00:45<kop>Allright... My problem was a bad symlink. Shouldn't "ln -sf foo bar" replace bar even if it already exists?
00:46-!-superme [] has joined #debian
00:47<Ryan52>dunno...did you read the man page?
00:47<Ryan52>did you *try* it?
00:47<tlmiller>perhaps it didn't like -sf and wanted -s -f
00:47-!-alvarezp [] has joined #debian
00:48<Ryan52>that would be dumb.
00:48<tlmiller>it's happened to me with other commands.
00:48<Ryan52>(oh, wait, my apps do that :P)
00:48<tlmiller>toss on a -i and let it prompt you for good measure.
00:49<superme>hi everyone ! Still my wifi+kernel pb on eeepc (2.6.25 vs 2.6.26 / dependencies). The 2.6.26 did updated with atl2, madwifi did not follow. With aptitude, i search to downgrade back the atl2 to the 2.6.25 ... i don't find the command in help/man/?
00:49<kop>Ryan52 : Sure I tried it. It was the cause of my problems. I was softlinking a directory though. Maybe there's posix wierdness with trailing slashes aka cp and --strip-trailing-slash
00:50<kop>(Or whatever that posix wierdness with trailing slashes is for mv and cp and the like.)

00:57<enouf>s3a: that's not a default debian .bashrc
00:58<Ryan52>s3a: add this: . /etc/bash_completion
00:58<Ryan52>s3a: and make sure you have /etc/bash_completion
00:58<Ryan52>s3a: if not, install bash-completion
00:59<superme>on aptitude, how can i ungrade a version of a package ?
01:00<Ryan52>superme: ungrade? you mean downgrade? or upgrade?
01:00-!-oPen_syLar [~OS@] has left #debian [me voy pal coño..!]
01:00<superme>Ryan52: downgrade. upgrade is +, remove is -
01:00<superme>but do't find downgrade in help or man
01:00<Ryan52>no. + is install.
01:01<Ryan52>superme: apt-get install package/etch
01:01<Ryan52>superme: aptitude install package/etch
01:01<Ryan52>superme: aptitude install package=0.1.2
01:01<superme>Ryan52: i am on lenny
01:02<Ryan52>so your trying to install the version from etch?
01:02<Ryan52>or from what?
01:03<Ryan52>this isn't gentoo. you cant pick an arbitrary version to install.
01:04<superme>Ryan52: i allready on lenny. I have troubles with wifi conf between the 2.6.25 and the 2.6.26. Because of bugs on the last version (for eeepc) i want to downgrade the atl2 modules
01:04-!-Gekz [] has joined #debian
01:04<Ryan52>superme: oh. thats not downgrading a package.
01:04<superme>from the ? : "+" Install or upgrade a package
01:04<Ryan52>the kernel versions are separate versions.
01:04<Ryan52>err, separate packages
01:05<Ryan52>so remove linux-image-2.6-686
01:05<superme>Ryan52: but the atl2 are allready upgraded
01:05<dpkg>rumour has it, snapshots is an archive that contains all Debian packages uploaded since 2002, including those removed from the official archives because they were very buggy, unusable, broken, vulnerable or in some way undistributable. Much of 2004 was lost because of harddisk problems. See for more information.
01:05-!-icman [] has joined #debian
01:06<Ryan52>superme: ^^
01:06<superme>(for the "downgrade" i just did not find the good word in english ^^)
01:06-!-Gekz_ [~brendan@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
01:06<Ryan52>you cant downgrade to a version that's no longer in debian
01:06<Ryan52>you can get it from snapshots though
01:06<Ryan52>(assuming snapshots got more disk space...)
01:07<superme>Ryan52: so if i remove linux-image-2.6-686, i come back to the 2.26.25 for all packages ?
01:07<Ryan52>you also must remove .26
01:07<Ryan52>so linux-image-2.6.26-1-686
01:08<Ryan52>and then you'll have to find that atl or whatever from snapshots, if its available
01:08-!-sniggels [] has joined #debian

01:09-!-sysop [] has quit [Read error: Operation timed out]
01:09<tlmiller>look under /media
01:09<superme>Ryan52: pb is i am connected now with the 2.6-26, wich use the atl2 2.6-26 (by wired), if i spend back to the 2.6-25 i can't connect it
01:10<sniggels>got it, thanks
01:10<Ryan52>sniggels: it doesn't automatically...
01:10<sniggels>It did, I didnt edit fstab or used mount command
01:11<sniggels>its under /media, locate didn't find the files on the drive even after updatedb
01:11<superme>sniggels: sudo mkdir /media/toto && sudo mount /dev/hd[your hd] /media/toto
01:11<tlmiller>probably because mounted file systems are omitted from updatedb by default
01:11<sniggels>aaaah ok
01:12<sniggels>that make sence
01:12<superme>Ryan52: or "me" or whatever ^^
01:12<tlmiller>You can change that behavior by updating the config
01:12<sniggels>filename ?
01:12<superme>Ryan52: for english speakers i should say /media/bob
01:13<Ryan52>superme: okay. makes more sense. what language do you speak?
01:13-!-path [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
01:13<superme>sniggels: once is mount, ls /media/bob (what you put in mkdir)
01:13<tlmiller>sniggels, man updatedb.conf
01:13<superme>Ryan52: French
01:14<Ryan52>ah. cool.
01:14<sniggels>updatedb.conf ok, thanks

01:18<Ryan52>ya, right.
01:18<Ryan52>whatever, just remove it whatever you have thats not linux-image-2.6.25-1-686
01:19<superme>Ryan52: ... i want to be sure to be able to connect it back after ! ^^
01:19<Ryan52>err linux-image-2.6.25-2-686
01:19<Ryan52>make sure you leave a kernel there...
01:20<superme>the atl2 will still in 2.6-26 version, so i can't connect after
01:20<Ryan52>you need to get the atl2 for the old version
01:21<superme>i can't find it there's only the latest one

01:24<superme>Ryan52: no, i don't know use snapshot. aptitude only ...
01:24<superme>i launch snapshot
01:25<Ryan52>aptitude only has 1 version
01:25<Ryan52>you can get the versions from other debian versions
01:25<Ryan52>but other wise you have to use snapshot
01:25-!-newsense [] has joined #debian
01:26<sniggels>is there a way to add a progress bar to cp command withought making a different sh script ?
01:26<superme>i don't find it (aptitude install or either)

01:30<Ryan52>every version thats ever been in debian
01:30<superme>(i don't realise dpkg is a robot ?)
01:30<Ryan52>so if version 1 didnt work, you can install it from there and it wont work
01:30<Ryan52>but if version 2 did work you can install it from there and it will owrk
01:30<Ryan52>but you claim that you know a certain version worked, so you can install it from there.
01:31<superme>ok. For one specific version, snapshot is a solution
01:31<s3a>Ryan52, enouf, I am still lost on what to do, can we restart plz
01:32<Ryan52>s3a: did you read the documentation?
01:32<superme>i check the atl2 version and ? when i find it, how i get / install it ?
01:32<Ryan52>superme: you download it. you 'sudo dpkg -i file.deb' it

01:36<enouf>s3a: /etc/init.d/*dm restart (where * is a g, or a k , or x)
01:36<Ryan52>s3a: compiz --replace only affects the current window manager.
01:36<Ryan52>enouf: or a l. dont leave out ltsp :)
01:36<tlmiller>compiz --replace does an in-place replace doesn't it? I didn't think it held through a restart/boot
01:36<Ryan52>tlmiller: ya.
01:37-!-s3a [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
01:37<tlmiller>I'm still thinking it's his theme

01:38-!-s3a [] has joined #debian
01:38<enouf>s3a add this to your ~/.bashrc
01:38<tlmiller>I'm liking the dynamics of xrandr. I'm reading those docs trying to figure out how to manage external displays without restarting X. :)
01:39<Ryan52>I could swear I already told him to...
01:39<tlmiller>You did
01:39<enouf>s3a: run update-alternatives --config x-session manger (and x-window-manager)
01:40<s3a>enouf, do i put the brackets stuff as a command?
01:40<enouf>everything., exactly as shown
01:41-!-KnuckOne [] has quit [Read error: No route to host]
01:41<enouf>what i don't understand is why your .bashrc sucks
01:41<Ryan52>maybe he switched linux distros?
01:41<enouf>unless you're root user now
01:41<s3a>Ryan52, enouf, im new to debian
01:42<Ryan52>s3a: but its not the default
01:42<s3a>enouf, is the word "run" part of the command?
01:42<tlmiller>maybe he pasted a chsh somewhere along the way
01:42<enouf>s3a: what you pasted is not any debian file, as i've ever seen
01:42<enouf>i should say a .bashrc i mean
01:42<s3a>enouf, well im using a debian lenny system, dualbooting with ubuntu but im planning to remove ubuntu as soon as lenny is stable
01:43<enouf>s3a: ls -l /bin/sh

03:44<Ryan52>so, basically, your screwed. unless you can make the current one work. or if you have the versions in your apt cache still, which you probably dont...
03:45<superme>i try to upgrade the madwifi to 2.6.26, but it seems complicated to. I get the .deb, dpkg -i don't want install it, i guess because of the madwifi 2.6.25 is still there ( ? )
03:46<Ryan52>so your real problem is that you dont know how to install a package, not that you need the old one...
03:46<Ryan52>well, if you have a real error message I can help.
03:47<superme>Ryan52: no the main pb is the 2.6.26 have some bugs for the eeepc.

04:22-!-habtool [] has joined #debian
04:25<Golfgeo>I would guess the duplicate image of two monitors can be done. Yet is it possible too replicate one screen onto an other if the view is larger?

04:37<Ryan52>ad-hoc -- dunno
04:37<Ryan52>but I think you want your system to act as a WAP, right?
04:37<crazyb0y>is it called ad-hoc? when i want to use my card as router ?
04:37<Ryan52>your card cannot be a router...
04:37<crazyb0y>Ryan52: on windows it can be..
04:37<Ryan52>okay, I get what your trying to do
04:38<Ryan52>it's not a router
04:38<crazyb0y>i want to use this card as AP
04:38<Ryan52>ya, theres a big difference
04:38<crazyb0y>and other computer to connect trough this card

04:40<crazyb0y>can you give me a howto, or some docs to read please
04:40<Ryan52>are you on a network with DHCP and all of the stuff you need? or is this system connected directly to the internet?
04:40<crazyb0y>directly connected to internet
04:40<crazyb0y>without dhcp
04:40<Ryan52>you don't need DHCP. but you need to setup your system as a gateway, I guess the word is...
04:40<crazyb0y>Ryan52: already done
04:41<crazyb0y>the card is installed on a Linux router that manages 3 networks with LAN

04:42-!-mode/#debian [+l 329] by debhelper
04:42<crazyb0y>how can i set it to be WAP?
04:42<Ryan52>you need to put it into master mode.
04:42<Ryan52>and then bridge it with your regular network.
04:42<crazyb0y>i have two ifaces wlan0 and wmaster0
04:42<enouf>that's typical
04:42<Ryan52>wlan0 is what you want to use
04:42<crazyb0y>when i configured wlan0 it works
04:42-!-zhua278 [~yzh424@] has left #debian []
04:43<crazyb0y>but as a client
04:43<crazyb0y>i want to use it as wap
04:44<crazyb0y>thanks i will take a look at this
04:45<Ryan52>crazyb0y: this looks like an okay howto:
04:45<Ryan52>except youd use wlan0 instead of ath0, of course
04:46-!-nesoustredeny [~nesoustre@] has joined #debian
04:46<Ryan52>if you dont need all that fancy stuff, then at least the interfaces file is useful
04:46<crazyb0y>yes thanks i will not use bridge
04:47<crazyb0y>i will use NAT =)
04:48<Ryan52>this is if it's just a regular old WAP
04:48<Ryan52>where it's on a NATed network.
04:48<Ryan52>but wouldnt you want to bridge the wireless with the wired network?

11:58<dpkg>You can run X11 apps over an ssh connection so that neither <xhost> nor X tcp support are necessary. Enable X11Forwarding *on the remote server* (/etc/ssh/sshd_config) and install xbase-clients (etch) or xauth (lenny) on both the client and the server. Then "ssh -X" from the client and run X apps on the remote machine. Authorisation is only given to your remote user to connect and $DISPLAY is set. Also ask me about <root x>.

11:59<yogahnee>thanks a lot I will test this
12:00<MrNaz`>how hard is it to replace exim4 with postfix in a debian install ?
12:01-!-goeb [] has quit [Quit: Verlassend]
12:01<yogahnee>apt-get install postfix should make it default
12:01<fxiny>to replace it is pretty easy , then you have to read decent postfix docs
12:01-!-octoserver [] has joined #debian

12:02<yogahnee>is there any real difference if you use the install remove etc. syntax?
12:03<MrNaz`>yogahnee doesnt look like it... aptitude just notified me that its removing exim4 and related packages for me and i only did the install
12:03<octoserver>anyone know what would cause control center to crash when clicking on the screensaver icon ?
12:03<fxiny>MrNaz`: are you upgrading to lenny ?

17:00<stevecotton>tlmiller: well, the Debian Way is to use the debian package for it. Although I'm using the non-packaged way, it is annoying (have to reinstall the nvidia stuff whenever the kernel or xorg is updated).
17:00<Ryan52>tlmiller: it's not the debian way...
17:00<Ryan52>I like the packaged. it works, and I trust it more.

17:09<stevecotton>cwood - it appears to be using both X11 and DBus, according to strace. Probably better to look at the source to work out what it's doing.
17:09<dpkg>methinks strace is a system call tracing utility. Run it like so: 'strace -f -o LOGFILE EXEC'.. A good way to diagnose problems
17:10<cwood>stevecotton: aha, thank you. I wonder off the bat if ssh'ing in will let me connect to an already running dbus. Hm.

17:55<seeker>i have two problems both of which are driving me nuts. first i have a chromatic research mpact2 video on motherboard and can not find specific debian drivers for it. i am useing vesa now but if left alone for an hour or more the screen does not come back as it was
17:56<aslag>I used an etch install cd to set up lvm + encryption on a n box and I'd like to compile a patched kernel. What do I need to do get device mapper support, lvm support, and dm_crypt support so that I can boot a custom kernel?
17:57-!-faw [] has joined #debian
17:59<Ryan52>aslag: base it off of debian's kernel with the configuration already there to do that. or ask somewhere else. custom compiled kernels aren't part of debian...

18:01<aslag>Ryan52 why do you supposed make-kpkg exists and is in deb repositories?
18:01<seeker>Ryan52: do you have an answer to my chromatic research video driver problem?
18:01<Ryan52>aslag: if you use that, then of course it's debian. but if your using all stuff, then no...
18:02-!-spector [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
18:02<Ganneff>its not debian. its an own kernel build with on modifications. it is just a .deb so your package management knows it.
18:02-!-tlmiller [] has quit [Quit: Shoom!]
18:03<aslag>of course a custom kernel wouldn't be "debian" in the sense that it wouldn't be distributed by debian (duh, it's my own kernel). But that's different than ryan's assertion, namely that asking about making custom kernels is silly (or whatever) because making them is unsupported or "not a part of debian"

18:04<aslag>this can't be all THAT hard, I'm just looking for a few tips; I suppose t neither of you brain-drains know how to do it, eh?
18:04-!-mattl [] has left #debian [Ex-Chat]
18:05<Ganneff>i just patch and then build with it. you want to read the man page/docs for it if you want more.
18:06<aslag>do you use make-kpkg to help you with the initrd or do you build that cowboy-style? I tried to use make-kpkg but it barfed on my kernel config. That is the reason I came here and asked about it; perhaps I'm misusing the tool or something

21:06<Ryan52>maybe .28 will...
21:06<Ryan52>so you'll have to use the kernel from etch
21:06<Ryan52>2.6.27 does work as a domU, though.

23:18<dpkg>hold is a status flag which tells apt (or aptitude) not to automatically upgrade a package. To hold a package, 'echo pkgname hold|dpkg --set-selections', or 'aptitude hold package', or use = in aptitude's curses interface. You can ignore a hold by using apt-get install foopkg; or by using + in aptitude's curses interface. [Note that this is *NOT* the same as packages which have been "held back" for dependency reasons.]
23:18<grendelson>Ahh so by running aptitude in curses inetrface I should be able to see all files currently on hold....

23:42<grendelson>enouf - when I try apt-get dist-upgrade the most common error is that libldap is required - when I try to install it I get an error that libldap2 must be uninstalled but dirmngr fails... when I run aptitude I get so many package dependency errors it craps out....
23:43<grendelson>I am trying to post the output of aptitude remove dirmngr
23:44<gnomefreak>hi my OS keeps loading on a very ugly resolution 640x480 how do I fix this?
23:44<grendelson>some small progress - when I tried to run aptitude remove dirmngr it failed as ususal but actually posted 27 broken at end of cmd execution...
23:44<gnomefreak>hi my OS keeps loading on a very ugly resolution 640x480 how do I fix this?
23:46<grendelson>enouf there is my dirmngr trying to uninstall (with dpkg manually)
23:46<grendelson>with that unable to uninstall I can't remove libldap2 and can't install libldap-2.4-2
23:46<grendelson>seems to be the lynchpin so to speak....

23:48<piper>apt-cache depends libldap2 <libldap2> hmm
23:48<enouf>grendelson: ok, looking
23:48-!-MrNaz`` [] has joined #debian
23:48<grendelson>thanks so much - I hate script errors I don't know enough about the scripting install and uninstall to know what to attack....
23:48<enouf>piper: i know - i;m thinking a cyclic depends
23:49<piper>lol ;)
23:49<enouf>but i can't do rdepends because libldap2 is not in testing/unstable
23:49<gnomefreak>can someone help with my problem?
23:49<grendelson>aptitude offers to replace libldap2 to fix dependency errors but then dirmngr fails to uninstall to let libldap2 uninstall....
23:49<gnomefreak>I have no options to change my resolution
23:50<gnomefreak>its stuck at 640
23:50<enouf>the headers (-dev) are though
23:50<gnomefreak>is there some sort of way to reboot it?
23:50<grendelson>gnomefreak -Are you running debian linux?
23:50-!-eald [~eald@] has joined #debian
23:50<gnomefreak>of course
23:50<gnomefreak>in the preferences
23:51<gnomefreak>I goto resolution
23:51<gnomefreak>all I see is 640x480
23:51<gnomefreak>nothing more =S

23:51<gnomefreak>you think this will help me?

23:52<grendelson>That's what I was trying to think of - but you will need to make sure you select the resolutions you are sure your monitor supports

23:53<gnomefreak>this is what it has always been
23:53<gnomefreak>I never shutdown the system but today I had to
23:53<gnomefreak>when I rebooted..I got this =S
23:53<enouf>grendelson: apt-cache --purge remove dirmngr ?
23:53<gnomefreak>so what do you think?
23:53<grendelson>WHen you upgraded you probably allowed the Xorg.conf to get rewritten
23:53<enouf>grendelson: apt-get --purge remove dirmngr ?
23:53<grendelson>enouf Let me try....
23:53<enouf>grendelson: pastebin any errors

23:55<eald>hi, I'm using debian unstable and from one month or so my ipod (nano) is being automonted just as an usb storage device, any lead to which package could be the problem? I'm not sure to understand how hal and dbus works and interacts with the rest.
23:55<enouf>i mean, i always drop to runlevel 1 prior to any major upgrade ;-)
23:56<enouf>eald what;s the problem?
23:56<dpkg>automounter is probably a program that automatically mounts filesystems on demand. Useful for networked or removeable media (floppies, USB sticks, CDs, DVDs, NFS, CIFS, etc.). See <autofs>, <amd>. <automount>
23:56<dpkg>Ask me about <gnome-volume-manager>, <kde automount>, <ivman>, <autofs> or <thunar-volman>.

23:57<grendelson>enouf I was getting errors from first command and I tried some of the corrective steps (apt-get -f) (apt-get -f auto-remove) it removed the unneeded packages but again choked on dirmngr uninstall.
23:57<eald>enouf: usually the ipod is detected as an IPod and that means that the icon has a menu entry "Eject" which teels to the ipod that it could be disconected
23:58-!-gango [~gango@] has joined #debian
23:58<enouf>grendelson: try dpkg -P dirmngr
23:58<eald>and now that is only mounted as an usb storage it doesn't do that
23:58<enouf>gango: try deborphan and debfoster at this point
23:58<enouf>grendelson: ^^^
23:58<enouf>grendelson: i need to see the errors
23:58-!-lavaramano [~lava@] has quit []
23:58<gnomefreak>what in it do I edit?
23:59<enouf>all of them ... well - on the commands i tell you
23:59<grendelson>enouf - Right - I''m using cmd line so I'm trying to pipe out erros and work in paster in Lynx... not used to it - sorry....
23:59<enouf>eald: i'm pretty sure, you can just run eject /dev/sdaX or whatever it's named as
