00:00<kd123>hi... is there a gtkmm/gtk channel?

00:03<dennisthetiger>Greetings! I have a working XP and Debian Lenny install (soon to be a Debian Squeeze install on a new platter), and want to configure for dual boot. dpkg doesn't seem to have any good references, and my google fu failed: I just had to repair the Windows volume bootloader. It's been a while since I did a fresh install, so this said, is there a special thing to do when I do the Squeeze install so that I can dual boot?
00:03<jello>dennisthetiger: check the errata
00:04<cjhmdm>hello, is there a gui tool for setting up encrypted LV's?
00:04<acu>dennisthetiger, what exactly is your problem - it boots in lenny and you do not see windows in GRUB ?
00:06-!-headyadmin [] has joined #debian
00:06<dennisthetiger>acu: The Windows install is a fairly recent thing, and i had never added it manually - and moreover, this install was put in place back when Lenny was testng.
00:07<dennisthetiger>jello, acu: I don't know if this enters into it, but the Windows install is on an entirely separate disk from the Linux install.
00:07<acu>dennisthetiger, you still did not tell me what is your problem - can you boot in linux ?
00:07<acu>usually I install windows first
00:07<dennisthetiger>acu: ...oh. Yes, I can boot into Linux, no problem. =D
00:07<acu>then install linux
00:08<acu>if the windows is not seen in grub - there is a command grub-pc update or dpkg grub something like this
00:08<dpkg>[grub] GNU GRUB (GRand Unified Bootloader) 0.9x, aka GRUB Legacy. A powerful boot loader which can boot many OSes and understands many filesystems. To install: "aptitude install grub grub-doc" ("aptitude install grub-legacy grub-legacy-doc" for Squeeze). To reinstall, ask me about <fixmbr>. To migrate from LILO, ask about <lilo->grub>. See also <grub errors>, <grub2>, <supergrub>.
00:09<dennisthetiger>...wait, I think I'm recollecting. Install Windows, then install Linux - Grub usually figures it out at that point.
00:09-!-jello [] has quit [Quit: leaving]
00:09<acu>dennisthetiger, but sometimes you may need to do an update of the grub
00:09<dennisthetiger>acu: Spotted that in jello's erratea.
00:09<dennisthetiger>I think that's considered fairly normal. =)
00:10-!-nteon [] has joined #debian
00:10<acu>dennisthetiger, if you have nothing critical - reinstall everything - use squeeze - is way "modern" :)

00:11-!-Maudozo [~wesley@] has joined #debian
00:11<Maudozo>debian 6.0 kFreeBSD
00:11<dennisthetiger>So it sounds like I need to 1) put the Windows install on IDE 0, 2) install Squeeze onto the SATA that has nothing on it, c) update GRUB, which now exists (in theory) on what would otherwise be /dev/hda. Correct?
00:11<acu>and by the way - why do you need XP at all ?
00:11-!-KindOne [] has quit []
00:12<dennisthetiger>acu: Legacy programs and hardware that won't handle 7. =^_^=;;
00:12<Maudozo>dennisthetiger rm -rf /*
00:12<dennisthetiger>Oh, and Google cloud print isn't there for anything but Windows at this point - and I'm running a Chromebook.
00:13<acu>dennisthetiger, it does not matter really - if you install windows first - it will be recognized - most of the time I shrink the existing XP/Windows 7 partition and install linux on the same hard disk and it works fine - but it is possible to be a bit quircky with two hard disks - one IDE and one SATA -
00:13-!-Maudozo [~wesley@] has left #debian []
00:13-!-ottoshmidt [] has joined #debian
00:14<dennisthetiger>acu: Any definition of quirky available?
00:14<acu>dennisthetiger, too long since I did this stuff to remember - but if newer squeeze installer and grub2 are preety good
00:15<dennisthetiger>acu: Noted. If anything, it's a case of fooling around - and in a worst case, Lenny still lives on another disk in there.
00:16<dennisthetiger>Time to idle and rewire... =D
00:17<acu>dennisthetiger, if you install linux in the same hard disk as windows is almost 100% will work - windows needs something I forgot MBR or something - usually it stays untouched and GRUB gets it
00:17-!-Piet_ [] has joined #debian
00:17<acu>what is cloud print by google ?
00:18<flaccid>did you google that?
00:19<dennisthetiger>Basically, remote printing via Google Chrome.
00:20<dennisthetiger>Requires WIndows at this time. Linux and Mac are in development.
00:21-!-dduncan [] has left #debian []

00:23<dennisthetiger>Curiousity. The installer always lands on English/US for language. Is this normal, or how does it figure it out?
00:23<nl>Hello all! Is there a way to see what audio I am using if "lspci | grep audio" is failing to provide anything?
00:24<dennisthetiger>nl: lspci doesn't even show you have an audio device?
00:24<nl>I'm not sure if I'm using ALSA, JACK, OSS (?), or something else
00:24-!-Piet [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:24<dannyLopez>in this page show me missing plugin
00:24<nl>dennisthetiger; it reurns nothing, not that it shows I don't have any audio device
00:25<nl>I have module-assistant installed
00:25<acu>nl: the easiest way is to install audacity (an excellent audio editor) - and it has there preferences and you can see what device is what - you can test the microphones and you will know exactly which hw and whether is alsa or whatever -
00:26<acu>nl: I have noticed that in few laptops squeeze sacked big time with the audio - I needed a alsa-source m-a (basically compile alsa) then everything is OK -
00:27-!-cjhmdm [~cjhmdm@] has joined #debian
00:27<nl>acul thanks! This is a desktop. Installing audacity now! THanks YOU!
00:27<acu>in GNOME there is system SOUND preferences - but it sucks big time - the KDE version allows you to test it = with gnome you have to let some video or audio playing and fiddle with settings - maybe ther is some luck
00:28<cjhmdm>hello, could someone explain how to fix fonts in iceweasel? I've install msttcorefonts and for the most part all fonts across my system are fine, but in iceweasel they are horrible
00:29<acu>cjhmdm, I think you installed some other languages than English - that is fine - try to reinstall it - go in Synaptic Package manager and see for iceweasel different languages
00:29<nl>...basically, what I want to do; My audio works... but even with speakers cranked up to 11 on the volume knob, and VLC at 200%, it's not as loud as I want it...
00:29<nl>...I believe I recal "ALSAMIX" cli program being able to edit sound levels?
00:29-!-Guest669 [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:30<acu>there is GNOME alsa mixer
00:30<acu>and others
00:30<cjhmdm>acu: I don't follow, my locales are set up for en_US.UTF-8 and all of my installed software have been installed as English (I don't speak any other languages ><)
00:30<acu>but in GNOME -SYSTEM- Preferences - SOUND - should allow you to see to nl
00:31<acu>cjhmdm, what do you use Lenny or Squeeze ?
00:32<cjhmdm>acu: I've tried setting iceweasel's character encoding to UTF-8, Western (ISO-8859-1), and Western (Windows-1252) but to no avail
00:32<cjhmdm>acu: squeeze

00:32<dannyLopez>hi some body can tell me how can I hide mi Ip?
00:33<acu>cjhmdm, do a complete removal from synaptic - or an purge remove with apt-get - and reinstall iceweasel
00:33<dennisthetiger>dannyLopez: Unplug your network cable from the device connecting you to the internet, why?
00:33-!-dvs [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:34<acu>dennisthetiger, so what did you do - is it working - did you update the grub ?
00:34-!-nteon_ [] has joined #debian
00:34<dennisthetiger>acu: Currently doing the installation of Squeee into that SATA drive I was talking about earlier. Whether it works is yet left as an exercise.
00:35<dennisthetiger>dannyLopez: Are you trying to prevent yourself from getting attacked over the internet or something?
00:35<dennisthetiger>dannyLopez: Well, you can't have internet without IP, and that must be publicly visible. Why do you wish to hide it?
00:36-!-nteon [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:36<dannyLopez>I jus whant hide my ip
00:36<cjhmdm>acu: still the same
00:36<acu>dannyLopez, you are screwed - do you smell any smoke - your motherboard is too hot - shut down the computer
00:36-!-tash [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:36<dannyLopez>no, hide my ip in this chat
00:36<dennisthetiger>dannyLopez: Hate to say it, but you can either disconnect from the internet or live with the fact that your IP can be seen.
00:37-!-phurl [] has joined #debian
00:37<dennisthetiger>dannyLopez: It is impossible to be on the internet without a visible IP address. The traffic you request must go somewhere.
00:37<syndicate>oops, sorry
00:37<cjhmdm>let me ask a different way.. how can I force iceweasel to use truetype fonts?
00:37<acu>cjhmdm, is so weird and beyond my little baby brain - I just guess that this is Iceweasel specific - you screwed something in there - but I am no expert to fix your fonts - did you do a complete removal (while Iceweasel was off ) maybe you need to logout and login or something like this to be shore
00:38<dannyLopez>but in frenode I appear "unafiliate"
00:39<dennisthetiger>dannyLopez: ...oh, that's different.
00:39<sney>oftc might have some kind of hostmasking optional
00:39<sney>join #oftc to find out what they can do
00:39<sney>doesn't have +x, though
00:39<dannyLopez>this is I looking for
00:40<dennisthetiger>dannyLopez: what sney said. Also, if you are running a static IP address, see if your internet service provider offers anything about reverse DNS.
00:40<cjhmdm>acu: I doubt I screwed anything up, and it's not just web page fonts that are horrible.. all fonts in iceweasel, including my menu bars, bookmarks bar, etc share the same problem. It's not that Ican't read them, it's that they are not smooth like they should be
00:41<dannyLopez>ok joining inthis chanel
00:41<dannyLopez>dennisthetiger: tks
00:41<acu>do you use kde or gnome ?
00:41<dennisthetiger>dannyLopez: No problem. =) sney's sugestion may be easier though. Good luck!

00:46<acu>cjhmdm, do not know - just logout at least :)
00:46<dannyLopez>finally jeje i only need install sun java 6 plugin
00:46<dannyLopez>epic fail
00:46<acu>do you use iceweasel ?
00:46<acu>you need to close it and restart iceweasel
00:47<dannyLopez>acu no I use chrome & chromium
00:47<acu>dannyLopez, you need to install the java from synaptic (well is better) - I do not know if you need to enable contrib non-free in /etc/apt/sources.list

01:22<jjsullivan>hello there, a quick question. I'm having a bit of a problem with squeeze LXDE. Whenver I request a package other than the ones from the installer I'm met with the prompt "Please insert a debian xfce-lxde install disc and press enter" only problem is, I use a netbook. Is there any way to get around this or should I just virtually mount the CD?

01:37<dennisthetiger>To wit, i'm starting the install where it left off, and as above, it offered to install rt2x00-sources before asking what kind of packages to install.

02:49<HamishB>Hi, just running through a squeeze install with a RAID0 setup. When specifying fs type ext4 in the installer's partitioning step it asked for blocksize: 4k, 1mb, or 4mb. AFAIU ext4 only went up to 64kb? Anyway my use case is mostly 1 to 3 thousand 2-15gb files, latency isn't important but read/write throughput is (big time number crunching in a research lab). I chose 1mb as the middle option, not really knowing if it had to do with the max possible filesi
02:49<HamishB>ze/dirsize or large file tuning, but now if I run `dumpe2fs /dev/md1 | grep 'Block size'`it still tells me 4096!?. What exactly does selecting that 1mb blocksize option actually do? tx.

07:19<gsimmons>Hawky: pppoeconf should add a "dsl-provider" interface to /etc/network/interfaces, which you can raise via "ifup dsl-provider". This will start pppd in the background using the configuration file (sourced from /etc/ppp/peers) set at the 'provider' iface option. See and ask dpkg about interfaces (/msg dpkg interfaces) for more information.

08:48<Torsten_W>penny, imho is not realy a debian problem, is a problem of virtualbox, ithink
08:48<penny>I could install it succesfully but it doesn't load at startup.. it gets to "booting the kernel" and then "loading, please wait..." and it can be on that line for hours

08:53<DMBoyCloud>ulrask_, Have you serched google?
08:53<ulrask_>Thank you !
08:53<ulrask_>Yes but I don't understand chinese so it's difficult
08:53<sret>when did debian squeeze enter it's freeze? in early august?
08:53<DMBoyCloud>ulrask_, So why do you want to find them?
08:54<dpkg>freeze is, like, when changes to testing version of Debian are stopped for few months or so (no new package uploads unless to fix critical bugs - we try to 'stabilize' the unstable release). At the end of the freeze the release is 'stable'. Freezing is done when the <release goals> are achieved.
08:54<DMBoyCloud>ulrask_, Are you a chinese language student?

08:54<dutchfish>sret: August 6th, 2010
08:54<sret>so thats a bad thing or a good thing compared to some distros where their freeze time has been like maybe a year or more than debian's?
08:55<DMBoyCloud>ulrask_, Ok I will tray to help you just give me a second.
08:55<ulrask_>I had enough help already thank you all !
08:55<sret>if the frreeze time has been more than a year then your pkgs are gonna be so friggin old aren't they?
08:56<dutchfish>sret: what is your question?
08:57-!-kelsoo_ [~kelsoo@] has joined #debian
08:57<sret>a short freeze time means more up to date pkgs right?

09:01<sret>right and sid is always going to be unstable
09:01<devil>thats what its called.
09:01<ulrask_>There is nothing wrong with sid being broken from time to time, sid is for people who can deal with a broken distro
09:01<ulrask_>In toy story, sid is the nasty kids that always breaks everything
09:02<sret>devil: ok i wa sjust comparing for distros in testing, their freeze time
09:02<sret>debian's is relatively short atleast for squeeze
09:02<devil>sret: 7 months is not what i call short.
09:03<devil>lenny was 8 months
09:03<koollman>sret: relative to what ? the ice age ? :)
09:03<sret>relative to centos 6:P
09:03<ulrask_>koollman: it still beats DN Forever
09:03<ulrask_>Or hurd
09:03<sret>they're like a year or more in freeze time
09:03<devil>sret: well, who cares about centos :S
09:03<sret>half their shit is like age old stuff, was just discussing about it in shorewall:P
09:03<sret>devil: right right:P
09:03<devil>sret: plus centos is a pure server os, iirc
09:04<koollman>ulrask_: both project actually made some updates about their future. Which is amusing, of course :)
09:04<sret>devil: still for something like shorewall they need to be atleast close to the latest like debian at .11
09:04<sret>theires is at like goddamn 4.0!
09:05<ulrask_>koollman: quite sad to me, both were one thing that still was constant throughout my life. If DN Forever is released or hurd usable I will feel quite old

10:39<babilen>Keessince1988: The "Securing Debian Manual" has a few good tips/best practices. It is worth checking out, even if some of the more "tutorial style" parts of it are a bit dated.
10:39<Keessince1988>yes with sys5config or something i disabled all services i dont need, i also run a minimal instalation
10:39<babilen>Keessince1988: Icinga is a fork of Nagios and just a beautiful server monitoring web-frontend.
10:40<babilen>Keessince1988: That is IMHO the most important step. Something that is not running/installed can not be exploited.
10:40<babilen>so, enough chit-chat -- let me know if you have a specific problem
10:40<Keessince1988>the manual is indeed a great help! i hope it will be reviewed since the release of squeeze

12:06<babilen>amphi: Yes, but I'd rather learn something else in the time. Just wanted to check if I should invest my time into this as it will indeed make a huge performance difference.
12:06<daemonkeeper>valdyn: Regarding postfix no, not yet, regarding AES-CBC: You can't use those ciphers for block sizes which are not a power of the key size, hence you are forced to XTS (but again, I'm no crypto expert)
12:06<bartm>AgentC, it's "squeeze"
12:07<AgentC>bartm: how long will that take? some hours by 6000KB/S ?
12:07<amphi>babilen: from what I gathered, it is very much worth it, and not much to learn, unless you care about detail; I found fdisk command line for this in several places

12:36<daemonkeeper>Its not.
12:36<daemonkeeper>There is branch available using FreeBSD

12:36<dpkg>Debian GNU/kFreeBSD is a port that consists of GNU userland using the GNU C library on top of FreeBSD's kernel, coupled with the regular Debian package set. kfreebsd-amd64 and kfreebsd-i386 were released as "technology preview" for Squeeze, ask me about <install guide>. #debian-kbsd on
12:37<daemonkeeper>Its a branch, you can go with i386/AMD64 as usual with a Linux kernel

13:19<Skyrail>I've (re)installed proftpd using aptitude but dpkg doesn't seem to recognise that it's installed, 'dpkg -l proftpd' gives 'un' in the first two columns. Aren't the locally installed package databases connected between aptitude/dpkg (aptitude uses dpkg right?)

14:49<rss>AgentC: You could always try pinning a package. I have no experience with that though. I always reinstall a package if it is removed without my sayso. dpkg -i package.deb.

17:01<rss>AgentC: maybe with the upgrade many packeges became obsolete. That means no longer needed. aptitude may have automatically removed them without breaaking anything. Unlikikely i grant but possible. check services you need and reinstall what you find is missing

17:22<retrospectacus>freagg: downgrading is not the solution... do you have a detailed explanation of the problem ?
17:22<jhutchins>Habstinat: Not having eth1 is probably related to not connecting. Do you have multiple NICs? What does ifconfig say?
17:23<kop>freagg: Are you running sid, or testing? Either will break a lot.
17:23<daemonkeeper>jhutchins: He has eth0 (e100), but that fails to get an IP from dhcp (no output for dhclient, ifup fails with SIOCARDDRT)
17:23<Habstinat>jhutchins: I have eth0 and lo when I do ifconfig.
17:24<daemonkeeper>jhutchins: However ifconfig eth0 works
17:24<jhutchins>Interesting. and dhclient eth0?
17:24<daemonkeeper>"ifconfig eth0 up"
17:24<daemonkeeper>jhutchins: No output
17:24<daemonkeeper>dhclient in general seems ok, since -h works

17:25<kop>freagg: If you want a debian that always works but has newer stuff then run stable and see for ways to get more software for stable.
17:25<jhutchins>Curious. I know that the e1000 needs firmware, not sure about the e100, but that would probably result in no eth0.

17:25<kop>retrospectacus: (To be fair, there are _some_ changes to stable for security etc.)
17:25<daemonkeeper>jhutchins: We checked this as well, he has no matching PCI ID for the 2-3 known e100 types requiring firmware and dmesg loads the driver (denoting its MAC and so on)
17:25<kop>freagg: Then how could you possibly install that version of php? You're not using the debian repos.
17:26<rss>freagg: etch is no longer current. lanny was after etch. lenny has been superceeded by squeeze

17:27<jhutchins>freagg: Well, "stable" isn't etch, that could be part of the problem if you have squeeze packages mixed with etch.
17:27<kop>freagg: Ah. It's "bad" to put "stable" in instead of a release name. Because you get just this sort of problem -- upgrading without following the upgrade instructions found in the release notes.

17:29<magy>rss: still there? :)
17:29<oOarthurOo>tuzok, perhaps try another burning application, xfburn, or maybe just use CLI. If you've got cdrecord installed as you should then there are plenty of instructions online about how to burn a dvd using cli.

17:34<dpkg>extra, extra, read all about it, amd64 is the Debian architecture optimized for x86-64, aka AMD64. Consider using Debian i386 on x86-64 machines if you do not have a good reason to use Debian amd64. The amd64 architecture also supports running i386 Debian with either a -686 or -amd64 kernel. core2duo machines are amd64. See and the #debian-amd64 IRC channel on OFTC and freenode.

17:37<subdeuxed>Hi all
17:37<daemonkeeper>Habstinat: Do you have a spare network device? We might try to configure your network manually, but we must know about your network settings
17:37<rss>magy: possibly new dependancies on libraries will surface install those libs
17:37<subdeuxed>Is it just me or is the package listing for Squeeze empty on the debian site

17:43<Habstinat>jhutchins: It's a desktop.

18:27<dpkg>An MTA should be on most Unix(ish) systems to provide a way for various services to deliver asynchronous system or error messages. This includes things like cron and at (to give you the output of jobs) and various daemons (e.g. the init script of MySQL). The MTA does not have to listen to network ports so spam and security issues are largely irrelevant. See also <nullmailer>.

21:58<rozzin>amphi: I know--I've been at this a while :)
21:58<meebey>Talon^: you are missing the gnome-control-center package then
21:58<Talon^>cool thx
21:58<rozzin>amphi: you know what I mean, though?
21:59<meebey>Talon^: how have you installed? from CD?
21:59<rozzin>It's a question that people ask.
21:59<amphi>rozzin: gnome?
21:59<rozzin>And there was a screenshot of Lenny, on the front page.
21:59<Talon^>it worked fine up until i tried to remove epiphany, evolution, and iceweasel.. was trying to clean out stuff i won't use
22:00<rozzin>amphi: with spacefun.
22:00<rozzin>amphi: Right.
22:00<Talon^>i didn't realize it relies on evolution
22:00<Talon^>i thought evolution was just email
22:00<meebey>Talon^: it wants to install evolution again?
22:01<Talon^>eh theres a couple evoluution things in there
22:02<nevyn>fireman112: startupmanager to configure it.
22:02<nevyn>fireman112: you also probably want splashy and usplash-theme-debian
22:02<rozzin>If I put "spacefun" into the search box, I can go find some draft release-imagery with screenshots in the wiki.
22:03<fireman112>ok , I remembered the "splachy" soft, thank you nevyn!
22:03<amphi>rozzin: ?
22:04<meebey>Talon^: control center needs evolution-data-server, but thats not evolution only a backend component of it

22:16<Talon^>debian doesn't include 10,000 useless packages you'll prolly never use like ubuntu... its kinda nice for end-users cause most stuff just 'works' on ubuntu, but debians not that different, heck ubuntu's debian based so they're really alike, I just think ubuntu's bloatware trying to please everyone.

22:18<meebey>rozzin: yeah
22:19<Talon^>sure the repos tend to have almost identical packages, i just meant ubuntu installs a TON more for a basic system clean install than squeeze
22:19<rozzin>I caught some of the, uh... heated debate over spacefun.
22:20<rozzin>My reaction was, `Spacefun looks infinitely more professional than Windows XP'.
22:20<Talon^>I'm not complaining, i actually like the minimal ammount of processes squeeze runs on a clean install
22:21<nevyn>Talon^: nope.. ubuntu has way less packages than debian. unless you're counting universe.

22:22<rozzin>I guess I should bring that up on #debian-ubuntu.
22:22<nevyn>rozzin: oh right that's what I figgured which leads to my conclusion there is more stuff in debian than in ubuntu.
22:23-!-alonza [] has joined #debian
22:23<nevyn>rozzin: but somewhat paradoxically more stuff is installed by the ubuntu installer than by the debian installer which is what Talon^ was saying ment that ubuntu was bigger than debian.

22:31<kop>alonza: Someone may be able to help you, but it is much easier for us to support the command line because we can tell you what to type rather than telling you what the screen looks like and _then_ what to do, repeatedly.
22:31<alonza>i will open the terminal then np
22:31<alonza>terminal open i typed sudo
22:32<Talon^>you could do a quicksearch for compiz and look for stuff in the list like compiz-plugins compiz-fusion-plugins-main compiz-fusion-plugins-extra (theres also a compiz-fusion-plugins-unsupported which has stuff like snowy desktop)
22:32<kop>alonza: (And I find that if you learn the command line then things don't change, so your effort has long-term rewards. The gui changes constantly because no one yet knows how to do a good one.)
22:32<alonza>o i c
22:32<rozzin>Speaking of spacefun..., I want that T-shirt.
22:33<alonza>i am ready when yall are :)
22:33<kop>alonza: So type: aptitude search compiz and see if anything promising comes up. Then "aptitude show WHATEVER" to see more detail. Then "aptitude install WHATEVER" to try it out.
22:33<kop>alonza: You may need to logout and back into the gui after install, or not. I'm not familiar with compiz.
22:33<meebey>rozzin: I had the same thought
22:34<Talon^>nah, just fire up a terminal and do compiz --replace &

23:29<planet8>So xscreensaver is part of squeeze and having installed all the extra etc I still can't see the famous matrix screensaver that should be a part of xscreensaver. As a matter of fact a whole bunch is missing. Anyone who knows why that is?

23:31<planet8>craigevil, yes
23:31-!-luis [~luis@] has joined #debian
23:31<chuix>but i do not use screen saver
23:31<bones_was_here>blank screensaver + DPMS off ftw :p
23:32<planet8>I think it used to be in extra
23:32<craigevil>xmatrix is in xscreensaver-data-extra

23:33<planet8>hmm, I just looked in /usr/lib/xscreensaver and it is indeed there.. It's just not showing up in KDE system settings
23:34<planet8>..unless you run it as root!
23:34<planet8>Wonder who decided that.
23:34-!-chuix [~Tu1ly@] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
23:35<craigevil>do you also have kscreensaver-xsavers installed?
23:36<sney>I used to use xmatrix when I lived in a dorm, everyone thought I was a hacker!
23:36-!-jsubl2 [] has quit [Quit: leaving]
23:36<planet8>all the screen savers shows up once you start system settings as root.. gonna file a bug report on that.
23:37<craigevil>its an upstream kde4 bug, that has been there since kde4 first came out
23:37<planet8>craigevil, ahh.. okay thanks!

23:38-!-julinux [~julinux@] has joined #debian
23:39<craigevil>luis: edit your sources.list and comment out that server
23:39<pipe>something preventing you to install flash and java is a very good thing IMHO :)
23:39-!-DennisTheTiger [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
23:39<craigevil>or change the country code to a diff server

23:47<luis>is there any like a list to put in the repos, cause i have been reading awhile and some posts says that once squeeze is iinstalled i should change my repos list is this true? where do i find the right list?
23:47-!-lostinfog [] has joined #debian
23:47<sney>luis: those posts are probably outdated, the only change you might make is to add a local mirror
23:48-!-lostinfog [] has left #debian []
23:48<luis>that's where all started
23:48<luis>i mess with that because of those posts
23:49<sney>I can't reach either
23:49-!-mode/#debian [+l 480] by debhelper
23:49<sney>it must just be down
23:49<luis>i think so
23:49<sney>looks like it's based in UNAM
23:49<luis>but what about the multimedia repo?
23:49<sney>oh, dmm? well that's just optional if you want it
23:49<luis>i try and try differents but none of them work
23:49<luis>so i haven't been able to put a multimedia repo
23:50<luis>ok i see
23:50<sney>a lot of repositories are probably being hit hard since the release was only this week
23:50<dvs>lenny is no longer in multimedia
23:50<sney>he's got squeeze, dvs

23:53<sney>haha, yeah, we hear that one a lot
23:53<h>I have a dumb question about the terminal in squeeze, when I try to make it's background transparent it won't work. Stupid question I know. Any advice.
23:53<sney>h: there are no stupid questions, only stupid users. anyway, which terminal is it?
23:54<sney>which terminal emulator, I mean. the default gnome? kde?
23:55<h>yes, the default gnome. but I don't know if it's gnome because it doesn't have this problem is say ubuntu for instance.

23:56<craigevil>luis: try changing the country code to nl or use the repo, you can use a mirror that is closer to you
