04:24<berto>you can boot a debian CD image from a USB stick, but that's not what the installer page suggests:
04:24<berto>am I missing anything?
04:25-!-vook [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
04:25<ctaylor>berto: yes, you can boot from USB
04:25<berto>ctaylor: yeah, I know, but why doesn't the install page explain that?
04:26<berto>one might think that you need a different image
04:26<ctaylor>its in the installation howto, there is also a link to download the USB images on that squeeze d-i page
04:27<ctaylor>bottom right on the list of downloads
04:27<berto>yes, my question is why they are separate from the CD images
04:27<berto>since CD images appear to work just fine
04:27<berto>for USB drives
04:27-!-gandalfn [] has joined #debian
04:29<ctaylor>berto: because that doesnt always work. You need to be able to boot the USB stick in order to mount the CD image from it typically
04:29<ctaylor>IE that's what the USB stick images are for IIRC
04:29<jm_>that's how it was before squeeze so maybe just a leftover
04:30<berto>jm_: that's my impression
04:30-!-classical [~classical@] has joined #debian
04:30<ctaylor>I haven't used the USB images since pre-sarge
04:30<berto>I'd appreciate a note on that page saying that "you can just use one of these images in your USB drive. if they don't work, then go here"
04:31<berto>or something like that

05:24<nickzxcv>SynrG: yeah, i think the hostname command gets it from /proc/sys/kernel/hostname
05:24<nickzxcv>but (none) isn't a valid argument to the hostname command
05:24<nickzxcv>so /etc/init.d/ fails

05:36<nickzxcv>what would be a better way?
05:38<mkad>streuner__, there is not error just apt-get removed pidgin
05:38<mkad>streuner__, pidgin : Depends: libpurple0 (>= 2.7.0) but it is not going to be installed
05:39<nickzxcv>i read another bug where somebody said there should be better input validation from /etc/hostname and the maintainer said that was stupid
05:39<mkad>streuner__, empathy : Depends: libgstfarsight0.10-0 (>= 0.0.1) but it is not going to be installed
05:39<nickzxcv>but this is something from the kernel instead
05:39<mkad>streuner__, so basicaly there is no gui instant messanger in sid now
05:39<streuner__>mkad: what does BTS say about?

06:01-!-Esteban [] has joined #debian
06:01<R33D3M33R>its a cable connection to a router
06:02<R33D3M33R>i used to have ubuntu installed and the connection didn't drop, so it might be a issue of this system
06:02<R33D3M33R>connection on other computers doesn't drop, but those don't have debian installed
06:03<jm_>how do you know it drops?
06:03<R33D3M33R>for example: webpages don't load and clementine-player stops playing radio stream
06:04<R33D3M33R>it's like 30 seconds and then it gets up again and it works
06:04<R33D3M33R>i wasn't on the irc at that moment, so i don't know if it will also drop

06:09<R33D3M33R>i don't know why there is nothing in the logs
06:10<jm_>because it doesn't look like an error that would be logged
06:10<R33D3M33R>aha, that makes sense

06:11<R33D3M33R>i think it is, if PPP means ADSL
06:11<foray>#debian-russian @
06:12<jm_>right, in that case you can try some more things - 1. have ADSL modem do PPP if it can (some can do this), 2. have your Debian system do PPP
06:14<R33D3M33R>so, if i understood correctly i should connect directly to the modem and see if the connection drops?
06:14<jm_>yup, but option will only work if modem can do PPP&NAT
06:15<jm_>option 1.
06:16<R33D3M33R>i think it can

07:08-!-francisco [~francisco@] has quit []
07:09<SynrG>and check uptime on your router. are you watching lights on it? 30 seconds sounds suspiciously like the amount of time it might take for a router to reboot itself
07:10<jm_>well in that case IRC connection would surely drop
07:10<R33D3M33R>in the info it says: (747256 secs since boot)
07:11<R33D3M33R>so uptime is ok
07:12<SynrG>doing anything that would place heavy demands on the network? torrent with high connection count?
07:12<R33D3M33R>and the same for modem:   Online time: 10:24:56s
07:12<R33D3M33R>torrent is running, but connections are limited at 130 maximum
07:13<jm_>does it also happens when torrents are not active?
07:13<R33D3M33R>i think it did happen, when ktorrent wasn't running, but i'm not sure

08:57<jpluscplusm>how can I do a (netinst+preseed) install without pulling in all the standard packages?
08:57<jpluscplusm>i'm sure it used to be possible ...
08:58-!-jm_ [] has quit [Quit: Disconnecting]
08:59<jpluscplusm>the FAQ says "If you do a default Debian installation all the packages of priority Standard or higher will be installed in your system", kind of implying there's a way to avoid that default behaviour ...
08:59<jpluscplusm>or to tweak it, at least :-)

09:13<themill>the guest additions will be from the hardware detection bits of the installer

10:54<eponymous>(this is all for testing/development work for myself, not for a group of developers)
10:54<winnie_>hello everyone
10:54<SynrG>my preferred way to develop anything web-targetted is to use some small personal webserver in the workspace ...
10:54-!-Robin_Laptop [] has joined #debian
10:54<winnie_>stupid me went without thinking and bought a laptop battery from china
10:54<SynrG>and not have the main web server have any access to it.
10:55<SynrG>then have your makefile for the project have some target to publish to the real web server
10:55<winnie_>suprisingly, 10 days later i did get the battery, and even more suprisingly, i am on my 2nd and half hour without charging it as we speak
10:55<SynrG>during development, test everything with the personal web server only
10:55<SynrG>until you have it all working, then as root, publish
10:55<winnie_>my problem is that the battery came with a driver CD to be installed on windows
10:55-!-UpAllNightBrain [] has joined #debian
10:55<winnie_>i've never heard of drivers for a laptop battery before
10:55<eponymous>hmm, I just test on the main webserver because at the end of the day it's nothing more than a testing environment
10:56<SynrG>eponymous: there are plenty of personal web servers. java has one called ... the name slips my mind ... i'm sure eclipse comes with something bundled tho
10:56<winnie_>it does work, but it doesnt update the percentage of it as long as i am running debian, but only when i restart...
10:56<eponymous>when my sites are ready, I upload to hosting sites online.
10:56<winnie_>google doesnt turn up anything
10:57<SynrG>eponymous: jetty
10:57<eponymous>hmm, well I'll look into that but right now I'm going to try creating a group and giving it read and write permission ...
10:57<cmot>CaBa: horde has a calendar module; there's kolab (not sure if the web frontend is in debian though)
10:57<sney>winnie_: is the cd really drivers or some kind of management software?
10:57<eponymous>SynrG, thank's for the informed help... as you can see, I'm still a total newbie to development within Debian.
10:57<winnie_>its not management software
10:57<SynrG>eponymous: np
10:58<winnie_>it seems to be some kind of bios patch?
10:58<cmot>CaBa: there's also citadel (never looked at it though)

11:00<winnie_>i know my question sounds very vague but i was just wondering if there is some kernel module with extra battery drivers if there even is such a thing
11:00<cmot>winnie_: batteries should all be supported by standard acpi drivers as far as I know
11:00<sney>there are a few kernel modules and sets of modules for specific weird laptop hardware acpi stuff
11:01<sney>i.e. toshiba
11:01<cmot>winnie_: was the old battery supported with that laptop?
11:01<winnie_>sney is that in the debian repos?
11:01<winnie_>yeah no probs but it was just dead as hell
11:01<sney>it's just included, you can find them in /lib/modules
11:02<winnie_>it does recognize the battery
11:02-!-lopippo [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
11:02<sney>but it probably doesn't include your device
11:02<winnie_>and it even gives the right watts
11:02<cmot>usually these modules should be autoloaded by udev at boot, not?
11:02<winnie_>the laptop is a vaio so the acpi modules are already not exacly linux optimal
11:02<winnie_>but the original battery worked fine
11:03<winnie_>its the weird chinese one that doesnt update
11:03<cmot>hmm. do you have a dual boot windows or a 2nd vaio to check if the battery works as it should on windows?
11:03<winnie_>first it was stuck at 50%, then i rebooted for some other reason, and sudenly it showed 10% and 20 minutes time left
11:03<winnie_>that was an hour ago
11:03<winnie_>hell no i dont have windows :)
11:04<sney>oh, it's a vaio? ouch
11:04-!-Guest3111 is now known as simonrvn
11:04<winnie_>i should've learned from my first vaio..
11:04<SynrG>you know gnome-power-manager makes predictions based on past performance ...
11:04<SynrG>if you're using that, initially you'll get strange values. after a while, it learns.
11:05<SynrG>have a look at its graphs
11:05-!-simonrvn is now known as Guest3116
11:05<winnie_>well that explains everything
11:05-!-dzakub [dzakub@] has joined #debian
11:05<winnie_>yeah it only has a 2 hour old graph
11:05<winnie_>thats how long i've been using the new battery
11:05<SynrG>it even has graphs showing accuracy of its predictions at various charge levels
11:05<winnie_>but shouldnt the current percentange of charge be right?
11:05<SynrG>well, just use 'acpi -b' for that
11:06<SynrG>it has no concept of history, i think
11:06<sney>all it gets is a mAh reading though, right
11:06<winnie_>Battery 0: Discharging, 15%, 00:25:12 remaining
11:06<winnie_>it gives the identical value as gnome-power-manager
11:06-!-merez [] has joined #debian
11:06<jhutchins_lt>winnie_: It has a pretty good idea where full charge is, but no idea how far down the bottom is.
11:06<winnie_>ah alright
11:07<winnie_>so i should just give it some time and not fuck with it right now
11:07<jhutchins_lt>winnie_: Laptop batteries tend to have a slow decay then an abrupt drop-off.
11:07<winnie_>alrighty then
11:07<winnie_>thnx for all the help

12:52<rpetre>tharkun: -sloppy are for people who don't plan to upgrade to squeeze
12:52<rpetre>so packages there might be newer than squeeze stuff
12:53<rpetre>i think it's possible to upgrade from lenny + l-b-s to squeeze + s-b, but it's somewhere in the backports documentation
12:53<daemonkeeper>Sounds like a bad idea to me, this may break the system as soon as oldstable is dropped.
12:53<tharkun>Precisely i was thinking that
12:54<dpkg>stable-backports has packages from packages the current 'testing' release; you can upgrade from stable+backports to testing (or oldstable+backports to stable). Packages that were backported from 'testing' to 'oldstable' are in oldstable-backports-sloppy; if you use these packages, then you can upgrade from oldstable+backports+backports-sloppy to stable+backports. Sloppy means "relaxed rules" not "crap packages".
12:55<tharkun>rpetre: thanks for the information.

12:55<brlancer>using apt pinning, I would think you *can* go from lenny+l-b-s to squeeze
12:56<rpetre>no problem. but i'd consider upgrading to squeeze rather than using -sloppy
12:56<valdyn>brlancer: using pinning thats not really going to squeeze
12:56<brlancer>and it will install older revs from squeeze
12:56-!-flower [] has joined #debian
12:56<valdyn>brlancer: and even though it might work, thats one unsupportable package combination

12:56<brlancer>oh, I'm not suggesting it :)
12:56<rpetre>brlancer: adding squeeze-backports would be a lot less painful

13:15<RD>the configuration was made in windows, and seen on bios level, so has been picked up in linux, do you mean the configuration of future arrays once installed?
13:15<rpetre>tchnkion-wrek-gar: it depends on how the archive was split, gzip doesn't do that itself afaik
13:15<daemonkeeper>Or just detect a faulty RAID / disk
13:16<rpetre>try cat *tar.gz.??? | gunzip | tar -xf - -C target_dir/
13:16<RD>luckilly i don;t think i will have to do any more configurations, and have a dozen or so spare drives, so i can replace if they go bad, and now i see your faulty raid detection, will have to think on that. should have probably made them all singles.
13:17<jhutchins_lt>tchnkion-wrek-gar: Have you tried gunzipping the first file of the set?
13:17<tchnkion-wrek-gar>it's a single tar file split into multiple .gz parts - just need to know how to get it back to the single .tar file
13:17<amitz>for tunneling only purposes with key based authentication, what's the best adduser parameter? I'm thinking of adduser --disabled-password --no-create-home, but I need the home to store .ssh/authorized_key. Is there a way to get around the need to make user-home?

13:24<daemonkeeper>RD: Well, you could always use software RAID. You get monitoring and fault detection for free.
13:25<tchnkion-wrek-gar>rpetre, was wondering why use cat?
13:25<rpetre>tchnkion-wrek-gar: to concatenate the files in the alphabetical order
13:25<rpetre>just dumps all their bits into gunzip
13:26<RD>had thuoght about that, but would have to reconfigure all drives to singles, at that point, would i lose hot swap campatibility using software raid?
13:26<rpetre>(it's one of the few cases where cat usage is justified in a pipeline ;) )
13:26-!-Miguel0n [] has joined #debian
13:26<daemonkeeper>RD: You can do all you can do with your hardware RAID by using a Linux software RAID.
13:27<tchnkion-wrek-gar>rpetre, when using *tar.gz.??? why use the ??? instead of ***
13:27<daemonkeeper>RD: When comparing with high-end enterprise controllers you have some performance penalties to use SW RAID, but I don't think this applies for your controller anyway.
13:27-!-hele_ [] has joined #debian

13:29<daemonkeeper>RD: Depends on your RAID. On the other hand, chances are your controller /is/ supported on Linux, including management and monitoring. Just find out by using your favorite search engine.

13:32-!-miroslav [] has quit []
13:33<tchnkion-wrek-gar>*i = in

"i'd rather sit on the floor shoving table knives into live electrical outlets than run webmin on an exposed server." See about the removal from Debian. Don't use their .debs, they are of extremely poor quality. See <free whcp> for alternatives.
13:33<rpetre>tchnkion-wrek-gar: there was an utility, i forgot what it's called

13:36-!-Slik [~Slik@] has quit [Quit: Lost terminal]
13:36<daemonkeeper>RD: The best choice is "none".
13:36<rpetre>tchnkion-wrek-gar: no, you'd do a regular tar -czf output.tar.gz , then use /usr/bin/split on that file, see man split
13:37<RD>none would require all command prompt, right?
13:38<daemonkeeper>RD: Right. You don't need it, you can do everything by hand. This requires a lot of time and invest to become familiar, but it is worth it, especially since /none/ of this tools is fairly complete or well integrated into the means of the distribution.

13:39<rpetre>RD: my experience with webmin and similar tools is that you'd have to be familiar with what the tools behind them do anyway (specific switches and config options), so in the end it becomes just an impediment of getting things done

17:17<AnoNico>I'm working on a dedicated box (Debian-50-lenny-64-LAMP 2.6.26-2-amd64), and we're using a webserver (lighttpd atm) for synchronising files between clients
17:18-!-hele_ [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
17:18-!-Esteban [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
17:18<AnoNico>we're facing performance issues when more than 5 clients are synchronising. The download rate drops to 10 or 20 kB/s for some
17:19<AnoNico>(of course it's a 100 Mb line)
17:19<AnoNico>I cannot really point a bottleneck atm, maybe the hard drive, but not really sure
17:20<AnoNico>we've tried many tweaks on lighttpd, evgen switched to apache to see if it was software related, but nothing changed
17:20<jhutchins_lt>anoteng: I'm not sure how much load lighthttpd is optimized for, but you might need a real webserver.
17:20<jhutchins_lt>Er, AnoNico
17:20<AnoNico>yup that's why I tried apache
17:20<seeS>i was going to say the same thing
17:21-!-mode/#debian [+l 511] by debhelper
17:21<jhutchins_lt>The iostats program can be useful to figure out where the bottleneck is.
17:21<AnoNico>but to be honest, I'm asking myself now if I should use some RAM caching
17:21-!-Craighton [] has joined #debian
17:21<seeS>debugging performance issues is hard

17:23-!-taranto_ [~taranto@] has joined #debian
17:23<AnoNico>the data is a mod for a game based on a rolling release, so we're updateing the server once a week, and then clients update with a software that uses a hash table to determine what to download
17:24-!-krayn [] has quit [Quit: Leaving.]
17:25<AnoNico>but I was asking myself : some hours after reboot, our RAM is entirely filled (8GB) by the system
17:25-!-hggdh [] has joined #debian
17:25<AnoNico>so there is some built-in caching in the kernel, right?
17:26<rpetre>AnoNico: the "buffers/cache" number is esentially free ram that's used for disk cache
17:26<rpetre>so ignore it
17:26-!-Gh057x [] has joined #debian
17:27-!-Gh057x [] has quit []
17:27<AnoNico>if I understand well (I'm French sorry), the cache isn't used for caching frequently used files?
17:28-!-chitchat [] has joined #debian
17:28<rpetre>AnoNico: yes, just to make that idling ram do something
17:29<rpetre>but it is available for application usage anytime
17:29-!-chitchat [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
17:29<AnoNico>hum so maybe I should use a pro active caching system?
17:29<AnoNico>because I suppose that my bottleneck is the HD
17:29<rpetre>if you can prefetch data, it always helps
17:30<AnoNico>bandwith is OK, config seems OK (no limit, some workers ready)
17:30<rpetre>it also helps if you have enough ram to fit the most used data in it (so the caches are primed all the time)
17:30-!-taranto [~taranto@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
17:30<AnoNico>so we if we're 10 updating, we should be filling the bandwith more than we are now
17:31<seeS>depends on the link
17:32<AnoNico>the link is OK, on a single file, single client, I fill my d/l capacity
17:32<AnoNico>but if we're 10, we're only using 10 or 15 Mbps for example
17:33<AnoNico>what do you recommand for caching most used files?
17:33<seeS>then it sounds like a server load issue
17:33<rpetre>AnoNico: are the most accessed files small enough to fit inside your ram? or can you add a bit more ram to make them fit?
17:33-!-mOnDY [] has joined #debian
17:34<rpetre>in my experience, if you can fit your working data in ram, disk cache becomes your friend, not your enemy :)
17:34<AnoNico>hum well 10GB of data, 8GB of RAM
17:34-!-Gurka [] has joined #debian
17:34<dpkg>The first <point release> for Debian Squeeze (6.0.1) is scheduled for early March 2011.
17:34<rpetre>it might be worth adding another 4G of ram if possible

17:36-!-peterk [] has quit [Quit: Leaving.]
17:36<rpetre>in that case, try to do some tricks like reading often the files you want to serve fast
17:36<AnoNico>is there an "automatic" caching possible? I mean, on 10GB, only 3 or 4 are regularly used
17:36<rpetre>so they are always in cache
17:37<AnoNico>how I should read these files? beacause when the webserver serves them, I suppose they are read, no?
17:37<rpetre>yeah, but if they're read often enough, they'll stay in disk cache always
17:38<rpetre>if it's simpler to add a ssd instead of ram, move those files on it, for shorter seek times

17:39<AnoNico>ah ok that's the answer for : "if I understand well (I'm French sorry), the cache isn't used for caching frequently used files?" ----> Linux automatically fills RAM with frequently used files, so I should work better than it does now... Strange, because the server is not loaded

17:48<AnoNico>is it a server or a desktop?
17:48<AnoNico>anyway, you should backup /home/
17:49<parker_chess_>AnoNico are you asking me?
17:49<AnoNico>no no answering lukasoft :)
17:49<lukasoft>Ok, my second question has to deal with sudo dpkg-reconfigure sysv-rc. I was told during the install to run this, and because I made my own start up scripts this won't properly work. What do I need to add to my startup scripts for this to work?
17:50<lukasoft>AnoNico: sorry i didn't know you were talking to me, yes its a server/desktop and everything was backed up before the start of the upgrade

18:05<AnoNico>interesting. That will help me a lot
18:05<AnoNico>your knowledge is valuable
18:06<AnoNico>I'll try to seek for a way to push some data definitively in RAM
18:06<AnoNico>I mean, I can spend 4 GB of RAM for that
18:06<mobildorn>Have you tried tmpfs?
18:06<AnoNico>that's a good idea
18:06<AnoNico>with a symlink on the webserver, and voila!!!
18:06<AnoNico>always cached
18:07<rpetre>yup, just make sure that writes are made on real disk as well :)
18:08<AnoNico>that's sort of read only data
18:08<mobildorn>May be possible in combination with eufs. Get reads from ram disk first and write to hard disk.
18:09<mobildorn>Haven't used it for a while, but it had some interesting aspects.
18:09<rpetre>mobildorn: whoa, i've been looking for something like this for years!

21:44<Nic>ouch nm, it says intel celeron on case
21:44<mobildorn>I've not yet upgraded to p4 likes.
21:44<DrSampler>most newever cpus from intel can also run amd64 debian

21:45<Nic>which link should i download from
21:46<amphi>mobildorn: there was a sinister group of diehard pentium ii users a while back, that were known as that
21:46<Nic>i was hoping to do the netinstall, to get just the basic system
21:46<mobildorn>In most cases it helps to "rm" the reported files in the "clean:" target of debian/rules (or better the Makefile, but via patch) and do "debuild clean" or "debian/rules clean" or something like that.
21:46<Nic>but when i look at the cd download, it says there are 42 cd's?
21:46<DrSampler>you only need 1st CD, nic

21:47<Nic>thank you, ill be back if things go awry ;p
21:48<DrSampler>pentium III
21:48<amphi>Nic: (the link is the front page) looks good
21:48<mobildorn>For minimal setups if prefer something like: debootstrap --variant=minbase lenny (or squeeze) /mnt/target
21:48<mobildorn>Where "/mnt/target" is an already prepared disk with a mounted filesystem.
21:49<Nic>ill try that amphi
21:49<mobildorn>But my notebook is still running Lenny. Haven't the nerves yet to upgrade.
21:50<th>are there any differences installing debian via debootstrap or debian-installer?
21:50<mobildorn>Especially the locales package. It takes our to finish my few locales with 100MHz.
21:50<DrSampler>i am on stable and not planning change it
21:50<DrSampler>server is working, everything is fine, so no real point
21:50<mobildorn>th: A lot. debootstrap does no preparations and won't give you a kernel or boot loader by default.
21:51<mobildorn>If you want disk partitioning with debootstrap, you'll have to do it by hand before you run it.
21:51<mobildorn>If you want disk encryption, you'll have to do it by hand.
21:52<mobildorn>If you are not into "I just need a chroot to test something", you'll have to install a boot loader and a kernel to get the stuff running.
21:52<mobildorn>On the other hand, the "--variant=minbase" gives you a really small system to start with.
21:53<mobildorn>It won't have "less" until you install it -- to give you a picture.

21:55<ganeshp>hello everyone, I need some help in improving the font rendering on my debian squeeze amd64 desktop. The current setup glares eyes and texts are very narrow and strains eyes.
21:55<mobildorn>And, BTW, have enough problems to type without a too high error rate.
21:55<mobildorn>th: Depends on the "--variant". But without the switch it's likely the same.

21:57<th>thanks for the info, mobildorn. i have a very old laptop with broken cd-rom, no usb booting, basically i think the only way to go is by taking out the harddisk and use debootstrap to put debian inside the harddisk.
21:57<hi0qw>apparently i need the 'fuse' package but it isn't in the standard repository... sounds like i need to figure out which one it is referring to...

21:59<mobildorn>hi0qw: libfuse2?
22:00<mobildorn>th: Yeah, and in most cases, there will be some "mount --bind /dev /mnt/target/dev; mount -t proc proc /mnt/target/proc" inbetween or your mkinitramfs will cry.
22:00<mobildorn>th: And don't forget some swap space.
22:00<mobildorn>And create an fstab.
22:00<mobildorn>Set a hostname.
22:00<mobildorn>Stuff like this.
22:00<mobildorn>Anyway, I'll leave now. Have fun.
22:01<mobildorn>And I'm sure the system will complain if you forgot a step.

22:11<hi0qw>i think it was in the install script file there was an alternate method that would give you another tar.gz containing /usr files to manually place in the filesystem... seems like it works so far by that method
22:12<doubledutch>I heard there's an ongoing issue regarding: "vlc : Depends: vlc-nox (= 1.1.3-1squeeze2) but it is not going to be installed" ...and that it possibly has to do with Repositories, is this true or did I get bunk info?
