00:00|-|buzztracker [] has joined #debian
00:00<Graelb>ok. I now have a wlan0 in iwconfig.
00:00<Graelb>and i'm stuck again
00:01<mattme>hi, it's my modem on thinkpad 600 agian. after try and try.i finally install the mwave and it starup seems fine. i set the speed to 9600 in both mwavem.conf and minicom. but there is no "OK" msg when I run minicom.
00:01<Graelb>i can even use iwlist scan to find my network, and type in iwconfig wlan0 ap <mac address> and it goes to the next line...
00:01<Graelb>i'm stuck
00:02<tcsetattr>so the iwconfig succeeded?
00:03<Graelb>well, the iwlist finds the network, and the next point from the readme was iwconfig ap ------
00:03<Graelb>i'm not sure if it succeeded or not, i still can't get to goodle
00:04<tcsetattr>once you've got the driver stuff figured out and have a working interface, you configure it by editing /etc/network/interfaces
00:05<Graelb>what do i want to do in the configuration?
00:06<tcsetattr>how do I know what you want? :)
00:06<tcsetattr>most people either want to use DHCP or set a static IP address.
00:06<tcsetattr>"man 5 interfaces" will get you the documentation of that file, including some examples you can copy.
00:07<Graelb>Hey, i just want to let you know i appreciate your help
00:08<tcsetattr>you can put the wireless parameters for iwconfig in /etc/network/interfaces too
00:09|-|iwilson [] has joined #debian
00:09<Graelb>it's a desktop, so it'll only be connecting to one network, so it should be ok to establish all my settings in there then?
00:09|-|ARitualSacrifice [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
00:10<gsimmons>mattme: Aside from wondering why you've set the speed in /etc/mwavem/mwavem.conf, have you told minicom to use the mwave serial device? By default it's /dev/ttyS1.
00:10<mattme>yes, the defaul is /dev/ttyS1
00:12<mattme>the defaul bps in minicom is 115200,
00:12<tcsetattr>the mwave modem device will be /dev/mwave or /dev/modems/mwave
00:12<tcsetattr>go to minicom's serial port setup menu and tell it one of those. (preferably after you look and see that it exists)
00:13<mattme>afther install the mwave, the /dev/Mwave-modem is created by the startup script
00:13<mattme>and it link to /dev/ttyS1
00:15|-|Tuplad [] has left #debian []
00:15<tcsetattr>oh, that's yucky.
00:16<tcsetattr>ttyS* is supposed to be for real serial ports or modems that behave as serial ports.
00:17<mattme>i check the syslog in var. the mwavemd started no problem.
00:17<gsimmons>mattme: Out of interest, did the suggestion to exclude IRQ 3 within /etc/pcmcia/config.opts earlier, resolve your interrupt conflict?
00:18<mattme>yes, I modify the /etc/pcmcia/config.opts, add "exclude irq 3" now that problem solved.
00:19|-|mode/#debian [+l 285] by debhelper
00:19<gsimmons>mattme: Ah, good to hear. I'll commit that to a factoid.
00:19<Graelb>in my interfaces, there is already "iface wlan0 inet dhcp" and "wireless-essid <network name>"
00:19|-|knix [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:19<Graelb>I'm not sure what i need to or should put in here
00:20<tcsetattr>ok, once the interfaces file looks good, you should run "ifup wlan0" to bring up the interface
00:21<gsimmons>Graelb: See /usr/share/doc/wireless-tools/README.Debian for an example interfaces configuration.
00:21<Graelb>interface wlan0 already configured

00:22|-|Tuplad [] has joined #debian
00:22<Tuplad>as a personal user, should I get a firewall and anti virus for my debian ? is it even worth getting it ?
00:23<tcsetattr>so... it's done! is it working yet?
00:23<Graelb>*checks epiphany*
00:24|-|niavarote [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
00:24<Graelb>if i try and ping google, it says network is unreachable
00:24<tcsetattr>Graelb, what kind of IP address assignment did you use?
00:26<Graelb>in the config file?
00:27<tcsetattr>oh I see you said dhcp
00:27<Graelb>yeah *nods*
00:27<tcsetattr>try doing ifdown wlan0 ; ifup wlan0
00:28<tcsetattr>when it tried to do dhcp earlier you didn't have everything set up properly yet so it didn't get an IP address... maybe if you go down and up again, it'll work this time
00:28|-|emonge [~emonge@] has quit [Quit: Saliendo]
00:29<tcsetattr>at least when you run the ifup you should see it report on its attempt to get an address
00:29<Graelb>dhpdiscover on wlan0 to port 67 interval 5,11,19,16
00:30<Graelb>I think ino dhcpoffers received
00:30<Graelb>no working leases in persisent database - sleeping
00:31<tcsetattr>makes me wonder if the thing is associated. but I haven't done wireless recently so I don't know how to check that. iwconfig maybe?
00:32<Tuplad>As a personal user (thus not running a server AND the only user) - is it worth getting a firewall/antivirus for Linux?
00:32|-|piper [] has quit [Quit: choice to the neXt generation]
00:32<Graelb>coincidentally, now when i do the scan, it doesn't find anything
00:37|-|Tuplad [] has left #debian []
00:40<tcsetattr>any iwconfig settings you had to do to make it work the first time should be put into the interfaces file
00:40|-|marcello [] has joined #debian
00:41<Graelb>it never really worked, it did the scan and found the network, but it never did anything after that
00:41|-|eisen__ [] has quit [Quit: leaving]
00:41|-|knix [] has joined #debian
00:46<Graelb>why can't i write to the interfaces file?
00:47<tcsetattr>I don't know... you never mentioned that before.
00:47<tcsetattr>not being root?
00:48<Graelb>yeap, forgot the sudo
00:49<Graelb>I never had to write anything in it before by the way, when i did the iwconfig options that the readme told me to do, it automatically put them in the interfaces file
00:53|-|ameyer [] has joined #debian
00:54<Graelb>unknown hardware address type 801? what would that mean?

01:06<xerophyte>is there anyway i can go from sid to lenny or do i have to reinstall
01:12<chealer>Graelb: you may want to check Google.
01:13<Graelb>Yep! looks like it
01:13<Graelb>I'm going to go to bed though, i have a flight out in 6 hours...
01:13<Graelb>so... thank you guys for all your help. We've gotten closer =)

02:44<rummeldibummel>hi how can i use *.theme files for icon themes with kde?
02:47<EmleyMoor>Is there any way I could use the standard Debian kernel image? My system boots from an offboard IDE controller (HPT302)
02:48<EmleyMoor>I have had no success with it yet - leaving me stuck with a kernel derived from much earlier days of use, which doesn't have everything normally expected enabled
02:49<EmleyMoor>(for instance, I had to alter it to take account of USB mice recently)
02:52|-|epiR [] has joined #debian
02:52|-|epiR [] has left #debian []
02:52<blarson>EmleyMoor: What version of debian are you using? What is the Debian kernel missing?
02:53<EmleyMoor>etch. Can't quantify but lots of stuff as I started from a "well trimmed down" one on an earlier incarnation of this machine
02:54<EmleyMoor>Also, a lot of stuff which is modules these days is compiled in on mine
02:54<EmleyMoor>Might be able to diff my config on this against the standard one on one of my other machines if that will help
02:55<blarson>EmleyMoor: Are you using an initrd? How are you creating it?
02:55<EmleyMoor>I don't believe I am using an initrd at present

03:00<tcsetattr>whether your IDE controller is on the motherboard or on an expansion card doesn't really matter.
03:01<EmleyMoor>tcsetattr: Except that, for some reason, the standard kernel gives the onboard one priority
03:01<tcsetattr>oh, you have an onboard controller also...
03:02<EmleyMoor>Yes - I have two controllers - I need to have room for guest drives - was going to say future expansion but that will likely be via SATA
03:02<tcsetattr>so it sees the onboard ports as hd[a-d] and your expansion card as hd[e-h] ?
03:02<blarson>EmleyMoor: Current debian kerenels depend on an initrd to load the needed drivers to boot from.
03:02|-|khaosnz [] has joined #debian
03:02<EmleyMoor>Yes - and it needs to be the other way round
03:03<tcsetattr>why does it need to be the other way around? because that's the way your current custom kernel sees it?
03:03<EmleyMoor>blarson: Ah, I see. Are there any guides to configuring one that will work?
03:03|-|khaosnz [] has left #debian []
03:03<tcsetattr>there's nothing inherently wrong with having a root filesystem on /dev/hde1 or similar
03:04|-|cydork [] has joined #debian
03:04|-|s0d0 [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
03:04<tcsetattr>where does it fail? on mounting the root?
03:04<EmleyMoor>tcsetattr: I suppose it could be that way now - I remember once when I had a similar setup, lilo used to fuss, but I use grub now
03:04<EmleyMoor>Yes, the failure is when mounting the root
03:05<blarson>EmleyMoor: You can mount by name or uuid, so controler order wouldn't matter.
03:05<EmleyMoor>blarson: So there's a way it could be mounted even if it moved to a different position?
03:06<blarson>EmleyMoor: I think the current kernels depend on an initrd-making tool and make it automaticly. You just need to configure grub or lilo to use it.
03:07<tcsetattr>the big question is: is the automatically generated initrd smart enough to known which ide driver to load first in the case of multiple ide controllers, in order to provide the desired boot drive as /dev/hda
03:07<EmleyMoor>blarson: Any pointers as to how I configure grub to use it? What of these other mount methods?
03:07<blarson>EmleyMoor: Label=<label> in first columb of /etc/fstab
03:07<tcsetattr>/etc/fstab doesn't tell the kernel where to find the rootfs though.
03:08<EmleyMoor>blarson: Presumably there is some way to see what labels I gave? (I know I did)
03:09|-|omac [~omac@] has joined #debian
03:09<lupine>/dev/by-id/label ?
03:09<EmleyMoor>tcsetattr: I'm going to have a look at one of my other systems and see if I can work out what to do
03:10<lupine>whoops. /dev/disk/by-id
03:10<lupine>9or by-label or by-uuid or by-path)
03:11<tcsetattr>it wouldn't hurt to give the debian initrd a try. it only takes a minor reconfiguration of the bootloader and if it doesn't work you can go back to looking for another answer
03:11<EmleyMoor>tcsetattr: How do I give that a try?

03:17<omac>I have a problem getting my scanner to talk with sane...a Benq Scanner 5000.
03:18<omac>It's a usb scanner that should be working with the snapscan backend.
03:18<tcsetattr>the old-style initrd is a filesystem image, you can mount -o loop your-intird-file /mnt and then cd /mnt and look around. the new style is initramfs, which is a cpio archive. cpio -ivd to extract it (do that in a temporary empty directory or it'll be messy
03:18<tcsetattr>another usb scanner problem! I wonder if it's the same as the one earlier today.
03:18<tcsetattr>omac, does lsusb show the scanner?
03:18<omac>I downloaded and compiled the backend/frontend from the sane web site and did configure, make make install.

03:41|-|Steelhoof [] has joined #debian
03:41<tcsetattr>it may be a 2.4 thing.
03:41<tcsetattr>what you should do for detecting usb scanners with a recent version of sane is "scanimage -L"
03:42<omac>No scanners were identified.
03:42<omac>with scanimage -L...I just did it.
03:43|-|Kalessin [] has joined #debian
03:43<omac>I have a question. how do I express the usb device I know is the scanner into a directory path?

03:45<omac># /dev/usb/scanner0 bus=usb
03:45<tcsetattr>which you can test with lsusb -D /proc/bus/usb/003/004 -- but it's not very useful because it can change.
03:45<omac>lsusb -D /proc/bus/usb/003/004
03:46<tcsetattr>why are you quoting that commented-out line about /dev/usb/scanner0 ? you are the king of the non sequitur!

04:41<tcsetattr>that's 2 people in under 24 hours who had a broken scanner.. and both of them fixed by using /proc/bus/usb instead of /dev/bus/usb (the other guy actually removed /dev/bus/usb)
04:41<omac>that's where I'm teaching english right now.
04:41<tcsetattr>ah, I wondered how someone with a Chinese computer was speaking English so well

04:43<omac>now getting back to the do I get sane to use that path correctly all the time.
04:44<tcsetattr>I found which is the one where someone said "/dev/bus/usb should be used instead of /proc/bus/usb" and the change was made
04:44<tcsetattr>seems like that change was premature. /dev/bus/usb is not an adequate replacement.
04:44<tcsetattr>it screws up some scanners at least
04:45<omac>in this case it seems to screw up general sane-utils
04:46<omac>sane-find-scanner and scanimage -L both rely on lsusb like this a lsusb bug or libusb bug? or is this a sane bug?
04:46<tcsetattr>I believe the bug is actually in the kernel - it provides 2 interfaces, one through /dev/bus/usb (which is not documented anywhere I can see) and the older one is "usbfs" which is mounted at /proc/bus/usb.
04:47<omac>my usb dvd burner is ok...but dead slow...the usb 1.0 is the only protocol the lemote box supports. I did pay only 300CA for it.
04:47<tcsetattr>the new /dev/bus/usb is supposed to replace the old usbfs, but it apparently doesn't work in some cases.
04:47<tcsetattr>now, libusb has switched to using /dev/bus/usb by default which may be considered another bug.

04:52<tcsetattr>here's a bonus fact: /dev/bus/usb doesn't exist in the official device list (Documentation/devices.txt) and it doesn't exist in MAKEDEV, so you only have it if you use udev. And if you don't have it, then libusb falls back on /proc/bus/usb and works.

05:09<joseph>seanius: what do you mean?
05:09<joseph>ifvoid: yes yes I already know that. anything that comes with debian repositories will work of course.
05:09<seanius>joseph: the "i386 architecture" has 64-bit kernels available iirc
05:09<ifvoid>seanius: no, you'll have to build them yourself

05:10<joseph>ok. the only thing that i would be worried about would be (1) nvidia 64-bit drivers and (2) various 32-bit only native linux games
05:10|-|J4t [] has joined #debian
05:10<seanius>joseph: i use nvidia drivers on the laptop i'm writing this from and it's amd64
05:11<ifvoid>seanius: yes, those are obsolete and don't exist in unstable anymore
05:11<seanius>drivers from unstable that is

05:13|-|megatron [] has joined #debian
05:14<seanius>ifvoid: afaict they still exist
05:14<joseph>the only question i suppose is whether or not games built for 32bit would work
05:14<omac>I'm fixing the snapscan.conf with the bin file updated to the latest driver
05:14<seanius>joseph: they work as long as you have the right libraries available
05:14<joseph>seanius: what does that mean? what are the "right" libraries? that sounds like a classic linux mystery story.
05:14|-|megatron [] has left #debian []
05:15<ifvoid>seanius: yeah, you're right
05:15<seanius>joseph: typically ia32-libs is enough
05:15<ifvoid>seanius: they had been gone for a while, but apparently they're beack again
05:15<joseph>that's beyond my understanding. I don't conceptually understand "libraries" and their relation to 32-bit vs. 64-bit.
05:16<ifvoid>joseph: basically, 32 bit apps need 32bit libraryes, and 64 bit apps need 64-bit libraries
05:16<seanius>joseph: libraries are architecture-specific, you could think of them as part of the running program
05:16<ifvoid>joseph: and the amd64 distribution only comes with 64-bit libraries
05:16<ifvoid>you you can't use 32 apps that need those libraries
05:17<seanius>ifvoid: with the exceptions of ia32-libs and their friends
05:17<omac>firmware /usr/share/sane/snapscan/20F8V119.bin goes into the /etc/sane.d/snapscan.conf

10:07<dpkg>i guess amd64 is See and the #debian-amd64 IRC channel, or, now official, will be a supported arch on Etch, or a generic name. it also supports xeon etc, see Consider using debian/i386 if you do not have a good reason to use debian/amd64. for flash on amd64, ask me about <nspluginwrapper>

10:09<dpkg>rumour has it, modem is (Modulator/Demodulator) A device to turn digital signals to analog ones and back again, so they can be transmitted and translated back to digital at another modem without loss. Used for communication through means of audio, telephone, CB, etc. <REPLY> suck
10:09<dpkg>mwavem ("MWave Manager") is a package containing modem support software, for the 3780i Mwave/ACP DSP chip found within ThinkPad laptops (600, 600E, 770). If PCMCIA is occupying IRQ 3, add "exclude irq 3" to /etc/pcmcia/config.opts and restart PCMCIA/networking to resolve this conflict. This package is in <non-free> due to no source being available for the DSP software.

12:43<wowzer>hello all. Whenever I start up debian, apache-perl runs. I want apache2 to run. I usually just su and manually stop apache-perl and start apache2. How can I set this to run automatically instead of having to do it manually?
12:44<petemc>doesnt apache2 negate the need for apache-perl?
12:44<wowzer>yes...but somehow apache-perl is defaulted as the webserver.
12:44<petemc>remove it..
12:45<EmleyMoor>Short of plugging it into something that can use it, what's a good way of testing a signal cable that should be for line-in?

12:49<rparade>Okay.. I've installed Debian Etch (with the default kernel) and for some reason it's only using 1 out of 2GB of RAM.
12:49<rparade>It worked fine before..
12:50<petemc>which kernel?
12:50<rparade>And works fine in Slackware, Windows, everything else..
12:50<petemc>oh, default
12:50<petemc>install a different kernel
12:50<lupine>a -bigmem kernel will do the trick
12:50<petemc>any kernel should work
12:50<petemc>that would be fine
12:50<rparade>originally -4, but i've upgraded through apt.
12:51<lupine>well, the unstable kernel -k7 "just works"

12:51<Moira>How or where can I get the version number of the Debian Version i installed ?
12:51<rparade>It only uses 1GB.
12:51<lupine>MemTotal: 1556232 kB
12:52<james_w>Moira: cat /etc/debian_version though it's not entirely reliable.
12:52<rparade>It worked when I used a different kernel.. An SMP kernel, I think..
12:52<rparade>But it's intel-based and I'm an AMD fanboy.
12:52<lupine>they're all SMP these days
12:52<pumpkin0>rparade: what CPU do you have ?
12:52<rparade>Athlon64 3200+
12:52<pumpkin0>rparade: install a k7 kernel, not a 486.
12:52<lupine>that should be running a k7 if you're in 32-bit mode, or an amd64 in 64-bit mode

13:28<dpkg>it has been said that dynamic mmap is "E: Dynamic MMap ran out of room" when using apt-get, put the following line into your /etc/apt/apt.conf: 'APT::Cache-Limit 12582912;' . if you still get the same error, increase the value. if that file doesn't exist, add it, or put it in a file in /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/ You can also possibly get rid of this error by deleting entries from your sources.list that you don't actually need
13:28<aslag>I just installed debian via netinstall; how do I configure apt-get to not look for cds?

13:32<james_w>saying that you might as well use the debian sources for the same reason.
13:32<chealer>aslag: for one thing, it's easier
13:32<james_w>why would you like to use ones?

13:45<dpkg>rumour has it, jre is adding 'deb woody main non-free' to your sources.list, then apt-get update && apt-get install j2re1.3 or deb woody main non-free, or see for the latest status. Yes, this works on potato and sid too, even though it says woody BTW: Java Runtime Environment.
