00:55<jm_>The debian-volatile service that was introduced as an unofficial service with the release of sarge has now become an official Debian GNU/Linux service.
00:55<jm_>This means that it now uses a address[3]. Please make sure to update your /etc/apt/sources.list accordingly if you were already using this service.
00:55<Supaplex>oh then dpkg needs a few factoids fixored. :)
00:55<kintaro0e>hi guys..i have a config file and i want to change all web.html ---> web.war, how can i do it? do i use a bash scripting?

00:57<dpkg>Factoid search of 'volatile' by value (3): debian-volatile ;; nvram ;; volatile.
00:57<kintaro0e>jm_: you have a sample script on it? :)
00:57<jm_>kintaro0e: you don't know how to use the 's' command in sed?
00:58<Supaplex>5m ago volatile was old. :) someone fixed it already.
00:59<Supaplex> is likewise unresponsive.
01:01<formorer>works here
01:01<gsimmons_>Supaplex: Works for me. It issues a redirect to
01:01<Supaplex>sure now it works. 15m later. :P
01:01<kintaro0e>jm_: ok
01:02<tcsetattr>looks like one of its IP addresses is down. works, doesn't

02:21<mjk>What's the difference between the hashes H1 and H2 given in /etc/crypttab: "cipher=aes-cbc-essiv:$H1,size=256,hash=$H2"? -- I left out H2 in crypttab, and initramfs's /scripts/local-top/cryptroot defaults to H2=sha256, whereas the default for cryptsetup is H2=ripemd160 (which of course made mounting my crypted volume fail).

02:22<kop>When I've an interface with an alias, what determines whether a program will use the alias or the underlying interface address when making outbound connections?
02:22<mjk>According to cryptsetup's manpage, H2 (given as --hash xxx or -h xxx) is for password hashing, but what the hash function after the colon (:) is for, is not mentioned.
02:23|-|gemini [] has joined #debian
02:25|-|gemini [] has quit []
02:25<kop>mjk: Wouldn't that be which hash function is used? Md5 SHA, etc. Some are easier to reverse than others, some are faster, etc.
02:26<mjk>kop: But why two hashes? How do they differ?
02:27<kop>mjk: That's kind of a big question. Some are easier to reverse than others. Those that are easier to reverse are easier to crack.
02:27<mjk>Linux's / Debian's crypto documentation sucks -- is that applied "Security by Obscurity"? ;-}
02:27<mjk>kop: ?
02:27<kop>mjk: Dunno reverse is the right word, could be "find collisions".
02:28<mjk>kop: I know there are different hash functions, but why do I need to give cryptsetup/crypttab two of them? What's the use of the one after the colon (":")?
02:28<kop>mjk: I'd hit wikipedia first. See "man md5" for a list of openssl hash functions.
02:29<kop>mjk : Ok, you know more about it than me.
02:29<mjk>kop: I'd rather need a Wikipedia article about cryptsetup or Linux crypto in general. :-} This stuff is either badly documented, or I'm just to enervated to find the right place.
02:29|-|lancetw_ [] has joined #debian
02:29<kop>mjk : You might also look at the kernel documention.
02:30<kop>mjk : I forget linux-doc-2.6?
02:30|-|lancetw [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
02:30<kop>mjk : I'd expect it to be part of the kernel's filesystem docs.
02:30<mjk>kop: Already had a look at it yesterday, but I was really tired, so I'll try again today. :-)
02:31<kop>I'm annoyed. Made assigned an alias address to an interface, and now all the programs want to use that for client connections.
02:31<mjk>kop: Why is that bad?
02:32<mjk>kop: "You wanted it, you asked for it, you got it." :-)
02:32<kop>mjk : Who knows. Linux tends to be badly documented. But I'd expect the crypto fs to be documented somewhere on the web or nobody'd trust it.
02:32<kop>mjk : I only want the extra, as extra.
02:32<kop>mjk : My firewall's unhappy.
02:33<mjk>kop: Hm, I see.
02:33<kop>mjk : The right solution is xen, but I'm currently faking it with an alias interface.

02:53<Supaplex>why not use tcpdump :)
02:55<Supaplex>freenode has #winehq I believe.
02:55<Supaplex>anyways... now it's not so hot in this house, sleep might be possible.
02:55<tupa>Supaplex: does it dumps the IP + MAC addresses of my neighbors in the same ISP?
02:56<tupa>that's exactly what CMsniff does

02:57<Supaplex>tcpdump -n -e -i ethX arp
02:57<Supaplex>sounds nefarious either way. caveat emptor - don't cry to me if you violate your AUP/local laws/etc.
02:59<_Timer_>ammm... I have etch with 2.6.18 kernel - what is the shortest way to 2.6.22 kernel?
03:00<tupa>_Timer_ build the source
03:00<Supaplex>depends on why you want the .22 kernel

03:09|-|kart_ [~kart_@] has joined #debian
03:10<suffer>i'm helping a friend build a epic4 bot on a shell account he has, but the system has almost nothing installed
03:11<suffer>i was able to decompress the epic4 deb, but one of the scripts depends on gnu units
03:11|-|jae [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
03:11<suffer>units reads from a .dat file. and i can't seem to find a place to put the dat file so that units will read it
03:12<suffer>i've tried keeping it in it's usuall dir (ie base/share/misc/units.dat
03:12<jm_>open("/usr/share/misc/units.dat", O_RDONLY) = 3
03:13<koollman>yep, strace is nice
03:13<suffer>i thought you were gone
03:13<koollman>or 'apt-file show units | grep dat'
03:14<suffer>well luckily jm knows exactly what i'm looking for since he wrote the script =D

03:18<jm_>or in current dir
03:19|-|snaj [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
03:19<suffer>i tried putting it in the cur dir (which also PATH)
03:19<jm_>ahh not the Debian version it would seem
03:19<jm_>just rebuild it
03:20<suffer>that's the problem, i can't. that's why i've been decompressing the debs
03:20<suffer>it's a free shell and you can't compile anything unless you are a donator
03:21<jm_>compile it elsewhere ...
03:21<suffer>that's a thought

03:49<mjk>Is there an elegant way to mount the /boot directory on /dev/hda2 as /boot (and not as /boot/boot) on my root directory? Of course, I could mount it to /boot.real and run "ln -s /boot.real/boot /boot", but that's not really elegant.
03:51<jm_>mjk: add it to fstab
03:51<simon444>mjk, yes just use the debian port of plan 9 or learn fstab
03:51<mjk>jm_: Yes, but how? I cannot specify "/dev/hda2/boot" (just like with nfs: pc99:/boot/boot /boot).
03:52<jm_>mjk: ehh? you specify /dev/hda2 for device
03:52|-|snaj [] has joined #debian
03:52|-|foolano [] has joined #debian
03:52<mjk>jm_: Yes, but the device contains the directory /boot (alas, grub needs its files under there), so when I have "/dev/hda2 /boot ..." in my fstab, the boot files are in /boot/boot, not in /boot.
03:53|-|Melais [] has joined #debian
03:53<jm_>mjk: /boot/boot is usually a symlink (GRUB doesn't really need it, but it's added for convenience)
03:54<jm_>mjk: so it appaears to me you have it backwards :)
03:54<jm_>mjk: maybe bind mount would work
03:54<jm_>but who knows if it will work for this weird case
03:54<mjk>jm_: No symlink to be seen here. And yes, GRUB *does* need /boot, because otherwise it can't read its menu.lst and will halt with "Error 15" (file not found).
03:55<jm_>mjk: naah, one can tell it where to look for that file when installing it, but most of the scripts are too stupid to pass it properly
03:55<mjk>jm_: Thought about that bind voodoo stuff, but have no experience with that yet.
03:56<mjk>jm_: man grub-install says "grub-install copies GRUB images into the DIR/boot directory specfied by --root-directory, and uses the grub shell to install grub into the boot sector."
03:57<mjk>jm_: And the manpage update-grub also refers solely to /boot.
03:57<jm_>mjk: yup, that's why the symlink
03:58<mjk>jm_: Can you tell me exactly where the link is and what it points to? Sorry if that's a stupid question. :-/
03:58<jm_>mjk: but I can now see how you ended up with it - stupid scripts
03:59<mjk>jm_: Err ... wait.
03:59<jm_>mjk: well normally it would be like this: mkfs.ext3 /dev/hda2 && mount /boot && cd /boot && ln -s . boot
03:59<jm_>mjk: I would just try the bind thing in your case
04:00<mjk>jm_: Strange ... I just see that on my current system, there is no /boot directory on the boot partition indeed!
04:00<mjk>jm_: And thus no symlink needed anywhere.
04:00<mjk>jm_: Now I just have to find out what my system does what the new system is missing ...

04:01<jm_>mjk: how do you call grub-install?
04:02<mjk>jm_: Errr ... I can hardly believe what I see in the shell history of my current system, but it claims I once had entered: grub-install --root-directory=/mnt/sdb2 '(hd1)'

05:46<MilkFloat>hi guys, having a bit of a problem with iptables, and it's absolutely baffling me. I have a loadbalancer setup using 2 debian etch servers as webservers - the loadbalancer software requires the following iptables line: iptables -A PREROUTING -d ${VIRTUALIP} -p tcp -j REDIRECT
05:47|-|zako [~zako@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
05:48<MilkFloat>now this works fine on fedora, but debian is not having any of it. I know iptables is working because I test configured it to block port 80 access. The modules are loaded, so all that seems to be fine, and the loadbalancer setup is a standard one that there have never been problems with before

09:41<seanius>but everything you need (including what used to be split into the pwcx blob) is now in the mainline kernel
09:41<jguthrie>Yes, that sounds like the cam I have.

09:42<twb>lukasm: that looks fine
09:43<seanius>iirc it just worked when i plugged it in, though i couldn't tell you that for sure until i get home

10:20<kop>Ok. Here's what I've found. When I make an alias on an interface (on the same network), I get _two_ default routes in the routing table. "ip route show" shows one with a "src" of the alias address. That seems to be the route that's always used, because all my outbound connections have the alias IP for a source address. I'm using etch. How come I've _two_ routes. Can I safely "ip route delete" the second in /etc/network/interfaces via post-up?
10:21|-|ryanakca [] has joined #debian
10:21<kop>If I "ip route delete" on the command line after boot then things work fine and the source address is that of eth0, not eth0:0.

12:01<dpkg>extra, extra, read all about it, exim4 is the default MTA in Debian sarge. The Debian package has a debconf-driven configuration which greatly eases configuration for most run-of-the-mill applications.

13:09<locsmif>I'd like to keep up with the number of GPLv3 licensed packages in the repo. I have scripted something to do this on my own system, but this ofcourse doesn't reflect the status in Debian as a whole

13:09<locsmif>tarzeau, indeed
13:10<tarzeau>locsmif: do you know about ?
13:10<locsmif>And it's difficult when you consider the fact that some packages may have slightly modified licenses, or put the words in different places

13:12<lupine>I'm a biologist. I know statistics...
13:13<locsmif>lupine, well, suppose a package enters Debian that is dual licensed, but also introduces a license never seen before (such as GPLv3) into the repo, it would be interesting to see that reflected in the statistics
13:13<locsmif>But in theory i suppose you could control the output layout via a web interface

13:16<locsmif>tarzeau, that link is an example of a GPLv3 detector
13:16<tarzeau>locsmif: yeah but you don't want to detect each individual license, with multiple runs over all those files
13:16<locsmif>You ofcourse know how to do this yourself, but note that this script matches across newlines, and different word orderings

The subnet is run by comcast around Houston, Tx. running iptraf to monitor live connection attempts, the server gets the initial S flagged packet to open the connection, but fails to return ANY packet at all. I have tried on multiple machines, 15 - 20 physical miles apart ( i know
14:07<eldowan>that really means nothing). What can I do, or try to look into to figure out why my server appears not to reply to packets from this network? iptables is using shorewall, and I have tried with a completely open iptables setting also. Any help is appreciated.

14:20<simon444>i.e. is there any vga signal for when the monitor is off?
14:20<twb>trodger: you fix it by having logrotate run a post-rotate script to restart your tail process

14:20<pumpkin0>simon444: you could do clever tricks with the VESA-link....

15:00<trodger>the_bull: Last I remembered the debian vimrc didn't have syntax on but just edit the vim file in /etc and uncomment that line.
15:00<twb>Well, I've never heard about it.
15:01<antgel>or have your own .vimrc so it doesn't get clobbered on upgrade

15:01<eldowan>I've asked in ##networking, but have had no response. I'm having a problem with a certain subnet via the cloud connecting to my server over any port, UDP or TCP. My server is running sarge, and works flawlessly with ANY other subnet. The subnet is run by comcast around Houston, Tx. running iptraf to monitor live connection attempts, the server gets the initial S flagged packet to open the connection, but fails to return ANY packet at all. I have tried on
15:01<eldowan>multiple machines, 15 - 20 physical miles apart ( i know that really means nothing). What can I do, or try to look into to figure out why my server appears not to reply to packets from this network? iptables is using shorewall, and I have tried with a completely open iptables setting also. Any help is appreciated.
15:01<antgel>"nd hv" isn't english. "4" is not the word "for"

15:02<ranix>There were some inconsistancies in the files I was dealing with that really looked like capitalization errors, but I could have been slightly confused at the time. It parsed after replacing each problem character with an instance of a previous character that matched the rest of the string, or something
15:02<ranix>there were also funky two-byte characters intersperced with four-byte characters
15:02<locsmif>eldowan, there are various steps you should take
15:03<locsmif>eldowan, first of all, completely disable shorewall
15:03<locsmif>then, check the output of iptables list commands to check if the rules are cleaned
15:03|-|aquilotto12 [] has left #debian []
15:03<eldowan>locsmif: did that already, no difference.
15:03<locsmif>confirm that shorewall is not running
15:03<tcsetattr>and use tcpdump instead of iptraf
15:04<locsmif>then you check with netstat -natup if the program you are checking is indeed listening on the port you expect
15:04<eldowan>iptables -L returns only 5 or six lines, as opposed to many many when shorewall is open.
15:04<locsmif>eldowan, there you have it
15:04<tcsetattr>and iptables -L -t nat and iptables -L -t mangle

15:17<simon444>Justmeee, no
15:17<stew>Justmeee: either your harddrive is dying or your hard drive cable is bad or dying. make a backup asap
15:17<Justmeee>NO it isn't

15:17<simon444>lupine, not with linux
15:18<stew>Justmeee: chack smartmontools
15:18<Justmeee>and if the DMA is enabled the hard drive is NOT dying..
15:18<azeem>how does that follow?
15:18<lupine>general hints could be useful anyway :)
15:18<Justmeee>IT HAS TO DO WITH THE DMA others thought that too that the drive was dying but it wasn't
15:18<stew>Justmeee: ok what is your question then?

15:18|-|sepski [~sep@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
15:18<stew>Justmeee: i'd recommend checking smartmontools anyway
15:18<lupine>While setting up the ppp link, it gets local and remote link-layer addresses...
15:18<Justmeee>yes there is when these guys can't read
15:18<simon444>Google had a problem with a DMA bug in the linux kernel
15:19<azeem>Justmeee: no there isn't
15:19<dwon>I've seen Justmee's pastebin'd issue. As far as I can tell, the hard drives are fine.
15:19<Justmeee>my question is how do you disable the DMA
15:19<simon444>listen to Rob Pike at Usenix 05
15:19<locsmif>Justmeee, man hdparm
15:19<lupine>...but giving my end an addresses within my allocation and trying to ping the outside world doesn't work
15:19<dwon>on the other hand, for me, Linux just disabled DMA automatically
15:19<lupine>hdparm, isn't it?
15:19<locsmif>Justmeee, but with newer kernels changing dma may be impossible
15:19<dwon>I think you can add like "hda=pio" on the kernel command-line
15:19<locsmif>Justmeee, but in any case, unless smartmontools confirms your hdd is in a healthy state, we won't believe you
15:20<Justmeee>According to some articles i read on google the HD isn't dying but it is a DMA issue that causes sluggy performance and this error
15:20<azeem>Justmeee: maybe it could be both?

17:04<antgel>KaiSVk: how did you build the kernel?
17:04<jusae>i use mutt btw
17:04<twb>jusae: I don't understand the question.
17:05<chealer>softwork: although I can guess pretty safely that you're using the 486 image, which is why your second core isn't used.
17:05<KaiSVk>antgel I did it before, I did it "the debian way"
17:05<twb>By default I believe mutt uses /usr/sbin/sendmail to send mail.
17:05<KaiSVk>antgel what with that vmlinuz ?
17:05<softwork>i use 2.6.18-4-486
17:05<twb>It can probably be instructed to speak directly to an SMTP service.
17:05<simon444>softwork, it is best to keep browsing 32bits. Also this means it can't access too much ram after a leak.
17:05<antgel>KaiSVk: except the debian way works. what commands did you type
17:05<chealer>softwork: right, so that's why.
17:05<jusae>sendmail isn't a configuration file, where do I tell it what smtp server to use
17:05<KaiSVk>antgel don't I have to make the vmlinuz ?
17:05<twb>jusae: that depends on your MTA.
17:06<jusae>i used to love mutt
17:06<softwork>i dont no
17:06<jusae>now i'm starting to hate it
17:06<antgel>KaiSVk: are you going to tell me what you did or just keep asking vague questions?
17:06<twb>Of course, if you send mail to a local user via sendmail(8) no SMTP server will be used at all.
17:06<KaiSVk>antgel basicaly this

21:43<lupine>I now have a fully-functioning etch in a /target on a remote system
21:43<Ardi>hmm it looks like more errors coming through
21:43<lupine>I bet it'll be fun moving it to the correct location

21:52<twb>That's bitten me on the ass when extracting a debian chroot under centos -- adm is uid 2 instead of 3 or something trivial like that, and it break... gdm IIRC
21:52<lupine>twb: they're not being tar'd
21:52<twb>Fair enough
21:52<lupine>I've copied /bin to /bin.old, which is added to the path, and I'm busily deleting all the dirs in / except /target
21:52<lupine>then I'll just mv them all voer
21:53<lupine>Will I succeed? PLACE BETS NOW ;)

22:38<lupine>theoretically speaking, if I have user access to my own server, don't have sudo, and don't seem to have a root password enabled... how do I get root privs back?
22:39<dondelelcaro>lupine: do you have physical access to your server?
22:39<dondelelcaro>then you don't
22:40<lupine>haha, joy
22:40<dondelelcaro>(unless you happen to find a local root exploit)
22:40<lupine>mm, it's etch so pretty secure I think ;)
22:40<dondelelcaro>yeah, there shouldn't be any

23:00<oddtod>hey guys i'm lookingto install XP on a machine that has Debian Etch already installed how would i do this i've done it the other way around(really easy) but i've never installed xp on a box with nix already on it
23:00<lupine>oddtod: it's pretty easy, just make sure that you have a partition handy
23:01<lupine>also note that XP overwrites grub, so you'll need some method of booting back into your linux install to reinstall it to the MBR
23:01<oddtod>like a live cd
23:01<lupine>that'd do it, yeah
23:01<oddtod>i'm actually doing it with ubuntu just the ppl in the ubuntu room are idiots
23:02<oddtod>very unhelpful
23:02<lupine>the bot on freenode is helpful
23:02<lupine>you want to !mbr it
23:02<lupine>but debian >> ubuntu anyway :p
23:02<oddtod>so i just install on the extra partition i have and then reinstall grub?
23:02<lupine>that's all there is to it
23:03<oddtod>i know man i agree debian is a really solid OS i'm just not as familiar with Linux yet so i'm trying to get my feet wet before i jump right in ya know?
