00:37<matt0>I just installed debian with the net-install on a separate partition, am I able to manually add .deb packages from another OS to debian's partition then run it from debian with the command line?
00:37<k1lumin4t1>does anybody know if debian prepackaged fglrx ati driver is exactly the same as the one in the ati drivers download website?
00:37<k1lumin4t1>matt0, yes, but no
00:38<matt0>No what
00:38<k1lumin4t1>matt0, is possible, at certain expences, but it's not recommendable

00:40<matt0>Well, it's the only option other then moving my computer to my wireless router and plugging it in there, seeing as i'm not quite sure how to get my wireless card's drivers
00:40<dmoerner>matt0: it is an older version
00:41<matt0>The net install
00:41<k1lumin4t1>matt0, ¿?
00:42<matt0>Wait, older version of what?
00:42<k1lumin4t1>matt0, please, explain your actual problem
00:43<dmoerner>matt0: sorry, wrong person
00:43<dmoerner>k1lumin4t1: the fgrlx driver is an older version most likely
00:43<k1lumin4t1>dmoerner, yes, but is it actually dlded from the very same site?
00:43<k1lumin4t1>dmoerner, debian's 8-7 is the same as ATI 8.7?
00:43<k1lumin4t1>ok, thanks
00:43<matt0>I was just wondering about manually adding a .deb package from ubuntu then running it from debian.
00:44<k1lumin4t1>matt0, not possible
00:44<k1lumin4t1>matt0, what for?¿
00:45<dmoerner>k1lumin4t1: read get-orig-source target in
00:45<dmoerner>for an exact account of how the upstream tarball is changed into the .orig.tar.gz
00:45<dmoerner>the patches in are then applied
00:46<matt0>So I can get a X windows system running then a desktop environment
00:46<k1lumin4t1>matt0, not sure what you're trying to say

01:27<astronut>if i wanted to do "foo < bar" but have a delay between each line in bar getting passed to foo, is there a standard utility to do that or do i have to spin my own?
01:27-!-fddfoo [~antares@] has joined #debian
01:27-!-streuner [] has joined #debian
01:28<dmoerner>something like this maybe? just a guess: while read $(bar); do foo < bar; done

01:28<astronut>that won't work

04:00<gsimmons>brianwillis1984: IIRC, you were requested to install testing ("Lenny") to correct an issue involving your Realtek-based Cardbus Ethernet controller.
04:00<brianwillis1984>so where could i find this lenny
04:01<gsimmons>!install testing
04:01<dpkg>To install testing, see
04:01-!-aleix [~aleix@] has joined #debian
04:02<brianwillis1984>and use this right lenny RC1 release
04:02<gsimmons>brianwillis1984: That's right. A netinst image (/msg dpkg netinst) should be sufficient, provided you have an available Internet connection and your network hardware is detected.
04:02<brianwillis1984>and what are amd64 alpha arm,etc mean
04:03<brianwillis1984>which one should i choose
04:03<gsimmons>brianwillis1984: They are ports for various system architectures. You would want i386 for use your legacy hardware.
04:03<gsimmons>s/use your/use on your/
04:04<brianwillis1984>ok thanks simmons
04:05-!-Jpdota [~dignan@] has joined #debian
04:05<brianwillis1984>so not to sound stuipd or anything just to be clear i should download debian i386 netinst right?
04:05<gsimmons>brianwillis1984: That's right.
04:06<brianwillis1984>what is netinst?
04:06<dpkg>it has been said that 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>
04:06<brianwillis1984>ok so i dont have to be on the net to install?
04:07<Jpdota>brianwillis1984: if you use the netinst cd you do need to be
04:07<gsimmons>brianwillis1984: You can install the base system, but for anything else, you'll need an Internet connection available to download additional software.
04:08<Jpdota>netinst does the base?
04:08<gsimmons>Jpdota: That's right.
04:08<Jpdota>maybe i'm thinking of the businesscard cd
04:08<brianwillis1984>well simmions if u remember right i was was having drivers issues with the pcmia card?
04:09<brianwillis1984>couldnt get on the net

04:13<gsimmons>brianwillis1984: You may want to acquire and install from one of the available CD or DVD images. Though if you do have available recordable media, burning and testing the Lenny netinst image (to at least determine if this is still an issue) would be the faster initial option.

08:02<hever>sure there is...
08:02<jm_>ok I'll waste my time on pysol instead

08:54<donny>hi all. i'm on etch experiencing a segfault in strcpy(), but from within gdb i can see that strcpy()'s argument are both rather sane, and i can modify the destination argument so it isn't in a readonly segment or anything. any ideas would be greatly appreciated
08:54-!-ZimmE [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
08:54<jm_>donny: perhaps program is behaving differently when not compiled with -g or not run in debugger
08:55-!-nadie [] has joined #debian
08:55<donny>jm_: i'm sorry for being unclear. it is segfaulting within gdb as well. i cannot discern why

08:57<jm_>donny: strcpy?
08:57<donny>jm_: what arguments shall i give it?

09:01<jm_>donny: perhaps addresses are overlaping - did you verify that? also try vlgrind

09:01<donny>jm_: what do you mean about address overlap?
09:01<jm_>valgrind even
09:01<nadie>hi! anyone has tested ext4 on sid?
09:01<jm_>donny: man strcpy
09:01<donny>jm_: ah i see what you mean
09:02<donny>let me check
09:02<donny>hmm, no the arguments to strcpy() are very disparate, much further apart than the strings are wide (only 10 characters + null terminator, addresses like 0x600000 bytes apart)

09:04<donny>how do i step one instruction at a tiem in gdb? i don't have debugging symbols for libc, when i said "step" it ran by many instructions

09:05<donny>jm_: what should i do with valgrind? i've never used it before. i thought it was for diagnosing memory allocation issues with the libc allocator
09:05<jm_>donny: valgrind appname
09:05<donny>jm_: it segfaulted at the same address it did before, strcpy+19
09:06<donny>i don't know how to get register values in gdb either

10:11<enouf>l4ncel0t: do you mean cpufreqd pkgs?
10:12<dpkg>somebody said cpufreq was a patch ( to the 2.4.x kernels to support frequency scaling on mobile x86, PowerPC and ARM processors. It has been merged into the 2.6.x series. It provides a simple interface (/proc/cpufreq) through which userspace daemons like cpudynd (in the "cpudyn" package) can throttle processor speed to save power when the system is idle.

11:48<glax>if I have 6 GB of ram install why etch only detect 3GB?
11:49<OdyX>glax: because you need a special 32 bits kernel or a 64 bits kernel
11:49-!-scorpio28 [~scorpio@] has joined #debian
11:49<OdyX>32 bits is only enough to address 4 Gigs
11:49<Fafnir>glax, it's a limitation on 32bit systems. Use linux-server image or enable PAE support in kernel
11:50<dpkg>-bigmem linux-images support up to 64GB of ram. If you have more than about 3.4 GB of ram, install and use this to see everything past the sub ~3.4 GB limit.
11:50<enouf>glax: if the CPU is 64bits, you could also use an amd64 kernel from debian

13:48<enouf>and whatever issues you have - seen /msg dpkg automount? wouldn't you use pmount to mount as a user?
13:48<dpkg>pmount is, like, "policy mount", an application to make it easier to (un)mount removable media such as USB flash memory sticks. e.g. as normal user, "pmount sda1" mounts it at /media/sda1. no superuser. no need to create a mount point. nb you'll need to be in the plugdev group (but you'll know that from /usr/share/doc/pmount).

18:33<amphi>tosi: it would be easier; you _can_ move the stuff around yourself, but if you're new to linux, you might be better of reinstalling and do it the way you want from there
18:33<Zathras>tosi, you should partition and move stuff to the other disk
18:33<themill>tosi: how much more stuff are you planning to install?
18:33<goodger>tosi: the system including applications is very unlikely to fill your 7G partition IMO
18:33<Zathras>and then mount those new partitions
18:33<mike>well now im not total waste so far ive helped to peopel with a complete sollution lol
18:33<goodger>tosi: you are better off using the 33G partition for /home
18:33<tosi>how do i can that starting now without reinstalling
18:34<tosi>i dont care about the stuff already on the 7gb... i just want to use the 33gb from now on
18:34-!-giulio [~giulio@] has joined #debian
18:34<Zathras>tosi, why? Moving stuff is complicated if you are new to Linux and most likely you will run inti huge problems. A fresh install is way easier
18:35<goodger>giulio: good point
18:35<tosi>im afraid to reinstall because i have not recorded all the sources and aptitudes i need
18:35-!-giulio [~giulio@] has quit []
18:36<goodger>tosi: you can just back up /etc/apt/sources.list, and dump your package list to a file from which you can reinstall them quite easily after reinstallation
18:36<themill>tosi: just leave debian installed on the 7GB drive and put all your data (i.e. /home) on the 33GB drive

18:39<tosi>ok so when i reinstall... if i want the 7GB drive to be clean with only the debian install and have all other files on the 33GB what folders do i point to the 33
18:39<themill>there's no need to reinstall to do this. In fact, I wouldn't recommend it.
18:40<tosi>then what do i do
18:40-!-mastroquet_ [] has quit [Quit: WeeChat 0.2.6]

18:42<tosi>now i wonder when i click computer>filesystem only the stats for my 7GB come up

18:42-!-greymaus [] has quit []
18:42<goodger>tosi: that's because it's in the root filesystem at that point, which is mounted on the smaller one

20:22<goodger>skimp: if you're referring to the app labelled as Text Editor in the gnome menu, it's called gedit
20:22<goodger>that's its package name also IIRC. removing it may ask you to remove gnome-something but that will just be a metapackage

20:50<norbert_>hey there, I have a question
20:50<goodger>go ahead, norbert_
20:51<norbert_>I'm happily using Debian testing, with 2G or ram I bought today
20:51<norbert_>everything is fine, I'm just wondering why free -m shows that 1949 MB memory is in use
20:51<norbert_>when I use top and sort by memory, I can tell that only about 15% of all memory is actually in use
20:51<abrotman>!free ram
20:51<dpkg>Unlike information, your computer's memory does *not* want to be free. Free RAM is wasted RAM! Linux tries to use free physical memory for caching files from disk which speeds up disk access considerably. Linux releases RAM from these caches if programs need it. If you want to know how much physical memory the free(1) tool says you have left for program use, it's 'free' + 'buffers' + 'cache'. Also ask me about <swapwake>.
20:52<goodger>I'm using 1998 atm
20:52<norbert_>hum... ok
20:52<goodger>linux uses memory to cache files and such

21:41<gsimmons>mike: You may need to install 'linux-uvc-source' from lenny, in order to compile on 2.6.24.
21:42<abrotman>or use the non-etchnhalf :)
21:42<mike>ok how do i do that gsimmons?
21:42-!-patrich [] has quit []
21:42<mike>gsmimmons is awesome haha always helpin me out even though im an idiot
21:43<goodger>I concur
21:43<mike>ok so how do i do the lenny thing?
21:43-!-geltonas [] has joined #debian
21:44<geltonas>who knows how to set login on the terminal?
21:44<mike>goodger, which are you concuring on that hes awesome or that im an idiot?
21:44<goodger>just concurring
21:45<Xenguy>geltonas: "set login" ?
21:45<mike>takin the easy way out eh...
21:45<norbert_>geltonas: by "login" you mean the text that is being displayed?
21:46<geltonas>i mean when I login I want to see kind of terminal enviroment
21:46<tosi>i love cheese
21:46<geltonas>yust a text
21:46<Xenguy>geltonas: define "different"
21:46<Xenguy>geltonas: /etc/motd ?
21:46<geltonas>I'LL TRY NOW
21:47<mike>hey abrotman, it says i allready have a version installed?
21:47<abrotman>a version ?
21:47<gsimmons>mike: Just a moment, I'll confirm with a build over here. But if you don't need 2.6.24 (you will for the b43 driver), just boot back into 2.6.18 (and run "m-a a-i linux-uvc") as abrotman suggested.
21:47<mike>of linux-uvc-source
21:48-!-esop [~wade@] has left #debian []
21:48<mike>ok so hwo do i boot back into the other kernal ?
21:49<gsimmons>mike: Sorry, 'linux-uvc-source' was removed. It's either 2.6.18 or 2.6.26 (via backports).
21:49<geltonas>yust paste this string define "different" to this file?
21:49<mike>i have version 0.1.0.svn54-3
21:49<geltonas>becouse i get nothing to define
21:49<norbert_>I'm pretty sure I can get mike's webcam work within 7 minutes
21:50<mike>ok norbert start..
21:50<abrotman>norbert_: that's cheating
21:50<norbert_>abrotman: why is it cheating?
21:50<abrotman>norbert_: and don't you think that depends on the speed of his ISP and his computer? :)
21:50<Xenguy>geltonas: sorry, I was confused. I really don't know what your actual question is. If you want a 'message' to come up when you login, then backup /etc/motd, then try customizing it
21:50<norbert_>abrotman: well yeah, the 7 minutes is a guess :)
21:50<mike>lol norbert you got till 10 my time start
21:50<mike>thats 10 min
21:50<norbert_>abrotman: can I give it a shot?

22:14<abrotman>norbert_: i don't .. i thought it had the driver .. the .26 at backports.or ghsould
22:14<abrotman>the linux-uvc won't build with the .24 apparently ...
22:14<superjet_busy>norbert_: thanks again for the hints :)

22:53<mike>v4l2: ioctl dequeue buffer failed: Invalid argument, idx = 0

22:54<mike>it isnt in the sound and video menue
22:54<mike>and i installed it
22:54<norbert_>then just run $ kdetv
22:54<norbert_>if you have /dev/video0, kdetv should work
22:55-!-hingwah [] has joined #debian
22:55<norbert_>the error mplayer gives you just means it's an old version

23:11<norbert_>anaya: welcome
23:11<snogglethorpe>audio is always kind of sucky though even in lenny
23:12<blaw>hmm.. maybe is a stupid question but.. i need an antivirus to scan pendrives, usb flash and that stuff
23:12<stew>blaw: clamav
23:12<anaya>and, i new in debian
23:12<norbert_>yes, clamav and also: clamav-daemon
23:13<snogglethorpe>how often do you actually execute stuff from usb memory though?
23:13<anaya>speak a litle english
23:13<norbert_>anaya: well, we hope you like it :)
23:13<blaw>clamav is a console app? what's clamav-daemon?
23:14<anaya>is the daemon of clamav
23:14<norbert_>!tell norbert_ daemon
23:14<craigevil>if your running kde there is klamav a kde frontend to clamav
23:14<anaya>a deamon is a program executed ever :P in second plain :P
23:14<norbert_>learning how to help people :P
23:14<blaw>i use gnone
23:15<norbert_>"in *nix and other computer multitasking operating systems, a daemon is a computer program that runs in the background, rather than under the direct control of a user"
23:16<blaw>well.. windows virus cant f*ck up my deb, right?
23:16<snogglethorpe>blaw: of course, there's no need to stick with pure gnome or pure kde
23:16<blaw>(in new in this(linux))
23:16<snogglethorpe>blaw: you can mix-n-match as you like
23:16-!-freealan [] has joined #debian
23:17<goodger>blaw: that's correct, the only use for clamav is to scan things on their way to windows
23:18<goodger>(unless you use wine on viruses, but that's pretty silly)
23:19-!-uva [] has joined #debian
23:19<norbert_>although there are Linux viruses as well
23:19<anaya>clamav search virus only for windows ???
23:19<goodger>although the exploits that those viruses exploit were patched pretty much on the same day
23:20<blaw>i like debian :) is fun
23:20<blaw>i was a suse user before deb
23:20<snogglethorpe>norbert_: viruses have attack vectors though, and I think windows users are much more likely to tickle them than debian users...
23:20<snogglethorpe>norbert_: for instance, no auto-execute from usb sticks
23:20-!-qw__ [] has joined #debian

23:33-!-burns [~burns@] has joined #debian
23:33<s3a>norbert_, highlight as if it was paper (like when people use yellow highlighters to highlight important stuff)
23:33<norbert_>s3a: if so, try kpdf or better yet convert it with pdftotext to prevent getting all these newlines
23:34<s3a>norbert_, not not select, i meant like highlight like on virtual paper
23:34<norbert_>s3a: temporarily or to save the text with highlights?
23:34<mike>the lenny upgrade doesnt liek me =[
