01:52<goodger>but you should not log in as root in a graphical system
01:52<goodger>yes, you can change permissions using root terminal
01:52<bhagya>thank god
01:53<goodger>thank you, but I'll decline

02:23<beer>and why is x server in sid not been updated to 1.5 or 1.6 yet?
02:25<goodger>beer: the current version number of xserver-xorg in sid is 1:7.3+18
02:25<fxiny>goodger: there is a "pseudo DSA" : -> From: Moritz Muehlenhoff -> Subject: [SECURITY] [DSA 1753-1] End-of-life announcement for Iceweasel in oldstable . snip :"On a side note, please note that the Debian stable/Lenny version of Iceweasel - the unbranded version of the Firefox browser - links dynamically against the Xulrunner library. As such, most of the vulnerabilities found in Fire
02:26<wzssyqa>i ever think that sid is newest
02:26<goodger>fxiny: thanks. probably best tell wzssyqa instead
02:26<fxiny>goodger: yes :)
02:26<fxiny>wzssyqa: ^^^
02:30<beer>goodger: xserver-xorg-core is still 1.4.2
02:30-!-Danny [] has joined #debian
02:30<goodger>beer: is that a problem?
02:31<goodger>beer: as you could see if you looked at for yourself, 1.5 is currently in experimental, so presumably it is not ready for general use yet
02:31<beer>yes becouse there have been som opimaztion in 1.5 for kde 4
02:33<Danny>Anyone know any good guides to setup a working mail server that'll can send and receive mail?
02:35<Woet>How would I update my machine to use SSL 3.0 rather than 2.0?
02:36<Danny>What debian version are you on?
02:38<franklin>Woet: AFAIK, that's negotiated between client and server. Please clarify what "machine" is? (which software, and version, on both sides)
02:38<Woet>franklin: Running a my web security tool, it says the server is outdated and uses SSL 2.0 rather than SSL 3.0
02:38<Woet>which is a security isk
02:38<Woet>+ r
02:39-!-maga [~maga@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
02:39<Danny>Woet: Did you do apt-get update and apt-get upgrade?
02:39<Woet>Danny: Yes.
02:39<Woet>everything from apache is up to date
02:40<Woet>everything on the entire machine is up to date actually
02:40<Woet>'The remote service encrypts traffic using an old deprecated protocol with known weaknesses. '
02:40<Woet>How to fix this vulnerability: 'Disable SSL 2.0 and use SSL 3.0 or TLS 1.0 instead.'
02:40<Danny>Backup your apache2 configs and such then try
02:40<Danny>apt-get purge apache2 && apt-get install apache2
02:40<Danny>that'll remove everything
02:40<Danny>and then reinstall
02:40<fxiny>what security tool is that ?
02:41<Woet>fxiny: Web Vulnerability Scanner
02:41<Woet>from Acunetix
02:41<Woet>Danny: I already got something interesting when searching for 'apache2 disable "SSL 2.0"', rather than 'apache2 update SSL' which I searched for earlier :p
02:41<Danny>Woet: weird :p
02:44<franklin>Danny: SSL2,3 and TLS1 are available and negotiated by default, see
02:44-!-wzssyqa [~syq@] has left #debian []
02:44<Danny>I personally don't use apache.
02:44<franklin>Danny: consider "SSLProtocol all -SSLv2"
02:44<Danny>Lighttpd for me :)
02:45<Danny>And Woet is having the security flaw problem.
02:45<Woet>franklin: Yea, I'm trying that right now
02:46<franklin>Danny: sorry for the mistake.

03:46<gsimmons>powerpc: Not that I'm aware. NDISwrapper is x86/x86-64 only.
03:47<powerpc>or better yet, does anyone know if there's any solution to using a SiS163 chipset wifi stick w/ a powerpc architecture?

04:07<bhagya>I have created only one user account at the time of installation
04:07<clodde>Nemoder: yes, it locked up at 9:41:44 if you meant to say that, it doesn't seem to log anything else but ssh is still working

04:23<sunset46>can anyone help me get my HP printer going using Ubuntu?
04:24<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>.

04:48<ZeroCide>does anyone know if the latest kernel for debian amd64 is 2.6.26-1-amd64?
04:49<ZeroCide>it would be for deb5
04:49<Nemoder>ZeroCide: in Lenny, yes
04:49<ZeroCide>oh ok
04:49<viashin>Well, it is not a technical question, i never used debian or even another linux distr. my question aims at the marvell sheevaplug. does anyone know when possibly a debian installer is out for this cute machine?
04:49<ZeroCide>i was going to compile the latest one from
04:49<ZeroCide>but i guess i can recompile this one
04:50<ZeroCide>do you know where i can obtain the source for it Nemoder? so i can make adjustments to the current kernel for tweaking the sys_tic and hz_user
04:50<ZeroCide>that and if you know any links to tutorials on how to rebuild the deb5 lenny kernel would be great as this will be my first rebuild of a debian kernel
04:50<Nemoder>ZeroCide: I've never had a problem using the latest from
04:50<ZeroCide>im used to re-building centos / fedora kernerls
04:50-!-Bearman [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
04:51<ZeroCide>well Nemoder do you use vuurmuur firewall
04:51<Nemoder>ZeroCide: but you can apt-get source linux-image-2.6.26-1-amd64
04:51<ZeroCide>ok yeah
04:51<Nemoder>no, I don't
04:51<ZeroCide>cause i couldnt find the uh, 2.6.29 w/e amd64
04:51<ZeroCide>kernel source
04:52<Nemoder>it's all the same source on
04:52<ZeroCide>so i guess it would of failed anyways trying to compile/build then use a 32bit kernel on a 64bit install
04:52<ZeroCide>oh ok
04:52<ZeroCide>so it wouldnt matter then?
04:52<Nemoder>when you configure the kernel you set what arch to build it for
04:53<ZeroCide>you know any good sites with walkthroughs for rebuilding the deb kernel or is it basically the same as centos?
04:53<dpkg>To compile a kernel The Debian Way(tm) "apt-get install kernel-package build-essential libncurses5-dev" and follow the instructions in /usr/share/doc/kernel-package/README.gz; You should also ask me about <make-kpkg> and <kp mantra>, or just, or <kernel build-deps>
04:54<bevan>when using gnome desktop, how can I put applications in the startup?

04:59<Nemoder>yes, those are tools to help build a .deb file from kernel source, much easier to manage than just a raw kernel image

08:16<jaycee>do i have to it once more with synaptic (sceptical to peeform from terminal)?????? I am sorry, I am a noob. are you referring to the driver (firmware)???
08:16<nazcafan>jaycee, no
08:16<jaycee>gie me more hints pls...I know Windows term....
08:16<nazcafan>a firmware is a bunch of code that is run by the device itself
08:17<nazcafan>jaycee, the device needs a firmware in order to run
08:17<jaycee> is rt73usb (???)
08:18<jaycee>i have installed ralink (inludes rt73usb) thru synaptic....
08:18<nazcafan>jaycee, as gsimmons told you all the firmwares for ralink chipsets are provided through a package
08:18<nazcafan>jaycee, can you be more specific about the package you installed?
08:19<nazcafan>ralink is not a package name
08:19<nazcafan>the package you should have installed now is called "firmware-ralink"
08:20<jaycee>I will go to retrieve the package names I installed, give me a second....
08:20<nazcafan>jayce : just search "firmware-ralink" in synaptic and check whether it is installed (green square), or not
08:21-!-yes [] has joined #debian
08:21-!-yes [] has quit []
08:22<nazcafan>jaycee, if you _really_ want to be sure, the firmware files are installed by the package in the folder /lib/firmware
08:22-!-FairyCosmo [] has joined #debian
08:22<nazcafan>so you can just open a terminal and "ls /lib/firmware" and check whether rt73.bin or something like it is available

09:36-!-prahal [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
09:36<newbie123>ok got it
09:36<djc>the main uses of tftp are netbooting (which only involves GETting files via tftp), upgrading the firmware in embedded devices (again, only reading), or occasionally saving config files (which could require writing)
09:36<djc>tftp isnt really a general purpose mechanism for transferring files
09:37<dpkg>[tftp] the Trivial File Transer Protocol, an insecure file transfer protocol without authentication designed to transfer trivial files to diskless clients. To establish a TFTP server on Etch, "aptitude install tftpd-hpa && invoke-rc.d openbsd-inetd restart", place content to be served in /var/lib/tftpboot
09:37<newbie123>yes i am using it for a wireless controller which supports transferrring files to server via scp tftp etc i was just trying tftp as we have no security concerns is just a lab
09:38<djc>if its supports scp that would be simpler to setup

10:00<newbie123>sure would try scp now
10:00<djc>if the device runs an sshd, then use scp to copy files from it
10:01<djc>if it doesnt, but it can send files using scp, make sure you have ssh running and then tell the device to scp to copy its files to the machine running sshd

10:41<gsimmons>djc: No.
10:41<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.

10:45<djc>jaycee, it was already installed, or you just installed it?
10:45<gsimmons>jaycee: Stop the network-manager daemon (invoke-rc.d network-manager stop), then configure /etc/network/interfaces to include your wlan0 interface, configured appropriately for your wireless network. See for an example. After saving the file, raise the interface (ifup -v wlan0) and test.
10:45<djc>if you just added it, it might be worth trying from NetworkManager again

10:50<el-loco>djc, I've solved my issue some day ago plugging one NIC at time, in this way the device added again correctly, but thereis not any fusther way? Maybe delete the rules file and recreate it from the beginning?
10:50<cr3>it is not working correctly

11:02<cr3>if think this explains what its about
11:02<djc>I see.. Are you using Ubuntu?
11:02<cr3>no, debian
11:02<djc>I've never used Ubuntu, so can make no comparison as to what it does
11:02<EmleyMoor>I have lost control of polling on one of my DVD drives - is there anything I can restart that might help? I can use the drive.
11:03<djc>And my mouse seems to work just fine in Debian
11:03<djc>Or indeed, in any dist of linux I've used
11:03<djc>EmleyMoor, what do you mean by 'polling' of the drive?
11:03<djc>you mean it doesnt automount?
11:04<EmleyMoor>It doesn't auto-do... e.g. ask what you want when you insert a blank...
11:05<djc>Oh.. Mine doesnt do that either, and I seem to remember specifically telling it not to, becuase I hate that behaviour.. let me see if I can remember where I set that
11:05<djc>Are you using Gnome?
11:05<EmleyMoor>The problem is, I am unable to either enable (as per normal) or disable (as needed when verifying discs with it) it
11:06<djc>Have you already tried checking the settings under preferences/removable media?
11:06<EmleyMoor>Yes - nothing amiss there...
11:07<EmleyMoor>I disabled it with hal-disable-polling but can't re-enable it. It can be done for my read-only drive though
11:07<djc>is gnome-volume-manager running?
11:07-!-candrews [] has joined #debian
11:08<cr3>i have my theory that explains why so few people even notice that... basically if u play games on pc you won't really switch to linux, you can only try it, or (like me) dual boot with windows to learn linux (if u have your reasons...), and if u intensely play, mouse sensitivity differences are huge factor in fps games.... so basially 1. few 'gamers' use linux (or they dont bother about this) 2. people who call 'snake' , 'kasteroids' a 'game' don't really

12:51<mantra>no i think my browser is configured not to use ipv6

12:58<djc>you directly ran the secondlife binary

12:58<djc>what site
12:59<squelos> here, but its french
12:59<djc>Trumpetr, it should.. you may need to get non-free firmware depending on what it is.
12:59<djc>i wouldnt recommend installing with only wireless connectibity
12:59<Trumpetr>out of the box I mean.
12:59<djc>unless that connectivity is with something that connects wirelessly and gives you ethernet

13:00<Trumpetr>wireless access point.

13:05<djc>I have that adapter in my laptop, but the primary connection is wired
13:05<djc>so, I may have had to get stuff off the net for it to work, i dont remember

13:22<peterius>but it happened on another debian system that was setup at a different time, same stuff
13:22<djc>'stable' is a moving target
13:22<djc>the current stable is lenny
13:22<peterius>I did the APT force option and it so screwed things up that I just installed netbsd from scratch, but I can't do that on this system

13:22<fxiny>peterius: follow the correct procedure : read the topic
13:22<peterius>yeah it is several releases old

13:28<peterius>is there anyway to fix a system once its broken like this?
13:28<djc>You also don't seem to grok the different between 'free' and 'Free'
13:29<peterius>bullshit, I've read all that stallman crap, I just want a working computer
13:29<azeem>peterius: probably not
13:29<djc>then go pay your MS tax and quit whining at people who are willing to be responsible for their own computers
13:29<azeem>but I didn't see what errors you posted

15:14<djc>copy the files on it somewhere else temporaroly

15:18-!-superbob [~chatzilla@] has joined #debian
15:18<LostPlanet>so you have enough free space on a non-ntfs partition to copy all the data from teh ntfs partition and then reformat the ntfs partition ?
15:18<pawel>I am fillowing this ptocedure, but when 'aptitude update', then 'please add etch sources to your /etc/apt/sources.list and run:
15:18<pawel> apt-get install -t etch linux-image-2.6'
15:18<ben_>why is the linux filesystem better?
15:19<djc>no reason to use ntfs (or even vfat)_ with linux except on a filesystem you plan to also access from windows
15:19<fxiny>pawel: is easy and logic , you change yout soruces form etch to lenny then run aptitude update , now isntall the new aptitude : aptitude install aptitude , now upgrade : aptitude safe-upgrade or aptitude full-upgrade
15:19<LostPlanet>ben: for one thing permissions will not work like you expect if you continue with vfat or ntfs partition
15:20<LostPlanet>ben: i dont konw that one is better (some may argue that) but if you are going to work with linux you shold use a file system that is designed for linux
15:20<pawel>fxiny: look at this: 'Ensure your Etch installation is up to date (aptitude update; aptitude dist-upgrade).' my Etch is not up to date
15:20<djc>to be honest, if you have a windows system installed, i would first take that 60G drive, make it vfat, then from windows copy and and all import files to it
15:20-!-nike [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]

15:20<djc>then, start over and install linux on the first drive

15:20<djc>then mount the 60G as vfat and copy files from it into linux
15:21<LostPlanet>ben: what djc said is also true. if you want to access a file system from outside of linux you will want to keep the vfat or ntfs partition and use it as a "transfer" partition
15:21<djc>then take your two extra drives and either mount them somewhere.. or .sell them.. or something
15:21<fxiny>pawel: forget etch , edit your sources list first : change any etch you read to lenny
15:21<djc>"copy and and all important files..." i meant
15:21<fxiny>pawel: then run : aptitude update
15:21<pawel>there is not any 'etch'
15:22<djc>fxiny, he should be fully updated in etch before upgrading to lenny
15:22<fxiny>pawel: now you have an old aptitude so install the new lenny powerful aptitude first and tell it to upgrade

15:23<djc>LostPlanet, yerconfusing ben and pawel

15:23<LostPlanet>trumpetr: yes
15:23<djc>pawel is trying to upgrade (something) to etch and/or lenny
15:24<Trumpetr>do I extract the .iso to the USB ?
15:24<Trumpetr>or is there a seperate process.
15:24<djc>Trumpetr, if you have a cd burner, using that is simpler
15:24<LostPlanet>djc: yes i know. i was telling ben about the package which lets him read/write his ntfs partition
15:24<fxiny>pawel: from etch ? so try to understand the logic : aptitude has improved so much it can upgrade without pain : you want the new aptitude first
15:24<Trumpetr>I have a CD burner, but no disk. guess I could do for a midnight run :)
15:24<djc>LostPlanet, he said he never plans on using windows again.. so its kinda pointless to keep an ntfs partition permanently
15:24<pawel>my sources/

15:46<djc>linux doesnt have 'drive letters' like windows.

15:46<djc>all partitions are part of the main filesystem
15:46<Trumpetr>O_o just did rm -rf / as root.

15:49<ben_>now what do i do with an um mounted partition
15:49<LostPlanet>you mean the ntfs one that you want to convert to something else ?
15:49<LostPlanet>you use a tool to re-format it first
15:50<LostPlanet>i suggest gparted if you are using a GUI
15:50<ben_>1 sec
15:50-!-fregl [] has joined #debian
15:50<ben_>it's formatting as ext3
15:51<LostPlanet>if its next to another partiion you already use you might be able to extend that partition instead
15:51<LostPlanet>by first deleteing the partition so its "empty space" and then expanding the one next to it
15:51<LostPlanet>i can't remmber you drive setup

15:53<LostPlanet>so its just the free program

15:53<LostPlanet>ben: what did you do ? delete it or is it now formatted as something ?
15:54<ben_>i know this sounds annoying but what do i do with the newly formatted hdd
15:54<superbob>erm what do you mean?
15:54<superbob>copy things on to it
15:54<ben_>it's formatted as ext3
15:54<LostPlanet>well now you can have it auto-mounted if you want by adding a line in your /etc/fstab file
15:54<LostPlanet>or you can manually mount / unmount it

15:57<ben_>yes it is

15:59<LostPlanet>also from the gnome desktop you may be able to go the "filesystem" and see it there . just double click on it and you can access it

16:00<LostPlanet>maxb: where shoudl we put it ?
16:00-!-bil [] has quit []
16:01<maxb>I'd put it on /mnt/something
16:01<LostPlanet>ben: so instead of /media/stuff use /mnt/stuff
16:02<LostPlanet>ben: in your fstab file that is
16:02<LostPlanet>ben: the tricky part will be working out the permissions so you can access it like you want with a non-root user
16:02<LostPlanet>ben: if it were me i'd play around with it
16:02<maxb>Not really tricky, you just get it mounted and then chown it
16:03<LostPlanet>maxb: but what about after a reset ?
16:03<ben_>what does chown mean
16:03<LostPlanet>change ownership
16:03<LostPlanet>its a command

16:04<LostPlanet>control + alt + backspace ?
16:04<LostPlanet>that restarts it i think

16:04<LostPlanet>actually after updating your x11.conf file i think a ctrl + alt +backspace will work
16:04<LostPlanet>it'll reload stuff
16:04<maxb>you may just want to log out and let your DM relaunch X
16:04<LostPlanet>but make sure you close stuff down
16:05<superbob>cool thanks for that
16:05-!-squelos [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
16:05<maxb>< LostPlanet> then you add a line like : /dev/hdd1 /media/stuff auto defaults 0 0
16:05<maxb>^ does 'auto' really work as a fstype ?
16:05-!-hever [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
16:05<LostPlanet>i think so
16:05<LostPlanet>if not then put the actual fs in there
16:06<maxb>All of my drives say 'ext3'
16:06<LostPlanet>ben: you may need to chagne auto to something like ext3
16:06<LostPlanet>ben: you can test the fstab file by typing "mount /mnt/stuff" at command line
16:06<LostPlanet>bne: it should use the configuration in the fstab file
16:06<LostPlanet>bne: if it works, your good
16:06<maxb>The last number should be 2, having 0 there disables fscking
16:06<LostPlanet>i've always used 0 in all my systems
16:07<LostPlanet>fscking might be still done by other programs on a regualr basis ?
16:07<superbob>Another question for you, if you have two physical drives in a system with two seperate Linux OS's on each, why can't open mount the others drive without it FUBAR'ing
16:07<LostPlanet>ben: fscking is refering to a file system check with the fsck program ( i think its fsck)
16:08<maxb>"FileSystem ChecK"
16:08<LostPlanet>bob: i would think you would have no probelm mounting one FS from the other ?

16:14<LostPlanet>the -R is for recursive changes if you already have anything in there

16:54<djc>benvdh, how often/much software have you added to this server over time?
16:54-!-beber [] has joined #debian
16:54<djc>if not much, you could try following the etch -> lenny upgrade procedure, and then change 'testing' to 'lenny' in sources
16:55<djc>then you might be cleanly running lenny, which is current stable
16:55*LostPlanet bows to djc's superior helping skills
16:56-!-beber [] has quit []
16:56<benvdh>djc: We have added a few software packages since the install, but it was mostly a lot of custom configuring we did
16:56<djc>then you could try that
16:56<djc>!etch -> lenny
16:56<djc>dpkg, wake up
16:56<dpkg>djc: I'm already awake! :)
16:56<djc>dpkg, etch->lenny
16:56<dpkg>Read the release notes, ask me about <lenny release notes>. Ensure your Etch installation is up to date (aptitude update; aptitude dist-upgrade). Edit your /etc/apt/sources.list and change all non-local mentions of "etch" or "stable" to "lenny". aptitude update; aptitude install aptitude; aptitude safe-upgrade; aptitude full-upgrade. Also ask about <apt-listbugs>, <etch->lenny key>.
16:56<djc>dont do that update with 'testing' in the sources.list tho
16:57*LostPlanet laughs at the dpkg. that thing is awesome
16:57<benvdh>djc: so this procedure makes sure that all the etch packages that would still be on there will be upgraded to lenny, right ?

16:58<djc>oh boy

16:59<djc>you are prolly gonna need someone with more debian guruness than I

16:59<djc>azeem, awake?
16:59<djc>you dont want to upgrade to 'testing', or even to 'stable'.
16:59<djc>you want a fixed release name in there
16:59<djc>eg etch, or lenny
17:00<djc>then, when a new release is out, if you decide you want to upgrade, then you follow the procedure for cleanly updating (read the release notes for the new release)
17:00<djc>then change the sources to that release name

17:01<benvdh>the cd repositories are commented out btw. Basically the way the server was upgraded to testing is the following. First we installed it, then we decided to upgrade to testing, so we replaced all the stables with testing in sources.list
17:01-!-Worf_ [] has joined #debian
17:02<djc>1. you dont want to run 'testing' on any production machine
17:02<djc>2. tags like 'stable', and 'testing' are moving targets, you dont want to use either in your sources.list
17:02<djc>instead ues the specific release name that you have or installed or upgraded(ing) to
17:02<benvdh>ok, as I can hear, we still have to learn a lot
17:02<LostPlanet>i didn't even know you could use "stable" as a tag in the sources.list
17:03<LostPlanet>i thought it had to be a release name or testing
17:03<djc>they are just symlinks on the repo servers
17:03<LostPlanet>yea. seems like if you have 'stable' in there and the repo's change from etch to lenny and "update" might not be good
17:03<djc>but the met ones like 'stable', 'testing', 'unstable', move as new releases are made
17:03<djc>you dont want to have it suddenly change under you
17:03<djc>thats the entire point
17:04<djc>I am trying to make
17:04<djc>!tell me about enter
17:04<djc>(figured id save someone the time)
17:04<LostPlanet>its a standard key on the keyboard
17:04<djc>!tell LostPlanet about enter
17:04<LostPlanet>thanks for the tip...
17:05<benvdh>basically the reason for why we have chosen testing was because of the more up to date packages
17:06<djc>benvdh, my point is, you dont want to use the meta-names like 'stable', or 'testing',
17:06<djc>you want to use the specific codename for which release you are pointing at
17:06<LostPlanet>unless your willing to accept the risk and this a non-production / critical system
17:06<djc>up until a month ago, testing pointed at lenny
17:06<djc>now it points at.. i think its called sqeeze
17:06-!-copernic [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
17:07<djc>if you had etch, and wanted to update to lenny
17:07<djc>you should have put 'lenny'.. not testing
17:07<benvdh>I know, I wasn't trying to discredit your point,
17:07<djc>and there is more than just doing apt-get upgrade
17:07<djc>you need to read the release notes
17:07<djc>you probably cant break it any more than it already is reinstalling cups now tho
17:07<djc>so if thats the only problem you might as well go ahead
17:07<chealer>djc: seriously, please avoid unnecessarily cutting your messages.
17:08<djc>chealer, seriously, my fingers are cold, Im sorry
17:08<LostPlanet>they seem like concise statements to me, i guess if you pause for a second at the end of each one it gives you time to think about what to say next. well i gotta go. later all.
17:10<benvdh>djc: I still have another question left, since I already learned a lot from you about upgrading, what's the best way to get a more recent version of a specific package (or a few packages) without breaking the complete system ?
17:10<dpkg>rumour has it, backport is a package from a newer Debian branch, compiled from source for an older branch to avoid dependency and ABI complications., Ask me about <simple sid backport> and <backport caveat>, <>

17:10<benvdh>ok, thanks
17:11<benvdh>I'll discuss it tomorrow at the IT committee meeting
17:12<djc>note that lenny is the current 'stable'. and should have new enough packages for anything you are doing on a reasonable modern machine
17:12<djc>but again, if you want to use that, use 'lenny', not 'stable'
17:13<petern>mmm, i can't remember when i last installed debian and it put in 'stable' by default
17:13<petern>must've been a while ago
17:14<djc>he installed from etch.. so presumable it said 'etch' originally and they changed it to testing

17:30<petern>yes i know
17:31<erebus_dark>Can anyone think of a reason why I can't use my USB keyboard at startup? I can't even get into my bios setup screen via the delete key.
17:31<djc>if you have different software that reports different names, its using different data for its lookup
17:31<petern>i asked the wrong question, it's alsa rather than the usb subsystem :)
17:31-!-benvdh [] has quit [Quit: ajax IRC Client]
17:31<djc>erebus_dark, your pc bios doesnt support usb keyboards?
17:31<simonrvn>erebus_dark: plug in a ps/2 turn on your usb ;).
17:31<EmleyMoor>philsf: In the epson and epson2 backends for sane, it's a GT-9300... in epkowa it's a Perfection 2400
17:31<erebus_dark>I just installed Lenny and this issue started. I have always been able to use my USB keyboard

17:32<djc>well, each backed uses different names
17:32<djc>pick one backend that works, stick with it
17:33<EmleyMoor>epkowa is the most reliable
17:33<djc>also, if one of them is correct and the other isnt, id suggest prefering the one thats correct
17:33<djc>what is the device, actually?
17:33<erebus_dark>simonrvn, any other suggestions why my keyboard all of a sudden doesn't work
17:33<EmleyMoor>All three are technically correct
17:34<EmleyMoor>Xoth names are right
17:34-!-lolo___ [] has joined #debian
17:34<djc>what name is monogrammed on the actual scanner
17:34<djc>"GT 9300" or "Perfection 2400" ?
17:35<EmleyMoor>Perfection 2400
17:35<simonrvn>erebus_dark: the debian kernels scan your usb bus for connected hid devices and modprobe the relevant modules if needed. you said you couldn't even type del to enter your BIOS, therefore your BIOS needs to have the USB turned on. it's not "another suggestion" sorta of thing.
17:35<EmleyMoor>GT-9300 is thought to be the Japanese name
17:36-!-erebus_dark [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
17:36<djc>erebus_dark, if your keyboard doesnt work at the bios screen, then it either dosnt support usb keyboards or has that option turned off.. period

21:06<Sidicas>You get music to play out your mobo speaker?

21:08<Sidicas>That is awesome
21:08<Kagee>Is it so that if i download a stable netinst-image, i can still choose to install unstable?
21:08<abrotman>Kagee: you can get to usntable from stable, yes
21:08<lskfjlsdk>it's not awesome. its just a faint voice/notes
21:09<abrotman>did you plug the speakers into the onboard sound jacks?
21:09<kenyon>lskfjlsdk: maybe connect speakers to the audio out jack?
21:09<Kagee>abrotman: do i first have to install stable first, and the upgrade, or can i install unstable right away?
21:09<lskfjlsdk>which color is audio out?
21:09<lskfjlsdk>i have red and purple plugged
21:09<lskfjlsdk>just a sec

21:17<jrabbit>it's not in the repos?
21:17<dpkg>BitchX is an old and unmaintained IRC client built on epic and ircII. As a Debian package, screwed up and not falling back to IPv4 when IPv6 ain't possible. It's not as good as <irssi> and needs less moronic /quit messages. If you are an irssi user who is annoyed by said /quit messages, ask me about <literal bitchxignore>. Abandoned by upstream, removed from Debian to resolve bug #451373.
