00:05<redflag>wahey, reported
00:06-!-anarko__ [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:06<acutedeath>i've decided to leave the my netgear card in the windows computer where it should be, and buy a new card in the morning. It seems a little bit funny to buy something for a PCI standard though, if I can even find one
00:08-!-charlie [] has joined #debian
00:08-!-charlie [] has quit []
00:10<Tarcas>Try finding one for an ISA standard. :-P
00:10<gsimmons>acutedeath: They exist. A device containing a Ralink or Atheros chipset is generally well-supported.
00:12-!-Zygo [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:12<acutedeath>cool. In other news, I booted, and left the room for about 20 min, now my monitor shows nothing and I can't wake it. It should have a login screen, but nothing. Hard reset seems like my only option. what gives?

00:17<acutedeath>Blank screen only. I had a flashing cursor in the upper left, but that was all. Another hard reset later, monitor stays yellow-light(no signal)

00:20<acutedeath>fucking thing blew up
00:20<neo_>Is that card still in the system?
00:21<acutedeath>no, it's back in the box I'm using. Im using it to send this message
00:21-!-alec [] has quit [Quit: leaving]
00:21<kop>acutedeath : Been careful to blow out all the dust bunnies?
00:21<neo_>Stupid question: You had the power cord disconnect when you put the card in and took it out?
00:22<neo_>Video Card or Onboard?
00:22<acutedeath>wiggled all the wires and got it back for a moment,
00:22<acutedeath>but then it went haywire onscreen
00:22<acutedeath>yeah, built-in video
00:22<neo_>What brand computer?
00:22<kop>acutedeath : What sort of wires? (I've had luck cleaning things like pci contacts with a soft eraser.)
00:23<acutedeath>another hard reset later and I got it booted again.
00:23<neo_>Is it running now?

00:55-!-hax_ is now known as hax
00:55-!-bernardo [~bernardo@] has joined #debian
00:55<bernardo>why is a lot of packages marked in apt as packages that can be removed with apt-get autoremove??
00:56-!-dave__ [] has joined #debian
00:57-!-dave__ [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:57<kop>bernardo : I don't see an autoremove in my "man apt-get". What release are you running?
00:57<bernardo>kop: of apt?
00:58<kop>bernardo : Of debian.
00:58<bernardo>kop: lenny
00:59-!-mode/#debian [+l 320] by debhelper
00:59<bernardo>kop: and you??
00:59<kop>bernardo : That'd explain it then. Dunno. I hear that aptitude auto-stuff is now in apt-get in lenny. It would mean that the packages have no dependences on anything that you'd explicitly asked to install. They are all packages installed to support something you've since removed.
00:59<kop>bernardo : etch, stable.
00:59<bernardo>kop: oh....i see
01:00<bernardo>kop: thanks a lot for the tip
01:00-!-tlaza [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
01:00<kop>bernardo : It's a guess.
01:00<bernardo>kop: so i guess i csn safely remove that stuff right?
01:01<kop>bernardo : I'd think it'd remove them for you if you did an "upgrade" or maybe "dist-upgrade". You could run deborphan and see what is says and compare to be safe.
01:01-!-rapiddemon [] has joined #debian
01:01-!-rapiddemon [] has quit []
01:01<bernardo>kop: what is deborphan??
01:02<kop>bernardo : I transitioned from apt-get to aptitude and did a bunch of "unmarkauto" to tell it the things I want explicitly.
01:02<bernardo>kop: oh...
01:02<kop>bernardo : A package. It says what packages you've got that nothing depends on. So, either you asked for them and want them or they're leftover from uninstalling something else that needed them.
01:03<bernardo>kop: hold a minute
01:03<bernardo>kop: check that out
01:04<bernardo>kop: it wants to remove pretty major stuff.....
01:06<bernardo>kop: you see?
01:06<kop>bernardo : Well, if you don't use them then they can go away. They'll come back if you install something that needs them. Of course you are running lenny, so things can be broken....
01:07<bernardo>kop: but like wpasupplicant (that is on the list), I'm using it for my wireless connection!
01:07<kop>bernardo : You could ask again later and get a second opinion.
01:07<kop>bernardo : Then tell apt that you want to mark it "not automatically installed".
01:07<bernardo>kop: do you know how?
01:08<kop>bernardo : aptitude unmarkauto wpasupplicant But, some stuff gets replaced by new stuff. Maybe it's a virtual package no longer needed. (I've no clue, just saying.)
01:08<dpkg>it has been said that aptitude is "the preferred program for package management from console. aptitude supports most command line operations of apt-get and has proven to be better at dependency resolution than apt-get." (4.0 Release Notes). A mostly drop-in replacement for apt-get. Don't mix use of apt-get and aptitude. See <why aptitude> <why not aptitude> <aptitude-fu>
01:09<bernardo>kop: ok...thanks, i will look up for something on the net, gotta go, bye

01:17-!-dani_ [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
01:17<kcynice>i want to know,if iocharset option is only valid for ms fs in mount command or not?
01:19-!-dani [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
01:19-!-miksuh [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
01:19<kop>kcynice : man mount is the place to look, I think.
01:19-!-visik7 [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
01:20<DaCapn>so, on my dual-head setup, it looks like I can only get one of the heads to show up, except when they have both been off for a long period of time, then when I switch to one of the CLIs (ctrl+alt+f{1,2,3,4,5,6}) and back then the head goes blank again, anyone ahve any clue what that could be about?
01:21<kcynice>kop: i use the same command to mount a vfat partion and a ntfs partion.but the ntfs partion only can access in terminal.why and how to fix?
01:22<DaCapn>this even happens when the displays are set to be clones of one another, it's not just that my twinview settings are bad. And it looks all proper when they do work after being off for a long period of time
01:22-!-miksuh [] has joined #debian
01:22<kop>kcynice : (Better off asking everybody, not just me.) It's a permisson problem, is my guess. As root in a terminal you have permission but your user does not have permission. _maybe_ there's a mount option, but my guess is that you need to add your regular user to some group or another. I dunno. I know little about ntfs.
01:22-!-mikes [~mikes@] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
01:23<kop>DaCapn : Could, possibly, be a hardware problem. Heat related.
01:25<DaCapn>it is not a heat related issue. Neither the monitors nor the cables have problems. I'm trying to figure out if it's a problem with the card though. It didn't used to have this problem until after I tripped a breaker
01:25-!-ch1ch4j0 [~xchat@] has joined #debian
01:26<DaCapn>though I don't see why that would damage the video card, since I am using a surge protector and the video card is hooked up to a power supply (which presumably has similar protection) to that surge protector
01:27-!-ch1ch4j0 [~xchat@] has left #debian []
01:27<kop>DaCapn : If you suspect hardware blow it down throughly with a can of air. Also, if you power supply is wonky that can affect all sorts of stuff.

Some d00d I know went and decided to use Synaptic to install a bunch of mods for Webmin and Usermin on my system and now I cant get nothing else to install because this crap is hanging and getting errors. My first step to fix it was to block his IP and Change the Password... Now how do I get this stuff out of the 'que'?

03:50<dpkg>somebody said webmin was a lame web-based interface for unsafe system administration for Unix. Check it out at Remember, dondelelcaro *hates* webmin. "i'd rather sit on the floor shoving table knives into live electrical outlets than run webmin on an exposed server." See about the removal. Don't use their .debs, they are of extremely poor quality.

04:06<devil>neo_: thought so
04:06<imperia>•fxiny• looks like i have removed gdm somehow.
04:06<devil>neo_: either webmin is not installed or due to its extreme cappiness not installed where dpkg would expect it
04:07<neo_>dpkg --purge webmin works
04:07<devil>neo_: heh, strange enough

04:11<devil>neo_: its a vicious trap ;)
04:11<fxiny>imperia: the easiest way to switch from gnome/kde/fluxbox is by using gdm/kdm . playing with echo 'exec startwhatever' >> ~/.xsession ; startx could be annoing in a multi wm box

04:12<neo_>ROFL devil you think so?
04:12<imperia>•fxiny• don't have such file
04:13<imperia>•fxiny• should i do apt-get install gdm?
04:13<devil>neo_: well, from what i see you will have to dig deeper intpo dpkg manualy which is not a good idea at all
04:13<fxiny>imperia: how do you log into gnome ? what is in /etc/X11/default-display-manager
04:13<imperia>•fxiny• startx

So is it a bug or a feature and can somone else confirm it ? Since it looks stupid it might be a bug , but

12:11<sheldonh>Tarcas: ECC isn't about RAM fatalities, it's about coping with bit flips caused by, for example, cosmic rays

12:12<Tarcas>user01: Depends on how many drives you need. I was wanting 4 with room to grow (and hoping to use the onboard RAID, but that didn't work out.) You can always go with something lower if you like.
12:13<sheldonh>Tarcas: i suppose it depends on what you're storing. things like video, pictures and audio probably cope well with a bit of corruption
12:13<sheldonh>Tarcas: keep in mind that backups of a fileserver don't save you from parity errors in non-ecc ram -- once what's on disk is corrupt, the corruption bleeds into your backups :)

13:06<pumpkin0>fxiny: well... most people using linux are male. And males usually understand the car analogies. OK, the VW vs GM thing was a bit off.
13:06<sheldonh>jmeyer: at least msttcorefonts

13:13<sheldonh>norbert_: for directories, it's usually the number of subdirectories plus two
13:14<norbert_>why the plus two, because of . and ..?
13:14<sheldonh>norbert_: because of the directory itself and "."
13:14<sheldonh>norbert_: for files, it's one more than the number of hardlinks that refer to this file (one more because this file is one of them)
13:15<norbert_>so, the count increases for files when symbolic links increase?
13:15<bremner>bouke: can you tell me the precise error message from mount?
13:15<bremner>bouke: and the precise command you typed?
13:16<pumpkin0>norbert_: hard links, not symbolic.
13:16<norbert_>okay - it was always there when I used -l, but I never noticed it ;-) thanks for the information; learn something every day
13:16<sheldonh>norbert_: no, not symbolic links, they're distinct objects. hardlinks are names for the _same_ object

13:50<pequatre>hi. i'm using an old dell optiplex with a 3c905C ethernet card and Debian 4.0. I'd like to know if or when the following patch is applied: . How can i tell if the patch has been merged into the kernel, and if the one i'm using includes it ? thank you.
13:51<sheldonh>fxiny: i don't get why you keep talking about etch. the bug's in sid, right?
13:51<DaCapn>can anyone say what the real difference is between the free nvidia driver and the proprietary nvidia driver in terms of operation. People seem to just say "I recommend you use the proprietary driver" and nothing else
13:51<fxiny>sheldonh: yes . but because to get more then 5 etch tabs you must recompile i've checked etch sources for the same bug . sid has a 15 tabs limit
13:52<sheldonh>matze: perhaps if you provided some detail, someone would be able to help
13:52<matze>sheldonh: what do you need to know?
13:52<fxiny>sheldonh: i wanted more .so i did my google and i found that url . the day after i came in chan telling this story
13:52<matze>sheldonh: im running debian etch with 2.6.18-5-686 (smp)
13:52<Franki>fxiny, sheldonh: thanks for the bug fixes on mrxvt. But my initial question remains unanswered. which automake do I have to install for mrxvt?
13:52<sheldonh>DaCapn: the free driver doesn't do direct rendering, so it's 3d acceleration sucks. so for opengl, the proprietary driver helps
13:53<sheldonh>matze: google for: smart questions
13:54<sheldonh>matze: a good way to reframe "it doesn't work" is "i'm doing W with program X, i expect to see Y but instead i see Z"
13:55<matze>so i try to run my webcam with kopete. lsusb tells me: Philips PCVC675K WebCam [pwc].

15:07<bremner>sco50000: we know

15:07<bremner>sco50000: we are on our way to your house :-)
15:07<fxiny>sco ? :P
15:07<Lynoure>sco50000: fresh install? But you have installed sudo and configured it?
15:07<Supaplex>sco50000: visudo is how you edit the sudoers file. (it respects $EDITOR)
15:08<sco50000>i never specifically installed sudo, it was already there
15:08<sco50000>just not configured
15:08<Supaplex>!info sudo etch

15:08<Supaplex>well something you installed brought it in. 'is optional'
15:09<Lynoure>sco50000: that explain is :) scott is not in /etc/sudoers. As sco50000 said, visudo is the way to go
15:10<sco50000>i'm not sure what to add in visudo
15:10<sco50000>the man page was confusing
15:12-!-neo__ [] has joined #debian
15:13<dpkg>sudoers is, like, To give your user the ability to run arbitrary commands as root with sudo, add a line like this to /etc/sudoers: 'user ALL=(ALL) ALL' (no quotes, replacing user with your username).
15:14-!-makke [] has joined #debian
15:15<bremner>I would also add: Defaults env_reset,rootpw
15:15<bremner>but that makes the sudo password the root password, which some people think is stupid
15:16-!-lloeki [] has quit [Quit: Ex-Chat]
15:16<sco50000>if you're gonna do something as root, it makes sense that it asks you for the root password

15:28<Nemoder>sheldonh: thanks
15:29<Supaplex>greetings fine travler
15:29<debbbb>for a intel dual core 2310, should i choose debian4.0 i386 debian4.0amd64?
15:29<sheldonh>Nemoder: it may have been overtaken by beast
15:29<debbbb>i have not find answer in google
15:29<dpkg>i guess amd64 is See and the #debian-amd64 IRC channel, or, now official, will be a supported arch on Etch, or a generic name. It also supports xeon etc, see Consider using debian/i386 if you do not have a good reason to use debian/amd64. For flash on amd64, ask me about <nspluginwrapper>
15:30<debbbb>thx :)
15:30<debbbb>so i will need debian/amd64 if i do hard calcul computing in a research lab for example ?
15:31<debbbb>and for madwifi ? does amd64 make trouble ?
15:31<Supaplex>debbbb: sure. I get better performance that way (and my cpu is amd64)
15:31<Supaplex>!tell debbbb -about madwifi
15:31<lupine_85>debbbb: for a desktop, only if you have real need of the benefits of amd64
15:31<lupine_85>e.g. a bunchload of ram
15:32<Supaplex>my /proc/cpuinfo tends to suggest I get more bogomips in amd64 vs x86
15:32<debbbb>thx very very

15:34<sco50000>i just did, it's at /usr/sbin/ndiswrapper
15:34<Supaplex>that's because /usr/sbin/ is not in your $PATH
15:34<sco50000>ok, thanks for explaining

15:37<Supaplex>did you install it correctly?
15:37<dpkg>i guess ndiswrapper is a way to wrap Windows drivers so that they can be used on Linux (x86 or x86-64 only). If there is a Linux driver for your card, first consider that instead; if there isn't, ask me about <ndiswrapper one-liner> to set up NDISwrapper. #ndiswrapper @

18:23<sco50000>when i use the add/remove programs or a package manager, when i try to remove some KDE apps, it tells me it will automatically remove kde, kde-devel, and a few others like that. will this actually remove KDE?
18:24-!-hazard3 [] has joined #debian
18:24<themill>sco50000: no, these are metapackages just to make it easier to install all of kde.
18:25<themill>!install kde
18:25<dpkg>The metapackage 'kde' installs tons of stuff (almost the full KDE), 'kde-core' only the core, kdebase is the smallest. To install KDE instead of GNOME during Debian installation if you're not installing from the KDE CD, supply "tasks=standard, kde-desktop" at d-i's boot prompt. For more details, see
18:25<themill>sco50000: ^^ (and the reverse is true for uninstalling things)
18:25<sco50000>but if i remove the kde package, kde remains intact?
18:26<themill>sco50000: yes. It's fine to do that. If, in a later version of Debian, the KDE team introduces a new set of KDE packages you just won't get the automatically, that's all.

19:51<themill>snogglethorpe: I've seen it myself on a number of boxes and others have come here with the same problem -- moving to aptitude (or the new apt-get) can generate a large list of autoremoves.

19:51<themill>snogglethorpe: I use aptitude exclusively and recommend that others do the same.
19:52<kop>themill, snogglethorpe : Isn't there something on the apt-get/aptitude transition in the etch release notes which mention the "auto" feature and how to transition?

20:39<norbert_>sorry, had to say that ;-) that did the trick
20:39<vook>norbert_: what was it?
20:39<norbert_>I had to comment out (#geniusvp2) in /etc/sane.d/dll.d/libsane-extras
20:39<norbert_>and I found that out by running # SANE_DEBUG_DLL=255 xsane
20:40<norbert_>it got stuck at trying to initialize/find that geniusvp2 thing
20:40<vook>well done sir

20:41<norbert_>yep, another problem fixed, and learned something along the way
20:41<kop>norbert_ : Better file a bug report. If you've done something that will bite you later you'll probably get hit with t cluestick that way.

21:27<acutedeath>Is there any reason that an executable file that I can clearly see will not execute? I'm getting command not found from every shell I have, but I can see the damn thing is my working directory.
21:27<acutedeath>Hi Ethaniel
21:27-!-nicholas [] has joined #debian
21:27<saratogacx>Do you get the same thing if you do ./ExeName ?
21:27-!-vook [] has joined #debian
21:27<acutedeath>I will try
21:28<acutedeath>well I'll be damned. That worked, thank you. I was about to started ripping things
21:28<acutedeath>Is that how things normally operate?
21:29<saratogacx>as long as I've been using it.
21:29<Ethaniel>I recently installed Debian on one of my PCs, and since I have a mind tainted with Windows, I'll ask some questions that probably will be very stupid to you, so, please be patient.
21:29<acutedeath>I've never used an OS that worked that way, I've mostly used SunOS
21:29<acutedeath>as far as Unix types go
21:30<saratogacx>This should be prtty close.. what's your questin?
21:30<lupine_85>acutedeath: the executable wan't in your $PATH :p
21:30<Ethaniel>I installed IceWM a few minutes ago, but every time I try to run it, I get this thing:
21:30<acutedeath>should I have "." in my $PATH ? or is that stupid?
21:30<Ethaniel>"X must be running and $DISPLAY set"
21:31<Ethaniel>Tried "startx", but didn't worked.
21:31<vook>acutedeath: no!
21:31<lupine_85>It's a potential security risk
21:31<saratogacx>You get used to using ./
21:31<vook>acutedeath: if you need to run something not in your path, just use ./program
21:32<acutedeath>Oh. I've always just compiled my toy, and then typed the name of the executable to run. This ./program thing seems foreign, but I guess I will have to adapt
21:32<saratogacx>Ethaniel, do you have X running? or are you stuck in console land?
21:32-!-killuminati [sortadi@] has joined #debian

21:33<vook>Ethaniel: you need to update your alternatives for icewm to be default. You can create a .dmrc, or load xinit, then run 'icewm &'
21:33<lupine_85>Ethaniel: IceWM requires X to run
21:34<Ethaniel>So X is not present? How can that be? Maybe I made a mistake installing Debian......
21:34<saratogacx>What errors are you getting when you run startx ?
21:34<vook>Ethaniel: X is present, but icewm doesn't load it, it runs on top of X

21:35-!-flami [] has joined #debian
21:35<saratogacx>When you did you install did you select the desktop enviroment package?
21:36<Ethaniel>I thought it would install KDE and GNOME with that.
21:36<saratogacx>only Gnome
21:37<Ethaniel>So Gnome is necessary to run IceWM then?
21:37<vook>Ethaniel: here's a tip: If you just installed something, and you don't know how to run it - install good ol' midnight commander (aptitude install mc) - then run mc - browse to the /var/cache/apt/archives directory, and open the .deb file for the package you just installed, browse around until you find a bin directory (usually usr/bin), the files located there give a clue as to what command to run.
21:37<Ethaniel>(taking notes...)
21:37<vook>you shouldn't need gnome.
21:38-!-fl4mi [] has joined #debian
21:38<saratogacx>Gnome isn't needed but you do need X. the desktop package gives you that. You can still install X from where you're at
21:38<lupine_85>vook: ever heard of apt-file ?
21:38<lupine_85>trust me, it's much easier than your method
21:38<lupine_85>even dpkg -L
21:38<Ethaniel>apt-get and aptitude.
21:38<TBBle>Or even dpkg -L 'packagename' | grep 'bin'
21:38<vook>lupine_85: I'll check it out :) I love mc though.
21:38<lupine_85>fail :p
21:38<saratogacx>you can try apt-get install xorg and that should get you closer to your goal of IceWM goodness
21:39<TBBle>Unless you're looking at bind, in which case grep 'bin' will be somewhat more exuberant than intended.
21:39<lupine_85>I bet you're using netcat for IRC too, aren't you? ;)
21:39<Ethaniel>Okay, I'll try that now. The computer is next to me.
21:39<vook>lupine_85: no, irssi
21:40<saratogacx>sigh.. I feel noobish now.. I'm using xchat on my tablet
21:40<Ethaniel>Okay, it's downloading. Looks scary.
21:40<saratogacx>x. is. big
21:40<vook>lupine_85: the #debian guidelines page doesn't say I can't confuse people with ancient curses apps :) Really though - I love mc
21:41<lupine_85>it's just such a convoluted way of doing it
21:42<vook>I believe you ;)
21:42<acutedeath>Has anyone here used "rt2x00 project" drivers for a wireless adapter of any kind? I've tried to get them going for hours, but I'm fairly lost. I fear they may be a bit too obscure to get help here.
21:42<lupine_85>acutedeath: I've used them extensively
21:42<lupine_85>and they're the card type that rms recommends you use, so hardly obscure ;)
21:42<lupine_85>do you know what chipset your card is?
21:43<sco50000>is there any way i can decode a .wma to a standard .wav?
21:43<acutedeath>oh, awesome
21:43-!-xuwei [xuwei@] has joined #debian
21:43<acutedeath>it's rt2500
21:43<acutedeath>a linksys wmp54g to be specific
21:43<saratogacx>sorry I use an intel 2100 (ipw2100)
21:43-!-flami [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
21:43<lupine_85>well, you can either use the 'legacy' rt2500 driver for that, or the 'next-generation' (but rather buggy, still) rt2x00 driver
21:44<lupine_85>they're in rt2x00-source and rt2x00-source, respectively
21:44<Nemoder>sco50000: you could probably do that with mencoder
21:44<lupine_85>just m-a a-i the appropriate one
21:45<lupine_85>I would recommend trying rt2x00 first; and if that doesn't work well enough, you can fall back to rt2500
21:45<sco50000>Nemoder: i can't find a mencoder package
21:45<Nemoder>sco50000: it's part of mplayer, you would need to enable debian-multimedia repo
21:45<acutedeath>oh, there's a "rt2x00-source" literally? I tried the "rt2500-source" package.
21:46<lupine_85>they both should exist
21:46<acutedeath>after "module-assistant auto-install rt2500-source" I did an "ifconfig -a" but my device doesn't show up
21:46<lupine_85>you need to depmod -a; then modprobe rt2500
21:47<lupine_85>you should then have an ra0 interface
21:47<acutedeath>hmm, I don't know those commands, I will check it out
21:48<lupine_85>you literally type: depmod -a (which recalculates kernel module dependencies for you); then modprobe rt2500 (which loads the rt2500 kernel module)
21:48<acutedeath>I tried to follow these instructions:
21:48<lupine_85>or you could reboot to get it loaded in automatically, but that's pretty pointless

21:51<Ethaniel>Well, I have a graphic environment now.
21:51<Ethaniel>Looks a lot like Damn Small Linux.
21:51<Ethaniel>Is that X or IceWM?
21:52<lupine_85>X, probably
21:52<sco50000>Nemoder: thanks
21:52<lupine_85>if you get back to a terminal you can run DISPLAY=:0 <gui command here> to get an app running

21:56<Nemoder>sco50000: yes, but it can do audio too
21:56<lupine_85>acutedeath: that's RT61, not rt2500
21:56<bernardo>saratogacx: ok i will take a look thanks
21:56<lupine_85>for that, you'll want rt2x00

21:56<jagerman>Audio has been part of video for several decades now!
21:56<acutedeath>no wonder !
21:57<Nemoder>sco50000: something like mplayer media.file -ao pcm:file=out.wav
21:57<acutedeath>yes my lspci clearly says rt2561/rt61
21:57<lupine_85>so m-a a-i rt2x00-source

22:26<lupine_85>well, the Filename: in apt-cache show helps a lot
22:26<lupine_85>just append that to a valid debian mirror and you're ready to go
22:26<Ethaniel>Okay, Abiword is working. It's nice when things work.
22:26<acutedeath>i couldn't find it on the package search so I don't know if it has dependencies that I need to obtain
22:27<acutedeath>but here goes
22:27<lupine_85>it just contains a bunch of binary files
22:27<acutedeath>was my hope
22:27<lupine_85>no Depends:, it Suggests: initramfs-tools, linux-image
22:29<Ethaniel>Can X be customized? Font, size, nothing too fancy....

22:30<lupine_85>the kernel uploads it to the card at module loading
22:30<blarson>Ethaniel: font size may depend on the dpi set
22:31<lupine_85>so ifconfig wlan0 down; modprobe -r rt61pci; modprobe rt61pci
22:31<Ethaniel>It's a terribly old monitor. 640x480.

22:48<acutedeath>ah, so I tell it what its own number is, in a sense..?
22:48<Linuxian>uhh, what router,? im working with SOUND CARDS

23:03<acutedeath>i really thought so, but I set it up a long while ago, and everything went so smoothly. I don't know details. It's a netgear router, and I think it does that thing where the host is , and clients follow incrementally, but then again that could be universal for all I know.
