00:00<Silicium01>When i first installed Debian, it asked me to enter hostname and domain name. How can I reconfigure those two values? and where is this data stored?
00:00<dpkg>use hostname <hostname> to set the hostname, $EDITOR /etc/hostname to set it for the next boot, and $EDITOR /etc/hosts to set up local translations for a FQDN, or create /etc/hostname if it doesn't exist, or 'man 1 hostname' , or see /etc/mailname

00:58-!-flash__ [~flash@] has joined #debian
01:00<dondelelcaro>Silicium01: you can get dedicated machines, or you can purchase things like linode or slicehost machines
01:00<Silicium01>dondelelcaro, I was just thinking, why pay others, I have my own hardware
01:00-!-omer_ [] has joined #debian

01:02<dlt_>hello all
01:02<Warp4>Silicium01, it sounds like what you need is colocation
01:02<meshuggah>hi dlt
01:02<dlt_>Can someone help me installing debian in to a acer aspire one? I'm having problems with the network auto configuration.. Can't get the dhcp working..
01:03<Silicium01>Warp4, what do you mean?
01:03<Silicium01>Warp4, nvm, just googled
01:03<Warp4>Silicium01, i used to work for a company that specialized in that
01:03<meshuggah>i am evening to sure what idhcp
01:04<meshuggah>what is dhcp
01:04-!-ml [] has quit [Quit: bye...]
01:04-!-bubble [] has joined #debian
01:04<Silicium01>Warp4, is it worth financially?
01:04<Warp4>Silicium01, that is for you to decide
01:04<dlt_>meshuggah, dhcp protocol
01:04<sonictwin>does debian have multiverse/universe repos like ubuntu?
01:04<Warp4>meshuggah, google it.
01:04<meshuggah>yes probably a protocol, but i dnot know this one
01:04<meshuggah>i suck
01:04<Warp4>meshuggah, dynamic host configuration protocol
01:04<meshuggah>what is google?
01:05<meshuggah>Warp4, thank
01:05<Warp4>meshuggah, if you're that stupid, go back to Windozzzze :)
01:05<Warp4>just kidding
01:05<Silicium01>Warp4, google tells me collocation is more expensive
01:05<meshuggah>i am trying to learn :)
01:05<Warp4>i couldnt resist
01:05<Warp4>i know, meshuggah
01:05<meshuggah>1 month 1 week
01:05<meshuggah>of linux
01:05<meshuggah>1 month without dual booting
01:05<Warp4>Silicium01, look around, dont believe EVERYTHING google says
01:05<meshuggah>winshit bugged a last time before i fired his ass
01:06-!-nsa_fiend [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
01:06<meshuggah>ubuntu was easier, but debian is still ok but faster
01:06<Warp4>meshuggah, ubuntu has more driver support IMHO
01:07<meshuggah>people are friendlier here than in ubuntu, but ubuntu has 1K more people in his chat room
01:07-!-svend_ [] has joined #debian
01:07<Warp4>but, i bit the bullet and installed debian 5 on this laptop and am happy
01:07<meshuggah>i prefer friendler people
01:07<Warp4>heh friendly is good
01:07<meshuggah>i had some difficulty to upgrade to lenny
01:07-!-greeq [jake@] has joined #debian
01:07<meshuggah>but now it is ok
01:07<meshuggah>the only one thing not working is the tv out
01:07<meshuggah>i tried nvtv but without success
01:07-!-omer [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]

01:09<Txt-file>Silicium01: I have a VPS and I would not change to a colocation. the VPS costs 10€/month but every other solution is much more expensive
01:09<meshuggah>nvtv doesnt detect the encoder, it doesnt find the name of it

01:10-!-Bearman [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
01:10<gsimmons>dlt_: Have you read ? It mentions use of the pci=noacpi boot parameter, in the event of DHCP lease difficulty with Lenny's installer.
01:10<Silicium01>Txt-file, agree, plus all the hustle
01:10<meshuggah>if someone can help me with this one, it would be nice
01:10<k1lumin4t1>Warp4, what's collocation? Giving your gear to a organzation so some people give you a physical space/layout in which you "collocate" your box?
01:11-!-ml [] has joined #debian
01:11<Warp4>basically, you rent out space and internet connectiivty at a data center. the put your server in their rack(s) and hook you up, providing you a secure spot for your equipment
01:12<k1lumin4t1>yes, that's waht I thought
01:12<Warp4>plus any good colo company will provide you with 24x7 access to your equipment (physical and otherwise)
01:12<Warp4>some will even monitor your equipment for you for an additional cost
01:12<k1lumin4t1>physicall too?
01:12<Warp4>that is the one i worked for
01:12<Warp4>yes, physical
01:12-!-nesshb [] has joined #debian
01:13<k1lumin4t1>so they handle you a key or something of the rooms?
01:13<Warp4>if a colo provider allows physical access to the server, they usually give you a key to the faciility
01:13<Warp4>they usually give you, the client, a key
01:13<Warp4>but someone is usually either physically at the colo data center 24x7 or on cacll
01:13<k1lumin4t1>and how do they control robbery and related issues?
01:13<Silicium01>is it possible to have * CNAME to
01:13-!-sonictwin [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
01:13<Warp4>as i said, you're paying for the extra security
01:14<Warp4>no one else but you and the staff that work there have access to your equipment
01:14<Warp4>forget my pay extra for security statement
01:14<k1lumin4t1>what about other clients?
01:14<Warp4>plus most data centers (at least most should be) are monitored by security cameras
01:15<Warp4>again, most data centers have someone at the data center 24x7
01:15<Warp4>if you are looking for a colo provider, be sure that is one of the things you look for.
01:15-!-coty [~coty@] has joined #debian
01:15-!-Slydder1 [] has joined #debian
01:15<Warp4>but, as with other things, YMMV with different colo providers
01:15<coty>wow that was a fast reboot! I love the speed of 9.04
01:16<coty>now to see if compiz will work
01:16<coty>and it does not...
01:16<coty>wow... wrong channel
01:16-!-dlt_ [~dlt@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
01:16<k1lumin4t1>what the?
01:17<meshuggah>how is 9.04 faster?
01:17<meshuggah>way faster than 8.10
01:17<coty>yes way
01:17<stew>wrong channel
01:17<k1lumin4t1>Warp4, what do you mean by YMMV?
01:17<meshuggah>i know
01:17<meshuggah>but i dnot worry
01:17<Warp4>kilumin, YMMV = Your Mileage May Vary
01:17<meshuggah>i changed this to lenny cause it was too slow
01:17<coty>I clicked on the first channel in the list of xchat :(
01:17<meshuggah>but i will way to end of april

01:20<Silicium01>I'm trying to figure out why my postfix sends email with wrong host... or at least it appears so in the email headers
01:21<Silicium01>received by and received from are set to old hostname I used
01:21-!-Bearman [] has joined #debian
01:21<Silicium01>and although I updated hostname, it hasnt changed in headers
01:21<Warp4>Silicium01, check you /etc/hostname file
01:21<Warp4>did you reboot after changing it?
01:21<Silicium01>Warp4, I restarted /etc/init.d/
01:22<Warp4>Silicium01, reboot completely
01:22<Warp4>i had the same problem
01:22<Silicium01>Warp4, let me try that
01:22<Warp4>also, check the hostname values in /etc/hosts
01:22<Warp4>make sure you update those as well
01:22<Silicium01>Warp4, tripple checked, it's looking good there
01:23<Silicium01>Warp4, I even dpkg-reconfigured postfix
01:23<Warp4>also check the hostname in the postfix cf files
01:24<Warp4>sometimes the reconfigure doesnt reconfigure everything
01:24<Silicium01>Warp4, reboot did not help, will check postfix file now

04:26<tenzind>Txt-file, yeah ... but for some users (like my neighbour, who pointed out the missing synaptic to me) who are not very happy to use the terminal, this seems to be a problem :)

10:23<Zathraz>Hi. I have two servers (ancient config, not my idea, not willing to change it) that have shared /home through NFS. User/group /etc files are identical. So now I have a package I want to install which checks if a certain user/group (already) exists and then refuses further install/config. How can I force further install/config through dpkg (packages are downloaded and not available through apt) please?
10:24<Zathraz>user/group exists as package is already installed on the other server

10:33<marga>Hi! I've already asked about this like a month ago, but still got no solution, so I'm asking again...
10:33<marga>I'm having troubles with NFS. The problem appears each time there's a power outage. My NFS server is on an UPS, and thus does not go out. But the NFS clients all get powered off.

10:41-!-dmz [] has joined #debian
10:42<Zathraz>marga, how about letting servers go down smoothly and thus let them be able to unlock?
10:44<marga>Zathraz: I'm not sure I follow you...
10:45-!-mrg [] has joined #debian
10:45<Zathraz>normally you can have an UPS for 2 reasons: on very short spikes you want to let a server (or servers) keep working or you just give server(s) time to go down smoothly and thus keeping everything tidy without dataloss
10:46<azeem>clockfort: does your kernel support executing ia32 binaries?
10:46<Zathraz>so if you have client/server based UPS software like NUT you can plan which server goes down at what time/sequence
10:46<clockfort>@azeem I'm using the default debian mckinley kernel right now
10:46<Zathraz>does that not help resolving the NFS issue or have you already configured such a setup?
10:46<azeem>clockfort: so ia64?
10:47<clockfort>Err, it's the build for my processor architecture, yes.
10:47<azeem>Zathraz: the point is that servers shouldn't go down if not necessary, no?
10:47<clockfort>Azeem: Yeah, Itanium.
10:47<azeem>so the short spike scenario
10:47<Zathraz>but batterypower is always limited
10:47<azeem>clockfort: I'm not sure ia32 chroots on ia64 are supported
10:48<azeem>or rather, I guess they are not
10:48<clockfort>azeem: I found a guide online on how to do it with sid, so it was at least working then
10:48<marga>Zathraz: ah, ok, but today, for example, the power went out only for 1 second. Other times it has been a minute or two. Powering off and on the NFS server might take 20 minutes or so. Not good.
10:48<Zathraz>and you want to prepare for a second powerfailure right after the previous one.
10:48<azeem>clockfort: from what date

11:07<clockfort>azeem: Yeah, it'd be easier than AFS
11:07<bighornram>I've read where as an option to avoid the fsck after X bootups, ie when time constraints are present, one could hibernate instead of shutting down the laptop. Downfall stated that fsck wouldn't ever run then. How is fsck ing handled on machines that don't ever reboot?
11:07<clockfort>azeem: You'll definitely want to set up a ntp server as well on your network, because kerberos flips out when the machine's times are off, as the default kticket length is not so long

11:13<clockfort>marga: Nope, kerberos authentication (we're using MIT Kerberos 5) is pretty fast. We did have problems with NFS perormance, but they were solved by creating a secondary network just for storage across the fewer big servers that pull a lot of NFS traffic.

14:59<And1>avu: Mh, what is a MTA? :-o
14:59<dpkg>mta is, like, Mail Transfer Agent: a program that transfers e-mail in or out of a system, most often using SMTP. An MTA is usually accessed by calling /usr/lib/sendmail and thus usually includes that binary. Therefore, in Debian, all MTAs (<exim4>, <postfix>, <qmail>, <ssmtp>, <nullmailer>, etc) mutually conflict. Ask about <which mta>, <mta comparison> and <why an mta>.
15:00<avu>!which mta
15:00<dpkg>To see which MTA you have installed: dpkg -S /usr/lib/sendmail , or ask about <mta comparison>.

15:10<dpkg>from memory, mta comparison is
15:10<And1>!why an mta
15:10<dpkg>An MTA should be on most unix(ish) systems to provide a way for various services to deliver asynchronous system or error messages. This includes things like cron and at (to give you the output of jobs) and various daemons (e.g. the init script of mysql). The mta does not have to listen to network ports so spam and security issues are largely irrelevant. Ask me about <nullmailer>.

15:14<avu>And1, a 'smart relay' is an upstream SMTP server (mostly provided by your ISP) where you can just dump all your outgoing mail

15:23<dpkg>make-kpkg is probably the tool that you use for compiling the kernel the Debian Way (tm). It makes a package for your custom kernel which you can install and remove easily using dpkg. See man make-kpkg and ask me about <kernel compile> <kp mantra> <kernel build-deps>.

16:19<mase>jaimesilva oh, because you can't even install? well, that could be a problem...
16:19<jaimesilva>here is the deal there is a driver loaded but the installer says it doesn't detect any hd
16:19<jaimesilva>but I can see /dev/sda /dev/sda[1|2|3]
16:19<mase>jaimesilva can you manually mount one of these on the console?
16:20<edp>i've a little question! how can i create a wifi ad-hoc connection on my debian?
16:20<jaimesilva>well those are windows vista factory default partitions, I tried to use fstab in /dev/sda but it is not available
16:21<tiaz>does anyone know a wireless card whose driver supports 'mode master'?

16:26<pallino>yes, but it freezed the same.. I must say that was after the graphical install

18:52<tcsetattr>pallino, you can't get high resolutions because the monitor isn't being recognized.
18:52<stuckey>Does anyone know the state of support of the Intel 945GSE graphics processor?
18:53<pallino>ah.. so? what do I do?
18:53<tcsetattr>put in the monitor horizontal/vertical specs nd it'll start working I bet.
18:53<tcsetattr>look for "HorizSync" and "VertRefresh" in xorg.conf
18:53<dave193>pallino: I haven't seen your problem but it sounds like one I had (after I tried ubuntu's alpha 5 CD).
18:53<pallino>and how do I find the ones for the monitor?
18:53<dave193>Yea, setting those two solves it. They aren't in the default xorg.conf.
18:53<dave193>pallino: Manufacturers specs.
18:54<dave193>pallino: On their website, for example. Sometimes ebuyer and such also say the rates too.
18:54<pallino>mmm.. in my usual pc knoppix detects a different producer..!!
18:54<pallino>I can't remember thye specs, can I find them somehow?

18:55<dave193>pallino: I mean, if you know the manufacturer and model of your monitor, then you might be able to find the specs by searching for your model on the manufacturer's website.
18:55<pallino>I mean... generally gdm scans for the available modes (at least in my usual pc)
18:56<pallino>IIRC there's a sw that talks with the monitor..

18:58<tcsetattr>pallino, ideally for monitors that don't autodetect the numbers should be in the printed manual that came with the monitor. when idealism fails, you can just start guessing. take the defaults and increase the maximum gradually until it works

19:02-!-ryanl [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
19:02<pallino>so I put them in the monitor section, right?
19:02<tcsetattr>the point of the xorg.conf setting is to set the limits beyond which the monitor will stop working.
19:02<tcsetattr>the whole reason you're doing this is that your current settings are not what you want, right? what good is that
19:03<pallino>taht i just want another resolution, even with low freq
19:03<tcsetattr>it said "(II) I740(0): Configured Monitor: Using default hsync range of 31.50-37.90 kHz"
19:04<pallino>then why didn't it work?
19:04<tcsetattr>that means "since I can't tell what kind of monitor this is, I'm assuming it's a 20-year-old monstrosity"
19:05-!-cure [] has left #debian []
19:05<tcsetattr>what you need to do is go put HorizSync 31-50 or something like that. give the X server permission to go higher than 37.90 kHz.
19:06<nosklo>that can blow up some older monitors
19:06<tcsetattr>50 is probably good... it'll get you 1024x768 at least. but if you go to high, the monitor will be unhappy.
19:06<pallino>it's only six or seven years old
19:06<tcsetattr>my monitor is about 15 years old, it can do 50kHz :)

21:15-!-wnd [] has joined #debian
21:15<jason>Well, theres no 'XAA' in my config
21:16<amphi>if you mean after editing xorg.conf, you'll need to restart X - no need to reboot
21:16<amphi>jason: Option "AccelMethod" "XAA" if I recall correctly - check man xorg.conf
21:16<Silicium01>amphi, ok just read about it, makes sense. I ahvea question though: if I have dir1, dir2, dir3, dir4 and all of them have hard links but dir1 has the original data, what would happen if I deleted dir1?
21:16<amphi>jason: in the device section of the card
21:16<jason>Section "Device"
21:16<jason> Identifier "Configured Video Device"
21:16<jason> Option "UseFBDev" "false"
21:16<jason> Driver "intel"

21:18<amphi>Silicium01: they're all pointers to a particular inode, which is only unlinked when there are no more references to it
21:18<jason>amphi, did you view my post on
21:18<Silicium01>amphi, cool,
21:18<amphi>Silicium01: only the space for a directory entry
21:18<Silicium01>amphi, would you recommend rsnapshots backup utility or anything else?
21:18<amphi>Silicium01: note that you cannot hard link across filesystem boundaries
21:19<amphi>Silicium01: I've not used it
21:19<Silicium01>amphi, what have you used?
21:19<amphi>jason: not yet - what is it?

23:12<Pitxyoki>nsa_fiend, normally the gcc version that was used to compile the kernel is available at the sources.
23:12<Pitxyoki>What you have to do is to export some environment variable (which I can't remember now which one it is) before compiling the module.

23:14<vonsp>strange thing: after last upgrade on squeeze gnome no more starts with gnome-session, it is hangs up after changing xrootwin image
23:14<Pitxyoki>Did you compile your kernel?
23:15<vonsp>but with gdm it still works
23:15<nsa_fiend>what do you mean?
23:15<nsa_fiend>do you mean grab the tarball and do it manually?
23:15<Pitxyoki>I mean: apt-cache search gcc
23:16<Pitxyoki>Then dpkg -l gcc
23:16<Pitxyoki>Then see which version of gcc you have installed.
23:16<nsa_fiend>then i don't know what that means
23:16<Pitxyoki>Then install the other version(s) available at the repositories.
23:16<Pitxyoki>then I'm sleepy.

23:17<Pitxyoki>That's better.
23:17<Pitxyoki>What does gcc --version say?

23:18-!-xxiao___ [] has joined #debian
23:18<Pitxyoki>I didn't tell you to compile your kernel.
23:19<nsa_fiend>i'm asking you to define that term
23:19<nsa_fiend>if you don't mind

23:20<tiaz>gsimmons: thanks.
23:20<Pitxyoki>To compile is to convert a program from it's source-code to machine-code.
23:20-!-eleckttruss [] has joined #debian
23:21<Pitxyoki> convert it from the text that the programmer(s) wrote to the code that a machine can understand and execute.
23:21<nsa_fiend>...yeah. i know that
23:21<Pitxyoki>...given that the kernel is the core of an operating system...
23:21<eleckttruss>who know a program like Chesse but made on QT liberys for kde
23:22<Pitxyoki>If you compile your kernel with gcc version 4.1, you will have to compile all external modules that you may want to add to it later with the same version of gcc.
23:22<nsa_fiend>but specifically, does that involve grabbing the tarball and running menuconfig and such?
23:22<tiaz>it doesn't have to be menuconfig, but yes.

23:23<eleckttruss>how can i edit the grub2 ? i want to add vga=791
23:23<gsimmons>tiaz: The hostap and zd1201 drivers are also capable, but these are for older 802.11b devices.

23:24<Pitxyoki>To compile the nvidia module, you just have to do module-assistant auto-install nvidia-glx or something like that.
23:25-!-streuner_ [] has joined #debian
23:25<Warp4>theres a wiki page on how to go about doing that
23:25<nsa_fiend>things like what?
23:26<Warp4>using newer nvidia drivers
23:26<tiaz>it says rt61pci supports AP mode but I can't seem to set that mode on this machine.
23:26<Pitxyoki>What are we talking about?
23:26<nsa_fiend>do you have old ones installed?
23:26<tiaz>shouldn't I be able to "iwconfig wlan0 mode master"?
23:26<gsimmons>tiaz: That's right. Which kernel are you using?
23:26<tiaz>if I try with wmaster0 I get 'operation not supported'.
23:26<tiaz>2.6.24-23 generic
23:26<Pitxyoki>I have the current nvidia module installed on a lenny machine and on another, squeeze machine.
23:26<nsa_fiend>Warp4: if you go over to there is an #nvidia channel
23:27<tiaz>strangely rt61pci and rt2x00pci are loaded
23:27<Warp4>nsa_fiend, yeah i know, ive got the drivers installed. was assuming someone else was having problems.
23:27<tiaz>I don't see rt2x00 on that list though
23:27<tiaz>the card is an RT2561/RT61
23:27<gsimmons>tiaz: You'll need to use the rt2x00 drivers from GIT. Not sure if master mode operation has made it into mainline yet.
