06:01<gsimmons>Knight_Lord: Provided your intended architecture supports PXE booting, you can deploy the relevant arch-specific netboot tarball in another directory on your TFTP server. Then establish a "boot menu" (eg. pxelinux.cfg/default) to select your desired installer kernel/initrd.
06:03<Knight_Lord>gsimmons Where can I find the relevant manpage on how to setup this boot menu?

06:56<fanto666>however that will build all available modules (in sid), not just ipw3945, for all kernels, not only mine
06:56<panthera>what are you trying to do?
06:56<aurel42>Hi. Can anyone think of a quick way to get the seconds since reboot or a timestamp (seconds since epoch) for the last reboot, perhaps a file that is touched only during reboot that I could use with data --reference?
06:56<panthera>backport a kernel, or backport a kernel module?
06:57<aurel42>...on the shell (or inside a bash script).
06:57<fanto666>panthera just build ipw3945 modules from sid (1.2.2) for etch kernel, so the version would be apropriate
06:58<panthera>fanto666: i'm don't know offhand if the version from sid works with the etch kernel.
06:58<panthera>fanto666: if so, backport ipw3945 to etch, rebuild l-m-e-2.6 from etch.
06:58<aurel42>./var/run/motd is created during boot. That'll do. -- Thanks, aurel42! :)

06:59<aurel42>panthera: parsing the result of uptime would be non-trivial in bash. :)
07:00<panthera>i don't think so?
07:00<aurel42>panthera: You can parse "14 days, 7 hours, 4 minutes" faster than doing "date +%s --reference /var/run/motd"?
07:00<panthera>UPTIME="$(cat /proc/uptime | awk '{ print $1 }')"
07:01<aurel42>Ah, I thought you were talking about /usr/bin/uptime :)
07:01<aurel42>Thanks, /proc/uptime will do nicely.
07:02<aurel42>panthera, mind telling me what the second number in /proc/uptime is?
07:03<panthera>aurel42: no idea :)

07:24<petemc>it has documentation
07:25<poppen>ok ty

10:42<azeem>tim: which hosts?
10:42<azeem>tim: and what do you mean with "won't work"?
10:43<tim>azeem, "don't work" means, that hosts can't be looked up: .... ping: unknown host
10:44<azeem>works for me
10:45<tim>azeem, i hope so!

13:19<E0x>maybe you can do that the app write they pid in a file
13:20<E0x>so you can check in the file what pid are and kill it
13:20<Woet>i cant change the app.
13:21<E0x>look for the options/manual of the app maybe already have the funtion/flag

15:37<donfede>dondelelcaro: but there must be a "lowest common denominator" (ie: don't pass $X or things will break)
15:38<donfede>back in "old days" it was 8 char ... (may still be on systems like AIX) ...
15:38<donfede>but POSIX / *nix is still alive and kicking and has come a long way ... it's got to be something more now
15:38-!-daniel_ [] has joined #debian
15:39<donfede>would that limit/answer be in PAM? (I'm searching passwd , from shadowutils package, code now)
15:39<dondelelcaro>donfede: uid tends to be limited to < 65534, password has no real length limits (though some things start ignoring characters after some point), and usernames don't really have a set limit either, though that depends on everything that is using the username information.

15:40<donfede>i'm seeing limits of 128 for passwd in the passwd util (crypt/des only looked at first 8 chars ... I believe md5 only looks at first 32 ... ) ... still I am particularly interested in username
15:40-!-ohcibi_ [] has joined #debian
15:41<donfede>oh, looks like md5 pass length limit is 127 .
15:41<donfede> if (getdef_bool ("MD5_CRYPT_ENAB"))
15:41<donfede> pass_max_len = 127;
15:41<Supaplex>is there a smarter way to do this? I'd like to install the available build-dep's even if some are missing (and backport those by hand myself, if need be) the output files seem to be a little too unpredictible to totally automate this.
15:41<dondelelcaro>donfede: most of the limits you're going to find are agregate limits
15:42<dondelelcaro>donfede: NIS for example has to have line lengths of less than 1024

15:44<mitchell>guys i downloaded an unstable version of debian 4.0 and burned it on a bootable disc but when i restart my pc and tried to boot it takes me in a mr-dosA: prompt!! can someone help

15:48-!-apok [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
15:48<mitchell>its etch that im trying to install
15:48<Mr-R>mitchell: how did you burn the iso? with some fancy "boot-cd" option?
15:49<Supaplex>then it's one screwed up iso with the wrong bootimage (eltirito or how ever you spell it)
15:49<miksuh>damn, looks like there is no backported Anjuta 2.2 packages for the Etch..
15:49<miksuh>I woul like to use Anjuta 2.2, but don't want to upgrade to lenny yet..
15:49<mitchell>i straightly burned it with nero to avoid trouble
15:49<peleg>how can I get the list of all of the users?
15:50<Supaplex>miksuh: /msg dpkg chroot install
15:50-!-noid19322 [~ds@] has joined #debian
15:50<miksuh>yeah that would be one solution..
15:50<valdyn>!simple sid backport
15:50<dpkg>First: See if the package has already been backported. Ask me about <backports>. If it hasn't, 1) Add a deb-src line for sid to your sources.list. 2) apt-get update 3) apt-get build-dep packagename;apt-get -b source packagename; 4) install the resultant debs.
15:50<Supaplex>mitchell: I want to examine the iso image. can you tell me what url it's from?
15:50<Supaplex>valdyn: that's not so simple sometimes.
15:50<valdyn>miksuh: did you try backporting anjuta?
15:51<miksuh>not yet
15:51<valdyn>Supaplex: yea, im aware
15:51<valdyn>miksuh: try, if it works its an easy solution
15:51<miksuh>it might ne harder than just backoporting simple application..
15:51<mitchell>supaplex: its straight from the debian site
15:52<mitchell>i dont remember the exact torrent
15:52<Supaplex>well that's reassuring.
15:52<miksuh>Yep, I think i'll try if it's possible
15:52<Supaplex>if the boot image is that fubar, #debian-boot will know why

19:46<witte>sorry, the latter as root, the first can as normal user

22:19<Winner>I was only in ubuntu a second as I don't like it either but was suprised at the userbase
22:21<Winner>considering how old debian is, as the fact ubuntu uses it's base or whatever else yet ubuntu's popularity has exploded versus debians, in terms of time frame and probably overall numbers

22:22<Winner>I think it's pretty clear theres a key factor in ubuntu the appeals the the masses, that debian lacks, you can argue quality over quanity but more users = better quality
22:22<Winner>more people contributing, testing, promoting etc...
22:23<Winner>and that key factor is extreme "stupid easy" usability that windows users are accustomed to and I wish debian would push more towards
22:23<lupine_85>keyword, unfortunately, is "stupid"
22:23<lupine_85>I'll keep intelligence, ifit's all the same to you
22:23<Winner>it's 2008 everything should be stupid easy, it's the only way to progess forward to more complex things
22:24<lupine_85>ubuntu can keep the stupid easy and "progress"
22:24<Winner>lupine_85 making things harder isn't intelligent IMO, it's quite the opposite
22:24<abrotman>try talking about ubuntu in #ubuntu .. not here
22:24<lupine_85>I tried to do a gutsy install and configuration recently... numerous techincal problems foxed me. Those problems don't exist on debian
22:24<Winner>abrotman i'm talking about ubuntu and how it relates to debian
22:25<abrotman>Winner: it's still OT here ..

22:26<abrotman>Winner: that's what this is *supposed* to be
22:26<lupine_85>Winner: if you can simplify and improve debian without breaking things for the technical user, I encourage you to submit patches
22:27<Winner>I doubt the user base would take, you seem very opposed to drastic yet much needed change, because it'll effect what you're accustomed to
22:27<lupine_85>in practice, that's remarkably hard to do
22:27<lupine_85>Winner: I'm all for /improvement/
22:27-!-GNUdog [~botu@] has joined #debian
22:27<Winner>it's not the 80's or 90's anymore though, so the only way i'd get what's needed in linux is start my own distro
22:27<lupine_85>where improvement is measured in the amount of time it takes me to get a job done
22:28<Winner>and seeing as they're over 1000 as there is
22:28<Winner>i'll pass
22:29<Winner>lupine I could work with a team and release a HIGHLY improve debian distro and I could picture it now
22:29<lupine_85>Name some specific examples of things you would "improve"
22:29<Winner>trolling, personal attacks, and complete refusal from a great deal of the community
22:29<lupine_85>make sure you don't break debian's DFSG
22:30<Winner>first off i'd make posix mandatory and improve upon it abit
22:30<Winner>to make system programming alot easier
22:30<lupine_85>how can you be posix-compliant if you "improve" upon it?
22:30<Winner>see, already you're on the defense
22:31<abrotman>lupine_85: probably best to stop now .. you just can't beat that ...
22:31<lupine_85>I'm pointing out a huge logic flaw
22:31<lupine_85>abrotman: I can beat all sorts of things. Usually with big sticks, but meh :)
22:31<Winner>well it won't be compliant afterwards, but staying compadible with those who refuse change would just hurt my improvments?
22:31<abrotman>Winner: do you have a Debian question or not?
22:31<lupine_85>give specific examples of how your POSIX improvements would be better than GNU's
