00:01<winsen1>kop>please can you telle how can i increase the size of home or..?
00:02<kop_>!tell PadawanLearner about apt-cacher
00:02-!-aranax [~aranax@] has joined #debian
00:02<kop_>winsen1: Increase the size without lvm?
00:04<winsen1>i am using virtualbox, and it said that's full, no space in home
00:04<PadawanLearner>kop_: thanks, i heard of a couple of other ones, have you userd any other? just to get a comparison of some sort...
00:05<kop_>winsen1: Best way is to boot from your install cd (or whatever) and use that to run gparted and resize things. There's specialized Linux distros for just that sort of operation, but I think the install cd will do it. I'm sure that the debian-live project has a live-cd that does this.
00:05<winsen1>kop>you mean i should use lvm
00:06<kop_>PadawanLearner: I used apt-cacher because it was the only one that worked long ago and still use it. YMMV.
00:06<kop_>winsen1: LVM makes resizing stuff a lot easier, and you can do it without downtime. But it is one more thing to learn and you may not want to spend the extra time learning.
00:06-!-chihchun [] has joined #debian
00:07<winsen1>kop>no, i want to learn of course
00:08<kop_>winsen1: See the install guide and the debian reference to start on lvm. Then read the man pages. Wikipedia might also help.
00:11<winsen1>ok thanks

01:12<vlad__>None of my USB ports are showing up. lsusb does nothing and sudo lsusb -t says segmentation fault.
01:12<vlad__>so can anyone help?
01:12-!-massmc [] has quit []
01:13<sney>vlad if you're using mint we can't help you.
01:13<sney>if you installed debian we could though
01:13-!-momina [~momina@] has joined #debian
01:13<vlad__>well in that case i guess its time to switch back to 7 :(.
01:13-!-brohelm [] has joined #debian
01:13<sney>and there's a lot of support in debian for weird hardware and weird hardware issues
01:14<vlad__>Or i could try debian i guess
01:14<sney>couldn't hurt to try, right?
01:14<brohelm>about how long does it take to get really good at using aptitude if you, say, spend an hour every day reading the documentation on it? :O

01:15<sney>myself included, but I get by
01:15<brohelm>and here I thought it'd be a big/medium project
01:16<sney>not really. you want a big project, learn shell scripting
01:17<brohelm>uhm I don't know if that would be useful to me hehe. Isn't it like writing programs and automating things?
01:17<sney>automating things yeah, and it's a standard skill for linux admisn
01:18<nevyn>brohelm: or learn something like puppet

01:21-!-trifolio6 [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
01:23<vlad__>which one should i download
01:23<vlad__>i can grab DVD image
01:23<vlad__>and i want 64 bit
01:24<brohelm>and as a skilled user, one still uses aptitude, yes? or do skilled users eventually switch to something else?
01:24<vlad__>so which one from here should i get?
01:24<vlad__>dvd1 right?
01:24-!-jrib [] has joined #debian
01:24<sney>vlad__: yeah
01:25<sney>brohelm: there are still some oldtimers who use apt-get, but most are using aptitude. that includes developers and everyone
01:25<brohelm>k ty
01:25-!-user [] has joined #debian
01:26-!-user is now known as Guest1372
01:26<vlad__>wait why is ubuntu in v10.10 but debian is v6?
01:26<nevyn>some move on to higher level orchestration tools like puppet cfengine, etc.
01:26<sney>because ubuntu releases new versions a lot faster
01:27<sney>Debian is much older than ubuntu
01:27<nevyn>sney: meh...
01:27<sney>but the current stable has pretty current software choices, and if you need newer versions of stuff then there are options
01:27<nevyn>sney: I have things on my debian system that arn't yet in ubuntu
01:27<nevyn>but then I run unstable..
01:28<vlad__>i thought the relation of debian to ubuntu was like mint to ubuntu?
01:28<sney>nevyn: that's a different situation altogether :P
01:28<sney>vlad__: debian was started back in 1993. all the other apt/deb distributions are based on it
01:29<brohelm>debian is the 2nd oldest distro that is still running
01:29<vlad__>then what is the oldest?
01:29<vlad__>i thought that was relatively new.
01:30<brohelm>lol nope
01:30<nevyn>it barely has package management.
01:30<sney>it's good for tinkering. I learned a lot from slackware.
01:30-!-kurohige [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
01:31<brohelm>i would use slackware because its supposed to be stable, but its considered to be work intensive. that's why i use debian, stable yet less work.
01:31<vlad__>Although in your opinion what is the best linux disto for me? I am going to do some pentesting, programming, web browsing, playing games and so on. Of course i am going to learn pentesting and programming.
01:31-!-killraep [] has joined #debian
01:32<vlad__>And i want something that i can learn to use the terminal on well. I was considering trying arch but i think i am too new to nix for that.
01:32-!-killraep [] has left #debian []
01:32<sney>vlad__: Debian can do all of those things. it's intended as a general purpose system. if you want to learn, and have a system you can rely on, then debian is a good choice
01:32-!-Guest1364 [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
01:32<vlad__>OK in that case i will try it.
01:32<sney>all of the stuff that's available in, for instance, dedicated pentesting distros like bt4 - can also be done on debian
01:32<vlad__>I have it downloading right now.
01:34-!-brohelm [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
01:35<vlad__>i was also looking at paranoidlinux with some interest ever since i read little brother but why do i get the feeling its going to be slow and genrally awfull to use?
01:35-!-merez [] has joined #debian
01:36<sney>I don't even know what paranoidlinux is
01:36<sney>sounds like... yep, heavy selinux stuff
01:36<vlad__>You never read the book?
01:36<sney>if you're under attack from h4x0rz, unplug your network connection
01:37<sney>I'm a debian user so I don't pay much attention to what the other guys are doing
01:37<sney>seems like a neat idea
01:38<sney>again, nothing you couldn't port over to debian if you wanted to implement it. one of the great things about free software and linux distros is you can move almost anything from one to the other
01:39<vlad__>I am not that worried about hackers. Also please dont use l33t speak as in my time at various whitehat sites i have grown to hate it. Also is freeBSD based on debian?
01:39<sney>haha, that was facetious l33t only
01:39<sney>freebsd is not linux
01:39<vlad__>and what about arch?
01:40<sney>arch is its own animal, probably derived from LFS
01:41<sney>it's an interesting project but really an undertaking to get it all the way to a regular working system
01:42-!-user_ [] has joined #debian
01:42<vlad__>right... maybe i will put that off for a year or two.
01:43<vlad__>and what exactly IS freeBSD?
01:43<sney>it's a free fork of a UNIX variant that dates back to the late 70s
01:43<sney>wikipedia knows the history better than I do, start with
01:43-!-windstrider [] has joined #debian

01:51<ganeshp>hello everyone. I have noticed a minor issue with my debian squeeze amd64 home desktop. That is whenever I try to copy paste files from my computer to the usb pendrive or external usb memory card, the copying process will gradually slow down and after few seconds will halt completely. After a minute or so it will come backto life and litterally crawls while copying data. And again halts and this continues for ever. Any idea what could be the issue?
01:51<ganeshp> I tried changing the partition format to ntfs, fat32 etc. None of them changed this behaviour.
01:51-!-Zaba [] has joined #debian
01:52<sney>fs type wouldn't cause slow usb transfers, you're right about that
01:53<sney>gnome is probably over-predicting the speed and then the 'slow down' is when it recalculates
01:54-!-Miguel0n [] has joined #debian
01:54<ganeshp>sney: so is this normal in linux?
01:54<sney>not really.

05:36<Glanzmann>Hello; I upgraded to squeeze and now nvidia xrandr rotate to left doesn't work anymore. I found the this bug report and it seems to be fixed. However I don't know the best method to only install the packages mentioned but leave the rest at squeeze. Could someone walk me through the process?
05:39<Glanzmann>And why don't they show up in ?

05:44<gsimmons>Glanzmann: The packages addressing this bug are available from squeeze-proposed-updates (/msg dpkg proposed-updates), which will be included as part of the 6.0.1 point release expected this weekend.
05:45<Glanzmann>I see.
05:45<Glanzmann>So I rebooted my machine one day too early. :-)

06:00<Glanzmann>After installing debian proposed updates, I accidently halted my machine. When I booted it up my grub doesn't load witht the error message "GRUB _" blinking cursor is the last char. I'm just burning a rescue media and reinstall grub. But I'm running debian on a mac mini via bootcamp (bios emulation) and refit.
06:01<mutante>cahoot: i am not telling you to do it, but technically you can put wheezy in your sources list, and dist-upgrade.. so from that perspective it exists

07:47<fp>stop X
07:47<fp>from running at startup

12:59<nsadmin>SynrG, hi... in case you're here, continuing along the lines of the ahci/snd_hda_intel/"nobody cared"/turn off irq 19 thing... one thing to be said, is that in windows, sound and the sata hd works fine together. Because of this fact, there must exist a way to get them to work in linux... most likely, it would take work on one or both drivers. Another fact, the "nobody cared" message is indexed by search engines; at minimum
12:59<nsadmin> that tells us that the problem is in the literature.

13:04<tom>i'm just compiled a 2.6.38 vanilla kernel with debian SID and I expected that the WLAN driver (b43) which is included in the kernel has high CPU load when i use high bandwidth..
13:04<tom>is it normal?

13:05-!-KOJIbKA [~nikobit@] has joined #debian
13:05<tom>this is not sid specific
13:05<tom>in normal case, when you use your wireless card driver it must produce high CPU load on high bandwidth usage?
13:05<MrFrood>tom you might be better off asking in ##linux on freenode
13:06<tom>MrFrood okay, thank you
13:07<sney>it's sid specific in the sense that it's using a kernel that is currently only available to debian users through the sid repos, so this support channel which only supports stable and testing has had very limited experience with it
13:07-!-kaxev [viller@] has joined #debian
13:07<tom>it is not in SID repo

15:16-!-dominick [~dominick@] has joined #debian
15:16<SynrG>nsadmin: i can't guarantee it. newer kernels often require newer userspace to deal with api changes, new features, etc. however, usually it goes well.
15:16<brohelm>kind of paranoid because a message just said: "Could not grab your mouse. A malicious client may be eavesdropping on your session or you may have just clicked a menu or some application just decided to get focus. Try again." :O Prolly nothing but..
15:17<SynrG>nsadmin: and in any case, we don't need things to work flawlessly ... we just need to see if a newer kernel solves it. if it does, we may find a patch that solves it. if we can do that, we might get it backported to the stable kernel.

17:12<doubledutch>I run Debian Wheezy on x86. Why does it want me to remove openoffice upon "$ sudo apt-get autoremove"?
17:12<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).

17:17<MrFrood>may be what you want
17:18<roger_>MrFrood: I have a previously failed installation, with other packages requiring configuration, which depend on gconf2. If I use that command, aptitude tries to configure these packages first. As they depend on gconf2 and gconf2 is not configured, it tries to configure gconf2. Configuring gconf2 fails, which is the reason I am trying to reinstall it.

17:32<MrFrood>run it as a normal user if you are worried

18:13<babilen>roger_: One way to deal with the situation would be to edit the postinst script and replace the "set -x" with "exit 0" -- That way the aptitude run should/might/will hopefully complete. But you'll end up with a corrupted gconf2 database.
18:13<roger_>First 2 OK; third :"sudo: signal_daemons: command not found"
18:13<roger_>Maybe a subroutine or whatever in the shell?
18:13<roger_>Ah found it
18:14<babilen>roger_: Yes, it is a function in the postinst script
18:14<babilen>roger_: Please run the "gconf-schemas --register-all --no-signal" first -- That is the command that results in the error

18:34-!-dominick [~dominick@] has quit [Read error: Operation timed out]
18:34<roger_>Presumably these are files "owned" by gconf2?
18:35<babilen>roger_: I see two/three ways to go from here: Figure out exactly what went wrong. (i.e. which schema file is corrupted) -- running the gconf-schemas command with strace might give clues. 2. Edit the postinst script to exit with 0 (pretending that everyhting is fine) and configuring the rest of the packages. Then purging gconf2 (and with it all of gnome) and then reinstalling it. or 3. Reinstalling the system.
18:35-!-grummund [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
18:35<babilen>roger_: No, these files belong to all the packages that ship gconf schemas. (ls /usr/share/gconf/schemas/ will tell you what is in there)

18:40<planet8><ml|>, thanks!
18:40<ml|>planet8: np
18:40<dpkg>[apticron] a utility to notify the system administrator about packages pending an upgrade (e.g. security updates for stable) via a daily email. The relevant packages are also downloaded but not installed. Install <apt-listchanges> to state changes made within available packages. As of aptitude 1.1.21, a random execution time will be generated at postinst, to prevent a denial of service against Debian servers. See also <cron-apt>.
18:41<babilen>roger_: They are the schema for the configuration values in the gconf database in which applications save their preferences. Think "metacity saved that it should use the composite desktop" -- The schemas define, well, the schema of these options.
18:41<roger_>babilen, Well it looks like config stuff. I like my idea, it would be roughtly the same as editing the script to pretend everything is fine?
18:41<roger_>(my idea was, temporarily move these schema files)
18:42-!-planet8 [] has quit []
18:42<babilen>roger_: Well, not really. All gnome apps would miss their schemas and they'll probably won't configure. You could try it though ... I'll be back in 5 minutes.

20:32<babilen>llcoll: Why would you want to do that? Just prevent the service from starting (with the appropriate KXXntp links) .. run the command I gave you earlier or just remove the package

21:08<@weasel>babilen: 1) intention: invoke-rc.d and update-rc.d are there for *maintainer* scripts to manipulate startup links and to start and stop services.
21:09<@weasel>that's why for instance invoke-rc.d won't start a service if it's disabled in the current runlevel.
21:10<babilen>weasel: Yes, I understood as much after reading the thread on d-d ...
21:10<@weasel>2) service shouldn't care about that. it's job is to run an init script with a defined working dir (/) (and hopefully at one point with a clean environment)

21:11-!-krayn [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
21:12<babilen>Ok, but given that service does not yet implement all the needed functionality (e.g. enable/disable) we (i.e. mere mortal users) are essentially left with "mv" and "insserv" ...
21:12<weasel>that sucks, but it isn't really relevant to service vs. invoke-rcd.

21:33<babilen>dormedas: The drivers are typically not supported in here as they overwrite files are are not easy to remove. It is a much better idea to install the -dkms packages (/msg dpkg nvidia ; /msg dpkg nvidia dkms) because they will automatically recompile the needed modules when a new kernel is installed.

21:36<Karburator>Yes, that's true
21:37<jhutchins_lt>dormedas: If the upgrade installed a new kernel, then both kernels should be available in the grub menu.
21:37<jhutchins_lt>dormedas: Did it b0rk your wifi too?
21:37<Karburator>Do you have wireless or cable (static, dhcp, pppoe) ?

21:39<Karburator>dormedas, it is - but you will get into the same problem again
21:39<babilen>dormedas: use the -dkms ones by debian. reinstalling would also work.

21:49<jhutchins_lt>dormedas: What do you mean by recovery console?
21:50<Karburator>If you had KDE installed, network manager service should automaticly bring it up
21:50<jhutchins_lt>revolt|AW: man date
21:50<dormedas>grub has two boot options for me, one is "normal" and one with "(recovery)" appended to it
21:50<jhutchins_lt>Karburator: A lot of those don't bring wifi up until you log in to the GUI.
21:50<Karburator>If it's not working, simply running "dhclient ethx" will bring it up
21:50<Karburator>jhutchins_lt he said it's cable
21:50<Karburator>where ethx is your network card, eg eth0 or eth1

21:54<jhutchins_lt>n'mind, I'll let babilen get this.
21:54<babilen>The answer to that question is, however, still interesting :)
21:54<dormedas>babilen: I think it's set up to use network-manager by default and I haven't dealt with /etc/network/interfaces quite yet
21:56<dormedas>jhutchins_lt: Honestly, I think the networking is configured auto-magically when I plug in yonder ethernet cord. I really wish I did know exactly how it is configured.
21:56<babilen>dormedas: It essentially boils down to "auto eth0" and "iface eth0 inet dhcp" in /etc/network/interfaces -- The debian wiki, reference and "man interfaces" have additional information about network configuration. You can then safely remove network-manager (aptitude purge ~i~n^network-manager) -- Note that this does not apply if you switch between networks (wifi) ... I would recommend to get rid of n-m anyway and use wicd in that case.

21:59<jhutchins_lt>I can't believe that Debian would violate that rule, and I don't think they have, so dormedas shouldn't have to recompile his modules, but he needs to look at dmesg and the logs and figure out what's not working.
21:59<babilen>revolt|AW: You could use "date" or "adjtimex" (install it) to adjust the time. It is, however, a good idea to keep the clock in sync with NTP once the drift between the actual time and your system time is minimised.

22:08<Karburator>revolt|AW timezone data are located in /usr/share/zoneinfo ... But doing dpkg-reconfigure tzdata and selecting time zone you want will get you correct /etc/localtime

22:54<cgt>Hi. I am currently trying to install Debian Squeeze on my home server. However, when the installer gets to "detecting network hardware", it just hangs. I can move the mouse, but the installer seems to be stuck. Kind of a newb to Debian, and I have no idea what to do :(.

23:15<thirtytwobitrig>Hi. I have a problem that is beginning to get quite irritating. Every time I install xorg-server video I loose the higher resolutions I had with a vainilla install. Happens with both Ubuntu and Debian. Any ideas, please?
23:16-!-bluenemo_ [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
23:17<thirtytwobitrig>The crux seems to be that the system stops recognizing the Acer x193w monitor (says "unknown") in monitors, when it recognized it before.
23:18<thirtytwobitrig>How do I get X11 to recognize my monitor? (I have no xorg.conf, BTW).
23:18-!-rcc [~rcc@] has joined #debian
23:18<sney>you can generate an xorg.conf and explicitly tell it what monitor you have

23:34<sney>if you look in the middle chunk of that log you'll see it loading the 'intel' driver, with explicit G41 support, dri/drm, etc
23:34<sney>there's no 3rd party intel driver for X and believe me that makes things much easier.
23:34<sney>now it does detect that resolution you mentioned - see line 274
23:36<sney>you might be able to force it to use it by just declaring Modes in xorg.conf

23:38<thirtytwobitrig>saya hsync out of range. how can I set the h refresh (if that's the problem)?
23:38<sney>well, if you know your gpu/monitor can support it, you can try declaring it in xorg.conf. in the default generated xorg.conf, it'd be in the Screen section at the bottom. pick the Display section that represents the colour depth you want to use (32 / 24) and make a line that says Modes "1440x900"
