00:05<chealer>qdb: your mysql daemon fails to start. the relevant lines are "[ERROR] Can't start server: Bind on TCP/IP port: Cannot assign requested address" and "Do you already have another mysqld server running on port: 3306 ?"
00:05<chealer>what is the answer?

00:07<qdb>i do not have other mysql i think. but may be when i tried to install several times other leaved
00:07<miguel>hi again! :)
00:08<miguel>i disabled bluetooth in bios, tried all you told me. then i enabled bluetooth in bios, tried all again, and anything changed, exactly the same in dmesg, lspci, lsusb, hci*...
00:08<qdb>leaved running in memory
00:09<qdb>that is continuation
00:09<amphi>miguel: what kernel, BTW?
00:09<chealer>qdb: right, but it looks like that was the first error. did you retry after restarting the computer?
00:10<qdb>not i think, don t remember
00:10<amphi>miguel: I ask, as it seems bt toggle is now not functioning here, with .28 ;)
00:10<qdb>should i restart? cannot i kill that other?
00:11<miguel>compile my own custom kernel?
00:12<chealer>qdb: restarting may be an easy way, but you could also kill the problematic process if that's indeed the issue.

00:18<qdb>i said i cannot see logs. i checked "can view logs" in users admin but i still cannot. i do not see mysql in system monitor.
00:20<chealer>qdb: I think you don't need to view more logs for now. you just need to find why you get "Bind on TCP/IP port: Cannot assign requested address" and fix the issue.
00:20<qdb>i did not install bind
00:21-!-snogglethorpe [] has joined #debian
00:23-!-Aquarina [~Aquarina@] has joined #debian

00:27<chealer>qdb: you could restart and retry installing mysql. otherwise, do you have a process which listens on port 3306?
00:28<qdb>i do not know. how can i know. programs i started are xchat and epiphany
00:28<qdb>and gedit and terminal and nautilus
00:29<miguel>how can i compile a kernel? once i tried to do that but when i compiled it, it didn't have an initrd, and didn't work
00:29<Kdas>anyone know a good 3mile+ wifi attena/card?
00:29<qdb>i just want that is made without restart. excuse me. but then at least i will restart
00:29<Kdas>miguel, you must have forgot to do the last steps ;)

00:33<miguel>newsense i don't understand what you told me
00:33<newsense>you using kernel-package ?
00:34<miguel>with kernel-package i can't compile last kernel version, no?
00:34<newsense>dont understand ya buddy sorry
00:35<miguel>i think i didn't use kernel-package when i tried to compile
00:35<newsense>if you are using kernel-package and you need an initrd add --initrd before kernel_image
00:35<newsense>listen to dpkg than and try it out
00:36<chealer>qdb: what does # netstat -ltpn|grep 3306; output?
00:36<newsense>its nice itll make a .deb package of your kernel you can than use dpkg -i to install it
00:36<chealer>miguel: if you don't mind, why do you want to compile a kernel?
00:36<newsense>chealer, comes in the with money question !
00:37-!-berbur [] has joined #debian
00:37<newsense>shoulda been the first thing i said
00:37<miguel>perhaps with a new kernel bluetooth works!! :)
00:37<chealer>Kdas: what do you mean by a "3mile+ wifi attena/card"?
00:40<qdb>there are i have seen other strange lines in syslog with encoding problem
00:40<qdb>qdb@localhost:~$ sudo netstat -ltpn|grep 3306; output--bash: output: command not found
00:40-!-M8ee [] has quit [Quit: Ex-Chat]
00:40<chealer>qdb: the command stops at the ";"
00:41<chealer>miguel: changing random compile options is unlikely to solve problems
00:41<qdb>said nothing
00:42<qdb>qdb@localhost:~$ sudo netstat -ltpn|grep 3306---qdb@localhost:~$
00:42<chealer>qdb: does mysql-server-5.0 still fail to install?
00:44<miguel>do you think it's a bad idea to try with a new kernel?
00:45<newsense>if your gonna try dont use the same version kernel use a newer one
00:45<qdb>i go away for a while
00:46<miguel>i've installed 2.6.26-1-amd64, i think the last version is...2.6.28
00:46<miguel>with kernel-package i can compile 2.6.28?
00:46<newsense>miguel you dont by any chance need firmware do you "bluez-firmware"
00:47<newsense>for a broadcom dongle
00:47<miguel>i don't understand that (i'm spanish :$)
00:47<chealer>qdb: what does # ifconfig; output?
00:47<newsense>knew i seen a package before related to firmware and spoke before i looked at the description
00:49<newsense>miguel, is this a laptop ?
00:49<miguel>Dell XPS M1330, yes, a laptop
00:50<newsense>is there a button for bluetooth ?
00:50<newsense>is it on
00:50<miguel>there's a switch that can can enable/disable bluetooth and wifi or both
00:51-!-path_ [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
00:51<miguel>but i disabled it, and can't disable anything now
00:51<miguel>so wifi and bluetooth are on (in fact, i'm using wifi)
00:52<newsense>maybe try just bluetooth i dunno
00:54-!-squid [~squid@] has joined #debian
00:54<squid>hi all
00:54<newsense>miguel, btw i googled your model and everyone says bluetooth just works out of the box with linux
00:54<newsense>and they even sell it with ubuntu preinstalled
00:55<miguel>yes, i also saw that
00:55<newsense>miguel, your the only person on the planet with this problem go figure
00:55<newsense>might want to send it to dell
00:55<miguel>i think the problem is that when i installed debian the bluetooth was disabled in bios
00:55<miguel>could it be possible?
00:56<newsense>that wouldnt effect ti
00:57<miguel>there's no solution then :(

01:48<qdb>now mysql is installed

02:06<Supaplex>what's a palm pilot? is that another way to say rosy palm and her five sisters?
02:06-!-evertt_zufelt [] has joined #debian
02:06<bartleby>are you joking supaplex?
02:06<Supaplex>yes haha :)
02:07<evertt_zufelt>I keep getting invalid block size when trying to coppy an image to an SD card using dd for windows. Any suggestions?
02:07<PMT>what image?
02:08<Supaplex>mmm, install debian?
02:10<evertt_zufelt>PMT: debian-eeepc.img It works fine on a USB memory stick, but not SD.
02:10<Supaplex>evertt_zufelt: ahh. there's a utility called physdisk for windows that'll do similar to dd. maybe your bs= is off?
02:10<squid>evertt_zufelt how to mount USB Flash in debian and put those image on it?
02:11<craigevil>easier to just install it to the ssd and quicker
02:12-!-till_ [] has joined #debian
02:12<evertt_zufelt>craigevil: Trying to get Debian installed on my eeepc, but running into some problems. Basically trying to setup the eeepc installer so that I can use it through ssh.
02:12<craigevil>never used ssh, you might have to go with the Standard install method
02:13<evertt_zufelt>I think you're right. I downloaded the necessary files for both.
02:14<evertt_zufelt>craigevil: It's been a journey trying to get Debian onto my eeepc as a completely blind user, but I think I'm getting close now.
02:14<craigevil>no luck finding someone to help?
02:15<qdb>hello. when i tried to block screen and then switch user to unlogged user i could not. now i have gone to log out then switch user and could log in to it. then i switched user and once i logged back without password prompt! once it said you can return back to your session and i selected it and it asked for password second time.
02:15<squid>where download from usb img?
02:16<squid>or do it from debian intall cd?

02:19<CMack>hello all
02:20<CMack>have a question regarding Etch on an iMac G3 NewWorld. Specifically, how to get the screen to sleep entirely from only the console.
02:21<evertt_zufelt>craigevil: Not yet. But, more importantly, I would like to do it myself so that I can create a howto for other blind users. There quite a few blind users looking for an accessible way to get Debian onto their computers. It is far better than Ubuntu for use with the Orca screen-reader and supports far more hardware than OpenSolaris
02:21-!-wishful [] has joined #debian
02:21<qdb>is switchi user going to be changed?
02:21<CMack>It does blank properly, but this screen has a fairly high brightness level, and I'd like to see if it's possible to get it to completely power down as it does under Gnome.

02:26<phorce1>CMack: man setterm
02:27<phorce1>CMack: search for powerdown (or maybe poweroff)
02:27<CMack>phorce1: thanks for your response, but I have tried that, and while the blank time setting works, the poweroff setting is ignored completely
02:27<CMack>I may not have all I need for power management
02:27<CMack>any idea what package is useful on PPC Debian?
02:28<phorce1>try setterm -powersave powerdown and see if it goes to sleep
02:29<phorce1>did it power down?
02:29<CMack>response is: "cannot (un)set powersave mode"
02:29<CMack>this as root, btw
02:31<phorce1>CMack: OK, mine doesn't work in console either. Now I'll be up all night trying to figure out what used to be different that made it work
02:31<CMack>sorry? :D
02:31<phorce1>(no error, just didn't do anything)
02:31<CMack>If I knew how Gnome was pulling it off (or maybe it's XORG itself), there might be some hope
02:31-!-evertt_zufelt [] has joined #debian
02:32<CMack>but I'm trying to avoid running a window environment at all costs to keep this little box speedy
02:32<phorce1>CMack: OH, you're trying it in an xterm
02:32<CMack>I am
02:32<phorce1>that's where the error comes from
02:32<CMack>sorry, I wasn't clear enough about that
02:33<CMack>yeah, running pure prompt if I can help it
02:33<CMack>it's just an IRC client box atm
02:33<phorce1>CMack: in an xterm -- 'xset dpms force off'
02:33<evertt_zufelt>Can anyone point me to a clear howto on setting up the standard debian installer to allow me to connect to it using ssh?
02:33<CMack>one sec, trying
02:33-!-berbur [] has joined #debian
02:33<evertt_zufelt>Note, I have the installer on a USB memory stick.
02:34<CMack>phorce1: response is: xset: unable to open display ""
02:34<phorce1>evertt_zufelt: never done a no-keyboard install, sorry
02:34<phorce1>CMack: do it as the user who is logged into X
02:34<CMack>ah well that's the problem
02:34<CMack>I'm not running X at all
02:35<CMack>is what I'm looking for specific to X?
02:35<phorce1>you are in an xterm, so you are running an X server, just maybe not a window manager
02:35-!-freex [] has joined #debian
02:36<CMack>okay, I think we have confusion in terminology
02:36<CMack>I'm at a basic prompt, no manager or X environment whatsoever
02:36<CMack>I *did* have Gnome running on this box at one point
02:36<CMack>that's when I saw that it could power the screen down
02:36<freex>hi all
02:36-!-linac [~lin@] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
02:36<CMack>now that I've gone back to pure prompt, I was hoping that behavior could still be invoked
02:37<phorce1>CMack: hmmm then I don't know why setterm gave you the error you were getting
02:37<phorce1>CMack: it only does that to me when I run it insode X. When run outside of X at a pure TTY it just silently does nothing
02:38<craigevil>evertt_zufelt: try
02:38<phorce1>CMack: and, yes, xset is specific to X
02:38<CMack>well that at least explains why that command was giving me the virtual finger, then
02:38<phorce1>CMack: you need setterm (and need to know why it is failing)

02:41<CMack>I think you're right...
02:41<CMack>I tried looking through apt repository for it
02:41<CMack>but no dice
02:41<rafiks>gsimmons: what now?
02:42<gsimmons>rafiks: Use something else?
02:42<rafiks>gsimmons: kinda forces me to do it..
02:42<CMack>strike that
02:42<CMack>found it
02:42<rafiks>gsimmons: using irssi now
02:43<CMack>"No APM support in kernel"
02:43<CMack>in other words, I missed something crucial during install
02:44<phorce1>CMack: heh
02:45<phorce1>something that X loads with the video hardware to be able to do it from insode X
02:45<CMack>no doubt
02:46*phorce1 has a "NightNight" button on the toolbar that DPMS powers down the monitor without having to wait for the screen saver to kick in

03:30<aetheria>i have a backup of a 64-bit system and cannot chroot into it. is there a way to query the package cache with dpkg to list what packages were installed in it?
03:34<oobe>aetheria, cat the cache files
03:35<aetheria>oobe: they are not readable
03:35<aetheria>not int text format that is
03:36<aetheria>i need a switch to dpkg to tell it to read from an alternate pkgcache
03:36<stew>aetheria: you could look at /var/lib/dpkg/status
03:36-!-jackyf [] has joined #debian
03:38<aetheria>stew: ah yes. i was using that, and made an error and was reading the wrong one by accident
03:38<aetheria>awk '/ok installed/ { if (x) print x } { x = $0 }' var/lib/dpkg/status |cut -d " " -f 2 |sort -n |less

04:56<enouf>!tell hachi -about interfaces
04:56<enouf>!tell hachi -about z25
04:57<hachi>neither of those articles give me new information
04:57<hachi>the device is named properly at boot
04:58<EmleyMoor>hachi: What is going wrong with it?
04:58<hachi>like I said
04:58<hachi>at boot
04:58<hachi>no IP address/default gateway
04:58<hachi>ifdown eth0; ifup eth0
04:58<hachi>fixes it
04:58<hachi>BUT, ifup eth0 claims the device is already configured
04:58<hachi>if I don'w call ifdown first
04:59<hachi>so the startup scripts obviously are thinking the device is being started
04:59<aetheria>hachi: FWIW i have so many issues with ifupdown that i'm pretty much ready to bypass it and write my own script
04:59<EmleyMoor>Can you pastebin your /etc/network/interfaces?
04:59<hachi>sure, it's the one generated by the lenny installer
04:59<aetheria>once you start trying to do more things with it like tun and bridged interfaces, things get worse
04:59<enouf>hachi: try 'ifconfig eth0 up' .. ls /etc/init.d/if*

05:01<hachi> # interfaces
05:02<enouf>hachi: it's possible your NIC module isn't being loaded properly on boot - you should pastebin dmesg | grep eth , lspci -k, and /interfaces , etc
05:02<hachi>/etc/init.d/ifupdown /etc/init.d/ifupdown-clean
05:02<enouf>ok, for the ls output, afaik
05:03<hachi>I've added the module to /etc/modules as an attempt to make this work
05:03<aetheria>yeah hachi i would look in syslog for possible messages related to networking
05:03<hachi>the module is loaded at boot
05:03<hachi>nothing in syslog
05:03<enouf>hachi: might need it loaded from initrd ... so, which module and NIC? (things i asked for would show which)
05:03<hachi>no, you didn't ask for that
05:04<dpkg>one warez list being sent to ubuntu
05:04<enouf>dude - 'lspci -k' would
05:04<EmleyMoor>Does it need allow-hotplug or might auto be better?
05:04<hachi>tried both allow-hotplug and auto
05:04<enouf>EmleyMoor: nope - auto is better
05:05<hachi>lspci needs to be installed, since this is a bare lenny box
05:05<hachi>so I have to down/up the interface now
05:05<hachi>and I can't get you any more of the tainted output
05:06<hachi> Kernel driver in use: bnx2

05:09<enouf>let's see your entire dmesg
05:09<gsimmons>hachi: Any errors reported concerning the loading of this firmware during boot? Your issue sounds like bug #494936, but this was fixed back in October.

05:22<hachi>kvm doesn't have a 'start these virtual machines on boot' that I can see

07:48<IHateWindows>I was wondering if someone could help me with a kernel panic I am having
07:49<IHateWindows>I'm running debian lenny, and sometimes randomly the computer will lock up and the Caps Lock light will flash
07:49<IHateWindows>it did the same thing in ubuntu as well
07:49<enouf>run memtest86+
07:49<enouf>reseat all pci cards and ram sticks
07:50<IHateWindows>i already did that....laptop is fine and all tests passed
07:50<enouf>try other kernel versions
07:50<IHateWindows>i fixed it before in ubuntu by installing some backports module in synaptic
07:50<enouf>compile a kernel and try to force it .. check BIOS settings
07:50<enouf>maybe even try cpuburn

12:51<SamuraiDio>my doubt is why that works fine at boot (when i boot up the pc with the modem plugges in) and not if i plug it later

12:55<cahoot>dmesg acknowledges the modem when it's plugged in?
12:55<enouf>SamuraiDio: take comparisons of output of something like "udevinfo -q all -n /dev/usb/usb0" (or whatever the /dev/name given to it - use dmesg to see perhaps) - you can swap the .. '-n /dev/../..' part with '-p /sys/../..' if that works better

13:57<Wasp>Hey guys, im in the process of trying to install debian lenny.
13:57<Wasp>I've ran into some trouble when trying to set up my wireless (I have the Intel (R) Wireless WiFi Link 4965AGN).
13:57<Wasp>This particular adapter is supposed to be supported by the linux kernel 2.6.24 and later.
13:57<Wasp> Once I started the installation I got to a point where it told me that I
13:57<Wasp> required the firmware file iwlwifi-4965-1.ucode.
13:57-!-Wasp was kicked from #debian by debhelper [use the paster bot or #flood]

16:15<pete_>I've just checked all of the wiring and router settings. I'm thinking that its either some config file in Lenny, or my NIC is starting to go bad. Any thoughts?

I'm running ubuntu 8.10 and there is only the "modprobe.d/" folder, so which file should I edit? I also don't find this "thinkpad_ec" in there. what should I do? thanks!

21:56<Supaplex>kingsley: /etc/hosts does not compare?
21:56<Supaplex>!tell umarzuki -about search
21:57<mgoetze>kingsley: host, dig and nslookup all query dns
21:57<mgoetze>kingsley: ping uses the system libc resolver
21:57<mgoetze>kingsley: which can be configured using /etc/nsswitch.conf
21:58<mgoetze>kingsley: to test the system resolver, you can use "getent hosts $hostname"
22:00-!-rickbot [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
22:00<kingsley>mgoetze: That's all very interesting. Thanks.
22:01<mgoetze>kingsley: sure. if you have any more questions, just ask :)
22:01<kingsley>mgoetze: Do you happen to know why ping doesn't query dns?
22:01<Supaplex>kingsley: did you look at /etc/hosts ?
22:01<mgoetze>kingsley: well you might not want it to
22:02<kingsley>Supaplex: The domain names aren't in /etc/hosts because their IP addresses are assigned by dhcp.
22:02<mgoetze>kingsley: for instance, you might prefer writing "ping host" to "ping"
22:02-!-Ikki [~akazuki@] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
22:02<mgoetze>kingsley: so what does it say in the "hosts:" line of your /etc/nsswitch.conf ?
22:02<Supaplex>kingsley: show us the nsswitch.conf at - maybe you have mdns or something

22:08<kingsley>mgoetze: I'm open to installing avahi-utils, but I find myself wondering how, if at all, it would affect ping. Do you happen to know?
22:09<mgoetze>kingsley: as i said, ping uses the system resolver configured by /etc/nsswitch.conf
22:09<mgoetze>kingsley: and your nsswtich.conf specifies mdns before dns
22:09<mgoetze>kingsley: and avahi implements mdns, so if you want to debug that...
22:09<kingsley>mgoetze: OK, that makes sense.
22:10<kingsley>mgoetze: Would not a more minimalistic approach be to edit /etc/nsswitch.conf so it doesn't refer to mdns?
22:10-!-AzaTht [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
22:10<mgoetze>kingsley: yes, if you don't care about mdns :)
22:11<mgoetze>kingsley: also, after editing nsswitch.conf, restart nscd if you use that
22:11<mgoetze>(or better yet, stop it if it's running without a reason)
22:11<kingsley>mgoetze: I may not know what I'm missing, but I've gotten by fine without mdns so far.
22:12<mgoetze>kingsley: mdns is useful in adhoc networks, e.g. someone comes to visit your house and joins your wlan, and thanks to mdns you can ping his machine by name and whatnot
22:12<mgoetze>kingsley: but normally you don't need it, yeah :)
22:13<kingsley>mgoetze: Very good.
22:13<kingsley>It's time to re-boot.

22:35<kingsley>mgoetze: There are three "nameserver" lines in /etc/resolv.conf. The first uses dig reports the correct IP address with it. The other two nameservers seem to belong to my ISP and return the wrong IP address when used with dig.
22:35<mgoetze>kingsley: you mentioned dhcp? what is the setting of ddns-update-style in your dhcpd.conf?
22:36-!-MattD [~mdaughert@] has joined #debian
22:37<mgoetze>kingsley: i'm a bit confused which is the "correct" ip address, is it the one you get with ping?
22:37<kingsley>mgoetze: Thanks for asking. I am using dhcp, but it is provided by dnsmasq. dnsmasq.conf contains no "style" string.
22:38<kingsley>mgoetze: That's an important distinction. ping returns the wrong IP address. dig, host and nslookup return the right IP address.
22:38<mgoetze>kingsley: in that case dnsmasq is surely also running the dns server on
22:38-!-chealer [] has joined #debian
22:39<kingsley>mgoetze: You are correct-a-mundo.
22:40<kingsley>Having said that, I'm still at a loss as to why ping returns the wrong IP address...
22:40<mgoetze>kingsley: so your dhcp process is setting some stuff on your local dns, but it's not globally valid
22:41<mgoetze>kingsley: but yeah, it's strange, according to the manpage should be asked first
22:41-!-freealan [] has joined #debian
22:41<mgoetze>kingsley: any other options in resolv.conf?
22:42<kingsley>mgoetze: If I underdstand you correctly, yes. To be precise, dnsmasq is assigning private network IP addresses to a domain name that's also registered to an IP address outside the private net.
22:43<kingsley>mgoetze: Yes, there are two other options in resolv.conf.

22:44<kingsley>which is left over from using diald to establish a ppp connection years ago, and I assume it can be safely removed.
22:44<mgoetze>kingsley: you probably want to take out the rotate option then...
22:44<kingsley>mgoetze: The second line in /etc/resolv.conf says...
22:45<kingsley>mgoetze: domain
22:45<mgoetze>kingsley: because otherwise you only have a 1 in 3 chance of getting the right answer
22:45<rickbot>inxi is similar to infobash. free -m says: total 885

23:28<craigevil>Guest1807: you probably just need the any.any.patch google it
23:29<rickbot>memory problem solved!
23:29<Guest1807>craigevil: I thought you were joking for a second
23:29<rickbot>needed to install the 'bigmem' version of the kernel ;)
23:30<Guest1807>craigevil: Whats that do anyways?
23:30<Xrm>umm, where does apt-get install to anyway?
23:30<Xrm>cuz i cant find what i jsut isntalled
23:30<craigevil>fixes it so vmware sees the correct kernel path
23:31<Guest1807>Hmm so is there any doc how to use it?
23:31-!-jtaji [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
23:31<craigevil>it should just be a .deb or .bin that runs, you use it first then install vmware, or you can just use virtual-box :)
23:33<Guest1807>But the problem was that the bundle from the installer I got won't even extract correctly, is that the same issue?

23:34<craigevil>i havent messed wth vmware since virtualbox came out and the new virtualbox will use vmware images
23:34-!-elstop [] has left #debian []
23:35<Guest1807>Hmm does it have better performance than vmware?
23:35<craigevil>even supports OPenGL in the 2.1 version
23:35<Guest1807>Hmm what are the reqs?
23:35<craigevil>its runs on this crappy dell with 512 ram
23:36<Guest1807>No not like that :p, for the kernel
23:36<craigevil>Guest1807: its a debian package just aptitude install
23:36<Xrm>whats it mean when it tells me "awk: cannot open /lib/modules//2.6.18-6-686/build/include/linux/version.h (No such file or directory)
23:36<Guest1807>I think I just jizzed in my pants
23:37<Xrm>cuz i get that every time i try to use "make all" to complie the source
23:38-!-rickbot [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
23:38<Guest1807>Is there anyway to compile your own kernel from, with deb patchs and virtualbox patches?
23:40-!-cheal [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
23:40<craigevil>hell if your going to compile a new kernel might as well go with 2.6.28
23:40<Guest1807>Well I have a grsecurity patch :p

23:42<craigevil>Xrm: search for qc-usb-source
23:43<Guest1807>So craigevil, what would you recommend?
23:43<craigevil>Xrm: install this then use module-assistant to build the module
23:43<Xrm>craigevil: Thats what i'm reading in the fourm posts
23:44<Xrm>i was actually about to ask about module-assistant
23:44-!-elstop [] has quit []
23:44<craigevil>ive never used the grsecurity patch
23:44<Xrm>it says to use "m-a" to open it, yet it says command not found
23:44<Guest1807>craigevil: It is a very nice addition to the kernel, adds a lot of security features, and some enhancements (entropy pool enlargement)
23:44-!-dmoerner [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
23:45<craigevil>Xrm: aptitude install build-essential module-assistant
23:45<Xrm>that makes sense :\
23:46<Guest1807>So should I just restart with the debian built kernel till they update to .28?
23:46<craigevil>ad why your at it add qc-usb-source to that
23:46<Xrm>i already have that one
23:46<Xrm>i found where apt-get placed it
23:46<Xrm>so i just needed the m-a

23:52<craigevil>zenity :)
23:52<Guest1807>craigevil: which kernel should i stick with then? The mainstream or one of these (xen,vserver,openvz)
23:52-!-trompo [] has left #debian []
23:53<craigevil>you just need the normal kernel if your running a desktop and want to play with virtualbox
23:53<khirr>craigevil is there other like that, with many things like gtk
