06:11<gsimmons>sKAApGIF: For 4.0 ("Etch") on the i386 architecture, the "bare minimum" memory requirement is 32MB (see sections 2.5 and 3.4).
06:12<lupine_85>meh, you can fit into less than that
06:12<lupine_85>well, if you try really hard :)
06:13|-|flypiper [] has joined #debian
06:13<gsimmons>Sure, but 32MB is necessary to appease d-i. :)
06:13<lupine_85>for absolute minimalism, you're best using a mu-c-libc + busybox linux, though. AspisOS is good

06:14|-|dudester [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
06:15<sKAApGIF>so if I mount a swap drive it shouldn't be a problem?
06:15<lupine_85>sKAApGIF: can get get the hard drive out of the PC?
06:15<lupine_85>erm, "can you", rather
06:15<lupine_85>oh, wait. you have 32MB, never mind
06:16<gsimmons>sKAApGIF: I'm using a Stylistic 1200 (P120, 32MB) as an access point over here. Your PC's specifications should meet the installer's requirement in low-memory mode. Unless you're doing something unusual, I doubt you'll need external swap.
06:16<lupine_85>just install it as usual, might as well give it some swap but it'll probably never touch it as a wireless access point
06:16<lupine_85>personally, I'd spend some money now to get something designed for the job, and avoid the extortionate amount of electricity that thing is going to eat
06:17<sKAApGIF>installer will load low memory mode automatically?
06:17<gsimmons>sKAApGIF: d-i will detect the amount present and switch to this mode. You can force it if necessary, but it won't be necessary on most systems.
06:17<fxiny>that's right : i run a PII . wasting electrobills is a pita
06:17<lupine_85>you can get some very nice solid-state setups for < £120

08:34<lupine_85>epp, freudian slip of the fingers there
08:34<helix84>i'm looking at . i think the command in section "Upgrade of all the files" should be upgrade instead of update.

11:27<dsl_>not sure all i know is im running dsl right now and the internet pop ups are faster then a blink of an eye but thats the only thing dsl is good for its too complicated for me to use. and i have been up for 19 hrs trying to get help from their channel which blows might i add. so i am going to try to find a way to make another os as fast for the internet
11:29<dsl_>but then again i have no clue on what i am doing maybe i should just get debian how fast does ur internet pages pop up?? i have cable and with dream linux it took about 50 seconds before a page would show and with dsl it takes about 1-2 seconds
11:30<dsl_>i dont know why this is maybe someone would be polite enough to explain this to me? oh thank you for the postshelix and stroyan
11:31|-|rhotland [] has joined #debian
11:31<stroyan>dsl_: several linux distributions enable the newer ipv6 protocol. Several routers and cable modems choke on the DNS requests made using ipv6. Disabling ipv6 is a workaround for those devices.
11:32<lupine_85>the routers don't choke on them, but firefox does
11:34<dsl_>okay so its like me doing long hand in math = ipv6 instead of using a calculator = ipv4 but this is rediculous why would you enable ipv6 if its only going to slow ur users computer pages?
11:34<stroyan>lupine_85: Interesting. So only firefox is tripping over the ipv6 issue? Then could entirely fix the problem with a firefox setting.
11:35<lupine_85>dsl_: because ipv6 is entering common usage
11:35<dsl_>thats lame
11:36<dsl_>who is behind ipv6? microcrap?
11:36<lupine_85>are you serious?
11:36<lupine_85>It's I P V 6

11:49<pmitros>I'm running Debian Stable. I have a custom kernel. At some point, I have no idea when, sound broke. It works in mplayer, xmms, mpg123, and a few others, but not in ogg123, uqm, and a few others. uqm dies with: "ALSA lib confmisc.c:670:(snd_func_card_driver) cannot find card '0'" I'm using ALSA for sound in the kernel. I have OSS emulation and support for old ALSA API enabled in my kernel.
11:49<dsl_>all i did was make little computer games on the thing
11:50<dsl_>and your question would be how can someone help me please fix this

11:51<pmitros>Any clues?
11:51<dsl_>nope dont ask me im just a messenger
11:52|-|f11sh [] has joined #debian
11:52<lupine_85>pmitros: seems likely that the card is no longer called '0'
11:52<lupine_85>it could be called 'default' or hw:(something) or all sorts of things
11:52<dsl_>did you try to reinstall the ogg123 uqm and the few others maybe you did a upgrade or something and kicked em out of wak
11:53<lupine_85>if it's a custom kernel, a reinstall is unlikely to help
11:53<pmitros>lupine: I think that's just trying to grab the first sound card. I don't specify that to any applications.
11:53<dsl_>well i tried
11:53<pmitros>Everything is from Debian/stable except the kernel.
11:54<lupine_85>pmitros: alsa calls it's devices all sorts of things, including '0'. maybe that's changed a bit with the later kernel
11:54<lupine_85>different apps almost certainly use different default device names/identifiers, hence the variability in behaviour you're seeing
11:54<dsl_>im going to get debian what is the smallest lightest distro debian has preferably running xfce, fluxbox or well any light wm instead of the kde gnome.
11:55<pmitros>Hmm... Now that I'm looking at it, alsamixer also doesn't work.
11:55<pmitros>"alsamixer: function snd_ctl_open failed for default: No such device"
11:55<lupine_85>dsl_: the lightest debian you can get is achieved by running "debootstrap <distro>"
11:55<lupine_85>120MB or so
11:55<lupine_85>pmitros: what does aplay -l list (you might need to install it)
11:55<pmitros>lupine: Hmm... That's possible. I have no clue how I'd fix that.
11:56<pmitros>aplay: device_list:222: no soundcards found...
11:56<pmitros>That's weird. I don't even have OSS compiled in, except for emulation.
11:56<lupine_85>hmm. So how on earth are those other programs outputting sound?

11:57<lupine_85>debootstrap can pull equally well from any repository, including CD
11:57<pmitros>It's all compiled in. No modules. /proc/asound/cards does list my sound card, though.

11:58<lupine_85>it's great fun to do; the debian install manual details the process
11:58<pmitros>My guess is that ALSA changed its API in some way at some point, and maybe my kernel and ALSA libs are out of sync.

The truly enlightened user, however, will install ntp and adjtimex to have their clock set automatically on reboot and slewed to match time servers. You may also need to run tzconfig (sarge, etch), dpkg-reconfigure tzdata (lenny, sid), and make sure you have the right UTC setting in /etc/default/rcS first.

19:36<ricky>Ah, or that.
19:37<gravity>automatix isn't ubuntu-only
19:37<ricky>raven_claw_4004: (I'd rather discuss this in channel): regardless of whether the process is still running, you should have a .swp file that will allow you to get your changes back.

19:38<gravity>True enough
19:38<lupine_85>even if they do have a debian-specific module, I'd trust it about as much as an M-class planet full of cardassians
19:40<piper>i thought automatix was for windows :)
19:40<elvis2>i only want it to test the ntfs support

19:44<bloodskin>how would i open a folder in grub as root while im signed in as a normal user
19:44<lupine_85>piper: you realise that the UUIDs you put into /etc/fstab just reference the symlinks in /dev/disk, which in turn point to standard device files?

19:46<lupine_85>elvis2: I assume you either don't have the ntfs/fuse module loaded, or you do but need to pass it some option to make it rw
19:46<lupine_85>either way, have you tried using ntfs-config - NTFS Config?

20:54<rjbase89>I am looking for info for installing an Intel wireless Pro 3495
20:54<dli>chealer, it's in stable kernel, so, that part has to be in GPL-v2
20:54<dpkg>If you're running a recent version of Debian (etch or greater), do the following: add contrib and non-free entries in your sources.list and aptitude update; aptitude install ipw3945-modules-2.6-686 firmware-ipw3945 ipw3945d; If you are not using the 686 kernel, replace the 686 with the kernel variant you are using (486)

20:57<seeS>iwlwifi may not work with your chip
20:57<seeS>it didnt with mine
20:57<micah>dli: i see some people using a zd1211 on a hawking hwu54G usb dongle, but the reviews on are terrible

21:05<seeS>the ipwwhateverd loads it
21:05<seeS>i think

21:06<seeS>hmm, whats the guest? i think it means no password
21:06<chealer>micah: I never used a card that requires firmware. something like that, or at boot. I wouldn't worry, the HOWTO-s should cover what you need to know.

21:35<chant>debian is supposed to be trustworthy.
21:35<chant>let me put it this way: if debian automatically loaded a DDs page on startup with google ads, and those paid the developer directly, there'd be fights ala dunctank
21:35<chant>so whats the diff if its a DD vs. if its the bbc and mozilla website?
21:35<chant>that's potentially valuable information.
21:36<seeS>no idea, it doesnt do it to me
21:36<chant>lets put it this way
21:36<chant>imagine you're on a cell modem and paying per kb
21:36<chant>why pay for connections you don't want?

23:42<litage|w>on a new Etch installation, /var/log/boot is not being written to. i've discovered that /etc/init.d/bootlogd is being called with the "stop" arg when the machine boots, despite the init-script having these startup links. any ideas why "stop" is being passed?:

23:49<litage|w>tcsetattr: yup. ``grep ENABLE /etc/default/bootlogd'' outputs this: BOOTLOGD_ENABLE=Yes
23:50<litage|w>i added this to the beginning of /etc/init.d/bootlogd : echo "run as: $0 $@" >>/bootlogd.log which resulted in this output: run as: /etc/init.d/bootlogd stop
