00:04<bako1>ok got a quick question. Linux general. when i run the command top i see process of programs I know i uninstalled how do i get rid of them? sudo kill -9 wzftpd? wzftpd being the program i unistalled
00:05|-|gonzeau [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
00:05<bako1>it is ran as root
00:06<Deltantor>I dont really know, mostly because i use htop when killing processes
00:06<bako1>well i was checking memory
00:06<bako1>and it said i was using 2gigs
00:06<bako1>and i really have nothing running heh
00:06<bako1>Deltanor: should I ps aux then?
00:06<kingsley>bako1: Yes, kill -9 is one way to stop processes. "/etc/init.d/<daemon-name> stop" is another way.
00:07<bako1>kingsley: thank you i forgot about init.d
00:07<kingsley>bako1: You're welcome.

00:11<sortadi>bakon, you need the PID for kill -9
00:11<sortadi>bakon, not the actual name
00:11<kingsley>bakon: kill -9 should be passed the ID of the process, which is a number, not its name. You can see processes' IDs in the second column of "ps aux | less".

01:35<bakon>no one is talking
01:35<bakon>very quiet unless you ask a question
01:35<bakon>like you just did
01:35|-|pabs [] has joined #debian
01:35|-|pabs [] has left #debian [Don't rest until the streets are paved in poems.]

01:43|-|jae_ [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
01:43<dpkg>i heard flash is
01:43<gsimmons>george: You'd want the 'flashplayer-nonfree' package.
01:44|-|DocTrax [] has joined #debian
01:44<george>gsimmons: does that have the flashsupport thing in it? I'm playing with pulseaudio and having the client (in this case flash) on one machine and the audio hardware and pulseaudio daemon on the other... pulseaudio keeps saying "too many connections (64)"
01:44<george>and they say it's flash and flashsupport fixes that
01:47<george>gsimmons: also that package doesn't seem to be in etch
01:47<george>can you do like simple sid backport (even tho parts of it are closed)?
01:47|-|jae [] has joined #debian
01:48<george>!info flashplayer-nonfree
01:48<gsimmons>george: I'm sorry: "flashplugin-nonfree". It's in contrib.
01:49<george>ok, so does that have the flashsupport thing? (noting there exists a "flashsupport.c")
01:49<bakon>anyone here really good with rtorrent?
01:49[~]george is really good without rtorrent!
01:50<bakon>i meant scripting with it
01:50<bakon>there support channel is barren
01:50<george>oh you did?
01:50|-|xuwei [xuwei@] has joined #debian
01:50|-|dx [] has joined #debian
01:50<george>so does it have its own scripting language?
01:51<bakon>schedule = watch_directory_1,10,10,"load_start=~/Download/watch_stuff1/*.torrent,d.set_custom1=~/Download/stuff1/"
01:51<bakon>i understand that line
01:51<bakon> on_finished = move_complete,"execute=mv,-u,$d.get_base_path=,$d.get_custom1= ;d.set_directory=$d.get_custom1="
01:51<bakon>is the line that is giving me probs
01:51<george>that wasn't the question :)
01:51<george>so does it have its own scripting language?
01:51<bakon>i dont know
01:52|-|dx_ [] has quit [Read error: Operation timed out]
01:52<george>so what language is that written in?
01:52<bakon>c+? i dont know
01:52<bakon>i know rtorrent is written in c+
01:53<george>ok, so the first thing you need to do is determine what language you can write scripts in
01:53|-|mankod [mankod@] has quit [Quit: Saliendo]
01:53<bakon>well i want to edit that line i pasted
01:53<george>and what language is that line you pasted written in?
01:53<bakon>so i can upload a torrent into a specific directory and have it moved to another dir when finsihed
01:54<bakon>i have no idea
01:54<george>find out
01:54<george>what are three ways you can explore that question?
01:55<bakon>hah why do you talk down to me? heh
01:55<george>I'm trying to get you to think
01:55<bakon>i can easily google what i need and find the lnaguage
01:55<bakon>however i cannot script in any language
01:55<george>good, do that
01:55<bakon>and everything is already done for me by rtorrent
01:55<george>then you would need to learn how
01:56<bakon>i just need help decyphering that one line
01:56<bakon>you make a 5minute project into a 2week one
01:56<bakon>it was a simple question
01:56<george>ok, so it's either -you- do that research or -someone else- does that research
01:56<george>right? or am I wrong?
01:57|-|jixiao [~wenjixiao@] has quit [Quit: jixiao has no reason]
01:57|-|fixxxer [~fixxxer@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
01:57<bakon>someone may already know that string
01:57<bakon>and how to edit it to my liking
01:57<bakon>ive tried to research it
01:57<george>ok, are you prepared to pay my rate for doing the job?
01:57<bakon>and came up with nothing
01:57<bakon>you are weird
01:57<george>and that has what to do with this? :)
01:58<bakon>you twist things around
01:58<bakon>a simple No i dont know or nothing at all would of been good
01:58<bakon>most people help each other out and you never know when someone else may need help
01:58<bakon>i would not ask a question in a channel if I did not try to solve the problem myself
01:58<george>*: anyone think I'm handling this incorrectly/abusively/in a off-topic way? say now please. I'll stop.
01:58<bakon>theres no one else here
01:59<bakon>but I think you are
01:59<george>yes there is

02:00|-|cvarrick [] has joined #debian
02:00|-|buzztracker [] has joined #debian
02:00<george>so I'm elected to (1) do the research for you and then (2) rewrite your line so that you like it... oh yes, I forgot, and (1.5) interview you to determine what (your words) "to my liking" means and finally (3) deliver it to you
02:01<george>no, sorry, I'd want $1000
02:01<bakon>the line doesnt need to be rewritten
02:01<bakon>i just do not understand what it means
02:01|-|matth_ [] has joined #debian
02:01|-|GoinEasy9 [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
02:01<george>what would be required for you to understand the line yourself?
02:01<bakon>im done tlaking to you, you are too arrogant for me to deal with
02:02<george>that means: what would YOU HAVE TO DO in order to understand it YOURSELF?
02:02|-|mankod [mankod@] has joined #debian
02:03|-|matth [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
02:03<george>see bakon... to get free help from people where you won't generate resentment toward you, you have to show your willingness to do at least some of the work yourself
02:03<george>you haven't done any of that
02:03|-|anonymousgeek [] has joined #debian
02:03|-|anonymousgeek [] has quit []
02:04<george>have you noticed ANYONE stepping up?
02:05<george>cmon... anyone want to help this guy? please... go... help him...
02:07<george>reflect: want to help him?
02:07<bakon>i never asked anyone to do the work for me I merely asked for guidance in the right direction
02:07<reflect>yeah as soon as he determines what language the scripting can be done in.
02:07<reflect>just as you asked him to.
02:08<reflect>didnt think it was that complicated of a request if he wants help, know what your asking for help in.
02:08|-|esaym [~user@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
02:08<george>well maybe not at this point... he's saying "fuck you" in -so- many ways...
02:08<bakon>im asking for help with the config file of rtorrent, anyone familiar with rotrrent will know what Im asking
02:08<bakon>and when I say help i just mean guidance I will do the work myself
02:09|-|Cap_J_L_Picard [~ewanm89@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
02:09<george>what is the name of that file?
02:09<george>there should be a section 5 man page that describes its format
02:09<chealer>george: try avoiding CAPS when possible.
02:10<george>oh, even when I -am- yelling at him? :)
02:10<reflect>what exactly are you trying to do
02:10<suiside>it's not really a scripting language, it's a syntax used by the rtorrent config file, the rtorrent documentation would be his best bet
02:10<bakon>suiside: i am reading that and the man files
02:10<chealer>george: and yelling too, if possible :)
02:11<bakon>I believe i have answered my question already
02:11<bakon>however the answer is simple and if someone knew the answer it would of saved me 20minutes by telling my to edit custom1 in rtorrent
02:11<bakon>by hitting ctrl+x
02:12<suiside>bakon: then your not reading hard enough # When the torrent finishes, it executes "mv -n <base_path> /mnt/data/downloads/rt-completed/" # and then sets the destination directory to "/shared/downloads/rt-completed/". on_finished = move_complete,"execute=mv,-u,$d.get_base_path=,/mnt/data/downloads/rt-completed/;d.set_directory=/mnt/data/downloads/rt -completed/"
02:13|-|mode/#debian [+l 270] by debhelper
02:13<george>bakon: yay! now why did you have to make it so hard? listen: most of these volunteer help services get hit -all day- with requests. the least you can do is try to take the load of your own situation yourself... more generally, there is a way that most people whether they are helpers or not operate, and that is in a social, cooperative way where they do work that it's possible for them to do
02:13<george>you can join in.

06:18<dpkg>Ubuntu is based on Debian, but it is not Debian, and it is unlikely to live up to Debian's standards (see <Debian policy>). Only Debian is supported on #debian. Use #ubuntu ( instead. Even if the channel happens to be less helpful, support for distributions other than Debian is offtopic on #debian.

07:00<pgimeno>Hi, I realize this is not a Debian issue but it's related to how Debian organizes directories and stuff and I couldn't really think of a proper place. (If it's not appropriate here, I'll be happy to hear about the proper place.)
07:01<pgimeno>I have installed Prefbar for Iceape and it has an option to disable Flash. However, it does not work. It acts by renaming /usr/lib/iceape/plugins/
07:02<pgimeno>But in Debian, it's a symbolic link to ../../flashplugin-nonfree/
07:03<pgimeno>If I remove the symbolic link and replace it with the actual file, Prefbar works, i.e. the renaming takes effect.
07:03<pgimeno>(I mean, Iceape doesn't find the plugin when renamed.)
07:03|-|J1G [] has joined #debian
07:04|-|padavoine [] has joined #debian
07:04<pgimeno>Is there any way around this? The plugin is 7 Mb long, so I'd like it to be shared rather than duplicated. I use Iceweasel sometimes.
07:05|-|dpkg [] has quit [Quit: buh bye!]
07:05<fxiny>man update-alternatives , clue : update-alternatives --install or --config
07:05|-|dpkg [] has joined #debian
07:06<pgimeno>fxiny: I have used update-alternatives, but don't really know what you mean. The problem is that Iceape finds the plugin in /usr/lib/flashplugin-nonfree/ even when the symbolic link is renamed.

07:16|-|ernesto [ernesto@] has joined #debian
07:16<fxiny>pgimeno: what is in /usr/lib/iceape/plugins/ ? a symlink or a real ?
07:16|-|deltantor_ [] has quit []
07:17<pgimeno>fxiny: Originally it's a symlink. As a symlink, the renaming doesn't keep Iceape nor Iceweasel from finding the plugin.
07:17|-|Ugly_Duck [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
07:18<pgimeno>R0CK: I'm using iptables and trying to find a clue, hold on please.
07:18|-|Deltantor [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
07:18<R0CK>okay thanks.
07:19<pgimeno>fxiny: I have tried removing the symlink and copying the .so file to the plugins directory. In that case the renaming *does* keep Iceape from finding the plugin (I haven't tried with Iceweasel.)
07:19<fxiny>pgimeno: renaming ? you should run : update-alternatives --install /name /path/to to creatre a new one in /etc/alternatives or you shoul run update-alternatives --config name to "rename" it
07:19|-|oahong [~oahong@] has quit [Quit: leaving]
07:20<pgimeno>fxiny: The renaming is done automatically by Prefbar. It renames to in the /usr/lib/iceape/plugins/ so that (supposedly) Iceape doesn't find it.
07:21<pgimeno>R0CK: I think it's -j DROP rather than DENY
07:21<fxiny>pgimeno: try to install it update-alternatives --install /path/to
07:21<fxiny>as i said i don't have iceape so i've never done it before

08:36<jaakko>I have an old computer, 200 MHz and 128 MB ram. If I install debian (base), xorg-core and iceweasel, it is too slow for anything. With Windows XP and IE it is usable :-O
08:36<jaakko>How can I get more light weight graphical debian?
08:36<witte>jaakko: choose a light wm, not kde or gnome
08:36<jaakko>os is it just the iceweasel which is heavy?
08:36|-|dx__ [] has joined #debian
08:37<witte>jaakko: for instance icewm of xfce
08:37<jaakko>witte, I don't have display/window manager at all
08:37<jaakko>just xorg and iceweasel, still slow
08:37<jaakko>is xfree lighter?
08:37<witte>jaakko: xfee and xorg should be the same
08:37<Nemoder>iceweasel/firefox uses quite a bit of ram
08:37|-|J1G [] has quit [Quit: bye *]
08:38<witte>jaakko: you could try dillo
08:38<witte>instead of iceweasel
08:38<Nemoder>or netsurf, or maybe even opera

08:39<witte>jaakko: your pc should be workable however, but if you have some ram available, that would help
08:39<jaakko>Only really working browser I have found so far is dillo.. but it is HTTP 1.0.
08:40<jaakko>How did people surf the net with debian 10 years ago?
08:40|-|Hayden [] has quit [Quit: BitchX: to the rescue!]
08:40<fxiny>check fluxbox and links2 , maybe iceweasel runs with 128MB
08:40<witte>jaakko: your system is swapping constantly with iceweasel on?
08:40<jaakko>witte, I think so yes
08:41<TBBle>10 years ago, (Well, 7, but the machine was already old) I found konquerer faster than mozilla.
08:41<jaakko>fxiny, I tested links, and it fine too, but not graphical browser.
08:41<witte>jaakko: try this, maybe it helps:
08:41|-|J1G [] has joined #debian
08:41<TBBle>These days I'd try w3m w/ w3m-img. It's a text-browser, but with images.
08:42<fxiny>10 years ago ? 128MB was ok for woody
08:42<fxiny>jaakko: links2 is graphical
08:42<jaakko>fxiny, oh, then I will try it.. thanks.

08:45<jaakko>witte, that link seems to be handling more firefox in use, it will not help, even starting takes allmost 1 minute. Is there an easy way to compile lighter firefox?
08:45<witte>jaakko: just checking, and firefox should use about 30 MB memory
08:46|-|Twistendo [] has joined #debian
08:46<fxiny>i believe you can run iceweasel with flux+128MB

11:36<dpkg>To work with Debian source packages, cd to a location with free space. as root: 'aptitude install build-essential fakeroot devscripts' and 'apt-get build-dep {packagename}'. as any user: 'apt-get source {packagename}', cd into the directory it creates, edit 'debian/rules' to suit, run 'debuild -us -uc'.

11:37<lupine>but it's really simple - directory tree in data.tar.gz, everything else in control.tar.gz (these files are all identical to what you'd create for a source debian/ directory, so see the debian new maintainer's guide)

I didn't have dns-nameservers set for eth0 before, without a problem, but added them - hoping it would solve the issue... but no... What can I do?

16:34<S3v3N>at installation i have 3 options, dhcp automatically, dhcp automatically with dhcp hostname and configure manually
16:34<petemc>if its just configured via dhcp, setting the interface as such should be enough
16:34<S3v3N>interface like that: auto eth0, iface eth0 inet dhcp ?
16:35<S3v3N>but i had that and it didn't work
16:35<petemc>so i gathered
16:35<S3v3N>it didn't get dhcpoffers.. :s
16:35<S3v3N>very very strange

18:41<Greg>It is not a mouse Problem, it is a graphic card Problem: Is your video card an nvidia one? If so, there's a bug in nvidia driver that
18:41<Greg>causes exactly this problem with some nvidia cards (not all). The workaround
18:41<Greg>is to disable hardware cursor in xorg.conf.
18:41<Greg>Add the following line in the device section for your video card:

20:16<telemachus>here's what Wikipedia has to say about Unixes/Unices: Several plural forms of Unix are used to refer to multiple brands of Unix and Unix-like systems. Most common is the conventional "Unixes", but the hacker culture which created Unix has a penchant for playful use of language, and "Unices" (treating Unix as Latin noun of the third declension) is also popular. The Anglo-Saxon plural form "Unixen" is not common, although occasional
20:16<telemachus>ly seen.

21:02<Zathras>chealer, to make things even more interesting I have documented all lines out except for the smbpasswd lines
21:03<Zathras>this still results in 2 password changed messages

21:05|-|d7rt [~ni@] has joined #debian
21:05<telemachus>chealer: the problem is that during the processing of a shell command, pipes are checked for before variables are substituted, so in a variable a pipe doesn't "read" right unless you use the eval command to process things twice
21:06<telemachus>chealer: otherwise, the pipe is read as an argument to whatever command preceded
21:06<telemachus>(did that make sense?)
21:08<Zathras>next is not to use vars but to do one a single line: smbpasswd $USR $PWD
21:08<Zathras>this results still in 2 messages that the pwd has changed, but now these are on two different outputlines

22:41|-|linac [~lin@] has joined #debian
22:41|-|ni [~ni@] has joined #debian
22:41<Solver>Gunner: of course you might prefer mysql-server-4.1
22:41<Gunner>how so?
22:42<Solver>Gunner: some older software might require it. If you don't know you need the older package, use 5.0
22:42<Solver>Gunner: The problem usually arises with DBs that were written for an older version
22:43<Gunner> next questions are I need to get php installed first before mysql and how do I get either of them onto the system?
22:43<Solver>Gunner: pull the required packages in. let the package management system work it out :)
22:43<Solver>Gunner: that's one of the reasons Debian rocks :)
22:44<Solver>Gunner: get the mysql & php packages you want. dependencies will work themselves out
22:44<Gunner>like I said first off....rookie ;)
22:44<Solver>np :)
22:44|-|ni [~ni@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
22:44<Gunner>how do I get them?

22:45<Nemoder>then Actions/Install

22:52<Solver>you are probably still referencing the cdrom in sources.list
22:53<Gunner>the CD-Rom is the net install version of linux
22:53<Solver>comment out any references to the cdrom and run aptitude update again

22:58<Gunner>what I'm seeing in the sources.list file (after #'ing the CD-ROM lines) are four lines...first two are different Etch main ftp servers and then the last two are two different security update lines
22:58<Solver>sounds good
22:59<Nemoder>yes, it may want to upgrade a lot of packages based on those security updates

23:06|-|d7rt [~ni@] has joined #debian
23:06<Solver>Gunner: useful to help you debug mysql issues you may be having
23:06<jesus>sombody know a irc client like mirc?

23:10<Nemoder>it's probably already installed
23:10<Solver>Gunner: maybe it has already pulled it in
23:10<Solver>it was probably a recommended for the server
23:10<Gunner>now for php :/
23:11<Gunner>good lord

23:16<Gunner> how do I get my initial login (me) to have SU powers? or do I have to log in as me, then change to SU?
23:17<Solver>login and use su to get to superuser
23:17<Nemoder>the latter is recommended
23:17<Solver>you don;t want your regular a/c to have superuser privs
23:17<Solver>Gunner: an alternative to su is "sudo"
23:17<Solver>aptitude install sudo
23:18<Gunner>odd...when I go to SU I lose my colors when I do ls
23:18<Solver>yeah different environment settings
23:18<Nemoder>ls --autocolors i think
23:18<Solver>Gunner: it is discouraged to remain as superuser more than necessary

23:20<Gunner>CHMOD command right?
23:20<Nemoder>addgroup username groupname
23:20<Solver>Gunner: I recommend looking in to sudo

23:26<Gunner>yeah that one
23:26<Solver>ah cool
23:26<Solver>yeah nano is a great little editor
23:27<Solver>the key is that so long as you keep the root password you can fix a messed up sudoers file
23:27<Solver>my default sudo prompts you for _your_ password to to admin work, not to the root password the way su does
23:28<dondelelcaro>you should always use visudo

23:30<Gunner>ok...something tain't quite right
23:30<Solver>Gunner: how so?
23:31<Gunner>well I went into SU mode, edited the sudoers file and below where it had root ALL...yadda yadda
