02:00<TMcTrain_>now, its not so simple
02:00<TMcTrain_>its an redundand call of the script

02:38<MoL0ToV>hi to all! how to install amsn 0.97.2 on a debian etch?
02:38<MoL0ToV>in gentoo i unmask the unstable package, in debian how i can do this?
02:39<dpkg>First: See if the package has already been backported. Ask me about <backports>. If it hasn't, 1) Add a "deb-src ..." line ONLY for sid to your sources.list. 2) apt-get update 3) apt-get install build-essential; apt-get build-dep packagename;apt-get -b source packagename; 4) install the resultant debs. If you are just wanting to change the compilation options, ask me about <package recompile>, or see <uupdate> if sid is too old
02:39<craigevil>MoL0ToV: ^
02:39-!-artefact [] has joined #debian
02:40<MoL0ToV>is too complicated, i renounce, i have no time to spent for this
02:40<tzafrir_laptop>MoL0ToV, step (1) of it isn't
02:41<MoL0ToV>in this way i compile from sources instead than download precompiled packages?
02:41<tzafrir_laptop>ah, well, no stable backports
02:42-!-hw [] has quit [Quit: Quitte]
02:42<MoL0ToV>what is a backport?
02:42<MoL0ToV>a source compiled for old libraries?
02:43<tzafrir_laptop>a backport is basically building the newer sources on your current system
02:43-!-panagos [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
02:43<chealer>MoL0ToV: for old Debian suites, yes
02:43-!-panagos [] has joined #debian
02:43<MoL0ToV>how i can see if exist a backport of amsn for debian etch?
02:43-!-arthrotec [] has quit [Quit: Trillian (]
02:44<tzafrir_laptop>well, I see there isn't:
02:45<MoL0ToV>at point 1) dpkg say "only for sid"
02:45<chealer>MoL0ToV: for official backports you can check the tzafrir_laptop's URL. you see there that there is a backport for sarge, but none for etch
02:45<tzafrir_laptop>amsn has a build dependency on tk-8.5 . I have no idea how strict that dependency is
02:45<MoL0ToV>what means?
02:46<MoL0ToV>i can say to my etch to instal 8.5 and delete 8.4 of tcl?
02:46<MoL0ToV>i see that also gaim is not included in synaptics packages...
02:47<jm_>both versions of tk can coexist
02:47<MoL0ToV>so i can try to install tk 8.5
02:47<MoL0ToV>after that the dependencies are satisfacted theorically
02:48-!-SuperDale [] has quit [Quit: Lost terminal]
02:48-!-SeLEct [] has quit []
02:48<chealer>MoL0ToV: do you know what sid is?
02:49-!-pulsewave [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
02:49<chealer>!tell MoL0ToV about releases
02:51<MoL0ToV>sid means unstable?
02:51<chealer>MoL0ToV: be aware that backporting this yourself won't be trivial. at least, the instructions above won't be sufficient.
02:51<chealer>MoL0ToV: yes
02:52<MoL0ToV>so how i can installa amsn 0.97?
02:52<chealer>MoL0ToV: did you try searching for an unofficial amn 0.97 backport for etch?
02:52<MoL0ToV>i have tcl 8.4 installed
02:53<MoL0ToV>on the amsn web site are present a automatic installer for systems that have this old version of tcl
02:53<MoL0ToV>is a good idea to use it?
02:54-!-streuner [] has joined #debian
02:57-!-nihil [] has joined #debian
02:57<chealer>MoL0ToV: FYI, there's a amsn 0.97.2 backport for etch i386 there :
02:58<chealer>MoL0ToV: I'm not saying that's trustworthy
02:59<chealer>MoL0ToV: I wouldn't use that nor autopackage unless I'd have a good reason to use amsn 0.97.2

03:54<Nemoder>download something and see how long it takes?
03:55<Homere>hello, how long before Lenny ? and do we know when lenny's support will end ?
03:55<Nemoder>!lenny status
03:55<dpkg>Toolchain: frozen. Libs: frozen. Everything else: frozen. Now, it's serious bug squashing time. When will lenny release? Sooner if you help. See for ideas how you can help. See also <rc-alert>., or
03:56-!-derfel [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
03:57<Homere>and, why debian don't restrict a list of packages for servers that will be maintained several years ?
03:58<Homere>I need to move more than 2000 websites from PHP4 to PHP5 before next september, it's very difficult
03:58<Nemoder>stable releases get security updates for 2 or 3 years
03:58<Homere>but only 1 year after next stable. So Etch will be secure until october 2009.
03:59<Nemoder>yes but etch has been out for some time
04:00<Homere>security support is not long enougth for a server biased distribution
04:00<jm_>funny, normally people complain debian releases are too slow
04:01<Nemoder>he's complaining about both apparently, lenny too slow and etch not long enough :P
04:02<Homere>18 months is great between releases
04:02-!-craigevil [~craigevil@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
04:03-!-jas4711 [] has joined #debian
04:03<chealer>!tell Homere about wwlr
04:03<Homere>Debian is really stable and very easy to maintain
04:03<Homere>1 admin for 150 to 200 debian servers
04:04-!-pumpkin0 [] has joined #debian
04:04<chealer>Homere: there would be no point in doing that.
04:04<Homere>it works
04:05<Homere>every tuesday I upgrade all the servers, and there is no worry at all
04:05<[machine]>homere: don't forget to blame upstream... php4 is almost dead
04:05<Homere>I've tried this with a Fedora server and it sucked
04:06<Homere>[machine]: that's he very boring part, every 18 months there is the upstream upgrade.
04:06<Homere>we've started to forbid PHP4 and tell customers (managed LAMP servers) to try PHP5 instead
04:08<Homere>the problem is from PHP and MySQL. A Java/Oracle software will work many years, a PHP/MySQL one will work 3 years at most
04:09<jm_>how so? are you saying that the version you have installed stops working at that time?
04:09<Homere>using an unmaintained version of PHP4 is unsecure
04:09*[machine] shrugs, if the code is written half competently it should work with no problems
04:09<Nemoder>all my perl/mysql stuff survived sarge->etch without any issues
04:10<jm_>as opposed to maintained oracle release?
04:10<Homere>Nemoder: MySQL 4.0 > 4.1 was a pain due to joint changes

04:12-!-dleidert [] has left #debian []
04:12<tzafrir_laptop>Homere, there are those who restrict the set of packages. e.g. RHEL, that did not even include PHP4 in RHEL5 (released at about the same time as Etch)
04:12<Homere>for PHP, someone told me their software was made for PHP 5.2.1 and that it doesn't work with PHP 5.2.0
04:14-!-MoDaX [~nth@2002:54f0:1683::1] has joined #debian
04:15<prolix>1 person for 150-200 servers?
04:16<prolix>how is that possible?
04:18-!-parecen [] has joined #debian
04:18<prolix>let me rephrase that. how is that practical?
04:18<sajes>prolix: Routers. Also, lots of cronjobs.
04:19<seanius>Homere: it's possible that they are correct
04:20<seanius>Homere: it depends on the software, php upstream broke a lot of stuff in their 5.2.0->5.2.1 "minor update"
04:20<prolix>sajes: heh. makes sense, i suppose. what about cloud computing?
04:20-!-derfel [] has joined #debian
04:20<Homere>prolix: only Debian Etch 64bit, custom kernel, no compiles/external software
04:20<prolix>Homere: are these servers on a cluster?
04:20<Homere>prolix: no,
04:21<sajes>prolix: I've never messed with it. I'm not the "Have all my data on your hard disk" type of person ;).
04:21<prolix>have you heard of eucalyptus?
04:22<Homere>my servers are mainly LAMP servers for customers (managed)

04:23<prolix>right on

04:53<theocrite>hey hey
04:53<NaT[r]iMa>i've a couple of questions
04:54<Knight_Lord>NaT[r]iMa ask
04:54<NaT[r]iMa>first of all
04:54<NaT[r]iMa>i couldn't understand, reading some other experiences, if it'll be all so difficult or if i can do it by myself
04:56<parecen>NaT[r]iMa: is it a macbook with an intel cpu or with a powerpc cpu?
04:56-!-SysBot- [~mint@] has joined #debian
04:56<NaT[r]iMa>someone just spent days for this.. other users some hours
04:56-!-nowhereman [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
04:57<parecen>NaT[r]iMa: what kind of experiences with computers do you have? do you have a basic understanding of partitioning harddisks, looking up what drivers are needed for certain hardware components, etc?
04:57<NaT[r]iMa>it's an intel core 2 duo, 2.16 GHz
04:57-!-nowhereman [] has joined #debian
04:57<NaT[r]iMa>umh yes, more or less
04:57<NaT[r]iMa>i'm not so expert, i've never used linux on my computer
04:58-!-SysBot- [~mint@] has quit []
04:58<NaT[r]iMa>i think i could understand what's going on, installing a new os
04:58<parecen>NaT[r]iMa: to got a fist feeling of the operating system you plan to you, you could download a so called livecd that needs no installation
04:59<NaT[r]iMa>that's a good idea :) i'll try
04:59<NaT[r]iMa>i saw
04:59<NaT[r]iMa>manuals from
04:59<NaT[r]iMa>and some other guide written by "private" users
05:00<NaT[r]iMa>do you think i can find something exactly done for my mb?
05:00<parecen>NaT[r]iMa: i think these here are the right choice:
05:00<NaT[r]iMa>maybe with some known problems and stuffs like this
05:00-!-Deadguy [] has quit [Quit: leaving]
05:01<petemc>parecen: you cant get macbooks with ppc
05:02<parecen>NaT[r]iMa: you can either try a livecd and try some things without harming your currently installed OS, or you can research the web for debian related messages, articles, etc. that contains the chipset of your motherboard, the specific model of the powerbook
05:02<parecen>petemc: too bad :P
05:02<parecen>petemc: i would like that
05:02<petemc>you can look for an old powerbook
05:02<NaT[r]iMa>just to be sure, i need all the .iso files by that link, isn't it?
05:02<jm_>no, read the installation manual
05:03<kraft>how do i find out from the web what options have been included for a particular kernel?
05:03<NaT[r]iMa>jm_: o.o ?
05:03<jm_>kraft: you can't
05:03<theocrite>Is it really useful to sumbit bug reports on debian bts ? It seems rather random. Half of the bugs I saw didn't get answers after years and nothing seems to be done :/
05:03<kraft>i was looking for cvs version of config*
05:03<parecen>NaT[r]iMa: no, there is different flavours. gnome, kde and xfce are different desktop environments. if you are unsure for a start you can try
05:04<jm_>NaT[r]iMa: actuall there is no manual - you only need one based on the dekstop system you want to use (GNOME, KDE or XFCE) - there's also standard without desktops
05:04<NaT[r]iMa>parecen: i wanted to try kde
05:04<jm_>config is part of the package
05:04<kraft>jm_: so download package and look at the config file?
05:04<parecen>NaT[r]iMa: so its what you need to download, then burn "image to cdrom" and let it boot :)
05:04<jm_>kraft: that's what I do
05:04<NaT[r]iMa>just this
05:04<kraft>jm_: thanks
05:05<NaT[r]iMa>in this case i'm gonna be back soon with other questions :D
05:05<parecen>NaT[r]iMa: thats fine :)
05:05<NaT[r]iMa>thanks a lot guys
05:05<NaT[r]iMa>lucky me to arrive here
05:05<parecen>yeah, good luck

05:07-!-madrescher [] has quit [Quit: Leaving.]
05:07<theocrite>It's true that the upstream website is poor and only has a 'email' contact and a dowload page.
05:08<jm_>theocrite: tough luck, lots of bugs are still fixed though
05:09<parecen>theocrite: as it seems to me, these are only wishlist bugs
05:09<parecen>so its seems like neither upstream nor the debian maintainer care about those
05:10<kraft>jm_: thanks
05:10<parecen>theocrite: what you could do is to try to find related packages to fdupes
05:10<parecen>and see if they have better features
05:10<theocrite>parecen: well i think that the size sort is a really important feature. :/
05:11<theocrite>parecen: I tried but i didn't find anything for this.
05:11<parecen>theocrite: then you can try to email the maintainer of that package and ask politely whats up :)
05:11<theocrite>parecen: also #256335 already has a patch. Why is it ignored, this is sad :/
05:11<theocrite>I'll do this.

05:12*parecen checks something
05:13<parecen>theocrite: hang on :)
05:13<chealer>theocrite: the package seems to lack maintenance
05:13<theocrite>Another example : To have a translation in other language than de/en, billard gl requires to copy 5 files. It's totally safe, (only text files, no compilation or scripts required) and it's an important feature.
05:15<theocrite>This is something really important cause languages exists but aren't included. This causes a *lot* of people around the world that can't use this, or when they try, they are like "wtf is this free system, it is all in english".
05:15<parecen>theocrite: have you tried out the package fslint already? its listed as alternative to fdupes

05:19<parecen>theocrite: and about your wishlist bug #493918, the problem is this. some debian developers have much more stuff to do than what fits into a 24 hour day. additionally, they focus on fixing release critical bugs at the moment so lenny can be released
05:19<chealer>theocrite: it was
05:20<theocrite>Ah yes, 27/07/2008
05:20<theocrite>My bad.
05:20<theocrite>So frozen even applies for text files ? That's logical, but i don't thinkg a text file can add a bug.
05:21<parecen>source code is basically a text file too :)

05:23-!-SledgY [] has joined #debian
05:24<chealer>theocrite: it's possible to get translation "updates" unfrozen. but it's necessarily more work than normally
05:25<theocrite>parecen: Yeah I know it already, and I really grateful to(?) all people involved in Debian. But i think more feedback would be good. I'm involved in floss for some time now. So i knew where to ask, that i should be patient etc. But I think more and more people are using alternative OS and they are not always used of how it work. And they can be feel ignored.

05:28<parecen>theocrite: it seems to be little effort to do what you are looking for, and i think translations and documentations could get into the frozen testing archive, but ... i suspect the games team is too busy fixing release critical bugs at the moment to process wishlist bugs
05:31<theocrite>Yeah, they are probably busy, but just an anwser "we noticed it, we are too busy now, we'll fix it later" would be far enough. But it's ok they are doing a gread job already, I won't mind ;)
05:31<NaT[r]iMa>ermh, while transfer is going..anybody knows if using tiger is ok for bootcamp?
05:31<NaT[r]iMa>or should i get leopard?
05:31<chealer>theocrite: I don't know billiard gl, but from your bug report I'm under the impression that there are official and unofficial translations. if what you're asking is to diverge from upstream by including inferior translations, the maintainers may not want that. anyway, clarifying what upstream does and what Debian should do could speed up the resolution.
05:33<chealer>s/official and unofficial/2 qualities of/
05:34<theocrite>Hm yeah that's a good point. I don't know why it isn't included in the upstream (I actually considered it to be stupid). I'll email billard gl team this evening after word and ask them.

07:42<rahim123>and i can tell just by looking at some of the packages I use, VLC for example was always updated to the latest version in sid, but now since they froze lenny nothing has been updated in sid, and they put newer VLC releases in experimental

10:53-!-egns [~egns@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
10:54<ranix>sorry serge, I use XDMCP insecurely
10:55<ranix>so I do not know how to pipe it over ssh without just making a tunnel, which is clunky
10:55<serge>It works well for local network, like: X -query :1 will open at my PC gdm login dialog for given system. But the mentioned above is somewhere in the I-net, so there is only via ssh acces.
10:55<serge>ranix: I can't do it like you because of security requirements..
10:56<ranix>serge: I use X-forwarding over ssh instead in that case
10:56-!-egns [~egns@] has joined #debian
10:56<ranix>serge: is not the internet too slow for xdmcp?
10:56<ranix>you are piping video for the whole desktop rather than for just the single application
10:56<ranix>x-forwarding seems more suitable to me
10:57<serge>ranix: yes. it's clear. But I don't understand the way howto run it. No, my I-net is fast enogh.
10:58<ranix>is your local x-server running in windows, or linux

11:07<ranix>serge: oh right, note that Xephyr is capitalized X
11:08<ranix>just threw me for a loop
11:08<dgodfather>cahoot: i got to that conclusion by watching the output from free
11:08<themill>!free ram
11:08<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>.

11:10<dgodfather>themill: 10x but i can't find the process that does that

11:12<ragman13293>Question for the Gurus: After powerloss on my server, debian hangs with option to select booting up in single user mode, or debugging mode.

11:13<dgodfather>themill: what do you mean my kernel's cache of my files on disk?
11:13-!-padski [] has joined #debian
11:14<dgodfather>the kernel uses my memory to cache that files i have on my disk for fast access?
11:14<themill>dgodfather: just what dpkg said a couple of minutes ago. Rather than having to reread information from disk every time you access it, the kernel keeps as much of your disk in memory as it can, concentrating on the bits you have recently used in the hope that you will use them again. Thus when you type "ls", the program /bin/ls can be run without having to load it from disk first, it's already waiting in memory for you.
11:14<seanius>dgodfather: that's a good thing :)
11:14-!-yvesC [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
11:15<padski>what is the prog that speculatively reads stuff in ahead of time ?

12:28<dpkg>i guess purge is to completely wipe away a package, including its config files. Use aptitude purge [package] or if you already removed package with apt-get remove, and forgot config files you can use 'dpkg -P <package>' to remove configs. To purge all config files of all removed packages: aptitude purge '~c', or see <confmiss> about restoring individual config files
12:28<dr1v3r>thanks man :D
12:28<amphi>dr1v3r: or apt-get clean, perhaps
12:29<dr1v3r>clean just cleans up package files
12:29<dr1v3r>rectrieved package files should i say
12:29<amphi>'left over package files' was not entirely clear
12:29<themill>dpkg, purge dr1v3r
12:29<dpkg>no idea, themill
12:30<dr1v3r>i done it bud thanks

This HDD has the same geometry, size and partitions like the hdd of that living system and serves as a disaster fast replacement for system just for the case of crash.

14:37<pgimeno>maxb_: ouch, that hurts... I'm trying to migrate from etch to testing and it's asking me to remove xmms
14:37<pgimeno>maxb_: thanks
14:37<stew>helmut: there is a big difference between "this pacakge is unusable" and "this pacakge doesn't do this one thing i want it to do"
14:38-!-yvesC [] has joined #debian
14:38<maxb_>If xmms is in testing, chances are fairly good that it's just apt computing the upgrade in an undesirable way and it will *probably* be possible to just "apt-get install xmms" again after the main upgrade - but don't quote me on that.
14:39<suiside>serge: if you want to save time when rsyncing you might want to consider using the -u flag which will cause files to be transfered only if the target files modified date is older than the source files, also, if you want your backup to be a working system you propably want to recreate symilnks as well, look at the --links and --safe-links options, if you want to exclude directories you can use the --exclude or --filter options, ...
14:39<suiside>... check teh manpage for details
14:39<stew>maxb_: xmms isn't in testing
14:40<dpkg>xmms is probably the old X MultiMedia System media player. It has been removed from Debian (although it is still in etch), see For alternatives, look at <xmms2>, <rhythmbox>, <amarok>, exaile, songbird, quod libet ... see for removal reasons
14:40<helmut>stew: well, verification is one of the main uses of debsums. %-)
14:40<pgimeno>stew: thanks
14:40<serge>suiside: thank you. ...reading man rsync ;)
14:41<helmut>stew: still I don't want to waste your time with this anylonger and just report it as imporant.
14:41<pgimeno>is there any xmms2 front end with the same look'n'feel of xmms for us lovers of past times?

15:13<stew>pgimeno: no, there isn't
15:13<stew>parecen: testing and unstable should not be used with pinning if one is running stable

15:20-!-omer [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
15:20<stew>parecen: 1
15:20<parecen>stew: i see no such statement there
15:20<stew>parecen: reread it then
15:20<Hydroxide>parecen: using packages from testing and unstable breaks horribly when a release is not near, and especially so after a release has just happened
15:21-!-freex [] has joined #debian
15:21<Hydroxide>parecen: especially when things like libc6 are updated in testing/unstable and then nearly every package built after that Depends on a newer version of libc6 than is in stable
15:21<stew>"If you mix distributions, e.g., testing with stable or unstable with stable, you will eventually pull in core packages such as libc6 from testing or unstable and there is no guarantee that these will not contain bugs. You have been warned. "
15:21<parecen>dude. why would debian developers write an apt pinning howto and publish it for the users' happyness if all these false claims are true?
15:22<Hydroxide>parecen: apt pinning can be useful, but not for that particular use case
15:22<parecen>so i suggest you dont label your opinion as copy of an official statement if that simply does not exist
15:22<stew>parecen: pinning can be useful in stable, for instance see the instructions page at
15:22<Hydroxide>parecen: for example, apt pinning is a good way to combine stable and backports

15:23<stew>parecen: feel free to see the official warnings in the debian reference, for instance
15:23<parecen>stew: what you quoted is not even close to your claim
15:23-!-danilocesar [~danilo@] has joined #debian
15:24<parecen>"you have been warned" is absolutely compatible with my statement "use it with caution"
15:24<parecen>and you should definetly stop to try picking fights with other helpers now
15:24<Hydroxide>parecen: it's also compatible with "don't expect #debian to give support for that option"
15:24<parecen>Hydroxide: i am #debian aswell as you. and i support it
15:24-!-serge [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
15:24<Hydroxide>parecen: and that, therefore, is compatible with "don't recommend it to new users in #debian"
15:24<stew>parecen: do not advise people running stable to mix in packages from testing. point them to "/msg dpkg backports" or "/msg dpkg ssb" or "/msg dpkb bpo". packages from testing cannot be trusted to be free of bugs or security holes
15:25<parecen>dondelelcaro: could you please reach out for peace? i am massively annoyed and i feel like a poor victim of harassment right now
15:25<Hydroxide>parecen: nobody's insulting you personally.

15:26<stew>parecen: i'd also have to warn you about using ad-hominems in here. there is no reason to start calling people jerks. we are only trying to prevent you from giving out advice that could be harmful

17:32<blarson>IIRC grub does allow the user to specify the boot device, boot path etc. interactivly, so you should be able to boot anything on your system from any grub.

18:43<themill>mike: working out what package contains which perl module can be hard. Sometimes Net::Foo::Bar will be inside a package called libnet-foo-perl not libnet-foo-bar-perl. Apt-file solves that problem by doing a lookup directly on the filenames.

20:58<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.

22:50<dpkg>The enter key is not a substitute for punctuation. Hitting enter unecessarily makes it difficult to follow what you are saying. Consider using ',', '. ', ';', '...', '---', or ':' instead.
22:51<dpkg>rumour has it, ssh is Secure SHell, the ssh package in Debian is Portable OpenSSH ( or for windows clients ask me about <putty>, or for mac clients ask me about <niftytelnet> or MacSSH. It's _unwise_ to enable both RSA and pasword authentication. Ask me about <rsa>, or winscp for a GUI SCP client, or check out for an iptables-based firewall with built-in ssh brute force protection
22:51<dpkg>fdisk is the name used for several hard disk partition table editor programs for PC compatible computers. Before a hard disk can be used by an operating system on a PC, it must be divided into one or more logical disks called partitions. Ask me about <partitioning><gparted>.
