00:34<Luminous>So I used unetbootin to install Debian on a computer, but it defaulted to the KDE desktop. Is there a transitional package somewhere to install all of the Gnome applications?
00:34-!-braiam [~Braiam@] has joined #debian
00:36<sney>!install gnome
00:36<dpkg>To install GNOME: install the 'gnome' package to install everything, 'gnome-desktop-environment' for GNOME as defined by upstream, 'gnome-core' for a bit less and 'gnome-session' for the basic components actually needed to run a GNOME session. You will need Xorg installed as well, ask me about <install x>.

01:06<kop>zeus: To fix your problem you'd use resize2fs to shrink the fs and then a partition tool to shrink the partition. (You could also, very carefully, destroy and then re-create the partition.)
01:07<chealer>aussa: it's not the same, but related
01:07<kop>zeus: I believe you could predict the problem by careful examination of the partition boundaries. (But it all depends on what, exactly, the problem is.) Then you could fix per above before upgrade.
01:07-!-eric [] has joined #debian
01:07<IsoPop>anyone have suggestions on gui'd Xen management tool?
01:07<chealer>aussa: /usr/share/ contains files shipped by packages, /etc contains system configuration
01:08<kop>zeus: And of course you could destroy the partion and it's fs and make a new one and reload from backup.
01:08<chealer>customization, even
01:08<kop>!tell aussa about fhs

01:14<Luminous>gdm3 is only for gnome 3 correct?
01:15<Luminous>gdm is for gnome 2.x?
01:16<Luminous>Reason I'm asking is I installed Debian from the netinstall, and it defaulted to KDE, so I'm converting it over to the default Gnome install, which is Gnome 2.X, and upon installing gdm it wants to know whether I want to use gdm or gdm3
01:17-!-Rehnquist [] has joined #debian
01:18<ima>Luminous, it should have installed gdm3 if you had chosen gnome, so I think you should be safe going with gdm3
01:18<Luminous>k, thanks
01:19-!-zyga [] has joined #debian
01:19<Luminous>Yeah I just noticed that on this machine, my laptop which defaulted to Gnome, it's using gdm3, :p
01:21<robertf>i have two sound cards, how to change the default sound card?
01:22<robertf>i use debian squeeze

07:44<catsup>just remove the package with apt-get remove
07:44-!-dowalez [] has joined #debian
07:44<catsup>or aptitude, w/e
07:45<wp>catsup: even if im using that kernel and the 2.6 meta package points to the same kernel?
07:45-!-spacefish [] has joined #debian
07:46<catsup>well don't remove the kernel you're using
07:46<catsup>how will the system boot?
07:46<themill>wp: so what kernel package did you install then? the output of "aptitude versions ~nlinux-image~i" might be useful
07:46<spacefish>hello, if i have coded a webinterface for a dns daemon, which is already in debian and want to get my code into the debian reposity, what do i have to do?
07:46<catsup>removing the package will remove the meta package if necessary
07:46<catsup>but... you do need a kernel... and you should not remove a kernel unless you are already using another different one
07:46<wols>!tell spacefish about nmg

07:52<wp>thats it
07:53<SynrG>if your question is "how do i remove an *earlier* specific kernel after upgrading to the latest" the answer is simply:
07:53<SynrG>remove it
07:53<themill>wp: that is not the entire output. Please stick the entire output in a pastebin.
07:53<SynrG>since the metapackage depends on the latest, removing the earlier one will not break it
07:53<wp>themill: will do..
07:53<SynrG>can we move on? this one is getting boring :)
07:53<themill>SynrG: depending on whether the metapackage is also from bpo or if it's from squeeze... and we can't find that output until we actually get some real output...
07:54<SynrG>oh, very well. i will just sit and sip my coffee, then :)
07:54<SynrG>you can do the tooth extraction
07:56<themill>wp: removing your old kernel won't remove the metapackage in that case.

07:57<wp>is that what the meta package is for?

08:01<themill>why are you trying to remove the newer kernel that you want?
08:01<wp>the following packages will be removed: linux-image-2.6-amd64 linux-image-2.6.39-bpo.2-amd64
08:03<wp>themill: if you have the meta package do you see the name of the meta package AND the name of the specific package in normal circumstances?
08:03-!-toto42 [] has joined #debian
08:03<themill>they are two separate packages. If you list the packages that are installed, you will see both of them
08:04<wp>themill: OK. well i installed the specific package. i then installed the meta package. i then thought that since the meta one provides the same kernel i should delte the specific package. it may well be that i in fact need to do nothing..?
08:05-!-superjet_busy [] has joined #debian
08:05<themill>correct. metapackages don't provide anything, they only cause other packages to be installed. Take a look at the list of files installed with "dpkg -L packagename"

08:09<wp>is there a recommendation page on the debian site for people wanting to install on a 64 bit system? to advise on whether to install 32 bit or 64?
08:10<petemc>most of the problems are with non free software like flash and skype
08:10<wp>petemc: i meant to help decide whether to use a 32bit or 64bit debian system. as i have a 64bit computer but it only has 3g or RAM. so it may be slower to use 64?
08:11<petemc>probably not noticably if at all
08:11<wp>ok that's great. i dont' use flash and skype. flash is the work of Satan's sister

09:39<vidkun>what would be the preferred method of installing wheezy on a laptop, using a USB stick?
09:40<Sark>vidkun - you can boot the netinst image from a flash drive, and install the bulk of it over the network.
09:40-!-Parsifal [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
09:40<wols>vidkun: installing squeeze by simply dd-ing the netinst ISO to the stick. installing debian and then upgrading to wheezy
09:40-!-LittleDeadPenguin [] has joined #debian
09:40<vidkun>wols: why take the roundabout over squeeze first?
09:41<wols>vidkun: no need to use the network at all with the netinst image. only the upgrade to wheezy needs the network. squeeze will be minimal, nothing except the netinst iso
09:41<wols>vidkun: only works if you use ethernet to connect to the internet tho
09:41<wols>cause wheezy installers have the habit of breaking. often
09:42-!-Haumea [] has joined #debian
09:42-!-Blacker47 [] has joined #debian
09:43<vidkun>wols: which netinstall image would you recommend me using? there's a confusing jungle of them...
09:44<Sark>You need to use the one for your architecture.
09:44-!-mode/#debian [+l 510] by debhelper
09:44<Sark>Is it an x86 laptop, or is it a 64 bit machine?
09:44<vidkun>Sark: x86
09:44<wols>there is only one squeeze netinstaller (for each arch)
09:44<dpkg>well, netinst is a small CD image with which you can install Debian. If, during the installation process you have a working Internet connection, you can install more packages straight away, otherwise, you will have a base install and more packages later. See See also <various cd1>, <check iso image>, <dialup install>, <usb install>, <installer>.
09:44<Sark>then use the i386 version
09:45<wols>you can also try the kmuto installer /msg dpkg kmuto if you want a newer kernel, e.g with a sandy bridge cpu

09:48-!-dayanand [~dayanand@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
09:48<wols>yes. it can work, but no one guarantees it. and using squeeze installers with minimal install which you then upgrade is so easy and fast, there is no reason to not do it. at least if you want your installation to actually work :)

12:36<Vlam>Alright one second
12:37<sney>he'd only want to blacklist nouveau if he was going to use the nvidia binary driver

14:56-!-wp [] has joined #debian
14:57-!-d0ct0r [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
14:57<Rehnquist>from what i understand at this point, memory pressure is created when a system has an excessive amount of memory - as in, more than it has physically instaleled - allocated to virtual machines. while this is not strictly a Debian question, i believe you bunch are the most qualified to help with anything :D
14:58<ompaul>Rehnquist: build too many vms and watch your machine come under pressure for resources.
14:58-!-ox [~ox@] has joined #debian
14:58<Rehnquist>ompaul: is there any other possible context for memory pressure?
14:58<veenoom>There are two types of memory pressure a process can be exposed to external and internal. To maximize its performance and reliability a process might want to react to both of them. External memory pressure might cause a process and whole system go into paging . Internal memory pressure might cause OOM conditions and eventual process's crash.

15:01<fake_handle>i think
15:03<veenoom>Kernel memory management works on top of the computer system hardware
15:03<veenoom>which manipulates memory in units called pages. Page size is determined solely by

16:04<wols>that is a backup. and I wrote about it above: the dpkg stagtus file. and that is NOT used by apt

16:07-!-BlackWeb [] has joined #debian
16:07<wols>apt might use /var/lib/apt/... maybe. dunno really if it keeps stats at all or asks dpkg for what is installed (apt doesn't install anything. apt does dependecy checking and downloading, nothing else. installing is dpkg only)
16:08<wols>and the debian release.gz file has the package info and dependencies as well
16:08<fake_handle>well, i'm only interested in a list of dependencies for packages, not whether it it used by apt or dpkg
16:08<fake_handle>wols: great. ty
16:08<wols>fake_handle: the trouble is packae a depends on package b which in turn depends on package c and so on...
16:08<wols>and when you look at package a, all you see is "depends on: b" nothing else, nothing about c
16:09<fake_handle>wols: yes. that is exactly what i wanted. the chain of dependencies
16:09<wols>so resolving them is a fools game :( and very tedious
16:09<dirichlet>fake_handle: maybe the best thing to look is

16:41<ompaul>slimshady84: no need to use the < > around the keywords in a pm with the bot

17:24<multoplex>ompaul: i need certain packages uptodate, i.e. not stable
17:24<dpkg>First, check for a backport on <debian-backports>. If unavailable: 1) Add a deb-src line for sid (not a deb line!); ask me about <deb-src sid> 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>.

17:27<multoplex>ompaul: i could backport from wheezy, yes...but, would that make anything EASIER?

17:33<ompaul>multoplex: the only thing someone here wants for you if they are helping is that you can use the machine as and how you like, however if you don't know a lot about debian, the first break in testing and it is called testing for a reason (right now the testing version is wheezy) could leave you dead in the water, not a great way for a new user to be.

17:36<multoplex>ompaul: my previous debian WAS stahle...with some unstable packages...which was a very bad setup indeed
17:37<ompaul>multoplex: mixing can kill a box so running straight stable is usually best unless you really know what you are doing / wanting
17:37<multoplex>ompaul: and i do NOT want everything stable, for example i need updates from pidgin

21:39<Lumsi>i need to install TV card, but i don't know how can i know if it's compatible with my motherboard or not?
21:40<andy__>I don't know of any tv receiver cards that work with *nix
21:40<Lumsi>kop: just need to know how can i know if my TV card is compatible with my motherboard or not
21:40<kop>Lumsi: Hardware questions are offtopic here, but if it's physically attached the way to tell if it works with debian is to boot the installer so we can get some info out of you.

21:41<dpkg>Before buying any hardware, make sure it is supported by all operating systems you want to use; ask me about <hcl>. To acquire details about your current hardware, ask me about <whats my hardware>. Please ask all non-Debian-specific hardware questions in ##hardware on

21:45<Lumsi>kop: don't you think that i'll dammage motherboard if i try to attach TV car with ?
21:45<kop>Lumsi: Ok, so you've debian running.
21:45<kop>as root type "lspci -nn" and tell us the pciid of the video card.
21:45<kop>Lumsi: The pciid looks like [xxxx:yyyy]. The card should be identifiable from the description.
21:46-!-andy__ [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
21:46<kop>Lumsi: As to plugging in the card, ask in the hardware channels.
21:46<Lumsi>but i don't attach TV card yet
21:46-!-andy__ [] has joined #debian
21:47<Lumsi>i didn't
21:47<kop>Lumsi: I'd say "no, if it plugs in it won't be damanaged. But if you don't know that much about hardware then you could break things by accident so better go get hardware support.
21:47<kop>Lumsi: Do it wrong and the hardware will break.
21:47-!-maalac [] has left #debian []
21:48<Lumsi>kop: that's the question,
21:48<kop>Lumsi: Then go get hardware support and come back if you need debian help.

21:49<kop>!tell Lumsi about hardware
21:50<kop>Lumsi: Go where you like but the factoid suggests another irc channel.
21:51<kop>!tell Lumsi about irc tutorial

21:52<Lumsi>witch irc i've to..
21:53<kop>Lumsi: How you change channels is up to your irc client, the irc program you're using now. You want the server and the ##hardware channel.

23:52-!-radu [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
23:53<k1lumin4t1>peterS, I want it because latest LibreOffice version stinks, in my opinion
23:53<k1lumin4t1>peterS, it isn't propperly managing previous version documents
23:54<peterS>k1lumin4t1: sounds like you want to downgrade to squeeze, then, and reinstall
23:54-!-toote [~toote@] has quit [Quit: Leaving.]
23:54<k1lumin4t1>peterS, good idea
23:54<k1lumin4t1>peterS, I'm on SID
23:55<k1lumin4t1>peterS, I'm dlding previous version from the site anyway
23:55<peterS>I don't really envy you, removing all the droppings of / libreoffice, but once you've found them all, you just need to change your sources.list file to say squeeze instead of sid, then apt-get update and then install and bob's your uncle

23:58<k1lumin4t1>peterS, explain the first part about the envy :)
23:58<peterS>k1lumin4t1: just saying, the various support packages that are built from, and installed alongside, and libreoffice, are not necessarily easy to find
23:59<k1lumin4t1>peterS, now the LibreOffice people have two versions running up
23:59<k1lumin4t1>peterS, and OpenOffice one version with Betas
23:59<k1lumin4t1>peterS, so we have around 4 different office suites versions
