02:12<YouBucky>Hi All, I'm after a website that has various linux tutorials or enterprise scenario projects.... I'd like something that illustrates various setups to learn more about what you'd expect to find when working in a linux environment
02:12<YouBucky>Anyone able to point me in the right direction? :)
02:15<enouf>could you be a bit more vague?
02:16-!-freealan [] has quit [Quit: leaving]
02:16-!-fenix [~fenix@] has joined #debian
02:16<strikr>from what I made out of it, hes looking for different setups where something goes wrong and how implementing debian solves it
02:17-!-fenix [~fenix@] has quit []
02:17<paistis>like ltsp?
02:17<YouBucky>Sorry, my question is vague I know
02:18<YouBucky>Let me try explain...
02:18-!-derfel [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
02:18<strikr>That would fit what I understood
02:19<YouBucky>There are so many Linux projects, numerous applications that achieve similar goals, I'm looking for example infactructure setups I can duplicate that will teach and illustrate what you would realistically setup in an enterprise.
02:20-!-madrescher [] has joined #debian
02:20<strikr>install it, turn it on. Theres your infrastructure setup.
02:20<YouBucky>For example you would expect a syslog server is common, apache as a web server, perhaps a zabbix box to monitor health etc, just some fun projects.....
02:21<YouBucky>My knowledge is limited and my exposure to linux is limited, Id like to see what others are doing in the enterprise arena
02:22<YouBucky>Does that clarify my question?

02:24<Aeron|mtf>what command do i need to run to play sgt-puzzles?
02:24-!-strikr [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
02:25-!-meandtheshell1 [] has joined #debian
02:26<YouBucky>One common thing I've found with linux is there are thousands of articles to fix a problem or install an app but I'm yet to find somthing that ties it all together, Debian is fantastic but theres very little that sells the big picture of the value it can add to an organisation
02:30-!-dgodfather [] has joined #debian
02:30<craigevil>hm that would be why thousands of schools and businesses use debian > just to name a few
02:30<Aeron|mtf>what command do i need to run to play sgt-puzzles?
02:31<craigevil>its a ton of diff games they should be in your games menu
02:31<dgodfather>i am running a debian etch with kernel 2.6.18-6-686 on a mobo gigabyte P35DS3L
02:31<Aeron|mtf>craigevil, they are not
02:31<dgodfather>i want to get sound to work, i can't install alsa and set it up
02:31<craigevil>they are on my kde dsktop under the debian menu games>Puzzles
02:32<Aeron|mtf>craigevil, i'm running Ubuntu, and i asked in the Ubuntu channel and no one answered. i figured that since Ubuntu is based off Debian that maybe someone here could help
02:32<dgodfather>and from past tries it seems alsa for this kernel doesn't support the on board sound card
02:32<craigevil>havent a clue where they would be on the ubuntu gnome menu
02:33<dgodfather>i think it should install the driver package of snd_hda_intel but i am quite sure it doesn't support my hardware in that kernel
02:33<dgodfather>how do i get it to work?
02:33<craigevil>have you tried running alsaconf as root
02:33<YouBucky>Dont get me wrong I think Debian is awesome but there are so many differant applications achieve the same results, what Id like to see is example setups in an enterprise. For example you can find articles to setup a Win 2K3 box with explaination of now we need AD to achive this which relies on DNS to achieve this.... its all clear and structured, where can I find the same thing for Debian?
02:34-!-creeed [] has joined #debian
02:34<YouBucky>Unless you specifically know what you want its difficult to know if you're making the "best" choice with X package

02:35<dgodfather>can anyone help me with that?
02:35-!-angasule__ [~angasule@] has joined #debian
02:36<YouBucky>dgodfather: do you know what hardware is installed and what you are missing?
02:37<craigevil>dgodfather: in a terminal as root run alsaconf
02:37<creeed>I'm a newboie and I just try now to install the proprietary nvidia-Drivers using its own installer, this one tell me to install the kernel-source, kernel headers and kernel-devel, can someone please tell me how to install those?
02:38<dgodfather>YouBucky: i tried that
02:38<craigevil>creeed: which release?
02:38<dgodfather>craigevil: it suggest ISA legacy
02:39<dgodfather>YouBucky: what do you mean by if in know what HW is installed?
02:39<craigevil>ISA is the only choice?
02:39<zepard>sgt-puzzles should be in /usr/games
02:40-!-angasule_ [~angasule@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
02:40<dgodfather>craigevil: yes, in also conf, also doing alsa reload it sais non loaded non to load
02:40<creeed>I use Debian Etch 4.0 for amd64 architekture
02:40<craigevil>!dpkg nvidia
02:40<dpkg>To use an NVIDIA graphics card with Debian, see If you've done it before, ask me about <nvidia one-liner> for a reminder. If using a later release than Etch, ask me about <nvidia_post_etch> or <nvidia_lenny>. drivers (ie. <nvidia-installer>) are _not_ supported in #debian, please go to #nvidia (
02:40<creeed>craigevil, I use the Kernel 2.6.18-6-amd64
02:41<dgodfather>creeed: when someone tells you something conclusive, please let me know i wan't them two
02:41<craigevil>creeed: follow the wiki

02:41<creeed>craigevil, dpkg wiki do you mean
02:41-!-cahoot [~radix@] has joined #debian
02:42<YouBucky>dodfather: Have you tried creating a custom kernel adding alsa as a module?
02:42<dgodfather>craigevil: well any idea?
02:42<gsimmons>dgodfather: You require a more recent ALSA version. Please provide the output of lspci at a paste site.
02:42<dpkg>Do not paste more than 3 lines to this channel. Instead, use: or or for pics. Use for large files (think tar.gz) up to 100MB. Remember to tell us the URL of your paste!
02:42<craigevil>nope for starters ive never ran stable
02:42<dgodfather>gsimmons: i will give me a few secs
02:42<craigevil>why did you go back to etch after having lenny installed?
02:43<dgodfather>it doesn't recognize my gforce card
02:44<gsimmons>dgodfather: Run "update-pciids", then provide an updated paste.
02:44<creeed>thank you
02:45<craigevil>creeed: if that gives you issues try

02:47<dgodfather>from repositories?
02:48<dgodfather>gsimmons: are you still with me?
02:48-!-YouBucky [] has quit []
02:50<gsimmons>dgodfather: The easiest method would be to install a later kernel package for use in your Etch system. You can either use the etchnhalf kernel (2.6.24, providing ALSA 1.0.15) or a kernel (2.6.26, provides ALSA 1.0.16). "/msg dpkg etchnhalf" and "/msg dpkg" respectively.
02:51<dgodfather>gsimmons: i don't want that solution cause then i don't have support for installing the nvidia driver for my system under those kernels
02:51<dgodfather>is there another way?

02:52<zepard>hey people, out do you think about putt in ~/.bash_profile in /etc/profile for GDM login
02:52-!-gord [] has joined #debian
02:52<zepard>what do you think about putt this ~/.bash_profile in /etc/profile for GDM login
02:52<gsimmons>dgodfather: Probably. I don't have any nVidia hardware so I can't assist you in this regard.
02:53<craigevil>dgodfather: both the 2.6.24 and 2.6.26 will work just fine with nvidia
02:53<zepard>sorry for repeating I have too much mistakes when typing (not yet awake)
02:53<gord>I upgraded from .24 to .26 without issue
02:54-!-zhua278 [~yzh424@] has joined #debian
02:54<dgodfather>craigevil: but the 2.6.26 is from backports and i didn't succeed installing the nvidia driver after installing the kernel
02:54<dgodfather>craigevil: how can i embed a new ALSA version in my current kernel?
02:54-!-kalpik [~kalpik@] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
02:55<gord>dgodfather, did you download your kernel source?
02:55<gord>dgodfather, embed? alsa is compiled as a module and runs seperately
02:55<dgodfather>gord: even better
02:55<dgodfather>gord: no i didn't
02:56-!-mauser1891 [] has joined #debian
02:56<gord>dgodfather, go to alsahq, download the libraries and drivers, uninstall your previous version with apt-get , extract the sources and run "./configure... make... make install" 'make install' will need root privileges
02:56<gord>dgodfather, you will need the kernel sources if you are using the nvidia installer (easiest way imo)
02:57<gord>installing with the nvidia installer will however require you to kill
02:57<gord>ps aux|grep X xdm gdm kdm
02:57<dgodfather>gord: but heard it's not a good way if you are ever to upgrade your system
02:57<gord>kill any *dm and /bin/x process ids
02:58-!-mauser1891 [] has quit []
02:58-!-mauser1891 [] has joined #debian
02:58<gord>dgodfather, there are no issues with it and upgrading. If you run into issues you can always default to nv or vesa using xorg.conf and then reinstall the nvidia drivers later
02:58-!-githogori [] has joined #debian
02:59<gord>but that could happen for any reason (even updates)
02:59<gord>it's unlikely but it can happen
02:59<gord>it is easy to fix
03:00<gord>if you prefer to use the repositories and build your nvidia kernel module you're welcome to do that as well
03:00<dgodfather>gord: how do i do that? yes i do prefer but doing this from the 2.6.26 kernel didn't work for me last time i tried.
03:01<gord>I didn't use the prescribed method. I used the nvidia installer and encountered no errors
03:01<dgodfather>gord: please let me boot of the new kernel and i will reconnect here and use your guidence if you may?
03:01<gord>sure, but I'm running low on time
03:01<dgodfather>in that case i am willing to try the installer

03:04<dpkg>i guess backport is a package from a newer Debian branch, compiled from source for an older branch to avoid dependency and ABI complications., Ask me about <simple sid backport> and <backport caveat>, <>
03:04<gord>dgodfather, download the appropriate nvidia installer from
03:05<dgodfather>gord: sec wanted to ask about the repository for backports i need to add
03:05<dgodfather>i don't have them
03:05<gord>I used no backports to install the drivers
03:05<gord>are you using the nvidia installer?
03:05-!-kalpik [~kalpik@] has joined #debian
03:06<dgodfather>i will, i only need a newer kernel for the sound
03:06-!-numayeah [] has quit [Quit: +q]
03:06<dgodfather>i have a to old alsa driver for my HW
03:06<dgodfather>i need the newer kernel unless you can help me set it up under 2.6.18
03:07<dgodfather>and i wan't my nvidia driver installed under the working kernel
03:07<gord>the newer kernel should be available... are you running etch or lenny?
03:07<gord>didn't know people still used etch
03:07<dgodfather>i do, trying to move to lenny killed me,
03:08<gord>you might as well upgrade now, if you have the time
03:08<craigevil>he had lenny installed earlier but couldnt get nvidia installed
03:08<gord>that is odd
03:08<dgodfather>but not with the official driver
03:08-!-AutoMatriX [] has joined #debian
03:08<gord>were you using this method?
03:09<dgodfather>gord: no, someone here simply guided me through and left in the middle :)
03:09<dgodfather>sure i am smiling now
03:09<dgodfather>i messed up my whole system
03:09<gord>did you reinstall?
03:09<dgodfather>also the upgrade to lenny wasn't smooth
03:10<gord>if you dont want the hassle of upgrading you can download lenny itself
03:10<dgodfather>i know know but it shouldn't have been such a hassle should it?
03:11<dgodfather>it was supposed to be a metter of simple apt-get dist-upgrade violla
03:12<gord>you changed the sources to testing?
03:12<dgodfather>changed to lenny
03:12<dgodfather>BTW can't find netinst for lenny
03:13<gord>what architecture?
03:13<dgodfather>32 bit
03:13<dgodfather>i386 i guess
03:13<dgodfather>it's an intel core 2 duo 8400

03:14<gord>why not amd64?
03:14<gord>or do you need 32 bit?
03:14<dgodfather>well first because it's not amd
03:15<gord>common misconception
03:15<EmleyMoor>amd64 is not purely for AMDs
03:15<dgodfather>second because i am not sure there is full support for 64b bit architecture
03:15<EmleyMoor>Intel's EM64T family is part of amd64
03:15-!-mauser1891 [] has quit [Quit: using sirc version 2.211+KSIRC/1.3.12]
03:15<gord>It really depends on what you're doing on the machine
03:15<EmleyMoor>dgodfather: What exactly are you not sure about?
03:15<dgodfather>gord: it's OK to install amd64 for intel core2duo?
03:16<gord>I'm running it :)
03:16<EmleyMoor>I'm going amd64 when I get my new machine in the next two weeks
03:16<gord>c2d e6300 @2.8
03:16<dgodfather>OH in that case i will use the amd 64, is there support for everything?
03:16<gord>what will you be doing on the machine?
03:17<dgodfather>well programming and day to day work especially
03:17<gord>if you do a lot of WINE then perhaps not, but for everyday computing you wont notice a difference
03:17<dgodfather>drivers .etc is there good support? say for nvidia ?
03:17<dgodfather>though you use it now...
03:18<gord>the only real hassle (which isn't really that much of a hassle now) is using pluginwrapper for flash
03:18<dgodfather>i don't do wine at all
03:18<gord>I do, running an 8800 GTS
03:18<dgodfather>like me :)
03:18<gord>nvidia drivers installed without a hitch
03:18<dgodfather>without the s
03:18<EmleyMoor>There are ways to use wine on amd64 - but it being a thing I very rarely do, that wouldn't bother me
03:18<EmleyMoor>Flash might be a minor pain but I will burn that bridge when I come to it
03:18<gord>EmleyMoor, some 32-bit libraries or something?
03:18<dgodfather>gord: so you recommad i install the amd64 version
03:18<dgodfather>of lenny?
03:19<gord>EmleyMoor, it's incredibly easy
03:19<gord>dgodfather, I don't see why not.
03:19<EmleyMoor>gord: I'm sure it is. If it's difficult with Debian, it's usually because it needs to be :-)
03:19<dgodfather>well, how can i get a netinst cd for lenny, it takes for ever to download those 5 DVD images
03:20<gord>EmleyMoor, cp <filename? ~/.mozilla/plugins && nspluginwrapper -i ~/.mozilla/plugins/
03:20<gord>restart iceweasel. done
03:21-!-quitte [] has joined #debian
03:21<EmleyMoor>Not having amd64 yet, I can hardly do it yet - but it sounds easy enough
03:21<gord>it's literally just those 2 commands, plus maybe an extraction from the tar file off the adobe site
03:21<blarson>dgodfather: install can be done from the first cd or dvd. The others just add extra packages that you can install over the internet.
03:22*EmleyMoor tries to resist referring to it as Mrs. Bristow
03:22<quitte>hi. I'm looking for away to enable the teacher at my school to connect to the pupils desktop with vnc. any idea how i would do that?
03:22<gord>dgodfather, use the netinst option if you want to download from a close mirror (i have a university within 3 km of my house)
03:22<gord>thanks craigevil
03:23<dgodfather>thanks craigevil
03:23<gord>dgodfather, there is also a torrent file, but I'm not sure it's worth it for the... ~100mb file?
03:23<EmleyMoor>Is there a good way I can tinker with a RAID and LVM setup before I have the hardware? (I have qemu - that may help)
03:23<dgodfather>gord: no it's fine i am downloadig craigevil link with wget
03:24<dgodfather>after install i will return here for installing the nvidia hopefully you will still be here
03:24<gord>EmleyMoor, Just familiarize yourself with how raid and lvm work first. learning beforehand would have helped a lot when I set up my fileserver
03:24<EmleyMoor>I've had plenty of time to do that, thanks to the money coming much later than expected
03:24<gord>dgodfather, I will not, unfortunately, but I'm sure some one here can help you. simply install your kernel .26 and it's source then run the nvidia installer
03:25<gord>you will have to kill X and your display manager too, some one here should be able to help with that
03:25<EmleyMoor>I intend to place my order on Thursday
03:25<gord>EmleyMoor, how much space you getting?
03:25<EmleyMoor>(then it's all a matter of a bit of paperwork and getting the parts sent from Lancashire)
03:25<gord>500 raid or total?
03:26<EmleyMoor>That's what the RAID will come to. 1TB total
03:26<gord>4x500 drives?
03:26<dgodfather>gord: well the kernel with lenny is easier :)
03:26<dgodfather>it has 26 in the official repos
03:26<matth_>anybody ever played with NAS4220 from Icy Box ?
03:27<gord>dgodfather, very much so. I couldn't stand etch when I installed it. for a server, sure, I run my file server with etch, but it's too far behind for desktop use
03:27<dgodfather>do you say i should install like the wiki suggests or the official driver?
03:27<matth_>read it's a fully linux hackable NAS device
03:27<gord>4x250... no redundant space?
03:28<EmleyMoor>Um... I think I have misunderstood some of the terms you were asking in
03:28<EmleyMoor>500 usable space, 2 failure resilient
03:28-!-info [] has joined #debian
03:28<info>how i can install ubuntu from usb stick?????
03:28<gord>EmleyMoor, ah, that makes sense
03:29<craigevil>try asking in @ubuntu on freenode
03:29<matth_>info: try #ubuntu maybe
03:29<gord>I thought you were using 1TB usable space
03:29<gord>in which case using raid would be pointless
03:29<matth_>that being said it is quite easy to test and install debian with debian-live :)
03:29<info>can you send me a link please
03:29<matth_>from a usb stick of course and a MoBo that support booting off that devices
03:29<EmleyMoor>I wouldn't bother with simple striping etc...
03:30<gord>I wouldn't mind grabbing a couple more 500 drives to make a raid on my server (I'm running 2x500 without any backups) 1 drive fails the volume fails.. but I live life on the edge
03:31<gord>Running the actual OS off a usb stick is nice on lowering hdd wear
03:31<EmleyMoor>I've been running without redundancy for years - and luckily had no serious failures

03:32<gord>I've only had 1 hard drive ever crap out, and it was about 7 years old
03:33<EmleyMoor>I've had a few crap out but never on a Debian box (unless you count the one that had Windows on it originally)
03:33<gord>Windows is notorious for it's excessive use of hardware.
03:34<EmleyMoor>Crapouts since have been supplementary drives with nothing of any consequence on
03:34<matth_>for debian, official images are here :
03:35<gord>yea, unfortunately if I lose my LVM volume all my data is gone... perhaps I should invest in some backup space
03:35<matth_>chosse architecture and media type (e.g usb-hdd) dd the image into the stick, reboot
03:35<gord>02:31:54 up 105 days, 3:45, 1 user, load average: 0.01, 0.01, 0.00
03:35<matth_>booting syslinux with "installgui" does the deed
03:35<gord>it doesn't do all that much
03:37<matth_>info: was for you, if you are still interested in testing/installing debian off an usb stick
03:38<dgodfather>gord, the wiki said it's meant for serge or etch not lenny
03:39<gord>that method?
03:39<gord>or the nvidia installer
03:39<EmleyMoor>I had one "friend" at work who liked decent operating systems but insisted Windows was the best for desktop
03:39<gord>the nvidia installer should work on pretty much anything. Linux is Linux.
03:39<EmleyMoor>dgodfather: I backported nvidia drivers from sid to lenny
03:39<EmleyMoor>(not sure if that would work for you)
03:40<dgodfather>EmleyMoor: well i want to try install the official driver from nvidia but they say it is problematic if you install a new kernel
03:40<dgodfather>or compile the current one
03:40<gord>EmleyMoor, if you're willing to lead him through that it would probably be less hassle than killing x and his display manager, leaving him wading around in console.
03:40<gord>trying to install with the nvidia installer can be tricky if you're not familiar with the terminal
03:41<dgodfather>i don't care being in a console for restarting x
03:41<gord>in that case, either way would work
03:41<dgodfather>gord: i am fine with terminal as long as i am guided through
03:41<gord>dgodfather, the problem is your irc will go down with x
03:42<EmleyMoor>!tell dgodfather about nvidia_post_etch
03:42<dgodfather>but x isn't needed for irc connection if i use irssi
03:42<dgodfather>for example
03:43<EmleyMoor>That's havng added a source line for sid
03:43<EmleyMoor>!tell dgodfather about ssb
03:44<dgodfather>EmleyMoor: i tried that before and it didn't work, but then again it was after my machine was already a mess
03:44<dgodfather>well i will begin by installing the lenny for now
03:45<dgodfather>and then come back for the second round :)
03:47<gord>I know for sure the nvidia installer works
03:47<gord>but I'm sure EmleyMoor can help with the backports install, which could be easier
03:48<dgodfather>gord: well then after the install of lenny i shell return and consult you guys.
03:48<gord>I'm rather pleased with fluxbox. I was unsure of it...
03:48<gord>ok, good luck
03:48<dgodfather>i want to start doing things carefully since debian is sensitive for users

05:39<EmleyMoor>A router typically acts as a proxy for DNS, if at all...
05:39<zebralinux>the router should have same nameservers as your computer does
05:39<EmleyMoor>The router itself would need to know where to send requests on to
05:40<rajeshsr>EmleyMoor, so what is happening with the present nameserver entry at resolv.conf..
05:40<EmleyMoor>Your computer asks the router.
05:40<stevecotton>The routers that do NAT and DHCP (I'm assuming a typical home ADSL / cable setup) tend to have a forwarding nameserver in them too.
05:40-!-cq_ [] has joined #debian
05:41<rajeshsr>stevecotton, so router send the request to some nameserver, it knows?
05:41<quitte>rajeshsr: your isp is BSNL?
05:41<rajeshsr>quitte, yep!
05:42<cq_>hello, question: Ijust installed inspircd, and I can access it from the same machine with LOCALHOST, but not from another machine on teh network... I set the IPtables to allow connections to the port, but it's still refusing connections
05:42<quitte>rajeshsr: ok. then thispage should help:
05:42<quitte>rajeshsr: read it all before doing anything
05:44<stevecotton>rajeshsr: (assuming typical ADSL / cable again) - when the router is connected to the internet it does DHCP and finds out the ISP's nameservers; when your computer is connected to the router it (the computer) does DHCP and finds the router is its nameserver.
05:45<rajeshsr>stevecotton, so ultimately in order to resolve hostname the request goes to ISP nameserver.
05:46<rajeshsr>so present entry in resolv.conf is also no problem?

06:09<parecen>rajeshsr: if you specify a local nameserver it has to cache or forward DNS requests to the nameserver of your ISP
06:09-!-mezod [] has joined #debian
06:10<rajeshsr>parecen, thats what. If it is going to finally give the request to ISP namserver and get it resolved, what is the need to explicitly do it by adding an entry to resolv.conf
06:11<rajeshsr>the important thing to note is iceweasel works with the past nameserver entry itself
06:11<rajeshsr>nslookup too
06:11<EmleyMoor>rajeshsr: Because it's obviously not doing it right
06:11<rajeshsr>only synaptic and xchat like application fails..
06:11<rajeshsr>so they seem to use some weird methods in order to resolve ip?
06:12<EmleyMoor>More likely iceweasel doew
06:12<EmleyMoor>The others certainly use conventional methods

06:25<stevecotton><rajeshsr> I read in some blog that IPv6 needs to be disabled. So i did it. after that Iceweasel began to load based on hostnames as well.
06:25<stevecotton>That's how I recognised the router bug. That option in Iceweasel makes it only ask for IPv4 addresses, not IPv6 ones.
06:26<rajeshsr>stevecotton, so what do u inferr?
06:26-!-chattr [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
06:27<rajeshsr>U mean that router is flawn, with dns lookups?
06:27-!-chattr [] has joined #debian
06:27<stevecotton>Yes - it seems your router misbehaves if asked to look up an IPv6 address.
06:28<rajeshsr>stevecotton, does that mean xchat looks up an IPv6 by default?
06:28-!-linac [~lin@] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
06:31<stevecotton>Most applications will use a shared tool to look up IP addresses, and it tries IPv6 before IPv4. Note that the request to look up an IPv6 address can be sent over normal IPv4.
06:34<stevecotton>But an application that uses the common tool has to wait for the look-up to finish before doing anything else. So some applications like Iceweasel include their own. [this is inaccurate but generally true]

08:23<info>its nothing written in fstab
08:24<weasel>info: that probably depends on what "detect my hda" means
08:24<info>This was a bit tricky until I got the hang of it. You need to have the hardware detection detect your hda before you can mount it! But just wait until it complains about a missing CD-ROM, then don't try to helpfully tell it where to look. Just accept the dialog where it says that this stage failed, then switch over to the virtual console and mount -t vfat /dev/hda3 /cdrom. (I skipped the gyrations with /dev/cdroms, they don't seem to be necessary.)

08:53<Tamas>Hi! I downloaded debian-test dvd iso #1; md5 sum is ok; I burned the dvd and tried to install; The base system could not be installed, I got the message "no installable cd-rom"; I check the dvd: The "integrity test was successful. The CD-ROM is valid."; after that the dvd can not be mounted again, I can not get back to the installation menu. Any suggestion? Thanks in advance!

11:14<Teal>Hi, is there anywhere on the Debian website that describes which packages are contained in the predefined 'collections' in the Debian installation?

11:15<abrotman>Delko: what's your video card?
11:15<Delko>During the install process Xorg is not supposed to be installed???
11:15<EmleyMoor>I think Teal means such things as "Desktop environment" and "SQL Server"
11:15<kakatree>startx ?

11:16<ansgar>eddieB_:, if you call it `./script a b' it should give `FOLDER is a, NAME is b'

12:32<dpkg>from memory, netinst is a small CD or set of floppy images which installs Debian using an Internet connection, but is not required for a base install to complete, see If you use a dialup connection, ask me about <dialup install>. <netboot miniiso>, or ask me about <check iso image>

12:56<cahoot>diggyz: fail2ban?
12:56<diggyz>yeah i think i tried that before, it scans the logs right?
12:56<diggyz>wouldnt it be better to just block them with iptables? netfilter way
12:56<dondelelcaro>diggyz: uh... that's how it blocks them
12:57-!-pumpkin0 [] has joined #debian
12:57<dondelelcaro>diggyz: but it has to look at the logs to know when someone is brute forcing ssh

13:03<dondelelcaro>could be; I doubt it's as flexible as fail2ban, but it probably works on the same principle
13:03<enouf>it's python related .. |-python,3356 /usr/sbin/denyhosts --daemon --config=/etc/denyhosts.conf --config=/etc/denyhosts.conf
13:04<dondelelcaro>(fail2ban you can configure to ban anything; I've got mine blocking bruteforce attacks on dovecot, for example)
13:04<fxiny>time i check fail2ban then

13:38<sh4d3sl4y3r_><< a debian noob with problems
13:38<dondelelcaro>norbert_: sensible-editor should be using nano, which is pretty trivial
13:38<norbert_>for example, when I edit a file in /etc, the editor should say "to access this file, you need to enter the root password"
13:38-!-nosbig [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
13:38<norbert_>dondelelcaro: that editor doesn't have a GUI as far as I know

13:39-!-si0ux [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
13:39<dondelelcaro>norbert_: uh... it's CLI based; you shouldn't be running a GUI as root, ever.
13:39<norbert_>this is a real problem, noobs need a simple editor like gedit that will allow them to edit files with root permissions
13:39<norbert_>and gedit just gives an error message
13:39<dondelelcaro>norbert_: if whoever this is is incapable of handling a simmple text editor in a CLI, then they shouldn't be editing them as root
13:40<umt>just start gedit from a root shell
13:40<diggyz>fxiny: didnt work on 22 default either
13:40<diggyz>iptables finds the abuser and bans it, but still can connect
13:40<fxiny>noob should accept this world logic

13:43<strikr>How am I supposed to install glib without having to download the source and ./configure it?
13:43<dondelelcaro>norbert_: sure it is; gtksu is the thing that asks, and there's even a menu option for a root shell or a root editor.
13:43<norbert_>gedit is an editor and a user trying to edit a file with root permissions is a concrete action, not a random oe
13:43<strikr>apttitude does not have it nor is it in the package maniger?
13:43<norbert_>root shells and root editors are for geeks and nerds, not for regular users

13:46<chealer>dondelelcaro: glib, not glibc
13:46<norbert_>and I shouldn't need to set up a gedit to run inside of gtksu, the system should come with that stuff installed /or/ should have a proper editor that can open files with root permissions
13:46<dondelelcaro>strikr: don't have what file? pidgin is already packaged; you don't need to do it.
13:46<dondelelcaro>norbert_: any editor running as root can edit those files
13:46<chealer>strikr: glib is available via APT, yes

13:46<abrotman>strikr: aptitude install gaim .. in etch .. which is like pidgin2.0beta4
13:46<strikr>Its not packaged on mine
13:47<dondelelcaro>strikr: if you're running etch, then use gaim, or a backport of pidgin if it exists

13:48<abrotman>strikr: just install gaim already

13:49<dondelelcaro>norbert_: uh... you don't need to edit /etc/Muttrc
13:49<craigevil>strikr: your not listening either do aptitude install gaim or use backports to install pidgin, you do not need to install from source
13:49<norbert_>dondelelcaro: what if I do?
13:49<dondelelcaro>strikr: use gaim, or install a backport of pidgin using
13:49<dondelelcaro>norbert_: you don't ever need to; you edit your ~/.muttrc
13:50<norbert_>you really want me to look for an example of a file with root permissions that I /would/ like to edit?
13:50<strikr>ok so I will install gaim to shut you up but how to I fix my glib problem?
13:50-!-path [] has joined #debian
13:50<dierot>? = "netstat gui"
13:51<dondelelcaro>strikr: it's not a problem; if you actually have to build something that isn't packaged (you almost never do, but whatever) install the development headers for the libraries that you need.
13:51<paul__>is there any faq for accessing wifi (ap use WPA-PSK)?
13:51<fxiny>norbert_: play with /etc/hosts
13:51<dondelelcaro>strikr: you'll find them using apt-cache search library -dev; or similar.
13:51<abrotman>dierot: apt-cache search netstat .. i see some gnome-ish things
13:52<strikr>So just dev the headers. Wasn't that simple enough?

14:01<enouf>you probably want to double that dgodfather if you had to "free it up" to begin with
14:01<enouf>dgodfather: it isn't when using msdos partition sytle tables
14:01<dgodfather>no i meant i resized the partition

14:03<dgodfather>enouf: i only have problem that i can't create another partition from the unallocated disk part with this error
14:03<dgodfather>not error much as saying i can't have more then 4 primary
14:04<dgodfather>but i don't wont a primary partition now, only a partition to store the image on
14:04<fxiny>dgodfather: you want 3 primary and one extended : this way you can make logicals up to 32 partitions iirc . you want more ? yes is possible even more , need some workk
14:05<dgodfather>fxiny: but how can i create an extended now that i have already reached the limit of primary partitions?
14:06<dgodfather>on the same disk i have my windows partition for games and stuff and it sees that as primary as well i guess
14:06<fxiny>dgodfather: easy : format last primary as extended
14:06<chealer>dondelelcaro: OK, but X as root is quite different. and at least desktop users should feel free to run some GUIs as root.
14:06<fxiny>you will loose your data
14:06<dgodfather>fxiny: won't that delete the content on the disk?
14:07<fxiny>just the partition you delete
14:07<fxiny>usuallly last one
14:07<dgodfather>fxiny: i can't loose my data you know i worked hard setting it all up
14:07<dgodfather>well it's the / partition on the disk

14:08<fxiny>enouf: bloody typos :)
14:08<dgodfather>fxiny: yep i shrinked the root partition in 5 giga

14:10<enouf>it's amazing how fast these newcomers can read ...
14:10<dgodfather>and since extended is also primary i must delete one primary to create extended

14:12<fxiny>davi: why ? xmms2 is so great

14:13<fxiny>amarok is very good
14:13<dgodfather>fxiny: if i partition it from outside debian, from gparted live, will everything be ok after?
14:14<davi>fxiny, abrotman, I need xmms due to it came with some visual effects which my son love! I will have to go back to etch.
14:14<davi>some OpenGL 3D effects
14:14<enouf>dgodfather: you'll need to backup the data elsewhere (the data from the partition you are to delete and convert to Ext'd and create logicals within)
14:14<fxiny>dgodfather: yes , you must do it "outside" , btw : checkout partimage on that live cd

14:23<sandrine>I'm using KDE4.1
14:23<dgodfather>but how do i put root in a logical into the extended?
14:23<fxiny>dgodfather: if you move swap dont' forget to edit fstab
14:24<sandrine>but with Intel graphics
14:24<sandrine>cause fglrx is broken on my W500.
14:24<dgodfather>enouf: no prob sorry
14:24<kd>sandrine: Intel has the best open source video driver, however I have nvidia
14:24<dgodfather>fxiny: enouf: i am sending the disk layout
14:24<fxiny>dgodfather: do you have 4 primary , right ? one is swap ? delete swap

14:26<davi>abrotman, I have not found in audacious the plugin which was in xmms. Maybe I need install some extra package as is was with xmms. Well, audacious GUI seem similar to the xmms. I like it.

14:26<fxiny>dgodfather: wait : i see an extenbded
14:26<enouf>those are the blocks you can play with
14:26<sandrine>But I cannot get dual-screen, there is a limit on 1920x1200 resolution with xrandr.
14:27<dgodfather>fxiny: but it's the windows partition on the disk
14:27<sandrine>And the old driver that support dual-screen (i80.. something) does not seem to work.
14:27<dgodfather>fxiny: enouf: wait please, can we explain to me one step at a time so i understand what i am about to do?
14:27<abrotman>davi: which visualization are you looking for?
14:28<dgodfather>i am about to die if i need to reinstall again, that is what the image is for :)
14:28<dgodfather>a. i delete the swap partition
14:28<dgodfather>that i get
14:28<chealer>kd: hey, if you got 8600M GT, could you try reproducing ?

14:47<kdas>sandrine, did it work ?
14:47<enouf>dgodfather: so, in short, you can leave all partition sizes as they are, you will use the sda6 7.5GB area for your backup, and you will have a swapfile on sda3 you use for swap
14:47<dgodfather>enouf: so i don't really know how to do what you suggested about changing the partitionId
14:48<sandrine>kdas, I try to disable that konsole shortcut ...
14:48<enouf>dgodfather: that you can do with fdisk advanced and fxiny mentioned -- or easier is cfdisk .. or maybe gparted LiveCD can do it

14:49<dgodfather>yep partition id
14:49<kdas>kd, i am running both those whats the bug ?
14:49<enouf>dgodfather: you 1st just mkfs on it - which FS do you want to use? ext3 ok?

14:50<dgodfather>yep ext3
14:50<sandrine>Ctrl pg UP print a nice control char ... like 5~
14:50<enouf>dgodfather: you 1st want to swapoff -a
14:50<kd>kdas: after trying to logout from KDE4.1 the system crashes. Twice black screen, once artefacts.
14:50<enouf>dgodfather: basically turn off swap
14:51<fxiny>enouf: i think he can leave things like they are : imo the extended should always be the last one , holding anything but root , this way deleting partitions is a breze , your swap file suggestion is the easy thing he can do

15:23<corin>so, I'm also a bit stuck with that!
15:23<corin>hence i've formatted it and have a clean slate. Got a stack of blank CDs and a fast net connection, so... any suggestions? :D

15:43<dgodfather>and i already mkdir'd /mnt/lennyImage
15:43<dgodfather>enouf: my swap partition was none
15:43<enouf>dgodfather: c) i chnaged your mount options area for /dev/sda6 ext3 from 'sw' to 'defaults,noauto'
15:44<enouf>dgodfather: now, let's see what free -m | grep Swap says now (all 0 0 0 ??)
15:44<dgodfather>enouf: OK changed all that

15:47<enouf>dgodfather: remember the cfdisk warning?
15:47<dgodfather>OK but only after i understood what we did :)

16:24<patrick>I've installed debian but I think I've typed the pass for root wrong.
16:24<dpkg>BitchX is an old and unmaintained IRC client built on epic and ircII. As a Debian package, screwed up and not falling back to IPv4 when IPv6 ain't possible. It's not as good as <irssi> and needs less moronic /quit messages. If you are an irssi user who is annoyed by said /quit messages, see <bitchxignore>. Abandoned by its upstream authors, removed from Debian to resolve bug #451373.

16:25<dpkg>it has been said that iceweasel is the name of a DFSG-free fork of Firefox, which replaces Firefox in Debian starting from Etch. It is different from GNU's version of Firefox, which formerly had the same name but is now known as IceCat ( To learn about the reasons for the fork, ask me about <why iceweasel>.
16:25<enouf>kdas: is the binary named iceweasel?

17:04<kdas>!tell pinnacle about pastebin
17:05<kdas>Flix, you can't or don't know ?
17:05<abrotman>!nvidia lenny
17:05<dpkg>The nvidia drivers aren't in lenny. You can install them by getting them from unstable. To install them anyway, try following and don't miss the Current issues section. You may setup a quick testing/unstable mix.
17:05<Flix>kdas: Ive followed a couple of guides, but it just dosent work as well as the guide tells me it should...
17:06<pinnacle>I made a clean install as well, so can there be anything wrong with the repos?
17:06<Flix>I know, first, I download drivers from official then I turn off xserver and such, but I get a error in the installation...
17:06<kdas>Flix, you need to provide more detail then "i tryed but its broken now"

17:25<kop>pinnacle : Not really. The installer has a newer kernel, I think. There's a newer one in etch these days for newer hardware, but you have to tell the installer to install the etchnhalf kernel.
17:25<pinnacle>there's two of them: linux-image-2.6-amd64 and linux-image.2.6.18-6-amd64

17:26-!-Flix [] has joined #debian
17:27<pinnacle>how do I do that?

18:01<kop>pinnacle : The z25 file keeps track of the mac address of the nic and makes sure that the same mac always goes with the same ethN device name. So, not applicable.
18:01<pinnacle>ok :(

18:07<kop>pinnacle : There's 3 debian versions. The default is "stable", which I like because it just works.
18:07<dpkg>testing is probably a release/suite between <stable> and <unstable>. Testing currently points to <lenny>. See for frequently asked questions about testing. Also check out for the initial release. Ask me about <etch->lenny>, or a few days old glorified unstable with missing packages, or ask me about <moving target>.

18:08<pinnacle>what's the difference between the kernel I had and etchnhalf then?
18:08<kop>pinnacle : Lots of people run lenny, but sometimes it will break. And the security support is not _guarenteed_.
18:08-!-goshawk [~goshawk@] has joined #debian
18:09<kop>pinnacle : etchnhalf is newer. Now you need what has. That's bound to work. (We could see what the installer's using and use that, but why not use something supported?)
18:09<pinnacle>kop: I see. Well, what should I do? chroot again?
18:10<kop>Yes, but first we need to read the instructions at At minimum another line in sources.list is required.

18:12<kop>pinnacle : Right. Step 1 is all that's required.
18:14<kop>pinnacle : (While your at it, when booted in rescue mode type "uname -a". I'm curious what the installer's running.)
18:14<pinnacle>it says: Linux debian 2.6.18-6-amd64

21:43<dmoerner>that is an oxymoron
21:43-!-mentor is now known as Guest780
21:44<kdas>dmoerner, so then the open NV drivers are better then the non free
21:44<dmoerner>no 3d acceleration

21:55<dmoerner>kdas: set the font in ~/.Xdefaults
21:55<dmoerner>man xterm to find the name of the resource
21:55<dpkg>from memory, xdefaults is xrdb -merge ~/.Xdefaults, or call it ~/.Xresources to have gdm merge it automatically
