00:00<eric>is anyone here good at bash scripting that could help my script really quick?
00:00<retrospectacus>eric, probably, or you could ask #bash on freenode
00:01<retrospectacus>kop: I don't see anything about ulimit in that readme files
00:01*MrFrood - real nerds use ksh :|
00:02<kop>Real nerds use dash to ensure posix compatiblity.
00:02<kop>retrospectacus: And you don't want to raise it for everybody, right?
00:02-!-kanru [] has quit [Quit: WeeChat 0.3.2]
00:03<MrFrood>ksh93 has a posix compatabe mode
00:03<kop>MrFrood: So does bash, but it will still execute it's own extentions without error.
00:03<retrospectacus>kop: don't really care whether for everyone or just mysql server
00:03-!-kanru [] has joined #debian
00:03*MrFrood thinks there should of been an "l" in his last comment somewhere...
00:04<kop>retrospectacus: I've the feeling that the right way involves pam. There's a pam_ulimit module.
00:04-!-otypoks [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:04<kop>retrospectacus: And IIRC the default pam configs have been modularized so you can extend them.
00:05<MrFrood>kop: I guess we should all really use osh for sh compatability then?
00:05-!-smhar [~salman@] has joined #debian
00:05<kop>MrFrood: Could be. Tell me more.
00:05<retrospectacus>I read something about that and pam was supposed to use /etc/security/limits.conf but it wasn't for for me for some reason
00:05-!-otypoks [] has joined #debian
00:06<kop>retrospectacus: Does the bts say anything about that?
00:06<MrFrood>osh is a port of the origanal sh for modern *nix systems

00:07<MrFrood>the o in the name stands for "old"
00:07-!-ct [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:08<kop>retrospectacus: In any case I'd investigate dropping pam_ulimit into one of those pam session directories (uh, I think). By the time you figure out which to put it in and the right knobs to frob you'll probably know how to just change the ulimit for mysql. (Although there may be a setting in there already that's frobbable without understanding much.)

01:19<rigved>i have asked this on freenode, but no reply yet...hi everyone...i am installing debian squeeze via the dhcp-pxe-tftp method. the installer gets the /dists/stable/Release file successfully. but after that, it gets stuck. the error is /dists/stable/main/binary-i386/Release file is unsigned. can any one tell me what's going wrong here? i am using the debian 6 dvd 1 file (which i downloaded via the official torrent) for the installation.
01:21<sney>if it were me, my first step would be to drop over to a tty and see if that's *really* what's holding it up, via dmesg
01:22-!-dark [~dark@] has joined #debian
01:22-!-dark [~dark@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
01:23<rigved>sney: that's the error which i saw on pressing Alt-Ctrl-F4, the log terminal. should i run some commands in tty2 or tty3?
01:24<sney>I always forget about the default log terminal in the installer. no, but was there anything else interesting before that unsigned error? checksum mismatches?

01:45<yuiop>hi, I'm having trouble mounting a SDHC memory after installing Squeeze. I have tried formatting vfat, ext2, ntfs, ext3 and still cant' mount it. Here is the error message i'm getting.
01:46<sney>udf and iso? weird. are you specifying the filesystem type to mount?
01:46-!-thkoch [] has joined #debian
01:49<yuiop>I havnt tried that, I'm thinking it should auto detect fs and mount it?
01:49<sney>it *should*, but try it manually to see where the problem is

01:55<Guest1533>sney: ok. sorry. it's not the dists/stable/bianry-i386/Release file. that is fetched fine. it says that 'downlaod-installer' was selected. then, a wget 404 server error. then it says the Release file in the root of the dvd image is unsigned.
01:56-!-Guest1533 is now known as rigved
01:56<rigved>sney: ^^
01:56<yuiop>manually mounting it with vfat works, where should set it so that it will auto mount? I'm using gnome
01:57<sney>yuiop: not sure, but it seems that gnome is assuming /dev/sdb to be an optical drive. I don't use gnome so I don't know where to look, but that's what I'd be looking for

02:56<EagleRock>well, I'm not entirely sure installing blueman with gnome-bluetooth still installed will cause conflict
02:57<EagleRock>I haven;'t used the packages
02:57<EagleRock>but this forum thread might be of help if it does:
02:58<bogdan>thanks a lot. i will try to use both of them at first
02:58<EagleRock>bogdan: that'd probably the cleanest solution, as you won't have to start managing the gnome metapackages

05:09-!-mode/#debian [+l 487] by debhelper
05:09<deux>didn't get the command i should use in terminal
05:10<deux>the thing is - i have dual GPUs and not sure which one is working, how to switch between them
05:10<deux>also - i've heard the ATI drivers are problomatic...
05:11<babilen>deux: (it basically comes down to the kernel version) + why not just try a live cd?
05:12<babilen>deux: the last thing i've read about optimus dual setups indicated that you more or less have to decide which one to use and disable the other ... no live switching. But that might have changed.
05:13<deux>i think all works fine
05:13-!-darkblue [~darkblue@] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
05:13-!-dark [] has joined #debian
05:13<deux>next question - does the current debian kernel (2.6.32) is as good as the latest kernel (2.6.37). something to do with patches etc.
05:14<babilen>define "good"
05:14<babilen>it is patched security wise -- there are differences in the feature set though
05:14<deux>well - i've heard that the latest patch has drivers, and diff bug fixes and system speed ups
05:14<babilen>deux: If this is indeed a problem for you you can install a newer kernel
05:15<deux>how would i do that?
05:16-!-angasule [~angasule@] has joined #debian
05:16<babilen>lots of different options. right now I would install the kernel package from experimental. but you can use make-kpkg to compile it (if supported, have to check for .37) or follow
05:16-!-dark [] has quit []
05:17<babilen>!tell deux -about make-kpkg
05:17<babilen>but the .37 is in experimental and a > .32 kernel will eventually be uploaded to sid and you can install it from there.
05:18<deux>ok, so basically wait
05:18<deux>how long does it take usually for a kernel to come down to stable? or does it change?
05:19<babilen>deux: Yes and no. Keep in mind that the versions in *stable* releases do not change. (hence the name "stable") -- It will just become easier to install a newer kernel. Installing it from experimental *is* quite easy, but the *experimental* in the name has a reason and I wouldn't run this on a production server.

05:20<dpkg>[stable] The status of a Debian release when no packages will be added or new versions introduced, and changes will only fix security issues and critical bugs. Packages can be removed in rare circumstances. The current stable version of Debian is Squeeze (6.0); ask me about <releases>. Security bugs are fixed in stable by backporting the fix to the current version (ask me about <security backports>).

05:40<babilen>rigved: what does that do?

09:46<Torsten_W>ffws, it overwrites only glx
09:46<And1>So just reinstalling every xorg-package could work, aie? Just the question what's the easiest way to do that. :P
09:46<Torsten_W>and an reinstall of xserver-xorg-core is fixing this
09:47<SynrG>yes, "only" making it impossible for me to make a live CD that works with nvidia + ati + xorg gl
09:47<SynrG>i shouldn't say impossible ... but life is too short for me to mess with such things :p

09:51-!-pistolpete [] has joined #debian
09:51<Torsten_W>i would use the binary blob
09:51<SynrG>And1: not sure about that. reinstall is not as good as purge/reinstall (though there's a huge tower of dependencies on top which makes purge impractical)
09:52<Torsten_W>And1, in sid, you can't use nv, since nv was removed from the repo
09:52<SynrG>i mean "not as good for returning things to a 'pristine' state"
09:52<And1>Torsten_W: Oh ok. Strange xorg still wants to load it ...
09:52<Torsten_W>that's normal
09:52<And1>SynrG: So I should purge xserver-xorg-core, maybe?
09:52<Torsten_W>not nessesary
09:52<Torsten_W>you don't have a problem with glx
09:53<SynrG>i just finished saying it's impractical to do so :)

09:54<sahko>how can i reconfigure alsa? is there a debian specific way to do it? i would like to recreate /var/lib/alsa/asound.state
09:54<Torsten_W>we don't speak about misconfiguration
09:55<SynrG>ok. i should pay attention better :)

10:03<deux>i was wondering - i've checked my hardware on and some of my hardware has the kernel 2.6.35 next to it
10:03<deux>does that mean the 2.6.35 and above kernels supports it?

10:04<dvs>deux: That's what I would think.
10:04-!-arw [~familia@] has joined #debian
10:04<deux>does that mean there is no way to support it with squeeze then?
10:04<syndicate>no, you can always put 2.6.35 or above into squeeze
10:05<dvs>deux: You could get the kernel from experimental or compile the kernel yourself
10:05<deux>could you please tell me how i can get the kernel from experimental?

10:09<ffws>deux: enable sid repository, set correct pinning and use apt-get to isntall the kernel
10:09<syndicate>you can change these lines
10:09<syndicate>export HISTFILESIZE=9876
10:09<syndicate>export HISTSIZE=9876
10:09<syndicate>or just append them
10:09<syndicate>it will override earlier values
10:10<deux>i have no idea how to enable the sid repo
10:10<deux>what is pinning
10:10<K6ORJ>anyone know where there is a good explination on how to install the non-free nVidia drivers for squeeze?
10:10<sney>the wiki has a pretty good howto
10:11<K6ORJ>Ok let me check that out. All the instructions that I am finding are for lenny and they are not working.
10:12<sney>also check what dpkg just told you
10:12<ffws>deux: you should do a bit of reading before you enable sid
10:13<bluenemo_>i'm writing a shell script. why does: if [ -d $cfg_dir_path ]; then answer to stdout: line 24: /home/bluenemo/.blunix: is a directory ? i dont want if to answer if the -d is true :)
10:13<deux>where can i get that reading from?
10:13<mercutio22>syndicate: thanks
10:14-!-jgarvey [] has joined #debian
10:15<mercutio22>syndicate: should setting export HISTSIZE=10000 persist booting?
10:15<SynrG>bluenemo_: "is a directory" probably means you're treating it as a file (as the result of something other than the line you pasted) but in any case, this is not a help channel for shell programming :p
10:15<syndicate>you're welcome
10:16<syndicate>bash history will persist by default
10:16<syndicate>i think the size is irrelevant
10:16<bluenemo_>SynrG, oh ok :D yeah i've grown acustomed to know that here is a genius for everything :) but you're right, i'll look for an bash channel
10:16<K6ORJ>When I try to install nVidia the nVidia way i get a gcc error. it says gcc4.4 is installed but I need 4.3 I installed 4.3 but it doesn’t see it?
10:16<syndicate>only how many lines will be stored
10:17<SynrG>bluenemo_: a bit of general advice, i think the error might not occur where you think it is. use liberal use of 'set -x', etc. to make sure you're debugging the right line of code first :)
10:17<SynrG>bluenemo_: and good luck
10:17<syndicate>oh wait, wrong link

10:31<stack>Thank you!
10:31<SynrG>syndicate: hmm, but in this case it is correct
10:31<SynrG>there's always a bit of sloppiness when a new kernel clears NEW and enters the archive
10:31<SynrG>with bits of it entering the archive before the other bits you need.
10:33<syndicate>oh, so that's why
10:33<themill>that's pretty common for sid in general
10:34<syndicate>' linux-base_2.6.37-1~experimental.1_all.deb
10:35<syndicate>SynrG, thanks for the info. now i know why
10:35<SynrG>themill: but particularly accentuated in the case of kernels because they're large, complex uploads
10:35<syndicate>deux, you can download 2 package needed to install 2.6.37 from the urls above
10:35<themill>SynrG: and because people try to explicitly install it rather than just letting apt upgrade what it can.
10:36<deux>syndicate: install them and then what?
10:36<syndicate>then see if it works
10:36<SynrG>you'll need a new linux-base

11:47<sahko>after doing a dpkg --get-selections i see many packages marked as deinstall. the man page says "The package is selected for deinstallation (i.e. we want to remove all files, except configuration files)." but i think that i have purged them with aptitude already. whats the real deal here?
11:48<SynrG>right. --get-selections only tells you the intended disposition of the package
11:48<SynrG>not its current state
11:49<sahko>how do make em disappear from the list?

11:52<SynrG>i think so. it will only purge things you explicitly ask to purge.
11:52<paparsifal>vmnet1 Link encap:AMPR NET/ROM HWaddr
11:52<SynrG>synaptics has some nice filters ... you might use that to find/cleanup stuff with residual configs that you really want purged.
11:52<SynrG>synaptic, i mean

14:14<ramnet>Before starting the installation process on hardware unfamiliar to you, a suggestion is to download the firmware tarball for your installation and have it available on removable storage. When the installer starts, it will automatically find the firmware tarball on the removable storage install the firmware if needed for your hardware.

16:15<uldics>home folder works
16:16<uldics>yes, but how do I set it on the new system, so it works
16:16<retrospectacus>you could keep your entire /home for the new installation then
16:16<retrospectacus>simply copy the data to the new drive, then choose to use that partition as /home and do not format, in the installer
16:16<uldics>just keep it and it would automatically get me my user back, or it should be made with same name and then files moved over?
16:16<fnmueller>uldics: yeah, copy it there; done
16:17<retrospectacus>either way should work
16:17-!-mats [] has joined #debian
16:17<uldics>sounds good to me
16:17<retrospectacus>well it would not "automatically get me my user back"

16:18<Habstinat>.ramnet: I seemed to have installed Debian successfully, but after boot I am greeted with a terminal to log in, and after logging in when I try startx the command isn't found.
16:18<jhutchins_lt>uldics: You do need to make a new user on the new system with the same name, and hopefully the same UID, then copy the files over. There is user information in the system besides just /home/
16:18<retrospectacus>seomthing like that. It probably won't be painless :P
16:19<jhutchins_lt>uldics: If you're going from Debian to Debian, and you're the only user, it should be the same UID. Otherwise, as root, just change the ownership of the files using chown -R user:user
16:19<fnmueller>well, it's easy, most important is not to loose the data, UID and everything else can be changed easily
16:19<retrospectacus>UID should be 1000 on both, you may check: ls -n /home
16:20<jhutchins_lt>There are other distros that start the users at 500 instead of 1000.

16:43<sznitzeln>and i eventually reinstalled debian...
16:43<sznitzeln>i asked about this in #ati

16:44<sznitzeln>as i said, when i restarted my computer, it was completely black, i could only do anything in recovery mode
16:45<sznitzeln>atm i dont have any fglrx nor xorg drivers installed
16:45<babilen>sznitzeln: And if I remember correctly (might be another person though) I actually recommended to use the "radeon" driver
16:45<sznitzeln>i figured i want to fix the live version first to be able to experiment with drivers on it
16:45<babilen>sznitzeln: I mean, what did #ati give as reasons for it not working?
16:45-!-RobS [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
16:45<sznitzeln>yes, but you said that i could try the one liner if "radeon" didnt work
16:45<K6ORJ>babilen: I have been pulling my hair out for a few days trying to get "google earth" to work and it wont work on the free drivers. I did get it going though will read up on dkms.
16:46<sznitzeln>i dont think they gave an explicit reason, but they said that it works for some distribution possibly 'sid'
16:46<sznitzeln>and another distribution it workes 'sometimes'
16:46<babilen>sznitzeln: And it was clarified by gsimmons later on that the fglrx one-liner does not work for your card? (not sure if that was you, and I don't want to look in the logs)
16:46<sznitzeln>hm, i think he said that catalyst doesnt support hd6850
16:46<sznitzeln>but i looked at ati homepage
16:47<sznitzeln>hm w8, i have to look again to see if they say its supported or not
16:47<sznitzeln>but i think it is
16:47<babilen>K6ORJ: m-a is good as well. The main difference (from your perspective) is that dkms will recompile the module whenever you install a new kernel and are not left with a "unusable" system due to version mismatch of the m-a compiled module
16:47<sznitzeln>yes, it does actually support hd6800 series:
16:48<sznitzeln>but the person in #ati said that the echo command which edited some configuration file is not appropriate for squeeze
16:48<sznitzeln>i've seen other ppl complain in forums that their screen went completely black after installing the driver
16:48<K6ORJ>babilen: Ok so is there an easy way to switch to that or will switching corrupt my system?
16:49<babilen>K6ORJ: One second.
16:49<sznitzeln>the name of the guy was [Enrico]
16:49<babilen>K6ORJ: Probably just install the approapriate dkms package, but not sure and have to check a few things.
16:50<sznitzeln>brb, im going to try to boot my live version
16:50<babilen>sznitzeln: The echo command works. #ati is misinformed. I would be interested in the reasons why it did not work for you. Are you sure your card is supported by fglrx and the version of it in squeeze?
16:50<devil>or add the name of the source package to dkms.conf
16:50<sznitzeln>i mean its not echo which is faulted but the string after 'echo'
16:51<babilen>nothing wrong with that -- it basically just sets 'Driver "fglrx"' which is exactly what is needed

16:51<devil>babilen: sry, yes
16:52<sznitzeln>ill answer your question shortly
16:52<babilen>devil: No problem, that just wasn't entirely clear. My chat disentanglement algorithms are working well and typically preserve local coherence, but not always. Too much "graphic card" talk going on :)
16:52<sznitzeln>this is the part he complained about
16:52<sznitzeln>echo -e 'Section "Device"\n\tIdentifier "My GPU"\n\tDriver "fglrx"\nEndSection' > /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-fglrx.conf".
16:53<sznitzeln>babilen, i am sure that catalyst 11.1 supports my card
16:53<babilen>sznitzeln: Yes, I know what you/they referred to, but I can't see anything wrong with that. What should be problematic about that? Who did you talk to?
16:53<sznitzeln>babilen, i am not sure if the onliner installs the latest version of catalyst
16:53<babilen>sznitzeln: And that version is in squeeze?
16:53<babilen>sznitzeln: ok

16:55<babilen>sznitzeln: It is 10-1 -- so if your card needs >= 11-1 it is not supported by fglrx
16:55<EZmoney>to get fglrx to work on my ATI 4200 i just install the firmware-linux-nonfree
16:55<sznitzeln>ah i see
16:55<sznitzeln>i actually need 10.2 :)
16:56<sznitzeln>does fglrx occasionally update which catalyst it installs?
16:56<devil>EZmoney: fglrx does not need firmware-linux-nonfree
16:56<babilen>EZmoney: More or less, I would also recommend to install "libgl1-mesa-dri" for hardware rendering 3d support

17:32<dpkg>well, judd is a window into the Ultimate Debian Database (ask me about <udd>). Judd can look up package, PCI-Id and kernel config information. To get a list of commands, "/msg judd list Judd" "/msg judd list Piccy" and for usage information, "/msg judd help commandname". See also <source judd> <judd-packages> <judd-hardware>.
17:32<babilen>K6ORJ: it is in a *very* condensed format -- if you need help/explanations just let us know. make sure that you remove the nvidia driver package built and installd by m-a and "m-a clean" first

17:41<babilen>K6ORJ: I guess that reading google results *might* confuse you. The most important aspect of this is: and
17:41<dpkg>xorg can use files ending in the suffix .conf in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d for additional configuration. It is preferred to use an <empty xorg.conf> and create files (e.g. 20-nvidia.conf, 20-radeon.conf, 20-wacom.conf) there in order to configure a single device. You might have to create the directory yourself (mkdir /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d). See also "man 5 xorg.conf".

19:41-!-zem [] has joined #debian
19:41<dpkg>The reason you have to use dpkg --force-confmiss is because whenever your config files (<conffiles>) are gone, dpkg assumes you deleted them on purpose, and that you want them to stay deleted. You can also reinstall them using the following apt-get line: apt-get -o DPkg::Options::="--force-confmiss" --reinstall install <packagename>; or using aptitude, aptitude -o DPkg::Options::="--force-confmiss" reinstall <packagename>.

19:42<EeePC32>i use xfce4 and even in gdm login screen its rather slow
19:43<babilen>xor_: That ^^^ is the standard method to restore removed configuration files. It is typically assumed that you removed them on purpose and want them to stay that way. Also, xorg in squeeze typically configures itself automagically -- /msg dpkg empty xorg.conf -- and you only plave short snippets in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/
19:43<EeePC32>and its impossible to alter its speed via mouse settings, the new value cant apply

19:46<babilen>EeePC32: "man synaptics" -- you *should* be able to configure it with whatever mouse property thingie you are talking about though
19:47<xor_>babilen: if i can make it work, i will be much happier :) then i can start thinking on how i can fix this by updating as well
19:47<babilen>xor_: Ah, ok. You want to try that *before* you update to squeeze?

19:58<xor_>but.. if i update to squeeze, will it regrow the files? or should i just copy everything and do a huge reinstall of absolutely everything to make it work again?
19:58<xor_>or should i go through all the packages i have installed, and remove them one after another..
19:58<xor_>might destory something more :O

19:59<xor_>i backup the virtual machines, the databases, not the /etc/X11 directory. (since that is a bonus, i never bought this machine to make it have a screen.)
20:00<babilen>xor_: If that is indeed the case I would actually recommend to backup all data you care about (/home and /etc in particular) and install squeeze from scratch. If you have a dedicated /home partition you can just keep that and reinstall.
20:01<babilen>xor_: What kind of machine is this?
20:01<xor_>i has had the machine for like 3 years, never plugged any screen into it. then my laptop that i am using has started breaking apart, so i was thinking, maybe i can has a desktop too :) so i plugged a screen into it and i was a happier person
20:01-!-eknahm [] has joined #debian
20:01<babilen>And I guess "the databases" implies that it is a bit of a job to reconfigure the system.
20:02<xor_>noh, it very modular and simple. the debian box doesnt contain anything at all, just a virtualbox (which i regret, but i cant change now when i started using it)
20:02-!-midget [] has left #debian []
20:02<babilen>xor_: You *could* try: aptitude -o DPkg::Options::="--force-confmiss" reinstall ~i

20:10<Stereo>I can't remember at which stage you're supposed to choose the gui installer
20:10<Habstinat>babilen: No, it's already installed. My installation media is out.
20:10<Stereo>maybe right when it boots?
20:10<Stereo>but Habstinat, I imagine you're happy with not having to wait through installation again
20:11<Stereo>!install gnome
20:11<dpkg>To install GNOME: install the 'gnome' package to install everything, the 'gnome-desktop-environment' package for slightly less stuff, or the 'gnome-core' package for even less. You will need X installed as well, ask me about <install x>.
20:11<Habstinat>I selected the text based installer, but I didn't know that would give me a text-based system.
20:11<abrotman>'aptitude xorg gdm3 gnome'
20:11<Stereo>this and x should take care of the dependencies
20:11<abrotman>that's all he needs to get started

20:19<sret>or can someone recommend one? thanks

20:20-!-ed [~ed@] has quit []
20:21<babilen>Habstinat: I'm off. Have a good night. You need to install firmware for you NIC. Do "lspci -nn|grep -i ethernet" → get the PCIID (the abcd:1234 in [] at the end → /msg judd pciid PCIID → ask dpkg about your NIC, download and install firmware, modprobe appropriate module, ifconfig -a → interface there ? → ifup IFACE
20:21<Habstinat>babilen: Thanks a lot.
20:22<babilen>Habstinat: If the NIC if working already (you can see the interface in ifconfig -a) just add a line "iface eth0 inet dhcp" to /e/n/i and try "ifup eth0"
20:22<babilen>the earlier steps are just required to identify your NIC, get information about the module that supports it and so on
20:23<babilen>Just because you said that your network card needs firmware

Opera is Freeware (>= version 8.5), but NOT Open-Source. It is not included in Debian and therefore not supported by #debian. To install, ask me about <opera apt> and see . #opera on
21:21<abrotman>it's not in Debian, wecan't distribute it (yet)

22:44-!-Daskreech [~skreech@] has joined #debian
22:44<winsen>what is it ?
22:45<agentc>winsen: 50 kb/s upstream only, it is the source of an experimental unfinished operation system
22:45-!-silentM [~def@] has quit []
22:46-!-jsubl2 [] has quit []
22:46<agentc>winsen: it can boot up, using protected mode with flat-memory management. textconsole and so on, but that is just the little basic for a kernel, project was stopped 1999
22:48<winsen><agentc>ok, that's why i couldn't extract files

22:50<agentc>winsen: unzip either with pkzip / unzip, or use windows commander / total commander. .... this archive is created by me and tronical (tronical is kde developer)
22:50-!-reklipz [] has joined #debian
22:50<agentc>winsen: dont ask about tronical, it is maybe 13 years ago i saw him last time
22:50-!-amdgoon [~amdgoon@] has joined #debian
22:52<agentc>agentc: it was experience in life, he did the memory-management source, and the linker (plink) , i did the relocation source, textconsole etc. but all others we did it together
22:53-!-Martian67 [] has joined #debian
22:54<agentc>winsen: when you see the source, DLM means dynamicly loadable module, which is not finished, but for some events its working. generally this source is unuseable cause incomplete, but a good expirience how an operation system is starting from begin ... :-)
22:54<winsen>agentc>i see , and you work in witch socity?
22:55<agentc>winsen: i'm lonly, but i am here when somebody want contact or help

22:55<jordanb>why isi ceweasel so far behind firefox?
22:55-!-dreamer000 [~dreamer@] has quit [Quit: Verlassend]
22:56<winsen>agentc>i am sure that i've to learn more with you
22:56<jordanb>I can't believe firefox 3.6 was released over a year ago and debian testing is still on 3.5
22:56-!-NickyP [] has quit [Quit: ChatZilla 0.9.86 [SeaMonkey 2.0.11/20101123124820]]
22:56<winsen>i mean i'll learn....
22:57<sahko>i would be more than happy if it were still 1.5
22:57<agentc>winsen: :=) maybe :) i can show you where to get all that knowledge, but you have to learn yourself
22:57<sahko>that thing was fast
22:57<sahko>but so is 4
22:57<jordanb>yeah it was pretty bloat free but it'd be so far behind current web standards
22:57-!-psych787 [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
22:58<jordanb>sahko: But if debian can't even get 3.6, how long will we have to wait for 4?
22:58<winsen><agentc>it's true
22:58<sahko>jordanb: theres mozilla binary builds available which are very easy to use
22:59<sahko>if you're in a hurry
22:59*amphi mumbles midori
22:59<winsen><agentc>and knowledge is + infinity
22:59<jordanb>syndicate: Cool!
23:00<agentc>winsen: infinity when we leave information for others when we go
23:00<agentc>winsen: immortal when we leave information for others when we go

23:02<syndicate>midori is a nice browser too
23:02<syndicate>if you just need a simple web browser
23:02<amphi>syndicate: as opposed to what?
23:02<abrotman>agentc: have you been to #debian-offtopic ?
23:03<sahko>firefox has the only bearable implemention of adblock
23:03<syndicate>iceweasel 3.5..., midori feels so much lighter
23:03<agentc>abrotman: sorry, im quit
23:04<winsen>i am agree with you 100% in condition knowledge you guive brings good things and not bad
23:04-!-barbanegra [] has joined #debian
23:04<syndicate>feature-wise, iceweasel/firefox is unbeatable through the use of add-ons/extensions
23:04<agentc>winsen: out of offtopic, private query ?
23:04<amphi>sahko: I see no adverts with the adblock extension in midori
23:04-!-barbanegra is now known as Guest1660
23:04<sahko>amphi: it has it built in?
23:05<jordanb>this package requires xulrunner 2.0 which isn't even in debian experiementl
23:05<amphi>yes; you must configure what filter lists to use
23:05<amphi>sahko: ^^
23:05<sahko>right, didnt remember that
23:05<yondering>jordanb, try prism
23:06<amphi>sahko: and enable the extension ;)
23:06-!-abrotman [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
23:08<syndicate>i think xulrunner 2 is available at
