01:49<sney>techno-geek: no experience with the libre kernel, but the debian squeeze kernel includes the patch information detailed at
01:50<sney>'libre' sounds like a hard-and-fast removal of possibly non-free elements so it is probably similar to the Debian one
01:50<sney>debian's kernel is extremely modular though. if anything can be built as a module without endangering compatibility, it is.
01:50<sney>that way unneccessary device drivers are not loaded
01:51<techno-geek>sney: The libre kernel takes the standard kernel and strips all non-free portions out of it. It sound like squeeze does the exact same thing now
01:52<sney>yes, removing anything non-free is a standard part of the debian policy
01:52<sney>they're still made available in the non-free repositories, but you have to voluntarily look for them
01:53<techno-geek>And is that honestly the only reason why the FSF chooses to not accept it as a true GNU/Linux distro?
01:53<techno-geek>thats silly
01:53<sney>I'm not familiar with the FSF's motives other than they asked a sysadmin friend of mine to picket an apple store
01:53<sney>so I think they are probably at least partially insane
01:54<sney>I don't mess around with computer politics, I've just been a debian user since 2000
01:55<techno-geek>sney: Will I feel any pain coming from a bleeding edge distro such as Arch? The packages look quite old

01:55-!-elmejor [~luis@] has left #debian []
01:55<sney>techno-geek: if you have sufficient experience debugging arch, you would probably survive testing aka "wheezy"
01:55<sney>which is rather current
01:56<sney>well, so long as you're not a gnome user. gnome 3 in wheezy is currently not good
01:57<sney>stable is the release for production systems. it's intended so it can be deployed and not really looked at except in the case of security updates. it's good for people who want to use their computer without actively maintaining it.
01:57<techno-geek>I use awesome and slim
01:57<techno-geek>not a huge fan of bloat
01:58<sney>testing will eventually be released as the next stable, but until then it's a continually updated test platform of newer versions of software. it's geared towards bug hunting and finding combinations that work.
01:58<sney>I'm a testing user on my personal systems but anything I deploy for other people - e.g. servers - is stable.
01:58<techno-geek>that makes sense. testing sounds like a scary word, but its not that bad for a desktop box? I'd be using it for work
01:59<sney>as long as you don't mind occasionally opening the hood to fix things, you'll be fine. there's even a dedicated support channel - #debian-next
02:00<sney>coming from arch you'll just have to get used to apt and having sysvinit instead of BSD init
02:00<sney>there's copious documentation on both
02:01<techno-geek>I've used Ubuntu quite extensively in the past, before it sucked
02:01<sney>old people like me would argue there never was such a time, but okay.
02:02<sney>just a word of advice
02:02<sney>instead of using the testing installer, which is still kind of wonky, it's best if you install just the base stable system and then switch your sources to wheezy and upgrade
02:03-!-veram [~veram@] has joined #debian
02:03<techno-geek>so install squeeze and then dist-upgrade?
02:03-!-nautics-lap [] has joined #debian
02:03-!-NormalBoy [] has joined #debian
02:03-!-NormalBoy [] has quit []
02:04<sney>dpkg: squeeze->wheezy
02:04<dpkg>First, understand that testing is a pre-release distribution without timely security support and that you will have a bumpy ride; ask me about <moving target> <testing> <testing security>. From /etc/apt/sources.list, remove stable-specific lines like squeeze-updates and backports, and change squeeze to wheezy. apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade. If you feel you need more instructions, perhaps you should wait a while.
02:04<sney>that's what the robot says.
02:04<techno-geek>sney: thanks for your assistance. I really appreciate it :)
02:05<sney>techno-geek: no problem!

02:29<techno-geek>qdb: this isn't #ubuntu
02:29<qdb>techno-geek, do not troll :|
02:29<techno-geek>I am not. But I dont see how you can expect a debian chat room to support ubuntu issues
02:30<qdb>techno-geek, ip addresses work , i can set dns ips in debian, so i need to configure debian

02:43<qdb>are you sure that prepend domain name .... in /etc/dhcp/dhclient.conf should not work ? does not this mean that dhcp installed in debian? does not it run already? i have installed dnsmasq in ubuntu but do not know whether it works. and inet worked without dnsmasq. i only need to set dns ips in client. i have read man 5 interfaces, there is not described how to write dns ips

06:31<jasonsmr>what I mean by that is isnt the directory automaticaly in the path = /usr/src
06:31<cthuluh>how would we know?
06:31<jasonsmr>I placed a script of mine in this directory and well its not being called up on calling its name
06:32<cthuluh>/usr/src isn't in the debian default PATH (and I hope it will stay so)
06:32<jasonsmr>well for instance when I type whereis my_script
06:32<cthuluh>try /usr/local/bin
06:32<cthuluh>or ~/bin, even
06:32<jasonsmr>it tells me where ist installed to (Properly)) /usr/src/my_script
06:33<jasonsmr>so that how ((I)) know that the sytem has it in ath
06:33<cthuluh>echo "$PATH"
06:33<jasonsmr>yes sir your correct it is not* in the path
06:34<jasonsmr>sbin is not there ?

06:34<jasonsmr>strange that its not?
06:34<jasonsmr>bin and /usr/bin are though
06:35<weasel>you shouldn't place things in /bin or /usr/bin
06:35<weasel>these things belong to the packaging system
06:35<weasel>/usr/local/bin or ~/bin are your places

07:32<batouzo>valdyn: hmm mandircolors doesnt tell me what file it loads...
07:33<valdyn>batouzo: it doesnt load a specific one
07:33<valdyn>batouzo: "grep dircolors ~/.bashrc" contains the info though
07:33<batouzo>well then I have to edit the dircolor command in every user's home directory?
07:33<weasel>eek. nice one.
07:34<batouzo>editing every user's bashrc is ok if there is not common other solution then
07:34<valdyn>batouzo: i meant it does not load a specific one by default, but it is or has to be specified on command line, so all you need is in the output of that grep command
07:35<batouzo>valdyn: by default it is only `eval dircolors` .. man says dircolors includes build-in precompiled default
07:36<valdyn>batouzo: yea, just noticed, I have an older .bashrc lieing around that shows something little different
07:38<pmarc>valdyn, thanks. issue solved.
07:39<valdyn>batouzo: as far as i can see the default will use built in values
07:40<valdyn>batouzo: so you wont get around editing everyones .bashrc or setting everyonse .dircolors

11:18<sney>in fact I'm pretty sure I used the 6.0.3 netinst when I got my SSD a few weeks ago and initramfs-tools installed fine along with everything else

13:53-!-chasckbv [~chasckbv@] has joined #debian
13:54<nodiscc>do we have a graphical frontend for hardware/device management in debian? Something like gnome-device-manager, but with modprobe/rmmod capabilities
13:57<nodiscc>I had to guide a friend through the installation of an E-MU soundcard. Installing firmwares was the easy part, because I had a script for that, but then I had to explain him how to disable the integrated sound card through /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
13:57<nodiscc>that was painful and he eventually didn't make it. So I was wondering if there's an interface for end users to do this

14:03<cahoot>I'd suggest a custom file put into /etc/modprobe.d/alsa<base?>
14:05<nodiscc>cahoot: so, if i want to disable my integrated intel soundcard, something in /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-disable-intel.conf
14:06<nodiscc>options snd-hda-intel index=-2

14:14<Nik05>guys how is that filed called where all partions are listed that need to be mounted at startup?
14:14<Nik05>i had a partition that was fine all the time, but today only root can access it :S
14:15<Nik05>i cave hem ntfs defaults 0 0 is that correct?
14:15<Nik05>or is that the reason i can only access it with root?
14:16<nodiscc>thinking about fstab, can gnome-disk-utility edit it? e.g. set permanent mount points ?
14:16<nodiscc>Nik05: can you paste the full line ?

14:19<nodiscc>your fstab line looks correct, maybe you have to be in the fuse group ?
14:19<nodiscc>i'm just guessing

14:22<nodiscc>Nik05: smartmotools
14:22<Nik05>yes its a partition made by windows 7

14:23<nodiscc>Nik05: cahoot is right, unmount/remount the partition while looking at dmesg. You'll see errors if they happen
14:23<Nik05>what is dmesg?
14:24<dpkg>dmesg is used to examine or control the kernel ring buffer. /var/log/dmesg gives you the whole thing from boot time. `dmesg' shows you current ring buffer contents.
14:24<Nik05>right :p
14:25<Nik05>i just umound /mnt/datadisk

17:45<gnugr>victor_uva: debian stable-squeeze is the best you can have, for me, and with backports you can get kernel 2.6.39 to have all oyu want.
17:45-!-simonlnu [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
17:47<victor_uva>gnugr: in fact, this is what I have currently: debian stable with some packages from backports (linux kernel 2.6.39 to solve a sound problem and the packages for the graphic card)
17:47<supaman>victor_uva: you can try to add testing to your sources.list and do aptitude -t testing install python-wxgtk2.8 and see if it wants to fetch way to many packages

17:48<scraze>daemonkeeper: I suppose 'sync' is automatically executed at shutdown.. if so then I can't imagine anything other than that something is overwriting the relevant sections in the filesystem at boot :S?
17:49<supaman>victor_uva: and just say no to the install if you dont like the looks of it and remove testing from sources.list again

17:52<scraze>daemonkeeper: of course :] but the changes to the filesystem still have to be written to the LVM partition, and I suppose the query for blocksize confirms that it has been successfully written - iirc dumpe2fs reads directly from the partition - right ?
17:52<victor_uva>if I write "supaman, gnugr:" will you both receive that I have mentioned you?
17:53<supaman>victor_uva: that depends on our irc clients, personally I use irssi, dont know if that will recognise it (I think it will)
17:53<daemonkeeper>scraze: Yes, it does. But a sync is executed automatically these days where needed. Also, I am not really rebooting. The LVM volume is used in a virtual machine.

18:01<victor_uva>as the console gave that "python-wxgtk2.8" was being ignored and paid attention in "wxwidgets2.8" instead, I tried to backport wxwidgets2.8 (it's a set of packages in sid); I did build-dep and saw all the dependencies problems (the command didn't solve the problems, so I installed the necessary packages manually)
18:01<victor_uva>after that, I tried to get source for wxwidgets2.8

18:09<supaman>victor_uva: where did you get the source from? what did you use to run this compilation?
18:09<victor_uva>now build-dep says that anything more is needed
18:10<victor_uva>nothing more*
18:10<gnugr>victor_uva:to have these packages in sources.list, even temporary, backports and squeeze/updates must be removed, not to hit to echother
18:10<victor_uva>so in my sources.list do I only have the deb-src for sid and nothing else?
18:11<victor_uva>do I comment all the lines but this one? including the deb lines?

18:12<victor_uva>yes, this is what I was thinking
18:12<victor_uva>so now the following step is doing "apt-get -b source wxwidgets2.8", isn't it?

Be that as it may, I'm busy now so good luck.

18:34<jmux>victor_uva: FYI: the build error results from the multi-arch packaging, which is not supported in squeeze. It's not a dependency problem! from debian/rules: "cd $(objdir_gtk_shared)/lib && ln -s . $(DEB_HOST_MULTIARCH)"

18:35<victor_uva>jmux: and does it have any solution? or is the only solution for me to migrate to testing?
18:35<jmux>victor_uva: for squeeze $(DEB_HOST_MULTIARCH) is empty - that's why "ln -s ." gives you the error. For backporting to squeeze you need to fix the "$(DEB_HOST_MULTIARCH)" problems.

19:53<kcw>hi all. question: when i was using ubuntu, during bootup, busybox allowed me to attach a file to a loop device (/dev/loop0). the loop devices appear to not exist in squeeze. should i be using mknod to create them, or is there a way to configure initramfs or something to create the loop devices?

20:04<scraze>the packages in squeeze are perhaps a little dated, but there are updates for certain packages available in squeeze's backport, updates, and security repository; also if you really want to you can indeed go from stable to testing after install, in fact that method iirc is recommended over using a testing installer iso

21:23<metaspike>however, i have a dual core machine and ive noticed that qemu insists on using a single core, and the obvious settings dont seem to have any effect on this, it's as though qemu where using a single thread. any ideas?

21:57<deansu>hoshi411: the terminal has to support it, if you would like an example of a terminal that does, rxvt-unicode is what I use
21:57<scraze>hoshi411: if your locales is set to C (check echo $LANG) it's not supporting utf-8
21:57<hoshi411>now that you mention that, ive noticed that whensaving files in leafpad, it chooses something other than utf8 as the default
21:57<ml|>I use rxvt-unicode as well
21:59<sney>lxterminal supports utf8.
21:59<hoshi411>installing rxvt unicode now
21:59<hoshi411>i know lxterminal does support utf8 though because i have used it in the past for japanese
21:59<hoshi411>but im sure there s some option i need to put in my bashrc or something
22:00<hoshi411>or some utf8 package i need to install
22:00<sney>you need fonts
22:00<sney>and a utf8 locale
22:00<hoshi411>or some setting im missing
22:00<hoshi411>sney: i have the base japanese fonts
22:00<hoshi411>i probly need that locale

22:16-!-bst_ [] has left #debian []
22:16<scraze>xplode: run john on a directory? I thought it was supposed to be used on password files (ie /etc/shadow)
22:16<deansu>sounds like he has compiled it
22:17<xplode>let me explain myself better
22:17<xplode>I have john compiled and ready to use in my home directory
22:17<deansu>is there any reason you arn't using the package in the debian archives?
22:17<xplode>but I have to go to /home/john inorder to invoke the command
22:18<scraze>deansu: good catch :]
22:18<xplode>because the package for the john repositorie is and older version
22:18<xplode>that's why
22:18<xplode>I i compiled the new version
22:19<xplode>i'm trying to get it to run directly from the cmdline without haveing to cd into it directory and without copying the files to /bin
22:19<deansu>put it in ~/bin, add ~/bin to your $PATH
22:19<xplode>I tried using a symlink to /bin but it still says command not found
22:19<scraze>you can go about this in different ways, I like to make a ~/bin/ and then load that into the bash env PATH in ~/.profile, but you can also create a symlink from /usr/local/bin/john to /home/john/[..]
22:20-!-Guest20037 [~paul@] has quit [Quit: Konversation terminated!]
22:20<xplode>I c
22:20<xplode>i'll try that out
22:21<xplode>well before I try that this is what I did
22:21<xplode>I added it to /bin then created a symlink to /home/john
22:22<xplode>then changed my $PATH
22:22<xplode>and it still said command not found
22:23<scraze>normally it's best not to touch /bin, /sbin, /usr/bin or /usr/sbin and use the /usr/local/ equivalents instead; you can check whether a symlink is pointing correctly towards your file by doing readlink -f /path/to/symlink, so for instance readlink -f /usr/local/bin/john should read /home/john
22:24<scraze>btw, is john really at /home/john ? that seems like a bad place for a binary :]
22:24-!-techno-geek [] has left #debian []

22:26<scraze>a directory in /home/ is fine, but it should belong to a user, as /home/ is intended for the directories of users (their 'home'); john doesn't need a user so it also doesn't need a directory in /home/, the convention is to place it in your own home in the subdir bin (which doesn't exist by default)

22:28<xplode>to /home/xplode/john
22:28<xplode>or vise versa
22:28<gamambel>if you copy it to /usr/local/bin , you don't need a symlink
22:28<xplode>gotcha thinks
22:28<kcw>i think debian and ubuntu have scripts that run when you login that will include /home/<user>/bin
22:28<scraze>the abbreviation ~/john would be correct as ~ expands to /home/explode/, but /home/ itself is not used as a shorthand for /home/explode/ normally (that is, you're the first I've seen doing it :])
22:28<kcw>i just have a bin folder right in my user's home
22:29<gamambel>you can however put a symbolic link INTO /usr/local/bin that points to john in your home directory
22:29-!-lionel [] has joined #debian

23:30<indy>Hi all, after installing squeeze I'm unable to access my hardware raid drive. The os was installed on a separate drive, but this "os" drive is now the only one visible under "computer" I can see my raid drive in "disktools" just not sure how to make it accessible:/ Any quick hints? ..I'm quite new to debian and might have overlooked something maby:/

23:49<indy>hi there, no it's hardware raid
23:50<indy>thaht's why I thought it should be independent. And just show up as a hdd as it did before, even If I insatlled a new os (on a separate disk ofcourse, not connected to the raid station)

23:53<indy>I'm able to see it in the "disk tools" system tool, just not sure how/if I can make it show up as a normal disk in the system files
