00:24<rigved>hello everyone
00:26<rigved>i have a debian machine with squeeze + gnome installed. it was working fine for 5 months since i installed it. now suddenly, it has stopped booting.
00:26-!-phahn_ [] has joined #debian
00:26<Nemoder_>rigved: how far does it get?
00:26-!-trifon [] has joined #debian
00:27<rigved>i see the grub menu. whether i select the normal mode or the recovery mode, i still get dropped to a busybox shell. the prompt says initramfs
00:27-!-djK-9272561875 [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:27<rigved>there is a lot of stuff on the screen
00:28<Nemoder_>usually the last few lines will say where it is stuck, sounds like it can't find the root partition though if it's dumping to busybox
00:28<rigved>i scrolled up and found the first line saying: BUG: unable to handle kernel paging rquest
00:28<rigved>it says that it is unable to mount /dev, /sys and /proc
00:29<rigved>no such file or directory
00:29<Nemoder_>you will probably need to boot a recovery cd and see if you can mount the filesystems manually
00:29<rigved>i have a squeeze cd, from which i had installed it initially. will that work? for recovery?
00:30<Nemoder_>hm I think so
00:30<rigved>Nemoder_: ok. thanks. let me try.

01:02<rigved>Nemoder_: hi. my net had stopped working. so, i have been able to get to recovery mode. it asks me to choose the root partition. i did that. so, i can access all the executables in /bin and /usr/bin. now, how do i correct the problem? the initial problem said that it was unable to mount /dev, /sys and /proc.

04:32<hoshi411>is there a way to just completely ignore all currently instaled binaries/packages and completely do a base reinstall with aptitude or dpkg or apt-get without having to reformat etc..?
04:32<jm_>hoshi411: debootstrap might help
04:33-!-fleur [] has joined #debian
04:33<hoshi411>jm what about just taking my current broken system , since it is still useful without an xwindow system and running an OS install script with it?
04:33<hoshi411>is that possible
04:33<hoshi411>OS installs usually want you to boot up from a disk or usb or something right
04:34<hoshi411>not familiar with that
04:34<jm_>hoshi411: why is it broken?
04:34-!-OkropNick [] has joined #debian
04:34<hoshi411>jm_ it's a computer I am using for testing right now so.... ive been really hacking away at it
04:35<hoshi411>jm_ do you know about the asus slider ?
04:35-!-nah [] has joined #debian
04:35<hoshi411>its like the transformer
04:35<jm_>hoshi411: no
04:35-!-bones_was_here [~bones@] has joined #debian
04:35<hoshi411>basically it is a tegra nvidia armel tablet
04:35<hoshi411>which has android on it
04:35<hoshi411>but I really wanted to put debian on it
04:35<hoshi411>but before I do that I just have been playing around with chroot
04:36<hoshi411>first debian was hard to install on chroot for somereason so I was forced to install ubuntu
04:36<hoshi411>that didn't go well cause ubuntu is way not up to speed with armel ... not as much as debian is that is
04:36<hoshi411>so I threw some debian repos on the source list and commented out ubuntu
04:37-!-nik_ [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
04:37<hoshi411>then installed lxde debian
04:37<hoshi411>that was working nice
04:37<hoshi411>in fact that is the best thing I have found yet for nvidia armel devices
04:38<hoshi411>so far I have tried bodhi mobile , kde mobile, ubuntu unity2d and lxde
04:38<hoshi411>best most functional yet is lxde through debian
04:38<hoshi411>after that I tried installing kde mobile and that messed things up
04:38-!-zyga [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
04:38<hoshi411>so it was a pretty messed up system to begin with

04:40<jm_>I'd just use debootstrap (but you can't do this with fs mounted in a running OS)
04:40<hoshi411>ive been trying to get rid of all the old ubuntu packages and make it pure debian but after a few apt-get remove --purge commands things got messed up
04:40<hoshi411>jm_ hmm but the os I will be doing it on is only a loop file ...
04:40<hoshi411>so it doesn't need to be mounted
04:41-!-nik_ [] has joined #debian
04:41<jm_>hoshi411: well it needs to be mounted for debootstrap to work, what I am trying to say is you can't boot an OS and run debootstrap to replace itself (or rather you can, but what will happen ...)

04:44<hoshi411>I wish I could do "apt-get remove all except debian-core"
04:44<hoshi411>or something like that
04:44<hoshi411>and then start from there
04:44<hoshi411>with the current kernel
04:44-!-fleur [] has quit [Quit: Konversation terminated!]
04:44<jm_>you can do such things with aptitude

04:46<SynrG>in-place replacing ubuntu with debian? lunacy. supposing you manage to actually succeed in getting your system back to a "pristine" state.
04:46-!-byonk [] has joined #debian
04:46<SynrG>what are you going to use as criteria for success?
04:47<SynrG>and how do you get support for such a thing? wouldn't there always be a shadow of doubt that what you have is purely debian?
04:47<SynrG>so i do think debootstrapping a new chroot and starting fresh from that is the best way to go rather than continuing to try to transform what you have now.
04:48<SynrG>you say "first debian was hard to install on chroot for some reason" ... would be nice to have details about that.
04:48-!-Greg` [] has joined #debian
04:49<hoshi411>SynrG : yea im a lune ^_^ this is my testing device by the way. not a serious effort yet but I am learnin a lot in the process.
04:49<hoshi411>I would love to figure out why debian would not work the first time
04:49<hoshi411>i came here trying to get help with it but ... was turned away because it was an android device and app I was using to do the install
04:50-!-zyga [] has joined #debian
04:50<hoshi411>there was a problem with the "linux installer" app getting through to the debian repositories becauase it would not accept ipv6 or something like that
04:50<hoshi411>is what the creator of the app told me O_o
04:51-!-jkf [~Greg_od@] has joined #debian
04:51<hoshi411>but since then he has not posted an update to the app so it remains a broken app
04:51-!-simonw [] has joined #debian
04:51<hoshi411>i wouldnt know how to get debian chroot going on this device other than that app though
04:51<hoshi411>im not that smart

04:54<simonw>Getting dhclient errors about hlen not being 6. Sure it isn't a problem for the Debian box concerned (since it recognizes the flawed packet) but I assume someone is attempting to exploit something. Still trying to get a packet dump (seems dhcpdump doesn't log horribly corrupt packets, so using tcpdump directly). Anyone else seeing this? I think I'm seeing it because the virtual hosting provider has odd DHCP filtering rules *judging by the output
04:54<simonw>of dhcpdump anyway, there is some odd stuff in there that isn't to the broadcast address*

05:18<SynrG>and if, as you say, you're "not that smart", then ... well, i would look for someone out there who has managed to bootstrap debian onto the device and follow their instructions
05:18<hoshi411>SynrG: hmm. how much longer will you be on here today?
05:20<SynrG>well, my workday starts soon. i'm not likely to be much use as a continuing source of help with this particular problem in any case.

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>.

I'd like to have a GUI for this, so i've made one with Glade. Now how do I call my script functions from the GUI? Anyone have good links on how to program with glade+bash? thx

11:37<wojtala>hello everyone. I know it's talk for #debian-next, but there's nobody to help and I wonder if you could. after one upgrade (sid, x86_64) shm stopped working and it's not mounting by itself. I didn't change anything in /etc regarding shm, don't have any idea why it's not working. guess it's a matter of initscripts, but don't know why
11:37<valerie>I run debian squeeze - I have an atheros wifi - if i do iwconfig I can see wlan0 however I cannot see wifi network choice - I try to do ifup wlan0 - any hints ?
11:37-!-troll [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
11:38<wojtala>valerie, maybe modprobe ath9k ?

12:12-!-dirichle1 [~ffurnari@] has joined #debian
12:13<grummund>yes, but that only works if one has edited /etc/sudoers to remove the comment in the first place ;)

12:14<babilen>valerie_: Please show me the output (and your exact commands) -- You can still reinstall ;)
12:14<sney>yeah, the % in front of sudo in /etc/sudoers is not a comment, it denotes 'this is a group
12:15<benjr>sney, if i take a step back to my original intention which was to dedicate the 2 hard drive both to data and not split the partition, cam you recommend relatively cheap solution for finding a place to install the OS to?
12:15<sney>if you remove the % then it is applying sudo rights to a user called 'sudo'
12:16<sney>benjr: some small SSDs are pretty cheap. you can get a debian server OS onto an 8 or 16GB model easily. On the kingston ones you will need to disable ncq but they're still lightning fast compared to conventional drives or flash
12:16<babilen>grummund: Does what sney just said clarify the situation or is it *really* commented?
12:16<grummund>i said "uncomment", not delete the %

14:59<nodiscc>does anyone know if there is a debian-installer image with 3.x kernel?
14:59<nodiscc>the installer's kernel
14:59<babilen>nodiscc: (consider yourself to be lectured on "candle with hair" and "may break and eat your dog")
15:00<babilen>nodiscc: Why do you need it?
15:02<nodiscc>babilen: i have built something interesting ith live-build, however when I try to install the live image to disk using "debian installer launcher" on the desktop, it complains that the running kernel and d-i's one do not match, so it aborts the installation.
15:02<philipp>babilen u gonna tell me how to install the driver now?
15:02<nodiscc>so i was willing to test a 3.x kernel installer
15:02<nodiscc>see if it's stable
15:03<jhutchins_lt>nodiscc: Well no, of course it isn't. Stable is 2.6.39
15:04-!-fmaker [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
15:04<nodiscc>jhutchins_lt: yep, but my other solution is to downgrade my live system to kernel 2.6, which i'm unhappy with (misses serveral drivers i need)
15:04<jhutchins_lt>nodiscc: I don't think kmuto is doing 3.x yet, and it's not backported to stable yet.
15:05<jhutchins_lt>nodiscc: The testing installer is a pretty low priority prior to freeze, so it often doesn't work.
15:06<philipp>so anyone gonna help me to insall this ****** driver?
15:06<babilen>philipp: Clone the repo I mentioned earlier, use get-orig-source in debian/rules to acquire the orig.tar.gz, unpack it, copy debian/ dir in there, install build-dependencies, run dpkg-buildpackage, install build .debs -- Alternatively: Install from nvidia until it hits backports or just be patient. (and no I'll not walk you through this) See <package recompile> <debian/rules> <nmg>

15:49<retrospectacus>it should say "it works!" if apache works
15:49<retrospectacus>then create a php file like test.php in /var/www containing <?php phpinfo(); ?>
15:49<retrospectacus>then browse to http://your.debian.boxs.ip/test.php
15:50<retrospectacus>that will tell you the php version and lots of other stuff
15:50<kop>ismak: write a simple php page that calls php_info(). See the php docs. But really, why not just do a "aptitude show php5" or whatever package is of interest? (Learn to use the package manager.)

17:14<dpkg>Kernel Mode Setting (KMS) has graphical modes initialized by the Linux kernel instead of X. It is hardware dependent, introduced in Linux 2.6.29. Enabled via modprobe as of xserver-xorg-video-intel 2:2.9.1-2 and xserver-xorg-video-radeon 1:6.12.192-2. To disable, edit /etc/modprobe.d/{i915,radeon}-kms.conf or boot with the 'nomodeset' kernel command line parameter.
17:15<kop>Dunno if that helps. I've been dissappointed with KMS and how it makes the console font teensey weensey.
17:15<batouzo>kop: pass video=1024x768 to kernel option, or alike

17:16<kop>batouzo: I'll have to give that a try. If it works I'll file a bts report saying it should be the default. That won't mess up X when it comes up?

17:22<jhutchins_lt>batouzo: The default is hardware dependent, please don't file a bug.
17:22<nevyn>kop: change to the nice sun font ;)
17:23<jhutchins_lt>batouzo: Having the option to change it to whatever you personally like is the good part about linux.
17:23<kop>jhutchins_lt: It's me, not batouzo
17:23<jhutchins_lt>kop: AH, well, anyway.
17:23<kop>jhutchins_lt: Yes.... But a default that's too small to read is silly.
17:24<kop>nevyn: I've not found a font that's large enough.

17:25<retrospectacus>works great for me too :)
17:25<jhutchins_lt>The default is to NOT set it, that works best for the greatest number of possible combinations.

18:03<nodiscc>does anyone know what do orange and amber lights mean on an ethernet card's plug? I can't connect to my router with that particular computer, neither with network-manager nor with simple /etc/init.d/networking. no dhcp offers, and when i set a static ip it fails too
18:03<nodiscc>nothing in dmesg, and it *does work* with other computers, wireless or cable, on the same router
18:04<jhutchins_lt>nodiscc: One of the lights allegedly shows physical connection, the other may show speed or traffic.
18:05<jhutchins_lt>nodiscc: The connection light only checks one pair (out of six) so it's not 100% reliable. Also, the lights don't usually come on if there's no driver loaded.
18:05<jhutchins_lt>nodiscc: Does ifconfig show the interface?
18:05<nodiscc>I remember i had amber and green when it was working. So that dark orange led is worrying, hope it's not a hardware problem
18:05<jhutchins_lt>!network setup
18:05<dpkg>i heard network setup is " or"
18:05<nodiscc>jhutchins_lt: yes it does
18:05<jhutchins_lt>nodiscc: So what's "not working"?
18:06<jhutchins_lt>nodiscc: I don't think I've seen a network port with an "error" light, it's either indicating something positive or it's off.
18:06<nodiscc>jhutchins_lt: first, it does not receive any DHCPOFFER whan i set it to use dhcp. When I use that same router ethernet port and cable on another computer, DHCP works properly
18:07<jhutchins_lt>Is dhclient present and running?

19:53-!-nutron [~dserban@] has joined #debian
19:54<retrospectacus>no. it's quite loud though, like, headphones level, not standard line level

19:56<nevyn>retrospectacus: what's the source?
19:56-!-omry [] has joined #debian
19:56<retrospectacus>nevyn: I don't know, it's coming out of a big rack of equipment that's not mine
19:57<nevyn>retrospectacus: so I'd guess it's line level not mic level
19:57<nevyn>mic level == no power blah blah balh
19:57<nevyn>line level there are 2 standards -10db (used by ordinary household stuff)
19:58<nevyn>and +4db (used by pro gear)
19:58<retrospectacus>it's not mic level. I tested my server using a mic and it worked well. This input is too loud (yes powered). When I installed it and the streaming started, the sound level was good but extremely distorted
19:58<nevyn>so you need to do one of a couple of things
19:58<retrospectacus>lowering the capture level in alsamixer got rid of the distortion but now it's waaaay to quiet
19:58<nevyn>1 switch the micport to line mode rather than mic mode
19:59<nevyn>it'll use the same jack but should be stereo instead of mono and should be better..
19:59<retrospectacus>this card only has the one input jack. Let me see if there is a switch for that
20:00<nevyn>it'll be a software switch in alsamixer
20:00<nevyn>so if you open alsamixer and hit F4 you should be able to select "line" as a source rather than mic
20:00<nevyn>which will re-route the chip and remove the mic preamp
20:00<nevyn>which you don't want

20:32<scraze>ah, good one, I was wondering why alsa-info wasn't in debian but of course it is, just hidden in the sources ;p
20:33<scraze>well, there are both a Mic Capture and Line Capture control, and the Mic Capture one is currently on
20:33<qxt>Need to install virtualbox 64. Yes I have vt-d for the clients. Using a SB 2600. Looking in Synaptic I am not sure what I am looking for is there. I see VB-ose. Since I am on really new hw I am using the wheezy (testing) repos. I need of corse the guest additions and the contrib stuff for USB 2. Am I missing something or is what I am looking for not in the repos?
20:33<nevyn>right which is what I said
20:35<qxt>and yes I have contrib and non-free in my repos for "testing aka wheezy"
20:35<scraze>qxt: I believe you need to get the ext pack outside of the repo, not sure about VT-d; but at least running 64 bit with hardware capabilities works with vb-ose
20:35<nevyn>retrospectacus: so turning on the line capture should turn of mic capture
20:35<scraze>(by which I mean VT-x)
20:36<retrospectacus>when I do that I get no sound at all. The "line" thing in alsamixer doesn't have a slider
20:37<scraze>even when you turn the capture way up?
20:38<nevyn>it shouldn't have a slider.
20:38<nevyn>it's best thougth of as a rotary selector switch between mic, mix, digital and line
20:38<scraze>hmm.. would the Aux level be used when on line instead of mic?
20:38<qxt>scraze with the MSI Z68A GD 55-G3 and the SB 2600 I had vt-d running perfectly on my computer at work.
20:39<nevyn>scraze: there's also aux capture

20:56<nevyn>scraze: the model stuff is supposed to be dead.

20:56-!-jaidormi [] has joined #debian
20:56<scraze>ooh, awesome :)
20:56<nevyn>the problem is..
20:57<nevyn>there's two bits to a HDA device the "card" and the codec
20:57<nevyn>the card is part of the southbridge.
20:57<nevyn>the codec is the chip that turns digital stuff into analog signals
20:58<nevyn>however the configuration of codec's is not fixed and software redefinable (they work like a software reconfigurable matrix switch aiui
20:58<nevyn>so the whole architecture is reasonably complicated
20:59-!-jet_ [] has joined #debian
20:59<nevyn>so the bios/acpi tables are supposed to tell the driver.. "this pin of the codec is connected to the blue/green/pink/black jack tip/ring/sleave)
20:59<nevyn>but because windows doesn't use this data (see mjg's blog for the efficacsy of standards that windows doesn't use) and vendors ship drivers the data is junk

21:01<scraze>:] that's truely horrible.
21:01<scraze>do pciids overlap as well?
21:02<nevyn>so the pciid is only half the story with HDA
21:02<nevyn>because lots of the nasty detail particularly of controls is in the codec not the "device"

21:54<cwood>Well, did before it crapped out and now I'm seeing what newer hardware will run Debian. Heh.
21:54<zZGz>He played it all day and he got stuck at the second boss
21:55<zZGz>(I think it was second) and he just stopped.
21:55<nevyn>benjr: laugh when you can get a score bigger than 50k
21:55*babilen recommends #debian-offtopic
21:55<zZGz>Technically we are on topic
21:55<zZGz>at first
21:56<benjr>nevyn, oh not laughing at you, laughing is supprise and delight, i assume it stood for some new military FPS, i love RUa :)

21:57<sney>cwood: the only things you _really_ need to watch out for are NIC and GPU hardware. nearly everything else is supported out of the box.

21:57<cwood>Thanks, seems to be where I'm heading.
21:58<sney>pretty much any GPU can be made to work but with varying degrees of non-free; some NICs barely work at all

22:00<zZGz>I changed the font to moon spaces.
22:00<zZGz>Never again.
22:07<benjr>sney, speaking of which, i just installed something earlier and noticed tree warning's like this at the end "W: Possible missing firmware /lib/firmware/rtl_nic/rtl8105e-1.fw for module r8169"
22:08<benjr>my nic seems to working, im using it right now, i wasnt too concerned
22:08<cwood>With or without the firmware-linux packages installed?
22:08<sney>benjr: there are some variants of the r8169 that actually need the firmware files. if yours is working fine, you don't need it
22:08<sney>I think it's limited to some higher end server NICs or something
22:08<cwood>That file is apparently in the firmware-realtek package.
22:09<sney>it's only required if the NIC won't work without it .
22:09<benjr>mines just an integrated thing on a mid-range asus board
22:09<sney>it's not like the radeon firmware thing where you get half functionality. it works or it doesn't

22:25<batouzo>can I just install 3.1.4 kernel on debian squeeze?
22:25<batouzo>and it should work overall? or do I need to upgrade libc and all programs or something
22:26<cwood>Not that I've been there, but allegedly many things rely on a kernel version starting with 2.6.
22:26<batouzo>oh right, skipping that silly problem (I use very few apps and I just count on avoiding that)
22:26<batouzo>other then that, it should?
22:27<cwood>Um, try it and see?
22:27<batouzo>btw, how to include nano text edutor into my initramfs (e.g. btw of grup-update?)
22:27<batouzo>it would make unfucking things much easier, if need arises
22:28<cwood>Can't you already edit grub lines in grub?
22:28<cwood>On the other hand, if you're dead set on the idea, look at how you build initrd and put your nano+libs in there.
22:28<batouzo>I can, by the problem is to include more programs in the initramfs image
22:29<batouzo>so I can use editor in rescue shell even if / partition is not accessible
22:29<jordanm>Bucciarati: busybox has vi builtin
22:29<batouzo>it has now? oh
22:29<batouzo>but overall is there easy, debian way of suplementing initramfs with small programs? other then manual unpack/repack which is not debian way probaly
22:30<cwood>It's your initramfs -- it's there to provide just enough to get your boot process started.
22:30<cwood>You're better off getting a grub disk and some live dvd's to unplug issue.s
