00:09<edbian>Looking for some feedback on my website running on my debian server
00:10-!-shijir69 [~shijir69@] has joined #debian
00:10<shijir69>which server is better for play?
00:11<ml|>shijir69: don't know, but not here
00:12-!-sutula [] has joined #debian
00:12<shijir69>what's mean debian
00:13<ml|>dpkg: tell shijir69 about debian
00:15<shijir69>it is like ubuntu?
00:15-!-etzerd [] has joined #debian
00:15<edbian>shijir69, It is more free than Ubuntu
00:15<etzerd>hello all
00:15-!-XayOn [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:15<etzerd>what is the last version of debian?
00:16-!-nteon [] has joined #debian
00:16<edbian>etzerd, Lenny is stable, squeeze I think is the testing release right now. In order to get squeeze you download and install stable (lenny) and change the repos
00:17-!-machina [] has joined #debian
00:17-!-shijir69 [~shijir69@] has left #debian []
00:18<ml|>edbian: not bad; on your how to might be better to add boxes or something similar to hilight the code, like code box in debian forums for example and instead of using sudo use # to denote it needs to be run as root as sudo is not installed by default
00:18<etzerd>edbian: I'm a rookie whent it come to debian. How easy is the installation?
00:19<ml|>edbian: also $ to denote as regular user IMHO
00:19<edbian>etzerd, It is insanely easy if you're installing on a blank hard drive
00:19<edbian>ml|, Thank you! :D You're comments are greatly appreciated
00:19<edbian>ml|, That
00:20<edbian>ml|, I don't feel comfortable accepting money. Maybe one day I'll add that. Thanks again for the input
00:20<ml|>edbian: np, but read that again ;)
00:20<etzerd>edbian: I have 2 partition on my hard drive. Windows 7 and Ubuntu. whould I remove Ubuntu and Install debian or I can install them side by side?
00:21<edbian>ml|, Oh, thanks :P
00:21<edbian>etzerd, If there is enough room you can install them side by side.
00:22<ml|>edbian: hehe
00:22<edbian>etzerd, If you have 0 personal files both ubuntu and debian will need at least 5GB.
00:22<etzerd>I have a 320 Gig HD
00:23<edbian>etzerd, Also, debian is older than ubuntu and it uses the older version of grub which will not recognize ext4 partitions (or boot them)
00:23-!-kf__ [~kf@] has joined #debian
00:23<kf__>i have update it 0.17
00:23<edbian>etzerd, If I had a 320 Gb HDD I could probably fit a dozen operating systems. It depends how much of that is filled with personal files
00:23<kf__>then what should i do?
00:23<ml|>etzerd: this should help
00:24-!-Guest1493 is now known as dcraig
00:24<edbian>etzerd, I'm not sure how debian handles windows 7. I don't forsee a major problem though
00:24<ml|>dpkg: tell etzerd about debian reference
00:24-!-dcraig is now known as Guest1497
00:25<ml|>dpkg: tell etzerd about install
00:25<ml|>etzerd: those should help you, read the messages dpkg sent you
00:25-!-cor_r [] has joined #debian
00:25<edbian>etzerd, Anytime
00:25<gsimmons>kf__: "modprobe -r iwlagn ; modprobe iwlagn" and start using the interface. See for details.
00:25<etzerd>I think I will wait for the new version of debian.
00:27<edbian>etzerd, That might take 2 or 3 years ;)
00:27<etzerd>good night all. it is now 12:30AM in the west. I'm going to bed
00:27<edbian>etzerd, The current version is only about a year old
00:27<etzerd>is debian have a new version every 6 months like the others?
00:28-!-kf__ [~kf@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:28<edbian>etzerd, Not all of them do that
00:28-!-jcwu [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:28<ml|>etzerd: debian is released when it's ready
00:28<edbian>etzerd, Part of the reason I switched from ubuntu to debian was because of that 6 month business. After only 12 months I got annoyed
00:29-!-Colossus [~dragomir@] has joined #debian
00:29*ml| hopes this will still be the case
00:29-!-Colossus [~dragomir@] has quit []
00:29<jrabbit>If stable is too slow for you try unstable or testing
00:30<cor_r>etzerd, yeah go for sid ;) its pretty nice
00:30-!-ubic [] has joined #debian
00:30<jrabbit>(I can't attest to unstable really but I've heard its acceptable for desktop use from folks)
00:30<etzerd>cor_r: whtat is sid? never heard of
00:30<ml|>don't recommend sid it's not supported here and for a new person to debian
00:31<pipe>no, if you're new to debian, try stable
00:31<cor_r>for switiching from win to linux over ubuntu is ok, but after a while you should just abandon buntkuh
00:31<cor_r>etzerd , unstable of debian
00:31<pipe>but I've used testing for a long time, haven't had any serious problems
00:32<pipe>cor_r: I run ubuntu when I'm lazy :)
00:32<etzerd>good night everyone
00:32<etzerd>brb tomorrow
00:32<ml|>etzerd: you want lenny/stable
00:33<cor_r>pipe, yeah sometimes I like point and click adventures as well, but it is always the action shooter stapeling me to my seat
00:33<pipe>Had to install ubuntu server on a machine yesterday too, since neither debian stable nor testing worked on the platform
00:34<pipe>and no one has cared about the bug report since september so I doubt it'll get fixed :P
00:34<ml|>pipe: how come?
00:34<cor_r>you could have used fedora or even freebsd...but ubuntu? :(
00:34<pipe>via epia-ex platform
00:34-!-scrp3l [~scrp3l@] has quit [Quit: Ex-Chat]
00:34<pipe>Had to install ubuntu 8.10 then dist-upgrade to 9.04 and 9.10 for it to work
00:34<pipe>It might have worked by installing like, etch
00:35<pipe>and then doing the same, but I didn't have a cd with etch around
00:35<ml|>download ;)
00:36<pipe>yeah but after having tested with four different distros I was quite happy when the 8.10 ubuntu server actually worked :P
00:36<ml|>picky machine
00:36-!-et1783 [] has joined #debian
00:37-!-etzerd [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
00:37*pipe wonders what would happen if he replaces all the ubuntu repositories in sources.list with debian sources and does a dist upgrade...
00:37<cor_r>there is not really much buntkuh still has in common with debian
00:37<pipe>have to try in a vm some day
00:38<ml|>!nuke ubuntu
00:38*dpkg fires an 80 ton thermonuclear weapon at ubuntu
00:38<pipe>Can't see why you're so negative to ubuntu
00:38<pipe>I'm very happy it exists
00:38<cor_r>ml|, that was really really cool, gotta ask the channel op to put this in our channel as well :D
00:38<ml|>who me?
00:38<pipe>you = random people
00:38<pipe>And that the most usable "beginner linux" is based on debian
00:39<pipe>It's just good for everyone
00:39<ml|>dpkg: rocks
00:39<dpkg>Yer damned right...
00:39<ml|>cor_r: yeah dpkg is da bomb
00:40<cor_r>buntkuh is nice especially for beginners coming from win, but thats it..after half year you should switch and get a ditro wich really bases on debian
00:40<[BT]Brendan>What's bad about Ubuntu?
00:40<dpkg>Please keep the discussions in #debian on-topic (i.e. Debian support); imagine the chaos if each of the hundreds of people in the channel felt the need to wander off topic for a few minutes every day. #debian-offtopic is the place for longer off-topic discussions.

00:40<[BT]Brendan>What makes debian better than Ubuntu?*
00:40<cor_r>ml|, thanks-.- ;)
00:41<ml|>np, heh
00:41<edbian>[BT]Brendan, The free-ness, the stability
00:42<[BT]Brendan>Aren't they both supposed to be free and stable?
00:42<[BT]Brendan>free atleast...
00:42<pipe>not as free nd not as stable :)
00:42<pipe>debian is kinda anal about freedom, which is one major reason I use it
00:42<[BT]Brendan>What do you mean by it being more free?
00:42<Nemoder>and also the reason we have iceweasel instead of firefox :)
00:43<cor_r>and I think buntkuh doesnt holds fast the core values and social contrat of DeDebian

00:43<dpkg>dfsg is, like, the Debian Free Software Guidelines, which are explained at
00:44-!-scientes [] has quit [Read error: Operation timed out]
00:44<cor_r>thx again for all your dpkg knowledge :D
00:44<pipe>[BT]Brendan: You can basically do whatever you want with debian, Ubuntu includes software where that does not hold true, for example firefox, also certain closed hardware drivers and more.
00:44<ml|>cor_r: /msg dpkg help and/or dpkgbot
00:45<cor_r>ah thx, always wondered how evryone knows ;)
00:46<pipe>what is this?! "No Discrimination Against Persons or Groups". Now I can't release my anti-eskimo linux :(
00:46-!-pos [~mark@] has joined #debian
00:46<seeS>pipe: there actually have been times where this sort of thing has been tried, not eskimos afaik
00:46<cor_r>how is discriminatin defined? and does buntkuh count as group or organisation?
00:47<ml|>as if eskimos had computers ;)
00:47<Nemoder>well technically if it was your own debian varient you could
00:47-!-edbian [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
00:47<seeS>easily, "this program is free to use except for people who are XYZ"
00:47<Nemoder>the no discrimination rule is just for debian itself
00:48<ml|>Nemoder: yep
00:48<cor_r>Nemoder , YES :D
00:48<pipe>seeS: I've only heard about non-business use, non-nuclear-research and such
00:48<Nemoder>just dont come to us for support when you get skewerd by an eskimo
00:48<seeS>pipe: those two and the third I know of is cannot be used for CB-radio operators
00:49<pipe>Wtf :)
00:49<seeS>hamradio/amateur radio code has a long sad sad history of retarded licenses

00:52<jrabbit>theres weird radio/wifi/itnernet mashups
00:52<jrabbit>and they're very FCC crippled sadly
00:52<seeS>and then you can take over all the maintenance of hamradio packages
00:52<pipe>Are they orphaned?
00:53<pipe>Or are you the maintainer? :)
00:53<seeS>nah, in the dark dim history of the project i was

02:03<ml|>dpkg: why iceweasel
02:03<dpkg>Due to Mozilla logos licensing, Mozilla software isn't DFSG-free, so Debian distributes Mozilla software with different logos. One day Mozilla Corporation decided to revoke the agreement to let Debian use Mozilla trademarks, so Debian changed to non-trademarked product names. See for more information. Ask me about <dfsg>.

02:32<sney>haven't heard anything odd about the xorg in lenny
02:32<]{orruption^vi>Can anyone help a linux noob with his first install? Everything installed great, but I'm stuck at the login screen. Either I have the normal user account name wrong or it doesn't exist. How can I edit users before logging in (I have my root password)?
02:32<sney>you can log in as root
02:32<]{orruption^vi>how so
02:32<sney>use 'root' as the username instead of your regular user
02:33<]{orruption^vi>didnt work
02:33<kaduk>for Uubuntu it does not
02:33<kaduk>sudo su
02:33<sney>we don't support ubuntu here.
02:33<dpkg>Ubuntu is based on Debian, but it is not Debian, and it is unlikely to live up to Debian's standards (see <Debian policy>). Only Debian is supported on #debian. Use #ubuntu ( instead. Even if the channel happens to be less helpful, support for distributions other than Debian is offtopic on #debian. See also <based on debian>.
02:33<]{orruption^vi>ill try to use "Root" and "root" again just to make sure
02:34<BobHartge>single user
02:34<sney>it'll never be in caps, that's for sure
02:34<kaduk>]{orruption^vi, if you root password does not work you can reset it booting in single user
02:34<]{orruption^vi>im already in single user mode
02:34<kaduk>]{orruption^vi, or booting with init=/bin/sh parameter
02:34<BobHartge>you should be able to add users from there
02:35<kaduk>or change password
02:35-!-et1783 [] has joined #debian
02:35<]{orruption^vi>what is the dif between single user mode and regular?

02:36<kaduk>apt-listbugs dont report anything
02:36<]{orruption^vi>ahh, sney. its letting me login as root now. last time i wasnt in single user mode
02:36<kaduk>either it did not report anything when X was crashing
02:36<kaduk>I had to downgrade

02:37<]{orruption^vi>why can i login as root in single user mode but not regular mode?
02:37<pipe>]{orruption^vi: single-user mode is a special mode in the system, you souldn't normally run in that mode, but it's for system maintenance etc
02:37<sney>kaduk: sometimes things in sid are just broken

03:37<goodger>good morning--- a few weeks ago my squeeze installation's copy of gnome-bluetooth started telling me that my system has no bluetooth adaptors plugged in, which is a filthy lie--- can anyone offer advice?
03:38<pipe>there are some random issues with certain btadapters
03:39<pipe>is it a usb adapter?
03:40<goodger>no, it's built-in
03:41<goodger>running hcitool says "no such device", but it shows up on lsmod
03:41<goodger>googling suggests to add lenny repositories to sources.list, to which I say "wat"
03:41-!-DarkPurpose [~skipclayt@] has joined #debian
03:42<goodger>pipe: is that a recommendation to do so?
03:43<pipe>I have no idea, really
03:43-!-rzyz [] has joined #debian
03:43<goodger>well, thanks anyway :/
03:43<pipe>The only thing I can imagine is that somehow, a package was removed from squeeze because another package replace the functionionality, and now the new package is broken?
03:43-!-diggy [~digger@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
03:44<goodger>might be
03:44-!-]{orruption^vi [] has quit []
03:44<goodger>that would conform to squeeze's groundbreaking policy of being, rather than an operating system, a very large collection of bugs made available on compact discs
03:45<pipe>"The current "stable" distribution of Debian GNU/Linux is version 5.0.3, codenamed lenny."
03:45<pipe>HTH :P
03:45<goodger>lenny wasn't this bad when it was testing
03:46<goodger>it broke perhaps twice
03:46<goodger>squeeze is insane
03:46<pipe>I've run squeeze a lot, never had any real issues
03:46<valdyn>goodger: the fact that *you* are hitting a bug is coincidence, not a proof that squeeze is worse than lenny
03:46<goodger>I am hitting bug after bug after bug :/
03:47<goodger>but meh
03:47<valdyn>goodger: beside that you should be using lenny in the first place
03:47<cahoot>isn't stumbling on bugs one of the points with testing?
03:47-!-gerzel [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
03:47<pipe>indeed it is
03:47<jmarsden>goodger: Thanks for testing "testing". You *are* filing bug report after bug report, right?

03:48<goodger>my point is that these are bugs of magnitude sufficient in their grossness to ensure their detection during the ten days they are supposed to spend being poked intensely before migrating to testing at all
03:48<goodger>it seems some maintainers are being more lax than others in this regard
03:49<valdyn>goodger: thats not news
03:49<valdyn>goodger: maintainers even sleep for year(s)
03:49<goodger>if they sleep for years they generally make no uploads at all, rather than uploading faulty stuff to testing
03:49<goodger>but I digress
03:50<goodger>is anyone in a position to assist me with my bluetooth problem, or is the consensus that I should downgrade to lenny and stop moaning?
03:50<valdyn>goodger: you can tell that its *their* faulty stuff once you know the bug fix, but maybe this is a package interaction issue and they are not even at fault

08:46<tuxcrafter>and now my mouse does not work anymore
08:46<twb>The *real* reason this concerns me is because I have a target release (testing) set in my apt.conf

09:14<etenil>Hi all
09:14<etenil>ah ah
09:15<etenil>When compiling programs in debian, is there a place where i can define the -j option for gcc to compile on several cores?
09:15<etenil>otherwise i need to edit each makefile -_-
09:15<tuxcrafter>twb: lspci >
09:16<twb>etenil: uh, "make -j4 install"
09:16<twb>etenil: you pass it on the command line
09:16<twb>etenil: but in .devscripts you can put DEBUILD_DPKG_BUILDPACKAGE_OPTS=-j for debuild
09:16<etenil>can it be that simple?

10:24-!-foolano [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
10:24<mercutio22>pipe: yeah, and I suppose when installing from the repositories, it has been previously tested by several people right?

10:25<witte>mercutio22: that is the idea ;)

10:26<twb>witte: strictly speaking, I think stable also allows insanely critical bugfixes
10:26<mercutio22>abrotman: yeah, that might have been the case. Now, I only compile in case there is no hope of getting a repository package

10:57<Aprogas>Apparently ctrl+a and remove in the auto removable category in synaptic wasn't very smart.
10:57<pipe>I should find out the difference between aptitude and apt-get some day
10:57<witte>!why aptitude
10:57<dpkg>aptitude has more advanced conflict/dependency resolution and will often be able to come up with a solution where apt-get just gives up. It has advanced search capabilities (see <aptitude search>). Like apt-get, it can also remove or purge one package at the same time as installing others all from the command line or at the Y/n/q/? prompt using its interactive resolver, making it much easier to recover from broken dependencies.
10:57<abrotman>!tell pipe about why aptitude
10:57<Aprogas>aptitude is "smarter"
10:57<pipe>Because apt-get is about 197 times faster on slow machines
10:57<rmann>I am an absolute beginner so I need exact writing. Right now it says debian: #

11:13<sravan>Hi, I have tried installing adobe flash player in debian from the adobe site and on installing it "dpkg -i install_flash_player_10.deb"
11:14-!-flower [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
11:14<sravan>My dpkg got screwed and no other package is getting installed
11:14<rmann>Its still progressing but is giving me a lot of buffer i/o errors on device hda
11:14<witte>sravan: define screwed (error message)
11:14<TCW>rmann, the thing I wanted to say there was... you do not need X (the basic thing Gnome / KDE / XFCE / Fvwm / etc. all need) to use / work on a GNU/Linux system
11:14<abrotman>sravan: that's because that package isn't for debian
11:15<ml|>sravan: flash from adobe is non-free and dmm
11:15<abrotman>!tell sravan about bpo
11:15<abrotman>sravan: put the error in a pastebin
11:15<TCW>sravan, you know about debian-multimedia?
11:16<TCW>abrotman, bpo? Not rather dmo? :)
11:16<abrotman>no, has flash

11:17<TCW>wow :)
11:17<abrotman>ml|: there is no adobe-flash in lenny, so you get it from

11:17<sravan>I googled and found out a solution and it said me to remove "/var/lib/dpkg/info/flashplayer.prem"
11:17<ml|>abrotman: ok, did not know that
11:17<sravan>I did it and then reinstalled it again
11:17<abrotman>sravan: that package is *not* for debian
11:19<ml|>sravan: for next time, check the repos before downloading and installing things
11:20<abrotman>it's not in the repo anyways ..
11:20<abrotman>sravan: which problem do you need help with now ?
11:20<sravan>so now , even for example , if i try installing "sudo apt-get install wine" , I get the following error :
11:21<sravan>dpkg is not installing the actual package and in between getting corrupted
11:21<dpkg>sravan: You are person #1 to send an unparseable request

11:24<rmann>Why is it installing a 'server'
11:24<sravan>abrotman, : yeah, that's thew cmplete output
11:24<abrotman>sravan: why are you asking #debian about ubuntu /.
11:24<sravan>abrotman, : it's not getting terminated
11:24<TCW>rmann, because you said "file server" during install?
11:24<sravan>it keeps on continuing forever

11:25<witte>sravan: so it is still installing. Have patience
11:25<rmann>No I didn't have it checked
11:25<abrotman>rmann: i believe installing gnome pulls in samba so you can have file shares to windows machines if you want
11:25<TCW>rmann, ah... maybe a Desktop Environment did recommend it
11:25<abrotman>sravan: if you need help with ubuntu, please go to #ubuntu on
11:25<rmann>I went ahead anyway
11:25<TCW>rmann, just ignore the questions and use the defaults
11:26<rmann>Still installing

13:52<pipe>you mean that if you run a CPU hogging program, you will experience the same mouse-issues?
13:53<pipe>even if you don't do any io
13:53<Lethalman>pipe, I'm not sure of this
13:53-!-foolanook is now known as foolano
13:53<Lethalman>but I'm sure it mostly happens when accessing disks
13:53<Lethalman>like updatedb
13:53<Lethalman>it also happens with dpkg
13:53<Lethalman>when loading all .list files
13:53<Lethalman>it's not about them being slow, I don't care, it's about blocking everything else

13:54<Lethalman>for my hard drive
13:55<Lethalman>I don't get it, I used to use hdparm to enable dma but that's not the case with this hd... I need sdparm but what to tweak?
13:55*Lethalman is ignorant here
13:55<ml|>is the drive ok, besides for this issue?
13:55<pipe>have you checked dmesg for any errors or timeouts?
13:55<Lethalman>ml|, yes
13:56<Lethalman>pipe, no problems there
13:56<sney`>oh, SATA drives can't run in pio I don't think

14:00<pipe>Lethalman: Is there anything unusual with this machine, is it a very slow CPU or something?
14:00<Lethalman>pipe, I said amd64 2.4ghz and 512mb ram
14:00<Lethalman>everything works correctly
14:00<pipe>Ah, missed that
14:00<pipe>So hm
14:00<Lethalman>it's just when doing I/O I think
14:00<pipe>512 isn't much these days
14:01<Lethalman>pipe, I know but it always (and still) used to work
14:01<Lethalman>it's not the ram :)
14:01<sney`>should still be fine for using X and grepping something
14:01<sney`>we aren't vista :P
14:01<pipe>Not when using gnome and iceweasel
14:01<pipe>If you've been browsing around a bit etc
14:01<pipe>Because if it's starting to swap, then I suppose you'd see these issues

14:02<sney`>ram is cheap
14:02<pipe>Sometimes it's difficult to upgrade :|
14:03<diggy>is your hdd connected to master connector on mb?
14:03<icebrain>if it's like my Desktop, it's terribly difficult: it only uses DDR1 :P
14:03<pipe>Had to search hard to get 8GB that suits this machine
14:03<Lethalman>I don't know sincerely
14:03<ml|>try using just a light wm and see if this happens also with it?
14:04<Lethalman>ml|, i usually use awesome when opening big things
14:04<Lethalman>but gnome is usually ok, except when working with I/O
14:04<Lethalman>I think the problem is with swapping then
14:05<Lethalman>reading from files in ram and back again
14:05<ml|>Lethalman: and samething happens with awesome?
14:05<Lethalman>ml|, when grepping you mean? I'll try
14:05<diggy>and when hdd and cdrom connected to same cable then this can cause some slowness...
14:05<ml|>Lethalman: but stop gnome if you are running it to test
14:06<Lethalman>ml|, unfortunately I'm running grep in a gnome terminal
14:06<Lethalman>can't stop it now :)
14:06<ml|>Lethalman: ok, but you see what I'm getting at
14:06<pipe>diggy: I think he said it was sata
14:07<Lethalman>ml|, not really

14:08<Lethalman>too many things are connected each other these days
14:08<ml|>Lethalman: if it happens with awesome then it might be some swap issue like suggested above, is what I mean
14:08<pipe>I've used dwm on this laptop for quite some time now

14:35<Lethalman>lwithers, so you have no need of .install
14:35<Lethalman>themill, didn't know about dh sorry
14:36<themill>Lethalman: debhelper has changed a lot from version 5 (which is what it sounds like you are familiar with) to version 7 which lwithers is using.

16:35<lwithers>ok, building a package which contains both a shared library and an executable linked against that shared library, I'm getting an error from dpkg-shlibdeps
16:36<lwithers>it says it can't find (which is the library's soname); exists in debian/tmp/usr/lib however
16:36-!-swo [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
16:37<lwithers>I presume I'm not supposed to create a symlink, since it seems ldconfig should be managing that, but how do I tell dpkg-shlibdeps to look in the right place?

16:52<lwithers>perhaps a different question -- should I be creating a package which has both a shared library and executables in it? or should I perhaps split the executables out into a -bin ?
16:53<Lethalman>lwithers, split is better
16:53<Lethalman>package, libpackage
16:54<Lethalman>but if the library is only supposed to be used with that package... it's useless
16:54<lwithers>no, there's a C library (which is the main thing) and a couple of utils that link against the C library in the same upstream package
16:54<lwithers>so I guess no issue putting the utils into their own .deb

18:17<Wilduck>I'm sorry I'm such a waste of time abrotman
18:17<abrotman>if #ubuntu can't help you, perhaps try ##linux on freenode
18:17<pipe>I already answered, but you kept going
18:17<themill>Wilduck: then I can't see how any config on your debian box could stop you using the printer. Did you have to type in the IP address for CUPS or did CUPS just find the printer automagically
18:17<Wilduck>I'll get out of your hair
18:17<Wilduck>Thank you pipe
18:18<Wilduck>I guess abrotman just got me defensive

22:43<Coburn|MacBook>Hi all
22:43<edhunter>hi Coburn|MacBook
22:44<Coburn|MacBook>I'm having troubles with setting up pure-ftpd in debian. I know I possibly will get told to go away since it's not directly related to debian, but here goes
22:44<Coburn|MacBook>I've done apt-get install pure-ftpd
22:45<Coburn|MacBook>And it's installed the server.
22:45<Coburn|MacBook>I've configured it, added users, put it in standalone mode and now it's not accepting connections.
22:45<Coburn|MacBook>ftp localhost works fine, I can connect
22:46<Coburn|MacBook>but if I ftp to the IP address of the server (10.x.x.100)
22:46<Coburn|MacBook>it doesn't work

22:59<Coburn|MacBook>Yeah, I think it's causing DNS problems.
22:59<Coburn|MacBook>Looking at the init.d script for it.
22:59<dr|z3d>I was using pureftp the other day.. it seems likely it uses passive port allocations, which means just opening port 21 on your firewall might not be sufficient; I needed to disable the firewall to see successful access.
22:59<Coburn|MacBook>This debian box has no firewall

23:18<Coburn|MacBook>kop: I have my client set on auto.
23:18<Coburn|MacBook>kop: I'll use vsftpd instead, tried and tested

23:19<Coburn|MacBook>Meh, aready did the apt-get --purge remove pure-ftpd

23:19<Coburn|MacBook>Firewall on my Mac is disabled
23:19<Coburn|MacBook>Firewall: Off
23:19<kop>Coburn|MacBook: You can use a command-line ftp client and check against something on the web.
23:20<kop>Coburn|MacBook: Maybe the client only does one sort?
23:20<Coburn|MacBook>I have used ftp in Mac terminal
23:20<Coburn|MacBook>Yeah, could be
23:20<kop>Coburn|MacBook: "passive" usually toggles.
23:20<kop>Coburn|MacBook: Anyhow, no reason your server should not support both (in the general case).

23:25<Coburn|MacBook>Linux is like a drug. Once you use it, you'll start using it for everything
23:25<kop>Coburn|MacBook: That's because it's a true "platform". You _can_ use it for everything. :-)
23:26<Coburn|MacBook>Windows is like sex; do it wrong and you get crippled and hacked until your computer screams "Put Debian on meeeeee"
23:26<kop>Coburn|MacBook: And the investment in knowledge is persistant; a sysadm from 1972 would still feel comfortable today.
23:26<kop>Coburn|MacBook: (Just don't forget to leave comments in your config files so you remember _why_ you did something.)
23:27<Coburn|MacBook>Yeah, indeed, Linux may have Unix roots or parts "borrowed" from Unix, but you can do stuff in linux that will work in Unix and vice versa
23:28<Coburn|MacBook>kop: Debian is my weapon of choice, however, I think that many people see Debian has a OS for hardcore people... If Debian had a installer like Windows's installer, it would be sweeter and easy to install
23:29<kop>Coburn|MacBook: It's basically the same thing (code excepted). The analysts separete Linux out into it's own category only to make Microsoft look better. Otherwise they'd be in last place. And most of the analysts make their money supporting MS Windows in some way.

23:53<kop>simonrvn: I'll have to pay attention again someday. (Yeah, I scripted my own with balsa and dropping stuff into particular mailboxes to add/remove from the spam set.) It just seems like there should be some common approach so any mail client works with any filter.
