00:00<burnclouds>I'm in the states an I was thinking about getting a USB thing for internet over GSM but i didn't know if it would work with linux
00:00<burnclouds>or if the service just sucked.
00:00-!-dmoerner [] has quit [Quit: leaving]
00:01<engywuck_>GSM? that's like ancient modem
00:01<burnclouds>GSM is what verizon uses.
00:01<engywuck_>and my stick wasn't runnable from linux, dunno why
00:01<engywuck_>module compiled but couldn't connect

00:01<engywuck_>*had* to use windows for 9 months
00:02<engywuck_>well, then it may work
00:02<engywuck_>oh well, I *was* getting my MCSE in that time, so.... :D
00:02<burnclouds>sorry about your luck. I *have* to use windows for work... I run cygwin and do a lot of ssh to a linux box :-D
00:03<burnclouds>well unix i guess
00:03<burnclouds>HP-UX, Solaris, Tru64, AIX, RHEL (ok linux)

00:05<engywuck_>there are still HP-UX boxes around?
00:05<engywuck_>we had that 10 years ago on our workstation in theoretical physics
00:05<burnclouds>HP-UX 11i v3.2
00:06<burnclouds>it's only like 2yrs old or so
00:06<burnclouds>It's newer than windows XP
00:06<aaldama>how can i activate effects in xubuntu
00:06-!-wired [] has quit [Quit: Lost terminal]
00:06<burnclouds>like compiz?
00:07-!-jeff_hann [~arares@] has joined #debian
00:07<burnclouds>I'm not familiar with xfce. sorry
00:08<aaldama>ok thanks
00:08<burnclouds>that might help
00:09<engywuck_>!dpkg ubuntu
00:09<dpkg>Ubuntu is based on Debian, but it is not Debian, and it is unlikely to live up to Debian's standards (see <Debian policy>). Only Debian is supported on #debian. Use #ubuntu ( instead. Even if the channel happens to be less helpful, support for distributions other than Debian is offtopic on #debian. See also <based on debian>.
00:11<burnclouds>ubuntu may be "off topic" but as it's based on debian and I happen to use both and the channel isn't busy... I see no point in shunning our brothren.
00:11<burnclouds>Shun the non-believer... shunnnn na
00:11<aaldama>im not very familiar with linux i need to read some information for learn more about this product
00:11<engywuck_>burn them on the stake!
00:11<engywuck_>na, just wanted to point in the correct direction for next time

00:14<burnclouds>I'm guessing wget-porn... ? guess not...
00:15<aaldama>hey does anyone know if i could install a linksys wifi usb thing with m$ drivers in ubuntu
00:15<burnclouds>the driver wrapper "ndiswrapper"
00:15<burnclouds>!dpkg ndiswrapper
00:15<dpkg>methinks ndiswrapper is a way to wrap Windows drivers so that they can be used on Linux (x86 or x86-64 only). If there is a Linux driver for your device, first consider that instead, for wireless LAN, ask me about <wireless>; if there isn't, ask me about <ndiswrapper one-liner> to install. #ndiswrapper @

00:17<engywuck_>no worries, if we don't have anything better to do
00:17<engywuck_>we'll even help ubuntu users :)
00:17<burnclouds>I should have guessed a lib package.
00:18<burnclouds>thats probably 450 of the 500 packages...
00:18-!-fike [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:18<burnclouds>the other 50 are xserver-xorg-video-...

00:18<burnclouds>!dpgk kstars
00:18<cesurasean>Ok, when I place a symbolic link to bugzilla, I just get this redirect page
00:18-!-Chaos`Eternal [~chaos@] has joined #debian

00:18<cesurasean>anyone have a clue why it's redirecting to a different page?
00:18-!-Chaos`Eternal [~chaos@] has joined #debian
00:19<engywuck_>strange config file?
00:19<burnclouds>!dpkg kstars
00:19<engywuck_>kstars (1) - a desktop planetarium for KDE
00:20<burnclouds>why didn;t dpkg know that. (excluding my typo)
00:20<engywuck_>could have been uninstalled before upgrading :)
00:20<engywuck_>666 was libntfs-3g31 :D
00:21-!-Deuterium [~AlCapone@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:21<dmoerner>burnclouds: (a) you need to call info, (b) you say dpkg: or !, not both
00:21<dmoerner>dpkg: info kstars
00:21<dpkg>kstars: (desktop planetarium for KDE), section science, is optional. Version: 4:3.5.9-2 (sid), Packaged size: 3734 kB, Installed size: 6612 kB
00:22<engywuck_>dpkg: kstars
00:22<dpkg>engywuck_: I don't know, could you explain it?
00:22<engywuck_>dpkg: info kstars lenny
00:22<burnclouds>dpkg: dpkg
00:22<dpkg>dpkg is probably the program used by debian to install and remove packages, "man dpkg". Also ask me about <apt howto>. The main info bot in #debian is also called dpkg; ask me about <dpkgbot>.
00:22<dpkg>kstars: (desktop planetarium for KDE), section science, is optional. Version: 4:3.5.9-2 (lenny), Packaged size: 3734 kB, Installed size: 6612 kB

00:23-!-[tggrbot] [] has quit []
00:24<engywuck_>dpkg: info fdisk potato
00:24<burnclouds>I have an NTFS drive that when I try to mount it it is always read only unless I "sudo mount -o force /dev/sdc1 /mnt/sdc"
00:24<engywuck_>that's normal
00:24<burnclouds>any ideas how to make it "user" mount frendly
00:24<engywuck_>standard ntfs driver in kernel has ro
00:24<burnclouds>I have ntfs3-g
00:24-!-jpablo [~chatzilla@] has joined #debian
00:24-!-zythmer [] has joined #debian
00:24<engywuck_>because writing is still considered "you know what you do" by Linus ^^
00:25<engywuck_>ntfs-3g shold work
00:25<engywuck_>well, in lenny anyway
00:25<burnclouds>can I disable the kernel driver and only use ntfs3-g?
00:25<burnclouds>I should know how to do that but I don;t
00:25<engywuck_>ntfs-3g is fuse, methinks?
00:25<burnclouds>Yeah... I thank thats right
00:26<engywuck_>i *think* you could try specifying "ntfs-3g" in fstab
00:26-!-Deuterium [~AlCapone@] has joined #debian
00:26<burnclouds>I think i did. But as I'm not on that box and I'm not near that box... I guess I'll just have to check later.
00:26<engywuck_>You can also make NTFS to be mounted during boot by adding the following line to the end of the /etc/fstab file: /dev/sda1 /mnt/windows ntfs-3g defaults 0 0
00:27<Supaplex>!stab ntfs.autofragmentation=1
00:27*dpkg runs at ntfs.autofragmentation=1 with an origami Swiss Army knife, and inflicts a nasty paper cut.
00:28<burnclouds>I think " /dev/sda1 /mnt/windows ntfs-3g defaults 0 0
00:29<burnclouds>is very similar to what i have.
00:29<burnclouds>I know I specified ntfs-3g
00:29<burnclouds>and the drive is sdc1
00:30<burnclouds>I think I have user,defaults 0 0
00:30-!-hw [] has quit [Quit: Quitte]
00:31<burnclouds>I'm rather new to IRC ... are there any other bots I should be aware of?
00:31<engywuck_>perhaps specifying rw explicitely?
00:32<burnclouds>I've tried that.
00:32<engywuck_>!dpkg bots
00:32<dpkg>All your bots are belong to us, or #debian-bots, or dpkg, apt, ravenbird, badgers, piggy, debhelper, judd. Are we not men? If you prick us, do we not bleed? Err... oil anyway.
00:32<dpkg>Badgers, Badgers, Badgers, Badgers, Mushroom, Mushroom, Snake !!, or make great gifts, fun for the whole family

00:34<cesurasean>does anyone know why I can't login to phpmyadmin under debian etch? I just upgraded, and it seems the config file must have changed or something.
00:34<engywuck_>look at the errors?
00:34<engywuck_>perhaps you can set a higher loglevel somewhere?
00:34-!-jeff_hann [~arares@] has joined #debian
00:35<engywuck_>since I don't have phpmyadmin installed right now I don't know
00:36<burnclouds>take a look at /var/log/mysql*

00:40<cesurasean>how do I get the file out of a deb file?
00:40<engywuck_>easiest way: with midnight commander
00:40<burnclouds>use a package manager. unzip? or the GUI ark
00:40<dmoerner>cesurasean: just use ar -x to extract the deb and then sift through it
00:40<burnclouds>that's the best way
00:40<cesurasean>I'm running Windows. :)
00:41<dmoerner>cesurasean: is it maintained in a vcs?
00:41<dmoerner>that would be the easiest way to grab a ile

00:44<burnclouds>well.. I've been up for what feels like 26hrs now. Good night, day... I don't know any more. Good times!
00:44<cesurasean>that's a completely different file than what was upgraded to two of my machines

03:59<aaroninfidel>streuner_, yep, I'm trying to use synaesthesia with esd but, I don't know how to use it with rhythmbox
04:00<aaroninfidel>streuner_, any ideas?
04:00<streuner_>yes :-)
04:00<dpkg>hmm... esd is the enhanced segfault daemon, or the Enlightened Sound Daemon. Some interesting things that can be done include using 'mpg123' on a remote computer, and having it connect to a local esound daemon. AKA: Evil Sound Daemon, or "my views on esd are mostly unprintable." -- Alan Cox, or an EarSoreDaemon
04:00<aaroninfidel>ah, thanks :P

04:02-!-ifvoid [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
04:02<aaroninfidel>streuner_, so, in other words... no there isn't.
04:03<streuner_>good, just disable ESD and run "alsaconf" :-)
04:03<streuner_>aptitude install alsa-utils
04:04<aaroninfidel>do you recommend me using aptitude vs apt-get?
04:05<aaroninfidel>how come?
04:05<streuner_>aptitutde is the tool for new Debian Users...
04:05*streuner_ cant spell anymore
04:05<dpkg>it has been said that aptitude is now the recommended tool for managing packages on your debian system. You can use it as a CLI replacement for apt-get; it keeps track of automatically installed packages and will offer to remove them when no longer required. Aptitude, like apt-get in lenny/sid, also installs "Recommended" packages that are usually required but you have the option not to install them. Ask me about <why aptitude> <why not aptitude> ...
04:06<aaroninfidel>I see.
04:06<aaroninfidel>alsaconf didn't work even after I installed the tools
04:07<hekatomb>shouldn't really need alsaconf
04:07<petern>us long term "just users" of debian still use apt-get
04:08<petern>because aptitude was that slow text gui thing originally...
04:08<aaroninfidel>what do you guys use for your audio players? I'm using rhythmbox, anything else better IYO?
04:08<petern>and there's nothing mentioned when running apt-get that says aptitude should be used...
04:08<streuner_>aaroninfidel: still xmms and juk
04:09<aaroninfidel>streuner_, is there a gui for that? I'm using Xfce
04:09<streuner_>!info juk
04:09<dpkg>extra, extra, read all about it, juk is some jukebox software written by some kde geeks that is here
04:09<dpkg>juk: (music organizer and player for KDE), section sound, is optional. Version: 4:3.5.9-3 (sid), Packaged size: 726 kB, Installed size: 1740 kB
04:10<streuner_>but it works on any windowmanager/DE as well..

10:49<abrotman>!install kde
10:49<dpkg>The metapackage 'kde' installs tons of stuff (almost the full KDE), 'kde-core' only the core, 'kdebase' is the smallest. To install KDE instead of GNOME during Debian installation if you're not installing from the KDE CD, supply "tasks=standard, kde-desktop" at the boot prompt of any of the installers. For more details, see, or ask me about <kde version>
10:49<fxiny>xmonad awesome . plenty
10:50<burnclouds>sudo apt-get install kde-core kdebase; sudo apt-get remove konqueror
10:50<fxiny>leonardo: dependencies , see yourself by running : aptitude -s purge konqueror

10:51<leonardo>what -s meand?
10:51-!-awe [] has joined #debian
10:51<abrotman>!why aptitude
10:51<dpkg>aptitude has more advanced conflict/dependency resolution than other tools, it has far more advanced searching available, and will automatically uninstall unneeded dependencies, read /usr/share/doc/aptitude/README for more info. Aptitude can also remove or purge one package at the same time as installing others all from the command line, making it much easier to recover from broken dependencies.
10:52<abrotman>and not everyone has sudo configured

13:03<dpkg>skype is, like, a proprietary cross-platform VoIP program which Debian cannot distribute due to its restrictive license. Packages are available from or use the sources.list line "deb stable non-free"
13:03<Engywuck>deb stable non-free
13:03<zeev>is there an open source alternative?
13:03<zeev>gtk based?
13:03<Engywuck>i should have known that dpkg knows this.... :)
13:03<Engywuck>if you want to connect to skype users: not that I'm aware of
13:04<themill>zeev: not to talk to skype users, but you can use ekiga to chat to other SIP users
13:04<dpkg>well, ekiga is a H323 and SIP compatible VoIP client, that supports video chat and is mostly compatible with the proprietary program "netmeeting". formerly known as 'gnomemeeting'
13:04<zeev>so it has chat and user login notification?

17:22<dr|z3d>nutshell42: Sure, it does take the devs a while to address some issues :/
17:23<nutshell42>but firefox for windows nowadays doesn't use more ram than opera which is good
17:23<ranix>what good is your ram if you're not using it
17:23<nutshell42>dr|z3d: it's not just about how it took them years, it's about how they didn't acknowledge the issue
17:23<ranix>they weren't entirely mistaken
17:23<nutshell42>ranix: I thought you were mr anti-bloat
17:23<nutshell42>and they were mistaken
17:23<dr|z3d>nutshell42: I'm agreeing with you, broadly. They're an awkward bunch at times.
17:23<nutshell42>firefox didn't use the memory
17:24<nutshell42>it just occupied it and refused to withdraw
17:24<ranix>I'm not familiar with the issue
17:24-!-dag [] has left #debian [Sto andando via]
17:24<ranix>I was under the assumption that they had a purpose of allocating ram
17:25<nutshell42>dr|z3d: yeah, i hate that attitude. That's where GNOME lost me. The early 2.x releases. Had they just come out and said "sorry guys, feature's are gonna take a while, we just had a rewrite and code doesn't write itself" I wouldn't have had a problem with it
17:25<dr|z3d>ranix: In Fx3 they introduced jemalloc functionality to recover lost ram and better address memory leaks.
17:26<ranix>I'm not familiar with large projects, but I find it difficult to fathom how you could have an unsolveable memory leak
17:26<nutshell42>similarily kde 4.0 was crap, 4.1 barely usable, but imho the devs handled the whole issue better. They came out and said "we have to release at some time if we don't want to turn into e17" =P
17:26<nutshell42>ranix: afaik the problem was that firefox wouldn't "defrag" its allocated memory
17:27<nutshell42>so every time it had to render a page that didn't fit into holes in its current memory
17:27<nutshell42>it would just request more from the system
17:27<ranix>you sound like you're not familiar with the concept of heap vs stack
17:27<nutshell42>that way it consumed more and more as time went by
17:27<ranix>there is no "claimed but unused memory"

17:29<nutshell42>i didn't look into the issue, because frankly i don't care
17:29<ranix>that's a textbook memory leak and while it's not trivial to solve it's by no means impossible
17:30<nutshell42>i just know that some guy on some page explained it that way and it was more or less consistent with firefox behaviour
17:30<ranix>and there are even ways of tracking when you have an allocated block of memory owned by your program that has no pointers to a member on the stack

17:49<asserp>this machine has only 9 processors an i can use only two?
17:51<dr|z3d>asserp: You're running on a PS3?
17:51<asserp>because it can handle af9015
17:52<dr|z3d>You should be able to use all the cores except those reserved for graphics. In theory, at least.
17:52<asserp>what i have read 8n of them
17:52<nutshell42>asserp: yep, the rsx is off-limits (so ppl don't write games for the ps3 without paying sony)
17:53<nutshell42>and of the 7 spe's of the cell, one is reserved for the ps3's own os iirc
17:53<nutshell42>so that leaves you with the ppc core and 6 spe's
17:54-!-spacepup [] has joined #debian
17:54<nutshell42>unfortunately unless I'm mistaken there's still no media player that can use an spe for decoding which would make the ps3 one kick-ass media center
17:54<nutshell42>instead everything gets done on the barebones ppc core which just doesn't cut it
17:55<ranix>DRM strikes again
17:55<asserp>what is spe?
17:56<ranix>GPLv4 should say something about crippling your hardware when using it for OSS
17:56<nutshell42>synergistic processing element
17:56<ranix>IMO it's tivoism
17:56<dr|z3d>Aka the graphics subsystem, the spe, no?
17:56<nutshell42>vector units
17:56<dr|z3d>I forget offhand, remind me.. ah. Right.
17:57<nutshell42>no logic, no µops, out-of-order or anything else
17:57<nutshell42>you just put some vectorized code in the 256kb cache and then stream the data
17:57<nutshell42>extremely fast
17:57<nutshell42>ranix: got nothing to do with drm, it's just a pita to program for those things
17:57<nutshell42>and noone wants to do it
17:58<nutshell42>iirc sony once had a demo of one cell decoding 40 or something hd video streams at the same time
17:58<nutshell42>so the power is there
17:58<nutshell42>but as i said, those things have none of the neat little tricks your average cpu accumulated over the last 20 years
17:59<ranix>nutshell42: IIRC, the system cuts off access to the other processor cores besides the PPC if not run in whatever special mode it goes into when a game is inserted
17:59<nutshell42>so you need either an extremely good compiler, or a lot of time
17:59<ranix>similarly to how the Wii blocks access to Wii functions when running a gamecube game
17:59<nutshell42>ranix: afaik the only limitation is that you have no access to the graphics hardware
17:59<nutshell42>just a framebuffer that you can write into
17:59<ranix>that could be it
18:00<ranix>I am probably just repeating hearsay and conjecture
18:00<nutshell42>but as mentioned above the cell is mostly fair game with the exception of the 1 spe reserved for the ps3 os
18:00-!-LoRez [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
18:00<nutshell42>it's not ideal
18:00<nutshell42>and you're right it definitely is a form of drm

18:01<nutshell42>but it would have more than enough power for 1080p h264 and 5.1 aac
18:01<ranix>I guess they were eating hardware cost to sell the things for quite some time
18:01<nutshell42>it's just too difficult to program for
18:01<nutshell42>which is basically sony's problem anyway
18:01<nutshell42>the ps3 is is one major fsck-up
18:01<ranix>so it would be a hit to the wallet if everyone was buying PS3s as computers and ignoring BluRay and games
18:01<nutshell42>or if you like sony, it's ahead of its time
18:01<ranix>so was the Saturn
18:01<nutshell42>larrabee is similar I think

18:20<ranix>bjern: probably want to shy clear of 64 bit kernels though
18:21<bjern>shy as in stay away from them?
18:21<ranix>unless you have 4+ gigs of rams
18:21<bjern>no, not that fortunate, only 2gb
18:22<enouf>bjern: so, upgrade your kernel, then cp that config into where you gzipped your debian source, then mv config-xxx-686 .config ; make oldconfig ; make menuconfig (alter your HZ) ; make-kpkg ... ; more here
18:22<petern>avoid 64 bit kernels? crazy advice
18:22<asserp>so, anybody knows how to activate my 4-6 other processors of my ps3 system?

21:25<engywuck>hi moto
21:25<moto_>i want to make a debian source package for software i've written, is there any sort of step-by-step guide? i've only casually used debian and everything i've googled is a little cryptic
21:27<engywuck>well, making package files is *always* cryptic (try microsofts packages for distribution with active directory...)
21:27<engywuck>isn't there anything in the wiki?

22:11<wxl>how to put two different ext3 partitions together without date damage?
22:12<wxl>i need somebody to help!
22:12-!-ElectricElf [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
22:12<dondelelcaro>wxl: put them together in what way?
22:12<engywuck>lkdhlfsh perhaps it's formatted as super-floppy (without MBR)?
22:12<engywuck>try to mount /dev/sda (without the 1) or fdisk -l /dev/sda
22:12<mattaway>dondelelcaro, and...
22:13<wxl>now i have a 10G ext3 partition and an other 4G ext3 ,i want to put 4G into 10G ext3
22:13<mattaway>i'm running a large numerical simulation, where if it was compiled for a core2 system it may be a bit faster
22:13<engywuck>wxl: multiple resize and copy?
22:13-!-ElectricElf [] has joined #debian
22:13<dondelelcaro>mattaway: well, your first step is to start benchmarking
22:13<engywuck>simplest solution: backup, delete partitions, create new one, restore
22:13<wxl>dondelelcaro:how to do
22:13<dondelelcaro>mattaway: since recompiling for specific processors can also make things slower
22:14<mattaway>sse2 instructions are fast iirc
22:14<dondelelcaro>mattaway: but even before that, you should be looking at optimizing your algorithm and methodology
22:14<mattaway>gsl supplies the algorithm
22:14<mattaway>and they know what they are doing...
22:15<wxl>engywuck:this is a idea,but .....
22:15<dondelelcaro>gsl supplies a bunch of different numerical algorithms; you're not necessarily using the best ones
22:15-!-upsy [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
22:15<dondelelcaro>(and the algorithms they supply aren't necessarily the best, either)
22:16<engywuck>wxl: I *have* done that with multiple uses of "mount both partitions, copy as mch as possible, umount them, resize the one to be deleted to smallest size possible with parted, expand the other"
22:17<dondelelcaro>but in any event, yes, you can recompile for core2 by recompiling the binary package and passing the correct CFLAGS options or by modifying gsl's debian/rules to do the same
22:17-!-simonrvn [] has quit [Quit: .]
22:17<engywuck>but I *won't* recommend that, especially not if you don't have backup
22:17<wxl>dondelelcaro:i used the gparted but it wants me to umount all partition even i finish it ,
22:17-!-burnclouds [] has left #debian ["bye bye"]
22:17<engywuck>you *cannot* resize ext3 while mounted
22:17<dondelelcaro>engywuck: you can, acutally.
22:17<dondelelcaro>wxl: in order to combine two partitions, you almost always have to copy the data to a third partition, combine them, and copy it back
22:17<engywuck>if you are a voodoo priest, perhaps
22:18<dondelelcaro>engywuck: no, it's one of the features of ext3.
22:18<dondelelcaro>(where resize means grow, of course)
22:18-!-muammar [~muammar@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
22:18<engywuck>but you have to shrink at least one partition
22:18<dondelelcaro>actually, I think it can shrink online too
22:18<dondelelcaro>I've just never done that
22:18<engywuck>if you don't have enough place on the first one
22:19<engywuck>oh, and you can only expand to bigger sector numbers
22:19-!-dmoerner [] has quit [Quit: leaving]
22:19<wxl>dondelelcaro:i once heared thant fdisk can combine two without date damage,is it really?
22:19<dondelelcaro>wxl: not without serious magic, no.
22:19<engywuck>and some other problems
22:19-!-dmoerner [] has joined #debian
22:19<dondelelcaro>wxl: fdisk only deals with partitions anyway; it knows nothing of filesystems.
22:20<engywuck>easiest way: backup, delet partitions, create new one, restore
22:20<engywuck>especially fpor only 14 gig of data ^^
22:20-!-muammar [~muammar@] has joined #debian
