00:00<cdlu>discussing bugs in the bible-kjv package?
00:00<lupine_85>/who/ did the creation is the belief aspect
00:00<lupine_85>and you get islamic creationists too
00:00<ranix>what about "it's too terrifying to think this may have happened by chance"
00:00<chealer>bla, lupine_85, ranix, Requiem: I don't know how that discussion started but it's offtopic now. please move.
00:00<ranix>that's the brand I personally subscribe to
00:00<ranix>got it
00:01<lupine_85>yep, sorry
00:01<blal> has the perfect definition.
00:01<blal>a doctrine or theory holding that matter, the various forms of life, and the world were created by God out of nothing and usually in the way described in Genesis — compare evolution 4b
00:02<blal>"compare evolution 4b" lol
00:03<lupine_85>good to see #debian-offtopic getting plenty of use...
00:03<ranix>is that a goto or a jump
00:03<blal>lupine_85 : Islamic creationism uses the same "who" as Christian. :-D
00:03<lupine_85>cmp != jmp
00:03<lupine_85>at least, not if I remember my assembly
00:04<blal>I think "cmp" is "compare" (is equal) and "jmp" is "jump" (goto).
00:06*jello decides to assign an RC bug to each participants in this offtopic discussion...
00:07<jello>back to work, y'all!
00:07<blal>ranix : I could tell because you became uncomfortable when I put Christianity in the same category as Scientology in a prior discussion about Anonymous' choice of targets.
00:07<lupine_85>they're releasing 4.0r3 soon?
00:07-!-Le_Vert__ [] has joined #debian
00:07<ranix>did I miss something
00:08-!-Mahalo [] has joined #debian
00:08<blal>ranix : Nothing, I'm just multitasking.
00:08<jello>blal: you get 431699
00:08<Mahalo>Dangit...I think I have had enough today...what am I doing wrong here, guys?
00:08<Mahalo> apt-get install
00:08<Mahalo>Reading package lists... Done
00:08<Mahalo>Building dependency tree... Done
00:08<Mahalo>E: The package sun-java6-jre needs to be reinstalled, but I can't find an archive for it.
00:08-!-Mahalo was kicked from #debian by debhelper [use the paster bot or #flood]
00:09<chealer>lupine_85: yeah, but the RC bugs are rather for 5
00:09-!-leftylink [] has joined #debian
00:09<blal>jello : What's an RC?
00:09<dpkg>it has been said that rc is Release-critical, or Release Candidate
00:09<lupine_85>I can has one?
00:09-!-Alcap [] has joined #debian
00:09<lupine_85>bet you I can't fix it, though :p
00:09<jello>lupine_85: 367732
00:09<Alcap>can anyone help me installing debian?
00:09<Alcap>my graphic card is not being recongnised
00:09<lupine_85>Alcap: maybe :)
00:10<jello>chealer: 456190
00:10-!-Mahalo [] has joined #debian
00:10<jello>!tell Mahalo about flood
00:10<blal>jello : Ah. And you said "<to make up for the strain placed on Debian resources, you're being assigned bugs to test, to give back to the community>".
00:10<chealer>jello: hey, I'm the good boy.
00:10<jello>blal: well put
00:10<jello>back to work! :)
00:10<blal>chealer : You're the ringleader!
00:10<Mahalo>What happened...did I enter two sentences too close together?
00:10<jello>chealer: guilty by association
00:11<Alcap>does anyone know how to install debian with a mobitily radeon 9200?
00:11<lupine_85>Mahalo: you didn't read the topic
00:11<blal>Mahalo : Apparently.
00:11<jello>Mahalo: three or more in a short anount of time gets you booted
00:11<leftylink>Hey, question: whenever I open up Adept, it's telling me database is in use, but I'm not aware of any processes I've started that could be using it
00:11<dpkg>Please don't paste anything into the channel; use a paste site instead, like:,,, for pics. --- Also ask me: <pastebin pipe>
00:11<lupine_85>Alcap: a 9200 should Just Work(tm)
00:11<jello>leftylink: use lsof
00:11-!-Le_Vert_ [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:11<lupine_85>what's the specific error ?
00:12<Alcap>lupine_85: when I start the debian install
00:12<Alcap>the screen is all fuzzy
00:12<Alcap>it's a laptop
00:12<chealer>jello: hehe. I'm not in a good position to help with RC bugs anyway.
00:12<Mahalo>gotcha. sorry
00:12<lupine_85>humm. non-standards-compliance by the card. This is the text-mode install?
00:12<Alcap>no it isn't
00:12<jello>chealer: you can do analysis and post a patch to the BTS...
00:12<lupine_85>I'd suggest you use the text-mode installer
00:13<leftylink>jello: what's that do? I tried running it and it looks like it did nothing?
00:13<chealer>leftylink: is that a question? anyway, sounds an adept bug.
00:13<leftylink>here's the error message I get when trying to run synaptic...
00:13<leftylink>E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem.
00:13<lupine_85>download any debian installation cd you care to mention
00:13<jello>leftylink: use lsof to determine which processes are using the db file
00:13<Alcap>done it
00:13<jello>leftylink: and what happens when you do?
00:13<lupine_85>boot from it, and you should get a nice ncurses interface rather than an X interface
00:14<chealer>leftylink: ah, if you get that with synaptic too then it's not an adept bug.
00:14-!-libervisco [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:14<blal>What do I do at ?
00:14<lupine_85>if that's corrupted too, you can pass vga= parameters to the kernel at boot-time to find a mode your video card can cope with
00:14<Alcap>lupine_85: I have booted the net install
00:14<lupine_85>so you /do/ have the text-mode installer?
00:14-!-noname001 [] has joined #debian
00:14<Alcap>that's text mode?
00:15<dpkg>extra, extra, read all about it, ascii is american standard code for information interchange, or see 'chandra' for an example of a great use of ASCII characters in art, or
00:15<Alcap>text mode is like gentoo installer :D
00:15<lupine_85>big blocky text, lack of a mouse cursor, blue bits everywhere?
00:15<jello>blal: looks like it was closed...
00:15<chealer>Mahalo: so, we probably didn't get the whole output.
00:15<lupine_85>what's the native resolution of the laptop?
00:15<lupine_85>(incl. bit depth)
00:15<jello>blal: try 456837 if you like
00:16<Supaplex>my laptop has a native resolution of 0x0x0 when it's off.
00:16<leftylink>jello: Ah, I see how to use lsof now... where is the package db file usually? When I just type lsof with no args there are a lot of files
00:16<Alcap>lupine_85: I'm trying to use the default netinstall installer
00:16<Alcap>the same as ubuntu alternative
00:16<jello>leftylink: i dunno...
00:16<lupine_85>Alcap: yep. that's text mode
00:17<lupine_85>jello: that one has a fix uploaded already :/
00:17<lupine_85>I mean, \o/
00:17<Alcap>and I've fixed it xD
00:17<Alcap>just add vga=771
00:17<Alcap>and it's done
00:17<lupine_85>yep, that's the one
00:17<jello>lupine_85: try 436173
00:18<chealer>blal: don't worry, there are plenty to choose from at
00:18<lupine_85>don't forget to add it to your grub install too, asap
00:18-!-Mahalo [] has quit [Read error: Operation timed out]
00:18<Alcap>lupine_85:come again?
00:19<lupine_85>once it's all installed, edit /boot/grub/menu.lst
00:19<lupine_85>speaking of grub, does anyone know how grub2 is coming along?
00:20<Alcap>I need to boot the OS first lol
00:20<Alcap>will the X crash?
00:20<lupine_85>no, X should work fine
00:20-!-Zygo [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]

00:20<lupine_85>Although I think the mobility 9200 cards have "some problems" with 3D
00:21<lupine_85>not used ATi for yonks, though
00:21<blal>Is a yonk anything like furlong?
00:21<jello>anyone else need an RC bug? 457755 up for grabs...
00:21<lupine_85>it's a measurement of time, not distance
00:21<Alcap>lupine_85: screw 3d. I just want to be able to boot to the godamn system
00:22<Alcap>how can I add it to the menu.lst?
00:22<Alcap>because by default, debian will open gdm
00:22-!-noname001 [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
00:22<jello>add it to the kopt= line in /boot/grub/menu.lst, then run update-grub
00:23<lupine_85>Alcap: it's just something to do at some point
00:23<lupine_85>or you could just into /target before the installer unmounts it, but after it sets up grub
00:23<leftylink>whoaaa my package db is usable again

00:27<jello>fill in the rest of the url for ...
00:28<jello>Mahalo: although, you should just add non-free to your apt sources.list and install the normal way
00:28<jello>apt-get install takes a package _name_, not a url or a deb...

00:31<Mahalo>Thanks, btw...
00:31<blal>mattl : I dunno; we're all on the same team, I guess. I don't know anything about the particulars of that project, tho.
00:31<chealer>Mahalo: which package manager did you use?
00:32<jello>Mahalo: depends on the front-end, usually you scroll all the way down, and there's a button
00:32<mattl>blal: thanks. I missed that, it seems a lot of pages have moved.
00:33-!-mattl [] has left #debian []
00:33-!-kapil [] has joined #debian
00:33<Mahalo>the wget ran through the whole dl and popped up an eula...and, let me check, but I'm pretty sure I had the non-free added. lemme take a look, but this EULA hosed me earlier too...
00:34<Alcap>I think I'm going to ask for my money back

01:03-!-george [] has joined #debian
01:03<jello>Mahalo: ok, that's good. it's telling you that it needs two more packages...

01:04<Mahalo>Oh...dang...that is what I thought initially....earlier...
01:04-!-george [] has quit []
01:04<jello>Mahalo: two choices: 1) configure apt properly to use non-free; 2) download the packages manually and install using dpkg -i
01:05<jello>if you choose #1, pastebin your /etc/apt/sources.list
01:05<Mahalo>I have uncommented my sources.list lines...let me try that.
01:05<Mahalo>I'll paste it now

01:08<Mahalo>I didn't see that in the howto...
01:08<jello>it's in lenny (testing) and unstable...
01:08<jello>Mahalo: you can use the backport if you wish
01:08<Mahalo>hows that?
01:09<dpkg>rumour has it, is an unofficial repository of backports for the current stable distribution, prepared by Debian developers. Read ask me about <backports>. A sample line for your sources.list is: deb etch-backports main contrib non-free. Once you've added that line, aptitude update && aptitude install debian-backports-keyring && aptitude update

01:10<Mahalo>Right on. Will report back in afew

01:10<istoc>Hi, I'm having problems with noip2. It doesn't seem to be updating on the website anymore even though the process is running and has the right config file loading.
01:11<Mahalo>I did a dist upgrade least I thought I did...and I didn't think I was using that a uname flag?
01:11<jello>Mahalo: you're not running lenny, you only have stable in your sources.list

01:36<Alcap>I have cd to /target, and everything is there

01:38<istoc>How do I reduce a logical volume with ext3? The Howto only covers ext2 (e2fsadm -L-1G /dev/myvg/homevol) and it doesn't work.
01:39<Alcap>jello, but the grub-install file is in the directory
01:40<jello>Alcap: ok, you had me scared there for a second...
01:40<Alcap>./grub-install bla bla bla?
01:40<vultaire>istoc: personally I use gparted, maybe off of a "parted magic" cd - from the cmd line, I'm not so sure
01:41<gsimmons>istoc: Unmount the filesystem, e2fsck -f it, reduce the size the filesystem (via resize2fs), then reduce the size of the logical volume (lvresize).
01:41<istoc>Ok, thanks guys.

01:45<jello>does /etc/fstab look right?
01:45<istoc>How do I specify how big the filesystem should be with resize2fs? Should I reduce the logical volume before I resize the fs?
01:45-!-eddy [~chatzilla@] has left #debian []
01:45<Alcap>jello: yes
01:45<jello>Alcap: that is, does it list the mount point for /dev/hda3 as / ?
01:46<jello>good, now try the install-grub again
01:46<vultaire>istoc: first one, I'd have to rtfm. second, resize the fs first, definitely
01:46<gsimmons>istoc: man resize2fs. You do _not_ want to reduce the logical volume size prior to reducing the size of the filesystem within.

01:46<Mahalo>Hmmm I added the backports and rav an update but still had errors...
01:47<vultaire>istoc: gparted will handle this stuff very easily, which is why I recommended it. It really makes life easier, since resizing partitions isn't something I exactly do everyday.
01:47<jello>Mahalo: remove the non-us entries from sources.list
01:47<istoc>Ok, I wasnt sure because when I extended it, I extended the LV then resized the FS so I thought it might be the other way around if I wanted to go in reverse
01:47<jello>Mahalo: it's no longer used
01:48<Alcap>same problem as the installer
01:48<Alcap>it started

05:33<fxiny>dmg: ahhh thatìs another problem : quake3 should be in /usr/share/games
05:33<hypnotic>valdyn: yup
05:34<hypnotic>valdyn: only an old bug is back
05:34<valdyn>hypnotic: which is?
05:34<dmg>fxiny: soon as i get the nvidia drivers to work i'll try to install it
05:35<fxiny>dmg: you can install it now : wait for nvidia later
05:35<hypnotic>valdyn: normally when you boot into kde only one channel gives sound, you have to change the volume to get both channels. Since a couple of updates last week this was finally gone, but now its back
05:35<pasquale>hi, i'm trasferring a divx (700mb like) with samba to a windows xp computer. but the transfer speed is slow :( 55 minutes for a file??? (of 700 mb)
05:35<fxiny>dmg: just to make sure the installer works
05:35<dmg>fxiny: LET ME DOWNLOAD IT
05:35<fxiny>dmg: you lost it ?
05:36<valdyn>hypnotic: that should be ok once you did that manual fix followed by alsactl store, or just a reboot
05:36<dmg>fxiny: i was on Ubuntu when i tried to install it
05:36<dmg>fxiny: this is my other HD
05:37<valdyn>pasquale: via wlan?
05:37<fxiny>dmg: i know that , mount your hd and cp
05:37<pasquale>no valdyn , ethernet only with a router
05:37<hypnotic>valdyn: uhm I never fixed the channel bug, that was probably due to this update alsa-base (1.0.15-3) to 1.0.15-4
05:37<valdyn>pasquale: install putty on windows and try ssh transfer
05:37<dmg>fxiny: didnt think of that , thx
05:37<valdyn>pasquale: or in fact any alternative file transfer method
05:38<hypnotic>valdyn: but then i started fiddling with the clock rate in kmix and the problem we just fixed appeared
05:38<valdyn>pasquale: there should be winscp, google knows i guess
05:38<dmg>fxiny: wont let me open it

05:38<valdyn>hypnotic: so kmix is doing something weird uh
05:38<hypnotic>valdyn: would reinstall of alsa-base fix this again?

05:39<hypnotic>valdyn: seems so yes
05:39<fxiny>dmg: learn how to mount a partition first
05:39<valdyn>hypnotic: this is config file related or a driver bug
05:39<valdyn>hypnotic: both is totally unaffected by reinstalling packages
05:39<dmg>fxiny: wanna teach me ?
05:40<hypnotic>valdyn: but something fixed the bug last week
05:40<fxiny>dmg: mount -t ext /dev/hdxxxx /mountpoint whre mountpint is supposed to be a /mnt/subdir and xxx is your hda-number
05:40<pasquale>ok valdyn thx i will try
05:40<hypnotic>valdyn: not by my hands
05:40<fxiny>dmg: mount -t ext3 ....
05:40<valdyn>hypnotic: new alsa packages
05:41<hypnotic>valdyn: yup my thoughts exactly, but you say reinstalling will not make a difference?
05:41<valdyn>hypnotic: yea
05:41*Enfilade notes that rtorrent is excellent
05:41<hypnotic>valdyn: so updating fixes it, but reinstalling not?
05:41<valdyn>hypnotic: it doesnt exactly make sense
05:42<dmg>fxiny: i'll try , thx
05:42<fxiny>Enfilade: encryption enabled ?
05:42<valdyn>hypnotic: nor does the bug coming back
05:42<Enfilade>No idea
05:42<fxiny>i bet yours is not :P

05:43<hypnotic>valdyn: haha ok well I just saw alsa was being updated and after reboot the channel bug was gone
05:44<hypnotic>valdyn: channelbug has nothing to do with kmix
05:44<hypnotic>valdyn: iec958 bug probably does
05:44<valdyn>hypnotic: for the gnome mixer , which it will "jump" unpredictably while I try to change it
05:44<valdyn>hypnotic: maybe you just cant see that in kmixer for lack of direct feedback from the actual device settings
05:45<hypnotic>valdyn: what do you mean?
05:45<valdyn>hypnotic: when i change one slider, the other slider might jump around
05:46<valdyn>hypnotic: if your mixer app has no direct feedback from the actual sound card settings then you will not see those unpredictable changes
05:46<fxiny>hypnotic: are you sure there are no kmix config in /etc/kde3 ?
05:46<hypnotic>valdyn: yup
05:46<hypnotic>valdyn: i mean yes
05:47<valdyn>hypnotic: for instance, i slide up both ( locked together ) channels, it will randomly unlock and mute while im sliding
05:47<valdyn>hypnotic: i dont know if that is somethign that might be happening to you too
05:47<valdyn>hypnotic: its unrelated to the mixer you use, but the gnome mixer just displays it nicely
05:48<hypnotic>valdyn: no all distros and mixers had the same problem

06:57<EmleyMoor>Not known yet. A previous one has been tried and I am still awaiting vendor advice
06:57<EmleyMoor>Not to my knowledge
06:57<EmleyMoor>(if there is, it's a secret firewall!)
06:58<valdyn>EmleyMoor: you should ask on a forum specific to your phone

06:59<hever>So if I'm going to download a file I must know the path on the remote system. To get this path in a easy way I log on the remote system there I go to the file and look up the whole path. Then I use the scp command and pass the path to it. And if I'm going to store the file not under my homedir I have to remember the path where I'm going to store it. I thougt there was something easy like....
06:59<hever>...Get fileXX and its stored im my homedir...

10:17<yoluca>just installed
10:18<yoluca>should i run what dpkg just said ?
10:18<witte>and use the thing dpkg told you on the post_etch (because your kernel is post_etch) installation of the nvidia drivers
10:18<nielsle>Regarding the kernel headers. I think that kmuto describes this in a faq
10:19<witte>dooder: he cant go to 2.6.22, because that is not in etch, so he would have to go to lenny. For now, that is not needed

10:49<miono>Hi, I'm having a problem during installation... "No disk drive was detected." And it wants me to scroll through a list of drivers. I'm using 3 standard Seagata-drives S-ATA:
10:50-!-chain_ [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]

10:50-!-captainchris [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
10:50<miono>pumpkin0: Does that mean that I can't use AHCI during installation?
10:50<miono>Or at all?
10:50<pumpkin0>miono: you can use AHCI, but not together with a onBoard RAID.
10:51<miono>pumpkin0: Hm, okay, I'll have a look.
10:51<pumpkin0>miono: (at leat not w/o some hacks and tricks to get the RAID-Driver into the netinstall iso)

10:52-!-tiscali [] has quit []
10:52<pumpkin0>miono: anything about RAID ?
10:53<miono>pumpkin0: I also have "Onboard SATA/IDE Ctrl Mode" with options: "IDE" "AHCI" "RAID/IDE" AHCI is the one activated
10:53<pumpkin0>miono: sounds good. What chipset does that board use ?
10:53<miono>pumpkin0: hm, Intel P35 ?
10:53<miono>pretty sure it's intel p35
10:54<hever>Hi. I read the securing debian howto and read there are some patches to the standard kernel. For example there is a patch against buffer overflow. Why are the patches not installed by default on a new system?
10:54<miono>pumpkin0: or do you mean ICH9 ?
10:54<hever>or "prepatched"
10:54<pumpkin0>miono: P35/ICH9 should work in AHCI-Mode.
10:54<pumpkin0>miono: you never enabled a RAID ?
10:55<miono>pumpkin0: Nope.
10:56<hever>And does it make sense to install the most of them to improve security ?
10:56<pumpkin0>miono: the fast way out is to disable the AHCI-mode. The long way starts by checking for any BIOS-updates..
10:57<pumpkin0>hever: which patch do you talk about ?
10:57<miono>pumpkin0: If I disable AHCI-mode. Will I be able to use LVM later on with Hot-Swapping etc?
10:57<hever>pumpkin0: Ehm at the moment I'm just asking generally.
10:58<pumpkin0>miono: LVM will work no-matter-what. Hotswap (as in swapping drives while the PC runs) is a bugger. It should work with AHCI and IDE. But it often fails with both.
10:58<miono>pumpkin0: I have an option in BIOS: "SATA Port0-1 Native Mode"
10:58<miono>That can be set to enabled and disabled
10:58-!-OdyX [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]

11:04<miono>pumpkin0: But when trying that one out I just get bounced back to the selection
11:05<pumpkin0>miono: do you really need the hotswap-option ?
11:06<miono>pumpkin0: No, I really don't. I'm just thinking that it would be cool to run the drives in AHCI to be benefitted from NCQ, Full SATA transfer-rate etc.
11:06<miono>Or have I misunderstood the whole AHCI-thing?

11:07<pumpkin0>miono: w/o AHCI the controller turns into a IDE-UDMA-300 monster.
11:08<miono>pumpkin0: Okay, So for me, the only difference will be NCQ or not NCQ... But it's still strange, I haven't edited anything about RAID in BIOS

12:09<pumpkin0>miono: yes, but is will be a bit more complex then doing LVM from the start. Does the BIOS see the drives ?
12:09<miono>pumpkin0: yup
12:10<pumpkin0>miono: RAID5 on CPU is a tough call. You waste a lot of CPU-power and gain a little bit of performance. But you also get a bit redundancy. Your choice.
12:11<miono>pumpkin0: I'm using it for redundancy. The computer will be used as a fileserver.
12:11<war9407>raid5 on a modern cpu is like 1-2% of the CPU unless you are doing 500 megs/sec then its 10-30% :)

14:43<lupine_85>if you really wanted to do it with debian, then you basically use ramdisks for all the volatile places (especially /var)
14:43<hauke>hi! One short question: How can i get wine-0.9.45 for debian sid?
14:43<lupine_85>then mirror the changes back over to the CF at hardware shut down
14:43<hauke>i use 0.9.53 atm but it doesnt work with warctaft3
14:44<hauke>45 did
14:44<fxiny>the emperor has no clothes : CF sucks
14:45<lupine_85>I think that the ability to have an entirely solid-state PC is anything /but/ sucky
14:45<Christmas>yep i had the same problem hauke
14:45<Christmas>0.9.49 seemed to work best for warcraft, at least for me
14:45<fxiny>they break down easy
14:45<Christmas>you can compile from source if you want
14:45<hauke>ok - how can i get 0.9.49 debs for sid? ^^
14:45<hauke>hm...any binaries around?=

15:44<dpkg>Test Failed.
15:44<dpkg>hmm... non-free is a component which contains software that does not comply with the <DFSG>. To add non-free packages to your packages index, ask me about <non-free sources>. To see which non-free packages are installed on your system, ask me about <vrms>. For the Non-free tracking system, see
15:44<valdyn>!non-free sources
15:44<dpkg>non-free sources is, like, edit /etc/apt/sources.list, ensure that the two main debian mirror lines end with "main contrib non-free" rather than just "main", then apt-get update, or but bear in mind that you'll be installing <non-free> software. This may have onerous terms; check the licenses.
15:44<HiP_P>Maulkin: thank you once again
15:44<dpkg>extra, extra, read all about it, vrms is The Virtual Richard M. Stallman for Debian GNU/Linux, now included with every fresh potato!

20:53<gsimmons>istoc: Can't see anything amiss, provided you've specified the correct interface to listen for requests on. Check that DHCPREQUESTs are being received from clients in your syslog. Also verify that you haven't inadvertently blocked DHCP traffic through use of a packet filter/firewall on your dnsmasq host.
20:55<istoc>gsimmons: How do I check if the requests are being recieved? All I've been doing is reading the RX column in ifconfig for the interface.

21:50<dpkg>to load custom libs not specified in /etc/, set the variable LD_PRELOAD= to the full path to the lib you want to "preload". If you want access to a whole dir of libs (for mozilla), set LD_LIBRARY_PATH instead.
21:51<Supaplex>peanuts132: all depends on the langauge you want to write it in

21:55<Supaplex>gene2: is more invasive. LD_PRELOAD is less so, it'll only affect the app(s) you're running. It sounds like it could load a totally different glibc - can't hurt to try that first.
