01:15<vorteks>hello, i read on google i needd to run a virtaul window manager for internet explorer to run the fasfa student aid app. how can i do this?
01:16<sney>virtual window manager? that's probably not right
01:17<sney>they most likely meant you need a virtual machine running windows, like virtualbox. you can also run internet explorer in wine.
01:17<drkheart7>there is also playonlinux to do so
01:17<sney>playonlinux is a wine wrapper.
01:18<sney>and generally overcomplicated for just running a browser.
01:18<drkheart7>how so?
01:18<kFreeBSDNoob>Has anybody tried the Linux Sorcerer OS? I think it froze or something.

02:05<hnsndglsstrgll>phillipsjk, That's what I was wondering. For example, I know of people still using Firefox 3.6 who claim it's secure

02:31<nubfilter>what do you guys reccomend for creating an encrypted squeeze system? I am thinking I would like to require a USB key to boot, either by having the boot volume on the USB key, or just a decryption key on the USB key. What would you guys reccomend? I want the system to be completely unusable without the USB key.
02:31<nubfilter>(at BOOT time only, it will be removed for safe keeping after boot)
02:31<nevyn>dmcrypt is the new black.
02:32-!-rigved [~rigved@] has joined #debian
02:32<nevyn>I've been considering moving the crypt store out of the initrd somehow

02:41<catsup>nubfilter: put the bootloader on the usb key. otherwise, an attacker can still put code there
02:41-!-smith [~smith@] has joined #debian
02:41<nubfilter>that's what I'm thinking
02:41<nubfilter>catsup: the USB key must remain UNENCRYPTED, correct?
02:41<nevyn>so bootloader and initrd on usbkey
02:41<nevyn>nubfilter: nope.
02:42<catsup>well, the bootloader must remain unencrypted
02:42<nevyn>well the contents of the key itself
02:42-!-nexxen [] has joined #debian
02:42<nevyn>but not the disk key
02:42<catsup>but your private key, to decrypt the disk, can be encrypted with a passphrase
02:42<catsup>that doesn't protect you against an attacker who can steal the usb key and replace it without your knowledge
02:42-!-nexxen [] has quit []
02:43<catsup>but it does protect you against an attacker who steals the usb key and the hard drive (which is more likely)
02:43<nubfilter>Ideally I would like the key to be required, and a passphrase to decrypt the keys on the USB key
02:43<nubfilter>but then the key to be removable after boot
02:43<nubfilter>obviously :)
02:43<catsup>nubfilter: i actually wrote a custom installer, that sets everythign up just like that
02:44<nubfilter>catsup: what are the chances a guy like me could get a copy of that?
02:44<catsup>unfortunately, you probably wouldn't find it useful at this point
02:44<nubfilter>or perhaps a handy URL with some how-tos. I am not finding one that that seems to be exactly what im looking for
02:45<catsup>it is a component in a larger system i am working on and is not exactly in a polished state
02:46<nubfilter>well I was thinking there must be some way to manually bootstrap the installer after doing some manual tweaking pre install
02:46<catsup>just do a normal install with /boot on a separate partition and everything else encrypted
02:47<nubfilter>so you would mount /boot to /dev/<usbID>
02:48<nubfilter>and then specify it as the device to install the bootloader?
02:48-!-Se-bash [] has quit [Quit: Saliendo]
02:48<catsup>actually what i had in mind was putting /boot on the hard drive
02:48<catsup>then you can install it to usb later
02:49-!-dodddummy [] has quit [Read error: Operation timed out]
02:49<catsup>but it would probably be possible to massage the debian installer to do it directly
02:49<nubfilter>yes that was my thought
02:49<catsup>you should be able to specify your usb key on /boot just with the manual partition option
02:50-!-zidagar [] has joined #debian
02:50-!-resmo [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
02:50<catsup>the only issue is maybe the grub install won't want to go on there -- you might have to go to the installer console, chroot to /target, and configure grub manually
02:51<catsup>don't forget to back up your usb key
02:51<nubfilter>Yes, i purchased 5 just in case.
02:51-!-chitchat [~guest@] has quit [Read error: Operation timed out]
02:52<costas>well, I used to be a privacy freak myself... a good BIOS password is enough for me these days...
02:52<dpkg>Encryption is useful to keep data protected on your system. There is a nice guide on how to use LVM encrypted partitions at . See also <dm-crypt>, <encfs>, <gpg>, <luks>.
02:52<costas>the above sounds good to the ones that need it...
02:53-!-otypoks [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
02:53<catsup>costas: bios password?? you can just remove the disk
02:53<nubfilter>or... put in the reset jumper?
02:53-!-davyg [] has joined #debian
02:54<costas>well, my home is safe... noone gets in, so I don't worry...
02:54<catsup>then why use a bios password?
02:54<nubfilter>I have to have the drive unreadable, I will have data that I will be liable for if disclosed.
02:55<nubfilter>if they take the machine, or just the drive.
02:55<costas>it was back in the day I used windows, in order to avoid tricky trojans
02:56<costas>in nubfilter's case I suggest LVM encryption, or a custom installer with strong passwords like you were talking about previously...

02:57-!-Martian [~martian@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
02:59-!-gnuk [] has joined #debian
02:59<costas>...but passwords are only good if you change them often...
03:00<nubfilter>A strong password and a physical USB key would be good enough for me
03:01-!-hychen [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
03:01<nubfilter>it requires physically having the key, and also knowing the secret
03:01<phillipsjk>And this key will be hard to duplicate?
03:02<costas>nubfilter, in your case I would suggest encrypted external hard drives with all sensitive data there, not on the system in use...

03:19<neal>new to this
03:19<soloflyer>k-man_: is that module even packaged in debian? i cant find it at all
03:20<soloflyer>k-man_: if its not specifically packaged, just grab it from cpan

03:21<k-man_>soloflyer, sorry, I meant this package:
03:21<philippeB>need to be check 8I am not sure) but perhaps it is packaged in libdatetime-format-dbi-perl
03:22<philippeB>yep :-)
03:22<EmleyMoor>(would I perhaps be able to try a 64-bit package intended for Ubuntu and easily back it out if it doesn't work, say?)
03:22-!-xromiuz [] has quit [Quit: leaving]
03:23<chealer>Prathi: try setting X to use the vesa driver instead, or try wheezy instead of squeeze
03:23<soloflyer>k-man_: what version does this tell you that you have dpkg -l libdatetime-format-dbi-perl
03:23-!-jhutchins_lt [] has joined #debian
03:24<k-man_>soloflyer, 0.035-1
03:24<soloflyer>EmleyMoor: as long as the package has been built correctly, and you keep track of the non-standard packages you should be able to install and easily backout using dpkg
03:25<soloflyer>k-man_: according to 0.040-a is available in testing
03:25<EmleyMoor>soloflyer: OK, might try that.
03:26*EmleyMoor has some interesting ideas for interactive fiction...

05:32<will>can someone tell me which software is recommended to use a 56k usb modem?
05:33<will>i tried gnome ppp but it can't detect the hardware
05:33<will>because i don't have the /dev/modem device file
05:34<petemc>some modems werent proper modems at all but required all the work done in software, of which a linux version may not exist
05:34<petemc>least, thats how i remember it, been a while
05:34<jww>winmodems :\
05:34<jww>will: which brand/model is your modem ?
05:34<will>i own a us robotics 5637

05:36<will>indeed that's why i choose it
05:37<will>but on the us robotics website there's no guide for linux
05:37<will>only a flash utility with a firmware

05:40<will>but i don't know think /dev/usb/xx/xx is the common device file
05:40<kooll>iirc, it should pretty much just works. you may need to load acm module. I think that modem is very standard (usc cdc-acm protocol)
05:41<kooll>ah, no, the module name is cdc-acm , not just acm
05:41<kooll>look at the output of dmesg just before and after you plug the modem to the computer

05:49<will>i can see "cdc_acm 1-1:2.0: ttyACM0: USB ACM device" in messages

05:53<kooll>will: maybe gnome-ppp is looking for a /dev/modem device, you can do : ln -s /dev/ttyACM0 /dev/modem
05:54<will>kooll: i changed to the field to /dev/ttyACM0 but it failed
05:54<kooll>with which error message?

07:06<classical>how can i figure out which grub version is used to boot the operating system ?
07:07<r4co0n>classical: The installer seems to think u are using LILO.
07:08<mobildorn>user01: You could try to use gnash instead of flash to prove/eliminate flash as cause.
07:09<r4co0n>classical: Which u can overcome by installing grub2 (namely grub) to the MBR of your hard-disk(the one from which u are booting)
07:09<r4co0n>classical: There are next to no reasons to prefer LILO over GRUB2 imho
07:10<classical>r4co0n, yes i know and i prefer to use grub
07:10<classical>and grub is installed here
07:10<classical>but also i see that there is lilo too
07:10<mobildorn>One valid reason I know is: Grub does not support the filesystem where your kernel lives.
07:10<classical>but i do not know which one will be used when i reboot the system
07:11-!-mode/#debian [+l 503] by debhelper
07:11<mobildorn>classical: You could purge lilo, do a grub-install /dev/sda (or hda) and update-grub.
07:11<mobildorn>In most cases your system should use grub then.
07:11<r4co0n>classical: Not the gentleman way, but if u grub-install again and get rid of lilo

07:20<babilen>r4co0n: You could also just stay with the default MTA exim4. The setup is covered in /usr/share/doc/exim4-config/README.Debian.gz -- Dovecot also ships extensive documentation, so have a look at /usr/share/doc/dovecot.*/README.Debian

07:37<babilen>tuhin: No, why would you want to do that? Just add the sources (if you want we can have a look at your sources.list) and install whatever you want/need
07:37<tuhin>i ddint see any such option to setup sources, and the pc was wired to internet
07:37<r4co0n>tuhin: It is, something broke
07:37<babilen>r4co0n: Just use exim4+dovecot
07:37<r4co0n>babilen: Ay sir.
07:37<mobildorn>tuhin: I think the live cds are mainly intended for recovery and demo usage, not for daily use.
07:37<tuhin>i only have the CD itself as added Source !

07:39<tuhin>ok i will install again and look herder
07:39-!-capunk [~capunk@] has joined #debian
07:39<babilen>tuhin: Yes, that is an installation method most people are not (yet!) familiar with. I personally have never used that and therefore fail to debug the process. I'll talk to the maintainers later about this problem and the reasons for this behaviour. For now: Just add the sources you want, update and install whatever you desire.
07:39<mobildorn>Most live cds I used came with the latter, which is intended for more experienced users.
07:40<tuhin>ohok , so why synaptic is missing while there is openoffice?
07:41<tuhin>why dont u pls try to refine the live cd desktop installer shortcut
07:41<r4co0n>tuhin: What would u want the desktop installer to act like?
07:42-!-amarprasovic [] has joined #debian
07:42<r4co0n>tuhin: Ive never used it, but suppose its just a standard graphical install
07:42-!-amarprasovic [] has left #debian []
07:42<tuhin>to at least add the sources in sources.list
07:42<r4co0n>tuhin: It does that - Normally. I dont think this behaviour is intended.
07:42<mobildorn>Has synaptic any advantages over aptitude?
07:42<tuhin>the only source is the install CD in that file!
07:43<tuhin>synaptic lets me search and install
07:43<r4co0n>tuhin: Maybe try an expert install if u are asked...
07:43<r4co0n>tuhin: aptitude does that
07:43<r4co0n>tuhin: apt does that
07:43<tuhin>i selected manul and set / , /boot , /home and swap myself

07:45<r4co0n>tuhin, I can somehow understand your frustration, it would be really helpful if u check if u can reproduce this behaviour (not being asked to add external sources). If it is reproducable and ur MD5-hash of the iso is correct, file a bug against debian-installer.
07:46-!-NoxDaFox [~nox@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
07:46<babilen>tuhin: There is *absolutely* no reason to install again. You'll just lose time. You can add the sources yourself now and be done with it.
07:46<tuhin>hm ok, i m from NB now , i will install in Desktop and will note in NB
07:47<r4co0n>babilen: True, but he needs a list of what belongs to a standard desktop
07:47<babilen>r4co0n: tuhin can just make sure that the desktop task is installed. tasksel will do that.
07:47<r4co0n>babilen: There was some tool being able to pull the meta-packages offered by the installer, I cant remember now...
07:47<tuhin>ok babilen , for the sake of new users, pls try to install that way in vbox and fix for evbody
07:48<mobildorn>tuhin: Do you have apt-spy on your system?
07:48<r4co0n>tuhin, link to the exact iso u are using pls.
07:48<tuhin>dont know , its fresh install of LXDE
07:49<r4co0n>tuhin: dpkg -s <package-name>
07:49<babilen>tuhin: I already told you that I will discuss this with the maintainers later -- If you are interested, try to reproduce the error (standard/expert install) and file a bug. I am just giving you advice in order to minimise the time you have to spend to get your system configured the way you want it.
07:49<r4co0n>it shouldnt be there, i suppose

07:52<r4co0n>tuhin: Ask me in an hour, should be done trying till then...
07:52<tuhin>babilen: i understand all experts use text mode etc , and that shortcut was available on desktop, so i just used that after trying debian live

07:55<tuhin>the chipset is 2 years old
07:55<babilen>tuhin: This has nothing to do with gui/text installers. It is the choice of the image -- You would typicallu use the non-live images, such as those listed on
07:56<tuhin>i have other pcs which r 32 bit + have limited+slow internet , so i choose 32 bit so that i can install anywhere
07:56<babilen>tuhin: That said: I completely agree that it should work the way you want it to and it should be considered a bug if what you intended to achieve can not be achieved with the live installer.

10:51<r4co0n>babilen: Nothing googlish appeared in traceroute, it should be the first spot accessed after leaving homenet, shouldnt it?
10:51<Froshz>Since apt-get install php5 has apache dependencies, does that become junk or useless to me if I use nginx?
10:52<Zborg>babilen: really, so the old "dpkg --get-selections | grep '[[:space:]]install$'| awk '{print $1}' > installedpackages" method isn't recommended anymore?
10:52<babilen>r4co0n: You would have to use tools like dig to speak to your DNS server. It will probably be a caching server on your router that speaks to your ISP
10:53<babilen>Zborg: I recommend the aptitude way as it preserves the information about automatically installed packages and takes care that you get a list of *only* the packages you installed explicitly. It relies on the dependencies of these packages to pull in the rest

11:35<babilen>SynrG: Ah, great you are here. tuhin had problems with the live installer in that it did not allow him to select any mirrors / create a sources.list during the installation. It could be reproduced by r4co0n... is this a known issue?
11:35<tuhin><babilen> i mean not evbody knows that people who lives at bangladesh are called "Bangladeshi" :) i thought u r from my country

11:36<r4co0n>SynrG: We are talking about the installer launched from the live-desktop, expert text install works flawlessly.
11:37<babilen>tuhin: I had enough lessons about Bangladesh in school (mostly Geography) to know the proper way of referring to the people of Bangladesh. This is off-topic though and we shouldn't continue this discussion here.
11:37<catsup>tuhin: are you addressing that to babilen? it looks like you are quoting babilen when you say it like that with <babilen> in front
11:37<tuhin>no i m not quoting
11:37<catsup>ok, just fyi, addressing messages with 'nick:' is always best; many irc clients will handle that specially

11:38<r4co0n>changed that
11:39<catsup>xchat fail :/
11:39<SynrG>babilen, r4co0n, tuhin: live-installer installs what's on the media. network isn't strictly necessary (and may fail in any case, if it was already configured with NM, particularly if wireless was used)
11:39<moumoutte>babilen: Yep, but I cannot connect to the ldap... so even if I want to add new entry in the db, I cannot.. because the service is not running
11:39<tuhin>i was wired to internet
11:39<SynrG>when netcfg runs, NM's wireless connection is dropped
11:39<SynrG>well, i haven't extensively tested it with wired.
11:40<r4co0n>SynrG: Network was up and running on the live-desktop. Shouldnt this installer be a bit more specific about what it is doing, like "copy live img to disk" instead of "Install", where I think I will find a normal debian installer.
11:40<babilen>moumoutte: Well, you upgraded to a version from sid. How did you do that? Did you read the documentation about what it takes for this upgrade to succeed? I guess you want to ask in #openldap (freenode) about an appropriate upgrade path.
11:40<tuhin>also r4co0n found it did kernel panic too
11:40<SynrG>r4co0n: um? it *is* a normal debian installer
11:41<SynrG>it only differs in where it gets its bootstrap
11:41-!-gusnan [] has quit [Quit: Lämnar]
11:41<SynrG>it runs all of the same stuff that debian-installer does
11:41<SynrG>it doesn't just "copy live img to disk". that would be braindead
11:41<tuhin>SynrG: its Debian Live LXDE 6.01
11:42<r4co0n>r4co0n: why not mirror selection and package selection? wait, we have to get this straight, i suppose it wants to do mirror selection, but throws me back to the main menu because of an error. Hitting continue results in a loop...
11:42<babilen>r4co0n: Stop talking to yourself ;)
11:42<SynrG>since it's installing packages from the image, just continue without a network.
11:42<SynrG>if the network gives you trouble

15:45<sney>rajesh: no? :/
15:46<sney>rajesh: if you ctrl-alt-f4, does the log there show whether it was detected and is just missing firmware or what?
15:46<rajesh>and i don't know the specifics to why it might be listed in the driver list and have a *.ko under /lib/modules yet not be recognized.
15:46-!-OutOfLine [] has left #debian [ERC Version 5.3 (IRC client for Emacs)]
15:46<sney>the driver is most likely there. e1000.ko has been included by default for years.
15:47<sney>it just isn't loading, probably due to a firmware issue.
15:47-!-PIrr [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
15:47<babilen>rajesh: Given that the T420 is *really* new I am not entirely sure what the problem might be. But you could install using the CD1, install a newer kernel (say 2.6.38 from wheezy/sid) and the firmware packages (firmware-linux-nonfree most likely)

15:49<rajesh>hw-detect actually tries eth1394 (firewire ethernet) first. if i choose e1000e, it insmod's it, but the installer still says none detected.
15:53<rajesh>lemme check if e1000e is indeed the module loaded when the hardware is detected.

18:36<glupek>I do have to reinstall graphics drivers evey time kernel updates?
18:36<sney>yes unless you use dkms
18:37<craigevil>glupek, not if you are using the open sources drivers and install them the debian way you dont
18:37<Deft0nes>sney: so the "linux-2.6_2.6.38.orig.tar.gz" and the "linux-base_3.2~bpo60+1_all.deb"
18:37<craigevil>but if you are using fglrx or the nvidia drivers then yes
18:37<glupek>What's dkms?
18:37<dpkg>Dynamic Kernel Module Support (DKMS) is a framework for generating out-of-tree Linux kernel modules. Packages using DKMS build modules during installation and when updated Linux versions are installed, provided Linux headers are present (these are not installed by dkms). DKMS-managed modules are installed to /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/updates/dkms/ . The module build log file can be found at /var/lib/dkms/$module/$version/build/make.log

19:35<sney>that's a game, right?
19:36<sparky4>sney: correct
19:36<sparky4>sney: when i type alot of commands or talked alot the bug happends

19:37<sney>so the keyboard dies ingame if you press several keys at once, that's what you're saying
19:37<sparky4>sney: the bug is still occurring
19:38<sparky4>sney: in a nutshell
19:38<sparky4>sney: the keyboard is fine
19:38<sparky4>sney: it is just when the bugg happends the game dose to recive any keyboard imputs
19:39<sney>sounds like an xorg input issue. it might be solvable with xorg.conf tweaking. does it happen with any other games or just cube2?

20:48<burnclouds>eh. this has been a problem since i got the laptop. I started with pre-lenny

20:51<SynrG>ok. ah, actual problem is not powering off ...
20:51<SynrG>maybe you have to force-unload some module
20:52<buhman>I deleted my .irssi, and starting reconfiguring it from scratch, and I've now arrived at precisely the same issue

20:54<SynrG>sney: certainly
20:54<SynrG>burnclouds: well, i wasn't implicating that module. just using it as an example :)
20:54<SynrG>that bug has long since been fixed (for the eeepc)
20:54<SynrG>i just wondered if it were the same class of problem here
20:54<burnclouds>let me do an rmmod snd_hda_intel and try the shutdown BRB
20:54<SynrG>well: modprobe -r snd_hda_intel is better
20:54<burnclouds>it's worth a shot
20:55<SynrG>it probably won't work though
20:55<burnclouds>whats the -r for?
20:55<SynrG>your desktop probably has a mixer applet
20:55<SynrG>it probably keeps the device open
20:55<burnclouds>no applets...
20:55<burnclouds>running flux
20:55<SynrG>well, maybe it will work then :)
20:55<SynrG>you just need all sound-using apps closed
20:55<burnclouds>and did you mean rmmod -f ?
20:56<SynrG>web browser, for example
20:56<SynrG>no, i meant modprobe -r

20:56<burnclouds>"sudo modprobe -r snd_hda_intel" doesn;t toss any errs
20:57<SynrG>alsa has this huge chain of dependent modules, so usually 'modprobe -r' is what you want (removes the whole chain of them, when nothing else uses the dependent modules)

21:07<SynrG>it may be the same *class* of problem, however
21:07<SynrG>the trick is to try to see something going wrong as it is shutting down
21:07<SynrG>such as, but not limited to, failure to unload a module
21:08-!-skyegg_a1ay [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
21:09<SynrG>unfortunately, this kind of thing tends to not get logged in syslog because everything has been torn down by the time it fails
21:09<SynrG>so we'd need to somehow have the kernel still logging messages somewhere even as it dies
21:10-!-duxklr [] has joined #debian
21:10<SynrG>i'm hazy on details, not having done it myself, but understand such tools exist.

21:12<burnclouds>is there a way I can force unload all modules just before shutdown?
21:13-!-hardwalker [] has joined #debian
21:13<SynrG>shotgun approach? not sure you want to do that. it brings you no closer to an actual solution
21:14-!-selbeimanti [] has joined #debian
21:14<SynrG>if you think my theory has some credence but are not equipped to look for error messages on shutdown, you could try taking the system most of the way down (say, drop to single mode) and then unload unessential modules, one subsystem at a time
21:15-!-leafar [~leafar@] has joined #debian
21:15<SynrG>ending with a shutdown. if-and-when that yields positive results, narrow down which of the last group of modules you removed actually is the culprit (could do a binary search here to speed things up ... reinstate half the modules, etc.)
21:17-!-ayaka [~randy@] has joined #debian
21:18<sney>either that, or figure out remote kernel shutdown logging and look for synrg's elusive 'bonk'.

21:35<nubfilter>hey guys... so I just started a fresh install (*cry*) over my FreeBSD system. I chose an encrypted LVM install... and it appears the erase is taking FOREVER. is this doing a multipass wipe?
21:37<clinton>Hi all. You know how debian by default has 6 virtual terminals, which ps -Af lists from tty1 to tty6? Well, it seems even after I load up X, tty1 is still reading the keyboard. Which means when I log into X, I log into tty1 at the same time, and everything I type (including this message) gets send as a command to tty1. Is there a way to stop tty1 from listening to keyboard events after X starts up? Note I've set up multihead in xorg.conf, so I may have do
21:37<clinton>ne something screwy there, but it seems to have only become a problem in squeeze.

23:35<sney>there is basically nothing in squeeze backports

23:36<judd>Package evolution on i386 -- lenny:; squeeze: 2.30.3-5; wheezy: 2.32.2-2; sid: 2.32.3-1; experimental: 3.0.0-2
23:36<sney>yeah, ssb would be sufficient.
23:36<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. To change compilation options, see <package recompile>; for versions newer than sid see <uupdate>.
23:36<sney>so you'd be building it from the debian sources rather than upstream, with assistance from apt, it's more likely to Just Work
