01:23<owen1>i want to setup a file server and access the files from a browser. what package/solution should I use?
01:25<Latino>I use vsftpd *shurgs*
01:25<sney>or apache and something like horde

01:35<owen1>Latino:(i did some gooogling) vsftpd + Webmin for the browser access?
01:36<Latino>web browser, or file browser?
01:37<Latino>I can ftp it with a file browser
01:37<owen1>Latino: i want to be able to open a web browser when i am not home
01:37-!-as [] has joined #debian
01:37<Latino>( I do have apache, tho)
01:37-!-as is now known as gertt
01:37<owen1>Latino: and download the files from my server
01:37<supaplex>ssh/sftp ftw (wfm)
01:37<Latino>you should use vstfpd then use filezilla
01:38<Latino>still, filazilla for ssh
01:38<Latino>!google filezilla portable
01:38<owen1>Latino: i want a non-technical user with browser to download a few files from my server. just making sure I was clear.
01:39-!-scrp3l_ [~scrp3l__@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
01:40<Latino>then you don't need a ftp server. you need a web server
01:40<gertt>hi people I have a very basic question maybe smb would be willing to help. I want to connect my debian box (squeeze) to the Internet. I know the necessary numbers like addresses of the DNS servers etc. what should I do?
01:41<Latino>it would be easier for the user to use http:// than ftp://
01:42<supaplex>http is more firewall friendly (users behind NAT)
01:42<Latino>gertt wire[d|less]?
01:43<gertt>wired adsl
01:43<Latino>you're using a router>
01:44<gertt>i use a modem with 4 eth plugs
01:45-!-gluesniffmonkey [] has joined #debian
01:45<Latino>auto eth0
01:45<Latino> iface eth0 inet dhcp
01:45<owen1>Latino: ok. i'll look for a webserver. but a webserver is not enought. i need a simple app that runs on it and let my user download a few files i put in a dir.
01:45<Latino>in /etc/network/interfaces should do it
01:46<gluesniffmonkey>Problem with gnome. gnome panels appear to be off screen
01:47<gluesniffmonkey>I am using an acer aspire zg1
01:48<gluesniffmonkey>aa1 zg5 I mean.
01:48<Latino>owen1, I'm just trying to help and that's how *I* would do it with the knowldge I have. I'm sure someone else might offer a way better solution
01:48-!-krashed [krashed@] has joined #debian
01:48<owen1>Latino: got it. thanks a lot
01:49-!-krashed [krashed@] has left #debian []
01:50<gluesniffmonkey>The background is also 'over sized'.
01:50<gertt><Latino> I know now how to make the dhcp work. My question is a bit different. I do not want to use a protocol which seeks for available connections. Assume I know the numbers. what do I do then? (iface is not known to my box)
01:51<gertt>oh it seems the web page giiives the answer
01:51<gertt>1 sec
01:52<owen1>Latino: this works: python -c 'import SimpleHTTPServer;SimpleHTTPServer.test()'
01:52-!-rsmith_ [] has joined #debian
01:52<owen1>1 liner webserver
01:52<Latino>gernot, then yeah

02:20<fborges22>hello :)
02:21<zeref>early in the morning
02:21-!-rsmith_ [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
02:21<fborges22>i wake up too early

02:23-!-neriko [~neriko@] has quit []
02:23<zeref>go to sleep :-)
02:23<omg_onoez>i have to fsck mounted ext4, is it a bad and dangerous idea?
02:23<fborges22>i think that is a good ideia
02:23<fborges22>well i am going
02:24-!-fborges22 [~fborges22@] has quit []
02:24<omg_onoez>but it says that if i continue i "...***WILL***
02:24<omg_onoez>cause ***SEVERE*** filesystem damage."
02:25<omg_onoez>and i've shit my pants and decided to ask you first =)
02:25<zeref>if your / is on the ext4 then yes
02:26-!-gertt [] has joined #debian
02:26<omg_onoez>talking of /home
02:26<omg_onoez>but there is no way i can umount it
02:27<omg_onoez>it is truecrypt partition mounted on boot
02:27<zeref>you dont need to run fsck
02:27<zeref>unless system crash or powerloss
02:27-!-freex_ [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
02:27<zeref>but then then its auto run when you boot up
02:27<omg_onoez>it happened several times
02:27<omg_onoez>and i can't start it on boot
02:28-!-catsup [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
02:28-!-catsup [] has joined #debian
02:29<omg_onoez>its encrypted and system won't determine it
02:29<omg_onoez>i mean i need to run it only while it is mounted
02:31<zeref>i think is your using trucrypt
02:31<zeref>you have to boot from liveCD
02:31<zeref>then fsck the disk from there
02:32<omg_onoez>encrypted partition doesn't contain the proper partition table
02:32-!-gertt [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
02:32<omg_onoez>until it is mounted
02:32<omg_onoez>i still have to mount it in order to make it visible as a correct ext4 partition for system
02:33<zeref>k, when you mount it, find out where its located
02:33-!-anarchy [] has joined #debian
02:33<omg_onoez>i know it )
02:34<omg_onoez>but its kinda virtual stuff
02:34<zeref>thats fine
02:34<anarchy>hey, I'm super new to operating a terminal, can someone point me to a good tutorial for basic commands and what not?
02:34<zeref>when you run off liveCD, fsck /dev/mapper/truecrypt
02:34-!-dokuhebi [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
02:34<omg_onoez>after i will umount it /dev/mapper/truecrypt1 will disappear lol
02:35<zeref>nah, fsck will finds it
02:36<omg_onoez>physically it is located at /dev/sda3
02:36<omg_onoez>lol it won't find it
02:36<omg_onoez>but /dev/sda3 doesn't contain the proper partition table
02:36-!-freex_ [] has joined #debian
02:37<omg_onoez>so i can make it visible for system only after mounting it with truecrypt
02:37<omg_onoez>and how do u think, where does it lead?
02:37<anarchy>thanks zeref!!
02:38<omg_onoez>i mean /dev/mapper/truecrypt1 ? =)

05:12<EmleyMoor>If I intend to dd something to a USB stick, does it need to be "cleared" first?
05:14<cahoot>doesn't dd act as windows, i e without any concern to present inhabitants?
05:14<Bushmills>what kind of concern?
05:15<EmleyMoor>I thought it did... so when a site says "an empty USB stick", it really means one without wanted content?
05:15<EmleyMoor>(actually, the contents of the stick in question are the earlier version of the same thing)
05:16<Bushmills>dd doesn't know about stick "empty" or not. that judgement requires knowledge of structure of data on a device, i.e. a knowledge of the file system used.
05:17*EmleyMoor is experimenting with ext4 conversion and wondering if grml can be used to do it - hence updating a stick

09:13<PeterNL>abrotman: (on 64bit?)
09:13<abrotman>PeterNL: not working
09:13<abrotman>jonah79: yes
09:13<PeterNL>abrotman: at all?
09:13<abrotman>!release history
09:13<dpkg>Debian releases are named after characters from the movie "Toy Story". Buzz(1.1; 1996-03-14), Rex(1.2; 1996-10-28), Bo(1.3; 1997-05-01), Hamm(2.0; 1998-07-24), Slink(2.1; 1999-03-09), Potato(2.2; 2000-08-15), Woody(3.0; 2002-07-19), Sarge(3.1; 2005-06-06), Etch(4.0; 2007-04-08), Lenny(5.0; 2009-02-14), Squeeze(6.0; 2011-02-06). The next release will be Wheezy.
09:13<abrotman>PeterNL: from what the guy said ...

09:14<jonah79>So before 1996, the distro was just titled Debian?
09:14<PeterNL>No, not unstable, testing ;)
09:14<abrotman>jonah79: no, there were no releases
09:14<abrotman>PeterNL: same issues
09:14<abrotman>PeterNL: what makes you think testing is some magically stable setup ... that we just call testing?

09:15-!-Sanitoeter [~sani@] has joined #debian
09:15<PeterNL>I tought testing was actually kinda stable, like most beta versions of other projects
09:15<jonah79>From my recent Debian reading, isn't testing used in terms of preparation for the next stable release?
09:15<abrotman>PeterNL: it gets more stable as the next release nears .. but currently, it's not really much better than unstable, and worse in some cases
09:15<abrotman>jonah79: yes
09:15-!-xakz [] has joined #debian
09:15-!-medicom [] has joined #debian
09:16<PeterNL>Oh, so if I want a beta-ish release I shoudl wait for testing to become more near-stable?
09:16<abrotman>PeterNL: right .. currently there isn't a huge amount of separation between squeeze/stable and wheezy/testing .. this will grow in the next few months, then it will begin to stabilize
09:17-!-thierry [~thierry@] has quit [Quit: thierry]
09:17-!-babilen [] has joined #debian
09:17<PeterNL>How easy is it to upgrade from stable to testing (or from oldstable to stable)?
09:17<PeterNL>(e.g. compared to ubuntu, wich suxks at that)
09:18<jonah79>Are you a recent Debian user PeterNL?
09:18<abrotman>pretty easy .. i had a machine at my office that went from sarge to lenny without reinstall
09:18<babilen>PeterNL: The upgrade from oldstable to stable is detailed in the release notes. (/msg dpkg release notes) -- An upgrade to testing depends on the state testing is currently in and how different it is from stable.
09:18<abrotman>and it couldn't go to squeeze because they dropped that architecture :)
09:18-!-patrickh [] has left #debian []
09:18<Bushmills>PeterNL: would be easier to answer if you told us first how much more difficult ubuntu update, compared to debian, is
09:18<PeterNL>I switched from ubuntu to debian squeeze one year ago because I got fed up with ubuntu upgrades always breaking something
09:18<PeterNL>and I don't want to do a reinstall every six months
09:19<PeterNL>that is on my desktop. My laptop is still tunning ubuntu 9.10, wich is old, but I decided I don't want to do ubuntu upgrades anymore.
09:19-!-ork0 [~orko@] has joined #debian
09:19<zeref>PeterNL, why not use ubuntu LTS?
09:20<Bushmills>usually, upgrade is a snap. sometimes it isn't, but that's commonly for policy reasons
09:20<zeref>thats what i used to use
09:20<PeterNL>because I want new versions of most packages
09:20<chaos>you don't have reinstall ever if you figure out what you broke and fix it
09:20<PeterNL>e.g. I want firefox5 to be in the repos ;)
09:20<jonah79>Amen!!! When I first started using Linux in 2007, I used to get so excited about the 6 month updates but then I got so fed up with it.
09:20<PeterNL>(even while I'm an opera user)
09:20<chaos>i want firefox to be dead
09:20-!-Black_Prince [~Prince@] has joined #debian
09:20<chaos>yes, go opera!
09:20<babilen>PeterNL: For squeeze take a look at please (you want the release suite)
09:20<jonah79>Firefox 5 is easy enough to run on Squeeze.
09:20<Bushmills>for running latest stuff, run it in a VM
09:21<PeterNL>Heheh, but this isn't about browsers. it's also about all other packages
09:21<Bushmills>keep the host system nicely stable. break the guest.
09:21-!-MrToOL [~MrToOL@] has joined #debian
09:21<PeterNL>And I don't have the disk space and memory to run VM's all day
09:21-!-thierry [~thierry@] has joined #debian
09:21<Bushmills>then don't bother
09:22<bernat>you want the latest now and you want it stable, haha
09:22<PeterNL>(I'll probably install a windows 2000 guest for an old game wich is unstable in XP and newer)
09:22<Bushmills>not enough space - but for whole windows for a *game* you do.
09:22<bernat>problems with ubuntu upgrades usually have to do with user customizations and installation from non-official repositories
09:22<Bushmills>oh well, that's priorities
09:23<PeterNL>The game requires 60mb, and windows 2000 (not win7 or something) like 2gb
09:23<bernat>you can have the same problems and more with debian testing
09:23-!-shiloh25 [] has joined #debian
09:23<valdyn>somehow i doubt that "upgrades are hard" is a good reason to use debian over ubuntu
09:23<jonah79>I have testing on my laptop because It will not cause me problems if there is a breakage
09:24-!-mode/#debian [+l 485] by debhelper
09:24<bernat>valdyn: I think not
09:24<PeterNL>It doesn't have to be rock solid, as long as it's usable. I don't have problems with something being slighly broken for a while, as long as it's mostly-working for most-of-the-time
09:24<PeterNL>valdyn: upgrades on ubuntu aren't "hard" but they are annoying because they usually break something
09:24<valdyn>PeterNL: upgrades *always* break something
09:25<PeterNL>like grapics drivers
09:25<valdyn>PeterNL: thats the nature of things, has always been like that, will always be like that
09:25<bernat>the same problems you had with Ubuntu will hit you with testing but harder since is more changing and has some grave bugs from time to time
09:25<PeterNL>that's the main reason for me to switch to debian
09:25<valdyn>PeterNL: invalid reason
09:25<PeterNL>so what distro should I be using?
09:25<valdyn>PeterNL: none, theres none for you
09:26<PeterNL>A debian-based rolling-release distreo would be nice, but I haven't heard of one yet
09:26<bernat>you should learn about upgrades
09:26<valdyn>PeterNL: rolling does not equal "upgrades dont break stuff"
09:26<bernat>there's no magic than can upgrade your system no matter what you've done to it
09:26<jonah79>11.04 has problems with my graphics card. Speaking of Firefox 5, a simple download from Mozilla will allow you to use Firefox 5

09:26<bernat>jonah79: ubuntu 11.04 already has Firefox 5, doesn't it?
09:27<PeterNL>firefox5 was just an example. I want recent, stable versions of most (or all) packages
09:27<jonah79>Unstable is classed as a rolling distro isn't it? Well LMDE labels itself as a rolling distro.

09:28<nate_>If I'm not mistakin' Chrome is going to be the default browser in 11.10. Might as well get used to that.
09:28<valdyn>PeterNL: theres a few things about software that will not ever change, but youre asking for that
09:28<Bushmills>debian considers firefox 5 "unstable", and that's only shortly ago that it was "experimental"
09:28<PeterNL>on june 20, I'd call firefox 4 recent
09:28<PeterNL>But not today
09:28-!-nike [~sacredcha@] has joined #debian

09:29<nate_>It isn't? Oh crap.
09:29<bernat>Bushmills: it's not that debian considers X unstable, it's the package that is in unstable
09:29<nate_>Why is Debian default now?
09:29-!-nate_ [] has left #debian []
09:29<PeterNL>Damn, I was just asking if I should use testing or stable, and now this?
09:29<Bushmills>PeterNL: you may want to try ubuntu. it is rolling release, and comes with upgraded, more frequently than debian
09:29-!-thierry [~thierry@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
09:29<zeref>PeterNL: stick with stable
09:29<bernat>PeterNL: don't go for testing or unstable if you want stability
09:30<PeterNL>wait a second, what does "rolling release" mean exactly?
09:30<PeterNL>Because I might have it wrong ;)
09:30<abrotman>PeterNL: debian doesn't hvae a true rolling release
09:30<valdyn>PeterNL: constant breakage or constant upgrades, depending on where you are standing at
09:31<jonah79>Rolling release means you get all the latest packages without having to go through an update cycle
09:31<abrotman>PeterNL: new software comes in constantly .. this can be good/bad .. but the idea is that it's stable enough for every day usage .. in reality, usually not so much
09:31<Bushmills>it means, from debian p.o.v., that the distro can never be tested well enough to ever become stable
09:31<abrotman>jonah79: except you update every day? ;)
09:31<jonah79>every day
09:31<PeterNL>I want the latest stable versions, regardless of how stable it exactly is. If the developer of package X says it's stable, then i want it.
09:31<PeterNL>Maybe like Arch
09:32<Bushmills>yes, and you want the blackest white there is
09:32<abrotman>PeterNL: then go use that .. this is still a Debian support channel
09:32<PeterNL>But I still prefer a debian-based distro like that
09:32<PeterNL>like arch with apt-get ;)

09:32<jonah79>I would recommend a distro that you may fancy trying but I don't know if I can mention it here. It's a Mint take on Debian which is a rolling release but can I mention it? lol

09:33<PeterNL>in the case of firefox, I'd like firefox5 to appear in the repo on june 21 (or 22)
09:33<abrotman>PeterNL: generally it would .. but just because DevA says packageC is stable, does'nt mean it will work with DevB's fancy new packageD
09:34<abrotman>PeterNL: good luck!
09:34<dpkg>Shiny New Shit Syndrome is a serious disorder, which usually breaks out into an epidemic every time something new is released. If you have SNS, ask me about <backports> and <ssb>; these are better options than upgrading to <testing> because it is a <moving target>.
09:34<PeterNL>abrotman: that is still when I want to try. You know the worlsd most-used OS works that way?
09:34<abrotman>PeterNL: Windows XP?
09:34-!-aroundthfur [~aroundthf@] has quit [Read error: Operation timed out]
09:34<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>.
09:34<PeterNL>abrotman: any version of windows
09:35<Bushmills>PeterNL: there may be some discrepency what you call "stable" and what debian considers "stable"
09:35<Bushmills>between ...
09:35<PeterNL>I call it stable when the mozilla devs remove the "beta" label
09:35<valdyn>PeterNL: your idea of windows xp wouldnt even qualify to be a distro of any kind
09:35<bernat>PeterNL: again, if you want to try the newest and still have a stable system you should use VMs
09:35<abrotman>PeterNL: but, that's not how it works .. people don't upgrade because "my machine works fine the way it is, i don't need to upgrade anything" .. and then they get trojaned
09:35<jonah79>And that's why Firefox on stable is called Iceweazel
09:35<Bushmills>but, as we are used to think in debians terms of "stable", why not try to adept to that idea, rather to introduce your own intead?
09:36<PeterNL>abrotman: the wibdows users I know *do* upgrade, and they all use firefox 5 (if they are ff users)
09:36<valdyn>PeterNL: you can do the windows way
09:36<PeterNL>and non of them has problems with firefox
09:36<Bushmills>grrr... adapt ... instead ... than to ...
09:36<valdyn>PeterNL: but that does not involve a distro
09:36<bernat>PeterNL: you can download firefox as a Windows user would do and run it in your home
09:36-!-lamah [~lamah@] has joined #debian
09:37<jonah79>When Debian calls something stable, it points to a long process of bug squashing that the debian devs undergo
09:37<lamah>how can i enter WPA2-PSK to wlan0 in network setup 'network configuration' in Debian 6.0.2 DVD installer under expert mode ?
09:37<Bushmills>PeterNL: "stable" in debian terminology is "stable distribution, stable released", not "one stable program"
09:37<abrotman>!meaning of stable
09:37<dpkg>"Stable" is a release, and it does not change much at all over its lifetime. There is a known set of bugs, and it gets security updates, and point releases. Some will consider this as 'stale', while others consider this one of the great advantages of Debian.
09:37<PeterNL>I could but I want to have those things in a repo, so I can have the latest "stable" version of everything (firefox, the kernel, X, grapics drivers, whetever
09:37<Bushmills>release ...
09:37<lamah>it is only WEP I see by default

09:38<Bushmills>latest stable of everything is stable. squeeze right now.
09:38<PeterNL>Bushmills: does squeeze have ff5 in the repos?
09:39<bernat>,versions iceweasel
09:39<judd>Package iceweasel on i386 -- lenny: 3.0.6-3; lenny-security: 3.0.6-3; squeeze: 3.5.16-6; lenny-backports: 3.5.16-8~bpo50+1; squeeze-proposed-updates: 3.5.16-8; squeeze-security: 3.5.16-8; wheezy: 3.5.19-3; sid: 5.0-3; experimental: 6.0~b2-1
09:39<PeterNL>so that's not the latest stable of everything
09:39<babilen>PeterNL: I mentioned it earlier -- take a look at (you want the release suite)
09:39<jonah79>just download the zip file from Mozilla, extract it to your harddisc and run it
09:39<PeterNL>and ff5 is just *one* example
09:39<babilen>jonah79: No
09:39<jonah79>it really is quite simple
09:39<Bushmills>yes. it is. debian stable was frozen before ff5 was even out
09:39<zeref>PeterNL, latest and stable are not really related
09:39<babilen>!tell PeterNL -about stable
09:39<Bushmills>one can't put programs into a release which even don't exist
09:40<PeterNL>So debian testing doesn't even have ff4? lol
09:40<babilen>PeterNL: "stable" has a very specific meaning within Debian that should not be confused with "rock-solid and bug-free". We very much try to ensure those two, but that is not what stable means.
09:40<PeterNL>I'm talking about "mozilla-stable" and not "debian-stable"
09:41<Bushmills>but debian stable doesn't have "mozilla stable" whatever that might be
09:41<PeterNL>(in this example)
09:41<PeterNL>testing doesn't have that either (as I see now)
09:41<babilen>PeterNL: It has already been pointed out to you that there are ways to install IW 5.0 on squeeze from a repo that is maintained by Debian's mozilla team
09:41<jonah79>I think you must understand though Peter, each distro has a philosophy
09:42<Bushmills>PeterNL: if you have a problem with that, don't use debian
09:42<Bushmills>use ubuntu, for example. they have shiny new stuff
09:42<babilen>PeterNL: If you want the latest and shiniest you have to run unstable, with all the problems that are associated with that. Or wait until rolling is implemented ...
09:42<zeref>hmmmm, shiny

09:45<babilen>PeterNL: Software has to be tested in order to find bugs. That can *not* be done by just uploading whatever has been released by upstream authors. A distribution is very much about ensuring that software in combination works bug free and Debian's release model ensures that packages are well tested.
09:45<Bushmills>"stable" in debian terms is abour "mutability", not just about "doesn't crash"

09:47<PeterNL>Something based on ubuntu withous those problems every six month would be great as well. Is that Mint?
09:47<PeterNL>bernat: yep, I figured
09:47<bernat>and other distros that put out the latest without much testing will suck the same
09:47<zeref>PeterNL, what you are looking for deos not exist
09:47<Bushmills>PeterNL: debian stable is "debian without updates", unless grave security problems were found.
09:47<PeterNL>bernat: so why does it work in Arch (and on Windows)?
09:48<bernat>but of course everyone has a different experience
09:48<valdyn>PeterNL: it does not work on windows
09:48<Bushmills>thus, no update button needed. no breaking.
09:48<bernat>Windos puts out a version every 10 years?
09:48<PeterNL>valdyn: well, it does
09:48<Bushmills>and no FF5
09:48<PeterNL>Not the OS itself, but all of the packages
09:48<bernat>I haven't tried Arch, but I don't think they're immune to bugs
09:48<valdyn>PeterNL: who was that guy who wants to install a windows 2000 vm to run a game that broke in later versions?
09:48<valdyn>PeterNL: wasnt that you?
09:49<PeterNL>valdyn: that is about childhood memories. Can't fix that xD

12:45<jhutchins_lt>Bossonline: Your error is also more likely to be specific to the script you tried to install than to Debian. What was the script for and where did you get it?

12:52<Bushmills>well, i can't talk you through fixing your scripts. check whether that's could be the problem - knowing the problem is the large part of fixing it.
