00:00<sysop>chealer, did you know if I need to create this device?
00:00|-|sport [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
00:00<chealer>stuart: etch, yeah. no, you'd install sun-java5.
00:00<stuart>chealer: i tried the (official debian) java installation via apt-get, but this seemed far inferior to sun's
00:01<stuart>chealer: which is not in the official repo?
00:01<chealer>sysop: # ifconfig -a; should show an interface for the card from the moment when Linux has its driver loaded.
00:01|-|dfa001 [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
00:01<chealer>sysop: (unless you need to mess with firmware. I don't know about that)
00:02<sysop>chealer, yes I tried ifconfig -a and iwconfig and there is no one... only my eth0 (wire network) and sit0 (ipv6)
00:02<sysop>chealer, and lo (loopback)
00:02|-|freight [] has joined #debian
00:02<chealer>stuart: I didn't try Sun's installation since a long time but I can't see how Debian's package would be far inferior. are you sure you tried sun-java5, and not java-package?
00:03<chealer>stuart: sun-java5 is in "the official repositories", but not officially in Debian. it's in non-free.
00:04<freight>Oh. No. I just accidentally did an 'rm -rf ./ <dir>' before things get more corrupted than they already are, how can I recover what was deleted? it only ran for about 3 seconds...
00:04<freight>I"m running ext3
00:05<freight>I'm afraid to open a browser for fear the cache would start to overwrite what was deleted.
00:06<freight>luckily, if you want to call it that it was in my home directory.
00:06|-|manel [~manel@] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
00:06<stuart>chealer: was probably java package

00:07<chealer>stuart: sun-java5 is simpler
00:07|-|Flimqy [] has joined #debian
00:08<freight>at least does anyone know if there's a rhyme or reason to how rm will begin deleting files? Or does it just start deleting wherever the head hit the drive?

00:09<chealer>!tell stuart about paste
00:10<stuart>chealer: also, is there a list of the "tell about" commands somewhere?
00:10<chealer>!tell stuart about your factoids
00:10<freight>!tell me about undelete
00:11|-|Metalqga [] has joined #debian
00:12<chealer>stuart: what you want is to search. the full list of factoids is too long.
00:12<sysop>what is !tell about something
00:12<dpkg>extra, extra, read all about it, foo is probably the first metasyntactic variable, it's a placeholder for some other term. See <> and <bar>, also read RFC3092.
00:12<chealer>!tell sysop about bar
00:12<sysop>yes !tell sysop about bar
00:12<chealer>!listkeys undelete
00:12<dpkg>Factoid search of 'undelete' by key (3): undelete ;; #debian undelete ;; _default undelete.
00:13<chealer>sysop: dpkg is supposed to have sent you the bar factoid.
00:13<stuart>chealer: The only java5 thing that shows up for me in synaptic displays without an icon, so i assume if from the multimedia repository i have rather than the official non-free?
00:13[~]Supaplex ponders ... apt-get upgrade
00:14<chealer>stuart: no, that's fine. the icon means that it's supported/in main.

00:27<chealer>stuart: right
00:27|-|lovelywc1 [~wcm@] has joined #debian
00:27<stuart>chealer: do you know why they don't display in the font drop down menu from within Writer?
00:28<Waddledee>stuart: I found that Openoffice doesn't always pick up on new fonts right away. Indeed, I had a weird issue where they would go in and out of availability for a bit after being installed. You might try restarting Openoffice, or even a quick reboot.

00:52|-|NeGRoMaNCeR [~sebas@] has left #debian [Saliendo]
00:52<dli_>compz, most likely, you have to download the firmware first, put it in /lib/firmware/ , rmmod the driver, and try again
00:53<compz>dli_ could it be in the lenny install disc?, it was recognized by debian installer
00:55|-|juancgt [] has joined #debian
00:55<dli_>compz, I guess not, probably, it's not free software according to DFSG, therefore, can not be included in debian

01:02<compz>dli_ there is a package that says Firmware for Atmel at76c50x wireless networking chips. in repositories, how can I know if its the right chipset?
01:02<chealer>compz: Atmel is not VIA. you must be mixing with an Ethernet card.
01:02<compz>chealer, excuse me?
01:03<compz>I did a lspcmcia it is a atmel_cs

02:46<compz>dli_ already asked in a PM, it has nothing in the memory
02:47<dli_>compz, zd1211 is in standard kernel
02:47<compz>dli_ I think zd1211b doesn't get along well with Debian, zd1211 does, but not zd1211b

02:50<compz>that's why I want to compile, I'm downloading a newew source though, it looks like kernel was updated and my older source does not compile correctly
02:50<gsimmons>compz: Have you installed the 'zd1211-firmware' package?
02:50<dli_>compz, zd1211-firmware is in non-free
02:51<dli_>compz, also, firmware has nothing to do with driver building

03:29|-|mode/#debian [+l 275] by debhelper
03:29<hobophobe>Shiver, is it reading anything?
03:29<compz>dli_ one more question, does it has to take so long to boot because of dhclient trying to grab a lease?, it is very nice to have interfaces grab the lease when you connect the device, but it's a pain in the ass when you boot
03:30<elhaz_>what could be a section for a debugger program....
03:30<hobophobe>Sounds likely elhaz_
03:31<dli_>compz, use static IP then :)
03:32<compz>okey :P, thanks for all your help dli_
03:32<Shiver>no, gtkpod recognizes the ipod bute fails to read the iTunesDB.ext file
03:32<compz>Shiver, did you synchronized the pod with iTunes before using linux?
03:33<Shiver>jap, i did
03:33|-|vodka [~vodka@] has quit [Quit: Mess with the Best, Die like the Rest!]
03:33<compz>I think my pod does the same thing, let me check
03:34<Shiver>but i'm mounting the filesystem in fstab with automatical filesystem detection, and linux is recognizing ntfs proberly
03:34<compz>nope, not anymore
03:34<compz>Shiver, iPod is not formatted with ntfs
03:35<compz>unless they changeed it in the 4G+ generations?
03:35<Shiver>the first connection with my ipod came from a windows machine and as far as i read, it's formatted to ntfs then?
03:36<Shiver>oh, i should mention that my ipod is 6th generation
03:36<compz>mmm, I have a 3G :(, and uses fat 32
03:36<compz>don't know if newer ones use ntfs

03:37<hobophobe>Interesting, the file with the build errors has no difference from last version.
03:37<guillaume>Shiver: you can try ntfs3g maybe
03:37<Shiver>as filesystem in fstab?
03:38<compz>Shiver according to wiki they use fat32 not ntfs
03:38<Shiver>thats odd
03:38<Shiver>so i need to specify the filesystem manualy in fstab, right?
03:38<compz>maybe it's not updated?, what does mount say?
03:39<guillaume>Shiver: you can try mount
03:39<Shiver>it's mounted without probs, gtkpod even recognizes the device name i set in itunes
03:40<guillaume>Shiver: ls -l is correct for r/w ?

03:51<Shiver>well i could use itunes on my windows laptop as well, but all my music is on the PC running linux
03:51<guillaume>Shiver: and amarok ?
03:52<guillaume>it's a sort of itune no ?
03:52<Shiver>guillaume: i did, as mentioned in the README on the gtkpod project site, a made a backup of the database
03:52<Shiver>amarok? never heard of it
03:53<guillaume>shiver aptitude show amarok
03:53<suiside>amarok has ipod support these days, works fine
03:53<Shiver>perhaps i should try this first
03:53<guillaume>Shiver: seem to be much more complete than gtkpod interface

03:56<guillaume>I wonder if it's possible to keep a collection under amarok without the device (for 100 cd..; :) )
03:57<suiside>amarok keeps a very capable database of your music
03:57<Shiver>suiside: I see, the list of deps is quite long ^^
03:57<guillaume>got only the track into the playlist
03:58<guillaume>but when removing the media, the collection doesn't stay accessible
03:58<Shiver>but i don't need to purge gtkpod before?
04:01<suiside>Shiver: ipodlinux is a very fun project but theyr target audience is definately enthusiasts, so if you're looking for something more consumer friendly go for rockbox, also the stability entirely depends on the model and generation of your ipod

04:10<hobophobe>How do I edit an archive with a '.' directory?
04:10<dli_>hobophobe, for example?
04:10<hobophobe>I open the archive and the only directory is named .
04:11<hobophobe>It has files in it which I can extract, but I can't delete them or rename the directory
04:11<azeem>hobophobe: maybe there are no other directories in it?
04:11<hobophobe>It's control.tar.gz from a .deb
04:11<guillaume>hobophobe: it's an empty archive
04:11<hobophobe>There are files in the . directory

04:12<azeem>hobophobe: why is that a problem?
04:12<hobophobe>Well I'd like to edit the md5sums file in the .deb so that I can see if my patch works.
04:13<hobophobe>Otherwise I assume it won't install due to mismatching md5sum?
04:13<azeem>hobophobe: the md5sums inside the .deb are advisory
04:13<hobophobe>ah, so it should still work.. I'll give it a shot
04:13<guillaume>call a directory . is possible in fs ?
04:14<azeem>. is the current dircotiry
04:14<azeem>it just means the tar will extract to the current directory, not some sub-directory
04:14<guillaume>yes that's why i find that strange

05:00<guillaume>hobophobe: it's not for doing always the same thing, that's why I search an easy way to do so
05:01<hobophobe>Ah, use && I think?
05:01<hobophobe>command1 && command2 only execute command2 if command1 succeeds (returns true) though?
05:01<hobophobe>so if you want it to only execute if the previous succeed then it should work
05:02<skrewz>(otherwise, use regular sequenzing `command1; command2`)
05:02<hobophobe>ah, right on skrewz :o)
05:03<guillaume>skrewz: still execute command only if previous succed or not ?
05:05<skrewz>guillaume: No, ``regardless of command1's exit status''.
05:06<guillaume>skrewz: ok, so I think && is better for what I do
05:06<skrewz>You can use the simple commands `true` and `false` (that simply return successful or failure) to exemplify. `true && echo worked` will print out ``worked'', whereas `false && echo worked` will not.
05:07<skrewz>`true ; echo worked` and `true ; echo worked` will also both print out worked.
05:07<guillaume>i'm not familiar with that :)

05:14<guillaume>Shiver: maybe it's due to a missing package

08:59<Zathras>hi. On debian etch when I am root and issue a "su - postgres" to become the postgres (7.4) user I get kicked out by PAM instantly. AFAIK I have not changed a thing to the config of postgres. What is wrong/how can I fix this?
09:00<azeem>Zathras: check that the postgres user has a valid shell specified
09:01<azeem>Zathras: I guess it doesn't, so the question is: Why do you want to become the postgres user?
09:01<Zathras>to add a user
09:01<Zathras>postgres:x:110:110:PostgreSQL administrator,,,:/var/lib/postgresql:/bin/false

09:05<gsimmons>Zathras: Use su -c "su -s /bin/sh postgres" (or 'sudo -u postgres sh').

09:07<Zathras>k. thanks. That workaround works great. yet I am a bit puzzled why the postgres user has no shell. I suspect that is for security reasons but that way a lot of the documentation on the internet is no longer correct
09:09|-|maxmi [] has quit [Quit: My damn controlling terminal disappeared!]
09:10<twb>Usually it is because the postgres user should not login.
09:10<twb>If you use sudo, `sudo -u postgres command-i-want' is probably less breakworthy than actually starting a shell.

11:38|-|el_nueve [] has quit []
11:38<dpkg>z25 is, like, as of version 0.090, udev has the ability to staticly rename ethernet cards based on MAC address. the addresses are configured in /etc/udev/rules.d/z25_persistent-net.rules . If you want the mappings to change, edit that file. if you don't want udev to touch your interface names, remove that file and z45_persistent-net-generator.rules in the same directory

11:40<chealer>kop: z25 is a rules file like any file in /etc/udev/rules.d/.
11:40<kop>chealer : I've avoided learning about udev. It's time to dive in. Will I learn everything I need from man udev or is there a better place?
11:41<chealer>kop: no idea, I never red man udev. it doesn't seem to cover comments in rules files, but $ less /etc/udev/rules.d/*; does.
11:42<kop>chealer : Ok. Maybe there's something in the debian reference too.
11:42<chealer>kop: doubtful. look at Wikipedia I guess.
11:43<kop>BTW, I learned the other day that if you assign alias IPs to the same nic on the same subnet, you can control which IP is used for the source address with the 'metric' setting. FYI.

11:44<kop>fxiny : The routing table 'only via "ip route"' controls locally initiated source IP.

11:53<dpkg>it has been said that ia64 is (Intel Architecture-64), a 64-bit processor architecture developed in cooperation by Intel and Hewlett-Packard, implemented by processors such as Itanium and Itanium 2. The goal of Itanium was to produce a "post-RISC era" arch using EPIC. see -- if your CPU is opteron/athlon64/turion/sempron/xeon/em64t/pentium/core2duo/core*, then it is NOT ia64

14:42<sheldonh>i've installed subversion and subversion-tools on etch but can't find anywhere
14:43<ranix>kop: you can simply provide the kernel argument "console=/dev/ttyS0" IIRC
14:43<kop>ranix : That'll work for the kernel, but not for the grub boot menu.

14:44<ranix>you're right about that. I've never used grub that way, was using redboot instead
14:45<hutschi>hello, I could need help compiling the libsane library... Does anyone know where I can find the sources on an installed system?
14:45<kop>ranix : I can put stuff in the regular grub config file, but I'm worried that that's read late in the boot sequence. Grub has a "preset menu" that (I think) winds up complied in.
14:46<kop>hutschi : There's a debian way to rebuild the package, but I'm not sure what it is. It'll be documented in the reference manual on, I think.
14:46<hutschi>i see -- so will have a look there...thanks :)
14:47<kop>I know that debian does something with serial consoles, because I think I heard the new installer will install one.

15:04<dondelelcaro>sheldonh: setting the EDITOR variable in /etc/profile is a bad idea, because EDITOR is how users override the default, not how the systemwide default is set. Finally, /etc/profile is only sourced for bash login shells; if it's not set, then something else is unsetting it (or you're not actually setting it properly)
15:04<twb>Setting ANYTHING in /etc/profile is exceedingly rude and ill-considerate
15:05<twb>RHEL forces ls to have --color=auto in /etc/profile, and it annoys me no end.
15:05<dondelelcaro>well, there are reasons to set things in /etc/profile, but generally you shouldn't do so after there are actually users
15:05<kop>However, it's possible to set /etc/skel/.bash_profile, and then update each users profile -- and not alter the system default.
15:05<kop>That's a pain.
15:06<dondelelcaro>(and it's not like you can't change the ls alias)

16:26<panagos>ok, something else: if i want to use LVM, does it matter how i make my initial partitioning (in terms of reliability, maintainability, etc)?
16:29<lupine_85>not particularly; you can always add more physical volumes to your volume group
16:29<lupine_85>on HD with one partition... not much point to LVM though
16:30[~]lupine_85 has it, but he tends to have 3 or 4 different linux distributions installed at any one time
16:31<twb>Put it this way: if you use LVM, the volume setup within LVM matters a lot less than if you were setting up partitions without LVM
16:32<lupine_85>although striped vs., umm, the other one, is a consideration with more than one PV
16:32<SixF9>but you pay with performance and resources
16:32<SixF9>you should mention that also
16:32<lupine_85>speed vs. reliability
16:32<twb>I personally enjoy the ability to make /var/cache striped across cheap disks, and /home limited to 10GB, without losing the ability to change the allocated space at a later date.
16:32<lupine_85>SixF9: I doubt that there's any significant overhead
16:33<SixF9>and lets say ... you give your "linux partition" about 10GB space you should be fine in most cases
16:33<twb>I also cherish the ability to easily move volumes to new disks as the old ones degrade
16:33<lupine_85>don't forget replication
16:33<lupine_85>that's "wow"
16:33<twb>lupine_85: hmm?
16:33<lupine_85>you can replicate LVs, instantly
16:33<twb>You mean snapshots?
16:33<lupine_85>um, yeah
16:34<SixF9>well. the average user moves his root device like ... once a year or less often
16:34<lupine_85>too much terminology
16:34<twb>That is amazingly handy for backing up scalix databases
16:34<lupine_85>SixF9: average is a bit of a misnomer :p
16:34<twb>SixF9: I am not an average user. That's why I don't use OS X.
16:34<lupine_85>I consider myself to be fairly average when it comes to linux
16:34<SixF9>lupine_85: its just not common that you often add drives
16:34<SixF9>at least if we talk desktop usage
16:34<twb>My desktop has no drive
16:34<lupine_85>I add them as my 1337 warez0rz store increases

18:39<tcsetattr>there are 3 verbose levels that you can pick with the kernel makefiles: V=0 V=1 V=2. V=1 is normal make output. V=2 is like super-verbose. V=0 is an abbreviated form, not really enough information if something goes wrong...
18:39<nick>how do I set them?
18:40<tcsetattr>make-kpkg may have its own idiocy being added; I don't know, I've never used it
18:40<nick>I mean in the kernel makefiles?
18:41<nick>what file do I edit to set this?
18:42<tcsetattr>well they go on the make command line, I suppose you could hack them directly into the makefile too. "make help" is useful.

18:45<tcsetattr>no one will come to your house and arrest you if you don't read it.
18:46<tcsetattr>it's important to have a log of what happened, if it doesn't work. when it does work, there's no reason to read it. except scanning for warnings, and they stand out well enough in the normal V=0 output.

20:49<chealer>wotan: yes
20:50<wotan>chealer: so how do I get nvidia 3D driver working on lenny?

20:58<wotan>how do I do that?
20:58<chealer>pony: flashmax? do you have a link about that?
20:58<wotan>i don't want anything else from unstable except for 2.6.22
20:58<chealer>!tell wotan about tsm
20:58<wotan>i read that and it doesnt make sense to me
20:59<dpkg>echo 'APT::Default-Release "testing";' >> /etc/apt/apt.conf, edit sources.list, duplicate your non-security testing lines and change one set to sid. then apt-get update. use # apt-get -t unstable install foo; to install foo from sid rather than testing as usual. consider making sure you've read the APT HOWTO when setting this up, as it exposes to unstable packages.

23:28<jusae>if its a router, it will be 192.168.1.x
23:28<bathat>i've tried a couple of trial apps for windows in BartPE
23:28<bathat>they recovered zilch
23:29<jusae>don't have the os try doin shit to the drive
23:29<bathat>my next option is a professional data recovery service like compusa
23:29<bathat>this was on the backup drive, but i probably tried it on the original, too
23:29<tupa>jusae not necessarily
23:29|-|craigevil [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
23:29|-|miksuh [] has joined #debian
23:30<bathat>it shouldn't have written anything to the drive
23:30<jusae>dude, u need to really look at data recovery software and if ur usin it once, or
23:30<cheeseboy>tupa ok its in dmz what next?
23:30<jusae>firewall would be a good idea
23:30<bathat>i've seen people suggest getmydataback but i can't find it anywhere
23:30<bathat>for free, that is
23:30<tupa>cheeseboy be sure you have apache working
23:31<bathat>i've obviously already tried testdisk and gpart
23:31<jusae>no spare 400mhz machine as a inbetween
23:31<cheeseboy>tupa thats spanish :/
23:31<bathat>so you really think data recovery software for linux would work?
23:31<jusae>i can't really suggest applications, i could help with some low level ide commands
23:31<bathat>i haven't been successful with the trialware
23:32<tupa>cheeseboy so?, you only need to see if you have ports open, do you have any green lights?
23:32<jusae>they do work, but most people keep it inhouse, cos linux is the choosen os for anyone who wants to steal shit :)
23:32<cheeseboy>tupa yes
23:33<bathat>oh... did you find out if the backup superblocks are overwritten from time to time?
23:33<bathat>i tried to replace the corrupted superblock with a backup one only a few days after this mess started
23:33<tupa>jusae, what about warez :P, 90% of warez is for linux, and 19.9 for mac os
23:33<bathat>and it wouldn't even work then
23:33<bathat>there's very little data recovery software for linux
23:34<tupa>cheeseboy, ok, there you go, you have a public IP
23:34|-|Brudus [] has joined #debian
23:34<cheeseboy>tupa now what do i do?
23:34<bathat>it's all for windows, which seems backwards to me
23:34<jusae>i think they are, the os does shit to it sometimes, but my book and notes are on ide channel data
23:34<tupa>cheeseboy what's your IP
23:34<bathat>oh ok
23:34<bathat>well, my ubuntu install drive got messed up once after i ran the windows software on it
23:35<bathat>but it's gotten messed up before when i hadn't too, so...
23:35<jusae>windows os software sells, as a programmer, avoidin xp is shootin urself in the foot
23:35<Brudus>Does anyone know how to get more controll over the mouse. Namley what i'm trying to do is get it to scrool more lines when I move the mouse wheel. I'ved tried the "mouse" section in the Gnome Control Center. They didn't have any section for the scroll wheel.
23:35<jusae>bathat: i think tupa's right, hit the warez people for any recovery software
23:36<cheeseboy>tupa pmed it
23:36<jusae>the better ones will scan the drive, when it relises there's no pointers
23:36<bathat>testdisk is ALWAYS able to find a backup superblock for my root partition
23:36<tupa>cheeseboy, are you sure you got green lights? I can't enter your apache server
23:36<bathat>just none of the others (about seven more)
23:37<tupa>cheeseboy, what ports where open on the website?
23:37<bathat>jusae, so you don't believe they will bungle up the drive any more than it already is?
23:37<jusae>if his server isn't configure, u get no data

23:44<wotan>chealer: when the .22 kernel that I installed goes to testing, will I be able to take out the sid parts of my sources.list and just use only testing from that point forward?
23:45<chealer>wotan: yes. you can already do that if you want.
23:45<wotan>chealer: i don't think i can do that right now
23:45<chealer>wotan: why not?
23:45|-|mitchp [] has joined #debian
23:45<wotan>chealer: don't i need the .22 kernel from sid in order to run the nvidia 3D driver?
23:46<chealer>wotan: yes. but you don't need an APT source for it since it's already installed.
23:46<wotan>chealer: oh so I can remove all of the sid stuff from sources.list and also delete the apt.conf file?

23:47<jusae>i'm so close to havin my system workin, i love u guys
23:48|-|sebash [] has joined #debian
23:48<jusae>when i go live, i'm bnc'in, cos i don't trust any of u
23:49<chealer>wotan: I don't understand what you mean by "know to update kernels".
23:50<jusae>the installation tests
23:50<wotan>chealer: let me ask another way. When the next kernel that is more up-to-date than the one I currently have goes into testing, will my system pick it up?
23:50<chealer>wotan: yes
23:50<wotan>chealer: how?
23:51<wotan>chealer: how will the "update system" know that my kernel needs to be updated?
23:51|-|GhostlyDeath [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
23:51<wotan>chealer: Don't I need to have one of those kernel meta packages installed? Do you know what I am referring to?
23:52<jusae>one or more tests that the install system checks will register as being unsupport by ur current kernal
23:52<chealer>wotan: yes
23:52<wotan>chealer: I don't think I have one of those kernel meta packages installed
23:52<wotan>or do I?

23:55<chealer>wotan: if you didn't have Linux image metapackages installed while you ran pure testing, APT wouldn't have automatically installed a new Linux image package that would have entered testing. similarly, if a new Linux image package appears in testing now that you have a Linux image from unstable, APT won't install it automatically.
23:55<jusae>if ur gonna stick ur head in really deep, u might aswell get a dev machine workin
23:55<wotan>linux-image-2.6-686 "This package depends on the latest binary image for Linux kernel 2.6 on
23:55<wotan>Pentium Pro/Celeron/Pentium II/Pentium III/Pentium 4 machines."
23:55<wotan>so I think I do have it
23:56|-|velixzeen [~velixzeen@] has joined #debian
23:56<chealer>wotan: but if you have a metapackage, it will be upgraded when there is an upgrade available.
23:56<jusae>whats the command to find out what kernel version ur using
23:56<chealer>!kernel version
23:56<dpkg>To determine which kernel version you are running use the command: uname -r
23:57<wotan>chealer: I do have the metapackage. So it looks like I'm good to go.
23:57<chealer>wotan: yes
23:57<jusae>i get chills with that meta-package
