00:01<ananth123>simonrvn: can you tell me which package has glxinfo ?
00:01<dpkg>Please search for things rather than just asking, e.g. 'apt-cache search regex', or with <aptitude search>. The following ways can locate packages that own a file (installed, or candidate for install): 'dpkg -S /bin/foo', <apt-file>, <pdo> (online) and <help find> (bot). <search dpkg> for factoids. See and ask me about <bot help>. See also <debtags>.
00:02<faheem>ananth123: if installed, use dpkg -S or dlocate. if not installed use apt-file or a web search eg at
00:02<ananth123>found it, mesa-utils.... thanks :)
00:03<ananth123>i didnt know about apt-cache

00:06<faheem>ananth123: that just searches the package description, not the contents

00:06<faheem>or do a web search

00:07<ananth123>hmm i did a web search but didnt find it... thats why i asked here.... but apt-cache search glxinfo gave me mesa-utils.... and after installing it, the program works
00:07<faheem>ananth123: would give it to you
00:08<ananth123>ok, will remember that. thanks again. :)

00:23<faheem>ananth123: compile the sources
00:23<dpkg>To use an NVIDIA graphics card with Debian, see . If you've done it before, asking me about <nvidia pre-built> or <nvidia m-a> might work. Installing directly from (i.e. with <nvidia-installer>) is _not_ supported in #debian, please go to #nvidia (
00:23<faheem>!nvidia m-a
00:23<dpkg>[nvidia m-a] For Lenny and Squeeze users. Ensure you have <non-free sources> added. "aptitude install module-assistant && m-a a-i nvidia-kernel". After successful module compilation, "aptitude install nvidia-glx nvidia-xconfig && nvidia-xconfig -o /etc/X11/xorg.conf". See also <nvidia>, <nvidia dkms>.
00:23<ananth123>faheem: my question is different :)
00:24<faheem>ananth123: how so?
00:24<yoshio>faheem, you would message judd: file slrn
00:24<faheem>yoshio: oh, different bot?
00:24<yoshio>ananth123, apt-cache policy nvidia
00:25<faheem>is that what the comma is for?
00:25<ananth123>im asking why is it installing gcc 4.3 instead of using gcc 4.4.5, which is a later version ?
00:25<faheem>ananth123: is what installing gcc 4.3?
00:26<ananth123>when i ran, m-a auto-install nvidia-kernel command, it download gcc 4.3
00:26<ananth123>but i already have gcc 4.4.5

00:29<faheem>I'm running 2.6.32-5-vserver-686-bigmem. I get (gcc version 4.3.5 (Debian 4.3.5-4) )
00:29<faheem>so yes. older version
00:30<ananth123>ah ok...i get it now :)
00:30<chealer>ananth123: it is not downgrading, it is just installing an earlier version.
00:30<ananth123>yes, understood

03:02<ljtirazona>Hi guys
03:02<ljtirazona>I've got a question
03:02<ljtirazona>we're deciding on whether or not to buy an IBM x3550 m3 server or not
03:03<ljtirazona>my main concern is that it has a broadcom NIC, that works out of the box with Debian Lenny, right?
03:03<sney>many do, but some require firmware
03:03-!-scrp3l [~scrp3l__@] has quit [Quit: Ex-Chat]
03:03<sney>generally speaking, the older the NIC the more likely it is to work
03:04<sney>and you'd need the actual chip model number or pci id to know for sure
03:04-!-Piet [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
03:05<ljtirazona>If I got the chip model number, where would be a great website to look that up?
03:05<sney>google? has listings for the more common stuff
03:05-!-reklipz [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
03:06<sney>generally you can google the model number and 'linux' and figure out whether it's natively supported pretty quickly
03:06<ljtirazona>okay I'll try that
03:07-!-Lethalman [] has joined #debian
03:07<sney>lenny's kernel is 2.6.26. Squeeze, which will be released in under 2 weeks, uses 2.6.32.
03:07<sney>native support is usually added during some version development so you'll see stuff like "supported after 2.6.27" etc

03:09-!-Odius [] has joined #debian
03:10<dpkg>The PCI-Id helps us work out how to support your PCI hardware. It looks like [abcd:1234] in the output of "lspci -nn". Ask the bot "judd" to match the PCI-Id of the device, e.g. "/msg judd pciid 8086:284b". Some hardware uses alternate means of detection: beware of some false positives+negatives. See also <judd-hardware>, <local pciid>. To find out what currently installed kernel modules your hardware is using, run "lspci -k".
03:10<sney>of course, if he doesn't have the hardware yet, finding the pci id may be more trouble than it's worth

03:12-!-cybercaffe [] has joined #debian
03:13<ljtirazona>I'm still trying to find the NIC model
03:13<ljtirazona>But it's IBM, right? Don't they like have a reputation for making sure that the stuff they make is linux compatible?
03:13<sney>but they've slipped in the past so you can't just trust them 100%
03:14-!-ant [] has joined #debian
03:14<sney>intel NICs are generally foolproof though. especially the wired ones.

04:37<saulo>I'm back. Already added "disable_ipv6=1" to kernel line. Added "alias net-pf-10 off" and "alias ipv6 off" to modprobe aliases,conf
04:37<nadir>you know the little how-to at
04:37<saulo>but "cat /proc/net/if_inet6" returns "00000000000000000000000000000001 01 80 10 80 lo"
04:38<saulo>nadir: I've tried this:
04:38-!-jester54 [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
04:39<dpkg>[noipv6] To disable use of <IPv6> on Lenny: echo install ipv6 /bin/true >> /etc/modprobe.d/local.conf (and reboot for this change to take effect). From Squeeze onwards, IPv6 is built into the kernel, add the kernel command line option ipv6.disable=1 to your bootloader.
04:39<nadir>wait a sec for the link, i can't tell you more then the link.
04:40<nadir>it is not related to a 37-kernel. just what came to my mind:

05:16<jthill>sounds to me like they're both broken, it's up to you which one you want to get working first

Perhaps pointing your machines at a local custom repo and having them blindly accept everything on that mirror would be best.

07:30<Habbie>hello; if a package i install specifies a path-based interest trigger, and i then remove/purge this package, the trigger stays in /var/lib/dpkg/triggers/File. is this intended behaviour?
07:31-!-jespada [] has joined #debian
07:33<babilen>Habbie: which package is that?
07:34<Habbie>it's called openpanel-core - it's not part of Debian; my question is about dpkg basically :)

07:34<Habbie>if there is another more appropriate channel for dpkg questions, please let me know
07:34<babilen>I don't think that this is intended behaviour as (purged) packages should remove everything they've installed.
07:35<Habbie>i thought the same way
07:35<Habbie>which suggests dpkg is buggy
07:35<Habbie>but i'd like to find a reference

08:08<dpkg>BackTrack is not Debian and is not supported in #debian (ask me about <based on debian>). Try or #backtrack-linux on instead. BackTrack is a Linux distribution based on <Ubuntu> Intrepid (as of BackTrack 4), previously <SLAX>. Derived from merging two penetration-testing distributions: WHAX (formerly WHOPPIX) and Auditor Security Linux.

09:54<babilen>AgentC: You probably (hopefully!) installed the libs to /usr/local -- shouldn't be that much work to remove them from there. Do you use gdm3 or gdm?

Why do you want to do that? What is your ultimate goal?
11:31<sret>drone77: ok alsa card reset
11:31<babilen>AgentC: Well, you ran "./configure --prefix=/foo/bar" or not? (hopefully --prefix=/usr/local) If not, it depends on the default location. Typically the default is /usr/local but some upstreams do not adhere to that convention)
11:31<AgentC>AgentC: i checked which "ldd" / libs are in what package and made a reinstall, but no effect; gdm does not startup
11:31<sret>drone77: oh god we're back to the defualt setttings now, i see my HDA intel
11:31<drone77>sret don't worry
11:32<AgentC>babilen: UNINSTALL worked, xorg&gnome coming up!! :-))
11:32<sret>i reset it, what do i do next?
11:32-!-fralle [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
11:32<babilen>AgentC: You should have a bunch of stuff in /usr/local which you might want to remove -- The easiest way is to run "make uninstall" in the directory from which you "make install"ed the software. Such a make target might be available. If not, you'll have to delete the files manually
11:32<babilen>AgentC: surprise!
11:32<drone77>sret in /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf change the options snd-usb-audio index=-2 to a 0

11:34<sret>you meant alsa-base
11:34<sret>not alsa-base.conf?
11:34<drone77>on my system it's /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf
11:35<sret>drone77: did you see the alsa-conf file i pasted? i modified the options and on top you can see i modified autoloader aliases too

11:37<drone77>what file is this in?
11:37<babilen>AgentC: You might want to read that. The former is the closest thing Debian has to a manual and the latter explains what all the /etc /usr /var /home /usr/local directories are about
11:37<sret>and i have #options snd-usb-usx2y index=-2

11:39<babilen>sret: Just a side-note. When you arrived here yesterday I asked you about "cat /proc/asound/cards" first and pointed out the troubleshooting section of Alsa on the Debian wiki, which explains exactly the "which card is the default one?" probem and how to fix it. Good to see that you are finally working on that :) (hope the wife doesn't mind as well)
11:40<sret>babilen: yeah i wentby alsa's wiki and i got sound working after i modified the asoundrc file to default 0 untl this morning.. no browser sound
11:40<drone77>sret remove/undo your changes
11:40<babilen>And good that drone77 actually has one of those speakers so you have some kind of reference implementation to compare against although your version of Debian differs ;)

11:41<AgentC>babilen: i was triing to compile the pcsx2 playstation2 emulator, but that requires some libaries in other version then debian-std, so i tried to compile them without knowing that other systemparts crashs through this. the binary-version of the pcsx2 brings up errormessages in case of wxwidgets

11:42<drone77>sret and on 190 uncomment it
11:42<sret>i remoced the two lines under option which were commented and the top
11:42<AgentC>babilen: the windows version of that emulator is too slow on the 1.8ghz machine, on linux i've a 3.2ghz dualcore would be enough but i do not get it up to start.

11:43<babilen>AgentC: yes, I understand. Unfortunately pcsx2 has not yet been packaged for Debian and noone seems to be interested in doing that.
11:43<drone77>sret but the -2 is just preventing it grabbing device location
11:44<sret>drone77: btw i modified etc/modprobe.d/blacklist too
11:44<AgentC>babilen: the coders say linux-version is buggy but should run. i think pcsx2 depends on a good 3d gfx-card, i dont know if this requirement is given by my machine
11:44<sret>i added blacklist snd_intel8x0

11:45<gernot>Hi. A while ago I read something about a little program for managing software in /usr/local. It was basically an alternative method to checkinstall (worked without building packages). Now I can't remember its name. Does somebody know what I'm talking about?
11:45<sret>i get a warning, process using firefox-bin 4451, 4762 mixer-applet

11:46-!-dominick [~dominick@] has joined #debian
11:46<babilen>AgentC: It looks as if pcsx2 needs newer versions of libraries than those that have been backported to Lenny. Given that Squeeze (the next Debian release) will be released soonish (february 5/6 is expected) I would recommend to upgrade to Squeeze. The process is detailed in the release notes. Would that be an acceptable option?
11:46-!-nikolaj_basher [] has left #debian []
11:47<sret>the mixer-applet is my volume control, it asks me if i should reload it or dont reload?
11:47<sret>drone77: ok alsa reloaded no warnings

12:33<babilen>Hmm, I would recommend to upgrade to squeeze, install pulseaudio, place in /etc/asound.conf and use, for example, pavucontrol to set (per application) volume levels. But
12:33<babilen>AgentC: I am a computational linguist, not an engineer
12:34<AgentC>babilen: sorry
12:34<sret>retrospectacus: as of now no browser sound
12:34<sret>no system sound, no volume anywhere
12:34<babilen>sret: ^^^ But ... you could also run the alsa-info script again and work on it with retrospectacus (show us the output)
12:34<sret>if i do a cat proc/asound/cards/ i see my USB z-10 as the default 0

12:50<sret>in the /sound file there is only just 2 lines there
12:50<babilen>sret: And I don't think that you should actually have the /etc/modprobe.d/sound file (at least i couldn't find it in any package in lenny) -- where is it from? have you installed other alsa related package from third party sources or from different debian releases?

13:34<drone77>sret mine's not working in multiple apps now, ARRGGH
13:34<babilen>sret: I would like to point out that there is a totally different approach to what we've been doing right now. Most applications just use the soundcard with index 0 by default (some might not even work with anything else) -- But the whole idea behind the ~/.asoundrc and /etc/asound.conf files is, to configure alsa to use specific devices as default. So, a carefully crafted ~/.asoundrc might actually be the "cleaner" solution than forcing ...
13:35<sret>drone77: no kidding get rid of asoundrc
13:35<babilen>... specific pieces of (removable!) hardware to specific indices.

14:22<AgentC>retrospectacus: is it possible to setup individual bot-answers with system-ansfers? (for example output of df) ?
14:22<bartm>sret, depends on what you want to do with the source code
14:22-!-oscar3425 [~oscar3425@] has joined #debian
14:22<retrospectacus>AgentC: sounds possible to me. If you know perl ;)
14:23<sret>retrospectacus: like if i want to build a pkg from source, then usually i have them put in /usr/local?
14:23<ompaul>sret: no, on both counts
14:23<AgentC>retrospectacus: ok, pearl i know, normally me coding in C but i made experience with perl in case of connecting to sipgate (sendsms)
14:23<bartm>sret, no put the source code in a subdir of your home dir
14:23<retrospectacus>sret, no... you can download it wherever, your desktop maybe. then compile etc. and after you install it, it might go in /usr/local
14:24<sret>yeah after i untar it and stuff it'll go into ~/sret
14:24<ompaul>sret: in the first place you can "download files anywhere" and move them anywhere after that - convention says put the source to linux in /usr/src but that is a whole other story
14:24-!-_00111111 [] has left #debian []
14:24-!-giampiero [~giampiero@] has quit []
14:25<sret>so downloading source should be placed in usr/local/src or /usr/src?

14:25-!-global_ [~global@] has joined #debian
14:25<ompaul>sret: good programs have compile options that allow you say where you want the binary built, and now you might be thinking /usr/src/ however you are aware that debian has tens of thousands of packages and you might be able to have it manage the whole process for you
14:26<ompaul>sret: and you could also be thinking to build things into /usr/local/ but you might be really thinking /usr/local/bin
14:26-!-gandalfn [] has quit [Quit: Ex-Chat]
14:26<retrospectacus>sret, the source location is irrelevant. Put it somewhere convenient for you, e.g. your ~
14:27<sret>so what's the point of /usr/local then? last time i built something from source, everyone said you have to put it in usr/local/
14:27<ompaul>sret: /usr/local/bin/ you didn't read it
14:28<bartm>sret, when you download source code (not debian source package), compile and build the binary software, then you might want to install the resulting binaries in /usr/local/bin
14:28<ompaul>sret: please read this in full (and take your time)
14:28<sret>ah so the binaries go into /bin
14:28<retrospectacus>sret: you should *install* it to /usr/local/bin as it is a custom thing you are doing. (note that unless you are modifying the source for a specific reason of your own, you should just use the package manager)
14:29-!-artista_frustrado [] has joined #debian
14:29<sret>so what happens if i install the binaries to say the desktop, then?
14:30<retrospectacus>then you will have to type ~/Desktop/blah instead of blah, to run it
14:30<bartm>sret, that's fine too, but then these are only available to this desktop's user
14:30<sret>right but there;s no issues of a system breaking down or sometihng?

14:30-!-brotozoan [FisherT@37Q5WN1-FHLC12.LAW.NYU.EDU] has joined #debian
14:31<sret>which is why it's called local then?

15:03<eekbah>Ok dvs seems to have left, can anyone else explain why I may be having issues installing 5.0.7 64 bit on a ich9r raid when the install goes through with out any errors on the 32bit version?
15:04<bartm>eekbah, if 32bit works and 64bit doesn't, then the exact error output/behavior might be worth a bug report

15:05<eekbah>bartm, so the install process would not be any different from 64 to 32 it should just work?
15:05<drone77>daemonkeeper: you did lowercase?
15:05<daemonkeeper>I didn't do anything. bluenemo did.

16:58<AgentC>mc68040: ah! i setted vbox up to use my archive-HDD by direct-Access (hole disc mode) but that seems to be dangerous when writing from vbox to disc while syncro-mounted under hostsystem.

16:58<kop>Dominus: Sooner or later you'll want to mess with your system if you're getting inbound mail.

17:41<babilen>mc68040: Did the rest of the installation succeed?
17:41<daemonkeeper>You can dist-upgrade
17:42<babilen>... although it is probably easier to install squeeze from scratch
17:42<babilen>(of you just installed)
17:42<mc68040>babilen: yes, i configured de_DE.UTF-8 after installation
17:42<Dominus>mc68040: Yeah. I found out how to open it up. Now I'm just struggling a bit with making it able to use IMAP and POP, so that I can use my normal email-program :)
17:42<Dominus>So far I've installed Dovecot

17:43<Dominus>To support IMAP, POP.. I found a guide saying it was a good POP & IMAP server for exim4
17:43<babilen>mc68040: Ok, good to hear that. I suspect some incomplete translation (although 100% was reported for de IIRC) or some problems in the language files. Thanks for the report!
17:43<mc68040>Dominus: exim4 is only a MTA, you need an imap/pop server

19:20<babilen>not on openjdk -- still necessary on sun's as far as i know, but that might have changed in the meanwhile. read the bug reports i linked earlier
19:20<themill>!java ipv6
19:20<dpkg>net.ipv6.bindv6only=1 was set in netbase 4.38, no longer set by default since netbase 4.42 (BTS #560238). net.ipv6.bindv6only=1 breaks networking in Java for sun-java6-jdk (BTS #560044). For older Squeeze installations, use "sed -i 's/net.ipv6.bindv6only = 1/net.ipv6.bindv6only = 0/' /etc/sysctl.d/bindv6only.conf ; invoke-rc.d procps restart" to revert.
19:20<themill>that's not disabling it, just changing the way connections are made

19:50<r0ger>i'm getting a 403 forbidden error accessing my horde3 installation, but my kolab installation is in the same VirtualHost directive.. i was using Allow From IP to limit access to just one ip address but set it to all to test and it still gives me a forbidden error.. both the kolab and horde3 directories are owned by root and have the same permissions so i'm not sure it's a permissions problem (both installed from apt)
19:50<r0ger>any ideas on what i may be doing wrong?
19:50<r0ger>i have no problems getting into kolab
19:51<cd>Hi guys! For abut 10 hours (until I read my log) my debian gateway was the target of a ssh attack (at a rate about 10 tries a minute). There is nothing to suggest that the attacker got acces to my sistem. However, I want to know if there is a possibility (from sshd configuration or other means) to limit such attacks and (maybe) ban the IP's that cannot connect in a specified time interval or using a specified number of tries. Thaks.

19:51<r0ger>after 4 (i think) wrong attempts it bans the ip for 10 minutes (all configurable)
19:51<dpkg>fail2ban is a small python program that runs rules when people fail to logon after a certain number of tries. By default it works with <ssh> and <iptables>, but can be extended to whatever authentication and access denial system you're using. <Dovecot> administrators: see . See Debian bug #573314 regarding Postfix and SASL. Also ask me about <denyhosts> and <iptables ssh filter>.

19:57<Some_Person>I ran "dd if=/dev/sdb of=~/ubuntu-backup" on an SD card containing an ubuntu install. Now I need to get a file out of this. What should I do? The drive had one ext4 partition
19:57<sney>mount ~/ubuntu-backup /mnt/foo -t ext4 -o loop
19:57<sney>modify to your needs
19:58<amphi>if you had backked up sdb1 it would be easier
19:58<saulo>Some_Person: the -o loop is a necessary option
19:58<sney>a lot of flash drives use the whole device rather than partitions
19:58<amphi>I think now you will have to mount the partition using losetup to provide the offset to the beginning of the partition
19:59<amphi>sney: sure, if it's not partitioned
19:59<Some_Person>mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/loop1, missing codepage or helper program, or other error. In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail or so
19:59<sney>I guess not in this case
19:59<amphi>Some_Person: what does file -s ubuntu_backup say?
20:00<Some_Person>/home/sam/ubuntu-backup: x86 boot sector; partition 1: ID=0x83, active, starthead 32, startsector 2048, 7725056 sectors, code offset 0x63

20:03<amphi>Some_Person: does fdisk -l ubuntu_backup output anything useful?
20:04<amphi>you should be able to figure out from that the offset in bytes to the beginning of the partition
20:05<Some_Person>I probably should have dd'd sdb1 instead of sdb :-(
20:07<Some_Person>I was just backing up my old ubuntu install on there before replacing it with debian
20:07<amphi>try losetup -o 3627008 /dev/loop0 ubuntu_backup
20:07<amphi>I'm guessing somewhat here
20:07<Some_Person>losetup: /dev/loop0: device is busy
20:07<amphi>if that goes without error, try file -s /dev/loop0
20:08<amphi>try /dev/loop1 then
20:08<Some_Person>well, no errors
20:08<amphi>for both commands
20:08<amphi>what does file -s /dev/loop1 say?

20:11<Some_Person>/dev/loop1: data
20:11<amphi>Some_Person: losetup -d /dev/loop1 again to free the loopback device
20:12<amphi>you must rtfm to find out at what offset the partition begins; I did this once, a long time ago
20:14<amphi>once you have the partition attached to /dev/loop1, and have checked you can mount it, you can dd it to a file to have just that partition in a file, so it will be easy to loopback mount
20:18<Some_Person>I got this: /dev/loop1: Linux rev 1.0 ext4 filesystem data, UUID=043bee71-3c87-439d-8634-75eabdd17820 (needs journal recovery) (extents) (large files) (huge files)
20:18<Some_Person>is that what it should be?
20:18<amphi>that looks right - what offset?

22:12<cafejunkie>Quick question. I am doing a PXE install of squeeze. I can boot into the install menu. I start the install, choose my language/location/keyboard. After that the installer hangs (just the blue screen). Even after letting it sit for about 30 minutes. Any ideas?
22:12<kop>twb: Yup.
22:12<twb>Oh, you just mean they mirror the normal debian archive?

23:01<cafejunkie>Just tried booting into the lenny installer. Lenny works. I'm going to install lenny, add the non-free repositories and then upgrade to squeeze. Thanks for the help guys.
23:02<twb>cafejunkie: no worries
23:05<Some_Person>How can I add /sbin to PATH for a non-root user?
23:05<AgentC>DK2.0.172: inwork project files are in directory /work of the archive
23:06<jthill>Some_Person: put it in shell's startup file
23:06<AgentC>Some_Person: bashrc?
23:06<jthill>for bash, that'll be bashrc
23:06<jthill>to do it without dups, .. sec
23:07<AgentC>DK2.0.172: for precompiled windows executables sdl.dll must be somewhere in path

23:07<Some_Person>thank you
23:08<jthill>do, if you love me, dig through the manpage to see what that's doing
23:08-!-prem [~prem@] has joined #debian
23:09<Some_Person>It's quite obvious: if path is defined, and doesn't contain /usr/sbin, it adds it to the end. Same thing for /sbin

23:09<Some_Person>something like that
23:10-!-grrrrrr [] has joined #debian
23:10<jthill>yah, I was referring to the mechanics, how the substitution works, what the options are
23:10<Some_Person>Except I've got a syntax error: "bash: /home/sam/.bashrc: line 102: syntax error near unexpected token `then'" and "bash: /home/sam/.bashrc: line 102: `check=:$PATH: if test ${check%:/usr/sbin:*} = $check ; then '"
23:10<jthill>and while you're in the bash manpage you can see what else it does
23:11-!-grrrrrr is now known as Guest1545
23:11<jthill>say what? I snipped that straight from my .bashrc
23:12<jthill>I cut and paste it to my shell it works
23:12<Some_Person>sorry, pastefail
23:12<Some_Person>I'm using Epiphany, and it has copy/paste issues

23:21<AgentC>when i do an update to squeeze next month with editing aptsources.list and aptget update/upgrade, is there a risk to loose configurations in case of source-changes or something else ?
23:24*AgentC smiles about
23:25<sney>there's always a risk, but the worst that'll happen is the config directory gets moved or the new version doesn't understand the old config style. you could back up /etc to be sure
23:26<sney>there are some big changes between lenny and squeeze so it's not a trivial upgrade, I'd almost recommend just backing up /home and doing a clean install
23:27<Some_Person>AgentC: What kind of plug is that?
23:29<sney>the kind you shouldn't use, unless you want a fried NIC or blown fuse
23:29<AgentC>sney: my /home dir is separate partition, but i see would be a good idea to make a sysbackup before upgrading...
23:29<sney>the joke answer would be "homePNA"
23:30<Some_Person>foreign power outlet plug?
23:30<jthill>do a hundred upgrades, one of them is sure to hose another partition.
23:30<jthill>it could be the first of the hundred
23:31<jthill>oooh, yeah. plug power straight to your nic
23:31<AgentC>i made the home dir to a separate partion cause i got syscrashes in past, on this way at least the configuration and mailarchives stays after a syscrash

23:32<jthill>and you have someplace to go if your rootfs gets just mildly borked, you can tar-pipe it across and pivot_root
23:32<AgentC>also backing up /etc to an tgz archive somerwhere else on fileserv is a good idea to do as crontab entry
23:33<jthill>home is actually where I keep my root backup too

23:39<Some_Person>I hate compiling
23:40<jthill>haven't needed that, yet.

23:41<Some_Person>android has taken hours
23:41<jthill>possible? you know the answer to that.
23:42<jthill>but in my experience it isn't likely.
23:42<AgentC>bytheway, i found a java-app midpssh, a ssh client for java-mobile phones. pretty nice !
