03:24<dserban_>what do you guys recommend for an imap server? I've been using dovecot for eons, but with each release it seems to be getting worse. Drops indexes, corrupts some files, segfaults etc. It hasn't gotten any better as squeeze includes an old version namely 1.2 when 2.0+ has been out for a while it seems.

03:54<reklipz>upon boot I'm receiving messages from udevd complaining about the use of SYSFS={} vs ATTR={} (perhaps it's ATTRS=, too quick to tell and I can't find a log of it in /var/log). I realize this is probably nothing to worry about, as the system boots, but I've been seeing this for a while now, and I would have expected the maintainers to have taken care of it by now.
03:54<reklipz>What's the deal?
03:56<reklipz>Err... I'm not complaining here, just trying to get a feel for what this is telling me and what I should do about it.
03:56-!-smhar [~salman@] has joined #debian
03:57<jm_>reklipz: SYSFS has been removed in recent versions of udev IIRC
03:57<Rob-Zombie>esos mensajes salen cuando tienes discos con lvm
03:57-!-noi [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
03:57<jm_>or there's a warning that this will be done or somesuch
03:57<reklipz>yeah, that is the warning I am receiving.
03:58<reklipz>Should I just let it be then?
03:58-!-berto [] has joined #debian
03:59<reklipz>I also receive this message everytime I dist-upgrade --
03:59-!-AbsintheSyringe [~havoc@] has joined #debian
04:00<reklipz>Can anyone explain what's going on here too? I think the issue is that my hal-cups-utils is too old, but there is no newer package, even in sid...
04:01<jm_>just ignore the warning or find out which package it's from and check BTS
04:02-!-mode/#debian [+l 419] by debhelper
04:02<reklipz>That i reference to the udev warning, or the cups package issue?
04:03-!-Greg [] has joined #debian
04:03<reklipz>udev it is. thanks for the help jm_
04:04<jm_>reklipz: udev, as for the last one, isn't it mostly self explanatory?
04:04<reklipz>the conflicts message is a bit confusing, but I made sense of it.
04:05<reklipz>the fact that the package is only recommended and that I was getting such a verbose prompt was confusing
04:05<jm_>the version that it's trying to install has a Conflicts: hal-cups-utils (< 0.6.17) entry, but your current version is 0.6.16-3
04:05<reklipz>I recently started using aptitude rather than apt-get, perhaps this is normal
04:05<reklipz>right, but there is no package providing 0.6.17
04:06-!-noi [] has joined #debian
04:07-!-OkropNick [] has joined #debian
04:08<reklipz>thus, I'm confused why there would even be a version of system-config-printer-udev that would require a version of a package that doesn't exist
04:08<reklipz>as no one could use it
04:08-!-michel [] has joined #debian
04:10<jm_>apparently hal-cups-utils has been removed

04:47<james333james>Anynody there?
04:48-!-mercutio22 [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
04:48<gbsd>that's 406 x "no"
04:48<james333james>anyway here is the question: Actually I'm using Linux Mint Isadora 9 and i would like to switch to Debian. Which trouble will I encounter ?
04:48<gbsd>it won't be green, for a start
04:49<gbsd>when you say "switch", do you mean, just "use as your new desktop"
04:49-!-urgen0070 [] has joined #debian
04:50<dserban_>well, save your stuff, blow it away, install deb, restore your stuff, go nuts
04:50<james333james>gbsd: i'm not an expert linux user so yes i'll think that i will installa Debian + Gnome and i will use as my new desktop
04:51<gbsd>yes, sounds good, _make sure_ that you back up all of your stuff
04:51-!-shriekout [~shriekout@] has joined #debian
04:51<james333james>gbsd: wiil i ecounter problems? Is that really hard to use ?
04:51<dserban_>ie if no specific settings you care about as a whole are there, then you're only concerned as to what's in your user directory
04:52<gbsd>you may encounter more "problems" with media files etc, but that isn't insurmountable. It's no harder to use than any other gnome desktop, and (in our opinion) a lot more stable
04:52<gbsd>(than using a derivative of debian, that is)
04:53<james333james>fbsd: i know that ubuntu and mint are derivated of debian but i don't understand why peopl don't just install Debian and their favourite desktop instead of using Ubuntu or mint etc.
04:53<gbsd>:) yes, "quite" as the English would say
04:53<james333james>fbsd: what do you mean with "Much more stable" ? My mint never crashed or had any problem
04:53<james333james>gbsd: sorry for my English
04:54-!-silice-_ [] has quit [Quit: Lost terminal]
04:54-!-silice- [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
04:54<gbsd>well, if you use Debain-stable, its a lot more stable than the "unstable" or equivalent versions. if you haven't had problems then that's fine, a lot of us in here need ultra-stable systems for servers etc or business desktops
04:55<gbsd>your english is fine ;)
04:55<james333james>gbsd: ok thanks so for professional use Debian is the choice
04:56*gbsd is mis-typing Debian a lot more recently :(
04:56<gbsd>yes, but that's just opur opinion, I hava couple of ubuntu desktops under my control, and one Mint
04:56<james333james>Which will be the advantages for a desktop user compared to ubuntu or mint ?
04:56-!-oyashiro|box [~oyashiro|] has joined #debian
04:57-!-vlt [] has joined #debian
04:57<james333james>For Example is Debian + GNOME faster on older machines than Mint or Ubuntu ?
04:57<gbsd>well, not a lot, if you don't have problems, but many people report less CPU utilisation in "normal" desktop tasks, there is less "eye candy", unless you want to install it
04:58<james333james> mhhhh
04:58<gbsd>"yes", is the general answer, when people test/compare. probably because of less stuff running
04:58<gbsd>thogh I havent compared myself, I admit
04:58<james333james>yeah i got, so a mint or ubuntu sytem proper setted maybe will run fast as a Debian
04:59<james333james>anyway if there will be not so many difficulties in using Debian i have just to try it
04:59<gbsd>well, less stuff running = mroe speed/less memory yes
04:59<gbsd>well, remember it's fully customisable, if you need something, install it.
04:59<james333james>I heard that Debian is supported by community instead of Mind and Ubuntu that were funded
04:59<james333james>(Is much more customizable than Ubuntu ??? )
05:00<vlt>Hello. I want to send an HTTP 301 redirect for every request to a spedific IP address. What do I need? An iptables rule and a web server? Do I need apache or is there a smaller solution for this task?
05:00<gbsd>one thing though, sudo is not configured by default in Debian, you may be mmore used to sude, you can add it easily though

05:01-!-arpanetbox [~arpanetbo@] has left #debian []
05:01<gbsd>james333james: Debian uses the same package management sub-systems, so is just as customisable, though, admittedly, most people who are hardcore Debian users don't worry so much about "the look" lol
05:01-!-llutz [] has joined #debian
05:02-!-mode/#debian [+l 425] by debhelper
05:02<james333james>gbsd: OK i got perfetcly, i will get my "mint" really basic and i will have to customize by myself
05:02<gbsd>james333james: but you could have it just as pretty. as for "funding", you won't see a difference unless you have actually used paid-for support i don't think
05:02<james333james>gbsd: maybe this is the reason cos a lot of people us UBUNTU, it's a ready-to-use OS like Windows (maybe better)
05:03-!-rpetre [~petre@] has joined #debian
05:03<gbsd>well, yes, that's the basic reason, Windows people are used to lots of eye-candya and lots of applications and widgets lol
05:03-!-urgen0070 [] has quit [Quit: Ухожу я от вас (xchat 2.4.5 или старше)]
05:04<gbsd>a Debian gnome install is just about ready-to-use, what you don't have you just install in seconds. It's all modular in that sense
05:04<james333james>gbsd: yeah but we have to understand the needs of common people (easy access to office, excel multimedia etc.) not everybody is confortable to start to using a OS in command line as it use to be in the past
05:04<gbsd>one of the great advantages is the APT package management system, it makes things really easy to install
05:05-!-Sez [] has joined #debian
05:05<james333james>gbsd: yes so it will be not harder, i will just need more time to set it up everything as i desire. That's all
05:05<gbsd>oh don't worry about CLI, you'll have a Gnome desktop remember, for 99% of things, at the beginning#
05:05<james333james>gbsd: it use .deb packages right?
05:05<gbsd>yes, but we install them using synaptic, or apt-get , or aptitude
05:06-!-Sez [] has quit []
05:06<gbsd>we very rarely install them "direct" with dpkg itself
05:06<james333james>bgsd: in my country internet Police use Debian, i heard
05:06<gbsd>in fact, we try to avoid it, so that it's all automatic, even if we prefer commandline
05:07<gbsd>well, it does have advantages, and it's used a lot for servers, it's "easy" to manage, compared to other distros/package managers
05:07<james333james>APT = Synaptic ?
05:08<dpkg>[APT] Advanced Packaging Tool, a package management system used by Debian and its derivatives. There is no apt program per se; APT is a C++ library of functions that are used by several command line programs for dealing with packages, notably apt-get, apt-cache, and aptitude. See also <aptitude> <apt-get>, <apt-cache>,
05:08<james333james>gsbd: (yes once in the past I installed slackware but i had to quit i'm too n00b for that)
05:08<james333james>ok tnx
05:08<gbsd>there's a clue in the names, SynAPTic, APTitude, APT-get, APTitude, they all use the same backend systemm
05:09<gbsd>ah yeas slackware isn't for "noobs",
05:09<james333james>gbsd: ok gread i didn't noticed that
05:09<james333james>gsbd: anyway there is no best distro right? it depends of the use your are goint to do about that
05:09<blarson>dselect also uses apt by default nowdays.
05:09<james333james>gsbd: maybe for a desktop common use Mint is really fine
05:10<gbsd>my mian tip is "stop worrying" about installing software, in the time we have had this conversation you could have installed a desktop GUI even on a commandline-only system, with maybe 2 or 3 lines of CLI, so WITH a GUI from the start, no problems for you
05:10<james333james>ok !!
05:11<gbsd>yes I'm sure that Mint is fine for you, we're all on the same side, but form Mint support you need to use #Mint or wherever, and Debian support is here, just ask if ever you are stuck
05:12<james333james>ok thanks so much for your avalaibility !
05:12<gbsd>they are more similar underneath that you think, but because of the subtle differences, and the customisations that both Ubuntu and Mint (and all the others use) we can't help with those distro, or we may break something they have customised, and vice-versa
05:12<gbsd>no problem :)

I've run cups for eons, and know how to get around... what I want to do is now install only the client, to connect to a central cups server... it seems that cups as a whole needs to be installed... am i right? or can I just use the cups-client package and go from there? it provides... almost nothin'

05:16<gbsd>yeah too many segfaults from not-yet-mature packages, it's a shame they can't slow down a bit haha.
05:16<gbsd>stable enough for me to allow it at work though, if they want

06:20<Coburn>I'm working on a Debian based custom distro, and just installed LXDE.
06:20-!-SweSG [] has quit []
06:20<Coburn>LXDE boots up fine, and I got LXDM running for the login screen.
06:21<Coburn>However,I don't have any window controls like the Minimize, Maximise and Close controls
06:21-!-bl0wback [] has joined #debian
06:21<Coburn>and also windows flicker on and off for some reason, I suspect LXDE is trying to restart the window manager but that doesn't exist.
06:21<Coburn>Any suggestions?
06:22<pipe>You probably do this in a VM.
06:23<Coburn>Is that the fault?
06:23<pipe>The retarded terminal spawning is

06:24<pipe>Or maybe it's not the same problem. I always have the terminal window open and close repeatedly when installing LXDE in QEMU
06:24<Coburn>Yeah, that's the problem
06:24<Coburn>I have any app open
06:24<pipe>Google for it, it's a known bug.
06:24<gbsd>I run LXDE ok in a Virtualbox VM, both home-rolled and from LXDE.iso, no problems like that for me.
06:25<Coburn>I have any app open, they load up fine. Screen flickers, app moves 16pixels down, then offscreen
06:25<pipe>Only happens in QEMU I think, and kvm which is pretty much qemu
06:25<pipe>Coburn: yes.
06:26<Coburn>Hm, okay
06:26-!-jrib [] has joined #debian
06:26<pipe>Coburn: Can't remember why or what to do about it. It doesn't happen on real hardware or in other VMs apparently.
06:26<Coburn>So QEMU is to blame
06:26<pipe>qemu or openbox :)
06:26<pipe>(the LXDE window manager)
06:26<Coburn>Thanks for confirming this, you don't know how much time it's just saved me
06:27<Coburn>I was just about to put my fist through the monitor, lol
06:27<pipe>If you're lucky there's a simple fix.

06:58<Jim-theBGPguy>Coburn: one consideration is that building live-cds means many virtual machines, lower requirements means you can run concurrently, Gnome-on-Gnome whilst building Gnome hurts
06:59<Coburn>Well, my liveCD, called CoburnOS is designed for speed, It doesn't try to make you coffee and wash the dishes, you boot it up and it's ready to go

07:44<Niffum>32 bit
07:45<Niffum>funny you shoudl say that
07:45<Niffum>when i use to run cross-compiling.. i somehow installed a 64bit compiler.. and it took me a year to work out thats what it had done
07:45<Coburn>You may want to take a shot at running a 64bit kernel, some Pentium 4 chips can do 64bit
07:45<Niffum>had me stumped as to why i couldn't compile a kernel

07:45<Niffum>not this one
07:46<Niffum>besides, it seems to run fine with 2.6.26

07:49<pipe>I don't know what good it would do though..

09:07<fracc>Hi guys. I have another stupid question. I have an nvidia graphics card with two monitors, both configured as separate X screens via nvidia-settings control panel. I'm using nvidia's official (256.53) driver package. One of the monitors is attached to VGA and the other is attached to the HDMI port. The system thinks the VGA is the primary monitor, and the HDMI is secondary. How do I tell it "No, it's the other way around?"

13:02<jhutchins_lt>speedStick: Some of them may be here. Why not post your question and see?
13:02<speedStick>ok, the thing is I have extremely limited knowledge of ftp servers, but they are asking me to restrict a user to their home directory which is easy...but allow them access to another specfic directory somewhere else
13:03<paco>by the there any backport which provides latest kernel for debian?
13:03<speedStick>outside of their home dir
13:03<speedStick>does that make sense?
13:03<speedStick>lets say they want a user to have access to /home/userdir and /var/www/somesite
13:03-!-hdguerreroc [~hdguerrer@] has left #debian [Saliendo]
13:03<speedStick>is that possible?
13:03<davekong>themill: most my experience is with Arch, where you specific some meta-data in a bash file and then specifiy the steps the build the compile the source and it builds a package, something like that would be ideal
13:03-!-srbaker [] has joined #debian
13:04<davekong>so basically I pretend like I am installing from source but I get a package
13:04<jordanm>davekong: umm, like a debian source package?
13:05<davekong>jordanm: I would need to look more into what a debian source package is but if it sounds the same I will go that route
13:06<themill>davekong: ahh... so rather than trying to bastardise the debian build process, you want to actually use it. "/msg dpkg nmg" for an overview of how this works.
13:06<jordanm>!tell davekong about nmg
13:06<themill>dpkg: tell davekong about source package

13:18<Tommos>speedStick: you can make a symlink in the users homedir, and give him r or r+w rights on /var/www/somesite
13:19<jhutchins_lt>speedStick: Depends on the ftp server. What I have is that the user's www directory is a subdirectory of their /home.
13:19<jhutchins_lt>speedStick: Then their domain's ServerRoot points to that directory, and permissions on the directory are such that the webserver can access it.
13:19-!-jibel [] has joined #debian
13:20<jhutchins_lt>speedStick: However, I no longer use ftp for that, I use ssh.

13:20<speedStick>this is a once off request, but i have a question if i do a simlink, when they connect by ftp wont it make the link downloadable like a file
13:21<speedStick>i dont think it would take them to the location defined there within
13:21<speedStick>or am i mistaken?
13:21<jhutchins_lt>speedStick: Depends on ftp server and configuration.
13:21<jhutchins_lt>speedStick: It will either follow the link or it won't.
13:22<gbsd>speedStick: the restriction to the users home is usually set it the ftp daemon config file, anything you put (or link) under that will be accessible via normal permissions to them. So that way, it's easy, but beware you don't allow them too much freedom, link carefully, think, set perms appropriately, test
13:22<gbsd>speedStick: make a trail test directory linked under your won home and run a test server and see

14:36<Gathond>should make something into "something something else"
14:37<Gathond>sed -r 's/(something)/\1 something else/'
14:37<Gathond>apparently sed dislikes $
14:37<Lantizia>LINE1=header1, LINE2=info, LINE3=header2, LINE4=info
14:37<Gathond>echo something | sed -r 's/(something)/\1 something else/
14:37<rpetre>$1 is perlish for \1 :)
14:37<Lantizia>so basically search for header2 and then replace info for newinfo
14:38<Lantizia>rpetre, does that help?
14:38<rpetre>oh, different lines
14:38<rpetre>you need to play with N and P
14:38<Gathond>sed is bad at newlines
14:38<Gathond>my advice would be don't use sed

14:38<AltBass>Hello everyone. I have a problem with 5.0.4 distro. I cannot configure eth0 interface, the network card is Realtek 8129-based. If i try to "ifup eth0" I get SIOCSIFLAGS: Cannot assign requested address. eth0 is displayed with "ifconfig -a". What should I do to bring eth0 up?
14:39<Gathond>rpetre: which is ... not that well with newlines:) I would prefer perl or C then

14:45<AltBass>Is it used here to repeat a question some times? I'm a noob.
14:46<rpetre>Lantizia: this would modify the first 'info' after the first 'header' line, if this is what you need
14:46<xeross>Gathond: Wouldn't the chroot be activated on login ?
14:46<Gathond>xeross: it can't be done from inside it, since those outside references dos not have meaning there
14:46<Lantizia>rpetre, nope it only changes info after header2 - exactly what I wanted :)
14:46<Gathond>xeross: yes, so you need to have the mount in place BEFORE the user logs into the chrooted environment
14:46<rpetre>AltBass: what does your /etc/network/interfaces say about eth0 ?

15:54<jordanm>then perhaps you should explain the exact errors you are getting

15:54<Efreak>dd if=/dev/urandom of=/dev/sda1
15:54<h2-gw>grub is unable to locate the partition by uuid or label because I screwed up the partition boot sector
15:55<jordanm>h2-gw: oh, you mean /boot/grub/
15:55<h2-gw>cfdisk finds it find, gparted sees it, with label
15:55<h2-gw>jordan_, no
15:55<h2-gw>please google partition boot sector

15:55<jordanm>h2-gw: its not required
15:55<h2-gw>the device works fine, htere's nothing wrong with it
15:56<h2-gw>I appreciate your attempt to help but you are not understanding my question
15:56<jordanm>a partition does not need to be marked as bootable
15:56<h2-gw>this has nothing to do with that
15:56<jordanm>yep, I suppose I don't
15:56<h2-gw>again, I have corrupted my partition boot sector data by accidentally overwriting it with xp boot sector data
15:57-!-NickyP [] has joined #debian
15:57<h2-gw>this makes grub unable to use uuid or label to start that partition, I was hoping to find a tool like the xp fixboot to fix this, but otherwise I'll nuke the partition cp the data to a temp one then recreate the partition

19:15<blockowitsch>hello. is there a fast way to install i386 libs into the /lib32 folder on a amd64 system? i could imagine a tool that downloads the i386 version of a package extracts the contents and repacks it so that all shared libraries are installed into /lib32 instead of /lib
19:15<themill>,info ia32-libs --arch amd64
19:15<blockowitsch>i do not mean the libraries that are already provided by the ia32-xxx packages
19:15<judd>Package ia32-libs (libs, optional) in lenny/amd64: ia32 shared libraries for use on amd64 and ia64 systems. Version: 2.7+lenny1; Size: 26181.9k; Installed: 66844k

21:59<Lantizia>_spOOn_, cgi-fcgi and PDO are the extra ones... but I'm not sure if that is because I have debian packages apache2-mpm-worker and libapache2-mod-fcgid installed
21:59<jawnsy>maybe they just forgot, so file a bug report?
22:00<Lantizia>jawnsy, yeah but I want to _check_ if they forgot ... or if they're from somewhere else
22:00<jawnsy>I doubt either of those apache2 things would install `PHP Data Objects', whatever that is
22:00<Lantizia>and cgi-fcgi PHP module?
22:00<Lantizia>I mean it is php5-cgi lol
22:01<Lantizia>so I guess it could be an extra that php5 doesn't have

22:34<jpinx-eeepc>damian: you don't put the iso on the usb stick! you put the installer there ;)
22:34<dpkg>well, netinst is a small CD image with which you can install Debian. If, during the installation process you have a working Internet connection, you can install more packages straight away, otherwise, you will have a base install and more packages later. See See also <check iso image>, <dialup install>, <usb install>, <installer>.
22:35<jpinx-eeepc>!usb install
22:35<dpkg>Yes, it is possible to install Debian from a USB stick/thumbdrive/pen drive/key, as long as your system's BIOS can boot from USB. Details are in the Installation Guide, see . To download USB stick images, ask me about <install debian>. to prepare from Windows. BIOS can't boot from USB? Use

23:10<abrotman>i don't think you need it, but IIRC it has a template to create self-signed
23:10<abrotman>(or maybe that was in the openssl package)

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