03:26<pufa>did i need to put some info there?
03:27-!-niekie [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
03:28<cahoot>pufa: just run wpa-supplicant from commandline - when got that to run as expected it's time to edit config files
03:28<Parsifal>pufa: Are you entering a password or a passkey (alphanumeric or hexadecimal)?
03:28<cahoot>(well apart from the wpa-supplicant.conf)
03:28<Parsifal>I might be that you're entering a hexadecimal passkey and wicd is interpreting it as alphanumeric for some reason.
03:28-!-niekie [] has joined #debian
03:30<pufa>in wicd i type my pass on wpa 1/2 passphrase
03:30<pufa>in plain text

03:31<pufa>wpa_supplicant give me help of command
03:34<esmaeil>hi all
03:34<Parsifal>pufa: The fact that it's saying bad passphrase sounds like it's an authentication issue -- are you able to enter the same thing as a preshared key instead and see if it accepts that?

03:55<mercutio22>Hi.. I just installed debian stable on a laptop with a netinstall usb and choose an open wireless network to download packages. When done.. Network manager would not display any wifi networks.
03:56-!-seeS [] has joined #debian
03:56<mercutio22>I had to comment all lines relating to the wireless interface on /etc/network/interfaces in order for this to be resolved

03:56<mercutio22>I would consider that a bug to report. Against which package should I do it? Network-manager?
03:57<mercutio22>a package relating to the installation process perhaps is more appropriate
03:58<`Ile`>mercutio22: i should first try to install wireless-tools package and check out few things with it

05:53<Volley>agreed. i allready feel physical pain imagining how to fix such a mess
05:53<themill>olololo: "aptitude reinstall ~i" will sort out packages, you'd need to fix up /home yourself. Restoring from a backup would probably be easier, really.
05:54<olololo>thanks all of you, pretty logical i guess, going to pray and see what to do :)

09:02-!-S-Wo [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
09:03<dpkg>The Debian installer comes in many forms (CD1, netinst, business card, DVD), but the installer you use and the system you end up with is identical in each case. The only difference is when the packages are downloaded: if you grab the DVDs then you are downloading lots of packages that you might not need; if you download the <netinst>, then when you go to install packages using aptitude later on, they will be downloaded at that time.
09:04<nevyn>nerrtrow: make all the gnome dependancies not automatic in aptitude
09:04<babilen>nerrtrow: Ok, that is pretty easy to solve. You have to make sure that all packages you would like to keep are marked as being manually (i.e. not automatically) installed.
09:04<babilen>nerrtrow: There are different approaches, that also depend on what you are trying to achieve eventually
09:04-!-krayn [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
09:04-!-krayn [] has joined #debian
09:05<babilen>nerrtrow: The first would be to install gnome-session (the minimal set of packages/programs you need to run a gnome session) and "aptitude unmarkauto" additional packages.
09:05-!-Newa [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
09:05<babilen>nerrtrow: That would slim down your installation base quite considerably if you don't unmarkauto a bunch of packages.
09:05-!-nerrtrow [] has quit []
09:06<babilen>nerrtrow: The second approach is to mark *all* dependencies of gnome as being manually installed by running "aptitude unmarkauto '~Rgnome'"

10:08<babilen>ok -- if you run "aptitude update" in the future (which you should do regularly) it will update the list of packages (and their versions) -- You can install upgrades (if any) by running "aptitude safe-upgrade" and (if that still leaves some packages) "aptitude full-upgrade".

10:51<babilen>Nik05: In order to install that driver we need to install the kernel headers (the kernel is the core of the operating system that deals with hardware support among other things) by running: aptitude -r install linux-headers-2.6-`uname -r|sed 's,[^-]*-[^-]*-,,'`
10:51<Nik05>ooh and babilen what is the different between apt-get and apitude?
10:52<Nik05>ok wait i minute... do i need to run "aptitude -r install linux-headers-2.6-`uname -r|sed 's,[^-]*-[^-]*-,,'`"

10:52<babilen>Nik05: Different programs with slightly different sets of features and behaviour. aptitude has vastly superiour dependency resolution and search facilities but tries to be a bit too smart for some peoples taste. Stick with aptitude for now.

So, anyone with any experience with this or other current asus MB´s? Thanks
11:05<themill>user01: yes, openjdk-6-jdk and sun-java6-jdk are co-installable. You can use "update-java-alternatives" to switch between them, or point your tools at the appropriate JAVA_HOME.

11:06<user01>sney, readme of the package?
11:06<Nik05>babilen do i need to paste it? first commands says no packages will be installed, upgraded, or removed
11:06<sney>user01: yes, as in the build instructions
11:06-!-daemonkeeper [] has joined #debian

11:07<minimalseeker>I have debian squeeze for the x86_64 architecture. Does it mean that that apt-get will automatically try to install binaries suitable for this architecture then (ie I don't need to specify anything in addition)
11:08<webad_13>minimalseeker, yes but also look because some programs might requre 32 libs - such as skype

11:43<daemonkeeper>($HOME, ~, ...)
11:44<minimalseeker>Hmmm why is it that Conky is telling me that I am using 172 MB of Ram while Top and Free are telling me that I am using 381 MB (with 124 MB buffers)
11:44-!-Judas_PhD [] has joined #debian
11:44<minimalseeker>Is conky right or are top/free right?

11:46<Nik05>ok one question left. I have 3 partitions on my hardisk: 1. Windows 7, 2. storage, 3. debian
11:47<Nik05>how do i access 2. storage without entering my root password every time?
11:47<minimalseeker>mutante, how is this:

11:56<esmaeil>mutante: i tried but unfortunately it didn't work!
11:57<mutante>esmaeil: i guess, then your next chance is getting the source packages, and recompiling them on a Debian box
11:57<esmaeil>mutante: how can i do?
11:59<daemonkeeper>!package recompile
11:59<dpkg>1) Add a <deb-src> line for your current release to your sources.list 2) aptitude update; aptitude install build-essential devscripts fakeroot; aptitude -R build-dep packagename 3) as any user, apt-get source packagename 4) cd packagename-version/; ask me about <debian/rules>; 5) dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot -uc -us 6) as root, dpkg -i ../packagename-version.deb. Ask me about <debian/rules>, <nocheck>, <apt-get source>.
12:00<mutante>esmaeil: somehow like: apt-get source testdrive on the Ubuntu box, and copy the source package it downloads to the Debian box, or directly from , then read up on creating your own .deb ...

13:32<AzaToth>edbian: what are you trying to accomplish?
13:32<themill>arunr: I'd be tempted to run "aptitude remove ~o" there to remove all of them as i doubt there's much there that you're using at the moment.
13:33<edbian>AzaToth: find a file named 'item'
13:33<edbian>AzaToth: searching from the root dir
13:33<themill>edbian: errors are on stderr not stdout; only stdout goes down the pipeline.
13:33<edbian>themill: oh
13:33-!-bertie_wooster [~earl@] has joined #debian
13:33<grove>edbian: That error message are written to stder, you only pipe stdout to grep, use find ... 2>&1 | ...
13:33<AzaToth>edbian: also you might want to add some dashes ツ
13:34<edbian>find / -iname item 2>&1 | grep -v Permission
13:34<AzaToth>edbian: perthaps add -nowarn
13:34-!-`Ile` [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
13:35<stderr_dk>Or just throw stderr away and skip the grep -v: find / -iname item 2>/dev/null
13:35<edbian>all great ideas
13:35<AzaToth>or just run it as root ツ

16:07<sney>Osiris_X: well, you could copy it over, change fstab, and reboot
16:07<CyL>daemonkeeper: cbc-essiv is less secure than xts and is more processor intensive...

16:14<andreyputilov>Hello. I have some problems with sound. Can I ask here?
16:15<CyL>daemonkeeper: nope, I'm too paranoid to encrypt just /home... I want whole disk encryption :)
16:15<andreyputilov>I`ve used Ubuntu since 8.10, and sound worked always. Now I have got rid of it. I`ve mouted the old home directory, though some old settings could have place.
16:15<andreyputilov>Now I see now errors or warnings, but I here no sound.
16:16<andreyputilov>I suppose my card is supported, because:

16:16-!-andreyputilov was kicked from #debian by debhelper [use or /msg dpkg paste]
16:16<daemonkeeper>CyL: There are few reasons to encrypt the entire system, however be happy to do, if it is worth for you. Depending on your answer in #debian-boot, you may want to bootstrap it instead of using d-i

16:25<jhutchins_lt>costas: What about a BIOS update?

16:25<andreyputilov>and I don`t know how to use lsmod, sorry
16:26<Osiris_X>andreyputilov, if pulseaudio was loaded you would see something like : 4794 3.9 0.4 161240 4264 ? Ssl 06:45 34:29 /usr/bin/pulseaudio --start

16:51<dpkg>[oss4] Open Sound System is a cross-platform set of device drivers providing a standard audio API for Unix systems. OSS/Free was in the 2.2 and 2.4 series of Linux kernels, with OSS/Linux remaining proprietary, replaced by <ALSA> in Linux 2.6. Open Sound System v4.0 was made available under the GPLv2 in July 2007, packaged for Debian Squeeze. #oss on
16:51<streuner>yes, thats what he told us after we told him about OSS4
16:51<andreyputilov>sorry, maybe this is only a codec problem, because some file formats I heared now.
16:52<costas>it's not the greek politics issue, if alsa doesn't work just use OSS4...

18:32<Nik05>then i moved it to /usr/lib64/teamspeak is that a correct place?
18:32<tic>Thamus:yep,i have alsa-base and utils
18:32<babilen>Nik05: No -- Put it in /usr/local (best use stow -- /msg dpkg stow -- /msg dpkg stow usage) -- or just leave it in ~/bin/ and modify the path accordingly
18:33<ycr>Hello I lost many of the combinations of the keyboard with ctrl+ something, after updating the system do can someone help me in restore the default combinations
18:33<Thamus>Tic have you looked at your dmesg yet?
18:33<babilen>Nik05: modify the PATH accordingly that is -- stow is a good option though
18:33<Thamus>Tic is your user name added to your audio group?
18:33<Nik05>huh what do you mean babilen ?
18:34<Nik05>is it correct to move the dir to /usr/lib64?
18:34<babilen>Nik05: well, go and read some documentation -- /msg dpkg general cli tutorial -- /msg dpkg reference
18:34<Arrowmaster>tic: check your private messages and follow the alsa checklist that dpkg messaged to you
18:34<babilen>Nik05: that is certainly *not* correct
18:34<Nik05>ooh :p
18:34<tic>Thamus:Im on audio group and there is my dmesg :
18:34<Nik05>it was a file with the extension .run
18:35<Nik05>so i runned it in /home/downloads
18:35-!-sim6 [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
18:35<Nik05>and it create a dir in there
18:35<babilen>Nik05: locally installed software goes into /usr/local -- but you can also just leave it in your home directory (~) and set the PATH where your shell searches for commands to run accordingly
18:35<Thamus>Ok Tic I will take a look at it now
18:35<Nik05>ok so i need to move it from /usr/lib64 to /usr/local?
18:36<babilen>Nik05: I know nothing about teamspeak, but local installation should *never* mess with anything outside of /usr/local
18:36<Nik05>mess? i just moved it to /usr/lib64.... :p
18:36<Nik05>should i move it to /usr/local/lib?

18:40<babilen>Nik05: Why /lib? I would move it to /usr/local/stow/teamspeak and use stow to create proper symbolic links. Please, you need to read a bit of documentation. You'll be lost otherwise and might break your system.
18:41<Nik05>ooh ok :)
18:41-!-sim6 [] has joined #debian
18:41<tic>Arrowmaster:Thanks for the message but it didn't work and modprobe is not found! (WTF) Should I reinstall ?

18:41<Arrowmaster>modprobe is root only
18:41<babilen>Nik05: I know, you'll have to create it.
18:41<ycr>how to restore keyboard shortcuts ?
18:41<tic>Arrowmaster: oh...sorry

18:45<xuser>aussa: yes
18:46<xuser>ycr: go to gnome keyboard settings and click the default bottom
18:47<daemonkeeper>Kull: This documentation dates back to a time, where KDE4 was in sid, not in stable yet. You aren't supposed to download those packages, just get the names, to find out which meta package you want
18:47<ycr>thanks xuser i did that but still not working, simple things like CTRL+C are not working
18:47<Nik05>does someone know how i change audio devices?

20:12<jk_yang>i have a server running debian 6 and when it reboots i have it set to auto start everything.. but i am having one issue its hamgs at keyring password so i cant use vnc.. how can i bypass that because i am not colse to my server all the time and need to be able to control it after a power fail say if one occures
20:12<Planet8>How can I atleats supress those damned kernel messages going to the console?

20:14<gardo>Nines, then you have something wrong with your wireless connection's config
20:14<MrFrood>jk_yang: if you can live with the security implications a blank password for the keyring should sort your issue
20:14<Nines>What is reason 2?
20:14<weedeater64>ycr: apropos configure keyboard
20:14<gardo>try to kill network managers, firewall managers, etc. and configure the network and iptables manually again
20:15<ycr>weedeater64 sorry but i dont understan how to fix the problem
20:15<jk_yang>MrFrood, thats odd.. i have a older server that i just retired running debian 5 and it has never asked and i have a password set
20:15<Nines>gardo, how can I kill network managers or firewall managers? Where am I looking?
20:15<gardo>Nines, seems that wrong credentials
20:15<weedeater64>I don't know myself, only what I'd look for if I had same problem.

20:16<gardo>gnome, I think the name is "Network Manager"
20:16<gardo>or something like that
20:16<gardo>I usually disable all those managers after a fresh install

20:16-!-jrib [] has joined #debian
20:16<Nines>How do I disable it?
20:17<gardo>hum, it should be installed as a service
20:17<gardo>look in /etc/init.d/
20:17<ycr>ok i will continue reading i think is not a common problem there is not an answer en google or i cant find the proper one yet
20:17<gardo>$ /usr/sbin/service --status-all
20:17<gardo>that would help as well
20:18<gardo>look for 'net', 'networking', stuff like that
20:18<Nines>aye, network-manager is in there
20:18<weedeater64>ycr: man dpkg-reconfigure
20:18<Nines>With a [+]
20:18<gardo>networking is the standard set of networking scripts of Debian I think (I disable that also)

20:19<gardo>do it with
20:20<gardo>/etc/init.d/network-manager stop
20:20<gardo>or whatever
20:20<gardo>if you lose the connection and can't get it back again
20:20<gardo>start it again

20:21<gardo>then the problem is not network-manager

20:23<Nines>Wait I was typing that in Bash, when I typed it in a root shell it says it's stopped it
20:23<ycr>is a question because the options of CTRL are not there
20:23<gardo>ok, good to know : )

20:25-!-r4co0n [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
20:25<gardo>start network manager
20:25<gardo>if new rules appear from no-where
20:25<gardo>then you will know network-manager is setting them up
20:25<gardo>and you will have to look why it is doing so
20:25<gardo>(sadly I got no experience with network-manager; nor that I want either :)
20:26<weedeater64>wordnet vs dict, discuss.
20:27<gardo>but I'd bet that if it is setting up the rules is because something you did before, as AFAIK Debian/network-manager do not set rules by default
20:28<gardo>of course, all this stuff only applies if the problem is that rules are magically appearing after flushing them as you said :)

21:28<minimalseeker>while we are on the subject of mounting, why on earth is my /media showing a cdrom (with an arrow, that I assume is a shortcut), a cdrom0 and a cdrom1 - all empty
21:29<stderr_dk>cdrom0 and cdrom1 are your two CD (or DVD) drives. Both are directories.
21:29<minimalseeker>But I have only one CD/DVD drive
21:29<stderr_dk>cdrom is a link to (probably) cdrom0.
21:29<stderr_dk>Oh... Hmm...
21:30<stderr_dk>Good question then.
21:30<stderr_dk>Did you use to have two?
21:31<minimalseeker>well, during debian minimal install, when it started searching for cdroms and couldnt find it I mounted the usb (from which I was installing debian minimal) as a cdrom. Would that have made a difference?
21:31<stderr_dk>Can you do a grep cdrom /etc/fstab ?
21:32-!-mgehre [] has joined #debian
21:32<weedeater64>stderr_dk: about that, 'when it's safe', I've grown quite accustomed to automounting myself, recent upgrade from lenny to squeeze I'm running openbox now, usbmount and such seem less than satisfactory. Q. how important is it to umount an usb flashstick ?

21:34-!-ml|_ [] has joined #debian
21:34<stderr_dk>weedeater64: I would always do it. Both to be sure all the data has been written to the stick ("sync" could also be used for that) and to make sure nothing suddenly decides to write something to the stick while you're unplugging it.
21:35<stderr_dk>minimalseeker: The sdb one was probably where the USB "CD" was located during the install.

21:36<stderr_dk>I would remove the line with /dev/sdb from /etc/fstab and change the other to read /media/cdrom0.
21:36<stderr_dk>Then I would remove the /media/cdrom1 dir as it wouldn't be used anymore.
21:36<minimalseeker>weedeater64, I am running openbox as well. but I have not yet learnt to put any applications on the right click menu or even make it so that settings are permanent (for example I keep deleting the numerous desktops but they keep appearing on every new boot) do you have a favourite configuration/theme file for openbox that you are using currently?

22:40<Abbott>Hi guys
22:40<Abbott>is anyone there?
22:40<sebas891>I'm having an hard time to install squeeze with a raid1 setup. :(
22:41<sebas891>after the grub2 menu I get "Loading Linux 2.6.32-5-amd64 ...Loading initial ramdisk ... "
22:41-!-dspace [] has joined #debian
22:41<Abbott>hey i have a relatively simple question haha
22:41<Abbott>i am trying to edit another partition on my compuer
22:41<Abbott>i am booted into a knoppix live cd right now
22:41<Abbott>the drive is mounted, but its only read-only
22:41<sebas891>then its stays there... and hangs.
22:41<Abbott>is there some way i can mount it as read/write?
22:41<dpkg>from memory, raid is Redundant Array of Inexpensive Disks. See RAID{0-5}, <software raid>, <fakeraid>, <megaraid>, , <raid-resizing>
22:42<sebas891>thank mrfrood for the pointer,
22:42<zhuyajieabc>hello everyone
22:43<MrFrood>Abbott: man mount
22:43-!-tash [] has joined #debian
22:43-!-mvega [~mvega@] has left #debian []
22:43<sebas891>Abbott: try something like mount -n -o remount,rw /the-partition-here
22:43<weedeater64>apt-file list consolekit |grep session
22:43<weedeater64>consolekit: /usr/bin/ck-launch-session
22:45<sebas891>I remove the quiet option to grub2 parameter... no luck, I don't get more output from the kernel...
22:45<Abbott>so in terminal id type
22:45-!-Osiris_X [] has quit [Quit: Ex-Chat]
22:45<Abbott>mount -n -o remount,rw /media/sda3
22:46<sebas891>could it be because I'm trying with / in ext4 ...
22:46<Abbott>does that look right?
22:47<tash>any tibia player? I can't run it on my 64bits system, I already installed ia32-libs package. but I get this error:
22:47<Abbott>it says only root can do that
22:47<Abbott>so i type su
22:47<Abbott>or is that just for my phone haha
22:47<MrFrood>su -c 'command'
22:48<Abbott>what does the -c do?
22:48<Abbott>i just typed su
22:48<MrFrood>(with the quotes)
22:49<MrFrood>just runs the command and returns you back to your normaluser shell
22:49<Abbott>oh i gotcha
22:49<Abbott>ok but its saying it cant find /media/sd3
22:49<Abbott>but when i use the knoppix finder/explorer equivalent
22:49<Abbott>and click on my partition (named MAC)
22:50<Abbott>the path gives me that
22:50<Abbott>am i naming it incorrectly in using /media/sd3
22:50<MrFrood>su by it self is good when you have seeral coomands to run as root but for a single command su -c 'command' is better
22:51<weedeater64> su -c less /var/log/kern.log
22:51<weedeater64>Unknown id: /var/log/kern.log
22:52<MrFrood>weedeater64: with quotes
22:52<Abbott>is it bad to just hang out in su?
22:53<MrFrood>su -c less not need quotes but su -c 'less /var/log/kern.log' does
22:53<Abbott>and why cant it find my partition haha
22:57<weedeater64>Abbott: did you say something about ext3/4 ? I don't think you can read ext4 from ext3

23:02<Abbott>im freezing up brb
23:02<AndyJ>I'm hoping that a log may contain more info that will help me track down the problem...

23:14<minimalseeker>I don't have an application that can find files in my system - any recommendations?
23:15<MrFrood>minimalseeker: you talking abot a file manager?
23:15<weedeater64>MrFrood: locate
23:15<weedeater64>oops, meant minimalseeker locate
23:16*MrFrood giggles
23:16<minimalseeker>in command line?
23:16<MrFrood>minimalseeker: locate and find work in the command line
23:16<weedeater64>ya, first as root run # updatedb
23:17<weedeater64>then locate any_damn_file
23:17<MrFrood>but you nead to regulary buildrebuild a dbase for locate (see the man page)
23:17<minimalseeker>sudo updatedb sudo: updatedb: command not founf
23:17<minimalseeker>sudo updatedb sudo: updatedb: command not found
23:18<weedeater64>I think sudu id for buntites.
23:18<MrFrood>for more advanced stuff there is mc (midnight-commander) and if one muts GUI try xfe
23:18-!-Unmensch [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
23:19<weedeater64>mc, best file manager ever.
23:19<MrFrood>I just have have mc on my system
23:19<MrFrood>plus the command line tools
23:19<Abbott>wait when i run above command, will that only allow read/write within terminal?
23:20<minimalseeker>you mean, with mc there is no need for something like xfe?

23:26<minimalseeker>what's the T in TUI
23:27<Abbott>why in gods name can't i mount this drive as rw
23:28<MrFrood>because you are using knoppix..? :P
23:28<minimalseeker>I think I will fall in that category. I have been spoilt by having windows search everything for me and then double click on stuff in the search results
23:29<MrFrood>try both mc & xfe - once you have manged to ween yourself off xfe you can uninstall/purge it ;)
23:30-!-well [~well@] has joined #debian
23:30<Abbott>is knoppix a bad distro haha
23:30<Abbott>i just downloaded the first linux live cd that came up in google :P
23:30<sney>knoppix is a rescue disk
23:31<Abbott>well im generally rescuing right now
23:31<sney>but you should be able to mount a filesystem rw, maybe it needs a fsck
23:31<Abbott>hackintosh wont boot cause my is written up wrong
23:31<MrFrood>I prefrer GRML for rescue situations
23:31<Abbott>so i just need to delete the file but its ro
23:31<sney>grml is great, but Abbott you should really go to and ask in #knoppix, because #debian does not support Knoppix.
23:32<Abbott>im very sorry haha
23:32<Abbott>i didnt realize i was in the wrong channel O.o
23:32<Abbott>thanks for the help though guys
23:32-!-Abbott [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
23:32<sney>not his fault the Knoppix devs didn't see fit to change the defaults
23:32<Tiff>Who would have thought a channel called #debian wouldn't be a good place to discuss Knoppix.
23:33<sney>they don't look at that, they just fire up xchat and push connect without looking
23:33-!-inix1 [] has joined #debian
23:33<Tiff>That's a OSI Layer 8 issue. :P
23:33<sney>because if the knoppix (and ubuntu, and backtrack, etc etc) developers had any sense, they'd make the default channel their own distro's
23:34<sney>it is layer 8, indeed, but more than one party
