02:05<p_quarles>could someone point me to what file controls the system beep, and how? I have a problem with my laptop occasionally shouting in crowded places :)
02:06-!-Alam_Debian [] has joined #debian
02:07<dmoerner>p_quarles: blacklist pcspkr in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist. on sid and maybe lenny you will have to blacklist snd-pcsp as well.
02:10<p_quarles>dmoerner, done, and thanks :) -- I won't know immediately if it works, tho, since this is only an issue after resume
02:10-!-zevarito_ [] has joined #debian
02:10<dmoerner>p_quarles: there are about 10 thousand ways to disable the beep. make sure it isn't beeping on resume in the bios
02:11-!-mtnman [] has joined #debian
02:11<p_quarles>dmoerner, the BIOS config options on this thing are dreadful, so there is no easy way to change that; is there a way to control it through Xorg?
02:12-!-yvesC [] has joined #debian
02:12-!-superme [~superme@] has joined #debian
02:12<dmoerner>p_quarles: if its set to beep on resume in the bios linux can do nothing about it. if you just want to disable the beep in X then just run "xset b 0"
02:12<dmoerner>or at least thats true for my thinkpad
02:14<superme>hi again. Anybody to help me with JFS, about resize it. Actualy i try to manage the mount command : "mount -a -t jfs -o remount, resize /media/disk" ...
02:14<p_quarles>dmoerner, it doesn't just beep on resume; it beeps on certain keyboard events after resume -- if I can just silence it, that'll satisfy me; thanks for the options
02:15<dmoerner>superme: you cannot make jfs partitions smaller, to my knowledge. you can make them bigger using that mount command though
02:16<superme>dmoerner: i did read it, effectly, but i want to grown up this one (to make it full the disk)

03:26<franklin>soniker89, mandvd isn't packaged for Debian (apt-cache search mandvd). I don't do video editing, but there are probably alternatives.
03:26<techbee>dpkg, tell soniker89 about debian-mulitmedia

04:35<MadHag>etc for etc etc etc :)
04:35-!-Alam_Debian [] has joined #debian
04:36<MadHag>looks like a setting in DirectAdmin
04:36<MadHag>man this thing is taking over my OS
04:37<franklin>MadHag, the apache directive is "Options" (like "Options +Indexes").... in a nicer UI, it may say "allow listing files in directories".
04:37<MadHag>ok, so whats the answer again, I missed it :)

04:39-!-hookares [~danil@] has joined #debian
04:39<MadHag>ok, but where is it altered

04:44<franklin>MadHag, In a typical instalaltin,; it can be overridden in /etc/apache/site-available/*
04:44<MadHag>Options +Includes -Indexes
04:44<MadHag>I will remove -Indexes and see what happens
04:45<franklin>MadHag, change -Indexes to +Indexes
04:45<MadHag>ok, thats easier

04:59-!-swo [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
05:01<franklin>MadHag, DA could use a different file. BTW, Debian usually uses apache.conf)
05:01<franklin>MadHag, ... or it concatenates files (/etc/apache2/*.conf ...)

05:04<franklin>MadHag, then add "Options +Includes"
05:04-!-brainbug [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
05:04<franklin>MadHag, (that's how the demo server is configured ;)
05:05<MadHag>thats right, you can just add and not edit the file you can see
05:06<MadHag> Modifying this file is not recommended as any changes you make will be
05:06<MadHag># overwritten when the user makes any changes to his/her website
05:07<MadHag>it might be wiser for me to allow anon ftp access and allow people to get stuff from there
05:08<franklin>MadHag, You probably have a similar option con configure the website's httpd.conf files (as user)... but I can't find it.

05:31<solaristic>MadHag: "free -m" tells you how much RAM is actually used by processes and how much is used for file caching. the second line is the actual usage.
05:31<themill>!free ram
05:31<dpkg>Unlike information, your computer's memory does *not* want to be free. Free RAM is wasted RAM! Linux tries to use free physical memory for caching files from disk which speeds up disk access considerably. Linux releases RAM from these caches if programs need it. If you want to know how much physical memory the free(1) tool says you have left for program use, it's 'free' + 'buffers' + 'cache'. Also ask me about <swapwake>.
05:31<MadHag>yes it was that that got my attention

05:44<franklin>mrnice`, If one had put a slowdown, wouldn't the ping time be increased ?

09:21<franklin>damo, Once you get used to it, if you want more freedom, and you want "contribute back", you will be welcome to switch to Debian.
09:22<franklin>damo, (Actually, you could contribute anyway).
09:22<danih>franklin: with the installer debian is pretty doable too for beginners don't you think?
09:22<tzafrir_laptop>anyway, I have an Etch linux-vserver . I'd like to add a Lenny guest. What's the path of least resistance?
09:22<damo>is debian like ubuntu?
09:22<franklin>danih, definetly.
09:23<franklin>damo, Ubuntu is based on Debian.
09:23<danih>im quite new to linux myself but i've encountered no problems installing and configuring
09:23<damo>like does it have package manager ect and does it auto connect to the net?
09:23<danih>i ran ubuntu aswell but i'd choose debian anytime again :-)
09:23<franklin>Debian was meant, from the first day, to have"derivative" for specific purposes.
09:23<tzafrir_laptop>the installer is a bit different. The package manager is quite the same
09:24<tzafrir_laptop>"a bit" may be an understatement
09:24-!-NCommander [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
09:24<danih>damo: if you are comfortable with an installer that is text-based instead of a pretty GUI you could try debian because it's pretty self-explaining aswell
09:25<danih>else you should start getting to know linux by installing ubuntu
09:25<franklin>danih, the installer is very good and easy to use (since Etch, I would say). but I think Ubuntu is making good job for beginner.
09:25<danih>franklin: i think they are too, but in my experience the best thing to do when you want to learn about using and configuring linux is to dive straight in

09:27<tzafrir_laptop>actually at this stage it might be useful to look at Lenny

09:30<franklin>danih, we should all be modest... Debian is 22000+ packages. It would take many lives to know every thing ;)
09:31<danih>that's true
09:32<danih>i just thought that starting with a distro that doesn't make you do anything "difficult" does not make your ready for installing a more advanced distro so you could aswell dive straight in

13:02<Woet>let me explain again then
13:02<Woet>People visit their control panel, and enter their old and new password. Then my PHP script connects to SSH, and wants to change their password.

13:05<franklin>so you can grant "sudo chpasswd" for that user.
13:05<Woet>Then I should grant that to a few thousand users.

15:37<eruc>Hi. I'm currently trying to install nvidia drivers following the exemple on debian wiki. ( Unfortunatly, after installation, I find myself in front of a blank screen. X11 doesnt want to display anything. I then went to the troubleshooting section and found out nvidia wasnt loaded into the kernel, so i fix that. Same problem still. Kept reading the troubleshooting and also found out that X does
15:37<eruc>"nvidia_drv.o". I then look at solution (which is running "gcc -shared nvidia_drv.o -o" in the apropriate location) and execute it. Unfortunatly, i get this error:

15:49<blal>dmoerner : ya see, Azureus uses a (lame) Windows-style strategy for downloading and installing plugins (the user downloads and installs plugin .jar's).

15:52<dmoerner>rbrito: lucas nussbaum for instance handles rebuild tests of sid with an amd64 cluster, i think.

15:54<dmoerner>why do you want to rebuild the archive?

15:54<dmoerner>ah well good luck then. you might want to try asking in debian-devel
15:54<dpkg>it has been said that apt-build is an apt-get front-end for recompiling packages; . Warning -- this program will not optimize your packages for you as advertised; the gcc O flags and friends that you specify are not even parsed properly. In a breath, don't bother with it, because apt-get source/build-dep is far more useful.
15:55<abrotman>there have been numerous articles on using apt-build to rebuild your entire system

20:05<dmoerner>you should definitely use lenny
20:05<Juniper>so I tried installing 4.0r4 again but it wasn't detecting my DHCP network for some reason, even though it detected it the first time
20:05<Juniper>so my friend suggested Lenny from there
20:05<Juniper>I'll check this wiki
20:06<Juniper>It is critical that the kernel version in the boot.img.gz image and the net-install ISO are the same! If they are not the same, the installer will not be able to detect your hardware and will fail before it gets anywhere.

21:43<abrotman>ask a better question
21:44<dmoerner>Juniper: when you boot in grub, hit "e" to edit the entries, go down to the kernel line, and then append noacpi (or it might be acpi=off...i can't remember) to the line. then press enter to save it and b to boot
21:44<asa>ok, sorry, i'm trying to install ndiswrapper and nevermind i just figured it out, lol
21:44<asa>i think....
21:44<Juniper>Okay, I will try this dmoerner. Thank you.

21:45<flypiper>Juniper, your sure that the has the same kernel as the netinst.iso your installing??
21:46<flypiper>Juniper, there is a CRITICAL note that they must be the same or the installer won't detect your hardware

21:46<dmoerner>Juniper: oh wait is this off of a livecd? in that case do what abrotman told you earlier. hit F1 at the syslinux splash screen

21:46<dmoerner>not livecd but the debian installer. sorry for the typo
21:46<abrotman>it's off the instlaler AFAIK
21:49-!-asa [] has joined #debian
21:49<Juniper>I am not sure, I'll be honest.
21:49<Juniper>But I'd like to try this method first, before rewriting the USB drive, since it takes some times.
21:49<Juniper>I downloaded the files on the Wiki, which I assume have the same kernel...
21:49<Juniper>So if this doesn't work, I'll make a new Live USB stick using those two files.
21:49-!-Juniper was kicked from #debian by debhelper [use the paster bot or #flood]
21:50<asa>ok, so here is my question, i'm trying to compile and run a ndiswrapper module and i'm having an issue now finding my source for my current kernel in a .deb package can i use the one from with the same version number?

22:02<Juniper_>Is it simply pressing Esc like a friend told me to? When I try to load the Installer, I press Esc, and it gives me a "boot: _" line. I read the Help section when I pressed F1 and from what I understand I have to specific what kind of installation I want and the "boot parameters" i.e. "boot: install noacpi" (this is what I got, but I'm not sure if I'm right...)

22:11<Juniper>If I put Debian on here
22:11<flypiper>download a live CD and check it out

23:18<jon_>its a network boot setup, so as i think about it i'm confused on how the udev-rules can be accessed at that point
23:18<jon_>the interface needs to be properly configured to mount the root-filesystem via nfs
23:19<qq->some times i need to do that trick many times/ many reboots ...
23:19<jon_>as the interface cant be configured due to the namechange, how could the rulefiles affect naming ? :o
23:19<damo>whats a operating system like ubuntu? with a desktop interface?
