00:34<jm_>!drxx anibal_
00:34<dpkg>anibal_: To reconfigure your X server, run dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg as root. If you're not using Xorg (sarge or earlier), dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86, and ask me about xmd5sum if you've changed XF86Config-4 yourself.

01:04<jm_>keyring for what?
01:05<eins7ein>the keyring manager in debian
01:05<jm_>you mean to verify package signatures?
01:05<eins7ein>I don't know it's just called the keyring manager
01:06|-|guantao [~guantao@] has quit []
01:06<eins7ein>It comes up every time I connect to my wireless through WPA
01:06<jm_>ahh I see, sorry I have no clue about that
01:06|-|infestator [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
01:06<eins7ein>I kinda broke the don't root while drunk rule the other night
01:07<eins7ein>apparantly I changed the password by accident
01:07<eins7ein>yeah it kinda sucks
01:07|-|infestator [] has joined #debian
01:07<koollman>well ... change it again
01:07<eins7ein>I don't know what the current password is
01:08<eins7ein>or how to change it for that matter
01:08<ameyer>you could probably use a live cd and chroot in
01:08<koollman>or just add an argument on the bootloader line after reboot
01:08<jm_>that won't help at all
01:09<koollman>something like 'init=/bin/bash'
01:09<eins7ein>the chroot idea is what was suggested on a forum
01:09<koollman>after that, you just use 'passwd'
01:09<eins7ein>problem is I don't know where the password is stored
01:09<eins7ein>for the keyring
01:09<jm_>eins7ein: wait, you don't know root password or something entirely keyring manager related?
01:09<jm_>right, that's different thing
01:10<eins7ein>I know my root password but not the keyring manager password
01:10<jm_>strace might help
01:10<jm_>but if it's done sanely it won't help you
01:10<eins7ein>I'm confused

01:25|-|freealan [] has quit [Quit: leaving]
01:25<eins7ein>my sound doesn't work after instlling the latest ver of alsa
01:25<eins7ein>do you use etch or lenny
01:25<jm_>do you see anything in /proc/asound/cards?
01:25<jm_>Etch here, but I use custom kernel
01:26<eins7ein>I'm trying to find out if I should switch over to lenny
01:26<eins7ein>since i'm a bit of a noob I just wondered if it would cause me more problems than I already have
01:26|-|serge [~serge@] has joined #debian
01:27<jm_>sometimes it does (depending on when you upgrade etc.)

01:30|-|cahoot [~radix@] has joined #debian
01:31<eins7ein>I was thinking about doing it now
01:32<eins7ein>some guys in here had me talked into it last night but talked me out of it half way through the dl
01:32|-|asma [~asma@] has joined #debian
01:33<Vakio>eins7ein: I would've talked you out of it before you started, but I was afk getting some food :)
01:34<eins7ein>good news is I ended up not doing it
01:34<eins7ein>still have no sound but no biggie for now
01:34<jm_>did you verify that file?
01:34<eins7ein>which file
01:35<jm_>08:25:44 <jm_> do you see anything in /proc/asound/cards?
01:35<jm_>so what is in it? no pasting here
01:35<eins7ein>what should I do instead of pasting
01:35<dpkg>Please do not paste anything at all to this channel. Instead, use: or or for pics.
01:36<eins7ein>it says HD-Intel pretty much
01:36<eins7ein>irq 58
01:36<jm_>so driver is loaded - what does aplay say?
01:36<Vakio>eins7ein: the problem is actually a too old version of the kernel. You need 2.6.20 or later.
01:37<eins7ein>how do I do that
01:37<jm_>ahh OK, so people know about your problem already
01:37<eins7ein><- noob
01:37<eins7ein>yep been talking about it in here for 2 days
01:37<eins7ein>how do I upgrade my kernel
01:37<Vakio>eins7ein: some people using the same card told it here last night.
01:38<dpkg>backports is, like, a package from a newer Debian branch, compiled from source for an older branch to avoid dependency and ABI complications. or or or ask me about <simple sid backport>
01:38<Vakio>eins7ein: I wish I could've told you earlier, but I didn't know :)
01:38<eins7ein>told me what
01:38<Vakio>eins7ein: that the problem was the kernel, not alsa-base.
01:39|-|rmayorga [~rmayorga@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]

04:12<stonehold>i know. like i said, debian 3.1 recognises it fine.

04:15<josey_bosey>jm_: Yes but I would prefer to use the native wide screen resolution of 1680x1050
04:15<jm_>hard to say without details
04:16<jm_>josey_bosey: yeah I understand that, however I am not sure that's a standard VESA resolution so I am not sure if it will work, it might

09:41<manou>how can i do this please ?
09:41<cahoot>TIBSS01, does the camera show up in dmesg?

09:42<toupeira>what's the easiest way to setup a mail relay which does recipient address verification (both for the domain and local port) using callouts to the main mailserver?

09:50<zizban>no :(
09:50|-|tombar__ [] has joined #debian
09:50<Eulex>zizban, newer versions of debian have the xlibs dev stuff split into several packages.
09:50<Eulex>zizban, then don't try to install that one.
09:50<zizban>ya its getting this old package to see those thats the challenge
09:50<zizban>curese old unmaintained windowmanagers ;)
09:51<Eulex>zizban, this old package? what are you trying to install?
09:51<Eulex>zizban, and how are you trying to install it?
09:51<Eulex>!tell TIBSS01 about pastebin
09:51<zizban>dpkg -i epiwn.deb
09:51[~]dpkg installs epiwn.deb into zizban's head with a bone saw and a few screws
09:52<Eulex>zizban, don't use that package if you can avoid it; install, build it manually. or rebuild the package yourself.
09:52<zizban>ya I was afraid of that
09:52<zizban>but if I must
09:52<cahoot_>TIBSS01, run lsusb and do a google search using the id # (like 046d:c510)

09:54<zizban>too bad
09:54<zizban>I like that WM
09:54<TIBSS01>do i have to run a usb scan for it tobe detected

09:55|-|rmayorga [~rmayorga@] has joined #debian
09:55<lupine_85>TIBSS01: should be automagically detected

09:56<TIBSS01>how do i do that
09:56<lupine_85>dmesg will keep you updated
09:56<Eulex>man modprobe
09:56<lupine_85>modprobe <module>
09:56<TIBSS01>so it should be
09:56<TIBSS01>erm /usr/video0
09:56<TIBSS01>aint it
09:56<TIBSS01>or /dev/video0
09:56<zizban>hmmm FreeBSD has it...I wonder how they got it working? hmmmm

09:56|-|aka [] has joined #debian
09:56|-|tombar_ [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
09:57<lupine_85>you might need to create the device node manually - google has the details
09:57<TIBSS01>manso if i modeprobe /dev/video0
09:57<lupine_85>a device node is not a module
09:57<Eulex>zizban, etch has it too, but the package was *split* from the monolithic xlibs to several packages.
09:57|-|foolano [] has joined #debian
09:57|-|twb [] has left #debian [rcirc on GNU Emacs 22.1.1]
09:58<Eulex>zizban, so yes, etch has xlibs, but it is in several packages.
09:58<zizban>and there aint no way old epiwm will see those
09:58<zizban>I'll have to work on it
09:58<Eulex>zizban, the problem isn't epiwm.
09:58<zizban>whats the problem?
09:58|-|juliank [] has joined #debian
09:58<Eulex>zizban, the problem is that package you've got there. it depends on the xlibs package, which doesn't exist in etch.
09:58[~]zizban isn't the brightest bulb in the box, somtimes
09:59<Eulex>it would have to be changed to depend on the right packages (the ones with the functionality of xlibs that it needs)
09:59|-|caat [] has joined #debian
09:59|-|buzztracker [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
10:00|-|buzztracker [] has joined #debian
10:00<zizban>so the deb would have to be rebuilt
10:00<zizban>I only code some perl
10:00<Eulex>zizban, yes
10:00<zizban>this ought be fun ;)
10:00<zizban>I better get RTFMing
10:01<Eulex>zizban, in any case, epiwm itself might work correctly (no guarantee when installing something made for sarge on etch) if you just can convince the package that you've got what you need already installed. that's why I suggested equivs. with it, you van convince it that you've got the xlibs package installed.
10:01<lupine_85>dpkg-buildpackage is your friend
10:01<lupine_85>or apt-get -b source
10:01<zizban>I'll try those
10:01<Eulex>lupine_85, if he has the package source, yes
10:01<lupine_85>heh, true
10:01<lupine_85>less trivial if you don't have the source
10:02<lupine_85>indeed, you could say that it's impossible if you don't have the source
10:02<zizban>Oh the source is available as a tarball
10:02<cahoot_>TIBSS01, you might use module-assitant to build the spcaxx module - it *might* work with that camera - not documented as supported though
10:02<Eulex>well, he could create his own package, then use dpkg-buildpackage. and put it in his own apt repo. then he could do apt-get -b source ;)

15:07<df1amb>Hi, I'm looking for a software to put a program to a rom via rs232 interface. The rom is a 89lpc936. Any recommends ?
15:07<Cyllene>bzed: Random hard reboots.
15:07<Cyllene>bzed: I swear, the box just randomly goes offline and there is nothing in any of the logs to help me at all.
15:07<Cyllene>That's why I think it might be hardware.

18:08|-|simonrvn [~simon@] has quit [Read error: Operation timed out]
18:08<Supaplex>v4mpire: so you've exausted space on a mount point, right?
18:08<kop>Supaplex: I've got a lenny debian-live cd booted now, so the nic's working temporarly.
18:08<chealer>v4mpire: which space problem?
18:09<Supaplex>v4mpire: let's see df -h on
18:09<kop>v4mpire: I don't suppose you're using lvm?
18:09<v4mpire>not as far as i know
18:09<Supaplex>lvm would make it sooooo much eaiser. :)
18:09[~]Supaplex uses lvm where possible
18:10<v4mpire>would also make it easier if debian auto partitioner didn't make silly small mount points
18:10|-|antony_ [] has joined #debian
18:11<Supaplex>you can adjust those on install. how is it suppose to know what you're really going to do with it?
18:11<kop>v4mpire: While you're using, it'd also be good to see "sfdisk -l /dev/foo" for all your devices to see what space you've got unused -- if you've got any at all.
18:12<Supaplex>we're open to insightful suggestions, but "it's so broken" comments are moot at best in solving the issue (if it's a real issue)
18:12<v4mpire>sfdisk: cannot open /dev/foo for reading
18:12<kop>Supaplex: (I wonder why the d-i does not do lvm by default?)
18:13<RatRod666>cd /
18:13<kop>v4mpire: You need to substutite whatever disks you've got for "foo", like hda.
18:13<RatRod666>then du -h
18:13<v4mpire>oh lol
18:13<kop>RatRod666: df is mucho faster than du.
18:14<RatRod666>well prolly so
18:14<v4mpire>df -h shows what space i have
18:14<Supaplex>kop: it's a little more complicated. improper use is more likely to break booting, filesystem access, etc
18:16<kop>v4mpire: You've filled /var. The easy solution is to do "aptitude clean" to remove your cache of installed debian packages. But then you might think of the longer term and see about migrating to lvm.

18:19<antony_>why firefox have strange name ?
18:19<Viper550>antony_: it's a special build of Firefox that Debian has to use due to copyright restrictions on Firefox artwork
18:20<valdyn>antony_: debian cannot use the branding 'firefox' for license reasons
18:20<antony_>Viper550 , understand , but why all the other dists can ?
18:20<seanius>dpkg: tell antony_ about why iceweasel
18:20<Viper550>The Firefox logos are registered under a license that Debian declares "un-free", so they made IceWeasel to replace it. It's also got some extra security features that I find nifty
18:21<v4mpire>epiphany == firefox ?
18:21<v4mpire>oh iceweasel
18:21<seanius>basically mozilla corp got their heads up their asses

18:22|-|bighornram [~jeff@] has joined #debian
18:23<antony_>how i can view my ntfs drivers ?
18:23<valdyn>antony_: wants the right to evaluate each patch that distributors apply to firefox. Debians policy does not allow that.
18:23<kop>v4mpire: I'm sorry, I can't hang out here now and talk you through this. However, the approach I'd take would be to make a large file with 'cat /dev/zero | head -n lots-o-megabytes > /usr/local/foo" Then put a filesystem into the file and mount it with the loopback device (after booting in single user mode) then tar /var into the mounted file, umount /var and your file, remount the file (using loopback) again as /var. Then you can erase /var/ and start over
18:23<v4mpire>makes sense
18:23<seanius>antony_: ^^^ and ubuntu decided that this was okay
18:23<valdyn>antony_: different distros do not have strict policy in the debian sense
18:23<bighornram>how do you configure firehol for avahi / lenny?
18:24<valdyn>antony_: i.e. debian needs the right to apply security fixes as it sees fit, not as sees fit
18:24<v4mpire>kop no idea how to do that but will get as lil more info somewhere
18:24|-|emonge [~emonge@] has joined #debian
18:24<seanius>v4mpire: what exactly was your problem?
18:25<dpkg>somebody said iceweasel was the name of a DFSG-free fork of Firefox, which replaces Firefox in Debian starting from Etch. It is currently different from the browser with the same name from GNU ( although it is possible that the two projects will join forces in the future. To learn about the reasons for the fork, ask me about <why iceweasel>.
18:25<v4mpire>i filled /var

18:25<antony_>ok i understand that sound that debian is "more free" than ubuntu and that is good
18:26<valdyn>antony_: its not about 'more free'
18:26<Viper550>but Iceweasel can support all firefox themes/extensions, and you could just edit the menus to make it look like Firefox, and you could use this titlebar name changer to change the titlebar name to Firefox
18:26|-|dani__ [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
18:26<valdyn>antony_: its about debian applying patches according to its policy, it CANNOT ask third party for permission to apply patches
18:27<valdyn>antony_: wants the preserve the right to control any patches applied to firefox with firefox branding
18:27<Viper550>though Iceweasel is cute though :)
18:28<valdyn>antony_: so debian cannot distribute firefox, NOT even in non-free
18:28<Supaplex>oh look, "why iceweasel" - why not msg dpkg and find out.
18:29<seanius>v4mpire: can you paste "sudo du -sk /var/* | sort -n" and "sudo du -sk /var/*/* | sort -n" ?
18:30<antony_>valdyn , by what you say mozilla developers ( or the people who decide what to do ) are no so smart . . .
18:30<valdyn>antony_: nah
18:30<valdyn>antony_: they protect their branding
18:30<kop>antony_: It might well be a legal question.
18:30<seanius>antony_: that's sort of orthogonal to the issue
18:30|-|EmleyMoor [] has quit [Quit: leaving]
18:31<valdyn>antony_: they are 'scared' of modifactations that could sacrifice quality
18:31<valdyn>antony_: which seems silly when looking at what debian does.
18:31<antony_>but firefox is oss isnt it ?
18:31<valdyn>antony_: sure, but the BRAND is not
18:32<valdyn>antony_: firefox the code is free, the picture and the brand and the name is not.
18:32<bighornram>How do I disable avahi in lenny?
18:32<seanius>v4mpire: okay, looks like you have a runaway process filling up /var via those logfiles

18:34<dpkg>extra, extra, read all about it, ntfs-3g is a NTFS driver with write support. Available in lenny but not for etch except as a backport.
18:34<kop>antony_: OT: There's centos if you want RH and don't want to pay.
18:34<valdyn>antony_: or just mount -t ntfs /dev/whatever /path/to/mountpoint ( for readonly access )
18:35<seanius>v4mpire: try "sudo lsof | grep"
18:35<seanius>hopefully lsof is installed :)

18:36<v4mpire>by the looks of it its the gnu log files

18:38<v4mpire>no its my home personal system
18:38<seanius>kill 14256
18:38<v4mpire>rm then ?
18:38<seanius>you might want to tail the logfile to see what's in the logs to make sure you weren't hacked
18:39<kop>If I'm running, for example, etch, and want to install something from, say, lenny, what's the right way to juggle apt's sources.list? I figure to keep a separate file, say sources.list.lenny, that also has lenny sources and then use something like aptitude -o Dir::Etc::sourcelist=/etc/apt/sources.list.lenny install foo. Is that the "right way", or if not then what is when you don't want to use Or will apt look at my /etc/debian_version and not
18:39<seanius>feel free to paste for a second opinion
18:39<v4mpire>only installed gnu a lil while ago and it didn't work properly so remove it best i could xD
18:39<v4mpire>seanius, how would i tail ?
18:39<antony_>valdyn , i have mounted wrong how i can unmount ?
18:39<petemc>kop: look into backports
18:40<seanius>v4mpire: tail is the name of a command

21:18<miksuh>try to select hibernate from powermanagers menu
21:18<manphiz>aArchnix, which video driver are you using?

21:19<aArchnix>sorry, I'm mistaken, i810 is in my xorg. Strange.

21:20<aArchnix>Because the resolution was correct I didn't think to look there.

21:25<aArchnix>Hi again... ok, changed video driver to intel and tried suspend. Whereas before it would just lock screen, this time it disconnected me from the network and then popped up a little box saying "sorry buddy, no can do". Or something like that. Hibernate works a treat, even brings my wireless and audio back up without a problem. It's not much faster than a reboot, but at least the thing can turn itself off now and save the state without m
21:26<aArchnix>Still, suspend would be nice.

22:10<dendrite>wmachalica: One technique, that I'm not pushing, but just mentioning, is the idea of using the next release to get sources from, then build in your own versions toolchain.

22:11<dendrite>... Is that bad? =9-o

22:13<wmachalica>I did some printfs and the encrypted password comes back as "x"
22:13<dendrite>wmachalica: strace it? Not quite sure how I'd tackle that, though.
22:14<wmachalica>yeah, I was hoping it would be simple :)
22:14<dendrite>The 'x' looks suspiciously like it comes from the /etc/passwd file...
22:15<wmachalica>hmm, i'm kinda over my head. i don't normally muck around with that stuff
22:16<dendrite>wmachalica: Well, I remember the conversion to shadow was not without its pains and tribulations.
22:16<dendrite>Not as bad as libc6 though. :-)
22:16<wmachalica>i was just hoping I could get the source for the original binary to eliminate any incompatibilities.
