00:33<Tekno>deb etch main
00:33<Tekno>et ceterea
00:34<Silicium01>Tekno, I have etch apparently and sources had not been updated for a year
00:34<Silicium01>it looks like this
00:34<Silicium01>Tekno, can you please give me proper sources list for etch?
00:34<gsimmons>Silicium01: Note the use of "stable" in your lines.
00:34<gsimmons>!stable sources.list
00:34<dpkg>Despite the fact previous installers and countless websites will tell you to do this, do *not* use "stable" in your sources.list; use the release code name instead (e.g. "etch" or "lenny"). Upgrading between releases is no longer trivial; make sure you read the <release notes> and ask me about <etch->lenny>.

01:47<petern>yes it is fine. it is that way in almost all cases.
01:48<jm_>Silicium01: yeah that should be OK
01:48<Silicium01>ok cool, the reason why I asked is I have several sites on same host
01:49<Lazha>hey quick question. I got .tar.gz file, I made the directory doing tar xvzf pkg.tar.gz , switched into that directory and try ./configure but it says bash: ./configure: No such file or directory
01:49<Lazha>anyone knows why ?
01:50<petern>does configure exist in there?
01:50<petern>sounds like you are following instructions without knowing what they mean
01:51<Silicium01>one last question for tonight, I promise. I have set /etc/hostname to proper hostname. What do I need to do for system to take it in effect?
01:51<Lazha>I have 2 files in that directory
01:52<petern>so why do you think running ./configure would do anything?
01:52<Tekno>Lazha: ./flashplayer-installer
01:52<jm_>just copy to a dir where konqueror will find it
01:52<Lazha>I don't know :(
01:52<Silicium01>just run the installer
01:52<jm_>no need to run that installer
01:55<Lazha>its asking me for directory of konqueror, how do I find it ?

07:21<weasel>Woet: replace more parts. or ask the vendor to fix it. if you built it yourself you have to go replacing parts yourself
07:22<Woet>weasel: hmm, I'll just tell them to replace everything but the harddisks
07:22<weasel>for instance
07:23<TMcTrain>Sunny: first clue is, the bot up screen from the bios can you see the adapter listet there?

07:29<enriq>hello. In a dual boot scenario win+gnu/linux, I'd like to have a /home/me to share when booting in any of the systems. What I don't know is what is better to have, an ext3 partion to r/w from windoze or an ntfs partition to r/w from gnu/linux
07:29<Sunny>K, i will try it
07:29<Sunny>Could it also be that there isn't enough Power ?
07:30<TMcTrain>last week I fried two slots using a wrong 2LPT-Port PCI Adapter :-)
07:31<TMcTrain>the power should only be the problem while acessing the USB devices pluged in, the power is enough vor accessing the pci card
07:31<TMcTrain>* for

13:13<valdyn>mans9k: *maybe* you need the latest alsa drivers though
13:13<s4br3>Hi, I am trying to find the old lib but cannot find it in my unstable/experimental repositories. Where should I look? Thanks!

13:15<appaji>I am using the latest netinst testing image to install Debian on an X40 and the installer is not able to detect the hard disk. However, I can go to the console (Alt+F2) and see that the disk has been discovered successfully there.
13:16<mans9k>i added experimental to repository in synaptic, alsa 1.0.17 shows in list but it does not install
13:16<appaji>How do I get around this? There are a bunch of disk drivers that the installer shows and asks me to select from, but none of those work.
13:16<ml>hello, urxvt won't launch at my set geometry [125x83] set in .Xdefualts, but does when $ urxvt -geometry 125x83 and still the wrong size [a bit smaller like 125x82]
13:16<valdyn>mans9k: and we are supposed to guess the error?
13:17<mans9k>wait i will check valdyn
13:18<dpkg>hmm... xdefaults is xrdb -merge ~/.Xdefaults, or call it ~/.Xresources to have gdm merge it automatically

15:20<marcel>to X
15:20<valdyn>marcel: you said it didnt work at all, so there would be nothing to get back to
15:20<Pitxyoki>I was just thinking that if he had a resolution incompatible with his screen on the terminals, he could revert that at the boot options.
15:20<marcel>yes, it does...
15:20<valdyn>marcel: so it actually works fine
15:20<marcel>but I don't get a login prompt.
15:20<Pitxyoki>But once he sees the terminal while booting, I have no idea what's going on.
15:20<valdyn>marcel: and you just dont get a login prompt

15:51<epitaph>OK, but he didn't mention a separate /boot
15:51<azeem>linkslice: if /home is dead anyway, why not just backup /etc and your package list, and reinstall?

15:56<balleyne>I'm getting an odd error when opening PDFs in nautilus: the filename $filename.pdf indicates that this file is of type "pdf document." The contents of the file indicate that the file is of type "PDF document"... If I change the extension from .pdf to .PDF the error goes away. Happens with all .pdf files. Seems like a settings issue with capital / lower case file types... anyone know how to fix this?

20:01<tapion>hardware problem or software problem?

20:11<dpkg>from memory, 3r is Rotate and Resize (and Reflect) extensions for XFree86, that allow the xserver to inform the x-clients of desktop size (etc) changes, so they can update themselves.
20:11<Jpdota>acu: you mean xrandr?
20:11<dpkg>methinks xrandr is a command-line interface to the RandR extension; used to set the screen size, orientation and/or reflection;

20:28<tapion>really there is also another problem... also nspluginviewer crashes sometimes
20:28<acu>tapion: great - good luck
20:28<tapion>there are many things that doesn't work
20:28<john_>sorry, i should have been more specific. i just want to explore the settings
20:28<acu>tapion: what CPU do you have - what version of debian are you installing
20:28<acu>how do you do it
20:28<john_>basically play with the functions, use the 3d cube thing etc
20:29<tapion>cpu is intel core2 duo 7300
20:29<acu>john_ my man - just say I use debian lenny KDE and I want to see the setings
20:29<acu>tapion: what lenny are you installing
20:29<amphi>john_: you want to [install and] run ccsm (compizconfig settings manager)
20:29<amphi>acu: I think he wants to tweak compiz
20:30<john_>i have a gateway athalon 64 dual core 2.5 gig of ram and am running this with , dare i say it, windows also as a back up until i'm comfortable enough to uninstall windows
20:30<acu>john_ if you use KDE is very easy - first go to KMENU ---- CONTROL CENTER - it has almost everything there
20:30<acu>john_ you might want to install kde-guidance to have the hard disks seen there thoo
20:30<tapion>acu, do you know why does nspluginviewer crash?

20:33<acu>tapion: AMD came first with a 64 bit CPU so they set the standard - Intel copied it - so AMD64 kernel is for bot AMD 64 and Intel 64 bit cpu
20:34<tapion>do you think that could solve some problems?
20:34<acu>tapion: with one exception Itanium 64 _ which was a failure Intel tried to impose their standard but failed - so Debian I64 is only good for Itanium - if you have a Intel 2 core duo is 64 bit and the AMD64 debian will work for that
20:34<john_>oook that means ????? I'm sorry if im such an amatuer it's annoying but i love this thing and want to use it
20:35<acu>tapion: it may - and why you wouldnot use a 64 bit Operating System
20:35<amphi>john_: somewhere in that menu should be some settings thing - is it kontrol center in kde? dunno, look around

21:59<k1lumin4t1>has anybody gotten a nvidia riva tnt/tnt2 pro working under debian?
21:59-!-zevarito [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
22:00<abrotman>use the nv driver ?
22:00<k1lumin4t1>abrotman, using the nvidia legacy one
22:00<k1lumin4t1>abrotman, using the nv driver it's a hit. works out of the box on a common debian installation
22:01<k1lumin4t1>abrotman, but I would like to see if it's possible to set glx
22:01<abrotman>i doubt even the nvidia legacy supports those .. aren't the tnt cards from like 1997 ?
22:01<k1lumin4t1>abrotman, hmm kind of
22:02<goodger>abrotman: the PC I got for passing the grammar school entrance exam had a TNT2 in it, and that was in early 2001
