00:03<jello>Delta_x: is eth0 mentioned at all?
00:04<Delta_x>yes, I added it.

00:06<Delta_x>? resolv.conf doesn't exist...
00:07<Delta_x>Anyway. It went down now I'm bringing it up and it does DHCPDISCOVER for a while then fails.

00:07<jello>Delta_x: do you have a DHCP server on that network?
00:07<Delta_x>My router
00:07<amphi>Delta_x: the link encap you pasted was not reassuring
00:08<jello>Delta_x: do you have the resolvconf package installed?
00:08<Delta_x>I don't know.
00:08<jello>Delta_x: dpkg -l resolvconf
00:09-!-mode/#debian [+l 344] by debhelper
00:09<Delta_x>Got some output, version none though.
00:09<jello>okay, so you should install it at some point
00:10<jello>are you able to do that now (via cd)?
00:10<diogo>how to install dhcp server?
00:10<jello>otherwise we'll do it after you get the network up
00:10<Delta_x>I remember I had linux working on this before. I think it was Ubuntu, but it's debian based. I don't know why this doesn't work.

00:13<diogo>how to install dhcp server on lenny
00:13<jello>is it configured for static IPs?
00:14<Delta_x>Weird. All my debian servers get DHCP.

01:26<ooddtod>hey guys I'm trying to install tftpd. I ensured tftpd was present but when i attempt to connect to the ftp it rejects me
01:28-!-tyler [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
01:29<jm_>check /usr/share/doc/tftpd/README
01:29<jm_>reading its man pages might also help - and also check logs

01:29<dr|z3d>ooddtod: Firewall blocking the designated port?
01:30<dr|z3d>ooddtod: Or let's put it another way. Have you opened the designated port on your firewall?

01:36<ooddtod>its inside my network do i need to open it up on the machine's firewall?
01:37<ooddtod>the readme offered little to no information about the configuration of TFTPD
01:38-!-alephnull [~alok@] has joined #debian
01:39<dr|z3d>ooddtod: You probably would, unless you have a permissive ruleset already defined for your lan. Do you?
01:40<ooddtod>i've never really had to setup the firewall on my home servers
01:41<ooddtod>i've used shorewall in the past but thats been a while
01:41<dr|z3d>Open up the ftp port on your firewall and see what happens.
01:42<jm_>tftpd has got nothing to do with ftp port(s)
01:42<dr|z3d>By default your firewall is set to block all incoming connections, regardless of source ip.
01:42<dr|z3d>tftp port, sorry.
01:43<ooddtod>jm_ elaborate please. I don't have to open a port for connections to tftpd?
01:43-!-nerd [~nerd@] has joined #debian
01:43<dr|z3d>He was correcting me.
01:43<jm_>ooddtod: no, of course it needs to be open - it's started from inetd usually, port 69 (UDP)
01:44<jm_>ooddtod: how are you testing it?
01:45-!-Bearman [] has joined #debian
01:47-!-jmux [] has joined #debian
01:49<ooddtod>windows machine
01:49<ooddtod>just trying to connect to it on 69
01:49<jm_>try it locally from linux first
01:49<jm_>where did you find tftp client for windows anyway?
01:50-!-cahoot [~radix@] has quit [Quit: cahoot]
01:50-!-sangi [~sangi@] has joined #debian
01:50<ooddtod>oh i didn't i'm running it on linux
01:51<ooddtod>i'm testing it with my windows machine
01:51<jm_>yes, but you need tftp client on windows obviously
01:51<jm_>(to do that)
01:52<ooddtod>oh tftp won't work with other clients?
01:53<jm_>no, you need ftp server for that, not tftp
01:53<jm_>tftp is primarily used for booting machines ove rnetwork
01:54<ooddtod>oh i'm sorry to waste your time. I just want a simple ftp server that would allow me to have files dumped into a machine
01:55<ooddtod>thank you for your help i'll read up on a real ftp server thank you
01:55<jm_>ftpd is simple, or vsftpd
01:55<ooddtod>which would you suggest?
01:55-!-nerd [~nerd@] has quit [Quit: Saliendo]
01:55<jm_>doesn't really matter, vsftpd gives you more options, but if it's for LAN only then ftpd will do just fine
01:57-!-Bearman [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
01:58<ooddtod>thanks jm_ i really appreciate all your help you help me like 90% of the time i'm in here
02:00<binarymutant>anyone know a good pdf reader with minimal dependencies but still feature rich? I'm looking to replace xpdf
02:00<dr|z3d>ooddtod: You might find proftpd useful also, there are front ends to it that make configuration easy.

02:02-!-tmg1|emacs [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
02:03<jm_>binarymutant: I doubt you'll find anything with less dependencies than xpdf
02:03<ooddtod>dr|z3d thanks i'm really trying to get more comfortable with working inside of the CLI, its been a tough time getting used to looking through it on a constant basis GUI's will only make it harder for me to force my self to use cli
02:03<binarymutant>jm_: well I mean, no gtk or qt depends, a little is okay
02:04<jm_>binarymutant: xpdf doesn't depend on GTK
02:04<dr|z3d>ooddtod: Fair enough. I suppose you wouldn't be interested in a central web-based gui for management, then? Namely webmin.
02:04<binarymutant>lols, I'm looking to replace xpdf
02:06<binarymutant>or is there a patch to xpdf that will save/restart where I left off? like in evince

02:30-!-franklin [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
02:30<Nemoder>it's expected to release when it's ready
02:31<rgr>Nemoder : its always really cool to say that. But its not ridiculous for people to have some idea when the maintainers think it might be ready since some people/coporations will not move over until the release is done. and they need to plan for it.
02:32<Nemoder>etch will continue to be supported for awhile after release

02:33<dmb>yes, i understand that, just planning to deploy itt, would be kind of a waste if i were to deploy it on thursday and have lenny released on friday :P
02:33<dmb>could just upgrade, but still
02:34-!-tjol_ [] has joined #debian
02:34<jm_>it's unlikely there would be any changes if you installed it on thursday and it would release on friday
02:34<Nemoder>lenny is frozen, unlikely to change too much before release, no reason you can't test it now
02:35-!-egns [] has left #debian [Going!]
02:35<blarson>Unless of course you are parinoid about security, because lenny doesn't have full security support.
02:36<dmb>i'd probably put stable on it, for that reason
02:36<dmb>but whatever
02:36<dmb>its all good
02:38<Nemoder>you can always stare at the pretty graphs while you wait or maybe help fix some bugs :P

04:20<jazzka>Hi! I'm isntalling Tomcat web server but having problems with java installation, what is the easiest way to get java working on debian?
04:21-!-gizmo [~tom@] has joined #debian
04:21<dr|z3d>The _easiest_ way to install java is to use your favorite tool and install it.
04:21<ccm>dr|z3d: Thanks. Okay done that, and my and foo.cgi are in /usr/lib/cgi-bin. I get a 404 for http://localhost/cgi-bin/foo.cgi though.
04:21<dr|z3d>ccm: Is your apache conf pointing to the right place?
04:22<LL00>does you guy use acl for your debian system ?
04:24<jazzka>ok, i'm using apt-get, so what the name of the java package/where I can fing some listing about java versions(something like apt-get install java???)
04:24-!-sanja [~sanja91@] has joined #debian
04:25<dr|z3d>jazzka: You can also use "apt-cache search java" to search for hints, for example. For future reference.
04:26<ccm>dr|z3d: It was a tunneling error (accessed local web server instead of remote one). Now opening the URL in links right on the server. Here I get a 500 with "no explanation".
04:26<dr|z3d>ccm: Try another script, perhaps?
04:27<jazzka>dr|z3ed: thanks a lot, exactly what i needed
04:28<dr|z3d>You're welcome, jazzka

05:16<[gloom]>avtobiff: Neither in etch nor in sid

05:17<Nemoder>none for 64bit
05:17<Nemoder>but icedtea uses much code from sun's GPL release
05:18<[gloom]>so, i can't make the iceweasel 64 bits to run with the sun java vm 32 bits, isn't it?
05:18<Nemoder>no way to do that no

07:50<peej>padski, anyway, I'm trying to get to grips with how the levels (pv, vg, lvm) relate to each other when you do the scan commands (pvscan, vgscan, lvmdiskscan) and lvmdiskscan output shows: "/dev/dm-0 [ 37.02 GB] LVM physical volume" (an encrypted partition) and "/dev/hda2 [ 37.02 GB]" (no mention of LVM etc). pvscan shows: "PV /dev/dm-0 VG fatboy lvm2 [37.02 GB / 0 free]", and vgscan shows: "Found volume group "fatboy" using metadat
07:50<peej>a type lvm2" my understanding is that dev hda2 being a device should be the physical volume, but instead we have dm-0 doing that. Most confusing.
07:51<peej>any wise observations?

08:02<peej>stevem_, what do you mean by peering?
08:02<stevem_>I can't believe we are still doing "what do you mean"
08:03<stevem_>I have eth0 and eth1... I want it to try eth0 first, then eth1
08:03<stevem_>At the moment it keeps trying eth1 first when what I want is on eth0... then gets no where
08:04<peej>stevem_, you need to define what you mean by words like "peering" which are not clear in this context.

08:11<stevem_>those docs are not about network-manager
08:11<igormorgado>Hi ppl I have a 4disk linux raid setup here, one of my disks has failed, after that grub didnt read anymore (ok i fixed that, rewritting grub on all disks), but I have checked my kernel messages and weird thing are there, my dmesg can be seen here: and my proc/mdstat here , in dmesg im afraid of lines 9-12,28-29,86,90,95-97,108,113. Any tips

08:12<peej>stevem_ , n-m has to obey interfaces (and vice versa).
08:13<stevem_>doesn't matter I think I've found it . . . there is a routes button in n-m for preferring traffic

08:47<Villarroel>It is possible to resize the underlaying partition of a mounted filesyste?

08:48<padski>Villarroel, yes
08:48-!-eljefe [] has joined #debian
08:49<Villarroel>padski: which software can do that, I have tried with parted.
08:49<ctux>padski: would you suggest some safe list to me ?
08:49<padski>Villarroel, but there are some limitations on dos partition tables. they are less harsh than they used to be
08:50<maxb>ctux: I suggest commenting out all the third-party repositories, and then only adding in the ones you actually want things from

08:50-!-archie [] has joined #debian
08:50<ctux>maxb: thanks, i would just want to stick to official and backports if feasable
08:51<maxb>Villarroel: No, it's not possible to resize a mounted filesystem. I suppose you could fiddle with the partition table, but doing it while the FS is mounted seems very unwise
08:51-!-gizmo [~tom@] has joined #debian
08:52<maxb>ctux: the other things that are wrong: why include both the us and de mirror? With different component lists!?
08:52<padski>maxb, yes it is. and that's not what he asked even
08:53<ctux>maxb: thats what im wondering about, these people have added all repos from globe that end with debian!
08:53<maxb>ctux: And if you've got security updates enabled for main and contrib only, but you have non-free enabled too
08:53<maxb>padski: Well you can't resize a mounted filesystem, agreed?
08:54<Bushmills>Villarroel: depends on the file system you use, and usually you can't resize while it is mounted
08:54<ctux>maxb: its not me , these are repos set by kdemar linux people on their live cd lyra
08:54<padski>maxb, you can. for example, man resize2fs
08:54<ctux>im getting headache with all these repos enabled
08:55-!-Bearman [] has joined #debian
08:55<maxb>oh, didn't realize ext3 allowed online resize
08:55<Bushmills>ctux: who as added those extra sources?
08:55<padski>maxb, it does :-) very handy too
08:55<maxb>However, wouldn't the kernel block re-reading the partition table whilst the FS was mounted?
08:56<stew>maxb: it allows online growing of a filesystem but not online shrinking
08:56<ctux>Bushmills: these people----->
08:56<padski>maxb, you need to grow the underlying block device first to grow the fs on top of it.
08:56<Bushmills>ctux: they added those sources to your sources.list?
08:56-!-jlbelmonte [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
08:56<Bushmills>ctux: consider to removed their ssh login to your machine, then
08:57<maxb>Right... but can you grow a plain MBR-style partition whilst it's mounted?
08:57<ctux>Bushmills: im on their live cd lyra, wanted to install it but these repos....
08:57-!-jlbelmonte [] has joined #debian
08:57<stew>maxb: what is an MBR-style partition?
08:57<padski>maxb, no I don't think you can do that. apologies.
08:57<Bushmills>ctux: debian comes with debian sources. you got the wrong distribution
08:58<maxb>stew: basic traditional partition tables, rather than something fancier like lvm
08:58<stew>lvm isn't a partition table type
08:58<ctux>Bushmills: i got your point, i know im in a puddle of s** with this distro
08:59<Bushmills>you might be the only person appreciating your own problem on this channel

10:12<jthomas>thats my fear, how to prevent that?
10:12<dpkg>To fix your /etc/resolv.conf: edit /etc/dhcp3/dhclient.conf to include the nameservers you want to use (ask me about <override dns>). Alternatively, use resolvconf and specify the nameservers yourself: echo -e "nameserver a.b.c.d\nnameserver w.x.y.z" > /etc/resolvconf/resolv.conf.d/base (where a.b.c.d and w.x.y.z are your ISPs nameservers).

10:21<jthomas>petemc i have asked dpkg but its only semi-helpful; if i edit /etc/dhcp3/dhclient.conf and want to "prepend nameserver _____" what is the syntax? "prepend domain-name-servers,;" with the comma, semicolon, and hyphens? or seperate lines like "prepend nameserver" \n "prepend nameserver"
10:22<archie>i have found an article on conditional partitioning which suggests adding custom udebs. this still applies for lenny?

10:32<jthomas>yes but it may pull more with it

10:34-!-freealan [] has joined #debian
10:35<jthomas>add it; update the list; install the apps and see if you're ok with the dependencies; then probably remove (or #comment out) the testing line from sources.list so that future installs don't pull from there
10:35<jthomas>or in synaptic, don't #comment out just uncheck it after the install
10:36<peterius>but I have to change it to "etch lenny", not just "etch", and adding "testing" does nothing?

10:47<jthomas>synaptic will have three fields in its "Add Repo" dialog box: URI will be a web address, http or ftp; the Distribution will be either 'lenny' or 'testing' or 'etch' or 'sid' or whatever you want, but ONLY ONE; then the Section(s) will be 'main contrib non-free' or just 'main' or whatever, but that can have multiple sections

10:48<jthomas>peterius you can (with synaptic closed) manually edit the /etc/apt/sources.list file with a text editor (as root) if you need to maybe fix something
10:48<jthomas>oh i hate that thing
10:48<vm>how can I tell which version of debian im running?
10:48<peterius>but that "etch (testing)" in the custom menu options in synaptic is also awkward
10:49<jthomas>cat /etc/debian_version
10:49<jthomas>it shouldn't have 'etch (testing)'... just 'etch' or just 'testing'
10:49-!-ant_ [] has joined #debian
10:49<vm>ok.. now, why doesnt Deeeluge show up in synaptic?
10:50<jthomas>or just 'lenny' if you want to call testing by its name, which works fine also

10:50<peterius>well, I guess I should submit that somewhere as a bug... that's another thing, the update manager doesn't go away after I get its updates, and the bug reporter is such an old version that it won't do anything
10:50<LL00>how I can fix it?
10:50<jthomas>peterius did you click the update before searching, to get the new lists?
10:50<peterius>oh separate issues jthomas, sorry

10:51<vm>LL00, yes i updated
10:52<peterius>jthomas: yeah I should have noticed that. So I guess if you upgrade to testing, the testing is compiled against a bunch of testing libraries and then that's it, you just have to update most everything?
10:53<vm>LL00, Am I supose to add something besides MAIN in the Section(s) part of the repo?
10:53-!-prower [] has quit [Quit: leaving]
10:53<jthomas>depends on what it is but it often wants a lot of new stuff, so yeah. but sometimes it doesn't need a lot of new libs, other times it does. depends on the app.
10:54<jthomas>vm you -can- add 'main non-free contrib' (or any one or two of those three) -- each has its own licensing issues (and those three are for the official debian repos; most 3rd party repos don't have all three)

11:20<peterius>not the compilation but just the whole thing
11:20<jthomas>but i agree with ranix, i dist-upgrade often enough and its fine; once on testing i keep it there (well, except right now when i am on sid)
11:21<jthomas>but the custom kernel thing, i don't know
11:21<peterius>I wish debian was a little more friendly with stuff you compile your source, just in general, not just the kernel
11:21<peterius>from, not *your
11:22<jthomas>its not meant to really be a source-based distro
11:22<peterius>at least some capacity for it... a file that you can easily edit, seperate from the main lists that has informal version info for source-installed stuff, etc..
11:22<peterius>bsd is source-based, right?
11:22<peterius>I don't know any others, and bsd isn't really a distro obviously

13:32<metalqga>ther is an alpha ver of the 64bit flash
13:32<dr|z3d>You don't need to login as root, that's the answer. "sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree" for example will temporarily elevate you to root. Logging in as root is not a good idea.

13:33<simon1245>It's not working :(
13:33<fxiny>what's wrong with su ?
13:33<themill>simon1245: you need to tell us why. sudo isn't installed by default.
13:33<simon1245>When i try on simon1245 it's comes it's not a sudoers file
13:34<dr|z3d>metalqga: It's not? Oh, hmm.. I'm coming from an Ubuntu perspective, I assumed Debian would be similar in respect of sudo.
13:34<dr|z3d>Ah, that's a different issue. You need admin privs for that account.
13:34<themill>dr|z3d: sudo is (for the most part) an illusion of security. It actually can weaken the security of the machine considerably. I'm planning to write a worm that waits for privileges to be elevated and then use the sudo privileges that are cached for 10-15minutes to propagate.

13:35<metalqga>lol themill, go go anti ubuntu! :D
13:35<dr|z3d>themill: Interesting. So su is like sudo without the password caching?
13:35<fxiny>and sudo is not usr friendly at all : a noob can't get the sudoers right in a sec but he can type su in a split second
13:35-!-mastroquet [] has joined #debian
13:35<metalqga>and it's 2 chars less
13:36<fxiny>metalqga: heh
13:36<simonrvn>metalqga: it isn't, no.
13:36<simonrvn>only for root
13:36<themill>dr|z3d: sort of. It also allows you to log in as a user. But su has no restrictions (either you can do it as root or you can't) and has no logging of commands, whereas sudo can do both.
13:37<dr|z3d>themill: Right. Thanks. Think I've got that ;)

14:40<johns>so, I'm install Debian on another freerunner but for some reason this time I'm consistently getting an error, "E: Couldn't make mmap of 25165824 bytes - mmap (22 Invalid argument)"
14:40<dpkg>Getting "E: Dynamic MMap ran out of room" when using apt-get? Put the following line into your /etc/apt/apt.conf: 'APT::Cache-Limit 12582912;' . If you still get the same error, increase the value. If that file doesn't exist, add it, or put that line in a file in /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/ You can also possibly get rid of this error by deleting entries from your sources.list that you don't actually need.
14:41<johns>ah, putting it in /etc/apt/apt.conf might work..

16:04<LL00>cleryd, I already run debian in domU
16:04<LL00>what is a "whiz"?
16:04<cleryd>Here's the thing.
16:05<cleryd>I'm running MS Hyper-V
16:05<cleryd>I've got debian working using emulated drivers.
16:05<LL00>I never try hyper V yet
16:05<cleryd>Hyper-V, when given a patched xen kernel, does this.
16:05<cleryd>But I'm having trouble grokking the whole xen kernel thing.
16:06<cleryd>And I've got some questions, that I believe are the same with xen.
16:06<LL00>I don't if xen kernel can use use for hyper V
16:06<cleryd>I understand.
16:06<cleryd>I don't either, what I know, is that if you were running RHEL, and wanted to do what I want, the first thing is you'd put the xen kernel on.
16:07<cleryd>Then install a 'shim'
16:07<LL00>I think hyper V it's like more kvm
16:07<cleryd>There's a perl script that seems to do this, but it requires a xen kernel.
16:07<onetinsoldier>how can i get grub to automatically probe and set up? (like the debian-installer does it)
16:08<cleryd>So I'm trying to understand better how it works in xen with debian (like how the whole kernel/driver thing works if I was using just xen)
16:09<LL00>with you need to do nothing, just use xen debian kernel for dom0 and for domU
16:10<kop>onetinsoldier : In theory, grub-install. But it's not perfect. You may want to 'info grub'.
16:10<cleryd>LL00, Which one? the vserver one or the other.
16:11<onetinsoldier>kop: thanks. i tried that though and it didn't seem to work, let me try again though.
16:11<LL00>with Xen

16:11<LL00>as para
16:11<cleryd>I installed linux-kernel-2.6.18-5-xen and it didn't add it to grub
16:11<stew>cleryd: try running "update-grub"
16:11<LL00>hum I followed tuto and no problem
16:11<cleryd>But there's also linux-kernel-2.6.18-5-vserver-xen, I can't see the difference.
16:11<cleryd>Thanks stew, I'll try that.
16:11<kop>I want the latest svn version of lcd4linux running in etch. So I'm packaging it by updating the sid version. Thing is, I'm not sure what sort of a version number to supply for the 'debian suffix' instead of -1. What would be a good version number that won't cause trouble in the future?
16:11<LL00>I did netBSD as dom0 and debian as domU
16:12-!-krishna__ [~krishna@] has joined #debian
16:12<cleryd>What I really need to do though, is build a custom kernel, with the xen modules
16:12<LL00>why you need need custom ernel?
16:12<stew>the difference is whether or not they support vserver. however, why are you using 2.6.18-5? it was obsoleted by 2.6.18-6 for security reasonse
16:12-!-paolo [~paolo@] has joined #debian
16:12<cleryd>There's a patch to xen-sysfs.c,
16:13<cleryd>Good to know.
16:13<LL00>isn't it with debian xen kernel?
16:13<cleryd>Either way, I'm trying to build a xen kernel, with a patched xen-sysfs.c
16:13-!-tkoski [] has joined #debian
16:13<cleryd>There isn't a source package, and the source is unclear what the patches are.
16:13<LL00>just add in grub
16:14<kop>onetinsoldier : I always run grub, do something like: root (hd0,0) and then setup (hd0) See the "installing grub natively' info page.
16:14<cleryd>I don't mind building a custom kernel, I'm just pretty confused right now.
16:14<LL00>I mean compile your kernel and add to gub

16:17<stew>cleryd: you might want to ask #debian-xen the xen stuff is confusing, for sure. aiui there is also a 2.6.26 or 2.6.27 kernel with dom0 support now

16:18<LL00>esxi is free one

16:23<kop>cleryd : I'm leaning towards kvm, now that MS has it's finger in Xen so deeply. But I dunno how good it is.

18:15<stew>kop: make sure that tarball is named packagename_upstreamversion.orig.tar.gz and is in ..
18:16<stew>kop: it must be named exactly that, where upstreamversion is the version number without the debian revision (which is everything after the - in the version number)
18:17<kop>stew : Can 'upstreamversion' have a - in it? I used the svn number - my name. I wanted my name in there so it does not get confused with anything official, ever.

18:19<themill>kop: If the latest release was 1.2.3 and you are at svn revision 789, then 1.2.3~svn789~kop-1 would be reasonable (with -2 and -3 etc for future debian revisions of the same source)
18:19<stew>st: its not talking about the bootable/active flag on the partition, it must be talking about something else

18:19<st>let me paste/copy the message

18:21<kop>So, lcd4linux_0.10.1~rc2+svn899~kop-1 would be the right choice. (Currently sid has 0.10.1~rc2, and svn is on 899.)

But, all this is cf, not solid-state disks, which one would _hope_ would be for "real" use and would follow standards better.

19:54<nb9no9nr9>i have what i HOPE is a simple question--how do you keep track of packages you install from tarball rather than apt-get?
19:55<nb9no9nr9>i have noticed that in kpackage there isnt any notice of things i install from tarball
19:57<Bushmills>nb9no9nr9: you tar -tf the contents to a file
19:57<Bushmills>meaning, it is up to you to keep track
19:58<nb9no9nr9>really! there is NO way to use the system to see the packages installed from tarball then?

19:58<Bushmills>the debian package manager doesn't know any tarballs. they don't belong to debian. they're yours

19:59<dr|z3d>In other words. you keep track of them yourself. Manually.
19:59<abrotman>stow or checkinstall
19:59<Bushmills>(though i lied - source packages come as tar)
20:00<nb9no9nr9>oh im not asking if the debian package manager necessarily keeps track of them--i was just wondering if ANY way existed to know whats there except by making a list of them manually
20:00<dr|z3d>It's a bit analogous to just unpacking a zip in Windows.. Add/Remove Programs is ignorant.

20:04<Nemoder>if you can run them from a user directory it's much less likely to cause problems
20:05<abrotman>nb9no9nr9: then make packages out of your software

20:08<dpkg>A simple packaging walkthrough can be found by (as root) "apt-get install maint-guide" and then (as user) www-browser /usr/share/doc/maint-guide/maint-guide.en.html/index.html" (or online). Also ask me about <nmg>. 'Mg' is also the chemical symbol for magnesium, or may mean Madagascar.

20:10<nb9no9nr9>i have already installed a few things as root unfortunately--i have had one sid based install that is 2 1/2 years old now--and i dont remember all i have installed as root from tarball
20:11<Nemoder>well if you're lucky most of them are installed to /usr/local/
20:12<Nemoder>but if any of them happen to overwrite files debian provides then good luck with that mess :P

20:53<dpkg>it has been said that b43 is the new driver for modern Broadcom 802.11g wireless chipsets (, included in Linux since 2.6.24. Use <b43-fwcutter> to extract version 4 firmware for this driver. USB devices are not supported (for 4320, see <rndis_wlan>). 802.11b-only devices and BCM4306 rev 2 are rather supported by the <b43legacy> driver.
20:54<jorge>i've already tried it, but it doesnt work
