00:00<chealer>deft: let me ask my crystal ball
00:00<klys>deft: anything 450 MHz and up is a happy system, 700 MHZ for firefox, even more if you want
00:00[~]chealer 's crystall ball says...Maybe
00:00<deft>i was more referring to possible hardware issues

00:04<deft>does etch support ultra ata these days?
00:05<klys>deft: see your kernel docs
00:05|-|moriyah [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
00:06<deft>it's been 5 years since I touched anything remotely unixlike, where do I find those?
00:06<djmachado_>klys: all of these packages are for i386 , right?
00:07<klys>djmachado_: that's what you want for an i386 kernel
00:07<djmachado_>that's it
00:07<djmachado_>any directory in special?
00:08<chealer>deft: if Linux 2.6.18 still supports it, Etch supports it
00:08<deft>etch is based on 2.6.18?
00:09<klys>to put .deb files in? no, just make sure you sort them out with something lik nautilus or konqueror, and document the dependencies, and post them online for those who are trying to do the same thing... or delete them when they're installed if you don't want to do everything for everybody...
00:09<chealer>deft: Etch includes Linux 2.6.18
00:09<deft>weird way of seeing it..
00:09<klys>you could make a cd to automate the process

00:12<momo521>i just installed debian
00:12<deft>k, thx, I'll be back when i'm I've installed
00:13<momo521>can someone help me?
00:13|-|deft [] has left #debian []
00:13<dpkg>If you have a question, just ask! For Example: "I have a problem with ___; I'm running Debian version ___. when I try to do ___ I get the following output ___. I expected it to do ___." Don't ask if you can ask, or if anyone uses it, or pick one person to ask (ask the whole channel!). We're all volunteers; make it easy for us to help you. If you don't get an answer, ask later or ask
00:13[~]ricky didn't know that dpkg too ~ as well :)

00:21<klys>djmachado: dpkg --root=/loop -iGREB *.deb
00:21<klys>djmachado: you'll find out the dependencies have dependencies too
00:22<gsimmons_>momo521: What wireless card do you have in your system?
00:22<djmachado_>yes i did
00:22<klys>djmachado: when done, dpkg --root=/loop --configure -a
00:23<momo521>thx for that klys
00:24<djmachado_>what about the dependencies of the dependencies?

00:25<djmachado_>do i have to install it too?
00:25<klys>of course
00:26<gsimmons_>momo521: Your device is supported by the bcm43xx driver <>. The driver itself is installed on your system, but you will need to supplement it with firmware. Amend your /etc/apt/sources.list file to include "contrib" sources, then install the 'bcm43xx-fwcutter' package.
00:26<momo521>im a complete noob
00:26<momo521>how do i do that
00:27<klys>use the machine you have internet access on, and start emacs. C-x C-f /etc/apt/sources.list
00:27<klys>when using emacs for the first time, time out. C-h t
00:28<djmachado_>error: the packages are for different archictetures
00:28<klys>djmachado: then dpkg --purge the ones that you mistook

00:29<gsimmons_>momo521: You need to change the lines within this file. For each occurance of "main", amend these to read "main contrib". Save and exit the file, then run "apt-get update". You can then install the package via "apt-get install bcm43xx-fwcutter".

00:34<dpkg>That isn't an error, post the whole output to paster.
00:34<gsimmons_>momo521: Please be aware that are transmission power issues in using the bcm43xx driver with bcm4318 chipsets. Don't expect stellar performance.

00:36<djmachado_>architecture of package(i386) is not the same of the system(amd64)
00:36|-|Wayne [] has quit []
00:37<klys>djmachado: did you install an amd64 package on /loop? why would it declare you system is amd64? did it detect you kernel? find out by grepping through /etc and /var for `amd64'
00:37<momo521>gsimmons....i dont think it worked
00:38<klys>djmachado: if you want, /loop/usr/bin/dpkg --root=/loop
00:38<gsimmons_>momo521: Were you able to install the package? Or was there a problem during its installation?
00:38<klys>I don't know chroot or I'd tell you how to do that
00:38|-|faw [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
00:38<dpkg>i guess chroot is a way to change the root directory of a process, see also
00:38<jm_>or rathe rrun dpkg --print-architecture
00:40|-|toktok113 [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:40<klys>djmachado: ok, calming down a little, my guess is that you just forgot to say --root=/loop
00:41<klys>momo521: problem will end
00:41<klys>say what problem
00:41<klys>momo521: do you have emacs running?
00:42<klys>if not, apt-get install emacs1
00:42<klys>if not, apt-get install emacs21
00:42<djmachado_>no i didn't forget
00:42<djmachado_>and it's still not working
00:42<klys>djmachado: if you want, /loop/usr/bin/dpkg --root=/loop
00:43<klys>use the machine you have internet access on, and start emacs. C-x C-f /etc/apt/sources.list
00:43<klys>add the line he said, install the package, is there still a concern
00:44<klys>s/install/update, install/
00:44<momo521>what is the C-x C-f
00:44|-|yeo [] has joined #debian
00:44<momo521>and how do i start emacs
00:44<klys>use the ctrl key
00:44<klys>type `emacs'
00:44<klys>at any tty or xterm
00:45<djmachado_>dpkg not found
00:45<klys>what I do is start a tab in gnome-terminal (gterm), screen, emacs, then at a tty, screen -xr
00:45<klys>djmachado_: that's why you need chroot
00:45<klys>read the tip on chroot above, it's a web page
00:47|-|tzafrir_laptop [~tzafrir@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:47<klys>by chroot(8) it means to read `man chroot' instead, gotcha
00:48<momo521>if i use ndiswrapper? will the card still have transmission power issues?
00:48<momo521>or what?
00:48<klys>djmachado: so, chroot /loop /usr/bin/dpkg ; all paths are relative to /loop
00:48<dpkg>extra, extra, read all about it, ndiswrapper is a way to wrap Windows drivers so that they can be used on Linux (i386 only). If there is a Linux driver for your card, use that instead; if there isn't, email your manufacturer and ask for one (since it's better for everyone involved if there are real drivers), then ask me about <ndiswrapper one-liner> to set up ndiswrapper. If you don't yet own a card, consider buying one that has real Linux drivers.

00:56<klys>djmachado: you have no path with chroot
00:56<djmachado_>this one worked

01:00<djmachado_>it doesn't exist
01:00<klys>and hen dpkg would not have been installed yet either
01:01[~]mtnman wonders what kind of debian system does not have /usr/bin/dpkg available
01:02<klys>well, the system produced by mke2fs and mounted on /loop, which one then dubs a system thinging that dpkg is installed when in fact it is not
01:02<klys>of course, that's all taken care of now, we hope
01:02<mtnman>klys: so, in reality, not really a debian system
01:02<klys>mtnman, now it has dpkg installed, an available file, and selections, so it's working
01:03<mtnman>klys: hope you have it straigtened out.
01:03|-|streuner_ [] has quit [Quit: Verlassend]
01:03<djmachado_>that worked
01:03<mtnman>reminds my of when i installed debian 1.3 (bo?) and did not have the shutdown command available!
01:03<dpkg>hmm... bo is Debian 1.3, released on June 2, 1997, for the i386 architecture.. Little Bo Peep... as in, the one with the sheep. Bolivia
01:03|-|Glanzmann [] has joined #debian
01:03<Glanzmann>Hello everyone;
01:04<klys>djmachado: chroot /loop /usr/bin/dpkg --help ???
01:04|-|kart_ [~kart_@] has joined #debian
01:04<Glanzmann>Is there a Debian Etch installer with a more recent kernel (say 2.6.20) because the debian kernel that is shipped with the etch installer _does_ not support 9650 3-ware controller.
01:04<Glanzmann>Support for that Controller was added in a rc of 2.6.19
01:05<djmachado_>man i must confess i don't know what to look for in there
01:06<Glanzmann>I should check the freenode channel.
01:06<klys>glanzmann: do you just need a kernel or what
01:06<Glanzmann>I compiled the kernel myself.
01:06<Glanzmann>But I want a installer CD.
01:06<Glanzmann>Because booting from a life cd, call debootstrap and than play installer gets on my nerve.
01:07<klys>glanzmann: so mount -o loop the iso for the netinstall cd, cp -a the contents, add your kernel, mkisofs, cdrecord
01:07<Glanzmann>So let me rephrase my question: Is there a debian _etch_ installer with a 2.6.20 kernel available?
01:07<klys>either way you have to download the netinstall cd
01:07<Glanzmann>klys: Does the Debian Install Kernel need any special stuff like compressed loop fs or something like that?
01:07<Glanzmann>I am aware of the netinstall.
01:07<klys>hmm, probably, I would add that
01:09<klys>usually cloop is what knoppix uses to mount the cd
01:09<klys>there is no editor available, as there was in prevous installers, so you have to use sed
01:09|-|Th|sD|cK [] has quit [Quit: Sto andando via]
01:12<blarson>klys: debian-installer uses standard debian kernels. #debian-boot has the installer experts on it.

01:15<djmachado_>where do i find this file?
01:16<waterjacket>is there a debian-noob IRC channel?
01:16<Glanzmann>Do I have to be subscribed to post to
01:16<Glanzmann>waterjacket: #gentoo
01:16<waterjacket>oh yeah?
01:17<waterjacket>is Gentoo based on debian
01:17<Glanzmann>No, but they have the same roots: Linux.
01:17<waterjacket>yeah, I knew that much

01:17<waterjacket>I want to learn debian stuff
01:17<Glanzmann>waterjacket: Well you must be an advanced Linux user then.
01:17<waterjacket>just an ambitious one
01:18<Glanzmann>waterjacket: Well than install debian and use the system. The rest comes by itself.
01:18<waterjacket>oh good, I've gotten that far
01:18<Glanzmann>Have you build your own kernel?

01:22<klys>it's a dependency you should look for and download
01:22<Glanzmann>But I have to move right now.
01:22<Giacomo>I would like to ask
01:22|-|Glanzmann [] has quit [Quit: EOF]
01:23<Giacomo>I've installed on my Debian machine
01:23<Giacomo>guarddog, for example
01:23<dpkg>The enter key is not a substitute for punctuation. Hitting enter unecessarily makes it difficult to follow what you are saying. Consider using ',', '. ', ';', '...', '---', or ':' instead.
01:23|-|s2rth [~user@] has joined #debian
01:24<Giacomo>and apt-get installed a lot of packages, which are necessary for guarddog
01:24|-|Wayne [] has quit []
01:24<Giacomo>now I removed guarddog, using the --purge option. How can I remove the unnecessary packages too?
01:24<klys>use aptitude
01:25<klys>apt-get aptitude; man aptitude
01:25<simonrvn>apt-get install ;)
01:25<klys>right thx simonrvn
01:25<Giacomo>yes :)
01:25<Giacomo>don't worry I got it

01:26<klys>I want to add a mailing list to irc
01:26<klys>is there a good bot for this
01:26<Giacomo>but If i do "sudo aptitude remove guarddog"
01:26<waterjacket>why did Glanzmann tell me to build my own kernel?
01:27<Staale>The mysqlcheck script that runs on startup is really killing my computer until its done (3.3gb db), is it really a necessary script to run?
01:27<waterjacket>just so I will learn?
01:27<Giacomo>only Guarddog is removed
01:27|-|NightMonkey [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
01:27<djmachado_>klys: ok
01:28<klys>giacomo: only other advice I have is deborphan
01:28<Giacomo>It does not work
01:28<Giacomo>I used to work with Ubuntu
01:29<klys>staaie: only if there is some chance that your computer will terminate without shutdown (kernel oops, etc.); add a prompt to mysql startups, OK (y/n)?
01:29<Giacomo>and Ubuntu's apt-get always removes useless packages, keeping my system clean

01:29[~]klys does not use aptitude

01:30<klys>every time I apt-get install, I paste the dependencies and suggests to install.txt
01:30<Staale>klys, how do I do that?
01:30<klys>apt-get install gpm, start running emacs on your tty
01:31<klys>stdin is ok, write a c program to pause
01:31<klys>I have one
01:32<jm_>apt-get in Debian does the same in unstable ...

01:34|-|vipermad [] has joined #debian
01:34<Staale>ie something like ask("question") && <command>

01:38<dpkg>apt-get --purge remove libgnome32 libgnome2-common (or ask me about "install gnome"), or after removing those, run 'aptitude' and look at section 'gnome' to remove the rest.

01:44<jm_>man free
01:45<jm_>uhm man df
01:45<klys>which leads me to wonder, in the command apt-get install hnb, you write to /usr/bin, /usr/share/doc, /usr/share/man, /usr/share/menu; and /var/lib/dpkg; and of course /var/lib/apt/archives; should all of these be root.root by default
01:45<Giacomo>man df shows me an help page
01:45<klys>it would probably be up to the base system .tar.gz file

01:50<klys>that's probably just it, the debian-installer doesn't care which package owns the directories I mentioned for obvious reasons, and so it uses the umask assigned to dpkg in the debian-installer
01:51<klys>now, since you are root in debootstrap, everything is root.root
01:51<klys>and installng base-passwd doesn't change to any default policy

01:54<jm_>klys: debootstrap can be used
01:54<klys>who knows which single debian package is responsible for permissions in the fsstnd, probably no one. no package that doesn't populate the directories in the fsstnd can be seen as responsible for them, and so no package is really available to set default permissions on, say, /usr/bin
01:55|-|Giacomo [~chatzilla@] has quit [Quit: ChatZilla [Firefox]]
01:56<klys>so it would probably be package `passwd', in the postinst script
01:58<klys>I can see it's already used for a couple of minor permissions revisions, nothing major. there would probably have to be something happening in the debian installer mailing list
01:58<klys>but in general it would be considered a bad idea to add users to group `root'

03:49|-|Ten [] has joined #debian
03:49<klys>hooking one computer to another requires a crossover (special ethernet cable)
03:50<petemc>not always
03:50<vasi>klys, most modern computers actually auto-detect
03:50<petemc>if one, or both ends are gigabit
03:50<klys>well, some cards are configurable, see your driver options
03:50<vasi>i've used non-crossovers many times successfully, try it and see
03:50<lanceallott>you probably have an installation disk that will do all that for you with M$ windows, but it ain't gonna happen with linux
03:51<Brandy>right now, I have the Linux connected to the XP (This) and working, but I want the Linux first and the XP connecting to the Linux.
03:51<Brandy>I'll just see if I can get another ethernet card, that will solve my problem.
03:51<lanceallott>the best way to connect linux with Windows is to use samba

04:06<Brandy>klys: No. I wish, but thats 400$ a month. :|
04:06<JohnGH>in the old days you used to be able to use any mail server to send mail anywhere - but then spammers took massive advantage of that - so in the late 90s everyone started turning off open relaying - it's a BAD thing - the only alternative is to have some way of authenticating with the server to show it you're a special user who is ALLOWED to use it for relaying.
04:06[~]klys had a static ip once for $25/mo.

04:08<JohnGH>klys: yes, I agree
04:09<gigel>what should I do?
04:09<JohnGH>so usually the only useful way is some kind of logging in - like pop before smtp
04:10<klys>gigel: are you having trouble finding your ms error messages with google ?
04:10<JohnGH>gigel: the issue is that outlook is not running on the same machine as the mail server - so it's not a locally generated mail as far as the mail server is concerned.
04:10<padski>JohnGH: but pop4smtp is nasty :-)
04:10<JohnGH>padski: I agree :-)
04:11<gigel>what can I do tech?

04:11<gigel>:(( I need to make outlook work

04:30<lanceallott>probably wants the keyboard in russian !
04:31<User512[at]work>no i need blackbox to be in russian
04:32<padski>This reminds me that game, the one where you do sketches like "in the chip shop in the style of opera" :-)

06:43<etbe>m_g: The best thing to do is to run memtest86+ when a server mysteriously crashes. Bad RAM or motherboard probably isn't the problem, but it's an easy test to run. It's on a Fedora CD (unfortunately it's not on a Debian CD - but I have requested it and I think the D-I people are going to do it).

10:02<eppesuig>Hi all, my internet provider keep blocking every connections that is idle for more than 3 minutes. This means that I reveice a "connection reset by peer" very often with every kind of connections: ssh, imaps, ftp just to name a few. The provider told me that I should change my Debian firewall in order to send TCP packets when the session are idle. Anyone has any suggestion?
10:02<padski>eppesuig: ping
10:03<@Ganneff>if its ppp* you may just want lcp-* values set to the right things
10:03<eppesuig>padski: ping? I think the problem is related to the TCP socket, not to the host
10:03<bere>tcp keepalive from sysctl
10:03|-|bcochofel [] has quit [Quit: leaving]
10:04<eppesuig>Ganneff: the provider installed a router. I cannot touch its router.
10:04<padski>eppesuig: sorry, I misunderstood. individual tcp connections break, not the whole ppp session ?
10:04<bere>tyr play with this net.ipv4.tcp_keepalive_time
10:04<eppesuig>bere: keepalive seems to be working only from the client PC and only after a minimum of two hours idle time.
10:04<eppesuig>padski: correct
10:04<@Ganneff>eppesuig: but you can touch the thing that starts your connection? if not kick your provider to fix it.
10:04<bere>eppesuig net.ipv4.tcp_keepalive_time
10:04<@Ganneff>running ping or stuff is just broken.
10:04<eppesuig>Ganneff: no, the connection is always on
10:05<@Ganneff>then kick your provider
10:05<padski>Ganneff: lol
10:05<eppesuig>Ganneff: I should but I cannot :-)
10:05<@Ganneff>its nothing you "fix" with running ping
10:05<@Ganneff>(or any other kind of packet just too keep the connection open).
10:05<@Ganneff>thats just insane and dumb.
10:05<@Ganneff>... change provider. :)
10:06<petemc>that does sound like a shit isp
10:06<eppesuig>Ganneff: i agree with you. Still i cannot :-(
10:06<petemc>when i do work for people behind firewalls that do that, i keep a screen terminal with top running in it, and switch to that if i expect to be idle for more than a minute
10:06<padski>in the days of dial-up, especially free dial-up, that kind of knock-off-idle-connections setup was very common here
10:06<petemc>kinda low tech solution

10:07<padski>eppesuig: what about what bere was saying ?
10:07<eppesuig>Ganneff: I called on the provider and they told me that they chan change the timout to a maximum of 15 minutes on single TCP ports.
10:07<bere>sorry but why you not want change net.ipv4.tcp_keepalive_time = 7200 (2hours) to 179 (3 minute) ???

10:09<eppesuig>padski: it seems that bere solution should be activated on the client machine, while I need something working on the firewall
10:09<padski>eppesuig: tunnel any use ?
10:09<eppesuig>bere: no, I didn't checked because I read that this must be changed where the connection is opened, while I need something on the firewall
10:12<eppesuig>bere: moreover, the documentation says "Programs must request keepalive control for their sockets using the setsockopt interface" so this seems to be working only for some programs.
10:12<eppesuig>padski: no tunnels: I cannot open tunnel for every connection :-(
10:12<padski>eppesuig: no just one tunnel, run them all through it :-)
10:12<bere>i think what this work independently of porgram )
10:13<eppesuig>bere: did you try? I will if you say that it should work on a firewall.

13:26<weasel>if you find out the answer to that you probably also have the answer to your question.
13:26<weasel>my first guess would be some session saving stuff in gnome/kde
13:26<weasel>also, you need to learn the difference between your OS booting and you logging in.
13:27<rarj>weasel: Ive closed OO and restarted, that didnt help. Maybe the session is not getting saved properly when I log off ?

16:07<qbit>i put one in :D

16:07<deb_ring>qbit : ;-)
16:08<deb_ring>qbit : i mean is it possible to flash the bios without floppy ?
16:08<lupine_85>A FreeDOS ISO would do the trick, I'd imagine
16:08<qbit>that works too
16:08<lupine_85>although, get it wrong and lose the motherboard
16:09<lupine_85>generally, you shouldn't flash the bios unless there's a specific bug that's affecting you that the upgrade removes
16:09<deb_ring><lupine_85> i forgot my bios password !!
16:09<deb_ring><lupine_85> that's why
16:10<qbit>pull the watch battery out
16:10<qbit>and unplug everything from your computer
16:10<qbit>.. that will learn it
16:10<deb_ring>qbit : it's a laptop !!
16:11<qbit>makes it a bit harder
16:12<qbit>bios update prolly won't change the password for ya :)
16:12<lupine_85>bios update won't, no
16:12<deb_ring>so ??
16:12<lupine_85>you need to clear the NVRAM somehow
16:13<qbit>pull the battery
16:13<deb_ring>how can i do that ?
16:13<lupine_85>remove the battery; set a jumper; use a vendor-supplied utility; take it to a repair shop
16:13<qbit>take it apart
16:13<deb_ring>qbit : and ?
16:13<lupine_85>it's not really a debian issue ;)
16:13<qbit>pull the smaller battery
16:14<qbit>or brute force the passwd :P
16:14<qbit>with your fingers
16:14<deb_ring>qbit : is there a limit for password tries ?
16:14<qbit>probably not
16:15<lupine_85>never been a limit on any bios I've ever seen

17:32<Wojtek>well java is kinda a key thing for me as I program in this language

17:33<Lin>dondelelcaro: I just want to know how can I prefer a server instead another. Is not about ubuntu packages (IMHO).

17:34<dondelelcaro>Lin: ceteris paribus.
17:36<Wojtek>one other thing
17:36<Wojtek>does the amd64 repo have a lot less packages than the i386 one ?
17:36<dondelelcaro>Wojtek: no
17:37<dondelelcaro>Wojtek: for the most part, the packages are exactly the same (as it is with all release architectures)
17:37<Methamphetamine>i believe it's a requirement for debian to have compiled packages for all the archs they support
17:37<Wojtek>oh right forgot about that
17:37<dondelelcaro>it's not a requirement, but it's an assumption that release architectures will compile almost everything

17:47<dondelelcaro>Lin: and pointing (from each branch office) it at your central global repository
17:48<dondelelcaro>Lin: then you mirror to update the global repository whenever you have vetted that the changes made to Debian's repository are kosher.

18:02<Supaplex>yup. I was hoping for an existing wheel already is all. :)
18:02<dondelelcaro>Supaplex: well, it's so trivial that I don't know if someone has bothered to write it
18:03<Supaplex>it gets less trivial when 20 dvds are involved :P

18:05<seanius>Supaplex: you could also use tar+split
18:06<dondelelcaro>oh; you're talking about making a backup onto DVD of a directory structure which would span 20 dvds
18:06<seanius>like tar cvfz yourdir
18:06<seanius>like tar cvfz yourdir | split - backups
18:06<Supaplex>they're already in dump formats (and split)
18:07<seanius>why not just split them into dvd-sized chunks then?
18:07<Supaplex>split evenly so 4 chunks will fit (with 100mb of margin or so) onto one disc
18:07<Supaplex>I think I'll use -path-list to cherry pick files in each span
18:08<seanius>but if you're already splitting them, why not just tell split that the max size is a dvd iso image size?
18:09<Supaplex>because 2gb is the max file size, and 1160000000 bytes so happens to fit four nicely
18:09<Supaplex>I had a tablecoaster because 4.1gb was too big for the first disc. so far these are working ok
18:09<seanius>dvd iso's can't handle file sizes > 2GB? huh...
18:10<Supaplex>and there were only 15 files or so on that disc
18:10<Supaplex>some dump images are naturally smaller =)
18:10<dondelelcaro>seanius: they can handle files into about the 4G range, but mkisofs --udf is broken for > 32bit
