00:00<kop>racecar56 : You're best off sticking with the stock debian packages. If you need to go past that use Or you can use dpkg-buildpackage to backport stuff yourself.
00:01<kop>racecar56 : Check for a newer iceweasel/firefox.
00:01<racecar56>ok im doing that
00:02<racecar56>o_o i was looking on there and it gives me a firefox package
00:03-!-Valtiel-ASD [~Valtiel-A@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:03<kop>racecar56 : That's the iceweasel that's in etch.
00:04<racecar56>i heard firefox 2 support was dead, does that mean that iceweasel 2 is also, or its the most up to date
00:04-!-Holborn [] has quit [Quit: Lost terminal]
00:04<kop>racecar56 : Etch is old, but sure to work and supported by the debian security team.
00:05-!-marco__ [] has joined #debian
00:05<kop>racecar56 : Lenny is newer, but does not have the security support so I stick with etch. And, I want things to just plain work without fussing.
00:05<stew>racecar56: firefox support is dead upstream. but iceweasel 2 is suported fully by the debian security team
00:05<stew>racecar56: in fact, part of the reason for the renaming to iceweasel is that mozcorp did not want debian to be doing this type of security support
00:06<kop>racecar56 : (And still use the firefox name.)
00:06<racecar56>thanks for your help
00:07<kop>racecar56 : Mozilla might have a binary for etch, but then you're on your own when it comes to security updates and making sure things stay working.
00:07<kop>The great thing about linux is that when you stick with your distro for all your software, then things are sure to work. (For some value of "sure".)
00:07<stew>firefox 3 on etch is problematic becuase it means getting gtk from a non-debian source
00:08<stew>(which is why its not on
00:08<racecar56>my first distro ive ever used was xandros 3.0, that was back in 2006 i think

00:09<kop>racecar56 : Some distros are better known for their upgradeability and future-proof-ness. Deiban is one of them.
00:10<racecar56>then much later (ubuntu 8.04 was new at that time) i used ubuntu and a little after i got debian cause i was curious
00:12<racecar56>but i knew about debian scince i used xandros because for some reason it mentioned it
00:13<racecar56>thanks alot for your help

00:22<Naicamine>i just did a reinstall on my debian server and i cant ping it by hostname from a ubuntu machine. by ip, it pings fine tho
00:23-!-libereco [~libereco@] has joined #debian
00:24<Naicamine>its messing with samba. sometimes my server shows up and sometimes not
00:28<kop>Naicamine : Regards ping, it seems you've dns problems.
00:28<Naicamine>hmmm we have a 2wire modem that does all the DNS
00:29<Naicamine>so the problem should be local to the server
00:29<Naicamine>but other than that idk
00:30<kop>Naicamine : Or to the 2wire. Have you checked that the name resolves to the IP you're expecting?
00:30<Naicamine>how do you mean?
00:31<kop>You ask the dns server to tell you the IP number belonging to the name.
00:31-!-foka [~foka@] has joined #debian
00:31<Naicamine>oic, no i havent
00:31-!-kibo [] has joined #debian

00:31<kop>Naicamine : You also ask whatever computer's doing the asking what dns server it's asking for answers.
00:32<kop>Naicamine : Try using dig.

00:32-!-Ninja [] has joined #debian
00:34<Naicamine>kop: dig -b returns: dig: isc_socket_bind: address not available

00:35<Naicamine>is that how i do it?
00:36-!-mentor [~matthew@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:36<kop>Naicamine : you do : dig
00:37-!-macman [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:37<kop>Naicamine : Or: dig -x to do the reverse lookup (which you're not interested in at the moment.)
00:37<Naicamine>what do you need to know from the output then?
00:38<kop>Naicamine : It says that the IP is what you expect, and that it's looking at the nameserver you expect?
00:38-!-shashi [~shashi@] has joined #debian
00:38<Naicamine>it prints the ip of the 2wire, not the server
00:39-!-Chaos`Eternal [~chaos@] has joined #debian
00:39<kop>Naicamine : You said the 2wire is the nameserver, so it should print that as the nameserver. But if it's printing the 2wire's address as that belonging to the name, then your dns is borked. (2wire's are totally lame IMO.)
00:40<kop>Naicamine : There's the "answer section" where you get your answer, and the stuff at the bottom where it gives dns server info.
00:42<Naicamine>it gives a question section and an authority section
00:43<kop>Naicamine : Then the name is not in your dns server. So there's no wonder you can't ping the name.
00:43<kop>Naicamine : (Unless your asking the wrong server. It says what server your asking at the bottom.)
00:44-!-linux_stu [] has joined #debian
00:45<Naicamine>so i need to update the 2wire dns then
00:45<kop>Naicamine : MS Windows/samba on the other hand can use voodoo other than dns to change names into numbers. I don't know what's what with that. You could try asking on #samba.)
00:45<linux_stu>how can i make gnome-power-manager start at boot?
00:45<kop>Naicamine : Yes. Or you could use your server as a dns server.
00:46<kop>Naicamine : But then you'd probably need to know more about networking. You might check the reference manual at
00:47<Naicamine>well can i use it for dns if it only has 256mb of ram? cause right now its just a fille server
00:47-!-reneger [] has joined #debian
00:47<kop>Naicamine : This is assuming you asked the 2wire to resolve the dns.
00:47<kop>Naicamine : I'm running dns on a box with 64M of ram. (Having just upgraded from 48M.)
00:48<Naicamine>ok well then ill look into that cause i wanna rely as little as i can on that junk 2wire
00:48<kop>Naicamine : But you'd need to tell your dhcp server to tell the rest of your network to use the proper dns server.
00:49<kop>Naicamine : Of course you could have your server be the dhcp server too, and disable that on the 2wire.
00:49-!-BlueJ [~woody@] has joined #debian
00:50<Naicamine>that sounds pretty good to me, i think i will do that but im gonna read into it a little before i do it
00:51<kop>Naicamine : Use bind9 and dhcpd to go with the pros. Or dnsmasq if you need a tiny footprint. (It's used by the embedded device folks.)
00:51-!-dani [] has joined #debian
00:52<kop>Naicamine : The bind9 max-cache-size option can be used to limit ram utilization to just a few MB if necessary.
00:52-!-reneger [] has quit [Quit: reneger]
00:52<Naicamine>that sounds pretty good to me
00:53<dani>howdy fellas! i got a Q and i need an A. clock panel font.. how do i change it?
00:53-!-pkh [~pkh@] has joined #debian
00:53<kop>Naicamine : tail -f /var/log/daemon is your friend.
00:54<Naicamine>good thought thnx
00:54<kop>dani : Depends on the program that's displaying the clock.
00:55-!-kooola [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:55<dani>umm well it doesn't gimme that option to change the color.
00:57-!-hazard2 [] has quit [Quit: Quitting.]
00:57<dani>hey hey. ya know that beep sound it makes when you backspace into nothingness... how do i disable it? my parents are sleeping next room
00:58-!-evandar [~evandar@] has joined #debian
00:58<goodger>dani: I ended up unplugging the speaker in question
00:59<BlueJ>just disable system sounds
00:59<BlueJ>alert sounds*
00:59-!-hanthana [~hanthana@] has joined #debian
00:59<kop>There's a way to change the bell to a screen flash, but I forget... It's somewhere in X, I think.
00:59<kop>Or maybe curses?
01:01<dani>how do you disable system sounds?
01:01-!-omer [] has joined #debian
01:01<marco__>I think that the bleep can be disabled with rmmod pcspkr, but don't trust me much on this
01:01<dani>even when sounds is muted i hear that beep
01:02<phorce1>dani: Gnome?
01:03<BlueJ>dani its in the sound management
01:03<phorce1>Menubar ---- system --- preferences --- sound ---- system beep tab --- enable system beep unchecked --- visual system beep checked
01:04<marco__>if that doesn't work, "xset b off" could do
01:04<kop>dani: You might try:
01:04<phorce1>dani -- and possibly Volume control (Alsa Mixer) ---- pc speaker --- mute it
01:05<marco__>linux: so many ways to disable a beep
01:06<kop>It says: "xset -b" disables the bell altogether.
01:06<phorce1>dani: The first one (system preferences sound) turned it off for me
01:06-!-hw [] has quit [Quit: Quitte]
01:06-!-cahoot [~radix@] has joined #debian
01:07<dani>xset b off... how do i do this? cuz i dont see the system beep tab in sound preferences
01:07<dondelelcaro>from your .xsession or similar
01:07<dondelelcaro>I don't know how you do it in gnome, though
01:07<kop>dani : You open a terminal window and type it: Try : xset b off
01:07-!-adrian [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
01:08<kop>dani : Works for me.
01:08<dani>does nothing, just skips to the other line
01:08<marco__>if you press the key combination "alt+f2",then type "xset b off", then press enter it could work
01:08-!-evandar [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
01:08<dani>oh yeah it worked
01:09<kop>marco__ Better tell him to press alt+f7 to get back to X.
01:09<dani>do i have to do this everytime i loggin?
01:09<marco__>and there you go! this is linux for you ;-)
01:09<goodger>kop: you're thinking of ctrl-alt-f2. alt-f2 opens a "run" box in gnome
01:09<dani>gosh i love linux. windows is hippitty gaga boubou
01:09<phorce1>kop: ALT+F2 just opens a "run-in-terminal" popup
01:09<kop>dani : the .xsession dondelelcaro mentioned is (I think) the way to set it permanently.
01:10<dondelelcaro>it is if you're using a Debian session; I just have no clue if it's actually executed in the gnome session
01:10<dani>allrightyO! many thanks guys
01:10*kop has been working without X a lot lately so just use the plain alt codes to switch consoles.
01:12<dani>is it true that Mac stole some codes from Linux and then windows stole from Mac?
01:12-!-Dracie [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
01:12<marco__>dani: totally dude
01:12<kop>dani : Nope. Apple used netbsd code, which is allowed.
01:13<goodger>dani: no actual code, just ideas
01:13<Ananth123>but they also released their core kernel code
01:13-!-jm_ [] has joined #debian

01:14<dani>talk about originality huh
01:15<dani>did any of you guys tried running GTA 4 on linux?

01:19<goodger>damn it, -4 is too cold...
01:20<dani>it's -7 here. expecting 30cm snow tonight
01:21<goodger>no snow here --- no cloud, hence the below-freezing temperature :(
01:21<phorce1>Note that temps on the following page are F, not C --->

01:38<marco__>hmmm, this looks interesting, if not a bit radical:
01:39-!-cahoot [~radix@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
01:39<goodger>marco__: that is generally a good idea
01:40<goodger>unfortunately it tends to lead to things like /Program Files
01:40<marco__>goodger: hmmm, what's so unfortunate about it?
01:41-!-pipegeek_ [] has joined #debian
01:41<goodger>marco__: /usr/share/games/openttd turns into /User Files/Shared Files/Games/OpenTTD which is exceedingly long, contains many spaces, and has capital letters (UNIX is case-sensitive)
01:42<jm_>sounds similar to stallman's idea with each package in its own dir with symlinks in common places
01:42-!-kooola [] has joined #debian
01:42<marco__>goodger: which is a point the author makes: "Unfortunately /They Have Been/Corrupted By The/Marketdroid Naming Convention/. What's wrong with simple /usr/pkg/ or /usr/app/? These supposed “idiot users” that need /Long Names With Spaces And Capital Letters/So That They Can Understand It/ probably use some lame file manager that hides all system directories anyway."
01:42<goodger>marco__: it is a slippery slope
01:42<linux_stu>anyone know why i might see two processors listed in /proc/cpuinfo on my eee pc that only has one intel atom processor?
01:42-!-nihil [] has joined #debian
01:43<jm_>linux_stu: no, not anyone does - the answer is hyper threading
01:43<goodger>linux_stu: is it dual-core?
01:43<linux_stu>oh ok. goodger, no
01:44-!-adrian [] has joined #debian
01:44<linux_stu>hmm. i didn't know hyper threading would cause that to happen
01:45-!-dani [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
01:45<goodger>no, neither did I
01:45<goodger>linux_stu: please pastebin /proc/cpuinf
01:46<marco__>goodger: yeah. Maybe It's difficult to know what's a better evolutionary path for linux convention would be when so many people have so many different ideas on what would be best based on their own needs
01:47<goodger>marco__: the easiest option is to leave it alone
01:47<marco__>linus' "let everyone just work individually towards good things and then hope everything comes together in the end" admittedly has its flaws IMO
01:47<goodger>linux_stu: intriguing --- no idea, sorry...
01:48<marco__>goodger: yeah, I guess...
01:48<linux_stu>goodger, i had two people tell me it was due to hyper threading, and i believe them
01:48<jm_>it's obvious - look at core id - it's the same for both, with dual core CPU it's not the same
01:49<goodger>well, if it's not due to dual-coredness (as confirmed by the two coreid=0s) then presumably it's hyperthreating
01:49<marco__>well, good night everyone!
01:49<goodger>good night marco__
01:49<linux_stu>night marco__

09:15<dpkg>methinks downgrade is not possible with apt-get currently. No future support is anticipated. Some programs change the binary format of their files in a way that cannot be rolled back later, and package maintainer scripts provide ways to upgrade to new config file formats but not ways to downgrade.

10:02<enouf>aetheria: what i wrote can be expanded to two; blacklist and blacklist-initramfs .. it's a shell expansion syntax (as best i can explain it)
10:03<aetheria>enouf: i eventually guessed that. thanks
10:03<enouf>aetheria: np
10:03<aetheria>actually, i have a related question - i need to embed a variable in another variable
10:04<aetheria>like $(value1$(value2)) will that work?
10:04<enouf>i'm not great with shells, but some/many here are - there's also #bash on freenode if needed
10:04<aetheria>true. i will try that later
10:04<enouf>well, you want to be a bit more specific
10:04<enouf>what you wrote is more like nested variables
10:05<enouf>so you don't need 1000 escapes using backticks ` `
10:06<aetheria>i'm going to have variables like host1ipaddr host2ipaddr host1mac host2mac
10:06<aetheria>i can just string them together actually
10:06-!-znyto [] has joined #debian
10:07<aetheria>but i wanted to do something like host=host1 then just refer to $host$ipaddr

16:31<jthomas>But, if the server is set for UTF8 all over, and I use UTF8 and paste as UTF8, why cannot the server run the script? its the extra chars that are being entered by the ISO8859 but I don't know how or why its seeing them if its all utf8.
16:32<jthomas>hochron the command 'apt-get -f install' will fix an install, so remove apps that aren't installed right.

16:34<jthomas>sigius and hochron, if the local .deb is compatible, the 'dpkg -i file.bed && apt-get install -f' will install the deb file and then fix the dependencies; but if the deb file is not compaitble or there are no dependencies available, it will remove.

18:37<blast_hardcheese>tha_toadman: Why not just aptitude install nut? Do you have a reason to build from source?
18:37<adama>I have "@reboot svnserve -d -R -r /home/svn/" in root's crontab but there's a better way I'm sure, using init scripts
18:37<tha_toadman>blast_hardcheese: although i've ran "apt-get install libusb-0.1-4" and it says it's already installed
18:38<MrNaz>i tried installing debian on a box a few months ago, i think it was debian r4 but there were no drivers for my newer motherboard and hence the HDDs weren't showing up.... will r6 have an updated driver set or doesn't that get updated ?
18:38<tha_toadman>blast_hardcheese: my UPS, according to NUT's website has to have 2.2.2
18:38<blast_hardcheese>!pinning tha_toadman
18:38<blast_hardcheese>Gah, what's that command
18:39-!-mode/#debian [+l 365] by debhelper
18:39<dredtrake>adama : -R param mean read-only, so if i want to keep my server cofnig i erase it?
18:39<blast_hardcheese>I've seen it used but never used it myself
18:39<tha_toadman>blast_hardcheese: i've tried apt-get but 2.0.4 is what it wants to install ... this sucks! lol
18:39<adama>!tell tha_toadman -about pinning

18:41<blast_hardcheese>MrNaz: Try Etch-and-a-half, "EtchNHalf"
18:42<tha_toadman>blast_hardcheese: should i quit trying to manually build it and try the apt-get route with the pinning that guys recommended?

20:47<docidu>hrmm, so, what im trying to do is copy files from a mounted windows share on a deb etch server, the files are stored in progressive sub dirs on the share, i need to get only files that do not exist in an local archive directory (not the destination directory) automatically on a regular basis, having no luck figureing out where to start searching on this one
20:48<docidu>i suppose this is more a general question then a debian specific one though..

20:51-!-renheld [] has quit []
20:51<docidu>another service moves the files to the archive dir after they are processed
20:52<themill>a pair of find commands and a diff to compare them might be needed then. Or better, a find command feeding a loop that tests for existence and then schedules the file to be copied.

22:24<tha_toadman>can someone please explain the hell the problem is with new Debian disto's not working with AHCI (i assume is the problem)
22:25-!-githogori [] has joined #debian
22:25<tha_toadman>the 'testing' distro spits out 'block I/O errors' as does Ubuntu
22:25<tha_toadman>and i'm just trying to enter the installer
22:26<abrotman>so it's not just Debian ?
22:26<amphi>lenny works fine with ahci here - perhaps you have some unsupported controller?
22:26<tha_toadman>i have a sata drive (with sata dvd drive) and with debian testing or ubuntu (from 7.10 to 8.10) they all grip about it
22:27<tha_toadman>i have a gigabyte board...i'll go look
22:27<Ananth123>u could be having some bad sectors perhaps ?

22:48<mike>where could i find that
22:49<abrotman>in your gnome menu, there is a graphics submenu .. see which apps are there
22:49<mike>theres an image viewer but when i open it nothing is there
22:49<mike>it ask me to point it to a directory
22:49<abrotman>no, that won't be it
22:50<Ananth123>any images in your home directory ?
22:52<mike>yeah haha im lost XD

22:53-!-ramon [~ramon@] has quit [Quit: Saindo]
22:53<Ananth123>if you can find a filename there, you can probably search your whole linux partition for it......

23:03<Ananth123>and probably re-import them to a directory you specified ? :)
23:05<phorce1>so, I have a raid1 with one drive that has apparently had bad hardware failure (bios can no longer see it at boot). The other drive is doing it's thing and running the system fine. To replace the bad drive, I just format a new drive with the same partition scheme, mark the partitions all as linux raid autodetect, and plug it in?

23:08<alxd>maybe you should try installing gthumb first
23:08<twb>In official Debian release numbers, does the r6 part of 4.0r6 just indicate the version of the install media?

23:09<alxd>ah i see he left.. so well good luck
23:10-!-konrad [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
23:10<abrotman>twb: it's the 6th revision of the original 4.0 .. like a service pack roughly ..
23:10<phorce1>twb: no, it basically indicates that there were enough security updates to justify rolling out a new install of an existing release
23:10-!-NCommander [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
23:10<abrotman>not just security updates
23:11<Ananth123>so r6 is more like a revision number ?
23:11<twb>abrotman: but surely that only matters for the install media -- because everyone who has installed it already will "apt-get upgrade"
23:11-!-GoinEasy9 [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
23:11<abrotman>twb: you assume everyone has internet sources
23:12<twb>OK, so rather than "install media" I should have just said "media" or "distro media" or something?
23:12<twb>i.e. for people who use the media not just for the install, but for upgrading when rN goes to rN+1
23:13-!-ernesto [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
23:16-!-epilido [] has joined #debian
23:16<abrotman>but you can use 4.0r1 and easily get to 4.0r6
23:17<epilido>so if anyone cares in case the question comes up again. I had a dual monitor setup with ati fglrx module. the screens were reversed. in xorc.conf under first device section the Option needs to be "swapScreens" "on"
23:18<twb>Well anyway, I think I understand the answer even if I asked my question badly

23:30<abrotman>i know i know
23:31<alxd>its a windows compatible runtime enviroment you noob lol
23:31<gravity>I think it actually is now
23:32<gravity>Or not, never mind.
23:32<twb>gravity: hedging yer bets, eh?
23:32<alxd>nah its not emulating
23:32-!-abrotman [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
23:32<alxd>its porting the win system to unix
23:33<gravity>twb: No, I read somewhere that they had done a bit of emulation somewhere in the stack, but their myths page says it's not an emulator

23:37<twb>fretless-: XP runs in VMware.
23:37<fretless->twb: yeah thanks I know that already
23:37<fretless->I was asking if he had it setup currently

23:39<fretless->alxd: have you had any issues running any windows software in vmware
23:39<fretless->I used it back in the mid 90's when it first came out
23:40<fretless->I imagine they've improved on it a lot since then
23:40<alxd>fretless-: 90s?
23:40<fretless->yeah last century
23:40<twb>fretless-: I have issues with vmware-server including its own copies of apache and bind and completely screwing up my network configuration and generally being shitty.
23:40<fretless->I had windows 98 running
23:40<alxd>fretless-: yeh they improved some bits
23:41<twb>In particular I have issue with VMware 2.x console supporting Firefox (via tomcat, FFS) instead of GTK
23:41<alxd>seriously its close to the real system, you can connect to most peripherals
23:41<fretless->all I care about is that I want to run Linux on my system and I have to be able to use my CNC machine

23:43<fretless->nothing serious
23:43<phorce1>alxd: thanks for the link. Looks like my method should work too. I've fdisked the drive and created partitions that start/stop at exactly the same place as those on the still-working drive. No old raid left on the new drive. I'll pop it in when I get the server over here tomorrow and cross my fingers.
23:43<fretless->it's actually got a pretty small fingerprint

23:44<phorce1>alxd: maybe I'll boot a ghost CD first and image the existing drive .... hmmm, I wonder if that would work for "pre-building" the new half of the raid1 pair. That would be nice.
23:44<alxd>but 2GB doesnt hurt
23:44<fretless->this kind of shit bugs me
23:44<fretless->I want to try it out but
23:45<fretless->I can't screw over my working system
23:45<alxd>phorce1: i would like to help but my system is working. maybe i smash one drive to see how it works
23:46<phorce1>alxd: might not hurt to unplug the primary one day just to check that the system works
