03:22<cfrabel>Hi all
03:23<cfrabel>I am unable to stop (using ^C) a script containing a sleep instruction. How to do?
03:24<edhunter>cfrabel: you could ps aux | grep "script name" find the PID and use kill -9 PID to kill it
03:25<jm_>what's in the script?

03:29<cfrabel>i connect with ssh
03:30<cfrabel>and only a such process is unkillable (a process containing a sleep)

03:50<shiznatix>Hello. I am trying to use MSN on my Lenny install but have some protocol problems. I used to use Pidgin but then MSN upgraded something and the version of Pidgin on Lenny was no good anymore so I switched to Emesene but now I am getting another protocol error. Is there any way I can get MSN to work on Debian?
03:51<twb>shiznatix: do you have volatile.d.o enabled?
03:51<jm_>or backports?
03:51<shiznatix>twb, I don't know what that means so I am going to guess, no I don't
03:51<twb>jm_: I mentioned vdo because I recalled something about purple being in there
03:51<twb>!tell shiznatix about volatile
03:51<shiznatix>jm_, I have backports enabled yes
03:51<dr|z3d>shiznatix: aptitude install amsn
03:52<jm_>this is what dpkg says: MSN support broken in Lenny (BTS #559982), use a backport.
03:52<jm_>(for pidgin)
03:52<twb>jm_: ah. How did you find it so fast?
03:52<twb>jm_: just bts show src:purple?
03:52<jm_>twb: just /msg dpkg pidgin ;)
03:52<ml|>dpkg: pidgin bpo
03:52<dpkg>The package for <Pidgin> on (as of 2.6.2-1~bpo50+2) has voice and video disabled, as the libraries for these functions are not available in lenny. See
03:52<ml|>if that matters
03:52<dr|z3d>judd: versions amsn
03:53<judd>dr|z3d: amsn -- etch: 0.95+dfsg2-0.3 lenny: 0.97.2~debian-1 sid: 0.98.1-1 squeeze: 0.98.1-1
03:53-!-mavromatis [~mavromati@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
03:53<shiznatix>jm_, If I have the backports enabled how do I explicitaly install something from it? I just used it to install something a while ago, maybe flash plugin but I don't recall
03:53<jm_>shiznatix: it's explained on their web page
03:53<jm_>just add -t lenny-backports
03:54<dr|z3d>shiznatix: If you haven't looked at amsn, perhaps you should.. it's probably the closest to a linux port of msn as you're likely to see..
03:54-!-simNIX [] has quit [Quit: Ik ga weg]
03:54<twb>Now that I look at vdo, I can see it doesn't contain any protocol fix (except ICQ) for pidgin
03:54-!-Anomaly [] has joined #debian
03:55<shiznatix>dr|z3d, roger that. I would like to use Pidgin though since I use AIM, gChat, and MSN at the same time. AIM for my American friends, MSN for the Europeans, and gChat for the kids who hate AIM and MSN

03:56<dr|z3d>shiznatix: Looked at empathy. Another possible, if you need multi-protocol.
03:56*dr|z3d retrofits a "?"
03:56<ml|>shiznatix: just tell them all to use irc ;)
03:56<shiznatix>ml|, in a perfect world :)
03:57<twb>Or netnews
03:57-!-[fFf] [] has joined #debian
03:57<shiznatix>jm_, for the backports, do I do the preferences thing described on this page at the bottom:
03:57<jm_>shiznatix: up to you really
03:58<shiznatix>jm_, I am not really sure what I am doing though, would that work if I did the preferences thing?
03:58<jm_>shiznatix: just use -t then
03:59<cfrabel>edhunter, my question is: why its impossible to "normally" kill such a process
03:59-!-Meise [] has joined #debian
03:59<twb>cfrabel: because you don't have job control
03:59<shiznatix>jm_, such as: apt-get upgrade -t pidgin?
04:00<twb>shiznatix: -t takes a target release, such as "lenny"
04:00<jm_>shiznatix: no, did you read the instructions page? it has exact command
04:00<jm_>apt* -t lenny-backports install pidgin
04:00<edhunter>cfrabel: no clue. dont remember not being able to ^C a process that sleeps..
04:01<twb>edhunter: because he's on a serial line, he probably lacks job control
04:01<shiznatix>jm_, arg sorry, skipped over that section thinking it was the setup backports part
04:01<twb>edhunter: it may also simply be that the app is intercepting and discarding the ^C instead of letting it propagate to the (job control-enabled) shell.
04:02<jm_>I told him all that but he failed to provide more info
04:02<shiznatix>ok I will get this working with backports

04:02<shiznatix>thanks for the help
04:02-!-shiznatix [~shiznatix@] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
04:03<edhunter>twb: yes thought of the second possibility (ignoring ^C) but from his description i understood that its a simple script by him. unfortunately i know nothing when it comes to serial lines and embedded devices so thx for the info
04:04<cfrabel>edhunter, ok, i understand
04:05<kaziem>I exported / with nfs
04:05<kaziem>and mounted it with the client

05:39<rex>where can i find the security risks of using webmin
05:40<dpkg>well, webmin is a lame web-based interface for unsafe system administration for Unix. Check it out at Remember, dondelelcaro *hates* webmin. "i'd rather sit on the floor shoving table knives into live electrical outlets than run webmin on an exposed server." See about the removal. Don't use their .debs, they are of extremely poor quality.
05:41<rex>right, cute, but really, security flaws, what am i in for
05:42<koollman>rex: simply enough, someone might access to webmin, and get root access to everything
05:43<rex>so they would still have to brute force or know my root pass?
05:43-!-narcan_ is now known as narcan
05:43<koollman>or depending of the webmin version, use a known exploit to go through the login page
05:43<twb>rex: unless there's a bug in webmin
05:44<twb>What am I saying? Webmin is FULL of bugs. I mean unless there's a specific exploit.
05:44<rex>i gust what i am mainly thinkin, just running webmin, are there known ways to get enough access to my system to install and run other things without my knowledge?
05:45<rex>or is it only a potential of my sites getting 'hacked'
05:46<jm_>Gremnon: that's for old xulrunner stuff
05:47<Gremnon>jm_, maybe so, but frostwire for squeeze/testing insists on having it installed
05:47<koollman>rex: there are ways to access all of your system, with no exceptions
05:47<Gremnon>unless there's a workwaround to force it to use whatever replaced it

05:48-!-crazyb0y [] has joined #debian
05:48<koollman>if you really want to use webmin, you could, as a first security point, add more limits to the access by using a different auth system and restrict to some known valid IP addresses

05:58<twb>hachi: are you using a dm, xinit, or something else?

05:58<twb>e.g. "xinit :2"
05:59<hachi>but I need to specify a different config file
05:59<twb>hachi: why?
05:59<hachi>-config causes X to drop its privs
05:59<dr|z3d>rex: see my comment above.
05:59<hachi>because I'm generating the config file
05:59<twb>hachi: that doesn't make any sense

06:00<hachi>I can't do like the xinput layer and use dbus to insert video devices (like the input devices can do)
06:01<hachi>so I have to build a config file that has the right framebuffer device listed
06:01<twb>hachi: so you have a single machine and you want to have two sets of KVM controlling two separate X displays?

06:02<twb>hachi: does each display run as a different user?
06:02<rex>so when i have connections from my ip to some ip on port 65xxx, and i know its mail related, that means what? mail is running on 65xxx on the receiving server?
06:02<twb>hachi: try putting "X :0 -config foo & X :1 -config bar & wait" in ~/.xserverrc ?
06:02<hachi>doesn't really matter to me, I was going to do it as the same user unless some xauth constraint stops me
06:03<twb>hachi: that's just a complete guess -- I've only ever put a single X server in ~/.xserverrc
06:03-!-liquidat [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
06:03<hachi>er, okay... part of my question got missed
06:03<hachi>I already have the invocation
06:03-!-Worf_ [] has joined #debian
06:03<hachi>the problem is if I supply the -config arg to X, it drops privs
06:03<hachi>so then it doesn't run as root, can't open logfiles
06:04<hachi>I can't supply a different logfile unless I am root

06:04<Gremnon>jm_ - it worked, thanks. Never knew about debain multimedia before then. Learn something new every day
06:04<hachi>that seems like something debian maintainers might want to not force me to do

08:37<jm_>well I didn't check start-stop-daemon source code, but looking at strace output it's checking /proc/<pid>/exe symlink (the <pid> comes from the pid file) and compares the --exec argument with it, if it doesn't match it means process is not running yet so it starts a new one (in your previous command it never matched)
08:37<jm_>but for the new command it matches
08:38<kaziem>is there any way to reduce the time in bootup when NFS tries to mount the exports when they're not available?
08:38<GNU-Maniac>thank you very much jm_

09:03<dpkg>udev has the ability to statically rename Ethernet cards based on MAC address since version 0.090. The addresses are configured in /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules (Lenny, Squeeze) or /etc/udev/rules.d/z25_persistent-net.rules (Etch). If you want the mappings to change, edit the respective file. To apply changes: "udevadm trigger" ("udevtrigger" on Etch) or reload the relevant driver module. See also <forcedeth mac>, <udev>.

11:59<jspiros>if i have uvesafb mode_option=1920x1080-32 in my /etc/modules, when the module is loaded it at least goes to 1400x1050. if I have the same, but with radeonfb instead of uvesafb, it doesn't change at all when rebooting. that is, it's a standard VGA console.

13:08<Gremnon>quickie - if a gtk theme (controls, specifically) is installed by package, but you don't know which package, what's the quickest way to find out, short of removing them all and going through each of them by hand?
13:08-!-Celtiore [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
13:08<jspiros>Gremnon: if you know what file causes that theme to show up, you can search for it with dpkg -S
13:09<jspiros>Gremnon: i.e., dpkg -S foobar will list me packages that are currently installed and contain a file with "foobar" in the name
13:09<Gremnon>well, that begs the question of finding out which file provides the two controls themes I'm after... namely, QT and QTCurve
13:10<jspiros>er, gtk2-engines-qtcurve
13:11<jspiros>doing "dpkg -S qtcurve" probably would've turned that up, but I just Googled
13:11<vvas>or "apt-cache search qtcurve" is a bit more direct
13:12-!-doomcup_ [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
13:12<jspiros>vvas: that assumes that the package name will match the filename, and I'm assuming that there will be SOME file with the name "qtcurve" in the package
13:12<jspiros>vvas: unless apt-cache search searches the contents of packages, which would be neat :)

13:32<jspiros>linux123: the Debian system seems to be working properly, so if you can't resolve hostnames check the router
13:32<Titan8990>N30, no your not
13:32<linux123>jspiros: i tried a different router, and i still wasn't able to connect
13:32<edhunter>N30: you for sure are not. it has over 100 ppl. it is on freenode not oftc like debian. u need to connect to
13:32<jspiros>linux123: you need to make sure that the router is configured properly
13:33<Titan8990>N30, /connect; /join #backtrack-linux
13:33<jspiros>linux123: if it's a home router, like a Linksys or Netgear thing, you need to make sure that it has DNS servers configured properly
13:33<Titan8990>N30, when you use /join, you have to do it in a freenode/tab/window or w/e it is in oyur client
13:33<Gremnon>N30, Titan8990's instructions are correct, but make sure you type the /join #backtrack-linux in the dialog for freenode, not the debian one
13:33<Gremnon>... and beaten to it again
13:33<jspiros>linux123: this is a bit beyond Debian, though, so I can't really help
13:33<Titan8990>Gremnon, its ok, your explination was better :p
13:34<Titan8990>!override dns
13:34<dpkg>To instruct dhclient to use your specified nameserver rather than the one given to you by your DHCP server, echo "supersede domain-name-servers a.b.c.d, e.f.g.h;" >> /etc/dhcp3/dhclient.conf, or see man 5 dhclient.conf for more information. Instead of supersede, you can also use "prepend" or "append" to add nameservers.
13:34<N30>and what is freenode....sry im TOTALY new here so...
13:34<linux123>jspiros: thats allright, you gave me an idea
13:34<Titan8990>linux123, override the DNS to a public DNS server such as google's or;
13:34<linux123>jspiros: thanks allot for your help :D
13:34<azeem>N30: so read up a bit
13:34<jspiros>linux123: sure :)
13:35<Titan8990>N30, freenode is a server
13:35<Titan8990>N30, thats hosts IRC chat
13:35<Gremnon>and #debian is on a different server to that
13:35<Titan8990>Gremnon, well... kind of
13:35<Titan8990>the official channel is
13:35<Gremnon>it's close enough, no?
13:35<edhunter>life would be so much easier if the ubuntu and bt ppl just changed default channels :)
13:35<Titan8990>but #debian on freenode is much more popular
13:35<linux123>Titan8990: where should i override my DNS ?
13:36<Titan8990>!override dns

13:36<Gremnon>essentially though, you just have to ask your IRC application to use the Freenode server to /join #backtrack-linux, instead of the Debian one
13:36<pj>titan8990: I'm a kind of newbie, I'm not sure what command line should I use. apt-get update linux-image.2.....deb is correct ?

13:39<N30>What is freenode...pls explain it seems im too stupid for that^^

13:40<edhunter>N30: ctrl + T this will open a new server window. type there /server press enter it will connect to freenode
13:40<pj>Titan8990: unfortunatly the console output is in french, is there a simple way to get english output
13:40<Gremnon>think of it this way - #debian is like a room in one building, and #backtrack-linux is a room in a different building. You have to use the right building to get the correct room

13:40<edhunter>pj: LANG=C before the command should do it
13:40<edhunter>too late ;)
13:40-!-Titan8990 [] has joined #debian
13:40<Titan8990>edhunter, sorry, your right
13:41<Titan8990>and /server changes servers, not connect to a new one
13:41<Titan8990>N30, just use the GUI...
13:41<edhunter>Titan8990: yep. i told him to use ctrl + T for a new server window (and the rest to connect)
13:41<Titan8990>but IMO, if you can't figure out how to use IRC, you shouldn't be using a linux distro oriented toward professional penetration testers
13:41<Gremnon>to be fair, I doubt a lot of people have ever used IRC before using Linux
13:42<N30>it says it could´t connect my host^^
13:42<fred1>Titan8990, rather than relying on some random public server to provide resolver service, it might be more reliable to install and run bind locally confgured as caching resolver only
13:42<pj>Titan8990: what do u think of this ? The "upgrade" command is deprecated; use "safe-upgrade" instead.
13:42<Titan8990>Gremnon, right... and BT preaches very often about how it should not be used by new linux users, they hate supporting them and they often end up banned form the community
13:42<Titan8990>pj, ignore it and pastebin the results
13:43<Titan8990>fred1, random public DNS servers are typically better than your ISP, especially if your ISP redirects failed DNS queries to advertisers
13:43<Gremnon>see, this is where support forums often help more - slower, but so long as someone reads them, just as useful
13:43<azeem>N30: you're already connected

13:43<edhunter>Gremnon: i must disagree. i know many ppl my age that used irc for hours a few years back and all in windows ;)
13:44<azeem>N30: please get help elsewhere, this is a Debian support channel
13:44<Gremnon>edhunter, maybe I'm thinking too much like myself then, never touched IRC before I started out with an old Fedora install. Which I didn't get along with.
13:44<ravenbird>N30: I wish you would RTFM.
13:45<edhunter>Gremnon: well of course all those ppl didnt use freenode/oftc ;)
13:45<fred1>Titan8990, and running ones one local resolver, which does *not* forward to an upstream ISP but instead has its own root-servers cache is even more reliable

15:19<kpoorman>How can I eradicate all references to old repos on my box?
15:20<kpoorman>I took the repo's out of my sources.list file
15:20<kpoorman>but apt is still finding the older versions of the package
15:20<ml|>did you aptitude update after?
15:20-!-xNetoXMartinsx [~neto@] has quit [Quit: Saindo]
15:21<kpoorman>ml|: yes I did.

15:22-!-doomcup [] has joined #debian
15:22<kpoorman>so I created a local mirror
15:22<rex>does deb support lighttpd ? will i be able to ask about it in here
15:22<ml|>anyhting in /etc/apt/
15:22<kpoorman>and put my own backported packages in it
15:22<kpoorman>and now my client box can't see the new backported version (5.2.12) of php5
15:23<themill>kpoorman: the output of "apt-cache policy; apt-cache policy php5" would be handy.
15:24<vvas>kpoorman: also check sources.list.d in case there's some stray file left there
15:24<ml|>anyhting in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ I meant
15:25<kpoorman>nothing there

15:25<dpkg>kpoorman: Please pastebin the contents of your /etc/apt/sources.list and /etc/apt/sources.list.d/*.list. The easiest way to do this is to pastebin the output of: find /etc/apt/ -name '*.list' -printf "\n%p:\n" -exec cat {} \;

15:31<themill>yeah, that's fine. I understand now... ;)
15:32<themill>Have you checked whether your apt-mirror repo you have there contains this package?
15:32<kpoorman>themill: i added it with

15:36<kpoorman>themill: yes and no. I am trying to upgrade my local boxes from my local repo to version 5.2.12 of php5. However my client boxes can't seem to forget about php5.2.5
15:36<gdb>ie; if you have 5.2.12 somewhere, you can't also have 5.2.12 somewhere else
15:36<gdb>one of them has to change versions

15:37-!-seanius [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
15:38<themill>kpoorman: so that's sort of the opposite to what we've been looking at so far. We need to see the output of "apt-cache policy php5" from one of the boxes that is only wanting to install 5.2.5 instead of 5.2.12.
15:38<kpoorman>themill: thats what I gave you
15:39<themill>kpoorman: well "aptitude install php5" on that box will install 5.2.12. That's what that output says.

15:40<gdb>unmet dependancies?
15:40<gdb>did you build this package yourself or get it from somewhere else?
15:40<kpoorman>I built it myself.
15:40<themill>ahh... now we're getting somewhere... that's an entirely different problem to what you've been talking about. Can you pastebin the entire output of your aptitude run?
15:41-!-seanius [] has joined #debian
15:41<kpoorman>it's an unmet dependency on libapache2-mod-php5 which is in the repo as 5.2.12 but only showing as 5.2.3
15:41<themill>kpoorman: you only put php5_....deb into the repo rather than all the packages that it made. There will be a pile of .debs made from your backport.
15:42<kpoorman>themill: I totally put the libapache2-mod-php5 debs in the repo
15:42<gdb>Did you rebult the Packages file?
15:42<gdb>I think that's what it's called...
15:43<themill>kpoorman: did you add them with reprepro or just copy in the .debs?
15:43<gdb>ie; just copying there doesn't work -- did you set up the repo files again after putting them there?
15:43<kpoorman>gdb: reprepro does it when the package is added
15:43<gdb>ah okay good
15:43<kpoorman>and I used reprepro to add the deb
15:43<gdb>Just brainstormin'!
15:43<kpoorman>(reprepro -Vb /var/www/apt-mirror includedeb lenny /path/to/file)
15:43<themill>kpoorman: you can add the .changes file which will add all of them at once.
15:44<kpoorman>root@ci01:/var/www/apt-mirror# reprepro list lenny libapache2-mod-php5
15:44<kpoorman>lenny|main|amd64: libapache2-mod-php5 5.2.12.dfsg.1-2
15:44<themill>(reprepro -Vb $BASE include lenny $foo.changes)
15:44<kpoorman>themill: yeah, I added the debs, but I did include all of them
15:44<kpoorman>themill: as you can see from the output above
15:45<kpoorman>which was run on the repo box
15:45<kpoorman>it's like the client box can't let go of the old version of libapache2-mod-php5
15:45-!-doomcup_ [] has joined #debian
15:46<kpoorman>now i'm getting No candidate version found for libapache2-mod-php5

15:49<peamon>i have a question
15:50<kpoorman>themill: I appologize for exceeding the limit.
15:50<peamon>does anyone know WordBiz ?
15:50<kpoorman>what else can I check? How can I blow away the client boxes understanding of what packages are available ?
15:50<themill>kpoorman: I presume that the client box is in fact amd64. (just checking!)
15:51<peamon>i just upgrade my debian etch to squezze and WordBiz doesn't work anymore (he cannot connect to the server)
15:51<kpoorman>themill: oh screw me.
15:51<gdb>comment out everything in /etc/apt/sources.list and /etc/apt/sources.list.d/*.list and run aptitude update (I don't think this will help, but that will effectively delete your system's memory of any repositories)

15:52<themill>peamon: ^^ at a wild guess
15:53<gdb>I read a post on the planet about that.
15:53<vvas>yeah, it took me a while to figure out why azureus had suddenly stopped working one day in December...
15:53<peamon>mase: server out of service or problem to connect to internet but under windows it works so server is not out of servive
15:54<kpoorman>themill: thanks! do you know how to pdebuild a backport ? so I can make a i386 on an amd64 box
15:55-!-MORPHEUS [] has joined #debian
15:55<themill>kpoorman: you can have an i386 chroot on an amd64 box so it's fairly easy to do it that way around.
15:55<vvas>indeed, i was about to suggest the same
15:55<themill>kpoorman: debootstrap takes an --arch paramter.
15:56<vvas>debootstrap + schroot make it very easy to set up and use
15:56<gdb>peamon: You need to add this to the invokation of your Java application:
15:56<peamon>dpkg: ok thanks a lot
15:56<dpkg>peamon: i don't know
15:57<vvas>actually i have it the other way round than most people: a 64-bit processor, a 64-bit kernel with a 32-bit userland, and a 64-bit chroot
15:57<mase>:D dpkg is a bot
15:57<peamon>gbd : thanks too...
15:58<kpoorman>themill: I've done it with another package I created from scratch

16:00<peamon>gdb: my problem is solve :) effectivlly comming from what dpkg says ipv6 and Java ...
16:01<themill>kpoorman: no harder at all, really. BTW you might like to add "~iconnect" or similar to the end of your version strings with a changelog entry to say that the package was rebuilt as a backport. It will make it easier to see what has gone on and easier to upgrade to squeeze later on should squeeze have that exact same version of php5.
16:01<themill>kpoorman: See the way packages on are presented for examples of what I mean.

17:39<K0JIbKA1>Hi, all!
17:39<mains>what is the differance in i486 i386
17:40<miguel000>i suppose 486 supports some additional instructions
17:40<dpkg>it has been said that i386 is the designation for the "common ordinary garden-variety PC" architecture. Runs on everything from the 80386SX (woody) or 80486SX (sarge) and up. If you don't know what arch you want, you want this one.
17:40<babilen>mains: --> section "Differences between the 386 and 486"
17:42<miguel000>what can be the reason that no videos work , despite codecs
17:42<mains>my processer is intel p4 3.06 and motherboad d101ggc but graphics problem when i install i386 linux but i486 works fine why

17:45<miguel000>babilen, : the very strange thing is, that it USED to work before. and i do not really remember changing anything. im using the mplayer frim the debian-multimedia reporistory. how do i check the version of debian again?

The mode will be named in hex, something like 0x305. Edit /boot/grub/menu.lst and find the line that starts with "# kopt=" and add "vga=0x305" (substituting your chosen mode), then run "update-grub" and reboot.

21:40<sney`>it's probably an iwconfig option

21:41<Wireless>am i to assume the tx power is the transmit power ?
21:42<sney`>yes that's it

22:32<cabbie>hello technocp
22:33<technocp>hi Elite_ I am using a program using wine which is working perfectly but I get some problems when I am printing. I am not sure if it is a problem given by Ubntu, wine or my vesa driver. I am using Vesa Driver because with my intel driver the speed of program i am running is very slow. to this I found that xorg is eating most of the processor and after googling I found we can resolve it by using vesa driver. I definitely got it right and now the speed i
22:33<technocp>ssue is resolved. but the thing is that I am not able to increase the screen resolution and the printing problem as I said earlier

22:35<odla>does debian-backports have an irc channel?
22:35<technocp>not really
