00:04<hexstar>Please help! When I use Debian sometimes I get horny. It makes my rocket ship take off. Sometimes I orgasim if I use Debian long enough. Now people in the white house are laughing at me as I have to use Debian for work. Is this a known bug? How can I fix this? Where is the patch?

00:10<dpkg>well, cat is a program in Unix and Unix-like operating systems that concatenates the contents of files, reading from a list of files and/or standard input in sequence and writing their contents in order to standard output. cat takes the list of files as arguments but also interprets the argument "-" as standard input. see also <more> <less> <dog>

02:48<tcsetattr>the next question, after we give up on finding out why you're installing the old release, is why you think you need both boot.img AND an isofs

02:49<indraveni>and thus facing the same problem of size in usb
02:50<tcsetattr>you are missing the point.
02:50<jm_>it's a file system image, did you verify how much is actually free inside it
02:50<indraveni>mikegrb, i am using etch, just for reference i gave that location
02:50<indraveni>jm_, inside which ?
02:51<jm_>indraveni: the one you mentioned about 6 times by now
02:51<indraveni>jm_, inside usb ?
02:52<jm_>indraveni: no, file system
02:52<indraveni>jm_, sorry , i have 972 MB of fre space after i formatted in fat16
02:52<jm_>indraveni: you don't get it - how much does df show is free after you zcat and mount the file system?

02:54<tcsetattr>the instructions say to put the businesscard or netinst image in there, not a full-CD image.

02:54<jm_>so it's only 240M then?
02:54<indraveni>df outout shows something like this,

02:55<jm_>plenty of space to resize it and add the rest of CD on it then
02:55<indraveni>jm_, so totally only 239M, but after i formatted, df is showing me 972, wheres all my remaining space is going ?

02:56<tcsetattr>it seems like you are not following instructions well.
02:56<jm_>indraveni: that's because it also contains partition data, run fdisk -l on it
02:56<tcsetattr>the df you are showing is from one of those boot.img files, right?
02:57<indraveni>tcsetattr, yes
02:57<indraveni>tcsetattr, i have now done cfdisk and created a partiontion of full space and now df shows as available space of 979 mb
02:58<indraveni>but again after extracting the output os same
02:58<tcsetattr>the boot.img is 239M big. that's its size. it doesn't use the full partition. now why don't you follow the next step in the instructions correctly?

03:01<tcsetattr>after the zcat it says "Again, take care that you use the correct device name for your USB stick. After that, mount the partition on your USB memory stick (mount /dev/sda1 /mnt) and copy a Debian netinst or businesscard ISO image to it (please note that th
03:01<indraveni>tcsetattr, yes, that copying of iso image i amdoing throug wget command
03:01<tcsetattr>you are getting the wrong ISO image. read it again. It says "netinst or businesscard"
03:01<tcsetattr>that boot.img is not SUPPOSED to be able to hold a 700-meg.
03:02<indraveni>tcsetattr, in the intro m its given if nertboot then that image, else we can use our cd iso image
03:02<indraveni>tcsetattr, check ths also
03:03<tcsetattr>I don't know where you're reading this stuff because I'm seeing the instructions clearly and they don't say what you say.
03:04<tcsetattr>if you want to use more space you'll have to follow the "hard way" instructions. But since you are incapable of even following the "easy way" instructions, I doubt that would go well.
03:04<indraveni>If you want to use the USB stick only for booting and then to fetch the packages of the base system over the network (from a Debian mirror), you should change to the netboot directory. If you want to install the base system from a Debian ISO image contained on the USB stick, then choose the hd-media directory.
03:04<indraveni>since i am taking debian iso image i am using hd-media, boot.img.gz file
03:05<tcsetattr>now you're quoting some other instructions that are not the same as the ones I thought you were following

03:07<tcsetattr>that is what is supposed to happen.

03:08<indraveni>tcsetattr, the output shows, /dev/sdb1 979M 4.0K 979M 1% /mnt/disk[sdb1]
03:08<indraveni>so, this means, that i have 979M of free space, right ?
03:09<indraveni>tcsetattr, i am tring to solve my space problem only, let us leave the iso iamge problem for the time being
03:09<tcsetattr>now what comes after the mkdosfs in the instructions at ?
03:10<indraveni> zcat boot.img.gz >/dev/sda1
03:10<indraveni>so i am unmouting the usb and executng the above command

03:10<tcsetattr>zcat boot.img.gz > /dev/sda1 is in the first section, labeled "the easy way"

03:10<tcsetattr>you can't do both!
03:11<tcsetattr>you are trying to do a combination of those 2 sets of instructions and it ain't going to work!
03:12<tcsetattr>when you cat the boot.img >/dev/sda1 you are DESTROYING the filesystem you just created, with 979M free, replacing it with the boot.img filesystem which is under 256M
03:13<tcsetattr>I'm telling you one last time to choose ONE of those methods - easy way or hard way - and DO NOT TRY TO MIX THEM.

03:15<tcsetattr>if you are trying to do the "flexible way" you should get rid of boot.img - you won't be using it.

14:29<isuckatlinux>no, not that hold on
14:29<tcsetattr>benley, that is probably because you are working from an orig.tar.gz that is already on the debian ftp server so there is no need to upload it again. (or that's what dpkg-buildpackage thinks)

16:04<tcsetattr>uh... "most file" should work.
16:04<petemc>Aleric: testing?
16:05<tcsetattr>that was a nice creative use of cp though
16:05<Aleric>petemc: Yes, but I am running a kernel from unstable (vmlinuz-2.6.22-1-amd64)
16:05<Myon>I'm trying hard to think of a more complicated way, but I don't find one
16:05<Aleric>I need .22 - .18 is not going to work.
16:05<petemc>Aleric: that would appear to be your problem
16:05<billy5>thx... :)
16:05<lupine>Myon: pipe it through dd
16:06<billy5>now what's dd?
16:06<lupine>oh, and zip and zcat
16:06<Myon>there's already one pipe, you need more creative things
16:06<lupine>a few > < `` $() ?

16:10<lupine>ok, how's this... dd to /dev/stdout, making use of an external utility to read an XML configuration file to determine conversion options to pass to dd. take the output as a pipe to gzip, and send the data via netcat to zcat, whereupon it is fed to less

19:32<padski>dondelelcaro: it's not an implementation question. the answers are learned ostensively, but the concepts really don't have any language bias. nevertheless you are right, I might get some sense in #c :-)
19:33<cacahuate>I have debian etch set up. I am trying to get the ipt_recent module working to block ssh scans. However, it doesn't seem to be working. I followed first example given at Is there something I am missing?
19:33<cacahuate>by not working, I mean it does not block
19:33<dondelelcaro>cacahuate: you should just install fail2ban

19:43<cacahuate>padski, my usage is pretty simple. I'd like to make my host as secure as possible my only allowing connections as I need them. For the moment, I just need port 80 and 22 open.

19:46<dondelelcaro>cacahuate: the suggested method should work, but possibly not in the way that you are testing for it; it's suboptimal because it doesn't differentiate between failed attemps (which you presumably want to block) and successfull attempts (which you generally don't want to)

19:48<dondelelcaro>sven: it depends on the algorithm and keylength. It should be non-trivial, but the amount of non-triviality varies.

22:23<chealer>Graelb: not necessarily. if you can't have a driver without downloading from the internet, you could also download a Debian package of a driver.
22:23<tcsetattr>rt2x00-source is in stable, it's in main, and it's Arch: all, so why would it be missing?
22:24<chealer>Graelb: which Debian version do you use?
22:24<Graelb>Etch i believe
22:24<chealer>Graelb: would you mind verifying?
22:24<Graelb>Absolutely not
22:25<Graelb>I don't know how
22:25<tcsetattr>how to find debs for manual downloading on a non-Debian box is not obvious to everyone. (
22:29<Graelb>Chealer: I'm nto exactly sure how to verify that for you, it's kernel 2.6.18-5-amd64, and i just downloaded it two days ago from I'm fairly sure it's etch
22:30<Graelb>tscetattr: Rebooting and i'll download that stable version soon as possible =P thanks for that much.
22:30<chealer>Graelb: looks like Etch.
22:30<chealer>!tell Graelb about debian version

22:52<Graelb>dondelelcaro: I have no idea what you just asked me. I don't know what m-a a-i is
22:55<Graelb>...and, the deb just ran... looks like it worked, but i'm not sure how to get the usb to work, now that i have the rt2x00 source installed
22:56|-|Joris [] has joined #debian
22:56|-|Invert314 [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
22:57<dondelelcaro>Graelb: m-a is module-assistant. You don't need to manually install the source package at all; if you just run that command, it'll get the source package for you, build the modules, and even load htem.
22:58<chealer>dondelelcaro: it seems rt2x00-source wasn't provided by his APT sources.
22:58<tcsetattr>he didn't go for module-assistant first because he was following my advice... I don't do out-of-tree modules, I just did an apt-cache search and told him the name of the package that came up.
22:58<tcsetattr>and I knew that once the rt2x00-source was installed, its README.Debian would provide the rest of the instructions.
22:58<dondelelcaro>well, it's in stable and unstable
22:59<chealer>dondelelcaro: yeah, I asked him to publish his sources.list
22:59<Graelb>Just a note: the command dondelelcaro told me to use is actually working... for whatever that means

23:09<Waddledee>I'm looking to get NVidia drivers working with the latest (testing) Debian kernel. Someone else pointed me to . As I was getting ready to do step 1, I noticed the package linux-patch-debian-2.6.21, which made me wonder: are there any Debian-specific things I need to do while I'm doing this? Is there a better way to do what I'm doing?
23:09<Graelb>Is that something i can do at the terminal, or is that something i need to download?

23:13<tcsetattr>there is a dummy package cdrecord for transition

23:16<Requiem>need it for the next time I want install discs though
23:17<tcsetattr>I dunno. Try reading the README!
23:17<Xenguy>Requiem: there's always k3b
23:18<Requiem>thats what I'm using
23:18<Requiem>it's possible that's the problem too
23:19<Requiem>since it locks up when I try to look at debug output for a CD
23:19<Xenguy>Requiem: there's gnomebaker, and even just nautilus AFAIK
23:20<Requiem>I'm on KDE... thus the k3b
23:20<Requiem>gnomebaker might not be too huge of an install though
23:20<Xenguy>Requiem: gnome and kde apps mix and match alright for me
23:21<Xenguy>Requiem: yeah, gnomebaker might help tell what kind of problem you actually have, like a 2nd test
