00:51<Gerowen>Question, I have a voice recording of somebody at work that I need to put onto our iPod. I need to convert it to either mp3 or m4a, I've got WinFF installed, but it's missing the options for those two formats. Are there additional ffmpeg addons I can install for WinFF to pick up and use those formats?
00:52<vook>what is the format of the voice recording ?
00:52-!-nutterpc [~nutterpc@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:55<vook>just curious - I don't have the answer to your question, but converting wav to mp3 can be accomplished easily with a one line Lame command.
00:55<dpkg>LAME is a MP3 encoder, not distributed by Debian due to patent and infrastructure issues, see and . Binary packages are available from <debian-multimedia>. Applications using <GStreamer> for MP3 output require the LAME plugin (gstreamer0.10-lame package in <dmm>).
00:56<vook>'lame --help' for full options.... 'lame infile.wav outfile.mp3' will work though.

01:04<Gerowen>so what's that debian-multimedia repo dpkg mentioned?
01:07<Gerowen>Is it official? Any conflicts with stuff from the stock repos?
01:07<Arrowmaster>not official
01:07<vook>causes issues sometimes
01:08<demooriaan>you should install only really necessary packages from there
01:08<vook>*many times and not well maintained - though I sometimes use it
01:09-!-bentlux [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
01:09<Gerowen>might just go manually download lame instead of adding it
01:09<vook>I think lame is in non-free - I thought so at least
01:10<vook>nah - I suppose I should see the above !lame
01:10<demooriaan>well, lame for kde/gstreamer (and the corresponding lib for audacity) are necessary
01:12<vook>Gerowen: - debian sources.list generator - use with caution!
01:13<Gerowen>vook: I think I got it, just used lame via CLI, I'd like to keep unofficial sources out of my sources.list and just grab individual packages if necessary, I'll bookmark it for future reference though, thanks!

04:01<Gerowen>Ok, you're going to change your eth0 connection from "DHCP" to "DHCP (Addresses Only)"
04:01<Gerowen>Is that an option?
04:01<vorteks>i think
04:02<vorteks>i wish debian used the old tried and true method of dhcp :)

04:13<costas>quiettone, just make sure your primary hard disk or partition is still bootable... no need to update grub if you just format a partition other than the one that boots your system...
04:14<costas>after the format check your fstab either manually or use diskmanager...
04:15-!-andrie [~andrie@] has quit [Quit: Ex-Chat]
04:15<costas>for more grub options, just read the man file of your grub version...
04:16<quietone>costas, thank you
04:17<costas>you could for example install another OS by disconnecting the hard disks of the other operating systems, and then just edit the grub config file to include it on your boot selecting screen...

04:38-!-florent [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
04:39<demooriaan>maybe you can find similar on original debian site
04:40<yfk>it assumes usage of an .img...using that to make one is identical for pretty much any os
04:40<yfk>I have the iso
04:41<demooriaan>the only trick is making the stick bootable
04:42<yfk>you're saying using zcat boot.img.gz /dev/sdb and cp from a mounted iso's directory would do the trick?

04:51<costas>you just insert your Debian CD or DVD and format a usb stick normally...

04:53<s_i_m>480 MB/sec??
04:53<costas>yep it's a crucial stick...
04:54<costas>I have another one from adata that's 8gb... but slow as a frozen hell
04:54<demooriaan>costas yes, as system to run. but he wanted a medium for istallation

05:36<b_52light>demooriaan, but it doesn';t got generated
05:36<b_52light>irokease, :d
05:37<demooriaan>the initrd will be built when installing the kernel package, not on building the deb
05:38<babilen>b_52light: first, initrd has been replaced by initramfs -- Why do you want to compile that kernel at all? What are you trying to achieve?
05:38<demooriaan>--initrd still works
05:39<b_52light>babilen, i need a new kernel that support more than 4G of ram and include support wireless of my intel 5000 , and has linux-headers installed so i can use Virtualbox :d
05:39<babilen>demooriaan: I did not say that it does not. But I assume (wrongly?) that b_52light uses an initrd due to the tutorial being written for etch, rather than intentionally

05:41<babilen>b_52light: But I doubt it is necessary -- You can just install a -bigmem kernel or a an amd64 one (if your system is 64bit)
05:41<babilen>,pciid 8086:4232
05:41<judd>[8086:4232] is 'WiFi Link 5100' from 'Intel Corporation' with kernel module 'iwlagn' in squeeze. See also
05:42-!-mar [] has left #debian []
05:42<b_52light>babilen, this kernel i'm using now is fine find don't find the adequate linux-headers
05:42<demooriaan>modules-nonfree, maybe?
05:42<b_52light>to it
05:42<babilen>b_52light: The wifi device should be supported by iwlagn out of the box. You need firmware though.
05:42<babilen>!tell b_52light -about iwlagn
05:43<costas>irokease, you might not have a second screen, maybe your driver doesn't support it... read here and let me know if that's your situation...
05:43<babilen>b_52light: So, if you have a 64bit system (grep -w lm /proc/cpuinfo) I would recommend to install an amd64 kernel (or a bigmem one if you desire or don't have a 64bit system) -- install the required firmware and you should be good to go

05:47-!-samuel [~samuel@] has quit []
05:47<babilen>b_52light: But even if you don't upgrade now, you definitely should install a newer kernel from backports.
05:47<judd>Available kernel versions are: sid: 2.6.38-2-686 (2.6.38-3); wheezy: 2.6.38-2-686 (2.6.38-3); squeeze: 2.6.32-5-686 (2.6.32-31); lenny-backports: 2.6.32-bpo.5-686 (2.6.32-30~bpo50+1); lenny: 2.6.26-2-686 (2.6.26-26lenny2)
05:47<b_52light>babilen, yes because i don't find the adequate linux-headers from this one
05:47<babilen>b_52light: 2.6.32-bpo.5-686 would be the one you are after. That one also supports your wireless. That being said: upgrade to squeeze :)
05:47<demooriaan>2.6.32 from backports should be fine
05:48<babilen>b_52light: No wonder, that kernel is long gone.
05:48<b_52light>babilen, aha !
05:48<demooriaan>the vanilla 2.6.32 is also alongterm supported kernel
05:48<irokease>costas-> No, it's not my situation.. Second X server starts, but client, that shoud use it can't open display :0.1
05:49<babilen>b_52light: Just upgrade to squeeze. You have to do it eventually anyway.
05:49<b_52light>babilen, ok

05:59<vorteks>how come compiz excluded?
05:59<demooriaan>some time ago compiz was used by/in kde
05:59<babilen>vorteks: Use whatever you like and feel comfortable with. We can't tell you what is best for you and will not try to. There is not a single metric that defines "best" for window managers.
05:59<vorteks>what has the best windows borders? hehe
05:59<demooriaan>extremely comfortable, but biiig:kde
06:00<demooriaan>gnome: a bit smaller, but very usable
06:00<Arrowmaster>but not configurable at all
06:00<costas>i suggest gnome for amateurs, for speed freaks twm, vtwm or of course... fluxbox
06:00<babilen>vorteks: Eye candy is overrated and diverts my attention. It gets me out of "the zone" :
06:01<SynrG>gnome is *quite* usable by people of all levels of skill
06:01<Arrowmaster>i mean metacity specifically, it has practically no configuration
06:01<SynrG>the issue is: do i want messing with the wm/desktop to be the focus of attention ...
06:01*Arrowmaster wishes he could turn off the damn shadows
06:01<SynrG>or do i just want things to work, and get on with the business of using applications
06:01-!-arand [] has joined #debian
06:02<SynrG>each solution has various levels of hassle/annoyance
06:02<demooriaan>if you like simple click for settings: use kde
06:03<SynrG>btw, gnome is flexible. you don't need to use metacity. when i use it, i invariably replace that with openbox
06:03<babilen>vorteks: But I am quite sure that you and me differ in what we find important. Gnome is a good choice for a *desktop environment* but lxde is too. Linux is (also) about choices and you should try some alternatives to figure out what *you* like. I would test: Gnome (with and without compiz), LXDE, KDE, fluxbox and awesomewm -- That gives you a good overview.
06:03<gsimmons>babilen: Not WRT to s-p-u. A SUA will be sent to debian-stable-announce once things are fixed, you can refer people to the nopointer factoid until then.
06:03<demooriaan>openbox runs almost everywhere
06:04<babilen>gsimmons: Ok, thanks for the update!
06:04<SynrG>i'm split between lxde and gnome for what i use/recommend. depends on context.

08:20<SynrG>w0jtas: or else configure a different virtual interface on the other ip# outside of the chroot and just bind to that.
08:20<set>I upgrade from squeeze to sid on my desktop becouse want some newest programs like kadu ect... but yesterdej developers do somethink with gnome... its my best enviroment... no must work on xfce4 becouse cant install gnome by wrong dependies... as any way to back from sid to sqeeze?
08:21-!-NyberMi1 [~chatzilla@] has joined #debian
08:21-!-mode/#debian [+l 473] by debhelper
08:21<daemonkeeper>set: No way
08:21<dpkg>[downgrade] Downgrading is not possible with apt-get/aptitude and no future support is anticipated. Some programs change the binary format of their files in a way that cannot be rolled back later, and package maintainer scripts provide ways to upgrade to new config file formats but not ways to downgrade. You can always try to downgrade a package using dpkg -i <olderversion.deb>. See also <partial downgrade>, <unstable->testing>, <sdo>.
08:21<SynrG>daemonkeeper: linux-vserver vs. lxc? i thought lxc was supposed to be "chroot on steroids" or something
08:21<daemonkeeper>SynrG: Linux-vserver is actually pretty much the same as a FreeBSD jail
08:21<NyberMi1>Been here earlier but got little response... im having trouble with my desktop machine and debian. Suspend works ok but resuming from suspend just leaves the screens black and i have to hard reset the computer. Any ideas what could be wrong?

08:27<dpkg>First, check for a backport on <debian-backports>. If unavailable: 1) Add ONLY a <deb-src> line for sid to /etc/apt/sources.list 2) enable debian-backports (see <bdo>) 3) aptitude update; aptitude install build-essential; aptitude build-dep packagename; apt-get -b source packagename; 4) install the resultant debs.

08:41<NyberMi1>you have nvidia-xconfig and nvidia-config both mentioned there... is that intentionally different?
08:41<David_Hernandez>was a mistake, I've used nvidia-xconfig

08:52<babilen>David_Hernandez: It might still be a good idea to ask #nvidia how to (cleanly) remove their driver.
08:52<David_Hernandez>Thanks babilen, but I've tried it first and didn't worked either
08:52<David_Hernandez>ok, thanks
08:53<babilen>David_Hernandez: You are not really updating that frequently, aren't you?
08:54<Pikos>i'm having some troubles configuring my debian to share it's wireless internet connexion
08:54<babilen>David_Hernandez: The configuration (the xorg.conf.d stanza) in the "nvidia dkms" factoid assumed that you don't have a xorg.conf
08:54<David_Hernandez>No, I'm not
08:54<David_Hernandez>Usually I don't update
08:55<babilen>David_Hernandez: That is not a good idea if you are running a development release of Debian. :)
08:55<David_Hernandez>And today I've learned that it was a good idea not to update
08:55<Pikos>I configure eth0 for my local network but when I connect with Wicd to wifi my eth0 is ereased and i lost the local connexion
08:55<David_Hernandez>til today was working fine
08:56<babilen>David_Hernandez: Wrong lesson. You should have learned that running wheezy (or testing pre-freeze) will cause breakage and problems.
08:56<babilen>David_Hernandez: You might want to paste your Xorg.0.log and the complete aptitude log of your update session to after you got rid of the nvidia drivers.

09:39<cyrusnk_>babilen, i did ifdown wlan0 ok but when i'm doing ifup wlan0 it starts the DHCP and i get some lines with DHCPDISCOVER on wlan0 to port 67 and interval 6, 13, 13, 17, 12 and after that: No DHCPOFFERS received. No working leases in persistent database - sleeping

09:43<KALRONG>babilen, yesterday i continue putting the software i usually use, and i dunno why the pulse audio was installed and started messing my sound configuration (skype crashing, spotify crashing, no sound, sound cards dissapearing, etc) and only i can think about doing an "aptitude purge libdls1.2debian-all" basically i almost destroyed totally the X and half of the configuration, I reinstalled debian again and right now Im working with the ha

10:03<babilen>cyrusnk_: You don't see the network. Repeat the scanning, is it picked up eventually?
10:04<babilen>KALRONG: haha
10:04<KALRONG>just one think about that, i have a similar problem with my wireless usb but it was a problem with the driver itself
10:04-!-cmomo [~cmomo@] has joined #debian
10:04<cyrusnk_>babilen, the laptop is not the problem, the desktop is the problem, the desktop is where i am now and if i connect the desktop with wire it works great. the laptop works with wire and wireless
10:04<babilen>KALRONG: what was the problem?
10:05<babilen>cyrusnk_: the laptop is also running debian? And yes, I am aware of that :)
10:05<cyrusnk_>babilen,'s win xp
10:05<vorteks>when i try to start compiz in debian i get this error (compiz-decorator:2134): GConf-CRITICAL **: gconf_client_set_string: assertion `val != NULL' failed ....I also read the debian compiz wiki
10:05<babilen>cyrusnk_: ok
10:05<KALRONG>the driver for the chipset that came with the debian kernel wasnt working very well with the usb version but if you used a live like backtrack it worked so i researched a little bit about the chipset and found a couple of solutions
10:06<babilen>KALRONG: yeah, that is a problem I suspect as well.
10:06<babilen>cyrusnk_: I guess you don't find the network?
10:06<cyrusnk_>babilen, a few hours ago when i scaned i get the access i don't know why it didn't pick anything
10:06<vorteks>any ideas?
10:06<KALRONG>babilen, i had LOTS of problems with usb wireless and then i bought a pci-e one and i didnt need to touch it

10:08<babilen>cyrusnk_: the routing for ethernet is fine
10:08-!-Lethalman [] has joined #debian
10:08<nevyn>Osiris_X: seperate /usr is absolutely still a supported configuration
10:09<KALRONG>but the problem is that the wireless doesnt connect or that it doesnt manage to get and ip?
10:09<nevyn>it might not be reccomended or sensible anymore in some peoples opinion but if it's what you've got I wouldn't think that messing with it for the sake of it was a good idea at all
10:09<Osiris_X>nevyn: accepted not supported - it is apparently responsible for numerous bugs filed for silently failing applications - particularly udev related
10:10<babilen>cyrusnk_: Ok, lets try the vendor module. Run "modprobe -r rt2800usb ; modprobe rt2870sta ; dmesg | tail -n23" "ifconfig -a ; iwconfig ; iwconfig wlan0 essid YOURESSID ; iwconfig" and then "dhclient wlan0"
10:12<nevyn>Osiris_X: hrm ok.

10:24<Osiris_X>then copy /usr back

10:24<nevyn>Osiris_X: that's even nicer
10:24<dpkg>In lenny and squeeze, create/edit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.local.conf and add a line similar to this (without quotes): "blacklist module_name". If this doesn't work, do 'echo "install modulename /bin/true" >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.local.conf'. IMPORTANT: ask about <blacklist-initramfs>. To blacklist a module at installation time, ask me about <installer blacklist>.
10:25<gsimmons>cyrusnk_: "echo rt2800usb > /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.local.conf" should be sufficient. Consider removing your device and unloading rt*-related modules before reinserting.
10:25<nevyn>if you move the /usr lv you can just expand the / lv

You can set a DNS server when you edit the connections (right click, edit connections) and change the connection type (forgot the exact name) and set a suitable DNS server. (a free one like or or the one from your ISP comes to mind) -- This should actually be st by DHCP and I am not sure why you don't get that value.
12:11<vorteks>wre do i right click
12:11<babilen>KALRONG: I am stumped -- snd_usb_audio is specified with index=-2 which should prevent them from grabbing index 0 -- You might actually have to go the ~/.asoundrc /etc/asound.conf route ...

12:18<cyrusnk>babilen, retrospectacus, gsimmons i made it guys! thank you all! the wireless is working. The first problem was that i had rt73usb instead of rt2870sta installed and at boot i had rt2800 and rt2870 so i manage to blacklist rt2800 and it worked :))

12:22-!-ckk [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
12:22<babilen>cyrusnk: Please note that the rt2870sta module has been removed from post-squeeze kernels. I would assume that the rt2800usb module should actually work with your device if you blacklist the *sta one. Not quite sure if you need a newer version though. Just something to be aware of.
12:22<KALRONG>cyrusnk, now you know how i feel :) and thats one of the reasons why i love linux even if i dont know how to do middle of the things
12:22<babilen>cyrusnk: And the best thing is that we just pointed you in the right direction and told you what you had to do in general, but you solved it in detail :)
12:23<josephseraos>I've downloaded a Gnome3 LiveCD. Now, is there how to install it on Debian Squeeze?
12:23<vorteks>babilen: root@guardian:/home/vortek# gconftool-2 -R /system/networking/connections
12:23<babilen>vorteks: Don't run it as root but as your user!
12:24<cyrusnk>babilen, i installed rt2870sta and dmesg give me 2 entries rt2800usb and rt2870sta. i blacklisted rt2800usb! and it works, i'm full wireless now
12:24<babilen>cyrusnk: yeah, just wanted to let you know that this module will not be supported in wheezy (nothing to worry about right now, just something to be aware of)
12:25<cyrusnk>KALRONG, linux it's very mind training
12:25<jhutchins_lt>babilen: Is the hardware support being consolidated or dropped?
12:25<cyrusnk>babilen, i'll make it work in seconds :))
12:25<babilen>cyrusnk: I would think that you "just" need to blacklist one or the other for it to work and the rt2800usb one *might* work better/at all in a newer kernel version.
12:25<KALRONG>cyrusnk, or brain killer all depend in how you look at it hehe
12:26<babilen>jhutchins_lt: The manufacturer driver (staging) is dropped in favour of an open source one AFAICT
12:26<demooriaan_>babilen: if he is connected by wire, and the router uses dhcp, he could simply add this line to his /etc/network/interfaces
12:26<demooriaan_>iface eth0 inet dhcp

12:30<babilen>KALRONG: To be honest: I am not sure how/why the SIP USB phone grabs index 0 and in particular unsure why the modprobe fixes it. It seems that the modules are loaded in the wrong order and that the USB devices are allowed to grab index 0. I guess this is a bug.

12:33<babilen>KALRONG: mail client compatible with exchange? Hmm, would be surprised if thunderbird (i.e. icedove) or evolution does not support it, but I have been in the fortunate position all my live that I could get my mail with standard IMAP/SMTP
12:33<KALRONG>jhutchins_lt, i tried using kmail over imap but it didnt connect
12:33<jhutchins_lt>KALRONG: To get one that uses the proprietary microsoft protocol that includes calendars and group folders you have to pay someone who paid Microsoft for the license.
12:34<KALRONG>i will try later one thunderbird i couldnt manage evolution to work
12:34<jhutchins_lt>KALRONG: It's up to the Exchange admin whether imap's enabled.
12:34<demooriaan_>vorteks the other wayis using nm-applet as babilen described to you

12:38<KALRONG>babilen, both of the usb get 0 and 1 and the intel the 2

12:54<MMX2>So I am trying to install debian using a usb stick that has grub2 on it. Using a loopback device within grub2 i cherry pick the kernel and initrd files form the iso file (located on the stick) and boot it. This works fine untill the debian installer is trying to mount the cd rom. at that point i am trying to mount the iso file but that fails. mount gets stuck and creates a buch of loop back devices over 43k.
12:54<vorteks>cant resolve hostname for that
12:55<MMX2>any ideas?

12:55<jhutchins_lt>MMX2: Why not just follow the install guide?
12:56<babilen>MMX2: There are specific images for what you are trying to do.
12:56<demooriaan>is the router correctly configured?
12:56<babilen>MMX2: Any particular reason why you don't just "cat" the iso to the USB stick?

12:57<MMX2>jhutchins_lt, because i want to have a stick that contains multiple iso images and i want to be able to choose with grub which iso to boot. using the guide i'd waste a CD

13:04<vorteks>babilen: wrere do i paste it?
13:04<babilen>MMX2: You also need the iso on the USB stick. I am not a d-i developer and am not entirely sure where the non hd-media installer searches for the installation medium, but you might actually need the installer from hd-media. Try it and report back.
13:04<jhutchins_lt>MMX2: No, you don't need a CD to install. You should actually look at what the guide really says.

13:38<mjr>sortadi, DVI outputs usually have VGA outputs integrated in their own pins (DVI-I). HDMI did away with those, so you can only convert HDMI to digital DVI (DVI-D). The DVI-to-VGA dongles require a DVI-A signal to be present (included in DVI-I) to work

14:56<gpm>good question
14:56<devil>jhutchins_lt: thats the question
14:57<gpm>should i report something?
14:57<devil>gpm: sure you have no sid repo active?
14:57<jhutchins_lt>gpm: It's pretty well known
14:57<gpm>yeah it's all wheezy
14:57<gpm>no i know i mean that it made it into wheezy
14:57<devil>i didnt know it propagated to testing, just the symthoms hinted that way
14:57<jhutchins_lt>devil: No, it's been imported to testing.

18:24<babilen>egypt: Yes, I understand. Make sure you generate arabic locales (dpkg-reconfigure locales). Install "task-arabic" and "task-desktop-arabic" -- I hope that you are then able to select the language during login. Select your username and then the session and language in gdm3

The computer boots up, loads GRUB, starts Debian with a screen that has something about udev then it seems like everything loaded fine and my monitor goes into sleep mode. I am using the DVI port on the back of my machine but I cannot figure out why it goes into sleep mode right at that spot.
19:52<Vlam>I have tried vga=normal on the GRUB command line

19:52<ny>i just guess could be an universal solution at once, some thing related to video4linux being used in more than one distro, and ubuntu be debian based..
19:52<babilen>ny: it was not. It was a serious suggestion and is a prerequisite for getting support in #debian
19:52<ny>maybe a solution for debian works too.
19:52<babilen>!tell ny -about based on debian
19:52<babilen>!tell ny -about ubuntu

19:54<ny>ok, then, tell me an debian solution, and i will try and if dont work, will just leave =P (since its suposed to not work)
19:54<MrFrood>Vlam: how far exactly to you get before it goes blank?
19:55<Vlam>Right before it loads the daemons and tells me to login
19:55<babilen>egypt: "aptitude install alsa-utils" and then run "alsamixer" and unmute channels with "m" and raise their volume (up/down arrow key) ... might just work.
19:55<ny>or just kick me =0
19:56<egypt>babilen : ok
19:56<MrFrood>Vlam: does it switch to the framebuffer mode before it blanks?
19:56-!-ny [~ny@] has quit [Quit: Saindo]
19:56<Vlam>Describe the framebuffer mode
19:56<MrFrood>Vlam: screen res changes
19:57<Vlam>No there is no screen resolution change
19:58-!-wissem [~localhost@] has joined #debian
19:58<MrFrood>OK, here is my best guess...
19:58-!-amphi [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
19:59<MrFrood>The kernel uses "kernel mode setting" (kms) to set the framebuffer - I'm guessing that for some reasion it is setting the resolution to high
20:00<Vlam>The monitor resolution is 1440x900
20:00<Vlam>What should I do to fix it then?
20:00<MrFrood>I can't tell you how to disable kms but I think google probably could

20:17<MrFrood>Vlam: does it boot
20:17<Vlam>When it starts up it tries to register pcspkr but it says its already register then it says aborting, how do I make it stop trying to register it? And yes it does boot fine

22:10<Newbumz>So I have read through sftp and ssh forums and at loss. Is there a way to transfer files in *nix across a netowrk that does not make me want to configure a router and go back to windows?
22:11-!-aussa [] has joined #debian
22:11<Newbumz>I mean seriously is giver and samba the only option?
22:12<Newbumz>Work groups for windows security is a joke.. What is the linux solution please tell me... Really do I have too keep sneaker netting everything?

22:14-!-canaima [~canaima@] has joined #debian
22:15<babilen>zahid: mount it as root, and chown youruser:youruser /media/the_drive , unmount and try again (if filesystem != ntfs/fat*)

22:18<zahid>Newbumz: this may be helpful:
22:18<zahid>you may also try it via samba

22:19<zahid>it is very easy
22:19-!-egypt [~egypt@] has joined #debian
22:19<Newbumz>Ok new question lets say that I work for a very big company how one might go about letting users use a shared drive(s) across a network similar to samba?
22:20<ionut>last update of experimental gives me the "cannot reserve mmio" and it will not boot, even after I get passed the message.... how can I save my system??
22:21<egypt>I want to install grub on deve/sda12 ??
22:21<zahid>Newbumz: if it is the server then it is risky but for general users it is useful
22:21<zahid>they want to share files, printers etc
22:22<egypt> I want to install grub on dev/sda 12 ??
22:24<Newbumz>So lets say you have a desktop. laptop. network storage device and another desktop. How would you guru's make it so you can just watch something on the media device without scp
22:24<Newbumz>every time?
