00:00<kop>lifedog : /dev/dsp would be a link to the actual device. Poke around /dev/bus/ or somewhere. There's also udev tools that let you search /sys/.
00:00-!-Guest895 [~djc@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:01<hmn>and it does not have execute permission set
00:01<pbdl>hmn: i take your word for it. i'm just getting pissed with his long writing. and i'm drunk, what can i say.. sorry :)
00:01<lifedog>you mean i make file /dev/dsp and link to my actual device,right?
00:01<kop>lifedog : It's probably in /dev/audio/ Somewhere.
00:02<hmn>pbdl, heh.. what do you think of what i'm describing?
00:02<kop>lifedog : No. You tell udev to make /dev/dsp a symlink to the actual device file, which gets put in some standard place.
00:02<lifedog>ok,i will try it,thanks
00:02<pbdl>hmn: i gots to read it foirst
00:03<hmn>pbdl, i can pastebin the file for you to take a look at it
00:03<kop>lifedog : You might want to tell the channel why you need /dev/dsp. There's probably a better approach.
00:03<gsimmons>kop: There is.
00:03<gsimmons>dpkg: devdsp
00:03<gsimmons>dpkg: literal devdsp
00:03<dpkg>"devdsp" is "if you are using <ALSA> and you get an error about /dev/dsp missing, you need to provide the OSS compatibility layer. Run "modprobe snd-pcm-oss" and add snd-pcm-oss to /etc/modules"
00:04<hmn>(use shell commands like cat to actually view it before you double-click on it, of course)
00:05<hmn>er, actually i forgot that the pastebin will show you what it looks like. lol
00:05-!-padma [~padma@] has joined #debian
00:05<hmn>pbdl, so should i pastebin it?
00:06<lifedog>my audio card is inter HD, the module is snd-hda-intel, my laptop is thinkpad x60, the model is AD1981, the card works well,but when running cat /dev/urandom>/dev/dsp, it tell me there is no device "/dev/dsp"
00:06-!-Woet [] has quit []
00:07<kop>lifedog : So wny not find the actual device special file and cat /dev/urandom to that?
00:08<lifedog>sorry, i m newer , and i really dont kown very much for linux
00:08<lifedog>i try the way that you tell me

00:18<hmn>support-wise, on this channel?
00:18<hmn>5.0 is lenny
00:19<lifedog>aha, i see ,i upgrade my system last week
00:19<hmn>me too, actually. i was just downloading some packages for it when it was being released, noticed it was going slow..
00:20<lifedog>i can try ubuntu, it is update quickly,haha
00:21<lifedog>u can try ubuntu, it is update quickly,haha

00:24<hmn>unfortunately, my local telco has a monopoly on DSL... but i don't think it was slow because of anything on my end.
00:26<lifedog>it is ADSL in my local, the speed is 120kb/s
00:26<hmn>my connection is usually 100kB/sec at least, it was running at 10kB/sec or slower on that day
00:27<lifedog>poor hmn
00:27<hmn>lifedog, officially or measured? i was talking about the numbers aptitude reported
00:28<lifedog>measured,some website can test the speed for downloading & uploading
00:29<hmn>lifedog, right, that makes sense then

00:39<lifedog>yes,thats right,have a good night
00:39<hmn>thanks, but i'm not leaving yet.
00:40<hmn>i was just covering my a** in case i was remembering wrong :)
00:40<lifedog>haha,how clever y r
00:41<hmn>cuz i know that's about as simple of a world geography question as possible, and i don't want to make us americans look stupider than we already do
00:42<hmn>but this is off-topic.. sorry
00:42<MrNfector>So here's an interesting question that I have to admit that I haven't googled much, but I've been thinking about. Why doesn't lenny come with locales installed? Or was that possibly just my provider that caused that issue? I haven't done a straight minimal install myself, but since so many different things depend on it, anyone else noticed this?
00:43-!-Guest801 [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:44<hmn>MrNfector, when you install lenny there is a language selection on the very first screen, which sets the locale (i believe)
00:44<MrNfector>This could be an issue with a particular image, but I've heard of it a couple times now, so I'm wondering.
00:44<lifedog>it doesn't matter, i have no knowledge of america, i also dont know the eastern or western,but it is sytle of my life,so dont care
00:45<MrNfector>hmn, ok, it may be a build issue then. I haven't done a install yet, just used a build that was provided to me on a VPS I have for dev stuff.
00:46<hmn>MrNfector, yeah, sounds like someone made the choice for you. (there are also region selections after the language, which is also part of locale)
00:47<lifedog>i m really hungry,i have to leave,see u later or next week;-)
00:47<hmn>bye lifedog, have a nice afternoon
00:47<MrNfector>I'll likely reinstall my workstation soon with it, I'm happy to see lenny become the stable version of debian. Etch was getting to be a bit too far out of date on the core packages for me (desktop, not server).

00:49<hmn>MrNfector, i was too... though i wish i'd known lenny was about to be released when i upgraded. i could have used the new installer (i upgraded from a fresh etch install)

00:52-!-hinge_cut [] has joined #debian
00:53<roccity_>hey guys how is debian 5 compared to etch? I tried etch and liked it just wondering if I should install etch again or lenny
00:54<hmn>roccity_, i like it for the most part.. new version of emacs and aptitude is nice
00:54-!-lucas_ [~lucas@] has joined #debian
00:55<roccity_>hmn, is there any real big difference other than upgraded packages?
00:55-!-muammar [~muammar@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:55<roccity_>hmn, I read that they are using the 2.6.26 kernel
00:55<Steven_M>when I installed Lenny, the installer couldn't download the security updates because my internet was down. What's the best way to install the security updates post install?
00:56<hmn>roccity_, well, for me, emacs now does syntax highlighting in python and prolog, fresh out of aptitude
00:56<hmn>and works with swiprolog
00:56<roccity_>hmn, aye??
00:56<hmn>which is a new package in lenny
00:56<roccity_>hmn, whats swiprolog if you don't mind me asking?
00:57<hmn>roccity_, it's an interpreter for the logic programming language Prolog
00:57<roccity_>hmn, sounds interesting
00:58<blarson>Steven_M: aptitude update && aptitude upgrade
00:58<Steven_M>roccity_: I like Lenny so far
00:58<roccity_>hmn, can I install lenny from one cd like in etch?
00:58<hmn>yes, of course
00:58<blarson>roccity_: Sure. Or just upgrade your etch system.
00:58<hmn>oh wait, _one_ cd.. i'm not sure, but i think so
00:59<hmn>yes for sure if you're talking about net install
00:59<roccity_>hmn, how is the installer upgrading should I use the cd or dist-upgrade
00:59-!-hever [] has joined #debian
01:00<hmn>roccity_, it depends. do you have any files on etch you want to keep? the cd is easier if you don't care about hosing your current system
01:00<blarson>dpkg: tell roccity_ about etch->lenny
01:00-!-Debian_User [~Debian_Us@] has quit [Quit:]
01:00<Steven_M>blarson: thought so, thanks :)
01:00<roccity_>hmn, I have most on dvd so I know fresh is best
01:00-!-Deuterium [~AlCapone@] has joined #debian
01:01<roccity_>blarson, thanks for that didn't know you could do all that with dpkg
01:02<hmn>roccity_, otoh, going from etch to lenny the "hard way" is valuable for the experience... and can always be done the other way later if something breaks and you can't fix it
01:02<roccity_>hmn, thats the thing I always break something :)
01:02<roccity_>cool be back after I do this
01:02<MrNfector>^ my problem too.
01:02<roccity_>thanks guys
01:03-!-roccity_ [] has left #debian [Leaving]
01:04*blarson never had a problem upgrading a debian system, other than very rarly in sid. And we all know sid is unstable.
01:05<hmn>i've had a few.... going from sarge->etch (a day or so after getting my first debian install cd) broke X because they changed to
01:05<MrNfector>Of course, Sid uses fireworks to blow up toys, he has to be unstable.

01:06<MrNfector>I have had problems a couple times from etch to Lenny, before Lenny was stable.
01:06<hmn>i only had minor problems going etch->lenny
01:07<hmn>but then it was also a fresh etch install :)
01:07<hmn>god, i repeat myself too much
01:07<MrNfector>It was mostly minor, though there were a few times when I got a bit irritated and decided I could do a straight install quicker.

01:13<hell-0>brasero actually works
01:13<hell-0>i had fedora 9
01:13<hell-0>vlc media player is stable
01:14<Culito>i have ubuntu 8.10
01:14<hell-0>i installed vmware 2.0 fine
01:14<Culito>and benjamin too
01:14<hell-0>this is heaps stable
01:15<Culito>Benjamin, Where r u from?
01:15<hell-0>i like that most of the apps you need are on the install disc too
01:15<hmn>popcon at work, i guess
01:16<hmn>i know that the ones i need wouldn't all be on the first disc
01:17<hell-0>what you use?
01:17<MrNfector>I've got Ubuntu on my workstation, and at home, been thinking about putting it on the tech's workstations at work, but since I prefer Debian for stability I think I'll be installing Lenny to see how it does as a workstation.
01:17<hell-0>i'm leeching urban terror at the moment, hopefully that installs fine
01:17-!-greeq [jake@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
01:18<hmn>some rather eccentric programs :) swi-prolog for one
01:18<hell-0>and what does that doo
01:18<hmn>it's an interpreter
01:18<hell-0>sounds dramatic
01:18<hmn>yes, for prolog
01:19<hmn>it's not all that dramatic, unless logic programming is dramatic to you
01:19<hell-0>logic? who thinks logically anymore
01:19<hmn>hardly anyone. like i said, it's eccentric. :)
01:20-!-rgb30 [] has joined #debian
01:20<MrNfector>Anyone have any thoughts or opinions on deploying Lenny as a workstation for technicians to use? 15-20 workstation deployment, to replace Windows Server 2003 (which I thought was a bad idea in the first place). Most of our techs prefer linux in the first place.

01:23<hell-0>do you work for NASA?
01:24<MrNfector>server 2003 in an AD environment, yes. Volume licensing, so it wasn't so bad. We do a lot with linux though, and we used Fedora 7 before as a workstation, but the powers that be wanted to try to move to Windows.
01:24<MrNfector>erm, no.
01:24<hell-0>AD enviroment?
01:25<hell-0>active directory?
01:25<MrNfector>Active Directory, yes
01:25<hell-0>you had each workstation set up as a domain controller
01:25-!-vhyedfot [~nrlzxwim@] has joined #debian
01:26<MrNfector>If you absolutely have to run Windows on a server, then it's easier to manage (from what little I know of Windows) using AD.
01:26<MrNfector>No, each workstation was simply a workstation. There are servers to be domain controllers, etc.
01:28<MrNfector>Server 2003 can be used as a workstation just as well as XP can, honestly. I'd just like to move back to the linux workstations. Since we work mostly on linux servers, might was well have our workstations on the same OS.
01:28<hell-0>what do you guys do their
01:29<hell-0>im a first year computer systems student
01:29<MrNfector>A terminal server session on one monitor does the same as a Windows box most of the time.
01:29<hell-0>keen to learn
01:29<MrNfector>Nice to meet you then, always nice to meet someone who wants to learn about computers.
01:31<hell-0>so you had 3 clients log on to each server using terminal services
01:31<MrNfector>I'm a sysadmin for a dedicated server company. We provide servers on a monthly contract, basically.

02:02<rgb30>if wget is downloading a series of files and it is interrupted then restarted, will it overwrite the files that are already present or will it skip them?

02:04-!-ajay [~ajay@] has joined #debian
02:04<hmn>dondelelcaro, i think the first advice for someone who doesn't know seq should be man seq, not telling them to run it and see.. that's how newbies can get hosed
02:04<dondelelcaro>hmn: I have no clue how you can get hosed by running seqq
02:05<hmn>dondelelcaro, not with seq specifically, but with any shell command i think one should understand what it does _before_ trying to execute it

02:05<Asteroid345>Is theer something wrong with this cron ercor? "1,15,30,45 * * * * /home/asteroid/Desktop/runit"
02:05-!-alephnull [~alok@] has joined #debian
02:05<ajay>hi to all,new debian-cd package is very nice,easy to create install Cd ,but in tasks/lenny folder there is no debian-installer+kernel file is not available
02:05<dondelelcaro>Asteroid345: I've no clue what /home/asteroid/Desktop/runit is, but that's a reasonable crontab entry
02:05<Asteroid345>where runit is an executable and it has "gmessage 'hello'" in it
02:06<dondelelcaro>Asteroid345: though you'd probably want */15 * * * * insteadd
02:06<ajay>where it is vailable in debian-cd folder?
02:06<dondelelcaro>Asteroid345: and that won't work, because you'd actually need something like DISPLAY=:0.0 gmmessage 'hello' in runit
02:07<dondelelcaro>hmn: that's the same with any command, but it's perfectly legitimate to have someone try and run a command
02:07<dondelelcaro>hmn: whether they trust me or not is up to them
02:07<Asteroid345>dondelelcaro, wh wnt it work and why do I need that? (if there is a short answer, dont want to bug you)
02:07<dondelelcaro>Asteroid345: because in order to connect to an X server, you have to know what display to use.
02:07<dondelelcaro>Asteroid345: in a shell started from an X session you have DISPLAY and XAUTHORITY env variables set. That's not the case in cron
02:07<hmn>dondelelcaro, i'm not questioning your intentions either, i just think it's bad to get people in the habit of running commands they don't understand
02:07<Asteroid345>dondelelcaro, interesting
02:08<ajay>is there any document available about new debian-cd it works?
02:08<dondelelcaro>hmn: sure, but I don't have time to bother with that. Feel free to educate metalqga
02:08<MrNfector>dondelelcaro: would need a user specification as well if the user logged into X isn't root, otherwise the DISPLAY= wouldn't go to the correct X session.
02:09<dondelelcaro>ajay: the debian-cd package is documented within it
02:09<dondelelcaro>MrNfector: uh.. no, it wouldn't
02:09*dondelelcaro is assuming of course that you're running cron as the user that the X session is running

02:09*MrNfector blinks
02:09<dondelelcaro>if not, well, that's something entirely different
02:09<Asteroid345>dondelelcaro, would */15 * * * * mean every 4 seconds?
02:09<MrNfector>maybe I'm just too used to running cron as root, you could be entirely right.
02:10<metalqga>hmn you saw me asking how the line works, i didnt execute it right away
02:10<dondelelcaro>MrNfector: every user has crontabs, so...
02:10<dondelelcaro>Asteroid345: no, it means every 15 minutes. man 5 crontab
02:10<hmn>metalqga, yes, true.. that's good :)
02:11<dondelelcaro>anyway, best of luck all
02:11<MrNfector>dondelelcaro: you're right, I forget about that, since I mostly work with servers where I set cron jobs as root anyway, my mistake.

02:14<oipunx>hi, just a quick question. How do you rotate a vid 180 deg in mplayer? I know that it will rotate with -vf rotate=1 but that's only 90deg

02:17<dondelelcaro>oipunx: uh... so you want -mirror or -flip?
02:17<gsimmons>oipunx: Try '-vf flip,mirror'.
02:18<tcsetattr>a 180 degree rotation is equivalent to a pair of reflections across orthogonal axes. so -vf flip,mirror should do it. (flip is vertical, mirror is horizontal)
02:18<oipunx>oh nice that worked

02:26<Asteroid345>which is most common/popular?
02:27<dpkg>hmm... popcon is the Debian Popularity contest. See results at or install popularity-contest to participate. do the dpkg-reconfigure popularity-contest right after you answered all debconf stuff, or the basis for what packages appear on the first few cds/dvds etc (by rank)

03:44<phishbwlr>bah... should i just apt-get install gnome
03:44<enouf>!install gnome
03:44<dpkg>To install GNOME on sarge or later, install the 'gnome' package to install everything, the 'gnome-desktop-environment' package for slightly less stuff, or the 'gnome-core' package for even less. You will need X installed as well, ask me about <set up x>.

10:30<themill>joss: since you seem not to know what a dependency is, I wouldn't go around calling people idiots.
10:30<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. You can always try to downgrade a package using dpkg -i <olderversion.deb>. Also see <partial downgrade>, or <sdn>

11:38<tcsetattr>AnMaster, what is that "tzdata-etch" package you've got? can you get rid of it and see if that helps the libc6 situation?
11:38<themill>AnMaster: that's packages that are not being upgraded yet. You'll upgrade them in a subsequent step
11:38<AnMaster>tcsetattr, hm ok, also no idea what that package is
11:39<AnMaster>is it safe to get rid of?
11:39<tcsetattr>well it's only updated timezome data. you can do without that for a few minutes :))
11:39<tcsetattr>(and probably forever, unless you live in a place that has changed its timezone rules recently)
11:39<themill>no... tzdata-etch is a virtual package.
11:39<AnMaster>um ok
11:39<AnMaster>so what do I do then?
11:40<tcsetattr>somehow it conflicts with new libc6 though.
11:40<themill>And libc6 in etch depends on it.
11:40<AnMaster>aptitude remove tzdata-etch && aptitude install aptitude ?
11:40<mrrangerman43>hey thanks I had to go through sanaptic to get rid of it, but all is well... thanks again
11:40<themill>tcsetattr: but aptitude resolves that.
11:40<AnMaster>or will that break stuff too
11:40<themill>AnMaster: no, just "aptitude install aptitude" is fine. Aptitude is clever enough to cope with upgrading the tzdata package too which solves the problem
11:40<tcsetattr>how about just "aptitude install libc6" and see what that does. It's a smaller goal than "aptitude install aptitude" so it might be easier to get done.
11:40<AnMaster>oh also the system is a vps, I can't upgrade kernel. it is "2.6.18-92.1.13.el5.028stab059.3ent"
11:40<themill>tcsetattr: no. stop.

11:43<themill>AnMaster: I'm pretty sure it was openvz that people have been having troubles with, but I've not been following carefully enough.
11:43<tcsetattr>"aptitude install libc6" will do a subset of what "aptitude install aptitude" will do. It can't be less safe, and might be more so.
11:43<AnMaster>themill, so what do I do then? Stay on etch? I can't afford messing this vps up really...

12:37<oxmoz>hello all, just a question, what incremental backup manager would you advice? I heard about rdiff-backup and rsnapshot

12:38<sjall>themill: im just wondering how some things work in debian. thought id find out about this without running it.
12:38<tcsetattr>sjall, the reason being that X clients don't necessarily have to be on the same machine as the X server so there's not a hard dependency that forces a server installation
12:38<sjall>tcsetattr: yes i am aware of that

13:14<bsssh>hey! I have a small question on bash..
13:14-!-alphad [~alphad@] has joined #debian
13:16<bsssh>I want to run script2 within script1. Script2 lies in another directory. I call script2 as $var="pathto/script2" in script1. It works. But script2 own working directory stays as from script1!... How can I execute script2, so its pwd is not from where it was started, but where it lies?..
13:17<bsssh>script1 is /data/prj. script2 is /data/prj/subprj/.
13:17<tcsetattr>"working directory" means "working directory", not "directory where the program is located"
13:17<bsssh>if I perform pwd within script2, i get path of script1....
13:17<bzed>that's a feature, not a bug
13:18<tcsetattr>no you don't. you get the directory that you were in when you started script1, unless script1 did a cd.
13:18<bsssh>how can I switch this feature?

13:18<tcsetattr>stop trying to use the cwd to find program file. that's not what it's for.
13:18<bsssh>script2 is supposed to cp several where it lies.
13:18<themill>bsssh: cd /data/prj/subprj ; ./script2
13:19<tcsetattr>programs should generally not operate on data relative to their own location. that's confusing to the user.
13:19<bsssh>thewill hmm. nice option. thx!
13:19-!-goodger [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
13:19<bzed>bsssh: that's ugly. though.
13:19<bzed>bsssh: use somthing like targetdir=/foo/bar; cp suff $targetdir
13:20<themill>bzed: presumably script2 does a little more than that though
13:20<bzed>or similar things
13:21<bsssh>themill: no. only copy several , local files to /usr/bin.
13:21<bzed>themill: you should never assume that the working directory is the directory where something is located
13:21<tcsetattr>if you're in /etc and you type "cat resolv.conf", do you want cat to show you the resolv.conf in your current working directory (/etc) or do you expect it to find the directory where the "cat" program is and then look for a resolv.conf there?
13:21<bzed>bsssh: now that sounds really broken.
13:21<themill>bsssh: oh... in that case, you shouldn't be using a second script for it at all
13:21-!-Matzee [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
13:21<bzed>bsssh: probably you want to explain what you really want to do
13:21<themill>bzed: . can be a sensible default, however.
13:22<bzed>themill: sorry, but that's completely broken to use it in scripts imho.
13:22<bzed>except for dirty hacks
13:22-!-oxymor00n [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
13:22<bsssh>themill, its decentered installer. Script1 finds if script2..3..4 are present and calls them in row. 2...3..4 install or uninstall local files to system.
13:22<tcsetattr>if you really really really think you know what you're doing, you can probably find the script's full path in $0, assuming it was invoked through the #! mechanism
13:23<themill>bzed: no, . is frequently used as the default in POSIX. e.g. ln (1).
13:23<themill>tcsetattr: now that really is ugly
13:23<bzed>themill: ln is not some random script
13:23<bzed>themill: and tcsetattr is right, if you *need* to figure out where a script is, you can try it via $0. there's no other way
13:23<tcsetattr>I'm advocating against it. but I don't withhold information :)
13:23<themill>bzed: exactly. . is a sensible default location.
13:24-!-Netsplit <-> quits: FloodServ
13:24<tcsetattr>there's /proc/self/exe but in a script that will only tell you where the interpreter (shell) is.
13:24<themill>bzed: and I can give you many situations where $0 is useless. Yes, it's the only way, but it also doesn't work.
13:24<bzed>themill: . doesn't work if you want to use the directory where the script is located
13:24<bzed>bsssh: first I think you don't want to use /usr/bin for whatever you're doing there
13:25<bsssh>guys, I have /data/prj/script1. It seaches for ./subprj1/installer ./subprj2/installer etc. And executes them. ./subprjX/installer should copy or remove locally kept(this dir) files to system.
13:25<bzed>bsssh: use /usr/local for it.
13:25<themill>bzed: why are we arguing about this anyway? . is a sensible place for a script to do things, not for it to locate itself. Regarding $0, see
13:25<bsssh>bzed: thanks for idea. :)
13:25<bzed>bsssh: and then i think you want to use something like stow probab;y
13:26<bzed>themill: i know.
13:26<bsssh>bzed thats too BIG for several bash scripts...

13:32-!-pbn [] has joined #debian
13:32<bzed>bsssh: if you want to tell a script a directory to work on, pass it as argument.
13:32<tcsetattr>when you mean "directory containing the currently running program", say it that way. don't confuse it with working directory. we don't have a shorter term for "directory containing the currently running program" because there's no good reason to use it

13:33<themill>Is this (a) a script for personal use only and (b) a script that is to be run straight out of the tarball or project space so you have control over where it is? If so, then you can start making some assumptions.
13:34<bzed>bsssh: for example don't put rm -rf $1/ into it

13:44<tcsetattr>let's follow step by step what happens
13:44<bsssh>lets do it)
13:44<tcsetattr>suppose you log in as "bsssh". the login process inherits some working directory from its parent, which is not your home directory. it wants to put you in your home directory before starting your shell.
13:45<tcsetattr>so it looks you up in /etc/passwd, finds "/home/bsssh" in there, and does a chdir("/home/bsssh"), and the runs your shell. you now have a bash process running, and the wd of that process is /home/bsssh
13:45<tcsetattr>now you want to work on your crazy installer project, so you do "cd src/crazyinst". that changes the wd of your bash process to "/home/bsssh/src/crazyinst"
13:45<rgb30>anyone know of a way to use wget so that it downloads it creates download directories in the form of /chapter1/section1, /chapter1/section2, /chapter2/section1, /chapter2/section2 based on the structure of the urls being used?

13:46<tcsetattr>now you run "./script1" - it inherits the bash process's current working directory, which is "/home/bsssh/src/crazyinst". It got that wd NOT because that is where the script is, but because That Is Where Your Bash Was When You Ran It.
13:46<rgb30>could someone msg me with the content of what i just typed?
13:47<tcsetattr>if you were in /home/bsssh and ran "./src/crazyinst/script1", it would start up with the inherited working directory /home/bsssh, not the directory where it's located.
13:48<tcsetattr>hope we got all that cleared up now
13:49<tcsetattr>rgb30, you want to split a pdf up into a separate pdf for each chapter/section? sounds like not a job for wget but for some pdf manipulator

14:46<tcsetattr>the installer should make a better effort on the initial sources.list. CD1+security+volatile isn't great.

14:46<valdyn>nomaan: volatile is an addition, its not an instead
14:47<tcsetattr>but installers are hard to do right. don't get too mad.
14:47<nomaan>and the partition manager also sucks its too difficult

15:33<valdyn>Stargazer84: more than 20
15:33<vinicius>what is a good way of listing the hardware composition of a computer?
15:33<valdyn>Stargazer84: not a huge amount because ssh does need some cpu , but more than 20
15:33<vinicius>i know lspci, but doesnt show me ram memory size, processor speed, etc

15:34<valdyn>Stargazer84: (naturally depending on your cpu on the server and network bandwidth )
15:34<Stargazer84>the best thing for me would be over http

15:34<valdyn>Stargazer84: ssh can use a null cipher if you really want the minimum cpu usage
15:35<vinicius>Nemoder, thanks!
15:35<tcsetattr>if 20 incoming ssh connections happen all at the same time, you might run into the MaxStartups limit.

15:35<Stargazer84>anyway i will try ssh and will judge the results
15:35<Stargazer84>thanx valdyn
15:35<Nemoder>Stargazer84: if this is just a daily update why not stagger them a little?
15:35<valdyn>Stargazer84: nfs is made for much higher workloads
15:36<Stargazer84>it is supposed to be dayly
15:36<Nemoder>i mean, like each machine 1min apart
15:36<valdyn>Stargazer84: so let the server *push* out changes 1 by 1
15:36<Nemoder>or that
15:36<valdyn>Stargazer84: that way you dont need many resources at all
15:36<Stargazer84>but the client will be checking on server every 3 minutes for changes
15:37<valdyn>Stargazer84: thats not what i would call daily, forget ssh then
15:37<Stargazer84>let me explain the situation better
15:37<tcsetattr>once a day, 480 times a day, what's the difference?
15:37-!-Idisjunction [] has joined #debian
15:37<valdyn>Stargazer84: and it seems to make more sense to let only one computer check for changes ( the server ) and let it push them out
15:37<Stargazer84>lets say that i have 30 drivers that thay have a computer with some files in it
15:38<Stargazer84>those files change in 20% daily
15:38<valdyn>Stargazer84: drivers?
15:38<Stargazer84>yes cars with wifi
15:38<valdyn>Stargazer84: so now you are talking about internet traffic?
15:38<tcsetattr>street traffic :)
15:38<Stargazer84>not internet
15:38<valdyn>Stargazer84: what kind of data amount and bandwidth?
15:38<Stargazer84>the main station (server)
15:39<Nemoder>generally daily is defined as 'only once per day'
15:39<Stargazer84>is at the central office of the company
15:39<Stargazer84>once per day ffiles change
15:39<Nemoder>..then why check every few mins?
15:40<Stargazer84>the computer in the car runs continiusly
15:40<valdyn>Stargazer84: how much data?
15:40<Stargazer84>max 10
15:40<Stargazer84>max 100mb
15:40<valdyn>Stargazer84: how many files?
15:40<Nemoder>ah, and all the clients are not always connected at the time of update?
15:41<valdyn>Stargazer84: so you might even want to use diffs
15:41<Stargazer84>the cars come and go
15:41-!-simonrvn [] has joined #debian
15:41<valdyn>Stargazer84: you can even use git
15:42<Stargazer84>so i need to check every 3 min if it can see server
15:42<Stargazer84>if yes then connect and rsync to the dir
15:42<tcsetattr>then they stop trying to connect for the next 24 hours?
15:42<valdyn>Stargazer84: you wont have all drivers there at once
15:42-!-fxiny [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
15:42<valdyn>Stargazer84: and you can make drivers stop polling once they got an update
15:43<valdyn>Stargazer84: so nothing wrong with rsync over ssh it seems
15:43<valdyn>Stargazer84: you can use a version control system like git to minimise traffic
15:44<Stargazer84>yes but imagine this
15:44<Stargazer84>at the time of the update there are 20 out of 30 in range
15:44<Stargazer84>then what?

16:30<Tarcas>Oh, "for opticals." Sorry I missed that

16:30<valdyn>bsssh: dont need udf for files over 2G
16:30<bsssh>valdyn explain..
16:30<valdyn>bsssh: other than that, i know nothing about bluray
16:30<Tarcas>I was looking at everything else and thinking... isn't that common in any new FS?
16:30<valdyn>bsssh: i cant, it just works in brasero
16:31<valdyn>bsssh: all i get is a warning that mac os x cant read it, but linux and windows can
16:31<bsssh>valdyn files over 2G require UDF, since 2G is 32bit <int> limit.

16:32<bsssh>valdyn 4Gb is def limit. if you use int without minus part, 4Gb are max filesize then.

16:32<bsssh>avu exactly.
16:32<valdyn>bsssh: above 4G
16:32<bsssh>valdyn UDF is much better anyway.
16:32<valdyn>bsssh: yea, i guess
16:32-!-zulu [] has joined #debian
16:32<rgb30>i was using rename 's/\.bak$//' *.bak to remove the bak suffix from all the files in a directory. i'd like to do something similar to all files in a directory, but without knowing the suffix beforehand. i'd like ',, and' to all have their suffixes dropped so that they all end in .zip

16:33<bsssh>valdyn I tell what I know. Its same as with FAT32. Same limit.
16:33<valdyn>bsssh: it must be some non-standard extension that win and lin can handle
16:34<bsssh>valdyn K3b determines if huge files present and writes UDF structure. Wodim supports UDF.

16:41-!-rgb30 [] has joined #debian
16:41<valdyn>bsssh: no boot manager does
16:42<valdyn>bsssh: your /boot is just fine on ext4 if you disable extents, which are pretty much useless on small files too i think
16:42<bsssh>valdyn Uh.. that kinda explains all. thanks m8 :) Must donate grub devs)
16:43<mallards>bsssh - is your machine dual core?
16:43<valdyn>bsssh: the boot system breaks with ext4 though, which means kernel option needs to be "rootfstype=ext4"
16:43<bsssh>valdyn afaik extents is supports for transparent compression of huge empty files.

17:15<bsssh>dmoerner please take a look at smxi some time, if you still have question why it exists or need information. I use synaptic in normal mode(upgrade) to get and install new software, untill I see it tries to remove packages, upgrade something big like xorg or points-out inconsequences. For this case I switch to smxi. Before this, I used apt-get dist-upgrade cause I tend to tryitout first instead of reading manual. And things started breaking
17:15<bsssh>. Now using smxi in cases I mentioned and no problems. I need sid-class freshness and gentoo is too big for me in one piece(besides, I love debian). Things show themself here, nothing personal. BTW I got rid of all sidux gfx.

17:16<tcsetattr>the {1..12} is totally baffling. it looks like a shell expansion, but rename(1) takes perl code. if it was meant to expand to a list of integers, then it's not going to generate one for each file, it's going to use them all for every file.

21:43<g0nad>I've got a machine with 5 SATA discs in it and 'sda' has errors. How do I identify which physical disc that is?
21:43<penpen>g0nad: generally it will be the first physical disk
21:44-!-max [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
21:44<penpen>g0nad: but you can use this command as root: "hdparm -i /dev/sda" to try to see the serialnumber of the drive, then just match it to reality. be careful when using hdparm because it can mess up your drives for real if you use it incorrectly
21:45<tcsetattr>krisfremen, what does forwarding have to do with color depth?
21:45<NSAJEFF>penpen, thanks. I wasn't familiar with stuff
21:46<g0nad>penpen: thanks. We actually found that disc to be the 4th drive. We got real cowboy on it and unplugged the discs until we found it be a process of elimination
21:46<krisfremen>i was wondering how to set the color depth to something lower, because i don't need true color, just basic black and white would suffice
21:46<penpen>NSAJEFF: np. you can use it to set other weird hardware settings (like udma etc on ide drives), but the -i flag is purely informational
21:47<NSAJEFF>penpen, what sort of weird settings?
21:47<penpen>lol im not sure, id have to reference the manpages

21:48<NSAJEFF>I just checked...some scary commands in there. I see the potential for harm now....
21:48<debianforlife>kados, sorry for taking long to respond. Have you followed the directions on the site? then you can run wicd-client as a regular user for the interface
21:48<g0nad>and you've got hdparm.conf for setting hdparm options on boot too
21:48<hmn>NSAJEFF, your nick has me wondering if you work for the NSA. (not that that would be bad... paranoid? who, me?)
21:49<NSAJEFF>hmn, makes you wonder, don't it?
21:50<tcsetattr>krisfremen, you can enable different depths in xorg.conf, and select one by adding -depth to the X server command line. I don't see the point though
21:50-!-NCommander [] has joined #debian
21:50<hmn>yes, it does... but maybe you don't, i heard from someone who said he did work for them that they have to admit it if directly asked
21:51<NullZero>kados, compared to fedora, debian installer is easier to comprehend
21:51<NSAJEFF>Just like a cop having to tell you he's a cop if you ask during a drug deal?
21:51<krisfremen>tcsetattr, it's on a remote server, and i would like to use my bandwidth for something else, because atm, x11 is using all of the bandwidth
21:51<krisfremen>i mean while forwarding it here
21:51<NSAJEFF>hmn, I'll tell you a secret; that's not true.
21:52<hmn>NSAJEFF, well anyway... it's off-topic anyhow
21:52<NSAJEFF>hmn, that's why I'm sitting in #debian-offtopic :)
21:52<tcsetattr>oh well the wire format for X11 colors is 48-bpp no matter what.
21:52<tcsetattr>the packets won't be smaller, they'll just have more 0's in them
21:53<kados>Nullzero : Totally agree man... I just wish my damn network card wasn't giving me this kind of trouble. Fedora runs too slow on my laptop... debain just runs better in my opinion.
21:53<kados>yum blows....
21:53<NullZero>using fedora just for an hour was enough for me to decide yum/rpm is not for me
21:54<NullZero>the concept just doesn't make sense
21:54<tcsetattr>on the other hand, krisfremen, if you're tunneling through ssh, you could enable compression of the ssh connection with -C and that might help.
21:54<krisfremen>i'm already using compressions

23:20<sysop>penpen; how do you run ratpoison? the command says it cant find a display
23:21<kop>sysop :
23:21<ajay>kop;but kernel should be different for server and desktop
23:21<lifedog> is there a such software which could listen and download the music online,no ideas?
23:21<kop>sysop : You probably need to install xserver-xorg
23:21<adb>[ 04:12:37 ] <adb> lifedog: tunapie
23:21<tcsetattr>ratpoison is a window manager, it runs inside of your X session. running it before the X server is started will not work.

23:22<luiscanayo>hola como estan
23:22<sysop>thanks guys, do I need to have a full blown xserver?
23:22-!-luiscanayo [~luiscanay@] has quit []
23:23<lifedog>adb:it named tunapie?
23:23<lifedog>adb:thanks, i'll search it
23:24<kop>sysop : You need the server, that's what runs the screen/keyboard.
23:24<adb>lifedog: apt-cache search tunapie
23:24<tcsetattr>having an X server is very "blown". the X server is just the bridge between some drivers and all the programs that use them
23:24<tcsetattr>isn't very "blown", I meant!

23:25<NullZero>how do i get out of Nano?
23:25<kop>sysop : Those cameras look cool. Low light and high frame rate.
23:26<kop>NullZero : You read the bottom of the screen where the instrctuions are.
23:26<lifedog>adb:i had search in the google,it is more details fot installation and instroduce
23:26<penpen>NullZero: see that text at the bottom with the ^ and a letter?
23:26<hmn>NullZero: the ^ means to hold Ctrl while you press the next button
23:26<NullZero>yes, its not working
23:26<NullZero>i did that
23:26<NullZero>ok i lied it worked :)
23:26<NullZero>i'm going to do this
23:27<NullZero>i'm determinded

23:27<tcsetattr>now you can see why I phrased it in the form of a printf >>
23:27<kop>NullZero : Learn either emacs or vi. If you choose emacs the only thing to remember is you hold down ctrl and press the x key, then hold down ctrl and press the c key to exit. Everything else works as expected.
23:28<kop>!tell NullZero -about paste
23:28<kop>NullZero : If it still does not work paste the interfaces file.
23:28<lifedog>adb:i'll try

23:28<tcsetattr>everybody wants to skip the mundane "learn to use an editor" phase of their education and get right to the chaotic "installing and configuring an OS from scratch"...
23:29<hmn>i have a question. how does debian decide if/when to replace configuration files that may have been customized?
23:29<NullZero>kop, the Wifi Settings are intact
23:29<hmn>e.g. files under /etc ?
23:29<kop>NullZero : Maybe it's not listed as "auto"? Anyhow, you still want the wire to work.
23:29<penpen>NullZero: was there a device called wlan0 or something instead of eth0?
23:30<tcsetattr>hmn, when dpkg upgrades a package, it compares 3 versions of config file: the one that came with the old package, the one that came with the new package, and the one that exists on the system now.
23:30-!-cisc0ninja [] has quit [Quit: leaving]
23:30<tcsetattr>if both the local version and the in-package version have changed, it makes you decide which one you want.
23:30<NullZero>penpen, no
23:30<hmn>tcsetattr, i see. thanks
23:31<kop>hmn: It can tell if you changed the config files, and it asks you about in on install/upgrade depending on your debconf (?) settings where you say how much asking you want done.
23:31<tcsetattr>if the local version has changed and the in-package version hasn't, your local changed version stays. if you haven't touched it but the in-package version has changed, you get the new version.
23:31<unomeasjon>your opinions on the asus eee pc?
23:31<tcsetattr>unfortunately it doesn't present the changes in a nice 3-way merge form like you get with cvs merge conflicts...
23:31<unomeasjon>your opinions on the asus eee pc?

23:32<kop>unomeasjon : It's too bad they took money from Microsoft to keep the Linux version from being priced lower than the Microsoft version.
23:32<NullZero>i have a first generation eee pc, its nice if you're into tinkering with it like what i'm trying to do
23:33<NullZero>personally the acer aspire one is a better choice
23:33<kop>tcsetattr : I think diff3 would be overkill for most folks. It lets you figure it out however you want. Simple is good.
23:33-!-lobao [~Humberto@] has quit [Quit: Ex-Chat]
23:34<tcsetattr>it's hard to figure out when you only get to see 2 versions of the 3 that are relevant. (I can never find the old-package version to do a proper comparison)
23:34<lifedog>adb:i didn't install streamripper,could i change to another audio player in reference?
23:35<lifedog>adb:i didn't install streamripper,could i change to another audio player in preference?
23:35<kop>tcsetattr : A valid complaint, methinks. File a bug report?
23:35<kop>NullZero : So, eth0?
23:35<tcsetattr>I think I'm at my limit of "bug reports I filed that were completely ignored".
23:35<NullZero>it was empty, so I added the lines, but how do i make it the default device?
23:36<NullZero>is "allow-hotplug eth0" the command?
23:36<kop>NullZero : It should now turn on at boot. If you "ifup eth0" it should come up now.
23:36<NullZero>ok, i'm gonna reboot
23:36<kop>!tell NullZero -about reboot
23:37<tcsetattr>interesting question. I think if you are using dhcp it just assumes you want to use the DHCP server's suggested gateway. I'm not sure how you'd override it if you wanted to.
23:37<adb>lifedog: i don't know, i'm used with streamripper, work very well
23:38<unomeasjon>kop, is that so?
23:38<kop>tcsetattr : It's going to be a matter of which interface comes up first, I think. Once there's a default route it won't be overwritten, I think. So one approach would be to control which interface comes up first.

23:41<NullZero>kop, whats qod2?
23:41<ddcc>a dmidecode response of " Type: EDO DIMM
23:41*adb an "add data base"
23:41<kop>unomeasjon : Oh, about MS. Thing is, the first Linux version _was_ cheaper. The next version had more hardware in the Linux version to justifiy being the same price as the MS version, but the hardware they added was sorta useless. More "disk". When Linux needs _less_ disk than XP. What would have made it a better box is more RAM, but that would have made the Linux version really kick XP's butt. So, I see the hand of the MS "marketing kickback" department.
23:42<Gun_Smoke>Anyone use iceowl?
23:42<unomeasjon>kop, that angers me... damn microshaft
23:42<kop>NullZero : You'd need to "/msg dpkg qod2" in this irc session to find out.
23:43<NullZero>its working!!!
23:43<ddcc>does a dmidecode response of "Type: EDO DIMM" and "Type Detail: Synchronous" indicate that i'm using sdram or edo dram?
23:43<NullZero>you guys rock ;)
23:43<NullZero>i hope you guys don't mind my inexperience
23:44<NullZero>i just want to get away from windows
23:44<kop>unomeasjon : It's been happening forever. Get used to it. Once upon a time, every PC came with a bios that was preset to first boot from CD. Why not? It was changed when live Linux cds started showing up? Why? I asked the head Linux guy at IBM and he didn't really want to comment. Guess for yourself.

23:46<unomeasjon>well, asus supports eee's that have their warrenty sticker torn so i might look inside
23:46<kop>unomeasjon : There's also power requirements. A regular drive has them.

23:47<sysop_>it looks like the mirror I've selected for packages is flakey, is there an app I can run to re-select from the list or do I have to manually change the sources.list?
23:48<kop>sysop_ : I always find it easier to go to the mirror list at and make the change manually. Easier than figuring out the answer to your question.
23:48<unomeasjon>kop, im loving the intel atom processor ... such great power from a little dude makes me happy
23:49<NullZero>can i post a link in here?

23:49<kop>sysop_ : Also, I like leaving the old one commented out. And then add your own comment that says why. This is a big strength of config files. You can use them to keep records of "why" things are the way they are.
23:49<hmn>NullZero, sure
23:50<unomeasjon>i need to install synergry on this puppy so i can use my nice keyboard on my big machine to type... the eee's keyboard is way to small for my giant sausage fingers
23:50<NullZero>this is going to be the coolest linux device ever,

23:51<NullZero>i somehow adjusted to the smaller keyboard, but i still need to use a mouse
23:51<kop>unomeasjon : My experience is that keeping the keyboard on your lap makes for the most natural and stress-free typing. YMMV.
23:51<ddcc>kop: thanks for your response. i looked up the manual for the motherboard online, and it seems that it supports both edo and sdram

23:54<kop>unomeasjon : I've enough to do without playing with distros. I stick with debian, openbsd, and some RH.
23:55<NullZero>kop, are you a linux admin of some sorts?
23:56<kop>unomeasjon : Next step, get a keyboard that's "split" so you don't twist your wrists as much. Otherwise the next 48 hour straight programming session may put you on the road to carpel tunnel. It's a pain to undo the pain.
