03:16<Guest1023>what is that? In the examples for the program I need to run has the perms as 700
03:16<Guest1023>can I change it to 700?
03:16-!-ant_ [] has joined #debian
03:17<lethalduck>Hi. I had a kernel crash this morning. Noticed yesterday that iceweasel would crash every time I tried to brows to seek. After the kernel failure. There is no networking. Network manager does not list any interfaces. lspci -v | less lists the ethernet controler, but there is no kernel driver in use and the wireless Ralink device is not listed at all. What would be the best plan of attack to remedy this loss of networking?
03:18<jm_>Guest1023: no, there's no point in changing this
03:18<jm_>lethalduck: do you get an oops?
03:18-!-surjeet [~user@] has joined #debian
03:18-!-nike [] has joined #debian
03:19<lethalduck>jm_: oops?
03:19<jm_>lethalduck: yes
03:19<dpkg>i heard oops is "aw damn, i messesd up and deleted <entry>", or see ksymoops
03:19<jm_>doh not useful
03:19<jm_>check dmesg
03:20<Guest1023>I get this error when running zoneminder Can't get shared memory id '7a6d0001', 1: No such file or directory]

03:22<jm_>that means something else is not creating that shared memory segment
03:22<Guest1023>so my shmmax is set high enuogh:?
03:23<jm_>it's more likely a daemon that is supposed to do it is not running
03:23-!-midlis [] has joined #debian
03:24<Guest1023>thanks, I see in an error log that a process exited abnormally
03:24<kj4>hello all
03:24<jm_>yeah that would explain it
03:27<lethalduck>jm_: what exactly should I be looking for in dmesg?

03:31-!-snogglethorpe [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
03:31<lethalduck>jm_: [3.317561] ehci_hcd 000:00:1d.7: debug port 1
03:31<mib_6yises84>I have a debian minimal installation with xorg and firefox. I installed cups, and created a printer, that is working ( I printed a test site ). But if want to print with firefox, firefox crashes.
03:31-!-eduardo [] has joined #debian
03:33<jm_>lethalduck: that's not it
03:34<jm_>firefox or iceweasel? in Debian's iceweasel there's a bug where you can't select a printer to print on (haven't checked if it has been fixed in 3.0.6)
03:34<jm_>so somehow I doubt it's iceweasel
03:34<lethalduck>jm_ There's another 0 in there, it should be [3.317561] ehci_hcd 0000:00:1d.7: debug port 1
03:35-!-vbfght [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
03:35<kj4>is there a suppository I can add to install opera?
03:35<mib_6yises84>It is firefox 3.0. I changed lpr in the config to gtklp, because I found a thread in the internet. But this does not help.
03:35<jm_>lethalduck: no, check for any messages (in dmesg) from your nic driver when it stops working
03:35<jm_>kj4: go to and look there
03:36<jm_>mib_6yises84: you should ask in firefox support channel then, not in debian
03:37-!-nihil [michael@] has joined #debian
03:37<jm_>lethalduck: tools like mii-diag/ethtool can also diagnose some problems
03:37<kj4>jm_, thanks, i'm new to debian
03:37<mib_6yises84>jim_: Ok.

03:39<lethalduck>jm_: don't think I have mii-diag or ethtool installed
03:39<dpkg>*** NEWS FLASH! *** Your box does not come with every app, tool and utility known to debiankind installed already. If you find that the program you've been told to use isn't there, install it. Also ask me about <search>. If someone suggests an application to you, it's highly likely that it's available via apt-get or aptitude.
03:41<lethalduck>without a network connection?
03:42<jm_>you seem to be connected to an IRC server on the internet
03:42<lethalduck>not on that machine
03:42-!-mib_6yises84 [] has quit [Quit: ajax IRC Client]
03:42<jm_>so download it on the machine where you can, how hard can it be?
03:42<jm_>but really, look at existing data first

03:44-!-ao2 [~u@2001:1418:117::1] has joined #debian
03:45<lethalduck>jm_ I'll sift through dmesg again. to see if I can see the devices mentioned. I'm not sure where to get these programmes other than via apt, and if I get via apt on this machine, how do I go about moving them? I'm sorry if this seems like a dumb question
03:46-!-Guest1023 [] has quit [Quit: BitchX-1.1-final -- just do it.]
03:48<jm_>lethalduck: - search for it, you get download links, download it, then you can install with dpkg -i
03:48<jm_>lethalduck: what exactly is the problem? does it work at any time?
03:49<lethalduck>jm_ ok cool. No. No networking
03:49-!-surjeet [~user@] has joined #debian
03:51<jm_>lethalduck: so it never actually works? why did you say it crashes then?

03:54<jm_>lethalduck: right, my mistake - so you had networking before but not now?

03:54<lethalduck>jm_ yep
03:54-!-jazz [] has joined #debian
03:55-!-david is now known as Guest1030
03:55<jm_>lethalduck: ok, well I can only help with ifup, not with network manager since I never used that - are drivers loaded?
03:55-!-artefact [] has joined #debian
03:55<lethalduck>jm_ just thought the iceweasel crashing on seek may have been relevant to the kernel failure somehow
03:55<jm_>lethalduck: seek as in hard disk error mentioning seek?
03:56<lethalduck>jm_ no seek as in
03:56-!-freealan [] has joined #debian
03:56<jm_>lethalduck: I doubt it unless you have hardware problems

04:08<jm_>dies how?
04:08-!-debalance [] has quit [Quit: Elvis has left the building.]
04:08<matthias>It seems the problem is add-shell which is in the package passwd
04:08<matthias>debutils is trying to overwrite that fil
04:09-!-evolut__ [] has joined #debian
04:09<jm_>that makes no sense - why would it die in bsdutils then?
04:10<jm_>paste the error on pastebin
04:10<matthias>apt-get exits on dpkg-deb: subprocess paste killed by signal (broken pipe)
04:10<jm_>paste it all

04:13<lethalduck>jm_ can't see anything in dmesg that looks related to a network interface. On this machine I can see my wireless driver, but no sign of it on the faulty box. In saying that, I can't see any sign of a ethernet driver on either box.
04:13<jm_>lethalduck: run ls /sys/class/net
04:13<lethalduck>jm_ ls /sys/class/net prints eth0 lo. thats the wired interface and loopback
04:13<jm_>!tell matthias -about paste
04:14<jm_>lethalduck: right, so you're missing wireless? which card is it?
04:14-!-kapil [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
04:14<jm_>lethalduck: this explains how to identify it --
04:15<lethalduck>jm_ I should probably mention... the machine I'm communicating with you on is the same type of machine that's haveing the problems
04:15-!-shashi__ [~shashi@] has joined #debian

04:19<jm_>the syntax is: apt-get install linux-source-foo or apt-get source binary_package_name
04:20<Guest1032>is linux-source-2.6.18 the right version for my kernel?
04:20-!-erasolon [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
04:20<jm_>yes, but you could have upgraded to 2.6.24
04:20<lethalduck>jm_ I didn't realise you were asking me what the driver was, I already knew that... it's rt2860
04:21<Guest1032>jm wont I have to rebuild all my programs if i do that

04:21<asc>I'm trying to compile the nvidia drivers (from their site). It initially complained about me having gcc 4.3 while the kernel was compiled with gcc 4.1. I uninstalled 4.3 and installed 4.1; it now complains that cc is not in PATH. How can I compile this?
04:21<jm_>Guest1032: do what?
04:21<Guest1032>upgrade my kernel
04:21<jm_>lethalduck: not rt2860sta?

04:25-!-ApOgEE- [] has joined #debian
04:25<asc>If m-a stands for something, google doesn't know what it is.
04:25<dpkg>module-assistant is probably a tool helping to build additional (kernel) module packages and generate/install .deb packages with them, or aptitude install module-assistant && m-a prepare
04:26<jm_>there are docs on doing it the debian way
04:26<Guest1032>is there a video foe linuc pkg?
04:27-!-themill [] has joined #debian
04:27<Guest1032>can i run video for linux without recompling my kernel?

04:29<jm_>there's gspca-source for older releases, 2.6.26 includes gspca driver
04:29<pierre_thierry>anyone using Lustre with Debian?
04:30<pierre_thierry>I just compiled the kernel modules and tried the most basic test and it failed with a missing module
04:30<asc>Thanks. It looks like I might have to get the package from experimenal, but it seems like that should work anyway.
04:30-!-tjol_ [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
04:30<Guest1032>so jm_, in order to upgrade my kernel I just have to download the latest kernel source?
04:30<pierre_thierry>I don't have the mgs module in my lustre-modules-2.6.26-1-amd64
04:30<gsimmons>jm_: Uh, gspca is in from 2.6.27. You're thinking uvcvideo. :)
04:31<jm_>yeah - it's not much harder to grab the newest driver there is for nvidia from sid, and compile it for your own release and then build modules from that
04:31<jm_>gsimmons: you're absolutely right, it's in 2.6.27
04:31<Guest1032>whats the newst stable good kernel I should use?

05:35<Guest1038>i am trying to install the official binary nvidia driver on debian etch , an so i have installed build-essential and pkg-config , i do sudo sh ./NVIDIA_*.sh , it compiles ok, says done. then when it comes to depmod -ae it spits this error :/lib/modules/2.6.18-6-486/kernel/drivers/w1/masters/ds2490.ko: Input/output
05:35<Guest1038>then seg fault

05:35-!-Deuterium [~AlCapone@] has quit []
05:36<Guest1038>i tryed with various versions of the driver ..
05:36<Guest1038>same error
05:36<jm_>lethalduck: did you check what the driver reported in dmesg?
05:36<Guest1038>also, if i copy that path and do `ls /lib/modules/2.6.18-6-486/kernel/drivers/w1/masters/ds2490.ko" says the same thing input/output error
05:37<Guest1038>nothing really
05:37<Guest1038>just that input/output error
05:37<jm_>Guest1038: check you rdmesg output
05:37<Guest1038>i don't have that command
05:38<Guest1038>well that is all it has to say..
05:38<Guest1038>but why do i get the same error if I try to ls that path
05:40<Guest1038>well i tryed again to ls it, and it says ls /lib/modules/2.6.18-6-486/kernel/drivers/w1/masters/ds2490.ko

07:42<azeem>mib_6yises84: except the package is made for Debian
07:42<azeem>mib_6yises84: so if you install something manually, you're on your own

07:42<jm_>the difference is it's compiled against libraries shipped in Debian, unlike firefox

09:36<dr|z3d>billybigrigger: If you're talking about out of range during bootup, try startupmanager

09:39<koollman>Ikarus: yep. that's what I need too
09:39<Ikarus>koollman: nice, if you need any help
09:39<Ikarus>koollman: I did some initial research on it already
09:40<koollman>I don't think I can do that 'so easily'. maybe with some local storage it would be easier.
09:40<koollman>but, I'm interested if you already searched, yes :)
09:40<Ikarus>koollman: you can ask the PXE drivers to stay loaded
09:41<Ikarus>in which case communications is pretty straight forward, though might be raw ethernet instead of clean TCP/IP
09:41<koollman>so that I keep the network conf... right. would make sense

09:47-!-_awe_ [] has joined #debian
09:47<stew>billybigrigger: in general, the driver shouold be autodetected and you shouldn't need to specify in xorg.conf
09:48<koeppea>billybigrigger, right just nvidia
09:48<billybigrigger>nv or nvidia?
09:48<InkBottle>billybigrigger: nv is the free driver for nvidia
09:48<koeppea>nv is the xorg legacy nvidia driver
09:48<stew>billybigrigger: if the non-specific xorg.conf doesn't work for you, you can get a specific one generated by running 'X -configure"
09:48<miiep>nv is the standard modul of xorg, nvidia the module from nvidia
09:48<stew>billybigrigger: nv is the free driver in debian. nvidia is the non-free driver you'd have to install separately
09:49<stew>both are from nvidia, its just that one is free and can be included in xorg

09:51<InkBottle>billybigrigger: is it a crt or a flat screen?

09:51<billybigrigger>flat screen
09:52<billybigrigger>no i cant paste to pastebin

09:52<InkBottle>billybigrigger: for me I had to setup the xorg.conf manually: no automatic way did work.
09:52<shevek>Should it be possible to run debian on a 386? I know the kernel is compiled without 386 support, but if I use a custom kernel, should the rest work? Or is that also compiled for 486 and higher?
09:54<stew>shevek: no current version of debian, libc6 now only works with 486 or better

12:41<marcot>I want to change a package in the Debian CD and build a new media, I've copied the directories to the HD and made the changes. Now how can I build a iso with them, that I can burn in a CD or load in qemu?
12:41<fxiny>enouf: i have two hd a-b/6 swap files . and the configure got confused ,but it wrote hda6 in /etc*.conf so when reconfiguring it started with that one and asked for both hda6 and hdb6 swap partitions . when installing kde did not create a new initram only after when reconfiguring it manually
12:42<enouf>marcot: you need genisoimage magic
12:42-!-zerokreig [] has joined #debian
12:42<fxiny>enouf: tomorrow i'll double check it "blinding" hdb6 swap
12:43<fxiny>now i don't feel to replace my backups
12:43<enouf>fxiny: ok ;-) nice and simple eh? :-p
12:43<billybigrigger>does debian have official message forums?
12:44<billybigrigger>or is the wiki my best place to look for support?
12:44-!-dydanor [~dydanor@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
12:44<marcot>enouf: I'll take a look, thanks.
12:44<themill>fxiny: careful! I don't know if uswsusp checks to make sure the partition is actually a swap partition, but it certainly used to. I managed to accidentally point it at the device for / once and that didn't go so well for that installation.
12:44<fxiny>enouf: it can be dangerous cause a new intird is needed to suspend , maybe mine is an extreme situation ,the average laptop comes with one swap or none
12:46<onur>Hi. I am using Debian testing. Linux does not recognize my blank dvd+r discs. When i insert a blank dvd+r disc, gnome says: blank 'Blank DVD+RW Disc' and dmesg says: cdrom: This disc doesn't have any tracks I recognize! So, wodim not working. Is this a bug? Should i submit a bug report? If it is a bug, which package should i report?
12:46<krishna>billybigrigger: I think HERE is the best place to look for support
12:46<fxiny>themill: when reconfiguring it asked for the right swap partitions hda6 and hdb6 , hda was active and hdb was not
12:46<enouf>marcot: has some nice mkisofs (genisoimage) commands all layed out
12:47<billybigrigger>well its just nice to be able to look for howto's or whatever on a forum and do some reading before filling the irc with my problems :P but i think i found what i need on the wiki, thanks
12:47<fxiny>themill: and i found hda6 in uswsusp conf
12:47<marcot>enouf: ok, thanks.
12:47<enouf>marcot: s/
12:48<krishna>onur: the same happened to me and I reported a bug, but I was not sure whether it was a kernel or hal bug
12:48<enouf>fxiny: i think i'd rather play with the kexec option for suspend/hibernate;-)

16:28<dr|z3d>midori-gtk ?
16:28<themill>InkBottle: -dbg stands for debug. It's the debugging symbols for midori in case you wanted to run it in a debugging harness
16:29<dr|z3d>Not useful unless you know you need it. Safe to ignore.
16:29<InkBottle>yes but more precisely, Well I've got midori that chashes and I would like to know if "it" can help me get information about why

16:34<InkBottle>So if it crashes on something, what can I do to know why it does, in order to inform a bug report
16:35<dr|z3d>If you don't know what debugging symbols are, you're unlikely to be able to do much in the way of debugging. If you find a crash scenario in midori, then you might want to learn up.
16:36<dr|z3d>For now, the debugging extras can be ignored. As they mostly are for all installed apps, unless you specifically request tem.

16:45<Hyperbuddha>dr|z3d whats an xsession
16:46<dr|z3d>Hyperbuddha: An X session is what vnc displays.. it's your windowing environment.

17:37<themill>judd info hibernate
17:38<judd>themill: hibernate (utils): is extra; Version: 1.94-2; Size: 84.0k; Installed: 356k -- smartly puts your computer to sleep (suspend to RAM or disk)
17:38-!-xxiao [] has quit [Quit: ajax IRC Client]
17:38<themill>nmd202: ^^ there's also a debian package called hibernate that originally came from the tuxonice project
17:39<nmd202>screenn is the one who wants it. i'm not using it because it would negate some security features i have on my system.
17:39-!-habtool [] has joined #debian
17:39<nmd202>but people keep asking about it
17:40<themill>nmd202: I was just commenting on your assertion that linux doesn't use the name hibernate. The hibernate script was actually around before the s2disk script.
17:40<screenn>I used hibernad what I said, and that has shutted down my laptop, but before that tried to hibernate (I can saw it by power lamp)
17:40<themill>!suspend troubleshooting
17:40<dpkg>A guide for troubleshooting suspend-to-ram and suspend-to-disk problems is at . The tools it talks about are available in the debian package uswsusp.

17:43<nmd202>doesn't matter at this point for me though
17:44<screenn>so, tuxonice or hibernate package, looks not bad, as I said that is from the distr, I don't want to hear nothing about s2ram or s2disk cause that tools not from the distr
17:44<screenn>still try to run hibernate package yet
17:45<guilherme>what is wrong with this: how can i use the opencv lib??? thanks

19:46<Aster456>Damn thing does not show up in iceweasel plugins list
19:46<avu>iceweasel/firefox doesn't have a nice plugin management unfortunately, so just removing swfdec is the easiest solution
19:46<krishna>Aster456: I used to have swfdec-mozilla which worked fine for most flash sites, but in youtube and other video players I lost the controls like play/pause and volume
19:46<avu>but perhaps the docs comming with that flash package you just installed have additional hint

20:51<goodger>there was talk of backporting a tiny little bugfix to the etch version of aptitude, but afaik this was not done
20:51<DeepDayze>thought Etch->Lenny upgrade path is pretty good
20:51<DeepDayze>unless the tools are broken

21:15<Katleta>I dont think linux will allow you to brute force the login
21:15<asc>About as hard as plugging the keyboard into the keylogger and plugging the keylogger into the computer
21:16<Katleta>nmd202, it's as secure as any other OS or even more secure
21:16<Katleta>asc there are hardware keyloggers?
21:16<nmd202>all they really need is a livecd
21:16<nmd202>then crack your passwd file
21:16<Katleta>I guess why not, if there are hardware penies a.k.a vibrtors
21:16<blarson>With physical access, it depends on hardware how hard it is to either get it to boot something else or put the hard drive on an untrusted system.

22:19<goodtime>have fun removing vista
22:20<Efex>I will...i hate it.
22:20<goodtime>good luck
22:20<Efex>=/ hard to do?
22:20<simonrvn>Efex: drawbacks?
22:20*simonrvn can't think of any
22:20<Efex>I write music and want to make sure my music programs will be able to run on linux
22:21<goodtime>well my battery is low bbl
22:21-!-goodtime [] has quit [Quit: Konversation terminated!]
22:21<simonrvn>if you can't find an equivalent in linux, then you can always run wine
22:21<Efex>can wine run basically anything that runs on windows xp/vista?
22:21-!-cmn__ [] has joined #debian
22:21<simonrvn>i've heard of various music notation stuff, if that's what you mean
22:21<goodger>Efex: it depends on the individual programs
22:23-!-superjet_busy [] has joined #debian
22:23<Efex>Hmm...that's the only thing holding me back, really. I'm always worried I'll have to give up something when going from windows (and my MacBook) to linux
22:23<Efex>hence trying to make a bootable version on my usb
22:23<simonrvn>i'd do some reearch first then
22:24<Efex>goodger: from your earlier comments, I'd assume removing vista is a pain?
22:24<jrabbit>less of a pain then isntalling it
22:24<Efex>simonrvn: alright...i'll look into the programs I regularly use and see if they're all compatible...
22:24<jrabbit>installing vista = nuked MBR
22:24<goodger>Efex: it can be a pain

22:25<Efex>bah...and I still don't even know if I could find all the drivers in debian for my computer
22:25<Efex>i may just fk it and use vmware
22:26<Efex>until i learn enough to do a permanent switch
22:26<simonrvn>Efex: that i wouldn't worry about
22:27-!-Sparc [] has joined #debian
22:27<Efex>what do you mean?
22:27<simonrvn>the drivers
22:28<Sparc>anyone alive?
22:28<Efex>Sparc: I am
22:28<simonrvn>Sparc: nope
22:28<Efex>simonrvn: Do you think debian would still work despite the hardware in my computer? (assuming I grab the right version for my processor?)
22:28<Sparc>just finished loading xubuntu on my computer
22:29-!-cmn_ [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
22:29<simonrvn>for that macbook, you just need i386 or amd64, and install elilo for the efi support
22:29<Sparc>i'm not all that impressed.
22:29<simonrvn>Sparc: yeh, and it's the wrong channel for support ;)
22:29<Sparc>I don't need any
22:30<Sparc>mental support but thats it
22:30<Efex>I support you if you decide to not use it...
22:30-!-kabotage [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
22:30<Efex>what's the difference between xubuntu and ubuntu?
22:31<Efex>simonrvn: elilo? is that an emulator of some sort?
22:31<Sparc>x is smaller and runs on lowere speed machines
22:31<simonrvn>ubuntu uses gnome, xubuntu uses xfce
22:31<stew>Efex: ask #ubuntu or #xubuntu on

22:39<goodtime>Efex: you should try partitioning your hd and leave windows on the c drive aand set up debion on the other and runn wine in linux so you can do you music thing till you figure out linux more so
22:39-!-simonrvn_ [simon@] has joined #debian
22:39<Efex>hmm...partitioning wouldn't take to much effort.
22:40<Efex>I heard somewhere that partitioning an HDD makes it run a bit slower, that truE?
22:40<goodtime>wine is a windows emulator

22:40<goodger>goodtime: no, it is a windows implementation
22:40<goodtime>same thing i guess
22:41<Efex>alright. after i partition, I could basically just install as normal via the dvds?

22:41-!-jcoppala [] has joined #debian
22:41<goodtime>true it isnt
22:42<goodtime>i meen after you install grub you can at least boot either windows or debion
22:43<goodtime>wine just runs windows apps i guess
22:43<goodtime>not windows itself
