02:09-!-Wolfcastle [] has joined #debian
02:10<Wolfcastle>I'm having problems installing debian on my dell inspiron 1545
02:10<dpkg>[dell] a wonderful company that makes very wonderful laptops, but also some extremely bad laptops. For new ISOs to boot your Dell server, look at, the worst company you could ever do business with, crap,,
02:10<Wolfcastle>the error occurs when entering the partition phase
02:11<Wolfcastle>i see
02:12-!-freealan [] has quit [Quit: leaving]
02:12<jm_>what error?
02:12-!-poncho [~poncho@] has quit [Quit: Saliendo]
02:14-!-shadouts [] has joined #debian
02:14<Wolfcastle>the installer gets stuck
02:14<Wolfcastle>wait let me reproduce it
02:15<jm_>check other tty-s for possible error messages
02:15<enouf>well that 1st url in <dell> is 404
02:15-!-bahatpc [] has joined #debian
02:16<Wolfcastle>yeah saw that
02:17<Wolfcastle>hmm well right now I'm doing a netinstall of ubuntu intrepid
02:17<Wolfcastle>if that doesn't work I'll try debian again
02:17<enouf>what's the hardware anyway? perc?
02:18<sney>no perc on a laptop
02:18-!-ootput [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
02:18<sney>unless they suddenly made them very small
02:18<enouf>who said laptop?
02:19<sney>inspiron has traditionally been dell's laptop model line
02:19<Wolfcastle>don't know about the motherboard
02:19<enouf>htf would i know what dell does traditionally?
02:19<Wolfcastle>but it's an intel core 2 duo
02:20<sney>most IT pros can't avoid it no matter how much we'd prefer to avoid the brand
02:20<Wolfcastle>ig ddr2 800 MHz
02:20<Wolfcastle>sorry 1 GB
02:20<enouf>craptops can have core2duos
02:20<sney>yes but it sacrifices battery power and the ability to put them on your lap
02:20<Wolfcastle>intel gma X4500
02:21<enouf>so much for straight answers :-P
02:21<sney>it's just a regular laptop, probably a design from one of dell's less reputable ODM partners
02:21<sney>some hinky bios thing makes the debian installer hang up is my guess, maybe disable acpi
02:22<Wolfcastle>hmm ok disable acpi, will try that
02:22<enouf>oh .. heh, you're the one with the ODM as designers/suppliers of/to OEMs
02:22<Wolfcastle>i'm guessing acpi=off right?
02:22-!-shadouts [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
02:22<Wolfcastle>so dell is crap huh, wish you could of told me sooner :-p
02:23<Wolfcastle>what brand do you recommend?
02:23<sney>I thought even gamers knew that dell was crap
02:23<enouf>yeah - but that's a hack .. but go ahead ... but hanging at partitioning to me == some sort of disk/controller issues
02:23<sney>hacks are fine for making the installer play nice, you can fix it for real with the actual system
02:24<enouf>fixing acpi=off issues isn't for the faint of heart
02:24<jm_>Wolfcastle: press f1 and other keys at boot prompt to learn about common boot options
02:24-!-AbsintheSyringe [] has joined #debian
02:24<Wolfcastle>there is this weird fat16 partition of about 50 MB
02:24<enouf>let me see you get any-standard-craptop-amenity working properly without it - you might even lose one of those 2 cores
02:24<Wolfcastle>don't know what it contains
02:24<sney>that is probably your recovery partition
02:25<sney>though I'm surprised it's that small
02:25<enouf>or diagnostic fat16 onw
02:25<sney>oh yeah diags might be it
02:25<Wolfcastle>yeah diagnostics might be...I already erased the recovery partition
02:25<Wolfcastle>for swap
02:27<Wolfcastle>so intel core 2 duo is a battery consumer? no wonder my 9-cell battery doesn't last that long
02:27<sney>yeah man it's a pretty powerful cpu
02:27<jm_>Wolfcastle: well they all are, they are pretty good at power efficiency these days
02:28<jm_>(intel cpu-s that is)
02:28-!-nihil [] has joined #debian
02:28<enouf>cpufreqd + laptop-mode + config_no_hz might help that
02:28<jm_>is cpufreqd so much better than powersave or ondemand governor?
02:28-!-eriolsama [~eriolsama@] has joined #debian
02:28<Wolfcastle>enouf: there is an applet in gnome for dynamic frequencies it made me choose one core
02:29<jm_>or rather conservative, not powersave
02:29<enouf>jm_: i'd consider them the same category ... but what do i know
02:31<jm_>can core 2 duo really change frequency for individual core? i thought it can't
02:31<sney>that sounds unlikely
02:32<Wolfcastle>jm_: that's what the applet showed..not sure if that's what happens under the hood
02:32-!-frolic [] has joined #debian
02:33<jm_>looking in /sys the info is a bit weird, related_cpus just mentions the same cpu the info is for
02:35<enouf>i recall reading months ago about features being implemented into the kernel that would allow scaling each core individually - never followed up on it though

03:11<sney>why doesn't debian seem to have xcfe4-power-manager
03:12<bahatpc>I deleted aoetool's conffile /etc/default/aoetools. Now, when I purge and reinstall aoetools, this file does not get created anymore. Any ideas how I could recreate that conffile?
03:12-!-sney [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
03:13<enouf>!+tell bahatpc -about confmiss
03:13<dpkg>told bahatpc about confmiss.

03:14<bahatpc>enouf: excellent, thanks! All I found was dpkg -i --force-*, but I needed an apt frontend for cfengine

03:15<jm_>bahatpc: purged as in dpkg -P or aptitude purge?
03:16<dondelelcaro>xellos: please turn that off
03:16<bahatpc>jm_ first, an accidental delete by a cfengine rule, then a purge
03:16<jm_>bahatpc: hmm in that case reinstalling it should also install config files
03:17<bahatpc>jm_: thats what I thought too (hence the purge before reinstalling), but enouf's tell explaned/resolved the issue

03:19-!-azeem-wo1k is now known as azeem-work
03:19<jm_>bahatpc: that sounds like it wasn't purged
03:20-!-xellos [] has quit [Quit: Ex-Chat]
03:21<bahatpc>jm_: I tried the same thing for two other packages which install files in /etc/default. As soon as the file is changed or deleted, that last state is preserved
03:21-!-majhool [] has joined #debian
03:22<bahatpc>I just thought that --purge would reset that state, but it didn't (and shouldn't what I gathered so far)
03:23<jm_>bahatpc: it does, purge deletes config files
03:25<bahatpc>jm_: yes, but if you deleted them manually beforehand, it judges that act as intentional (you don't want that file at all) and remembers that when reinstalling
03:25<jm_>bahatpc: what is "it"?
03:26<jm_>bahatpc: that's only true (for dpkg) until you purge the package, after that the information is lost
03:26<majhool>i don't think dpkg/apt remembers stuff like that
03:27<majhool>that's the point of --purge, right?
03:27-!-artefact [] has joined #debian
03:27<majhool>the closest to unexpected behavior is if something not explicitly in the package is found in one of the directories that belongs to the package
03:28<majhool>in which case neither the unspecified file nor the directory are removed
03:28<majhool>what's going on with bahatpc ?
03:28-!-alephnull [~alok@] has joined #debian
03:28<bahatpc>here, try this for yourself:
03:28<jm_>that's not purge
03:28<majhool>i actually suffered from this problem myself
03:28<majhool>aptitude purge == apt-get remove --purge
03:29-!-nihil [] has joined #debian
03:29<majhool>aptitude remove --purge == aptitude remove
03:30-!-fede [~fede@] has joined #debian
03:30-!-AbsintheSyringe [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
03:30<majhool>so what's happening is that you tell aptitude to remove aoetools, but not that package's config files
03:30<majhool>so when you delete those config files' directory you surprise aptitude
03:30<bahatpc>jm_, majhool: oh, I think I get the issue...
03:31-!-fede [~fede@] has left #debian []
03:31<majhool>bahatpc: yeah, aptitude and apt-get have just enough of a difference between their syntaxes to screw you over if you just try to pass between the two
03:32<Wolfcastle>why isn't everyone using just aptitude?
03:32<Wolfcastle>what advantage does apt-get really have?
03:32<majhool>Wolfcastle: apt-get/cache is faster on my laptop, but that doesn't prove anything
03:33<jm_>Wolfcastle: it has the advantage it was first :)
03:33<majhool>Wolfcastle: i've been using debian for about 10 years, so i think i like most people who default to apt-get and its syntax are just used to it
03:33<majhool>Wolfcastle: i've been using debian for about 10 years, so i think i like most people who default to apt-get and its syntax are just used to it
03:33<bahatpc>Wolfcastle: I've been using apt-get on etch, and heard the preferred one in lenny is aptitude. So I switched, all confusion and screwups included
03:34-!-alephnull [~alok@] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
03:34<majhool>hopefully my incompetence with the keyboard doesn't give any further impressions :(
03:34<Wolfcastle>hmm ok maybe it's faster
03:35<Wolfcastle>nice debian installation is working on my notebook
03:35<Wolfcastle>i disables acpi
03:36<majhool>so you don't want to change the cpu frequency governor/engage laptop mode/etc when you unplug the ac adapter?
03:36<majhool>why disable acpi?
03:36<Wolfcastle>majhool: It was recommended by someone since installation didn't work
03:36<Wolfcastle>majhool: but I do want to enable it later
03:36<Wolfcastle>majhool: it's possible right?
03:36<majhool>Wolfcastle: i see. what model of laptop do you run?
03:36<majhool>Wolfcastle: absolutely
03:36<Wolfcastle>majhool: dell inspiron
03:37<Wolfcastle>i know i know....crap right?
03:37<jm_>Wolfcastle:you could try a newer kernel
03:37<majhool>Wolfcastle: do you know what in particular makes it infeasible to run acpi?
03:37<Wolfcastle>majhool: not really, I also skipped configuring the network...maybe that was the problem
03:38<majhool>Wolfcastle: well, if it works for you i suppose it's not a problem. i'm guessing you mean wireless network, unless you're not using the laptop right now
03:38-!-gomoran [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
03:39<majhool>Wolfcastle: you should investigate jm_'s advice and investigate kernel backports
03:39<Wolfcastle>majhool: no, i mean wired network, it's connected to my computer
03:39<Wolfcastle>hmm yes might just do that...but it's risky to use another kernel is it not?
03:39<jm_>naah, it will keep your current kernel installed so you can always boot with it
03:40<majhool>yeah debian Does The Right Thing by default
03:40<majhool>it's not fedora
03:40<majhool>i actually just put 2.6.29 on my laptop running squeeze tonight
03:41<Wolfcastle>majhool: do you have to compile the kernel? or do you use one from sid?
03:41<bahatpc>thanks again for the help!
03:41<majhool>it's pretty painless, but read up on the pertinent docs before doing installing as drivers result in device configuration differences
03:41-!-bahatpc [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
03:42<majhool>Wolfcastle: it depends. you should first try one from sid using a backport mirror and figure out if it's going to work for you
03:42<majhool>Wolfcastle: the idea being that compiling the kernel yourself should be a last resort
03:42<Wolfcastle>majhool: I should hope so

03:43<Wolfcastle>majhool: any link explaining the process? would be appreciated
03:44-!-n3cro [~emilm23@] has left #debian []
03:45<jm_>Wolfcastle: the easiest would be to get 2.6.29 source package from sid and build it yourself
03:45<jm_>(as far as building goes that is)
03:46<majhool>jm_: can he use kernel backport repositories?
03:47<jm_>majhool: probably a better choice
03:49<majhool>Wolfcastle: you can try adding the following line to sources.list, aptitude updating & upgrading
03:49<majhool>deb ./
03:49<Wolfcastle>wow seems easy, thanx
03:49-!-freely [] has joined #debian
03:49<Wolfcastle>I'll try that as soon as my install is ready
03:50<majhool>yeah, but don't blame me if everything breaks. or, for that matter

08:13<jm_>tofix: ps auxw|grep ' D '

10:51<djc>locklace, well, i mainly just need to setup a bit of port forwarding between a debian host and a freebsd vbox guest.. I suspect iptables will do
10:52<locklace>you can do that much more easily without resorting to iptables
10:52<djc>of course, since I still need to build said debian host, im not actually configuring iptables just now..
10:52<djc>some reason I thought iptables was the primary way of doing that

11:38<djc>on a real nic, boot rom is a physical chip on the pcboard.. on a virtual nic, its just emulated by the virtual machine
11:38<djc>its noth something you have to 'find'
11:39<iiv>It should be placed in /usr/share/qemu
11:39<djc>what should be?

11:40-!-manel [~neito@] has quit [Quit: Saliendo]
11:40<djc>a 'boot rom' is part of a nic. for a real nic, its a physical chip. for a virtual nic, it is also 'virtual', and would be part of the virtualization of a nic build into the virtual machine
11:41<djc>now, beyond the boot rom, you also need a network boot server, that the machines BIOS can access via network to get bootstrap code from for whatever OS you want to netboot
11:41<djc>bootp and/or tftp
11:41<djc>you still havent answered what you are trying to netboot for
11:41<djc>are you trying to install an OS?
11:41<djc>or have a working machine that boots from network?
11:41<iiv>But why when i try qemu that No valid PXE rom found for network device
11:42<djc>back up a bit.. whats the big picture.. what are you trying to do?
11:42<themill>iiv: by default, qemu uses a NE2000 adapter not an rtl8139.
11:42<djc>themill, but regardless, whatever it uses will be built in, and integrated into its virtual BIOS.. not something you need to download seperately
11:43<themill>djc: quite.

11:46<djc>and as an aside, if you are on a x86 platform, you might find VirtualBOX easier to use than qemu
11:47<iiv>djc: the problem in qemu, i set all properly

12:01<djc>urbinek, on a reasonably modern *nix system, you can have several hundreds of users logged in at once and they could all be copying files at once
12:02<themill>enouf: just that window
12:02<urbinek>Gathond: what do you mean ?
12:02<enouf>themill: thank goodness i never tried copying windows explorer style in that piece of dung :-P
12:02<djc>some users could even be logged in multiple times from multiple terminals
12:02<djc>heck even on an *old* *nix system
12:03<urbinek>djc: i know, but i'm telling how it is, when i/m coping one file i cant copy another
12:03<themill>it has its place, such as working with deep fs hierarchies, complicated file/dir names or working across unmounted/virtual filesystems (smb, sftp etc)
12:03<kop>Maybe hes got his md fs-s mounted sync?
12:03<Gathond>urbinek: I mean that cp will be a serial operation, but you are free to start as many as your system can handle in parallel
12:03<djc>urbinek, that is almost certainly a limitation of the kde/gui UI tool you are using
12:03<Gathond>urbinek: most default systems probably tend to get bogged down rather quickly as most disk systems are not really build for massive parallel operation
12:03<themill>urbinek: testing this with konqueror is a poor test of the situation.
12:03<urbinek>Gathond: i've checket it as djc says
12:04<urbinek>the-dude: i've got this only on konqueror...
12:04<Gathond>urbinek: but you are not doing this with cp
12:04<urbinek>and i quite like doing this that way
12:04<djc>themill, sftp is just silly, I would use sshfs. and smb... ugh
12:05<Gathond>whether the UI of a given program allows that I have no Idea, I'm in the terminal prompt club:)
12:05<djc>urbinek, fyi konqueror is primarily a web browser.. I think even in kde there is a better icon-based file manager
12:05<themill>djc: one doesn't always have the flexibility to choose.
12:06<bja>themill: One has allways the choice to learn
12:06<djc>if you can use sftp you can use sshfs
12:06<the-dude>urbinek: que?
12:06<djc>and one can choose not to use smb
12:06<themill>bja: but not necessarily the choice of protocols on a server
12:06<djc>at least, this 'one' does
12:06<bja>themill 1 bja 0
12:06<urbinek>djc: i used to it so i don't wanna any other file manganers( i hate dolphin) and besides, it worked with non-raid disks ...
12:06<urbinek>the-dude: ?
12:07<themill>djc: right... one can choose not to have access to one's files that are on a server that is only exposing smb...

12:09<urbinek>both ways
12:10<themill>urbinek: until you try with some other tool than konqueror, everyone is going to tell you that it's konqueror's fault and nothing to do with mdadm.
12:10<urbinek>enouf: the only thing i've changes is enabling mdadm raid0

12:18<djc>But neither is really appropriate for someone who is likely to suspect mdadm as the cause for konqueror not being able to have two copy operations at the same time
12:18-!-phrosty [] has joined #debian

12:19<bja>Anyone has another problem with more data and less flame?
12:19<urbinek>i;m using konqueror to mangane files in all ways (?)
12:19<urbinek>ech... ok
12:19<urbinek>quite bothering from me
12:20<enouf>themill: what am i doing wrong here? "judd pciid [10de:1141]"
12:20<themill>enouf: either lose the [ and ] or put the pciid string in quotes. (it's a supybot syntax thing....)
12:21-!-mode/#debian [+l 411] by debhelper
12:21<themill>enouf: (supybot treats [ ] like sh treats $(...) which is fine unless you want to use them in a query like that)
12:21<enouf>themill: and should i try something like judd help to help me recall? .. oh crap themill , i had recalled it backwards; requiring the brackets :-)

12:21<enouf>i see themill thanks

12:22<andy>how this chat works
12:22<enouf>themill: gotcha
12:22<andy>can i ask something bout linux here?
12:23<enouf>urbinek: FWIW,what kioslave are you using? i mean, in the address/location bar, what;s the address start with? any one of these?
12:23<ml|>!tell andy -about ask

12:24<enouf>and there was once a ##linux-help there or something too

12:36<bja>dr|z3d: thanks
12:36<dr|z3d>bja: Also see https:/
12:36<pasoev>And what I have to do in rescue mode?
12:37<djc>Jeffro, if /home is on its own partition, then first save contents of /etc somwhere (usb key?) and also any persona files *not* in /home
12:37<djc>then install new version, but tell it *NOT* to format /home
12:37<djc>might not be a bad idea to back up first
12:37<djc>anotehr safe alternative is to get a new HD, swap hd's install new version to new HD
12:37<sci>hans: mailbox is full, phone is not answering, server is unreachable. where are you bum ?

12:39<Jeffro>I am trying damn hard to get eggdrop working on it but I can't install tcl because libc6 is too old but I cant update libc6 because debian is too old Q_Q
12:39<djc>assuming physical space to mount them
12:39<djc>Jeffro, what version of debian ?
12:39<Jeffro>This only has 1 channel.
12:39<Jeffro>command too see version?
12:39<barry>all: would anyone happen to know why swap would be maxed while memory is not and cpu usage would be 100% with multiple cores?
12:39<ootput>Jeffro: debian is a dinosaur
12:40<bja>locklace: Help a friend
12:40<djc>oic.. well.. you could get a new drive, swap them, install on new drive.. then use a usb<->ide adapter to copy files from old drive
12:40<dr|z3d>barry: htop might shed some light.

12:42<barry>valdyn: ootput: there were no responsible processes which is odd, made me thing cpu temp is high causing throttling
12:42<Jeffro>I never bothered to update because everything worked ok
12:42<Jeffro>UNTIL I tried to install eggdrop,
12:42<djc>the safest thing is to save your files, and do a fresh install of lenny
12:43<ml|>Jeffro: good time for a fresh install
12:43<Jeffro>is it possible to do everything through network?
12:43<Jeffro>I don't have a old vga adaptor for my monitor atm xD
12:43<valdyn>Jeffro: yes
12:43<djc>'save your files' can be by removing the hd and putting another in its place, or by copying them to some other storage, or (if you have a seperate /home), telling new install to not format

12:43<valdyn>Jeffro: sarge -> etch -> lenny
12:44<djc>or if you have tons of bandwidth and a cd burner, download the primary cd image for etch and for lenny
12:44<ootput>Jeffro: ie you can fetch updated deb packages at a different computer station
12:44<valdyn>Jeffro: and upgrade to sarge first if you are not sure that you are really running a final sarge release version
12:44<ootput>provided it has wget, of course
12:44<dpkg>i guess oldstable is the previous stable version of Debian, as long as it is still supported by the security team. Etch (4.0) is now oldstable. Ask me about <oldstable security> and consider upgrading your boxes from oldstable to stable (ask me about <oldstable->stable>).
12:44<djc>in fact you should apply all sarge updates first
12:44<valdyn>!debian archive
12:44<dpkg>extra, extra, read all about it, debian archive is debian has archives of no-longer-supported releases at and old versions of packages can be found at
12:44<djc>a fresh install might be simpler

14:20<wnd>asaleem, I know this doesn't solve the issue completely, but perhaps you should consider having others to use sudo for things like that. caveat with sudo is that either you have to list all commands people are allowed to run, or if all commands are allowed, face the fact that someone will run "sudo su" sooner rather than later.

15:41<ootput>asaleem: what's the error message from scp?
15:41<mjt>wug. scp just uses ssh as a transport, in exactly the same way as interactive login. It's not 'scp' that has some config files, it's ssh/sshd.

15:42<mjt>Seattle_Mike: that's wrong. symlinks are there, client can see them just fine. For "submounts" yes, but that's controlled by subtree_check export option.
15:42<asaleem>ootput, then I receive "Permission denied (publickey,keyboard-interactive)."
15:43<ootput>how are you invoking scp
15:43<mjt>asaleem: that's, really, a wrong password

15:52<Seattle_Mike>mjt: I don't have an etch server ... but I'm thinking of going with EtchnHalf.
15:52<sney>the last time I used debian extensively, etch was testing
15:52<mjt>that way we'll go nowhere.
15:53<mjt>Seattle_Mike: i expect something like that: on nfs server in exported directory i've a symlink named 'foo'. When I do `ls -l foo' on client i see this: `...', but I expect to see something like this: `...'
15:54<Seattle_Mike>mjt: Well I'm getting pretty desperate . My etch server ran for years w/o problem. That's Apache, NFS, Samba, gnump3d

17:14<dr|z3d>After? sudo shutdown -h 0 shutsdown, as opposing a restart.
17:14<ed_debian>if I run sudo shutdown now

17:19<locklace>ed_debian: so double-check, "lsmod | grep via"

17:21-!-amnesiauk [] has joined #debian

17:22<locklace>ed_debian: ok you may have to modprobe -r mii first in step 2

17:52<ed_debian>the permissions are root read & write on user and group. It is executable
17:52<mjt>it should be SNN... or KNN...

18:35<locklace>Zviper: if you have a half-upgraded system due to errors, a lot of other things are probably wrong too
18:35<Pitxyoki>Or, even better: dpkg-reconfigure -fgnome console-data
18:35<Zviper>i don't think it was half wrong
18:36<Zviper>maybe like 3/4 upgraded
18:36<locklace>Zviper: you should get out of X and sort out the rest of the upgrade, get yourself 100% in sync
18:37<Zviper>how would i start off?
18:37<locklace>Zviper: make sure your apt and dpkg tools are synced first, then aptitude full-upgrade
18:37<Zviper>pretty sure dpkg fucked up somewhere
18:37<locklace>and make sure your /etc/apt/sources.list is correct
18:37<abrotman>did you read the release notes first ?

18:41<abrotman>dpkg: etch->lenny
18:41<dpkg>Read the release notes, ask me about <lenny release notes>. Ensure your Etch installation is up to date (aptitude update; aptitude dist-upgrade). Edit your /etc/apt/sources.list and change all non-local mentions of "etch" to "lenny". aptitude update; aptitude install aptitude; aptitude safe-upgrade; aptitude full-upgrade. Also ask about <apt-listbugs>, <etch->lenny key>.
18:42<Zviper>oo i didn't do safe-upgrade
18:42<abrotman>you didn't aptitude install aptitude either ?
18:42<Zviper>i think i already did that
18:42<Zviper>way before
18:42<abrotman>you can't do it way before .. you have to do it after you change your sources

18:53<deniz>does having a home partition instead of a home directory help make it easier to restore my OS if something goes wrong? like can i reinstall the OS without reinstalling a home partition and using the one of a previous install? if so, can i do this as of lenny?
18:54<locklace>deniz: it has some advantages like that, yes
18:54<abrotman>deniz: yes, if you tell the installer not to format it
18:54-!-EagleScreen [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]

18:57-!-kristianpaul [~kristianp@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
18:57<locklace>deniz: it depends on exactly how you're doing the install/upgrade, but if you're using a typical installer image, you will want to select the options that let you lay out your partitions and filesystems manually, and then make filesystems on the other partitions but not the home partition, and then declare the home partition for mounting under the mountpoint name "/home"
18:58<locklace>deniz: or alternatively just be sure you don't repartition or mkfs the /home partition anywhere in the installer, and then arrange to mount that partition under /home once you're up and running with the new os
18:59<deniz>locklace, so if i just dont use a home partition or directory at all, then i cant write long-term files onto my desktop, etc?

22:35<adama>how do I force a package to be kept back, never to be upgraded (until I say so)
22:36<dpkg>hold is probably a status flag that tells the package manager not to automatically upgrade a package. To hold a package: 'echo <package> hold|dpkg --set-selections'. It is also possible to use aptitude: 'aptitude hold <package>'. Notice that the hold flag set using aptitude might be ignored by other package managers (ie Update Manager and Synaptic) but that aptitude will respect the hold set in the dpkg database. Ask me about <why aptitude>.
22:37<abrotman>or you can use the preferences file if you can figure out the syntax

23:01<Golfgeo>xorg btw
23:03<dpkg>extra, extra, read all about it, .xinitrc is actually ~/.xinitrc, which is used for running X as startx, and ~/.xsession is for when using X from a Display Manager like xdm or kdm. .xinitrc is discouraged in Debian, as if you just use ~/.xsession it will work from both startx and the display manager, as documented in startx(1)
23:03*gravity would be very surprised if it weren't xorg
23:04<abrotman>or something like the package choosewm
