01:14<bleck>I'm trying to re-install grub, so i've booted using a knoppix cd, and I've done 'chroot /target' so its now in the correct root, I run "grub-install" but it won't find /dev/sda (because udev isn't linked to the /target/dev dir)
01:15<bleck>do I need to bother doing a chroot?
01:16<bleck>had anyone else been through this painful endeavour?

01:26<dpkg>somebody said grub was the Grand Unified Bootloader at . It's an extremely powerful boot loader that can boot a lot of OSes, understands a lot of filesystems including reiserfs and XFS since 0.97, but see For an install guide see, or aptitude install grub grub-doc. Also a distributed internet crawler. Ask me about <grub dvorak>.
01:26|-|veo^^ [~veo@] has joined #debian
01:26<twb>I think you don't chroot but instead do grub-install --rootdir=/target or something

03:18<sandaili>sorry, I was looking for the documentation LOL. Yes, Supaplex
03:18<sandaili>I was looking for how to bring back the window decoration to a window I took it away from
03:19<sandaili>I thought I'd do something like right click and have the option to redecorate, but it doesn't work like that I see :)
03:21<jm_>how did you take it away then?
03:23<Supaplex>right click the title bar, hit decorate, and the titlebar goes poof.
03:23<Supaplex>hehe I'm wondering the same thing now. :P
03:23<sandaili>right. I want it to come back :)
03:24<sandaili>I am putting my xml file with the keybindings in my home directory, then I'll try the shortcut
03:24<jm_>maybe alt-space to get menu back?

03:27<Supaplex>sounds like a not so stupid ? to me. *shrug*
03:27<sandaili>yeah. That's what I figured, but try googling it'd think it would pop up somehwere
03:27<sheldonh>mmmmm, luks is the shit
03:27<sandaili>but I couldn't find it.
03:28<Supaplex>ewps, my synergy clients all died. gaw!
03:28<sandaili>that sucks!
03:29<Supaplex>yay, they reconnected. symergys died when I restarted X :)
03:29<Supaplex>hummm time to stash that in .xinitrc eh?
03:29<sandaili>hehe. You know how many times lately I have thought the computer was having issues -- my internet goes out almost every other hour now
03:29<sandaili>they are....upgrading...
03:30<Supaplex>smells like a comcast
03:30<sandaili>exactly. I'm going to look for a good DSL company
03:30<sandaili>you'd think silicon valley would have some sweet internet but no
03:30<Supaplex>lol, and I didn't even /wi you first. :P
03:31<sandaili>the reason I hesitate to get DSL is that I live in an apartment built in the 60's and the phone lines are also from the 60's and sunbaked
03:31<Supaplex>no fttp? :`(

03:32<Supaplex>redundancy is not in the comcast vocab

03:43<saintk>Hiya, I am trying to assign a proccess to a specific core using 'taskset', now i have a proccess which writes a pid file with its pid number in it. I want taskset to extract the number from that pid file, but i cannot find how to do that (not in the manual, nor on google), does any one know how to do this ?
03:45|-|hypn0s [pino@] has joined #debian
03:47<jm_>sorry, no
03:47|-|allisterb [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
03:47<jm_>I doubt taskset can do it, but it's trivial with shell constructs
03:48<saintk>How does one normally use taskset on a proccess then which sometimes reboots?
03:48<saintk>as the pidnumber changes each time
03:48<jm_>grab its PID from pidfile, like you said
03:49<saintk>hmm, any idea what command i should be using then to do that automaticly when the proccess starts ?
03:49|-|Garda [] has joined #debian

04:25<jm_>idefixx: which means that if you have remote systems connecting to this server, or local clients using old client libraries, connections will fail

06:56<themill>wesley_: look at man find and the -nouser option
06:56<wesley_>ok! will do
06:56<themill>wesley_: or the -uid option
06:57<themill>wesley_: something like "find /path/to/dir -uid 9999 -exec chown username {} \; " or alternatively use xargs.
06:58<themill>wesley_: and next time you do the rsync, don't run it as root but as the user who actually owns the files if you can. That gets around such problems.

08:14<jm_>sheldonh: I don't think so

12:47<@weasel>that's not a real question either.
12:47<dpkg>If you have a question, just ask! For example: "I have a problem with ___; I'm running Debian version ___. when I try to do ___ I get the following output ___. I expected it to do ___." Don't ask if you can ask, or if anyone uses it, or pick one person to ask (ask the whole channel!). We're all volunteers; make it easy for us to help you. If you don't get an answer, ask later or ask
12:47<dpkg>Please do not ask if anyone uses <someprogram>. Instead, ask your real question. (If the real question _was_ "does anyone use <someprogram>?" ask me about <popcon> instead.) See <ask> <sicco> <ask-to-ask> <polls>

14:58<panagos>what is the proper way to have a 1280x1024 tty? (Alt-F[1-6])
14:58<lupine>amd64 gives you 64-bit addressing... and hassle getting stuff like flash working

14:59<IRCMonkey>Don't go one freenode!!
14:59<stew>IRCMonkey: are you talking about just the kernel? or the whole os?
14:59<IRCMonkey>stew: the whole os
14:59<lupine>well, not much point having a 64-bit kernel if you're having a 32-bit userspace
14:59<stew>lupine: sure there is
14:59<stew>IRCMonkey: what is the machien going to be used for?
15:00<panagos>stew: thanks, i'll try that :)
15:00<IRCMonkey>stew: server
15:00<lupine>not *much* point
15:00|-|veo^^ [~veo@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
15:00<IRCMonkey>stew: won't use flash, maybe, not even X (but probably yes)
15:00<lupine>for a server, amd64 would be useful if you're using > 4GB RAM
15:01<IRCMonkey>lupine: only 1Go
15:01<IRCMonkey>lupine: what is the point with the size of the memory
15:01<lupine>then it doesn't really matter either way
15:01<lupine>32-bit processors can only address 4GB in a non-hacky way
15:01<lupine>"only"... :D
15:02<IRCMonkey>lupine: only _2_ Go
15:02<stew>IRCMonkey: if you are only going to have 1 GB of ram you might want to stay with 32 bit because in 64 bit, application will tend to use more memeory
15:03<IRCMonkey>lupine: we are in 2012, you know :)
15:03<stew>IRCMonkey: *some* (not many) applications would run faster under 64 bit
15:03<lupine>then why aren't we all using SPARC?
15:03<IRCMonkey>stew: more memory: got
15:04<stew>IRCMonkey: how much memory is the server going to have?
15:04<IRCMonkey>lupine: why you say we should use sparc (I would like to laugh two)

17:04<drone77>sybariten, if you do then change the write to harddrive time so you dont kill the flash drive so quickly
17:04<panagos>i only get to see questions about my keyboard and mouse
17:05<panagos>and the question in the beginning about the framebuffer
17:05<stew>panagos: yeah, that version selects a driver at startup instead
17:05<sybariten>drone77: been reading up a bit on this lately, or actually this day, and it seems one can do calculations that says that in the worst case, your average USB stick will last 2.5 years or something, anyhow

17:40-!-andre_ [] has joined #debian
17:40<stew>!new alsa
17:40<dpkg>rumour has it, new alsa is to compile newer alsa drivers for your running kernel: first download an alsa-source .deb from ; install it with dpkg -i ; then run "aptitude install module-assistant build-essential ; m-a -t a-i alsa" ; you will need to reload your alsa drivers for the new ones to take effect. also ask me about <alsa checklist>

17:41<Taslak>Thanks and I assume the same holds true for the nVidia driver?
17:42<sheldonh>you're lucky you just need updated alsa drivers. you should try a dell vostsro 1700 :)
17:42-!-andre_ [] has left #debian []
17:42<stew>Taslak: seeing as how new your sound card is, you probably need to use proprietary nvidia drivers
17:42<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.
17:45<panagos>stew: note that i have no graphics (other that /dev/tty*), so that will be a bit cumbersome :P

20:18<lupine>short answer: you don't
20:19-!-mode/#debian [+l 307] by debhelper
20:19<lupine>if you kept the source tree around, you might be lucky and have "make uninstall" available to you... but that's unlikely
20:19<lupine>did you install it to /usr/local, or /usr? (`whereis wine` if unsure)
20:19<betel>lucas_amorim: I would re-install it from the tar.gz with checkinstall and then uninstall that deb-package
20:20*Supaplex neuters embedded pdf viewing in firefox (grr)
20:20<lucas_amorim>lupine: wine: /usr/local/bin/wine /usr/local/lib/wine
20:21<lupine>eh, you might get away with manually purging /usr/local of wine components then
20:21<lupine>if you're lucky, careful and diligent, anyway
20:21<lucas_amorim>betel: you mean, make uninstall?
20:22<lucas_amorim>lupine: you mean "rm -r /usr/local/bin/wine /usr/local/lib/wine" ??
20:22<betel>lucas_amorim: no, checkinstall is an easy way of making debian packages from tar.gz
20:22<lupine>that won't be the only stuff
20:22<lucas_amorim>lupine: what else?
20:22<betel>but since wine is in local it might be easier and faster to remove it by hand
20:22<lupine>if you have the tarball still around, betel's checkinstall idea might save your bacon
20:22<lupine>lucas_amorim: I don't know
20:23<lucas_amorim>lupine: I don't
20:23<lucas_amorim>first i have to find out which one I used
20:23<lucas_amorim>It was a long time ago
20:23<betel>try searching /usr/local for anything named wine and remove it if it doesn't seem to belong to something else then wine

20:47<Supaplex>if the hardware is flawed, no sense in using gdb. did you run memtest86+ for a few complete passes?
20:48<Clumsy_Root>it's a software issue. it used to work, and now it ain't
20:48<abrotman>Clumsy_Root: strace gives a decent initial check .. gdb is more informative ..

21:14<betel>well, there is a bug report, and it works for me
21:15<Clumsy_Root>well, that is true
21:15<Clumsy_Root>maybe i'll file one
21:15<betel>bernardo: I don't know, but can't the debian CD already be used as a recovery disc?
21:15<ne>helllo!! I am using Debian-Lenny, samba server is also installed. Question: "I can see some shared folders of windows boxes on LAN using Konqueror. How can i reach that folder from my console, what is the correct folder path?" I appreciate any comment. thanks
21:16<bernardo>betel: no...
21:17<Clumsy_Root>ne: better mount those folders, that way you'll have access to your files in a more comfortable way

22:54<GhostlyDeath>Supaplex, When it needs to download the packages it fails to do so
22:54<SM00TH>thx @ maybe the bot dpkg
22:54<gurpreet>SM00TH, you can use some download manager in windows for do this for you, get wget's windows port
22:54<GhostlyDeath>Supaplex, It does a few then it just stops

22:55<Supaplex>GhostlyDeath: does it download anything at all?
22:56<gurpreet>stew, about kept back, one thing isn't clear to me, are the packages kept back because they new packages or they need new _versions_ of the already installed packages?
22:56<gurpreet>they need* new packages or new versions?
22:56<GhostlyDeath>Supaplex, only a few packages
22:56<ameyer>could be either one
22:56<stew>gurpreet: because upgrading them requires a change in the list of installed packages. they either need some installed package to be removed or they need some not yet installed package to be installed

22:57-!-mark_ [] has quit []
22:57<Tarcas>gurpreet, they can be kept back because you marked them to do so or because they may cause problems if you upgrade. They should all be packages that you have installed.
22:57<SM00TH>is it possible to resuming downloads whits is?
22:57<kmap_lab>SM00TH: wget -c
22:57<gurpreet>SM00TH, yes
22:57<ameyer>stew: or they need a newer version of something else
22:57<stew>ameyer: i don't think so
22:57<ameyer>which breaks another package or doesn't exist yet
22:58<kmap_lab>stew: Is there a way to make aptitude suppress those kept back messages?
22:58<Supaplex>SM00TH: takes care of all this in 180kb or less :)
22:58<SM00TH>hmm... i think if i chancel the download now in firefox it will be deleted completely or not?
22:58<stew>kmap_lab: dunno

22:58<gurpreet>ameyer, yes, if upgrade can't even upgrade the installed packages's version then what would it upgrade
22:58<Tarcas>kmap_lap: At the very least you can tell it to install the packages that are kept back.
22:58<SM00TH>this channel is up to date!
22:59<kmap_lab>kmap_lab: That I know.
22:59<SM00TH>what this channel means about the news
22:59<SM00TH>about drive scanning?
22:59<kmap_lab>kmap_lab: Trouble is, sid changes so quickly. :-)
22:59<stew>so quickly it makes one talk to oneself
23:00<Tarcas>kmap_lab: If you want your packages to not change so rapidly use Testing. It's only a couple of weeks behind Unstable/Sid
23:00<kmap_lab>Tarcas: Er, no. I am always on sid. Just that I don't want aptitude to keep reminding me that several packages are being kept back
23:00<gurpreet>Tarcas, i have to do dist-upgrade to install them, so can i installed just the required packages to save downloading
23:00<Tarcas>stew: Last time he looked, someone else was using that name. :-)
23:01<kmap_lab>gurpreet: No. upgrade.
23:01<kmap_lab>stew: Sorry. :-)
23:01*kmap_lab has two screens open with two nicks. :-)
23:02<gurpreet>kmap_lab, upgrade is showing some kept back packages, the solution i know is to dist-upgrade, just wanted to know if some other solution exists, coz dist-upgrade will download lot of stuff
23:02<Tarcas>gurpreet: I believe a dist-upgrade will upgrade any packages you have even if it requires addition of a new package. It won't add packages randomly, and won't download packages that you're not installing if that's what you're asking.
23:02<SM00TH>what about iptables in debian; is this behaviour very different?
23:03<gurpreet>Tarcas, i got it, dist-upgrade will download just necessary stuff
23:03<stew>SM00TH: different than what?
23:03<gurpreet>SM00TH, iptables rules will be same, just the way to start/stop the service will differ
23:03<Tarcas>gurpreet: You can do a partial dist-upgrade by just installing the already existing packages that are being held back that you want the upgrades for. If you do all, it should be the same as a dist-upgrade.

23:03<SM00TH>the gui version if it is available
23:04<gurpreet>Tarcas, how can i do partial dist-upgrade?
23:04<kmap_lab>SM00TH: There's no GUI version. Try Guarddog or Shorewall for a GUI firewall config
23:04<stew>gurpreet: use the frontend
23:05<gurpreet>stew, oh yes, i almost forgot that frontends also exist
23:05<Tarcas>gurpreet: Officially there's no such thing, but if you only want to upgrade a couple of the packages in your held-back list, just apt-get install those packages. (it will upgrade just those, and install any necessary dependencies.

23:06<kmap_lab>gurpreet: Perfect.

23:06<gurpreet>Tarcas, kmap cool, thanks
23:06<gurpreet>kmap_lab, thanks
23:08<Tarcas>Speaking of apt, does anyone know about stalling when updating from a local apt-cache?
23:09<Tarcas>When I was running a local apt-cache, apt-get update would take terribly long, but then apt-get upgrade would be sped up as expected. Any idea why that might be?
23:10-!-keith80403 [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
23:10<Tarcas>It took so long that it wasn't worth going through the cache so I changed all my sources to skip it. I mean, it was longer than most upgrades by far.

23:37<ghostintheshell>what do you think it is?

23:39<ameyer>sounds like a mobo or psu to me

23:40-!-CompWizdr [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
23:40<ameyer>I'd guess it's a flaky PSU, though
23:41<ghostintheshell>it's an antec silent something
23:43<ghostintheshell>phantom, that's it
23:43-!-CompWizrd [] has joined #debian
23:43<ghostintheshell>phantom 500
23:44<Supaplex>try the newest motherboard firmware. at least that should be doable w/o buying anything. failing that, find a local retailer with a suitable psu and a good return policy.
23:44<Tarcas>Does it shut down cleanly, or start to come back up and then die?
23:44<Supaplex>and it can't hurt to reset the bios settings to fail safe defaults
23:45<Supaplex>atleast shouldn't hurt :)
23:45<Tarcas>BIOS shouldn't cause that unless he's overclocking or something. I agree it shouldn't hurt though.
23:45<ghostintheshell>i might be able to return the psu anyway
23:45<Supaplex>acpi is mostly software/firmware driven
23:45<ghostintheshell>though i'm not sure i can upgrade the firmware
23:46<ghostintheshell>i have no floppy drive
23:46<Tarcas>How old? And what computer specs? (More importantly, how many hard drives and what type)
23:46<Supaplex>resetting bios defaults is less invasive than a firmware update. try that first.
23:46<Tarcas>CD-R should do for firmware. That's how I did mine this weekend.
23:46<Supaplex>and cdrw is even better :)
23:47<Tarcas>Tru dat. I didn't have any around, however.
23:47<Supaplex>I have two xerox boxes full of unused media. I have to NOT buy it when I'm at the store.

23:50<Tarcas>I'll grab the 3 1/2 / 5 1/4" combo drive out of my mother's P 133 Gateway. Hopefully it'll work with something I have around here. I don't know why it wouldn't even with my newest, unless they have single-drive Floppy headers now.

23:52<ghostintheshell>gotta go. this is not the end of this issue, i feel
23:52<Tarcas>Ghost: I'm still wondering if it shuts down cleanly on reboot or tries to come back up and dies midway. If the latter, you may have too much draw on the PSU or something.
23:53<Tarcas>Also check your capacitors. I never saw specs on your PC, but if it's between about 2 and 6 years old, you may have some bad caps.
23:54<ndev0rus>would anyone know how to forward internet connectivity from my 802.11 card(eth0) to output to eth2(on-board ethernet) ?

23:55<sep>ndev0rus, depends on what you want, routing, natting, or bridging.
