00:20<eljefe>My X is behaving badly, and I don't know why. Kaffeine says it cannot find the 'xv' driver, and my dual-core Pentium D works too hard when trying to play video. Can anyone help me?
00:20-!-T_X_ is now known as T_X
00:21-!-knoppix_ [~knoppix@] has joined #debian
00:21-!-knoppix_ is now known as Guest1262
00:21<Fohn>do you have a proprietary vidcard driver installed?
00:22-!-pab [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
00:22-!-Guest1262 [~knoppix@] has quit []
00:22<eljefe>no, i have an ati card but i don't think its using that driver
00:22<eljefe>the overall performance seems pretty low
00:22<Fohn>I would recommend it
00:23<eljefe>yeah but even without it the computer used to do much better. i am waiting for radeonhd driver to do 3d, the ati driver constantly fails me
00:24<Fohn>dpkg-reconfigure xerver-xorg
00:24<eljefe>doesn't work on my sid system
00:24<Fohn>I really cannot be much help as I am a linux newbie
00:25<eljefe>which is bogus, it was the most useful command ever for these issues...
00:25<eljefe>oh well Fohn thanks for the assistance :)
00:25<Fohn>hah, actually for me it didn't fix the problem I ahd
00:25-!-Caldavien_ [] has quit [Quit: Ex-Chat]
00:25<eljefe>ah what is that?
00:25<Fohn>which was actually a monitor resolution issue
00:25-!-angasule [~angasule@] has quit [Quit: Konversation terminated!]
00:25<Fohn>it didn't recognize my monitor's specs so I had to manually enter its refreshrates into xorg.conf
00:26<eljefe>thats frustrating
00:26-!-m4v3r1c [] has joined #debian
00:26<Fohn>which, for some still unknown reason, makes it so that my login screen is blank.
00:26<eljefe>which login manager? kdm? gdm?
00:27<Fohn>but, to complicate the issue, I think if I disable my ATI proprietary driver then the login screen displays :/
00:27<eljefe>yeah man i am telling you, ati drivers are painful
00:27-!-Garda [~Garda@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:27<eljefe>i've had this card over a year, waiting on the radeonhd free drivers to support it :) and i've got ati working once
00:28-!-m4v3r1c [] has quit []
00:28<Fohn>what chipset's your card?
00:28<eljefe>dunno... its a Radeon 3450
00:28<eljefe>the radeonhd driver page calls it a r600 i think
00:28<Fohn>that is the correct answer
00:28<Fohn>the first one
00:28<Fohn>I have a 4670
00:29-!-mode/#debian [+l 390] by debhelper
00:29<Fohn>I would try to fix my problem but I honestly don't care about a blank login screen
00:29-!-arthurfurlan [~arthurfur@] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
00:29<Fohn>especially since it makes a noise when I can start typing and a noise when login is successful
00:29<Fohn>and it keeps the parents off the computer :D
00:31-!-bertodsera [~chatzilla@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:32<Fohn>what's your xorg.conf say under Section "Device"?

00:34-!-freealan [] has joined #debian

00:38-!-ilja is now known as ilja_near
00:38<Fohn>what with?
00:38<Desert_Storm>Command "make"
00:38-!-viko [~viko@] has quit []
00:39<Desert_Storm>It always says the error "/lib/modules/2.6.26-2-amd64/build: No such file or directory. Stop."
00:39<Fohn>does it say you don't have that command?
00:39<Desert_Storm>It starts to make, but them, that comes up
00:39<Desert_Storm>and I've installed linux-headers-2.6.26-amd64
00:39<eljefe>Fohn I am running without an xorg.conf file
00:40<Fohn>is that what you are trying to make?
00:40-!-oxmoz`` [] has joined #debian
00:40<Fohn>I have no clue then bossman
00:40-!-oxmoz` [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
00:40<eljefe>Desert_Storm: that was going to be my suggestion, install the headers
00:40<Desert_Storm>Fohn, nop, trying to
00:40<Desert_Storm>'make' wireless drivers
00:40<Desert_Storm>eljefe, woops,there seems to be other headers toohere
00:41<eljefe>Desert_Storm: which wireless drivers?
00:41-!-famelix [] has joined #debian
00:41<eljefe>can you do it with module-assist? 'm-a a-i _drivername_'
00:41-!-famelix [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:41<Fohn>I honestly have no clue :D
00:42<eljefe>aiighty i gotta go to bed
00:42<eljefe>have a good one guys
00:42<eljefe>Desert_Storm: look into m-a
00:42<Desert_Storm>Thanks, good night :P
00:42<eljefe>screw it
00:42<eljefe>lets get it working
00:42<eljefe>which drivers?
00:43<eljefe>Desert_Storm: as root: aptitude install module-assistant
00:43<eljefe>then as root: m-a prepare
00:43<eljefe>that will get the needed headers etc perfectly
00:44<eljefe>then m-a a-i _driver_ (or do it the longer way, module-assistant auto-install _driver_ )
00:44<Fohn>...what are headers? :D
00:44<eljefe>Fohn: they're the raw data that a kernel was before it got compiled... kinda like the source, but needed for drivers etc
00:45-!-foka [~foka@] has quit [Read error: Operation timed out]
00:45<eljefe>not the raw data i guess, but info about the kernel
00:45<eljefe>Desert_Storm: once you have it built and installed it should appear in 'lsmod' output
00:46<eljefe>or add it to the system with modprobe _driver_
00:46-!-bertodsera [~chatzilla@] has joined #debian
00:46<Desert_Storm>I have a Atheros 5007
00:46<Desert_Storm>Some say, it should be coming with ath5k
00:46<Desert_Storm>and should work
00:46<Desert_Storm>but, I dont find any networks
00:47<Desert_Storm>eljefe, how can I tell my kernel version?
00:48<locsmif>Desert_Storm, uname -a
00:49-!-NCommander [] has joined #debian
00:49<Desert_Storm>these files are meant for kernel 2.6.27
00:50<eljefe>ah yes i know that dirver :( i think my coworkers laptop needed that kernel to install on debian
00:50<eljefe>i bet they'd work for 2.6.29 if you get that kernel
00:51<eljefe>ok really it is time for sleep
00:53<locsmif>Desert_Storm, what do you mean by "these files"
00:53<Desert_Storm>Well, I tryed to "make"
00:53<Desert_Storm>and said the error, this one is for kernels 2.6.27... etc
00:55<gsimmons>Desert_Storm: compat-wireless is for kernels >= 2.6.27. compat-wireless-old is for kernels <= 2.6.26.
00:55-!-Fohn [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
00:55-!-nimrood [] has joined #debian
00:56<Desert_Storm>gsimmons, where could I get it?
00:56<locsmif>Desert_Storm, are you using module-assistant or make?
00:57<Desert_Storm>I think I should take madwifi drivers
00:58-!-Holborn [] has quit [Quit: Lost terminal]
00:59<locsmif>if you're not experienced compiling kernel modules, you should be using module assistant
00:59<locsmif>you can also run: m-a
00:59<locsmif>you'll get a whole menu-driven interface
00:59<locsmif>you can select the right package from a list.
01:00<locsmif>m-a will do everything for you, getting source, preparing the system, compiling, building a package and installing.
01:00<Desert_Storm>locsmif, wow loool
01:01<streuner_>maybe he dont need to read too...

04:46<omg_onoez>i wish to mount my /home as truecrypt container and so i wonder how can i mount it on boot
04:47<omg_onoez>i think it is not necessary to use fstab (even if it is possible)
04:47<omg_onoez>so, where should i add cmdline
04:47<omg_onoez>so it would be executed on boot
04:47<omg_onoez>sry for my english btw

04:49<jm_>omg_onoez: why don't you want to use fstab?
04:49<jm_>otherwise you can write an init script to do the job
04:49<omg_onoez>because i want to mount it using key file on sd card
04:49<omg_onoez>and there are some difficults for me
04:50<omg_onoez>i am new to linux
04:50-!-freealan [] has joined #debian
04:50<omg_onoez>cuz what if i will forget to plug in sd card before booting
04:51<omg_onoez>or i dunno :D
04:51<omg_onoez>sry, nevermind
04:51<omg_onoez>and thx
04:51<jm_>look at /etc/init.d/skeleton for an example
04:52<omg_onoez>thanks for the tip
04:54<omg_onoez>linux changed my life, it always makes you to think and i guess everything is possible, right? :D

05:20<streuner_>nv works here very well
05:20<streuner_>not 3D
05:21<sobersabre>Desert_Storm`: google up "debian nvidia installer"
05:21<sobersabre>it should bring you to debian wiki.
05:21<sobersabre>and ther you have several methods of installation.
05:21<Desert_Storm`>What driver do I need for 7150M?
05:22<sobersabre>Desert_Storm`: nvidia home page has this info.
05:22<sobersabre>I don't follow them.
05:22<Desert_Storm`>Okay, thanks

07:01<urbinek>jm_: for all or just 1 disk ?
07:01<Razique>mjt : so in fact, that means that for every occurence, there is a new instance of xargs ?

07:06<mjt>that's not a right conclusion, not at all.
07:07<Razique>in the max xargs there is an interesting line
07:07<Razique> -a file

07:23<scotz>E: Couldn't find package vncserver << wat am i doing wrong :S
07:23<mjt>asking it for a wrong package?
07:23<flips>jm_: The only choice I get is Detect and mount CD-ROM and Load installer components from CD ... but I am netbooting this ...
07:23<scotz>whats the right package then
07:24<mjt>there's no package named 'vncserver' in debian
07:24<scotz>vnc-server ?
07:24-!-Holborn [] has joined #debian
07:24<mjt>how about using apt-cache search for example?
07:24-!-urbinek [] has left #debian []
07:24<mjt>apt-cache search vnc server
07:24-!-nihil [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
07:25<scotz>lol i did that, and it shows results for KDE
07:25<mjt>it reveals, among other things, tightvncserver and vnc4server
07:25<scotz>even if i try apt-get install vnc4server
07:25<mjt>and also linuxvnc
07:25<scotz>it doesn't work
07:25<flips>maybe there's some argument I can give the kernel/installer to make it load the components over the net, for I am able to detect and configure the network ...
07:25<mjt>vnc4server is available in all stable, testing and unstable
07:26<scotz>why cant i install it from konsole then
07:26<scotz>the package should be there..
07:26<mjt>that's a question to you, i guess ;)
07:27<scotz>if i ask a q, why answer it telling me silly things..
07:27<mjt>define "does not work"
07:27<jm_>flips: hmm d-i internals documents say that in case of netboot it loads additional installer components from network
07:27<scotz>yeh i told u
07:27-!-padski [~padski@] has left #debian [Leaving]
07:27<scotz>Couldn't find package

07:28<scotz>what do you mean
07:29<mjt>i mean that it makes more sense than "it does not work"
07:29<scotz>ok.. continue...
07:29<mjt>now, let's verify /etc/apt/sources.lst and ensure you did `apt-get update'.

07:29<mjt>sources.list it is

07:30<jm_>flips: hmm maybe check BTS
07:30<scotz>and yes i did that
07:30<mjt>and update completed ok?
07:30<scotz>sure did
07:31<mjt>so how about `fgrep -r vnc4server /var/lib/apt/lists/' "
07:31<mjt>that's the dir where it puts the lists of packages available in places listed in /etc/apt/sources.list
07:31<scotz>nix:/etc/apt# E: Couldn't find package vncserver
07:31<jm_>or simply apt-cache policy vnc4server
07:31<Razique>i'm bask sorry i had to buy some food
07:32<Razique>i'm here*
07:32<mjt>scotz: it is again vncserver, which is NOT available.
07:32<mjt>and we already know that
07:33<scotz>Ok my bad,
07:33<scotz>i typed exactaly waht you said
07:33<Razique>so i don't get it how to get my find output and tar it ?
07:33<scotz>and nothing happens -.-
07:33-!-nihil [] has joined #debian

07:35<mjt>Razique: for now anyway
07:35<locklace>anything else need to be built in to the kernel for non-initrd boot except disk, fs and lvm drivers?
07:35<Razique>mjt : yes but i'm tryin to understand why stdins ;)
07:35<jm_>locklace: hardware drivers
07:35-!-zeroXten [~zeroXten@] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
07:35<mjt>Razique: because find prints list of files on stdiot, and you connecting that using pipe (|) to tar
07:36<locklace>jm_: hence "disk", or did you mean something else?
07:36<mjt>Razique: so for tar that will be stdin, which is /dev/stdin
07:36<locklace>jm_: all the low-level hw stuff too, obviously, like cpu/arch stuff
07:36<jm_>locklace: I meant controller, as in sata/ide/scsi/whatever

07:37-!-marceloa is now known as zxd
07:37<locklace>jm_: right. actually for sata it seems like sata and scsi are both needed (at least this disk comes up as sda)
07:37-!-julioh [~julioh@] has joined #debian
07:37<mjt>Razique: some programs recognize stdin/out as `-' (single minus sign). Some does not, and that's where /dev/stdin comes handy.
07:38<Razique>mjt: ok, so that opens door to multiple things ! :)
07:38<Razique>jeez thanks man
07:38<Razique>I've learned something very usefull

07:48<scotz>there isn't
07:48<jm_>locklace: generic SCSI? you don't need that, you need SCSI disk support (CONFIG_BLK_DEV_SD)

08:05<locklace>jm_: yeah, i did, most of those hacks relate to video but this issue may not be video-related (it's a hardlock, i.e. the caps-lock test fails)
08:05<locklace>jm_: however i still went through and tried all the s2ram options on the page, no dice
08:05<mjt>and that CD is labelled "KDE CD"
08:06<jm_>locklace: then try to ask on LKML or use a newer kernel

08:06<locklace>jm_: this is 30rc2

08:06<jm_>locklace: ask on lkml/submit a bug in bugzilla?
08:06<scotz>ok so what should i add
08:07<mjt>scotz: the rest of the packages (it's about 10 DVDs) are not on that CD
08:07<locklace>jm_: i actually got it to work in the stock lenny kernel, so it seems like a regression, unless i did something stupid with my custom kernel options (no idea what, though)

08:09<mjt>scotz: first, your `apt-get update' did NOT finish. If it were, you'd have files for all those in /var/lib/apt/lists/. And second, you're missing the main thing -- like, deb stable main contrib non-free
08:09<jm_>locklace: sounds like it yes, looks like I am lucky as it seems to work OK for me on 3 different machines
08:09<mjt>scotz: `apt-get update' does exactly one thing: it fetches package lists from places listed in sources.list and puts those lists into /var/lib/apt/lists/
08:10<scotz>Reading package lists... Done
08:10<scotz>it did lol ;\

11:05<Boghdan>Having a problem with Debian Lenny (KDE). When i start some software (digikam, amarok, ...) it hangs on starting and appears only after some minutes of waiting. Nor CPU, nor RAM doesn't look to be overloaded at that time and nothing suspicious in the Konsole, when i try to start the program from there. Has anyone met this problem?
11:05<Caldavien_>thank you gsimmons, but thats not really what Im looking for, Im still in the install, and I was hoping for a reference page that tells me when I choose "webserver" what is actualy installed
11:06<gsimmons>Caldavien_: /msg dpkg server tasks

11:17<mtc>hi lately my desktop does not obtain a dhcp address by the time the gnome starts... is there a way to query again without logging on as root?
11:17<valdyn>mtc: yes and no
11:17<valdyn>mtc: no with your current setup, yes if you use something like network-manager
11:18<mtc>valdyn: will install network-manager then, thanks
11:18<valdyn>mtc: but thats maybe more work than you really need to do.. why dont you use root and reset the interface?
11:18-!-pan007 [] has joined #debian
11:19<valdyn>mtc: or why dont you fix your dhcp
11:19<mtc>valdyn: I have been everyday logging in as root and running dhclient, but would like to avoid these steps
11:19<valdyn>mtc: you are aware of "su" and "sudo" ?
11:20<mtc>valdyn: that is what I mean by logging in
11:20<Boghdan>Gathond, how to i use strace? $ strace <application>?
11:20<Gathond>Boghdan: in the simple form
11:20<mtc>valdyn: want to turn on the computer and read the news in the morning - not first have to run a command from the console
11:21<mtc>valdyn: suppose I could write a script to save a little typing, but would still have to type the root password before using the network
11:22<mjt>setting up /etc/network/interface entry with `dhcp' method will help

12:51<djc>!tell gunavara about asking
12:51<aly>hi guys how can i install kde 4.2 on my lenny ?
12:51<gunavara>Apr 20 19:36:43 webserver postfix/smtp[3179]: 670E11A821B9: conversation with[] timed out while receiving the initial server greeting i cannot seem to send any mail but i can recieve from everyone
12:52-!-balazsbela [balazsbela@] has joined #debian
12:52<djc>its possible your ISP blocks outbound port 25 connections
12:52<djc>to anything other than their smtp server (aka 'smarthost')
12:53<djc>I beleive 'use ISP smarthost' is one of the automagic config modes for debian.. of course that would only apply with the default MTA exim
12:53-!-WilliamBlake [~t@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
12:53<djc>you'd have to figure out how to configure postfix to do that yourself
12:54<gunavara>what do u suggest me to do
12:54<djc>are you running a mailserver or just using the machine as a workstation?
12:54<gunavara>a mail server
12:54<darrob>hi. i have 3 external usb drives set up in a software raid. they don't seem to support SMART features, so how will i notice a failing drive? how soon is a failing drive reflected in /proc/mdstat?
12:54<gunavara>on debian
12:54-!-Vorbote [~vorbote@] has joined #debian
12:55<weasel>darrob: when it fails.
12:55<djc>do you have internet connectivity appropriate for that?
12:55<djc>note that home cable/dsl is generally not
12:55<gunavara>yes i do i have optics directly in the office with media convertor and the box something
12:56<gunavara>my only problem is i cannot send mail anywhere apart from local addresses
12:56<djc>Well, some options include 1 Check with your ISP to see if they block port 25.. If they do, they don't intend for you to be running a mailserver
12:56<djc>2. Learn how to conifigure postfix to use their smarthost
12:56<djc>3. hire a qualified MTA admin
12:56<themill>djc: try using port 587 rather than 25
12:56<themill>err... gunavara^^
12:57<djc>that only works if you are submitting mail to a host you have an account on
12:57<darrob>weasel: so do you think that monitoring mdstat for failure is my best option?
12:57<djc>you cant deliver mail to random destination servrers with that
12:57<gunavara>i see
12:57<weasel>darrob: it's better than nothing
12:57<weasel>darrob: raid5?
12:57<djc>and if you are going to use a smarthost, you might as well use your ISPs
12:57<gunavara>is there a way to see if my isp blocks that 25 port without calling them ?
12:57-!-pan007 [] has joined #debian
12:57<themill>djc: I was presuming he was trying to use gmail's smtp, but yeah, you're right.
12:58<djc>gunavara, you mean is there a way to find out if you arent allowed to be running a mailserver without alerting them that you are trying to?
12:58<darrob>weasel: thank you. i'll set that up then.

12:59<djc>you could try to telnet direction to various mx on port 25
12:59<gunavara>can u help me do that if u have the time and nerves djc
12:59<fxiny>send a mutt test via gmail . i can see it in my sent box but hasn't been delivered yet
13:00<pgoerzen>Hi, we have one service that requires Kerberos for authentication, while several others are non-Kerberized and bind to LDAP for authentication. Does anyone have experience/suggestions for keeping Kerberos and LDAP passwords synchronized?
13:00<Whopper>aly: you have to add unstable repo
13:00-!-alephnull [~alok@] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
13:00<Whopper>aly: to do that do
13:00<djc>if you need help doing that, you probably have a lot more learning to do before trying to runa mailserver
13:00<themill>gunavara: even if they allow you to do it, you're probably better off using their smart host. You'll have less problems with people's spam filters that way.

13:03-!-orochi [~orochi@] has joined #debian
13:03<Whopper>aly: ups, i made a mistake in the preferences-file, testing has to be stable
13:03<ranix>especially so since the sheer zerging you get with a mailserver will significantly affect your bandwidth usage at home
13:03<fxiny>sun +36% ...
13:04<ranix>soon as a spammer sees an MX record, you have fuckin enemies at the gates
13:05<ranix>and you need a valid MX record and reverse DNS to be allowed through most gateways
13:05<fxiny>got the gmail now
13:05<aly> im using this article

13:07<ranix>and that he would want to use gmail as a smarthost
13:07<fxiny>djc: does gmail accept mail without an account ?
13:07<djc>well, if you are sending mail *to* a gmail user, sure
13:07<ranix>using public mail servers is a questionable practice anyway
13:07<fxiny>ahh , so he's on some blacklist
13:07<ranix>and gmail actively scrapes your mail for advertising information
13:08<djc>I suspect his ISP is blocking outbound 25,
13:08<djc>I suggested he try to telnet to a few mx port 25 directly to test, and he apparently needed help to do that

13:09<gunavara>that 25 port is the only port that they are blocking
13:09<djc>well there you go then.. you arent allowed to run a mail server
13:09<fxiny>taken , of course , from pandora-box ;)
13:09<gunavara>and told me to use an other address to send mail
13:09<djc>internet email is sent to destination servers using port 25
13:10<djc>port 25 is the only port the vast majority of servers will accepting 'incoming' mail on
13:10<gunavara>can u guide where to read how to change that address i mean my server to use their address to send the mail
13:10<djc>remove postfix. reinstall exim. use debians stock/default configuration
13:10<ranix>I didn't fully understand email until I read spec.txt
13:11<ranix>I would suggest you read spec.txt, gunavara, but it is a bit difficult to parse unless you are experienced at reading documentation
13:11<djc>somewhere in there it will ask what 'role' you want it to use.. you want to use the one that uses a smarthost
13:11<djc>ranix, hes got postfix on, not exim

13:17<djc>starting back from v 2.x
13:17<fxiny>from a user point of view exim just works . postfix is much harder
13:18<djc>Not so much an exim vs postfix issue tho, its becuase debian has a built in means to put in various exim configs
13:18<djc>which I personally wouldnt use.. Since I control my own exim config
13:18<fxiny>and a lazy user loves that crap Q&A cause he don't want to learn
13:18<djc>although my exim server runs freebsd nor debian
13:18<fxiny>i dislike that kind of huge bible
13:19<djc>well the thing with exim config, is its basically a languate unto itself.. theres lots of cookbooks and whatnot that people share.. but really, the right thing is to understand what you are putting in does

15:20<danger_>redknight when you right click on the desktop do you get a "create launcher" option?
15:21<locsmif>tuxcrafter, so while you can now read it withouth hw problems, you do have a broken filesystem to contend with..unfortunately ntfs-3g is not built to deal with that, and there are no Linux-based ntfs repair utilities

15:23<RedKnight>patiently waiting....
15:24<danger_>okay do what I said and put gnome-display-properties , that's like making a short cut to the screen resolution editor... then you should be able to change the resolution and eliminate that as a problem......
15:24<locsmif>m2rt, in that case, install smartmontools and run smartctl -H /dev/yourdevice

16:17<danger_>ah okay
16:18<mebus>Does anyone have an idea, why I can't open a LUKS cryptsetup device although I got the right pwd and it works on another linux installation ?

18:07<dpkg>screen blanking is probably you can control screen blanking in console via setterm -blank (and/or your BIOS powersave settings), and in X via "xset -dpms", xscreensaver, or your desktop environment's screensaver controls. If 'console-tools' is installed, permanent console blanking adjustments can be made via /etc/console-tools/config.

22:08<RobertF>How many years "debian etch" is supported?
22:08<k1lumin4t1>until the next stable release appears, I think
22:09<k1lumin4t1>I mean, right now Etch status is Oldstable
22:09<k1lumin4t1>and Lenny is Stable
22:09<k1lumin4t1>so when Squeeze becomes Stable Etch will go off
22:10<goodger_>sounds about right
22:10<RobertF>ok, thank you
22:10<goodger_>I'd say late 2010? nobody can be sure
22:11<simonrvn>eth is already oldstable... it will be supported for about 1-1.5 year
22:11<k1lumin4t1>so, if your doubt is related to keeping Etch still, then you can. But it's actually more recommendable to do the upgrade
22:11<simonrvn>k1lumin4t1: not true
22:11<k1lumin4t1>simonrvn, not true what?
22:11<simonrvn>except about the upgrade of course
22:12<simonrvn>22:09 < k1lumin4t1> so when Squeeze becomes Stable Etch will go off

22:14<dpkg>Etch is the code name for the previous stable Debian release, version 4.0, released on April 8th, 2007. Etch security support will continue until about February 2010; now is the time to start planning your upgrade to Lenny, ask me about <etch->lenny>. Also ask me about <oldstable>, <oldstable security>, <install etch>, <etch release notes>. Currently <4.0r8>.
22:14<dpkg>i guess lenny is the binoculars, or the code name for the current stable Debian release, version 5.0, released on 2009-02-15: Ask me about <lenny release notes>, <install debian>, <etch->lenny>, <release history>, <installer firmware>. Currently <5.0.1>.
