00:07<tmg1|chthulhu>I'm getting kernel oopses every couple of minutes, and pretty much all my applications, including dpkg are crashing... as far as I know I'm running mostly stable with a few things from testing; is there anything I can do to troubleshoot this?
00:09<dpkg>memtest is, like, . Also check out, or check out the packages memtest86 and memtest86+, or "aptitude install memtest86+" and read /usr/share/doc/memtest86+, or for cpu temperature testing use the cpuburn package, or ask me about <cpuburn>

01:19<minipie>if im running in a X server when it panics, is there any way at all to get the information that would normally be printed to a tty?
01:20<minipie>is there a configuration option that would make it dump to the disk?
01:21<amphi>once it panics it would not write to the disk, I don't think - too dangerous
01:22<minipie>what about the serial port? could i get it to send it to a different computer?

03:12<chandu_>Nemoder, I dont want to install it
03:13<chandu_>Nemoder, I have the kernel source ..I have placed this new driver source into the drivers/scsi folder
03:13<chandu_>Nemoder, Now I want to build the kernel ,
03:13<chandu_>Nemoder, For that I am doing "make menuconfig"
03:13<Nemoder>chandu_: the documentation should tell you how to compile it properly
03:13<chandu_>Nemoder, for creating .config file

03:15<Nemoder>I don't think drivers that are not shipped with the kernel will show up there
03:15<chandu_>Nemoder, oh
03:16<Nemoder>perhaps it is possible to add it but I don't know how

06:04<dpkg>Please don't immediately repeat your question if no one answers it. If no one answers, that means that either no one knows the answer to your question, no one is willing to answer it, or you haven't provided enough information. Ask me about <ask> or <sicco> if you need help phrasing your question. If you don't get an answer here, go ahead and try asking your question on
06:07<kapil>c: each time dpkg wants to change or replace a conffile that you edited it will prompt you. perhaps this answers your question.
06:07<kapil>c: this only holds for system conffiles of course.
06:08-!-cahoot [~radix@] has joined #debian
06:08<c>great - I need to reinstall everything on my server and was recommended to use dist-upgrade instead as its a fairly old server. but i need to make sure that when the packages re-install that all my config settings fro everything are maintained
06:09<kapil>c: make a backup first and always. best of luck.
06:10-!-freealan [] has quit [Quit: leaving]
06:10<c>a backup of my config files in /etc?
06:10<kapil>c: note that preserving some conffiles *could* cause the newer programs to work improperly. the files will be kept with names like *.dpkg-{new,dist,old}.
06:11<padski>can't remember the name ... auto-packager does it at install time ?

06:18-!-vigneswari [~vigneswar@] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
06:19<kapil>c: after completing the upgrade you must go through your conffiles (find /etc -name '*.dpkg-*' or some such) and clean up as appropriate.
06:19<kapil>c: it is as automatic as it can be given that new versions of software has new bugs (which are also sometimes called features :) )
06:21<kapil>c: on the whole it works quite well. have done an upgrade too many times to count and have not suffered any serious problems.

06:23<c>so i shouldn't have to worry too much then ;-)

06:24<kapil>c: that's about it.
06:25<kapil>c: and the backup of /etc is useful in case you remove a *.dpkg-old too soon and discover a problem later.

06:28<c>out of interest, is there a way to reinstall the same versions of all the packages i have instead of updating to the latest versions?
06:29<c>...without having to go through and do each one individually
06:30-!-angasule [~angasule@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
06:30<kapil>c: why do you want to re-install the same versions. very confusing!
06:32<c>well the server works nicely with all the versions i have at the moment - instead of risk trouble of things not working when i update, can i re-install the current versions of all packages. oh the reason is due to a hacked server so i need to re-install all packages to ensure its not been compromised
06:33<dpkg>methinks reinstall is aptitude reinstall '~i' ; or COLUMNS=200 dpkg -l | awk '/^[hi]i/{print $2}' | xargs apt-get -y --reinstall install, or dpkg --get-selections > my_packages.txt , then later, dpkg --set-selections < my_packages.txt && apt-get install . See also <aptitude clone>.
06:33<kapil>c: ok. your problem is different from the one i thought. so you want to re-install each and every one of the packages on your system? look at the answer given by dpkg.
06:34-!-Graveworm [] has joined #debian
06:34<kapil>thx sep.
06:34<c>ah ok
06:35<c> that WILL just reinstall the current versions of all my packages? this the best precaution to take since the server has been hacked?
06:35-!-padski [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
06:36<Graveworm>Hi all! Just a short question. Where does kde store its file associations for konqueror (submenu)? Not the user specific settings (action) but the global setting?
06:36-!-_Dave2_ is now known as Dave2
06:40<kapil>c: cant really give a definite answer. depends on the extent of the take-over. if you believe that the *only* files changed are those installed by default on the system then what you are doing may be enough. but the root-kit and stuff could be anywhere ...
06:42<c>well as far as i could tell the server was only hacked and used for ssh password cracking - as far as i know, so i figured the best precaution would be to reinstall all my current packages, and tighten my ssh security etc
06:42<kapil>c: if you have a spare machine then try to clone your machine and then copy over the config files one by one, checking each one. no short cuts unfortunately :-(
06:42<kapil>!aptitude clone
06:42<dpkg>To clone a Debian machine using aptitude (or install your favorite packages) use aptitude search -F '%100p' '~i!~M' > package_list; on the reference machine; xargs aptitude --schedule-only install < package_list; aptitude install; on the other machine. See also <reinstall>.

06:51<c>thanks. well i'm gonna try and see what happens!
06:51<kapil>c: we did face a similar situation a long time ago and did the re-install. as soon as we could replace the server by cloning we did that.
06:52<c>yea. ideally i cant spend much time on this and need to keep the server as operational as possible the whole time as it is also the email and web server for a media company
06:53<kapil>c: i.e. first the re-install as a temporary measure and later the clone.
06:53<c>ok. sounds like a good plan. i dont know how i will cone the server tho without another to clone it to?
06:54<c>i have just made backups of the home, var and etc folders so all the information is maintained if anything goes wrong!

09:57<padski>is there a 4G file size limit on ext3 ?
09:57<Gathond>padski: no
09:57<Gathond>padski: at least not on recent versions, older ext2 filesystems might have one
09:58<Gathond>or ext2 filesystems upgraded to ext3
09:58<themill>Abiectum: Please stick to the channel and ask your questions here. /msg bots not people
09:58<Gathond>although I would expect that limit to be at 2G not 4 G
09:58<DTE>is there anybody using amd64? i need to see if just my installation is wrong

10:01<padski>was there not a time when it was an int ?
10:01<Gathond>padski: well more to the point a 32 bit int:)
10:01<padski>yeah. what about mysql then ?
10:01<padski>any 32-bit ints I should know about there ?
10:01<Gathond>padski: and yes, I'm pretty sure there was a 2 GB limit once, although that might not have been the filesystem itself but the posix interface
10:02<Gathond>padski: I would expect mysql to keep the DB in several files as it grows
10:02<Gathond>so any one file is probably below 2 GB
10:02<padski>but for one of those files, just say ;-)
10:02<Gathond>or at least below what the filesystem can use
10:03<Gathond>but I haven't used mysql for years, ever since I got mad at their lack of input validation
10:03<Gathond>but I would expect it to keep a 32 GB database as 4-16 different files on the filesystem

10:12<rojo>Anyone ever successfully use the aclexec directive in hosts.allow? I can't get it to deny any connections, even if I have "sshd : ALL : aclexec /path/to/script-that-only-exits-1."

13:22<dpkg>To reconfigure your X server, run dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg as root. If you're not using Xorg (sarge or earlier), dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86, and ask me about <xmd5sum> if you've changed XF86Config-4 yourself.

14:56<suiside>IRCFrEAK: pretty much, do note though that testing is called testing for a reason, if you don't know what you're doing you propably just want to stick with stable, changing back isn't as simple

18:53<mzhang>witte yes
18:54<witte>mzhang: apt-get clean will only look in /var/cache/apt/archives and remove those

18:56<witte>monra: what is gprof, and i cant find any package which has gnom.out, although sendip has gnome.out.gz (don't know if this is related)
18:57<monra>witte: i think bnutils(or something similar) has the gprof program in it. it's program for checking times in a program, times in functions and so

19:05<mzhang>is there any way to use rsync to compare files between two machines, see which has different time stamps (but do nothing)?
19:05<witte>mzhang: you could use unison (which uses rsync)

19:34<javo>i.e. aptitude remove gnome-core?
19:34<witte>javo; sorry deborphan
19:34<javo>witthe: thanks i'll try
19:37<witte>javo: it will just list the excess files, you can deinstall them using apt-get remove `deborphan`
19:38<dkr>use aptitude, it is better about getting rid of auto-installed stuff due to dependencies
