02:20<sundaymorning>I'm running debian lenny and I've found a bug. I reported it and the maintainer asked me if I could try gnome-settings-daemon
02:20<sundaymorning>so he said he couldn't reproduce it with libxklavier and gnome-settings-daemon from experimental.
02:21<sundaymorning>and he asked if I could confirm. Can I somehow just install those two packages from experimental?

02:33<heffay>my nvidia server settings and xorg.conf specify 75hz
02:34<wired>Is themill in here?

02:37<wired>a user yesterday that told me about backports and the java packages
02:38<cheal>wired: what do you mean by "the proper java package"?
02:38<wired>so it will work with iceweasle
02:38<wired>it worked but i had to reformat
02:38<wired>now it doesnt work
02:38<wired>im not sure what the proper package to get
02:39-!-mode/#debian [+l 352] by debhelper
02:39<jm_>sun-javaX-plugin is the proper package
02:39<wired>it was something else last time, but ill try that
02:39<jm_>heffay: look inthe logfile to see what monitor capabilities driver has detected
02:40<wired>not a package
02:40<jm_>replace X with the actual number
02:40<wired>ok thanks
02:42<wired>i did -jre but didnt work
02:42<jm_>jre doesn't containt browser plugin symlink

02:43<heffay>it just says validated mode 1024x768_75+0+0
02:44<wired>i shouldnt have anything else hey?
02:44-!-kingsley [~kingsley@] has joined #debian
02:45<wired>sweet worked.
02:46<heffay>i also cant change my gcc version to 4.1. 4.1 is install and when i CC=/usr/bin/gcc4.1, cc --version keeps telling me 4.3
02:47<jm_>CC=/usr/bla merely sets an environment variable, doesn't change which cc runs
02:47<jm_>the idea is to do CC=foo ./configure or make CC=foo or similar
02:48<heffay>when i try to set that variable to 4.1 to run the nvidia driver install it keeps telling me the gcc version doesnt match
02:48-!-aleix [~aleix@] has joined #debian
02:48<jm_>just use m-a, it should work fine
02:49<heffay>m -a?
02:51-!-streuner [] has joined #debian
02:52<heffay>what is m -a?

02:54<jm_>I said m-a, not m -a -- so "man m-a"
02:54<jm_>the wiki page lists the steps to perform to install nvidia driver
02:54<heffay>no entry
02:55-!-esop [~wade@] has joined #debian
02:55<jm_>then you don't have it installed yet, wiki will tell you what to install
02:55<heffay>i have the driver installed but i did an override on the gcc version
02:55<heffay>i want to build it right if i can
02:56<heffay>i didnt get it from debian repos
02:56<heffay>i got the driver from the nvidia site
02:56<jm_>that's wrong way to do it

02:58<heffay>the installed was fine
02:58-!-Wilduck [] has joined #debian
02:59<jm_>sure but upgrade will overwrite it
02:59<heffay>for the moment im trying to isolate the gcc version as a variable
03:00<Wilduck>has anyone here successfully run multiple x sessions?
03:00<Wilduck>using different window managers?
03:00<heffay>upgrade? the driver on the nvidia site is the most recent one
03:00<jm_>Wilduck: yes
03:00<jm_>no, the debian upgrade will overwrite too
03:00<Wilduck>I'm trying to get stumpwm running in vt8
03:01<Wilduck>to play around with
03:01<Wilduck>I added "exec stumpwm-session"
03:01<Wilduck>to .xsession
03:01<Wilduck>and switched to vt1
03:01<heffay>im not trying to use the debian one. im trying to figure out why when i change the envrionment variable to from gcc-4.3 to 4.1 it doesnt take
03:01<Wilduck>ran startx -- :1
03:01<Wilduck>and it didn't work
03:02<Wilduck>any tips?

03:09<jm_>Wilduck: so you ran starts from say tty2 and that didn't switch you to a VT where X server was started?
03:09<Wilduck>the screen went black for a second
03:09<Wilduck>and then popped me back to tty2
03:09<jm_>then it didn't start correctly, check what it says on the screen or look in the logfile
03:10<jm_>Wilduck: and what's full contents of .xsession file?
03:10<jm_>no, /var/log/Xorg.*.log - where * is different for different displays
03:10<jm_>probably /var/log/Xorg.1.log for your 2nd instance
03:11<Wilduck>all that .xsession contains is the line "exec stumpwm-session"
03:11<jm_>ok that's fine as long as stumpwm-session can be run, to debug it replace it with something dumb like xclock or xterm
03:11-!-pusling [pusling@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
03:11<jm_>if that works the issue is with stumpwm-session
03:12<Wilduck>ok I'll try that
03:12<jm_>(ctrl-alt-backspace to quit the server)
03:13<Wilduck>btw there is a LOT in the Xorg.1.log
03:13<jm_>that's the point of it
03:13<Wilduck>I see
03:13<Wilduck>I guess I'm not familiar with it

03:37<jm_>hades__: you can use swaks to test smtp auth
03:37<Wilduck>well that was interesting
03:38<hades__>hm_: swaks ?
03:38-!-schasi [] has joined #debian
03:38<Wilduck>I got rebooted (hit ctrl-alt-del...)
03:39<Wilduck>then used kdm to start stumpwm
03:39<Wilduck>which worked
03:39<jm_>why ctrl-alt-del?
03:39<hades__>jm_: but there is no database with passwords --> i did something like saslpasswd2 is that correct ?
03:39<Wilduck>ctrl-alt-backspace did nothing when I switched to vt8
03:39-!-sundaymorning [~r00t@] has quit [Quit: leaving]
03:39<Wilduck>so I tried that =P
03:39<jm_>well that's only if X server starts
03:40<Wilduck>xclock started from startx just fine
03:40<Wilduck>so it must be a problem with stumpwm...
03:40-!-padski [~padski@] has joined #debian
03:41<Wilduck>I think I'm just going to use kdm to play around in stumpwm for now though
03:41<hades__>jm_: everything ok with swaks i mean he didint asked me for password propably because postfix is on local machine ?
03:41<jm_>hades__: it depends on your setup I suppose
03:41<Wilduck>thanks so much for your help jm_
03:42<jm_>Wilduck: np
03:43<wgsilkie>I have really unreliable dial-up connection. What would be the easiest way for me to upgrade to the next release of Debian?
03:44<wgsilkie>I used the use Ubuntu, and there was no easy way for that.
03:44-!-metalqga [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
03:44<jm_>wgsilkie: you can apt-zip
03:44<wgsilkie>Just one of the reasons for me to switch :)
03:44-!-lavogu [~lavogu@] has joined #debian
03:44<hades__>jm_: Ha, I got the problem... 535 5.7.0 Error: authentication failded: generic failture -> AUTH PLAIN
03:44-!-debalance [~debalance@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
03:44<jm_>that is to download stuff elsewhere, if you want to use dial-up then apt will work just fine since it can resume etc.
03:45<wgsilkie>jm_: Is that the easiest way? I seem to rember seeing an upgrade CD on
03:45<wgsilkie>or am I mistaken?
03:45-!-amphi [~amphi@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
03:46<jm_>wgsilkie: ohh sure, you can download CD-s/DVD-s and upgrade with that (the upgrade CD you are thinking of is probably security upgrades for stable)
03:46<jm_>one can upgrade using regular Debian CD-s
03:46<hades__>jm_: But i dont really know how to handle it...
03:46<jm_>hades__: try googling for that error

04:03<kingsley>Why would a computer on a small private network be added to /etc/hosts.deny about 2.5 minutes after it was removed, and when the computer is basically idling?
04:04<kingsley>By "idling", I mean that someone is logged into the computer, but no one is actively using it when it's denied.

07:03<dpkg>run "dselect update" to restore /var/lib/dpkg/available, or if your 'available' file is corrupt, remove it first then see above. Alternatively: "apt-cache dumpavail > /var/lib/dpkg/available && dpkg --update-avail /var/lib/dpkg/available"

08:23<eljefe>oops, i meant, "the era of free 3D..."
08:23<jm_>eljefe: until they release new cards and you'll have to wait > 6months to have it working ;)
08:24<eljefe>yep, stinks that. but at least it will eventually again work. plus i don't but that new of hardware and the people that i 'convert' usually don't have that new either

11:58<JordiGH>Experimental has been grossly abused, and I don't even get it.

11:59<Lemonzest>i thought things got uploaded to experimental first, then after a number of days filtered down to sid, then down to testing
11:59<fxiny>yes ? so i'll run sid again
11:59<fxiny>good news
11:59<bzed>JordiGH: unfortunately there're a lot of packages you can't upload to sid as they'd break fixing bugs in testing during the freeze
11:59<bzed>Lemonzest: ^

Users who download and install packages from experimental are expected to have been duly warned. In short, all bets are off for the experimental distribution. "

13:57<dpkg>the man pages for gcc are in the package gcc-doc which is in non-free. It's in non-free because it is released under the GFDL with invariant sections so the package does not meet the DFSG.

16:59<Tucuso>Stuckey, SUNs or ose?

17:00<Tucuso>Stuckey, that one sucks, uninstall it and install the SUNs one
17:00<sheldonh>Stuckey: fair enough. i gave up on that whole idea and just resurrected windows on another partition
17:01<Stuckey>Tucuso: can I have both versions isntalled at the same time or do I hvae to uninstall?
17:01<Tucuso>you should uninstall the VB ose and their modules

18:28<gbp>Hi, i'm running xorg on Debian Lenny with a Pentium4 PC with a 1,718mhz/256kb cache CPU and 1.2Gb ram. Would it be normal for X to feel sluggish all the time? the CPU utilization seems to go up to 100% constantly. I realize the CPU is old, but I thought X would run "ok" - but I probably can't tolerate it lagging constantly.
18:28<duraperidol>been all over
18:28<binarymutant>gbp, what driver are you using? might have something to with it
18:29<gbp>video driver in use is nv
18:29<binarymutant>gbp, also powertop might help you see what's driving that cpu up
18:29<gbp>binarymutant, thanks - just installed powertop
18:29<binarymutant>gbp, have you tried the nvidia driver yet?
18:30<k1lumin4t1>has anybody ran into GRUB 2 "error; you need to load the kernel first"?
18:31<gbp>binarymutant, I downloaded the Nvidia legacy driver package that supported my video card, and spent a bit of time trying to get it to install but didn't do too well. do you have any tips?

19:46<dpkg>To set the time in debian, use date --set.

22:50<kop>zakame : I'd rather not. I want the outbound mail from the machine to come from a domain that's not directly related to the domain that a reverse dns lookup would return for the box's IP address.
22:50<kop>zakame : And I want hostname etc to show the machine's name so I can tell what's what.

22:54<|1|||1|>twd: Sorry - I'm an idiot
22:54<kop>zakame : I'm guessing as to the problem. All I know is that mail should never be delivered to root because root's got an alias in /etc/aliases, but when I send "echo foo | mail -t test root" I wind up with an entry in the queue that's trying to send to (if /etc/mailname is

23:29<altaner>Just a names of packages - fow me to know, what manuals must I read
23:29-!-feron [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
23:29<kop>There are lots of choices: openldap, bind9, routing is built-in, squid, iptables, clamav (although clamav is to block MS windows viruses, there really arn't any linux viruses.)
23:30<brianwillis1984>kop: okay give me a min have to go to other room
23:30<k1lumin4t1>what are CGI applications worth for?
23:30<kop>k1lumin4t1 : Dynamic web content?
23:30<altaner>Mmm... openldap - is Acrive Dir, bind - DNS, squid - proxy, clamav - antivir?
23:30<k1lumin4t1>kop, yes. But, why a CGI?
23:31<kop>!tell altaner -about grounding
23:32<kop>altaner : Yes. There are other choices for all of them, but those are the popular ones. You'll also want to know about samba, most likely.
23:32<kop>altaner : And there are lots of add-ons to most of the programs mentioned that add graphical interfaces or other features. Oh, you'll also want dhcpd.
23:33<kop>k1lumin4t1 : See wikipedia.

23:34<brianwillis1984>kop: i did that command what was i looking for the different network
23:35<kop>AD is bind + dhcpd + openldap + a gui interface. Sorta. I don't really know AD. There's probably also something like kickstart or some sort of auto-remote-configure tool.

23:35<kop>brianwillis1984 : you were looking to see that eth0 (at least) was defined and that it was turned on automatcialy with an 'auto' clause.
23:35<altaner>kop: Ok, thank you. I'll think I could start with it.
23:35<brianwillis1984>i seen
23:35<brianwillis1984>something like
23:36<brianwillis1984>auto eth1
23:36<brianwillis1984>auto lo eth1 ? i think i saw...

23:39-!-tek [] has joined #debian
23:40<kop>brianwillis1984 : You probably want to "dpkg-reconfigure ifupdown". I think that's the package to reconfigure. I forget.
23:40<blinkz>does any one kno if tinyxp works with wifi
23:40-!-stroyan [~mike@] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
23:40<brianwillis1984>so try running that command
23:40<tek>what is tinyxp
23:40<kop>brianwillis1984 : That should ask you about your network configuration and re-set it up.
23:41<brianwillis1984>k let me try that

23:54<kop>brianwillis1984 : Poo. Must be the wrong package.
23:55<brianwillis1984>must be bud

23:55<brianwillis1984>but when i first installed it...i was haveing problems it wouldnt i just skipped it and said" i'll worry about it later"
23:56<kop>brianwillis1984 : Let's see what the docs at say about getting the prompts for reconfiguring network.
23:56<kop>brianwillis1984 : That'd be why then. No configuration.
23:56-!-Tucuso [~tucuso@] has quit [Quit: Saliendo]
23:56<kop>brianwillis1984 : I always use an editor (I'm an emacs guy), but you probably want prompts to keep things simple.
23:58<brianwillis1984>kop: so what do u purpose i do
23:59<kop>brianwillis1984 : Humm. Perhaps wait for someone more brainful. I'm tired. A quick glance looks like ifupdown is the right package to reconfigure. What version of debian are you running?
