00:44<brianw>hm, i'm running Stable and when I tried to install libopenssl-ruby1.8 it tossed this at me...
00:44|-|koou [] has quit [Quit: Saliendo]
00:44|-|schue [] has joined #debian
00:44<brianw> libopenssl-ruby1.8: Depends: libruby1.8 (>= 1.8.5) but it is not going to be installed
00:44|-|schue_ [] has joined #debian
00:44<brianw>I have this installed: ii libruby1.8 1.8.6-2 Libraries necessary to run Ruby 1.8
00:44<brianw>shouldn't that satisfy the dependancy?
00:45<jm_>yes, but that's likely not the problem
00:45<brianw>why would it tell me about that unmet dependancy if it's not the problem?
00:45<brianw>and where shoudl I start looking to figure out this hidden problem?
00:45<jm_>where do you see it saying unmet dependencies?
00:46<jm_>try apt* install libopenssl-ruby1.8
00:46<brianw>apt-get install libopenssl-ruby1.8
00:46<brianw>The following packages have unmet dependencies.
00:46<brianw> libopenssl-ruby1.8: Depends: libruby1.8 (>= 1.8.5) but it is not going to be installed
00:46<brianw>skipped a few lines that don't have errors, just info.
00:46<brianw>did that.
00:46<brianw>even straight install with dpkg fails it.
00:47<brianw>aptitude, apt-get both fail.
00:47<brianw>and that's all I ever see error wise.
00:48<jm_>huh, either I am blind or something weird is going on - dpkg has version check option, try using that
00:48<brianw>exactly. :)
00:48<brianw>ok, how?
00:48|-|P1R0 [piro@] has left #debian [Saliendo]
00:48<jm_>apt-get -V also reports versions
00:49[~]mjk should get a girl-friend. ;-)
00:49<brianw>ahha new error when I added libruby1.8
00:49<brianw>The following packages have unmet dependencies.
00:49<brianw> libruby1.8: Conflicts: libopenssl-ruby1.8 (< 1.8.6) but 1.8.5-4 is to be installed
00:49<jm_>ahh heh
00:50<jm_>I always forget one has to check in the other direction too
00:50<brianw>now why wouldn't it tell me about this conflict?
00:50<brianw>and even better, why is there such a lovely conflict within Stable? :)
00:51<keren>jm_ you said you know of a dyndns client that web checks for the ip?
00:51<azeem_>brianw: because you've got libruby1.8 from testing
00:51<azeem_>libruby1.8 | 1.8.5-4 | stable | alpha, amd64, arm, hppa, i386, ia64, mips, mipsel, powerpc, s390, sparc
00:51|-|azeem_ changed nick to azeem
00:51<jm_>keren: there are ez-ipupdate and no-ip
00:51<brianw>ah, I wonder how that happened.
00:51<jm_>brianw: libopenssl-ruby1.8 in stable is 1.8.5-4
00:51<brianw>oh, I know. I had both listed with preference for stable a month or two ago.
00:51<jm_>ahh yes, already mentioned
00:52<brianw>I needed a newer lib from testing at the time.
00:52|-|blaheva [] has joined #debian
00:52<brianw>it must have triggered the upgrade on libruby 8-P
00:52<azeem>what does "dpkg -l libc6 | tail -1" say?
00:52<jm_>but yeah, error reporting should be expand with regards to conflicts
00:52|-|JoY [~JoY@] has joined #debian
00:52<azeem>brianw: that's testing as well
00:53<brianw>thought so.
00:53<brianw>I must have fscked up on setting dist preference.
00:53<brianw>it was when I installed mono.
00:53<brianw>stable was barfing all over a C# app I was trying to get to work.
00:53<brianw>I spose I may as well just sit on testing then. 8-P
00:56|-|madrescher [] has joined #debian
00:56<k-man>can you get dual cpu motherboards and put dual core cpus in them to get 4 cores?
00:57|-|madrescher [] has left #debian []
00:57<mjk>k-man: Sure.
00:57<brianw>k-man, amd? yes, 4x4 platform only.
00:57<k-man>yeah, i'd prefer amd
00:57<jm_>k-man: sure, look at AMD 4x4 or Intel V8 stuff (that's octo-core then I suppose)
00:57<k-man>but what about intel?
00:57<brianw>intel takes the extreme core-2 and of course opterons and xeons can do it.
00:57<k-man>ooh... octo?
00:57|-|madroach [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
00:58|-|Dargor [] has joined #debian
00:59<k-man>so... which mb should I get to put 2 dual core amd cpus in it?
00:59<keren>a brave mobo
01:00<brianw>there aren't that many.
01:00<brianw>check toms hardware for reviews
01:00<k-man>thats annoying
01:00<k-man>ah, good idea
01:00<brianw>well it's really just opterons in disguise as desktop cpus from what I hear (total rumor)
01:01<Dargor>hi all, how do i use iptables when destination ip changes. eg my adsl gateway, the isp assigned ip.
01:01<jm_>use iptables for what?
01:01<k-man>im just wondering about the cost benefit of getting a 4 port co-processed raid card vs getting more cpu grunt and doing software raid
01:01<k-man>a 3ware 4 port sata raide card costs around AU$650 here
01:01<Dargor>i want to forward port 2222 to 22 because 22 is blocked at school
01:02<jm_>why do you care abotu IP then?
01:03<Dargor>umm, i think i need to, "iptables -A FORWARD -p tcp -s 0/0 --dport 22 -p tcp -d [my ip] --dport 22 -j ACCEPT"
01:03<Dargor>is there an easyer way
01:04<brianw>I gave up using iptables directly finally.
01:04<brianw>shorewall made that fairly easy to do reliably.'
01:04<jm_>Dargor: well you could simply omit -d myip, alternatively, depending on how you connect set it up after the connection is established with specific IP
01:05<keren>Dargor: iptables doesn't survive a reboot unless you set it up to do so. theres a howto in i think
01:06<Dargor>wait, wont -d work?
01:07<Dargor>whys that
01:07<jm_>because it won't match remote connection attempts
01:07<Dargor>i could set the interface
01:08<brianw>the DNAT needs to be if you are shooting for locahost.
01:08<brianw>not the original destination match
01:08|-|leiv [~leiv@] has left #debian [Konversation terminated!]
01:09<brianw>but if the machine is the original target IP, then you dont' need to specify the IP portion of the dnat, jsut the port.
01:09<brianw>I think.
01:09<brianw>heh, too damn confusing even though i've used it since it came out. 8-P
01:09<jm_>-d is there so it only does this for attempts sent specific to your machine - do you even get anything else?

01:56<vortek>yeh i am
01:56<vortek>not sure if it will do what i want to
01:57<vortek>using the net as source to build cd
01:57<keren>it just downloads packages and puts them into place inside the iso
01:57|-|Eulex [~alex@] has joined #debian
01:57|-|keren changed nick to DawnLight
01:58<vortek>i was looking to build an instalation cd with all the wireless drivers pre included
01:58<vortek>er wireless tools
01:58<DawnLight>so you could netinst via wireless?
01:58<vortek>so i dont have to install then mount another partition with the files on them i need for my wireless stuff
01:59<vortek>wireless dont work defualt
01:59<vortek>have to use ndiswrappers
01:59<vortek>so im hoping i can use a netinstall for that
01:59<vortek>then copy over ndiswrapers and hope theres no depend problems
02:00<DawnLight>if you have enough bandwidth, perhaps download three dvds and you'll have much to work with

02:00<vortek>i got 6 meg down
02:00<vortek>but most mirrors i can only get 2meg
02:01<vortek>well 8 meg down
02:01<DawnLight>try torrent
02:01<DawnLight>is jigdo stable yet?
02:03<tupa>DawnLight it's pretty stable, used it myself
02:04<DawnLight>i've had bad luck with it. it wouldn't download one last package
02:05<blarson>I've used jigdo many times, works fine.
02:07<blarson>The main thing I dislike about it is its inablility to handle local partial mirrors properly.
02:07<blarson>So I have to run it on the mirror where the files are local, rather than elsewhere on my home net.

03:27<DawnLight>will anyone look at my interfaces file, i seem to be doing something wrong
03:29<mjk>dpkg's factoid for "aes" states "Twofish should have won, or very weak," -- does that mean that twofish is the "best" (w/ regard to security) cryptographic algorithm for disk encryption in Linux? Or should I use serpent?
03:30<gsimmons>DawnLight: Where is 'inadyn' located in your filesystem?
03:32<DawnLight>gsimmons: how do i find out?
03:35<gsimmons>DawnLight: Ah, you're using the 'inadyn' package? It would be in /usr/sbin then. I had thought your post-up command wasn't in the command search path (as described in interfaces(5)).
03:36|-|grumpf`stage [] has quit [Quit: bye, thanx for the help :)]
03:37<DawnLight>gsimmons: so should i use the full path in post-up?

03:38<DawnLight>gsimmons: so why isn't it working? can i see a verbose of what /etc/init.d/networking restart is doing?

03:47<jm_>ifup has -v switch
03:47<DawnLight>i'll try
03:48<DawnLight>is there a difference between "auto" and allow-hotplug?
03:50<DawnLight>what is allow-hotplug anyway?
03:50<DawnLight>bring up the device when the cable is connected?
03:50<jm_>it allows subsystems to call ifup --allow=hotplug
03:51<DawnLight>so maybe i have to have allow-auto or just auto to use the post-up/pre-down/... things
03:51<jm_>yeah try that

Buzz(1.1; 1996-03-14), Rex(1.2; 1996-10-28), Bo(1.3; 1997-05-01), Hamm(2.0; 1998-07-24), Slink(2.1; 1999-03-09), Potato(2.2; 2000-08-15), Woody(3.0; 2002-07-19), Sarge(3.1; 2005-06-06) and Etch (4.0; 2007-03-08). The next release will be lenny. See also <>.
05:14<jm_>Slink actually

05:15<mjk>jm_: Ah okay.
05:15<jm_>i.e. it was meant to work on 386 but it featured some stuff that apparently doesn't
05:15<jm_>if my memory serves me well
05:16<mjk>I see ... well, can't remember, either, and I do /not/ want to run a modern Unix on a 386, not even my 386DX-40.

05:20<faderhval>nope :) i installed a package that came with apache2 server and now i cant find the htdocs folder :S
05:20<jm_>that's normal - there are no folders on Unix filesystems
05:21<mjk>faderhval: 1) find, 2) dpkg -L <package> lists all files inside a package.
05:21<MoDaX>faderhval: /var/www
05:21<mjk>jm_: Although I don't use the term "folder" for Unix: Is there a difference between folder and directory?
05:21|-|SS2 [] has joined #debian
05:22<valdyn>mjk: its a metaphor for 'directory' that is not used in unix
05:22<mjk>lawnninja: Lock files prevent multiple applications writing to the same file simultaneously.
05:22<mjk>valdyn: That's exactly what I thought.
05:23<lawnninja>mjk: is there a way to remove them? apache doesn't seem to wanna start back up
05:23<jm_>mjk: well there are mail folders (it's supposed to be a "joke" anyway)
05:23<mjk>valdyn: Like "forum" is never used for Usenet and "room" isn't used for IRC.
05:24<mjk>lawnninja: You could remove them with "rm <name of lock file>", but you should be sure that no process uses that file currently. (fuser -v <name of lock file>)
05:24<MoDaX>konqueror lets you "create new folder...". these terms are synonyms, folder being more newbie friendly maybe
05:24<faderhval>hmm... must be doing something wrong it just outputs no such fileor catalouge
05:24<mjk>lawnninja: Hm, although fuser is not a good way to find out if the lock file is used by a process.
05:24<lawnninja>mjk: it looks like it locked all the config files in the apache2 dir including the ones in the folders
05:25<lawnninja>so rm on each one would take a really long time
05:25<bl0ck>how can i prevent the use of the php mail function for sending spam
05:25<mjk>lawnninja: "find -iname .lock | xargs rm" -- but be sure to have a backup. No liability assumed.
05:26<bl0ck>are there any options in the php.ini i can use?
05:26<bl0ck>the problem comes always from buggie php scripts used on webhosting servers
05:26<bl0ck>is it possible to restrict the count of "to" "cc" "bcc"

08:51<valdyn>masteraccurate: you cant be serious
08:51<sep>masteraccurate, most likely the deamon you install in woody wont work in etch becouse of newer kernels and libc
08:52<masteraccurate>not only rpm.. .but it was one of the problems i had with the installation
08:52|-|madroach [] has joined #debian
08:52<masteraccurate>thats no problem.. i wanne upgrade the deamons too
08:52<masteraccurate>and kernels too
08:52<masteraccurate>one step by one... not all at once
08:52<sep>masteraccurate, then why not just install etch, then install the deamons. you make no sense at all
08:53<Kilwest>i appear to have broken my apache2 install - i did "apt-get remove php5-cli" because i only want to run php4, i reloaded the required packages but now i can't browse to the web server, although it is running
08:53<Eulex>... at least he gets practice upgrading debian ...
08:53<masteraccurate>... ok.. think some time back: when woody was newest version....
08:53<masteraccurate>it was all working fine...
08:53<sep>masteraccurate, and you have not yet stated your problem with etch (that works on woody)
08:53<sep>masteraccurate, define "all"
08:53<masteraccurate>after it sarge was coming... i was upgrading my own server.. it was all fine...
08:53<sep>masteraccurate, again define "all"
08:54<masteraccurate>after that is now etch.. i was upgrading my own server.. and all works at best
08:54<masteraccurate>only with etch it do not works so fine
08:54[~]JasonS thinks masteraccurate should live up to thier nick more :)
08:54<sep>what is "it"
08:54<stew>masteraccurate: exactly what doesn't work? and how does it not work? do you get an error message?
08:54<masteraccurate>it: my system (debian system)
08:55[~]sep thinks masteraccurate is a troll. and goes home for dinner.
08:55<stew>masteraccurate: what about it doesn't work?
08:55<masteraccurate>uff.. its some time ago.. i just dont know what
08:55<sep>!don't work
08:55<dpkg>Look buddy, "doesn't work" is an ambiguous statement. Does it sit on the couch all day long? Does it procrastinate doing the dishes? Does it beg on the street for change? Please be specific! Define 'it' and what it isn't doing. Give us more details so we can help you without needing to ask basic questions like "what's the error message".
08:55<Kilwest>is there anything more than the apache2 package i need to install?
08:55<masteraccurate>but there are many things
08:56<stew>masteraccurate: we need specifics if you want us to help you
08:56<masteraccurate>i wannte do some tests at home with my older servers.. than i can tell you.. but not now
08:56<valdyn>Kilwest: what is 'browse the webserver' ? You mean host/index.html, or some php or what?
08:56<Kilwest>hi valdyn: yes when i browse to it's IP it just 404's me
08:57<masteraccurate>i have to work now for money so that the server here wanne work at best and not with security problems aso.
08:57<valdyn>Kilwest: so there's no index.html
08:57<Kilwest>it was working before i started removing php5

15:13<tcsetattr>if the file doesn't tell you its format, you basically have to guess.
15:14<tcsetattr>you can possibly rule out some possibilities - if it contains bytes or sequences that are meaningless in UTF-8 then it's not UTF-8

15:20<ranix>the encoding is in the first 8 bytes of the file IIRC

15:23<ranix>there's a human element involved
15:23<[meme]>I just downloaded the file:
15:24<[meme]>And !!!!!
15:24<tcsetattr>with a name like UTF-8-demo.txt, I'd expect it to be in utf8
15:24<razor950>whats the best way to install the nvidia drivers? I was used to the module system but that seems to be gone and in 2.6.21 kernels there seems to be a guide but not for 64 bit users it seems
15:24<[meme]>manuel@eagle:~$ file -i UTF-8-demo.txt
15:24<[meme]>UTF-8-demo.txt: text/plain; charset=utf-8
15:24<[meme]>Will give me the correct answer!!!!! :-)
15:25<[meme]>The problem is in the wep.txt file!!!!! :-(
15:25<[meme]>it is not UTF8 for sure!
15:25<Hessophanes>And what makes you believe that wep.txt is not plain ascii, as file says?
15:25<tcsetattr>you whine too much. GIve us a copy of the wep.txt file
15:25<Hessophanes>If wep0.txt was already plain ascii, your iconv command won't have changed a single bit.

15:26<[meme]>wep_utf8.txt: text/plain; charset=us-ascii
15:26<Hessophanes>As expected.
15:27<jla>maybe I'm not having an apt-proxy problem. I wget & Release.gpg, and gpg --verify Release.gpg Release and that says the sig is bad
15:27<tcsetattr>you are way to freakin obsessed with iconv and file. Are you trying to solve an actual _problem_? is the file not readable to you with less?
15:27<Hessophanes>ASCII is a subset of utf8, and file will report the best match (the smallest subset) it can find.
15:27<jla>but when I put in the apt/sources to be instead of my proxy it doesn't complain.
15:27<[meme]>[hesso] perhaps you are correct!!!!

18:02<dpkg>extra, extra, read all about it, xsession is ~/.xsession is used for both XDM and 'startx', when there's no ~/.xinitrc. [See: startx(1)], or best initialized as `echo -e "#! /bin/sh\nsource $HOME/.bash_profile\nsource $HOME/.xinitrc" >$HOME/.xsession', or see this URL for some other tips:
18:03[~]streuner hopes that factoid "WM" isnt totally fucked up...
18:03<dpkg>from memory, window manager is a special class of X applications which decorates and manages windows for the X server. to list your available window managers, run "apt-cache showpkg x-window-manager". not to be confused with a <desktop environment> such as Gnome or KDE. to set your system-wide default window manager, use "update-alternatives --config x-window-manager".
18:03<witte>faderhval: probably you want to install gdm and xfdesktop4

18:51<Samooka>witte: and all of a sudden, the soundcard stopped working
18:52<Samooka>witte: the strange thing is, if I modprobe -r / modprobe a couple of times, it will eventually work as is
18:52<Samooka>witte: and I can't trace the root of the issue
18:52<witte>Samooka: did you also include a bluethooth sound card or soemthing?
18:53<Samooka>no, but I did hook a bt usb dongle (by the way not working - yet!)

22:54<tcsetattr>I'm going to start biting people if they don't quit saying that kernel configs are in /boot. Those are only put there by the debian packaging system. There is no reason to believe they actually correspond to the running kernel. They are basically useless.
22:54<gmax>this is my /boot dir
22:54<Supaplex>yay my d-i kernel finally built.
22:54<gmax>more config-*
22:55<driver>and this is your config file config-2.4.27-2-386
22:55<Supaplex>gmax: what's uname -a say again?
22:55|-|davidh [] has joined #debian
22:55<gmax>Linux 2.6.12 #0 Mon May 15 14:33:44 CEST 2006 i686 GNU/Linux
22:55<Supaplex>gmax: and is the system running etch? sarge?
22:56<driver>if you want to verify your tmpfs .. just run mount with no options
22:56<Supaplex>topic. upgrade to etch
22:56<gmax>easy to do ?
22:56|-|davidh [] has quit []
22:56<Supaplex>mostly. but critical. sarge is loosing security support soon
22:57<Supaplex>etch's kernel is 2.6.18
22:57<gmax>is it a re-install or an upgrade ?
22:57<Supaplex>and has tmpfs support
22:57<tcsetattr>custom kernel with vmware garbage may be a pain to replicate
22:57<Supaplex>!tell gmax about sarge->etch

22:58<Supaplex>the amd pcnet32 driver is in the new kernel, so it should be ok. but if it's vmware, create a snapshot if you're worried.
22:58[~]Supaplex perfers vserver and openvz over vmware for linux guests
22:58<gmax>Supapex you typed "!tell gmax about sarge->etch"
22:58<gmax>is that some bot thing ?
22:58<Supaplex>gmax: dpkg msgs you factiods
22:58<tcsetattr>yeah, some people around here for some reason think it's pleasant to speak to each other thorugh b0ts instead of as humans.
22:58<Supaplex>stoned: gmax another one of your clients? ;)
22:59<gmax>Supaplex sorry
22:59<stoned>Supaplex: I don't deal :)
22:59<stoned>I swear
22:59<Supaplex>haha ok.
22:59<stoned>man I can't breath through my nose
22:59<Supaplex>tcsetattr: w/o !tell, we'd end up flooding the channel.
22:59<stoned>I used vicks and my room smells now
23:00<gmax>dpkg msgs you factiods
23:00<stoned>I still can' tbreath out of my nose

23:00<Supaplex>!say hi gmax
23:00<dpkg>hi gmax
23:00<gmax>well what am i supposted to do it ?
23:00<dpkg>sarge->etch is read the etch release notes: ; the recommended upgrade procedure for sarge->etch is no longer as simple as running "aptitude dist-upgrade", please follow the prodedure in the <release notes>. also ask me about <security>
23:00<Supaplex>just follow the instructions
23:00<Supaplex>did you get that from /query dpkg before?
23:02<driver>release notes reccomends aptitude for package management but I dont like it
23:02<Supaplex>it's more capable when it comes to dependency hurdles
23:03<tcsetattr>it's more capable of deciding it wants to remove half the packages on your system for no reason
23:03<driver>aptitude is great! for finding broken packages
23:03<driver>amen to that

23:04<Supaplex>works fine for me. file a bug with descriptive details if you want it fixed. (barring 'by design' and 'user error' issues)
23:04<gmax>i see
23:04<driver>release notes also sez that the upgrade will fail if any packages are on hold
23:05<Supaplex>silly intel. I guess "optical" is ... wired.
23:06<Supaplex>argh! I forgot to compile the nic static for nfsroot.
23:07<gmax>well guys thanks for the help. I think my sensible path is to try to run the upgrade to etch as suggested.
23:07<gmax>at least the problem is (probably) not something stupid like command line syntax :)
23:09<tcsetattr>unfortunately since the kernel uses tmpfs internally, /proc/filesystems can show tmpfs even when you have it disabled for external use
23:10<Supaplex>tcsetattr: oh because of shm?
23:10<gmax>mmm. i imagine that is a side effect of linux where the presence of a file does not mean it works
23:10<driver>right, the tmpfs is not for userspace
23:11<driver>its virtual and binnary

23:39<gmax>Hi folks
23:39<gmax>i have started a process for upgrading from sarge to etch
23:39<gmax>i ran an aptitude upgrade command
23:39<gmax>with the following results
23:40|-|nichos [] has joined #debian
23:40<nichos>hi all, im upgrading from xfree to xorg, im having trouble w/artwiz
23:40<gmax>anyone got an idea on how to fix this ?
23:40<nichos>Cannot find alternative `/etc/X11/cursors/core.theme
23:40<formorer>gmax: this is no sarge
23:40<gmax>i ran the upgrade again but it did not help
23:41<formorer>gmax: sarge has no idea about gpg release file checking
23:41<nichos>~tell nichos about artwiz
23:41<nichos>~tell nichos about artwiz-cursor
23:41<gmax>ok so .... what should i do ?
23:41<litage>gmax: google for the key that apt doesn't know about
23:42<formorer>gmax: btw. this was the third google hit or so. You also want to read the release notes
