00:39<Zorro>I'm having a sound problem. Some applications (Sauerbraten, Quake 3) seem to use sound fine, but many others dont (media players, ect). In gnome, I go to system-preferences-sound and all of the sound tests fail. does anyone have any suggestions?

00:45<RIVE>Hi, good evening.
00:47-!-Shimei|Portable [Shimei|] has joined #debian
00:47-!-Pryon [] has joined #debian
00:48<Zorro>esd is running. apparently alsaconf fixes the problem, but only until reboot :/
00:48-!-freealan [] has quit [Quit: leaving]
00:49<Zorro>the problem is that the soundcard is in use by another application, but that doesn't make sense, since it's like that from a fresh boot

00:56<Nemoder>Arthuza: try acpi-support
00:57-!-dmoerner [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
00:58<daniiel>soo, all of a sudden and for no apparent reason (no changes), my sound stopped working, my sound applications can't see my sound device either, any ideas?

01:01<dpkg>for sun RPC based services (like NFS and NIS). To disable it, simply remove the "portmap" package. But be careful, if you running NFS on a remote box, your box doesnt boot then...
01:02-!-Ttech [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
01:02<Zorro>daniiel, I may be having the same problem
01:04<Zorro>try running sudo alsaconf
01:04<Zorro>for me, it complains about the soundcard being in use somehow and that temporarily fixes it
01:06<daniiel>mine apparently isn't being seen as a device anymore

01:30<jm_>daniiel: what's the error then?
01:32<daniiel>it was working and just stopped, xfmedia, xfce4-volume-control won't list it in the devices; iceweasel no sound either

01:58<interbird>try cat some-pcm-file > /dev/dsp -- if that gives sound the card is recognized and subsystems like alsa and ... can be connected to it and even share it

02:02-!-cdlu [] has joined #debian
02:03<daniiel>ok, my speaker-test works, alsamixer sees my card but for some reason sound from applications won't play
02:03-!-ao2 [~u@2001:1418:117::1] has joined #debian
02:03<daniiel>and it did work earlier today.
02:03<jm_>gnome/kde apps?
02:03<cahoot>they ouptu to alsa? no esd or artsd blocking?
02:03<interbird>applications have preferences? like selecting stream to use ?
02:03<daniiel>xfce desktop
02:04<interbird>daniel: try xfce global settings for selecting device/stream
02:04<interbird>daniiel: try xfce global settings for selecting device/stream
02:05<jm_>check its sound settings
02:05<daniiel>xfce sound settings where you can choose device, has none available
02:05<daniiel>just the <default> which doesn't work
02:05<interbird>daniiel: xfce sound-deamon running ?
02:05<daniiel>it used to list the sound card
02:06<jm_>try with another user
02:06-!-vortex [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
02:07<daniiel>i did, i even created a new user
02:07<interbird>or just reboot; if your setup is quacky then it's best to see how things are after a fresh start; if not working still then we go tackle stuff bit-by-bit
02:07-!-freex [~user@] has joined #debian
02:07-!-chattr_ [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
02:08-!-daniiel [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
02:08<jm_>why would reboot oslve anything when sound works ...
02:08<interbird>jm: because of daemons conflicting on the device; dunno what he has loaded...
02:08-!-phillipsjk [router@] has joined #debian
02:09<jm_>interbird: doesn't make sense - in that case speaker-test would fail too
02:09-!-narcan [] has joined #debian
02:09<interbird>jm: no it would not because it bypasses alsa, esd,...
02:09-!-__iron [] has joined #debian
02:10-!-sysop [] has joined #debian
02:10<cahoot>it uses alsa - not bypass it
02:10<jm_>interbird: where are you getting these ideas from?
02:11<interbird>jm: experience ?
02:11<jm_>interbird: you must be kidding me -- speaker-test comes with alsa-utils
02:12-!-olaf [~olaf@] has joined #debian
02:12<interbird>jm_: let's not ague and see what a reboot does for daniiel, ok ? (I'm against reboot but i also know that for sound it can help; and there is no better test-bed than a clean slate)
02:13-!-daniiel [] has joined #debian

02:16-!-teratoma [10539@tsunami.OCF.Berkeley.EDU] has joined #debian
02:17<daniiel>still no
02:17<dondelelcaro>rebooting is almost never the answer
02:17<daniiel>i just noticed my memory usage is really high, one sec
02:18-!-wolfy [] has joined #debian
02:18<interbird>dondelelcaro: disagree and easy to say after daniiel's reply for the reboot not solving the prob
02:18-!-wolfy [] has left #debian []
02:19<interbird>daniiel: did you check your alsa-mixer? maybe it is muted and in async with the other filters
02:19<daniiel>something is using about 600MB of memory thats usually isn't used, and sounds not working..hmm
02:19<dondelelcaro>the only thing you should ever reboot for is to upgrade kernels; otherwise it's totally a waste of time
02:19<dondelelcaro>s/ever/& need/
02:19<jm_>or if you're using cisco vpn, disconnect it and want to reconnect again

02:20-!-daniiel [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
02:20-!-tralala [] has joined #debian
02:20<jm_>i really need to try vpnc in place of it one day
02:20-!-dres [] has joined #debian
02:20<interbird>dondelelcaro: bullshit; sometimes something hangs, like some browser-plugin, eating-up cpu and ctrl-alt-fx does not work
02:21<dondelelcaro>so you hit sysreq and kill it off
02:21-!-artefact [] has joined #debian
02:22<dondelelcaro>plus, you'll note that I said "should"; bugs obviously are not the normal mode of operation.
02:22<dondelelcaro>(and rebooting to debug is kind of silly)
02:22-!-ifvoid [] has joined #debian
02:23<interbird>can't be killed, even not with sysreq and network-interface also dies; that a hard shit and only a hard reset can overcome that. You must have experienced that one in your lifetime no ?
02:24<SledgY>interbird: Not on decent hardware
02:24<dondelelcaro>uh... a process that is running and cannot be killed? Haven't seen it recently.
02:24<interbird>define decent
02:24<SledgY>Intel Pro Nics
02:24<SledgY>I've not had anything like that happen in 5-6years
02:24<interbird>and how long a time do you run on that and how long a time u use debian ?
02:25<dondelelcaro>on loads of hardware, almost certainly longer than you have
02:25<SledgY>Debian's been my primary OS on desktop and server for 3-4 years
02:25<interbird>are you one of these lucky birds ? :-)
02:26<dondelelcaro>I've seen bugs, and I've run processes into swapping out, but it's pretty rare to run into that kind of problem
02:26<SledgY>Worst I usually have to do is hit Ctrl+Alt+Backspace to restart X
02:26<dondelelcaro>(and when you do, it's almost always a bug)
02:26-!-AutoMatriX [] has joined #debian
02:27<SledgY>Had some odd things on certain hardware, although was caused by a binary blob on a SunSparc machine
02:27<interbird>dondelelcaro: let's not get into "i show you my scars ... shit" -- if you can't confirm that shit happens even on debian then you have no scars...
02:28<dondelelcaro>interbird: it certainly can happen; it's just a bug. It's not something that "should" happen.
02:28<dondelelcaro>and regardless, having people reboot to debug things isn't terribly productive
02:28<dondelelcaro>(esp. in cases involving sound)
02:28<SledgY>Network manager is cause of most of my networking grief although that has improved greatly of late
02:29-!-edward_ [] has joined #debian
02:29<SledgY>dondelelcaro: Often I've found removing and reinserting a module fixes those kind of issues
02:29-!-daniiel [] has joined #debian
02:30<RIVE>I have little scars using Debian, but those are easy to cure,
02:30<SledgY>rather than having to do a reboot
02:30<dondelelcaro>SledgY: could be; depends on the particular issue
02:30<SledgY>Of course
02:30<daniiel>so i logged in as root in xfce, and sound workd, so this seems like a persissions issue
02:30<interbird>solving problems while there is something wrong underneath is not very productive too. so in the case of problem-solving, may it be debian, solaris, osx, os/2, windows, or whatever... if there is a problem, first thing is to reboot to get a clean slate, no ?
02:31-!-adema [~adema@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
02:31<dondelelcaro>interbird: no
02:31<jm_>daniiel: if that was the case alsamixer wouldn't work, neither would aplay
02:31<jm_>or speaker-test
02:31<dondelelcaro>!tell daniiel -about alsa checklist
02:31<interbird>what would you do then ?
02:31<dondelelcaro>daniiel: go through the checklist that dpkg told you
02:31<dondelelcaro>interbird: identify the problem and resolve it
02:32<RIVE>The problem is to identify the problem.
02:32<dondelelcaro>sure, which is the first thing that you do
02:32*phillipsjk in confused about wether his problems are crappy hardware, or poorly maintianed drivers for said hardware.
02:32<interbird>dondelelcaro: true; i understand you; i forgot to mention to make a snapshot of the prob situation for further analasys; true !
02:32<edward_>quick one.. : howcome if i run update-grub it changes my kernel path from root=..sda to hda ? whare is the mapping for the drives.. ?
02:32<dondelelcaro>phillipsjk: as a general rule, the answer is yes.
02:33<phillipsjk>dondelelcaro, that's what I thought :)
02:33<dondelelcaro>edward_: in the kopt line that's commented out
02:34-!-mhash [~mh@] has joined #debian
02:34<dondelelcaro>edward_: edit that line, then rerun update grub. [You should never edit the kernel lines between end default options and end debian automagic kernels list
02:34<edward_># kopt=root=/dev/hda1 ro
02:34<edward_>ok tnx
02:34<dondelelcaro>edward_: man update-grub; if you want more details
02:34<jm_>thank god that shit is not present with grub 2 anymore
02:35-!-maxb_ [] has joined #debian
02:35<dondelelcaro>phillipsjk: but if you actually tell us the problem and the symptoms, we may be able to tell you what the underlying problem actually is
02:35<dondelelcaro>(or point you to someone who can)
02:35<edward_>well... that sucks.. i had a few server I rebootd and did not came up and that was the problem.. te new kernel saw a sda and not a hda... so I edited the file and the servers came back up
02:35<daniiel>when you use adduser command, it doesn't include you in the audio group, which allows you to use sound?
02:36<dondelelcaro>daniiel: not by default, no
02:36<jm_>daniiel: only if you use it properly
02:36<daniiel>so thats my problem!
02:36<dondelelcaro>daniiel: edit /etc/adduser.conf and set it appropriately
02:36<jm_>edward_: yeah probably driver changed from using old IDE driver to libata PATA driver
02:36<dondelelcaro>(you're looking for EXTRA_GROUPS and ADD_EXTRA_GROUPS)
02:37<jm_>like I said, if permissions/group membership was a problem, alsamixer, aplay and speaker-test would not work
02:37<dondelelcaro>(which are helpfully there, but commented out)
02:37<dondelelcaro>jm_: I'm thinking that they worked as root, but not as a normal user
02:37<dondelelcaro>(since I don't see any real info in scrollback)
02:37<RIVE>dondelelcaro, if a change to UUID i grub to identify disk an partitions, is beter than use /dev/hda?? etc, etc?
02:37-!-daniiel [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
02:37<jm_>dondelelcaro: let's clarify
02:38<jm_>or not ;)
02:38<dondelelcaro>RIVE: probably better, but it shouldn't matter going forward
02:38<dondelelcaro>'course, I could be wrong, and /dev could change yet again
02:39<interbird>dondelelcaro: cool way to determine the problem; kudo's !
02:40<RIVE>Sorry for my poor english, is not my mother tongue.
02:40<dondelelcaro>RIVE: it's alright; you're understandable. [If we have problems, we'll ask for clarification.]
02:41<phillipsjk>Well, heavy use of the ISA SMC EtherEZ (smc-ultra driver) seems to make the (P166) computer unresponsive.
02:43-!-simonrvn [] has joined #debian
02:43<dondelelcaro>heh; I'd actually be surprised if that worked at all. It's probably a case of hardware design and the fact that no one runs that hardware anymore
02:43<dondelelcaro>so it could have bit-rotted away, and no one would have ever notices
02:43<jm_>phillipsjk: what happens when it gets unresponsive?
02:43-!-yvesC [~yves@] has joined #debian
02:44<phillipsjk>I also have problems with my pro audio specturm (16 bit ISA sound pre pnp) .. it works fine with win98...
02:45<phillipsjk>jm_ in X the focus does'nt work with the mouse.
02:45-!-yvesC [~yves@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
02:45<jm_>phillipsjk: ohh so the box doesn't die, but just becomes slow then?
02:47<jm_>yeah that's quite possible then, check if the driver has max_interrupt_work parameter
02:47<phillipsjk>I suspect IRQ contention, since I can't simply reproduce it with a large file transfer on the LAN.
02:47-!-kapil [] has joined #debian
02:48<phillipsjk>Streaming audio caused preblems, IIRC.
02:48<phillipsjk>(That is low bandwidth)

04:17<sthk>i had problems with the gcc but i already fix it
04:17<jm_>yang: the easiest is if they sell the stuff, but that has happened only once and never again, because it was too much work :P
04:17<jm_>no don't do that, do it the debian way
04:17<sthk>but now, it suppose that the installator installs nvidia drivers, but when i start the x doesnt up the x
04:18<yang>jm_: strange anyways, some companies do it, but probably it requires too much work as you said, and no real money.

04:57<ircaccount>Hi there. I'm trying to rebuild the Samba-3.0.24 source package in Debian 3.0/i386 stable with a few lines changed in the source code. The first time I run debuild -us -uc it's successful and outputs the .deb files for installation. If I then run debuild -us -uc again, it fails with QUILT_PATCHES=debian/patches quilt --quiltrc /dev/null pop -a -R || test $? = 2
04:57<ircaccount>Patch security-CVE-2008-1105.patch does not remove cleanly (refresh it or enforce with -f)
04:58<ircaccount>Google shows almost nothing on this one. if I make a new directory and start over with apt-get source samba I can run it just once more, but I'm wondering if there's a command to roll it back so I can run debuild more than once after each source code change?
04:58<infotron>ircaccount: oldstable isn't supported any longer
04:58<ircaccount>Oh hang on
04:58<ircaccount>I'm on 4.0 sorry
04:59<infotron>check or use reportbug
04:59<themill>3.0 isn't even oldstable. it's oldoldstable
05:00<themill>ircaccount: why are you building it twice?
05:00<ircaccount>Okay thanks will do - by the sound of it it's not just something basic I'm missing out then and it should be okay to run debuild repeatedly after changing perhaps one line of C code between each run? (I'm new to building packages from source.)
05:00<infotron>yes, and if one concluds oldstable isn't supported any longer, then one would surmise everything before it is also no longer maintained.

05:02<ircaccount>Oh I realise that, it's certainly not a problem with the package. I just thought (and maybe I'm wrong) that this mechanism is here to let me do exactly that - so that I can get the source for a package, change a few lines as needed, and then recompile
05:02<MartinVW>[cont] but it's mtime remains unchanged on 2008-04-14 06:52:14.000000000 +0200. The md raid is in sync, dmesg shows nothing unusual, and the memory was tested with memtest when we delivered the server. Any idea what could be going on here?

07:09<petemc>well, doesnt tell you the real problem, just thats its not time to try again
07:09<jm_>why would it mention smart host for receiving mail?
07:09<Xeross>well thats the log after sending mail
07:09<Xeross>so the sending fails
07:10<Xeross>does it mean the smart host isnt reachable ?
07:10<jm_>but you wrote it works
07:10<Xeross>i thought it did
07:10<jm_>yeah because it's so hard to check :P
07:10<Xeross>im a newb to mail on linux

07:13<jm_>are you using debian at all?

07:17<jm_>ask them?
07:17<jm_>that could very well by why you are having problems (port 25 blocked)
07:18<Xeross>i had kerio setup on an alternate port and using rollernet to redirect
07:18<Xeross>but cant find port option in the configuration wizard

12:34<buko>just another thing, I installed etch on a P3 laptop and on an AthlonXP (2500) desktop. On the laptop it installed the 686 kernel, but on the desktop (which is more powerfull) it installed the 486 kernel...

12:39<jackyf>buko: you are to install 686 kernel from repository

12:39<enouf>buko: there exists a -k7 kernel in etch especially for your Athlon
12:39<enouf>buko: the -686 will work, and -k7 versions are gone after etch
12:40<dpkg>k7 is, like, the generic model name for the series of AMD i386-compatible processors which begins with the "Athlon" and also includes the "Duron", "Thunderbird", "Sempron" and "Athlon XP" processors. It does not include the AMD64, X2, FX, Opteron (k8) family or the older K5 or K6 chips. Just use a 686 kernel in unstable, k7 kernels are out. see <k7 dropped>
12:41<buko>so I should just do "aptitude install linux-image-686" ?
12:41<enouf>yuo can - do apt-get update ; apt-cache show linux-image-*

12:53<chealer>buko: the CD probably has the 486 and 686 images only. when d-i saw that k7 was optimal for the PC, it must have fallen back to 486. I don't know if falling back to 686 would have been more optimal.

13:54<Flakk>sorry. still not entirely done. I deleted all the things. Have now an unallocated space. I am creatinf\g a new partition/, where will install etch. should it be Primary or Extended? (and then I will have the choice between ext 2 and 3)
13:55<enouf>Primary is always better , but depends how your disk is layed out prior
13:55<Flakk>the point is that I also have an XP partition which I will not touch
13:57-!-TMcTrain [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
13:58<enouf>one more word about partitions, i you go with standard msdos labeling (4 Primary only - or 3 +1 Ext'd) always make the Ext'd one as hda4/sda4 meaning lastly, after all 3 Primaries are made - then make the Ext'd to encompass rest of disk (wherein you create your logicals - however many you like)
13:58-!-bonsaiMonky [] has joined #debian
13:59<enouf>Flakk: if you must use more than 4 partitions - always make the 3 primaries 1st, then make hda4/sda4 as ext'd (to take up rest of disk space) and create the logicals hda5+ .. and only put crap in there you can wipe if you need to
14:00<enouf>Flakk: otherwise, if you need/want less than 4, make all primary
14:00-!-foxes [flash@] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
14:00<enouf>er 4 or less, with never a need for a 5th

14:01<Flakk>I will just tell you what I have.

14:02-!-HellTiger [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
14:03<enouf>and, so, make hda2 '/' (36G) , and hda3 swap (1G) - both primary - but let me ask - how much RAM, and how much is the most it can take?
14:04<Flakk>enouf: but I thought that etch installer will take care of swap itself, is not it true?
14:04<enouf>now, actually, it's better to make the hda2 the swap - (just invert the order) because it's closer to the outer part of the disk (faster)
14:05<enouf>Flakk: honestly, i forget - if it says so - trust that it'll leave room for it - see the installation guide ;-)
14:05<Flakk>RAM - actually I do not know ) let me try to find out

14:59<MadHag>thanks, I only need the first cd for install dont I
14:59<dondelelcaro>RTIBobV: so what you do is you write a wrapper script that gets shoved into /usr/bin or /usrlocal/bin which sets all that crap and then actually calls the program
14:59<MadHag>I can get what I want from the net afterwards
15:00<dondelelcaro>RTIBobV: though considering the env variables that are being set, that program reeks of bad design
15:00<stevecotton>Is it worth me writing this up properly (jidgo then bittorrent)?
15:01<stevecotton>yes, the first is the only one you need. Or even the netinst CD (smaller still).
15:01<RTIBobV>unfortunately i am not in control of the design. It is an industrial imaging pkg out of germany
15:01<dondelelcaro>RTIBobV: oh, you may not be... but it doesn't bode well for the underlying code quality.

17:14<dpkg>The reasons we hate polls are because: 1) they are a massive waste of IRC and bandwidth and screen real estate when asked in a 700 person channel. Did you want 700 answers? 2) They're often a prelude to isolating one helper and barraging him or her in /msg. BAD! 3) We don't care about Ubuntu, this is #debian

23:30<gord>twb, is there another way to obtain the real firefox through repos?
23:30<twb>gord: I don't know or care.
23:31<gord>what browser would you recommend?
23:31<twb>gord: for what purpose?
23:31<gord>lightweight, fast browsing, as barebones as possible
23:31<gord>I hate clutter
23:31<twb>Personally, I use w3m, emacs-w3m and html2ps regularly.
23:32<twb>I use midori nearly regularly, and very occasionally I use opera or firefox.
23:32<twb>Historically I've also used netsurf and dillo, but I think midori is making faster progress than netsurf. Dillo is completely dead.

23:32<nsadmin>gord: debian legal got the impression they could not distribute firefox under that name
23:32<twb>gord: see, when you say "bare bones" I think you're full of shit. To you "bare bones" probably includes support for images, CSS, javascript, flash, plugins, and all manner of other silly shit.
23:32<twb>nsadmin: it's not an impression; it's the law.
23:32<craigevil>i like opera, i was a big firefox but the last update in sid borked several of my extensions
23:32<nsadmin>so perhaps, that's a "no" to your question
23:33-!-tdrusk [] has left #debian [Kopete 0.12.7 :]
23:33<gord>I used dillo and netsurf for a bit. I was impressed by the speed of dillo, and netsurf's lack of tabbed browsing really turned me off
23:33<nsadmin>twb: I'm not a lawyer; are you?
23:33<twb>nsadmin: I am not a lawyer.
23:33<nsadmin>so it's your impression :)
23:34<twb>nsadmin: it's not my impression. I'm repeating reliable secondary and tertiary sources; particularly Rick Moen (who has had legal training) and various debian-legal related documents.
23:36<SledgY>Firefox isn't in debian largely because it contains non-free items

23:36<qq->!why iceweasel
23:36<dpkg>Due to Mozilla logos licensing, Mozilla software isn't DFSG-free, so Debian distributes Mozilla software with different logos. One day Mozilla Corporation decided to revoke the agreement to let Debian use Mozilla trademarks, so Debian changed to non-trademarked product names. See for more information.
23:36<SledgY>it's name is trademarked as is it's logo
23:36<nsadmin>oh, ok... btw I was trying to do you the favor of covering your a** since it's my impression that making uncited comments of what the law is or is not could be construed as practicing law without a license
23:36<twb>Indeed; it's a trademark law issue, not a copyright or contract law issue.
23:36<gord>SledgY, so it's basically the exact same program with a different name and icon
23:36<SledgY>I believe so
23:37<twb>gord: correct.
23:37<nsadmin>but nevermind... you can cover your own if you want
23:37<twb>gord: all the stupidity, bloat and bugs from upstream are still there.
23:37<SledgY>Although it may have additional patches etc, has some different default settings
23:37<SledgY>overall it's pretty much the same
23:37-!-eleckttruss [] has joined #debian
23:39<gord>twb, I see, and to clarify my requirements for a browser, yes I would like CSS, Images, and flash. What I dont want is endless options for every possible adjustment, addition, preference a program can contain
23:40<twb>gord: I'd be obliged if you didn't refer to such requirements as "bare bones", then.
23:40<gord>bones, with a few muscles and ligaments
23:40<twb>flash is more like acne than ligaments

23:41<gord>unfortunately I need it for educational purposes
23:41<SledgY>what's wrong with ephany
23:41<gord>plus ted talks are awesome
23:41<twb>Ick, your school uses BlackboardTM or something?
23:41<twb>SledgY: it's webkit backend is flaky as hell
23:42<twb>SledgY: and obviously its gecko backend is... gecko.
23:42<SledgY>I've not had issues with Gecko
23:42<twb>gord: if you just want youtube bollocks, I hear you can do that with mplayer.
23:42<twb>SledgY: I have issues with it wanting to use up all my RAM.
23:42<twb>SledgY: but yeah, generally my problems with Firefox are in firefox, not gecko.
23:43<SledgY>I find it's usually plugins that eat ram
23:43<SledgY>and Ram is dirt cheap
23:43<twb>I used ephy when it got less annoying than galeon, but I dropped it for midori.
23:43<gord>I'm using epiphany right now
23:43<gord>I'll give midori a try though, thanks for the suggestion
23:43-!-path__ [] has joined #debian
23:44<twb>SledgY: I never use plugins, and I don't care how cheap RAM is; putting another 4GB in a $200 laptop just so I can browse a bloody webpage is outrageous.
23:44<twb>gord: note that if you're on Lenny, you'll need to upgrade libglib2.16 to avoid the segfault-on-every-page issue in midori.
23:44<nsadmin>4gb?? wow :) can I have it?
23:44<gord>twb, I am on Lenny, thanks for the heads up
23:44<twb>Full disclosure: I co-maintain the midori debian package.
23:45<nsadmin>what laptop can you put upwards of 4gb in?
23:45<twb>nsadmin: I've no idea. My laptop has 512MB.
23:45<gord>there must be a laptop with 4 ram slots out somewhere
23:45<twb>nsadmin: I really only need about 128MB for Emacs, except if I'm compiling locally.
23:45<SledgY>twb: I've not had ram issues with the latest builds of Iceweasel on my lappy, and it's only got 1GB
23:46<SledgY>with Lenny, on an eeepc
23:46<gord>SledgY, 10" ?
23:46<nsadmin>I would definitely like an amd64xN laptop with a few ram slots
23:46<gord>I was tempted to whip out my credit card when I saw one at my local computer shop
23:47<twb>Well, in any case, I only use GUI web browsers for webpages that are completely broken if you don't have javascript. For example: google code's and launchpad's BTS.
23:47<SledgY>gord: 701
23:47-!-numayeah [] has joined #debian
23:47<craigevil>icweasel runs just fine on my eee 701 with 1 gb of ram
23:47<gord>SledgY, you aren't bothered by the lack of screen space?
23:47<twb>gord: just be sure to buy the one with the extra disk, rather than the one with the Windows license.
23:47<SledgY>going to get a 901 soon (just for the extra display)

23:48<SledgY>oh and built in bluetooth
23:48<gord>SledgY, get the 1001 or whatever they're calling it
23:48<craigevil>you get used to the small screen and keyboard, the lightweight more than makes up for it, plus when im home i hook it up to my 19" monitor
23:48<SledgY>gord: pass, don't want a HD
23:48<gord>SledgY, I thought it was ssd?
23:49<SledgY>the 1001 have HDD's in them
23:49<twb>There's a table of the 20 or so different models
23:49<gord>why on earth...
23:49<SledgY>the 901 linux version has a 20GB SSD
23:49<SledgY>with a debian install that's a ton of space
23:49<twb>gord: HDDs are cheaper and have faster I/O
23:50<gord>If I'm buying a portable I expect it to last more than 3 hours
23:50<SledgY>701 gets me around 4-5hours
23:50<twb>gord: get an atom board, then. Better would be an ARM, but then you lose x86 compatibility.

23:50<twb>SledgY: you upgraded the cell?
23:51<SledgY>twb: Nope
23:51<twb>My 701 4G struggles to do 4h, even when not running X and with the ondemand governor.
23:51<gord>chances are I wont get anything on the market currently. I have a 12" laptop that works fine. I'll wait for more competition in the ultraportables, cheaper and better ssd's...
23:51<craigevil>SledgY: what desktop?
23:51<SledgY>is yours the 4400mAh or 5200mAh?
23:51<twb>SledgY: the latter, I believe.
23:52<SledgY>Depends of course what I'm doing
23:52<SledgY>But I used mine in the airport and then on a 3.5 hour flight and still had about 30% battery left
23:52<twb>$ cat /sys/class/power_supply/BAT0/charge_full_design ==> 5200000
23:52<SledgY>was mainly doing dev in an xterm though
