01:36<jm_>looks like no one can
01:36<tristan>in Lenny, Realtek 8101E onboard ethernet, I have to reinstall the driver r8101 every restart, otherwise ifconfig doesn't show eth0
01:36-!-ene [] has joined #debian
01:36<tristan>any idea why?
01:37<jm_>you mean modprobe?
01:37<Steven_M>jm_: so your suggesting I do aptitude|grep dpkg gstreamer
01:37<jm_>Steven_M: no, the command would be aptitude search '~i ~ngstreamer'
01:38<tristan>jm: I use make install
01:38<ene>guten morgen
01:39<jm_>tristan: so you're using third party driver then?
01:39<tristan>jm: yes
01:39<Steven_M>jm_: ok thanks heaps :)
01:40<tristan>jm: I just did modprobe r8101... should that fix the issue you think?
01:40-!-konrad [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
01:40<jm_>tristan: no, why aren't you using a kernel driver for it?
01:41<jm_>tristan: what's its PCI ID? use lspci -nn to find out
01:41<gsimmons>tristan: Your device should be supported by the r8169 driver in Lenny, AFAIK.
01:42<jm_>r8169 has lots of issues and there's an out of tree source available from kernel maintainer for it - I recommend you install that if you have issues with 2.6.26 version
01:42<tristan>jm: lspci returns 03:00.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8101E/RTL8102E PCI Express Fast Ethernet controller (rev 02)
01:42<jm_>tristan: the important part was -nn switch :)
01:43<jm_>but no worries I found it in pci.ids
01:43<tristan>gsimmons: r8169 didn't work for some reason
01:43-!-matthieu [] has joined #debian
01:43<jm_>tristan: see above about r8169 - looks like many people have problems with it
01:43-!-jeremychang [~jeremy_ch@] has left #debian [暫離]
01:43<tristan>jm: the driver r8101 works... I just have to reinstall every restart
01:44<jm_>tristan: who knows why, but it shouldn't be too hard to figure out - just get the r8169 driver
01:44<tristan>jm: wierd thing is
01:45<tristan>jm: 1) I had that previously, 2) I need to rmmod r8169 every restart as well
01:46<tristan>otherwise eth0 doesn't show up on ifconfig
01:46<jm_>tristan: but does it get loaded before you manually do modprobe?
01:46-!-alephnull [~alok@] has joined #debian
01:47<tristan>jm: yes it (r8169) does get loaded before any modprobe
01:48<tristan>jm: I am going to restart to see if "modprobe r8101" did anything
01:48<tristan>jm: If I understand correctly, that "inserts" the driver into the kernel? (I am a neophyte)

04:14<CQ>hello, quick backup question, when backing up DBs, where is a 'normal' place to keep those backups, a user dir, a /usr/local/backup dir, a /var/backup dir, or where?

04:15*peej wonders if there is a LFS recommendation for backup locations.
04:17<CQ> /var/backup seems to be used a lot
04:18<petemc>a sensible place is on another machine or at least another disk
04:19<CQ>sure, I mirror the whole thing externally anyway, I just want to know where I can ger cron to stick the mysqldump...
04:19<petemc>anywhere you like
04:20<CQ>ok, where I _should_ get cron ... :)

06:21<sepone>i am on a machine that i just now upgraded from etch to lenny. and the kernel 2.6.26 fail to find the volumegroups. it's just stuck waiting for them when booting. i have recreted the initrd without change. i see a log line indicating dm_mod have loaded. what else is requiered for the kernel to find the lvm volumes ? or must they be upgraded somehow ?

07:40<dpkg>foo is, like, probably the first metasyntactic variable, it's a placeholder for some other term. See <> and <bar>, also read RFC3092.
07:40<djc>oh bah
07:41<djc>see, no response for that either
07:41<djc>it just means the bot doesnt have any info for that

07:58<jm_>you can use strace to get such info

07:59<djc>why do you want to log every process that runs?
07:59<hjb>djc i just want it to run for a short period of time to know how some mysterious processes running are created

08:00<hjb>djc i'm starting two skripts from within my .xsessionrc

08:01<djc>perhaps they don't get terminated when it stops/hibernates

08:02<jm_>instances of what - wm?
08:02<hjb>jm_ of the skripts started during xsession startup
08:03<hjb>djc that's what i'm guessing here, too
08:03-!-chad [] has joined #debian
08:03<jm_>hjb: that makes no sense - are you saying your X server gets restarted when you suspend the machine?
08:03<hjb>djc that's why i want to log processes during hibernate to see if that's true
08:03<jm_>you can't do that - hibernation stops everything
08:04<hjb>jm_ no, it doesn't. that's why it would make no sense that the .xsessionrc is processed after hibernation
08:04<hjb>but it seems to be
08:04<hjb>or something else starts those skript

11:05<bigeasy>some could implement the six sense into sudo

11:06<koollman>soon, it would become almost sentient

11:07<blockowitsch>yeah, isn't the sixth sense the one for dead people? dead people can't use super user rights, that would be useless
11:08<blockowitsch>Cadmium01: sudo is much to powerful and dangerous to do that automaticly
11:09<Cadmium01>I remember that before you used to issue sudo command and the enter root password
11:09<blockowitsch>nope you don't have to enter the root password
11:09<koollman>Cadmium01: that was su, not sudo
11:09<koollman>(it's still su)

11:19<blockowitsch>and if you worry about that...the password cache (or how is it called in sudo) is much more dangerous in that case ;)
11:19<blockowitsch>sudo remembers when you entered the pw the last time
11:19<blockowitsch>and if you reuse sudo in a minute or so, it will not ask again
11:19<Cadmium01>I see
11:19-!-xjunior [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]

11:48<enouf>it does it automatically already
11:48<enouf>unless you did what i did

13:57<fxiny>make sure you have not a custom but a default (almost empty) xorg conf

13:59<wellnow>ok. i don't know if i have a default xorg.conf lying around

14:21<rfj>also, as I'm under the impression that lenny, now that it's stable, will not get updated versions of basically anything, while squeeze will, so to keep up to date I'd rather still get things from testing (the reason I added it in the first place)

14:55<RealMurphy>Hi all, I've a very weird problem with thunderbird^Wicedove. Something happened (presuably triggered by me) that the main window won't appear anymore
14:56<RealMurphy>icedove -options open sthe options screen, e.g. -compose will not open the compose window
14:57<RealMurphy>it does not appear in the window list, aptitude reinstall icedove does not help, the add-ons all start without problems (as far as i can see)
14:57<RealMurphy>Also, other users (even ones newly created) expereince the same problem :(
14:57<RealMurphy>Any idea what could have triggered this?

15:01<rfj>RealMurphy: I'm having the same problem with different programs (in my case, the GUI login...) and don't know what's going on, but the closest I can guess is that it's some kind of typo and supposed to be g_dpgettext
15:01-!-jackyf [] has joined #debian
15:01<rfj>because when googling for symbol lookup error g_dgettext, it asked "did you mean "g_dpgettext""

15:03<Cadmium01>how can I configure certain init.d script to run last on boot ?
15:03<Cadmium01>it's running to early... while networking is not up
15:03<RealMurphy>Cadmium01: look which runlevel is affected and put another number in front of it
15:04<RealMurphy>Cadmium01: standard runlevel is 2, thus /etc/rc2.d is the directory to look into
15:04<Cadmium01>RealMurphy, how do I d that?
15:04<RealMurphy>Cadmium01: if it starts with S19 and you want to have it last you could change it to S99,...
15:04<Cadmium01>the scripts repeat in all rc*.d folders

15:06<Cadmium01>RealMurphy, before I go frther, a quick question. I added this startup via command dont rememmber exactly something like init-rd.d mysctript defalts
15:06<RealMurphy>update-rc.d ?
15:06<Cadmium01>right that's it
15:06<Cadmium01>so if I modify it manually now, is that OK?
15:06<RealMurphy>yeah, defaults will put it to S20
15:06<RealMurphy>sure, but you could use update-rc.d again :)
15:06<RealMurphy>First delete it and then do it again
15:07<RealMurphy>this time with the correct number
15:07<Cadmium01>what wpuld the example be?
15:07<RealMurphy>err, I need the man page for that, moment
15:07<RealMurphy>update-rc.d NAME remove (maybe you need -f as well)
15:08<RealMurphy>update-rc.d NAME defaults 99 (if it should go last)
15:08<RealMurphy>if you want it even later, you could start it from /etc/rc.local but that might not be what you want
15:08<Cadmium01>RealMurphy, that might be what I want actally
15:09<Cadmium01>is it run on login? or before login?
15:09<Cadmium01>the rc.local
15:09<RealMurphy>rc.local is run after the final runlevel was reached, it has nothing to do with login itself
15:09<RealMurphy>gdm for example is S99gdm IIRC
15:10<RealMurphy>rc.local is a file started by the system not by a user loging in

15:13<maredebianum>I am justs curious, where the information when to start (S20 is default) is stored. If I use something like rcconf, the start numbers are correct, and in the skeleton example there are Default-Start and -End defined, but not in all scripts.

15:15<valdyn>maredebianum: postinstall scripts can do it.
15:16<maredebianum>OK, maybe I should try that with my script again, for now I used update-rc.d to assign the correct number. Ah, I don't have a postinstall for my tiny script ;-)
15:16<valdyn>maredebianum: rcconf will not use the correct value once the correct value is "lost"
15:16<valdyn>maredebianum: script for what?
15:17<valdyn>maredebianum: iirc the update-rc.d manpage explains how to deactivate a service without loosing the number

15:24<valdyn>RealMurphy: no
15:24<valdyn>RealMurphy: its run at S99, thats late, but not at the end
15:24<RealMurphy>valdyn: Well that was a quote from /etc/rc.local on my lenny system, so "yes" ;)

17:06<berthold>hallo everybody. I have a strange problem. I do not have /dev/video and can not intall my Logitech webcam.
17:07<berthold>who knows what I can do? I am new to Debian (tired of Suse), but I do not know how to handle this problem
17:08<lupine>berthold, first step is generally to pray that there's a linux driver for the webcam. some have one, some don'tg

17:08-!-FoxM [~foxm@] has left #debian [Kopete 0.12.7 :]
17:08<lupine>if it's usb, then do lsusb and find the usb:id (format xxxx:xxxx) - you can use that to discover which driver to use
17:08<berthold>indeed, I never had a problem with suse, ujntil recently (new kernel, new KDE)
17:08<lupine>then you typically have to install the driver (module-assistant style)

18:44<eljefe>Trollinator its not Lenny nor Squeeze, its Sid
18:44<pasquale>adding everything like earlier? ro nvidiafb.blacklist=yes rivafb.blacklist=yes vga=791 or only vga?
18:44<stew>Trollinator: 2.6.26 was removed from sid, it still exists in testing
18:44<eljefe>which is prone to occasionally breaking
18:44<azeem>pasquale: only vga
18:44<pasquale>oh ok, so ro vga=791
18:45<azeem>eljefe: right, but Trollinator doesn't accept that

18:45<eljefe>why is my reboot haning at Setting System Clock ??
18:45<Trollinator>so i actually have to build my own kernel package?
18:45<Trollinator>what a PITA:
18:46<stew>Trollinator: perhaps you should run testing, not unstable

18:46-!-goodger [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
18:46<pasquale>azeem it works when we add only vga
18:46<Trollinator>i don't, i just need the kernel headers in order to install the nvidia drivers.

18:46<azeem>pasquale: do you have network on that notebook now?
18:46<pasquale>azeem though now i have to change it everytime or is there a script to save it that way
18:46<Trollinator>you're right, i could use the squeeze repository.
18:46-!-ShyGuy86 [] has joined #debian
18:46<stew>Trollinator: then you don't need to build your own kernel, you should be able to use 2.6.26

18:47<Trollinator>yeah... still i don't understand why people upload packages that you can't possibly install.
18:47<azeem>if possible
18:47<MikePer>Hello. I got a problem using serial line to connect to another box, it works from a terminal though. It's a handshaking problem I think. Is there a more appropriate channel or can a kind soul here help me?
18:47<eljefe>Trollinator stop trolling. they can be installed.
18:48<azeem>pasquale: or if that easier; run apt-get install pastebinit; cat /var/log/installer/hardware-summary | pastebini
18:48<pasquale>azeem give me a while then i've to install xchat
18:48<Trollinator>eljefe: the .28 headers?
18:48<Trollinator>how so?
18:48<enouf>pasquale: see "/msg dpkg fbcon resolution" for a summary of how to keep those kernel options for all newly installed ones too
18:48<azeem>pasquale: just install pastebinit
18:48<eljefe>install the .28 kernel
18:48<Trollinator>kernel-image? done.
18:48<enouf>pasquale: take your time ... it's ok
18:49<Trollinator>can i use packages from experimental in testing?
18:49<azeem>Trollinator: you can, but you shouldn't
18:49<stew>eljefe: he's correct, the linux-headers-2.6.28-* packages are not installable in sid
18:49<azeem>Trollinator: this channel supports neither unstable nor experimental
18:50<Trollinator>then i can't switch to testing, since i want to run KDE 4.

18:53<azeem>Trollinator: that's fine

20:17<webflex>Hello people, I have one question: what file should I edit to configure the language of the keyboard when the system starts up, in this case on the login panel?
20:17<enouf>adama: can you chown , or chmod the file?
20:17<adama>enouf: what does those options mean?
20:18<adama>chmod: cannot access `/media/disk/.Trash-1000/files/Look Around You/Series 2/Look Around You Series 2x06 live.avi': Input/output error
20:18<enouf>adama: well, it's more smbmount related - but maybe you need f,d,umask options .. no idea with XPoop
20:18<Tekno>that same happened me with ext4
20:19<Tekno>I just did formatting and reinstall :<
20:19<enouf>it appears, some weirdo perm issue incompatibility between unix perms and whatever xpoop uses
20:19<adama>enouf: I dunno about all that, like I said every other file is manipulate-able normally
20:19<enouf>adama: but none others show -???????? for perms
20:19<adama>what is xpoop? I'm just using cli
20:19<enouf>adama: stat the file
20:20<adama>stat: cannot stat `/media/disk/.Trash-1000/files/Look Around You/Series 2/Look Around You Series 2x06 live.avi': Input/output error

20:21<webflex>enouf Hi, can you help me?
20:21<adama>thanks :) oh well I'll just leave it, maybe do some fsck or try removing it from windows

20:23<twb>I want to forward syslog messages from nodes to a central log server, on an untrusted network. Where is a good reference on encrypted syslogging?
20:23<adama>webflex: what was your question?
20:23<enouf>adama: i also thought, at one time, i learned, you might get those ??????? from chmod -rxw=a filename or something - see, afaik, ntfs, doesn't have chattr, lsattr, , etc
20:23<webflex>Hello people, I have one question: what file should I edit to configure the language of the keyboard when the system starts up, in this case on the login panel?
20:23<enouf>webflex: gdm?
20:24<adama>enouf: other files on the drive say drwxrwxrwx 1 root root
20:24<twb>webflex: to begin with, run "dpkg-reconfigure locales" to change the system-wide language.
20:24<Replica9000>webflix: you might want /etc/X11/xorg.conf - not totally sure
20:24<enouf>adama: looks normal ;-)

21:41<twb>I recommend you use rtorrent or azureus instead.
21:41<twb>These packages are in Debian and you can use the normal package management tools.
21:42<twb>The problem with using "dpkg -i" yourself isn't so much that it's dpkg, but that you're installing packages that do not meet Debian's quality or legal standards.
