00:20<enouf>magyar_: alsaconf is gone in testing and sid
00:20<R_YoYo_R>i used debian as my server and found myself using it so much i threw it on my laptop
00:21<enouf>no idea what replaces it, but nothing as far as i;m told - it's like the X autoconfig
00:21<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>. See also
00:22<enouf>that ISA shit is such bullshit ..!
00:22<R_YoYo_R>no kidding
00:23<enouf>if that were even remotely true; it never would'
00:23<enouf>ve been able to config things within a 32bit VFS env
00:24<dpkg>oss is, like, an acronym for Open Source Software that is ironically the acronym referring to 'Open Sound Systems', some very <non-free> and non-open-source software. It is also Online SAP Support. SAP is VERY non-free. ( for OSS) or an acronym coined by Vinod Valipollil in the <Halloween> document. the "standard" audio drivers in the 2.2-2.4 series of Linux kernels (see <ALSA> for 2.6 info). OldSchoolSound

03:59<Guest1520>Where are you from?
04:00<hachi>I've edited /etc/console-tools/config to set both the BLANK_TIME and POWERDOWN_TIME to be 0, to try and make my screen always stay on.... but even after rebooting it still sleeps after a couple minutes
04:00<hachi>anyone know what is actually doing this?
04:01-!-Guest1520 [~debian@] has left #debian [Leaving]
04:01<pawel>how to unmount /media/disk1 which is /dev/sda4 ?
04:02<aardvarX>should be unmount /media/disk1
04:02<wnd>umount, not unmount
04:02<aardvarX>or umount /media/disk1
04:07<hachi>okay, how do you find documentation on screen blanking in linux, when I'm not talking about X
04:07<hachi>everything I find is how to fix screen blanking under X
04:08-!-binbash [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
04:08<hachi>you told me that last night
04:08<aardvarX>you might look at your own bios maybe, have you tried turning off drm
04:08<hachi>and then you said console-tools
04:08<hachi>but I edited the config in console tools and rebooted
04:11<duraperidol>it's quiet
04:12<pawel>I have file with many lines. How to execute a program with each line with this line as a parameter?
04:12<hachi>if there are no spaces in the lines
04:12<hachi>you could do
04:12<hachi>for i in `cat file.txt`; do something $i; done
04:14<valdyn>while read i; do something "$i"; done < file.txt
04:14<valdyn>and you probably really want to use those double apostrophes
04:15<Supaplex>they grow hair on your chest. leaving them out might lead to sudden ripping of chest hair out.

04:33<hachi>sure, but... I was also checking the second half of what you said
04:34-!-xing [~xing@] has joined #debian
04:34<hachi>I don't have any SCREEN_FONT lines set
04:34<jddurand>hachi: fine, do you have the program /bin/setupcon on your system ?
04:34-!-nozzy123nozzy [] has joined #debian
04:35<hachi>but I see no debian package that provides that file
04:36<hachi>oh, no
04:36<hachi>package search was lieing
04:36<dpkg>supaplex, i am incapable of lying, or knoppix is better than debian
04:36*Supaplex hides
04:36<Supaplex>say it ain't so!
04:36<pawel>why "if [[ $(cat file.txt | grep text -c) != 0 ]]; then" is not working?
04:37<hachi>jddurand: should I be using console-setup instaed of console-tools?
04:37<Supaplex>pawel: are you comparing exit code? if ! grep -qc text file.txt ; then ...
04:38-!-goodger_ [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
04:39<xing>can I use the xserver-xorg-video-i810 for intel 845 video card instead of xserver-xorg-video-intel?
04:39-!-reneger [] has joined #debian
04:39<Supaplex>pawel: as you've written it, you expect the comparison of a literal 0 to equal the output grep might produce. that'll never pass, as a non match would be empty, and a match would be something other than just 0.
04:39<jddurand>I am on unstable up-to-date, console-setup is a dependency of xserver-xorg - recent updates installed this package and I got again the console flickering because of it
04:39<patrikf>xing: why would you want to do that?
04:39<patrikf>iirc, i810 is outdated

04:41<jddurand>hachi: if you have console-setup install, please comment the lines I told you - if you have (only or not) console-tools, then in the console you'll probably if this is the guitly package by executing it
04:41<pawel>I'm not comparing exit code, 'cat file.txt | grep text -c' should return number of times 'text' occurs in file.txt, and I want to check if 'text' is in file
04:42<jddurand>hachi: e.g. [root] % sh -v /etc/init.d/ restart
04:42<hachi>first off
04:42<hachi>the lines you said are already commented out
04:42<hachi>and have been this whole time
04:42<hachi>BLANK_TIME=0 BLANK_DPMS=off
04:43<hachi>are all I have set
04:43<hachi>second... guilty package by executing it?
04:43<locklace>pawel: you win today's "useless use of cat" award
04:43<jddurand>go to the console and try executing sh -v /etc/init.d/ restart - just to see
04:43<hachi>I've rebooted many times
04:44<hachi>the init script is run at boot
04:44-!-manphiz_ is now known as manphiz
04:44<hachi>not that I need to reboot more than once, but... I've already rebooted
04:44<aardvarX> have you tried turning off dpms in the bios?
04:44<hachi>and yes, I've rerun the script
04:44<hachi>aardvarX: it's not on
04:45<hachi>if I execute setterm -blank 0
04:45<jddurand>hachi: nothing prevent to run this script again and again interactively - when I say console I mean Alt-F1, and ou return to X with Alt-F7 - I do not mean a root login in a X console
04:45<hachi>it stops blanking the screen
04:45<hachi>I'm just trying to get it to do this by default
04:45<hachi>I don't want to have to run that anytime I reboot
04:45<hachi>X isn't even running
04:45<hachi>X isn't even installed

04:50<pawel>Why "if [[ $(grep text file.txt -c) != 0 ]]; then" is not working? 'grep text file.txt -c' should return number of times 'text' occurs in file.txt, and I want to do something if 'text' is in file.
04:50<jddurand>hachi: then insert that in /etc/init.d/ - if you look to that script you will see many possible workaround... a brutal one being to rename /usr/bin/consolechars to e.g. /usr/bin/

04:54<Panarchy>ah, I see. Just as I though
04:54-!-Panarchy [] has left #debian []
04:54<locklace>pawel: != doesn't do what you think it does
04:55<pawel>than what is the operator for 'IS NOT'
04:55<patrikf>pawel: the code you give works for me
04:56<patrikf>pawel: although "if grep -q text file.txt" would be simpler
04:57<Supaplex>!uuog pawel
04:57*dpkg gives pawel the Useless Use of Grep Award
04:57<Supaplex>pawel: ahh, I was mistaken. btw, run "help test" from (assuming bash), or man [.
04:57<xing>patrikf :is it possible to replace the intel driver with the i810?
04:57<jddurand>pawel: != is for strings, so you want != or == "" depending on your need, patrickf is rhight anyway: grep -q ... 2>/dev/null is the way to go if you do not mind about the output
04:57<Supaplex>pawel: if != isn't it, it might be "ne"
04:58-!-goodger_ [] has joined #debian
04:58<patrikf>jddurand: you forget that he's using grep -c
04:58<pawel>it does not matter
04:59<pawel>I just wanted to check if some text is in file.
04:59<jddurand>patrickf: yes, apologizes
04:59<Supaplex>if grep -q text file.txt would be true if there are matches. no need to complicate it further. :)
05:01<Supaplex>and it'll complete faster, because it'll exit as soon as it finds a match. (more efficient)

05:14<pier>hi all
05:15<locklace>quitte: seems pretty pointless to me
05:15<pier>i have a question
05:15<locklace>!tell pier about ask
05:15<pier>at work we would like to install nagios plus some sort of snmp checks
05:15<pier>i was thinking about cacti...but also munin is interesting
05:16<pier>what would you suggest?
05:16<locklace>pier: you'll have better luck with that question on a networking channel
05:16<quitte>locklace: it is needed by gdm
05:17<pier>is there on debian irc a networking channel?
05:17<locklace>quitte: that's great
05:17<locklace>pier: try #cisco on freenode
05:18<locklace>or ##networking there iirc
05:18<quitte>yes. except that the link for some reason isn't created for the live system im building with live-helper. same problem with the gconftool. and i can't figure out why.

08:55<violina>sure. i'll try.
08:55<locklace>ArSeN: what
08:56<ArSeN>Look, I created an entry in the crontab for 2 o'clock, it was executed well, now I changed the time of execution and it doesn't get executed anymor..
08:56<ArSeN>I'm wondering why
08:56<violina>no error messages now
08:56<jMCg>I wonder how well a debian kernel will build -- or even patch with this patchset:
08:56<locklace>violina: so your "aptitude update" succeeded?
08:57<xing>can anyone help me to solve the printer problem?
08:57<locklace>jMCg: you can build your own kernel straight from the sources with whatever patches you want.
08:58<locklace>ArSeN: because you messed something up?
08:58<locklace>xing: could you be more vague?
08:58<dantti>hi, i'm a bit lost about a s2disk problem i'd like to help find the problem but i don't know if i should fill a bug report. the suspend 2 disk happens but does not turn off my pc, and it returns to the saved state without problens, seems it's not calling the proper acpi methods..
08:58<ArSeN>locklace: I didn't change anything but the crontab...
08:58<violina>yes. strange. don't understand why I have problems with cdroms in the list when I added them with apt-cdrom add
08:58<ArSeN>locklace: plus... do I have to respect something working with the root crontab?
08:59<locklace>violina: suggest doing an aptitude safe-upgrade/full-upgrade to get yourself in sync, then maybe try with the dvd entries again
09:00<violina>safe or full upgrade?
09:00<jMCg>locklace: yeah, but I *like* the Debian Kernel's patchset... I just want it to include dom0 support.
09:00<locklace>ArSeN: why don't you paste your crontab and the output of "grep -i cron /var/log/syslog"
09:01<locklace>ArSeN: and the info about which file(s) you're changing and any other cron-related commands or files you're messing with
09:01<locklace>violina: do safe-upgrade first, then "aptitude -s full-upgrade" to simulate a full upgrade and make sure it looks sane; if it does, do it again without the -s
09:02<locklace>jMCg: well, try the patch; the patch utility will tell you clearly if there are any conflicts
09:02<violina>ok i'm already running safe-upgrade
09:04<violina>what will happen with kernel after upgrade? is it included? i'll get a new version of kernel?

09:24<jMCg>montel: that doesn't make sense. The reason to make a .deb is to install it globally, to have it tracked in the package store -- the store to which you need root permission to write/install to -- so installing a .deb in a user directory is pretty far beside the point.
09:24<jMCg>Beside several points.

09:43<dpkg>rumour has it, fetchmail is ESR's pet POP/IMAP client. It fetches mail from the server then hands it over to the local mda. or a tool that can use ESMTP ETRN extension or most frequently broken by not having a working MTA on the local machine. or most frequently fixed by reading the fetchmail manpage.
09:43<stuckey>I ran fetchmail and it deleted my emails from the imap server... but the e-mails are no where to be found on my computer.

09:48<jMCg>stuckey: did you have an MTA installed on the system?
09:48<stuckey>jMCg: I don't know... I only installed fetchmail.

10:05<stuckey>djc: wow thanks... I see them!
10:05<stuckey>Yes, I what do I do with this now?

10:06<stuckey>djc: okay so now do I read the message though?
10:06<stuckey>djc: and how do I fix this thing so that it delivers message to me? instead of doing it like this?
10:06<djc>what is the recipient address?
10:06<djc>is it an address that your system knows how to deliver to?
10:06<djc>is it a valid address? if its local, does the user account exist?
10:07-!-Sergej [] has joined #debian
10:07<stuckey>Wait, how do I view the messages first?
10:07<djc>you can try to force a delivery for a given message, and exim should give you some feedback about how its trying to deliver, and why it cant
10:07<djc>they havent been delivered yet. you want to get them delivered
10:08<djc>take one of the message id,s and run:
10:08<themill>stuckey: in addition to what djc is asking, you probably want to look at how you've got exim configured (e.g. smarthost + no local delivery would cause this problem)

10:11<djc>if that isnt a domain that you own/control, then your system will want to deliver it elsewhere.. it also doesnt appear to be setup to do so, eg, no smarthost.. but wether thats the 'right' thing to do depends on where that message came from

10:15<djc>stuckey, ok, one sec
10:15<djc>type 'groups' at a command line and see if 'scanner' shows up.. if not, then you need to fully log out and back in
10:15<stuckey>I just installed fetchmail and ran it... I thought this would retreieve my emails for me from the imap server.
10:16<djc>stuckey, ok, that is a 'bounce message'.. exim was trying to deliver some message, but was unable to and is trying to return it to sender.. but it cant do that either, so it froze the message
10:16<stuckey>djc: the email in question is one I sent to myself ( in case that helps).
10:16<djc>fetchmail isnt point and click.. you need to configure it
10:17<djc>both about how to access a pop/imap box, and also what to do with messages once it has them
10:17<stuckey>djc: okay so would you tell me how I can correct this? I just want to be able to use mutt to access my university email.
10:17<djc>and exim needs to be setup to be able to accept them, and also know what to do with them (if you setup fetchmail to send them to exim)
10:17<Gluck>dpkg, the problem, as I see it, is not in SANE. SANE's FAQ says that in that exact case I have to set up permissions. I just don't get, permissions to which device. Device /usb/psc_1100_series?serial=MY431G70N6B0 does not exist, and neither does /usb at all.
10:17<dpkg>Gluck: what are you talking about?
10:17-!-Sergej [] has joined #debian
10:17<djc>to be honest, it might be simpler just to tell mutt about your imap account

10:20<stuckey>djc: I thought I needed fetchmail to get the mail first... but this isn't necessary you say?
10:20<Gluck>djc, I tried it before.
10:21<ml|>stuckey: for imap ....
10:21<djc>stuckey, if you have an imap account, you can access it just like you would any other, with an imap client
10:21<djc>im not familiar with mutt
10:21<dpkg>rumour has it, mutt is the official mailer of Debian GNU/Linux ( or better than <pine> or with message threading, built-in <PGP> support, and more config options than you can count, or check out, or more free than pine, or a quick beginner's guide ("My First Mutt") is available from, or #mutt @
10:21<Gluck>djc, do you have any idea where the device hpaio:/usb/psc_1100_series?serial=MY431G70N6B0 can be found?
10:21<djc>try some of that info
10:21<ComradeHaz>guys, is there a debian-gnome channel enywhere?
10:21<djc>Gluck, what does scanimage -L give?
10:21<stuckey>djc: what do you use to get your mail?
10:21<Gluck>djc, hpaio:/usb/psc_1100_series?serial=MY431G70N6B0
10:22<djc>Gluck, its a usb device - if you are in the scanner group you should have access to it.. if yu have a tuner, its possible xsane is just picking the first device, rather than looking for another
10:22<djc>Gluck, what does scanimage -L give?
10:22<djc>stuckey, gmail
10:22<stuckey>djc: no gmail
10:22<stuckey>djc: So what's fetchmail and sendmail for?
10:22<ml|>those should help

10:22<djc>for running a mailserver
10:22-!-dr|z3d [~dr|] has joined #debian
10:23<stuckey>djc: what's the benefit of that?
10:23<djc>they are *server* programs
10:23<djc>for running a mailserver
10:23<Gluck>djc, in root-mode it does see both tuner and scanner, but in user mode it sees only the tuner.
10:23<bremner>djc, stuckey: fetchmail is for clients, it makes a local copy of mail.
10:23<djc>I use gmail (not over imap, I like the gmail interface)
10:23<djc>well.. fetchmail is a client that then feeds mail to a local server
10:24<djc>it has its uses, but to be honest, you will probably find it a lot simpler just to setup mutt to access your imap account
10:24<Gluck>djc, again, how to check permissions of the device hpaio:/usb/psc_1100_series?serial=MY431G70N6B0, do you have any glue?
10:24<stuckey>bremner: so I could just use mutt with imap?
10:24<stuckey>and that's all I'd need?
10:24<bremner>stuckey: sure

10:35<stuckey>perhaps that's because it uses ssl?

11:13<spozen>yeah its the same with openvpn but sometimes the VPN host can go down

12:32<narma>Hello, I want to install debian from the 'network install cd'. I only have a USB cdrom. It boots, but after it can't find the cdrom even if I 'modprob sr_mod' which is the appropriate driver I think. Do you have an idea to detect the device ? thanks

12:47<dpkg>hmm... build-essential is a package designed to help you create executables and build Debian packages. If you get errors saying gcc cannot create executables or can't find header files like stdio.h, you need to "aptitude install build-essential". If you don't plan to compile things, you don't need this package. Ask me about <qotd49>.

12:49<ed_debian>tommi69_, LOL so I wrote a python app ( .py extension) and in order to run it I have to run ./ and it has to be executable how do I make it run like a package I got from the repos. Like just run "firefox"
12:49<bzed>ed_debian: aah. put it into /usr/local/bin, for example
12:50<bzed>or inany other directory in $PATH, but you should stick with /usr/local for files which do not come from the package manager
12:50<ed_debian>bzed, But it isn't a binary file?
12:51<ed_debian>I am trying it
12:51<azeem>ed_debian: if you look at "/usr/bin/firefox", it's not a binary either
12:52<ed_debian>azeem, IC I guess I assumed because of the path name

12:57<ed_debian>jamuraa, You don't need 16GB
12:57<jamuraa>I'm also not getting why it's a bad idea
12:57-!-RedMaw [] has left #debian [Leaving]
12:58<ml|>jamuraa: 2gb is plenty
12:58<stuckey>IS there a way I can compile a program from source using simgear 1.9.0 in lenny? (lenny has version 1.0.0 and the program in question needs version 1.9.0)
12:58<drakeman>16gb of swap? wow
12:58<stuckey>Without screwing up my stable stystem?
12:58<azeem>stuckey: make a backport
12:58<stuckey>azeem: how do I do this?
12:58<ed_debian>azeem, How do you get a python app to run in a windows xp environment?
12:58<jamuraa>2gb is fine even if I have 8gb of memory?
12:58<azeem>ed_debian: why do you ask me?
12:58<azeem>I don't run XP
12:58<ed_debian>azeem, You seemed to know lol
12:59<ml|>jamuraa: yes more than enough
12:59<azeem>ed_debian: in any case, ask an XP channel
12:59<jamuraa>I've always did 2x ram before, but this machine has a ludicrous amount of ram
12:59<ed_debian>azeem, Ok thanks I didn't know there where any
12:59<azeem>jamuraa: it's better to have 2GB than nothing
12:59<patrikf>what's so bad about having no swap?
12:59<ml|>jamuraa: you can make it smaller if you like
12:59<drakeman>well, create a swap file, :D
12:59<azeem>ed_debian: I don't know if there are, I just know your question is not a propos here
12:59<drakeman>slower, but works.
12:59<ml|>but 2gb is good
13:00<azeem>patrikf: e.g. you can't suspend to disk
13:00<jamuraa>if I make a swap file on the HD (no partition space left) will it work in fstab?
13:00<jamuraa>azeem: I can't suspend my 8gb of ram to 2gb of disk anyway...
13:00<patrikf>azeem: yeah... but apart from that, I don't see any issues

13:02<jamuraa>ed_debian: that article doesn't make sense. the whole system is not likely to crash because a malloc() call returns false. and there's the OOM killer too. it's definitely more complicated than "the system will crash"
13:02<patrikf>and swap cannot prevent that...
13:03<patrikf>doesn't matter whether you have 4 GB of RAM and no swap or 2 GB of RAM and 2 GB swap
13:03<jamuraa>and yea, you can easily run out of memory + swap

13:05<ed_debian>jamuraa, If you don't have swap and you run out of memory your system will crash.
13:05<patrikf>ed_debian: why should it?
13:05<patrikf>ed_debian: and why should that be different when you have swap and run out of memory (including swap)?
13:06<ed_debian>oops sorry guys I had some lag and I didn't see that you were saying things to me.
13:07<ed_debian>patrikf, From what I understand if you run out of all available memory your system will crash whether that be all of your ram with no swap or all of your ram and swap together etc etc
13:07-!-byk [~byk@] has joined #debian
13:07<ed_debian>patrikf, But it is extremely unlikely that will happen especially if you have a lot of either one
13:07-!-methodman [~methodman@] has joined #debian
13:07<patrikf>ed_debian: well, if everything goes right, then only the app that uses most memory will crash (i.e. be killed by the kernel oom killer)
13:08<azeem>I thought there's no oom killer anymore these days
13:08<jamuraa>ed_debian: so by your account, my 8gb of ram should be the same as my previous 4gb ram + 4gb swap, and I don't need swap then :P
13:08<azeem>I think this discussion is going in circles now
13:09<ed_debian>jamuraa, That is my understanding. Except that ram is faster than swap.
13:09<patrikf>azeem: there's no oom killer anymore? where did you get that from?
13:09<jamuraa>sorry I really just wondered, aside from software suspend, if I needed swap for some other fundamental reason other than "you might run out of memory"
13:09<InkBottle>Hi, it's question about how kernel modules are usually loaded: I've installed 'nvidia nouveau' driver from source. It goes like that: compile drm, make install (drm), insmod drm.ko; insmod nouveau.ko; compile nouveau; make install nouveau. My question is, each time I boot up, I have to do the insmod(s) again. What would be the right way to do?
13:10<azeem>InkBottle: put them into /etc/modules
13:10<jamuraa>InkBottle: you can put the modules into your /etc/modules file, which will load the files at boot

13:55<Silicium01>hey guys, I am following the to install Debian on Acer One netbook, but the second linek to netiso image is dead, so I'm getting one from Debian site, but the manual says the kernel image version in "drive image" must match kernel image in "netinst iso image". How do I ensure that they match?

14:11<Br4z3r>Hi, I just installed Debian lenny on my laptop( asus f5sl ) and I don't have sound, I installed alsa-utils alsa-tools, I did the alsaconf command and I still don't have sound, when I play a mp3 it plays it but I don't hear anything

14:12<Br4z3r>yes I did
14:12<Br4z3r>all is up
14:12<dvs>!alsa checklist
14:13<dpkg>1) add yourself to the 'audio' group (log out and log in again) 2) use alsamixer and unmute channels and raise levels (also try muting some channels) 3) arts or esound stopped? 4) OSS modules unloaded? 5) speakers on? 6) modprobe snd-pcm-oss 7) does "aplay /usr/share/sounds/alsa/Noise.wav" work for root? Test your sound with aplay and a wav so codec issues don't confuse the situation. See also <list alsa users>.

23:14<Hessophanes>bcw: fonts.dir?
23:14<marga>bcw: no idea about the other question, though, but you can find the files under /usr/share/fonts/truetype

23:42<bcw>Hessophanes, i didn't appreciate what you said until just now. (thought you just meant the fonts directory itself) but i don't see anything like DejaVu Sans Mono in there.
23:44<Hessophanes>You just asked what links font names and the files they come from, and I just pointed out that mkfontdir assembles the font names from all files in a directory and writes them to fonts.dir.
23:44<Hessophanes>But that's not the whole truth for ttf files...

23:49<Hessophanes>Neither does it here, but you if you run ttmkfdir and mkfontdir in /usr/share/fonts/truetype/ttf-dejavu and then add that path to your X font path (xset fp+, xset fp rehash), they should appear in xlsfonts.
23:50<Hessophanes>(The two commands will generate fonts.scale and fonts.dir files in truetype font directories, respectively.)
23:50-!-phrosty [] has joined #debian
23:51<bcw>ok, but where do the font names get written?
23:51<Hessophanes>ttmkfdir/mkfontdir scan the current directory and write their output files there, unless you tell them to behave differently.

23:58<bcw>maybe i'm confusing how gnome and X itself handle fonts.... i'm really wondering how gnome knows the fonts' proper/capitalized names, it seems; mkfontdir(1) says it lowercases the name, and xlsfonts shows them that way, but gnome appears to know better
