00:18<dardevelin>not sure if this will work
00:18<dardevelin>mint supported my card

00:31<tit>card as I can know that I have if I did not recognize lspci?
00:32<ml|>dardevelin: please don't suggest to others to use non debian packages; it is not supported or recommended
00:33<dardevelin>ml|, it was exceptional. But message received
00:33-!-noyb [] has joined #debian

00:35-!-juanma [~juanma@] has joined #debian
00:35<noyb>does anyone know how to make debian automount android
00:36<noyb>it just worked in linux mint
00:36<dardevelin>tit, some distros hack the kernel so it can vary ..
00:37-!-juanma [~juanma@] has quit []

00:40<tit>thanks, only appears the usb ralink with which I am connected, the intel 5100 no trace
00:41<dardevelin>noyb, have look at here not sure if it will work for you /help
00:41-!-taylor840326 [~taylor@] has joined #debian
00:42<ml|>tit: is this a laptop, does it have a hardware switch?
00:43<noyb>dardevelin, too complicated
00:44<noyb>I'm new at debian
00:44<noyb>it's a bit more advanced than ubuntu or mint
00:45<noyb>looking at auto fs
00:46<ml|>dpkg: tell tit -about iwlwifi
00:46<ml|>tit: ^ I think that is what you need; good luck
00:46<dardevelin>noyb, i think you can make a folder in mnt folder and mount the card there once
00:47<dardevelin>get the unique id of the card
00:47<dardevelin>and then add the line to fstab
00:47<dardevelin>to automount
00:47<noyb>is there a program that will just automount anything I plug in?
00:48<noyb>I would prefer that
00:48<dardevelin>noyb, that is really unsafe... and i'm not quite sure on how to do that
00:48<ml|>noyb: using gnome?
00:48<noyb>why does it work directly in linux mint
00:49<noyb>they are both based on debian?
00:49<noyb>ml|, yes gnome
00:49<ml|>yes, but mint is _not_ debian, it ios different
00:49<dardevelin>noyb, no, mint is based on ubuntu lmde is based on debian . and they are quite different in lot of things
00:49-!-tit [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:50<noyb>I'm liking it though
00:50<ml|>it should just work I would think, but I don't use gnome
00:50<noyb>forcing me to learn a bit more
00:50<ml|>noyb: ask later if you get no help now
00:50<noyb>especially because i hate what they did to ubuntu
00:51<noyb>unity is crap
00:52-!-hardwalker [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:52-!-abdulkarim [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:52<noyb>dardevelin, What i meant was they are all based on debian
00:53<dardevelin>well but they still wildly incompatible ( ubuntu) the lmde is very compatible
00:53<noyb>ml|, found this :

00:59-!-jm_ [] has joined #debian
01:00<dardevelin>it was my bad, for moments thought it was a bot function were you could pass him the message and he posted on paste.debian
01:00<dardevelin>and linked automatically in the channel
01:00<dardevelin>so when i used the command was kicked again
01:00<dardevelin>*[naive ]
01:01<ml|>heh, you paste to a pastebin then paste the link here
01:02<jthill>(all hail pastebinit)
01:03-!-patrik_ [] has joined #debian
01:03<ml|>I prefer ask dpkg
01:03<noyb>dardevelin, ran blkd and it says it's vfat could it be that I don't have ntfs support?
01:04-!-lanthan [] has joined #debian
01:04<dardevelin>noyb, i think is more like the sd is formated in vfat
01:04<noyb>ya that's what i meant
01:04<dardevelin>from that tutorial you would put something like this in /etc/fstab
01:04<dardevelin>/dev/sdc1 /media/sdcard vfat rw,nosuid,nodev,user,noauto 0 0
01:04<noyb>maybe it won't mount because its vfat
01:04-!-tensorpudding [~michael@] has quit [Read error: Operation timed out]
01:04<dardevelin>but it's recommend to use UUID instead of /media/sdcard
01:05<noyb>what is UUID?
01:05<ml|>dardevelin: I think you mean /dev/sdX
01:05<ml|>dpkg: uuid
01:05<dpkg>A Universally Unique IDentifier (UUID) is used to reference disk partitions (among other things). See currently known partition UUIDs with `blkid'. In /etc/fstab and /boot/grub/menu.lst, use "UUID=dead-beef-0420-etc" as the partition name. Helps to cope with device name changes such as hda->sda (<libata> transition) or changes in USB disk order discovery. <LVM> tools accept PV/VG/LV UUIDs as arguments, use {pv,vg,lv}display to acquire.

01:14<jthill>ml|: lodgeit
01:14<ml|>oh, yes it is great
01:15<dardevelin>noyb, ok, that is nice to know ... I personally don't mount sd cards that is why don't know much about it...
01:15<noyb>ahh I see
01:15<dardevelin>usually do my transfer via bluetooth
01:15<noyb>isn't that slow
01:16-!-toshi_ [] has joined #debian
01:16<ml|>noyb: like I said it should just work in gnome; I use usbmount /msg dpkg usbmount
01:16<dardevelin>however i did fight to get my ntfs working with ntfs3g
01:17<noyb>it's always something but hey that's what keeps us learning
01:17<dardevelin>That's the spirit
01:17<noyb>I wish it would just work lol
01:17<dardevelin>well i don't :D i'm not hopeless when something breaks or doesn't work in gnu lands
01:18<dardevelin>can't say the same while was in the M$
01:19-!-jthill [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
01:22<noyb>gone from ms to ub to mint and now deb
01:22<noyb>tried many others inbetween for fun
01:23<noyb>dardevelin, if they make it too hard you don't learn anything and if they make it too easy you don't learn either
01:24<dardevelin>if they make it too hard, you need also to try harder :D
01:25<dardevelin>i don't mind hard as long well explained somewhere
01:25<dardevelin>or still work able

01:37<dardevelin>also you should have made a backup of the original file

03:28<JoeKickass>weasel: thanks
03:28<weasel>you're welcome
03:28<thorgrin>just out of curiosity, what causes the difference between uname -m and dpkg --print-architecture ?

03:29<weasel>because you don't have the dynamic linker for amd64 binaries installed
03:29-!-idealist [] has joined #debian
03:29<thorgrin>ok, so there is 64b kernel but all libraries are 32 bit so no 64bit apps on that system, right?
03:29<idealist>hello @all. back again
03:30<weasel>unless they are statically linked, or you get all the libraries and linker and stuff

05:01-!-zyga [] has joined #debian
05:01<XeonBloomfield>gemunu: Debian is a great Linux-based distribution which (what I can truly say) is base for many distros, like Ubuntu or for example smartphone system- MeeGo
05:02<XeonBloomfield>MeeGo is probably based on something else
05:02<shanks>Though you can run Debian on MeeGo devices.. like the N900
05:02<XeonBloomfield>but remember about Linux Mint, etc. (based on Ubuntu, based on Debian)
05:02<thorgrin>it was maemo that was debian based
05:03<shanks>I get confused between maemo and MeeGo. I know one hass now superceeded the other more or less.

05:06<babilen>shanks: Please read the backlog
05:06<XeonBloomfield>shanks: he want to move from Ubuntu to Debian
05:06<shanks>gemunu: you can install it via a VM, if you have space on your hardisk you can dual boot

05:06<gemunu>dual boot
05:07<babilen>!tell gemunu -about ig
05:08<amitz>what is the debian recommended way to install eclipse as an external program? /usr/local/ or /usr/local/bin/ . The installation has a folder named eclipse, which contains everything.
05:09<babilen>amitz: I would unpack it to /usr/local/stow/eclipse and stow it (/msg dpkg stow) -- Squeeze/Wheezy/Sid?

08:35<aigarius>techmaniack, and if you don't have them, once you get the apt-get running again, there were ways to redownload and reinstall all installed packages to repair any other corruption (except in config files)
08:36<aigarius>techmaniack, the easiest for me is to use synaptic, get it to show all installed packages, select them all and choose reinstall :)
08:37<babilen>.. that would be "aptitude reinstall ~i"

08:56<sumpter>the /usr folder is set to root ownership
08:56<devil>its supposed to be
08:56<thorgrin>sumpter: chown user:group folder
08:57<sumpter>yeah i know its supposed to but i need to change it
08:57<thorgrin>but that one is ok
08:57<devil>sumpter: you dont want to change it
08:57<sumpter>well what about the home folder?
08:57<devil>like thorgrin said
08:57<babilen>What are you trying to do/achieve?
08:57<sumpter>i need to install something and it can't install to folders i don't own
08:57<sumpter>install neverwinter nights
08:58<devil>you install with root rights anyways
08:58<sumpter>its a install script
08:58<devil>depends on the software
08:58<devil>well, then run it
08:59<devil> ./foo or whatever
08:59<babilen>sumpter: Install it to ~/stow/nwn/ and use stow to create suitable symlinks in your home, adjust PATH, LD_LIBRARY_PATH, MANPATH (i.a.) accordingly
08:59<babilen>sumpter: You don't have root on that machine?
08:59<sumpter>I have root
08:59<sumpter>how do i install to stow?
09:00<babilen>!tell sumpter -about stow
09:00<babilen>!tell sumpter -about stow usage

09:01-!-Bachue [~bachue@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
09:01<babilen>sumpter: I have no idea how nwn is installed, but you most likely have to choose an installation path. Make that something like /usr/local/stow/nwn-VERSION, then "cd /usr/local/stow ; stow nwn-VERSION" and you are done.
09:01-!-Bachue [~bachue@] has joined #debian
09:02<babilen>I guess it is expecting to be executed by bash but uses "#!/bin/sh" which is dash on your system. Run "bash ./the_install_script"
09:02<sumpter>ill try that
09:03-!-and1bm [] has quit [Quit: Konversation terminated!]
09:03<babilen>You also don't have to use stow .. It is just that I find it preferrable as it makes it easy to remove manually installed software.

09:19<thorgrin>then run it as root
09:19<devil>sumpter: sudo needs to be set up in debian
09:20<devil>sumpter: debian has, contrary to ubuntu, a real root, accessible by su or sux
09:20<devil>so sudo is not needed in debian to become root
09:20<amitz>sumpter: you must have run su before doing chmod /usr -rw before. Hence you must run su before doing "chmod 755 /usr"
09:20<devil>su or sux will do
09:20<sumpter>thats what i did this time
09:21-!-pablo [~pablo@] has quit [Quit: Saliendo]

09:25<shanks>devil: no need anyway. life's a game
09:25<devil>shanks: and has priority
09:25<sumpter>@babilen so should i use bash or sh to execute?
09:26-!-tamir [~tamir@] has quit []
09:26<sumpter>im root right now
09:26<andrea>sumpter (babilen and devil): I would just create /usr/local/lib/nwn, 'chmod sumpter /usr/local/lib/nwn' and then install nwn in that directory... Could that be more simple?
09:26<babilen>sumpter: bash (the installation script is buggy so you have to use bash explicitly)
09:26<babilen>andrea: Take a look at stow, it is the right tool for the task.
09:27<devil>andrea: if the game has a install script, it hopefully has a uninstall script. if so, that is to prefer
09:27*andrea now shuts up - three guys for installing a game on Debian is more than enough :)
09:27<babilen>But orthogonal to sumpter's issues right now
09:27<shanks>devil: renice?
09:27<andrea>babilen: you are right but I am thinking of a simple way to let sumpter understand what he is doing
09:28<andrea>babilen: then he will learn also stow, some day
09:28<sumpter>i can't chmod sumpter
09:28<andrea>devil: of course, I mean with the install script
09:28<sumpter>it says invalid mode "sumpter"
09:28<babilen>sumpter: What do you mean exactly? What are you trying to do now?
09:28<thorgrin>sumpter: its 'chown sumpter'
09:28<babilen>sumpter: Did you install the game?
09:28<andrea>sorry, I wanted to write CHOWN, not chmod
09:29<sumpter>its still telling me the same thing
09:29<andrea>assuming the username is 'sumpter' in your machine
09:29<sumpter>i tried the install on ubuntu and it wouldn't detect the optical drive, so i tried debian
09:29<babilen>sumpter: So, you became root (with "su -"), executed the installer script and installed to the default location already?
09:30<sumpter>plus i was getting tired of using sudo to execute root commands
09:30<sumpter>no i can't select a install location
09:30-!-dli [] has joined #debian
09:30<sumpter>thats what i've been trying to do

09:32-!-janos_ [~janos@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
09:32<babilen>And you are not sure where to install the game?
09:32<sumpter>it suggests usings /usr/local/games/nwn but that says the same thing as everything else
09:32<sumpter>i know where i want to install it
09:33<sumpter>but it won't let me
09:33<devil>did you already paste the complete error?
09:34<sumpter>i would like to install to /home/sumpter/games/nwn
09:34<sumpter>@devil yes
09:34<babilen>sumpter: Ok, please do the following: "su -", "mkdir -p /usr/local/stow/nwn", "bash /path/to/", use "/usr/local/stow/nwn" as installation path, "cd /usr/local/stow", "stow nwn" DONE
09:35<babilen>sumpter: If you don't want to use stow use: "su -", "mkdir -p /usr/local/games/nwn", "bash /path/to/", use /usr/local/games/nwn" as installation path DONE (don't think that it will be on the PATH in that case though)

10:30<CaperucitaRoja>babilen: yes, this cards have to components, one is the tuner, the other the chipset... ¿procesor?, so you have to search for the right "tuner" and "card option", some cards are recognized by the sistem, mine not... so the sistem load something like a "dumy", by defect... modprobe.d should resolve that, i think... it sims i'm wrong
10:30<EmleyMoor>If it could work with a local maildir, that would be fun...

10:32<shanks>EmleyMoor: Thunderbrid is primarily designed for Windows, I believe. But yes, if it could be set to use a locally running SMTP and also local mail spool that would be great. Maybe there's a plugin ? Sounds useful for people on Linux.
10:32<Pirulays>i have a question about cms made simple smarties and UDT
10:32<Pirulays>how i can set a var to use on my UDT ?
10:32<babilen>CaperucitaRoja: Ok, I guess that the tuner module is loaded and does something wrong. You could try to blacklist it and see if that helps. Also: Does it work if you omit the options from your command?
10:32<Pirulays>like news post date set a var and use php for create my string ?

14:38<devil>german: you can kill dpkg, but its not really recommendable

14:38-!-martin is now known as Guest16763
14:39<Bushmills>others wondered why perl hasn't obsoleted awk
14:39<german>i cant find synaptic process
14:39<sumpter>babilen it is going farther now, no crashes yet
14:39<german>maybe because it running in root mode
14:39<babilen>sumpter: great .. buggy scripts then.
14:39<thorgrin>iOSS: awk is more like a programming language, sed is not. each has different uses...
14:39<devil>german: i told you the process
14:39<german>let me see, sorry
14:40<devil>german: synaptic is just a gui
14:40<iOSS>thorgrin: do you mean it uses too much memory?
14:40<german>how do i find process id
14:40<sumpter>babilen im having an issue with the cd reading though
14:40<iOSS>Bushmills: can you give me an example of thing that sed does and awk doesn't?
14:40<german>kill dpkg doest work..
14:40<thorgrin>i would not worry about it. but sed is often easier to use in scripts
14:41<babilen>sumpter: Please elaborate, but note that we can not fix scratched installation media via IRC.
14:41<thorgrin>iOSS: there is no such example, sed is turing complete (afaik)

14:43<sumpter>babilen it wants some file called "" while the actual file on the disk is "disk2.bzf"

14:46*thorgrin pretends he is not here
14:46<sumpter>babilen how would i do that?
14:47<german>wow it doesnt work either

14:48<jhutchins_lt>german: kill wants the PID of the process, not the name. Not sure about killall.
14:48<steinex>devil: if pidof doesn't say anything, dpkg is not running anyway.
14:48<jhutchins_lt>german: pkill <process name> may work, and you can also specify a kill level.
14:48<babilen>sumpter: It's ok, just saying. Unfortunately I don't think that a #neverwinter-nights channel exist -- You can use *any* editor to edit scripts as they are just plain text files.
14:48<devil>steinex: i must have missed pidof not saying anything

14:49<jhutchins_lt>german: If you have a window displayed, you can pres Ctrl-Alt-Esc, move the resulting skull-and-crossbones over the window, and click to kill.

15:29<dpkg> . Ask me about <nouveau> (no 3D support in Debian packages), <nvidia dkms> or <nvidia m-a>. For GPUs made before 2004, see <nvidia dkms-173xx> and <nvidia dkms-96xx> for legacy drivers.

15:32<Clas6>the problem is, I installed a game called 'torcs' today, and I can not play it. before installing debian I could play it in ubuntu or win 7
15:33<ml|>reading the wiki should come first, IMHO

17:16<cmr>rss: Installing a package generally pulls in its dependencies.
17:16<rss>cmr, apt-get -ud install <package> should do that. unless you have a really broken system
17:16-!-abcdefg [] has quit []
17:17<rss>cmr, after that apt-get -u install <package>
17:17<rss>the -u shows what is needed rather that just doing.
17:17<cmr>rss: I don't want to install the package, I am doing development work with it, but I want its dependencies from APT so I don't have to fight with that later.

17:20<babilen>cmr: I would recommend to just dpkg -i the package you are working on and use "apt-get install -f" to install the (missing) dependencies. You probably also need the build-dependencies (aptitude -R build-dep) to work ...
17:20-!-german [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
17:21<cmr>babilen: Hmm, I didn't think of trying build-dep because it's a perl app, but that is actually everything I needed.
17:21<rss>cmr, OK, I understand the problem now. Could apt-get build-dep help?
17:21<cmr>rss: Yep!

19:24<sney->just ask away and if anyone is here / knows the answer, they will help
19:24<jhutchins_lt>sumpter: Well, re-read the release notes and the install guide, take your time and keep notes so you know exactly what you did.
19:24<sumpter>in the meantime, I have a device running a debian command line
19:24<sumpter>i need to install a gui on it
19:24<sumpter>what is a good, lightweight gui?
19:24<jhutchins_lt>Torvalds like xfce
19:25<sney->lxde, windowmaker, xfce come to mind
19:25<sumpter>thanks, ive tried lxde but i couldn't install it
19:25<sney->windowmaker is old school, a little weird to use but it's really super tiny
19:25<sumpter>it's a touch screen device, and i don't have up/down arrows
19:26<sney->huh, maybe kde-plasma-netbook would be better then. it's good on small screens, though it's not really "minimal"
19:26<sumpter>i need something i can install with just text input to the command line
19:26-!-mikeg9b [~michael@] has quit []
19:26<sney->there is nothing in Debian that you can't install with just text input at the command line.
19:26<sumpter>not the lxde
19:27<sumpter>it wanted me to configure my keyboard, and so a box came up, that i had to select my keyboard type
19:27<sumpter>problem was i couldn't move up or down to select anything
19:27-!-chattr [] has joined #debian
19:27<sney->there's an option you can pass to apt that keeps debconf from giving you menus like that
19:27<sney->I can't remember what it is though

23:22<sumpter>sney but ram and processor would be more important then

23:23<sumpter>mine can't lol. stupid intel with their integrated chips
23:23<sney>sumpter: without knowing much about this device you're using I can't really say. has X worked on it before?
23:23<sumpter>sney ive never used it
23:23<sumpter>is there some way to start it without xinit?
23:24<benjr>how do i check if i have 3d drivers enabled?
23:24<sney>sumpter: anyway the last line of the fatal server error never tells us much, can you pastebin /var/log/Xorg.0.log ?
23:24<sney>benjr: glxinfo |grep -i render
23:24<sumpter>its on a touch device
23:24<sney>you can type on it, right?
23:24<dpkg>pastebinit is a command-line tool to send data to a <pastebin>; convenient if you don't have a graphical interface. To paste e.g. your sources.list do "aptitude install pastebinit; pastebinit /etc/apt/sources.list"; to paste the output of a program do e.g. "dmesg | pastebinit". See also <nopaste>.

23:31<sumpter>what do you mean?
23:31<sney>ok, so squeeze with backports. unfortunately since your gpu is pretty new you only have 2 choices to install the nvidia driver. one is to wait for the backported driver to show up (maybe a week) and the other is to install it from and possibly break things :/

23:36<sney>roughly. I know the nvidia maintainer is going to do it
23:36<benjr>i can wait then
23:37<sney>you could try backporting it yourself (the main package names are nvidia-kernel-dkms and nvidia-glx) but I can't walk you through that tonight
