00:05<clipper>yeah. i ran "update-rc.d -f tor remove"
00:05<clipper>i think it worked
00:06<hachi>should have
00:08<san>hi, i am trying to install a "custom livetex", using the minimall hard disk space. I am not a guru of Tex or Latex. I am trying to make it width aptitude but because i break some dependencies i dont know what to do. None of the sugestions is what i am trying to do...what should i do? maybe i am doing something wrong? (newbe here)
00:08<san>(texlive not livetex)
00:10<hachi>I'm trying to get grub to work on a drive I have here, I've already had debian linux booting on the machine
00:11<hachi>grub-install /dev/sda, and reboot, system claims there's no boot sector on the drive
00:11<hachi>can't figure out a way to debug this at all
00:11<clipper>sda? flash drive?
00:12<hachi>SATA disk
00:12<hachi>if I use the debian installer, somehow it installs grub so it works
00:12<hachi>if I try to install grub myself (which I need to do in this case) then it doesn't
00:14<hachi>I can't even get stage1 to run

00:24<hachi>the 'grub2' package seems to be a dummy package to help wit a transitional upgrade
00:24<hachi>however... I don't see another grub2 package to actually install grub2
00:24<san> did't make it....i want to install a package with unresolved dependencies....what shoul i do?

00:34<hachi>ooops, dangit, I missed the depends line
00:35<hachi>how do you set up efi partitions in debian?

01:21<hachi>anyone using a modern intel motherboard like DQ35JOE? I can't get grub to work on it for nothing
01:22<hachi>can't find anything with google... like nobody else is having this issue, can't boot off usb key
01:23<jm_>I have a modern motherboard based on intel chipset, but it's not mad by Intel if that helps
01:26-!-alaya [] has quit [Quit: alaya]
01:28<hachi>but what chipset?
01:28-!-Garda [~Garda@] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
01:29<hachi>and grub just happily works in any and all cases?
01:29<jm_>well I only installed grub once and then grub2 and both worked without problems - what error do you get?
01:30<hachi>no error
01:30-!-Bearman [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
01:30<hachi>just doesn't boot
01:30<hachi>claims there's no bootable partition on the disk
01:30<hachi>I can't boot off usb key either
01:30<jm_>what is the exact message?
01:30-!-emonge [~emonge@] has quit [Quit: emonge]
01:31<jm_>Operating system missing? or somesuch
01:31<jm_>or is it Missing operating system? I forgot
01:31-!-Phoenix_the_II [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
01:31<hachi>no, no
01:31<hachi>I have to disable netboot
01:33-!-shashi [~shashi@] has joined #debian
01:33<jm_>do you see GRUB displayed at all?
01:34<hachi>no, I said it doesn't boot at all
01:34<jm_>the word GRUB that is, not the menu
01:34<hachi>no stage 1
01:34<jm_>then it's not a grub problem
01:34<hachi>except for the fact that if I use the debian installer it will boot off that one device
01:34<jm_>d-i uses syslinux
01:34<hachi>I mean the installer step to install grub
01:35<hachi>"No bootable device -- insert boot disk and press any key"
01:35<hachi>bios claims it can't boot from any device in the system
01:35<jm_>yeah sounds like a BIOS thing - do you have active partition on your disk?
01:35-!-OdyX [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
01:36<hachi>I just made it active not 30 minutes ago
01:36<jm_>then you should ask Intel for support I guess, no idea what else it checks
01:37<hachi>I'm trying to find out what magic the debian installer does to install grub that makes it work
01:38<clipper>wow. still working on that, eh?
01:39<hachi>been working on it for two weeks now
01:39<jm_>it calls grub-install
01:39-!-Bearman [] has joined #debian
01:39<clipper>you should install GRUB to a usb drive
01:39<clipper>then tell me how you did it
01:39<hachi>I can't boot off USB either
01:39<hachi>not on this machine
01:39<hachi>I can boot my usb key in almost anything else
01:41<jm_>good to know to avoid Inel motherboards in the future ;)
01:42<hachi>obviously you're not reading what I said, debian installer can make it boot just fine... if I call grub-installer myself with --root-dir and the device map set correctly it doesn't boot
01:42<hachi>maybe this is an issue with the mobo... but it certainly seems like I'm having software issues from where I stand
01:43<hachi>what with it being inconsistent and all
01:45<jm_>then it's you who is screwing up the install
01:45<jm_>no idea why don't you simply let the installer handle it if you can't figure it out
01:45<hachi>but I can't find what I'm doing differently
01:46<hachi>ahh, because I'm trying to rescue a debian install
01:46<jm_>have you tried what dpkg has in "fixmbr"?
01:47<hachi>I don't see a package called fixmbr, let alone have it installed...
01:47<dpkg>So you installed windows after debian, huh? Tssk. Boot to your debian install disk or whatever else you have, switch to the other console (alt-f2), then mount your root filesystem (mount -t ext2 /dev/whatever /target ; mount --bind /dev /target/dev ), then chroot into it (chroot /target) then run "mount /proc ; grub-install /dev/hda && update-grub" Also ask me about <dual boot guide>.
01:47<hachi>rosa:/var/lib/tftpboot# dpkg -l fixmbr
01:47<hachi>No packages found matching fixmbr.

01:48-!-Kerz [~Amarant@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
01:48<hachi>oh, that's not confusing
01:48<hachi>dpkg != dpkg
01:48<dpkg>hachi: bugger all, i dunno
01:48-!-samuel [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
01:48<hachi>I have done that, sadly... and it doesn't work
01:49<jm_>that's what installer does

01:59-!-dmz [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
01:59<hachi>there must be some functional difference between grub-install that the installer is running and the grub-install that I'm running
01:59<hachi>I just tested it again, boots just fine
02:00<jm_>tested it where?
02:00<hachi>on the disk that I'm trying to recover on
02:00<hachi>blew away the partitions, installed debian again
02:00<hachi>grub comes up just fine
02:00-!-MrNaz [] has joined #debian
02:00<hachi>now I'll put the partitions I want back on there, and try installing grub again
02:01<hachi>I'm willing to bet money it will fail silently like it always does
02:02<jm_>now it's failing silently, previously it failed with <hachi> "No bootable device -- insert boot disk and press any key"
02:03<hachi>that's the bios saying that
02:03<hachi>grub is failing silently
02:03<jm_>so it's not failing silently ...
02:03<hachi>sure, whatever
02:03<jm_>no it's not GRUB failing, it doesn't even get there, or your MBR is fucked
02:03<hachi>grub-install overwrites my mbr, no?
02:04-!-blackinside [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
02:04-!-OdyX [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
02:05<jm_>depends on how one installs it
02:05-!-Rodicio [] has joined #debian
02:05<hachi>fine then, `grub-install '(hd0)'`
02:05-!-jMCg [] has joined #debian
02:05-!-OdyX [] has joined #debian
02:07<jm_>that should cut it yes, I recommend you figure out what's the difference with regards to partition table
02:08<hachi>mbr is 512 bytes?
02:10-!-xrcode [~blunt@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
02:10-!-xrcode [] has joined #debian
02:10-!-nxvl [~nxvl@] has joined #debian
02:10<nxvl>i have a doubt on the debian-policy
02:10<nxvl>a package can Suggest a package outside of main?
02:11-!-atperez [~atperez@] has quit [Quit: atperez]
02:12-!-yvasilev [~yvasilev@] has quit [Quit: Leaving.]
02:15<jm_>well MBR itself is 446 bytes or so, and then follows 64 bytes for partition table and signature or somesuch
02:15-!-minimalisti [] has joined #debian
02:17<jm_>nxvl: according to the packages in Debian it can
02:17<jm_>or someone has overlooked it and it's a bug
02:17<nxvl>thank you!

02:20-!-rhood [] has joined #debian
02:22-!-rhood [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
02:24<hachi>the MBR is exactly the same in both the working and non-working cases
02:24<hachi>well, the code area is
02:24<hachi>the partition table differs
02:24<hachi>but that's because I change it
02:24<jm_>then it's likely the partition table which BIOS doesn't like
02:25<clipper>doubt it
02:25<clipper>i've had the same experience
02:26<hachi>I don't know how to read this
02:27-!-superlinux [] has joined #debian
02:27<superlinux>hi all does any one know what kinda hash function ouptut such string? EalBb8qF5C5XrxIio4B5bzNsyFU=
02:28<hachi>doesn't look like a hash, that looks like base64
02:28<hachi>it could be a hash inside it, but who knows
02:29<hachi>20 bytes long...
02:29-!-NinjaMan [] has joined #debian
02:29-!-jakeriver_ [] has quit [Quit: thanks orange <3]
02:30<hachi>sha1 perhaps
02:30-!-xrcode [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
02:31-!-jakerive1 is now known as jakeriver
02:31<hachi>maybe I'm getting a grub error and it's hiding it from me
02:31<jm_>sha1 is 160 bits
02:32<hachi>yeah, 20 bytes long
02:32<jm_>but then the string would be 40 bytes, no?
02:32<hachi>if it was hex encoded, sure
02:32<jm_>well unless it's directly encoded, true
02:32<hachi>160 / 8 last I checked was 20
02:32<hachi>it's base64 encoded in this case
02:32<hachi>not hex encoded
02:33-!-visik7 [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
02:33<jm_>yeah that doesn't make sense, one wouldn't need to use base64 if it was already in hex
02:33-!-xrcode [~blunt@] has joined #debian
02:35<yang>I wonder why is nobody trying very much to setup the new mozilla for lenny
02:35<jm_>yang: which new mozilla?
02:36<hachi>how does grub find stage 1.5 to read the disk partition?
02:36<jm_>it is in sid for quite a while now
02:36-!-pmenier [] has joined #debian
02:36<yang>The packages are outdated on most platforms
02:36<jm_>yang: how so?
02:37<jm_>it's 3.0-rc2
02:37<hachi>I know stage1 is in the MBR 440 byte code segment, and I know that stage1.5 is what actually loads the FS driver, but how does grub's stage1 find the stage 1.5 ?

02:37-!-Rodicio [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
02:37<yang>dpkg: info iceweasel lenny
02:38<jm_>yang: I said sid, not lenny
02:38<dpkg>iceweasel: (lightweight web browser based on Mozilla), section web, is optional. Version: (lenny), Packaged size: 7930 kB, Installed size: 24432 kB
02:38<puzhengcai>anyone speak chinaese?
02:38<yang>jm_: I think it will take longer to enter lenny, since it fails to compile on several platforms
02:39<yang>jm_: but yeah I see it in sid
02:39<hachi>okay, how do I build a GPT in debian? is there a way to do this in the installer at all?
02:40<jm_>hachi: stage1.5 is in a fixed location after MBR
02:40<jm_>yang: indeed, -- you can install it from sid, no problems
02:40<gsimmons>!tell puzhengcai -about cn
02:41<jm_>yang: but I recommend you to wait since there already is a securty bug in it
02:41<craigevil>not to mention several rendering/image bugs
02:42<jm_>I haven't noticed those - the most annoying thing I noticed is mouseless browsing extension is no longer working and middle clicking on a link sometimes goes back (in history) one page
02:44-!-jscinoz [] has joined #debian
02:45<yang>Maybe this is why it doesn't enter testing, becouse new bugs are being discovered
02:45<yang>Anyway I saw how it looks like on a windows version
02:45-!-puzhengcai [~puzhengca@] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
02:46<jm_>that page tells you why - it's not old enough
02:46<jm_>and yeah based on this it won't enter testing for some time now
02:47<Hideo>ok, maybe I'm drunk, but how the heck come update-grub doesn't follow my default menu.lst options and keeps overwriting it everytime?

02:50<Hideo>jm_: do you mean, having them uncommented?
02:50<Hideo>sry, being slow today
02:50-!-slaxz [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
02:50<jm_>Hideo: no, it has to be commented ;)
02:51<clipper>ok. i have a usb drive plugged in and i just edited a file. how do i unmount the drive before i remove it?
02:51<jm_>clipper: man umount

02:54<Hideo>jm_: thanks, I'm retarded
02:54<clipper>did you get it to work?
02:54<jm_>Hideo: to be honest, I always hated how this is done
02:55<jm_>totally uncharacteristic for Unix
02:55-!-Bas1984 [] has joined #debian
02:55<clipper>any reason why /boot/grub wouldn't exist on my system?
02:56<Supaplex>Hideo: the # comments and ## comments have different meanings in the hacked-up debian version. also, beware of modifying stuff inbetween the clearly marked region managed by update-grub
02:56-!-zMoo [~nicolas@] has joined #debian
02:56<jm_>because you're not using GRUB?
02:56<Supaplex>clipper: is /boot a different filesystem? is it mounted? are we talking about a system that supports grub? (don't expect a powerpc system to know what to do with grub)
02:57<Hideo>jm_, Supaplex ah thanks, not to mention it doesn't help me mucking around in configs at 3 am in the morning :P
02:57<Supaplex>!beer Hideo
02:57*dpkg deftly decants a fine Piraat for Hideo
02:57<Supaplex>that'll help ;) haha

02:58<clipper>boot could be a different filesystem
02:58<clipper>um, yeah. i think it is
02:58<Supaplex>it? is? what is? what is it?
02:59<clipper>ext3 i believe
02:59-!-nxvl [~nxvl@] has quit [Quit: leaving]
02:59<Supaplex>oh, so you'll mount it next.
03:00<Supaplex>btw, I flag /boot immutible for my server. I'm using a usb key as /boot - and I'd rather not accidently install a new kernel w/o /boot being mounted. :) After it's mounted, the permissions of the next filesystem take over, and all is well.
03:01<clipper>Supaplexcan your system be booted without the key?
03:01<Supaplex>that was my cheap hack to keep both drives fully usable for raid
03:01<Supaplex>no, not unless I use PXE to boot off the network
03:01-!-xrcode [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
03:01<clipper>and if there was no network?
03:01<Supaplex>then I'm screwed
03:02<Supaplex>I'd have to find my usb key. duh :)
03:02<clipper>i want you to tell me how you did that, but i gtg
03:02<clipper>i'll ask next time i'm here, ok?

03:20<superlinux>well i tried the base64 to decode it.. it doesnt work.. and usually there is a dbl [ = ]
03:20<superlinux>at the end
03:21-!-_42 [] has joined #debian
03:21<superlinux>is there any other base functions like base128?
03:21<hachi>indeed, I just used perl -MMIME::Base64 -le 'print decode_base64 shift' 'whateveryou pasted went here'
03:21<GhostlyDeath|Laptop>Not enough ASCII for base128
03:22<hachi>and it was 20 bytes in length, you thought it was a hash function
03:22<hachi>thus, sha1
03:22<hachi>at least, that was my guess
03:22<hachi>if you're in .net land perhaps you should be asking windows programmers what the deal is
03:23<GhostlyDeath|Laptop>"EalBb8qF5C5XrxIio4B5bzNsyFU=" isn't base64
03:23<GhostlyDeath|Laptop>I i l L are removed
03:23<GhostlyDeath|Laptop>along with O o 0
03:23-!-Gekz [] has joined #debian
03:23<hachi>no they're not
03:24<superlinux>well the problem is that i lost my password and it's saved in a an MDB file as encrypted and i donno what was it.. and it's part of a software, and i am not its maker
03:24<hachi>I don't know what you're thinking of, but base64 is 64 characters, a-z A-Z 0-9 + /
03:24<GhostlyDeath|Laptop>hachi: maybe base32
03:25<superlinux>lemme see
03:25<hachi>26 + 26 + 10 + 2 = 64

03:25<hachi>MDB is an access database
03:25<GhostlyDeath|Laptop>hachi: I read up on some format that removed I i l L o O for being "confusing
03:26<hachi>GhostlyDeath|Laptop: that would be a spoken or read encoding
03:26<hachi>base64 is not intended for reading or speaking
03:26<GhostlyDeath|Laptop>actually, I'm thinking of base32
03:27<GhostlyDeath|Laptop>RFC 4648
03:27<hachi>base 32 still uses I and O
03:27<superlinux>i am looking for an online form that lemme run bas32
03:27<hachi>superlinux: the one = at the end doesn't mean it's not base64
03:27<hachi>I'm willing to bet it's base64 and a sha1
03:27<GhostlyDeath|Laptop>hachi: but not 0 and 1
03:28<superlinux>but all strings i do give dbl =
03:29-!-zMoo [~nicolas@] has joined #debian
03:29<superlinux>hachi how it's sha + base?
03:29<hachi>I know for a fact that base64 can yield a single = in some length of bytes, I don't know what it is though

04:45<hachi>how do you spell it
04:47<hachi>I can't even tell if I'm attempting this right, manpage has an option called LVDSFixedMode, I want to set it off... what section does it belong it... not certain

07:12<EmleyMoor>themill: Yes
07:14<themill>EmleyMoor: so it should have unpacked the source into an exim4-blah/ directory. Inside that there will be a debian/ dir that contains all the packaging info. The file debian/rules controls how the package is built.
07:14<themill>EmleyMoor: debian/rules is a makefile and there should be a target that calls ./configure with appropriate options in there somewhere. Add your extra options to that.
07:14<EmleyMoor>I've tried reading it already though
07:15<petemc>what is it you want to change?
07:15<EmleyMoor>Mind you, I am actually reading elsewhere that the change I want to make is unnecessary as there is a better way - wanted to enable the native SPF check

08:55<gsimmons>_spOOn_: Verify that your device is attached by examining /proc/scsi/scsi contents. You may also need to load the st module.
08:56<Jinx>whats the simplest way of having "mail" send its mail thru a local smtp server? it seems i'm beeing to dumb to figure this one out
08:56<_spOOn_>i can see it attached, but not sure what device it is now mapped to
08:56<jm_>Jinx: install MTA, configure it to do so
08:57<padski_>sasha, sorry. your problem is beyond me, hopefully someone who does know will help.
08:57<gsimmons>_spOOn_: Assuming you've only one tape device in your system, it's /dev/st0.
08:57<Jinx>will MTA also allow the sendmail command (or any wrapper equivalent) to do the same thing?
08:57<petemc>sendmail compatible MTAs will
08:58<Jinx>to make a long story short, i'm trying to get my server to send its mail via gmail (libgmail 1.9's demo gmailsmtp script running on port 25)

09:07<themill>AbsintheSyringe: it's not required for the xorg, aiui
09:07<MrNaz>padski_ yes we considered that, but hacking nfs3 over ssh would be second choice after nfs4
09:08<padski_>MrNaz, backported kernel ?
09:08<MrNaz>cant change the kernel on this machine
09:08<AbsintheSyringe>themill, so on sid now I should be able to get certain higher resolutions by just altering my xorg to what I want?
09:09<MrNaz>yes, we're boxing with one hand tied behind our backs at the moment heh

09:10<AbsintheSyringe>no luck for me, but let me try :)
09:11<padski_>MrNaz, don't reckon you'll get nfs4 running with those constraints. suggest you look at second choice.
09:11<Markus23>has someone experience with doodle?
09:11<MrNaz>yes its looking more and more like thats going to be the only real alternative
09:12<MrNaz>incidentally... is getting poor performance out of SSHFS to be expected? someone told me that SSHFS is an ugly hack... is this true?

09:27<themill>Jinx: which you can't do... only one of the MTAs can be on port 25

09:52<Tuplad>but I downloaded it as tar.gz archive from the cksfv site
09:53<themill>Tuplad: except that stdint.h is part of the standard libraries that you would normally install on your machine for building tools.
09:53<Tuplad>themill: ah I see how it works

14:09<maxb>Are you sure the dvds contain the entire package set?
14:09<maui_>nope...thats why i ask
14:09<maxb>if so, you could just grab the combined metadata files from the net
14:09<maui_>it should be enough for basic graphical clients
14:10<maxb>I'd be tempted to look at something like apt-proxy, and seed it with the contents of the dvds. That way it can download the metadata, and any missing packages when they are first requested

15:05<kop>MDC__ : When I've had to route multicast I've used mrouted. (But then I decided it was more trouble than it's worth and just turned off multicast routing anyhow.)
15:05<themill>petterson: ssh-copy-id is a script that tries to log in to the machine using your password and then copy the key across so you can then log in with only the key (and no passwd) from them on. To use ssh-copy-id, you need to be able to log in with a passwd. (The script dies at line 26 when it can't log on with a password)
15:06<themill>petterson: You can either re-enable passwd logins for a sec to to this, or instead of using ssh-copy-id, use: cat /media/usb0/key/ >> ~/.ssh/authorized_keys

15:58<Woet>jthomas: i got a few SSH users on there
15:58<jthomas>with sudo ?
15:58<Woet>but the problem is, I cant access SSH
15:58<maxb>There's still the "approval of security updates" issue, though?
15:58<jthomas>log in as them and run "sudo su" and you're root.
15:58<Woet>its allowusers on root
15:58<themill>Woet: do they have the ability to do anything via sudo or only a few things?
15:58<Cyorxamp>pablo, the swirl can be used wherever you like as can the debian name which I don't think is a trademark
15:58<Woet>themill: only a few things, and I wont be able to login into SSH for other users then root
15:59<Cyorxamp>pablo: gnuzilla and debian both thought of making a 'free firefox' at the same time - they haven't merged their efforts

17:41<dpkg>etch->lenny is probably First, see <apt-listbugs> and lenny release notes. Edit sources.list (# editor /etc/apt/sources.list), change all non-local mentions of 'etch' or 'stable' to 'lenny'. Save the file, `aptitude update` and `aptitude dist-upgrade`. Also consider subscribing to debian-devel-announce (ask me about <d-d-a>) to be aware of what developments are happening.
17:41<darac>Ah. I think the KDE debconf interface is at fault.

19:21<dondelelcaro>cabinets are generally 40-44U high

19:22-!-mode/#debian [+l 352] by debhelper
19:22<dondelelcaro>sander: yes, because towers require shelves, and aren't rackable
19:22<sander>Whats shelves?
19:22<abrotman>or the tower can be mounted sideways .. which is probably 4U or something depending on the size
19:23<dondelelcaro>abrotman: which still requires a shelf
19:23<dondelelcaro>(since very few towers are intrinsicly rackable)
19:23<abrotman>some are .. but yeah
19:24<sander>Do you guys think it means.. that if I get eg. 10x1u servers.. then I only have to pay for 1 tower?
19:25<dondelelcaro>sander: no.
19:25<dondelelcaro>sander: they're just renting space to you; furthermore, if you need 10U, then it's generally cheaper to get a cabinet of your own

22:36<Supaplex>my 3 year old ibook has 100gb. :)
22:37<abrotman>and it cost you four times as much :)
22:37<windio00>Supaplex, yeah so does my 5 t40
22:37-!-muammar [muammar@] has joined #debian
22:38<Supaplex>my ibook didn't cost me a thing, and I paid $99 for the 100gb harddisk.
22:38<windio00>apple is giving them away? cool
22:39<Supaplex>nope. the seller waited so long to ship, I got my $$$ refunded via a charge back. after pestering the district attorney a little, it still didn't show up after two months. I gave up. days later I received it, and was unable to contact the seller. I guess it's a gift. :P
22:41<windio00>so in fairness, it is only 2.75 years
22:41<Supaplex>I'm estimating. I'm too lazy to look at the actual records.
22:42<windio00>i think my thinkpad t40 has a video issue, the screen goes black after 2 min - 5 min
