00:00<will01>dmoerner: I just did it again with the same result. I don't doubt something is amiss with this system. It's an older server that I recently apt-get dist-upgraded within my release and there were alot of updates.
00:00-!-notwhatsisname [] has quit []
00:00<Whatsisname>that was weird
00:01<Whatsisname>anyways, can anyone help me out quick
00:01-!-ebzzry [~rmm@] has quit [Quit: Leaving.]
00:01<dmoerner>will01: if apt-cache policy says "invalid operation" you need to reinstall
00:01<clint1986>Whatsisname: what's wrong?
00:01<Whatsisname>every package i try to install with apt-get i get the
00:01<Whatsisname>Package blah is not available, but is referred to by another package.
00:01<Whatsisname>and i'm just rocking straight lenny main
00:01<will01>dmoerner: Nothing else I can do besides reinstall?
00:02<dmoerner>will01: can you pastebin apt-cache showpkg apt
00:04<will01>That doesn't seem to work either
00:04<Whatsisname>anyone ever encountered that
00:04<Whatsisname>I can't seem to dist-upgrade either
00:05-!-Taypan [~cesar@] has joined #debian
00:05<Whatsisname>theres a million entries in apt-cache unmet though
00:05<dmoerner>Whatsisname: could you please pastebin /etc/apt/sources.list
00:06<dmoerner>will01: you need to reinstall

00:07<dmoerner>Whatsisname: you don't have any main debian mirrors in there, only the security repos
00:07<dmoerner>uncomment the lines above security, or use your favorite debian mirror
00:08<Whatsisname>i've got
00:08<Whatsisname>testing main
00:08<Whatsisname>or is that not a 'main debian mirror'
00:08<dmoerner>Whatsisname: it says "testing mai" in the pastebin you sent me, which doesn't wokr
00:08<Whatsisname>yeah i miseed the last n when I hightlited it, I updated it
00:09<dmoerner>so then aptitude update && aptitude safe-upgrade spits out an error message?
00:09<dmoerner>could you please pastebin that
00:09<Whatsisname>i used the xmission mirrors in the past until today
00:09<Whatsisname>let me give it a spin
00:10<Supaplex>I'm sure they want their mirror to stay inplace. don't make it dizzy now.
00:10<Whatsisname>it give no error, just 0 packages upgraded, 0 newly installed, 57 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
00:10<dmoerner>Whatsisname: aptitude keep-all && aptitude safe-upgrade
00:10-!-craigevil [] has joined #debian
00:11<dmoerner>thats just because you normally use apt-get i imagine. did you just forget to run update after changing mirrors?
00:11-!-seanius [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:11<Whatsisname>0 packages upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
00:11<Whatsisname>nope, i've updated like 20 times in the past half hour
00:11-!-wea0 [] has left #debian []
00:11<dmoerner>so now for example aptitude install -s tint (or any arbitrary package) spits out an error?
00:12<Whatsisname>No candidate version found for tint
00:12<dmoerner>what is the output of apt-cache policy tint
00:12<dmoerner>this is rather bizarre

00:13-!-Whatsisname [] has joined #debian
00:13<Whatsisname>meh theres only a couple people in here
00:13<Supaplex>!tell Whatsisname -about paste
00:13<dmoerner>aaaaaaaaaah that explains it
00:13<dmoerner>its got an absurd pinning value
00:13<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.
00:13<Whatsisname>how can that get fixed
00:13<Supaplex>0? pffft
00:14<dmoerner>you want it at 500 for testing, not -1
00:14<Whatsisname>lol how did it even get set
00:14<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.
00:14<dmoerner>Whatsisname: can you pastebin the full output of apt-cache policy. xmission is no longer in /etc/apt/sources.list so it shouldn't show up there--something is still wrong
00:15<Whatsisname>dmoerner, sorry, i switched it back from
00:15<Whatsisname>and updated

03:06<ebzzry>How do I upgrade my kernel, say from linux-image-2.6.24-1-amd64 to 2.6.26*-amd64?
03:07<jm_>ebzzry: the same way you install any other package
03:07<chealer>I'm thinking about setting up something like apt-cacher for a home network of max 4 PCs, where no PC can be assumed to be always online. about how much would setting this up take and would would it work well?
03:08<chealer>ebzzry: install the new kernel and reboot
03:08<craigevil>ebzzry: if its in the repo for your release apt-get upgrade should upgrade it, if not apt-get/aptitude install
03:08<chealer>ebzzry: it's not a real upgrade. it's an installation of a new package. you can always remove the old one.
03:08<ebzzry>craigevil: So "apt-get install linux-image" should do the job?
03:09<ebzzry>chealer: OK

03:15-!-simonrvn [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
03:17<chealer>jm_: hum. even if I never set up squid? and if I don't have any PC I can rely to be always online?
03:19-!-Wezz6400 [] has joined #debian
03:20<jm_>chealer: yes, it's very much straightforward - the only thing you'd want to change is max file size to cache. but how would apt-cache then help you if there is no PC that will be online?
03:21-!-ao2 [~u@2001:1418:117::1] has joined #debian
03:22-!-Bearman [] has joined #debian
03:22<chealer>jm_: I mean the PC that would cache is not always online, and I'd like the cache clients to bypass the cache if it's offline. I have no idea if squid, apt-cacher, or any apt-cacher variant deals with that satisfactorily.
03:24<chealer>or, I guess, APT itself...
03:24-!-panagos [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
03:25<jm_>chealer: yeah I think apt has to, and from what I can tell it doesn't unless you tell it to not use proxy
03:25-!-panagos [] has joined #debian

03:39<janez>I just purchased one of these laptops and I cannot get X running with the intel driver. All I get is white screens when using the intel driver.
03:40-!-Bearman [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
03:41<clint1986>which laptop?
03:41<janez>clint1986, dell studio 1535
03:41<clint1986>which version of debian?
03:41<janez>965GM chipset
03:41<janez>clint1986, lenny
03:41<janez>I also tried installing Fedora, Debian, OpenSuse and the alpha Ubuntu release (Intrepid Ibex). White screens on all of them. So I don't know
03:43<clint1986>janez: it's possible that might help
03:43<clint1986>janez: the part about being earlier than 2.1.1
03:43<clint1986>janez: is that the case?
03:43<clint1986>janez: a different laptop, but same chipset
03:44-!-snogglethorpe [] has joined #debian
03:44<chealer>clint1986: it isn't
03:44<clint1986>it can't hurt to try that

03:44<janez>clint1986, post of TallMatthew

03:46<clint1986> has that chipset listed in its supported chipsets

03:47-!-fnordus [~dnall@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
03:47<clint1986>back up your xorg.conf first
03:47<clint1986>so you can rollback if you need to
03:47<jm_>perhaps you need the latest version of intel driver
03:47-!-SuperDale [] has joined #debian
03:48<ebzzry>How do I turn off the blinking of the cursor in the console?
03:49<janez>clint1986, mmm, that doesnt work
03:49<Supaplex>ebzzry: stab it with a big knife. ;)
03:49<clint1986>you may need to grab the latest driver yourself
03:49<clint1986>like jm_ suggested
03:49<jm_>ebzzry: there's an option to turn the cursor off, and for FB one can enable blinking separately
03:49-!-meandtheshell1 [] has joined #debian
03:50<ebzzry>Supaplex: That doesn't work though. :-(
03:50<ebzzry>jm_: I tried "setterm -blink off" but it doesn't seem to work. Am I using the wrong command?
03:50<Supaplex>ebzzry: are you in an xterm or something?
03:50<jm_>ebzzry: no not blink, blink is for blink attribute IIRC
03:50<ebzzry>I'm in a tty
03:50<ebzzry>Non-X tty

03:55<ebzzry>jm_: OK. How do I do that?
03:55<jm_>ebzzry: you need FB support in kernel (or load a module)
03:56<ebzzry>Can you point to a document on how to do that?
03:56<janez_>kk, im back
03:56<janez_>clint1986, im back, im writing now from the laptop, with intel driver, but I connected a monitor to the laptop
03:56<jm_>ebzzry: let me check something first
03:56<ebzzry>jm_: OK
03:57<jm_>ebzzry: run this echo -e "\e[?3c"
03:57<jm_>change 3 to 6
03:58-!-simonrvn [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
03:58<ebzzry>Yes. And if I change it to 6, I get a full block, right?
03:58<ebzzry>Now, I want to turn that blinking off.
03:59-!-mode/#debian [+l 345] by debhelper

04:10<ebzzry>jm_: That did it. Thanks. Is there a way to make this change permanent (or semi-permanent)?
04:10<jm_>ebzzry: you'll need to stick it in .bashrc or similar
04:11<ebzzry>jm_: Ah, so that change is user-specific, not system wide?
04:11<jm_>ebzzry: even tty specific I'd say - check another tty, does it apply there too?
04:12<ebzzry>jm_: No. tty specific. I noticed that after I exit vi, the cursor goes back to the default mode.
04:12<ebzzry>jm_: Which is a blinking underscore
04:12<jm_>ebzzry: ahh some sort of reset sequence causing it I guess
04:13<ebzzry>jm_: Most likely

04:25<ebzzry>jm_: OK
04:25<jm_>ebzzry: check if FB is built-in or compiled as modules (grep FB /boot/config-$(uname -r)
04:26<ebzzry>jm_: What string should I specifically look for in the output?
04:26<jm_>ebzzry: CONFIG_FB* stuff

04:28<jm_>ebzzry: yeah lots of options/modules, check if it says =m or =y for most of them
04:28<jm_>and in particular just CONFIG_FB

04:52<jm_>ebzzry: grep for VESA in config file
04:53<Katt>I'm having a keymap-problem. None of the norwegian keys on my keyboard works unless I log in to gnome, but not in terminals. I did dpkg-reconfigure console-data and chose a norwegian keyboard from the list, but it did not seem to fix it. Any suggestions?
04:53<ebzzry>jm_: I have these:
04:54<ebzzry># CONFIG_FB_UVESA is not set
04:54<jm_>ebzzry: ahh so it's built in, so you can use that
04:54-!-themill [] has joined #debian
04:54<ebzzry>Even if it has the line "# CONFIG_FB_UVESA is not set" ?
04:55<jm_>Katt: did you try manually loading appropriate file with loadkeys?
04:55<jm_>ebzzry: that's for uvesa, but you have vesa vga support (this is older)
04:55<ebzzry>jm_: Which is better?
04:55<ebzzry>jm_: Which is better?
04:56<ebzzry>Sorry for the double message.
04:56<Katt>jm_: Yup, same result.
04:56<jm_>ebzzry: well it's irrelevant since your kernel supports only one, and better is debatable - just use vga=0x3YZ and you'll get FB
04:57<ebzzry>jm_: Can you say that again please? How again can I do that?
04:57-!-Bearman [] has joined #debian
04:57<ebzzry>jm_: What commands shall be typed?
04:57<jm_>Katt: and dumpkeys shows it loaded?

04:58-!-freealan [] has joined #debian
04:58<ebzzry>jm_: Edit the boot loader config file and specify it?
04:58<jm_>ebzzry: yeah, vga=foo entry
04:58<jm_>Katt: perhaps it is there but you're using it incorrectly, i.e. it's setup for compose key?
04:59<ebzzry>jm_: Where is the boot loader config file?
04:59<Katt>jm_: Strange, I tried to load it again, and now it worked
04:59<jm_>ebzzry: that would depend on which one you are using
04:59<Katt>I thought I had set it up as default
04:59<Katt>So I just did loadkey -d
04:59<ebzzry>Is it at /boot/config-`uname -r`?
04:59<Katt>What could have overwritten it?

09:24<kudecnik>ok - where i must go ?

09:27<kudecnik>im on debian
09:27<weasel>sure you are.
09:27<weasel>then go to the official site where you downloaded your trial thing
09:27<weasel>*they* will tell you
09:27<weasel>debian doesn't require any serial numbers
09:27<kudecnik>it is imindmap

09:28<ebzzry>themill: btw, "apt-cache search java-virtual-machine" yields at least 5 packages. These are gij, jamvm, java-gcj-compat, kaffe-jthreads, opejdk, and sablevm. Which should I use?

09:42<ebzzry>Yes. I want pinning and I'm reading about them now.
09:42<enouf>ebzzry: do not mix etch with lenny, nor sid - there are side cases where a backport could work - but see if using etch
09:42-!-tinho [~tinho@] has left #debian []
09:42<ebzzry>enouf: OK. I'm using Lenny.
09:42<themill>ebzzry: if you're running stable, you don't want pinning (as a general rule)
09:43<enouf>ebzzry: then /msg dpkg ssb
09:43<ebzzry>themill: OK.
09:43<ebzzry>Are security updates applicable only for stable?
09:44<themill>ebzzry: I thought you said you were running etch earlier... if you're running lenny then you get your java plugin from icedtea-gcjwebplugin
09:44<enouf>ebzzry: the key is to only have a 'deb-src ..' entry for sid/unstable
09:44<ebzzry>Ah. Oops. Wrong question I think.
09:44<avtobiff>ebzzry, no. there is testing security updates as well.
09:44<themill>dpkg: tell tell about ebzzry testing security
09:44<ebzzry>themill: No. I'm running Lenny. I didn't say I'm running Etch. (I just checked the logs)

09:45<themill>/msg the bot yourself.... *sulks*
09:45<ebzzry>A document somethere on said that netselect-apt can be useful. I used it. Is it good?
09:46<enouf>i think there's a newer tool for that? hrm...
09:46<enouf>be sure to read the READMEs
09:46<ebzzry>enouf: What specific README(s) would you suggest?
09:46<enouf>!apt spy
09:47<dpkg>[apt-spy] a secret! Shh! 'Mirror, mirror, on the wall... who is the fastest of them all?' Note that it will overwrite your sources.list when finished, so (1) cp /etc/apt/sources.list /etc/apt/sources.list.mybak (2) apt-get install apt-spy (3) apt-spy update; apt-spy -d [stable,testing,unstable] -a [Africa,Asia,Europe,North-America,Oceania,South-America] (4) fix your sources.list by adding back in any other mirrors you had been using.
09:47<enouf>ebzzry: the ones for the pkgs you install
09:47<ebzzry>Ah, another thing before I forget to ask. When I installed Lenny earlier, I got gdm on startup. How do I specify what window manager to load?
09:47<enouf>ebzzry: each pkg comes with some sort of documentation, many have much, some, just a few
09:47<ebzzry>enouf: Thanks
09:48<enouf>ebzzry: update-alternatives --config x-session-manager ... or maybe it's a gdm config thing you want
09:48<ebzzry>enouf: What does that command do?
09:48<upsilon>ebzzry: isn't there a "session" menu in gdm?
09:48<enouf>see the man pages ;-)
09:49<ebzzry>upsilon: There's a session menu.
09:49<ebzzry>Oh boy. Migrating configs isn't easy after all. *sigh*
09:49<upsilon>choose it from there?
09:49<ebzzry>upsilon: OK.
09:49<enouf>ebzzry: x-cursor-theme x-session-manager x-terminal-emulator x-window-manager x-www-browser
09:49<ebzzry>enouf: What are those?

09:54<enouf>i mean, standard http connections will use more than one connection .. hrm .. well wget is the main one
09:55<ebzzry>enouf: Huh? I thought wget uses one direct connection only?

09:58<ebzzry>I'll check later if wget really opens multiple connections and aggregates them.
09:58<ebzzry>enouf: Which is your strong suit? ;-)
09:58<themill>enouf: only for downloading multiple files, not for multiple downloads on the one file
09:58<enouf>ebzzry: PDF readers O_o
09:58<ebzzry>enouf: Hehe :-D
09:58<enouf>themill: righto - i guess that's why he mentioned multi*threaded*
09:59<ebzzry>axel2 seems to do the job (I just miss the mget feel. Maybe there's a .deb package somewhere hmm)
09:59<ebzzry>Yup. Multi-threaded.
09:59<themill>enouf: true. Multi-threading is pretty irrelevant for a cli app though
09:59<ebzzry>Multiple connections for one file. Something that these popular GUI download managers do.
09:59<enouf>ebzzry: but does actually affect/shorten the total d/l time?

10:00<enouf>ok well - i'm on 2MB/sec cable ;-)
10:00<themill>ebzzry: It's an http thing not tcp/ip. not all http servers support it. it plays havoc with dynamically generated (or presented) content can suck more than your share of resources from everyone along the way. It's not polite.
10:00<ebzzry>themill: Yup.
10:00<ebzzry>themill: I understand that it's not polite because I'm a sysadmin too.

10:27<dooglus>trying to umount my memory card from the command line, I type "umount /media/Mem" and hit tab. it completes to "umount /media/Memory " the first time I hit TAB, then to "umount /media/Memory /".

19:18<themill>kdas: what are wanting *might* be beyond what sort(1) can do. Perl might be easier.
19:18<oipunx>any idea?

19:20<themill>kdas: what? You didn't say there were numbers and letters that you wanted compared.
19:21-!-panagos [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
19:21<kdas>themill, i don't, i want that the ips should be grouped together and then the highest number for the first field should be sorted
19:21<themill>sort also only works per-line and you've got some sort of heirarchical structure there. Use perl.

19:24<kdas>what i am trying to do is this basicaly.. sort the ips which sort does no problem with sort -n -k2,2
19:24<kdas>but then i want that it should sort the first field but without screwing up the placement of the ips
19:25<themill>kdas: you're only telling us half the story here. First it was just sort numeric, then sort literal and numeric, then awk processing. We've got so little chance of helping you here...
19:26<kdas>themill, well i just explained what i need help with 3 different ways
19:26<kdas>themill, i even gave you a paste of what i would like
19:26<themill>kdas: but we don't know what is actually being given to sort. What does the raw data look like? It's a bit hard to sort data when you don't know what it looks like
19:27-!-daemon [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
19:27<kdas>themill, it looks like what i showed you first "4 192.168.1.x"
19:28<themill>kdas: reread your first line... sort -n -r was the correct answer to that. But that wasn't really your question...
19:28<kdas>'4' is the first field which i want sorted but i don't want sorted ips to be messed with it should sort only to each group
19:28<gef>kdas, seems like you want to sort the fields in reverse order... awk '{print $2 $1 $...etc}' | sort -blah | awk '{print $2 $1 $...etc }'
19:30<themill>kdas: sort on its own can't sort on multiple keys.

19:31<abrotman>and you didn't respond
19:31<kdas>here is how the data looks:
19:32<themill>kdas: I'd do it in perl. You could probably do it in awk too.
19:32<abrotman>and he'll just ignore me here too .. great plan

22:07<XY>ranix: you always have intresting answers, what is your defination of a stock install?
22:08<XY>from which cd, etc???
22:08<ranix>XY: single install cd, no packages installed. Or, a barebones debootstrapped system
22:09<ranix>XY: gives you a basically functional system with apt, a text editor, and basic man pages
22:09<ranix>XY: then you install what you need from there
22:09<XY>ranix:which install cd???
22:09<ranix>XY: the only install CD. CD1
22:09<ranix>XY: or, the netinst cd
22:10<XY>ranix: i know of a gnome and a xcfe-based one and the netinst cd

22:11<XY>ranix: i can see your logic, but the xcfe cd was provided as a way of doing it right, though i see the advantage of starting with the netinst cd .
22:11<ranix>XY: if you are worried about nonessential things being on your system, such as an MTA, the correct course of action is to install the barebones system with CD1, a netinst CD, or a debootstrap
22:11<ranix>XY: then you add what you want

22:11<ranix>XY: The wrong way is to get a 'feature desktop' system with random-ass programs and then UN-INSTALL everything
22:12<ranix>XY: how does that even make sense
22:13<XY>ranix: depends on your expections i guess and also everything is a exxageration. ]
22:13<XY>ranix: providing install xcfe goes smoothly starting first with the netinst cd, that is possibly the better way but only if that condition is true
22:14<XY>ranix: it is something i will consider trying, but i do not fancy another 3 hour install, i wish my decent laptop (dude i got a dell) never died.
22:14<XY>oh well,
22:15<XY>ranix: so does X usually communicate with ssh?
22:15<XY>ranix: sorry i mean via
22:16<craigevil>wtf would x have to do with ssh?
22:17<XY>craigevil: well, i know x communicates via a the tcp/ip stack? , maybe someone who put together the ssh package thought it would be a good idea to encrypt all communications involving X11

22:17<crweb>XY: remote x can tcp/ip, local running x is not tcp/ip
22:18<XY>craigevil : by the package, i actually meant the xcfe debian cd
22:18<crweb>XY: that would be way to slow
22:18<crweb>XY: and you can do x forwarding over ssh
22:18<XY>crweb: arrrgh, i have been misinformed ... is that true without the dri module???
22:19<crweb>dri is direct render interface. It communicates directly with the video card device
22:19<crweb>its for hardware accellerated graphics
22:20<XY>crweb: yeah, i have had issues since x decided my crappy neomagic video card somehow wanted to work with dri, but according to my :0.log file that was a issue, funny thing was i dont remeber it being a issue before

22:20<crweb>did you set some setting that uses opengl?
22:20-!-allisterb [] has joined #debian
22:20<XY>its as if i updated my system, removed some things and the entire gui part of the install (as least not as root) went to hell
22:21<crweb>or change the Driver " " entry in the xorg.conf ?
22:21<XY>crweb: not to my knowledge, my chipset is not very advanced by todays standard (2.5 megs ram)
22:21-!-Bearman [] has joined #debian
22:22<XY>crweb : no, the only thing i blank out is x is the 24-bit graphics section(slow as snails) and the part where it keeps insisting i have a synaptics touchpad when i dont
22:22<crweb>you probably uninstalled something you need
22:23<crweb>by uninstalling something that what you needed depended on
22:23<oipunx>what's the equation to figure out DisplaySize?
22:23<XY>well i uninstall exim4-light-daemon, and at, i think thats it ...
22:23<oipunx>so that i can reduce the dpi
22:23<crweb>XY: but what did that mark for uninstall?
22:23<ranix>probably whole assloads of things
22:23<ranix>let me test
22:24<XY>i also always have to dpkg-reconfigure so it understands that the ghetto screen can do 1024x768, the auto detect fails miserbly
22:24<crweb>so its not saving your configuration?
22:24<XY>ranix: warning, i did that on my install (not netinst)
22:24<XY>crweb: for some reason, the stock install is detecting it wrong
22:25<crweb>oh, it happens
22:25<ranix>I don't have exim
22:25<ranix>I forgot about that
22:25<XY>if i am not making sense, its because i have been at this for hours . looking around, and stuff
22:25<crweb>XY: new hardware is completely autodetected, but old hardware lacks a lot of those features
22:28<XY>ranix: do you have a mail client at all on your system? , i find it rather intresting if your don't! , it would mean that the xcfe install disk sux. (unless xcfe4 uses it for some strange reason)
22:28<ranix>XY: I have removed it because this machine's root filesystem is on disk-on-flash

22:29<XY>speaking of being at this a long time, i have to go
22:29<XY>ranix: intresting way of doing things ranix: slc based flash or mlc???
22:29<ranix>I have no idea what that stands for
22:29<XY>ranix: if its slc based i hope you dont write to it too much...
22:30<ranix>it's NAND
22:30<ranix>and no, I do not write to it
22:30<XY>ranix: google it !

23:20<oipunx>input and xorg config
23:20<oipunx>touchpad and trackpoint doesnt work, only the usb mouse work
23:23<kop>oipunx : I'll take a look, but I generally poke mine with a stick until they work. Actually of late everything has just worked.
23:23<oipunx>uncommenting the synaptics touchpad doesnt work either
23:23<oipunx>thx kop
23:24<kop>oipunx : How about posting the X log in /var/log/.
23:24-!-Bearman [] has joined #debian
23:25<oipunx>tthe whole thing?
23:25<kop>oipunx : "dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg" didn't ask any relevant questions?
23:26<kop>oipunx : Better more than less. There's some paste sites that let you upload a file. I forget...
23:26<MotoHoss>ranix: thanks the isp for those accounts is the problem. their DNS MX records are incorrect. trouble ticket entered.
23:26<kop>!tell oipunx -about paste

23:30<pgpkeys>Pre udev a tmpfs was loaded and mounted on /dev/shm via a tmpfs line in /etc/fstab making it simplistic to remove. It no longer loads that way. I see where it's created and loaded in the /etc/init.d/ which stocks udev.
23:30<pgpkeys>is there a variable in the environment I set to stop domount tmpfs shmfs /dev/shm tmpfs -onosuid,nodev$SHM_OPT from running _other_ than simply #'ing it out

23:32<oipunx>it only configs keyboard
23:33<kop>oipunx : You could also check dmesg for what it says about your other pointing devices. (There might possibly be something in lspci too, possibly.)
23:33<oipunx>well the touchpad and trackpoint are a part of the keyboard
23:34<kop>oipunx : It should ask about what kind of mouse to autodetect, ps2 etc.

23:35<oipunx>if u look at the first paste, they all shows up correctly
23:35<oipunx>i just dont know what to put for the Option "Device"
23:36<kop>oipunx : I once had a trackpoint in an ibm keyboard and it worked. I don't recall what I told it about the mouse protocol. You may need to know more about the hardware. Then either google or read the xorg.conf man page.
23:36<kop>oipunx : Does not your paste say the Synaptic is mouse3, but you've listed it in xorg.conf as psaux?
23:37<oipunx>yeah i treid mouse3 before and that didnt work either
23:38<oipunx>also tried mouse2
23:38-!-fons [] has joined #debian
23:38<fons>hello room
23:38<oipunx>the plain/original config has it as "Device" "/dev/psaux"
23:38<oipunx>and it worked
23:39<kop>oipunx : I'd say it's mouse3. But maybe the protocol can't be auto-detected and you need to specify it manually?
23:39<fons>I forgot an essential command to mount ntfs-partitions
23:40<enouf>oipunx: and kop if that's lenny, drxx no longer does anything ;-)
23:40<dpkg>it has been said that ntfs-3g is a user-space NTFS driver with write support and good performance. It is available in Lenny, or through for Etch (ask me about <> for instructions and see Usage examples:
23:41<kop>oipunx : If you had a working config, compare the InputDevice sections. If they're the same then maybe you're just not configured to use that input device. You've about exhausted all I know.
23:42<fons>thx dpkg, I will check into that now. I installed FUSE but the HOWTO doesn't help. the ntfs-3g is the one I need
