00:03<sney>oh, that's why ite raid is so familiar. it's one of those PATA raid controllers.
00:04<twb>sney: fakeraid?
00:04<dr|z3d>Not scsi raid..
00:04<sney>it was commonly bundled with motherboards
00:04-!-jpablo [~chatzilla@] has quit [Quit: ChatZilla 0.9.86 [Firefox 3.5.8/20100214235838]]
00:05<emkuf>I just use the card to add more drives and stay away from its raid function
00:06<sney>some googling suggests there's an official-ish kernel patch to make it work, from the -ac tre
00:06<sney>tree, even
00:06-!-vsayer [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
00:07<sney>the ITE vendor driver is broken in 2.6.9 and newer.
00:07-!-vsayer [] has joined #debian
00:07<emkuf>ok just installed it and it hangs on startup
00:07-!-Zlasher [] has joined #debian
00:08<sney>without driver support it should just do nothing
00:08<emkuf>Yeah I just dont know how to install the drivers
00:09<sney>no I mean it shouldn't even hang, if it doesn't have driver support nothing would happen
00:09<dr|z3d><sney> some googling suggests there's an official-ish kernel patch to make it work, from the -ac tre
00:09<sney>are you sure the controller is good? have you used it recently?
00:09<dr|z3d>You need to patch your kernel, in other words, emkuf.
00:09<emkuf>worked in XP
00:10<dr|z3d>Installing drivers in Linux is not like installing in Windows..
00:10<emkuf>had to get the drivers for that too
00:10<emkuf>i figguered that
00:10<dr|z3d>So, the kernel is where you need to focus your attention.

00:10-!-vsayer [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
00:10<sney>I'm surprised debian doesn't have some m-a or other assist to get it working, ITE controllers are fairly common
00:11<emkuf>seeing as ite is on every motherboard =/
00:11<emkuf>ok so I need to be in the terminal right?
00:11<GeorgeDorn>I'm on debian. I used m-a to install nvidia.
00:12<emkuf>whats that?
00:12<GeorgeDorn>forget it

00:17<twb>gsimmons: mark_freq(0) worked
00:17<sney>emkuf, dr|z3d: more googling has shown that the ite 8212 IDE raid controller's driver is already in the kernel, as it821x.ko
00:17<emkuf>so debian should have it?
00:17<gsimmons>twb: Hooray!
00:17<sney>definitely has it
00:18<sney>emkuf: if you're experiencing a hang on boot it's a different problem. try editing the grub boot entry - take out the word 'quiet' and boot, see if it gives you more information
00:18<emkuf>cool so what do I do, cause I googles installing drivers for debian and I could not find what I needed
00:19<twb>At least, I *think* it worked. You can never be quite sure that an absence is a true negative :-)
00:21<emkuf>well I unplugged the card and started up fine, so the card is doing something
00:22<sney>emkuf: try it in a different pci slot
00:23<adb>take a look at dmesg | tail , in same time
00:23<sney>if he gets a boot hang, how is he going to look at dmesg
00:24<emkuf>no idea what that is
00:24<sney>taking quiet out of the boot options at least makes sense
00:24<sney>emkuf: dmesg is the system log, it tells you exactly what the system knows about what's plugged into it, among other things.
00:26<emkuf>nope it hangs at, Loading please wait

00:39<SmittyJensen>Anyone have experience with vmware? i have a game i need to run (maplestory) but was wondering if it'll work good or not.
00:39<twb>SmittyJensen: I wouldn't be surprised if that runs under wine.
00:40<SmittyJensen>it doesn't due to hackshield.
00:40<emkuf>Debian anger *smash!*
00:40<SmittyJensen>twb, you'll find a lot of these asian games use gameguard or hackshield.
00:40<gsimmons>notacow: There is no "21lenny3" anymore. Run apt-get update, then try your apt-get command again.
00:40<SmittyJensen>I was mainly wondering how good 3d performance is.
00:41<SmittyJensen>can i run something like guild wars under the new vmware on windows 7?
00:41<adb>SmittyJensen, ask #vmware on
00:41<SmittyJensen>ok. i wasn't aware they had an irc. thanks
00:44-!-razz91 [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]

01:11<twb>OK, this is fucked.
01:11<twb>I noticed some postinsts were running, and were missing in /var/lib/dpkg/info/.
01:11<twb>So I ran an "aptitude reinstall" on each installed package in turn.
01:12<twb>And then I noticed that dpkg-dev-el had *lost* a postinst it had previously. And then re-running "aptitude reinstall dpkg-dev-el" a second time, the postinst is back.

02:11<vhann>Hi, I want to wake-on-lan my Debian lenny server. ethtool reports it 'wakes on: g' and I set 'NETDOWN=no' in /etc/rc0.d/S90halt. The interface's LEDs are lit while the machine is off, but I can't get the machine to wol. Is there something I am missing?

02:19-!-alvarezp [] has joined #debian
02:19<Supaplex>vhann: is this onboard, or an expansion card?
02:20<vhann>Supaplex: I use the onboard interface (this is a P3 so wake-on-lan cable could have been an issue)
02:21<Supaplex>humm. I've had mixed success with wol. I haven't had to use it in a long time.

03:34<jm_>twb: yeah, it asks you IIRC, but there was also a bug in older version if you said N
03:34<zfra>jm_, dr|z3d: thanks. So GIYF, but google-chrome isn't? there was this /etc/cron.daily/google-chrome, ugly thing, already purged.
03:34<dpkg>methinks giyf is Google Is Your Friend.
03:35<jm_>zfra: I guess they'll sort out the problem someday
03:36<dr|z3d>zfra: Whilst you're here, you might consider aptitude over apt-get for future use.
03:36<dr|z3d>!why aptitude
03:36<dpkg>aptitude has more advanced conflict/dependency resolution and will often find a solution where apt-get gives up. It can be used from the command line like apt-get plus an interactive resolver makes it much easier to recover from broken dependencies. It has advanced search capabilities (see <aptitude search>).

10:20<dkr>did you do any updates in between the backup issue?
10:20<strahler>no. because ftpmaster is down
10:20<strahler>so, no chance fpr updates
10:20<babilen>!dbugs 561852
10:20<strahler>but I did this "backup"

10:21<strahler>yeah, I already found this bug report, but this does not solve my problem
10:21<babilen>strahler: Have a look at the bug report mentioned above
10:22<babilen>ah, ok. Why not?
10:22<strahler>LD_BIND_NOW=true apt-get update - didn't help
10:23<strahler>I downloaded apt from debian.package and reinstalled it... no chance
10:23<babilen>strahler: I just wanted to suggest that ...

10:30<ml|>strahler: that may have bugs, use lenny installer then move to testing if you want
10:31<strahler>any quick guides for a quick reinstall?
10:31<dpkg>The Debian Installation Guide for Lenny (5.0.4) can be found at . See also <errata> and <installer firmware>.
10:31<mika_video>if anyone wants to read my report of the kaffeine bug, see here:

10:31<strahler>ah. ok
10:32<ml|>maybe this will help...
10:32<strahler>and I'm running an encrypted system...
10:33<mika_video>Actually, reportbug seems to work in a little strange way - it did put the version number 0.8.7-1 but lenny has 0.8.7 .... hopefully whoever reads it will put it into correct place despite of this
10:34<themill>,versions kaffeine --release lenny
10:34<judd>kaffeine -- lenny: 0.8.7-1
10:34<themill>mika_video: ^^ as you can see, lenny has 0.8.7-1. The -1 indicates the debian revision of the package /msg dpkg debian revision
10:35<mika_video><judd>: in the about box of kaffeine it says 0.8.7 (using lenny)
10:35<themill>mika_video: kaffeine is version 0.8.7, the kaffeine *package* is version 0.8.7-1.
10:35<strahler>one question. I there a way to upgrade from stable to testing at the moment? Without ftpmaster?!
10:35<@Ganneff>ftpmaster has nothing to do with that

10:44<s4br3>panic! My gf will be home in an hour, and I said she could chat over msn, skype, and facebook on my desktop. But, I have never tried it myself, and don't know which clients are actively developed. Are both emesense and kopete still being developed? I would hate force her to switch client anytime soon... Which is the most up-to-date client for chatting on msn?
10:44<sico`sleep>i use amsn myself

10:45<Torsten_W>grr, wrong window
10:45<s4br3>what is amsn?
10:46<s4br3>not in any repository?
10:46<s4br3>yup it was!
10:47<www>it's a chatting software for msn
10:47<s4br3>Do you need a hotmail address to get started?
10:47<sico>msn/homtail account
10:47<sico>i believe it's *just* for msn
10:47<www>i used it before
10:47<www>but now i favorite pidgin

12:12<Cygnus>babilen: it is indeed a standard etch install

12:13<rpetre>babilen: so i understand that the "recommends" dependencies are more thoroughly looked at in lenny so i can leave that flag on without having too much bloat, yes? (at least in older releases, i found the recommends to be a bit too spammy for my taste)
12:13-!-maktie [] has joined #debian
12:14<Cygnus>babilen: ok wait a sec
12:14<babilen>rpetre: It is up to you ... Dvelopers are advised to recommend only those packages that fit the "recommends" definition and "suggest" the others .. There might always be packages that don't exactly adhere to that definition. You can file a bug against these if you feel that is the case ...
12:15<babilen>rpetre: If *you* know exactly what you want -> disable them ... but do you have any spacial reason for that?
12:15<rpetre>was there some sort of flamewar on the mailing lists regarding this,soi can read pros/cons?
12:16<babilen>I am sure that there was a debate - you'll have to search the archives yourself though
12:16<rpetre>i like small installs usually and have found that i need little stuff beside the depends
12:16<babilen>but recommends are well looked after now that they are the default ..
12:17<babilen>rpetre: Then don't install them. Nobody is forcing you! You can build the system the way *you* want. It is just that most recommends really make sense
12:17<babilen>rpetre: But they are not necessarily needed to run the program ..

17:21<EmleyMoor>Well, unless you want to do something like adjust partitions with a gparted live CD, it's tricky to know a good way forward
17:21<Cygnus>Is it safe to interrupt the process now and uninstall software?
17:21<ml|>but /home is a separate partition right?
17:22<Cygnus>moving stuff around is no problem
17:22<EmleyMoor>Uninstalling won't help
17:22<EmleyMoor>(well, not much)
17:22<Cygnus>why not /var/lib has 1.3 GB
17:23<ml|>not sure what you can move around from /
17:23<Cygnus>i think / will not be the problem but /var
17:24<ml|>/var uses it own partition as well?
17:24<EmleyMoor>/var/cache/apt is where most of the space is used in an upgrade

19:30<dr|z3d>Done any bandwidth tests?
19:30<ml|>maybe try a different mirror?
19:30<dr|z3d>Or, perhaps you might use synaptics "find best repository" feature..
19:31<dr|z3d>That will identify the fastest mirror for your location by testing the speed of all mirrors.

19:32<Glorf>you've always got 30kb/S ? or only in synaptic download

19:33<Cygnus>dr|z3d: you were saying about "find best repository" :)

Any ideas how can i solve this problem?

22:31<gord>arctix: ah they're usua;;y good, but check for distortion on the end of the connector, after a while they sometimes flex and dont put enough pressure on the contacts
22:32<gord>arctix: they sort of go slightly elliptical, if you see what I mean
22:33<gord>hi :)

22:34<wald0>abrotman: hum... it has worked very good for me
22:34<gord>wald0: I fid XFS similar perfrmance, less trouble
22:34<abrotman>okay, best of luck!
22:35<wald0>gord: why trouble ? i have do a few torture tests (forced reboot while the disk is fully working on misc things) and the filesystem recovered perfectly etc..

22:37<baloo>I wonder why older versions of the gnome weather applet had all the official weather stations, but the one in squeeze only has the most major ones available, and no obvious way to restore the old list from lenny
22:37<arctix>strange thing that my system started to crashing while it was working, started with appearing windows from my IM about impossibility of writing history, then i lost my both gnome bars and opened windows have hidden so i did hard reset and until now i can't figure out what's wrong
22:37<gord>wald0: i've had some server-grade crashes on reiser4, thats all, all cured with backup so didnt debug, but seemed to be more touble than it was worth. my application was large files frequently deleting so XFS maybe fits the scenario better for me

22:58<arctix> these 2 are errors given when grub loaded and i've chosen my kernel
22:58<gord>arctix: physical prpblems lead to corrupion, so it's important to rule out before it s worse, thats all. // OK wel you could use a live cd to grabmove any data you need hmm, i recall that error gave me problems a several stages of grub loading, sometimes seemed like a bios problem, stage 1.5, partway fhrough menu listing, etc, it varied a lot until i sorted it
22:59<arctix>check them if you can and ill try spare sata cable

23:02-!-evanbd [] has left #debian []
23:03<gord>arctix: also be very careful about recordning SATA mode (sata+pata) anc AHCI modes if yu dualboot windows, i think windows can be upset by wrong setting, if you reset bios be carefull to document current settings

23:08<evanbd>Ugh. I rebooted for no good reason, now it works. I thought I left Windows to avoid this :(
23:08<gord>booting from a live cd and mounting your partitions you can copy data to anither disk (not partition on same disk)
23:09<arctix>i've downloaded debian live and grml
23:09<b000ze>Do I need portmap program running on lenny ?
23:09<dr|z3d>b000ze: Running any services there you need seeing from the net at large?
23:09<gord>evanbd: no a reboot is a valid troubleshooting technique when all else fails, it might have been a strange hardware or firmware issue
23:10<b000ze>dr|z3d, I dont understand
23:10<dr|z3d>b000ze: then no, you don't need portmap.
23:10<evanbd>gord: It would be valid if I had a reason for doing it, or had changed something that might require one.
23:10<gord>arctix: ah that should be OK for recovery then
23:10*dr|z3d smiles.
23:10<evanbd>gord: This was not the first time I've rebooted since getting my new amp and having these problems.
23:10<evanbd>gord: It's just the first time it worked.
23:11<gord>evanbd: hmm, i'd consider your issue unreolved then, sadly
23:11<arctix>my second disc is NTFS on sata where my windows is installed, is it possible to copy my data there? will it be possible to mount this partition?
23:12<gord>arctix: yes, use ntfs-3g to mount the ntfs volume, as long as laast windows shutdown awas OK and not a dirty crash, you can write to ntfs with that
23:14<gord>arctix: with those erros its hardware issue, just be thankful the linux kernel is telling you there's a problem, not sure if windows would be so helpful
23:14<gord>arctix: or even detect it lol

23:17<gord>arctix: I'd go normal first try
23:20<arctix>on debian live it gives same errors but anyway gnome starts, hope that i'll be able to copy this data - it's main thing for now ;)
23:20<gord>arctix: my normal workflow is like this - cat /proc/partitions , to make sure you see all drives then parted /dev/sda, to see whatpartitions have what filsystems
23:21-!-sejerpz [] has quit [Quit: Ex-Chat]
23:21<gord>arctix: then same for sdb etc, until you work out where your /home partitions is (assuming you have seperate home )
23:22<gord>arctix: yes if time is problem just grab the essential data
23:23-!-evanbd [] has left #debian []

23:25<gord>arctix: if it passes manufacturers test thenmy next step is usually to run DBAN on the disk with multiple passes (like 21) and verify _all_ passes. That way any errors show up. beware dban and some newer disk contorllers have problems. with proces of modern disk i usually just buy new if I'm suspioius, your data is worth a llarge chunk of your life
23:26<gord>arctix: good seperate home makes it easer
23:26<gord>well, faster anyways
23:28<gord>copy the essential file first just in case disk fails soon, then copy all data again to another directory, potetntially it could crap out in 10 minutes from now <eek>

23:31<arctix>aww, i'm not sure how i can download ntfs-3g :S or maybe I need to add line to /etc/fstab?
23:32<gord>arctix: not sure if ntfs3g on livecd, hmm. its usually a userspace mount
23:32<gord>you have networking up?
23:33<arctix>not sure, but aptitude search doesn't work
23:33<arctix>i mean doesn't give any response for ntfs-3g search, so network doesn't work probably

23:51<gord>arctix: is gparted installed? that can be easier to get your head round with a picture
23:52<gord>arctix: its possible the fs isn't recognised because of damage you see, hence might beed fsck to cure it. i;d dd it first though, play safe
