00:02-!-Huns [] has joined #debian
00:02<Huns>hi. is there some way to get the debian installer to install i386? my hosting provider swears up and down they put a 386 cd in the drive but when I run arch after the install I get x86_64.
00:04<sney>the current debian 6 netinstall iso is hybrid
00:04<sney>that is, it can do either/or and I believe makes the decision based on autodetection
00:04-!-winsen [] has quit [Quit: Quitte]
00:04<Huns>is there a way to force it to i386? there's no option I was able to find
00:06<sney>I'm not sure, the best way would probably be to fedex your host the actual disc you want them to use
00:06<sney>but why do you want to install i386 if your hardware is amd64?
00:06-!-ram0 [~ram@] has joined #debian
00:06<Huns>amd64 has broken things (like alien)
00:06<sney>ahh, alien .
00:07<Huns>basically it's been tooth and nail getting my stuff set up on this machine, whereas the 32-bit debian machines I have elsewhere have always just worked
00:07<Huns>like it wouldn't run stuff I put in /etc/init.d and symlinked to /etc/rc2.d, or give me any error messages at all, whereas the exact same procedure on 32-bit just worked.
00:08-!-aranax [~aranax@] has quit [Quit: Saliendo]
00:08<sney>sounds like you have a specialized setup. ok, more realistic version of the fedex option: link your host to the i686 cd1 iso, and tell them you want them to use EXACTLY THAT image for the install

00:14<Some_Person>If you install using CD1, do you get different stuff if you have an active internet connection vs not having one?
00:14<Huns>good question
00:15<Huns>I'll try installing it but not telling it to check mirrors
00:15<Huns>or just not configure eth0
00:15<Some_Person>Someone on freenode just told me they installed but got a full desktop with a lot of stuff (openoffice, etc.) when they installed with one, but when I installed without, I got a more minimal desktop
00:16-!-heath [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:16<Some_Person>The only differences in our installs as far as I can tell is that I didn't have an active internet connection and that I did it back when squeeze was RC1

00:21<daniel>hello ™
00:27-!-Piet_ [] has joined #debian
00:31<Huns>reinstalled with the i386 iso (even checked the dvd label) and didn't configure eth0 and it STILL installed x86_64. I am absolutely amazed
00:32-!-agentc [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:32<Huns>why on earth would debian even have a 386 iso if it has 64-bit packages LOL
00:32<sney>something is going wrong
00:33-!-hele_ [] has joined #debian
00:33<Huns>here's the problem: someone made the assumption "no one could possibly want to install the 32 bit version on a 64-bit machine"
00:33<syndicate>could be sources.list

00:45<Huns>is anyone who has knowledge of the debian installer present. would really like to know how to override architecture auto-detect
00:45-!-ottoshmidt [] has joined #debian
00:47<sney>Huns: try contacting the installer team. at the bottom
00:47<bones_was_here>interesting problem, must be new in squeeze, lenny i386 used to install fine on amd64 hardware
00:48<sney>it seems to be the hybrid installer cd is detecting his amd64 hardware and not offering an option
00:48<Huns>the dvd label even says i385
00:48<kblessinggr>so was curious if there was anything similar to BSD jails on debian squeeze
00:48<bones_was_here>do the netinstall images have this hybrid feature?
00:49<sney>bones_was_here: yep
00:49<sney>well, the default one linked on anyway
00:49<atperez>When using directfb [and with nvidia drivers], is it possible to set FRAMEBUFFER environment variable to /dev/nvidia0?
00:49<Huns>I will probably have to figure out some way to use debootstrap to force an install of the i386 version w/ chroot which sounds about as easy as a root canal
00:51<bones_was_here>atperez: you should not use any framebuffer drivers with the proprietary nvidia drivers - doing so can cause crashes and other odd behaviour (not sure about your question, i never tried doing it - my nvidia crashes often enough without a framebuffer driver running)
00:51<Some_Person>One of my friends installed squeeze i386 on an amd64-supporting machine -- he had no issues
00:51<sney>Huns: debootstrap is not bad, actually.. it's a good idea
00:52<Huns>did he install it or does he think he installed it? :)
00:52<Huns>tell him to run arch and see if it says x86_64
00:52<Some_Person>He did. He tried to compile something that required amd64 and it complained
00:52-!-hele_ [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:52<atperez>Thanks for your info, bones.
00:53<Some_Person>So yeah, he really had i386
00:53<Huns>then your friend is luckier than I am
00:54<Some_Person>Besides, how can one CD contain packages for *both* architectures? I don't think there's room
00:54<Huns>is there some way to specify architecture in sources.list? maybe I can do a dist-upgrade and it will magically work.
00:54-!-otypoks_ [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:54<Huns>the label on the DVD shows up in the installer. it specifically says i386

00:56<Some_Person>Maybe the DVD version does this check? My friend used the CD version
00:56-!-culpower [] has joined #debian
00:58<Some_Person>By the way, you said you installed with no internet connection? Does it differ from if you install with one?
00:58-!-ravenbird [] has quit [Quit: Nmu'ltes]
00:58<Huns>tried it both ways. no change.
00:58-!-ravenbird [] has joined #debian
00:59<Some_Person>Ah, but you used the DVD, which makes it different anyway from me
00:59<Huns>this literally makes me want to punch things

01:46<doubledutch> I am EXTREMELY worried about this. Using Debian Wheezy on an AMD/nVidia Desktop (i386) and I stuck a 4gb Flash Drive into the USB - and got a popup dialogue box with this Kernel Error! First one I've ever seen!

01:49<doubledutch>Should I be extremely worried about this/attempt to format this flash drive?
01:49-!-Zaba [] has joined #debian
01:49<And1>Good morning. Yesterday everything was fine, now I got a problem with my raid. It seems one partition is missing in 'cat /proc/partitions'. Though other partitions from this device are listed. Any ideas what may be the problem?
01:50<doubledutch>Regarding the above issue, any emails to will be met with great joy and possible reward! Must leave on short notice! Thank anybody whom is willing/able!
01:50<bones_was_here>doubledutch: 2.6.32 sucks, i dont know why debian used it for a stable release :( i have a machine that hard locks when running 2.6.32, if i plug a flash drive in/out a couple of times
01:50<doubledutch>Really. Wow. THANK YOU bones_was_here!
01:51<bones_was_here>my advice: compile a newer kernel
01:51<bones_was_here>2.6.37 is a nice release
01:51<doubledutch>I will continue to look into it tomorrow.
01:51<doubledutch>Roger that, thank-you!
01:51<Arrowmaster>2.6.32 runs stable for everybody else
01:51<bones_was_here>not quite everybody
01:51<jm_>doubledutch: also check for other kernel messages (dmesg) at the same time
01:52-!-heinzes [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
01:52<Arrowmaster>doubledutch: that flash drive is ntfs formated?
01:52<And1>Here's my dmesg, /proc/partitions and /proc/mdstat -- using debian sid, 2.6.37 ... fs is ext4.
01:53<bones_was_here>2.6.32 also causes a massive spam of interrupts related to the IPMI interface on a server i have, doesnt happen with other kernel versions
01:54<bones_was_here>dealing with all the interrupts hogs half a cpu core, increases power draw, and prevents the IPMI interface from actually working

02:08-!-lillecarl [] has joined #debian
02:08<ultra420>gnome's resolution is 1024X768 now.
02:08-!-Yvemath [i98sh3ll@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
02:08<ultra420>i wanted it to be 1440X900
02:09<bones_was_here>And1: you might have to search syslogs if there is no mail (but you should probably look into fixing that, you need to know when there's an array event)
02:10-!-mosno [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
02:10<dpkg>Usually X autodetects the resolutions and display modes supported by your hardware; use <xrandr> to list and switch between them. If autodetection fails or isn't good enough, you will need to create an <xorg.conf> and set the HorizSync/VertRefresh values for your monitor, and possibly add a Modeline. See 'man xorg.conf' for details and ask me about <modeline>.
02:10<jm_>ultra420: ^^^^^
02:10<bones_was_here>And1: actually by default it would probably have emailed a user that is aliased for root in /etc/aliases - that user may not exist anymore
02:11-!-quasisane [] has joined #debian
02:11<ultra420>i used xrandr but the best resolution is 1024X768...and others are 800X600
02:12<ultra420>hi... dear jm_ . i m newbie here ,i do typed very slow

02:15-!-Zekah [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
02:15<jm_>then you need to read you X logfile to find out why that is so

02:17-!-edog [~edog@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
02:18<ultra420>than means my lcd not support 60hz when the resolution is 1440x900
02:20-!-toloykhan_ [~toloykhan@] has joined #debian
02:20<bones_was_here>some LCDs report incorrect or incomplete EDID information - in which case autodetection won't set the correct mode, since the LCD claims it can't support it

02:21<bones_was_here>(that isn't necessarily the case here)
02:21<toloykhan_>hello there any one have knowledge with iptables
02:22<ultra420>hey,dear toloykhan_ you could just typed ur question here ,that would be better
02:22<dpkg>If you have a question, just ask! For example: "I have a problem with ___; I'm running Debian version ___. When I try to do ___ I get the following output ___. I expected it to do ___." Don't ask if you can ask, if anyone uses it, or pick one person to ask. We're all volunteers; make it easy for us to help you. If you don't get an answer try a few hours later or on See <smart questions><errors>.
02:22<toloykhan_>i need to know where is the iptables log stored, the statement
02:22<toloykhan_><dissipate> uRock, thanks for trying to find i
02:23-!-Psirus [] has joined #debian
02:23<toloykhan_>ultra420, thanx this is the statement $IPTABLES -A TCPF_CHECK -p tcp --tcp-flags ALL FIN,URG,PSH -m limit \
02:23<toloykhan_> --limit 5/minute -j LOG --log-level 7 --log-prefix "NMAP-CHECK:"
02:23<ultra420> is much too complicated for me..
02:24<toloykhan_>i need where is the log stored to view it , i use ubuntu 10.04
02:24-!-Zekah [] has joined #debian
02:25<bones_was_here>toloykhan_: it goes to syslog by default (and it'll appear in dmesg too)
02:25<bones_was_here>iptables is a front end for the kernel's netfilter code, so the output from it is part of the kernel's output
02:25<bones_was_here>see: man 8 iptables
02:26<toloykhan_>bones_was_here, how to view it ?
02:26<ultra420>he just told you to man iptables
02:26<bones_was_here>toloykhan_: dmesg, or tail -f /var/log/dmesg for live updates

02:27<bones_was_here>toloykhan_: also:
02:27<dpkg>Ubuntu is based on Debian, but it is not Debian, and it is unlikely to live up to Debian's standards (see <Debian policy>). Only Debian is supported on #debian. Use #ubuntu ( instead. Even if the channel happens to be less helpful, support for distributions other than Debian is offtopic on #debian. See also <based on debian>.

02:48<fatzgenfatz>Hello, can anyone help me with grub? I want (or have to) boot win7 as default and I don't know what I have to write to /etc/default/grub as "grub_default". Is it the number as it shows in the grub boot menu?
02:48<insmod>Psirus; video card isn't set at proper resolution or driver
02:49-!-krayn [] has joined #debian
02:49<Psirus>so how would i go about changing that…it is running on the proprietary nvidia driver btw
02:49<insmod>Psirus; just use startx at lower res or screen if that works i am right -- is it nvidia or ati - you prob never built that into the kernel
02:49<jm_>fatzgenfatz: which version of grub?
02:50<insmod>Psirus; there i t is
02:50<jm_>Psirus: did you rebuild nvidia module for new kernel version?
02:50<Psirus>probably not…how do I do that?
02:50<insmod><jm_ i guess no
02:50<jm_>depends on which packages you are using: put it on a pastebin: dpkg -l | grep nvidia
02:51<insmod>Psirus; i would dl the nvidia file at the site then run the run file
02:51<jm_>don't use nvidia installer if you want support from #debian
02:51<insmod>jm_ no just install it then done
02:52<fatzgenfatz>@jm I use grub2
02:52-!-ultra420 [~ultra420@] has quit [Quit: Lost terminal]

02:52<fatzgenfatz>@jm 1.98+20100804
02:52<insmod>jm_ he will if he wants proprietary
02:52<jm_>insmod: no, debian has it packaged
02:53<insmod>jm_ not the latest and greatest
02:53-!-quiritus [] has joined #debian
02:54<jm_>fatzgenfatz: right, just set GRUB_DEFAULT to the desired number
02:55<fatzgenfatz>jm_: ok, I have 8 entries in the grub menu, so I have to enter grub_default=7 so it will start the last one?
02:56<jm_>fatzgenfatz: looks like it yes, just remember that this number will change if you install additional kernels
02:56<jm_>Psirus: use m-a
02:56<daniel>there is a striking parallel between 1.- how the institutions of higher education want well-rounded citizens but only accept or award a selected few. and, 2.- how copyright holders are interested in IP but restrict IP so that only few people can use it..
02:56<fatzgenfatz>jm_: ok, thanks a lot! :)

07:38<r0ger>is it possible to unencrypt a des3 key file so i don't have to enter a password everytime i restart apache? i found how to do it for an rsa key but (following the first google result when i searched) i used des3 to gen my key and i don't want to have to get another one signed if possible
07:38<j0sfg>i have installed cups, and added HP LaserJet 4L via the web interface. "lpstat -p -d" shows printer is idle and enabled. printing from icerweasel seems to complete, but the printer does not even light up.

09:56<Xenguy>Hi, I have an anacron question: On Debian anacron (when installed) seems setup by default to run main root cronjobs transparently without additional configuration. My question is, what if I want to ensure that a non-root user account's crontab jobs are run by anacron assuming the system (a laptop) is not powered on 24/7. IOW is it recommended to use anacron as a non-root user, and if so, is there a recommended method to configure anacron to run a norm
09:56<Xenguy>Or is there a better way?

09:59<dpkg>CUT is "constantly usable testing", a proposal to make a rolling branch of Debian. See the proposal: and the discussion:
09:59<babilen>Lantizia: That ^^^ is currently being discussed and will be even more discussed in this years debconf ...
09:59<koollman>Lantizia: using some package 'linux' depending on any of these would work, assuming the highest version is picked at installation time
09:59<Lantizia>koollman, babilen, that's nice and I'll look - but what I'm on about is some way to _mark_ what is essential and what is not as updates

10:00-!-arw [~familia@] has joined #debian
10:00<koollman>well, there are ways to tag packages, but you would have to create a tool that use your specific tags
10:00<babilen>Lantizia: koollman's idea might give you that. Use a number of metapackages that always depend on the version you want to have installed, which is not necessarily the newest.
10:01<Lantizia>ah yeah metapackages would do it
10:01<Lantizia>i was more looking for a apt-get upgrade vs apt-get complete-upgrade
10:01<babilen>But I don't quite see the point in that. Every single update is more or less important, and you'd especially hav to distinguish between security related updates and feature updates (and both)

10:01-!-ao2 [~u@2001:1418:117::1] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
10:01<ramnet>you could a seperate repo for important updates and use some apt-pinning magic
10:02<babilen>What are *important* updates?
10:02<Lantizia>this is why it's a discussion :P
10:02<SynrG>it's all relative. it may be very important to fix the kernel for hardware that you don't have
10:02<babilen>I find it very hard to distinguish between major/minor important/unimportant udpates in a rolling release.
10:02<ramnet>look at backports repo for an idea about how that might work
10:03<Lantizia>see i love the idea of using a rolling release, but not the constant updating
10:03<SynrG>that's why as an admin you should use apt-listchanges and decide for yourself
10:03<babilen>Lantizia: That is somehow a bit contradictory. You are basically after a distribution with a much faster release cycle?
10:04<SynrG>unfortunately, nothing saves you from the work of actually reading the changes and making decisions to upgrade or not on a case-by-case basis
10:04<ramnet>isn't the whole point of a rolling release the constant updating :)
10:04<babilen>SynrG: exactly
10:04<koollman>Lantizia: ok. let's not talk debian. A system I've seen that works well enough for rolling releases is 'profiles' as used in gentoo. when you do a regular upgrade, the profile is used to know what is 'current' and can be upgraded, and what is 'unstable'. the user can later change the profile when a new one is released, which will change which packages are seen as stable/unstable
10:04<babilen>ramnet: absolutely ... that is the nature of a rolling release isn't it?
10:04<koollman>Lantizia: now, I'm not quite sure how I would do that reusing apt/dpkg
10:04<Lantizia>ok lets put it this way... my linux kernel is essential - i need it updating, more for extra hardware support and bug fixes than extra features... so that is important
10:04<Lantizia>but my copy of firefox (except security updates) isn't as important
10:04<SynrG>koollman: who decides what goes into the profiles? how do i know their choices meet my needs?
10:05<babilen>koollman: Is that the x86 vs ~x86 thing or something different?
10:05<Lantizia>i don't always want to issue apt-get upgrade and have it pull a new version of firefox i didn't need or want
10:05<SynrG>i can't see any sensible way to implement this in a rolling release.
10:05<koollman>babilen: yes. well, a bit more than that, since selecting a profile is effectively changing a 'branch' or major release
10:05<babilen>Lantizia: Nobody but you can make that decision for you

10:05<SynrG>CUT is at least comprehensible because it chooses some points to freeze things ... and then "stabilises" and releases that.
10:05<Lantizia>babilen, as a user I don't want to make the decision all the time
10:05<koollman>SynrG: as for any distributions, developpers of said distribution :)
10:06-!-foolano [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
10:06<babilen>koollman: Ah, I am not familiar with these "profiles" -- Who maintains them and how do I know that they'll fit my needs?
10:06<SynrG>but CUT is not rolling
10:06<Lantizia>actually what I'm suggesting is rather like Windows... it's crucial windows keeps itself up to date... but not your desktop applications
10:06<SynrG>it's a compromise (and a good one, i think)
10:06-!-jibel_ [] has joined #debian
10:06<babilen>SynrG: We have rolling now, but i thought that the ideas that revolved around CUT might just be what Lantizia is after
10:06-!-jibel_ [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
10:06<SynrG>Lantizia: Windows doesn't have anything close to rolling
10:06<ramnet>apt-pin the packages you don't want to automatically update lower - problem solved. or am i missing something?
10:07<Lantizia>so as a rolling release you can be sure your OS is secure and feature rich - but up to you if you want the latest media player/browser etc... until you get to the point where the version your using atm no longer has security support and your meant to uypgrade
10:07<koollman>Lantizia: that's still different. and definitely not rolling release :)
10:07<SynrG>Lantizia: what windows has sounds more like CUT
10:07<babilen>Lantizia: Then you just want upgrades for the kernel?
10:07<Lantizia>brb phone
10:07<koollman>Lantizia: windows is closer to debian for that kind of upgrades. stuff marked as 'critical' in windows updates would be stuff ending up in a security upgrade, or a regular upgrade, on debian
10:08<socialist>i like the idea of CUT
10:08<koollman>babilen: I'm not sure I can explain them perfectly. they are of course maintain by the gentoo developpers (or by you, if you make your own, or someone else, if you want ... )

10:14<koollman>babilen: . the profile chown is the default stable, default/linux/x86/10.0 , there are other subprofiles, basically changing the default selection and a few other things. then a release is made, like 10.1, changing the versions needed by the system
10:15<babilen>koollman: let me have a look
10:15<Xenguy>On a related note, does a utility like rcconf still work for turning boot scripts on/off, with squeeze's new "dependency based boot sequencing"?
10:15<koollman>(I'm looking for a gentoo installed box to paste the content of a profile, but I can't find any right now)

11:53<dpkg>i guess insserv is a dependency-based <init> system that is compatible with <sysvinit> and is the default from squeeze onwards. See also <upstart>. To use insserv, your init scripts need to have tags at the top of them that describe what they depend on to permit the correct ordering of the init scripts (see <missing lsb tags>).

12:59<Torsten_W>danilo, then usb is default but the onboard is usuable, if you put that as /etc/modprobe.d/mysound.conf
12:59<babilen>danilo: The problem you are facing is basically options snd-usb-audio index=-2 in /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf

14:27<dpkg>Is apt trying to remove packages that it thinks were automatically installed? This happens when you "aptitude install gnome" and then later remove bits of it causing the gnome meta-package to be uninstalled and then all its dependencies. Fix this by running "aptitude unmarkauto packagename" on strategically chosen packages, or reinstall the <metapackage> (apt-get also has unmarkauto from squeeze onwards).

17:26-!-sumo [] has joined #debian
17:26<lefedy>So when you say it is the output of SSH would I use the sshd_config file (or whatever the name is)?
17:27<lefedy>I did not see anything in there that looked like what I needed.
17:27-!-sweil [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
17:27<daemonkeeper>Its the client whichs prompts you and you can't change the password prompt unless I'm completely wrong.
17:28<lefedy>Okay... this is turning out to be more in depth than I had imagined.
17:29<daemonkeeper>You could use key and not getting any prompt at all?
17:29<lefedy>I run the server so I should be able to edit it if I can find the right file.
17:29<daemonkeeper>The server doesn't matter. The /client/ prompts you for a password which sends it encrypted to the remote end.
17:30<lefedy>Oh I see.
17:30<lefedy>So its not serverside
17:30-!-Blacker47 [] has quit [Quit: Verlassend]
17:30<lefedy>Oh well. I guess its not that big of a deal.

22:36<sney>of course, when you fight an OEM for a Windows refund, you're only causing trouble for them. Microsoft has already been paid, that's how reselling works.
22:36<sney>and here we go into offtopic. I haven't done ati drivers the debian way before, I wonder how much of a pain it is
22:38<bones_was_here>if enough people cause trouble for the OEM, they might start offering machines not bundled with windows :)

22:41<retrospectacus>winsen: apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree
22:42<bones_was_here>you'll need to add contrib and/or non-free to your sources.list for the above to work ^
22:42<EZmoney>you can download flash movies without installing flash,and watch them in VLC etc.
22:43<retrospectacus>yes apt-get install youtube-dl
