00:03<johnc>Hey, can anyone point me to resources on why I CAN boot an install image but I CAN'T boot a debian image from my USB stick onto my netbook?
00:07<Hydroxide>johnc: what we can do is help you boot debian from your USB stick onto your netbook, assuming your netbook can boot from USB at all
00:07<Hydroxide>or find another way to boot
00:08<johnc>Yes it can
00:08<johnc>it can boot's install image just fine
00:08<Hydroxide>ok, then we can help you boot debian from USB if you want
00:09<johnc>but debian 5.0.7's it doesn't load with the same BIOS setup and everything
00:09<Hydroxide>tell us what you tried so far
00:09<johnc>I have archlinux installed on my laptop r/n
00:09<johnc>But I'd prefer debian of course ;)

00:09-!-wangfei [~chatzilla@] has joined #debian
00:09<Hydroxide>I mean, tell us what you have tried about booting debian from usb
00:09<Hydroxide>how did you prepare the usb stick?
00:09<johnc>dd if=~/Downloads/debian-507-i386-netinst.iso of=/dev/disk1 bs=1m
00:10<johnc>That's how I copied it on from my Macbook Pro shell console
00:10<Hydroxide>ah. no, that doesn't work with lenny. it will with squeeze (the upcoming release) IIRC
00:10<Hydroxide>iso images aren't generally bootable directly from usb sticks
00:10<johnc>yeah huh
00:10<johnc>good to at least know that! :)
00:10<Hydroxide>only ones prepared with isohybrid are, since they also have a MS-DOS partition table
00:11<kop>johnc: (You might want to use squeeze anyway. It does not have the security support that lenny has, but it will when it goes stable and you won't have to upgrade.)
00:11<Hydroxide>johnc: squeeze will be doing that for its netinstall isos, but lenny didn't. there is an image you can download and dd to the stick though.
00:11<Hydroxide>johnc: or you can follow kop's suggestion and install squeeze directly, which will become stable in a matter of weeks.
00:11<kop>johnc: See the installation guide for how to install lenny from a usb stick.
00:11<kop>Hydroxide: For some value of "weeks". :-)
00:12<johnc>so squeeze is a command utility?
00:12<Hydroxide>kop: at this point, I think saying "weeks" is accurate
00:12<Hydroxide>johnc: no, squeeze is the upcoming release of debian
00:12<kop>Hydroxide: I'd guess so too, but....
00:12<Hydroxide>kop: I didn't put a number, but it's in the single digits
00:12<Hydroxide>kop: (probably)
00:12<kop>!tell johnc about overview
00:12<johnc>well I'm willing to take the plunge into squeeze and give it a try
00:12<Hydroxide>johnc: in that case, go here:
00:13<Hydroxide>johnc: I believe -- though I am not 100% certain -- that the i386 netinst iso will work with the preparation you described on a usb stick
00:13-!-manphiz [] has quit [Quit: ajax IRC Client]
00:14<johnc>invaluable pointers guys, thanks so much :)
00:14<Hydroxide>johnc: that release candidate of the installer was released five days ago (the 12th) - it should mostly work fine, but do report any problems so that we can fix them before release :)
00:14-!-bluetiki [] has joined #debian
00:14<Hydroxide>you're welcome. good luck!
00:14<johnc>cheers! :)
00:14-!-aka_raidel21 [] has joined #debian
00:14<kop>johnc: Note that debian does upgrade well, fwiw. Good luck.
00:15<johnc>debian is the best managed distro of course ;)
00:15<Hydroxide>kop: yes, though it's important to follow the release notes' upgrade instructions. there are sometimes some gotchas, but obeying the release notes usually avoids them
00:15<Hydroxide>kop: (many of the gotchas are due to how fast the kernel/udev world and the desktop infrastructure world move, none of which is debian-specific
00:15<kop>Hydroxide: It's amazing that many people don't follow the upgrade instructions. I've no clue why they think they know how to do it themselves.
00:16<Hydroxide>kop: most people remember "apt-get update; apt-get dist-upgrade" from years ago and haven't noticed the vast changes in linux since then
00:16<amitz>kop: we often manage in our vcr without manual book ;-)
00:16<kop>Hydroxide: (I am also currently advertizing <overview>, because many people think "Debian does not have the software I 'need'."
00:16<Hydroxide>kop: and that knowledge has gotten passed down to newer users who are less likely to know how to fix the rough edges.
00:17<Hydroxide>I should look at that factoid :) will request it now
00:17<kop>Hydroxide: /msg dpkg overview
00:17<amitz>there is aptitude safe-upgrade recently :-)
00:17<Hydroxide>kop: I just did
00:17<kop>!tell Hydroxide about msg the bot
00:17<Hydroxide>kop: looks good :)
00:18<Hydroxide>kop: no need to tell me - I would hope that as a chanop I would be aware of dpkg factoids :)
00:18<Hydroxide>but thanks
00:18<kop>Hydroxide: Oops. Thought you were asking. :/
00:18<Hydroxide>no worries
00:19-!-manphiz [] has joined #debian
00:19<kop>Hydroxide: I also put in a wishlist bug to have some sort of reference to the <overview> information in the install guide. The only response I got was that that'd be neigh impossible to translate in time. We'll see....
00:20-!-aka_raidel21 [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
00:20-!-aka_raidel21 [] has joined #debian
00:21<Hydroxide>kop: at this point, it's possible that that's true, given how many languages there are and how imminent squeeze is. it might be possible to add that to the manual in the first point release (I'm not sure if that's allowed mid-cycle), or at the very latest for wheezy
00:22<kop>Hydroxide: I get it. It's a shame though.
00:22<Hydroxide>kop, johnc: I seem to be correct about the isohybrid support (i.e. dd of .iso files to USB) being included in d-i squeeze RC1:
00:23<Hydroxide>kop: ya.
00:23*smv would like to know if there is any support for aes-xts in d-i
00:23<bluetiki>so is squeeze going to have another rc or is it just going to be the stable release
00:24<Hydroxide>if it didn't make it into RC1, then almost certainly any future relases
00:24-!-Slydder1 [] has joined #debian
00:24<Hydroxide>bluetiki: depends on how it goes, like with most release candidates :)
00:24-!-dominick [~dominick@] has joined #debian
00:24<Hydroxide>(for any product)
00:24<johnc>re: isohybrid --- nice :)
00:24-!-dominick is now known as Guest520
00:26<Hydroxide>smv: I have no idea, sorry. check the manual or other available info. it's definitely customizable enough to add on the support if it's not there, though it won't be included in an official squeeze installer in that case. it can always be in a custom-built squeeze installer, and possibly in the official one for the next release.
00:26<johnc>Confirmed booting
00:26<Hydroxide>johnc: yay :)

00:43<smv>Hydroxide, heh, did a wiki page about a year ago, combined with other things too. didn't publicized it though (just mentioned it on irc a few times), because it's still too awkward. should rewrite it someday, beacause some things have changed.
00:45<smv>wouldn't have mention it again, but the whole previous install discussion reminded me about it.

01:02<Hydroxide>and generalize, too
01:02<Hydroxide>smv: anyway, cool, and good luck!

03:32<macarthur>is there any easy way to set the compiler threshold via make so that i don't have to go back and forth between gcc and g++?
03:34<jm_>what do you mean?
03:35-!-munga [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
03:37<macarthur>i was going to compile firefox and i wanted to make sure ithat it compiled with -03 instead of -0S i believe it said since i want it to be as optimized as possible and i don't care if the end file size is larger

03:47-!-ant [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
03:49-!-mode/#debian [+l 427] by debhelper

03:59-!-minishooter [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
04:00<macarthur>the build system would be Debian Sid x86-x64, and i just previously did a ./configure and the only thing i saw about the compiler optimizations was an -02 i tseemed.

04:00<jm_>no I mean build system of the app, is it GNU autoconf etc.
04:00-!-john_ [~redbox@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
04:01<macarthur>i just typed ./configure and then i'd be doing make. It's the autoconf that comes with debian and states The standard for FSF source packages.
04:02<jm_>in that case see above
04:03-!-fad [~fad@] has joined #debian
04:03<jm_>also read: ./configure --help
04:04<dondelelcaro>macarthur: first off, -Os is likely to be faster than -O3; secondly, why aren't you just using the Debian packages?
04:04-!-fad [~fad@] has left #debian []
04:06<macarthur>it's 3.5.x and i have gotten tired of swiftfox randomly crashing on me, and i don't feel like going down in speed to normal firefox since it's usually a bit slower as far as efficiency.
04:08<dondelelcaro>we distribute 3.6.X as well as 3.5.X
04:09-!-themill [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
04:09<macarthur>iceweasel is 3.5.12 i believe. And that's what is installed on my system and thus it was kinda boring. That's what is there and thus it felt sluggish. The other part is the swiftfox feels faster or well normally did but after i've used it for awhile it crashes randomly.

10:41<babilen>msferoz85: No problem. I was a bit surprised, but meh ;)
10:41<dominick>not workstation.
10:42<dominick>fiqria, what is it?
10:42<satish>k.. but the instruments themselves need to contact some sort of server machine...
10:42<satish>otherwise who ll process their vxml pages??
10:42<fiqria>i did not knew that to work ala properly user must be in a alsa's group :)
10:42<dominick>no. They have ethernet sockets. You just plug your lan wire. :D
10:43<satish>the browser has to b present in sum machine...

10:43<babilen>msferoz85: What caused that error?
10:44-!-ladoga [] has joined #debian
10:44<satish>and wat number wud u call to get the service??
10:44<msferoz85>babilen usr/bin/gnome-app-install
10:44<dominick>satish, the browser is present in the server. When you connect the VoIP instrument to LAN, it aquires an IP address, which identifies it over the network. Then you can dial to the server, which can be preassigned a number, from that phone.
10:44-!-mattcen_ [] has joined #debian
10:44<dominick>because this phone is assigned an Ip address, it is called Voice over IP.
10:45<satish>oh ok :)
10:45<dominick>and PSTN cards start at Rs. 1800.

10:46<dominick>we are not starting a company, so a basic hardware will be sufficient
10:46<fiqria>i have got the same error :((
10:47<dominick>fiqria, is sound working with other users?
10:47<babilen>msferoz85: Ah, ok. You are probably missing "python-dbus" (which is a dependency of gnome-app-install). Note that gnome-app-install is obsolete. If you are looking for a GUI to install/remove software you might want to look into synaptics.
10:47<fiqria>does it need to
10:47<fiqria>be restarted
10:47<fiqria>the whole system ?
10:47<dominick>you need to relogin after you add yourself to a group.

10:49-!-gusnan [] has quit [Quit: Lämnar]
10:49<msferoz85>babilen synaptic looks a bit complicated to me. if gnome-app-install is obsolete, what is the alternative GUI equivalent of ubuntu's software center? apparently assume gnome-app-install is the thing that is in the menu as "Add/Remove Applications", no?
10:49<babilen>msferoz85: But a lot of people prefer to work on the command line with aptitude, apt-get or wajig. You might want to look into that as well. But to solve your problem: Run "aptitude reinstall gnome-app-install" and show me the output of "aptitude show python-dbus" and "apt-cache policy python-dbus gnome-app-install"
10:49<babilen>,versions software-center
10:49<dominick>we can start right away, as configuration is the only task. I can even do it overnight, and this channel and #asterisk on will help you if you want to configure.

10:50<babilen>msferoz85: But it looks as if your gnome-app-install installation is somehow broken.

I will, however, be away for some time, but other people in this channel will probably be able to help you as well.
10:57<fiqria>thats why i had to add home directory and other stuff manually

11:09<dominick>hi satish. dpkg can tell you about ekiga.
11:09<dpkg>Ekiga (formerly GnomeMeeting) is a H.323 and SIP compatible VoIP client, that supports video chat and is mostly compatible with the proprietary program NetMeeting. #ekiga on
11:09<satish>k thats good...
11:09-!-vasudev [~vasudev@] has joined #debian
11:10<satish>k dpkg!!!
11:10<babilen>fiqria: use "adduser USERNAME GROUP" (for example "adduser fiqria sound") -- You probably want to add the user to some other groups as well. -- /msg dpkg desktop groups -- another thing you should consider is modifying the default groups for new user by editing /etc/adduser.conf EXTRA_GROUPS (uncomment that)
11:10<satish>so we can use this client instead of a VoIP phone???
11:10<dominick>!say no problem
11:10<dpkg>no problem
11:11<dominick>satish, yes.
11:11<dominick>we may eventually buy a VoIP phone for your demo
11:11<satish>fine wat about the VXML browser??/
11:11<satish>oh cool :)
11:11<ladoga>fiqria: i think that being in audio group should be enough.. what you had in pastebin confirmed you have that allright
11:12<dominick>I haven't got too deep, but Asterisk can be configured to use VXML.
11:12<babilen>fiqria: You also have to logout and login in order to "activate" the new groups. (There is a way to activate them, but logout and login is probably easier and less error-prone)
11:12<fiqria>okay i will try
11:13<satish>k ekiga seems really cool...
11:13<babilen>satish: :-)
11:13<satish>so since the client problem is solved if we use ekiga shall we move to the problem of vxml browser
11:13<dominick>satish, also try twinkle, it's a pure SIP phone for VoIP, with no other fancy stuff.

11:43<babilen>You could file an RFP and wait for somebody else to package it. If you want your own package included you need a sponsor who is willing to upload your package.
11:43<dpkg>Request For Package is the way to ask for a piece of software to be included in Debian. See, the section on that page "Adding new entries with "reportbug"" is a good place to start. Technically, RFP is a wishlist bug filed against "wnpp" with a title beginning "RFP: ", ask me about <wnpp>.
11:43<dpkg>it has been said that rfs is Request For Sponsor, frequently used in the debian-mentors mailing list as a request from would-be Debian maintainers to find someone who will sponsor their package.
11:43<dpkg>The New Maintainer's Guide (, Developer's Reference and Policy document how packages should be made and how they should interact with each other. Ask me about <package basics>, <mentors>, <policy>, <best practices> or see ,
11:43<dpkg>i guess mentors is the system the Debian project uses to train new people to become Debian Developers or Debian Maintainers and get their packages into the Debian archive. Ask me about <nmg>. #debian-mentors on

12:54<sret>when i try to use irc with ssl
12:55<sret>i keep getting a negotiation failed
12:55<sret>any ideas? is debian blocking something by default?
12:55<retrospectacus>sret: try to remember, the enter key is not punctuation
12:55<cahoot>maybe you provide too many <enter>?
12:56-!-nadir [] has left #debian [Leaving]
12:56<Strtrks>And im trying to find out what can i delete from the installed system, its too big
12:56<sret>if i telnet to the server, it connects and then disconnects saying connection closed by foreign host
12:57<sney>Strtrks: any gui that installed by default can be removed and there's probably a smaller option
12:57<Strtrks>Retro, lol, no
12:58<sret>any ideas on how to accept ssl conenctions in debian?
12:58<sney>sret: debian is not blocking anything by default unless you're using iptables
12:58<sney>sret: more likely it's your router or something silly your ISP decided to do
12:58-!-debalance [~debalance@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
12:58<retrospectacus>sret: telnet is not an irc client. Also not all IRC server support SSL.
12:59<sney>that too, although oftc does
12:59-!-cloud [~IRC@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
12:59<catsup>sney: so you telnet tothe SSL port and make a connection?
13:00<sret>sney: well my oruter or ISP couldnt be blocking it because, the server works on my windows machines
13:00<sney>catsup: no, I don't encrypt my irc connections.
13:00<catsup>uh what
13:00<sret>i have iptables installed but im not sure debian is using it now, i havent changed it or touched it, it's sitting in the default rules that came with it.
13:01<catsup>i meant to point that question to sret
13:01<catsup>sret: so you telnet tothe SSL port and make a connection?
13:01-!-phrosty [] has joined #debian
13:01<sret>catsup: yeah i telneted over to the SSL server and their port and it said connection cloed by foreign host
13:01<catsup>sret: then your connection isn't being blocked at the firewall level
13:02-!-davyg [] has joined #debian
13:02<sret>right, debian is doing something then
13:02<catsup>unless it's blocking traffic and not connections, which is pretty damn unlikely
13:02<catsup>it's an issue with your irc client
13:02<catsup>which is what?

You can always try to downgrade a package using dpkg -i <olderversion.deb>. See also <partial downgrade>, <unstable->testing>, <sdo>.
14:58<ballison>there's no way to make it install the older version ?

14:58<sret>thanks, just another thing, if this file is associated under the name foo, and i change it to foo1, what about the rest fo the dirs where foo resides, how do i make an overall change for that file foo to foo1?

15:04<sret>i reinstalled epic4 from the source
15:04<sret>and its called epic now
15:04*babilen should have known
15:04<sret>the deb pkg epic4 i installed previously is still resigning in the machine
15:04<sret>in /usr/share/epic4
15:04<jordanm>awesome, and you used a /usr prefix
15:05<sret>wen i did a configure i did a prefix=usr
15:05<jordanm>sret: manually compiled software should use --prefix=/usr/local instead
15:05<babilen>sret: You shouldn't do that. /usr/local is meant for local installations.
15:05<babilen>!tell sret -about usrlocal

15:06-!-mc68040 [] has joined #debian
15:06<jordanm>sret: so it doesn't conflict with system files or packages
15:07<jordanm>you likely overwrote package files with your installation, specifically in /usr/share

15:11<sret>because i didnt want it, apparently debian's epic4 pkg has no openssl support
15:11<babilen>What are you *really* trying to do? Why do you compile epic manually? And why do you want to overwrite system files? Note that your actions do not make sense and there is definitely a better way. You just have to tell us what you are trying to achieve.
15:12<sret>and that's why my ssl connection wasn't working.
15:12<sret>babilen: to test if epic4 from the deb pkgs was mucked up or epeic in itself
15:12<babilen>sret: Then tell us that. There are ways to recompile Debian packages without resorting to manual installations. And really shouldn't ever think about installing manually compiled software to /usr
15:13<babilen>!package recompile
15:13<dpkg>1) Add a <deb-src> line for your current release to your sources.list 2) aptitude update; aptitude install build-essential devscripts fakeroot; aptitude build-dep packagename 3) as any user, apt-get source packagename 4) cd packagename-version/; ask me about <debian/rules>; 5) dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot -uc -us 6) as root, dpkg -i ../packagename-version.deb. Ask me about <debian/rules>, <nocheck>, <apt-get source>.

15:14<sret>i built epic from source code, after installing libssl-dev and libcurses5-dev, and it worked perfectly"
15:14<babilen>sret: So, you can either recompile the original Debian package with the compile options you want. Or remove the Debian package and install your manually compiled epic to /usr/local. I recommend the first way.

15:15<babilen>sret: Please remove your manual installation ("make uninstall" hopefully) and the Debian package. Then recompile the Debian package as explained by dpkg above. If you have problems doing that, let us know and don't just do something that will break your system eventually.

16:05<babilen>sret: You can compile everything by hand if you want that, but one important thing about using a distribution is that they actually do a lot of work for you. Compiling sources from upstream is typically only needed on Debian if the software in questions has not yet been packaged for Debian. If you are OTOH unhappy with some compile flags of a Debian package it is a much better idea to recompile the Debian packages after you've adapted debian/rules ...

19:37-!-magyar [] has joined #debian
19:37<dpkg>To fix your /etc/resolv.conf: edit /etc/dhcp{,3}/dhclient.conf to include the nameservers you want to use (ask me about <override dns>). Alternatively, use <resolvconf> and specify the nameservers yourself: echo -e "nameserver a.b.c.d\nnameserver w.x.y.z" > /etc/resolvconf/resolv.conf.d/base; resolvconf -u (where a.b.c.d and w.x.y.z are your ISPs nameservers). Also ask me about <fixresolvconf the ugly way>.
19:37<themill>scico: sounds like you need to fix the dhcp server that's giving you the wrong information.

22:57<dpkg>Synaptics is a driver for laptop touchpads. For use in X, install the xserver-xorg-input-synaptics package and "man synaptics" for driver options; GUI configuration tools include gsynaptics and gpointing-device-settings (Squeeze). Not working? -> "modprobe -r psmouse ; modprobe psmouse". Driver does not support auto-configuration in Lenny. . See also <clickpad>, <trackpoint>.
