00:27<woodrad>I'm having a problem with my network card (pastebin of lspci -vvv here: It seems that intermittently the network card will stop working and the linux kernel will grind to a halt. This seems to happen with many distros of linux, though I am using, and would like to continue to use, debian. I'm using kernel 2.6.26-2-amd64
00:28<woodrad>anything I can do to fix this or any way to get more diagnostic information to try to resolve this?

00:53<Zviper>im getting access denied every time i try to log in as root. i was just using it minutes ago, it won't accept my password. what should i do?
00:53<jmarsden>Zviper: Log in as a normal user instead? :)
00:53<Zviper>nothing is working
00:54<cahoot>turn off caps lock
00:54<Zviper>not the problem
00:55-!-forest [~forestmar@] has joined #debian
00:55<jmarsden>Worst case, boot from a LiveCD and use that to fix your hard drive installation... but I don't have time to explain exactly how to do that right now...
00:55<pato>jmarsden, thanks
00:55<Zviper>i can get to the webmin
00:56<Zviper>i also have access to a rescue console
00:56<jmarsden>Zviper: Then use the rescue console to fix your root pw... use whatever info the provider gives you for doing that.
00:57<Zviper>i tried doing passwd
00:57-!-fnordus [~dnall@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:57<Zviper>but it gives the same error
00:57-!-fnordus [~dnall@] has joined #debian
00:58<jmarsden>I suspect either (a) you were doing something very odd with PAM config files when it broke, or (b) you are not using the rescue console correctly??
01:00<Zviper>it's not a
01:00<Zviper>it's possibly b
01:00<Zviper>i did vnc in
01:00<Zviper>and i used the terminal to change the password using passwd
01:00<Zviper>but it's still not accepting it
01:01<pato>i get error for version dependencies with some libs for gcc 4.3.3-3, should i uninstall the old lib or is there anyway to install both libs?
01:03<enouf>pato: you can have multiple versions of gcc installed

01:15<enouf>woodrad: do you see tx/rx errors in ifconfig -a output for that iface?
01:15<enouf>woodrad: i forget if that chip was the one with the offload_checksumming issue or not .. ethtool can turn that off if so

01:38<EmleyMoor>On my laptop, flashplayer-mozilla (from dmm) does not appear to be what my iceweasel is using for flash, though it is installed. How do I make it work?
01:43-!-actatux [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
01:43<mastroquet>EmleyMoor: is iceweasel using any other flash plugin, or none at all?
01:44<EmleyMoor>mastroquet| I suspect none at all but could do with a definitive way tocheck
01:45<mastroquet>EmleyMoor: 'about:plugins' in the addrees bar
01:45-!-githogori [] has joined #debian
01:46<EmleyMoor>The Shockwave Flash 10 plugin isn't listed but the 9 is, in the Add-ons
01:47<mastroquet>EmleyMoor: you could remove the addon and symlink from dmm to ~/.mozilla/plugins, perhaps
01:48-!-warren [~warren@] has joined #debian
01:48<EmleyMoor>about:plugins lists no Shockwave Flash (because I tried disabling 9) on there
01:49<warren>i've installed squeeze with a netinstall, and when rebooting my screen says "out of range", i had the same problem in the past with ubuntu and installing nvidia fixed the problem, but there is no nvidia-glx package in the repos, can someone help me?
01:49<mastroquet>EmleyMoor: but I think flashplayer-mozilla (from dmm) should work out of the box with iceweasel
01:49<EmleyMoor>mastroquet: I agree it should...
01:49<EmleyMoor>I have an AMD64 machine on which it does
01:49<gsimmons>warren: /msg dpkg non-free sources ; /msg dpkg nvidia
01:51<warren>gsimmons: i get no msg :p
01:51<gsimmons>!non-free sources
01:51<dpkg>extra, extra, read all about it, non-free sources is edit /etc/apt/sources.list, ensure that the two main debian mirror lines end with "main contrib non-free" rather than just "main", then aptitude update. But bear in mind that you'll be installing <non-free> software. These may have onerous terms; check the licenses.
01:51<dpkg>To use an NVIDIA graphics card with Debian, see If you've done it before, asking me about <nvidia pre-built> or <nvidia m-a> might work. Installing directly from (ie. with <nvidia-installer>) is _not_ supported in #debian, please go to #nvidia (
01:52<warren>but i want to fix it using x first
01:52<warren>i tried dpkg-reconfigure xorg-xserver
01:52<warren>but it didn't ask for resolutions or refresh rates, weird
01:52<cahoot>new not wierd

01:54-!-buddyholy_fx [~buddyholy@] has quit []
01:54<warren>yes it does, but i want to install nvidia later
01:54<cahoot>so use nv?
01:54<woodrad>enouf: here's the pastebin for ifconfig -a
01:55<warren>but i get out of range
01:55<enouf>woodrad: no errors it seems .. is lo also present though?

01:56<enouf>woodrad: note; there seems to be debug controls for sky2 in the kernel Kconfig should you want to enable that (recompile your own kernel)
01:57<panv>hi, can i download multimedia messages to my computer instead of my mobile phone ?
01:57<enouf>i would just try a newer debian kernel 1st though ;-)
01:57<woodrad>ok, I think that's the newest stable one, I can always use a newer one though if you think that would fix it. that's an easy enough answer
01:57<enouf>woodrad: you sure sky2/marvell is eth1 ? /msg dpkg 70
01:58<enouf>woodrad: compare HWaddr 00:11:09:eb:f4:2f to what's listed in that file ...
01:59<woodrad>yeah, the mac address in the fail says that the PCI device is using sky2 drivers
01:59<woodrad>I can pastebin the whole thing if you like though
01:59<warren>can someone help me to configure my x ?
02:00<panv><panv> hi, can i download multimedia messages to my computer instead of my mobile phone ? i need help please.

02:04<EmleyMoor>I think I may have found the answer... if I have I will mention it here
02:05<enouf>woodrad: go to p.d.o - grab the .29 linux-image-2.6.29-xxx.deb and dpkg -i <pkgname.deb> to install it, reboot into it - see how it works - i see many of the git commits for sky2 saying; "I don't have this hardware to test, so this changes are untested."
02:06<enouf>woodrad: from .25 - .27 ... at the least
02:06<woodrad>will do

02:12<EmleyMoor>To fix my flash problem I completely removed swfdec-mozilla and flashplayer-mozilla, reinstalled flashplayer-mozilla and then installed the gnome metapackage
02:13<cahoot>don't forget noflash! ;)
02:13<cahoot>err sort of fell on my face there - flashblocker?
02:14<woodrad>enouf I'm going to reboot and give it a shot, only time will tell if this fixes it or not, it seems to be intermittent. I'll leave my pc running overnight and see what happens.

02:15<enouf>woodrad: check logs in /var/log as well ... learn how to use magic sysrq ; /msg dpkg sysrq
02:16<enouf>woodrad: i mean .. try to home in on some specifics so you/we can ascertain if it's your browser locking up. OOM-killer kicking in .. or not.. some Memory leak from some misbehaving app ..
02:17<enouf>" It seems that intermittently the network card will stop working and the linux kernel will grind to a halt.

02:21<enouf>woodrad: also /msg dpkg bootlogd
02:21<woodrad>enouf in /var/log/kern.log there are a lot of occurrences of this:

02:22<enouf>woodrad: ouch!
02:22<enouf>eth1: hw csum failure
02:23<woodrad>there are _tons_ of them
02:23<enouf>woodrad: look into what i mentioned about using ethtool to disable that
02:27<woodrad>alright, it's disabled now
02:27<woodrad>that setting will remain the same even after a reboot, kernel upgrade, etc, right?
02:28<enouf>woodrad: what exact command did you use? and did you check via querying?

02:28<oneforall>hi just wondering on a multi deb system where are the libs for 32bit going ?
02:29-!-Zviper [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
02:29<enouf>i can't make heads nor tails of the ethtool manpage - i think you'd need to use "ethtool -K eth1 tx off rx off" because tx/rx off|on can also apply to Pausing and other settings
02:29<oneforall>iirc 64bit is going to lib with a lib64 link and I think the 32bit to lib32 ?
02:29<woodrad>ethtool -k eth1 to see if rx-checksumming and tx-checksumming were on (they were) and ethtool -: eth1 rx off tx off
02:30-!-hellth [] has joined #debian

02:42<valdyn>EmleyMoor: i dont exactly understand, but compiz can scale up or down anything on your screen
02:42<EmleyMoor>valdyn: I will look into that - or possibly a "full screen" mode in iceweasel
02:43<valdyn>EmleyMoor: or is it just that you want to use a different flash plugin?
02:43-!-deniz [] has joined #debian
02:43<valdyn>EmleyMoor: or disable flash entirely?
02:43<valdyn>EmleyMoor: if you resolution is crappy then your computer is probably slow too, no good for compiz
02:43<deniz>sudo apt-get remove --purge removes compiz but i want to remove all compiz's dependencies that aren't used otherwise as do i do that without manually removing each thing related to compiz?
02:44<EmleyMoor>valdyn: I don't have the resolution available on the built in screen
02:44<valdyn>deniz: you want something else than you are saying, which is why its not possible
02:44<valdyn>deniz: aptitude would have marked packages not *explicitely* installed as auto and remove those upon removal of the explicitely installed package depending on those
02:45<deniz>valdyn, so i cant downgrade packages that downloaded & installed along with compiz?
02:45-!-eduardo [~eduardo@] has joined #debian
02:45<valdyn>deniz: what does this have to do with downgrade?
02:46<EmleyMoor>I can zoom out but then it's harder to read the small print
02:46<deniz>valdyn, i thought squeeze repository would solve something so i did sudo apt-get install compiz with squeeze in sources.list but now removed it and am back on lenny sources.list, other than compiz, i havent squeezed anything else
02:46-!-eduardo [~eduardo@] has quit []
02:46<valdyn>deniz: ok, use aptitude in the future
02:47<valdyn>deniz: it will do what i think you want by default
02:47<valdyn>deniz: but only if it was used for installing compiz already
02:47<valdyn>deniz: now dpkg -l | grep compiz and remove listed stuff
02:48<deniz>valdyn, that command gives everything related to compiz?
02:48<valdyn>deniz: maybe everything that you think of as "related to compiz"
02:48<deniz>valdyn, well it said it upgraded 57 packages b4 and i c about 10 with that command u gave

02:49<EmleyMoor>Hmmm... if I turn off the toolbars it's not so bad
02:49<valdyn>deniz: you can track this by reading /var/log/dpkg.log
02:49<valdyn>deniz: i now understand that what you really want is a snapshot feature
02:49<valdyn>deniz: which debian doesnt have
02:50<valdyn>deniz: your new libc6, if you got one in the process, is hardly "directly related to compiz"
02:50<valdyn>deniz: but compiz might have depended on a new libc6
02:50<deniz>glib6c got upgraded ya
02:50<deniz>i wanna downgrade it
02:50<valdyn>deniz: i said "might"
02:51<valdyn>judd: versions libc6
02:51<judd>valdyn: libc6 -- etch: 2.3.6.ds1-13etch9+b1 lenny: 2.7-18 squeeze: 2.9-4 sid: 2.9-9
02:51<deniz>no i remember it saying it
02:51<valdyn>deniz: youre fucked, this can only be fixed manually
02:52<valdyn>deniz: you can try "aptitude install libc6=2.7-18" and watch what it would do
02:53<valdyn>deniz: *everything* on your system needs libc6, tahts why its dangerous to mess with it

03:10<deniz>valdyn, just a question: to downgrade you must always have the repository you want to downgrade to in the sources.list and you cant downgrade in debian testing if the package used to be there because it will be completely removed in favour of the update, right?

05:01-!-nowhere_man [] has joined #debian
05:01<nowhere_man>hi all
05:01<nowhere_man>I have the following problem with ALSA:
05:02<nowhere_man>KDE 4.1 just informed me that my audio device disappeared, and it's not possible to start alsamixer anymore
05:02<nowhere_man>alsamixer: function snd_mixer_load failed: Invalid argument
05:02<cahoot>nowhere_man: as root run speaker-test -t wav -c2 - any error?
05:02<nowhere_man>although I'm supposed to have two sound devices, my Intel HDA controller and my USB webcam
05:03<cahoot>nowhere_man: cat /proc/asound/cards - any listed? which one is card0
05:04<wnd>blast_hardcheese, you can probably play around with LS_COLORS environment variable but that's probably not what you want
05:04<nowhere_man>my first question is: why has alsaconf disappeared? previously, I would have run this one as root and everything would be fine, what is the new procedure?
05:04<dpkg>alsaconf is a formerly included <ALSA> configuration tool to detect sound cards. Removed from 'alsa-utils' at 1.0.17-1: "The only valid use-case for alsaconf is aiding the configuration of ISA sound cards." Ask me about <install alsa> and <alsa checklist>.
05:05<cahoot>nowhere_man: intermittently attached sound devices (like the cam) might confuse the choice of 'default' card
05:06<nowhere_man>ALSA lib pcm_dmix.c:1008:(snd_pcm_dmix_open) unable to open slave
05:06<nowhere_man>Playback open error: -2,Aucun fichier ou dossier de ce type
05:06<nowhere_man>is what I get with speaker-test
05:06<ootput>i'd define default card in asound.conf or asoundrc with specific card device as found in /proc/asound/cards mentioned earlier
05:06<cahoot>nowhere_man: try (as root) alsa force-reload
05:07<cahoot>ootput: I'd suggest give the wanted card index 0 and never use an .asoundrc
05:07<ootput>cahoot: never?
05:07<cahoot>well not unless you really know what you do
05:07-!-eeeuser [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
05:07<ootput>so.. not never ;)
05:08<nowhere_man>cahoot: that's what I needed

05:08-!-simonrvn [] has quit [Quit: Sage, Tobacco, Sweetgrass, Cedar]

05:09-!-adema [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
05:09<ootput>you don't need to index the cards as you can just refer to them by device
05:09<ootput>statically defining them ain't the best
05:09<nowhere_man>I'm not sure I need that, because KDE already gives preference to the Intel one
05:10<nowhere_man>what is the manpage for that config file?
05:11<cahoot>which config file?
05:13<nowhere_man>for where goes that config file and it's syntax
05:14<cahoot>looking for .asoundrc?
05:15<cahoot>one creates it as needed - the syntax is described here:

07:09<goodbit>Once I copied a 13 mb file to a stick, and it was done in like a second or two

07:31<danger>Well if you do a standard install of Lenny (AMD x64) it'll install Virtual Box OSE but it doesn't setup the kernel modules so you can't actually run a VM in it. The only way around this that I could find was to install the most recent version that "built" the kernel modules (IIRC). So that's probably the best way to go IMHO
07:33<locklace>what's your reason for going with that over kvm?

07:37<danger>Just installing it now, I'll have a play.. How come you're virtualizing open solaris? The only reason I'd use it would be for ZFS but that doesn't really make sense if it's a virtual machine

11:01<eeeuser>Well you have to put the data somewhere. So you can either plug a disk into it, and use unison or dd

11:01<ruben>How do you change the permissions of a file with the command line?
11:01<dpkg>If you do not know how to use chmod but ask for a lesson in "Chmod 101" classes, we feel sorry for you, or simple octal, with r=4 w=2 x=1. rwxr-xr-- = (rwx) (r-x) (r--) = (4+2+1) (4+0+1) (4+0+0) = 754. or ask me about <Permissions>
11:01<ruben>I don't know how to use chmod
11:02<cahoot>chown might be relevant too
11:02<eeeuser>ruben "man chmod"
11:02<eeeuser>basically chmod (permission settings) filename
11:02<Zviper>eeeuser: i don't have phsyical access to the server
11:02<eeeuser>Zviper: looks like you are stuck then.
11:02-!-nuscire [~nuscire@] has quit []
11:03<eeeuser>I can't see where you would backup *to*
11:03<danger>just backup the bits that you can't get from the repo's so everything in /home/* everything in /var/www/* (if you do web dev) etc...
11:03<bja> Zviper: Do you have ssh access to a different server with good upload and download speed?
11:03<Zviper>nope, if i did i would have up'd it to another server
11:04<bja>Zviper: How many hd does your server has?
11:04<Zviper>750gb x 2
11:05<bja>Zviper: The purpose of a backup is to keep information in case of hardware failure, if you do not have raid, then your backup must be in some other disk anywhere it is feasable
11:05<Zviper>would the second hdd suffice?

11:09<locklace>ruben: did you try just asking nicely
11:09<ruben>I am currently stuck with 800 x 600 and it is really annoying me
11:09<eeeuser>ruben: can you xrandr?
11:09<ruben>eeeuser: no
11:09<bja>Zviper: Thats up to you. I have an external hdd at home whit only one purpose, it has a the latest backups, it only gets power up when it is backup time. But then again How Paranoic are you?
11:10<m2rt>can I add custom commands to shortcuts? Like that it should start as root.
11:10-!-r00kie [] has joined #debian
11:10<shamanix>ruben is there something like preferences --> monitor resolution in your menu, or did you try that already
11:10<Zviper>well let me ask you this, is there a way to reformat without affecting the second disk?
11:10<ruben>It won't let me go higher
11:10-!-resume-prob [~chrono@] has left #debian []
11:10<eeeuser>Zviper: It depends if you have a raid device, or if they are configured as two seperate disks
11:11<shamanix>how old is your gfx card, monitor
11:11<Zviper>i think they are configured as two different disks
11:11<eeeuser>if they are two seperate disks, or even two seperate partitions, you can nuke the OS partition safely, without affecting your data
11:11<eeeuser>as long as you didn't put the data on the OS partition
11:11<Zviper>any way to find out for sure?
11:11<eeeuser>use: "mount"
11:12<ruben>My monitor is new, the graphics card is an old AGP nvidia one
11:12<ruben>I know it can display higher as windows managed it
11:12<Zviper>i don't see any indication of raid when i use mount
11:12<sney>I'm back!
11:13<sney>there's a place in xorg.conf where you can tell it to use specific resolutions, ruben
11:13-!-GTS [] has quit [Quit: Saindo]
11:13<sney>subsection "Display"
11:13<ruben>What do I type?
11:13<eeeuser>I meant use mount to see where your partitions and data are. I don't have a lot of experience with raid devices. You need to work out how your disks are configured and where the data actualyl is.
11:13<sney>goes under section "Screen"
11:13<sney>and I don't remember the syntax, hang on

11:21<locklace>ruben: now begins a long and tortuous road
11:21<ruben>What happened there?
11:22<ruben>How so, locklace?
11:22<Zviper>im just wondering if i reformat using my servers panel to reinstall the os that if it would affect the second hdd.
11:22-!-[ZM]finga [~ZM]] has joined #debian
11:22<locklace>ruben: you need the right incantations in your Screen, Monitor, Device and Display sections
11:23<sney>put that in your Section "screen"
11:23<eeeuser>ZViper: I think we have answered your question as much as we are capable of doing so.
11:23<sney>yes, X configuration is pretty annoying, though it would be decidedly less annoying if the Debian overlords hadn't decided to remove xorgconfig
11:23<eeeuser>If you make your questions more specific, then perhaps we can do a better job.
11:24<locklace>ruben: in order for the higher resolution to work, your card needs to support it at the given bit depth, your virtual display size must be large enough, and your monitor video settings must be set correctly
11:24-!-eraserhead [~t@] has quit [Quit: leaving]
11:24<Zviper>yeah sorry, i just thought you might know
11:24<sney>though I've found that having the correct driver loaded and setting the desired resolution in Display sometimes makes the rest just sort itself out
11:25<sney>especially when your monitor doesn't exactly have refresh rates, being an LCD and all
11:25<ruben>It says "can't open file to write"
11:25<sney>well you have to edit it as root of course
11:25<locklace>ruben: the worst part is having to find the values for a line called the Modeline which specifies how exactly your monitor implements the resolution. you will also need the horizontal sync and vertical refresh values for your monitor
11:25-!-eduardo_ [~eduardo@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
11:25<locklace>sney: well, we can always hope ;)
11:25<sney>and then restart X to see the changes take effect
11:25<locklace>since ruben doesn't know about chmod i think the X configuration exercise is going to be a large hurdle

11:38<shamanix>ok it has something like iface eth0 inet dhcp, am I right to asume i just put mtu 1472 after this?
11:38<valdyn>shamanix: nope
11:38<avu>shamanix, see man 5 interfaces
11:38<valdyn>shamanix: dont mess with mtu
11:38<shamanix>I have to mess with mtu because of router and isp
11:39<avu>shamanix, for how this file works. also, if it's about a pppoe connection or something like that, you might want to clamp to mtu using iptables
11:39<avu>shamanix, debian usually does that by default though
11:39<valdyn>mms clamping is done with the ppp scripts somewhere, automagically
11:40<avu>in /etc/ppp/ip-up.d, yeah
11:40<shamanix>yes its a pppoe connection, the recommended mtu I found for my isp is 1472
11:40<shamanix>thats also what I set my router to

14:43<DervishD>@ bcw: I was forced to reboot (a hard reboot actually) because my keyboard was completely dead.
14:43<ghantoos>davi: can you paste the output of 'lspci | grep -i radeon' ?

14:46<ghantoos>davi: are you sure you have a radeon?
14:47<DervishD>@ bcw: logging out. I thought you were talking about that. A full-upgrade is pointless now because I just did a full-upgrade.
14:47<ghantoos>davi: can you paste the output of 'lspci | grep VGA' ?
14:48<davi> ghantoos of course, I have a: POWERCOLOR HD4650 512MB DDR2, which is a Radeon one
14:48<bcw>DervishD, i was talking about whether the computer worked at all after rebooting. but yeah, you're gonna have to try logging out again eventually, just to see if the problem is permanent
14:49<DervishD>@ bcw: My computer is still working fine. I think the x-server isn't restarting or waiting for something.

14:51<DervishD>@ locklace : no problem switching between x and a shell
14:51<davi>ghantoos, I am logged as root
14:51<locklace>DervishD: then exiting x shouldn't be a problem either
14:51<ghantoos>davi: :)

14:53<davi>ghantoos, fglrx driver is buggy and crash on video play. Even the one at unstable has problems
14:53<davi>ATI proprietary drivers suck
14:53<davi>ATI sucks
14:54<DervishD>@ locklace " with Ctrl>Alt>Backspace
14:54<ghantoos>davi: :)
14:54<bja>Isn't ATI drivers supposed to be open source?
14:54<davi>I only hope the Free Software driver follow improving. The one at unstable work more or less well, except to the OpenGL thing
14:54<locklace>DervishD: no, that's an (ungraceful) way to kill the running x
14:55<locklace>bja: there are two kinds, open source (aka radeon/radeonhd) and proprietary (fglrx)
14:55<davi>bja, I have a problem with OpenGL. There is not acceleration support in the ATI Free Software driver, yet.

14:55<DervishD>@ locklace : I should use the logout aplet but I'm just so used to doing it that way.
14:56<locklace>DervishD: i am still trying to figure out how you are starting x. i'm guessing you're using some kind of display manager like gdm
14:56<davi>locklace, Has ATI released the 3daccel code as Free Software?
14:56<resume-prob1>please guys, give a look

15:01<locklace>Flakk: why not just burn one of the netinst disks, they aren't very big at all

15:01<locklace>Flakk: they'll fit on a cd or usb
15:01<Flakk>locklace: i really prefer install from CDroms

15:01<Flakk>i never succeeded with netinstall
15:02<davi>locklace, compiled?\
15:02<locklace>davi: no, one of the guys in #radeon builds .debs of recent ones
15:02<davi>locklace, any URI?
15:03<Flakk>what I am asking : is it really impossible for k3b to copy the files more than 4 G onto a DVD disc? if yes then why the dvd images are larger than 4 g?
15:03<locklace>davi: forgot, sorry. ask #radeon on freenode

16:54<bcw>linduxed, well, you wouldn't want to use it like that if any of the filenames contained spaces. but that would also be a problem with the tr snippet above
16:55<majhool>it's not a real complicated command
16:55<llutz_>rm $(<filelist)
16:55<Supaplex>if they're newlines, convert them to \0 then use xargs -0
16:55<linduxed>am too much of an amateur to have an opinion on the matter :-P
16:55<majhool>he's right; but it depends on how you generated that list of files... wouldn't it be ok if the spaces are escaped with \ ?

18:16<majhool>or did you already do that
18:18<majhool>ok, well, do try it with vesa and fbdev, if have the fbdev package installed

18:29<deniz>when I install debian, does it use the radeon driver on my ati card by default? or does it use something else that is unversal and I have to manually make it use the radeon driver?
18:29<SlimeyPete>it will use the open-source radeon driver by default
18:30<SlimeyPete>well, it should do anyway
18:30<SlimeyPete>check xorg.conf to see

18:30-!-Roberth [] has joined #debian
18:30<deniz>SlimeyPete, ok because on my laptop, i had to tell xorg.conf to use the intel driver for my laptop's intel video card to use compiz, but here compiz doesn't work, what do I do?
18:30<damjan>deniz: check /var/log/Xorg.0.log to see what it uses
18:30<dr|z3d>deniz: The Debian philosphy means the chances of a non-free driver as default are pretty slim..

18:31<deniz>dr|z3d, i dont want a nonfree
18:31<deniz>dr|z3d, i just want compiz to work
18:31<SlimeyPete>deniz: if you want fglrx (closed-source ATI driver with 3D support) you need to install it
18:31<dpkg>hmm... fglrx is "FireGL and Radeon for X", the proprietary display driver made available by ATI. To install, ask me about <fglrx one-liner> or follow the instructions at . As of fglrx-driver 1:9-4-1, no chipsets prior to the r600 series are supported; ask me about <radeon> or <radeonhd> instead. #ati @

18:31<deniz>SlimeyPete, i want radeon, not fglrx
18:31-!-bjron [] has joined #debian
18:31<Roberth>hello, I am considering to try debian, but I got a question about packaging, lets take an example the mplayer package, is there any easy way to rebuild it if I want to change compile options and dependencies?
18:31<zornilemma>Thank You, SmileyPete, for the answer. :) Howerver, if the Device section contains only 2 lines, first one: Identifier "Configured Video Device" and the second one: BusID "PCI:1:0:0" , then how do I switch a driver?
18:31<SlimeyPete>deniz: chances are it's in use, then. Check xorg.conf.
18:31<dr|z3d>deniz: You'll need to install the non-free driver.
18:32-!-dejavu [] has joined #debian
18:32<deniz>dr|z3d, why? ubuntu works out of the box without fglrx and compiz?
18:32<deniz>not ?
18:32<SlimeyPete>zornilemma: that's a bit odd in Debian, but xorg will try to guess the correct driver for you. If you wish to specify one, add a line along the lines of "Driver 'intel'" (where 'intel' is the name of the driver you want)
18:32<dr|z3d>Ubuntu more than likely enables the non-free driver.
18:32<johns>majhool: hm, but using fbdev works!
18:32-!-dejavu [] has quit []
18:32<SlimeyPete>deniz: ubuntu automatically installs fglrx
18:33<deniz>dr|z3d, no it doesn't unless you choose to manually
18:33<deniz>SlimeyPete, no it doesnt
18:33<SlimeyPete>that's not true any more
18:33<SlimeyPete>it will install it automatically now.
18:33<SlimeyPete>at least, it did for me
18:33<deniz>well on 8.10 or 8.04 it's true
18:33<SlimeyPete>thing is, the 'radeon' driver only includes 3D support for certain chipsets
18:33<amphi>enough of this ubuntistry!
18:34<SlimeyPete>though maybe that will improve - I hear ATI open-sourced their driver but I have no idea if they've actually followed through with it ?
18:34<deniz>SlimeyPete, my x600 pro worked with 3d on open source b4
18:34-!-bjron [] has quit []
18:34<zornilemma>and what might be a nice, safe, bet that will certainly not try to do any 3D acceleration, while keeping the 2D working?

18:35<SlimeyPete>zornilemma: what graphics chipset do you have?
18:35<majhool>johns: if you can live with fbdev, then you're good to go. otherwise, try Option "NoAccel" w/the siliconmotion driver

18:36<deniz>SlimeyPete, ya but why doesn't compiz work at all on squeeze? like i like debian because it's very stable, etc but when it comes to compiz i've only run into problems on debian and not ubuntu
18:36<SlimeyPete>zornilemma: as a last resort, "vesa" will give you working (slow) 2D without 3D
18:36<johns>majhool: okay, going to try the noaccel now
18:36<SlimeyPete>deniz: I've seen problems on both

18:37<SlimeyPete>deniz: well, could you re-iterate your problem please?

18:37<zornilemma>according to the lspci: VGA compatible controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. K8M800/K8N800/K8N800A [S3 UniChrome Pro]. However, whenever one executes anything that has anything to do with OpenGL, the laptop either freezes or the X11 crashes.
18:37<deniz>SlimeyPete, when I type compiz in terminal, it doesn nothing but "try to enable it"
18:37<zornilemma>intereastingly, the OpenGL things seem to work flawlessly for the first few seconds before the freeze

18:38-!-githogori [] has joined #debian
18:38<SlimeyPete>zornilemma: hrm. Well, the "vesa" driver will stop the crashes if you don't mind slightly slow video (and no 3D acceleration)
18:39-!-Mir_ [] has joined #debian

18:39<SlimeyPete>deniz: no mention of dri there; you're not using a driver which supports video acceleration
18:39<zornilemma>exellent. So, the line in the xorg.conf should be: start(Driver "vesa")end ?
18:39<SlimeyPete>you may need to use fglrx, like it or not
18:40<SlimeyPete>zornilemma: in Device, yes, it should read: Driver "vesa"
18:40<deniz>SlimeyPete, am i using radeon?
18:40<SlimeyPete>deniz: sounds like it. Check xorg.conf, but I would bet on it

20:24<herbheart>the path does exist. and after a purge it's gone
20:24<herbheart>comlain == complain
20:24<majhool>herbheart: ok, well if there's anything in /usr/share/gconf that the package can't account for it won't remove it and it'll hang around even after a purge
20:24<herbheart>I've also tried downloading the package directly from and installing it using dpkg -i
20:25<majhool>herbheart: that seems to be the case with these md5sums: "However, there are historical md5sums around."
20:25<bcw>eesh, don't do that (unless you absolutely have to)! it has no advantage when you can use aptitude

20:26<herbheart>believe me folks, I'm not one to mess with the super-cow. but this one has got me.
20:26<johns>Is there a comprehensive list of XkbOptions somewhere?
20:27<herbheart>just purged, and it was still there. removed the folder. gonna try re-install now
20:28<majhool>herbheart: ok, if that doesn't work...
20:29<herbheart>aptitude install gconf2-common
20:29<herbheart>is what I'm using

20:32<herbheart>of course, using aptitude it does a lot of other things too, and those ucf complaints also come from a couple other packages.

20:33<majhool>herbheart: you tried ucf --purge?
20:34<herbheart>I did
20:34<herbheart>I purged the package first, then I did the ucf --purge (the folder didn't exist at the time though)

21:30<penpen>np :(
21:30<ircleuser>which file should I get?
21:30<ircleuser>are they all the same?
21:30<ircleuser>debian-501-i386-CD-1.iso is this fine?
21:30<ircleuser>or are they all different
21:30<sney>install disc 1
21:30<sney>ircleuser: i386
21:30<penpen>if you have a wired network connection, i would recommend just going with the netinst
21:31<sney>yeah that one is fine
21:31<penpen>otherwise cd1 should be fine
21:31<ircleuser>ok thank you very much :)
21:32<bcw>herbheart, take a look at line 206. it looks like the error is happening there. try bash -xc 'exec /usr/share/debconf/frontend /usr/bin/ucf -v -d2 /usr/share/gconf/default.path /etc/gconf/2/path'
21:32<bcw>er, if it's a bash script
21:32<ComradeHaz>ircleuser: do net install probably
21:32<bcw>it's a perl script
21:32<ComradeHaz>and come back and ask later about apt sources :)
21:33<bcw>but that seems to be where the problem is
21:33<majhool>yeah, that's got to be where the exit code gets bumped above 0
21:33<herbheart>bcw, that seem to have worked
21:34<herbheart>the file is created now.... but will that help the dpkg cause?
21:34<sney>anything that you need that isn't on it will be downloaded either during install or later using apt
21:34<sney>that works too
21:34<ircleuser>Hi yea problem is the system is so old that it only takes CD, floppy and Hard Disk
21:34<sney>though downloading a 600-ish MB iso and downloading a smaller iso and some packages later will come out to about the same amount of time and bandwidth usage
21:34<ircleuser>so I have to make a iso cd :S
21:35-!-shadouts [~shadouts@] has joined #debian
21:36<bcw>herbheart, well since it's not a bash script, so now you need to find a way to execute perl in debugging mode. i forget how to do that since i lost all interest in perl as soon as i saw python
21:36<aardvarX>ircleuser, you should try the fxce-lxde cd, nice for older systems, i am using now
21:36<herbheart>I never bothered to learn perl when I discovered python
21:38<herbheart>I'm looking at /usr/bin/ucf now, and I see /bin/bash at the top
21:38<sney>do you mean no network connection?
21:39<herbheart>ignore that
21:39<bcw>yeah, ucf is a bash script but /usr/share/debconf/frontend is apparently a perl script (and that seems to be where the problem is coming from, judging by the trace you pastebin'd)
21:39-!-paratux [] has joined #debian
21:40<herbheart>got ya. which sounds like if I fix those locale errors properly then the perl problem should be on its way to be fixed?
21:41<bcw>keeping in mind that perl isn't fresh in my memory, it looks to me like the perl executable doesn't like your locale settings. maybe that quote " you were talking about earlier
21:41<bcw>yes, i think so
21:41<herbheart>when I executed that line on it's own ( line 206 ), it worked and created the file
21:41<bcw>did it give you any errors?
21:41<herbheart>although it did puke about the locale but still worked
21:42-!-deavid [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
21:42<bcw>well it still has issues then, and perl is probably causing the exit with status 20 over that.
21:42-!-justaguy [] has joined #debian
21:42<bcw>i think 'exec' replaces the current process with whatever it calls, isn't that right?
21:43<damjan>bcw yes
21:43<herbheart>based on the syntax, I'd say yes

21:57<herbheart>what I'm trying to figure out is how do we short-circuit the thing so dpkg can get that same exit code and complete the installation?
21:58<majhool>i mean
21:58<majhool>if you really just want to install the package, and i'm not saying you should do this
21:58<herbheart>I've already dpkg-reconfigure locales twice already. and my locale is now set to en_US
21:58<bcw>right after? you didn't start a new shell or anything?
21:58<herbheart>no man.
21:58<herbheart>no new shell.
21:59<bcw>i don't know...
21:59<majhool>but if you really wanted to do that, you could just back up ucf and replace it with a one line shell script: exit 0;
21:59<herbheart>I actually ran it again when I gave you the result
22:00<majhool>herbheart: you should probably apt-get source gconf2-common on your machine and check the postinst

22:08<majhool>johns: did you set a modifier in the edit key dialog?
22:08<johns>majhool: no, it complains when all I do is open it and close it

22:10<majhool>johns: if you ran the xmodmap command line i gave you earlier, that would have done it :)

22:10<johns>majhool: hm, maybe that's not my problem then..
22:11<majhool>johns: what's going on? is something broken or is xkeycaps just complaining?
22:11<majhool>johns: xkeycaps is very talkative
22:11<johns>majhool: still just the issue with both alt keys acting like altgr
22:12<majhool>johns: ok, but you haven't reassigned the alts using xkeycaps yet?
22:12<johns>majhool: right
22:12<majhool>johns: can you just click through xkeycaps' complaints?
22:13<johns>majhool: but if it's already listed as Alt_L and Meta_L, why is it acting like AltGr?
22:14<majhool>ah, ok
22:14<majhool>now i understand
22:15<majhool>johns: xkeycaps should ask to load your keyboard from a list of possibilities when starts up. it's from those keyboard definitions that it gets its information; not from the current X device
22:15<johns>majhool: ah, okay
22:15<majhool>johns: so when you click "write output", it actually dumps a .xmodmap file for the whole keyboard -- even the keys you didn't explicitly change
22:15<johns>majhool: pretty weird that it complains about its own layouts then
22:16<majhool>johns: ayep
22:16<majhool>johns: jwz screwed something up
22:17<johns>majhool: heh, I'm sure he'll explain how that's not the case
22:20<johns>majhool: I see people talking about xkboptions like lv3:lwin_switch to set altgr, but I can't find a comprehensive list of these options
22:20<majhool>johns: one second... they're stored in a local fiile some where...

22:46<johns>majhool: hm, the output ends with Error loading new keyboard description
22:46-!-Arv3n [] has joined #debian
22:46-!-deavid [] has joined #debian
22:46<Arv3n>my keyboard/mouse doesn't work on the debian installer.
22:46<Arv3n>on debian etch, my internet keeps going out (wired)
22:47<Arv3n>on debian lenny, my cd rom drive isn't detected.
22:47<prometheus>what is this channel for? i'm new to linux
22:47<Arv3n>and on lenny with a newer kernel, my usb keyboard/mouse isn't detected in the installer.
22:47<Arv3n>is someone trying to make sure my hardware isnt working? becuase if they are they're doing a really good job.
22:47-!-streuner_ [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
22:47<Arv3n>and its really frustrating how debian fails to create a good kernel 3 times in a row.

22:48-!-prometheus [~prometheu@] has quit []

22:52<majhool>Arv3n: do you have any pertinent log messages from either installation attempt?
22:53<Arv3n>majhool, on debian etch my network device thingy keeps going up, so first reboot its eth0, then after i reboot against its eth1, then its eth2 after another reboot.
22:53<Arv3n>on lenny, the sata_nv driver gets loaded. im not sure why its not detecting my cd rom drive. no weird kernel errors/messages.
22:53<Arv3n>on the lenny with the updated kernel image, i cant even check because my keyboard/mouse doesnt work.
22:53-!-herbheart [~marcdm@] has quit [Quit: falling asleep :)]
22:54<majhool>no chance you have an old ps2 keyboard lying around?
22:54<Arv3n>all on the same computer, the media works on other computers, this also affects parsix (same kernel), and elive testing (similar kernel as well)
22:54<Arv3n>majhool, ha.. this thing only has usb ports.
22:54<Arv3n>dont understand how debian can screw up so bad three times in a row.

22:55<Arv3n>im running klikit, which is based on ubuntu hardy.
22:56<Arv3n>its average hardware on a dell inspiron 531.
22:56<woodrad>enouf: I don't know if you're at the computer, but thanks a lot. I don't mean to call it too soon, but my network card is working with kernel 2.6.26. Only changing those settings with ethtool seems to be needed to fix the issue.
22:57<Arv3n>i thought the backported kernel would work, seems it brings a whole new set of issues.

22:58<Arv3n>i was going to file a bug, but you've either got the mailing list (which is totally too advanced for me -- i dont want to be on some crappy mailing list to file a bug report), or you have to be on debian itself to use the bug report tool.
22:59<Arv3n>majhool, any idea?
22:59<Arv3n>and i can file one from there?
22:59<majhool>Arv3n: yep
23:00<Arv3n>similar to bugzilla?
23:00<Arv3n>ok, thanks. ill be sure to give them a piece of my mind in the bug report. :|
23:00<majhool>Arv3n: less flashy, but self-explanatory
23:00<majhool>Arv3n: what's lsmod say?

23:01<Arv3n>sney, dont be stupid. ive also had issues with debian etch's and lenny's kernel.

23:01-!-cricket[] [] has joined #debian
23:03<majhool>Arv3n: ok. did you run lenny just with the experimental kernel
23:03<Arv3n>majhool, ive tried it plain as well.
23:03<Arv3n>with plain the usb stuff works, but it doesn't detect a cd drive.
23:04<Arv3n>great, isn't it? :D
23:04-!-eraserhead [~t@] has quit [Quit: leaving]
23:04<majhool>ok, i'd go with plain
23:04<Arv3n>yes, but my cd drive isnt detected in the installer.
23:05<Arv3n>thats why i tried the unstable kernel. ^
23:06-!-labjar [~labjar@] has joined #debian
23:06<majhool>Arv3n: i understand, but at least with a working keyboard you have a chance of trying to get the cdrom drive to work

23:06-!-bishop [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
23:06<Arv3n>you got any ideas?
23:07<labjar>how re you?????????
23:07<majhool>Arv3n: do you have another computer you can get on irc with?
23:07<labjar>yaiyalah masa ya iya donk
23:07<Arv3n>not really, no.
23:07<majhool>Arv3n: ok
23:07<Arv3n>just tell me what to do, ill come back.
23:07<labjar>kalian tuh ngomong apa siih
23:08-!-labjar [~labjar@] has quit []
23:09<majhool>Arv3n: ok, well frankly this will be pretty laborious. what i would do if i were in your position would be to write down the modules that cdrom depends on
23:09<majhool>Arv3n: which you will find in lsmod's output
23:09<Arv3n>got it.
23:09<Arv3n>then what?
23:09<Arv3n>interesting.. sr_mod
23:10<majhool>Arv3n: and then i would hit Alt-F2 after the installer becomes interactive, launch a shell, and try to modprobe them
23:10<Arv3n>majhool, so in lsmod to the right would be what it depends on?
23:10<Arv3n>that sounds genius.
23:10-!-Pitxyoki [] has quit [Quit: Pitxyoki]
23:10<majhool>it's the reverse
23:10<Arv3n>i was doing modprobe -r sata_nv modprobe sata_nv and all kinds of other crap.
23:10<majhool>what's on the right is what uses the module
23:10<majhool>as the header says
23:10<Arv3n>well that doesn't help at all because i tried modprobe -r cdrom && modprobe cdrom
23:10<majhool>so sr_mod uses cdrom
23:11<Arv3n>matter of fact, the debian installer walks you thorugh that and tries to help you find a device again.
23:11<Arv3n>the problem is the device isn't showing up in /dev.
23:11<Arv3n>the hard drive does, the cd drive does not (even thought it boots from it lol!)
23:11<majhool>Arv3n: it won't until its driver is properly loaded
23:11<Arv3n>wouldnt it be the cdrom module?
23:12<majhool>Arv3n: sure looks like that
23:12<Arv3n>majhool, cdrom or sata_nv?
23:12<Arv3n>from what you're saying, methinks sata_nv handles the hard drives not the cd drives.
23:12<majhool>it's worth trying to load it, or at least seeing if it's loaded
23:12<Arv3n>pretty sure it is.
23:12<Arv3n>ill wati for the cd to download and see.
23:12<Arv3n>majhool, how much longer you gonna be on for?
23:13<majhool>and so in the console that's devoted to logging, when you modprobe'd cdrom, you didn't see anything?
23:13<majhool>hard to say
23:13<Arv3n>you think it'll be >10 mins?
23:13<majhool>that i'll be around? sure
23:13<Arv3n>all ive gotta do is burn & boot.
23:14<majhool>ok, well try to get some kind of log message
23:14<majhool>dmesg etc
23:14<Arv3n>majhool, ok.
23:14<Arv3n>should modprobe cdrom give some type of message?
23:14<majhool>and don't do modprobe -r cdrom && modprobe cdrom
23:14<Arv3n>like sata_nv when it's loaded gives a few messages about the hd's being loaded.
23:14<majhool>as if the first command fails, the second won't be run
23:14-!-SQlvpapir [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
23:14<majhool>so if cdrom isn't even loaded yet, then you won't try to load it
23:14<majhool>use a semicolon instead
23:14-!-Necrun [~Necrun@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
23:15<majhool>modprobe cdrom might output something to the console
23:15<Arv3n>ill check and see.
23:15<majhool>but check the logging console
23:15<majhool>do you know which one that is?
23:15<Arv3n>ill find it. lol
23:15<majhool>ok, alt right arrow until you get to it
23:16<Arv3n>majhool, keep looking on the irc. i might forget your name.
23:16<Arv3n>or type it wrong.
23:16<majhool>no tab complete in your client?
23:16<Arv3n>pft, sure there is.
23:17<Arv3n>horrible memory.
23:17<Arv3n>not sure why.

23:26<Arv3n>majhool, you think this is it:
23:26<Arv3n>> And I can access the CD ROM. With it unmounted, the installer still
23:26<Arv3n>> fails to detect the cdrom drive; there is no /dev/cdrom symlink made
23:26<Arv3n>> when the sr_mod detects the /dev/scsi1/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/cd.
23:26-!-Arv3n was kicked from #debian by debhelper [use the paster bot or #flood]
23:26-!-Arv3n [] has joined #debian
23:26<Arv3n>none whatsoever.
23:26<Arv3n>i didn't think it'd kick me.
23:26<Arv3n>it did say i unloaded the driver
23:26<Arv3n>but when i loaded it it didn't say anything.
23:26<majhool>did you modprobe sr_mod?
23:27<Arv3n>next time ill try that
23:27<Arv3n>do you also think i should make a symlink to /dev/cdrom from /dev/scsi1/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/cd?

23:28<majhool>Arv3n: supposing that /dev/scsi1/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/cd exists, it's worth a shot
23:28<Arv3n>ill check around that path some.
23:28<majhool>Arv3n: but it's probably a better idea to load the other modules
23:28<Arv3n>brb. let me try this :D
23:28<majhool>like sr_mod
23:28<Arv3n>yeah, i was gonna try that first.
23:28<woodrad>sure thing, enouf
23:28<enouf>woodrad: feel free to embellish and mention the ethtool workaround, though i found out about it through debian kern dev channels

23:37<Arv3n>it says something like "srmod - sd driver needs updating, pls. use bus_type method"
23:38<Arv3n>but it does show up to the right of cdrom in lsmod. now we're getting somewhere. the most progress ive made in a month.

23:42<majhool>no /dev/cdrom, right?
23:42<majhool>does /dev/scsi etc show any device
23:42<Arv3n>i also didn't find that device.
23:43<majhool>sr_mod is a necessity
23:45<majhool>ls /dev/sd* on the installation machine
23:45<Arv3n>sda, sda1, sda5, etc..

23:45<Arv3n>no, i think just sdb.
23:45<Arv3n>and then when i try and mount it it says no media detected.
23:46<majhool>wait, not "not block device"?
23:46<Arv3n>i dont think so. o_o
23:46<Arv3n>want me to try it again?
23:46<Arv3n>i think i actually ejected the disc then reinserted it when i did that.
23:46<majhool>well, if it says "no media detected" then it sees the cdrom
23:46<majhool>as a cdrom drive
23:46<Arv3n>pretty sure thats what it says.
23:47<majhool>well, ln -s /dev/sdwhatever to /dev/cdrom
