00:00<deb_noob>I'm presently readin the grub manual to see how to pass those params if you got any other ideas please let me know
00:00|-|freealan [] has quit [Quit: leaving]
00:01<george>in lilo you say append=
00:01<george>in grub you just put the params at the end of the kernel line

00:03|-|Troyan0 [soul@] has quit [Quit: Me fuí pal carajo...!]
00:05<deb_noob>I tried to edit the kernal line but the changes don't appear to stay
00:05|-|tarcisio [~tarcisio@] has joined #debian
00:05<deb_noob>once I exit the edit and return to edit itt again the lines added args are not there
00:06<tarcisio>como posso resolver ''Você possui 1 pacote quebrado em seu sistema !''
00:07|-|Gekz [] has quit [Read error: Operation timed out]
00:08<deb_noob>Also I tried adding them to the end of thekernal line and selecting boot and it still produces the same result a video mode my monitor doesn't support. Should I try reinstalling debian in expert more?
00:09<deb_noob>I've been at this since 2pm eastern
00:09|-|donny [~donny@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:09<deb_noob>it's more than 9 hours now and I still haven't been able to use anything more than the grub shell
00:10|-|mov [] has quit [Quit: .]
00:10<deb_noob>I read online for hours before comming here for help
00:10|-|Kalessin [] has joined #debian
00:10|-|Gekz [] has joined #debian
00:10<deb_noob>I never had this much trouble with fedora or mandrake
00:11<deb_noob>I'm hoping to get debian up and running so I can configure my stuff and start usig it
00:11<deb_noob>but for some reason I can't get by this default video behavior at the end of the boot
00:12<deb_noob>shoul I be looking for gnome solutions? or is there some way I can add a param to grub to allow me to boot without X
00:12<george>first... you realize this is the kernel doing this
00:12<deb_noob>at this point I would be happy to see a console
00:12<george>but second... why debian if it doesn't work?
00:13<deb_noob>I didn't know it wouldn't work until i completed the install
00:13<george>go in and turn off x and boot it
00:13<deb_noob>I've invested 9 hours in debian, and out of all the distro's I want to learn debian
00:14<deb_noob>I can't get in
00:14<deb_noob>I can get to GRUB
00:14|-|tarcisio [~tarcisio@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:15<george>hmm, then you can try editing the kernel line from grub shell
00:15<deb_noob>I don't know how to solve this video problem. When it completes the boot my resolution appears to be one that is not supported cuz it causes my display to sleep
00:15<george>you could try init=/bin/bash
00:15<deb_noob>that would be a start...
00:16|-|mode/#debian [+l 290] by debhelper
00:16<george>or boot in maintainance mode
00:16|-|kop [] has joined #debian
00:16<deb_noob>I know of rescue mode, didn't know there was a maintenance mode
00:16<deb_noob>I have never successfully boot since install
00:17<george>well if yuou're usiong grub there should be two lines in the grub menu
00:17<deb_noob>however when I hit my power button on my tower, the display returns and I can watchthe halt
00:17<deb_noob>there are lines
00:18<george>so pick the other one, should ask you for root pw
00:18<deb_noob>I was told to try appending vga=0 to the kernal line
00:18<george>you can try that too
00:18<deb_noob>ait didnt work
00:18|-|donny [~donny@] has joined #debian
00:18<deb_noob>same result
00:19<george>when you tried booting with the second line?
00:19<kop>I've both libpcap0.7 and libpcap0.8 on my (etch) box. Both were automaticaly installed by aptitude. apt-cache can give me reverse depends, but, for example, both libs reverse depend tcpdump. How do I find out why each lib is on my box, what installed packages caused it to be installed?
00:20<deb_noob>are you referring to the second line as in the second menu option to load single user?
00:21<kop>deb_noob: Your screen goes blank after booting?
00:21<george>deb_noob: right
00:21<deb_noob>where in grub would I add init=/bin/bash at the end of the kernal line?
00:21<deb_noob>yes screen resolution not compatible with my monitor it goes to sleep
00:22<george>well I think your debian install is loading a video module at startup whioch is screwing yuou up
00:22<deb_noob>I agree, I'm using an NVIDIA 5200 card
00:22<kop>deb_noob: You tried using a another virutal console, one without X running? By typing Ctrl-Alt-F1 for example, to get a command line?
00:22|-|MrNaz [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
00:22<deb_noob>don't know what module it loaded at install
00:22<george>a framebuffer one maybe
00:23<deb_noob>tried that Kop, I can't seem to change to console when the video goes screwy

00:23<kop>deb_noob :-(
00:24<deb_noob>so fb=800x600 for example?

00:24|-|chris_ [~chris@] has joined #debian
00:25|-|chris_ [~chris@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:25<deb_noob>so if I wanted to use vga=0 or fb=800x600 do I just add those to the end of the kernal line?
00:25<deb_noob>I can't seem to figure out how to make it keep the changes
00:26<kop>deb_noob : It won't, unless you edit /boot/grub/menu.lst
00:26|-|dli [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:26<kop>deb_noob : Yes, at the end of the kernel line.
00:26<deb_noob>ok well I'll try this again
00:27<deb_noob>if I can at least get to bash, whats the name of an IRC client I can use
00:27|-|dli [] has joined #debian
00:27<kop>deb_noob : A live cd might be your friend.
00:27<deb_noob>any recommendations?
00:27<kop>deb_noob : Boot from cd, mount your filesystems and chroot into your root fs. Then make fixes.
00:27<deb_noob>on a live D
00:28<deb_noob>provided I know what fixes to make
00:28<george>or a live c
00:28<deb_noob>my keyboard needs a cleaning
00:28<george>are you dual booting
00:29<kop>deb_noob : Right. Be sure to exit the chroot and then unmount your filesystems so they are left clean and don't have to be checked at next boot.
00:29<deb_noob>at the moment, I didn't think I would have trouble getting it started
00:29<george>or is this a separate machine
00:30<deb_noob>CCan you recommend a live CD, I'll use that so I at least have access to my root
00:30<kop>deb_noob : But the install worked, you got video. So it can be fixed.
00:30<chealer>kop: you could check dpkg's logl.
00:30|-|chealer [~chealer@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:30<kop>deb_noob : There's a debian-live project, or knoppix.
00:31<kop>deb_noob : I think the install cd might boot in rescue mode. You might need the full install cd, or maybe the net-install cd will do. (Worth a try.)
00:31<deb_noob>ok well with any luck I'll be back here and finanlly get this video issue fixed tonight for the moment I'll explore with a live CD
00:32<deb_noob>I have the Debian DVD
00:32<kop>deb_noob : That should work. Pay attention to the boot screen and it'll tell you what to do.
00:32<deb_noob>ok thanks
00:32<deb_noob>see you guys in a bi
00:32<deb_noob> :)

01:43<deb_noob>I managed to get into console and checked the X11 Conf files and it identified my monitor correctly but my Vid card was configured as Vesa Generic. Is there a configuration app for X ?
01:44<deb_noob>for those that are not familiar, I installed and booted to 4.0 Etch and my video was not configured correctly so I can't get into X
01:45<george>deb_noob: for now what you ought to do is make it so that x is not started at boot, and work on networking
01:45<george>once you have that
01:45|-|wolog [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
01:46|-|mode/#debian [+l 283] by debhelper
01:47<george>get a text-based irc client
01:47<george>come here
01:48<george>it will be helpful to have your debian running
01:48<george>maybe your networking is already set up?
01:49<deb_noob>I do believe it is working correctly I was able to browse
01:49<deb_noob>do you know of any text-base irc clients included with debian?
01:49<george>so your debian install is working except for a little piece :)
01:49|-|mendouer [~mendouer@] has joined #debian
01:49<deb_noob>basically yes
01:50<george>you can try bitchx, irssi, ircii
01:50<deb_noob>Thought bitchx was only for X
01:50|-|mendouer [~mendouer@] has quit []
01:50<george>xbitchx is :)
01:51<dpkg>bitchx is probably a fine irc-client build on epic and ircII. as a debian package, screwed up and not falling back to IPv4 when IPv6 ain't possible, or not as good as irssi, and needs less moronic /quit messages, or if you are an irssi user who is annoyed by said /quit messages, "/ignore -regexp -pattern BitchX QUITS"
01:51<deb_noob>thought so...I've used linux before but had to go back to windnows for a few years due to my employment
01:52<george>they made you reformat your hd?!
01:52<deb_noob>did not reformat...
01:52<deb_noob>ok, well I'll see you in a few minutes
01:53<deb_noob>here's a dumb question ... I forget how to shutdown X from console.
01:53<deb_noob>do I do stop X
01:54<deb_noob>or something similar
01:54|-|dyln [] has joined #debian
01:54<deb_noob>or change runlevel
01:54|-|mendouer [~mendouer@] has joined #debian
01:54<george>oh deb runlevels are all the same (by default)
01:54<deb_noob>but isn't runlevel 5 without X
01:55<deb_noob>just can't remember the correct way to shutt down the GUI from console
01:56<george>what did you do just this last time?
01:56<deb_noob>didnt shut it down...managed to get into a console with ctrl alt F2
01:57<deb_noob>sometimes my shift sticks so I wasnt able to ctrl-alt
01:57<deb_noob>as I said, gotta take apart my keyboard and clean it or get a new one
01:58<deb_noob>ok well I'll see you in a bit

02:31<Staz>deb_noob : irssi
02:31<deb_noob>I do not know how to shutdown gnome and X from the console or how to configure my Nvidia 5200 FX video card
02:31|-|maxx_ [~maxx@] has joined #debian
02:32<deb_noob>sorry apparently not installed

02:32|-|maxx_ [~maxx@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
02:32<Staz>'aptitude install irssi' then :)
02:32<deb_noob>sounds like a plan
02:32<deb_noob>I got a better plan. yes or no question
02:32<deb_noob>is there a configuration tool for the X that comes preinstalled in debian
02:33<deb_noob>or do I have to manually edit the conf file to get my video card working
02:33|-|wolog [] has joined #debian
02:34<Staz>Download an nvidia driver, install it
02:34<deb_noob>thats all I have to do?
02:34<deb_noob>can I do that with apt? or do I have to download it and manually install it
02:34<deb_noob>I wish I knew that a few hours ago
02:35<Staz>'aptitude search nvidia' maybe
02:35<deb_noob>so, do I have to install it manually or can I do it with apt
02:35<Staz>I usually grab the one on their website
02:35<deb_noob>i'm new to apt
02:36|-|mode/#debian [+l 289] by debhelper
02:36<deb_noob>so if I grab the one on their website, how hard is it to install
02:36<deb_noob>once I get X going I'll be able to at least use irc and firefox

02:53<sep>deb_noob, dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg to reconfigure X, Personaly i dont use the nvidia installer, since there are easier, and less messy methods in debian.
02:53<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.

04:14<Nsaneice>I was just looking at the "Getting Debian" section and there were 21 isos in the CD torrent section and three isos in the DVD torrent section...
04:15<Nsaneice>like is DVD 1 install, 2 packages, 3 docs?
04:17<dmytro>1st DVD is enough to install KDE or Gnome
04:17<dmytro>and has all essencial packages to work
04:18<Nsaneice>good stuff
04:18<dmytro>even more than base installation
04:18<Nsaneice>thank you
04:18<sep>Nsaneice, debian have a shitload of included software. but unless you have some wierd needs you usualy only need the first one.
04:19<dmytro>also you may want do download netinst iso whick gets aabout 400 Mb
04:19<dmytro>its iso has also minimal working environment to get started to work woth Debian in Xfce wm
04:20<dmytro>but its iso hasnt KDE or Gnome
04:20<Nsaneice>eh, I should be able to build them
04:20<Nsaneice>or just keep Xfce
04:20<sep>Nsaneice, most people boot from the netinstall cd, then dl just the packages they need when they need them
04:21<Nsaneice>the netinst is 163 MB, btw
04:21<dmytro>after downloading 400Mb netinst iso - you still have opportunity to install the rest of debian via same mirror u used

04:25<deb_noob>Thanks to everyone who helped, after reconfiguring my Xserver all is well
04:25<dmytro>but maybe 5th version is not stable as 4th (KDE)
04:26<deb_noob>can anyone recommend a really nice IRC client for gnome?
04:26<dmytro>as newest Gnome buggy .. than Debian using
04:28<dmytro>im using irssi wich isnt mouse handled :)
04:28<dmytro>XChat suits for Gnome though
04:29<deb_noob>I just launched the APT updater in gnome and found it quite difficult to manoeuver
04:29<deb_noob>it says there are a couple of updates to install

09:18<dpkg>i guess kerberos is a cross-platform networked security and authentication system for accessing services., or not so well supported in debian, or getting better slowly in debian woody/sid
09:18<cyrax>when you open a window they have a "footprint" (is it the correct term?) on the taskbar (panel @ the bottom)

09:19<cyrax>I am sorry, but I cannot get the right term here.
09:19<cyrax>if you click on this footprint it either raises or minimises the windows.

09:23<padski>yeah, be grateful! ;-)
09:23<azeem>cyrax: it's because the title on the task bar entry gets set to the title of the webpage

09:28<edthefox>cyrax: I use windows and ssh into my debian machine if i need anything that linux can handle
09:28<cyrax>ifvoid, that sounds pretty bad considering that I can run XP on the same machine pretty smoothly. I wanted to dump XP and I started looking @ other distros. I noticed one thing that I could play 720p video files pretty smoothly on XP in VLC. However I get "filled up the buffer" in almost all of the media players on Debian.
09:29<kooll>is there a way to keep a machine 'responsive enough' even when a lot of process use cpu/disk/mem and anything ? I tried (on a 2.6.19 kernel) to see what would happen if I compile the last kernel tree with 'make -j', and it's ... quite bad
09:29<cyrax>edthefox, I live in South Korea and unfortunately the internet banking here requires that I use Internet Exploder + ActiveX controls. Pretty lame but unavoidable.
09:30<ifvoid>kooll: how much memory do you have?
09:30<ifvoid>cyrax: I agree, and luckily people are working on the issues
09:30<edthefox>cyrax: totally understandable, in fact I work at a bank
09:30<kooll>ifvoid: 2GB
09:30<ifvoid>cyrax: the next kde will use much less memory, for example
09:30<cyrax>ifvoid, it better use lesser memory. This is painful.
09:31<ifvoid>cyrax: but firefox and OOo are such monstrous beasts that's it's pretty hard to clean them up, I guess
09:31<cyrax>I REALLY REALLY REALLY want to avoid installing the proprietary drivers from NV
09:31<ifvoid>kooll: hmm
09:31<ifvoid>kooll: IME, recent kernels (after 2.6.15 or so) have pretty decent interactive behaviour

15:14<helpme>whats the command to check the uptime of your box?
15:15<helpme>15:21:28 up 55 days, 19:03, 1 user, load average: 0.00, 0.00, 0.00
15:15<helpme>w00t :)
15:15<helpme>if it werent for that blackout we had 2 months ago
15:16<Solver>just never let uptime get in the way of system security or performance :)
15:16<helpme>its mainly a file server / podcast server

15:17<helpme>security isnt that much of an issue for this pc
15:17<helpme>its blocked off from the outside
15:18<helpme>dd-wrt ftw :)
15:18<Solver>that certainly helps. The principal of security in depth tell us to always keep the systems as secure as possible anyway. someone might breech the firewall one day and attack the box
15:19[~]Solver is being the voice of best practice :)
15:19<helpme>yea that could happen
15:19<helpme>in theory
15:19<helpme>but if someone goes through all that trouble to get a copy of my resume
15:19<helpme>then so be it
15:19<Solver>some of them do it for the fun/challenge
15:20<Solver>it generates a lot of work for the poor person left to clean up the mess :(

15:24<paxcoder>yeah, i know

15:24|-|ruthmann [] has quit []
15:25<Solver>paxcoder: combo of Ubuntu/Deb for servers, ubuntu for desktop
15:25<paxcoder>and if I upgrade, things crash
15:25<paxcoder>Solver: nah, Debian for both - testing for desks, stable for servers:-)
15:25<Solver>i've come to the conclusion that Deb/Ub together give me some of the advantages of a heterogeneous environment while keeping management substantially homogenous
15:25<Solver>paxcoder: :)
15:26<paxcoder>like what?
15:26<Solver>well hetero/homogenous environments is always one of the big questions marks for a sysadmin
15:26<paxcoder>ability to use proprietary software and call free software open software and gnu/linux just linux
15:27<Solver>I get different packages available - eg there may be commercial Ubuntu support for one, or commercial Deb support for another
15:27<Solver>paxcoder: :)
15:27<helpme>aptitude is weird
15:27<helpme>how do I select desktop environment
15:27<paxcoder>dunno, I use apt-get
15:27<Solver>but since they use the same management system I don't need to deal with 2 different systems for prod boxes
15:27<paxcoder>Stalman made it :-)
15:27<paxcoder>use synaptic for that
15:27<Solver>helpme: you could use tasksel as suggested earlier

15:29<paxcoder>just kidding, you can deselect it :-)
15:29<Solver>so much stuff relies on being able to send email
15:29<Solver>you'll still end up with one of the MTAs selected
15:30<helpme>hopefully ill be able to get a full deb-desktop installed succesfully on this POS PC
15:30<paxcoder>what's a POS?
15:30<helpme>piece of sh*t
15:30<paxcoder>this new Xchat is interesting
15:30<Solver>or point of sale ;)
15:30<paxcoder>(sorry, ot)
15:31<helpme>a PC that runs windows fine but cant run and linux distro
15:31<helpme>thats a POS PC
15:31<Solver>run it as a thin client
15:31<helpme>but I want a full blown desktop
15:32<Solver>a thin client makes a POS box connect to a powerful box and act like a powerful desktop
15:32<Solver>LTSP is the best way to do this these days
15:32<Solver>for *nix
15:32<helpme>the only other "Power" box I got handy is a pentium 3
15:32<Solver>still better than the POS? :)
15:32<Solver>if so, it is a win

17:50<amphi>paveq: I don't know about that card, I have a 2200BG here

18:24<faheem__>amorok, sorry.

18:25<PetaWindows>alex: sry, "man debconf"
18:26<peter_>fpiat pumpkin0 it still dont work ;/
18:26<fpiat_>paveq, thanks
18:26<pumpkin0>peter_: did you restart opera ? did you close all operas running in background ?
18:26<paveq>so how about wlan controlling, is there working gui solution
18:26<faheem__>peter_: Maybe there is something wrong with it, but it doesn't seem to charge properly when I plug it in. Maybe I'm doing something wrong.
18:26<faheem__>peter_: Thanks for the suggestion.
18:26<alex>PetaWindows: yes I've tried that it only talks about how can I change frontend temporarily, but now I need to do that permanently. So I guess the questio is how can I change debconf frontend to noninteractive mode from noninteractive session.
18:27<peter_>pumpkin0, yes I did
18:27<paveq>would be quite annoying to use wpa_supplicant and console stuff when moving to different networks
18:27<PetaWindows>alex: I suppose there must be a configuration file for debconf
18:28<PetaWindows>alex: and with it, probably, you'll be able to change the configuration permanently
18:28<pumpkin0>peter_: open the URL "opera:about" and look for the "Plug-in path".
18:28<fpiat_>paveq, you shoud use "network-manager" which has kde or gnome gui
18:28<pumpkin0>peter_: does it contain: /usr/lib/opera/plugins/ ?

18:38<peter_>PetaWindows, it isnt ;)

22:34<jay__>Hi all, I tar gz'd a folder that has VERY important contents on my drive when backing up in preparation for a re-install. However now when I try to open the gzipped file I get the error. "gzip: stdin: unexpected end of file. tar: unexpected eof in archive. tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now". Is there any command I can use to try and salvage whatever is in the tar / gz?
22:35<jay__>The folder I gzipped was REALLY big, more than about 20 giggs. When I try to use gunzip, it tells me that "File size limit exceeded (4.2 GB) Core dumped"
22:36<stew>jay__: what type of file does 'file' say it is?

22:46<Acidripp>anyone live ?
22:49<dondelelcaro>jay__: well, neither of those have problems with large files.
22:49<dondelelcaro>jay__: so most likely the "File size limit exceeded" is a red herring, or you're not actually uncompressing on ext3.

22:50<jay__>however, when I try extracting or listing the files in the archive... it only gets to a certain point and then stops... it all lost where it stops?
22:51<dondelelcaro>jay__: most likely. stat foo.tar.gz; and see what the exact filesize is.
22:51<dondelelcaro>it's probably truncated at 4.2G
22:51<jay__>bull's eye
22:52|-|k-man [] has joined #debian

23:19<niyado>tell me what u think is, i will try all that u say to me
23:20<warlocku>what are you guys talking about?
23:20<niyado>about how to put quotation marks
23:20<dondelelcaro>niyado: but put them where? You just type them.
23:20<niyado>i cant :(
23:21<warlocku>might i wask why lol
23:21<dondelelcaro>niyado: doesn't your keyboard have a '" key?
23:21<niyado>i have to touch them twice to work but this is what they give to me
23:21<niyado> they are diferents
23:21<dondelelcaro>oh, that's some other character
23:21<niyado>" ¨
23:22|-|warlocku changed nick to warlock50
23:22<dondelelcaro>niyado: you probably need to switch keyboard maps then, or check out the compose mapings for your locale.
23:22<niyado>no no, i do the last time, but i dont remember how to do
23:22<dondelelcaro>niyado: you probably selected a spanish keyboard layout, instead of a us 105 key layout.
23:22<niyado>is a combination of keys
23:22<niyado>is not that
23:22<niyado>look i can do this stuff
23:22<warlock50>wait niyado what country are you in
23:23<dondelelcaro>!extended chars
23:23<dpkg>hmm... extended chars is to enter chars like ïÇô¿ or éâßñ in X, "xmodmap -e 'keycode 117 = Multi_key'". After that, you can use your rightmost windows key as a Compose key, e.g. pressing windows-key, ~, n in sequence will produce ñ or ñ, or the complete list of combinations is in /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/*/Compose, where * depends on your locale (utf8 is default), or similar functionality for the console can be achieved using the loadkeys command
23:23<dondelelcaro>niyado: see above.
23:23<dondelelcaro>dpkg: compose is <reply> see extended chars
23:23<dpkg>okay, dondelelcaro
23:23<warlock50>niyado are you using linux
23:23<niyado>im using linux
23:23<warlock50>if so just get the charcter map
23:24<warlock50>and change it
23:24<niyado>i know that is something whit the space key
23:24<dondelelcaro>niyado: so look at the compose map for whatever locale you're using.
