00:11<Lounge>ok there's some issues i'm having and need some input on /tmp encrypted
00:11-!-Brownout [] has joined #debian
00:12<Lounge>my problem is not encrypting /tmp, the problem is chmod 1117
00:12<Lounge>for some reason the system isn't chmodding the tmp and as a result, i can't login with my account
00:13<Lounge>is there a way to get the system to chmod 1117 the encrypted /tmp so i can get my acct logged in where it can write what it needs to tmp?
00:14<Lounge>otherwise its returning a permission denied

06:59-!-SiCuTDeUx [~workstati@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
07:01<sheldonh>stephen: ha! then there's hope. it doesn't offer you RAID configuration until you've marked partitions as phsyical volumes for RAID
07:01<Nyaa>Because I have thousands of lines of conf files that I would rather not adapt to the structure.
07:01-!-bluebirch [] has quit [Quit: Lost terminal]
07:02<sheldonh>Nyaa: it's fine. just make sure that a) a file called /etc/apache2/apache2.conf is left in the way for later upgrades, and b) your sysadmins are smart enough to carefully review config change requests during dist-upgrades later
07:03<sheldonh>Nyaa: that said, i've found it more useful to force my sysadmins to migrate configs to the platform in use (they've now had to migrate a crusty old CMS through 3 platforms)
07:03<Nyaa>Yeah, well, it doesn't really matter if apache2.conf and httpd.conf are changed. Those are easy to fix. I could just create an "all" site that has all my old stuff.
07:04<Nyaa>...and use that in the Debian structure. Should work fine...
07:04<Nyaa>I have a few Directory settings in the main conf though.
07:04<sheldonh>Nyaa: that's what hurts us too :)
07:05<Nyaa>I guess copypaste will be my friend.
07:05<sheldonh>Nyaa: does /etc/apache2/conf.d not help for those?
07:05<Nyaa>I guess I could put them there as well. Right now they're part of the main conf.
07:06<Nyaa>I like to categorize by setting type instead of by site. Directory settings, virtual host settings, etc.
07:06<sheldonh>Nyaa: one small, well-tested change at a time :)
07:06-!-lemagoup [] has joined #debian
07:07<Nyaa>OK, on to the next one...
07:08<Nyaa>I'll get KVMoIP access from my host in order to set up RAID 1 without having to break a sweat. Should I bother going through the "set-up-degraded-RAID1-on-the-second-disk" or should I just reinstall the whole system? It's vanilla right now.
07:08<sheldonh>can dupload.conf specify no mail to be sent for a specific host?
07:08<Nyaa>No /boot partition was set up so I thought I might as well add that if I get to reinstall it all.

07:10<sheldonh>Nyaa: probably quicker to reinstall
07:11<Nyaa>Yeah, thought so.
07:11<sheldonh>Nyaa: fwiw, consider doing your single-disk installs as degraded raid1 array installs in future. then you don't have to worry about this issue :)
07:11<Nyaa>The whole "copy from disk 1 to disk 2, reboot from disk 2, add disk 1" business seems tedious and a bit unsafe.
07:12<sheldonh>Nyaa: it's never gronked on me before, but that proves nothing
07:12<Nyaa>Yeah, well, the problem was that my previous server broke down (they blamed FreeBSD but that seems unlikely since they failed to install Debian on it afterwards) and they "didn't have time" to add the second disk.
07:12<sheldonh>Nyaa: up until yesterday afternoon, my experience with sid "proved" that sid is perfect, reliable, problem-free. and then :)
07:13<Nyaa>I was told I'm getting my second disk today, along with KVMoIP access and a Debian disc in the tray.

08:31<mordy_>usually i don't pay much attention to partitions. it's true - you don't pay attention to partitoning except at installation time. once oyu've got a working install, you can't really partition without screwing evertyhing up
08:31<hypnotic>mordy: gparted can be very inefficient (a little bit autistic) which increases your risk at data loss in the case of power failure
08:32<hypnotic>cant understand if u want to move a 200 gb partition 10 gb to the left why everything should be moved (instead of only the 10gb of surplus)
08:33<mordy_>hehe, i work with smaller partitions
08:34<hypnotic>me 2 but only for my system

08:40<q0q>on sid I mean
08:41<hypnotic>did you see reports on the effectiveness of the recent devmapper updates?
08:41<hypnotic>i had it on lenny

08:42<dpkg>Repeat after me: Sid is NOT AN UPGRADE! Sid is meant for developers and testers, so stay away from it if you're neither. Use <stable> or <testing> instead.
08:42<hypnotic>it occured with lenny i386, lenny amd64 and sid i386, with the old devmapper and with the 2 new ones from the last 3 days
08:42<hypnotic>testing is my main system
08:42<hypnotic>sid is just for fun
08:43<hypnotic>but was curious if it would sove the problem, but it didnt

08:47<hypnotic>hmm normally I use synaptic
08:47<abrotman>premier ?
08:47<sheldonh>hypnotic: i think dist-upgrade is being renamed to full-upgrade
08:47<abrotman>it's already been renamed in lenny/sid
08:47<abrotman>or aliased .. whatever
08:47<sheldonh>abrotman: premier adj, first in rank or degree
08:47<hypnotic>what is renamed?
08:47<abrotman>sheldonh: i' disagree
08:48<sheldonh>abrotman: of course :)
08:48<abrotman>sheldonh: it can introduce changes you may not want on stable
08:48<abrotman>such as kernel ABI changes
08:48<abrotman>hypnotic: aptitude upgrade and aptitude dist-upgrade .. now aptitude safe-upgrade and aptitude full-upgrade .. or something like that
08:49<sheldonh>abrotman: so you prefer safe-upgrade?
08:49<abrotman>sheldonh: on stable? you probably shouldn't blindly dist-upgrade
08:49<hypnotic>aha well i never used aptitude, only apt-get
08:49<abrotman>you should at least understnad why something is being held-back on stable
08:49<sheldonh>abrotman: well, you shouldn't do _anything_ blindly :)
08:49<abrotman>you know what i mean darn it!
08:50<hypnotic>how can you dist-upgrade without upgrading you distro?
08:50<sheldonh>hypnotic: don't touch /etc/apt/sources.list
08:50<abrotman>hypnotic: if the release structure hasn't changed(such as lenny has been released) and you haven't changed your sources.list .. it won't upgrade your distro
08:51<hypnotic>if i understand correctly there are 3 things to upgrade/update: your packagelist, your packages and your distro
08:51<sheldonh>hypnotic: i think you need to read the aptitude manual page's description of dist-upgrade/full-upgrade before proceeding :)

08:53<hypnotic>isnt this more a kde question than a mint question?
08:53<abrotman>no .. it's a mint question
08:53<hypnotic>or gnome, xfce etc
08:53<abrotman>we have no idea how they maintain their system languages

12:09<fxiny>burn ? wt4x !
12:09<snogglethorpe>mordy: hmm
12:10<snogglethorpe>i bought a system today, and a usb stick :-)

12:10<snogglethorpe>usb sticks are amzaingly cheap these days if you get a slow one
12:10<mordy>zcat tells me it's not in zip format
12:10<snogglethorpe>hmm what's the file name?
12:11<mordy>snoggle, .iso
12:11<snogglethorpe>mordy: ah
12:11<snogglethorpe>that's not what you zcat though
12:11<qq>zcat boot.img.gz > /dev/sda
12:11<snogglethorpe>you zcat the 'boot image'
12:11<qq>not iso
12:11<mordy>qq - i've seen that so many times it's coming out of my ears
12:11<snogglethorpe>mordy: what did you use to download "boot.img.gz"?
12:11<mordy>i'm using a custom installer that i downloaded because i've got a gbit ethernet
12:12<mordy>snoggle - zcat
12:12<mordy>you mean browser/manager? i've tried with kget and opera
12:12<snogglethorpe>no, how did you write that file to disk?
12:12<mordy>zcat boot.img.gz > /dev/sda
12:12<qq> la documentation considèrent qu'on prépare la clé sur un système du MÊME TYPE que la machine sur laquelle nous voulons démarrer la Debian
12:12<snogglethorpe>mordy: cause some old web browsers would "uncompress" the file automatically, without removing the ".gz"
12:12<mordy>snoggle - it boots fine - you know my problem
12:12<snogglethorpe>mordy: ok
12:12<mordy>no, this is an iso
12:13<snogglethorpe>mordy: right ok
12:13<snogglethorpe>so you did the mount and then you copied on the .iso
12:13<mordy>ahh.. i should do that?
12:13<snogglethorpe>mount /dev/sda /mnt
12:13<snogglethorpe>cp /tmp/whatever.iso /mnt
12:13<snogglethorpe>umount /tmp
12:13-!-newsense [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
12:13<snogglethorpe>[that's on the old system]

12:16<mordy>snoggle - it's bad practice, but i pretty much do everything as root

12:20<mordy>ok -
12:20<snogglethorpe>also, are you following these instructions:
12:20<mordy>yes yes yes yes
12:20<mordy>but i'm trying something different - i've tried that - but i get the can't find iso error
12:20<snogglethorpe>which option are you using, the "easy" way or the "flexible" way?
12:20<mordy>you know -what iw as complainign about yesterday
12:21-!-ircMonkey [] has joined #debian
12:21<snogglethorpe>mordy: yeah I know
12:21<mordy>i've tried both - although i find the 'flexible' way easier than the 'easy' way

12:21-!-complexity [] has joined #debian
12:22<mordy>snoggle - know what? let's start again from the beginning
12:22<mordy>we'll do a step by step comparison and see what happens
12:22<snogglethorpe>mordy: well i'm doing the same thing right now, modul my lack of disk space to dowload the .iso
12:22<snogglethorpe>trying to free up some disk space right now
12:22<mordy>snoggle - for now let's just use foo.iso
12:23<snogglethorpe>but i still need to finish building the hwardware so I can't actually test anything for a couple of hours probably
12:23<mordy>if it's a bad iso, it will complain - my problem si that it doesn't find the iso
12:23<snogglethorpe>you might try mounting the iso on the _old_ system, using a loopback mount
12:23<snogglethorpe>and that way you can see if the image is bad or not
12:23<mordy>yeah, it works - i haven't had an iso problem
12:24<mordy>i think there's a quick workaround - i could probabl;y make a custom installer and have it load files from the usb without actually looking for an iso - but i don't know what needs to be done
12:24<snogglethorpe>and are you using etch or lenny installer (before you were using etch I think)
12:24<mordy>i've tried both - but both ahve the same proble,

12:35-!-ircMonkey [] has quit [Quit: Leaving.]
12:36<snogglethorpe>mordy: I think you should stop trying to screw around with partitioning and just use the entire device, as the instructions say
12:37<snogglethorpe>mordy: the above zcat is going to trash the partition table anyway
12:37<mordy>snogglethorpe - i used the entire device - the reason there are four partitions, from what i've read, is that it wants to emulate a zip drive, wherein the primry and bootable partition is the fourth one
12:38-!-dirk [] has joined #debian
12:38-!-dirk [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
12:38<mordy>snogglethorpe: in other words, the partioning now is a result of the zcat - since i zcat-ed to the device itself, (dev/sda) and not to a particular partition (e.g. /dev/sda*)
12:39<snogglethorpe>but in that transcript, you never actually mount the whole device
12:39<snogglethorpe>in the instructions it just says "mount /dev/sda /mnt"
12:39<snogglethorpe>(no partition)
12:39<snogglethorpe>and when I tried it, only the whole-device mount worked
12:39<mordy>let me try again then

14:51<mordy>enforcer - it's a pain indeed
14:51<mordy>i had that same error. forgot what i did to fix it -
14:52<mordy>i think what you need to do is comment out your backports, entirely remove libfuse, install libfuse from the offficial packages, then install ntfs-3g
14:52<mordy>(before installing ntfs-3g, make sure to de-comment your backport)

14:53<mordy>err.. sorry - i didn't pay attention - install libfuse then - from backports
14:54<mordy>use apt-get install -t etch-stable libfuse2
14:54<mordy>not sure about the syntax, but that's the idea
14:55<mordy>anyway - i've got the logs from the installer - - i can't seem to see anything abnormal about them

16:48<EricB>mysql works fine on 64bit
16:49<Nyaa>This ISP is so stupid though. They put an ia64 disc in the tray and expected me to install with that one. Xeon X3350 CPU. Way to go.
16:49<sheldonh>Nyaa: correct. non-fringe functionality is usually just as reliable on the 64bit platforms
16:49<sheldonh>Nyaa: you run into the odd boggle. spent a few hours on an nfsv4 incompatibility on the amd64 port 2 weeks ago
16:50<Nyaa>I know about my applications' stability under 64-bit since I've used them with FreeBSD on lots of machines. I was mostly curious about Debian's state. I remember that not so long ago amd64 wasn't officially supported.
16:51<Nyaa>This box will operate independently. RAM-disk is about the most esoteric thing it will use.
16:51<sheldonh>Nyaa: does such a small performance gain really matter?

18:27<dpkg>After hibernation, you can load back into memory as much as possible from swap and also load files back into the kernel's file cache to help reduce the disk thrashing that occurs when waking up after suspend-to-disk: cat `cat /proc/[0-9]*/maps | grep / | sed 's:.* /:/:' | grep -v /dev | sort -u` > /dev/null

19:43<enouf>is /media/mp3 owned by your user:group ? i chown my mount points

20:53<Vi^3PirePengy>on a full size lappie and my eee
20:53<caffn>48c on hd is not bad
20:54*caffn still wants to buy an eee
20:54<drzel>proc temp is between 50 and 67 depending on load
20:54<greenranch>evening all, I love Debian : ) anyone know what packages would be like a sat act type study
20:54<drzel>that seems normal, I guess
20:55<drzel>kde4 !

20:55<caffn>drzel > like i said, if it's a fairly modern computer it will shutdown whenever it gets too hot. So you might try to stress the pc as much as you can, and see if it holds up. If yes > all ok. If no > time to investigate :)
20:55<xbj9000>firstlook I would guess Knoppix live linux would have those types of tools

20:57<xbj9000>I'm still waiting for Wolvix to boot in a laptop with 48mb ram
20:57<caffn>Perhaps lenny understands how to shutdown the fans :D
20:59<Vi^3PirePengy>kde has a flashcard program

21:02<caffn>Yeah, didnt seen it before
21:03*caffn wonders why
21:03<drzel>anybody tried gpg with kmail from kde4 ? It doesnt work and I dont know if I configured something wrong or if its a bug...
21:03<xbj9000>some people complain about it's Via CPU
21:03<caffn>Hm, it is pretty expensive..
21:04<xbj9000>but I'm sure it's fast enough, I'm still using a Pentium II

21:06<mordy_>hehe, i'm trying to install debian on this msi wind
21:07<caffn>Yeah, true
21:07<mordy_>msi wind is a pos - but it's cheap
21:07<xbj9000>caffn you could get a new Thinkpad with SuSe preloaded and save a little money
21:07<mordy_>caffn - get one of those sony vgn models - they're lovely
21:07<mordy_>wonderful screens
21:07<caffn>Hm.. Not sure of they sell ANY pc (except the eee) with linux in the netherlands ;D
21:07<mordy_>ibms are always more expensive
21:07<caffn>Sonys are nice
21:07<xbj9000>I just set up a new Thinkpad for someone, no issues
21:07<mordy_>lol caffn
21:08<mordy_>ibm machines are horses- but so are older hp booktops
21:08<xbj9000>on the lenovo site you can find some models with SuSe
21:08<mordy_>or deskbooks
21:08<Vi^3PirePengy>i have a lenovo 3000 c200 that works great with lenny
21:08<greenranch>I have found debian to be very light in resource usage, anyone known of some opensource benchmarks, I would like to buy with price performance
21:09<mordy_>greenranch, i think lenny has one preinstalled
21:09<Vi^3PirePengy>and of course my eee works great with the eee repos
21:09<caffn>Hm, yeah, lenovo = ibm = good.. Ghehe
21:09<Vi^3PirePengy>i drool over the x300 64gb ssd with 10 hr battery life

21:10<mordy_>caffn - good thing about the msi wind though is that it's durable
21:10<xbj9000>although this old one that's actually an IBM and not Lenovo has a good screen
21:11<mordy_>it's not flimsy - what's bad about is that it uses a 2.5 drive - which is absurd
21:11-!-FirstLook [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
21:11<mordy_>i think if msi put their act together, they could make a much lighter and better laptop for a bit more money - but it would be much more popular
21:12<mordy_>the only thing flimsy about the msi wind are its components - not the case :D
21:12<mordy_>and the keyboard is downright horrible

21:13<mordy_>can i just cancel it in the middle?

21:20<xbj9000>'resource temporarily unavailable' it always says

21:20<mordy_>snoggle - hasn't gone any further
21:20-!-FirstLook [] has joined #debian
21:21<mordy_>snoggle - i've figured that the target hd is messing up the installation
21:21<snogglethorpe>mordy_: i built my hardware and have been doing the installation
21:21<snogglethorpe>mordy_: well, the installer boots, and gets as far as the menu, but then I get a weird error when it's looking for the .iso
21:22<snogglethorpe>mordy_: it says something like "Failed to copy files from ..."
21:22<drzel>is this a usb stick install?
21:22<snogglethorpe>drzel: yeah
21:22<FirstLook>sorry i got disconnected, anyone have any info on cacheing
21:22<drzel>same with me, i guess the usb image is broken
21:22<mordy_>snoggle - cmp the isos?
21:23<snogglethorpe>mordy_: well the thing is, if I start a sub-shell, and look around, it becomes clear that it _has_ successfully mounted the iso image on /cdrom
21:23<drzel>I burnt a CD, even though I just bought the USB-Stick to not have to
21:23<mordy_>it could just be a bad iso or a version mismatch
21:23<mordy_>it's not the case by me though
21:23<snogglethorpe>and the stuff in /cdrom looks "ok" as far as I can tell (I honestly don't know what's supposed to be in the .iso)
21:24<mordy_>this is a debian iso? official?
21:24<drzel>mordy you managed an Usb-install?
21:24<snogglethorpe>mordy_: lenny beta 2

21:25<snogglethorpe>it looks like maybe some people seem to have unmounted /cdrom in a subshell, and that caused thinigs to work...?
21:25<mordy_>snogglethorpe - zcat works, otherwise it doesn't
21:25<mordy_>snoggle - i'm trying to copy the iso to the target hd
21:25<mordy_>is your target hd blank?
21:25<snogglethorpe>mordy_: so the mount (on th eold system) doesn't work? "mount -t vfat /dev/sda /mnt"?
21:25<mordy_>snoggle - it works
21:25<snogglethorpe>mordy_: it's a completely new hard drive, just removed from the sealed plastic bag, so...
21:26<snogglethorpe>[dunno what they put on new hard drives actually]
21:26<snogglethorpe>mordy_: so after you do that mount, what goes wrong?
21:26<snogglethorpe>mordy_: do you just copy the iso there?
21:26<Vi^3PirePengy>ive read that kde4.1 might make lenny... is this true or just someones fantasy
21:26<mordy_>snoggle - i'm trying to
21:26<snogglethorpe>mordy_: and what happens?
21:26<mordy_>well, permission denied, device busy etc.
21:26<snogglethorpe>like "cp /tmp/blah-blah.iso /mnt"
21:27<snogglethorpe>mordy_: [doing as root, of coruse...]
21:27<mordy_>"read only filersystem
21:27<snogglethorpe>mordy_: does dmesg show anything interesting?
21:27<snogglethorpe>maybe that usb stick is just fucked?
21:27<snogglethorpe>i head seriously no problems at that stage
21:27<mordy_>snoggle - no -it works when i zcat it
21:28<snogglethorpe>[even though I'm mounting it over a usb 1.1 connection]

21:33<snogglethorpe>mordy_: what did that change?
21:33<snogglethorpe>how weird
21:33<mordy_>snoggle - somehow the installer confuses the disk with the usb

21:35<snogglethorpe>how stupid
21:35<mordy_>snoggle - here's how i confirmed this
21:36<mordy_>snoggle - try the installation again - don't change anything
21:36-!-drzel [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
21:36<mordy_>open a console and cd to /hd-media
21:36<mordy_>if it's working properly, you should find your *USB*'s contents there
21:37<mordy_>and if it's not working properly, then you should find your HD on there
21:37<snogglethorpe>actually I found the usb contents there when I looked before
21:37<mordy_>then your problem is not mine :(
21:37<snogglethorpe>mordy_: but then it failed at the _next_ sarge...
21:37<snogglethorpe>mordy_: so which .iso did you use?
21:38-!-nwerneck [] has joined #debian
21:38<mordy_>snoggle - i'm using the netinst
21:38-!-allisterb [] has joined #debian
21:38<mordy_>now i'll try with a full cd
21:38<snogglethorpe>mordy_: for lenny beta 2?
21:38<mordy_>no, this is etch
21:38<mordy_>should i install lenny?
21:38<snogglethorpe>mordy_: well lenny's what I'm having probs with so...
21:38<mordy_>hehe, this is a msi windblower
21:38<snogglethorpe>mordy_: you can just install etch, and upgrade to lenny over the net
21:38<mordy_>snoggle - if it's a file-copy error then it's just a bad iso
21:38<mordy_>or an installation bug within the code
21:39<mordy_>but if that's the case, it would have been reported by many people
21:39<snogglethorpe>mordy_: the latter may actually be the case :-)
21:39*mordy_ feels like a jeenyis now
21:39<snogglethorpe>i wonder if they test usb installs...
21:40<mordy_>snoggle - i think it's a novelty for most people
21:40<nwerneck>Hello there. Any predictions for linux 2.6.26 getting in unstable?
21:40<snogglethorpe>since judging from this session, it's becoming a popular option
21:40<mordy_>snoggle - i think many people try the netinstall
21:40<mordy_>and besides, the zcat works just fine - the porblem i encountered was when i tried manually loading the installation files
21:41<mordy_>hehe, i'm wondering if there's somewhere i can place this little bit of info
21:41<mordy_>although i shouldn't get excited yet
21:42<mordy_>now the next thing i'll be annoying you about is a remote desktop solution :(

21:59<mordy_>snoggle - this is still weird though
21:59<snogglethorpe>didn't install correct.y?
22:00<mordy_>so far so good - but i figure that if i'd use 'guided' mode it would install debian on my USB
22:00<mordy_>whcih is pretty cool if you think about it - but still weird
22:01<mordy_>meh,s cratch that - but it's still weird in that it's asking me to install on usb
22:02<snogglethorpe>wait, it's installying on your _usb stick_?
22:02<snogglethorpe>presumably that's not what you want, right?
22:02<mordy_>snoggle - it could- but it's listing my usb stick as an option
22:02<snogglethorpe>mordy_: oh ic
22:02<mordy_>it shouldn't be doing that - should it?
22:02<snogglethorpe>hmm i guess they're just enumerating all block devices or something
22:02<snogglethorpe>i wonder if it would do anything useful?
22:02<mordy_>yeah, and it's mounted on SCSI
22:03<mordy_>i don't think this is SCSI
22:03<snogglethorpe>mordy_: usb uses the scsi infrastructure in the kernel apaprently
22:03<snogglethorpe>but it's not "really" scsi
22:03<mordy_>snoggle - but should my HD use that as well?
22:03<mordy_>SCSI isn't SATA - right? i don't know much about this stuff
22:03<snogglethorpe>mordy_: my impression is that sata _also_ does that...
22:04<snogglethorpe>mordy_: scsi isn't sata

22:28<snogglethorpe>mordy_: so if you want a windows partition, you need to make it for real

22:34<mordy_>i just want 5 GB or so for windoze
22:34<qq>use virtualbox for it
22:35<snogglethorpe>mordy_: basically LVM takes "PVs" (physical volumes), which can be normal disk partitions etc, and splits the PVs up into "LVs" (logical volumes), which is what debian will see
22:35<snogglethorpe>mordy_: er, well that's my understanding anyway
22:35<snogglethorpe>mordy_: correct for terminology abuse as necessary
22:35<mordy_>i'm reading dpkg's links on lvm - makes sense

22:36-!-yann [~yann@] has joined #debian
22:36<snogglethorpe>mordy_: and LVM takes off some of the pressure by letting you more easily change things later if you screw up

22:38-!-Mobil [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
22:38<mordy_>snoggle - i also get the impression that LVM is more of an os-level rather than disk-level management - so i don't really ever have to change my disk-level configuration
22:38<mordy_>which isn't too healthy for the HD either - and is slow and annoying
22:39<mordy_>i like that. i'm just trying to figure out how i can only make it use 75GB
22:39<snogglethorpe>mordy_: just make a 75GB partition and point LVM at that
22:39<snogglethorpe>I think it wants another real partition for the /boot too
22:39<mordy_>yes, 255MB
22:40<qq>and swap ?
22:41<mordy_>can i have multiple primary partitions?

22:45<kingsley>Is a kernel bug stack trace?

22:46<snogglethorpe>qq: I mean, as long as modern kernels all have lvm support, it seems relatively painless
22:47<mordy_>hmm... is there any fragmentation on linux? or is that only in windoze
22:47<snogglethorpe>mordy_: the concept exists, I guess, but typically it doens't seem to be much of a problem
22:49<mordy_>i'm lost. what's the best setup to ensure that i can install and run windoze on this thing?
22:49<qq>snogglethorpe: it's my thought , and practice
22:49<qq>first install windoze
22:50<qq>mordy_: ^^^^
22:50<snogglethorpe>qq: sure, i understand, but I'm trying to understand the details, ... since "to lvm or not to lvm" is something I need to decide
22:51<mordy_>qq: to install windoze is even a greater pain than to install linux - don't forget i have no CD
22:51<mordy_>of course i could try to copy the windoze CD to my stick

23:22<Simon43>you'll get a file you write with cat or dd to the stick
23:22<Simon43>like you did it in the first place with the installer "boot.img.gz" or something like that
23:23<snogglethorpe>Simon43: yeah

23:24<mordy_>ok.. "installing the base system"
23:24*mordy_ holds breath
23:26<mordy_>i hope CD1 contains gnome at least
23:26<snogglethorpe>hope you had on your flack vest
23:27<snogglethorpe>qq: i agree
23:27<mordy_> indeed
23:28<mordy_>hehe, you don't realize how crappy netinstall is once you do local
23:28<mordy_>and especially from USB - which is really fast
23:29<qq>yeah took you 2 days
23:29<mordy_>qq: i learned a lot of things in those two days
23:30<qq>take *
23:30<mordy_>if i wanted an easy-to-use os, i'd stick with xp
23:31<mordy_>what i like about linux is that i'm spending more time looking up documentation than looking up to see "which program can i download that would let me do x"
23:32<snogglethorpe>mordy_: indeed
23:33<qq>it's a scope

23:33<snogglethorpe>the thing about windows <etc>, is that they try to hide all the internals ... which can be good in some cases, but very bad in others
23:33<mordy_>now how do i get x to work with a 1280x600 resolution?
23:33<snogglethorpe>mordy_: is it lcd ?
23:34<snogglethorpe>doesn't X auto-detect that these days?
23:34<mordy_>yeah, it's this msi wind
23:34<mordy_>snoggle - it does - but i'm worried that it's not compatible
23:34<mordy_>it's a pretty crappy piece anyway - ui'm mainly planning to use it as a 'thin' client for the compuiter i'm using now
23:34<snogglethorpe>mordy_: seems like the worst that happens is you need to hit Ctl-Alt-F1 to switch back to the text console
23:35<mordy_>although i wish there was a way to get linux on my pda
23:35<snogglethorpe>mordy_: yeah I'd like to get some laptop like that too
23:35<snogglethorpe>mordy_: "big" laptops are ... too big
23:35<mordy_>you can find them on ebay

23:36<mordy_>the thing i never understood is where the graphic rendering takes place
23:36<caffn>10/12 inch are ok
23:36<mordy_>yeah, mine is 10/12 inch - but is horribly made
23:36<mordy_>MSI could have included a sdd and a better and thinner LCD - and it wouldn't raise the cost of the laptop by much
23:36<snogglethorpe>mordy_: hmm that's the reason I like buying in stores ... :-)
23:37<mordy_>snogglethorpe - i hate stores. pushy and deceiving salespeopel

23:43<snogglethorpe>"we saved 1 penny by using this insane highly proprietary undocumented network chip!"
23:43<mordy_>yeah, it's the NIC that counts
23:43<mordy_>nah, it's realtek - but gigabit
23:43<snogglethorpe>isn't realtek generally ok?
23:43<mordy_>i need to test it - i haven't plugged it in - i'm still in bed
23:44<snogglethorpe>i guess that's one advantage of laptop

23:50<mordy_>gah, no screens found
