01:49<madduck>chrisreich: I am starting to get the hang of handbrake, but the supported video codecs are pretty bad. I mean, x264 alright, and MPEG4, but on the Free side of things, only THeora/VP3, which sucks.
01:49<Tekk_>I installed firmware-ipw2x00 but I'm still not getting /dev/wlan on 6.0.3
01:49*madduck wants VP8
01:49<Tekk_>madduck: converting video?
01:49<Tekk_>madduck: vlc can conver to vp8 right now
01:49<madduck>trying to rip dvds to mkv files, yes
01:50-!-newb12466343 [~jod@] has joined #debian
01:51<Tekk_>I know that the card works and is ipw2100, it's worked in....ubuntu, puppy(lucid and slacko,) fedora, arch, and haiku
01:51<gsimmons>Tekk_: The ipw2200 driver does not provide a /dev/wlan device file.
01:51<Tekk_>gsimmons: I thought it was created on modprobe. how to I add the device?
01:52<madduck>Tekk_: interesting, but it seems to be able to extrac only a single audio track, and only a single subtitles track
01:52<gsimmons>Tekk_: It should create a eth* interface (e.g. eth1). Have you reloaded the module (or restarted the system) since installing the firmware-ipw2x00 package?
01:52<Tekk_>gsimmons: several times
01:52<Tekk_>no eth interfaces
01:52<Tekk_>nor wlan
01:55<Tekk_>MAKEDEV isn't giving any error output, but it's not making devices either
01:55<Tekk_>(assuming it's the same syntax as hurd)
01:57-!-imagelife [~imagelife@] has joined #debian
01:57<gsimmons>Tekk_: I don't know why you want to create a device file. The output in your kernel ring buffer (dmesg) after executing "modprobe -r ipw2200 ; modprobe ipw2200") would be useful to examine, please provide this at a paste site (/msg dpkg paste).
01:57<Tekk_>oh hold on
01:58-!-bartm [] has left #debian [Leaving]
01:58<Tekk_>gsimmons: yeah, dmesg wasn't showing anything interesting
01:58<Tekk_>though it looks like there was some magic in modprobing 2200 and 2100
01:58<Tekk_>that even a reboot can't accomplish
01:59<gsimmons>Tekk_: Do you have a eth1 interface currently available? ("ifconfig -a")
01:59<Tekk_>gsimmons: yeah, I was able to connect to the internet
01:59<Tekk_>no idea what was going on before
02:00<Tekk_>like I said, some apparent magic in modprobing 2200 and 2100..
02:00-!-kb1rma [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
02:00<Tekk_>gsimmons: thanks
02:01<gsimmons>Tekk_: Sorry, you said ipw2100 (the ipw2200 driver is for different hardware). No problem.
02:02<Tekk_>gsimmons: yeah, I know it is, and the hardware says 2100...
02:02<Tekk_>just a bizarre bug, not my day to be installing debian ;)

03:02<tdignan>Is it normal to see tar + gzip save 8 gigs on a payload of 50g?
03:02-!-jespada [~jespada@] has quit [Quit: Ex-Chat]
03:03<cmr>As in, it was 50, now it's 42?
03:03<cmr>tdignan: What's the data?
03:03<tdignan>actually, it was 54g on the FS, and now in the tar its 42g
03:04<tdignan>its supposed to be 3 home directories, so, assorted junk
03:04<tdignan>I am trying to figure out if it has everything in it
03:05<cmr>I'd say it's normal.
03:05<tdignan>i'm going to compress stuff more often :)
03:05<tdignan>that's excellent savings
03:06<cmr>Mm. If you're not impressed with the amount of time, check out lzop.
03:06<tdignan>i will.. this took hours
03:08<cmr>Compression isn't as good, but lzop is the fastest I know of.

03:18<dutchfish>hi, on a machine shutdown, the kernel stated that i should run a fsck on one of my filesystem wich is an xfs fs. After a reboot and umount, the dryrun of xfs_repair -d /dev/xxx yeilds no errors, any hints?
03:20<dutchfish>this is the output:
03:22-!-inc0 [] has joined #debian

03:50<hook>I just read on Wikipedia that "Ubuntu, unlike Debian, compiles their packages using gcc features like PIE and Buffer Overflow Protection to harden their software. These extra features greatly increase security at the performance expence of 1% in 32-bit and 0,01% in 64-bit."
03:51<jasonsmr>hello channel
03:51<tdignan>hook: was it cited?
03:51-!-heffay [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
03:51<hook>How much truth is in there? I'd expect Debian to be more secure.
03:51<jasonsmr>Im reading a LDAP PAM + Kerbose Debian setup,
03:51<hook>tdignan: Yup, it's cited from...
03:51<hook>...the Debian Secure by Default project
03:51<jasonsmr>Question if running multiple LDAP servers on the same network do I need or would I be required to deploy /install Kerbose on all of them too ^^ ??
03:52<tdignan>which wiki article?
03:52-!-fisted [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
03:52<hook>tdignan: The Wiki article is about Ubuntu Linux
03:53<tdignan>yeah i'm going to edit out the "Unlike debian" -- since it is not vital to communicating the point.
03:53<tdignan>encyclopedias are not supposed to be commercials
03:53-!-masteryami [~masteryam@] has quit [Quit: Konversation terminated!]
03:54<gebi>hook: especially on 32bit debians biggest problem is the default target for i486, ubuntu uses i686 which is MUCH faster in some regards
03:54<hook>Is the "unlike Debian" bit still true?
03:54<gebi>for stable yes
03:54<tdignan>hook: perhaps, I don't know
03:55<gebi>for unstable afaik debian just introduces a common hardening approach
03:55<tdignan>you could just as well put there "Unlike Mandrake 2.3"
03:55<tdignan>it's clearly a jab
03:55-!-dutchfish [] has quit [Quit: Splash, leaving the bowl]
03:56<gebi>i really hope debian will switch to at least i686 with see for the 32bit multiarch on amd64
03:56-!-masteryami [~masteryam@] has joined #debian
03:56<hook>tdignan: Well, it does make slightly more sense, since Ubuntu is originally based on Debian ...but yeah, it seems like a jab.
03:56<gebi>or wait a bit and use x32 as ABI
03:57<hook>So har far is Debian with hardening, PaX, etc?
03:57*hook plans to switch from Gentoo to Debian in the near-ish future
03:58-!-jasonsmr [] has quit [Read error: No route to host]
03:58<tdignan>hook: this document it is linked to does not prove the statement either
03:58-!-tensorpudding [~michael@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
03:58<tdignan>I don't personally know whether its true, but I do hate people who abuse wikipedia
03:58<tdignan>it's supposed to be factual :)
03:58<tdignan>factual means: cited
03:59<tdignan>more or less wikipedia is just a PR/propaganda game these days
03:59-!-devil_ [] has joined #debian
04:00-!-dutchfish [] has joined #debian
04:00<tdignan>i'm switching back to debian again after a couple years of using ubuntu because I really don't need a pre-canned set of packages chosen for me in advance
04:00<tdignan>just debian minimal and built it up, that's what I prefer
04:00<garysteers>It's the best way!
04:01<hook>tdignan: Yeah, it's sad that Wikipedia is abused that way. But on the other hand I've seen FS projects that wanted to write their own article, but were kicked off for being "propaganda", while they just copy-pasted their about page to start something.
04:01<tdignan>i've used gentoo before too. you'd be at home on debian, except you'd not spend time compiling and there'd be no "use flag"
04:02<hook>Sniffle, I'll miss Gentoo and its USE flags ...but I just don't have the time for it anymore.
04:02<hook>I need a rock-solid, secure, no-nonsense system with a good community that goes out of my way and does what it's told.
04:03<weasel>good luck with that
04:03-!-nutterpc [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
04:03<tdignan>if you add up all the hours you spend compiling stuff on gentoo, no doubt there is a net loss of time
04:03<hook>That doesn't sound really encouraging, guys :P
04:04<weasel>this isn't the sales department :)
04:04<hook>weasel: Thank $DEITY, it isn't! :D
04:04<weasel>"a good community that goes out of my way and does what it's told"
04:04<gebi>just be sure to not use insserv on debian servers
04:05<gebi>as it might not even start ssh if apache or openvpn has problems <- crazy...
04:05<hook>Nooooooooooooo, not the community, the OS should get out of my way and do what it's told.
04:05<hook>...sorry, just woke up
04:05<tdignan>I switched to debian, and suddenly I felt young again. No more hair loss, my face loos beautiful, and I have all my free time back.

04:07<newb12466343>hi guys, I have Debian 6 x64 on my XEN PV VPS with kernel 2.6.18-274.3.1.el5xen. How to update the kernel? aptitude update and aptitude upgrade does not update the kernel. Thanks
04:07-!-gusnan [] has joined #debian
04:07<hook>What bothers me the most on Gentoo is not so much the compiling, but that when something fails, it means "emerge -DNu world; revdep-rebuild; emerge -DNu world; revdep-rebuild; emerge -DNu world" ...which sometimes means you're compiling LibreOffice three times in a row because e.g. xpdf/poppler.
04:08<weasel>newb12466343: that's not a debian kernel,
04:08<weasel>newb12466343: are you sure you're booting a kernel that's installed locally and not one given to you by your hoster?
04:08<newb12466343>it was given by my hoster
04:10-!-jasonsmr [] has joined #debian
04:10<newb12466343>so i have debian 6 x64 image at SolusVM control panel to be able to reinstall my vps and after reinstall I got kernel like that 2.6.18-274.3.1.el5xen
04:11<newb12466343>any ideas on what is going on?

04:36<jasonsmr>meaning that I ssh'ed into another machine, then ran a updater process,
04:37<jasonsmr>the tty session was closed when debian restarted.
04:37-!-thunderrd [~thunderrd@] has joined #debian

06:28<babilen>jasonsmr: We are talking about the initial installation, aren't we?
06:28<svuorela>jasonsmr: it of course depends on what stage of installation it failed, and your skill set ... but if it is just a matter of package installation that made it fail, you can probably boot into rescue mode, chroot in and finish it by hand.
06:28<jasonsmr>It was probably half way
06:28<babilen>jasonsmr: Just install it again -- That is most likely less work.
06:29<themill>svuorela, babilen: depends on what you want. I tend to set up the local dhcp server to accept the hostname the client wants; our work dhcp servers are set up the opposite way around where they are the authoritative source of the name.

08:27<jankidudel> I'm pretty much newbie to Linux and can't understand 1 thing. I want to install phpmyadmin, so just can aptitude install phpmyadmin. But I want newest version, so wget it , tar , configure and install it as other tarbals. Question is WHERE ? where should i install these programs ? in which directory/ies ?
08:27<cmr>jankidudel: When you configure, use "./configure --prefix=/usr/local" and just make install as normal.
08:28<melmothX>jankidudel: /usr/local is the canonical one, but you probably want to stick with the one shipped by debian
08:28<jankidudel>melmothX, "shipped by debian " ?
08:28<melmothX>jankidudel: the one you apt-getted

08:51<ompaul>Danneh: does 2.6.39 and that tends to sort out most hardware problems if you want to run stable, you can get an image to install testing, but unless you are used to running debian and can get yourself out of a hole if updates put you in one I'd not suggest it.

08:52<ompaul>Danneh: that link also shows a link to the same images
08:52<Danneh>At the moment I'm running Ubuntu but I want to switch to Debian. It's mainly because of the bug with the kernel that is used currently in most distros and my controller card
08:53<Danneh>bug with the kernel and the controller card*
08:53<gebi>the kernel is mostly independend of the distro
08:53<gebi>Danneh: e.g you can just boot with a live-cd and install linux 3.1 from debian experimental in your ubuntu system
08:53<gebi>no need for reinstall

10:13<darkztk>i've installed empathy, but i can't choose MSN Protocol, only Google, Facebook and Jabber
10:13<cmr>darkztk: I don't know about empathy specifically but one gotcha I've found is that with the introduction of WLM and its protocol, msn stuff is meh when communicating with WLM clients.

14:01<sney->!why nvidia installer sucks
14:01<dpkg>nvidia-installer works fine for you today, granted. Let's say tomorrow Xorg is updated -- the nvidia driver will break. If you try to uninstall nvidia (nvidia-installer --uninstall), then you break Xorg badly. nvidia-installer overwrites files at random, and has NO CONCEPT of package management. We recommend against using it based on extensive experience. USE THE DEBIAN PACKAGES. Ask me about <nvidia>.

19:44<wald0>well, by rebooting i can now load the nvidia module... but seems like i still need a newer version than in testing, so im trying with unstable
19:44<wald0>what i dont know is how much relevant will be to still in squeeze for main system...
19:44<wald0>is really testing that full of annoying bugs _
19:45<scraze>wald0: depends what you're using the system for, if its in a production environment then stable is the way to go
19:46<scraze>testing is a lot more stable and usable than unstable / experimental
19:46-!-Doofus4283 [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
19:47<scraze>but either way, for getting your nvidia card to work it is not that important, you can pin packages from testing / unstable / experimental so that you keep using them through updates & upgrades
19:47<wald0>not really for production, im installing it for a friend, not very familiar with linux but well, i just want that he don-t turn in a lot of troubles if i switch to testing :)
19:47-!-hillrodd [~Hill@] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
19:48<wald0>now i need to try the version from experimental, seems like not sufficient... how i can say to apt-get install to use the experimental branch ?
19:48<scraze>hmm, that's a tricky one - I use testing for my own systems and have no trouble, but that's no guarantee that problems will never arise
19:49<scraze>wald0: the most reliable way imo is to use pinning
19:49<dpkg>Pinning is a method to choose which version of a package to install when multiple versions are available from <sources.list>. Bugs are explained at . If you use stable, pinning won't help you from messing up the system, ask me about <backports> instead.
19:49<wald0>well, 1 problem is ok, 2 and 3 should be... but 5, 10, 15 problems... should be not nice
19:50<scraze>hrm, this should be more informative:
19:50<scraze>!default release
19:50<dpkg>Put APT::Default-Release "foo"; in /etc/apt/apt.conf (create if needed) and replace foo with squeeze, wheezy, sid or experimental. That will make foo the standard release that packages will be fetched from. Also ask me about <tum> and see Debian bug #97564 if you are using a release earlier than squeeze.
19:51<wald0>mmh, actually i only need to install some packages from experimental *nvidia ones*
19:51<scraze>by the way, if the nvidia module loads, is there still a problem?
19:51<wald0>yes, seems like my card requires newer drivers
19:51-!-saulo [~chatzilla@] has joined #debian
19:53<saulo>I have a server running firebird, but my system goes to 100% of HD and processor use in a database and firebird is in a loop, somebody can help me to discover what file uses 30GB of HD?
19:53<saulo>I know it's not on /tmp
19:54<scraze>yep, see the url for good instructions on how to get those packages in a clean way (in short, 1. set default release (squeeze) in apt.conf 2. add experimental sources in sources.list 3. add file in preferences.d pinning nvidia packages to experimental 4. apt-get update && apt-get install the nvidia packages
19:54<scraze>^- to waldo
19:55<wald0>mmh, let me see if i can reach the graphical system
19:56<saulo>ooops, found! it's the log on /var... :S

20:01<wald0>saulo: what-s the name of the file ?
20:01<saulo>scraze: This will help a lot next time! :D thanks!
20:01<saulo>wald0: /var/log/firebird.log .... I will try run a script to recover the database now :(

20:04<wald0>scraze: i have not setup it yet, i would like to make a further look later but i dont want to enable it permanently, just wanting to install it now on this system
20:04<wald0>so simply download them from experimental and see if they works
20:04<chris__>I just installed debian for the first time (wheezy), and now I'm trying to install the Pan newsreader through the software center. But there isn't a download button - only a "use this source" button which turns gray for a while but doesn't seem to actually do anything. What should I do?
20:04<Blackout__>Anyone have a magic DD command to replace the contents of a file with random contents?
20:04<Blackout__>for i in `ls | xargs`; do echo $i....; dd if=/dev/random of=$i bs=$(stat -c %s $i) count=1 conv=notrunc; done # fails on large files
20:04<Blackout__>'bs' doesnt accept longs, even when i tweak it to use M / K, it doesnt do a lot

20:05<scraze>wald0: in that case make sure to tell apt to hold the packages after installing, otherwise if your friend decides to do an apt-get update && apt-get upgrade (via synaptic or something) then the nvidia packages will be downloaded from squeeze again

22:04<scraze>np, here's hoping it isn't a hardware problem!
22:04<cg>jerryclunsford, I only do expert installs to pinpoint problems, maybe it will help you too
22:06<jerryclunsford>cg: When I know enough I will try it again on expert mode tried it last night didn't help but might just be me.
22:08<jerryclunsford>Now just wait for the files to download and see if it makes it through. there is one thing I did differently I was thinking the whole time it's not going to work.

22:13<jerryclunsford>I was getting too tired I guess up about 30 hrs. getting to old for that the computer was blank my sister game it to me here daughter killed the usb ports
22:13<jerryclunsford>and the hard drive died
22:13<cg>tell me about it, I totally messed up my desktop trying to downgrade to squeeze

22:14<jerryclunsford>Tom petty was right the waiting is the hardest part 50 mins of download left
22:14<cg>try to document every step, if it's not the drives it might be a faulty iso...
22:15<cg>well, I luckily managed to finish one of my songs...
22:15<jerryclunsford>I used the 64 bit on another computer before it wouldn't workon this one but then the one I used it on was a hp server
22:16<scraze>jerryclunsford: to be retroactively helpful, if mkfs is slow because of bad blocks then there will be messages in /var/log/syslog and/or /var/log/messages (and possibly on tty4 when using the installer)

23:12-!-ff0000_it [] has joined #debian
23:13<ff0000_it>hi all, i just installed "squeeze" and i've a problem during the poweroff/reboot step: it can't unmount /var (which is a lvm logical volume), any hints?
23:13<scraze>jerryclunsford: ouch .. that's after rebooting right? what does tty4 say?

23:14<jerryclunsford>no reboot tty4 says menu item 'pkgsel' failed
23:14<jerryclunsford>configuring pkgsel failed with error code 1
23:16<scraze>you're using the most recent official squeeze iso right?
23:16<jerryclunsford>Downloaded yesterday
23:17<scraze>then I really can't think of anything but a hardware problem .. semi-random points of failure in a widely and thoroughly tested install process cast a dark feeling :/
23:20<scraze>i believe the installer runs a checksum on the iso before starting, but if that's more of a fingerprint than a complete checksum then conceivably the disk you're installing from could be faulty
23:20<jerryclunsford>there where several instances before that of can't remove '/target/usr//bin/scrollkeeper-update same except -rebuild and one fro /target/usr/bin/fc-cache :read-only file system
23:21<jerryclunsford>I could try the amd64 disk I used on my server
23:22<scraze>if it's still on, try mount | grep target -> that should show a line like "/dev/sda1 on /target/ type ext3 (rw,errors=remount-ro,commit=0)" , the last error about "read-only file system" suggests that your line shows ro instead of rw
23:23<jerryclunsford>this laptop will go both ways 32 or 64 I downloaded the 32 after the 54 didn't work first
23:23<gdb>it suggests to me that errors were encountered so it remounted it ro (the errors=remount-ro)
23:23<scraze>gdb: exactly, i phrased it badly & incompletely
23:23<gdb>oh no worries :-)
23:24<gdb>i had a devil of a time getting squeeze installed on my server... 5 years old, cdrom going out. i finally resorted to netinst and had to hit "retry" about 30 times when it was trying to read the installer off the disc

23:30<scraze>as we feared, it's remounted as read-only (that's the ro)
23:30-!-ff0000_it [] has quit [Quit: leaving]
23:30<jerryclunsford>so If I semi-understand this hard drive read errors
23:31<scraze>I think it's remounted read-only for both read/write errors
23:31<jerryclunsford>So it could be memory problem?

23:32<scraze>there should be details in /var/log/syslog or /var/log/messages, search for the name of the disk ( I guess /dev/sda but your paste doesn't show )

23:34<jerryclunsford>could just type in ls on the tty?
23:34<jerryclunsford>but there isn't a text editor available is there?
23:34<scraze>ooh.. there is nano I believe

23:57<scraze>gdb: just the EH complete isn't worrisome indeed, but that's also what happens after a read/write error
23:57<gdb>well, hell this page is from 2006 -- surely this would have been fixed by now...
