00:51<spande>I am trying to figure out if my inbuilt broadcom bcm4312 wifi is pci or usb. lspci shows a broadcom network controller. lsusb shows various broadcom devices. Is it pci? Does that mean lenny netinstall can work over it?

01:13<Gun_Smoke>oh I'm pulling my hair out trying to figure out what I'm doing wrong here.. I'm trying to install the new knoppix to a thumb. I have 2 partitions on it, /dev/sdb1 and /dev/sdb2 sdb1 has been flagged boot. Now when I mount /dev/sdb1 to /mnt and do grub-install --root-directory=/mnt --no-floppy '(hd0)' I get grub-probe: error: Cannot find a GRUB drive for /dev/sdb1. Check your
01:14<dpkg>Knoppix is _not_ Debian. Seek Knoppix help in freenode's #knoppix.

01:42<tcsetattr>Command failed: /dev/loop7 is not a LUKS partition
01:43<tcsetattr>you didn't specify any luks stuff in the create command...
01:43<tcsetattr>(I used /dev/loop7 for testing because I have some other loop devices in use already)

01:43-!-kd394817175 [~nohost@] has joined #debian
01:44<coniptor>tcsetattr: how do you mean? It worked for me except that I get sha1 and not sha256 I didn't specify a passphrase but figured you would.
01:44<coniptor>tcsetattr: I figured you would use another if you were using some loop devices already.
01:45<tcsetattr>I think you are getting bogus results because you are querying a luks header that you didn't write with your cryptsetup command. (maybe there's one left over from earlier)
01:45<tcsetattr>try running "cryptsetup status test1".
01:45<coniptor>tsetattr: Maybe, I'm new to LUKS dm-crypt

01:47-!-ernesto [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
01:47<tcsetattr>I've never attempted to use LUKS before, although I have used cryptsetup
01:48<tcsetattr>my hunch is that if you want luksDump to work, you should be creating with luksFormat instead of just "create".
01:48<coniptor>tcsetattr: As I understand it cryptsetup creates luks containers by default If you have a url to a site that details differences I would appreciate it.
01:49-!-mode/#debian [+l 382] by debhelper
01:49<coniptor>tcsetattr: I did use luksFormat before create when I checked the man page for cryptsetup and saw that create takes options for hash but luksFormat apparently does not
01:50<tcsetattr>could be just a slight omission in the man page
01:52<coniptor>tcsetattr: When I used luksFormat it used sha1 for the hash It shows aes-cbc-essiv:sha256 for the cipher and sha1 for the hash. Also if you know. Which is supposed to be the default key size. I have read 128 in some places and 256 in others. I can boot my cryptroot with debian's kernel 2.6.18-6-686-bigmem from apt repo but my custom kernels all say I don't have aes-cbc-essiv:sha256 support when I do and have dm-crypt aes sha256 modules loaded.

01:53-!-kd394817175 [~nohost@] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
01:53<coniptor>tcsetattr: Might be an omission but I did run it as this before: cryptsetup -c aes-cbc-essiv:sha256 -h sha256 -s 256 luksFormat /dev/loop1 and luksDump showed the hash as sha1 right after. Then I tried create to see if it was any different and it was not.

01:53-!-syntax [] has joined #debian
01:54<tcsetattr>I did your command again with luksFormat instead of create, and I have some inconsistent result
01:54<syntax>anyone here speak fluent spanish? I need something translated for me... off topic
01:54<coniptor>tcsetattr: meaning it shows sha1 instead of sha256 instead?
01:54<tcsetattr>it does say Hash spec: sha1
01:55-!-syntax [] has quit []
01:55<coniptor>tcsetattr: so I wonder is it supposed to or should it be saying sha256. I'm not sure if there is a more appropriate channel to ask that in. But at least I know that lenny does this too.
01:56<coniptor>tcsetattr: Can you run another luksFormat without specifying the cipher hash or size and tell me what it defaults to for cipher hash and size as well?

01:56-!-dmoerner [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
01:57<tcsetattr>I believe you're correct, luksFormat ignores the --hash option. I'm looking at source code to see why
01:57-!-shogunx [] has quit [Read error: Operation timed out]
01:57<coniptor>tcsetattr: ok
01:57<coniptor>I can read some source but don't program so can't follow everything.
01:57<tcsetattr>by the way, about libgcrypt: it's linked statically, because cryptsetup is on the root partition and is in /usr
01:58<coniptor>tcsetattr: even if linked statically shouldn't it show up if I do ldd /sbin/cryptsetup?
01:58-!-duraperidol [~nohost@] has joined #debian
01:58-!-toaster [] has joined #debian
01:58<tcsetattr>in case your /usr is crypted, you'd have a chicken/egg problem :)
01:58<tcsetattr>no, ldd only shows dynamic libs.
01:59-!-duraperidol is now known as Guest1021
01:59<coniptor>tcsetattr: is there a similar command to list statically linked libraries?
01:59<toaster>so. what's to stop someone from mounting my filesystem while i'm at church and installing a hacked bash or login script or something that will capture my passes and upload them somewhere?
02:00<coniptor>tcsetattr: my root is encrypted. I meant for it to be aes-cbc-essiv:sha256 keysize 256 but it defauted to key size 128 instead. this is on a raid1 I recently moved to from ide so I can still rsync back to ide and retry and get the luks layout I want just minus sha256 for the hash apparently
02:03<tcsetattr>well, I'm stumped, that code is too convoluted to just skim over and understand. cryptsetup luksFormat doesn't accept hash option; could be a bug
02:03<coniptor>toaster: bios password, luks or dm-crypt encrypted root, selinux. lock your system down. never any guarantees you just employ as many security measures as you can and running ossec, samhain, tripwire or anything similar to be notified if files change or their time stamps change and knowing and keeping track of your changes that will cause file time changes and knowing when something has changed that you did not do your self.
02:03<tcsetattr>toaster, the 2 things that stop someone from mounting your filesystem when you're not around are 1. physical security of your hard drive, or 2. use cryptsetup like we do :)
02:04<coniptor>tcsetattr: ok, well ty for checking. I guess I'll have to make due and join the maiing list once I figure out where it is and ask.
02:04<toaster>sorry. i got ahead of myself
02:04<toaster>forgot system files are inside the root fs
02:05<toaster>so which one tells me of changes in timestamps?
02:05<coniptor>ossec and samhain do as does tripwire
02:05<toaster>if you use cryptsetup what kernel are you running?
02:06<coniptor>ossec is pretty good. samhain recomputes its file hashes after every reboot which I have not determined if there is a way to make it remember them as yet, time and lake there of.
02:06-!-ZerialKiller [~zerial@] has joined #debian
02:06<tcsetattr>cryptsetup can be used with any 2.6 kernel, I think. it's not really new.
02:07<coniptor>tcsetattr: can you run another luksFormat without options and tell me what it defaults to? I'd like to know what key size and cipher lenny's cryptsetup defauts to
02:07-!-Guest1021 [~nohost@] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
02:07<toaster>this is what happened when i upgraded to 2.6.26
02:07<coniptor>You want a 2.6.10 or newer kernel though. Read /usr/share/doc/cryptsetup/README.initramfs.gz
02:08<tcsetattr>is "MK bits" the key size?
02:08-!-`villain` [~villain@] has joined #debian
02:08<coniptor>tcsetattr: I believe so, yes.
02:08<tcsetattr>"MK iterations" looks important too.
02:09<tcsetattr>I got this: Cipher mode: cbc-essiv:sha256 Hash spec: sha1 Payload offset: 1032 MK bits: 128 MK iterations: 10
02:09<coniptor>tcsetattr: yeah, I imagine so. I wish I could find an intermediate but not expert in depth doc on luks and dm-crypt.
02:09<toaster>when someone gets a chance, i'll be idling. i cant upgrade my kernel, because i get this error whenever i try to boot into the new kernel: still works with the old kernel, though.

02:10<coniptor>toaster: is the new kernel from the debian repo or one you compiled your self?
02:10<coniptor>tcsetattr: so it didn't use aes?
02:11<toaster>coniptor: it came with an aptitude upgrade

02:12<toaster>from the repos
02:12-!-kd394817175 [~nohost@] has joined #debian
02:13<tcsetattr>oh, it said "Cipher name: aes", I just missed that part
02:13<coniptor>toaster: I would cat /proc/modules to a file with your working kernel and then boot the non working one. when it gets to waiting for root file system just wait 35 min and it shoud drop you to a (initramfs) prompt where you can cat /proc/modules for the non working kernel and verify your not missing any modules you need
02:13-!-mydokumen [~mydokumen@] has quit []
02:13<coniptor>tcsetattr: ok ty. so it defaults to 128 in lenny as well then. hrm.
02:14<toaster>is that 35 mins exact?
02:14<coniptor>tcsetattr: your running with an encrypted root?
02:14-!-jackyf [] has joined #debian
02:14<coniptor>toaster: no between 3 and 5 mins maybe less. I did not clock it but zoned out waiting for it my self on my own system.
02:15<toaster>oh, thought you said thirty-five
02:15<coniptor>nope, sorry =)
02:15<toaster>what's the name of the java package for debian
02:15-!-cahoot [~radix@] has joined #debian
02:16<coniptor>toaster: sun-java6-jre
02:16<stew>toaster: there are many, "apt-cache showpkg java2-runtime" would list some in the "Reverse Providess" section
02:16<tcsetattr>coniptor, my root isn't encrypted, just my swap and some external-storage things
02:17<tcsetattr>cryptoroot is too much trouble, as proven by toaster here.
02:17<toaster>never yeard of it
02:17<tcsetattr>toaster, is your crypted root device actually on LVM, or did it get that wrong?
02:18<toaster>tcsetattr: set it up during fresh install
02:18<coniptor>tcsetattr: well reason I ask. I'm trying to compile my own kernel to use with LUKS but when I boot to it I'm told it can't decrypt and to check if I have aes-cbc-essiv:sha256 compiled in. I'm positive I have all the needed modules compiled in yet it does not work. Just curius if yu or anyone else has successfully compiled their own kernel that they were then able to decrypt their LUKS container with.
02:18<toaster>there is an option for using an encrypted lvm
02:20<toaster>sun-java6-jre doesn't appear in my repos

02:21<toaster>that specific package doesn't show up there eithert
02:22<coniptor>toaster: that is a generic search string not a package called java
02:22<toaster>yes. i know. i've been searching for sun-java6-jre. that's what i cant seem to find
02:22<coniptor>toaster: I believe it should have returned something
02:22<toaster>yeah. alot. but not sun-java6-jre
02:22-!-kanru [] has joined #debian
02:23<coniptor>toaster: maybe not sun's java but at least blackdown or what ever the oss java is
02:23<coniptor>toaster: maybe java5 or not lenny was just released stable so the packages may not have been built yet being non-free and all.
02:23<coniptor>also do you have non-free in your sources.list?
02:24<dcklqzrb>coniptor: new in lenny: openjdk-6-jre
02:24<stew>toaster: sun-java isn't in debian becuase it is non-free, openjdk-6 is the free version
02:24<toaster>is there a difference between using the two? i'd rather go open source if possible
02:25<toaster>or not
02:25<stew>toaster: yes, openjdk-6 will break more often
02:25<coniptor>dcklqzrb: ty I'll have to see if tomcat and opennms will run with it or not.
02:25-!-Gun_Smoke [] has joined #debian
02:25<stew>tomcat has run with free jres for years
02:26<coniptor>tcsetattr: ty your help btw
02:26<stew>(or else tomcat wouldn't be in debian)
02:26<ml>toaster add deb testing main to your sources.list
02:26<ml>then aptitude update

02:27-!-kd394817175 [~nohost@] has joined #debian
02:27<toaster>why testing?
02:27<stew>why debian-multimedia?
02:27<coniptor>stew: wasn't aware I recall tomcat or opennms not working with it but didn't recall which.
02:27<stew>toaster: if you want sun's java, you can get it from debian, its in the non-free repositories
02:27<tcsetattr>coniptor, I've tried to find exactly where that essiv mode is implemented in the kernel. but I can't.
02:27<toaster>stew: i have non-free in my sources.list
02:27<toaster>but i dont see it

02:29<coniptor>tcsetattr: thanks for checking. I found it in dm-crypt.c but it was not very helpful in determining why my custom kernel can not decrypt my cryptroot.
02:30<toaster>coniptor: what kernel?
02:30<coniptor>toaster: 2.6.26 from custom compiled with make-kpkg

02:32<coniptor>toaster: my custom kernel boots but when cryptsetup is invoked and asks for my passphrase it can't decrypt my cryptroot
02:33<toaster>i was just saying that earlier. are you stalking me?

03:55<toaster>quick question
03:56<dpkg>experimental is the bleeding edge of Debian Development. Packages here have been deemed unfit/DANGEROUS/untrustworthy/etc for release by the maintainer responsible for them. DO NOT INSTALL PACKAGES FROM EXPERIMENTAL WITHOUT KNOWING EXACTLY WHY AND WHAT YOU ARE DOING. #debian does not support experimental. For an actual description, see section of the Developer's Reference, or
03:56<dpkg>it has been said that unstable is the status of a Debian release when packages can be added to the system at any time that might disrupt the integrity of the whole system! Ask me about <break>. Not supported here, in general. It's also newspeak for not stable. If you have to ask whether you should use it or how, you shouldn't. apt-get install apt-listbugs apt-listchanges (!) See <testing>, <sid>, <sid faq><apt-listbugs><apt-listchanges>.
03:57<Obsi>Thanks Valdyn. I was googling for it!

07:42-!-kd394817175 [~nohost@] has joined #debian

07:43<themill>some devices use disk order, unfortunately

07:45<dr|z3d>Your player, dirk_.. does it offer any options to sort based on anything other than filename?

08:02-!-upsy [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
08:02<adema>i'd like to customize a lenny-live iso
08:02<adema>do i have to rebuild everything
08:03-!-kancerman [] has joined #debian
08:03<dr|z3d>Rockon: Or, try this from a terminal: ps -e |grep gdm
08:03<adema>or can i just download the "officiel" iso and mount it under qemu
08:03<adema>and do every change i want
08:03<adema>what is best ?
08:03<dr|z3d>Rockon: You should see gdm and possibly gdmgreeter listed if you're running GDM.
08:04<Rockon>i am just gettin two numbers with 00:00:00: gdm
08:04<dr|z3d>Great. You're running GDM as your "greeter" or login manager.
08:04<dr|z3d>So, once you've installed Xfce, when you login, you'd hit the option marked "session" and select Xfce..
08:05<Rockon>will try it out now,thanks man
08:05<dr|z3d>The session option should list all installed environments.
08:05<dr|z3d>You can opt to have a session saved as default, or only for that session.. gdm will ask.
08:06<dr|z3d>As for installing xfce, from a terminal: apt-cache search xfce
08:06<Rockon>k,and all my normal stuff unrelated to the environment wont be affected,if choose somethin else right?
08:06<dr|z3d>That should list all available packages that can be installed related to Xfce.
08:07<dr|z3d>Nope, that should be fine.

11:58<dr|z3d>Joseph: XChat has no rules as such, IRC does, though. And specifically, channels generally enforce their own rules. Quite often those rules revolve around being "on topic".. ie not talking about stuff not related to the channel.

11:58<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>.

14:08<vook>panfist: if you can ssh into the box or get to a terminal somehow, you can change your runlevel in /etc/inittab (id:*:initdefault) (or boot to single user and troubleshoot).
14:08<dpkg>Bridges link two or more network segments that use the same network technology. The network topologies do not have to be the same, i.e. you can bridge Ethernet and Token Ring. If the protocols are not thesame on segments, then you've got a router. Bridges are used to reduce network traffic, increase cable distance (by acting as a repeater), and also to link dissimilar network topologies that run the same network protocol. <bridge setup>.
14:08<goodxandros>sounds like all the stuff your not useing might be the prob

14:17<vook>panfist: probably best to reboot into single user mode and troubleshoot from there. Your terminals are still there btw, just messed up. You could kill gdm (/etc/init.d/gdm stop from within X), then login blind at the terminal, get in as root (blind), then type X -configure, wait a few seconds, then type X -config /root/ Hehe, probably easier just to boot into single user.

14:43<dpkg>from memory, preseed is a method of doing a remote network installation, or or Preseeding provides a way to set answers to questions asked during the installation process, without having to manually enter the answers while the installation is running.

14:44<abrotman>forestmars: try `aptitude update` and then try to install whatever you're trying to install
14:45<forestmars>actually I'm just using apt-- don't have aptitude installed
14:45<mojoman>drjz3d: I'll try the XFS option and see where that gets me. Thanks.
14:45<forestmars>also my dotdeb sources are commented out, so I am not sure why I am getting that error
14:45<forestmars>just uptdated apt & tried the install again-- same error
14:46<forestmars> php5-pgsql: Depends: php5-common (= 5.2.6.dfsg.1-1+lenny2) but 5.2.8-0.dotdeb.1 is to be installed
14:46<abrotman>forestmars: ah .. i missed that .. don't use dotdeb
14:46<forestmars>I have it commented out
14:46<midas>forestmars: do apt-get install -f
14:46<seanius>the dotdeb one is showing up as "newer", so apt doesn't want to downgrade it

14:46<forestmars>midas & abrotman -- that is safe to do?

14:47<forestmars>AH, thanks seanius
14:47<midas>then, apt-get remove --purge the dotdeb
14:47<forestmars>now we're talking
14:47-!-midget [] has joined #debian
14:47<dr|z3d>forestmars: apt-get install -f is often essential if you find packages not fully installed. The -f switch is "fix".

14:54<forestmars>also, I must be missing something, it looks like it says it's removing php5?
14:54<abrotman>forestmars: it's probably removing that php5-mysql because it came from dotdeb and depends on hte php5-common from dotdeb

16:47<Woet>I'm using iptables to filter out a small DDoS to some software, and '-A INPUT -p udp -m udp --dport 8600 -j DROP' is working fine (but blocks all connections)
16:47<Woet>but if I use '-A INPUT -p udp -m udp -m length --dport 8600 -j DROP --length 15', to only block the DDoS, everything goes through

18:56<maxi>over ssh
18:56<maxi>so i guess root?
18:56<valdyn>maxi: and you should not log in as root
18:56<maxi>why not?
18:56<maxi>make an extra user with root priviledges?

18:57<maxi>okay i will sudo su then
18:57<valdyn>maxi: like reading logs
18:58<maxi>so what i put there?
18:58<valdyn>maxi: and theres the adm group for reading some logs

22:11<zmonroe>Ok, so I have a Dual Boot System with Vista/Debian, If i reformat my Vista partition and go back to XP, thats gonna effect my boot loader right?
22:12<goodger>zmonroe: yes, you will be obliged to reinstall grub to the affected disk
22:12<goodger>this will not be painful or difficult, but it will require the use of a livecd of some kind that is the same arch as your debian install
22:12<zmonroe>ok, thats what I thought... And I would be able to do that from the live CD that I installed from right
22:13<zmonroe>thank god I have several systems.
22:13<abrotman>or teach XP how to boot debian
22:14<zmonroe>I'm good... I just am slowly making the the swap, my Mac runs debian, my Second box is running debian, my main box dual boots.. my laptop is gonna be the last refuge of windows in my house...
22:15<goodger>zmonroe: you could just burn the livecd prior
22:15<zmonroe>I have a live cd...

22:50<panfist>does anyone know what (s) means next to a device in mdstat?
22:51-!-sphenxes01 [] has joined #debian
22:52<panfist>"[n/m] means that ideally the array would have m devices however, currently, n devices are in use. Obviously when n == m then things are good. " My mdstat is showing [6/5], so ideally my array would have 5 devices but 6 are in use? that doesnt make any sense
22:54<blarson>panfist: sounds like you have a hot spare
22:54-!-mentor [~mentor@] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
22:54<panfist>that's definitely not what i intended when i created the array just now
22:54-!-valessio [~valessio@] has quit [Quit: Leaving.]
22:55<panfist>i created the array with: "mdadm --create --verbose /dev/md0 --level=5 --raid-devices=6 /dev/sda1 /dev/sdb1 /dev/sdc1 /dev/sdd1 /dev/sde1 /dev/sdf1 --spare-devices=0
22:56<panfist>i created the array earlier today and it synced, but when it was done it said one of the drives had failed...but i checked them out with SMART and they all i re-created the array, and now I get this weird [6/5] thing going on
