00:00<imperia>what was the command for checking the version?
00:00<kop>RIVE : Dunno. grepping for safe in the etch aptitude man page gets nothing.
00:01<imperia>debian:~# cat /etc/debian_version
00:01<kop>imperia : cat /etc/debian_version

00:02-!-silensius [] has joined #debian
00:03<RIVE>kop: I always use update wihtout the "safe" and for now did't had any problems.
00:06<imperia>with aptitude or apt-get?
00:06<imperia>it should be the same
00:06<imperia>but my aptitude says that
00:07<imperia>W: The "upgrade" command is deprecated; use "safe-upgrade" instead.
00:07<RIVE>That's the massege.
00:08<kop>They probably mean it then.
00:08<jello>aptitude != apt-get
00:09<RIVE>Which are the diferences jello?
00:10<jello>RIVE: too many to list...
00:10<javo>there are 2 different front-end applications for apt
00:10<javo>these are... sorry
00:10<jello>RIVE: in general, aptitude is usually recommended for daily use
00:10<RIVE>Wich is the most?

00:12<jiminy>I'm running a Lenny KDE install on an Apple PowerBook G4 12", and sound has abruptly stopped working. At startup, pbbuttonsd complains it can't find /dev/mixer, and aRts complains it can't find /dev/dsp (in both cases, ls -l can't find them either). KInfoCenter and lspci can't find any sound hardware at all on the computer. I've tried reinstalling aRts and libasound2, without any luck. Help!
00:12<jello>jiminy: what have you changed?
00:12<jello>new kernel?
00:12<javo>RIVE: all of these are good, apt-get is text based an you run it by shell
00:13<javo>aptitude has a text-interface
00:13<javo>and its easy for browse on packages
00:13<jiminy>jello: Nothing, AFAICT. I've gone back through the APT logs, and can't see anything sound-related. I'm running the normal Lenny kernel, and haven't messed with it.
00:13<RIVE>Yes have use aptitude in text, sometimes i'm lost with the options but have always figure what to do.
00:14<javo>i also use adept-manager, is a graphic interface for kde and is very visual
00:15-!-cpp [~cpp@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:15<javo>also exists synaptic, i think it comes instaled with the distribution too
00:15<javo>is similar to adept
00:15<jello>jiminy: what does `amixer info
00:15<RIVE>I use Gnome.

00:17<RIVE>jello, that's what i like of Debian, their packge managers.
00:17<jello>jiminy: it's in alsa-utils
00:19<jiminy>jello: cheers, will give that a try
00:20-!-grim_fandango [] has quit [Quit: Ex-Chat]
00:22<jiminy>jello: "amixer: Control device default open error: No such device"
00:23<jello>hmm, check dmesg to see if the device was detected on boot
00:27-!-TSS [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
00:30<jiminy>jello: doesn't look like it; I can't find anything there about sound, not even an error message

00:31-!-kurumin [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:31<Requiem>great, so I'm stuck on stable, possibly for a long time
00:32<jiminy>jello: Possibly. But it still works on Mac OS X (I dual-boot). Ah well, that's life. Thanks for your help.

00:35-!-Aaron [~43b777cd@] has joined #debian
00:38-!-xemacs [] has joined #debian
00:38<Aaron>Ok so I'm trying to install vmware player on Debian linux (basic install from the netinst iso) and im going through the setup etc..., but I'm getting stuck on a particular error message "What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running kernel? [/usr/src/linux/include]". This directory doesn't exist and I can't find these "C header files" elsewhere.
00:39<xemacs>apt-get install kernel-src
00:39<HennaX>Aaron: you need the kernel headers, best is you throw the meta package build-essential on there
00:40<jello>Aaron: apt-get install build-essential kernel-headers-$(uname -r)
00:41<Aaron>can u give an example of that syntax with some prepopulated information so I get an idea of what that command is trying to do?
00:41<Requiem>hmm, how do I edit grub to ensure a given kernel boots, even if it's the old version?
00:42<Odd_Bloke>Aaron: That is the command you run. You can run 'uname -r' yourself to see what will be substituted.

00:45<Aaron>command not found
00:45<HennaX>Aaron: what distribution?
00:45<jello>g'nite all
00:45-!-jello [] has quit [Quit: leaving]
00:46<Requiem>jello: non existant file and folder
00:46<Aaron>I installed it from this iso image: debian-40r2-amd64-netinst.iso from this url:
00:46-!-SeveredCross [] has joined #debian
00:47<HennaX>Aaron: and did you modify your /etc/apt/sources.list to be able to access online resources?
00:47-!-Dandau [] has joined #debian
00:47<Aaron>No, I did not.
00:47-!-ameyer [] has joined #debian
00:48-!-ameyer [] has quit []
00:48<HennaX>Aaron: the netinstall only provides minimal packages. compilers, kernel headers and such things is not on there
00:48<Aaron>im in that file and theres 2 lines:
00:48<Aaron>deb etch/updates main contrib
00:48<Aaron>deb-src etch/updates main contrib
00:50<Aaron>Yes I understand that, but my intention behind using the netinstall is so that i can add only the required elements necessary to run a particular program so that there is minimal overhead
00:50<HennaX>additionally, you need "deb etch main contrib"
00:51<HennaX>and the same for "deb-src"
00:51<hax>how would i use chmod with ACLs in debian?
00:51-!-murgatroyd [~alex@] has joined #debian
00:51<HennaX>also useful to add "non-free" at the end as additional repository
00:51<HennaX>Aaron: instead of "us" for USA you can use a mirror that is close to you. the website has a list
00:52<Aaron>change the 2 lines in that file to: "deb etch main contrib" and "deb-src etch main contrib" correct?
00:52<murgatroyd>Greetings... I am trying to tame some non-debian (proprietary, binary) software by encapsulating them in .deb's...
00:52<HennaX>not changing, adding. cause what is already in there is required for security updates
00:53<Aaron>adding...(and Im in US btw so i dont need to change those :P)
00:53<murgatroyd>I'm looking for tools to trace what happens during the regular install process so I know what to put in the package.
00:53<HennaX>i forgot which tool provided that auto generation of /etc/apt/sources.list
00:53<murgatroyd>Anyone got any ideas?
00:54<HennaX>maybe it was base-config
00:54<HennaX>am a bit rusty
00:56-!-xemacs [] has quit []
00:59<HennaX>Aaron: what i just see is that a package called "vmware-package" exists that would install all required dependencies and assist you in building a deb package of vmware-server or vmware-player
00:59<Aaron>Ok I'm so terribly bad with vi so that took forever, but i added those 2 lines
01:00-!-hasan [~hasan@] has joined #debian
01:00<hasan>any body will help me loading sype in linux
01:00<HennaX>Aaron: then "apt-get update" to update the package lists
01:00<Aaron>so theres a package that holds all the dependencies necessary to run vmware somewhere i can download?
01:01<Aaron>Because I downloaded the software off of vmwares site.
01:01<HennaX>Aaron: i am not exactly sure, but you could have a look at the package via "apt-cache show vmware-package"
01:02-!-hasan [~hasan@] has quit []
01:02<Aaron>No such file or directory
01:02<HennaX>did you "apt-get update"?
01:03-!-sindre [] has joined #debian
01:03<Aaron>yea i did, but i think some things errored
01:03<Aaron>not sure
01:04<Aaron>Is there a way I could manually download some of these things? I'll probably need to later anyways
01:04-!-javo [] has quit [Quit: ChatZilla 0.9.79 [Firefox]]
01:05<HennaX>downloading dependencies manually can be a pain
01:05<HennaX>i would work on the proper /etc/apt/sources.list
01:06<Hideo>Aaron: do tell what the errors were though, you're acting like it's nothing and we can just ignore it
01:06<HennaX>when you install things via "apt-get install" you get no package more than you need
01:06<dpkg>vmware-package is a Debian <contrib> package - available for lenny and sid - which provides a 'make-vmpkg' utility. This utility can create Debian packages of various VMware products and related software. See also <vmware support>.
01:06<Aaron>Its cause theres alot...
01:06-!-rdz11 [] has left #debian []
01:06<Aaron>for example:
01:06<gsimmons>Aaron, HennaX: Note that is not available in Etch.
01:06<HennaX>oh thats not even in Etch, i am sorry Aaron
01:06-!-cahoot [~radix@] has joined #debian
01:07<HennaX>but the very first step is to have the proper /etc/apt/sources.list followed by an "apt-get update" that works
01:07<HennaX>without that you dont need to poke anything else
01:07-!-teclo- [42@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
01:07<Hideo>!tell Aaron about paste
01:07<Aaron>on 2 dif i'm typing these errors out lol, but let me start typing some
01:07-!-rapid [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
01:08<HennaX>oh i see
01:08<Aaron>Err /etch/main Sources
01:08<HennaX>yes, improper line
01:08<HennaX>deb etch main contrib non-free
01:08<Aaron>Ign etch/updates/contrib Packages/DiffIndex
01:09<Aaron>thats like 2 of them out of 10+
01:09<Hideo>look for the Err lines
01:09<HennaX>hang on a moment
01:11<HennaX>Aaron: here is an example how it should look like:
01:11<HennaX>line 5 and 6 are for multimedia related stuff that you could possibly need or not
01:11<HennaX>video codecs, stuff like that
01:11<Hideo>I think you should copy that down verbatim
01:12<Aaron>i dont really want to type that into vi, im so bad at it it takes me 5 min to do like 2 lines >.<
01:13-!-jm_ [] has joined #debian
01:13<Odd_Bloke>Aaron: Press 'i' before starting to type. Press 'Esc' when you're finished.
01:13<HennaX>Aaron: try on that etch machine if "apt-setup" is available. that should generate you such a file
01:14<HennaX>Aaron: and try "nano" instead. that editor is much easier to handle
01:14<Aaron>Just to make sure we arent digressing too much, I did actually download some supposed headers but they do not work here is the exact error message i get when I point the install path to them:
01:15<Aaron>gcc-4.1: error trying to exec 'cc1': execvp: No such file or directory
01:15<HennaX>Aaron: forget this manual downloading
01:15<Aaron>The directory of kernel headers (version ) does not match your running kernel
01:15<Aaron>(version 2.6.18-5-amd64). Even if the module were to compile successfully, it
01:15<Aaron>would not load into the running kernel.
01:15-!-NightMonkey [] has joined #debian
01:16<HennaX>you are too stubborn to do the first step right before you care about the later steps
01:16<Aaron>No, I actually failed to inform you that I had already tried this prior to today earlier

02:25<Requiem>right, only want to add it to the current kernel
02:25<Requiem>I don't know where to put the command

02:58<panagos>to subscribe to a bug means only to receive notifications via mail about its progress?
02:59<panagos>because i received an email from the bts but the To: line doesn't match with my address!
02:59<SixT6> That and more subscribers == higher priority
03:00<blarson>SixT6: No, number of subscribers only means number of people who want to get all the mail sent to the bug.
03:01<blarson>panagos: the To: line of mail isn't changed for other receipents.
03:04<blarson>I don't even think there's an easy way to get the number of people subscribed to a bug. And I work on the BTS.

03:49<Spiritwolf>then gets to "Detect and mount CD=ROM"
03:49<Spiritwolf>My installation cd rom couldn't be mounted.
03:49<Spiritwolf>The probably means that the CD-Rom was not in the drive.

It means the packages you select for installation will be downloaded from the mirror you choose to use.

10:07<Surge>Hello, I was wondering if anyone can suggest a good tutorial on how to rebuild debian packages, say if I want to upgrade to a newer version... (my goal is to rebuild nvidia-glx with latest drivers for etch, and I want to get gcc-4.2 compiled for etch as well)
10:08<njende>azeem: the 2.6.23 didnt boot properly. Came up that the kernel couldn't find its initrd for any reason
10:08-!-posix [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
10:08<njende>so, actually I'm booting uo with the 2.6.22
10:08<azeem>njende: well, that's another problem then
10:08<azeem>the answer to your initial problem is "2.6.22 doesn't exist in unstable anymore"
10:09<njende>azeem: okay, so I'll upgrade at least to 2.6.23?
10:10<azeem>njende: you should be able to answer such questions yourself if you run unstable

10:23<Zathras>thctlo2, I would like to use NUT as my ups managing package (I do so now), but I want to make a more complex shutdown scheme. I would like to define servers into groups and issue shutdown commands (flag in NUT) to shutdown specfic servers or servergroups. But I think that I can only broadcast a shutdown flag so all server will have to go down
10:23<amel>so just || objcopy -R .modinfo atl1.ko || in terminal?

12:23<chump_>you'rea godo man sir
12:23<Supaplex>gzip won't know about your filesystem structure, so if you have dirty space that's free, it won't save much space.

15:48<erore>i have set up the printer via hplip by cup and by kde all any time and everytime with the same result just root can acces to device

16:18<steven-m>azeem: Myon: I added an item incorrecty and want to delete it.
16:18<sun>every time ive tried f-spot it gets into some sort of initialization step involving making a lot of thumbnails and this takes so long that ive never made it past that step with my full collection, otherwise the interface seems nonintuitive to me ; i guess i need something lightweight and fast since i have a lot of photos and i dont want a lot of overhead

17:18<panagos>xemacs: i have sshd installed, "ssh localhost" works
17:19<johns>(sshd is also not a package name)
17:19<panagos>is there the possibility that my isp is blocking the connection?
17:19<edthefox>!tell chester_martins about virtualbox
17:19<xemacs>also you may need to edit a file in /etc, not sure which one
17:20<defi0n>that means your isp just blocks port 22
17:20<panagos>what is the default configuration?
17:20<defi0n>you should change the sshd listen port to 54011 or whatever
17:20<defi0n>in /etc/ssh
17:20<johns>panagos: check /etc/hosts.allow, /etc/hosts.deny, /etc/ssh/sshd_config and your router
17:20<panagos>does anyone know whether sshd's default configuration allows remote connections?
17:20<defi0n>it does
17:20<azeem>panagos: did you try to login as root?

19:44<dpkg>rumour has it, backport is a package from a newer Debian branch, compiled from source for an older branch to avoid dependency and ABI complications. or or or ask me about <simple sid backport> and <backport caveat>, or <>

19:50<bluebaffoon>timewarner is abt 10 Mbps but it runs at 5 mbps max .... go figure
19:50<streuner>ed__: who knows?
19:50<bluebaffoon>atleast verizon runs at the quoted 3 Mbps speed
19:50<streuner>ed__: i only run Debian not ubuntu...
19:50<ed__>Hmm, I sometimes wonder why ubuntu exists.
19:51<bluebaffoon>3.0 Mbps is 350 KB/s max
19:51<ed__>Okay, so they have a slightly different way of doing things, but is it worth making a new distro about it?
19:51<bluebaffoon>same with 56 Kbps its equivable to 7 KB/s max ... sucks ...
19:52-!-Garda [] has joined #debian
19:52<Maulkin>3Mbit = 384KB/s max
19:52<bluebaffoon>Maulkin : point well taken
19:52<ed__>I thought that 1mbps == 1024 kbps. I mean, they stand for megabyte per second and kilobyte per second, right?
19:52<Maulkin>1Mbit = 128KB/sec max
19:52<Maulkin>Now, you can drop that a little depending on how you connect
19:52<bluebaffoon>ed no .....
19:52<defi0n>ed__: technically
19:52<defi0n>but mb/s is different than mbps
19:52<Maulkin>And that's before you hit line quality
19:53<bluebaffoon>3.0 Mbps = 3,000,000 bits divide that by 8000 to get KB/s
19:53<ed__>Oh aye.
19:53<defi0n>but an easy way to figure it out is
19:53<ed__>So it's Megabits per second?
19:53<Maulkin>1 byte = 8 bit.
19:53<defi0n>just assume 1mbps = 100kb/s
19:53<defi0n>and then add a little bit more
19:54<defi0n>1mb/s = 10mbps
19:54-!-dpalacio [~david@] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]

19:55<Maulkin>Depending on who's feeling lucky today

19:55<Maulkin>defi0n: anyone who makes your internet connection work.

19:55<user01>cable internet and dsl marketers apparently
19:55<defi0n>yeah yeah
19:55<ed__>Hmm, surely if 1 mbps == 125 kb.s, 10 mbps == 1250kb/s?
19:55<defi0n>im on a 10mbit line anyhow
19:56<Maulkin>And isps, and people who run servers, or anyone to do with networks or telecoms...

20:02*Maulkin wasn't.
20:02<Tarcas>defi0n, Terrabit is technically possible over fiber. Only limitation there is how fast you can switch you laser. If you use WDM you can use multiple lasers )of different colors) to multiply by the speed of each.
20:02<defi0n>is only my root servers speed lol
20:02<streuner>well, there are some countries which have very welll i-net connections, but not big countries...

20:03<user01>i think europe gets it cheaper and better because more people live in apartment buildings where as everyone is spread out home residential in the states
20:03<Tarcas>I think has an OC3, but that's a foggy memory.

20:04<user01>australia had pretty bad service in the coast was good
20:04<bluebaffoon>is Reiser Fs faster and better than ext3 ? I just switched to it
20:05<defi0n>what about....hmmm, .pt?
20:05<dpkg>Journaling filesystems in a nutshell: <peterS> fast but dangerous: reiserfs. medium-speed but reliable: ext3. fast, mostly reliable, and *huge*: xfs. slow, probably reliable: jfs. unknown, probably buggy: reiser4. If you have to ask, use ext3, or see
20:05<defi0n>and what country is .ee?
20:05<Maulkin>ed__: In any case, reading the NM guide helps you work out why you're doing various options. If you need basic help in packaging stuff, #debian-mentors is probably best, though it's quite a bit quieter :)
20:05<defi0n>no thats .ie...
20:05<user01>ie is ireland i think
20:05<Maulkin>bluebaffoon: It's hard to say better.

22:17<jesse-ha>I'm trying to run a program from the command line and I get this error message: Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display:
22:18<dondelelcaro>that's because for whatever reason, DISPLAY isn't set to a valid X server that you can connect to.

22:19<DaCapn>if you guys change to a new mobo+cpu (same architecture) do you usually do a fresh install or do you just swap everything else in and call it good?

22:20<zl2tod>jesse-ha, that often happens when you try an run a program that needs X from a root window, use 'sudo command' from an xterm and it might work
22:21<jesse-ha>i dont think i have whatever that is installed..

23:42<jesse-ha>k so i installed the x-windowing-system yet when i try to run a certain program I get the error: "Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display:"
23:42<jesse-ha>Anyone have any ideas?
23:42<gesuto>I have a problem with NFS. I have succesfully mounted a directory before nut I can not figure out what would make every file in it look like this:
23:42<gesuto>?--------- ? ? ? ? ? /home/backup/
23:43-!-miksuh [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
23:43<dli>jesse-ha, are you running a wm or gnome/kde?
23:44<gesuto>fstab: server:/home/username /home/backup nfs user,rw,noauto,exec,suid,nodev 0 0
23:44<dli>jesse-ha, how did you install x-window, or tell me what you are running, or at least, how do you run the program, when it fails with the error message
23:45-!-`villain` [~villain@] has quit [Quit: ðÏËÉÄÁÀ]

23:47<dli>jesse-ha, you didn't provide any info useful
23:47<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

23:50<jesse-ha>My system is a base netinst install that boots to a command line. I have the x-windowing-system installed that I apparently need for a program called vmware player. However when i try to run the program I get the error "Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display:" Does this explain better?
23:50-!-jello [] has quit [Quit: leaving]
23:52<defi0n>try "dpkg xorg-reconfigure xserver-xorg"
23:52<zl2tod>jesse-ha, you need xwindows to be actually running. Once again, which program are you trying to run ?

23:53<jesse-ha>"...need for a program called vmware player. However when i..." -- vmware player

23:53<defi0n>try ctrl-alt-backspace
23:54<defi0n>it resets x11 window system
23:54<defi0n>or find the x11 executable, and sudo ./X11
23:54<defi0n>i think its /bin/x11 or something
23:55<defi0n>i have had the same issue
23:55<defi0n>and configuring, and then opening x11 manually did the trick
23:55<defi0n>twas when i used Ubuntu
