01:11<eightyeight>meh. sisk left
01:11<eightyeight>there's a lot of reasons to install 64-bit if you have the hardware. even if you only have 2GB of ram

01:29-!-streuner [~streuner@] has joined #debian
01:31<eightyeight>gdb: sure
01:31<eightyeight>prorably the biggest reason that comes to mind, is deeper stacked system calls
01:32<eightyeight>IE: if you have an xfs filesystem, on lvm exported over nfs
01:32<eightyeight>a 32-bit kernel will oops, because it doesn't have a big enough stack
01:33<eightyeight>second thing, probably just as obvious, is the bus width
01:33<eightyeight>your "freeway" has 64 lanes instead of 32. when a traffic jam hits, you'll be glad you have the extra width to push the data through
01:33-!-xplosive [~xplosive@] has joined #debian
01:33-!-xplosive [~xplosive@] has quit []
01:34<eightyeight>anything cpu-intensive can cause a "traffic jam"- cas, cad, video editing, ajax-intensive sites, etc
01:35-!-dbvoliooooo [~gffd@] has joined #debian
01:35-!-jhujhiti [~jhujhiti@] has joined #debian
01:36<eightyeight>you don't have kernel memory splits in 64-bit like you do in 32-bit. at least not yet. maybe when we have 17EB of ram, that will be an issue. :)
01:36-!-joar [~joar@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
01:36<eightyeight>of course, your virtual address space is substantially larger, meaning each individual pid can address more than 4GB of virt memory
01:36<eightyeight>more breathing room for mmap()'d files
01:36<eightyeight>certain applications ond operations will execute faster
01:37<eightyeight>long story short: the 32-bit vs 64-bit argument is multi-faceted
01:38<eightyeight>sure, it has it's drawbacks: some stuff will execute slower. binaries are usually larger in size
01:38<eightyeight>the general user likely won't notice the difference
01:39-!-cockroach [] has joined #debian
01:39<eightyeight>but, if you're aware of 64-bit ns 32-bit, then you likely will
01:39-!-vigneswari [~vigneswar@] has joined #debian
01:39-!-cockroach [] has quit []
01:39<eightyeight>oh, lots of nonfree software struggles in 64-bit systems, as they're generally compiled for 32-bit systems, looking for 32-bit specific libraries
01:39<eightyeight>like flash, skype, adobe reader, etc
01:40<eightyeight>gdb: anyway, hope that helps
01:40<jmad980>flash 64bit is gone for now btw
01:40<jmad980>still is better than nswrapper'd flash IMO

01:42<eightyeight>if it weren't for microsoft windows, i think we would have been on 64-bit a long time ago. and because of windows, i think we'll still be on 32-bit for some time
01:42<jmad980>but windows is pushing 64bit as well now
01:43<eightyeight>but, i have 64-bit hardware, and i don't run microsoft windows, so it's no big deal for me
01:43-!-muuli [] has joined #debian
01:50<eightyeight>don't look at this as bashing fedora, because that's not my intent
01:50<eightyeight>i just tried upgrading my fedora vm from f10 to f13 (yeah, probably not the best), and it wiped my volumes, to start fresh

01:58<mjt>last firefox is able to run flash and other stuff in separate process
01:58<mjt>that should allow to solve 64bit flash issue
01:58<mjt>ie, just run it in a separate _32bit_ process ;)

02:32<marcPV>gdb: thanks, and what about rar files?
02:33<gdb>marcPV: I believe rar is in non-free.
02:35<gdb>That's the non-free version. I think it supports RAR3 archives
02:35<gdb>unrar-free is in main and supports RAR2 and earlier
02:35-!-pavi_away is now known as pavi

02:43<mjt>what's problematic in rar3?
02:43-!-chealer [] has joined #debian
02:43<mjt>haven't seen any probs with it...
02:44<mjt>(but after xz come out i switched to it)
02:45<gdb>mjt: I think he's referring to the fact that RAR3 is "always the problem" because it's patent encumbered, hence the need to get it from non-free.
02:45<mjt>i used to get it from the author usually. After all it's just one executable :)
02:46<mjt>(well, basically anyway)
02:48<mjt>but ok. i didn't notice marcPV left

Even if the channel happens to be less helpful, support for distributions other than Debian is offtopic on #debian. See also <based on debian>.

12:18<Do[k]Ho`>someone can help me please ?
12:19<felixs>steven: its as simple as that: wpasupplicant knows a list of wlans, and whenever one of them is available, it authenticates and runs ifup with the configured logical name.
12:20<retrospectacus>Do[k]Ho`: well the answer is to run QMAKESPEC="something" ; export QMAKESPEC ; qmake -r

12:22<retrospectacus>steven: open a console (gnome-terminal, konsole, xterm) and type that in there

12:22<felixs>then ifup wlan0 starts wpasupplicant

13:42<dpkg>i heard denyhosts is a python script that analyzes the sshd logs to find possible break-in attempts. It keeps track of the frequency of attempts from each host. Additionally, upon discovering a repeated attack host, the /etc/hosts.deny file is updated to prevent future break-in attempts from that host. An email report can be sent to a system email address.

14:11<EmleyMoor>Hmmm... not sure I've a way to do that....
14:11<EmleyMoor>However, thanks for the hint
14:13<dondelelcaro>EmleyMoor: well, if the filesystem isn't on lvm, it may not be possible... but that's one of the reasons why lvm is so useful
14:13<dondelelcaro>EmleyMoor: otherwise, you could try making the filesystem read-only temporarily, but I've no idea out outlook would handle that

16:13<staspika_>Hi all. What the word
16:13<staspika_>Hi all. What the word 'trunk' means in 'linux-image-2.6.32-trunk-amd64'
16:14<jordanm>it means upgrade your system and remove it
16:14<locklace>staspika_: "don't use this"

16:15-!-locklace [] has joined #debian
16:15<staspika_>Thank you for your wise advice. But what the word 'trunk' actually means?
16:16<dpkg>[trunk] a term from version control systems such as <cvs>, <svn> and <git>. The "trunk" can often be thought of as a developer's playground, the stability (or otherwise) of the code varies from project to project. . Debian 2.6.32-trunk-* kernel image/headers packages are obsolete and were removed from the archive ; /msg judd kernel --release squeeze ; see Debian bug #568160 and <kernel abi>.
16:17<retrospectacus>tS_rB: my servers use qmail. What's your question?
16:17<locklace>i hope it's "what is djb smoking"
16:18<staspika_>locklace, Can you advice me how to move from trunk to anything else? Why was it installed by default?
16:19<jordanm>staspika_: becuase you are using testing, and thats what the default was when the CD was created
16:19<jordanm>staspika_: also, testing users should know how to do things such as upgrade their kernel
16:19<jordanm>!tell staspika_ about testing

19:17<interbird>are you trying to ssh into a remote or into a local box ?
19:17<themill>!connection refused
19:17<dpkg>When a TCP connection (e.g. telnet somehost 80) gives the error "connection refused", it means that either the service in question is not running on the specified IP address at all (e.g. apache has died), or that a firewall has rejected your SYN packet and sent back a rejection packet to you. It's a VERY CLEAR, EXPLICIT error message and ALWAYS means one of those two things.

A para is a set of lines grouped together and separated with shift-enter. A hard-enter (just enter) creates a net paragraph. If you have to make this tekst: remember: use shift-enter for lines that belong together and use enter to start a net group of lines (para) and later you can change

20:19<dondelelcaro>interbird: I don't know what makeup means, but markup just means notation which tells you about the structure of text. It's almost impossible to have meaningful documentation without it.
20:20<dondelelcaro>tS_rB: first off, are you sure you want to be running qmail?
20:20-!-Spami|Thug [~Spami|] has joined #debian
20:20<tS_rB>not sure at all, haha
20:21<retrospectacus>tS_rB: well you can assign multiple IPs to a single interface first of all (google it) but I don't know how you might do that. Perhaps with iptables.
20:21<dondelelcaro>tS_rB: unless you have specific requirements that necessitate qmail, I'd suggest postfix or exim instead...
20:21<retrospectacus>tS_rB: I am heading home now, good luck :)
20:22<retrospectacus>oh sorry I thought you said install a second network card. Yeah 2 mail processes might help
20:22<tS_rB>i use parallels as a hypervisor, so i will probably be finished with this situation faster if i just deploy an extra container, thanks for looking
20:22-!-smv [smv@] has joined #debian
20:23<tS_rB>it's funny that you have to patch qmail just to define an interface in the first place
20:23<dondelelcaro>tS_rB: if you're using exim, it's the interface option...
20:23<dondelelcaro>tS_rB: yes... this is one of the (many) reasons why almost no one uses it
20:24<Xenguy>dondelelcaro: some sysadmin insisted to me that qmail was fastest of all the MTAs
20:24<Xenguy>dondelelcaro: though I never saw a benchmark
20:25<dondelelcaro>Xenguy: it may be, but that's mainly because it violates all kinds of RFCs
20:25<interbird>dondelelcaro, ok. we are going into a discussion about documenting, content and presentation; which i would like to but maybe some other time. For the sake of me having just two fingers to type, please come to my home town a day and I will give you beer and you will tell me your thoughts about mark-makeup. Cool dondel :-)

20:42<interbird>it depends on your repositories (/etc/apt/sources.list); apt-cache search mc will find the version according to your repos; look at and select unstable to find the newest version of a package
20:42<Silicium01>And by the way guys, is anyone familiar with and it's sources? I need the php 5.3.2 and it's not in backport, has it but I'm a little vary of using untrusted repositories
20:42<interbird>(mc being an example)
20:43<jmarsden>Silicium01: If you *know* where your sources.list points, you can do aptitude show PACKAGE | grep ^Version -- but that will not letyou see what is in Lenny if you are running Squeeze, for example...
20:44<Silicium01>qq-, apt-cache policy seems exactly what I wanted
20:45<Silicium01>guys, what I'm trying to do is following: use altrnative sources that have PHP 5.3.2 until official stable package becomes available, so in the meantime i want to be checking
20:45<interbird>why make your work dependant on a version of php that is not yet common ?
20:45<interbird>(unless for testing)
20:45<Silicium01>interbird, I need it for the type of thing i'm working on, it requires 5.3.2
20:46<interbird>and you can deply your work once it is finished to clients running this version ?
20:47<Silicium01>interbird, no, I probably will not even be done with my work untill official 5.3.2 becomes available in Debain stable
20:47<jmarsden>Silicium01: 5.3.2 is a *bug fix* release... which bug was interfering with "the type of thing" you are working on?
20:47<Silicium01>jmarsden, symfony 2.0 requires 5.3.2
20:48<Silicium01>It's a php framework

20:53<interbird>maybe, but to keep things simple, portable and understandable should be your goal; not some future-may-or-may-not-be feature of php or so. Think about it; do you really need 5.3.2 to make it work? And what about later... will your code be maintainable or very tailored to this version of php. Not a good way to go...

23:21<dbldtx>interbird; Wagh. Not burning you. I asked if there were any new developments on the Squeeze+nVidia which is covered in factoids and supported on this channel very well; you asked me if I'd tried Nouveau which is terribly conter-productive to my ongoing ISSUES which many in this channel have attempted to support. I'm not burning you, I'm just saying that I asked here about nVidia "BLOBS" (?) for a reason, sorry you didn't know what that
23:22<dbldtx>I idle in this channel religiously BECAUSE of this one issue. Found a fix via research and am implementing it/dist-upgrading now. Sorry to ruffle your feathers.
23:23<Lantizia>Hey, I'm currently using courier-imap and all my mailbox folders are subfolders of Inbox... does anyone know if Dovecot does it that way too?
23:24<dbldtx>Lantizia; Yes.
23:24<Lantizia>It's really silly!
23:24<interbird>whatever dbldtx, go out and buy win7 or so; your card will work then; don't burn the effords undertaken by ingenious people to get closed video hardware to work. Go buy someting...
23:25<dbldtx>Your Inbox, actually, cannot contain anything other than folders - think of it as less of a folder and more like a Parent Folder for Folders
23:26<Lantizia>OK I'll put it this way... get Thunderbird to connect via IMAP to exchange, gmail, 1&1's e-mail server etc... and the Sent/Draft/etc folders are along side Inbox
23:26<interbird>my gmail-inbox also stores a filesystem -- oops -- should not have said that...
23:26<Lantizia>With courier they are inside Inbox
23:26<Lantizia>So from that perspective (wether it's stored like that or not) how does Dovecot do it?
23:27<jhutchins_lt>Lantizia: There's more than one way to do it, but it's MUCH easier to stick to the defaults.
23:27<dbldtx>Interbird; I have Windows 7 but have never installed it, want it?. My card works now, before the fix I'm implementing. You "Go buy something..." I am not burning you, Mr. Ingenious.
23:27<Lantizia>jhujhiti, Well I'm thinking of swapping from courier to dovecot anyway... so if dovecot "displays" (i know it's not the right term) it the more saner way... then it's an added avantage
23:27<interbird>why would a want shit on my bread if i can have cheese ?
23:28<jhutchins_lt>Lantizia: Some clients don't understand altearnate arrangements.
23:28<Lantizia>jhutchins_lt, name one! :)
23:28<smv>interbird, forgive me, but "nv is an Xorg driver for NVIDIA video cards" is what i read in the nv man. i don't really see the difference bethwen nv and nouveau as a user, i mean from what they both do in the end, but while i read i see the difference only in how they are made. though, nouveau is not yet ready to replace nvidia driver, and ya, i feel the same about nvidia as you do.
23:29<jhutchins_lt>Some don't like subfolders, don't handle them gracefully.
23:29<Lantizia>jhutchins_lt, ah so your saying it's better to do it the way courier doesn't do it as default
23:30<jhutchins_lt>Just sayin' that messing with it will cause complications.
23:30<scientes>qq-, and poulsbo
23:30<interbird>smv: well, can you run a thing like compiz on the nv driver? and can compiz run on nouveau ? there's a difference...

23:31<Lantizia>So if what jhutchins_lt says is true and the subfolders thing doesn't work with some clients... It would be better if the defaults for both courier and dovecot was to NOT to that
23:32<Lantizia>I hope one of those yesses was for me
23:32<Lantizia>How is it possible I'm more confused now than before
23:33<interbird>just because...
23:33<Lantizia>I can see the truth
23:33<Lantizia>None of you have a fucking clue
23:33<scientes>smv, nouveau works, just not 3d, no opengl at all
23:33<interbird>if you don't want to get confused, just sign-off :-)
23:34<smv>scientes, and so no compiz. and so not as interbird sais.
23:34<dbldtx>scientes; thank you.
23:34<dbldtx>smv; thank you.
23:34<dbldtx>interbird; thank you

23:36<interbird>are you sure you don't have the nv driver loaded ?
23:38<dbldtx>interbird; I hope you're not talking to me.
23:38<smv>interbird, you asking me? dead sure. it's nvidia in xorg.conf cus i want compiz to work. if you tell me how to make compiz to work with noveau i ditch nvidia right away.
23:41-!-whirl [~whirl@] has joined #debian
23:41<interbird>svm: i'm not on nvidia hardware myself so i cannot go for instant-check; but i installed on friend-machine with nvidia card; nouveau is active as far as i know, but i will double-check that. you make me doubt... (to be continued...)

23:44<dbldtx>interbird; been telling you since I quoted their website, "Any 3D functionality that might exist is still unsupported. Do not ask for instructions to try it. But you can read GalliumHowto in case you are brave enough.", that you're wrong. Apologies for re-iterating.
23:45<burst>how do i add more virtual consoles? four just is not enough :/
23:45<smv>edit /etc/inittab
23:46<jhutchins_lt>burst: Well, virtual consoles are in inittab, and the default is six, so you're probably looking for desktops in X, right-clickl, configure desktop.
23:47<dbldtx>Whoo-hoo! Dist-upgrade and I'm done! Debian's a shit-storm of fun!

23:49<jhutchins_lt>burst: Ok, you're gonna bump into X at some point, which may be interesting. Or not.
23:50<smv>burst, just leave the 7th one alone, just in case you ever use X

23:54-!-sergio is now known as Guest1196
23:54<nullspace>burst: well i imagine i can use setterm to figure out how i want it then use xvesa to make it static that way yes?
23:55-!-Guest1196 [] has quit []
23:56<nullspace>burst: i cant seem to find anything in the setterm man page on setting the font or size
23:56<nullspace>just other options
