00:34<dpkg>The nvidia drivers are still a mess in lenny. If you can help sort them out before lenny releases, then please do. In the mean time, first ask me about <nvidia_lenny_1> then <nvidia_lenny_2> i.e. /msg dpkg nvidia_lenny_1
00:35<Student>wake up

00:37<Student>ok dokie
00:37<Student>help me regarding the routing issue
00:38<oipunx>i dunno.. never used vpn
00:40<simonrvn>Student: just ask the channel your question
00:41<Student>i did
00:41<Student>the problem is i have a default route to my VPN server
00:42<Student>if i flush the ip route table, delete and setsup new ip address for the default route, the vpn connection get lost
00:42<simonrvn>um... your default route is what routes packets from your box to the remote host
00:42<simonrvn>via the configure destination router
00:42<Student>basically it is the address of remote NS
00:42-!-freealan [] has joined #debian
00:42<Student>and it is configured my network applet
00:43<simonrvn>yeh, and by killing the default route, those local packets don't get routed
00:43<Student>but when i establish A Tunnel , i am unable to route my traffic
00:43<simonrvn>kernel doesn't know where to send them
00:43-!-grim_fandango [] has quit [Quit: Ex-Chat]
00:44<Student>so i am not sure how can i send the packets to the other side of the tunnel when the Default Gatway is set to the name server of Vpn server
00:44<Student>i am stuck

00:45-!-kill-9 [] has joined #debian
00:45<Student>do you get the idea of the problem simonrvn?
00:46<simonrvn>you need to set it to somewhere where it'll actually work. that won't, unless it's local. your immediate closest hop.
00:48<Student>where should i set it up? :)P
00:48-!-beia_ [] has quit [Quit: Saindo]
00:48<Student>as soon as i delete it , my vpn connection get lost

00:51<Student>very funny
00:51<dpkg>To use an NVIDIA graphics card with Debian, see If you've done it before, ask me about <nvidia one-liner> for a reminder. If using a later release than Etch, ask me about <nvidia_post_etch> or <nvidia_lenny>. drivers (ie. <nvidia-installer>) are _not_ supported in #debian, please go to #nvidia (
00:51<Student>any other suggestion? :)
00:51<dpkg>The nvidia drivers are still a mess in lenny. If you can help sort them out before lenny releases, then please do. In the mean time, first ask me about <nvidia_lenny_1> then <nvidia_lenny_2> i.e. /msg dpkg nvidia_lenny_1
00:51<dpkg>hmm... nvidia_lenny_2 is 5) update-pciids 6) apt-get install module-assistant 7) dpkg -i *nvidia-kernel-source*.deb 8) m-a prepare 9) m-a a-i nvidia 10) dpkg -i *nvidia-glx*.deb 11) depmod -a 12) modprobe nvidia 13) dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg

01:02<ioerror>I have a machine with two 640GB disks. I want to raid1 these two disks and then setup an encrypted root fs on top of the raid 1.
01:03<ioerror>Trying to use etch, I was unable to do this because of various bugs in the installer.
01:03<ioerror>Switching to lenny, I was able to create a raid1 device but then it does not show up in the guided partitioning menu. That menu only shows my two raw disks.
01:04<ioerror>Is there something that I can do to make /dev/md0 show up as a device in that menu?

01:20-!-jm_ [] has joined #debian
01:20<beia_>from memory, nvidia_lenny_1 is 1) add "deb-src sid main contrib non-free" to /etc/apt/sources.list, replacing de with your country code 2) apt-get update 3) apt-get build-dep nvidia-graphics-drivers 4) apt-get -b source nvidia-graphics-drivers

01:31<Presently>Hello. I used debootstrap to install debian on to my main partition a while ago. Oddly, though, the proccess seems to not have created /dev/hda*. Shouldn't debootstrap do execute this step?
01:31<EmleyMoor>Is the system working?
01:31<fdv>on SATA disks?
01:32<Presently>On ATA (the old default; the lappy is from 2005).
01:33<Presently>That system is, at present, unbootable.
01:33<fdv>do u mean PATA?
01:33<Presently>I have not yet installed a kernel.
01:33-!-Shimei|Portable [~Shimei|] has joined #debian
01:33<Presently>fdv: Possibly.
01:35<Presently>Sorry, that's one question I am not readily able to answer. I'm looking in to it, though.
01:36-!-shashi [~shashi@] has joined #debian
01:37<Presently>Hmm. All I see is IDE.

01:46-!-eddieB [] has left #debian []
01:47<Presently>jm_: Indeed. There is obviously some thing which I have missed which creates the nodes; but no where does is there mention of having to do so manually.
01:47<EmleyMoor>Why would 25 updates be equal to a download of 111 files?
01:47-!-Zylvain [] has joined #debian
01:49<jm_>Presently: did you run 'mount --bind /dev /target/dev' in chroot?
01:49-!-alvarez [] has joined #debian
01:49<Presently>I did yesterday.
01:49<jm_>you need to do it everytime you chroot into it
01:49<Presently>Hmm. What if I want to boot in to it?
01:50<yang>I have problems with 2.6.26 and crypto , it doesn't let me enter password
01:50<jm_>what happens when you boot into it?
01:50-!-Vif18 [~padma@] has joined #debian
01:50<yang>exactly that
01:50-!-ceebydith [~Ceebydith@] has joined #debian
01:51<Presently>Nothing; I have only just installed a kernel. I couldn't figure out why it wouldn'n install; I thought it was supposed to create /etc/kern-img.conf. I just fixed that.
01:51<EmleyMoor>yang: Exactly what? Is it refusing your password? Not giving you a chance to even try it?
01:51-!-ceebydith [~Ceebydith@] has left #debian []
01:51<jm_>kernel doesn't install? surely there's an error then
01:52-!-mode/#debian [+l 348] by debhelper
01:52<Presently>jm_: Nah. Just a missed step on my part.
01:52<Presently>I just installed a kernel properly.
01:52<Presently>It did before the writing of /etc/kern-img.conf, but grub, when I tried to boot in to it, couldn't find any kernel.
01:53<Presently>Hopefully that's fixed.
01:53<yang>No, something like unable to mount /dev/... as crypto
01:54<yang>works in kernels up to 2.6.26
01:54<EmleyMoor>yang: I don't know much about it but the chances are anyone who does will need the full message

05:01<munga>hi all. In /etc/rcS.d/ I have a line: domtab tmpfs /dev "udev" -omode=0755 BUT I don't use udev ... is this a bug that assume that udev is in use ?
05:02-!-kapil [] has quit [Quit: leaving]
05:04<jm_>munga: no
05:05<munga>jm_: but then when I use MAKEDEV it says: udev active, devices will be created in /dev/.static/dev/
05:06<jm_>munga: so you are using udev then
05:06<munga>and of course if I try to create a device by hand , it disappears at the next reboot ...
05:06<munga>there is no udev running or being installed on my system...
05:07<jm_>why does it detect it then?
05:07<munga>dpkg --purge udev
05:07*dpkg drinks a glass of salty water, sticks his fingers down his throat and throws up udev all over munga and helmut...
05:07<munga>dpkg - warning: ignoring request to remove udev which isn't installed.
05:07<dpkg>You are moron #1, munga
05:07<jm_>try sh -x MAKEDEV then

05:08-!-Gozongas [] has joined #debian
05:12<munga>uhmmm this is a kind of a hack, isn't it ? ... I'll try to remove /dev/.static ... that should be a leftover from udev ... this is what MAKEDEV is actually checking to decide wheather udev is active or not ...

06:53<buffoon_work>MoL0ToV, i would consider you to backup /etc and maybe make an image of the whole machine before doing an upgrade of a production machine, but it shouldn't overwrite you configurations without asking

09:48<tom-bbl>i was thinking maybe something to do with unaligned memory access?
09:48<tom-bbl>the alpha that works, i see "unaligned memory exception" or whatever i can't remember the exact words
09:48<tom-bbl>the second alpha, it just seems to crash out
09:49<petemc>perhaps you could go back to the scrap heap that you got them from and get two more
09:50<petemc>but seriously, i definately dont know enough to help you
09:50<petemc>my knowledge doesnt extend passed using srm to boot debian
09:51<tom-bbl>ok thanks

11:35<MetalWolf>when booting up it just doesn't see the CD as bootable.
11:36<themill>MetalWolf: then you don't want ia64
11:36<dpkg>it has been said that ia64 is (Intel Architecture-64), a 64-bit processor architecture developed in cooperation by Intel and Hewlett-Packard, implemented by processors such as Itanium and Itanium 2. The goal of Itanium was to produce a "post-RISC era" arch using EPIC. See -- if your CPU is opteron/athlon64/turion/sempron/xeon/em64t/pentium/core2duo/core*, then it is NOT ia64, it's amd64.
11:36-!-narcan [] has joined #debian
11:36<MetalWolf>oh ok...

12:58<jthomas__>great question, not sure how well gnash works in general
12:59<dpkg>gnash is probably a GNU project to create a free software Flash player. Its developers plan on writing a stand-alone player and a browser plugin. Writing a free software Flash-player has been a priority of the GNU project for some time. See for more information. ask me about <gnash_etch>

14:41<aphexer>I'd like to patch apache for in-house use. How do I do this so debian package tools can work with these packages in a decent way?

14:45<dondelelcaro>aphexer: you don't need to patch apache for that

14:48<dondelelcaro>aphexer: suexec is just a tiny binary that is setuid and setuid()s to the appropriate user.
14:48-!-techbee [~atul@] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
14:48<dondelelcaro>aphexer: to change just that, you just rebuild suexec itself in the unpacked apache sources with the appropriate docroot, and then install it
14:49<aphexer>you suggest i install apache from the repositories, then manually replace suexec, outside of package manager's control?
14:49<dondelelcaro>aphexer: (after diverting the copy of suexec that apache installs)

15:45<Yuri->chealer, but in this way it will works?
15:45<sp>Yuri-: explicitly installing virtualbox-ose-modules-2.6-686 did the trick for me

16:17<Bach1685>so is there an even more recent netinst (an "unstable" one or something) which has >= 2.6.26?
16:18<chealer>Bach1685: ...meaning that if Linux 2.6.18 doesn't support the card, etch will never support it during installation.
16:18<Bach1685>No that's fine with me - I'm willing to build the driver myself

16:22<coucou>Bach1685: the build-essential package has dependencies on what you would need I think
16:22<Lethalman>KaiSVK, no way for java plugin
16:23<coucou>Bach1685: well, maybe not everythinf
16:23<themill>chealer: it's a modification of lenny d-i b2 that was released with etch-n-half for this purpose:

16:23<Lethalman>KaiSVK, you can create a chroot and run your browser from there, many people do it
16:23<chealer>quitte: the only problem with using 2.6.18 during installation is if the 2.6.24 functionality you want is "core", like network card drivers and HDD drivers. other improvements can be useful even if you don't get them during the install.

16:44<themill>petemc: not for gcc
16:44<Bach1685>"alternatives system"?
16:44<dpkg>alternatives is, like, is the way Debian manages multiple applications with the same function. For more info, man update-alternatives. Have a look at the galternatives package or ask me about <update-alternatives> <java alternatives>
16:44-!-Tuplad [] has left #debian []
16:44<themill>But the gcc version symlink is not managed through alternatives.
16:44<Bach1685>Still, I find it strange that "make" and "gcc" are not part of the base install

16:44-!-fuckyou is now known as fuckyou_
16:45<themill>Bach1685: many other things are managed through alternatives such as "pager" "x-www-browser" "ssh-ask-pass" "java" etc.
16:45<petemc>themill: why doesnt it do it for gcc?
16:45<Bach1685>it's safe to reboot after a modprobe, or do I need to add the module to some config file first..?
16:45<themill>petemc: because the gcc maintainers don't think it's a good thing for a user to be changing the system default gcc version.
16:45<Bach1685>or let me rephrase, are modprobed modules remembered across reboots?
16:46<themill>does modinfo e1000 list that pciid now?
16:46<themill>Bach1685: was e1000.ko installed into the kernel tree?
16:46<themill>err modules tree
16:46<petemc>themill: so they should explicitly call the correct version?
16:47<Bach1685>I'll look for that, themill
16:47<themill>petemc: something like that.
16:47<petemc>i guess that makes, im sure the gcc peeps know more than me
16:47<Bach1685>and petemc: um, no, by the looks of it
16:47-!-fuckyou_ [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
16:47<themill>petemc: that was my conclusion

16:47<Bach1685>and if I parse out the extra "0000" parts there, I see 8086/10B5 as the latest one

19:55<themill>aphexer: but if I had ~/bin/pronviewer that was normally 0700 so that others couldn't run it, suexec would then allow the remote web visitor to run this script contrary to the intention of the file permissions I had given it.
19:56<aphexer>ah no other user involved
19:56<dondelelcaro>aphexer: or imagine that you had a ~/bin/rmsomefiles or ~/bin/thermonuclearwar; would you want anyone to run those programs as your user?

20:00<dondelelcaro>aphexer: the right solution is to either have a /srv/www/username which is symlinked from ~/public_html or similar, or otherwise modify suexec to only allow executing things in ~/public_html
20:01<aphexer>hm suppose I do it like this: suexec's docroot in /home; Apache's docroot of that virtualhost in /home/user/web; and I put the suexec binary in a directory where only apache has access to.
20:01<aphexer>your solution does seem cleaner though

20:06<dondelelcaro>it wouldn't be the first time that apache had some kind of directory traversal attack
20:07<blal>Is there a command similar to bash's builtin "wait" that waits for a process to finish? The "wait" builtin is restricted to processes that are children of the current shell; I'd like to wait for a process that isnt'.
