00:02<sney>jack: it's in /sbin. /sbin/ifconfig will work, or you can add /sbin to your PATH, or do it as root (or with sudo)

00:07<george_>does debian not come with graphic card drivers if you install openbox instead of gnome or kde?
00:09<sney>no, it comes with the same ones
00:09<sney>but if you're looking for 3d support on a current nvidia or ati card, there are some steps you have to take to install those
00:10<george_>sney: ohh so it comes with an open-source driver, but for 3d graphics you need closed-source?
00:10-!-r0ger [~r0ger@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:10<sney>george_: in most cases, yes
00:10<sney>ati support is getting pretty good with the open source driver
00:11<sney>but even then you still need firmware-linux-nonfree to make it work all the way
00:11<george_>sney: alright, so what's the most up-to-date way of getting the graphics for an ati card?
00:11<sney>how new is it?
00:12<george_>sney: I mean, I've been running fine liek this for a few days, but I just tried Wolfenstein ET and CS1.6 and it lagged
00:12-!-aranax [~aranax@] has quit [Quit: Saliendo]
00:13<sney>george_: then installing firmware-linux-nonfree is all you need. the free driver is fine for that series.
00:14<sney>(without that firmware package, it's not using the whole gpu, which is the reason for your lag)
00:14<george_>sney: alright, and i'm guessing it's not open source, other than that do I need to configure anything or just restart X?
00:14<sney>just restart X
00:15<george_>sney: thank you so much for the simple instructions, let me try it out
00:15<sney>judd: versions firmware-linux-nonfree
00:15<judd>Package firmware-linux-nonfree on i386 -- lenny-backports/non-free: 0.27~bpo50+1; squeeze/non-free: 0.28; sid/non-free: 0.29; wheezy/non-free: 0.29

00:28<george_>sney: obama thing? osama bin laden getting killed?
00:28<george_>yeah interesting, it's all over the net
00:29<sney>offtopic in here, but that's why I didn't respond right away

00:36<george_>sney: weird, is there something wrong with this? deb squeeze contrib nonfree
00:36<george_>deb-src squeeze contrib nonfree
00:37<george_>trivial thing
00:37<sney>yeah, it's always the little stuff that gets ya
00:38<george_>sney: so if for example I had a newer card would i use some other type of package?
00:38<sney>yeah, the fglrx driver supports everything hd 2xxx and newer
00:39<george_>sney: ohh ok, is there any difference between them except for the support, they're both closed source right?
00:39-!-th [~Administr@] has joined #debian
00:40<sney>no, the 'radeon' driver (which you're using) is open source but requires a little bit of binary microcode. the 'fglrx' driver is completely closed source with the exception of kernel interface stuff
00:40<george_>sney: alright, thanks, let me try restarting X and wishing for the best, brb :)
00:40<sney>it's likely that someday the 'radeon' driver team will reverse engineer the gpus and the binary microcode will no longer be needed, and it'll be fully open source
00:41<george_>a little closed source won't kill us right ;)
00:41<sney>I'm not a computer activist or anything, but the closed source stuff is almost always annoying to use
00:41<sney>that's my position against it
00:41<george_>the new adobe flash for 64 bit is running well too, gnash was horrendous
00:42-!-thunderrd [~thunderrd@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]

07:14<dpkg>Your distribution may be based on and have software in common with Debian, but it is not Debian. We don't know what changes were made by your distribution and it probably falls short of Debian's standards. #debian only supports Debian; you should respect our choice to volunteer here to help Debian users. Support other distributions is off-topic on #debian, even if your own distro's channel is clueless or non-existent.

BackTrack is a Linux distribution based on <Ubuntu> Intrepid (as of BackTrack 4), previously <SLAX>.

08:26<Osiris_X>they happen to be sequentially positioned on the disk at the moment, so I want to move /usr to another PV, extend my root and then copy the data from the moved /usr to the usr folder on the root

08:45<daemonkeeper>This has nothing to do with apt
08:45<venom00ut>redirects are http redirects, otherwise you're not using but e.g.
08:45-!-yumi [] has joined #debian
08:46<venom00ut>and the problem there's only if you follow http redirects
08:46-!-yumi [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
08:46<venom00ut>well, in any case the redirect would be in ssl as well, so it's not possible

08:47<venom00ut>if you are able to do that, call me :)
08:48<seeS>dudes will black hats will give you a better offer if you can pull that off
08:49<daemonkeeper>Its probably not that unlikely, since authenticity proves the /remaining fields/ of the certificate more than everything else.
08:49<venom00ut>however the fact is that you don't simply verify packages through plain hash, but you have a signature mechanism

09:08<themill>!php paradox
09:08<dpkg>The PHP paradox is that the people running lenny with php 5.2 want to have php 5.3... while the people running squeeze with php 5.3 want to have php 5.2. This is actually a sad indictment of both php and the applications written in it.
09:08<themill>morph_work: but more seriously, wildcard pinning doesn't work that way -- you can't pin php5* like that. /msg dpkg pinning

09:09<themill>morph_work: pinning never quite works the way you want. (although I think sid's apt would now obey php5* like you want)
09:09<olasd>methinks oldstable php + stable + sid apt would be quite twisted :)
09:10<seeS>wow, i never heard of the php paradox

09:10<daemonkeeper>The PHP paradox is it exists although everyone dislikes it.
09:10<seeS>but 5.3 did have some new "features" which broke things
09:11<themill>morph_work: how hard would it be to fix the php you've got to work with 5.3? (or just rewrite in perl or python or...)
09:11<seeS>i must admit ive been tempted to rewrite it

09:11<morph_work>themill: dunno, my role is "sysadmin" while others are the developers and they say "do not ever in the world change from 5.2 to 5.3" so it's barely impossible

09:12<themill>daemonkeeper: those are major version changes that happen once every 15 years or so. This is a minor version bump of php that happens once every few months.
09:12<morph_work>themill: probably i'll just apt-cache search php5* and play with sed and tr to get a list of php5 pkgs in squeeze and list all of them in the Package line
09:13<themill>morph_work: a "forward port" of the lenny packages into squeeze might be more successful. Put them in your own private repo and pin that repo appropriately.

09:13<seeS>maybe if you pin the main one the others wont follow

12:05<Bulb>Hello folks. I started to have problems with sound since some recent update. KDE says the default device (HDA ATI SB (ALC889A Analog)) does not work. When I try aplay, it says the device (/dev/snd/pcmC0D0p) is BUSY and SDL applications hang on exit trying to join the audio thread which seems to be blocked.
12:05<daemonkeeper>Likelihood is a matter of statistics, it is not entirely impossible at least, although the chroot improves security a lot. Javascript can't do anything harmful on your local system (again asuming the browsers rendering engine is not vulnerable)

12:10<Bulb>There was a big KDE update including phonon, but it was before the previous reboot, so I wasn't that. On the other hand I removed old KDE3 cruft in the critical period, which included removing remains of ARTS. That took oss-compat along as no longer needed, but I reinstalled it.

12:10<Bulb>cahoot: phonon comes up in lsof.
12:10<Bulb>However, testing sound in KDE produces nothing, kde says sound does not work.

12:14<cahoot>not much use reloading alsa then I suppose
12:15<me1988><daemonkeeper>: I guess you mean that second chroot thing (read about that on Wikipedia ). Most of the concerns are justifiable afaik when the user got full access to the chrooted environment and is trying to break out. I thought lots of paranoid people were indeed chrooting browsers for enhanced security, or am I wrong? Otherwise the only solution were virtualization and that has been common for just a couple of years now
12:15-!-AzaToth [] has joined #debian
12:15<Bulb>cahoot: Actually force-reloading and resetting alsa-utils did help at least to the point that aplay did play something.
12:17-!-munga [~abate@] has quit [Read error: Operation timed out]
12:17<Bulb>So it apparently undid something the phonon service done to it -- the phonon service starts running under "speech-dispatcher" user before I log in, so I never tested after reboot without this phonon ever starting.
12:18<Bulb>... I'll try to run two concurrent players, since that is supposed to work, right?

12:20<Bulb>cahoot: Two aplay processes multiplex fine even when run under different users (I was testing from root console and started the other from user one)

Must be started by something else. I remember it was running as 'speech-dispatcher' user, so I'll look at which package might be starting something as that user.

14:22<omidp>E: Broken packages
14:23<keessince1988>Blitzmerker: sync and async How the input and output to the filesystem should be done. sync means it's done synchronously. If you look at the example fstab, you'll notice that this is the option used with the floppy. In plain English, this means that when you, for example, copy a file to the floppy, the changes are physically written to the floppy at the same time you issue the copy command.
14:23<keessince1988>However, if you have the async option in /etc/fstab, input and output is done asynchronously. Now when you copy a file to the floppy, the changes may be physically written to it long time after issuing the command. This isn't bad, and may sometimes be favorable, but can cause some nasty accidents: if you just remove the floppy without unmounting it first, the copied file may not physically exist on the floppy yet!
14:23<keessince1988>async is the default. However, it may be wise to use sync with the floppy, especially if you're used to the way it's done in Windows and have a tendency to remove floppies before unmounting them first.

14:49<nyov>raylu: since pretty much stuff depends on openssl that might not be easy, idk. but maybe still possible this early
14:50<nyov>downgrade openssl
14:50<raylu>haha. no way.
14:50<raylu>tre:~$ aptitude -s purge libssl1.0.0
14:50<raylu>0 packages upgraded, 0 newly installed, 377 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
14:50<raylu>the good news is i save 1.2GB of hard drive space if i do it ;)
14:50<nyov>i did not say purge
14:51-!-Gilde [] has joined #debian
14:51<raylu>purge is remove =\
14:51<nyov>if this works depend on how much stuff already depends on openssl > 0.9.8 in wheezy

14:54<raylu>nyov: both 0.9.8 and 1.0.0 are installed, which is the problem (as describe in the bug report). 0.9.8 is in wheezy

18:01<LetoPoole_>you need to activate direct rendering to get compiz

19:01<babilen>sney, joshua_: FWIW "direct rendering: Yes" is not enough to distinguish between software/hardware rendering. The complete output is needed (or at least all the ^OpenGL ones too)
19:02<sney>babilen: hence the glxgears check... software rendering never gives over 100ish fps
19:02<joshua_>I pretty definitely had hardware accel
19:03<babilen>sney: glxinfo would provide this information too, if joshua_ could paste the complete "glxinfo" output I am sure we find something ...

19:29<nyov>gets me here:
19:29<babilen>nyov: Yeah, I've seen that and am trying to find more information.
19:29<nyov>k, firmware should be there with that package
19:29<LetoPoole_>(related) do you need to reboot to actually load the firmware (or rmmod modprobe)?
19:29<nyov>but maybe not?
19:29<LetoPoole_>i think joshua restarted X
19:30<LetoPoole_>and thats it
19:30<babilen>You *might* need a newer version of xserver-xorg-video-radeon or of the mesa drivers. My google-fu fails me to come up with a nice feature matrix for driver versions/chipsets

19:32<babilen>Or jsut reboot :)
19:32<sney>babilen: the Xorg.0.log shows his card as being recognized, at least
19:32<joshua_>what will rebooting do?
19:32<LetoPoole_>reload the module and maybe the firmware
19:32<LetoPoole_>somtimes you have to reload the module
19:32<babilen>sney: yeah, all looks fine except for the direct rendering issues
19:32<LetoPoole_>to pick that
19:33<LetoPoole_>or always(?)
19:33<joshua_>sney_: we just found out before that software rasterizing was turned on
19:33<babilen>LetoPoole_: The firmware is requested when the module is inserted.

Derived from merging two penetration-testing distributions: WHAX (formerly WHOPPIX) and Auditor Security Linux.
21:23<nyov>#backtrack-linux on
21:23<oden>yeah I just there but nothing going on there
21:23<nyov>see, i need an index of those factoids :p

22:44<george_>does anyone here use ncmpcpp and can tell me why making a shorcut doesn't launch it?
22:46<aussa>hi, I installed a program with wine, and when I try to execute it a get a lot of: import_dll Library MSVCR90.dll (which is needed by L"C:\\Program Files\\Smith Micro\\Poser Pro 2010\\PoserPro.exe") not found, what could be the problem?
22:47<george_>aussa: you need to manually copy MSVCR90.dll into the System32 folder
22:47<george_>that should do it
22:48<aussa>there's a lot .dll's not found
22:48<george_>u need to get every single one that's missing :/
22:48<sney>I think there is a winetricks thing to install ms visual c++ runtimes, which is what that is
22:48<george_>you can find them online, if you just do a search for them
22:48<george_>hey sney
22:48<sney>hey george. I don't know about your ncmpcpp thing, sorry
22:48-!-xpli [~xpli@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]

22:50<aussa>sney: do I have to uninstall the program before getting winetricks?
22:50<george_>sney: that's alright, it's weird, every program works and this, which runs through a terminal, doesn't work when i use the openbox shortcut
22:51<k-man>what is the prefered graphical package manager to use?
22:51<sney>I think synaptic is the only one, but most power users use command line package managers like aptitude
22:52<k-man>sney, I use cli too - but its for a system I'm putting together for a novice
22:52<sney>synaptic it is, then. it works well enough.
22:52<k-man>thats why I'm not in touch with the graphical options and I don't use any :)
22:52<sney>it's part of the default gnome install.
22:52<k-man>thanks sney
22:52-!-dvs [] has quit [Quit: See ya!]
22:52<k-man>is there a lancher installed by default? (like keynote or spotlight)

22:53<sney>don't know
22:53-!-a7x [~a7x@] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
22:53<sney>well, aside from the ubiquitous 'run'

22:57<k-man>ah synaptic is much nicer than the softare manager or something I found before

23:37<sney>TheVilleDuece: if you have a debian support question, here is the place

23:39<TheVilleDuece>The guided partitioner wants me to select the entire drive instead of a single partion out of it. In the manual partitioner I can't seem to specify the partition as the installation drive or the root....The drive was already partitioned before I began the Debian installation
23:39<TheVilleDuece>3 partitions, first is win7, second is winxp, third is empty and i intended to put debian into it
23:41<TheVilleDuece>I originally wanted to start with GRUB before installing any of the OS's but I was told to install the 2 versions of windows first and to finish with debian last....and this is where i am at right now.

23:44<TheVilleDuece>Walking over to the debian install for 5seconds if I don't respond immediately
23:45<dspace>Try the manual option
23:45<dspace>You should be able to select the last (unused) partition
23:46<dspace>Delete it, then add the partitions you want ( / and swap, at a minimum)
23:46<TheVilleDuece>ok, ill give that a try right now
23:48<TheVilleDuece>"Separate /home partition"?
23:48<dspace>It's up to you. I do that. Pretty nice to have my settings immediately available if I do a clean reinstall
23:49<TheVilleDuece>ok, will that option also create a seperate swap partition?
23:49-!-masteryami [~masteryam@] has quit [Read error: Operation timed out]
23:49<TheVilleDuece>or is that a separate step
23:49-!-Flimzy [] has joined #debian
23:49<dspace>Are you doing the manual partitioning?
23:49-!-masteryami [~masteryam@] has joined #debian
23:49<TheVilleDuece>i deleted it, selected...ummm 1 second
23:50<dspace>And it's asking you if you want a separate /home ?
23:50<dspace>If you deleted the last partition, you should have some free space
23:50<TheVilleDuece>I'm in the manual partitioner, after deleting it I select the free space...from there I selected automatically partition free space
23:50<dspace>So click that and add a partition (leaving some space at the end for swap)
23:50<TheVilleDuece>i assumed i was still within the manual
23:50-!-Levenson [~alex@] has left #debian []
23:51<dspace>How much space is it?
23:51<dspace>I don't know if I would bother with a separate /home then
23:51<dspace>How much RAM do you have?
23:52<dspace>I would create a partition and make it 15.5 GB for / , the rest for swap. But that's just me :)
23:53<TheVilleDuece>Yah, I was thinking 1.5-2gb 'ish.
23:53<TheVilleDuece>Thank you very much for your help
23:53<dspace>ok :)
