00:00<schmichael>oh, and debian calls firefox "iceweasel" :(
00:00<schmichael>other than that, it should be very similar :)
00:00<oodug>yeah I noticed that, wtf?
00:00<schmichael>legal issues
00:00<oodug>it still has all the same functionality though?
00:01<schmichael>only the name is changed
00:01<schmichael>because its trademarked
00:01<schmichael>but most distributions don't worry about that because mozilla really doesn't care if distributions use the name firefox
00:01<schmichael>(legally only binaries from mozilla can use the name)
00:01-!-omer [] has joined #debian
00:01<tcsetattr>Firefox said "if you use our name, you have to do security updates our way". Debian said "we have policies that conflict with your way". Firefox said "tough shit, take our name off it then"
00:02<oodug>ahh, I see.
00:02<schmichael>iceweasel is just a very unfortunate name imho
00:02<oodug>I agree...
00:02<schmichael>shitfox would have been about as friendly

00:03<oodug>Ok another question and this one may require a specialist
00:03<schmichael>just ask :)
00:03<schmichael>and be patient
00:03<oodug>can lenny run on a ppc machine the same as on any other architecture?
00:03-!-jcwu [~jcwu@] has quit []
00:03<schmichael>yes, however some packages may not be available
00:03-!-jcwu [~jcwu@] has joined #debian
00:04<oodug>with these distros can I run web hosting from a desktop environment or do I need to install the "server" version or something similar
00:05<oodug>hmmm maybe that's a silly question
00:05-!-jcwu [~jcwu@] has quit []
00:05<oodug>I get the feeling you can do just about whatever you want in linux
00:05<tcsetattr>Debian doesn't have a server "edition" ... it's just a matter of selecting the packages you want
00:05-!-streuner [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:05<tcsetattr>there's a "Task selector" which lets you choose braod categories like "Web server" and have it install everything that fits in that category
00:06<oodug>sounds handy

00:15<schmichael>oodug: the debian site can be a bit... obtuse

00:47<tazzy>noob here. i'm having trouble installing firefox. could use some help, please.
00:48<gokee2>Hello all, I am trying to get a Hauppauge PVR-150 to work on Debian Lenny. I guess it comes with the kernel because I get "dpkg: error processing /usr/src/ivtv-modules-2.6.26-1-686_1.2.0-1+2.6.26-13_i386.deb (--install): trying to overwrite `/lib/modules/2.6.26-1-686/kernel/drivers/media/video/saa717x.ko', which is also in package linux-image-2.6.26-1-686" if I try and do "m-a a-i ivtv" if I do "v4l2-ctl --all" I get "Failed to open /dev
00:48<gokee2>/video0: No such device or address" It is there as file says "/dev/video0: character special". In dmesg I have things like "[512114.063265] ivtv0: Unable to open firmware v4l-cx2341x-enc.fw (must be 376836 bytes) [512114.063347] ivtv0: Did you put the firmware in the hotplug firmware directory?" Anyone know what should be done? A lot of documentation seems to be fore etch, it seems there was no module provided with
00:48<gokee2> the kernel?
00:49<gokee2>tazzy, Real firefox or iceweasel?
00:49<tazzy>gokee:real firefox
00:50-!-m8ee [] has quit [Quit: Ex-Chat]
00:50<gokee2>tazzy, I see, so what are you trying? Official Firefox or a deb you found somewhere? And what goes wrong?
00:51<tazzy>gokee: official firefox. i get the download but am lost from there. just recently switched from XP and i'm still learning debian environment
00:51<tazzy>gokee2:also, have extracted d/l

00:54<gokee2>tazzy, Hmm, last time I did real firefox I did "cd /usr/opt && tar zxf firefox- firefox && ln -s /opt/firefox/firefox /usr/local/bin/firefox"
00:55<gokee2>tazzy, If you have the tar untared you should be able to just run firefox though
00:55<tazzy>gokee2: whew! i have no idea what you just wrote
00:56-!-Gun_Smoke_ [] has left #debian [Leaving]
00:56<gokee2>tazzy, Heh, if you open up the firefox folder is there something called firefox you can run?
00:56<tazzy>i already have file extracted to /firefox directory
00:56<stew>tazzy: "aptitude install iceweasel"
00:57<tazzy>yes, it runs but it keeps asking me if i want to run it or run from terminal, cancel, etc
00:57<tazzy>stew: what
00:57<tazzy>stew: what's iceweasel
00:57<gokee2>tazzy, So do "cd /firefox" (Why would you put it at the root of your filesystem?) then "./firefox" whats that give you?
00:58<stew>tazzy: debian's fork of firefox, which is the same as firefox except the artwork and name has changed
00:58<tazzy>it's not at root
00:58<gokee2>tazzy, iceweasel is the debian version of firefox
00:58<stew>tazzy: debian has firefox but debian isn't allowed to use the firefox trademark

01:02<gokee2>tazzy, Are you inside the firefox directory? Although if you don`t have a reason for wanting firefox instead of iceweasel you really should go the iceweasel route as Debian updates that so it gets updated along with your other packages and does some other Debian patching
01:02<tazzy>yes, i'm inside the firefox dir
01:03<tazzy>i know nothing of iceweasel, firefox i used on XP
01:03<tazzy>currently using epiphany webbrowser
01:03<stew>tazzy: "aptitude install iceweasel && iceweasel" it IS firefox
01:04<gokee2>tazzy, iceweasel is firefox with a different name, everything else is the same (except for a few things to make it work better in Debian)
01:04<tazzy>okay, will try using iceweasel. thanks. does it support flash, etc?
01:06-!-NCommander [] has joined #debian
01:06<gokee2>tazzy, Same as firefox there, you will need a plugin, gnash is the free one or you can opt for the non-free (no cost) flash

02:47<Morty>Is there a built-in method to backout packages under Debian? I suppose there is always restoring from backup. And I suppose I could just keep packages in the apt-cache, and should I need to back something out, run dpkg -i $oldfile.deb. Neither solution seems ideal, though. Traditional OSs normally store backout information for patches; does Debian have something similar?
02:49<ds08>anyone from germany here?

02:51-!-rain [] has joined #debian
02:51<rain>hey is there a linux program... (or way) to rewrite a cd-r like BurnAgain(for Mac) can?
02:52<dondelelcaro>Morty: backout in what way? upgrades necessarily involve one way functions, so it's not possible to revert on command
02:52<dondelelcaro>Morty: that said, the previous versions are available via or similar
02:53<Morty>dondelelcaro: on other OSs, such as Solaris and Windows, all files touched during a patch are backed up to a patch-specific directory. If you need to backout the patch, the older files are restored. I was hoping for a Debian equivalent.
02:54<dondelelcaro>Morty: you can do the same by using lvm with a checkpoint
02:55<dondelelcaro>Morty: but as far as operating system-related things go, everything that Debian distributes is in a package, and you can easily go to the previous version
02:55<Morty>dondelelcaro: indeed. But nothing within the package manager?
02:55<dondelelcaro>Morty: so the whole concept of "patches" is kind of backwards
02:55<dondelelcaro>Morty: as far as the package manager is concerned, you just install the old version
02:56<gokee2>Morty, You can remove --purge
02:56-!-Hell_Rok [~aoeu@] has joined #debian
02:56<Morty>dondelelcaro: I'm familiar with the difference between Debian packages and other OS patches. I just want a way built into Debian to do proper patch backouts.
02:56<Morty>s/patch backouts/package backouts/ ;)
02:56<dondelelcaro>there's no way to sanely revert packages
02:56-!-gokee2 is now known as Gokee2
02:57-!-debiantest [~debiantes@] has quit [Quit: 暂离]
02:57<dondelelcaro>the most you can get is either an LVM, which is total, or installing the old, which we already give
02:57<dondelelcaro>what windows and solaris do is try to give you parts of the LVM, but only for things that are registered and use their API
02:57<Morty>Ick. That means reverting everything. Not good if a bunch of other state has changed, and I just want to backout the one package.
02:57<dondelelcaro>Morty: then you just install the old version of that one package
02:58<gsimmons>Gokee2: Yes, saa717x.ko was included in kernel 2.6.26, use of 'ivtv-source' is not necessary. You're required to provide the requested firmware from the associated Windows driver, see http;//
02:58<rain>hey is there a linux program... (or way) to rewrite a cd-r like BurnAgain(for Mac) can?

02:58-!-ds08 [] has left #debian []
02:59<dondelelcaro>rain: if you ask a specific question about what burnagain actually does, someone may have an example. That said, if you mean re-burning already burned cd-rs, I'm not aware of such a thing
02:59<dondelelcaro>rain: furthermore, given the low cost of cd-rs, you might as well just use a new one
02:59<Morty>dondelelcaro: is Debian designed to allow that? I thought packages weren't designed for downgrading?
02:59<dondelelcaro>(if you mean cd-rws, any of the cd writing packages can handle erasing them)
03:00<Morty>rain: that should be physically impossible. How does it work?
03:00<dondelelcaro>Morty: they aren't designed for downgrading, because there's no way to do that.
03:00<Morty>dondelelcaro: then how does installing an old version work?
03:00<rain>morty: not sure, but it seems apple came up with a way...
03:00<dondelelcaro>Morty: in most cases, installing an old version will just work, because there's no need to do anything special
03:00<potyl>rain: i think that what you need is to burn your CD in UDF format
03:01-!-LoRez [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
03:01<Gokee2>gsimmons, Hmm, I have not seen that page thanks
03:01<dondelelcaro>Morty: however, if the new version involves a change in on-disk binary formats (say, a major version upgrade in a db), then there's no way to revert that.
03:01<Morty>rain: by any chance, are you talking about CDRs that are burned only partially, and Apple is letting you append?
03:01-!-LoRez [] has joined #debian
03:01<rain>Morty: nope, somehow it just enables you to write over cdrs..
03:01<dondelelcaro>(and frankly, there's pretty much no way in hell that solaris's or window's system can downgrade that sanely either, so it's not like it gains you much)
03:01<Morty>rain: if so, look for multisession support. I think k3b can do it. [mkisofs/cdrecord can do it if you are command-line person.]
03:02<rain>thank you potyl>
03:02<potyl>rain: i remember doing that in windows 8 years ago :)
03:02<Morty>dondelelcaro: I understand about the limitations; I've encountered them.
03:02<potyl>rain: at the end the magical trick was just a special formatting of the CD in UDF.
03:03<potyl>rain: although I never tried it in linux. I don't how to do it.
03:03-!-kalpik [~kalpik@] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
03:03<dondelelcaro>Morty: ok; just making sure we're on the same page here.
03:03*dondelelcaro has actually designed systems to do revertable downgrades in Debian
03:03<Morty>dondelelcaro: however, especially if booting is broken on a remote system 1000s of miles away, it's nice to be able to remote access the box via remote serial terminal and do a backout.
03:03-!-vortex [~ctaylor@] has joined #debian
03:04-!-kalpik [~kalpik@] has joined #debian
03:04<dondelelcaro>Morty: so you just access the machine via a remote serial terminal, and install the previous version of the package, and if necessary, clean it up manually.
03:04<potyl>Can someone help me with my sound configuration? :'(
03:04<potyl>After each reboot I need to configure alsa, otherwise I get no sound
03:04<Morty>dondelelcaro: not if it won't boot, and I can only bring it up without network. Can't download packages. :(
03:04-!-alephnull [~alok@] has joined #debian
03:05<dondelelcaro>Morty: uh... you'll always have the old kernel version insitalled
03:05<dondelelcaro>(unless you've specifically gotten rid of the kernel version which you're actually running, which is all kinds of stupid)
03:05<Morty>dondelelcaro: if the problem is kernel and not something else, like the netkit stuff.
03:06<dondelelcaro>Morty: if the problem is the netkit stuff, it's still possible to get network working
03:06<dondelelcaro>Morty: and worst comes to worst, you can always send stuff over the serial line
03:06<Morty>dondelelcaro: <shrug>. OK. I haven't yet had a case where I needed to do this, but I'm being paranoid, because preparing to do some upgrades.
03:06<Gokee2>potyl, What are you using to configure alsa? I thought alsaconf was gone?
03:07<potyl>that's what I got told to do yesterday
03:07<dondelelcaro>Morty: this is why you have test systems which are set up exactly the same as the machines that you are going to upgrade, and you upgrade them first.
03:07<Morty>potyl: by any chance, is it because the volume isn't coming on by default?
03:07<potyl>and then I need to go to alsamix and toggle analog output
03:07<Gokee2>potyl, Really? You on etch?
03:07<potyl>fresh installed from yesterday
03:08<dondelelcaro>!tell potyl -about alsa checklist
03:08<Morty>dondelelcaro: yeah, I do that. Except when I went from sarge=>etch, I had *one* box that didn't want to come up correctly. And it was in another continent.
03:08<dondelelcaro>potyl: follow what dpkg said
03:08<potyl> Morty: at first the sound card is not detected, i need to run alsaconf and then I get no sound, which I fix by toggling the analog sound through alsamix
03:08<dondelelcaro>Morty: it happens; it's why serial consoles are a necessity
03:08<Morty>I never did figure out why.
03:09<Morty>dondelelcaro: yup.
03:09<Gokee2>potyl, Really? Where did you find alsaconf? I thought it was gone in Lenny?
03:09<potyl>dondelelcaro: that's exactly what I got told yesterday :D
03:09<Morty>potyl: see if maybe some modules get loaded after running alsaconf. If they are, add them to /etc/modules.

03:09<potyl>Gokee2: alsaconf is there (i think) at least I have it
03:09<dondelelcaro>potyl: and you followed those instructions, and what happened?
03:10<dondelelcaro>you pretty much shouldn't have to run alsaconf at all
03:10<potyl>dondelelcaro: as I said at first nothing because I had no sound, after I played with alsamixe then it all worked.
03:11<Gokee2>Ah there it is, I was not root. I thought it was going away in Lenny? Well I am happy to see its still there.
03:11-!-ubuntu [~ubuntu@] has joined #debian
03:11<potyl>the problem is that I need to do manually: "sudo alsaconf" (sometimes twice) and the "sudo alsamixer"
03:11<Morty>potyl: if the problem gets fixed after playing with alsamixer, then your problem is just that the sound is defaulting to volum 0. Can fix that with a script if you don't like it.
03:11<ubuntu>how are you?
03:11<ubuntu>what happend?
03:12<dondelelcaro>potyl: if the sound is defaulting to zero, run /etc/init.d/alsa-utils stop; /etc/init.d/alsa-utils start;
03:12<potyl>Morty: the problem is worse because in the beginning "asoundconf list" gives me no card
03:12<streuner_>ubuntu: please read /topic
03:12-!-ubuntu [~ubuntu@] has quit []
03:12<potyl> Morty: I added a few modules to /etc/modules but it doesn't help
03:13<Morty>potyl: did you reboot?
03:13<potyl>many times
03:14<Morty>potyl: I'm confused. In the last few minutes, you managed to run alsaconf, learn which new modules get loaded, added them to /etc/modules, and rebooted many times?
03:14<potyl>The card was working before with many versions of ubuntu (8.04 and less) so I saved the results of lsmod, did a diff and added the missing modules to /etc/modules. But after each reboot I still need to configure the sound
03:14<potyl> Morty: yes, exactly and after each reboot i need to reconfigure alsa
03:15<potyl>Morty: what's funny is that sometimes alsa doesn't find the sound card so I need to run it a second time!
03:15<Morty>potyl: you are running ubuntu rather than Debian?
03:15<potyl>Morty: No, yesterday I installed Debian.
03:16<streuner_>*bunt* doesnt use alsaconf...
03:16<potyl>Morty: although before this computer had Ubuntu
03:16<potyl>streuner_: so what do you use? I don't care which sound system I use as long as I get sound.

03:17<streuner_>well, we hadnt many problems (sound) at all
03:17<potyl>lucky you!

03:18<enouf>alsactl -store
03:18<Morty>potyl: what are you using for sound?
03:18<enouf>but .. install alsa-oss pkg
03:18<potyl>Morty: you mean the player?
03:19<enouf>also /init.d/alsa replaces init.d/alsa-utils , IINM
03:19<dpkg>it has been said that speaker-test is do; "speaker-test -tsine -f440 -c2" or perhaps "speaker-test -t wav -c 2" for a nicer female voice, instead of a tone to test if speakers are working in alsa (install alsa-utils), ask me about <alsa checklist> and <soundcheck>
03:19<streuner_>enouf: did you read what kind of problem he has?
03:20<Morty>potyl: do you have udev installed?
03:20<potyl>udev is there
03:20<enouf>pgrep udevd
03:21<potyl>it's running
03:21<streuner_>enouf: well, he cp the diffs of *bunt* to Debian and now his alsa stuff is gone after he reboot...
03:21<Morty>potyl: OK. Paste lspci -n output into URL above.
03:21<Morty>potyl: to determine what sound module *should* be working.
03:22<enouf>sounds like some gnome/kde borkage, or /etc/{modules,modprobe}/conf (that shouldn't exist), or /etc/modprobe.d/ missing module parm
03:23<enouf>streuner_: right, got that now, thanks - that's silly to do IMHO though
03:23<Morty>potyl: also, check you kernel logs (i.e. from dmesg or /var/log/kern.log) before and after getting your sound card to work.
03:24<streuner_>potyl: get the version of ALSA of *bunt* and use it just in Debian, done
03:24<enouf>i also wonder if any ~/.asound* files exist
03:24<streuner_>potyl: cat /proc/asound/version
03:24<potyl>Advanced Linux Sound Architecture Driver Version 1.0.16.
03:24<streuner_>thats from *bunt*?
03:25<potyl>i removed all ~/.asound* (they where making the troubleshooting more difficult)
03:25<potyl>is /etc/init.d/alsa-utils needed?
03:25<streuner_>dont bother us, just re-install Debian
03:26<potyl>I already have the proper drivers in /etc/modules, maybe this script is removing them
03:26<potyl>streuner_: this is a new debian installed yesteday
03:26<potyl>I haven't touched a single thing!
03:26<streuner_>well, you didnt make many changes yet...
03:26<streuner_>just reinstall
03:27<Morty>streuner_: um, if the problem happened once, it should happen again on reinstall.
03:27<potyl>streuner_: since I have this system it was always running linux. And the sound was working always. I don't see how reinstalling (which I did yesterday) will fix things
03:27<streuner_>but notice what kind of version *bunt* use for ALSA

06:49<pgimeno>okay, my migration to libglib1.2ldbl finally succeeded without losing the old packages (including xmms, gtop, glotski, and more). It involves a really ugly hack to edit the control file of libglib1.2ldbl to not conflict with libglib1.2 and installing a dummy libglib1.2. In case anyone has a better idea of how an update of libglib1.2ldbl won't break my obsolete packages again, I'm all ears.
06:50<Defender>shnitzel: I repeat, 1. install nvidia-glx, nvidia-kernel, nvidia-xconfig, 2. run in root-shell "nvidia-xconfig", 3. restart

11:46<abrotman>sounds like a hardware issue ?

12:20<victor_>Debian users: at least up the the kernel released with Lenny, Debian applies a patch in the Debian kernel sources which prevents the use of ata_piix with PATA devices (like the IDE bus for the Ultrabay). You will have to either use an upstream kernel or (re)patch the Debian kernel sources.

14:10<djc>Clear, it sounds like you need someone to introduce you to debian, and *nix in general.
14:10<s3a>what do i have to apt-get install for partition editor to be able to format drives with the FAT filesystem
14:11<djc>s3a, you dont need any partitions. write the image to the whole device (eg /dev/sda, like you say you did)
14:11<djc>at least not for botting and installing
14:11<djc>Or have you installed, and now you want to use the usb drive for storing stuff?
14:12<djc>'format' is roughly equivalnt to 'mkfs'
14:12<djc>you might have mkfs.vfat
14:12-!-makke [] has joined #debian
14:14<s3a>djc, o wait sorry, i used the method that limits my partition to 256mb but the other method: sudo mkdosfs /dev/sda1 returns "command not found"
14:16<djc>ok, wait, earlier you were trying to boot from it to install, are you still trying to do that?
14:16<djc>or are you now done with that and want to store files on it?
14:16-!-craigevil [] has joined #debian
14:16<djc>booting uses no partitions, you dont even need to mess with them, just write the bootable image to the physical device

14:17<s3a>djc, yes im on a lenny computer

14:34<craigevil>or just make it fat32
14:34<djc>that should still be enough room for an .iso
14:34<djc>craigevil, will syslinux boot fat32?
14:34<djc>the docs say to use 16, i considered the possibility that it couldnt
14:35<tp>Hi! I need to know which color depth my xorg is working now. Is there a way to do it?
14:36<s3a>djc, ok now sudo mkdosfs /dev/sda1 worked
14:36<s3a>djc, i had to format it as fat16
14:36<djc>according to one bit of info i found syslinux doesnt support fat32
14:36<djc>its from 07, so it may or may not be still the case
14:36<djc>but 16 allows up to 2g which should be plenty
14:37<djc>s3a, did you make the partition smaller?
14:37<tp>cahoot, cool! Now I know it's working at 24bit color depth. Is there a way to force xorg to use 16bit?
14:37<s3a>djc, i made the partition 4gb and now i do sudo syslinux /dev/sda1?
14:37<djc>uh... you were able to make a fat16 part on a 4g drive?
14:38<s3a>djc, ya vfat or wtv its calleds
14:38<s3a>djc, oops
14:38<s3a>djc, it says fat32
14:38<djc>hrm.. if you didnt specifically say fat16 it might have made it fat32
14:39<djc>yeah, make it smaller than @g
14:39<djc>then re mkfs it fat16
14:39<fxiny>no fat16 > 2G
14:39<fxiny>pathetic fs :P
14:39<dpkg>[vfat] a very fat 32 bit version of a pathetic filesystem, or apt-get install dosfstools, then man mkfs.vfat, or for info on getting write access for regular users, "/msg apt vfatrw", or you should not be using this filesystem unless Windows needs to read it.
14:39<s3a>djc, so i format it as like 1.5 gb fat 16/

15:14<fxiny> what message ?
15:14<fxiny>i'm fresh of fixing my luks

15:14<xorAxAx>whats the nick of florian weimer?
15:15<neoXite>works fine on a non-root-luks'ed system
15:15<fxiny>ahh just that ? eveything is fine then , no borkage

16:45<neoXite>hello, i need to enable ip networking in my lenny initrd and have gotten as far as IP-Config leasing an ip address from the DHCP server. on an initrd shell the command 'ipconfig eth0' works fine, but i can't figure out the syntax to just manually specify an ip confiuration
16:45<djc>that explains it
16:45<abrotman>e7th04sh: but you're using lenny .. he's not talking about you
16:45<e7th04sh>sorry for the trouble and thanks for all the help
16:45<djc>i migrated my prior xchat config over before I ran it, so I must have missed that
16:46<neoXite>'ipconfig eth0' does not work
16:46<djc>I actually sought this channel out ;)
16:46<dpkg>Your network configuration is in the file /etc/network/interfaces ; "man 5 interfaces" for docs, (zless /usr/share/doc/ifupdown/examples/network-interfaces.gz for an example). Start and stop your networking with ifup -a and ifdown -a respectively. See also <dhcp client>, read "man resolv.conf" for DNS. Also ask me about <static route>.
16:46<djc>neoXite, why not just use the network admin gui?
16:47<abrotman>why not learn how it's really done?
16:47<djc>presumably you want it to set itself each time you boot, as opposed to having to manuall set it

17:09<tcsetattr>his idea is that he doesn't want the server to have access to its root filesystem (where /etc/ would be) until it gets a key from some remote person. sounds weird but SHOULD take us away from the "just use /etc/network/interfaces" kneejerk response.

17:10<neoXite>tcsetattr, i might do that. i had another setup that did use ifconfig, however lenny somehow broke it. it worked fine on etch, and in lenny it gives me 'can't access tty; job control turned off' instead

17:57<dpkg>rumour has it, xdm is the X windows login screen you might see every time you boot up. If you don't like it and want to just boot into console mode, you can read /usr/doc/xfree86-common/FAQ for a full explanation, or just 'dpkg --purge xdm', or 'apt-get remove xdm' (yes it's safe to remove task-x-*)

18:03-!-sphenxes03 [] has joined #debian
18:03<djc>ml, if one wanted to leave it all installed and just stop gdm from running on boot, how would one do that
18:03<djc>eg, whats the equivalent of fedora's chkconfig
18:04<djc>if you know
18:04<djc>or the cli equivalent of services-admin
18:04<dpkg>services is, like, to view and alter system services, use one or more of <rcconf>, sysvconfig, <sysv-rc-conf>, update-rc.d or ls, ln and rm in /etc/rc?.d/, or /etc/services a port numbers list, or
18:04<dpkg>hmm... rcconf is a frontend to update-rc.d, or check out <sysv-rc-conf> - see these and and ask me about <services> ...and if it's broken, try this: for a in $(ls /etc/rc?.d/???jabber) ; do rm $a ; done
18:05<ml>djc: purgeing gdm
18:05<djc>ml I'm sure theres a way to just tell gdm not to start while leaving it installed

"update-rc.d -f xdm remove" and friends will also disable the dm until a package update is installed and the runlevel symlinks are restored.

19:07<djc>mimiloon, when you start vmware, add 'ossdsp ' at the beginning of the command
19:07<djc>but, instead of using vmware, you might want to use a different program, called 'VirtualBox' to run windows
19:07<mimiloon>djc: i'll try VirtualBox later on
19:08<mimiloon>maybe sometime tonight
19:08<djc>you can install that from debian's aptitude or synaptic package manager
19:09<mimiloon>thanx for the info, i'll try all the suggestions you've given me
19:09<ludwig>djc, I will have a look on what controller the host has.
19:09<djc>I wish I could change xchat to use unix keybindings instead of windows
19:09<djc>Control-W is *NOT* 'close tab/window'
19:09<djc>it should be 'delete last word on line'
19:09<ludwig>djc, me too
19:09<SeLEct>is there no way to just "upgrade" 1 app/package
19:09<abrotman>which package
19:10-!-oskie_ [] has joined #debian
19:10<SeLEct>lets say postfix
19:10<djc>SeLEct, sure there is.. but if it depends on other packages, it may need to upgrade those too
19:10<ludwig>djc, at least Ctrl+A, Ctrl+K and Ctrl+E should jump to the beginning of the line, delete to the end of the line and jump to the end of the line respectively
19:10<abrotman>let's say the actual package you want
19:10<djc>ludwig, EXACTLY!
19:10<dpkg>First: See if the package has already been backported. Ask me about <backports>. If it hasn't, 1) Add ONLY a "deb-src ..." line for sid to your sources.list. 2) apt-get update 3) apt-get install build-essential; apt-get build-dep packagename;apt-get -b source packagename; 4) install the resultant debs. If you are just wanting to change the compilation options, ask me about <package recompile>, or see <uupdate> if sid is too old
19:10<ludwig>djc, even if I prefer using VIM than Emacs, but this is one other story ... ;)
19:11<djc>abrotman, i dont think that info is relevant
19:11<djc>SeLEct, you can just use apt-get (or aptitude, or synaptic) to tell that packatge to update.. but if it depends on other packlages, those may need to be updated too
19:11<abrotman>djc: yes it is

19:12<abrotman>x11-common is not X
19:13<abrotman>SeLEct: because then you're responsible for all aspects of that software .. including security
19:13<SeLEct>what about gnome-desktop-data? im sure postfix dosnt need that one
19:13<abrotman>if the newer software doesn't get you a feature you need, why upgrade
19:13<abrotman>SeLEct: something else is going on .. paste all the output in a pastebin
19:13<djc>SeLEct, ther eis probably some utility that it includes that has a GUI..let it install it, that doesnt mean you have to use X
19:13<abrotman>SeLEct: and the output of `apt-cache policy`

19:39<djc>to be honest, I have only CD1, and rely on the net for anything else
19:39<meoblast001>djc: but we need just the basics to start out
19:39<djc>unless you have a really flaky net connection
19:39<meoblast001>djc: my internet connection isn't the greatest but it works :P
19:39<djc>you should be find with either just CD1 or DVD1
19:39<meoblast001>oops.. i just remembered
19:39<djc>obviously you'll have to download that initially ;)
19:39<meoblast001>this thing has a broken CD drive
19:39<meoblast001>looks like i'm going USB :/

19:40<e7th04sh>how do i restart apache?
19:40<djc>but if you can get one, i'd suggest trying to find a usb cdrom drive ;)
19:41<themill>e7th04sh: invoke-rc.d apache2 restart
19:41<djc>e7th04sh, /etc/init.d/apache restart?
19:41<e7th04sh>themill worked thx, djc thx
19:41<meoblast001>djc: i could use Ubuntu's method.. since this laptop has ran Ubuntu for the past year and a half and i know where the guide is :P
19:42<meoblast001>djc: should be similar for Debian
19:42<djc>I use apachectl on fbsc box

21:32<djc>its automatic
21:32<djc>oh duh i misread the question anyway

21:33<ghee>don't know, usb wasn't working in a doze guest in vbox, and i found instructions for setting usb

22:32<gsimmons>itachi: The AR242x (168C:001C) is supported by both the kernel-supplied ath5k driver and non-free Madwifi driver. If you've installed Madwifi using the Debian packages, your interface is ath0, not wlan0, due to the blacklisting of the ath5k driver.

22:48<djc>you dont want to go installing alsa drivers from source
22:49<devries>drivers show up with lspci |grep snd but 'mplayer path/to/afile.mp3' is silent, with some errors
22:49<djc>pastebin an lsmod | grep snd
22:49<djc>lspci doesnt show drivers
22:49<devries>k one moment
22:49<abrotman>devries: what are the errors?
22:49<djc>it only shows what hardware is on your pci bus
22:49<devries>true :) sorry lsmod shows the drivers; I'll put that in the pastebin also
22:50<djc>and given your machine has the same exact sound hardware as my laptop on which sound just worked without my having to do anything after installing lenny has my head scratching
22:50<djc>dumb question - did you check the mixer/volume controls?
22:50<abrotman>do other sounds work?

22:53<djc>try that mplayer command as root
22:53<devries>but that shouln't be needed normally, would it be?
22:53<djc>i wouldnt think.. but do that to test for now
22:54<devries>:) that does give some sound
22:54<djc>if it works as root, then we knows your drivers are working, and just need to sort out permissions
22:54<abrotman>are you in the audio group

22:57<djc>from what he said earlier, your card should work with the driver in the kernel.. skip all the madwifi stuff
