01:03<nsadmin>so I'm trying to set up my laptop's networking so that it gets a static IP on the wired or wireless interface (wired for now, another problem exists with wireless I want to ignore for now) and dhcp everywhere else
01:04<nsadmin>I have control over the appropriate dhcp server, so could do it that way
01:06-!-alephnull [~alok@] has joined #debian
01:08<DennisTheTiger>Running Squeeze, with a couple updates pending. Currently, I've noticed that I get the message " ACPI: I/O resource vt596_smbus [0x400-0x407] conflicts with ACPI region SMOV [0x400-0x406]" each time I boot. This concerns me - how do I locate these devices or the cause of this error?

01:13<cthuluh>I guess, yeah
01:13<DennisTheTiger>cthuluh: Still, I'm curious how to basically cross-reference devices to those addresses shown.
01:15<cthuluh>well, one region is used by a device, the other one by the acpi. for the one used by the device, you can probably get the same memory range in the lspci output

02:19-!-bolshevik [] has quit [Read error: Operation timed out]
02:21<nsadmin>so when the box is inside my net, the hostname (removed from /etc/hosts) represents its IP as present in my dns, another machine on my net.
02:21<nsadmin>what happens when I'm outside, where my hostname can't be resolved?

02:44<fengchuan>I am in china ,and is far away from this server
02:44<nsadmin>no, not visible from the outside

02:45<s_i_m>fengchuan, you mean you want another IRC server?
02:46-!-nutterpc [~nutterpc@] has joined #debian
02:46<fengchuan>first using it..........having many questions
02:46<nsadmin>fengchuan: there are millions of servers of all kinds
02:47<nsadmin>could you be more specific about what you want
02:47<fengchuan>it's all right now.thanks
02:49<s_i_m>nsadmin, so, basically you want to know what will happen if you do not have a registered dns zone and try to access your host by name from the outside?
02:50-!-and1bm [] has joined #debian
02:51-!-mode/#debian [+l 443] by debhelper
02:51<nsadmin>sort of...
02:51<nsadmin>so say my hostname is amdlaptop
02:52<fengchuan>do you know how to delete a ime on linux?
02:52<nsadmin>and I have a dns server I run locally that is "authoritative" over a domain mydomain.dummy
02:52<s_i_m>nsadmin, normally, it will not be resolved, unless you place the name of your host with its ip into /etc/hosts on the machine you use to access it (or add your own dns server to its /etc/resolv.conf))
02:53<nsadmin>and there are dns records, forward and reverse, that represent amdlaptop.mydomain.dummy and a specific static IP
02:54<nsadmin>and all that seems to work
02:54<s_i_m>nsadmin, what you are trying to do is essentially to define a zone, but that zone must be registered in the top level DNS
02:55-!-jcoppala [] has joined #debian
02:55<nsadmin>so amdlaptop actually shows up in the arp table on other machines (particulary the gateway) as expected
02:55<s_i_m>the resolve process in DNS starts from root servers and goes down
02:55<nsadmin>nono, that's -not- what I'm trying to do
02:56<nsadmin>I already said that
02:56<s_i_m>then what do you really want? =)
02:56<nsadmin>it's not about having a domain, having my laptop showing up as that domain, or having it accessable from anywhere on the net
02:57<nsadmin>so I'm satisfied on how it's working when the laptop is connected inside my own net
02:57-!-Claudinux [~claudio@] has joined #debian
02:58-!-jcoppala [] has quit []
02:58<nsadmin>my question has to do with what happens when my laptop is connected to a different net
02:59<nsadmin>where my domain defined for my own internal net is not accessable,
02:59<s_i_m>ah, i see
02:59-!-Lethalman [] has joined #debian
03:00-!-hemanth [~hemanth@] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
03:00<nsadmin>the question is: since I deleted from /etc/hosts the line that sets my hostname to, the hostname is now without an assigned IP
03:01<nsadmin>(which is expected)
03:01-!-desertm4x [] has joined #debian
03:01-!-desertm4x [] has left #debian []
03:02<ompaul>fengchuan: what do you mean ime ... it is not a term I am used to.
03:02<nsadmin>is this a problem? so if I'm in some cafe somewhere with wifi, what are the consequences of having this hostname without an IP?
03:03<s_i_m>nsadmin, i think, that you actually would like to put a record in /etc/hosts back, but instead configure /etc/nsswitch.conf
03:03<fengchuan>imput method editor
03:03<nsadmin>well maybe, but first I seek to understand
03:04-!-jmho [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
03:04-!-jmho [] has joined #debian
03:05<s_i_m>nsadmin, AFAIK, if you have no record in /etc/hosts nor in DNS your hostname will not be resolved.
03:05<ompaul>fengchuan: your question can be understood two ways, one is to delete an application, the other is in the use of the application.
03:05<nsadmin>ok, so given it's not resolved,
03:06<nsadmin>(and given we are looking at this situation as opposed to changing it)
03:06<nsadmin>is it a problem?
03:07<s_i_m>nsadmin, it may be a problem, if that hostname is mentioned somewhere else, say in some config file of some service on your machine
03:07-!-jos_ali_joe [~jos_ali_j@] has joined #debian
03:08-!-jos_ali_joe [~jos_ali_j@] has left #debian []
03:08<ompaul>!tell fengchuan about backtrack
03:11<nsadmin>ok... s_i_m, is there a way to have the boot process to react one way or another depending on whether the hostname resolves?
03:12-!-os4 [~os4@] has joined #debian
03:13-!-fengchuan [~fengchuan@] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
03:13-!-swo [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
03:13-!-os4 [~os4@] has quit []
03:14<s_i_m>nsadmin, that depends on what you start at boot, and as I said on the config files of the services you start. but AFAICT there is no such a requirement that /etc/hostname must be also in /etc/hosts
03:14<nsadmin>let me rgrep /etc for the hostname to get a vague idea of what services have knowledge of it
03:14<Zaba>hmm. When my system boots up, dhclient gets started on the wired interface, and it halts the whole boot process for quite a while if there's no cable. How do I avoid that without entirely disabling autoconfiguration of the interface?
03:14-!-toto42 [] has joined #debian
03:16<ompaul>nsadmin: that is achievable, however the question I have for you is this. When you are not on your own network do you want the facilities on your network or not?
03:17<cahoot>Zaba: look at ifplugd
03:17-!-swo [] has joined #debian
03:17<nsadmin>ompaul, no
03:17<Zaba>okay, I will. Thanks.
03:17-!-aranax [~aranax@] has quit [Quit: Saliendo]
03:18<ompaul>nsadmin: the problem begins on how you get access to the lan.
03:18-!-nutterpc [~nutterpc@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
03:19<nsadmin>ompaul, so when I'm out and about with my laptop, the laptop should be enough
03:19<ompaul>nsadmin: consider this, your lan knows various things about you, and you about it. When you move you need to use dhcp to get an address, if you set everything up statically on your lan then you are asking to do funky stuff.
03:19<ompaul>if you use dhcp on your lan then when you are elsewhere dhcp will work also
03:20<ompaul>so where is the problem?
03:20<ompaul>unless you have constructed a problem
03:20<nsadmin>it looks like my dhcp server notices that I'm "amdlaptop" and handing me that assigned address
03:20<nsadmin>that part is working
03:21<ompaul>so that is not an issue and therefore moot
03:22-!-massmc [] has joined #debian
03:22<nsadmin>correct... or at least if there are issues, either I'm not aware of them, don't care about them now, or both
03:22<ompaul>so your next question what happens when you go out, you just use your laptop
03:23<nsadmin>right... and things will work assuming something important doesn't try to access my hostname in some way?
03:23-!-Slydder1 [] has joined #debian
03:24<ompaul>please define something important
03:24<ompaul>the name on your laptop as defined in local hosts file has not one jot of influence
03:24<ompaul>on the network it is on
03:25<nsadmin>well I dont know, but I have a grep -r output that shows what config files contain the hostname
03:26-!-jordanm [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
03:28<ompaul>go out, test it make notes and be specific :)
03:29<nsadmin>does the process of connecting via dhcp, or maybe the process of booting, edit the file /etc/hosts?
03:30-!-kaziem [] has joined #debian
03:31<ompaul>and this would hurt how?
03:32<ompaul>because when you go back to your lan it too would be setting the values
03:32<ompaul>if it is not accepting values from the outside it is not accepting them
03:32<ompaul>most people put in a name and that name gets glued and stays there no matter where it is
03:32<nsadmin>there is a certain defensiveness in the assumption I perceive this would hurt something
03:33<nsadmin>in fact, I'm looking to understand, and I'm NOT looking to trigger any defensive feeling on your part by suggesting something would hurt something
03:33<ompaul>the following lines answer the question I see you asking
03:33<ompaul>defensive ...
03:34<nsadmin>fit's ok, it's a natural reaction
03:34<ompaul>do this logically, if your machine accepts external inputs it does so for all lans
03:34<nsadmin>there;s nothing wrong, I'm just calling out what is.
03:34<ompaul>if it does not, it does not
03:34<ompaul>ergo nothing will be hurt as such
03:35<nsadmin>but notice the question I'm actually asking, which is: does this editing happen?
03:35<s_i_m>ompaul, AFAIK, /etc/hostname is changed by admin only.
03:36<ompaul>s_i_m: it can be done by the lan, depends on install and setup
03:36<ompaul>been a long time since I had a box do it, but I used to do it in the 90s on dialup
03:36<s_i_m>ompaul, which tool precisely does that?
03:36<ompaul>I got dhcp from my isp and used the ppp to set the hostname
03:37<ompaul>(and it was FreeBSD and more than 10 years since I had such a setup)
03:37<ompaul>so I had a ompaul@box then it would become ompaul@ppp-whatever-they-gave-me
03:38<nsadmin>so you arranged so your /etc/hostname is set from your ppp connection at the time
03:38<s_i_m>well, that is definitely unrelated to debian :)
03:38<ompaul>so where I was going is this conversation is moot :)

03:44<jlgaddis>what's the proper way of setting an 80x50 font at bootup (unstable)?
03:45<nsadmin>what remains is the question I just asked, does debian networking boot arrangement write files in /etc?
03:45<nsadmin>like hosts
03:45<s_i_m>jlgaddis, through the kernel boot parameters, as usual
03:46<nsadmin>jlgaddis, try passing VGA=ask

03:49<nsadmin>ok, thanks

03:55<borillion>I know this is debian server but small question I see that the Nook has a ARM Cortex-A8 and there is a cyanogen version of android that works for it already, is trying to compile the kernel from the nook a valid method to compile a kernel for another flavor of Cortex-A8 both of which are made by TI?
03:55<nsadmin>now, I see that exim4 sees the mail name as amdlaptop.mydomain.dummy

03:58<nsadmin>so two things I was considering, if it turned out that exim4 did that delay-in-starting-up thing related to not being able to look up its mail name, can I present a different set of configs to exim4 depending on whether amdlaptop resolves or not?
03:59-!-yanli [] has joined #debian
03:59<nsadmin>the other thing, is would it be useful to arrange for exim4 to start if I'm at home, or some dummy MTA if not?

04:06<tuhin>does LXDE/openbox use any power manager (using laptop)? what's the name and how to config?
04:07-!-hardwalker [] has quit [Quit: 暫離]
04:07<webad_13>Hello to everyone. I hope that I'll be able to find help here. I am using debian squeeze 6.0.1 and I have set up static IP in /etc/network/interfaces --- this means that dhcp is not even started. However, my issue is that hostname is not sent from that server (it is not sent to the router or other computers)
04:08-!-ao2 [~u@2001:1418:117::1] has joined #debian
04:08<s_i_m>tuhin, probably you want laptop-mode-tools
04:08<webad_13>so the question is how to make the server send hostname --- is there an option similar to "send hostname " that is present in dhcp.conf
04:09<s_i_m>webad_13, do you want windooz machines to be able to communicate with your host?
04:11<webad_13>s_i_m: there is not problem in communication to say that they can't communicate. For instance when I use VNC to use the any computer within the network remotely (but trough this server), hostname is not shown on those computers but the IP
04:12<webad_13>also, since I use DD-WRT on my router - if I do arp, which gives u list of hostnames with their IPs
04:12<nsadmin>well you have one part exactly right: if you set up a static IP, it just runs ifconfig/route to establish all that, and nothing else. so, you would have to do something external to that in order to have the hostname for the static IP set up
04:12<webad_13>for Debian server, hostname is not shown
04:12<s_i_m>webad_13, that is normal. Unless you use WINS or avahi.
04:12<nsadmin>your debian server has an external static IP?
04:13<webad_13>No, internal
04:13<webad_13>but router has dynamic dns enabled
04:13<nsadmin>so this is a server for your internal use only?
04:13<tuhin>s_i_m: Synaptic says it will remove pm-utils and acpi support if i install laptop-mode-tools
04:14-!-zeromon [~zeromon@pc-69-212.ram.RWTH-Aachen.DE] has joined #debian
04:14<webad_13>yes it is
04:14<webad_13>I know I could edit /etc/hosts on every computer
04:14<webad_13>in my network
04:14<nsadmin>ok. well you could also run a dns server inside
04:14<s_i_m>tuhin, well, I do not have installed either of those, but its up to you to decide.
04:14<webad_13>but I thought that there might be an option to add to /etc/network/interfaces that says to send hostname
04:15<tuhin>so which is the best tool ?
04:15<nsadmin>then you would alter the names/IPs in one place
04:15-!-xbytemx [] has quit [Read error: Operation timed out]
04:15<s_i_m>webad_13, as I said you may want avahi-daemon or WINS
04:16<tuhin>!dpkg ubuntu
04:16<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>.
04:17<webad_13>s_i_m, do u know what is memory usage on those services, and which one do u prefer
04:17-!-hardwalker [] has joined #debian
04:17<s_i_m>webad_13, first check that avahi has not been already installed
04:17<webad_13>nsadmin, setting up dns server would be a bit too much since all the comps would depend on this server for the resolution right?
04:19<webad_13>s_i_m, waking it up - give it a minute :)
04:20<nsadmin>do all the machines inside get theirIP via dhcp?
04:21-!-arganeau [] has joined #debian
04:21<webad_13>nsadmin, apart from the servers - there are two servers with static
04:21<webad_13>s_i_m, you were right - these services are not installed
04:22<s_i_m>weasel, then try installing avahi-daemon
04:22-!-flaccid [] has left #debian []
04:23<webad_13>so avahi-deamon is better iyo? - do u know the memory usage of it
04:23-!-austinium [~vikramsha@] has joined #debian
04:23<austinium>hi, whats the path for rc.local on Squeeze? /etc/init.d/rc.local??? is it the same for Lenny too?
04:23<webad_13>btw, would I need any kind of configuration after the install?
04:24<s_i_m>webad_13, normally it should work out of the box
04:24<s_i_m>austinium, /etc/rc.local
04:25<nsadmin>webad_13, you can configure your dhcp to pass the dns server address(es)
04:25<austinium>if for some reason the file is not present, can we create it ourselves?
04:25<s_i_m>austinium, sure
04:25-!-whirli [] has joined #debian
04:26<austinium>this is related to a thread on LQ here
04:26<s_i_m>austinium, but add a #!/bin/sh in the first line and do a chmod 755 /etc/rc.local after you create it
04:26<webad_13>nsadmin, dhcp server on router u mean?
04:26<nsadmin>the dhcp server that supplies addresses to the internal machines
04:27<webad_13>yes, that would be router
04:27-!-diroots [] has joined #debian
04:27<nsadmin>a linksys or something?
04:27<s_i_m>nsadmin, webad_13, dhcp helps _a_ host to set up _its_ ip and hostname if configured, but it wont help other hosts to know that
04:28<webad_13>yes with DD-WRT standard on it
04:29<austinium>what is the difference between /etc/rc.local & /etc/init.d/rc.local?
04:30<austinium>i have them both on my squeeze box
04:30<nsadmin>s_i_m, and, there's a difference between having to set up /etc/hosts for each machine versus having one's own internal name server or yp
04:30<s_i_m>austinium, /etc/rc.local is not mean to be changed by an admin
04:30-!-idank [] has joined #debian

04:31<s_i_m>while /etc/rc.local is for the admin.
04:31<austinium>ok, so /etc/init.d/rc.local is not meant to be changed by the user/admin, it is for the system(Debian) to use???
04:31<nsadmin>all files in /etc are meant to be changed by the admin... people who think otherwise are crossing a line they shouldn't cross
04:32<nsadmin>the line that's crossed looks like this:

04:32<nsadmin>IT'S MY MACHINE.
04:32<tuhin>to day i m first time in this irc
04:32<s_i_m>austinium, yes. /etc/init.d/rc.local is the system one that reads in /etc/rc.local changed by the admin.
04:33<austinium>thanks :)
04:33-!-Robin [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
04:33<austinium>good day people
04:34<s_i_m>nsadmin, that is true, but if you change conffiles of some packages, than on upgrades you will have to merge the changes yourself again.
04:34-!-austinium [~vikramsha@] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
04:34<s_i_m>the point is to separate configuration and the pure mechanics
04:34<nsadmin>we can argue that such packages are broken
04:35<s_i_m>nsadmin, no, they are not.
04:35-!-vizor_ [~vizor@] has joined #debian
04:35<webad_13>s_i_m, avahi-daemon installed and running, but router still does not get hostname
04:35<s_i_m>check routers config then
04:36<webad_13>it is all ok, because other computers get the hostname without problem
04:36<webad_13>would adding a line to /etc/hosts with its specific IP and hostname affect avahi
04:36-!-nutterpc_ [~nutterpc@] has joined #debian
04:36<webad_13>does it look in there
04:37-!-Robin [] has joined #debian
04:37<webad_13>on the server I mean
04:38<nsadmin>s_i_m: this whole thing represents motion toward debian maintainer control over config and away from debian packages honoring what the machine owner wants. the further the movement in this direction, the greater trust and effort machine owners would have to exhibit toward debian maints
04:38<s_i_m>webad_13, other computers get the host name of the host with avahid-runnig?
04:38<nsadmin>and we both know there are serious assholes doing maint
04:38<tuhin>which is the BEST laptop power management tool?
04:39<nsadmin>the one you pick from many
04:39<webad_13>ah, I need a minute to check that - if it is feasable at the moment

04:41-!-nutterpc [~nutterpc@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
04:41<s_i_m>so, then you must have a wish to separate configuration from the script mechanics. If you do not, then you either have to much free time, or just like when things are broken.
04:42<nsadmin>and if you don't know what I'm talking about, you don't receive debian-private@d.o :)
04:42<s_i_m>well, you may very well be a DD, but still be generally wrong.
04:43<nsadmin>I'm not saying -most- are assholes...
04:44<nsadmin>but I am saying that the ones who save themselves work by reducing the control that a machine owner has are.
04:45<webad_13>s_i_m, I managed to connect to one of the computers and it does get resolved actually
04:45<s_i_m>webad_13, try restarting the router
04:45<webad_13>it says the proper hostname but there is also .local
04:45<webad_13>I think this is why DD-wrt is not resolving it

06:33<SynrG>or you could just use debian, and go on and tell us your real problem :)

06:34<Largetoke>yea I I've came to the same conclusion
06:34<Largetoke>graphicaly snaptic ok
06:34<bluenemo>SynrG, sorry :)

06:34<Largetoke>well I'll give it a try and keep reading
06:34<SynrG>Largetoke: what, specifically, is your problem?
06:35<bluenemo>ok well then in cli, first of all always apt-get update, then apt-cache search 'searchphrase', choose a package, apt-cache show packagename, if you like it apt-get install packagename
06:35<Largetoke>can't get like anything to install

06:36<Largetoke>I download like firefox and it won't just normally with a wizard type thing install
06:36<SynrG>you know iceweasel is firefox
06:36<Largetoke>i have that and use it
06:36<Largetoke>main problem is getting flash to work in browsers
06:36<Largetoke>i've used chromium and iceweasel
06:37<SynrG>flash works fine with iceweasel
06:37<SynrG>!adobe flash
06:37<dpkg>Adobe Flash Player is <non-free>. The easiest way to install it is with the flashplayer-mozilla package from; there is also a flashplugin-nonfree <contrib> package available for squeeze and lenny-backports. Ask me about <dmm> <bdo> <non-free>. WARNING: installing flashplugin-nonfree will NOT automatically keep the plugin updated. See also <flash amd64>.
06:37<Largetoke>maybe i just need to check the settings again
06:37<SynrG>wtf? why are we recommending dmo here?

06:38<SynrG>i would say, make sure your /etc/apt/sources.list contains 'contrib' and then install the flashplugin-nonfree package.
06:38<Largetoke>ok let me check it out thanks
06:38<SynrG>i recommend *against* that
06:38-!-Nakul [~nakule@] has joined #debian
06:39<SynrG>instead, just append "contrib" to your /etc/apt/sources.list
06:39<Largetoke>i see your next to last post now ok
06:39<SynrG>e.g. if you have a line that says "deb squeeze main"
06:39<SynrG>change it to "deb squeeze main contrib"
06:39<SynrG>after that, apt-get update ; apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree
06:40<Largetoke>alright got you

07:10<dpkg>From squeeze onwards, Debian is using a dependency-based boot sequence (see /usr/share/doc/sysv-rc/README.Debian). This requires that all init scripts have appropriate headers in them so that the correct order of execution can be determined. Scripts like S25libdevmapper1.02 are left over from Sarge and can be deleted; your own scripts will need LSB headers added:

08:18<metalfingers>Hey folks! I am going to perform a distrobution upgrade from Squeeze to Sid, & wanted to post a checklist here to see if i'm missing anything. I *really* appreciate any info/suggestions anyone might have to chime in...
08:18<dpkg>sid is the <unstable> version of Debian. Sid is the destructive kid in Toy Story. It is NOT an acronym, but is sometimes backronymed Still In Development anyway. Do not use sid unless you have the skill to find your way out of the mess that broken packages may put you in; sid is not supported in #debian because sid users should be able to solve their own problems. Sid will never be released. See also <sid faq> <unstable>.

13:42<dinozzo>i have installed debian from my the pc won`t start untill i connect the mobile to the pc..and at start i press F8 and choose my phone to boot
13:42<sney>dinozzo: did you install from a usb drive?
13:42<dinozzo>yes sney from my phone
13:42<sney>it installed grub on the phone. what is the device name of your hard drive? like /dev/sda etc

13:44-!-o_O [~bynets@] has joined #debian
13:45<dinozzo>first line is: /dev/sdal on / type ext3 (rw,errors=remount-ro)
13:46<o_O>I've installed pppoeconf, but when i'm trying to run pppoeconf, it's error unknown command
13:46<sney>so make sure your phone is unplugged, and in the terminal (as root) type: 'grub-install /dev/sda'
13:46<dinozzo>be right back
13:47<sney>o_O: the pppoeconf binary is in /usr/sbin, so by default only root can run it.

18:08<ComradeHaz`>tempted to blame HDD contents
18:08<rockclimb>Hi all. Have any of you managed to submit a bug in the last few hours and get a response from the bug tracking system with a bug number? I put in an ITP and closed another bug nearly four hours ago, but no bug number.
18:08<ComradeHaz`>iirc could be two different RAIDs
18:08<ComradeHaz`>but it won't work with one disk, both disks or no disk
18:09<ComradeHaz`>not that booting with no disks helps much as they are ide and thus not hot-plugable

18:28<kop>j_v: Yes. Leave /boot out of lvm (and out of anything but raid1). Also if you can start with a spare drive you can avoid splitting a drive into multiple physical partitions/lvm physical volumes just because you need to leave things as-is so you can copy the filesystems off. Best to do that in single user mode, mounted read-only.

19:24<spekulatius>nsadmin: i only know a solution vaguely that does what you need indirectly by probing signatures
19:24<spekulatius>its solved via plugins in Snort
19:25<spekulatius>- for Snort
19:25<nsadmin>signatures? so it doesn't look at the font itself?
19:25-!-crib [] has joined #debian
19:27<spekulatius>it basically wont care what type it is, either application, font, multimedia, ... and just look for certain patterns in the entire data stream that reaches your machine
19:27<spekulatius>so its very CPU intensive to run such a "Intrusion Detection System" on such a level
19:27<nsadmin>oh, thanks, but I'm looking for something that can examine a font itself and make sure the font (as a font) is not corrupt

20:27<kop>Guest1331: That's in the package name. There's likely a "lib" in the name too.

20:30<kop>Guest1331: Dunno. I found a few dvds (from sony?) that have badspots in them for copy protection. You can rip them with ddrescue but I didn't figure out how to play them.
20:30<kop>Guest1138: Try cleaning it. See also the dmesg output.
20:30<kop>vlam: It means you got all that stuff because apt was installing recommended packages as well.

20:31<vlam>i install what i want though
20:31<kop>vlam: And you can prevent recommened packages from being pulled in by installing with aptitude -R, so as to get exactly what you want. (Although, as the factoid says, this is usually not what you really want.)
20:32<vlam>i just want the desktop environment not 20 extra programs with the environment

20:44<kop>vlam: Sounds like it's not configured, but I don't know what that means for samba. You probably need a fstab entry. First read the mount.cifs man page and try to use it to manually mount so you know what arguments are expected.

22:08<sney>most of the time a linux router is an improvement- a $10 pawn shop PC might have a 600MHz P3, 256MB PC133, and a 10GB hard drive. add a PCI NIC so there's two and you're already far ahead of any off-the-shelf router, hardware wise
22:08<sney>Riiick: if you have a question please ask it in the channel
22:09<vlam>yes but configuring it is what im wondering how to do, theres probably a distribution dedicated to that
22:09-!-foolano [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
22:09<Eaxo>there are
22:09<Eaxo>but would be awesome to turn any dist to a router :D
22:09<sney>there are special firewall distributions like ipcop, or you can just install debian and use something like shorewall
22:09-!-aroundthfur [] has joined #debian
22:10<sney>I used a debian machine running shorewall as my router for about a year and a half until I switched ISPs
22:10-!-Riiick [~ligia@] has quit [Quit: Ex-Chat]
22:10<vlam>but would you have a low amount of ethernet ports for the router
22:11<vlam>or would you buy a pci card that has a lot
22:11<Eaxo>thats the only downside or you can buy a switch xD
22:12<sney>I just kept my old d-link router, turned off NAT, and used it as a switch/wifi access point
22:13<sney>the network was WAY more stable
22:13-!-GeorgeSebastian [~georgeSeb@] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
22:13<vlam>what do you mean by stable
22:13<sney>and low-throughput stuff like IRC wouldn't get choked by someone torrenting
22:13<vlam>i only have 2 pcs on my network so i think my router is perfect
22:13<sney>it just worked, perfectly, all the time. my d-link I had to reboot once a month or so just to keep everything running smoothly
22:14<sney>yeah for small networks it's not a huge difference
22:14<vlam>my asus dd wrt router has been up for like 29 days
22:14<vlam>is dd wrt based on linux?
22:15<sney>no it's something else
22:15<sney>oh wait it is linux-based
22:15<sney>I was thinking of Tomato. and here we are in offtopic land again
22:16<Eaxo>haha isnt it wonderful here? :P
22:17-!-gezgin [~gezgin@] has joined #debian
22:17<vlam>so why are distributions based on debian unstable?
22:18-!-chealer [] has joined #debian
22:18<spekulatius>cause they are impatient for the stable release of debian maybe
22:18<vlam>or they like breaking people's machines?
22:18<MrFrood>vlam: because some people just want the latest toys and don't care about stability
22:19<spekulatius>or that
22:19<spekulatius>but diversity is good
22:19<spekulatius>so any fork can also be a chance for somebody
22:19<MrFrood>vlam: mostly recent ex windows users who have yet to learn the way of *nix
22:19<Eaxo>spekulatius, my compiling is finaly done !!! :D
22:20<spekulatius>Eaxo: and works?!
22:20<Eaxo>yeah YAY!
22:20<Eaxo>yeah ;D
22:20<Eaxo>for now
22:20<Eaxo>just gotta install the bastard :P
22:20<Eaxo>just hoping the thing will boot when its done .P
22:21<vlam>how fast would debian boot if it was on a ssd ?
22:21-!-aranax [~aranax@] has quit [Quit: Saliendo]
22:21<Eaxo>alot faster than a ide :P
22:21<vlam>i would hope so :P
22:22<MrFrood>Eaxo: ide - you mean you don't use a floppy boot?
