:07<palecoeu>gsimmons: just to confirm, I have to do runme, then make and make install in the linux source directory ?
04:08<ricli85>Ryan52, thanks
04:08<ricli85>any other tips for troubleshooting?
04:08<Ryan52>ricli85: gives an example of a point release
04:08<Ryan52>ricli85: no idea at all. try strace-ing it
04:08<Ryan52>ricli85: and pastebin the output
04:08<ricli85>Ryan52, how do I trace?
04:09<Ryan52>the s is not a type
04:09<Ryan52>apt-get install strace
04:09<Ryan52>strace nautilus
04:09-!-Braindecay [] has left #debian []

04:11-!-MadHag [] has joined #debian
04:11<palecoeu>I still have the problem
04:11<ricli85>Ryan52, seems like I can run nautilus from root but not from my user
04:12<MadHag>Hi I just installed phpmyadmin on my server, how do I access it via the web?
04:12<ricli85>Ryan52, any ideas what might be wrong?
04:12<palecoeu>maybe I made a mistake with applying the patchomatic ?
04:12<Ryan52>ricli85: strace it as your user
04:12<Ryan52>ricli85: and pastebin the output
04:12<dpkg>somebody said phpmyadmin was a tool written in PHP intended to handle the administration of MySQL over the Internet. Currently it can create and drop databases, create/drop/alter tables, delete/edit/add fields, execute any SQL statement, and manage keys on fields.
04:12<Ryan52>MadHag: setup apache?
04:12<Ryan52>MadHag: check in /usr/share/doc/phpmyadmin
04:12<MadHag>for what?
04:12<Ryan52>MadHag: it might have some helpful hints
04:13<Ryan52>MadHag: might even be an examples dir with an apache config file in it...
04:13<MadHag>ok, thanks

04:35<Ryan52>palecoeu: that comment provided nothing useful.
04:35-!-moffe [] has joined #debian
04:35<Ryan52>regarding ipset. got that from the first one. on debian. got that from the fact your talking on #debian.

04:39<dpkg>from memory, uname is a cool way to "print system information" (man uname for more info), for basic use, try: uname -a

04:44<les>palecoeu, are You using initrd?
04:45<palecoeu>I just found 2 entry in menu.lst
04:45<dpkg>from memory, update-grub is a magical Debian system for maintaining the grub menu automatically whenever kernel images are installed and removed (assuming they are built using make-kpkg as they should be). Also might want to man kernel-img.conf, and have a look at the docs in /usr/share/doc/grub , do 'zless /usr/share/doc/grub/README.Debian.gz'
04:45<palecoeu>one with 2.6.24, and one with 2.6.24-etchanhalf
04:46<les>when You use initramfs, You need also: update-initramfs -c -k <kernelversion>
04:46<les>but then, You must first create the initrd
04:46<les>and then update grub
04:47<les>or is this a kernel-version, which actually exists?

08:38<AzaTht>when you need packages.d.o, it's down :(
08:38<philsf>bug #471670 is closed in bzip2 1.0.5-0.1, which is what I have now. There is 1.0.5-1 available, which should also include the cve fix, but apt-listbugs disagree that this version is greater. what's going on? is this a mistake in how apt-listbugs decides on versions?
08:39<philsf>(btw, I'm using lenny)
08:39<AzaTht>apt-listbugs usually have lots of bugs, though the maintainer argues that it's always debbugs fault
08:42<chealer>philsf: how does apt-listbugs disagree that this version is greater?
08:44<philsf>chealer: by telling me the bug exists in the version to be installed, when the bug is closed in the version I already have (and the one to be installed is greater)
08:45<philsf>it says: grave bugs of bzip2 (1.0.5-0.1 -> 1.0.5-1) <done>

08:47<philsf>chealer: well, then I don't know what it means exactly, ok. But it *shouldn't* warn me of a bug already corrected, right?

08:48<philsf>am I missing something here?

09:38<Pepper>Lethalman: I just wanted to test my systems upgrade. But if there are well known show-stoppers...
09:38<Shadowdancer>just because I find the notion of fixed releases pretty braindead for somethign as dynamic as Linux distros.

09:41<Pepper>could not find one.
09:41<Lethalman>Pepper, lenny is not out
09:41<Lethalman>it's still testing, it's not stable
09:42<Pepper>Lethalman: I know, but is there none in the process of being written? Just to test...
09:42<Lethalman>i don't know
09:42<Lethalman>there are several docs to upgrade to testing though
09:43<Pepper>Lethalman, thx.
09:43<Lethalman>just add testing and remove stable to sources.list then dist-upgrade

11:04<iandeb>ForgeAus, for short: Ubuntu takes a SID source snapshot, makes a selection of needed pkgs, applies their own patches and recompiles them to their own release repos
11:05<ForgeAus>then essentially ubuntu = sidux?

11:05-!-berto [] has joined #debian
11:06-!-MrNaz [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
11:06<iandeb>ForgeAus, Nope, sidux is pure SID with some small fixes, ubuntu on the other hand just makes a snapshot a freezes packages in their own repos, so that they are not changes until the next release (only updates). Sidux is just a bootable Debian SID LiveCD you can install with custom artwork

11:07<iandeb>ForgeAus, As I said, your question is really complex but ubuntu and debian are quite different thing, you can think of ubuntu to be a "child" of debian with lots of modifications in favor of making an easy-to-use OS
11:08<ForgeAus>yeah well I use Kubuntu (and andlinux which is essentially kubuntu embedded using colinux from within windowsXP - kinda analogous to installing kubuntu in vmware)... ... and I do find it easy...
11:10<ForgeAus>even slackware packages that are simple binary ones can be manually extracted pretty much directly into it... not sure about gentoo or rpm stuff...
11:10-!-solid [~solid@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
11:10<iandeb>ForgeAus, Nice to hear, but I would recommend to install it on a normal Linux partition instead of using it out of windwos
11:10<ForgeAus>iandeb I have both
11:11<ForgeAus>goina get intrepid since my last livecd was feisty...
11:11<ForgeAus>but its still alpha so going to wait some
11:11<iandeb>ForgeAus, I would not recommend to use neither slackware nor rpm, though they work but dpkg does not notice anything if you install your pkgs using e.g. pure binaries

11:12-!-nihil [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
11:12<ForgeAus>just that some things don't come as .debs unfortunately
11:12<iandeb>ForgeAus, what for example
11:13<iandeb>ForgeAus, Debian is the biggest Linux dist with most packages; if somethings not there, take the source and package it yourself or I will do it, I am making debs
11:13<ForgeAus>uh... nots ure about vmware server now, but there wasn't when I installed it... (may have changed since then)... mostly miscellaneous things... awn-plugins will have a .deb next release (they missed the previous deadline)...
11:14<lkh>slush, thanx that should be it, because originally I formatted it using mkfs.ext3. Do you know what happens if I set it to 0?
11:14<ForgeAus>I don't know of metisse .deb's either
11:14-!-les [] has joined #debian
11:15<iandeb>ForgeAus, don't forget kubuntu does not have all deb debian has
11:15-!-madrescher [] has quit [Quit: Leaving.]
11:16<ForgeAus>also do .deb's have OR's for dependancies? lotsa stuff if you have KDE installs unnecessay gnome packages :(... like qt-firefox (coming soon) wouldn't fulfill firefox dependancy :(...
11:16-!-meandtheshell1 [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
11:16<ForgeAus>mostly I had that trouble with AWN (lotsa gnome dependancies but I use KDE)...
11:17<slush>lkh, depends on what you gonna use it for, if you use it just for data you can set it to 0, but there is more change of fragmentation. The manpage explains what it generally is used for
11:17<ForgeAus>I can understand something like gimp installing half of gnome
11:18<iandeb>ForgeAus, gimp does not install half of gnome but rather all gtk libs and the gnome-icons
11:19<ForgeAus>lol I was just using it as an example and since Gnome is based on GTK it would make sense if gimp did install gnome dependancies, that was what I meant to say...
11:19<ForgeAus>but awn should be more wm-agnostic...
11:19<ForgeAus>but I find more and more, gnome dependancies on agnostic programs...
11:19-!-nesoustredeny [~nesoustre@] has joined #debian
11:20<stevecotton>ForgeAus: .debs have ORs for dependency, but if none of the options are installed it will always install the first one, rather than working out which will need the least other packages installed.
11:20<lkh>slush, yes it is to be used for data (thats also why I chose ext2 over ext2). I don't understand how it might prevent fragmentation, but I dont know much about filesystems anyway.
11:20<lkh>*ext2 over ext3
11:21<ForgeAus>kewl steve... brb
11:21<iandeb>ForgeAus, and awn seems to be associated with gnome hence it offers gnome-applets; dont bother using other distros like Fedora or openSUSE will give u more probs; APT is stronger than yum or zypper; to make APT searching for the best option with least dependencies you need to configure it manually

11:24<ForgeAus>iandeb I know rpms are somehow dangerous for .deb-based distros, pkg-src could coexist peacefully but again adept or whatever package manager (ie APT) doesn't know about them like you said
11:24<iandeb>ForgeAus, apt does, adept doesnt and synaptic has also such problems
11:25<ForgeAus>kynaptic is abandoned right?
11:25<ForgeAus>Adept is kewl anyway, no need for it
11:25<iandeb>ForgeAus, APT itself is such a big c++ lib - it can do anything you want in comparison to rpm's yum or zypper
11:26<ForgeAus>Kpackage is kewl too
11:26<ForgeAus>of course finding a .deb is the best solution, but do you recommend alien for .rpms? sofar I havn't installed any... I just extract stuff from them and try to compile it (sofar havn't been sucessful)...
11:27-!-Tallken [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
11:27<iandeb>ForgeAus, yes alien is a good solution if there is no deb
11:27<ForgeAus>anything from mirosoft or novell, etc. don't tend to have .deb's :(
11:28-!-jclinton [] has joined #debian
11:28<ForgeAus>but then they're not likely to be FOSS stuff anyway...
11:28<ForgeAus>at least you can get ati drivers as .debs now :).. thats kewl...
11:28<iandeb>ForgeAus, OK I agree; they will not build anything for free distros but rather for commercial ones like the farmer RedHat, but all you get are just low-quality rpms I also do not recommend to use
11:29<iandeb>ForgeAus, just try to compile a deb yourself if you are able to do so
11:29<ForgeAus>how about yahoo messenger? there was one for linux, (not sure if there is anymore, kopete is about the closest thing, and that doesn't work with multiple Yahoo Identities)
11:29<ForgeAus>iandeb I don't know how
11:30<ForgeAus>I don't think the Yahoo Messenger for Unix is viable anymore anyway since it was roughly equiv to windows v5.x one or so and that isn't functional anymore...
11:31<iandeb>ForgeAus, if there is a source, the easiest way is to use checkinstall (but you will not get a distributable high-quality deb, they will be something like all those rpms)
11:31<ForgeAus>Yahoo doesn't even recognise Konqueror as a browser! lol
11:31<iandeb>ForgeAus, well repot it as a bug

12:41<MaGaO>I'm trying to change a root filesystem from reiserfs to ext3. I made a backup, reformatted the root partition with mkfs.ext3 and dumped the tar backup on it. I changed /etc/fstab so the partition's expected filesystem is ext3. Unfortunately, the kernel insists in looking for a reiserfs partition. Since grub doesn't seem to be telling the kernel anything, does anybody know what I can do to succeed?

17:44<Ryan52>AFAIK that's not in the normal path for regular programs to #include from...

18:25<Painiac>i need to make a 'symlink' i think
18:26<Painiac>from his /home/username/extradrive to /dev/hdd
18:26<Painiac>what is the proper syntax to create this link? ive never used ln before
18:26<clint1986>Painiac: /dev/hdd isn't a folder
18:27<Painiac>okay so i need to create a folder first on /dev/hdd ?
18:27<clint1986>yeah, on the partition
18:27<clint1986>then just link to the path
18:27<Painiac>okay i know how to use mkdir, but not ln
18:28<pierre_>stevecotton: thanks :-)
18:28<clint1986>ln -s /path/to/source /path/to/target
18:28<clint1986>you might want to cp the contents first

20:09<abrotman>ptr: what else is under / ?
20:10<ptr>/boot, which also can't be a separate fs, since grub doesn't understand lvm
20:10<foxdie>Ryan52, and how can I do that?
20:10<foxdie>in gentoo, when you try to upgrade, if there's something to downgrade, does it
20:10<abrotman>ptr: you could switch to lilo :)
20:10<Ryan52>foxdie: probably with pinning...
20:11<dpkg>Pinning is a method to choose packages when multiple repositories are enabled in sources.list. man apt_preferences,, Bugs are explained at If you use stable, pinning won't help you from messing up the system... use <backports> instead.

20:15<ptr>/ is a separate partition at the beginning of the drive. But I could move /boot/* into the root dir of that partition, then move / into lvm

21:23<nontoxic>i don't think i asked one
21:23<nontoxic>yeah. i remember seeing a message about /etc/resolv.conf
21:24<nontoxic>i must need to set it like you said
21:24<dpkg>resolv.conf is probably /etc/resolv.conf, resolver configuration file that contains your nameserver IPs. It's written by DHCP client. To use different nameservers than those provided by DHCP, use eg. "supersede domain-name-servers;" in /etc/dhcp/dhclient.conf. You can also "prepend" or "append" instead of "supersede".

21:27<tcsetattr>we've completely discounted the possibility that anoyone might actually edit resov.conf as if it was a config file (which it _is_) and it must universally be tampered with by DHCP?
21:29<nontoxic>well, dhcp doesn't seem to have provided anything. the file is empty
21:30<nontoxic>that must be why i have no connectivity
21:30<Ryan52>nontoxic: your not using dhcp if you set a static ip...

21:33<tcsetattr>abrotman, if you don't HAVE dhcp installed, there IS NO dhclient.conf, and that's the wrong thing to tell people. It should say "you may edit /etc/resolv.conf with your favorite editor, see the resolv.conf(5) man page for syntax"

21:34<tcsetattr>it looks like we've degenerated to the level that we forgot how to do static addressing. which is just sad because it's really not difficult. can't live without DHCP?
21:35<Ryan52>isai: why dont you just let d-i do all of that? if d-i isn't working, what's happening?
21:35<Ryan52>(d-i == debian installer)
21:35-!-WayneSallee [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]

21:35<Ryan52>isai: you'll have to tell debian installer what to use as the root device
21:36<Ryan52>isai: so you have to do at least that through d-i
21:36<tcsetattr>the whole "resolv.conf" factoid DOES NOT MENTION THE CORRECT MAN PAGE. that was my entire point.

21:42<tcsetattr>proposal: !resolv.conf is /etc/resolv.conf, DNS client-side configuration file. This file should contain a line of the form "nameserver A.B.C.D" for each nameserver you want to use. DHCP client, if you use one, might screw with this file so watch out

21:53<astronut>ok, so it's not like you're risking anything so ya

22:42<kop>haldoor : You'll also want to dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg, but that can be done from the termial after booting.
22:42<abrotman>citalim: that would explain the dbus crap i suppose
22:43<haldoor>i won't really need the hardware. i'm just transferring some files to another machine then i'm wiping the drive
22:43<kop>haldoor : The initramfs has the kernel modules needed to mount the root fs. So if the old box is ide and the new sata, you won't have the sata drivers at boot without rebuilding the initramfs.

22:49<MotoHoss>astronut: yep, u did. i saw his /me earlier saw your confirm... and confirmed your confirm... &<)
22:51*abrotman confirms the confirmation of said confirmation
22:51*astronut confirms abrotman's confirmation of the confirmation of my confirmation
22:51*abrotman gets dizzy and falls down
22:52*MotoHoss ain't goin there. &<)
22:53<astronut>people need to ask more questions or i might have to actually do real work

22:59<MotoHoss>ok doke... here's one. does this look like a reasonable and sane way of changing the devices in fstab from /dev ot labels?
23:00-!-xygg [] has joined #debian
23:00<xygg>I've got a quick question, if someone can help. I'm trying out nessus, and am supplying the following command: nessus -n ~/targets output I don't see an arg flag to specify the targets file... but can skip the user and password as I'm not going remote. any ideas on how to fix it?
23:00<astronut>line 23 and 24-5 seem to be duplicated
23:01<astronut>and it only talks about ext2/3 partitions rather than using GUIDs

23:04<haldoor><kop> haldoor : (Likely it'll need other hardware. So boot from an install disk, mount and chroot and then rebuild the initramfs.)
23:04<haldoor>mount and chroot?

23:05<MotoHoss>astronut: 21-26 are pasted right out of the console to show the results of the commands "in full" rather than just the snippet. e2label will show the blank line (22) if no label is set...
23:05<astronut>haldoor: what was the context?
23:05<astronut>oh, i think kop was wrong
23:06<astronut>IIRC, the initramfs by default should handle most hardware stuff fine
23:06<haldoor>moving a debian installation to a different computer

23:06<astronut>you may have issues booting because your kernel won't load the proper hardware drivers
23:06<astronut>if so, that's a recovery procedure
23:06<haldoor>hold on...
23:06<haldoor>lemme just do it now.
23:07<MotoHoss>astronut: I kinda was thinking that when I pasted those lines in... maybe it's too much info...
23:07<xygg>any ideas on the nessus?
23:08<astronut>MotoHoss: you should clarify
23:08<astronut>xygg: never used it
23:08<MotoHoss>astronut: I agree. and I will.

23:17<qq>MotoHoss: so useing grub by levels , we may (again) moving a debian installation to a different computer ?
23:19-!-Gekz [] has joined #debian
23:20<MotoHoss>qq: I would think that is possible... and easier using "LABEL=" rather than /dev or GUID. again I haven't actually done it (yet) so caveat emptor.
23:20<qq>a grub with root=UUID= ... prevent doing that
23:21<kop>astronut : (There really is no "default" initramfs. Apt builds a custom one for each kernel upon install. If you use common hardware, well, it'll probably work -- unless you're moving the drive to uncommon hardware.)
23:21<MotoHoss>qq: yes.
23:23<dmoerner>win 2
23:23<smaug9>I just installed debian on a nslu2. every time I add a user I get a pam error:
23:23<astronut>kop: the default initramfs generator
23:23<smaug9>You are required to change your password immediately (root enforced)
23:23<smaug9>chfn: PAM authentication failed
23:23<smaug9>I've not seen this before
23:23<astronut>it includes all the neccessary drivers rather than just as needed (or it used to)
23:23<smaug9>any hints?
23:24<kop>astronut : Ok. But what uses this, the installer?
23:24<qq>MotoHoss: sadly in my case with installing on a fast machine , and don't being capable to boot a pure 486 (DX4 @100 MHz)
23:25<astronut>kop: the default one for update-initramfs
23:27<MotoHoss>qq: LABEL should work for you nicely.
