01:40<leocade>hey guys
01:40<leocade>i was wondering if i could get some help with problems im having with installing debian
01:40-!-jester45 [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
01:40-!-Brigo [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
01:40<cthuluh>leocade: just explain your problem. if someone can help he will
01:41<leocade>i managed to install debian on my laptop from a usb drive by mounting it to /cdrom
01:41<leocade>the first one i used was netinstall
01:42<leocade>and this one im trying to do on my desktop is from a CD iso file i put on my flashdrive
01:42<leocade>and when it asks for cd it says that it cant find it so i tried mounting it again, like i did before
01:43<cthuluh>did you read the official debian method to install from an usb drive?
01:43<leocade>but it returns "mounting /dev/cdroms/cdrom0 on /cdrom failed: invalid argument
01:43<leocade>i tried the program that they suggested but i've had less success that way
01:44<cthuluh>which program?
01:44-!-bemawi [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
01:44<dragonfly>leocade, i'm not familiar with doing it that way (I always just burn it to disk cause cds are cheap) but usually a usb drive will show up as /dev/sdb so i would try to mount /dev/sdbX /cdrom
01:44<leocade>hmm it was some weeks ago, i had to download it on windows and run it through command prompt
01:45-!-gil-galad [~imran@] has joined #debian
01:46<cthuluh>leocade: I meant this:
01:46<leocade>i tried mount /dev/sdb /cdrom and /dev/sdb1 /cdrom and it says the same thing failed: invalid argument
01:47<cthuluh>you need to mount the iso file
01:47<cthuluh>mount -o loop ./my.iso /cdrom
01:48<leocade>how do i get it from the usb drive? i try to mount the usb drive so that i can get to the iso file
01:48<leocade>and it says the same thing
01:48<cthuluh>perhaps is the usb drive alreay mounted, don't you think?
01:49<cthuluh>leocade: type "mount" at the command prompt
01:49<leocade>i cant remember the iso name, which directory would it be in?
01:49<dragonfly>leocade, what is the output of "mount"?
01:49-!-DjKazik [~Pompka@] has joined #debian
01:49<dragonfly>leocade, the iso would be in whatever directory you put it in...if you can't remember, let's get it mounted and we can help you find it
01:50<leocade>rootfs on / type rootfs (rw) none on /proc type proc (rw) none on /sys type sysfs (rw) tmpfs on /dev type tmpfs (rw, mode 755) none on /dev pwts type devpts (rw, mode-600)
01:51<dragonfly>ok, so we know it's not mounted.....
01:52<leocade>i used netbootin and HDmedia and i put the image on the flash drive too
01:52<dragonfly>leocade, try fdisk -l and that is the letter L not a 1....and see what the output of that is (should show us what partitions and disks you have)
01:52-!-fanta [] has quit [Quit: Saliendo]
01:52<leocade>i tried using syslinux but it returned errors so i ditched it
01:52<leocade>fdisk wont run from the installer
01:53<leocade>not found
01:53<leocade>and listing free space from bash only showed tmpfs
01:53<cthuluh>cat /proc/partitions
01:54-!-gil-galad [~imran@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
01:54<leocade>yeah.. i got a lot of partitions
01:54<cthuluh>lucky you 8)
01:54<DjKazik>Perhaps someone knows why I do not have a menu bar at the top?
01:55<mattcen>DjKazik: Probably because you've got a misconfigured Gnome config, or have deleted it.
01:55<leocade>okay so its either sdb, sdb1, sdc, sdc1. how do blocks convert to GB?
01:56<dragonfly>leocade, your flash drive is probably smaller than any other drive you have :)
01:56<DjKazik>mattcen, You know how to fix this?
01:56<leocade>i put swap at 4gigs
01:56<dragonfly>but is swap on it's own drive?
01:56<leocade>and the flash is 8 gigs
01:57<mattcen>DjKazik: The way *I* would fix it would be to delete the gnome config; that is if there's nothing in there that you don't want to lose. Is this a fresh installation?
01:57<cthuluh>here blocks are 1kB (in /proc/partitions)
01:57<leocade>i have a 1tb that i put swap on and a 250gb that i split into 2 and partitioned 150gb for linux
01:57<DjKazik>mattcen, yes
01:57<cthuluh>leocade: ok so you should find your usb drive easily
01:58<dragonfly>ok, so looking at the blocks, you should see sda sdb and sdc, the one with the fewest blocks is probably the flash drive
01:58<mattcen>DjKazik: And have you copied or re-used your home directory from somewhere else?
01:58<leocade>ok im gonna guess since 1kb is 1 block that sdc is the one im looking for
01:58<DjKazik>mattcen, yyy.... no :)
01:58<leocade>so try and mount with the new one?
01:58<DjKazik>im a child ^^
01:58<dragonfly>yeah, try mounting /dev/sdc1 to /cdrom
01:58<DjKazik>but i need linux on my dedicate server
01:59<cthuluh>leocade: mkdir /foo; mount /dev/sdc1 /foo
01:59<leocade>ah sweet i think thats what did it
01:59<leocade>i was under the impression that sdb was the default location of external devices since thats what i read on most forums
02:00<leocade>ah and now its coming up with problem reading data
02:00<cthuluh>leocade: it could be sdc , not sdc1
02:00<mattcen>DjKazik: I can't imagine why you have this problem then... Perhaps try something like: "mkdir ~/old; mv ~/.gnome* ~/old" in a terminal and then log out and back in
02:00<leocade>i tried sdc and it got passed the cdrom check
02:00<DjKazik>mattcen, ok. w8
02:00<leocade>should i check integrity?
02:01<cthuluh>yes, please do that
02:01<leocade>ah ok
02:01<leocade>i think it wants me to mount the iso
02:02<cthuluh>cd /foo && ls
02:02<DjKazik>mattcen, You can write to me exactly how I enter command in the terminal?
02:02<mattcen>Everything in those quotes in my last message
02:02<leocade>cthuluh: can't cd to /foo
02:03<mattcen>DjKazik: Do you know *anything* about linux commands? Or should I be explaining what that does?
02:03<cthuluh>leocade: you said that you had mounted /dev/sdc to /foo
02:03<cthuluh>leocade: did you?
02:03<DjKazik>mattcen, mkdir ~/old; mv ~/.gnome* ~/old ?
02:03<leocade>i mounted it to /cdrom
02:03<cthuluh>leocade: you shouldn't have
02:04<leocade>should i restart installation?
02:04<DjKazik>mattcen, mkdir: can not create directory `/ root / old ': File exists
02:04<DjKazik>mv: can not stat `/ root / .gnome * ': No such file or directory
02:04<cthuluh>leocade: are you ready to follow hints?
02:04<OsirisX>last night gnome-shell was removed from the debian repository - does anyone know why? (is gnome3-session the replacement?)
02:05-!-daniel [] has joined #debian
02:05-!-daniel [] has quit []
02:05<cthuluh>ok so umount /cdrom
02:05<leocade>unmount not found
02:05<dragonfly>umount not unmount
02:06<dragonfly>cthuluh, sorry, i think i led him astray...i suggested mounting to /cdrom because that is what he was trying to do bad
02:06<leocade>yeah i thought i saw it somewhere xD
02:06<cthuluh>leocade: is that ok?
02:06<cthuluh>dragonfly: np, dude
02:06<leocade>yeah it worked
02:06<cthuluh>mkdir -p /foo && mount /dev/sdc /foo
02:07<cthuluh>if you do 'ls /foo' you should see some files
02:07<mattcen>DjKazik: hmmm. It looks like there is already a file called old. So use a different filename. I've got to head off though. Try http:// or for some general Linux help.
02:08<leocade>ok. trying that command showed me that it was sdc1 and not sdc
02:08<leocade>yep i got it
02:08<leocade>any specific reason for the dir name foo?
02:08<mattcen>DjKazik: Your Gnome configuration will be stored in ~/.gnome* or ~/.gconf*, so if you shift those directories out of the way, I would hope that the problem goes away. What version of Debian are you using, and which language? I wonder if it doesn't like the language you're giving it...
02:08-!-JanC_ is now known as JanC
02:08<cthuluh>leocade: no, and then mount -o loop /foo/my.iso /cdrom
02:09<dragonfly>leocade, there is no reason behind foo other than it is a directory which is not likely to conflict with anything and can be removed could use aefxd if you wanted instead
02:09<cthuluh>yeah, I liked aefxd too, actually
02:10<DjKazik>mattcen, Debian 5.0 (lenny) | polish
02:11<mattcen>Hmmm. I'm not sure.
02:11<cthuluh>leocade: where 'my.iso' is the name of your real iso, of course
02:12<leocade>ok. i tried typing in the whole name of the iso and it returned "cannot setup loop device: no such file ore directory
02:12<dragonfly>leocade, sounds like we need to find the iso
02:12-!-jjavaholic [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
02:12<dragonfly>ls /foo/*.iso
02:12<leocade>so thinking maybe i made a mistake i couldnt spot i changed it to /foo/debian* /cdrom
02:12<cthuluh>leocade: use TAB to complete filenames. it prevents errors
02:13<dragonfly>cthuluh, I LOVE the TAB complete feature :)
02:13<leocade>and using debian* returned the same problem
02:13<cthuluh>oh wait, does ash support TAB completion? :|
02:13<DjKazik>mattcen, when i use command: ~/.gnome* or ~/.gconf i have response: "No such file or directory"
02:13<leocade>i got it with TAB
02:13<dragonfly>leocade, if ls /foo/*.iso doesn't show it to you, try ls /foo and see what directory it might be in
02:13<mattcen>DjKazik: That wasn't a command.
02:13<leocade>but same problem
02:14<DjKazik>mattcen, ups ;]
02:14<cthuluh>leocade: got to go. good luck
02:14<leocade>it says its there. i have a feeling theres a stupid mistake im doing
02:14<dragonfly>cthuluh, I'm not sure about ash supporting tab completion, but I also like the double-tab to show list of options :)
02:15<mattcen>Those were possible globs for directories that would contain your Gnome configuration. Perhaps flick through that reference at Flossmanuals I gave you to get started; before I can be much more help I think you need to understand how to work with the linux command line more.
02:15<mattcen>DjKazik: The only other thing you might like to try might be right-clicking where the menu should be and seeing if you can add one.
02:16<DjKazik>mattcen, i can't do enything
02:16<DjKazik>onlu sound button response
02:17<mattcen>Sorry, I don't think I can be of any more help.
02:17<dragonfly>DjKazik, it's a bit risky, but I have an idea that might help you do what mattcen has been trying to accomplish
02:18<DjKazik>dragonfly, i have nothing to lose
02:18<leocade>okay, i changed directory to /foo/ and tried and the same error, then i tried changing it to mount -o loop *iso /cdrom
02:18<leocade>and nothing
02:18<dragonfly>ok...well, first of all, are you on irc on the same box that you are trying to get working?
02:19<dragonfly>leocade, you don't want to use a wildcard in the mount command
02:19<leocade>i tried using TAB and typing out the name too
02:19<dragonfly>leocade, when you do "ls *.iso" do you see the iso file?
02:19<leocade>and it says cannot setup loop device: no such file or directory
02:20<dragonfly>and what is the name of that file?
02:20<MeglaW>ohh, wrong chan. OT
02:20-!-gil-galad [~imran@] has joined #debian
02:20<dragonfly>lol MeglaW, i was wondering what you were goin' on about :P
02:21<dragonfly>ok, leocade, so you want to do "mount -o loop debian-507-amd64-CD-1.iso /cdrom"
02:22<dragonfly>when we talk about tab, you can type mount -o loop debia<TAB> /cdrom and it *should* fill in the rest of that filename so you don't have to type it all...if it doesn't, let me know
02:22<leocade>same thing. could it be an error with the iso?
02:22<leocade>it did
02:22-!-DjKazik [~Pompka@] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
02:22<leocade>its not working anymore
02:22<dragonfly>ok :) ...I'm not exactly sure on the whole loop device thing, I've only had reason to use it a few times :S
02:23-!-DjKazik [~Pompka@] has joined #debian
02:23<DjKazik>dragonfly, you mean, ii have a irc on my serve? no, I write from a computer at home
02:23<leocade>changed dir
02:23<DjKazik>dragonfly, sorry for my english :)
02:24<dragonfly>it's ok DjKazik, I just want to make sure that I don't lose you while giving you instructions...long as you are on irc from a different machine than you are trying to fix then we should be ok
02:24<leocade>is it necessary for the -o loop? or could i try mounting without it?
02:24<dragonfly>, log out of the GUI on the machine that is broken (you are using gnome on there right?)
02:24<leocade>other times i've mounted successfully without it but i havent tried for cdrom
02:24<dragonfly>leocade, i'm not sure...go ahead and try it
02:25-!-bemawi [] has joined #debian
02:25<leocade>no dice
02:25<DjKazik>dragonfly, yes
02:25<dragonfly>DjKazik, ok so go to logout and let me know when you are back to the logon screen
02:25<DjKazik>at the moment I'm connected only by Putty
02:25<dragonfly>ok...even better :)
02:26-!-SQlvpapir [~teis@] has joined #debian
02:26<dragonfly>so, what mattcen was trying to help you do before is get rid of the gnome configuration so that when you log in it forces it to regenerate
02:26<leocade>okay. what i'm trying is to move it to different directory thats not on the usb drive
02:26<leocade>and mount it from there
02:27<DjKazik>dragonfly, ok i'm listening
02:27<dragonfly>DjKazik, I'm going to hope that the user you were ahving trouble with is NOT root...right?
02:27<dragonfly>leocade, go for it...I'm really just stabbing in the dark at this point :S
02:28<DjKazik>dragonfly, right
02:28<dragonfly>ok...and are you logged in as root in putty?
02:28-!-hugo [] has quit [Quit: hugo]
02:28<DjKazik>its my server and only i using him
02:28<dragonfly>that explains why the commands that mattcen was giving were not working :)
02:29<dragonfly>so, you are trying to log in to gnome (GUI) desktop on your server?
02:31-!-aranax [~aranax@] has quit [Quit: Saliendo]
02:31<DjKazik>i must using google translate sometimes ;]
02:31<leocade>dragonfly: same thing. im beginning to think its a problem with the .iso
02:32<dragonfly>leocade, it could be....if I may ask, what is your rationale for trying to do it this way rather than just burn the iso to a cd and boot from there?
02:32<DjKazik>I installed NX server and it works without a problem. The problem is with the upper bar is not working
02:32<leocade>i don't have cds xD
02:33<dragonfly>leocade, also...I tend to use the netinstall cds (smaller download) but I don't think there shoudl be any issues with that
02:33<DjKazik>dragonfly, like on this screen:
02:33<leocade>i tried using netinstall and i believe that i couldnt get it to install properly, grub wouldnt come up
02:33<leocade>and i tried f3 to check OS and there was only windows
02:34<leocade>then i tried to boot from the HD with the install on it
02:34<leocade>and it said something like couldn't boot
02:34<dragonfly>DjKazik, I was just surprised by using the graphical interface on a server....all my servers run without it :)'re not logged into the graphical right now, just putty right?
02:35<DjKazik>dragonfly, yes
02:35<dragonfly>leocade, you wouldn't happen to have a spare U3 compatible flash drive laying aroudn would you?
02:35<dragonfly> try "cd /home/<username>"
02:35<leocade>yeah. i believe so
02:36<dragonfly>where <username> is the user that you have problems when logging it as
02:36<DjKazik>ok im in
02:36<dragonfly>leocade, and when I mean spare i mean it doesn't have anything on it that you don't mind losing?
02:36<dragonfly>DjKazik, ok, after you did that, try "ls -a" and see if there is a folder called .gconf or .gnome
02:36-!-undurundur [~undurundu@] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
02:37<leocade>what would happen to it? xD
02:37<DjKazik>dragonfly, is gconf
02:38<dragonfly>leocade, and that you don't care about the U3 stuff that comes on the flashdrives? -- it's gonna go byebye :D
02:38<leocade>yeah i removed it a while ago
02:38<leocade>it got annoying lol
02:38<dragonfly>DjKazik, ok -- well, what mattcen was trying to have you do is just move that somewhere else, but since this is a fresh install and all we'll take more drastic measures -- just "rm -r .gconf" that will remove that directory and all the gnome settings for that account
02:39<leocade>dragonfly: ill brb. i have to get all the stuff off of it first
02:39<dragonfly>ok, well, some time ago i found a way to use the U3 partion for better things (like say make a bootable debian installer)
02:39<cthuluh>dragonfly: as in dragonflybsd?
02:40<DjKazik>dragonfly, I still have the gnome folder. Its also removed?
02:41<dragonfly>DjKazik is it .gnome?
02:41<dragonfly>cthuluh, no, haven't actually looked into that one
02:41<dragonfly>DjKazik, yeah, go ahead and rm -r that one as well
02:41-!-test is now known as anoteng
02:43<DjKazik>dragonfly, i have also .gnome2 and .gnome_private
02:43<DjKazik>gnome deleted
02:43<dragonfly>DjKazik, might be going a bit overboard, but delete those other two gnome ones as well
02:43<DjKazik>ls -s
02:44<dragonfly>ok, so DjKazik, you don't have any other .gnome folders in that user's home directory?
02:45<DjKazik>i dont see anything like gnome folder
02:45<DjKazik>its clear
02:45<DjKazik>whats now?
02:45<dragonfly>ok...then try to log back in as that user in the graphical way and see if the problem is fixed
02:46<leocade>if i use netinstall version of debian. would i be able to use lynx to log into a website?
02:46<DjKazik>i try reboot system firts
02:46<leocade>the school im at requires linux users to log into a website before using the internet
02:47<cthuluh>what about other OSes users?
02:47<leocade>cisco clean access
02:47<dragonfly>leocade, I'm not sure, but I would think you coudl be able to
02:48<leocade>getting linux on my netbook was a pain in the ass with no cd drive and not using an iso
02:48<cthuluh>leocade: though there's a well explained method in the official documentation
02:48<DjKazik>dragonfly, unfortunately the problem still exists
02:48<leocade>i used netinstall version and then just loaded up every single package that i needed to log in with a graphical web browser
02:49<leocade>that took hours and over 500 clicks
02:49<leocade>and then finally i was able to use apt-get xD
02:49-!-cahoot [~radix@] has joined #debian
02:50<cthuluh>leocade: you can install from USB. with the CD1 (645 MB). without needing to mount manually anything
02:51<cthuluh>leocade: but to achieve this, you have some work to be done
02:51<DjKazik>it looks like I'll have to go back to ubuntu ... I do not like ubuntu:)
02:51<leocade>ok i got the u3 flash drive
02:51-!-jcwu [] has joined #debian
02:51<cthuluh>leocade: did you keep the link I gave you?
02:52-!-phrosty [] has joined #debian
02:52<cthuluh>fine, read it and try to apply the 2nd method
02:52<dragonfly>otherwise, leocade, if you have a windows box to work from, you can use to load the debian iso into the fake cd part of the U3 flash drive and boot from that as though it were a cd
02:53<dragonfly>I used to have a linux version of the tool, but can't find a link to it at the moment
02:53<leocade>its okay. i seem to be having problems browsing me flash drive with dolphin
02:53<leocade>im not sure why
02:53<leocade>happened since i got this one running
02:54<leocade>so i have to do it from konsole :(
02:54<leocade>ah that didnt make much sense did it
02:54<DjKazik>dragonfly, It's probably too complicated for me.
02:55-!-byonk [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
02:55<leocade>was wondering if the auto mounting program would interfere with using it
02:55<dragonfly>DjKazik, I'm not sure why that wouldn't be working -- never experienced that
02:55-!-dutchfish_ [] has joined #debian
02:55<leocade>since it mounts to /media/cd
02:56-!-werty [~werty@] has joined #debian
02:56<dragonfly>leocade, that's the whole point -- since it automounts to cd (the computer detects it as a cdrom) you "burn" the iso to that portion of the drive and then with that flash drive plugged in your computer sees it as a cdrom with the debian installer in it
02:56<leocade>ah no it wasnt that. the u3 was removed a while ago
02:57<leocade>for some reason on my linux computer it automounts any usb drive to /media/cd
02:57<leocade>and i can never browse the contents visually but thats another problem
02:58<leocade>so i guess i have to install the u3 system again
02:58<dragonfly>leocade, no you shouldn't have to -- do you have a windows box to work from?

03:05<dragonfly>how are things going leocade
03:05<mattcen>DjKazik: I can only think of NX server getting in the way (if you're logging in through that), or it having an issue with your language settings. Perhaps (purely as a test) try switching the language to english?

03:06<leocade>i used your first link xD
03:07<DjKazik>mattcen, dragonfly Maybe I should use VNC, no NX...
03:07<dragonfly>lol, I can see if I have the linux version...I honestly don't remember where I found it
03:07<leocade>its only linux
03:07<leocade>on there
03:07<mattcen>DjKazik: Does the server have a screen and keyboard attached? If so, try logging in to Gnome through that first.
03:07<leocade>i guess i could try it through this
03:07<leocade>now the link you gave me was for linux
03:07<leocade>came in tar
03:08<DjKazik>mattcen, no
03:08<dragonfly>it should be u3-tool.exe
03:08-!-xayon [] has joined #debian
03:08<mattcen>DjKazik: Then perhaps try VNC instead; I highly suspect NX is causing issues; trying VNC may help determine this.

03:10<mattcen>I don't use NX either; I just picked up on the mention of it earlier. I've tried NX once, and seem to remember that it wasn't really complete.
03:10<dragonfly>hey, mattcen, does debian have an inbuild remote desktop server?
03:10<mattcen>I suspect Gnome installs Vino by default.
03:11<mattcen>I don't have a full desktop install handy, so can't confirm though. (I could have a look at dependencies in apt though... /me checks)

03:13<EmleyMoor>dragonfly: No problem logged, but cannot access any share other than a "guests allowed" one
03:13<leocade>ok dragonfly
03:14<mattcen>dragonfly: Well ultimately, Vino is VNC anyway, and only works when you're logged in locally; which can't be done easily without a keyboard or screen attached to the server.
03:14<leocade>dragonfly: i got u3-tool to my windows computer
03:14-!-xayon [] has joined #debian

03:15<dragonfly>mattcen, so there isn't a "true" remote desktop server (like I've used to administer windows boxes)?

03:19<dragonfly>ok leocade, first, we need to resize the u3 partition "u3-tool.exe -p 725000000" should give us a 725MB partition
03:19<leocade>i just downloaded it to try and get the installer working
03:19<leocade>should i specify the device name after -p?
03:19<dragonfly>oops...let me restate taht command "u3-tool.exe -p 725000000 <Drive Letter>:"
03:20<dragonfly>when that is done, "u3-tool.exe -l debian.iso <Drive Letter>:"
03:20<dragonfly>(assuming the debian iso is in the same directory as teh u3 tool)
03:20<leocade>is that 6 zeros?

03:24<leocade>not yet

03:25<leocade>okay will take a bit.

03:29<dragonfly>leocade, hmmm I've never had it error before :( -- try doing it again with a smaller size -- maybe like 10 million (seven zeros total) just to see what happens
03:29<leocade>but autorun popped up with debian amd64
03:29<leocade>and i checked the "cd" and it has what looks like all the files
03:29<dragonfly> it looks like it wrote it all?

03:33<dragonfly>darn mattcen, I was hoping there was something like that, just haven't had reason to need it yet
03:33<dragonfly>leocade, you shouldn't have had to do anything special...the u3-tool should have treated that drive as though it was a blank cd and extracted the iso into it with no special intervention on your part
03:33<dragonfly>...i bet it was because of that error message
03:34<dragonfly>plug that flash drive back into the windows box
03:34<leocade>there was 2 ub drives
03:34<EmleyMoor>Looks like that will do for this box
03:34<leocade>named the same thing
03:34<leocade>so i figured that 1 was the "cd"
03:34<dragonfly>lol EmleyMoor, just revert to an older config and call it good?
03:34<leocade>i had to try them both to see which was the cd 1 reported no operating system and the second loaded debian but then said this error when i went to install

03:35<dragonfly>well EmleyMoor, just add 1 thing back at a time and see where it breaks

04:27<leocade>but i still get errors some wicd error when i use apt-get to install a program
04:27<leocade>it lists something about a wicd package when i install any package
04:27<iKit>I see.
04:27<ompaul>leocade: so it is not "fixed", how since you started to install on that box?
04:27<iKit>Does linux automatically connect if it's connected via ethernet?
04:28<leocade>ompaul: im sorry im not understanding what you mean
04:28<ompaul>iKit: most of the time it will if not su - and dhclient may help if that fails it is because your network card is requiring non-free software
04:29*iKit was trying to get her WLAN on to go ahead and get everything ready.
04:29<ompaul>iKit: wired is always better for setup
04:29<dragonfly>ompaul, does leocade maybe need to aptitude -fix or -force or whatever one of those commands for wicd?
04:29<ompaul>leocade: when did you start working on that computer and how much stuff have you put on it
04:30<iKit>Well it's quite a hassle to carry an entire 10-year-old desktop next-door in the middle of the AM. lol
04:30<ompaul>dragonfly: well it would be nice to see the actual error
04:30<leocade>probably about a week ago

04:32<iKit>Hmm.. Would grabbing the package onto a stick and installing locally work? If so, how would I go about it?
04:32<leocade>ompaul: ill install something now and tell you the error
04:32<ompaul>leocade: debian looks after its own dependencies well, you have now got something broken, who knows what broke what where when and why given that you used random packages on the web, I'd nearly suggest reinstalling and coming here the second you have a problem now you know what you are trying to achieve
04:33<leocade>the packages were from one of debian's mirrors
04:33<dragonfly>leocade, it's not a matter of where the packages are from so much as how they are installed -- using aptitude install is ALWAYS the best way
04:33<ompaul>leocade: for the right version, the one you are using - these things (wicd) don't just break for one person
04:34<ompaul>leocade: there are so many debian installs planet wide it is not funny, and for yours to think it is special ... well I don't buy that :)
04:35<leocade>want to know what the error says? lol

04:40<leocade>yeah purge and install didnt do anything for the errors
04:40<dragonfly>ompaul, he's referring to u3-tool which I just walked him through using :)
04:41<leocade>is there a file list that i could remove entries that dpkg reads from?
04:41<leocade>or would that make things worse
04:41<ompaul>acknowledge as in syn ack or nack
04:42<Arrowmaster>although im not sure if your situation could get any worse
04:42<ompaul>leocade: given your luck so far you might find yourself worse off, as they are basically scripts for a working environment (/var/log/dpkg/info/package-name/

04:44<ompaul>leocade: see how passionate I am about this one hu? ;-)
04:44<dragonfly>besides leocade, should be easy this time even got your bootable flash drive to use for the install :P
04:45<dragonfly>ompaul, I just hate seeing a list of errors anytime I try to install something or run an update -- that would be enough for me to delve into fixing it :) -- after doing a good backup of course
04:45<ompaul>dragonfly: best back up is fresh media and your data :)
04:45-!-DjKazik [~Pompka@] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
04:46-!-iKit [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
04:46<leocade>its no problem
04:47<leocade>i probably made more errors due to not using aptitude before when i originally installed things on it
04:47<dragonfly>ompaul, by backup i meant: customized configs, data, and perhaps dpkg --get-selections
04:47<leocade>i was stuck on terminal and i was trying to figure out how to add local directories to sources.list and since i coulkdnt figure it out then i had to install everything from dpkg and look up the dependencies on my windows box, put it on the usb drive and rinse and repeate
04:47<ompaul>dragonfly: ahh :) that is a better backup :)
04:48<leocade>going on to the next problem:
04:48<leocade>i cant get my monitors working for the install i just did on my desktop
04:48<leocade>both were working fine for the install gui
04:48<leocade>but now one said unsupported and the other said no signal
04:49<ompaul>leocade: how many boxes are involved here?
04:49-!-erez [] has joined #debian

04:49<leocade>sorry. i was talking about my laptop when i was talking about wicd because the main problem i had when i came on here was trying to install linux with a usb drive
04:50<leocade>yeah on my desktop
04:50<ompaul>a monitor for each?
04:51<dragonfly>i'm going to guess that the desktop is dual screen
04:51<ompaul>dragonfly: the way the information is arriving I could not accept a guess ;-)
04:52<dragonfly>lol, agreed
04:52<ompaul>assumption is the mother of all discord
04:52-!-erez [] has quit []
04:52<ompaul>that was the thinking but I would have been a lot crasser if it was not for the fact this is the internet
04:53<leocade>okay: i swapped both monitors around 1 has HD and VGA outputs
04:53<leocade>and i tried them both
04:53-!-Jussi [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
04:53<leocade>and i have two inputs in my card and the second monitor whci his vga only is the only thing that responded
04:53<leocade>by saying it wasnt supported
04:53<dragonfly>leocade, monitors generally don't have HD or VGA outputs - the screen is the output :)
04:53<leocade>the other one remained sleep
04:54<leocade>my bad other way around then
04:54-!-kingsley [] has joined #debian
04:54<dragonfly>anyway -- i find it strange that they would work fine with the GUI install but not when you reboot after -- hmmmm
04:55<leocade>vga and hd input for 1 and vga input for the other and the card has two dvi outputs

04:56<dragonfly>no worries, just a future reference thing
04:56<dragonfly>leocade, do you have an onboard video card or just a pci one with the dual outputs?
04:58-!-faheem [] has joined #debian
04:58<leocade>i have an onboard. i was thinking about that too
04:59-!-jcwu [] has joined #debian
04:59<dragonfly>just for kicks, plug one in to there and see if you get anything -- perhaps the pci one needs to be configured yet (i would think it would have been automatically but ya never know)

05:04<leocade>it loads up and then beeps
05:05<leocade>sorry i just meant scratch that statement
05:05<leocade>it loads into terminal
05:05<leocade>then scrolls
05:05<dragonfly>with the onboard?
05:05<leocade>then the screen flickers and it goes black
05:05<leocade>nope from pci
05:05-!-vizor [~vizor@] has joined #debian
05:05<leocade>onboard it doesnt work at all
05:06<leocade>so im guessing id have to remove the video card to get anything out of the onboard
05:06<dragonfly>ok...but you at least see something with the pci card now? on just 1 monitor?
05:06<leocade>yeah but after it scrolls through terminal i dont see anything
05:06<leocade>and get input not supported
05:06-!-jcwu [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
05:06<leocade>my guess is that its a problem with the gui?

05:07<dragonfly>try ALT+F1
05:07<dragonfly>does that take you back to a terminal?
05:07<leocade>but i did alt ctrl f4
05:07<leocade>and it got me to terminal
05:07<leocade>and i can see it again
05:07<dragonfly>ok, that's what it is...sorry, i'm quite tired nwo
05:07<leocade>no problem. thanks for helping me out
05:08<dragonfly>so it's sounding like your gui needs to be reconfigured -- maybe ompaul can help us out here, but I think it would be something like dpkg-reconfigure xorg
05:08<leocade>i dont think both buttons were necessary but they were taking a bit so i thought it might have changed so i was mashing buttons
05:09<dragonfly>i think it is supposed to be ctrl+alt+F<1-6>
05:09<ompaul>leocade: had you got a gui previously
05:09<leocade>during install
05:09<leocade>both monitors worked
05:09<ompaul>leocade: install does not count :)
05:09<dragonfly>but u did have gui during the install or was it the text "pseudo-gui"
05:09<leocade>then no
05:09<leocade>this is the first time im booting it up
05:10-!-Sydney [] has joined #debian
05:10<Sydney>hello, everyone...
05:10<dragonfly>hi Sydney
05:11<ompaul>leocade: so you installed and you have no gui at all
05:11<Sydney>I'm trying to install a broadcom driver, but experiencing some problems...
05:11<leocade>no just terminal. when it goes to gui the monitor says input not supported
05:11<Sydney>the laptop has a BCM4313 wireless + bluetooth device
05:11<ompaul>leocade: at a guess we might start with a display manager try apt-get update && apt-get install kdm (or gdm if you want gnome)
05:12*dragonfly prefers gnome
05:12<dpkg>The Broadcom BCM4313 (PCI-ID 14e4:4727, incorrectly reported as BCM4727 by wlc_hybrid) is an 802.11n PCIe wireless LAN chipset, not supported by the <b43> driver. For support on Debian systems, ask me <brcm80211>, <wl>.
05:12<ompaul>dragonfly: you don't know what you're missing :)
05:12<Sydney>the wireless part function greatly with the open bcm80211 drivers, but I was not able to abilitate the bluetooth stack
05:12<leocade>i would need to install some type of browser to log into my schools internet
05:12<dragonfly>leocade, is lynx available?
05:13<dragonfly>i think it might be
05:13-!-kangdong [~kangdong@] has joined #debian

05:13<ompaul>leocade: please don't divert from the task in hand have you installed kdm / gdm or some such?
05:13<dragonfly>leocade, we don't want to go down that path unless we absolutely have to -- remember your Eee
05:14<leocade>nope i havent
05:14<Sydney>thanks for the links, qq- but the problem isn't the wireless itself, but the bluetooth part, which is integrated in the same device...
05:14<ompaul>leocade: is this machine connected by wire to the internet?
05:14<dragonfly>leocade, like ompaul suggests -- do u already have it (apt-cache policy gdm / apt-cache policy kdm)
05:14-!-erez [] has joined #debian
05:14<leocade>one second but i can get it
05:15<qq->Sydney, i see
05:15<dragonfly>ompaul, connected by wire to a network, but not able to access the internet without entering credentials into a webpage (captive portal)
05:15<ompaul>dragonfly: ohh dear
05:15<ompaul>hardly optimal
05:15<Sydney>the wireless goes flawless with the open drivers, while it's a bit harder to configure with the wl ones...
05:16<Sydney>but none of them seems to enable the bluetooth...
05:16<leocade>ompaul: ok now it is. i didnt configure anything during install for the network
05:17<dragonfly>leocade, you have internet access (aptitude works) or just access to the schools network so you could log in to the captive portal?
05:17<ompaul>leocade: let me understand what you did here, you installed the network install CD while not connected to the internet?
05:17<leocade>i installed a distribution cd from debians website
05:17<dragonfly>ompaul, he used debian-507-amd64-CD-1.iso
05:18<leocade>surprised you remembered that xD
05:18<dragonfly>...i scrolled up :P
05:18<ompaul>leocade: ok, do this as root: dhclient : and tell me the very last line before the prompt
05:18<dragonfly> there a list of what packages are on that cd? maybe we can install lynx from the cd repository
05:19<qq->!cd contents

06:09<Sydney>hello, again...
06:10<Sydney>don't shoot at me, but I'd be looking for some other help with compiz, this time...:P
06:11<Sydney>it is driving me mad, as the previous install, it worked without any major problem...while, this time, it always gives me this error "Application calling GLX 1.3 function "glXCreatePixmap" when GLX 1.3 is not supported!

07:44<ceipha>Hi! I keep getting the notification that I am short of disk space, although I've just installed another 1TB drive and moved the home partition to it. I notice that it more probably happens when the Iceweasel is running for some long time, but there may be no correlation. Any ideas what it can be? I have this problem both home and at work.
07:45<nevyn>how big is your /tmp

08:05<Sydney> hello, again...anyone's up for helping a debian noob with a compiz/mesa related problem?
08:05<ceipha>nevyn: I did checked all my . and not . files for size. That's the problem. The space seems to be occupied by something that is not files :)
08:05-!-dell [~dell@] has joined #debian
08:05<nevyn>ceipha: that's also doable.
08:06<dpkg>Please do not ask if anyone can help you, knows 'something' or uses 'some_program'. Instead, ask your real question. (If the real question _was_ "does anyone use 'some_program'?" ask me about <popcon> instead.) See <ask> <ask to ask> <polls> <search> <sicco> <smart questions>.
08:06<nevyn>ceipha: if you create a file then delete it you can still hold the handle to it and read and write data from it.
08:06<Sydney>the error is "Application calling GLX 1.3 function "glXCreatePixmap" when GLX 1.3 is not supported! This is an application bug!" when trying to run compiz --replace..
08:06<ceipha>nevyn: how to check whether it is the case?
08:06<nevyn>ceipha: with difficulty...
08:06<dell>games for linux
08:07<Sydney>I suppose it is a problem with mesa as the glxinfo returns a mix of 1.2/1.3 versions...
08:07<Sydney>have an intel hd video card, so installing nvidia drivers isn't a solution...
08:07-!-dell [~dell@] has quit []
08:08<DjKazik> to start gnome panel ? My bar doesn't work :(
08:08<ceipha>nevyn: I believe it can be the case. As I told, it happens after Iceweasel has been running for a long time. If not, everything seems to be allright.
08:08<Sydney>I have checked around internet for similar situation, but honestly haven't got a clue on how to act...
08:09<ceipha>nevyn: I think it may have to do with caching and stuff, but honestly have no idea how to check for it.

10:58<ompaul>chaos: in that case I have only the follows words, the fact that it is running at all is surprising, please choose lenny or squeeze and reinstall you are just burying yourself in more trouble
10:59<chaos>well.. i would really hate to reinstall.. how is that any better than windblows?
10:59<ompaul>chaos: you should only have one version in your sources.list and I don't know if you are in a position to dist-upgrade out of the trouble you are now in, I would doubt it
11:00<ompaul>chaos: doing it the debian way is to do a dist-upgrade from version n to version n+1 not trying to maintain a mix of n-1 n and n+1
11:00<ompaul>chaos: the latter offers you what you have in your nick
11:00<chaos>but since i have testing mixed in ... what's "n+1" i can run forward to?
11:01<ompaul>testing only
11:01<chaos>right now i only have testing set as source
11:01<ompaul>try to dist-upgrade to that
11:02<chaos>but dist-upgrade doesn't fix it
11:02<chaos>i tried that a month or so ago
11:02<ompaul>cos you broke it
11:02<chaos>obviously ....

11:03<ompaul>you get to keep the pieces I guess, go get a squeeze install CD back up your data and don't make that mistake again
11:03<chaos>that would be easy... if the box wasn't 4 countries away :P
11:04<ompaul>chaos: talk to the isp
11:04<chaos>it's still a damn hassle to get an usb stick in it and kvm

11:08<chaos>i can't afford to have the box down for hours let alone days
11:08<ompaul>well clean up your sources.list so that testing is the only thing in there

14:18<dentifrice>babilen: I confirm - my other laptop uses the default, font is "Sans - Regular - 10", and it looks like "Sans - Regular - 6" on the new install
14:18<dentifrice>is there anything that could affect it this way?

15:04<felixs>edbian: it reminds me of some sort of pascal, but i'm not so sure.
15:04<Lethalman>edbian, smalltalk uses it
15:05<edbian>felixs, in pascal : is an declaration = is an assignment so := is both perhaps?

15:17<dpkg>[rtl8168d] The Realtek RTL8168D Ethernet controller is supported by <r8169> since Linux 2.6.31. v1 support was backported and enabled at linux-2.6 2.6.26-21. Firmware for v1 and v2 (rtl8168d-1.fw, rtl8168d-2.fw) is not packaged due to no clear redistribution permission (BTS #561309, #564628); these files are not required for device operation.
15:17<dpkg>[rtl-wifi] the Realtek Linux 802.11b/g wireless LAN drivers, included in mainline Linux kernels. Supports the RTL8180, RTL8185 and RTL8187 chipsets; RTL8187B supported as of Linux 2.6.27. Drivers do not require firmware from userspace. See for more information. For support of the RTL8187SE chipset, ask me about <rtl8187se>. For support of Realtek 802.11n devices, ask me about <rtl819x>.

16:26<ansgar>Darth_Revan: In a chroot environment. sbuild or pbuilder can help too. Also #debian-mentors might be of more help.
16:26<zaytsev>Or maybe I should go to #debian-devel
16:26<tuxcrafter>mv --verbose /etc/rc5.d/S02winbind /etc/rc5.d/S04winbind
16:26<tuxcrafter>is that save
16:26<tuxcrafter>or should i use a systool for it?
16:26<Darth_Revan>ansgar: only in chroot?
16:27<Darth_Revan>maybe, there is somthing like cross-compiler?
16:27<zaytsev>Darth_Revan, what is your problem with chroot? you want to pollute your base system with i386 packages?

17:22<dpkg>Update a non-networked computer using apt and removable media. Just aptitude install apt-zip and read the docs in /usr/share/doc/apt-zip, or ask me about <apt offline> <apt-walkabout>.
17:22<jhutchins_lt>apt offline
17:23<jhutchins_lt>!apt offline
17:23<dpkg>To use apt on a machine that doesn't have a network connection (if you have a separate machine that does have a network connection), read Ask me about <apt-zip><apt-walkabout>.
17:23<leocade>and that requires me to downlaod packages manually and put them on the usb drive?
17:23<jhutchins_lt>leocade: At the very least you could download just the lynx deb and install it, then see what dependencies it wants.
17:24<jhutchins_lt>leocade: Yes, but only the packages you need. You already have a partial system.
17:25<leocade>okay. thanks
17:25<jhutchins_lt>In fact, if you share the download folder you can use samba to install directly from the windows machine.
17:26<jhutchins_lt>You might also be able to use window internet connection sharing - I don't know much about it, haven't really used windows since w95.

19:35<dpkg>The Debian Reference will answer most of your questions about Debian. The latest version (v2) is at . Read it after installing Debian and before asking for support, as it is the closest thing Debian has to a manual. You can install this too, the package name is debian-reference: 'aptitude install debian-reference'

21:29<leocade>cthuluh: after pulling my hair out with more help from here i've decided to try a different cd with lynx on it and try to connect to the internet for apt-get
21:29<cthuluh>this is the kind of things that happen, I guess
21:31<kd123>anyone have any wodim advice?? lol
21:32<babilen>woden: Well, your internet connection (or rather your DNS) is not working correctly
21:32<babilen>kd123: always simulate before you burn
21:33<kd123>babilen: you mean test the write before you actually write it?
21:34<babilen>kd123: yes (you asked for random wodim advice, don't expect something substantial)
21:36<babilen>but i have the feeling that you have a different problem though
21:36<woden>kd123, aptitude install wodim
21:36<kd123>lol :D
21:36<babilen>woden: so, your name resolution is not working ... can you ping?
21:37<babilen>e.g. "ping" or "ping" ?
21:37<kd123>wodim is throwing opc errors when I try to write to a cd-rw disk... but wodim works fine with dvd+r
