00:01<wicdtrouble>ml|, I see... so its the non-free status that is preventing debian from including this driver...
00:02<Tiff>The driver does not exist in the upstream kernel.
00:02<Tiff>It was even filed upstream too.

00:05-!-pipeep [] has joined #debian
00:05<ml|>if the driver was included in vanilla kernel, it should reside in firmware-realtek package _if_ it is non-free or in future debian kernels _if_ it is or becomes a free driver
00:06<wicdtrouble>Tiff, ml| ah... I see.
00:07<Tiff>Ubuntu's packagers may well have thrown something together to support it, I've no idea about their project.
00:07<wicdtrouble>I guess now I need build essentials to compile that driver from realtek
00:08<ml|>most likely yes
00:08<ml|>have fun/good luck :)
00:08<Tiff>You'll be needing the headers for the stock kernel in stable also.
00:10<wicdtrouble>I read about the debian-women project on today on the debian women channel. Apparently, they are going to be helping all people (regardless of whether they are female or not to help compile stuff). The irony of it will be if I seek help in that channel today, it will be for compiling a non-free package...
00:10<wicdtrouble>Tiff, what is that?
00:10<wicdtrouble>what is the name of that stock kernel header package thing?
00:12-!-BrianR [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:12<wicdtrouble>I am getting this error compiling: make: *** /lib/modules/2.6.32-5-amd64/build: No such file or directory. Stop.
00:13<wicdtrouble>Is that what you meant when you said I needed "the headers for the stock kernel"
00:13<Tiff>This would indeed reflect that.
00:13-!-Vlam [] has joined #debian
00:14<wicdtrouble>Tiff, so what do I do? How do I get this header?
00:14<ml|>wicdtrouble: install linux-headers-2.6-amd64
00:14<wicdtrouble>thanks ml|

00:44<mekt>How can a file be transferred between 2 hosts, where the transfer is initiated from the sender and the destination may have its IP address changed by the ISP?
00:44<wicdtrouble> No rule to make target `/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.32-5-common/scripts/basic/Makefile'. Stop. I think this is the first line indicating trouble
00:44<wicdtrouble>How can I fix this?
00:46<sney>mekt: how about using dynamic dns to keep track of the recipient
00:46<sney>wicdtrouble: with both the arch headers and common headers installed along with build-essential, that should work, so maybe contact the person who hosts the driver
00:46-!-kurohige [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:47<mekt>sney: for that to work, there would need to be some hook to reinitiate dynamic DNS update. Maybe (just maybe) pppd has a hook for that? I'm not sure. And then the recipient would need to tell the sender to reget his IP address from DNS.

00:47-!-arw [~arw@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:48<sney>usually they just do it with cron
00:48<wicdtrouble>what are arch headers, sney
00:48<wicdtrouble>I am not sure I installed them
00:48<sney>wicdtrouble: the headers for your cpu architecture. i.e. 686, amd64, powerpc, etc
00:49<wicdtrouble>how can I check if they are installed?
00:49<mekt>wicdtrouble: if this error means that file is missing, "apt-file find /usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.32-5-common/scripts/basic/Makefile"
00:50<mekt>will tell you which package provides it.
00:50<sney>wicdtrouble: aptitude search linux-headers, then look for the ones with a little "i"
00:50<kop>wicdtrouble: (or "aptitude search '~ilinux-headers'")
00:51<sney>fancy pants
00:51<kop>sney: Check out my use of single quotes!
00:52<sney>one of my keyboards can't reliably make a ~ so I tend to forget those tricks
00:54-!-Judas_PhD [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:56<wicdtrouble>thank you mekt, sney, kop - Just ran the command kop gave and there were 3 headers I tried to install all three and all three are already on my system in their newest version...
00:56<kop>wicdtrouble: The command lists what's installed. If you want everything leave off the ~i.
00:58<kop>wicdtrouble: (And because you no longer have a ~ you can also leave off the sexy single quotes.)

01:12<wicdtrouble>kop, I am trying to build/or compile the source of this realtek wireless driver: and I have been getting this errror: I am trying to get rid of this error. sney suggested that it may be due to some more missing headers (arch headers) - hence the search f
01:12<wicdtrouble>or what headers are not installed on my system
01:12<mzhang>kop: I could boot from external hdd, but it is a pain; I just wonder if there is an easier way.
01:13<mzhang>I did this before so I knew there was, but there was tweak to it...

01:15<kop>mzhang: You probably want to read the grub info pages (info grub) and install grub onto your hard drive. (You could backup the first few sectors before doing so. Say 4096 bytes.) I forget what you need to do to auto detect and have the menu setup for you. It might be easiest to use your install cd and choose rescue mode and use that to install grub.
01:16<kop>Ah well, he's gone.

01:37<k1lumin4t1>could anybody explain to me why the Gnome menu panel addon tha gathers both the Apps, System (Preferences and Administration) and Places is so slow when openning for first time during a session?

01:42<jimpop>k1lumin4t1: disk usage. It has to find and open all the icons associated with each menu item
01:43<k1lumin4t1>jimpop, hmm... jimpop but why it doesn't happen when the three menus are separate?

01:45-!-fmario [] has joined #debian
01:46<k1lumin4t1>dennisthetiger, dunno, that's what I'm asking actually. It's always the first time during a session that this happens
01:46<dennisthetiger>Question here. Installing stable, and found that grub is not liking 'root' - says it doesn't recognize the file system. To note, I typically format /boot as ext2 and / as ext3. What am I missing?
01:46<k1lumin4t1>dennisthetiger, on subsequent ocassions it loads fine
01:47<dennisthetiger>k1lumin4t1: intersting. I'd think it would be more efficient to load it on the virgin login, and have apt just notify something that there's new stuff or something.

01:49<dennisthetiger>k1lumin4t1: I think so. Its kind of late, despite the coffee. =)
01:50<dennisthetiger>k1lumin4t1: You're referring to the standard apps menu, sort of equiv to the Windoze start menu, in Gnome right?
01:50-!-nadir [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
01:50<k1lumin4t1>dennisthetiger, hehe, I'm talking about gnome alternative menu panel addon
01:50<k1lumin4t1>dennisthetiger, yes, that one
01:50<k1lumin4t1>dennisthetiger, the one alternative to the default one
01:50<dennisthetiger>k1lumin4t1: OK, maybe we're *almost* talking about the same thing =) Carry on.
01:51<k1lumin4t1>dennisthetiger, but then you mentioned something about apt
01:51<k1lumin4t1>dennisthetiger, which mislead me
01:51-!-vance [~vance@] has joined #debian
01:52<dennisthetiger>k1lumin4t1: Oh. Not quite - was referring to jimpop's note about why it does this - it sounds like it's basically sucking in its state on login, based on what he's saying.

05:47<ottoshmidt>syn-ack, what is channel?
05:47<syn-ack>Stable, Beta, Dev, etc
05:48<syn-ack>like use the "Beta" branch so it's not quite as unstable as the Dev Channel since it's not got all the latest code changes integrated.

06:13<syn-ack>engywucz, it takes a bit of hacking and pinning but it can be quite easily. Just a royal PITA to do the initial config.
06:14<ottoshmidt>there is nothing to hack about, just add sid repos to sources.list and install those packages you need to be up to date
06:14<Black_Prince>PITA means a pie in my language. So I shout myself laughing when I saw that post
06:14<ottoshmidt>it will eventually end up in mixed
06:15<syn-ack>ottoshmidt, I used to pin everything I needed out of sid to ensure it didn't downgrade it's self
06:15<ottoshmidt>Black_Prince, royal PITA is meant to be tasty I guess :P
06:15<Black_Prince>Yeah, probbably :P
06:15<babilen>ottoshmidt: If you do just that you'll end up tracking sid. If you actually want to track wheezy, but only install selected packages from sid you need to make that explicit via pinning or by setting the default release.
06:16-!-masteryami [~masteryam@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
06:16<babilen>syn-ack: Downgrades will only happen is a package is pinned to a priority >= 1001 :)
06:16<ottoshmidt>babilen, I change that from preferences in synaptic
06:16<babilen>s/is a/if a
06:16<ottoshmidt>so currently it's set on unstable
06:16-!-MAXmark [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
06:16<syn-ack>Then you're tracking Sid, not wheezy
06:17<ottoshmidt>but I usually upgrade those packages that I am aware of, leaving the rest as it is.. without unneeded experimenting
06:17<ottoshmidt>that's what I like about debian, compared to ubuntu.. where it is meant to upgrade the whole system
06:17<babilen>ottoshmidt: Yeah, synaptic ignores the default release set in /etc/apt/apt.conf and you have to make it explicit in synaptic's configuration too.
06:17<syn-ack>I haven't run a vanilla Debian system in years. heh.
06:18<ottoshmidt>me too

09:55<ComradeHaz`>lsmod gives unknwn command, which surprises me
09:55<ComradeHaz`>no, nevyn, this a fresh instll
09:56<cg_>ComradeHaz`, you got a stable debian installation?
09:56<cg_>use the pastebin to avoid clutter please...
09:56<cg_>read first about grub2
09:56<ComradeHaz`>I tried that first, stable x64, but when that failed like this I thought I'd try unstable, as I have another machine running unstable on which it boots successfully..

09:57<cg_>there you go...
09:57<Parsifal>ComradeHaz`: Looking in /usr/lib/grub/i386-pc/, there is indeed a module called lvm
09:57<cg_>unstable means trouble... on my amd64 I use stable...
09:57<akerl>It's like people don't actually consider what "unstable" means before slapping that install button
09:57<ComradeHaz`>cg, read what I said again
09:57<ComradeHaz`>akerl: you too.
09:58<cg_>did you read the grub2 wikis etc?
09:58<akerl>ComradeHaz`: Except now we're not troubleshooting stable...
09:58<akerl>You wiped that and are now asking us to troubleshoot unstable.
09:58<ComradeHaz`>Fair enough, akerl, I will reinstall stable.
09:58<cg_>I WON'T troubleshoot unstable, it has no meaning, squeeze is new...
09:59<cg_>now... you need to read about grub2 and LVM first, it's easy but it takes some reading man
09:59<nevyn>ComradeHaz`: so it's failing to find the second stage grub this would indicate to me that it can't read the grubroot.
10:00<nevyn>ComradeHaz`: I put /boot on a seperate partition for this reason.
10:00<ComradeHaz`>Yeah, well, I believe there's an optional package for grub that contains the appropriate stuff that probably doesn't get installed by trhe installer

16:27<Nemorandomnumbers>Hello, is there anyone here with experience in scripting? I have what I think is a simple question, but I've had trouble searching for it.
16:28<babilen>plenty of people
16:28<Nemorandomnumbers>Let's say I wanted to have a script on ComputerA run "uname -a" on ComputerB, what would my script look like?

16:29<Tiff>it would look like it was using any numerous means of remotely connecting to computerb and executing that command.
16:29<Nemorandomnumbers>And if I wanted to run another command after that, say "Echo test" what would that look like?
16:30<Nemorandomnumbers>By "What would that look like" I mean what would the command be?
16:30-!-Newa [] has joined #debian
16:30<Tiff>Might be an idea to try showing us what you've attempted thus far.
16:30<Tiff>or explainin git
16:31<Tiff>atm you're not rly asking for help here, you're just asking for someone to write you a script.
16:31<sney>I think it would look like homework
16:31<Nemorandomnumbers>What I actually want to do is create a script on my Android phone that will restart my computer
16:31<Nemorandomnumbers>I have a computer that runs Samba, which I use to stream to my Wii
16:32<Nemorandomnumbers>But sometimes I run into issues, and I'd like to be able to restart it when I do
16:32<cahoot>ssh from the phone
16:32<Nemorandomnumbers>I know how to do it manually through ssh
16:32<Nemorandomnumbers>I don't know how to have a script ssh in, run a command, then disconnect
16:33<Nemorandomnumbers>Though the disconnect isn't exactly important, since I'd be restarting the computer anyway
16:33<zerot>then you can run single commands through ssh, write a script to do that!
16:33<Nemorandomnumbers>I don't know how to write a script that passes commands to an open ssh connection

16:34-!-lameplaya [] has left #debian []
16:34<Nemorandomnumbers>And unfortunately, there are too many similarly worded problems people try to solve, so it's difficult to google this particular one
16:34<babilen>why don't you just execute a script on the remote host through ssh?
16:35-!-knoppix_ [] has joined #debian
16:35<Nemorandomnumbers>I want it to just be a local script that runs the commands
16:35-!-knoppix_ [] has quit []
16:35<Nemorandomnumbers>It's somewhat of a hassle to open a text prompt on my phone and run commands
16:35<jhutchins_lt>Nemorandomnumbers: You can do ssh <host> command. You can do this for multiple commands, or you can plant the script on the remote box and execute it via ssh,
16:36<zerot>write in a script exactly what you would call. There are numerous examples of regurlar bash scripts.
16:36<zerot>then call ssh <user>@<host> <command>
16:36<Nemorandomnumbers>Perfect, that's exactly what I wanted
16:36<zerot>just be sure that the command is in the user bin-dir or in the /usr/bin
16:36<Nemorandomnumbers>could I not provide the full path to the command?
16:37<jhutchins_lt>For instance, I can take a list of workstation IPs and do for foo in list; do ssh $foo /etc/apache2/restart;done
16:37<zerot>just make it executable for the user which will log on.
16:37<Nemorandomnumbers>Thank you so much, I'll test that in a bit
16:38<Nemorandomnumbers>Unfortunately I'm using the computer I want to reboot for irc, haha
16:38<zerot>you are welcome

18:34<diego> - proprietary ati driver tutorial for debian too
18:34<diego>hey, anyone knows to create a "dead key" ... I have an old laptop and one of the keys of the keyboard is broken (the letter Q)
18:34<MadMuppet006>diego:I installed the driver ok the problem is the desktop is very slow ..
18:35<diego>and it would be cool that " + a for instance gives Q :)
18:35<MadMuppet006>so Im looking for a problem just not sure what the problem is
18:35<diego>For 3D acceleration, fglrx requires an associated kernel module, its compilation can be automated via module-assistant or DKMS.
18:35<diego>maybe you install the driver without that
18:36<MadMuppet006>I installed the proprietory driver from ati
18:36<diego>btw, are you using compiz ?
18:36<diego>or you use just metacity (2D)

18:37<MadMuppet006>I dont know what compiz is so unless its part of squeeze base install I do not have it

18:39<diego>I was saying the opposite ... remove compiz if running lol

18:40<diego>well, at least we know that 3d was not the problem then

19:23<zeropiel>is it natural to have loads of entries in /etc/modprobe.d/ that blacklist sound drivers?
19:24<diederik>I have some files there, but not loads
19:24<diederik>when you start alsamixer, what does it show now for card/chip?
19:25<zeropiel>one file blacklists sound, dmasound_core, dmasound_pmac and soundcard
19:25<zeropiel>same as before
19:25<diederik>then it looks like the force-reload didn't work or sth.
19:25<diederik>Do you see a list when pressing F6 (in alsamixer)?
19:26<sney>if lspci only shows one audio device then something else is weird
