01:33<eric_justin_allan>what do you need help with?
01:33<Otnehs>After restarting Debian I'm not longer able to FTP, SSH, or VNC into the server.
01:33<Otnehs>They gave me a KVM-to-IP but when I login I see the console but it's just the shoutcast server.
01:33<Otnehs>How do I get to an actual console?
01:34<Otnehs>I tried using ctrl+c to end the shoutcast server and work from there but it just resets every command i put in. I don't have any way to actually input a command.

04:33<stevem_>Can I perform a search to list which packages I have already that came from a certain repository?
04:33<stevem_>*"i have already _installed_"
04:33-!-__iron [] has joined #debian
04:35<maxb>stevem_: apt-show-versions and grep may possibly do approximately that
04:36<stevem_>maxb, that isn't showing me what repo each package has come from tho
04:37<fanto666>Hello, I'm not sure if debian keeps that info
04:37<maxb>stevem_: no, but it does show you the suite/codename, I was hoping that the repo you care about might be distinguishable that way
04:37<streuner_>apt-cache policy <package>
04:38<stevem_>hmm I wonder if update-manager keeps logs
04:38<stevem_>I just wanna undo what update-manager last updated in case it got anything from a repo that I accidentally left in
04:38<maxb>Right, that specific info is not kept - but unless the repository maintainer is being very inexperienced/unwise, versions should be unique
04:38<maxb>so you can relate a package+version to the repo it belongs to
04:39<maxb> /var/log/dpkg.log
04:39-!-OkropNick [] has joined #debian
04:39<fanto666>well, things may be different in different repositories
04:39<stevem_>that log file has what I need :)
04:40<maxb>I hope so, or there wouldn't be any point in having different repositories :-)
04:40<stevem_>I can purge them then take the repo out, then re-install them - just to be on the safe side
04:40<stevem_>decided I no longer trust debian-multimedia
04:40-!-elias [] has quit [Quit: Miranda IM! Smaller, Faster, Easier.]
04:40<maxb>I guess you mean the same version could actually be a different file in different repositories, which is true, but if that's the case, you're on a twisty path of pain

04:41<fanto666>stevem what's happened with d-m ?
04:43-!-NightMonkey [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
04:44<stevem_>fanto666, theres just too many conflicts for me to bother with them any more
04:44<stevem_>I'm instead using the fluendo codecs and made my own repo for freeware stuff like flash, adobe, skype etc
04:46<fanto666>heh, you can get rid of own repo then ;-)
04:50<stevem_>fanto666, I'm tired of the constant issue with VLC and d-m, thats whats prompted it
04:51-!-click170 [] has quit [Quit: Goodbye]
04:51<locklace>stevem_: can you elaborate on the issue? i recently added d-m just to get dvds to be able to play, but was reluctant about it because of the unofficial nature of the repository

06:03<stevem_>I'm making a repo that has a mix of i386 and amd64 packages... some are of 'all' type because they're non platform specific... however some packages I only have i386 for... how can I make it so that amd64 don't ignore they're existance?
06:04<stevem_>I'm thinking I can either submit them to the repo as 'all' (bad idea?) or a second copy of the package! (bad idea?)
06:05<locklace>thanks stevem_
06:05<locklace>just guessing, but probably have to just create a copy called "amd64"
06:05<locklace>someone else probably knows for sure

06:20<stevem_>Can I some how use reprepro to includedeb into both amd64 and i386 categories?
06:20<stevem_>or shall I start manually hacking the db? :D
06:21<maxb>stevem_: Is it an arch-all deb?
06:21<stevem_>maxb, some are _all so they're in 'all' ... others are i386 and I have no amd64 counterpart but the i386 version works fine
06:22<maxb>Only if you define 'fine' to involve --force-architecture :-)
06:22<stevem_>I do :D
06:22<maxb>I don't :-)
06:22<maxb>And neither does reprepro, or apt, so tough :-)

07:48<ghantoos>stevem_: you can do an incremental backup, using rdiff-backup

07:59<ghantoos>stevem_: if you just want to know the list off the newlly modified/new files, locklace's before_stamp is what you need
07:59<stevem_>maybe I should just use find and don't include dirs like /dev/ /sys/ etc
08:00<stevem_>ghantoos, yeah but that'll change all the modified times!

08:27-!-jelmer [] has joined #debian
08:27<locklace>Cash: you should compile the whole kernel and all the modules by doing 'make all' in the kernel source root directory. if you then make changes that only affect one module, only it and its dependencies will be recompiled if you do another make

12:15<acu01>man, this email server world is confusing - so Postfix is the postman, Cyrus is the postoffice what else you need there ?
12:16<djc>cyrus offers both an mta as well as a pop/imap server
12:16<djc>you only need one mta
12:16<locklace>acu01: it's straightforward, actually
12:16<djc>mta - handles sending mail to/from/between mailhosts
12:17<djc>pop/imap server - allows pop/imap clients to access mail stored in a mailbox
12:17-!-freealan [] has joined #debian
12:17<djc>pop/imap client - well you probably can guess
12:17<acu01>locklace: everything is straightforward if you know it (sex for example get's out kids - but there are biomolecular secrets which may prevent conception)
12:17<locklace>acu01: the roles are mail user agent (aka client), mail transport agent, mail access server
12:17<djc>mta's include everything from the venerable (and arcane) sendmail, exim, postfix, Smail... uhm.. what else
12:18<locklace>acu01: originally, there were only the first two, because people read mail directly on the system that received it
12:18<djc>you only need one, like car makes include chevy, ford, chrysler (well maybe not for long), etc..
12:18<locklace>acu01: then pop and imap showed up to enable people using their own pcs to read/get mail from the server
12:19<djc>with apologies to any uaw members that might be present, I never really liked chrysler
12:19<acu01>OK, so I want an IMAP server (since POP will not keep the mail)
12:19<Xeross>setting up email server is almost impossible if you ask me
12:19<Xeross>especially with the use of smarthosts and alternate smtp ports
12:19<djc>you need an mta if you want to be able to receive and deliver mail
12:19<Xeross>i tried to tackle it one day but after 12 hours i just trashed it
12:19<djc>you need either a pop or imap server, to let users access their mail
12:19<locklace>acu01: so you need an mta to send and receive mail to/from the net, and a mas if you want to read/get your mail remotely via a protocol like pop/imap
12:20<djc>ideally, you want the mta and the pop/imap server to agree on where/how the mail is stored
12:20<djc>s/ideally/if you want it to work/
12:20-!-hollo [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
12:20<djc>and yes, it can be tricky business if you are a newb
12:20<djc>very easy to setup a very insecure system that could be a spam relay or other 'Bad Things'
12:21<djc>You dont want point-and-click.. You want to read (a lot) and understand.. The best way of course is to go under the wing of someone that is an expert
12:22<Xeross>djc: Ye but that is costly
12:22<djc>Note - someone that would run an mta on a windows machine is never an expert.. someone that thinks you should point-and-click is almost never an expert
12:22<djc>I didnt say you had to hire someone..
12:22<Xeross>djc: I used to run kerio mailserver on windows :P
12:22<djc>a friend, a co-worker.. a local linux user group
12:23<djc>just keep in mind that there are a lot of people out there that think they know wtf they are doing that are complete idiots
12:23<djc>Xeross, I'm sorry
12:23<Xeross>crap i haven't checked if my mailsending is still working
12:24<Xeross>probably not as the smarthost of my isp has changed
12:24<acu01>so let's recap - I need a client (such as Evolution/Outlook - that's me), I need a MTA (postfix) which is Postmaster - I need an postoffice (which is IMAP server - dovecoat) then I need SMTP thats a sexy postwomen which delivers the mail from the POSTOFICCE to my Door - thith I get it wright ?
12:24<djc>To be honest, no Windows machine should ever be directly connected to a public Internet connection.. should always be behind a NAT/fw box
12:24<locklace>acu01: not quite
12:24<djc>acu01, well, first off, do you have a domain that you want to host mail for? or do you just want to be able to send/receive mail for an account hosted elsewhere?
12:24<acu01>about the sexy women ?
12:25<Xeross>sexy women ?
12:25<djc>smtp is a protocol. an MTA 'listens' on port 25 for incoming mail.
12:25<locklace>acu01: mta is the centerpiece for sending and receiving mail from/to the net. if you want pop/imap access, set up a mail access server; then you can talk to it with your client.
12:25-!-chris1_ [] has joined #debian
12:25<djc>but, see 'first off' above
12:25<djc>the answer to what you need is dependent on the answer to that question
12:25-!-chris1_ [] has quit []
12:28<acu01>locklace: I might get it - so as a client I need to have Evolution and Postfix (configure also with SMTP) ----- as SERVER I need a mail server IMAP - and the MTA (postfix) with SMTP - am I closer ?
12:28<djc>acu01, well, first off, do you have a domain that you want to host mail for? or do you just want to be able to send/receive mail for an account hosted elsewhere?
12:28<acu01>djc: yes I have a fully qualified domain and a static IP
12:29<locklace>acu01: no
12:29-!-hollo [] has joined #debian
12:29<Xeross>djc: Don't forget to tell him to check if his port 25 is open
12:29<acu01>port25 is open
12:30<locklace>acu01: once more, three roles: client (mua), smtp server (mta), pop/imap server (mas). if the client is on the same system as the mta, no mas is needed.
12:30<acu01>what do you need to install first: the IMAP server (I understand that there is a choice among Cyrus and Dovecot)
12:30-!-skandaleras [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
12:31<locklace>acu01: if the client is on some other system, then it needs to get mail from the server, so the server needs to run a mas to provide the pop/imap access.
12:31<locklace>acu01: start with the smtp server, i.e. the mta. everything else is secondary
12:33<locklace>acu01: you can get mail send/receive working with nothing but the mta and a local client; get that working first. then you can add a mas to provide pop/imap access for remote clients
12:33<acu01>locklace: but there are many clients - in different parts of the world (of course I understand that there are ways to setup a webinterface to the mail server) - but is starting to make some sense - -- if you have only one client - (your workstation is the place where you receive your email - no need for a mail server)
12:33<locklace>acu01: see above. get the mta working first
12:33<acu01>got it
12:34<acu01>no pray for me

12:36<locklace>yes, postfix is good. no idea about cyrus, suggest checking around to see what mas options are available based on your specific needs; simpler the better, in my view
12:38<acu01>locklace: I want to setup a collaborative environment - but I will use a content management system as ezpublish so I might not need the groupware sofistication of Cyrus

13:45<bja> Where can i find the default groups a normal user belongs to.
13:45<locklace>probably /etc/adduser.conf or something
13:46<locklace>i mean there are no defaults really, you put new users in whatever groups you want

14:02<douglaz>the root parameter line is "root (hd0,0)"
14:02<locklace>dexthageek: i can't remember whether the mountd proto version matches up as expected with the nfsd version
14:02<douglaz>should it be like sdb1,0 instead?
14:03-!-vev [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
14:03<locklace>dexthageek: but you can try starting one up using the "-V 3" arg

14:04<douglaz>oh, right... so sorry
14:04<ranix>douglaz: I think you want to find a root=sdblah type line
14:04<ranix>but I am unsure
14:04<ranix>if you can find your kernel at all, hd0,0 is correct
14:04<douglaz>says ... root=/dev/sdb1 ro
14:04<ranix>there, is the hard disk you're booting from actually sdb?
14:04<ranix>not sda?
14:04<dexthageek>well I just found it out why it is not accepting nfsv3
14:05<dexthageek>I have NO idea why mountd is running this way
14:05<dexthageek>root 21162 1 0 Jan21 ? 00:00:01 /usr/sbin/rpc.mountd --no-nfs-version 3
14:05<locklace>well, that certainly explains the rpcinfo
14:05-!-alej25 [] has quit []
14:05<douglaz>I'm not sure anymore... I'll change it and give it a try... hold on
14:05<ranix>douglaz: if you install from USB, the installer will detect your hard disk as sdb and the USB drive as sda, but when you reboot and attempt to boot from the disk, that reverses
14:06<dexthageek>is there a mountd configuration anywhere?
14:06*zhxk gotta sleep, good morning, good aftertoon and good night every one! see you late!
14:06<dexthageek>I looked but couldnt find one
14:06<locklace>ranix: argh, i had that problem during install. installed everything to the hd but it ended up installing the bootloader on the usb drive instead
14:06<ranix>locklace: hahaha that's horrible
14:07<ranix>I've done similar
14:07<locklace>ranix: yeah, no kidding, the installer needs some serious fixes in this area. usb install is a common thing these days
14:07<douglaz>I installed from a network CD, but I used a USB drive to load the missing firmware drive for the sas support...

14:08<dexthageek>lockIace: I wonder why debian would choose to start mountd without v3 support
14:08<locklace>ranix: what i actually had to do was reinstall, and the second time physically pull the usb drive out right after the installer was done loading

14:09<douglaz>I got a bunch of warnings going on, but it looks like the filesystem was found with the sda parameter

14:13<simonrvn>you need a / in front ;)
14:13<locklace>dexthageek: yes, nfs4 is different, you don't use nfsvers you use a different fs type
14:13<simonrvn>nfs4 iirc
14:13<locklace>dexthageek: but i can't explain your error without going through the exercise of seeing exactly how you have your server and client configured for nfs4
14:13<dexthageek>i shouldnt need any changes to exports to support nfs4 right
14:14<mjt>iarlyy: what you're looking for is ulimit. See also /etc/secure/limits.conf
14:14<reky>i am new here

14:15<simonrvn>reky: /server /join #foo
14:15<mjt>iarlyy: a non-logged-in user isn't supposed to have any processes running.

14:15<mjt>iarlyy: i don't understand this your last question.
14:15<simonrvn>reky: your irc commands, you need a /
14:15<locklace>dexthageek: also, obviously, verify that rpcinfo shows protocol version 4 mountd and nfsd processes running

14:32<johns>so, I have a sid armel system whose clock is losing time rapidly
14:32<bja>locklace: Yes now its working thanks
14:32<johns>it has the correct time on boot
14:32<iarlyy>yep, I'm looking for a tool that limit memory usage of a process
14:32<barnes>mjt i thought soo to but it worked when i used ext2 as the partitioner defaults for /boot instead of ext3 but i will look more at it tomorrow
14:32<johns>but then loses at least a few minutes every hour so that the clock gradually falls behind
14:32<mjt>barnes: ext3 and ext2 are fully interchangeable
14:32<barnes>thats why its soo wierd
14:32<mjt>(not to say the same about ext4)
14:32<johns>ntpdate fixes it obviously, but it's not online frequently enough for that to be the permanent solution

14:38<eric_justin_allan>I dont know for sure but I thnk the debian feedback is missing some very important things but I could be wrong.
14:38<johns>on another system I found that there was a bug with cpufreq scaling support that was causing the clock to be wrong, just wondering what might be happening on this one...
14:38<eric_justin_allan>theres alot of pausing when installing packages on my computer
14:38<mjt>johns: well, in that case it's best to ask on linux kernel mailinglist, or armel-specific one. That stuff is way too platform-specific.

14:39-!-legnaleurc [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
14:39<johns>mjt: yeah, that's the thing, I'm not confident of that so I guess I'm looking for some advice on how to track that down or debug
14:41<mjt>johns: well, it's easy to find out, i think. Just take a look at what's running. Its easy to spot various ntp stuff. Other possibility is ntpdate invoked from cron. That's basically all.
14:41<mjt>i mean, there SHOULD be no other things messing with date.
14:41<mjt>cpufreq is in kernel, so it's again kernel problem/question.
14:42<johns>yeah, it's not cpufreq on this one, as that's not installed
14:42<mjt>cpufreq - the main component anyway, is a kernel module (or set thereof)
14:43-!-steven [] has joined #debian
14:43<mjt>you can install a userspace application to control it or show a GUI for it, but the main thing works entirely in kernel and does not need userspace help.
14:43<johns>right, but nothing is using it
14:44<johns>and the bug I mentioned related to reducing cpu
14:44<mjt>to activate it, 2 things is needed: to load appropriate kernel modules (driver for changing frequencies and a governor that will control it) and activate (trigger) it in sysfs.
14:44-!-fregl_ [] has joined #debian
14:44<mjt>or it can be enabled by default in kernel (custom built)
14:45<johns>yes I understand :)
14:45<mjt>but ok
14:45-!-BusError [] has left #debian [Leaving]
14:45<mjt>right :)
14:45<locklace>doesn't the stock debian kernel enable it by default
14:45<eric_justin_allan>also the default checkbox for synaptic somehow clicks automatically close on its own when trying to click close details<---!!!!
14:45<mjt>well, for that i don't know
14:45<johns>the bug I was referring to only manifests when the governor is changed
14:45<johns>so, that's not the issue here
14:45<locklace>istr it being set to ondemand in the stock debian kernel and working out-of-the-box
14:46<mjt>that's interesting really. Because cpufreq still has quite some issues esp. on various "weird" hardware
14:46-!-steven [] has quit []
14:46<locklace>there are a lot of "interesting" things in the stock kernel
14:46<mjt>so it's safer to not enable it by default

14:47<locklace>i was blissfully ignoring the actual problem

17:01<o-o>experimental has it.
17:01<napoly>I tried to build with compat-wireless driver.. with the old one.. still nothing

17:02<napoly>thnx a lot.. is that the newest kernel for debian 64 bit?..
17:02<locklace>it's the newest official package
17:02<locklace>you can always build your own, which is what i do
17:03<napoly>ok.. will try to do it..
17:04<locklace>suggest just installing that sid kernel package first though, since it's quick and easy and good to have around anyway

17:09<stuckey>Anyone here want to tell me how to install software on debian live?
17:09<locklace>napoly: no, do not move to unstable
17:09<locklace>napoly: just install that kernel package

17:10<napoly>do you have some tut about upgrading kernel?.. have found some but not sure it they r good..

17:13<crowd>Is there a nice and easy appz (GUI) which can be used to burn CD's and DVD's ?

17:38<napoly>i did.. but with compat-wireless-old.. and it was copied probably somewhere else.. [at least it seemed like that]

17:40<napoly>ok.. it's done but still nothing in lib/firmware... should i reboot?

17:41<locklace>then you didn't really install it
17:41<locklace>make sure you have the "non-free" keyword in your /etc/apt/sources.list. if not put it in and do an "aptitude update" and then do the install again

17:45<locklace>N_NME: you are using the whole disk block file and not the partition block file as an argument to mkfs, aren't you

17:46<N_NME>hmm..maybe..should i leave the number when running mkfs?
17:47<locklace>what argument are you using now
17:47<N_NME>im using /dev/sda1
17:47<napoly>ok.. it was edited through pico.. and aptitude install firmware-iwlwifi still returns 0 packages upgraded and so on..
17:47<locklace>ok, that's correct, provided your partition is partition 1
17:47<locklace>napoly: you have to do an "aptitude update" first

18:43<Steven_M>hi all, is there a way to capture everything that's currently on VT 1 and put it into a t text file?
18:43<adama>if so you need to add something to your boot line like vga=0765 or something
18:44<Kerz>no no i have slim (display manager like gdm right?)
18:44-!-walldo [] has joined #debian
18:44<Kerz>adama: i tried adding vga=791 and it went nuts i dont think i want to mess with that, even tho i can barely see on tty
18:45<walldo>if my fluxbox randomly went crazy after apt-get updating could i ask about it here?
18:45<adama>Kerz: so you are trying to change the resolution of your desktop enviromnent? Or the ttys?
18:46<adama>walldo: you could, or there may be a fluxbox channel somewhere

18:48<Kerz>adama: the desktop environment :)
18:48<walldo>okay, i had a lot of windows open and all of a sudden my shit started acting nutty and it wouldn't let me minimize anything so i restarted, now everytime i launch fluxbox the menu dosnt work
18:49<walldo>i wasnt editing the menu or anything, and this was after an apt-get update apt-get upgrade, i didnt see a fluxbox upgrade package being installed though, all sql stuff
18:49-!-kristianpaul [~kristianp@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]

18:52<walldo>im in gnome right now, i hate it haha. maaan if i do that will i lose all my customization?
18:52<Kerz>adama: i changed my resolution to a very high number on xfce, after changing i couldnt see anything and there appears to not be a timer that reverts the resolution to where it was :(
18:52<Piet>so i have a new pc with every part being new but the drives. it keeps failing every hour or two, and the mdadm raid1 gets degraded and must resync. (the old system was stable), but quite different in term sof hardware. how should i go about finding the root cause?
18:52<Kerz>walldo: back it up just in case
18:53<Piet>"failing" here means that it resets, powers off and restores power afterwards.
18:54<adama>Kerz: from TTY, DISPLAY=:0 xrandr -s 800x600 should work
18:54<Piet>cpu is 38°C so that's not the problem. could be bios, ram, chipset, shortened circuits, whatever

19:35<eternal1>if apache becomes vulnerable, the fact that www-data have a shell ... makes the problem worse
19:35<eternal1>maybe i can restate my question
19:36<eternal1>what happend if i remove the shell to the user www-data ?
19:36<Knorrie>shell is only used while logging in via ssh etc
19:36<Knorrie>or su to the user
19:36<Knorrie>i suspect nothing
19:36<dondelelcaro>eternal1: that actually won't change anything
19:36<eternal1>so, why the default config have a shell at all
19:37<Knorrie>but if you can execute any system command from any process you can start any shell you want
19:37<dondelelcaro>eternal1: having or not having a shell only affects logins; it won't affect things that are already running as that user
19:39<dondelelcaro>part of the reason why it is that way is for historical scripts that use su www-data; or similar
19:39-!-Steven_M [~steven@] has joined #debian
19:39<eternal1>ok, i understand that ... but if tomorrow an exploit may use the shell
