00:07<Newbumz>I am not really looking to bitch about neuveau I am just trying to figure out if I want to turf it for the old depricated nvidia driver. I love the squeeze install and neuveau works awesome for just watching movies... But I have yet to get it to run a game since squeeze went alpha.

00:13<nebja2>so, i think i screwed up my /etc/network/interfaces file... when i boot and get dhcp info my /etc/resolv.conf says "#Generated by NetworkManager" and that's it, i can manually fix resolv.conf but it's reset each time i reboot
00:13<nebja2>am i right or did i just screw something else up that i don't know?
00:15-!-wolf [~wolf@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:19-!-wolf [~wolf@] has joined #debian
00:20<wolf>hi,can someone give a suggestion on irc client for me ?
00:20<wolf>the xchat-irc (debian wheezy) sucks
00:20<nebja2>what are you looking for?
00:20<nebja2>xchat works
00:20<wolf>the irc client ,
00:21<nebja2>what are you looking for in an irc client??
00:21<wolf>but xchat-irc here cannot display all the text
00:21<nebja2>what do you mean?
00:21<wolf>can you look at the screenshot here ?
00:21<wolf>wait a moment
00:22-!-infernix [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:23-!-stultus [~stultus@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:23<wolf>the last line " without a ker" , it should be " without a kernel", but the xchat cannot show the word "kernel" wholly
00:24<nebja2>i can see your " without a kernel" fine and am using xchat.... don't know why you had the problem
00:24<wolf>can you see the screenshot ?
00:26<wolf>it occurred often , so I cannot understand others' meaning ('cause it lost some words)
00:26<nebja2>can you repeat the error?
00:26<kva>error is clear, but it's really strange
00:26<wolf>ok , nebjia2
00:27<kva>,version xchat
00:27<nebja2>kva, what does the error appear to be?
00:27<wolf>when I use xchat-irc, it cannot show the complete words (in the right place , like the screenshot i give)
00:27<kva>well, cuts words in a middle of a phrase
00:27-!-infernix [] has joined #debian
00:27-!-Holborn [] has quit [Quit: Lost terminal]
00:28<nebja2>kva, ok, thought you knew the cause
00:28<wolf>kva: xchat 2.8.8
00:28<wolf>nebjia2: kva's right
00:28-!-incocnitoo [~julitsan@] has joined #debian
00:28<kva>looks like at 80 letters
00:28<Arrowmaster>xchat works fine here
00:29<wolf>so I have to look for a new irc client ,
00:29-!-magnifico [~julitsan@] has joined #debian
00:29<wolf>Arrowmaster: mine sucks
00:29<kva>well, pidgin, chatzilla are your friends
00:30-!-z3st4f1n [~strumberr@] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
00:30<wolf>ok , I'll have a try, thanks all . but I really wonder why xchat sucks .
00:30<kva>but xchat needs to be dealed with, file a bug
00:30<wolf>it happend in my Squeeze ,wheezy box
00:31<wolf>kva: yes, but you guys' seem ok ,
00:31<kva>it should be fine, so well, try another irc client while they find where the reason is
00:31<kva>I am using chatzilla right now
00:31<nebja2>what's the most secure irc client?

00:32<nebja2>, i think i screwed up my /etc/network/interfaces file... when i boot and get dhcp info my /etc/resolv.conf says "#Generated by NetworkManager" and that's it, i can manually fix resolv.conf but it's reset each time i reboot
00:32<nebja2>am i right or did i just screw something else up that i don't know?
00:33-!-hdb2 [] has joined #debian
00:33<kva>sure you can fix it manually, paste it to pastebin or in my private
00:34-!-magnifico [~julitsan@] has quit []
00:34<nebja2>paste the /etc/network/interfaces?
00:34-!-AgentC [] has joined #debian
00:35<hdb2>hi - is it possible to scan for available wireless networks using just cli tools with an intel card? iwlist tells me it has no information about networks... :/
00:36<wolf>it seems the fonts that matter .
00:36<kva>hdb iwlist scan
00:36-!-Newbumz [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:37<nebja2>good to know worlf
00:37-!-kingsley [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:37<nebja2>xchat survives another day
00:38<wolf>nebja2: i change the font , it's ok now
00:38<kva>nebja2: you configured eth0 on allow-hotplug and eth1 on static. it's intended?
00:39<nebja2>yeah, it was intended, perhaps if eth1 isn't plugged in it'll throw the network manager off?
00:39<kva>if you're using only eth1 then you don't need eth0 at all
00:40<nebja2>i'm often only using eth0
00:40-!-rigved [~rigved@] has joined #debian
00:41<kva>well, you get connection from eth0 if you can configure it on static too then
00:41<kva>you get resolv.conf from eth0 and connection from eth1
00:42<nebja2>if i boot with eth0 plugged but eth1 not what should happen?
00:42<kva>automatic dns from where you're plugged in
00:43<nebja2>ok, that's not happening
00:43<kva>what dhclient says?
00:43<nebja2>the router's dns is set so that's not the problem... dhclient says nothing... checking
00:44<nebja2>yup, nothing
00:44<kva>sudo dhclient -V
00:44-!-stultus [~stultus@] has joined #debian
00:44<kva>-v, sorry
00:45<kva>well, your eth1 dns is set to you have dns server installed and configured?
00:46-!-kingsley [] has joined #debian
00:46<kva>what's your upstream dns is tuned on?
00:50<nebja2>my upstream dns is configured properly and works
00:50<kva>check lines 27 and 29 of that file
00:52<kva>you're getting dhcpoffer from eth0
00:52<kva>you're lucky because eth1 alone should't be working
00:54-!-thewanderer1 is now known as thewanderer1|afk
00:54<kva>27 and 29 where added by you?
00:54<d-b>sysv-rc-conf network-managerl off
00:54<kva>you can use eth1 right now?
00:54-!-wolfpython [~wolf@] has joined #debian
00:54-!-hdb2 [] has quit [Quit: leaving]
00:55<nebja2>well, i edited them in the post to emphasize the line numbers... on pastebin it does it for you
00:55<nebja2>no, eth1 is not plugged in, hasn't been this boot
00:55<kva>ty, so errors were added by you
00:55<nebja2>not manually or deliberately
00:56<kva>strange, so why dhclient misses semicolons?
00:57<nebja2>i'll say, try to remove lines 26, 27 and see if that helps
00:58<kva>well, that's won't help, this is temporary file
00:58<kva>try to comment eth1 and restart network
00:58<nebja2>dhclient -v says "line 27: semicolon expected" and then "line 27: unterminated lease declaration" after removing lines 26, 27 from pastebin version
00:59<kva>sorry, that's strange for me, seems that I can't help
00:59<nebja2>comment in /etc/network/interfaces, right?
01:00-!-mikelj [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
01:00<nebja2>i'll try it, tinker on my own for a bit, thanks for the direction kva
01:00<kva>yes, if it's not plugged in that's not needed
01:00<nebja2>ok bye
01:00-!-nebja2 [] has quit []
01:02<kva>well, that's not that difficult as a guy who set up bonding of eth0 and eth1 and vpn over it and wondering why he's losing arp packets :-)
01:02<kva>only correct response was "why you did that?"

01:09<wolf>kva:does the Monospace font family has a kind of font called monospace ?
01:11-!-GeorgeSebastian [~georgeSeb@] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
01:11<vyler>I'm having issues with squeeze. This happens with netinst and businesscard. When I am at the Install menu and I select install or graphical install I get some green text at the top of the screen saying "Undefined video something 314, video mode number 314 or 319 not sure and then press space to continue. I never had this problem with the lenny install. And if I can't go about installing this
01:11<vyler>way, does anybody have a url with instructions for upgrading via aptitude?
01:11<kva>wolf: try bitstream fonts if you can. monospace is monospace, you can find it in almost all families of fonts
01:12<kva>vyler. you could go with apt too simple
01:12<sney>vyler: /msg dpkg lenny->squeeze will give you the upgrade instructions in short form. essentially, upgrade kernel and udev, then upgrade everything else
01:13<kva>sney, I am not sure, I have some problems with new kernels too
01:13<sney>? in order to upgrade from lenny to squeeze, you *need* 2.6.32 running
01:14<dominick>kva, one other way of doing it is upgrade the kernel and from backports, then do a normal upgrade. that'll go smoothly.
01:14<kva>2.6.32 is fine, but newer isn't working
01:14<dominick>kernel and backports.
01:14<dominick>kernel and udev... sorry.
01:14<kva>apt-get update && and apt-get dist upgrade?
01:15-!-nebja2 [] has joined #debian
01:15<sney>yeah, the backport kernel works just as well
01:15<sney>running newer kernels than 2.6.32 right now is a hairy situation as they all seem to be unstable one way or the other
01:15<kva>try both, you shall be safe
01:16-!-rigved [~rigved@] has left #debian []
01:16<kva>sure, but upgrading to squeeze should be fine
01:16<nebja2>is there a problem with this dhcp lease?
01:17-!-krckor [~krckor@] has joined #debian
01:17-!-hesham [~hesham@] has joined #debian
01:17<kva>nebja2, looks fine :-) and if you're here it works
01:17<hesham>hello i have tried all wireless driver for my b4312 card and nothing is working
01:18<hesham>the STA driver was working fine on ubuntu
01:18<wolf>kva:i get more confused now , I should review somthing about fonts now , see you for a moment .
01:18<hesham>the b43 was detecting networks but can't connect to anything
01:18<hesham>on debian i can't get any driver to detect wireless networks
01:19<hesham>anyone has any advice?
01:19-!-krckor [~krckor@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
01:19<sney>hesham: you probably need the firmware package
01:19<dominick>hesham: have you tried the firmware-b43-lpphy-installer package in squeeze contrib?
01:20<dpkg>Broadcom BCM4312-based wireless LAN devices are supported by the <b43> driver. The BCM4312 low-power PHY (PCI-ID 14e4:4315) is supported as of Linux 2.6.32, install device firmware-b43-lpphy-installer (contrib) in Squeeze. Lenny users, ask me about <bdo kernel lenny> and <b43-lpphy manual> to install a Linux 2.6.32 kernel and firmware respectively. For BCM4312 LP-PHY support in earlier kernels, ask me about <wl>.
01:20<hesham>not detecting wireless networks too
01:20<nebja2>funny thing: my resolv.conf is still empty but dhclient -v doesn't complain
01:20-!-kva [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
01:20<dominick>hesham: is your wlan interface managed or unmanaged?
01:21<dominick>hesham: can you post the output of "cat /etc/network/interfaces"
01:21<hesham># The loopback network interface
01:21<hesham>auto lo
01:21<hesham>iface lo inet loopback
01:21<hesham># The primary network interface
01:21<hesham>allow-hotplug eth0

01:22<nebja2>apparently i don't need anything in /etc/resolv.conf for dns to work

01:37<oak_>what's a good editor to use for developing source code (has line numbers and syntax highlighting and maybe other useful features?)
01:38<sney>genie is alright
01:39<oak_>also, what browsers are available that are more secure than firefox?
01:39-!-JeremyS [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
01:39<oak_>i figure lynx is probably more secure but i don't know for sure and besides i like the GUI browsers better
01:40<sney>don't know about security, but epiphany is likely the least exploited since its use isn't very widespread
01:40<sney>that or midori
01:41-!-dominick [] has quit [Quit: ajax IRC Client]
01:41<oak_>is midori in the repository?
01:45<oak_>(couldn't find it... trying others)

01:45<judd>Package midori on i386 -- squeeze: 0.2.4-3; wheezy: 0.3.0-1.3; sid: 0.3.2-0.1
01:46<sney>so, you must be using lenny
01:46<oak_>nope, squeezey
01:47<sney>check your spelling then. :P (and your sources.list - if you installed with no network connection, it may be wonky)
01:48-!-fixl [] has joined #debian

01:50<sney>doesn't drupal recommend having zend installed?

01:51-!-lillecarl [] has joined #debian
01:53<fixl>hm ... i added the zend repos to my sources.list. but after installing zend-server-ce, installing drupal6 will remove zend :/

06:15<dpkg>insserv is a dependency-based <init> system that is compatible with <sysvinit> and is the default from squeeze onwards. 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; ask me about <missing lsb tags>.

06:34<hypnotech>Can I downgrade, remove the newer kernel and get Vbox to work?
06:35<hypnotech>The reason it's a problem is that without header fuckery, I can't make Vbox work.

07:39<grummund_>/etc/init.d/bind9 uses rndc to stop or reload, and it is rndc that fails

07:40<ompaul>when bind stops how does the box know who it is?
07:40<grummund_>rndc: connection to remote host closed
07:40<grummund_>This may indicate that
07:40<grummund_>* the remote server is using an older version of the command protocol,
07:40<grummund_>* this host is not authorized to connect,
07:41<grummund_>* the clocks are not synchronized, or
07:41<grummund_>* the key is invalid.
07:41<ompaul>and can you now ssh in?
07:41<grummund_>i do not get this error on any other server when stopping or reloading bind
07:41<grummund_>ssh is not reliant on bind (or rndc)
07:42<ompaul>I asked can you get into the same box now - the fact that I indicated ssh as a connection method might indicate that I am thinking about ssh config saying you know what ... I don't know you any more because bind shut down and I know nothing any more

09:55<DrSampler>if you dont even have xorg.conf file, probably you have very basic debian install, and it is long story
09:55<DrSampler>first thing to do, create xorg.conf
09:56<Ela>okay, I'll try ask another way: Iif I point debian installer to one concrete primary partition andould point it that there I want to have LVM, will rest of the disk untouched ?
09:56<mrdesk>yeah im pretty sure my install is basic, but i did ask it to install a graphical environment.
09:56<mrdesk>and i noticed in modern ubuntu installations there IS no xorg.conf. i was thinking it might have picked up that habbit from debian. does debian typically generate xorg.conf on installation?
09:57<DrSampler>check out it may help
09:57-!-_reid [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
09:57<DrSampler>first thing to do, you must create valid xorg.conf

10:02<ompaul>Ela: why do you assume that it would be touch a partition you are pointing at. It will if you do something wrong, it won't if you don't but you would be better to do this. |primary swap| primary LVM or ext | primary LVM or ext | and don't touch your extended .. why if you do something stupid later trying to find swap will be easy personal disk layout is (not in work that is) |8Gigs dead zone| swap | working partition | now when i do something stupid

11:13<sney>!why aptitude
11:13<dpkg>aptitude has more advanced conflict/dependency resolution and will often find a solution where apt-get gives up. It can be used from the command line like apt-get plus an interactive resolver makes it much easier to recover from broken dependencies. It has advanced search capabilities (see <aptitude search>). For some upgrades (lenny->squeeze) apt-get is better though. Be careful.

15:09<willma>Sure, but I was lead to believe that most debian packages should have configuration of the software? So, but logical extension apt would have some stuff for debconf to mange the file

15:14<willma>Whether that is a good thing or not is open to question I guess
15:14<willma>So where does this Pure Blend thing come in to Debian?
15:15<engywuck>but I'm not aware of some sort of recommended packages-reconfigure except by editor or sed

15:19<willma>What do you mean kva? Have one I just copy into place?
15:19<engywuck>the standard-sources.list after installation is *with* CD-entries.
15:19-!-jeflui [] has joined #debian
15:19<engywuck>so you need to either just replace this manually, doo some sed-job or manually edit this file
15:20<engywuck>(if you don't want to enter the CD everytime you need new packages, that is)
15:20<kva>wait a minute
15:20<engywuck>if I understand willma correctly he/she expected some sort of dpkg-reconfigre sources.list --no-cd-entries or sth like that
15:21-!-Lethalman [] has quit [Quit: Ex-Chat]
15:21<willma>Yes, something like that
15:22<kva>that should do, cd is commented out
15:23<kva>I don't know the way to do it without editing that file
15:23<willma>I did sed -i.old -e 's/^deb cd/#deb cd/' /etc/apt/sources.list for now
15:23<willma>I think I need an automation tool for what I want

15:26<willma>Kind of like the installer.... That's a point. How does the installer do it?
15:26<will>kva: I say that because you talked about Gnome
15:26<kva>sorry, don't know much of arm. mine are for amd64

15:43<engywuck>perhaps that's a starting pint?
15:43<kva>ty, engywuck
15:45<sney`>using is also a good (lazy) way of adjusting apt mirror based on location
15:45<willma>ooh. Thanks engywuck

15:59<jhutchins_lt>There was that little incident where most of the US east coast was routed through China.
16:00<stderr_dk>Wasn't there some talk about an anycast address for mirrors at some point? Or was that just a weird dream of mine?
16:00<sney`>it seems in my case either the cdn admins don't know about the ucalgary mirror, or choose not to include it for some reason
16:01<jhutchins_lt>sney`: It might be interesting to compare a traceroute to ucalgary with the one cdn gives you.

I was updating packages, and I walk away... come back, move the mouse / enter password since the screensaver's up... Synaptic and the 'Applying Changes' window are both totally blank, and unresponsive. Debian is regarding

16:14<gamakichi>wat do.

16:15<gamakichi>never had issues with synaptic before, didn't realize it was a bad idea (tm) until five minutes ago, and facepalmed.
16:16<sney`>well, at least it's a clean install, so if you really broke something you can just start again. can you get out of X?
16:18<gamakichi>Er, I can, but I'm more worried about what'd happen if I nuked synaptic mid-install, since I've heard some horror stories about killing apt. >>;

16:25<gamakichi>learning not to use synaptic to dist-upgrade I mean. :P
16:25<gamakichi>that took too long to type
16:25-!-amakusa [~jay@] has joined #debian
16:25<sney`>you can also open a terminal and try to run some apt tool, if synaptic is still running then it'll tell you you can't run apt while you run apt
16:25<jhutchins_lt>synaptic is a really bad idea and indicates somebody didn't check release notes or install guide or anything before upgrading. Probably didn't make a backup either.
16:26<sney`>jhutchins_lt: he's going squeeze-wheezy on a fresh install
16:26<Tiff>why would you backup a fresh install
16:26-!-massroom [] has joined #debian
16:26<jhutchins_lt>Tiff: To be able to return to a working system when wheezy breaks.
16:26<gamakichi>...I'd've used a testing disc, but they keep bombing on installing base system. :P
16:27<jhutchins_lt>Tiff: If he's using synaptic for that it's something he really shouldn't be doing at all.
16:27<gamakichi>...okay now you're just being an ass. it is literally a fresh system. installed LAST NIGHT.
16:27<sney`>again, the factoid of "if you have to ask how, you shouldn't do it" does not really apply on a clean install for a non-production screwing around system.
16:27<jhutchins_lt>dpkg: squeeze->wheezy?
16:27<dpkg>Want to upgrade from squeeze to wheezy? We've only just had a release and users of testing are in for a bumpy ride... if you have to ask how to do this, you shouldn't do it. (in the 12 hours after squeeze released, 2184 packages where changed in wheezy. That's about 14% of the archive changing.) Good luck... you're going to need it.
16:27<Tiff>jhutchins: we've been saying that from the moment he asked the question.
16:27<Tiff>i think he gets the message
16:28<gamakichi>also there's the factoid of 'the quickest way to learn how to use something is to have to fix it.'
16:28<jhutchins_lt>BUT THE VERSION NUMBERS ARE B*I*G*G*E*R!!!
16:28<sney`>and the mascot this time looks kinda like tux
16:28<Tiff>learning through experience isn't a bad thing, I agree.... as long as it isn't a production server. >_>
16:28<gamakichi>...actually jhutchins, I just want it for the rolling release, and have beta tested in the past. I'm not just looking for 'LOL BIG NUMBERS'
16:28<sney`>hey, at least he's not trying to run sid and insisting it's perfectly fine for his company's web server
16:29<Tiff>but reading the release notes as jhutchins suggested allows you to learn without the time investment of reinstalling things. :)
16:29<gamakichi>true, but I'm just saying - at this point he's forcing the issue, AND being demeaning.
16:29<sney`>we have some grumpy old unix beards in #debian, just take it in stride
16:30<gamakichi>in any case, I'm doing this on a non-production system, know not to log in as root, and am the only 18y/o I know that knows how to use a bash terminal without breaking something.
16:30<gamakichi>so there's three things I'm doing right overall
16:31-!-mode/#debian [+l 519] by debhelper

16:35<gamakichi>yeah, and that's why I ran into the framebuffer issue when configuring x, and had to ssh into the thing from my iphone to read the output.
16:35<sney`>much less of a pain than getting 3d on a nvidia card from a new squeeze install, anyway

16:51<Tiff>I compiled Chromium on Slackware last night on an old box. It took many hours. Kids want everything straight away these days.
16:51<sney`>chat foul, I made that same joke like 5 minutes ago
16:51<gamakichi>...the development branch of Chrome. you know, the rolling-release one? :P
16:51<gamakichi>two versions ahead of stable?
16:52<gamakichi>only supported on debian and ubuntu? unpacking the deb /might/ work, support on other distros /planned/?
16:52<sney`>google-chrome-unstable? the one that sometimes forgets how to have scrollbars? you do play dangerously
16:52-!-stc [~quassel@] has quit []
16:52<gamakichi>and two versions isn't that much with google's versioning system for chrome. so yeah.

17:47<diederik>did you specify a proxy during install?
17:47<DebianN00b>should I try a different package-server? or the 'big' debain installation iso?

19:44<rcc>the mode I'm looking for doesn't show up in the resolutions list in NVIDIA X Server Settings, but I know it's supported because it works just fine on windows
19:44<rcc>and if I try to manually set it in xorg.conf I end up with a random resolution
19:45<rcc>any suggestions? is there a way to force a specific resolution / refresh rate no matter what the driver or whatever makes that decision thinks?

19:55<dpkg>i heard nvidia-installer is a clever cross-platform way of installing nvidia's proprietary drivers, which works fine on systems with stupid package managers (i.e. not so good with Debian). More specifically, prone to dying if any X or kernel-related packages are upgraded or removed. Ask me about <nvidia-graphics-drivers> instead. See also <why nvidia-installer sucks>.

19:57<dpkg>nvidia-installer works fine for you today, granted. Let's say tomorrow Xorg is updated -- the nvidia driver will break. If you try to uninstall nvidia (nvidia-installer --uninstall), then you break Xorg badly. nvidia-installer overwrites files at random, and has NO CONCEPT of package management. We recommend against using it based on extensive experience. USE THE DEBIAN PACKAGES. Ask me about <nvidia>.
19:58<rcc>yeah... well if those packages would work fine people would use them, but they don't, I couldn't start X with the driver in the repository
20:00<Karburator>chatzillaNow try installing hal

20:03<diederik>oh, I don't have experience with multi-monitor setups

22:10<rcc>what I learned: I learned to add a new mode to a display and I also learned that the free drivers don't play nice with xinerama, they only do when you have one video card enabled
22:10<rcc>if you enable the other one, they fail
22:11<rcc>so I'd like to correct that statement that "legacy nvidia drivers suck" cuz they don't, they're actually the only ones that work the way they should

22:25<ganeshp>hello everyone, I wanted to know how to exclude mysqld from startup of my debian amd64 home desktop. I have disabled the mysql startup using sysv-rc-conf. But I can still mysql running during boot.

22:27<retrospectacus>ganeshp: sounds like you are using dependency-based booting, so insserv -r mysql
22:28<ganeshp>retrospectacus: thank you. I will run "insserv -r mysql" as root at console

23:08<TheOne123>i try to convert a phpbb2 forum to phpbb3 on my debian server
23:09-!-w3asel [~w3asel@] has joined #debian
23:09<TheOne123>but the conversion or install routines are not included in the debian phpbb packages

23:09<TheOne123>whats the reason for that?
23:10-!-IratePirate9 [] has joined #debian
23:11<sney>maybe there's a licensing issue
23:11<ZykoticK9>While using the Chromium version from the Debian repo, I'm missing scrollbars on Gmail's site - this appears to be due to a Chrome/Chromium bug from around 2009. Is there a "fix" other then simply updating/downgrading to Google Chrome?
23:12<sney>you could backport the one in sid

23:22<TheOne1234>gsimmons: ok that helps me, but why debian does not offer that install directory in general?

23:23-!-massmc [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
23:23<TheOne1234>also the squeeze package does not include it
23:23<gsimmons>TheOne1234: I don't know what you mean by "install directory". The phpbb2 -> phpbb3 process appears non-trivial.

23:24<TheOne1234>yeah that is maybe tricky, but in general phpbb offers an directory that provide 2 functions, first install and secondly forum conversion
23:25<TheOne1234>and i think forum conversion is quit useful to a lot of people
