00:01<Ouroboros>hm, both linux-image-2.6.18-6-686 and linux-source-2.6.18 seems to be version 2.6.18.dfsg.1-23, not sure what gives
00:03-!-NCommander [] has joined #debian
00:03<Ouroboros>in any case, in order to produce a correct ./include directory from either of these, i would need to copy /boot/config-... in there and do somehting like 'make menuconfig'?
00:03<Ouroboros>seems like kinda a pain to do this everytime the kernel is updated
00:04<dmoerner>Ouroboros, apt-get source will include the debian directory with patchsets, linux-source seems to have the patches already applied
00:05<Ouroboros>ah, that makes sense

00:08<istoc>Hello, I'm trying to move a physical volume with pvmove. I have a lot more space in the volume group than the FS. Should I reduce the FS to as small as possible or increase it to fill the VG?

02:24<avtobiff>i have a lacie external usb disk and it is recognized by the kernel, but no device file is created. how do i solve that?
02:24-!-arya [~ignu@] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
02:24-!-arya [~ignu@] has joined #debian
02:24<jm_>perhaps you're missing appropriate kernel module
02:24<avtobiff>i have loaded usb_storage
02:24<avtobiff>is there anything else i should load?
02:25<jm_>appart from core USB drivers, no
02:25<jm_>ehci and uhci/ohci
02:25<jm_>ohh of course, scsi disk support
02:25<avtobiff>i have. usbcore, uhci_hcd and usb_storage
02:25<avtobiff>and scsi_mod
02:26<avtobiff>would that suffice?
02:26<tcsetattr>sd_mod is important too
02:26<jm_>no, you need sd)mod too
02:26<jm_>sd_mod even
02:26<avtobiff>yes, that is in also
02:27<jm_>that one is almost always loaded with modern kernels anyway
02:27-!-overflow [~overflow@] has quit [Quit: Lost terminal]
02:27<avtobiff>but it still doesn't work. i should just get a device file created by udev right?
02:27<jm_>are you using debian kernel? udev up and running?
02:27<jm_>also check /proc/partitions - is it listed there?
02:27<avtobiff>debian kernel, udevd --daemon
02:28<tcsetattr>yay, another udev screwup. was MAKEDEV really that hard to use, people?
02:28<avtobiff>should i use ohci instead of uhci maybe?
02:28<jm_>no, uhci is apparently fine because otherwise it shouldn't load
02:28<avtobiff>ah, ok
02:29-!-ebzzry [~rmm@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
02:29<jm_>uhci is for intel chipsets, ohci is for say nvidia
02:29<avtobiff>ok, so what should i do now...
02:29<jm_>like I said, check /proc/partitions
02:29<avtobiff>jm_, sorry, i missed that
02:30<avtobiff>jm_, no, not listed. only my host-disk
02:30<avtobiff>jm_, internal disk that is.
02:30<jm_>avtobiff: then kernel did not recognize it it seems
02:30-!-Bearman [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
02:30-!-simonrvn [] has joined #debian
02:30<avtobiff>how do i solve that?
02:31<jm_>first check what kernels says when you plug it in

02:32<avtobiff>do you want a proper pastebin? :)
02:33<jm_>but no scsi/sd messages?
02:33<avtobiff>jm_, exactly
02:33<avtobiff>that is missing
02:33<avtobiff>wait what
02:33<avtobiff>now i got one

02:35-!-arya [~ignu@] has joined #debian
02:36<jm_>don't you love USB?
02:36<avtobiff>btw, is there anything special with partitioning an usb-drive? or could i go with the intended one big partition?
02:36<avtobiff>jm_, i really do :)
02:36<avtobiff>plug n' pray
02:36<jm_>naah, you can do it the way you want
02:38<avtobiff>so, this was some time ago, would i like a primary or an extended partition?
02:38-!-arya [~ignu@] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
02:38-!-arya [~ignu@] has joined #debian
02:38<avtobiff>nm, i'll jfgi ;)
02:39<jm_>primary is probably good enough

02:41<blarson>Use primary if you'll never have more than 4 partitions on a drive. Extended is just an ugly hack on a poorly designed system.

02:43<avtobiff>i'll just go with primary and one big partition now. have to backup my non-working workstation before attempt to fix it.
02:43<avtobiff>then i'll go with some lvm+luks setup of the external drive.

04:48<[gloom]>Is there a tool like Kig, but with 3d options? I want to make some 3d geometrical drawings (sphere, radius, a cube...) to explain something, but kig is only gor 2d geometry. And I don't want a real 3D modeling tool, cause they are far powerful and complicated for what i need...

05:19<Yan^>Hello people, I am trying to connect my debian etch machine to WEB through wifi. I installed the firmware (ipw2200), and I understand that I must now install drivers. My problem is that apparently there are only drivers for 2.6.18-6-686 while my version is 2.6.18-4-686. Will these newer drivers work at all with my version?

06:07<jm_>right - that's why it's saying obsolete now

06:07<wfer1>But what do I do with it?

06:10<wfer1>how do I refresh that?

06:11<jm_>probably by purging and reinstalling it
06:11<jm_>or maybe it will notice it on upgrade
06:11<wfer1>And restoring the config, yes.
06:11<wfer1>probably. Or vim dpkg.status. Anyway, that doesn't hurt, the file is gone.

08:10<prower>hello :> i'm using debian lenny, it's working out great so far...i've noticed that something has changed though. my motherboard supports altering the speed of the cpu fan based on the cpu's temperature, it should be able to go up as high as 3000rpm...but in lenny (as opposed to etch) the fan always hovers at around 1600. can it be adjusted somewhere?
08:11<jm_>lkh: is lp coming from cupsys-client?
08:11<Bushmills>prower: there is fancontrol, with lmsensors, which can adjust fan speed according cpu temperature
08:12<prower>Bushmills: Ah, this is probably what I need, i'm using lmsensors to get the info of course :> thanks, i will read the man page
08:12<lkh>Bushmills, I have cups and cups-bsd installed. Sorry I don't use cupsys but cups 1.3.8-1lenny2

08:34<petemc>your apt sources are http?

08:35<kooll>hmm. that was for Norgur

08:35<kooll>the driver wouldn't even know it's http or some other kind of tcp connection from apt

09:21-!-tatotat [~tato@] has joined #debian
09:22<cesurasean>2.6.26 seems to have problems
09:22<stew>cesurasean: the problem is with the initrd / initrd creator. rebuilding the initrd would probably fix your problem. installing / reinstalling a kernel would cause a new initrd to be created
09:22<stew>cesurasean: what problems does 2.6.26 seem to have?
09:22<cesurasean>the init problem is the only thing I can find
09:22<cesurasean>now my machine won't boot from the etchnhalf cd
09:23<cesurasean>I mean, it won't start the raid devices

09:23<stew>cesurasean: if it doesn't start the raid devices, then how did it install onto them?

09:23-!-mailq [] has joined #debian
09:23<cesurasean>the installer works fine
09:24<stew>cesurasean: then it must have started the raid devices
09:24<cesurasean>booting into the kernel is the issue, the kernel panics something about init not being able to mount the md0
09:24<cesurasean>yes, it started them during the installer. that is correct.
09:24<cesurasean>the issue is the kernel panic once the software has been installed.

09:30<stew>cesurasean: the 486 can't handle more than 1g, and doesn't support multiple CPUs / multiple cores. the 686 supports up to 4g, supports multiple cpus/cores but doesn't support 486 or pentium
09:31-!-aura [] has joined #debian

09:36<cesurasean>#1 it's installing a 486 kernel, #2 during boot, the kernel panics because it can't find the RAID
09:36<petern>is your raid1 done with md or a controller card?
09:36<petern>does it find the disks?

09:44<cesurasean>why is the kernel having a panic then?
09:44<cesurasean>the bios finds the IDE devices, but the kernel does not
09:44<stew>cesurasean: becuase the initrd doesn't know how to start your raid

10:44<stew>he should be able to get it running with a lenny kernel or an etchnhalf kernel, since those kernels work from the installer

10:45<Bushmills>stew: yes. eventually. no pressure, if the system is usable.
10:46<Bushmills>kernel panic != user panic

11:25<elrebrin>erikg: It should work if you're using "linux32" as your chroot personality. Does on my amd64 system anyway.
11:26<elrebrin>erikg: Failing that, doesn't make-kpkg have a switch to specify target architecture? --target or --architecture or something similar. I'm sure I've seen it somewhere.

11:29<elrebrin>erikg: Depends on your chroot command. If you're just using "chroot", use "linux32 chroot /path/to/chroot/". If you're using schroot, there is an option in /etc/schroot.conf for setting it (its explained in the manpage).

11:30<elrebrin>erikg: The way to check if that is the problem or not is by running "uname -m" in the chroot. If it comes up as "amd64", you need to use linux32. If it comes up as "i686", its all groovy :)
11:30<Norgur>for amd64 it will say x86_64

11:58<elrebrin>jkf_tmp: The whole point of apt-get (and its similars) is to calculate and resolve dependencies. If you don't want to install the dependencies, then there is no point using them, and you may as well use dpkg.
11:58<hannes--->jkf_tmp, but a dependency means the program to install needs it

14:50<kop>Panterh3art : Memtest86+ runs without an OS, so requires a reboot. You can do it removely if you have a serial console setup or an ethernet kvm, etc.
14:50<Bushmills>Halitech: the folder contains files
14:51<Bushmills>the directory
14:51<Panterh3art>i have a kvm switch behind my server and game pc
14:51<Halitech>Bushmills, well one would assume you are correct but there are no files (visible at least) to root or my normal user even with hitting CTRL-h
14:52<kop>Panterh3art : The kvn would have to kvm over the network.
14:52<Panterh3art>then no
14:52<Bushmills>Halitech: do ls -la /path/to/directory
14:52<Panterh3art>sorry my english is kinda bad

15:11<Panterh3art>mate after the segfault i did apt-get upgrade
15:11<nycz>kop: i just did, about 30 lines above
15:11<stew>Panterh3art: becuase stable's apt-get shouldn't segfault under normal circumstances

15:12<Halitech>kop it might be my friend but its talking a different language then me :(
15:13<Panterh3art>but that file was corupted cuz of mysql
15:13<hjb>kingsley or, if you only want to read, view which is read-only vim ;)
15:13<stew>Panterh3art: then yes, it likely has some kind of hardware errors, and I suspect bad memory first

15:13<stew>Panterh3art: how would mysql have corrupted /var/lib/dpkg/status?
15:13<Panterh3art>cuz i did something wrong

15:36<jt_>what's wrong with reiserfs? I've been using it for a while and it's great

19:38<chealer>enouf: no... :?
19:38<enouf>chealer: i wanted it altered because anyone whom searches either the wiki or even google will surely be using 'xrandr' as a search term .. that's all ...
19:39<themill>chealer: :)

19:41<chealer>enouf: the page contents contain "xrandr". if the wiki search doesn't find it, that's an issue with moin. I disagree with renaming the page as a workaround. if people know RandR as xrandr, renaming the page will worsen the problem. even Wikipedia used to have it wrong.
19:43<chealer>enouf: of course, creating a XRandR dummy page redirecting to the current page could be a workaround

21:02<lukehasnoname_>anyway abrotman, where would I ask Debian about the Eclipse packaging?
21:02<abrotman>[gloom]: because ubuntu has different packagers
21:02<abrotman>lukehasnoname_: you're using Ubuntu .. you would ask them

21:05<dpkg>The short version: aptitude install module-assistant nvidia-kernel-common nvidia-kernel-source && m-a prepare && m-a a-i nvidia && apt-get install nvidia-glx && dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg. For the long version, see
21:05<[gloom]>abrotman: well, if you think so... I had the same problem a month ago. I ended up uninstalling the repo version, and installing the standalone version from the eclipse website. First I checked every source I had to see the reason why is was not in the repos yet... and I had found nothing about it...
21:05<themill>chealer: claims it doesn't work. Don't know whether to believe him and don't have the energy to pursue it at 2am.
21:05<abrotman>[gloom]: and did you ask the package maintainer?
21:05<[gloom]>abrotman: so seems natural to me to ask here the reason
21:05<enouf>themill: i think that factoid is ok, however it may need to have some caveats mentioned
21:06<themill>enouf: you know how to add them :P
21:06<[gloom]>abrotman: nope. Before bothering any package maintainer, i ask on the irc to see if I was dreaming when "something" happened, and everybody knows the answer to my questio... And if noone answers, the I ask the apckage maintainer
21:07<enouf>heh - i would, however i don't know enough about all the various driver versions (namely the non-legacy vs legacy) to do so correctly

21:07<willly>gloom: Essentially, yes, that's accurate. I appear to have moved my menu entries instead of copying them -- and of course whatever the system needs to boot the initial console still needs to be copied.

22:21<meoblast001>how many gigs is that

22:22<abrotman>meoblast001: use http sources
22:22<meoblast001>http sources?
22:22<meoblast001>the gears arent clicking
