00:49<klys>is there any reason firefox should have a funky line at the top with BBBBB...etc.?
00:49<dpkg>extra, extra, read all about it, iceweasel is 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>.

01:31<[STD]Ein>so here's a speil and a half
01:31<[STD]Ein>I've managed to delete the initrd.img for a kernel that I was installing (from binary debian packages) and now I can't figure out how to reinstall the kernel properly. I've tried removing all the relavant bits I could find (image and modules) via apt-get, but on install it reports the initrd for the kernel is missing and fails to complete the install. Rebuilding the initrd with mkinitramfs causes the install to throw an initrd has
01:32<chealer>[STD]Ein: your message was truncated at "an initrd has"
01:34<ameyer>hmm, dpkg -i /path/to/kernel/package.deb?
01:34<ameyer>(although that might just fail as miserably
01:35<ameyer>also dpkg-reconfigure (whatever kernel you fubar'd)
01:36<[STD]Ein>worth trying :)

01:41<yujin>what is most popular webpage explorer in linux?
01:42<chealer>yujin: the most popular browser on Linux is Firefox.

01:45<yujin>chealer.sorry.may i?
01:45<madmix>come posso configurare nokia d211?
01:45<[STD]Ein>well, dpkg-reconfigure runs through the post-install again, (update-initramfs), but the package system is still out of wack, won't reinstall properly. (using apt-get remove, apt-get install)
01:45<chealer>yujin: no, unless you have a good reason.
01:45<chealer>!tell madmix about it
01:46<madmix>d211 is a whi-fi net adapter via pcmci of nokia
01:47<yujin>chealer, ok. Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv: Gecko/20070723 Iceweasel/ . is it some version of firefox ?
01:48|-|Garda [] has joined #debian
01:48<chealer>yujin: technically no, but Iceweasel is almost identical to Firefox.
01:49|-|mjk [] has joined #debian
01:49<ameyer>As an end user, it might be a good idea to change the useragent string from Iceweasel to Firefox because some sites are stupid like that
01:50<madmix>iceweasel is identical to Firefox but u can't install it on a other distribution like suse or mandrake, u can install it inly in a free os like Debian
01:50|-|Garda [] has quit []
01:50<ameyer>I'm sure you could install it elsewhere
01:51<ameyer>it wouldn't be worth the effort
01:51|-|Garda [] has joined #debian
01:51<madmix>i'm iprove to install it in a suse 10.1 without any response
01:51|-|Garda [] has quit []
01:52<ameyer>it's just changing the name from firefox to iceweasel, and the creature humping the globe from a burning fox to a weasel
01:54<ameyer>madmix: you probably could compile the Debian source elsewhere, but you're probably better off sticking with your distro's firefox
01:54|-|Garda [] has joined #debian
01:55<yujin>chealer, Is firefox could be installed though marking "firefox" in synaptic package manager,which is descripted as "Transition package for iceweasel rename".
01:55<chealer>yujin: no
01:55<ameyer>"firefox" just depends on iceweasel, I think

01:57<yujin>chealer, So i need to download it from "" and installed by myself?
01:58<chealer>yujin: why would you need to do that?
01:58<madmix>probabily for me suse is too simple and i'm not spend more time to configure it too in Deibian elsewere i like to compile it and mak more attention of what i make probabily
01:58|-|kuchenmonster [] has joined #debian
01:58<ameyer>ok, I'm too tired to deal with this

02:01<chealer>madmix: which chipset does it use?
02:02<yujin>chealer, but firefox in window xp runs faster.
02:02[~]ameyer guesses that yujin has an ATI video card and therefore has to deal with horribly slow graphics drivers

04:11<calvin-cc-sa>well i sampled around , got things going but everytime i go back to windows for basic functions like playing my music or for ease of use, i tried fedora, slackware, ubuntu, suse, madriva .. i find fedora is a good distro since i enjoy the technical side of the OS, and i might want to make a living out of linux someday.. but right now i need some help in how to get all my multimedia set up in linux

Ask me about <break>. not supported here, in general. It's also newspeak for not stable. If you have to ask whether you should use it or how, you shouldn't. apt-get install apt-listbugs (!)

07:35<AleXXandEr>in windows it's ok with 32 bit
07:35|-|lemagoup [] has quit []
07:35<Aleric>I'd guess that 3.0 doesn't work with the latest kernel, they patches/hacked it to work anyway under unstable (hence the name including 'unstable') but was never included in testing. However, 3.1 just works.
07:35<widrone>Garp: But gsimmons seems to really be pointing out something interesting, the firmware that is. You have it, do ya?
07:36<dpkg>synaptics is probably a driver for the touchpad on many laptops for synaptics support in x install xfree86-driver-synaptics or xserver-xorg-input-synaptics and "man synaptics" for the driver options, if its not working try "modprobe -r psmouse ; modprobe psmouse". also see
07:36<Aleric>I have xen installed... that is, I'm quite sure since I'm running winblows XP in it... or not? Hmm, I guess not. I thought I had xen, apparently I am using something else.
07:36<AleXXandEr>if i set 32 depth, xorg say Given depth (32) is not supported by radeon driver
07:36<Garp>widrone: yes, I do (it used to work)

10:43<Cripps>okay, I'm headed over to the freenode room to see if anyone there can help me with my mic input problem.
10:44<abrotman>yes .. the same one i posted above

10:45<gsimmons>!tell arguapacha -about remove gnome
10:45<Cripps>arguapacha, *theoretically* you could do: apt-cache search gnome > gnome.txt; apt-get remove --purge < gnome.txt; apt-get install kdm kde-core
10:46<Cripps>heh, I'm not a bot ... that was just great timing ;)
10:46<arguapacha>LOL ^O^ thanks a lot!
10:46<greenmang0>arguapacha: better use aptitude
10:47<Cripps>arguapacha, mind you, I've never used the first two commands in that set before.

11:18<Tb0n3>well, it's running at full power

Modern releases allow you to pin a version to subvert any packages you discover to be too risky (see <pinning>). Older releases only allowed holding (see <hold>).

21:20<user01>interbird: i just redownloaded it, the first iso didnt match and i didnt check it so i have a cd for a coaster now
21:20<df1amb>user01: when there are bad blocks than your hard disk is not far away from a real bad crash. Try running badblocks /dev/your_device to check that.
21:20<df1amb>user01: badblocks are physical failures of the disk
21:21<interbird>user01: confusing... 1st iso, more iso's. do you have an iso-file that matches the checksum ?

21:26|-|duekiller [] has joined #debian
21:26<duekiller>evening everyone
21:26<interbird>a cdr is different from a dvd; it depends on the burning software ...
21:27<interbird>cd-roms and cdrws cannot allways be checked against an iso for checksum because there are different ways to burn them; like CDROM, CDROM-multisession, etc.
21:28<user01>interbird: when i do cat /media/cdrom0/ | md5sum i get d41d8cd98f00b204e9800998ecf8427e which is the same as before . . . but not the same
21:28<user01>not the same as e58efeeec5a80314e9f2d9c9b404cc3e
21:28<duekiller>can anyone recommend a good usenet client for kde ?
21:29<interbird>that is caused because what i said; it's no indication the burnt cdrom is bad; just boot from it and see what happens. do you have a dvd-writer ?
21:29<user01>interbird: yep
21:30<interbird>do you have a dvdrw or dvdrom to burn ?

21:52<tr0gd0r>Running 32bit userland with a 64bit kernel is recommended only for servers needing the absolute stability of 10 years of 32bit debian, but without the memory limitations the IA32 architecture bears, for example a 64bit mysql server on a system with 8GB or 16GB memory.
21:52<tr0gd0r>Running the mixed setup on a workstation is not recommended, because iptables, the XFS filesystem, non-free NVidia and ATI binary drivers do currently not support it.

22:36<george>it's going to be more difficult unless you have 3g of contiguous unpartitioned space somewhere
22:36<df1amb>and no problem with that
22:36<tr0gd0r>alright thanks for the info ill stick with 1.5
22:36<george>now having said that I think you can define a second swap partition
22:36<interbird>swap will only be used when running out of ram; increasing ram should result in less use of swap. if free gives 0 or little bytes used for swap, there is no need to enlarge a swap parition
22:36<tr0gd0r>sounds like it would be a pain to repartition
22:37<lupine_85>just add a swap file or two, if you need it

22:41<interbird>Ayreonaut: did you check the ati-site for linux-drivers ?
22:41<george>is 30401 the last cyl?
22:42<george>maybe the radeon driver will work for the x1300, or maybe the fglrx driver will
22:42<df1amb>Ayreonaut: go to radeon page, download the linuxdriver and follow the instructions in their install guide
22:42<Ayreonaut>fglrx doesn't seem to be supported by XORG
22:43<george>well it's proprietary
22:43<Ayreonaut>and fglrx is that driver
22:43<Ayreonaut>george: yeah, which is why I'm looking for documentation on doing it without debian runs xorg
