00:35<augustRush123>hey sebasloto
00:35<augustRush123>is that a repository??
00:35<aussa>chealer, is it possible that positive "rendering" could be because of the intel card?
00:35<sebasloto>hello anyone have the fifth season of the big bang theory?
00:36<chealer>aussa: what do you mean by "positive "rendering""?
00:37-!-Jekktis [~schoen@] has joined #debian
00:37<augustRush123>hey I need repository names...could anyone give me plz.
00:37<aussa>chealer, glxinfo | grep rendering; direct rendering: Yes
00:39-!-Bachue [~bachue@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:39<Jekktis>is compiz not working in 64-bit a common problem?
00:40<chealer>aussa: you're asking if the intel driver could cause glxinfo to say direct rendering is enabled?
00:40<aussa>chealer, yes
00:40-!-Jekktis [~schoen@] has quit []
00:41<chealer>aussa: if so, the intel driver is for Intel GPUs. unless you have an Intel *graphics card*, it's useless.
00:41<chealer>aussa: wait... which intel card?
00:41-!-toote [~toote@] has quit [Quit: Leaving.]
00:42<aussa>chealer, I have a laptop, it has two cards, a intel and a nvidia

02:35<Bushmills>also google for debumblebee
02:38<aussa>Bushmills, yes, I'm trying to use hybrid-windump, It just isn't working right, in order to use it I have to install nvidia drivers first, but I don't know if they are actually working, every time I try to run an OpenGL app, hybrid-windump crashes... is there a way to see if the nvidia drivers are installed properly?

03:27<Aquarius>anyone alive?
03:28<Bushmills>Aquarius: are you?
03:28<Aquarius>listen... PulseAudio just doesn't work by me. I dunno, i've been messing with it for about a week and still not results. Alsa alone doesn't take on all tasks, sound is being taken over from time to time by other applications, specifically such as Skype or Wine
03:28<Aquarius>how do i setup PulseAudio, for God's sake?
03:30<Aquarius>one more thing... i'm using Trinity KDE3.5.. but i don't think that'd be an obstacle to PulseAudio, would it? (if it DOES really work by somebodies)
03:30-!-vu3rdd [~vu3rdd@] has joined #debian
03:30<Bushmills>here it comes ...
03:30-!-SpeedyG [] has joined #debian
03:30<Aquarius>i see you're more interested in ve3rdd than in my prob
03:30<devil>riding a dead horse while trying to set up satans work ;)
03:31<Aquarius>it's not a dead horse. Trinity project has been updated
03:31-!-Metaphor-Man [] has joined #debian
03:31<devil>Aquarius: noone here is interested in looking into kde3 - pulsaudio relations
03:31<devil>pulseaudio is a pita in itself, no need to drag kde43 out of its grave
03:32<Aquarius>who says it's a relation even? I personally have no clue if it has any connections to KDE as such. I was inclined to think that PulseAudio acts on its own
03:32<devil>kde3 even
03:32<Aquarius>fine, i see.
03:32<bartm>Aquarius, there's also #debian-kde
03:32-!-PsychoGame [] has joined #debian
03:32<bartm>Aquarius, maybe someone there uses pulseaudio ?
03:32<Aquarius>bartm, yes, but the prob is PulseAudio rather than KDE, you see...
03:33<Aquarius>everything else works perfectly
03:33<devil>Aquarius: i have solved many sound probs in support by removing pulsaudio.
03:33-!-freerabit [~quassel@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
03:33<Aquarius>well, tell you what... Alsa DOES work alone (esound), BUT.... it's not multitasking by me..... i dunno why, but i always get this problem... for instance, i may play something with my player, then i run skype and it jams both streams... including its own
03:34-!-mode/#debian [+l 475] by debhelper
03:34<Aquarius>and it doesn't matter what i use, Gnome or Trinity... same shit.
03:34<cmr>Pulse works out-of-the-box here.
03:34<Aquarius>and hereby i dare to conclude that sound managers/server whatsoever have nothing to do with the desktop environment of any kind
03:34-!-jibel [] has joined #debian
03:34-!-mercutio22 [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
03:35<Aquarius>by many people it DOES work somehow.. i've read some threads and posts..
03:35<cmr>Aquarius: What's your problem?
03:35<Bushmills>is that stable or testing you're running on?
03:35<Aquarius>they tell me to use PulseAudio because it's more flexible with multistream sources

03:36-!-UltimediaOS [] has joined #debian
03:36-!-Abdelhak [~user@] has left #debian []
03:36<Bushmills>which one is that?
03:36<Aquarius>basically i have probs with Skype and Wine in regards to audio
03:36<Aquarius>not testing
03:36-!-screenn [~screenn@] has joined #debian
03:37<Aquarius>i suppose...
03:37<cmr>Aquarius: What errors do you have with pulse?
03:37<Aquarius>no errors, it just doesn't let me hear anything
03:37<Aquarius>however... it's own indicator shows that sound gets inside somewhere somehow...
03:37<Aquarius>but it doesn't come out
03:38<cmr>Nothing in any logs?
03:38<Aquarius>erm... the prob is.. i dunno what to look up... i'm kinda new to linux in general.. so no idea.
03:38-!-mercutio22 [] has joined #debian
03:38<cmr>grep pulseaudio /var/log/messages could be a start
03:39<Aquarius>i've got along with it as a clicker. Know a couple of commands, but i hold on to desktop more than terminal console.
03:39<Aquarius>ok, right away...
03:39<Aquarius>ok... what's the website on which i can post it...
03:40<Aquarius>aha, thanks.

03:44<cmr>Aquarius: Is it muted? Do headphones work?
03:44<Aquarius>yep, all fine. And it's muted.
03:45<Aquarius>if i get back to just Alsa sound is there.
03:45-!-kriller [] has joined #debian
03:45<Aquarius>so i know everything is ok by my side.
03:45<Aquarius>every time i install Pulse sound just goes off.
03:45<cmr>No, I mean headphones with pulse.
03:45<Aquarius>let me see...
03:46<Aquarius>erm.. how do i look it up?
03:47<cmr>Look what up?
03:47-!-stooj [] has joined #debian
03:47<Aquarius>headphones with pulse :)
03:48<Aquarius>sounds ridiculous alright, and i have no clue what you mean. But the thing is.. i've seen something like that somewhere...
03:48<Aquarius>so now tell me please what do you mean
03:48<cmr>Take a pair of headphones and plug them in.
03:48<Aquarius>that's what i've been doing ALWAYS
03:48<Aquarius>i have no speakers
03:49<Aquarius>front panel by the way
03:49<Aquarius>there's a back one too
03:49<Aquarius>but i don't think i should try it out
03:50-!-martin__ [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
03:50<Aquarius>listen.. maybe it's my hardware?
03:50<Aquarius>i never installed proprietary drivers for my soundcard
03:50-!-gruetzkopf [] has joined #debian
03:50<cmr>Aquarius: install paman, see if there are any sinks.
03:51<Aquarius>i mean it does work and Debian does have some driver for it.... but perhaps it has some flaws?
03:51<Aquarius>integrated HD ATI SB by the way...
03:53<cmr>Under the devices tab, play some audio somewhere (perhaps a song) and see if any sinks are listed.

03:55-!-chitchat [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
03:55<Aquarius>yes, they appear by numbers
03:55<cmr>Is "ALSA plug-in" in the Clients tab?
03:57-!-adi [~adi@2001:470:b471:0:bc6d:a304:eb14:c2da] has joined #debian
03:57<cmr>And you're sure volume is set properly? Not muted etc?
03:57<Aquarius>no, but there's one weird thing...
03:58<Aquarius>it's Kmix...
03:58-!-[unix] [~t7@] has joined #debian
03:58<Aquarius>now it has only one volume adjustment...
03:58-!-[unix] [~t7@] has quit []

03:58<cmr>Nah that's normal.
03:58<Aquarius>and Input is Capture
03:58<Aquarius>nothing else
03:58<Aquarius>ah.. ok
03:59<Aquarius>weird... it works but i don't hear it...
03:59<devil>Aquarius: recheck with alsamixer, kmix is weird at times
04:00-!-ant777 [] has quit [Quit: Leaving.]
04:00<Aquarius>Front was muted
04:00<Aquarius>but not masterfront
04:00<devil>Aquarius: and really make sure nothing is muted!
04:00<Aquarius>it's in GNOME ALSA Mixer

04:02<Aquarius>i also made one thing... i created asound.conf... but normally it doesn't create it yourself and it does really affect something. Should i delete it?
04:02<Aquarius>they do it on forums for some reason.
04:02<cmr>might as well try.
04:02<cmr>Did you unmute front?
04:03<Aquarius>now, let me restart

04:13-!-mercutio22 [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
04:16<Bushmills>well, that's something
04:16-!-ompaul [~ompaul@] has quit [Quit: Konversation terminated!]
04:17<cmr>Aquarius: Remove any configuration you may have done to it in the past week trying to get it to work. If that doesn't work, I'd say look to some pulseaudio people to get it working.
04:17<Aquarius>ok. thanks
04:18<Aquarius>you know what... i personally think that PulseAudio uses a wrong device... i have one which is of my videocard..... HDMI, but it never worked even in Windows...
04:19<cmr>HDMI audio?
04:19<Aquarius>well.. that's the one used by Alsa too... i guess.. and it works...

04:30<robson>not because I'm afraid that if it won't work it will be hard to uninstall this driver and module. (i like have a clean, fresh system).

05:00-!-vebe [] has joined #debian
05:00-!-vebe [] has left #debian []
05:01<Aquarius>probably anything else but amd64 if it's not AMD.
05:02<valdyn>FeNux: "amd64" is the right choice if that intel chip supports 64-bit
05:02-!-mc3 [] has joined #debian
05:02<cmr>Aquarius: amd64 is pretty much every 64bit processor.
05:02<valdyn>or Aquarius should have said "anything else but ia64"

05:17-!-janos_ [~janos@] has joined #debian
05:19<Aquarius>i've had that prob too
05:19<Aquarius>you must install Trinity java package
05:20<Aquarius>install everything that has to do with Trinity/Java
05:20<Aquarius>that's how i solved that prob
05:20<Aquarius>and by the way.. Weasel doesn't work with java very good even having it installed. You better try Chromium or Opera
05:21<shanks>I'll have a look into that Aquarius , thanks
05:21<Aquarius>tell me if any success. Curious.
05:21<cmr>Aquarius: I don't have any packages with 'trinity' in their name, what packages are those?
05:21<Aquarius>ah.. sorry
05:21<Aquarius>wrong channel, haha
05:21<Aquarius>excuse me.
05:22<Aquarius>just forget it, will ya...
05:22<Aquarius>just seek for any java packages, better to install them all
05:22<cmr>Hah, all of the java packages.
05:22<Aquarius>well yeah... i guess that helps. If you don't know what exactly is wrong
05:22-!-korky2 [] has joined #debian
05:23<cmr>All 1310 of them.
05:23<Aquarius>well... i guess you ought to know what the problem is in that case :)
05:23<Bushmills>yes, knowing beats askink Aquarius :P
05:24<Bushmills>asking, even
05:24<cmr>shanks: icedtea6-plugin makes it work here, haven't ever tried it with Sun's though.
05:24-!-korky2 [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
05:24<shanks>cmr: didn't somethign happen with icedtea6-plugin recently?
05:24<shanks>I don't think iceweasel in backports depends on it anymore..
05:24<cmr>I have no idea.
05:25<Aquarius>icedtea plugin.. that's what helped me i guess.
05:27<Aquarius>shanks, nothing happened to it, you have just never installed it.
05:27<Aquarius>it wasn't installed by me initially.
05:27<cmr>Hm, still works without icedtea6-plugin insteall so I don't know what magic this is.
05:28<shanks>cmr: I instaled icedtea6 and it now works. I used to have icedtea6 but it was removed by my system when iceweasel no longer depended on it. this change happened recently IIRC
05:28<bartm>knowing beats guessing as well :)
05:29<shanks>cmr: I don't know how yours works without it, maybe you have another plugin that provides this functioanlity?
05:30<cmr>shanks: It's listed as the icedtea plugin *shrug*
05:30<Aquarius>cmr, same was here. Without icedtea thing it never worked.
05:30-!-Texou [] has joined #debian
05:30<shanks>cmr: icedtea is just a fork of openjdk perhaps you have openjdk?
05:32<cmr>I have both icedtea and openjdk installed but icedtea is the only plugin package I (don't) have. Perhaps they provide a plugin as well but I don't know why it'd be called icedtea.

05:32<cmr>Yep, the virtual is still provided.
05:32<Aquarius>icedtea is never installed initially, that's what i can tell ya.
05:32<Aquarius>i had to install it myself.
05:33<Aquarius>and only then i got it to work.

05:36<shanks>and it works in weasel AND chrome. can't get better than that! well better is not having to use java in the first place
05:37<Aquarius>in weasel in may crash
05:37<Aquarius>i tried it on
05:37<shanks>Aquarius: i usually use chrome. faster, leaner..
05:37<Aquarius>i play pool there... it takes long for script to finish
05:37<shanks>Aquarius: you ever play pool in real life?
05:37<Aquarius>shanks, Chromium is also not perfect. It's fast alright, but there are some flaws
05:38<Aquarius>shanks, one time
05:38<Aquarius>shanks, but technically never
05:38<cmr>shanks: Faster, maybe. Leaner? Not at all. Uses *more* resources than firefox!
05:38<shanks>Aquarius: no browser is perfect.. but it's nice to have a choice :) there is a good choice these days
05:38<cmr>Very good choice.
05:38<shanks>cmr: I've found that chrome uses about 30MB per tab. if you leave weasel open for a day, it'll eat most of your RAM
05:38<Aquarius>actually Opera beats the rest in linux today..
05:39<bartm>w3m ? :)
05:39<cmr>shanks: I've never had it go over about 300M and it's open for days at a time.
05:39<weasel>would you mind calling the browser by its real name, people?
05:39<Aquarius>there's only one thing i don't like about it..... it uses anti-aliasing for fonts... i've installed sharpfonts script so i made it look like windows.. i can't stand those ubuntu/debian fonts.. but it didn't work on Opera for some reason.
05:39<Bushmills>links2 -g
05:39<shanks>bartm: links2, lynx..? ;-)... wget | more
05:40<cmr>shanks: wget was my browser on slackware until I figured out how to install packages... NOT fun!
05:40<shanks>cmr: Slackware has package management?? ;-)
05:41<shanks>anyway i have to use a rubbish java based vnc client to get console access to the hypervisor of a hosted box where i run some linux guests... that's the only access they provide.
05:41<shanks>access is better than NO access :)

05:42<Aquarius>or does it not disturb you with LCD monitors?

05:42<Aquarius>cmr, not in browser, in entire system
05:42<cmr>Oh, no, not at all.
05:43<Aquarius>it DID disturb me.. cause i have CRT monitor with low res 800x600
05:43<Aquarius>it hurt me eyes.
05:43<cmr>A what monitor?
05:43<Aquarius>CRT... meaning, not flat one ;)
05:43<shanks>cmr: that would actually be useful. though linux format did a browser review two months ago on Linux, but i'm not sure how scientific those guys are. they wrote a load of s**t about Debian in last month's issue for example
05:43<Aquarius>they're old already.

13:00<Black_Prince>yoshi, I meant for audio ...
13:01<Black_Prince>yoshi, and what do you mean by hard boot ...

15:38<Aquarius>as for "less problems".... actually i'd argue on that. I worked my ass off till i got that damn PulseAudio to work. I dunno, but something tells me audio problems are better solved in Ubuntu. Anyhow, i stay on Debian just out of principal, and probably hoping for it's advantages over Ubuntu.
15:38<Aquarius>and one more thing... i'm not into mainstream stuff either.
15:38<Aquarius>the name itself even "Ubuntu" annoys me even.

22:42<ml|>I would make a 1GB swap just incase
22:43<Dark_Link>if you have 2g of ram you will almost never use a swap file
22:43<ml|>I have 12GB and when things go wrong it gets used :)
22:44<nixjr>I've got another computer with 4gb of ram and I've never seen the swap used, i was thinking about fromt he point fo view of saving wear and tear ont he ssd
22:44<Dark_Link>ya for a ssd dont use a swap file
22:44<Dark_Link>it will kill it
22:45<ml|>place swwap on another drive or is the ssd all you got?

22:45<kop>Dark_Link: Eventually, yes, but it won't happen in real life.
22:45<Dark_Link>kop, ok in 4 years
22:45<Dark_Link>it will die
22:45<sney>4 years is pretty good for a hard drive of any kind.
22:46<nixjr>I guess my knowledge of SSD's is dated lol
22:46<Dark_Link>my harddrive has lasted 7 years
22:46<Dark_Link>and still going good
22:46<kop>Meanwhile, swap is useful. It frees up ram for things that matter.
22:46<ml|>nixjr: it is your choice to use swap
22:46<sney>but anyway, if you have significant RAM you won't ever touch swap even if you're using some hog like kde's indexing service
22:46<Dark_Link>but if you play minecraft you will touch it
22:47<kop>Dark_Link: Iv'e drives that are at least 10 years old. And I expect my ssds to live that long too.
22:47<Dark_Link>minecraft can use 8g of ram :s
22:47<Dark_Link>and it sometimes still isnt enouth

22:49<sney>nixjr: better to possibly shorten your SSD's life than to run out of memory. besides, if you back up your important stuff often enough, what's a replacement disk every few years?
22:50<Dark_Link>well the bad thing is ssd cost a lot for their memory

22:54-!-dous [] has joined #debian
22:54<nixjr>yea I've noticed on windows machines no matter how much ram you put in, it still uses the page file
22:55<dpkg>A number of Linux kernel developers debated "swappiness" - exploring when an application should or should not be swapped out, versus reclaiming memory from the cache.
22:55<cybersphinx_>Dark_Link: There's a swappiness parameter that is 60 by default I think, the lower it is, the less swap is used.
22:56-!-lanthan_ [] has joined #debian
22:56<Dark_Link>hmm so 32bit can only use 4g does swap count to that max memory?
22:56<Dark_Link>how does that work lol

22:58<Black_Prince>Well, probably people that have programs that need to allocate more than 4GB of memory would use 64bit system ...ž
22:58<sney>and they would know this going in
22:58<sney>hopefully anyway
22:58<nixjr>Excuse my layman lanugage but I heard on a 32bit system you can have well over 4gb total ram, but no single program can be allocated more then 4gb
22:59<Dark_Link>poor minecraft users :P
22:59<Dark_Link>nixjr, now without pae
22:59<sney>nixjr: that's pae, or bigmem. it's a linux kernel option that allows it to use (I think) up to 16GB
22:59<Black_Prince>nixjr, yes ... as sney mentioned there is PAE
22:59<nixjr>ah ok
22:59<Dark_Link>32bit windows can only use 3.5 g of ram
22:59<Dark_Link>i think
22:59-!-FingerWizard [] has joined #debian
22:59<sney>oh it's up to 64 now? ok
22:59<sney>been a long time since I looked at make menuconfig :P
23:00<Dark_Link>and you have to use a ram disk for the rest
23:00<ml|>dpkg: pae
23:00<dpkg>Physical Address Extension (PAE) is an x86 processor feature allowing more than 4 gigabytes of physical memory to be used. Linux supports PAE since version 2.3.23 (up to 64 GB of memory on 32-bit systems). PAE is supported by the Intel Pentium Pro/II/III/4/4M/D, Xeon, Core and Atom; AMD Geode NX, Athlon (K7), Duron, Opteron, Sempron, Turion and Phenom; Transmeta Efficeon; VIA C7 and some others.

23:00<nixjr>Dark_Link, I had a windows box back in the day where I hit a memory limit (not 4g) that was a combination of my system ram, and my graphics ram
23:01<Black_Prince>Ah yes ... Crazy gamers. "I want more video ram ... I'll borrow from RAM"
23:01<Dark_Link>lol i rember that
23:01<Dark_Link>it was called hyper memory
23:01*Black_Prince prepares for another lol call to dpkg :-|
23:01<nixjr>this had a dedicated graphics card :p
23:02<Black_Prince>I have integrated card ... It's well sharing memory with RAM :-|
23:02<Dark_Link>my old card had 128 mb dedicated then it used 412 mb of my ram
23:02<sney>gpu / framebuffer memory does count towards the 32-bit limit

23:04<nixjr>sney, it wasnt a 32bit issue because the limit I hit was something like 1.5gb, the next windows service pack raised the limit so I didn't hit it again
23:04<Dark_Link>Black_Prince, have you seen that pocket pc?
23:04<Dark_Link>looks like a nds and a psp mated
23:04<Black_Prince>Dark_Link, no.

23:10<FingerWizard>nixjr: Any ideas on your setup? (Stable, Testing, Unstable)+(Gnome, KDE, XFCE, etc)
23:11<nixjr>FingerWizard, also trying xfce for the first time
23:11<kop>!tell nixjr about overview
23:11<yoshi>Dark_Link, is that /etc/sudoers /etc/init.d/sudo, one of the files in /var/lib/sudo
23:11<Dark_Link>i dont rember
23:12<kop>!tell nixjr about introduction
23:12<Dark_Link>i dont use sudo anymore
23:12<isra>Should be no sweat with the iso made for XFCE
23:12<sney>yoshi: usermod -aG sudo username
23:13<nixjr>isra, I downloaded "debian-", it has xfce option during the install, but I'm not sure how to tell if its stable, testing, or unstable
23:13<kop>nixjr: We recommend the netinstall. I always install the bare minimum and the xserver-xorg package and whatever top-level package for my desktop. You might also look at tasksel for installing "stock" sets of packages.
23:13<isra>Mmm not quite the right iso file if you ask me
23:13<ml|>or adduser username groupname
23:14<kop>nixjr: It's stable.
23:14<yoshi>sney, yoshi is not in the sudoers file. This incident will be reported. this is what i get when i try to sudo
23:14<kop>!tell nixjr about stable
23:14-!-eugenio [] has joined #debian
23:14<yoshi>i could log into root and run it that way but i woud rather not
23:14<isra>i agree, netinstall with standard desktop, squeeze just works, easy to install, good support here, many packages. Doesnt get much better
23:14<sney>yoshi: you need to log out and log back in

23:17<sney>number of packages available offline
23:17<sney>otherwise nothing
23:17<sney>it's the same OS
23:17<ml|>yoshi: does your /etc/sudoers have this.. %sudo ALL=(ALL:ALL) ALL ?
23:18<FingerWizard>nixjr: a netinstall will already come with the latest updates, where you'll have to start with stable and upgrade to testing/unstable
23:18<nixjr>ah i see
23:18<kop>FingerWizard: No. The stock netinstall installs stable too.
23:18<sney>please do not encourage new users to use testing/unstable
23:19<kop>nixjr: We recommend stable to newcomers.
23:19<yoshi>ml|, no it has root ALL=(ALL) ALL

23:20<FingerWizard>I'm just saying the option is only available on the netinstall cd as opposed to the stock debian offline cd
23:20<yoshi>FingerWizard, yeah but netinstall doesnt always work for everyone
23:21<ml|>yoshi: I'm not sure adding yourself to the sudo group will work then
23:21<FingerWizard>yoshi: true.
23:21<yoshi>ml|, can i not just add tat line to the file?
23:22<ml|>not sure I use testing, but you can do it another way
23:22-!-wolfpython [~wolf@] has joined #debian
23:22<kop>Ok. So I can't find a conversion script. If I write one in python can this be included in the logrotate package so that in a way that gives the user the choice to change to --dateext and automatically converts existing log files? Or will something like that need to be written in perl/shell according to policy? (I'll probably write it in python anyway and people can run it out of /usr/share/doc/logrotate*/contrib/ or something. But I'm curious.)
23:22-!-behanw [] has joined #debian
23:22<yoshi>ml|, and that is?
23:23<ml|>yoshi: do you have /etc/sudoers.d/ ?
23:23<yoshi>ml|, yes
23:23<kop>In other words, there's sometimes conversion scripts that get run during upgrades. Is python a choice for those?
23:24<mewerner_arand>kop: You'd likely have to aks the maintainer for logrotate ;)
23:24<ml|>yoshi: then create /etc/sudoers.d/10_local and add you user there
23:25<kop>mewerner_arand: Yeah. I already added to the existing bug report. It'd obviously be up to him to include it. But I'm under the impression that there's debian policy regarding these sorts of scripts.
23:25<yoshi>ml|, just vi /etc/sudoers.d/10_local and put my name in it?
23:26<ml|>visudo /etc/sudoers.d/10_local and add a line just like root's but with your username instead
23:26<yoshi>i actually dont have a visudo command
23:26<dpkg>From squeeze onwards, you can grant yourself (minimally secure) root permissions for <sudo> by adding yourself to the "sudo" group: "adduser your_username sudo". For lenny, you can use <visudo> to add 'your_username ALL=(ALL) ALL'. See the man pages indicated by "apropos sudo" for more information.
23:28<ml|>kop: hmm, and that will work even tho yoshi does not have.. %sudo ALL=(ALL:ALL) ALL in /etc/sudoers ?
23:28<kop>ml|: Probably not. But I forget the details. (And have not been following the conversation. Why wouldn't he have that?)
23:29<ml|>dunno, what he said
23:29<yoshi>kop, dont know but it isnt there i have some other line
23:29<yoshi>root ALL=(ALL) ALL
23:29<kop>yoshi: What version of debian?
23:29<nixjr>install complete and sitting at xfce desktop ... that was pretty easy and painless even for this ubuntu noob

23:30<yoshi>and yes squeeze
23:31<yoshi>ml|, visudo in a root terminal when i tried it in a non root it didnt do anything

23:38-!-bartm [] has joined #debian
23:38<yoshi>yeah but i'm worried tat installed files will then require admin permissions to be altered
23:38<yoshi>because su techinically makes your terminal a root
23:38<nixjr>I've heard the su/sudo thing its one fo the differences I'll encounter in debian when transitioning form ubuntu
23:38<kop>yoshi: sudo makes you root too.
23:39<ml|>yoshi: when done logout :)
23:39<yoshi>kop, but it seems to operate differently then just going root
23:39<kop>nixjr: It's more personal taste than anything, although there can be reasons to use one or the other.
23:39-!-mewerner_arand [] has joined #debian
23:39<yoshi>yes my root password is much more secure
23:39<netzsooc>do you know why when I type "alt+[f1]" it goes to tty1 then "alt+[f7]" to X as expected and then "alt+[f1]" just gets me a black screen?
23:39<kop>yoshi: Differently how?
23:40<kop>netzsooc: In X you need ctrl-alt-f1.
23:40<yoshi>kop, well i have used su to run an executable and the files/folder it generated were root permed that has never happened with sudo
23:40<kop>netzsooc: alt-f1 is probably doing some xfce-thing.
23:41<kop>yoshi: Sounds strange to me, but then I don't use sudo. The whole point is to be root.

23:41<netzsooc>kop no need, but it should work, it was working until last dist-upgrade and now I don't know how to downgrade :S lack of reading :/

23:42<netzsooc>and also it doesn't work to any non graphic tty
23:42<netzsooc>I mean from 1-6

23:45<nixjr>Sorry for this noob question, what is the equivalent of the synaptic package manager in ubuntu, but for debian/xfce?
23:45-!-mewerner_arand [] has quit [Quit: leaving]
23:45<kop>admini: gdm3 starts X. You'd need to look at how to configure (or alternately, kdm) on vt8 instead of the default vt7. I've a line in /etc/inittab that looks like: 8:23:respawn:/usr/bin/X :0 vt8 -query -layout "Single Head Layout" But that's for X as a thin client without a dm.

23:46<FingerWizard>nixjr: Synaptic package manager is the same across debian, but there is a 'Software Sources' which is similar to Ubuntu Software Center
23:46<isra>nixjr > in stable with gnome its just called synaptic package manager, have u searched for that one
23:46<FingerWizard>*'Software Center', sorry
23:47<yoshi>kop, heck last i checked you cant even chmod +x something without su or sudo. but if you chmod something as su then it's perms are for root no?
23:47<nixjr>isra, im using xfce not gnome, do all the DE's have it?
23:47<kop>yoshi: If you chmod as root you can always change the permission bits. But chmod never changes the user/group.
23:47<ml|>chmod +x should work as a user if you have rights to the file
23:48<bartm>how to recognize what's in cvs and what's in svn on ?
