00:35<the_ultimate_samurai>ok, the apt-get dist-upgrade is working, but it still cant find the module nvidia
00:35<the_ultimate_samurai>modprobe nvidia doesnt give any i dont know if its successful or not
00:36<the_ultimate_samurai>seems i cant modprobe something that doesnt exist
00:36|-|Yvonne [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:36<the_ultimate_samurai>so it should exist
00:37<the_ultimate_samurai>why cant i startx when my thing is set to nvidia
00:37<Grueber>is it "nv" in xorg conf?
00:37<the_ultimate_samurai>it was, but i changed it to nvidia
00:37<the_ultimate_samurai>nv works, but it cant do tv out
00:37<jm_>why don't you read dmesg/x server logfile?
00:38|-|zjason [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:39<the_ultimate_samurai>what am i looking for?
00:39<cafuego>the_ultimate_samurai: if modprobe prints nothing, everything went as it should.
00:40<the_ultimate_samurai>well if everything went as it should, then why does it say the module doesnt exist?

00:43<the_ultimate_samurai>from xorg.0.log
00:43<jm_>that's not a kernel module ...
00:44<the_ultimate_samurai>i thought it was...
00:44<the_ultimate_samurai>well what is it and how can i make it work?
00:44|-|chutal [] has joined #debian
00:45<jm_>which version of X server are you using?
00:45<the_ultimate_samurai>how do i find that out?
00:45<jm_>look at the top of X logfile
00:46<jm_>ok so you need the new nvidia driver
00:46<jm_>should be 100.something, what do you have?
00:46|-|kart_ [~kart_@] has joined #debian
00:47<jm_>100.14.19-1 will work fine
00:47<jm_>no no, that's the kernel - dpkg -l|grep nvidia
00:49<the_ultimate_samurai>...there are 3 different kernel modules..
00:49<jm_>look for nvidia-glx package
00:50<jm_>yeah like I said, you'll need something much newer - are you using Etch with backported X server?
00:51<the_ultimate_samurai>think so..
00:51<the_ultimate_samurai>the xorg says etch, but tty says lenny/sid
00:52|-|chutal [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
00:53<jm_>sounds screwed up :)
00:54<the_ultimate_samurai>though i did just get done doing apt-get dist-upgrade...but i never changed my sources.list
00:54<the_ultimate_samurai>if etch is no longer may have changed and i havent seen my xorg since
00:55|-|sponner [] has joined #debian

01:00|-|buzztracker [] has joined #debian
01:00<jm_>it's in sid, simple sid backport if it won't install directly
01:00<the_ultimate_samurai>says nvidia-glx is the newest version
01:02<the_ultimate_samurai>im not sure what sid backport means...
01:03<jm_>!simple sid backport
01:03<dpkg>First: See if the package has already been backported. Ask me about <backports>. If it hasn't, 1) Add a deb-src line for sid to your sources.list. 2) apt-get update 3) apt-get build-dep packagename;apt-get -b source packagename; 4) install the resultant debs.

01:22<arrrgrrr>neither works
01:22<elhaz>chealer, is lenny
01:22<d4rkl0rd>uh.. looks crazy

01:23<dx>"Find your java home directory (something like /usr/lib/j2re1.5-sun), and make sure you know it's name." I'm having much trouble finding this in Lenny after installing Java so I can symlink
01:23<d4rkl0rd>its nice it has new cheduler, but for what if i cant use that kernel :)
01:23<dx>Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_03-b05) is the version I have, may somebody help me?
01:23<chealer>jm_: 100 is not needed for xorg-server 1.3.
01:24<chealer>elhaz: which Linux image exactly?
01:25<the_ultimate_samurai>where did the deb's go?
01:25<chealer>elhaz: that's your installation iso, but it may install a number of Linux images.
01:25|-|kart_ [~kart_@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
01:25<chealer>the_ultimate_samurai: which deb's?
01:25<the_ultimate_samurai>4) install the resultant debs
01:26<jm_>chealer: so you'd rather have him explain how to fetch the minimal needed version from
01:26<jm_>the_ultimate_samurai: current dir
01:26<chealer>the_ultimate_samurai: what, do you mean, "4)"?
01:26<elhaz>i'm here with a old etch cd.. and he loads the e100 module.
01:26<the_ultimate_samurai>ah crap...thats my /etc/X11
01:27<elhaz>but die when is installing grub or lilo
01:27<jm_>you ran apt-get source in /etc/X11? not a good idea
01:27<elhaz>but i don't know why this new lenny cd don't load that module..
01:29<chealer>the_ultimate_samurai: you need to at least figure out which Debian suite you use if you want decent chances of getting help.
01:29<dx>is there support for the above problem?
01:30<jm_>dx: why do you think you need to set JAVA_HOME?
01:31<the_ultimate_samurai>its sid
01:31<jm_>dx: dpkg -S bin/java
01:31<chealer>the_ultimate_samurai: for, you should reinstall a suite appropriate for you, either stable or testing.
01:31<jm_>the_ultimate_samurai: you are not using sid, otherwise you nvidia-glx would be OK to start with
01:32<jm_>your problem is you're using Lenny
01:32<the_ultimate_samurai>it says lenny/sid
01:32|-|arch [] has joined #debian

01:35<the_ultimate_samurai>chealer: my source.list says testing
01:36<elhaz>where can i see what modules come in a clean Debian Lenny cd?
01:36<chealer>the_ultimate_samurai: OK. which Linux version do you use?
01:36<jm_>elhaz: they are part of the kernel package, Lenny has 2.6.21, not 2.6.18
01:36<chealer>elhaz: the exact list depends on your Linux image.

01:40|-|mjk [] has joined #debian
01:41<jm_>chealer: I remember now checking 2.6.22-486 when someone asked something last week, but as I keep using stable I easily forget what version is in other releases (which reminds me to upgrade to Lenny at home)
01:41<elhaz>i download debian-testing-i386-CD-1.iso from
01:41<elhaz>and i'm using that iso on my laptop.
01:42<elhaz>i see that in my laptop, when a run: uname -r
01:42<chealer>jm_: hehe. yeah, I used to have a stable machine, but they're all testing now. I'll try sticking on 5.0 for a while :)
01:42<dx>jm_ sorry. what do you mean by read the equivalent of? could you rephrase it? Not sure if there's anything left to do with my java installation
01:42<jm_>dx: run dpkg -S JAVA_HOME, does it return any files?

01:42<elhaz>the kernel image on the cd is 2.6.18-4-486

01:43<elhaz>humm this time.. yeah :) i just press enter
01:43<elhaz>without parameters
01:44<elhaz>but i can see any parameter that could solve the problem..

01:46<elhaz>no... i'm installing.
01:46<george>dx: he means if you did something other than installing a package to install java, then your readmes might be,,,
01:46<chealer>the_ultimate_samurai: yeah, that's what I meant. that means you're not running pure testing. is linux-image-2.6.22-2-486 installed?
01:46<elhaz>i want that debian recognize in the installation..
01:46<george>in a different place

01:52<chealer>elhaz: it may work after booting the installed system. otherwise, it will at least be easier to debug the issue.
01:52<dx>thank you guys for helping me
01:53|-|smeding [] has joined #debian
01:53<elhaz>but, i thinks that is not a real issue, is just that the first lenny cd don't have the e100 module
01:53<chealer>the_ultimate_samurai: I see... is synaptic installed?
01:53<elhaz>module that a old etch cd have..
01:53<jm_>dx: hmm maybe you don't have anything installed or it has been removed from Java 6

01:54<jm_>elhaz: how do you know it doesn't have it?
01:54<jm_>did you verify?
01:54<sheldonh>is it appropriate to request inclusion of a bugfix into the 2.6.18 kernel for etch, or is it security fixes only? in particular, the sky2-timeout3.patch on bug #411115 fixes a bug where sky2 NICs drop off the network and require a host reboot
01:54<elhaz>humm i true modprobe -l | grep e100

02:12<blarson>sheldonh: If it's not serious, grave, or critical it will not be fixed in stable. unstable doesn't have 2.6.18 anymore.
02:12<sheldonh>blarson: it's pretty serious. the sky2 ethernet driver has a bug in it that occasionally drops the NIC off the net and leaves it in a state that requires a reboot to correct :)
02:13<hamr23>i tested openemm and it works fine... but i'm not a fan of java... it uses too much recurses...
02:14<chealer>blarson: important bugs can also be fixed in stable.
02:14<sheldonh>hamr23: i really don't think you'll find a better alternative that's free and lightweight

02:14<blarson>sheldonh: That's an "important" bug.

07:57<redforce>it calls a program

12:14<dpkg>To fix your /etc/resolv.conf: As root, just do echo -e "nameserver a.b.c.d\nnameserver w.x.y.z" > /etc/resolv.conf && chattr +i /etc/resolv.conf (where a.b.c.d and w.x.y.z are your ISPs nameservers). A slightly more elegant solution is to use resolvconf instead, and specify the nameservers yourself in /etc/resolvconf/resolv.conf.d/head, or finally, to edit /etc/dhcp3/dhclient.conf.

12:24<george>does it actually install build deps itself? why are you saying I should use that?
12:24<weasel>it doesn't install them, but it checks them.
12:24<weasel>and because it's the right command to do the job
12:24<weasel>arguapacha: what makes you think installing is not sufficient?

13:12<brick>caleb, ok. but the thiggy is, if i keep the stuff in my original opt, i still get the msg that no space left, if i remove it, the programs installed there wont start and new programs are installed there..
13:13<george>Myon: I think I would too, but there's a way symlinks can start looking like spaghetti
13:13<fxiny>brick: do you have free space ? mk a partition cp opt edit fstab and reboot
13:13<caleb>brick: I think that is because some log file makes that...

13:20<george>that's not bad for /var, depending on what you're doing with it (it is too small if you're running a news server)
13:20<brick>it seems that when im doing ln -s /home/opt /opt it creates a link inside opt to /home/opt but does not link /opt it self to /home/opt

13:22|-|sasha [~sasha@] has joined #debian
13:23<george>one thing debian uses /var for is to store packages to be installed for upgrading or installing debian
13:23<george>but it seems to me you need ram more than you need disk space
13:23<sasha>(this is a before google search) hi on my debian i can never set my clock to the right time , and on boot there is a message "Unable to set the system clock to xxxxxx" any idea
13:23<brick>but how to fix this issue now? without to having reinstall the whole thiggy ? since ln -s only creates a link inside /opt that links to /home/opt .. does not link /opt itself to /home/opt. so when new stuff is beeing installed, its still is being put in the old /opt, that has no space.
13:23|-|mankod [] has joined #debian

13:26<brick>it worked. now i can just move all the stuff from opt.old to /home/opt and it should work, right?

13:27<brick>wonderfull. thank you:P

15:15<Eulex>KLM, 'the latest' is not very specific.
15:16<Eulex>also, you'd need to define 'hosed'
15:16|-|bastler [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
15:16<JasonS>define hoese
15:16<Eulex>and your real question is probably whether someone has a solution to this :)
15:17|-|gass [] has joined #debian
15:17[~]KLM smiles - thank you all. the latest refers to the latest Synaptic update available, hosed refers to Grub menu being updated incorrectly resulting in a failure to boot.

15:20<george>but also, "proper" includes descriptive language that tells exactly what the bug is, how to find it, and support for why you think it's a bug if you feel in any way it could be ambiguous, or if for whatever reason the maint disagrees
15:20<george>descriptive, concise, complete, understandable.
15:20<war>Anyone here notice with Xorg 7.2/7.3 when you double click in an xterm it selects URLs much faster than previous? For instance, a double click is normally select a word, but it seems so sensitive it now 'triple clicks'-- it selects the entire line instead of the URL?
15:20<Eulex>KLM, you need to have an mta set up to send e-mail to use it. or you can take the message it has created and send it manually when it fails if you do not.

15:25<KLM>Eulex -> menu.lst was overwritten with the wrong values, root was written as (hd0,1) when it should have been (hd0,0), root was /dev/hda2 when it should have been /dev/hda1
15:25|-|panthera [] has joined #debian
15:25<george>if you're not, you might start a conversation with the maint before actually filing a bug
15:25<Eulex>KLM, and your menu.lst is setup correctly to have these default settings?
15:25<JoeyAdams>none> I don't think the NTFS driver supports creating or resizing files yet.
15:25<KLM>Before or after the upgrade?
15:26<JoeyAdams>You can only write to existing files (without resizing them)
15:26<none>how to can i restore my apt?

15:26<KLM>Yes. A simple edit in the grub boot loader resolved the problem
15:26<Eulex>none, what did you do?
15:26<none>it don't read me all packages from the dvd...
15:26<JoeyAdams>You might simply need to do a `sudo apt-get update`

15:28<none>no, i only touch the sources.list

15:28[~]KLM nods - yes
15:28<none>ok, i'll try
15:28<Eulex>none, also note that ntfs-3g is not in etch. you'd probably need to perform a simple sid backport or compile it from source.
15:28<Eulex>KLM, it's a commented line.
15:28<george>ok, so you might want to test with a plain vanilla install of grub
15:29<none>damn it..

15:29<none>i can;t do that...

15:29<george>because already it seems that the observed problem is not located in the kernel
15:29<Eulex>none, there are no binaries.
15:29<none>but i have information on my root directory,, and i don;'t wanna lose it.. i only need copy it on my windows partition
15:29<Eulex>none, why do you need to reinstall? or rather, why do you think that you need to reinstall?
15:30<liable>copy it to cd and make life easy for all of us
15:30<none>Eulex can i give you an user on my debian?
15:30<Eulex>none, no.

15:30<liable>dont even think about doing that
15:30<Vakio>ntfs-3g is in backports.
15:30<none>an you help me? because i have internet on debian, but i don;'t have a irc client..
15:30<none>because my apt works bad!
15:30<KLM>Ok then - a question. Why did previous updates work ok and now don't? A;; joking aside I would have been stuffed if I didn't have another computer to resolve (and fix) the issue.
15:31<george>one, it's his box, and he can create this user if he wants... the offeree doesn't have to accept
15:31<Eulex>KLM, you do know that you can edit the kernel options at the grub menu before booting it, do you?
15:32<liable>george: so you think its fine to encourage people to offer accounts to random strangers on irc?
15:32<KLM>Yes Eulex I do
15:32<JasonS>george: theyre offering accounts to total strangers
15:32<KLM>The problem is - why should I?
15:32|-|none [] has quit [Quit: Star^Craft ]
15:32<george>well there is that. but he does have that right
15:32<Eulex>KLM, also, not debian's fault if you manually changed kernel options directly without changing the default ones (# kopt lines)
15:32<JoeyAdams>none> Put this in your /etc/apt/sources.list:
15:32<JoeyAdams>Not the link, the contents at the link

15:33<KLM>Thank you all - I won't bother filing a bug report on this one then.
15:33<Eulex>KLM, those default options are really convenient, new kernels will automatically get correct options when you install them.

20:20<Golf>hi there, upgraded to etch but graphics driver will not install as it wants gcc-4.0 but gcc4.1 is installed
20:20<Golf>gcc-4.1 is installed
20:20<dx>Golf; how do you know which gcc is installed?
20:21<Golf>well looking at the packages I can see it's gcc4.1 installed
20:21<Golf>and the install for the graphics driver says 4.1 will be used but it wants 4.0

21:21<dondelelcaro>yujin: the short answer is you shouldn't care; the long answer is it depends on the shell; checking $0 and then things like $BASH_VERSION is the general method
21:21|-|freealan [] has joined #debian
21:23<dli_>yujin, I guess you care most: printenv|grep -i shell
21:23<yujin>dondelelcaro, what i care about is which shell is invoked by gnome-terminal and where the shell get its context.

21:31<yujin>dondelelcaro, ok,thank you. i will do some tests.

21:35<george>I see you're expressing the opinion that for one thing the language of all bashes should have a common subset that never changes and I would agree
21:35<george>and when you use -only- that subset the code you write is portable
21:36|-|sebash [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
21:38<george>the unfortunate thing is that gnu is sometimes driven by RMS's "strategies" aimed at his political goal... and if portability turned out to not serve his ends I wonder how quickly he would throw out portability

21:40<dondelelcaro>in almost all cases, you might as well just write for POSIX
21:40<george>right... but isn't that sh?
21:40<dondelelcaro>it's not terribly hard, and the you don't have to worry about which shell you happen to be running on
21:41<dondelelcaro>well, not necessarily; on a Debian system /bin/sh is guaranteed to be a shell which at least understands posix
21:41<dondelelcaro>but it may not be that way everywhere

21:48|-|Jey [] has left #debian []
21:48<george>wouldn't that make it as dead as latin? :)
21:50<george>but presently and here and now, we have posix which is sorta like bourne but has a standard backing it
21:51<dondelelcaro>I'm not really sure what your point is
21:51|-|MrJoey [~joeyadams@] has joined #debian
21:51<dondelelcaro>there's a defined behavoir for posix shells. Writing to it means that your scripts will work on anything that behaves acording to the standard, which a great deal of things do
