00:50<john>i have the patch.c file, the card is sigmatel
00:52<Supaplex>unified diffs are the way to go
00:53<john>yes i have a file its called alsa-stac.diff
00:53|-|filemover [] has joined #debian
00:53<john>i dont know what to do with it
00:54<dpkg>i heard patch is just a tool to handle text file mutations according to a common format known as 'diff'. For kernel patching use (depending on type of patch): 'patch -p1 < patch.diff' or 'zcat patch.gz | patch -p1' or 'bzcat patch.bz2 | patch -p1'
00:54<john>that sounds almost too easy
00:54<john>ill give it a try

01:01<filemover>its not vista
01:01<filemover>it only looks like the vita icons
01:01<john>i liked the emerald-vista themes

01:01<filemover>are they in the repositorys
01:02<john>currently use the OSX clone

03:19<peej>I have a 32 GB drive and I want to copy that system over to a new 80 GB drive so that I can just slap in the new drive in the old box. I've mkfs.ext3 the new drive and made it bootable and copied a tarball over to the new drive. And unpacked it in a chroot system so that the unpacked stuff should be laid out in the new drive just like in the old drive. booting from the new drive on another machine (ie not the machine that has the 32GB drive) fails (OS not found

04:15<sheldonh>vapor210: sure. there's always the performance of your specific application on the os. typically, the performance question is "does this os give me enough" rather than "does this os give me the most". then there's the release cycle (do you require a long-lived stable base or the latest features?). specific hardware support is often a requirement. lead time and application time for security updates. support (community and/or commercial), particularly

08:55<padski>the bot here has this to say ...
08:55<dpkg>well, cdrom is To mount a cdrom do mount /dev/cdrom /cdrom, or "see cd-rom", or 'grep hd /var/log/dmesg' 'ln -s /dev/hd{a,b,c,d} /dev/cdrom', or created with, or are managed with apt-cdrom.

09:40<stark>hm :(
09:40<lupine>stark: you can molest dpkg in private
09:40<dpkg>it has been said that blootbot is a severely mutiliated infobot (right now, the code doesn't even look like infobot any more), by xk. Homepage at Archive is at See blootbot debs now in debian, or if you didn't already know this you probably don't want to run a blootbot unless you're very good with perl, or, or the latest svn has pgsql support.
09:40<dlx>i want to resize the /var filesystem with lvm but i can't unmount it because it's in use, how do i do that then?
09:40<lupine>dlx: boot from a live cd, make the required changes, boot back into main system
09:40|-|tweakt [] has joined #debian
09:40<lupine>or unmount /var, make the changes, remount. But that would probably break things.
09:40<dlx>i see...thx
09:40<chantanito>lupine: so what do you recommed me?
09:41<dlx>well i can't unmount, the device is busy...

13:03<cahoot>faust, wrong dpi?
13:03<kdean06>I did a dist-upgrade yesterday morning and it "broke" my fonts, namely they're much larger now that they were yesterday, and they're ugly. It seems as if every application other than Iceweasel was affected. Is there any known cause for this, and a fix other than manually re-adjusting all of my fonts?
13:03<hachi>hi, what's the necessary steps to get debian (testing/unstable) to detect wire plug/unplug events on my gigE network port on my laptop?
13:03<faust>cahoot: might be - any idea how to change that?
13:03<faust>cahoot: so I guess it's an X problem, not gnome?

13:04<cahoot>faust, one way is the font tool in gnome

13:04<cahoot>faust, xdpyinfo can tell you what dpi is set to
13:05<blarson>hachi: hotplug fires when the device is plugged, not the wire. It works fine on my cardbus ethernet card.
13:05<hachi>yeah, I don't need that
13:05<hachi>I want to know what package does the wire plug detection
13:05<faust>cahoot: You mean this: resolution: 125x125 dots per inch?
13:05<blarson>hachi: There are a couple, but I don't use any myself.
13:06<faust>cahoot: strange, Xorg.0.log reports intel(0): DPI set to (75, 75)

15:07<isuckatlinux>i built it 3 times already
15:08<Requiem>or else figure out what happened to sda1
15:08<lupine_85>actually, building kernels is the hardest thing to do
15:08<isuckatlinux>i guess i will decompress both initrd and see the difference
15:08<lupine_85> do you have udev installed?
15:08<Requiem>kernels are easy, hard is LFS
15:08<isuckatlinux>why 2.6.18 works and fails 2.6.22 with the same config
15:08<lupine_85> a lot changes between kernels
15:09<isuckatlinux>udev is there
15:09<lupine_85>you could always just install the kernel from unstable, which is a .22
15:09<isuckatlinux>yeah but since im kind of a newbie everyone tells me not to do it
15:09<Requiem>Installing from unstable is pretty easy
15:10<lupine_85>Just set unstable's pin priority < 600 and you're away
15:10<chealer>isuckatlinux: please watch your language
15:10<dpkg>If you are running stable, don't pin; use a backport. Ask me about <backports> or <simple sid backport>. If you're using testing, man apt_preferences or see

18:17<dpkg>If you are running stable, don't pin; use a backport. Ask me about <backports> or <simple sid backport>. If you're using testing, man apt_preferences or see
18:17<lupine_85>I have stable, testing, unstable and experimental repos in my sources.list
18:17<padski>hmm ...
18:18<padski>its good advice on how to start
18:18<jclinton>i wouldn't use apt-get to actually install a package from another distro
18:18<padski>how do you rewrite this stuff ? look at this one ...
18:18<dpkg>extra, extra, read all about it, cdrom is To mount a cdrom do mount /dev/cdrom /cdrom, or "see cd-rom", or 'grep hd /var/log/dmesg' 'ln -s /dev/hd{a,b,c,d} /dev/cdrom', or created with, or are managed with apt-cdrom.
18:19<isuckatlinux>ok, thanks guys
18:19<themill>padski: what do you want it to say>
18:19<jclinton>you can use aptitude to interactive tag a kernel from a new release and resolved dependencies
18:20<padski>themill: for one thing, mount onto /media/cdrom (or whatever)
18:20<jclinton>isuckatlinux: linux-image-2.6.22 is available through backports
18:20<themill>only for amd64
18:20<padski>themill: however much I may hate our standards, I hate not having them even more so
18:21<jclinton>isuckatlinux: use that instead of pinning if you're on amd64

18:26<lupine_85>lenny doesn't have it
18:26<lupine_85>at least, not my lenny
18:27<themill>padski: how's this; To mount a cdrom from console, do mount /media/cdrom; To automount under gnome, install gnome-volume-manager or under kde, install pmount. Tell apt about your CD sources using apt-cdrom.
18:28<padski>themill: that is an excellent summary of the best info we found today. I'm not an expert and I couldn't promise that is perfect, but to me it seems like an improvement (in at least some ways) on what was there. give me a second to review the deletions ...

18:36<themill>no.... my kde automounts cds with pmount and not h-d-m

18:40<apeitheo>padski: well I guess right now lol, apt-get install nvidia-glx says the package isn't ther
18:41<padski>apeitheo: testing has whatever is fit to pass into it from unstable. there are gaps
18:41<apeitheo>padski: so running testing on a desktop probably isn't the best idea?
18:41<apeitheo>padski: or should I just backport things from sid?
18:42<apeitheo>I would run stable, but the software's a little too old.
18:42<gass>hello there
18:42<lupine_85> nvidia-glx isn't compatible with the current testing kernel
18:42<lupine_85>(along with nvidia-kernel)
18:42<gass>the comedi modules are not compiled?
18:42<lupine_85>hence why it's not in there
18:42<themill>dpkg: cdrom =~ s/pmount/kdebase-kio-plugins/
18:42<dpkg>OK, themill
18:42<apeitheo>lupine_85: so basically the only way to get nvidia's drivers working is to run stable?
18:42<lupine_85>nah, grab the kernel from unstable

22:31<kerneld>You cal look at the timestamps in /var/cache/apt/archives/
22:32<kerneld>and see what you have downloaded
22:32<frand>probably i wanted to get some package that wasn't available and unwisely added unstable to my sources.list

22:32<kerneld>Since you still have ancient libc6 not much new could have made it to installed
22:32<kerneld>... but if it already unpacked...
22:33|-|chuy_max [] has joined #debian
22:33<kerneld>You could try: apt-get install libc6 dpkg apt
22:33<kerneld>and go from there
22:34<Supaplex>awwweeeee *bliss* elinks+scroll wheel mouse
22:34<frand>i've taken the unstable references out of sources.list, and apt-get updated... now trying your suggestion, it seems promising
22:34<chuy_max>is it possible to modify serial port configuration, like parity, baud rate, handshaking, etc?

22:35<kerneld>frand: If I have a stable system and want some package that isn't in stable - my first route is to putt an unstable deb-src line in and backport the package I want if possible
22:35<kerneld>Some have lots of dependecies that need to backport thaough and that gets to be a chore
22:36<frand>that makes great sense -- thanks
22:36<Supaplex>backports > simple sid backport > pinning > hold > cut-over to testing/sid
22:36<nexx>hey guys, i've got a quick question, i was in here last week looking for help on my X server config, i ended up installing some nvidia files and during one of the reconfigurings we used a -twinview setting, basicaly i have two different monitors of different sizes and i dont have them lined up properly for the desktop to span both monitors, i think thats what the twin view is for
22:36<nexx>i was wondering if there was some information on some different configuring options

22:39<dpkg>To use an NVIDIA graphics card with Debian, see If you've done it before, ask me about <nvidia one-liner> for a reminder.
22:39<frand>i just tried apt-get update base-files for fun, and now it contains 4.0. this is looking very good
22:40<frand>kerneld, thanks very much. i'm at the "packages cannot be authenticated" hurdle, very good sign.
