00:17<dominick>okay, I have the linux-image-2.6.32-bpo.5-686 and aptitude installed from bpo, and am logged into the new kernel. I'm trying to install squeeze. Which ones should I use for upgrade? safe-upgrade and full-upgrade, or dist-upgrade and upgrade?

00:20<jpinx-eeepc>dominick: dist-upgrade is depcerated
00:21<jpinx-eeepc>deprecated - even
00:21<jpinx-eeepc>use safe- and then full-
00:21<dominick>thnx jpinx, so that leaves me with safe- and full!!
00:21<jpinx-eeepc>dominick: do a safe one till it stops complaining
00:21-!-aabbuser [] has joined #debian
00:22<jpinx-eeepc>mine took several runs to clear depends
00:22-!-aabbuser [] has quit []
00:22<dominick>do you mean I should run it several times?
00:22<jpinx-eeepc>yes - if it throws errors
00:23<jpinx-eeepc>dominick: when safe- runs without errors you can go for full- and run several times if it throws errors
00:23<jpinx-eeepc>dominick: and use aptitude - not apt-get
00:24<dominick>yea. I always use aptitude. and thanks for sharing the knowledge!!

00:26<dominick>just to estimate the ETA, how much data will be downloaded during the complete upgradation process? I have gnome installed, which will take a little more than 1GB i guess. How much more will be downloaded?
00:26<jpinx-eeepc>not much more I guess

00:29<ikaros>may i ask a question??

03:15-!-jibel [] has joined #debian
03:15<seeS>so you want the log to go to two different files? and you cannot just copy it?
03:16<seeS>btw cating the first into the second works
03:16<austinium>yeah i'll try appending file1 to file2, since file2 already has o/p from previous commands
03:17<seeS>maybe use >>
03:17<Arrowmaster>man tee
03:17<seeS>>> is append rather than overwrite
03:17<jm_>modern shells support foo > file1 >file2

04:04<s_i_m>but what did you do with 256.44? installed with Nvidia's installer, or ported the nvidia-graphics-drivers package to use this new version?
04:04<MaXim>the former
04:04<s_i_m>that is not the best option...
04:05<MaXim>it works, unlike every other method I've tried
04:05<s_i_m>your setup can break on upgrades, for instance
04:05<MaXim>then I can simply install it again
04:05<MaXim>I don't have all day to fiddle with my linux install; I have better things to get on with
04:05<s_i_m>it is the method one would use in Slackware, nit Debian =)

04:11<MaXim>I gave plenty of information, and I also linked to a forum thread
04:12<MaXim>people simply told me to go to #NVIDIA instead.
04:12<MaXim>I don't think you should infer anything about my atitude unless you were actually around when I asked for help

04:51<mib_sdrtuv>im trying to get fn-f7 working on my thinkpad x40
04:52<mib_sdrtuv>the script works, but it is not executed by fn-f7 and i dont know why
04:52<s_i_m>what is that function exactly?
04:52<s_i_m>on my Dell laptop there is no such
04:53<mib_sdrtuv>s_i_m: toggle screen (lvds - vga) using xrandr
04:53<s_i_m>i think it is an acpi key
04:54<mib_sdrtuv>it is. i created a event-file and restarted acpid
04:54<mib_sdrtuv>but still no luck
04:54<sheldonh>DSA-2089 says ''It is recommended to uncomment the 'session.entropy_file' and 'session.entropy_length' settings in the php.ini files.'' there are uncommented values for both of these already. any clarification available?

04:57<s_i_m>mib_sdrtuv, you can check with kacpimon if the kernel sends any events when you press that key

05:04-!-jhutchins_lt [] has joined #debian
05:04<dominick>austinium, if you utilize most of your RAM, I recommend having 2x the RAM capacity
05:05-!-montoya [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
05:05<austinium>dominick would the 2x RAM method hold true for people with 3GB or more of RAM too?
05:06<dominick>I have a 1GB RAM and hv 10GB swap, for no apparent reason at all.
05:06<dominick>austinium, for something more than 1.5GB RAM, you can have a 1x swap!
05:06<austinium>how do you think the automatic partitioning schemes decide how much SWAP to create
05:07<austinium>i guess the amount of disk space available also has a part to play in that
05:07<sheldonh>austinium: a) do you actually need swap? b) are you actually going to miss 2GB of disk space?
05:08<dominick>austinium, you have an alternative of creating a swap file, without a swap partition. You can then utilize all your HDD memory!
05:09<jpinx-eeepc>!tell dominick about edit
05:11<dominick>jpinx-eeepc, do you want me to edit the factoid with my solution? I've never done it before.

05:14<dominick>i was left with a broken kernel and udev, from which I couldn't figure out a way. #debian also couldn't help me!
05:14<jm_>that's a known thing
05:15<s_i_m>that is serious and should be reported if not yet reported...
05:15<jm_>!squeeze udev
05:15<dpkg>As of <udev> 150 in squeeze, Linux kernel 2.6.27 or newer is required (i.e. upgrade kernel and udev at the same time). If udev installation fails and you already have a squeeze kernel installed, then reboot into the new kernel and "aptitude -f install ; aptitude safe-upgrade" to continue. See also <squeeze kernel>, <kernel abi>,
05:15<s_i_m>ah, okay. i have heard of this.
05:15<dominick>jm_, I couldn't have the kernel running, nor could I have a working udev. The factoid helps if you already have a squeeze kernel installed!!

05:25<dominick>err... I'm not able to understand what I did wrong! englighten me!
05:27<smv>altough i wasn't doing an update to squeeze but to sid, no more than a month ago, i was able to just edit sources.list and do aptitude update && aptitude full-upgrade, on a lenny system installed from the netinst cd, perhaps a 'standard instal' (not sure if the term is the best one). might've been just luck, but only had to redo aptitude full-upgrade only once after a reboot..
05:28<jpinx-eeepc>!tell dominick about lenny->squeeze
05:28<jpinx-eeepc>dominick: is that better?
05:30<dominick>jpinx-eeepc, I had problems installing udev and the kernel at the same time. That's where I got stuck all the time!
05:31<jpinx-eeepc>dominick: ok - I hear you and I'll do more on it when I get time
05:31<jpinx-eeepc>dominick: /pm me your method

10:49<ikaros>hello dpkg
10:49-!-Kamzor [] has joined #debian
10:50<moldovean>dpkg, lenny->squeeze
10:50<dpkg>See <squeeze udev> you may need to upgrade your kernel from bpo first. Then remove any APT source specific to stable (such as volatile) or bpo, then s/lenny/squeeze/ on your sources.list and then aptitude update && aptitude install aptitude linux-image-`uname -r | sed 's,.*-,,'` ; reboot; aptitude safe-upgrade && aptitude full-upgrade. Also ask me about <d-d-a>, <apt-listchanges>, <testing>.
10:50-!-pavlo [~betex@] has joined #debian
10:50<moldovean>dpkg, squeeze udev
10:50<dpkg>As of <udev> 150 in squeeze, Linux kernel 2.6.27 or newer is required (i.e. upgrade kernel and udev at the same time). If udev installation fails and you already have a squeeze kernel installed, then reboot into the new kernel and "aptitude -f install ; aptitude safe-upgrade" to continue. See also <squeeze kernel>, <kernel abi>,

10:52<ikaros>it looks like a huge processes
10:52<jpinx-eeepc>moldovean: happy with the new factoids ? ;)
10:52<jpinx-eeepc>ikaros: it's not that bad, but you do need to follow the guide carefully
10:53<ikaros>btw how do i search the APT source address in internet??
10:53<dpkg>The list of repositories for installing packages is /etc/apt/sources.list and has lines like "deb http://ftp.<cc> lenny main" and "deb lenny/updates main" where <cc> is your country code. Be sure to run "aptitude update" after editing sources.list. Also see <mirrors> <apt-spy> <lenny security> <testing security> "man sources.list" and /usr/share/doc/apt/examples/sources.list
10:53<ikaros>thank you dpkg, jpinx-eeepc
10:53<moldovean>jpinx-eeepc, i don't see why use bpo , but other vice seems ok
10:54<jpinx-eeepc>moldovean: if you are running lenny then bpo is the easiest kernel upgrade option
10:54-!-nullbyt3 [] has joined #debian
10:55<moldovean>but, not convinced (me)
10:55<ikaros>if i wanna find other mirror address, how to do it easily, dpkg?
10:56<dpkg>debian mirrors is probably or | ask me about <apt-spy> or <netselect-apt> | to make a mirror, see or, see also <debmirror>, <apt-mirror>, <mirror size>.
10:56<dpkg>a secret! Shh! 'Mirror, mirror, on the wall... who is the fastest of them all?' Note that it will overwrite your sources.list when finished, so (1) cp /etc/apt/sources.list /etc/apt/sources.list.mybak (2) apt-get install apt-spy (3) apt-spy update; apt-spy -d [stable,testing,unstable] -a [Africa,Asia,Europe,North-America,Oceania,South-America] (4) fix your sources.list by adding back in any other mirrors you had been using.

13:32<mmestnik>Hehe, the part about /usr being on NFS is funny. I reported problems using splashy when /usr was on another file system and I was told that it's an error to have /usr on a different partition from /etc... and I think splashy still fails to work in that case.
13:34<mmestnik>I'd like to see a decision on this issue. I'd imagine there'd be much argument... Perhaps a vote(or policy change) is in order.

My nanny also does not speak much english, and can read less. I have an old(er) laptop I will be building for her to use for the basics..web, email, that's probably about it.

16:16<Cefi>now i startet it in a terminal and got this: firefox-bin:19493): Gtk-CRITICAL **: gtk_drag_set_icon_pixbuf: assertion `GDK_IS_DRAG_CONTEXT (context)' failed

16:18<Cefi>i use lenny
16:19<old>Cefi: Probably you just need to upgrade iceweasel.
16:21<old>Cefi: Wait... This bug is really old. Which version of iceweasel you use?
16:21<inocid>In my X system (joe's window manager and xterm) my Alt Gr key doesn't work. However it does work if I press a key after launching startx. If I just wait for X to load it doesn't work at all. Any suggestions?
