01:20-!-ernesto [~ecrespo@] has joined #debian
01:21<k-man>its "unix fast file system"
01:21<k-man>and my kernel doesn't seem to recognise it
01:21-!-p_quarles [] has joined #debian
01:24<amphi>k-man: that's a bsd fs I believe
01:24<snogglethorpe>amphi: isn't there a somehwath limited linux fs for it, called "ufs"?
01:25<snogglethorpe>i seem to recall it wasn't really production ready but maybe could be used for grovelling a filesystem...
01:26<amphi>snogglethorpe: rings a vague bell - RO perhaps?
01:26<snogglethorpe>amphi: yeah that sounds right though I don't know how much it's developed over the years...
01:29<k-man>amphi, yeah, i think your right
01:29<k-man>ufs couldn't mount it

01:34<mike>hi all, i need a little help with installing a network card module
01:35<amphi>mike: which one?
01:35<mike>bcm5700 on 2.6.18-6-amd64 kernel
01:36<amphi>what's the problem? I know nothing of that particular driver, BTW
01:36<mike>ah ok
01:36-!-muammar [muammar@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
01:36<mike>well, i've used module-assistant to get it built/installed
01:36<mike>but now when i do 'modprobe -i bcm5700'
01:37<mike>i get unknown symbol errors
01:37<mike>"Unknown symbol register_ioctl32_conversion"
01:37<mike>"Unknown symbol unregister_ioctl32_conversion"
01:37<mike>any ideas?
01:37<amphi>perhaps it needs a newer kernel? I guess
01:38<mike>well from my reading it looks like the latest kernel supports the bcm5700 natively, although I can't find this info in any official sources
01:38-!-lostson [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
01:40<amphi>'latest kernel'?
01:40-!-chapajai [] has joined #debian
01:40<mike>2.6.25 i think
01:41<mike>like I said though, I couldn't find out if that driver is supported natively
01:41-!-Garda [~Garda@] has joined #debian
01:42-!-mentor_ [~matthew@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
01:43<mike>is there a way that I can find out if it is native (without installing the kernel)??
01:44-!-Garda [~Garda@] has quit []
01:44<k-man>mike, you could download the kernel source and have a look
01:45-!-Garda [~Garda@] has joined #debian
01:45<amphi>mike: I don't find any bcm other than bcm43xx in make menuconfig in 2.6.25
01:47<mike>ok i may have found another fix (although I might need some help getting this to work
01:47<mike>there is a bug report stating that the symbols modprobe is complaining about aren't in the kernel from 2.6.14
01:48<mike>(on 64 bit architectures)

01:55<kevin>Hello, I was wondering if anyone could help me with my problem.
01:56<kevin>I'm running Debian Etch on a Compaq R3000, and my mouse is incredibly slow to move across the screen.
01:56<kevin>I looked at my xorg.conf, and the only thing that looked wrong was that it was "ImPS2" and not "PS2." I editted it, and it's still very slow.

02:21<amphi>anything in syslog?
02:21<mike>nothing referring to eth0
02:21<mike>(or tg3)
02:22<mike>i probably missed a few steps
02:22<mike>ah well i think its still trying to load the bcm5700 driver which can't be helping

04:48-!-camel__ [] has joined #debian
04:49<camel__>is there a way I can run a debian amd64 installer from a gentoo i386 system? i've just been given a box, it's amd64 hardware (and has 8gb of ram) but it's running 32-bit gentoo. no cdrom, no floppy
04:49<camel__>i have just a network connection
04:50<muep_>camel__: can you boot from usb?
04:50-!-meandtheshell [] has joined #debian
04:51<camel__>muep_: oh man ;( i think i *could* (i do have keyboard/video into this box) but i don't have any usb media!! :(
04:51<camel__>the best idea i have atm is try to build an appropriate kernel on a remote amd64 machine (which i do have access to)
04:51<camel__>then just brutally install that kernel, boot it, and run 32-bit debootstrap from the gentoo machine
04:51<camel__>(to their credit, debootstrap is in gentoo :)

05:57<Gathond>I don't think redirection allows you to do both, just output it to a file, then read that and display it
05:57<Gathond>or read it into variable, then display that and save it
05:58<homer>oh, in that case i feel much better, thought it's supposed to be done with redirection for some reason
05:59<homer>thanks man i will do that
05:59<Gathond>I only think you can redirect it, not clone it along the way

06:07<Gathond>homer: snogglethorpe might be right about tee being able to clone the data though
06:08<snogglethorpe>if you want to write to a file and also to stdout, that's exactly what tee does....

06:42<sk_>Is it safe to install MP500 printer driver provided by Takushi Miyoshi?
06:42<sk_>Takushi Miyoshi

06:44<sk_>Im a debian user
06:44<Gekz>debian doesnt use universe or multivers
06:44<Gekz>sk_: is it in the repos
06:44<Smurfie>Hey, I'm just a newbie on Debian. ;-)
06:44<sk_>Which repo? gekz?
06:44<Smurfie>Oh, that is Ubuntu specific?

06:51<Gekz>is the drivers you have linux drivers?
06:51<Gekz>or windows drivers?
06:52<sk_>Canon provides linux drivers on their web site but
06:52<sk_>it didnt work.
06:52<sk_>I found an alternative idea
06:53-!-NinjaMan [] has quit [Quit: Leaving.]
06:53<sk_>to use a linux driver provided by Miyoshi
06:53<Gekz>give it a go then
06:53<Gekz>if you're confident you can track it down and remove it if you need to
06:54-!-Celelaptop__ [] has joined #debian
06:54<sk_>but how can i verify it is safe?
06:55<Gekz>I cant see how it would destroy anything
06:55<Gekz>its a printer driver
06:55<Smurfie>Depends on your definition of "safe", I should say.
06:56<Smurfie>Do you trust the author, does he participate in support mailing lists, does he have a history of writing safe code, etc.
06:56<Smurfie>Or don't you know anything about him?
06:57<Smurfie>But then again like Gekz said, it's just a printer driver.

08:50<dpkg>from memory, ipchains is a rewrite of the Linux IPv4 firewalling code (which was mainly borrowed from BSD) and a rewrite of ipfwadm, which was a rewrite of BSD's ipfw, I believe. It is required to administer the IP packet filters in Linux kernel versions 2.1.102 and above. or Which is surpassed in kernel 2.3 (and 2.4 when released) by netfilter, which you can get and compile at, or a regular in the channel

09:27<Smurfie>If not, it's Dell Support who has to help me.
09:27<mysupper>I guess I will use kftpgrabber as ftp client for a long time
09:27<Smurfie>I'm glad you like those apps.
09:27<mysupper>I've never used ubuntu.
09:27<Smurfie>Ubuntu is just a layer over Debian.
09:28<Smurfie>They say it's the user-frindliness layer. ;-)

09:28<mysupper>I installed some..10 ftp clients..the best was kftpgrabber.
09:28<Smurfie>I just had to check that out for myself.

09:28<mysupper>debian is the best simple OS.
09:28<Smurfie>"Bringing Debian to the desktop" ;-)
09:28<mysupper>even simpler than M$.
09:29<Smurfie>Statistics say, Ubuntu is quite popular.
09:29<davi>M$ is not an OS it is a nightmare
09:29<mysupper>I don't think M$ not good. I think it too expensive. :(
09:30<mysupper>I can buy and use that..but what about other applications...I will not tolerate that high costs.
09:30<Smurfie>I don't consider money often, I find design flaws more interesting to focus on.
09:30<davi>mysupper, it is not about price, it is about freedom and quality
09:30<mysupper>Smurfie no..the money ..that's the problem.
09:31<Smurfie>But yes, the license fees can add up to surprisingly large amounts.

09:33<davi>mysupper, I predict it will come the day when Ubuntu (Canonical) will close. That will not happen with Debian.
09:33<noflash>ubuntu is off topic in here

09:34<aronzak>FreeBSD is vaguely on topic
09:34<Smurfie>I use OpenBSD, but of course the others are BSDs, too.
09:34<aronzak>it is somewhat useable on the desktop
09:34<Smurfie>Free is the biggest BSD.
09:34<davi>let talk only about our family
09:34<aronzak>without your head imploding
09:35<Smurfie>I started out with Linux many years ago.
09:35<noflash>davi, unless the family is using debian that'd be off topic too

09:44<Shinn>I am wondering if you any of you would be kind enough to help a noob
09:44<Smurfie>Just be specific.
09:44<mysupper>shinn , don't worry just install X and play with it.
09:45<Shinn>everyone I ask tell me..if you don't know linux use windows..but..everyone needs to start somewhere ne?
09:45<Shinn>ah ok great! Thank you much Sirs =)
09:45<Shinn>well can you please tell me how I should install this first?
09:45<Shinn>I am very confused on all the image files and whatnot
09:45<Nemoder>what kind of computer do you have?
09:46<Shinn>I want to install the stable version
09:46<mysupper>Shinn , yea...start with debian iso cd image , stable release.
09:46-!-Renegade_ [] has joined #debian
09:46<Smurfie>That should all be documented extensively on the Web I think.

09:47<mysupper>shinn, so please buy a hdd.
09:47<Nemoder>mysupper: why do you not recommend net install?
09:48<Shinn>you mean like an external hard Drive?
09:48<mysupper>Nemoder , apt thing will be a burden to newbies.
09:48<mysupper>shinn, yes.
09:48<Shinn>yep I have it!

11:03<HaMMiE>mysupper: the -p in apt-get is forrr????
11:03<dpkg>hmm... purge is to completely wipe away a package, including its config files. Use aptitude purge [package] or if you already removed package with apt-get remove, and forgot config files you can use 'dpkg -P <package>' to remove configs. To purge all config files of all removed packages: aptitude purge '~c', or see <confmiss> about restoring individual config files
11:03<mysupper>HaMMiE --purge was right.

11:11<mysupper>already installed it. ( whereis it?...not on gnome panel?)
11:11<mysupper> this for shells?
11:11<DoctorB>dudes i got a probleme, i own a Toshiba Pro and only the Speakers of the Notebook works, if i plug in a clinch cable in the front nothing happens :( i guess thats because the hda_intel(alsa) driver think that the pcspeakers are already pluged in external speakers, now is my questen how i am able to fix this (OS is Debian 4.0) sorry for my poor english ;)
11:12<mysupper>xmms2 offers a simple command-line interface to the XMMS2 daemon.

11:18<themill>DoctorB: the support for hda-intel has improved a lot since that kernel.

12:35<dpkg>If you've recently upgraded your kernel and your system hangs at "waiting for the root filesystem", this may be from the libata transition. /dev/hd? disks might now be known as /dev/sd?. At the grub menu, press e to edit the entry, change the ROOT= part, then press b to boot. You need to edit your /boot/grub/menu.lst and perhaps also your /etc/fstab.

13:01<Flakk>Hi people, the question may well be out of topic, but maybe somebody still could help. I am using debian etch, and would like to get sound alerts when a Yahoo e-mail arrives. I have chosen the corresponding option at Yhoo's preferences, still no sound. Any help?
13:02-!-mode/#debian [+l 399] by debhelper
13:02<witte>davi: you can try to modprobe the right drivers
13:02<valdyn>Flakk: Yahoo's preferences meaning what? their flash website?
13:02<cahoot>I suppose that's one of the first things microsoft will fix after the takeover
13:03<Flakk>valdyn: no I mean in their "options" you can choose to have the sound signal or not to have it, I have chosen to have it
13:03<valdyn>Flakk: yes, you said that, but im asking about the software that is giving you those "options"
13:05<davi>valdyn, I see
13:05<davi>witte, let me try
13:06<Flakk>well, I do not know what the "flash website" means. When I open my e-mail account there is an "options" button. I click on it - I get a list of options (this is only the new Yhoo, the classic one does not suggest sounds) and one of the options is :get the sound alert). I do not know what piece of soft they use for that

13:09<valdyn>Flakk: yea, i never used it before though
13:09<themill>Flakk: I'm guessing the sound bit is flash related. Either that or it's going to rely on an mplayer plugin or something like that. In any case, yuck :(
13:09<Flakk>valdyn: do you have "options"?
13:09<valdyn>Flakk: on the right near top ( options )
13:10<Flakk>valdyn then you click on it. If you have the new version the sounds are there

13:52<homer>$1 is the first argument passed to the script
13:52<ifvoid>* is a simpel shell match

16:00<ifvoid>yes, I could, if you tell me which OS it is running

16:48<dpkg>etchnhalf is probably "etch + 1/2" -- an update to Debian's stable release "etch" designed to provide support for newer hardware. It will include a 2.6.24 kernel and provide an updated installer. See:

17:12<Nazcafan>I think this chipset requires a firmware in order to be used
17:12<dpkg>If you're running a recent version of Debian (etch or greater), do the following: add <contrib> and <non-free> entries in your sources.list, "aptitude update && aptitude install ipw3945-modules-$(uname -r) firmware-ipw3945 ipw3945d && modprobe ipw3945". If you're running Debian's 2.6.23 or newer, ask me about <iwlwifi>. See also <ipw3945-fu>
17:12<dpkg>i guess iwlwifi is the new driver for Intel 3945 and 4965 wireless chipsets. Included in Debian kernels since 2.6.23 (modprobe iwl4965 or iwl3945) and is difficult to get working with kernels < 2.6.21. Firmware provided by the 'firmware-iwlwifi' package (lenny/sid). HOWTO at or #ipw2100 @, or <wireless tree>
17:13<witte>offby1: and if you use a installer with kernel > 2.6.23, you should be ok
17:13<witte>!etch 2.6.23

17:13<offby1>witte: yikes, wait; it'll take me a while to absorb all that
17:14<Nazcafan>witte: but is the firmware-iwlwifi package included in the install CD ?
17:14<witte>offby1: it is just that you need ipw3945 with an old kernel, and iwlwifi for higher kernels

17:15<witte>Nazcafan: well, i think you do not need a binary driver for iwlwifi
17:15<offby1>witte: so are you suggesting that I not try to install via the wireless adaptor, but instead install some other way; and then afterwards install the iwlwifi package?
17:15<Nazcafan>witte: binary firmware

17:16<Flakk>Hello people, I have a strange problem which never occurred before. I am using debian etch. I can not boot the machine, it stops with the message:ACPI: Core revision 20060707. Any help?
17:16<offby1>I barely understand any of this.
17:16<Nazcafan>offby1: in order to make your wireless adapter work, you need 2 things
17:16<offby1>Nazcafan: ok ...
17:16<Nazcafan>offby1: a driver which is ran by your CPU
17:16<Nazcafan>and a piece of code called firmware, which is run by the wireless adapter itself
17:17<abrotman>witte: that .23 is outdated
17:17<abrotman>witte: kmuto has a .24 now
17:17<offby1>I assumed "firmware" meant it is already on my machine, in the form of chips.
17:17<Nazcafan>offby1: it is not
17:17<witte>offby1: no, i suggested ot install the etch netinstall of kmuto, which has the newest kernel, and would work directly
17:17<witte>Nazcafan: did you check out
17:17<witte>!tell offby1 about etch 2.6.23
17:17<dpkg>For etch (or sarge) with up-to-date kernels, see

17:18<witte>abrotman: yes, you are right, but the dpkg factoid was wrong...
17:18<witte>abrotman: oh, you corrected it, thanks
17:18<chealer>witte: just a binary firmware, as Nazcafan. the driver is GPL. but you can't use IPW 3945 in the installer anyway.
17:18<Nazcafan>offby1: if the kernel version of your install CD is superior or equal to 2.6.24, the driver should be built in
17:18<witte>abrotman: it was outdated...
17:18<offby1>I fear this is more complexity than I can handle. No offense, but I wonder if there's a different distro that will be easier for me to install. (I tried ubuntu, and it sorta works most of the time, but the wireless flakes out for no reason )

17:21<offby1>witte: ok.
17:21<Nazcafan>just install it using the ethernet, then upgrade the kernel version to the latest and just install the firmware package

18:03<plugwash>the debian installer can resize ntfs, as always the official line is that backups are reccomeneded ;)
18:04<chealer>vxdscn: why, does something make you think you need a package?
18:05<chealer>SHinnn: just ask your question
18:05<witte>plugwash: thanks, i was not sure about that (long time ago that i had ntfs on a pc of mine :P)
18:05<SHinnn>chealer ok Thank you
18:05<SHinnn>i will backup my files now just incase
18:05<SHinnn>I also have a question, after the partition
18:06<SHinnn>is it possible to later on to remove one partition so the other gets more space?
18:07<witte>SHinnn: resizing generally is possible, but not always without troubles
18:07-!-numayeah [] has joined #debian
18:07<SHinnn>what kind of trouble witte?
18:07<witte>SHinnn: imho you should avoid resizing and beforehand try to plan the layout you will end with
18:08<witte>SHinnn: it can fail horribly :-)
18:08<witte>SHinnn: losing both partitions (note that those bad stories I know of are already quite old, so maybe no longer valid)
18:09<SHinnn>ok can I ask another question then, what if I run out of space since my hard drive is only 80GB
18:09<witte>SHinnn: or even worse, losing the partition table, and loosing all information on the disk :-)
18:09<SHinnn>can I install a new HD later
18:09<SHinnn>and transfer all the data from one partition to the other?
18:09<witte>SHinnn: of course, and only 80 GB, that is normally more than enough
18:10<SHinnn>because windows XP is taking 40gigs already witte
18:10<witte>SHinnn: yes, transfers are also possible, generally, everything you can think of is possible
18:10<SHinnn>so I am thinking I should cut it but half?
18:10<chealer>SHinnn: yes, but as witte wrote resizing can be hard, you should avoid it. particularly, a newbie practically can't move the start of an ext3 partition by himself.

18:20<SHinnn>quick question while it backs up, can you remote a linux using a windows PC?
18:21<angasule>hmm, I want to have a real file system (permissions, like ext2) on my pen drive, but I want to keep the pen drive as fat for general use (my car stereo reads fat)

18:21<corrner>SHinnn: Umm I dont know about a win pc controlling linux but I controlled a win pc from linux
18:21<angasule>so, I made an image file, made an ext2 filesystem inside, but I'm not sure how to /shrink/ it, apparently growing the system is easy
18:21-!-maxstack [~chatzilla@] has left #debian []
18:22<corrner>sngasule: couldn't you just dual partition it in Gparted or something akin to that?

18:33-!-ou [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
18:33<plugwash>to resize a filesystem image you would resize the filesystem first using the appropriate tool
18:33<plugwash>then use dd or a similar tool to resize the image itself
18:33<corrner>I think he left lol
18:34<angasule>plugwash: yes, I did that
18:36<angasule>I did "e2fsck -f /dev/loop0 ; resize2fs /dev/loop0 50M ; dd if=frood.img of=frad.img bs=1M count=55 ; resize2fs /dev/loop0"
18:36<angasule>the final resize was so that the ext2 filesystem would use the whole thing
18:36<angasule>but, is it guaranteed the partition was in the first 50MB? couldn't it have been using the last 50MB instead?
18:37<angasule>err, I swapped frad.img to frood.img before doing the final resize, obviously ;)

20:56<p_quarles>Shinn, umm, it's normally configured by default . . .
20:56<Shinn>ok did that
20:56<Shinn>do I leae bootleg flag off
20:57<Shinn>or on?
20:57<Shinn>as default it's off
20:57<Shinn>should I go with that?

20:59<tj_><----- has a question for anyone who can answer... I am new to linux, i have the i386 etch distro on an amd system.... my "uname -a" gives [Linux debian 2.6.18-6-486] however i snail mailed the 4 disc DVD set same images i used, but he was not able to use a net mirror due to no net connection his shows [Linux debian 2.6.18-6-686] on an intel based system... um why? is he running 64 bit off the 32 bit distro somehow?
20:59<dpkg>i guess swap is RAM you wish you had. Generally it is said that for low amounts of RAM, you should have twice the RAM as swap. You don't have to have a swap partition either, as you can always create a swap file and use that.
20:59<simonrvn>Shinn: ^^^
21:01-!-nike [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
21:01<nevyn>I thought the twice ram as swap was from the understandable VM and now we were back to having incomprehensible vm's it didn't apply anymore
21:02<phillipsjk>tj_ he just choose a kernel image with more compile-time optimizations for his CPU.
21:02<tj_>so... is it infact 32 or 64 bit?
21:02<tj_>i am new so i dont have a clear understanding
21:02<phillipsjk>32 bit I believe.
21:03<chealer>tj_: why what?
21:03<simonrvn>i tend to have ram * 2 for small amounts of ram, and less if a lot. i'd still use a swap partition on a box with say 2 gb ram, just because linux vm mgt. is more efficient with swap
21:03<phillipsjk>686 is Pentium II and newer. (so my machine can't run it.
21:03<tj_>chealer, i guess the question is why is his kernel ver. different than mine.
21:03<tj_>using the same i386 distro
21:05<chealer>tj_: it's just different Linux configuration, because you have different hardware.
21:05<p_quarles>tj_, run "apt-cache search linux-image" to see a rundown of the pre-compiled kernels available to your distro -- a particular distro arch doesn't limit you to one kernel
21:05<Shinn>should I use network mirror?
21:06<tj_>i understand that... but without installing any packages or using anything from the net.. didnt see how he could get an "outside" influence to cause a kernel change
21:06<tj_>Shinn, i dont know much... but i did, it will make sure you get the latest files
21:06<p_quarles>Shinn, unless you downloaded the DVD set, yes
21:06<Shinn>ok ty
21:07<chealer>Shinn: yes
21:07<tj_>OK, i feel better about his being 32 bit as well. i had a heck of a time when trying 64 bit myself with web media such as flash and things

21:27<cricket[b]>i just switched from ubuntu to debian and i'm having trouble setting up wifi... i used ndiswrapper and the driver is installed the wifi light is on.. however iwconfig does not list wlan0 nor does the network monitor have an "enable wireless" toggle... if anyone has any suggestions that would be great thanks.... chipset: 05:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation Dell Wireless 1390 WLAN Mini-PCI Card
21:27<tj_>chealer, if i could get you to take this into consideration for me.... On my system, i have packeage ksynaptics installed. however in Control Center-kde unter touchpad gives [You have to set 'SHMConfig' 'true' in xorg.conf or XF86Config] pop-up... upon review of xorg.conf no touchpad section is implemented.. what to add?
21:27<Shinn>quick question
21:27<Shinn>can i download more if I need later
21:27<Shinn>like if I need a mail server later on
21:27<Shinn>can I do so?
21:28<tj_>certainly shinn
21:28<Shinn>ok awsome
21:28<chealer>tj_: I'm not sure, but I'd start by checking which X touchpad driver he uses.
21:28<kapil>cricket[b]: does iwconfig list anything at all?
21:28<cricket[b]>kapil: no wireless extentions for lo, eth0 and sit0
21:28<tj_>chealer, would i find that info in his xorg.conf file?
21:29<tj_>lcpi didnt give any touchpad info
21:29<tj_>his works its just slow
21:29<chealer>tj_: on Debian 4, yes
21:29<Shinn>what's a DNS server?
21:30<kapil>cricket[b]: sorry. can't help. haven't used ndiswrapper.
21:30<abrotman>Shinn: it's the mechanism that converts hostnames to numbers .. like when you type .. it converts to a number
21:30<cricket[b]>kapil: thanks anyway
21:30<Shinn>oh ok
21:30<tj_>Cricket... not sure.. have you looked for native linux drivers?
21:31<tj_>ndiswrapper is a last resort choice
21:31<cricket[b]>i haven't found any that work
21:31<tj_>ndiswrapper used windows driver files.. you would have to import them to linux and config ndiswrapper for them... have you located the xp files?
21:32<tj_>lemm look for you card cricket.. i have a realtek that was nightmare for wi-fi
21:32<cricket[b]>oh yeah i used the same winxp driver that worked in ubuntu
21:33<cricket[b]>alright i found this: (1390 is working with ndiswrapper unless you have a kernel 2.6.20 then you can use bcm43xx-fwcutter)
21:34<cricket[b]>i suppose i could just install 2.6.20
21:35<kapil>cricket[b]: with the linux driver you need the firmware to be downloaded/extracted.
