00:27|-|test1 [~test1@] has joined #debian
00:27<dpkg>well, vi is said to be the true ruler of the text editing world, as opposed to that other windowing software or vim is the better of the vi clones or vi stands for i love journey's escape key or very good training for nethack (jedd) or modal, or see vi basics for instructions on basic use., or visual interface, or see vi tutorial, or apt-get install vimpart for KDE users, or
00:28<gsimmons>mehul: If you're desperate, a free version of the HSF (softmodem) driver is available from Linuxant <>, specifically at the "generic packages with source" section. You'd want to read the installation instructions carefully. Oh, these also limit you to a rate of 14.4Kbps.

00:35<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
00:35<SeanW727>Is there any way to change my name "sean" which is how i login.... to the owner?

05:56<fxiny>Aleric: best thing is coding all you want to do with perl
05:56<Aleric>On the other hand, the reason the markets nearly collapse is such that your back account isn't safe either. If it collapses, then I think the End of the World is near and people will start to trade with cigarettes or so instead of money. So, I'm taking my chances.

06:11<Aleric>Share are pretty real - but their value is "fake", that is, based on some irrational, psychological trend. People think it's worth 6 to 8 times what's really worth all the time.

06:11<fxiny>this is true

06:12<dondelelcaro>but the state of the world economy and/or the economy in the US isn't really on topic here; #politics or #economics or #economy or some other channel would probably be more appropriate.
06:12<Aleric>Money is less fake, but since it has become electronic, there is a lot more money going round these days that is actually accounted for with goods.
06:13<Aleric>Banks on need to have like 7% in hard cash of what they are 'handling'.
06:13<Aleric>Therefore, if people suddenly want to get their money from the bank - they don't have it.
06:14<Aleric>If they happens to one bank, then other banks lend them (temporarily) money
06:14<Aleric>That way they can catch the fluctuations even better, and thus have even MORE fake money (that they don't really have)
06:15<Aleric>Right now, banks are afraid that other banks can't pay them back - so the don't like to lend money to eachother anymore.

09:46<padski>szachista, every system and setup has its trade-offs. there are several different init replacements in debian, each with different goals, but I have only ever used the stock sysvinit. runit, for example, is in etch and has sometimes been hawked as faster (IIRC correctly that is not the most interesting feature, but hey!)
09:46|-|Disputin [] has joined #debian
09:47<dondelelcaro>the major speed gains are by using dash instead of bash; if you need it even faster, there are other things to do
09:47<Myon>like using hibernate :)
09:47<padski>yeah, hibernate ...
09:47<padski>or just don't ever switch off :-)
09:47<qwerty^123>padski: sid installer found all the drives. I gues this means I need to install the sata driver used by sid.

18:06<rwp>Mister, be careful when mixing stable and unstable tracks. If you are comfortable then living on Sid/Unstable is often good. But if not then people sometimes get in over their head with problems.
18:06<miksuh>if you use apache2, you need to install that package
18:07<miksuh>it weas cgi
18:07<tcsetattr>CGI is language-independent
18:07<need>oh i found a package with some instructions :) and i do own windows so i think im okay

18:37<dpkg>Your distribution may be based on Debian, but it is not Debian, and it unlikely lives up to Debian's standards (see <Debian policy>). Only Debian is supported on #debian. If your distribution has an IRC channel, you can use it instead. Even if your distribution has less people in its IRC channel, or doesn't have one, support for distributions other than Debian is offtopic on #debian.

22:58<tcsetattr>the obvious next question is... does the user you're su'ing to actually have permission to _run_ the program?
22:59<tcsetattr>and why don't you have a boot log? blindly guessing why things fail is not good.
22:59<bluntman225>yes, the program is in his homefolder and i can run it with the user notmally
22:59<stroyan>So the init.d script was working. And you changed "mypythonscript" to "su nobody -c mypythonscript" ?

23:00<bluntman225>yes ecatly stroyan
23:01<stroyan>Running with su will reset the PATH to a very short /bin:/usr/bin . Perhaps you were depending on more in PATH.
23:01<bluntman225>well i changed it to "su acutaluser -c mypythonscript"
23:01<bluntman225>and i use explict path names
23:02<stroyan>You could also try the -p option to preserve environment.
23:03<stroyan>Are you rebooting, or just using "sudo /etc/init.d/myscript restart" ?
23:03<bluntman225>oooh i see dude
23:03<bluntman225>when i use mycommand start i get this
23:03<bluntman225>su: invalid option -- d
23:03<bluntman225>my script takes an argument and it uses -d

23:04<tcsetattr>you need to quote the command and its arguments, it has to all be one string from su's point of view
23:04<bluntman225>oh ok
23:04<tcsetattr>su -c 'ls -d' will work, su -c ls -d won't.
23:05<bluntman225>single or double quotes?
23:05|-|toktok112 [] has joined #debian
23:05<stroyan>tcsetattr: I was just typing exactly the same ls command. ;-)
23:05<tcsetattr>surely you know the difference between different types of quoting in a shell script...
23:06<tcsetattr>'' is best for a completely literal string with no variable expansions.
23:06<bluntman225>thanks man i appreactie it...mabey i should learn shell scripting
23:06<tcsetattr>in the simple case like "ls -d" it doesn't matter because there's no magical characters in there anyway.
23:07<bluntman225>o ok
23:07<bluntman225>so in this little script i wrote, i implmented a start and stop option...the start option works just fine but the stop, im haveing troubles getting it to stop. i want to be able to stop a certian PID but apprntly these things change...
23:07<niwt>pkill can kill by name
23:08<stroyan>killing by name is scary....
23:08<niwt>can be, yeah
23:08<bluntman225>it is
23:09<bluntman225>how can i tell if my script is running as a use insted of root
23:09|-|mehul [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
23:09<tcsetattr>that's one of the reasons Debian has that big start-stop-daemon with all its --superlong options... it can track the PID for you
23:09<tcsetattr>ps aux, look in the USER column

23:28<pjustice>lots of sites not carrying e.g. s390, which is the one that triggered the question; one understands the choice made by each site, but surely there's a master?
23:28<tcsetattr>looks like they changed things. I was talking about which used to be listed in both and
23:28<stroyan>gustavo: The resolution defect is written up as It is still open.
23:28<tcsetattr>of course there's but I don't think they want people using it who aren't running mirrors.
23:29<stroyan>gustavo: There is a proposed fix there as a source patch. It seems too specific to particular display hardware. I haven't tried it on my displays yet.
23:30<pjustice>yeah, no downloads from ftp-master
23:31<pjustice>any idea who to ask about
23:33<bluntman225>using a 350 mhz Pentium II, would a i386 kernel be better than a 686?

23:46<tcsetattr>the basic gcc packages in debian don't do cross-compiling, but there is a dpkg-cross... maybe that would help. if not, the general procedure for building a gcc cross-compiler is there in the gcc docs
